Iraqis leading efforts to enrich Arabic Wikipedia (Gilgamesh Nabeel, April 13, 2019, Al Monitor)

Leading enlightenment efforts is not something new to Iraqis, who are the inhabitants of Mesopotamia -- once the cradle of civilization. In ninth-century Baghdad, Abbasid ruler Harun al-Rashid established Bayt al-Hikmah -- the Arabic name for the House of Wisdom -- to house the monumental activity of the translation of Greek and Persian works into Arabic. This institution flourished in the reign of his son al-Ma'mun, making Baghdad the world's biggest hub of science.

"We chose this name for its historical significance," said Rayyis. He added, "That institution was a beacon of science, tolerance and exchange of cultures. The passion for science brought people of different religions and cultures -- all Jews, Muslims, Christians and others -- into one institution altogether."

Rayyis dreams of recreating that atmosphere. "We want to rekindle our people's golden age and join the global civilization," he said.

For Omar Mohammed, a Paris-based Iraqi scholar and creator and administrator of Mosul Eye, translation is such a valuable magical means. "We need it to build a new future -- a future devoid of dictatorship and ignorance," he said.

This project reminded Mohammed of Farah Antoun, a pioneer Tripoli-born enlightenment figure, writer and translator in the 19th century when he translated works into Arabic. "Hearing of Mutar's translation project made me very happy, for the freedom to access knowledge is a way to achieve eternal freedom," said Mohammed.

Upon meeting Mutar in New York this month, Mohammed suggested some books be translated into Arabic.

"Mutar promised to dedicate the project to Mosul University," he said, adding, "We are trying to make the website accessible in Mosul with more contributions from Mosul University scholars."

Currently, the House of Wisdom 2.0 project has a Facebook community of some 84,000 fans.

"We have added more than 900 articles to the Arabic Wikipedia and translated 12 books," said Mutar. He noted, "We lifted the ranking of the Arabic language to the 17th language in Wikipedia from the 19th."

While Arabic is the fourth most spoken language among internet users, only 6% of online content is available in Arabic.

"With our project, the Arabic Wikipedia is ranked 17th, preceded by the Ukrainian Wikipedia," said Rayyis. He added, "There are more than 400 million Arabic speakers, while Ukrainian is spoken by about 35 million people worldwide. We are proud of translating the full English Wikipedia content on biological evolution into Arabic -- more than 500 essays."

What is special about the House of Wisdom 2.0, according to Rayyis, is that it is a nonprofit project. "We translate hundreds of articles every month, voluntarily upload them to the Arabic Wikipedia and make them available to everyone for free," he said.

While concentrating on topics debunking conspiracy theories, topics banned in some Arab countries and content that makes people question more, Mutar emphasizes that they have no agenda other than spreading knowledge.

"We are not a political or anti-religion organization, but we embrace some of these controversial books and content because we believe Arab youth should be allowed to make up their own minds about how they want to live their lives," he said.

The reactions they get are quite encouraging.

"Within a few months, 80,000 fans followed us on Facebook," said Rayyis. "The majority of them are from Iraq, especially Baghdad, Najaf, Mosul and Basra. We have received hundreds of supportive messages so far," Rayyis added.

"It is a forum for those who adore knowledge and want to be part of an enlightened society," wrote Ismail Berwari, a lawyer from Dahuk in Iraqi Kurdistan, advising people to follow the project's page on Facebook.

          Ingeniously Daring Chemistry: 24 experiments for young scientists by Sean Connolly      Comment   Translate Page      
I had originally requested this book in the hope that it would have great ideas for easy, quick experiments I could do at the library. That didn't turn out to be the case BUT I did discover that it was a fun, interesting book that sparked ideas for me in other ways.

The book has a unique and interesting arrangement; it's set up around the periodic table. So readers learn about the properties of, say, nitrogen, its history and uses, and then there's a section of experiments based around the element. 20 elements are discussed, from sodium to oxygen, and a final chapter tackles the more dangerous elements - radium, arsenic, etc.

The experiments are all fairly simple - using vinegar and fluoride rinse to test the enamel on an egg, growing crystals, or making a potato clock. They're things that a typical middle-class household could do in their kitchen. However, most of them aren't things that would work well in a library setting; they are messy, take multiple hours or days to complete, or don't translate well to multiple kids. So, using it in a STEM program at the library is out.

However, it's a great book for at-home experiments; full of humor, history, cartoons, and science. It also sparked a lot of great ideas for me to have science demonstrations at the library! I'm going to combine this with another book I've looked at, Mason Jar Science, collect jars, and periodically set up experiments on a display! The kids can come in and see how they are progressing and we'll post updates on Facebook. That's the plan anyways.

Verdict: A great addition to your science experiment books and full of fun ideas to inspire experimentation.

          Garrett Wilson Shows in Spring Game Why Ohio State Won't Be Able to Keep Him Off the Field      Comment   Translate Page      

Tyreke Smith rattled off the same names anyone would expect.

When asked who caught his eye and really impressed him this year’s spring practice, which wrapped up with the spring game on Saturday, the sophomore defensive end first took the politically correct position, saying everyone had played well. Smith followed up by mentioning Nicholas Petit-Frere and Noah Potter. He looked down, wracking his brain, trying to think of anyone else.

Then his eyes got wide.

“Garrett Wilson on the offensive side, he’s definitely showing (improvement). He catches some stuff in practice, I’m like, ‘Man, how do you catch that?’” said Smith, breaking into a smile and chuckling.

Wilson, a freshman early enrollee, had 14 practices to show the coaches and his teammates that he deserved a significant role in the offense in the fall, and he saved one of his best catches for last.

“He's a guy that can go up and control his body like one of the best I've ever seen. He's made a couple one-hand ridiculous plays. But his ability to go up over a DB, that's something that he does much better than me.”– C.J. Saunders

Early in the second quarter, Matthew Baldwin targeted Wilson, his former teammate at Lake Travis High School in Texas, floating an 18-yard toss to the right corner of the end zone. Sevyn Banks, in one-on-one coverage, seemingly had position to make a play and slowed down. Wilson, looking anything but a freshman who technically should still be in high school, never slowed down.

Leaping off his left leg, Wilson perfectly timed a jump and propelled himself over Banks, extending both arms to high-point the ball and reel it in over the cornerback who fell to the ground before standing up and throwing a punch into the air out of anger.

“Y'all saw the play today where he got up on the fade route. He's been doing that all spring,” Justin Fields said. “That's just him. Nobody on the team was surprised by that. We knew that was going to happen.”

Wilson’s catch shouldn’t have shocked anyone. The second-rated wide receiver in the class of 2019 entered the program exceptionally polished for someone his age. His performance on Saturday confirmed everything expected of a five-star wideout.

In December, when Ohio State inked Wilson’s signature and made the Texas-to-Ohio move official, Ryan Day said he was “as talented a young man” in terms of ball skills, speed and change of direction as anyone he had been around. If Wilson wanted to, Day claimed, he could play Division I basketball.

It’s hard to dispute that after seeing Saturday’s four-catch, 44-yard performance, punctuated by the 18-yard touchdown snag.

“The best catch? That one today was pretty sweet,” C.J. Saunders said. “I can't wait to watch that on film or on TV. He's a guy that can go up and control his body like one of the best I've ever seen. He's made a couple one-hand ridiculous plays. But his ability to go up over a DB, that's something that he does much better than me.”

Garrett Wilson

Wilson will have a sizable role in Ohio State’s rotation in the fall, and how could he not? This isn’t last year.

At this point a season ago, the Buckeyes had a trio of rising seniors – Terry McLaurin, Parris Campbell and Johnnie Dixon – aided by Austin Mack, Binjimen Victor and K.J. Hill. That was the two-deep depth chart. The six returning upperclassmen left minimal room for younger wideouts to break into the rotation. Not until the final stretch of the season did Chris Olave break through, catching a pair of touchdowns against Michigan in the last game of the regular season and snagging a 29-yard touchdown the next week in the Big Ten title game.

Mack, Victor, Hill and Olave are back, and each will have spots in the receiver rotation. But there’s an opening for a fourth outside wideout alongside Mack, Victor and Olave.

Unless something drastic changes, Wilson will fill that role. Once again, how could he not? Ohio State won't be able to keep him off the field.

“When you turn on the tape, he's a guy that when the ball goes his way, the completion percentage is really high,” Saunders said. “And as a receiver, that's huge. Whether it's a spectacular catch or a wide-open catch just building that trust with quarterbacks, he's been able to do that this (spring). Not only quarterbacks, but teammates and coaches. We know when you throw it to him, there's a good chance of him coming down with it.”

Whether Fields or Baldwin takes the field against Florida Atlantic on Aug. 31 – the competition will roll into the summer – it would be surprising for the starting quarterback not to develop a strong rapport with Wilson, whose natural ability doesn’t come around too often.

Day brought him up at several points this spring as someone who stood out.

“I've seen a lot of growth, period,” Hill said. “From the day he walked in the offseason training to spring football. I feel like the main thing when he developed as a person. He's growing up already from a little boy to a man, and I feel like that's why he's making those plays. And he's humble. He's sucking up everything he can. He's learning. That's all he wants to do is learn. He's coachable.”

Wilson translated that growth and ability into a strong performance on Saturday. First-year players shining in the spring game is nothing new.

Every year, a couple young, inexperienced players show out in front of the well-attended exhibition at Ohio Stadium, inevitably increasing expectations on them. Some of the spring game standouts translate that into production in the fall, while others struggle with that. Wilson seems likely to fit into the former category.

Doubt him at your own risk. He’s special.

https://www.researchgate.net/publication/331569710 ; Ключевые слова: экология, фитопланктон, рыбопродуктивность, биомасса, продукция, размерная структура фитопланктона, зоопланктон, ракообразные, фильтраторы, трофическая цепь, трофические взаимоотношения. ABSTRACT: Продуктивность популяций рыб в водоемах и водотоках определяется степенью утилизации водо-рослей фильтрующим зоопланктоном. В зависимости от доминирования тех или иных размерных групп водорослей они с разной эффективностью будут потребляться фильтраторами зоопланктона, что в результате сказывается на потоке энергии по трофической цепи от водорослей до рыб. ! Рыбопродуктивность природных водоемов во многом определяется степенью утилизации первичной продук-ции консументами, в первую очередь ракообразными с фильтрационным типом питания. В пресных и морских водоемах основная масса зоопланктона представлена так называемым «мирным» зоопланктоном; на их долю по-рой приходится до 80% общей массы зоопланктона [8; 12]. Именно фильтраторы играют ведущую роль в трансформа-ции вещества и передаче энергии по трофической цепи от фитопланктона к рыбам. В связи с малыми размерами зоопланктон имеет ин-тенсивный обмен веществ [7], высокую фильтрационную активность и плодовитость [4; 5]. Фильтрационная способ-ность их настолько велика, что в эвтрофных водоемах весь объем воды пропускается через фильтрационный аппарат зоопланктона всего за одни сутки. В море биомасса зоо-планктона меньше, чем в пресных водоемах, но и там объ-ем воды поверхностной зоны, в которой сконцентрирован зоопланктон, за год много раз проходит через фильтраци-онный аппарат зоопланктона [3].

Детрит формируется за счет органического веще-ства, выделяемого водными организмами, а также после их смерти. В некоторых изученных водоемах количество частиц планктонного детрита достигает несколько десятков частиц в 1 мл воды. В некоторых водоемах скорость оседания частиц детрита составляет около 1 м/сут., общая поверхность детритных частиц-10-20 м 2 /м 3 , в некоторых случаях больше. Детрит обладает высокой сорбционной способностью. ! | Введение | Одним из важных компонентов водных экоси-стем, включая водоемы рыбохозяйственного на-значения, является детрит. Изучению детрита и других видов биогенного органического вещества в экосистемах, в том числе в водных экосистемах, посвящена большая научная литература [1; 6-10; 13-28; 30-37; 43-50]. В подавляющем большинстве пресных водоемов (за исключением случаев цветения водорослей) де-трит по массе преобладает над живым веществом планктона. Детрит и различные формы органиче-ского вещества имеют большое экологическое зна-чение в функционировании водных экосистем []. Цель этой статьи-краткий обзор некоторых данных о детрите, с включением результатов работ авторов.

Iraqis leading efforts to enrich Arabic Wikipedia (Gilgamesh Nabeel, April 13, 2019, Al Monitor)

Leading enlightenment efforts is not something new to Iraqis, who are the inhabitants of Mesopotamia -- once the cradle of civilization. In ninth-century Baghdad, Abbasid ruler Harun al-Rashid established Bayt al-Hikmah -- the Arabic name for the House of Wisdom -- to house the monumental activity of the translation of Greek and Persian works into Arabic. This institution flourished in the reign of his son al-Ma'mun, making Baghdad the world's biggest hub of science.

"We chose this name for its historical significance," said Rayyis. He added, "That institution was a beacon of science, tolerance and exchange of cultures. The passion for science brought people of different religions and cultures -- all Jews, Muslims, Christians and others -- into one institution altogether."

Rayyis dreams of recreating that atmosphere. "We want to rekindle our people's golden age and join the global civilization," he said.

For Omar Mohammed, a Paris-based Iraqi scholar and creator and administrator of Mosul Eye, translation is such a valuable magical means. "We need it to build a new future -- a future devoid of dictatorship and ignorance," he said.

This project reminded Mohammed of Farah Antoun, a pioneer Tripoli-born enlightenment figure, writer and translator in the 19th century when he translated works into Arabic. "Hearing of Mutar's translation project made me very happy, for the freedom to access knowledge is a way to achieve eternal freedom," said Mohammed.

Upon meeting Mutar in New York this month, Mohammed suggested some books be translated into Arabic.

"Mutar promised to dedicate the project to Mosul University," he said, adding, "We are trying to make the website accessible in Mosul with more contributions from Mosul University scholars."

Currently, the House of Wisdom 2.0 project has a Facebook community of some 84,000 fans.

"We have added more than 900 articles to the Arabic Wikipedia and translated 12 books," said Mutar. He noted, "We lifted the ranking of the Arabic language to the 17th language in Wikipedia from the 19th."

While Arabic is the fourth most spoken language among internet users, only 6% of online content is available in Arabic.

"With our project, the Arabic Wikipedia is ranked 17th, preceded by the Ukrainian Wikipedia," said Rayyis. He added, "There are more than 400 million Arabic speakers, while Ukrainian is spoken by about 35 million people worldwide. We are proud of translating the full English Wikipedia content on biological evolution into Arabic -- more than 500 essays."

What is special about the House of Wisdom 2.0, according to Rayyis, is that it is a nonprofit project. "We translate hundreds of articles every month, voluntarily upload them to the Arabic Wikipedia and make them available to everyone for free," he said.

While concentrating on topics debunking conspiracy theories, topics banned in some Arab countries and content that makes people question more, Mutar emphasizes that they have no agenda other than spreading knowledge.

"We are not a political or anti-religion organization, but we embrace some of these controversial books and content because we believe Arab youth should be allowed to make up their own minds about how they want to live their lives," he said.

The reactions they get are quite encouraging.

"Within a few months, 80,000 fans followed us on Facebook," said Rayyis. "The majority of them are from Iraq, especially Baghdad, Najaf, Mosul and Basra. We have received hundreds of supportive messages so far," Rayyis added.

"It is a forum for those who adore knowledge and want to be part of an enlightened society," wrote Ismail Berwari, a lawyer from Dahuk in Iraqi Kurdistan, advising people to follow the project's page on Facebook.

          Exhibition investigates image and data circulation as a ubiquitous hallmark of contemporary culture      Comment   Translate Page      
bitforms gallery opened their second Los Angeles exhibition at the ROW DTLA. Extract investigates image and data circulation as a ubiquitous hallmark of contemporary culture. Works by Petra Cortright, Theo Triantafyllidis, Siebren Versteeg, and Addie Wagenknecht instantiate information overflow through painterly gestures in an effort to translate software into a corporeal experience. Technology as a medium foregrounds this inquiry towards surface abstraction and performative mediation. Petra Cortright considers attributes of screen-based imagery as a phenomenological encounter. Her paintings thrive off of the dissonance of digital aesthetics situated in physical space. Exhibited works are printed on aluminum and gloss paper, yet do not abandon the authenticity of the screen. Cortright achieves this expression by layering flattened, figurative imagery. Artworks titles, such as www.galaxy.com_aba + personalservice_01.jpg (2018)
          Focus needs to be on creatng hard and soft infra      Comment   Translate Page      

It is crucial for the government to keep pushing towards more effective growth-oriented policy framing and implementation in India.

The focus must be on creating both "hard" and "soft" infrastructure while facilitating effective debt usage. Hard infrastructure must see a continuation of the progress seen in areas such as highway construction and the gradual increase in participation of deep-pocketed institutional investors in owning assets. Soft infrastructure pertains to assets that help create demand for hard infrastructure assets.

Airline businesses would be an example of soft infrastructure that is so essential for robust demand for airport assets. Ensuring that both hard and soft infrastructure asset creation pick up further pace is vital.

The need to push along with creating new hard infrastructure assets such as airports, highways, energy generation & distribution etc. is evident given the trend of higher consumption. The critical aspect that needs to be kept in mind is a "sustainable" path of creation is much more likely to deliver long-term benefits than a rapid approach with pitfalls along the way.

In layman's terms, effective project planning, efficient project implementation and prudent usage of debt funding in the hard infrastructure creation process will be of vital importance.

In the recent past, active participation by capital-rich large institutional investors in the highways and renewable energy sector in India shows the demand for such assets. That said, the two Toll-Operate-Transfer (TOT) highway auctions by the National Highways Authority of India (NHAI) are symbolic that investors will be aware of both asset price and quality. While the first TOT auction saw a winning bid that was much higher than expected, the second auction had to be cancelled since the highest bid wasn't where the NHAI expected the bid price to be. The key takeaway is that investors would be discerning regarding asset quality and pricing. The government must make sure that the investment momentum sustains while learning a few lessons from the TOT auctions.

Creating soft infrastructure is as important as creating hard infrastructure. Soft infrastructure are assets that perhaps do not fit the traditional definition of infrastructure assets but are essential pillars of economic growth, primarily as soft infrastructure such as airlines create demand for hard infrastructure assets such as airports.

The recent turmoil in the airline sector further emphasises the need to create policies that help boost the sector. While it is true that any industry is subject to the travails of the business cycle, and this is especially true for airline businesses, it is also essential that all steps from a policy perspective are taken to ensure that the sector can thrive. A vibrant airline sector translates into greater usage for airport assets, thereby boosting the demand for airport infrastructure. Higher demand for airport infrastructure from the investment community can hopefully translate into a robust infrastructure creation pipeline for the sector.

One of the crucial linkages between efficient creation and operation of both hard and soft infrastructure is optimal debt usage. It is important to note that debt in itself is only as good as its usage, implying that prudent use of debt for businesses delivers value for the ecosystem. On the contrary, excessive debt usage, especially for businesses unsuitable for debt usage can lead to results that aren't suitable.

The assertion that "capital structure risk must be inversely proportional to business risk" is one that merits attention. The statement mentioned above implies that debt is more useful for businesses that have access to steady cash flows as opposed to companies that have higher variability of cash flows. So, in general, a utility business would be more suitable for debt usage than say a retail business. The caveat is that cash flow mismatches must be avoided. For instance, excessive debt servicing costs during production ramp-up periods when incoming cashflows for a utility business are low can render even suitable projects unviable.

Therefore, debt usage within the context of both the cashflow profile of the industry and cashflow matching is an essential cog in the wheel to ensure economic expansion. Measures such as effective bankruptcy regulations and prudent lending that ensure better debt usage must be encouraged even further.

The linkage between hard infrastructure, soft infrastructure and optimal debt usage is an essential one especially in the context of India's need to expedite infrastructure creation, boost economic growth and create jobs. A renewed focus on infrastructure building and the linkages is the need of the hour.

I've long wanted a way to describe distances on dungeon maps that is not tied to a standard measurement system.

This may sound crazy, but think about it: the overwhelming majority of dungeon modules use feet as a standard measurement, because D&D was made in the US and the US uses the Imperial or Customary system of measurement. You can't just switch to the metric system, because:

  • Everyone else is using a different system and it makes your product non-standard,
  • Game systems refer to the Imperial system units, not metric,
  • Metric just doesn't feel right in the context of a pseudomedieval setting, although it works great for sci-fi.
But on the other hand, the system we use makes no sense to those who aren't used to it. It's not relatable to their experience.

One solution is to use yards and meters interchangeably. You wouldn't want to do that in the real world, of course, but for a game, they are close enough that it's perfectly fine for people to pick the most comfortable and just use that.

That works for heights, but not so well for either long distances (travel) or short distances (dungeon maps.) For the former, I've already switched to giving distances in leagues, which are not exact, but translate into one hour of travel, so it's relatable. For the latter, though, typical dungeon maps use 10-foot squares (or 5-foot squares, for new school people.) That doesn't translate well into either yards or meters.

What I'm thinking of doing is using paces as my unit of dungeon distance. Like leagues, paces are not exact, but are based on human scale measurements: the length of one step. The "standard" pace is 2.5 feet, which makes the traditional old school dungeon square 4 paces.

It makes sense, because anyone doing mapping in a dark dungeon is going to be pacing out the distances, anyways, rather than using rulers or surveying equipment.

          Cientista pioneiro da IA teme "robôs assassinos", mas prefere uma visão positiva à la Star Trek.      Comment   Translate Page      
Yoshua Bengio, pioneiro da Inteligência Artificial, recebeu neste ano o Prêmio Alan Turing, considerado o Nobel da informática:


Yoshua Bengio teme que as inovações na inteligência artificial, da qual ele foi um dos pioneiros, possam levar a um futuro sombrio, caso "robôs assassinos" caiam em mãos erradas.

Mas o cientista da computação de 55 anos, canadense de fala mansa que este ano recebeu o Prêmio A. M. Turing – considerado o Prêmio Nobel da informática –, prefere ver o mundo com o idealismo de Star Trek ( "Jornada nas Estrelas"), em vez da visão apocalíptica de "O Exterminador do Futuro".

"Em 'Jornada nas Estrelas' há um mundo em que os seres humanos são governados pela democracia, todo mundo tem serviços de saúde, educação e alimentação, e não há guerras, exceto contra alguns alienígenas", disse Bengio, cuja pesquisa ajudou a pavimentar o caminho para a tecnologia de reconhecimento facial e de voz, a visão computacional e os carros autônomos, entre outras coisas. "Também tento unir a ciência com a forma como ela pode melhorar a sociedade."

Bengio falava sobre as promessas – e perigos – da IA recentemente, em seu pequeno escritório no Instituto Montreal de Aprendizagem de Algoritmos, um centro de pesquisa fundado por ele, que fez de Montreal um centro global de IA. A seu lado havia um quadro branco coberto com equações matemáticas complexas, juntamente com um aviso aos faxineiros escrito em francês: "Não apague."

Apagar essas equações poderia ter um alto custo para os seres humanos, assim como para as máquinas.

Bengio, professor de ciência da computação na Universidade de Montreal, é discreto. Mas seu trabalho em uma área conhecida como "aprendizagem profunda" – "ensinar máquinas a aprender de uma forma inspirada em nosso cérebro", diz ele – já afetou nosso dia a dia de inúmeras maneiras, possibilitando que o Google Translate converta uma sentença do francês para o mandarim, ou que um software detecte células cancerosas em um exame médico por imagem.

Ele e seus pesquisadores também estão aproveitando a IA para descobrir moléculas que poderiam curar doenças, detectar preconceitos de gênero em livros didáticos e prever quando desastres naturais vão acontecer.

Cherri M. Pancake, presidente da Associação de Maquinário Computacional, que oferece o prêmio de US$ 1 milhão, creditou Bengio e dois outros luminares da IA que compartilharam o prêmio, Geoffrey Hinton e Yann LeCun, como tendo criado a base para as tecnologias utilizadas por bilhões de pessoas."Quem tem um smartphone no bolso" sentiu seu impacto, disse ela, observando que o trabalho dos três também forneceu "novas ferramentas poderosas" nos campos da medicina, da astronomia e da ciência dos materiais.

Myriam Côté, cientista da computação que trabalhou com Bengio durante mais de uma década, descreveu-o como um iconoclasta e livre-pensador que se sentiria imobilizado pela limitação do Vale do Silício. Um verdadeiro comunitário, disse ela, ele evita a hierarquia e é conhecido por compartilhar os lucros de seus próprios projetos com os colegas mais novos, menos estabelecidos.

"Ele quer criar em liberdade", disse ela. Citando o credo dos estudantes rebeldes em 1968 em Paris, onde Bengio nasceu, ela afirma que a filosofia dele é: "É proibido proibir."

Isso pode ser visto em sua abordagem da IA.

Mesmo quando o falecido Stephen Hawking, o célebre físico de Cambridge, advertiu que a inteligência artificial poderia ser "o pior acontecimento na história da nossa civilização", e o empresário bilionário Elon Musk alertou que poderia criar um "ditador imortal", ele permaneceu otimista.

"Precisamos buscar conhecimento científico ou viveremos frustrados. Mas precisamos fazê-lo de modo sábio", disse ele. Referindo-se ao uso da álgebra para calcular os ângulos de mísseis, acrescentou: "Você não pode culpar o inventor da álgebra pela guerra."

No entanto, num momento em que os algoritmos do Facebook vêm sendo criticados por sua influência na eleição de 2016 nos Estados Unidos e em que aumenta o medo de que robôs poderiam usar a IA para perseguir pessoas sem a supervisão humana, Bengio está extremamente consciente de que suas inovações poderiam se tornar "monstros de Frankenstein". Como resultado, disse, ele apoia a regulamentação da IA, incluindo um tratado internacional que proíba "robôs assassinos" ou "armas autônomas mortais".

Mas rejeitou o "cenário do exterminador", no qual uma máquina dotada de emoções humanas se volta contra seu criador. As máquinas, salientou ele, não têm ego nem sentimentos humanos, e não são escravas que querem ser libertadas. "Imaginamos nossas criações se voltando contra nós porque estamos projetando nossa psicologia nelas", disse ele, classificando isso de "ridículo".

Filho de judeus sefarditas de Casablanca, no Marrocos, que emigraram para Paris na década de 1960, Bengio começou a se interessar por IA na infância, quando devorou livros de ficção científica de Isaac Asimov, Ray Bradbury e Arthur C. Clarke.

Bengio atribuiu seu sucesso a seus pais socialmente conscientes, observando que o pai, farmacêutico e diretor de teatro, e a mãe, agente de artistas, deram a ele e a seu irmão a liberdade de pensar por si mesmos.

Parece ter funcionado. Seu irmão, Samy, um ano mais novo, dirige um grupo de pesquisa no Google Brain, uma equipe de pesquisa de IA. Os dois eram "praticamente gêmeos", disse ele, colaborando na pesquisa e trocando ideias.

Quando ele tinha 12 anos, a família se mudou para Montreal, onde viviam seus avós maternos. Ele se lembra de que, enquanto perseguia seu mestrado e seu doutorado em ciência da computação na Universidade McGill no fim da década de 1980, se interessou pelo trabalho de Hinton, que se dedicava ao desenvolvimento de "computadores inteligentes" com base em redes neurais, algoritmos matemáticos que podem aprender tarefas por conta própria, analisando vastas quantidades de dados.

"Não era apenas matemática ou ciência da computação, mas a compreensão da inteligência humana para construir máquinas inteligentes." O trabalho de pós-doutorado no Instituto de Tecnologia de Massachusetts e no Bell Labs veio a seguir.

Bengio contou que ele, Hinton e LeCun trabalharam em redes neurais por décadas, mesmo quando muitos no departamento de ciência da computação as ignoravam, vendo-as como besteira, quase "magia negra", com pouca, ou nenhuma, aplicação prática. Para Bengio, ignorar os pessimistas e ir contra a sabedoria convencional era algo natural.

"O grande sonho de construir máquinas inteligentes desapareceu no fim dos anos 90 e as pessoas pensavam: 'Ah, é muito difícil – vamos só usar nossos algoritmos para resolver problemas concretos'", lembrou-se ele. "Acho que não ligo para o que as pessoas pensam, e eu acreditava no que estava fazendo."

Seu trabalho pioneiro transformou o campo – e o promoveu a estrela da IA –, mas Bengio ainda gosta de passar tempo com os alunos, a quem descreve como uma "família". Ele é divorciado e tem dois filhos adultos, um dos quais também trabalha com IA. Ele passa seus raros momentos livres lendo Spinoza e caminhando pela floresta perto de sua casa.

Sem se impressionar com prêmios científicos ou riqueza, Bengio salientou que a complacência e a confiança excessiva eram inimigas do progresso científico.

"Acreditar em si mesmo não é suficiente. Você pode ser autoconfiante e estar errado." (Gazeta do Povo).

The World Bank expects Iraq's economy to improve gradually


Friday, April 12, 2019

Baghdad / Al-Sabah - Zina Ibrahim

The World Bank Fund predicted that the economy will continue to weaken in the first half of 2019 and that growth in 2019 will slow by 0.7 percent of the global economy, while the Bank expects the Iraqi economy to gradually improve after the severe economic pressures of the last four years.

The global economic growth rate fell to 3.6 percent in 2018 and is expected to continue to decline to 3.3 percent in 2019.

The general economy has started a weak start and is expected to rise in the second half of the year as inflationary pressures ease as the outlook for trade tensions improves. Between the United States and China with the emergence of the prospects of the trade agreement and the efforts of major central banks to facilitate the economy.

At the domestic level, the bank expects the Iraqi economy to gradually improve after the severe economic pressures of the last four years. Real GDP growth is estimated at 0.6 percent in 2018, thanks to a marked improvement in security conditions and rising oil prices, reversing a 1.7 percent contraction in 2017. The non-oil economy saw rapid growth with a growth rate of 4 percent, Oil production slightly lower than in 2017 in line with the OPEC agreement.

Recently, the Iraqi economy has received a boost of confidence in the signing of several trade agreements with neighboring countries. Reconstruction efforts are proceeding at a moderate pace. Inflation remained low at 0.4 percent in 2018, but slightly higher than in 2017 due to rising domestic demand as well as rising food and transportation costs.

The economic outlook has improved due to higher oil prices and improved security, but restrictions on capital spending will hinder accelerated growth driven by recovery.

Growth is expected to rise to 8.1 percent in 2020, mainly due to higher oil production, with the OPEC agreement ending in mid-2019. Non-oil growth is expected to remain positive on the back of increased investment needed to rebuild the nation's devastated infrastructure network and consumption Private investment.

However, the recently approved 2019 budget represents a significant increase in recurrent spending. Unless there is a major reorientation in the fiscal policy of the comprehensive recovery approach, there will be limited fiscal space to support post-war recovery and long-term development. Rising spending, coupled with falling oil prices, would raise the projected budget deficit by 5.4 percent of GDP in 2019 before cutting it to around 3 percent in 2020-2021. Lower oil prices and increased imports would translate the balance of current transactions into deficits, partially financed by international reserves. link

Financial Policy

Friday, April 12, 2019

Thamer Hymes

Behind the leap of the Chinese economy is their saying (it does not matter if the cat is white or black as long as it eats rats). There is no doubt that our economy is very weak on the development side because of the cross-link between consumption and development.

When we compare our economic and developmental process with the experiences of developing countries, the results are not encouraging, as long as we do not define the problems of the relationship between state capital and private capital.

This is the source of the accusation within the contradictory economic system between the same capital flows and the mechanisms of transferring the sources of wealth abroad. Or keep their surpluses in regional banks.

The pretext of stability and the maintenance of the standard of living by monetary policy will remain an insignificant priority in the movement of capital and the conflict between the capital of the state and the capital of the state and its rent forces.

Therefore, our monetary, financial and economic policy should be drawn up to reach our economic identity to be a clearly defined infrastructure.

This financial challenge has resulted in a lack of confidence in saving to become the third or fourth country to import gold for the hoarding; to join trillions of dinars outside official and banking trading, Against the dollar and after a short period of time, the gold holder pays the dinar to benefit from the currency pairs as a legitimate hedge against the traditional interest.

This is a process of recycling that is not productive, but only a confrontation of expenses due, although the guarantee of gold free of any risk, and thus expand these directions of non-productive and unnecessary to become a sale installment payments and excessive to buy the dollar and repay it in installments convenient until the Umrah Upsets

The power of the consumer trend always comes at the expense of production as the cost of production increases against the random importer or programmed dumping and other economic complications that have negatively affected our government and private factories and most of the manufacturing industry, as well as the agricultural and animal product
Generally.

Thus, non-developmental loans are a patchwork and not a solution to the extent that they reinforce the current approach, which is determined by the currency market, which promotes consumerism on a daily basis, in order to reproduce the market economy and its necessities, which is not innocent after consuming consumption in all its manifestations. Money laundering and corruption of receivables.

We hope that the decision-makers and those responsible for the economic file will thoroughly review the financial and monetary deviations that took place in the previous years, and go beyond the mismanagement of our economic resources. link

          How Shrinking Newsrooms Impact Local Politics      Comment   Translate Page      
Copyright 2019 NPR. To see more, visit SCOTT SIMON, HOST: When local newspapers shrink, local communities pay the price. Research has shown that smaller newsrooms result in the scrutiny of government, lower voter turnout - and now, according to a new study, potentially fewer people who run for mayor. What are the implications of that? Meghan Rubado, a professor at Cleveland State University and a former journalist, co-authored the new study in Urban Affairs Review. She joins us from the studios of WCPN in Cleveland. Professor, thanks so much for being with us. MEGHAN RUBADO: Thanks for having me. SIMON: I gather you saw this firsthand in Syracuse when you were a city hall reporter. RUBADO: That's right. So I was a reporter at the Syracuse Post-Standard from about 2004 to 2010, and that was really during the worst, the most precipitous decline in newsroom staffing levels. So I witnessed a lot of that decline. SIMON: And how did that translate to fewer people running for mayor, though?
          17 Best Malayalam Movies To Watch On Hotstar Right Now      Comment   Translate Page      

Kerala’s film industry now has a number of fans from across the country for its crop of talented, risk-taking youngsters and innovative, realistic films. If you’ve been wondering what the fuss is all about, worry not. You can find many old and new Malayalam movies on streaming services like Hotstar, often with subtitles. So whether you adore Nivin Pauly, Fahadh Faasil, Dulquer Salmaan, Nazriya Nazim or Parvathy, settle down and work your way through this great list. 

1. Take Off  

This award-winning film, inspired by real events, traces the rescue efforts involved in bringing back a group of 19 Malayali nurses held hostage in Iraq’s Tikrit by the ISIS. The film is a treat for fans of actress Parvathy, who won her second Kerala State Film Award for this film. Take Off is also a more realistic alternative to the hyper-drama of Tiger Zinda Hai. (Pro-tip: Don’t watch the trailer. It ruins everything.)

2. Kammattipadam 

This film delves into how Kochi became the glossy-on-the-surface city it is now, on the back of land snatched from the Dalit community in the marshy lands of Kammattipadam. While the story is told from the viewpoint of Dulquer Salmaan’s character, the standout performances are by Vinayakan and Manikandan R Achari. Director Rajeev Ravi shows you Kochi as you have never seen it before.

3. Ustad Hotel  

Sit down with a cup of suleimani and watch the film that turned baby-faced Dulquer Salmaan into a hero, with the added bonus of drooling over some Malabari cuisine. The feel-good film is a must watch for Dulquer fans and for those who couldn’t get enough of him with Nithya Menen in OK Kanmani. Also, move over ‘Rowdy Baby’, ‘Appangalembadum’ will be your earworm after this. 

 

4. Premam

The “new generation” filmmakers of Malayalam cinema grew up in the ’90s and 2000s, and love taking their viewers back to those times. With its frizzy-haired heroines, boys discovering love and masculinity, Onam celebrations in colleges, and young people’s slang, Premam is a nostalgia fest for that generation, one that runs on Nivin Pauly’s charm (and the wonderfully natural Sai Pallavi). Thattathin Marayathu may have turned Pauly into a hero, but Premam established him as a bankable star.

5. Bangalore Days  

A coming-of-age film about three cousins who move to that big city adored by Malayalis for work, love and rebellion. Director Anjali Menon’s story of urban Malayali youth is more complex and less judgemental than earlier movies in the same vein. It has good performances by Nazriya Nazim, Nivin Pauly and Dulquer Salmaan, who share great chemistry.  Bangalore Days was so popular it was remade in Tamil.

6. Thondimuthalum Driksakshiyum 

A cash-strapped married couple is determined to retrieve a gold chain snatched from them while travelling on a bus. The problem is, the culprit seems to have swallowed it. With the help of their co-passengers, they catch the suspect and take him to the police station. After Maheshinte Prathikaram, Director Dileesh Pothan delivers yet again with this comedy drama starring frequent collaborator Fahadh Faasil (who is superb as the slippery thief who forces our loyalties to shift over and over again), Suraj Venjaramoodu and Nimisha Sajayan.

 

7. Koode

Joshua (Prithivaraj) returns to his home in Kodaikanal after several years to deal with a family tragedy. As he rebuilds his relationships with sister Jenny (Nazriya) and childhood friend Sophie (Parvathy), they discover painful, yet rewarding ways to heal wounds from their past. Anjali Menon’s film focuses on the emotional journey of the vulnerable male character, a far cry from the hyper-masculinity that has been made the norm by Malayalam superstars like Mohanlal and Mammootty.

8. Sandesham

“Polandine patti nee oru aksharam mindaruthu.” Say this iconic dialogue out loud and you could pick a Malayali out of any crowd. This political comedy drama is a great introduction to Sreenivasan’s particular brand of dry wit and humour. Sandesham is about two politician brothers on opposite sides of the ideological spectrum whose ambitions and petty fights drive a wedge through their family. In typical Sathyan Anthikkad style, there is a moral lesson at the end. The film is a great example of Malayalam satire at its best.

9. Ohm Shanthi Oshana

Nazriya Nazim’s Pooja is a young girl determined that she will decide who she marries. But when she falls in love with a serious, socially active young man (a dishy Nivin Pauly), she finds that there are many hurdles before the happy ending. This funny rom-com is worth watching and rewatching.

 

10. Kilukkam

Kilukkam is a cult comedy classic that you just shouldn’t miss. The film has great performances by Revathy, an eccentric tourist with a secret agenda, and the comedic pair of Mohanlal and Jagathy Sreekumar. The scenes with Thilakan and Innocent are some of the funniest in Malayalam cinema.

11. Classmates

This is a thriller in the guise of a college romance. Secrets and past resentments are picked apart when a group of people who studied together attend a reunion in memory of their deceased classmate.

12. Manichithrathazhu

More than 25 years since its release, Manichithrathazhu remains a well-made, entertaining thriller. A young couple sets up temporary home in a mansion believed to be haunted by the spirit of a dancer murdered by a powerful man who lusted after her. Shobhana won a National Award for her performance as a woman possessed by the bloodthirsty danseuse’s spirit. The film also stars Mohanlal and Suresh Gopi in lead roles. 

 

13. Oru CBI Diary Kuruppu

This movie began the Malayali fascination with the CBI. Mammootty plays Sethurama Iyer, an upright CBI officer who is called in to investigate a murder that has some powerful people very interested. This is the first in a series of popular murder mystery films.

The following films have no subtitles but are definitely worth the watch, if you understand Malayalam or can get a Malayali friend to translate as you watch.

14. Akkare Akkare Akkare 

Meet Dasan and Vijayan, two bickering friends caught in a comedy of errors while trying to do their jobs as CID officers. Mohanlal-Sreenivasan films are a genre in themselves and the 80s and early 90s were replete with these social comedies. Akkare Akkare Akkare is good introduction to their comedic collaborations. The film has a prequel in Nadodikaatu and a sequel, Pattana Praveshnam

15. Njandukalude Naattil Oridavela

In this comedy drama, a middle-aged couple struggles to break the news of the mother’s cancer diagnosis to their family. As the treatment progresses, the family must deal with the effects of the disease, unwanted advice from friends and relatives, and their own idiosyncrasies. Surprisingly, for a film about cancer, it’ll make you laugh more than cry. This feel-good movie about a dysfunctional family has a great ensemble cast led by Lal and Shanthi Krishna.

16. Yoddha 

This is the endearing tale of “Unnikuttan” and “Akkusotu”. Ashokan (Mohanlal), a young man in Kerala, finds that his destiny is linked to the young Lama of a Buddhist monastery in Nepal. A palm reader’s prophecy lands Ashokan on the streets of Kathmandu with the child monk who is on the run from a group trying to kill him. Throw in some kung fu, dark magic, family drama and Jagathy Sreekumar’s antics – and you have a fun entertainer on your hands.

17. Ennu Ninte Moideen

This is a tragic love story based on the lives of Moideen and Kanchanamala, a Muslim man and Hindu woman who fell in love in the ’60s in Kozhikode’s Mukkam village. The two fight family and social taboos to try and be with each other. The film takes you back decades with stellar performances by the cast, notably Parvathy.


          Media Watch: He's Swinging The Sweater Today, He Really Is.      Comment   Translate Page      
I listened to Saturday's game on both NESN and WEEI.

Dave O'Brien

T3: Jonathan Villar fouled off Rick Porcello's first pitch with one out and a man on second. OB said that Porcello "threw a handful of pitches last inning". That's a very unhelpful description. How many pitches are in a handful? Six? 10? 13? The correct answer, which was never broadcast, was eight. Every so often, NESN will give us a shot of O'Brien's or Jerry Remy's scorecard and I'm always amazed that neither broadcaster keeps track of individual pitches. I have scored every pitch for games since I was 12 years old. If I recall, OB uses a commercially-available scorebook. I have seen many of these in my life and have found them all to be woefully inadequate. I created my current scorecards back in 1986 by modifying a sheet of graph paper. The little boxes are great for keeping track of pitches. How can a play-by-play announcer not note every pitch in a game? Remy does seem to keep track of some types of pitches, however.

T3: Porcello's sixth pitch to Villar was Ball 3, prompting O'Brien to note it was "another full count". While Porcello had already thrown 68 pitches (and issued four walks) in only 3.1 innings, it was actually his first full count of the afternoon. (Which O'Brien likely would have known, if he kept track of pitches on his scorecard).

T3: He also said that Porcello had a 2.96 ERA in his last seven starts against the Orioles, so "he usually pitches well against them". And by "them", O'Brien meant Adam Jones, Manny Machado, Matt Weiters, Mark Trumbo, Jonathan Schoop, J.J. Hardy, Hyun Soo Kim, Seth Smith, Welington Castillo, Chance Sisco, and many others. Unfortunately, exactly none of those players were in Baltimore's lineup on Saturday - so Porcello did not pitch well.

T3: Because Joseph Abboud provides suits for the NESN announcers, his presence is acknowledged whenever possible. As Abboud is shown on-screen, O'Brien says he is "swinging the sweater" today. (Hoo-kay.) A little later, during a discussion of pocket squares, Remy says he thinks they make him look too dressed up. O'Brien admits that he does not "rock it" (the pocket-square look) very often. ... Man, there is nothing quite like hearing a guy in his mid-50s trying to sound hip.

B5: With Rafael Devers at the plate, O'Brien says you look at the young third baseman and you can envision him "hitting home runs in bunches". I want to know what O'Brien sees when he looks at Devers that would indicate Devers would hit home runs "in bunches" as opposed to hitting home runs on a more regular (or steady) basis? OB may have a future as a scout.

T3: O'Brien brings up last night's fantastic catch by Jackie Bradley and says Bradley does not talk a lot about his many amazing catches and is not the type of person to rank them in a Top 10. Last August, Bradley spoke with Chad Jennings of The Athletic and talked at length about his many amazing catches and ranked them in a Top 10. In fact, the idea of a Top 10 Catches was Bradley's idea! Which makes me wonder ... does O'Brien simply not keep up with coverage of the Red Sox? Is he extremely cheap and refuses to shell out the $48.00 for an annual subscription to The Athletic? Or does he think he already knows everything? The first option is the most likely, but I'm going to go with all of the above.

Jerry Remy

T5: Explains that Pedro Severino tried to put down a "safety squeeze" bunt rather than a "suicide squeeze", because Chris Davis, at third base, "did not take off until the batter squared around to bunt", as opposed to running as the pitcher goes into his motion. However, as Remy was saying this, the replay from the high home camera was shown and Davis did not move towards the plate at all, either before or after the batter revealed his intentions to bunt.

Also: My tolerance for Remy really drops when Dennis Eckersley is not in the booth. Anytime Remy is alone with O'Brien, he has far fewer interesting things to say.

Jerry Remy/Dennis Eckersley

The speech tic of the 2019 season (so far) is a short, repeated emphasis at the end of comments, e.g., "He hit that ball hard, he really did" or "He loves talking baseball, he really does" or "I was impressed by Eduardo Rodriguez last night, I really was". With Eckersley having the day off, Remy stepped up and said it often enough for the both of them, he really did.

NESN

When the Red Sox scored two runs in the bottom of the seventh, NESN added them to the Orioles' run total in the on-screen bug. For a few seconds, the score was 11-3 before being corrected to 9-5.

The count was 1-1 when Vazquez doubled. Note that the previous two pitches were thrown to the same spot, but plate umpire Jim Reynolds called the first one a strike and called the second one a ball. Robots!


Runners are still depicted on first and second (and the score remains 9-3) as Dwight Smith chases the carom off the wall.

Rafael Devers and Dustin Pedroia have crossed the plate and the Orioles are awarded two runs. 11-3.

After Vazquez called time at second base, the score had been corrected to 9-5.

(Thanks to zenslinger for the head's up. Also, last night, Jere noted Tom Caron's explanation of the word "chillax".) Many pitches in the strike zone graphic were labelled the "0"th pitch of a particular plate appearance. That has been a problem since the season began.

Joe Castiglione

T7: I was disappointed to hear Joe says he "really likes" the three-batter minimum for relief pitchers (unless he is hurt or the inning ends), a rule that will be introduced next season. As Cliff Corcoran of Sports Illustrated wrote (in an article I linked to yesterday), the benefits of this rule will be "negligible, at best, and very likely non-existent". MLB is, naturally, selling it to the public as a positive move that will speed up games, and Castiglione seems to have bought into this propaganda.

Sean McDonough

I liked him when he was calling Red Sox games on NESN before Don Orsillo took over the full-time job - and I like him now. (He might even make it worthwhile to suffer through Lou Merloni. Maybe.) McDonough has a great voice, is often sarcastic, and does not appear to clog the airwaves with irrelevant statistical factoids. He also possesses a well-honed sense of humour that is both verbally clever and as dry as a desert.

T7 (I could not catch (or find online) the name of the guy doing the scoreboard updates):
Red Sox Update Guy: And the poll up on @soxbooth on Twitter. I notice, Sean, that you are not on Twitter.

McDonough: No.

RSUG: But this is a captivating Twitter question. What's more shocking - the Red Sox's 3-9 start or Rob Bradford in the Marathon? Very tight voting right now, the Red Sox's 3-9 start, 55%, leading the way.

McDonough: Hmm. (interested)

Joe Castiglione: So is that an endorsement of Rob?

RSUG: I think so, not as shocking as you might expect.

McDonough: And Rob - I was saying he didn't look like he was in good shape, but he just had a very baggy shirt on. But when he got up to leave, you could tell - he's lost 50 pounds.

RSUG: He's generally unkempt, I would say.

McDonough: Wow. I thought I was the only bomb-tosser in the booth. ... Bunt try - and a foul ball by Villar back toward the screen.

Castiglione: You could get him an iron, Sean.

McDonough: Is that done, are you finished - because I like the fact you are also much more concise than Flemmball, the former Red Sox update guy.

RSUG: I'll make a note of that. I aim to be, yes. All finished. Take it away.

McDonough: Do you think - you're supposed to read this tag, are you not? ... Oh. No, you're not. You have no tag. You're not sponsored. And that's unfortunate, because that update was worthy of some income-generation (SUG laughing) for the network. One strike on Villar, their leadoff hitter, 1-for-3, an infield hit and a walk, he started the inning last inning with that leadoff walk and he scored. He takes a ball high, 1 and 1. Of course, Will Flemming, the day off. And he tried to make me feel guilty when we chided him for not being here by sending me a picture of his 10-month-old son Bailey. So I said if you're really taking a day off to spend time with your family, right, why are you listening to the game? And he just texted me and said Mrs. Flemmball says to your point -- throw to first, and it gets away, and the runner will go to second base. An errant throw by Marcus Walden, so they don't have to bunt Cedric Mullins over now -- Mrs. Flemming, Mrs. Flemmball, he calls her, says to your point about me not listening, 'Thank you, Sean', so apparently, Jennifer Flemming would like Will's attention on the family and not on this award-winning radio broadcast. ... Which he used to be a part of.
Admittedly, McDonough's deadpan humour may not translate when transcribed. I'm going to listen to the radio feed every time he calls a game. ... Could he be the one announcer I can tolerate?

I still vividly remember a moment during a game from (maybe) 2005, in which a field reporter was interviewing the wife of a Red Sox player about an upcoming food drive, and she was saying fans could bring cans of food to Fenway Park and get an autographed photo (or something). The segment ended, there was a brief pause, and McDonough said matter-of-factly: "Nice cans."

I swear I could hear the expression change on Remy's face.

These days, it's pretty easy to imagine what a city looks like from above, because we are used to aerial photography and satellite imagery. How could you accurately visualize a city from above without them? Leonardo da Vinci did so in 1502, in an age when most city maps were angled to show what they looked like to the artist. Vox takes a look at the tools da Vinci may have used to translate his 16th century "street view" to an accurate overhead city map. Just one more thing da Vinci squeezed into his prolific life. -via Laughing Squid

          Casa Vista del Pájaro: A Casita of Your Own      Comment   Translate Page      

Olga Garcίa Echeverrίa
*All six word memoirs and poetry excerpts in this blog were written by Alma Cervantes





Up, up, up in the winding cobblestone hills of San Miguel de Allende there is a gem called Casa Vista del Pájaro. It’s a unique place reserved for working class writers and educators. ¿Quién quiere ir? Virginia Woolf wrote about needing a room of her own. For those of us with artistic maῆas y modos who grew up in large families con pocos recursos, we were lucky if we had a bed of our own. Can I get a witness? Still, la Woolf woman’s declaration of the need for physical and creative space rings true, so true, especially for writers/artists of color juggling teaching schedules and/or heavy workloads, and even more so for those who are todo esto and also parents. The struggle (inner and outer) to create is real.


Palabras abandonadas, hechiseras, borrachas, curanderas; lárganse!

How do we find the time to create when the places where we give so much of our time and labor don’t (usually) support us in fundamental or even minimal ways? Without structural support or creative opportunities we begin to doubt ourselves. Those thoughts creep in...


Maybe I stopped being a writer.

I’ve been an educator for over 20 years (mostly a lecturer). During this time, I have given tirelessly to educational institutions, and yet I have mostly had to nurture my own writing, even when that writing has been directly connected to my teaching. In the end, with or without institutional support, we do what we must and what we can muster because of the love for the creative word and our art.


Step one, keep my flowers alive.

Personally, I have an aversion to having to sell myself to get into particular writing circles or spaces. I’m already exhausted. The literary world is full of white heterosexual male privilege and this constantly pisses me off. No tengo tiempo ni ganas to apply and pay more and more fees to exclusive spaces and retreats or to get rejected.  Lo que quiero es escribir, and to do this I need space and time to connect with myself and my work. Necesito tiempo y espacio to silence some of the noise that surrounds me.  I need time to really listen to the Muse (whoever the hell she is), to my Duende (that reckless cabron), and to the stories/poems that are yearning to be born. At a reading a couple of years ago, I heard the great escritora Joy Harjo give the best definition for poetry I have ever heard.  “What is poetry?” She asked. Her simple response resonated with me: “Poetry is listening.” 

We can listen anywhere, of course, because this is ultimately a state of mind, but it definitely helps to get away from the everyday and be immersed in Creative Time / Creative Space / Creative Mode to listen to our own poetry. 

Enter Casa Vista del Pájaro.





Twice now, once in 2018 and more recently at the onset of 2019, I was invited and fortunate enough to visit Casa Vista del Pájaro.  During my visits, I did nothing but eat great food, drink strong coffee, walk, sleep, dream, and write. Although I did not write all day like an obsessed loca at the keyboard (like I imagined I would), I wrote every single day. More than anything, the space reconnected me to my writing projects and creative self, and the creative flow stayed with me long after leaving San Miguel. 

Meet Alma Cervantes and her husband Ken Udas, who have been brainstorming and manifesting Casa Vista del Pájaro for the past couple of years. 


Alma Cervantes and Ken Udas, 2018 at El Charco del Ingenio. 


Amor, canoso y grumpy, I scored!

Casa Vista del Pájaro has three houses on the premises. There is the primary casa where Alma and her canoso dwell. The other two adjacent casitas (known as Las Casitas) are smaller, but they are equally charming and each has its private entrance. What's admirable is that Alma and Ken intentionally set out to share their space with people like me, jaded working class artists/educators who need a damn break and want / need a beautiful place to create sans mierda! Okay that may sound jaded because it’s in my words. 

Here are Alma Cervantes’ own words, “In 2017 we moved from Australia to San Miguel de Allende. Ken and I agreed that sharing the beauty of San Miguel would further contribute to our own happiness. Long story short, we instructed our Real Estate agent to show us homes that had that extra space. We are educators, we wish to welcome dedicated people who fall under the umbrella of Education...As a past writer, I reach out to writers too. One of the greatest challenges I faced as a writer was finding and then protecting my writing time and space. I love the idea of helping to make creative time and space a tangible possibility for a diverse network of writers who are parents, sisters, brothers, educators, healers and artists. It is not uncommon that creative people usually live, survive, thrive on a budget. Renting in San Miguel de Allende is normally not affordable for working writers, educators, artists etc. It is important to us to make the Casitas financially accessible to educators and writers. We also recognize that the funds gathered will allow us to maintain and continue improving the comfort offered to guests each year.”



Alma Cervantes 2019

Alma Cervantes, who has maternal raίces and family in Guanajuato, humbly refers to herself as a “past writer” but I’d like to note that she is an EastLos literary veterana, who alongside other iconic Angelenos (such as Marisela Norte, Luis Alfaro, and Gloria Alvarez, to name just a few), helped foster and define the Chicana/o literary scene in the 1980’s, 1990’s, and beyond. I can’t stress how much of an inspiration authors like these were for those of us who had writer dreams or writer inklings in Los Angeles back in the day.  We rarely (or ever) saw ourselves mirrored in K-12 literature, college English classes, or in the "mainstream” literary scene, so hearing authors such as these read their work live in Los Angeles was food for the starving soul. It still is, but it was even more so then because we did not have the participation / representation in the literary arts that we do now. They made what seemed impossible tangible. "If they can tell/write/share their stories, maybe I can too.” 

Here's one of Alma's timeless poems from the 1990's, published in the anthology Chicana Creativity & Criticism: New Frontiers in American Literature, edited by María Herrera-Sobek and Helena María Viramontes. 

The Roots of Chicana Urban Planners 

Mom took us on walks that moved straight
but turned into spirals.

Our footsteps were like the stitches she sewed,
guiding the tela north, west, south, east, 
again and again. 

We had to keep moving to new yet familiar
neighborhoods, but as time passed
the new ones felt the same as the old ones. 

Her Heart, Gut, Mind united in clamor and motion of 
the machine.
Determined were her hands that guided tela forward, always forward.
Her eyes saw more than stitches, 
things I longed to see.

We continued to take walks, but the road kept turning 'round and
      'round no
matter how far we traveled. 

“Our walks will change when we earn more money,” she 
       reassured me,
but the spiral roads always turned against us. 

She continued to push tela forward, always forward, carefully
        watching each stitch 
take its place. 

One day my spiral walks 
Ended.

I kissed her goodbye and walked away. 
Self guided by the discipline of her hands and
depth of her visions.

Today I cut through old material,
weave through rigid structures
prepare new patterns;
I am a Chicana urban planner. 


What happens when a Chicana urban planner, powered by the lessons of her mother's hands and visions, migrates back to Mexico with her esposo and takes her planning to an international level? Well, you get Casa Vista del Pájaro.


Shared patio area outside Las Casitas:
Where you can write or eat or stare at the sky and daydream.

Let me tell you a bit about the Casitas, which are the two houses reserved for visiting writers. Keep in mind that these Casitas are newborns and that they will continue to develop as more people visit them. They are not designed as fancy resorts.  Also, depending on an individual’s health and mobility, there may be some challenges, as San Miguel de Allende is very hilly and walking the cobblestone streets requires good suela on your zapatos and a certain level of affinity and ability for movimiento. 


Meet rugged cobblestone, a rocky type of foot acupuncture--es gratis! 

Although there is asphalt and plenty of cement banquetas, there is also a good amount of rugged cobblestone. Uno tiene que pisar con awareness and even for someone like me who hikes pretty regularly, I found myself out of breath often and stopping under the shade of a tree or an awning to collect myself. If you’re sensitive to altitude, keep in mind that San Miguel Allende is 6,234 feet above sea level.  To give some perspective, Los Angeles is 285’ and the Bay Area is about 50’. The high altitude makes moving around in San Miguel a little harder on the lungs and body. 




Regular hydration helps. Also, you don’t have to walk everywhere. There are very affordable taxis and they are ubiquitous, but an observation I made about San Miguel de Allende taxis is that they  tend to be “snug” in regards to leg space. If you don’t or can’t walk much and don’t mind small taxis, then adelante! You can also ask to sit in the front passenger seat, which usually has a lot more leg room. Se puede, but having a sense of some of these San Miguel de Allende realities and limitations may help in deciding if this is a place you’d like to plan a retreat to. You may also want to just bunker down in your casita and write, but the museums, boutiques, and mercados are very tempting. 





The casita I stayed in was beautiful and well-equipped with everything I needed for a week-long stay. (The casitas are available for longer stays.) There’s a small kitchen with a mini-fridge, a propane gas stove top for cooking, a large sink, casuelas and cooking utensils, and a coffee maker (¿qué más quieren?) 




There’s a living room / lounge area with a writing desk that can also serve as a kitchen table. This is where I sometimes wrote and where I sometimes ate my chilaquiles and huevos or whatever I bought from the women vendor in the downtown mercado. What do these women in the town plaza cook up and sell? Oh, nothing fancy, just fresh delicious nopales, fluffy arroz, frijoles, tamales, and divine blue corn tortillas and gorditas that will make you chew slowly as you conjure up love hiakus to a Colbalt Blue Corn Goddess. 


Edible cosas from the downtown mercado. Why cook?


I also have a deep love for San Miguel de Allende donuts. They are not all the same, though. But I know an exceptional donut when I see/eat one. Estimadxs Amigxs, les presento a mi amor, Dona Naranja. 



The Best Glazed Dona Ever

Inside the casita, there is an enchanting narrow tile staircase that you shouldn’t try to run up or slide down. I will not share if I tried either or both of these things; just don't do it. 


Picture of stairs leading up to the bedroom and bathroom.
Small table and chair in this picture have been replaced with a writing desk and chair.


The living room is small but very Zen, with limited amount of things. Marie Kondo would approve. The stairs lead up to a bedroom where you can sink into one of those fancy foam mattresses and dream up your writer or teacher dreams. Or just dream. While there, I dreamed my favorite reoccurring dream—empty dark space, endless floating black matter with occasional flickers of glitter. When I dream nothing but darkness, I know I have entered true rest / true creative realm. 

The bedroom has the essential: drawers, a place to hang clothes (if you’re into that kinda thing), extra blankets por si hace frίo, un espejo to admire your badass self, and a small ropero that can serve as a second desk. It did for me. 



My ropero-desk

There is a lovely window that opens up into poetic pieces of San Miguel sky and the bustling city down below. Bird’s eye view. Vista del Pájaro from a window. I don't have a picture of the view, but here's the dreamy window. Those side ladders on the wall should not be climbed. They are not for humans. They are for your Duende to climb up to the roof if he or she is restless and needs moonlight inspiration. 


Large Ventana / Small Balcony in Bedroom 


About the bustling city down below: For the most part the bustle está retirado, but you can hear carros when they drive near and past the street, which is one of the oldest carreteras in town and leads out to the neighboring state of Querétaro. Also audible at times are the downtown church bells, which are quite sensational. They don’t ring often on most days. On Sundays, however, they ring every fifteen minutes. Yes, you read that right. Every. Ring. Fifteen. Ring. Minutes. Ring. 




Las acciones que puedes hacer deslizando el dedo sobre el teclado de Gboard no se limitan a la escritura. También hay otros bastante más curiosos, como el de desplazar el cursor deslizando el dedo sobre la barra espaciadora hacia la izquierda o hacia la derecha.

Cuando lo hagas, moverás el cursor también hacia izquierda o derecha en el texto que estés escribiendo. Esto puede ser útil, por ejemplo, si has cometido un error y quieres volver al punto exacto donde lo has hecho para cambiar una letra. Tocar justo en ese punto con el dedo para ir allí a veces es complicado y rompe el flujo de escritura, pero hacerlo con este gesto puede ayudar mucho con la precisión, sobre todo si está cerca de por donde vas escribiendo.

19. Borra los textos con gestos

Ahora vamos con otro gesto muy parecido, sólo que lo haces deslizando el dedo en otra tecla. Gboard te permite seleccionar y borrar un texto desliando el dedo en la tecla de retroceso (DEL), que es la tecla para borrar. Cuando deslices el dedo, irás seleccionando las palabras sobre las que pases, y cuando sueltes el dedo de la tecla se borrará el texto seleccionado.

20. Alterna entre mayúsculas y minúsculas

Otro gesto muy práctico que puedes hacer es el de convertir de mayúsculas a minúsculas y viceversa las palabras que hayas escrito, algo que viene muy bien si has ido escribiendo a lo loco y luego descubres que te has dejado algunas mayúsculas sin poner, ya sea las de principio de una frase o las de cada palabra de un nombre.

Para hacer esto, selecciona las palabras que quieras y ve tocando la tecla Mayúsculas del teclado. Al tocar varias veces la tecla Mayúsculas, verás cómo las fórmulas van alternándose, y las palabras pasan Mayúsulas > Minúsculas > Primera letra en mayúsculas > Mayúsculas, etcétera.

21. Atajos para los signos de puntuación

Puntuaciones

Gboard también tiene una serie de atajos para acceder de forma rápida a los signos de puntuación. Si mantienes pulsada la tecla del punto '.', aparecerá un menú en el que podrás seleccionar las exclamaciones, interrogantes, paréntesis y demás signos. Además, si mantienes pulsados algunos números de la fila de arriba aparecerán fracciones y otros símbolos matemáticos como la n.

22. Borra las sugerencias que no te gusten

Borrar Sugerencias

Al igual que otros teclados, el de Google también analiza lo que vas escribiendo para realizarte sugerencias de escritura. Estas sugerencias aparecen en la barra superior, y funcionan de manera que cuando empiezas a escribir una palabra te sugieren cómo terminar de escribirla para que sólo tengas que pulsar en la sugerencia para completarla y te ahorres unas cuantas pulsaciones.

¿Y qué pasa con las sugerencias que no quieres que vuelvan a aparecer? Pues que puedes borrarlas. Para ello, mantén pulsado el dedo sobre la sugerencia que quieres borrar, y empieza a moverla hacia arriba. Suéltala en la papelera que aparecerá y listo, la sugerencia habrá sido borrada. Aun así, si es una palabra que utilices mucho posiblemente acabe volviendo a aparecer con el tiempo.

23. Las sugerencias también sirven para buscar emojis

Sugerencia Emojis

Una de las mayores particularidades de Gboard, y una de las opciones que más ayudan a diferenciar a este teclado de otras alternativas, es que su sistema de sugerencias y texto predictivo también te sirve para buscar emojis.

La mala noticia es que la predicción de emojis sólo funciona en inglés. Aun así, si entiendes el idioma puede ser de lo más útil. Por ejemplo, si escribes una palabra como Cat, gato, además de las sugerencias convencionales aparecerá una que es el emoticono de un gato. Con ello ya no tendrás que buscar directamente en la lista de emojis, y podrás hacerlo directamente escribiendo lo que describen.

24. Ver los emojis recientes en las sugerencias

Emojis Sugerencias

Si tienes varios emojis fetiches que utilices continuamente, te alegrará saber que puedes activar una opción para que en las sugerencias del teclado también aparezcan los últimos emojis que has utilizado. Esto te ayudará a tenerlos siempre a mano.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Preferencias.
  • Allí, activa o desactiva la opción Mostrar emojis en teclado símbolos.

25. También puedes dibujar el emoji que quieres buscar

Dibuja Emojis

¿Y qué pasa con esos emojis que tienes en mente cómo son pero no sabes describirlos para buscarlos? Fácil, también puedes hacer un dibujo y que Gboard encuentre los emojis que se le parecen. La opción está un poco escondida, pero una vez la encuentres seguro que la utilizas alguna vez.

  • En el teclado Gboard, pulsa sobre la cara sonriente para buscar emojis.
  • Entre emojis, GIFs y stickers, elige la opción de emojis.
  • En la barra superior, pulsa sobre la lupa para buscar el emoji.
  • A la derecha del campo de escritura para la búsqueda verás un icono como de una cara dibujada, pulsa sobre él.
  • Las letras del teclado desaparecerán, y en su lugar tendrás un espacio donde dibujar el emoji.
  • Según dibujes, el teclado te mostrará sugerencias que se parezcan.

26. Adapta el teclado para usarlo con una mano

Una Mano

Las pantallas de los móviles son cada vez más grandes, y escribir con una sola mano se va convirtiendo en una utopía apta sólo para los más hábiles. Gboard intenta ponértelo más fácil con un modo que hace que el teclado se haga más pequeño y se coloque en uno de los lados de la pantalla para que todas las teclas sean más accesibles con un único pulgar.

  • Mantén pulsado el botón de la coma ','.
  • Aparecerá un menú con dos iconos, pulsa en el que tiene el dibujo de una mano junto al teclado.
  • El teclado se adaptará a una sola mano, dejando el hueco que queda libre para otras opciones.
  • La opción con el icono de las cuatro flechas devuelve el teclado a su modo original.
  • La opción con el icono de la flecha apuntando al lado contrario hace que el teclado en modo de una mano se coloque en el otro lado de la pantalla.
  • La tercera opción hace que puedas colocar a mano el teclado donde quieras.

27. Acceso rápido a símbolos o a teclado numérico

Teclado Numerico

Por defecto, el botón de la esquina inferior izquierda del teclado está reservada para un modo en el que puedes acceder a símbolos de puntuación, otros símbolos como paréntesis, el símbolo de etiqueta, la arroba o el del euro. Cuando estás en esta vista, al lado del espacio hay un botón para pasar al teclado numérico estilo calculadora.

Pues aquí viene el detalle. Cuando entras en el teclado numérico a lo calculadora y vuelves a las letras normales, la tecla de abajo a la derecha servirá para volver a ese modo calculadora. De esta manera, puedes ir alternando entre este teclado numérico o el de símbolos dependiendo de cuál vas a utilizar más.

28. Haz que los símbolos sean más accesibles

Pulsar Simbolos

Y si no quieres estar teniendo que alternar siempre entre números o símbolos, o quieres que estos últimos sean más accesibles y estén siempre a mano, también puedes hacerlo con otra configuración. Con ella, los símbolos se añadirán a las teclas de las letras, de manera que con sólo mantenerlas pulsadas podrás verlos y utilizarlos.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Preferencias.
  • Allí, activa o desactiva la opción Mantener pulsado para ver símbolos.

29. Activar el bloqueo de mayúsculas

Bloq May

Esta también es fácil. Si quieres escribir una palabra en mayúsculas tienes dos formas de activar el bloqueo de mayúsculas: Con una doble pulsación rápida o una pulsación prolongada sobre la tecla Mayúsculas. La forma más rápida es la doble pulsación.

También puedes mantener la tecla de mayúscula mientras escribes para no tener que bloquear nada, exactamente como si fuera un teclado convencional. Lo malo de este método es que resulta bastante más complicado de utilizar a la hora de escribir.

30. Doble espacio para el punto

Si estás escribiendo frases largas, una de las teclas que más veces pulsarás es la barra espaciadora. Por eso, Google ha considerado poner un acceso directo al punto en ella. Si pulsas dos veces sobre la barra espaciadora escribirás un punto y seguido. Es verdad que el punto está justo al lado de la barra espaciadora, pero en algunos contextos puede ayudar a no tener que pensar tanto al escribir.

31. Utiliza dos idiomas a la vez

Idiomas

Otra de las particularidades de Gboard es que te permite configurar varios idiomas diferentes, permitiéndote usarlos a la vez mostrándote sugerencias y el corrector automático en el idioma que detectes que estás escribiendo. Puedes añadir los que quieras, pero si pones más de tres tendrás que ir tocando la tecla del mundo para ir cambiando los tres idiomas activados.

  • Abre el teclado y entra en su menú de Ajustes.
  • Ahora, pulsa en la opción Idiomas.
  • En esta pantalla verás los que tienes añadidos. Pulsa en Añadir teclado para poner más.
  • Ahora simplemente selecciona los que quieras utilizar.

32. Mostrar u ocultar la fila de números

Fila Numeros

Gboard es un teclado que puedes configurar de mil y una manera, pero el primer consejo que te vamos a ofrecer para hacerlo tiene que ver con algo tan sencillo como mostrar siempre u ocultar la fila de números sobre las letras. A algunos nos gusta tenerla siempre visible, mientras seguro que otros prefieren ahorrarse el espacio extra que supone tenerla ahí.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Preferencias.
  • Allí, activa o desactiva la opción Fila de números.

33. Cambia la altura del teclado

Altura Del Teclado

Tener o no tener la fila de números repercute en el tamaño del teclado. Sin embargo, hay otra opción con la que puedes configurar su altura para saber cuánto abarca dentro de la pantalla. Así, podrás ajustarlo a la altura que quieras para tener más espacio donde pulsar al escribir o que no tape tanta pantalla.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Preferencias.
  • Allí, activa o desactiva la opción Altura del teclado.
  • Se abrirá una barra deslizable donde tienes cinco posiciones, que van desde poca a mucha altura, pasando por Media-poca.
  • Selecciona la altura que quieras y pulsa Aceptar.

34. Modifica la vibración y el sonido de las pulsaciones

Pulsacion Tecla

Imagínate que llevas años utilizando otro teclado para tu móvil. En esos casos, pasarse a uno nuevo puede ser incómodo no sólo por las opciones, sino por** cómo vibra y "se siente" cuando tecleas**. Afortunadamente, Gboard lo puedes ajustar por completo para cambiar cómo vibra e incluso los sonidos que hace o no hace cuando pulsas las teclas.

En los ajustes del teclado, entra en la sección Preferencias. Allí, en el apartado Pulsación de teclas puedes cambiarlo todo, desde si quieres que suenen al pulsarse hasta su volumen, si quieres sentir una pulsación e incluso la intensidad de esta pulsación. Préstale atención también a Retraso al mantener pulsado, que es el tiempo que tarda en emerger el menú de teclas extra cuando mantienes una pulsada.

35. Cambia el estilo del teclado

Distribucion

QWERTZ, AZERTY, Dvorak, Colemak o la distribución del teclado de un PC. Gboard te permite configurar a tu gusto la distribución de las teclas sin depender únicamente del idioma en el que estés escribiendo. Esto lo puedes ajustar a la hora de añadir un idioma, o editando alguno de los que ya tengas añadidos.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Idiomas.
  • Allí, pulsa sobre uno de los idiomas que tengas añadidos o añade otro.
  • Cuando entres en la configuración del idioma, verás que arriba del todo aparecen las distribuciones, como QUERTY con o sin ñ, escritura a mano y muchos más.

36. Escribe en morse

Morse

Y aquí un peculiar huevo de pascua. Si cambias los estilos de teclado como te hemos dicho antes, verás que si lo haces con el inglés de Estados Unidos podrás escribir en morse. Una vez elegido este estilo, podrás controlar los tiempos de espera para separar los caracteres o las palabras. La mayoría de gente nunca lo va a utilizar, pero nunca está de más tenerlo en cuenta.

37. Añade tus propias palabras a un diccionario

Anadir Diccionario

¿Cómo, que en Gboard no aparecen palabras como fistro? Pues puedes añadirla al diccionario fácilmente. De esta manera, puedes adaptar el teclado para que hable como a ti te gusta. Este diccionario también funciona para crear abreviaturas, pudiendo hacer que por ejemplo cada vez que escribas xtk el diccionario te sugiera o autocorrija cambiando el término por Xataka.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Diccionario.
  • Pulsa en Diccionario personal.
  • Ahora, al pulsar sobre alguno de los diccionarios que tengas añadido verás un botón de suma para meter tus propias palabras y abreviaturas.

38. Configurar las sugerencias y corrección automática

Correccion Ortografica

Si no te gustan las sugerencias o la corrección automática de Gboard, también tienes la posibilidad de desactivarla o adaptarla a tus necesidades. Por ejemplo, puedes hacer que te sugiera nombres de contactos, palabras aprendidas o que se filtren las palabras ofensivas. También puedes activar o desactivar la corrección automática dependiendo de si quieres que Gboard cambie automáticamente las palabras que crea que escribes mal o no.

  • Cuando se abra Gboard, pulsa en el icono de la G que hay en su esquina superior izquierda.
  • Entra en la opción de Ajustes.
  • En los ajustes, pulsa en Corrección ortográfica.
  • Ahora, navega por las opciones de las categorías de Sugerencias y Correcciones para adaptarlo todo a tu gusto.

Otherwise spells like Status would include notes about them working better on close friends, but poorly on people you just met, and so on - which would be really awkward. Secondarily, of course... Sympathetic Magic is really awkward to translate effectively into game terms for a variety of reasons, many of which appear in the second half of the article. I really must start letting things sit for a while before proofreading them again. There's just too strong a tendency to fill in missing bits in your head unless you let things rest...

          SICP Goodness - Stream (VII)      Comment   Translate Page      

Do you think Computer Science equals building websites and mobile apps?

Are you feeling that you are doing repetitive and not so intelligent work?

Are you feeling a bit sick about reading manuals and copy-pasting code and keep poking around until it works all day long?

Do you want to understand the soul of Computer Science?

If yes, read SICP!!!

Let’s examine some examples from the book and furthur explore the stream paradigm.

The Square Root Problem Revisited

In the beginning of the book there is this square root example. Let’s recap here.

Basically, the example shows a way to calculate sqrt of x as a process of guessing. The guess starts with 1, and the next improved guess is calculated by the function:

(define (sqrt-improve guess x)
  (average guess (/ x guess)))

We just keep improving the guess until it converges to a certain value.

Actually the series of guesses can be seen as a stream.

(define (sqrt-stream x)
  (define guesses
    (cons-stream 1.0
                 (stream-map (lambda (guess)
                               (sqrt-improve guess x))
                             guesses)))
  guesses)

If you have difficulties understanding the procedure above. Let me translate it into English.

Suppose we want (sqrt-stream 2).

The first guess is 1.

Now we know the stream looks like this:

(1 …)

We also know that the cdr of this stream is to map the sqrt-improve onto guesses itself.

The stream actually looks like this:

(1 the rest of the stream is to map the sqrt-improve onto the stream itself)

Since we know the stream’s first item is 1, at least we know how to calculate the 1st value of the cdr of the stream. That is (/ (1 + 2) 2) which is 1.5.

Now we know the stream looks like this:

(1 1.5 …)

Now we know the 2nd value of the stream, that means we know how to calculate the 2nd value of the cdr of the stream(which is the 3rd value of the stream). Just apply the sqrt-improve to it. (/ (1.5 + 2) / 2) which is 1.416666.

Now the stream looks like this:

(1 1.5 1.416666 …)

Now we know the 3rd value of the stream, that means we know how to calculate the 3rd value of the cdr of the stream(which is the 4th value of the stream) and so on.

We can then write a procedure stream-limit to find out when the value stops changing.

(define (stream-limit s tolerance)
  (if (<= (abs (- (stream-ref s 0) (stream-ref s 1))) tolerance)
      (stream-ref s 1)
      (stream-limit (stream-cdr s) tolerance)))

Let’s try to run it:

1 ]=> (stream-limit (sqrt-stream 2) 0.01)

          Millennials are building multimillion-dollar beauty empires on their massive Instagram and Snapchat followings, and it's disrupting a centuries-old industry      Comment   Translate Page      

selfie made millionaires and billionaires 4x3

  • From Rihanna to Emily Weiss, more young women are disrupting the beauty space with cosmetic lines that thrive on social media.
  • While millennials are leading the way with the industry's disruption, other generational outliers — notably 21-year-old Gen-Zer Kylie Jenner and 62-year-old Anastasia Soare — are also key players in the trend.
  • Over time, beauty industry marketing has evolved from word-of-mouth and traditional ad campaigns to Instagram tutorials and user-generated content, making it easier than ever to launch a new brand.
  • This has opened the door for celebrities and influencers to create their own beauty brands and sell them to their strong social media followings, transforming fanbase numbers into revenue.
  • This has given rise to a new generation of wealthy women, who sit on top of beauty empire fortunes they created with their own digital prowess.
  • Visit BusinessInsider.com for more stories.

Social media has minted a new type of money maker: the "selfie-made billionaire."

That's what Natalie Robehmed of Forbes dubbed Kylie Jenner, the world's youngest self-made billionaire ever. 

Jenner's $1 billion net worth comes largely from her eponymous cosmetics line, Kylie Cosmetics, which launched in 2015. Three years later, revenue was an estimated $360 million, the company worth $900 million, Robehmed reported. 

While Jenner may be one of the more extreme examples, she isn't an anomaly — a long history of women have accrued wealth by building beauty empires. The first female self-made millionaire, Madam CJ Walker, built her fortune off a line of hair care products she developed in 1905, according to Isis Madrid of Broadly. Beauty mavens Estée Lauder and Bobbi Brown started their brands decades before the millennium.

In 2018, Jenner was a newcomer to Forbes' richest self-made women list, along with Forbes' other "Instagram-savvy makeup moguls" — Anastasia Soare, Huda Kattan, and Kim Kardashian West, who all also have their own beauty lines.

Then there's Emily Weiss, founder and CEO of cult beauty brand Glossier. On March 19, the direct-to-consumer beauty brand hit unicorn status with new funding that put its value at $1.2 billion, reported Katie Roof and Yuliya Chernova of The Wall Street Journal

While these women aren't the first of their kind to build wealth by tapping into the beauty industry, they are part of a growing number of women who have successfully done so by leveraging social media. What's changed isn't the idea of starting a cosmetics line, but how millennials are disrupting the process in today's technological age while propelling fast company growth and amassing personal fortune.

Estée Lauder and Bobbi Brown got their start through word-of-mouth

"Getting a brand known has from the beginning involved word-of-mouth and getting attention from an influential journalist," Geoffrey Jones, a professor at Harvard Business School and author of the book "Beauty Imagined," told Business Insider.

Estee Lauder

Consider Estée Lauder: "She gave away 80 of her lipsticks as table gifts for a charity luncheon in the Waldorf-Astoria," Jones said. "The rich guests then walked over to the nearby Saks Fifth Avenue to ask for it."

In 1947, Lauder received her first major order for $800 worth of products from Saks. She grew her business with traditional print advertising and word-of-mouth campaigns, believing that women who liked her products would spread the word. In 2018, the company reported $13.68 billion in net sales and Bloomberg estimated the Lauder family to be worth $24.3 billion.

The beauty behemoth now has nearly 30 brands in its portfolio; in 1995, it acquired Bobbi Brown Cosmetics, making the line's namesake founder a millionaire, reported CNBC's Catherine Clifford

Bobbi Brown

Being bought by a big firm is a sign of success, Jones said. Bobbi Brown, who told Inc. she began the line with $10,000, also favored a word-of-mouth strategy. By talking to strangers and friends, she found a business partner, landed a mention in Glamour magazine, conducted market research, connected with a Bergdorf Goodman cosmetics buyer, and secured regular appearances on The Today Show, according to Clifford.

But that was before the disintegration of traditional distribution channels, which Jones said has happened over the past decade.

Anastasia Soare

Look no further than Soare's Anastasia of Beverly Hills line to see this shift in action. According to Forbes, it's one of the first beauty companies to use a successful social media strategy — but Soare didn't begin that way.

The aesthetician first became a celebrity favorite in the early 1990s for perfecting the eyebrow. In 2000, she took the traditional route, launching her first line of products in 20 Nordstrom stores, reported Forbes. But it didn't really take off until Soare took to Instagram in 2013 with a viral social media campaign, which helped land her products in Sephora.

Today, the company's Instagram has 19 million-plus followers, and the company has a Forbes estimated value of $1.5 billion. Soare herself is worth an estimated $1 billion, making her one of the world's richest self-made women.

A shift to digital means brands can make the consumer an influencer

As Soare's success indicates, "Social media has become the new door-to-door," Jensen said, adding it "allows consumers to research, investigate, and gather information on everything from ingredients to brand values to see if they align to their own. The brands that use social media well are leveraging it to build a two way street of communication with their followers and because of that, they get buy-in to the brand."

Consider Weiss, who realized that social media was "transforming the way beauty products were talked about and bought," and intended to disrupt the industry, wrote Amy Larocca of The Cut, hailing her as the millennial Estée Lauder.

"There are a handful of beauty conglomerates, and it's difficult for them to innovate," Weiss, who uses social media as market research, previously told Business Insider. "Beauty has really gone online, because that's where the customer is."

In 2010, she launched the blog Into the Gloss. It soon became popular among beauty mavens, amassing 10 million page views per month, according to Alyssa Goacobbe of Entrepreneur — a solid platform on which to launch the first four Glossier products in 2014.

Instead of aiming at wholesale, Weiss intended to crowdsource — through social-media platforms, affiliate sponsorships and links, and gossip, wrote Larocca. As Gaby Del Valle of Vox puts it, Glossier's success lies in treating its customers like influencers.

To market a new blush, Cloud Paint, Weiss hired makeup artists to use it on Oscar-attending celebrities and post the results on social media, Giacobbe wrote — regrams resulted in 1,700 user-generated images in one week; by one month, Instagram had 6,368 Cloud Paint images.

In a recent podcast interview, Weiss said that Instagram "has been an incredible tool to show a lot of user-generated content." 

While Weiss' net worth is unknown, the $1.2 billion value of Glossier says enough.

A social media following equals revenue for celebrities foraying into beauty

"Having a large social media following equates to sales," Jensen said.

A strong social media presence is so directly tied to revenue that it can lay the whole foundation for a beauty empire's success — those with stardom and a following already have a fanbase with built-in customers, and nowhere is that more visible than in Kylie Jenner's and Rihanna's respective beauty empires.

"It's the power of social media," Jenner told Robhemed. "I had such a strong reach before I was able to start anything."

Jenner launched Kylie Cosmetics to 50 million Instagram followers on her personal account, reported Sarah Grossbart for E! News. Nearly four years later, that number has more than doubled. "With more than 100 million Instagram devotees, she need only post a selfie touting her shade of the day and her young followers clamor to add it to their carts," Grossbart wrote.

Dubbed "Cosmetics Queen" by Forbes, Jenner continues to push direct-to-consumer Kylie Cosmetics by sharing products, announcing launches, and previewing new items to her 175 million-plus followers across Snapchat, Instagram, Facebook, and Twitter, Robhemed reported

"I don’t pay for advertisements," Jenner told Fast Company. "I don’t do commercials. Social media is the only way I push it: Snapchat, Instagram."

She didn't sign her first distribution deal until three years later, with Ulta, which she pushed with her "usual social media," Jenner told Robhemed — it sold an estimated $54 million worth of products in the first six weeks.

Similarly, Rihanna, who has an estimated $260 million net worth and nearly 69 million Instagram followers, launched Fenty Beauty at New York Fashion Week in 2017 — and she first alluded to with an Instagram teaser. In just one month, it made $72 million in earned media value (the potential value it would have earned if paid for all exposure on social media platforms), outpacing Kylie Cosmetics according to a Tribe Dynamics' Cosmetics report released by WWD.

About 132 million people watched Fenty beauty tutorials in the first month of its launch, reported Janice Williams of Newsweek. Within its first 40 days, Fenty brought in $100 million in sales, according to Vogue.

"Fenty Beauty’s social media game has had a clear impact on its success," Williams wrote. "While Rihanna's social media handle flooded Twitter, Instagram, Snapchat, and YouTube with photos, videos and tutorials, millions of people used their own social media accounts to show off their products and offer testimonials."

In its first year alone, Fenty made $566 million, reported the Business of Fashion, citing an LVMH report — it took Estée Lauder 10 years to earn $500 million, according to WWD.

Youtube creators translate their personalities into beauty brands

Not every beauty influencer is a celebrity — some gained notoriety because of YouTube or Instagram, and successfully translated their social media personalities into massive beauty brands and multimillion-dollar net worths.

Huda Kattan, called one of the most influential beauty bloggers in the world by The New York Times, began sharing makeup tutorials, how-to videos, and tips on Instagram and YouTube in 2010. Her following grew so much that when she launched synthetic and faux mink lashes in 2013, they sold out on her first day. Today, she has over 577 million Instagram followers between her personal and private accounts and 3.1 million YouTube subscribers.

Huda Kattan

Kattan told CNN Instagram was the turning point. "It was the catalyst that changed everything," she said. "It changed the dynamics in which people not only communicate but are inspired as well."

Retail sales for Huda Beauty hit $1.5 million the first year — revenue for 2018 was expected to be $300 million, according to ForbesForbes valued her company at $1 billion and Kattan herself worth $500 million, based largely on their "valuation of her stake in the company." 

It's a similar success story for influencer Michelle Phan, who got her start sharing beauty tutorials and guides on YouTube — 40,000 people watched her first video the first week; the now defunct channel has nearly 9 million subscribers.

Michelle Phan

Phan, reportedly worth $50 million, parlayed that success into the cosmetics industry with makeup subscription company Ipsy in 2011, valued at $800 million with more than 1.5 million subscribers just five years later, according to Yahoo. In 2013, she launched her own cosmetic line for L'Oreal called EM Cosmetics. 

"Influence is the new power — if you have influence you can create a brand," Phan told Forbes.

Beauty is booming

It's easy to see why more influencers and celebrities are entering the beauty space — and the effect they're creating when they do. The beauty industry has grown exponentially over the last three decades, Jones said. As of 2010, the beauty industry had global sales of $330 billion worldwide, according to "Beauty Imagined."

"In the past, luxury brands sold through department stores and mass brands sold through drugstores," Jones said. Now, though, "the whole market has fragmented, providing the opportunity for the launch of many new brands."

Over 1,000 beauty brands have entered the prestige market since 2015 because it's lucrative, healthy, and profitable, Larissa Jensen, beauty analyst at The NPD Group, told Business Insider.

It's also easier than ever before to create and launch a brand, Jennifer Walsh, co-founder of retailer Beauty Bar, consultant, and brand marketer, told Business Insider. And the power of digital has made it even easier to reach consumers.

"For decades, we had to rely on print media and TV to introduce a brand or products," she said. "Now, we can have our own channel online. If you have a great product, beautiful packaging, and are good at storytelling, you can truly get your message/product out to others quickly."

          Cutting off Puerto Rico's Medicaid is not a 'fiscal cliff.' It will push people off a cliff—to die      Comment   Translate Page      

After Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in September of 2017, we saw photos like the one above, of funerals across the island. The disaster death toll post-Maria was the highest in modern U.S. history. 

What is distressing, and almost unfathomable, is the fact that we are heading toward an even higher death toll—and this one will be completely man-made, and preventable. 

I want us to start talking, hollering, and pressuring the Senate about the dire consequences facing our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico—now.

Not at the last minute.

Not after the damage has already been done.

More than 1 million Puerto Ricans are already seeing cuts to food stamp benefits. Democrats’ fight being waged with Trump and McConnell over disaster aid funding has not succeeded.

I’ve read articles with headlines that talk of the “Medicaid fiscal cliff” for Puerto Rico—which don’t convey the severity of the disaster in the making. There are going to be a lot of Puerto Ricans who will be doomed to die if they lose both medical treatment and the life-sustaining drugs they need.

That “fiscal cliff” is the cutoff of additional money that increased coverage on the island until September 2019.  When the money goes, at least 900,000 people will lose coverage.

This is not simply a matter of “Oh well, they will have to flee the island and move to the mainland.”

It is not just “Oh well, they should become a state,” as if the status issue is going to be resolved any time soon.

And though some Democratic presidential candidates have mentioned Puerto Rico, or talked of future plans, those words don’t translate into medicine and treatment, while Trump continues to use PR as a punching bag to rile up his base.

What is going to happen will kill more people than Hurricane Maria did—unless we begin to take action NOW.

While working on the Bible, he realized that many of the stories this book tells where mistranslated, misinterpreted, mostly on purpose, in order to insert the notion of a spiritual, all-mighty and unerring God. The picture he gives us of the bestseller of all times is surprisingly different from what we all were told. Actually, as soon as he released "THE BOOK THAT WILL FOREVER CHANGE OUR IDEAS ABOUT THE BIBLE - THE GODS COMING FROM SPACE", the Vatican suspended all further publications of Mauro Biglino's works: Let's discover why!

The linguistic and philological knowledge acquired through the study of Hebrew Masoretic manuscripts, as well as his knowledge of Latin and Greek , allowed Biglino to work as a translator for Edizioni San Paolo, the Vatican publishing house that eventually published 17 books from the Ancient Testament including Biglino’s interlinear literal translations from the Stuttgartensia Bible. The 17 Books of the Ancient Testament that Mauro Biglino translated for the San Paolo Publisher include the 12 prophetes and five meghilotts Note: Of course, this interpretation, no matter what ultimately is found to be the truth, does not negate the reality or possibility that God or an ultimate creator exists.

This pattern consists of 7 pages. It comes with many pictures detailing the different stages of crocheting.

          Zoom F6 Field Recorder Announced – Record in 32bit Without Even Setting Levels      Comment   Translate Page      

Last year at NAB  Zoom has launched the F8n, a professional-grade multitrack field recorder with great build-quality and advanced features like the Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters, Zoom’s AutoMix, great preamps, timecode in/out and lots more. Now the Zoom F6 field recorder sports the same preamps as the F8n did, with the added benefit of being able to utilise dual A/D converters and record in 32bit, instead of standard 24bit, thus making setting levels and clipping a thing of the past. Information is somewhat limited at this point, but here’s what we were able to find out.
The Zoom F6 is not as big in size as you might think. In fact, it’s tiny!
The Zoom F6  has six  XLR-inputs and features the same very low noise-floor preamps found in the Zoom F8n (−127 dBu EIN). There is a line-out, a headphone output with a tiny volume wheel and  a timecode in/out (again this is the same as in the F8n. Not continuing the similarities the F6 only has a single SD card slot. Powering the Zoom F6 should be rather easy, given all the options the unit offers: the F6 can either be powered by four AA batteries, USB-C or an L-Series  battery, for which their is a built-in mount on the unit’s backside. The front of the unit  is dominated by six faders, a tiny yet informative LCD and three main buttons to controle recording and playback. The unit can also be connected to Zoom’s Bluetooth adapter and will work with Smartphone app interface as well as Zoom’s F-Control panel. The Zoom F6 will record 6  tracks, as well as a  stereo mix, so 8 channels all in all.So far so good. The Zoom F6 seems like a nice little six-input recorder.
Dual A/D converter and 32bit float
Now this is where the Zoom F6 really shines. Without going into too much detail, the way the dual A/D converters are set up, it will be nearly impossible to clip the recordings coming off the Zoom F6 – meaning the the preamp just won’t clip. That by itself is a great feature to have. But additionally, this virtually non-clippable sound will then be recorded in 32bit float, instead of the long-time industry standard of 24bit.

While 24bit can have  great audio quality there is one inherent problem: louder volumes will be recorded at better quality than lower volumes. In practice this can translate into a situation that many of us have encountered before: You record at a set gain level, and then the person starts whispering. Now you’d have to raise the gain, introducing noise. But with a 32bit recording everything would be recorded at the same quality level, no matter the volume, due to the immense dynamic headroom. On the other end of the spectrum, clipping would be really hard to achieve even you tried it on purpose and even if something clipped on output, you could bring it back down in post, similar to how highlight recovery works with RAW video: the spectrum of data recorded is larger than the available output range, that you can push the signal around more easily.

The Zoom F6 is also supposed to be able to record 32bit float to all of its tracks, while also recording 24bit files as backups simultaneously. You can also choose to only record 24bit and use the Advanced Look-Ahead Hybrid Limiters, known from the Zoom F8n.
In May we should see some more detail on the Zoom F6 emerge, together with some information on pricing. The unit should be available during the latter parts of  June according to officials from Zoom.
Are you excited about 32bit float recording and getting your hands on this ground-breaking new field recorder by Zoom? Let us know what you think in the comments!

          Nation Signing In Comments From The Discussion Thread For "Ekuweme" Sung By Prospa Ochimana & Osinachi Nwachukwu       Comment   Translate Page      
Edited by Azizi Powell

This is Part II of a two part pancocojams series about the Nigerian (Igbo) praise & worship song "Ekwueme" as sung by Prospa Ochimana featuring Osinachi Nwachukwu.

Part II of this pancocojams series showcases the official YouTube video Part II also provides information about the custom that I call "nation signing in" to discussion threads of certain YouTube music videos. Examples of that custom from the discussion thread for the official video for "Ekwueme" are included in this post along with other comments. The roll call of nations that these commenters represent documents the global reach of contemporary African music.

Click https://pancocojams.blogspot.com/2019/04/prospa-ochimana-featuring-osinachi.html for Part I of this pancocojams series. Part I showcases the official video of "Ekwueme". The Igbo and English original lyrics for this song and those lyrics' English translations also included in this post.

The content of this post is presented for religious, cultural, and aesthetic purposes.

Thanks to Prospa Ochimana and Osinachi Nwachukwu and all others who are associated with this song and its official video. Thanks to all those who are quoted in this post and thanks to the publisher of this video on YouTube.

THE CUSTOM OF "NATION SIGNING IN" ON DISCUSSION THREADS FOR CERTAIN YOUTUBE MUSIC VIDEOS
"Nation signing in" (nsi) occurs when a person writes his or her nation's name, country code top-level domain [initials], country telephone code (iso) etc. in a discussion thread for a YouTube music video with or without any other text or emojis (small digital images or icons).

Commenters who sign in their nation's name (and/or other group identifiers) may also implicitly or explicitly expect or demand that other commenters from that nation or other affiliation follow his or her lead and also sign in and represent* that nation on that discussion thread. In addition, or separately, a commenter may ask or expect that people from other nations "rep" ("represent') their nation by writing a response to that comment. Much less often, instead of their nation, I've found comments from people representing their ethnic group (such as Luo), city/state* (such as Burbank, California), region (such as the Caribbean), or continent (such as "Europe").

I've noticed this custom in the discussion threads of a number of popular contemporary non-religious YouTube music videos from West Africa, South Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa. I'm currently testing my theory that this custom is also found in the discussion threads of popular contemporary religious YouTube videos from at least two of African regions (West Africa and South Africa). By contemporary, I mean within the last 10 years. By popular, I mean videos with viewer hits totally multiple millions.

In testing this theory, I'm somewhat randomly selecting a few YouTube contemporary religious music videos from South Africa and from Nigeria that have multiple million hits. After watching the videos, I'm "reading" (mostly scanning) the discussion threads of those videos to see if I find any nation signing comments. Based on my very limited informal research which is still ongoing, it appears to me that the custom of writing "nation signing in" may also be a common feature on large discussion threads of contemporary non-religious African (YouTube) music videos from West Africa, South Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa (as well as collaborations between singers from different regions of Africa and elsewhere.)

It also appears that nation signing in comments are also a common feature on large discussion threads for contemporary religious (YouTube) music videos in West Africa and South Africa (as well as combinations of those two regions' singers. This custom may also be found in other YouTube discussion threads of other African music from other regions and/or YouTube discussion threads for non-African music. Stay tuned. Next I'm going to check out contemporary Caribbean music to see if there are any nation signing in comments on any of those YouTube discussion threads.

It appears to me that one difference between religious and non-religious signing in comments on YouTube discussion threads for African music videos, is that some commenters include testimonies (religious statements about their experience/s with God and/or how this song blesses them) with their religious nsi comments.

Additional pancocojams posts that feature examples of nation signing in comments from Africa (non-religious examples from West Africa, South Africa, East Africa, and Central Africa and religious examples from West Africa and South Africa) will periodically be published in this blog as continuing pancocojams series. Examples of nation signing in comments from the discussion threads for non-religious contemporary African music videos can be accessed under the tag "nation signing in comments". Subsequent pancocojams posts about nation signing in comments from contemporary religious African music videos can be accessed under the tag "religious nation signing in comments."

          Cutting off Puerto Rico's Medicaid is not a 'fiscal cliff.' It will push people off a cliff—to die      Comment   Translate Page      

After Hurricane Maria devastated Puerto Rico in September of 2017, we saw photos like the one above, of funerals across the island. The disaster death toll post-Maria was the highest in modern U.S. history. 

What is distressing, and almost unfathomable, is the fact that we are heading toward an even higher death toll—and this one will be completely man-made, and preventable

I want us to start talking, hollering, and pressuring the Senate about the dire consequences facing our fellow citizens in Puerto Rico—now.

Not at the last minute.

Not after the damage has already been done.

More than 1 million Puerto Ricans are already seeing cuts to food stamp benefits. Democrats’ fight being waged with Trump and McConnell over disaster aid funding has not succeeded.

I’ve read articles with headlines that talk of the “Medicaid fiscal cliff” for Puerto Rico—which don’t convey the severity of the disaster in the making. There are going to be a lot of Puerto Ricans who will be doomed to die if they lose both medical treatment and the life-sustaining drugs they need.

That “fiscal cliff” is the cutoff of additional money that increased coverage on the island until September 2019.  When the money goes, at least 900,000 people will lose coverage.

This is not simply a matter of “Oh well, they will have to flee the island and move to the mainland.”

It is not just “Oh well, they should become a state,” as if the status issue is going to be resolved any time soon.

And though some Democratic presidential candidates have mentioned Puerto Rico, or talked of future plans, those words don’t translate into medicine and treatment, while Trump continues to use PR as a punching bag to rile up his base.

What is going to happen will kill more people than Hurricane Maria did—unless we begin to take action NOW.
