We’ll be tweeting all the key info and if you’re following along online you can ask us questions and most importantly, let us know how you’re getting on and keep each other motivated using the #CILIPReval hashtag.

 

To ensure the session runs smoothly please do the following prior to the session:

How to Find the Best Android App for Mileage Tracking?

Despite your excellent accounting and bookkeeping skills, you may find it intimidating to track the business mileage when driving your car. This is where you need an efficient mile tracking app that can manage your mileage logs and save you from the IRS audit trap. An app can automatically track the miles covered for business purposes. When looking for a mile app, there are many factors that you should consider for making the right selection.They include:Customization of Business Mileage Rates:In the USA, the IRS or Internal Revenue Service issues the standard mileage rates that are used for calculation of business deduction of a vehicle used for business purposes. When these rates are used for deduction, you can’t include the vehicle-related expenses like repairs, maintenance, and registration charges in the calculation. Hence, many businesses use their own business mileage rates. To manage the deductions according to these rates, you need a mile app that allows customizable rates for mileage tracking.The Calculation of Mileage:The mileage tracking apps use GPS or Global Positioning Satellite system for tracking your exact location and distance travelled. An accurate app will use GPS coordinates to log this distance covered for the business trips in a precise manner. The app will log this complete data and compute the total miles traveled by you. This distance will be multiplied by the mileage rate for tax deductions or for employee reimbursement. When looking for a mile app, prefer an automatic tracking system to minimize the hassles.Automatic Triggers:There are some advanced Android-based apps that use automated triggers to start and stop the logging of distance traveled during business trips. If there is a Bluetooth device in your vehicle, your Android device will automatically start tracking the mileage whenever this device is paired to the vehicle’s Bluetooth. Also, these apps allow mileage tracking through the current charging state of your device. For instance, if your Android device is plugged into the vehicle’s charger, the app will start tracking the miles automatically. They reduce inaccuracies in the system.Accurate Log Management:An app can effectively track the business mileage and record this data at a centralized portal. Now, it is essential to manage this data for claiming deductions. Here, you need a system that allows exporting of this data to a spreadsheet. This sheet should be prepared in accordance with the specifications of employer or IRS. If you are a business owner, you must prefer an app with a rich account management system. An advanced app can synchronize the varied travel logs to manage this data on the web and prepares rich reports in a prescribed format.These are the factors to keep in mind when looking for a mile app to claim tax deductions.See More

          Hidup Bersama Ilahi   
Sumber: http://puteraazhari.blogspot.com/

Bening hati melihat kebesaran Allah Taala, melihat ciptaan kejadian makhluk yang teramat unik. Alam terbentang luas tanpa hadir rasa pertelingkahan pada sebuah sunnatullah, semua akur pada takdir dengan memberi ikrar taat setia. Setiap saat dan detik memperagakan aksi tersendiri, seolah-olah telah lama menekuni sebuah skrip dan dialog drama, tiada rasa kaku dan kekok padanya tika beraksi di hadapan layar dunia, cukup indah.

Alangkah indahnya jika setiap saat dalam hidup kita dapat dilalui dengan perasaan bahawa diri ini, sering diperhatikan. Melindungi diri daripada melakukan kesilapan yang kelak akan dipertanggungjawabkan di hadapan Tuhan. Utaian manik luhurnya akhlak menghiasi diri seperti bintang-bintang menghiasi cakerawala. Namun, mesti lebih indah, kalau setiap masa dan ketika kita diperhatikan dan dapat memerhatikan Allah Taala.

Terlalu banyak cabaran dalam hidup ini. Kadang-kadang tanpa kita sedari, kita lupa dan alpa, bahawa Allah Taala juga yang sebenarnya memberikan halangan itu, supaya kita check balik, dan perbaiki kelemahan diri. Kita bersetuju, setiap apa yang berlaku ada hikmahnya. Menekuni hikmah, serta bersedia belajar sesuatu selepas itu, kewajaran yang tiada taranya. Kita bersedia untuk berubah dan mengubah keadaan. Tidak akan berlaku buat kali seterusnya.

Kadang-kadang Allah Taala patahkan hati kita untuk selamatkan jiwa kita. Allah Taala patahkan hati kita untuk membuatkan hati kita bersemangat. Allah Taala memberi kita sakit supaya kita menjadi kuat. Allah Taala memberi kita kegagalan untuk membuatkn kita rasa rendah diri. Allah Taala menghantar penyakit pula, adalah supaya kita boleh belajar menghargai segala nikmat yang diberi oleh-Nya.

Anda sedang berjual di sebuah gerai di Pasar Tani. Ramai orang melintas gerai anda, menoleh dan terus berlalu tanpa membelek, apatah lagi membeli. Tiba-tiba datang seorang ke gerai anda dan dia berkata;

“saya tak suka barang awak sebab cara awak susun memeningkan saya”

Anda mungkin terkelat-kelat muka, tetapi anda faham komen tersebut, dan boleh mengambilnya sebagai pengajaran dan cabaran untuk meningkat maju.

Tetapi bagaimana kalau ketika anda sibuk melayan pelanggan. Tiba-tiba datang seseorang ke gerai anda dan terus berkata;

“saya tak suka barang-barang awak”

Kemudian dia terus pergi meninggalkan anda terkulat-kulat keseorangan. Apakah yang akan terjadi kepada diri anda ketika itu? Rasa ingin berubah kerana orang tidak suka mungkin tidak kesampaian, kerana diri tidak pernah tahu, dan mengerti di manakah kelemahan yang dimaksudkan tadi.

Walau dalam keadaan apa sekalipun, jangan biasakan diri untuk mematikan idea orang lain tanpa memberi alternatif kepada idea tersebut. Beradabkan lebih baik, dan tidak punya masalah.

Bagaimana dengan seorang insan yang bekerja sepanjang hari, hingga hampir tiada kerja yang perlu dilakukan. Oleh kerana tidak suka membuang masa, beliau lebih gemar habiskan masa dengan melayari internet. Hanya menunggu telefon berdering dan satu, dua pekerjaan yang dilakukan setiap hari. Sekiranya ada tugasan pasti akan dibereskan sebaik mungkin.

Setiap kali ada kursus dan sebagainya, beliau tidak pernah claim perjalanan, overtime dan sebagainya. Ini adalah untuk recharge semula dengan apa yang dipakainya semasa di pejabat. Beliau cuba untuk tidak menggunakan phone office, sebaliknya .Namun hati manusia sering berbolak-balik, sesekali terbabas juga gunakan telefon office untuk menelefon ke pejabat kerajaan atas tujuan peribadi.

Itulah, dalam beringat pun kadang-kadang memang terbabas atau ‘membabaskan’ diri. Ada juga terfikir untuk kerja sendiri supaya hasil yang diperolehi adalah bersih dan lumayan. Terbabas dalam konteks menjaga kepentingan bersama, tidak menjadi suatu masalah, tapi andai untuk menjaga kepentingan peribadi, kena-kena beringat sedikit. Kalau baik, tidak mengapa, namun kita sering mengundang hal sebaliknya.

Namun ingat, sekali anda terbabas leka melakukan maksiat, CCTV Allah Taala tidak pernah sirna atau leka seperti anda dari terus memerhati gelagat buruk anda. Matlamat menghalalkan cara, bukan itu caranya. Awas!

          Chinanitrogengenerator the bulk of change is zero the capital antecedent   
At present, there are two capital requirements for the acquirement of air purifiers, the aboriginal is the a lot of accepted anti-fog haze, the added is the anew adapted ancestors of formaldehyde as the Nitrogen Generator of abounding aerial amoebic (VOC). Of course, the air bactericide can break the botheration is not alone the two, but these two needs is absolutely the calm market, the a lot of boilerplate air bactericide demand, actuality to these two archetypal needs, for example, to explain why the air The bactericide is an able band-aid for advancement calm air quality.

The aboriginal is fog haze. The online analysis of air purifiers is varied, but it is still not a problem, for those who do not accept to buy air purifiers, it is still difficult to explain to them why air purifiers can actualize one in their home Can bear the brume of the haven. It is harder to explain why the air bactericide is not boring filtered once, and the charge to consistently broadcast the calm air. There is aswell an insurmountable mindset that we charge "fresh" air, and in actuality we charge apple-pie air afterwards boundless air.

Simple to accept that a bactericide can be absent into a aperture abeyant in the air, the aperture inhaled the aforementioned bulk of calm air complete contaminants, alarming out the complete cleanliness of the CADR bulk afterwards algae [1]. As apparent in the bulk below, the average box draws attenuated air from beneath and assault apple-pie air to the top. In the complete test, the CADR is aswell abstinent in a accepted apprehension environment, the connected aperture of the purifier, and connected almanac of the absorption of pollutants in the analysis chamber, and use this ambit to fit the bulk of the ideal archetypal to infer this ablution The agnate CADR value.

In the case of astringent haze, the capital antecedent of calm chapped bulk is infiltrated by the outside, and the calm abuse antecedent apparent as No. 4 is altered from room, which is difficult to quantify and is not acceptable for abstract calculation. Nitrogen Generation System it is anon alone here. The activating calm declared aloft becomes the bulk at which the particles penetrate, according to the sum of the ante of sedimentation, bactericide purification, and accustomed acquittal of the three ablution pathways.

For absolutely possibly the a lot of part, agent systems are usually implemented in any operation that will absorb relocating some affair from 1 atom to accession in a ceaseless abiding stream. This agency food managed by agent systems may ambit from some affair as ample as cars in accumulation lines, to an account as ablaze as bare artificial containers and sticker labels.

          Commentaires sur Lenovo Yoga 720-15IKB, ultrabook 15" tablette Quad i7 GTX 1050 SSD à 1450€ par Antoine   
Un billet pour dire ma satisfaction sur le Lenovo Yoga 720 15″ (80X7004WFR). Contre toute attente, il m’a été livré dans une belle boîte avec un stylet active pen pro 2 ! Le tout prêt à l’emploi : Création graphique impeccable avec Krita, Médibang Paint Pro, Gimp, grace au stylet 4096 niveaux de pression (mais sans prise en charge de l’inclinaison du stylet à la différence du pencil d’Apple). Excellent aussi dans la création d’images de synthèse sous Blender grâce à sa carte graphique NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 avec 4Go dédiés. Le souffle du ventilateur n’est pas spécialement gênant car le niveau sonore reste faible. Idem en matière de musique assistée par ordinateur : Fait très bien tourner Cubase 7.5 et le synthétiseur virtuel UVI Falcon : Le disque SSD de 512Go est ultra rapide pour les banques de sons. Les hauts parleurs produisent un son clair et agréable. L’écran FHD 1920 x 1080 me parait suffisant, mais un peu faible en luminosité pour une utilisation en extérieur. L’autonomie est très correcte. Son look et sa robustesse au rendez-vous. Bref ! Un superbe ordinateur / tablette tout terrain pour un prix très correct (1512 euros pour la fête de père).

Pour ceux qui se poseraient des questions : j'ai acheté quasiment la même référence (i7 à la place du i5) il y a deux semaine en promo sans os sur ldlc (929E avec un code promo) : -Il y a un port m2/sata fonctionnel dedans (il manquait seulement la vis pour moi mais j'en avais une en reserve) même si ce n'est pas indiqué clairement sur la fiche du fabriquant. -L’écran est très lumineux si poussé au maximum et les angles de vision sont bons pour du LED (moi j'ai une legere fuite de lumiere visible sur fond noir en bas à gauche mais pas trop genante). -Les températures sont bonnes en charge (environ 53/54°C max pour le proc). Il peut par contre devenir assez bruyant à pleine charge en jeu. -le chassis ne chauffe pas, le clavier et le touchpad sont agréables. -attention : seul l'exterieur de l'ecran est en aluminium, le reste est en plastique. -les performances générales sont très bonnes (bureautique/jeux) et le wifi est particulièrement bon ! -l'autonomie n’excède pas 2h30/3h sur le web en baissant la luminosité (mais 17''/3kg, ce n'est pas vraiment un ultra portable) donc il vaut mieux avoir une prise à côté. -La sortie casque est de bonne qualité, les enceintes internes sont juste correctes : on distingue très bien les voix mais les basses sont absentes. remarque : il est possible de désactiver le rétroéclairage rouge pour obtenir un look plus ordinaire.

Coucou, j'avais mis ma nouvelle demande d'identification à la suite de la précédente dans le même message, mais peut être avez vous pensé qu'il s'agissait d'une réponse seulement et c'est pourquoi vous ne m'avez pas répondu. Je vais faire comme cact88 un post unique pour toutes mes identifications vu que je vais tout étiqueter au fur et à mesure :)

Enfin voici du coup un copier coller de ma dernière demande :)

Identifications suite, je vais rester sur ce post pour ne pas polluer le forum trop souvent et pour garder une trace de vos réponses :)

Aujourd'hui, journée spéciale Haworthia encore (j'adooooooooore), en voici 4 mais qui sont en fait 3 identifications il me semble :

Haworthia translucens ?


La coloc d'Harworthias ! Il me semble que 2 d'entre eux sont les même (fasciata ?), et le troisième celui qui est en bas en fleur (oui on ne voit que la tige mais promis je vous montre bientôt la fleur, la photo est dans mon autre) a l'air différent, des idées pour son petit nom ?


Vue de plus près. Les 2 qui se ressemblent ont leurs rayures de taille légèrement différente, mais j'ai quand même l'impression que ce sont les même (fasciata ?), je me trompe ? Un petit nom ?


Le substrat est le même que pour la coloc d'Haworthia et Gasteria publiée plus haut, donc trop riche. Il s'agit d'une terre spéciale cactée, pot bien sûr percé, et fond garni des gravier sur au moins 2cm. Même condition géographique, à Nîmes, dans la cour lumineuse mais sans soleil direct. Je précise car un certain nombre de mes plantes se trouve à l'intérieur derrière la vitre. Il s'agit d'une cour commune avec pas mal d'enfants alors j'évite d'y mettre certaines plantes fragiles, onéreuses ou trop piquantes hi hi !

Merci par avance si vous connaissez les petits noms de ces haworthias.

Elles ont pris l'orage d'ailleurs hier soir, du coup ce matin je me suis levée tôt pour checker que tout allait bien. C'est tout bon, pas d'eau stagnante et la pluie a lavé les caca de pigeons ! (Le principal problème de cette cour ...:X )

Two adults and a youth from the central Nunavut community of Whale Cove continue to recover from injuries they received June 29 from an “accidental discharge” of a high-powered rifle by a five-year-old child. This latest firearms incident comes a little more than two weeks after a boy, 11, in Arviat was injured after a firearms incident involving a 14-year-old. Although the RCMP said the injuries of the three in Whale Cove were relatively minor, “the possibility to cause grievous bodily harm

          Here's who is driving Austin's plan to expand convention center — and what they want   
The Visitor Impact Task Force was charged with finding the best use for an increase in hotel occupancy taxes that would go toward paying for a substantial expansion of the Austin Convention Center. Questions have arisen from outside observers and an Austin City Councilwoman regarding the makeup of the task force. Here are some key points from the task force recommendations — plus a list of task force members.

          Entering Contest of Champions: Punisher 2099   

Bullets and blades blast and slice across Battlerealm as Jake Gallows, the Punisher of 2099, brute forces his way into “Marvel Contest of Champions” as the game’s 100th character.

We talked to Kabam Art Director Gabriel Frizzera and Character Designer Simon Cameron about what makes this particular Punisher tick like a time bomb.

Marvel.com: I gotta ask, how much effort does it take for The Collector to reach through the past and future to snatch up a specimen?

Gabriel Frizzera: The Punisher 2099 was captured in the original batch of Champions for The Contest. But it wasn’t necessary for Collector to reach through time, since Jake Gallows had travelled back to the 21st century to execute Carnage, as part of an initiative by the future Hydra regime to punish criminals in different timelines. They’re very proactive at the Secret Empire— they won’t let small things like the space-time continuum get in the way of their punishment!

Marvel.com: And what makes Jake Gallows so special that he gets to fight it out in The Contest?

Gabriel Frizzera: Gallows was one of the characters Marvel allowed us to redesign for the CONTEST OF CHAMPIONS comic book, and appeared briefly in the last issue—before being quickly dispatched by Frank Castle. We had plans to put him in the game for a while, and when the opportunity to do a Secret Empire tie-in came about, we decided to have him as the villain. Turns out he’s also our 100th playable character, so it worked out great that he’s one of our original designs!

Marvel.com: 100 characters is a super cool milestone, and outside of Angela, this may be my favorite looking combatant in “Contest of Champions.” Seriously, this Punisher looks absolutely awesome! What can you tell us about his design?

Gabriel Frizzera: We are fond of his ‘90s garish outfit and gadgets, but we wanted to push him to look more like a “futuristic shock-police on steroids.” The central piece of the design is the chest skull made of knives and guns—which teleport into his hands; not a second to spare in the future. His whole arsenal is white to contrast with the black and red suit, but also to speak to the nature of 2099’s technology: all weapons would be freshly formed and reconfigured on the spot by nanotechnology. His original concept had way more weapons—like mag-blades on his arms and an electro-baton—and a tactical helmet, which ended up having to be cut for memory reasons. But we kept his bad-ass disintegrating gun and “Grenazers”!

Marvel.com: Aside from his bad ass new look, what sets him apart from Frank Castle?

Gabriel Frizzera: We joke in the office that Jake Gallows makes Frank Castle look like a soft-hearted hippie! We had a lot of fun writing the contrast between the two, the same way other writers love to contrast Frank Castle among more “straight” heroes like Captain America. In the story, when placed between Jake Gallows’ and Steve Rogers’ radically different views of justice, Frank Castle is forced to admit he might be a bit closer to Cap than the fanatic Punisher 2099. It was fun for me to write dialogue where Gallows calls Castle a “half-measure,” the same way Castle called Matt Murdock [“Marvel’s Daredevil” on Netflix]. That shows how far Punisher 2099 has strayed into villainous territory.

Marvel.com: Tell me a little about Punisher 2099’s abilities…

Simon Cameron: Punisher 2099 gets much of his strength from his Nano-Tech, which is powered by the Nano-Tech Battery. This charge builds over time, and his Special 1 gives him an Overcharge Passive effect, giving him additional Nano-Tech charge for a few seconds. This charge is spent by a number of automatically triggered effects—things like: Triggering a Heal Block on an Opponent when they trigger a Regeneration Buff, Draining the Charge to Regenerate Punisher 2099 if his Health drops below a threshold, or adding a Stun effect to his Heavy Attack. He also enters an Overdrive mode if his Charge reaches 100%. This drains his Charge over time, but grants him additional Attack, and reduces the amount of Power his Opponent gains when they’re struck by Punisher’s attacks.

Marvel.com: And what’s Retribution 2099 all about?

Simon Cameron: Retribution 2099 is Punisher’s Signature Ability. It lets him start the fight with his Nano-Tech Battery partially charged; it also adds a new automatically triggered effect to spend his Nano-Tech Charge on. This ability triggers when his opponent hits full power, draining a small amount of it, and power locking them for a couple seconds. It’s a little like a Special 3 get out of jail free card.

Marvel.com: And when can we hope to bring the Punisher’s weapon mastery to bear on the bad guys?

Simon Cameron: Punisher 2099 opens fire on The Contest June 29!

Stay tuned to Marvel.com and @MarvelGames on Twitter for more “Marvel Contest of Champions” news and interviews!

          BEM : les raisons d’un bon classement à Tizi Ouzou   
Encore une fois, la wilaya de Tizi Ouzou s’impose en première position dans le classement des élèves admis à l’examen du BEM.  Ainsi, sur les 13 313 candidats inscrits, 8 878 élèves ont décroché le fameux sésame d’accès au lycée, soit un taux de réussite de 67, 02%. Ce n’est pas la première fois que la wilaya de Tizi Ouzou obtient la première place au BEM. Les raisons de cette consécration sont multiples. Il s’agit, selon Mohamed Tachabount, chargé à la communication au niveau de la direction de l’éducation, du fruit d’un travail collectif assuré aussi bien par les enseignants, l’administration et les travailleurs du secteur de l’éducation qui prennent en charge les préoccupations des élèves. Notre interlocuteur nous a évoqué également l’accompagnement permanent des parents qui veillent sur la scolarité de leurs enfants. «Il y a aussi la précieuse contribution des parents dans cette réussite», nous a-t-il précisé. L’autre raison ayant fait que Tizi Ouzou soit en tête du peloton dans l’examen de fin du cycle moyen est liée à plusieurs autres facteurs comme les cours de soutien dispensés aux élèves. «Il y a des parents d’élèves qui payent des enseignants pour assurer des cours de soutien à leurs enfants, à domicile. C’est une formule très répondue, notamment dans le chef-lieu et dans les grandes villes de la wilaya», nous a expliqué un père de famille qui ajoute que même dans les villages, il y a des initiatives du mouvement associatif dans le sens d’assurer des cours de soutien aux élèves des classes d’examen. «Dans certains villages, c’est le comité ou bien des associations qui assurent des cours aux candidats. Les enseignants interviennent généralement bénévolement pour aider les élèves à bien se préparer pour les examens», a souligné un citoyen de Boghni, au sud de la wilaya de Tizi Ouzou. Par ailleurs, il y a aussi le facteur motivation qui est pour beaucoup dans la réussite des potaches. «Chaque année, nous organisons une réception pour honorer les lauréats des examens scolaires. Cela stimule généralement les autres élèves à faire des efforts afin d’être récompensés. C’est une sorte de motivation qui incite les enfants à travailler davantage», nous dira un animateur associatif qui estime aussi que «l’attitude des parents est fondamentale dans la réussite scolaire des enfants. Leur rôle intervient aussi de manière à créer un climat propice pour que l’élève puisse travailler dans le calme et dans de bonnes conditions à la maison». Il est utile de rappeler, par ailleurs, que la wilaya de Tizi Ouzou arrive, depuis quelques années, toujours en première position même dans le classement des résultats du baccalauréat.
          Football : L’équipe de de Palestine ne fera pas de stage en Algérie   
L’équipe de football Palestine n’effectuera pas de stage en Algérie, comme c’était prévu dans le programme de cette sélection. Les dirigeants de la Fédération palestinienne de football avaient sollicité leurs homologues algériens pour un stage en Algérie. La Fédération algérienne de football (FAF) et le ministère de la Jeunesse et des Sports (DJS) avaient donné leur accord, selon une source palestinienne, et il ne manquait que le feu vert du ministère des Affaires étrangères. Les Palestiniens l’ont longuement attendu avant de déchanter. La sélection que dirige notre compatriote Noureddine Ould Ali devait être dans nos murs le 1er juillet (demain). Il n’y a pas eu de réponse du côté du plateau des Annassers. Déçus, les Palestiniens ont décidé, la mort dans l’âme, de chercher un autre lieu de regroupement pour leur sélection. Il y a quelques semaines, le Maroc avait accueilli avec faste l’équipe nationale pour un regroupement dans le royaume avec une prise en charge totale de son séjour. Pourquoi l’Algérie n’a pas fait de même ? Y a-t-il un problème ? Autant de questions auxquelles doivent répondre les parties concernées par ce dossier. L’occupant israélien ne manquera pas d’exploiter cette affaire pour monter l’opinion palestinienne contre l’Algérie.

          Orphans Court papers pertaining to land in Oxford Twp. Adams County   
To the Orphans Court of the County of Adams and State of Pennsylvania

The petition of Annie E. BROWN, a resident of the Township of Oxford, County of Adams, Pennsylvania, respectfully represents.

That your petitioner is the owner in fee of a tract of land situate in Oxford Township, Adams County, adjoining lands of Jonas RINEHART, the New Chester Road, widow WOLF, Conewago Creek and Aaron BROWN containing twenty six (26) acres and one hundred and nineteen (119) Perches more or less, with improvements.

That your petitioner acquired the title to said premises by deed from Anna M. BROWN dated April 7th 1915, which said deed was duly recorded in the office for Recording Deeds in and for the County of Adams in Deed Book 75, page 276.

The the said Anna M. BROWN acquired the title to this premises by deed dated April 1, 1891 from Wm. Arch. McCLEAN, Assignee of Solomon BROWN and wife and said deed being made in pursuance of an order of the Court of Common Pleas of Adams County, which said deed was duly recorded in the office of Recording Deeds in and for the County of Adams in Deed Book YY page 331.

That the said Wm. Arch. McCLEAN, assignee of Solomon BROWN and wife acquired title to said premises by deed of assignment from Solomon BROWN and wife dated May 26, 1890, which said deed is recorded in the office for Recording Deeds in and for the County of Adams in deed Book QQ pages 287 and 288.

That the said Solomon BROWN acquired the title to said premises by deed dated April 2, 1874 from Josiah SHUTT and Lydia his wife, which said deed was duly recorded in the office for Recording Deeds in and for the County of Adams in Deed Book DD page 240.

That the said Josiah SHUTT acquired the title to said premises by deed dated April 2, 1874, from Solomon BROWN and Silas MILLER, agents for the Widow and heirs of Christian ZINN, which said deed was duly recorded in the office for Recording Deeds in and for the County of Adams in Deed Book DD page 85.

That said Solomon BROWN and Silas MILLER were given letters of attorney to convey real estate by the widow and all the heirs of Christian ZINN dated July 26, 1873 and recorded in the office for Recording Deeds in and for the County of Adams in Deed Book HH page 297. And said letter of attorney provides that "one third of the purchase money of said real estate after expenses of sale to remain in the tract of land in Oxford Township aforesaid, during the life of Lucy ZINN, the widow aforesaid, the interest of said one third to be paid to her annually and the principal sum at her death to the parties then legally entitled to receive the same."

That the said deed from Solomon BROWN and Silas MILLER to Josiah SHUTT and the said deed from Josiah SHUTT and wife to Solomon BROWN contained a dower charge in the following language "Subject however to the payment of forty four Dollars and fifty five cents ($44.55) yearly to Lucy ZINN widow said Christian ZINN deceased, during her natural life, the first payment to be made on the first day of April A. D. 1875. It being the interest on seven hundred and forty two Dollars and forty nine cents ($742.49) and at her death the principal sum of Seven Hundred and forty two Dollars and forty nine cents to be paid to the legal heirs and representatives of said Christian ZINN, deceased, the said sum of money to be and remain a lien on the herein granted premises until paid.

That Christian ZINN died in the month of Dec. 1872 or January 1873, letters in his estate being issued Jan. 3, 1873 and your petitioner is informed and believes that Lucy ZINN died nearly fifty years ago in and about 1879 or 1880, that the dower was $742.49 Solomon BROWN and wife borrowed on a mortgage from HOLTZ April 3, 1880 $275 which amount was sufficient to pay all the heirs except his wife and it is believed that the principal was paid as of about that date and dower was released in some way not of record. All the heirs were alive at that date except my mother Elizabeth MILLER and she left two children David MILLER and myself and I know that a guardian received the share of the dower of my brother and myself and upon arriving of age we received our shares from the guardian. At the time of the assignment of Solomon BROWN the mortgage of HOLTZ was called the first lien. That none of the deeds since that date contain any reference to said dower charge and no reference made to it in the assignment proceedings of any such indebtedness, none is presented or paid. Thus for fully forty years your petitioner believes that no demand has ever been made for the payment of interest on said dower charge by Lucy ZINN or for the principal thereof by the heirs entitle to some and no such demand has ever been made to your petitioner during her possession of the premises. That it was not until a recent proposition to buy was made to your petitioner that the discovery was made that there was no satisfaction of the said dower on record.

That the names of the heirs of Christian ZINN deceased entitled to the payment of the principal after the death of Lucy ZINN were Coletta ZINN BROWN, married to James BROWN, Elizabeth ZINN MILLER married to Silas MILLER, Maria ZINN MYERS, married to Conrad MYERS, Anna ZINN BROWN married to Solomon BROWN and Lucy ZINN HAWK, married to Edward HAWK and after dilligent search your petitioner is informed and believes that these heirs outlived their mother Lucy. ZINN and after her death were paid their shares of said dower charge and that all of them have been dead for a number of years.

That the period of twenty one years has elapsed and many more years since the principal of said dower charge became due and payable and that no payment of either principal or interest has been made within said period and no satisfaction of release of said dower charge appears of record.

Therefore your petitioner prays your Honorable Court to order and direct the Sheriff of Adams County to serve the petition on the known holders of the said dower charge, if to be found in the said county and whose residence or residences are known and in case the parties can not be found in said County then the said Sheriff shall give public notice in one newspaper published in said county once a week for four weeks successively prior to the next term after the petition as aforesaid shall have been presented, requiring said parties to appear at said Court and answer the petition to show cause why the court should not enter a decree to satisfy, extinguish and discharge the said dower charge.

And she will ever pray, etc.

signed
Annie E. Brown.

NOTE...To satisfy the above legal requirement to publish this information, notice was published in the Gettysburg Times on Dec. 2, 9, 16, and 23. Since no one came forward the Court signed off on this matter on January 27th 1930.

          Seismic Blasting Would Deafen Marine Mammals   

Seismic Blasting Would Deafen Marine Mammals

The endangered North Atlantic right whale is just one of the marine animals that seismic testing off the East Coast would harm.

The endangered North Atlantic right whale is just one of the marine animals that seismic testing off the East Coast would harm.

National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration

Imagine an underwater blast so loud that it can be heard by marine mammals that are 2,500 miles away. That’s the level of noise generated when companies fire airguns to blast the ocean floor with sound in order to find oil and gas deposits.

Such seismic testing could begin soon off the U.S. East Coast after Trump ordered federal agencies to reconsider the Obama administration’s five-year ban on offshore drilling in the Atlantic. On June 6, the National Marine Fisheries Service proposed five authorizations for companies on the hunt for oil and gas. These companies want to conduct seismic surveys of the Atlantic seabed.

The noise would have serious impacts on marine mammals like whales and dolphins, which rely heavily on sound to communicate, navigate and find prey. Flooding the ocean with noise from seismic surveys could inflict permanent hearing damage on these creatures, leaving them deaf and stranded. At the very least, seismic blasts would disrupt the animals’ behavior hundreds of thousands of times and could drive them away from vital habitats.

By granting these five proposed authorizations, the National Marine Fisheries Service would allow marine mammals to become casualties of oil and gas exploration. But it’s not too late—the service is taking public comments on these proposed authorizations until July 6. Below, you can tell the service to deny these dangerous permits, and protect whales and dolphins from seismic airgun blasting.

Take Action! Send your comment to the National Marine Fisheries Service today, and tell the agency that marine mammals deserve a fighting chance.


The following numbers demonstrate how devastating these seismic surveys would be:

240 decibels

Approximate volume of seismic airgun blasting underwater. For a little perspective, one of the loudest animals, the blue whale, makes calls louder than 180 decibels. When you go up by 10 decibels, it means a sound gets 10 times more intense. So a seismic airgun blast is 1 million times more intense than a blue whale call—powerful enough to deafen one of these massive creatures.


2,500 miles

How far seismic blasts can travel underwater—approximately the distance from New York City to Los Angeles. That means it’s possible for a whale near Florida to hear seismic surveys operating off the coast of South Carolina.


200,000 square miles

Area of the Atlantic Ocean that the proposed seismic airgun surveys would blast. The airguns discharge resounding booms at 12 to 16 second intervals, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, for months on end.


350,000

Approximate number of times in one year that whales and dolphins will be harassed by seismic blasting, according to permits drafted by the National Marine Fisheries Service. The service estimates that nearly 2,000 of the exposures will be loud enough to cause permanent hearing loss, which would severely impede the marine mammals’ ability to communicate and find food.


28

Species of marine mammals that the National Marine Fisheries Service would allow companies to harm, if the agency’s proposed authorizations are finalized. Six of these species are endangered or threatened under the Endangered Species Act, including the North Atlantic Right Whale—a critically endangered species with a population of less than 500.

We continue our partnership with OVD-Infoan NGO that monitors politically-motivated arrests in Russia. Every Friday, we bring you the latest information on freedom of assembly. 

We have collected and analysed a large number of reports of violations by Russian police officers at anti-corruption rallies held on 12 June. Now we are able to say with certainty there have been 109 violations. Police officers exceeded the permitted time for administrative detention, wrote official reports with numerous mistakes, and did not allow lawyers to visit those detained. In one of the St Petersburg police stations, a detainee contracted pneumonia after spending the night in a cold cell. This was despite the fact that he had warned the police officers he was in poor health and should not get cold. The list of violations with legal commentaries can be seen here.

This week a number of individuals requested political asylum abroad. Krasnodar artists Lusiney Dzhanyan and Aleksei Knedlyakovsky requested asylum in Sweden. The artists said that their telephones had been tapped, and in 2013 Dzhanyan was dismissed from Krasnodar University of Culture for supporting Pussy Riot and exhibiting in a gallery owned by Marat Gelman. But it’s not only those who create modern art who can fall victim to persecution. Children’s drawings in chalk can also evoke the dissatisfaction of the authorities. Mikhail Petrov, a martial arts trainer from Pskov, has left Russia because he feared persecution by the authorities. It is thought the authorities’ interest in the trainer was related to the fact that he and his students had drawn anti-military drawings on the walls of buildings belonging to a military air assault division. He has requested political asylum in Estonia. 

Supporters of Alexei Navalny continue to be persecuted. In the town of Cherepovets, writer and journalist Elena Kolyadina was dismissed by the newspaper Golos Cherepovtsa for giving a lecture to staff of Navalny’s local election campaign office. In the Siberian city of Barnaul, the coordinator of the campaign office was injured with a knife, while earlier someone set fire to one of the office’s windows. In Vladimir, the local branch of the Russian Television and Radio Broadcasting Network asked its chief engineer to resign because he had headed Navalny’s local campaign office. Meanwhile, in Rostov-on-Don a car belonging to the head of Navalny’s office was covered with paint and its tyres were punctured.

The Investigative Committee completed its investigation into one more defendant in the “26 March case”. Dmitry Krepkin is charged with using force against a police officer during the anti-corruption protest in Moscow. Krepkin maintains his innocence. Moreover, he has said that he was himself assaulted at the time of his detention at the 26 March protest. Doctors at the emergency medical centre recorded bruising all over his body. He had been struck at least six times.   

The pre-trial detention of mathematician Dmitry Bogatov was extended until 31 August. Bogatov has been charged with incitement to riot on the grounds that he had posted appeals on the SysAdmins.ru forum to go out on to Red Square on 2 April 2017 under the pseudonym of “Airat Bashirov”. The appeals were sent from Bogatov’s IP address. However, since Bogatov operates a Tor exit node, any user could have posted the materials using his IP.

          Operator of Illegal Bitcoin Exchange Coin.mx Sentenced to Prison   
coinmx.jpg

Anthony Murgio, 33, of Tampa, Florida, has been sentenced to five and a half years in prison for running a Bitcoin exchange connected to hackers. The exchange was used to launder more than $10 million worth of funds, authorities reported.

Both Murgio and Yuri Lebedev, 39, of St. John’s, Florida, operated Coin.mx through a fraudulent company called “Collectables Club.” According to the U.S. Attorney’s Office for the Southern District of New York, the illegal Bitcoin exchange used the firm’s misleading name to open financial accounts at banks pretending to be a “members-only association of individuals who discussed, bought, and sold collectible items and memorabilia.” Murgio and Lebedev, along with other co-conspirators, violated bank and credit card company rules and regulations by “deliberately misidentifying and miscoding Coin.mx customers’ credit and debit card transactions.”

“Lies conceived and deployed by Murgio permeated every aspect of Coin.mx’s operation, including its use of front companies, like Collectables Club and Currency Enthusiasts, to try to conceal the illicit nature of the operation,” the Department of Justice stated in its sentencing submission.

On January 9, Murgio pled guilty to three counts regarding operating Coin.mx, which processed over $10 million worth of illegal Bitcoin transactions. Murgio ran the Bitcoin exchange between October 2013 and July 2015 for Gery Shalon, 33, an Israeli citizen who was responsible for hacking at least nine companies, including JPMorgan Chase, E-Trade Financial Corporation and Dow Jones. Coin.mx sold bitcoins that came from illegal online transactions, such as victim payments to ransomware attackers who sought to launder the cryptocurrencies clean.

“I screwed up badly and made serious mistakes and misjudgments,” Murgio said, showing remorse, to U.S. District Judge Alison J. Nathan at his sentencing.

Shalon, along with Ziv Orenstein, 42, compromised data on approximately 76 million household customers and 7 million businesses by hacking the nine companies. U.S. officials described their operation as a “diversified criminal conglomerate” responsible for the largest theft of valuable information from a U.S. bank. The compromised data included the names of customers, along with email addresses and phone numbers. Authorities collected evidence stating that Murgio exchanged cash for the bitcoins of Shalon’s criminal gang. Israeli police arrested Shalon and Orenstein in July 2015, and they were extradited to the United States in June 2016. Both are facing serious charges, including aggravated identity theft, wire fraud and money laundering.

“Mr. Murgio led an effort based on ambition and greed,” and constructed on a “pyramid of lies,” Judge Nathan said during the sentencing hearing at the Manhattan federal court.

On March 17, a Manhattan jury found Lebedev and his co-conspirator Trevon Gross, 52, of New Jersey, guilty of charges connected to a bribery scheme in an attempt to hide the illegal activities of Coin.mx from financial institutes and regulators. Both of the defendants are facing a maximum sentence of 30 years in prison. Judge Nathan scheduled the sentencing hearing of Lebedev and Gross for July 20, 2017.

Murgio’s father, Michael Murgio, 66, was also involved in the Coin.mx case. In October, the father plead guilty to “making a false statement to the National Credit Union Administration on behalf of his son.” By making a plea deal, Michael Murgio managed to avoid additional charges in the case, including “conspiracy to make corrupt payments with intent to influence an officer of a financial institution and making corrupt payments.” Judge Nathan sentenced the elder Murgio to one year of probation along with a $12,000 fine.

The FBI arrested both Lebedev and Murgio on July 23, 2015, for “running an unlicensed bitcoin exchange with the goal of helping individuals launder money.”

Despite the prosecution’s request for 10 to 12 years and seven months behind bars, the Manhattan federal court sentenced Murgio to five and a half years in prison. According to Reuters, Judge Nathan considered Murgio’s “generosity to friends and support to his family” and imposed a prison sentence half as long as the prosecutor recommended.

Judge Nathan has scheduled a hearing on September 1 to decide on the amount of fines, forfeiture and restitution Murgio has to pay to the state. The operator of the illegal Bitcoin exchange remains free on bail.

          How a Bitcoin Whitehat Hacker Helped the FBI Catch a Murderer   
whitehat (1).jpg

An ethical hacker breached the database of a phony darknet website offering hitman services and leaked the data. The information from the data dump helped the FBI in their investigation of a man who murdered his wife.

In November 2016, Stephen Carl Allwine, 47, of Cottage Grove, Minnesota, killed his wife in “one of the most bizarre cases ever seen,” police officers reported. The husband tried to mask the murder as a suicide, including putting a 9 mm pistol next to Amy Allwine’s elbow. However, detectives arriving on the scene identified the case as murder and collected evidence — mostly electronic devices, such as computers — belonging to Mr. Allwine. Later on, in January, investigators arrested and charged Mr. Allwine with second-degree murder based on the forensic evaluation of the confiscated electronic equipment.

In May 2016, a hacker called “bRpsd” breached the database of a controversial hitman service offered on a darknet website. The service, “Besa Mafia,” offered a link between customers and hitmen, who could register on the site anonymously. The price for a murder ranged between $5,000 and $200,000, but clients seeking to avoid fatalities could also hire a contractor to beat up a victim for $500 or set somebody’s car on fire for $1,000.

The hacker uploaded the data dump to a public internet website. The leaked files contained user accounts, email addresses, personal messages between the Besa Mafia admin and its customers, “hit” orders and a folder named “victims,” providing additional information on the targets.

The breach highlighted the fake nature of the website, which operated only to collect money from the customers. Chris Monteiro, an independent researcher who also hacked into the site, stated the owner or owners of Besa Mafia had made at least 50 bitcoins ($127,500 based on the current value of the cryptocurrency) from the scam operation.

According to a message posted by a Besa Mafia administrator and uncovered in the dump, “[T]his website is to scam criminals of their money. We report them for 2 reasons: to stop murder, this is moral and right; to avoid being charged with conspiracy to murder or association to murder, if we get caught.”

The leak of the Besa Mafia database helped the police investigating the murder of Mrs. Allwine. As the officers analyzed her husband’s devices, they discovered the suspect had accessed the dark web as early as 2014. Furthermore, investigators identified the pseudonym Mr. Allwine used on the darknet, “dogdaygod,” which was also linked to his email, “dogdaygod@hmamail.com,” in some cases. Detectives found bitcoin addresses in the conversations between Besa Mafia and Mr. Allwine, which linked the husband directly to the “dogdaygod” pseudonym, providing authorities with necessary evidence for the case.

Eventually, law enforcement agents analyzed the data dump bRpsd leaked and discovered Mr. Allwine’s email in the list. In addition, investigators found messages between the suspect and the Besa Mafia admin. According to a criminal complaint, Mr. Allwine paid between $10,000 to $15,000 to the supposed hitman service to kill his wife. The complaint detailed how Mr. Allwine had decided to have the hitman shoot Mrs. Allwine at close range and burn down the house afterward.

However, once the funds were transferred, the Besa Mafia communicator told Mr. Allwine that “local police [have] stopped the hitman [from] driving a stolen vehicle and taken [him] to jail prior to the hit,” thus rendering him unable to complete his “service.” The complaint cited Sergeant McAlister who reported that during that time, “no one was apprehended in Minnesota and western Wisconsin in a stolen vehicle and possession of a gun.”

It is likely that the ethical hacker’s data breach had an impact on Mr. Allwine’s case; on March 24, 2017, the Washington County District Court charged him with first-degree murder. In addition, officers have gathered more evidence in the case — a drug called scopolamine was discovered at 45 times higher than the recommended level in Mrs. Allwine’s body. Investigators subsequently discovered that her husband had also ordered the substance on the dark web.

          Decent Launches Global Media Distribution Platform   
Decent Launch

Free and open communication has long been an essential component of a successful democracy. Unfortunately, money, power and influence over time have stifled today’s media environment adversely impacting both content producers and consumers alike.

In an effort to democratize creative content, DECENT has officially launched its blockchain-based, global media distribution platform. The name is an acronym for Decentralized Network; Encrypted & Secure; Content Distribution System; Elimination of 3rd Parties; New Way of Online Publishing; Timestamped Data Records.

Designed to bring more transparency and fairness to the media industry, DECENT allows artists to seamlessly distribute digital content for immediate payment and without hefty fees. Peer-to-peer in its orientation, consumers decide the merits of a certain piece of content posted through a Yelp-like community rating system. The content, however, cannot be censored or removed.

This blockchain initiative endeavors to disrupt the legacy world of media distribution by allowing artists more freedom and control over the ownership and distribution of their content, all without compromising on security. It represents a potential gamechanger for the massive global media and content distribution industry — one that’s estimated to grow from $1.7 trillion in 2016 to over $2 trillion in 2019.

DECENT was founded in 2016 by two friends, Matej Michalko and Matej Boda, from Slovakia. It sprouted from a shared vision that blockchain technology could fuel a coordinated system of digital content publishing and sharing throughout the world.

Funding for DECENT was fueled by an ICO campaign last summer, which raised more than 5,881 BTC, at that time valued at $4.2 million USD. There were 4,300 ICO participants in total and no other key funding partners.

Michalko recounted the journey leading up to his own personal discovery of blockchain technology and its potential uses for the content distribution space. “I’ve been extensively involved in Bitcoin since 2011, even mining it from my own laptop at the beginning. I quickly realized that the innovative technology behind Bitcoin had the potential to change the modern world.”

When Michalko started to delve further into blockchain technology, he found a seemingly endless list of use cases the new technology could support. “I became determined to use blockchain technology to create something revolutionary that would be beneficial for people on a global scale. A short time later ongoing discussions between myself and our future co-founder Matej Boda quickly led to DECENT being born.”

He says that DECENT Network is a reaction to the issues that the majority of content producers face nowadays in the entertainment and media industry. “There is too much artificial complexity and too many barriers in the industry affecting both the access to market and income of the content owners.”

DECENT’S digital model allows artists to distribute any form of content, including written, music, videos, ebooks and pictures. These distribution channels are free of third-party influence, meaning that artists can also manage their intellectual property rights and set their own pricing.

One of the innovative adaptations that distinguishes DECENT from other blockchain platforms is the network’s reputation management system. This allows content creators who share their digital work on the platform to build a lifetime reputation, based on ratings from those who purchase content on the platform. DECENT Network also allows content creators to instantly receive payment when someone downloads their content, without any middleman interference.

Michalko believes that DECENT can break the trajectory in which a majority of power is concentrated in the hands of a few players controlling the industry. “Artists, filmmakers and writers lose control over their work and depend on the mercy of the ‘big guys.’ We designed DECENT Network to do away with all that and bring more transparency and fairness to the digital content industry.”

DECENT estimates that writers, for example, lose a healthy 30–75 percent chunk of their earnings when publishing with Amazon. Similarly, musicians, through licensing agreements, lose around 30 percent when selling a track on iTunes. Blockchain technology therefore serves as a mechanism that helps writers and musicians keep more money, while connecting with their audiences directly.

Michalko says that artists will be paid for their downloaded content through DECENT’s own cryptocurrency called “DCT,” which will be launched together with DECENT Network. Other payment options, he says, will be available in the future. “Artists will no longer have to wait months before seeing a penny from their work. And at the time of launch, DECENT Network will be a completely free-of-charge service for artists.”

Michalko hopes that by  2020, DECENT Network will have become the number one worldwide media sharing platform. “We hope to bring more transparency and fairness to the digital content industry for both creators and consumers. I hope that with our launch people will realize the advantage of DECENT Network over other content distribution platforms.”

          "The Flight" Chapter 2 of Apurvai, a travelogue by P.L. "PuLa" Deshpande   
Many years ago, I translated chapter 1 from the 1960 book. You don't HAVE TO read it to follow this chapter, but it is recommended. Unlike my other translations which were done from audio files of PuLa narrating his work, this one has been done from the actual book. So even Marathis who've never read the book will find something new here. 

To set the stage a little, in this chapter, PuLa describes the experience of his first ever international flight. Based on the references to the Suez Crisis, I'm guessing it happened in 1956 or 1957. So almost 60 years ago! I was surprised to learn of the sheer number of stopovers flights had to make in those days. It is indeed a different era. But so much of what he writes resonated with me in terms of my experiences with international flights. Which is why I chose to translate this although it isn't as ROFLMAO funny as the previous chapter.

Usual caveats - Much of PuLa's humor comes from how he played with the Marathi language, and it can get lost in translation. But his observations and descriptions stay relevant even 55 years later.

Our flight to London from Santa Cruz airport was scheduled for 11 PM on August 20th. It wasn't my first time flying, but it was the first time I was flying to another country, that too on a huge airplane. I had been told to reach the airport about an hour before the flight. Even if I hadn't been told this, I would've gone there two hours before. Because even when I am taking an M.S.M. train (or as you kids today call it, Southern Railway), I go to the station an hour early. Even if I have a reserved seat. 

I find it convenient to allow that buffer for unforeseen but predictable events like getting on the wrong train, not being able to find my compartment, taxi to the station breaking down, heavy rain causing waterlogging, forgetting some important stuff at home and realizing it halfway to the station, forgetting to fill the water bottle, and of course, panicking every few minutes thinking that I have either forgotten the ticket at home or lost it. 

And of course, Indian Railways regularly contributes with unforeseen but predictable events of its own. Just as you've spread out a sheet on your berth and laid down, a railways employee comes and says the compartment has some problems, so we need to shift to another one. It takes about 45 minutes to find a porter, find the replacement compartment, and move all the luggage. It turns out that if you turn the lights on, the fan stops working, and if you turn the fan on, the lights stop working. Finally both are fixed, and when you go to the bathroom, there is no water in the compartment. So you have to stay awake till Lonand to find a guard and complain about it. If you're lucky, it'll get fixed by the time the train reaches Nira. Or then wait till Miraj at 5 AM so you can use the bathroom on the station. 

So even if you go very early to the station, there's no guarantee that your rail journey will be pleasant. I wonder if we are destined to ever get railways that take the responsibility of passenger comfort seriously. Until then, there are only two ways to travel without any problems - on foot like Vinoba Bhave or by air.

Or so I thought.

When I bought my tickets at the Air India office, the lady behind the counter had told me to reach the airport at 9 PM. And then, flashing me a disarming smile, suggested that I call the airline before leaving to make sure the plane wasn't delayed. So just as we were about to leave, I remembered that smile and mentioned this to the huge contingent of friends, family, and neighbors gathered at our house to bid us farewell.

"Haha, don't be an idiot! It's a plane, not an ST bus to be delayed. Airlines operate with second-by-second precision!"

A friend, who had never traveled an inch north of Malad or south of Kala Ghoda, said making me feel like an idiot in front of everyone. This guy has always had this publicly dismissive attitude towards me. I don't know why I am still friends with him. When I told him I was being sent to England by Doordarshan, his first reaction was,

"You??? Why??? Looks like the government has too much money to waste!"

When I first wore the suit mentioned in the previous chapter, he laughed and said I looked like a trumpeter from one of the Dhobi Talao wedding bands. Totally unnecessary snark. But he can't help it. So even though he had no first hand experience on the matter, he stayed true to his nature and ridiculed me for wondering if I should call the airline to check the flight status.

My wife called the airline office anyway. And we came to know that because the incoming plane from Tokyo hadn't reached yet, our flight was delayed by two hours. 

I winced. The idea of sitting in Mumbai's humidity for two more hours wearing a three piece suit, that noose-like tie, those damned expensive Chinese shoes, the nylon socks bought after the Middle East cooled down, and a thick coat meant for England's cold weather, was unbearable. I was tempted to take off all my clothes (except for one) and cal the whole thing off. 

"So....will the plane depart exactly two hours later than scheduled?"

Someone from the annoyingly large farewell contingent asked, and that question suddenly made our house explode into a pointless deliberation that made it resemble a legislative body debating a useless resolution.

"Will the plane leave two hours later or do you go to the airport two hours later?"

"But does two hours really mean two hours?"

"But what does a plane coming from Tokyo have to do with an Air India flight going to London?"

"Let's say the plane reaches earlier than estimated......will it still leave two hours late or earlier than that?"

"Let's say that Tokyo flight is delayed by four hours instead, will your flight leave two hours late or four hours late?"

"Someone told me that last week a flight scheduled for midnight eventually departed after dawn. Is that true?"

"Are you sure it's a plane from Tokyo? Maybe it's Kyoto."

"I just called a friend of mine who works in a restaurant at the airport. He says there is some mechanical problem in this plane, and the Tokyo plane thing is just an excuse."

"So the flight might get cancelled?"

"Do they have a replacement plane? How many planes does All India Radio have anyway?"

"It's Air India, not All India Radio."

"Yeah, same difference."

"Mechanical problems......that's scary!"

"You both have life insurance, right?"

"Remember the plane that crashed at Cairo five years ago? My boss' nephew was on it. His wife got two million as compensation!"

"I've heard you can buy life insurance at the airport."

All this nonsense from people who had nothing to do with our travel whatsoever. I prayed to god to rescue me from this plane chaos by sending the plane he sent for Sant Tukaram. 

"I'm telling you guys. Instead of spending the two hours sitting at home, spend them sitting at the airport. Let's say they repair the plane early and it leaves before time. What are you going to do? It's not like you can catch it on the way. It's not the Barshi-Pandharpur passenger train. Hehehehe!"

So finally, following the over-cautious traditions of my train journeys, we reached the airport at 9:30 PM for a plane that was scheduled to depart at 1:30 AM. Some of my other friends and colleagues were at the airport already to see me off. They either didn't know that the plane was delayed, or even if they knew, they were aware of my over-cautious traditions. 

All my friends at the airport made me feel very awkward and also emotional by showering me with so many garlands and bouquets, that the airport officials thought I was a politician. And I had an epiphany at that moment - the greatest wealth in my life is my friends. If wealth were to be measured in friendships, I am probably richer than Tata-Birla combined. I have so many dear friends in so many walks of life! And so many of them had come late at night and out of the way to the airport to see me off. 

I felt touched but also embarrassed. Firstly, I still wasn't sure I could pull off the suit-boot look. Having such a huge audience for it felt weird. And then there were these garlands and bouquets. I was overwhelmed. I have gotten used to getting such attention at functions and award shows and suchlike. But on this occasion, I was feeling like I had an emotional debt to pay off. Just popping by to say goodbye is one thing, but these guys had come all the way to the airport!

My embarrassment was compounded by the fact that I hadn't really done or achieved anything to deserve all the attention that night. When I get such attention after a successful theater performance, it's okay. At least I gave them some happiness, and they are appreciating it. But that night, my wife and I were just flying to England like thousands of people do everyday. And yet my mob of friends at the airport had made me feel like I was doing something special. With a luggage full of such love and good wishes, I started feeling confident that even if all the engines of the plane failed, I could fly anywhere I wanted. 

The crowd of friends and all the flowers being heaped on me made the press photographers hanging around think that I was some big deal. They suddenly started snapping our pictures like paparazzi. In all this chaos, one of my friends went to the airport officials and convinced them to open a "VIP Lounge" for me. A sturdy fellow in a crisp uniform politely asked us to follow him to the VIP lounge. 

At that moment, my wife looked at me happily with an expression that said - "all these years that I have put up with you are finally paying off!"

As we were led into the imposingly plush VIP lounge, I started feeling even more awkward. Given our colonial history, I know that "England returned" has a certain halo attached to it. But I had no idea that the halo starts appearing even before you leave India. I started feeling worried about the possibility of a real VIP showing up and frowning at how our raucous farewell contingent had made the VIP lounge resemble Khandke's chawl. 

Even in all that chaos, I overheard one of the uniformed guys whispering to the other,

"Nowadays, any random person can become a VIP."

His colleague responded,

"Hoga koi Minister ka baccha nahi toh jamai!"

and walked away.

So I tried to appear and act as VIP-ish as possible. I went around folding my hands and solemnly thanking all the people who had come to see me off. Then I started giving away the garlands and bouquets to kids and being unnecessarily nice to them. Basically, emulating every aspect of VIP behavior that I could remember. 

A few of the professional photographers kept taking pictures of all this, and then offered to send them to me. They helpfully quoted a "professional" rate for it that was ten times what it would cost to get a photo taken in my neighborhood studio. But I was pretending to be a VIP and had to play the part. Once I parted with all the advance payments for the photos, the expression on my face finally came to resemble something that actually deserved to be photographs. I have no idea where those expensive photos are now, by the way.

Eventually there was an announcement that the customs check process had started, and we finally prepared to leave that VIP cell....I mean lounge. While leaving, I handed a generous tip to the uniformed guys standing at the door. The astounded expressions on their faces made me realize that real VIPs probably never hand out any tips. They hand out only two things - promises or threats.

We left the lounge and walked straight to the weighing scales near the customs area. I put our bags on it one by one and felt relieved when each of them were a pound or so less than the 44 pound limit. My wife on the other hand seemed a little disappointed and said,

"Hmpf, I guess we could have taken a few more papads then."

I ignored her and walked to the customs booth, standing in front of the officer with an appropriately guilty expression on my face.

This was the second time in my life that I had faced a customs officer. A few years ago, when returning from Goa (then a Portuguese territory) I stood in front of a customs officer for the first time. Everyone in front of me had been questioned extensively and had their bags checked thoroughly. So I was already terrified. Even though there was no reason to be terrified. In the entire crowd there, we were probably the only ones returning from Goa without as much as a tiny piece of chocolate. But customs booths are one of those weirdly imposing places where I feel nervous by default.

Some people are scared of a dentist's chair. Not me. I have been to dentists many times. One dentist actually turned my simple complaint of an aching tooth into an imperative to extract it with the glee of a professional sadist. It hurt so much, I think I actually saw a few angels waiting to welcome me into heaven. But even then, the next time I went to a (different, obviously) dentist, I went with the ease with which I go to Kulkarni's restaurant to eat bhajiyas. No fear or worries. But put me in front of a custom's officer and my heart starts racing.

There are many random entries in my list of "people I am irrationally scared of". For some reason, I am terrified of every liftman. Not afraid of the actual lift, mind you. It's not like I am scared that the lift will plummet to the basement or anything. I am just scared of the liftmen, at least in Mumbai, where almost all of them seem to have a cold blank expression on their face. I am also terrified of waiters in fancy restaurants. If one is standing next to me, I feel so nervous that I invariably spill something. I was never scared of male teachers, but female teachers always petrified me. And I can slap a doctor on his back and sing songs with him even when he is in the middle of surgery, but when it comes to nurses, my hands start trembling even if I am handing them a note. I have no idea why I carry these bizarre fears in my heart.

That customs officer I encountered when returning from Goa had insulted me rather painfully! I still shudder and shed a tear when I think about it.

When it was my turn, he asked me my name, address, and profession. Those days, I earned my living in a college fostering deep hatred for literature among the students. As soon as I told the officer that I was a Professor, and that too of Marathi, he just looked straight into my eyes, and with an expression conveying immense pity, said,

"You can go."

He didn't ask to search my luggage, didn't ask me if I was carrying any contraband, didn't even ask me if I had anything to declare. With utter conviction that I lacked the ability or the means to smuggle in alcohol, gold, cigarettes, or anything like that, he sent me on my way. I have never felt more humiliated. I would've preferred it if he had instead put me through a two hour long interrogation under a bright lamp.

So that day in Mumbai airport, I was wondering if the customs officer in charge of examining departing passengers would be more respectful. He looked at my bags, then glanced at my face, and then wordlessly made some chalk markings on the bags and waved me through. Rude, isn't it?

Next my wife and I went to Passport Control. Our passports had been issued two years ago and were valid for three more years. But one of my friends in the farewell party had authoritatively said, 

"Ohhhh.....just three years validity left? That might create problems. Good luck!"

I nervously handed over the passports to the officer. He glanced at them for a nanosecond and returned them to me. I was less worried about the validity and more worried about the passport photo. But the officer had evidently discovered some similarity between my passport photo and the way I actually look. Once we were done with that, a health officer quickly made sure we had taken the necessary vaccinations and we were done.

Once we got the "worthy of traveling abroad" certification from Pandit Nehru's people, all we could do was wait for the plane to leave. It was past midnight. The departure area at Santa Cruz is decorated and furnished in a very modern way. There are lots of comfortable couches and chairs for passengers to relax in. But my wife and I were sitting there uncomfortably, feeling out of place.

There was a European couple sitting in front of us. They seemed confused by Indian currency. These were the days when paisa coins co-existed with anna coins and the poor visitors had no idea if the many coins they had were worth five rupees or five annas. Hoping to give them a happy memory of Indian hospitality, I jumped in to offer unsolicited advice and ended up compounding their confusion even more. Finally my better half stepped in, sorted the whole thing out, and informed them that Indian women have a much better understanding of money than Indian men. 

The European couple left for their flight and I started looking around at other fellow-passengers. With a parochial mindset, I went around to see if there were other Marathi folk there, and soon met a man named Patil and a student named Joshi. I was there representing the Deshpande name. All we were missing was a Kulkarni. If we had found one, we would have had Patil-Joshi-Deshpande-Kulkarni, the four pillars of the ancient Marathi administrative set-up. Sadly there was no Kulkarni on that flight, but it did end up having a pilot named Nadkarni. Nadkarni is essentially the South Kannada version of Kulkarni, so I guess we ended up with the full set eventually.

 Around 1 AM, the plane's wings must have fluttered because suddenly, there was a lot of activity around us. The crowd started walking in one direction, and we went along. I looked at the glass barrier at the customs desk and saw our contingent was still patiently waiting. The elders had tears in their eyes and the younger lot looked like they were cracking stale jokes at our expense and passing them off as new. 

When we eventually reached the gate, I confirmed three times that it was the right plane. Or else we'd wake up the next morning in Cochin instead of Cairo. I still carried emotional scars from the night at Pune station that I got on a train to go to Kolhapur and woke up the next morning to find I was in a compartment parked in the Pune railway yard. I have always had the kind of luck where I take a girlfriend to watch a movie on the sly and run into a nosy old relative who decided to come watch the same movie. And I couldn't afford to let that luck mess up international travel. 

There was an air hostess standing at the door, welcoming us with an unnaturally wide smile. The rest of the crew, dressed in crisp dark trousers and skirts and blindingly white shirts, sporting wing shaped lapel pins and painstakingly groomed mustaches, was darting about doing their work. We reached our seats and stared out the tiny oblong window at the terminal, wondering if our friends and family were still there. 

Once I was in the seat, I assured myself that despite all apparent obstacles, it now seemed like I would definitely go to England, and fastened the seat belt around my stomach. The engines started humming and the fans started rotating one by one.   The plane got going. After zooming along the ground for a mile or so, it slowed down and stopped at the other end of the runway. 

As soon as it stopped, I started fearing the worst. The plane had already been delayed by mechanical problems. I wasn't sure if they had fixed the problems completely or had postponed some repairs. Maybe now they'd discover more problems. I also carried emotional scars from bus drivers who'd make passengers board on a scorching hot day, bake them in that tin box for an hour while they waited, and then open the bonnet of the bus to examine what's wrong with the engine. 

Luckily, nothing like that happened. In a couple of minutes, the plane started moving again, then sped up, and eventually left terra firma in a graceful glide. I watched the airport rapidly disappear from my view and before I knew it, Mumbai started resembling a gem-laden ornament below us. In that ornament, four million people were probably dreaming as they slept, while I sat with wide open eyes, realizing my childhood dream of foreign travel. 

And next to me was my soul mate and my life partner accompanying me on this adventure. Over the previous twelve years, we had built many castles in the air together, while never feeling tempted to build a house on the ground. We never stayed in one place for more than 2-3 years anyway. We had in common a huge appetite for new challenges and new experiences. And the latest one was to be living in England for 5-6 months.

Our flight had been in the air for a while, and the plane was completely dark as was the sky outside, but I still couldn't sleep. The plane was completely packed and experienced travelers were already snoring. Our air-hostess was Japanese. She was promptly and efficiently offering candy and nuts to travelers with a studied smile straight out of the training syllabus. Her walk was brisk and her voice had the crispness of springtime. 

I was feeling really hot. That damned suit on my body started feeling like clunky armor and I again cursed myself for wearing it on the plane. I looked around and was taken aback when I noticed at an Englishman sitting in front of me. Here I was, wearing a brand new three piece suit because I was going to his snooty country. And this dude was sitting there looking very relaxed in khaki shorts, a flannel shirt with some twenty five pockets, and a flimsy felt hat that did not match.

So I discreetly looked around at the other white people on the flight. Not a single one of them was dressed even as remotely formally as I was. Sitting there overdressed in that damned suit in the middle of the night, I started feeling like even more of a neophyte than I already was. 

Suddenly the Japanese air-hostess appeared with a small wet towel on a plate. I eyed the towel suspiciously for a second. I had no idea what purpose a wet towel was supposed to serve at two in the morning. But I was brought up never to turn a plate away, so I picked up the towel and thanked her. I looked at my wife to see if she had any suggestions, but she was fast asleep. I slowly glanced across the aisle and saw that the guy there was gently rubbing the towel on his face. I did the same, and the cool cologne scented fabric gave me some relief from the intense heat I was experiencing. 

Our massive jumbo jet was slicing through the darkness leaving cities and mountains behind. I was finally feeling a little drowsy. Almost everyone around me, including my wife, was already asleep. That Englishman with the khaki shorts was in fact trying to drown out the noise of the engine with his own booming multi-octave snores with his mouth open. The ex-subject of Her Majesty's realm inside me felt relieved to observe first-hand that even the English can snore with their mouths open. Because once our travel plans were made, I was a bit worried about that. 

You see, I am one of "those" too. But over the course of my life, I have come across some impressively loud snorers. My grandma says that people with big hearts and minds snore the most. I don't know if there is any correlation between big bodies and big hearts and minds - I won't mind if there is. I started thinking a lot about snoring and hearts and minds. I do remember that I spent a lot of time thinking about it. But I don't know for how long, because the next thing I knew, I was waking up to the dawn's early light.

Our plane was flying over a huge desert. I noted how different this dawn was from any other dawn I had experienced in my life, thousands of miles over a limitless desert. This experience, coming right after I had experienced a darkness so different from any other darkness I had experienced in my life, spurred some philosophical and metaphorical thoughts. It felt like I was witness to the dawn of a new phase of my life. I thought about my recent years and realized that I hadn't really experienced real dawn in years. In Mumbai's fast-paced hectic life, by the time my day ended, it was usually well past midnight. So by the time I usually woke up, dawn would have given up on waiting for me and slid away, making way for harsh sunlight. 

Our Japanese air-hostess, still looking as fresh as a dew-kissed flower, was making the rounds with hot fortifying beverages for the morning. I have never found those beverages particularly fortifying immediately after waking up, so I politely declined her offer of tea or coffee. Instead, I got up and headed to the bathroom. Taking care not to wake up or bump into any of the other passengers, I tiptoed my way to the front, and slowly opened the door to what I thought was the bathroom. Instead I found myself face-to-face with the fine gentlemen flying the plane. It was the cockpit door! I guess the expression on my face gave away what my need was because the co-pilot, without saying anything, pointed me to the correct door. 

I finished my morning ablutions and returned to the seat to find the "fasten seatbelts" sign flashing. By the time I was able to find the belt and buckle it up, the plane had started its rapid descent. I looked out the window and saw that we were headed to a desert island surrounded by more desert. I assumed it was Cairo, our first stopover. I started looking around the landscape in the hopes of spotting some pyramids. By the time I spotted a bump that I thought was a pyramid and was about to point it out to my wife, the plane was touching down, and before I knew it, it was standing stationary in a foreign land.

I looked at the dinky terminal outside the window and was a little disappointed that a city as renowned as Cairo should have an airport that looks more like an ST bus stand. But once we got off the plane, I learned that we were not in Cairo, but in some place called "Bahrain" instead. I felt a bit like Columbus who reached land confident that he was in India but then discovered that he was instead in some strange land he did not know anything about. And I felt relieved that I had not pointed out those supposed pyramids to my wife.

I had never heard of Bahrain before and had no idea where the hell it exactly was or why we were there instead of Cairo. But we walked into the terminal and headed for the restaurant. I learned that there were oilfields nearby and that Bahrain is a small island nation that is known for its oilfields. That was pretty much all we learned about the place. 

We sat in the restaurant, ordered tea, and waited while the plane was refueled. The tea arrived after a long time. One sip of that concoction and I was convinced that in Bahrain, they used dried date palm leaves in lieu of tea leaves and the milk probably came from a camel instead of a cow. Over the course of my life, I have tasted many different kinds of tea......except of course the spilled tea from Mongini's mentioned in the previous chapter. Tea served in small glass tumblers in Mumbai, tea served in mud bowls on the banks of the Narmada, tea served in metallic cups in Madras, masala milk tea, railway station tea flavored with charcoal, tea without milk, tea without sugar, and even Chinese tea made from jasmine flowers. But I will never EVER forget that horrible tea from Bahrain airport. I will happily drink the bitterest castor potion than drink that tea again.

Well, at least the tea was free, because it was paid for by the airline.

Pretty soon, the plane was ready and we all climbed back into its belly. The plane took off soon and headed for Cairo. The flight from Bahrain to Cairo was essentially just desert after desert after desert. Once in a while, just as a change of scenery, there would be a small strip of water. But otherwise, totally barren. Not a single glimpse of green. 

And that's when I really understood why the green flag of Islam came was hoisted in these deserts first. The prophet was very clever in choosing the color green for his flag. It is obvious why millions of Arabs enthusiastically followed that rare pleasant colored flag. I'm sure that the green flag was as instrumental in the spread of Islam as the Koran was. Add to it the moon that the desert dwellers probably equated with the relief provided by night, and I felt I had to applaud the prophet for his grasp of semiotics. 

It was about 8:30 in the morning. I was staring at the desert out the window hoping to spot a camel train. But in vain. I did spot a lot of dry river beds though. Soon the sun got really bright and the glare made it difficult to keep looking outside. Soon our plane moved from the sea of sand to a sea of water. Being geographically challenged, I first decided it was the Red Sea, then the Caspian Sea, then the Black Sea, and then the Dead Sea. I still have no idea which one it was.

A while later, there were murmurs all around that we were flying over the Suez Canal. All passengers looked out the windows, identified the first strip of water they could find, and assured themselves that it was the Suez Canal. Again, no idea if any of those were actually the Suez Canal. From the height we were flying at, every strip of water looked as tiny as the Fergusson College canal in Pune. But in one strip, I spied some dots that seemed like boats and I silently convinced myself that it was indeed the Suez Canal. It was hard to believe that this tiny strip of water was responsible for almost starting World War 3 and almost sinking my travel plans.  

When your plane is flying so high that you can only see the sky and clouds above you as well as below you, you can't help but get philosophical. You forget any fears you have about the plane crashing. Looking at creation from a height that makes even seas look like saucers of water makes you realize how insignificant you are in the whole scheme of things. As our plane flew towards Cairo, I couldn't help but realize that I was looking at the cradle of civilization. These deserts were where the Babylonian, Sumerian, and Assyrian civilizations had once bloomed. Where the library of Alexandria was once home to millions of of books that were burned. I'm assuming some Big Four or Big Five must have had a summit even then and decided that burning books was in the best interests of the world.

As impressive as the sights of great oceans, great skies, and great lands is while flying, one look at the great space when flying above clouds make them all pale in comparison. And you start wondering what the whole point of creation is, and whether you make any difference to it whatsoever. 

Our plane was about to reach Cairo soon and I started thinking about it. Egypt is an ancient civilization, much like India. Historians have discovered that trade and cultural links between Egypt and India date back millenia. This is the land that saw rich culture flourish for millenia even before Christ was born. And when Christ was born, the bright star that shone was above these lands too. This is the land where Jews, Christians, and Muslims found their faiths and then unfurled the blood-soaked flags of those faiths.

I was in the middle of these thoughts and didn't even realize when I dozed off. The next thing I knew, someone was yelling "KAHIRO!!!!", waking me up.

The first sight I saw at Cairo airport was of battle-ready fighter jets. Next to them were imposing anti-aircraft guns with their barrels pointed to the sky. The stage seemed to be set for the next big war. The only question seemed to be which actors would enter the stage first and who the director would be. Actors from dozens of countries seemed to be ready, with war-paint on, or make-up on. Who knew when the final act would start and when it would end.

When I read a big sign that said, "WE WELCOME YOU TO EGYPT", I felt like someone had sprayed a stream of cold water on my face on an oppressively hot day. Why shouldn't all human beings be welcomed heartily all over this little planet of ours? Although as long as there exist things like passports and visas, built on an assumption of distrust of fellow human beings, can we really expect true expressions of such humanity? The sign that said "WE WELCOME YOU TO EGYPT"....to any "you" who reached there, regardless of race, religion, gender, creed.....why shouldn't such signs and more importantly sentiments, be displayed everywhere?

The funny thing is, this "WE WELCOME YOU TO EGYPT" sign was right next to the massive anti-aircraft guns and the irony endemic to human existence tickled me and troubled me in equal amounts.

We headed to the restaurant inside the terminal. The waiters there were very friendly and polite, and served us some divine Egyptian coffee. Compared to Mumbai airport, I thought Cairo airport was small. There was a lot of new construction happening around us though. Egypt is currently in the midst of writing a new chapter in its history. Everybody is watching carefully to see which way their new statesman (Nasser) takes them.

It was in Cairo airport that I first encountered Egyptian people. And as I examined their appearance carefully, I wondered how many Egyptians there might be in Mumbai too. Because in terms of appearance, I didn't really see any major differences between Egyptians and Indians. Beyond the facts I had memorized in my childhood to score 2 marks in the history exam, such as pyramids, mummies, pharaohs, and the Nile river, my knowledge about Egypt was as barren as their desert. I had never even thought about anyone living in Egypt other than Cleopatra, General Najeeb, and now this Nasser fellow.

Suddenly, I was overcome by a profound sense of ignorance and curiosity as a foreigner in a foreign land. And sitting there in the Cairo airport, I started thinking about how day-to-day life in Egypt must be and how I knew nothing about it. How do school teachers, lawyers, and bureaucrats here dress? Is it similar to how those folks dress in India? What is the most popular item in a typical restaurant in Egypt? Do wives here refer to their husbands by name or is there some tactful pronoun that has been coined for the purpose like in India? With each passing second, the expanse of my ignorance about this fascinating culture seemed to exceed the expanse of the desert.

Then I started thinking about the people who worked at that airport. For them, a typical day consisted of interacting with travelers from dozens of different countries, for maybe an hour or two at a time, before they went on their way and were replaced by a different set of foreigners. Do they feel the same sense of curiosity and note their ignorance about other cultures? Or has it become just a mundane feature of their lives by now? Do they actively notice the multi-colored lattice of different races and nationalities or does it just pass by in the blink of an eye like a frame from a cinema reel?

I spent the rest of the time in Cairo thinking about all this before we were called back to the plane. The next stopover was Geneva in Switzerland. As our plane surged through the clouds, we gradually left the desert behind and were soon traveling over Europe. Specifically, Italy, as the pilot informed us.

While I was almost entirely ignorant about Egypt except for its ancient history and contemporary politics, I at least knew more about Italy thanks to all the books I had read. Names like Rome, Venice, and Naples started swimming around in my head. I decided that if the plane had to crash right now, I would want it to do so near Naples. I had read that Naples was home to some of the most awe-inspiring sculptures in the world. So if my plane crashed in Naples, I could drag myself to those sculptures, see them first hand, and then die happy.

Yes, I know it is morbid to keep pondering the possibility of the plane crashing but that's how I am and be honest, aren't you too?

But the plane kept going. I kept looking at the Italian landscape underneath and we didn't see Naples or Venice. But we did fly over Rome. It was hard to miss. As I looked at the distant but clear images of various buildings and cathedrals in Rome, I first felt a great sense of satisfaction at seeing them first hand. Then I compensated for the unfamiliar bliss by berating myself for still not having read Gibbon's "The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire" even after buying it years ago. I made a mental note to read it as soon as I returned home.

When you're flying over different countries of the world, you think more about what you haven't read about those lands than what you have read. In another hour or so, our plane was flying over the gorgeous alps and I realized we were in Europe's Eden.

Soon the plane touched down in Geneva. I had heard a lot of cautionary tales about how the cold in Europe is way worse than anything I might have experienced in India. I experienced it first hand as I walked into the Geneva airport and felt like I had walked into a massive refrigerator. And this was just August! So I shivered a little and prepared for six more months of this inhumanly cold weather. No wonder these white folks ran away and captured our warmer lands.

As soon as I stepped into the chilly Geneva airport, my brain initiated a flashback from 20 years ago from my college days in Pune. I had grown up in Mumbai, where it never gets even remotely chilly. Then in Pune in the winters, every so often, I would wake up to such a chilly morning. It felt more bracing than oppressive, making me feel like running all the way across the world. I had always thought cold weather would make me feel like a shriveled old man, but instead, it made me feel like a daring young man, ready to achieve anything!

Anyway, we walked into the restaurant at the Geneva airport and it looked more like a flower shop than a restaurant. The faces of all the staff members were fresh and enthusiastic like recently bloomed lilies. There was a spring in their step. It didn't look like anyone could ever age, and everyone looked like they were in their 20s even though they probably weren't. We were served coffee in a very elegantly crafted glass cup. And it tasted divine and almost intoxicating. I wondered that if even the coffee here gets my pulse racing so much, what will stronger beverages do? I had heard that Switzerland is a place where extreme beauty and extreme pleasure is the default and my experiences at their airport confirmed it.

I didn't even realize when that stopover at Geneva ended. It was cold, but I was surrounded by beauty, human and non-human, and I felt more alive than I ever had. Before I got back on the plane, I turned around and took a 360 degree mental picture of all I could see of Switzerland from that terminal. The tall trees sheltering cute little houses, the snow-covered peaks of the Alps kissing the deep blue sky. I promised myself to return for a more leisurely visit. When the plane took off, I was looking at a meandering little river as it flowed through the verdant Swiss countryside, when suddenly, our plane ascended above the clouds. And those fluffy white things that a few hours earlier had seemed gorgeous, now seemed like villains for blocking my view of the Swiss landscape. Our journey continued.

The next stop was to be at Dusseldorf in Germany, It had been over 20 hours since we took off from Mumbai. The hands of my watch had already been rotated many times by then. Every hour, the pilot made announcements about how high we were flying, what the temperature outside was, what the local time was, and so on. Passengers around us were saying random things in response to those announcements like, "Oh! 18,000 feet? That's nice! Very high!"

We were flying through clouds at that moment, so I personally couldn't tell the difference between 18,000 feet and 18 million feet. Honestly, this whole thing of estimating distances has been a challenge for me, whether I am in the air or on the ground. Whenever I read about some witness in court say stuff like "the accused was 19 feet away from me", I feel jealous of his ability to express distance so precisely. Because I absolutely suck at it. I can't even remember the inches in my own measurements for shoes, hats, collars, socks, and so on. When a shoe salesman asks what size I want, I just give him the chappals I am wearing then and ask him to figure it out. I have immense respect for people who go shoe shopping and say stuff like "Bring me Number 8 pairs".

And when someone remembers the precise date on which something happened, I feel overcome enough with admiration to go hug them. When I hear someone say stuff like, "I remember it was July 17th...", I am amazed. I suck at dates too. Which is why I always sucked at history in school. Even now, I remember only three dates - Shivaji Maharaj died in 1680, the 1857 uprising happened in 1857, and using multiple reminder mnemonics, my wife's birthday. Other than these three, I have no idea of any other dates. You can ask me when India gained independence and I will try to hedge between 1947 and 1950.

Anyway, the point is, I am horrible with anything that is expressed numerically. So even before I could figure out how high 18,000 feet exactly is, our plane was touching down in Dusseldorf. Before I knew it, we were surrounded by cries of "Achtung! Achtung!" and "Gut! Gut!". My wife and I walked to the terminal, now sick of this sequence of stopovers. Yes. I was in Germany with its rich history and culture and intriguing contemporary split between East and West, but I didn't give a damn. The aforementioned Joshi and Patil left us here and we sat there hoping that we'd reach London before we died of boredom.

Why does the final stretch of the journey always seem to last the longest? Even when I am traveling from Pune to Mumbai by train, it is the same. The time from Pune to Thane or Kalyan seems to breeze by in a happy procession of vada, omelets, chikki, etc. But from there, Mulund, Bhandup, Vikroli, Dadar, etc seem to take an eternity to pass by. Very annoying! It's the same with other trips too. When you're taking a train from Mumbai to Delhi, everything seems great until you reach Mathura, and then after that, things seem to slow down. If you're going from Mumbai to Nagpur. it is Wardha that is the tipping point after which it is all yawns and polite curses.

The flight from Dusseldorf to London seemed similarly annoying and yawn-inducing. Finally, after about the hundredth yawn, the plane started barreling downwards. All the passengers around us seemed to have perked up as the plane continued descending. Finally there was a bump and the plane started slowing down. And a few passengers around me echoed my thoughts,

"Ah! London!"



          Thoughts on Haider   
Watched Haider. Liked it a lot. But it certainly isn't Vishal Bhardwaj's best as some reviewers have suggested. It wasn't a masterpiece like Maqbool and Blue Umbrella were. It had its problems. And the problems weren't fundamental, but cosmetic. Which makes the problems all the more annoying.

It seemed like Michaelangelo's David wearing underwear because its creator didn't want some people to blush. Or the Mona Lisa with eyebrows penciled on at the last minute because Leonardo didn't want to deal with "but where are the eyebrows?" questions.  

You can see that there was a masterpiece hidden in there, but was robbed of its true form due to lack of total conviction or concerns about propriety. Ironically, it seems like Vishal had his own "to be or not to be" struggle about how much to push the envelope. And ended up undermining the end product. Not too much, but just enough to make it fall short of greatness.

Here are some disjointed thoughts about the movie.

1) The "Anti-Army" charges

Many self-proclaimed nationalists on Twitter have been bashing the film as being "anti-army". Haider isn't nearly as anti-army as Maqbool was "anti-police". Vishal cast two corrupt police officers in the role of the witches from Macbeth, and gave them a lot more mischief to do. Heck, Haider isn't even as anti-army as Hum Aapke Hai Koun is "anti-stairs" because if not for those damn stairs, Pooja would've been alive and Nisha and Prem would've gotten married without Tuffy having to exert himself.

A lot of this "nationalist" outrage against Haider is a by-product of the mass delusion that most Indians have willingly been a part of and ardently sought to perpetuate. The delusion that the idea of India is more inclusive and benign than it actually is. That if some folks in Kashmir or in the North-East don't consider themselves Indian, it's just stupid, their fault, and totally the handiwork of Pakistan and/or China. And....most importantly....that our army can do no wrong. It can't do anything dishonorable or horrible.

But our army sometimes.....often.... does dishonorable or horrible things. Mostly because as Shivam Vij explains, that's the army's job in situations like 1990s Kashmir.

If you watch the movie without having this naive hyper-nationalized romanticized notion of what the Indian army is, Haider actually seems to go somewhat out of its way to be respectful to the army and justify its perceived excesses. When a home is blown up, it is because a bonafide terrorist really is hiding in it. People are are tortured either are or are strongly suspected of being terrorists trained by Pakistan. And if innocent people are being incarcerated or killed, it's not the army's fault. It is due to misinformation from the conniving two-faced Ikhwan types.

2) Excessive Soapbox Usage

Vishal has so far occupied a level higher than other Indian directors because of how nuanced, layered, and yet powerful his scripts are. You're not hit over the head with blatant exposition of irony, tragedy, or even humor. 

Haider was a bit too "speechy". And I don't mean the soliloquies that Hamlet is famous for. In fact most of those were excised. I mean speechy in the sense that Vishal and Basharat Peer seeme to be almost compelled to give us a preachy soapbox exposition of almost every political perspective in the Kashmir issue. 

So you have the speech about Nehru's betrayal, and the speech about Kashmiri Pandits, and the speech about how violence isn't the answer, and the speech about how "azadi" is synonymous with joining Pakistan, and the speech about.......about about about......

To make matters worse, not only were the speeches utterly banal, but they also served as speed-breakers in the narrative. They were less Vishal Bhardwaj and more Mani Ratnam or Aaron Sorkin. 

The most poignant points about the whole issue were actually made in several vintage Vishal scenes, either sub-textually or organically. The chutzpah-AFSPA dialog for instance or the scene in which Basharat himself has a cameo. 

All those soapbox scenes, the movie could have done without. I couldn't help but feel that they were there for Vishal to hedge politically. Every one of those scenes was meant to mollify or assuage one of the stakeholders in  the Kashmir issue. It's like Vishal had a checklist and wanted to make sure everyone got their spiel in and nobody felt left-out. The end result ironically is that you will find several Indian nationalists, Pakistanis, pro-freedom Kashmiris, Kashmiri Pandits, and so on who think the movie is unfair to their perspective.  

3) Shahid Kapoor

Shahid put in a solid effort. He tried hard and stretched himself to the maximum. But it simply wasn't good enough. Especially in the second half when Hamlet in the play really comes into his element, Shahid Kapoor seemed instead to be channeling Sridevi from Sadma. 

The movie would've been better served by casting not Shahid, but an actor who won accolades for playing a guy named Shahid - Rajkumar Rao. At several points in the movie when Shahid's earnest but inadequate emoting was making me cringe, I closed my eyes and tried to imagine Rajkumar Rao in the same scene.

          Advice for International Masters Students Cold-Call Emailing Business School Professors   
It is that time of the year again for me as an assistant professor in an American business school. August-September, the start of the academic year. When I get at least a handful of emails everyday from just-arrived international Masters students, typically from India and China, asking about Research Assistant (RA) or Teaching Assistant (TA) positions. I usually send a prompt reply telling them I have no positions available and wish them luck. Most other people in my place in business schools just ignore the mails and/or delete them.

This post is meant to explain why I almost always send summary rejections and why most others ignore or delete the emails.

The key to this explanation is the almost unique nature of the microcosm that are business schools. Specifically, research-oriented business schools that co-exist with prestigious engineering schools in the same university such as mine.

Research in business schools is very different from research in engineering schools. In engineering schools, research has a lot to do with winning 6-7 figure grants and patents. That is the nature of the engineering world. In business schools, the incentives for tenure-track research professors are different. The nature of our field is such that there are few, if any, opportunities for patents and big grants. In our field, research productivity is measured by publications in top level journals.  

The other aspect of business research is the cost element. The reason we don't care as much about grants is that our research is nowhere as expensive to conduct as engineering research. We don't need expensive equipment, months long experiments, and suchlike. Most business research is conducted using secondary data or individual behavioral experiments. The most expensive equipment we need is limited to powerful computers to do our analysis. 

We don't have as many conferences to go to. In each of the sub-fields of business (such as Finance, Marketing, Management etc), there are two, maybe three MUST-ATTEND conferences each year. Our conferences aren't as selective as engineering conferences in terms of who gets to present. Obviously, "conference proceedings" are a non-factor in tenuring decisions when it comes to business school faculty. What matter are publications.

Basically, our research doesn't cost that much. That's the cost side.

Now on to the revenue side. Most business schools have MBA programs that charge tuition way higher than the average program. Most MBA programs don't offer any funding. MBA programs earn business schools a lot of money. Then there are undergraduate programs. Undergrad business programs are very popular in most schools in the US. So business schools get a decent chunk of change from the universities for that. Then there are endowments, consulting fees, and other revenue opportunities.

So to summarize what I have said so far, business schools in the US have a higher revenue than other schools, and have lower research costs than other schools. And, to reiterate, faculty research is measured in terms of publications in top journals, not patents, conference proceedings, or grants. Not that there are that many business-centric grants anyway.

As a result, here is how the typical contract for a typical tenure-track faculty member in a research-oriented business school works. We get a salary. And we get a research budget from our business school that is roughly $10,000-50,000 per year. 

These amounts might be relatively paltry for engineering professors who need to buy expensive equipment and need to hire several grad students to take care of the equipment and run experiments. But in business schools, that amount is plenty. 

Then there's the unique nature of business school PhD programs. They are geared exclusively towards academia. Which means the program is designed only to send graduates into academic positions, NOT industry positions. 99.9% of marketing PhDs will become marketing professors, not work in marketing jobs in the industry. 99.9% of management PhDs will become management professors, not work in management jobs in the industry. And so on.

PhD programs in business schools will also have a tiny intake compared to engineering schools. In a typical top-50 or even top-100 research business school in the US, the total incoming PhD class size every year will be about 15, with 2-3 students dedicated to sub-fields such as finance, marketing, management, etc.

In business schools, these PhD students are fully funded and paid a stipend by the business school. In return, they have to work 20 hours a week each for tenure track professors.

(Sidebar: the most "privileged" international grad students in any school are business school PhDs. They are assured of tuition waivers and stipends for at least 4 years from the school itself, and not tied to any Professor like in engineering schools. They also get academic positions relatively easily without having to do postdocs.)

Now, each department will have a roughly 1:1 ratio between tenure track professors and PhD students. Part of each tenure track professor's contract is 10 hours or "free" RA work from an assigned PhD student. Free as in, the professor doesn't pay the student. The business school does. And the business school pays for the tuition.

So now we come to the main point. Most of us business school professors have a PhD student assigned to work with us without us paying anything. Our research budgets, given by the school not from grants, are in the 10-50K range to buy computers, buy data, go to conferences, etc....generous but not enough to fund a grad student, which including tuition and stipend, will use up the entire budget.

When a Masters student from engineering or quasi-engineering (Information Systems, Technology Management etc) fields sends a cold-call email to a typical business school professor, he is making a pitch to someone who has neither the requirement nor the budget to hire him.

That's maybe 99% of business school professor. The 1% who might have RA/TA positions for you are the rare minority of business school professors who got a grant or got an extra endowment for a research lab or something. They might just have positions that Masters students can fill. They tend to advertise their positions well in advance. But even if cold-calling works for them, it needs to be very specific.

Many international students make the mistake of composing one utterly general boilerplate email and sending it to all professors. See this for instance.


In this case, even if I was a professor with an opportunity for this student, I wouldn't contact him. Because the email is so general. If I want to hire a Masters student, I would like that student to be genuinely interested in what I am doing.

So even if you do send cold-call emails to business school professors, make sure they are individually customized and reflect their particular research interests. 

And of course, make sure you really are interested in the research of the professor you are pitching your services to. We professors do talk to each other, you know? If during a coffee chat, we discover that Masters Student XYZ sent an email to me saying "I am really passionate about Marketing and hope to make a career in it", and also to my Finance colleague saying, "I am really passionate about Finance and hope to make a career in it", it not only gives us something to chuckle about, but also destroys your credibility in our eyes forever.

I'll end by saying that in general, the strike rate for an engineering or quasi-engineering MS student getting RA/TA positions from individual professors in business schools are low. And I hope this post informs incoming Masters students about this and saves them some wasted effort. 

          Antu Barva by P. L. "PuLa" Deshpande   
Fourteen years ago today, Purushottam Laxman Deshpande, arguably the most influential and beloved person from Maharashtra, died at the age of 81. He left behind a gargantuan legacy in the form of his books, plays, songs, movies, essays, social work, but more than that, the lasting impact he has had on Maharashtra. Every couple of years, I translate one of his essays or short stories on this blog. This time, I have chosen Antu Barva, a fictionalized life sketch that he created as an amalgam of several people he knew in Konkan. It is not exactly LOL funny, but is light-hearted while still tugging at your heart-strings. It is meant as a depiction of the tough life in Konkan in the middle of the 20th century, and the sort of complex and poignant characters such a life spawns.

But as somber as the basic subject matter is, PuLa manages to inject humor into it, even if the humor is dark. When I first read Antu Barva, I just read it as a slightly humorous life sketch. As I have re-read it and re-heard its narration over the years, I have come to recognize it as something beyond just that. It is one of PuLa's best allegorical social commentaries in my opinion. He was duly recognized for Vyakti Aani Valli, the book that this sketch appears in, with a Sahitya Akademi Puraskaar. In that book, I think this is THE most impressive and multi-layered sketch.

For years, I considered translating Antu Barva here but was too intimidated given how nuanced it is. PuLa gave Antu a specific Konkani "voice" (in text form as well as when he narrated the sketch for TV) that is impossible to translate. No matter how well I tried, I thought I would end up doing injustice to the original work. This is in addition to the usual difficulties in translating PuLa's wordplay and nuanced observations. So it is with a great sense of trepidation that I am even attempting this today. A LOT will get lost in translation. But I hope PuLa's fans will forgive me any errors. Because I think this particular piece is one of the greatest literary achievements from an Indian and it deserves a wider audience.

Miss you, PuLa. Bhool-chook maaf kara.

Ratnagiri's middle lane has been home to some towering personalities over the years. God used a unique formula when creating these people. These people tend to be a metaphorical amalgam of Ratnagiri's most famous products - sweet mango, rough jackfruit, hard coconut, irritating colocasia leaves, and intense betel nuts whose one bite will make your heart jump up your throat.    

It is in this unique Ratnagiri soil that Antu Barva grew and ripened. Actually, Antu's age doesn't really justify people casually calling him just "Antu". When I first met him 12-14 years ago, not just his stubble, but even the hair on his ears and chest had turned white. His teeth had mostly gone "Annu Gogtya".

Going Annu Gogtya = falling.

This is an idomatic phrase that Antu Barva coined. A lawyer from Ratnagiri named Annu Gogte has been standing in the local elections for many years. Standing and then falling. Repeatedly, without even coming close to winning. So even if a bucket falls in a well, Antu asks "has the bucket gone Annu?"

When someone is talking about old Antu, they just refer to him in the singular casual "Antu". As it is, characters from Konkan are quite singular. But no one calls Antu just "Antu" to his face.  They call him Antu sheth!

True blue Brahmin Antu got this trader caste suffix "sheth" decades ago. After all Antu himself had committed a sin justifying this demotion. During the first world war, Antu started a shop near the docks. It failed spectacularly even before the Treaty of Versailles. But that short-lived stint as a shopkeeper was enough to turn Antu into Antu sheth.

After that, no one remembers Antu doing anything specific to make a living. He manages to somehow score at least two square meals a day from somewhere. He has a little plot of land with a garden that has a couple of dozen coconut and Alphonso mango trees, sprinkled with the odd jackfruit and tamarind tree. He has a little single-room shack on that land. He has the right to draw water from the nearby well. Antu sheth manages to get by on all this.

I first met Antu at Bapu Hegishte's store. I had gone there to buy some cigarettes when Antu's face peered out from behind a newspaper. He slid his reading glasses up his forehead and said,

"You're Lawyer saheb's son-in-law, right?"

"Yes" I replied.

"Ahha! I recognized you right away! Please, have a seat, please. Bapu, some tea for our jawaibapu (a respectful term for son-in-law)!"

I had no idea who this guy was, suddenly acting so familiar. Antu sheth himself explained,

"Your father-in-law is a good friend of mine. Tell him Antu Barva said hello."

"Sure."

"Hmmm....when did you come from Pune?"

"Two days ago."

"Of course....the first Diwali after you got married....haha...ask him for a Ford car!"

"He is your friend. Why don't you tell him?"

"Haha, you're from Pune after all. Can't get the last word with you." he laughed. "So...staying long or just a flying visit?"

"Just a short trip. I'm leaving in a couple of days."

"Excellent! It's always good to keep such visits short. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that. Don't end up like that Kasopkar's son-in-law. He set up camp for six months. Finally Kasopkar lost his patience and made him plow his land! When a son-in-law stays with you for too long, he starts feeling like a pain in the neck, right?"

"You're right." I nodded.

"Bapusheth, I hope you recognized our lawyer's son-in-law. We are both your father-in-law's clients, jawaibapu."

Bapu Hegishte smiled and folded his hands in greeting.

"Welcome. Would you like to have some tea?" he asked.

"No, it's okay. It's really hot right now."

"Of course, it's always going to be hot in Ratnagiri!" Antu jumped in. "You can't sleep in a cowshed and then complain about the stink of cow piss! If Ratnagiri had cool weather, they'd have called it Shimla, not Ratnagiri!"

Before I could say anything, Antu continued,

"But the heat is way worse in your neighborhood with all those houses next to each other. Come to my garden near the beach. My garden is...how do you say...."aircondition"!"

Antu sheth said the last words in English and laughed, and then added,

"That's our country joke, jawaibapu!"

Then he addressed Hegishte again.

"Bapusheth, did you know our jawaibapu here is a writer? Writes plays and movies and what not. Behave properly when he is around or he'll write a hilarious farce about you."

The pride I felt on my fame having spread even to someone like Antu Barva was dashed by Bapu Hegishte's next question. Bapusheth looked me up and down carefully for a few seconds and said,

"What do you do?"

"What the hell do you mean what does he do?" Antu thundered. "Are you insane, Hegishte? Take out that pile of raddi old newspapers and open them. You'll see his name and picture in dozens of places! He makes movies!"

"Movies!!?? Really??" Hegishte's expression changed to one of wonderment and he looked at me as if I was God.

"Jawaibapu, speaking of movies, can I ask you a question if you don't mind?"

I could see the naughty expression on Antusheth's face as he asked me this.

"Sure, go ahead."

"How much money do you make from one movie?"

This wasn't my first trip to Konkan. So by now, I had gotten used to dealing with such intensely personal questions.

"That really varies from movie to movie." I deflected.

"But still....I mean I have read that you get like a million or a million and a half."

"No way! There isn't nearly that kind of money in Marathi films."

"Yeah, but still. Even if you don't get fistfuls, you must be getting at least 2-3 pinchfulls?"

"You get it sometimes, and also lose it sometimes." I stuck to being vague.

"Well of course, it's a business after all. When it comes to business, you win some, you lose some. It's all part of the game."

Antu sheth got philosophical. But only for a moment.

"Can I ask you one more question? Only if you don't get angry."

"What's there to get angry about? Go ahead."

"Well..you know....whatever we read about these film actresses in magazines and all....is that real or is it fake like Gangadhar Basthe's "real" Belgaum butter?"

"What do you mean all this about film actresses?" I kept a straight face and pretended to not get what he was saying.

"Quite a skillful guy you are, jawaibapu. Skillful! You'll make a great witness in court!" Antu sheth was having none of it. "All this about film actresses as in...the whole index finger nostril thing."

I didn't immediately get what he meant by the whole index finger nostril thing. So Antu sheth gently tapped his index finger against his nostril and winked. Fortunately, before I had to say anything, a waiter arrived with the tea Hegishte had ordered.

"Looks like all the cows in Ratnagiri are still pregnant, Jhampya!" Antu made a sarcastic remark to the waiter on the color of the tea. And then he poured the tea in the saucer and started slurping it.

Actually, Antu sheth could have just said to the waiter in plain words that the tea was low on milk. But he preferred the "all the cows are still pregnant" phrasing. Why just Antu sheth? Almost everyone from that middle lane in Ratnagiri spoke in that sarcastic obtuse way.

By now, Antu sheth and I have become good friends. In the last decade or so, whenever I have gone to Ratnagiri, I have spent time with him. He always included me in his group of friends, taught me the ganjifa card games they played. And over the years, I heard a lot monologues on the odd philosophy of life that those men in their 60s had developed.

I even learned all the idiomatic phrases the group had come up with. They all dressed similar. A cotton loincloth from the waist below, a small cotton scarf on the shoulder, worn-out sandals, one hand holding a walking stick, and the other holding a jackfruit. Dressed like that, Antu sheth would roam around in the neighborhood calling his friends to join him every afternoon.

"Govindbhat! Wanna play a couple of hands?"

"Paranjape? Are you awake or have you turned into a python?"

I too became a part of their card game gang. If once in a while, the card game wasn't really panning out well, Antu would put the cards down and say to me,

"Jawaibapu, why don't you sing a Malkauns or something? Godbolya, bash a little tabla with our guest. Khaju sheth, open your decrepit harmonium."

And then we'd have an impromptu jam session for a bit at Antu sheth's orders.

"Jawaibapu, your pipes are kick-ass!" he'd compliment my singing in his unique way.

Every other year or so, I'd visit Ratnagiri and attend Antu sheth's court. But with each visit, the court seemed to be getting smaller.

"Antu sheth, haven't seen Damu kaka around." I asked once.

"Who? Damu Nene? He is living it up! I am told Rambha is rubbing oil on his bald head, and Urvashi is airing him with a fan!"

"What????"

"What do you mean what? Damu Nene got transferred from Ratnagiri!" and Antu Sheth pointed to the sky.

"Oh!" I finally understood what he meant. "I am so sorry. I had no idea."

"Why would you have any idea about it? Do you think that they're going to announce on the radio that Damu Nene has croaked? His family did pay for an obituary in the newspaper though. Heh, they wrote he was loving, caring, friendly, pious, and what not. What do the newspaper folks care? As long as you are paying, they will publish any nonsense."

Antu continued in his characteristic manner.

"Damu Nene and loving? Hmpf! Even when he was lying dead on the pyre, the furrow on his brow was intact! One day he decided to sleep outdoors because it was too hot. They found him dead the next morning. Lucky bugger. Died on Ashadhi Ekadashi too! So there were two processions from Ratnagiri that day. One for Lord Vithoba and another for Damu Nene. Damu died on Ashadhi. And then on Dussehra, Dattu Paranjape crossed the border and did seemolanghan. The first guy croaked, the second guy croaked.....now waiting for the third. They say things happen in three."

Antu looked at me mischievously and shrugged.

And that's the essence of Antu Barva for you. Standing at less than 5 feet, bronze-fair complexion, small pockmarks on his face, small gray eyes, creased skin belying his advanced age, half his teeth fallen....or "gone Annu"...leading to a new habit of poking his tongue through the gaps while talking.... and with all this, weighing in at barely 100 lbs.

Every aspect of Antu Barva's earthly existence was getting worn out with each passing year except for two - the nasal booming voice and the slick intelligence fed by decades of rubbing coconut oil on his head.

It wasn't just Antu sheth. Almost all the men his age from that part of Ratnagiri were of a similar bent....which was a crooked bent. Their language was unnecessarily complex and their attitude exceedingly cynical. They didn't feel happy if someone did well, and didn't feel sad if a tragedy befell someone. There was no joy for births, no mourning for deaths. Most of them apart from Antu didn't really like music, but didn't dislike it either. And when it came to food, the taste and flavors didn't matter, as long as their belly got filled. The engine of their life never really faltered when it ran out of steam, nor did it go fast when it did have some steam. But the road their lives took was like every road in Konkan- serpentine.

That's the hand life had dealt them. Even though their lives were full of the wholesome coconut tree, their fates and thus their tastes leaned less towards the sweet creamy inside of the coconut, and more towards its tough shell.


One summer, a second-rate theater company from Mumbai was touring Ratnagiri staging Ram Ganesh Gadkari's famous play Ekach Pyala. I went to watch it. The production was barely competent in the first act. At intermission, I walked outside to the hissing clinks of soda bottles being opened. Under a Kitson lamp, I saw Antu sheth's diminutive form. He was talking to the fur-cap clad manager of the theater company.

"So....how's the attendance?" Antu sheth asked.

"Not bad." the manager gruffly replied.

"Not bad? Most of the chairs seem empty. Why don't you let me in for half price?"

"No way!" the manager shook his head rudely.

"Why are you brushing me away like a lizard? I heard the first act from out here anyway. The guy playing Sindhu doesn't seem to be very good."

[aside - in the early-to-mid 20th century in orthodox Maharashtra, it was taboo for women to perform on stage. So much like in Shakespeare's days, female parts were usually played by men. The legendary Bal Gandharva excelled at this and one of his most famous roles was playing Sindhu in the first staging of Ekach Pyala.]

"The guy playing Sindhu doesn't seem to be very good." Antu sheth said. "He sang 'lage hridayi hurhur' like a squeaking mouse. Did you ever hear how Bal Gandharva sang it?"

The manager got pissed off.

"I'm not begging you to come watch it!" he thundered.

"But the town is full of your advertising boards begging us to come watch it." Antu sheth instantly replied. "And yesterday your people were going door to door with fliers. As it is, it's mainly empty chairs you are showing this play to. How about four annas?"

"Four annas? What is this? A monkey performing on the street?"

"That's better than this! They perform first and then circulate a plate for money. Why don't you try that? If the next act is better than the first one, I'll pay you an extra four annas!"

The people standing around them started laughing and the manager got even more upset. That's when Antu sheth noticed me.

"Namaskar, jawaibapu! How's it going? How's Ekach Pyala?"

"It's okay." I said.

"I'm sure you got a complimentary pass. You're from the same community. I have heard that barbers don't charge each other for shaves."

"No, nothing like that. See, I bought a ticket."

"Then why a wishy-washy response like "it's okay"? You've paid hard-earned money for this, haven't you? Assert your rights as a paying customer. Call it what it is. Utter crap. Especially that guy playing Sindhu is totally useless!"

"What do you mean the guy playing Sindhu? It's a woman playing the role." I told him.

"WHAT??" Antu sheth looked genuinely shocked. "You're kidding me! That voice and that built! If she decides, she can lift Sudhakar up like a baby! Sindhu indeed.......more like Sindhudurg!"

"So you watched the play after all?"

"For a few minutes. Moved the curtains from the window and had a peek. Hmpf! Even gypsy performers are better than these idiots."

Antu sheth spat out another unsolicited opinion and walked away.

But that's pretty much what his life was - spitting out unsolicited opinions. I knew Antu for so many years, but I never found out much about his family situation. Once Anna Sane from Antu's court had let slip a mention of his son.

"What? Antu sheth has a son?" I asked.

"Of course he has a son. Not only that, his son is a Collector!" Anna Sane nonchalantly said.

"Collector???"

"Yup. He's in charge of collecting tickets on Byculla station." he deadpanned without letting a single muscle move.

"Doesn't look like he helps out his father financially."

"He does sometimes. When he can. He has his own family. Besides, a Western Railway compartment has been attached to a Central Railway train."

A PhD student could do a dissertation on those guys' peculiar idioms and phrases. I was well-versed in the language by now but it took me a few moments to realize that this was code for an inter-religion marriage.

"So you see, Antu sheth has trouble with his post-bath rituals at his son's place. Plus apparently his son is also into some other Anglicized habits if you know what I mean. So how can Antu sheth spend too much time there? Still, once Antu sheth swallowed all the insults and went to Mumbai to see his grandson. Came back looking like he had messed up a math problem."

"Every Dussehra and Diwali, Antu gets his son's love in the form of a money order. Not much, maybe 5-10 rupees. For a few days after that, Antu acts like he's won the lottery and splurges as much as he can. Which isn't much."

"Understandable." I said. "After all, how much can a ticket collector's pay be?"

"Yeah, the pay is pretty meager. But one hears that a ticket collector can also make a little more on the side, especially in holiday season if you know what I mean." Anna said. "Nothing wrong with it of course. If he has an opportunity to make some money, why shouldn't he? You know how it is in this country. If you get caught taking a ten rupee bribe, they put a striped cap on your head and send you to prison. But if you get caught taking a million rupee bribe, they put a Gandhi cap on your head and send you to Parliament! Democraticaly elected people's representative!"

Politics was the most favorite topic for Antu sheth and his buddies to express their unique opinions on. They had profound thoughts on every politician and party. One year, there was a famine in Konkan. Konkan is always facing a famine as it is. But this particular one was so bad that in Antu sheth's words it had "been approved under the Famine Act".

Nehru was touring the famine-hit parts of Konkan. He visited Ratnagiri for a speech and the whole town was caught up in Nehru-mania. One evening, someone asked Antu sheth,

"Antu sheth, I didn't see you at the speech?"

"Whose speech? Nehru's? Hmpf!" Antu sheth's disdain was obvious. "What nonsense. There's a famine here. Stop giving speeches. Give us food! This is like seeing a man drowning and instead of saving him, reading from the Quran to ensure that he doesn't end up in hell. Utterly useless. But everyone else is stupid. Oh, Nehru is here? He is giving a speech? He gives great speeches! Let's go! Bloody lemmings!"

"And now that Nehru is in Ratnagiri, what did they do? Idiots took him to show the house, room, and bed where Lokmanya Tilak was born! Morons. Tell me, did god appear in Gangadhar Tilak's dreams and tell him that your wife is going to give birth to a great leader? How would anyone even remember what bed Tilak was born on? But who cares? They just showed Nehru some random room and bed and bluffed - this is where Tilak first went WAAAAAAAAAA."

"Morons! Where's the proof? Where's the proof? Did they get the midwife from Tilak's birth to certify the bed? Hmpf! Forget Tilak. It's been a 100 years since he was born. You tell me. Can your own mother confidently identify the room and the bed where she gave birth to you? Go ask her and then tell me about Nehru and Tilak."

And so ended the rant.

I always wondered if there was anything or anyone in the world that Antu sheth and his friends had respect for. If they ever had a polite dignified response for anything at all.      

Somebody's son became a Professor. And Antu's response,

"Professor? In a circus?There used to be this Professor Chhatre in circuses performing magic tricks."

Someone opened a new store. And Antu's response,

"Tell him to have a bankruptcy form ready. It'll save time when the inevitable happens."

Who knows what school of philosophy these guys followed. More than half of them survived on money orders from children and relatives. They saved money from that and file lawsuits for the strangest reasons. Every lawsuit is stuck in delayed hearing dates. These guys have a big beautiful sea coast, coconut trees, gardens, everything you could reasonably hope for to be happy. But that apparent prosperity gets punctured by an occasional bout of misfortune and all that remains is an impenetrable shield of gallows humor.

Somehow the topic of Gandhi came up. And Antu sheth got on his soap box.

"Gandhi? What Gandhi? Traveled all over the world, but never came to Ratnagiri! Because he was smart. He knew that here, no one gives a damn about his loincloth or his walking stick. We are all just as naked and just as skinny. And his obsession with spinning khadi. It's all useless. Our own Shambhu sheth. All his life, he followed Gandhi's teachings and spun khadi for his clothes. Forget the British government, even Ratnagiri's Collector Gilligan didn't fear his "civil disobedience". And you're talking about Gandhi."

"Then there are all his hunger strikes and fasts. Half of Konkan is hungry and fasting, and not by choice. Someone who is well-fed will find something remarkable about hunger strikes. What do we care? Don't get me wrong. I am not saying Gandhi wasn't a great man. He was. But in our books, under what column should we make an entry for his greatness? And if you are talking about independence, then that had nothing to do with Gandhi, or Tilak or Savarkar."

"So did independence just fall out of the sky?" I asked him.

"It's up to you to find out where it fell out of." Antu replied. "One thing I am sure of is that the Brits left because they got bored. What more was left for them to loot? Their Raj business started making a loss, so they effectively declared bankruptcy and went home. The potter left with his pottery, and we sit here cradling his leftover broken pieces. This is all just a cycle of life and bigger than anything we can comprehend. It's not British rule, nor is it Nehru's rule, nor people's rule, nor anyone's rule. It's the creator's rule."  

"So how did your creator end up siding with the British?" I asked.

"Don't be silly. The creator is sitting pretty on his throne. He just played a small game."

"A game that translated into 150 years of slavery?"

"It's 150 years for you and me." Antu sheth was steadfast. "The almighty's wrist watch doesn't move forward by even one second unless a thousand years go by for us. In his eyes and on his scale, all this is just a minor game that lasted barely a millisecond."

When these emaciated old men started spouting this philosophy on the front yards of that impoverished middle lane in Ratnagiri, with dark shadows formed by the dim light of their age-worn oil lamps dancing on their wrinkled faces, my heart couldn't help but shudder.

"Socialism? What socialism? All nonsense, I tell you. Not even two mango leaves are alike. And these guys want to pretend all men are equal. In the creator's eyes, each individual is unique. How are they going to have equal opportunities or equal outcomes? But everyone is just blabbering....socialism is coming. Just like that Ratnagiri's legislator is saying...Konkan Railway is coming, Konkan Railway is coming. Sure, Konkan Railway is coming. And it's tracks are going through where one-armed Pandu Gurav's toilet used to be. Even if it does, is it going to make Pandu's shoulder stump sprout an arm? What difference will it make?"

"And without an arm to plow his field or pick his crops, no matter what you do with that damn railway, what good is it going to do him? He is still the same. Just because India became independent, does not mean that Hari Sathe's lazy eye got fixed. Nor did Mahadev Godbole's paunch disappear.  Nothing really changed. Even in the fabled Ram Rajya, Ram didn't uproot Hanuman's tail and attach it to his own ass. No. Ram stayed a man, and Hanuman stayed a monkey."

At such times, it almost seem like the Goddess of Wisdom Saraswati is sitting on Antu sheth's tongue.

"You're right." I said.

"Don't just say I am right for the heck of it to be polite. If I am wrong, say that and correct me. You might be younger than me when it comes to age, but when it comes to education, you are my elder, jawaibapu!"

Once in a while, Antu sheth will say something genuinely from his heart, without any sarcasm. But there is always some burning issue close to his heart underlying what he says.

The last few years, I could not go to Ratnagiri as often as I used to. In the meanwhile, Ratnagiri finally got electricity, its own college, tar roads, and all other features of 20th century life. When I met him after that, I said,

"Antu sheth, your Ratnagiri has now become posh! Electric lights and everything. Did your house get an electric connection?"

"No, not yet. But it's good that it's dark. Tomorrow even if I do get electricity, what is there to look at in that bright light? A penniless life? Who needs electricity to look at chipped walls and leaking shingles? It's better that my poverty stays hidden in darkness."

And then he laughed loudly for a full minute like it was a joke.

This time I saw that his teeth had gone almost completely Annu Gogte. I also learned that a couple of more friends of his had passed on and that the card game court was emptier than ever. For a change, I spotted a sense of love, longing, and kindness in the way Antu sheth spoke. I guess the empty seats at his card games were starting to make a place in his heart.

"Joglekar's son got a big promotion and moved to Delhi!" Antu sheth voluntarily shared some pleasant news without his customary sarcastic rejoinder. "Took his old man to Kashi, Haridwar, Vishweshwar, Hrishikesh and all. Fed a 100 brahmins there. Old man Joglekar was thoughtful enough to get me a small sealed pot with water from the Ganga. When you come visit next time, jawaibapu, you'll probably see that the seal has been broken and the water was poured down my throat if you know what I mean."

The next time I visited Ratnagiri, fortunately Antu sheth's Ganga water pot was still sealed.

"Wow, jawaibapu, wow! Congratulations! I heard you're going to England! Congratulations! Have a great trip. Just one "request" for you. Now I have to speak with you in English. So a "request"."

"What request?"

"Go see the Kohinoor diamond once. For some reason, it's an obsession I have always had, the Kohinoor diamond. I can't go see it, but you do it on my behalf. And then come back and tell me how it looks. See all the sights in London and Paris and everything!"

For some reason, I was overcome with a desire to touch his feet, something I had never done before. Right there on the street, I bent down and touched his feet.

"Live a long life!" Antu sheth touched my head gently. "You are a good person, which is why you are so successful."

I said goodbye and started to leave. I had barely gone four steps when I suddenly heard the familiar

"Jawaibapu!!!"

"Yes, Antu sheth?" I turned around.
  
"Forgot to ask you one thing. Are you going alone or with your wife?"

"Both of us are going."

"That's good. Don't mind me, I just had a nagging doubt, so I asked. You are going far away to learn something new. So I was reminded of Devayani's tale from mythology. Hahaha. Convey my blessings to your wife too. I am telling you, your good fortune is all because of her. That's all life is eventually about - the right woman."

Antu sheth paused and continued.

"Let me tell you something. Just between us. My wife passed away 40 years ago. Since then, the alphonso mango tree near my door has stopped flowering. When she was around, the tree yielded hundreds of mangoes every year. But since she left.....you know....fate can take really strange turns. Sorry, I am rambling. Anyway, safe travels. So when are you leaving from Ratnagiri?"

"Tomorrow morning by bus."

"Direct Ratnagiri to Mumbai?"

"Yes."

"Good call. Once someone completes that journey, then even traveling around the world seems easy in comparison. The other day Tatya Jog made the trip. He is still trying to locate all his bones.  Told me some 7-8 bones are missing!"

And he started laughing hard with his mouth wide open. I noticed that there was only one tooth remaining that hadn't gone Annu Gogte.

The next morning at 5 AM at the bus stand, I again heard the familiar cry,

"JAWAIBAPU!"

Antu sheth approached me and gave me a small paper pouch.

"I know you don't believe in god, jawaibapu, but do me a favor and keep this in your pocket. It is holy ash. It will keep you safe. You are going to London by air, so this small pouch shouldn't add too much weight to your luggage."

I put the pouch in my pocket. As the bus got going, I saw Antu sheth lift his shirt and gently wipe tears from his small blinking gray eyes. In that dim dawn light, seeing his bony chest and his concave stomach which had all but touched his back suddenly tugged at my heart.

Just like Konkan's jackfruit, it's people taste sweet only when they ripen for a long time.

          Why I Threw Away My Ferrari Gear   
I used to be an ardent Formula 1 fan. And an ardent Ferrari fan. Over the years, I lost interest in the sport. But occasionally I would still catch portions of a race on TV and in my heart, I was always cheering for a Ferrari win. On a recent trip to Europe, I bought some Ferrari gear to occasionally display my support.

This morning I threw all the Ferrari gear in trash. Because of this.

The background story in a nutshell is this. Two Italian navy sailors killed two innocent Indian fishermen in Indian waters (the Italians dispute the jurisdiction). India arrested and charged the sailors. The Italian government has been supporting these murderers. So has the Italian media. Note that they're not denying that the sailors killed those innocent fishermen. They still want the Indian government to let the sailors go. Why? The reasoning is flimsy and convoluted and in my opinion can be summarized as "Because!". The arrogance and the racist undertones in Italy's stance are obvious to me and many others. To me, the subtext is, "yes, our boys killed two guys by mistake. But they were just a couple of brown fishermen. Let our boys go! Give them back to us and we'll give them a slap on the wrist. You Indians have no right to try someone who killed your citizens". Do you think that if the fishermen had been Americans killed off the coast of America, the Italians would dare be this brazenly arrogant?

And in a sickening display of further arrogance and willful insensitivity, Ferrari decided to inject itself into the situation. The Formula 1 Indian Grand Prix is this weekend. Ferrari has announced it will carry an Italian Navy flag specifically in support of the two murderous sailors. It's not like Ferrari has been carrying the flag throughout the season. They're doing this only in India. They're not even using the pretext of just supporting the Italian navy in general. Their statements specifically mention support for the murderers. To me this is a small scale version of a British team carrying the flag of General Dyer's regiment only in India to express solidarity with his actions in Jalianwala Bag. Or some other European team supporting one of their fellow citizens who has been locked up in Goa for abusing street kids.

Ferrari is wrong for needlessly wading into this debate specifically during the Indian GP. But more importantly, they are absolutely wrong in supporting those two murderers whose crime, I repeat, is not even in doubt.

As an Indian, I find Ferrari's stance reprehensible and I cannot in good conscience support them in the slightest. So I threw away my Ferrari gear. I hope Indian fans who go watch the race on Sunday are not so slavishly beholden to the team and so morally bankrupt and insensitive as to wear caps or t-shirts supporting these proud backers of murderers.


          Translating a Raj Thackeray Speech   
I don't agree with Raj Thackeray's stance against immigrants from UP and Bihar. I can sort of, kind of, see where he is coming from, but I don't agree with the conclusion. And I find his forcible and occasionally violent methods to have his way (especially against powerless shopkeepers and job applicants) abhorrent.

However, as a Marathi person, I find the gap between what he says in Marathi and what is reported in the national media to be suspiciously wide. There are two problems. First, they wrongly translate a lot of what he says. Second, they seem to pick and choose the most provocative bits that can be spun into an attention-grabbing soundbite. I have written about the dangers of this phenomenon before.

Today Raj Thackeray led a rally to Azad Maidan (without permission from the police top brass) as a protest against the August 11 incident. He gave a speech there. Again, I marveled at the difference between what he was saying and what the national media was reporting he was saying.

So I had an idea. I have translated PuLa Deshpande's work before. Surely I can translate a speech. So here it is, the speech in Marathi, and then, what I think is an objective, unbiased, and direct translation in English. This is not an endorsement of what he said. Just a translation for illustrative purposes. I agree with some parts, and disagree with some. I'll leave you to judge it for yourself.

Note - I am translating it in a bit of a hurry. So please forgive any typos or inadvertent grammatical errors.



When it's an institution from Maharashtra, be it a police department, a media company, or anything else.... even just a person from Maharashtra....we should demonstrate the strength to ensure that no one ever looks askance at them again with the intention of harming them.

For the last two days, this has been going on... police officials come to me and ask, how will you take the rally from Girgaum chaupatty? I told them we'll walk.

(crowd laughs)

Then they're like, you can't go from here, you can't go from there...all these efforts at putting obstacles in our way have been spearheaded by Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik. I found out the other day..... in fact a few police officials told me this...that they'll try to stop our cars, and try other things to stop us. I called the Chief Minister right away, and asked him, what is this? What happens or doesn't happen (at the rally) is something we can deal with later. But can't we express our protest in a democratic way with a rally?

Why stop us at every point? I assured them at our rally will be a peaceful one, and they still refused us permission for it? And they had no problems giving permission for that Raza Academy rally? But here we are, with a rally to protest what happened the other day right here, and they refuse us permission?

Then there's (Home Minister) R.R. Patil who says - we won't spare anyone who threatens the law and order of the city. Really? So what happened that day? Was his tail between his legs?

(crowd laughs)

The other day he calls up (MNS MLA from Mumbai) Bala Nandgaonkar and says, "What could I do? What was I supposed to do? Was I supposed to take a big stick and stand there?"

(crowd laughs)

There is this one boundary line....one border....one line that cannot be crossed. I have never crossed that line, and will never cross that line. Never raise your hands against the police.

(crowd applauds and cheers)

If you demoralize the police to such an extent, then where will the common man go with his problems? Where will he go? If this keeps happening, tomorrow even the police will say "we don't want to get involved here, do whatever you want".

Is this how a state is run? And this Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik. The cops caught the guilty people. And what does he say to the DCP who arrested the guilty people? He says, "You bastard, let them go!" He tells him to let the criminals go!

Our policewomen sisters were tormented here... they were pulled aside and beaten up and molested......all these guys, our Marathi police constables, were getting beaten up... and they weren't getting any orders?

Oh, and these (police head honchos) knew everything from the beginning. They knew that there were trains full of these goons coming for the rally. And they had choppers, and rods and everything else... tell me, are there ever any rocks lying around here (in Azad Maidan)? Where did the rocks come from?

These people had advance warning of all these facts, and they still ignored them. And they refuse permission for my peaceful rally? The other day, when some police officials came to meet me, I told them. I told them that the 11th August rally at least had targets. That mob knew that it was supposed to target the police and the media.

Who do we want to target (in this rally)? I have already declared our targets. Arup Patnaik, resign! R.R. Patil, resign! I declared this in the beginning itself.

We have not come here to destroy cars or set something on fire. We don't even wish to do all that. Even if we were to, whose cars would we destroy and whose property would we set on fire? Our own? Those belonging to our citizens from Mumbai and Maharashtra? This rally isn't for such purposes.

But how else are we supposed to express our anger? They won't let us express our anger at whatever happened. And they say, please respect democracy. This is democracy?

Go and look at the track record of Raza Academy and its rallies. A few years ago, this same Raza Academy had a rally in Bhiwandi. This bhadva (translates to 'pimp' but pimp doesn't have the same punch :)) Abu Asim Azmi went to that rally. He gave a speech there, that too an inflammatory speech. And they're sending me notices - "don't make inflammatory speeches". That Abu Azmi went there, made an inflammatory speech in Bhiwandi. You know what happened next?

The mob killed two police constables by bashing their heads in with big rocks. Then they cut off their private parts and threw their corpses into burning buses..... the government had no problems with that. And they refuse me permission for a rally?

Whoever came here (on 11t August) had no connection with Maharashtra. They all came from outside Maharashtra.

(crowd applauds and cheers)

After everything that went down here that day, this passport was found, a Bangladeshi passport...

(shows a Bangladeshi passport to the crowd)

This was found right here. Single entry passport (I assume he meant visa). Needed only to come into India. No intentions of going back, so it was thrown away here...

(throws it away)

There are countless such people coming into Maharashtra... they are all setting up their bases in Maharashtra. Tell me something....they say 'coincidence'....what coincidence?

In 1992 when the Babri Masjid was demolished, where was its retaliation felt instantly? In Mumbai! There was no violence anywhere else in the country (GS: this isn't true...there were riots in many other cities)...only in Mumbai! And when this incident happened during the rally on 11th August, its reaction happened in Lucknow in Uttar Pradesh. So something happens in Uttar Pradesh, there's a reaction in Mumbai, and something happens in Mumbai, there's a reaction in Uttar Pradesh. Doesn't India have any other states???

The reason is, all these people are coming here from there. All these Pakistanis and Bangladeshis who have infiltrated and set up bases in Uttar Pradesh and Bihar and Jharkhand, they're all coming here by the trainfuls. And the bases that they are setting up here in Mumbai, those are going to create trouble for us in the future.

Otherwise tell me, this Abu Azmi is elected from two different constituencies in Maharashtra. Two different constituencies? Should any politician from Maharashtra get elected from two different constituencies? He gets elected from two constituencies because all the people in those two constituencies have all come from outside, and they vote for him.

That day, it finally came to the police (couldn't understand the word he said here despite re-playing it many times, at 12:20)...then they had to do it. While doing that, the guy who died, Abu Azmi announced 1.5 lakh rupees for him. So why not for our policemen?

(crowd applauds and cheers)

Even the state government hasn't announced anything yet. No announcements from the state government that they are going to provide compensation for those who were hurt or troubled in those events. Nothing. Nope, just get beaten up.

Why didn't R.R. Patil speak up then? He threatens us.... anyway, what's the point in threatening us? It's almost time for us (and him...a pun) to leave now.

(crowd laughs)

They don't think about anything that has already happened or what may happen. They don't do anything useful. Just get the cops beaten up. Anyone will come, drag our cops away, and beat them up?

The other day when they had that rally in Uttar Pradesh, rioted, destroyed property and all. The ones who did that were also all from outside - Pakistani Muslims and Bangladeshi Muslims. They all poured out into the streets. And what did they do? They defaced a statue of Gautam Buddha. Everyone saw it. Everyone saw pictures, saw it on TV.

Where is Mayawati? Where is that Ramdas Athavale? Where is R.S. Gavai? Where is Prakash Ambedkar? Why are they all silent? All they're obsessed with, as if possessed by a ghost, is Indu Mills Indu Mills Indu Mills Indu Mills. Don't they have anything else to do? What do they want to build in Indu Mills - a bungalow?

Why aren't they talking now? But no one will talk about these things now. They're not ready to utter a word. It's been so many days since the (11th August) incident. But there has been no statement about it from Ramdas Athavale. No statements from R.S. Gavai or Prakash Ambedkar or Mayawati, or anyone else. Nothing. Cat's got everyone's tongues.

This Mumbai Police Comissioner.....he has a "favorite" (that's the word he used) officer Dhoble. The other day, he takes a hockey stick and goes to that...what was that..juice center bar... juice center something...where did he go?

(crowd prompts)

Yes, Amar Juice Center. Is that a place to take a hockey stick to? Take your wife, your kids, I can understand, but a hockey stick? He takes a hockey stick there and beats up innocent people with that hockey stick? And what's his defense? He found drugs there....then why didn't he shut it down?

And this idiot...Police Commissioner Arup Patnaik....what's his explanation? He says Dhoble was on his way to play hockey and stopped over at the juice center. Tomorrow, if someone has gone for his honeymoon. So will he just turn up there naked?

(crowd laughs and cheers)

So Patnaik will go out of his way to protect Dhoble! Because Dhoble is his "favorite". And here (in Azad Maidan) when cops were waiting for orders to tackle the mob.....if not firing, at least give us orders for a lathi charge.... at that time Patnaik had nothing to say. And when our police officers were catching the guilty culprits, Patnaik abuses the officers, calling them "bastards"? He is demoralizing cops to such an extent?

This won't be allowed to happen in Maharashtra anymore. I only want to say one thing to R.R. Patil and Arup Patnaik. Even if you have a little bit of shame left...even a minuscule amount of shame left.... then resign. If you have even the slightest bit of shame left.

For the last two days, some newspapers have been saying - "Raj Thackeray's Maharashtra Navnirman Sena is now moving towards Hindutva". Whoever raises his hands against a cop, whatever his religion, he should be bashed up wherever he is.

When my own party's MLA was bashed up....Harshavaradhan Jadhav.....is he here?  When Harshavardhan was bashed up.... I gave the orders for him to be bashed up... would he have been bashed up otherwise? When I gave a speech at that time, I said the same thing. Harshavaradhan, no matter what happens, you DO NOT raise your hands against a policeman. Never raise your hands against a cop.

This has nothing to do with religion. All the constables who were here, all my policewomen sisters...the female cops... I consider them all my Marathi brothers and Marathi sisters. I have come out on the streets here for them.

The rally that day (11th August) was organized by Muslims and today I have organized a protest rally against it.... so immediately they're jumping to the conclusion that I am "moving towards Hindutva"? I only understand...this Raj Thackeray only understands one religion...and that is Maharashtra religion. I don't understand any religion except that one. No one dare cross this Maharashtra religion. No one dare think of harming it.

And today's rally is only to boost the morale of the police and to provide wholehearted support to the police.  Along with them, we have people from the media here. Media vans were attacked, burnt, photographers were beaten up.... this rally is to express support for all of them too.

I thank you all for the tremendous response to this rally. If ever such events reoccur, we must stand together in strength like this.

When you're going back...all of you, when you're going back...keep in mind and make absolutely sure that you don't indulge in any sort of untoward activities. Go back in an orderly and peaceful manner to wherever you came from.

I hope that in the future whenever I call upon you, you will return with the same enthusiasm. And now I take your leave.

Jai Hind! Jai Maharashtra!

          Slain schoolboy’s uncle calls death on killers   

An uncle of murdered schoolboy Videsh Subar believes the men responsible for slitting his nephew’s throat and that of his neighbour Hafeeza Rose Mohammed should die a slow and painful death.

Speaking to the media at the Forensic Science Centre, St James, yesterday, Chandrakha Koon Koon said even if the men are held by police they should not bring them in alive.

“The boy’s mother is mad at the world right now. I believe no child should die like that and I wish they find the perpetrators and my wish is they don’t bring them in alive. I hope it comes through, this is really hard. This is a nightmare!” Koon Koon  said.

He added: “I wish them a slow, slow death. Things like this does create criminals! If you know the kind of things going through my mind right now. I wish no parents would go through this.”

Koon Koon said Subar, an aspiring musician, was looking forward to his first trip abroad to Canada with the family. He said the tickets had already been bought for the August 4 departure. The only child to his parents Lennon and Veena, Subar played three instruments, the flute, maracas (chac chac) and the tassa drum and was a lover of parang music.

Koon Koon said the night before the incident he asked Subar to spend the night at a relative and was reflecting on whether he could have been more convincing. He added that his nephew would have been a great leader in the country.

According to the autopsy done by pathologist Dr. Valery Alexandrov, both Subar and Mohammed received “mirror wounds” to the neck spanning from ear to ear. The gash on Subar’s neck was so deep it cut one of his vertebrae. Both were bound and gagged using items in the home. Mohammed’s hands were bound with the cord of a telephone charger and her bra while her feet were bound with a bed sheet. Subar’s hands were bound with a shoe lace and his feet with a rubber chord. His mouth was taped with clear scotch tape.

Police said they received critical information on the case and are confident of an arrest. On Wednesday police said they suspected the killings were linked to a nearly decade-old robbery. But yesterday, they said checks to their records of eight years ago revealed no reports of a break-in at Mohammed’s Ajim Baskh Street, Malabar home.


          Suspect goes to hospital with gunshot wound after struggle with victim   

A man in Deerfield Beach sought help at Delray Medical Center after he was shot during an altercation with another shooting victim who was wrestling for the suspect's gun, according to a Broward Sheriff's Office report.

Laquan Miller was arrested Thursday on a charge of attempted first-degree murder.

Deputies said Miller shot Willie Washington twice on the morning of June 22 at 216 NW First Terrace in Deerfield Beach.

Washington was found lying on the sidewalk with two life-threatening gunshot wounds, deputies said.

According to the report, a deputy was contacted by a member of the violent crimes unit to respond to the shooting. The deputy met with Washington at Broward Health North, where the victim was being treated.

Minutes later, Miller was dropped off at Delray Medical Center in Delray Beach. He gave a false name and stated that he shot himself, the report said. His involvement was unknown at the time.

During questioning, he told Delray Beach police officers his real identity and said that he had been shot during a physical altercation at a nearby park.

A few hours later, it was determined that Miller had a gun and shot Washington two times. As Washington fought back and struggled for the weapon, Miller was shot.

Deputies said that there was probable cause to charge Miller with attempted murder.

          Warner: Why is US Soccer absolved?   

Former FIFA vice-president Jack Warner has told The Times that the Garcia report into corruption around the 2018 and 2022 World Cup bids is “not even worth the paper it has been written on” and questioned why U.S. Soccer was absolved after he and Sepp Blatter met President Barack Obama.

The report, produced by American lawyer Michael J. Garcia in 2014 but only released in full this week, said the England 2018 World Cup bid team was found to have “accommodated or at least attempted to satisfy the improper request”of executive committee members, including Warner, ahead of the voting in 2010.

The United States’ effort to host the 2022 World Cup, meanwhile, was found to have generally followed FIFA’s bidding rules.

Warner, who was arrested and charged as part of the FBI’s probe into money-laundering in 2015 and then banned from taking part in any football-related activity for life, told the English newspaper in an email that he continues to “sleep very soundly” following the report’s release.

He wrote in an email: “For me the report is not even worth the paper it has been written on and of course not the whopping fee paid for it either. As it relates to me personally, I continue to sleep very soundly at nights for nothing in the report implicates me personally in any sleaze.”

The investigation found that Warner had requested England 2018 to find his “adopted son” Richard Sebro, a man with no obvious football credentials, a job with Tottenham, then at Wembley, before moving to Aston Villa.

Other favours granted to Warner were the waiving of a £168,000 debt owed to the Football Association by the Jamaican Football Federation and the sponsorship of a £36,000 Caribbean Football Union gala dinner.

Undisclosed “favours and benefits” were also granted by the FA to a team Warner owned — Joe Public Football Club.

Warner told The Times that all the requests he made to the English FA were “for other persons or entities and never for my family or me.”

He also questioned the decision to absolve the U.S. bidding team, citing a visit that he and then FIFA president Blatter had made to the Oval Office in 2009.

He wrote: “I have also taken note that the American investigator has absolved the US Soccer Federation and I ask myself how come? Was this not the same USSF that facilitated a visit to the White House for Sepp and me to meet Obama? How do you characterise that?

“Was this not the same USSF that arranged for [then Confederation of African Football president Issa] Hayatou and his Ex Co members to do the same? But then again this is the US that I guess determines if you fall, live or die.”

Meanwhile, the Serious Fraud Office in the United Kingdom is analysing the Garcia report.

The decisions to award Russia the 2018 World Cup and Qatar the 2022 edition have been dogged by allegations of bribery and corruption since they were made in December 2010.

An SFO spokesperson said: “The SFO is reviewing the Garcia Report. We can make no further comment at this stage.”

Confirmation of the SFO’s interest comes 20 months after its director, David Green, told MPs of potential money-laundering offences, including a payment of 500,000 Australian dollars (£295,000) made by the Australia 2022 bid committee to former CONCACAF president Warner, which may have gone through London.

At the time, Green, who was giving evidence to the Culture, Media and Sport select committee, said the SFO “cannot touch FIFA with the Bribery Act as things stand” as it became law in July 2011 and most of the World Cup allegations took place before then.

In October 2015, the SFO had a team of five going through more than 1,600 documents provided by the FA relating to England’s failed 2018 bid.

          Get in the right mood   

Cobalty Isle has a clear edge in an ‘aged’ Maiden Stakes over seven furlongs of Newcastle tapeta and recent losses should be recouped if Henry Candy has got the distance right.

This twice-raced Kodiac, running in colours of his trainer, has only raced over six but ran on strongly when ‘hunting up’ our recent winning nap, Think Fashion, on a good, fast Windsor surface eighteen days back. Cobalty Isle was a heavily-backed favourite.

On my time-handicap Cobalty Isle improved on a promising debut, comes out several pounds clear of once-raced, Roger Varian-trained Tamih and rates a solid each-way bet under Fergus Sweeney, the third jockey to be booked.

Candy, like myself, likes consistency where jockeys are concerned, chopping and changing isn’t for him but the sheer volume of race-meetings nowadays means it’s difficult to book a preference.

Too much racing causes so many problems throughout the industry but we’re stuck with a desperate situation which wont improve while bookmakers control the fixture list.

Earlier Godolphin-owned Glittering Jewel is strongly-fancied for a competitive 3-y-o Maiden Stakes over ten furlongs of ‘good to soft’ Doncaster and man-of-the-moment, William Buick, again partners Charlie Appleby’s charge, this superbly-bred Bernadini filly needs to win for stud value purposes.

No ‘cert’ by any means but again it’s difficult to envisage Glittering Jewel out of the frame and the aforementioned selections will comprise an each-way double and indeed a treble for those sticking with our daily patent which so nearly rocked the betting industry on Tuesday at Leicester.

Rhosneigr, a 6/1 shot, looked certain to complete our DP ‘full house’ and amass one hundred and fifty points, when swerving away a winning chance in the final 100 yards under David Probert, why did he suddenly give his inexperienced mount a left-handed crack at a time when pushing would definitely have sufficed?

Yarmouth kicks-off its seven-race programme on a ‘soft’ surface with a five-runner Novice Stakes over six furlongs; twice-raced Jellmood is a ‘special’ from Marco Botti’s in-form Newmarket yard and should be backed accordingly. What beats him will win!

 


          Now, Windies Women beaten by India   

TAUNTON, England –

Once again, the Caribbean side struggled with both bat and ball to slump to second loss in four days and extend their losing streak on tour to seven straight including warm-up matches, leaving their campaign at the crossroads.

Sent in at County Ground, the Windies rallied to 183 for eight off their 50 overs with Hayley Matthews top-scoring with 43, Afy Fletcher hitting an invaluable unbeaten 36 and Shanel Daley, 33.

At one stage, they were slumping at 121 for seven in the 40th before Fletcher at number nine provided late resistance with bold striking.

India’s slow bowlers turned the screws on West Indies with off-spinners Deepti Sharma (2-27) and Harmanpreet Kaur (2-42), along with leg-spinner Poonam Yadav (2-19) all finishing with two wickets each.

In reply, India stormed to their target courtesy of a superb unbeaten hundred from left-handed opener Smriti Mandhana who ended on 106 not out, while captain Mitahli Raj chipped in with 46.

The Windies struck with the fifth ball of the innings when fast bowler Shamilia Connell had Punam Raut caught at the wicket of a top edge without a run on the board.

And when off-spinner Stafanie Taylor bowled Sharma for six at 33 for two in the eighth, the game became wide open as a contest.

But 20-year-old Mandhana carved out her second one-day hundred, hitting 13 fours and two sixes in a 108-ball knock, as she put on a match-winning 103 for the third wicket with Raj whose innings came from 88 deliveries and included three fours.

When Raj mis-hit a full toss from off-spinner Matthews to Fletcher at mid-off in the 34th over, Mandhana combined with Mona Meshram (18 not out) in an unbroken 45-run, fourth wicket stand which saw India to their second straight win.

They lie second on four points in the eight-team standings behind defending champions Australia Women who are also on four points, with West Indies languishing sixth without a point – along with Sri Lanka Women and Pakistan Women.

Hoping to turn the page on a tame batting effort in their opener against Australia last Monday, the Windies managed only more of the same.

Rookie Felicia Walters scratched around 27 balls for her nine before nicking a swish at a wide delivery from left-arm spinner Ekta Bisht and going caught behind at 29 for one in the seventh over.

Matthews, who looked in fine touch, then dominated a 40-run second wicket stand with captain Taylor who made 16, as West Indies eased to 69 without further loss.

The right-handed Matthews struck seven delightful boundaries on both sides of the wicket in an attractive 57-ball innings before perishing in the 19th over to a tame return catch off Sharma.

With her gone, West Indies lost their way as five wickets crashed for just 22 runs. Taylor and Deandra Dottin (7), both appearing in their landmark 100th ODI, never looked the part and each soaked up a plethora of deliveries without hitting a single boundary.

Taylor faced 42 balls before going run out by Mandhana’s direct hit at the non-striker’s end in the 21st at 70 for three and Dottin laboured for 48 deliveries before picking out long-on with Yadav in the 34th over, with her first shot in anger at 91 for five.

In between, Merissa Aguilleira missed a charge at Yadav and was smartly stumped for six at 80 for four in the 28th over. When Kaur removed both Kyshona Knight (5) and Chedean Nation (12), the Windies were in strife at 121 for seven but Daley and then Fletcher arrived to rescue the innings.

The left-handed Daley struck five fours off 37 balls while the brave Fletcher faced just 23 deliveries and cracked five fours – three of which came in the final over off Kaur which leaked 18 runs.

West Indies have little time to turn their form around as they take on South Africa in Leicester on Sunday. (CMC)


          If something comes up again I’ll act: PM   

Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley yesterday defended his re-appointment of Marlene McDonald to his Cabinet. In fact, he said her return as Public Utilities Minister came at an opportune time.

However, Rowley assured that reassigning Fitzgerald Hinds as Minister in the Ministry of the Attorney General and Legal Affairs was not a demotion.

At the post-Cabinet media briefing at the Diplomatic Centre, St Ann’s, Rowley spoke about the impromptu Cabinet reshuffle—his second since assuming office in September 2015.

Asked if McDonald’s return was a way of expressing confidence in her, given the fact there were a series of allegations made against her which were investigated by the Integrity Commission, Rowley said it was a matter that needed to be looked at.

Having been elected as Port-of-Spain South MP in 2015, Rowley said McDonald was appointed to the Cabinet after serving as Opposition Chief Whip. In early 2015, he said “certain persons were making some very disturbing allegations against Miss McDonald.”

Last March, Mc Donald was fired from the Cabinet following media revelations that she had employed her common-law husband Michael Carew in her Port-of-Spain South constituency office. A report from Fixin T&T head Kirk Waithe stated he received information from Parliament which showed Carew and a director of the Calabar Foundation were employed at McDonald’s constituency office for five years, while Carew’s brother Lennox Carew still worked at the MP’s office.

McDonald’s common-law husband, who worked at the office from June 1, 2010 to September 7, 2015, had earned a salary of $13,400 for the full parliamentary term while Lennox began working in the office on March 1, 2011 and had been in receipt of $14,000.

But Rowley said it was the allegation of how McDonald conducted herself in the Ministry of Housing which forced him to ask her to remove herself as a minister so the Integrity Commission investigate. When the allegation surfaced, he said there was information “which persons were prosecuting to the point of persecuting about how she conducted herself in the Ministry of Housing. It was alleged that she was buying houses in the Ministry of Housing in other people’s names and they identified the names and individuals… and she had a relationship with and so on. That, was an area I found required the removal of Miss McDonald so to allow the investigation to take place.”

To the best of his knowledge, Rowley said investigations had taken place and the commission had indicated to Mc Donald that “they had found no basis to conclude that she had breached the Integrity in Public Life Act on this package of investigations and probably others. On that basis, I as Prime Minister have no difficulty in reappointing Miss McDonald in the Cabinet. Of course, that would displease some people who believe what pleases them should happen.”

Rowley said in the future if something else surfaces against McDonald he would deal with it.

Asked if Hinds’ shifting was a demotion, Rowley said he was “very versatile and is a tremendous asset to the Cabinet and Government.” This was Hinds’ second realignment by Rowley. He was first removed from the Ministry of Works and Transport and put to manage the Ministry of Public Utilities, which McDonald is now in charge of.

But the PM said Hinds has expertise in Constitutional and criminal law and as a former policeman, he was ideally suited to work in the AG’s office. He said, however, that Stuart Young will continue to hold the position as Minister in the Ministry of the AG and Legal Affairs as well.

Rowley said Government intended to have a very robust legislative programme in which Hinds will play an integral role.


          Construction of Singapore's 4th desalination plant begins in Marina East   
Liyana Othman Channel NewsAsia 29 Jun 17; SINGAPORE: The construction of Singapore's fourth desalination plant began on Thursday (Jun 29) in Marina East. It is the first dual-mode desalination plant, meaning it can treat both freshwater from the Marina Reservoir and seawater, depending on weather conditions. Currently, freshwater from reservoirs is processed at eight water works across Singapore, while seawater is treated at SingSpring and Tuaspring desalination plants. On rainy days when water levels in the reservoirs are high, the excess rainwater will be discharged into the sea. But...

          A Separate Thread for Gary Gaulin   
Post by GaryGaulin
I just went over the article, and can add:

Quote
Relatedly, Penfield observed that spontaneous electrical discharges in the brain cause involuntary sensations and movements and even emotions, but never abstract reasoning or calculation. There are no “calculus” seizures or “moral” seizures, in which patients involuntarily take second derivatives or ponder mercy.


The above is expected, from a vector mapped movement based system.

Quote
Similar observations emerge from Roger Sperry’s famous studies of patients who had undergone surgery to disconnect the hemispheres of the brain. This was done to prevent seizures. The post-operative patients experienced peculiar perceptual and behavioral changes, but they retained unity of personal identity—a unified intellect and will. The changes Sperry discovered in his research (for which he won a Nobel Prize) were so subtle as to pass unnoticed in everyday life.


It is not normal for one hand to keep trying to light a cigarette while the other hand keeps throwing it away. That and other examples of the known side effects of corpus callosotomy surgery indicates that the patients did not fully retain their "unity".

Quote
In the past decade, British researcher Adrian Owen has found using fMRI imaging that some patients with such severe brain damage that they are considered to be in a persistent vegetative state are actually capable of sophisticated thought. The “comatose” patients’ brain scans show that, in reply to questions by an examiner, the patients are in fact thinking and imagining.


The above is also expected, from what at least I have for a model. The important part needed for imagination is at the end of the brain stem, not all the optional add-ons that surround it.

          Voting Fights in the States   
AP Photo/Andrew Selsky

Oregon Governor Kate Brown, at podium, celebrates Oregon's first year of an automatic voter registration program with a news conference, where she said that in the November election, over 97,000 ballots were cast by new voters registered by the so-called motor voter program. Hazelnuts contained in the bags in the foreground represent the 270,000 Oregonians who were registered to vote by the program. 

The national battle over voting rights and “voter fraud” will play out in Washington over the next months in relation to the Kobach-Pence commission and the resistance to it. But in the meantime, issues have been joined this spring in state legislative sessions around the country. And the resulting scorecard may surprise you.

Back in November, when the dust settled after the election, the numbers on partisan control of legislatures seemed stark and frightening for advocates of voting rights and election reform. Republicans controlled both chambers in 31 states, and had the full “trifecta,” including the governor, in 24. In sharp contrast, Democrats controlled both houses in only 13 states, and had trifectas in a mere six. Looking at these numbers, at the post-Shelby decision absence of Voting Rights Act preclearance protections, and at the radically changed posture of the Justice Department, many feared an onslaught of voter-suppression legislation that would create an even more diminished electorate for the elections of 2018.

Well, it’s now the end of June, and while some legislatures are still in session, the great majority have finished their business for the year. Several states have indeed passed bad bills. But, overall, the results are significantly better, both in staving off voter-suppression efforts and in expanding voting rights and voting access, than one might have expected as the sessions began.

First, A Few Real Successes

Perhaps the most remarkable outcome this year is in Illinois, which has a Democratic legislature and a conservative Republican governor, Bruce Rauner. Last year, the legislature passed an automatic voter registration (AVR) bill with bipartisan support, but Rauner vetoed it. 

Under automatic voter registration, people who go to the DMV, and potentially other agencies as well, are automatically put on the voter roll, unless they opt out. In Oregon, which was the first adopter, AVR has added several hundred thousand voters to the rolls.

In Illinois, an AVR bill was reintroduced this year and, remarkably, passed both chambers with unanimous votes. While Rauner has 60 days to sign the bill, all indications are that he will, joining Illinois with eight other states and the District of Columbia where AVR is being implemented, and showing that maybe, at least in Illinois, encouraging people to register and vote doesn’t seem like a partisan trick.

The victory was also the work of a broad and determined coalition of voting-rights and election-reform advocacy groups, under the rubric of Just Democracy. Brian Gladstein, Executive Director of Common Cause Illinois and one of the leaders of the coalition said:

This bill will bring over one million eligible voters into the electoral process in Illinois. During a time of heightened partisanship in Springfield and across the nation, we have demonstrated that breaking down barriers to the ballot box can be achieved and supported by both Democrats and Republicans.

AVR still has a good chance to pass in other states. In Rhode Island, an AVR bill passed the House unanimously and a positive vote in the Senate is expected shortly. Governor Gina Raimondo has said she will sign it if it comes to her desk. In Massachusetts, where the legislative session goes on all year, an AVR bill with 102 legislative sponsors has been heard in committee (23 speakers in favor and none against), and could be before the full legislature in the fall.

In some other states, AVR made headway but was eventually blocked. These include Maine, New Mexico, and Nevada. In Nevada’s case, the bill passed both houses, but was vetoed by Republican Governor Brian Sandoval. A ballot initiative on AVR now goes to the voters, who will have the chance to approve it in the November 2018 general election.

In addition to automatic voter registration, other real gains were made. Utah expanded opportunities for early voting and absentee voting. New Jersey improved its processes for military voters and Indiana improved its registration process at the motor vehicle department.

Another issue where progress was made, though halting and slow, is restoration of the right to vote for citizens with felony convictions. Forty-nine bills were introduced in 16 states to restore voting rights to formerly incarcerated people who have served their sentences. A real victory occurred in Wyoming, which enacted a bill providing that people who completed their sentence after January 1, 2010, do not need to submit an application for restoration of voting rights and will automatically be issued a certificate of restoration.

In Florida, where 1.7 million citizens can’t vote due to the state’s lifetime ban on voting by people with felony convictions (1.5 million have fully completed their sentences), the broad and bipartisan Florida Rights Restoration Coalition has made major strides. The Florida Supreme Court has approved language for a proposed ballot initiative to restore voting rights to ex-felons; now the job is collecting 700,000 signatures on the petition in order to be on the ballot in November 2018.

In Minnesota, the Restore the Vote Coalition got a bill to more effectively restore voting rights through one house of the legislature. And in Nebraska, the state’s conservative unicameral legislature passed a bill to restore voting rights to citizens upon release from incarceration by a 27-13 margin, but the bill was vetoed by Governor Pete Ricketts. (Nebraska voting-rights advocates also derailed a proposed constitutional amendment requiring voter ID.)

Now for the Bad News

To be clear, and clear-eyed, the move to make voting more difficult and restricted continues, and several states enacted laws designed to limit the vote in one way or another. The forces bent on restricting the vote have won significant victories over the last several years, though many of the laws have been successfully challenged in court. In fact, of the worst voter-restriction bills that passed this year, a majority were actually efforts to re-pass laws struck down in court, altered in order to make them more judicially acceptable.

·      Iowa enacted a law, championed by Secretary of State Paul Pate, which includes restrictions on voter-registration drives; hindrances to Election Day, early, and absentee voting; strict voter-ID requirements; and—most troublesome—the right to purge voter rolls of “non-citizen” names without any clarity on who and how such decisions to purge are made. This could lead to significant numbers of eligible voters being disenfranchised.

·      New Hampshire passed a bill restricting registration for students and low-income voters by requiring proof of residency for those who register 30 days before the election, with investigation and criminal penalties for failure to comply. (A component to eliminate same-day registration was dropped from the bill.)

·      In Arkansas, a voter-ID law, modified after courts struck down an earlier, similar law, was passed and signed. The law reinstates the requirement that a voter must provide one of a narrow choice of IDs at the polls. In addition, the legislature put a constitutional amendment requiring voter ID on the 2018 ballot.

·      In North Dakota, the only state that doesn’t require voter registration at all, the governor signed strict voter-ID requirements into law. The bill was softened somewhat, particularly in regard to the Native American community, to avoid the fate of the 2016 version of the law, which was struck down in court.

Why Less Carnage?

No one wants to be naïvely optimistic, or to underestimate how much damage has already been done in states by determined efforts at voter suppression. Racially charged and politically motivated efforts continue at every level to find ways to discourage people from registering and voting. In the wake of Shelby, these efforts have multiplied and will continue to do so.

But, overall, the results in the 2017 legislative sessions were not nearly as bad as seemed likely last November. There was not a deluge of major voter-suppression legislation. Some bad bills were passed, a number were weakened as they made their way through the legislative process, and a significant number were sidetracked along the way. Two main reasons for this seem clear.

First, the courts, both state and federal, have played a significant role in preventing extreme assaults on voting. Prodded by strong litigation efforts from voting-rights organizations, in state after state, courts have found voter-suppression efforts unconstitutional, blocking their implementation. In addition to the direct effects of the cases, their cumulative impact has been to caution and restrain advocates of restrictive legislation from overreaching.

Second, it is deeply encouraging to see the growing power, sophistication, and rapid response capabilities of the movement for an inclusive democracy. In state after state, coalitions were activated, or created, to fight back against the efforts to stifle, shrink, and bleach the vote. 

And the advocates didn’t just play defense. Despite the potentially unfavorable partisan makeup in so many states, the affirmative action for expanding the right and ability to vote continues to make headway—winning in some states, gathering momentum for future victories in others. 

And there is one other cause for optimism worth noting. I recently attended a conference of 200 legislators and election officials from around the country, co-convened by the National Conference of State Legislatures (NCSL) and the Democracy Fund. The focus of the event was election technology and administration. There was strong and bipartisan support for improving election machinery, combating the challenges of cybersecurity, and fighting for adequate funding to run elections in the best way possible. This is one of the reasons that online registration and automatic voter registration are making real progress; they are technical improvements as well as access expansions. The election officials take their responsibilities seriously, and if legislators, state and national, would take their cues, bipartisan progress just might become more possible.

          Un accident de la route rare tue deux chevaux et blesse deux cavaliers au sud de Toulouse   
C’est un accident rarissime qui a profondément choqué les victimes et les témoins, jeudi 22 juin à Montbrun-Lauragais, au sud de Toulouse, en Haute-Garonne. Deux chevaux sont morts percutés violemment par une voiture et deux cavalières ont été sérieusement blessées, sur la RD24 en direction de Corronsac.

Vers 22h45, un groupe de six cavaliers, escorté par une camionnette, quittait le marché nocturne organisé à Montbrun-Lauragais, petit village perché sur les collines entre le canal du Midi et la rivière Ariège. Les cavaliers, originaires de Venerque et habitués des lieux, rentraient chez eux en empruntant principalement des chemins "hormis un petit tronçon de route départementale, raconte Gérard Bolet, le maire de Montbrun-Lauragais. Ils circulaient sur le bas-côté, à gauche de la route pour faire face à d’éventuelles voitures comme le feraient des piétons", précise-t-il.

"Cette voiture a déboulé à toute vitesse"

À proximité, un groupe d’amis étaient attablés en terrasses alors que la canicule frappait la région en ce premier jour de l’été. "Nous avons distinctement entendu le clic clac des sabots sur le bitume. Nous avons alors vu un cortège de 6 chevaux montés par leurs cavaliers, éclairé par le camion blanc du propriétaire, phares et warnings allumés pour bien les signaler, raconte Christelle Segers, une des témoins de la scène. Chaque cavalier portait un gilet réfléchissant jaune et une bombe sur la tête. Ce convoi était parfaitement visible et se déplaçait calmement au pas". Un équipement vivement recommandé mais pas obligatoire.
Alors que la route est droite et éclairée à cet endroit, une voiture a surgi et a renversé les deux premiers chevaux. "Cette voiture a déboulé à toute vitesse, se souvient Christelle Segers. Le bruit du choc nous a fait tout de suite réagir, tant c’était fort. Un des chevaux a littéralement volé dans les airs, de même que son cavalier, pour ensuite en faucher un autre avant d’aller s’arrêter sur le bas-côté".

Un cheval tué sur le coup et l'autre euthanasié

Prévenus, deux gendarmes se sont rendus sur les lieux alors que les riverains portaient les premiers secours. Le conducteur de la voiture, un homme de 34 ans, a été entendu par les gendarmes. Selon plusieurs sources, il conduisait en état d'ébriété. Une enquête est ouverte pour connaître les circonstances exactes de l'accident. Les blessés ont été pris en charge par les pompiers. Deux cavaliers ont été hospitalisés: une femme qui est sortie aujourd'hui de l'hôpital pour des douleurs rénales et quatre côtes cassées et un homme pour des plaies importantes nécessitant la pose de six points de suture. Les quatre autres cavaliers, dont une jeune fille de 12 ans, ont été, eux, très traumatisés.

Côté chevaux, un animal a été tué sur le coup et l’autre a dû être euthanasié deux heures plus tard par un vétérinaire venu sur place, en pleine nuit. Ce qui a fortement choqué Christelle Segers : "Le cheval avait les pattes brisées. La pauvre bête s’est débattue et a longtemps agonisé avant l’arrivée du vétérinaire. Les gendarmes ne pouvaient-ils pas l’achever avec leur arme ?", s’interroge-t-elle. La réponse est non. "Seul un vétérinaire a l’autorisation d’euthanasier un animal", répond la gendarmerie.



Trois jours pour évacuer les chevaux morts

Bouleversés, Christelle Segers et ses amis, se demandent pourquoi cette intervention a été si longue et si mal coordonnée, selon eux. "Il a fallu attendre plus de deux heures le vétérinaire et l’ambulance. L’équarrisseur n’est passé que lundi après-midi pour enlever les chevaux que nous avons dû nous-même dégager de la route à 3h30 du matin. Avec la chaleur, l’odeur était insupportable pendant plus de trois jours, racontent les témoins. Heureusement qu’il y a eu cette solidarité spontanée de notre part".

Pour le maire de Montbrun-Lauragais, Gérard Bolet, la situation totalement exceptionnelle explique le sentiment ressenti par les témoins de l’accident. "Nous étions mobilisés. Mon adjoint a passé la nuit sur place et est revenu plusieurs fois après. J’avais obtenu du conseil départemental de limiter la vitesse sur cette route à 70 km/h. L’éclairage de la chaussée a été installé. Des radars pédagogiques doivent l’être également très prochainement. Concernant l’équarrisseur, il n’y en a qu’un habilité à faire ce type d’intervention dans toute la Haute-Garonne, d’où cette attente pour évacuer le corps des animaux", explique l’élu. Même son de cloche chez les gendarmes où un militaire expérimenté affirme qu’en 30 ans de métier il n’a jamais été confronté à un accident de la route impliquant des chevaux "Mais il y a beaucoup d’émotion suite à ce drame et je le comprends", affirme Gérard Bolet.

          The week Activision sells Modern Warfare Remastered standalone, it puts COD: Ghosts on Xbox One back compat   

Call of Duty Ghosts on Xbox 360 is now playable via Xbox One, thanks to the console's backwards compatibility programme.

The timing of its addition is interesting - Activision has just this week started selling Modern Warfare Remastered standalone for £34.99, after previously only including it in the pricy Legacy edition of Infinite Warfare.

Ghosts was far less popular than Modern Warfare, however - it's unlikely it will see its own Remastered-style re-release.

          Wimbledon 2017 Draw: Bracket, Schedule and Preview of Men and Women's Event   

World No. 1 Andy Murray could face Stanislas Wawrinka in the quarter-finals of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships after being drawn in the upper end of the men's singles bracket on Friday.

Murray will face either a qualifier or a lucky loser in the first match of his Wimbledon title defence, and the competition's official Twitter account teased some of the prospective fixtures in the final eight:

Meanwhile, Novak Djokovic will be looking to put some of this year's disappointments behind him as he prepares to open his campaign against Martin Klizan.

In the women's singles, top seed Angelique Kerber and Karolina Pliskova were drawn in the top half of the bracket, while Simona Halep and Elena Svitolina took their spots in the bottom half.

Ben Rothenberg of the New York Times provided a look at the men's draw in full:

Read on for a more detailed breakdown and preview of the 2017 Wimbledon Championships' first round following Friday's draw announcement.

Preview

Murray may be ranked as top seed in the men's singles entering his Wimbledon title defence, but spirits are hardly at their strongest after he exited this month's AEGON Championships in the opening round.

The Scot has appeared in two ATP finals this year, and although he's yet to add any silverware to his collection in 2017, coach Ivan Lendl is confident regarding his charge's chances, per BBC Sport's David Ornstein:

Djokovic will be another high-profile star seeking at least some redemption at SW19, although world No. 44 Klizan is among the more difficult fixtures he could have been handed outside the seeded ranks.

The Serb's run through England's capital won't be an easy one, either, as Reem Abulleil of Sport 360 illustrated he won't have to wait long before the competition really begins to heat up:

Seven-time champion Roger Federer will begin his search for an all-time record eighth Wimbledon crown against Ukrainian Alexandr Dolgopolov, with hopes high after enjoying something of a resurgence in 2017 so far.

Nadal has exhibited a rejuvenation of monstrous proportions in recent months and tightened his grip as the French Open's all-time most successful star after adding an unprecedented 10th Roland Garros title to his trophy cabinet.

But the clay season has made way for grass, meaning the Spaniard may no longer be the frontrunner to run riot as he has done at recent competitions.

The women's bracket also features a selection of tantalising potential fixtures as early as the round of 16, as Jose Morgado of Portuguese daily Record posted the women's singles bracket in full:

Serena Williams' pregnancy means the reigning champion will not return to defend her Wimbledon crown, but as was shown by Jelena Ostapenko's shock victory at the French Open, women's titles seem there for the taking.

An open field has emerged in Williams' absence, and Johanna Konta worsened world No. 1 Kerber's 2017 woes with a win at the AEGON International on Thursday, per WTA Insider:

Konta beat Kerber and French Open-winner Ostapenko in the same day to prove her Wimbledon credentials just days prior to the tournament getting underway in earnest, and she'll face Su-Wei Hsieh in the first round.

However, that's provided she's fit to feature in the competition. BBC Sport reported on Friday that Konta was forced to withdraw from the semi-finals in Eastbourne due to a back injury she suffered from a fall during her clash with Kerber.

It's also been reported fourth seed Svitolina is an injury doubt heading to London after she picked up a foot concern at the AEGON Classic, per the official WTA website. She's due to take on Australian Ashleigh Barty in the first round.

At least one American will drop at the first hurdle after Shelby Rogers was drawn against compatriot Julia Boserup.

          @Silence: The fate of the suspended BoA member is ...   
@Silence:
The fate of the suspended BoA member is only inderectly known. He's still suspended. His contract has not been renewed, like his colleagues contracts.
He's on a disciplinary measure, without disciplinary procedure.
Guess how ATILO will find that?
But the contract has ended, and ATILO will be okay with the job loss.

I sincerely hope his mental health survives, because how the AC treats _their_ employee is mind-bogging.

Mr. Ernst is a lawyer, he should know better how to treat employees with a contract, even difficult employees.
I hope once he's officially in charge, he'll have a good look at the case, and find a way out. This case is extremely disgraceful for all concerned, especially EPO management and the AC.
But, seeing how the new Codexchanges were waved through ("to get it off the table"), and DE voting in favour (only four abstentions: NL, IT, IE, LI), I fear the constitutional court in Germany will finally say a word about a lack of independence and power abuse inside the EPO, and a lack of supervision...

This whole situation is like a fight: too many people are watching and waiting for someone else to step in.


The one advantage with FR and DE voting in favour is, that if their nationals get fired, tehy might have a chance with national courts and get a job in the national administration due to gross violation of their countries' law by the delegate, and the duty of care springing forth from this case. And if someone wins against their state, guess how the delegates will react next AC meeting?

          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Christoph Schwerdtner   
Als Unternehmer habe ich ebenfalls einen BMW 6er gegen ein Tesla Model S getauscht. Da ich meist Kunden besuche, nutze ich überwiegend Supercharger und Destination Charger, noch kostenlos. Steuern zahle ich nicht, Versicherung gibt es schon für 1200€/Jahr ohne Fahrerbeschränkung (emover). Öl brauche ich nicht, Bremsen praktisch auch nicht wg. entspr. guter Bremswirkung durch Rekuperation, Lebensdauer der Bremsen dadurch ca. 150000-200000 km. 8 Jahre Garantie auf die Batterie. In vielen Städten kann ich kostenlos parken. Aktuell die einzigen Kosten habe ich neben Versicherung nur noch in der Waschstraße. Da haben wir inzwischen in Hannover eine Flatrate. Der Fahrspass bei 900 NM ist dabei unbezahlbar. Der Autopilot erlaubt auf Autobahnen äußerst entspannt zu telefonieren oder auch Emails zu diktieren, Internet und Spotify sind kostenlos. Jeder, wirklich jeder, der mich bisher begleitet hat, hat danach jegliche Zweifel abgelegt. Spannend könnte der BMW Elektro Dreier werden, wenn die deutschen Ladesäulen nicht generell bis 44KW begrenzt wären. Bei Tesla sind es über 110KW, also mehr als das 2,5fache. Wer will unterwegs 1,5 Stunden laden, wenn er von Köln nach Berlin oder von Hamburg nach Frankfurt fährt? Im Tesla keine halbe Stunde, außerdem trifft man derzeit noch viele interessante Menschen an den Superchargern. Meine beste Autoentscheidung seit 30 Jahren.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Michael Willberg   
Die von Ihnen als MilchmädchenRechnung bezeichneten werte kann ich gerne genauer erläutern. Es hilft, den Text ganz und genau zu lesen. Ich bezahle für meinen Ökostrom 21 Cent netto pro kWh. Für die eingespeiste Energie erhalte ich als Stromunternehmen netto 13 Cent. Differenz 8 Cent. Im Laufe der Jahre habe ich im Mittel etwa 70 % der Jahresfahrleistung zu Hause gekaden. Den Rest kostenfrei an Superchargern und Destination Chargern. Ergibt als Mittelwert 5,6 Cent. Aufgerundet!!! Sechs Cent. Das Märchen von der Batterie können Sie sich sparen. 8 Jahre Garantie ohne km-Begrenzung sagen alles. Und ich werde keinen Diesel mit dem Tesla vergleichen. Aber gehen sie mal ins Archiv der Auto Bild. Da steht eine Aussage eines anderen Unternehmers, der den Tesla gegen den Audi S7 rechnet. Fazit: beim Tesla tausende Euro gespart Und von dem Fahrgefühl spreche ich auch nicht. Es geht hier ums Geld.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Helmut K.   
Bestätigung! Unser Privathaushalt hat 5er BMW gegen mittleres Model-S getauscht(beide um 75k€). Erste 20.000km sind gefahren, diese beinhalten Urlaubsfahrten, etc. bei bisherigen Ladekosten für ca. 600€. Geladen wird zuhaus, tagsüber (nach Feierabend) an der eigenen Voltaikanlage. Wenn's in Urlaub geht dann kostenlose Supercharger welche Herr Wilberg in seinem Bericht mit Limit angab welches wir nicht haben. Auch sein angegeber Verbrauch zeigt eine sportliche bis normale Fahrweise, auch hier ist Sparpotential vergraben. Alles in Allem ist das Teslafahren für jeden der zuhause an eigener oder geplanter Anlage laden kann, auch von Vorteil gegenüber einer normalen Mittelklasselimousine. Danke fürs Lesen.
          Kommentar zu Warum sich ein E-Auto als Firmenwagen rechnen kann von Michael O.   
Ich fahre selbst einen Tesla Model S seit knapp 6 Wochen und kann es nur bestätigen: das Fahren macht wieder Spaß und die Folgekosten sind minimal. Tesla hat nicht nur ein E-Auto gebaut sondern ein Gesamtkonzept für die E-Mobilität geliefert (u.A. auch dank kostenfreien Superchargern auch für die Langstrecke). Die anderen Hersteller hängen noch weit hinterher.

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.

While the very fabric of space-time warped and undulated over the Trump-Morning Joe conflict (we’ll get to that), Republicans in the House finance subcommittee worked up a scheme to neutralize the Johnson Amendment. The proposed rule would deny the IRS the funds it would need to investigate Johnson Amendment violations…for churches only. That’s right, no mention of other nonprofits, no mention of other houses of worship. We joined a big coalition of groups opposing the measure, and I did the equivalent of marching up and down, toddler-Bart-Simpson style, making noise about it.

But you know, the fabric of space time. Undulating and whatnot. About that:

After Trump did his dumbass Trump thing that he does, Sarah Huckabee Sanders attempted to justify the president’s behavior as some kind of proportional response to bullying (????), and when asked who she could point to as a role model, she defaulted to God. That’s fine, but you’d think a couple human role models would be useful in a pinch. Maybe keep a couple of those in your back pocket. Just a thought.

More fun was the op-ed by Mika and Joe themselves, where they threw so much shade it looked like an eclipse. They said Trump wasn’t mentally healthy enough to watch Morning Joe, and made the charge that Trump had blackmailed them with the threat of a negative National Inquirer article.

David Roberts at Vox tries to come to grips with what the hell is wrong with the man, and why it’s so hard to figure it out:

Trump defies our theory of mind because he appears to lack a coherent, persistent self or worldview. He is a raging fire of need, protected and shaped by a lifetime of entitlement, with the emotional maturity and attention span of a 6-year-old, utterly unaware of the long-term implications of his actions. ... Politicos and journalists need a story in which Trump’s stumbling and grasping can be construed as a savvy media strategy, a “distraction” from some other wrongdoing he has going on, or a “pivot” from his current omnishambles. Those are all versions of political maneuvering with which they are familiar. They need for Trump to want things, to be after things, to have a plan. ... But there’s no there there.

CFI Los Angeles chief Jim Underdown recoils at the utter plausibility of The Handmaid’s Tale, and laments that the star of the TV version, Elizabeth Moss, is herself a Scientologist:

What doesn’t fit is that the Church of Scientology could be a central character in The Handmaid’s Tale TV series. For decades we’ve been hearing real-life stories from ex-Scientologists that sound like they could be plots in the series.   

Nikhil Sonnad at Quartz does a great service, cataloguing how Alex Jones’ Infowars store and Gwyneth Paltrow’s Goop store and the Moon Juice store all sell the same snake oil.

Speaking of Alex Jones (if we must), he had a guest, Robert David Steele, who said this:

This may strike your listeners as way out but we actually believe that there is a colony on Mars that is populated by children who were kidnapped and sent into space on a 20 year ride. So that once they get to Mars they have no alternative but to be slaves on the Mars colony.  

Now, Jones does seem to distance himself from this idea a tad (“Well I don’t know about Mars bases”), but don’t give him too much credit! Or any! Because then he says this:

I know they’ve created massive, thousands of different types of chimeras that are alien lifeforms on this earth now. 

Just in case you’re wondering, NASA denies the allegation. Well, of course they would. Pfft.

In Bizarro America, aka Canada, a new survey shows that the electorate would prefer an atheist, gay, or transgender prime minister over an evangelical Christian. 

CFI’s new intern Andy Ngo thinks back to the Orlando massacre one year ago, and how the discourse about it has been too diffuse, asking, “While it is imperative to prevent and condemn discrimination against Muslims, why does that have to come at the cost of speaking openly about religious fundamentalism, particularly Islamism?”

South Africa will no longer have single-religion public schools. (A group lobbying for this change, the Organisasie vir Godsdienste-Onderrig en Demokrasie, has the greatest acronym ever: OGOD.) 

Australian homeopathics company Brauer is being investigated for promoting an ebook that advocates the use of homeopathy to treat babies and toddlers.  

Theologian and sociologist Peter Berger has died at the age of 88. I don’t know much about most of his work, but his book The Social Construction of Reality blew my mind when I read it in college a million years ago.

The Morning Heresy: “I actually read it.” - Hemant Mehta

 


          You May Wear Pants   

The Morning Heresy is your daily digest of news and links relevant to the secular and skeptic communities.

Cardinal George Pell is the third-most powerful official in the Catholic Church as head of the Vatican’s finances. And he’s just been charged multiple sexual assaults in his native Australia. I think it’s time to play this song again.

Gov. Matt Bevin of Kentucky signs into law a bill allowing Bible classes in public schools. I’m sure that not far behind are classes on the Qu’ran, the Bhagvat Gita, Dianetics, and the Books of Bokonon. Any day now.

ProPublica reveals “a trove” of Facebook’s internal documents showing its secret guidelines for determining what is and is not hate speech, and thus able to be censored. And some of it is frankly disturbing:

One document trains content reviewers on how to apply the company’s global hate speech algorithm. The slide identifies three groups: female drivers, black children and white men. It asks: Which group is protected from hate speech? The correct answer: white men. ... White men are considered a group because both traits are protected, while female drivers and black children, like radicalized Muslims, are subsets, because one of their characteristics is not protected. 

Adi Robertson at The Verge notes that Facebook’s task is more or less impossible:

If the company decides to promote a positive social environment without taking clear political sides, it will trend toward a faux neutrality where “hate” is any negative opinion, punishing people who criticize the status quo. But if it admits to an ideological bent, it will have to start formulating political stances on which groups worldwide deserve the most protection from hate. The more social responsibility it accepts, the more liable it is for failing to police its users, and the more power it has to control speech — not just comments to other users, but personal timeline posts or photographs. 

Oh, hey hey hey, make sure you dig the latest Cause & Effect newsletter. It’s got international news, SCOTUS news, and not all of the news is bad!

CFI’s Benjamin Radford is on the panel for a discussion about psychics (along with a bunch of alleged psychics) on WNPR’s Colin McEnroe Show.

Another “psychic,” Michelle Marks of Dixon, Illinois, is arrested for “exploitation of an elderly person and multiple weapons charges.” Wow she was busy!

Researchers at the Catholic University of Louvain wanted to see if atheists in Western Europe were more or less closed-minded than the religious. And that’s what they found, more or less:

Atheists tended to show greater intolerance of contradiction, meaning when they were presented with two seemingly contradictory statements they rated one as very true and the other as very false. They also showed less propensity to be able to imagine arguments contrary to their own position and find them somewhat convincing.

A group of scientists and other figures sign on to an initiative called Mission 2020, intended to get greenhouse gas emissions to “curve downward” by 2020, because failing that, the goals of Paris become unattainable. While it’s noble, I am skeptical. Especially after my Point of Inquiry interview with Elizabeth Kolbert earlier this month.

Undaunted by my kind of despair, a “global covenant of mayors” pledging to meet the goals of the Paris accord has brought on board more than 7400 cities.

Cleve Wootson at WaPo introduces us to Michael Tate Reed, the guy who keeps ramming his car into Ten Commandments monuments, as he did in Arkansas yesterday:

[In 2014] He was diagnosed with schizoaffective disorder and released under an agreement that required him to continue treatment. He sent a rambling letter to the newspaper apologizing and describing the voices in his head and his attempts to recover from mental health issues. 

Speaking of which, Joseph Frankel at The Atlantic looks at how the phenomenon of “hearing voices” in one’s head—which is sometimes what makes people think they’re psychic, and others say they’re psychotic—may be more common than once thought, and also may be more controllable:

These experiments suggest that auditory hallucinations are the result of the mind failing to brand its actions as its own. Watching what the brain does during these hallucinations may clarify how that works, and what differences in the brain create these experiences. ... Drawing a parallel with Autism Spectrum Disorder, the [researchers] are interested in the extent to which the psychics they saw “might occupy the extreme end of a continuum” of people who hear voices. 

The Mormon Church is taking bold strides into the latter half of the 20th century, offering paid maternity or parental leave to church employees and (hold on to your butts) allowing women to wear pants.

A California health department report says that 111 people have chosen to take their own lives in the first six months of the state’s right-to-die law. 

Uranus isn’t just odd because its name makes you chuckle (which is why I must pronounce it “YURen-uss,” not, you know, the other way). It’s on a crazy 98-degree axis, and its magnetic shield is all wobbly.

When there’s somethin’ strange…in the neighborhood…who you gonna call? The Royal Thai Police Force! They ain’t afraid o’no phi pob. 

Ken Ham’s Ark Encounter is a fun, scientific, educational museum experience for the whole family! Oh wait, the city wants them to pay a “safety assessment fee”? I meant to say, it’s a ministry. So, sorry. Exempt. Phew! I mean, “amen.”

My home state of Maine gets its first case of measles in 20 years. Oh god I hope it’s not me!

The EPIC-X RED DRAGON Collection brings it all together, so that you don’t have to.   6K RESOLUTION  Every 6K frame is a 19 megapixel RAW image, which is up to 9x more pixels than 1080p HD. The amount of picture detail found in a 6K image goes beyond that of 35mm, comparing only to 65mm in image density. This means more precise VFX plates, reframing flexibility, and less aliasing artifacts and moiré. Even when outputting 6K footage to 4K or HD, your images will be cleaner and crisper compared to those captured at lower resolutions. When it comes to resolution, bigger is better.   16.5+ NATIVE STOPS  RED DRAGON sensors have a native dynamic range of over 16.5+ stops, giving you a huge advantage in challenging lighting conditions. An improved signal-to-noise ratio gives you confidence that your picture quality will be print and cinema ready from ISO 200 to 2000. Fewer filters, fewer IR issues, and less noise gives you more opportunities for perfect exposure. Vibrant colors, smoother skin tones, and improved tonal variations are just a few of the advantages of the RED DRAGON color science. Brilliant hues and accurate subtleties stand out in every frame, producing RAW images that are true to life. The next generation of sensor technology requires the next generation of color science.

          Push-in robbery on Avenue B was actually a drug deal gone bad: NYPD   

There were multiple media reports earlier this week about a push-in robbery on Avenue B at 13th Street. A man reportedly pushed his way inside an apartment, stabbed the female resident multiple times, and fled with $500.

However, according to the Police Blotter in this week's issue of The Villager, that's not actually what happened.

Police say that the resident, named as Cassidy Helmken, "had made an arrangement for a drug deal — she was apparently buying — but it turned violent."

“It was a drug transaction that went bad,” Captain Vincent Greany, commanding officer of the Ninth Precinct, told The Villager.

A search warrant subsequently turned up a quantity of alleged cocaine and drug paraphernalia at her apartment.

According to police, it was not a home invasion: Helmken apparently willingly opened the door for the suspect.

Police charged Helmken, who reportedly has three prior arrests, with multiple counts of criminal possession of a controlled substance and two counts of criminal use of drug paraphernalia.

The investigation is ongoing.

          Cuban General Who Oversaw the Downing of ‘Brothers To The Rescue’ Planes Dies   
Cuban General Who Oversaw the Downing of 'Brothers To The Rescue' Planes
Dies

14ymedio, Havana, 29 June 2017 — On Wednesday, Brigadier General Eduardo
Delgado Rodriguez died in Havana. He had supervised the intelligence
operations that led to the downing of the Brothers to the Rescue planes
in 1996, and as director of the Miami espionage work of the Wasp
Network, he was in charge of infiltrating five Cuban spies into the
United States. A brief note in the official press reported his death
without specifying the cause.

The notice, which appeared in the Granma newspaper, briefly details his
biography since joining "fight against the Fulgencio Batista regime" up
to his presence as a military man in Nicaraguan territory during the
1980s. It also lists his many decorations.

However, the obituary published in the official organ of the Communist
Party does not mention that Delgado served as head of the General
Directorate of Intelligence of the Ministry of the Interior (MININT) for
20 years, a post he ascended to after his performance during the trial
of "Cause No. 1" in 1989.

In that famous proceeding, Major General Arnaldo Ochoa Sánchez and three
other military officers were sentenced to death on charges of drug
trafficking and abuse of power. At that time Delgado had the rank of
colonel and presided over the investigations of the case.

In 1994 he was promoted to brigadier general and from his position as
head of MININT intelligence directed the actions of the Wasp Network.

Delgado was in charge of the operation that compiled the information to
bring down the planes of Brothers to the Rescue on 24 February of 1996.
In 2013 he was replaced as head of Director of Intelligence, and became

It’s been 26 years since Anita Hill raised awareness of sexual harassment with her televised testimony before the U.S. Senate Judiciary committee. A national conversation about the problem ensued, as did a fuller understanding of its pervasiveness and unlawfulness. Charges of sexual harassment filed with the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission jumped 50 percent just the year after Hill spoke out. So is she surprised by recent disclosures about Uber and … [ more ]

          User Review: Better than anything AT&T can give you   

someguy805 submitted this review of the Nokia N73:

Overall rating: 4.5 (out of 5)

Many moons ago, I bought a W810i. It was brilliant. It also got dropped in water. Insurance sent me various flavors of braindead and broken phones (Pearl 8100, Samsung SGH-a707, W580i, LG Shine CU720) before office of the President stepped in and gave me $200 to buy this phone. It beats them all.

PROS:
It runs a real smartphone OS, which means real applications and real PDA functionality.

The camera is fantastic. Pictures are crisp and vibrant. Video could be passed off as coming from one of those "Flip Video" sort of cameras.

The media player flat-out makes sense. It's easy to use, lets you send it to the background, and holding a button (with the most recent firmware) immediately brings up the 'Now Playing'.

Battery life has not been a problem. It's not quite the ten days my old
W810i managed, but it's by no means bad. I use it moderately and charge it every third day. Charging is incredibly quick.

At the maximum brightness the screen is uncomfortably bright, which is a very good thing.

In the Nokia tradition, RF, signal acquisition and holding, and voice quality are stellar. Calls are loud and clear, and my mom can't be convinced I'm not on a landline. The speakers on the top are loud and clear.

CONS:
The keyboard is a bit cramped, but I'm used to that sort of thing. The joystick is a bit low-rent.

The front camera is dreadful, but you already knew that.

It uses Nokia's smaller, spindlier charging connector (but comes with an adapter - don't bin that old charger just yet) and Pop-Port. They're not flawed, but a 3.5mm headset jack and miniUSB are better at this sort of thing.

It is quite thick.

Symbian OS v9.1 requires applications to be signed. There is no surefire workaround for this. It's occasionally slow.

No SDHC support means you're limited to 2GB, and miniSD means yet another adapter.

          User Review: N73 Rocks the D900   

bothfly submitted this review of the Nokia N73:

Overall rating: 4.5 (out of 5)

I got the N73 a few weeks ago and thought it was a great phone.
First and foremost is the battery. It lasts a very long time. Calls, text, mms, internet and it goes and goes. I had gotten used to charging my phones every day to every other day. The N73 can go 3 days easy wit med/heavy use on a charge.
Second is the camera. The best shots I have ever seen on a phone. Auto focus is great. No blurry pic's and the flash gets it right. Here is one reason I picked the N73 over the D900. I have a 2 and 1/2 year old. Hard for her to stay still for a picture. The shutter lag on the D900 always made the shot blurry. On the N73, even though both phones have autofocus, the N73's shots come out clear and crisp. Can't figure out why, but the camera is worth the price.
As far as Nokia's UI, its near the top of the phone list with Sony. You can do anything with the UI on the N73. Saves pic's to the mem card. Plays MP3's as rigtones, FULL Mp3's not making you cut them down and save to the phones mem, like the D900. I could go on and on.
Yes, the D900 is super slim super cool slider phone with a 3 mega pixel camera. But it will frustrate you in a few days because of its limitations. Get the N73, and yes you will feel it bump around a bit in your shorts, but evertime you pull it out to use it, the phone that is. It will be great.
The 1 and only thing Nokia missed was leaving out the A2DP BT stereo support.

          Textile Exchange Releases Globally Recognized Recycling Standards   

 Textile Exchange proudly announces the release of Recycled Claim Standard 2.0 (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard 4.0 (GRS). The newly revised versions of these #GlobalRecycled standards include updates that solidify the RCS and GRS as the leading standards for recycled materials in the apparel industry and ensure continued growth in other industries, including metal, plastics, electronics, packaging and beyond. 

Over the past year, a group of stakeholders was convened to review Textile Exchange's recycled standards. The International Working Group (IWG), led by Textile Exchange, included recyclers, manufacturers of recycled product, other recycled standard owners, brand and retail users of the standards, and certification bodies. Companies, including Unifi, Geentanjali Woolens, Hohenstein, H&M, and Global Organic Textile Standard were among the working group members.

“It was my honour being a part of the IWG for revision of the RCS & GRS Standards. The entire process was extremely democratic; everyone’s comments and suggestions were considered debated and then finalised. I thoroughly enjoyed dedicating my time to the IWG. The final standards are excellent, precise and address most of the processes and concerns involved in Recycling. We are confident that the implementation of the new RCS 2.0 and GRS 4.0 will encourage a lot more manufacturers to apply for certification making it more globally accepted."

-Deepak Goel, Geetnajali Woolens, PVT LTD.

The Recycled Claim Standard (RCS) and Global Recycled Standard (GRS) provide verification of recycled materials, and then track the material through to the final product. The GRS includes additional social, environmental and chemical processing requirements. In 2016, the number of units certified to the GRS grew from 595 to 961, a growth of over 60%. The RCS saw an almost 200% jump from 78 units in 2015 to 220 in 2016.

Key Changes to the #GlobalRecycled Standards

A key change in both standards is the introduction of the Reclaimed Materials Supplier Agreement. This document provides more visibility to the suppliers of reclaimed materials. Guidelines have been introduced for added clarity and consistency of recycling claims, including post-consumer and pre-consumer.

A key change in the Global Recycled Standard is the adoption of ZDHC's Manufacturing Restricted Substance List v1.1 (MRSL) (http://www.roadmaptozero.com/programme/manufacturing-restricted-substances-list-mrsl-conformity-guidance/). The MRSL has been developed by the industry to address intentional use of potentially hazardous substances. The MRSL will replace GRS's previous Prohibited Substance List. The Zero Discharge of Hazardous Chemicals (ZDHC) Programme takes a holistic approach to tackling the issue of hazardous chemicals in the global textile, leather and footwear value chain.

Other changes and additions include new examples of accepted recycled inputs, updated wastewater limits, and clarifications. You can read more details about the changes online: www.TextileExchange.org/Integrity.

Companies currently certified to one of the standards will be required to comply with the new versions by July 1, 2018. A list of approved Certification Bodies, currently certified companies, and all related documents are available on Textile Exchange’s website: www.TextileExchange.org/Integrity.

Should We Be Grateful? 

Image result for thanks for nothing animated gif

In an odd turn of events, and with little explanation, Michigan Governor Rick Snyder has decided to return the state’s School Reform Office back to the Department of Education.
Why is this odd? Well, maybe it isn’t odd. What is odd is that Snyder initially removed the SRO from the Department of Education and placed it under the control of the Department of Technology, Management and Budget in March of 2015. And why did he do this? I’m honestly not sure anyone knows. However, the suspicion continues that this move was a means of moving the SRO out of the control of the state superintendent and the democratically elected (meaning accountable to us citizens) state school board. This certainly falls within Snyder’s established pattern of avoiding democracy. (Flint anyone?) He took what was ours.
In today’s statement, Snyder explains in an Orwellian sentence, “Improving our schools and holding them accountable for their performance is critical to Michigan’s students’ success.”
What?
Let’s fact check that. Detroit Public Schools (now named the Detroit Public Should We Be Grateful? | educarenow:

Ed Reform v 6.3 Accountability Lite


Full disclosure-- I made the number 6.3 out of the air, because frankly I've lost track of the various versions of ed reform that we've seen. But we're definitely on to something new.

The new ed reform has staked out a position against bureaucracy and paperwork. This conversation starts with a Rick Hess piece, which becomes a thing because Betsy DeVos decided to quote it in her address to charteristas. And so we arrive at a call for reformsters to stand up against reformocracy.

The call for getting rid of bureaucracy is not without disagreement. Checker Finn pushed back hard, and Mike Petrilli chimed in. But there continues to be a buzz surrounding the issue of accountability/bureaucracy. The most recent entry in the discussion is on the Fordham website, written by Max Eden of the Manhattan Insititute, defending the book project that Finn attacked.


The piece highlights some of the important features of v 6.3 reforminess. "Results: Yes. Regulation: No. How to beat back the new education establishment" is a rather mixed-up manifesto.

One of the curious features of current reforminess is the complete brain-wipe when it comes to Common Core State [sic] Standards. Reformers led the charge to inflict a set of national standards on every state and every public school district, and I'm happy that CCSS is more ghost-like these days, but it's mighty disingenuous for Core supporters to pretend that it's just awful how someone somehow created a mighty web of regulations and paperwork and bureaucratic hoop-jumping to make sure that the Core was properly implemented. This selective amnesia occurs periodically in the reform movement. Reformsters were shocked that the Big Standardized Test narrowed curriculum and warped education, after they

          U.S. CFTC reaches first non-prosecution deal with ex-Citigroup traders   
The U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission struck its first-ever non-prosecution deal with three former traders from a unit of Citigroup on Thursday, in what could signal part of a broader new enforcement strategy to win cooperation from Wall Street. The country's top derivatives regulator said three former traders, Jeremy Lao and Shlomo Salant of New York and Daniel Liao of Japan, had all cooperated with the CFTC into its investigation of illegal "spoofing" - a manipulative trading tactic in which traders create the false appearance of market interest by placing orders and then immediately cancel them. The CFTC had previously fined Citigroup $25 million in the case, which involved spoofing of U.S. Treasury futures. That was the first time a bank had been charged with spoofing since the CFTC won broad new powers in the 2010 Dodd-Frank law to go after the practice. In March, the CFTC also filed civil charges against two other traders in connection with the case, ordering them

          Reeling from Horrifying GOP Health Care Bills? Just wait till you lose your Voting Rights, just around the corner.    
While everyone is still wondering how Republicans could ever seriously fix their health care bills that drop 22 to 23 million Americans with a few more insane amendments, voting rights is about to take a huge hit:
The Republican presidential tactic of crippling agencies you don't like by putting either the incompetent or the actively hostile in charge of them (continues) ... Kris Kobach, the godfather of the national movement to suppress the votes of people the GOP would prefer not to exercise the franchise (was) named as vice-chairman of his Presidential Advisory Commission on Election Integrity, a snipe hunt the only apparent purpose of which is maintaining the fiction that masses of people, many of them brown, are gaming our elections. 
Here's the most damning news that might just alert us to specific Republican governors who take the bait:
Kobach wrote a letter to his fellow secretaries of state that left many jaws on the floor. From The Kansas City Star: In a Wednesday letter, Kobach asked the Connecticut secretary of state's office to provide the commission with all publicly available voter roll data, including the full names of all registered voters along with their addresses, dates of birth, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers, voting history and other personal information ... he sent similar letters to election officials in every state. 

Quite simply, any secretary of state who complies with this request is either too stupid to hold the job, or is in sympathy with Kobach's goal of whitewashing the electorate.  Alex Padilla, the Secretary of State for California, said, "California's participation would only serve to legitimize the false and already debunked claims of massive voter fraud made by the President, the Vice President, and Mr. Kobach. The President's Commission is a waste of taxpayer money and a distraction from the real threats to the integrity of our elections today: aging voting systems and documented Russian interference in our elections."

Connecticut Secretary of State Denise Merrill was a bit more discreet: "The courts have repudiated his methods on multiple occasions but often after the damage has been done to voters. Given Secretary Kobach's history we find it very difficult to have confidence in the work of this commission."
BREAKING: Scott Walker gives up voter information to Trump's big government demands. Hey, we just had a recount too. All is well?

Wisconsin elections officials said Friday that they'll sell some voter information to a presidential commission investigating election fraud. Administrator Mike Haas issued a statement Friday saying data is available for purchase and the commission must release it to buyers, adding that the commission routinely sells the information to political parties, candidates and researchers. The commission would charge the presidential panel $12,500 for the data.
Having done a lot of research on "the right to vote," I found that despite the guarantee in the 14th, 15th and 19th Amendments...with help from the Voting Rights Act (now destroyed by activist conservative Justices), voting seems to be the least defended squishy right ever. In fact, I could make the argument that women and African Americans were definitely given the right to vote, but anyone else including white guys...nope.

What if Obama did this? Always the best test against hypocritical Republican policy:
As Vanita Gupta points out in that same K.C. Star report, if someone in the Obama administration had made this request, at the very least, there would be a full week of howler monkeys screaming about federalism from every perch in every conservative think-tank in the jungle. At the most, there would be hearing after hearing about the Obama administration's plan to seed thousands of the president's fellow Kenyans in every crucial precinct in Ohio and Florida. What's more important, though, is that the national campaign to roll back voting rights now has reached the highest levels of government, with the blessing of the president* and the president*-in-waiting. This is the final step backwards across the Edmund Pettus Bridge.

          Paul Ryan floats 22 Million "people will choose not to buy something they don't want," like health insurance?    
Paul Ryan's ingeniously comical spin on the GOP's serious problem of causing 22 or 23 million Americans to lose their health insurance coverage has exposed him as a phony overrated policy wonk. From PolitiFact: 

Spin Me Round Round: Of course it's not true, because Americans will "choose" to drop their insurance coverage because they can't afford the premiums and/or deductibles. And because they're...
...no longer eligible for Medicaid. The CBO said two-thirds of the 22 million without insurance would lose out through cuts in the Medicaid program.
Twitter corrections followed as well, embarrassingly so for a guy known for his "fiscally conservative" tax cut pledge:

Pretty simple stuff. Remember, they're in charge now.

A Reduced Medicaid Plan Reduces Insured? Ah, yea, that's the Problem? Ryan really said this too, as if it was a benefit. Not getting the same kind of attention but just as pathetic, he took the leap...


Paul Ryan classic: "What they're basically saying at the Congressional Budget Office is that, if you're not going to force people to buy Obamacare, if you're not going to force people to buy something they don't want, then they won't buy it. It's not that people are getting pushed off a plan. It's that people will choose not to buy something that they don't like or want."

A Ripple Effect: 21st Century Innovations that Matter

Adolescent learning: peers, school, home, distributed resources, work, networked publics (a networked space where the public meets). —B. Barron, 2006

We need to create environments where we can work and learn peer-to-peer with our students because that is where they go to learn what interests them. Students need to see the value-added that the teacher offers.

94% of adolescents are involved in online gaming. —Pew

Multi-tasking is a myth. Our brains have an executive function that allows us to only think about things serially. Students, though, are faster than adults because they are younger (our brain processing speed peaks at between 20 and 30. When you move from one task to another, there is a slight delay and loss of time. There is, however, background tasking (e.g., listening to music). When students are engaged in difficult to cognitively process content, we should decrease the need for background tasking and multi-tasking. Drill and practice builds automaticity that leads to a greater ability to do background tasking while engaged in processing new content. Our students are giving us their “continuous partial attention” (Linda Stark).

If you grant students choice, on average, their grades will increase by a full grade.

From Banned to Planned: Cell Phones in Schools
Hall Davidson

http://discoveryedspeakersbureau.com/node/119

Poll Everywhere
: Allows you to have students take a quick poll using their phones.

Suggestions for ways teachers are using cell phones in the classroom are avilable at http://k12cellphoneprojects.wikispaces.com another resource is http://www.cellphonesinlearning.com.

Voicethread
: A tool for creating projects like HyperStudio, but it allows you to add audio recorded directly from your cell phone.

Davidson suggests we rename "cell phones." In some countries they call it a hand phone and keitai ("a snug, intimate technosocial tethering"). Cell phones are different from other technologies because they are both input and output devices.

"Classroom management is less of an issues when engaged learning is taking place."

Qik: This site allows you to broadcast live from a cell phone. It will also allows you to embed code into blogs or Google Earth.

Shazam
: It allows you to hold-up your cell phone to a song and the phone can decode the name of the song.

Cell phones can read bar codes (bar code readers are freely available online) and they can create bar codes from text/pictures (QR code generators).

Amazon bought a company that does object recognition (e.g., you can take a picture of someone's shoes, send it to Amazon, and Amazon with offer it for purchase).

Davidson has placed Fatherlee's paperwork for using cell phones in the classroom on his website (see above). It includes a letter home to parents, instructions for designing cell-phone educational activities, and a tech-survey for parents to ensure students aren't being charged for their in-class work.

          Emmanuel Macron souhaite la création d’un budget de la zone euro.   

 Emmanuel Macron souhaite la création d’un budget de la zone euro. France 2 a fait le point sur ce projet, qui fait débat. Plus d’Europe, c’était la promesse du candidat Macron. Aujourd’hui président, il le martèle, il veut relancer l’Europe. Sa solution : créer un budget pour les pays de la zone euro. Mais cela fait débat. Ce serait une nouveauté, car les 19 pays de la zone euro n’ont pas de porte-monnaie commun, alors que l’Union européenne a un budget commun, qui lui permet essentiellement de financer la politique agricole commune. Un budget pour la zone euro servirait à investir, protéger la stabilité et agir en cas d’urgence. Pierre Jovanovic: Si Macron est élu, la France n’existera plus. F. Asselineau: Voilà ce que la commission européenne exige du prochain Président de la République Mais ce budget supplémentaire serait inutile pour les eurosceptiques, il ne serait qu’un coût supplémentaire à la charge des États. Au contraire, certains économistes estiment que c’est indispensable et que la zone euro ne peut pas se développer sans ce budget commun. Ce budget pourrait être financé par les recettes fiscales des États. Source: francetvinfo

 La Commission européenne a soutenu jeudi la proposition de l’Italie d’autoriser les navires humanitaires prenant en charge les migrants venus des côtes africaines à s’amarrer dans les ports d’autres pays de l’UE. La veille, Rome avait demandé à ses partenaires européens de l’aide pour faire face à la crise migratoire, menaçant de fermer ses ports aux navires de sauvetage. « Nous soutiendrons l’Italie lors des discussions sur la coopération des Etats sur le débarquement des migrants », a déclaré la porte-parole du commissaire européen aux questions migratoires. Relocalisation des réfugiés: L’Europe pourrait lancer des procédures contre les pays membres Ces discussions seront à l’ordre du jour d’une réunion entre les ministres de l’Intérieur des 28 la semaine prochaine à Tallinn, en Estonie. « Sur le plan politique, la situation est mauvaise pour l’Italie. Si le nombre d’arrivants continue d’augmenter, Rome va se retrouver dans une situation délicate », a expliqué un diplomate européen. « Il n’existe pas de solution simple. Je ne pense pas que les autres (Etats) se réjouiront à l’idée d’accueillir ces navires dans leurs ports », a-t-il ajouté.

          Ransomware has been around for almost 30 years, so why does it feel like it's getting worse?   

Ransomware is not new. The malware, which encrypts data and demands payment in exchange for decryption keys, has been with us for almost 30 years.

So why does it feel like it's getting worse? Well, that's because it is getting worse.

In seemingly no time at all, ransomware has gone from an obscure threat faced by a select few to a plague crippling hospitals, banks, public transportation systems, and even video games. Frustratingly, the explosive growth of ransomware shows no signs of abating - leaving victims wondering why them, and why now?

The answer to both of those questions involves cryptocurrency and the National Security Agency.

But first, a little history

The first known ransomware attack hit the healthcare industry way back in 1989. According to the cybersecurity blog Practically Unhackable, a biologist by the name of Joseph Popp sent close to 20,000 floppy disks to researchers claiming they contained a survey which would help scientists determine a patient's risk for contracting HIV.

What was left unmentioned in the promotional material was that the disks also encrypted file names on infected computers - rendering them practically unusable. Instead of their typical boot screens, victims were shown a message demanding a $189 payment in order to unlock the system.

The message displayed by PC Cyborg. PHOTO:  Palo Alto Networks

Popp, who had a PhD from Harvard, was an evolutionary biologist and fell outside of what we think of today as a stereotypical hacker.

According to The Atlantic, after he was arrested and charged with blackmail, Popp insisted that he intended to donate the proceeds from his scheme to HIV-related research.

          This isn't the iPhone 8 - but it's probably really, really close   

It's getting harder and harder to think of opening sentences for all these iPhone 8 rumours, so I'll just get on with it: There's a new iPhone 8 video, crystal clear, showing the device from all sides.

There's one caveat: It's not really the iPhone 8. It's a device manufactured via CNC process, based on 3D CAD plans which allegedly come "directly from the factory in charge of building the new iPhone."

The video, courtesy of @onleaks and Tigermobiles, gives us a detailed look of a device that matches all the latest iPhone 8 rumours.

It has a vertically placed dual rear camera, no visible fingerprint sensor, a screen that covers the entire front side of the phone (save the dip on top to accommodate the sensors and the selfie camera), and a steel frame painted black to match the slightly curved black glass on both sides.

Toward the end of the video, the device is precisely measured from all sides: It's 14.35mm long, 7.5mm thick and 71.03mm wide.

One slightly worrying fact: That camera bump on the back is not small by any means; it adds 1.63mm to the phone's thickness for a total of 9.13mm.

Youtube/ Tiger Mobiles and Twitter/ OnLeaks

To see how all this would look in a case, check out the image below, courtesy of case manufacturer Nodus.

The company claims it had also received CAD models of the new phone from the supply chain, and has already designed a leather/polycarbonate case to match it.

There's nothing here that we haven't seen before, but it is by far the best view of the iPhone 8 we've gotten so far.

Nodus

However, keep in mind that even if those CAD designs are accurate, it's still possible that Apple will change some details before the phone goes into production.

          LG X Charge with 4500mAh battery lands on Comcast's new cellular service   
LG X Power2 comes to North America as the X Charge. LG has announced the X Charge, a budget phone with a 5.5-inch 720p display and a massive battery that is now available on Comcast's new cellular service, Xfinity Mobile. The 4500mAh battery is the largest LG put in a phone thus far, with the brand claiming that the phone will deliver battery life that will last an entire weekend. If that sounds familiar, it's because the X Charge is a rebranded variant of the X Power2, which made its debut earlier this year at MWC. Like the X Power2, there isn't a whole lot to get excited about when it comes to the rest of the specs. The X Charge has a 5.5-inch display with a resolution of 1280 x 720, and the device features an unnamed octa-core processor clocked at 1.5GHz (likely the MediaTek MT6750). It comes with 2GB of RAM, 16GB storage, a microSD slot, 13MP rear camera, 5MP front shooter, LTE (Bands 2/4/5/13), Wi-Fi 802.11b/g/n, Bluetooth 4.2, and microUSB 2.0. The X Charge isn't too bulky...

          Comment on George G. Meade Gets Some Respect by John Foskett   
Actually, he spent some time on Powers Hill. That was after he had to move his HQ because it was under heavy fire from the Confederate artillery bombardment which preceded the charge. Powers Hill was the location of Slocum's HQ, who was in charge of the Federal right. It also was a significant Union artillery platform. Finally, it was - drum roll - the location of a Union signal station with an excellent view of the battlefield. Hancock was in charge of the Union center and Meade was in a location from which he could issue commands and receive reports while observing the battlefield. Sounds pretty effective to me. And vastly different from another command situation which we've discussed at length.
          Comment on George G. Meade Gets Some Respect by monodisperse   
If comparing Malvern Hill and, say, Pickett's Charge you'll find that McClellan was far more in command at the former than Meade was at the latter. McClellan had returned from Harrison's about three or four hours before the attack at Malvern started. He had relieved Sumner from temporary army command (intervening in the Porter-Sumner argument on Porter's side) and was out on another inspection round when there was an artillery bombardment around 1500 (followed by Armistead's brigade advancing skirmishers) and McClellan returned to Malvern House and order Caldwell's brigade to report to Porter. At 1800 DH Hill kicked off the main attack. McClellan was at Malvern House and started pulling in a fresh reserve (Meagher's brigade from Sumner and Sickles' brigade from Hooker). At 1900 he committed these reserve, with Porter leading them down to place them in position. He remained at Malvern watching the engagement from about a mile back with McCall's division in hand as a reserve which he never had to commit. Averell notes that McClellan's CP was under artillery fire (probably overs from the rebels trying to engaged Tyler's guns below McClellan's CP). Meade at Pickett's charge had abandoned his command post when it came under fire and spent it on Cemetery Hill completely out of touch with his commanders on the ground. Hancock really fought the position with no input from his commander. Very different to Porter, who saw McClellan several times in person during the fighting, and relied on his superior to furnish him reserves.

          Legal Marijuana Sales in Nevada: Eight Things You Need to Know   

This article was published in collaboration with AlterNet and first appeared here.

As of 12:01am Saturday, legal adult marijuana sales begin in Nevada. And they will commence immediately, with dispensaries on the Las Vegas Strip announcing plans to be open to usher in Sin City's newest attraction.

[image:1 align:left caption:true]But don't go lighting up on the Strip! Smoking in public is not allowed.

Nevada now joins Alaska, Colorado, Oregon, and Washington in allowing people to legally buy and sell weed in pot shops. It's the first of the states where voters legalized it at the polls to see shops open, getting out of the gate ahead of California, Maine, and Massachusetts.

That's because the state fast-tracked legal pot sales by granting licenses to a few dozen existing medical marijuana dispensaries in order to let them sell to any adults while officials finalized regulations for the legal marijuana market, which was mandated to begin by January 1, 2018.

So, now that you can add legal weed to Las Vegas's allures, here are a few things you need to know:

1. How much can I buy? Visitors and residents alike can purchase up to an ounce of buds and up to an eighth-ounce of marijuana edibles.

2. Where can I buy it? Look for medical marijuana dispensaries that have been granted recreational sales licenses. Those are clustered in the Las Vegas and Reno areas, including dispensaries on the Strip. There's a complete list of dispensaries here, but remember, not all have the recreational sales okay, so if you're about to go shopping, contact them directly to find out.

3. What do I need? You need to be at least 21 and have government-issued ID that says so. If you're a medical marijuana card holder, you don't have to be 21. And you need to have cash. That's because the federal government refuses to let banks handle marijuana business since pot is still federally illegal. Congress is working on this issue, but in the meantime, hit the ATM ahead of shopping.

4. What should I buy? Regular consumers will have a pretty good idea what they like, but novices can consult their budtenders. There will be a variety of high-quality, high-potency strains on sale, both "stimulating" sativas and "enervating" indicas, as well as a dizzying plethora of hybrid strains.

5. What about edibles? Edibles will be on sale, too, in a wide variety of forms, but because of emergency regulations issued Monday by the Department of Taxation, those products can contain no more than 10 milligrams of THC per dose or 100 milligrams per package. That 10 milligram measure is a good one; novice users will certainly feel an impact at that level. But those emergency regs, which also restrict packaging and labeling are likely to produce initial shortages of edibles given the short lag time between their promulgation and opening day.

6. What's it going to cost? Grams will be going for $10 to $15, ounces for anywhere from $150 for bargain buds to $325 for the primo. Edibles prices will depend on the various products.

7. Where can I smoke it? Well, therein lies the rub, especially for visitors. The only places smoking pot is allowed are at your home or on your front porch. There's no smoking it on the Strip, in clubs or casinos, at rock concerts, or any other public place. And there's no smoking it in hotel rooms, either. Either a lot of tourists are going to end up with public smoking citations, or they start making local friends in a hurry, or they end up paying smoke damage surcharges on their hotel room credit card bills, or all of the above. This is going to have to change, especially since estimates are nearly two-thirds of legal pot buyers are going to be visitors. In the meantime, it could make edibles more attractive.

8. Can I take it home with me? Not if you live in a state where it is illegal. And if you live in a state where it is legal, why bother? If you get caught trying to bring it onto an airplane, the TSA won't bust you (since they're looking for terrorists, not tourists), but will turn you over to the local cops, who also won't bust you (since your weed isn't illegal in Nevada), but the hassles might cause you to miss your flight.

The first criminal trials relating to the Fukushima nuclear disaster have begun, six years since the triple reactor meltdown. Former residents evacuated from the stricken zone are taking the energy company Tepco to court. Some lost everything they possessed, many lost loved ones, and their case is based on the fact that Tepco never took into account the possible effects of a tsunami on the reactors at the site. "We believe that there should have been thorough countermeasures put in place to protect against a tsunami, and there should have been a clear understanding of that within Tokyo Electric too. I want to know how and why this was being neglected," said the president of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Plaintiffs Ruiko Muto.

          Sooze Orman Has A Change Of Heart   

Has the Sooze had a Road-to-Damascus Experience?

We haven't heard much from the Sooze lately.  Maybe her "You're Approved" program lost its appeal (EDIT: It was cancelled, and the successor program is in limbo - and controversial, apparenty).  Whatever the reason, she's apparently decided to go back to her roots and offer some common-sense advice.  Maybe it's because so many financial advisors now these days are encouraging self-indulgence that going against the flow would get her some attention get her back in the Press.

Or maybe she is just whoring for publicity to sell at $54 online course on finances.  Maybe.  I guess since she can't make money selling "FICO kits" anymore, this seemed like a good deal.

Whatever the reason, it's time to give the Sooze a big hug (at arm's length, with one hand on our wallet, just to be safe) because she's saying something rational for a change, even if she is attempting to personally profit from it.  In a recent CNBC article, she counsels people to spend less money on convenience transactions and points out that these little indulgences cost little by themselves, but  over time they add up to an awful lot of money missing from your bottom line.

Whether is getting takeout food instead of preparing your own meals, or stopping off at Starbucks for a three-dollar coffee, or at leasing a car instead of buying one and taking care of it, the incremental cost of these conveniences can really break the budget of a middle-class person.

I get a lot of flack from people who defend this type of behavior.  They don't believe that not indulging yourself in tiny little luxuries will make a big difference in your life.  After all it's only a dollar here, two dollars there, ten dollars here, or a hundred dollars there.  How could that add up to a million dollars over time?

This also plays into the mentality that if you can't be a billionaire in 10 seconds or less, why bother trying?  You might as well just spend all your money to entertain yourself and wallow in self-pity. And to some extent we all do this, it is a part of human nature.

But having been at both ends of this transaction, I can see how it plays out over time.  When I was very young, I squandered a lot of money on self indulgence and it was pretty stupid.  I did manage to save some money, and over period of thirty years this morphed into a sizable retirement nest egg.  My only regret is not cutting back even just slightly on my self-indulgence in my earlier years and put more money aside, is it would have meant how much larger nest egg at this point in my life - not to mention the option of retiring even earlier.

And we're not talking about extreme sacrifices either.  I get emails from people saying "I don't want to eat ramen noodles to rest of my life" or some such thing.  For some reason, raman noodles get picked on a lot by people who wanted to disavow any kind of frugal lifestyle.  I'm not sure why they pick on ramen noodles.  They probably are not good for you - very high in carbohydrates, and also that powdery flavoring packet that comes with it is usually loaded with salt and MSG.

That is the nature of the "logic" that people use.  It's either caviar or ramen noodles and there's nothing in-between in their mind.  You either go out and have a good time or you live like a monk. There's nothing between these two extremes.  And of course, we call this a straw man argument.  You set up a straw man and then you knock him down which is easy to do because he's made of straw.

But the reality is, if you just cut back by a little bit, you can save an awful lot.  For example if you go out to lunch several times a week at work, consider brown-bagging it for one of those days. The amount of money you save might not be a lot - maybe five to ten dollars or so, but over time, it is going to add up to a significant amount in your retirement account.  When you get comfortable this, think about maybe brown-bagging it two days a week and so forth.  You might also find ancillary benefits in that going out to lunch with your co-workers can being emotional drag and also make you look like a slacker to your superiors - as usually these lunches extend for more than an hour.

Or take leasing. Many young people are lured into leasing a car because the monthly cost is lower. However the overall transaction cost is far higher, something most people realize when they try to turn the car in at the end of the lease and are socked with a lot of back-end charges.  All cars are used cars the moment you buy them.  So why not consider buying a two- to three-year-old car that is off-lease that some other idiot paid all the depreciation on and drive that instead?

A two- to three-year-old car looks just like a new car. I remember when I was at the Patent Office I bought a second-hand Camry from Avis.  I'm not necessarily recommending you buy a used rental car, but for me it was so much cheaper deal than a brand new car.  And all of my neighbors thought I had a brand new car, so if you're looking for bragging rights there really is no difference.  And realize that usually buying a new car is nothing more than bragging rights.  Just get over that and acknowledge your own human frailty - we all have the same problem.

But getting back to the Sooze, maybe this is a dawn of a new era from Ms. Orman.  Maybe from now on she'll start offering practical advice instead of going on television and telling people they're "approved" to buy things.  Quite frankly she lost me when she started going down that road.  She went from offering frugal advice to saying "you're approved" to buy a Sea Ray boat or a Buick car, after those companies sponsored her and paid her to endorse the products.

On the one hand, I don't blame her for going after the money, as we all need to make a living in this world and it's very hard to avoid the temptation of being corrupted by commercial influences.  We live in a capitalist society and you have to exploit your opportunities when they arise.

Corporate sponsorships can be a double-edged sword, as perhaps she is finding out.  Many people come including myself, criticized her for taking all these sponsorship deals as well as her "You're Approved!" television show as cheapening her overall message and reputation.

Sadly, it seems that most people just don't get this, or at least the television people think that we don't get it.  The shouting guy on the financial Channel still screams buy and sell for various sketchy stock deals which usually end up being a raw deal for the small investor.  The other Financial channels just hype the stock price and never talk about anything else such as profitability, P/E ratios, and least of all, dividends.  You would think from watching television that the only thing that matters about a company is its market cap.  The reality is of course, that market cap really needs nothing and if you were using that as a metric for evaluating a company, you have a broken compass.

So here's to the "new" Suze Orman.  Let's hope she is going back on track to her old advice and echewing the corruption of our secular world.  And hopefully, maybe she'll find an audience for this good advice.  But I would not pay $54 for it.

But given the feedback I've received from some readers, I think that she would be better off telling people what their approved for, is that seems to be when people like.  No one wants to hear hard truths - that's not marketable!

          Index Funds?   
What are index funds and should you invest in them?

A few years back, a reader wrote that I should look into index funds.  And I did and bought some shares in a couple of them.  What are index funds?  They are just mutual funds - that follow some stock index.   There are a plethora of mutual funds out there, investing in everything from stocks to bonds, to government bonds, to whatever.   And each fund usually has some sort of goal or strategy.  Small Cap, Large Cap, foreign bonds, US bonds, Municipal Bonds, tech stocks, energy stocks, income stocks, or whatever.

And each fund has a fund manager or managers who manage the fund and decide what to invest in.  And for the most part, you have no idea on what they are investing in, on a day-to-day basis.   You can sort of get an idea from the prospectus and annual report, but you don't know what they are buying and selling in real-time.   You are leaving it to an expert to make sound decisions, and he generally gets paid more for making better decisions, so his interests are aligned with yours.

Compare this to hedge funds, where the managers get paid a percentage of the fund balance regardless of whether they make money or not.   You can understand why people are fleeing hedge funds these days - the overhead is high and the returns in recent years are not as attractive.

Mutual funds may have front-end loads or back-end loads or they may be no-load.   For a typical "load" fund may have to pay a fee upfront (deducted from your investment) when you invest, and often this fee goes in part to the salesman who sold you the fund.  Yes, that friendly "investment advisor" isn't working for oxygen, he needs food on his table.  And that is why, when you, as a young person, go to a "storefront" investment advisor (and you know exactly which one I am talking about - coming to a strip mall near you!) they really aren't interested in talking to you unless you have at least $10,000 to invest - so they can make $500 "advising" you which mutual funds to invest in.   If you are just starting out in investing, well, go fuck yourself.   Come back when you got some real money, kid!  (Or at least that was my experience when I was in my 20's).

Some funds have fees (back end loads) you have to pay when you sell shares in the fund.  The idea here is to encourage you to invest for the long haul, rather than trade. So they penalize you when you decide to sell.   And some funds are "no load" which seems to defy gravity.  How does a mutual fund company make money if they are not charging a fee?  Volume?  No, they have something called an expense ratio that they charge to the fund every year.  You don't see this as a line-item on your statement, but it is buried in the annual report somewhere if you look for it.  And no, the friendly storefront investment advisor doesn't mention it unless you ask, and even then....

And let me just say right here that I was invested in mutual funds for well over a decade before I understood any of this.   And yes, I had investment "advisors" tell me I was investing in a "no load" fund which turned out to have a 5% front-end load, of which the advisor got half.   When rolling over a 401(k) or IRA, be particularly aware of this.   You might, after a few years of hard work, accumulate $100,000 or more in your 401(k).   Your friendly "investment advisor" will suggest you roll this over when you leave the company.   And if you are not careful, he may skim 5% off the top when you move the funds to his company - as a State Farm rep once tried to do with me.

It seems that no matter what investment house you use, the want you to "roll over" your investments to their little playpen, and usually there is a reason for this - a monetary reason.   Caveat Emptor.

But there are "no load" funds out there, and these funds make their money for their managers through the expense ratio fees.  And some funds charge a lot, and some charge a little.  Vanguard has a lot of low expense ratio funds.  And of these, index funds usually have the lowest expense ratios.  Why?  Well an index fund, as the name implies, invests in a "market basket" of stocks that correspond to some market index, such as the Dow Jones Industrial Average (DJIA), the S&P 500, the NASDAQ Composite, or the like.

What are these indexes?  Well, that is the funny thing.  When people say "the stock market went up" or "the stock market went down" they are not talking about the entire market but an index instead.  The DJIA, for example, tries to measure the health of the market using a collection ("market basket") of stocks, usually "blue chip" type stocks.  And who is on this list of stocks and who is not, changes over time.  So in essence, the Dow, Jones people are "managing" your fund by determining what stocks are in the DJIA.   Your management company merely buys these stocks, takes a small, small cut as the expense ratio (like 0.15%) and then pays you the rest.

The advantages touted by such funds are many.   These indexes seem to go up over time far more than many "managed" investments.   People say if you just followed "The Dow" you'd make out better than most prognosticators, over time.   And since the expense ratios are tiny, you don't waste a lot of money on overhead costs.   For the mutual fund company, the costs are low, as a computer can basically trade the stocks automatically, as each person buys into the fund or sells out.

For example, Vanguard Total Stock Market Index Fund, states its goals as follows:
The Fund seeks to track the performance of a benchmark index that measures the investment return of the overall stock market. The Fund employs a "passive management" approach designed to track the performance of the CRSP US Total Market Index.
So in this case, the "index" is the "US Total Market Index" as determined by the Center for Research in Security Prices (CRSP).   This is an index that actually tries to track the overall market.   How does the fund perform?  What are they invested in ?   Well our friends at Morningstar (who I thought made breakfast sausages, but I was mistaken) have some data on this:

What is a little scary to me about index funds is that these indexes tend to include popular and trendy stocks.   I would not buy Facebook stock on a dare, but since I am invested in mutual funds, I end up owning some of it, although only 1.41% of the overall fund.

Should you invest in an index fund?  Sure, why not.  But not as the only thing you invest in.  Odds are, at your place of work, if you have a 401(k), one of the choices of funds to invest in, is an index fund.   I would not put all my eggs into one fund basket, though, as indexes do go down over time.

Which are the best funds?   Well, it depends on who you ask, and when.  "Investorplace" has a list of the 7 best funds, but they also have a list of 10.  Kiplinger has a list of "only five" funds you need to know about.   Even Motley Fool has a list.   Odds are, your investment house has some of their own funds.  Fidelity and Vanguard have them, I am sure Merrill does as well.  The real decision to make is which index to use and who has the lowest expense ratios.   It goes without saying that paying a "load" on an index fund is sort of pointless.   It is not like they are advising you or trading your shares.

The advantages are many.  It sort of puts your investments on auto-pilot.   The market goes up, you make money.  It goes down, you lose with everyone else (unless your particular index outperforms the overall market).  You don't have to worry about traders churning your account down to zero by making crappy trades.  It is a pretty brainless form of investing.

But for the most part, it is a risk-taking venture, and unless your index fund is indexed on a government bond index or something, you can lose money.   So putting all your eggs into the index-fund basket is, in my opinion, a bad idea.

Last month, I met with a group of labor inspectors in Tunja, Colombia, about two hours east of Bogotá. The workers were on strike for better pay at the time, but that didn’t stop them from readily admitting how much things had been improving of late, both in Tunja and in the country as a whole. The inspectors are charged with a host of responsibilities, including the prevention of child labor, protection of safety and health, administration of payroll taxes, enforcement of wage and hour laws, and resolution of workplace conflict.

          Hanover Park man arrested in connection with Woodstock armed robbery   
WOODSTOCK — A Hanover Park man was charged Thursday with armed robbery, unlawful restraint and mob action in connection with a robbery that took place early Wednesday in Woodstock, police say.

According to a news release from the Woodstock Police Department, Brian Odell, 39, of the 4700 block of Zeppelin Dr., Hanover Park, was arrested Thursday afternoon at his Hanover Park residence by members of the United States Marshal’s Fugitive Task Force. Investigators had identified Odell as one of the suspects responsible for an armed robbery that took place Wednesday at a residence in the 200 block of Throop Street in Woodstock.

When asked if other arrests in connection with the armed robbery would be made, Woodstock Deputy Police Chief Jeffrey Parsons said, "We're still trying to firm up some things. We're sure there are other people involved."

Woodstock police are continuing to follow up on leads regarding the crime, and anyone with related information should call NERCOM at 815-363-2152.

Odell is currently being held on $200,000 bond in McHenry County jail. He was due in court Friday morning.


          Harvard man found guilty of drug charges   
HARVARD – A Harvard man was found guilty of unlawful possession with the intent to deliver both cocaine and heroin, according to the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office.

About 12:15 a.m. Nov. 23, Harvard police made a traffic stop in which 33-year-old Gregorio Pena of Harvard was a passenger. Pena was arrested on an active arrest warrant.

According to a news release from the McHenry County State's Attorney's Office, Pena was seen reaching down the right side of his seat before being arrested. During an inventory search of the vehicle, Harvard Police found a plastic container that contained multiple bags of cocaine and heroin where Pena was reaching, according to the state's attorney's office.

The street level value of the cocaine and heroin was about $1,000, according to the news release.

“We are losing about one person a week to drug overdoses in this community,” McHenry County State’s Attorney Patrick Kenneally said. “Holding the dealers that peddle this filth accountable and seeking extended prison terms is one part of how we are going to turn the tide.”

The case was prosecuted by Assistant State’s Attorneys Alexander J. Geocaris and Kyle R. Bruett.

Pena will be sentenced Aug. 9. The Harvard resident faces between four to 15 years in the Illinois Department of Corrections, according to the news release.

          Report: "Violence and Terror: Findings on Clandestine Graves in Mexico”   
 Translated by Yaqui for Borderland Beat from La Jornada 


        More Than 1000 Clandestine Graves Found in Mexico, 
                Report Confirms and NGO's Denounce

BY: Fernando Camacho Silva
June 22, 2012

Extra Material from TeleSurTV

Mexico City. Throughout the country there are more than a thousand clandestine graves, in which 2,114 human skulls have been found, according to the report Violence and Terror: Findings on Clandestine Graves in Mexico , carried out jointly by various academic and human rights organizations.
During the presentation of the study, Jorge Ruiz and Mónica Meltis, two of the authors of the paper, explained that the methodology of the analysis consisted of gathering hemerographic notes on the subject and data sent by the prosecutors of several states of the Republic , via transparency requests.
Ruiz said that only 12 state procuratorial offices provided information on the clandestine graves found in their territories (Nuevo León, Tamaulipas, Zacatecas, Sinaloa, Coahuila, Durango, Sonora, Oaxaca, San Luis Potosi, Campeche and Quintana Roo), meanwhile the others stated that they had no data on them or were not obliged to provide them.


Another point that draws attention is that prosecutors of some of the entities with the highest levels of violence in the country, such as Guerrero, Jalisco and Chihuahua, are among those who denied having information on the matter.

Likewise, the vast majority of state prosecutors did not give figures on how many bodies were identified, while federal agencies such as the Office of the Attorney General and the Ministry of National Defense provided incomplete numbers.
According to the study, the states with the largest number of clandestine graves are Guerrero (59), Jalisco (53), Chihuahua (47), Coahuila (45), Tamaulipas (40), Nuevo Leon (33) and Michoacán .
Also, the municipalities that concentrated the largest percentage of graves were Durango, Durango (21 percent); San Fernando, Tamaulipas (12 percent); Acapulco, Guerrero (6 percent); La Barca, Jalisco (5 percent); Juárez, Nuevo Leon (5 percent), and Taxco, Guerrero (4 percent).

The country’s decades-long, military-led crackdown on drug cartels has resulted in hundreds of “disappeared” people, with many that are missing or who have been murdered, having no known links to criminal gangs. 



Over 250 human skulls were discovered at the Colinas de Santa Fe area, near the Veracruz harbor. Earliest traces of the mass grave were found in August by the Colectivo Solecito, a grassroots organization of relatives of Mexico’s disappeared.

Ortiz, who is in charge of investigating the discovery, believes the skulls belong to victims of drug cartels. He is currently waiting for US $1.8 million dollars promised by the Mexican government to buy sample materials to identify the remains.


In March, Veracruz Attorney General Jorge Winckler Ortiz accused the Mexican Government of knowing about the mass grave of at least 242 bodies that were discovered in his state earlier that month.

“It is impossible for anyone to have realized what happened here, with the vehicles that were coming in and out, if not with the complicity of government authority,” Ortiz said and added: "I do not understand  how else." HispanTV reports.


Despite having to depend on federal authorities who are believed to be “complicit” in the case, Ortiz continues to work independently with families to find answers.



"They give us just the bones but at least I have them. I can keep (them) somewhere ... I can put a flower on (them)," Colectivo Solecito member Martha Gonzalez told CNN en Español. "And I can know that they are really there and resting."

Veracruz, one of Mexico’s most violent states, is home to armed conflict between drug cartels Los Zetas and Jalisco Nueva Generacion. Within the last year, over 120 graves of suspected drug war victims have been discovered, Mexico’s Secretariat of the Interior .

Many believe Mexico’s federal government is involved in both recruiting members for these cartels and hiding the bodies of victims.

One day for example, policemen in Culiacan were filmed arresting eight young men before handing them over to what was believed to be an organized crime group. The incident echoed the circumstances that led to the disappearance of 43 students at the Ayotzinapa teachers' college, which sparked international outcry more than two years ago.

In 2016, more than 20,000 homicides were reported across Mexico, the highest level registered since Mexican President Enrique Pena Nieto took office in 2012.

                               Disappearances Still Rising in Mexico 2 Years After Ayotzinapa

“Despite this alarming estimate, Mexico has still not realized how serious was the situation of disappearances,” said CNDH state official Ismael Eslava, adding that over 80 percent of the cases were concentrated in 11 out of the 31 states in the country: Guerrero, Nuevo Leon, Veracruz, Zacatecas, Coahuila, Colima, San Luis Potosi, Durango, Jalisco and Sonora.

Most of them are related to confrontations between rival drug cartels, sometimes with the support of authorities, said the report, which based its conclusions on over 500 requests before state and federal courts to find their relatives.


Relatives welcomed the report as an improvement on the usual work of the CNDH, often criticized for reluctantly investigating the cases of disappearances or human rights abuses, especially when they involve local or federal authorities.

The relatives of the victims complained that they have to carry out the search themselves for their loved ones, as the state fails to guarantee justice. However, running such investigations usually exposes them to death threats and other risks.

Between 2007 and September 2016, a total of 855 illegal mass graves were found across Mexico according to the official estimate, while a staggering 30,000 people were reported disappeared, according to a report by the National Commission of Human Rights.

          UNC Football Player Allen Artis Sexual Assault Charges Dropped   

The attorney for North Carolina cornerback Allen Artis announced on Thursday sexual assault charges against his client have been dropped.

Per ABC 11 News, attorney Kerry Sutton made the announcement regarding Artis at a press conference. 

"I'm thankful this process is finally over," Artis said at the press conference. "It's been a long time. It's a bit overwhelming right now."

According to the report, district attorney Jim Woodall said the charges were dropped after the case had been "resolved to the satisfaction of both parties."

Artis was accused of sexual assault and battery against a female in February 2016 and he turned himself into police in September after a misdemeanor warrant was issued for his arrest.

He was suspended from the Tar Heels football team as a result of the allegations. 

In April, the University of North Carolina announced Artis did not violate any school policy following an administrative review of the case. 

Artis said during Thursday's news conference that he hasn't decided if he will continue his football career, noting he was "keeping his options open."

          Pretty Sleazy, Photobucket or: Why the Site Looks Like Hell    
You may have noticed all the big, ugly dials and PLEASE UPDATE YOUR ACCOUNT notices where our site's images used to be. That URL that promises "important info"? It takes you to a whole lot of nothing, so don't waste your time checking it out. Here's what's really going on:

Most of the images on our site are hosted by a service called Photobucket. This service has been offered at no charge for as long as we've been using it. But recently, with no advance warning or notice to its customers, Photobucket pulled a fast one and blocked our site's access to our images, demanding a ransom of $400 per year to restore access. We're not the only site affected by it; lots of sites use the service for image hosting. You can read more about the whole sleazy turn of events in this post from PC World

https://www.pcmag.com/news/354711/photobucket-breaks-image-links-across-the-internet 

Photobucket's behavior couldn't be more underhanded. Of course businesses have the right to charge for their services, but a little advance notice that things were changing was the very least Photobucket could have done. It's such a throat-cutting move, we have to wonder if there's not some kind of accounting scheme straight out of The Producers in play here, where the company is in a position to reap tremendous profits from its own sudden demise. After all, what user could ever trust the company again?

We're not paying Photobucket's ransom, so the site's going to look pretty crappy while we reconfigure. Hang in there with us, we'll be back, looking better than ever. Photobucket's future, on the other hand, is looking considerably less rosy.

          Le numéro trois du Vatican inculpé pour crimes sexuels clame son innocence   
Le numéro trois du Vatican, le cardinal George Pell, inculpé jeudi en Australie pour abus sexuels, a clamé son innocence avant d'annoncer son intention de rentrer en Australie pour se défendre, avec le soutien du Saint-Siège.
Le numéro trois du Vatican inculpé pour crimes sexuels clame son innocence
"Je suis innocent, ces accusations sont fausses", a martelé l'argentier du Saint-Siège dans une courte déclaration lue jeudi matin devant la presse au Vatican.

"L'idée même d'abus sexuel m'est odieuse", a-t-il déclaré, en dénonçant une entreprise "sans relâche de démolition de (son) image" durant l'enquête. "J'ai toujours été complétement cohérent et clair dans mon rejet total de ces allégations", a insisté le cardinal.

"J'ai hâte d'avoir enfin l'occasion d'aller devant un tribunal", a dit George Pell, en annonçant prendre un congé provisoire du Vatican. Il a consulté ses avocats et son médecin pour fixer la date de son retour en Australie, où il a été convoqué par le tribunal de première instance de Melbourne (sud-est) le 18 juillet.

"La procédure de justice m'offre désormais l'occasion de blanchir mon nom et de revenir ici à Rome pour travailler", a-t-il conclu.

Le Saint-Siège a pour sa part accepté "le congé" du prélat sans exiger sa démission, dans un communiqué particulièrement élogieux, soulignant "l'honnêteté" et "le dévouement énergique" du cardinal en charge depuis trois ans de réformer la gestion des affaires économiques au sein de la Curie (gouvernement du Saint-Siège).

Plus haut représentant de l'Eglise catholique en Australie, le prélat de 76 ans est le ministre de l'Economie du Vatican. Il est donc le plus éminent ecclésiastique mis en cause dans une affaire de ce type.

Il avait été interrogé à Rome par la police australienne en octobre.

"La police (de l'Etat) de Victoria a inculpé George Pell pour des délits d'agressions sexuelles anciennes", a déclaré à la presse le commissaire adjoint Shane Patton. "Il y a de nombreux plaignants liés à ces accusations".

L'officier n'a donné aucune précision sur les faits pour lesquels le cardinal est inculpé, ni sur l'âge des victimes présumées.

-'In dubio pro reo'-

L'avocat de deux hommes qui ont porté plainte contre Mgr Pell a affirmé que ses deux clients, qui souhaitent conserver l'anonymat, étaient "ravis".

"Cela a été très dur pour eux d'oser sortir du rang", a déclaré Ingrid Irwin au Melbourne Herald Sun. "Accuser quelqu'un qui pour certains n'est autre que l'adjoint de Dieu leur a créé beaucoup de problèmes."

L'annonce de cette inculpation coïncide avec la fin d'une longue enquête nationale portant sur les réponses institutionnelles apportées en Australie aux abus sexuels commis sur des enfants, finalement demandée par le gouvernement en 2012 après une décennie de pressions de la part des victimes.

La commission d'enquête royale ayant conduit pendant quatre ans ces investigations a recueilli des témoignages éprouvants de milliers de victimes.

Pell L'avocate présidant ces travaux, Gail Furness, avait annoncé en février que 4.444 faits de pédophilie avaient été signalés aux autorités de l'Eglise australienne et qu'entre 1950 et 2010, "7% des prêtres étaient des auteurs présumés" d'abus sexuels sur des enfants.

La moyenne d'âge des victimes était de 10 ans pour les filles et de 11 ans pour les garçons. Des 1.880 pédophiles présumés, 90% étaient des hommes.

Le cardinal Pell avait été entendu trois fois dans ce cadre et a reconnu devant la commission d'enquête avoir "failli" dans sa gestion des prêtres pédophiles dans l'Etat de Victoria dans les années 1970.

L'ecclésiastique avait été ordonné prêtre en 1966 à Rome, avant de revenir en Australie en 1971 où il avait gravi les échelons de la hiérarchie catholique.

Nommé archevêque de Melbourne en 1996, puis de Sydney en 2001, il avait été accusé en 2002 d'abus sexuels pour des faits présumés très anciens mais avait été innocenté par la suite.

Il avait été choisi en 2014 par le pape François pour mettre davantage de transparence dans les finances du Vatican.

Interrogé sur les soupçons pesant sur le cardinal Pell, le pape avait en août 2016 mis en avant la présomption d'innocence.

"Il ne serait pas correct de juger avant la conclusion de cette enquête", avait-il dit lors d'une conférence de presse. "Il y a des doutes, et +in dubio pro reo+ (le doute doit profiter à l'accusé). Nous devons éviter tout procès médiatique, un procès qui s'appuie sur les ragots."


          GST rolls out past midnight from Central Hall of Parliament; Manmohan skips   
New Delhi: The Goods and Services Tax (GST), India's biggest tax reform since Independence, rolled out past midnight Friday in the precincts of the hallowed Central Hall of Parliament to usher in a new indirect tax regime in an event that sought to evoke memories of the famous 'Tryst with Destiny' night the country got freedom in 1947.

A minute after the stroke of midnight, President Pranab Mukherjee and Prime Minister Narendra Modi pressed the button to launch the new indirect tax regime on a digital screen with "GST" emblazoned on it in a golden hue.

Conceived on the principle of 'one nation, one tax, one market', the tax that subsumes 17 central and state levies was launched in the presence of Vice President Hamid Ansari, former Prime Minister H.D. Deve Gowda, Lok Sabha Speaker Sumitra Mahajan, Finance Minister Arun Jaitley, MPs, chief ministers, state finance ministers, officials of the Centre and states.

Notwithstanding the fact that the GST Law was a consensus product evolved over 14 years, the function in colorfully-decked Parliament House was boycotted by major opposition parties like Congress, Trinamool Congress, RJD, DMK and Left parties, saying the government was making a spectacle of a legislation for self-promotion, a charge Jaitley rejected. In keeping with his party's decision, former Primer Minister Manmohan Singh kept away from the event. However, MPs and leaders of Congress allies NCP and Samajwadi Party attended the function.



Addressing the gathering, President Pranab Mukherjee said the introduction of GST is a moment of precedent for the country and a matter of personal satisfaction for him because of his role as Finance Minister earlier. "I had always believed that GST was a matter of time and was happy when it was enacted and I gave assent to the Constitution amendment last year," he said.

He said the new law is a tribute to the maturity and wisdom of Indian democracy. The GST Council was a unique experiment under the Indian Constitution because of the shared sovereignty.

In his speech, Modi said the roll out of GST is the best example of cooperative federalism and success of Indian democracy. "The credit for the new law does not go to one party or one government but was a shared legacy of all," he said.



In a veiled rejoinder to opposition criticism of the midnight function in Parliament, the Prime Minister said there cannot be a "better and sacred" venue than the Central Hall for the historic roll out.

The GST process cannot be confined to just economic system but was a collective effort of all, he said, adding it was a product of long discussions among the best brains of the country. "It is an example of Team India's strength and ability," he said.

Referring to the eminent personalities like Jawaharlal Nehru, Sardar Patel, Maulana Abul Kalam Azad and Babu Rajendra Prasad who had adorned the Central Hall, Modi said like Patel had integrated the country, the GST would integrate the country economically.



He described the GST as 'Good and Simple Tax' -- good because there will be no tax on tax and simple because there will be only one form of tax. It will also help eliminate black money and corruption because of the transparency it seeks to bring in, he said.

Modi said whatever was lacking in growth and development of the country, GST will provide the opportunity to realise them.

Ahead of the launch, the GST Council slashed the rate of fertilisers from 12 per cent to 5 per cent and of exclusive parts of tractors from 28 per cent to 18 per cent to reduce the burden on farmers.

The launch of GST, which the government claimed would result in reduction of prices of articles of common consumption, also came amidst fears from various business sections that prices would go up under the new regime.



Welcoming the gathering, Jaitley described GST as the biggest and most ambitious tax reform which is an achievement of the country through consensus. It highlights the fact that India can rise above narrow politics and work for country's benefit. In making the GST, neither the Centre nor the states gave up their sovereignty.

He said all MPs, state governments, political parties, state finance ministers and dedicated officials of the Centre and states deserved to be appreciated for realising the project of GST Law.

Jaitley said under GST, the revenues will go up as the compliance goes up and the GDP will also increase.

Parliament's Central Hall has witnessed such a function only on three occasions earlier. First was on the occasion of Independence when first Prime Minister Jawaharlal Nehru made the famous 'Tryst with Destiny' speech. The second was on the occasion of silver jubilee of Independence in 1972 and golden jubilee in 1997.

The GST is expected to check tax evasion and broaden tax base. In the new regime, all filings will be done only through electronic mode to ensure non-intrusive administration. This will minimise taxpayers' physical interaction with the tax officials.

The GST regime seeks to reduce rates of over 50 per cent of items of daily use and charge others at much lower rate of 5 per cent, 12 per cent and 18 per cent.

A higher tax rate is imposed on luxury and sin goods at 28 per cent in the new regime. Certain services like telephone, banking and insurance are expected to feel the pinch of higher taxes.

The GST also promises taxpayers a refund against their sales within 60 days. Similarly, exporters will get refund within seven days. For protection of consumer rights, the new law provides anti-profiteering provisions. In a departure from the normal practice, the GST will be administered together by the Centre and the states.

          Woman suspected of plotting terrorist attack arrested at London's Heathrow airport   
British police have detained a 21-year-old woman at London's Heathrow Airport, placing her under arrest for allegedly planning to mount "acts of terrorism." The woman was apprehended as she stepped off a plane from Istanbul. "Officers from the Met's Counter Terrorism Command (SO15) have this evening, Thursday, 29 June, arrested a 21-year-old woman at Heathrow Airport as she disembarked a flight from Istanbul, Turkey," London Metropolitan Police reported in a statement on Thursday night. The suspect faces charges of "preparation of acts of terrorism under Section 5 of the Terrorism Act 2006," according to the statement. The police noted that the woman, whose identity was not revealed, hails from north London and was taken into custody at a police station in south London. No details have been provided as to the essence of the charges, save for the remark that the woman's arrest is "Syria-related."
          Production outages in Asia lend slight support to prices   

By Mark Tay and Oleg Vukmanovic

SINGAPORE/LONDON (Reuters) - Asian spot LNG prices edged up this week as production outages in Australia, Thailand and Russia provided the spot market with some support after multiple weeks of muted activity in the region.

Spot prices for August delivery edged higher to$5.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) 10 cents higher than last week, said five trading sources on Friday.

Production at the Malaysia-Thailand Joint Development Area (JDA) A-18 block in the Gulf of Thailand, and Australia's Karratha Gas Plant that hosts the North West Shelf (NWS) project was hit by outages on June 24. Meanwhile, Russia's sole LNG plant at the Sakhalin-2 project was stopped for a planned maintenance from mid-June until mid-July.

The series of outages in the region would have typically caused spot prices to spike, traders said, adding that the limited price rise underscored how thin North Asian demand was.

Deal and market activity has been muted despite North Asia heading into the peak summer demand season as inventories in Japan and South Korea remain full.

"All (the North Asian) buyers have stocks, and don't see any urgency to buy," a trader said. "India also will slow down now as a good monsoon means electricity consumption goes down."

The supply disruptions failed to fully reverse weak Asian spot prices, tightening spreads with key European benchmarks to about 50 cents, and helping sustain a three-month trend of rising deliveries to the continent.

The trend took on a global dimension with spot LNG prices in Japan, Mexico, Spain, Britain, Argentina and the United States trading within the closest range seen since 2009/2010, Thomson Reuters LNG analyst Mathilde Jacobsen said.

Tightening global spreads, such as between Asian and European markets, reflect weak Far East demand and healthy supplies, although there is still no underlying convergence between U.S. Henry Hub gas prices and spot LNG prices on international markets.

With more LNG arriving on Europe’s shores, receiving terminals discharged more gas into local grids, terminal send-out data showed.

Outages at North West Shelf, affecting three of five producing trains, had limited impact on spot prices because the plant mostly supplies Japanese customers who have healthy stored inventories, thus curbing spillover into spot markets.

Production at Train 2 is scheduled to restart between July 1-3, while Train 3 is expected to start up over July 10-15, according to trading sources.

Operations at the JDA A-18 natural gas field in the Gulf of Thailand have yet to resume, Thai energy company PTT said on Friday. The firm declined to specify when operations would restart, but added that it was not seeking LNG imports due to sufficient reserves.

          Parents shocked as North Carolina school cop arrested for kidnapping and raping student   
Bond has been set at 2.5 million dollars for a Durham North Carolina school resource officer accused of kidnapping a child and having sexual relations with her. Deputy Christopher Kelly, 40, was charged with, Statutory Sex Offense with a Child, First Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Second Degree Sexual Exploitation of a Minor, Indecent Liberties with a Child, Sex Acts with a Student, and Second Degree Kidnapping. He is currently being held for "safe keeping" in prison. Kelly, who was fired at the end of April as a result of the charges, was the school resource officer at Northern High School in Durham. "I think like anyone else he's nervous, he's scared and he's wanting to have his day in court," said Daniel Meier attorney for the former officer who was allegedly supposed to have been protecting the students from someone like himself. The teenage victim's father said Kelly approached him, and much like an Uncle/niece type of relationship wanted to mentor his daughter. "It seemed appropriate at the time," the father said discussing the relationship with reporters from Eyewitness News 11.
          Missouri cop gets off with boating violation after handcuffing college kid, watching him drown   
Even after claiming he was responsible for the boy's death by watching him drown, this cop is getting off with a slap on the wrist citation Nearly two years after Trooper Anthony Piercy was charged in the death of Brandon Ellingson, who drowned in the Lake of the Ozarks with his hands cuffed behind his back, the case has been closed. Predictably, the offending officer is getting off with less than a slap on the wrist. For handcuffing a college student, negligently casting him into a lake, and watching as he drowned, Trooper Piercy pleaded guilty to a simple boating violation. On May 31, 2014. Trooper Piercy arrested Ellingson under suspicion of OWI and negligently placed the wrong life jacket over the handcuffed 20-year-old's torso. Piercy then drove his patrol boat away from the scene at a high rate of speed. Ellingson was thrown from the craft when it struck a sizeable wake, the life jacket came off, and he drowned with his hands still in cuffs while Piercy callously watched on. "He's an evil person," Ellingson's father Craig told The Daily Beast on Wednesday. "The reason we decided to go to the plea deal was it was tainted down there," in Morgan County, Missouri's court system.
          Michigan mother accused of trying to torch her car with 11-year-old son bound and locked inside   
A mother is accused of trying to torch a car with her 11-year-old son bound and locked inside at a southeast Michigan cemetery. The Monroe County sheriff's office says 48-year-old Sherrie Richter was arraigned Thursday on assault with intent to murder and arson charges. The sheriff's office said preliminary investigations show Richter bound the boy's wrists, locked him inside the car and tried to set two fires in the vehicle at Roselawn Memorial Park, about 10 miles (16 kilometers) northeast of the Ohio state line. She then freed the boy. The mother and son were later found walking in the cemetery. The boy was taken to a hospital as a precaution and released.
