Questions:

1. What is your largest priority for Cary if elected?

There are many pressing issues facing our village. These include the following: finding sustainable sources to increase revenue, pension reform, senior housing demands, and improving the quality of life for all of our current and future residents. It is imperative that we have sustainable and meaningful development so that we can continue to balance our budget, continue to deliver high level services, maintain excellent resources from our police so that we can retain our #1 rating as lowest crime rate in the county; all while keeping a watchful eye on our property taxes. We must address both short and long term solutions as the revenues to the Village have remained constant, however, our financial obligations continue and will continue to increase. Working together with the various taxing bodies as well as municipal partnering is an avenue we should continue implementing and take to a higher level. On a state level, the pension burden is unsustainable and it is time for everyone to work for the good of all residents in our state to have meaningful reform.

2. What changes should Cary make in the future?

One change that I believe will yield positive results is having a board that works collaboratively for the best interests of the residents. When residents elect their representatives they should expect and demand that they are serving them and not serving their own agendas or personal issues. Elected officials should always have an open mind and willingness to meet with residents, fellow board members, the mayor, and staff, as well as being open to business owners and developers. We also need to make sure that potential businesses and developers know that the Village of Cary is open for their business and that we want to optimize investment in Cary by bringing in sustainable businesses and developments that will add value to our Village. We have limited property left to develop and we need to insure that when something goes into the spaces that it meets the criteria of highest and best use of the property, will bring revenue to the Village, as well as enhance the character of Cary. There will be times when developments and businesses are not a good fit, but we are tasked with gathering and processing presented information prior to making a determination and decision. A board that puts the interests of all residents as its top priority can unify and our residents deserve and will benefit from their elected officials acting in this manner.

3. How do you feel about Cary’s video gambling and any potential expansion into places such as gas stations?

Currently the position that the village board has taken is that video gaming has been approved as an enhancement to a business that is serving food, has a required amount of seats, be out of direct access to customers, and not as a core profit center. This has slowed the pace by which video gaming has expanded within our village. Our current model has been working well for both the business owners and the village. However, video gaming is expanding throughout the state and surrounding towns at a rapid rate. I believe that we should continue to be open to the possibility of change, review the restrictions as they come before us so that we remain competitive with surrounding communities, as well as be careful not to change the character and charm of our town. If we elected to modify our current position then I would want to minimize the visibility of video gaming from the outside appearance of the establishment as well as the type of advertising to promote the activity. While I do not want to lose business to a neighboring community, I always want to remain true to what is best for our community as a whole and not negatively impact our Village.

4. How do you feel about Cary’s recent and upcoming senior housing projects?

I am very excited about our newest senior housing projects. I am proud that I voted in favor of both the PIHRL senior development as well as the Haber Oaks duplex project. This is in contrast to other board members who are also seeking re-election. This is a core principle of my campaign as the population in Cary is aging and we need to have options to meet the needs of this demographic. These are people who have lived in Cary for an extended time, raised their families, paid the taxes to build our schools and infrastructure, love their Churches, doctors, restaurants, and grocery stores, etc., and are in need of homes that will meet their needs so that they can age in place. I feel that these developments are a good start but that we still need a variety of options, such as single-family homes, town homes, condominiums, and rentals, as well as varying price points as we have a diverse sector of seniors and needs. This demographic is projected to continue growing and we need to have the forth sight to plan accordingly.

5. How do you feel about the way that Cary handled its harassment investigation of a village trustee?

I am disappointed on many levels but mainly because this happened and no one should be treated in such a manner. The village handled the complaint just as they have handled similar complaints in the past. They consulted with the village attorney and then hired out an independent investigator. Because I was the recipient of this behavior, I am able to articulate a unique perspective. After trying to resolve this directly with Trustee Cosler, then with the Village Administrator, and next with the Village Board, my options were filing a harassment claim or lawsuit, and I did not want to file suit. The claim was investigated, the parties were given an option to participate, the accused chose not to participate, and findings were rendered substantiating the claims. I am disappointed that there is not a policy that covers an elected official’s behavior as this type of conduct would not be acceptable in the private sector, public sector, classroom, or boardroom. My disappointment extends to the elected officials who then wanted to bury and destroy the findings, which certainly does not meet any standard of transparency. This was paid for by the taxpayers and, as such, is property of the taxpayers. When they were not successful in this attempt, they called a special board meeting, which cost the taxpayers in excess of $1500 to simply repudiate the report. In my humble opinion, the residents should not only expect but demand and deserve their elected officials to behave professionally and respectfully at all times.

6. How do you feel about Cary’s new social media policy?

I am thrilled that we were able to pass a social media policy, which has led to the Village of Cary instituting a Facebook page. I championed this effort beginning prior to me actually being sworn into office. It took almost four years but I am happy that all but one of the trustees voted to approve the policy. This is another tool to disseminate information to our residents, as I believe in true transparency. The previous village board wanted increased transparency as well and rewired the boardroom so that we would be able to tape our meetings. We now broadcast them on YouTube. In the future, we need to stay cognizant of other modes of relaying information to our residents and adapting as mediums adjust. While this is one way to communicate, we still need to be aware that this is not all encompassing. We have residents who do not use social media so we need to always be looking for additional ways, such as digital mailing and expanding our cell phone textcaster messaging, as methods to communicate with residents.

7. What else should we know about you?

I love Cary and serving the residents of our village. Cary exudes small town charm with a huge compassionate heart. I am proud of my time on the village board and believe that my record supports that I want what is best for the town and our residents. I have been an extremely active member of the community volunteering my time to various schools, Church, Chamber of Commerce, park district programs, and multiple civic organizations … as well as my husband, Christopher, and I, raising our five children and now being blessed with five grandchildren. I also manage a residential mortgage banking company. All of these experiences have prepared me to work collaboratively and respectfully with others and to critically analyze situations for long term implications prior to making decisions. I believe that working with and listening to others is a skill set that is necessary to achieve optimum results personally, professionally, and in a political forum. I have chosen to align myself with Dale Collier Jr, and Sean Wheeler under our banner of WE UNITE CARY as we are united in wanting to work together in an effective manner to improve the quality of life for all of our residents.

          Ιράν: 38 χρόνια κάθειρξη και 148 μαστιγώσεις για την Νασρίν Σοτουντέχ      Cache   Translate Page      

Η Ιρανή δικηγόρος, υπέρμαχος των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων Νασρίν Σοτουντέχ καταδικάστηκε σε 38 χρόνια κάθειρξη και 148 μαστιγώσεις, ανέφερε ο σύζυγός της Ρεζά Χαντάν στη σελίδα του στο Facebook, χωρίς να αναφέρει τις κατηγορίες εναντίον της.

Ωστόσο το ιρανικό πρακτορείο Isna μετέδωσε ότι η Σοτουντέχ καταδικάστηκε σε «πέντε χρόνια φυλάκιση για συνομωσία κατά του συστήματος και δύο χρόνια επειδή προσέβαλε τον ανώτατο ηγέτη» του Ιράν Αλί Χαμενεΐ.

Η Σοτουντέχ, η οποία συνελήφθη τον Ιούνιο του 2018, έχει εκτίσει στο παρελθόν τη μισή από μια εξαετή ποινή κάθειρξης που της είχε επιβληθεί το 2010 για διασπορά προπαγάνδας και συνομωσία κατά της ασφάλειας του κράτους επειδή υπερασπίστηκε ακτιβιστές της αντιπολίτευσης που συμμετείχαν στις διαδηλώσεις του 2009 εναντίον του τότε προέδρου Μαχμούτ Αχμαντινετζάντ. Αφέθηκε ελεύθερη το 2013.

Στο μήνυμά του στο Facebook ο Χαντάν αναφέρει ότι η σύζυγός του «καταδικάστηκε σε 38 χρόνια κάθειρξη και 148 μαστιγώσεις. Πέντε χρόνια για την πρώτη υπόθεση και 33 χρόνια και 148 μαστιγώσεις για τη δεύτερη», χωρίς όμως να διευκρινίσει ποια είναι η πρώτη υπόθεση και ποια η δεύτερη.

Πέρυσι η Σοτουντέχ εκπροσώπησε κάποιες γυναίκες που αφαίρεσαν το χιτζάμπ τους δημοσίως για να διαμαρτυρηθούν κατά των αυστηρών ενδυματολογικών κανόνων που ισχύουν στο Ιράν για τις γυναίκες, σύμφωνα με το Κέντρων Ανθρωπίνων Δικαιωμάτων στο Ιράν με έδρα τη Νέα Υόρκη.

Οργανώσεις προάσπισης των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων επέκριναν έντονα τη νέα καταδίκη της Σοτουντέχ, η οποία έχει τιμηθεί και με το βραβείο Ζαχάρωφ για την Ελευθερία της Σκέψης από το Ευρωπαϊκό Κοινοβούλιο.

«Η Νασρίν Σοτουντέχ έχει αφιερώσει τη ζωή της στην υπεράσπιση των δικαιωμάτων των γυναικών στο να μιλά κατά της θανατικής ποινής», επεσήμανε ο Φίλιπ Λούθερ της Διεθνούς Αμνηστίας.

«Είναι απολύτως εξοργιστικό ότι οι αρχές του Ιράν την τιμωρούν για το έργο της υπέρ των ανθρωπίνων δικαιωμάτων», πρόσθεσε.

          ΗΠΑ: Αστυνομικοί εισβάλλουν σε θάλαμο που νοσηλεύεται καρκινοπαθής ψάχνοντας για κάνναβη      Cache   Translate Page      

Ο Nolan Sousley πάσχει από καρκίνο στο πάγκρεας (στάδιο 4ο). Την Τρίτη αισθάνθηκε έντονη αδιαθεσία και εισήχθη στο Citizens Memorial Hospital  στο Μιζούρι με υψηλό πυρετό και συνεχής νυχτερινή έντονη εφίδρωση. Στο πλευρό του ήταν h σύντροφός του Amber Kidwell.

Μια ημέρα μετά, ένας άνδρας της εταιρείας security του νοσοκομείου μπήκε στο του ζήτησε να κάνει έλεγχο στις τσάντες που είχε μαζί του υποστηρίζοντας πως από το δωμάτιο του ερχόταν μυρωδιά μαριχουάνας. Ο ασθενής αρνήθηκε.

Λίγο αργότερα, όπως φαίνεται στο βίντεο που ανάρτησε στα μέσα κοινωνικής δικτύωσης, εισέβαλαν στο δωμάτιό του αστυνομικοί και άρχισαν, φυσικά χωρίς να ρωτήσουν, να κάνουν έρευνα στο δωμάτιο και να ψάχνουν τα πράγματα του ασθενή, τις τσάντες τους κλπ.

Ο Sousley ακούγεται να του λέει πως μέσα στις τσάντες είχε βάλει λάδι κάνναβης αλλά είχε το σκεύασμα το είχε αφήσει στο πάρκινγκ. Οι αστυνομικοί του είπαν πως εάν έβρισκαν κάτι θα του έδιναν κλήση για να παρουσιαστεί ενώπιον του δικαστηρίου. Και μετά ακούγονται να λένε «Δεν σε πάμε στη φυλακή. Δεν βρήκαμε μαριχουάνα».

 

Ο δε Sousley υπενθυμίζει στους αστυνομικούς πως η χρήση μαριχουάνας για ιατρικούς λόγους είναι νόμιμη αλλά ο ένας εξ αυτών του απαντά «είναι ακόμη παράνομο».

Η αλήθεια είναι πως η συνταγογράφηση μαριχουάνας από τους ιατρούς θα ξεκινήσει στην Πολιτεία του Μιζούρι φέτος το καλοκαίρι-μετά τη νομιμοποίησή της τον περασμένο Νοέμβριο- αλλά πολλοί ασθενείς πλέον τη χρησιμοποιούν δεδομένου ότι έχει ψηφιστεί ο σχετικός νόμος. 

«Μα δεν έχω χρόνο να περιμένω. Εσύ τι θα έκανες; Πες μου εσύ τι θα έκανες;» τον ρωτάει απελπισμένος ο ασθενής Sousley, μιλώντας στη Bolivar Herald-Free Press, οι αστυνομικοί ζήτησαν να ελέγξουν μια ακόμη τσάντα που είχε μαζί του.

Ο Sousley όμως αρχικά αρνήθηκε και όπως είπε στον αστυνομικό ήταν η «τσάντα για την ύστατη ώρα». Τελικά επέτρεψε να την ελέγξουν αλλά αφού όλοι οι άλλοι είχαν αποχωρήσει από το δωμάτιο του...

 

Ο αρχηγός της τοπικής αστυνομίας επιβεβαίωσε στη Bolivar Herald-Free Press ότι οι αξιωματικοί είχαν λάβει τη συγκατάθεσή του ασθενή πριν πραγματοποιήσουν έρευνα στο δωμάτιο διευκρινίζοντας πως τελικά δεν βρέθηκε τίποτε παράνομο.

Αν και το βίντεο έχει προκαλέσει πολλά αρνητικά σχόλια, η αστυνομία δεν προτίθεται να διεξάγει έρευνα σχετικά με την υπερβάλλοντα ζήλο των αστυνομικών σε βάρος ενός καρκινοπαθή.

Η δε σύντροφός Sousley, Kindell, δηλώνει με έμφαση πως ο κάθε ασθενής θα πρέπει ελεύθερα να επιλέγει τη θεραπεία που θεωρεί καλύτερη για τον ίδιο. «Κανείς δεν ξέρει τι θα κάνει μέχρι να βρεθείτε σε αυτή την κατάσταση, ούτε τι μπορεί να κάνει κάποιος για να σώσει τη ζωή του αγαπημένου του».

          Facebook says the future is private messaging, not public posts      Cache   Translate Page      
Mathew Ingram, Columbia Journalism Review, Mar 11, 2019
Icon

If you want to understand Facebook's pivot to a private messaging system, think of it as being like email, except that it's all on one centralized platform, and where the platform owners can mine the contents of the email more marketing purposes or whatever. Nothing would happen in public, of course, and targeted FaceMail(tm) advertising campaigns would take place completely under the radar. Journalists concerned about how they will reach their markets should be more concerned about the wider social implications.

Lyon-Turin tunnel: a strategic key project for France, Italy and Europe

Italian Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte has asked France and the European Union to rediscuss the plans for a Lyon-Turin rail link and the distribution of costs. France holds firm in its belief that the planned rail link is worthwhile.
 
The Government has taken note of the Italian government's concerns over the planned Lyon-Turin link. For its part, France remains convinced that this flagship project is wholly of interest for trade and movements between our two nations and for Europe.

Backed by France and Italy for almost three decades already, the Lyon-Turin rail link is underpinned by a bilateral treaty ratified in 2017, and has secured European funding for 40% of the budget for building the cross-border tunnel. France reiterates its commitment to honour the pledges made and the project delivery dates.

Building of the cross-border tunnel and its French access points has been included in the investment planning outlined in the framework mobility bill. The Minister for Transport has also set an in-depth work process in motion with the local authorities for the delivery of the French access points.

France has always respected the Italian government's wishes to engage in discussions on this project, and is naturally open to holding talks between partners.

During this discussion phase, at the next Board meeting of TELT (Tunnel Euralpin Lyon Turin) France is in favour of launching the notifications for calls for applications necessary for work on the tunnel to continue. This will make it possible both to allow for the discussion period Italy wants and to maintain European funding.

March is Music in Our Schools Month in SPS as Superintendent Juneau writes in her journal.  As well, a local group, the Newcombe Foundation has a program for getting musical instruments to students in need in some areas of the Puget Sound region including Seattle.  Their deadline for application is April 30th.

In the news:

It's news but it's not surprising news.  Apparently, via an owner of a for-profit Newport Beach college admissions company, there was quite the number people, including celebrities, trying to buy their way into colleges and universities by having test scores changed and/or having others take the test for their child and/or getting accommodations that a child wasn't truly eligible to have.  Truly disgusting. 

From the LA Times:
The scheme, which began in 2011, centered around the owner of a for-profit Newport Beach college admissions company that wealthy parents paid to help their children cheat on college entrance exams and to falsify athletic records of students to enable them to secure admission to elite schools, including UCLA, USC, Stanford, Yale and Georgetown, according to court records.

Prosecutors allege that Singer instructed parents to donate funds to a fake charity he had established as part of the scheme. Most of the parents paid at least $200,000, but some spent up to $6.5 million to guarantee their children admission to top universities, authorities said. The parents were then able to deduct the donation from their income taxes, according to the Internal Revenue Service.

“Make no mistake: This is not a case where parents were acting in the best interests of their children. This is a case where they flaunted their wealth, sparring no expense, to cheat the system so they could set their children up for success with the best education money could buy, literally,” Bonavolonta said. “Their actions were without a doubt insidious, selfish and shameful. And the real victims in the case are the hardworking students who did everything they could to set themselves up for success in the college admissions process, but ended up being shut out because far less qualified students and their families simply bought their way in.”
 As was stated on Twitter:
"A good day to remember that there are black and brown parents who are sitting in prison today because they listed a relative’s address as their own for the chance of their child receiving an adequate public school education."

From The Atlantic, an thought-provoking story about explaining that your kid is going to trade school, not college.
This shift in the job and education markets can leave parents feeling unsure about the career path their children choose to pursue. Lack of knowledge and misconceptions about the trades can lead parents to steer their kids away from these programs, when vocational training might be a surer path to a stable job.

          Commodore 128 - Tentativa de Recuperação 2      Cache   Translate Page      
Após muito tempo com falta de tempo, volto a postar aqui para vocês, praticamente um ano depois do primeiro post ... o ano de 2012 foi complicado e tive de me afastar da retro-computação bem mais do que eu gostaria, mas estou de volta!

Pois bem, voltando ao assunto do Commodore 128, eu acabei comprando um outro pelo eBay, que demorou para chegar, eu acabei pagando imposto de 60% do valor que eu paguei no mesmo, fui taxado sem dó.

Qual não foi minha surpresa ao ligar o meu querido C128 recém chegado da gringolândia com um 1571, que o mesmo não funcionava ... ele reclamava não encontrar o dispositivo número 8, ou qualquer outro que eu configurava no drive, pois bem, encostei tudo durante alguns meses de reclusão.

No meio do caminho conversei com meu amigo do facebook Rogerio Kauer, por indicação do Marcus Vinicius Garret Chiado, da Videomagia, e acabou me dando algumas dicas, que por fim foram a solução matadora e golpe final para eu colocar meus dois bólidos da Commodore para funcionar novamente.

Primeiramente, falando no C128 recém chegado dos EUA, ele me indicou a observação dos diodos de pullup na serial mesmo.

E qual não foi minha agradável surpresa, que ao substituir os diodos (haviam dois em curto) o drive passou a ser imediatamente reconhecido.

Segue uma foto com os diodos que devem ser testados e substituídos, no caso o CR9 e o CR7, detalhe que nesta foto estão substituídos somente os dois primeiros diodos da esquerda para direita, pois esta é a placa que eu tirei para colocar no outro, e depois repus os diodos, a foto serve só como indicação para não fazer besteira na hora de trocar o diodo e consertar sua serial.


Feito isto, o C128 passou a reconhecer o dispositivo número 8 ou qualquer outro que se configura no 1571 e ler discos. Aí alguns exemplos para demonstrar minha alegria:




Donkey Kong devidamente carregado ... Sucesso!

Bom ... agora que resolvi o C128 mais recente que veio da gringolândia, faltou resolver o outro C128 ... aquele mesmo do post anterior a este!

Lembram, ele dava vídeo, mas aparentemente não lia a ROM, achei inclusive que fosse problema numa das ROMs, notei que não era pois peguei as ROMs e coloquei no C128 que já estava funcionando, e tudo correu normalmente.

Até que ao observar as RAMs, mais uma vez dica do Rogerio, percebi que havia uma que estava esquentando de maneira fora do normal, resolvi substituí-la, e não é que deu certo?! Vejam:

 A memória trocada foi a U39 ...

 Aqui o banco de memória completo (128k) ...

 Agora temos vídeo ...




Feito tudo isso, só resta acertar as ROMs.
Como o outro C128 que veio dos EUA, acompanhava um KIT do JyffyDOS, eu instalei neste micro, já que o outro estava OK com tudo funcionando já.
E funcionou perfeitamente, veja a instalação da JyffyDOS:



ROMs pocisionadas, e chave instalada no gabinete, ficou bom.

Por fim, segue foto do retificador que eu coloquei no lugar do original (um pouquinho SUPER SUPER SUPER DIMENSIONADO), mas funciona perfeitamente para a linha de 9VAC.


E aqui a chave fudebada que eu tive de recuperar, está funcionando OK agora também.


Com isso... temos dois C128 funcionando plenamente, seguem algumas outras fotos, depois posto mais assuntos sobre C128, como o SD2IEC que eu estou planejando fabricar algumas unidades, valeu pessoal!










          Pai agressor recorre ao facebook para encontrar a filha “desaparecida”      Cache   Translate Page      

Um homem fez uma publicação no facebook onde pedia ajuda a todos para encontrar a sua filha dada como desaparecida na zona do Porto.

Contudo, segundo avança o Jornal de Notícias, parece que a menor está a salvo com a mãe numa casa-abrigo, onde está refugiada pois era alvo de violência doméstica por parte do pai.

Na publicação feita este domingo, que já ficou viral com mais de 53 mil partilhas, o pai escreveu: “DESAPARECIDA PARTILHEM É MINHA FILHA”, juntamente com uma fotografia que deverá ser da filha. Contudo, várias pessoas aperceberam-se do caso e começaram a surgir publicações a avisar pela falsidade da publicação.

Os avós e tia maternos da menina mostraram-se indignados com este apelo falso do pai, e explicaram que a filha não está desaparecida nem corre nenhum perigo de vida. Segundo eles, a mãe está numa casa-abrigo para fugir a 18 anos de “espancamentos”.A publicação que já conta com mais de 2600 comentários e 50 mil partilhas começou por ter mensagens de solidariedade, que rapidamente evoluíram para hostilidade contra o pai da menina.

Segundo confirmado pelo o Jornal de Notícias junto do Gabinete de Apoio e Informação à Vítima da PSP, a mãe e a menor estão “em segurança e devidamente protegidas” no âmbito de um processo de violência doméstica iniciado há cerca de um mês.

          Bomberos demandarán al alcalde por llamarlos gordos      Cache   Translate Page      


 Rodolfo Hernández, alcalde de Bucaramanga, criticó la labor del Cuerpo de Bomberos de la ciudad, a través de su tradicional Facebook Live, luego de que un ciudadano se quejara porque no han desmontado unas vallas ilegales.

El mandatario llamó en vivo a la secretaria del Interior, Alba Navarro, quien le aseguró que los bomberos no tenían curso de altura por lo que no se ha podido realizar el desmonte. Inmediatamente, Hernández, llamó al director de Bomberos, Diego Rodríguez y le dijo “Diego es que tenemos que retirar unas vallas por orden de un juez, me dice Alba Azucena que usted dijo que no retiraba porque tenía una tanda de barrigones gordos allá de bomberos que no eran capaces de subirse ni al taburete”, enfatizó el alcalde.

Finalmente, aseguró, “¿qué vamos a pagar teniendo esos barrigones durmiendo todo el día? Tenemos los bomberos que le valen a la ciudadanía como $ 10.000 millones al año de personal y usted pasa por Bomberos, todos durmiendo y ganando horas extras, usted pasa a las 11 de la noche y los ronquidos despiertan a los muertos y pretenden contratar para hacer lo que podemos hacer nosotros”, aseguró Rodolfo Hernández.
Estas declaraciones no cayeron bien en los funcionarios del Cuerpo de Bomberos de Bucaramanga, quienes aseguraron que acusarán ante la Procuraduría al mandatario por referirse a ellos en esos términos.

“No es sorpresa que el alcalde se refiera a sus empleados con esos términos, porque siempre lo ha hecho así, no es extraño esa actitud, pero es grosera, descalificadora, malintencionada, las cosas no son así. Nosotros lo vamos a hacer con la Procuraduría, vamos a tratarlo en la junta directa directiva y vamos a sentar esa voz de protesta porque así no es. Es cierto que es el Alcalde, pero es un empleado igual que nosotros y nosotros merecemos respeto, así como merece él que lo respetemos nosotros", aseguró Fabio Larrota del sindicato de Bomberos.

Respecto al tema del curso de alturas, Larrota aseguró que el Cuerpo de Bomberos no necesita este tipo de cursos pues es ‘insignificante’ para la labor que ellos atienden: “los que tienen que tener ese curso de alturas son los empleados que ejercen otras funciones diferentes, nosotros no somos brigadas de emergencia ni empleados domésticos, nosotros trabajamos en casos extremos en los cuales no nos compete nada de curso de altura, tenemos un entrenamiento especial, ese curso de altura es insignificante para la labor de nosotros”, añadió Larrota.

Finalmente, le hizo la invitación a Rodolfo Hernández para que visite la estación y verifique que hay personal capacitado y dispuesto las 24 horas del día para atender las emergencias.

          This AI-enabled Chrome extension hides toxic comments to reduce your stress      Cache   Translate Page      

[USA], Mar 12 (ANI): Online is a big, bad world and not everyone can be thick skinned so as to overlook the trolls, negative comments or insults.

To make your online life slightly stress-free, a Google Chrome extension is taking the help of artificial intelligence.

The new Chrome extension, called Tune, automatically hides comments that its Perspective AI considers toxic. As Cnet reports, the tool works for comments on Reddit, Twitter, YouTube, and Disqus.

Developed by Alphabet’s Jigsaw, Tune’s Perspective AI learns to flag negative comments from thousands of people labelling millions of posts as spam, harassment or obscene content. Once a comment is identified as toxic, Tune can adjust the visibility of such comments.

Website moderators can choose from complete silence in ‘Zen Mode’ to viewing everything without any filter. You can further choose to adjust the comment based on the site. For instance, you can choose to disable the tool for Facebook and enable it for Reddit. (ANI)

          RELEASE BLITZ - Surprise, Baby! by Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam      Cache   Translate Page      



Title: Surprise, Baby!
Standalone Companion Novel to All About the D
Authors: Lex Martin & Leslie McAdam
Genre: Romantic Comedy/Adult Contemporary
Release Date: March 12, 2019



Blurb

There’s a fine line between lust and hate.

I don’t care that Drew Merritt spent the last year transforming himself from grungy slob to sexy playboy. With messy, dirty blond hair and gorgeous eyes, his looks aren’t the problem.

His mouth is.

And the stupid things that come out of it.

But after an emergency strands us together, and he does his damnedest to take care of me… 

Let’s just say there’s one thing we don’t clash on.

And it doesn’t involve talking.

I’ve despised Drew since I met him years ago. One weekend can’t change us that much, can it?

Spoiler alert: It doesn’t.

Except he left me a little keepsake.

And in nine months, I’ll have a surprise for Portland’s most notorious player.

Omg why have I not read Lex Martin and Leslie McAdam’s co written books before now, after reading the brilliant Surprise Baby I can’t believe they haven’t crossed my radar up until now. 
Im not  going to write a review that’s full of spoilers because I believe you need to pick this book up with no expectations you need to read the antics of Drew and Kendall first hand like I did and I know you will love this must read witty, funny, romantic package. 
An independent business woman and a reformed party animal with friends who know them better than they know themselves leads to all sorts surprises, this book has all the feels you want and need in a great read. I laughed, I swooned and at times I sighed but most importantly I loved watching these characters grow as their story unfolds, I loved the loyalty that this group of friends share and what about the sizzling chemistry wow that was seriously off the charts. All in all a great read that I would recommend to any romance lover. Can’t wait to read more from this very talented duo.




Why have I not Lex Martin Or Leslie McAdams before because I have to say that there was  nothing that I did not love about this book? If you haven’t yet had the pleasure of reading these two authors writing together, then do yourself a favour and check them out. I love frenemies to lovers stories and Surprise Baby ticked all the boxes for me. This was a fun, flirty, seriously romantic story that engaged me from the start. It also had it’s serious moments and Lex Martin and Leslie McAdams handle both the fun and the serious with equal amounts of skill.Drew is a reformed party boy, who literally had no choice but to drastically change his lifestyle overnight or suffer the consequences. Whilst Kendall is an accomplished business woman with her own company. They both rub each other up the wrong way constantly; all the while being secretly attracted to each other. When circumstances bring these two together you just know that sparks are going to explode and there may well be fireworks.This is a book that you need to read for yourselves, I’m not going to say anymore for fear of spoiling your enjoyment. All I will say is that the writing was exceptional and I loved this book.





Surprise, Baby is a fun, sweet romantic comedy and I enjoyed every minute of it! 
The characters are fun, the writing is fantastic and the circumstances they find themselves in keep the story entertaining! 
The history between Kendall and Drew has been complicated for sure, in that ‘I don’t really like you’ kind of way, but there is a fine line between love and hate as they will soon discover. Kendall sees Drew as an immature man whore and he sees her as a bit stuck up.

Marcus Moving in with my little sister's best friend isn't the brightest thing I've ever done. In fact, I'm pretty sure you can have me committed for accepting the offer.

BLURB:
Sloane has been on her share of dates. She just can’t seem to find the right guy to pop her virgin cherry. Sloane’s mother, a well-known sex guru, believes she’s suffering from a hostile vagina. Poor Sloane is beginning to believe her mother’s professional diagnosis is true. Except for one small detail... She’s been pining for her best friend’s brother, Oli, for the past decade. Sloane’s heart is set on the unattainable, sexy-as-sin hockey player. She would give up on her Oli fantasy if it weren’t for those constant heated glares and that one passionate kiss that set her world on fire confirming her hostile vagina is right. Oli is the man for the job. Problem is, Oli seems to have no intention of settling down and has clearly placed Sloane in the friend zone. When crisis strikes, Oli and Sloane end up trapped in a car, driving to Canada with a sweet puppy and a whole lot of chemistry. But when Oli realizes she’s a virgin, he wants to run to the farthest hills to get away from her. Sometimes happily-ever-after isn’t that easy... Butt Ending is a laugh-out-loud friends-to-lovers story. Get ready for foodgasms, dirty talk, and one heck of a sexy alpha-male hockey player.





Butt Ending is book 2 in the Big Stick Series but it can certainly be read and loved as a stand-alone, I know this because I haven’t read book 1 as yet but I will be back tracking and reading it as soon as time permits. If you love sports romance and romantic comedy Butt Ending is a must read.
Sloane Carmichael should be off limits for many reasons the first being she is my  twin sisters best friend and second I don’t do relationships so why does she make my heart race.
Oli Russell vowed when he lost his parents hat no one would ever feel the way he felt and he would never put a significant other through that but a road trip with Sloane has him feeling emotional.
Can friends become lovers will this fun couple cross lines that will change both their futures.....
This book has it all, it was funny, it was passionate and this author created the perfect banter between all of her characters. This author is new to me but I’m telling you now that’s about to change, I have no idea why she hasn’t crossed my radar before now because I loved everything about Butt Ending and I’m looking forward to reading more from this talented author.



I know most people will find this hard to believe but R.C. Stephens is a new author to me.
Although this is the second book in the series I had no issues reading as a stand alone.., although I will bow seek out book one as soon as I can.
Butt Ending is a friends to lovers story that had me enchanted from the first chapter. Sloane has had the hots for her best friend's brother Oli for a long time. Oli is an extremely successful and hot hockey player who really has no intention of settling down any time soon.
Sloane wants Oli to be her first but when Oli finds out she is a virgin he wants to run. I fell hard and fast for both Sloane and Oli and Chance the dog is just too cute not to mention.
Butt Ending is full of great chemistry, some angst and altogether is a great read.


About R.C. Stephens:
As far back as R.C. Stephens can remember she was a sucker for a good romance. Of course there had to be a prince charming even if he ultimately was a dark knight and there had to be a happy ending. She watched the movie Dirty Dancing way too many times growing up and Jean Claude Van Damme movies too. Go figure! After years of saying she would write a book one day, she finally put pen to paper and carved out the plot line for what would eventually become the best selling Twisted Series. Now R.C. is just finishing up her tenth book and can’t seem to stop the stories running through her mind. Visit R.C. on her Facebook page to find out what’s new in her life and what releases she has coming up.

          Orion the Beautiful - Black and White Cat Love      Cache   Translate Page      
*Blows dust off blog*  Whew!  *Cough cough*  Where HAVE I been?  I've nearly updated a hundred times and utterly failed.  I'm thinking of switching over to a Facebook page instead since they are so much easier to update and more connected. 

So, enough with lame excuses.  I'm going to post a few updates since I have a backlog of ideas, pictures and items to show off.  I just wanted to crack the ice and maybe show a few pictures of my cat.  I know, a terrible stereotype to show cat pictures, but I wanted to show just a few very pretty pictures of Orion to show how he's grown - he's a year and a half old now.



 
I named him Orion because he was such a good little hunter and played fetch with a sock as a little kitten and most of all as he had dark gray hair that made a little belt at his middle before turning to black.  Now it is all black and white fur - no belt at all.  And all that fuzzy kitten hair turned sleek and super soft fine fur.

 

 

Orion and the Giant Lobster:

 
 
 
I bought this big stuffed lobster from the Boston Aquarium ages ago and I put it on my bed in the summers sometimes - Orion took an instant liking to it - he cuddles with it all the time.  Guess it isn't going anywhere.



This is Orion's kitten - a little black and white stuffed animal my Aunt sent last Christmas - he luvs it.
  He kicks it and bites it and then licks it all over like a real kitten  It's hilarious and sweet to watch.  But sometimes he just cuddles with it.  Aww.



And because Halloween will be soon - apparently he's going as a Vampire this year...


 
I love this pic, just happened to catch him mid yawn and it's amazing.
 
Next post will be un-cat related.  Promise.

          Crónica del Punishers III      Cache   Translate Page      
Superó ampliamente las expectativas el nivel de competencia que se presentó en Punishers III. Terribles peleas con todos los condimentos. Nocauts y peleas que no superaban los dos rounds fueron el postre para la velada profesional mas esperada de Argentina que se presenta como vidriera internacional para los peleadores de elite.

El Punishers del 2012 se llevó a cabo el pasado 25 de noviembre en el porteño barrio de Flores. La velada comenzó poco antes de las 20:00 hs con peleas de alto calibre. Con un card impecable , ya las peleas previas fueron muy buenas, con un alto nivel de competencia.

La presentación del evento estuvo matizada por algo que no se había visto anteriormente en eventos de esta categoría: dos guerreros de las Cruzadas, representados por el grupo A.R.M.E. (Asociación Recreacionista Medieval Escandinava), blandieron sus espadas y escudos en una lucha que levantó el fervor del público presente. Estuvieron acompañados por la música en vivo de Adrián Chiapin, quien por segunda vez consecutiva tocó el tema característico de Punishers (Contender Theme), esta vez con acordes alusivos a las batallas épicas, todo esto dio el pie para el ingreso de los competidores que protagonizarían la velada.

Previa
Waldo González vs Nelson Castell, kickboxing 3 rounds 2x1
Pelea que arrancó pareja y se fue inclinando con el paso de los rounds para el competidor de Rosario. Si bien Castell fue certero en sus golpes, la continuidad y el constante asedio de González lo dejó ganador en las tarjetas por fallo unánime.

Diego González vs Marcos Brizuela, kickboxing 3 rounds 2x1 Combate técnico para Brizuela, que dejó sin herramientas a González, por más que éste intentó. La guardia cerrada del peleador de Banfield, sumada a las combinaciones efectivas de manos y piernas lo dejaron ganador por la mínima diferencia en las tarjetas en fallo dividido.

Alejandro Rodríguez vs Maximiliano Videla, kickboxing 3 rounds 2x1 Pelea que no se definió para ninguno, si bien Videla propuso, a la hora del combate el Kolo Rodríguez fue más efectivo. La pelea se fue desluciendo con el avance de los rounds, varios golpes bajos y técnicas anti reglamentarias no dejaron brillar lo mejor de ambos competidores. El fallo unánime fue para Rodríguez.


Estelares
Titulo Argentino WKF de Muaythai hasta 67.000 kilos, 5 rounds 3 x1.5

Braian Allevato vs Iván Ferrero
Pelea que arrancó con ritmo, pareja y de estudio en el primero y que poco a poco fue llevando Allevato a su terreno. El dominio del clinch, los arrojes y la suma de rodillas y codos lo dejaban como ganador en el primero. Por su parte, Ferrero buscaba y no encontraba la fórmula que lo dejara con un golpe ganador en este round. En el segundo round cambió la actitud de ambos, Ferrero salió a buscar incansablemente la pelea y se encontró con la respuesta de Allevato en la zona baja del estómago, donde clavó 3 frontales consecutivas dejando sin aire y sin respuesta al peleador del Don Team. El fallo fue ganador por KOT en el segundo asalto y Campeón Argentino en Muaythai hasta 67 kilos: Braian Allevato.


Titulo Argentino WKF de Kickboxing mas de 92.000 kilos, 7 rounds 2x1

Lucas Alsina vs Nicolás Castelli
Pelea que comenzó áspera, ¡cómo se pegaron estos muchachos! De ida y vuelta en los primeros cruces, Alsina hizo sentir su derecha frente a un Castelli que arrancó desorientado y que luego de dos caídas en el primero y de levantarse como un Búfalo comenzó a llevar la pelea y darla vuelta en los siguientes rounds. Si bien no alcanzaba, su actitud no era de abandonar, así fueron los tres primeros rounds hasta que en el cuarto asalto una mano potente de Alsina lo dejó campeón ante un Castelli que dio todo pero se vio superado por el competidor del Picante Fight Club. Ganador y nuevo Campeón Argentino modalidad Kickboxing categoría más de 92 kilos: Lucas Alsina.


Titulo Argentino WKF de Kickboxing hasta 63.500 kilos, 7 rounds 2x1

Alejandro Juárez vs Christian Guido
Sin ningún tipo de explicación ni aviso Alejandro Juárez no se presentó a su pelea lo que dejó ganador a Christian Guido. Habitualmente 2K9-WKF no entrega el cinturón de campeón sin que se realice la pelea, pero debido a que Guido fue campeón hasta su segunda defensa de la modalidad K1-Rules y cumplió con todos los pasos y el puntaje correspondiente para clasificar, se le entregó el Cinturón de Campeón Argentino modalidad Kick Boxing categoría hasta 63,500 kilos.
Alejandro Juárez recibe una sanción por no presentarse a su pelea ni avisar, perdiendo los puntos obtenidos hasta el momento dejándolo sin chance de disputar títulos durante el 2013.


Superfigth MMA, 3 rounds 5x1
Marcos Cornejo (Argentina) vs Bruno Machado (Brasil)
Pelea que no llegó al minuto y donde Cornejo se lució como striker. En los primeros segundos buscó a su rival de arriba y Machado buscó tumbarlo; en un descuido del brasilero, Cornejo insertó de lleno una rodilla en la mandíbula de Machado que lo dejó desorientado y sentido sobre el ring, rematándolo con un codo descendente que dejó tendido y sin respuesta al competidor brasilero pasando solo 40 segundos del primer asalto. Ganador por KO: Marcos Cornejo.

Superfigth Muaythai 5 rounds 3x1.5

Gonzalo Díaz Arredondo vs Matias Álvarez
Pelea de ida y vuelta no apta para cardiacos. Por momentos se inclinaba para un lado y por momento para el otro. Peleón de estos dos guerreros que dejaron todo sobre el ring. El Poke tomó la iniciativa, pero el Toro no se quedaba atrás, se devolvía golpe por golpe. En el transcurso de los rounds el cansancio comenzó a hacer mella en los dos, pero en cada round la diferencia fue mínima para Álvarez, que se vio sorprendido en alguna oportunidad por una mano caliente de Arredondo que llegaba a estremecerlo, pero como se vio, el Poke es durísimo. Terrible pelea, el ganador Álvarez en las tarjetas en decisión unánime.
Titulo Argentino WKF de Muaythai hasta 63.500 kilos, 5 rounds 3 x1.5

Juan Allevato vs Edgardo Cuenca ¡Pelea con historia! En la primera vuelta, Allevato había vencido a Cuenca en un cruce para el infarto y la revancha no podía ser de otra manera. Pelea que comenzó terrible y que no duró más de un round. Cuenca salió con una estrategia diferente a la pelea anterior, lo que le valió sumar puntos en los primeros segundos; en tanto Allevato controló la envestida y sacó más de un golpe demoledor. Así empezó la pelea.
Al minuto del primero, en un cruce de codos cayeron los dos al suelo como si hubiera sido un doble KO, a los pocos segundos Cuenca insertó un codo detrás de la oreja de Allevato provocándole un corte y que perdiera el equilibrio, no pudiendo seguir.  Ganador y Campeón Argentino de la categoría: Edgardo Cuenca.


Superfigth K1-rules – COPA PUNISHERS LODRA, 4 rounds 3x1

Nicolás Ryske (Argentina) vs Alessandro Benacci (Brasil)
Con todas peleas buenas la noche no podía cerrar de manera diferente. Se vio a un Ryske muy concentrado, con toda la energía puesta en la pelea y dispuesto a llevarse la copa al PFC. La contienda comenzó de estudio. Nicolás dominó el centro del ring y poco dejó hacer a Benacci, que buscó impactar con algún directo al Picante. Pasado el minuto, un certero Low dejó tendido a Benacci sin poder levantarse, quedando la victoria por KO para Argentina.


***
Además, una ring girl de lujo, Laura Lim, acompañó cada una de las peleas para beneplácito del público masculino. El equipo de trabajo que acompañó la gala e hizo posible que todo fuera una fiesta estuvo integrado por: Rodolfo Arce (Arbitro), los jueces Sergio López, Yesica Duarte, José Almirón y Luis Almirón, los colaboradores Matías Vitale, Matías Suárez, Mariana Aran y su hija, Gustavo Mazzuchelli y Alejandro Vieira, el apoyo de las empresas Lodra, Timers para Entrenamientos y Bull’s. La organización y fiscalización estuvo a cargo 2K9, World Kick Boxing Federation presidida por Carlos Suárez.

Así cerró el circuito profesional de 2K9 este 2012, con peleas de alto voltaje y con una gran inyección de adrenalina en los espectadores. Para quienes se lo perdieron o quienes quieren revivirlo, se realizará una transmisión online de la gala durante el mes de diciembre que se anunciará oportunamente. Las peleas podrán verse exclusivamente por Internet mediante suscripción. En el 2013 será el turno de PUNISHERS IV: “Más allá de la razón”, donde una nueva generación de peleadores buscará estar entre los mejores de la Argentina.

          A Tale Of Two Dollar Stores      Cache   Translate Page      
Dollar stores — they sell everything from holiday decorations to groceries to Skittles-scented candles. The business proposition: a grab bag of items for a dollar (or around a dollar). These stores thrived during the financial crisis, but their success in the post-Recession era has been a mixed bag. Dollar General and Family Dollar (now owned by Dollar Tree), two of the dollar store titans, have been at the center of this. These companies each took a bet: whether they could grow their businesses by keeping everything priced at $1, or by leaving the dollar behind. Music by Drop Electric . Find us: Twitter / Facebook .

          March Madness: Britain Leaving The EU      Cache   Translate Page      
Britain's official deadline to leave the EU is on March 29. Tomorrow, there's another vote on Prime Minister Theresa May's plan to leave the EU. But if that doesn't pass, that puts the UK on a path for a "hard Brexit," where Britain leaves the EU with no special deal in place. In that case, Britain and the EU's trade would go back to the World Trade Organization's default rules governing all trade, without special agreements. Leaving the EU is unprecedented, but leaving a large trading bloc is not. Today on The Indicator, we look at what Brexit and the former state of Czechoslovakia have (or had) in common.

          L'abbaye de LONGUES SUR MER va recevoir la manne de Stéphane BERN      Cache   Translate Page      

C'est aux dernières nouvelles le seul monument historique normand sélectionné pour recevoir la précieuse manne du nouveau tirage du très apprécié loto du Patrimoine lancé par Stéphane BERN...

L'ancienne abbaye bénédictine de Longues située dans le Bessin (Calvados) non loin des plages du Débarquement va recevoir quelques secours financiers bienvenus car ce qui reste de l'ancienne abbatiale menace de s'effondrer:

image_content_24993843_20190311182553

Le chœur de l’église de l’abbaye Sainte-Marie au centre du projet de la Mission Stéphane Bern

Patrimoine. Une abbaye de 850 ans dans le Calvados a été sélectionnée par la Mission pour la sauvegarde du patrimoine en péril. Le chœur de son église devrait être rénové d’ici 2021.

Depuis le XIIe siècle et pendant 600 ans, des moines ont arpenté ses couloirs de pierre de Caen. Aujourd’hui, l’abbaye Sainte-Marie à Longues-sur-Mer, dans le Calvados, est sélectionnée par la Mission pour la sauvegarde du patrimoine en péril, animée par Stéphane Bern. Une nouvelle accueillie avec « beaucoup de joie » par la copropriétaire de l’ancienne abbaye bénédictine, Isabelle d’Anglejan. « Ça nous a donné un élan et beaucoup de courage pour continuer ce projet assez lourd », confie-t-elle.

Classé monument historique, le site abrite un réfectoire, une maison abbatiale, plusieurs jardins et une église. Détruite pendant la Révolution française avant d’être confiée à des fermiers par l’évêque de Bayeux, afin d’éviter les pillages - la chapelle avait alors servi de boulangerie - l’abbaye a ensuite été rachetée par un Américain, en 1932. Suite au décès de son épouse, la demeure est alors revendue à la famille d’Anglejan, en 1964. Cette dernière continue, depuis, à rénover les lieux.

Le chœur de l’église est à présent au centre de l’attention : menacé d’écroulement, il nécessite des fonds que la famille d’Anglejan n’a jamais pu rassembler. Après la tentative d’un financement participatif, c’est finalement la Drac (Direction régionale des affaires culturelles), qui les contacte il y a quelques semaines, pour annoncer qu’une sélection à la Mission de Stéphane Bern est possible. « Un projet inespéré, c’est complètement dingue », n’en revient toujours pas la copropriétaire. L’abbaye a été sélectionnée parmi dix-huit autres projets en France métropolitaine et Outre-mer.

Priorité à la rénovation de l’église

La rénovation devrait se dérouler en deux phases. Une première étape sera consacrée à la façade occidentale et à la restitution de la toiture sur l’ancien chœur de l’église. La deuxième partie concernera, entre autres, l’intérieur de l’Église, notamment les vitraux, mais aussi le réfectoire.

Chaque année l’abbaye accueille 1 500 visiteurs en moyenne et 3 000 l’année dernière, alors qu’elle fêtait ses 850 ans. La famille d’Anglejan prévoit la même affluence cette année à l’occasion des 75 ans de la fin de la Seconde Guerre mondiale. Au programme : expositions, concerts et l’intervention d’historiens et artistes pour contribuer au « rayonnement » du secteur, rôle notamment exigé par la Mission Stéphane Bern.

À noter : l’entrée est désormais gratuite pour les gens du village – cinq euros pour les autres. Isabelle d’Anglejan ne connaît pas encore le montant accordé par le ministère, cependant une collecte a déjà été lancée par la famille l’année dernière (à retrouver sur le site de la Mission), dont la moitié a déjà été récolté.

          Drowning Out Hate      Cache   Translate Page      
Costume-clad kazoo players and drummers jubilantly respond to the Westboro Baptist Church.

Virginia Richmond, 31, drove an hour and a half Monday morning to attend her first-ever rally. The Spotsylvania resident traveled solo to the Virginia State Capitol to join a crowd of “counterpartiers” and to stand up to members of the Westboro Baptist Church, who invited themselves to Richmond.

The Kansas-based hate group, known for taking its inflammatory anti-LGBTQ rhetoric on the road to insist that things like natural disasters occur because “God hates fags,” announced a couple weeks ago that it would gather outside the Capitol to protest the existence of Delegate Danica Roem, D-Manassas, Virginia’s first-and-only openly transgender legislator.

It didn’t take long for local musician Randy Blythe, frontman of the well-known metal band Lamb of God and friend of Roem’s, to take notice. On Friday afternoon, Blythe sent out a call to “all freaks, weirdos, misfits and regular people of good conscience,” encouraging them to show up Monday morning for a counterparty. The announcement was clear that the event was a celebration, not a counter-protest, “because that would entail arguing with these idiots (which is USELESS).”

“I just really wanted to stand up for LGBT rights and for Danica,” Richmond says after the event ended and people wearing tutus, Halloween masks and rainbow hats began to disperse. “I just really wanted to get involved somehow because she’s special, you know. She deserves to be an elected official without Westboro coming and bashing her. It’s just wrong.”

About a half-dozen members of the Westboro Baptist Church arrived at the Capitol a little before 9 a.m., bearing signs with phrases like “God made you male or female. Be content and obey him.” Meanwhile hundreds of others held multicolored poster board with “Queer Jesus loves us more” and “God = Love” written in bright block letters. The atmosphere was overwhelmingly joyful: Blythe conducted while folks hummed away on fluorescent kazoos and drummed on upside-down plastic buckets, and a demonstrator strutting around in an Elvis outfit won the costume contest. The Westboro members scampered off the grounds before 9:30 a.m.

“We crushed them,” Blythe told Style afterward in a text message. “Total success.”

“It was very exhilarating,” Richmond says. “It felt good. It felt like it was for the right reason. It wasn’t just show up and party, it was directed totally toward Westboro, and it was just exciting.”

For Richmond, this demonstration was personal. She recently left a church that she describes as suppressive and “even cultlike,” and a couple months later she came out to her friends and some family members as bisexual.

As she pauses to consider a question, a fellow participant in the counterparty breezes past her on the sidewalk and declares “May they burn in hell where they belong” with a knowing nod. Richmond grins.

“I’m just ready to tell the world that it’s not right to treat gay people, trans or bisexual people like they’re scum,” Richmond says. “They’re just like everyone else.”

On March 1, Roem posted to Facebook: “My response to the Westboro Baptist Church protesting my existence — and please use this quote in its entirety as I put the amount of thought the situation warrants into it: ‘Meh.’” She also encouraged supporters to donate to her re-election campaign, which she promoted with the hashtag #WestboroBackfire.

As of Monday, March 11, Roem had raised more than $30,000. According to a Facebook post, the donations came from more than 850 people from all 50 states and Washington. She describes it as “an incredible display of people power as every single one of those donations came from individual human beings — not organizations, PACs or other entities.”

Patrick, Le problème reste entier dans les deux cas, que le filtre s'exerce avant publication ou qu'il s'exerce à travers une censure après la publication, le résultat est le même pour celui ou celle qui souhaite exprimer une idée. Dans les deux cas, il est une obligation pour les GAFAMs de gérer les cas douteux et de mener une action en fonction de certains critères qui leurs sont propres, et donc forcément subjectifs. Faire le choix d'agir à posteriori est dangereux. Si une publication est problématique, la laisser être diffusée, même quelques instants seulement sur Facebook ou Youtube, fait qu'elle pourra être reprise par d'autres acteurs sans contrôle et faire le tour de l'internet ad vitam aeternam. Le mal est déjà fait ... Ces sociétés sont amenées à faire des choix éthiques qui décevront, heurteront, voire choqueront une partie du monde. C'est inéluctable. Je suis d'accord avec ta dernière phrase, c'est un constat clair : il n'y a pas de solution évidente qui fera que tout le monde sera content. Faut-il ne rien changer pour autant et laisser libres ces acteurs de mener des actions contradictoires sur le plan éthique en fonction de la région du monde dans lequel ils exercent avec comme seul critère de respecter "plus ou moins" les lois en vigueur ? Ce sont des sujets bien compliqués et je ne doute pas que ces sociétés essaient de faire au mieux, mais pour autant il subsistent encore de nombreux travers aux usages actuels. Laisse moi à mon tour poser la question au jeune père de famille que tu es : Autoriseras-tu à ton enfant lorsqu'il aura 12 ans l'utilisation d'une application comme Twitter dans laquelle la majorité écrasante des commentaires utilisateurs ne sont qu'insultes, comme le moteur de recherche Google grâce auquel il est possible de trouver en un clique l'ensemble du catalogue pornographique d'internet sans contrainte d'âge (en dehors de contrôle parental, non fourni par Google, que tu auras installé sur les PC de ta famille), comme Facebook sur lequel des commentaires ou photos dégradants de ou sur ton enfant pourront être publiés quelques minutes par n'importe qui en espérant que Facebook réagisse vite pour les supprimer ? J'en suis pour ma part très bientôt à cette étape et cette réflexion, mon fils aîné à 11 ans :-) Et je t'assure que, pour ma part, toute solution susceptible de ne pas l'exposer à ce genre de travers serait bonne à discuter, à débattre. Evidemment, il convient à chacun de faire son devoir de parent et d'éduquer ses enfants aux bonnes pratiques sur ces outils, leur expliquer les risques et les règles d'éthiques à respecter, s'assurer qu'ils se protègent et qu'ils protègent les autres d'excès ou d'abus potentiels. Cependant les adolescents se réfugient naturellement toujours vers des plateformes ou des supports qui échappent à leurs parents, on ne peut donc pas tout contrôler et comprendre en tant que parent. C'est pour cela que la responsabilité première revient aux diffuseurs de contenu surtout quand ils sont aussi facilement accessibles et populaires que les services des GAFAMs. Il ne faut pas relâcher la pression qui pèse sur ces acteurs, leur pouvoir et responsabilité sont immenses et ne cessent encore de croître.

Le filtre à priori pose d'énormes problèmes aussi, que je ne détaillerai pas ici, mais qui mettent en péril des concepts qui nous sont chers ; ça pose ces sociétés en gardiens de ce qu'on peut et ne peut pas dire, et si leur éthique (voir plus bas) ne correspond pas à la notre, alors on est dans une certaine mesure contrôlés par ces sociétés privées... Quand à "leur" éthique, j'en reviens au coeur du débat : s'ils décident qu'on ne peut pas montrer de corps trop dénudés, parce que leur manière de voir les choses est plus proche du puritanisme américain (combien de fois avons nous eu des soucis pour des images ou on voyait des "bouts de seins" ont été retirées alors qu'elles ne choquent pas notre conscience à nous - et ils ont du changer leur politique face à la levée de bouclier que ça a provoqué ici), est-ce qu'on sera satisfait de voir Facebook censurer des pubs pour yaourts ou parfums ou produits de beauté parfaitement acceptables chez nous ? C'est une vraie question que je te pose. Et ça c'est la version "pas tragique" des problèmes que ça peut poser... "Leur éthique" ne s'établit pas en dehors des conceptions locales ; une fois décidée, si elle s'applique pareil partout, il y a forcément des gens qui trouveront ça inacceptable. C'est simple en théorie, mais en pratique ça ne peut pas donner "une solution pour tout le monde et tout le monde est content"...

          Show Your Creativity with These Graduation Invitations      Cache   Translate Page      
Students everywhere are looking forward to graduation, and now is the time to be thinking about invitations. As I read through this, I couldn't help but think that it sounds like a great option for creating some personalized invitations you're sure to love:
One of the most wonderful things we can do in life is to be creative. Connecting to our creative sides helps us reconnect with our inner child and can help us feel renewed. Creating and designing is exciting and fulfilling. Our minds are stimulated and engaged. When we have finished designing something, we feel ready to turn our attention to our less creative and inspiring to-do lists again.

It can be difficult to find time to be creative, however. A few weeks ago, I had to help a friend start preparing for her college graduation. It was a very stressful time for both of us. I had graduated the semester before and was frantically looking for a job to pay the bills. My friend had finals and projects to work on. She also really wanted to send out graduation invitations. Initially, I didn’t think this would be a good idea. We were both stressed to the max, and I didn’t think we could find the time to take photos and design invitations.

My friend was adamant, however, and we found a way. One of our friends is majoring in photography, and she agreed to take pictures of my friend for free. It was great going out and shooting the photos. We both felt a huge rush of relief being outside and just having fun.

Then we had to find a stationery company to print our cards. We looked at dozens of websites, but we finally settled on Basic Invite. My friend and I really liked their simple graduation invitations. They are pretty and elegant, and they match my friend’s personality really well. Searching through all of Basic Invite’s graduation announcements was another great way for my friend and me to relax.


Once we chose the invite (the Gemstone Grad Graduation Announcements, above, for those of you who were wondering) we got to the fun part. Basic Invite lets you customize your invitations. You can choose the colors you want your invites to be, from blue to red to yellow, and anything in between. Many of their invitations even have foil options. All of their foil is available in either gold, silver, or rose gold. You can also choose if you want your foil to be raised or not.

Designing the invitations was a joy. It felt great to let our imaginations run wild and come up with the craziest color combos. We had trouble deciding between a couple different color combinations, so we decided to have Basic Invite print out a few samples to help us come to a decision. The samples arrived in the mail a few days later, and we were able to decide which one looked better IRL and chose the paper quality we liked best.

Once we settled on the color scheme, we went to print our order. Basic Invite has over 40 different envelope colors to choose from, and we were able to choose envelopes that matched my friend’s invites perfectly. We also took advantage of their address capturing service. My friend shared a link to her Facebook and Instagram profiles and had all her friends and family input their addresses. Their info was saved on my friend’s Basic Invite account. We selected the option to upload the addresses to the envelopes, and just like that, the hardest part of sending out announcements was finished. And, the envelopes are peel and seal, so we didn’t have to worry about eating gross envelope glue when we mailed the invites out.

If simple grad invites aren’t your thing, you might take a look at some rustic graduation invitations or these Hollywood graduation invitations. Our photography major friend can’t wait to use those when she graduates next year!

 

For anyone who needs invitations printed out, but doesn’t feel like they have the time, I really recommend Basic Invite. I think taking the time out of your day to do something both productive and creative will be a big help to you emotionally. You’ll feel better after creating something unique and beautiful, and if you need to get invites anyway, you might as well kill two birds with one stone, right? I hope you can reconnect with yourself and knock something off your to-do list by grabbing a few invitations from Basic Invite. You won’t regret it.


Right now Basic Invite is offering 15% off with coupon code: 15FF51

          What's Up Wednesday #20      Cache   Translate Page      
Well it's been a long time since I posted on here, over 3 years. I think it's about time to revive the page and use it for what it was created for. Rather than creating posts on Facebook, which wile it was easy lacked the ability to post a story with pictures in the right place and made it difficult for me to relate to the pictures used in each post.

Well back to what's happening now...

This is the continuation of my weekly posts on Facebook (hence why it's starting at 20). While I'll be sharing the posts on Facebook the details will be here.

So what have I been working on this week?
I have finished my Imperial fighters for Star Wars Armada with a few alternate paint schemes to represent elite squadrons...
These will be added to the two core boxes worth of Tie Fighters that I painted years ago.
But as I had an awful lot of Tie Fighters that I would probably never use all of them in a game I decided to do this...
Darth Vader's squadron! It made more sense to me to have him flanked by two Tie Fighters as he was in a New Hope. So what did I do after this did I start my Rebel Fighters so that I could start playing this great game?

Of course not! Like most wargamers I get distracted very easily and started painting my Fleet Troopers that have been sat primed on my painting table for quite some time.
I got the main colours blocked in. This was done in a very productive late Sunday night painting session. The Fleet Troopers as you can tell are not painted in film accurate colours as I felt this would look out of place with the rest of my army. So I'm going to continue with these guys it's and hopefully have them finished for next week's post. Until then stay safe people.

Thanks

          Painting Update - Part 5      Cache   Translate Page      
A bit of a break from Nurgle this week, to show some of the progress made with my Tyranids. First up, a winged Hive Tyrant.
The weapon is a twin-linked devourer, made from spare gaunt and warrior / tyrant arms and weapons. I have seen other conversions of this weapon that use the fleshborer hive arms (legs?) from the Tervigon / Tyrannofex kit, however I wanted my version to still be a recognisable version of the original weapon, simply up-scaled.

The bone armour plates were painted using my usual coats of red, white markings, red ink and gloss varnish. It is quite time consuming but I'm always pleased with the results - particularly with the bigger creatures!
 
 
To create the base, several pieces of cork tile were ripped up and layered on top of each other. The model was then pinned through the tail to the base.
Well, that's all from me today. Please let us know what you think through the comments or on our Facebook page.

          Painting Update - Part 2      Cache   Translate Page      
Time for another painting update, and more Nurgle bikers. First up, the squad champion.
 The power scythe was made from the handle of a large power axe and a plasticard blade. I decided to have this bike rearing up on one wheel as it looked more impressive that way when I was gluing it together.
 The champion's body was another from the Forge World Plague Marine upgrade set.
Next up, a squad member with melta gun. This was also the first model I tried the rust effect on.
 And finally, a shot of the whole squad. The only things left to finish are the bases. For these, I want to go for a red 'mars' effect. Any suggestions would be welcomed! An attempt at this can be seen on part of the champion's base, but I'm not sure whether I like how it turned out.

As usual, comments are welcome, either here or on our Facebook page. That's all for now,

Prospero

It has been quite a while since I last posted anything, and there have been lots of projects underway during that time! Over the next couple of weeks, I'll be going through the (many) things I've been working on.
So lets start with my Nurgle Chaos Space Marines. These were started over 2 years ago, but this is the first time I've shown any here. First up is the Lord on bike.
 The body is from the Forge World Plague Marine set, but with a head-swap as I felt he'd do better at issuing orders without his jaw hanging off! This did however leave a fleshy lump on his neck, which I decided to leave and simply paint it to look sore / diseased.

 The back-banner was a spare from a standard squad box, with the pole supporting it made from a bit of sprue.
With this army, I have been practising painting rust. The new(ish) technical paints have been a great help with this, and I've been pretty pleased with the results!

Well, that's it for now, but there's much more coming over the next few days / weeks. As usual, let us know what you think in the comments or on our facebook page!

Prospero.

[…] When tech Unicorn startups, like Uber, finally go public, they will likely be worth over $100 billion, putting at least $10 million in stock for every early employee, advisor, and investor. In addition to the startup ecosystem, the real estate landscape will also be affected. Back in 2004, Google’s IPO played a role in the 11% increase in prices in the San Francisco and Bay Area. The economic success of the region, especially it’s recovery after the great financial crisis, has generally tended to push prices up. Another example is Facebook. It’s IPO helped its employees make significant down payments on mortgages and early employees invested in more than one single-family homes. While Facebook chose a historically poor area for its HQ, the prices of the neighboring Palo Alto and Menlo Park went soaring after the company went public. […]

Szövegeivel naponta találkozol: szórakoztat és tájékoztat, befolyásolja választásodat. Arca számos, neve titkos, közben lehet, hogy ismerőseid között találod. Interjúm Kovács Andrea hivatásos szövegíróval.


Kérlek, mutasd be magad, mióta foglalkozol szellemírással és annak mely válfajával!

Egy nagyon kacskaringós út minimum három fontos lépése szerepet játszik abban, hogy úgymond fizetett béríróvá lett Kovács Andrea, aki sokadik tucat ezen a néven, kizárólag a maga idejének az ura és sárkányjellemű őrzője.
Papírral igazolható, tanult szakmám szerint általános ápoló és asszisztens vagyok, ám 1999 óta nem dolgoztam betegágy mellett. Többször elhagytam az egészségügyi pályát, ez idő alatt kipróbáltam magam nehézgéplakatos műhelyben többtonnás húzópréseken és ponthegesztőgépen. Dolgoztam számítógépgyárban és én lettem a szalagsor királynője; voltam napszámos és takarítónő is, valamint vidéki kocsmában pultos. Ez utóbbi az első fontos lépés, ami arra az útra terelt, amin most járok.
Az első kéziratom csírája is itt született 2008-ban a kocsmapulton, egy végtelenül unalmas és forró, júniusi vasárnap délután. Még a kocsma is az ürességtől kongott, nemcsak az utcák, így volt időm tanulni. Akkoriban éppen az volt a fixa ideám, hogy gyermekkori vágyamat beteljesítve megtanulok japánul és nagy vehemenciával neki is láttam, ám a forróság miatt nem tudtam koncentrálni, és egyszer csak azon kaptam magamat, hogy hiraganák és katakanák helyett rendkívül csúnya, ám nagyon is latin betűket formázok egy kockás füzetbe szörnyekről, varázslókról, gnómokról és egy különleges képességekkel rendelkező kislányról.
Japánul nem tanultam meg végül és a fantasy történetet sem fejeztem be. Csendesen lapul a PC-memóriában, ám nagyon fontos szerepe van abban, hogy végül az írás lett az életformám.
Akkoriban ugyanis annyit tudtam a számítógépekről, hogy egy velem párhuzamosan létező világ eszközei. És pont. Igen ám, de a történetecském körmölésébe időközben belezsibbadtam és a második spirálfüzet betelte után úgy döntöttem, hogy ez nem mehet így tovább, meg kell tanulnom gépelni. Elmentem hát a falu könyvtárába - akkoriban Kalocsa mellett éltem egy alig ezerfős településen - kifizettem a számítógép- és internethasználati díjat két órára előre, majd ráböktem az egérre és megkérdeztem, hogy mi az és hogyan kell használni.
Most pedig, cirka tizenegy évvel később az autodidakta elsajátított felhasználói ismereteimből, digitális készségeim folyamatos fejlesztéséből, az internetből és abból élek, hogy piszok gyorsan tudok gépelni három ujjal, valamint fékezhetetlen habzású fantáziámat és kutatószenvedélyemet mások szolgálatába állítom.
A második fontos lépés, az volt, hogy cirka másfél évig egy kiadónál is dolgoztam kommunikációsként. A munkakörömhöz az is hozzátartozott, hogy a kiadó online felületeire is kellett cikkeket írnom, valamint a kiadó magazinjában kaptam egy rovatot.
A harmadik fontos momentum, ami a “munkaköri szövegírás” felé terelt az, hogy call centerben is dolgoztam, mint telefonos értékesítő. Ebből azt tanultam meg, hogy az értékesítői vénám ugyan száraz, mint a Szaharában fújdogáló szél - legalábbis élőszóban- de a kollégáim a fejemből random kipattanó szófordulataimmal gazdagítják a céges scripteket, tehát valami érzékem azért mégiscsak van ahhoz, hogy vonzóvá varázsoljam az emberek számára mások termékeit és szolgáltatásait.
Röviden – és tényleg ez a rövid verzió, mert kihagytam az SFportalt, az SFblogot, az Avanát, a bloggermúltamat, stb… – így jutottam el odáig, hogy ma már értékesítéstámogató tartalommarketinggel, ezen belül szövegírással és még ezen belül jellemzően szellemírással foglalkozom egyéni vállalkozóként, hivatalosan 2017. december 1. óta, nem hivatalosan 2009 óta.

Mitől vonzó a szövegíró szakma, illetve te miért tartod annak?

Most fülig ér a szám, mert mindig azzal szoktam fényezni magamat a tükör előtt, hogy én az irodalom felől érkeztem a szövegírásba, hiszen előbb jelent meg novellám, mint marketingszövegem. DE! A marketingszövegírás nagyon szigorú követelményeket támaszt az írókkal szemben, kezdve a terjedelmi korlátoktól a stílus és nyelvezet meghatározásán keresztül a szöveg célján át a brand hiteles és márkahű kommunikációjáig.
Ezt úgy kell elképzelned, hogy más hangján kell megfogalmaznod mások kommunikációs céljait a magadétól eltérő stílusban és nyelvezettel úgy, hogy a megbízód célcsoportja számára vonzó, értékes és ami nagyon fontos, hasznos tartalom legyen. Ugyanakkor - ha a megbízás erre is kitér- oktató és/vagy szórakoztató, de nem lehet szájbarágós és didaktikus, vagy alpári és közönséges.
És mindez változatos mennyiségben áll rendelkezésedre: kezded reggel a fogzásról írt közvetlen hangvételű cikkel baba-mama témában, utána jön egy komoly és szakmai hangvételű technikai cikk a mezőgazdasági művelésre is alkalmas területek agrofotovoltaikus hasznosításáról, aztán néhány termék- és kategórialeírás például magasfényű nitrátfestékek alkalmazási lehetőségeiről, majd laza zárásként a harmadik generációs napelemek kutatás-fejlesztés projektjeiről írsz edukációs szöveget.

Egyszóval az a vonzó benne, hogy egyrészt élvezem, másrészt kihívást jelent.

Milyen készségek, képességek és tulajdonságok tesznek valakit jó szellemíróvá?

Ha csak pár szóval akarnám jellemezni, azt mondanám, hogy a jó marketing- és tartalomszövegíró egy személyben pszichológus, piackutató és elemző, kereskedő, tanár, szociológus, reklámszakember, médiaszemléző és természetesen író. Tehát, mindazokat a készségeket és képességeket, azok elméleti és gyakorlati finomságait meg kell tanulnia alkalmazni a munkája során, amikkel a fentebb felsorolt szakmák képviselői rendelkeznek.
Az íráskészségen és szövegalkotási képességen kívül szüksége van az elemző kritikus szemléletére, arra, hogy igényes kutatómunkát végezzen, hogy bírjon az önreflexió képességével és tisztában legyen azzal, hogy nem tévedhetetlen.
A kíváncsiság, a nyitottság és az empátia szintén olyan tulajdonságok, amik maximálisan támogatják a szövegírót.
Legyen hajlandó folyamatosan tanulni, mert az önképzés elemi része a szövegíró létének. A hazai trendek jönnek-mennek, újraformálódnak, vagy végképp elsüllyednek. Lépést kell tartani a nemzetközi trendekkel is, de minimum lekövetni a változásokat és megfigyelni, hogy a csírák táptalajra találtak-e a hazai kommunikációban, bevonható-e, eredményre vezethet-e a mi kis Aranyos Szegeletünk szemellenzők sújtotta közegében.
Olvasson sokat és természetesen ezen kívül még sokat kell olvasnia is. Viccen kívül. Válogatás nélkül, mindent: regényt, verset, novellát, elbeszélést, pamfletet és karcolatot, tudományos folyóiratot és műszaki leírásokat, sőt, használati utasítást és garancialevelet is.
Szerencsére, ha változatos megbízásai vannak a szövegírónak, akkor az anyaggyűjtés során mindezzel találkozik, mert Magasságos Internet Anyánk kényeztető kebelén csüngve csak az nem találkozik mindezekkel, ha kizárja a világot az életéből és megelégszik azzal a homokozóval, amit a saját érdeklődése és ízlése, valamint rokonai, barátai, ismerősei és üzletfelei építenek a számára a közösségi oldalakon.
Legyen képes tudatosan megtervezni az időbeosztását és felejtse el a telefont, a közösségi médiát, az alibimosogatást. A jó időmenedzsment megsokszorozza a napi kvótát.
Tanulja meg elengedni a munkát. Egyrészt magát a cikket, mert sem idő, sem lehetőség nincs arra, hogy napokon-heteken át cizellálja. Egyébként ez a szövegírásnak egy olyan tanítása, amiből egy hagyományos értelemben vett író is tudna profitálni. Mind tudjuk, hogy befejezett munka nem, csak határidő és leadott munka létezik.
Másrészt ténylegesen is engedje el a munkát, azaz tudjon nyugodtan lazítani és pihenni is, mert az meg a regenerálódáshoz és a kiégés megelőzéséhez elengedhetetlen.

Milyen az ideális megbízó?

Egy: Tudja, hogy mit akar, konkrétan és határozottan. Ott, ahol nincs meg a cél, tapasztalataim szerint úja és újra visszakerül hozzám a szöveg további módosításra. Ergo, nincs értelme a munkámnak, amíg a megbízóm naponta változtatja az elképzeléseit és céljait, emiatt duplán-triplán dolgozom. Volt már rá példa egyszer, rövidre zártuk a kapcsolatot.
Kettő: A digitális nomádként élők számára nagyon kellemetlen, amikor a megbízó számon kéri rajtuk az idejüket. Minden tisztelettel, de nem vagyunk alkalmazottak, és legkevésbé sem láncoljuk magunkat az íróasztalhoz. Akkor és ott és úgy dolgozunk, ahol nekünk az a legjobban fekszik. Van, aki egy kávéház teraszán, van aki coworking irodában és van, aki otthon, mint én, de a saját időbeosztásunk szerint dolgozunk. Arra valók a feladatkezelő és nyilvántartó programok, hogy mindent egyeztetni tudjunk az ügyfelekkel, felesleges, többkörös telefonálgatás nélkül, tiszteletben tartva egymás idejét és munkabeosztását.
Három: Ne akarjon jobban érteni a szakmámhoz, mint én és ne kérdőjelezze meg például a space értékét a szövegben mondván, hogy a szünetet nem fizeti ki, mert ott nincs semmi. Az ilyen megbízótól rövid úton búcsút veszek már a megkeresés után, mert egyikünk számára sem lesz gyümölcsöző ez a kapcsolat.
Négy: Az ügyféledukáció persze elengedhetetlen része a szövegírásnak, hiszen nincs mindenki tisztában azzal, hogy mit várhat el egy szövegírótól és hogy neki, mint megbízónak mit kell tennie a zökkenőmentes és eredményes, sikeres együttműködésért.
Öt: Számomra az a jó megbízó, aki tisztában van azzal, hogy a munkám értékét nem a leütésszám határozza meg, hanem az, amit ő majd profitál belőle. Például, hogy a látogatói, vásárlói szemében felértékelődik a brandje. Hogy mosolyogva, vagy nevetve, jó érzésekkel a szívükben kattintják le a termékeket a webshopon, és hogy elmesélik a szomszédnak, a kollégának, a szüleiknek és a partnereiknek, hogy milyen értékes, szórakoztató, fontos kérdéseket megválaszoló tartalmat nyújt X.Y. az oldala, webshopja, stb. látogatóinak.
Öt+1: A szövegíró nem marketinges, nem grafikus, nem webdesigner, és nem kampánymenedzser, ezzel legyen tisztában. Volt már olyan esetem, aki elküldte a megbízást egy próbacikkre, megírtam neki – hozzáteszem ingyen –, majd az a válasz jött vissza, hogy de hol van a szövegben a Call to Action gombok helye, hova gondoltam elhelyezni a képeket, és mikor küldöm át a grafikai tervet, és különben is hol marad a kidolgozott kampánystratégia. Én meg pislogtam, mint dinnye a fűben, mondván, bocsika, de a megbízás 3000 leütésnyi edukációs célú szövegről szólt a fogszabályozás témájában. És ennyi. Nem arról, hogy próbacikk fedezete alatt ingyen elvégezzem számukra az egész marketingrészleg munkáját.

Milyen típusú szövegek találnak meg?

Magyar nyelven írok, de a témától függően idegen nyelven is kutatok. Vannak olyan szakterületek, ahol a magyar nyelvű net nagyon szegényes, vagy primitív tartalommal szolgál, amit anyaggyűjtéshez egyáltalán nem lehet felhasználni. Akadt témám, ahol a releváns hivatkozási pontokat litván, szlovák, szerb, angol, német, vagy éppen afrikaans (búr) nyelven találtam meg. Szerencsére az internet szinte minden nyelven tud és a guglifordító azért nem olyan elveszett dolog, mint azt híresztelik. Ha valahol zavart érzek az Erőben, akkor, ha szükséges szavanként fejtem vissza a forrásanyagot, hogy értsem a szavak és szókapcsolatok közötti összefüggéseket.
A hossz mindig a megbízótól függ. Általában standard 650 szavas céges blogokra szánt cikkeket írok, de írtam már tízezer leütéses úgynevezett cornerstone tartalmat – mélyebb, szakmai cikkek, amivel a megbízó célja kifejezetten a szakértői státusz felépítése –, és termékleírásokat, facebook és blogposztokat, valamint e-bookot; letölthető lead magnetetet, teljes weboldal szövegezést és értékesítési célú landing page oldalak szövegeit.
Pár hete elkezdtem keresőoptimalizálást tanulni, így a munkám kiegészült az úgynevezett meta és alt szövegek megírásával, amiben az a huncutság, hogy nagyon szűk, meta description esetében pl. 150 leütésbe kell minden értékes információt stílusosan belepasszintani. A trükkös része azonban nem ez, hanem amikor pl. már a huszadik pár cipő vagy vödör festék jön veled szembe a webshopon és a huszadik egyedi leírást kell megfogalmaznod konkrétan egy pár cipőről és egy vödör piros festékről. Vagy trombitáról. Madáretetőről. Védősisakról. Bármiről.
A tudományos és technológiai érdeklődésem miatt rendszerint olyan megbízásokat vállalok, ahol tobzódhatok ezekben, de írtam már a nikotinfüggésről és a leszokásról, hogy milyen kihívásokkal szembesülünk, ha kisgyermekkel keresünk albérletet, hogyan hasznosítható a római tál az életmódváltásban, hogyan tudja támogatni a digitális kompetenciák fejlesztése a gyermekeket az önálló életvitel kialakításában. Satöbbi.
Egy év alatt, amióta vállalkozóként űzöm a szövegírást, durván másfél-kétmillió leütést írtam. Abból már kijönne két-három nagyregény is.
Nem mondanám, hogy van szakterületem, könnyebb azt megfogalmazni, hogy mi az, amit nem, vagy nem szívesen vállalok. Ilyen például a gazdasági, pénzügyi, politikai, vallási téma és messziről elkerülöm a bármilyen szempontból is kirekesztő tartalmak írását. Még látatlanban sem adom a nevem gyűlöletbeszédhez, megszégyenítéshez, abúzushoz, etnikai vagy bármilyen más jellegű szegregációhoz és nem, nem írok férfiak és nők ellentmondásos viszonyát feszegető, humornak tálalt gennygombócokat. Szövegíróként legalábbis. Íróként azonban, ha a karakterem személyisége megkívánja, megteszem. Mert ő is megteszi.

Az interjú egyeztetésekor utaltál rá, hogy ebben a szakmában rendkívül fontos a titoktartás, a diszkréció. Hogyan épül fel az önéletrajzod, ha megbízóidnak névtelenségben szükséges maradniuk?

Különbséget kell tenni megbízó és ügyfél között. A kettő néha ugyanaz, például magánszemélyek esetében, de előfordulhat, hogy nem. Ha például bedolgozom alvállalkozóként egy marketinggel foglalkozó cégnek, akkor a megbízóm a marketingcsoport, az ügyfél pedig a csoport ügyfele. Ilyenkor elmondhatom, leírhatom referenciának, hogy együtt dolgozom például a The Coffeebreak Consulting Kft-vel, de azt nem írhatom bele az önéletrajzomba, hogy egészen pontosan kiknek írtam a cikket, melyik cég honlapján, webshopjában, blogján jelent meg.
Elmondhatom, hogy együtt dolgozom Az Adminisztrátorral, akit egyébként Lukáts Andreának hívnak – akivel egyébként egy nagyon komoly projektbe kezdtünk a virtuális asszisztencia, mint hiteles szakma és foglalkozás magyarországi elfogadtatásával kapcsolatban –, de azt nem mondhatom el, hogy rajta keresztül milyen ügyfélnek írtam szöveget. Ugyanez a helyzet Poros-Kiss Izabellával, aki szintén a megbízóm, de az ügyfél az ő ügyfele. És így tovább.

Hogyan találnak rád a megbízások?

A közösségi média ebben valóban segítséget nyújt. Beregisztráltam néhány szakmai csoportba, ahol egyrészt megbeszéljük egymással a szakmai jellegű kérdéseket, valamint, ha befut egy-egy megbízás és valakinek nem fér bele az idejébe, bedobja a közösbe és lehet rá jelentkezni.
Én magam is szoktam keresni, és előfordult már, hogy találtam így munkát, de nem ez a jellemző. Sajnos az a trend, amit korábban írtam, jelesül, hogy szövegírás megnevezés alatt egy tucat munkakört kellene betölteni, természetesen kizárólag a szövegírói honorért cserébe. A kapcsolati háló és az úgynevezett vállalkozás- és vállalkozófejlesztő találkozók sokkal eredményesebben működnek.

Vannak iskolák, irányzatok ebben a hivatásban? Ha igen, te melyiket követed?

A szövegírás erősen szegmentált, de ha nem gond, nem sorolom fel az összes ágát, mert akkor itt ülnénk reggelig. Kezdjük ott, hogy lehet valaki céges szövegíró, tehát úgymond házon belüli alkalmazott, lehet ügynökségi szövegíró és lehet például szabadúszó, mint én.
A szöveg típusa és célja alapján lehet reklámszövegíró, vagy például narrative copywriter/video game writer, aki a számítógépes játékok világának felépítéséért és a karakterek dialógusaiért felel. Ott van még a direct response copywriter akinek az a feladata, hogy a szöveg elolvasása azonnali cselekvésre késztesse az olvasót, a munkája durván sales, de nem jellegű, hanem egészen konkrétan az. A technical copywriter műszaki témákról ír marketingcélú szöveget, a social copywriter a közösségi médiafelületekre szakosodott. A tartalmi specialisták az ún. content copywriterek, akik a blogfelületek, weboldalak, letölthető tartalmak és esetenként nagyon hosszú szövegek, például komplett e-bookok olvasóbarát és nem minden esetben marketing vagy sales célú megírásáért felelnek.
Átfedések természetesen vannak, ahogy én is például jellemzően content, technical, commercial (kereskedelmi) és marketing szövegírással foglalkozom, de a social copywriter munkáját is elvégzem, és ha a megbízás úgy kívánja, akkor a szövegem sales, tehát értékesítés központú. Egy külsős számára nem látszik a különbség, pedig van.

Van csak rád jellemző munkamódszered?

Őszintén nem tudom. Egyedül dolgozom, így fogalmam sincs, hogyan dolgoznak mások. Csak azt tudom, hogy gonosz és kegyetlen vagyok mindenkivel, de főleg magammal. Ha úgy istenigazából elkap a gépszíj nem eszem, nem iszom, nem mozdulok a gép elől. A csendet szeretem – kivéve, amikor a kézirataimon dolgozom, mert akkor hangulattól függő zene, jellemzően, hard rock, blues és jazz, valamint klasszikus zene ordít körülöttem. Konkrétan még az is zavar, amikor a párom reggel munkába készülődik. Ritkán vállalok be hétvégén melót, mert ismerem magam, kibírhatatlanná válok és ellehetetlenítem magam körül az embereket. Ha ne adj isten mégis dolgozom, akkor a párom lábujjhegyen hozza tálcán a reggelit, nehogy leordítsam a haját, mert azt mindig csak utólag veszem észre, hogy kedves akar lenni, csak a periférián érzékelem, hogy motoszkál és közeledik és AKAR TŐLEM VALAMIT! pedig én itt sem vagyok, sőt, nem is ebben a dimenzióban létezem, hanem egy tér-időn kívüli magánbuborékban, ahonnan majd csak akkor jövök elő, ha én akarok.
Morcos, magányos sárkány vagyok, ha kizökkenek a ritmusomból, ember nem áll meg előttem a talpán épségben, egészségesen, ráadásul nehezen találok vissza a fonalamhoz, ami feldühít és effektíve is tüzet okádok. Törtem már össze random háztartási eszközöket elsárkányosodásom csúcspontjain.
Ezért gondolom azt, hogy egy coworking irodában nem tudnék dolgozni száz százalékosan. Saccperkábé egy-másfél órán belül rám hívnák a rendőrséget, tűzoltókat, a polgári védelmet és a katasztrófa elhárítást.

Ebben a szakmában hogyan mérik a sikert? Mi számít sikernek?

A siker a megbízó, az ügyfél sikere. A jó szöveg akkor sikeres, ha minél jobb helyezést ér el a cége, vállalkozása például a keresőben, ha a cikket átveszik más weboldalak, hírportálok, szakmai oldalak. Ha minél több interakciót kap a közösségi médiában, ha minél több megrendelése, olvasója, minél nagyobb forgalma és ebből származó bevétele, haszna keletkezik, B2B, azaz business to business esetében.
Ha B2C-ről van szó, tehát business to customer, akkor az a siker, ha az illető, például zenész, énekes, fotográfus, festő, író, st. személyes brandje megerősödik, szélesebb körben talál elismerésre, több meghívást kap pl. kiállításra, több fellépési, előadói lehetőséget kap, megjelenik a print és a broadcast médiában is.
 A szövegíró érdeke tehát az, hogy a megbízója legyen sikeres, mert a jó munkának híre megy és ahogy azt korábban említettem, a kapcsolati hálóból eredményesebben jut újabb megbízásokhoz. Egy szellemíró esetében tehát az olvasóközönség számára nem látványos a siker, hiszen senki sem tudja, hogy ki az, aki a szöveg mögött áll. De, ha jól végzi a dolgát, a megbízók, ügyfelek fogják egymásnak ajánlgatni, ennek pedig idővel a szakmában is híre megy.
A magam részéről azt tartom sikernek, amikor látom a SEO-eredményeket, a kattintási arányokat, és hogy szépen emelkedik a látogatottság görbéje és természetesen a közösségi média interakciói is számítanak.
A saját nézőpontom ugyanis az, hogy bár a megbízó/ügyfél megrendelésére írok, a munkám végeredményben az olvasóknak szól.

Első és egyben utolsó példa? | kép forrása: GameStar

A közösségi könyvkiadás lehetősége jelen van, külföldön több szerző is így valósította meg kiadási álmát, és konkrét magyar példa is létezik.




A csillagokig és tovább

Dragon György kezdeményezése a mára köddé vált indulj.be közösségi finanszírozást közvetítő oldal projektjei közül nőtte ki magát 2012-ben. A GameStar korábbi szerkesztője a közösség erejét hívta segítségül sf története, Az űrcsilliárdos megszületéséhez. A dolog híre a korabeli médiában meglepően kevés visszhangot vetett, ennek ellenére - vagy ezzel együtt - az első pár százezer forint 
hamar megérkezett a projekt számlájára.
A projekt gyakorlatilag magánkiadáshoz való támogatók keresését és bevonását jelentette. Attól függően, ki mennyivel szállt bele elővételi vásárlás címén, különféle extrákban részesülhetett. A dedikált példány megszerzésétől kezdve az ingyenes ajándék stratégiai számítógépes játékon át a történetbe való bekerülés is szerepelt a lehetőségek között. A projekt támogatóit motiválhatta, hogy a regény bolti terjesztésbe nem került, azaz akit érdekelt, miről szól a történet, csak és kizárólag finanszírozóvá válóként tudhatta meg.
A gyűjtés sikeresnek bizonyult, mind a 900.000 Ft összegyűlt és 2013-ban kiadták Az űrcsilliárdost. A kiadást ugyanaz a cég végezte, mely megváltozott névvel ma a PC World, GameStar és Computerworld magazinok kiadásáért is felel. A könyv alapján fejlesztett játék is kijött a Goblin Lunaticstól 10 perces űrstratégia címmel.

Utóélet

Cél, hogy a könyv megszülessen, megvalósult, de szomorú eseménnyel zárultak. Dragon György 2015-ben elhunyt. A könyv megjelenése körüli időkben az sf témákkal foglalkozó felületek közül az sfportal írt róla a legtöbbet, sőt nyereményjátékot is szerveztek, ahol pár kérdés megválaszolásával a nyertes a könyv egy példányával gazdagodhatott. A magukat független játékfejlesztőket összetömörítő csapatként jellemző Goblin Lunatics blogja 2015 óta hallgat, a Molyon csöndes mellőzöttségben tengődik a könyv adatlapja. A könyv honlapja és Facebook oldala megszűnt. Utoljára a Galaktika cikkezett az a szerző 2015 októberében szervezett túrkevei emlékkiállításáról.

          Thousands attend visitation to honor fallen McHenry County Sheriff's deputy      Cache   Translate Page      
Thousands of area residents and law enforcement officials from across the region paid their respects to McHenry County Sheriff’s Deputy Jacob Keltner during his visitation Tuesday afternoon.

A line of mourners stretched outside DeFiore Funeral Home, 10763 Dundee Road, in Huntley.

"It's been really sad and devastating," said family friend Laura Strong while on a bus leaving the visitation. "I think the community wants to honor someone who dedicated their life to serving the community. ... He was a nice guy. He loved and cared for [his wife] and the family."

McHenry County Circuit Court Chief Judge James Cowlin said he attended the visitation to show support from the judiciary.

"The judiciary respected him," Cowlin said. "This is a terrible tragedy for the family. A horrendous tragedy. What can you do other than express your sympathies and say your prayers. The rest is in God's hand."

Donna Rothgeb of Gilberts attended the visitation with her husband and teenage granddaughter.

"We were just talking about how this is becoming too often," she said, adding that she hopes people understand the risks law enforcement professionals take every day. "I can't help but be moved. I'm so blessed I still have my husband, my children, my grandkids."

Kane County Sheriff's Office spokesman Pat Gengler said the Illinois Chapter of Concerns of Police Survivors (C.O.P.S.) helped organize the visitation and funeral with help from the Illinois Law Enforcement Alarm System.

He said hundreds of law enforcement officials from across the region have volunteered their time and resources to help the make the visitation and funeral run smoothly. He expects thousands of police officers, state troopers, sheriff's deputies and firefighters from "all over the place" to attend Wednesday's funeral.

"It's not surprising," he said. "This is what happens. This is what everybody does. ... It's not surprising to see this kind of support."

Gengler said Illinois Gov. JB Pritzker stopped by Tuesday evening to pay his respects.

Keltner, 35, of Crystal Lake, was shot and killed Thursday while trying to serve a warrant to a known fugitive in Rockford. He was a McHenry County Sheriff’s deputy and a member of the U.S. Marshals Service Great Lakes Regional Fugitive Task Force.

His wife, Becki Keltner, wrote a letter posted on the Illinois State Police Facebook page.

In the letter, Becki Keltner describes her husband as a “cop’s cop,” and said he loved his family.

“Jake is the love of my life,” she wrote. “We met at Western Illinois University in January 2004 and were inseparable. We married in 2007.”

She called for an end to hate.

"There are no words to sum up a man who meant so much for me and to so many others. My only wish is to have a world where we stop hating each other," she wrote. "Lift each other up. It's the only way to stop this unconscionable madness."

Gengler said the letter "breaks your heart."

A formal law enforcement walkthrough is scheduled for 6 p.m. Tuesday.

Carpentersville firefighter Matt Tracy said law enforcement officers, firefighters and emergency medical personnel are all "brothers."

"I wanted to come out today and pay our respects," said Tracy, who also serves as a member of the Associated Fire Fighters of Illinois Honor Guard. "You never want to lose anybody in law enforcement, fire, EMS at all. ... We're going to keep doing what we do every day and hope that this doesn't happen and when it does be there to respect those who have given the ultimate sacrifice for what they do."

The sheriff's department said on Tuesday that donations to the Keltner family can be dropped off at or sent to the McHenry County Sheriff's Office, 2200 N. Seminary Ave., Woodstock, 60098, or at DeFiore Funeral Home, 10763 Dundee Road, Huntley, 60142. Checks should be made out to Becki Keltner.

The funeral

The funeral is scheduled for 10 a.m. Wednesday at Woodstock North High School, 3000 Raffel Road. Woodstock North will be closed for the service.

Parking at the high school Wednesday will be for first responders only. Doors will open at 8 a.m., with law enforcement and other first responders receiving priority seating.

An official procession of law enforcement and emergency vehicles will follow the funeral. The public can line the route to support and honor Keltner. The procession is expected to leave Woodstock North High School about 12:30 p.m. Wednesday and arrive at DeFiore Funeral Home about 3 p.m.

          Netanyahu: ‘Israel Is Not A Country Of All Its Citizens’      Cache   Translate Page      

Israel's Prime Minster Benjamin Netanyahu delivers a speech.

Prime Minister of Israel Benjamin Netanyahu said Sunday that Israel is “not a country of all its citizens,” The Jerusalem Post reports.

What prompted the prime minister’s comments were social media posts made by famous Israeli actress and television host Rotem Sela. In an Instagram post, Sela pointed out that Israel treats Arabs like second class citizens.

“When will anyone in this government tell the public that this is a country of all its citizens, and all people are born equal?” the actress asked, adding that Arabs “are also human beings,” as are homosexuals, and “leftists.”

But according to Benjamin Netanyahu, Sela is wrong. The Israeli prime minister wrote in a Facebook post that Israel is indeed “not a country of all its citizens,” explaining that this is explicitly stated in the Nation-State Law that his government had passed.

Zuckerberg’s new privacy essay shows why Facebook needs to be broken up

Zuckerberg describes Facebook as a town square. It isn’t. Facebook is a company that brought in more than $55 billion in advertising revenue last year, with a 45% profit margin. This makes it one of the most profitable business ventures in human history. It must be understood as such.

Facebook has minted money because it has figured out how to commoditize privacy on a scale never before seen. A diminishment of privacy is its core product. Zuckerberg has made his money by performing a sort of arbitrage between how much privacy Facebook’s 2 billion users think they are giving up and how much he has been able to sell to advertisers. He says nothing of substance in his long essay about how he intends to keep his firm profitable in this supposed new era. That’s one reason to treat his Damascene moment with healthy skepticism.

“Frankly we don’t currently have a strong reputation for building privacy protective services,” Zuckerberg writes. But Facebook’s reputation is not the salient question: its business model is. If Facebook were to implement strong privacy protections across the board, it would have little left to sell to advertisers aside from the sheer size of its audience. Facebook might still make a lot of money, but they’d make a lot less of it.

Zuckerberg’s proposal is a bait-and-switch. What he’s proposing is essentially a beefed-up version of WhatsApp. Some of the improvements might be worthwhile. Stronger encryption can indeed be useful, and a commitment to not building data centers in repressive countries is laudable, as far as it goes. Other principles that Zuckerberg puts forth would concentrate his monopoly power in worrisome ways. The new “platforms for private sharing” are not instead of Facebook’s current offering: they’re in addition to it. “Public social networks will continue to be very important in people’s lives,” he writes, an assertion he never squares with the vague claim that “interacting with your friends and family across the Facebook network will become a fundamentally more private experience.”

By narrowly construing privacy to be almost exclusively about end-to-end encryption that would prevent a would-be eavesdropper from intercepting communications, he manages to avoid having to think about Facebook’s weaknesses and missteps. Privacy is not just about keeping secrets. It’s also about how flows of information shape us as individuals and as a society. What we say to whom and why is a function of context. Social networks change that context, and in so doing they change the nature of privacy, in ways that are both good and bad.

          Gaji Baru RM2500 Tetapi Mampu Beli 17 Buah Rumah      Cache   Translate Page      


Assalamualaikum, terima kasih admin kerana menyiarkan perkongsian aku ini. Aku nak cerita pengalaman aku beli rumah agar jadi sumber inspirasi kepada sesiapa yang nak beli rumah terutama rumah pertama.

Cerita aku mungkin tak sehebat pakar-pakar hartanah seperti Ija Syariza yang beli 14 buah rumah setahun, Faizul Ridzuan yang membeli lebih 50 hartanah, cashflow positif hampir ratusan ribu ringgit sebulan, dan pakar2 hartanah lain yang menjadi ikutan aku seperti Adlina MN, Rohaniah Noor, Muhd Farid, Syafieqah Alya, Harith Faisal, Meor Zaidi, Khairul Ezuwan, Redzwan Khairuddin, Anis Hafiza dan sebagainya. Boleh follow (see first) diorang semua kat facebook guys, diorang share ilmu percuma je. Insya Allah, korang terpengaruh dan segera beli rumah nanti.

Pengenalan ringkas diri aku, aku berasal daripada keluarga yang sederhana di Utara Semenanjung Malaysia. Selepas habis degree, aku berhijrah ke Kuala Lumpur untuk mencari rezeki. Aku bekerja sebagai eksekutif di sebuah syarikat swasta, gaji bersih aku ialah RM2325.

Start dari gaji pertama, aku buat simpanan dan perbelanjaan yang teliti. Secara ringkas perbelanjaan aku, sewa bilik ialah RM200 sebulan, duit makan RM500 sebulan, duit mak ayah RM300 sebulan, bas pergi balik kerja RM100, lain-lain perbelanjaan RM200. Alhamdulillah, aku dapat simpan lebih kurang sebanyak RM1000 sebulan. Agak susah nak kawal nafsu perbelanjaan ketika itu.

Selepas menyimpan selama 4 bulan, aku angkat motor modenas CT100 cash, best giler ada motor, boleh pakai motor pergi kerja, tak perlu naik bas dah. Minyak pun tak mahal, RM15 je sebulan. Selepas beli motor, agak mudah aku nak bergerak ke mana-mana, tak perlu naik bas lagi dah pergi kerja.

Selepas motor, target aku seterusnya adalah membeli rumah. Selama setahun, aku simpan duit untuk deposit rumah. Alhamdulillah, aku berjaya beli sebuah rumah lelong di Klang berharga RM32K. Deposit hanya RM3200, campur kos2 lain, dalam RM5K. Dengan modal RM5K, aku dapat sebuah rumah pada usia aku 24 tahun. Bayaran bulanan kepada bank hanya RM140. Kadar sewaan di kawasan rumah aku beli ni agak tinggi kerana ada kilang berhampiran. Sewa rata-rata RM900. Aku bagi sewa hanya RM700, hasilnya setiap bulan aku dapat lebihan duit sebanyak RM560 (RM700-RM140). Alhamdulillah, aku dapat penyewa dari syurga, bayar duit sewa on time.

Untuk rumah pertama aku ni, aku suruh penyewa bank in sewa dalam akaun bank setiap bulan. Supaya aku boleh guna surat perjanjian sewa & bank statement (duit sewa masuk) untuk pinjaman rumah seterusnya. Rumah kedua aku beli selepas 6 bulan beli rumah pertama iaitu sebuah rumah lelong berharga RM41K di Subang.

Aku beli rumah murah2 je. Member aku ketika itu kebanyakan semua beli rumah pertama RM400K ke atas, undercons. aku belum mampu. Aku beli rumah murah je, tapi aku tak tak pernah beli low cost ye. Sebab ada sekatan dan tak nak ambil hak orang susah. Aku cari rumah lelong murah2 je, area orang tak berminat sangat nak beli, tapi ada potensi sewa. Alhamdulillah, bermula kecil, lama-lama jadi bukit. Yang penting, kena rajin buat research, rajin belajar.

Ada juga member aku yang dari dulu sampai ke harini, dah 4 tahun kata nak survey2 beli rumah, tapi sampai ke harini tak beli beli. Apabila aku bagi suggestion, kata “tengok dulu macam mana, survey2 dulu”. Takpelah, cara masing-masing.

Alhamdulillah, sehingga ke hari ini. Aku dah memiliki 17 hartanah dan aku masih menyewa. Aku dah beli kereta, dah tak naik motor akibat faktor keselamatan. Aku pakai kereta biasa2 je, kereta saga baru. Aku target nak ada 20 buah rumah sebelum berusia 30 tahun. Lepas tu aku nak kahwin. Insya Allah. Kena banyak usaha keras lagi.



Gaji aku sebagai exec, setiap tahun naik RM20-30 sahaja, aku belum naik pangkat lagi. Hari ini gaji bersih aku belum mencecah RM2500. Tetapi Alhamdulillah, pendapatan daripada sewa yang membantu aku membeli banyak rumah. Alhamdulillah, rezeki Allah bagi. Yang penting kena usaha.

Aku target nak bersara nanti umur 35, nak jual beberapa rumah dapatkan cash dan nak pergi haji dan travel satu dunia. Aku akan simpan beberapa buah rumah sebagai mesin ATM (positive cash flow), dapatlah sikit sebanyak menampung hidup aku ketika persaraan nanti.

Nasihat aku kepada orang muda yang nak beli rumah, berusahalah kawal perbelanjaan dan belajarlah menyimpan. Sekarang lagi mudah nak beli rumah, ada loan 100% skim rumah pertamaku (Cagamas), ada rumawip (Residensi Wilayah), Selangorku, Pr1ma, Maybank Houzkey, House Ownership Campaign (HOC) dan sebagainya. Aku cemburu dengan korang. Usaha cari dan baca. Ambillah peluang wahai anak muda, keadaan seperti ini mungkin tak datang lagi.

Kalau nak bermula dari bawah seperti aku, followlah otai2 lelong kat facebook seperti Ija Syariza dan Adlina MN. Insya Allah, mereka sentiasa share cara beli rumah yang murah-murah tetapi gempak.

Akhir kata, hendak seribu daya, malas seribu alasan.

Sekian, terima kasih.

          Everyone's Overreacting To The Wrong Thing About Facebook (Briefly) Blocking Elizabeth Warren's Ads      Cache   Translate Page      

I've made it clear that I don't think much of Elizabeth Warren's big plan to "break up big tech," which seemed not particularly well thought out and unlikely to accomplish its actual goals. Even so, I certainly cringed upon hearing the news that Facebook had blocked an ad that Warren's team had taken to promote the plan. I mean, come on. Here is Warren, talking about how Facebook is too powerful and can potentially influence policy by choosing what it allows and what it doesn't allow... and Facebook up and hands Warren the most beautiful gift she could ever hope for: blocking her own ad for her policy to break up Facebook. Basically everyone immediately spun the story as Facebook trying to censor this call to break up itself.

It sure looked bad.

Of course, the reality, again, is a lot more nuanced. And, while everyone will ignore this (and I'm sure some people will make bogus accusations in the comments), the reality is that this isn't proof of Facebook's nefarious attempts to censor people it doesn't like or messages it doesn't like. It's proof of the impossibility of content moderation at scale. As Facebook explained, the original ad violated a Facebook policy that had nothing to do with the message it was sending: you're apparently not allowed to use Facebook's logo in an ad:

“We removed the ads because they violated our policies against use of our corporate logo," the spokesperson said. "In the interest of allowing robust debate, we are restoring the ads.”

This is, indeed, true. If you look at Facebook's ad policies it shows the following:

You are, in fact, not allowed to use a Facebook logo in an ad. Warren's ad violated that. Of course, in this context, it looks really, really bad. As Buzzfeed's Ryan Mac noted, this policy -- "which was ostensibly put in place for good reason, is interpreted without nuance."

Yup. Except, here's the thing, as we discussed on our podcast last year, it is literally impossible to invoke nuance when discussing moderation of content at scale. To handle the kind of scale that Facebook and other giant platforms deal with, you need to have thousands (and maybe tens of thousands) of content moderators, and they need to be trained in a manner that they will apply the same rules pretty consistently (which is already an impossible standard). In such a world, there is literally no room for nuance. A system that allows nuance is one that allows arbitrary decision making... leading to just more complaints of inconsistent content moderation.

And, frankly, for all of Warren's attempt to frame this as evidence that Facebook has "too much power" and is "dominated by a single censor," what actually played out suggests why that's inaccurate. These ads weren't getting much attention. Indeed, they had almost no money behind them. According to Buzzfeed, these ads weren't designed to reach a wide audience:

Facebook’s ad archive shows that the four ads had less than $100 in backing each, with three garnering fewer than 1,000 impressions and one garnering between 1,000 and 5,000 impressions.

And then what happened? The ads got taken down, and rather being "censored," the story went crazy viral through other sources, almost as if the Warren campaign maybe found some silly rule to violate just to make this kind of thing happen.... And, of course, the Streisand Effect then guaranteed that for basically a tiny ad spend, a ton more people now became aware of these ads.

I fully expect that the details and nuance here will be ignored by most -- and we'll keep hearing for months (or, possibly, years) about how this somehow "proves" Facebook either "censors critics" or is too dominant and can stifle a message. And, yet, all of the details show something very, very different. Content moderation at scale is impossible to do well, and when Facebook does (for totally different reasons) try to stifle a message (after receiving tons of pressure from people like Elizabeth Warren to better police political ads...), it suddenly became headline news across the political and tech news realms.

Again, there are all sorts of reasons to be concerned about Facebook's market position. And I'd love to see more competition in the market. But, can we at least not jump on the easy narrative when it's wrong, even if it "feels" good?

          How To Actually Break Up Big Tech      Cache   Translate Page      

Last week, I wrote about Elizabeth Warren's big plan to break up big tech and why I thought her plan (a) would not work and (b) was based on a fairly shocking number of factual errors. Not everyone agreed (indeed, many people have disagreed). Many of those who disagreed, though, seemed to only do so because they hate the big internet companies, and thus they seemed happy about any attack on them, no matter how pointless. Others attacked me personally, insisting that my detailed explanation of why I found Warren's plan laughably naive was really just because I "love big tech." Finally, some demanded to know what my plan would be. And while I think it's somewhat silly to imply that you cannot critique a bad plan if you can't come up with another plan (sometimes, doing nothing is the best plan), I've been meaning to write some more about this anyway, and here's a good opportunity.

Contrary to the strawman beliefs some insist I have, I am quite worried about the market power of many large companies these days, and how that might be stifling competition. As I've argued for over twenty years on this site, the single biggest driver of innovation is competition. And I want to see more competition to get more innovation. My issue is that doing so through regulatory means is fraught with significant risks -- ones that could very much do the opposite. Highly regulated industries are not known for being competitive and innovative for the most part. They tend to enable only big entities -- who can deal with the regulations -- to exist and crowd out startups. On top of that, thanks to regulatory capture and the crony nature of our political system these days, you also end up with just a few big companies who now focus on what we've referred to in the past as political innovation rather than technological or entrepreneurial innovation. It's a recipe for stagnation, not innovation and competition.

My second big concern with the plans people have been floating is that they ignore the reality of why some of the tech companies have gotten so big and so successful. For the most part, they're in highly networked industries, where it's not just "winner takes all" but in many ways size and dominance of the network is fundamental to their operation. Network effects can lead to dominant positions, for the fairly obvious reason that the bigger they are, the better they are for everyone involved. For all of Warren's talk of breaking up companies, note that she was only talking about chipping off a few of their peripheral acquisitions: not taking an axe to their core business.

And that's because she recognizes that as much as people scream to "break up big tech," there's no reasonable way to do that without making the overall offerings a lot less useful for the public. How do you break up Facebook's social network? Do you say half the world can't use it and have to use the BookFace spinoff instead? You could, of course, cleave off Instagram and Whatsapp, but that doesn't really change Facebook's overall global dominance. The reason Facebook is so powerful is that it connects the entire globe. There is no place to make a reasonable cut to split that up. Google is powerful because of its search engine. How do you break that up? Do you say for searches on topic X you use Google, but for searches on topic Y you have to use Elgoog? You could cut off Doubleclick from Google, but then you still have a massive search engine and a massive internet ads company. And while I guess you could cut off Amazon's web services piece from it store, that doesn't change the main "competition" complaint most people have about Amazon, which is the size of its footprint in e-commerce. But again, it got there not through predatory practices, but because it's so convenient and easy for most people that they actually get tremendous benefit from it.

But, that presents a dilemma. And while lots of people seem to think there are easy answers to this (just like they think there are easy answers to "content moderation") there are not. This is a really complex issue, and like nearly all super complex issues, the easy solutions tend to look appealing, while actually making everything a hell of a lot worse.

So I will make a suggestion for how I'd like to "break up" big tech, while admitting that since this is a complex topic with no easy answer, I could be wrong. But so could everyone else. And I've been digging through the details on this stuff for many years now, and I do think my plan makes the most sense. Later this year, I have a big academic paper on this topic coming out with a lot more details, so in the meantime expect a bunch more posts on this topic leading up to that.

The idea goes back to one I raised back in 2015 in the context of content moderation: that we need to move to a world of protocols, not platforms. This is the world of the earlier internet, dominated by open protocols with a variety of competitive apps built on top. Instead of Twitter, there was IRC. Instead of Reddit, there was Usenet. And you had a choice of clients and servers and could move around if you didn't like the policies of one or the other.

In the world of protocols, you still get the global connectivity benefit, but without the lockdown control and silos (and, potentially, the questionable privacy practices). In a world of protocols, there may be a global network, but you get competition at every other level. You can have competitive servers, competitive apps and user interfaces, competitive filters, competitive business models, and competitive forms of data management. If you don't like how one app provider handles privacy, you move to another -- but because you're using the same protocol, you don't lose everything you're doing with it, you're just entering through a new door that you like better. If you don't like the way one provider handles content moderation, you change it or move to another.

And, yes, I noted competition at the business model level as well -- because that's important. We could see lots of interesting attempts at creating different services with different business models that go beyond the limited options (pay with your data, freemium, advertising, etc.) today. One option might be in the form of cryptocurrency or token tied to the protocol. While I can already hear half of you rolling your eyes, this is a model that is at least worth exploring. A cryptocurreny or token tied to a protocol takes away much of the incentive for the really terrible business models everyone complains about. You don't need to spy on everyone if just getting more usage in general increases the value of the currency. And encouraging business models that don't require collecting data on everyone is something we should celebrate, not mock. But, cryptocurrency isn't the only such solution either. I've been playing around with a few attempts at new protocol-based systems these days that purposely eschew the cryptocurrency/token model, and are exploring other models instead. The point is that there are other ways of making this work, and more options is better.

However, if we were in a world where the major services and functions we used online were protocols instead of platforms, it would move the power and control out to the ends of the network, rather than centralizing it on the servers of a few giant companies. We'd still get the benefits of the network effects of the systems, but without the centralized control. We'd still be able to get innovation at various levels, but without relying on a single entity to determine what's best. We'd still get the convenience of powerful services, but without the opaque decision making of a single entity. It's an approach that could actually work.

That still leaves the question of how do we get there from here. And there are a lot of challenges in that. But I don't think declaring large platforms as "platform utilities" gets us any closer to that vision -- and if anything seems to drive us away from it. I'll be writing some more posts on how we get towards a world of protocols instead of platforms, and the many hurdles in the way, in the coming weeks and months. However, there are two key approaches to making it happen: either bottom up or top down. And both could work -- but both could be difficult.

The bottom up approach is people designing new protocols from scratch and building a new userbase. That presents a huge number of challenges in terms of building up the userbase, but it's not impossible. New startups pop on the scene all the time, and some of them even succeed. And I already know of at least 6 or 7 attempts at building these kinds of protocols from scratch. And while they're all fairly small, some are building up at least some traction and are interesting to follow and experiment with. The benefit to this approach is you have no legacy to deal with, making things easier to design and the entire setup more nimble. The cons, obviously, are the lack of a userbase and the basic "empty room" problem: how do you get someone to use a social application when there's nothing to do there and no one to connect with?

The "top down" approach would be to convince an existing internet giant to move towards such a world. It's unlikely that any company today would agree to flip the switch entirely and open up their platform into an open protocol. But I would argue that it's not as far out and unrealistic an idea as many assume. In the last six months, I've had in-depth conversations with four large internet companies about this approach, and they were surprisingly more open to at least considering what it would mean than I initially expected. And while I may go into more detail in later posts, I'll give three quick reasons why the big tech firms may actually decide it makes sense to give up their silos in the long run:

  1. It gets them away from proposals like Warren's to "break up" their business, which they know would create a giant mess. By opening up their core code for anyone to use and pushing the power out to the ends of the network, the companies are effectively "breaking themselves up.
  2. It takes them off the hook for all of the platform liability that is getting dumped on them these days. There are all sorts of competing and impossible demands on these platforms concerning how they moderate content, with tons of people being upset no matter what decision is made, and various people and (especially) politicians now looking to dump massive liability on the platforms themselves. If they turn their system into a protocol, they actually get rid of much of that headache. There will still be questions about content moderation, but it becomes a very different problem -- one to where there can be many different approaches, with competition at the filter level. We didn't used to blame email providers for spam, but thanks to the open protocols of email, it allowed all sorts of innovative spam filtering services to spring up. Given how much of a headache content moderation and platform liability has become of late -- and the fact it's likely to become an even bigger headache over time -- at some point, companies are going to realize an open protocols approach is a solution to that problem.
  3. The possibility of new business models. This is important. Lots of people insist that no giant platform would willingly give up so much control, because it's entirely antithetical to business models built off of collecting all the data. And that's true. But, that's why I'm eager to see how new business models shake out in this space, because it might lessen the "we collect all your data" business model reliance and open up new opportunities that could even be more lucrative (especially if they create opportunities where people start abandoning services that don't respect their privacy).
There still are plenty of reasons why the big platforms are unlikely to do this in the near future (and I'm pretty sure a clueless Wall St. would punish any company that tried), but as various trends continue to move along, it may become more and more appealing.

Notice that all of that could very well happen without a massive policy intervention from the government. However, there are certainly policy ideas that could help move this along a lot faster. Of course, moving these policy proposals forward would require a more detailed understanding of how technology and technology innovation really works, because the key isn't enforcing breakups or trying to codify "fairness" guidelines with new rules -- it's taking away some of the existing legal and regulatory tools that make it easy and appealing to build vertically-integrated walled gardens, which aren't always obvious to people who aren't immersed in the tech policy space since they are presented as having other purposes:

  1. Get rid of most patents (if we're talking real antitrust, we'd start by getting rid of these government-granted monopolies). Perhaps you could start with "software" ones, though defining what is a "software" patent is hard enough. Patents hinder competition and would create huge problematic thickets in a world of protocols where we want widespread competition at every other level. Without patent thickets and patent trolls, we'd see a lot more competition, especially in taking different approaches to providing interfaces and filters for the same kinds of content.
  2. Dump the ridiculous CAFC ruling on API copyrights and make it clear that there is not copyright on interfaces, meaning that you could actually have much more interoperability and people building new systems to connect to third party products.
  3. Get rid of Section 1201 of the DMCA and its anti-circumvention rules. Again, this blocks competition and interoperability. Indeed, Section 1201 is a huge barrier to this kind of future, in that it would allow companies to effectively block out competitive third party services through "technological protection measures." Without 1201, it would make it much easier for almost anyone to create a new competitive interface for an existing protocol-based service.
  4. Make sure that full encryption is supported as a fundamental right of end users. This becomes important, as a protocol-based system should also lead to a booming new market for databanks that will store your encrypted data, giving you total control over it and who it is shared with (and for what purposes). But if there are mandated backdoors or some other crap, you completely destroy such a market. Encryption makes this possible.
  5. Get the SEC to stop thinking of cryptocurrency as just a financial tool and to recognize it's something entirely different. Sure, you need them to deal with the out-and-out scams, but as it stands right now, the SEC is talking about crazy ideas like how any crypto system should need to go through "clinical trials" like drugs. Ideas like that would simply snuff out any possibility of the above ever happening. People don't realize how much of this future may be held back by a myopic SEC who is viewing all of this through a single lens.
There's more, but those steps would open up a lot of opportunity for a protocols-based system to take hold. And when it really happens, no one's going to worry about "breaking up" big tech anymore, because it won't even be necessary.

          Month boosts awareness of developmental disabilities      Cache   Translate Page      
“I invite all individuals, agencies, and organizations concerned with the problem of developmental disabilities to observe this month with appropriate observances and activities directed toward increasing public awareness of the needs and the potential of Americans with developmental disabilities. I urge all Americans to join me in according to our fellow citizens with such disabilities both encouragement and the opportunity they need to lead productive lives and to achieve their full potential.”

These words were part of President Ronald Reagan’s public proclamation in 1987 when he designated the month of March as Developmental Disabilities Awareness Month.

Gateway Services in Princeton has been promoting the rights of people with disabilities for 49 years.

“People with disabilities have value, they are contributing members of our community, and they have so much to offer,” Tracy Wright, CEO of Gateway, said.

“People who happen to have a disability are proven to be reliable workers and excellent volunteers, and they want to live the same lives that we all have. They really are no different — they just need the opportunity,” Wright said.

Gateway Services Inc. opened in March 1970 and continues to provide a variety of services in Bureau, Marshall and Putnam counties.

cell-phone-addicted-teen.jpg
"Cell Phone Addiction." Mirolta. Minesh Rai, 8 July 2013. Web. 25 Nov. 2014.
    <http://mirolta.com/wp-content/uploads/2013/07/
    cell-phone-addicted-teen.jpg>. This picture provides my blog with the
    realization that the more technology progresses the more we depend on it
    and the more kids younger and younger are only being taught from
    electronics. It shows we rely on technology to grow and succeed.

There are two types of electronics in this image; people can’t just have one electronic item which is very true in this time and age. Say if you were to get a desktop computer and at that time it was the best thing out there, but then a couple months later they came out with a laptop that is 10x faster than your desktop. You would go and buy it only for the reasons it’s faster, everyone will have it, and you believe it’s better because it’s the newest thing. Well now you have a desktop and a laptop;  why do you really need two electronics that do the same thing just in a different way? But now look at how the baby is holding the cell phone as if it is drinking from a bottle. This is showing that we rely on these objects as though we need them to survive in life, just like a baby needs food. We all technically “feed” off of this inanimate object as though it is a life source because we are unable to see that we should not have to rely on it as though it is the all powerful thing that controls what we do. .I believe the creator of this image was trying to get across that we rely on these thing way too often and we really don’t need them to get through the day. When would you ever really see a baby with a cell phone? It’s just not realistic. But at the same time it is because people now compared to people back when cellphones were first invented have so much more going on, on, their phone. Just think right now for a few minutes how many apps do you have on your phone? How long could you really go without it? Are the uses you use it for all necessary? How often would you say you pick it up in 30 minutes? The overall message this is getting across to people is that you should look at how reliant you are on one object that has taken over your life, and basically you need your cellphone and other electronics to survive in todays society. People would rather just sit their kids down in front of the tv or give them an ipad for a couple hours while the parents themselves have time to check their own phones and update their statuses to “OMG my kids are driving me insane” instead of taking them out for a walk to the park and play with friends. Also the light rays coming off of the cell phone make it like it is the almighty power that runs all life on this planet. If we did not have a cellphone or they were never invented we would be lost and mindless people just roaming the earth and not going anywhere in life.

Teens-Still-Use-Cell-Phones.jpg
Parenting Jurnals. Parenting Journals, 2007. Web. 5 Dec. 2014.
    <http://www.parenting-journals.com/about/>. People know that driving
    and texting is illegal and dangerous but yet they still do it because they
    have the feeling they need to answer right away

This woman is texting on her cellphone while she is in a moving vehicle and she is not even paying attention to where she’s going on the road; which isn't important at all but replying to her friend she’s probably going to see in like 15 minutes is. It’s basically saying your life and others lives are less important than replying to a text you could reply to in a little while. It’s illegal, dangerous, and a risk for you and everyone else driving on the same road and she still proceeds to answer the text message even though she knows it’s wrong. I believe the message that this picture is trying to get across is that people are so addicted to the phone that they can’t just wait until they are in a safe environment and respond to their text then; they just have the urge to answer right away and see what’s on their phone. The picture is taken from a behind view which makes the cellphone in her hands stand out also it makes the steering wheel stand out like it’s a huge message she is driving and texting at the same time. It’s not a safe act to do especially when you are in a moving vehicle you are not only putting yourself in danger but you are also putting other in danger as well. This picture connects with the first because they both show very close similarities. The first picture shows the baby not being able to live without the phone as if it is the life source for the baby, and this picture shows the woman being so addicted to her phone that she can’t just wait to text back after she is done driving. My image 2 supports the overall message because they are saying the same thing just in two different time periods in life. The baby needs it for survival and the woman needs it to ease her urge to answer the text back, she can’t leave it alone just like she is thriving off of it. People just can not live without their phone in their hand and it is sad that they are willing to put their lives in danger to answer a text message; people are too addicted to electronics.

Cyberbullying.jpg
Searcylaw.com. Adam Hecht, 28 Oct. 20014. Web. 9 Dec. 2014.
    <http://www.searcylaw.com/new-study-cyberbullying-spiraling/>. A girl
    is being cyber bullied over text and the girls in the back are the bullies

The girl in the front of the picture is upset or hurt by something; she is holding her phone right in front of her like she just read something she did not want to. There are two girls that are fuzzy in the back and they are looking toward the girl in the front with their phone in their hands; they are smiling like they just did something they think is funny. The girl in the front has been messaged something from the girls in the background and it was something that was not nice and it’s made the girl upset: she is alone and the girls in the back are together and are smirking. Cell phones are not just used for finding the newest hip song or where the closest starbucks is: teenagers use their phones as a lifeline for their existence and it’s really sad how they thrive off of it in this generation. This girl is being bullied by these other two girls in the back; the girls are laughing like its a joke. The main message this is sending is that people don’t understand how often things like this occur in a normal teenagers life: the thing is these girls are not thinking about what they are really doing to this girl, they can be charged for what they are starting to do to her. Cell Phones create this fake world that a huge amount of people live in and they are cautious of what they are sending off it. The two girls in the back laughing at what they have sent to the girl by her self creates a very tense and uncomfortable feeling that is happening to this girl. I think the person who took this photo got his/her point across for the message because it is obvious it’s a bullying message and it is made very clear that she is in this position by the way the photo was taken and the theme of black and white, the two girls in the back laughing and overpowering the one girl in the front. She is very clear to the camera and the girls in the back are all blurred out. All three of these images all share one main similarity and that is how they show that electronics are bad and can hurt people and mess up life sometimes; believing it is our life source, texting while driving, and cyber bullying. A couple differences is that they come at this point from different angles, and they all convince this thesis is correct. I believe that this world would have been better off without electronics ever being invented and we never know what a life without them would be like but it could have been a lot healthier and safer without them. Electronics should not have been invented.

    electrons, like he is under a spell they have and they are singing and
    dancing around taunting him  

The boy sitting in the middle is all tied up and is being danced around by the electronics. His eyes look like they have hypnotize in a trance as if put under a spell by the electronics and can’t get out of it. As well as all the electronics have a sort of evil look on their face like they plan to suck humans into a world controlled by them. I believe the idea of this image is to show that people sometime don’t even rule themselves any more that the electronics they own rule their life for them. We can’t control that the electronics are getting out of hand in this society. It shows this by the guys eyes in the photo and how he looks to be hypnotised; the electronics have evil looks on their faces. The overall message to this picture is that electronics can be so addicting it takes over our lives and we don’t even realize it: just look around the room right now, how many electronics do you see. We don’t need these things in life; you will say no we do and I know you will but you have never lived a life without them so how would know if life would have been better? You don’t. All these electronics have surrounded this guy tied him up and are either playing music/singing around him while they have him tied up. This just shows us that they are becoming over taking with our lives. All four of these images show that people basically strive for their phones; some in different ways. They also show how people have become so addicted to this fake world almost that they don’t care about their safety or other peoples hurting. Electronics are becoming overwhelmingly addicting to some people that sometime we don’t realise there is more to life than being updated with the latest status on facebook or posting a picture on instagram to get a bunch of likes. Electronics should not have been invented, people use them for the wrong reasons and get away with sometime so they will do it again.

Philip Hammond to promise action on plan to tackle Google, Facebook, Amazon, Microsoft and Apple

A fresh bid to curb the market power of US tech giants will be signalled by Philip Hammond on Wednesday when he welcomes the findings of an independent review calling for government action to ensure companies including Google, Facebook and Apple face stiffer competition.

The chancellor will use his annual spring statement to promise action after a review conducted for the Treasury by Jason Furman, Barack Obama’s chief economic adviser, concluded that the dominance of the big digital players was curbing innovation and reducing consumer choice.

          Revenge of the English Majors      Cache   Translate Page      
I don't think the English language is robust or thorough enough for me to convey my hatred, despisement, and loathing of English majors.  They are first and foremost lazy people who decide to major in a language they're already fluent in by the age of 4.  They are intellectual inferiors who think studying a subject to the point of atomic levels of anal retentive detail is a legitimate endeavor.  And worst of all they are fascist tyrants who lord their technical, but impractical, knowledge of petty rules and laws of a "language" over the rest of us who use the language to live our lives, not make it our lives, because we have lives...unlike English majors.

I cannot overstate how inferior English majors are or how much I hate their loathesome and laughably inferior selves.

But they are getting their revenge.  And in a way most of you have no clue about.

Normally and in the past English majors got their revenge upon society by torturing young children in the public schools.  Completely unemployable and worthless elsewhere, America's English majors taught "English" to 100% conversant and fluent English speaking kids.  Having no real value they focused on technicalities like the difference between adverbs and adjectives (I, as a professional author, still don't know the difference) and would likely masturbate themselves as they awarded C's and D's to young 10 year old children who were smarter and superior to them but still couldn't identify "dangling participles" or other truly irrelevant and pointless shit nobody ever cared about.  Most of these teachers were females and spinsters because to be something of worth in society takes effort, and ergo it's no shock the majority of English teachers were fat, bloated, middled aged women because to be comely and attractive takes effort.  But still, they got their retaliatory pound of flesh by essentially abusing the children of those who managed to breed, grating their skin over the pointless minutiae of the rules of English.

It wasn't fair, but these (predominantly) women ended up paying for their laziness and sloth.  They were fat.  They were miserable.  No man loved them.  No man wanted them.  All students hated them.  And truly, what society appreciates a nag, constantly pointing out your technical incorrectnesses?  These women died lonely, alone, and unloved, and I cannot think of a better prison sentence than that.  But do not think just because the last baby boomer English teacher spinster may be breathing her last breath at an unvisited government funded nursing home that the scourge of English majors has left us.  They are coming back in force.  And in an area you, I, and everybody else never asked for.

Social media.

I was first tipped off to the return of the English majors when nearly every book I wrote was flagged as having "errors" when KDP (aka "Kindle") was merged with Createspace (AKA "Amazon").  Never mind some of these books have been published for over a decade.  Thoroughly and adequately gone over by my wonderful staff of editors and friends.  And never mind nobody who purchased the books had an actual complaint.  No, some nitwit got a burr in their saddle and decided to go over ALL of my books and point out, via constant e-mail reminder, that there was a missing word, a missing comma, an errant "the" in my books.  And so I had to waste precious amounts of my time going online and correcting these minor typos that nobody ever complained about except Amazon.

But then it dawned on me.  It wasn't Amazon per se.  It certainly wasn't my readers.  But the anal retentive details, the complaining and nagging had the distinct genetic mark of my most loathed and detested enemy - english teachers.  It hasn't been for 30 years I got so much lecturing, nagging, and sermoning that it dawned on me a horrific reality that Amazon is hiring English majors to go over every nook and cranny, every sentence and word, every punctuation mark and hyphen of my decade-and-change worth of literary work all to catch a mere fucking typo.  And this, sadly, is an English major's wet dream come true.

Because if every book I've ever written is now getting the 3rd degree, where will it end?  It's already well known that social media companies like Facebook and YouTube use "censors" to edit and audit nearly ALL social media posts (which I think is a pointless endeavor).  Amazon is obviously hiring people to go over every word I've published with a fine comb.  But my main concern is the caliber and type of people who they're employing and I'm afraid I have my answer. Because it isn't cool libertarian economics majors letting authors be to write what they want when they want.  It isn't engineering majors who don't care about the details as long as the logic, message, and purpose of the book is right.  It's the worst, most vile, most evil, and tyrannical group of anti-thinking people you could even put in charge of a Department of Censorship

English Majors.

And heaven help us.

Much as I appreciate Twitter, Facebook, YouTube and other social media giants being private companies, I also am aware of the damaging effects of monopolies.  And while I'm quite libertarian in allowing them to ban, prohibited or do pretty much whatever they want with their platforms, the concept of employing CENSORS is appalling and I think gives right to the government to break them up.  But when you make those censors NOT freedom-loving-libertarians who value disagreement over accord, who are usually prone to letting people say what they want to say, but put the veritable antithesis of "social-nazis" in the form of English Majors as your censors, then go straight to hell.  Because that is where your platform and company are going - straight to hell.

I would have liked to have seen nearly all English majors get what they deserve - unemployment.  Miserable unemployment while working at a cafe or bar.  Egomanics who are lazy on top of it deserve no better.  But now there is an entire industry that will gainfully employ English majors and that is the social media "Censor Industry."  The modern day STASI.  The modern day Gestapo.  You have a bunch of lazy ego maniacs who are now going to burden the rest of us productive adults, who are trying to convey concepts, ideas, thoughts, and visions, with their pointless technical knowledge of linguistic law.  Us real adults who are producing real thoughts and production now have to be burdened and bothered with our adjectives, adverbs, dangling participles and "wrong-think."  And what was once the truly great and truly open environment of the internet, self-publishing, authoring, and social media NOW we have to contend with a gestapo agent in our midst lest we have a minor typo in our book or speak something that is wrong-think and caused some precious snowflake to be "offended."

I hated my English teachers before in my K-12 education. They were truly evil women whose evil was only outdone by their worthlessness.  I'm glad most of them are dead and I'm glad most of them were never happy.  But you fucking English majoring nazis who are nothing more than modern day STASI are not only worthless, but evil on a whole new level.  At best you put your English-majoring-egos ahead of ideas and value nitpicking irrelevant typos in true genuises' works.  At worst you're anti-free speech nazis who comb over people's posts and comments on social media, eliminating them because you lack the intelligence to merely disagree with another person's opinion.  In the end though that's all you'll ever be - English majors.

Worthless, lazy, pieces of shit who could never write a book, never come up with an original idea, and can only get off by pointing out the irrelevant mistakes of others.

          Facebook Reverses Zero Hedge Ban, Says It Made A "Mistake"      Cache   Translate Page      

It has been a strange 24 hours.

On Monday, we first learned that for the previous two days, Facebook had banned all Zero Hedge content across its various mediums, as it went against Facebook's "Community Standards" (which to the best of our knowledge, neither we not anyone else has any idea what they are), a decision which - as we noted yesterday - surprised us for two reasons: not only do we not have an official Facebook account, but Facebook did not approach us even once with a warning or even notification.

While we were in the dark about what had triggered Facebook, or what was the company's motive, we were humbled and delighted not only with the media coverage this event received, but far more so with the outpouring of support we received from readers and across social media, where Zero Hedge had not been yet banned, like Twitter, where figures from various industries and across the political spectrum voiced support and came to our defense, with many condemning what we felt was an arbitrary decision.

Among those who spoke up were President Trump’s son Donald Trump Jr., Nigel Farage, Peter Thiel's liberal foil at Thiel Capital, Eric Weinstein, Infowars' Paul Joseph Watson and many others.

To them, and to everyone else who reached out - either to us or to Facebook, or "said something" in private or on the Interweb - our sincerest gratitude.

And then on Tuesday morning, everything had suddenly returned to normal, and whether due to the unexpectedly widespread support we received, or because Facebook had made a sincere error, the ban was reversed.

While Facebook has yet to contact us directly, they did comment with a Facebook spokesman saying that "This was a mistake with our automation to detect spam and we worked to fix it yesterday." He added that "we use a combination of human review and automation to enforce our policies around spam and in this case, our automation incorrectly blocked this link. As soon as we identified the issue, we worked quickly to fix it."

We still have no insight into which article(s) Facebook decided was sufficiently "spammy" to block everyone's access to our content, or on what basis Facebook's "automation and human review" had made the decision to quarantine our small website from the rest of Facebook's 2.3 billion monthly users.

But we are heartened by this development, not so much because it means a rebound in our traffic - as we observed yesterday, we are lucky in that Facebook represents a tiny source of our inbound referral traffic - but because it means nothing changes: we can and will continue as before, with zero adjustments to our writing style, and we will certainly continue with our highly critical coverage of all things Facebook. And best of all: it will be read on Facebook, allowing users of the world's biggest media company to escape an informational echo chamber, and be presented with contrasting opinions, which even if wrong, will allow countless readers to make more informed opinions than if served with preapproved, uniform, and ideologically palatable content.

And since some may read this as a quasi-official press release, we leave the "about us" part to the money-losing media venture of billionaire Mike Bloomberg's business empire (funded since day one by the procyclical $25,000/year Bloomberg terminal business), which yesterday described our little adventure as follows: "Since being founded in the depths of the financial crisis, Zero Hedge has built a dedicated following by serving up a mix of hardcore financial analysis and populist political commentary. Both the ‘Tyler Durden’ name and the site’s tagline -- "On a long enough timeline the survival rate for everyone drops to zero” -- are borrowed from the anarchic cult classic ’Fight Club.’


          Father Of The World Wide Web Warns "Perverse Incentives" Have Made The Internet "Dysfunctional"      Cache   Translate Page      

British computer scientist Tim Berners-Lee - known as the inventor of the World Wide Web, says that the internet has become a cesspool of "clickbait and the viral spread of misinformation," which needs to be "changed for the better," reports CNBC

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Image via Wikimedia Commons

In a Monday letter marking 30 years since he created a blueprint for the WWW in March 1989, the 63-year-old Oxford/MIT professor outlined three "sources of dysfunction" affecting the internet today; malicious behavior such as state-sponsored hacking and online harassment, "perverse" incentives driving misinformation, and unintended negative consequences such as polarizing, unhealthy conversations. 

"Governments must translate laws and regulations for the digital age," said Berners-Lee. "They must ensure markets remain competitive, innovative and open."

Berners-Lee singled out Google and Facebook for rewarding clickbait and misinformation. He has previously knocked the tech giants for exploiting people's personal data. 

"Companies must do more to ensure their pursuit of short-term profit is not at the expense of human rights, democracy, scientific fact or public safety," reads the Monday letter. 

Last October, Berners-Lee's World Wide Web foundation released a new blueprint in order to help put the web back on its original course. Known as the "Contract for the Web," the plan calls for governments to ensure that everyone can connect to the internet - which is kept "available, all of the time," and respects people's "fundamental right to privacy." It also calls on businesses to make the internet affordable to everyone as well as respect data privacy rights. 

One pillar of the contract is treating the web as a basic right for everyone, an idea that is far from reality today. The World Bank estimates roughly half of the world's population still does not have access to the internet. In a report published Monday, the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) found more than four in 10 rural households in OECD countries don't have access to the fast fixed broadband needed to support the Internet of Things, whereas nearly nine in 10 households in urban areas have fast connections. -CNBC

Berners-Lee told Vanity Fair last year that he was "devastated" over what the web had become, and had launched a new online platform and company, Inrupt - described as a "personal online data store," or pod, where everything from messages, music, contacts or other personal data will be stored in one place overseen by the user instead of an array of platforms and apps run by corporations seeking to profit off personal information. The project seeks “personal empowerment through data” and aims to "take back" the web, according to company statements. 

At MIT Berners-Lee has for years led a team on designing and building a decentralized web platform called 'Solid' — which will underlie the Inrupt platform. The Inrupt venture will serve as users' first access to the new Solid decentralized web:

If all goes as planned, Inrupt will be to Solid what Netscape once was for many first-time users of the web: an easy way in. And like with Netscape, Berners-Lee hopes Inrupt will be just the first of many companies to emerge from Solid.

“I have been imagining this for a very long time,” says Berners-Lee.

As described on the Solid and Inrupt websites the new platform will allow users to have complete control over their information 'pods' (an acronym for "personal online data store") — it is only they who will decide whether outside apps and sites will be granted access to it, and to what extent. 

In short, unlike Facebook or Twitter where all user information ultimately resides in centralized data centers and servers under control of the companies, applications on Inrupt will compete for users based on the services they can offer, and only the users can grant these apps "views" into their data, making personal data instantly portable between similar applications.

"The main enhancement is that the web becomes a collaborative read-write space, passing control from owners of a server, to the users of that system. The Solid specification provides this functionality," reads the website. 

Asked whether his plans could impact billion-dollar business models that profit off of controlling user data, Berners-Lee shot back: 

"We are not talking to Facebook and Google about whether or not to introduce a complete change where all their business models are completely upended overnight. We are not asking their permission."

          Spectacular Heineken St Maarten Regatta      Cache   Translate Page      
J/122 sailing Caribbean
J/122 and J/105s Collect Lots of Silverware!
(Simpson Bay, St. Maarten)- The 37-square-mile island of St. Maarten was first settled by the Arawaks and was discovered by Christopher Columbus on behalf of Spain in 1493. Columbus sighted the island on November 11th, the holy day of St. Martin of Tours, and so named the island after him. For the next 150 years the island was passed between Holland, England, France and Spain. The old stone forts that guard many of the island’s inlets are proof of the island’s turbulent past. In 1648, St. Maarten was peacefully divided between The Netherlands and France, and today is the smallest landmass in the world to be shared by two sovereign nations.

Continuing in the traditions of its seafaring heritage, the leadership on the island concluded they should invite yachtsmen from the Caribbean to enjoy their fun-loving approach to life and created the first St Maarten Regatta in 1980.  Now in its 39th year, the notion of having “Serious Fun” has evolved into the largest regatta on the winter Caribbean racing circuit- the wildly successful Heineken St. Maarten Regatta, sailed off Simpson Bay.
J/122 sailing St Maarten Heineken Regatta
The 2019 edition may be remembered as the “best ever” by the 110 teams and 1,500+ sailors; with simply amazing weather conditions all four days of the regatta from February 28th to March 3rd, Thursday to Sunday. All four days were marked by blazing sun, 10-20 kt tradewinds, 3-6 ft seas, and temperatures hovering in the low 80s.  Basically, postcard perfect, Chamber of Commerce sailing conditions.

Several J/Crews participated in this year’s event. The J/105s trounced their CSA 4 Racing class while the J/122s also pushed everyone hard in CSA 3 Racing class to collect more silverware for their trophy rooms! Following are the daily reports that outline the Serious Fun and hot racing action each day.
J/145 sailing off St Maarten in Caribbean
Day 1- Almost Perfect Sailing?
With near perfect conditions, the start of the regatta saw the fleet streaming out through the bridge in time for the race starts.  Boats set their sails as they headed towards the three separate start areas.  The wind, which had been fairly steady at 14 knots, piped up, sending some 20 knot gusts through the fleet, making for some white knuckle excitement amongst the crews.

In Marigot Bay, the ORC Performance fleet, along with the CSA classes 1, 2 and 3 had been set a windward-leeward course, which led to some extremely close competitive racing. A unique feature of the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta is that all classes finish at the Heineken mark, close to the famous lifting bridge into the lagoon and the Port de Plaisance Marina where the majority of the boats are moored.  By 3pm, the boats were lining up to get through the bridge, with the customary celebrations, dancing and fancy dress to entertain the crowds, many with a welcome cold Heineken in hand!

After recuperating from the RORC Caribbean 600 Race, the J/145 KATARA, skippered by Roger Gatewood from St Petersburg, FL, managed a solid performance on the opening day in the seven-boat CSA 2 Racing class.  His largely Tampa Bay crew pulled off a 3rd and 4th to be sitting in third place.

Similarly, Pam Baldwin’s J/122 LIQUID from Antigua started off somewhat emphatically with a bullet in their first race of the eight-boat CSA 3 Racing class.  That opening gambit was followed up by a 4th in race two to close the day sitting in third position on the podium sitting just one point from first place.

The largest class in the regatta was the fifteen-boat CSA 4 Racing class.  Having such a large group of boats that ranged from 30 to 44 feet on the starting line made for some interesting (and harrowing) moments.  Reveling in the conditions was the classic J/30 BLUE PETER/ CARIBBEAN ALLIANCE INSURANCE, skippered by the Antiguan duo of Tanner & Shari; their 2-2 for just 4 pts. However, their points total was matched by the Barbados team on the J/105 WHISTLER, skippered by Peter Lewis; technically leading their fleet with a 3-1 for 4 pts, too.

Perhaps the craziest scenario that one could imagine took place on Jordan Mindich’s J/105 SOLSTICE. After rounding the weather mark in 1st place boat-for-boat in the fleet, they set the spinnaker, started to plane down a few waves, then lost their steering. Consequently, after spinning out, broaching, and getting the spinnaker down, they discovered their steering cable broke.  A quick “fix” was to insert the aluminum emergency tiller in place at the top of the rudder shaft and keep racing!  Unfortunately, it is quite difficult to steer a J/105 with a 3 foot tiller on a poorly-balanced rudder in big seas and big breeze. SOLSTICE salvaged a 7th in the first race and, still sailing with the short tiller, could only manage an 8th in the second race when the winds were blowing into the low 20's.

Day 2- Best’est Day Ever?
Amazing, best day ever, champagne sailing, and wow, just wow, what a day! Those were just some of the words that were used to describe Friday’s Round the Island Race.  For some it was serious sailing, and for others “Serious Fun”; but every sailor coming ashore after this epic race had a different story to tell, an unforgettable experience to recount, and a memory to savor forever.

The Round the Island Race is one of the highlights of the four-day event.  For many, this race offers the first time to see the whole island from the unique perspective of the sea.  For those who have sailed the regatta many times before, they know the excitement of a reaching start, the long beat up the channel between St. Maarten and Anguilla, and the challenges of the big Atlantic swell and choppy seas past Pelikan Rocks at the far eastern end of the island before the final 6.0nm leg to the Heineken finish line off Simpson Bay.

It’s a game of catch up, with the slowest boats starting first, while the super-fast Maxis and Ocean Racing class start last.  With at least 25 nautical miles ahead, not counting the extra distance required as boats zig-zag up the beat, for many boats it was going to be an exhilarating, action packed ride, while for others it was a chance to relax, enjoy the sights and top up the tan.

Peter Lewis and his crew on the J/105 WHISTLER won CSA Class 4. “We got the best start, sped off, and never saw the others in our fleet again,” said Lewis.  Nevertheless, Lewis was chased hard by the re-energized team on the J/105 SOLSTICE; Mindich’s crew produced a great performance, taking 2nd place for a J/105 sweep of the top two spots, finishing just 1 min 52 sec behind.

Meanwhile, the J/122s loved the Round Island Race, with Baldwin’s LIQUID taking third place to hang onto their 3rd position overall; they were a scant 4 sec back on corrected time from second place!  Their stablemate, the J/122 EL OCASO sailed by TEAM SLOVAKIA also sailed fast to take fourth place just 45 secs behind on corrected.

Gatewood’s gorgeous J/145 KATARA again won the race on elapsed in CSA 2 Racing class, but could only manage a 4th on corrected.  Despite soundly beating two XP44s and a First 47.7 by at least eight minutes elapsed, they could not correct out on handicap time over those boats optimized for the Caribbean circuit- all sailing with #3 jibs of 102% to 109% LPs.  Later, the KATARA crew would lament that not getting rated with their 135% #2 cost them the series, e.g. an easy win!

Day 3- More Gorgeous Weather- Hallelujah!
Saturday’s racing saw some exciting starts and closely fought first beats.  With a more easterly breeze, the fleet again enjoyed 10-20 kt winds and big seas all day.

The CSA 2, CSA 3 and CSA 4 fleets had two short races, setting off from Simpson Bay to beat up to a windward mark set just off Fort Willem.

In the CSA 2 Class, the “pecking order” was beginning to manifest itself and continue, coincidentally, for the last three races of the regatta.  Winning every race boat-for-boat by at least 9-10 minutes was Gatewood’s J/145 KATARA.  Having consigned themselves to on-the-water victory, the crew made the most of it and partied home to the Heineken finish line, collecting two more 4th places to end the day in 4th overall.

Loving the format for the two races and loving the conditions were the twin J/122s.  The first race was shorter and took an hour elapsed, while the second was at least twice as long and took around two hours to complete.  In the first race, the corrected time spread for the top four boats was a mere 54 secs. Taking third was Baldwin’s LIQUID with a time of 54:54, while just 2 secs back was TEAM SLOVAKIA’s EL CASO finishing with 54:56! In the second, much longer, race, Baldwin’s LIQUID team launched themselves into a big lead and never looked back, winning the race by nearly 2 minutes corrected time.  That result put them into third overall with just one race left.  TEAM SLOVAKIA EL OCASO missed third by just 6 secs; they could be seen later mumbling in their Heineken pints about how they had left at least 30 secs on the race track due to boathandling errors!

In CSA 4 Class, there was a significant reshuffling of the leaderboard after two boats sailed the wrong course, most notably the regatta leader, the J/105 WHISTLER.  Sailing “lights out” was Mindich’s J/105 SOLSTICE, winning both races to vault up the ladder to second overall.  Lewis’ WHISTLER was DSQ’d in the 5th race for rounding the wrong mark.

Day 4- Thrilling, Sparkling Finale!
On Sunday, the competitors were again greeted with the unforgettable memory of sparkling azure blue seas, sandy white beaches and windswept ragged rocks.

For the final day’s racing, Race Director Paul Miller and his team devised a format that would create a wall of sails as the boats streamed downwind to the Heineken finish marks.  Using two different start areas, the slower boats set off first, with all the boats sailing to the same first windward mark, before heading different course lengths along the south coast and for the faster, classes, up the east coast of St. Maarten, then turning back past Pelikan Rocks on a long spinnaker leg to the finish.

“We set courses of differing lengths, which will get as many boats as possible spinnaker sailing together back towards the finish, creating an amazing and memorable visual image of boats heading back towards the airport and bridge,” said Paul Miller.

For many classes, this final race would prove crucial to the overall results.  For some, their results had already ensured a place on the podium.  With the 15-18 knot trade winds, nearly all the boats chose to close tack up the shore, with the shifting wind and choppy seas approaching the famous Pointe Blanche, providing plenty of opportunities to win or lose places.

CSA 4 class was won by Lewis’ J/105 WHISTLER who took the bullet in the final race to win the class overall. The skipper on SOLSTICE, Jordan Mindich commented, “it was a fun race against Peter’s team on WHISTLER. We rounded the Heineken Gate in the lead, expecting to win the final race, but a few crew errors on our part, and one last huge surf down a wave right at the finish by WHISTLER gave them the win by just 2 sec corrected. Congratulations to them, it was a well-deserved win overall.”

At the prize giving, Lewis’ WHISTLER was presented with the “Most Worthy Performance Overall” Trophy by the Minister of Tourism- Stuart Johnson.  Needless to say, the WHISTLER crew was jubilant, as it was the first time ever to win the honor.

In a similar fashion, CSA 3 Racing class had a very tense final race for the top three leading boats. Baldwin’s J/122 LIQUID again stomped, crushing their class with an emphatic boat-for-boat win by 3 min 30 sec, believing they had won the final race as they savored their beers after the finish. However, that huge margin on elapsed time was not enough, as they later discovered they took second place by a mere 4 sec on corrected time.  A bit frustrated they were! However, to add to their thrilling, anxious finale, that meant they were tied on points at 10 each with Scarlet Oyster; but won the tie-breaker to take the silver!

Meanwhile, Gatewood’s J/145 KATARA again won their class by over 4 min elapsed and, yet again, settled for fourth place to take fourth for the regatta in CSA 2 Racing class.

The Heineken St. Maarten Regatta delivered on its promise of four days of serious sailing, with upwind legs dousing the crews hiking on the rails with warm water from the waves breaking over them.  Spectacular champagne sailing with roller coaster downwind legs, with a myriad of colorful spinnaker kites flying in the trade winds.

For the sailors, the adrenalin of achieving the perfect start, the tension of getting the tactics right, the physical challenges of racing to the max, and the relief and jubilation as the boat crossed the famous Heineken finish line were all part of the serious sailing experience.

And, as the crew celebrated their day on the water, there was the fun of the boats jostling to get through the lifting bridge, with music, on-board dancing, outrageous dressing up, with the cheers and dousing from water pistols aimed at the boats from the crowds observing the procession from the Sint Maarten Yacht Club.  In the lagoon’s marinas, the crews cracked open ice cold Heineken and relaxed in the sun, chatted over the day’s activities before getting ready for the final night of Serious Fun.

Crews, families and friends savored the tasty offerings from local restaurants in the regatta village, sharing the banter with old friends and new, before the Regatta Village turned, yet again, into the best festival venue ever, with the massive stage set up for an outstanding line up of artists playing serious funk, Caribbean jam, hip hop to reggae, and the final night’s legendary sets from Shermanology, Orange Grove and The Jacksons.

It’s the combined mass of all these elements that make the St. Maarten Heineken Regatta a unique event attracting more than 1,500 sailors from 22 countries.  The event has seen widespread praise, enthusiasm and overwhelming support for everyone involved, especially in the wake of recovery from the devastation incurred by Hurricane Irma.  The most frequently used phrases heard from sailors during the week included, “a great day sailing”, “it’s the best”, “awesome” and “we’ve had an amazing time”.  In other words, “Serious Fun”!   Sailing photo credits- SaltyColours/ Laurens Morel

Photos   Friends of Stower Seven Lakes State Trail Stower Seven Lakes Trail started as a far-off dream by local residents to provide a safe location for numerous 'silent sports' such as bicycling, running, cross-country skiing, and snowshoeing. This dream came to fruition after many hours of volunteer lobbying and labor. During the summer of 2010, crushed limestone was applied to an abandoned railroad bed, providing the smooth surface ideal for cycling and running.
The trail was named to recognize the exceptional natural resources traversed throughout and the longtime public service and leadership demonstrated by Amery’s own Harvey and Marilyn Stower. Harvey Stower served in the Wisconsin Legislature and as Mayor of Amery for many years.
During the initial years, the trail was compacted by use, and resurfaced to ensure an even path for guests and members. This 14-[Trail%25207-22-12%2520117%255B3%255D.jpg]mile trail extends between the trailheads at Soo Line Park in Amery and Lotus Lake County Park in Osceola/Dresser. From the Osceola/Dresser end it’s a short trek to the Gandy Dancer Trail, Interstate Park with camping, and the Polk County Visitor Center where a variety of information and maps are available for the area. Parking and rest areas are located in Deronda, Wanderoos and Nye. Restrooms are generally open from May to October.
The trail is a beautiful place to run, walk, ride a bike or just sit on a bench and take in the beauty that surrounds you. Not only are there seven lakes around which to meander, there are also a variety of plants and wildlife species to be viewed. To make the journey more enjoyable, rest stops have been developed which include parking spaces, restrooms, drinking fountains and picnic tables. Trail users will also notice the mile markers and point of interest signs which aid in identifying one's location.
[Trail%25207-22-12%2520109%255B3%255D.jpg]Pack a picnic and have lunch along the way, or feel free to travel light. Adjacent to the trail you'll find a restaurant in Wanderoos, which was formerly a school from 1909-1967. The towns of Amery, Osceola, Dresser, and St. Croix Falls offer many eateries. Along the way, between mile markers 10 and 11, veer to the North and follow the signs to beautiful Dwight Lake. Relax at the peaceful swimming beach on this hidden gem!

          ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியின் பயிற்சியாளராக மீண்டும் சினேடின் சிடேன்      Cache   Translate Page      
Wednesday, March 13, 2019 - 01:00

உலகின் முன்னணி கால்பந்து அணிகளில் ஒன்றான ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியின் புதிய பயிற்சியாளராக மீண்டும் சினேடின் சிடேன் நியமிக்கப்பட்டுள்ளார்.

10 மாதங்களுக்கு முன்னதாக அணியின் பயிற்சியாளர் பொறுப்பை துறந்த, 46 வயதான சினேடின் சிடேன், தற்போது அணியின் நிலையை கருத்திற் கொண்டு அணியை மீள கட்டியெழுப்புவதற்காக பயிற்சியாளர் பொறுப்பை ஏற்றுள்ளார். இதற்கமைய சினேடின் சிடேன், எதிர்வரும் 2022ஆம் ஆண்டு வரை தனது பயிற்சியாளர் பதவியை தொடர ஒப்பந்தம் செய்யப்பட்டுள்ளார்.

மீண்டும் அணியின் பொறுப்பினை ஏற்றதனை எண்ணி மிகவும் மகிழ்ச்சியடைவதாக, சினேடின் சிடேன், இதன்போது கூறியுள்ளார்.

தற்போது அணியின் பயிற்சியாளர் பொறுப்பை ஏற்றுள்ள சினேடின் சிடேன், இதற்கு முன்னதாக 3 ஆண்டுகளாக ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியின் பயிற்சியாளராக செயற்பட்டுள்ளார்.

இவர் பயிற்சியாளராக இருந்த காலகட்டத்தில், ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி, யு.இ.எப்.ஏ. சாம்பியன் லீக் கிண்ணத்தை மூன்று முறையும், பீபா கழக உலகக் கிண்ணத்தை இரண்டு முறையும், யு.இ.எப்.ஏ. சுப்பர் கிண்ணத்தை இரண்டு முறையும், லா லீகா கிண்ணத்தை ஒரு முறையும், சுப்பர் கோப்பா கிண்ணத்தை ஒரு முறையும் வென்றது.

சம்பியன் கிண்ணத்தை வென்றுக்கொடுத்த கையோடு கடந்த ஆண்டு மே மாதம் சினேடின் சிடேன், ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியிலிருந்து விடைபெற்றுச் செல்ல, ஸ்பெயினின் ஜூலன் லோபெட்டிகுய், பயிற்சியாராக நியமிக்கப்பட்டார்.

எனினும் அவரது பயிற்சியில் திருப்தி இல்லாத ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி நிர்வாகம், அவரின் ஒப்பந்தத்தை இரத்து செய்து, ஆர்ஜன்டீனாவின் முன்னாள் வீரரான சன்டியாகோ சொலாரியை பயிற்சியாளராக நியமித்தது.

அதன்பிறகு சற்று எழுச்சிக்கண்ட ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி, சில வெற்றிகளை பதிவு செய்தாலும், பல அணிகளிடம் அவமான தோல்வியை சந்தித்தது.

குறிப்பாக அண்மையில் நடைபெற்ற அஜாக்ஸ் அணியுடனான சம்பியன்ஸ் லீக் இரண்டாவது லெக் போட்டியில், ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி, 1-4 என்ற கோல்கள் கணக்கில் அவமான தோல்வியை சந்தித்து தொடரிலிருந்து வெளியேறியது.

அத்தோடு லா லிகாக கால்பந்து தொடரில், பரம எதிரியான பார்சிலோனா அணியுடனான தோல்வி, கோபா டெல் ரே தொடரிலிருந்து வெளியேற்றம் என ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி படுதோல்வியை சந்தித்தது.

இதற்கிடையில், அதாவது சினேடின் சிடேனின் விலகலின் பின்னர், ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி கழகங்களுக்கிடையிலான உலகக்கிண்ணத்தை மட்டுமே வென்றது.

இத்தனை தோல்விகளை கடந்து வந்தாலும், இறுதியாக நடைபெற்ற அஜாக்ஸ் அணியுடனான தோல்வி, அணி நிர்வாகத்தை மட்டுமல்ல இரசிகர்களையும் கடும் அதிருப்திக்குள்ளாக்கியது.

இதனால், அணியை மீள கட்டியெழுப்ப வேண்டுமென்ற நோக்கோடு, தற்போது சினேடின் சிடேனை மீண்டும் பயிற்சியாளராக ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி நியமித்துள்ளது. ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியின் சொந்த கால்பந்து தொடராக பார்க்கப்படும் லா லிகா கால்பந்து தொடரில், ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணி, 51 புள்ளிகளுடன் மூன்றாவது இடத்தில் உள்ளது.

ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியிலிருந்து நட்சத்திர வீரரான கிறிஸ்டீயானோ ரொனால்டோ விலகி சென்றாலும், கேரத் பேல், செர்ஜியோ ரமோஸ், பென்சிமா உள்ளிட்ட பல நட்சத்திர வீரர்கள் அணியில் உள்ளனர்.

ஆகவே சினேடின் சிடேன், இவர்களை சரியாக வழிநடத்தி, மீண்டும் ரியல் மெட்ரிட் அணியை மீள கட்டியெழுப்புவார் என அணிக நிர்வாகம் மற்றும் இரசிகர்கள் என பலரும் நம்பிக்கை வெளியிட்டுள்ளனர்.

மேலும் 141 ஓட்டங்கள் பின்தங்கிய நிலையில் நேற்று (12) ஐந்தாவது நாள் ஆட்டத்தில் தமது இரண்டாவது இன்னிங்ஸை தொடர்ந்த பங்களாதேஷ் அணி நியூசிலாந்து வேகப்பந்து வீச்சுக்கு ஈடுகொடுக்க முடியாமல் 209 ஓட்டங்களுக்கு சகல விக்கெட்டுகளையும் இழந்து இன்னிங்ஸ் மற்றும் 12 ஓட்டங்களால் தோல்வியை தழுவியது.

By now you've heard the story: Elizabeth Warren wants to break up Big Tech, so her presidential campaign bought ads on Facebook talking about how Facebook is too powerful and should be cut down to size. Then Facebook blocked Warren's ads, making Warren's point for her.

This episode, Warren says, is a perfect example of why we should have "a social media marketplace that isn't dominated by a single censor."

But it's also a perfect example of an additional issue with Facebook: the social media giant's ongoing reliance on "outsourced content moderation."

The phrase, which I first noticed in this October 2018 New York Times editorial, describes how Facebook not only relies on users to produce its content for free but also, all too often, relies on users to police its content for free, too.

Facebook has lately hired thousands of moderators to deal with this issue (people working in low-paid positions that come with their own problems and traumas), but it's clearly not enough.

In the Warren episode, as in so many others, it was a journalist who had to nudge Facebook toward the correct content moderation response.

After Politico broke the story of Facebook blocking Warren's ads, the company backtracked and restored the ads in the interest of what it called "robust debate."

This kind of thing has happened many times before, in all kinds of variations. Very often, it's journalists pointing out content that Facebook hasn't taken down but should.

"Social media misinformation is becoming a newsroom beat in and of itself," the Times editorial explained, "as journalists find themselves acting as unpaid content moderators for these platforms."

Here in Washington State, to take yet another example, The Stranger has been providing ongoing, unpaid content moderation to both Facebook and Google because, while both companies say they've banned local political ads here (in order to avoid Washington's tough election ad transparency rules), both companies nevertheless keep on selling local political ads.

As the Times wrote months ago, "The companies have all the tools at their disposal and a profound responsibility to find exactly what journalists find — and yet, clearly, they don’t."

          Lala Kamara, 26enne bresciana, uccisa a Manchester. Si era trasferita per lavoro      Cache   Translate Page      

Una ragazza bresciana di 26 anni è stata trovata uccisa in un appartamento a Manchester, in Inghilterra, dove la polizia avrebbe già fermato due giovani sospettati del delitto. Lo riporta oggi il Giornale di Brescia.

Si tratta di una ragazza italiana di origini senegalesi, Lala Kamara, cresciuta in provincia di Brescia, dove ancora vive la sua famiglia, e residente a Calcinato. Si era trasferita nella città inglese tre anni fa per lavorare come infermiera.

LA DINAMICA - Intanto i familiari di Lala Kamara sono arrivati in Inghilterra. La giovane è stata trovata senza vita sabato 9 marzo, in serata, nel suo appartamento nel quartiere Denton. La magistratura ha disposto l'autopsia per accertare la cause della morte. Il corpo di Lala rientrerà in Italia tra qualche giorno: il funerale dovrebbe svolgersi il 16 marzo.

La Farnesina ha fatto sapere che "segue con la massima attenzione il caso ed è in costante contatto con i familiari della connazionale per garantire loro ogni possibile assistenza".


          Il regista arrestato a Roma inscenava finti cast con scene di stupro, ma le violenze erano reali      Cache   Translate Page      

Le illudeva con la promessa di guadagni milionari, set cinematografici e carriere di successo. Ma era solo la scusa per inscenare finti provini e poi abusare di loro, nel seminterrato della sua Accademia di recitazione a Roma. Ora Pino Flamini, il "maestro" come si faceva chiamare nei bandi diffusi online per i suoi casting, dovrà rispondere della pesante accusa di violenza sessuale aggravata e continuata nei confronti di cinque ragazze, di cui tre minorenni all'epoca dei fatti.

Per sette anni, dal 2011 al 2018, ha agito indisturbato. Reclutava le giovani attrici attraverso gli annunci online, promettendo fantomatiche partecipazioni a programmi e film di successo, anche della Rai. Le caratteristiche erano sempre le stesse: "età tra i 18 e i 22 anni, di bellissima presenza e non troppo alte". Obbligava categoricamente però a "non contattare direttamente o telefonicamente le produzioni", per evitare evidentemente di essere scoperto. La convocazione per il cosiddetto "colloquio conoscitivo" era sempre nella sua Accademia, nel quartiere Aurelio, a pochi passi dal Vaticano.

Qui organizzava i finti provini in cui l'uomo inscenava, in maniera ingannevole, uno stupro. A mettere fine agli abusi di Flamini, 69 anni, è stata la denuncia di due stretti collaboratori del sedicente regista e produttore. Ai carabinieri hanno raccontato tutto, delle violenze e delle trappole in cui venivano fatte cadere le ragazze che venivano adescate da false promesse di un futuro nel mondo dello spettacolo. Flamini è stato arrestato oggi proprio dai militari della compagnia San Pietro, eseguendo l'ordinanza di custodia cautelare emessa dal gip di Roma su richiesta della Procura della Repubblica. L'uomo si trova ora ai domiciliari. Il provvedimento prende origine dalle indagini condotte dai carabinieri e coordinate dal Gruppo reati contro le vittime vulnerabili della Procura di Roma diretto dal procuratore aggiunto Maria Monteleone.

La "carriera" di Flamini è costellata non solo di autoproduzioni cinematografiche e presunti crediti come regista, ma anche di partecipazioni e collaborazioni in ambiente musicale. Sulla sua pagina Facebook si definisce produttore, regista e direttore d'orchestra, con un passato alla Sorbonne di Parigi.

          Facebook Hits Elizabeth Warren With A Banhammer For Being Mean To Facebook      Cache   Translate Page      


Facebook doesn't seem too happy Elizabeth Warren. After the 2020 Democratic presidential candidate announced she would, if elected, try and break up big tech monopolies, her Facebook ads started disappearing across its platform. It's entirely possible that this is all part of some bizarre coincidence, but there's a chance that Mark Zuckerberg, drunk on power and Mountain Dew, hit Warren with a ban hammer for having the balls to call him on his bullshit. Maybe Warren was right?

Facebook has since restored Warren's ad "in the interest of allowing robust debate." A spox says that the ad violated their policies against using their corporate logo -- in this instance a lower-case "f" -- instead of the word "Facebook." None of Warren's other ads were taken down, but none of the other ads were videos arguing that Facebook buys up competitors to create a monopoly.


Shortly after Facebook restored the ads, Warren sent out a mean tweet criticizing Facebook for having the power to shut up anyone who calls Facebook a bunch of spiteful trolls who think they're infallible gods. She was joined by a chorus of legislators who've called to rein in big tech, like freshman Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez, who said, "Facebook may have its own problems but it's increasingly starting to look like our society (namely, our democracy) has a Facebook problem."


Warren's call to break up and regulate big tech companies has scared the hell out of people throughout the Bay Area. The San Francisco Chronicle quoted a number of Silicon Valley's super rich crying at the thought of Uncle Sam coming to bust them up. As the tech-bros see it, this won't do anything to stop the state-owned monopolies China has on its highly monitored magic kingdom of censored shitposts, and "you can kiss American tech leadership goodbye" if you suddenly start making big tech follow century-old antitrust regulations like every other business. In an interview with The Verge, Warren shrugs off her critics and compared her proposal to break up big tech to the consolidation of railroads in the late 1800s.

There was a period of time when the railroads figured out that they could make money not only by selling tickets on the railroad, but also by buying the steel company and then cutting the price of transporting steel for their own company and raising the price of transporting steel for any competitors. And that's how the giant grows ... So my principle is exactly the same: What was applied to railroad companies more than a hundred years ago, we need to now look at those tech platforms the same way.

With big tech companies reeling from another round of bad press, it was perhaps another remarkable coincidence that a story appeared in Politico this morning talking about Warren accepting campaign contributions from people working at the very companies she wants to bust up. According to Politico, Warren took in $90,000 from employees who work at Amazon, Google, or Facebook between 2011 and 2018. For comparison, Bernie Sanders took in well over a quarter million from the very same people in 2016. Is this a #SCANDAL, or evidence people working for big tech companies find San Francisco so unaffordable that they're forced to live in their cars and poop on the street? On Sunday, when asked about contributions from tech executives, Warren stated, "nobody has been beating down the door," and added, "I'm not in Washington to work for billionaires. I'm in Washington to help level the playing field so that everybody gets a chance to get out there and compete."

          Bye Bye Love. Wonkagenda For Tues., March 12, 2019      Cache   Translate Page      


Morning Wonketariat! Here's some of the things we may be talking about today.


There's so much fuckery in Trump's $4.75 trillion budget, we don't have nearly enough time to go through everything. Politico has a list of some of the winners and losers, the former being his golf buddies and Betsy DeVos, and the latter being poor people, the sick, and the elderly (thanks to massive cuts in Medicare and Medicaid previously sold as TrumpCare). WaPo notes that the administration is living in a complete fantasy believing that the economy is doing fine, counter to the analysis from every math geek who's ever used an abacus. Yesterday, OMB Director Russ Vought told reporters that it wasn't actually the Trump tax cuts (for the super rich) that ballooned the national debt, it was Obama. Earlier in the day, Vought appeared on CNBC to bitch and moan about the Mexican-Muslim taco truck invasion of the southern border, arguing that WALL was more important than sick, old, and/or poor people, and stated, "We're tired of being right." US TOO, BUDDY. Meanwhile, the GOP revolt over Trump's border wall has flipped Congress on its head as members consider measures ranging from overriding Trump's national emergency declaration, to limiting the presidential power to declare national emergencies.

In a bigass profile in WaPo, Nancy Pelosi finally said what's been hinted at for two years -- that she doesn't want to impeach Trump "unless there's something so compelling and overwhelming and bipartisan ... because it divides the country. And he's just not worth it." Some Democrats pushed back strongly on Pelosi's remarks, with Rep. Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez noting Trump met "the Lindsey Graham standard" for impeachment "multiple times." In speaking with Politico, House Oversight Chair Elijah Cummings called impeachment a "political process," and added, "You've got to have bipartisanship. Right now you've got 40 something percent of the country pleased, I guess, with what the president's doing. I think Pelosi realizes this."

Dick Cheney ripped Mike Pence a new asshole at a private meeting in Georgia over the weekend at a forum for a conservative think tank, according to a leaked transcript of the event. The war hawk criticized the Trump administration's foreign policy as being more limpwristed than Obama, complaining that Trump's idea to demand protection money from allies "sounded like a new York state real estate deal." Pence responded by reportedly asking, "Who wrote these softball questions?"

In a rare showing of bipartisan rebuke of the Trump administration, House Speaker Nancy Pelosi and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell have invited the NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg to Washington to address a joint session of Congress later this spring. The invite comes as Trump moves to charge US allies protection money to the tune of "cost plus 50."

Massachusetts Democratic Senator and 2020 candidate Elizabeth Warren suddenly found her ads calling for Facebook to be broken up taken down by Facebook. Facebook issued a statement saying the ads violated their policy of using its logos in advertising. Though the ads were later restored, they kind of proved Warren's point that Facebook is too goddamn big. Politico is stirring the pot this morning with a story about Warren taking money from Silicon Valley employees and selling her books on Amazon ... over the last decade.

Senators Ed Markey and Josh Hawley say they plan introduce a bill to amend the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act (COPPA). The bill would reportedly extend protections of children up to 15-years-old, and bar platforms from targeting ads at kids under 13. Roll Call notes it's unlikely to become a law even though multiple states and the EU have already moved forward with strict data privacy regulations aimed at keeping companies from fiddling with kids' heads. Here's an example of COPPA laws in action.

Democrats have chosen Milwaukee, Wisconsin, for their 2020 nominating convention. In a tweet, the party stated Milwaukee was "more than equipped."

Sen. Kirsten Gillibrand says her office was "thorough and professional" when it "thoroughly and appropriately" investigated sexual harassment allegations from a female staffer against Gillibrand's longtime driver and military adviser. In a brief scrum with reporters, Gillibrand said she has full confidence about the "professional and thorough" investigation that was now "thorough and complete." He must be a good man, and thorough.

Former Democratic Rep. Beto O'Rourke is headed to Iowa to help state Senate candidate Eric Giddens in a special election while simultaneously reaching out to former Obama people and courting activists. Beto hasn't announced #HesRunning (yet), but political wizards think it's just a matter of time.

Former Georgia Democratic gubernatorial candidate Stacey Abrams clarified remarks she made at SXSW stating she hadn't decided if #ShesRunning in 2020, and said the possibility was "on the table." Abrams's initial remarks were that she kept a spreadsheet with gigs she wanted, and 2028 would have been the earliest she would run for president.

According to court records, a Roy Moore supporter pleaded the Fifth 65 TIMES when asked if he had tried to bribe the lawyer representing one of Moore's accusers to drop the client and issue a damning statement to Breitbart. What initially started as a defamation suit has grown to engulf Steve Bannon's rightwing shit rag. SCANDAL!

Those rascally radicals in antifa have dug up racist and anti-Semitic chat logs from from Bennet Bressman, the statewide field director for Nebraska's uber rich Republican Gov. Pete Ricketts. The 22-year-old Bressman says the logs, which date back to last year, were from a long time ago and no longer reflect who he is as a person, though screenshots of Bressman's social media accounts show him teaching people about "chad nationalism," joking about running down Black Lives Matter activists with his white car, dropping n-bombs and racial stereotypes, as well as old fashioned gay-hatin'. [Logs]

Current Florida man and former Maine Republican Gov. Paul LePage started cold calling radio shows (again) to say those damn dirty Democrats get all their money from the JEEWWZZ, and that Rep. Ilhan Omar "completely vindicated" his long history of hate mongering. [Audio]

As British Prime Minister Theresa May faces the rapidly approaching zero for a "no-deal" Brexit scenario, the EU and UK agreed to a changes over the Irish backstop and permanent customs union. HOWEVER, the EU signaled the changes are by no means an end to negotiations just as a number of British MPs sounded off about their reluctance to support May's deal. If you're confused, don't worry, so is everyone else.

A new UN report says North Korea is cleverly avoiding oil, coal, and weapons sanctions, and hacking foreign banks to make some quick cash -- and that's on top of all the shady weapons testing programs they've quietly started back up. The report even includes photos of North Korean ships disguised as trading vessels illegally transferring energy and materials on the high seas, as well as the regime's smuggling of weapons to Iranian-backed Houthi rebels in Yemen, possible gold-mining in the Republic of Congo, and supplying Uganda with military training and weapons.

Lawyers for Roger Stone say they "clumsily" tried to tell the court about Roger Stone's book, and that they'd like to "move ahead without further ado," HOWEVER emails from Stone to his publisher show Stone bitching about a gag order interfering with his book sales, arguing for more money, and demanding fewer copies of the book be printed.

The Senate Intel Committee met with Simona Mangiante, the wife of George Papadopoulos, to ask about her old boss, ALLEGED Russian spy Joseph Mifsud. Mangiante told WaPo that she was "happy to provide information," emphatically adding, "Definitely not because I am a Russian spy." [No, she said that!]

Tucker Carlson refused to apologize for sexist and misogynist comments made to a shock jock's radio show unearthed by Media Matters. Tucker likened the campaign to have him and Jeanine Pirro "You're Fired" to a "mob" in a defiant monologue, and stated he planned to "fight it" while crying on the shoulder of Sean Hannity. Media Matters later released MORE damning audio of Tucker where he claims "white men" were responsible for "creating civilization," waxes philosophical about THE BLACKNESS of the Obamas, and whines that Iraqi people aren't "human beings" because they "don't use toilet paper or forks," and that they're actually, "semiliterate primitive monkeys," Shortly after Tucker's monologue, Fox News host Brit Hume tweeted, "Doing well is the best revenge," and linked to Tucker's TV ratings. Meanwhile, Variety's Brian Steinberg noted Tucker didn't have many ads during his show, and that's not a good sign (for him).

Two of the most prominent NRA board members tell the New York Times that NRATV's hard-right turn into fear mongering of apocalyptic race riots, ALLEGED grift, and shady Russian fuckery has forced them to reconsider what the hell they're all doing. Apparently Dana Loesch putting Thomas the Tank in a KKK hood was a little too much, even for gun fetishists chumming red meat.

After the Westboro Baptist Church decided to take a field trip to the Virginia state capitol and protest the state's first and only openly transgender lawmaker, Del. Danica Roem, the lead singer of heavy metal band Lamb of God organized a counter-protest with free kazoos. Several hundred people turned out in support of Roem, who herself fronts a local heavy metal band, and chased out the hate group out within 30 minutes.

          Ancora censura da FB, Venezuela: black out elettrico o block out tecnologico?, rinominare l’ambiente, corretta partecipazione alla vita pubblica, epitaffio di: Stefano Amoretti, il sistema sta implodendo, l’inganno dell’illuminazione…      Cache   Translate Page      

Il Giornaletto di Saul del 12 marzo 2019 – Ancora censura da FB, Venezuela: black out elettrico o block out tecnologico?, rinominare l’ambiente, corretta partecipazione alla vita pubblica, epitaffio di: Stefano Amoretti, il sistema sta implodendo, l’inganno dell’illuminazione…

Care, cari, facebook mi informa che “Ti è stato temporaneamente impedito di iscriverti a gruppi che non gestisci e pubblicarvi contenuti. La restrizione durerà fino a: giovedì alle 14:08.” – Ho risposto, per quel che serve: “Almeno fatemi sapere qual è l’azione incriminata e perché è meritevole di censura. Da parte mia non credo di aver commesso alcuna infrazione…” – Ovviamente nessuno ha risposto…

Venezuela. Black out elettrico o Block out tecnologico…? – Scrive Marinella Correggia: “Mentre a quanto pare in molte zone della capitale è durato di meno, a Barquisimeto dal giovedì 7 marzo alle 16 fino al 9 marzo alle 11 (quando sono tornata a Caracas con la corriera) ce lo siamo preso in pieno. Niente luce, dunque niente acqua (e cosa MOLTO meno importante, niente wifi e Internet)…” Continua:http://www.circolovegetarianocalcata.it/2019/03/11/venezuela-black-out-elettrico-o-block-out-tecnologico/

Commento di Nicolas Maduro: “Hanno usato un’arma dell’alta tecnologia… Gli estremisti di destra dell’opposizione sono gli autori e gli esecutori di questi attacchi contro il paese, e hanno usato l’alta tecnologia che solo il governo USA possiede. E noi lo sappiamo perché Dio è sempre dalla nostra parte. La verità verrà a galla”

Rinominare l’ambiente. La Terra casa di tutti! – La nostra Terra è  forse unica in tutto l’Universo, il solo pianeta per noi abitabile. In natura non esistono infatti due cose identiche,  prendiamo l’esempio di una foglia di un  albero  che non è mai uguale ad un’altra dello stesso albero, così è  anche per un cristallo di neve od un granello di sabbia, ognuno con la sua peculiarità.  La nostra Terra è il solo pianeta per noi abitabile ma la nostra  civiltà lo considera meno di un “valore aggiunto”. Quando i politici, gli scienziati e gli economisti prenderanno coscienza di ciò?  - Continua: https://bioregionalismo-treia.blogspot.com/2019/03/bioregionalismo-rinominare-lambiente-la.html

Commento di Marco Bracci: “Caro Paolo,  il compito dei pionieri (come anche dei profeti) è quello di gettare il seme, come dici tu, e aspettare che germogli, finché un giorno TUTTI SAPRANNO, PRENDERANNO COSCIENZA e AGIRANNO DI CONSEGUENZA. Quel giorno è vicino…” – Continua in calce al link soprastante

Epitaffio per un poeta – Scrive Gianni Donaudi: “Il poeta Stefano Amoretti (classe 1926) è mancato a Imperia (sua città natale e di residenza) alla bella età di 92 anni. Sullo sfondo dei libri di Stefano c’è una reale presenza di disintegrazione che sembra travagliare l’uomo d’oggi. E onde evidenziare tale disgregazione non è necessario dare risposte cattoliche, religiose  o moralistico-piccolo-borghesi in genere…” – Continua: https://retedellereti.blogspot.com/2019/03/in-memoria-del-poeta-stefano-amoretti.html

Spie e spioni. Ovunque – Scrive BBUS: “Il combinato disposto della Via della Seta più le reti di comunicazione 5G targate Huawei fa capire che c’e’ in gioco la sicurezza nazionale e la sovranità economica: l’Italia non può diventare il cavallo di Troia per la supremazia della Cina sull’Occidente”. Cosi’ all’ANSA il vicepresidente del Copasir, Adolfo Urso, sui possibili rischi di spionaggio determinati dalla concessione alle aziende cinesi delle reti per i cellulari di nuova generazione. Il Copasir sta svolgendo una serie di audizioni sul tema e la prossima settimana sentirà il premier Giuseppe Conte…”

Corretta partecipazione alla vita pubblica – Scrive Danilo D’Antonio: “Certi processi sociali non possono essere invertiti, condotti alla rovescia, pena la distruzione stessa del sistema. I populisti, persone al presente con scarse risorse capacitive, non possono accedere direttamente all’apice di una macchina complessa quale è uno Stato. E’ come affidare un transatlantico da crociera alla guida di bambini irritati…” – Continua: https://altracalcata-altromondo.blogspot.com/2019/03/european-laboratory-per-una.html

Ancona. Stupro consentito – “Scrive M.O.: “Ad Ancona, due stupratori peruviani, accusati di aver violentato una ragazza di 22 anni nel 2015, sono stati assolti perché, secondo la sentenza, la vittima assomiglia a un maschio. Insomma, è brutta. Quindi per legge si dichiara che: se vai in giro femminile come Dita Von Teese e ti stuprano, te la sei cercata. Se vai in giro come una camionista senza fronzoli, sei un cesso, e ti stuprano, ringrazia il cielo, non è possibile che volevano violentarti. Ti hanno fatto un’opera pia. Vanno premiati…”

Il sistema sta implodendo – Scrive Michael Snyder: “So bene che molte persone stanno anticipando da molto tempo il collasso economico globale e che molte di loro hanno perso la pazienza e vogliono solo ‘farla finita’ una volta per tutte. Beh, la verità è che nessuno dovrebbe desiderare di vedere ciò che sta arrivando. Personalmente, mi rallegro per ogni giorno o settimana o mese in più che ci viene dato. Ogni giorno in più è un altro giorno per prepararsi, per godersi il confortevole livello di vita che la nostra prosperità, alimentata dal debito, ha prodotto per noi…” – Continua: http://paolodarpini.blogspot.it/2016/03/il-sistema-basato-sul-debito-sta.html

Israele si prende anche il Golan siriano – Scrive Sputnik: “Il senatore Lindsey Graham ha promesso a Benjamin Netanyahu di intervenire con un’iniziativa per il riconoscimento delle alture del Golan come parte del territorio dello stato ebraico…”

L’inganno dell’illuminazione – Anni addietro mi venne l’idea di scrivere le mie memorie sugli incontri da me fatti con donne, uomini ed animali particolari, il testo l’avevo chiamato “incontri con i santi” (è ancora disponibili per chi ne facesse richiesta). Certo alcuni di questi cosiddetti “santi” appaiono come esseri umani un po’ anomali, e di difficile accettazione da parte delle masse di cercatori tradizionali… Una di queste “persone” particolari da me incontrate fu Uppaluri Gopala Krisnamurti – Continua: http://riciclaggiodellamemoria.blogspot.it/2013/07/uppaluri-gopala-krishnamurti-e-linganno.html

          Two 'Star' Proud Boys Hit With Felony Assault Charges for Portland Attack      Cache   Translate Page      
Photo Illustration by The Daily Beast

Two prominent members of the far-right Proud Boys men’s group have been charged with felony assault over a 2018 attack on a critic in Portland, prosecutors announced Tuesday.

Police have already arrested one of the Proud Boys, Donovon Flippo. The other Proud Boy wanted in the case, Tusitala “Tiny” Toese, posted recently on Facebook that he’s in American Samoa, although he said he will return to Portland to face his legal charges.

The arrests mark another blow to the Proud Boys, a pro-Trump men’s group created by conservative provocateur Gavin McInnes that requires its members to abide by various rules and initiation requirements, including a restriction on masturbating. Other members of the group were arrested last year after an attack in New York, and McInnes himself quit the group shortly after that.

          Anti-Vax Ad King Larry Cook Dethroned After Facebook Removes His Posts      Cache   Translate Page

Facebook announced Tuesday that it has removed advertisements paid for by Larry Cook—a prominent anti-vaxxer who targeted Washington-area women in ads during a measles outbreak—because the posts violated the social network’s policies.

“These ads were taken down in conjunction with our recently announced efforts to tackle vaccine misinformation on Facebook,” Devon Kearns, who works in policy communications at Facebook, told The Daily Beast. “Several of these ads contained verifiable hoaxes identified by leading global health organizations like the World Health Organization and the US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and were removed.”

Some of the ads included links to stories about children who died hours after receiving vaccines. Others touted natural immunity—becoming immune to a disease or virus by getting infected by it—as a “superior” method of protecting children from sickness.

          El Tribunal Constitucional admite el recurso contra la reforma de la LOPD y la creación de perfiles ideológicos      Cache   Translate Page      

El Tribunal Constitucional admite el recurso contra la reforma de la LOPD y la creación de perfiles ideológicos#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

La enorme polémica generada entorno al artículo 58 bis.1 de la Ley Orgánica 5/1985 de la LOPD ha hecho que diversos organismos, legisladores y expertos en este ámbito trataran de declarar dicha ley inconstitucional. Ahora estamos algo más cerca de que eso ocurra.

El Defensor del Pueblo interpuso hace unos días un recurso de inconstitucionalidad, y ahora el Tribunal Constitucional ha admitido a trámite dicho recurso. Eso, unido a la circular publicada ayer por la Agencia Española de Protección de Datos, plantea un difícil futuro para una potencial recolección de datos dirigida a crear perfiles ideológicos.

La sentencia no llegará previsiblemente antes de las elecciones (pero no importa)

En Xataka nos hemos puesto en contacto con Borja Adsuara Varela, que ha participado activamente en este debate, para que nos explique las consecuencias de esta decisión del Tribunal Constitucional.

Como nos señalaba Adsuara, es una lástima que el Constitucional no haya decretado la suspensión de la norma recurrida por el Defensor del Pueblo.

De hecho, nos explicaba, eso haría que tuviéramos que esperar a la sentencia definitiva para que quedara declarada como inconstitucional. Sin embargo esa sentencia tardará aún bastante, y es improbable que se produzca antes de las próximas elecciones generales del 28 de abril. "Hay algunos procesos que tardan 4 años en acabar con una sentencia en el Constitucional", aclaraba.

Aún así, la admisión por unanimidad de ese trámite hace presagiar que la norma acabará siendo declarada inconstitucional. Mientras tanto, destacaba, "tendremos la circular de la Agencia de Protección de Datos".

Esa circular, publicada ayer, establecía límites claros a lo que los partidos políticos podían hacer para enviar spam electoral.

Carta

En este documento se hace una interpretación "restrictiva y garantista", indicaba Adsuara, de la modificación de esa Ley Orgánica del Régimen Electoral General (LOREG) que añade el ya célebre artículo 58 bis.1, y limita mucho su ámbito de actuación.

Así, aunque los partidos políticos pueden recopilar datos, lo que no pueden es crear perfiles ideológicos. Eso significa que pueden enviar publicidad electoral, pero nunca de forma dirigida, algo que podría ser interpretado como una violación de la circular y que plantearía sanciones a los partidos que actuasen de esta forma.

Estas barreras plantean un obstáculo importante para esa teórica creación de perfiles ideológicos que por ejemplo se produjo en el escándalo de Cambridge Analytica con el que expertos como Adsuara comparaban estarevisión de la LOREG.

Las quejas sobre Q12 han volado en redes y foros durante los últimos meses. El pasado enero se publicaba un artículo en Menéame llamado "La estafa de Q12".

El artículo de Menéame al que nos referíamos no es la única queja pública que ha recibido Q12. Podemos encontrar desde hilos en Forocoches hasta tuits dirigidos a la cuenta de Twitter del juego.

La respuesta que suele dar Q12 (cuando da una respuesta) es que el bloqueo se produce porque sospechan que han cometido irregularidades. Nos hemos puesto en contacto con algunos de los usuarios que han protestado públicamente para que nos cuenten qué versión les dio la plataforma sobre su expulsión.

Uno de ellos nos explica que fue uno de las eliminados junto a otros usuarios en diciembre: "Tardaron mucho en responderme, pusimos mensajes en público en Facebook y Twitter... y finalmente nos escribieron a todos los afectados un 'copiapega' donde nos decían que sospechaban que hacíamos trampas".

Algunos usuarios han sido expulsados de la plataforma porque desde Q12 se ha detectado que participan organizados en grupos de Telegram o Discord, que tienen monitorizados

"No he llegado a saber en qué consistía mi supuesta trampa, aunque parece claro que se refiere a gente que ha ganado varias veces. Habré ganado como mucho diez veces, quizás menos, tras cinco meses jugando casi todos los días, ni siquiera era tan buena. Aunque estaba en el Top 9 porque un día gané 333,33 euros".

Otro jugador, baneado en septiembre, nos explica que sí recibió una llamada por parte del responsable de comunicación de Q12, cuya grabación nos ha facilitado. En ella le comunicaron su expulsión porque habían detectado que jugaba simultáneamente con dos móviles distintos. Él les respondió: "La otra cuenta es de mi madre, que juega conmigo en la misma habitación, hay gente que juega con varias cuentas y les habéis dicho que no pasa nada mientras sean cuentas de PayPal distintas".

El emisor de la llamada le respondió que "usted ha dicho públicamente que juega con dos móviles, [...] no solo es una clara ventaja respecto a otros usuarios, sino que usted es usuario activo de varios foros junto a cientos de personas, y esta forma de actuar va en contra de los principios de Q12. Esta llamada es simplemente para comunicarle, no para discutir, porque es una decisión que está tomada y era para avisarle que está vetado del juego, que tenga buenas tardes".

Con lo de los "foros junto a cientos de personas" se refiere a plataformas que usan algunos jugadores de Q12 para organizarse de cara a acertar más respuestas. En este caso, se refería a un un grupo de Discord en el que este usuario hablaba con otros jugadores y en el que mencionó que jugaba con dos móviles a la vez. Alguien de Q12 también estaba allí y así fue detectado: el juego tiene monitorizados los canales y grupos de Discord o Telegram en los que se organizan algunos jugadores.

"Si revisando nuestros datos vemos a alguien se sale de la media y sospechamos que hace trampas, lo baneamos"

Hasta ahora Q12 no ha monetizado su aplicación -razón por la que hay usuarios, como hemos visto antes, que sospechaban que los baneos se producían para ahorrar una parte del dinero de los premios-, pero Carlos nos explica que actualmente tienen "varias campañas cerradas con empresas de distintas índoles". Así que la llegada de ingresos de Q12 está al caer.

"Analizamos constantemente nuestra base de datos, vemos quién gana y quién no", nos cuenta Carlos cuando le preguntamos por los baneos dentro de Q12, "tenemos muchos datos para analizar y gracias a ello podemos detectar a los jugadores que se salen del patrón".

"Si en promedio los usuarios suelen ganar una vez, si acaso, ¿cómo es posible que alguien gane en cinco ocasiones? No hacemos preguntas imposibles, pero la mayoría son preguntas blindadas, que no pueden ser detectadas por sistemas automatizados, es sospechoso", dice Carlos. Su base de datos registra cualquier movimiento en la plataforma: si un usuario tiene un sistema automatizado, scripts, bots, patrones de conexión, tiempo de respuesta, un determinado porcentaje de respuestas correctas e incorrectas… Todo son factores que influyen para determinar si un usuario está incumpliendo las normas.

"Si revisando estas tablas alguien se sale de la media, lo revisamos. Si sospechamos y creemos de buena fe que esta persona tiene algo que le proporciona alguna ventaja según nuestro punto de vista, la baneamos", afirma.

Su sistema se encarga de destacar a este tipo de usuarios. Luego el equipo revisa el caso, y "si creemos de buena fe que tiene algo que le proporciona alguna ventaja según nuestro punto de vista, la baneamos" dice Carlos. Si Q12 tiene la sospecha de que un usuario hace trampas, le expulsarán del juego sin que pueda replicar.

Definición de "trampa"

az

"Si cumples ciertos patrones, el sistema te saca y luego hace el baneo", explica Carlos. "El sistema se puede equivocar, pero es porque le ponemos unos pesos a ciertos patrones: cuántas veces has ganado, cuántas has respondido bien, ratios... Es imposible que el 90% de las preguntas las hayas respondido correctamente". Incluso aunque el usuario no gane en el juego, automáticamente el patrón lo puede destacar como sospechoso si cumple ciertos parámetros como los antes mencionados.

"Estamos regalando dinero, es normal que nos encontremos con gente que intenta tomarnos el pelo, y por eso lo tenemos monitorizado, y si ganas dos veces ya te vamos a flaguear"

Aparte de eso, tienen monitorizados los grupos de chat sobre Q12 para evitar que haya usuarios que jueguen "de forma fraudulenta", grupos en los que puede haber cientos de usuarios organizados durante cada sesión de juego. "Evidentemente hay personas que usan sistemas automatizados, porque curiosamente siempre ganan los de Telegram", dice el fundador del juego.

Nos explica también que los términos y condiciones de uso se van a actualizar pronto para "añadir restricciones a los grupos de chats, rechazando los grupos de más de un número determinado de personas a la hora de jugar Q12". Norma no figuraba originalmente en el juego.

"Esto es nuestro día a día, pero ocurre con un porcentaje muy bajo de usuarios, del millón y pico de las personas que se han descargado la aplicación habremos baneado a unas doscientas; la cuestión es que estamos regalando dinero, es normal que nos encontremos con gente que intenta tomarnos el pelo, por eso lo tenemos monitorizado. Y si ganas dos veces ya te vamos a flaguear. Es poca gente haciendo mucho ruido".

Términos que podrían considerarse abusivos

Carlos nos explica que al igual que un local privado se reserva su derecho de admisión, ellos también: "Esto es una aplicación privada, has incumplido nuestras normas, ¿por qué? Porque nosotros lo sospechamos, lo vemos claramente, por lo tanto estás baneado, nos reservamos nuestro derecho de acceso".

Este tipo de términos, "aunque sea en un juego gratuito, han de ser claros y transparentes con el usuario, no pudiendo contener cláusulas que puedan considerarse abusivas", según nos explica Joaquín Muñoz, abogado especializado en juego y nuevas tecnologías, que nos cuenta también que a este concurso no le corresponde ser regulado por la Dirección General de Ordenación del Juego, el ente que regula juegos de azar como casinos o bingos, ya que el usuario no realiza un desembolso económico para jugar.

Q12 no entra dentro del ámbito de aplicación de la Ley de Regulación del Juego, ya que la participación se realiza de forma gratuita, y no se le considera concurso como tal

Por ello, Q12 no entra dentro del ámbito de aplicación de la Ley de Regulación del Juego, ya que la participación es gratuita, no está regulada como concurso, aunque haya un premio monetario final. Q12 argumenta esa gratuidad para justificar que "no puede haber lugar a queja por parte de los usuarios".

Joaquín lo ve de otra forma: "Un usuario puede ser también un cliente o consumidor aunque no haga un desembolso como tal. La cuestión es que Q12 no está sujeto a ninguna administración, pero eso no significa que no se le pueda denunciar o reclamar como consumidor".

Este juego está inspirado por la estadounidense HQ, quien también tiene estas cláusulas de no responsabilidad, las cuales se replican aquí. No obstante, "en España no funciona así, porque aunque el patrocinador indica en las cláusulas que el premio no está garantizado, se puede considerar publicidad engañosa a la hora de promocionar el juego", nos explica el abogado.

"Aunque el patrocinador en las cláusulas indica que el premio no está garantizado se puede considerar publicidad engañosa"

Sin embargo, Carlos Alcántara cree que "los usuarios no tienen sustancia legal para denunciarnos, es un juego gratuito donde nos reservamos el derecho de admisión, al registrarse en la aplicación uno firma estar de acuerdo con que tenemos el derecho de banear a alguien que no cumple las reglas o del que sospechamos de buena fe".

También afirma que ellos sí que tienen la potestad de denunciar a usuarios que usen métodos fraudulentos si lo saben a ciencia cierta: "Lo hemos pensado, pero sin llegar a hacerlo. Los americanos lo han hecho muchas veces. Cuando HQ llegó a su pico viral salieron muchos bots, plataformas de voz, etc. Y los abogados de HQ les mandaron una carta de cese y desista. De no hacerlo, se iban a emprender acciones legales, porque es un delito, y todos pararon de inmediato".

En cambio, Joaquín afirma que "por mucho que el usuario haya leído ese término, se puede considerar abusivo contra los derechos del mismo". Aconseja que a la hora de reclamar el baneo, o en caso de denunciarlo, lo mejor es presentar pruebas claras de que uno no ha hecho trampas a la hora de ganar.

          Descubren en China una misteriosa base de datos que clasifica a 1,8 millones de mujeres como "listas para reproducirse"      Cache   Translate Page      

Descubren en China una misteriosa base de datos que clasifica a 1,8 millones de mujeres como

Si China cada vez está más cerca de emular a 'Black Mirror' después de la implementación de su 'Crédito Social', ahora parece que podríamos estar ante una especie de 'The Handmaid's Tale'.

Victor Gevers, un desarrollador holandés que trabaja para la compañía GDI.Foundation, se encontró durante el fin de semana con una curiosa base de datos abierta cuyo servidor estaba en China, la cual contenía información privada de millones de mujeres con datos como edad, nivel educativo, estado civil, números telefónicos, ubicación, número de identidad, dirección y una columna que decía "BreedReady", la cual apunta, según la información, a un término que se usa para clasificar a aquellas mujeres que están listas para tener hijos.

Hasta el momento se desconoce el objetivo de esta base de datos

Según Gevers, es difícil determinar quién es el responsable de esta base de datos o cuál es el objetivo detrás de ella, lo que es un hecho es que después de haberse descubierto, la información fue retirada del servidor este lunes por la tarde sin dejar rastro.

De acuerdo al análisis del mismo Gevers, esta base de datos surge dentro del contexto de una preocupación por parte del gobierno chino ante la caída en las tasas de natalidad en el país, lo que tendría sentido que ahora se busque identificar a aquellas mujeres que están "listas para reproducirse".

Hasta este momento, Gevers continúa analizando y verificando los datos, por lo que no está claro si la información pertenece a un servicio de citas, el gobierno o alguna empresa u organización. El mismo Gevers descubrió hace unas semanas una base de datos que, afirma, pertenece a una compañía de vigilancia, cuyo objetivo es monitorizar a 2,5 millones de residentes en Xinjiang.

De entre los datos encontrados, hay 1,8 millones de registros de mujeres cuya edad promedio es de 32 años, la mujer más joven de la lista tiene 15 años y la más joven clasificada con 'BreedReady' tiene 18 años, mientras que la mayor tiene 39 años. La mujer de mayor edad de la lista tiene 95 años y ya no está clasificada como 'BreedReady'. El 89% de las mujeres de la base de datos son solteras y aproximadamente el 82% vive en Beijing.

La base de datos también incluye información acerca de preferencias políticas y algunos registros apuntan a un perfil en Facebook, algo curioso ya que Facebook está bloqueado en China. Ante esto, Gevers está empezando a cruzar la información con los supuestos perfiles enlazados en Facebook, esto con el objetivo de ver si la información es verídica.

Se espera que en los próximos días Gevers publique más datos acerca de esta base de datos, aunque adelanta que todo se basa en lo que pudo descargar antes de que fuera retirada de los servidores.
