          North Korea rocket launch ‘would be catastrophe for diplomacy’      Cache   Translate Page      

North Korea using a possible rocket launch as leverage in negotiations with the US would be catastrophic for global diplomacy, a South Korean presidential adviser has said. US-based websites recently released satellite photographs indicating North Korea has restored structures at its long-range rocket launch facility that it dismantled last year at the start of diplomacy with the United States. Other satellite images show increased vehicle activities at a separate North Korean facility used to manufacture missiles, and rockets for satellite launches. Some experts say these suggest North Korea may be assembling a long-range rocket to carry out a banned satellite launch in the wake of last month’s North Korea-US summit in Hanoi that ended without any agreement. Moon Chung-in, a retired university professor who is now a special adviser to President Moon Jae-in, told a panel discussion that North Korea using a rocket launch or other nuclear activities as leverage in negotiations would be a “bad move”. Mr Moon said such a North Korean move could eventually cause a “catastrophic” consequence or a “big disaster” in the US-North Korea diplomacy. “I wonder if North Korea should avoid” such an action, Mr Moon said. He said both North Korea and the US must restrain themselves to keep diplomacy alive and start unofficial contacts to resume talks. He said the Hanoi summit showed how “difficult” and “painful” it would be to achieve de-nuclearisation on the Korean Peninsula. The Hanoi summit fell apart due to disputes over how many sanctions reliefs North Korea could win in return for limited nuclear disarmament steps. Washington and Pyongyang accuse each other of causing the summit’s breakdown, but both sides have avoided harsh criticism against each other and expressed hopes for future negotiations. No official meeting between the countries has yet to be publicly scheduled. The February 27-28 summit was the second summit between North Korean leader Kim Jong Un and President Donald Trump since they met for the first time in Singapore last June.

          US will not accept 'incremental' disarmament, insists envoy to North Korea      Cache   Translate Page      

US will not accept 'incremental' disarmament, insists envoy to North KoreaStephen Biegun, the United States envoy to Pyongyang has stressed that Washington will not settle for the incremental disarmament of North Korea and that it is aiming for complete denuclearisation by the end of US President Donald Trump’s first term in 2021.  “We are not going to do denuclearisation incrementally,” Mr Biegun told a conference in Washington hosted by the Carnegie Endowment for International Peace, in his first comments since the failed summit between Mr Trump and Kim Jong-un in Hanoi, Vietnam, last month.  Mr Biegun insisted that sanctions would not be lifted unless Pyongyang completely eliminated its nuclear weapons, stressing that it was Washington’s goal to achieve this within the current administration.  "We stand by the expectation that if we fully mobilise our resources ... we could align ourselves in a manner sufficient to achieve this in something approaching a year," he said. His statements marked a reversal from previous pronouncements emerging from the White House, with analysts warning that the hardening of the US position is an unrealistic strategy that will end in further stalemate with Pyongyang.  Stephen Biegun, the US envoy to North Korea Credit: Ed Jones/AFP Ahead of the Hanoi meeting, Mr Trump had declared that he had “no pressing schedule” on denuclearisation. “As long as there is no [missile] testing, I’m in no rush,” he said.  Mr Biegun, meanwhile, had indicated in an speech at Stanford University at the end of January that the US was willing to take a more stage by stage approach to the issue – a policy favoured by Pyongyang.  “We have communicated to our North Korean counterparts that we are prepared to pursue – simultaneously and in parallel – all of the commitments our two leaders made in their joint statement at Singapore last summer,” he said, referring to the two leaders’ first meeting in the city-state last June.  Their second summit in Hanoi in late February ended abruptly without any kind of deal.  The Hanoi summit started out well but ended abruptly with no deal Credit: Evan Vucci/AP Mr Trump said that Kim had insisted all economic sanctions were lifted before he agreed to give up his entire nuclear arsenal – a position he could not accept. “Sometimes you just have to walk,” he said. However, Ri Yong Ho, the North Korean foreign minister, countered that Pyongyang had only requested “partial relief” on sanctions enacted between 2016 and 2017, and had offered a “realistic proposal” to dismantle uranium enrichment facilities in return.   The talks ended on friendly terms, but North Korea has since shown frustration at the collapse of the summit, with the state-run Rodong Sinmun commenting that the public “are feeling regretful, blaming the US for the summit that ended without an agreement.” In a more alarming development, experts at California’s Middlebury Institute of International Studies, said last week that satellite images suggested that Pyongyang could be preparing to launch a missile or space rocket.  In response to questions about what the signs of activity at rocket launch facilities meant, Mr Biegun replied: “The short answer is: we don’t know.” He added that “the door remains open” for further negotiations. “Nothing can be agreed until everything’s agreed,” he said.  Nuclear and North Korea analysts expressed scepticism about his statements.  “Biegun: “Nothing can be agreed until everything can be agreed.” – a losing strategy,” tweeted Jenny Town, a Korea specialist at the Stimson Centre, a Washington think tank.  Others commented that the insistence on full denuclearisation before the lifting of any sanctions would create a bottleneck with Pyongyang, which has consistently argued for reciprocal concessions.  “If we don’t move off this position, we have nowhere to go,” Vipin Narang, a MIT nuclear expert, told Vox. “There’s no zone of agreement if we insist on everything — I mean everything, complete surrender — up front.”

In January we went on our first date into Salt Lake and we toured the Utah State Capital.
Bennett loved being able to talk loudly in the dome and hear his echo and I hated the high ceilings and balcony but we survived and had a great time. We can now check that off our Utah to-do list!
 Afterwards we went to City Creek and we decided to eat at Johnny Rockets and then shopped and watched the fountains.
Overall it was a great date night and we can't wait for February's date!

          North Korea Could Be Preparing New Missile Launch Just Weeks After Failed Trump Summit, Satellite Images Show      Cache   Translate Page      

Kim Jong-un with North Korean military leaders.

North Korea appears to be planning the new launch of a missile or satellite just weeks after a summit with Donald Trump about denuclearization came to an abrupt end with no deal in sight.

As the BBC reported, satellite images of a facility near the North Korean capital of Pyongyang shows activity that suggest preparations for a launch from a site known as Sanumdong. This report comes just days after another suggested that North Korea had rebuilt another main rocket launch site at Sohae.

Donald Trump had been pushing for North Korea to dismantle its nuclear weapons operation and cease all weapons testing, at times bragging that North Korea had done both of these things. But on Friday, Trump struck a more uncertain tone as he expressed hope that North Korea would not go back to weapons testing.

          Launch HN: Axdraft (YC W19) - Legal documents for startups in minutes      Cache   Translate Page      

Hi HN! We are Yuriy and Oleg, founders of Axdraft (https://business.axdraft.com/en/business). Axdraft offers free legal documents for startups.

We have built Axdraft, because we believe that sometimes founders don’t need 20-page ironclad contract, 2 weeks of negotiations and detailed explanation of all risks. On early stages you just want to have a good, balanced agreement fast to move the deal forward while it's hot. The biggest difficulty here is that lawyers push us to perceive contracts as unique and, therefore, not possible to automate. Usually, by saying unique, they mean that there are 20-50 possible variations of a clause in the contract.

We are a team of brothers, who combine legal and tech expertise, Yuriy was a lawyer for almost 8 years at one of top law firms in Europe and when he started noticing that even the most complex legal transactions have many patterns, he reached out to his brother Oleg, who at that time was Senior Software Engineer at Booking.com in Amsterdam.

We teamed up to try to figure out and automate most common variations and allow any young startup, as ourselves to draft a document, which they need now. We spoke to about 100 founders and came up with a list of top-6 contracts startups use, including: (1) NDA; (2) Pilot agreement; (3) Services agreement; (4) SaaS agreement; (5) SAFE; and (6) Employee onboarding. We are already working on Terms of Service, Privacy Policy, Founders Agreement and LoI, which are top-4 documents requested by users. We will be more than happy to add other documents upon your request.

Our main differences compared to Clerky, LegalZoom, RocketLawyer and similar solutions are:

1. we focus on startups, which makes the content more tailored; 2. we offer documents for free, because I see little value in the legal document itself. The main value of a lawyer, in our view, is in counseling, sharing the liability and providing you assurances; 3. we offer plain English description of the implications for each choice you are offered when drafting a document; 4. to use Axdraft you don’t have to register, because we want to create flawless and super-fast experience for founders to create legal documents; 5. we are happy to customize documents of registered users with their logos, company details and some custom language upon request.

We intend to monetize Axdraft by giving an option for startups to submit any document drafted with Axdraft or a document they received from third party for approval or review by a lawyer for a small fixed fee, which would still be much more affordable than engaging a law firm.

Currently, we offer founder to founder review, which is not a legal review at all, but more a business advice from a fellow founder, who is eager to share his experience with similar contracts.

We estimate the market for this product to be less than 1 bln USD at the moment, but we expect it to grow as the number of startups founded each year increases and as we expand into a larger 7 bln USD market of small businesses (under 20 employees) in the US.

We are really excited to hear your feedback about Axdraft. Please try it out at https://business.axdraft.com (registration is not required) and let us know what you think.

After a rocket-fuelled start, I had settled into a steady and sustainable trajectory and was on course to achieve my goal with months to spare.

So what happened? A good question and one that I probably cannot find an entirely satisfying answer for. Exams and then a change of routine over the summer probably played a large part in my collapse and maybe overconfidence and a perceived lack of challenge in the target were also my undoing. Also, other challenges and targets I have taken on may have conflicted with it to a certain extent, for example the goal of getting my body fat percentage below 10% before winter (failed).

The last update was over 3 months ago. In that time, I won't claim not to have eaten biscuits - I know that to be untrue, but I've certainly had a fair degree fewer biscuits and when I have indulged in them there's been a tendency toward repetition of varieties. I have tried some new varieties in this time and have scraped together scanty records of three of these, with any remaining ones drifting into the nebulous abyss of time.

So, I shall endeavour to write up the details I have for those three varieties today, leaving me with 15 new varieties required in the remaining two and a half months of the year. On the face of it that shouldn't be too challenging, but it remains to be seen how easy it is to leap back up upon the baked goods wagon and rifle through the offerings for some inspiring and lesser seen biscuit delights.

          Fantasy Basketball: Kemba Cracked Open a Bottle of Olde English      Cache   Translate Page      
When I used to drink back in high school, it'd be a lot of 40 ounces of Olde English 800. Too many 40's of OE. Way too many 40's of OE. I was/am a stupid, stupid man. But they were so cheap and it was nice to just have to carry around one bottle. I had repressed all those memories until I saw Kemba's line last night:
PTS REB AST STL BLK TOV 3PT FG FT
40 10 7 0 1 4 6/6 14/20 6/7
In 40 minutes! And that was without Cody Zeller (knee), who helps Kemba post positive numbers when he's on the court. Anyways, the matchup last night against the Rockets was a great one, as Houston is the 6th-worst at defending the pick-and-roll, a play that Kemba is a master at running. With that said, he has been hot recently regardless, as he's been a top 25 player over the past seven games. The usage rate is above 30 and he's been jacking up 20 shots per game. Kemba does contribute across the board, even chipping in 0.4 blocks. Yo, Blake Griffin. You seeing this? It all comes down to the shooting efficiency for Kemba. During his current heater, he's converting 46% of his shots from the field. There were stretches during the season when he was sub-40%. Hopefully he continues his hot streak for the duration of the fantasy playoffs and entices you to seek out a bottle of Olde English. Here's what else I saw last night:

          One company bought all the retail outlets for glasses, used that to force sales of all the eyewear companies and jacked up prices by as much as 1000%      Cache   Translate Page      

If you wear glasses, you might have noticed that they've been getting steadily more expensive in recent years, no matter which brand you buy and no matter where you shop.

That's because a giant-but-obscure company called Luxottica bought out Sunglass Hut and Lenscrafters, then used their dominance over the retail side of glasses to force virtually every eyewear brand to sell to them (Luxxotica owns or licenses Armani, Brooks Brothers, Burberry, Chanel, Coach, DKNY, Dolce & Gabbana, Michael Kors, Oakley, Oliver Peoples, Persol, Polo Ralph Lauren, Ray-Ban, Tiffany, Valentino, Vogue and Versace); and used that to buy out all the other eyewear retailers of any note (Luxottica owns Pearle Vision, Sears Optical, Sunglass Hut and Target Optical) and then also bought out insurers like Eyemed Vision Care and Essilor, the leading prescription lens/contact lens manufacturer.

Controlling the labs, insurers, frame makers, and all the major retail outlets has allowed Luxottica to squeeze suppliers -- frames are cheaper than ever to make, thanks to monopsony buying power with Prada-grade designer frames costing $15 to manufacture -- while raising prices as much as 1000% relative to pre-acquisition pricing.

It's even worse for lenses: a pair of prescription lenses that cost $1.50 to make sell for $800 in the USA.

LA Times columnist David Lazarus wrote a column about skyrocketing eyewear prices and was approached by Charles Dahan, who once owned one of the largest frames companies in America, Custom Optical, which supplied 20% of the frames sold at Lenscrafters prior to the Luxottica acquisition.

House goes home a winner. Surprised, I really thought they'd wait until the very end of the season. A 2wc doesn't count at all toward the luxury tax (even for the days the guys in the NBA) but after the conversion the balance of the season contract does count. Granted, the Rockets tax situation is completely different now. I imagine 256K isn't enough to put them over the tax line, and there's nobody else they want to add.

Антонина Яковлевна Моисеенко
доярка колхоза «Новый мир» Яшалтинского района Калмыцкой АССР. Родилась в селе Бараники Сальского района Ростовской области в крестьянской семье. Отец Антонины погиб во Время Великой Отечественной войны. В 1948 году после смерти матери стала полной сиротой. В 1955 году оставила обучение в школе и пошла на работу на ферму, где работала телятницей. В 1956 году вышла замуж и вместе с мужем переехала в село Степное Степновского района Ростовской области (с 1956 года – село Яшалта Яшалтинского района Калмыцкой АССР, ныне – Республика Калмыкия). С 1961 года трудилась разнорабочей, а с 1970 года – дояркой молочно-товарной фермы № 4 колхоза «Новый мир» района Яшалтинского района Калмыцкой АССР. Указами Президиума Верховного Совета СССР от 14 февраля 1975 года и от 23 декабря 1976 года награждена орденом Трудовой Славы 3-й и 2-й степеней.

Нил Седака (Neil Sedaka)
американский пианист, вокалист и автор песен, который получил известность как кумир тинейджеров рубежа 1950-х и 1960-х. В 1962 году Седака впервые возглавил Billboard Hot 100 («Breaking Up is Hard to Do»); тринадцать лет спустя он вернулся на вершину поп-чартов — с «Bad Blood» и «Laughter in the Rain» . Десять альбомов певца входили в Billboard 2002. Нил родился в Бруклине в семье турецкого эмигранта сефардского происхождения; мать Элинор (Аппель) имела русско-польские корни. Он вырос в бруклинском районе Брайтон-Бич, где посещал школу Авраама Линкольна. Уже с 13 лет Нил писал песни вместе со своим товарищем Говардом Гринфилдом. Отчаявшись добиться успеха с оригинальными работами, он провёл несколько дней, прослушивая наиболее популярные радиохиты 1958 года. По собственным воспоминаниям, таким образом ему удалось вывести секреты написания стопроцентного шлягера, которые он применил к своей новой работе «Oh, Carol», посвящённой его школьной подружке Кэрол Кинг. В 1959 году эта песня стала общенациональным хитом, а мальчишеский голос Седаки стал непременным атрибутом музыкальных радиостанций того времени. В феврале 1961 года Седака выпустил рок-н-ролльный хит «Calendar Girl» (4-е место в США) и написал музыку для молодёжного фильма «Солнце, море и парни» с участием Конни Фрэнсис. Он становится одним из самых востребованных композиторов поп-музыки для подростков. Многие его хиты были написаны и записаны не выходя из здания «Brill Building», которое считалось неформальной штаб-квартирой нью-йоркской музыкальной индустрии. Наиболее удачным примером такого рода была зажигательная композиция «Breaking Up Is Hard to Do» (1-е место в США, 1962). Существуют десятки версий этой песни, из которых наиболее известна меланхолическая переработка, сделанная самим Седакой в середине 1970-х. «Британское вторжение» 1964 года на время положило конец популярности Седаки в США. Во второй половине 1960-х он пишет песни для американских (Шер) и британских (Том Джонс) эстрадных исполнителей, причём именно британская публика наиболее тепло принимала его новые работы (напр., «Ring Ring» группы ABBA). Седака разрывает отношения с безнадёжно отставшим от моды Гринфилдом и вместе с новым соавтором, Филом Коди, сочиняет более «взрослые» песни — такие, как «Laughter in the Rain» и «Solitaire» (известна в исполнении «The Carpenters», Энди Уильямса и Элвиса Пресли).
Neil Sedaka (700x700, 502Kb)
С целью покорения американских слушаталей ветеран поп-музыки подписал в 1975 г. контракт с лейблом Rocket Records, принадлежавшим Элтону Джону. Вслед за триумфом «Laughter in the Rain» их совместная с Элтоном работа «Bad Blood» добралась до первой строчки в «Billboard Hot 100». Несмотря на шумный успех этих шлягеров, два года спустя Седака перешёл на лейбл Elektra Records, где продюсированием его записей занялся сам Джордж Мартин. К этому времени интерес к сольным работам Седаки пошёл на убыль, однако написанные им для других исполнителей песни продолжали пользоваться спросом. Так, «Love Will Keep Us Together» в исполнении семейного дуэта «Captain & Tennille» стала абсолютным бестселлером 1975 г. в США, а «Is This the Way to Amarillo» Тони Кристи признан самым кассовым синглом Великобритании по итогам 2005 года. В последние годы Нил Седака выступил также с исполнением песен на идише (в том числе альбом Brighton Beach Memories — Воспоминания о Брайтон-Бич, 2003).

Владимир Владимирович Личутин
русский советский прозаик. Родился в городе Мезень Архангельской области. Выходец из древнего поморского рода, именем его представителя назван остров Михаила Личутина. Рос в многодетной семье, без отца (погиб на фронте). Окончил лесотехнический техникум (1960), факультет журналистики Ленинградского университета (1962), Высшие литературные курсы при Союзе писателей СССР (1975). Публиковал очерки в газетах и журналах Архангельска, легшие в основу его повестей Белая горница (1972), Иона и Александра, (1973), Долгий отдых, Вдова Нюра (обе 1974), Душа горит, Бабушки и дядюшки (обе 1976), Золотое дно, Крылатая Серафима (обе 1978), Последний колдун (1979) и др., образующих своеобразный эпический цикл, хронику исторического бытия и современной повседневной жизни поморской деревни, насыщенную этнографическими реалиями, колоритными типами, острыми и узнаваемыми ситуациями, диктуемых «родовой памятью», любовью и уважением к северорусскому крестьянству с его «привычками, обычаями, обрядами, поклонением земле и труду и размеренной совестной жизнью» (книга-эссе Душа неизъяснимая: Размышления о русском народе, 1989). В своем натуралистически-жизнеподобном бытописательстве, проявляющемся и в сочном, «необработанном», изобилующем диалектизмами («кушная зимовейка») языке повествования, идущем в русле «деревенской» прозы (Ф.Абрамов, В.Белов и др.), Личутин стремится, однако, к масштабным обобщениям, к созданию целостной, динамичной и полемически осмысляемой картины жизни поморского Севера в контексте истории России. Особенно отчетливо это проявилось в повести Домашний философ и хозяйка (1981) и романах Фармазон (1981), Скитальцы (1983, части 1–2; 1-я под названием Долгий отдых, 1974), Любостай (1987), отличительной чертой которых, как и всего творчества Личутина, является пристрастие к нестандартным, ярким и мощным характерам, «закрученному» сюжету, акцентированию «неизъяснимости», «загадочности» русской души – с одной стороны, «долготерпив русский человек», с другой – неудержим и стоек в противостоянии духовному и физическому насилию. Последнее выявляется, в частности, в истории русского старообрядчества, которому Личутин посвятил эпопею Раскол: Книга 1. Венчание на царство, 1990; Книга 2. Крестный путь, 1993; Книга 3. Вознесение, 1996.

американский певец, композитор. Работавший в Норвегии джазовый музыкант неожиданно стал популярен на весь мир, записав в 1994 году одну непритязательную песенку. Далеко не юный, с внешностью отнюдь не голливудского героя, он опроверг все устоявшиеся каноны рождения новых звезд. Даже свой недостаток - заикание - он в своем творчестве превратил в главное достоинство и никогда не забывал, что главное дело его жизни - помощь страдающим от этого дефекта речи людям. Ныне покойный.

Игорь Эмильевич Кио (настоящая фамилия - Гиршфельд-Ренард)
артист цирка, иллюзионист, народный артист России (2003). Отец — Ренард-Кио (Гиршфельд) Эмиль Теодорович (1894 года рождения). Мать — Гиршфельд Евгения Васильевна (1920 года рождения). Впервые вышел на арену ещё ребёнком в аттракционе отца, а самостоятельный профессиональный дебют состоялся уже в 15 лет в 1959 году на арене Московского цирка. В творческом багаже Игоря Кио немало режиссёрских работ не только в цирке. Кио — единственный иллюзионист в мире, удостоенный международной премии «Оскар», которая вручается по решению Общества журналистов и критиков Бельгии Королевским цирком Брюсселя. В 1999 году Игорь Кио был избран почётным академиком Национальной академии циркового искусства России. В 2003 году ему было присвоено звание народного артиста Российской Федерации. Приглашался в жюри Высшей лиги КВН. Со своей первой супругой, Галиной Брежневой, Игорь Кио состоял в браке лишь десять дней, после чего их развели по указанию власть имущих. Со второй супругой Игорь Кио прожил 11 лет. Иоланта Ольховикова, как и Кио, была из потомственной цирковой семьи, выступала в собственном номере с попугаями. От этого брака родилась дочь Виктория, которая некоторое время работала в цирке с дрессурой, но потом вышла замуж за балетмейстера и стала солисткой балета. Третья супруга Игоря Кио — Виктория Ивановна Кио. С ней они прожили более 20 лет. Она также принимала участие в шоу и являлась его ассистенткой. Дебют Игоря Кио, как самостоятельного артиста случился в 15 лет, когда он вышел на арену подменить заболевшего отца. Впоследствии до самой смерти отца он выступал вместе с ним в качестве ассистента. Многие иллюзионные номера, созданные отцом, и ставшие общепризнанными шедеврами мирового искусства, вошли и в репертуар Игоря Эмильевича. В 1977 году в Ленинграде состоялась премьера программы «Избранное-77», в которую входили номера из классического репертуара прошлых лет и новые программы И.Кио. А уже через несколько лет появился иллюзионный аттракцион «Раз-два-три», который был создан Игорем Кио совместно с О.Левицким. В 1985 году И.Кио была поставлена программа в Театре эстрады (авторы О.Левицкий и Б.Пургалин) под названием «Без иллюзий», в которой принимали участие эстрадные артисты. В 1989 году Игорь Кио ушёл из Союзгосцирка и создал фирму «Шоу — иллюзион Игоря Кио», которая занимается не только организацией собственных гастролей, но и выступлений других коллективов. В начале 1990-х годов в Кремлевском Дворце съездов была представлена программа «В шесть часов вечера после зимы», в которой участвовало много артистов эстрады. А в 1995 году на сцене Театра эстрады шла программа «Волшебник XX века», поставленная Игорем Кио совместно с Аркадием Аркановым. Днем проходили представления для детей, а вечером — шоу с участием Яна Арлазорова, групп «Экс-ББ» и «Лицедеи». Игорь Кио побывал с гастролями в Японии (1965), США (1967—1968 гг., совместно с Ю.Никулиным), Бельгии, Франции (1969—1970), а также в Турции, Югославии, Германии и многих других странах. Умер в Москве 30 августа 2006 года.

Автор более 250 научных публикаций по математике, в том числе 23 монографий, 8 учебников и учебных пособий. Его математические книги переведены на многие иностранные языки (английский, японский, французский, испанский, итальянский, сербский). Индекс цитируемости Хирша — 9 (на 2010 г.). У специалистов есть серьёзные претензии к содержательной части некоторых базовых математических работ А.Т.Фоменко. В рецензии Ф.Альмгрена, считающейся разгромной, указывается на ряд грубых ошибок и несоответствие декларируемых достижений реальным полученным результатам. Фоменко — автор и соавтор ряда работ, изданных в рамках проекта «Новая хронология», в которых претендует на создание новых «эмпирико-статистических» методов исследования исторических текстов, распознавания зависимых исторических текстов и датирования событий в приложении к хронологии античной и средневековой истории. Вместе с другими участниками проекта критикует существующую хронологию мировой истории, негативно оценивает добросовестность работы многих учёных, которые занимались историей, археологией, лингвистикой, астрономией, методами датирования и др. Основным соавтором Фоменко является коллега по кафедре Глеб Носовский. Группа «Новая хронология» издала несколько десятков книг на русском языке и несколько — на английском и других европейских языках, где идёт речь о разработанных Фоменко методах исследования, дубликатах, которыми наполнена, по мнению Фоменко, общепринятая история и о возможных реконструкциях «правильной» истории. Данная теория не признаётся научным сообществом — историками, археологами, лингвистами, математиками, физиками, астрономами и представителями других наук. «Новая хронология» подверглась критике со стороны ряда учёных, в частности, академика Российской Академии Наук археолога Валентина Янина, академика Российской Академии Наук лингвиста Андрея Зализняка, члена Бюро Научного Совета Российской Академии Наук по астрономии Юрия Ефремова. Мы живём в эпоху тотального непрофессионализма, разъедающего все сферы общества — от его властных структур до организации системы образования. <…> Общество, воспитанное на скандалах, припавшее к экрану телевизора, жаждет негатива и эпатажа. Оно любит фокусы Дэвида Коперфильда и Анатолия Тимофеевича Фоменко.— Валентин Янин «Зияющие высоты академика Фоменко» // Вестник Российской академии наук, 2000, том 70, № 5. Признаюсь, я сам не могу до конца отделаться от мысли, что для А.Т.Фоменко его сочинения на гуманитарные темы — это забавный, хотя и изрядно затянутый, фарс, мефистофелевская насмешка математика над простофилями гуманитариями, наука которых так беспомощна, что они не в состоянии отличить пародию от научной теории. Если это так, то главные кролики этого изысканного эксперимента — его (А.Т.Ф.) последователи — Андрей Зализняк «Лингвистика по А.Т.Фоменко». Теория Фоменко была осуждена на страницах бюллетеня «В защиту науки», издаваемого Комиссией по борьбе с лженаукой при Президиуме Российской Академии Наук. Академик Российской Академии Наук, Нобелевский лауреат по физике Виталий Гинзбург, академики Эдуард Кругляков, Александр Андреев, Николай Платэ, Александр Фурсенко, Евгений Александров, Сергей Новиков квалифицировали «Новую хронологию» как лженауку. Среди известных общественных деятелей в поддержку «Новой хронологии» выступали Эдуард Лимонов, Александр Зиновьев, Гарри Каспаров. Каспаров впоследствии пересмотрел свою позицию, дав положительную оценку критическому подходу Фоменко к устоявшимся зачастую парадоксальным взглядам историков, хотя и не согласился безоговорочно с выводами его исследований. В 2004 году за серию книг по «Новой хронологии» соавторам А.Фоменко и Г.Носовскому была присуждена Антипремия «Абзац» в номинации «Почётная безграмота» — за «особо циничные преступления против российской словесности».

Zulu 3-6, <blockquote>True, the Internet and GPS are completely separate systems, but the government could always change the encryption on the GPS so civilian receivers would be useless. Sort of a MILNET for GPS, if you will.</blockquote> There is no encryption per. se.; but, the current system does have what is called <strong>SA<strong> or <strong>”Selective Availability”</strong> that was turned off by President Clinton, since DGPS made it all but useless. SA will add or subtract pseudo random values to the ephemeris data, making the position calculations of the earth stations off, by meters to miles, with the military stations knowing the correct position offsets; however, with the advent of cellular networks, DGPS (Differential GPS) was created, initially by the surveying industry. How it works is a GPS receiver is placed at a fixed known position, and when it calculates the position from the GPS satellite data, if it doesn’t match the known position, the difference (differential) is calculated and sent via the cellular network to the surveyors in the field, whose equipment makes the proper corrections. It’s basically making the original SA obsolete. It’s kind of a real world Spy vs. Spy vs. Spy kind of thing. LOL. <blockquote>Not that I think it is a realistic near term possibility, but if we get into a serious shooting match with some other country, it could easily happen as the military GPS is different from the civilian GPS. Many other countries rely on the civilian GPS as they do not have access to the military encryption.</blockquote> Only the signals are different since all use the same satellite constellation, with different data streams used for decoding. <blockquote>Some countries (China comes to mind) are building their own GPS network.</blockquote> The US has begun launching its new upgrade, more accurate GPS III" satellites starting back on December 23rd. The spacecraft, is called "Vespucci," and was deployed into medium Earth orbit about 2 hours after liftoff by a Space-X Falcon rocket. Actually Russia already has asatellite system called GLONASS and you can purchase receivers for it or for both the US & Russian systems. China’s system is called BeiDou; but, I don’t know much about it. The EU has its Galileo program to launch another constellation of navigation satellites and I understand that the UK is also working on its own Sat Nav system. There is already so much space junk in orbit, I don’t see how NORAD keeps track; but, supposedly they do. <blockquote>In any event, the US military scaled back their manual land navigation training for a number of years, but now they are bring it back. Special Ops always kept up their manual landnav, but regular forces only worked the basics. I always used manual landnav as GPS was only just coming into semi-common use when I retired from the military.</blockquote> Land navigation is a good skill to have; but, unfortunately I don’t think too many civilians have a clue either. Prior to GPS I traveled all over this country with books of maps like the Road Atlas and the state Gazetteer, e.g. “Ohio Gazetteer” While we use a GPS in the vehicle, it’s a GPS device (Tom Tom), that contains the maps of all of north America in its memory, with lifetime updates every so often. Some use their smart phones with apps like Waze that don’t contain all of the needed maps, and downloads them in pieces when needed, assuming you are in a coverage area, meaning that no bars or no internet yields no maps. We still keep appropriate maps in the vehicles as a backup. Your take on the Venezuela power problem is spot on, and like the collective farms of the USSR, being run by party apparatchiks with no farming experience causing widespread starvation, I don’t see much of a future for Venezuela and hopefully its current regime. Even bringing those farmers back to the scorched fields of the USSR didn’t magically make food appear.

          'Our value proposition goes beyond the Amazons and Nikes of the world': Snap is going on the charm offensive with a splashy presence at SXSW      Cache   Translate Page      

snapchat spectacles glasses

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

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

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

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

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

A marked difference in Snap's approach

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

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

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

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

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

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

'We're driving meaningful, measured ROI'

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Via Teleconference
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: San Antonio’s First News with Charlie Parker, Charity McCurdy in the 24-hour news center. Secretary of State Mike Pompeo in Houston, Texas today for the CERAWeek conference all about energy, in particular America.

Mr. Secretary, appreciate the visit this morning, but before we talk about what’s going on here in Texas, in particular Houston today, have to ask you about last night and what’s currently going on in Venezuela. Back in January, the decision to withdraw all dependence and reduce embassy staff to a minimum, and then your announcement last night that it’s time for everybody to get out.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Charlie, thanks for having me on the show. It’s great to be in Texas. We did in fact make the decision last night that we needed to remove the remaining folks we had on the ground there in Caracas. The situation is continuing to deteriorate. We’ve all seen the power outages – food, water all becoming more and more difficult – and we wanted to make sure we kept all the Americans working for the United States Government safe and get them back home.

QUESTION: Yeah, and the international effort to get Maduro out – well, I say international, not counting China, Russia, and Cuba – if things are to this point, if things are this bad and probably looking like they could get worse, what are the options? What do we do in Venezuela?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, the Venezuelan people have set the direction very clearly. They want Maduro gone. The Interim President Juan Guaido is leading an effort to get humanitarian assistance and the American taxpayers have been incredibly generous. Over 200 metric tons of food and hygiene kits and medicine on the ground, we haven’t been able to get them in. The Maduro regime has denied food to starving people and medicine to the sick. It’s really, really evil. And we need to continue to work to deliver. The Venezuelan people deserve it. This is a once-proud, resource-rich nation, and I’m confident. One of the reasons I’m here in Texas is to talk about energy, and Venezuela has it. We need to return the capacity of Venezuela to produce and create wealth for the Venezuelan people, and we’re working diligently with all of our partners in South and Central America and Europe to hopefully achieve that here as quickly as possible. The time is drawing short.

QUESTION: Secretary Pompeo, good morning. This is Charity McCurdy. As you mentioned, you’re in Houston to talk about America’s energy revolution, and the U.S. is on pace to overtake Saudi Arabia and Russia as the world’s biggest oil producer. As you know, Texas’s Permian Basin is a major player in that. What’s being done by the Trump administration to address pipeline capacity to ensure this production growth continues?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Well, Charity, great question, and incredibly important. First, I think the administration’s done an awful lot to get us where we are today, to reduce regulation, to make permitting faster. I was in this business for a bunch of years before I entered government service. I ran a company that made pumping units. I’ve spent a lot of time in Midland, Odessa, East Texas. I know the industry well. We now need to take all this product that we’ve got in the Permian Basin, and frankly in other places in America too, and make sure that we can get it to markets not only through pipelines here, but my task as America’s most senior diplomat is to make sure that there are markets available around the world, that the Europeans and Asia – they’re prepared to buy not only our crude oil, but our natural gas so that we can continue to create wealth here in America. And importantly, it has deep national security implications as well if we’re successful at this.

QUESTION: We’re talking to the Secretary of State, Mike Pompeo. Obviously when it comes to energy, you got to be strong, you got to grow, you got to integrate, diversify, and advance energy security. Just exactly what does that mean, Mr. Secretary, to advance energy security?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Everywhere I travel – I was in the Philippines last week and in Vietnam, I’ll be in the Middle East next week, then I’ll be back on to Europe – no matter which country I go to, they’re very focused on their own energy security. What does that mean? It means they have the capacity to deliver the energy that their citizens need to heat and cool their homes, that they have what they need for their infrastructure, for their businesses. And they want to get it from friends and allies and partners, and they don’t want to have to rely on adversaries who, when times get tough, can cut them off or raise prices or make their life difficult or, frankly, use energy to coerce them.

And so this American boom, this skyrocketing of energy production – you talked about us being number one in the world in crude oil exports. We’re going to approach that and natural gas before too long. Our ability to deliver that to our friends and partners around the world creates enormous security for people here in Texas and all across America.

QUESTION: We appreciate what you do and I guess on a light note, I’d like – I wish you got frequent flyer miles.

SECRETARY POMPEO: (Laughter.) Doesn’t quite work that way, but it is an incredible privilege to represent America around the world.

QUESTION: And we are glad that you do, Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you very much. You all have a good day.

          That Time the US Military Made an Atomic Cannon      Cache   Translate Page      

In 1945, we delivered nuclear bombs by plane. Today, a nuclear arsenal contains ICBMs to deliver nuclear destruction by rocket. In between, one idea for nuclear firepower was to shoot it from a cannon. Engineer Robert M. Schwartz designed the ammunition in 1949, huge 280mm shells with a nuclear tip. Then he had to design a cannon capable of firing them.The result was the M65.  

...to say the M65 was cumbersome is a massive understatement. Weighing around 83 tons tons, it was rather difficult to move, requiring two trucks packing 375 horsepower engines, one truck on each end of the cannon, with the drivers needing to be in constant communication as they drove. The top speed on this setup was a breakneck 35 mph, if the road was straight and reasonably flat.

Its mobility was also limited by the length of the vehicle- about 80 feet- with one soldier, Jim Michalko, recalling that after getting the cannon stuck in a narrow street during transport in Germany, they ended up having to destroy several buildings in order to make necessary turns.

Despite these issues, a well-trained crew of around 5 people could have the cannon ready to fire in around 15 minutes, with the weapon capable of hitting any target within roughly 20 miles with pinpoint accuracy. It likewise only took around 15 minutes to get the cannon back on the road, ready to nuke another target.

The M65 was only fired once, but the resulting film was enough of deterrent to last until better weapons were developed. Read about the M65 at Today I Found Out.

Coober Pedy – Port Augusta

According to our guide book when you arrive in Coober Pedy “you might think you’ve arrived in a post-apocalyptic shithole.” A little harsh perhaps but there is no doubt it is a unique setting packed full of interesting people with only one thing on their mind: Opal.||

With 80% of its residents living in underground dugout homes to escape the heat, and mining equipment littering its dusty streets, Coober Pedy certainly felt a little surreal. Opal fever has seen fortune seekers come from 44 different countries for the past 100 years so it actually feels quite cosmopolitan.

It all started in 1915 when 14 year old Willie Hutchison disobeyed the strict orders of his father, James Hutchison, the leader of a gold prospecting expedition. The party had run out of water amidst the worst draught South Australia had ever experienced. While the adults went in search of a water source, young Willie had been left in charge of tending the campfire. His father quickly forgave him his disobedience when, on his return, Willie had found not only a bag full of loose opals, but also a water hole in the vicinity.

Thanks to Willie, miners have been flooding to Coober Pedy ever since, staking their claims, digging and blasting shafts in the sandstone hoping to uncover their fortune. So how much does the average miner make? A local summed it up nicely:

“Well, take my mate, he found $50,000 worth of opal in a single day. The next 2 years he spent his days toiling away underground for the total sum of $100.”

Coober Pedy   Tunneling machine

As the town is located in an unforgiving environment, much effort is required to provide power and water for its inhabitant as well as for visiting tourists. The town water comes from an artesian bore and has to be desalinated and filtered to make it drinkable. A diesel generator provides power for the town, making electricity quite expensive.

There is plenty to explore and we really enjoyed the Old Timers mine, a mine that was rediscovered when a dugout home was being built. It was subsequently turned into a tourist attraction and during the process they found over $100,000 worth of opal that the original miners had missed by just a few feet.

Space ship   TVs

The town is littered with unusual artefacts, walking around your never really know what you might stumble across, hopefully not a shaft! Outside a hotel we came across a spaceship that seemed to have crashlanded just meters from the entrance. It turned out to be an old movie prop from the film Pitch Black. At the entrance of a mine we found old TV sets carefully placed as if they were regularly used.

During the three days we spent in Coober Pedy it did not stop raining, converting the usually sunparched and dusty streets into a muddy sludge.

No explosives in theatre   Miners car

Leaving Coober Pedy was a little daunting as we had the longest stretch of “nothingness” on our entire trip to cover: 260km without a single human dwelling. Luckily we had found out from fellow campers that there were two water tanks on this stretch, reducing our need to carry large amounts of water.

Trees do not grow naturally in the Coober Pedy area, and the landscape was quite devoid of features. When looking closely however, we still found stunning wild flowers covering the land, grateful for the recent rains.

Pretty flower   Sturt Desert Pea

We were now cyling trough the Woomera Military Exclusion Zone, which meant no deviating off the road was allowed. With the prohibited area being nearly the size of England, it took us several days to cross it.

Arriving at the first water tank one of our worst fears came true; it was empty. Luckily there was a small tank for hand washing near the toilets so over the course of half an hour we managed to drain out just enough to get by. The water tanks in South Australia are fed by rainwater running off the roofs of picnic areas, making the water supply less reliable and more likely to be contaminated than the tanks in the Northern Territory. As a result we have started filtering our water again.

On our second night out of Coober Pedy, as we wheeled the bikes into the bush for another wild camp we realised we had just walked through a field of thorns. On closer inspection we discovered dozens of spiky thorns embedded into our tyres. We spent over an hour taking the little pricks out of our tyres and much of the next morning carrying our kit to the road and doing further checks.

Thorns in tyres   A naughty thorn

The continuous effort of cycling into the wind was taking its toll, and Guy suffered from bad knee pain, reducing his speed to a crawl. We barely managed 70km a day now as we were cycling so slowly, and even painkillers did not relieve his discomfort.

At camp, we had seen some emu footprints. We hadn’t seen any wild emus yet and were just contemplating the fact that emus were extremely shy animals when we spotted a group of three adults with about a dozen baby emus in a field near Glendambo, the first roadhouse after Coober Pedy. The emu is the second-largest bird in the world after the ostrich, and over the coming days we saw quite a few of them. Despite their size, they usually took flight as soon as they spotted us. 

Emu footprints   Emu

After three days of pure outback, we felt like we had arrived back in civilisation when we pulled into Glendambo roadhouse. It was quite exciting to see a human dwelling again, even though it was just a humble fuel station and motel.

When we left Glendambo in the morning, we could see a road train in our rear view mirrors. Oddly, it was flashing its lights and pulling over just behind us. We soon realised it was our buddy, Craig. We had met him a week earlier at a roadhouse. He was interested to know more about our ride and perhaps check on our mental health. We refused to accept his offer of donating his lunch to us (yum, lasagne!) but accepted some spring water which was a step up from our salty bore water.

Guy’s knee pain was no better and we were pretty relieved when we finally reached Lake Hart right on sunset. This is usually a dried out salt lake, but thanks to the recent rains it had water in it and was amazingly beautiful.

Guy with Craig   Camping at Lake Hart

The following morning we passed one of the biggest salt lakes in the state often used by speed enthusiasts intent on breaking their necks and/or land speed records. Much of central Australia used to be covered by a vast inland sea, which is much easier to imagine once you have seen these huge salt lakes.

Salt lake

Five days after leaving Coober Pedy, we arrived in the settlement of Woomera. This village had been established in 1947 to support the Woomera Rocket Range. After WW2, the British had been looking for a place to test new weapons, rockets and missiles. The Woomera region had been chosen and was used for decades by British, Australian and American forces to experiment with top secret military equipment. The visitors center has a great exhibit detailing the role of Woomera´s past and present but it was disappointing that there was no mention of the devastating nuclear tests that occured in the late 1950´s, contaminating the local aboriginal communities and inflicting great suffering on the servicemen working in the area completly unprotected.

The village of Woomera itself had been off-limits to the public until 1982. It is still used by the military and is an oddly artificial place with a campsite, a supermarket and a couple of museums. We took a day off here to let Guy’s knee recover.

Rocket park at Woomera   Rocket

The road south of Woomera was very busy with lots of road trains and school holiday traffic. The amount of roadkill on this stretch was the worst we have ever encountered: every hundred metres or so the stench of a dead kangaroo or a rotting cow filled the air and this made us think (rather morbidly) about our road kill list to date. We thought we might share it with you. Over the last 14 months we have seen dead horses, pigs, cows, camels, kangaroos, wallabies, snakes, sheep, foxes, mice, dingoes, dogs, frogs, cats, monitor lizards, hedge hogs, echidna and a dozen or so varieties of birds. Sometimes cycling is not for the faint-hearted!

On a more positive note, we were enjoying a lovely tailwind and beautiful sunshine and found another great camp spot on our last night in the Outback. There is something about camping out here that makes you feel really connected with nature. Sitting around a cosy fire under a million stars was a natural part of our ancestor’s life but is such a rare experience nowadays.

Port Augusta

Finally after 3,600km of riding we arrived at the sea (the top of the Spencer Gulf), officially marking the end of our time in the Outback. In only one week’s time we would be in Adelaide, staying with our friends Paul and Jenny, and boy were we looking forward to some creature comforts.

Mesoscale Discussion 0185
NWS Storm Prediction Center Norman OK
1019 PM CDT Tue Mar 12 2019

Areas affected...Southwest TX

Concerning...Tornado Watch 17...19...

Valid 130319Z - 130515Z

The severe weather threat for Tornado Watch 17, 19 continues.

SUMMARY...Damaging wind gusts and isolated tornadoes will remain
possible along a strong squall line moving across the region, and
with any isolated storms that may form ahead of the line.

DISCUSSION...A strong squall line continues to track eastward across
west TX, extending from west of Lubbock to east of Alpine, TX. 
Several smaller scale bowing segments are noted along the line, with
corridors of enhanced winds and possibly brief tornado spinups
expected for several more hours.  This has prompted the issuance of
new WW 19 until 10z.

A few isolated thunderstorms have formed ahead of the line over
Crockett county TX.  This is along the leading edge of the mid-level
jet and in region of weak but increasing CAPE.  VAD profiles at
MAF/SJT/DFX all show very strong low-level shear with 0-3km SRH
values exceeding 500 m2/s2.  Recent CAM solutions vary on whether
this activity can persist/intensify.  But if they can become
sustained, the environment suggests a threat of a tornado or two. 
Otherwise, damaging winds and hail will be possible with these
storms.

Remarks
Dr. Christopher Ashley Ford
Assistant Secretary, Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation
2019 Deterrence and Assurance Workshop and Conference
University of Nebraska at Omaha, NE
March 8, 2019


Good day, and thank you for inviting me.

This is a conference on deterrence, and I am glad to see so many bright people coming together in order to explore its challenges. Deterring large-scale aggression against the United States and its allies has always been the core function of our armed services, and this is no less true for our nuclear forces. But in this nuclear age, doing deterrence right presents special risks and challenges.

It is critical to ensure that a potential adversary sees no viable path to getting his way by force, certainly. At the same time, however, the potential costs of getting things wrong could be so catastrophically high that it is also very important to be continually aware of the sometimes-overlooked stability dynamics of nuclear posture choices.

But let me back up a bit, and offer some background about why I am myself so focused upon such questions. One of our areas of specialization in the Bureau of International Security and Nonproliferation at the State Department is regional security. This includes working with other countries not just to help them be better partners in preventing the further proliferation of weapons of mass destruction, but also to help them develop better — that is, safer and more stable — relationships with each other.

Such diplomatic efforts involve encouraging approaches to regional security that minimize incentives for proliferation, but — where past nonproliferation efforts have been unsuccessful and countries unfortunately have come to possess nuclear weapons — it can also involve working with partners to encourage wiser choices and practices in managing their nuclear status. Let me be clear, this is not to condone proliferation once it occurs; nor am I referring to stability-focused engagements with irresponsible states that have a track record of illegal nuclear weapons work that it is our objective to roll back, such as North Korea or Iran. I mean only to make the point that, in some cases, if proliferation does occur and cannot be reversed, we want states to exercise restraint and make choices regarding nuclear technology, doctrine, and posture that maximize regional — and global — security and stability. This is nuclear risk reduction in the highest sense.

This means, for instance, that while others in the Department handle diplomatic engagements related to America’s own nuclear forces and posture, we in ISN work to encourage other possessor states to make prudent, stabilizing choices in order to avoid catastrophic outcomes. So let’s take a brief trip together down the strategic posture theory rabbit hole.

I. Diplomatic Engagement for Crisis and Arms Race Stability

I should preface these comments, I suppose, by making clear that I make no claim that we are bearers and purveyors of infallible wisdom in these regards; deterrence and escalation theory remain, as they have always been, controversial and contested in many ways. It is also true that every deterrent relationship and every arms competition has its own idiosyncrasies, and that for this reason, it may not necessarily be the case that lessons learned in one arena make sense mutatis mutandis in nuclear weapons relationships that emerge in different contexts.

However, given what is at stake, i.e., the preservation of geopolitical stability and the prevention of nuclear war, we should not shrink from using diplomatic levers to encourage constructive learning wherever possible. One side effect of our long and anxious national history of living in a strategic nuclear dyad of our own — striving to deter aggression, prevent a breakdown in deterrence, extend deterrence to allies, defuse proliferation pressures, limit proliferation opportunities, and preserve crisis stability and unwanted escalation, all at the same time — is that these challenges contributed to the development of a rich ecosystem of strategic thinking about how to walk the deterrence tight rope entailed by trying to do all of these things at at the same time.

At least in the West, where we prized and preserved freedom of thought and expression, there developed over time competing schools of public discourse on strategic issues, a rich academic literature, a diverse infrastructure of competing faculties, think tanks, and academic programs, and a bestiary of inside-the-bureaucracy governmental elements devoted to managing a nuclear relationship without catastrophe. Conferences like this one today, and associative groups such as the Deterrence and Assurance Academic Alliance, make people like you the inheritors of this tradition. This does not mean we got all the answers right, but we certainly have a long history of examining the issues very carefully from multiple perspectives.

So there is surely room for useful engagement and reciprocal learning with our diplomatic partners as they struggle with modern stability challenges. To my eye, perhaps one of the most useful things we must all vigilantly pursue is how to minimize and manage the risk of unwanted escalation – recognizing, of course, that the capability to manipulate risk to achieve political objectives can be a major reason why states acquire nuclear weapons in the first place.

II. Thinking about Stability: Less “How Many?” Than “What? And How?”

In meeting this challenge of minimizing and managing the risk of unwanted escalation, it seems to me that raw numbers may sometimes matter much less than the types of systems each rival possesses and how they are postured against each other. With respect to any other countries’ arms competitions, therefore, there is clearly much room for thoughtful engagement on the complex crisis stability dynamics created by the interplay of possessors’ choices about equipment, posture, and doctrine.

To help such engagements be as productive as they can be and enable those partners to reduce nuclear risks as much as possible for so long as they feel compelled to remain in nuclear weapons relationships, we owe ourselves and our diplomatic partners as much clear thinking and thoughtful consideration as possible about whether, and the degree to which, particular weapons systems, force postures, and doctrinal choices are stabilizing or destabilizing.

So let me give a few examples of how one might think through such stability questions from the perspective of national choices about particular weapons systems. I do not offer these as any kind of Holy Writ, of course, nor with the claim that they are absolutely the only conclusions a reasonable person could reach, nor that these suggested conclusions would necessarily follow in all imaginable arms-competitive contexts. However, I do think these examples have value as illustrations of how one might develop a stability-focused discourse to inform choices between nuclear possessor states.

III. Illustrative Examples

A. Heavy, Many-Warhead, Fixed ICBMs

First, how might one think about the stability impact of traditional, fixed intercontinental ballistic missiles (ICBMs) carrying extremely large numbers of warheads? It became clear during the late Cold War that it was possible to develop very large missiles with as many as 10 or 12 separate warheads, each capable of hitting a different target. Over time, however, people began to have some second thoughts about such monsters, informed by game-theoretical thinking about nuclear crisis stability.

Let’s explore this. If Country X has a large number of warheads co-located in individual missiles, each of which is subject to being destroyed by only one or two of Country Y’s warheads, this could, in a crisis, create a dangerous incentive for a first strike. That unfavorable exchange ratio — several of X’s warheads lost in exchange for perhaps only one of Y’s warheads expended — means that Y has some reason to err on the side of pre-emptive attack, trying to destroy X’s heavy fixed ICBMs before he can use them. If this works, Y might not only have destroyed X’s land-based force rather efficiently, but might indeed also still have plenty of warheads left over for other targets.

At the same time, and for precisely analogous reasons, X himself might have a dangerous incentive in a crisis to launch his missiles first — perhaps even preemptively, or upon the slightest hint of attack warning — not just to go after Y’s own heavy missile silos (if it has them) and thus seize a similar “exchange-ratio bonus” for himself, but also simply because the unfavorable ratio of incoming warheads to target warheads makes it especially dangerous for X to risk “riding out” a possible incoming salvo. Hence traditional, Cold War-style heavy, many-warhead fixed ICBMs are now generally thought to be destabilizing: they seem to maximize incentives for pre-emption and automatic, unthinking launch on warning.

We ourselves used to have heavy, many-warhead silo-based systems, of course, but in U.S. strategic posture across the last few administrations we have moved away from such choices. Although the U.S. Nuclear Posture Review has made clear that a portion of our ICBM force could again be uploaded if there were a need to do so, but we have successfully transitioned our own ICBMs from multi-warhead to single-warhead systems and we have long since abandoned very large, mega-MIRV’d systems such as the Peacekeeper.

If one were to take this game-theoretical insight to heart, it would presumably follow that developing heavy, mega-MIRV’d silo-based ICBMs — such as Russia’s forthcoming Sarmat ICBM — would be a poor strategic choice almost tailor-made to promote crisis instability. Sound and thoughtful diplomacy with countries having their own nuclear arsenals should thus encourage better, more stability-focused approaches.

B. Forward-deployed Battlefield Weapons

As a second example, consider the challenges potentially presented by large numbers of and diversity in small, battlefield nuclear weapons. Such things were deployed in some numbers during much of the Cold War — including some notoriously small, portable systems such as the “Davy Crockett” battlefield rocket that could be mounted on a Jeep, a nuclear artillery shell for an 8-inch Army howitzer, and a man-portable atomic demolition mine. The stability impact of such very short-range (or zero-range!) systems — and the degree to which their use could be reliably controlled in a conflict — has long been questioned, and after careful consideration we ourselves moved emphatically away from them years ago. Many observers fear that such devices deployed close to the anticipated front line in a conflict between nuclear rivals — particularly if authorization for their use is devolved to battlefield commanders, since reliable, centralized command-and-control is usually thought to be essential to crisis management — might lead to inadvertent or dangerously precipitous escalation and early nuclear use.

These dangers arise because such easily-usable weapons deployed very far forward could be targeted preemptively or quickly overrun, the imminence of which might lead to precipitous use. In that case, the result could have strategic consequences (in the form of nuclear combat) triggered by strategically unimportant minor or inconclusive fluctuations in the contours of that front line. Some observers might speculate this could strengthen deterrence, on the theory that such amazing dangers might make an invasion less attractive to an aggressor in the first place.

However, even if such worrying brinksmanship did have value, there would still be huge dangers of losing control. To the degree that control of easily-portable devices were delegated far down the chain of command, this would greatly challenge crisis management and warfighting command and control by national-level authorities. Catastrophically consequential decisions being made under stress by ill-informed junior battlefield commanders who lack the big picture does not bode well for crisis stability.

Stability considerations thus make large numbers of and diversity in small, easily-portable battlefield devices such as nuclear artillery shells or demolition mines seem highly problematic. Such reasoning contributed to decisions by both of the nuclear superpowers to pull non-strategic weapons significantly back from the control of unit commands. This is a compelling logic that other nuclear possessors might also wish to consider.

I would also urge other possessing states to follow the U.S. model of highly centralized and rigorous command and control practices, which promote stability and predictability even in times of crisis — and to avoid either devolved, uncontrollable use controls or mindlessly automated release procedures such as the Dr. Strangelove-style “Perimeter” system for automatically initiating nuclear war. Methods of dispersion in a crisis should also be scrutinized, since such small, portable devices a susceptible to threats from guerrilla or terrorist groups within one’s borders. The implications of deployment modalities and command-and-control questions are not the sort of “sexy” nuclear weapons matters that get much attention from armchair strategists, but they are critical questions for the real professionals, and we should encourage countries with nuclear weapons to think these things through carefully.

C. Context Matters

Third, nuclear powers might also bear in mind that what makes sense in one nuclear context may not make sense in another. I have noted how the risks associated with large numbers of or diversity in small, forward-deployed weapons increase tremendously if they are deployed where guerrillas or terrorists might seize them in the field – which is, if you ask me, a pretty important context-specific factor – but difficulties can also arise with other systems.

If you are a nuclear power engaged in a nuclear weapons relationship with an adversary many thousands of miles away, there’s obviously some logic in acquiring delivery systems with intercontinental range. Participants in a regional dyad, however, should carefully consider limiting the range of their systems to avoid having too much range, which could end up drawing them into deeply problematic provocation dynamics with nuclear powers outside the core deterrence dyad. Such a dynamic would carry with it potentially catastrophic risks of inadvertent escalation, miscalculation, or unlooked-for intervention or pre-emption.

These various challenges are difficult and problematic enough when a relationship remains dyadic, so stumbling into escalatory problems with extra-regional players could be notably unwise, especially if those additional players are very powerful and one does not actually have any particular antecedent strategic-level problem with them in the first place. Nuclear possessors need to think through such dynamics, for it matters whether, and how, one’s own regional nuclear dynamics are connected to, or entangled with, broader ones.

D. Unlimited-range Cruise Missiles

Fourth, I would suggest that exotic new technologies and methods need careful attention as well — because what might initially seem to be an attractive “feature” of a new weapons system could turn out to be, from a stability perspective, very much a dangerous “bug.” As an example, take something as seemingly simple as a weapon system’s range. More range seems like it would always be better, right? Well, not always.

It is at least theoretically possible to develop a nuclear-powered cruise missile that could have an essentially unlimited range. In the late 1950s, for example, U.S. and Soviet researchers both worked on designs for a nuclear-powered airplane, the advantage of which was thought to be its ability to remain “continuously airborne.” The U.S. program was rather sensibly terminated in 1961, and the Soviet concept apparently never even got off the drawing board, but one could at least imagine a cruise missile loosely based upon such technology today. To say that such a thing might be possible, however, is not to say that it would be in any way wise.

For one thing, there might be alarming technical, safety, and humanitarian issues associated with a nuclear reactor flying through the air across intercontinental distances — especially a reactor running hot enough to superheat ingested atmospheric gases for propulsion and probably of necessity lacking much by way of radiation shielding. What would the implications be if it were to crash or be shot down, moreover, especially if its flight route took it for thousands of miles through the airspace of any number of countries? Yet even leaving those obvious concerns aside, it is far from clear that such a system would make any sense whatsoever from a stability perspective. Quite the contrary.

Some strategists might perhaps value such a missile as a strategic delivery system because of its potential ability to arrive over enemy territory at low level and from an unexpected or even unwatched point of the compass after a long and craftily circuitous transit. The extreme range that could make this possible might indeed make defending against such a missile difficult, but that’s hardly the end of the story, and such an apparent advantage would likely be offset by other problems. The possibility of an “infinite-range” cruise device might well be quite destabilizing, and could create a major risk of inadvertent nuclear war — not least because of the weird, but hardly hypothetical, possibility that such a missile could be launched into indefinite-duration “holding pattern” flight paths that might be intended to maximize perceptions of imminent threat in order to facilitate an aggressor’s coercive diplomacy, but that in fact would likely elicit unpredictably escalatory responses and escalation dynamics.

I would think that the moral of this story about the stability externalities of unlimited range is simple: it is foolish to plunge forward in nuclear weapons and delivery system development rashly. Considerations of stability cannot be ignored, and the fact that one can build something does not always mean that one should. Some choices are just bad ones.

E. Transparency and Clarity

Sixth, and finally, I believe there is intrinsic value in offering the kind of transparency that helps provide one’s potential clarity about how one thinks about nuclear weapons. I don’t mean the kind of “transparency” that relates to exactly how many one has, specific details about exactly when one would (or would not) actually use a nuclear weapon, or sensitive details about their deployment. Instead, I’m referring to insight into the basic concepts that underlie one’s nuclear posture and doctrine. Providing reasonable clarity about posture and doctrine can serve the interests both of deterrence and of crisis stability and escalation management, by helping increase predictability and reducing the kinds of uncertainty that may fuel dangerously mistaken assumptions.

This is a kind of transparency that we in the United States provide very publicly with every edition of our Nuclear Posture Review, as well as in periodic public statements, reports, and documents of various varieties. We are, in fact, by far the most transparent of any nuclear weapons possessor in this respect. We make such information public, we explain it to adversaries and onlookers alike, and we defend it in public so that we are as clear as we can be about the role that nuclear weapons play in our defense planning and the reasons for the posture choices we have made.

Nobody else does it like this, but I would argue that they should: the more transparency of this sort, the better. As I noted last year in an event at the Preparatory Committee meeting for the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty in Geneva — at which two of us from the U.S. State Department joined representatives from the Office of the Secretary of Defense and the Joint Chiefs of Staff in explaining the latest Nuclear Posture Review — we Americans are deeply transparent about these fundamental conceptual and doctrinal issues, and we challenge other possessors to follow our lead in being that way too.

IV. Conclusion

As I said earlier, I hope no one takes the arguments I have suggested as entirely conclusive. I offer them not as hard and fast conclusions, but as illustrations of a stability-focused thought process. We in the United States engaged in a good deal of such thinking for decades, and we must not forget how to do it. Such ways of thinking may also be worth fostering with and among nuclear powers engaged in their own nuclear weapons relationships.

 

At any rate, I hope this gets you thinking. To that end, I hope the scholarly and think tank communities can work with us to encourage the development of stability-mindful strategic thinking — and hence real nuclear risk reduction — wherever national leaders find themselves in enduring nuclear weapons relationships. We must all endeavor to prevent our relationships from collapsing into conflict during the presumably still lengthy era still ahead of humanity until – in the phrasing of Article VI of the Nuclear Nonproliferation Treaty – we can ease international tension and strengthen trust between states enough to permit the stable and sustainable elimination of all such weapons.

Thank you.

          Capital 'improvements' are nightmare for tenants      Cache   Translate Page      

As the conversation on rent regulation gains momentum in Albany, once again the landlord lobby is falsely claiming that the major capital improvements program, which has led to billions of dollars in rent hikes, is necessary for maintaining habitable buildings and providing good jobs to local residents.

These tired arguments have been repeated to the tenant movement for decades in an attempt to threaten us and scare us. MCIs were enacted in 1969 at the request of landlords who argued that, thanks to rent stabilization, they were unable to maintain their buildings and needed incentives to make repairs. The MCI law didn’t lead to an improved housing stock. The Bronx burned along with the rest of the city.

Today, landlords make the same claim—that without any incentives or additional rent hikes it will be the 1970s all over again.

Let me paint a starkly different reality. I have lived on the Grand Concourse in the Bronx since 1992. For 23 years, we only received patchwork repairs. My corporate landlord, a company with 75 buildings in its growing portfolio, already received annual rent increases from the Rent Guidelines Board during this period to pay for maintenance. In 2015, our landlord began gut-renovating all of our bathroom and kitchens.

At first, I was ecstatic and welcomed these changes after decades of neglect. But the work dragged on for weeks. Sixty families had to share a single bathroom and could not cook. After the work was completed, I was astounded to receive a letter from the state's Division of Homes and Community Renewal informing us our landlord had applied for a permanent rent increase.

Was the work necessary? No. Our bathrooms and kitchens worked perfectly fine. It was purely cosmetic and in fact, raised the value of the building for our corporate landlord. Several of my neighbors have already moved out because of the first hike. We expect the state housing agency to rubber-stamp another four MCIs for windows, pointing, elevators and re-piping, which would mean rent hikes of hundreds of dollars.

I had never heard of an MCI. Now I know it’s another tool of displacement that landlords have weaponized against us. And it’s all starting to make sense to me. With the recent rezoning of Jerome Avenue, displacement has intensified.

          What happens now that Theresa May's Brexit deal has been rejected again?      Cache   Translate Page      

Britain's Prime Minister Theresa May speaks in Parliament in London, Britain, March 12, 2019.

  • British Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal has been defeated for a second time.
  • The defeat means May will now hold a series of votes on leaving the EU without a deal or delaying Brexit.
  • Any delay would allow MPs to take control of Brexit.
  • MPs are pushing for a softer Brexit or a second EU referendum.

LONDON — Prime Minister Theresa May's Brexit deal suffered another landslide defeat on Tuesday after Members of Parliament voted to reject it by a vote of 391 to 242.

The margin of defeat is ominous for the prime minister, who appears to have very few viable options left. So what will happen next?

The prime minister has committed to holding two key votes this week. The first, on Wednesday, will ask whether MPs support a no-deal Brexit. The second, on Thursday, will ask them whether they wish to delay Brexit by extending Article 50.

A majority of MPs have already voted to express opposition to no deal, and parliament will likely express its opposition again on Wednesday.

The more significant question is about what happens on Thursday. If parliament votes for an Article 50 extension, May will be forced to request one in Brussels, a move that will be deeply unpopular with her own party.

Here are a few outcomes that could follow:

1. A softer Brexit

Jeremy Corbyn

Remain-supporting MPs are planning to table an amendment to Thursday's motion, which, if passed, would force the government to hold a series of indicative votes in parliament on Brexit outcomes, including a second referendum, a no-deal exit, and single-market membership.

That would put May in a very difficult position because there is a potential parliamentary majority for a deal that involves a permanent customs-union membership of the kind the Labour Party has backed. The support would likely comprise some Tory MPs and most Labour MPs, but May is firmly opposed to such a policy.

If parliament has expressed its support for a softer Brexit by Thursday, May would find it very difficult to ignore. At that point, parliament would have much greater influence over the next stages of proceedings.

It is possible in such an outcome that the prime minister could be compelled to negotiate for a deal involving customs-union membership, something that would likely require an extension of a couple of months. 

The agreement between the EU and the UK published on Monday stipulated that the UK would have to put forward members of the European Parliament for election if it remained failed to leave the EU before May 23, so that may be the cut-off date for a brief extension, during which the prime minister would attempt to negotiate a softer deal.

2. A no-deal Brexit

Jacob Rees-MoggThe prospect of a no-deal Brexit is not, by any means, off the table. The default legal position is that the UK will leave the EU, deal or no deal on March 29, and it could still happen if the prime minister manoeuvres to engineer such an outcome and if parliament fails to coalesce around an alternative strategy.

It could happen for the simple reason that even extending Article 50 does not remove the possibility of a no-deal exit. Even if parliament votes to force May to ask the EU for an Article 50 extension, she could simply ask for a delay of a few months. After that, the UK could still technically leave without a deal.

3. A long delay to Brexit

Theresa May Jean-Claude JunckerIt is also possible that May or her replacement will ask the EU for a lengthy Article 50 extension to give parliament the time to work out a proper strategy. Doing so would be politically explosive, and it seems unlikely that May would pursue such a policy against her own will. However, it is possible that MPs could table an amendment to Thursday's motion stipulating that the prime minister should ask for an extension of a fixed time period — 12 or 20 months, perhaps. However, it is unclear whether there is a parliamentary majority for such an outcome, as many MPs are worried about the prospect of being seen to frustrate Brexit.

Britain may have little choice but to seek a lengthier extension, however. With the EU setting a deadline of the last week of May for any short extension, the UK government may find itself forced into opting for a longer exit.

4. A general election

Theresa May and Jeremy CorbynConservative Grandee Simon Clarke, a leading Brexiteer and member of the European Research Group, broke ranks before Tuesday's vote to say that the prime minister should call a general election if she lost Tuesday's vote. The logic is that the prime minister could campaign on a manifesto to deliver Brexit, increase her majority, and isolate the hardline Brexiteers. The problem is that the prime minister would need to increase her majority by a huge margin to deliver the kind of deal she is trying to push through.

However, Clarke was not alone. There has been increasing chatter among Tory MPs that Downing Street could feel forced to call a snap election, and that it could have the backing of a majority in parliament (which would need to approve such a move because it would contravene the legally binding Fixed-term Parliament Act, which states that the next election will be in 2022).

"It seems unlikely, but so does every single other possible outcome," one Conservative MP told BI on Monday.

5. Theresa May resigns

Theresa MayIn normal political times, May would have resigned several months ago. She has survived multiple catastrophic defeats in parliament during her brief premiership, any single one of which would previously have been a resigning matter.

But this is no normal government, and these are not normal times. There is some feeling that replacing her at this stage wouldn't achieve very much, especially if she was replaced by a Brexiteer who tried to push through a similarly undeliverable deal. One former minister who voted against the deal tonight told BI: "I'm not sure what replacing the prime minister would achieve."

Furthermore, it is not technically possible for MPs to remove her as things stand because she survived a confidence vote in December 2018, which gives her a 12-month window of immunity from defenestration attempts.

However, she could ultimately decide, or be persuaded to decide, that her premiership has run her course and that now is the time to step down, and hand over the reins for a different leader to have a go.

6. A second EU referendum

Brexit protestMay has long refused to countenance the prospect of a second EU referendum. However, the scale of the defeat and the prospect of a disastrous no-deal Brexit could lead to a change of heart.

One factor driving any change would be an offer by MPs to back the deal in exchange for holding a "confirmatory" referendum. This is the position pushed by Labour MP Peter Kyle and one that has been considered by the opposition Labour Party. Although still an outside possibility, the prospect of a second referendum can still not be ruled out.

SAN ANSELMO, CA - MARCH 13:  Kfir Lindheim does a deadlift during a CrossFit workout at Ross Valley CrossFit on March 13, 2014 in San Anselmo, California. CrossFit, a high intensity workout regimen that is a constantly varied mix of aerobic exercise, gymnastics and Olympic weight lifting, is one of the fastest growing fitness programs in the world. The grueling cult-like core strength and conditioning program is popular with firefighters, police officers, members of the military and professional athletes. Since its inception in 2000, the number of CrossFit affiliates, or "boxes" has skyrocketed to over 8,500 worldwide with more opening every year.  (Photo by Justin Sullivan/Getty Images)

If your goal is to add lean muscle and mass, everyone will tell you that you need to focus on two main exercises: the squat and the deadlift. Whether you really aim to get into shape, or start building some serious muscle, you’ll want to zero-in on on your legs — because developing the muscle groups in your legs will not only help you burn more calories, they will also help you tone and train every other muscle group in the body.

          If This is Your Best Argument for More Charter Money, um....      Cache   Translate Page      
Today, the Plain Dealer reported on an updated look at Ohio charter school performance from the Center for Research on Educational Outcomes (CREDO). The center, which is housed at the free market Hoover Institute at Stanford University, discovered that Ohio charter schools are performing about as poorly as ever.

"There is little to no progress in Ohio charter school performance," concluded CREDO Director Macke Raymond, whose comments several years ago about how the free market system hadn't worked in education caused quite a stir.

However, like most charter school analyses ever done in Ohio, CREDO did find pockets of success among brick-and-mortar charters, and blamed the overall stagnant performance on e-schools. Leave it to Aaron Churchill of the Fordham Institute to drive a truck through that mouse hole.

Here's how the PD reported it:
"After years of shortchanging charter students, lawmakers should finally move to fund brick-and-mortar charters equitably, helping to kick-start new-school formation and the rapid expansion of the state’s top-performing charters,” Churchill wrote.
Obviously trying to piggyback on his dubious claim that charters don't get enough money and have earned a raise from state lawmakers, Churchill really stretches out over his skis here. There are major caveats with CREDO's methodology (for a detailed breakdown, take a read here), but here is my major concern -- the group only looks at student growth.

That is one of MANY measures of a school's performance. And growth has always been an area where charters and districts perform more similarly. Districts still beat charters pretty well on the measure, but it's not quite the runaway contest that proficiency or graduation rates are, for example.

Here's another thing: Ohio's been artificially deflating school district performance for years now, dragging down their overall grades to better comport with historic charter school performance. Don't believe me? Take a look at the percentage of grades each sector has received each year since the state started using the A-F system in the 2012-2013 school year.

 What you can see is that since Ohio started changing its testing regime, and more heavily weighting the more charter-friendly "value added" measure, low district grades have skyrocketed. Meanwhile, charter grades have pretty well stayed the same during the same period -- overall pretty bad. Importantly, though, Districts still have less than half the rate of F grades as charters. Just saying.

This got me thinking about the whole light speed thing again.

"Huh?" you ask.

Let me explain.

According to Einstein's Theory of Relativity, it is impossible to go faster than the speed of light (though as a sci-fi fan, I sure hope it's not) because it requires infinite energy. So you can approach light speed, but never go over it.

How does this apply to state report card grades? Well, it's like this: Charter performance was so bad, it would have been impossible for them to get much worse. So they had nowhere to go but up, really. Meanwhile, school district performance was flying quite high in 2012-2013, with barely 10 percent of district grades being designated Fs. So when the state starts implementing new tests over a short period, districts have a farther way to fall, which they do (by design, I might add), which makes it seem like maybe charters are gaining on districts, when in fact district performance is simply being artificially dropped not by actual performance, but by state policy changes. 

Does anyone actually believe that districts are twice as likely to have failing grades today as they were 5 years ago? Please.

What is amazing is that charter school performance has remained remarkably consistent. And poor. Yes, their Fs and Ds jumped a bit after all the testing changes. But really, they've been at about 50 percent Fs all along. Is this because charters did a better job at handling the changes?

No. It's because they were approaching light speed already, and they couldn't have done much worse overall. So even though Churchill and others claim that charters have demonstrated their worth and earned the right for a pay raise from the state, I contend if you think they should get a pay raise now, why shouldn't it have come in the 2012-2013 school year when only 40 percent rather than 50 percent of their grades were Fs? Why would we reward their worse performance today?

Yes, it is true they've improved since the low point of 2015-2016 (the last of the three consecutive years of test switching). But they still receive a higher rate of failing grades than they did in 2012-2013 and have only seen a 17 percent drop in frequency of Fs. Districts have cut their F frequency by 22 percent.

Want another staggering data point?

Since the 2012-2013 school year, a total of 11,832 grades were handed out to the state's charter schools (only 7 schools were statewide e-schools for this whole period, by the way, so the vast majority of these grades are for brick-and-mortar schools). Of those 11,832 grades, more than half were Fs. That means since 2012-2013, charter schools have received more Fs than all other grades combined. The number of As? Barely 1,000. Out of nearly 12,000.

What grade have districts received more than any other?

As.

By more than 1,000.

And this is despite the fact that districts' performance has been intentionally Nerfed by state policymakers who desperately want charter schools to succeed even though the evidence is pretty overwhelming they aren't overall.

Can charter schools work here? I believe they can on a limited basis. Are there pockets of success?Yes. Of course. But for advocates like Fordham to contend an overall performance revolution in Ohio charter schools as the basis for an overall pay raise for this long-struggling sector that even charter advocates admit aren't improving a whole lot, stretches the bounds of reason, especially given how much the state has divested from the 90 percent of kids who aren't in charters.

Let's fund charters based on what it actually costs to educate kids there. Let's give performance bonuses where warranted. Let's do it without hurting kids who aren't in charters.

And let's see what happens.

          MIPS 2019 steals the dance floor in Nashville with talk of disruption, innovation and more      Cache   Translate Page

Ginger Schlueter

NASHVILLE—Tagged as “Milestone Community Days,” MIPS 2019 explored the intelligent world through the eyes and knowledge of a variety of security professionals, who presented new-found insights. The following paints the landscape of the event in terms of the most discussed highlights, topics and themes. 

Artificial Intelligence (AI), the Cloud and Disruption
Sweeping the world of technology is the mindset of a future filled with evolution to further fuel society’s “we-have-what-we-want-when-we- want-it” mentality by harnessing the power of AI and ML, creating solutions that are disrupting and will further disrupt the industry.

“Disruption has already started; how do you want to respond,” Brian Solis, principal analyst at Altimeter Group, a Prophet company, said during his keynote presentation, questioning the audience. “It’s not about just serving people, but adding value to their lives by giving hope, helping people get closer to achieving their goals, and finishing their everyday tasks faster and more efficiently.”

Milestone and their partners are responding to this disruption by unfolding AI by journeying from the client server to the cloud. The company’s goal is to unpack all of the client server’s capabilities and take a hybrid approach to cloud. VMS data must be deconstructed and able to move between “on prem” or the cloud so that workloads can be available where ever needed.

“Milestone has been investing into the future of cloud for several years, even to the point of sacrificing the development of our own product family,” Tim Palmquist, VP Americas, Milestone Systems, explained. “It will take many years for cloud to catch up with the client server as we know it today.”

The Copenhagen Letter and Clause
This letter was written in 2017 to “everyone who shapes technology today,” allowing people to commit to putting humans before business by adding their full name and email to digitally sign the letter. Those who signed hold themselves and others accountable for putting the following ideas into practice:
•    Tech is not above us.
•    Progress is more than innovation.
•    Let us build from trust.
•    Design open to scrutiny.
•    Let us move from human-centered design to humanity-centered design.

Going along with these commitments, Milestone announced it will be including a “Copenhagen Clause” in its end-user licensing agreements and other legal documents. Incorporating the clause allows for continued conversations around ethics and using technology responsibly.

“Our technology is more powerful today, so consider responsible use,” Palmquist said. “Technology doesn’t know if it’s being used for good or bad; it’s humans’ job to do that.”

Cybersecurity
Always top of mind within the industry, Fredrik Nilsson, VP of the Americas, Axis Communications indicated time is the key to successful cybersecurity.
“When, not if, a cyber security breach happens, how quickly it’s addressed,” he said, is essential to overcoming the damage and getting customers back to full use of the system itself as fast as possible.

Innovation
Innovation takes time, perhaps because creating something new requires change and change is not easy for some. Nevertheless, people have a “drive to solve the ‘broken’ and ‘painful’ with new ideas and solutions,” Solis said. Looking forward leads to innovation while focusing on the past leads to iteration.

A new company is taking innovation seriously by launching their open IoT platform for security cameras at ISC West 2019. SAST. is a fully owned but independent Bosch start-up with an ecosystem of rules and ethical guidelines to ensure data privacy. SAST. partnered with the Open Security & Safety Alliance to create a framework of standards and specifications for common components—operating systems, IoT infrastructure, data security and privacy, and improved levels of performance for security and safety solutions.

“We are launching three 2019 pilot programs in transportation, airport and retail, as well as participating in hackathons,” Peter Jelinski, VP partner management, SAST., said.

When it comes to innovation, Fredrik Nilsson, VP of the Americas, Axis Communications, offered this advice: “Don’t over promise and fulfill expectations.”

Market Challenges
With so much data being generated from various devices and sources, it’s important to create value out of this data. However, there are some challenges that Johan Jubbega, president, Open Security & Safety Alliance identified during his keynote that hinders this process.

“With the number of connected devices, the amount of data is skyrocketing,” he said. “There is an increasing need for customization, as one size doesn’t fit all, as well as the need for data security with such a high number of smart, connected devices.”

In general, and across all use cases, data is not being used to its full potential.

Milestone Marketplace
Launched during MIPS 2019 exclusively for Milestone Technology Partners, Marketplace is a centralized knowledge hub of installation guides, demos and other relevant documentation. Partners can also market their applications, hardware or services to potential buyers globally and in return buyers are able to quickly find solutions, connect with sellers and access relevant information.

“Four thousand four hundred minutes have go into building Marketplace,” Susan VonBulow, senior digital project manager, Milestone Systems, told MIPS participants.

Overall, the event celebrated Milestone’s partners with a “forward focused journey on unlocking power and value, promoting the responsible use of technology, and reducing friction,” Palmquist said.

          Did Water On Asteroids Start Life On Earth?      Cache   Translate Page      
Scientists are currently looking into just how much water near-Earth asteroids are actually carrying. The research could tell if minerals found in space rocks have "alien" organic molecules that can support life or if they can be used as a resource for other things like rocket fuel. According to Space.com, scientists have spotted about 20,000 space rocks floating around the space near our planet. These are believed to be carrying enough water to support life and serve other purposes.

国内油价明日24时或迎“第4降” 92号油或降9分钱 国际原油市场的复苏之路并不平坦。经过8月中下旬的快速攀升,进入9月,国际油价不断向下调整。受此影响,在“二连涨”之后,9月18日24时,我国成品油调价时间窗口再次开启,国内油价有望迎来年内第四次下调。8月中旬,布伦特原油期货价格曾一度重返每桶50美元,纽约原油期货价格也升至每桶48美元上方。而9月1日这两大全球基准油价分别跌至每桶45.45美元和每桶43.16美元。虽然后期有小幅震荡回升,但国际油价已无力挑战前期的高点。“目前来看,本轮成品油调价不会搁浅,但可能是今年以来的最小降幅。”国内能源研究机构隆众资讯油品分析师李彦表示,预计9月18日24时调价窗口开启时,国内汽、柴油降幅分别为每吨120元和115元,折合92号汽油每升下调0.09元、0号柴油每升下调0.1元。国际能源研究机构安迅思数据模型测算,按照目前国际油价水平看,9月18日24时国内汽柴油零售价降幅预计在每吨105元,测算到零售价格90号汽油和0号柴油(全国平均)每升分别下调0.08元和0.09元。本轮国内成品油调价周期是今年以来第十八轮周期,汽、柴油价格经历两次搁浅、三次下调、六次上调、六次因国际油价低于每桶40美元的“地板价”而不调整。至此,今年以来,我国汽、柴油价格累计分别上涨每吨470元和455元。》》》大申今日推荐:阵雨大风肆虐到下周一 申城今日或可见彩云追月 上海一小区树木被风吹倒 轿车挡风玻璃被砸碎团伙扮医疗人员推销保健品 一阿婆险中招损失12万iPhone7开售首日又现高烧 亮黑色新机炒到1.5万元静安筹划建上千个书屋 打造身边的“阅读天地” 黄金冲高回落 油价继续反弹 (该视频仅供延展。)动动手指,随时查询交通违法! 扫一扫下方二维码,关注腾讯大申网! 欢迎关注腾讯大申网微信(微信号:dashenw)相关的主题文章: engineering+services+outsourc Posts – Page 1 – ArticleSnatch.com 印度制造溃不成军 建筑技艺比木拱廊桥简单些 陈红素颜现身 女子产假公司解散   保安受伤倒地后报警 乐视总部躺讨债人 杭州小区孝心车位 there is a high demand for jewellery than any time in the past and the sky rocketing gold prices can be a classic example of this phenomenon.

Chris Grayling’s 2013 reforms have cost more, yet failed to cut reoffending or reduce staff shortages

Steve Brown has just completed three months on home detention curfew, having left prison at the end of November. Things are looking up. He has had his electronic tag removed and last week moved into new supported accommodation. “I’m in a good place,” he says, “but no thanks to the probation service.”

Earlier this month, the government’s spending watchdog issued a damning critique of former justice secretary Chris Grayling’s 2013 probation reforms, which, in its assessment, had been “set up to fail”. According to the National Audit Office (NAO), the number of offenders returned to prison has “skyrocketed” and taxpayers face paying at least £467m more than anticipated.

Baghuz Battle Against IS Remnants 'as Good as Over'

Baghuz Battle Against IS Remnants 'as Good as Over'

 

Jeff Seldin – Voice of America

 

Fires raged to the sound of gunfire and exploding artillery shells overnight in the Islamic State enclave of Baghuz in what U.S.-backed forces hope will be the last night for the terror group’s self-proclaimed caliphate.

Syrian Democratic Forces have been closing in on the last shred of IS territory in northeastern Syria, advancing slowly due to the presence of mines and booby traps, encountering what they describe as fierce resistance.

But by midday Tuesday, SDF officials were optimistic the caliphate’s death knell was near.

"The operation is over, or as good as over, but requires a little more time to be completed practically," SDF spokesman Kino Gabriel told al-Hadath TV.

 

Earlier in the day, SDF spokesman Mustafa Bali said the U.S.-backed forces had advanced against IS in Baghuz on multiple axis, killing 38 IS fighters, even as they fought back, launching two rockets of their own.

Bali said IS positions in Baghuz were also pounded by 20 coalition airstrikes, which destroyed numerous defensive fortifications, weapons depots and several command posts.

Despite the heavy fighting, he said the SDF had suffered minimal casualties, with only three killed and another 10 wounded.

The SDF launched its final assault on the IS enclave late Sunday after pausing operations for nearly a week to allow more than 20,000 civilians, many related to IS fighters, to evacuate Baghuz for displaced persons camps. Hundreds of fighters also surrendered.

 

Officials with both the SDF and the United States were expecting a difficult battle over the collection of tents and wrecked buildings spanning no more than 1.6 square kilometers.

IS has been using a network of tunnels, caves and trenches to hide and launch counter attacks. U.S. and SDF officials described the system as complex, extending possibly for more than two kilometers, and rigged with explosives and booby traps.

 

Sources close to SDF leadership told VOA late Monday that although the battle for Baghuz was entering its final stages, there was concern the tunnel network might be even more extensive than initially thought.

They had also voiced concern about how many IS fighters were left to defend the last shred of the terror group's self-declared caliphate, saying despite all the evacuations, hundreds of fighters, or more, might still be preparing to make a final stand.

A senior U.S. defense official said many of those still in Baghuz had been moving with IS for years, sticking with the terror group battle after battle.

“They want to continue the fight even if there’s not a physical territory to protect,” the official said.

Other U.S. officials have warned that IS used the evacuation of thousands of civilians in order to buy time.

The commander of U.S. forces in the Middle East, Gen. Joseph Votel, told U.S. lawmakers last week the evacuations were not a surrender but a “calculated decision” and part of a strategy to allow the terror group to complete its transition to a clandestine insurgency.

In an audio recording posted online Sunday, an IS fighter claiming to be in Baghuz called on other followers to find inspiration in the fight and take action.

“My brothers in Europe and in the whole world ... be fierce and hard on the Crusaders,” the fighter said, according to a translation by the SITE Intelligence Group. “Kill them and displace them in revenge for your religion and your dignity.”

In a video, likely recorded in February in Baghuz, another fighter says death would be a “victory” for the last of the IS defenders as they never lost their faith.

 

Despite losing administrative control over almost all the land it once held in Syria and Iraq, U.S. defense officials warn IS still has "tens of thousands" of fighters working either as part of sleeper cells or as part of an active, clandestine insurgency.

A series of reports issued starting last year warned IS could have as many as 30,000 followers and fighters in Syria and Iraq, with officials cautioning they remain "well-positioned" to rebuild a physical caliphate.

          Several new ‘Avengers: Endgame’ spoilers just came from the most unexpected place      Cache   Translate Page      
Marvel and Disney are both very secretive about their MCU films, trying to keep fans guessing until they go to theaters to see the latest flick in the series. That’s especially true for Avengers: Endgame, which will easily become Marvel’s top-grossing movie of all time. After all, it's the epic conclusion of Phase 3 of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. As hard as Marvel and Disney try though, leaks are still bound to happen and there's really nothing that can be done to completely stop them. This latest leak brings several spoilers, and it comes from the most unexpected place. It wasn’t too long ago that Audi told the world Tony Stark would return to Earth in spite of being stranded in space with Nebula after the fight on Titan in Infinity War. That’s because Stark will get to drive the latest electric concept the carmaker created in Endgame, and the only way to do it is for Stark to return home. Since then, we also learned that Stark and Nebula would indeed arrive on Earth after their Titan adventure, thanks to footage from the movie that Disney showed to a select few people at the company's shareholders meeting. We've seen plenty of leaked toys from several manufacturers including Lego. The figurines and Lego sets are based on the events of Endgame, and they imply there’s going to be time travel in the upcoming movie. This brings us to a new set of leaked images that show new Coke cans created to help promote Avengers: Endgame. You can see them in the images below, which were posted on MCU Cosmic and Reddit. In the leaked images we see Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Hulk, Black Widow, Hawkeye, and Captain Marvel all suited up for battle. The images show a Steve Rogers with no beard wearing the Captain America suit, Bruce Banner hulking out again, as well as Natasha rocking red hair as opposed to the blonde hairstyle from trailers and the Captain Marvel credits scene. The hairstyle change is also a suggestion that the main action in Endgame will take place sometime after Wakanda, and it hints that time travel might be in store. And yes, Hawkeye is back too. Some of these are minor spoilers — that Rogers is Captain America again, that Hulk comes out of hiding, and that Hawkeye is back — but they’re spoilers nonetheless. After all, Coca Cola partnered with Marvel to make these cans and the information they present has to be relevant to the movie. The Russo brothers dismissed toy leaks a few weeks ago, saying they may be based on concepts that are no longer part of the film. I’m not sure you can say the same thing about these Coke cans. That said, unlike Lego toy sets that provide more context for the spoilers, all we have here are images of the heroes and some villains. The second set of cans also feature Ant-Man and Rocket Raccoon, as well as Thanos. These cans were found in Brazil:
          The biggest question from ‘Captain Marvel’ might not be answered until the sequel comes out      Cache   Translate Page      
Captain Marvel may have provided various details that help us better prepare for Avengers Endgame, but the brand new MCU film also brought to light other mysteries that we definitely want to see answered at some point in the future. Before you go any further, you should know that some spoilers will follow below, and they're significant enough to ruin some of the fun you’ll have watching Captain Marvel for the first time. The most significant new puzzle concerns Captain Marvel’s whereabouts. She’s been missing in action for nearly 25 years when it comes to the events on Earth, or at least that’s what we’re led to believe at the end of Captain Marvel. However, we may soon learn what she’s been up to all this time. A few days ago, Marvel officially told us that we have no idea whether Nick Fury sent any distress signals to Carol in the past. We only see him do it in Avengers: Infinity War as a last resort. The post-credits scenes in Captain Marvel reveal that Carol has survived the snap, she got Fury’s message, and she returned to Earth ready for action, complete with a brand new suit. In the Avengers: Endgame scene that Disney showed a select few people in attendance at its annual shareholders meeting last week, it was revealed that Captain Marvel is sure her presence will help the Avengers' chances of defeating Thanos. She’s also the one to encourage them to go after him using information provided by Rocket and Nebula. Finally, the brief dialogue tells us that Captain Marvel has been busy protecting other planets that don’t have any Avengers. That detail alone seems especially interesting considering what Marvel’s Kevin Feige told ET last week. Asked whether the storyline of the Kree-Skrull conflict has ended with Captain Marvel, the exec said that we have no idea what happens next, and that story can be explored in greater detail in the future:
Well, we don't know what she did, right? She said she was going to and she went flying off at the end, and then we jump many years into the future. What happened in that intervening time, I think, is something that would be a lot of fun to explore at some point.
Any future Kree-Skrull story will have to contain some Captain Marvel scenes. After all, she did want to provide safety to the Skrulls and bring the fight to the Kree. Feige was later asked whether Marvel has any idea where to move forward with Captain Marvel for a sequel, considering that she wandered off into space at the end of the first movie and she wasn’t seen again until just before Endgame. Feige explained that they have ideas for both continuing the story in the ‘90s and the present day:
We have ideas for both. We'll see. We always think and dream about potential additional adventures, but really focus on the one we literally finished a week and a half ago.
He also said the studio has an internal timeline that would bridge the gap between Captain Marvel and Iron Man, though he failed to disclose any specifics:
In a general fashion. The blanks are filled in as we make the movies, and until it solidifies into an actual film, there are multiple branching timelines.
Feige said before that Captain Marvel will become the new leader of the Avengers, implying that some bad things might happen in Endgame to some of the existing leaders, namely Iron Man and Captain America. Brie Larson already has a multi-picture deal in place with Marvel Studios, although Captain Marvel and Endgame are the only two titles so far that we know she's in.
          ‘Captain Marvel’ answers tons of ‘Avengers: Endgame’ questions – here are all the mysteries it solved      Cache   Translate Page      
Captain Marvel will top the box office with ease this weekend, considering it's the most anticipated film of the week and the final Marvel movie before Avengers: Endgame. As expected, the movie answers plenty of questions about Endgame and the MCU universe, but it also creates plenty of new mysteries as well. After all, we’re looking at a span of 15 years between Captain Marvel and The Avengers, and Nick Fury started working with some of the original Avengers well ahead of that. Mind you, if you haven’t seen Captain Marvel, you’re in for quite a few spoilers — the same goes for Endgame too, as we’re going to discuss the Captain Marvel post-credits scenes and they involve Endgame. As we expected, Captain Marvel doesn’t just introduce Carol Danvers as Captain Marvel — well, technically, nobody uses her superhero name at all in the movie. The film also covers the creation of the Avengers program, as well as Nick Fury’s evolution from a regular old spy to a determined operative who’s about to form the most powerful team of heroes on Earth. We finally found out how Captain Marvel is born. It’s not the Kree who turned Carol Danvers into a superhero. They just put a contraption on her that was designed to limit her power. What’s interesting is that the Tesseract's energy is what created this superhero. She’s the most powerful Avenger, if you think about it, considering what she can do. Also, she’s the real first Avenger. Captain America shouldn’t even be considered the first Avenger even though he was the first human with extraordinary abilities in the MCU, and he got them back in World War 2 — of course, we’re all ignoring the fact that Wakanda had a Black Panther for thousands of years, but I digress. It’s because of Carol’s fighter plane that Fury gets his inspiration for the Avengers program. The ‘Protector Initiative’ sounds incredibly dull. As for her suit, the differences between the original Captain Marvel armor and the one we see in the credits scene might not be that major. We’re just looking at a different paint job, and we’ve already learned that the suit lets you customize the colors as you see fit. We also know that Carol took Fury’s pager from him so he couldn’t call backup without her knowledge. She then tweaked it and gave it back to the SHIELD boss only for emergencies. We’ve now officially learned from Marvel that we have no real idea whether or not Fury had tried to call on Captain Marvel before Infinity War. She will appear on Earth very soon after the snap. What the leaked credits scenes didn’t make entirely clear, because they were so blurry, was that Captain Rogers and Co. were monitoring the count of dead people at the Avengers compound when the pager stopped working. When you watch the scene in theaters, you'll see that the pager still had Captain Marvel’s colors on it. Even so, nobody on the team recognized the symbol. Not even Natasha, who’s been with Fury for years. Not even Rocket, who may have heard stories about it — though that assumes Rocket is with them somewhere. In the days preceding the film’s launch we also learned that Samuel L. Jackson's claim that Captain Marvel can travel through time was made up, which means any theory or “leaked” story that says Carol can travel through time is bogus. We also learned how Fury lost his eye. The filmmakers trolled us once, but it turns out that it’s the “cat” who did it. Although that’s not something Fury will ever confirm or deny. Also, it’s understandable why he doesn’t trust anybody. He just witnessed shape-shifting aliens on earth, as well as a cat with monstrous tentacles shooting out of her mouth. The universe is a lot bigger than he thought, and a lot more dangerous. There’s also Agent Coulson to consider. It’s clear why Fury trusted him for so many years. Coulson had his back in Captain Marvel and proved to be a worthy SHIELD agent. Let’s also address Ronan the Accuser’s brief appearance in Captain Marvel. He realizes the massive potential of Carol Danvers after witnessing her destroy one of his ships and says he’s going to be back for this weapon. It’s unclear at this point whether they’re aware that an Infinity Stone gave Carol her powers. But witnessing Captain Marvel’s power may have been enough for Ronan to decide to keep the Power Stone for himself in the future, in Guardians of the Galaxy, after realizing what that artifact could offer him. Finally, there was no Doctor Strange in Captain Marvel whatsoever. As much as he may prove to have influenced events of the past, he wasn’t shown anywhere in the film or the post-credits scenes. Of course, doing so would give us a major Endgame spoiler. We can't conclude this post without mentioning Stan Lee. He appears in the movie, playing himself repeating a line from a movie you might be aware of: Mallrats. That's also a huge nod to Kevin Smith, and it's quite puzzling. Speaking of things that are puzzling, we also looked at all the new questions Captain Marvel raises and rounded them up in a single post — check it out at this link.

          How the Air Pollution Crisis Can Affect You      Cache   Translate Page      

According to the World Health Organization (WHO) 92 percent of the world's population breathe polluted air,1 and nearly 7 million deaths can be attributed to air pollution each year.2 An overall toxic environment is responsible for at least 25 percent of deaths reported worldwide, and poor air quality is one of the greatest contributors to this risk.3

Your body is dependent on the air you breathe. Poor quality can damage your lungs, heart and other organs’ systems. Sources of pollution take the form of emissions from factories, cars, planes and aerosol cans. Secondhand cigarette smoke pollutes indoor air, as do volatile organic compounds emitted from many household items, such as carpeting, furniture and chemical cleaners.

Indoor air pollution may be dependent on ventilation in the building, as well as insulation and construction materials. Short-term health effects can include illnesses such as pneumonia or bronchitis and exacerbation of asthma. Many also suffer from headaches, dizziness and nausea triggered by chemicals.4

Particulate matter (PM), is a mixture of solids and liquid droplets in a wide range of sizes. PM 2.5 — particulate matter 2.5 micrometers in diameter or smaller — can only be seen with an electron microscope and is small enough to pass through your lungs and into your bloodstream.5

Long-term effects of this type of air pollution can last a lifetime and may even lead to death after damage to your heart, lungs, kidney, liver, brain or nervous system. Scientists also suspect air pollutants may trigger birth defects.6

Ethylene Oxide Poisons Air in Willowbrook and St. John the Baptist Parish

One such air pollutant is ethylene oxide poison belching from the stacks at Sterigenics in Willowbrook, Illinois, a small affluent suburb of Chicago in DuPage County. Sterigenics uses ethylene oxide to sterilize medical equipment, pharmaceuticals and food, and has been discharging the gas into the community for the past 34 years.7

Only after the Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS), a division of the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA), assessed levels of ethylene oxide in 2016 did the surrounding neighborhood learn of the danger. Although levels had been measured in the past, the chemical's status had been recently upgraded from "probable human carcinogen" to "carcinogenic to humans."8,9,10

Although the levels released into the air near the plant remained roughly the same, since the IRIS had adjusted the risk level, official reflection of risk suddenly skyrocketed.

The EPA considers the "upper limit of acceptability" for cancer risk 100 cancers for every 1 million people. In the most polluted area in DuPage County, the risk of cancer was now 282 per million. However, the values set by the IRIS were not binding, leaving residents in Willowbrook with a precisely quantified threat but no obvious way to legally address it.11

Sterigenics was previously owned by a private-equity firm cofounded by then-governor of Illinois, Bruce Rauner. One year later he left the firm to campaign for public office. Although unavailable to answer detailed questions, Rauner criticized officials for releasing the report, saying:12

"This is not an emergency. This is not a public health immediate crisis. This is something we are managing. We are going to work with the federal government to monitor this whole situation … and try to reduce exposures from this as much as we can."

EPA and Legislator Response Dramatically Different Based on Location

Although the situation in Willowbrook is drastic, the air quality in St. John the Baptist Parish in Louisiana is deplorable. This small, mostly African-American community along the Mississippi River is 30 minutes west of New Orleans with an even bigger ethylene oxide problem from a factory making chemicals used in cosmetics.

In St. John, the cancer risk from the gas is 317 per million. But ethylene oxide is only one pollutant in the air in St. John. In the most heavily polluted tract the air contains 45 industrial pollutants known to cause cancer and other serious health problems.

One of those chemicals is chloroprene, emitted from the country's one remaining neoprene factory.13 The combination of these chemicals raises the risk for residents in the small neighborhood from 317 per million to over 1,500 per million, making it the most dangerous neighborhood in the U.S., according to the EPA's report.

However, while the EPA is working alongside local and state officials to address the dangerous levels of ethylene oxide in the Willowbrook neighborhood, the agency has done next to nothing in St. John the Baptist Parish.

Concurrently, St. Charles, Louisiana, located just 30 minutes from St. John, hasn't received a visit from the EPA staff either, even though Dow Union Carbide plant spits out ethylene oxide and has raised the cancer risk in St. Charles to 710 per million, according to EPA reports.

The EPA and state legislature in Illinois have played key roles in monitoring air near the Sterigenics plant, eventually ordering the plant to shut down,14 while eight other polluted and struggling communities have received no assistance from the EPA at all. Wilma Subra, an environmental consultant, commented on the disparities between Willowbrook and other poorer communities:15

"No one has required anyone to even consider putting on control technologies here. In Illinois, EPA had ATSDR [Agency for Toxic Substances and Disease Registry] look at the risk and do air monitoring. But here in Louisiana, where we have the highest risk for ethylene oxide, they didn't do any of that."

Company Denies Rapidly Rising Health Problems Linked to Air Pollution

The people in St. John the Baptist Parish learned of their health risks after a 2010 assessment by IRIS showed chloroprene was far more dangerous than previously thought. However, the gas had been released into the community for the previous 40 years, increasing rates of leukemia, lung cancer, kidney cancer and liver cancer.

The plant, then owned by DuPont and now by Denka, had been spewing chloroprene at dangerous levels, but the EPA had not notified people near the factory when the assessment was published, nor did they contact residents when a new report came out in December 2015. According to the reporter at The Intercept:16

"In a written response to questions for this article, a spokesperson from Denka criticized the safety level for chloroprene calculated by IRIS as 'based on incomplete and flawed data' and disputed the characterization of its emissions as dangerous: 'Scientific research shows Denka Performance Elastomer's operations do not pose any additional health risks to the surrounding community.'

Denka’s spokesperson also cited research to back up that claim, noting in particular that ‘a published peer-reviewed study that tracked more than 15,000 workers in neoprene plants across the world, including 1,400 from the [St. John] LaPlace facility, found no increased incidence of cancer deaths among them since the 1940s.'

That study was paid for by the International Institute of Synthetic Rubber Producers, an industry group that includes DuPont as a member. Independent studies have shown that exposure to the chloroprene increased the risk of leukemia, kidney cancer, liver cancer, colon cancer and liver cancer."

Growing Up Green Reduces Potential for Depression and Anxiety

A lack of healthy air not only has a significant effect on physical health but also on mental health. Green space is widely understood to be health-promoting in residential environments, and has been linked to mental health benefits and reduced stress.17

Research18 from Aarhus University in Denmark also suggests access to green spaces may have a protective effect in the long term, as children growing up close to nature are less likely to develop mental health problems as adults, including depression and anxiety.

Living in a city space has been associated with higher risk of some psychiatric disorders without identification of underlying cause. In this study, green space was assessed using high resolution satellite data of the area around the participants' place of residence from birth to age 10.19

The data show the risk for mental illness for those who had the lowest level of green space was up to 55 percent higher than those who had the highest level of green space. The effect also appeared to be cumulative, as there was a stronger association between mental health and cumulative years with access to green spaces during childhood as compared to a single year.

Indoor Air Pollution Nothing to Sneeze At

Symptoms of exposure to indoor air pollution resemble those you may experience from an allergy or a cold, such as20 worsening asthma; itchy, watery eyes; headaches; dizziness; fatigue; and runny nose. These typically disappear once you leave the problem area. Chronic exposure over a longer period of time, however, may result in more chronic and serious health conditions.

Phthalates are one common contaminant found in indoor air pollution, a chemical added to plastics to improve durability and found in literally hundreds of products in American homes. Research indicates phthalates are carcinogenic and have been linked to reproductive problems, nervous system issues and immune suppression.21

The American Academy of Pediatrics,22 a group of over 65,000 pediatricians in the U.S., is asking parents to limit children's exposure to dangerous plastic chemicals, including phthalates, warning the chemicals may damage their children's health for years to come.

In a panel discussion at the latest American Association for the Advancement of Science conference,23 researchers presented data demonstrating pollutants are released into your home from everyday activities such as cooking and cleaning, and from household items like furniture and carpeting.

Researchers used an uninhabited 1,200 square-foot home on the University of Texas campus. Over 30 days, they performed a variety of household activities while measuring indoor concentrations of air pollution.

To the team's surprise, indoor concentrations were high enough that instrumentation needed to be recalibrated almost immediately. Marina Vance, Ph.D., an assistant professor of mechanical engineering at CU Boulder, commented on the results:24

"Homes have never been considered an important source of outdoor air pollution and the moment is right to start exploring that. We wanted to know: How do basic activities like cooking and cleaning change the chemistry of a house? Even the simple act of making toast raised particle levels far higher than expected. We had to go adjust many of the instruments."

Another study undertaken by Heather Stapleton, Ph.D., one of the foremost experts in the field of fire retardant chemicals, studied children in their homes, analyzing samples of dust in air, as well as blood in urine samples from the children.25

From this information they found children who lived in homes where the sofa in the main living area contained polybrominated diphenyl ethers (PBDEs) had six times higher concentration of the chemicals in their blood than children whose sofa did not contain the chemicals.

What Can You Do to Reduce Your Risk From Air Pollution?

While you may not have control over the air pollution in your neighborhood, you have some control over the air quality in your home. For a discussion of action steps to consider to reduce your health risks from indoor pollution see my previous article, "Reduce Indoor Air Pollution."

Research26 shows improving air quality also benefits your mental health by reducing "psychological distress."27 Many of the strategies discussed in my previous article are very cost-effective in the short run and may help significantly reduce your health care costs long-term.

Health coach Luke Coutinho stresses the importance of nutritional strategies to reduce the burden air pollution has on your health. While it continues to be important to avoid air pollution as much as possible and to lower the pollution levels in your home, also consider the following strategies to support detoxification:28

Eat a diet rich in nutritious, whole foods — Eating a rainbow of fruits and vegetables helps you ingest a wide range of antioxidant nutrients, many of which help your body remove toxins and reduce the effects of inflammation. Foods high in antioxidants help you meet nutritional deficiencies triggered by air pollution. Since your body uses these antioxidants to protect itself from toxins, you need a diet high in antioxidants to avoid deficiencies.

Green vegetables have chlorophyll that help rid your body of environmental toxins and pesticides. At the same time it's important to stay hydrated to help your body with elimination and to reduce or eliminate sugar, processed foods and alcohol.

Bromelain — If you're faced with congestion and upper respiratory symptoms from air pollution, consider taking bromelain or pineapple extract as it helps improve respiratory function. Bromelain is a nonenzymatic ingredient known for the ability to inhibit inflammation.

Curry — Curcumin is a potent antioxidant and anti-inflammatory compound present in turmeric used in curry. In one study,29 researchers measured respiratory function in nearly 2,500 older Chinese adults and found a diet rich in curry appeared to protect lung function in smokers.

Coutinho believes the base of most of your meal preparation should come from garlic, onion, ginger and turmeric to take advantage of the anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties of these foods.

          The Salad Windowbox      Cache   Translate Page      
For those who want to get ahead of the game or just have a small space it is time to consider the most maligned planters, the windowbox. Usurped somewhat by the hanging basket, the windowbox gave growers of every ability to grow something both inside and outside their windows. Though the weather is fickle at the moment, anything grown in a modern centrally heated home on a sunny windowsill will be like growing in a greenhouse in spring, pleasurable and rewarding. The idea for this lovely little box was provided to us by Veg in the Park, Oldham. They fit in four square pots over used butter cartons, to catch any drips from when you water. There is a mix here of rocket and salad leaves, planted in multipurpose as seeds, and though it may not give you a huge salad, it is a way to get kids, senior citizens, people with disabilities (like myself) and everyone else growing. I have never been a fan of houseplants but houseplants you can eat? I'm there. So, why not have a go at growing some rocket on a windowsill before spring starts?

"Record Debt Everywhere"
By Greg Hunter’s USAWatchdog.com 

"Money manager Peter Schiff says even though there is “record debt everywhere,” the Fed thinks the economy is fine. Schiff explains, “The actual amount of money the government is borrowing is much larger than what they pretend they are borrowing with the official budget. I think the national debt was up around $1.5 trillion in 2018. It’s probably going to be even greater in 2019. We have the biggest annual trade deficit ever in 2018. We’re going to beat that record in 2019. So, we have the twin deficits going off the charts. 

None of that worries (Fed Head Jay) Powell. We have record corporate debt, record individual debt, record student debt, auto debt, credit card debt and none of that concerns Powell.  We have record debt for state governments and municipalities. We have underfunded pensions in both the public and private sector. We also have interest rates rising. They have risen quite a bit from a few years ago, and all of that is an added cost on an over-leveraged economy. 

The reason the Fed did this about face, the reason they are now ‘patient’ and the reason they stopped raising interest rates is all about the United States. It’s all about the enormous debt we have. The Fed inflated a bubble where you had all this debt. It’s impossible to normalize interest rates in this scenario. So, they came up with an excuse to stop, but what the markets still don’t realize is it is not enough. The Fed is ultimately going to go back to 0%. The Fed is not going to shrink its balance sheet. They are going to blow it up bigger than it was before they started to shrink it. There is no way to stop the recession and no way to stop the bear market. They are going to have to go back to the QE, but I don’t think the Fed is going to succeed in blowing a bigger bubble.”

Schiff goes on to say, “I think when they start to try to reflate the assets in stocks, real estate and in bonds, they are just going to prick the dollar bubble, and that’s when we have a real crisis. . . . The dollar is going to collapse, and America’s days of living beyond its means is going to come to an end.”

On gold, Schiff says, “I think this is the calm before the storm. People don’t really perceive it. Maybe it’s like the Wile E. Coyote who has just run off a cliff, and he just hasn’t looked down yet. He doesn’t realize where he’s standing. Gold shorts are going to lose an incredible amount of money. That’s probably one of the most foolish things you can do. There are a lot of great things out there to short. Gold is the last thing you should be shorting. For central banks, gold is the safest reserve asset. It’s the only asset that is not somebody else’s liability. I think the world is going back to gold, $5,000, $10,000 (per ounce), who knows how high it’s going to go. There is no real ceiling on the price of gold because there is no floor to the value of the dollar and other fiat currency. Gold is going to skyrocket.”

And silver? Schiff says, “Look at last time. Silver went up to $50 per ounce from $3 to $4 an ounce in 2000-2001. Gold went to $1,900 per ounce, but silver went to $50 per ounce. It was a much bigger percentage gain. If I am right about gold going to $5,000 to $10,000 (per ounce), I am sure the percentage gain in silver will be even bigger.”

Estos son los más de 600 juegos disponibles ya en PSNow en España#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Ha tardado más de lo deseado, pero PlayStation Now ya se puede disfrutar en España y lo único que necesitas para acceder al catálogo de más de 600 juegos (según la web oficial) son tres cosas: disponer de una PS4 o un PC, una conexión de internet y -lógicamente- al menos un mando.

Un servicio que significa acceso a una enorme colección instantánea de juegos, pero también la supondrá la puerta de entrada de títulos esenciales de PS2, PS3 (como Red Dead Redemption) y PS4 a los sistemas en los que es compatible. Por no hablar del hito de jugar a Bloodborne o The Last of Us en PC.

No está de mas recordar que PS Now da la opción de descargar los videojuegos de PS4 y PS2 directamente a la consola PS4 para poder jugar sin conexión y a la resolución nativa de cada título.

Dicho lo anterior, la pregunta es obvia: ¿a qué juegos tendré acceso por lo que cuesta una mensualidad? Bueno, está la opción de activar los siete días de prueba gratuita del servicio, aunque estamos seguros de el siguiente listado es mucho más práctico, sencillo y está ordenado por consola y alfabéticamente:

          Latas de refrigerante entregam alguns spoilers de Vingadores: Ultimato      Cache   Translate Page      

Os leitores que não têm medo da palavra “spoiler” estão acostumados a ver brinquedos e outras peças de merchandising entregando alguns pontos ou segredos dos filmes que ainda vão sair.

Dessa vez, tivemos algumas pistas de Vingadores: Ultimato vindas de latas de refrigerante. Não é grande coisa, mas confirma alguns dos boatos que já vinham circulando sobre o enredo do longa. Muito bem, vamos às imagens:

 MCU Cosmic/Reprodução

De cara, temos Homem de Ferro, Capitão América, Thor, Hulk, Viúva Negra, Gavião Arqueiro e Capitã Marvel. Os spoilers estão nos detalhes: Steve Rogers está sem barba e usando o traje do Capitão América — ou seja, não será mais o Nômade e volta a vestir as listras e estrelas. Bruce Banner voltará a ser o Hulk, como era esperado.

Gavião Arqueiro está de volta e a Viúva Negra está com o cabelo ruivo novamente, o que pode significar uma viagem no tempo, já que em Guerra Infinita ela estava loira (ou ela simplesmente pintou as madeixas).

Uma outra foto das latas da Coca-Cola, feita aqui no Brasil, ainda mostra o vilão Thanos em sua armadura, o Homem-Formiga e o Rocket Racoon:

Vingadores: Ultimato tem estreia marcada para o dia 25 de abril no Brasil. O filme é dirigido por Anthony e Joe Russo, mais uma vez, e reúne boa parte do elenco dos filmes do Universo Cinematográfico da Marvel.


          Back To Normal      Cache   Translate Page      
After writing the title to this post, I chuckled. "Normal" -- few people would describe me as that. What 60-year old man wears makeup, women's clothing and has a fashion-blog? Well... me. And the fact that you accept me is all that matters.

Anyway, the notion of returning to normalcy is a subject I haven't mentioned on social media because it concerns a private matter. But it's just you and me here, right?

Three weeks ago I had serious surgery. In a hospital with general anesthesia. I won't go into details but, as Hedwig sings, to walk away I had to leave a part of myself behind.

Recovery from the surgery was painful and hard. I had to summon up all the sisu I possess and the experience altered my perception. Now, more than ever, I cherish what I have. The precious gift of life will end all too soon, as I realized with sage clarity when facing mortality.

During this period I vowed that when I recovered, I would savor two of my greatest joys -- riding my motorcycle and wearing a pretty dress. Being able to do those things signals a return to normal life for me. During recovery, those joys seemed beyond my reach and I wasn't sure I'd get them back. But I have.

Yesterday, I unveiled my sport-bike from the Batcave and took her out. I'd forgotten how viscerally exciting riding is when you have a powerful machine and honed skills. I twisted the throttle hard, smiled when the engine roared and blasted off on my rocket-ship. The bike carved curves like a sharp knife moving through butter. My entire body vibrated with vivacity.

Today, I'm returning to my second joy. I found this fancy dress in a thrift-store for $3. Three dollars! How could I not buy it? It reminds me of the Eighties. What do you think?

Welcome to my world. Thank you for visiting.

          “被隐身”的女科学家:顶起了科研的半边天,却被藏在历史的脚注里      Cache   Translate Page      

有这样一些女性,她们帮助创造了历史,却成为了科学史上的脚注。

我们都知道,在科研工作中,重要的贡献一般都会白纸黑字地落实在印刷品上,位于科研论文扉页的“作者署名”有助于提升科研工作者的名誉和职业生涯,而隐藏在“致谢”部分的贡献显然没有这样的效果。

一项专注于研究过去20年中遗传学论文 “致谢”部分的新研究发现,社会并没有给予女性科研工作者应有的承认和肯定。

女科学家.jpg

过去几年中,布朗大学的艾米莉亚·胡埃塔-桑切斯(Emilia Huerta-Sánchez)和旧金山州立大学的罗瑞·罗尔夫斯(Rori Rohlfs)组成的团队在研究中发现,有十几名女性程序员在遗传学研究中贡献卓著,其中有几人在多篇论文的“致谢”部分被反复提及,但可惜的是,她们从未被列为论文作者。

科学史上的“无名女英雄”们

这项研究来自于2016年的电影《隐藏人物》(Hidden Figures)的触动。这部电影讲述的是,在上世纪60年代的太空竞赛中,3名黑人女数学家如何协助美国航天局的故事。

在看过电影之后,胡埃塔-桑切斯和罗尔夫斯惊讶地发现,从来没有听过3位主人公的名字。于是她们思考起了一个问题:历史上还有多少做出了杰出贡献却不为人知的女性科学家?

一个名字很快跳到了脑海中:詹妮弗·史密斯(Jennifer Smith)。

胡埃塔-桑切斯记得,自己曾经读过一篇几十年前的经典论文,论文的致谢部分这样写道:感谢史密斯的“熟练编程,以及她负责的所有计算工作。”

这句话读起来感觉就是……怪怪的。

在今天,编程被视作科研工作中至关重要的一环,如果某位科学家负责了某项研究的编程工作,那么ta应该是有论文署名权的。

“我觉得很奇怪,史密斯居然不是那篇论文的作者,” 胡埃塔-桑切斯说,“(罗瑞和我)决定看看是不是还会有像她一样的女科学家。”

于是两人招募了5名学生,查阅了1970年至1990年间出版的所有《理论群体生物学》(Theoretical Population Biology)杂志。这支团队仔细阅读了近900篇论文,将致谢部分的每一个名字都挑出来,研究这个人是否负责了编程工作;如果可能,还对性别进行了验证。

罗切尔·雷耶斯(Rochelle Reyes)是参与这项工作的学生之一。从小听着罗莎琳德·富兰克林(Rosalind Franklin,解密DNA结构的关键人物)和海里埃塔·拉克丝(Henrietta Lacks,她的细胞推动了医药研究的变革)等“无名女英雄”故事长大的她表示,“非常有动力”参加这项研究,“我感觉自己很幸运,能成长在一个鼓励科研热情和社会公正的多元化的大环境下。”

雷耶斯和同事发现,上世纪70年代,在被致谢的程序员中,女性占到了59%,但仅有7%的人被列为正式作者。那十年正是人口遗传学研究的关键十年,为许多现代研究奠定了基础。

“从那个时代的作者署名来看,只有少数独立科学家参与了该领域的研究,这些科学家几乎都是男性,”这支研究团队这样写道。

然而事实并非如此。

女科学家2.jpg

研究团队成员

“很难知道过去的幕后工作者到底做出了多少贡献,”瑞典隆德大学遗传学者杰西卡·阿尔伯特(Jessica Abbott)说。不过,上述研究表明,“如果你能创造性地进行思考,获得正确的数据也是可能的。”

比如,玛格丽特·吴(Margaret Wu)出现在1975年一篇论文的致谢部分,因为她“协助了数字工作,特别是表格1的计算”。而事实上,她参与设计了一种数据工具,在估算某个特定规模种群的遗传学多样性时,这个工具至今仍在被胡埃塔-桑切斯这样的科学家频繁使用。

这个名为“沃特森估值法”的工具命名来源于1975年发表的一篇论文,该论文的唯一作者是G·A·沃特森(G. A. Watterson),迄今已被引用3400多次。

怀疑论者可能会说,对这些旧论文有所贡献的程序员只不过是做了一些基础性的工作,并没有到可以拥有署名权的程度。罗尔夫斯不同意这样的观点,尤其是在上述例子中,玛格丽特·吴、詹妮弗·史密斯和芭芭拉·麦坎(Barbara McCann)的名字在许多论文中反复出现。“正因为她们做的工作质量很高,才会一次又一次地被提及,”她这样表示。

研究团队甚至还和史密斯在爱丁堡大学的前主管威廉姆·希尔(William Hill)取得了联系。希尔对史密斯的评价是:她的工作既有技术性,又富有创意。不过可惜的是,他并不清楚史密斯后来去了哪里,研究团队后来也没有联系上她。

不过在研究玛格丽特·吴时,团队的运气还不错。在多次邮件和致电之后,吴终于回应了。

吴告诉研究团队,在沃特森估值法那篇论文的工作期间,她担任研究助理,并在那个时候自学了编程。“我想,那个时候人们的观念是,女性只不过是秘书而已,输入编码、打打卡,并不会做一些智力性的工作,” 胡埃塔-桑切斯说,“但是(吴)在描述她所做的工作时,我们意识到,就是现在的研究生和博士生在做的事情。”

吴后来没有考虑申请博士后,不过她对研究团队表示,“如果当时有人建议她那样做,她可能会觉得这个主意挺吸引人的。”在作为统计学家和数学老师20多年后,她最终在自己40多岁的时候获得了博士学位。现在,吴是墨尔本大学的一名教职员工,她开发了一套分析教育数据的统计方法。

胡埃塔-桑切斯说,对于1975年的那篇论文,吴显然是抱有一些遗憾的。她甚至都不知道那篇论文后来被很多次引用。“(当时)她笑了,” 胡埃塔-桑切斯回忆说,“轻轻地笑了一声。我感觉自己比她更尴尬。”

重新思考:学术成功的衡量标准

上世纪80年代,将程序员的贡献轻描淡写在“致谢”里的做法开始被摒弃。部分原因是,这部分的工作逐渐移被交给研究生来做,而且她们可以获得署名权。另外一个原因则是,“编程”从原来由低收入女性来操作的“粉领”(pink collar)工作,演变成了一个由男性主导的专业领域。

“对我们来说,这是一个重新思考署名权和学术成功其它衡量标准的机会,”罗尔夫斯说。

即便是在今天,一个人要做多少工作才能获得署名权,依然没有清晰的标准。一位教授用电子邮件的方式向同事发送了一些数据,然后成为了作者之一;一位实验室技术员做了大量奠定试验成功基调的工作,但ta的贡献却可能被忽视。“看看我们身边的实验室技术人员,就能发现不少女性和有色人种虽然做了创意性工作,却没有被赋予署名权,” 罗尔夫斯说道。

即便女性真正成为了作者,现代科学圈里盛行的系统性偏见也可能对她们不利。

首先,女性科学工作者的数量不及男性。最近的一项研究发现,如果按照现在的发展速度,科学圈中女性作者数量要赶上男性,还需要16年的时间——如果是在物理学领域,则仍需要258年时间。这种性别差异在高端学术杂志上尤其显著:女性为第一作者的论文比例仅在25%~35%之间。而且,女性为第一作者的论文被引用次数少于男性为第一作者的论文——这至少在某些领域是真实的情形。

专业培训机会不够、薪水较低、发声机会少、负面典型多,外加被性骚扰的几率更高……种种原因让许多女性早早离开了科研领域。选择继续留在这个领域的女性,在和与自己能力相当的男性同事相比较时,会被以更严苛的眼光看待。甚至还有些女性,她们干脆就直接被遗忘了。

好在,现在有越来越多的人意识到了这些问题。最近也有若干畅销书向世人重现了科学、技术、工程、数学等领域中“无名女英雄们”的故事。除了上文提到的电影《隐藏人物》的原著(玛戈特·谢特利<Margot Shetterly>著)外,还有:《火箭女孩的崛起》(Rise of the Rocket Girls,娜塔莉亚·霍特<Nathalia Holt>著,同样描写了NASA历史上的数学精英)、《宽带》(Broad Band,克莱尔·L·伊万斯<Claire L. Evans>著,讲述了帮助创建互联网的幕后女性的故事)、《代码女孩》(Code Girl,丽扎·蒙迪<Liza Mundy>著,关于二战期间破译德军和日军密码的女英雄们)。

罗尔夫斯希望,其它一些领域的科学家也可以做些类似的工作,去重新发现长久以来贡献被埋没的科研工作者。

“一直以来,女性在科学界都是具有影响力的,只不过她们的成就未被给予应有的认可,”参加上述研究项目的学生之一伊其基尔·洛佩兹(Ezequiel Lopez)说,“而这一点是可以改变的。”

After printing the rocket I drilled 9mm holes to rocket's bottom so I was able to insert and glue 2 of 8x3mm round magnets inside. after all that was done I used various sandpapers, spray filler and white spray to hide all the magnets and layers. Next, I've glued magnets with matching pole of magnets on the rocket to exhaust with superglue. I tested all the electronics and code on breadboard and after that was done, I soldered everything on piece of prototyping perfboard. I set up the battery pack with cheap modules that provided charge protect and boost functions and after testing everything together I noticed that the step-up module was making some quiet, weird sound. I tied adding a 100uF 50v capacitor to its output and the noise magically disappeared.
Now I have a very good looking model of Falcon Heavy rocket lighting my room at night.

          Oscar winners unite: Elton John welcomes Rami Malek to his farewell tour      Cache   Translate Page      

Rami Malek in "Bohemian Rhapsody" - 20th Century Fox(NEW YORK) -- During his lifetime, iconic Queen singer Freddie Mercury was friendly with Elton John.  Now Elton has posted photographic proof that he approves of Rami Malek's Oscar-winning portrayal of Mercury in the movie Bohemian Rhapsody.

In the photo, Elton poses backstage with Malek and his girlfriend Lucy Boynton, who played Mercury's one-time fiancee Mary Austin in the film.

"Thank-you @ramimalek and @lucyboynton1 for coming to my Brooklyn show," Elton captioned the photo. "Rami has set the world on fire with his Oscar winning portrayal of my old friend Freddie Mercury in the hit film @bohemianrhapsodymovie." John played at Barclays Center in Brooklyn, New York, this past Friday and Saturday.

Elton is also an Oscar winner, having taken home the Academy Award for Best Original Song in 1995 for "Can You Feel the Love Tonight" from The Lion King.

Meanwhile, Elton's own biopic, Rocketman, arrives in theaters this May.  Of note, back in the '70s, both Elton and Queen were managed by the same guy, John Reid.  In Bohemian Rhapsody, Reid is portrayed by Game of Thrones actor Aidan Gillen.  In Rocketman, he is portrayed by another Game of Thrones actor, Richard Madden.

          Doncic se «castiga» tras uno de sus peores partidos      Cache   Translate Page      
Acostumbrados a las exhibiciones de talento de Luka Doncic desde su desembarco en la NBA, el esloveno sorprendió esta noche con una mala actuación en el choque entre su equipo y los San Antonio Spurs. Lastrado por sus problemas en la rodilla, que tenían en vilo a sus aficionados desde el final del anterior partido de los Mavericks, firmó unos números bastante discretos. Doncic convirtió solo 5 de 18 tiros de campo (27% de acierto), sumó uno de siete desde la línea de tres (14%) y un pobre uno de nueve desde el tiro libre (11%), malas cifras a las que se añadieron nueve pérdidas. «No puedo culpar a la rodilla. Honestamente, no estaba al 100% pero quería jugar. Siempre quiero jugar», se explicó tras el partido. «No será mi última noche así. Se que las noches como esta van a venir, así que solo tengo que mantener mi rutina», añadió. Lo más curioso es que tras su mal partido el joven esloveno decidió volver a la pista para trabajar el tiro, como desveló el periodista de la ESPN Mike Peasley (ESPN), con una foto de su «autocastigo» en el American Airlines Center. Luka extra FT’s pic.twitter.com/fVQKyu7nYs— Mike Peasley (@PeasESPN) 13 de marzo de 2019Durante el partido el escolta DeMar DeRozan encestó 33 puntos para los Spurs de San Antonio, que consiguieron su sexto triunfo consecutivo al vencer por 105-112 a los Mavericks. En el duelo tejano los Spurs (39-29), con seis victorias seguidas y siete en los últimos 10 partidos, ascendieron al sexto puesto en la Conferencia Oeste, después de que los Clippers de Los Ángeles perdieran en su campo del Staples Center por 104-125. El ala-pívot LaMarcus Aldridge aportó 28 puntos y el base Derrick White encestó 23 tantos para convertirse en factor sorpresa ganador de los Spurs tras superar en el duelo al alero novato, el esloveno Luka Doncic. Los Mavericks (27-40) llegaron a seis derrotas seguidas y son penúltimos en la Conferencia Oeste, superando sólo a los Suns de Phoenix, previamente eliminados de unos playoffs para los que el equipo de Dallas tampoco tiene ya posibilidades reales y solo le quedan las matemáticas. El base novato Jalen Brunson volvió a confirmar su gran momento de juego y surgió como el líder encestador de los Mavericks al aportar 34 puntos con 12 de 16 tiros de campo, incluidos 3 de 6 triples y estuvo perfecto (7-7) desde la línea de personal, además de capturar cinco rebotes y repartir cuatro asistencias. El ala-pívot, Dwight Powell agregó 20 puntos y Doncic no pudo con la defensa de los Spurs sin que al final pudiese ser el factor ganador de los Mavericks. El favorito a ganar el premio de Novato del Año disputó 34 minutos como titular a pesar de que salió al campo con problemas en la rodilla derecha, que se lesionó durante el partido que el pasado domingo jugaron los Mavericks frente a los Rockets de Houston y que perdieron también de locales por 93-94. Doncic no anotó hasta el último minuto de la primera mitad del partido y acabó con nueve pérdidas de balón, que empató su peor marca en esa faceta del juego en lo que va de temporada.

Color Forecasting Report for Vivienne Westwood 2010 A/W Collection

I found that in the recent years, Vivienne Westwood collection's theme were conceringing about the environment issue , like the gobal warming. We can see this trend from the 2008A/W , 2009 S/S and 2009 A/W :

Vivienne Westwood 2008 A/W Collection :





As Vivienne Westwood cares about the problem of global warming, she imagine a society of jungle-dwelling eco-warriors. The clothes that resulted are the warriors' uniform.

The pattern on the clothing are some flowers, snakes and butterflies.

The low value color show the urban jungle as we lives while the hign value colors show the natural environment

Color Scheme: mono-chromatic(black, violet and red violet) and analogus (yellow, green and blue)

The theme is 'Do it yourself'Vivienne do this show because she was inspired by the rainforest.

she want to save the rainforest and encourage us not to consume, that is "less consume, but do it yourself".

Color scheme: mono-chromatic (green, yellow green and yellow) and complmentary(red+green and violet+yellow green)



Vivienne Westwood 2009 A/W Collection :






Vivienne Westwood want to arouse our awareness about the envrionment issue in her collection "+5°," the meaning of "+5°" is that 5 degrees are counted to rise as CO2 levels skyrocket.

Color Forecasting for Vivienne Westwood 2010 A/W Collection

With the trend of the recent collections, I thinkthe theme of the 2010 A/W Collection , Vivienne Westwood will still concerning about the environment issue.

Therefore , I forecast that some colors of natural will be used in the 2010 A/W Collection , such as Green , Blue , Yellow and red. As I founf that Blue and Yellow were the key color of the 2009 S/S and A/W key color respectively , so I forecast Vivienne Westwood will use Green as the key color of the 2010 A/W Collection .

In the aspect of the color scheme , I found that Vivienne Westwood love using Mono-chromatic , Analogus and split complmentary Color scheme, Thus, I forecast Vivienne Westwood will use these there color scheme in the collection.
As I forcast that Vivienne Westwood may use Green as the key color in the collection, so I think Green color will be used for the Mono-chromatic color scheme.
For the analohous Color Scheme , I forcast Vivienne Westwood will use Red& Orange ; Blue & Green.
For the split complmentary Color scheme, I forecast Yellow,orange and blue will be used.

Besides, I found that Vivienne Westwood used the Achromatic Color Scheme, which is Blacks, Whites & Grays , in nearly all her collections. Therefore I forecast the Achromatic Color Scheme will still be stayed.

Moreover, I forecast Vivienne Westwood will use color in High Value in the period of the financial tsunami , since in my point of view, high valu colors mean strong and tough. Therefore I forcast Vivienne Weatwood may want people after wearing her designs will be more tough and stronger to overcome the financial difficulty.
The above is my Color Forecasting of the Vivienne Westwood 2010 A/W Collection.

          Wix vs. Weebly vs. Squarespace vs. Wordpress.com      Cache   Translate Page      

I’m a project manager apprentice at Viget working on a pro-bono website strategy project. I dug into four of the most common website building tools on the market (Wix, Squarespace, Weebly, and Wordpress.com), so that I could recommend one to our client. Here’s what I found.

First, some necessary background: Behind every website is a Content Management System, or CMS. The CMS directs the show, dictating what the content is and how it is displayed and linked. Viget builds custom CMSs for large, complex websites like the Wildlife Conservation Society. For projects where an off-the-shelf CMS makes more sense, we love Craft.

But that’s not what this article is about. Sometimes, what you need is minimal code-required, low-maintenance, and super low-budget. These days, tools exist that allow anybody to build and launch a website.

Wix, Squarespace, Weebly, and Wordpress.com are website hosting platforms.

That’s a fancy way of saying that each company provides an all-in-one stop for website building and hosting. Here’s an analogy that really spoke to me:

The difference between building a website on a website hosting platform and building a conventional website is like the difference between renting an apartment and owning a home. (Source)

When you own a home, you could tear down a wall or build a nice porch, but you’re also on the hook for all maintenance and upgrades. Wix, Weebly, Squarespace, and Wordpress.com all offer the convenience of renting from a diligent landlord, but you have less control over how your site looks and functions.

So, you’ve decided to “rent” for the convenience. Now you get to choose your landlord. I polled Viget’s designers and front end developers to see if anyone had experience using any of the four platforms. I had a hunch someone might have some feelings to share.

Now, this sort of work isn’t really Viget’s “thing.” Viget generally takes on much larger digital projects that let them better customize solutions for clients. But I did pick up a few insights from the Viget staff:

  • Squarespace elicited strong responses: from “love it” to “super-confusing.”
  • There was also some confusion about Wordpress.org and Wordpress.com. Here’s the gist: Wordpress.com and Wordpress.org are not the same! WordPress.com is a hosted website platform (ie renting an apartment) while WordPress.org is a self-hosted platform(ie buying a house).
  • Weebly was the least-popular. From my research, some sensed that Wix and Weebly are really similar, but I found out that’s not the case.

Control vs. Convenience

Choosing a website building tool is a bit of a balancing act, with control on one side and convenience on the other. The more design flexibility and control the CMS allows, the more time and thought you have to put into keeping your website looking great.


Here’s the breakdown:

Wix

On the control side of the equation, Wix Editor is the designer’s dream website builder. Like the others, it provides a ton of templates to start from. Unlike the others, it allows the option to start from a blank slate AND gives you unlimited drag and drop customization everywhere on your site. This is awesome news if you have a specific design in mind that you want to bring to life quickly.

Wix Editor is powerful and intuitive. It gives you a ton of control over how your website looks.

On the other hand, this flexibility could be a nightmare for sites with a lot of content or sites managed by people without an eye for detail or design. It’ll take more effort to make each page look consistent if that’s what you’re going for. Also, Wix limits your storage limit more than the other options and doesn’t allow more than 2 sub-levels of navigation.

For people more concerned with convenience than design flexibility, Wix has a feature called Wix ADI (artificial design intelligence.) This tool pulls information from your social media presence, even going so far as to recommend a color palette for your site based on your current logo or key photos.

One important note: If you want to access the drag and drop design tools, you can switch from Wix ADI to Wix Editor but you CAN NOT bring changes you make in Editor back to ADI.

Squarespace

Squarespace templates look beautiful, modern, and generally slick out-of-the-box. Squarespace could be a great choice if you don’t have to do anything more complicated than the template. One consideration to keep in mind: Squarespace has a less robust plugin library than any of the other three options. So if you plan to scale your site eventually, or add additional functionality, Squarespace might not be for you.

To add a content block in Squarespace, you click the place where you want the content to go, and then select from the types above.

Weebly

Weebly is a very simple website builder, but it has more options for functionality than Squarespace. It’s different from Wix Editor because it doesn’t allow unlimited drag and drop customization: you’re confined to a grid layout. The benefit of this is that, because all of Weebly’s templates are responsive and mobile friendly, your site is always going to be laid out in a way that looks good across devices. You trade design freedom for the convenience of not having to worry about designing for responsiveness.

Weebly was recently acquired by Square, a payment processing company. It offers strong e-commerce options, and will probably continue to develop in that area.

This is the first screen you see after signing up to build a Weebly site.

Weebly is a solid choice for hosting an online store, and for people who don’t have a need to control the design. The templates look good, but you can’t change ‘em much without getting into CSS/html land. (Weebly does give you access to the template code and allows html injections on individual pages, which is cool.)

WordPress.com

Wordpress.com does not offer a free trial, so I haven’t been able to play around on the back end. WordPress (both .org and .com) offers a more abstract website editing experience. Editing in Wix, Weebly, and Squarespace looks and feels like editing the live site. WordPress’s editor is organized differently. You’ll learn terminology including “attributes” and “media.” It’s not rocket science by any means, but the learning curve may be a little steeper to a newbie.

WordPress CMS is more abstract than the other tools.

Wordpress.org is the most popular CMS in the world, so there’s a ton of talent to hire from if you ever need to extend the functionality of your website. It’s more future-proof than the other options, in that way.

One big downside of WordPress.com is that it doesn’t allow key functionality (like implementing Google Analytics, SEO tools, or plugin installs) unless you purchase their most expensive monthly plan. That makes it nearly twice as expensive as comparable plans from the other three tools.


So. Which one should you choose to build your next website?

That depends. Each tool has different strengths and weaknesses. First, ask yourself:

What are you looking for in a website builder?

Answer: The Easiest Option Around

Go with Weebly.

If you want to spend as little time as possible working on your site but still have it look polished, Weebly is your best bet. You could think of it like Facebook: you’re not able to change the layout much, but it’s going to look great across all devices. Weebly is going to be the easiest out-of-the-box option for content-heavy sites.

Honorable mentions in this category are Wix ADI and Squarespace. But my gut says that Wix ADI is so limiting that the temptation to switch over to the more flexible (and less convenient) Wix Editor will win out for most users in the end. I’d choose Weebly over Squarespace for any website that is not a direct match for one of Squarespace’s templates because Weebly offers more scalability (and, arguably, an easier editing experience.)

Answer: Visual Design Freedom.

Go with Wix.

If one of Viget’s awesome designers came to me and asked how to get a high-fidelity design onto the web stat, I would definitely recommend Wix Editor. It has a very intuitive and flexible drag and drop editor, which makes it great for people with an eye for design.

The downside to this level of flexibility is that Wix allows you to make changes that mess up the way the site looks, especially on mobile. Wix offers a dedicated mobile editor (which could be a big plus for some people), but it does mean that building in Wix takes an extra step.

Answer: Accessibility tools.

Go with Wix.

Web accessibility means that websites are designed and developed so that people with disabilities can use them. At Viget, we really care about accessibility. Wix is clear a standout among hosted website platforms. It offers a great set of tools to make your website accessible to all.

Answer: I fell in love with a Squarespace template AND have a simple site.

Go with Squarespace.

If you’re in love, you’re in love. Squarespace sites look great out of the box. If your vision matches one of the templates, Squarespace is a great choice. As with any tool, you should look into their integrations to make sure they accommodate any additional functionality you require.

Answer: I fell in love with WordPress but don’t want to deal with site maintenance.

Go with WordPress.com.

WordPress.com is generally more expensive than the other three because its lower-cost options don’t have Google Analytics integration or SEO tools. If you’re already comfortable with WordPress but don’t want to self-host, the cost might be worth it.

Answer: I need more control.

If you’re looking for a heavier-hitting CMS, check out Megan’s comparison of Wordpress (.org), Craft, Drupal, and Shopify.

In conclusion:

Whether you’re looking to build your first website or to give a recommendation to your favorite neighbor, I hope this article was helpful to you.

If you’re still not sure which is the best option for your website, check out some of these other reviews or, better yet, try them out for yourself!

          GOLDMAN SACHS: There's a big misconception surrounding the impact of Trump's tax cuts      Cache   Translate Page      

trump tax reform

  • A Goldman Sachs analysis out last week suggests there are misconceptions around the impact of President Donald Trump's tax cuts.
  • Many on Wall Street and Capitol Hill have said the tax cuts are being spent on corporate stock buybacks and not capital expenditures.
  • Stock buybacks have been under attack on Capitol Hill, with some arguing companies should provide better benefits before repurchasing shares.
  • But a Goldman Sachs report found that US companies have sharply increased their cash outlays in growth investments after the tax reform.

President Donald Trump signed a sweeping tax-overhaul bill into law in late 2017, offering big tax rebates to corporate America in order to stimulate economic growth. Yet, American companies plowed billions of dollars into buybacks, causing some Washington lawmakers to worry that US businesses spent the gains merely on share repurchases rather than reinvestment in their core businesses.

Goldman Sachs released a report last week pushing back against that conclusion, saying that while stock buybacks did increase, so too did investments in growth.

Growth investments, which include capital expenditures as well as R&D spending, have accounted for the "largest share of US corporate cash outlays every year since at least 1990," and that conflicts with "the popular belief advanced by some politicians that buybacks dominate corporate spending," Goldman Sachs strategists led by David Kostin wrote.

The report comes just days after Washington lawmakers refreshed their political furor against stock buybacks. A number of lawmakers, including Republican Sen. Marco Rubio and Democratic Sen. Chris van Hollen, recently indicated they may propose legislation to curb buyback incentives, worried that US corporations have been using the proceeds from Trump's tax cuts to boost their share prices rather than investing them in growth-producing projects. 

And earlier this year, Democratic Sens. Chuck Schumer and Bernie Sanders published an opinion piece in the New York Times, in which they blamed the buybacks for creating "the worst level of income inequality in decades" and said they would introduce a bill prohibiting a company from repurchasing its shares unless it pays a $15 minimum wage, provides "seven days of paid sick," and offers decent pensions and health benefits. 

Stock buybacks did boom after the Congress passed the sweeping tax overhaul in late 2017, posting a 52% jump last year to $819 billion for S&P companies. The figure, according to Goldman, will grow to $940 billion in 2019.

However, the staggering increase in stock buybacks didn't crowd out other corporate spending, the bank said. And while American companies plowed hundreds of billions of dollars into buybacks, they have also made sizable capital investments intended to grow their businesses.

Growth investment surged by 13% last year to $1.1 trillion. That trend is expected to continue in 2019, with Goldman estimating that growth investments will increase to $1.2 trillion, or 38% of the total cash outlays by S&P companies. 

Another long-held belief the report pushed back against is that corporate executives are motivated to allocate more funds to repurchase outstanding shares from investors because of the way they are compensated. 

"One of the greatest misconceptions in the public discourse surrounding corporate buybacks is the belief that managements repurchase stock in an attempt to inflate earnings per share (EPS) and meet incentive compensation targets," Goldman argued.

"Contrary to popular belief, executives whose compensation depends on EPS did not allocate a greater proportion of total cash spending to buybacks in 2018 than companies where management pay was not linked to EPS."

The 247 firms in the S&P 500 Index with EPS-linked incentive pay plans spent 28% of their total cash outlays on share repurchases last year, while the other firms that don't link payoffs to EPS performance allocated 32% on buybacks, the bank found.

          Date #9: Four or Five Abreast      Cache   Translate Page      

This date was one I had been looking forward to; I had been emailing back and forth with this guy for a couple of months and he seemed cool, aka, his world view was similar to mine. Unfortunately, since my dates with Seven, I had started to feel conflicted about the whole dating thing. While I have no problem having sex with multiple people whom I do not like in any significant way, dating several people I do like is a whole different matter. I think I am old fashioned in this way; I simply don’t have it in me to like more than one person at a time. We were to meet at Powell’s downtown and walk around the Pearl District, looking at galleries and other oddities. We were especially looking forward to going to the Mark Woolley Gallery, as, after fifteen years, it was set to close down at the end of the month.

It was a beautiful Saturday; sunny, warm, really perfect. I made my way downtown from my apartment on the edge of Gresham; it was a great ride. Then I reached the Hawthorne Bridge. I love this bridge; not my favorite bridge in Portland, that honor goes to the St. John’s, but it is in my top three, and I always look forward to crossing it on my bike. When I got there, the lights were flashing, indicating the bridge was up, so, while I could have taken an alternative bridge down the road, I decided it was worth it to wait. As I rode up the east side and over the Esplanade, I noticed the bridge was lowering again and would be open to traffic in moments. I was behind a person on a recumbent and a guy riding a bike with another bike attached to it on his left side and a cart with tools hanging out of it attached on his right. As we started to cross the bridge, I noticed a throng of people walking towards us, four or five abreast, from the other side of the bridge, many with matching shirts that either said “Team OHSU” or some crap about heart health; yet another weekend in Portland where some charity is having a walk to raise money. Perfect. Unfortunately, they did not seem to be aware of the fact that the bridge is very clearly divided into a walking lane and a bike lane. This made travel almost impossible, as most of them were not seeing us, and of course, the recumbent rider was in front, and not in the health-walkers field of vision. As we inched forward on our bikes we received glares and sometimes nasty comments from these charity health walkers. Evidently, it was okay to walk for charity and heart health, but not at all okay to commute on one’s bike in the bike lane. The funny thing was that the tools in the guy’s cart in front of me kept hitting people in the ribs and arms, and in one case, a child’s head. Yes, that is right; it was funny, as most of them had faces on them indicating that we were the unclean, right up until they got smacked by the steel bar in the ribs. As we were nearing the other end of the bridge, an older man came up to the guy in front of me and started reading him the riot act about his bike and how he was in the way, etc. When the bike guy told him there were two lanes, one reserved for bikes, the guy looked at him like he had just fabricated some story about his dog and his homework. This was when the bike guy pulled out his cell phone and started motioning to me and the pavement and the guy, basically telling him to get out of his face and keep looking down, as he was sure to see the very clearly marked “bike lane” words and symbol a few feet further down. I love people; we have no awareness of the hypocrisies inherent in our behavior; yes, let’s help these poor people with heart problems, find a cure for heart disease, go Team OHSU, while simultaneously pissing all over the people riding their bikes across the bridge because they are in the way. I guess you can always find an “us” and “them” in any given situation.
After the craziness of the bridge, riding through downtown Portland to Powell’s was a serene journey, floating through streets lined with recently emptied storefronts and contemporary building projects made mostly of glass. As I arrived I noticed that my date, Hugh, was not yet there. I scoped out a place to lock up my bike and started changing into my Doc’s from my biking shoes. I looked up and he was there, wearing a bright green retro helmet and riding a bright green retro bike. What made his bike retro? It had a kick stand. He had also just been riding through the hoards on the Hawthorne Bridge and commented that he was surprised he was still on time. Hugh was lanky with strawberry blonde hair and an air of confidence that bordered on cocky. He seemed to feel no awkwardness at all around me, even when we first met, which was a bit odd to me, as we were a Craigslist fix.

After we locked up our bikes we headed off into the Pearl District. Just ten years previous this small area had been a sketchy part of town, but had recently blossomed into the place where all the young up-and-comers lived the lives they had always dreamed of. We had not planned out our journey, so I just led us around, going to the places I had remembered there being galleries. Unfortunately, not much of what I used to know remained. It was very depressing. Finally, we went to PNCA, where there was a Font show, or rather, a show which consisted of large posters of different kinds of fonts, supposedly describing the styles of various artists. There were also posters on the walls with random common phrases, one in particular which had been so popular in the previous year’s election:
“Any society that would give up a little liberty to gain a little security will deserve neither and lose both”
This of course is the famous quote by Ben Franklin, which more likely referred to the Bush Administration’s failed agenda and the ability of the masses to continue to embrace it. In general I have a hard time with words in art or words as art. I feel the same way about the use of images laden with symbolic meaning such as apples, hearts, or the flavor or the moment, black birds. This type of art does not demand much from the viewer.
We left the main floor and the main gallery and went upstairs to see the student work hanging on the walls around the perimeter of the mezzanine. They all looked very much like the stuff you would expect to see at an art school; pictures which were not very interesting, but intense with the labor of their maker. Looking at this work exhausted me, as it reminded me of my own time in Art School, so we found a bench and sat down in front of a set of shape contrast studies rendered in pencil.
Hugh was a follower of my blog, and we spoke extensively about it, about number Seven, who I still referred to as such, even to him, and about Hugh’s situation, which I originally thought was complex, but quickly found was more dimensional than I had realized. While I knew that Hugh had a girlfriend with whom he had an open relationship, I was not aware that he also was seeing another woman casually. I thought it was fascinating, as I was struggling with the whole notion of liking two people at once, and here he was, very comfortable with the two people he was dating, and out on a date with a third. He suggested that I was capable of dating multiple people at once; they just had to be the right people. I was skeptical.
We decided to leave PNCA and try to find some other galleries. As we were walking down N.W. 13th, we started to pass by Cargo, and then decided to go in. Cargo is one of those places where you can buy strange items for your home from far off lands for a mere pittance. For the most part, it is run-of-the-mill, until you get to the area where there are statues, paintings, vases, and coasters, all with the likeness of General Mao on them. They were all diplomatically rendered; he looked kind and gentle in every portrait. The best part of this area were the propagandistic pieces, and of these, the most wonderful was a sculpture of a man and a woman in worker attire, carrying tools and riding a rocket ship. I loved this sculpture so much I thought very seriously about taking it home and putting it in a place of honor among my much less communistic collectibles, but alas, as I was on my bike, I really had no place to put it on the ride home, so I had to pass. We looked around a bit more, then went upstairs and found two lounge chairs and sat and talked about music. Years ago, Hugh had started a non-profit he was presently on the board of, and had run for several years. The conversation flowed easily to the types of music that we liked and what we used to like, and by some miracle, he actually liked Heavy Metal. We discussed the fall of Metallica, the eras which we were most familiar with and fond of, Iron Maiden, and of course, my beloved Motorhead. It is so refreshing to meet people with similar interests. At this point, we were both hungry, so we decided to get Sushi. We were both wracking our brains, trying to think of a good Sushi place which did not source its fish from the dreaded Reverend Sun Myung Moon. As we thought, we went into Bullseye gallery, my favorite in Portland. We looked around and then grabbed a walking map of Portland. Soon, Hugh remembered Dragonfish, so we headed off in that direction.
Dragonfish is located in the Paramount Hotel on the corner of Taylor and Park, and faces a giant hole in downtown Portlandwhich has been in the process of being built into a great new building for the last several years. After we sat and ordered, I got my nerve up to ask him more about his girlfriend(s).
It turned out that Hugh’s long term girlfriend, who lives in Bellingham, was into BDSM. At this point in time, I had no idea whatsoever what this acronym stood for. Hugh filled me in that it stands for bondage and discipline, dominance and submission, and sadism and masochism. Hugh’s girlfriend liked to be dominated, and evidently, it was beyond Hugh’s sexual palate to perform these duties for her. This was very good news to me, as I was beginning to think this was going to be a garden variety date. In fact, I was so pleased with this information that I actually raised my fists up and quietly exclaimed “yes!” because this information hit me as so entertaining. He went on to tell me that she in fact was coming into town the very next weekend, not to visit him, but instead to visit the couple who she met regularly to abuse her. Hugh told me he had met them recently at a gathering and commented that “they were delightful people”. This last bit of information set me giggling at the vision of the four of them standing around speaking about the weather, art and music, shortly before getting out ropes, chains and whips in order to beat his girlfriend. I made the comment that I thought it ironic that this was the way he described them, but he told me, on the contrary, it is much better to have nice people beating you, as opposed to assholes, which would make it much less enjoyable. I had to admit he had a point.
Then I asked him about the other woman he was dating. He had met her the previous Halloween at a party. He saw her on average once a week and they were very casual. It was quite the crowd we had sitting there at our table: Hugh and his two girlfriends and me and Number Seven. While Seven and I are not what you would call exclusive, I found it ironic that my feelings for him were keeping me hesitant in regards to dating others, while Hugh and his two girl friends were quite happy keeping it free and easy. It seemed I had a lot to learn about dating in the new millennium.
After we ate, we walked down to Mark Woolley, looked around, and then popped in next door to Augen gallery. Both shows were very good, and of course I had the privilege of hearing Hugh say that he is much less impressed with paintings he believes he could do himself. While I understand why people might ignorantly think this too-often-heard thought, I often wonder why it is that I have to hear it. The reality is that the making of the art is not the thing; it is the showing of the art. The ability to put something on the wall which has your guts in it takes courage and integrity which most people do not possess, and I would posit that these same people would not even make it through their first brush stroke on an empty canvas. Of course, I did not mention this to Hugh, I was not especially offended by the comment, just surprised.
After we left the gallery, we walked to Powell’s where we looked long and hard for a book on orgasms I had seen on Amazon but could not find, so instead I bought a book on Taoist health, sex and longevity which I had owned years prior but had loaned out and never gotten back. After, we went to the North Park Blocks and sat in front of a small play area and watched the kids and the homeless people converge on the swings and jungle gym in the waning afternoon sun. We started to talk about movies, and he suggested we might go to one, but to one at a second run theatre, which Portlandis lousy with, where you can grab a bite and a beer as you watch. At this point I was exhausted, and was becoming increasingly wary of the looming possibility of physical contact with Hugh. I just wasn’t there. So I told him I wanted to hit the road. We walked back and got on our bikes. We rode together back out of town, and coincidently, hit the Hawthornebridge as it was moving back into position after letting a boat through. I was telling him about the route I usually take; up Division to 164th, and both he and some bike rider dude ahead of us lambasted me for taking a less than safe route. They both suggested Clinton street, as it was much more safe, though admittedly slower.
We rode up Clinton streettogether, and at one point he had to remind me to slow down as he was not used to the pace I kept on my bike. He also had the very bad habit of trying to ride next to me instead of in front of or behind me. For some reason it is incredibly irritating to me when people ride side by side in this fashion. I think it has to do with my personal space issues, but I can’t be sure. We stopped where he had to turn off to go to his house. He offered to throw my bike in his car and drive me the rest of the 130 block trip to my home, but I declined, saying I was looking forward to the ride. He got off of his bike, put his kickstand down, came over and gave me a hug, told me he thought I was cool and that he would like to hang out with me again.
As I rode away, I realized I was very happy to finally be alone, riding at my own pace with the ability to go whichever route I chose.

Interview
Michael R. Pompeo
Secretary of State
Hilton Americas-Houston Hotel
Houston, Texas
March 12, 2019


QUESTION: All right. So I just wanted to – well, first of all, thank you for being here today.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Great to be with you.

QUESTION: And I wanted to ask, what is your message to the people who are coming to this very large conference? Obviously, CERAWeek is a big deal. Can you tell me, what is your message to everyone here today?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So it’s great to be in Houston. I came down really to talk about three things: first, the incredible importance of America’s continued energy success to what I do, the task of trying to keep America and Americans safe. Our capacity to deliver energy around the world and to have less demand here, to be less dependent as a nation on others for energy, frees up a lot of capacity for us to do good around the world and to keep America safe.

The second thing I wanted to talk about is recruiting. We’re always looking for talented people. I want to make sure we get out and talk to people all across America, and the State Department is a noble calling. It’s a wonderful task to be an American diplomat. I want to share with people the real opportunities there are to serve America working with the United States Department of State.

QUESTION: Great. And can you talk to me about the energy revolution? And it – had mentioned that the energy revolution and this ability to help us keep America safe. National security – can you talk to me about that lane?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So we will be the world’s largest exporter of crude oil in just a relatively short number of months. That’s an amazing turnaround from a place where we were 10 years ago, where we were consuming product from all around the world and we depended upon the Middle East and other countries to provide us with those energy resources. This shale revolution, the amazing innovation that’s taken place in the United States of America has fundamentally transformed energy markets, not only for crude oil but for natural gas as well, and those have real ramifications for America’s national security.

When I travel, wherever I go – I was in the Philippines last week, and in Vietnam; I’ll be in the Middle East next week, and then on to Europe – everywhere I go, these issues of energy security are out there. Countries would much rather take their energy from a place like the United States, where we value the rule of law, we treat partners well, than to have to rely on Russia or someone else that doesn’t behave that way. That gives me as America’s most senior diplomat real opportunities to develop close partnerships and in turn keep the American people safe.

QUESTION: Thank you. Now turning to foreign affairs, specifically with North Korea. Can you talk with us about you – what is your take on the situation with North Korea, the satellites showing that they’re maybe restarting this long-range rocket facility? And also the situation in Iran, with them potentially working on missiles that are blacklisted. Can you talk to me about what is your take on the situation in North Korea right now?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So we’ve been working at this, since the administration came into office, diligently. We’ve now got missile tests stopped; nuclear testing hasn’t taken place for a while either. We think we can continue to maintain that. Chairman Kim committed to not doing those things when we were in Hanoi. President Trump sat down with Chairman Kim to try and fulfill his commitment to denuclearize. These nuclear weapons present a threat to the world, to our partners of Japan and South Korea in the region, and to the United States. And we’re determined to follow through on the commitments that were made in Singapore. If we can get this right, there will be a brighter future for the people of North Korea and reduce risk all around the world.

We’re mindful of the challenges. We know that it will be a bumpy, long road. This problem’s been out there for quite some time. But we continue to be optimistic that Chairman Kim wants to denuclearize and that he intends to go down that path.

QUESTION: And when you’re seeing certain pieces of what could be evidence of – satellite images and things like that, is there a concern there and how are you addressing that concern if that exists?

SECRETARY POMPEO: So I can’t talk about what we know, American intelligence. We – what I can say is this: There’s still work to do. North Koreans have not fulfilled the commitment that Chairman Kim made yet. They came partway there when the President traveled to Hanoi, but it wasn’t enough. It’s not just enough for America; this is the entire world. The United States has built out a fully global coalition. The resolutions that are putting pressure on North Korea are UN Security Council resolutions, not American sanctions. The whole world understands this threat, and the whole world is urging Chairman Kim to make the right strategic choice to get rid of his nuclear weapons and rejoin the world.

QUESTION: And this comment, does that also apply to the sanctions, the alleged breaking of the sanctions, importing oil and selling weapons and things like that?

SECRETARY POMPEO: It certainly does. These are UN sanctions. Enforcement of those sanctions matters an awful lot. We are urging every country to enforce them as rigidly as they can, and frankly, we’ve done pretty well. There are gaps. When we find gaps, we work to close them.

QUESTION: Okay, great. And the last topic I wanted to talk about is Venezuela. Can you talk to me about the decision to pull out the many American diplomats from the country?

SECRETARY POMPEO: It was really pretty straightforward. Last night, the – we made the decision that we would remove the remaining diplomats that we had on the ground in Caracas, Venezuela. We’ll get them out in the next few days. The situation on the ground is deteriorating. It’s so tragic. The humanitarian conditions there are just awful. You have people starving, can’t get medicine to the sick. The American people have been incredibly generous, a couple hundred metric tons of food and hygiene kits and medicine sitting in Colombia, and the Maduro regime denying us the ability to get them to people who are starving. It’s horrific; it’s evil. Maduro has to leave. The Interim President Juan Guaido is working diligently alongside the Colombians, the Brazilians, the OAS, a group called the Lima Group, to build out a coalition that when this happens, when the Venezuelan peoples’ voices are finally heard and Maduro leaves, we can restore Venezuela to the economic powerhouse that it has the capacity to be and a place where basic human rights are respected.

QUESTION: Okay, and in the interest of using up some time, because I want to make sure I’m using all my five minutes --

SECRETARY POMPEO: Of course.

QUESTION: Would I be able to just ask you about the state of U.S. image in terms of foreign affairs? They’ve described President Trump’s leadership style as somewhat unilateral. Would you say that that is the case, and is that a good or a bad thing for the United States image?

SECRETARY POMPEO: Remember, I’m America’s senior diplomat. Our first client is the American people, and I think President Trump definitely recognizes that. When I travel the world, when I meet with my foreign counterparts, they understand too that we’re doing this alongside them. The coalition that we built out to put pressure on North Korea was worldwide. Today there are 50-plus countries that are recognizing that we’ve got to do something fundamentally different in Venezuela. We built out an 80-plus country coalition to defeat ISIS and take down the caliphate. Those are real partnerships. America led many of those efforts, and we’re very proud of the work we do alongside those other countries, being mindful every day that our task is to keep the American people safe.

QUESTION: Thank you so much for your time today.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you very much.

QUESTION: I really appreciate it.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you.

QUESTION: Thank you. It’s a pleasure to meet you.

SECRETARY POMPEO: Thank you. It was wonderful to meet you, too.

          Documentary 'Apollo 11' Brings the Moon Mission to Life With Lost NASA Footage      Cache   Translate Page      
Whenever I see footage of a rocket launch with a close-up of that sudden, thunderous inferno blasting from its base, I'm filled with wonder. I wonder what somebody could have said to talk a cameraman into getting that shot. Did they draw straws? Was it always the new guy? And this was pre-sunscreen, remember. The takeoff sequence in Todd Douglas Miller's amazingly immersive Apollo 11 easily ranks as movie history's most wondrous. It's preceded, believe it or not, by an equally mind-boggling sight: never-before-viewed video of that Saturn V spacecraft rumbling toward the pad atop a crawler-transport, a quarter-acre platform on tank treads that dwarfs the NASA workers escorting it. It's the closest thing to a giant, monster or god treading the Earth you'll ever see. The things we once imagined and made. Our first sight of Neil Armstrong, Buzz Aldrin and Michael Collins suiting up while clearly thinking pretty deep thoughts backstage at the Kennedy Space Center is indisputably cool, too. To be honest, though, nothing holds a candle to that instant of ignition. If you've never had a front-row seat to the spectacle of five F-1 engines burning 5,700 pounds of kerosene and liquid oxygen per second to push 6,000 tons of steel, wire and human cargo slowly heavenward, you need to see this. And you've never had such a seat. Nobody has. That's because just about all the footage of awesome stuff that took place in the course of the first mission to the moon comes from a trove of miraculously preserved 70mm Panavision film unearthed by accident in the U.S. National Archives. Someone at NASA failed to file it properly way back when, and its existence wasn't discovered until 2017. Talk about found footage. How 100-plus reels of Todd-AO celluloid (the format used in wide-screen Hollywood spectacles like Cleopatra and The Sound of Music) and more than 11,000 hours of un-catalogued mission control recordings happened to land in the filmmaker's lap is a story nearly as remarkable as that of the voyage itself. And nearly as complicated. So I will leave you with a link to it. Unlike that visited by those three astronauts, my space isn't infinite. When Miller began work on the project in 2016, he had none of that priceless material. All he had was a green light from CNN Films to come up with something to commemorate the 50th anniversary of the…

          Alone with Fine Cult - An Interview      Cache   Translate Page      

Luke Woodson é a mente por trás do soturno projeto, Fine Cult.

Navegando por caminhos que nascem no pós punk de caráter sombrio, passando por paisagens gazers, com inserções de um certo psych negro....assim é a viagem a ser desbravada....

O debute aconteceu no ano passado com o primeiro álbum, homônimo e, de lá pra cá, o prolífico projeto já soltou mais dois EPs e u novo single, "I´ll Go Missing".

O Fine Cult é altamente indicado para ser degustado a noite, com fones de ouvido em um volume intenso, afim de que todos os detalhes possam ser devidamente saboreados e absorvidos.

Boa imersão...


***** Interview with Fine Cult *****


Q: When did Fine Cult begin? Tell us about the history...
LW: Fine Cult began posting as such on SoundCloud last summer in 2018, but I was experimenting in 2017 with nothing but an iPhone, GarageBand, and a tiny interface. It wasn't until last year that I was able to pull together all my influences and drive, and churn it into something pleasing to the ear. The start to record was I think a matter of time, technology, and persuasion to get serious about the craft. Also, there's been an incredible amount of personal goings-on over the past three to four years that just drove me to have to express in one way or another.

Q: Who are your influences?
LW: Bands all over the place and time. Lush, Slowdive, St. Etienne stuff, The Cure, Siouxsie, Wire, XTC, but also Kraftwerk, The Pink Dots, Renegade Soundwave, industrial acts as well.

Q: Make a list of 5 albums of all time…
LW: Impossible, but I'll take to the grave:
The Cure's 'Pornography,'
Love & Rockets' 'Express,'
The Tear Garden's 'Tired Eyes Slowly Burning,'
Wire's 'A Bell Is A Cup...,'
and OMD's 'Crush.'

Q: How do you feel playing live?
LW: Funny because I've recently thrown together a relatively decent pedalboard with eight or nine pedals. I have a Vox AC15 and Marshall Origins 50w both taking up space and collecting dust in the apartment. I think what I'm doing is planning ahead for inevitable gig but haven't taken that leap yet. My focus for now is high quality recording, and possible soundtrack work down the road.


Q: How do you describe Fine Cult´s sounds?
LW: The signature Fine Cult tone is a mix of Post-punk beats with almost always a drone of harmonics/reverb/flange guitar at some intensity or another in the background. It reminds me of being inside a jet engine, or in a wind tunnel or wavy beach sounds. I tend to use bass lines as much as a six string guitar to give enough lead to carry songs forward. My goal with Fine Cult is not to force anything down the listener's brain. I make music you can either stop the world and focus heavy into it with a pair of headphones, or you can put Fine Cult on while you have your buddies over on the back patio for beers and a bonfire. A friend of mine says she likes to listen to it when she's driving on the road. It's often soundtracky (in a good way) and repetitive (also in a good way), and the lyrics are intentionally minimal -- just to conjure up pictures for the audience.

Q: Tell us about the process of recording the songs ?
LW: I find some time at night and start 99% of the time with a rhythm guitar line in any particular key and bpm. The songs grow from there. In the past five or six years I've picked up mostly Fender electrics and they inspire me in one direction or another from the beginning of a sound. Some tracks take weeks and weeks to grow all of the layers, where others I've nailed out in one or two sessions. Vocals are always the last piece.

Q: Which new bands do you recommend?
LW: I can tell you who I'm listening to now. Anna Calvi, FTR (aka Futures), The Soft Moon, and Wooden Shjips.

Q: Which band would you love to made a cover version of?
LW: The B-52's or OMD.

Q: What are your plans for the future?
LW: Keep crafting out new material. I'm going to work harder when time allows it to get Fine Cult up on Spotify and farther into the grid -- YouTube, etc.. A photographer friend in northern Indiana is working with me on cover art moving ahead. The first physical release from Fine Cult are coming out soon in a very limited cassette release of the 'White Glasses' EP through CustomMadeMusic.com out of Virginia.

Q: Any parting words?
Yah, keep tuning in to Bandcamp and Facebook to see what's the latest. Most new and older Fine Cult demos can be heard still at the SoundCloud page before eventually going into either the trash can, or post-production!
