La temporada 2018-19 del WEC vuelve a la vida con la celebración de las 1.000 Millas de Sebring, sexta ronda del campeonato y primera de 2019. Tras la victoria del Toyota #7 de José María 'Pechito' López, Mike Conway y Kamui Kobayashi en Shanghái, la clasificación general llega realmente apretada a un circuito distinto al resto de los que componen el calendario y en el que se disputará la segunda ronda más larga del certamen. Sébastien Buemi, Fernando Alonso y Kazuki Nakajima, pilotos del Toyota #8, encaran esta prueba como líderes.

Alonso buscará su quinto podio en el WEC y continuar así al frente del campeonato tras las victorias logradas en Spa-Francorchamps y Le Mans junto a sus compañeros. En este aspecto, Toyota es la favorita para lograr el triunfo y un nuevo doblete en Sebring, más cuando los nuevos ajustes de la 'Equivalence of Technology' indican que los LMP1 no híbridos tendrán menos potencia disponible en el circuito situado en Florida.

La carrera se podrá ver en varios formatos, tanto por televisión, como por Internet. En el primer caso, sin noticias del canal temático Discovery Max (DMAX) desde las primeras rondas del campeonato, el canal deportivo de pago Eurosport será el encargado de emitir las 1.000 Millas de Sebring al completo, si bien también la carrera se puede ver en Motors TV, canal que sin embargo no está disponible en todos los operadores de pago.

También existen varias opciones a través de internet. La primera es Eurosport Player, que ofrecerá la retransmisión de la clasificación de las categorías GTE y LMP, así como la prueba íntegra. El coste mensual del acceso a dicha plataforma es de 6,99€, mientras que la oferta anual asciende hasta los 39,99€, si bien hasta el 17 de marzo hay una oferta con el 50% de descuento.

También existe la opción de contratar el Pack Super Season del WEC con un coste de 16,99€ a cambio de lo que resta de temporada (3 pruebas) y que incluye 'Live Timing', cámaras en directo, repeticiones y ediciones de los mejores momentos entre otras cosas. Paralelamente, existe la opción de contratar únicamente las 1.000 Millas de Sebring con los mismos servicios por sólo 5,49€.

Adicionalmente, desde Motor.es ofreceremos toda la información relacionada con cada sesión del evento, así como las declaraciones de los pilotos y lo más relevante de lo ocurrido durante el fin de semana en el circuito internacional de Shanghái.

          Asbestos has been found in Claire's eye shadow, highlighting a disturbing 'black hole' in beauty-product safety      Cache   Translate Page      

dangers of putting on makeup

  • The US Food and Drug Administration barely regulates the cosmetics industry: just 11 ingredients are forbidden in cosmetic products in the US. In Europe, more than 1,300 compounds are barred. 
  • The retail chain Claire's came under fire last week after asbestos, a known cancer causer, was found in eye shadow and foundation sold there. 
  • But experts say the Claire's discovery is part a larger issue: the US beauty industry is not subject to many rules, and some of the ingredients makeup-makers use could make people sick. 

Dr. Shruthi Mahalingaiah used to love shopping at Sephora. She bought so much makeup, she said, that she even got "little random gifts" with her purchases.

"I had drawers full of makeup, all sorts of makeup," Mahalingaiah told Business Insider.

But today, she no longer sets foot in the store. Ever since she started studying the health effects that chemicals in cosmetics can have on people, Mahalingaiah — a gynecologist at Boston Medical Center — has paired her former beauty routine way down. 

"Cosmetic molecules used in the shine or luminescence are often derivatives of PFAS and PFOAs," Mahalingaiah said. 

These chemicals are endocrine disruptors, which mans they can subtly change how our bodies work by shifting the way our hormones operate. Such hormone disruptors have been linked to metabolism issues, low sperm counts in men, and early menopause in women. They can also do long-term damage to a developing fetus, subtly reducing a baby's brain power and upping the odds of a premature birth.

PFAS chemicals are not the only problematic ingredients in makeup: Asbestos, a known cancer-causer, was found in Claire's eye shadows and face powder last week.

"It wasn't surprising to me, because there's no regulation," Mahalingaiah said. 

The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) is warning consumers not to use the three Claire's products that tested positive for asbestos, but the agency has said it "does not have authority to mandate a recall."

On Tuesday, however, outgoing FDA commissioner Scott Gottlieb announced that Claire's is complying with the FDA's voluntary recall request.

claire's voluntary recall

But Leo Trasande, a public-health expert from NYU's Langone Health network, thinks the FDA could do a lot more to communicate the health risks of cosmetics to the public and test for dangerous compounds in makeup products.

"This is quite late in the game for FDA to rush out and insist that this is a problem," Trasande, who recently wrote a book on endocrine-disrupting chemicals, told Business Insider.  "They've known that this is a problem for some time. There is no level of asbestos that is safe." 

The US hasn't enacted new cosmetics regulation in over 80 years

The US law that regulates cosmetics — the Federal Food, Drug, and Cosmetic Act — hasn't changed since it was enacted in 1938. While Europe has banned over 1,300 chemicals from the products for sale there, the US forbids just 11. Congress wrote drafts of new cosmetic rules in 2011 and 2018, but neither set was enacted.

Today, lawmakers on Capitol Hill are once again discussing the potential health risks from products we're putting on our lips, eyes, and bodies. 

"Cosmetics have largely fallen into a regulatory black hole," Scott Faber, the senior vice president of government affairs at the Environmental Working Group, said in sworn testimony before the House Subcommittee on Economic and Consumer Policy on Tuesday. "Cosmetics manufacturers do not have to register with FDA, do not have to report ingredients, do not have to report adverse events."

This is different from how the FDA treats drugs, medical devices, and food. 

beauty products dangerous chemicals

The lack of regulation essentially means that manufacturers of makeup, shampoo, lotion, and other personal-care products in the US can put almost anything they want into those items, including compounds known to raise cancer risk, like coal tar, formaldehyde, and lead

To make matters murkier, producers are permitted to label their products with ingredients like "fragrance" or "parfum" instead of disclosing the specific chemicals that make up those elements of a product, since those formulations are considered trade secrets. So fragranced beauty products could easily contain a toxic compound without consumers ever knowing. 

How much toxin is too much?

chemicals in makeup

Because cosmetics are designed to make people attractive to others, they often mimic one of nature's best-known phenomena: the glow women get when pregnant.

"Thick eyelashes, thick eyebrows, flushed cheeks, big lips, all of this happens under the effects of estrogen," Mahalingaiah said, adding, "it might be the effect a person putting on the makeup might want, but through a pathway that's maybe not the healthiest." 

Scientists know that exposure to asbestos raises a person's cancer risk, but the effects of the hormone-disrupting chemicals that can be found in makeup aren't as clear. Researchers are still trying to figure out, for example, how compounds in anti-aging products bind to the estrogen receptors in our bodies. But there are signs that women who use more cosmetics may see health consequences like early menopause, more hot flashes, painful cases of endometriosis, and long-term damage to their DNA, which can lead to cancer

"Why do we always need to look fertile and pregnant?" Mahalingaiah asked. 

Beyonce Pregnant

Research on endocrine disruptors also suggests that the chemicals could subtly slow down people's metabolisms and contribute to chronic health issues like obesity and infertility, even in small doses. This is true for people of all ages and sexes, including unborn babies.

Take phthalates, for example: the ingredients that keep products like shampoo fresh.

"Phthalates disrupt the function of the male sex hormone," Mahalingaiah said.

Studies show that men exposed to high concentrations of those chemicals in the womb can have lower testicular volume, less semen, and lower semen quality than other men. 

The best solution may be to simply use fewer products

Mahalingaiah said she recently performed an at-home urine test on herself, and found elevated concentrations of parabens (one of the most common estrogen-influencing ingredients in beauty products) in her body. She also found the sunscreen ingredient benzophenone-3 (BP-3), which can mess with the way hormones typically function.  

To the dismay of her three young daughters, Mahalingaiah said she threw away her 100-shade eyeshadow palettes, since PFAS chemicals are often used to make those cosmetics shimmer.

Mahalingaiah now recommends that any step in a person's beauty routine that isn't obviously beneficial to their health (like putting on sunscreen) should probably be re-examined. 

"My piece of advice would be thinking about why [people] think they need a lot of makeup," she said. "People are using makeup primers, and then base coats, and then these other coats, and then the spray that locks it all in."

sparkily makeup chemicals are dangers to health

Each additional product a person uses could raise the risk that their endocrine system gets disrupted, she said. Even so-called "natural" beauty products, which purport to have fewer fragrances and plasticizers than others, can still masquerade as a healthier alternative with largely the same ingredients.

"How much science do you need, when there are known carcinogens or toxicants, to make a choice to reduce exposure?" Mahalingaiah asked. "How much data do you need?" 

Still, she admits that she still falls for the shimmering, radiant formulations chemists have come up with on occasion.

"I haven't thrown everything out," Mahalingaiah said. "I just reduce the frequency of use." 

Trasande said he, too, has made changes in his home because of his research findings — he has thrown out etched and scratched kitchen plastics, and he tries to circulate more fresh air through his home to clear out toxins.

Trasande suggests consumers vet their own personal care products through a database like EWG's Skin Deep

Once you stop using endocrine-disrupting chemicals, studies suggest concentrations of them in your body can diminish quickly. A 2016 study of 100 14- to 18-year-old girls showed that when they stopped using personal-care products with ingredients like phthalates, parabens, triclosan, and BP-3, their urine concentrations of those chemicals dropped 27–45% in just three days.

Mahalingaiah said it's important for consumers to think about how to reduce their exposure: "What do you really need? Can you do with less?" she asked.

Making do with fewer products, of course, will also save you some cash.

          Mary Anning's Icthyosaur      Cache   Translate Page      


London blogging:
Essay 2 of 10 on
ten artifacts 
that I saw 
while on vacation
in London 
in summer 2015.

Mary Anning (1799-1847).

There aren’t many testaments to the achievements of 19th century women in the British Museum.  In those days, the British Royal Society and its offshoots acted as gatekeepers for recognizing scientific achievement, with their memberships strictly closed to women and lower-class riff-raff.  Science and exploration were activities reserved for gentlemen.

So who let Mary Anning in?

In gender-suppressing, class-conscious early 19th century England, Mary Anning forced her way into the museums and science books by sheer genius of observation.  Better-educated men trolled the countryside for fossils, but lower-class, under-educated Mary ran circles around them.  She was so good they eventually had to take notice.

The Mary Anning display case
at the British Museum.
While preparing for our London vacation, a friend had advised me to check out the rather drably titled Enlightenment Gallery at the British Museum.  It’s where the museum displays many of the original collections gathered during its early years, imposingly displayed in the King’s Library (which really WAS home to the King’s Library, being George III’s collection donated to the British Museum by George IV).  Row after row of display cases stand as silent testimony to England’s greatest scientists and explorers when the Empire was at its peak.

I settled in to pay my respects at the Mary Anning display case.  Raised in a poor family that earned a little extra cash each summer by selling fossils to tourists visiting Lyme Regis, Mary was just 12 years old when she and her brother Joseph made their first great discovery—a remarkably intact fossilized icthyosaur skeleton from the long-ago Jurassic world.  At a time when would-be amateur geologists and paleontologists were scouring England for prize specimens, Mary Anning nurtured a talent for finding the very finest pieces.  Although lacking formal education, she intuitively grasped the biology of the strange animals that she discovered along the limestone and shale cliffs that lined the Lyme Regis coast.

made her great discoveries.

On long-time loan from the Natural History Museum, London, the little sampling of icthyosaur bones in the British Museum display cabinet came from a later 1821 discovery, when Anning was slowly gaining a reputation for being uncommonly knowledgeable and talented.  As the label in the display cabinet describes:  “Her knowledge and expertise were sought by the most important geologists of the day.”

Mary Anning tribute at the
Natural History Museum, London.
Several days later at the Natural History Museum, I enjoyed seeing fossils associated with prominent and respected Victorian scientists such as Gideon Mantell, William Buckland, and Sir Richard Owen, but their antique fossil discoveries didn’t thrill me a tenth as much as stumbling upon more Mary Anning tributes, including a complete Plesiosaurus skeleton discovered by Anning when she was 25.

If, as Martin Luther King Jr. observed, the arc of the moral universe is long but bends toward justice, then Mary Anning is now justly receiving her due in 21st century British museums.

History vindicates.  Mary Anning rules.

Remarkable Creatures
by Tracy Chevalier.
After we returned home and shared pictures of our trip on Facebook, a friend of my wife’s inquired if we knew about Remarkable Creatures, a recent novel by Tracy Chevalier, best-selling author of Girl With a Pearl Earring.  Well, I’ve been reading about Mary Anning all my life, starting with my earliest dinosaur picture books, so I couldn’t resist.  Remarkable Creatures is a fine addition to the Mary Anning legend and a fitting tribute to one of the 19th century’s most remarkable pioneers, who fearlessly ventured back into time along the rocky ledges of her little tourist town.

          Fortnite Players On Switch Will No Longer Be Matched With Xbox One And PS4 Cross-Play Parties      Cache   Translate Page      

Welcome to the mobile pool.

Epic Games has seemingly given up on trying to make the playing field level in Fortnite across all platforms, with the recent discovery version 8.10 no longer matches Switch users with Xbox One and PlayStation 4 cross-play parties.

Prior to this update, solo Switch players were able to play with and against users on rival platforms and now owners of Nintendo's hybrid device will be limited to the mobile pool, fighting to the end for a battle royale victory against iOS and Android users. According to Epic, it'll be a better experience for everyone this way.

2017 valóban a motiválás évének bizonyult. Belső buzgólkodásom formált, felemelt, és a következőkre hagyott időt:



Fejtegetésre

A sorok mögött idén négy bejegyzést ért el (miről blogol szívesen az írószerelem mint dramaturgiai elemkörnyezet jelentősége irodalmi művekbenki mindenki vesz részt egy könyv megszületésében).
Ezek mellett önállóan is megpiszkáltam az egykönyveseket, a kezdő szerző alkalmazkodása mögötti okokat, a hétköznapi lelki nyomortÖrültem, és persze mellé írtam a mindenhol jelenlevő, mindenhová beszivárgó, ártatlannak látszó, főleg friss pályázati nyertesek körül gazként feltörő marketingről.
Cikksorozatot indítottam irodalmi ügynökségekről (1234), költőket és irodalmi pályázatokat érintő átverésekről, fizetett írói szolgáltatásokról (1234), magán (12) és szerzői kiadásról (123). Belekezdtem a közösségi könyvkiadás ismertetésébe (12), melynek folytatása következik.

Körbejárásra

Kirándultam számos helyen, anyaggyűjtési szándékkal múzeumokban (Magyar Nemzeti Galéria, Néprajzi Múzeum, Sziklakórház, Várkert bazár) jártam, ellátogattam a kisoroszi zsánerirodalmi táborba (kiváló alkalom lemérni, mennyire vagyok szociális és helyzetkomikumokkal gyarapodik a közbeszéd), és részt vettem egy írós tanfolyamon (végre sikerült meghaladnom önmagam és rájönnöm, mely eszközök rossz használatával/hiányával mentek félre régebbi írásaim). Kinéztem a 24. nemzetközi könyvfesztiválra, sőt a 9. Pozsonyi Piknikre is, igaz, ott főleg a flódnira és a Frida Kahlo sminkelésre összpontosítottam.
Novellákat bíráltam a Libellus Magazin irodalmi pályázatán. Figyelemmel követtem és követni fogom ezután is a FIÓK-ot.

Olvasásra

Szórakozva tanulni, tanulva szórakozni. Akadnak könyvek, amik önkéntelenül is csiszolnak saját írói eszköztáramon, akár úgy, hogy jó példával járnak elől, akár úgy, megmutatják, mire figyeljek, nehogy hasonló hibába essek. Idén nagy hatást gyakorolt rám Sofi Oksanen (felfejti a valóság szövetét), Megan Abbott (a nyomasztás delejes táncába hív), Donna Tartt (szavai atmoszférateremtő erővel bírnak). Rokonszenvesnek találtam Naomi Novik Rengetegét (hibáival is kerek egész), Halász Margit A vörös nyelvű párducát (korokon átívelő, népies ízű, szépirodalmi köntösben rejtező hajdúsági mágia). A fantasztikumnak kihívást jelentek: olvasmányaim közé több is bekeveredett, emlékezetessé viszont kevés vált.

Írásra

Második helyezést értem el a Próza Nostra Arany 200 – Balladaremix című novellapályázatán Madárról madárra című írásommal.
Személyes néphagyományokon urban fantasy projektem alakul, mélyül, a vadhajtást keményen metszem. Szükséges. Az őszi napforduló előtt csapott rajtam végig legfrissebb tanulságom: írás közben könnyen elszaladhat a gyeplő. Olyan elemi hibát vétettem, amire igaz: "Más szemében meglátja a szálkát, a magáéban a gerendát sem veszi észre." A mindent átvészelő, túlélő, agyonterhelt főszereplő nem hős, nem méltó csodálatra, szimplán hiteltelen. Rég halottnak/bomlott elméjűnek kéne lennie a történések árja után. Törést okozott nálam, törést olvasómnál. Arra se árt odafigyelnem, ne akarjon sokat a magát írónak nevező szarka, mert azzal túlzsúfolja a történetet és leszakad a farka. Több történetbe elegendő ötlet egy műbe szuszakolása borítékolható "hova soroljam?"-katasztrófát eredményez.

Mozgóképre

Senki se becsülje alá a sorozatok, filmek szemléletformáló, élményadó jelentőségét. A The OA eseményei különös hangulatú világba vezettek, kellő elvontság nélkül értetlenség a jussod. A Fauda belülről mutatta az izraeli-palesztin vita szereplőit, értékesebb a Homelandnél. Az Atypical felcsillantja, milyen aspergeres kamaszként a világ. Az év pozitív fantasztikus példája a Star Trek: Discovery (fárasztóan fanatikus klingonok, tipikus föderációs ideológiát szétzúzó kutatóhajó), a Stranger things (retro borzongás) a negatív viszont a B-kategóriát súroló Philip K. Dick Elektromos álmai (hiába a név ígérte minőség, képtelen felvenni a versenyt a Black Mirrorral).
Filmek terén a Számi vér jó érzékkel tárta fel a svéd-számi ellentéteket, skandinávoktól nem várt rasszizmust és az önmegvalósítás nehézségeit; A testről és lélekről a neurotipikusoknak szóló, átlag szexuális igényt kielégítő végződést leszámítva gyönyörű, érzékeny rezdülésekkel teli történet; A cure for wellness pedig tovább erősített az eldugott svájci völgyekben álló magánszanatóriumok hátborzongató kisugárzásán.

Virágzásra

Terveim felfeslenek, akár a bimbóba zárt virág napvilágra törő szirmai. Írok, mint eddig, és erős a szándék, ennek privát kereteken túlmutató nyomát hagyjam. Pár érdemesebb novellámat online leközlésre alkalmas formába rázom, izgalmas pályázat esetén pályázom. Ápolom a kapcsolatot a szerzőtársakkal, mert élvezem, és nem várok cserébe semmit. Befejezem a közösségi könyvkiadás cikksorozatomat, kitérek az interaktív regényírásra, és elmerülök benne, mennyire fontos vagy nem fontos, hogy egy szerző szimpatikus legyen.

          Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is Just 12.58 GB on Xbox One      Cache   Translate Page      

The Microsoft Store has revealed is just 12.58 GB on the Xbox One. It is likely the PlayStation 4 and Windows PC versions of the game will have a similar file size.

 

Here is an overview of the game:

Your death won’t come easily. Introducing Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice, a fantastical, dark and twisted new gameplay experience from developer From Software, creators of Bloodborne and the Dark Souls series.

Directed by Hidetaka Miyazaki, and published by Activision, Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a third-person, action-adventure game with RPG elements. The single-player game puts players in the protagonist role of a hard-hearted warrior whose mission is to rescue his master, a young lord who is the descendant of an ancient bloodline, and exact revenge on his arch nemesis. Set in the re-imagined world of late 1500s Sengoku Japan; a brutal, bloody period of constant life-and-death conflict, in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice you are the “one-armed wolf,” a disgraced and disfigured warrior rescued from the brink of death.

In the game, players come face-to-face with larger than life foes; unleash an arsenal of deadly prosthetic tools and powerful ninja abilities to blend stealth, vertical traversal, and visceral head-to-head combat in a bloody confrontation.

Take revenge. Restore your honor. Kill Ingeniously.

Key Features:

  • Kill Ingeniously – From Software delivers their best in class combat in this fast-paced, action-adventure game featuring all new mechanics.
  • Exploration is key – Players will experience the thrill of exploration and discovery in Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice like never before. Through exploration, players can uncover new items, meet new characters, and encounter hidden enemies.
  • Armed – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice gameplay is centered around sword combat, enhanced by a variety of prosthetic arm attachments that supplement or change the way a player fights. Achieving strategic mastery of “Sekiro” or the “one-armed wolf’s” techniques and abilities, from prosthetic tools, swordplay to stealth and the grappling hook is no easy feat. To overcome difficulties and bring each situation under control, gamers must discover, integrate and use a variety of new tools when heading into combat.
  • One-armed wolf – Play as a highly talented shinobi in the service of a young lord raised in isolation. After suffering defeat at the hands of a shadowy Ashina samurai seeking the unique heritage of your master, the two of you are separated. Deep in the mountains, in a dilapidated temple, you reawaken to your fate. You must take back your master and exact revenge on your enemy at all costs.
  • Hard to the core – Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice is a hard-core game worthy of the name From Software. Miyazaki designed Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice this way! Fans of From Software will find the gameplay challenging, yet fun and rewarding. The quality of combat, level of challenge, and creative enemies and bosses are something that can only be found in a From Software title.
  • Reimagined world – This reimagining of Japanese aesthetic blends a withered, yet vivid, world of the late 1500s Sengoku Japan as the age of warring states nears its end. Witness a world brought to its knees by constant bloodshed; a ravaged world on the brink of destruction. Explore these environments, rich with FromSoftware’s intricate design and steeped with secrets to discover.

Sekiro: Shadows Die Twice will launch worldwide for PlayStation 4, Xbox One and Windows PC via Steam on March 22, 2019.

          Divided We Fall      Cache   Translate Page      
Today's Two Buck Tuesday installment of the Horror Movie October graphic design calendar card series is a tale of isolation that leads to self-discovery and adventure in The Divide

"The Divide"
The Divide is one of the most intense films I've ever seen. The film starts off with asteroids destroying Earth and only gets worse from there. A group of strangers discover their true natures when locked under ground with dwindling resources. Michael Biehn's powerhouse performance is raw and emotionally over-powered, along with everyone else in the film; especially Lauren German, HeroesMilo Ventimiglia, and Michael Eklund.

Brace yourself for The Divide

Check out the trailer, and then hunt down the film. 



As always there is more to come...

          This Year, Rethink The Way You Plan a Vacation      Cache   Translate Page      
(NewsUSA) - Now is the ideal time to revisit your travel bucket list. Before you choose your destination based solely on a list, though, reflect on the types of experiences that really gratify you - culinary, history, culture, adventure. Then craft your ideal vacation from there.Seek out a well-established leader in experiential travel to give you a taste of what it's like to be a local and then some - whether it's cooking classes in a Tuscan villa or bathing with elephants at a Thailand sanctuary."At Blue-Roads Touring Company, we immerse our guests in a region's culture and customs," says Ed Pettitt, General Manager."We take them to places that are difficult or next to impossible to plan and explore on their own.

          The most important discovery of mankind.      Cache   Translate Page      
        In the world today, scientists are often talking about what they think is the most beneficial discovery to mankind.  Some say that it was the wheel, others would talk about irrigation or the light bulb.  Me, I think that the most beneficial discovery that was made by mankind is medicine and different medicinal treatments.  In this blog, I will use four images to prove that medicine is the most important discovery and that it will continue to be the most important for a long time to come.

“Statue of Asclepius, Exhibited in the Museum of Epidaurus Theatre.” Wikipedia. N.p., 1 Sept. 2001. Web. 13 Jan. 2015. <http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Asclepius#mediaviewer/File:Asklepios_-_Epidauros.jpg>.
        This is a sculpture of Asclepius, the Greek god of medicine.  The most predominant theory is that the snake is used for the fact that all snakes shed their skin and have a new skin grow which can show rejuvenation and the venom of the snake symbolizing death.  The staff is symbolic of the walking stick of the physician who is often travelling in the ancient times and now a days, the physician who is travelling by ambulance.  The snake is actually supposed to be an aesculapian snake which is non-venomous and was the image that the ancient hospitals were built around.  These hospitals would actually have these snakes living in the building and crawling around on the floor in between the patients.  The snakes on a staff is still a prominent image in the medical industry today.  Also, the attitude of the sculpture is positive which shows that medicine is a good thing to continue to develop because it will help people.  This proves that medicine is the most beneficial discovery of mankind.

“Different Types of Medicine on a White Background.” 123rf. N.p., 9 Oct. 2005. Web. 13 Jan. 2015. <http://www.123rf.com/photo_11310079_different-types-of-drugs-on-white-background.html>.
This image shows how there is many different types of medicine that have been developed in order for people to become or stay healthy.  Most medicine is used in order to help make you healthy when you have from a common cold to sicknesses as devastating as cancer or malaria.  There is also another type of medicine that most people take every day in order to help boost their immune system and even get you some of the necessary nutrients into your body.  These are vitamins.  Some people take vitamins every day and some only take them around flu season or when they are feeling like they have a pre cold.  There are also different ways in order to get medicine into your body.  Medicines taken by the mouth are the most common type of medicine takes ie. pills, inhalers and liquid medicine.  Pills are the most commonly used of these but this does not mean that they are the most effective way at stopping whatever you are trying to cure or prevent.  For instance, asthma is a relatively common thing for people to have but they don’t take pills in order to help with an asthma attack, they would use their inhaler.  All of these different types of medicine show how people believe that medicine is an important study to continue to develop.

“Needle Pill.” New Drug Delivery Capsule May Replace Injections. MIT, 1 Oct. 2014. Web. 13 Jan. 2015. <http://newsoffice.mit.edu/2014/microneedles-drug-delivery-capsule-1001>.
Not many people can honestly say that they are a fan of needles, they are pointy and feel really weird and can, in some cases, really hurt.  But now, researchers at MIT are making a new way to get medicine into your body, through a pill that is made out of acrylic with 5mm long hollow needles covering the pill in order to get the medicine into the body that you cannot ingest and would therefore have to have a needle to get into you.  This pill is covered in a ph sensitive coating that when it reaches that ph, dissolves and allows the medicine to go through the needles and into your bloodstream.  In tests on pigs, the pill was filled with insulin in order to reduce the levels of glucose in the blood of these pigs and it reduced the levels throughout the whole body in less time than through an injection.  The team of researchers are now working on a way for the movements of the digestive system to squeeze the medication out of the pill.  They are also working on an alternative method that the needles will be made out of degradable polymers and sugar so that the needles will break off in your digestive tract and will release the medicine while they disintegrate inside of you.  Doing this will make people feel a little safer with the thought of swallowing needles part of this new medical innovation.

“Elderly Man Talking with an American Doctor.” Dreamstime. CAPA, 29 May 2000. Web. 15 Jan. 2015. <http://www.dreamstime.com/stock-photography-elderly-man-talking-american-doctor-image23958702>.

Your doctor is someone that you should trust. They will always know what is best for you when you are sick or when you have injured yourself in some other way ie. a broken bone or surgery. The amount of people that doctors help in a year is the main reason why medicine is the most beneficial discovery. In this image, you can see through the attitude of the patient that he is happy that he has his doctor to help him through whatever he needs while he is hurt or sick. This point is shown especially through elderly people because they are more fragile than younger people and because of this, are more prone to injury. The doctor is also smiling showing that he is happy to help his patient. In the doctor's hands, he has an envelope which we can assume is the medicine that he is giving to the older man. This medicine could be for anything from the common cold to arthritis and for this reason, medicine is the most beneficial innovation to continue to develop to this day.
With this new knowledge, maybe you too will agree with me when I say that medicine is the most important discovery that was made by mankind and that it should continue to be developed and produced.






          Tattoos: A Body Modification or Expression?      Cache   Translate Page      

In today's society people with piercings and tattoos have been seen at a negative perspective. Individuals are judged with the stereotype that piercings and tattoos portray. Yes tattoos do define who an individual is, but, this includes their stories, what they believe in etc.. Not all tattoos make someone a bad person.

"The Tattooed Doctor." Neatorama. Purch, 23 Sept. 2007. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://www.neatorama.com/2007/09/23/the-tattooed-doctor/#!r30u6>.




We begin with the idea of approach. If you cannot approach someone how are you suppose to trust them. Someone we put a lot of our trust into is our doctors. They have our lives in their hands. A recent article explained that tattoos are becoming less problematic in workplaces. Philadelphia's ZB Sports commented, "If I'd pass on [an individual] because of their tattoos, I'd be out a phenomenal employee" (Forbes, 2014). The picture on your left shows a man who is in two positions. The attitude is shown within his stance as the image on the far left shows a concerning doctor that is willing to be of help: Verses the same man on the right slouched forward holding his belt. This demonstrates that even though this is the same man because of his tattoos he is seen as unapproachable. The irony is the photo itself: It is the exact same man but the only exception is his tattoos, would you not let him treat your health because of that?



"Tattooed Teacher." Nkeiruka Sylvanus. Nkeiruka Sylvanus, 23 Nov. 2014. Web. 12 
     Jan. 2015. <http://nkeirukasylvanus.blogspot.ca/>. 
To continue we are brought to the virtues of acceptance, sympathy,compassion and tolerance. The picture on your right is a teacher-in-training that went viral through social media and was in the newspaper. The question that was asked was, “Would you let this woman teach your child?” (Daily Mail, 2014). The actions that were thrown at Charlotte Tumilty, age 26, were not the virtues stated previous. Instead they were the complete opposite. She was asked to cover all of her tattoos as the school did not want "kiddies getting encouraging signals about inking themselves at such a tender age" stated a teacher from the school in Hartlepool. The real question is why would you not if she was certified for the job: As stated above, if you did not hire someone based on their tatoos and appearance you would be out a phenomenal employee. The picture on the upper left portrays conflict, a struggle between opposing forces, the stereotype tattoos bring and a teacher. The attitude within the Charlotte’s face is surprise. Why would someone deny her ability just because of her appearance?

"Veteran." Media NCB. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://media.nbcphiladelphia.com/images/621*349/ 
     WEB+War+Paint+1.jpgVeter>. 
Furthermore, people respect Veterans and thank them for their service: Would you deny the service he has done because of tattoos? Of course not.The tattoos shown on this Veteran are not to make him look "bad ass" or "hardcore", instead their stories, they are his stories. The symbolism within this picture is his bare chest. He has been torn apart and stripped from the war, although he may have come home to a family he is left with nothing but his memories. Haunting memories, studies have shown that 20% of all Iraq soldiers suffer from PTSD, and 50% of them do not seek help. If you are going to give a Veteran a judgmental stereotype it should be "bad ass" and "hardcore" but not because of the tattoos on his body because of his bravery. His tattoos should have nothing to do with what he is capable of, instead they're the only thing keeping him and his stories sane.


"Angelina Jolie." Fan Pop s. N.p., n.d. Web. 12 Jan. 2015. 
     <http://fanpop.com>. 

Finally we touch the topic of Angelina Jolie who portrays a vain, egotistic person on the left photo in the collage. She makes millions of dollars and spends it on stupid things like tattoos right? Wait is that the same woman who has won the humanitarian award several times? Beat Breast Cancer? Adopted Children and looks after her own? Is a loving loyal wife? Visits places all around the world taking care of helpless children? It can't be! But as matter of a fact is it. Jolie's tattoos are not meaningless, as a matter of a fact she has 17 and each one has a special meaning - this also relates back to the Vets tattoos and his stories. The one on her shoulder is the longitude and latitude of each location her children and adopted children were born. She has a huge one on her back that she got done in Thailand to express her involvement with not only her child from Cambodia but also Cambodia itself. When asked about her tattoos, Jolie said, "Usually all my tattoos came at good times. A tattoo is something permanent when you've made a self discovery or something you've come to a conclusion about" (USA Today Interview, July 17, 2003). The real Angelina Jolie is shown within the right side of the collage, a loving mother for her five children, and a loving humanitarian who cares for many children around the world. Her tattoos do not make her vain and egotistic, she has depth, she shows meaning throughout her body.

In conclusion, all 4 images prove that the negative attitude towards tattoos and piercings are inaccurate. Each image includes a public figure that is thought of highly. Tattoos do not define who a person is as they are just expressing themselves through a piece of art. This piece of art should not be looked at negatively and be able to destroy what that person is capable of.

Savage Love Letter of the Day by Dan Savage
Originally publshed October 22, 2009.

1548976856-savage-letter-of-the-day-stamp-2019.jpg

I'm a straight teenage male, but I can't climax unless I am stimulating my anus or rectum. I use various objects like cucumbers. The reason I don't buy a toy is that I live in a very religious household and my parents would disown me if they found a sex toy in my room.

I take a toilet plunger and wrap the handle with toilet paper and tissues. Then I take a plastic bag and put it over the top. After that, I wrap a rubber band around the bottom part of the bag so it can't slide off, lube it up, and fuck away! I really like this: I can put the suction part on the floor, sit on the handle part, and basically ride it while I use my hands to stroke my dick/balls.

I know you're thinking, "Gross! Do you realize that thing's been in the toilet?!" But I sterilize the handle with Lysol, then put soap on it before wrapping it with toilet paper. I also put disinfectant on the plastic bag, then wash it off with water. After I'm done, I put more disinfectant/­soap on the handle and wash it off so people who are using the plunger for its normal use don't get my ass germs. I've been doing this for about five years and haven't felt any bad symptoms except the occasional trace bleeding (I think due to not enough lube—or it may be due to the ridges of the bag). A few times I actually bled a lot (about the same amount as a medium cut on your finger) for two or three days, but I didn't feel it in my butt and only knew that I was bleeding when I took a shit.

Are homemade dildos a bad idea? Am I putting my family at risk by getting my ass germs on the plunger?

Always Nervous Until Sanitized

For the love of God, ANUS, get your hands and ass on an actual sex toy—they make dildos with suction-cup bases—before you do some real damage to yourself. Your 10-step toilet-plunger-into-anal-sex-toy plan is ingenious, I'll admit, and your concern for the health of your family is touching. But given a choice between explaining your masturbatory routine to your parents because they found a dildo in your room or explaining it to them because you wound up in an emergency room because your luck ran out and the bleeding didn't stop, ANUS, I hope you would opt for the former.

If you're worried about the repercussions of discovery—such as being disowned—then hide the dildo someplace other than your room. Got siblings? Hide your dildo in the room of your least favorite. If you're an only child, find a beat-up-looking box, a couple of porn magazines that predate your family's tenure in your home, and hide the box with the dildo and old mags in the crawl space or a drop ceiling or the rafters. If your folks find it, they'll think it belonged to some perverted previous owner or tenant, not to their straight-but-needs-anal-stimulation-to-climax son.

A word to my fellow parents: If you find a penetration toy hidden in your child's room—why were you snooping?—do not freak the fuck out, do not disown your kid, and do not discard the toy. Your child probably went to great lengths to obtain that toy—teenagers can't just walk into sex shops—and he or she probably didn't decide to run the risks of obtaining and concealing a sex toy until he or she had a bad experience with an improvised sex toy, e.g., plunger-related rectal bleeding, difficulty retrieving a cucumber from the vaginal canal. If you make a scene and take the toy, your child may not acquire another—but your child's experiments with insertion will continue. He or she will just go back to using produce (swiped from the fridge for use, then returned to the fridge after use) or plunger handles or worse.

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.

'Worth makes the man, and want of it the fellow.' [9]

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!

I have seen it regretted, that Dr. Young [20]  burnt his loose papers before his death.

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.

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.

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.

          Despite rising prices, farmers are feeling oppressed from all sides and confidence is low. Fickle urban voters are driving a flood of rules and imposing costs that make little sense to the business of farming      Cache   Translate Page      
Now sensitive urban types want sensitive protections for destructive pests

The results of the January Federated Farmers farmer survey have recently been published and makes fairly sober reading - especially in the context that prices for most commodities are reasonably sound.

Only 5.1% of respondents expected economic conditions to improve and but nearly 46% expect economic conditions to worsen, this is the worse result since July 2009.

Given the recent rises in milk prices and solid returns coming for sheep and beef farmers this level of pessimism is somewhat surprising and perhaps is a reflection of where farmers heads are at rather than a measure of what the ‘true’ economic conditions are. Apart from taxes, one thing nobody like especially in business, is uncertainty and it is coming by the bucket full in the last few months.

For dairy farmers, the still unresolved issues around the Fonterra balance sheet was probably the start and coincided with the M.Bovis outbreak. The Trump-versus-China impasse and the ongoing saga with Brexit are also contributing and then we get to the domestic situation.

Farming, and in particular dairying have been under continual pressure from what most feel is the general public, although I suspect it is more of a very vocal minority and increasingly the government is ratcheting up the rhetoric regarding the environment footprint of farming. The latest impact is the threaten introduction of a Capital Gains Tax, among others.

In the mean time the usual uncertainties that any business has to contend with are still there and these range from staffing issues to the increasing compliance costs and requirements etc etc, and then we have the spectre of climate change. The survey was done in January and while the GDT auction prices had been on their upward trend, Fonterra hadn’t updated their farmgate forecasts and so dairy farmers, which provided the gloomiest outlook, if they were surveyed again today would probably provide a (slightly) more up-beat response however the underlying mood of farming does have a lot to be concerned about.

The key messages coming out of the survey were; Global uncertainty; A drop in profitability especially in dairy and arable farms; An increase in farm expenses (this came especially from the sheep and beef sector who incidentally were the most positive of the sectors surveyed).

Almost 90% of all farms have debt and most predict it to increase particularly the ‘dairy and other sector’.

Farmers said the highest government priority should be on the economy and business and consistent with all surveys since July 2017 the biggest concern is on compliance and regulation costs. Concerns over the ETS and climate change have levelled out and one area that has decreased is concern over the political situation.

The attitudes of the public psyche is constantly-shifting territory and this was brought home to me in a report out of Gisborne regarding the discovery of 14 leg traps, not the long spring gin traps, on Kaiti hill. There is no confusion that the setting of traps in this area is inappropriate.  Above the old Kaiti freezing works, which is an area now with bars and cafes it is a bush covered hill but very close to residential areas and pets and public alike. The ‘bit’ I found of interest was the terminology used around a possum that was caught in one of the traps, “Biosecurity officers were called to euthanise the injured and distressed animal”. It would have not been long ago that the possum would have been dispatched and barely a mention made of it.

The trend now to apply  somewhat emotive terms to what would have to be one of if not the major introduced pest in New Zealand is interesting and an attitude livestock farmers need to be well aware of with their farming practices.

When ‘sympathetic’ language is being applied to possums then practices like tailing and dehorning cannot be far away from coming under increased public scrutiny. Urban attitudes are fickle and constantly moving ground, but in recent years the speed of change, especially as applied to livestock and agricultural systems is taking some keeping up with.

El truco de la ketamina: cómo cobrar 885 dólares por un antidepresivo que cuesta 10 en cualquier farmacia#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

El 5 de marzo, la FDA estadounidense aprobó el uso de la esketamina para la depresión resistente al tratamiento. Dicho con otras palabras, aprobó un antidepresivo en spray nasal que muchos medios cubrieron en términos de "avance revolucionario". Sin embargo, a poco que analizamos el caso se vuelve mucho más interesante.

La historia de los tratamientos para la depresión basados en la ketamina es la historia de por qué la industria farmacéutica necesita una seria reforma que rompa con los incentivos perversos de la actual propiedad intelectual.

¿Qué es la Ketamina?

Ketamine Vials

La ketamina es un anestésico disociativo muy usado durante los últimos 40 años en medicina y veterinaria. En 1962, Calvin L Stevens sintetizó por primera la ketamina mientras buscaba un sedante seguro de uso veterinario. En 1964 se iniciaron los experimentos en humanos que demostraron que se trataba del anestésico más usable y menos tóxico de los que estaban en el mercado. A partir de 1970, con la aprobación de la FDA, la droga empieza usarse masivamente en la guerra de Vietnam.

Por esa misma época, alguien se debió dar cuenta de que, a dosis subanestésicas, la ketamina era capaz de producir una enorme cantidad de efectos que van desde suaves distorsiones perceptivas a alucinaciones muy muy intensas. Aunque ya entonces empezó su uso no médico en la costa oeste de Estados Unidos, no es hasta finales de los 90 cuando de la mano de la cultura dance se populariza como droga de forma brutal. En 1999, EEUU la metió en la lista de sustancias controladas.

Llegamos a la década de los 2000 con un anestésico de uso común fuertemente controlado por su uso como droga recreativa. Fue justo en esa década cuando empiezan a aparecer estudios que señalan que la ketamina podría ser un buen tratamiento para la depresión. En 2017, una revisión sistemática llegó a decir que podía tratarse del "el avance más importante en el tratamiento de la depresión en más de 50 años".

Si somos rigurosos, no hace falta mucho para convertirse en el "avance más importante" en un mundo como el de los antidepresivos donde el efecto placebo es enorme, pero sí señala algo crucial: la evidencia que relacionaba ketamina y depresión era algo digno de estudiarse con detalle. Algo que durante 20 años no se hizo.

¿Por qué?

Infodrogas Keta

Es más fácil de entender de lo que parece. Aunque cuestionada, la popularidad de la ketamina entre pacientes de depresión resistentes al tratamiento llegó hasta tal punto que, en muchos países, empezaron a surgir clínicas que hacían infusiones sanguíneas de ketamina para tratar estos problemas aunque oficialmente realizaran esas infusiones con otros objetivos terapéuticos. ¿Por qué las autoridades sanitarias no reconocían ese uso si todos sabemos que es un uso real?

Porque nadie había intentado que ese uso se reconociera. En principio, las autoridades del medicamento no realizan los estudios necesarios para autorizar fármacos. Son las farmacéuticas las que reúnen los datos necesarios y solicitan a los gobiernos la autorización. Lo que ocurre con la ketamina es que es una vieja conocida: no se puede patentar.

Y, en estos casos, es comercialmente inviable realizar los estudios necesarios para aprobar un nuevo uso de un medicamento. Ninguna compañía está dispuesta a dedicar decenas de años, cientos de personas y millones de dólares en conseguir una aprobación que no puede rentabilizar. Durante años, la ketamina esperó a su mecenas: alguna institución pública o un filántropo que decidiera sacarla del limbo. Pero, quizás por ser un narcótico, nunca llegó. Así que la industria decidió usar la "puerta de atrás".

El truco de la ketamina

Zone

Siendo justos, no es el "truco de la ketamina". Es una práctica habitual en el mundillo. Lo que suelen hacer las farmacéuticas es buscar una compuesto químico similar, pero con algún pequeño cambio (normalmente trivial) de tal forma que pueda ser patentado. Eso es lo que hizo Janssen y, por eso, lo que ha aprobado la FDA se llama esketamina.

Con este truco, se podrá cobrar entre 590 y 885 dólares por dosis de algo que hoy por hoy cuesta unos diez dólares

Un compuesto idéntico en lo esencial, pero "propiedad" de la farmaceútica. Algo que les permitirá cobrar entre 590 y 885 dólares por dosis cuando la ketamina normal costaría unos 10.

Por otro lado, la aprobación del uso no ha estado exenta de polémica. Como sugieren la mayoría de expertos, el procedimiento de aprobación ha sido un poco menos exigente de lo habitual. Es razonable pensar que esto se debe a la sencilla razón de que la evidencia de que la ketamina tiene efectos antidepresivos equivalentes a los de los productos actuales es, hoy por hoy, abrumadora. De hecho, el propio informe sobre la esketamina deja claro eso: que es igual de mala y de buena que el resto de antifepresivos. Solo faltaba que alguien pusiera el dinero encima de la mesa.

La "revolución" antidepresiva

Con la aprobación, la FDA resuelve un problema: el de las clínicas que usan la ketamina de forma no regulada. Sin embargo, añade otros nuevos: el formato de tratamiento. Se trata de un spray nasal que debe aplicarse dos veces a la semana durante un mes mientras se toma otro antidepresivo oral. Esas aplicaciones, además, tendrán que realizarse en el hospital o clínica donde los pacientes deberán esperar dos horas en observación.

Como explicaba antes, la mayoría de esas clínicas hacían infusiones sanguíneas de ketamina, es decir, aplicaban la droga por vía intravenosa. Janssen propuso el spray nasal con la idea de aligerar un procedimiento engorroso que, además, necesita mucho personal humano. Sin embargo, la FDA no se fía y no quiere convertir la esketamina en una suerte de legalización encubierta de la droga recreativa.

El resultado es un medicamento caro, con una vía de administración menos estudiada, un procedimiento de aplicación bastante burocrático y con muchas dudas sobre su eficacia. Todo para poder usar un tratamiento que ya se utiliza en miles de clínicas de todo el mundo. A veces, la industria farmacéutica es un completo sinsentido.

Rembrandt in the Blood: An Obsessive Aristocrat, Rediscovered Paintings and an Art-World Feud: No one had spotted a new painting by the Dutch master for four decades -- until the scion of a storied Amsterdam family found two. (Russell Shorto, Feb. 27, 2019, NY Times Magazine)

The discovery that upended Jan Six's life occurred one day in November 2016. Six is a 40-year-old Dutch art dealer based in Amsterdam, who attracted worldwide attention last year with the news that he had unearthed a previously unknown painting by Rembrandt, the most revered of Dutch masters -- the first unknown Rembrandt to come to light in 42 years. The find didn't come about from scouring remote churches or picking through the attics of European country houses, but rather, as Six described it to me last May, while he was going through his mail. He had just taken his two small children to school (in true Dutch fashion, by bicycle: one seated between the handlebars and the other in back). The typical weather for the season, raw wind and spitting rain, would never deter a real Amsterdammer from mounting his bike -- and Six's roots in the city go about as deep as possible -- but by the time he arrived at his office, he was feeling the effects. Waterkoud ("water cold") is the Dutch word for the chilly dampness of the Low Countries that seeps into the bones.

The antidote to that feeling is encompassed in another word. Gezelligheid, loosely translated as coziness, is the condition people in the Netherlands strive for in the interiors of their homes. It's often what's being depicted and celebrated in old-master canvases from the Golden Age of the 17th century, the era that is Six's specialty: warm domestic scenes, merry companies hoisting tankards, still lifes of tables laden with food. Six's office, on the ground floor of a building on the Herengracht, one of the city's main canals -- a canal that Rembrandt himself used to stroll -- has its share of gezelligheid. The building dates from the early 1600s. Ancient beams cross the ceiling. The views out of the windows are of bicyclists racing by and the evocative, ever-somber surface of the canal reflecting the gabled facades of the buildings on the opposite side.

Six made coffee that morning, then sat down to a stack of mail. He dispensed with the bills and other annoyances first so as to settle into the catalogs of coming art auctions. One was for a December event at Christie's in London. He skimmed it quickly, almost dismissively; it was for the daytime sale, which featured lesser objects. The top paintings and sculptures are always reserved for the evening.

And then, he told me, he stopped cold. The slightly miscolored photograph in the catalog was a portrait of a rather dazed-looking young gentleman with a lace collar and a proto-Led Zeppelin coif. What first spoke to Six was the gaze of the subject (whose identity remains unknown): "He pierces the image," he said. Six felt that he had seen the work before, but after tearing through his library in search of it, he came to believe it wasn't the actual image that struck him as familiar but the sum of all the telltale features of an early Rembrandt. These include, in Six's estimation, the humanness of that gaze, a "rounded" brush stroke and a willingness to employ different painting styles within the same work.

The painting dated from somewhere between 1633 and 1635. The giveaway was the particular type of lace collar, which was the height of fashion in that brief span and then quickly went out of style. What especially excited Six was not just that Christie's had failed to see that the painting was most likely from the hand of the master, but also that the auction house had labeled it "circle of Rembrandt" -- i.e., from a follower. "You see the problem, right?" he asked me. I was puzzling for the solution to the riddle when he blurted it out: "Rembrandt wasn't famous yet in the early 1630s, so there was no circle. I knew right away Christie's had screwed up."

From there, Six was a bloodhound on the trail. He learned that the painting's provenance went back to Sir Richard Neave, an English merchant of the late 1700s who built a serious art collection, which included works by Thomas Gainsborough and John Constable; the painting had stayed in the same family for six generations. This fit: It made sense that a painting by a top-tier artist would have attracted a prominent collector.

Six was so excited that he jumped on his bike and cycled a short distance across central Amsterdam to the home of Ernst van de Wetering, universally renowned as a top authority on Rembrandt; still breathless, Six thrust a photocopy of the picture at him. As befits a person whose opinion is weighted with import, van de Wetering typically reacts with reserve on first seeing an image, but he was intrigued. "It looked like a Rembrandt, but it was completely new to me," van de Wetering told me later. Six cycled back home and bought a plane ticket.

в 1982 году состоялась премьера мультипликационного фильма «Закон племени». Производство: Союзмультфильм, 1982. Режиссер: Владимир Пекарь. Сценаристы: Д.Энтина, Владимир Пекарь. Художник-постановщик: Татьяна Колюшева. Оператор: Кабул Расулов. Композитор: Эдуард Артемьев. По мотивам произведений африканских художников школы Пота-пота.

в 1982 году в резне Рио-Негро было зверски убито 177 майя: 70 женщин и 107 детей. В шесть часов утра армия вошла в поселение одной из общин Рио-Негро. Солдаты врывались в дома, разыскивая мужчин, которые в это время скрывались в горах. Не найдя никого они заставили танцевать женщин и детей, так, как они "танцевали для партизан". Молодых девушек подвергли изнасилованию. После, солдатня заставила подняться индейцев в горы, периодически избивая их, во время этого 3-х мильного пути. Когда колонна достигла вершины Пакокшом Хилл, солдаты расстреляли всех, сбросив трупы женщин и детей в яму, завалив ее ветками и камнями. Это массовое убийство была лишь частью большой резни в Рио-Негро (1980-1982). В 1978 году в условиях гражданской войны, правительство Гватемалы продолжила свою программу экономического развития, в том числе строительство плотины Чиксой. Финансируемая в основном за счет Всемирного банка и Межамериканского банка развития, плотина была возведена в Рабиналь, департамент Баха-Верапас, в местах исторически населенных майя-ачи. Для завершения строительства необходимо было переселение общин, которые отказались переселяться со своих земель в окружающие нагорья. Правительство пообещало уничтожить их. В период с 1980 по 1982 год военизированными отрядами было убито около 5 000 человек.

По мотивам произведений Важи Пшавелы. Деревенский парень Беруа безнадежно влюблен в Софо, дочь достаточно зажиточного крестьянина, мечтающего выдать ее за богатого или именитого человека. И поэтому, когда порог его дома переступил разорившийся князь, отец Софо был несказанно рад. Правда радовался он до тех пор, пока не понял, что князь — хвастливый лгунишка, бездельник и попрошайка, и, к тому же, вряд ли его любимая дочь будет счастлива, если не выйдет замуж за Беруа. Фильм поставлен по произведениям грузинского писателя Важи Пшавелы: «Дареджан», «Холера помогла», «Сельские картинки».

Космический корабль типа "Союз 7К-СТ", сер. №21Л выведен на орбиту с параметрами: наклонение орбиты - 51,6 град.; период обращения - 89,7 мин.; минимальное расстояние от поверхности Земли (в перигее) - 240 км.; максимальное расстояние от поверхности Земли (в апогее) - 298 км. Началась первая основная космическая экспедиция на станцию "Мир" (продолжалась 125 суток). 20 февраля 1986 года в Советском Союзе был произведен запуск орбитальной научной станции "Мир", пришедшей на смену орбитальным станциям "Салют". Новая станция представляла собой базовый блок для построения многоцелевого постоянно действующего пилотируемого комплекса со специализированными орбитальными модулями научного и народнохозяйственного значения. В дальнейшем к станции были пристыкованы и начали работу модули "Квант", "Квант-2", "Кристалл", "Спектр" . Строительство до недавнего времени единственного в мире постоянно обитаемого орбитального комплекса было полностью завершено 26 апреля 1996 года, когда к "Миру" был пристыкован пятый, последний модуль дооснащения - "Природа" со сложнейшей научной аппаратурой. Первая долговременная экспедиция прибыла на станцию на корабле «Союз Т-15» (космонавты Леонид Кизим и Владимир Соловьев) и работала на орбите с 13 марта по 16 июля 1986 года. Во время этой экспедиции был совершен уникальный эксперимент: перелет со станции "Мир" на станцию "Салют-7" и обратно на "Союзе Т-15". Это был первый опыт, закладывающий основы межорбитальных перелетов и обслуживания в будущем космических баз-станций. Космонавты провели ряд работ на станции "Салют-7", в частности, эксперимент по разворачиванию трансформируемой фермы "Маяк". Эксперименты по развертыванию больших конструкций являлись наиболее важными среди работ НПО "Энергия" и ферма "Маяк" - один из таких экспериментов, который проводился совместно с ИЭС имени Е.О.Патона. При возвращении обратно на станцию "Мир" космонавты захватили с собой часть исследовательского оборудования, так как работы на прежней станции «Салют-7» были уже прекращены. За время пребывания на орбитальной станции «Мир» космонавты осуществили два выхода в открытый космос продолжительностью три часа 50 минут и пять часов. Были проведены всесторонние испытания элементов конструкции базового блока, настройка бортовой аппаратуры. 16 июля в космическом корабле «Союз-Т-15» космонавты вернулись на Землю. Всего на комплексе «Мир» было проведено 28 долговременных экспедиций, на нем побывали 105 космонавтов и астронавтов из 11 стран мира.

At first I thought it was a channel. It looked as if someone was doing what I had been wanting to do. However, it was only a one-off.


Still, I’ll be able to use it. And also, I’ve just realized, it leaves the door open for me. Not only that, it provides—outside of that door—a vista that indicates the destination.

          CEO Rajiv Bakshi unveils transformational roadmap for Big Synergy      Cache   Translate Page      

MUMBAI: Rajiv Bakshi describes his latest gig – CEO Big Synergy – as a homecoming to the media and entertainment ecosystem. During his 13-year stay at Discovery Networks, Bakshi helped curate thousands of hours of content across factual, lifestyle, kids’ categories among others. More importantly, his stint coincided with the network introducing and expanding new genres that delivered a lasting impact on television and the society at large.

Bakshi has witnessed the evolution of India’s media and entertainment industry from close quarters. The perks of his ringside seat have helped him compartmentalise that evolution into three distinct phases.

“When I started in television in the early 2000s, it was the era of ad sales. Everything was about attaining reach and filling the inventory. Post digitisation, the era of distribution set in and pay-TV model emerged as a strong component. Channels started getting rewarded for differentiated and high-value content. Now we have entered the most exciting and dynamic phase where content and consumer form the core of the business. I call it the golden era of content,” he says.

With the emergence of OTT and Indian broadcast getting sharply segmented into genres and regions, the direct and immediate benefits to the balance sheet from content innovation are substantial. In addition to that, there are exciting possibilities for building personalised relationships with consumers on mobile devices.

“The research and analytics available in terms of content and storytelling with respective audience sets are both liberating and refreshing for content creators. The content explosion being witnessed is most satisfying and charges us to deliver influence and impact,” highlights Bakshi.

Reliance Entertainment's Big Synergy today produces content for all platforms. Widely regarded as a content powerhouse when it comes to non-fiction, the company is now pushing to becoming a power player in the fiction arena.

“In the next 12 months, you’ll witness a lot of disruptive content from Big Synergy across all genres and formats. We have a range of high decibel developed projects aligned with top directors and writers slated for 2020 launch,” Bakshi points out.

The company is committed to invest in three key areas for growth - original formats and rights, scaling talent and teams, and building the finest production capabilities.

“The thing we are always working hard is to anticipate change. Client's requirements and business models and the market dynamics are ever changing, and therefore we prefer to invest in research and keep our ears on the ground to stay on top of things and trigger new trends,” the veteran executive adds.

The dependence on content to differentiate a brand is the biggest new development. With most of the markets now progressing towards a pay model, differentiated content will be the trigger for revenue and audience growth. 

“It’s a period of transformation. The demand for fiction content, with OTT platforms appearing in the last few years, is on the up. The market has immense confidence in Big Synergy’s capabilities to produce breakthrough fiction content. Our parent company has produced some of the biggest movies and OTT show and offers us access to the finest creative talent and partnerships and an overall environment of mass entertainment. We are all set to wow the market,” says Bakshi with a great deal of confidence.

There's absolute clarity at the company in terms of what it has set out to achieve. Bakshi's vision has percolated down to the bottom of the pyramid.

"We want to produce the biggest fiction series on both OTT and broadcast, on both original and acquired formats. Dailies for GECs are something we are investing in. In non-fiction, we have some amazing in-house formats and a large slate of acquired formats and then we are also evaluating co-developing new formats with international partners. Expansion into regional space, on both broadcast and OTT is also high on priority," he states.

So, what are the obstacles that could prevent the team from accomplishing its goals?

"The only challenge could be to prioritise the right stories, formats, partners, acquisition and talent," he remarks.

Content creation is an intricate affair. It’s also an expensive affair. According to industry estimates, the top 15 OTT platforms are spending Rs 1000 crore annually on Originals. Therefore, content creators apply a series of filters to a project before giving it the green signal. There’s more to the process than just the power of the story. Content creation today comprises algorithms and data analysis. And yes, consumption trends.

Bakshi, however, has a rather different take on the matter at least when it comes to adopting trends as a marker for content creation.

“Trends typically do not occur over quarters, they establish over years. So I can’t certainly say we’ll have a dramatic new change this year. The trends from the last couple of years will continue - to produce sharper and bolder stories with great characters. And, I think the biggest trend will be to invest in a variety of content and not over depend on any one particular genre,” he says.

So, how does he greenlight a project?

“Story, characters and team's conviction. These factors help us in backing a project. We have a good sense of what is happening and we continue to invest in research to comprehend emerging trends,” is his instant response.

Creating content for some of India’s largest broadcast and OTT platforms is now a high-stakes play. The top five streaming platforms are not shying away from writing big checks and are certainly here to stay. As companies vie relentlessly for a piece of the consumer’s attention and wallet, collaborating with the best content producers is of paramount importance.

Therefore, companies like Big Synergy are bound to play a vital role in helping further build and scale up India’s content creation ecosystem. While Bakshi does not carry the burden having to shell out millions of dollars for consumer acquisition, he does have to achieve some significantly lofty targets. “Surpassing client's goals, team's ambitions and establishing new performance and quality benchmarks. And yes, a growing bottom line,” he signs off.

          Loaded handgun found in Denver Jail toilet, DPD launches internal investigation      Cache   Translate Page      
DENVER — A loaded handgun was probably the last thing a custodian expected to find in a toilet at the Denver Detention Center Sunday afternoon. The discovery has sparked an internal affairs investigation by Denver police and new charges for DUI suspect Derek Moore. The  30-year-old was arrested before 5 a.m. Sunday after police say he was the at-fault driver in a car accident near South Dayton and East Hampden Avenue. Police reports obtained by the Problem Solvers show Moore […]
          'Consumed With Anxiety': Late NYC High School Acceptances Put Families On Edge       Cache   Translate Page      

Students applying to public high schools in New York City are still awaiting notification about the first round of admissions, which have been unusually delayed compared to previous years.

About 80,000 students and their families are in a state of limbo, on edge about which schools their student has been accepted to or rejected from. The application process lasts for months. 

“And then they wait, and they wait, and they wait,” said Laura Zingmond, Senior Editor for InsideSchools at The New School. “And it’s where they end up for the next four years, so you can imagine the anxiety over that.”

A Department of Education spokesman said offer letters will not go out until later this month. For comparison, they went out on March 7 last year.

The reason for the delay can be traced back to an ongoing lawsuit challenging the city’s selection process for specialized high schools, according to spokesman Doug Cohen. He said the timing was “unfortunate.”

We’ve provided updates to families over the past several weeks, and will send another notice a few days before offers are released,” said Cohen.

For families who are also applying to private schools, the delayed notification puts them in a potentially risky financial position: March 14 is the deadline to put down a hefty deposit at independent schools. 

“It's a substantial sum of money, and there are thousands of parents throughout the metropolitan area who are in a similar situation,” said Ilene Jeroslaw, a parent of a ninth grader looking to transfer. The extended delay has made her daughter and other students “consumed with anxiety.”

The motion seeking an injunction over the city’s proposed expansion of the Discovery Program created an uncertain climate for the calculation of the available seats at specialized and non-specialized schools, according to the education department. In court filings from January, attorneys for the city asked Judge Edgardo Ramos to issue a ruling on the motion by Feb. 25 in order for them to notify families by March 18, “the latest feasible date to mail offer letters.”

Judge Ramos met that deadline, ruling late last month that the city could proceed with the adjusted admissions process. But the Department of Education will no longer publicly commit to sending out offer letters by March 18, instead only generally stating that notifications will go out this month.

The city originally planned to make offers to families on March 4, according to court filings.


          New York Court Dismisses Medical Malpractice Case for Plaintiff’s Failure to Participate in Discovery      Cache   Translate Page      
In medical malpractice cases, a plaintiff’s right to recover damages depends on both the factual evidence in support of his or her claim and whether he or she complies with the procedural requirements set forth under the law. Even if a plaintiff has clear evidence of malpractice, he or she may be precluded from recovering from the defendant if he or she refuses to comply with the obligations imposed by the law. This was evidenced in a recent case in which the appellate division of the Supreme Court of New York affirmed the dismissal of the plaintiff’s case due to a willful refusal to participate in discovery. If you or a loved one suffered damages due to medical treatment that fell below the standard of care, you should speak with a knowledgeable Syracuse medical malpractice attorney as soon as possible to analyze the circumstances that brought about your harm and your options for pursuing compensation.

La temporada 2018-19 del WEC vuelve a la vida con la celebración de las 1.000 Millas de Sebring, sexta ronda del campeonato y primera de 2019. Tras la victoria del Toyota #7 de José María 'Pechito' López, Mike Conway y Kamui Kobayashi en Shanghái, la clasificación general llega realmente apretada a un circuito distinto al resto de los que componen el calendario y en el que se disputará la segunda ronda más larga del certamen. Sébastien Buemi, Fernando Alonso y Kazuki Nakajima, pilotos del Toyota #8, encaran esta prueba como líderes.

Alonso buscará su quinto podio en el WEC y continuar así al frente del campeonato tras las victorias logradas en Spa-Francorchamps y Le Mans junto a sus compañeros. En este aspecto, Toyota es la favorita para lograr el triunfo y un nuevo doblete en Sebring, más cuando los nuevos ajustes de la 'Equivalence of Technology' indican que los LMP1 no híbridos tendrán menos potencia disponible en el circuito situado en Florida.

La carrera se podrá ver en varios formatos, tanto por televisión, como por Internet. En el primer caso, sin noticias del canal temático Discovery Max (DMAX) desde las primeras rondas del campeonato, el canal deportivo de pago Eurosport será el encargado de emitir las 1.000 Millas de Sebring al completo, si bien también la carrera se puede ver en Motors TV, canal que sin embargo no está disponible en todos los operadores de pago.

También existen varias opciones a través de internet. La primera es Eurosport Player, que ofrecerá la retransmisión de la clasificación de las categorías GTE y LMP, así como la prueba íntegra. El coste mensual del acceso a dicha plataforma es de 6,99€, mientras que la oferta anual asciende hasta los 39,99€, si bien hasta el 17 de marzo hay una oferta con el 50% de descuento.

También existe la opción de contratar el Pack Super Season del WEC con un coste de 16,99€ a cambio de lo que resta de temporada (3 pruebas) y que incluye 'Live Timing', cámaras en directo, repeticiones y ediciones de los mejores momentos entre otras cosas. Paralelamente, existe la opción de contratar únicamente las 1.000 Millas de Sebring con los mismos servicios por sólo 5,49€.

Adicionalmente, desde Motor.es ofreceremos toda la información relacionada con cada sesión del evento, así como las declaraciones de los pilotos y lo más relevante de lo ocurrido durante el fin de semana en el circuito internacional de Shanghái.

          Update on the Tel Zayit Abecedary      Cache   Translate Page      
On March 8, 2006, Dr. Ron Tappy made a further presentation on the Tel Zayit abecedary. Here are some details from the Tel Zayit website which correspond to his talk.
    1. The Tel Zayit finding is an inscription that bears the oldest known securely datable example of an abecedary, that is, the letters of the alphabet written out from beginning to end in their traditional sequence.

    2. The inscribed stone might have been built into the wall because of the ancient belief in the alphabet's magical or apotropaic power, that is, its ability to ward off evil.

    3. The stone bearing the Tel Zayit Inscription comprised part of a wall belonging to a structure that dates to the late tenth century BCE.

    4. Preliminary results suggest that in the tenth century BCE Tel Zayit was associated with the highland culture of southern Canaan, not the coastal culture of the Philistine plain, and therefore it very well may have functioned as part of the new state being formed by Kings David and Solomon, with its capital at Jerusalem.

    5.. The early appearance of literacy at Tel Zayit will play a pivotal role in the current discussion of the archaeology and history of Israel and Judah in the tenth century BCE.

    6..It raises the possibility that formal scribal training at the outlying site of Tel Zayit was a result of a rapidly developing Israelite bureaucracy in Jerusalem.
Some find that there is a series of abstract leaps here from one thing to another. I find that the extension from the original inscription on stone to a bureacracy is somewhat bold. Maybe they both existed, but the connection seems tenuous.

Here are four statements from the Wikipedia entry.
    1. It was found in-situ in a stratum dated to the 10th century BCE by a fire dated to approximately 900 BCE.

    2. Until this discovery, critics could say inhabitants of this region at this period were illiterate and could not have recorded events mentioned in the Bible.

    3. It not only preserves writing--simple graffiti--but an abecedary, an educational tool for literate people (although there are 4 pairs of letters swapped from their traditional alphabetic order, and possibly 2 other misplaced letters were aborted; indications that reflect negatively on the scribe's skill level).

    4. The site is located in a region not central to the government of the Israelite monarchy (Jerusalem), which suggests that if people in this agricultural community could write, certainly people in the government were equally capable.
However, Paul Iverson, of Case Western Reserve University recently sent an e-mail regarding Dr. Tappy's March 8th presentation at the Cleveland Museum of Natural History. Iverson has a particular interest in Greek epigraphy and philology. He sent this email to Chris Heard on Higgaion.

Iverson states,

    His arguments that this inscription is an abecedarium that provides evidence for an alternate official order (I can't understand the claim on the website of a "traditional sequence" since it clearly isn't the traditional order as Tappy pointed out several times) of the letters is also rather rash.

    I would offer two other more likely explanations: either it was a novice who was practicing and thus made mistakes (quite common on Greek examples), or it was someone who was more concerned with practicing the shapes of the letters rather than the order (i.e., it's not really meant to be a abecedarium).

    I incline toward the latter explanation as the letters seemed to be of high quality. Some scribe who's interested in practicing or giving an example of his letter strokes does not worry so much about inscribing them deeply or in their proper order - just give them all and inscribe them deep enough to practice the shapes. Again, on comparative material from the Greek world, one often finds abecedaria with peculiar orders in the letters or shapes, even as late as the fifth century BCE.
And he sums up his arguments as follows,

    To recap: the inscription was probably reused into the wall without some apotropaic [magical]purpose, hence it cannot simply be assumed to date at the time the wall was built -- rather it dates before the wall was built.

    Only a small fraction of the Tell has been excavated, so it cannot yet be claimed with certainty that there was nothing going there in the 11th century and thus that inscription has to be during the 10th century.

    It was found in a context where there was both coastal and highland culture so as of yet, so far as I could tell, it cannot fairly be claimed to incline toward the highland (i.e., it cannot be said to be the earliest example of a Hebrew alphabet).

    It cannot even be said that this was meant to be an abecedarium in the sense that it was used to display the official order of the letters of the alphabet, since we do not know the purpose of it.
There is a post on Abnormal Interests on the order of the inscription, and Dr. Joe Cathey comments here. An ealrier post on Higgaion makes some excellent points.

I would like to add my own little comment. I worked for several years on a study of literacy among the James Bay Cree. There are many conflicting and contradictory theories on the origins of this literate tradition, and I think some of them could possibly be cleared up in my lifetime. But that story starts in the 1800's .

Season 3 of 'One Day at a Time' is Praised for Deftly Handling Consent and Toxic Masculinity

Image Courtesy of Netflix

Netflix’s modern reboot of One Day at a Time is truly crafty. Just when you think you've signed up for a lighthearted family sitcom, it hits you with poignant takes on social issues. 

In its third season, which dropped on February 8, series co-developers Gloria Calderón Kellett and Mike Royce apply this winning formula to consent, toxic masculinity, sexual harassment, female and queer empowerment through the lenses of generation and gender.

With the rise of #MeToo over the last year, several television shows have chimed in to address these themes in their own way, including Younger, Will & Grace, GLOW, and BoJack Horseman. But ODAAT stands out because it offers a unique point of view, showing how a regular family can and should deal with these issues.

In the new season's second episode, titled "Outside," ODAAT involves all the family members in this vital discussion about consent. They dive deep into their individual experiences related to harassment, which culminates into a remarkably honest discussion. Almost the entire episode takes place in the living room of the Alvarez home as each member gets to unpack their viewpoint. 

The biggest takeaway from the episode is just how big of a teachable moment this is for Alex. ODAAT sends a strong message about educating boys from a very young age about the importance of consent and an enthusiastic yes.

"In the first centuries of our era, the [[Gnosticism |Gnostics]] disputed with the [[Christianity |Christians]]. They were annihilated, but we can imagine their possible victory. Had Alexandria triumphed and not Rome, the bizarre and confused stories that I have summarized would be coherent, majestic, and ordinary. Lines such as Novalis' "[[Life is a sickness of the spirit]],"* or Rimbaud's despairing "[[True life is absent; we are not in the world]]," would fulminate from the canonical books. Speculations, such as Richter's discarded theory about the [[Panspermia|stellar origin of life]] and its chance dissemination on this planet, would know the unconditional approval of pious laboratories. In any case, what better gift can we hope for than to be insignificant? What greater glory for a God than to be absolved of the world?

<nowiki>*</nowiki>That dictum-"[[Leben ist eine Krankheit des Geistes, ein leidenschaftliches Tun]]" owes its diffusion to [[Carlyle]], who emphasized it in his famous article in the ''[[Foreign Review]]'', 1829. Not merely a momentary coincidence, but rather an essential rediscovery of the agonies and enlightenments of Gnosticism, is the Prophetic Books of William Blake."--"[[A Defense of Basilides the False]]", [[Jorge Luis Borges]]

Dante & Virgil at the foot of the Mountain
Engraving by Gustave Doré






" To course o'er more kindly waters now
   my talent's little vessel lifts her sails,
   that leaves behind a sea so cruel;

  And of that second kingdom will I sing,
   wherein the human spirit doth purge,
   becoming worthy of ascent to
   Heaven... "
      - DANTE & VIRGIL IN PURGATORY









Dante Alighieri may have endured Hell, quite literally, and all its horrors and chills, but the journey was not complete. It seemed an age since that night he had walked the dark forest path, midway through life, but adventure lay far ahead yet. The terrible retribution suffered by the souls of the damned was but a part of the hand dealt by God to man when the hour of reckoning comes...

Bursting forth from the dank and unforgiving realm of Lucifer's gaol, it was with a deep breath that Dante greeted the cool air again. Noxious fumes and at once stifling heat and piercing freeze was cast aside, replaced by a serener ambience. Stars punctuated the night sky, as both Dante and his guide and master, the mighty Virgil, found themselves at the root of a mountain more vast than any that towered over the world of still breathing men. Down and down in Inferno had they travelled, yet here in the Midworld, the only path lay up. This was Purgatory, neither damnation nor salvation, Heaven nor Hell, here nor there. Here dwell man and woman alike after death, awaiting judgement. Noble yet flawed in life, here they atone for their earthly sins, before they are welcomed in Heaven above. Abandon all hope, ye who enter here, the Gate of Hell had declared. Yet here in Purgatory, it is hope which lifts the spirits of all. For all here will one day enter Heaven, when their sentence is served.


The Death of Cato
Painting by Pierre Bouillon
With a start our pilgrim was made aware of a presence at his side. "Who are ? Ye who counter the blind river, have fled away from the eternal prison?", the stranger barked. None before had broken out of the dark abyss, since when had the damned been cast upon the root of the penitent Mount? "Who guided you?" he demanded. To Dante's rescue, silver tongued Virgil came. "A Lady from Heaven descended, at whose prayers I aided this one with my company", the poet declared. Beckoning at his companion, he argued that as he was not yet among the ranks of the dead, he was not subject to the ancient laws of the afterworld, and he sought only liberty. It was then that Virgil, spying a bloodied wound on the stranger's chest, that he recognised the man. A fellow Roman of yore, there stood before them Cato, staunch enemy of Caesar and Republican to the bitter end, who took his own life at Utica when his designs came to naught, and the Republic of the Romans breathed its last. Virgil informed Cato that Dante lived with hope to see his beloved Beatrice again, high in the Kingdom of Light. The hardened expression on their interrogator softened at once, moved with memories of the Marcia he once knew. "Marcia so pleasing was unto mine eyes whilst on the other side I dwelled...", he reminisced. "Now that she dwells beyond the evil river, she can no longer move me..." he lamented. Go forth, he commanded, and dally not under the command of the Lord. 'Do not return this way, and follow the rising Sun', his last words were. Dante looked at the path ahead. Steep indeed it was. Looking back, Cato's spirit was no more.


The Arrival of the Waiting
Engraving by Gustave Doré
Dawn had broken, and already the Sun had crested the horizon of the endless ocean. Through the haze Mars glowed a burning red, when suddenly a light flashed across the surf, heading to the base of the Mountain. A whiteness, blinding with brilliance, pierced the waves, and Virgil called to Dante "Make haste, make haste to bow the knew! Behold the Angel of God!". The radiance grew, and the craft beached upon Purgatory's shore. "In exitu Israel de Aegypto!", the Heavenly host cried, and from the boat a throng of souls emerged, recently hurled headlong from their earthly bodies. Around in incredulity and puzzlement they gazed. Spotting the two poets not far from they, the spirits rushed to embrace them. "If ye know, show us the way to go unto the mountain", one among them called out to Dante. "Ye believe perchance that we have knowledge of this place, but we are strangers even as yourselves", Virgil retorted. Downcast, one among them suddenly noticed the rising and falling of Dante's chest, and realisation dawned upon his breathless face. Pallid with amazement, they saw that he was still alive, and rejoiced. One moved forward to throw his arms around our pilgrim, but nay, it was not to be. Moved by the kind reception, Dante moved to embrace him too, but only through air did his arms pass. Three times they tried, but hope lay not there. Several among the shades recognise Dante, they were once men of Florence too. The one who would embrace revealed himself as Casella, a friend in life of our poet. Long had he dwelled in the middleworld, and into merry song he burst, flexing the mighty voice he once prized in life. A tear rolled down Dante's cheek at the memories relived, before a growling voice shattered the serenity. Cato spurred them on, urging them not to delay, for nightfall would be coming soon. So with fresh vigour did the ethereal party disband, and higher did they climb.

The path ahead seemed a gruelling one indeed, so steep was the embankment. Dante stuck close to his master, fearful that any slip would send him to the ranks of all around. The blood red rays of the Sun grew dazzling now, as the light flooded over the crags in the mountain. Marvelling at the old poet's agility, Dante suddenly noticed that Virgil cast no shadow in the blazing sun. "Dost thou not think me with thee, and that I guide thee?" Virgil remarked, noticing his anguish. All all too painful reminder it was for Dante, that his newfound friend and master was in fact dead. Since his mortal body long ago vanished, no more could his spirit cast a shadow, in Naples now are his last remains. "Marvel not at it more than at the Heavens", Virgil soothed the distraught Dante, for "insane is he who hopeth that our reason can traverse the illimitable way". Painfully aware that there would come a time when they  must part ways, Dante struggled on up, up and up the endless cliff. Scarcely, it seemed, could any being unequipped with wings ascend it, yet with determination did those two prevail.


After reaching something of a plateau, the two stopped; Dante for breath and Virgil for thought. Then, there on the left, another array of souls approached. As sheep they flocked, for those at the rear seemed oblivious to the matter around them, only following those in front. Timidly holding their heads low, they skulked forward, until the lead spirit, "modest in face and dignified in gait", spotted the shadow cast by Dante's form. With a start he jumped, and so too did his fellows behind, though they knew not why. "Without your asking, I confess to you this is a human body you see", Virgil called to them. By mandate of Heaven had they come this far, and the spirits bowed in recognition, beckoning the way forth.


King Manfred
Image take from the Chronicle
of Giovanni Villani
As they turned to move, however, a soft voice sounded behind. "Whoe'er thou art, thus going turn thine eyes, consider well if e'er thoun saw me in the other world". Intrigued, Dante spun around, to a haunting sight. A fair man stood yonder, with kindly face and blonde hair, one of his eyebrows split by some blow of war. His bearing was noble, no serf this was. Humbly, Dante admitted that he knew the man not. Smiling, the figure revealed the ghastly wound upon his chest, flecked with blood. "I am Manfred, grandson of the Empress Costanza; therefore, when thou returnest, I beseech thee, go to my daughter fair, the mother of Siciliy's honour and Aragon's, and the truth tell her, if aught else be told". Dante, who knew Manfred's tale well, was overcome with reverence. Fifty years earlier, Manfred, son of the Holy Roman Emperor Frederick II, faithfully obeyed his father's will in Southern Italy. It was a time when strife between the Empire and the Papacy was at its zenith, and the territorial extent of the Holy Roman Empire seemed well on its way to reclaiming the glory of its ancient namesake. At 18, his father died and rebellion was raised in the southern domains. Energetic and enthusiastic, Manfred crushed the rebellion in Naples. But Pope Innocent IV, spying an opportunity with the death of his nemesis, Frederick Stupor Mundi, demanded the surrender of Sicily from Imperial hands, intending to gift it to the son of King Henry III of England. Manfred, disgusted by the Vicar of Christ's earthly corruption, refused. Retribution arrived swiftly, a bull of excommunication. He was now a spiritual outlaw, shunned by the Catholic Church, and forbidden from entering Heaven. This was a sentence that made death seem trifling. The Pope deplored his daring to rule beyond papal permission, and his willingness to form alliances with Muslims, and raised arms against young Manfred. But the Imperial Prince was an able leader, and crushed the armies of the Papal States. Not long after, he was hailed by the Sicilians as their saviour and King. Triumphant, Manfred declared his candidacy for his father's throne, that of Holy Roman Emperor itself. The new Pope Alexander IV declared excommunication once again, rallying war against the precocious Prince. Charles of Anjou heard the Pope's call, and marched on Sicily. The two sides met at Benevento, and battle was joined. Outnumbered and overwhelmed, the Imperial forces were broken, but never would Manfred abandon the field. Alone did the Sicilian King hurl himself against the Angevin line, and with great honour his life did wane. Not content with his mere death, the Pope ordered the remains to be dug up and thrown out of the territory of the Papal States.

"Horrible my iniquities had been", Manfred bemoaned, "but infinite goodness hath such ample arms, that is receives whatever turns to it". In his final moments on the field of war, the Emperor's son had prayed to the Almighty for forgiveness. By divine law, those penitent at death, but outside the grace of the Church, must dwell here in Purgatory for thirty times the duration of their time of sin before they are permitted to move on. Serving this time now was Manfred, along with others excommunicated in recent times, and desperate to feel Heaven's light was he. But greater hope remained, for the Almighty had decreed that should any on the earthly plain mourn and pray for the spirit, hastened would his time in Purgatory be.


                                        " See now if thou hast power to make me happy,
                                             By making known unto my good Costanza
                                             How thou hast seen me, and this ban beside... "
                                                   - KING MANFRED'S PLEA


It was then that Dante, so moved by Manfred's tale, realised he had lost track of time, as the day was far advanced now. Something sadder than Inferno seemed at work here. Whereas in the Infernal Pit, men wicked at heart were condemned, here were ordinary, good people, robbed of Heaven's light, sadly delayed from the Judgement. Resenting the interference of the Pope in temporal affairs, and that Italy had never been right since a Caesar had sat upon his rightful throne, Dante was consumed with melancholy. With a start, a nearby soul exclaimed the discovery of the path to the Mountain above. The road grew on, and time could not be wasted. Weirder and more wonderful adventures lay beyond neither here nor there...

          ADOM now on Steam, a review.      Cache   Translate Page      

Originally posted on: http://kariem.net/cwilliams/archive/2015/11/17/168820.aspx

It's hard to believe that I've been playing this game for nearly 20 years.  My favorite game (ever) has just released on Steam this week.  If you like RPGs and/or Roguelike Games, you owe it to yourself to check out Ancient Domains of Mystery (ADOM) on Steam.  Since this is release week, it's on sale. 


Get It Here:   http://store.steampowered.com/app/333300

If you aren't familiar with ADOM, it's a roguelike game. Maybe you've heard of Rogue, Dwarf Fortress, Nethack, Heroic Adventure!, etc...?  It's best described as a Tactical-RPG where death is permanent and all items are randomized when a new game is created. Discovery is a huge part of a game like this, and there is plenty to discover here. Villages, Magic, Story, Questlines... ADOM has it all, and is one of the original roguelikes.

You may be thinking, how is this a roguelike... it's too pretty. It's true, ADOM has gotten a fresh coat of paint, along with some necessary engine overhauls to make it work in the Steam ecosphere, but it's still very much the same game at heart.  In fact, ASCII mode is only a couple of clicks away if that's how you roll. (Though I have to admit, the new interface is really sweet.)

I've only gotten a few games in since release yesterday, but I can attest to many, many late (all) nighters with this game.  There's a certain threshold that once you get past it, in terms of progress, you really don't want to stop, for fear of angering the RNG gods.

If you're looking for a fun, but brutal, RPG... you owe it to yourself to pick this one up.



          Ownership, Scarcity, and Economic Decision Making      Cache   Translate Page      

[Originally  published in Volume 5, No. 1 (Spring 2002) of the Quarterly Journal of Austrian Economics.]

A central theme of all schools of economics is the notion that goods are scarce. The extent of human wants and needs is sufficiently great that the means man would apply to those ends are limited, requiring that he choose among alternative actions. The purpose of this article is to call attention to a facet of scarcity that stems from this fundamental notion and that is of relevance to economic decision making, the determination of what goals to pursue, and how to attain them. This facet is the ownership of these scarce goods. The fact of ownership means that there is an additional problem faced by those who would use such goods, beyond the fact that such goods are physically unable to satisfy all conceivable uses to which they could be put. This problem is how to convince the owner, who by the very meaning of ownership is entitled to complete control over those goods, to part with those goods (so that they may be applied to other uses).

Since some owners may be more willing to part with those goods than others, the notion of how scarce some good is for a particular use cannot be answered outside the context of ownership and the valuations of property owners, making scarcity in this sense subjective as well. The existence of and need for property is a consequence of scarcity, which is further affected by the very institution to which it gives rise. However, this “problem” in a sense supplies its own solution, as ownership implies the ability to exchange, and consequently, the emergence of exchange ratios in a common unit (that is, money prices) that permit economic calculation and thus the ability to coherently compare prospective courses of action.

This article will attempt to elaborate on this idea, and applications of this notion will be made to the problems of socialism, monopoly capitalism, and business cycle theory.

Scarcity in the General Sense

We live in a world characterized by scarcity. That is, the physical amount of the things man would use to satisfy his wants and needs are limited in relation to those wants and needs.1 It is for this reason that conflicts can arise over things: if goods were so plentiful that another’s use of them would not preclude my use of them, then no disagreements could arise over their use. It is because of the possibility of such conflicts that some means of conflict resolution is needed, and this is precisely why any theory of conflict resolution—ethics—is ultimately a theory of property rights (Rothbard 1998; Hoppe 1989, 1993). When scarce goods become owned, then conflict over their use is resolved (at least in principle). These goods then become property, and as the owner of property, I am entitled to exclude others from the use of the goods manifesting themselves as property. Of course, questions as to how property may be justifiably acquired must be resolved,2 but once such questions are addressed, economic interactions between men become exchanges of property under a system delineating how such exchanges may legitimately take place.

Thus the concept of property stems from that of scarcity. This connection has long been recognized. Menger (1976, quoted in Salerno 1999) argues that

[A person’s] property is not ... an arbitrarily combined quantity of goods, but a direct reflection of his needs, an integrated whole, no essential part of which can be diminished or increased without affecting realization of the end it serves. (p. 84)

Salerno further notes that property is “a praxeological category that refers to a purposively created structure of goods that is adjusted through the operations of economizing to serve the structure of ends aimed at by an individual actor” (p. 84), the need for which (economizing) is entirely due to the fact of scarcity. Scarcity is a fundamental concept of economics and, more generally, of human action, as we confront scarcity with every action.

Unowned goods become property precisely because their use by one person means that others will be unable to use them. When a good is unowned (for example, in a state of nature), the question of acquiring it and making it one’s property is a question, as with all actions, of choosing one course of action over another. However, given a system of property rights that determines how goods may be justly acquired, interactions with others do not necessarily arise. That is, as an unowned good, no one else has any justifiable claim over it. Others may desire it or hope the prospective owner puts it to a certain use, but in attempting to obtain it, one needs, in principle, no more than one’s own labor. Cooperation with others is not necessary (though of course it may be preferable to acting alone).

Scarcity as Derived from Ownership

The case is different regarding goods that are owned. Here, interactions with others necessarily arise when nonowners seek to put the good to an alternative uses. The owner, presumably, has a just claim over the use of that good, and he alone may decide how that good is put to use. Different property rights regimes may place greater or lesser constraints over the extent of his use, but ultimately the owner determines what will happen to this good. Of course, with a system of property rights there must not only be constraints on how property is acquired, but also on how it is exchanged. Still, what determines the terms on which exchanges of property take place are the desires of property owners on both sides of an exchange.

Because of the fundamental fact of scarcity, a good can be applied to multiple ends, any one of which precludes the others from being realized. In deciding whether to homestead an unowned good (that is, apply one’s labor to acquiring the good and so become the just owner), a person must judge whether that choice will best meet his ends. He must then make a further choice as to how the good should be obtained and used. Of course, he must understand the property rules for his society, so that his actions are justifiable, but in this case the only barriers due to scarcity that he faces are the facts that by homesteading the good, he cannot do something else, and that by using the good in one way he cannot use it in some other way.

He of course faces these same difficulties when deciding whether to acquire an owned good. However, now he faces an additional problem: namely, how to obtain access to property from which he is forbidden, absent the owner’s consent. The scarcity he now faces is distinct from the fundamental or general scarcity that characterizes our world. For under a private property regime, the owner alone decides how available an owned good will be for various purposes. This scarcity stemming from ownership holds across all property. For to obtain someone else’s property, I must engage in some kind of exchange with that owner, and this presumably will involve an exchange of property. If, say, owners of beer are demanding $20 a bottle for their product, then if I so desire beer that I will pay this price in money property, my money property likewise becomes scarce to me and I must be quite careful in how I apply it elsewhere. On the other hand, with money prices, I am at least able to coherently apprehend scarcity in this sense, as there exists numerical ratios that allow me to compare prospective actions to anticipated outcomes.

Thus we can see that goods can be considered scarce not only on the basis of the limits of their physical supply relative to wants, but also on the basis of the desires of the owners of those goods. The need for and existence of property stems from a fundamental fact of reality regarding objects as goods—namely, scarcity. However, once a good becomes property, there is a further aspect of scarcity that must be considered, and this aspect stems from ownership. Because of scarcity in the fundamental sense, one is forced to make choices. An action made in one endeavor is an action that cannot be made in another. A ton of steel used to make cars cannot be used to make railroad tracks.

Because of scarcity due to ownership, one is forced to take something else into consideration: how to persuade the owner of the good in question to part with it, and this is distinct from the notion of scarcity as reflecting a limited physical supply relative to wants (although, of course, it is ultimately dependent on this fact). Now, the question is not only whether to use steel to make cars versus railroad tracks, but how to obtain the necessary steel from the person who owns it. Depending on the relative ease with which this can be done (that is, how much other property must be given in exchange for this steel), one application might be chosen over the other, and it is possible that neither will be feasible. The owner may be so insistent on keeping his property that the only price (in terms of money property) that will change his mind is sufficiently high for an entrepreneur to judge that these goods cannot be profitably applied anywhere. Or, the owner might be sufficiently generous that an entrepreneur will judge a wide range of projects to be feasible. In either case, the good in question is scarce to the extent that the owner wants it scarce.

Property is a means for solving one problem: the fact that prospective means in the physical world are of insufficient supply to meet all our ends, so conflicts with others may arise as a result. Property rights in these means establish boundaries which exclude others from using these means, and so serve as a way of resolving conflicts over them. (Of course, any property rights system, including systems based on the violation of such rights, for example, the State, is only effective to the extent that people are willing to abide by it.) In solving one problem—namely, disagreement over (scarce) goods in a state of nature—property creates another problem: the fact that an owner must now be persuaded to part with his property if one desires to apply that good to some end. However, as a property rights system must provide some way of exchanging validly owned goods, the system permits a solution to this problem: specifically, economic calculation. The amount of property one must surrender to acquire some other property, deemed more important to satisfying one’s needs, can be determined in terms of money prices. One can calculate whether the anticipated proceeds from some course of action will exceed the costs required to presumably bring that action about.

So under a system of property rights, economic decision making must take scarcity into account, not only in the usual sense of choosing which wants are to be satisfied with a finite physical supply, but also in the sense that how available a good is depends also on the circumstances arising from that particular good being owned. When a good is owned (and on the free market, ownership implies not just control but the ability to exchange), the notion of a quantifiable amount of property needed to acquire that good comes into existence. This in turn leads to numerical exchange ratios (prices), which are the basis of economic calculation for comparing prospective gains and costs. Whether a particular good will be scarce or plentiful relative to a potential use then depends on how much property that good’s owner demands for it; the question of how to “best” produce something cannot be answered outside the framework of a property rights system for determining what factors are available (attainable) for its production. Indeed, the availability of factors in an economic sense plays a role in determining what should be produced in the first place.

Implications for Economic Decision Making

Under a private property regime, there is a duality: On the one hand, consumers, as property owners, determine what is produced to the extent that producers whose products are unwanted by consumers will soon find themselves out of business. On the other hand, producers, as property owners, determine what is consumed to the extent that they decide to allocate their property to certain production processes. If the owner of some factor of production will not commit that factor to some line of production, those products will not be produced and, hence, not consumed. He may come to regret his decision, but that can only be revealed in the future, not now. The wishes of consumers and the “knowledge” of other entrepreneurs are irrelevant. As Rothbard (1993, p. 561–66) argues, the concept of “consumer sovereignty,” if used in any but the above sense, is false.

Attention here must be drawn to the aspect of scarcity that derives from the specific fact of ownership, as opposed to the more general condition that the physical supply of a good is insufficient to meet all wants regarding that good. To be sure, we live in a world where goods exist only in finite physical amounts, so that not all wants can be satisfied. However, a subset of this more general form of scarcity is the scarcity that depends on the subjective valuations and desires of property owners. Whether a good is scarce or plentiful from this standpoint depends on the wishes of the owner(s) of that good.3 A few pounds of wheat, for example, may be more plentiful than a ton of wheat, if the owners in the former case are extremely generous with their property while the owners in the latter case are extremely covetous of theirs. It is this component of scarcity, and not only the general fact of physical scarcity relative to wants, which is relevant for economic decision making. Even to acquire an unowned good from a state of nature requires the concept of self-ownership, such that one can compare the amount of property one would receive by acquiring the good oneself or working in a different line of production. (This leaves aside issues of alienability in ones body compared with physical objects; see Kinsella 1999.)

Under a capitalist system, it is largely irrelevant who owns what.4 More precisely, the functioning of a market does not depend on particular ownership, only on the fact of ownership. As a consumer of beer, it may matter quite a bit to me that the owners of factors that could produce beer are unwilling to devote their resources to such production, thus yielding less beer than (technically) possible. However, with unfettered private property rights (such that valid exchanges are unhindered), there will be no situations of surplus or shortage, where actors cannot adjust prices and where there are willing sellers and buyers, but no willing buyers and sellers, respectively. (Markets “clear,” in other words.5) It is only important that someone owns a factor of production. In that case, one may compare the anticipated revenues (in terms of money property) from an action with the costs (also in terms of money property) of bringing that action about. Once one has formed a judgment as to how much property consumers will give for some product, one can calculate how much property (in the same units) one can afford to give to acquire the means judged appropriate to produce that good. Regardless of whether a particular factor is owned by a miser or a freewheeling sort, exchange ratios result that permit the meaningful comparison of various actions on the market.

Factors of production are valuable because the output they produce is valuable. But because the outputs of production are subjectively valued, it is not possible to compare outputs with potential inputs on the basis of value. However, under a system of private property in the means of production, numerical exchange ratios (prices) exist which permit precisely this comparison (that is, economic calculation). Whether a factor owner is stingy or generous (so that the price of his factor is “high” or “low”) is irrelevant to the fact that economic calculation is the tool of entrepreneurs who must always first form a judgment about the future. Whatever “knowledge” may be “embedded” in the prices in those two different cases in no way changes the fact that, in either case, the factor in question can only be applied to production if an entrepreneur judges that it will be profitable, and if he can obtain property sufficient enough to acquire it (Hülsmann 1997). Indeed, the question of whether he can afford this factor determines the profitability of that factor in any given venture. The scarcity induced by ownership is always addressable by economic calculation.

The question of what goods to produce cannot be answered separately from the question of how scarce the factors needed to produce that good are. However, this scarcity is dependent on the ownership of those goods, and not simply on the fact that such resources exist in physically finite amounts. Thus one can never speak of value scales as such for the purposes of economic planning. One must always speak in terms of how much (anticipated) property consumers are willing to give in exchange for those goods, which, when combined with the amount of property (referred to a common unit) needed to obtain the means for producing those goods, enables one to decide what is to be produced for consumption.6 Value scales of consumers are only part of the problem. If a particular factor owner will not surrender his property for less than what other entrepreneurs think it can yield in some line of production, then that factor will not be used in such a way, regardless of consumer wishes (or competing entrepreneurs’ knowledge thereof).7

Predecessors

The notion that the scarcity of a good depends on the ownership of that good is not entirely new. Indeed, an early economist of Austrian bent, Bastiat (1966b, chap. 1), spoke of the subjectivity of scarcity (and its flip side, abundance) when he noted that people have different attitudes toward scarcity depending on what side of a transaction they are on. In fact, property played a key role in his thought. Consider the following passage from Bastiat (1966a, p. 228):

What I now say, what I declare with conviction as an absolute certainty in my own mind, is this: Yes, there is constant interaction between private property and the communal domain. ... But the second assertion, amplified and exploited by the socialists, is even more dangerously erroneous; for this interaction does not cause any part of the communal domain to be appropriated into the domain of private property, but, on the contrary, constantly extends the former at the expense of the latter. Private property, inherently just and legitimate, because it always is proportional to services, tends to convert onerous utility into gratuitous utility. It is the spur that impels the human intellect to realize the latent potential of the forces of Nature. It attacks, to its own profit admittedly, the obstacles that stand in the way of gratuitous utility. And when the obstacle is surmounted to any degree, we find that it results in corresponding benefit to all. Then, tirelessly, property attacks new obstacles, and this process continues with never an interruption, steadily raising the standard of living, bringing the great family of man nearer and nearer the goals of community and equality.

There are probably a number of ways to interpret this passage, but its emphasis on the centrality of property in human society is clear. Bastiat clearly recognizes the role property plays as a means toward our ends. However, one can discern (at least, with a broad reading) elements of the role of economic calculation here. For by permitting exchange ratios (Bastiat elsewhere speaks of the necessity of exchange for determining value), individual ownership of property allows all others in society to appraise such property as means for meeting their ends, whereas such an appraisal would be impossible without property. The means available to man without economic calculation are of extremely limited scope; private property enabling such calculation broadens this scope enormously.

Among modern Austrians, it is Rothbard who comes closest to calling explicit attention to this concept in his discussion of monopoly prices (Rothbard 1993, chap. 10). Here, Rothbard notes that the notion of “restrictionist” production (a charge frequently leveled against entrepreneurs in support of antitrust policies) makes no sense on a free market, as the fact of scarcity means that one always restricts some production by the simple fact of pursuing one course of action over another. According to Rothbard,

In the real world of scarce resources in relation to possible ends, all production involves choice and the allocation of factors to serve the most highly valued ends. In short, the production of any product is necessarily always “restricted.” Such “restriction” follows simply from the universal scarcity of factors and the diminishing marginal utility of any one product. But then it is absurd to speak of “restriction” at all.

And in his discussion of the concept of “consumer sovereignty” (pp. 561–66), Rothbard notes the dual role all men play as both consumers and producers, and that the proper conception is one of self-sovereignty. The notion that producers serve consumers is true in the sense that producers must make things that consumers want, otherwise they will go out of business. However, it is false in a literal sense, and certainly unjustifiable in an ethical sense.

In the context of a different controversy of relevance, namely the socialist calculation debate, Rothbard (1991) quotes Professor Georg Halm:

It is true that the central authority would know quite well how many capital goods of a given kind it possessed or could procure....; it would know the capacity of the existing plant in the various branches of production; but it would not know how scarce capital was. For the scarcity of the means of production must always be related to the demand for them, whose fluctuations give rise to variations in the value of the good in question.

It can only be added to this insightful statement that “demand” must be understood to include reservation demand, the amount that sellers will withhold from the market (see Rothbard 1993, p. 118). But of course, something can only be withheld on an unhampered market if it is validly owned, so we see again the key role ownership plays in the decision making of all market participants, both of existing owners and prospective owners (that is, nonowners). The scarcity of a factor of production will depend not only on the demand for the products it can produce, but also on the judgments and valuations of the factor owner regarding its use.

The key point, the explication of which has been the objective of this here, is that restriction and sovereignty on the market stems from ownership, both in the sense of producers as owners of themselves, and as owners of the factors of production which they alone may decide how to best dispense with. In this case, scarcity of both consumer and producer goods is derived from the judgment of property owners. While scarcity is a fundamental fact of our existence, scarcity on that subset of existence, the market, is entirely dependent on ownership. If one wishes to attack a producer on the grounds that he makes his goods scarce, then one must do so on ethical grounds, for by granting him control over these goods, one grants the notion of their availability for production to be a question for him to decide. One cannot speak of consumer goods being scarce without reference to the scarcity of the goods needed to produce them, and this scarcity on the market must ultimately be considered in terms of the ownership of those factors.

We will use the term catallactic scarcity to refer to this notion of scarcity that derives from a good being owned, in distinction from the more general fact of scarcity, which we will term physical scarcity. Of course, physical scarcity is understood to have an economic component of its own, specifically the limitation of means relative to ends. However, we make the distinction to call attention to the ownership-dependent aspects of scarcity. By understanding catallactic scarcity as inseparable from ownership, we can turn attention to applying this concept to several current debates in Austrian economics.

Application I: Economic Calculation and Socialism

The comparison of prospective gains with potential costs as a criterion of economic decision making has been referred to as economic calculation (Mises 1998, chap. 12). It was Mises who put forward the argument over seventy years ago that economic calculation is impossible under socialism, and that such an economic system is therefore not rational (Mises 1990; 1998, chap. 26). There has recently been a debate within the Austrian School over what, precisely, this argument means, with some researchers taking the position that the argument refers to the absence of private property, such that exchange ratios permitting computation of profit and loss are impossible (for example, Herbener 1991; Salerno 1993; Hoppe 1996); others interpret it as meaning that information conveyed by prices does not exist under socialism, such that opportunities for profit go unrevealed (for example, Kirzner 1996 and Horwitz 1998). These two camps may be called, respectively, “Misesian” and “Hayekian.”8

It is not the purpose here to enter into this debate. However, some support will be given for the Misesian framing of the argument by highlighting the centrality of privately owned property to economic decision making, and we will now turn to this topic.

Under socialism, of course, there is no private ownership of the means of production. Thus, the notion of scarcity in an economic sense has no meaning in such a system. A socialist planner may have complete knowledge of the physical amounts available to him, and all the ways to use them, but this is irrelevant for the purposes of economic planning. For this, he must have some knowledge of a factor’s catallactic scarcity, but this is entirely dependent on that factor being owned (so that exchange ratios may be formed). This “knowledge,” however, does not refer to some physico-chemical property of the good that could be “conveyed” to him through a price system. Rather, this knowledge refers to no more than being able to determine how much property he must give to acquire the good, which will then constrain what kind of consumer goods he can create with it. Under different patterns of ownership, this kind of catallactic scarcity will change, so there is in fact nothing objective the planner can know about. But when the factor is owned, prices for economic calculation can always be formed. Without any notion of catallactic scarcity of the means of production (which depends on ownership, not knowledge9), there can be no notion of what consumer goods are economically feasible.

What does not exist without private property (however incompletely attenuated) is a means for objectively comparing different courses of action, given a judgment about the future. At most, prices inform about how much property must be given now to acquire a particular factor of production. They tell nothing about how to use that factor or whether the future will prove some such use fruitful or not. Entrepreneurial judgment is required for this, and if some factor owner will not surrender his property for less than an entrepreneur thinks its products can be sold for, that factor will not be so used. It is ownership, not knowledge, that determines the status of the factor (Hülsmann 1997).

Thus, in a socialist economy, it is not enough to know (however completely) available physical amounts of resources and technologies for combining them along with consumer value scales. To speak of an action being economically “efficient” or rational requires being able to meaningfully compare inputs and outputs. One must be able to quantify what consumers will be willing to give in return for the outputs of production, and similarly relate the inputs of production to the same “standard.” However, it is clear that no such thing can be done in a socialist state, where there can be no ownership in the means of production, and so notions like catallactic scarcity (and resulting exchange ratios in terms of other property) are meaningless. It makes no sense to speak of how much property can be given in exchange for socialized factors of production, so it likewise makes no sense to speak of what products should be produced for consumption, as the ability to consume depends on the ability to produce. Knowing consumer preferences is of no use in solving this problem.

Socialism thus severs the duality between consumption and production, and this is its fatal flaw, not an absence of knowledge that could be conveyed by prices. (The equations of neoclassical economics explicitly make this dichotomy and consider only the physical scarcity of resources for production, and so are of no use for economic planning, even apart from knowledge problems and their static nature.10) To be sure, it has never been demonstrated how this transmission of knowledge through prices supposedly occurs, or exactly what information, “tacit” or otherwise, is contained in prices, but the point is that under a private property system, it is irrelevant whether someone “knows” of great, unmet demand toward which some factor of production can be applied. On the free market, such a factor is presumably owned, and unless that owner is willing to part with his property (which requires an exchange of other property), that factor cannot be applied to that production process, regardless of how much knowledge one possesses of alternative uses for it.

Also, one wonders where the importance of “decentralized” knowledge lies (see Hoppe 1996). For ownership is both centralized and decentralized: centralized in the fact that one and only one person controls access to some good (even when the good is jointly owned, different people own different shares), and decentralized in the fact that under a private property regime (either free or partly free), anyone can attempt to acquire the good by offering sufficient property in exchange. Indeed, at what stage does “economic knowledge” become decentralized? When, say, ownership of some physical supply is more or less evenly distributed? Why not when a single person owns 99 percent of a good? In either case, prospective actions can be coherently evaluated (“appraised”) via economic calculation. It is the existence of markets that permits economic calculation, not the decentralization of knowledge, economic or otherwise.

One may concede, however unlikely, that a socialist planning board may have complete knowledge of resources, technologies, and tastes, and may be able to assemble factors to produce some list of desired goods. However, this output has no economic meaning because there is no notion of exchanging one state of affairs for another, of sacrificing consumption to production and vice versa. One may contend that the central planning board could not “know” whether a particular allocation of resources is economically efficient, or whether they are meeting some needs at the expense of other, more urgent needs. However, these objections only make sense within the context of ownership of the goods and resources in question. However, it is pointless to exchange property for production purposes based on subjective valuations, and economic calculation with market prices (exchange ratios) permits the subjective valuations of consumer goods to be indirectly imputed to producer goods. But again, it is ownership and not knowledge that is central to this process, for only ownership enables the exchange ratios necessary for this comparison process to come into being.

What are economically wasteful inputs under one realization of private property rights may be profitable under another realization, depending on the desires of property owners, both from the point of view of producers as well as consumers. Correspondingly, a different set of outputs (consumer goods) will be economically rational or irrational, depending on these circumstances. Under such a system, it only makes sense to speak of less urgent needs being met if an entrepreneur obtains a loss on his venture. With different patterns of ownership, that venture may well prove profitable, in which case one would say he has met urgent needs. One cannot say, for example, that it is always economically wasteful to build a car with gold. It is only under current conditions (of ownership, valuations, etc.) that such an activity is wasteful. Under different conditions, it may well be profitable.

So, the problem with socialism is not that the central planning board will not know how to best meet given ends. It is that without the notion of privately owned means of production (and hence catallactic scarcity of those means), the notion of what ends are appropriate at all makes no sense. One may postulate a “market” for consumer goods in a socialist state, with “prices” for these goods. However, these prices have no relation whatsoever to their counterparts in a capitalist state, even if numerically they should happen to be the same. For the prices in a capitalist system imply an amount of property that can be given in exchange for that good. In a capitalist system, this (money) property encompasses consumer as well as producer goods. Obviously, whatever property can be obtained in a socialist economy must exclude producer goods, so the notion of “prices” as exchange ratios, even among consumer goods, is severely restricted if not meaningless. 

Application II: Monopoly Capitalism

Of course, it may be objected that, even under socialism, catallactic scarcity also exists, as the central planning board does in fact own the means of production in the society under its control. However, this is better characterized as controlling these factors, as ownership suggests that one can divest oneself of property, and of course this cannot happen under socialism (if the system is to remain socialistic). A contrast may be made with the situation of monopolies under capitalism. Under capitalism, a person may be the sole owner of some particular factor or class of factors. In principle, however, one can always offer such a person property in exchange for these factors, so there is a notion of scarcity in the sense of what uses these factors can be profitably put to, relative to what must be used to first acquire them. Such a situation cannot, even in principle, occur under socialism. Indeed, we again see the duality of exchange that exists under a private property system. To own something means that someone else must surrender a certain amount of property in order to become the owner. How much property depends on the valuations of the prospective exchangers. Even a “monopolist” can in principle be persuaded to part with his goods, and an entrepreneur can at least attempt to calculate how much this will take. Such an endeavor may prove fruitless, but it is at least possible. (Likewise, if no one has any interest in or anticipates any profitable use of the monopolist’s goods, then the fact that he is sole possessor poses no problem for entrepreneurs.)

So even an extremely restrictive monopolist faces a categorically different situation than the director of the central planning board. The monopolist can in principle transfer ownership (for a price), while the director cannot. The extent to which the monopolist is willing to do so determines the scarcity (economic) of his factors, and thus what is feasible to produce for consumption. Whether the director would be generous or covetous is irrelevant; neither characteristic changes the fact that he cannot dispose of these goods, so attaching economic significance to them is impossible (or, better, meaningless), unlike under a private property system. Furthermore, from an economic perspective, the monopolist, as an owner, behaves no differently if he restricts use of his factors or applies them. In either case, his subjective valuations and judgment of how best to satisfy himself drives his actions. This aspect of economic behavior, either committing or withholding resources, is the dual part of every economic action under private property. For the director, it makes absolutely no sense to speak of him withholding resources. For what end? For the director, he must apply these resources, so the notion of catallactic scarcity which implies the need to conserve resources is absent. Again, the duality between production and consumption is severed under socialism.

Even if an entrepreneur should happen to come into ownership of all the means of production in some society, his position is quite different from that of the director of the central planning board under socialism. The monopolist can always assign economic significance to his property by entertaining bids from others, and of course he can accept those offers. In a capitalist society, money prices encompass both consumer and producer goods. For the central planner, it is absurd to think he can receive bids for the property under his control. He cannot exchange his property, so any attempts by him to “play” market are just that: meaningless games.11

Should the monopolist actually refuse all offers, he can still in principle accept them at any time. And in fact it is his stance that determines the notion of catallactic scarcity in his society. For assuming he came about his goods justly (that is, mixed his labor with unowned land or acquired, through voluntary exchange with others, property likewise created (Hoppe 1989, 1993; Rothbard 1998), then there can be nothing wrong in an ethical sense with him hoarding all of his goods. (Of course, socialism violates the “natural” property rights of others, and this alone would disqualify socialism as a justifiable system, but this is a separate issue.) Whether his hoarding, which would presumably lead to great suffering for others, is wrong in a moral sense is an entirely different matter.  In this case, the scarcity in society is quite extreme—one might say far “greater” than the mere fact of limited physical amounts.

The director of the central planning board is in no such position. The notion of him accepting or refusing an offer for his property (so that numerical exchange ratios for economic calculation could be formed) is absent under socialism. Any bid he could receive would be meaningless, for he cannot surrender any factor of production. Under capitalism, the bids made to factor owners, be they monopolists or not, permit the evaluation of prospective actions. That is, prospective gains can be meaningfully compared with costs because a common unit of comparison exists. No such common unit exists under socialism. Even a monopolist can coherently compare the gains from applying a factor to production himself or selling it to someone else. The socialist director cannot sell a factor. Single ownership of a good does not abolish markets for that good, so prices can still be formed. Coercive socialism, however, does abolish markets.

Application III: Business Cycle Theory

As a further, albeit brief, application of the concept of catallactic scarcity as determined by ownership, consider Austrian business cycle theory. The details of this theory need not be expanded upon here, and some familiarity will be assumed (for example, Rothbard 1983; Mises 1998, chap. 20). The main thrust of the theory is that economic downturns (“recessions”) are attributable to the fact that credit inflation distorts the structure of production, which depends on the time preferences of consumers (their willingness to forego current consumption in favor of future consumption). Thus, “artificially” low interest rates give rise to a (lengthened) structure of production inconsistent with the (unchanged) time preferences of consumers, necessitating at some point a restoration of the original structure (a boom-to-bust process).

Certain aspects of this theory have been criticized by Hülsmann (1998), in particular the notion that downturns are the consequence of credit inflation. (Hülsmann accepts the descriptive details of the nature, but not the cause, of the cycle as laid out by Austrian business cycle theory.) Among other points, he argues that inflation, like any other unanticipated change, can be correctly forecast by entrepreneurs, so there is no reason to presume that they will be so misled. (This is actually, in one form or another, a common critique of the theory.) Austrian business cycle theory in its usual form is at best, then, a contingent theory of economic downturns. Instead, he argues for an essentialist rendition of Austrian business cycle theory, wherein error is not a consequence of past conditions (no such consistent theory is possible), but rather is inherent in the system of banking that exists today throughout the Western world (that is, fractional reserve banking, the lending out of demand deposits in excess of reserves).

Some support will be given here for Hülsmann’s argument. First, it should be noted that, on a free market, it is consumer time preferences that determine the length of the structure of production. The more consumers are willing to save (that is, forego current consumption in favor of future consumption), the more far-removed or “roundabout” production processes can be relative to the finished product.12 That is, the scarcity of capital goods in an economic sense is determined by ownership, namely the willingness of consumers to exchange their current property for future claims to property. This property can then become owned by entrepreneurs, who can assemble a structure of production as described above (that is, via judgments and economic calculation). Whether the consumers directly give their property to entrepreneurs or (more likely) use banks as an intermediary is irrelevant. The key point is that the availability of capital goods again depends on private property (ownership).

The situation is quite different under a system of fractional reserve banking. Here it is not property and the subjective valuations of its owners that determine scarcity (in the economic sense) and drive production processes. Rather, it is the ability of banks to create titles to property not backed up by actual property.13 That is, catallactic scarcity, which depends on the ownership of property, is not the determinant of production (and thus, ultimately, consumption). Instead, the catallactic scarcity of capital goods is inherently misrepresented under this system, as the bankers do not surrender their own property in exchange but rather create “false” property, claims to property divorced from existing property. It thus appears that more property is available for production than actually exists, and here is the nature of the crisis as laid out by Austrian business cycle theory—the mismatch between consumer time preferences and entrepreneurial judgments thereof.14

Indeed, one may refer to this situation as a “political discovery process,” as distinct from a fallacious “price” discovery (Hülsmann 2000), since the availability of capital is not determined by the value judgments with property of individual owners, but by the ability of bankers to discover how much they can jointly issue titles to property in excess of actual, existing property. That is, the scarcity of capital is not determined by the subjective valuations of the owners of capital, whether they are generous or greedy with their property. Rather, the amount of capital is determined by the actions of others—in this case, other bankers. The more other bankers expand their lending beyond reserves, the greater latitude any other banker has for doing the same. This situation does not result when considering individual property owners, where the decision to make property available is entirely up to the individual owner. In fact, the entire concept of property at all is distorted under fractional reserve banking, for in this case what constitutes “property” is dependent on the will of the bankers to create something out of nothing. Under a true property regime, one cannot create something out of nothing, regardless of the intensity of one’s desires. This is not true under fractional reserve banking, where the only constraint on any individual bankers desires is the extent to which other banker’s are likewise willing to inflate.

Thus the notion of scarcity of capital goods (and the resultant production structure based thereon) is completely blurred under fractional reserve banking, and it is the nature of the system that is the ultimate source of the error (malinvestments) and that Austrian business cycle theory attempts to explain. To be sure, the concept of catallactic scarcity is not completely obliterated, as it is under full-blown socialism. It remains the case, though, that the scarcity of capital is falsely represented under fractional reserve banking.

Conclusion

To conclude and summarize, the notion of scarcity of a particular good for economic purposes must include reference to the ownership of that good, and not just the limited physical amount of that good relative to wants. It is scarcity in this economic sense (that is, the willingness of the owner of some good to exchange it for something else) that is of central importance to economic decision making (calculation, comparing anticipated revenues with prospective costs in a common denominator), both in deciding how to produce something, as well as what to produce. One cannot hope to reproduce the results of an unhampered market with systems that destroy the central characteristic of that market. Various forms of violent intervention in the market abolish this crucial notion of scarcity, either completely, as under socialism, or partially, as under fractional reserve banking, with results that are, at best, arbitrary from the point of view of consumers. In actuality, of course, the realized results have been utterly disastrous.

It is not a question of “knowing” how valuable ones actions can be, and learning of this through the price system. The point is that action within society is always action within a system of property rights, restricted or unrestricted to some degree. Given constraints on our actions as imposed by such a system, the question becomes, what must one do to attain one’s goals? In a system of property rights, one must exchange property for property, based on judgments of the future. Only under a system of property rights can one quantify and compare in a common unit gains relative to losses (comparison of procedures for producing subjectively valued goods being otherwise impossible), and only under a system of unfettered property rights is the duality between consumption and production preserved. That is, only then are there objective constraints on both what is produced and consumed. Social democracy and state capitalism as currently exist in the Western world blur this duality, while complete socialism demolishes it. 

  • 1. Air, for example, is physically of finite supply, but no wants are currently left unmet on account of this. Thus, air cannot qualify as an economic good and in this sense is of “unlimited” supply. 
  • 2. See the preceding references. Kinsella (1996) provides an overview of other such recent work. 
  • 3. Of course, if nobody else wants the good in question, then from the point of view of these others, the good is quite plentiful. However, to acquire an owned good requires the consent of the owner, and his desires will determine how scarce the good is for use by others.
  • 4. Provided, of course, that unowned goods may be homesteaded (that is, unowned goods can become property), and that one can expect such rights to be respected over time.
  • 5. A “common-sense” equilibrium, as opposed to the general disequilibrium case of unmet desires at any given time, see Gordon (1995).
  • 6. In fact, the price of any good depends both on the demand and supply of it, so one can never speak of prices for consumer goods without reference to prices for producer goods. For a discussion of price formation on the market, see Rothbard (1993, chaps. 2 and 3).
  • 7. Likewise, if factor owners are unable to ask for as much property as they would like to for their products (as is the case under, say, price controls), then they will not do so, and furthermore, prospective buyers of those factors will deem them more plentiful than they actually are. This is another example of the illusions fostered by the property rights violations of the State; see Hülsmann (1998).
  • 8. The neoclassicist position seems to be sympathetic to the Hayekian interpretation, see Yeager (1994). See also, among others, Hülsmann (1997) for a detailed analysis of these issues.
  • 9. Property and knowledge are not the same thing, and unlike property, knowledge itself can never be scarce in any sense. That I have an idea in no way precludes someone else from having that idea, while ownership arising from scarcity does imply such exclusion (Kinsella 2001).
  • 10. All of these equations in their various guises essentially try to “maximize” utility subject to physical and technological constraints on available resources. Even granting that, with complete knowledge and perfect foresight, a planner could allocate resources for a given period based on these equations, the question of how much of his available resources he should hold in reserve for future consumption cannot be so addressed. At some point a planner must stop cannibalizing an existing capital structure and at the very least maintain that structure, so capital goods must be included in his value scale. However, it is nonsense to include indirectly valued means among his directly valued ends. Even means must be economized, but unlike ends, recourse to their utility is futile for doing so. They only have utility because of the (direct) utility of the ends they produce, but it is only the utility of ends that one may appraise, in terms of the wants they remove. Only monetary prices permit the appraisal of both means and ends. The choice of how to “model” available means in these equations is arbitrary at best, if not absurd (for example, modeling capital “growth” like some sort of natural phenomenon). Thus, as Salerno (1990, p. 56) noted, “[s]ocialism will have particularly devastating effects on the economy’s capital structure.”
  • 11. More generally, as states may be considered territorial monopolists of judicial and protective services, one can make a distinction between privately owned governments, such as monarchies, which can engage in economic calculation, and publicly owned (“caretaker”) governments, such as democracies, which cannot. For more on this distinction, see Hoppe (1999).
  • 12. See Rothbard (1993, chap. 8) for a more detailed discussion of this process.
  • 13. See Hoppe et al. (1998) for more on this point, as well as the purely juridical nature of fractional reserve banking.
  • 14. To use Hülsmann’s (1998) term, the illusion of more property is created by fractional reserve banking. More generally, as an inherently aggressive institution, the State relies on many other illusions to continue its existence, for example, the illusion that people can remain owners of themselves and their property while granting the State the ability to unilaterally tax, jail, etc.

          Prof Stephen Hawking commemorated on new 50p coin      Cache   Translate Page      

 

Prof Stephen Hawking has been honoured on a new 50p coin inspired by his pioneering work on black holes.

The physicist died last year at the age of 76, having become one of the most renowned leaders in his field.

He joins an elite group of scientists to have appeared on coins, including Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin.

Designer Edwina Ellis said: "I wanted to fit a big black hole on the tiny coin and wish he was still here chortling at the thought."

 

 

She said she wanted to reflect the way he "made difficult subjects accessible, engaging and relatable", in particular on black holes.

Prof Hawking's daughter Lucy visited the Royal Mint with her brother Tim to see the coins.

She said: "It is a great privilege to be featured on a coin and I hope my father would be pleased to be alongside Sir Isaac Newton and Charles Darwin as scientists who have made it on to money."

Prof Hawking explained black holes in his best-selling book A Brief History Of Time.

He once told the BBC he thought his discovery that black holes were not entirely black would be his "greatest achievement".

  曼谷其实没啥景点,所以大部分人过来也都是逛逛逛~   商场主要集中在暹罗广场附近,坐地铁到Siam站即可。一出地铁就可看到Siam系列的三个商场,Siam Paragon,Siam Center和Siam Discovery。Paragon比较正统,空间很大,各种档次的品牌都有,还卖阿斯顿马丁哦。   负一层类似高配版的大食代,人很多,吃的看着也都不错。   个人更喜欢center和discovery,商场设计很有趣,很多好玩的东西,不过如果只为了买东西就可能没啥好买的。   从地铁站往北走有个MBK,和Tokyo department在一起,都不是很大,里面摆设也不好。不过MBK里面有Lets relax可以按摩,门口也有热闹的集市。   Siam地铁站往四面佛方向走也都是商场。zen和central world连在一起,都超级大,啥牌子都有,饮食也很多,逛一天也逛不完。不过商店设计和品牌跟国内区别不大。   四面佛后面和对面也有商场,都比较小,不太值得去了。   四面佛附近还有一家叫CENTRAL EMBASSY,,非常非常空旷,里面全是大牌子,想买奢侈品的可以去看看。   Terminal 21如果有时间也可以去走走,整个商场装修的像机场一样,连前台也是空乘的打扮。每一层的装修都是按照这个国家城市的特色而设计的。衣服没啥牌子都是都还挺好看且便宜,吃饭的地方也挺多。乘坐BTS到Asok站即可。

by Niceto R. Luque, Francisco Naveros, Richard R. Carrillo, Eduardo Ros, Angelo Arleo Cerebellar Purkinje cells mediate accurate eye movement coordination. However, it remains unclear how oculomotor adaptation depends on the interplay between the characteristic Purkinje cell response patterns, namely tonic, bursting, and spike pauses.

DiscoVery #2: Stelvio Cipriani Cult Soundtracks The New Noise - dischi e band irregolari da segnare in agenda

Diplomato in pianoforte e composizione musicale, Stelvio Cipriani è stato autore di centinaia di colonne sonore per film di genere. Si trattava di prodotti forse un po’ naif, se non “artigianali”, che ricevettero critiche poco generose, ma che trionfarono al botteghino e che oggi sono diventati di culto. Western, thriller, poliziotteschi, horror ed erotici. Eppure...

SHOUT

Bestselling author Laurie Halse Anderson is known for the unflinching way she writes about, and advocates for, survivors of sexual assault. Now, inspired by her fans and enraged by how little in our culture has changed since her groundbreaking novel Speak was first published twenty years ago, she has written a poetry memoir that is as vulnerable as it is rallying, as timely as it is timeless. In free verse, Anderson shares reflections, rants, and calls to action woven between deeply personal stories from her life that she's never written about before. Searing and soul-searching, this important memoir is a denouncement of our society's failures and a love letter to all the people with the courage to say #MeToo and #TimesUp, whether aloud, online, or only in their own hearts. Shout speaks truth to power in a loud, clear voice-- and once you hear it, it is impossible to ignore.

Invisible Women: Data Bias in a World Designed for Men

Data is fundamental to the modern world. From economic development, to healthcare, to education and public policy, we rely on numbers to allocate resources and make crucial decisions. But because so much data fails to take into account gender, because it treats men as the default and women as atypical, bias and discrimination are baked into our systems. And women pay tremendous costs for this bias, in time, money, and often with their lives.

Celebrated feminist advocate Caroline Criado Perez investigates the shocking root cause of gender inequality and research in Invisible Women​, diving into women’s lives at home, the workplace, the public square, the doctor’s office, and more. Built on hundreds of studies in the US, the UK, and around the world, and written with energy, wit, and sparkling intelligence, this is a groundbreaking, unforgettable exposé that will change the way you look at the world.




The Trial of Lizzie Borden

The Trial of Lizzie Borden tells the true story of one of the most sensational murder trials in American history. When Andrew and Abby Borden were brutally hacked to death in Fall River, Massachusetts, in August 1892, the arrest of the couple’s younger daughter Lizzie turned the case into international news and her trial into a spectacle unparalleled in American history. Reporters flocked to the scene. Well-known columnists took up conspicuous seats in the courtroom. The defendant was relentlessly scrutinized for signs of guilt or innocence. Everyone—rich and poor, suffragists and social conservatives, legal scholars and laypeople—had an opinion about Lizzie Borden’s guilt or innocence. Was she a cold-blooded murderess or an unjustly persecuted lady? Did she or didn’t she?

The popular fascination with the Borden murders and its central enigmatic character has endured for more than one hundred years. Immortalized in rhyme, told and retold in every conceivable genre, the murders have secured a place in the American pantheon of mythic horror, but one typically wrenched from its historical moment. In contrast, Cara Robertson explores the stories Lizzie Borden’s culture wanted and expected to hear and how those stories influenced the debate inside and outside of the courtroom. Based on transcripts of the Borden legal proceedings, contemporary newspaper accounts, unpublished local accounts, and recently unearthed letters from Lizzie herself, The Trial of Lizzie Borden offers a window onto America in the Gilded Age, showcasing its most deeply held convictions and its most troubling social anxieties.




The Bird King

G. Willow Wilson’s debut novel Alif the Unseen was an NPR and Washington Post Best Book of the Year, and it established her as a vital American Muslim literary voice. Now she delivers The Bird King, a stunning new novel that tells the story of Fatima, a concubine in the royal court of Granada, the last emirate of Muslim Spain, and her dearest friend Hassan, the palace mapmaker. Hassan has a secret―he can draw maps of places he’s never seen and bend the shape of reality. When representatives of the newly formed Spanish monarchy arrive to negotiate the sultan’s surrender, Fatima befriends one of the women, not realizing that she will see Hassan’s gift as sorcery and a threat to Christian Spanish rule. With their freedoms at stake, what will Fatima risk to save Hassan and escape the palace walls? As Fatima and Hassan traverse Spain with the help of a clever jinn to find safety, The Bird King asks us to consider what love is and the price of freedom at a time when the West and the Muslim world were not yet separate.




The Iliad

In a companion volume to his award-winning adaptation of The Odyssey, the incomparable graphic novelist Gareth Hinds masterfully adapts Homer’s classic wartime epic.

More than three thousand years ago, two armies faced each other in an epic battle that rewrote history and came to be known as the Trojan War. The Iliad, Homer's legendary account of this nine-year ordeal, is considered the greatest war story of all time and one of the most important works of Western literature. In this stunning graphic novel adaptation — a thoroughly researched and artfully rendered masterwork — renowned illustrator Gareth Hinds captures all the grim glory of Homer's epic. Dynamic illustrations take readers directly to the plains of Troy, into the battle itself, and lay bare the complex emotions of the men, women, and gods whose struggles fueled the war and determined its outcome. This companion volume to Hinds’s award-winning adaptation of The Odyssey features notes, maps, a cast of characters, and other tools to help readers understand all the action and drama of Homer's epic.




All the Wrong Places

Online dating is risky—will that message be a sweet greeting or an unsolicited lewd photo? Will he be as handsome in real life as he is in his photos, or were they taken ten years and twenty pounds ago? And when he asks you to go home with him, how do you know it’s safe? The man calling himself “Mr. Right Now” in his profile knows that his perfect hair, winning smile, and charming banter put women at ease, silencing any doubts they might have about going back to his apartment. There, he has a special evening all planned out: steaks, wine, candlelight . . . and, by the end of the night, pain and a slow, agonizing death.

Driven to desperation—by divorce, boredom, infidelity, a beloved husband’s death—a young woman named Paige, her cousin and rival Heather, her best friend, Chloe, and her mother, Joan, all decide to try their hand at online dating. They each download an app, hoping to right-swipe their way to love and happiness.

But one of them unwittingly makes a date with the killer, starting the clock on a race to save her life.




Heroine

When a car crash sidelines Mickey just before softball season, she has to find a way to hold on to her spot as the catcher for a team expected to make a historic tournament run. Behind the plate is the only place she’s ever felt comfortable, and the painkillers she’s been prescribed can help her get there.

The pills do more than take away pain; they make her feel good.

With a new circle of friends—fellow injured athletes, others with just time to kill—Mickey finds peaceful acceptance, and people with whom words come easily, even if it is just the pills loosening her tongue.

But as the pressure to be Mickey Catalan heightens, her need increases, and it becomes less about pain and more about want, something that could send her spiraling out of control.




Salt in My Soul: An Unfinished Life

Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at the age of three, Mallory Smith grew up to be a determined, talented young woman who inspired others even as she privately raged against her illness. Despite the daily challenges of endless medical treatments and a deep understanding that she’d never lead a normal life, Mallory was determined to “Live Happy,” a mantra she followed until her death. Mallory worked hard to make the most out of the limited time she had, graduating Phi Beta Kappa from Stanford University, becoming a cystic fibrosis advocate well known in the CF community, and embarking on a career as a professional writer. Along the way, she cultivated countless intimate friendships and ultimately found love.

For more than ten years, Mallory recorded her thoughts and observations about struggles and feelings too personal to share during her life, leaving instructions for her mother to publish her work posthumously. She hoped that her writing would offer insight to those living with, or loving someone with, chronic illness.




The DNA of You and Me

A powerful debut novel—a wonderfully engaging infusion of Lab Girl, The Assistants, and Eleanor Oliphant Is Completely Fine—that pits the ambition of scientific discovery against the siren call of love.

How does smell work? Specifically, how do olfactory sensory neurons reach their targets in the brain, where smell is processed? Justin McKinnon has hired Emily Apell to study that question. What Justin hasn’t told Emily is that two other scientists in the lab, Aeden and Allegra, are working on a very similar topic, and their findings may compete with her research.

Emily was born focused and driven. She’s always been more comfortable staring down the barrel of a microscope than making small talk with strangers. Competition doesn’t scare her. Her special place is the lab, where she analyzes DNA sequences, looking for new genes that might be involved in guiding olfactory neurons to their targets.

To Emily’s great surprise, her rational mind is unsettled by Aeden. As they shift from competitors to colleagues, and then to something more, Emily allows herself to see a future in which she doesn’t end up alone. But when Aeden decides to leave the lab, it becomes clear to Emily that she must make a choice: follow her research or follow her heart.

          Enjoy Shopping and Reliable Wi-Fi at Portal de la Marina      Cache   Translate Page      


Portal de la Marina is a prominent shopping center in the Marina Alta region of Alicante. As a universe of fun and shopping, Portal de la Marina carries leading brands in fashion, services, home items, restaurants, as well as a giant Hypermarket. With its Mediterranean character, custom-tailored to the needs of the area, the complex has been designed to capture the magical, mysterious effect of city streets of southeastern Spain. Aiming to be the perfect leisure paradise for all customers, a reliable and secure Wi-Fi infrastructure must be in place to keep the guest experience at top-notch level.

The complexity of the project lies in several aspects. First, the visual impact had to be almost nonexistent. Second, the installation and implementation had to be fast and in non-business hours. Last but not least, provide the highest ratio of coverage and bandwidth to overcome all architectural barriers. Due to the vast scale of the property (90,000 m2) and the main catchment area of close to 216,000 people, the primary issues faced by the shopping center were to provide sustained Wi-Fi coverage and being able to manage access points (APs) and user access. The Portal de la Marina team set out to find a new Wi-Fi solution by evaluating a number of suppliers available on the market and selected 4ipnet as their offering of choice, supported by 4ipnet’s local distributor WifiSafe.

The chosen solution included 4ipnet’s WHG711 wireless LAN controller, EAP767 and OWL630 concurrent dual-band access points, and SW2008 unified access switches. Advanced AP management features on the WHG711, such as automatic AP discovery and provisioning, bulk AP configuration, and real-time status notifications, simplified the deployment process. Once the APs went online, users could seamlessly roam between different APs without losing connectivity. Load balancing also prevented individual APs from being overly congested. With these functions, the Wi-Fi network was able to service thousands of simultaneous concurrent users, and the risk of potential downtime was reduced.

Despite all the challenges, the project had been successfully done on time. According to the IT team from Portal de la Marina, they were amazed by the Customized Captive Portal feature providing them with information to be able to generate statistics and carry out better marketing campaigns in this Big Data world. Besides, with OWL630 outdoor access point, now customers can enjoy seamless Wi-Fi from the parking lot all the way through the mall.

Portal de la Marina demonstrates a perfect example of how a shopping center can successfully deploy a large-scale Wi-Fi network using 4ipnet’s solution. With high performance APs, comprehensive user and AP management features, the shopping center reaffirms its commitment to providing advanced services and experience to their customers.

          Extended & Reliable WI-FI at Congresium International Convention & Exhibition Centre      Cache   Translate Page      

Congresium International Convention & Exhibition Centre is a leading exhibition center in Ankara, Turkey, with top-level facilities and an expansive area of 80,000 m² that can be customized to fulfill the needs of all kinds of events. A notable event it hosted was the United Nations Convention to Combat Desertification’s Twelfth Session of the Conference of the Parties (UNCCD COP12), held from October 12-23, 2015.

Decision-makers and participants from 195 member states attended the COP12 to discuss climate change issues and their solutions. During the conference, Internet access was a primary demand for the guests. However, for Congresium, providing wireless coverage to service more than 3,000 concurrent users across the different areas of the vast premise was not an easy task.

Coverage and high user density were the most primary concerns, as there could not be any Wi-Fi dead spots. Also, given the high number of users and devices during the event, the APs needed to be well-managed with advanced features that prevented overloading. Furthermore, an end-to-end solution with a secure user authentication method was essential, as unauthorized access could potentially cause leaks of confidential information. Finally, segregated virtual networks for different usage scenarios were also required to add another layer of security. To address these challenges, Congresium turned to 4ipnet’s local partner, Ipeknet.

Ipeknet’s technical expertise convinced Congresium that a centralized AP and user management was essential for successful WLAN operation. Ipeknet proposed 4ipnet’s WHG711 wireless LAN controller (and an additional unit for high availability), EAP767 and EAP757 concurrent dual-band access points, and SW1008 unified access switches. Ipeknet completed the deployment in time, and also provided IT support during the conference.

Advanced AP management features on the WHG711 such as automatic AP discovery and provisioning, bulk AP configuration, and real-time status notifications simplified the deployment process. Users were also able to roam seamlessly between different APs without losing connectivity. Furthermore, load balancing prevented individual APs from being overly congested. With these functions, the Wi-Fi network was able to service thousands of simultaneous concurrent users, and the risk of potential downtime was reduced.

In addition to stable Wi-Fi connectivity, 4ipnet’s authentication solution also allowed the conference center to provide flexible and secure browser-based user authentication. After being authenticated on the network, each user could then be applied with schedule based QoS, firewall, and routing profile according to their role. As a result, network administrators were able to prevent individual users from consuming the entire network bandwidth, ensuring that all users would receive an acceptable connection quality. Detailed user-browsing history logs were also stored to meet local government requirements.

The COP12 was a success, and it was proudly observed that the 3000 clients connected to Wi-Fi without any problem. As a result, both Congresium and the UN authorities were very pleased with the performance and services provided by 4ipnet and Ipeknet.

Congresium International Convention & Exhibition Centre is a perfect example of how a public venue can successfully deploy a large-scale Wi-Fi network using 4ipnet’s solution. With high performance APs and comprehensive user and AP management features, the venue reaffirms its commitment to providing advanced facilities and services to business professionals worldwide.

Advanced AP management features on the WHG525, such as automatic AP discovery and provisioning, bulk AP configuration, and real-time status notifications, greatly simplified the deployment process. Once the APs were brought online, users could immediately start to roam seamlessly between different APs without losing connectivity. Load balancing also prevented individual APs from being overly congested. With these functions, the Wi-Fi network was able to service numerous concurrent users with a low chance of potential downtime. On top of that, 4ipnet's role-based user policies allow IT administrators to pre-define multiple user roles and assign unique time-and-location based access policies in the wireless network.

The hotel selected multiple access point models for different environments and usage scenarios. The EAP220 was deployed in the common areas while the EAP701 was deployed in the guest rooms and the OWL530 in the public outdoor area. 4ipnet APs support numerous enterprise-grade features to ensure a smooth and uninterrupted Wi-Fi experience. For example, the OWL530 comes with the ability to automatically detect nearby wireless utilization and adjust the internal Clear Channel Assessment (CCA) threshold accordingly. As a result, the OWL530 is able to transmit as often as possible without increasing the wireless packet collision rate, leading to increased network capacity and an improved overall network performance.

Lin Wen-Yi, IT department assistant manager of the resort, was pleased with the results. “Promisedland Resort & Lagoon is a large-scale luxury resort focused on accommodation quality, service, safety management, and the use of information to actively provide real-time service. Due to the vast scale of the property, the network services must be seamless and no dead spots should be found to ensure quality Wi-Fi experience. 4ipnet solution is the perfect choice! The concise and intuitive user interface (UI) and multiple network management offer the IT staff a variety of flexible options on user policies. Saving setup work by using the templates for AP provisioning, as well as integration with Hotel Asset Management System (PMS), are definitely musts at international hotels. Finally, with 4ipnet’s assistance and engineering department’s collaboration, the network infrastructure has been successfully deployed” said Lin.

Tears are like rain. They loosen up our soil so we can grow in different directions. ~Virginia Casey

Just look at these beautiful pink earrings! They are natural natural rose quartz stones that have been permanently dyed to enhance their color. Hand wrapped in sterling silver by me. Perfect for spring!

Total length: 1 1/2" measured from top of ear wire
All of my ear wires are sterling silver except for the hypoallergenic hooks, which are raw titanium. Post ear wires will shorten the earrings by 1/4". Flat wire hooks are pictured here.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Rose quartz is one of the most desirable varieties of quartz. The unique pink-to-rose-red color is caused by iron and titanium impurities in the natural stone. However, the stones I use, unless otherwise stated, (and most on the market) have been dyed to maintain a uniform color. Both naturally colored rose quartz and the dyed forms are photosensitive and will fade in sunlight. Beads of rose quartz have been found in Mesopotamia that date back to 7000 B.C. It is said that the Assyrians and the Romans were the first to use it. In ancient Rome, rose quartz was popular for making seals, which were used in clay or various dyes to show ownership or identify authors. Rose quartz is found in Madagascar, Brazil, India, Germany and several parts of the USA.

The role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. Until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. Silver jewelry has been found as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was the main supplier of silver for a long time and as a result, became very rich. The discovery of the America's and subsequent silver mining in the United State and Mexico were responsible for the drop in value. Silver is a precious metal, not a mineral. Today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and Russia.

-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Once upon a time, there was a wise man who used to go to the ocean to do his writing. He had a habit of walking on the beach before he began his work. ~ One day, as he was walking along the shore, he looked down the beach and saw a human figure moving like a dancer. He smiled to himself at the thought of someone who would dance to the day, and so, he walked faster to catch up. ~ As he got closer, he noticed that the figure was that of a young man, and that what he was doing was not dancing at all. The young man was reaching down to the shore, picking up small objects, and throwing them into the ocean. ~ He came closer still and called out "Good morning! May I ask what it is that you are doing?" ~ The young man paused, looked up, and replied "Throwing starfish into the ocean." ~ "I must ask, then, why are you throwing starfish into the ocean?" asked the somewhat startled wise man. ~ To this, the young man replied, "The sun is up and the tide is going out. If I don't throw them in, they'll die." ~ Upon hearing this, the wise man commented, "But, young man, do you not realize that there are miles and miles of beach and there are starfish all along every mile? You can't possibly make a difference!" ~ At this, the young man bent down, picked up yet another starfish, and threw it into the ocean. As it met the water, he said, "It made a difference for that one." ~Loren Eiseley

Turquoise has been revered for thousands of years! Crusaders discovered this stone in Turkey. Its name means "Turkish stone" in French, a reference to where Persian material passed on its way to Europe. Native Americans have long considered it a holy stone. They also believed it was a magic stone protecting them against harm. Objects of turquoise have been discovered in tombs, indicating that the ancient Egyptians and Greeks also believed the stone to have protective properties. In the middle ages, it was thought to give women a sense of happiness and contentment and guarantee success and power to men. The most beautiful specimens are found in Arizona.

To be in love is merely to be in a state of perceptual anesthesia - to mistake an ordinary young woman for a goddess. ~H. L. Mencken
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
I'm fascinated by peridot because it's found where there's volcanic activity. Did you know it's one of the few gemstones found in only one color? I call it Granny Smith apple green with a hint of lime. I love the glow and I love it on my summer tanned skin. The stones on this bracelet are little "coins" with faceted edges separated by tiny little rounds. In the center is a 3-D Karen Hill Tribe find silver bead. Beautiful and affordable! It's finished with a lobster clasp and extension chain.

SIZING - If you need a size that is not listed, please contact me. Because bead size can change the size of a bracelet, my sizes are always the INSIDE circumference of the piece when clasped, NOT the unclasped length. You can determine the size you need by measuring the smallest part of your wrist and adding 1/2 to 3/4 of an inch depending on how loose you'd like it. For example, if your wrist measures 6 1/2 inches, you'd order a size 7. Because this bracelet has an extension chain, you'll be able to make it bigger, but not smaller. Please ask if you need help determining size.

Glistening green peridot is a volcanic gem formed in the deep fires of the earth. Peridot splits and bends the rays of light passing through it, giving it a velvety appearance and rich glow. Pronounced PEAR-ih-doh (or PEAR-ih-dot), its yellow-green color is mainly dependent on the amount of ferrous iron present. The traditional birthstone of August, peridot has been mined for over 4,000 years. On Hawaii, it is treasured as the tears of Pele. An entire beach in Oahu is formed of peridot sand, worn to powder by the ceaseless ocean. It is said to have been Cleopatra's favorite gemstone. Avoid exposing peridot beads to acids, quick temperature changes, scratches, sharp blows, or home ultrasonic cleaners.

This lustrous gem acquired its name from the ancient Romans, who wore elongated pearls as ear pendants that they called pirla, a slang diminutive of pira (“pear”). It’s said that if diamonds are a girl’s best friend, then pearls must be her favorite sister. The pearl is an organic gem grown within oysters and a few other mollusks. Folklore says that Cleopatra served wine with ground pearls in it to her more important guests. Precious pearl jewelry, much loved by kings, emperors, tsars, maharajahs and princes can be admired in museums throughout the world. A pearl necklace worn four thousand years ago by the Persian queen Achemenid can still be admired today.

I love the 'landscapes' that can be seen in the patterns of picture jasper. Don't you? Beautiful browns. Sweet, simple, stunning earrings. Every stone is different and unique. Each pair will have similar colors as those shown here.

If you believe, jasper has special meanings for Capricorn, Aries and Virgo. Read more below.

Total length: 1 7/8" measured from top of ear wire.
All of my ear wires are sterling silver except for the hypoallergenic hooks, which are raw titanium. Post ear wires will shorten the earrings by 1/4". Flat wire hooks are pictured here.

Free domestic shipping is available when your order totals $25 or more. Etsy doesn't have a calculation for this, so if your order qualifies, I will promptly refund any shipping dollars you were charged.

the Greek origin of the word jasper, iapis, means “spotted stone.” this form of semi-precious chalcedony, or microcrystalline quartz, has colors of dark red, orange, pink, rust, yellow, tan, brown, green, gray, blue and black. its patterns are much less regular and defined than those of the other chalcedony variety, agate. another difference between the two is that jaspers are generally opaque, while agates tend to be translucent (or at least contain translucent bands). jasper gets its colorful patterns from other minerals present. this gemstone is often named according to its pattern; landscape jaspers are the most popular. jasper was a favorite in the ancient world, and the name jasper can be traced back in Hebrew, Assyrian, Persian, Greek and Latin. people of the fourth century called it the great “rain-bringer”. jasper is also known as the “supreme nurturer”. jasper is mined in North Africa, Sicily, France, India, Venezuela, Germany, the USA and many more countries.

picture jasper is petrified mud and has streaks of color (browns, tans, blacks, creams) that look like landscapes, anything from desert sand dunes to rocky mountains to a dry riverbed. it is formed by mud rich with quartz that oozed and dripped into pockets of gas formed by molten lava. the heat from the exposure turned the mud almost instantly solid. picture jasper is found in Idaho and Oregon.

the role played by silver in ancient civilizations is similar to that played by gold. until the eighteenth century silver was considered almost as valuable as gold. silver jewelry was produced as early as the fourth millennium B.C. Saxony was for a long time the main supplier of silver and it became very rich as a result. after the discovery of the Americas by the Europeans, so much silver was mined in the United States and Mexico that the price and the value attached to silver fell sharply. today the largest deposits of silver are found in Mexico, Australia and the former Soviet Union. silver is a precious metal, not a mineral.

->->-> for those who believe ;)
-- jasper --
Native American rain stone, will-power
star sign:
Capricorn - will find that this gemstone promotes steadfastness and self-confidence.
Aries - jasper symbolizes will power. it endows Aries with follow through and energy.
Virgo - jasper fosters modesty and self-restraint, strengthening one's sense of reality
and connection to the earth. it gives Virgo physical and psychological strength.

-- silver --
some believe that silver transmits and intensifies the power of healing stones, so that when they are set in silver they become even more powerful. turquoise and coral are examples. like gold, silver symbolizes wealth and prosperity. those prone to outbursts of anger and rudeness can be pacified by silver.

THE WONDER CHILD
By Emmet Fox
Excerpt from “Power Through Constructive Thinking”
First published 1932

Strange as it may seem to you there exists a mystic power that is able to transform your life so thoroughly, so radically, so completely, that when the process is completed your own friends would hardly recognize you, and in fact, you would scarcely be able to recognize yourself. You would sit down and ask yourself: “Can I really be the man or woman that I vaguely remember, who went about under my name six months or six years ago? Was I really that person? Could that person possible have been I?  And the truth will be that while in one sense you are indeed the same person, yet in another sense you will be someone utterly different. The mystic but intensely real force can pick you up today, now, from the midst of failure, ruin, misery, despair—and in the twinkling of an eye, as Paul said, solve your problems, smooth out your difficulties, cut you free from any entanglements, and place you clear, safe and happy upon the highroad of freedom and opportunity.

It can lift you out of an invalid’s bed, make you sound and well once more, and free to go out into the world and shape your life as you will. It can throw open the prison door and liberate the captive. It has magical healing balm for the bruised or broken heart.

This mystic Power can teach you all things that you need to know, if only you are receptive and teachable. It can inspire you with new thoughts and ideas, so that your work may be truly original. It can impart new and wonderful kinds of knowledge as soon as you really want such knowledge—glorious knowledge—strange things not taught in schools or written in books. It can do for you that which is probably the most important thing of all in your present stage: it can find your true place in life for you, and put you into it too. It can find the right friends for you, kindred spirits who are interested in the same ideas and want the same things that you do. It can provide you with an ideal home. It can furnish you with the prosperity that means freedom, freedom to be and to do and to go as your soul calls.

This extraordinary Power, mystic though I have rightly called it, is nevertheless very real, no mere imaginary abstraction, but actually the most practical thing there is. The existence of this Power is already well know to thousands of people in the world today and has been known to certain enlightened souls for tens of thousands of years. This Power is really no less than the primal Power of Being, and to discover that Power is the Divine birthright of all men (and women, my insertion). It is your right and your privilege to make your contact with this Power, and to allow it to work through your body, mind, and estate, so that you need no longer grovel upon the ground amid limitations and difficulties, but can soar up on wings like and eagle to the realm of dominion and joy.

But where, it will naturally be asked, is this wonderful, mystic Power to be contacted? Where may we find it? and how is it brought into action? The answer is perfectly simple—This Power is to be found within your own consciousness, the last place that most people would look for it. Right within your own mentality there lies a source of energy stronger than electricity, more potent than high explosive; unlimited and inexhaustible. You only need to make conscious contact with this Power to set it working in your affairs; and all the marvelous results enumerated can be yours. This is the real meaning of such sayings in the Bible as “The Kingdom of God is within you”; and “Seek ye first the Kingdom of God and all the rest shall be added.”
