Excerpted from John Hussman's Weekly Market Comment,

There are three principal phases of a bull market: the first is represented by reviving confidence in the future of business; the second is the response of stock prices to the known improvement in corporate earnings, and the third is the period when speculation is rampant – a period when stocks are advanced on hopes and expectations.

There are three principal phases of a bear market: the first represents the abandonment of the hopes upon which stocks were purchased at inflated prices; the second reflects selling due to decreased business and earnings, and the third is caused by distress selling of sound securities, regardless of their value, by those who must find a cash market for at least a portion of their assets.
– Robert Rhea, The Dow Theory, 1932

Charles Dow once wrote, “To know values is to know the meaning of the market.” That quote may surprise trend-followers and adherents of technical analysis, because Dow’s work is often squeezed into a caricature focusing on nothing more than confirmation and divergence across the Dow Jones Industrial and Transportation averages. But Dow’s actual views, best elaborated by writers like Robert Rhea and William Peter Hamilton, were actually about something much more fundamental: identifying the position of the market in its complete bull-bear cycle. That’s a concept that investors have forgotten, encouraged by the illusion that the Federal Reserve’s buying of Treasury bonds is capable of saving the world from any form of discomfort. That illusion is likely to prove costly.

Probably the most useful exercise we can do at present is to examine where the markets and the U.S. economy are in their respective cycles – with 19 charts and detailed analysis.

The recent bull market clocked in as the longest in history. Even if the September 20, 2018 peak in the S&P 500 was the final high, the preceding advance outlived the 1990-2000 bull market by nearly 8 weeks. Likewise, the current economic expansion is just 3 months shy of the record 10-year expansion that ended in early 2001, the unemployment rate is down to just 3.8%, the entire post-crisis gap between actual real GDP and the CBO estimate of potential real GDP has been eliminated, and the expansion has already outlived the previous runner-up, which ran from 1961 to the end of 1969.

Meanwhile, based on the valuation measures we find best-correlated with actual subsequent market returns across history, the current market extreme already matches or exceeds those of the 1929 and 2000 peaks. There’s little question that the market is long into what Rhea described as the final phase of the bull market; “the period when speculation is rampant – a period when stocks are advanced on hopes and expectations.”

As I’ll detail below, the economic expansion we’ve observed since the 2009 economic low has been a rather standard mean-reverting recovery, with a trajectory no different than could have been projected on the basis of wholly non-monetary variables. The primary effect of extraordinary monetary policy wasn’t to drive real economic gains, but instead to amplify speculation and contribute to wealth and income disparities. Wages and salaries as a share of GDP are clawing higher from the historic low set in 2011, but have only begun to erode the elevated profit margins on which Wall Street is basing its permanent hopes and expectations.

Aside from historic extremes in the valuation measures best correlated with actual subsequent market returns, one measure of these hopes and expectations is that in 2018, according to the Financial Times, 81% of U.S. companies that went public reported losses in the 12 months before their initial public offerings, matching the high-water mark set at the height of the dotcom bubble (h/t Hadi Taheri). It’s the same kind of spectacle that Rhea described nearly a century ago, when he wrote:

“Worthless equities were being sky-rocketed without regard for intrinsic worth or earning power. The whole country appeared insane on the subject of stock speculation. Veteran traders look back at those months and wonder how they could have become so inoculated with the ‘new era’ views as to have been caught in the inevitable crash. Bankers whose good sense might have saved the situation, had speculators listened to them, were shouted down as deconstructionists, while other bankers, whose names will go down in history as ‘racketeers,’ were praised as supermen.”

Still, while it was important to Dow, Rhea, and Hamilton to understand valuations, and to recognize the position of the market in the cycle, they were also carefully focused on the behavior of prices, particularly the uniformity of behavior between their primary indices of interest – the Dow Industrials and Transports. While our own measures of market internals focus on the uniformity of a much broader set of securities, it’s enormously instructive to consider several critical features of market behavior that they understood even a century ago.

  • First, market fluctuations exhibit cycles that move between periods of extreme optimism and periods of profound despair.

  • Second, the extremes of each cycle are characterized by unusually elevated or depressed valuations, and these valuations comprise the true “meaning” of the market for investors.

  • Third, the speculative pressure toward higher prices, and the downward pressure toward lower prices, can be largely gauged by the “uniformity” of behavior across various groups of securities.

  • Fourth, it is enough to identify prevailing conditions and respond to them as they change, without any need to predict the extent or duration of a subsequent market movement.

Consider the situation in mid-1929, when, as the market pushed to obscenely rich valuations, Hamilton acknowledged the uniform behavior of the Dow averages, while also carefully placing the advance in a full-cycle context. That uniformity suggested that investors had taken the speculative bit in their teeth, despite the fact that the bull market, in hindsight, would reach its peak only a few weeks later.

“It goes without saying that the stock market, which has advanced with merely secondary reactions for five years and eight months, is almost necessarily in the third or last stage of such a movement, where stocks do not carry themselves on the dividend return, for the most part, and where sanguine expectations of the future exercise a greater influence than immediate results. All that the averages say when they give such a bull point as that of June 29 [when the Dow averages breached their previous May highs] is that stocks are due for a further advance. They do not predict the extent of that advance.”

The 1929 peak occurred on September 3rd of that year, followed immediately by a steep, waterfall decline. Hamilton’s confirmation of a “turn in the tide” was published the next month, on October 25, 1929, the Friday before Black Monday. By then, the Dow was already 20% off its high (that’s what safety nets and tail-risk hedges are for). The Dow would lose an additional 86% before setting its final low in 1932.

We presently have a financially disfigured economic expansion that’s three months shy of the longest in history, where the unemployment rate is down to 3.8%, and the most reliable measures of stock market valuation again rival the hypervalued extremes of 1929 and 2000. In this context, to call for an immediate 50 basis point rate cut and a resumption of quantitative easing from the Fed seems a frantic strategy to keep a hypervalued market and two-tiered economic “prosperity” in suspended animation.

In a hypervalued market, we do not need to embrace market risk as a result of speculative pressures, but we have to defer an overtly bearish investment outlook on immediate market direction. All of this effort to jam the speculative bit back into the horse’s teeth requires us to adopt a rather neutral outlook here, until we observe fresh deterioration in market internals. Given the late-stage condition of the financial markets and the economy, my sense is that, as in 1929, they may just run this poor horse straight up and over the cliff.

We’ll respond to shifts in valuations and market action as they emerge, so forecasts aren’t actually necessary. Still, full-cycle risks have a way of emerging in ways that investors wholly rule out at market peaks. Glorious half-cycle market advances leave investors vulnerable to catastrophe, because investors hold contempt for anyone who suggests there may be a cliff on the other side of the mountain.

Still, recall that I openly anticipated the 2000-2002 collapse (which wiped out the entire total return of the S&P 500 – over and above T-bill returns – all the way back to May 1996), estimated an -83% loss in tech stocks at their March 2000 peak (which rather improbably matched the actual loss of the tech-heavy Nasdaq 100), and, after a constructive shift in early 2003, projected the 2007-2009 collapse (which wiped out the entire total return of both preceding bubbles – over and above T-bill returns – all the way back to June 1995). The distressing thing is that, from a historical perspective, all of those losses were rather run-of-the-mill cycle completions.

Understanding potential downside risk at a market extreme has a way of concentrating the mind. If I were to offer a guess, I’d suggest that regardless of whether the S&P 500 registers fresh near-term highs, investors should allow for the S&P 500 to be perhaps -30% lower by the end of 2019, on the way to losing an additional -50% of its remaining value over the rest of the down-cycle. That, after all, is how a market loses -65% of its paper value. That’s not so much a forecast as a base case. A -65% loss, unfortunately, would presently represent a run-of-the-mill cycle completion from current valuation extremes. As I observed at the 2000 peak, “If you understand valuations and market history, you know we’re not joking.”

... the investors at greatest risk in the coming years will likely be those who take solace from Fed easing in environments where valuations are extreme yet investors are inclined toward risk-aversion. It will be necessary to refrain from too negative an outlook when overvaluation is joined by speculative psychology, and also to refrain from too aggressive an outlook when reasonable valuations are still joined by extreme risk-aversion. In any event, I expect that responding systematically to valuations and market action, particularly the condition of market internals, will be sufficient to navigate whatever policy makers throw at the markets.

          Marvel finally explained those matching suits in the trailers for ‘Avengers: Endgame’      Comment   Translate Page      
A series of toy leaks months ago revealed that several of the surviving Avengers would don matching white suits in Avengers: Endgame, similar to the armor that Hank Pym wore in Ant-Man and the Wasp to go to the Quantum Realm. Theories soon formed around those toys leaks, as fans expected the heroes to find a way to travel through time with the help of Scott Lang’s knowledge of Pym's work and the Quantum Realm. The Endgame directors then said in an interview that those toy leaks might not reflect the final version in the film, but that didn’t change the fact that both Lego and Hasbro had Avengers minifigs and figurines dressed up in Quantum Realm suits (that’s what we ended up calling them for lack of an official explanation). Soon after that, Marvel released new trailers and Endgame footage that showed several of the Avengers wearing the white outfits. And now we finally have an explanation about the new armor. Before we proceed, beware that some spoilers may follow below. Marvel dropped an Endgame trailer featuring several of the Avengers wearing the white suits, including Captain America, Iron Man, Nebula, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and War Machine. At the time, I wondered how many of the Avengers would wear the new suits, thinking that Marvel may have altered those scenes to make it look as if more team members would embark on the same mission. In a clip released a few days ago, we also got to see Rocket in the same white suit. In total, nine heroes would wear the uniforms, if the clip shows footage that will make it into the final cut of the film, which prompted us to speculate that one of them is Hulk/Professor Hulk. But Marvel has never explained why they have the suits, and what purpose they serve. After all, the Avengers each have their own costume. Even though they’ve been fighting as a team for years, they’ve never had matching outfits. One reason for not having them all dressed in similar battle gear is that the heroes are much easier to identify visually because of their unique suits. You can tell them apart with ease no matter how complex the battle sequence is because each of them wears whatever he or she feels comfortable wearing in battle. We’ve speculated for months now that, just as Hank and Ant-Man need suits to survive the trip to the Quantum Realm, every other Avenger who will join Lang will need similar protection. Some theories even speculated that the suits will let them survive in space, and they’re made of the same nanoparticles that Tony Stark uses for his Iron Man suit. The housing of these suits will be on the wrists of the surviving Avengers, these theories said, which would explain all those leaked photos from the Endgame set that showed several Avengers with an identical wearable parked on their wrists. That’s all the unofficial information about the white suits that’s out there. But Marvel this week finally addressed the uniforms. It was Marvel boss Kevin Feige who addressed the new armor in an interview with io9. “We call them the team suits,” Feige said. “And we early on decided [revealing them] was a big differentiating factor between [Endgame] and the other films. The Avengers have never had matching outfits before, [so] we thought it was a very intriguing image to see something that made this film feel new.” Feige said that Marvel and Disney’s marketing issues weren’t just about hiding spoilers, but also about making sure the audience knows Endgame isn’t Infinity War 2, but a standalone movie. The suits helped with that. “[We had to] make it feel more than just Infinity War II. Because it’s not,” he said. “Those team suits add something fresh to it. As does Hawkeye, as does Captain Marvel. As does Scott Lang.” The fact that the surviving Avengers will wear the same suits does send a powerful message. Whatever happened between them, they’re ready to put their differences aside and work as a team to defeat the most significant threat they’ve encountered so far. Seeing Tony and Steve rocking the team suits in various scenes is a signal that the moment we’ve been dying to see since Civil War is coming soon. The two Avengers leaders will meet for the first time in years and make up. The purpose of the suits isn’t just to let the audience know that Endgame is a new movie, or that the Avengers have grown a lot as a team since the original movie. It's also functional armor. As expected, Feige didn't address that in the interview. We’re probably going to have to wait until April 26th to learn exactly what the suits do and why Stark created them. And Stark wouldn't just create these matching suits without having some solid reasons to do it. How many of the Avengers will wear them while going back in time via the Quantum Realm? Up to nine, if the latest TV spot is accurate, although the clips may be misleading. The Russo brothers confirmed more than once that their trailers mislead the audience on purpose, to protect the plot. With that in mind, Joe Russo also addressed the team suits in the same interview, although he shared even less information about them. “Obviously anything that goes into the trailers is really well considered,” he said. “And whatever people want to take away from that they can take away from that.” The main takeaway from Feige’s revelations is that the suits are real, they’re called the team suits, and we’re going to see them in the film.

Diversity in TV must start early


Cottonwood Media’s Find Me In Paris

While representation in kids’ TV has increased in recent years, it’s still got a long way to go before it becomes mainstream. Ann-Marie Corvin reports for TBI Vision.

From Sesame Street to Dora the Explorer, there’s a perception that kids TV leads the way when it comes to positively championing themes of inclusion and diversity, but statistics suggest otherwise.

The ongoing Children's Television Project (CTV) at Tufts University, which has been monitoring U.S. children’s TV content for diversity for the last seven years, has found that black characters account for 5.6% of a total sample of over 1,500 characters, despite representing around 13% of the population in 2018.

Meanwhile, in the UK, regulator Ofcom’s Children and Parent’s Media Use and Attitude Report (November 2017) found that a third of British 8-11 year olds still didn’t think there were enough programmes which showed children that looked like them.

This matters because young audiences will simply pay less attention if they don’t see themselves reflected in the content, according to Anne Brogan, joint managing director of kids prodco Kindle Entertainment.

“If your creative comes from a limited pool of experience you can’t capture the wider experience of kids, and if you can’t do this, they will disconnect,” she warns.

The former ITV kids’ controller adds that the challenge for content makers is to find the people to tell the stories and to make them entertaining so that they have universal appeal.

For its CBBC/CBeebies hit, Jamillah And Aladdin – which brought together three central characters from a diverse background – Kindle chose to draft in less experienced writers from diverse backgrounds.

“It isn’t easy if you have a team of rookie writers as you have to put a huge amount of support into that team to generate the scripts,” Brogan adds.

Commercially, however, it was worth it, with the 52 x 11-minute show – distributed by Spain’s Imira Entertainment – picked up by Spanish pubcaster TVE; Al Jazeera for the Middle East and North Africa, as well as Sweden and Norway via networks Sveriges Television and NRK.

“Broadcasters loved that combination of the classic storytelling and the very modern ethnically diverse characters; the response we had from parents was delightful. Their children were seeing what was familiar to them on screen for the first time,” she recalls.

Julie Bristow, president and CEO of Toronto-based content-creation company Bristow Global Media (BGM) reports similar feedback after the first series of last year’s 13 x 22-minute live action series It’s My Party! for TVO.

Aimed at 6-9 year olds, the series takes young viewers on a tour of the world’s greatest parties, from Diwali and Kwanzaa to Hanukkah and Oshogatsu.

Currently in production on the second series, which the firm is taking to MIPTV, Bristow reports that the response from viewers has been overwhelming.

“It’s often the first time the kids have seen their culture represented on TV. Parents hear their kids shout ‘They are telling our story’, and that’s what we have to do, we have to put everybody on camera,” she says.

There are plenty of other examples of commercially successful kids content punching through that reflects and explores different cultures and experiences.

Cottonwood Media’s preschool animated hit, Ollie & Moon, the second series of which is heading to MIPTV, introduces small kids to different cultures – with two cats – who travel around the world appreciating the differences and similarities in everyone.

The show’s ‘vive la différence’ message has now sold to over 150 countries, airing in most English-speaking countries as well as every major market in Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Latin America.

According to Cottonwood co-founder Cécile Lauritano, when the company was developing its ultra premium live-action ballet co-pro Find Me In Paris, which airs on Nickelodeon in the UK & Ireland, they were keen to reflect LBGT+ experiences as a normal part of teen life, with a storyline featuring an openly gay character who falls in love with a friend, treated as any other romantic plot.

While this may not seem groundbreaking, given the amount of Young Adult (YA) fiction written to reflect gay experiences, until recently there’s been a nervousness among execs around LGBT characters, which makes the success of dramas such as ABC Australia’s First Day (see case study on tbivision.com), all the more remarkable.

“As a producer I was very proud to bring this storyline to the screen,” says Lauritano, because 10, 11 and 12 year-old kids need to understand that there must be stories from every origin and every orientation and that this has to be normal in 2019.”

The texture these stories and the diverse and international cast brings to this English-speaking tween show is arguably one of the reasons for its success: The 26 x 26-minute show only launched at MIPCOM 2017 and Cottonwood is already bringing season three to MIPTV.

While gender and ethnicity appear to be high on the agenda in kids TV, shows featuring disabled children appear less visible, but this is also changing.

French animation outfit Xilam launched its first pre-school property Paprika two years ago, featuring two twins, one of whom is a wheelchair user.

BGM is also developing the animated series Ricky Rockets, which Bristow says was brought to the company with the theme tune written by a famous Canadian musician, whose wheelchair-using nephew plays in a rock band.

For Ed Galton, CCO and managing director at CAKE – which distributes and exec produced seasons one and two of CBeebies animated hit Pablo – you can never have too many shows that positively champion inclusivity, but, he stresses, “they need to be told with entertainment and storytelling at their heart”.

Produced by Paper Owl Films, Pablo details the adventures of a boy with autism, using stories inspired, written and voiced by talent with autism. Now on key channels and platforms throughout the world, Pablo has inspired marketing and PR campaigns in local markets, according to Galton.

Its impact on autism awareness is such that 50 new short ‘behind the stories’ films have been made interviewing the writers who reveal their inspiration behind the storylines. They will feature on social media during World Autism Awareness Month throughout April.

The big US kids networks are also stepping up their game to reach what Nickelodeon has referred to as “the most diverse generation ever”.

One notable improvement has been the growing number of female showrunners in animation – a contingent underrepresented in the past.

These include Rebecca Sugar, creator of Cartoon Network’s Steven Universe, which has been praised for its positive depictions of LGBT+ characters.

Other showrunners, many who have made their name on Nickelodeon properties, include Christine Ricci (Dora The Explorer, Nella The Princess Knight, Blaze and the Monster Machines), Farnaz Esnashari-Charmatz (Shimmer & Shine) and Niki Lopez, creator and producer of upcoming Latina pirate adventure, Santiago Of The Seas.


Nickelodeon's The Casagrandes

Elsewhere, top-rated animated series, The Loud House, now in its fourth series, has been praised for its diverse range of characters, including interracial gay parents, and a main character who is bi-sexual.

The Nickelodeon show has inspired equally diverse spin-off series, The Casagrandes, set to premiere on the network this October. Focusing on a Latino family who have a child with Down Syndrome (voiced by an actor with Down syndrome) the award-winning Hispanic-American cartoonist Lalo Alcaraz Coco served as an early cultural consultant on the show.

According Nina Hahn, Senior Vice President (SVP) of international development, Nickelodeon, encouraging showrunners to bring their key experiences to the table – and/or working with consultants to ensure these experiences are authentic – is key. “You need to treat diversity authentically, and not just as a box ticking exercise.

“You also need a very strong creator at the centre who has a story to tell. [show creator Chris Savino] came from a big family and depicted the life he saw. For us it was a no brainer – we didn’t even think about it as ‘the diverse show’,” she says.

But what about breakthrough international shows coming from other continents? Ubongo, a pan-African content company primarily focused on creating learning resources for young children, has ambitions to create characters as ubiquitous as Dora The Explorer.

That's one big plane. 

The Stratolaunch, the world's largest aircraft that just so happens to be designed to "enable airline-style access to space," successfully took flight for the first time in the Mojave Desert on April 13. The plane is the brainchild of Paul G. Allen's Stratolaunch Systems Corporation, and sports an impressive 385-foot wingspan.

          Stratolaunch completes the first flight of the world's largest airplane      Comment   Translate Page      

Stratolaunch is making some history even as it scales back its ambitions -- the company has successfully flown the world's largest aircraft, the Scaled Composites Stratolaunch, for the first time. The dual-fuselage rocket hauler took off from the Mojave Air and Space Port soon after 10AM Eastern on April 13th and completed a roughly 2.5-hour journey, reaching a maximum altitude of 17,000 feet. It wasn't carrying a payload, but its trip is still a big deal for a machine that was first announced eight years ago and boasts an unprecedented 385-foot wingspan.

          New York Press Club to honor CNN's Jim Acosta with 'Truth to Power' award      Comment   Translate Page      


CNN's Jim Acosta was family booted from the White House press corps, and almost as famously returned to it, after fighting for the microphone and refusing to stop talking when he was directing remarks to President Trump last year.

The hallmark of Acosta's reporting, and indeed career, is as a person who battles Trump from the left, rather than as a reporter or uncoverer of truth in his own right.

Acosta's style - a sort of preachy monologue as opposed to traditional question and answer - doesn't sit will with a lot of conservative viewers, and he's faced a good deal of criticism over it, especially at Trump's rallies.

It is presumably on those grounds, his provocateur milieu, on which the New York Press club has decided to award him their "Truth to Power" award at their upcoming awards dinner.

For a refresher in how Acosta's job as Trump foil has sky-rocketed his career, you can do worse than to read this explainer from last year at the Daily Wire. But if you want a more recent example, Glenn Beck's biting commentary here is a must.

In the press release announcing his selection, the NYPC said the purpose of the award, which is named for journalist Gabe Pressman, is designed to honor ""an individual whose body of work challenges the power establishment and/or defends journalists."

Perhaps it is meant specifically with regard to the incident with the White House revoking his credentials, against which Fox News joined all the other press organizations in protest, as opposed to his more general job of simply launching social-media quality liberal talking points at any conservative or republican unfortunate enough to be in front of his mic.

The Democrats were sooooo sure they would win in 2016 that the shock of it all is affecting their policy and overall craziness, if it were not actual real life it would be a poorly written soap opera. With the party's big swing to the far left and presidential candidates agreeing with any proposal/idea that the fringe elements come up with (AOC,s green deal amongst others) they are making themselves unelectable apart from snowflake millennials and immigrants, they are in for a big shock next year when Sanders or Warren is the nominee against Trump (I don't think Biden will get the nod) as the voters will get to see the actual cost and job number losses with the promoted socialist Democratic policy.

          'Loonshots' and Our Imagined Higher Ed Futures      Comment   Translate Page      

Loonshots: How to Nurture the Crazy Ideas That Win Wars, Cure Diseases, and Transform Industries by Safi Bahcall

Published in March of 2019.

We are in desperate need of an alternative to disruptive innovation theory. Nowhere is this need greater than in helping us think about the future of higher ed.

Can the ideas in Loonshots provide an alternative innovation framework to higher ed that is offered by disruption theory?

Maybe.  Quite possibly.  I’m optimistic.

Before talking about the book, let’s talk about the future of higher ed.

How much do you think that higher ed must change?  Do you think we need something radically different?  Or are you thinking the way to go is gradual and incremental?  Or are you somewhere (like most people I’d bet) in the middle.

What would radical higher ed change look like? We would probably list things like: a) dramatically lower costs, b) dramatically larger access, c) dramatically lower attrition rates, and d) dramatically better workforce outcomes, and e) dramatically more emphasis on lifetime education.   That is a dramatic list.

Some of us might throw in a wish that a liberal arts education be not reserved for the lucky (and wealthy few).  That small and tuition-dependent liberal arts colleges find some path towards economic resilience.  And that the adjunctification tide recedes, to be replaced with a commitment by universities to expand the number of tenure track positions.

We all have alternative futures that we can imagine for higher education as a system, and for individual colleges and universities.  We can all think of what a better college education might look like, and a fairer and more equitable system of higher education employment.

Loonshots is a book about how ideas once thought to be crazy have a history of changing everything.  The book is full of examples of ideas that were initially dismissed, from rockets to radar and 007 to Buzz Lightyear, which eventually ended up changing the world. (Or at least parts of the world).

Did you know the Nokia engineers had come up with a touch screen based smartphone that runs apps years before Apple introduced the iPhone?  Nokia executives killed the idea.  Loonshots seeks to explain why Apple went on to change how we think about mobile computing, while Nokia’s once dominant cell phone business eventually died.

A loonshot is a big idea or a big goal.  Loonshots always emerge as “ugly babies,” full of warts and flaws and every imaginable problem.

The higher ed loonshot idea that gets me most excited is the dream to create personalized online education at scale. I’m excited about how programs like Georgia Tech’s $7,000 online Masters in Computer Science might change the economics of education and credentialing.

A quality $7,000 masters degree sounds like a loonshot idea to me.  There have to be countless ways in which a program at that cost does not, today, match the quality of more traditionally priced residential and online programs.  There must be a million reasons why every university is not following in the footsteps of Georgia Tech.

How many of us in higher ed are quick to dismiss the idea that quality, radical affordability, and scale can co-exist?

Georgia Tech seems like a place where loonshots are nurtured.

The book Loonshots provides a great deal of excellent advice for how organizations can do that loonshot nurturing.  The author, Safi Bahcall, is a trained physicist as well as a biotech entrepreneur.  His ideas are both abstract (from academic theory), and concrete (from his experience growing biotech companies).

Bahcall argues that organizations must find a way to equally prioritize the “artists” who dream up loonshots and the “soldiers” who execute on operations.  He does not believe that individuals, small groups, or big companies (or universities) can be both artists and soldiers at the same time.  The work of dreaming up crazy ideas, and the work of delivering on current needs, is incompatible.

Any organization that favors one type of task (loonshot or operations) over the other will eventually fail.  Failure will also come if the artists and soldiers have no way of interacting, exchanging ideas, and supporting each other's work.  There must be an organizational equilibrium between the people exploring crazy ideas, and the people that keep the organization from running off the rails.

How often do universities carve out space for loonshots?

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

          Hama province Syria: Israeli rocket attack leaves three people injured      Comment   Translate Page      
Syria has shot down several missiles launched by Israel and targeting the city of Masyaf in northwestern Syria, Syrian state media reported. Three people have been wounded and several buildings destroyed in the attack. The rockets were launched by Israeli warplanes from Lebanese airspace at about 2.30am on Saturday, SANA reported. In response, Syria activated its air defenses and intercepted several missiles, the agency said. The alleged Israeli raid hit a military post in the city and destroyed several buildings. Three people have been reported wounded. Lebanese Al-Masdar News reported, citing a military source on the ground, that Israeli rockets damaged a number of sites near the Masyaf National Hospital. While Israel has not commented on the reported attack, it is presumed that Tel Aviv has made another incursion into Syrian territory to take on alleged Iranian elements there.
          Bird in Running for MVP . . . as Rookie      Comment   Translate Page

Bird in Running for MVP . . . as Rookie

Preliminary honors are beginning to pile up for Larry Bird. He was named as the NBA Player of the Week on Monday, and yesterday it was announced that he had also been chosen as the league's Player of the Month for February. His February accomplishments included scoring 28 points a game, shooting 52 percent from the floor, grabbing 10 rebounds and handing out 5 assists a game, shooting 46 percent (13 for 28) on three-point shots and leading the Celtics to a 9-2 record for the month. During February, Bird had four games in which he had 30 or more points, including his season's high of 45 in Phoenix on Feb. 13. He also had games of 33, 32 and 30, and in the only two games in which he did not score at least 20 points he recorded 8 assists in each.



He's not off to a bad start in March, either. He commenced March activity with his 41-point, four 3-point, 13-rebound gem on Sunday, and last night he continued to roll along by connecting on three more 3-pointers en route to a routine 29-point evening. He has now moved high among the challengers for the league's Most Valuable Player award, which is voted on by the players. Three candidates stand out, the other two being Kareem Abdul-Jabbar (runner-up for the Player of the Month honor) and Julius Erving. Any honest voter should realize that it's currently too close to call, and that ballots should be held
onto as long as possible, pending March results.

The NBA Board of Governors will convene tomorrow in Chicago to discuss realignment now that Dallas has been admitted to the league for the 1980-81 season. The two ideas proposed are to switch Cleveland to the Atlantic Division and insert Dallas into the Central Division with its fellow Texans, or to switch Chicago and Milwaukee into the Central and form a new Midwest Division of Utah, Denver, Kansas City and the three Texas entries. Given the geographic realities, this second idea makes far more sense.

Cedric Maxwell was truly a horse, logging a season's high of 44 minutes played. He battled the aroused Spurs underneath and was particularly outstanding on the boards in the third period . . . Spur coach Bob Bass had spoken of the need to "lay somebody on 'em," and his team responded accordingly. The first half was a cross between a track meet, a rugby scrum and Saturday night in Dodge City, and referees Ed Rush and Hue Hollins did not maintain adequate control . . . The Celtics are now 21-11 on the road, and Fitch had promised the team a dinner on him when they clinched a .500 road record for the season. Well, coachie? . . . "Memoirs of a Hot Dog," the autobiography being compiled by Larry Kenon, received a new chapter last night when Mr. K, the celebrated self-styled "best all-around forward in basketball," shot 0 for 6 in the first half and capped his performance by missing a dunk because he wanted to throw it in backhand instead of straight on. The Celtics took the miss and scored at the other end . . . George Gervin, who had 21 of his 35 points against the Celtics last week in the first quarter, had 16 of his 26 last night in - guess what? - the first quarter . . . The Celtics are on the tube again tonight, when they play the Rockets.

          Marvel finally explained those matching suits in the trailers for ‘Avengers: Endgame’      Comment   Translate Page      
A series of toy leaks months ago revealed that several of the surviving Avengers would don matching white suits in Avengers: Endgame, similar to the armor that Hank Pym wore in Ant-Man and the Wasp to go to the Quantum Realm. Theories soon formed around those toys leaks, as fans expected the heroes to find a way to travel through time with the help of Scott Lang’s knowledge of Pym's work and the Quantum Realm. The Endgame directors then said in an interview that those toy leaks might not reflect the final version in the film, but that didn’t change the fact that both Lego and Hasbro had Avengers minifigs and figurines dressed up in Quantum Realm suits (that’s what we ended up calling them for lack of an official explanation). Soon after that, Marvel released new trailers and Endgame footage that showed several of the Avengers wearing the white outfits. And now we finally have an explanation about the new armor. Before we proceed, beware that some spoilers may follow below. Marvel dropped an Endgame trailer featuring several of the Avengers wearing the white suits, including Captain America, Iron Man, Nebula, Hawkeye, Black Widow, and War Machine. At the time, I wondered how many of the Avengers would wear the new suits, thinking that Marvel may have altered those scenes to make it look as if more team members would embark on the same mission. In a clip released a few days ago, we also got to see Rocket in the same white suit. In total, nine heroes would wear the uniforms, if the clip shows footage that will make it into the final cut of the film, which prompted us to speculate that one of them is Hulk/Professor Hulk. But Marvel has never explained why they have the suits, and what purpose they serve. After all, the Avengers each have their own costume. Even though they’ve been fighting as a team for years, they’ve never had matching outfits. One reason for not having them all dressed in similar battle gear is that the heroes are much easier to identify visually because of their unique suits. You can tell them apart with ease no matter how complex the battle sequence is because each of them wears whatever he or she feels comfortable wearing in battle. We’ve speculated for months now that, just as Hank and Ant-Man need suits to survive the trip to the Quantum Realm, every other Avenger who will join Lang will need similar protection. Some theories even speculated that the suits will let them survive in space, and they’re made of the same nanoparticles that Tony Stark uses for his Iron Man suit. The housing of these suits will be on the wrists of the surviving Avengers, these theories said, which would explain all those leaked photos from the Endgame set that showed several Avengers with an identical wearable parked on their wrists. That’s all the unofficial information about the white suits that’s out there. But Marvel this week finally addressed the uniforms. It was Marvel boss Kevin Feige who addressed the new armor in an interview with io9. “We call them the team suits,” Feige said. “And we early on decided [revealing them] was a big differentiating factor between [Endgame] and the other films. The Avengers have never had matching outfits before, [so] we thought it was a very intriguing image to see something that made this film feel new.” Feige said that Marvel and Disney’s marketing issues weren’t just about hiding spoilers, but also about making sure the audience knows Endgame isn’t Infinity War 2, but a standalone movie. The suits helped with that. “[We had to] make it feel more than just Infinity War II. Because it’s not,” he said. “Those team suits add something fresh to it. As does Hawkeye, as does Captain Marvel. As does Scott Lang.” The fact that the surviving Avengers will wear the same suits does send a powerful message. Whatever happened between them, they’re ready to put their differences aside and work as a team to defeat the most significant threat they’ve encountered so far. Seeing Tony and Steve rocking the team suits in various scenes is a signal that the moment we’ve been dying to see since Civil War is coming soon. The two Avengers leaders will meet for the first time in years and make up. The purpose of the suits isn’t just to let the audience know that Endgame is a new movie, or that the Avengers have grown a lot as a team since the original movie. It's also functional armor. As expected, Feige didn't address that in the interview. We’re probably going to have to wait until April 26th to learn exactly what the suits do and why Stark created them. And Stark wouldn't just create these matching suits without having some solid reasons to do it. How many of the Avengers will wear them while going back in time via the Quantum Realm? Up to nine, if the latest TV spot is accurate, although the clips may be misleading. The Russo brothers confirmed more than once that their trailers mislead the audience on purpose, to protect the plot. With that in mind, Joe Russo also addressed the team suits in the same interview, although he shared even less information about them. “Obviously anything that goes into the trailers is really well considered,” he said. “And whatever people want to take away from that they can take away from that.” The main takeaway from Feige’s revelations is that the suits are real, they’re called the team suits, and we’re going to see them in the film.

          Nostalgia and Comics regenerates      Comment   Translate Page      
As from today, the UK's longest running comic shop, Nostalgia and Comics, is no more... but don't panic! It's had a complete refit and a name change to Worlds Apart. Yes, they still sell comics, - although you'll find them upstairs now, with the ground floor being used for Funko Pops and other merchandise.

Nostalgia and Comics opened in late 1976, founded by Phil Clarke, who had previously played a huge part in the history of comics fandom by organising Britain's first comic convention in 1968. The original Nostalgia and Comics store was a tiny shop on the corner of Hurst Street in Birmingham, which opened in November 1976 as announced in Comic Media News No.28...

...and advertised fully in the following issue...
Art by Mike Higgs.
Shortly after, a second branch was opened to cater for back issues, a few seconds walk away in the subway of Smallbrook Queensway...
Art by Mike Higgs.
By 1979, a new larger premises were opened on the other side of the road at 14/16 Smallbrook Queensway, replacing the previous shops. (The subway shop was sold to Readers World who traded there for a while. The subway no longer exists, having been filled in as part of a redevelopment in Birmingham several years ago.)

With two floors, the new shop at 14/16 Smallbrook Queensway was brighter and more comfortable for customers. They are the same premises still in use today.

Years ago, Phil Clarke gave up ownership of Nostalgia and Comics when it was bought out by the Forbidden Planet International company, although they retained the name Nostalgia and Comics... until today. Now, with a complete refit, the name has been changed to Worlds Apart, which is also the name of a comics shop in Liverpool owned by FPI.

(If you're wondering why they didn't simply call it Forbidden Planet International when they took over, it's because they can't if there's a rival Forbidden Planet in the same town. Yes, there are two companies with similar names. It's complicated. Basically, the owners fell out years ago and both claimed the name for their rival shops. Forbidden Planet International with the black/gold/white branding is one company, whilst Forbidden Planet with the white/red/black rocket logo is a different company.)

I guess it makes sense for the sake of unity and branding to use the Worlds Apart name for their shops, but for many of us it's a sad loss to see the name Nostalgia and Comics go after more than 40 years. I was one of the original customers back in the 1970s and was a regular for many years, meeting up with other customers on a Saturday or Thursday before heading off for our weekly pie and a pint or whatever. Admittedly I don't visit as often as I used to but I'm sure it's still a great community spot for readers and will continue to be so under its new name.

Goodbye then, Nostalgia and Comics, but here's wishing Worlds Apart a bright and prosperous future!

That's one big plane. 

The Stratolaunch, the world's largest aircraft that just so happens to be designed to "enable airline-style access to space," successfully took flight for the first time in the Mojave Desert on April 13. The plane is the brainchild of Paul G. Allen's Stratolaunch Systems Corporation, and sports an impressive 385-foot wingspan. 

SEE ALSO: SpaceX landed three of its boosters for the first time, and yep, it was impressive

          LeBron James opened an experimental school for kids thought to be 'irredeemable,' and it's working      Comment   Translate Page      

Less than a year after opening, a LeBron James-funded experimental elementary school for at-risk children appears to be proving successful. It’s too soon to fully quantify the impact that Akron’s I Promise School—a public institution funded in partnership by the city school district and the LeBron James Family Foundation—has had and will have on the roughly 240 students currently enrolled. Yet these children, once viewed as hopeless and “irredeemable” by Akron City Schools educators, are already putting up numbers that have dazzled their legendary NBA benefactor and hometown hero.

The students’ scores reflect their performance on the Measures of Academic Progress assessment, a nationally recognized test administered by NWEA, an evaluation association. In reading, where both classes had scored in the lowest, or first, percentile, third graders moved to the ninth percentile, and fourth graders to the 16th. In math, third graders jumped from the lowest percentile to the 18th, while fourth graders moved from the second percentile to the 30th.

The 90 percent of I Promise students who met their goals exceeded the 70 percent of students districtwide, and scored in the 99th growth percentile of the evaluation association’s school norms, which the district said showed that students’ test scores increased at a higher rate than 99 out of 100 schools nationally.

What does that mean, exactly? Essentially, these kids—who are in third and fourth grade this year—tested below 99% of the country last year. This year, their scores increased more than all but one of 100 schools across the nation. 

x

Yet even with those skyrocketing rates of improvement, these children still aren’t meeting standards for their grade level. How is that possible? In a telephone interview with the New York Times, James, 34, explained that the numbers show just how far behind these children were to begin with.

          SASK RUSH MOVE INTO FIRST PLACE IN NLL      Comment   Translate Page      

San Diego, CA - A seven-goal outburst in the third quarter lifted the Saskatchewan Rush to a victory and
into first place in the NLL’s West Division.

Ben McIntosh counted four of his six goals on the night during the third as the Rush (9-6) dropped the San Diego Seals 14-8 on the road at Pechanga Arena. The win moved the reigning league champs one-half game ahead of the expansion club atop the West standings and, just as importantly, gives the Rush the season-series edge over the Seals (9-7).

“One of those nights that the ball seemed to have eyes and found the back of the net,” said McIntosh, who has been the Seal-hunter this season. Through the three regular-season meetings, McIntosh has totaled 14 goals and 10 assists for 24 points.

“We thought we had done a decent job in the first half, but we had to get to the middle. We made some adjustments, the shots came, and that helped us out a lot.”

The teams struggled through a defensive-minded opening half with the Rush jumping ahead 3-2 before halftime as McIntosh clicked on a power play and Curtis Knight tallied on a McIntosh pass just 77 seconds later. Once the third quarter got under way, the Rush completely took over the game.

Ryan Keenan pushed the Rush ahead by two as his shot trickled through the legs of Seals goalie Frank Scigliano. Just over a minute later, McIntosh found all kinds of space in the slot to head towards the net and then pick the far corner. Only 1:30 later, McIntosh completed his hat trick as he rumbled towards the net, put a swim move on the Seals defender, and then bounced a shot home from in tight. Saskatchewan went ahead 7-2 when Mike Messenger finished off a transition opportunity as he went airborne at the edge of the crease and slammed a shot in. Just 26 later, McIntosh collected his fourth of the night with a laser from outside.

The Rush’s seven-goal run, including five goals in 5:32, was briefly interrupted by two goals from the Seals, but Saskatchewan got the offence fired up again. McIntosh notched his fifth with a rocket to the top corner past a screened Scigliano and Mark Matthews followed shortly afterwards with a hot shot in transition on a pass from Matt Hossack.

In the fourth, McIntosh tucked his sixth of the game for the sock trick in between tallies from Matthews and Marty Dinsdale. McIntosh’s final goal, coming on a sidearm shot from the wing, was enough to finally get Scigliano out of the Seals net. Matthews, whose goal opened the fourth quarter, was a unique tally as he put a shot inside the far post using his left hand. Dinsdale scored back-to-back goals for the Rush, both coming against Saskatchewan’s former backup Tyler Carlson.

Brett Mydske had the Rush’s other goal – their only tally of the first quarter – while Jeff Shattler registered five assists.

Adam Shute racked up 32 saves in the Rush net to earn his third victory of the season.
The Rush are right back at it Saturday night when they return home to SaskTel Centre to host the Philadelphia Wings.

          Marciello arranca al frente en Monza con el Mercedes #88      Comment   Translate Page      
gt-sin-hora-201956481-1555176512_1.jpg

Raffaele Marciello y el Mercedes #88 han terminado en lo más alto de la sesión de pre-clasificación de las 3 Horas de Monza. El piloto italiano ha firmado un tiempo de 1:47.645 para colocar en primera posición el GT3 que comparte con Michael Meadows y Vincent Abril. Aunque todo está por decidir, de momento el duelo en el autódromo italiano parece cosa de los coches más rápidos de Mercedes y Lamborghini, toda vez que Marco Mapelli ha terminado segundo con el Lamborghini #563, mientras que Maro Engel ha colocado el Mercedes #4 en tercera posición. En esta misma línea, el Lamborghini #519 ha sido cuarto.

Antes de la sesión de pre-clasificación, los pilotos y equipos de la Endurance Cup disfrutaban de dos sesiones de test junto a los participantes de la Blancpain GT Sports Club. Dos sesiones en las que Andy Soucek con el Bentley #108 y Vincent Abril con el Mercedes #88 terminaban con el tiempo más rápido. Además, como es habitual, también se celebraba la sesión destinada a los pilotos 'Bronze' en la que el mejor tiempo corría de la cuenta de Chris Buncombe con el Ferrari #93 de Tempesta Racing. El trazado pasaba de mojado a seco a lo largo del viernes, dejando distintas condiciones en cada sesión.

Ya en la jornada del sábado, Markus Winkelhock era el encargado de dominar los libres a los mandos del Audi #26 de Saintéloc Racing. El piloto alemán firmaba un tiempo de 1:47.720 con el que superaba por décima y media a Mirko Bortolotti, piloto más rápido del Lamborghini #63. Andrea Bertolini colocaba el Ferrari #52 de AF Corse en tercer lugar, relegando al Mercedes #88 a la cuarta posición. A lo largo de la sesión hubo varias banderas rojas, siendo el parón más significativo el provocado por el accidente de Jack Hawksworth con el Mercedes #43 en la 'Variante Ascari'.

gt-sin-hora-201956481-1555176515_2.jpg

La sesión de pre-clasificación se escribía en clave Mercedes, toda vez que Raffaele Marciello se llevaba el mejor tiempo a los mandos del Mercedes #88. El italiano lograba un 1:47.645 con el que superaba por 281 milésimas a Marco Mapelli y su Lamborghini #563. Siguiendo la estela de la pasada temporada, Maro Engel colocaba el Mercedes #4 en tercera posición, certificando que los vigentes campeones de la Endurance Cup siguen igual de fuertes. Franck Perera, en una muestra de su natural velocidad a una vuelta, ha sido cuarto con el Lamborghini #519, lo que ha llevado a los Audi #25 y #2 -en el que compite Álex Riberas- a ser quinto y sexto respectivamente.

En clave española, la sesión ha dejado de pre-clasificación ha bastantes dudas. Más allá del sexto puesto del Audi #2 de Álex Riberas, hay que remontarse hasta el puesto 22º para dar con el Bentley #108 de Andy Soucek, si bien la vuelta más rápida ha sido de Maxime Soulet. Un puesto por detrás ha terminado el Audi #5 de Iván Pareras, mientras que el Ferrari #72 de Miguel Molina ha sido 33º. Por su parte, Toni Forné ha colocado el Audi #29 en el 39º lugar en una sesión que ha tenido dos banderas rojas, una de ellas por el fuerte accidente del Porche #99 de ROWE Racing.

          World's largest plane makes first flight over California      Comment   Translate Page      

World's largest plane makes first flight over CaliforniaThe white airplane called Roc, which has a wingspan the length of an American football field and is powered by six engines on a twin fuselage, took to the air shortly before 7 a.m. Pacific time (1400 GMT) and stayed aloft for more than two hours before landing safely back at the Mojave Air and Space Port as a crowd of hundreds of people cheered. "We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today’s flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman’s Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port." The plane is designed to drop rockets and other space vehicles weighing up to 500,000 pounds at an altitude of 35,000 feet and has been billed by the company as making satellite deployment as "easy as booking an airline flight." Saturday's flight, which saw the plane reach a maximum speed of 189 miles per hour and altitudes of 17,000 feet, was meant to test its performance and handling qualities, according to Stratolaunch.

          World's largest plane successfully completes maiden flight      Comment   Translate Page      

Los Angeles, April 14 (IANS) The world's largest aircraft, developed by aerospace venture Stratolaunch, completed its first flight test on Saturday.

With a dual fuselage design and wingspan greater than the length of an American football field, the airplane took off from Mojave Air and Space Port in California at 6:58 am (Pacific Time), said Stratolaunch in a statement, Xinhua reported.

Achieving a maximum speed of 189 miles (302.4 km) per hour, the plane flew for 2.5 hours over the Mojave Desert at altitudes up to 17,000 feet.

As part of the initial flight, the pilots evaluated aircraft performance and handling qualities before landing successfully back at the Mojave Air and Space Port, according to the company's statement.

"What a fantastic first flight," said Jean Floyd, CEO of Stratolaunch.

"Today's flight furthers our mission to provide a flexible alternative to ground launched systems. We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today's flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman's Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port," he added.

Regarding initial results from Saturday's test flight, Stratolaunch said the test team performed a variety of flight control maneuvers to calibrate speed and test flight control systems, including roll doublets, yawing maneuvers, pushovers and pull-ups, and steady heading side slips.

Moreover, it conducted simulated landing approach exercises at a max altitude of 15,000 feet mean sea level.

Stratolaunch was founded by the late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen in 2011 to develop the large carrier airplane as a flying launch pad for orbital-class rockets.

The aircraft has a world-record wingspan of 385 feet, and is 238 feet long. It is wider than any airplane on the planet. It weighs half a million pounds, according to a CNN report.

"A historic milestone for the #Stratolaunch team with this record setting aircraft taking flight! This is about going to the edge of space and beyond!" tweeted Thomas Zurbuchen, associate administrator for NASA Science Mission Directorate.

"I only wish the late @PaulGAllen could see this - his memory and impact lives on," he tweeted.

Dozens of photographers, industry bloggers and aerospace enthusiasts gathered this week to glimpse the unique twin-fuselage plane.

Los Angeles, April 14 (IANS) The world's largest airplane, developed by aerospace venture Stratolaunch, flew into the air for its first flight test on Saturday.

          Stratolaunch, the giant aircraft developed by Paul Allen, just took its first flight in California      Comment   Translate Page      

Stratolaunch flight(AP Photo/Matt Hartman)

  • The Stratolaunch, an aircraft developed to air-launch small satellites, took its first flight on Saturday.
  • Stratolaunch calls its aircraft the world's largest, and it has the world's longest wingspan, though other aircraft exceed it in length.
  • Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A giant six-engine aircraft with the world's longest wingspan landed its first flight after some two hours in the air Saturday.

The behemoth, twin-fuselage Stratolaunch jet lifted off from Mojave Air and Space Port and climbed into the desert sky 70 miles north of Los Angeles. Founded by the late billionaire Paul G. Allen, Stratolaunch is vying to be a contender in the market for air-launching small satellites.

The aircraft is designed to carry as many as three satellite-laden rockets at a time under the center of its enormous wing, which stretches 385 feet — a longer wingspan than any other aircraft. At an altitude of 35,000 feet, the rockets would be released, ignite their engines and soar into space.

The advantages of such air-launch systems include being able to use numerous airports and avoid the limitations of fixed launch sites which can be affected by weather, air traffic and ship traffic on ocean ranges.

(AP Photo/Matt Hartman)

Allen, the cofounder of Microsoft, founded Stratolaunch Systems Corp. in 2011 after emerging in aerospace by funding the development of the experimental air-launched SpaceShipOne, which in 2004 became the first privately built manned rocket to reach space.

After Allen's death in October 2018, Stratolaunch dropped plans to develop its own type of rocket engine and a family of launch vehicles, focusing instead on getting the giant plane airborne and launching Northrop Grumman's proven Pegasus XL.

In the end, the four-time reigning Western Conference champion Golden State Warriors remain heavy favorites to bring home a third consecutive NBA title. Back east, the Milwaukee Bucks won a league-best 60 games. They’ll be challenged by talented teams such as the Toronto Raptors, Philadelphia 76ers and Boston Celtics. The good team over at My Top Sports Book put together some rather interesting odds for the playoffs. Here are some of the highlights. Warriors overwhelming favorites Golden State heads into the playoffs at -120 (or with 5-6 odds) to defend their championship.

          Dems defend Omar after Trump retweets video against her      Comment   Translate Page      
WASHINGTON – Top Democrats on Saturday rushed to defend Rep. Ilhan Omar after President Donald Trump retweeted video that was edited to suggest she was being dismissive of the significance of the worst terrorist assault on U.S. soil.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi scolded Trump for using the “painful images of 9/11 for a political attack” against the first-term Minnesota Democrat.

And presidential candidate Elizabeth Warren, campaigning in New Hampshire, accused Trump of “trying to incite violence and to divide us, and every political leader should speak out against that.”

The video Trump retweeted Friday pulls a snippet of Omar’s recent speech to the Council on American-Islamic Relations in which she described the 2001 terrorist attack on the World Trade Center as “some people did something,” and includes news footage of the hijacked planes hitting the Twin Towers. Trump also tweeted, “WE WILL NEVER FORGET!”

Omar’s remark has drawn criticism largely from political opponents and conservatives who say the lawmaker, one of the first Muslim women to serve in Congress, offered a flippant description of the assailants and the attacks that killed about 3,000 people.

Neither Trump’s tweet nor the video included her full quote or the context of her comments.

Omar told CAIR in Los Angeles that many Muslims saw their civil liberties eroded after the attacks, and she advocated for activism.

“For far too long we have lived with the discomfort of being a second-class citizen and, frankly, I’m tired of it, and every single Muslim in this country should be tired of it,” she said in the March 23 speech, according to video posted online. “CAIR was founded after 9/11 because they recognized that some people did something and that all of us were starting to lose access to our civil liberties.”

CAIR was founded in 1994, according to its website, but its membership skyrocketed after the attacks.

Many Republicans and conservative outlets expressed outrage at Omar’s remarks. Fellow Democrats, including some who have disagreed with Omar in the past, defended her.

“First Member of Congress to ever describe terrorists who killed thousands of Americans on 9/11 as ‘some people who did something,’ ” tweeted Rep. Dan Crenshaw, R-Texas. The retired Navy SEAL lost his right eye in 2012 in an explosion in Afghanistan.

“Here’s your something,” the New York Post blared on its cover beneath a photograph of the flaming towers.

Pelosi, who was in Germany visiting U.S. troops Saturday, said in a statement that “the memory of 9/11 is sacred ground” and should always be discussed “with reverence.” The California Democrat said it is wrong for Trump to “fan the flames to make anyone less safe.”

Omar didn’t appear to be backing down.

She tweeted a quote from President George W. Bush, who said days after the attacks: “The people – and the people who knocked these buildings down will hear all of us soon!”

“Was Bush downplaying the terrorist attack?” Omar tweeted. “What if he was a Muslim.”

Several of the 2020 Democratic presidential candidates condemned Trump’s tweet.

Former Texas Rep. Beto O’Rourke said the Republican president’s tweet was an “incitement to violence” against Omar, who is Muslim-American, and others like her. O’Rourke, campaigning in South Carolina, likened the tweet to Trump’s rhetoric about Mexicans, described in the past by Trump as murderers and rapists. O’Rourke said “there is a cost and there is a consequence” to Trump’s comments.

Warren, a Massachusetts senator, said Republican leaders in Congress “cannot take a pass on this, cannot look the other way and pretend it isn’t happening. It is happening. And those who don’t speak out in the Republican leadership are complicit in what he is doing. It’s wrong.”

Minnesota Sen. Amy Klobuchar noted that a New York man recently was charged with threatening Omar’s life.

“The video the president chose to send out today will only incite more hate,” Klobuchar said. “You can disagree with her words – as I have done before – but this video is wrong. Enough.”

Sen. Bernie Sanders of Vermont said Omar “won’t back down to Trump’s racism and hate, and neither will we.”

Omar repeatedly has pushed fellow Democrats into uncomfortable territory over Israel and the strength of the Jewish state’s influence in Washington. She apologized for suggesting that lawmakers support Israel for pay and said she isn’t criticizing Jews. But she refused to take back a tweet in which she suggested American supporters of Israel “pledge allegiance” to a foreign country.

Her comments sparked an ugly episode among House Democrats after they responded with a resolution condemning anti-Semitism and the measure became a broader declaration against all forms of bigotry.

Me personally, I’m getting back into tulips instead of crypto. It has been a few centuries of a lull, but I really feel like the tulip bulls are back and have seen prices going up a couple cents here and there so there is definitely some movement. In fact, I saw a neighbor plant some fresh bulbs just yesterday which is more than enough of a cue to get back in.


I have found tulips to be a bad investment. They bloom for one year and don’t come up the next year. Chipmunks (I think) dig up the bulbs and eat them.


Ah, you haven’t been keeping up on the technology! There is a new bioengineered tulip that uses a technology called tulipchain, which guarantees that the tulip bulb will clone and come up year after year so that you will never lose the initial value of your tulip purchase. In addition, each year the flower modifies its coloring to become even more complex and beautiful. I suggest buying in now before the market really skyrockets. With these new tulips, the seeds take longer and longer to grow over each tulip generation which makes the next tulip batch harder to acquire, so I feel like tulip mining will be really profitable in the beginning and those that get in early have the most to gain.

Who needs this, other than drug dealers, pedophiles, and other criminals? There are very few legitimate use cases. Even if you find one, cash is probably a better fit anyway, as bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies are only really anonymous if you don't transfer in and out of fiat money.


You don't need to be a criminal to want to privacy. For most transactions, the amount of privacy that bitcoin offers is enough.




Commenting because I want to reconcile a few things after doing fairly extensive research on bitcoin. Whatever the merits of bitcoin are, it's not a tulip, but it's no investment either--and it's not a currency in any traditional sense of the word. A cryptocurrency is really the definition of something new. Trying to pigeon-hole it into Tulip, Investment, or Currency is like trying to fit a round peg into a square hole. There's no need for it. We can accept it for what it is.



I think the more charitable use case for what a crypto is --not what it aspires to be--but what it actually is right now at this moment, is a method of transacting, inefficiently, through a medium that is private. How private? So private that in theory, the transaction can be 100% untrackable. (you must use something other than bitcoin overtly to do this)



If you follow the online forums, just like the bogleheads have a particular psychology, so too do crypto adherents have their own psychology. I'm sure some of them deal in illicit activity, but there are many many of them that have an anti-government, anti-establishment, conspiracy theory minded slant. Just watch some of their youtube channels. Obviously I'm not here to comment on that. What I am here to comment on is where the value of crypto-currencies derives from. Wheres the faith?



The faith interestingly comes from a lack of faith, in the system, a lack of faith in government and institutions. On bogleheads, we've seen this mania already many times. Why do people consistently believe the sky is about to fall in the stock markets, why do people push gold, why do people constantly push ideas of recession, etc. It's a kind of anti-faith. Faith in the failure of the system--faith because the belief exceeds evidence the system/market is about to collapse.



The value of cryptocurrencies, illicit purposes aside, derives from a faith in the failing of the system. Nisiprius pointed out one of the central ideas of the early uses cases was that transaction friction would be so great, that transacting with bitcoin would be cheaper.



It makes sense too. If you think the banks are out to get you so that they'll impose all kinds of intermediate surchases, if you think government laws are inefficient making movement of money across borders inefficient, therein lies the value for cryptos, at the additional cost of ridiculous amounts of volatility and risk, and at the additional cost of total loss due to fraud. The value of crypto-currencies, even at this moment, is derived from costs imposed by governments and institutions, including the lack of faith by those governments and institutions.



In extreme cases like Venezuela, where the hyperinflation is in fact significantly higher than even the ridiculous volatility of bitcoin, there is some value to be had. see this article from the New York Times "Bitcoin Has Saved My Family"

https://www.nytimes.com/2019/02/23/opin ... ncies.html





For these reasons, I don't think cryptos will ever die. But I'm not sure they will or can ever take off.



Let's look at a legitimate use case. I want to buy a cup of coffee from starbucks.

There is nothing complex about that transaction technologically. Debit the cost of the coffee from me, Credit Starbucks. It can be done with a simple database. One computer. Yes you can increase the number of computers for redundancy, and atomicity of the transactions.



But compare it with bitcoin. Instead of using one database, you literally have to propagate the transaction through every node on the bitcoin network. That cannot possibly scale. Bitcoin uses a distributed blockchain ledger, established through consensus. How can it be that every time I buy a coffee, you need to update every single ledger on the network? What's more, every node needs a copy of the entire ledger---every single transaction that ever took place. In my prior comment I wrote that in trying to get a basic ethereum wallet to work, I found I could not because at this point the ethereum ledger has grown to exceed a terabyte.



It would be like if Visa decided that every single computer in the Visa financial network has to have the entire copy of the entire ledger of transactions that have ever taken place, and that with each new subsequent transaction, the update has to be propagated to every node. That's not hyperbole. That is in fact the technology.



Every node on the ethereum network needs a copy of a file that is already over a terabyte in size.

From a technological perspective, what this means is that idea that bitcoin has a use case in everyday transactions is for all intents and purposes impossible. It is significantly more inefficient than existing methods, and will forever be significantly more inefficient. There's just no two ways about this. Whether you want to use a tangle, a DAG, a lightning network, or some form of reconciled segregated witness, you're always going to be far more inefficient than an ordinary centralized network.



Which goes back to what I said before. The value of crypto derives not from trust, but a lack of trust. In a world where truly (and I mean truly truly) you can't trust anyone, it has value. But in a world where trust is reasonable, its value is minimal.



That is about as charitable as an interpretation I can give to the crypto cause at this time.

          World’s Largest Plane Makes First Flight Over California      Comment   Translate Page      
The world’s largest aircraft took off over the Mojave Desert in California Saturday, the first flight for the carbon-composite plane built by Stratolaunch Systems Corp., started by late Microsoft co-founder Paul Allen, as the company enters the lucrative private space market. The white airplane called Roc, which has a wingspan the length of an American football field and is powered by six engines on a twin fuselage, took to the air shortly before 7 a.m. Pacific time (1400 GMT) and stayed aloft for more than two hours before landing safely back at the Mojave Air and Space Port as a crowd of hundreds of people cheered. First flight 'fantastic' “What a fantastic first flight,” Stratolaunch Chief Executive Officer Jean Floyd said in a statement posted to the company’s website. “Today’s flight furthers our mission to provide a flexible alternative to ground launched systems,” Floyd said. “We are incredibly proud of the Stratolaunch team, today’s flight crew, our partners at Northrup Grumman’s Scaled Composites and the Mojave Air and Space Port.” The plane is designed to drop rockets and other space vehicles weighing up to 500,000 pounds at an altitude of 35,000 feet and has been billed by the company as making satellite deployment as “easy as booking an airline flight.” Saturday’s flight, which saw the plane reach a maximum speed of 189 mph and altitudes of 17,000 feet, was meant to test its performance and handling qualities, according to Stratolaunch. Demand for satellite deployment Allen, who co-founded Microsoft with Bill Gates in 1975, announced in 2011 that he had formed the privately funded Stratolaunch. The company seeks to cash in on higher demand in coming years for vessels that can put satellites in orbit, competing in the United States with other space entrepreneurs and industry stalwarts such as Elon Musk’s SpaceX and United Launch Alliance, a partnership between Boeing and Lockheed Martin. Stratolaunch has said that it intends to launch its first rockets from the Roc in 2020 at the earliest. Allen died in October 2018 while suffering from non-Hodgkins’ lymphoma, just months after the plane’s development was unveiled. “We all know Paul would have been proud to witness today’s historic achievement,” said Jody Allen, Chair of Vulcan Inc and Trustee of the Paul G. Allen Trust. “The aircraft is a remarkable engineering achievement and we congratulate everyone involved.”

          TECHNOLOGY TRANSFER OPPORTUNITY: A One-piece Liquid Rocket Thrust Chamber Assembly (MFS-TOPS-93)      Comment   Translate Page      


NASA's Technology Transfer Program solicits inquiries from companies interested in obtaining license rights to commercialize, manufacture and market the following technology.  License rights may be issued on an exclusive or nonexclusive basis and may include specific fields of use.  NASA provides no funding in conjunction with these potential licenses.

THE TECHNOLOGY: 


NASA is developing a lightweight one-piece regeneratively-cooled thrust chamber assembly (TCA) for liquid rocket engines. Liquid rocket engines create thrust through the expansion of combusted propellants within the TCA. Standard manufacturing of TCAs involves individually building the injector, main combustion chamber and nozzle, and then bolting or welding the components together at the joints. However, potential seal failures in these complex joints can cause catastrophic explosions, as in the tragedy of the Space Shuttle Challenger.  NASA researchers are eliminating complex joints by manufacturing a 1-piece TCA utilizing 3D printing and large-scale additive manufacturing technologies to directly deposit the nozzle onto the combustion chamber. And, by replacing a traditional solid metal jacket with a composite overwrap for support, the overall weight is reduced by over 40%. Developed under the Rapid Analysis and Manufacturing Propulsion Technology (RAMPT) project, NASA seeks public-private partnerships to develop specialized large-scale additive manufacturing vendors and accelerate reliable spaceflight hardware to the US supply chain.

http://jumpingjackflashhypothesis.blogspot.com/2012/02/jumping-jack-flash-hypothesis-its-gas.html




The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

The seas, lakes and oceans are now pluming deadly hydrogen sulfide and suffocating methane. Hydrogen sulfide is a highly toxic water-soluble heavier-than-air gas and will accumulate in low-lying areas. Methane is slightly more buoyant than normal air and so will be all around, but will tend to contaminate our atmosphere from the top down. These gases are sickening and killing oxygen-using life all around the world, including human life, as our atmosphere is increasingly poisoned. Because both gases are highly flammable and because our entire civilization is built around fire and flammable fuels, this is leading to more fires and explosions. This is an extinction level event and will likely decimate both the biosphere and human population and it is debatable whether humankind can survive this event.




A. More fires and more explosions, especially along the coasts, but everywhere generally.
B. Many more animal die-offs, of all kinds, and especially oceanic species.
C. More multiples of people will be found dead in their homes, as if they'd dropped dead.
D. More corpses found in low-lying areas, all over the world.
E. More unusual vehicular accidents.
F. Improved unemployment numbers as people die off.

Quote: "If California wildfires continue to be as devastating as they have been the last two years, millions of customers’ electric rates could skyrocket 50% and threaten the state’s ability to execute some of its top clean energy initiatives, according to a new analysis prepared for Gov. Gavin Newsom. The sharp rate rise would be worse for Pacific Gas and Electric Co. customers, whose bills could double in just one year, said Steven Weissman, an emeritus lecturer at UC Berkeley’s Goldman School of Public Policy, in a Wednesday memo to a Newsom administration official."
