          Long, snowy winters taking toll on Yellowstone elk      Comment   Translate Page      

BILLINGS – Two consecutive hard winters are weakening the health of Yellowstone’s northern elk herd.

An annual report detailing a March 17-19 aerial count was released last week showing the population was holding fairly steady at about 5,800, but calf-to-cow ratios have been low and many animals appeared to be in poor health.

“We are probably going to see a little bit of a decline,” said Karen Loveless, a Fish, Wildlife & Parks wildlife biologist based in Livingston, Montana, who helps conduct the counts.

Fewer calves

“Conditions in the Dome Mountain area were unusually severe, and we observed low ratios of calves (11.5 calves:100 cows) and yearling bulls (4.4 yearling bulls:100 cows),” Loveless wrote in a synopsis. “Conditions in Gardiner Basin north of YNP appeared to be less severe as compared to Dome Mountain and within (Yellowstone National Park). Calf ratios were higher (22.3 calves:100 cows) in Gardiner Basin however many elk appeared to be in poor condition in this area as well. This is the second consecutive year with calf ratios below the threshold of 20 calves per 100 cows considered necessary to maintain a stable population. It is likely that additional winter mortalities will occur into spring, further reducing overall numbers and recruitment.”

Hard winters can affect elk populations in a couple of ways. They can result in poor health of the animals, which kills them outright, often in the spring as green grass starts growing. A difficult winter can cause a pregnant cow to absorb its fetus. Calves that are born may get poor nutrition from their weakened mother’s milk.

Loveless said there’s no evidence that brucellosis, a disease that infects the Northern Range elk herd and can cause elk cows to abort, seems to have any population level impacts.

“Low calf numbers are to be expected when winters are this tough,” Loveless said.

Yearling bull numbers have also declined, down 42 percent from 2016.


Most of the Northern Range herd – 75% this winter – continues to migrate out of the park, a trend that has remained high since 2011. Typically, that migration to areas like the Gardiner Basin and Dome Mountain Wildlife Management Area is a trip to a place with less snow than they would encounter in the park. That wasn’t necessarily the case this winter.

About 2 feet of snow fell in mid- to late February in the Paradise Valley.

“It got slammed,” Loveless said. “It was more severe in Dome Mountain than anywhere else. So the elk are really low.”

Heavy snow pushed elk onto agricultural land where they are not welcomed by ranchers who want to keep the brucellosis-infected wildlife separated from their cattle to avoid infection.

“It was a really challenging winter for managing commingling,” Loveless said.

Under its management plan, FWP tries to keep livestock and elk separated, either by using herders to move the elk out of ag fields, by calling hunters to kill animals or issuing kill permits to landowners. With so much snow, Loveless said there was nowhere to push elk off of ag fields. What’s more, the elk were in such a weakened state that even shooting cracker shells at their feet didn’t prompt them to move, she said.


Last year’s elk survey showed significantly more animals – up about 2,200 animals from 2017. The theory was that elk that traditionally migrated to Wyoming from the park in the winter were blocked by early snow and instead were diverted to the Paradise Valley.

In talking with her counterpart at Wyoming Game and Fish in Cody, Loveless said the biologist did see more elk up high in bighorn sheep country this February.

“Maybe this year more stayed and last year they got pushed down,” Loveless said.

The total elk count in 2017 was about 5,300 animals. This year the count was 5,800. So the herd seems to be increasing if last year’s high count of 7,500 elk was a fluke.

One asterisk to the numbers is that in past years the government agencies that cooperate on counts make two flights – one by airplane and the other by helicopter. This year, because of the federal government shutdown, only one flight by helicopter was conducted. Helicopter flights, because the craft are more maneuverable and can hover, result in higher counts.


Elk populations in the Gardiner area are the bread and butter for some local hunting outfitters. In 2016, FWP made regulation changes to try to boost the bull elk population, much to the chagrin of some locals.

Yet the changes seem to be working. The number of older brow-tined bulls is up from 93 to 114, a 22% increase in Hunting District 313. Inside the park, that number has increased from 339 to 410, or about 21%.

“We’re not seeing a decline in bulls, so in that respect it’s been successful,” Loveless said.

The ratio of bulls to cows isn’t great, though. “We observed a slight increase from 2.6 brow-tined bulls per 100 cows observed in 2016 to 3.4 in 2019, and a decrease in the proportion of 6-point and greater bulls from 44% to 27%,” Loveless wrote.

Hunter harvest numbers have not been calculated for this past season.

Looking back, “Since the hunting season structure was adjusted in 2016, we observed below average harvest of 103 bulls in 2016 when weather was mild, and above average harvest of 305 bulls in 2017 when severe weather resulted in an early elk migration out of the Park,” Loveless wrote. “Given the mild weather during the 2018 hunting season it is likely that harvest was more similar to 2016, and this may explain the slight increase in brow-tined bulls this year.”

Based on what this past season’s hunting success shows, FWP will decide whether or not to suggest a change in the hunting regulations. Hunters are sacrificing opportunity to help recover bull elk populations.

That may be helpful, based on one trend that is showing up.

“Below average yearling bull and calf recruitment this year is likely to result in lower numbers of brow-tined bulls being recruited into the population over the next two years,” Loveless wrote.

“It’s turned into a social question.”

          Trump Threat      Comment   Translate Page      
In Defying the Odds, we discuss Trump's dishonesty and his record of disregarding the rule of law. The update -- just published --includes a chapter on the 2018 midterms.

Rachel Bade and Nick Miroff at WP:
White House officials have tried to pressure U.S. immigration authorities to release detainees onto the streets of “sanctuary cities” to retaliate against President Trump’s political adversaries, according to Department of Homeland Security officials and email messages reviewed by The Washington Post
Trump administration officials have proposed transporting detained immigrants to sanctuary cities at least twice in the past six months — once in November, as a migrant caravan approached the U.S. southern border, and again in February, amid a standoff with Democrats over funding for Trump’s border wall.
Senior Trump adviser Stephen Miller discussed the proposal with ICE, according to two DHS officials. Matthew Albence, who is ICE’s acting deputy director, immediately questioned the proposal in November.
From February 2018:
President Trump said Thursday he is considering pulling U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement officers from California, warning that the nation’s most populous state would turn into a “crime nest” without the federal agents.

Trump said heavily Democratic California, which gave Hillary Clinton a resounding victory in the 2016 presidential race, was “doing a lousy management job.” He pointed to “a disgrace, the sanctuary city situation” and lamented the “protection of these horrible criminals.”
“Frankly, if I wanted to pull our people from California, you would have a crime nest like you’ve never seen in California. All I’d have to do is say is, ‘ICE and Border Patrol, let California alone,’ you’d be inundated. You would see crime like nobody has ever seen crime in this country.”

He added: “If we ever pulled our ICE out, and we ever said, ‘Hey, let California alone, let them figure it out for themselves,’ in two months they’d be begging for us to come back. They would be begging. And you know what, I’m thinking about doing it.”

          Traffic builds up as long queues return to Lagos fuel stations      Comment   Translate Page      

Fuel queues have returned to Lagos as many petrol retail outlets in some parts of the state shutdown their stations, leading to long queues in a few filling stations that opened.

This is coming after the Nigerian National Petroleum Corporation (NNPC) urged Nigerians to disregard media report of an impending fuel scarcity due to purported refusal by some oil marketers to lift products from depots.

Ndu Ughamadu, NNPC’s group general manager, group public affairs division, had on Thursday issued a statement saying that the tale on fuel scarcity was fabricated by mischief makers with intent to create undue panic among Nigerians.

Ughamadu added that the NNPC has over one billion litres of petrol in stock while imports of 48 vessels of 50million litres each have been committed for the month of April 2019 alone.

But on Saturday morning, long queues were spotted in some filling stations in areas like Ojota, Ogba, Ayobo and Ikeja, creating gridlock problems in the neighbourhoods.

While there was a rapid build-up of queues in some stations along Ikorodu and Awolowo roads in Ikoyi, it is understood that some stations stopped selling their products as early as 7pm on Friday night, causing motorists to struggle to purchase fuel where the product was available.

Meanwhile, oil marketers have pleaded with Nigerians not to engage in panic buying, as the cause of the scarcity has been addressed.

          World Gives America One Year to Stop Trump or Face Sanctions      Comment   Translate Page

by John Feffer
The deputy assistant under secretary general of the United Nations has given the United States a one-year warning. If the country doesn’t clean up its act and become a responsible world citizen, Ithell Colhoquon announced yesterday, the international community will impose sanctions on U.S. government officials and tariffs on U.S. goods and services.
This announcement comes shortly after U.S. President Donald Trump told Mexico that it had one year to stop the flow of illegal drugs into the United States or face the shutdown of the southern border.
When asked what precipitated the international community’s sudden threat to sanction the United States, Colhoquon said, “The ICC decision. That was a line in the sand. That really demonstrated beyond a doubt that the United States is a rogue nation.”
Colhoquon was referring to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo’s denunciation of the International Criminal Court for “attacking America’s rule of law.” The Trump administration has followed up by revoking a visa for an ICC prosecutor looking into possible U.S. war crimes in Afghanistan. The administration has also threatened to arrest and prosecute ICC officials.
“If we could kick the United States out of the ICC, we would do so,” said ICC Third Vice President Elena Ferrante. “But it has always considered itself above the law — and above the ICC.”
Mexico and Canada have applauded the UN decision. Both countries have vowed to close their borders with the United States if the international community’s demands are not met.
Mexico has a wide range of complaints concerning U.S. policy, including the treatment of Mexican nationals, the dumping of U.S. products, and the unregulated trade in U.S. firearms. It has also complained about the enormous market for drugs in the United States, which has transformed Mexican narcotrafficking into an international force.
“Also, we don’t like college students coming down here on spring break,” Mexican Vice President Roberto Bolano recently said. “Every spring we have to deal with a caravan of loud, lazy, good-for-nothing gang members, and we’re tired of it!”
Canada has gone further by declaring the United States a failed state. Canadian President Marie-Claire Blais points to the murder rate in major cities, the opioid epidemic, the crumbling infrastructure, the endemic corruption, the huge gulf between rich and poor, and the authoritarian leadership.
“Sure, we all like our iPhones and Starbucks coffee,” Blais says, “but we can’t let this kind of social chaos spread like bird flu into our country.”
Although the Trump administration has not made any official comments on these recent developments, the U.S. president has been busy on Twitter.
“Everyone at UN is ugly and fat,” he tweeted. “Everyone in Mexico is ugly and stupid. Everyone in Canada smells bad and talks funny. Sad!”
Several countries have rallied behind the United States: Saudi Arabia, Russia, Hungary, North Korea, South Ossetia, the Canary Islands.
“Of course we have to speak up on behalf of the American president,” said Russian Vice Prime Minister Alexander Fadeyev. “You know the famous poem, yes? First they come for the human rights violators. And we say nothing. Then they come for the war criminals. And we say nothing. Then they come for the autocrats. And we still say nothing. So, when they come for us, who will be left to protest?”
When pressed about the actions the United States needs to take in order to return to the good graces of the international community, the UN’s Ithell Colhoquon was very specific. “The removal of Donald Trump is a necessary but not sufficient condition. Mike Pence is just as bad if not worse. So, we recommend that, after a series of public trials, Americans sentence all top-ranking officials of the Trump administration to a decade of community service picking up trash along America’s highways. Oh, and they should be forced to wear pink jumpsuits. Balls and chains would also be a nice touch.”
Response from the American public has been mixed.
“We’re not going to let a bunch of furriners tell us what to do in our own country,” said MAGA Stewart, the president of the Hands Off Trump coalition. As part of their commitment to the president, the members of the coalition have all changed their first names to Make America Great Again, or MAGA for short.
“Sovereignty is a cornerstone of American democracy,” opined Charles Coughlin, a constitutional law professor at the Antonin Scalia Law School at George Mason University. “We can tell other countries what to do, but it’s not a two-way street. In American jurisprudence, we call this the ‘one-way-street principle,’ though it’s also known more colloquially as hypocrisy.”
Support for the UN move, however, could be seen from satellite photographs. In fields and public parks across the United States on Tuesday at noon, Americans lay down to form letters with their bodies to spell out: “Thank you, UN!”
It’s unclear what will happen next in this standoff between the United States and the international community. Several countries have already withdrawn recognition of the Trump government and recognized Nancy Pelosi instead as the legitimate leader of the country. New Zealand has declared that, in the unlikely event that Donald Trump sets foot in the country, he will be immediately charged with crimes against intelligence.
But in perhaps the most significant sign that the international threats are having an effect, Twitter announced that it will suspend President Trump’s account. “Look, I just took the car keys away from my 99-year-old father,” one unnamed Twitter executive said. “Sometimes you just have to do the right thing to make the world a safer place.”

          Install MySQL 8 on Linux with lower_case_table_names = 1      Comment   Translate Page      
Tweet MySQL stores several files on disk. Even in MySQL 8 where the data dictionary is stored in InnoDB tables, there are still all the tablespace files. Different file system behave differently, and one particular challenge is case sensitivity. On Microsoft Windows, the case does not matter, on Linux the case is important, and on macOS the case of the file names is preserved but the operating system by default makes it look like it is case insensitive. Which convention that is the correct depends on your personal preference and use case. Between case sensitivity and case insensitivity, it basically boils down to whether mydb, MyDB, and MYDB should be the same identifier or three different ones. Since MySQL originally relied on the file system for its data dictionary, the default was to rely on the case sensitivity of the file system. The option lower_case_table_names was introduced to override the behaviour. The most common use is to set lower_case_table_names to 1 on Linux to introduce case insensitive schema and table names. This blog will first discuss how lower_case_table_names work in MySQL 8 – it is not the same as in earlier versions. Then it will be shown how MySQL 8 can be initialized on Linux to use case insensitive identifiers. Advice To use case insensitive identifiers in MySQL 8, the main thing is that you must set lower_case_table_names = 1 in your MySQL configuration file before you initialize the data directory (this happens on the first start when using systemd). MySQL 8 and lower_case_table_names In MySQL 8, it is no longer allowed to change the value of the lower_case_table_names option after the data directory has been initialized. This is a safety feature – as described in the reference manual: It is prohibited to start the server with a lower_case_table_names setting that is different from the setting used when the server was initialized. The restriction is necessary because collations used by various data dictionary table fields are based on the setting defined when the server is initialized, and restarting the server with a different setting would introduce inconsistencies with respect to how identifiers are ordered and compared. If you try to start MySQL 8 with a different value of lower_case_table_names than MySQL was initialized, you will get an error like (from the MySQL error log): 2019-04-14T03:57:19.095459Z 1 [ERROR] [MY-011087] [Server] Different lower_case_table_names settings for server ('1') and data dictionary ('0'). 2019-04-14T03:57:19.097773Z 0 [ERROR] [MY-010020] [Server] Data Dictionary initialization failed. 2019-04-14T03:57:19.098425Z 0 [ERROR] [MY-010119] [Server] Aborting 2019-04-14T03:57:20.784893Z 0 [System] [MY-010910] [Server] /usr/sbin/mysqld: Shutdown complete (mysqld 8.0.15) MySQL Community Server - GPL. So what are the steps to initialize MySQL 8 with lower_case_table_names = 1? Let’s go through them. Installing MySQL 8 with Case Insensitive Identifier Names There are several ways to install MySQL 8 on Linux. The steps that will be shown here are: Install the MySQL repository. Remove previous installations of MySQL or one of its forks. Clean the data directory. Install MySQL 8. Initialize with lower_case_table_names = 1. The example commands are from Oracle Linux 7 and also works on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7 and CentOS 7. The MySQL YUM repository will be used. On other Linux distributions the steps will in general be different, but related. 1. Install the MySQL Repository MySQL provides repositories for several Linux distributions for the Community Edition. You can download the repository definition files from MySQL Community Downloads. The files can also be accessed directly. For this example the YUM repository definition will be downloaded using wget and then installed using yum: shell$ wget --2019-04-14 12:28:31-- ... HTTP request sent, awaiting response... 200 OK Length: 25892 (25K) [application/x-redhat-package-manager] Saving to: ‘mysql80-community-release-el7-2.noarch.rpm’ 100%[===========================================================>] 25,892 --.-K/s in 0.01s 2019-04-14 12:28:33 (1.76 MB/s) - ‘mysql80-community-release-el7-2.noarch.rpm’ saved [25892/25892] shell$ yum install mysql80-community-release-el7-2.noarch.rpm ...

Installing : mysql80-community-release-el7-2.noarch 1/1 Verifying : mysql80-community-release-el7-2.noarch 1/1 Installed: mysql80-community-release.noarch 0:el7-2 Complete! You can now remove the previous installation (if present) and its files. 2. Remove Previous Installations MySQL or one of its forks may have been installed beforehand. This may even happen as a dependency of another package. You should never have more than one MySQL or fork installed using the package system (yum or rpm on Oracle Linux, RHEL, and CentOS). Tip If you need to install different versions of MySQL side by side, use the tarball distributions. You want to uninstall the existing packages in such a way that you do not remove the programs that depend on it – otherwise you will have to re-install those later. One option is to use the rpm command with the --nodeps option. On Oracle Linux 7, RHEL 7, and CentOS 7 this may look like: shell$ rpm -e --nodeps mariadb-server-5.5.56-2.el7.x86_64 mariadb-5.5.56-2.el7.x86_64 mariadb-libs-5.5.56-2.el7.x86_64 You can find out which packages are installed using rpm -qa and pass the output through grep to search for the packages of interest. The next step is to clean out any existing files left behind. 3. Clean the Data Directory In order to be able to initialize MySQL in step 5., the data directory must be empty. You can choose to use a non-default location for the data directory, or you can re-use the default location which use /var/lib/mysql. If you want to preserve your old data directory, make sure you back it up first! Warning Important: If you want to keep your old data files, make sure you back them up before proceeding! All existing files will be permanently lost during this step. The data directory may have been removed in step 2., but if it has not, you can remove it using the following command: shell$ rm -rf /var/lib/mysql Optionally, you can also remove the error log, and if you store files outside the data directory (for example the binary log files or InnoDB log files), you should also remove those. The error log is located in /var/log/; for other files, you will need to check your configuration file (usually /etc/my.cnf). You are now ready to install the MySQL 8. 4. Install MySQL 8 You can choose between several packages and patch releases (maintenance releases). It is recommended to install the latest patch release. You can see from the release notes which release is the latest. By default, yum will also install the latest release. Which packages you want to install depends on your requirements. The MySQL reference manual includes a list of the available packages with a description of what they include. In this example, the following packages will be installed: mysql-community-client: Client applications such as the mysql command-line client. mysql-community-common: Some common files for MySQL programs. mysql-community-libs: Shared libraries using the latest version of the API. mysql-community-libs-compat: Shared libraries using the version of the API corresponding to what RPM packages from the Oracle Linux/RHEL/CentOS repositories that depend on MySQL uses.

Notice how the GPG key for the MySQL YUM repository is downloaded, and you are requested to verify it is the correct key. This happens, because it is the first time the repository is used. You can also manually add the GPG key using the instructions in Signature Checking Using GnuPG. You are now ready to the final step: configuring and starting MySQL Server for the first time. 5. Initialize with lower_case_table_names = 1 As mentioned in the introduction to this blog, you need to ensure that lower_case_table_names is configured when MySQL initializes its data directory. When you use systemd to start MySQL, it will happen automatically when you start MySQL with an empty data directory. This means, you should update the MySQL configuration file with the desired value of lower_case_table_names before the first start. The default location for the MySQL configuration file is /etc/my.cnf. Open this file with your favourite editor and ensure the line lower_case_table_names = 1 is listed in the [mysqld] group: [mysqld] lower_case_table_names = 1 Optionally, you can make other changes to the configuration as needed. Tip Other than a few capacity settings such as innodb_buffer_pool_size and the configuration of the InnoDB redo logs, the default configuration is a good starting point for most installations. Now, you can start MySQL: shell$ systemctl start mysqld This will take a little time as it includes initializing the data directory. Once MySQL has started, you can retrieve the temporary password for the root account from the MySQL error log: shell$ grep 'temporary password' /var/log/mysqld.log 2019-04-14T03:29:00.122862Z 5 [Note] [MY-010454] [Server] A temporary password is generated for root@localhost: aLxwMUQr%7C, The temporary password is randomly generated during the initialization to avoid MySQL being left with a known default password.

          DOJ, Largely Shut Down, Nonetheless Issued Statements On Southern Border Cases      Comment   Translate Page      
Updated at 1:25 p.m. ET The ongoing government shutdown didn't stop the Justice Department's public affairs office from issuing statements this week about cases involving America's Southern border. Officials in Washington, D.C., instructed field office workers on Dec. 21 that the public affairs unit would "only issue press releases to the extent it is necessary to ensure public safety or national security, such as a terrorist attack or something of similar magnitude." That's why the pair of announcements this week raised some eyebrows — the cases involved the sentencing of foreign-born defendants who participated in an international sex trafficking operation, forcing young women and girls from Mexico and Central America into prostitution. Even though the government is shut down, those announcements appeared ahead of a speech scheduled for Tuesday night in which President Trump is expected to make a case that there's an "emergency" on the border and a later trip to the border to see it

Look, all of the problems with the Lightning etc is being overblown. There is one main problem right now and that main problem is leading to any secondary problem. Vasy has been straight trash. I hate to say it but if Louis were in there, we don't lose Game 1 and Game 2 could have gone either way. Look at the stats from the games and it's clear that Vasy is simply being outplayed. Unfortunately, this is a common theme in the playoffs for Vasy. He seems to nut up. It's time he shows that he has some mental fortitude and he plays like he did the majority of the season that landed him in the Vezina nomination category. We are way too good to continue to be shutdown. Our breakout is due but it can't happen without Vasy at least being serviceable.

          Trump Administration To Allow 2,700 Central American Children Into The U.S.      Comment   Translate Page

Richard Gonzales | NPR

The Trump administration has agreed to settle a lawsuit with a dozen Central American families who challenged the government's cancellation of a program that was designed to reunite children in that region with their parents living in the U.S.

As a result, some 2,700 children living in Central America may be allowed to enter the U.S. at a time when the Trump administration is actively trying to dissuade other migrants from attempting to come to this country.

The program, called the Central American Minors program, was initiated during the Obama administration in 2014 in response to a surge of unaccompanied minors who sought to join their parents. Minors in Central America who had parents residing legally in the U.S. were eligible to apply for permanent residence as refugees, or for parole — a designation allowing someone to legally reside in the U.S. Over 1,335 minors arrived in the United States, according to a 2018 court order.

That order followed the Trump administration's termination of the program in August 2017. The government also rescinded parole for about 2,700 minors who already had been conditionally approved, but had not yet traveled to the U.S.

The International Refugee Assistance Project and the law firm Arnold & Porter Kaye Scholer LLP, filed suit on behalf of the families whose children essentially were in the pipeline when the administration canceled the program. The plaintiffs alleged that there was a "secret shutdown" of the program in the early days of the Trump administration, even as the government continued to solicit and accept funds from applicants to pay for medical examinations and travel to the U.S.

U.S. Magistrate Judge Laurel Beeler ruled in December 2018 that the administration's mass revocation of the conditional approvals for the minors was illegal. In a March 1 ruling, she ordered the government to resume processing the children. But she did not compel the Department of Homeland Security to "reach any particular outcome with respect to the processing of any individual beneficiary."

Under the terms of the settlement, the United States Citizenship and Immigration Service "agrees to process the approximately 2,700 individuals who were conditionally approved for parole prior to the CAM Parole program's termination and then issued rescission notices, as well as any later born children who are classified as add-ons."

According to a statement announcing the settlement, the International Refugee Assistance Project said, "The government anticipates most applicants will be approved for parole and allowed to travel to the U.S."

One plaintiff, identified in court documents only as "S.A.," had applied on behalf of her daughter and grandchild.

"My heart jumps and cries for joy because there are so many who need to escape danger. I have faith that I will be together with my daughter and grandson soon," she said in the IRAP statement.

"We are so pleased that after many years apart our clients will finally have the opportunity to reunite with each other in safety," said IRAP Litigation Staff Attorney Linda Evarts.

The Justice Department did not immediately respond to an email request for comment.

          "Fun City: John Lindsay, Joe Namath, and How Sports Saved New York in the 1960s" with Sean Deveney      Comment   Translate Page      

“Coming events cast their shadows before.”  -Thomas Campbell, Scottish poet

On January 1, 1966, New York came to a standstill as the city’s transit workers went on strike.  This was the first day on the job for Mayor John Lindsay.  He would approach the transit shutdown with the sort of dynamic problem solving that would be his hallmark.  He ignored the cold and walked four miles, famously declaring, “I still think it is a fun city.”

As Lindsay juggled his city’s repeated crises, the sporting scene saw tremendous upheaval.  On one hand, the venerable Yankees -- who had won 15 pennants in an 18-year span before 1965 -- and the NFL’s powerhouse Giants suddenly went into a level of decline neither had known for generations.  But on the other, the fall of the city’s sports behemoths was accompanied by the rise of anti-establishment outsiders -- there were Joe Namath and the Jets, as well as the shocking triumph of the Amazin’ Mets, who won the 1969 World Series after spending the franchise’s first seven seasons losing 737 ballgames.

The overlap of these two worlds in the 1960s -- Lindsay’s politics and the reemerging sports landscape -- serves as the backbone of “Fun City.”  It is a story of a thrilling time in New York sports, set against the backdrop of a remarkable and often difficult time for the city, culturally and socially.

Listen in to our fascinating discussion with Sean Deveney on a “Fun City” winter evening in the Clubhouse...

IAEA Mission Says Germany Is Committed to Strengthening Safety, Sees Areas for Further Enhancement

Bonn, Germany
An International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) team of experts said Germany is committed to strengthening its regulatory framework for nuclear and radiation safety. The team also noted areas for further enhancement.
The Integrated Regulatory Review Service (IRRS) team on 12 April concluded a two-week mission to review the regulatory safety framework in Germany. The mission was conducted at the request of the Government of Germany and hosted by the Federal Ministry for Environment, Nature Conservation and Nuclear Safety (BMU). The team of senior nuclear and radiation safety experts also met with representatives of the Federal Office for the Safety of Nuclear Waste Management, Federal Office for Radiation Protection and authorities from seven state governments.
Using IAEA safety standards and international good practices, IRRS missions are designed to strengthen the effectiveness of the national regulatory infrastructure, while recognizing the responsibility of each country to ensure nuclear and radiation safety.
Germany, which currently operates seven nuclear power reactors, aims to end commercial nuclear power operations by the end of 2022. The country has another 29 power reactors in permanent shutdown that will require dismantling and decommissioning and has begun a process to select a site for disposal of high level radioactive waste. Germany also operates seven research reactors for research and medical isotope production.
“Germany has demonstrated a strong commitment to nuclear and radiation safety during a period of significant transition,” said team leader Dan Dorman, Deputy Executive Director of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission of the United States. “This team has identified a number of opportunities to clarify guidance within the regulatory framework to promote efficiency and consistency while maintaining a high level of safety.”
The IRRS team said Germany has strong practices and processes in place that ensure comprehensive regulatory oversight.
“I am very pleased that the most recent IRRS mission confirms that our nuclear supervision meets international requirements. Even though Germany has decided to phase out nuclear energy, the safety of our nuclear facilities remains a top priority for us,” said Svenja Schulze, Minister for BMU. “Moreover, we want to be able to support our neighbouring countries as a competent partner even after the phase-out. This is very important since nuclear hazards cannot be contained by national borders.”
The review covered the following areas: responsibilities and functions of the government; the global nuclear safety regime; responsibilities and functions of the regulatory body; BMU’s management system and activities including authorization, review and assessment, inspection, enforcement and the development of regulations and guides; emergency preparedness and response; occupational radiation protection; fuel cycle and radioactive waste management facilities and decommissioning.
The 21-member team comprised 17 senior regulatory experts from 16 countries as well as four IAEA staff members.
“This mission raises awareness about Germany’s ongoing work to enhance regulatory effectiveness and its commitment to implement the IAEA safety standards, which serve as the basis for IRRS reviews,” said Juan Carlos Lentijo, IAEA Deputy Director General and Head of the Department of Nuclear Safety and Security.
The team identified a good practice in Germany’s emergency preparedness arrangements, which allow all levels of Government to access necessary information at any time.
The team provided recommendations and suggestions to the regulatory authorities, including:
  • They should assess leadership for safety and safety culture on a regular basis.
  • They should establish requirements for the periodic review and update of safety assessments during immediate dismantling.
  • They should include requirements for addressing public inputs during the process of termination of the decommissioning license.
In addition, the IRRS team identified several other areas where further regulatory guidance would be helpful as the country transitions out of nuclear power. They include managing necessary changes to sustain the relevance of the regulatory framework and to support its efficient and consistent application across regulatory authorities.
The final mission report will be provided to the Government in about three months. The Government plans to make the report public.

Hanno passato il confine tra Guatemala e Messico. Mille migranti in cammino verso gli Stati Uniti
L'Osservatore Romano
Nelle prime ore di oggi almeno 1100 persone, provenienti dall’America Centrale, hanno superato il confine tra Guatemala e Messico nell’area di Ciudad Hidalgo. Sono diretti verso il confine con gli Stati Uniti. La carovana, che comprende anche persone provenienti da Cuba e da paesi africani, è formata soprattutto da cittadini honduregni, partiti mercoledì dalla località di San Pedro Sula. Si tratta della settima grande carovana di migranti da ottobre scorso.
L'Istituto nazionale delle migrazioni ha recentemente chiuso i centri statali dei migranti a Morelia, Acapulco, Nogales e Reynosa «per mancanza delle condizioni minime di accoglienza e di fornitura di servizi». Qualche comune nelle città di confine, come Tijuana, ha una Commissione municipale per i migranti che controlla una rete di strutture ma la maggior parte sono sature per il ritorno in massa dei centroamericani che avevano cercato asilo negli Stati Uniti e sono tornati in Messico in attesa della risposta di un giudice statunitense alla loro richiesta.
La questione migrazione è in queste ore più che mai al centro di polemiche negli Stati Uniti. Secondo il «New York Times», il presidente Donald Trump avrebbe chiesto privatamente la settimana scorsa a Kevin McAleenan, nominato in quei giorni pro tempore a capo della Homeland Security — dopo il licenziamento di Kirstjen Nielsen — di chiudere il confine con il Messico, promettendogli che in caso di violazione della legge e di problemi con la giustizia gli avrebbe concesso la grazia. L’episodio smentirebbe quanto detto ufficialmente da Trump, vale a dire che gli Stati Uniti darebbero al Messico un anno di tempo per evitare che il confine venga sigillato. Alla ricostruzione dei fatti riportata oggi dal quotidiano ha risposto il Dipartimento degli interni sottolineando in una nota che il presidente Donald Trump «non ha mai indicato, chiesto, ordinato o indotto Kevin McAleenan a fare alcunchè di illegale». McAleenan era già capo dell’organismo per la protezione delle frontiere U.S. Customs and border protection. L’agenzia Homeland Security è una sorta di superministero creato da George Bush dopo l'11 settembre, con competenze che vanno dalla polizia di frontiera all'anti-terrorismo. Il suo operato negli ultimi tempi non ha soddisfatto Trump, ilquale aveva criticato apertamente Kirstjen Nielsen, accusata di non aver saputo reagire all'aumento dei flussi di profughi e migranti alla frontiera meridionale. Lunedì scorso Trump ha scritto su Twitter: «Il Messico deve arrestare tutti i clandestini e non consentire loro di fare la lunga marcia fino agli Stati Uniti, o non avremo altra scelta che chiudere le frontiere. Il nostro paese è pieno». A Washington è ancora tutto aperto il confronto tra il presidente e il Congresso sulla costruzione del muro con il Messico. Trump ha chiesto 18 miliardi che il congresso si è rifiutato di mettere a bilancio: ne è scaturito a gennaio il record di settimane di cosiddetto shutdown. Poi Trump ha ottenuto che il Pentagono assicurasse un miliardo di dollari. Per aggirare le resistenze del Congresso e procurarsi i fondi per la costruzione Trump ha dichiarato lo stato di emergenza ma sono scattati diversi ricorsi. Si sono mosse le autorità giudiziarie di diversi stati — California in testa — sostenendo che lo stato di emergenza non esiste perché i numeri reali di coloro che cercano di attraversare la frontiera non sono particolarmente alti.

          MA House Ways and Means Budget released April 10      Comment   Translate Page      
"To the Members of the Massachusetts House of Representatives: 
With this document, the House Committee on Ways and Means presents its recommendations for the Fiscal Year 2020 General Appropriations Act. The Committee’s proposal makes fiscally responsible decisions and targeted investments that allow the Massachusetts economy to continue to grow and diversify. This is a budget that funds the commitments of our present and invests in the promise of our future. 
For much of FY 2019, the Commonwealth’s tax collections have varied considerably. In November of 2018 the State’s returns were $400 million above the benchmarks agreed to during the Consensus Revenue process. By the end of February of 2019 the State’s returns were nearly $300 million below benchmarks. This swing is likely due to volatility in the stock market, the 24 day shutdown of the Federal government, and recent changes to the Federal tax code. While our economy remains strong and our overall fiscal situation is strong, going into Fiscal Year 2020 we must remain cautious with the understanding that the revenue picture remains unclear. 
This budget delivers on our shared commitment to the cities and towns we represent. It provides a $29.6 million increase to Unrestricted General Government Aid (UGGA) and over $235 million in increased funding for Chapter 70 education aid. This is also a budget that recognizes that local aid goes beyond those two accounts, and continues to make investments in funding for Regional School Transportation and the state’s share of the Special Education Circuit Breaker. 
This budget would also reform the way that local school districts receive transitional aid as a result of students who switch to a charter school. These reforms will result in quicker, more reliable funding from the State with no loss in actual funds."

Continue reading the Chairman's Letter

For those closely following the MA budget cycle, this is the second major step in the process. The Governor issues his budget in January (H1). This is the Ways and Means budget. The Senate will release their budget approx. in May. After the House and Senate have each finalized their versions, both get together in Conference to work out the 'final' budget that goes to the Governor for his approval theoretically before July 1, 2019.

This House Ways and Means budget is usually more than the Governors' budget and what Franklin looks for to use for their own calculations on our local budget. This tends to be closer to the 'final' amount we can count on (but stay tuned for changes up or down in some of the amounts as the work in the Legislature continues).

the MA budget cycle

In the Executive Summary section

"The House Committee on Ways and Means budget proposal invests significantly in aid to cities and towns across the Commonwealth. For FY 2020, the Committee proposes increasing the Unrestricted General Government Aid by $29.7M to $1.129B. The Committee also proposes funding Chapter 70 aid to school districts at $5.125B, a $218 M increase over the FY19 GAA. Acknowledging the significant costs that districts face, the Committee invests $73.8M for regional school transportation, and also increases district aid for charter school payments to $113M, a $23M increase over FY19 GAA, while modernizing the funding formula to better align dollars with need.
  • Provides $1.129B for UGGA
  • Provides $5.125B for Chapter 70 aid
  • Provides $329M for Circuit Breaker Special Education reimbursement
  • Provides $73.9M for Regional School Transportation reimbursement
  • Provides $113M for Charter School reimbursement"

While the convenience this brings is undeniable, and plenty of gamers have embraced having a stuffed memory card in their Vita, there are major pitfalls that are slowly beginning to show, one of which is that games can be delisted without any prior warning, leaving them lost to time unless you bought them before they disappeared.

It’s these that I’m aiming to examine in this article - games which have been removed from the PlayStation Store, both those that are digital-only (meaning they’re gone forever) and those that have physical releases that you’ll need to hunt down. Why have they been delisted and what does this mean for the Vita’s digital future?


Digital Delisted Games With Physical Releases

Of course, the best case scenario for the games that will be featured in an article like this are those that have had both physical and digital releases, because this means that although they’ve been removed from digital storefronts you can still hunt down a physical copy, so you're not completely out of options.

Sadly, some of these have become hugely pricey as time has gone on, the main offenders being anime licensed titles from Bandai-Namco like A.W. Phoenix Festa and Digimon Story: Cyber SleuthBoth of these received physical English releases in Asia, meaning you can still get them, but prices are insanely high for both – Digimon regularly fetches upwards of $90/£90 on eBay, while Asterisk War is commanding more like $250/£250. Others, like Dragon Ball Z: Battle of ZJ-Stars Victory Vs+One Piece Pirate Warriors 3, and One Piece Unlimited World Red also received physical releases in Europe, making them slightly easier to hunt down, but even for these titles prices are only going to increase as time goes on.

Given the aforementioned titles' sudden disappearance from digital storefronts, I would also be on alert for other anime games suddenly disappearing from the store without notice. Things like Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth – Hacker’s Memory and Mobile Suit Gundam: Extreme Vs Force could well be next. Again, Asian-English physical versions are available for both, but with cart production ceasing this year these are only going to get rarer and rarer.

Licensing is a common issue among delisted titles. The Marvel licence in particular seems to be problematic. This means games like The Amazing Spider-Man and Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3 are long gone (sadly so too is the DLC for the latter, a problem which has also affected LittleBigPlanet as it offered Marvel-themed DLC), and so too is Disney Infinity 2.0: Marvel’s Super Heroes. Speaking of Disney, its Star Wars IP formed part of Angry Birds Star Warswhich is now delisted, but so too is the Angry Birds Trilogy. This is a bit baffling since they were both originally mobile titles. Disney also licensed Epic Mickey 2: The Power of Two to Sony and this can only be played via a now-expensive physical release.

A similar thing happened with both LEGO Lord of the Rings and LEGO The Hobbitwith both disappearing mostly overnight from all digital storefronts, not just Vita. Thankfully, pre-owned physical copies can be found at fairly cheap prices; something also true of Virtua Tennis 4: World Tour (although prices are starting to creep up). Speaking of sports titles, all three of the four FIFA games have been delisted, with only FIFA ’15 remaining (surely a ploy to get you to buy the most recent version, although it barely matters since they all play the same). Football Manager Classic 2014 is also gone too, despite some of the PSP Champion Manager games still being up!

The SpongeBob licence also seems to have expired for publisher Activision, meaning SpongeBob Heropants is gone and physical copies are beginning to shoot up in price, despite the game being a bit of a dud. Three more games which can’t be picked up for a reasonable amount anymore are Ben 10: Galactic Racing, Shinobido 2: Revenge of Zen, and New Little King’s Story, the latter of which only got a physical English release in Europe and Asia, meaning it's pretty rare and getting rarer by the day. WRC3 on the other hand is delisted but easy enough to find. Whether you should or not is another matter, given it’s effectively obsolete with the much better WRC4 having released.

Oddly, despite being produced by mobile gaming giant Gameloft, Asphalt Injection and Dungeon Hunter Alliance have been delisted on Vita. The former sort of makes sense because it includes licensed vehicles, but the latter is baffling considering the PS3 version is still available. Perhaps it has something to do with Ubisoft publishing the Vita ports, which caused some kind of contractual issue (Ubisoft’s licensed rhythm game Michael Jackson: The Experience is also gone).


Digital Delisted Games Without Physical Releases

The other key class of games here is, of course, those that only received digital releases and had no physical counterparts, meaning they’re lost forever if you didn’t grab them while they were up on the store.

The one semi-exception to this rule is Adventure Time: Secret of the Nameless Kingdomwhich oddly received a physical release in Japan but not the west. Sadly, this physical version does not include any English text, making it a fairly useless import unless you want to muddle through. Thankfully, the developers warned of the delisting in advance and even sold the game for $0.99 for its final few weeks, meaning it was easy to grab as long as you had a PlayStation Network account.

Other titles weren’t so lucky. For example, games like Sony’s music festival simulation BigFest disappeared once its online servers went down, even though the game is still fully playable without them. Duke Nukem 3D: Megaton Edition is a title that went without much warning too, likely due to an upcoming PS4/XB1 port, which meant that publisher Gearbox didn’t want gamers playing the older version (oddly it contained slightly more content than the newer release).

One of the first games to be delisted that really made headlines was Plants vs. Zombies, one of the console’s western launch titles that was a shining example of digital distribution done right... until it mysteriously vanished from the store without warning (likely to do with the licence given to Sony Online Entertainment expiring). Another game that received a surprising amount of attention for its delisting was The Pinball Arcadewhich lost a large number of its tables (offered through DLC) late last year, effectively gutting it in terms of content.

Less fanfare was made about the disappearance of things like Jazz: Trump’s Journey (I didn’t realise it myself until randomly browsing the other day. The loss of this one is a shame as it was highly recommended by a user on a forum I browse) and Superfrog HDboth of which had no real reason for being removed given they’re self-published indie titles. They go to show the volatility of the digital-only future.

The biggest offender in this regard is the whole of PlayStation Mobile, though – a now-defunct service which allowed developers to create small games for a nominal fee and put them up on the cluttered PSM Store. The whole initiative was shut down in 2015 and, worse still, you can’t actually re-download any of these titles anymore, meaning games like Forevolution, Rymdkapsel, Sword of Rapierand Tokyo Jungle Mobile are potentially lost forever (I have the games on my OLED Vita, which is probably going to die at some point, and then they’ll be gone for good for me).


Free-to-Play Games

The final group of games I want to touch on here are free-to-play titles, which rely on micro-transactions to stay viable, meaning that once the servers go down the games go down with them – a terrible result for those of us who want to preserve titles we love into the future.

The main one that stands out for me is Invokers TournamentVita’s first and only MOBA. Although it’s not gone yet (server shutdown is the 15th of May), there’s only a month and a half left to play it. It’s not the best game, but I still enjoyed my time with it and would recommend people try it out for something different on the handheld. In fact, Sony-published F2P titles have a habit of disappearing. Destiny of Spirits went down less than a year after being released, Ecolibrium is being shutdown in May alongside Invokers Tournament, and Fat Princess: Piece of Cake was swiftly removed from the store too. I feel like it’s only a matter of time until Run Sackboy! Run! is gone, so if you’ve ever been tempted to try it out the time is now.

A few third-party developers also tried their hands at the F2P market. One of the strangest was Square-Enix’s effort with Deadman’s Cross, a shooter mixed with a card game that seemingly didn’t do very well as it was shut down within a yearTreasures of Montezuma Blitz seemed to last a lot longer, but sadly even that’s gone now too (I don’t even remember hearing about it being removed).

One of my biggest regrets with Vita gaming was not getting a Japanese account sooner, as there were a tonne of fun-looking F2P titles on the Japanese store that are now long gone. Did you know, for example, that there was a crossover card game from Compile Heart named NepNep Connect: Chaos Chanpuru which mixed in characters from a variety of its Vita titles, including Monster MonpieceNeptunia and Trillion? Well, it’s delisted now, alongside things like Picotto Knights, a side-scrolling brawler from GungHo, Tri-Ace’s cover-shooter card game Judas Codeand both Chain Chronicle V and Samurai & Dragons from SEGA.

Square-Enix also released a new entry in its Mana series, entitled Rise of Mana, which was supposedly pretty well received, but the service was shut down in 2016 (apparently Square-Enix is looking to re-tool the game as something else, but that seems unlikely at this point and it definitely won’t be for Vita). Two Gundam games – Gundam Conquest V and Mobile Suit Gundam: Battle Fortress - were also released in the region but went before I had chance to try them out. The fact these titles all disappeared so quickly means I’m probably going to have to hurry up if I want to play things like the Yakuza F2P spin-offs on the Japanese store, before they’re gone for good too.



As you might have gathered from the tone of this article, I’m a massive advocate of physical media, because it gives me the opportunity to preserve my games. I’m still planning on playing my Vita for years to come and having a copy I can put in a drawer to come back to later means I don’t have to rush to grab things before they’re gone. Sure, physical carts won’t last forever either (although they don’t suffer from disc rot, there are other problems with flash memory), but they at least offer a better solution.

The financial advantages of digital distribution mean we’re seeing more and more games opt for this route. Many indie titles wouldn’t be possible if physical production was the only way to release, for example. But it also means we’re at risk of seeing many more games lost to time. My only advice on this matter is to make sure that you don’t wait too long to buy something if you’re interested, especially if there’s some kind of licence involved (the recent news about Driveclub is a fantastic example of that).

Thankfully, there are companies out there like Limited Run Games that are working hard to preserve games (even if they’re not always entirely succeeding, with things like Night Trap being full of bugs and Ys Origin launching without the patch on the cart), so there are more physical options than ever before. Vita’s digital future has offered many advantages, but I'm certainly glad that carts exist and I’ll be playing mine for years to come.

          Activists say Alphabet’s planned neighborhood in Toronto shows all the warning signs of Amazon HQ2-style breakup      Comment   Translate Page      

Sidewalk Toronto

  • Sidewalk Labs, the urban innovation arm of Google's parent company, Alphabet, plans to build a high-tech neighborhood along Toronto's Eastern Waterfront.
  • Local residents concerned about the company's plan to collect data in public spaces have waged an opposition campaign called Block Sidewalk, which is calling for an end to the project.  
  • The backlash is reminiscent of protests over Google's planned campus in Berlin and Amazon's proposed headquarters in New York City — both of which were abandoned before construction had even begun.  
  • The fate of these projects could provide a window into Alphabet's future in Toronto. 
  • Visit for more stories.

Technology companies were once heralded as the world's greatest problem-solvers — the answer to our desire to move faster, design quicker, and communicate more often. Today, they're blamed for all manner of ills, from skyrocketing rents to privacy violations to income inequality. 

Before this deep distrust began to bubble up in our culture, it would have been hard to imagine any city saying no to a development led by tech giants such as Amazon or Google. But that's exactly what's happening in cities like Berlin, New York City, and Toronto, where citizens have begun to challenge the role of tech companies as city-builders. 

In October 2018, Google cancelled plans to build a 32,000-square-foot campus in Kreuzberg, Berlin, amid activists' fears that the campus would drive up rents and push low-income residents out of their neighborhoods.

Three months later, Amazon made the stunning decision to walk away from its planned second headquarters in New York City, known as HQ2, following a similar resistance from local politicians, who banded together to oppose the new development. 

As the two projects fought to stay alive, Sidewalk Labs — the urban innovation arm of Google's parent company, Alphabet — was developing plans for a $1 billion high-tech neighborhood in Toronto.

That project is now facing a similar opposition from angry residents who have called for its demise. As the backlash gains momentum, it could force Sidewalk Labs to abandon or alter its vision.

Sidewalk Labs has a hazy vision for a new kind of neighborhood

Unlike the previous Amazon and Google developments, Sidewalk Labs isn't attempting to build a hub for its employees. The Alphabet subsidiary wants to construct an entirely new neighborhood in Toronto — basically a living lab for urban design —  from scratch. The real-life "SimCity," known as Quayside, will sit atop 12 acres of land along Toronto's Eastern Waterfront. 

The company says its goal is to "set new standards" for how cities are designed and built, but the bulk of its ideas, including heated roadways for driverless vehicles and underground sensors that measure things like air quality and noise, aren't exactly new. 

In December, the company released a draft of its site plan that shows a mixed-use development with both commercial space and "flexible" floors that include retail and community areas. The majority of the neighborhood will be dedicated to housing — around 2,500 units for an estimated 5,000 residents. About 20% of this housing is labeled "affordable," though the company doesn't refer to specific income brackets.

The plan highlights concepts such as "people-friendly" roads, "animated" ground floor spaces, and "exceptional" bicycle infrastructure. Buildings will be made of mass timber and rely on sustainable heat sources like solar panels and geothermal wells. The most futuristic design elements are robots that deliver mail and transport garbage through underground tunnels.

The company has yet to release its full master plan, which is supposed to be approved by its board of directors and development partner, Waterfront Toronto, by September 30.

Some Canadians have begun to question whether the opacity is intentional. "By the time we get to the plans, essentially the decision has been made," said surveillance expert David Murakami Wood, who teaches at Queen's University in Ontario. 

Murakami Wood described the neighborhood as an "empire of choice," where citizens' needs and desires are satisfied by, but also dependent on, Google technology. 

Some people are concerned that Quayside will violate their privacy

Around the same time that Amazon pulled out of New York City, Sidewalk Labs was enduring its own string of controversy. In February, the Toronto Star published leaked documents that showed the company's desire to fund a new light rail transit line in Toronto. In exchange, it would receive discounted property taxes and collect fees from developers that would normally go back to the city.

In a statement to The Canadian Press, Toronto city councilman Gord Perks said the leak was "confirmation of our worst fears." He then called upon Canada's national, provincial, and local governments to "halt the process with Google." 

Prior to the leak, Sidewalk Labs and Waterfront Toronto had already generated criticism for a lack of dialogue with community residents. Attendees of public meetings hosted by the two entities said each meeting started with a presentation that informed community members of existing plans rather than asking the public to help build ideas from scratch.

From the very first community meeting, "the public really didn’t have a say" said Melissa Goldstein, a Torontonian who's been vocally opposed to the project. Goldstein said Sidewalk Labs responded to her critiques by "gaslighting," or making her feel that her concerns weren't valid.

"Every time a criticism is made of what they're doing, they basically absorb that criticism, re-package it, and sell it back to us as if they'd always thought this all along," Murakami Wood told Business Insider. "It's very basic and very obvious, and yet people fall for it every time." 

Sidewalk Labs previously told Business Insider that their ideas have "evolved, developed, and benefited" from the public's response.

Toronto Sidewalk Labs

The struggle to achieve transparency over rudimentary plans has many locals, including tech workers and business execs, questioning the company's approach to privacy. 

By capturing the activity of residents through underground sensors, Sidewalk Labs would learn about certain daily movements and behaviors, like when a person is stopped at a traffic light or seated on a park bench. The company has pledged to make all of its public data anonymous, but it hasn't agreed to keep its data local.

Sidewalk Labs believes that its Quayside data can be governed under Canadian law without exclusively residing in the country. This would allow companies — and particularly startups — outside Canada to use the data for their own competitive agendas.

To see how a practice like this could play out, it's helpful to look at Facebook, which has been known to share users' contact information, calendars, friend lists, or private messages with companies like Apple, Spotify, and Netflix.

For the most part, this information has helped companies customize their user experiences and target new customers. But, in 2018, Facebook sold data on tens of millions of Americans to an English political consulting firm called Cambridge Analytica, which allegedly used this information to support Donald Trump's election in 2016. A year after the scandal broke, Facebook announced it would no longer provide third-party data services for targeted advertising.

Sidewalk Labs insists that the way to protect residents' personal information is to develop strong contracts and methods of encryption. 

The company has issued a lengthy proposal for an independent data trust that would hold it to the same standards as any other organization or government body. But the company also said there are no existing laws that determine ownership of this information, and few regulations that successfully protect it.

The trust, Murakami Wood said, is "a clearinghouse for other corporations to use that same data," which he said would be difficult to police outside Canada.

Residents are campaigning to 'Block Sidewalk'

Days before the data trust was announced, a technology expert on Waterfront Toronto's Digital Strategy Advisory Panel, Saadia Muzaffar, resigned over a lack of transparency. The panel, which formed in April 2018, focuses on guiding the fair and safe use of data technology in Quayside. Muzaffar was soon joined by one of the project's privacy experts, who was concerned that Sidewalk Labs wouldn't properly govern people's information. 

Their criticism has been echoed by Bianca Wylie, the co-founder of Tech Reset Canada, an organization that advocates for using technology to maximize the public good.

Back in October, Wylie questioned the need for Sidewalk Labs to collect personal information, worrying that it could be used to further its financial interests. At the time, she was still talking with Sidewalk Labs online and at public meetings. But when the leaked documents were published in the Toronto Star, she decided that the project had gone too far.

That was the "tipping point," she told Business Insider. 

Sidewalk Toronto

Wylie helped organize a campaign called Block Sidewalk along with 30 other locals, including Goldstein and Murakami Wood. The movement has since swelled to encompass hundreds of people with reservations about the project. 

"What we know about Sidewalk Labs is that they're accountable to their shareholders," Wylie told Business Insider. "If they'd read the room, they would [walk away]." 

As with Amazon HQ2, it's unclear how many residents actually oppose the development. A February poll conducted by the Toronto Region Board of Trade (TRBOT) showed that a slim majority of Torontonians were in favor of Quayside, but the poll was conducted prior to the leaked documents in the Toronto Star. As a trade organization, the TRBOT also stands to benefit from new development.

Goldstein said there's a lot less criticism of Google in Toronto than in other cities. One reason for this, she said, is that many residents associate Google with technologies that have improved their lives, such as Gmail and Google Maps. Though Toronto has its fair share of tech companies, it also hasn't witnessed the explosive tech takeover that widened inequality in US cities like Seattle, Washington, and San Francisco, California. 

Goldstein also believes many Toronto residents don't understand the project's details. 

"The vast majority have absolutely no idea what's going on," she told Business Insider. "It's hard to be opposed to something when you don't know anything about it."

There are similarities between Quayside and Amazon HQ2

In response to these criticisms, Sidewalk Labs pointed Business Insider to a recent editorial written by CEO and co-founder Dan Doctoroff.

"We weren't trying to do anything in secret — and none of what we are considering could ever happen without robust public discussion and approval processes — although we recognize that it might have seemed that way," Doctoroff wrote. "We aren't yet sure ourselves what commitments we are prepared to make." 

Dan Doctoroff

Doctoroff sees Sidewalk Labs as a "catalyst" for development along the Eastern Waterfront. But Block Sidewalk says the company is behaving like a government. 

Back when Amazon HQ2 was still headed to Queens, it was difficult to tell which priorities belonged to the tech giant and which belonged to New York City. The deal seemed to fulfill certain government wish-list items, like a slew of high-paying tech jobs and investments, but it also afforded Amazon nearly $3 billion in tax incentives.

The ongoing debate in Toronto raises similar questions about who's in charge. Sidewalk Labs has characterized its activity as executing the vision of Waterfront Toronto, a government agency, but Murakami Wood said Waterfront Toronto "seems intent on giving away control." As the public meetings went on, he said, Sidewalk Labs "showed nothing other than supreme arrogance" in pushing forward their own ideas without properly addressing residents' concerns.

According to Miguel Gamiño, New York City's former chief technology officer, development projects work best when local citizens are placed at the center of the conversation. Both Amazon HQ2 and Quayside, he said, would have benefited from more dialogue and better engagement between residents, government, and the private sector.

The project's future is uncertain

Wylie said the HQ2 debacle taught her how much it matters to speak up about local development practices. In the future, it might also provide a blueprint for how Torontonians could pressure Sidewalk Labs. 

When New York activists and politicians began opposing Amazon HQ2 last year, the company was forced to rethink its deal. In a statement announcing their change of heart, Amazon said that friction with local and state politicians prevented it from "go[ing] forward with the project we and many others envisioned in Long Island City." 

The same could happen to Quayside if Toronto's rallying cry becomes any louder. 

"If Sidewalk Labs looks like it's creating bad publicity for Alphabet as a whole, Alphabet will drop Sidewalk Labs," Murakami Wood told Business Insider.

Sidewalk Labs did not say whether this was a possibility, but a spokesperson recently told the Canadian Press that it "will be up to residents, Waterfront Toronto, and all three levels of government to decide" if the plan moves forward.

          "The Way The Studio Was Shut Down Was Horrifying To Me" Says Telltale Co-Founder      Comment   Translate Page      

Earlier this week, we published an investigative piece that delved deep into the circumstances leading to last year's closure of Telltale Games. One of the major voices in that story was Kevin Bruner, co-founder and former CEO of Telltale. 

In our interview, Bruner candidly spoke about his thoughts on the shut down, saying he was disappointed and appalled with how it was handled. Bruner left the company in 2017 after being pushed out by board members (he also has a lawsuit against the company for financial damages), so he was not present during the majority studio closure.

"If I were an employee there, I would feel wronged, definitely," he says. "We’ll see what becomes of that. It’s tough now because there’s not much of a Telltale left to right the wrongs."

On a Friday afternoon in September 2018, Telltale CEO Pete Hawley called for a company meeting that ended up laying off 90 percent of Telltale's staff with no severance, no advance warning, and only nine more days of health insurance.

"I will say that the way the studio was shut down was horrifying to me," Bruner says. "People just showing up on a Friday and being told to go home because the company doesn’t exist anymore is not something I would have ever endorsed, and is absolutely not something I would have done."

Bruner laments that Telltale no longer exists, because he believes it was a unique place and opportunity for those to pursue the development of story-heavy, branching narrative games.

"I don’t understand exactly what happened in the final moments there to know why they executed the shutdown the way they did," he says. "It kills me, though. It really kills me. Telltale was such a big part of who I am."

We're publishing our entire interview with Bruner later today, so stay tuned.

          I’m an immigration judge. Here’s how we can fix our courts.      Comment   Translate Page      

Hon. Dana Leigh Marks, Apr. 12, 2019

"... Many of the flaws in our operations stem from the fact that we are administrative courts located within a law enforcement agency, so crucial decisions are made by officials with little or no experience as judges. It is time to change that.

The volume of work can be overwhelming. Some of our judges carry caseloads of 5,000 cases or more, usually with limited support staff. Because we work for the Justice Department, we are directed how to arrange our dockets and micromanaged about how much time we spend on cases. Beginning in October of last year, judges were ordered to complete 700 cases each year or risk a less-than-satisfactory performance evaluation, which can cost a judge his or her job. This is not how a court should be run. Attorney General William P. Barr told Congress this week that he is hoping to boost the number of judges in our courtrooms from around 425 to 535 over the next few years and for a commensurate boost in lawyers and clerks. We desperately need the help.

But more than that, we need to be free to be independent judges, not be monitored and rated like assembly-line workers. We must be allowed to use our expertise to decide our cases without interference. The current structure detracts from due process and makes people doubt the fairness of the courts we preside over. We need skilled, experienced, neutral managers who understand how to run a court and make transparency, independence and public access paramount — not administrators who want to keep the trains running on time above all else.

A number of lawyers’ organizations and scholars agree, and endorse the creation of an Article I Immigration Court. It would free our courts from the political influences of both the Justice and Homeland Security departments and the political whims of each new administration. It would allow a reliable funding stream from Congress to assure we have the resources needed to address our burgeoning caseload in a timely manner. It would mean that neutral judges would use their skills to make the rules and assure a level playing field for all. An independent immigration court will be an efficient and effective court that provides an example to the world of the superiority of the American justice system. We can and must fix this fatal flaw now."
