          2015 Recap      Cache   Translate Page      

Waiting until the last possible moment to write these recap posts seems to have become a tradition for me. This year, I decided to follow up on last year’s goals and list a few new ones for 2016.

Ship Cushion

cushionapp.com

On July 14 of 2015, I finally shipped Cushion, the freelancing app that has absolutely consumed my life for the past two years. The day went off without a hitch and I watched as a wave of new users signed up to try it out. Ever since, I’ve been trying my hardest to grow it into a sustainable app that I could turn into a full-time career. So far, I’m about halfway there, and I’m ecstatic about Cushion’s future—especially this upcoming year. I plan to hire a few freelancers to help get Cushion to the next level, which is both exciting and terrifying.

Use spreadsheets

Cushion Expenses

I didn’t take advantage of spreadsheets as much as I had hoped this past year, but I did use spreadsheets to manage Cushion’s expenses page as well as track my business expenses. After suffering through accounting software since I started freelancing, I pulled the plug and replaced it with spreadsheets. With a small amount of extra work, I have everything in a flexible format that doesn’t cost a dime. (I would gladly pay for a human-friendly service that focuses on ease and exportability.)

Continue existing routines

Instead of continuing my gym routine, I actually cancelled my membership and I haven’t been back since. I would’ve continued going if it weren’t for the gym’s outrageous (though not surprising) fees for pausing a membership. I did sign up for an indoor basketball league that starts in January, so hopefully that will get me back into a healthy routine.

One week between client gigs

casper.com

I’m happy to share that I’ve gone a step further than one week between client gigs. Because of my focus on Cushion, I’ve been fortunate enough to take between 1-3 months off between clients this past year. Early in the year, I worked with Project Florida on the Sum website (RIP). Over the summer, I reuinted with Oak Studios to help with Siteleaf 2.0. And in November, I collaborated with Casper on their fancy new homepage. I don’t think I’ll be as lucky in 2016, but maybe I can get Cushion to a point where I don’t need clients—who knows with freelancing.

Book a few speaking gigs

I didn’t speak at a conference in 2015, but I did book a speaking gig at Create Upstate in May. I can’t wait to share what I’ve learned from bootstrapping Cushion and balancing freelance work while running an app. I hope to book a few more talks throughout the year, so if you know a conference that would be a good fit, let me know!

Take more photos

My wife, Jen, lettering at the studio

I beat myself up over not taking as many photos as I once did—especially after digging through old hard drives and finding that even the “bad” photos are incredibly valuable to me years later. Going forward, I need to capture my life on a daily basis. Even if I never post the photos anywhere, I will make it a necessity to record at least one “experience” each day. I know I’ll regret it if I don’t.

Read more books

Again, I didn’t read as many books as I anticipated I would, but I did finish The Martian in 9 hours—a personal record! (6 of those hours were on a flight and I simply couldn’t put the book down after that.) For 2016, I think I’ll have more success by establishing a reading schedule. Instead of picking a book and reading it whenever I remember to, I need to designate time throughout the week to slow down and bury my head in a good book. I’m starting Ready Player One right now, so if anyone has a suggestion for the next few, I’d love to hear.

Play more video games

In 2015, I played plenty of video games. It’s easy when your wife plays more than you. After breezing through the remastered Grand Theft Auto V, Arkham Knight, and quitting The Last of Us out of pure fear, I’m now deep into Assassin’s Creed Syndicate and Star Wars Battlefront. I don’t know what to tackle once I’m done with those two, but I love free roaming games.

Ride my bike

It pains me to say that I only rode my bike a few times in 2015. I still have it, so there’s always hope for 2016, but now that my studio is a short, relaxing walk away from our apartment, I can’t imagine I’ll start anytime soon. I should really plan day trips to areas of Brooklyn I’ve never been and ride there. I know of dozens of coffee shops I still need to visit, so maybe that should be my driving force.

Take a trip outside of Brooklyn every 3 months

Jen and I at Coopers Rock, WV

I‘m proud to say that we traveled a fair amount this past year. We weren’t one of those couples who is constantly instagramming exotic locations around the world, but we at least got out of the city every three months—traveling to Upstate New York, San Francisco, Atlanta, Portland, and West Virginia. After reaching that goal, I realized that traveling every three months isn’t enough. For 2016, the new goal is to take four big trips with a few shorter trips in between. So far, we already have Joshua Tree and Palm Springs booked for February along with a week in Austin for July. And, I can guarantee that we’ll return to Portland again in the fall.

In 2016

Looking ahead, I plan to focus on quality of life. This doesn’t only mean experiencing more, but also taking care of myself. I need to slow down, work less, and reduce unnecessary stresses in my life.

Embrace the freelance schedule

Jen and I practically live at the studio with how much we work, so I want to battle that with a more flexible schedule. Instead of racing to the studio in the morning and zombie-walking home at night, I’d like to start a couple days a week without an agenda. Since we also tend to work the weekend, I want to start treating Wednesday like a mid-week weekend. Hopefully, that will break the week up better and help prevent those stretches when we forget to take time off. We really need to take advantage of the most appealing aspect of freelance—not having a schedule.

Contribute to open source

I know this entails more work, which is against my theme for 2016, but I feel the need to give back to the coding community. I try to write about my process and experiences as much as I can, but I haven’t really shared much code over the years. After years of coding in private, I miss having code out in the public for the world to reference and utilize. I’d be happy with even contributing the occasional one-line pull request.

Spend time in the kitchen

Our tiny kitchen in Brooklyn

For those who don’t live in a tiny apartment or rely on Seamless for dinner, you might have a difficult time grasping the fact that we don’t use our kitchen. Now that we have a new floor and more space, I really want to spend more time in our “closet with a stove”. I’m not much of a cook, but I know I can follow a recipe. Even if this only results in cooking dinner once a week, I’d feel accomplished.

Establish a better backup system

For how cautious I am in real life, most people would be shocked to know that I don’t backup much of my data. All of my code is on Github and all of my other work is on Dropbox, but everything else is on a few hard drives that aren’t backed up anywhere. The plan for 2016 is to have a local RAID 0 hard drive system for working files in combination with Backblaze backing up everything to the cloud. I know Murphy’s Law can come into full effect at any moment with drive failures, so I need to make this priority one.

Write 2016’s recap before New Year’s Eve

Lastly, I want to write next year’s post with plenty of time to spare before the New Year. Here’s to 2016!


          03-25-2019 CS Colloquium: Anand Iyer (University of California, Berkeley) - Scalable Systems for Large-Scale Dynamic Connected Data Processing       Cache   Translate Page      
Speaker: Anand Iyer, University of California, Berkeley Talk Title: Scalable Systems for Large-Scale Dynamic Connected Data Processing Series: CS Colloquium Abstract: As the proliferation of sensors rapidly make the Internet-of-Things (IoT) a reality, the devices and sensors in this ecosystem-”such as smartphones, video cameras, home automation systems and autonomous vehicles-”constantly map out the real-world producing unprecedented amounts of connected data that captures complex and diverse relations. Unfortunately, existing big data processing and machine learning frameworks are ill-suited for analyzing such dynamic connected data, and face several challenges when employed for this purpose. In this talk, I will present my research that focuses on building scalable systems for dynamic connected data processing. I will discuss simple abstractions that make it easy to operate on such data, efficient data structures for state management, and computation models that reduce redundant work. I will also describe how bridging theory and practice with algorithms and techniques that leverage approximation and streaming theory can significantly speed up computations. The systems I have built achieve more than an order of magnitude improvement over the state-of-the-art and are currently under evaluation in the industry for real-world deployments. This lecture satisfies requirements for CSCI 591: Research Colloquium. Biography: Anand Iyer is a PhD candidate at the University of California, Berkeley advised by Prof. Ion Stoica. His research interest is in systems with a current focus on enabling efficient analysis and machine learning on large-scale dynamic, connected data. He is a recipient of the Best Paper Award at SIGMOD GRADES-NDA 2018 for his work on approximate graph analytics. Before coming to Berkeley, he was a member of the Mobility, Networking and Systems group at Microsoft Research India. He completed his M.S at the University of Texas at Austin. Host: Barath
          Out Mayor Pete Buttigieg Gets Some Traction Following CNN Town Hall      Cache   Translate Page      

Openly gay Mayor Pete Buttigieg of South Bend, Indiana, appears to be building some momentum in his bid to become the Democratic candidate for president in 2020.

This past weekend, Buttigieg took part in a CNN town hall at the South by Southwest festival in Austin, Texas.

Also taking solo turns on the stage were Rep. Tulsi Gabbard of Hawaii and former Rep. John Delaney of Maryland.

But by many accounts, it was Mayor Pete who found the most traction.

While he isn't out-polling former Vice President Joe Biden or Sen. Bernie Sanders, Buttigieg showed he knew how to make the most of an opportunity.

Veteran political expert and chief strategist for the Obama campaigns, David Axelrod, gave Buttigieg high marks and predicted an uptick in his standing among the other candidates.

 

 

During his hour onstage, the 37-year-old displayed impressive poise and composure while throwing some shade on the Trump/Pence administration, including his now infamous “cheerleader for the porn star presidency” description of Vice President Mike Pence.

The former Navy intelligence officer and Afghanistan war veteran also took aim at Donald Trump’s National Security Advisor, John Bolton, who has defended the invasion of Iraq for years.

Referencing Bolton’s suggestion that the U.S. use military force in the current conflict in Venezuela, Buttigieg replied, “I don’t understand how somebody leading us into the Iraq War is allowed near that situation.”

He also addressed some issues specific to the LGBTQ community.

The two-term mayor reaffirmed his support for the Equality Act, which would bring uniform civil rights protections to LGBTQs across the nation by adding sexual orientation and gender identity to existing civil righs laws.

He also called for an end to the “war on trans Americans.”

“For a transgender teen to get the signal from the White House that the highest officials in the land can’t tell the difference between her and a predator and make it harder for her to go to the bathroom shows you just how out of whack the climate is in our country right now. We've got to end the war on trans Americans and we need a federal Equality Act that would say that you cannot be fired just because of who you are or just because you love.”

 

There was also a fairly innocuous but human moment that occurred when CNN’s Jake Tapper tried to clarify how to pronounce the mayor’s last name.

Noting that Buttigieg’s husband has indicated a slightly different pronunciation (“I don’t want to get in the middle of a marital squabble, but…”), Tapper asked the mayor for the definitive answer.

Buttigieg said his name quickly (which sounded like ‘Booda-judge’) but added that either option worked, and at home, he just goes by "Mayor Pete."

The day when reporters blithely ask a presidential candidate about daily interactions with his husband has come.

 

Clearly sensing the appearance had gone well, Buttigieg was the only participant in the town hall to make a direct appeal from the stage for donations to his campaign.

According to CNN, Buttigieg had the single biggest fundraising day of his 2020 campaign after his appearance raising more than $600,000 from over 22,200 donations in the 24 hours after the event televised on CNN.

Brandon then reverses the action. You'll feel the passion between these two as Austin's stress is quickly released.

Armon just turned 18 the week before this trip and we promised to throw a Birthday party for him, though he didn't quite realize the type of party it would turn into. After Armon blows out his candles, he's blindfolded in preparation for his surprise gifts. His "gifts" turn out to be the other boyz pinning him down, and smearing the cake icing on his body, only to lick it off. The rest of the scene is unrehearsed and we didn't know what would happen as the boyz took over. All we could do was to try and keep up with all the hot action. Let's just say that Armon sure gave the boyz a workout, hmmm or is it that THEY gave him the workout? The boyz finish by covering Armon's body with their own homemade frosting.

          3 anuncios por un crimen (Three Billboards Outside Ebbings, Missouri)      Cache   Translate Page      


1er anuncio: Ira. En esta semana, como protesta por la inoperancia de la justicia, dos grupos de distintas personas adaptaron la idea que tiene Mildred (Frances McDormand) en 3 anuncios por un crimen: poner tres vallas en que se señala la lentitud de las autoridades para hacer frente a distintos crímenes. No es un simple caso de la vida que imita al arte. Más bien se trata de una prueba de que el filme capta el espíritu de los tiempos. En el ambiente gravita tanto la furia y el dolor debido a injusticias sufridas, como se escucha un llamado lleno de rabia para remediar tales situaciones. Este es uno de los méritos del largometraje, que atrae precisamente por la convincente interpretación de McDormand, una víctima henchida de indignación. Esto es una explicación, además, para el éxito y la atención que genera una película desigual como esta.



2do anuncio: Caos. A propósito de Room 237, Jonathan Rosenbaum se quejaba de que los críticos no parecían darle tanta importancia a la idea de que una obra artística tuviese una coherencia con determinado planteamiento estético. Todo podría sumarse aleatoriamente, entonces, sin que nada lo cohesionara (ni siquiera el propósito de unirlo todo aleatoriamente). Una coherencia de la quecarece 3 anuncios por un crimen. La película pasa del clamor por justicia de Mildred al drama familiar de Willoughby (Woody Harrelson) y de ahí a la increíble transformación de Dixon (Sam Rockwell), sin hacer énfasis en ninguna de estas historias, como si se tratase de relatos separados que se han cosido con premura. Lo más insólito de la recepción del filme es que incluso se le alabe por su perfecta dramaturgia. En el desenlace, no hay claridad de si los realizadores querían imitar el flujo de la vida diaria (carente de dramaturgia), o arriesgarse a hacer de 3 historia conectadas 3 facetas de un solo drama. El director Martin McDonagh no es Robert Altman para sortear de modo satisfactorio el primer tipo de película, ni es suficientemente hábil como para hacer una variación arriesgada de la dramaturgia clásica. El caos termina por dominar el largometraje, por desgracia. 


3er anuncio: Redención. En primer plano teníamos la rabia de Mildred, de trasfondo nos embarga el anhelo por redimir nuestras culpas. A pesar de presentarse como una audaz forma de poner el dedo en la llaga, la película se decanta por el reconocible relato de una segunda oportunidad. Una que le otorga una salvación problemática a uno de los personajes, valga decir. 3 anuncios por un crimenlidia con conflictos que persisten en la sociedad estadounidense; sin embargo antes que indagar sobre ellos, termina por solucionarlos con un cambio milagroso. Por supuesto, todos merecemos segundas oportunidades, así como estas oportunidades han sido fuente inagotable para que el cine se haya usufructuado de ellas como un repetitivo bálsamo. El filme de McDonagh resulta mucho más conformista de lo que en principio promete. Puesto de este modo, el largometraje oculta todavía más los problemas raciales y sexistas que inicialmente parecía enfrentar, al recurrir a los remedios que hemos visto hasta la saciedad. Más todavía si se tiene en cuenta que si tuviéramos un patrón unificador en el filme, ese no es el relato de Mildred, sino el de Dixon. Dicho esto, también es excesivo atribuirle un discurso reaccionario al largometraje. Los realizadores intentan enfrentar nuestra caótica realidad a través de una narración audaz en la que un drama local refleja las contradicciones y virtudes de un país. Un intento fallido, no obstante. 3 anuncios por un crimen cuenta múltiples relatos, pero no logra hacer de ellos uno solo.

Questions about the prescriptions are referred for the pharmacist, though the pharmacy technician handles other duties like filling the prescriptions, stocking the shelves, cashiering, delivering medical devices, reviewing information to stop drug interactions and verifying received prescriptions. Many independent pharmacies offer home overall health care aids, for example walkers and bathroom safeness units. This includes receiving prescription requests, counting and weighting prescriptions to ensure that they are accurate, preparing prescription labels, filing and organizing prescription orders, caring for customer transactions and insurance related issues, and much more. Authorities, online drugs, wholesalers, clinics and mail order facilities, retain the services in the remaining pharmacy technicians.

          These 3D-printed homes can be built for less than $4,000 in just 24 hours      Cache   Translate Page      

New Story printable homes 7

  • Last March, the 3D printing company Icon produced a 350-square-foot tiny home that cost $10,000 and took just 48 hours hours to build.
  • The company was confident that it could print a larger structure in just 24 hours for even less — around $4,000 — since the printer wasn't running at full speed. 
  • A year after its prototype was released, Icon is now selling an upgraded version of its 3D printer.

Printable homes represent the latest wave in construction, but they're not always cheap or easy to build.

In March, New Story, a housing nonprofit based in San Francisco, and Icon, a construction-technology company that designs 3D printers, defied these stereotypes by producing a $10,000 tiny home in just 48 hours.

Icon called the structure "the first permitted, 3D-printed home in America."

Read more: A French family just became the first to permanently live in a 3D-printed home

At 350 square feet, the house was far cheaper than the average tiny home, which has a price tag hovering at around $25,000, but can often reach six figures. Before using 3D-printing technology, it took New Story eight months to build 100 homes, each costing about $6,000.

While the prototype was being developed, Icon's printer, known as the Vulcan, was running at only 25% speed. That gave the companies confidence that they could build a 600- to 800-square-foot home in just 24 hours for $4,000 or less.

When it comes to producing an average-sized home — around 2,000 square feet — the savings aren't quite as stark. A year after releasing its $10,000 prototype in Austin, Texas, Icon told the Wall Street Journal that printing a 2,000-square-foot home would cost around $20,000.  

More remarkable is the fact that the company's upgraded printer, the Vulcan II, is now available for purchase, and could soon be used to produce affordable homes in places like Austin and Latin America. 

Icon's first 3D model offers a glimpse of what the machine could produce in the future. Take a look. 

SEE ALSO: This 24-year-old uses a 3D printer to make prosthetic limbs for people in the world's poorest countries

The Vulcan II can produce a home seamlessly onsite, without having to piece together individual units.

The printer churns out layers of cement, which amass to form the walls of the home. Non-printed fixtures like doors and windows are installed later. 

The Vulcan II is capable of producing walls that are up to eight-and-a-half feet tall and up to 28 feet wide.



The printer is designed to be mobile and weighs about 3,800 pounds.

The Vulcan II is operated by a tablet, which means only a few workers are required to produce a 3D home. 



It's also made to withstand rural weather conditions, meaning it could operate during a power shortage or without access to potable water.

The home's cement mixture is also able to withstand extreme weather conditions.

          Princeton applying for new bike path grant      Cache   Translate Page      
PRINCETON — Princeton’s Bicycle/Pedestrian Commission is applying for a $102,150 competitive state grant to build a bike path along Route 26, which would stretch from the Super 8 hotel to City Council Park.

The commission held a public hearing in city hall Monday evening, which is a requirement of Illinois Bicycle Path Grant program.

Austin Taylor, community planner with North Central Illinois Council of Governments, conducted the hearing and said the grant is a 50/50 match; 50 percent will be covered by state monies funneled through the Illinois Department of Natural Resources, and the other 50 percent would be covered by local contributions.

If Princeton is awarded the grant, the city would be responsible for $102,500. City Manager Rachel Skaggs, who was present during the hearing, said the city has plans to cover the costs with private donations, staff labor and athletic tax revenues from the future sports complex.

The bike trail would be about three-quarters of a mile long. It would be an off-road bike path, about 10 feet wide.

Taylor said the city will be competing against other cities and park districts around the state for the grant. To enhance the city’s chance of being awarded the monies, Taylor said citizens, advocates and members of the Bicycle/Pedestrian Commission can submit letters of support. However, there’s a short time frame of when the letters can be accepted. The application deadline is March 14.

Anyone interested in writing a letter of support may email it to Skaggs at rskaggs@princeton-il.com.

The city should know by April 1 if it’s been awarded the grant.

          A Deeper View and Meaning on Love      Cache   Translate Page      
This image represents a kind of love that is undying yet eternal, between a man and his significant other, the woman. This is proven by the attitude of the subjects and contrast. As seen, the male is the sun and the female is the moon. Both look calm and even-tempered. The sun needs the moon just as much as the moon needs the sun, they do not need Mars or Mercury to attain the peace of mind they have found with each other. They accompany one another daily, this image also gives off the idea of having each others back. A true relationship can conquer any type of high or low, in this case, since they are the sun and moon, they are apart physically but together emotionally, no type of distance can break their bond. People search for their better half for some or most of their lives, and when they find that person, it is like all the puzzle pieces fit with no struggle, just as their relationship has formed so flawlessly. The term “love is in the air” blends perfectly with this image, they surround the world with the trust and love that they found from each other. This image shows how love can be shared not only through people, but through animals as well. This is shown through the attitude of the subjects and the relationship between the subjects. When looking at this image, the idea of suffering comes through. They both look like they have been through one too many exhausting days by the wrinkles on their skin and the way the male lion leans onto the female, he leans on her like he has had enough of the pain and is looking for her support and sympathetic love to get him back up on his feet. Their facial expressions look drained of strength, like some sort of low has been occurring in their lives. It seems as if they are in a battle for something, but without each other it would be nearly impossible to do. They rely on one another to keep them sane enough to be able to get through this misery. Just like image 1, they have each others back through thick and thin, nothing can interfere with the powerful bond they have formed with one another.


An eternal love is the perfect expression for this photo. As seen, these two people have died in each others arms, holding each others face and their legs are intertwined. These people knew that their time was coming, they did not want to be with anyone else when the time did come. The love these people have grown became the only thing they had, not another shell of a human is near. They wanted their last few breaths on this planet to be with one another. Just imagining what a world would be like where you only had one person to be with during your death would be difficult, but perfect at the same time. Having that one person you love so much be with you at a time like this shows that they care for you just as equally as you do. You can’t change who you die with and this person knew that they had chosen the right one, their final decision involved one another to be present. The attitude of the subjects show that this was planned, this is what they wanted, to be together during their last few minutes of life. This is an embrace that never dies and their love will be continued on for thousands of more years.



Marriage, the promise to love one another forever and the commitment to keep each other sane. The attitude of the groom shows how much he loves his bride to be. His facial expressions look surprised, just like he’s thinking “wow, this is who I am marrying and staying with for the rest of my life”. His happiness shows in both images clearly, he couldn’t of asked for more of a perfect person to be marrying. Tears of joy are spread throughout this day worldwide for everyone who marries. The true colours of a groom are shown when he first lays his eyes on his bride, they are looking at his future and in this image, he loves every part of it. The way the bride shrugs her shoulders shows how she is just as happy as her groom. Just as the image with the lions, the male looks at his other as someone that can be trusted with their life. There is only one person that is not apart of your family that is capable of gaining that kind of faith, it is the person you truly love with everything you have and you know that they do too. Being married proves to yourself, your partner and your peers that this is the person who you can rely on with your most delicate belongings and jaw-dropping secrets.

          Pickathon Adds Phil Lesh, Karma Rivera, Reptaliens, and More to Its 2019 Lineup      Cache   Translate Page

Karma Rivera
Karma Rivera Miss Lopez Media

This morning, Pickathon added several acts to its 2019 lineup, and it's quite a mixed bag. The biggest announcement is that Phil Lesh—the Grateful Dead's now-septuagenarian bass player—and his Terrapin Family Band will headline Thursday at the Mount Hood Stage, and will play again Friday at the Woods Stage. Bringing in a jam band god like Lesh and the Deadhead crowd he draws could slightly alter the flavor of Pickathon this year.

Additions I'm excited about: Portland rapper Karma Rivera, the psych-pop weirdos of Reptaliens, and Canadian folksinger Ora Cogan, whose voice channels Hope Sandoval and Karen Dalton over shrieking, orchestral strings on her latest album, 2017's Crickets. Also, the Richard Swift Hex Band—a tribute to the late Oregon musician and his final album, The Hex, released posthumously last September. A press release says the band will include "Foxygen’s Jonathan Rado, Dr. Dog’s Eric Slick, and Portland's very own Pure Bathing Culture," as well as other special guests.

Names I didn't recognize but, after some Googling, am excited to see: Self-described "beat scientist" Makaya McCraven, whose 2018 record Universal Beings is like a waking dream (especially the track "Mantra," which conjures '50s jazz harpist Dorothy Ashby); Altin Gün, a Turkish psychedelic funk band; straightforward Austin country-bluegrass band the Tender Things; Canadian singer/songwriter Dan Mangan; Ibibio Sound Machine, a London-based disco-pop group led by the enigmatic Eno Williams, who sings in both English and the Nigerian language of Ibibio; and Appalachian folk duo Vivian Leva & Riley Calcagno.

A name I didn't recognize and was honestly pretty afraid to Google: Viagra Boys, a Swedish punk band with a song called "Sports" that lists a few sports, as well as some things that most certainly are not sports (example: "Baseball/Basketball/Wiener dog/Short-shorts/Cigarette").

Anecdotes and Observations, Reflections and Critical Remarks* 

March 12th, 1801. — About sixteen years ago, a relation (who I think had a daughter) of Daniel de Foe, the author of Crusoe, lived in Broker Row, Moorfields. He was an old man, and kept a small shoemaker's shop, and had done many years; but I am not quite sure that the relationship was on his side; it might be on his wife's.

The notices commonly put upon walls, for bill-stickers to read and tremble, are generally worded with a threat of their being prosecuted, &c. I noticed a board affixed to the Tabernacle of G. Whitfield, [1]  worded thus — 'Please to take notice, if any Bills are put against this building, they will immediately be taken down.'

————

Providence has a very difficult task to please the creature MAN; the latter neglects his proper avocation, Agriculture, to go in search of black eyes and bloody noses, commonly called military glory, and then blames his Maker for not sending him a proper supply of food. — Publican's Newspaper. [2] 

————

I think a small kind of carriage to hold one person might be made to go on the ice with great velocity, if the whole strength of the rider could be exerted for that purpose. By the help of a sharp spike, or a pole with three or more spikes, to strike or lay hold on the ice, a great weight might be put in motion. Perhaps some such childish contrivance as this may be in use, though unknown to me. I should like to try it, and convince myself of its practicability. As to the material point, guiding the carriage, I can conceive no method; I like to see skaiting, and I should like to see this. Such a light thing on wheels might be tried on land; but I doubt the labour would be too much. This nonsense makes me think (as indeed I have always done) what a pleasure it must be, to be able to draw.

————

I never see a fine prospect but I wish to bring it away with me. The house and grounds at Wakefield, I have in the storehouse of memory; but I should like to have them on paper. I should extremely like to have a view of Honington Green, as it was till the Inclosing Act took place. Wakefield I may (though unlikely) see again; but my native Green, with its daisies, I never shall. To take such a small bit of ground and divide it into three, was hardly worth while. What man, with a sack of wheat on his back, would stoop for one grain?

Inclosing Acts! I do not much like the rage for them. They cut down the solemn, the venerable tree, and sometimes plant another, — not always; like a mercenary soldier, who kills more than he begets. Resolved — As shepherds are thus going out of fashion, and smiths, &c., coming in: could I not make the old steeple lament the destruction of shades as old as itself, and make a shepherd reply? &c. &c. But it grows near 'witching time of night,' and I perceive I am writing nonsense. If I had had a critic here at my elbow, he would have found it out long ago.

Remarks on the Garden Spider.

August 14, 1801. — This morning observed a garden spider, who had one of his own species in durance, holding him suspended, but without much appearance of a web. The prisoner was alive, but a mere skeleton. After a while he was suffered to fall, or the wind forced him from his captivity; but, in falling, he unfortunately struck against a half-formed web, the architect of which I had just been watching, and observed, that all the lines leading from the centre to the extremities were finished; and he was busy, going a continued circle, and joining each with a fresh web, which he drew from his posteriors, at regular strokes, by an extension of his longest legs behind. The beforementioned prisoner fell against his web, and he immediately left work to secure him, being still alive, and having legs not at all diminished, though his body was wasted. His new conqueror seized him, and, rolling him up in a strong web, dragged him to the centre, and there left him secure, and returned to his work, which he soon completed. I had observed him about a quarter of an hour previous to this adventure, and remarked that he caught a number of very small flies, which abounded on every weed, after much rain in the night; and I was not a little surprised that these minute creatures did not stop his progress, but were instantly devoured; not as I expected, by sucking their bodies dry: he took them up very orderly, and very distinctly, and devoured them, wings and all, without leaving the smallest appearance of a fragment. He had eaten seven of these flies before the spider fell in his way.

August 20, 1801. — A spider of this kind, of an enormous size, has now a web, of about a foot in diameter, hung with spoils, against a wooden fence in the yard. I have repeatedly seen them working their webs, but never could see them begin. The insect, here mentioned, has attached his work on one side to the fence, from which it projects obliquely, and is suspended to a branch of a vine, at the distance of five feet from the circle of the web. As the suspending lines are very strong, and run exactly horizontally, without any intermediate support, it is wonderful to me, to think how they could have been carried so far. A double five foot line, which leaves the fence in this direction, must have been a curious work for him.

In the outline here given, the upper sketch is looking down on the work; the under one is looking horizontally.

The body of the spider being nearly half an inch in length, he has more than twenty-four times his length in one foot, and, consequently, one hundred and twenty times in his suspending lines. Now, taking the standard of a man at five feet six inches, one hundred and twenty times his length, will be six hundred and sixty feet, or two hundred and twenty yards; about three times the height of the Monument. [3]  If we were set to tie the tops of the steeples of London together with a cord, without scaffolding, should not we be puzzled to contrive it? We should go to school to spiders, and ants, and bees; but of all these — the spider does his work alone.

September 9, 1801. — This morning, extricated a bee from a web, but without any signs of life. Another web contained a bee larger than the common honey bee; he appeared completely enveloped in a winding-sheet of the web, of a very large spider, whose premises he had unfortunately trespassed upon. Thus it is evident that this tiger of an insect devours creatures larger than itself. If the means by which he is enabled to do so were common to the beasts of the forest, how dreadful would be a net spun by the lion or the tiger, from which the horse and his rider could not disentangle themselves, no more than a strong bee can from this pest of the garden.

September 14th, 1801. — Having expressed surprise at the work of a spider, I can now trace with certainty his operations and his power, so as to satisfy myself entirely. Often wondering how came all the long; webs that tickle our noses and glitter in the sun, reaching from one tree to another, and often floating loose in the air; I, a few days past, broke down the web of a garden spider, which was suspended from a building to a fence across a pathway of about five feet, and much the same height from the ground. When his suspending lines were broke, himself and his web fell flat against the building. An hour or two after, I observed him in motion, and wished to know how he would contrive a communication with the fence as before.

He seemed, for a while, as if taking a general survey of the distance and bearings of the objects around; and then letting himself down from a spout to the distance of about six inches, hung suspended, not in their usual position, head downwards, but with one side downwards, and all his legs greatly extended. In this posture I found that, without the help of his legs, he possessed a power of ejecting a web to what length he pleased, and with surprising swiftness. It had exactly the appearance of smoke issuing through a pin hole; only, in this case, the stream instead of dissipating, became a lengthening line, that floated with the action of the wind, and visibly extended from its source, as fast, or faster than the nimblest black beetle can run. He emitted thus, about seven or eight feet of web, and then ascended to the spout, and waited the event. The line was carried by the wind cornerways, and lodged against the building, and consequently became useless. He did the same again, with the same want of success, and repeated his work a fourth time, when I caught hold of his floating line, at about four feet long, and when extended to five, I drew it over the leaf of a bean, and it became fast; but he, still lengthening it, the line was very slack. After a few minutes he applied himself to drawing the rope tight, which, when done, he travelled upon it to the opposite side, and made my fastening secure; then back again, emitting a new web as he went, and joining it to the other to strengthen it, till it became visibly improved.

Next, starting from one end, he proceeded, without splicing a new strengthener, to the centre of the horizontal line, exactly to the centre, and there lowered himself down to the ground, and drew this perpendicular line very tight, or else it was his weight that did it. The ground beneath was a gravel path; he there fastened this line to the gravel, at E (see sketch), by pressing it down with a motion peculiar to themselves, and then ascended again: at which time he had formed an obtuse angle, by drawing down the horizontal line; then, forwarding his work, he drew the line D, to which the lines from the centre were to be fastened. To form the line D, he traversed the lines B C, bearing the line D in his claw detached, and, fastening it at the upper end of B, proceeded to draw the lines from A to C and B in the same manner. From this outline, the formation of the lines from the centre to the extremities appeared easy.

I have sometimes broken down a part of their work, and have observed that they will carefully gather up the fragments of the web, and either leave it in white knots, or appear entirely to swallow it.

A small spider had fastened a line of his work, to the outermost lines of a web, belonging to a very large one; the latter hastened to the confines of his premises, and cut asunder the stranger's holdfast, something like cutting a boat adrift. I find it a common opinion, that the spider, when he catches a fly, destroys him by poison; it may be so; — but I see, by close observation, that his strong dependence is placed in folding him rapidly up in a web, which he draws from himself abundantly for the purpose.

————

I wonder whether I shall hereafter think these moments mispent in watching a spider? — At present I think their nature and properties strange, and not yet entirely known, even to naturalists; their whole proceedings amazingly curious; their degree of instinctive contrivance, and their exactness of figure in their squares and angles, and visible use of every line, truly astonishing.

The spider, while descending by his web, was baited by the flies, in the same manner as we see a hawk baited by the smaller birds*.

October 4th, 1802. — Found last week a letter in the Gentleman's Magazine for 1759 (I think), by a Mr. Masser, 'on the Gossimer,' [4]  wherein he has been correct in his account of the spider having an ejecting power, as to the formation of his web. I found this by observation last summer, and was pleased at the discovery, for to me it was such. But his account of flying spiders is not clear and comprehensive. Does he mean spiders with wings? or, spiders with a power of unlimited elevation, by an ejectment of web?

* It is now known, that the spider sometimes exhausts the material from which his web is formed; in which case, he is in imminent danger of starvation. I once saw a spider reduced to this extremity, running wildly about on a sunny board. Several large flies, who seemed to enjoy his distress, tormented him, by settling within an inch of his nose; and when the spider made a rush to seize one, he would take a short flight, and settle down again at about the same distance. This game lasted nearly two hours; when the spider's strength and patience appearing to be quite worn out, he retired to a hole. —

Ed. [Note by Joseph Weston, editor of The Remains]

Spiders again.

Proved, by observing a spider with a small microscope, that when I had broken down a web in the garden, he carefully gathered up the fragments, and moistening the accumulated web in its approach to his mouth, swallowed it all again.

General Observations.

In addition to the foregoing extracts, I now wish to say a word or two in farther explanation. The nests of this kind of spider are generally attached fast to woodwork, in a dry situation, in size not exceeding an hazel-nut, appearing like a knot of raw silk, of an exceeding close texture. I put one of these into an unstopped bottle, and, forgetting to watch it minutely, I at length found it as follows: From the mouth of the bottle to a shelf above, was about eighteen inches; and I found the eggs hatched, and not less than several hundreds of connecting lines of communication between the bottle and the shelf, covered in every direction with the infant swarm, entirely yellow. From this I think it evident, that the power of ejecting the web is exercised at an early stage of life. I think too, from every consideration, that their preying on each other is a matter beyond a doubt.

I have somewhere read, that the garden spider uniformly makes his web of great or small dimensions, according to the approaching degree of sunshine or rain, and thus, with the utmost precision, foretels the weather. This I have not yet proved, but am much inclined to give credit to the assertion.

Custom not only imposes on us modes of dress, and sometimes of conduct, which our reason does not approve, but prevents us from adopting many a useful practice or improvement. I have read somewhere, of the northern nations, wearing a contrivance of wood, to screen the sight, from the reflection of sunbeams from the snow, which, unobstructed, is injurious to the sight. Custom there, does not forbid them to preserve their eyes; but here, where in the summer months, the sunbeams are reflected from the gravel of the roads, and from the pavement of the streets, in almost an intolerable manner; — where the evil of too much light is evident in every one's face, and every eye is half-closed to exclude it; — where thousands, in their walks of pleasure, would gladly gaze on the distant objects before them — the hills, the villages, and the woods, if the quivering of the sun's rays, and his flood of light would permit them; where thousands (myself amongst them) come home with the anguish and languor of a headach, and with eye-balls parched and painful, from having been forced to meet a light ten times stronger than they could bear; if a person, I say, was to put a crape over his eyes, or any contrivance to remedy the evil, the novelty of his appearance would be a real trouble to him, by subjecting him to the scoffs and insults of fools: and yet the pleasure of walking with ease to one's self, is a thing which no one will contemn, when he consults reason only. The prevalence of too much light is to me a serious evil, and I am convinced is hurtful to the sight. Our mothers tell us not to gaze on the sun, and not to read or work by a bad light, thus warning us that extremes are to be avoided; and our feelings tell us to double our clothes in winter, and to strip in summer; to eat our broth when it is cool enough, and not scald our throats; and many other good things would our feelings tell us, if they were properly attended to.

What a wide difference may be seen between the manner of bringing up children, as to the chance they have of seeing in their youth, what we call the beauties of Nature. If I had been placed in my infancy in the situation of one of the boys who worked in the same garret with me, — had I possessed the power of writing poetry to please the world, — I must have wanted materials at least, to have written what I have. Poor Jem Bailey, was, with four others, left motherless; his father turned them over to the workhouse, situated somewhere in Southwark. When Jem became old enough, he was sent out as errand-boy, to any one who might want such a boy, for which he got nothing but food. He lived with a Doctor, and carried nostrums from morning till night: his master giving him a livery-coat, to raise his own consequence with those he attended. (This was his best coat when he came as an apprentice to the boot-trade.) Another of his masters kept a fishing-tackle shop, in Crooked-lane, and of course part of his trade was to have maggots or gentles to sell to those, who had patience enough to angle in the New River. To obtain this bait, a quantity of bullocks' lights was exposed to the flies on the leads, of the house; and often have I heard the poor boy express the abhorrence he felt, when called from his dinner to serve a ha'p'orth of gentles, which was done by shaking the lights, and picking up the fruit.

Lord Kenyon's [5]  integrity, as stated in the accounts of trials in the newspapers, (for I never saw him), gives me the highest idea of the character of a Judge, which I have ever found. His office, arms him with power: but the exertion of power is marked with the peculiarity of the possessor. The determined and pithy reproofs he gives to notorious guilt, are the most shining examples of honesty to be found in the language.

At the time the Albion Mills were burned, [6]  I never saw the newspapers; and led so recluse a life, that three days elapsed before I heard of it, though I lived in Chiswell-street; a proof that there may be now living in Paris, persons, who saw little or nothing of the great events which have taken place there. Again — when five hundred houses were burning at Ratcliffe, [7]  some years ago, I did not know it till the next night! A man's mind may be travelling half over the globe, and yet know little of what is doing next door.

'Full many a gem of purest ray serene,
'The dark unfathomed caves of ocean bear.' [8] 

The sovereign contempt with which too many of the wealthy, and (I fear also) of the learned, look upon what are termed 'the dregs of the people,' has often raised an equal contempt on my side, for that wealth, which engenders such thoughts of the immense distance, which those 'dregs are from the surface.' The distance is not so great as the vain man flatters himself it is; I have known mechanics, who in general information, and in powers of intellect, have stood decidedly before thousands of their own rank. Is it not decidedly so among gentlemen — one clever fellow to a great many dull ones? I have heard more sense and truth in a tap-room, than I have sometimes heard in better company; and there is nothing more striking to me, (and I have been placed so as to observe it,) than that total ignorance of the manner of living among the poor — that superficial and vague idea of who and what they are — of what they talk, and of what they think! Nothing to me has appeared more strange or more disgusting, than finding amongst those ranks, raised above the mechanic and labourer, such a mean opinion of the poor! Gentlemen, 'tis true, seldom enter alleys, or see the domestic habits of those nests of human wretchedness: and they think, perhaps, that poverty must of necessity be accompanied with ignorance ; but I find that a man who works for his living, and reads whatever he can catch——————! His whole soul is bent to that point; and if nature has given him a talent for observation, no situation can make him contemptible. If a great and noble mind is granted by nature to only one in a thousand — does she order that that one, shall not be born in an alley? That he must be rich, or great? Does nature, when she makes an orator, provide him a seat in the House of Commons? — A poor man with a strong mind will make himself respected in his circle, and make useful remarks on every occurrence. A rich man, with great native powers, will do the same. A poor man, with a moderate understanding, will remain at the bottom of his class. A rich man of inferior powers will do the same, in spite of all that can be done for him.

A short time ago, the publicans' paper, [10]  after stating that the price of corn and flour did not fall in consequence of an abundant harvest, added — 'Let our avaricious tyrants blush! Let them dread the vengeance of parliament! The guardians of the people!' By placing certain words in italics, I suppose it to be wholly ironical; if not, the joke is better still: for what dreadful punishment will a man inflict on himself?

In their paper of to-day they finish a paragraph of the same sort thus:— 'How long these plans of extortion are to continue, Heaven only knows — for to Heaven only can the people look for relief.'

Now by this last sentence, one would think they had found out, that the dealers in corn were not likely to blush, or to tremble; and that many of them were among the guardians of the people.

Walker's Gazetteer [12]  describes Stone-henge, and says that one of the stones measures, according to Doctor Hales, twenty-five feet long, seven feet broad, three and a half feet thick, and says, that no mechanical power now known, could raise such a weight. Guthrie's Grammar, [13]  describes the Pagoda of Chillambrune, near Porto-Nova, on the Coromandal Coast; its entrance beneath a pyramid a hundred and twenty-two feet high, built with large stones above forty feet long, and more than five feet square.

And of the Pagoda of Seringham, the outer wall of which makes a circumference of four miles; its southern gates are supported by pillars composed of single stones, thirty-three feet long, and nearly five in diameter. This wall encloses six others at equal distances, twenty-five feet high, and four thick!*

Dined lately in company with Mr. Peel [15]  and his brother, who have brought the skeleton of the Mammoth from America: both clever fellows, and masters of their study.

Dimensions of the Skeleton now exhibiting in Pall

Mall, November 25, 1802.

Ft. In.
Height over the shoulders 11   0
Length from the chin to the rump 15   0
Width of the hips and body   5   0
Length of the under jaw   2 10
Weight of the same, 63 1/2lbs.
Width of the head   3   2
Length of the thigh bone   3   7
Ditto of the large bone of the fore leg   2 10
Largest circumference of the same   3 2 1/2
Length of shoulder blade   3   1
Longest rib without cartilage   4   7
Length of the tusks, defences, or horns 10   7
Circumference of one tooth or grinder   1 6 1/2
Weight of the same, 4lb. 10 oz.
The whole weighs about 1000 lbs.

This skeleton was dug up almost entire, but the tusks were rotten, so that artificial tusks (made in imitation of a real one, which now lies in the room in a decayed state), are put to this skeleton; but the use of these tusks appears doubtful; and perhaps were not placed as they are here. His teeth, prove most clearly, that he did not feed on vegetable food, and yet his swallow appears much straitened, for so immense a creature.

This skeleton was found lying at the bottom of a bog, several feet from the surface. Parts of the bones of this kind of animal have been found on the banks of the Ohio, and in various other parts of America, to the number, it is supposed, of fifty; so that the animal, though now an extinct race, has been numerous; and as remains of shell-fish are found with the bones, it is conjectured that an inundation destroyed the race, and left us to wonder at what must have lived, though so much larger than any animal now known to exist — not excepting the elephant. Bones of this creature are found vastly much larger than the skeleton. A thigh bone now lies in the room, some inches longer than those in the skeleton, and a tooth of seven pounds weight is now at Philadelphia.

Miss Johnson, with whom I dined at the White Hart Inn, Fetter-lane, was personally acquainted with Burns; who, breakfasting with her, drank a large tumbler of beer previous to taking either eatables or tea, saying that he had been up till three in the morning, and had drank too much wine. On Miss J.'s remonstrating with him as to the injury to which he exposed his health, he replied, 'Madam, they would not thank me for my company, if I did not drink with them. I must give them a slice of my constitution.' I wish Burns had given them thinner slices of his constitution, that it might have lasted longer; [16]  I then might possibly have had the pleasure of seeing him. He died but two months after I began composing The Farmer's Boy! though at that time, and long after, his death and history were unknown to me.

Amongst the glory of England (her unparalleled Charitable Institutions), one more, I think, might be added. A fund to purchase beds for new married couples, under proper regulations, and with the accustomed recommendations as to character, and deserts. This heavy expense (to the poor) is a serious affair, and if not accomplished before the fruits of marriage smile them in the face, it then (when most wanted) becomes more difficult still. I have said of Walter and Jane —

Give love and honest industry their way,
Clear but the sun-rise of life's little day. [17]

Lumping of ages together, as is sometimes done in the newspapers, I cannot relish. It means nothing. I remember seeing six or seven men of great age mentioned, with the common observation of their united ages making so many hundred years. Amongst them were John Wesley, Macklin, [18]  and the late Lord Mansfield. [19]  They were all old men: but the wonder was not increased by the adding into one total, the age of many contemporaries, any more than if we were to say— In the parish of Hackney have seven men, whose perpendicular height when placed on each others' heads, amounts to the surprising total of forty-three feet!

At the time of the illuminations for Nelson's victory, [21]  I thought if I had had the means to have sported a transparency, I might have quibbled thus:—

Duncan, Jervis, and Howe, [22] 
What say you all now —
(For by you were our triumphs begun:)
In the midst of alarms.
You fought well with both arms—
But Nelson has beat them with one!

I remember, too, beginning a song on that subject:—

Old Nile lately cried from his seven-mouth'd bed,
'Can such echoes proceed from a cloud?
For ages I've roll'd, and my banks overspread,
But never heard thunder so loud,' &c. [23]

The great Oak in Euston Park. — Myself, my wife, and my daughter Hannah, (then nine years and a half old), embraced his rough rind at arms length, touching our fingers; and could thus encompass it all but about half a yard. By observation afterwards, I found the girth of this tree to be fifteen feet, in May, 1801.

'Children, like tender oziers, take the bow;
And as they first are fashion'd, always grow.'

So says Mr. Gay. [24]  I was fifteen years old, when I first thought the last line untrue. I have more than doubled that age; and I think so still. It will not do for a maxim.

One half-acre of land, opposite the Prince of Wales's at Brighton, sold for 3500 guineas. My old shopmate, Charles Jones, states, that between twenty and thirty years ago, the Duke of Athol, speaking on the subject of the land-tax in the House of Peers, offered to sell a thousand acres of land, right and title for ever, for a thousand half-crowns!

————

Charles Jones's brother lent a shopmate his great coat, on a particular occasion. On his return home, this shoemaker declared that he never walked the streets so uncomfortably in his life. Wherever he went, the beggars were after him at every corner; and he concluded by protesting that he would not wear a good coat upon any account whatever. He most likely kept his word; for he was a terrible drunkard.

Could not the great features, of the history of the world, be represented by something like a firework? Suppose a number of fixed lights to represent the rise and fall of empires. Carthage might brighten to its zenith; and then Rome might arise in all its glories, and decline likewise. The Ottoman power, and the caliphs of Arabia; the blazing of the butchers of the East; the Tartar princes, and all the principal transactions recorded in history. If this could be done on a sufficient scale, and the ground-work be a map of the world, and the lights be made governable, as in Walker's orrery [25]  ——But this is dreaming! — dreaming!

It is very natural that the working poor should, in their endeavour to finish their work, and to add a few shillings to their day's or week's reckoning, sometimes transgress against the time allowed by masters for the taking in, and paying for their work; and it is just as natural for them, when reproved, to attempt some excuse. Mr. Chamberlain, who employed many hands (my brother and self amongst them), used to have an answer ready for one common excuse. — The journeymen or their wives would plead that 'they had made all possible haste to shop.' 'That's saying nothing,' says Chamberlain; 'you should have set out sooner.'

This answer might be applied in several other cases with equal justice:—

To the worldling, who has lately become such, and who grumbles that he has saved no more;

To the sailor, who loiters away a fair wind, and loses his market;

And, perhaps, to the man who marries at forty, and gets a young family — 'You should have set out sooner.'

Dr. Walker, [26]  who is just returned from Egypt, where he spread the vaccine inoculation in the army and navy, relates the following anecdote of the author of 'The Rights of Man,' which Paine himself had given in a company at Paris, where Dr. Walker was present. When a boy, he (Paine) went, in company with his sister — I think it was — to Fakenham wood, in search of nuts; and being by themselves, they wandered out of their knowledge, and knew not the way out again. In this dilemma, Tom, proposed that his sister should stand at a certain spot, while he went a short distance to climb some tree, to see his way out of the wood. He climbed the tree, and missing his hold, fell to the ground, and remembers reviving at the foot of the tree, and finding his sister supporting him. He was bruised, but with whole bones. They were belated and frightened; and both agreed to keep it a secret from their father: and Tom, knowing that his father made a practice of taking pills, thought that pills might do him good too. He took them accordingly, and luckily without producing any bad effect. He got well, and all was secret.

In relating this story of Tom Paine, Dr. W. remarked, that there are many thousands who will probably exclaim, 'What a pity that he had not broke his neck!' But, on the other hand, continued he, when I heard him relate it at Paris, one exclaimed, 'The guardian angel of liberty was near thee, Thomas.' Dr. W. is a warm republican. I think him an intelligent, a good, and an honest man.

Memorandum of Folly. — My good old aunt Austin had many sickly children; burying nine under three years old. With one of them, which was very ailing and fretful, a superstitious cure was attempted. I remember an old woman (Mrs. Osborne, of Honington) being employed to 'cut the child for the spleen.' The child's ear was cut so as to bleed, and the blood applied on the temples in the form of a cross, and, I believe, with something repeated by way of charm; for she had charms for the ague, &c. — The child died.

Remember having my fancy set to work by a strange and ridiculous song, about a child going to school and meeting the devil, and having a long conversation with him, and showing him a great deal of wit and repartee:—

'What have you in your basket?'
Says the false, false knight.
'Bread and butter for my dinner,'
Says the pretty little baby;
And still by the bush she stood.

'Whose sheep are those in the pasture?'
Says the false black knight.
'Some of them are my father's,'
Says the pretty little baby;
And still by the bush she stood.

'Which of them are your father's?'
Says the false, false knight.
'All those that have tails behind'
Says the pretty little baby;
And still by the bush she stood.

'Whose stacks of corn are those?'
Says the coal-black knight.
'My father's,' &c.

'I wish they were all on fire,'
Says the false, false knight.
'And you all in the middle on 't'
Says the pretty little baby, &c. [27] 

Thus it proceeds for about twenty verses, and I doubt I forget the best of it — what would more certainly have determined its origin, whether from monks or old women, or from some village bard, when the hero of the ballad, the coal-black knight, was in high repute. If this is an ancient ballad, and of no uncommon sort, in English villages, how does it happen that ancient Scotch ballads possess so many beauties? Or are they only sifted from heaps of rubbish like the above? If so, perhaps a collection of English might be formed by the same means. This ditty, sung to the thrum of the spinning-wheel, had its attractions; and this girl (now named Thompson), and one of the Whiteheads — I think, Sarah — when a girl, were the only persons who ever sung the ballad to my fancy.

Another song, which my brother Isaac knew when a boy, begins —

'There was an old ewe, who had but one horn,
Chronomo no no none;

—— could never keep her out of the corn.
Turn round the wheel, my Bunny.

The butcher came in, with his sharp knife,
Chronomo, &c.
And scared the old ewe almost out of her life.
Turn, &c.

She ground her teeth, and she mumbled her pegs,
Chronomo, &c.
And she ran at the butcher, and broke both his legs.
Turn, &c.' [28] 

This is evidently a spinning-wheel song; but perhaps of later date than the former.

The last Sunday in March breakfasted with Mr. Rogers; visited Mr. Stothard; and having to see the Duke of Grafton at five, spent the intermediate hours in Kensington-gardens: and recollecting that a razor was to pass my chin before I went there, I sought, and found a little shop in Kensington. The barber was gone half a mile from home, to shave a gentleman. He presently came in, and throwing of his hat and wig, gave vent to his perspiration and his anger both together. The person was gone out when he got there, and he had his walk for nothing! — How abominably these things plague a poor man, and disconcert his week's work; and he has no remedy — no action for damages ! — The bald-pated, angry old man began his operations upon me; and I was not quite free from apprehensions on account of his perturbation and appearance — but trust not appearances! When he had nearly finished, he ordered his girl to wet the corner of a cloth — I wondered what he wanted with it. It was instantly applied to my face ; and though this was the first time I had had my face washed by a barber, it appeared to be his custom. These scenes remind me of 'Roderick' and his friend 'Strap.' [29]  Smollett would have made something out of it. Observed, while refreshing myself at Kensington, a tradesman's board, inscribed

NEVERS,

Corn Dealer; Malt, Hops, &c; Coals,

wholesale and retail;

Charcoal, Cheesemongery, &c.

The proximity of charcoal and cheesemongery, looks rather whimsical.

In our trade, when any one reads the newspapers or a book, by the neighbourly custom of sitting all in one room, and by that great privilege, of its not hindering the progress of our work, we have nothing to do, but to discuss the subject. Commumty, is perhaps the point, to which those who say that 'shoemakers are politicians,' might trace the solution of their wonder. But even a newspaper is not all politics. No one can read the daily prints without either learning, or feeling, his want of geographical knowledge. This must lead him to maps; and maps to reflection: and this reflection, unless it can be proved that it leads him to discontent, is praiseworthy, and full of pleasure to himself.

The highest ground in London is about Newgate-street. A stone, with an old inscription, is fixed on the wall of a baker's house, in a passage leading into Paternoster-row. [30]  I was lately led, from a kind of inadvertent curiosity, to look up to see who had the honour of living on the highest ground, and found the name James Bloomfield — Wonder, if from my country?

The brig Deane, Captain W. D. which arrived at Liverpool on Thursday, from Kentucky, with a cargo of cotton, was built on the Allegany river, in Pennsylvania, and came down the river Ohio into the Mississippi, having passed the great falls of the Ohio, and sailed a distance of nearly three thousand miles within the land. She is the first vessel, which ever came to Europe, from the western waters of the United States.— British Press, July 12, 1803. [31]

August 4, 1804. — State of the Nation (prophetical). — We shall have one out of three; namely, either

A sudden peace;

A powerful continental diversion*; or,

A tremendous attack, and war on our own shores.

* A powerful continental diversion took place a year after writing the above: but Napoleon has now, at the battle of Austerlitz, compelled them to be quiet, and will return upon us again. I write this upon New Year's Day, 1806.

Mackintosh on the Revolution of France, p. 23. [32]  — 'The deficit, or inferiority of the revenue to the expenditure, at length arose to the enormous sum of 115 millions of livres, or about 4,750,000l. annually.'

March, 1810. — Mr. Arnold, painter, of Buckingham-place, near Fitzroy-square, has an extract from the parish register of Bowes, or Brows, in Yorkshire, which records the burial of Robert Rightson and Mary Railton. The former died in a fever; the latter almost instantly, on hearing the bell toll for her lover. To this we owe the beautiful ballad of 'Edwin and Emma,' [33]  as appears likewise from the first edition of the ballad now in his hands.

REFLECTIONS.

I almost repine that I know nothing of astronomy. Mr. Lofft often mentions to me things relating thereto, in his letters; I wish I could understand him — 'Past one o'clock: a cloudy morning!' Thus comes in the 15th of March, 1801. That poor man, perhaps, has but eighteen-pence a night for being in the cold — to bed! to bed!

When I think on Egyptian architecture, it seems an oak in a forest of shrubs. Time sweeps away the habitations of men — the under-works of art — as man sweeps away the underwood of a forest: but the pyramid and the oak remain. If London should sink into oblivion, or at least dwindle into a village, what will be the most imperishable thing in the ruin? The foundations of the bridges would stand a good tug against the assaults of time, and the proud cathedral would hold its elevated ruins full of owls and ivy; still to be wondered at, when the dwellings should be no more. The greatest undertakings that I know of, now going on, are the Wet Docks at the Isle of Dogs. [34]  Thirty acres of land sunk to so great a depth seems a huge attempt; but it is only digging a hole after all! If it could be possible for London to become a Babylon, the chafings and surgings of old Father Thames — for HE would not stop –– would leave no traces of labour or art in the docks; nature would soon blot out the boast of a nation, and the strong arm of the invariable tide . . . . But I was going to say, that I could almost wish for some edifice, in or near the capital, that should perpetuate the site of the city. And yet if the walls of Babylon were indeed as substantial as they are said to have been, where are they gone?

When London-people walk out of town, like bees from a hive (only seldom on so good an errand), how entirely unacquainted they appear to be, with the warning which the rising clouds give of the approach of a shower. It looks strange, if not laughable, to see a number of well-dressed people, sauntering with the utmost composure from their homes, full in the face of a black and threatening cloud, which in ten minutes is to involve them in trouble and vexation. But though the countryman keeps his eyes on the heavens, and preserves a dry coat, he could not turn a corner, or escape a hackney coach, with the dexterity of a Londoner. Every one to his trade!

A brother-tradesman in the City-road has inscribed over his stall,

'MASON,

Well done, shopmate! 'Shoes neatly mended,' the common sign for a cobbler, you, no doubt, objected to: but you are a cobbler at last, and why should you be ashamed of it?

I think that ambition, courage, and sensibility may 'run in the blood,' as we term it. Should any one of these qualities, or any conspicuous vice or virtue, actually belong to a family, which happens to govern a nation, such inherent quality ought to be expected in any of its branches; even if the party is not known to be of the family, or is in disguise, as is frequently represented in novels and plays. But that a hidden something, an innate nobility, a royalty by nature, should be looked for in every great personage, or person raised accidentally to power, is nonsense in itself, and it is almost criminal to propagate it as a doctrine. Mr. Home has made Norval a true Douglas, [35]  possessing his forefathers' courage; but I have read several things, which I could not now name, which, in this unnatural distortion of character, were shamefully disgusting. Perhaps this is only saying that they were not written by such men as Home, who knows what belongs to character and what to accident.

          At SXSW, New Dutch Wave Presents an Optimistic View of the Future      Cache   Translate Page      

For the third year in a row, a selection of top Dutch designers are representing the Netherlands at SXSW in Austin. New Dutch Wave brings together six cross-disciplinary innovators who are thinking through some of the world's biggest issues and presenting new ways forward. They all seem to ask the question: "If not now then when?" The selected designers (including our very own Dave Hakkens) were chosen based on the following criteria: impact, innovation, experiment, and originality. Some, like Hakkens, will be expanding on existing projects, while others will debut new work at SXSW. Read on to find out more about three of the projects.

Urban Safety Kit by Bas Timmer

Bas Timmer was inspired to create the Sheltersuit—a coat that doubles as a sleeping bag—after his friend's father was turned away from a maxed-out shelter and ended up dying of hypothermia on the streets. He used sleeping bags gathered from the aftermath of music festivals to create the first samples and launched Sheltersuit in 2014. Since then, Timmer has distributed 5,100 coats to refugees and homeless people around the world and picked up the Dutch Design Award in 2017 and the German Design Award in 2018.

In addition to being wind and water-proof, the Sheltersuit is insulated and comes with a hood, an integrated scarf, and large pockets. The bottom portion zips on and off to give the wearer mobility and a seamless transition between the coat's two functions. The suit also comes with a backpack that can be used to store the coat/sleeping bag as needed.

At SXSW, Timmer is introducing the latest evolution of his project: an Urban Safety Kit comprising the tools one would need to ensure their safety on the street: access to medical help, protection from violence, and connectivity. With support from various industry and research partners, Timmer has developed a prototype that embeds smart technology to tackle these issues. He's added sensors that pick up heart rate and body temperature and emit alarms if hypothermia is detected, as well as a proximity alert sensor that will react if a person is robbed, or worse. Timmer also integrated solar panels into his latest design which will allow wearers to charge their devices and remain connected to society.

Precious Plastic by Dave Hakkens

You're probably already familiar with Dave Hakkens' long-term project Precious Plastics. A few years ago the Dutch designer and Core77 contributor decided to take a grass-roots approach to the complicated process of large-scale recycling and developed simplified, DIY versions of industrial recycling machines that anyone could replicate. Maker spaces, workshops, and designers around the world have used the open-source instructions to build their own tools, recycle plastic and manufacture new plastic products on their own.

Fundamentally a project about social engagement, Hakkens continues his movement at SXSW in a workshop developed alongside Andre Amaro. Together with 25 students from Texas University, they will pick up plastic waste around Austin's Waller Creek and immediately turn it into various one-of-a-kind products that will be available for sale.

KozieWe and KozieMe by Tom Kortbeek and Roos Meerman

The KozieWe is an interactive wall tapestry that reacts to motion and allows users to generate their own musical compositions. When you touch the wall, you'll hear an instrument playing. If another person starts interacting with it, another instrument will be heard, and so on. Tapping into research that shows a link between music, sound, and the recovery of memory, KozieWe has been used to help dementia patients living at home and in care facilities. The sounds can be personalized to better suit individuals. For example, a soundtrack of forest sounds might help a nature lover reconnect with those memories.

Whereas the KozieWe was designed to foster connections between multiple people, Kortbeek and Meerman's latest design, the KozieMe, is more intimate. Inspired by research into multi-sensory environments, the design is a simple plush pillow with built-in speakers that are activated by touch. Highly intuitive, it has an SD card slot so it can be customized with personal messages.

March 12 is Dutch Design Day at SXSW and participating designers will host a full day of events, including lectures and performances.

2019 SXSW Good Omens nuns

Austin, Texas feels like the center of a nonsensical apocalyptic event of biblical proportions, with random people floating around dressed in vivid white angel wings and evil dark suites characteristic of a demon. Bikers roam the streets, while grifters hold signs and pass out literature to reinforce their insistence that “the end is nigh.”

Also, nuns are literally everywhere. Every. Freaking. Where.

First off, yes, Texas’ weirdest city is full of rowdy, unapologetic sinners from all walks of life. Secondly, no, none of them caused this — rather it’s an enormous promotional blitz Amazon Studios created at the annual SXSW conference for its adaption of the novel Good Omens written by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett [...]

          Rubicon Theatre Continues Season with FUDDY MEERS      Cache   Translate Page      

Rubicon Theatre continues the company's 21st "Coming of Age" season with the hilarious and harrowing, politically incorrect comedy FUDDY MEERS by playwright DAVID-LINDSAY-ABAIRE. In this outrageously funny roller-coaster ride of a play, Claire, an amnesiac. wakes up each day having forgotten the details of her life. This morning, like all mornings, her seemingly devoted husband Richard greets her with a cup of coffee and a scrapbook of memories. But when he steps away, a limping, lisping man claiming to be Claire's brother pops out from under her bed and says he is there to save her. He takes her to her mother's home in the country, where Claire meets a naïve man with a foul-mouthed puppet, discovers her husband and son have kidnapped an aggressive lady cop, and comes face-to-face with her past.

FUDDY MEERS is helmed by Rubicon Artistic Associate Jenny Sullivan. The production stars returning Rubicon veterans PRECIOUS CHONG (Dancing at Lughnasa, The Glass Menagerie) as Claire and company member Joseph Fuqua (King Lear, Incognito, All My Sons - Ovation Award) as Claire's chipper husband Richard. Stephen Caffrey, best known for his three seasons as actor and director on "Tour of Duty," (recently seen in The Cripple of Inishmaan for Antaeus), plays Limping Man. Louis Lotorto, whose numerous credits include King Lear and The Tempest at Rubicon and An Enemy of the People at Ahmanson) plays the mild-manner Millet, whose darker side is expressed through his puppet Binky. Tracy A. Leigh (Obie and NAACP Award recipient, Baby Dance: Mixed at Rubicon) appears as Puerto Rican cop Heidi, who harbors a secret. SERYOZHA LAPORTE, a graduate of PCPA Theaterfest, plays his first leading role on the Rubicon mainstage as Claire's troubled teen Kenny. And Deedee Rescher (multiple seasons with Laguna Playhouse) make her Rubicon debut as Gertie.

"In this wild and wacky laugh-out-loud comedy, nothing is what it appears to be," says Rubicon Producing Artistic Director Karyl Lynn Burns. As one of the actors in the play recently remarked, the play 'feels like a cross between 'Sesame Street' and David Lynch."

Director Jenny Sullivan considers FUDDY MEERS to be even more timely now than when it was first written by Lindsay-Abaire in the late 1990s. "Claire's amnesia," says Sullivan, "has been a necessary way for her to escape from the reality of her incredibly complicated life. Through the process of the play, she begins to recall and reclaim her past, but finds that dealing with quickly-changing accounts of her story is an exhausting journey."

"I think so many of us today can relate to Claire's feeling of being overwhelmed and confused by conflicting information," continues Sullivan. "Hopefully this production will provide some perspective on our current dilemma and our longing for an objective truth."

Set design for Rubicon's production of FUDDY MEERS is by JIM PRODGER, lighting design by MIKE BILLINGS, costume design by Pamela Shaw, sound design by KENNY HOBBS, set dressing and prop design by T. THERESA SCARANO, and fight choreography by YVANS JOURDAIN. The Production Stage Manager is Dale Alan Cooke.

FUDDY MEERS opens March 16 with low-priced previews beginning March 13. The production continues through March 31 at Rubicon's home in Ventura's Downtown Cultural District, 1006 E. Main Street (the corner of Main and Laurel)..For tickets, call 805.667.2900 or go to www.rubicontheatre.org.

Updated at 1:28 p.m. ET

Federal officials have charged dozens of well-heeled parents, including actresses Felicity Huffman and Lori Loughlin, in what the Justice Department says was a multimillion-dollar scheme to cheat college admissions standards. The parents allegedly paid a consultant who then fabricated academic and athletic credentials and arranged bribes to help get their children into prestigious universities.

"We're talking about deception and fraud — fake test scores, fake credentials, fake photographs, bribed college officials," said Andrew Lelling, the U.S. attorney for the District of Massachusetts.

Lelling says 33 parents "paid enormous sums" to ensure their children got into schools such as Stanford and Yale, sending money to entities controlled by a man named William Rick Singer in return for falsifying records and obtaining false scores on important tests such as the SAT and ACT.

Describing how Singer worked to present his clients' children as elite athletes, Lelling said, "In many instances, Singer helped parents take staged photographs of their children engaged in particular sports. Other times, Singer and his associates used stock photos that they pulled off the Internet — sometimes Photoshopping the face of the child onto the picture of the athlete" and submitting it to desirable schools.

"Singer's clients paid him anywhere between $200,000 and $6.5 million for this service," Lelling said.

The scope of the case is massive — total of 50 people have been charged in the admissions scheme. The Justice Department said in a statement that dozens of people in multiple states have been arrested but gave no further details.

The scheme operated from 2011 through February 2019, Lelling said, adding that in most cases, parents paid Singer between $250,000 and $450,000 per student.

"These parents are a catalog of wealth and privilege," Lelling said. "They include, for example, CEOs of private and public companies, successful securities and real estate investors, two well-known actresses, a famous fashion designer and the co-chairman of a global law firm."

The parents were already able to give their children "every legitimate advantage," Lelling said, added that they "instead chose to corrupt and illegally manipulate the system for their benefit."

Other defendants in the case include university athletic coaches and college exam administrators — some of whom are accused of accepting bribes. Court documents state that the scheme targeted these schools as part of a "student-athlete recruitment scam": Yale University, the University of Southern California, Georgetown University, UCLA, Wake Forest University, Stanford University, University of San Diego and the University of Texas, Austin.

"There will not be a separate admissions system for the wealthy," Lelling said. "And there will not be a separate criminal justice system either."

The charges are part of a complex case that has been kept under seal. Documents related to the case were revealed Tuesday, as Singer pleaded guilty to a number of federal crimes from conspiracy to commit racketeering and money laundering to obstruction of justice, Lelling said.

The parents were charged with conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

"Singer owned and operated the Edge College & Career Network LLC ('The Key') – a for-profit college counseling and preparation business – and served as the CEO of the Key Worldwide Foundation (KWF) – a non-profit corporation that he established as a purported charity," the Justice Department said in a statement.

On its website, The Key promises to "unlock the door to academic, social, personal and career success." The foundation says it "has touched the lives of hundreds of students that would never have been exposed to what higher education could do for them."

The court documents detail numerous examples of how the scheme worked. For example, Lelling said former Yale women's soccer coach Rudy Meredith took $400,000 to designate a potential student as a recruit for the team — boosting the student's admission prospects — despite knowing that the student didn't play the sport competitively.

Once the student was accepted to Yale, her relatives paid Singer approximately $1.2 million, including a $900,000 to one of KWF's charitable accounts, according to court documents.

Last April, Meredith allegedly met with the father of a second prospective student in a hotel room in Boston — a meeting that was secretly recorded by the FBI. In it, Meredith offered to designate the man's daughter as a soccer recruit in exchange for $450,000, court documents state.

Meredith resigned his long-held post in November. In a statement to NPR, a Yale representative said:

"As the indictment makes clear, the Department of Justice believes that Yale has been the victim of a crime perpetrated by its former women's soccer coach. The university has cooperated fully in the investigation and will continue to cooperate as the case moves forward."

On its website, KWF described many of the students it helped as having "only known life on the streets, surrounded by the gang violence of the inner-city."

The foundation says it has worked with a number of groups, from Los Angeles-based Ladylike to the Houston Hoops Youth Basketball Program.

In addition to the 33 parents, a dozen people were indicted for conspiracy to commit racketeering. This is how they were identified in court documents:

Igor Dvorskiy: He worked as a "compensated standardized test administrator."

Gordon Ernst: Former head of men's and women's tennis at Georgetown University — left that role in January 2018.

William Ferguson: He "was employed as the women's volleyball coach at Wake Forest University."

Martin Fox: He was the "president of a private tennis academy and camp in Houston."

Donna Heinel: She "was employed as the senior associate athletic director at the University of Southern California."

Laura Janke: Former assistant coach of women's soccer at the University of Southern California — left role in January 2014.

Ali Khosroshahin: Former head coach of women's soccer at the University of Southern California — left that role in November 2013.

Steven Masera: Accountant and financial officer for the Edge College & Career Network and the Key Worldwide Foundation until Dec. 2017.

Jorge Salcedo: Salcedo "was employed as the head coach of men's soccer at the University of California at Los Angeles."

Mikaela Sanford: She was "employed in various capacities" with the Edge College & Career Network and the Key Worldwide Foundation.

Jovan Vavic: Vavic "was employed as the water polo coach at the University of Southern California."

Niki Williams: Williams worked as a "compensated standardized test administrator."

          Here are the high-flying financiers charged in the college-admissions cheating scandal      Cache   Translate Page      

Stanford Universityturtix/Shutterstock

  • The Department of Justice on Tuesday charged 50 people with participating in a scheme to get students into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches.
  • The parents charged include Hollywood stars, as well as executives at prominent companies, venture-capital firms, and law offices.

The Department of Justice on Tuesday unsealed documents charging dozens of people with participating in a nationwide college-admissions scam.

Among those parents indicted by the FBI are high-flying executives, wealthy real-estate developers, and Hollywood stars. A slew of financiers was also named in the case, including former Pimco CEO Douglas Hodge, Hercules Capital CEO Manuel A. Henriquez, and William McGlashan, a TPG managing partner.

High-ranking schools such as Georgetown University, Stanford University, Yale University, University of Texas at Austin, University of Southern California, Wake Forest University, and University of California, Los Angeles, also appeared in the indictment, court documents show. Federal prosecutors said the systematic scheme of bribery lasted more than eight years, from 2011 to 2019. 

There were a number of finance executives charged. Business Insider has reached out to all of them for comment and will update this story if we hear back. 

Robert Flaxman, cofounder of Crown Realty and Development

Matt Winkelmeyer/Getty Images for LAAA

Robert Flaxman cofounded the Costa Mesa, California-headquartered real-estate-development company Crown Realty and Development in 1994. The firm has been an active local developer in California, investing in a number of notable local projects, such as the retail center Venice Crossroads and a hotel, restaurant, office complex across from Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Crown Realty and Development has a more than 2.3 million-square-foot portfolio that includes retail, hospitality, and industrial projects that spread across California, Arizona, Virginia, Idaho, and Northern California. 

He is accused of participating in "both the college recruitment scheme and college entrance exam scheme." According to court records, he fabricated information on his son's application to the University of San Diego.

He was charged with "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud."



Manuel A. Henriquez, founder and chairman of Hercules Capital

LinkedIn

Manuel Henriquez is the cofounder, chairman, and CEO at Hercules Technology Growth Capital, a Palo Alto, California-based venture-debt provider. The company was an early investor in Facebook.

According to his LinkedIn profile, he has worked in venture capital for over 30 years. Prior to Hercules, he was a partner at private equity fund, VantagePoint Venture Partners. He was also the founder of ON Technology, a software company backed by investors like Kleiner Perkins, Apple Computer, and more.

He and his wife, Elizabeth Henriquez, allegedly "participated in the college entrance exam cheating scheme, on four separate occasions, for their two daughters."

They also "conspired to bribe Gordon Ernst, the head tennis coach at Georgetown University, to designate their older daughter as a tennis recruit in order to facilitate her admission to Georgetown."

He was charged with "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud," along with his wife, according to court documents.

 



Douglas Hodge, former CEO of Pimco

PIMCO

Douglas Hodge is the former CEO of asset manager Pimco. Hodge took the reins of the notable bond manager after Bill Gross, the onetime "Bond King," exited the firm in 2014. In December 2017, Hodge announced that he would retire from the firm.

During his 28 years with Pimco, Hodge grew the company's assets under management from $15 billion to $1.69 trillion. Afterwards, he joined Sway Ventures as a venture partner to help grow the firm's early-stage portfolio companies.

According to the court documents unsealed on March 12, Hodge "agreed to use bribery to facilitate the admission of two of his children to USC as purported athletic recruits, and sought to enlist CW-1 to secure the admission of a third child to college through bribery as well."

He was charged with "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Pimco declined to comment on the matter.

          Must-See Latinx Films at SXSW      Cache   Translate Page      

Image from 'The Garden Left Behind'

Every year in March, Austin becomes the epicenter for all things culture. Music diehards can find their favorite acts playing. Comedy fans can drop by a set or two by established and emerging stand-up comedians. And film aficionados? Well, they have an overabundance of riches. Having established itself as one of the coolest festivals around, South by Southwest (aka SXSW) needs no introduction. This year, their program encompasses 134 feature films including 101 world premieres as well as 64 films from first-time filmmakers.

Moreover, there is plenty of US Latino and Latin American talent to celebrate, both in front and behind the camera. And while we know you’ll be checking out that new Seth Rogen-Charlize Theron film as well as that Beto O’Rourke doc which followed his campaign, we wanted to compile a list exclusively for Latinos. Below you’ll find our favorites from the feature film lineup, from Sundance standout docs about AOC to long-awaited horror films which hope to capitalize on our fears of La Llorona.

The Garden Left Behind

Director Flavio Alves' film centers on Tina (Carlie Guevara), a 30 year-old transgender woman and her grandmother, Eliana (Miriam Cruz), have been struggling to make a life for themselves in New York since emigrating from Mexico when Tina was only six years old.  Eliana longs to return to Mexico, while Tina desires acceptance in America. The ineffable bond formed between the two formidable women has made them not only each other’s stalwart support in a hostile world but a potential millstone as well.

The Infiltrators

Following a successful Sundance Film Festival, where the film received two NEXT Awards Cristina Ibarra and Alex Rivera's film is headed to SXSW. Based on true events, The Infiltrators is both a suspenseful account of a high-stakes mission and an emotionally charged portrait of visionary youth fighting for their community.Co-directors Alex Rivera and Cristina Ibarra are alumni of the NALIP Latino Media Market.

Building the American Dream

Director Chelsea Hernandez' Building the American Dream captures a turning point as a movement forms to fight widespread construction industry injustices.

Red 11 

From Director Robert Rodriguez' own story notes from his experiences in a Medical Research Facility, RED 11 is a horror thriller set in a dark, twisted version of the Legal Drug Research business.

          Tech TalkAt WorkTest and Measurement Differential Lidar Catches "Fugitive" Methane on the Fly      Cache   Translate Page      
From:  IEEE Spectrum

The methane plume imaged from a light aircraft by Methane Monitor: real-time [left] and processed [right].


In 2015, methane accounted for 655 million kilograms  of the 7.1 billion kilograms of greenhouse gases released into the atmosphere of the United States alone. The energy sector was responsible for just under half of the methane released, about 279 million kg—lost product with a value of hundreds of millions of dollars.
So detecting leaks from the 2.6 million miles of natural gas pipelines snaking across America is properly both a business and an environmental priority. Air surveillance has reduced serious pipeline leaks by 39 percent since 2009, but there have still been 250 serious incidents in the past 8 years. These include a San Bruno, Calif., pipeline blast that killed eight people in 2010 and the Aliso Canyon leak in 2016—which released about 97 million kilograms of methane, essentially doubling the Greater Los Angeles area’s usual volume of methane emissions from all sources for a three month period.
Until now, efforts to detect what the industry calls “fugitive emissions” have been constrained by the instrument sensitivity and response times. Airborne surveillance required low-flying, slow-moving, expensive-to-run helicopters.
A new approach increases sensitivity and tightens control of timing and synchronization to permit the system to operate at higher speeds and higher altitudes—allowing a shift from helicopters to faster-moving, higher-flying single-engine, fixed-wing aircraft, which are less expensive to own and operate. The innovation earned Ball Aerospace & Technologies engineers Steve Karcher, Phil Lyman, and Jarett Bartholomew the Engineering Impact Award for Energy at NIWeek 2017 in Austin, Tex. The award was presented on 23 May. MORE

'The Songs Of My Life' is my journey in music...my life in art...and how it all shaped my life and good fortune for the next 53 years in show business. This is my heartfelt tribute to the great composers and lyricists that I had the grand fortune to know. How lucky I was to perform their brilliant works! After all...what good is a voice if you don't have wonderful songs to sing?"

Julie Budd began her professional career at the tender age of twelve, after winning a talent show while vacationing with her family. In the audience, was renowned Producer/Orchestrator, Herb Bernstein, who recorded some of the greatest artists ever known to music, including singer/songwriter Laura Nyro. While producing Nyros' first hit album, Bernstein was also recording the eminent TV talk show host, Merv Griffin. Herb immediately took Julie under his wing and introduced her to Merv at a recording session in New York City. Merv immediately invited her to appear on "The Merv Griffin Show."

What followed as Budd's career blossomed, were over a hundred more invitations from Merv to appear on his show! Today, Julie continues to perform her concerts and one-woman shows, nationally and internationally while adding some of the most prestigious stages to her roster: Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, Kennedy Center, London Palladium, Tel Aviv Performing Arts Center and many of the finest Las Vegas Showrooms.

          These 3D-printed homes can be built for less than $4,000 in just 24 hours      Cache   Translate Page      

New Story printable homes 7

  • Last March, the 3D printing company Icon produced a 350-square-foot tiny home that cost $10,000 and took just 48 hours hours to build.
  • The company was confident that it could print a larger structure in just 24 hours for even less — around $4,000 — since the printer wasn't running at full speed. 
  • A year after its prototype was released, Icon is now selling an upgraded version of its 3D printer.

Printable homes represent the latest wave in construction, but they're not always cheap or easy to build.

In March, New Story, a housing nonprofit based in San Francisco, and Icon, a construction-technology company that designs 3D printers, defied these stereotypes by producing a $10,000 tiny home in just 48 hours.

Icon called the structure "the first permitted, 3D-printed home in America."

At 350 square feet, the house was far cheaper than the average tiny home, which has a price tag hovering at around $25,000, but can often reach six figures. Before using 3D-printing technology, it took New Story eight months to build 100 homes, each costing about $6,000.

While the prototype was being developed, Icon's printer, known as the Vulcan, was running at only 25% speed. That gave the companies confidence that they could build a 600- to 800-square-foot home in just 24 hours for $4,000 or less.

When it comes to producing an average-sized home — around 2,000 square feet — the savings aren't quite as stark. A year after releasing its $10,000 prototype in Austin, Texas, Icon told the Wall Street Journal that printing a 2,000-square-foot home would cost around $20,000.  

More remarkable is the fact that the company's upgraded printer, the Vulcan II, is now available for purchase, and could soon be used to produce affordable homes in places like Austin and Latin America. 

Icon's first 3D model offers a glimpse of what the machine could produce in the future. Take a look.

The Vulcan II can produce a home seamlessly onsite, without having to piece together individual units.

The printer churns out layers of cement, which amass to form the walls of the home. Non-printed fixtures like doors and windows are installed later. 

The Vulcan II is capable of producing walls that are up to eight-and-a-half feet tall and up to 28 feet wide.



The printer is designed to be mobile and weighs about 3,800 pounds.

The Vulcan II is operated by a tablet, which means only a few workers are required to produce a 3D home. 



It's also made to withstand rural weather conditions, meaning it could operate during a power shortage or without access to potable water.

The home's cement mixture is also able to withstand extreme weather conditions.

  • Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have been fixtures at SXSW for years while Snap has been on the sidelines.
  • But with a dedicated space on Rainey Street, string of speaking engagements, and brand partnerships with HBO and Amazon, the self-labeled camera company is going all out for the first time.
  • "We are focused on connecting with our partners and deriving inspiration from other startups here," Jeff Miller, Snap's global head of creative strategy, told Business Insider.  
  • The move signals that the company is maturing and is ready to go mainstream to attract a broader base of advertisers, said Mike Dossett, VP and director of digital strategy at RPA. 

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Facebook, Twitter and YouTube have been fixtures at SXSW for years, shelling out for spaces and scheduling a series of panels and events, while Snap has been on the sidelines. Until now.

The self-labeled camera company is going all out at SXSW for the first time. It's a first-time sponsor and it has a dedicated space on Rainey Street and string of speaking engagements.

It also has showy brand partnerships with HBO, Warner Bros. and Amazon Studios, with its augmented reality technology behind activations including "Game of Thrones'" "Bleed For The Throne" blood donation and experiential effort.

"We love the fact that SXSW connects people across the tech, culture and business communities, and are focused on connecting with our partners and deriving inspiration from other startups here," Jeff Miller, Snap's global head of creative strategy, told Business Insider.  

A marked difference in Snap's approach

The last time that Snap made waves at a festival of this size was when it erected a giant yellow Ferris wheel at Cannes the summer after it went public in 2017. But everything else was largely kept under wraps, with secret meetings and a strict attendance policy enforced at its parties. 

This year's showy presence at SXSW is a marked difference for the company, which for years has been viewed as being secretive and unforthcoming. It shows the company is growing its sales organization to attract a broader base of advertisers, said Mike Dossett, VP and director of digital strategy at RPA.

Snap needs to show that it has a place in advertisers' media budgets, as an alternative or complement to Facebook and Google and change the way it's communicated with advertisers and the public, said Dossett.

The company has had a string of high-profile executive departures in recent months, leading it to install a new leadership team. 

Snap has appointed former HuffPost CEO Jared Grusd as chief strategy officer and Jeremi Gorman, previously head of global advertising sales at Amazon, as its new chief business officer. Founder and CEO Evan Spiegel has also been more visible, speaking at Morgan Stanley's TMT Conference and The New York Times' "New Work Summit" last month.

"This type of thing doesn't happen by accident, it's clearly a part of a broader strategy coming from the top," he said.

'We're driving meaningful, measured ROI'

Snap's new attempt at openness was visible at its gathering space, which it proclaimed as open to all badgeholders to "network, interact with our activations, attend our panels and programming, join us for happy hour, and enjoy food and drinks throughout the evenings," according to an email received by Business Insider.

 "Our value proposition goes beyond the Amazons and Nikes of the world. We want to demonstrate to clients of all sizes that we are a valuable partner for them," said Miller.

The company sees big potential in AR, and believes it is ahead of some of its rivals. It has been sharing its research on the technology and pitching marketers on its AR ad products.

It's also been rolling out products and formats that go beyond engagement metrics and show returns on investment, such as its shoppable ads and commercials product, a six-second, un-skippable format.

"We are a platform with an increasingly engaged audience — we're not just doing things that are novel but are driving meaningful, measured ROI," said Miller.

Snapchat has a specific place in Amazon Studios' marketing budget, its head of marketing Michael Benson told Business Insider in an interview at SXSW.

"The real challenge with any platform is that you have to create marketing and content that is organic to it and entertaining to the people using that platform," he said, adding that Snapchat allows for that.

          IN FLAMES Singer Says CHRIS BRODERICK Is Doing A 'Great' Job Filling In For NICLAS ENGELIN      Cache   Translate Page      
IN FLAMES' singer Anders Fridén says that Chris Broderick is doing a "great" job filling in for guitarist Niclas Engelin on the band's current North American tour. "Niclas had to stay home and deal with some personal things," the singer told Sticks For Stones in a new interview (hear audio below). "We've known [Chris] for 17 years. He was in a band called JAG PANZER, and they opened up for us back then, so we've been friends since. And when Niclas called us, like 48 hours before we had to leave, and he went to the hospital — he had to. So we didn't wanna cancel. Our music is made for two guitars, and we didn't wanna have one guitar playing and everything else on a backing track — we wanted to have someone playing it. We happily found out that Chris was free and he came out and we had a couple of days' rehearsal in Austin before the tour started in Houston. And, yeah, it's going great. We've known him, as I said, for a long time, so we knew it would work on a social level. And [his] guitar [playing] is obviously phenomenal." Fan-filmed video footage of IN FLAMES' first concert with Chris, which took place on February 2 at the House Of Blues in Houston, Texas, can be seen below. IN FLAMES recently completed a short tour with ALL THAT REMAINS and ALL HAIL THE YETI and is currently on the road in North America with WITHIN TEMPTATION. IN FLAMES' new album, "I, The Mask", was released on March 1 via Nuclear Blast (worldwide, excluding North America) and Eleven Seven Music (North America). The 12-track disc reunites IN FLAMES with Grammy-nominated producer Howard Benson (MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, MOTÖRHEAD) who also produced 2016's "Battles". Additionally, the album was mixed by Grammy Award winner Chris Lord-Alge (CHEAP TRICK, LINKIN PARK) and mastered by Grammy-winning mastering engeneer Ted Jensen (PANTERA, EAGLES, GUNS N' ROSES).

OF MICE & MEN was forced to cancel its March 11 concert in Hartford, Connecticut after frontman Aaron Pauley was taken ill. He took to his Twitter last night to update fans on his condition. He wrote: "After a bit of a scare earlier, I'm currently at the hospital being evaluated, per the EMT's direction. Thank you all for the well wishes and good vibes. I'll be sure to update everyone as soon as I get some definitive news." A few hours later, he added: "I've been discharged from the hospital and cleared to perform! Thank you everyone for the well wishes. This was one of the scariest days of my life." OF MICE & MEN recently released a video for a new song called "How To Survive". The clip was directed by Zev Deans (DENZEL CURRY, GHOST). OF MICE & MEN spent much of the fall hunkered down in the studio working on new material with producer Josh Wilbur. "How To Survive" is the first taste of new music from the Southern California quartet since last year's much-praised "Defy" album. OF MICE & MEN is currently on tour with NOTHING MORE. The band will next hit the road with BEARTOOTH in the spring and has just announced additional headline shows, which will take place throughout April and May. "Defy" marked OF MICE & MEN's first full-length release without vocalist Austin Carlile, who left the group due to his ongoing battle with Marfan syndrome, a rare genetic disorder that afflicts the connective tissue holding the body's cells, organs and tissue together.

           Comment on 20 Funniest Norwegian Expressions by Martin Ystenes       Cache   Translate Page      
"Kaste armen i svingen", to throw an arm in the curve. Most young Norwegians today will have problems with this , at least to understand the backgound for this idiom. When my generation was young, for many the most important of all sports events were speed skating. When extra speed was needed the skater would "kaste armene", throw his arms vigorously back and forth to get more power. To "kaste armene" makes the skating much more exhausting, so to save energy the skater would normally let his arms rest on his back, except on sprints and on the very last part of longer runs. However, to use the outer arm to gain speed when running through the curve was more effective. Nowadays, speed skater do this normally on the long runs, but earlier "throwing an arm in the curve" was a very clear sign that a skater increased his speed and looked like a potential winner. Hence this expression was used when someone put some extra efforts to makes things faster. The expression appeared even more confusing because "kaste" can mean both "throw" and "throw away". "Du får kaste armene i svingen" could easily sound to stupid to the one not knowing the expression. (You better throw away your arms in the curve.)

           SXSW 2019: A GovTech Editor's Journey Through Photos       Cache   Translate Page      

AUSTIN, TEXAS — There’s a lot to say about South by Southwest, almost none of which I expected and most of which would go misunderstood by anyone who hasn’t waded into the fray themselves. It’s a difficult creature to nail down.

The locals regard it with a sort of benign loathing, while at the same time being proud that this international phenomenon is in their city. They want you to love it, they want you to spend your money, but they certainly don’t want you to stay forever.

The increasingly popular city has drawn in people from all over the U.S. and new companies seem to set up shop on an almost daily basis. But this success has come with a downside — soaring rent prices and the sort of traffic that only an Angeleno could love.

And Californians seem to be responsible for a lot of it — at least that’s what you’ll hear over and over again.

One clerk, after asking where I was from, urged me, “Don’t tell people that.” You can always spot a Californian by how they downplay their origins with phrases like, “I’ve lived here for years,” or “I’m from all over, really.” 

But all that is beside the point. 

The point is that SXSW is a pretty incredible event. The city and organizers, not to mention the private-sector partners, pull out all the stops to make it happen. It incorporates the top experts and thinkers from across television, film, government, music, industry and then some, and somehow spins it into a fairly cohesive weeks-long undertaking. 

I mean, where else can you find a robot breastfeeding device in the same exposition hall as recruiters for the CIA?

The best way, I think, to experience it beyond going for yourself is through images. These photos are from all over the city. Not all of them have an explanation, but not all of them need one either.

Enjoy.


           SXSW 2019: Can Facebook Handle Its Election Security Role?       Cache   Translate Page      

AUSTIN, TEXAS — The discussion around securing elections broke away from the standard cybersecurity fare and turned to the ill effects of social media and misinformation during a panel at South by Southwest on March 11. 

The panelists, who included representatives from the New York Times, Facebook, the Atlantic Council and BlueDot Strategies, discussed the damaging and largely unforeseen role platforms like Facebook and Twitter have had on elections around the globe.

From the perspective of Katie Harbath, Facebook’s public policy director for global elections, concerning activity started months before many in the U.S. were talking about misinformation and political ads flowing through the platform.

“For me, where I really started to see things shift was not November 2016, but May 9, 2016,” Harbath said. “That was the date of the Philippines [general] election.”

That election was followed in short order by the Brexit vote June 23 and highlighted the need for attention on the part of the company and the social media ecosystem as a whole. Misinformation campaigns, fake accounts and what Harbath refers to as “false news” were showing signs of traction in those elections. 

Harbath said the company’s “new normal” consists of a handful of priorities: taking down fake accounts; dealing with false news; improving transparency around political ads; and countering foreign and domestic bad actors.

“This is our new normal,” she said. “What we are doing now, (and) we are putting a ton of resources in, is — how do we get to a point where we can mitigate as much of the bad as possible, make sure we have the team set up to handle anything that might come our way that we weren’t expecting?”

As examples in the Philippines and U.K. starkly illustrate, the problem stretches far beyond the borders of the United States. Moira Whelan, founding partner of BlueDot Strategies, said the tools once seen as a great democratizing force are now being turned against democratic efforts.

What initially was seen as an opportunity to have robust debates in countries with only state-run media outlets quickly showed the potential for misuse in the global political arena.

“My old job was as the deputy assistant secretary for digital strategy with the U.S. State Department … where I got to, one, convince a bunch of world leaders that social media was a good idea, and then watch as ISIS and Russian trolls tried to tear it all down,” Whelan said anecdotally. 

Now that the proverbial cat is out of the bag and those with an agenda and the ability have platforms to spread their message, what’s to be done? As it turns out, the answer is nothing short of costly and labor-intensive. 

For the Facebook network, which also includes Instagram and WhatsApp, Harbath points to 40 or so teams dedicated to looking at content for signs of foul play. But even with the resources and money that Facebook has, issues arise like context of political commentary, native language translations and a host of other considerations.

“The United States is the exception, not the rule generally in most anything that has to do with an election,” Harbath said.

Partnerships with the likes of the Department of Homeland Security and Federal Bureau of Investigation help the company to coordinate on issues regarding U.S. elections, but Harbath said the problem is multifaceted and often spills off of the pages of Facebook and onto smaller networks that may not have the ability or skill to take action.

“This activity isn’t just happening on our platforms, it can get pushed out to other, smaller platforms that may not have as much money and resources and stuff that we do in which to do this,” Harbath said. “We’re trying to look at, how can we help the overall ecosystem get better at this?”

Graham Brookie, director and managing editor of the Digital Forensic Research Lab within the Atlantic Council, said building up “digital resilience” across the social media and Internet environment is essential to mitigating many of the issues platforms and governments are grappling with.

Before any of that can happen, though, Brookie said understanding the spread and digestion of information in these countries needs to be a priority.

“If you’re going to look at disinformation and how it spreads in that particular community, you need to know how people actually consume information in that community,” Brookie said.

In Macedonia’s naming referendum, for example, Brookie pointed to the fact that much of the information consumed in the country comes from television — to the tune of 92 percent — and social media, specifically Facebook. That's an important factor in determining where to focus efforts that target the spread of disinformation.

The global nature of the problem does not lend itself well to policy creation and simple fixes, but Brookie says a first step in any legislation would be having lawmakers who understand the space.

“First and foremost, I think the bottom line is that you need policymakers that know what the Internet is,” he quipped.

New York Times technology columnist Kevin Roose pointed out the almost surreal nature of the situation and how the sanctity of elections across the globe relies so heavily on private companies in other parts of the world.

“The fact that … the integrity of global elections relies on a few people in California and D.C. and New York is just incredibly strange, and I don’t think we should accept that as status quo because that is the product of intentional decisions that platforms have made to expand into countries where they don’t have enough infrastructure to support safe elections,” he said. “That’s one of the things that I will be sort of looking for in the years ahead — not only can we play a more effective game of whack-a-mole, (but whether) the places that distribute news, whether it’s the cable news channels in the local Macedonian market or the big global platforms, whether they are actually willing to make changes to their products or just sort of beefing up their policy staff.”


           SXSW 2019: Utah, ‘Pajama Court’ and Resolving Cases Online       Cache   Translate Page      

AUSTIN, TEXAS — Within the next decade, it's possible that the majority of small claims court cases could be settled by users online, the same way one might pay a parking ticket or renew a business license.

Accomplishing this, experts say, would benefit both the civil court system and the real people who find themselves navigating it, be it because of child support, debt collection or any number of other reasons. As a result, the court system would get much-needed free time for its clerks and judges to handle larger cases or interact with individuals in person, while residents could settle civil disputes without taking time off work to physically go to court.

In fact, one state is already rapidly headed for this new status quo. That state is Utah, and officials involved with the work there described the how, why and future of the project Monday morning at South by Southwest during a panel dubbed “Adopting Online Courts in Utah’s Legal System.” The panel was a highly engaged one, with lawyers and others in the audience asking questions throughout.

A mission statement for the work came from Utah Supreme Court Justice Constandinos Himonas, a driving force behind the project there.

“Justice is a thing,” Himonas said, “justice is not a place.”

Essentially, what Himonas was saying was that if a small claims case between two people can be settled through the use of a website or apps, it should be. There is no need for both parties to physically go into the court.

How to Digitize Small Claims Courts and Other Cases

The "how" of all of this stems from e-commerce processes that have been used by the private sector for years, dating back more than a decade to systems that the online auction site eBay used and continues to use to settle disagreements between a buyer and seller. The process is called online dispute resolution (ODR), and with it, participants make their cases and see if there is room for a mutual agreement. If need be, a third-party arbitrator helps facilitate. In Utah, this process is now mandatory in many jurisdictions for small claims cases where less than $11,000 is involved.

When a small claims case is filed, participants get a link to the ODR platform in their email, and things proceed from there. The state is still looking into matters of digital equity, but officials are pleased with the early stages of the project, which launched in September 2018. There are three essential components for ODR in this context, said Paul Embley, the CIO and technology division director at the National Center for State Courts — that it operates exclusively online, that it is explicitly designed to assist litigants in resolving disputes or cases and that it is supported by the legal system.

Why Digitize Small Claims Courts?

The "why" here has to do with access to justice, said Amber Ivey, a manager at Pew Charitable Trusts, which is a nonprofit organization working to help digitize these processes in jurisdictions across the country.

The world has undergone sweeping changes in rates of access to justice in the past 30 years, she said. As recently as the 1990s, only 4 percent of individuals in courts were not represented by lawyers. Ivey said the number has now risen, so much so that now in 75 percent of civil cases, one side does not have a lawyer.

While civil and small claims courts do not legally require both sides to have a lawyer, they are without question complicated processes that require an understanding of the law. And whereas one can easily search online for help with things like baking or car repair, the online ecosystem for legal advice is flooded by ads for lawyers and other confusing resources.

There has, in turn, also been a major spike in the number of cases that are defaulting. Defaulting means a person has a claim against them and doesn’t do anything official to respond, which often leads to the court putting a judgment on them that could affect their credit report, which can make it hard to get housing or even employment.

“People are getting called into court and they’re just not showing up for a variety of reasons,” Ivey said. “This is a tool that can help reduce the default rate, and we’re seeing that in other states as well.”

Justice Himonas agreed.

“We have a huge access to justice problem in our country, and it’s something we need to deal with,” he said. “We see ODR as one of the tools to narrow the access to justice gap.”

The Future of "Pajama Courts"

Small claims cases that use ODR, or as some call it colloquially, “pajama court,” will likely be present soon in states other than Utah. In fact, the spreading has already started.

Ivey said that while Utah is the first state in the country to launch online dispute resolution as a tool, there is now a total of 50 jurisdictions doing it throughout 15 states.  

Kim Allard, director of court services for the Utah Administrative Office of the Courts who works with Justice Himonas on Utah’s project, is working to help build it out in a way that will enable collaboration with other states too, creating a more robust platform.

As a result, Utah has seen a fast and sizable drop in defaults among eligible small claims cases. Prior to launching ODR,  71 percent resulted in a default. Now, that number is down to 53 percent, with officials noting that the majority of these cases are related to debt collection.

Justice Himonas sees a bright future for it all, one that extends beyond disputes over relatively small amounts of money.

“The platform these folks have built is robust enough that we can take it to any level,” he said. “It’s not just small claims cases. It’s traffic, it’s misdemeanors, it’s family law, it’s district court cases.”


           RSA Conference 2019: What You Need to Know       Cache   Translate Page      

As the rain fell outside on the Moscone Center this past week in downtown San Francisco, the 2019 RSA Conference inside was full of cybersolutions.

The RSA Conference is the largest, and probably most significant, single ongoing global cybersecurity event on the planet. It brings together people, companies and ideas from all over the world — and serves as a smorgasbord of security ideas new and old.

And yes, the expectations for such an event are very high. These are some of the top questions I use to analyze and evaluate the RSA Conference (RSAC) every year:

Where’s the WOW? Did I learn anything new (or different that changed my mind) on an important security topic? Who are the new and persevering cyberindustry thought leaders that I need to continue follow? How will emerging technology features and security tools change the world (for better or worse)? What will we (still) be talking about (from this show) five or 10 years from now?

As I have said in past years, it is amazing, overwhelming, intimidating and exhausting for attendees. With formal and informal sessions, a huge show floor full of company products and demonstrations, breakfasts, lunches and dinners, vendor parties, and numerous side events (and full competing conferences) happening at the same time, it is physically impossible to do it all.

RSAC Details for 2019

This year’s RSA Conference website is full of materials that you can use, even if you didn’t attend the event. The information is organized in easy-to-use categories such as speakers, tracks and spotlights. The reported attendance was more than 42,500, although it seemed larger than last year due to the expanded show floor.

You can also watch numerous RSA Conference video presentations here.  

The mainline media coverage of the conference appeared to be down as compared to other years that offered front-page articles from many major newspapers. However, much of that coverage in 2018 was related to a lack of women keynotes and presenters, which did not happen this year. In fact, it appeared that RSAC organizers went out of their way to have numerous all-women sessions and dozens of top women presenters in every track and in most panel sessions.

Business Wire offered these main RSA Conference talking points describing the 2019 event details:

"An expanded keynote program with 31 keynote presentations on two stages. West Stage keynotes featured sponsor keynotes, panels and esteemed guest speakers, and South Stage keynotes utilized the newly opened Moscone Center South to bring highly coveted sessions from industry experts to a broader audience. 740 speakers across 621 sessions and more than 700 companies on the expo floors. Key session and seminar presentations included: Building Security In — DevSecOps; Noopur Davis, SVP, Chief Product and Information Security Officer, Comcast Building Identity for an Open Perimeter; Tejas Dharamshi, Senior Security Software Engineer, Netflix, Inc. Cybersecurity Tips, Tools and Techniques for Your Professional Toolbag; Ronald Woerner, IT Risk and Compliance Consultant, DirectDefense How to Eliminate a Major Vulnerability in the Cybersecurity Workforce; Laura Bate, Policy Analyst, New America; Danielle Santos, Program Manager, NIST The Fine Art of Creating a Transformational Cybersecurity Strategy; Jinan Budge, Principal Analyst, Forrester Research; Andrew Rose, Chief Security Officer, Vocalink, a Mastercard Company Threat Hunting Using 16th-Century Math and Sesame Street; Vernon Habersetzer Sr., Enterprise Technical Expert, Walmart Axonius was named “RSA Conference 2019’s Most Innovative Startup” by the Innovation Sandbox’s judges’ panel comprised of technology, venture and security industry thought leaders. The Award for Excellence in the field of Mathematics was given to Tal Rabin, manager of cryptographic research, Thomas J. Watson Research Center. …”

Dan Lohrmann’s Top Presentations from RSAC 2019

From my perspective, here are a few of the presentations that grabbed my attention. This list is a diverse mix of different formats, styles and ideas. (Side Note: My criteria for a WOW is an unexpected talk that has unique, new materials. Or, a presenter who has a track record of success over many years who continues to deliver new insights and perspectives that are intriguing, helpful and useful.)

1. Tales of a Teenage Security Supergirl — This presentation by Kyla Guru was simply amazing for a 16-year-old girl still in high school. Definitely a WOW to remember. It is empowering for Gen Z, and a brief talk you should show to your teenage relatives and friends for a ton of reasons — if for nothing else to inspire them in public communications. The nonprofit BitsnBytes cybersecurity platform has a very bright future, as does this young lady.

2. A View from the Front Lines of Cybersecurity by FireEye — This session includes Sandra Joyce, Vice President and Head of Global Intelligence Operations, FireEye and Kevin Mandia, Chief Executive Officer, FireEye. I am almost always impressed with Kevin Mandia, and he brought some good and bad news — with detailed industry trends to watch.

He discussed a few nation-states cyberattacks and trends:

North Korea financially motivated group that also uses destructive malware for distraction. Iranian threat actors — going after individuals. China — military actions in cyber. Russia targeted safety systems at an ICS plant — shut down a plant.

What’s next? Brazen actions, and people will get hurt — secondary and tertiary effects are out of control.

Also, more compartmentalizing is happening with Balkanization and new rules. Kevin warned that those who fail to abide by them with have a very different Internet experience.

 

3. The Five Most Dangerous New Attack Techniques and How to Counter Them — with Alan Paller from SANS and Heather Mahalik, the Director of Forensics Engineering at ManTech. Great session, and always good to hear from Alan and Heather as well as the others on this panel.  

 

  

4. RSA Sandbox — Here was one of several excellent sessions from this Sandbox series of panels and presentations.

  5. In the Wake of an Attack: Thoughts from a Seasoned CISO with Dr. Hugh Thompson, Program Committee Chair, RSA Conference, and Bob Lord, Chief Security Officer, DNC.

Hugh also did very nice job in the closing interview with Tina Fey, which is described here in an article by Dark Reading.

 

6. And last, but certainly not least, I really like the RSAC Launch Pad, which highlights companies such as NulD in the popular Shark Tank format.

Closing Thoughts on RSA 2019

One big early buzz at this year’s RSA Conference was the announcement about Adi Shamir’s visa snub from the U.S. government.

“Adi Shamir, the S in the renowned RSA encryption system, didn't take his usual place on the Cryptographers' Panel at this year's RSA Conference in San Francisco — because he couldn't get a visa from the U.S. government. And he's not alone.

Shamir — the 2002 Turing Award co-winner and a member of the U.S., French, and Israeli Academy of Sciences and Britain's Royal Society — lives in Israel, and applied for a U.S. visa two months ago to attend the information security conference, the largest of its type in the world, which is being held this week in California. Shamir, along with Ron Rivest and Leonard Adleman, invented the widely used RSA cryptosystem, and cofounded RSA Security, which has been running the RSA Conference since 1991. …”

On a personal level, I always enjoy the National Cyber Security Alliance (NCSA) luncheon on Thursday for networking and important updates from the Department of Homeland Security (DHS). It was wonderful news to hear that Kelvin Coleman is the new NCSA executive director, and he is the perfect person for that role in my opinion. The update on DHS' new cyberagency was also excellent from Jeanette Manfra who is the assistant director of cybersecurity for the Department of Homeland Security’s Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA).     

The RSA Conference will remain in San Francisco for (at least) one more year, so we'll plan to be back for another cyberextravaganza in 2020.

          23andMe launches predisposition test for Type 2 diabetes      Cache   Translate Page      
Reactions to the news are mixed, with some experts saying the test is unlikely to make much of a difference. At SXSW in Austin this weekend, consumer genomics company 23andMe unveiled its latest test, a predisposition report on Type 2 diabetes.The test, which has not undergone FDA clearance and does not purport to diagnose a condition, is designed to help people understand when theyre at a higher-than-normal risk for Type 2 diabetes so they can alter their lifestyle. To assist with the latter piece, the company is leaning on its new relationship with Lark Health.This is a significant launch from 23andMe as its the first polygenic test the company has offered based on its own data (at least, the first since it pulled its health tests from the market in 2013). The announcement was accompanied by a detailed whitepaper.Why it mattersFor a company like 23andMe, increasing the number of tests they offer adds a lot of value, and can have a snowball effect: the more data they collect, the more tests they can develop and the more tests they offer the more data they can collect (since new tests will drive new users to the service).And tests like this, that are built from 23andMes proprietary data store, give the company a competitive advantage against consumer genomics companies without their database.Additionally, Type 2 diabetes is a huge problem, affecting nearly one in 10 Americans and costing the healthcare system more than $327 billion a year, according to the CDC and the American Diabetes Association.23andMe hopes that by letting more people know theyre at risk, they can prevent some number of cases before they happen.

Elizabeth the Stalwart

by digby



I'm not endorseing anyone at this point because it's way, way, way, way too early and I have no idea where this race will be when it comes time to cast my vote. Also, I don't like endorsing in presidential primaries because life is short and social media is a hellscape at such times. Suffice to say that I hope the voters will collectively choose a progressive who can dispatch the orange monster in the White House and I'll be looking at qualities that convince me they can do that. I suspect there is more than one ...

Having said that, I will admit that I am a big fan of Elizabeth Warren and if the California primary were held today, I would likely vote for her for president. I have been a fan for years. She is a sophisticated and nuanced political thinker and I find her progressivism to be compelling, persuasive and practical.

Anyway, I do hope that whatever happens, people will be open minded and give her a listen before they decide. Here's a good place to start:



There are at least two Elizabeth Warrens — Bankruptcy Law Liz and Michelob Ultra Betsy.

Bankruptcy Law Liz has more sweeping policy ideas than you have friends. She reads two books a week, which happens to be the number of books the median American reads in six months. She was a Harvard professor. She calls herself a “data nerd.”

Michelob Ultra Betsy is an Okie by birth. She says “dangit” and “golly” and “boo-hoo.” She puts an “h” before words that start with “w,” as in “hwhite.” She sounds like people who are probably unlikely to vote for her. She is a populist. And while Liz reads serious tomes, Betsy is currently on the fifth book in the “Victor the Assassin” series.

This past weekend, I got to interview both of these figures, who together make up Senator Elizabeth Warren, Democrat of Massachusetts and presidential hopeful. We had breakfast together in New York on Friday. Sometime during our breakfast, Senator Warren’s campaign publicly dropped her latest track, which is a plan to break up Amazon, Google, and Facebook, as part of a larger proposal to intensify antitrust scrutiny of Big Tech.

Then, on Saturday, I interviewed Warren onstage at the Texas Tribune’s daylong political chat fest at South by Southwest in Austin, a business and technology conference. It is the kind of place where it is safe to refer to yourself as an influencer. As in, that is your job. Like your actual job. Not everyone who attends South by Southwest currently works for a monopoly, but not a lot people seem opposed to their startup becoming one. Which is to say, proposing to break up the big tech companies and then flying to South by Southwest is sort of equivalent to Nietzche doing a “God is Dead” book panel at the Vatican.

I asked those in the audience who work for the tech giants she proposes to break up to stand. “Can you explain to them why you want to break up the place they work?”, I asked. A smattering of people rose.

Her answer surprised me. “Because it will be a lot more fun to work there,” she said. It was as if she was making a startup pitch to the startup-pitch people: “It’s like Google meets an ax.” She wanted to distinguish the billionaire monopolist owners and investors from the rank and file of Big Tech, whom she said would benefit from more competitive markets. It offered a clue to Warren’s philosophy — she is a reformer, not a revolutionary. And it revealed something about the culture of our age of capital, which requires even its most strident critics to seek to persuade those whose clout is being challenged that it’s good for them.

We talked about a recurring theme of her own life and her work studying other people: the way in which people mistakenly, in her view, blame themselves for problems that are systemic, structural, engineered through policy. We feel bad that we can’t keep to our diets, not realizing what Big Food is doing behind our backs. We feel bad that we can’t shake our iPhone addiction, not realizing how Big Tech has thousands of people investigating our psyches to render our willpower defenseless against its creations. If there is a motif of Warren’s life — first as a young woman making her way in the world, let go from her job teaching special-needs children after her first year because she got pregnant; then as a scholar of bankruptcy; and now as a policy maker — it is a quest to help Americans grasp that what they might interpret to be their fault is often a more complex story about systems they cannot see and powerful interests they can’t easily fight alone.

We talked about race. I asked her, coming off the well-worn controversy about her ancestry (when she took a much-criticized DNA test to prove she had a small percentage of Native American blood), what she has learned from that episode and from her life more generally about being white — in a moment in our history when whiteness is losing its place as the default setting of Americanness and as yet trying to find its new place in shifting sands. I would have liked to hear even more about her answer: “The differences that protect us are often unseen.” I think she was, in her way, pushing back against something you often hear from white people challenged about racism: saying you don’t see race is hardly proof that racism is not at work.

She embraces Marie Kondo’s tidying approach. She doesn’t embrace democratic socialism. She is a capitalist who celebrates markets that are fair and well-policed (“Markets without rules are theft,” she told me), if not a capitalist that capitalists invite to dinner. When I asked her if she agreed with the statement by Dan Riffle, a senior policy advisor to Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, Democrat of New York, that “every billionaire is a policy failure” — or with the argument by Ocasio-Cortez herself that a society that allows there to be billionaires is immoral — Warren again surprised me. She gave a long answer about how it depends on the context. If there were a society that had in place the policies she advocates for — universal childcare, accessible education, well-regulated markets — and that society produced billionaires, good for them. No “Abolish Billionaires” for Warren. She is down with billionaires, as long as they are Norwegian.

And she can be quite funny. When I asked her whether she would vote to impeach President Trump today, based on what she already knows, she deferred to the coming Mueller report. Which prompted this from me: “I feel Mueller’s like this guy who keeps taking you to a weekend away, and you think he’s going to propose every weekend, and it’s like, Is this guy ever…? He puts his hand in his pocket, and you think the ring is definitely in the pocket. And then there’s no ring.”

“That said,” Senator Warren replied after letting me process my complicated feelings about the special counsel, “You should remember he has produced 34 indictments and guilty pleas already. I don’t know about you, but I never had a boyfriend that good.”

          Texas lawmakers hear testimony on proposed child care law      Cache   Translate Page      

Testimony was at times emotional Tuesday during a House Human Services Committee hearing in Austin as lawmakers heard differing opinions on a proposed law that would require child care facilities to install cameras.

The bill was filed by state Rep. Ana Hernandez, D-Dist. 143, following the 2016 death of a 2-month-old boy at a Houston-area day care.

"I think we all agree today the safety of these children is everyone's priority," Hernandez told the committee.

House Bill 459 would not only require licensed child care facilities to install cameras in every portion of a facility where children are cared for, but would also require the facilities to keep video and audio recordings for three months. Shawna Diaz has been pushing for this type of legislation since her son, Shane, died at Bibs and Cribs day care in 2016. Her son was found unresponsive after being put down for a nap.

Shane's death was at first ruled a case of Sudden Infant Death Syndrome, or SIDS, and the facility was initially cleared of any wrongdoing. Diaz refused to accept that answer and hired Houston attorney Joe Alexander. A year after her son died, Alexander said the truth finally came out during depositions. The facility's owner and mother initially told police and state child care investigators Shane was placed to sleep on his back and was being supervised. During the depositions, the women gave conflicting answers as to who was supervising Shane at the time he stopped breathing and admitted the infant had been placed to sleep on his stomach, a violation of state rules.

Both the Department of Family and Protective Services and the Harris County Sheriff's Office reopened the investigations into Shane's death. The facility eventually closed its doors and was hit with a long list of state violations. Diaz said her long search for the truth could have been avoided had the facility's cameras been turned on and recording the day her son died. Diaz said the cameras would have captured how Shane was put to sleep and who was watching him during his nap.

"No one is here defending the kids that are being neglected and abused," Diaz said during her testimony.

Other mothers of children who died or were injured at child care facilities support the bill.

"He was lying in urine and vomit face down in the crib," Casey Jones testified was the condition she found her son while he was being cared at the same facility where Shane died.

Dikeisha Whitlock-Pryer, whose son died after being left in a hot day care van, also testified during the hearing.

"It should be mandatory that day care facilities have videos," said Whitlock-Pryer.

However, some child care facility owners expressed concerns the bill was overly intrusive in requiring cameras to be in every part of a facility, as well as the cost of having systems that can store audio and video for 90 days.

Lonnie Hutson, with Kids R' Kids, told the committee he supports cameras in child care facilities, but the language of the bill should be narrowed in exactly where cameras would be required. Hutson also suggested trimming the 90-day storage requirement to seven days to help ease the financial burden on private businesses.

"That kind of language needs to be changed in here," Hutson said.

Others argued cameras won't prevent a worker from not following the rules already in place to protect children. The executive director of the Texas Private Schools Association, Laura Colangelo, said the schools under her purview already far exceed minimum requirements set by the state.

"Installing intrusive cameras in every corner of every classroom is not going to help us continue with that mission," Colangelo said.

However, Diaz argued cameras would act as a deterrent to neglectful behavior.

"When you know you're being recorded, you're going to be doing what you're supposed to be doing," Diaz said.

Alexander also testified and used a convenience store where he bought coffee as a comparison for why this bill needed to pass.

"Twenty-seven cameras in that convenience store to protect the inventory of cigarettes, beer and candy bars. If that sort of inventory is worth protecting, certainly our children are," Alexander said.

The measure was left pending in committee and Hernandez said she is working to address any concerns child care workers may have about her bill.

          Prosecutors: College Scam Takes Bribery to Whole New Level      Cache   Translate Page      
Rich and famous parents who are accused of buying their children entrance to some of the best universities in the U.S. were part of a multilevel, years-long scam that exploited a desire expressed worldwide: to be educated at the best American institutions. William Rick Singer of Newport Beach, California, who has pleaded guilty to orchestrating the scam and is named as a cooperating witness, earned more than $25 million by connecting parents and their children with test administrators and college coaches who took their cut for endorsing bogus applicants, says the U.S. Department of Justice. "They flaunted their wealth, sparing no expense, so they could cheat the system so set their children up for success with the best education money could buy. Literally," described Joseph Bonavolonta of the FBI's Boston field office. Exclusive, moneyed and well-connected, parents on the list of those indicted in "Operation Varsity Blues" for conspiracy to commit mail and wire fraud include the owner of a California wine vineyard and the former owner of a California media company that sold for $325 million a year ago. Some own corporations and firms, and deal in private equity and real-estate development. There are several executives, entrepreneurs, investors and CEOs among the 50 who were charged. Parents charged in the scandal list addresses on New York City’s Fifth Avenue and at Rockefeller Center, California’s Beverly Hills, Greenwich, Connecticut, and Hyannis Port, Massachusetts, where the Kennedy political dynasty owns an oceanfront summer compound.  That echelon of American wealth traditionally seeks prestigious institutions of higher education for their children: Yale, Stanford and Georgetown, among other Ivy League, or older universities known for their excellence and well-heeled connections. Other schools caught in the scam are campuses in the University of California system, the University of Texas and Wake Forest University. Wealthy families have been donating large sums to colleges and universities for a millennia to get their offspring into prestigious schools – and get their family name inscribed in stone on university buildings or connected to a prestigious post, called a “chair.” And testing overseas for international students has been cancelled numerous times -- as recently as this month -- because the test answers have been widely distributed to test takers before the exam. But prosecutors say this scam took bribery to a new level.  "We're not talking about donating a building so a school is more likely to take your daughter or son," explained U.S. Attorney Andrew Lelling. “We’re talking about deception and fraud. Fake test scores, fake athletic credentials, fake photographs, bribed college officials.” Lelling said the case is one of “the widening corruption of elite college admissions. … There can be no separate admission system for the wealthy. Every year, talented students work hard ... in a system that grows more and more competitive every year." ​"For every student admitted through fraud, an honest and genuinely talented student was rejected," he said. Even high-achieving high-school students labor for four years to impress highly selective colleges that have low acceptance rates: Among the schools mentioned in the indictments, only 5 percent of applicants get into Stanford, 7 percent into Yale, 16 percent into University of California-Los Angeles, 17 percent into Georgetown, 18 percent into the University of Southern California, and 29 percent into Wake Forest University, according to the National Center for Education Statistics. In addition to high grade-point averages, students applying to schools need high scores on standardized tests like the SAT and ACT. Many families pay tutors to help students improve their test scores, which can be taken several times.  But unlike most high-school juniors and seniors who take the SAT or ACT under the watchful eye of proctors in large group locations like school cafeterias, parent and Hollywood actor Felicity Huffman paid Singer $15,000 to get her daughter time and privacy to take the test, according to prosecutors. One defendant, Mark Riddell of Palmetto, Florida, answered or corrected hers and other’s responses before submitting the results to the testing companies.  And parents – some of whom paid up to $75,000 for testing assistance -- got a bonus: They made their payments through a charitable organization Singer created named Key Worldwide Foundation. Not only is Key tax-exempt as a charity, parents were able to deduct those charitable contributions from their income taxes, prosecutors said.  Athletics are a unique path into higher echelon colleges and universities, and college coaches were a link between parents and Singer. A student who excels at lacrosse, soccer or basketball can boost an institution’s revenue through ticket sales, endorsements and brand marketing. College basketball is widely seen as a televised, brightly lit pathway for athletes to professional, well-paid careers.  The indictment snagged college sports coaches who acted as middlemen, knowing the applicants real abilities but taking big payoffs to endorse them for admission. College and university coaches are often the highest paid on college campuses, sometimes receiving tens or hundreds of thousands, and sometimes millions more, than the college presidents they serve.  Parents staged photos of their children engaged in popular sports, Lelling described, including photoshopping the face of their child onto the face of an actual athlete, and then submitting it to support of the child's application. “We believe everyone charged here today had a role in cultivating a culture of corruption and greed,” Bonavolonta said at a press conference. “Their actions were without a doubt insidious, selfish and shameful.” Olivia Giannulli, daughter of televison actor Lori Loughlin and a YouTube star who goes by the name Olivia Jade, has seen increased heat around comments she made after her acceptance at USC. "I don't know how much of school I'm gonna attend," she shared with her nearly 2 million subscribers, after explaining her extensive work schedule. “I don't really care about school, as you guys all know." Prosecutors said they did not believe the schools were directly involved or knew of the pay-for-admission scam. Yale and USC issued statements early.  “We do not believe that any member of the Yale administration or staff other than the charged coach knew about the conspiracy. The university has cooperated fully in the investigation and will continue to cooperate as the case moves forward,” wrote the university's President Peter Salovey. “The federal government has alleged that USC is a victim in a scheme perpetrated against the university by a long-time Athletics Department employee, one current coach and three former coaching staff, who were allegedly involved in a college admissions scheme and have been charged by the government on multiple charges,” wrote USC President Wanda M. Austin to the university community.  “At this time, we have no reason to believe that admissions employees or senior administrators were aware of the scheme or took part in any wrongdoing—and we believe the government concurs in that assessment.” Mark LaMet and Lynn Davis contributed to this report.

In memory of Richard A. Overton of Austin.
          Here are the high-flying financiers charged in the college-admissions cheating scandal      Cache   Translate Page      

Stanford University

  • The Department of Justice on Tuesday charged 50 people with participating in a scheme to get students into colleges by cheating on entrance exams or bribing athletic coaches.
  • The parents charged include Hollywood stars, as well as executives at prominent companies, venture-capital firms, and law offices.

The Department of Justice on Tuesday unsealed documents charging dozens of people with participating in a nationwide college-admissions scam.

Among those parents indicted by the FBI are high-flying executives, wealthy real-estate developers, and Hollywood stars. A slew of financiers was also named in the case, including former Pimco CEO Douglas Hodge, Hercules Capital CEO Manuel A. Henriquez, and William McGlashan, a TPG managing partner.

High-ranking schools such as Georgetown University, Stanford University, Yale University, the University of Texas at Austin, the University of Southern California, Wake Forest University, and the University of California, Los Angeles, also appeared in the indictment, court documents show. Federal prosecutors said the systematic scheme of bribery lasted more than eight years, from 2011 to 2019. 

There were a number of finance executives charged. Business Insider has reached out to all of them for comment and will update this story if we hear back. 

Robert Flaxman, cofounder of Crown Realty and Development

Robert Flaxman cofounded the Costa Mesa, California-headquartered real-estate-development company Crown Realty and Development in 1994. The firm has been an active local developer in California, investing in a number of notable local projects, such as the retail center Venice Crossroads and a hotel, restaurant, office complex across from Angel Stadium of Anaheim.

Crown Realty and Development has a more than 2.3 million-square-foot portfolio that includes retail, hospitality, and industrial projects that spread across California, Arizona, Virginia, Idaho, and Northern California. 

He is accused of participating in "both the college recruitment scheme and college entrance exam scheme." In the court records, he is also accused of fabricating information on his son's application to the University of San Diego.

He was charged with "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud."



Manuel A. Henriquez, founder and chairman of Hercules Capital

Manuel A. Henriquez is the cofounder, chairman, and CEO of Hercules Technology Growth Capital, a Palo Alto, California-based venture-debt provider. The company was an early investor in Facebook.

According to his LinkedIn profile, Henriquez has worked in venture capital for more than 30 years. Before Hercules, he was a partner at the private-equity fund VantagePoint Venture Partners. He was also the founder of ON Technology, a software company that was backed by investors such as Kleiner Perkins, Apple Computer, and more.

He and his wife, Elizabeth Henriquez, are accused of participating "in the college entrance exam cheating scheme, on four separate occasions, for their two daughters."

They are also accused of conspiring "to bribe Gordon Ernst, the head tennis coach at Georgetown University, to designate their older daughter as a tennis recruit in order to facilitate her admission to Georgetown," according to court documents.

The couple are charged with "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud," according to court documents.



Douglas Hodge, former CEO of Pimco

Douglas Hodge is the former CEO of the asset manager Pimco. Hodge took the reins of the notable bond manager after Bill Gross, the onetime "Bond King," exited the firm in 2014. In December 2017, Hodge announced that he would retire from the firm.

During his 28 years with Pimco, Hodge grew the assets the company managed from $15 billion to $1.69 trillion. Afterward, he joined Sway Ventures as a venture partner to help grow the firm's early-stage portfolio companies.

According to court documents unsealed on March 12, Hodge "agreed to use bribery to facilitate the admission of two of his children to USC as purported athletic recruits, and sought to enlist CW-1 to secure the admission of a third child to college through bribery as well."

He was charged with "conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud.

Pimco declined to comment on the matter.

          Charlie Puth Produseri Lagu Baru Austin Mahone      Cache   Translate Page      

Liputan6.com, Jakarta - Austin Mahone kembali ke panggung musik dengan karya terbaru berjudul "Why Don't Me". Ada cerita menarik dibalik pembuatan lagu bernuansa RnB dan funk itu.

Austin Mahone menceritakan proses pembuatan lagu terbarunya saat menyapa pewarta di kantor Warner Music Indonesia, Jakarta Pusat, Selasa (12/3/2019).

Menurutnya, lagu terbarunya berasal dari tangan dingin musisi Charlie Puth. "Lagu terbaru saya ini diproduseri dan ditulis oleh Charlie Puth. Lagu ini bercerita tentang seseorang yang harus keluar dari zona nyaman dan bersenang-senang bersama orang-orang di sekitarnya," Austin Mahone menuturkan.

Austin Mahone kemudian menjelaskan jika lagu "Why Don't Me" diracik dengan nuansa musik RnB era 1990an yang cukup kental. "Saya sudah menyelesaikan video klipnya bulan lalu. Suasananya diambil seperti suasana nostalgia tahun 1990an, RnB tahun itu," tuturnya kemudian.

          Who Is Cam From The Bachelorette? He Already Won the First Rose of the Season      Cache   Translate Page      

Tuesday night's finale of The Bachelor included some sneak peeks of The Bachelorette's upcoming season, and it looks like fans are in for a wild ride. Hannah B., the newly announced Bachelorette star, got to meet a few of the men who'll be vying for her heart. And one of them, Cam, went home with a rose before the season even started.

Cam definitely had the most original entrance planned for his meeting with Hannah. He wrote his own rap about her (even though Hannah G. was the self-professed rapper on Colton's Bachelor season), even throwing in a "Roll tide!" at the end.

ABC hasn't shared contestant profiles for all of Hannah's suitors just yet, but several outlets have shared lists of some of the new Bachelorette contestants. It looks like Cam's full name is Cameron Ayala, and he's a proud Aggie, aka a Texas A&M alumni, as he shared during The Bachelor's finale.

Cam's Instagram account is private - at least as of now. His Twitter account is public, but there aren't any tweets posted after April 2015. Still, there's some info fans can glean from his older Twitter posts. It looks like Cam is a big fan of Ryan Gosling and of Mad Men. And Cam is from Austin, TX, as he told Hannah on The Bachelor. Could she fall for a fellow Southerner?

Cam also suffers from lymphedema, according to the International Business Times. The condition causes swelling in arms or legs, and there's no cure for it, according to Mayo Clinic. But it looks like Cam hasn't let the condition stop him from living a full life, including joining The Bachelorette.

Obviously, there's still a lot more viewers have to learn about Cam and the other Bachelorette contestants when season 15 premieres on May 13. Until then, fans can keep debating whether or not Cam's rapping skills were actually good, though they obviously won Hannah over.

          The 50 happiest cities in America, ranked      Cache   Translate Page      

madison wisconsin

In a recent study released by Wallethub, researchers found the happiest people live in Texas, about 20 miles outside of Dallas.

On a list of cities ranked by three main categories — emotional & physical well-being, income & employment, and community & environment — Texas accounted for eight of the top 50. Other notable mentions include locations in Arizona, Hawaii, and many across the midwest. California swept the ranking, totaling 14 cities in the top 50. The Golden State performed similarly in last year's report, and even clinched the No. 1 spot.

To complete the report, WalletHub compared 182 of the nation's largest cities and evaluated them on the three main categories mentioned above. These categories were evaluated using weighted metrics — ranging from adequate-sleep rate to hate crime incidents per capita — and then graded on a 100-point scale. These weighted averages were then used to calculate final scores before ordering cities from least to greatest.

          Release Day Blitz: Dark Consequences by Amanda Siegrist      Cache   Translate Page      
Title: Dark Consequences
Series: A Consequences Novel
Author: Amanda Siegrist
Genre: Romantic Suspense
Release Date: March 12, 2019

Every choice has a consequence…
Detective Tate Powell is consumed by two things—the woman who managed to capture his heart with a single look and to catch the man that killed his sister. When he finds out the man he’s been seeking, the man he will kill with his bare hands, is none other than his girlfriend’s brother, he knows his entire life is over. Because nothing will stop him from seeking revenge, even if it means losing her.
Abby Forrester never knew she could fall in love so easily, but Tate slipped under her defenses without even blinking. She should’ve never confessed her brother is the man that killed his sister. But now that she has, she’ll do everything in her power to protect him from ruining his life—and from killing her brother. Even if she has to do the unthinkable. Turn against him.


“It’s not a memory I like to reminisce about, Tate. Did you ever stop to wonder why Cooper wanted to come to New York? How I would know he was coming here?”

Running a hand through his hair, he laughed. “Of course. But you chose not to tell me the whys and hows.”

“If I knew you’d do the right thing, maybe I’d be more forthcoming about information.”

His lips turned into a fierce frown. “Killing him is the right thing. He’s a monster.”

Throwing her hands in the air, she opened her mouth as if to scream, but didn’t. “I hate arguing with you. How did we just have the most amazing sex and now we’re fighting?”

Memories flashed in his mind of his hands on her soft skin, of thrusting deep inside, of holding her close. He wanted to go back to that moment in time where no problems existed, where lies couldn’t be told.

“Because you can’t see the truth. We will always argue until you face the truth. Cooper is a monster. He needs to go.”

“By your hand?”

“I don’t expect you to kill him.”

A melancholy expression fell across her face. “I think Brandan called him. He pulled his phone out when he walked away from my table. I think he lied to me about speaking to Cooper.”

“Did you mention this to the detective before I got there?”

“No. But I’m sure they’ll eventually pull his phone records and see he called someone less than twenty minutes before his death.”

“It’s like going up on a hill with you. The walk is exhausting and treacherous, but once you reach the top, the view is breathtaking.” A tiny smile emerged as he took a step closer to her. He grabbed her hand. “Can you please stop making things difficult for me? I only want to keep you safe. With him alive, you’re not safe.”

She squeezed his hand. “He would never hurt me.”

“What do you call a sitting duck?”

She flinched and tried to pull her hand from his. He wouldn't let go. “Why would you say that?”

Slipping his free hand into his pocket, he pulled out the note Cooper left him. “Because your brother left me a message. Maybe you can tell me the answer. Because the only answer I see is the one where he’s threatening you.”

“Or you.” Her eyes sparkled with a hint of rage mingled with fear.

He let the note drift to the floor, wrapped his arms around her waist, and pulled her closer. His mouth hovered above hers. “He definitely meant you. I have no doubt in my mind. Because your brother is no idiot. He knows the one and only weakness I have.”

“You’re not weak. Nothing will stop you from hurting him. If there was a way, I’d use it against you.”

“You’re wrong, Abby.” His lips touched hers gently. “You’re my weakness. He knows it.”

          Want To Play A Tiny Desk Concert? Enter The 2019 Tiny Desk Contest!      Cache   Translate Page      

 

https://youtu.be/RYcQiWgEG2Q

In 2014, we started the Tiny Desk Contest with the humble goal of discovering new music. Since then, your entries have blown us away. Your music has made us laugh, made us cry and filled us with insurmountable joy. It's been incredible to watch artists in this community grow.

So, the moment you've all been waiting for has finally arrived: The Tiny Desk Contest is back for 2019! And for the first time ever, our Contest will be open to artists 18 years and older.

Get to work on your video, because you can enter starting today.

Here's how to enter:

  1. Film a video of you or your band performing an original song at a desk. Any desk will do.
  2. Upload your video to YouTube.
  3. Submit your video via the entry form on our website.

 

That's it! We'll be accepting entries now through April 14 at 11:59 p.m. EST. If you've got questions, feel free read the official rules or check out our FAQs.

The Contest winner will come to NPR headquarters to play their very own Tiny Desk concert, and then come on tour with NPR Music with support from our sponsor, Blue Microphones.

I'm so excited about our judging panel this year. I'll be joined by some friends from public radio: Rodney Carmichael of NPR Music, Raul Campos of KCRW and Abbie Gobeli of KEXP — dedicated seekers of new music from all genres and styles — plus, some of our favorite Tiny Desk alums: Jason Isbell, Ledisi and Lucy Dacus.

Winning the Contest can really change an artist's life. Just ask Naia Izumi. After he won last year, Izumi went from busking on the street to opening on the national tour for The Lone Bellow and signing a contract with Sony Masterworks. Other winners have gone on to play world tours and festivals like Coachella and South By Southwest (See you there, Gaelynn Lea.) They've released amazing albums. (We can't wait to hear the new record from Tank and The Bangas.) One winner has even gone on to win two Grammys. (Congrats, Fantastic Negrito!)

Our winners aren't the only artists who entered the Contest who I've invited to play behind my Tiny Desk. Just last week, the Philadelphia band &More, who caught our eye with its Contest entry last year, came and performed a Tiny Desk concert. We love to feature entries in other ways, too. When we go on tour with the winner, we ask local artists who entered the Contest to join the bill and we write about entries we love on this blog. We're proud of the community you've built with us and we can't wait to see what's in store this year.

Got a song you want the world to hear? We want to hear it, too.

          Democratic Candidates Target Tech Giants, Who Are Major Party Donors      Cache   Translate Page      
Over the weekend in Austin, Texas, South by Southwest became a major presidential forum. More than half a dozen candidates showed up to the annual music, arts and technology convention. Democrats competed with each other to be the tough-on-tech candidate, a development in line with the party's move to the left but at odds with its reliance on tech donors. Hundreds of fans cheered as Sen. Elizabeth Warren hopped on stage. She had just rallied in Queens, N.Y., where Amazon pulled its plan to build a new headquarters in the face of protest. Now, at a conference full of tech workers, she came with the same message: Break up the tech giants; they're killing competition. "We want to keep that marketplace competitive, not let a giant who has an incredible information advantage and a manipulative advantage be able to snuff you out," she said at the political event sponsored by SXSW and The Texas Tribune .

          Biden, Warren and Sanders on Antitrust       Cache   Translate Page      

In the cover story of the November/December 2017 issue of the Washington Monthly, executive editor Gilad Edelman chronicled how anti-monopoly politics, including revived antitrust enforcement, had “seemed to go from fringe argument to a pillar of the Democrats’ economic plan, at least rhetorically, overnight.” (It turned out that years of earnest Washington Monthly articles on the subject played a role.) But, he cautioned, things like merely including a section on corporate concentration in the Democrats’ “Better Deal” agenda were just “baby steps.” It remained to be seen whether the issue would develop into a real campaign topic.

Two things happened this week that suggest the answer may be “yes.” Yesterday, at a rally in Council Bluffs, Iowa, Senator Bernie Sanders, who recently entered the presidential race, delivered a speech about how to improve the fortunes of rural America that heavily emphasized the need to combat agricultural monopolies. The argument sounded strikingly similar to the ones recently made by the Open Markets Institute’s Claire Kelloway, in the Washington Monthly, and Austin Frerick, in the American Conservative. 

Council Bluffs, IA – U.S. Sen. Bernie Sanders will deliver remarks in Council Bluffs today. See below for full remarks:

Thank you all very much for being here tonight and thank you for being part of a political revolution which will transform America.

Thank you for being part of a campaign which is not only going to win the Democratic nomination, which is not only going to defeat Donald Trump, the most dangerous president in modern American history, but with your help is going to transform this country and, finally, create an economy and government which works for all Americans, and not just the one percent. Today, I want to welcome you to a campaign which says, loudly and clearly, that the underlying principles of our government will not be greed, kleptocracy, hatred and lies. It will not be racism, sexism, xenophobia, homophobia and religious bigotry. All of that is going to end.
The principles of our government will be based on justice: economic justice, social justice, racial justice and environmental justice. Tonight, I want to welcome you to a campaign which tells the powerful special interests who control so much of our economic and political life that we will no longer tolerate the greed of Wall Street, corporate America and the billionaire class – greed which has resulted in this country having more income and wealth inequality than any other major country on earth.

No. We will no longer stand idly by and allow 3 people in this country to own more wealth than the bottom half of America while, at the same time, nearly 20 percent of our children live in poverty, veterans sleep out on the streets and seniors cannot afford their prescription drugs. We will no longer accept 46 percent of all new income going to the top 1 percent, while millions of Americans are forced to work 2 or 3 jobs just to survive and over half of our people live paycheck to paycheck, frightened to death about what happens to them financially if their car breaks down or their child becomes sick.

Together, we are going to create a political system which is based on the democratic principles of one person – one vote – and end a corrupt system which allows billionaires to buy elections. Yes. We are going to overturn Citizens United and move to public funding of elections.

Today, we fight for a political revolution.

And tonight, I want to offer a very special thanks to the people of the great state of Iowa. In 2016, this is where the political revolution began. Thank you Iowa.

When I first came here to campaign in 2015 not a whole lot of people knew who I was, nobody took our campaign seriously, and we were at 3 percent in the polls. Further, the ideas that we were talking about then were considered by establishment politicians and mainstream media to be “radical” and “extreme” – ideas, they said, that nobody in America would support.

Raising the minimum wage to a living wage. Too radical. Guaranteeing health care to all as a right, not a privilege. Too radical. Creating up to 15 million jobs by rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure with a one trillion dollar investment. Too radical. Aggressively combatting climate change. Too radical. Reforming our broken criminal justice and immigration systems. Too radical. Not taking money from super PACs and the rich. Too radical. Ending the power of super delegates at the Democratic Convention. Too radical.
Well, a funny thing happened in Iowa over that year. On Caucus Night we didn’t win 3% of the vote, we won 50% of the vote and half of the pledged delegates.

And that great start in Iowa led us to win victories in 22 states around the country, 13 million votes, over 1700 delegates at the convention and more votes from young people – black, white, Latino, Asian American and Native American – than Trump and Clinton combined.

And, by the way. Those ideas that we talked about 4 years years ago that seemed so very radical at that time. Well, today, virtually all of those ideas are supported by a majority of the American people and have overwhelming support from Democrats and independents – and they’re ideas that Democratic candidates for president to school board are now supporting.

So Iowa, you helped begin the political revolution in 2016 and, with your help on this campaign, we are going to complete what we started here. We’re going to turn our vision and our progressive agenda into reality.

Today, as we launch our campaign here in Iowa, we say to the private health insurance companies, whether you like it or not, the United States will join every other major country on earth and guarantee healthcare to all people as a right. All Americans are entitled to go to the doctor when they’re sick and not go bankrupt after staying in the hospital. We will no longer accept the absurdity of paying almost twice as much per capita on health care, while we have a lower life expectancy and worse health care outcomes than many other countries.

The goal of health care must be to provide quality care to all in a cost effective way, not tens of billions in profits for the insurance companies and outrageous compensation packages for CEOs. In 2017, the top 65 healthcare CEO’s made $1.7 billion in compensation including: $83.2 million to David Wichmann, the CEO of UnitedHealth Group and 58.7 million to Mark Bertolini, the CEO of Aetna. We need a health care system that invests in disease prevention, doctors, nurses, dentists and rural clinics. We don’t a system which makes insurance companies and their CEOs super rich.

Yes. We will pass a Medicare for all single-payer program. Health care is a right. And, by the way, our legislation improves health care for seniors by providing coverage for dental care, hearing aids and eye glasses.

Today, we say to the pharmaceutical industry, that you will no longer charge the American people the highest prices in the world for prescription drugs, the result being that one out of five Americans cannot afford the prescriptions their doctors prescribe. Seniors in this country should not have to cut their pills in half. The outrageous greed of the pharmaceutical industry is going to end. We are going to lower prescription drug prices in this country.

Today, we say to Walmart, the fast food industry and other low wage employers: Stop paying your employees starvation wages.. Yes. We are going to raise the federal minimum wage to a living wage – $15 an hour. Nobody who works 40 hours a week in this country should live in poverty. And yes. We’re going to make it easier for people to join unions, not harder.

Four years ago, when we talked about the idea of a $15 an hour minimum wage, it seemed like an impossible dream. Well, since then, I’m happy to tell you that 5 states have passed $15 an hour legislation and, just yesterday, the U.S. House Committee on Labor and Education reported out a bill that will raise the federal minimum wage from $7.25 an hour to $15 an hour. And, I believe, that bill will pass the full House within the month.

And by the way. Today we say to corporate America that artificial intelligence and robotics are not going to be used just to throw workers out on the street. This exploding technology must serve human needs, not just corporate profits.

Today we say to the American people that we will rebuild our crumbling infrastructure: our roads, our bridges, our rail system and subways, our airports, our water systems and wastewater plants – and when we do that we create up to 13 million good paying jobs. And let’s be clear. When I talk about infrastructure and clean water we’re talking about strengthening clean water laws so that corporate polluters stop poisoning the drinking water that communities in Iowa and across the country rely on.
Today we say to the parents in this country that you and your kids deserve quality, affordable childcare. The children are our future, and they deserve the best possible head start in life with a high quality, universal pre-K program.

Today, we say to our young people that we want you to get the best education that you can, regardless of the income of your family. Good jobs require a good education. That is why we are going to make public colleges and universities tuition free, and substantially lower the outrageous level of student debt that currently exists. America once had the best educated workforce in the world, and we are going to make that happen again.

Today, we say to our senior citizens, that we understand that you cannot live in dignity when you are trying to survive on $13,000 or $14,000 a year in Social Security benefits. My Republican colleagues want to cut Social Security but we have some bad news for them. We’re not going to cut Social Security benefits. We’re going to expand them.

Today, we say to Donald Trump and the fossil fuel industry that climate change is not a hoax but is an existential threat to our country and the entire planet – and we intend to transform our energy system away from fossil fuel and into energy efficiency and sustainable energy and, in the process, create millions of good paying jobs. All of us have a moral responsibility to make certain that the planet we leave to our children and grandchildren is healthy and habitable.

Today, we say to the prison-industrial-complex that we are going to bring about real criminal justice reform. We are going to end the international embarrassment of having more people in jail than any other country on earth. Instead of spending $80 billion a year on jails and incarceration, we are going to invest in jobs and education for our young people. No more private prisons and detention centers. No more profiteering from locking people up. No more “war on drugs.” No more keeping people in jail because they’re too poor to afford cash bail.

And by the way, when we talk about criminal justice reform, we’re going to change a system in which tens of thousands of Americans every year get criminal records for possessing marijuana, but not one major Wall Street executive went to jail for destroying our economy in 2008 as a result of their greed, recklessness and illegal behavior. No. They didn’t go to jail. They got a trillion-dollar bailout.

Today, we say to the American people that instead of demonizing the undocumented immigrants in this country, we’re going to pass comprehensive immigration reform and provide a path toward citizenship. We’re going to provide legal status to the 1.8 million young people eligible for the DACA program, and develop a humane border policy for those who seek asylum. No more snatching babies from the arms of their mothers.
Today, we say to the top 1 percent and the large profitable corporations in this country – people who have never had it so good — that under a Bernie Sanders administration we’re going to end the massive tax breaks and loopholes that you currently enjoy.

We will no longer accept the absurd situation where large corporations like Amazon, Netflix and General Motors pay nothing in federal income taxes after raking in billions in profits. We will no longer tolerate the situation in which the wealthy and large corporations stash billions in tax havens throughout the world.
Yes, the wealthy and multi-national corporations in this country will start paying their fair share of taxes. We are going to end austerity for working families, and provide some austerity for large, multi-national corporations.

Today, we say to the military-industrial-complex that we will not continue to spend $700 billion a year on the military – more than the next ten nations combined. We’re going to invest in affordable housing, we’re going to invest in public education, we’re going to invest in rebuilding our crumbling infrastructure – not more nuclear weapons and never-ending wars.

Brothers and sisters: We’re going to win this election not because we have a super PAC funded by billionaires. We’re going to win this election because we will put together the strongest grassroots coalition in the history of American politics.

Donald Trump wants to divide us up by the color of our skin, our country of origin, our gender, our religion and our sexual orientation. We are going to do exactly the opposite. We are going to bring our people together – black, white, Latino, Native American, Asian American, gay and straight, young and old, men and women, native born and immigrant.

We are going to bring our people together for an unprecedented grassroots effort, which, I am happy to tell you, already has over one million people signed up as volunteers.

Brothers and sisters: As someone who represents Vermont, one of the most rural states in the country, let me be very honest with you in saying that the U.S. Congress has, for too long, ignored the many crises facing rural America.

In Iowa, in Vermont and all over this country, we have seen more and more young people leave the small towns they grew up in and love, not because they don’t want to stay, but because there are fewer and fewer jobs that pay a living wage.

We have seen schools, churches and community centers shut down, and once vibrant Main Streets become boarded up and deserted.

In Vermont, Iowa and all across rural America, we have seen family farmers go out of business as the prices they receive for their products decline rapidly and large agri-business corporations and factory farming take over agriculture.

We have seen rural hospitals and nursing homes shut down, and not enough doctors to provide the quality health care that rural American deserves.

Tragically, instead of seeing good jobs, education and health care coming into our rural communities, we are far too often seeing despair and depression – and a terrible increase in suicide and opioid addiction.
Brothers and sisters. We need policies for rural America that represent the needs of working people and farmers, not agri-business and multi-national corporations.

Among many other things that need to be done is for the federal government to enforce anti-trust laws, and I will appoint an Attorney General who will do just that.

It is not acceptable to me that the top four packing companies control more than 80 percent of the beef market, 63 percent of the pork market, and 53 percent of the chicken market.

And these numbers understate the situation.

In many communities, there really is only one buyer, which means food producers are at their mercy. They must use that corporation’s feed and livestock, they must accept that corporation’s costs, and they must accept that corporation’s lower and lower payment rates. In many cases, the farmer doesn’t even own the livestock or supplies — they are effectively contract employees who are forced to lease everything, and then get paid an inadequate wage for their very hard work.

With the federal government not enforcing antitrust laws, we have seen mergers like the Bayer-Monsanto approved, giving the two largest conglomerates 78 percent of the corn seed market.

Further, instead of protecting family owned farms, federal support for agriculture is skewed toward huge farms. The top 10 percent of farms currently receive 77 percent of all subsidies.

The time is long overdue for the U.S. government to stand with rural America, and that is exactly what I do.
———-
Brothers and sisters. Over the last two years, and before, you and I and millions of Americans have stood up and fought for justice in every part of our society. And we’ve had some successes.

Together, as billionaires and large corporations have attacked unions, destroyed pensions, deregulated the banks, and slashed wages, we have succeeded in raising the minimum wage to $15 in states and cities across the country. And forced large corporations like Amazon and Disney to do the same. And we have supported teachers who successfully stood up for their kids in strike after strike after strike.

Together, as the forces of militarism have kept us engaged in unending wars, we have stood arm-in-arm to fight back. For the first time in 45 years, we have utilized the War Powers Act to move us forward in ending the horrific Saudi-led war in Yemen.

Together, as so many of our young people have received criminal records for nonviolent offenses, we have fought to end the war on drugs, and have seen state after state decriminalize marijuana, and have seen communities expunge the criminal records of those arrested on these charges.

Let’s be honest: while we have won some victories, our struggles have not always been successful. But I am here to tell you, that because of all the work we have done, we are now on the brink of winning not just an election, but transforming our country.

And let me tell you what that means.

When We are in the White House, we will enact a federal jobs guarantee, to ensure that everyone is guaranteed a stable job. There is more than enough work to be done in this country. Let’s do it.

When We are in the White House we will not only end the decline of rural America, but attack the problem of urban gentrification and build the affordable housing we desperately need all across this country.
When We are in the White House, we will move aggressively to end the epidemic of gun violence in this country and pass the common sense gun safety legislation that the overwhelming majority of Americans want. People who should not have guns, will not have guns.

When We are in the White House, we are going to address not only the disparities of wealth and income that exist overall in our nation, but we will address the racial disparities of wealth and income. We are going to root out institutional racism wherever it exists. Not only will we end voter suppression, we are going to make it easier for people to vote – not harder.

When We are in the White House, we are going to protect a woman’s right to control her own body. That is her decision, not the government’s.

Make no mistake about it, this struggle is not just about defeating Donald Trump. This struggle is about taking on the incredibly powerful institutions that control the economic and political life of this country. And I’m talking about Wall Street, the insurance companies, the drug companies, the military-industrial complex, agri-business, the prison-industrial complex, the fossil fuel industry and a corrupt campaign finance system that enables billionaires to buy elections.

These powerful special interests are going to spend a lot of money to try to defeat us. But we have something they don’t have: the power of the people.

Brothers and sisters: We have an enormous amount of work in front of us. But this what I believe. If we stand together, if we don’t allow Trump and his friends to divide us up; If we stand together as black and white, Latino, Asian American and Native American. If we stand together as gay and straight, men and women, native born and immigrant. If we stand together as rural and urban – north, south, east and west.
If we understand that there really is no such thing as blue state or red state, but states throughout the country where working people are struggling to survive.

If we stand together, this country has an extraordinary future. Let’s make it happen.

 

The other big news came this morning, when fellow candidate Senator Elizabeth Warren made her own antitrust news by unveiling “a regulatory plan aimed at breaking up some of America’s largest tech companies, including Amazon, Google, Apple, and Facebook.” It’s a plan that sounds a bit like former Mark Zuckerberg mentor Roger McNamee’s groundbreaking 2018 Washington Monthly article, which sounded the alarm on the myriad threats posed by the platform monopolies.

Over the past couple of days, we’ve published a couple of articles that could be viewed as favorable to former vice-president Joe Biden, but now it’s time to issue him a warning. The Democratic Party is already on our antitrust bus, and he needs to get on board too, because his record as a senator on these issues is woeful.

People often mark the decline of antitrust enforcement as beginning with the election of Ronald Reagan, but that’s not accurate. The history is more complex, and anti-regulatory reform was a hot topic among a lot of Democrats in the 1970s, including many progressives like Ralph Nader. In a recent Huffington Post piece, Zach Carter takes us back to the history books.

Biden first came to the nation’s capital in 1973 as the junior senator from Delaware, one of the few bright spots for Democrats in a disastrous 1972 election. Like most new members of Congress, he exercised little influence in his early years. At 30, he was barely eligible for Senate service, even younger than Ted Kennedy had been when he took over his brother’s Senate seat in 1962. An inexperienced Biden looked up to Kennedy, revering him almost as an older sibling.

But as Kennedy ascended the Democratic Party ranks, the two men clashed over the party’s economic agenda.

“When the Senator from Massachusetts moved up to the chairmanship of the judiciary committee this year, the hearts of antitrust activists beat faster,” The New York Times noted in 1979. Kennedy had his sights on a sweeping piece of legislation that would block corporate mergers based on the total size of the resulting company ― even if the company was a conglomerate of unrelated businesses, and the merger did not increase a firm’s share of business in a particular market.

But Kennedy almost immediately ran into problems with Biden. When Coca-Cola urged Congress to exempt the soft drink industry from these antitrust regulations, Biden joined Republicans to pass such a bill over the objections of Kennedy and Department of Justice antitrust expert Ky Ewing, who concluded that the bill was “special interest legislation” with “no evidence” to support it.

Antitrust law was an early salvo in what became a quarter-century struggle to shift the Democratic Party’s base of support away from organized labor toward large corporations. The Biden-Kennedy split carried symbolic connotations beyond the policy implications of their individual votes. Where Kennedy wanted to use the Judiciary Committee to continue the old New Deal-era attack on corporate power, Biden became an advocate for corporate interests that had previously been associated with the Republican Party.

As Biden fought Kennedy on the Coca-Cola bill, he was also trying to thwart a Kennedy effort that would have empowered consumers to sue over a broader swath of antitrust violations. In 1977, the Supreme Court issued a controversial ruling that only those who directly purchased products could sue companies for antitrust violations. That meant that manufacturers who sold their goods through wholesalers could only be sued by the wholesalers, not consumers.

Kennedy prepared a bill that would have reversed the court’s decision, but Biden, in the words of The New York Times, “vexed” him by siding with Republicans. Biden was going out on a limb by bucking leadership. Only two of the committee’s 10 Democrats opposed Kennedy on the bill, and the other was Howell Heflin, a conservative Democrat from Alabama. The bill narrowly made it out of committee after Kennedy made some desperate last-minute concessions to win over Republican Sen. Charles Mathias (R-Md.), but the bill never got a floor vote. Kennedy’s broader antitrust ambitions died with it.

Biden wasn’t a lone wolf. President Jimmy Carter and many of the younger Democrats who filed into Washington after Watergate were eager to break with the liberal orthodoxy that had dominated their party’s thinking since the era of Franklin Delano Roosevelt. Even Kennedy had successfully pressed Carter to deregulate the airline industry in 1978, beating Ronald Reagan to the era of deregulation by nearly three years.

“A lot of us sit around thinking up ways to vote conservative just so we don’t come out with a liberal rating,” Biden told Washingtonian in 1974. “When it comes to civil rights and civil liberties, I’m a liberal but that’s it. I’m really quite conservative on most other issues.”

If Biden wanted low marks from liberal groups, he got them. By 1978, Americans for Democratic Action, the preeminent liberal watchdog group of the time, gave Biden a score of just 50, lower than its ratings for some Republicans. Kennedy typically scored in the 90s.

 

The latter day villains in the antitrust battle are already revealing themselves in reaction to Senator Warren’s direct challenge to the power of platform monopolies:

Senator Elizabeth Warren proposed in a Medium post on Friday to dismantle so-called Big Tech — Facebook, Google, and Amazon — but antitrust experts found serious flaws in her proposal.

The presidential hopeful is using a “sledgehammer,” that is, breaking companies up, to address problems like data privacy that could be solved in other ways, noted Herbert Hovenkamp, a leading authority on antitrust law.

Because of economies of scale, Hovenkamp noted, bigger companies can offer cheaper products, and forcing them to spin off businesses could hurt consumers.

“Customers are not complaining about Amazon — it’s got some of the highest consumer evaluations in retailing. The story for smaller businesses is a little more mixed. But on balance, a lot of them like dealing with Amazon,” noted Hovenkamp, a professor at the University of Pennsylvania law school.

The tech companies have more money than a Saudi prince, and they have no shortage of “leading authorities on antitrust law” to provide quotes for Yahoo! Finance articles panning the proposals of the Democratic presidential contenders. This is going to be a major battle throughout the 2020 campaign and into the next decade.

Joe Biden was on the wrong side of this battle when it began in a very significant and major way. He’s going to need a “come to Jesus moment” on corporate consolidation and antitrust regulation if he wants to atone for his past and provide leadership for the future.

Silicon Valley startup and nonprofit New Story and Austin-based construction technology company Icon are taking on new-home construction and affordability by way of 3D printing.

Icon's Vulcan II 3D printer can print a small home's frame in less than 24 hours, and later this year, it will print a neighborhood of more than 50 homes in a semi-rural Latin American community for families who earn less than $200 a month. According to Fast Company's reporting, Vulcan II builds walls and floors with layers of concrete in a day, with conventional roof, windows, and utilities to be completed the next day. 

In Haiti, where progress to rebuild after the 2010 earthquake was painfully slow, the nonprofit developed a new process to build more efficiently. But it realized that the pace of traditional construction would always hamper its ability to address the global need for better housing. After analyzing various options to speed up construction and decrease costs–including prefab homes–the team realized that 3D printing could be a viable solution. In late 2017, they began working with Icon, funding the R&D work necessary to develop the machine.

          Mindaugas Šerna. Kas atrems Partizanų vardą niekinančius moderniuosius bolševikus?      Cache   Translate Page      
Vis girdime kai kurias personas kalbant apie Partizanus, neva šie buvo nusikaltėliai, nes, matai, jie nužudė žmonių, ir todėl visaip bando juodinti jų vardą, ignoruodami aplinkybes. Verta apmąstyti –arba jie nesupranta, ką kalba ir apskritai nesuvokia to meto ir ką reiškė būti okupuotai Tautai, kai ji tiesiogine prasme naikinama savoje žemėje, ir nesupranta, ką reiškė priešintis okupacijai, pasirenkant Partizano kelią – kovotojo už laisvę kelią, arba tai yra sąmoningas veikimas su akivaizdžiais tikslais –paminti mūsų tautos dvasią. 

Tuo metu, kai dauguma lietuvių baimingai prisitaikė prie okupacijos, o kiti uoliai tapo tos okupacijos, komunistinio režimo, bendrakeleiviais ir karjeristais/išdavikais, tai būtent Partizanai buvo tie, kurie ėjo prieš diktuojamą srovę, būtent jie paliko savo šeimas ir išėjo į miškus.

Į miškus išėjo įvairaus amžiaus, profesijų žmonės, moterys ir vyrai, kurie niekaip negalėjo prisitaikyti prie neteisybės ir būti tais, kurie išduoda save ir savo tėvynę. Jie rinkosi mirtį savo noru, nes daugeliu atvejų jų tik tai ir telaukė. Bet tai nebuvo mirties troškimas, tai buvo laisvės troškimas ir tiesioginė auka mūsų visų Tėvynei ir to vaisius mes šiandien visi valgom kaip niekur nieko, net nesusimąstydami, kokia to kaina.

Ta kova buvo pragariška ta prasme, kad jėgos buvo nelygios – raudonieji turėjo praktiškai neribotus karinius išteklius – ginklus, specialias pajėgas, kurios ženkliai viršijo mūsų tautiečių, brolių skaičių ir jų ginklus. Priešas buvo negailestingas ir neįtikėtinai žiaurus bei klastingas. 

Negana to, bolševikams tarnavo krūva „savų“ lietuvių, išpažinusių raudoną tiesą ir skųsdavusių Partizanus. Būtent jų padaryta žala, naikinant tiek Partizanus, tiek tuos, kurie jiems talkino globodami, maitindami, būdami ryšininkais, buvo kone didžiausia.

Tai buvo žiaurus karas – raudonasis režimas pagautus kovotojus žiauriai kankindavo, o nužudytus išniekindavo miestų ir miestelių aikštėse, išmėtydavo lavonus gabalais pakelėse, o tautiečiams juos surinkus ir palaidojus, dar ir išniekindavo jų kapus. 

Partizanai tokiais dalykais neužsiimdavo; jie kaip tik surengdavo garbingus karo lauko teismus, vesdavo sąrašus, nekankindavo karių ir neniekindavo lavonų, juos palaidodavo.

Nėra paslaptis, kad bolševikai buvo įsigudrinę daryti nusikaltimus Partizanų vardu. Tereikėdavo apsirengti jų apranga. Taip sklisdavo melaginga žinia, kad Partizanai – banditai. Ne vieną pavyko suklaidinti, tačiau daugelis aiškiai atpažindavo savo didvyrius – jie buvo tvarkingi, mandagūs ir visada pasitempę.

Mūsų kovotojai paliko krūvas rašytinių šaltinių, dokumentų, dienoraščių, dainų, eilėraščių, dailės darbų, maldų – jose atsispindi aukšta mūsų laisvės kovotojų kultūra, mąstymas, meilė Tėvynei. Išlikusios ir dainos skirtos priešui, kuriose nesijaučia neapykantos jiems, veikiau užuojauta. 

Ar skaitėt Partizano priesaiką? Štai ji: 

Aš ________ prisiekiu Visagalinčio Dievo akivaizdoje vardan kritusių brolių už Lietuvos Laisvę ir Nepriklausomybę uoliai dirbti Nepriklausomos Lietuvos atstatymo darbą, nesigailėdamas nei jėgų, nei gyvybes, griežtai pildyti vadovybes įsakymus, didžiausioje paslaptyje laikyti veikimą, nesidėti su priešu ir viską pranešinėti savo viršininkams. Man yra žinoma, kad už šios priesaikos sulaužymą būsiu baustas mirties bausme.

Tai, ką pasižadu, tegu Dievas užlaikyti man padeda.

O čia viena jų dainų iš knygos „Sušaudytos dainos“: 

Ūžia, trankos griaustiniai po šalį, 
Vėtros siaučia visu smarkumu.
Neužmiršk, kas esi, mielas broli, 
Neužmiršk, kas lietuviui brangu!

Tautą mūs pavergė azijatai, 
Išteriojo šventus mūs jausmus,
Išmindžiojo rūtelių darželį 
Ir išdegino mūsų namus.

Išėjau aš už tėviškės žemę,
Išėjau už gimtuosius namus,
Išėjau už rūtelių darželį
Ir už tai, kas lietuviui brangu.

Žudyt tautą laukiniams padėjo 
Lietuvos išgamos — slibinai,
Neužmirš tauta savo gynėjų,
Neužmirš Lietuva amžinai.

— Neužmiršk, kraugery, savo tikslo, 
Neužmiršk, kuriuo keliu eini!
Naikini, kas pastoja tau kelią,
Savo artimą nuolat skriaudi.

Neužmirš tauta savo gynėjų, 
Neužmirš tų, kas guli kapuos,
Nes jie žino, už ką kraują liejo,
Žuvo jie, bet gyvi tarpe mūs.

Nors dabar jų kapų daug užarta, 
Juos maskuoja tironas žiaurus,
Bet pagerbs tuos kapus kartų kartos. 
Sesės pins vis naujus vainikus.

Daug našlaičių liko be tėvelių,
Jie nežino nei jųjų kapų,
Daug mergaičių liko be bernelių,
Nebėra joms linksmų vakarų.

Nebemielas prabėgęs gegužis, 
Nelinksma nė šaltoji žiema.
Jos bernelis kapuose jau guli,
O tėvynė dar vis nelaisva.

Cit, neverki, nustoki raudojus,
Greit ir mūsų tėvynė žydės.
Tu, bernelį kitą prisiviliojus,
Man ant kapo sodink nors gėles.

Man bus gera gulėti kapuose,
Kai ant kapo gėlelės žydės 
Ir mergaitė, kurią aš mylėjau, 
Ašarėlėm kasdien jas palies.

Nepaisant to, vis atsiranda „lietuvių“, kurie drįsta mūsų didvyrius niekinti savo knygose, filmuose ar komentaruose. Jie greičiausiai įsivaizduoja, kad kovotojai turėjo gintis su pūkuotomis pagalvėmis – kad tik kokio bolševiko ar išdaviko neužgautų? Tuo tarpu, kai negailestingai žudoma tavoji Tauta, broliai ir sesės, pagal juos, matai, Partizanai turėjo neduoti atkirčio ir neužtikrinti teisingumo okupantų bei išdavikų nusikaltimų akivaizdoje? 

Tas, kuris tokius dalykus kalba - arba tikras neišmanėlis, arba sąmoningas bolševikas, persikėlęs į dabartį ir atliekantis Partizanų atminimo niekinimo misiją.

Štai – 2018 metais leisti Mariaus Ivaškevičius „Žali“. Ši knyga pilna tokio tipo išsireiškimų:

„Juos paprasčiausiai užvaldė įkyri idėja turėti savo valstybę. Turėjo ją dvidešimt metų, tarp dviejų pasaulinių karų, buvo sutikę kantriai perlaukti Antrąjį ir didžiai nustebo, kad šiam pasibaigus jiems nedavė jų valstybės.“ (5 psl.).

Sunku suprasti – kaip mūsų valstybėje įmanomi tokie dalykai, kai iš mūsų tautos šaipomasi kone atvirai. Kodėl leidžiama tyčiotis iš Lietuvos didvyrių? 

Savaime kyla įtarimas, kad mūsų „valdžioje“ vis dar apstu bolševikų, komunistų ir išdavikų, kurie uždega tam žalias šviesas.

O jei yra tokių, vadinasi turi būti ir Partizanai. O, kas kitas, jei ne Partizanas, duos atkirtį XXI amžiaus bolševikams?
