How Moms can Improve Socializing and Make Extra Money

Did you know that you can use the social aspect of the online platforms to make money? Through these platforms you can also post properties ads for a earning a better livelihood. What better way to start to promote a business than with new cyber friends? The best part is that many of these cyber friends live in the same area as you and they have the potential to become your business associates and customers as well as your cyber friends. This is how socializing and making money on online platforms go hand in hand. Making it a HabitHow do you mix socializing and business? You can do this on online platforms. People will be more likely to buy from someone they know. If you get into the social aspect of online platforms, you will become known in the cyber community and this can translate itself into more sales. Let's examine how.For example, let's say that you have a jewelry store. You need more customers. You post an ad on online platform for your business and in this ad is a discount on purchases over $100.00. Now you start to socialize on the social media boards. You talk with this one and that. As you connect with more and more people online, tell them about your online platforms ad. Let everyone know that if they go to the ad and get the coupon, they will receive the discount. The more people that visit your ad the more business you will receive. In addition, ask them to vote for you in the best of online platforms. All it takes is a click of the mouse as they are visiting your ad. By promoting your ad and your business to the general online platforms community you will be building a customer base. The best thing of all is that with a very few exceptions, online platforms is free to post to.How can any mom do it?So how does one join online platforms. That is simple. If you have a valid email account, just click on the join option. Fill out the information and then you will have to enter in the scrambles letters at the bottom of the page so that the system knows you are a human and not some form of robot.Other than the jewelry store example listed above; what other types of businesses benefit from socializing and making money on online platforms? Through the online platforms, if any mom is has expertise in SEO, so she should join some community of SEO experts where she can better get more knowledge and make clients to earn through socializing. Almost any business can benefit from socializing. The key here is to join groups that are related to your business. If you are a gardener, then join gardening groups. If you are a homeschooling parent with a home-based business, then join a homeschool group. It all depends on what is the focus of your business and what you want to accomplish through socializing. Can it really work?Socializing and making money on online platforms should not be exclusive to one another. You should try to join as many groups as you can, especially online groups. Online groups can be visited when the mood strikes you and there is a lot less involved. Groups that get together to meet are also a good idea, but there are only so many you can join if you wish to actually run a business. There are many business groups to join. Many are woman based, and most of these welcome single moms.Unlike when you sell an item, you do not need to be a member of in order to participate in group meetings. This is fine if you are not posting ads. To post an ad, you must register.After scanning the groups available in your area what do you do if you cannot find a group that suits you? Then start one on your own. Think about the type of group you want to form, maybe build a website, find a place to meet and post an ad for the group. Many people might be interested, you will not know until you put the ad out there. Sometimes, all you need to do is ask. Do not let the lack of a group discourage you. Forming a group, especially in a smaller city is not as hard as you would think. There are people out there with interests similar to yours. As a business owner, this can be a great way to start meeting and greeting new customers. This is how socializing and making money on online platforms go hand in hand. See More

England have turned to Albert Einstein and Isaac Newton for inspiration as the Six Nations title race enters its final days. Rugby dressing rooms are not traditionally full of players debating the science of motion but England’s coaches are keen to focus minds on the area they believe will be pivotal against Scotland on Saturday.

Last year in Edinburgh England finished a distant second at the breakdown and Eddie Jones has been reminding everyone of Newton’s second law, subsequently taken on by Einstein. According to Jones’s scrum coach Neal Hatley, this should translate into England hitting harder around the tackle area.

          Not REALLY about the 142nd...The Hon. Alexander H. Coffroth      Cache   Translate Page      
A few months back I went to see Steven Spielberg's film "Lincoln". I know I'm going to write some things that sound contrary to this, but I had a great time and really enjoyed the film. I loved the feel, the look, and the tone of it.


None of the historical inaccuracies throughout are particularly important to the central theme of the film. My biggest complaint about the movie is not important to that theme of determination and justice either. My complaint is simply that of a "homer" who doesn't want to see any of Somerset County, PA's native sons shown in an unflattering light.

The day after I watched the film, in a fit of righteous indignation, I wrote a short essay defending US Rep. Alexander H. Coffroth from what I considered to be an incorrect attack on his reputation. I clicked "save" and said, "There, I feel better now." Realizing that no one else would read it, I filed it and went on with my life. I found it today cleaning off my desktop, and decided that even though Alexander Coffroth was not a member of the 142nd PA Infantry, three companies in that regiment shared the same county home with him, and that I would post it here.

Thanks for reading!


Alexander Hamilton Coffroth (May 18, 1828 – September 2, 1906)

Ford’s Theatre National Historic Site estimates that as of 2012, over 15,000 different books have been written about Abraham Lincoln. That is an average of almost 150 books a year written about our 16th President. Since his death in 1865, President Lincoln has been portrayed in book, film, and stage; by reenactor, and  as a wax figurine. Despite this market saturation, a book entitled “Team of Rivals” by renowned historian and author Doris Kearns Goodwin has recently captured the minds and  imagination of America. Published in 2006, Steven Spielberg has recently brought the book to life in the movie “Lincoln”.
The book and movie both focus a lot of time and attention on the arduous task Lincoln had in creating the 13th Amendment, which abolished slavery in the United States. The world of 1865 was much more nuanced than many popular historians would like us to believe. Just because someone would fight for the preservation of their country did not always translate into that person being an abolitionist. This made the task at hand far more difficult than it would originally seem.
The journey to ratify the 13th Amendment would take the work of the President, his advisors, and both houses of Congress. It would take political gamesmanship as well as some soul-searching for politicians. “Lincoln” has its own take on this process, and one of the politicians the movie portrays that would be absolutely essential in making slavery illegal was Somerset, PA native Alexander Hamilton Coffroth.
Jeremiah S. Black
Alexander Coffroth was a Somerset Democrat who was born there in 1828. The son of John and Mary Coffroth, Alexander went to the Somerset public schools, as well as the Somerset Academy. After he was finished with school, Coffroth was the editor of the Somerset Visitor, the Democratic newspaper of the town, before turning his attention to law. He was admitted to the bar in 1851, having studied in the offices of another famous Somerset County native, Jeremiah S. Black. Black became the Attorney-General, and then Secretary of State, under President James Buchanan. 

Alexander lived and practiced law in Somerset, and in 1854 married Nora Kimmel, with whom he would have four children.
It was during the trying times of civil war that Coffroth decided to get into politics. He was a delegate to the famous 1860 Democratic National Convention in Charleston, SC that saw the Party split in two along slave and free state lines. The split caused both sides to nominate different Presidential candidates, which made it easier for Abraham Lincoln to be elected.
In 1862, Somerset County was part of Pennsylvania’s 16th Congressional District, which also included Bedford, Franklin, Fulton, and Adams Counties. Coffroth squeaked out a victory by defeating incumbent Edward McPherson to become the youngest member of the House of Representatives. 

US Capitol Building under construction in 1861
President Lincoln began lobbying for a Constitutional amendment abolishing slavery during the first half of 1864. The Senate passed the bill, but it lost momentum in the House. Alexander Coffroth was one of the many Democrats opposed to this bill. In a speech to the House of Representatives on June 14, 1864, Coffroth stated:
“If slavery is to be abolished, allow it to be done according to the principles of common justice. Allow the people in each State the inalienable right through their legally constituted authorities to control their own domestic institutions in their own way.”
A few months later, President Lincoln was reelected and he again pushed ahead for a Constitutional amendment to abolish slavery. But it was also during this election cycle that Coffroth found his political life in limbo.
When the votes were tallied in October of 1864, Coffroth had beaten his opponent, William H. Koontz by a few votes. Koontz thought that it was a little too close and contested it. The race was in fact so close that Pennsylvania Governor Andrew Curtin would not certify the results. Finally, in July 1866, Koontz won the recount and took his seat in Congress. 

[I recently ran across a blog called "Battlefield Back Stories" that digs in way deeper and does much more justice to the issue of Coffroth vs. Koontz than I did here. Please check those articles out HERE and HERE ]

This period of uncertainty was when Alexander Coffroth changed his mind on the question of amending the Constitution to outlaw slavery. During the January 31, 1865 debate on the subject, Coffroth told the House:
“Mr. Speaker, I desire above all things that the Democratic party be again placed in power. The condition of the country needs the wise counsel of the Democracy. The peace and prosperity of this once powerful and happy nation require it to be placed under Democratic rule. The history of the past demonstrates this. The question of slavery has been a fruitful theme for the opponents of the Democracy. It has breathed into existence fanaticism, and feeds it with such meat as to make it ponderous in growth. It must soon be strangled or the nation is lost. I propose to do this by removing from the political arena that which has given it life and strength.”
The movie Lincoln tells the story (incorrectly, I believe) that Alexander Coffroth was bullied into changing his position and that he felt compelled to change parties to save his political life, but there is absolutely no evidence that this ever happened. He was a Democrat before he took office. He was a Democrat in Congress. He was Democrat when he was finished in office.
It does seem, though, that he was prepared for his Democratic colleagues and his constituents to be unhappy with his decision.
“Many of the honorable gentlemen of this House with whom I am politically associated may condemn me for my action to-day. I assure them I do that only which my conscience sanctions and my sense of duty to my country demands…If by my actions to-day I dig my political grave, I will descend into it without a murmur, knowing that I am justified in my action by a conscientious belief I am doing what will ultimately prove to be a service to my country…”
Coffroth’s vote, along with the few other Democrats that crossed party lines, helped pass the 13th Amendment by a count of 119-56, a mere seven votes above the necessary two-thirds majority. His vote garnered the attention of many. After the assassination of President Lincoln in April 1865, Coffroth was chosen from among all the Pennsylvania Congressmen to be the President’s honorary pallbearer.
After his removal from office in 1866, Alexander Coffrorth moved back to Somerset and returned to practice law until he was again elected to Congress for one term in 1878, still as a Democrat.
His most famous post-political job was as defense for the Nicely Brothers in their 1889 murder trial. This trial gathered national attention and had such a monopoly on the local newspapers that the great Johnstown Flood of that same year played second fiddle to it. The Nicely brothers, David and Joseph, were later hanged in Somerset for the murder of Herman Umberger. Coffroth teamed up with his 1864 political rival, William H. Koontz for this high profile job.
At the time of his death at the Markleton Sanitarium on September 2, 1906, Alexander Coffroth was the last living pallbearer from Abraham Lincoln’s funeral. His is a uniquely American story. From his birth in the mountains of southwestern Pennsylvania, to studying law under the Attorney General, to amending the United States Constitution so that no one in America again suffered the indignity of slavery, Alexander Coffroth took advantage of his opportunities and lived life with a purpose greater than himself. But he always remembered his home.  His burial in Somerset’s Union Cemetery ended the story of one of the most interesting, important, and forgotten public servants in Somerset County’s rich history.

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

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

Sir Tim Berners-Lee, Image via Wikimedia Commons

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          All the Different Names (and Nicknames) Queen Elizabeth II Has Had      Cache   Translate Page      

For most people, the title "the Queen" can only evoke one person: Queen Elizabeth II, the long-reigning monarch of the United Kingdom. Elizabeth II is an icon, which makes it easy to forget that she's also just a person like all of us. One thing she doesn't have in common with the rest of us, though, is the sheer variety of names, nicknames, and titles she carries. Here's a quick guide:

At birth, the Queen was christened Elizabeth Alexandra Mary. Her first name honors her mother, Queen Elizabeth the Queen Mother, while her two middle names are nods to her great-grandmother, Queen Alexandra, and her paternal grandmother, Queen Mary. Technically, she has a surname of Windsor, but senior members of the royal family do not use last names. Instead, because her father was then Prince Albert, Duke of York, she was officially titled Her Royal Highness Princess Elizabeth of York.

When her father became King George VI, she retained the style of Her Royal Highness but dropped the "York," instead becoming simply The Princess Elizabeth. For a few years, between her 1947 marriage to Prince Philip and her 1952 accession to the throne, she had a pretty unwieldy title that included her own royal title and her husband's ducal title: Her Royal Highness the Princess Elizabeth, Duchess of Edinburgh.

Once George VI died and Elizabeth became queen, the question of what she would call herself was immediately raised. In some cases, monarchs do not use their own first names, but instead take a "regnal name" that is typically one of their middle names. Her own father did this: his real first name was Albert, but he used George, one of his middle names, as a regnal name in order to honor his father, George V, and imply a sense of continuity and a return to stability after the brief and controversial reign of his brother, Edward VIII.

It's also occasionally used when a certain name becomes controversial for some reason. For instance, it's rumored that Prince Charles may not become Charles III when he becomes king, since that was the title claimed by an infamous Scottish "pretender" to the throne (Bonnie Prince Charlie, who's recognizable to Outlander fans for sure). Elizabeth, however, decisively kept her own name, unused for a queen regnant since Elizabeth I in the 1500s. Properly, she's now referred to as Her Majesty the Queen, or Queen Elizabeth II.

The Queen's most famous nickname is "Lilibet," which is reportedly based on how she pronounced her own name as a child. Her close family, such as her parents and her sister Princess Margaret, often called her that. According to Marie Claire, however, Prince Philip has given her a nickname that only he uses: "Cabbage." Supposedly, it's a play on words from the idiomatic French expression "mon petit chou" which translate directly as "my little cabbage." Prince William reportedly called the Queen "Gary" when he was a little boy, before he got the hang of "Granny," according to the Daily Mail.

On the flip side, Queen Elizabeth II has had at least one nickname that's not so flattering. As viewers of The Crown will remember, Edward VIII (aka Edward, Duke of Windsor) and his wife, Wallis Simpson, had catty nicknames for his family members, who they mostly resented and disliked. Published letters of the duke and duchess's reveal that they referred to Elizabeth as "Shirley Temple," presumably as a reference to her youth and her curly hair. If you ever meet the Queen, though, there are just two very simple names to remember: "Your Majesty," for the first introduction, and "Ma'am" later in conversation!

          Winter is coming... Surviving my first year as a photographer      Cache   Translate Page      

I guess it's ironic that i finally get around to writing this. The topic has been haunting me for the last five months and it is only now that it lies safely behind us that I seem to be able to pen this down.

The winter of 2013 was a long one – meteorologically speaking as well as financially.

I remember being relieved to see the (wedding) season finally winding down by December. 2012 was a fruitful year - better than I had dared imagining a first year in business would be. Sure we had to skim down some of our expenses and a vacation was not on the calendar, but we earned enough to eat and pay the bills and we were doing what we loved doing every day. Being self-employed was turning out to be a blast! Our plans for world domination within the next three years were going smoothly. We thought ourselves unstoppable!

So we went quietly - perhaps a tad overconfident - into the good night of the holidays. We wore our Christmas sweaters, ate our turkeys and drank our wine. Then came January. It started snowing, and snowing.

And the snow slowly turned black.

By the end of January, I was getting nervous. Somehow, the bills kept finding ways to our door clients weren't. Now, I had not been too haughty to put something on the side for a rainy day. But some unexpected costs (credit card debt, car trouble) popped up, rapidly depleting our emergency fund. Suddenly, we found ourselves with less than a month's worth of food on our account. And we were hungry.
We were in dire straits and had money for nothing.

One of the first things I discovered during this time is that my romantic ideas of winter-time rejuvenation and rekindled creativity were severely misguided. First of all, like most people, I perform horribly in a vacuum. I always was and have become even more convinced that 'absolute freedom' does hardly any one any good – I gladly leave that to artists.
Secondly, one of my most enduring memories from sociology class is that of the Maslow Pyramid. Mr. M states that basic needs need to be satisfied before you can think about self-fulfillment, artistic endeavors and the like. How right he was! I was not able to make the most of my 'leisure' time because we were too busy surviving. The joyful news that we had a small bundle of joy on the way (slated for October 22nd) did little to alleviate this stress.

And so we waited for good things to come our way.
A typical day for me consisted of checking my email over 50 times, doing incessant calculating about how best to spend the little we had, and turning off lights and household appliances in a futile attempt to cut down on our daily cost of living. Our lives felt like they were on pause while we learned how to get by with very little. (Funny fact: our accountant actually advised us in a very subtle way not to keep any income back from taxes. I laughingly ensured him that if we were keeping something back, by now, we surely had forgotten where we were hiding it.)

By the end of February, I'd had enough. If I would go down, I would do so fighting. I knew better times were ahead (by April the wedding season was picking up again) and I was determined to make it there in one piece. And so I started doing everything I could think of to make myself seen:
  • I mailed everyone I faintly knew might be interested in photography: owners of the venues our couples married in, everyone who ever gave me their business cards, friends, family ... it didn't matter; all the while trying to retain the pride I no longer had while communicating my willingness to provide them with pictures of all sorts. Little ever mailed back. So I started calling. Through sheer perseverance (one might say downright bullying), I worked myself into a few small contracts that would keep us going.
  • When the first money was earned and financial doom and gloom were averted, I picked up my personal projects again. Creativity is a muscle and by February, mine had severely atrophied. Apart from forcing myself to make pictures every day again, I did some soul-searching to find out which themes really interested me and how I could translate them to photography. I visited a children's daycare center to see what it would be for our little boy; I did a series of portraits with antique cameras at a school; I started collecting cameras and selling them via Etsy; I helped the people of Kavka with photography of their interiors and a friend of mine with pictures of the play she wrote; I started studying videography and found it to be a niche to be exploited in the Belgian market... (some examples are strewn across this page)




In short, I did everything I could ever think of to get out of our downward spiral. My return on investment was minimal but by then, my dogged tenacity was feeding my enthusiasm in a frantic feedback loop. We were going to survive. Not a question.
And then finally, like a plane piercing through an overcast sky, it was April and we were in the clear. A small but steady flow of cash was coming our way. Elise was invited to open a pop-up shop and flourished. Requests for all kinds of appointments were coming in. We could afford to buy the non-generic breakfast cereal again. We were living the high-life!

Now, by July, things are really looking up. While I can still find some time to relax (sometimes...), I have finally realized one of my goals for 2012: a more or less steady flow of income. We will be able to fund our wedding and still have some money left to refurbish the baby room in time for Oskar to come into our world. We can sigh relieved.

We've learned a lesson the (almost very) hard way. I am only now relaxing from high stress and the accompanying low stamina, energy and health; I've never been so tepid, tired and often sick as I was this winter. Moreover, while the season has only begun, I feel exhausted already. You have to be very thick-skinned not to let such things affect you. While I was glad to find we had the energy reserves to cope and pull ourselves out of the bog of bankruptcy, it will take some tome for me to be able to do so again.

I guess everyone (and especially every starting business) passes through this cycle of pride, megalomania, fall and lasting doubt. If you're lucky, you can stand up, shake it off – and do it all over again. I've learned some valuable lessons about solvency, clientele gathering, visibility and savings. My goals for 2013 will be far different than those I had for 2012.
Most importantly, I am determined never to let my son experience nor even see in his parents' eyes the distress we experienced this winter.

A thriving business will be a fortunate by-product of my striving.

Historically, the perpetual withdrawal rate has been about 3%. Whether the difference between that a 4% is "pretty small" is a subjective issue. It means that you need 33.3X your annual spending instead of 25X, which could easily translate into 5-10 additional years of working. Are those additional years worth it? That's up to you.

          Making Continuous Dialogues to Drive Digital Transformation      Cache   Translate Page      
Digital transformation makes a profound impact from the specific function to the business as a whole. Organizations see the value and need for effective, coordinated communication as the tool to solve problems and drive changes. Communication is the word means many things to many people and initiates a broad set of activities. How to make continuous dialogues for driving digital transformation and leading business success for the long term?


Dialogue is a means of coordination based on expertise and responsibility: Organizations are social realities that emerge from the communication patterns of people. Communication, whether verbal, non-verbal or digital, is the coordination mechanism that makes organizations possible and makes a group of people as a team. Digital transformation is a long journey, to keep the team motivated, it’s important to open digital dialogs for enforcing communication and encouraging cross-functional collaboration. However, most of the organizations today are process and control driven. The emphasis of management is on compliance, with the result people forget to think freely, communicate candidly, and do their work creatively. They get stuck in silo mentality and overly rigid organizational hierarchy. In today's volatile economy with the exponential growth of information and abundance of knowledge, nothing impedes innovation and digital transformation more than protective silos which are simply a form of the bureaucratic structure designed to preserve the status quo. To break down silos and catalyze changes, the strategic communication initiated by top digital leaders are not the top-down one-way street, it should embrace creativity, context, cascade, to enforce accountability, streamline knowledge flow, and achieve digital synchronization. It is also important to develop an atmosphere with effective and candid communication, fortify cross-functional coordination based on information, expertise, and responsibility.

Dialogue is relevant when people can understand what is communicated and are able to translate it into action or expertise:
It’s all about striking the right balance to communicate effectively and achieve the end goals. Communication is a means to end, not the end itself. The end is to gain knowledge, make effective decisions or take step-wise actions for achieving the high-performance result. From the business management perspective, there are top leaders accountable for the business and it depends on their vision and ability to initiate digital dialogs, collect the team’s import and commitment to get the work well-done. To have this happen reliably requires a bidirectional and reciprocal cycle of listening and telling, and develops the culture of continuous improvement. Build stronger teams and make effective cross-functional communication. Communication improves when team development is at its peak. Often, the communication bottleneck and the primary impediments to collaboration is a dissonance between upper and middle management and a similar dissonance between middle management and the frontline employees. Ultimately, these weakest links will break when change is intense and there is never truly an effort toward enterprise cohesion.

Digital dialogs are continuous conversations and iterative communication:
Digital dialog is neither one-way street nor “once a while “event. It needs to be continuous, iterative, and multi-channel because change occurs on a continuum. Communication shouldn’t just enforce the hierarchical “command & control” management style. The digital dialogs need to be concise enough to convey the key message; creative enough to connect the heterogeneous audience. It’s the leadership capacity to be non-judgmental; the capacity to appreciate and communicate with respect for other people's ways, and keep them informed of your expectation. You need to help your audience wrap their brains around what will change, what the timeline is, what the benefits are and what the desired outcomes of the change are. Continuous digital dialog leads to continuous improvement and continuous journey of digital transformation. It performs in collateral activities, meaning that people can step out of their daily job to perform specific improvement activities, and improvement is the reward for being willing to change.

Digital transformation is a continuous journey for adapting to the new normal of businesses, faster, always on, hyper-connected and fiercely competitive. Continuous and consistent open dialogues should replace the 'business as usual,” and “command-control” management style. It is so important to develop an open atmosphere with continuous dialogues to enforce effective and candid communication. It is also important to foster a healthy working environment where invaluable feedback and vital communication are based on information, trust, and reality. The business is in a healthy cycle of communicating, improving, and transforming.

          Collaboration and Culture Change: The Valuable Role of Storytelling in Health Care Improvement      Cache   Translate Page      
This post originally appeared on LillyPad, a blog for Eli Lilly Pharmaceuticals, where I write as an ePatient Advisor

Editors Note: Over the next few weeks we will spend some time listening to the stories of some ePatients who have been collaborating together on ways to show the value and importance of patients as partners, collaboration for improvement, and connection & learning through “the network” for healthcare improvement. It’s important that these stories be told beyond our Google Hangouts or private Facebook groups or dinner tables and pushed more deeply into prominent places in our society because you can’t have culture change without collaboration and you can’t collaborate on what you don’t know about.

There’s this weird feeling that happens after I return from a health conference. I’m so full of new ideas, having spent several days away focused only on the things I’m working on, being around only people who share my passions in this space. I get to put aside breathing treatments and medication ordering and insurance fighting as I listen to amazing presenters share about the phenomenal work they’re doing, trying to translate what they’re doing to what I do, always considering ways that we might be able to help one another. I eat lunch with unlikely partners and I’m fascinated by the wealth of knowledge they bring, wondering how on earth I got so lucky to have the opportunity to learn from them. Sometimes I’m the one presenting, proud of my work, anxious to share with others the ways that I believe what I do can also help them and their communities. Then there is dinner where we pack up “work” for a while and build relationships, getting to know one another on a more personal level – our interests, passions, families and friends. There’s a buzz that fills your soul and lifts your spirit.

Through these conversations, we realize a shared humanity and how our lives really are the fuel for the work that we do.‌ When I hop on the plane to leave these meetings, I’m so full of energy and renewed hope. Then just like that, I am back to the rat race – preschool drop off, signing school folders, sporting events, field trips, breathing treatments and appointments and medications and worry. There’s a buzz at home too, but a very different buzz. I’m so grateful to be home to the hugs and the very important stories about who sat next to whom on the bus, trying to squeeze in dinner between homework and basketball practice, turning on a movie so that I can find five minutes of quiet to order the medication that we will run out of in three days. But no one here understands. Here, people are doing their jobs and living their lives. They didn’t get to experience what I just experienced, what changes me just a little bit every time it happens. And I realize that without this buzz at home I wouldn’t have the other.

There’s absolutely no question that I would trade everything to take cystic fibrosis (CF) away from my son and our family. There are days when I wish more than anything that I could go back to being “just a mom,” scheduling playdates and going on nature walks, not having to sit at home waiting to sign for this month’s medication delivery or change our plans due to an unplanned illness. Yes, CF is a horrible disease that just takes and takes. I cannot change the disease, but we can control how we respond to it.

CF has expanded my friend circle and my world view. I have such a deep appreciation for the experiences of others, and I often learn the most from the people I don’t agree with. This is what it means to be an advocate - loving so much that your heart could burst, and then channeling that love and balancing it against the fear of loss. There isn’t a right or wrong way to be an advocate, but it’s something that those of us in the trenches are uniquely qualified for. Everyone can stand up and tell their story in an empowering way, but sometimes diagnosis or disease progression pushes us closer to this. As we work in health care improvement as patient advocates, there’s a focus on data. But data, while it can persuade people, doesn’t always inspire them to act. To quote an amazing article on the power of storytelling, “To do that, you need to wrap your vision in a story that fires the imagination and stirs the soul.” This, I believe to be true.

I’m honored to be able to share my story with the world, one that challenges the paradigm for how you can work with patients and caregivers. ‌Our lived experiences with research can help to grow our collective understanding of the benefits and challenges of participation‌ – what is it that each of us want, and how can we collaborate to achieve that. Together, we can make the shift from reactive to proactive care. Together, we find answers and change outcomes.

The new musical Hamilton is a powerful story that celebrates our founding fathers, who launched a new era of government. I’d like to honor some of the “founding fathers” of a new era of patient partnership in health care. They have helped to create the foundation upon which this great community is being built. It is through our stories weaving the thread between us all that we will continue to learn and grow. Over the next few weeks, you will hear from advocates in both the diabetes and cancer communities sharing their stories related to the idea of patients as partners, collaboration for improvement, and connection and learning through “the network.” So, in the words of Lin-Manuel Miranda as Alexander Hamilton, “Let’s raise a glass to the four of us, tomorrow there’ll be more of us, telling the story of tonight.” We hope you enjoy our stories.
          A Letter to the CF Learning Network       Cache   Translate Page      
We all have the unique opportunity to see the world from a different vantage point. I, as the mother of a child with CF, first saw this community as one of fundraisers, patients and families with an endless hope for a cure, working tirelessly to make connections and fund research to cure this disease. The more I got to know these folks, I started to see teachers and fathers and technologists and marketers and musicians and policymakers. I got to know the care team that was helping me to care for my son, and I realized that they were also soccer moms and artists and advocates, quality improvement specialists who weren’t just caring for my son, but caring for my community. I got more involved and started to see through my work and social networks how many different groups were working on similar things – parent & patient groups, the CF Foundation, pharmaceutical companies, the government – yet all unaware of the work of the others, and I started to think about how we might help those people and that information to intersect so that more people could learn together and time could be saved.

And then I would get discouraged or frustrated – there are so many moving parts! How could I get the care center in City A to do what the care center in City B was doing that seemed to be addressing the specific issue they were having? How could I make sure that my son was getting the best, most personalized care for him, not just the best care that his care team knew about? How could I share access to all that I’ve learned so that others could benefit from it as well? I shouldn’t have to stumble upon information on Facebook at the right time to find benefit.

Sometimes we don’t know what we don’t know, but I think it’s safe to assume in 2016 that if you don’t know the answer to something, you can quickly figure out how to find it.

I see information being shared every moment of every day – doctors like Raouf sharing the success of implementation of the chronic care model and the work that he has done as the head of our pulmonary department to achieve this success;  people like Emily Kramer Golingkoff starting her own research foundation with an urgency for progress because the trajectory of the science isn’t fast enough to save her life;  folks like LaCrecia who understand the realities of CF centers of all shapes and sizes and the need for a standardized yet  personalized approach to improvement  after having served as a coach for many years. Everyone has something unique to offer, something complimentary to what the rest of us each bring. People like Jim Murphy with compassion and empathy that partner with families to understand their unique needs and work tirelessly to minimize the impact of the disease on our lives. Adrienne likes to read, cook, crochet, hike and travel the world in addition to the clinical expertise and experience she brings.  Bruce’s leadership role enables him to help different groups both within and beyond the foundation to mingle for improvement and change. Breck is a fundraiser, a storyteller and an advocate, not only sharing what she knows but always eager to learn and connect. And folks like Tracey and Sophia and Sarah help us to stay on track, organizing our work and helping to create a roadmap out of the many pins we drop. Michael says yes. He encourages us to try new things, taking risks, and leads by doing.  I bring and insatiable curiosity, a connection to a strong network of like-minded  folks desperate for change, and a never-ending hope that people like Drew can be well, retaining the autonomy to make decisions in their life according to their own priorities, not according to cystic fibrosis.
People make connections in a network all the time. It’s not something we are advocating for. It is something that happens. I could go on and on about the strengths that we all have, but I suspect that as we part ways and reflect on the time we spent together we will all be well aware of the value of the contribution that each of us is making to this work.

There is a great TED Talk by a woman named Angela Blanchard that talks about how we, as a society, as people wanting to help, are trained to look at the problems - the lacks, gaps, needs, wants - the broken stuff, and how we can’t build on broken. She suggests that perhaps instead of looking at all that people don't have, we should start to look at what they do. I think this has a lot of relevance for this learning health system model we are moving toward. I can give you the example of an ENT appointment a few months ago. When we sat down in the office the nurse said, "So we have Andrew here, a 5yr old male with a history of cystic fibrosis, tracheomalacia, pancreatic insufficiency, more bronchoscopy's than I can count, chronic sinusitis, a bowel resection, ileostomy, and airway abnormalities. His medication list is about 4 pages long but I've gotta go through it so here we go." I interrupted her to say, "There’s a lot right with him, too." She chuckled and we moved on.

What if Angela Blanchard is exactly right and we can't build on broken. What if the answer lies in our ability as a team - patient and provider and researcher and foundation - to share what we have, and build what we can to find what we need. What if we can't see the solution by just looking at the problem?  It is about partnership, but a different kind. A partnership focused on what we each have rather than what we each need.

The TED talk goes on to say “We've all been in situations, as humans, raw and painful and excruciating moments, and it's hard in those moments to think about asking people what they have, talking about their strengths, what they're good at.”  But much like so many of us in this room feel compelled to help, in fact were trained to help, the patients/caregivers, we want to contribute too.  All of our stories matter. We want to tell you what we can do and what we do know as that's the first step on my path to a new story. This gives us all hope, meaning, a sense of belonging.  Think about how we might be able to shift away from the post-traumatic stress of diagnosis or disease progression and toward post traumatic resilience, something that science has proven comes when one feels they are making a meaningful contribution. Think about how that might translate to successful transitions, adherence, sustainability, success. We all have the capacity to imagine a future different from the life we live. The job of those who want to help , those of us in this room today, is to stand together.

I believe that success of our work will be dependent upon this enhanced appreciation of what we each have. I encourage you to listen to one another, like really listen, especially when you don’t agree or you hear something unexpected, for its these moments that we can most learn from. Its something I’ve been working on and its paid off big time.

My wish for the CF Community is that we can work together to figure out how to pull our strengths together to create something better than any of us can create alone, laying the tracks for the greater CF community to see the potential in themselves and contribute to create change.
We’ve had an incredibly impressive group of folks in this room for the past two days, from White House Champions of Change  to esteemed scholars, members of PCORI and the Institute for Healthcare Improvement and people with CF and parents who find the time to step away from the demands of this disease to help. And that’s just whose in this room. When you think about the CF Community more broadly and consider all that they have and all that they do, there is no doubt that we will succeed in our work.  Thanks for being here and for the unique gifts that you bring. Let’s do this!!!

          memorizing twice      Cache   Translate Page      
reading the Bible is something that i do every day. most mornings i wake up (not always easily..) spend a few moments checking email, and then i head to the kitchen to heat water for coffee, wash dishes, and grab a simple breakfast. then it's back to my living room with coffee and cereal .. often homemade, with homemade yogurt, and some nice fruit as well. :) i put them on a stool, tuck my legs up in my comfy chair and open the Word. somehow, eating physically reminds me that i am eating spiritually. the Bible isn't just something that's good to know, or something i try to get through .. spending time quietly reading, pondering, listening, reflecting, meditating .. is good and necessary for the soul!

a couple weeks ago, i read Ephesians. it's only six chapters, and sometimes it's good to read whole books at a time .. not just a chapter or two a day. so i was reading the whole book on this particular day, but when i got to the end of the third chapter, i just stopped. and i read it again. and again. and again. and then i worked on memorizing the words. it's a passage that's well known. but, like so many things which are familiar, sometimes we forget what is actually being said. on this particular day, it struck me as astounding.
For this reason I kneel before the Father, from whom his whole family in heaven and on earth derives its name. I pray that out of his glorious riches he may strengthen you with power through His Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love, may have power, together with all the saints, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge -- that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God. Now to Him who is able to do immeasurably more than all we ask or imagine, according to his power that is at work within us, to him be glory in the church and in Christ Jesus, throughout all generations, for ever and ever! Amen. -- Ephesians 3.14-21
Amazing!! glorious riches .. Christ may dwell in your hearts .. rooted and established in love .. all the fullness of God .. his power that is at work within us .. what astounding concepts! i shared these verses with a few friends, but then i had the idea that it would be cool to share it at church. except for the fact that it meant memorizing it in another language. but i was up for the challenge. so .. i did. i memorized it (mostly) in Romanian. and English. same concept, but different words, different emphasis. it was a challenge, but a good one. except that now, when i think about this passage, it is hard to think of it solely in one language or the other. if i am reciting it to myself and get stuck, it is often the other language which comes to mind. so i translate it back into which ever language i'm using at the time. but it's a strange place .. having this passage mostly memorized in two language, and succeeding to keep them separate only by deep concentration. maybe that's how the rest of my brain is .. a bit unorganized, in terms of language, so it only makes sense. but still .. a bit odd to begin in one language and end in another.

apologies for the long pause. hope you enjoy this story!

wednesday i traveled from romania to germany. two plane rides. each of them less than two hours. but still .. i got to be on a plane! traveling is something i always enjoy, and this day was no exception. i arrived at the airport in germany and needed to get down to the train station (connected to the airport, just takes a bit of walking to get there) for the train i had a ticket on that left 40 minutes after i had collected my baggage.

when i arrived at the train station, i looked up at the wall to see which trains were leaving when. my train wasn't on the list. i got a feeling that all was not well with the world .. and walked back a short ways to the place where you can buy tickets. i showed one of the women working there my ticket, and she said 'oh.. this is from the main station in the city, not from the airport station.' she looked at my sad face and said 'there's a train leaving on line 4 in 4 minutes. it's ten minutes into the city center and the conductor probably won't come and ask for tickets. so .. that's what i did. i walked very quickly and made the train (it was two minutes late, even, so i didn't have to worry!) and although the conductor passed by, there were many people already waiting to exit the train at the stop so she didn't ask for any tickets. thanks, God!

the track i needed to be at was just one over, so it was easy to get there and i even had almost 10 minutes to spare! turns out the train was running 10 minutes late, so i had a bit more time. once i got on the train and found a seat (i had a seat on my ticket but it was in use, so i just found one nearby) that was next to another woman. i assumed she was a german, and when she went to the bathroom she spoke german to me. but .. after she came back, she called her mother. and .. what language did she happen to use?! why, romanian, of course! so we had an hour and a half to talk about all sorts of things! there were some mechanical problems with the train, so it stopped for a bit and went a slightly different direction .. but God had provided this woman who would kindly translate for me! and who let me use her phone to call the friends i am visiting, letting them know i was going to be late.

it felt so .. providential. something that is just too much to be a coincidence. i come to a different country .. and end up having a ticket for the wrong train .. and sit down next to a random woman .. who just happens to be fluent in romanian and german (and at least 3 other languages as well!) .. and who wants to talk about some of what God is doing in romania, and things we understand about the culture. such a gift! made me feel that i truly am taken care of. with nothing to worry about :)

<blockquote>Our civilization, built on blood and sweat, is being eroded by screens and soy.</blockquote> YAWN. This complaint is at least as old as Horace, yet civilization doesn't seem to have gone anywhere. Whenever any social change appears, cranky pundits rush to blame it for corrupting tender young minds: waltzes, chess, films, jazz, comic books, plays and romances, children's birthday parties. Even Robert Louis Stevenson complained about "mendacious umbrellas" in the hands of young people (the forerunner of "lying makeup"). Here's an excerpt from a letter someone wrote to <em>Town and Country</em> magazine in 1777: <em>Whither are the manly vigor and athletic appearance of our forefathers flown? Can these be their legitimate heirs? Surely, no; a race of effeminate, self-admiring, emaciated fribbles can never have descended in a direct line from the heroes of Potiers and Agincourt...</em> All of these translate to "People are having fun instead of cowering before tradition and authority, and I disapprove."

Yusuph Emmanuel (© Martine Wauters)

Action for Swifts is supporting a project to enable a talented young Tanzanian, Yusuph Emmanuel, to travel to the International Swift Conference in Tel Aviv in March.

AfS has agreed to enable UK people to make contributions via its Paypal link and bank account.
[Update - this appeal is now closed - we raised £575 - so Yusuph goes to Tel Aviv - THANK YOU! 

Martine has put a report of Yusuph's visit to Tel Aviv on her blog - use Google Translate to read it in English]


All monies received by AfS will be forwarded to the project.

Other methods of making payments (cheques and bank transfer) to AfS are described herePlease provide a clear reference to "Project Yusuph" with any payment.

For payments outside the UK, please contact Martine


Martine Wauters, whose initiative this is, describes the rationale behind this idea:

I'm contacting you with a call for financial support for an amazing Swift supporter from the Jane Goodall Institute (JGI) in Tanzania, to whom I would like to give the opportunity of participating in the next International Swift Conference in Tel Aviv.

As some of you may know, Dr Jane Goodall has been supporting my transcontinental Swift projects for years. In 2017, she asked her Tanzanian director to contact me in order to support my “Swifts Without Frontiers” initiative. Last July, I had the honour of making an "inspirational talk" to international "youth leaders" of her Roots & Shoots (R&S) network (a very successful worldwide youth programme), during a yearly summit in Windsor.

One of those 10 delegates, selected out of over 100,000 R&S groups, was Yusuph Emanuel, a 33 year-old Tanzanian from Kigoma. Yusuph had been a very dedicated R&S volunteer since 2000. Since his graduation from the Shinyanga Teachers College in 2013, he has been volunteering for the JGI in Kigoma, in various projects such as planting trees in schools, providing environmental education, raising awareness and love of animals and pursuing other community development activities.

After my presentation, Yusuph was immediately eager to support Swift conservation. Since his return to Tanzania last August, he has been leading an impressive awareness-raising campaign, talking with passion to over 2,500 students, and leading field study expeditions.

Swifts killed by villagers in the region of Kigoma
© Yusuph Emmanuel (R&S Tanzania)
During that field work, he's been finding out about regular cases of massive killing of various species of Swifts and Swallows, that have been traditionally eaten by the local population. He has not only been documenting and reporting this to me, but he's also been fighting with diplomacy and dedication to try and find a sustainable solution.

By helping him to go to Tel Aviv, you would not only allow him to learn a lot during the conference, but also to meet potential partners for future Swift and Swallow conservation in Tanzania. He could also participate with me in some school activities near Tel Aviv, and to be JGI's ambassador at the Swift Welcoming Ceremony, where he would represent R&S partner groups from Belgium, Spain, Scotland and South Africa (a.o.) who have all been participating in my Swifts without Frontiers projects.

He would be the first ever representative from sub Saharan Africa to participate in such a conference, which could open promising perspectives for Swift conservation in the area where those birds spend 9 months of the year, with no or very little conservation measures.

The aim of Swifts Without Frontiers is to help to support such initiatives and transcontinental partnerships in order to know and protect Swifts better throughout their range. As an active member of a world-wide programme dedicated to animal and environment protection, as well as to education and peace promotion, I’m convinced that Yusuph deserves massive support from the “Northern Swift Community”.

You can help by donating funds to cover his accommodation and travel expenses (or « frequent flier miles » if you have some from Air France).  We are still working out costs, but they are likely to be of the order of £1000.

Should there be any funds left over after paying for Yusuph’s trip to Tel Aviv they will be reserved for projects to support Swift and Swallow protection in Tanzania. A nation-wide campaign is being prepared by JGI Tanzania, with the help of Swifts Without Frontiers and the Dar Es Salam University.

You can find more pictures of Yusuph and his activities on my blog:

          Journalist Explains How Mike Pompeo Helps 'Translate Trump' To The World      Cache   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 Fresh Air. To see more, visit Fresh Air . TERRY GROSS, HOST: This is FRESH AIR. I'm Terry Gross. The summit between President Trump and North Korea's leader, Kim Jong Un, collapsed with no agreement on steps toward North Korea's nuclear disarmament. The summit is just the latest challenge in a larger balancing act for Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, writes my guest, journalist Mattathias Schwartz. He describes Pompeo as the primary architect of Trump's negotiations over the nuclear arsenal controlled by Kim Jong Un. Another part of Pompeo's job, according to Schwartz, is traveling the world cleaning up Trump's messes after Trump tries to execute hairpin policy turns, often by tweet. Schwartz's new article, titled "Mike Pompeo's Mission: Translating Trump To A Wary World," will be published Sunday in The New York Times magazine, where he is a contributing writer. The article is already on the website. Pompeo served in the House of Representatives from 2011 to 2017. He was

          Matthew Melton "Outside of Paradise" on Southpaw Records      Cache   Translate Page      

I think it says something when the copy I ordered of Outside of Paradise on Southpaw Records comes a few days before the review copy they sent. I blindly order anything involving Matthew Melton. It's guaranteed to be good, starting back with Bare Wires there isn't anything I haven't worn out listening too. I'd go as far as to say anything that anything Matt puts out on his own label Fuzz City Records is worth picking up also. "Outside…" is a collection of his solo material from the past seven years picking up where Still Misunderstood left off. He's insanely prolific and it makes sense that the same energy of the garage, the forces of springy reverb and power chords would propel his creative momentum. The energy inherent in this style would of course translate into output and not just in his own recorded material but even in producing bands like Shannon and the Clams, Hunx and Adam Widener defining the sound of Oakland, CA.

The front cover art actually makes me think I've been taking him too seriously all along since he's resorted to cutting and pasting himself in the middle of the woods or on a raft in space. He's always been a bad ass, posing next to old bikes, exclusively wearing jeans and leather jackets never shaving that mustache but I didn't expect this obviously subversive side to spell it out. But then I think that's what sets this apart from Ty or Seth, it's that wink along with the attitude. It's not as bluesy or grimy sounding as either of those two and has always had one foot over the wall of '60s sound but it's got a sense of humor that maybe isn't so obvious.

Outside of Paradise seems to combine surf and sandy beach together with packs of motorcycles and echoes from late '60s girl groups like The Shirelles or The Angels. In 2015 the sound is full of nostalgia while being deliberately dirty and honest. Flipping ideas about love through the use of guitar tone and recorded fuzz. He's after tracks that are going to be exciting with roots in ultra familiar themes and a verse/chorus structure that's perfection like the title track. It's the tightest most concise songwriting, there isn't a note that overstays it's welcome. Every track is a unique burst of punk that's obviously in the same family but took completely different paths.

He's got an uncanny ability to turn a simple distorted melody into an amazing chorus. He's delivering the same blindingly syrupy punk as in Warm Soda, it's such a part of his DNA. It should be a joke he's so good at it, but you can't study this as intensely only to parody it. He takes the drum sounds on this record as serious as the spectrum of guitars from the brittle tin foil high hat tones and bass pounded into that pillowy cinder block. He's forever exploring distorted buzz and finding new variations his whole life, impressively changing that instrument every track. It's a garage-soul-punk record from a guy trapped in the single speaker mono am radio on the workbench out in the garage. It's a well oiled, elegant piece of circuitry that's classic and cool. It's not an expensive or rare model just a perfect solution to listening to two sides of perfection.

Get this from Southpaw Records.

          Grid Localization seems not to work      Cache   Translate Page      

 

Hi,

I'm trying to translate the filter menu of the Grid.

the instructions on page:

https://www.telerik.com/kendo-vue-ui/components/grid/api/FilterableProps/

seems clear.

But if I put by example:

 

<kendo-grid ref="grid"  :data-source-ref="'datasource1'" :pageable='true' :sortable="true"  :filterable="true"  :selectable="true"
 :filterable-messages-clear="'Reimposta'"

 

The text of the relative button is always "clear".
Any suggestions?
Thank's in advance!

Clinimetric properties of the Fugl-Meyer assessment with adapted guidelines for the assessment of arm function in hemiparetic patients after stroke.

Top Stroke Rehabil. 2018 10;25(7):500-508

Authors: Amano S, Umeji A, Uchita A, Hashimoto Y, Takebayashi T, Takahashi K, Uchiyama Y, Domen K

Abstract
BACKGROUND: Against the background of linguistic and cultural differences, there is a need for translation and adaptation from the English version of the Fugl-Meyer Assessment (FMA) to Japanese. In addition, there is no study of inter-rater reliability of FMA all domains for affected upper extremities with appropriate sample size based on the intraclass correlation coefficient (ICC) focusing on non-simultaneous assessment.
OBJECTIVE: This study aimed (1) to translate the English version of the FMA and its administration/scoring manual; and (2) to investigate the psychometric properties of the Japanese version of the FMA in patients with stroke.
METHODS: A prospective single-center study involving 30 patients was conducted. The FMA and the Action Research Arm Test, the Box-and-Block Test, and the Motor Activity Log were employed. The inter-rater/intra-rater reliability, the internal consistency, the validity, and the floor/ceiling effects were assessed.
RESULTS: Regarding the non-simultaneous and simultaneous inter-rater reliability, ICC ranged from 0.809-0.983 (P<0.001) and 0.991-0.999 (P<0.001), respectively. Regarding the simultaneous intra-rater reliability, ICC ranged from 0.994-0.999 (P<0.001). The Cronbach's alpha was 0.973 in the non-simultaneous evaluation and 0.981 in the simultaneous evaluation. Regarding the validity, Spearman's rhos were higher than 0.92 for the FMA all domains and motor domain. The patients who showed the highest score and the lowest score of the FMA (all domains and motor domain) were 10% and 0%, respectively.
CONCLUSIONS: The Japanese version of the FMA motor domain and all domains can reliably assess the affected upper extremities in patients with mild-to-severe hemiparesis after stroke for both non-simultaneous and simultaneous assessment.

          One Common Language Essay      Cache   Translate Page      
According to an eleventh century Arab writer, Ibn-e-Hazm, in the graduation exercise there existed a hit speech communication given by God, thank to which Adam was able to beneathstand the quiddity of things. Over the chequered accounting of mankind, the fragmentation of this unique tongue that existed abinitio gave rise to a multitude of divers(prenominal) languages. An integration of each(prenominal) these, or a reversion to a single language would have some(prenominal) repercussions. The fundamental benefits of a single cosmea language are pragmatic. A common language would dissolve all conference barriers and increase mutual understanding between people and the population over. Such an environment would be conducive to population peace and the subvert of conflicts. Economic prosperity would be facilitated as business partners are able to communicate freely, leading to a growth of international trade. Xenophobia and other connect human fears would be eliminated as people are united under one language.This would undermine at least some racism or ethno-centrism as societies become more egalitarian in their outlook on foreign individuals. On the cultural front, a unique tongue would gift redundant the need to translate works of literature or to supply/dub movies. The dissemination of knowledge and information could be done freely and in all parts of the globe, as the worlds inclusion of different cultures rises. However, there are some drawbacks of a single world language. The convenience of a single language with its resulting blandness would not comprise for a full life. Language is more than just a communication of needs, it is a reflection of the social, historical and cultural milieu of society and is accordingly a sacred institution. By restricting the modes of human expression to a single language we would be stultifying, repressing and suffocating mans desire to be creative. The limits of my language are the limits of my world, as p syche once aptly noted.Also, in a manner similar to the office depicted in George Orwells Nineteen Eighty-four, a single language is a dangerous situation as it may throw away disproportionate power into the few hands controlling the medium. Although the implementation of a single language is an achievable target, the situation is bound to be cursory and impossible to maintain in the long run. Cultural differences between societies authorize language. This is proven by the distinct cultures of the countries speaking the same language.Hence, although the same language, English, as spoken in Canada for instance, is dissimilar to that spoken in the coupled Kingdom, the United States of Australia. Also, the culture of a country may be composed of several sub-cultures each with its own language. The home of the Queens English the UK is where English, Gaelic, Welsh, Punjabi, Bengali and Urdu, all coexist. Another obstacle in achieving this target of common language is political pri de, which could create conflict between nations, when the choice of a controlling language is being made. In the light of the above discussion, I would put forward that if we are to succeed economically, socially, culturally and politically, then the world must boob plurilinguism. The future is a multi-lingual one.

          Traffic Management Systems Market Emerging Growth and Top Key Vendors to Watch- EFKON AG, Siemens AG, Nuance, Hitachi, and Iteris in 2017-2025      Cache   Translate Page      

Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 03/13/2019 -- The mounting rise in the number of personal and commercial small and heavy vehicles on the roads across the globe has led to an immense rise in the need for effective management of these vehicles so as to track and manage traffic and maximize performance, operations, and reliability of all aspects concerning road networks. These requirements are driving the global market for traffic management systems globally.

In the past few years, a vast variety of traffic management systems have been introduced in the global market, covering aspects such as vehicle detection, tunnel traffic management, ramp metering, and bridge traffic management. With governments across the globe putting increased focus on the effective management of traffic as a way of reducing pollution, fostering social and economic development by reducing the time spent by their populations on roads, keep their limited road networks running smoothly, the demand for effective traffic management systems has significantly increased recently. In this report, Transparency Market Research presents a thorough assessment of the growth prospects of the market in present times as well as the near future.

Global Traffic Management Systems Market: Drivers and Restraints

The demand for effective traffic management solutions is expected to rise at a promising pace in the next few years, thanks to the vast rise in vehicle ownership globally and the rising awareness regarding the social and economic losses that economies incur due to traffic jams. The Texas A&M Transportation Institute estimates that Americans spend about 5 bn hours and are required to spend on an extra 3 bn gallons of fuel on an average due to traffic congestions. These numbers translate to extra expenses worth nearly US$120 bn every year. Europe incurs losses amounting to nearly 1% of its GDP every year due to traffic congestions according to the Mobility & Transport department of the European Commission.

The situation is worse in emerging economies across regions such as Asia Pacific and Latin America wherein a vast rise in disposable incomes is promoting vehicle ownership but the outdated infrastructures, rapidly mushrooming urban setups, and slow pace of infrastructural developments are making traffic a major challenge for the population. Owing to these factors, and the fact that traffic management systems can have a significant impact on the issue of road congestions, the demand for traffic management solutions is expected to rise at a promising pace in the near future. The market is also expected to benefit from the rising number of solutions at affordable costs, which could allure consumers across emerging and cost-conscious economies as well.

Global Traffic Management Systems Market: Segmentation

For a more detailed outlook of the global traffic management systems market, the report segregates it into logical segments based on aspects such as key elements, applications, and geography.

          Cure For Frustration      Cache   Translate Page      
Over the last few days I've been doing a bit of research into being a literary agent and a book editor. No, not because I'm planning on moving to the other side of publishing. It's research for my serial. Laurie in Virtually Ideal starts off as an unpaid intern at a literary agency, and so I needed to know what exactly they do on a day to day basis, how networking with editors works, and what a new agent would need to learn. It's fascinating looking into exactly what they do, how much they get paid (or really don't) and how much work it all takes.

My research extended to include which parts of contracts agents need to be especially wary of, and why they need to double and triple check all royalty statements from publishing houses. (For all those without your own agent, or who want to understand some of the pitfalls better, I highly recommend you take the 10 minutes or so to read this article on Royalty Statements by Richard Curtis.)

Doing this research produced two effects in me. The first is that I feel sorry for publishing editors, but not at all sorry for publishing houses. The editors appear to be vastly exploited, working long hours for what is basically a graduate level pay. The publishing houses, probably their financial division, on the other hand appear to employ a number of very dodgy and at times possibly illegal activities. Between badly reported royalty earnings, misrepresenting sales, not declaring reserves and never paying back reserves, it all becomes a bit scary. I highly recommend all writers do their research into these things so they know what they should be looking for.

The second is something I've felt on a number of occasions; it is an overwhelming sense of frustration. Yesterday I found a perfect description of it by Adele Parks, now a best selling contemporary women's authors, in the Writers' and Artists' Yearbook 2013:

"I clearly remember, before I was published, standing in a Waterstones bookshop on Oxford Street, London, literally weeping in frustration as I stared at the plethora of published works; I wanted to know, what was the magic ingredient? Why were those books published and not mine?"

Writing and then getting published is a long process. Even if you write very quickly, the editing process, then the production process, then marketing and getting people to actually buy the books takes time. Even with self-publishing. And that can be frustrating. Frustrating when other people seem to have it much easier, and their books aren't even that good! (I totally accept J.K.Rowlings, her books were wonderful, she turned them all out on time, and she managed to maintain the quality. Other people, however...)

Reading about the publishing industry, how much chance it appears to be, how difficult it all is, and how long it takes left me feeling like I would never eventually 'make it'. Even in self-publishing there is the same sense when reading about other people's successes, the sudden boom in sales and publishers knocking on their door. I wanted to curl up and cry and never look at my writing again.

Anyone else ever feel like this? (Don't worry if you don't answer, Adele has assured me I'm not alone).

This has plagued me on and off for all the time I've been writing. But finally, last night, I found a very effective cure.

In my last post I linked to a YouTube video on The Willpower Instinct (still highly recommend it if you haven't watched it yet. Is 50 minutes, but worth it). One of the exercises Kelly McGonigal recommends for increasing will power is to connect with your future self. Researchers found that students who were given the opportunity to 'talk' with their future selves, asking questions about how life turns out and realising that their future self will experience everything as they do, then showed greater ability to delay gratification in important areas such as setting up savings accounts, etc.

So I tried it. Last night I wrote a letter from my 41 year old self to me now. Ten years in the future, what did I want to say to the person I am now. It was an amazing message of hope and gratitude. In ten years my dreams of being a best selling author had come about. It might have taken longer than I thought it would, but the effort I put in when I was 31-32 now pays my kids' school fees and means I can take wonderful holidays with my family. Yes, it took a while to get a traditional publishing contract, but by building my collection of quality self-published work I had increased the value of that contract because of all the back sales. Taking that bit of extra time in editing meant that I was still proud of all the work I had produced. And the hours I spent at the computer rather than watching T.V. meant that I could now spend time playing with my children.

To your future self, after the event, it doesn't seem to matter if it happened after 1 year or after 5. The important thing is that you kept trying until it did happen.

So I highly recommend you try this next time you get frustrated. And yes, maybe I will need to keep writing myself letters of encouragement. I might need to be my own cheer squad for many years to come. But eventually I will be there, because I'm not going to let myself give up.

And having said all that, there are also sweet points along the way. I've received two reviews from individuals who won a copy of After The Winter, both 4 stars on Goodreads (which anyone who knows Goodreads will realise how great that is.) How sweet are these?

Rachael said: "If you’re a fan of Downton Abbey, then you’ll love this book" (what more could an author ask for?)

And Kathryn said: "Lucinda is a lovely character who makes you just want the best for her. I wanted to give her a hug at different points and tell her that it would all be ok." Which is exactly how I felt for Lucinda, so I'm glad that other people feel this way too!

For the full reviews, see After The Winter on Goodreads. 

Goals:
I'm now working on episode 6 of Virtually Ideal. Last week I had a few reasonable days of 3,500 words, and one or two great days of just over 5,000. Then I had a day or two like yesterday when I couldn't write anything fresh.

However, I did not waste that time. I spent two hours yesterday, and one hour the other day I couldn't write editing Bootcamp. I'm focusing on the manuscript section by section at the moment and going over each chunk to make sure it's logical, with the clearest possible examples, good connectors and says everything that I want it to. I can see that it still needs quite a lot of editing work, but every time I read it I'm impressed with the good advice I've given (some of which I then put into practice myself!).  

This week I want to finish episode 6 and start episode 7. Need to keep pushing ahead as I want to finish the series this month so I can do my own Nanowrimo in July to write a brand new contemporary romance: Five Days In Vienna (based on a true story... mine. But more about that later). But if I get too burnt out to write, then I'll spend more time editing Bootcamp.

My brother is sending me a copy of Story by Robert McKee, which is particularly for screenplays but my brother was so impressed with the practical information that he said I needed to read it. I'm really looking forward to it. 

I'm also ahead in my reading challenge, which is great. At the moment I'm working my way through The Aeneid, as I've never read the whole thing, though I had to translate Book IV for my Latin test in year 12, so have always felt a connection to the work. The translation I have is not the most fluid, so it takes quite a bit of mental effort to read, but is refreshingly vivid and varied in its language. 

Anyone else have a good cure for frustration?

          All That You Need to Know About Man-in-the-Middle Attacks       Cache   Translate Page      

In a man-in-the-middle (MITM) attack, a black hat hacker takes a position between two victims who are communicating with one another. In this spot, the attacker relays all communication, can listen to it, and even modify it.

man-in-the-middle attacks

Imagine that Alice and Barbara talk to one another on the phone in Lojban, which is an obscure language. Nancy is a secret agent who needs to listen in on their conversation but who cannot tap the phone line. Nancy is very clever and talented, so she does the following:

  1. Nancy observes Alice and Barbara for a while. She notices that Alice always calls Barbara, not the other way around.
  2. Nancy recognizes that Alice and Barbara are speaking in Lojban. She learns that language.
  3. Nancy slips a business card into Alice’s purse. The card says “Barbara” but it has Nancy’s phone number.
  4. When Alice calls this number, it is Nancy who receives the call. She answers in Lojban and imitates Barbara’s voice.
  5. Nancy immediately calls Barbara on another phone. She imitates Alice’s voice, saying hello in Lojban.
  6. Nancy continues both conversations switching between them as needed.

Now Alice and Barbara are both certain that they are talking to one another. In reality, they are talking to Nancy who relays communication between them. Nancy knows all the secrets. She may also manipulate the information that Alice and Barbara are sharing with one another.

To pull this off, Nancy uses several tools. For example, she spoofs Barbara’s phone number, she figures out the encryption (Lojban language), and she authenticates by imitating voices. Black hat hackers do very similar things in the IT world.

Are Man-in-the-Middle Attacks Dangerous?

In the world of IT security, black hat hackers usually use man-in-the-middle attacks to eavesdrop on communications between a client and a server. This includes HTTPS connections to websites, other SSL/TLS connections, Wi-Fi connections, and more.

Such hackers have two primary goals: to gain access to sensitive information and/or to manipulate transmitted content. In practice, they can use MITM attacks:

  • To get personal information for identity theft
  • To get login credentials, for example, to gain access to an online bank account
  • To change the target account number to their own when the user is making a bank transfer
  • To get a credit card number when the user is paying at an online shop

You must also remember that websites are not the only target of MITM attacks. A very common target are emails which by default do not use any kind of encryption. If an attacker can get access to an email account, they may intercept and spoof emails.

Real-Life Examples of MITM Attacks

Man-in-the-middle attacks were known a long time before the advent of computers.

In the world of computing, some of the most famous cases linked to MITM attacks were the following:

How Do MITM Attacks Work?

A black hat hacker may attack a connection that is secure (encrypted) or not. In both cases, the first goal is to intercept the connection – like Nancy first has to slip a business card into Alice’s purse. There are many ways to do this including ARP spoofing, IP spoofing, and DNS spoofing. The attacker may also use other attack vectors to take control of the victim’s machine or the server and eavesdrop from there.

ARP Spoofing (ARP Cache Poisoning)

ARP (Address Resolution Protocol) translates between the physical address of an Internet device (MAC address – media access control) and the IP address assigned to it on the local area network. An attacker who uses ARP spoofing tries to inject false information onto the local area network to redirect connections to their device.

For example, your router has the IP address 192.168.0.1. To connect to the internet, your laptop needs to send IP (Internet Protocol) packets to this address. First, it must know which physical device has this address. The router has the following MAC address: 00-00-00-00-00-01.

man-in-the-middle

Let’s say that Nancy is no longer working with phones but she is a black hat hacker:

  1. Nancy injects false ARP packets into the network.
  2. These ARP packets say that the address 192.168.0.1 belongs to Nancy’s device with the following MAC address: 00-00-00-00-00-2A.
  3. The ARP cache stores false information associating IP 192.168.0.1 with MAC 00-00-00-00-00-2A.
  4. The next time your laptop is trying to connect to the internet, it connects to Nancy’s machine.
  5. Nancy’s machine connects to the router (00-00-00-00-00-01) and connects you to the internet, so you don’t even know that Nancy is there.

IP Spoofing (IP Address Spoofing)

IP spoofing means that a computer is pretending to have a different IP address – usually the same address as another machine. On its own, IP spoofing is not enough for a MITM attack. However, an attacker may combine it with TCP sequence prediction.

Most internet connections are established using TCP/IP (Transmission Control Protocol / Internet Protocol). When two devices on the network connect to one another using TCP/IP, they need to establish a session. They do it using a three-way handshake. During this process, they exchange information called sequence numbers. The sequence numbers are needed for the recipient to recognize further packets. Thanks to sequence numbers, the devices know the order in which they should put the received packets together.

In this situation, the attacker first sniffs the connection (listens in). This is very easy on a local network because all IP packets go into the network and may be read by any other device. The attacker learns the sequence numbers, predicts the next one, and sends a packet pretending to be the original sender. If that packet reaches the destination first, the attacker intercepts the connection.

A schematic of an ARP spoofing attack used in man-in-the-middle attacks

Let’s go back to Nancy who wants to try IP spoofing with TCP sequence prediction this time:

  1. Nancy joins your local network as 10.0.0.42 with her laptop and runs a sniffer. The sniffer software lets her see all the IP packets that go through the network.
  2. Nancy wants to intercept your connection to the gateway (10.0.0.1). She looks for packets between you (10.0.0.102) and the gateway and then predicts the sequence number.
  3. At the right moment, Nancy sends a packet from her laptop. The packet has the source address of the gateway (10.0.0.1) and the correct sequence number, so your laptop is fooled.
  4. At the same time, Nancy floods the real gateway with a DoS attack. The gateway works slower or stops working for a moment. Nancy’s packet reaches you before the packet from the gateway does.
  5. Nancy convinced your laptop that her laptop is the gateway. Now she convinces the gateway that her laptop is 10.0.0.102 (you), and the MITM attack is complete.

DNS Spoofing (DNS Cache Poisoning)

ARP spoofing and IP spoofing need the attacker to connect to the local network segment that you use. An attacker using DNS spoofing can be anywhere. It’s more difficult because your DNS cache must be vulnerable. However, if successful, it can affect a large number of victims.

DNS (Domain Name System) is the system used to translate between IP addresses and symbolic names like www.example.com. This system has two primary elements: nameservers (DNS servers) and resolvers (DNS caches). The nameserver is the source of authoritative information. Usually, there are two or three systems that keep that information for every domain. For example, the IP number for www.example.com is stored on two nameservers: sns.dns.icann.org and noc.dns.icann.org. You can check this using the Google DNS lookup tool.

If every client that wants to connect to www.example.com connected to these two servers every time, they would be overloaded. That is why every client uses its local resolver to cache information. If the cache does not have information on www.example.com, it contacts sns.dns.icann.org and noc.dns.icann.org to get 93.184.216.34. Then, it stores the IP address locally for some time. All the clients that use this resolver get the address from the cache.

A DNS spoofing attack is performed by injecting a fake entry into the local cache. If a black hat hacker does that, all clients connected to this cache get the wrong IP address and connect to the attacker instead. This lets the attacker become a man-in-the-middle.

A schematic of a DNS spoofing (DNS cache poisoning) attack

This time, Nancy cannot connect to your network so she tries DNS spoofing:

  1. Nancy knows, that you use 203.0.113.255 as your resolver (DNS cache).
  2. Nancy also knows that this resolver is vulnerable to poisoning (uses BIND 4 software).
  3. Nancy poisons BIND 4 at 203.0.113.255 and stores information that www.example.com is 198.51.100.123.
  4. When you type www.example.com in your browser, the site that you see is Nancy’s site.
  5. Nancy connects to the original site to complete the attack.

Other Methods Used to Intercept Connections

Black hat hackers may use many more methods to place themselves between the client and the server. These methods usually belong to one of the following three categories:

  • Server compromise: An attacker may use another technique to gain control over the server that you connect to. They can then place their own software on that server to intercept connections with you. For example, they may start with SQL Injection and escalate to full system compromise, then place MITM software on the compromised web server. They might also abuse a code injection vulnerability to place a shell on the server.
  • Client compromise: An attacker may place a rogue application such as a trojan on your machine (for example, man-in-the-browser). The application can listen in on all your connections and allow for MITM attacks. To do this, the attacker may get you to click a malicious link or may use another technique to have you download malware. They might, for example, perform a Cross-site Scripting attack on your favorite web application and place malicious JavaScript.
  • Communications compromise: An attacker may take over a machine that routes information between the client and the server. For example, a network router with vulnerable software or a public Wi-Fi hotspot. Black hat hackers may also place their own malicious Wi-Fi access point in your vicinity so that you connect to it. If your Wi-Fi network connection uses a vulnerable encryption protocol like WEP, you may be a target of Wi-Fi eavesdropping.

How Do Attackers Listen In?

If the victim uses a secure connection, being in the middle is not enough. Nancy must understand the language that Alice and Barbara are using (Lojban). She must also be able to speak it fluently and imitate Alice’s and Barbara’s voices. This is needed so that Alice and Barbara are still sure that they are talking to one another. Some of the techniques used for this in the IT world are HTTPS spoofing, SSL hijacking, and SSL stripping.

HTTPS Spoofing (IDN Homograph Attacks)

International domain names (IDNs) can contain Unicode characters. Some Unicode characters look similar to ASCII characters. Black hat hackers use this to fool victims. A victim visits a fake website controlled by the attacker who intercepts information and relays it to the real website.

An explanation of an HTTPS spoofing (IDN homograph) attack

For example, Nancy wants you to visit a fake Acunetix website аcunetix.com (the Cyrillic а looks exactly like the ASCII a):

  1. Nancy uses Punycode to register the domain аcunetix.com: xn--cunetix-1fg.com (you can try to create your own using Punycoder).
  2. Nancy buys a legitimate SSL/TLS certificate for аcunetix.com.
  3. Nancy sends you a malicious link to visit the fake Acunetix site.
  4. When you visit the site, you can see https and a lock symbol in the address bar so you are not alarmed.
  5. In the background, Nancy relays all the information sent by you to the real Acunetix site.

Current browsers (Chrome, Firefox, Opera, Internet Explorer, Edge, Safari) have protection against homograph attacks. For example, they display Punycode in the address bar instead of national characters. However, websites and emails may still contain links in Unicode that look exactly like originals.

SSL Hijacking

Anyone can generate an SSL/TLS certificate for any domain. An attacker who intercepts a connection can generate certificates for all domains that the victim visits. They can present these certificates to the victim, establish a connection with the original server, and relay the traffic. This is called SSL hijacking.

However, your browser trusts only certificates that are signed by a trusted Certificate Authority (CA). If the certificate is not signed by a trusted CA, browsers display clear warnings or even refuse to open a page. Therefore, an attacker needs a way to make your browser believe that the certificate can be trusted. To do it, they must add their CA to the trusted certificate store on your computer. This can be done using other attack vectors.

A schematic of an SSL hijacking attack

If Nancy wants to listen in on your SSL/TLS connections using SSL hijacking, this is what she does:

  1. Nancy gets you to download and install her CA certificate using some other type of attack.
  2. Every time you visit a secure site, for example, acunetix.com, Nancy intercepts the connection.
  3. Nancy generates a certificate for acunetix.com, signs it with her CA private key, and serves it back to you.
  4. Your browser trusts the certificate because Nancy’s CA public key is in your trusted store.
  5. Nancy establishes a connection with acunetix.com and relays all the SSL traffic through her system.

SSL hijacking is very often used for legitimate purposes. For example, malware protection software installed on your computer probably uses SSL hijacking. If not, the software would not be able to protect you when you try to download malware using a secure connection. Some companies use SSL hijacking to control traffic in their internal networks, for example, to check what content their employees are accessing. Parental control software also uses SSL hijacking.

SSL Stripping

When you type an address in your browser, your browser first connects to an insecure site (HTTP). Then, it is usually quickly redirected to the secure site (HTTPS). If the website is available without encryption, the attacker can intercept your packets and force an HTTP connection. If you don’t notice that your connection is unencrypted, you may expose secrets to the attacker. This technique is called SSL stripping.

A schematic of an SSL stripping attack

If Nancy wants to use SSL stripping to get your secrets:

  1. Nancy listens in on your connections to secure websites and intercepts them.
  2. Nancy modifies your initial web requests (they are sent using plain text). The server thinks that your browser is requesting to be served via HTTP.
  3. If the website is configured to serve content via HTTP, your data is sent in plain text and Nancy can read it.

Today, many websites use HTTP Strict Transport Security (HSTS) which means that the server refuses to provide content using an insecure connection. Such websites cannot be attacked using this method.

Other Methods Used for Eavesdropping

There are more methods used to compromise secure connections, including:

  • SSL/TSL vulnerabilities: Older versions of SSL/TLS protocols are vulnerable to attacks that let black hat hackers decrypt the data. For example, CRIME or BEAST attacks.
  • Session hijacking: If parts of the site are available via HTTP and other parts via HTTPS, an attacker may easily get the session cookie and impersonate the user. Session cookies may also be stolen if the website is vulnerable to Cross-site Scripting.

How To Detect and Prevent a Man-in-the-Middle Attack

There are many types of man-in-the-middle attacks and some of them very difficult to detect. The key to preventing them is to have as little trust as possible.

It is more difficult to prevent interception. If the attacker is able to access your network directly, if they compromise the destination server, or if they control network equipment that is used for your connection, there is not much that you can do. What you can do in such cases is choose a different communication route or make sure that encryption is unbreakable.

Here are some basic tips that may help you:

  • Patch your system and use renowned anti-malware software.
  • Don’t use public networks and/or hotspots for any sensitive activities.
  • When connecting to your Wi-Fi, check if you are not connecting to a network with a similar name.
  • Don’t forget to check the browser address bar and make sure you are using a secure connection.
  • Click the lock symbol next to the address bar to get more information about the certificate.
  • Install add-ons that help you detect SSL hijacking, for example, CheckMyHTTPS.
  • Never send any sensitive information via email and do not trust any emails with sensitive information.
  • Set up two-factor authentication wherever you can. Even if an attacker intercepts your data, they will have a hard time getting control of your Android or iPhone as well.

Does SSL Protect Against Man-in-the-Middle Attacks?

Some sources may say that SSL/TLS is enough to protect against MITM attacks. This is not true for the following reasons:

  • The weakest link in a MITM attack is often the human. For example, if you don’t monitor the lock symbol on your browser address bar, you will easily fall for an HTTP stripping attack.
  • Older versions of SSL/TLS may be vulnerable to MITM attacks. If the client or the server uses an older version of SSL/TLS, the attacker may be able to break the encryption.
  • If the attacker compromises your computer or the server, they may tap the communication before it is encrypted or after it is decrypted.
  • In the case of email, connections to servers may be encrypted but it is not as common as in the case of web connections. Also, email is stored on the server and often sent between servers in plain text.

How to Prevent MITM Attacks Against My Website?

Man-in-the-middle attacks are often facilitated by websites, even if your client and connection are safe. If you own a website, make sure that you regularly scan it for vulnerabilities, for example, using the Acunetix web vulnerability scanner (click here for a demo version). If you don’t, some vulnerabilities such as SQL Injection or code injection may let someone install malicious software on your web server. In addition, the Acunetix scanner also checks for SSL/TLS vulnerabilities that might let the attacker eavesdrop on connections to your web server, for example, CRIME, BREACH, and POODLE.

          Session: Star Wars: Imperial Assault:: The Life and Times of an Imperial Officer :: Incoming - Spoilers Within      Cache   Translate Page      

by drmiller32

“The Life and Times of an Imperial Officer. Now that is a title I have not heard in a long time. A long time.” ~Obi Wan Kenobi. Probably.

It has been a very long time since I have posted. About four months now. There is some reason for this, and I will spell that out at the end. I was so proud of myself for being caught up, too! Oh well.

Last mission we played was Sympathy for the Rebellion. That turned out to be our best mission yet. The tension was high, Darth Vader came out, everyone screamed and was excited. Even though he didn’t get to do anything, it was still an awesome moment.

In the custom story I make to tie everything together, the data files collected during Fly Solo were sent to Raydonia, where they are being decrypted. But of course, the Empire knows all:

“Team,

We intercepted a transmission in Imperial space that has given us great concern. We were only able to translate a portion of the message, and it appears below:

“… loc…ase that …Weiss...ovince of Hilli… Rayd…recov… pla…code…estroy the... Use any means … Comm… learn that … not tolera... Do …fail me.

…, Lo…der. Setti..headi…onia... “

The entire context of the message is not overly clear, but we believe this can be interpreted to suggest that your mission is compromised. You must hurry up and collect the data files, even if the work is not complete. We cannot risk jeopardizing this information.

Admiral Akbar,
Home One”

The rebels arrive to Raydonia to find the base destroyed. Their shuttle was shot down, and they have to race through the woods to escape. The stumble upon an old temple that they recall has a secret passage under it, which would allow them to escape.

In a nutshell, there are four terminals, two of which, if both are activated (3 mechanics or insight), reveals a heavy door that they can test strength (3) against to open. If an Imperial is next to a terminal, they get -1~. The empire wins if all heroes are wounded. The rebels win if they escape.

I really wanted to win this game because I liked the story arc for the losing side. I told myself I would not take it easy. We shall see.

This is one of those missions where it says “The mission will progress when” the rebels enter the corridor. So, being the veterans they are, they waited until the end of the first round to enter, but got themselves into position. Smart rebels. I ran a storm trooper into the temple to ensure I could bombard as I wanted.

In the second round, Mak ran to the south east terminal. I had soldiers near her that tore her up pretty good. Jyn went to the north west and Gideon went to the south west. Gaarkhan just murdered things.

Round and round went by and they failed miserably at the tests. The -1~ really screwed them over. I kept bombarding the exterior of the building to get more spawn points and do some selective damage. By the fifth round, they finally got the two terminals discovered, but at this point three of the four were wounded. The heavy door was revealed to them, but things were looking bleak. Gaarkhan took a crack at it and got two successes, but that was the end of round 6, and Mak was KIA. Time to bombard. Jyn, the last healthy rebel, was in my line of sight.

Of course, I bombarded her, right? Obviously. The game is over and the Emperor would be pleased.

But no, I decided not to. I decided that I would bombard somewhere else, and let the Force decide. They would get one last crack at the heavy door before I murdered Jyn via storm troopers. And they succeeded.

Yes, the soft Empire gave them a chance at victory and they pulled it off. I was happy for them, but a little sad for me. I told myself it was ok, the finale is really all that matters. Right?

Though, if I really think about it, I think I won. I had them dead to rights and I know that I won that mission, and by being benevolent and giving them an extra shot, they won, were happy, and therefore I won. It really came down to that last dice roll. They still had to get the surge they needed. The Force was with them.

“Alliance Operatives,

It is sad and disappointing news to hear that the Empire has captured our facilities on Raydonia. Vetting and setting up a base is a resource and time intensive endeavor. The loss of life that we suffered...and the loss of the plans that Captain Solo obtained are significant set backs.

That said, Alliance Command is very thankful that you all survived. Mak is in a bacta tank recovering from his injuries, and should be up and running in no time. Your reports sounds like it was a harrowing situation. I am still a little unclear how you managed to get out of the ruins through a secret passage while you were still surrounded by Imperial forces.

The equipment and personnel that we were able to recover from Raydonia are amassing near a remote system known as Hoth. Command will set up on this planet and establish a base. We hope it is far off the Empire's radar.

Meanwhile, you are being given some time to yourselves and then you will be reassigned to Luke Skywalker. He is back on Tatooine. He reported that, prior to the last run in with Darth Vader, he had some promising contacts with some potential pilots that might be interested in joining us. Local pod racing friends that he used to race through Beggars' Canyon, I believe he said. Commander Skywalker is a formidable pilot, and if he believes that these friends of his are of good quality, we need to try.

Join Commander Skywalker on Tatooine after the holidays. Spend time with your families, if you have them. We are hoping that the Empire will assume that we would not return to a previous ambush location. Let's hope that we are right.

May the Force be Merry with you.

Gial Akbar,
Admiral, Home One”



That holiday referenced was Christmas 2018. This game was about two weeks before that. I believe in an early session report I had said that four of the five of us worked together at a research facility IRL. Well, in 2017 Gaarkhan was called in for a random drug test, which we didn’t normally do, so someone reported her as “suspicious.” She passed because she doesn’t do drugs, but as a 22 year old at your first real job you could imagine that that takes a toll. Anyway, just before New Years 2018, I got a text from her saying she couldn’t play with us anymore because she found out that I was the one that turned her in. Hopefully needless to say, this isn’t true. I invited her to join us for a yearlong board game campaign; I don’t think someone who has something against someone does that. Also, I got her this job and mentored her, so tearing her career down doesn't make sense. But people will believe what they want. I am not sure which sleaze ball lied and ruined our friendship, but we were without a Wookie. The silence and also putting off playing for a while was because the wind was stolen from my sail for this game.

But randomly, one of my friends with which I worked with at Ohio State University returned from an 8 month long trip around the world. We had dinner and somehow board games came up and she was asking me about them and thought they sounded amazing. We had her over to play Betrayal at House on the Hill as a test run and she loved it. Then she came back for some Mansions of Madness 2nd ed. Now, she decided she would be our new Wookie. But this Wookie is a gluten-free vegan, so I am not certain how her people will handle this news. Can a Wookie be vegan? Ours is.

As a warm up game because it had been like three months and we have a new Gaarkhan, we decided to play Captured anyway. Since that is the story arc I wanted to play, I guess I won a third time. I will capture that tale in the next session report, though the outcome of it will have no bearing on our campaign.

Till next time, Glory to the Empire!

EXCERPTS ABOUT JAM SKATING
These excerpts are given in no particular order and are numbered for referencing purposes only.

Excerpt #1
From https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jam_skating
"Jam skating (or Jamskating) is a combination of dance, gymnastics, and roller skating, performed on roller skates.[1] The origins of jam skating are disputed, but it is often traced to the Great Lakes region and Florida. The style has its roots in traditional roller disco, but has been greatly influenced by breakdancing, artistic skating, gymnastics, and modern dance.[2] Successful jam skaters are well practiced in these different forms and must have the ability to translate these movements while on skates. Jam skating first became popular in the early 1990s and is still going strong throughout the nation.... Jam Skating, like breakdancing in its early evolution, was an almost underground movement fueled by teenagers and skaters in their early 20s. Events were created to allow Jam Skaters to meet, trade moves, and, most importantly, "battle". Battling and performing remain a very important aspect of Jam Skating. This element pushes the boundaries of what is possible to perform while on skates; moreover, it ignites evolution within the skate culture.

[...]

Jam skating is neither aggressive nor speed skating. This form of freestyle skating is referred to by many different names: toe-dancing, spot-skating, shuffle skating, hexing, rexxing, trucking, shadow skating, crazy leg, boogie bouncing, and disco skating. These names strictly describe the style of skating, not the moves.

[...]

Skating equipment
Traditionally, roller disco skaters wore an artistic high-cut boot with toe stop. In the early 1980s, this transitioned into a trend of wearing low-cut speed skate boots with jam plugs in place of the toe stops. This trend continues today, as the low-cut boot allows for more agility with feet while skating.

[...]

Movies
The 2005 film Roll Bounce prominently featured jam skating, along with some well-known skaters within the jam skating community.[3]

The 2006 film ATL was centered around a skating rink in Atlanta, GA called Cascade.[4]"....

Excerpt #2
From http://www.blacdetroit.com/BLAC-Detroit/September-2017/Detroits-integral-role-in-roller-skating-culture/ "Detroit's integral role in roller skating culture"
The past, present and (hopefully) rockin’ future of Detroit’s skate scene
by CORNELIUS FORTUNE, September 2017
"As a boy growing up in Black Bottom during the early ’60s, Richard Houston enjoyed Saturday matinees at the Arcadia Ballroom on Woodward – but it was roller skating that kept him out of trouble. He laced up his skates and found an entirely new world to explore – and has never looked back.

Now, at the age of 66, Houston, known as Rockin’ Richard Houston, is a world-renowned skater. The retired postman and Air Force vet has been called “The Godfather of Skating.” Houston is part of a collective in Detroit devoted to what is called The National Skate Scene, which has people from around the world meeting up to skate after hours, usually between 10 p.m. and 4 a.m. These adult skate parties serve as a haven for lovers of roller skating. Not only that, but it’s a time when the “skate family” gets together for a reunion of sorts. These parties have included vendors, entertainment, dance events and other activities – happening here both here and, on a much larger scale, in cities like Atlanta and Chicago.

Roller skating in Detroit has remained a vibrant touchstone, particularly among the black community, and the city’s contribution to this movement on skates is what Houston hopes to highlight in his memoir, The Motown Sound on Wheels, set to release later this year. He wrote it not only as a historical document and point of reflection but as a love letter to the skating world that has been his passion.

[...]

New Yorker John Perkins, an associate, decided to take [Joi] Lofton’s connection to the skate world and rink owners to another level and came up with Sk8-A-Thon, an event that invited skaters from around the world in 1996. Although Lofton and Perkins went their separate ways, Lofton decided to rebrand the event, calling it Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon.

“It’s definitely international,” she says. “We have skaters here from Canada, London, Holland, Germany, Japan – those are the five countries I know of. It’s been the largest skating event in the country. The skating goes to 5 or 6 in the morning.”

Held Labor Day weekend, Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon is a passion project for its organizer. Yet, after 22 years, planning the event hasn’t gotten easier. It takes eight months to iron out the details each year.

[...]

Detroit’s Soul Skate
Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon might be the largest skating party on the national scene, but Detroit’s own Soul Skate runs a close second. Similarly, people travel from all over the world to celebrate roller skating in an afterhours adult setting. Soul Skate, a bi-annual event (the next one takes place in 2018 during Memorial Day weekend) draws thousands to Detroit.

[...]

Expanding the community
How do thousands of skaters from around the world – including Detroit – find out about adult skate parties such as Joi’s Sk8-A-Thon, Soul Skate and others?

When skaters want to know where the national parties are, they congregate on social media. But one website serves as the main informational source: skategroove.com. Before this go-to site, there was rollerskate.net – co-developed by avid skater Kevin Williams. Williams, another native Detroiter, has been involved in the skating scene since its inception. He moved to Los Angeles for a time and eventually hosted some roller skating parties in Southern California.

“We developed a website and we advertised this party and connected with roller skaters from all over the world,” Williams says. “About 2,000 people came – they came from Sweden, Switzerland, Mexico, Canada, Japan and all over the United States. It was an awesome roller skating party. It was absolutely amazing. From that, the party kept building, Joi’s kept building.”

[...]

Skating History Tidbits
Roller skating was embraced in the post-Civil War era by the upper class, who wore tuxedos and evening gowns while skating.

It gained popularity in the early 20th century after labor laws allowed people more free time.

The Great Depression took a toll on skating, since limited resources made it difficult to maintain large rinks.

The disco era was its heyday: The songs of that time were perfect for bouncing and rolling to the beat.

Economic downturn in the ’80s hit the recreation again.

Its popularity has been lifted in recent years thanks to inline skating and the resurgence of roller derby leagues.

Excerpt #3
From https://www.hbo.com/documentaries/united-skates/about United Skates [2019 documentary about jam skating]
"For years, roller-skating rinks have been a constant for African-American communities across the U.S., serving as a meeting ground, a place to have fun and an incubator of iconic hip-hop talents like Queen Latifah and N.W.A.

As America’s last standing roller rinks are threatened with closure, a community joins forces in a racially charged environment to save the underground African-American subculture of roller skating, which has been overlooked by the mainstream for generations – yet has given rise to some of the world's greatest musical talents.

From executive producer John Legend and first-time directors Dyana Winkler and Tina Brown, the documentary United Skates highlights the dynamic world of roller skating, showcasing African-American rinks and skaters across the country as they fight to keep the culture alive and skate their hearts out...

[...]

Adult nights have become skating parties marked by incredible moves and music. Reggie, who says skating brought him “community [and] a sense of culture,” is disappointed that his local rink provides neither. In fact, none of the 14 rinks in North Carolina have an adult night. Hoping to start his own, Reggie meets with an owner receptive to the idea of bringing in new clientele.

[...]

Meanwhile, the L.A. skating community mourns the closure of Skate Depot, its last remaining rink, extending the wave of rink closings across the country in the wake of rezoning laws and increased land values in urban areas.

In L.A., during the height of gang violence in the ‘80s and ‘90s, the roller rink served as neutral ground when the Crips and Bloods had to share the World on Wheels rink. In 2013, this safe space closed, despite the community’s best efforts to keep it open. After hearing of Skate Depot’s impending closing, Phelicia and her family are feeling its loss. After driving hours to another rink, Phelicia gets into a heated argument with an employee who claims their custom wheels violate rink rules.

As local rinks shutter, annual national skating events take on even greater importance. At Independence Roll, hosted by Rich City Skate, skaters across the U.S. represent their cities’ varied skating styles. The result is an unforgettable night of joy, tempered by Rich City’s pending future."...

          New Titleist Pro V1 & Pro V1x Now Available in High Optic Yellow      Cache   Translate Page      



As a golfer, it's important to play the best golf ball for your game. At Titleist, we believe that performance is the most critical consideration in choosing a ball - the combination of distance, flight and short game control that helps you to shoot your lowest scores possible. But we also understand that player preferences (considerations like price, feel, and color) factor largely in this decision. So in response to the growing demand from members of Team Titleist and golfers around the world, we're excited to announce that for the first time ever, Pro V1 and Pro V1x, the best performing, highest quality golf balls in the game, are now available in a new color option – High Optic Yellow.

Following a successful seeding and validation period on the PGA Tour, the new 2019 Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow golf balls will be available in golf shops this week – beginning Friday, March 15.

Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow are also available for personalization through My Titleist on Titleist.com.

• • •

 PRO V1 YELLOW ON TOUR

Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow first appeared on the PGA Tour in late January at the Waste Management Open, where Bubba Watson put a 2019 Pro V1x Yellow immediately in play.

“I’m loving the new Pro V1x Yellow. When the R&D guys sent me the first batch of them for testing, I couldn’t wait to get them in play,” said Watson, who currently leads the PGA Tour’s average driving distance category at 318.5 yards. “I played some really good golf with the [prior generation] Pro V1x, but it’s clear the 2019 ball is even better. It’s faster, I can work the ball exactly how I want, and the short game performance is as good as ever. The ball feels great, plus there’s just something about that bright yellow finish where I feel like I can see it better. For me it was a no-brainer.”

This past Sunday, Kirk Triplett, playing Pro V1x Yellow, eagled the second hole of a sudden-death playoff to win the PGA Tour Champions’ Hoag Classic, marking the first victory for a Pro V1 or Pro V1x Yellow golf ball on the worldwide professional tours.

Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow models have also been played on the PGA Tour by Kyle Jones (Pro V1x) and Rory Sabbatini (Pro V1x), on the Web.Com Tour by Scott Gutschewski (Pro V1) and Zac Blair (Pro V1x), and on PGA Tour Champions by Mark Calcavecchia (Pro V1x) and Ken Tanigawa (Pro V1).

 NEW LOOK, SAME UNMATCHED PERFORMANCE

Faster from core to cover, new Pro V1 and Pro V1x Yellow have been precisely engineered to deliver the same performance improvements as their traditional white 2019 counterparts – delivering more ball speed and lower long game spin for more distance, while retaining the consistent flight, Drop-and-Stop short game control, soft feel and long-lasting durability that golfers depend on.

Pro V1 provides optimal flight and spin for most golfers, flying lower than Pro V1x with a penetrating trajectory, with very soft feel. Pro V1x flies higher, spins more on iron shots and has a slightly firmer feel. Click here for full details.

 WHAT TEAM TITLEIST MEMBERS ARE SAYING

"I have been asking about a yellow Pro V1 for years now. And it's finally here! I cannot wait to get my hands on a yellow Pro V1x and tee it up! I've been using the yellow offerings by Titleist for a while now (NXT Tour S, DT Solo) and have discovered that they're so much easier to see than the white golf balls. Thanks so much Titleist!"

- NoleIn SC, Team Titleist Member

I'm interested in trying them during some very early morning rounds when the sun is still rising. Also, during those evening rounds when the sun is setting and I'm fighting the sunlight.

- David ARK, Team Titleist Member

"I have been playing yellow golf balls for years. As I’ve gotten older my vision has changed and the yellow ball is easier to focus on and easier to find, especially in the fall when Bermuda grass is dormant and brown. I can’t wait to play the best ball on the market in yellow."

- WHigginbotham, Team Titleist Member

"Can't wait to get my eyes on a box of these new optic yellow Pro V's. Increased focus and concentration should translate to more consistency in the Impact Zone! This then should result in improved performance and lower scores. Thank you, Titleist!"

- Mark S, Team Titleist Member

Regardless of the industry, content marketing has long since been touted as one of the key differentiators to a company's long-term success. After all, it's one thing to have a great product or offering, but it's another to have a great product or offering that is effectively packaged to the masses from a trusted company that seems to have everyone's attention. But when it comes to establishing credibility, generating positive hype and growing your brand and business, what is the name of the game? We place so much emphasis on content marketing — and rightfully so — but what style of content and what method of delivery will play the most integral role in getting a company from point A to point B? What will move the needle the most, and most effectively translate the value proposition of a company (and those who run it) to current and prospective customers? We also must consider the current economic climate, where consumer trust is notoriously hard to earn — and far too easy to lose. Media has become the least-trusted institution. But if content represents the conduit to which brands can connect with their audience, how can companies shift past media distrust to establish their brand or offering as a trusted source? It's within this discussion that we realize the importance of thought leadership. What exactly is a thought leader?
          Five imperatives for revenue-focused marketers      Cache   Translate Page      

Fast-forward 30 years, and today B2B marketing is all about revenue. A campaign is only a success if it makes a measurable impact on the bottom line.

This is especially true in growing businesses where budgets are smaller and there’s nowhere to hide.

If you aren’t demonstrating the value of your department at the highest level, then you won’t secure the vital budget you need to grow.

This is an open secret but a lot of businesses are still struggling to tie marketing effort to sales dollars. There’s a simple reason for this – traditional B2B marketing tactics, processes and metrics were never developed with revenue in mind. And most businesses still rely on them.

It’s common for marketing departments to measure their success in clicks, likes and page views – metrics that don’t translate easily into dollars. Equally, it’s rare for marketers to track the impact of their efforts past lead handover, meaning they have a patchy understanding of how their work actually impacts sales.

Shifting focus to revenue generation demands a whole new approach – new tactics, new metrics and data-driven strategies.

          Red Bull Arts Detroit Announces 2019 Exhibitions and Public Programs      Cache   Translate Page      

Red Bull Arts Detroit is announcing a calendar of free public programming for the year, initiating new series of readings, screenings, and discussions to accompany the 2019 fellowship and residency cycle. Red Bull Arts Detroit's public programs are anchored by quarterly exhibitions featuring the work of resident artists and curators, and will be supplemented with four new initiatives: Viewfinder, The Slideshow Series, Reading Room, and Offsite Programs & Partnerships. The roster of public programs will additionally be joined by the work completed by recipients of Red Bull Arts Detroit's Micro-Grant Program, a need-base initiative committed to the support and development of the Detroit arts community by providing financial resources for local artists.

The public programs welcome artistic and institutional partnerships for Red Bull Arts Detroit, including an ongoing friendship with the Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit (MOCAD), and the creation of the Red Bull Arts Detroit Global Curatorial Initiative, a new curatorial partnership and expansion of EXPO CHICAGO's Curatorial Exchange program.

"Red Bull Arts Detroit has expanded its toolkit to celebrate all aspects of Detroit's thriving arts community," says Matthew Eaton, Red Bull Arts Detroit Program Manager. "Detroit is a breeding ground for creativity, and with our new public programs, we hope to find new ways with which a global community can engage with the particularities of a place. At Red Bull Arts Detroit, we embrace our locale and its history, but we also recognize that it doesn't prevent us from participating in a global dialogue, it gives us perspective."

The Artist Residency program has always been central to Red Bull Arts Detroit's commitment to the needs of emerging and established artists, providing artists the space, time, and resources necessary to push their practices forward. Three times a year, artists at different stages of their careers are brought to Detroit for a three-month residency at Red Bull Arts Detroit. They are provided housing, studio space, and a $12,000 stipend. Over the course of the residency, artists engage with the local arts community and create new bodies of work for exhibition. The first resident exhibition will be on view from April 12-June 2, and will feature work made by Patrick Quarm, Miatta Kawinzi, and Tiff Massey during their residency cycle; the second resident exhibition will open during Detroit Art Week, and will be on view June 19-August 30, featuring resident artists Kearra Amaya Gopee, Pamela Council, and Claire Lachow; and the third and final resident exhibition will be on view November 22 to early 2020, and will feature residents Holly Bass, Hui Ying Tsai, and Michael Polakowski.

Red Bull Arts Detroit is committed to enriching the arts in Detroit, and nationwide. As such, it is necessary to support the network of curatorial practices which connect local community to the international art world. This year, Red Bull Arts Detroit launched their Curatorial Fellowship, which offers independent curators a flexible way to engage with the arts community in Detroit. The Curatorial Fellowship invites a curator for ten monthly visits to research, conceptualize, develop, and execute a contemporary art exhibition in Detroit. The Fellow receives financial, production, and marketing support in the execution of their curatorial project, and access to the 12,000 square foot gallery on-site for the project. Travel, accommodations, and a $10,000 stipend are provided. From September 20-November 2, Red Bull Arts Detroit's 2019 Curatorial Fellow Taraneh Fazeli will present the next iteration of her ongoing project Sick Time, Sleepy Time, Crip Time: Against Capitalism's Temporal Bullying, an investigation into social and embodied learning around the politics of health, and how care for the body in states of debility and disability can help us re-imagine collective structures for support.

Viewfinder is a recurring series of dialogues with the Resident Artists at Red Bull Arts Detroit. Three times annually, Red Bull Arts Detroit welcomes a group of three artists to participate in the Residency program, where they share a studio and living space. The Residents are chosen on their own merit, but often within the groups commonalities exist or emerge from the proximity of the Residency. The Viewfinder series introduces the work and practices of the Residents and opens a conversation amongst the group based on these points of convergence and interaction. These talks can be wide-ranging in nature and provide context to our audience on the Artist's practice in advance of their group exhibition at the culmination of the Residency. Red Bull Arts Detroit invites the public to join us in conversation with their Residents about the ideas and practices at work in their studio. The first Viewfinder was held on February 21, and featured a conversation between Resident Artists Miatta Kawinzi, Tiff Massey, and Patrick Quarm, moderated by Michael Stone Richards, a Detroit-based scholar on biopolitics and African diasporic cultural theory.

The Slideshow Series is a programming format shared between Red Bull Arts Detroit and New York that invites artists, curators, community activists, technologists, scholars, musicians and others, to present an area of interest or expertise. Employing the customary format of the slideshow as an educational tool to share ideas with an audience, Red Bull Arts Detroit asks each participant to rethink how they can best engage the public on a topic of importance to them, and to consider how the shape of that presentation has the potential to ignite dialogue. Slideshows are intimate in nature and take the form of performative lectures, research presentation, poetry readings, sound performances and more.

The first three Slideshow Series are Creative Choice Making Embodied with John Michael Schert (March 14), a choreographic exploration of how artists can mobilize systemic change in their organizations, communities and cities; "Practicing for the Not Yet" with Laura Raicovich (April 16), a presentation on how the myth of neutrality manifests in cultural institutions and museums; and Sugar or Salt In Your Grit with Marcellus Armstrong (May 12), a performative lecture incorporating communally shared brunch, personality quizzes, and various examples of how narratives and archetypes can be easily commodified within today's visual culture.

The Red Bull Arts Detroit Reading Room series invites artists, writers, curators, community organizers, scholars, and more to present on a text of particular importance to them. Red Bull Arts Detroit asks the presenter to bring the text to a public who might have never encountered it before, and to find a way to translate the importance or meaning of the work to the audience. Following the presentation, the text will be added to the permanent collection of the Red Bull Arts Detroit Library, alongside an artifact created by the presenter. The first Reading Room session will be held on April 23 with presenter Carleton Gholz, Founder and Executive Director of Detroit Sound Conservancy.

Building upon a pilot program initiated in 2013 by EXPO CHICAGO, the Cultural Services of the French Embassy in Chicago and the Institut français, EXPO CHICAGO officially launched the Curatorial Exchange program, an unprecedented international initiative developed by the exposition in partnership with foreign consulates and cultural agencies. The Curatorial Exchange offers a select group of mid-career and established curators based around the world the opportunity to engage closely with their peers, convening as part of a four-day program, including access to exhibitions, top private collections, artist studios, museums and institutions.

Over the four day program, invited curators had the opportunity to engage with the more than 135 international exhibitors and organizations participating in EXPO CHICAGO, fostering new insights on gallery programs and artists' practices from around the world. In 2019, the Curatorial Exchange will include a group of international curators practicing/working/based in countries including Canada, France, Italy, the Netherlands, and South Africa.

This year, EXPO CHICAGO is expanding upon the Curatorial Exchange program, by introducing the inaugural Red Bull Arts Detroit Global Curatorial Initiative, a multi-city, fully funded curatorial initiative taking place surrounding the eighth annual exposition (September 18 - 23, 2019). Conceived as a two-part professionalization and cultural immersion program engaging Chicago and Detroit, the fellowship provides 2-4 international curators the opportunity to participate in EXPO CHICAGO's 2019 Curatorial Exchange program, followed by the opportunity to visit Detroit and engage the city's artists, galleries and institutions. The program, supported by Detroit-based Red Bull Arts alongside EXPO CHICAGO's consular partners, places an emphasis on the artistic and cultural contexts of both Chicago and Detroit. The program will allow the exposition to expand its reach, securing a more in-depth opportunity for dialogue between global cultures and the Midwest.

Red Bull Arts Detroit is also excited to continue and strengthen its friendship with the Museum of Contemporary Arts Detroit (MOCAD), a non-collecting contemporary art museum located in Detroit's cultural center, dedicated to showcasing the most visionary achievements in contemporary visual, literary, music and performing arts. Currently, two of MOCAD's exhibition feature past and present Red Bull Arts Detroit Resident Artists: 2018 Resident Joiri Minaya is included in Parallels and Peripheries, curated by MOCAD's Senior Curator Larry Ossei-Mensah, and 2019 Resident Tiff Massey is included in Useless Utility, curated by MOCAD's Ford Curatorial Fellow Jova Lynne. In October of 2018, on the occasion of MOCAD's exhibition Standing Still, Lying Down, As If, MOCAD and Red Bull Arts Detroit jointly curated two off-site public art installations by artists Iman Raad and Mieke Gerritzen, which are currently on view through the spring of 2019. Throughout the year, MOCAD and Red Bull Arts Detroit will continue to develop a dialogue between the two institutions, and will collaborate on select exhibition tours and events in celebration of each program's creative endeavors.

Red Bull Arts Detroit is committed to the support and development of the Detroit arts community. As such, we're dedicated to providing financial resources for local artists. Our Micro-Grant Program is designed to enable artists at all stages of their careers with the ability to continue their practices. This hyperlocal, need-based program provides direct support to local artists in the form of $1,000 grants given regularly throughout the year.

Red Bull Arts Detroit's January 2019 Micro-Grant Winners are Rashaun Rucker and Sarah Blanchette, and the February 2019 Winner is Arturo Herrera and his project Barbed Magazine. On April 27, Red Bull Arts Detroit will host a launch party for Barbed Magazine Issue 7.

Red Bull Arts Detroit is an experimental, non-commercial arts space offering an artist residency, curatorial and writing fellowships, and local micro-grants. With physical locations in New York and Detroit, Red Bull Arts focuses on extending the boundaries of exhibition making; supporting the production of new work by emerging and established artists; participating in and responding to the needs of local arts communities; and contributing to ongoing dialogue around contemporary issues and thought. The organization is dedicated to the cultivation and advancement of the arts.

          Jack Kelley on “Nephilim Skeletons Found?”      Cache   Translate Page      

The “Ask a Bible Teacher” section of the “Grace Thru Faith” website for June 4th, 2006 AD featured the question, “Nephilim Skeletons Found?” which was answered by Jack Kelley.

For some related info, see my books (on which I am offering a money saving deal:

sss5.jpg

The full question is:

Since there were Nephilim or Giants in those days, do we have skeletal remains of these beings? If we do why are they not in the public eye like Dinosaurs?

The answer begins with, “Google ‘Nephilim Skeletons’ and you’ll find that some folks believe that many have been discovered.” I am unsure why he is advertising for Google but the key term is “believe.”
He adds that “The reason they’re not on display as such is because the idea of angels having sex with women is repugnant to a lot of people and the world at large both inside and outside the church is in denial about the whole issue.” I will add that the reason they are not on display as such is because none have likely ever been found. The last of the Nephilim died in the flood (there is no such thing as post-flood Nephilim) so if any were found, they would be in some or another flood sediment layer.

He also notes that “The main line church” has taken on the view that Genesis 6’s “sons of God” were Sethites and “daughters of men” were Cainites. However, the original, traditional and majority view amongst the earliest Jews and Christians is the Angel view.

Kelley notes, “As one commentator wryly put it, ‘The children of a marriage between a believer and a non-believer may act like monsters, but they’re not super-natural giants.’” This may be clever but there are a few problems with it:
1. The term “giants” is generic.
2. Hebrew males of biblical times averaged 5.5 ft. (so women averaged less).
3. The English word “giant(s)” has been used to pseudo-translate both the pre-flood “Nephilim” and post-flood “Rephaim” between which there is no relation so this causes the problem of people chasing the English word around the Bible and connecting things that the Hebrew text never connects.

Lastly, he notes that “Only recently has the thought of a hybrid race taking control of Earth and necessitating the destruction of all mankind in a universal flood gained any traction even among Evangelicals.” This is good news since it is the ancient view and works better with the immediate and greater context (such as Jude and 2 Peter 2).

          What Does the Bible Really Say About Women in Leadership?      Cache   Translate Page      

In honor of March being Women's History Month, I am here presenting a sampling of women in the Bible who functioned in all kinds of leadership roles. My motive in presenting this is twofold: First of all, I pray that it will affirm those women who sense a call of God but are hampered by doctrinal questions about the validity of such a call. Secondly, I hope to influence others to rethink their theology that puts restraints on the ministry of women in the church. I am convinced that we will not see the great spiritual awakening for which many are praying apart from the full participation of the female members of Christ's body.

Deborah: Prophetess and Judge

Before the institution of the monarchy beginning with Saul, Israel was ruled by a series of judges. Perhaps the most celebrated of these judges was a woman named Deborah, who is referred to as both a prophetess and a judge. In other words, she exercised both spiritual and civil authority. She had such respect from the people that even the military commander, Barak, refused to go out to battle unless she accompanied him. She accompanied him to battle, and God gave them a great victory over the Canaanites.

Deborah had a husband named Lapiodoth, but he is mentioned only in passing. She was obviously the one called of God to be the out-front leader and deliverer of Israel at that time in history. There is not the slightest hint that her example was out of order or even exceptional.

The Assemblies of God is, therefore, correct when, in its official position paper on women, it says, "The instances of women filling leadership roles in the Bible should be taken as divinely approved pattern, not as exceptions to divine decrees."

Miriam: God-Sent Leader to Israel

In Micah 6:4b, God speaks through the prophet and says, "I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam." Of the three leaders God sent to bring Israel out of Egypt, one of them was a woman. Note that in this passage God says, "I sent." The word "apostle" literally means "sent one," which means that Miriam, along with Moses and Aaron, were the "apostles" sent by God to bring deliverance to Israel.

This is confirmed by the Septuagint, which uses the word ekapisteila, the verb form of apostolos with the prefix ek, meaning "out." It literally means "sent out." Miriam was "sent out" by God along with Moses and Aaron. Could it be that that God is still calling and "sending out" women today? Will the church be open to receiving these women?

Mary Magdalene: Apostle to the Apostles

Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene after His resurrection. The emphasis that the Gospel writers give to this fact make it clear that this was no chance or accidental appearance, but that Jesus appeared first to Mary in order to make a statement.

We must remember that in the first century, neither Roman nor Jewish courts of law would allow the testimony of a woman as evidence. Jesus confronts this cultural bias head-on by appearing first to Mary and sending her to bear testimony to the most significant event of human history. He could have just as easily appeared first to the men, but he required that they hear the news of His resurrection for the first time from the lips of a woman.

His words to Mary, Go and tell . . . identify her as a "sent one" who receives the first apostolic commission from the risen Lord to go and proclaim the Good News of His resurrection. This is why, throughout history, Mary has often been referred to as "the apostle to the apostles."

My father was converted as a result of a young "Mary" (her actual name) responding to the voice of the Lord to "go and tell," who began conducting revival meetings in southeastern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas. I have no doubt that there are a host of Marys in the world today who are hearing the voice the Lord instructing them to "go and tell."

Phoebe: Minister and Church Leader

In Romans 16:1b, Paul refers to Phoebe as "a servant of the church in Cenchrea." The word "servant" in this passage is translated from the Greek word diakonos, which literally means "servant," but was used as a general designation for Christian leaders.

For example, in 1 Corinthians 3:5a, where Paul says, "Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed?" "ministers" is a translation of diakonos. Where diakonos was used of men, the translators chose to translate it as "ministers," but where it was used of a woman, they chose to translate it as "servant." Phoebe was, therefore, a "minister" and leader in the church in Cenchrea.

Paul also said that Phoebe had been a "helper of many and of myself as well" (Rom. 16:1b).It is unfortunate that some translators have translated the Greek word prostatis as "helper," for it appears to be another case of translator bias. The word is feminine and literally means "to stand before."

Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon defines a prostatis as "a woman set over others; a female guardian, protectress, patroness, caring for the affairs of others and aiding them with her resources." In other words, a prostatis had all the characteristics that we would expect in a modern-day pastor.

This word prostatis identifies Phoebe as a leader from the church in Cenchrea who has Paul's respect. Not only does her refer to her as a diakonos and a prostatis, but he instructs the church in Rome to receive her with respect and to assist her in whatever business she has with them (Hyatt, Paul, Women and Church, 28).

Does the church today show respect to the Phoebes who are in her midst?

Priscilla: Pastor and Co-Worker with Paul

When Paul mentions Priscilla and Aquilla, he always mentions them together, and they were obviously a husband-wife team. Paul had lived, worked and ministered with them while in Corinth and when he departed, they departed with him (Acts 18:1-3, 18). He always uses plural pronouns—"they" and "them"—when referring to them.

In Romans 16:3-5, Paul sends greetings to Priscilla and Aquilla "and the church that is in their house" (Rom. 16:5). Because Paul here goes against the normal cultural convention of always mentioning the man first, and mentions Priscilla first, many believe that Priscilla was the out-front one in the relationship—like Deborah—and the host and pastor of the church that met in their home. Paul obviously thinks very highly of them both saying that they had "risked their own necks for my life" (Rom. 16:4a).

Junia: An Apostle

In Romans 16:7, Paul greets Andronicus and Junia, who, he says, "are noteworthy among the apostles." Junia is a feminine name and was recognized as a female apostle for the first several centuries of the church's existence. The famous church father of the fourth century, John Chrysostom, declared of Junia, "O how great is the devotion of this woman that she should even be counted worthy of the appellation of apostle."

Some have tried to argue that the name should be "Junias," which is a male name. The problem with this claim is that, first of all, every ancient Greek manuscript, without exception, has the feminine form of "Junia." Secondly, the name Junias is unknown in the ancient world, while Junia is a common name. Junias, therefore, is a hypothetical name created by those who cannot accept that Paul would recognize a female apostle (Hyatt, Paul, Women and Church, 25).

Commenting on why some translations have used "Junias," Dr. N. Clayton Croy, professor of New Testament at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, says, "It is hard to see any reason other than the translators' bias against the possibility that a woman could be an apostle." Faced with such overwhelming evidence, the NIV translators changed the word from "Junias" (1984 edition) to "Junia" in the 2011 edition.

Lydia and the Women Who Labored with Paul in Philippi

Paul began the church in Philippi with a group of praying women. His base of operations and the church's meeting place was in the home of one of these women whose name was Lydia (Acts 16:13-15, 40). Jewish law required a quorum of 10 Jewish men, who were heads of households, for establishing a synagogue in any community. Paul, however, had no problem beginning a Christian congregation with a group of praying women. As far as we know, this was the first church in Europe.

These women obviously functioned in leadership alongside Paul. This is borne out by the fact that in 4:3b of his letter to the Philippian church, he exhorted, "help those women who labored with me in the gospel." Gerald F. Hawthorne, in the Word Biblical Commentary, says that Paul, in this passage, uses a metaphor which means "to fight together side by side with," clearly indicating that Paul sees these women, not as peons under him, but as highly esteemed members of his team who have labored at his side in the cause of Christ.

This reminds me of the words of the noted, British New Testament scholar, F.F, Bruce, who said;

He [Paul] delighted in the company of his fellows, both men and women. The most incredible feature in the Paul of popular mythology is his alleged misogyny. He treated women as persons. The mainstream churches of Christendom, as they inch along towards a worthier recognition of the ministry of women, have some way to go yet before they come abreast of Paul (Hyatt, Paul, Women and Church, 31).

Paul's Spiritual Mother

Paul never mentions a spiritual father, but he does mention a spiritual mother. In Romans 16:13 he sends greetings to Rufus, "and his mother and mine." This is obviously not Paul's biological mother, but a woman who has been a spiritual mother to him. We know little about this woman, but at some point in Paul's spiritual journey, she had offered encouragement and counsel to Paul and been like a mother to him.

The identity of this woman can perhaps be identified by comparing Paul's words in this passage to Mark's Gospel, which also mentions an individual named Rufus. Since Paul's letter and Mark's Gospel were both written to the same Christian community in Rome, and within a few years of each other, it is likely that the Rufus mentioned by Paul and the Rufus mentioned by Mark are the same person.

In his Gospel, which was originally written to the church in Rome, Mark tells of Simon of Cyrene being compelled to carry the cross of Jesus. He notes that Simon is the father of Alexander and Rufus and obviously expects his audience to make the connection when they hear the names of the two sons. The Rufus of Paul, therefore, is most likely the Rufus of Mark, the son of Simon of Cyrene who carried the cross of Jesus.

So, although Paul never mentions a spiritual father in his writings, he does make a point to send greetings to his spiritual mother. His spiritual mother was likely an African woman from Cyrene (Cyrene is located on the north coast of Africa), the mother of Rufus and the wife of Simon of Cyrene who carried the cross of Jesus.

What About 1 Timothy 2:12?

Some will surely quote I Timothy 2:12 as a counter to all the above biblical passages. It reads, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to usurp authority over a man, but to be silent." First of all, the above passages about women must be given equal consideration with this passage. Many have made the error of making 1 Timothy 2:12 a canon within the canon when it comes to women and forcing every other passage to fit their interpretation of this one passage. That is not good hermeneutics.

Secondly, it is obvious from 1 Timothy 1:3 that Paul wrote this letter to Timothy to address the issue of false doctrine that was being spread in the church in Ephesus. His concern is not women in leadership per se, but the propagation of false doctrine by both men and women. First Timothy was not written as a manual of church order to be observed by all churches at all times, but to address the unique situation that existed in Ephesus at the time.

This is borne out by the fact that "authority" in 2:12 is a translation of the Greek word authentein, a word that is found only here in the entire New Testament. If Paul was addressing the normal exercise of authority in the church, we would expect him to use exousia, which he and other New Testament writers use over 100 times. That Paul uses this strange Greek word that neither he nor any other New Testament writer ever used is a clear sign that he is addressing a unique and local situation in Ephesus and is not giving instructions for all churches everywhere.

Those who would restrict the role of women in the church cannot claim Paul as an ally or an authority for their stance.

An Amazing Word From God

Much of the church has refused to recognize the gifts of its female members and has, thereby, violated Paul's command in 1 Thessalonians 5:19, "Do not quench the Spirit." As a result of this disobedience, many gifts have lain dormant while millions have perished without Christ, and the church has languished in defeat.

In 2010, I awakened very early one morning and, not wanting to awaken Sue, went into an adjoining room where I sat on a sofa enjoying the solitude and quietly communing with the Lord. At some point, I sensed my heart become very still and quiet, and then I heard, "I want you to be more identified with Sue and what she is doing," a reference to her work for the full acceptance of the gifts and callings of women in the church.

There was a moment of quietness and I then heard the words, "This message has the power to begin a mass movement from Islam to Christianity, beginning with the women." {eoa}

          Overcoming Cryptographic Impossibility Results using Blockchains, by Rishab Goyal and Vipul Goyal      Cache   Translate Page      
Blockchain technology has the potential to disrupt how cryptography is done. In this work, we propose to view blockchains as an "enabler", much like indistinguishability obfuscation (Barak et al., CRYPTO 2001, Garg et al., FOCS 2013, and Sahai and Waters, STOC 2014) or one-way functions, for building a variety of cryptographic systems. Our contributions in this work are as follows: 1. A Framework for Proof-of-Stake based Blockchains: We provide an abstract framework for formally analyzing and defining useful security properties for Proof-of-Stake (POS) based blockchain protocols. Interestingly, for some of our applications, POS based protocols are more suitable. We believe our framework and assumptions would be useful in building applications on top of POS based blockchain protocols even in the future. 2. Blockchains as an Alternative to Trusted Setup Assumptions in Cryptography: A trusted setup, such as a common reference string (CRS) has been used to realize numerous systems in cryptography. The paragon example of a primitive requiring trusted setup is a non-interactive zero-knowledge (NIZK) system. We show that already existing blockchains systems including Bitcoin, Ethereum etc. can be used as a foundation (instead of a CRS) to realize NIZK systems. The novel aspect of our work is that it allows for utilizing an already existing (and widely trusted) setup rather than proposing a new one. Our construction does not require any additional functionality from the miners over the already existing ones, nor do we need to modify the underlying blockchain protocol. If an adversary can violate the security of our NIZK, it could potentially also take over billions of dollars worth of coins in the Bitcoin, Ethereum or any such cryptocurrency! We believe that such a "trusted setup" represents significant progress over using CRS published by a central trusted party. Indeed, NIZKs could further serve as a foundation for a variety of other cryptographic applications such as round efficient secure computation (Katz and Ostrovsky, CRYPTO 2004 and Horvitz and Katz, CRYPTO 2007). 3. One-time programs and pay-per use programs: Goldwasser et al. (CRYPTO 2008) introduced the notion of one time program and presented a construction using tamper-proof hardware. As noted by Goldwasser et al., clearly a one-time program cannot be solely software based, as software can always be copied and run again. While there have been a number of follow up works (Goyal et al., TCC 2010, Bellare et al., ASIACRYPT 2012, and Applebaum et al., SIAM Journal on Computing 2015), there are indeed no known constructions of one-time programs which do not rely on self destructing tamper-proof hardware (even if one uses trusted setup or random oracles). Somewhat surprisingly, we show that it is possible to base one-time programs on POS based blockchain systems without relying on trusted hardware. Our ideas do not seem to translate over to Proof-of-Work (POW) based blockchains. We also introduce the notion of pay-per-use programs which is simply a contract between two parties --- service provider and customer. A service provider supplies a program such that if the customer transfers a specific amount of coins to the provider, it can evaluate the program on any input of its choice once, even if the provider is offline. This is naturally useful in a subscription based model where your payment is based on your usage.

          Feldenkrais      Cache   Translate Page      
Feldenkrais

The Feldenkrais method is an educational system that allows the body to move and function more efficiently and comfortably. Its goal is to re-educate the nervous system and improve motor ability. The system can accomplish much more, relieving pressure on joints and weak points, and allowing the body to heal repetitive strain injuries. Continued use of the method can relieve pain and lead to higher standards of achievement in sports, the martial arts, dancing and other physical disciplines.

Pupils are taught to become aware of their movements and to become aware of how they use their bodies, thus discovering possible areas of stress and strain. The goal of Feldenkrais is to take the individual from merely functioning, to functioning well, free of pain and restriction of movement. Feldenkrais himself stated that his goal was, “To make the impossible possible, the possible easy, and the easy, elegant.”

Origins

Moshe Feldenkrais (1904–1984) was a Russian born Israeli physicist and engineer who was also an active soccer player and judo master. He devised his system in response to his own recurring knee injury, which had restricted his movement and caused him great pain over a long period of time.


Feldenkrais believed that repeated muscle patterns cause the parts of the brain controlling those muscles to stay in a fixed pattern as well. He thought that the more the muscles are used, the more parts of the brain can be activated. He devised a method of re-educating the neuromuscular system and re-evaluating movement to increase efficiency and reduce stress, using his knowledge of mechanics and engineering, and applying some of his martial arts training.

Benefits

This method of re-educating the nervous system can be beneficial to a wide range of people, including athletes, children, the elderly, martial artists, those who are handicapped, people with special needs, and those suffering from degenerative diseases. It has also proved popular with artists, particularly musicians, a number of whom have used Feldenkrais to improve their performance.

The Feldenkrais Guild of North America (FGNA) states that over half of the those who turn to Feldenkrais practitioners are seeking relief from pain. Many people who have pain from an injury compensate by changing their movements to limit pain. Often these changed movements remain after the pain from the original injury is gone, and new pain may occur.

Feldenkrais helps students become aware of the changed movements and allows them to learn new movements that relieve their pain. Apart from the obvious physical benefits of more efficient movement and freedom from pain and restriction, Feldenkrais practitioners assert that there are other positive benefits for overall physical and mental health.

Feldenkrais can result in increased awareness, flexibility, and coordination, and better relaxation. Feldenkrais practitioners have also noted other benefits in their students, including improvements in awareness, flexibility, coordination, breathing, digestion, sleep, mood, mental alertness, energy, and range of motion, as well as reduced stress and hypertension, and fewer headaches and backaches.

Feldenkrais infographic

Musicians and athletes can improve their performance in many ways when they learn to use their bodies more efficiently. Feldenkrais can also help injured athletes regain lost potential and free them from pain and restriction of movement.

There are numerous accounts of the remarkable results obtained when Feldenkrais is taught to handicapped children so that they can learn to function despite their limitations. Handicapped people can learn to make full use of whatever potential they have, and to have more confidence in their abilities. Practitioners who specialize in teaching Feldenkrais to those who have handicaps have in many cases allowed the patient to discover ways of performing tasks which were previously thought to be impossible for them.

The elderly, whose movements are often restricted by pain and stiffness, can learn to overcome these obstacles with Feldenkrais instruction. In some instances even severe cases of arthritis have been conquered. Theoretically, Feldenkrais can make possible renewed levels of energy and freedom from restriction.


Description

Feldenkrais is described a being a dual system, with two components: “Awareness Through Movement” and “Functional Integration.” The system aims to re-educate the body so that habitual movements that cause strain or pain can be relearned to improve efficiency and eliminate dangerous or painful action.

Feldenkrais helps to translate intention into action. In practice, an individual can learn to achieve his or her highest potential, while at the same time learning to avoid and eliminate stresses, strains, and the possibility of injury.

Functional integration

During this session, the patient wears comfortable clothing, and may sit, stand, walk, or lie on a low padded table. The practitioner helps the pupil by guiding him or her through a number of movements. The practitioner may use touch to communicate with the student, but touch is not used to correct any movements. The purpose of this session is to increase a student’s awareness of his or her own movement and become open to different possibilities for movement.

The instruction can be focused on a particular activity that the student does every day, or that causes him or her pain. The student can learn to alter habitual movements and re-educate the neuromuscular system. This type of session is particularly useful for those who suffer from limitations originating from misuse, stress, illness, or accident.

It can also help athletes and musicians perform to the best of their ability by increasing their possibilities for movement. It offers students the potential for improving their physical and mental performance in addition to heightening the sense of well-being.

Awareness through movement

Feldenkrais’s martial arts background can be clearly identified in many of the aspects of Awareness Through Movement (ATM). During group sessions, pupils are taught to become acutely aware of all their movements and to imagine them, so that they can improve the efficiency of their actions in their minds, and put them into practice. Pupils are encouraged to be disciplined about practicing their exercises, to achieve maximum benefit.

Awareness through movement is described as an exploratory, nonjudgmental process through which pupils are encouraged to observe and learn about themselves and their movements. The range of this therapy is wide, and there are thousands of different lessons designed to help specific areas.

Preparations

No preparation is necessary for the practice of Feldenkrais, and all are encouraged to seek help from this system. No condition is considered a preclusion to the benefits of Feldenkrais.

Precautions

As with any therapy or treatment, care should be taken to choose a qualified practitioner. Feldenkrais practitioners stress that the body must not be forced to do anything, and if any movement is painful, or even uncomfortable, it should be discontinued immediately and the patient should seek professional help.

Side effects

No known side effects are associated with the practice of Feldenkrais.

Research & general acceptance

Since Moshe Feldenkrais began to teach his method, it has gradually gained acceptance as an education system. Published research using the method can be found in U.S. and foreign publications.

Training & certification

Guild-accredited Feldenkrais training courses leading to certification for the practice or teaching of the method are available throughout the United States and in other countries. Guild-certified Feldenkrais practitioners undergo a four-year training course (800 hours) that includes studying numerous movements and becoming aware of the smallest details in movement. After two years of formal training, practitioners may become authorized. The FGNA can be contacted to find a certified Feldenkrais practitioner.

Leben Things! In case you don’t speak Elvish, that roughly translates to “Five Things”. Apparently "things" is an Elivsh word. Who knew?!

This week I sit down with Noelle LaCharite from the Microsoft Cognitive Services team to learn how machines can translate language (like Elvish?), perform search on unstructured data, converse like humans and more. Even better, you can use this stuff in your applications right away; no degree in multi-dimensional calculus required. This is five ways that you can infuse AI into your applications today.

          Managing Remote Teams: A Psychological Perspective      Cache   Translate Page      

This was originally published on my blog, where I often write about remote work, learning to code, and women in tech.

It's 2019 and it's clear that remote work is here to stay. Each year, more individuals are opting to work remotely and more organizations are opening their minds to this trend. Countless remote trends and indicators are demonstrating that this is in fact not a fad, but instead the future of work.

As more of the population engages in this shift, we should consider that remote work often is not just a way of work, but a way of life.

"Remote work isn't just a different way to work – it's a different way to live... we need to acknowledge that isolation, anxiety, and depression are significant problems when working remotely, and we must figure out ways and systems to resolve these complex issues." - Amir Salihefendic is CEO of Doist, State of Remote Work 2019

What comes with this new lifestyle are commonly-cited positive impacts, ranging from higher productivity to greater employee happiness, along with individual challenges of remote work as cited above by Salihefendic. Moving beyond the individual, we should also consider how remote work may more deeply influence the dynamics of our workplaces: more discretely, our teams.

Remote People

At the heart of any organization, distributed or otherwise, is its people. So naturally as remote organizations grow in number, I ponder the following questions:

  • How does remote work influence how people interact with others?
  • How does it impact the social fabric and culture of a company that decides to embark on a remote workforce?
  • Perhaps most importantly, how do these considerations impact how leaders should operate at these organizations?

In this article, I'll attempt to answer some of these questions. The purpose here is not to ascertain whether remote work is a net positive or negative, nor predict how ubiquitous it will be in coming years. What it is aiming to achieve is a new set of considerations or best practices for those managing remote teams. Moreover, it's a thought piece that isolates dynamics which may be subtle, but can greatly influence the culture of any distributed company. Over the next few sections, I'll touch on concepts like:

  • How remote work may influence giving and taking behaviour
  • How we can design systems to incentivize people to act in their best interest
  • How we can try to make remote work sustainable
  • The archetype of a remote worker

I attempt to address some of these through the lens of three of my favourite books and their frameworks: Give and Take, Algorithms to Live By, and the Four Tendencies. This article is also an extension of my original guide to remote work.

3 Years Without a Desk

Before jumping in, I wanted to address why I chose to write this piece. Through 3+ years of working remotely across multiple organizations, teams, and positions, I've observed a variety of dynamics. More specifically, I've seen how some parties completely thrive, while others have collapsed under the challenges that can come with a distributed team.

Of course, we can place blame on the individual or company when these things happen, but I'd like to imagine a better option; one where our systems progress alongside the workforce. In order to achieve this, we need a deeper understanding of the fundamentals of remote work and how we can better adjust to changing conditions.

When I search for terms like "remote teams best practices", "tips for managing virtual teams", or "flexible workforce tips", I get articles back that tell me to "hire well", "engage often", and "trust my team". While these points are valid, they're incredibly unclear and indistinct. They leave me feeling just as lost as before my query.

So, instead I wanted to exercise some deeper thinking about the dynamics that are impacting our new world of work and present a new set of considerations﹣call them best practices if you will, for the leaders of this revolution to consider. I'm hoping that this piece gives thought to and provides actionable steps for us to enable a more intentional, healthier, and happier future of work.

I should clarify that these views are my own and don't necessarily represent the views of Toptal.

Emerging Values

Let's first cover values. Remote work is founded on specific core principles that govern this distinct way of operating which tend to be organization agnostic. They are the underlying foundation which enables us to believe that this approach is indeed better, more optimal, and thus the way we should live:

  • Output/Impact > Input
  • Autonomy > Administration
  • Flexibility > Rigidity

These values do not just govern individuals, but also the way that companies operate and how processes are formed. And like almost anything in life, although they sound resoundingly positive, they have potential pitfalls if not administered with care.

Let's jump into some examples using three well-known frameworks.

Give and Take: Who Are Your Team Players?

Givers, Takers, and Matchers

"Givers succeed in a way that creates a ripple effect, enhancing the success of people around them. You'll see that the difference lies in how giver success creates value, instead of just claiming it." – Give and Take, Adam Grant

Give and Take is an excellent book by Adam Grant which outlines 3 types of individuals defined by their reciprocity style: givers, matchers, and takers.

  1. As their names indicate, takers visualize life as a zero-sum game and prioritize getting more value out of exchanges, compared to what they invest. Their ability to interact and work with others is hindered by this approach to life.
  2. On the other spectrum, givers see the world differently and believe in mutually beneficial situations. They are happy to give without the intention of receiving something back.
  3. Finally, matchers fall somewhere in between, with the key differentiator being that they expect reciprocity and operate in a domain of "fairness".

In life, there will always be a distribution of givers, matchers, and takers, but it may surprise some to find that the most successful leaders are givers. Giving doesn't just benefit the individual, but also companies that embrace givers, as they model their behaviours and create mutually beneficial situations across the organization.

The success distribution of givers, takers, and matchers according to Grant's Give and Take#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Under this premise, I've considered how the giver | matcher | taker framework may translate into distributed or virtual teams. Is there the same proportion of each persona and does the act of working remotely sway people toward any particular behavior style?

While I don't have data supporting this yet, I believe that there may be a sway in the taking direction while working remotely. This is not just in the case of freelancers, but across core teammates as well. Let me explain why I think this is:

Say that you work in an office. If we return to the unspoken values of said office, impact isn't always king. There's other factors at play, like facetime. Any office manager would like to say that impact prevails, but we all know from experience that you don't want to be the first one out of the office. This in itself, supports the initial claim.

While everyone in an office has their own KPIs, they are similarly judged by the hours they clock in and their interaction within the community workplace. As most are, this community is somewhat self-regulating. For example, if someone chooses to spend some of their face time staying late and helping a coworker out with their problem, that's "+5 bonus points".

Everyone knows who the team players are in an office.

With no "face time", remote companies naturally rely solely on "impact" and clear KPIs to judge their employees. This makes sense. But how does that impact someone's natural inclination to support others, both within their function and across the company?

I believe the remote equivalent of "staying late", perhaps helping someone complete a project or doing work that doesn't directly impact your KPIs, is diluted and less likely for two key reasons:

  1. With no set hours, "staying on for longer" is difficult to quantify. More importantly, any help that you do provide outside of your core responsibilities is represented only through personal [Slack] messages. Of course, people shouldn't help others only to be "seen" as givers, but it's only natural that as givers are not recognized for their giving behavior, they may inch toward something that Grant defines as "giver burnout". I've seen this happen throughout my years working remotely and not necessarily to anyone's fault, but perhaps the lack of systems in place to recognize and champion these hidden givers in distributed organizations.
  2. Moreover, since individuals in remote organizations are more likely to have individual KPIs to meet, they must balance their ambition to help others with their performance. Working towards a quarterly raise versus helping another person who will be the sole witness for your actions isn't an easy ongoing decision, even for the most giving individual.

In other words, regardless of your intentions, values, or morals, when you have the unconscious choice between your KPIs and helping another who will likely be the only one aware of your actions, I think less giving is naturally going to happen.

Give and Take: Best Practices

Since we can all testify that giving is not inexistent across remote teams, what am I really trying to say here?

I'm saying that remote workforces and particularly remote team leads should be hyper aware of this lack of "water cooler", not just for community building, but for ensuring healthy collaboration dynamics.

Although I don't have a comprehensive solution, here are a few starting points:

  • Ask your team who helped them that particular week or month.
  • Intentionally build KPIs that encourage teamwork or potentially can only be achieved through teamwork.
  • Start a Slack #shoutouts channel to acknowledge the hidden givers at the organization while also openly celebrating and therefore encouraging this behaviour

I'm sure there are numerous other methods (please let me know if you have them!), but I think the key here is that companies operating remotely need to intentionally design systems to acknowledge these hidden givers before they lose them.

We need to expose giving behaviour, since it doesn't come automatically and it needs to be discrete; it needs to be tangible.

I would also encourage leaders and hiring managers to consider this framework during the recruiting process and actively seek givers. Grant has already identified which interview question that you need to add to your roster, in order to easily determine if someone is a giver:

"Can you give me the names of four people whose careers you have fundamentally improved?"

You can learn more here about why this question provides insight into a person's giving tendency. Regardless, the core takeaway is to actively solicit more of givers into your organization as they will impact the social fabric of how others operate.

Remote Work Best Practice:

  • Take steps to intentionally discover, hire, promote, and acknowledge givers in remote environments.

Algorithms to Live By - Where are the Boundaries?

Tragedy of the Commons

"The equilibrium for a set of players all acting rationally in their own interest may not be the outcome that is actually best for those players" - Algorithms to Live By, Brian Christian and Tom Griffiths

Algorithms to Live By has quickly become one of my favorite books. Gifted to me by a [remote] teammate, this book identifies various ways that we can learn and take insight from computer science in order to better our lives.

Among topics like caching theory, how to make unsolvable (intractable) problems solvable (tractable), or effectively utilizing the concept of annealing – this book closes out with some thoughts on game theory and its ramifications on life.

One particular example covered in this context is the concept of the "unlimited vacation policy". While this "perk" is becoming more prominent across distributed companies, the authors point out that despite altruistic intentions, the policy ultimately fails to reach the intended goal of achieving additional employee satisfaction.

Why? There is a concept in game theory and economics called the Nash equilibrium. It is "a stable state of a system involving the interaction of different participants, in which no participant can gain by a unilateral change of strategy if the strategies of the others remain unchanged". In simpler terms, it is the optimal outcome of a game when there is no incentive to deviate.

Perhaps surprising to some, the Nash equilibrium of an unlimited vacation policy is zero. Why? The natural tendency for employees is to want to take as much vacation as possible, while simultaneously taking slightly less than their peers in order to seem more dedicated.

"To be perceived as more loyal, more committed, and more dedicated, hence more promotion worthy", as Christian and Griffiths put it, "They look to others for a baseline and take just slightly less than that."

We can see this play out clearly in data, gathered by Buffer's State of Remote Report, which quantified the difference between how much vacation was offered by remote organizations versus how much was taken. Despite 32% of companies offering "unlimited vacation", you can see that most of the individuals with this option opted to take two weeks or less.

The difference between how much remote work is offered versus how much is taken.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The same concept is similarly true for office hours. Employees truly want to leave at a reasonable hour, but certainly do not want to be the first to depart. So naturally, this psychology converges at some number (the Nash equilibrium) that each office thinks is acceptable, but often past what employees truly want.

Game theory teaches us that when all players act independently on their best course of action, this does not always result in the best course of action for the group: commonly known as the tragedy of the commons.

As "players" of the game, we can't always do much to change the way the system operates, as you only have control over a single "player". Instead, we must look to those defining the game to change it, through mechanism design. While game theory focuses on asking which behaviours emerge from a given set of rules, mechanism design does the opposite. It seeks to understand the rules that need to be developed to generate the behaviour that is being sought out.

Algorithms to Live By: Best Practices

The above information begs the question once more regarding how remote leaders should consider setting their KPIs or policies. We cannot simply copy and paste the set of rules from a typical workplace and just assume they'll produce the results we're looking for, especially since remote work can be integrally more vague.

For example, the same Buffer study indicated that the #1 difficulty for remote workers is not being able to unplug, topping things like loneliness, motivation, and even the lack of vacation time which we discussed above.

The number one difficulty for remote workers is being unable to unplug#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Remember, if we don't intentionally design, we start to see the Nash equilibrium of virtual work hours become abnormally high, where remote workers essentially don't know how or when to switch off. Currently, individuals are left to define these limits for themselves. So, I would opt toward mechanism design and ask those leading remote teams this question:

  • Are you actively designing KPIs or rules to encourage a life-work balance outside of the "freedom" given to define your own?

Instead of looking for the best ways to "manage" distributed teams, perhaps we should think about the ways that we design beneficial outcomes instead. Leaders should think backwards and intentionally design rules that not just encourage, but cause those actions. In this case, intentionally setting up structures that cause an individual to act in ways that are beneficial to both themselves and the commons.

This is where, contrary to the autonomy which is so welcomed in the remote world, it may be beneficial to consider adding back some more administration. Positive administration of course, to ensure that you're truly designing the remote workplace to foster positive outcomes.

For example, implementing:

  • A "minimum vacation policy"
  • A mandatory set of holidays to take off
  • A system that allows employees to "take back their calendars" and avoid calendar tetris
  • Facilitating open discussions about how to work remotely effectively and successfully

I recently saw one great example of this, where a leader made it mandatory for his team to take off a particular Friday and rewarded them with $50 to go to their favourite restaurant.

A manager who enforced that his team take Friday off.#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

The point here is that things cannot always be enforced through carrots and as our workforce becomes less binary, intentional "mechanism design" becomes more important. Consider that even Wall Street, of the most capitalist hubs, has mandatory "off hours" so that brokers don't push towards the infinite, sleepless Nash equilibrium.

With few restrictions, remote work has the potential to be productive, healthy, and optimal, if the right game is designed. So let's actively design it.

Remote Work Best Practice:

  • Design systems which enable people to easily act in beneficial ways. This may mean some degree of positive administration which did not exist before.

The Four Tendencies: Do You Know Your Team?

A Hypothesis

"The happiest, healthiest, most productive people aren't those from a particular Tendency, but rather they're the people who have figured out how to harness the strengths of their Tendency, counteract the weaknesses, and build the lives that work for them."

Gretchen Rubin has developed an insightful framework called The Four Tendencies, which effectively captures how people respond to expectations. Ultimately, these tendencies have a close relationship with how we make decisions.

The framework's tendencies include the Upholder, Questioner, Rebel and Obliger, with overlap between adjacent tendencies. The allocation of a particular tendency is represented by one's response to inner and outer expectations.

The Four Tendencies: Upholder, Questioner, Rebel and Obliger#source%3Dgooglier%2Ecom#https%3A%2F%2Fgooglier%2Ecom%2Fpage%2F%2F10000

Although the Four Tendencies framework itself is certainly not scientific or even quantifiable, I do believe there are some takeaways that permeate into remote environments. As a questioner, I've found great value in understanding that I'm motivated by internal expectations, while struggling to meet external expectations.

Naturally, I questioned whether there was a trend across remote workers, based upon self-selection. Since there is rarely someone pushing you to work remotely, I suspected that those who are less externally accountable and more internally accountable may more often work remotely.

Questioners and Rebels

According to Rubin, the two most common tendencies across the wider population are:

  • Questioners
  • Obligers

"Of the Four Tendencies, my research shows that most people are either Questioners or Obligers — and Obliger is the largest Tendency of all (for both men and women). Of the Four Tendencies, Rebel is the smallest category, and Upholder is also a small category. Not many people are Rebels or Upholders."

I decided to conduct this research myself, through a Twitter poll of over 400 remote workers.

The results?

By far, the two most prominent tendencies were:

  • Rebels (40%)
  • Questioners (37%)

What went from the least common tendency skyrocketed to the most common across remote workers. And perhaps more interestingly, over ¾ of respondents fit into the two categories with a common thread: resisting outer expectations. If we take this data at face value, that means that there are more than 3x as many rebels and questioners as compared to upholders and obligers in the remote workforce.

To me, this wasn't surprising at all. Those who actively self-select, identify that "there is a better way", and then proceed forward to go and redesign their way of living. I hypothesize that they choose this out of:

  1. A misalignment with the outer expectations of society at least in terms of work norms
  2. An internal vision and motivation do find something better

For these reasons, while there is no doubt that all four tendencies are represented in distributed teams, this disproportion seems to "add up".

The Four Tendencies: Best Practices

I recently published an article which touched on this analysis lightly and got some backlash from Upholders and Obligers who were successful remote workers. To be clear, just like any type of job, I think that all four tendencies can be successful in nearly any work environment. I simply think there is a greater distribution of questioners and rebels as they actively seek this environment out. In other words, I don't think upholders and obligers feel the same "pull" into remote work as they can satisfy external expectations in more typical work environments.

So what are the core takeaways here? Remote employees seem to fall within certain tendencies more frequently. With that knowledge, leaders should be able to tailor their leadership styles to understand and motivate their employees more effectively. For example, instead of instilling outer accountability through deadlines or repercussions, emphasize why a task is important to a questioner.

On a wider scale, if companies want the "best talent", they should embrace that significant chunks of the workforce operate better when they can design their own lives. In many ways I feel as though this data validates that working remotely is not about relaxing, but questioning or rebelling from societal structure and then looking to redefine/optimize.

Remote Work Best Practice:

  • Learn about the motivation styles of your team members and tailor your leadership to be most effective for them

Onward and upward

With the workforce evolving quickly, it's not enough to just remove the office and CTRL+C, CTRL+V the existing approach. While embracing remote work with open arms, we should also have a critical eye for enduring that we truly create the best possible outcomes for both individuals and companies. Perhaps if we were more open to address some of these problems at the root instead of putting perk bandaids on top, we'd have to worry less about how to motivate, keep, or engage remote employees.

To summarize, if you're building a remote team or company, consider how you can introduce more givers or encourage giving behavior. Consider how you can design flexible working practices or rather, restructure the "game" so that its oriented to achieve the best outcomes that are best for all (ie: find the right Nash equilibrium). Finally, consider that everyone is unique, but your remote team or company may over-index in certain tendencies. Acknowledge this and enable your team to thrive by supporting their affinity to specific expectations or assisting them to harness their unique strengths.

The values of remote work: output, autonomy, and flexibility are powerful. Let's make sure to embrace them with care and build stronger, yet more self-aware organizations.

          The Brussels Behemoth Isn't Just a Conservative Fever-Dream      Cache   Translate Page      

In a 2016 interview, Daniel Hannan, an MP in the European Parliament, offered the following criticism of the UK’s continued membership in the European Union:

The economic price is not just the £19bn gross (£10bn net) that we hand to Brussels every year—enough to build and equip a state-of-the-art NHS hospital every week. It also takes the form of the regulatory burden that falls on our businesses, especially smaller firms…for we pay both a democratic price and an economic price. The democratic price is that laws are handed down by institutions that no one elects… European commissioners are immune to public opinion, invulnerable to the ballot box.

His attack against over-regulation by Brussels as both an economic drag and a violation of representative democracy neatly echoes conservative and libertarian lamentations over the administrative state on this side of the pond. Far from a Madisonian republic in which the legislative branch “necessarily predominates”, the U.S. Congress has delegated sweeping grants of authority to the executive branch, thereby derogating its constitutional role as the creator of law (with apologies to Randy Barnett and his natural law fellow-travelers). Far from the canard of three “co-equal” branches, the original constitutional ambition was to establish a legislative branch and two derivative branches to respectively execute and exposit the former’s output.

Libertarians argue that excessive regulation is not only violative of democratic principles, it is economically costly to boot. Yet this is only cause for alarm, in Hannan’s case, if the EU is in fact over-regulating. Let’s look at the numbers.

The online EUR-Lex database contains comprehensive measures of EU legal output since 1990. The three principle lawmaking bodies of the EU are the Parliament, the Council, and the Commission. The first two are popularly elected, whereas the Commission is the unelected executive arm, currently headed by Jean-Claude Juncker. EUR-Lex categorizes all legal output from the Parliament and the Council as “legislative” in nature, whereas Commission output constitutes “non-legislative acts”. Each of the three entities may generate three types of output: regulations, directives, and decisions.

Every year, each of these three entities promulgates X number of new regulations, directives, and decisions, and every year Y number of regulations, directives and decisions are either repealed or expire after a sunset period. This means that it’s possible to tabulate the net number of regulations, directives and decisions emanating from each of the three legal bodies each year since 1990, and to then generate a yearly cumulative count of all extant legal acts. And that’s precisely what I’ve done:

First, some limitations on the data. I present only raw numbers, without a measure or word length or number of restrictive words. Thus, it is difficult to translate these trends into the regulatory burden they impose on the private sector. Moreover, because the data begin in 1990, any negative cumulative numbers indicate a net drop from the unknown 1990 baseline, and not the metaphysical absurdity of a negative number of laws!

Caveats duly heeded, the patterns that do emerge are worth commenting on. As we can see, the EU Parliament is the least active of the three bodies. Perhaps these infrequent legislative acts are massive in size, providing the statutory basis for the explosion of executive activity being pursued by the Commission. Whatever the explanation, the trendlines unambiguously demonstrate that the unelected “non-legislative” EU Commission is an order of magnitude more active than its “legislative” peer branches.

ΚΑΤΑ ΜΑΡΚΟΝ 1 1550 Stephanus New Testament (TR1550)

αρχη του ευαγγελιου ιησου χριστου, υιου του θεου
ως γεγραπται εν τοις προφηταις ιδου εγω αποστελλω τον αγγελον μου προ προσωπου σου ος κατασκευασει την οδον σου εμπροσθεν σου
φωνη βοωντος εν τη ερημω ετοιμασατε την οδον κυριου ευθειας ποιειτε τας τριβους αυτου
εγενετο ιωαννης βαπτιζων εν τη ερημω και κηρυσσων βαπτισμα μετανοιας εις αφεσιν αμαρτιων

A. Start by learning the alphabet and reading the text out loud. We will read it out loud in class too.
B. Look for words you know or words based on the Greek. Mark 1:1 - I see archaeology - the beginning of history; Good News, also good and angel; Jesus Christ; theology.

Basic translating means - Translate the words you know and guess the rest. In simple passages we already know the other words - or at least we think we do. This approach gives us a sense for the Greek rather than that slow style of 
  1. What does this word mean?
  2. How do I parse it?
  3. What is the grammar rule?
The slow style means that a few learn Greek or Latin or German in spite of the teacher. The fast style or immersion is used for quick, effective ability in the new language. We don't have the luxury of total immersion, but we can repeat how we first learned our language.

Children learn language by hearing it and learning what it means in its context. "No" to a small child means "Let's start debating."

PS - "DO NOT PANIC - Written in Large, Friendly Letters." That is the beginning of Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy, a great satire novel.

The article (the) tells us the case and number of the word it is with, making Greek especially easy.

          What Does the Bible Really Say About Women in Leadership?      Cache   Translate Page      

In honor of March being Women's History Month, I am here presenting a sampling of women in the Bible who functioned in all kinds of leadership roles. My motive in presenting this is twofold: First of all, I pray that it will affirm those women who sense a call of God but are hampered by doctrinal questions about the validity of such a call. Secondly, I hope to influence others to rethink their theology that puts restraints on the ministry of women in the church. I am convinced that we will not see the great spiritual awakening for which many are praying apart from the full participation of the female members of Christ's body.

Deborah: Prophetess and Judge

Before the institution of the monarchy beginning with Saul, Israel was ruled by a series of judges. Perhaps the most celebrated of these judges was a woman named Deborah, who is referred to as both a prophetess and a judge. In other words, she exercised both spiritual and civil authority. She had such respect from the people that even the military commander, Barak, refused to go out to battle unless she accompanied him. She accompanied him to battle, and God gave them a great victory over the Canaanites.

Deborah had a husband named Lapiodoth, but he is mentioned only in passing. She was obviously the one called of God to be the out-front leader and deliverer of Israel at that time in history. There is not the slightest hint that her example was out of order or even exceptional.

The Assemblies of God is, therefore, correct when, in its official position paper on women, it says, "The instances of women filling leadership roles in the Bible should be taken as divinely approved pattern, not as exceptions to divine decrees."

Miriam: God-Sent Leader to Israel

In Micah 6:4b, God speaks through the prophet and says, "I sent before you Moses, Aaron, and Miriam." Of the three leaders God sent to bring Israel out of Egypt, one of them was a woman. Note that in this passage God says, "I sent." The word "apostle" literally means "sent one," which means that Miriam, along with Moses and Aaron, were the "apostles" sent by God to bring deliverance to Israel.

This is confirmed by the Septuagint, which uses the word ekapisteila, the verb form of apostolos with the prefix ek, meaning "out." It literally means "sent out." Miriam was "sent out" by God along with Moses and Aaron. Could it be that that God is still calling and "sending out" women today? Will the church be open to receiving these women?

Mary Magdalene: Apostle to the Apostles

Jesus appeared first to Mary Magdalene after His resurrection. The emphasis that the Gospel writers give to this fact make it clear that this was no chance or accidental appearance, but that Jesus appeared first to Mary in order to make a statement.

We must remember that in the first century, neither Roman nor Jewish courts of law would allow the testimony of a woman as evidence. Jesus confronts this cultural bias head-on by appearing first to Mary and sending her to bear testimony to the most significant event of human history. He could have just as easily appeared first to the men, but he required that they hear the news of His resurrection for the first time from the lips of a woman.

His words to Mary, Go and tell . . . identify her as a "sent one" who receives the first apostolic commission from the risen Lord to go and proclaim the Good News of His resurrection. This is why, throughout history, Mary has often been referred to as "the apostle to the apostles."

My father was converted as a result of a young "Mary" (her actual name) responding to the voice of the Lord to "go and tell," who began conducting revival meetings in southeastern Oklahoma and northeastern Texas. I have no doubt that there are a host of Marys in the world today who are hearing the voice the Lord instructing them to "go and tell."

Phoebe: Minister and Church Leader

In Romans 16:1b, Paul refers to Phoebe as "a servant of the church in Cenchrea." The word "servant" in this passage is translated from the Greek word diakonos, which literally means "servant," but was used as a general designation for Christian leaders.

For example, in 1 Corinthians 3:5a, where Paul says, "Who then is Paul, and who is Apollos, but ministers through whom you believed?" "ministers" is a translation of diakonos. Where diakonos was used of men, the translators chose to translate it as "ministers," but where it was used of a woman, they chose to translate it as "servant." Phoebe was, therefore, a "minister" and leader in the church in Cenchrea.

Paul also said that Phoebe had been a "helper of many and of myself as well" (Rom. 16:1b).It is unfortunate that some translators have translated the Greek word prostatis as "helper," for it appears to be another case of translator bias. The word is feminine and literally means "to stand before."

Thayer's Greek-English Lexicon defines a prostatis as "a woman set over others; a female guardian, protectress, patroness, caring for the affairs of others and aiding them with her resources." In other words, a prostatis had all the characteristics that we would expect in a modern-day pastor.

This word prostatis identifies Phoebe as a leader from the church in Cenchrea who has Paul's respect. Not only does her refer to her as a diakonos and a prostatis, but he instructs the church in Rome to receive her with respect and to assist her in whatever business she has with them (Hyatt, Paul, Women and Church, 28).

Does the church today show respect to the Phoebes who are in her midst?

Priscilla: Pastor and Co-Worker with Paul

When Paul mentions Priscilla and Aquilla, he always mentions them together, and they were obviously a husband-wife team. Paul had lived, worked and ministered with them while in Corinth and when he departed, they departed with him (Acts 18:1-3, 18). He always uses plural pronouns—"they" and "them"—when referring to them.

In Romans 16:3-5, Paul sends greetings to Priscilla and Aquilla "and the church that is in their house" (Rom. 16:5). Because Paul here goes against the normal cultural convention of always mentioning the man first, and mentions Priscilla first, many believe that Priscilla was the out-front one in the relationship—like Deborah—and the host and pastor of the church that met in their home. Paul obviously thinks very highly of them both saying that they had "risked their own necks for my life" (Rom. 16:4a).

Junia: An Apostle

In Romans 16:7, Paul greets Andronicus and Junia, who, he says, "are noteworthy among the apostles." Junia is a feminine name and was recognized as a female apostle for the first several centuries of the church's existence. The famous church father of the fourth century, John Chrysostom, declared of Junia, "O how great is the devotion of this woman that she should even be counted worthy of the appellation of apostle."

Some have tried to argue that the name should be "Junias," which is a male name. The problem with this claim is that, first of all, every ancient Greek manuscript, without exception, has the feminine form of "Junia." Secondly, the name Junias is unknown in the ancient world, while Junia is a common name. Junias, therefore, is a hypothetical name created by those who cannot accept that Paul would recognize a female apostle (Hyatt, Paul, Women and Church, 25).

Commenting on why some translations have used "Junias," Dr. N. Clayton Croy, professor of New Testament at Trinity Lutheran Seminary in Columbus, Ohio, says, "It is hard to see any reason other than the translators' bias against the possibility that a woman could be an apostle." Faced with such overwhelming evidence, the NIV translators changed the word from "Junias" (1984 edition) to "Junia" in the 2011 edition.

Lydia and the Women Who Labored with Paul in Philippi

Paul began the church in Philippi with a group of praying women. His base of operations and the church's meeting place was in the home of one of these women whose name was Lydia (Acts 16:13-15, 40). Jewish law required a quorum of 10 Jewish men, who were heads of households, for establishing a synagogue in any community. Paul, however, had no problem beginning a Christian congregation with a group of praying women. As far as we know, this was the first church in Europe.

These women obviously functioned in leadership alongside Paul. This is borne out by the fact that in 4:3b of his letter to the Philippian church, he exhorted, "help those women who labored with me in the gospel." Gerald F. Hawthorne, in the Word Biblical Commentary, says that Paul, in this passage, uses a metaphor which means "to fight together side by side with," clearly indicating that Paul sees these women, not as peons under him, but as highly esteemed members of his team who have labored at his side in the cause of Christ.

This reminds me of the words of the noted, British New Testament scholar, F.F, Bruce, who said;

He [Paul] delighted in the company of his fellows, both men and women. The most incredible feature in the Paul of popular mythology is his alleged misogyny. He treated women as persons. The mainstream churches of Christendom, as they inch along towards a worthier recognition of the ministry of women, have some way to go yet before they come abreast of Paul (Hyatt, Paul, Women and Church, 31).

Paul's Spiritual Mother

Paul never mentions a spiritual father, but he does mention a spiritual mother. In Romans 16:13 he sends greetings to Rufus, "and his mother and mine." This is obviously not Paul's biological mother, but a woman who has been a spiritual mother to him. We know little about this woman, but at some point in Paul's spiritual journey, she had offered encouragement and counsel to Paul and been like a mother to him.

The identity of this woman can perhaps be identified by comparing Paul's words in this passage to Mark's Gospel, which also mentions an individual named Rufus. Since Paul's letter and Mark's Gospel were both written to the same Christian community in Rome, and within a few years of each other, it is likely that the Rufus mentioned by Paul and the Rufus mentioned by Mark are the same person.

In his Gospel, which was originally written to the church in Rome, Mark tells of Simon of Cyrene being compelled to carry the cross of Jesus. He notes that Simon is the father of Alexander and Rufus and obviously expects his audience to make the connection when they hear the names of the two sons. The Rufus of Paul, therefore, is most likely the Rufus of Mark, the son of Simon of Cyrene who carried the cross of Jesus.

So, although Paul never mentions a spiritual father in his writings, he does make a point to send greetings to his spiritual mother. His spiritual mother was likely an African woman from Cyrene (Cyrene is located on the north coast of Africa), the mother of Rufus and the wife of Simon of Cyrene who carried the cross of Jesus.

What About 1 Timothy 2:12?

Some will surely quote I Timothy 2:12 as a counter to all the above biblical passages. It reads, "I do not permit a woman to teach or to usurp authority over a man, but to be silent." First of all, the above passages about women must be given equal consideration with this passage. Many have made the error of making 1 Timothy 2:12 a canon within the canon when it comes to women and forcing every other passage to fit their interpretation of this one passage. That is not good hermeneutics.

Secondly, it is obvious from 1 Timothy 1:3 that Paul wrote this letter to Timothy to address the issue of false doctrine that was being spread in the church in Ephesus. His concern is not women in leadership per se, but the propagation of false doctrine by both men and women. First Timothy was not written as a manual of church order to be observed by all churches at all times, but to address the unique situation that existed in Ephesus at the time.

This is borne out by the fact that "authority" in 2:12 is a translation of the Greek word authentein, a word that is found only here in the entire New Testament. If Paul was addressing the normal exercise of authority in the church, we would expect him to use exousia, which he and other New Testament writers use over 100 times. That Paul uses this strange Greek word that neither he nor any other New Testament writer ever used is a clear sign that he is addressing a unique and local situation in Ephesus and is not giving instructions for all churches everywhere.

Those who would restrict the role of women in the church cannot claim Paul as an ally or an authority for their stance.

An Amazing Word From God

Much of the church has refused to recognize the gifts of its female members and has, thereby, violated Paul's command in 1 Thessalonians 5:19, "Do not quench the Spirit." As a result of this disobedience, many gifts have lain dormant while millions have perished without Christ, and the church has languished in defeat.

In 2010, I awakened very early one morning and, not wanting to awaken Sue, went into an adjoining room where I sat on a sofa enjoying the solitude and quietly communing with the Lord. At some point, I sensed my heart become very still and quiet, and then I heard, "I want you to be more identified with Sue and what she is doing," a reference to her work for the full acceptance of the gifts and callings of women in the church.

There was a moment of quietness and I then heard the words, "This message has the power to begin a mass movement from Islam to Christianity, beginning with the women." {eoa}

          Studio Review: Esh Aerial Arts, Cambridge MA      Cache   Translate Page      
Esh. Trevor on the floor, students milling about.
I've done silks for many years, but on a sporadic, on-and-off basis. Most recently I had my own rig at my last place in Chicagoland, but since I moved to MA I haven't found a place to set up (nor really had time, as I was both working and studying full-time this past year). So I really hadn't been on the silks since last summer. There's not really a circus school that's conveniently-enough located to me without a car (I'll get one eventually...), so I wasn't about to start frequenting anywhere locally. And I wanted a chance to review my skills (after the better part of the year off) before showing up for open training somewhere.

The perfect opportunity presented itself in the form of a silks workshop focusing on drops. I hadn't had room to do drops at my place in Chicago (just saltos and the wimpiest slack drops you've ever seen), so it was material I needed a review on anyways. And the only prerequisite was being able to do a "star drop," or a 3/4 side rotational drop as I knew it from my beginnings at Firefly/NYCAA/Circus Warehouse, so I figured it wouldn't matter that I was rusty. Either there would be some new material I'd never learned, or it would be all review and I'd just be a rockstar.

I was confused in registering because I never got a confirmation email--Esh doesn't use Mindbody but something called Zenplanner that I've never heard of? Anyone else use this? So I wasn't totally convinced that my registration went through (long story but I once registered for a marathon and got a confirmation screen but never the emails and found out like a week before the race that my registration hadn't gone through and I was SO MAD AND SAD and had to scramble to find another race in another city to expend my 4 months of training on, the upside being that Lisbon was lovely), but I checked my bank account the night before and the $50 had been deducted from my account, so I figured all was well.

The class was yesterday afternoon, and I arrived somewhat flustered because I hadn't been able to find the entrance to the school. There was no sign, I found the address but the door was unmarked so I thought I must have the wrong entrance, and there were buzzers but only 2 were marked and none said Esh. Pacing up and down the block, I went on their website in hopes of calling the front desk for directions, but neither their website nor google listed a phone number. Fortunately a lady at another local business told me which entrance to use and the door turned out not to be locked, and I was able to finagle my way to the studio's room. It wasn't obvious though, so leave extra time!

Being used to bigger spaces like the Brooklyn Lyceum and STREB, I was surprised how small Esh was. It was 2 rooms that were pretty average-sized, but with ceilings just high enough to do big drops from. One of the rooms had a boisterous class of people doing some sort of acro-balance and laughing like they were having the time of their lives, and the other was quiet and mostly empty with a pair or two of silks released from the ceiling. I was greeted by someone who was one of the studio managers or owners or something, and by the time I finished getting dressed the other workshop participants were starting to straggle in and stretch on the floor. Everyone was quiet and not talking and I felt disappointed that the atmosphere wasn't friendlier (like pole studios, circus spaces are intimidating to visit for the first time), but things warmed up quickly once we got to introductions.
The instructor was Trevor, who had trained at New York Circus Arts Academy around the same time as me, but had gone on to the pro track at NECCA while I went on to focus on my poling. So we knew a lot of the same people and drops, and fortunately for me he was able to translate terminology into something I would understand (circus move names are even more nebulous than pole move names).

Trevor gave us a handout of the moves we may or may not have been learning (we had a list of possibilities and chose from it based on our levels and what people wanted to learn) so that we could take notes, but of course I didn't because I suck about taking notes and I think I lost the handout anyways. There were 6 participants and we released one set of silks for each, but the rule was that only 3 people could do a move at a time so that the instructor could keep an eye out. Also, the ceiling was higher on one end of the room, so for bigger drops we could only use the silks on that side anyways. So while we had 6 silks open, only 3 were usually active past warmup climbs.

Trevor's teaching template was to fully explain a move, then demo it, then answer questions about it, then let us try. We also had to check in with him before throwing a drop, and like everywhere I made him say "3-2-1" before every throw so I wouldn't chicken out.

There was a good mix of drops I knew and drops I didn't. I even volunteered to demonstrate one that he called a "New York slack drop" because of what a staple it is in the NYC circus school scene. I found the other students (who had mostly been studying a couple years) to be supportive and eager to try new things, even when they were complicated or scary-looking.

Despite being small, Esh was still a fun place to spend a weekend afternoon, and I was able to leave feeling accomplished, happy, and just the right amount of sore and tired. However, the class ended at 4:30, and the train schedules being what they are I didn't get home until after 8. Sure, that gave me some quality shopping time at Downtown Crossings while awaiting the next commuter rail, but don't expect to see me there too often.

Oh, and because I know my readership is mostly pole people: Esh sometimes has classes in swinging pole. No, I haven't had a chance to try it yet, but sounds intriguing, huh?

Stats:

          Jeremy Pataky | Silences So Deep: A Conversation with John Luther Adams      Cache   Translate Page      
A slightly shorter version originally appeared in the Anchorage Press, here.

photo credit: Pete Woodhead
I call John Luther Adams from my cabin near McCarthy. He’s maintained his 907 area code, though I know he’s relocated to New York City after 40 years in Alaska. My spot in the woods seems more akin to his former habitat than the deep urban place where he answers the phone. I’m picturing Adams inside his old studio cabin nestled in calm, subarctic boreal forest, as documented by filmmaker Bob Curtis-Johnson before Adams left. Afterimages of that short—and completely silent—film clash with the intermittent city sirens that whine through the phone. They’re an odd soundtrack to our conversation about art, purpose, and living.

Adams is a composer. He’s also an author, presently finishing up his third book, called Silences So Deep: A Memoir of Music and Alaska, recently excerpted in Alaska Quarterly Review and forthcoming from Wesleyan University Press.

Both his life and work are deeply rooted in the natural world. Adams was awarded the 2014 Pulitzer Prize for Music for his symphonic work Become Ocean, and a 2015 Grammy Award for “Best Contemporary Classical Composition”. Inuksuit, his outdoor work for up to 99 percussionists, is regularly performed all over the world. He’s won a number of other prestigious awards.

Born in 1953, John Luther Adams grew up in the South and in the suburbs of New York City. He studied composition at the California Institute of the Arts, where he was in the first graduating class (in 1973). He became an environmental activist in the mid-1970s, campaigning for the Alaska National Interest Lands Conservation Act and then serving as executive director of the Northern Alaska Environmental Center.

Adams has taught at Harvard University, the Oberlin Conservatory, Bennington College, and the University of Alaska. He has also served as composer in residence with the Anchorage Symphony, Anchorage Opera, Fairbanks Symphony, Arctic Chamber Orchestra, and the Alaska Public Radio Network.

Though his recognition stems almost entirely from his musical career, his book Winter Music: Composing the North placed him on my radar a dozen years ago. His work has been a steady presence for me since.

I’ve also admired his depictions of two other Alaskan artists, the poet John Haines and conductor Gordon Wright. Adams has written evocatively of his friendship with them. Adams’ anecdotes about how he and Wright would hoot at each other and a visitation from an owl after Wright died came to mind the night before our interview. I was prepping for our conversation when a Great Horned Owl flew passed the cabin and landed in a spruce. I went outside and it stayed put for minutes, bobbing its head and watching me. It was the first owl I’d seen since spring. Adams’ joked: “That was probably Gordon. He always wanted to be my press agent.” 

You first came to Alaska in 1975 and stayed for forty years. You said you came to Alaska instead of going to grad school, and that your time playing timpani in Fairbanks was more valuable than graduate school could have been. How exactly did Alaska educate you?

Because I was in Fairbanks, I had opportunities that just wouldn’t have been available to me perhaps anywhere else…. I was immediately hired as the timpanist. I’d never played timpani in my life, but I was a kind of lapsed percussionist. I had the most important qualification for employment in Fairbanks in those days, though—I was there. It didn’t hurt that the conductor was my best friend. By the time I finished I was probably at the best I ever played anything.

As timpanist and composer in residence at the Fairbanks Symphony, I had the opportunity to learn things that I probably wouldn’t have had anywhere else. I got to get inside of orchestral music of all sorts and learn it from the inside out. I learned about orchestration from inside the orchestra, from hearing the different sections practice different passages and then hearing how things went together. I always got the score for everything we were playing so I was not only learning my part as the timpanist, but I was learning the score. Previously, I’d had little or no interest in the canon of western classical music. In my youthful rebellion, I had thrown that baby out with the bathwater. But because I was the timpanist in the Fairbanks Symphony, I came to terms with that music and learned it from the inside, and it was incredible.

In time, you know, part of the devil’s bargain that Gordon [Wright] made with me was “Okay, you play timpani in my orchestra and I’ll play your music.” So really, as I used to tell Gordon, I got the better end of both sides there. I got to write things and hear them played. I got to learn how to compose for orchestra by doing it, not just by reading about it, and I got this incredible education about the history of orchestra music that I probably wouldn’t have gotten any other way. It was a win-win for me.

And for us. You’re primarily identified as a composer, but you are also an author. You’ve corresponded or collaborated with some fantastic writers in addition to composers, musicians, and producers. What artistic obligations span your twin practices of composing and writing?

You know, I didn’t answer the phone when you first called because my editor was just leaving. We’re ploughing through the third draft of a new book, which is the story of my life and work in Alaska. But it’s funny—I try not to think of myself as a writer; I still talk of myself as a composer who sometimes writes. Maybe that’s just superstition, but… I want to keep it fun. Composing is difficult.

There was a pitcher—I can’t remember who it was, but it was a major league pitcher a number of years ago—who was also a pretty good hitter. Someone said to him “You know, you’re a good pitcher, but you’re a pretty good hitter, too,” and he said “Pitching is hard. Hitting is fun.” I sort of feel like that about writing. I know better, but composing is hard and writing is fun, at least by comparison.

You write quite a bit about the ideas and process behind your music. Has it felt important to “explain” yourself as a composer through writing?

Well, I’m usually writing for the same person for whom I’m composing—that is, myself. When I’m composing, it’s almost as though I’m composing home. I’m trying to hear something I haven’t heard before. I’m trying always to discover new sonic territory, new musical territory. If I’m lucky, I get hopelessly lost in those strange new landscapes. And, of course, that’s what I want for myself, but it’s also what I want for you, the listener.

As a writer, I write primarily to figure out what the work wants of me. The great painter Barnet Newman once quipped—he was a pretty fair writer himself—that the artist sometimes writes so he’ll have something to read. I think I know what he meant. I think I understand that. I write sometimes before, sometimes during, and sometimes after the process of composing to try and figure out what the music wants from me. It helps me understand the work and where the work wants to lead me.  

So this book I’m working on now is the story of my life and work in Alaska. I really found home in Alaska, and it is home in the deepest sense and it always will be. I really came of age, as an artist and a man, in Alaska.

So now that I’ve left home, I’m trying to figure out what it was that drew me there in the first place, what I discovered there, what I thought I was doing, and what it might have meant, and ultimately why the time came for me to leave. So once again, I’m writing a book as a process of discovery for myself, and then I hope to make it a good enough story that somebody else is going to be interested in reading it.

And you’ll be reading from that new manuscript soon in Anchorage.

Yes—I haven’t decided yet what I want to read. It’s sort of carrying coals to Newcastle, bringing this story home, because everyone in the room will have their own Alaska story, but I’m excited about it.

You’ve written at length about the impact of creative collaborations and conversations with fellow artists, the conductor Gordon Wright and poet John Haines. How has your creative process changed in their absence and your own maturation as an artist?

John and Gordon are two of the three most important people in my life. The dedication in the new book is to Cynthia, Gordon, and John. Cynthia, of course, is the love of my life, my soulmate for thirty nine years, now. John and Gordon are not absent in my life. They’re still with me every day in so many ways. You know—I shared with those three people a life and a vision of how the world is and how the world might be that still sustains me every day in everything that I do.

Did their passing help prompt or even permit your own choice to leave Alaska?

Absolutely. The short version is that when Gordon died, I knew the time was coming, and when John died, I knew the time had come.

As a poet, I was interested in how you describe Gordon Wright eventually learning that “sound rather than syntax was the key to making sense of [your] music,” and that it was Haines’s poetry that helped Wright realize that. Can you comment on how yourexperience of poetry and music have informed each other, or how they might relate?

Ya, when I was an adolescent, like all of us, I wrote bad poetry. I read a lot of poetry and literature and I might have been a writer, I might have been a poet instead of a composer. I’ve always had that frame of reference or sensitivity to language. In addition to John Haines, one of my other dearest friends is Barry Lopez. Barry and I delight in the feeling that we’re doing the same work in different forms. We take no end of pleasure in discovering not the differences but the parallels between our work in different artistic media. So I would say in a way that as a composer I’ve learned as much—probably more—from writers and from visual art than I have from music and other composers.

Interesting. I know you’ve endorsed Walter Pater’s notion that “all the arts constantly aspire to the condition of music,” so it’s interesting to pair those thoughts.

Well, I’m slumming, right? [laughs] I think all the arts aspire to be whole. I think all of human intelligence and our human senses—we want to be whole, and we’ve become so divided—from ourselves, let alone from one another. We’re at a time in a culture in which human consciousness itself is dangerously fragmented and I think part of what we’re trying to do through poetry, through music, through the science of ecology, through all forms of creative thought… and good science is every bit as creative as good art… is to re-innovate ourselves, to make ourselves whole again, to find, as Gregory Bateson would say, “the pattern which connects.” And in feeling more fully integrated as individuals, hopefully we feel more integrated with one another and this whole miraculous world we inhabit, and all the forms of life with which we share this world.

That speaks to the condition of music and its relevancy across the arts and other disciplines.

Look, I’ve devoted my life to music and still I have no idea what music is. Music doesn’t care. Music can be whatever it wants to be. Sure, it can tell a story. Sure, it can express emotions, but it can also be a place or weather or it can be things that we haven’t yet imagined or understood. Ultimately, for me, as a composer—and I say this often—music is not what I do, music is how I understand the world. And the flip side of that is the whole world is music.

That certainly calls to mind The Place Where You Go To Listen, which was installed ten years ago at the Museum of the North. The Rasmuson Foundation just announced plans last month to fund a $104,000 upgrade. How has the meaning of The Place for you has changed over the course of its first decade?

That’s a great question. I’m amazed that The Place is still up and running ten years later. It’s a complex piece with a lot of moving parts, you know, a lot of hardware and a lot of software. I’m delighted and a little astonished that it’s still running. You know I wrote a whole book about The Place Where You Go To Listen and its evolution; in my body of work—and maybe in a larger sense— The Place Where You Go To Listen is unique. Within the context of my work, it’s both a point of arrival and departure. In some ways, it’s my most Alaskan work and if you want to experience The Place Where You Go To Listen you can’t download it on the internet, you can’t buy a CD. You have to go to Fairbanks and you have to sit in that room and wait. And listen. And wait. And listen. And wait. And listen. It’s all about being there in that place.

You could have just been describing, in a way, your creative process itself over the last forty years. Your description of how one could experience The Place Where You Go To Listen also describes, in a way, your approach to the world itself.

Ya, I think that is astute and generous of you to say. I think that’s right. It’s profoundly satisfying to me to know that there are people like you—that you can go to The Place Where You Go To Listen and sit in silence and deep attention and feel as though you’re in tune with, in touch with, the forces of the world, this music that is swirling around us all the time, some of it just beyond the reach of our ears.

None of the forces that actually create the music, none of the forces behind the sounds in The Place Where You Go To Listen, are normally audible to us. It’s driven by seismic activity, by the photoperiod, by the phases of the moon, by geomagnetic weather, the solar winds, by the rhythms of night and day. These are things that we’re not usually able to hear. So you go there, and they’re transposed into the reach of your ears. You go and you sit in The Place Where You Go To Listenand feel as though—even though you won’t recognize a single sound—that somehow it’s real, it’s alive, and it’s connected to the larger world, and you are there, alone, in the center of the world. That’s what I want for myself. It’s what I want for you, the listener, in all of my work.

I’m curious how indigenous people have responded over the years to your work.

Generally speaking… I’ve not worked directly with native music. There is one piece from many years ago—Earth and the Great Weather—that is subtitled “A Sonic Geography of the Arctic”. That’s grounded in the geography of the eastern north slope—what we now call the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge, which of course is the home country of both Iñupiaq people to the north and Gwich’in Athabascan people to the south. So in that piece, I worked very closely with four native performers and even so, I didn’t borrow directly from native music.

I tried to translate what I had experienced as the energy of—the spirit of—native music into my own musical world. I think the profound influence of native culture on my life’s work has been through—what would I call it?—the wisdom of native experience. The deep and ancient experience of that place as home. The knowledge that the whole world has intelligence. The Yupik people talk about the spirit in all things. That really is close to the heart of my own faith, my own belief system. Everything in the world—everything in what we call “nature”—has presence, and dignity, and awareness, and everything in the world is in counterpoint with everything else, and in some way influences everything else… which is a fundamental principle of ecology, isn’t it? So that’s probably the deepest influence of native culture on my work.

Is there anything else you want to share in advance of your trip to Alaska?

I’m very, very excited about coming home. I miss Alaska every day, and as I said earlier, it’s home and it always will be, and I can’t wait to be home for a while.
