Mengapa Yahudi Terlalu Berkuasa?

Oleh : Dr Farrukh Saleem
Semakan Oleh : Mohd Taha Hassan

There are only 14 million Jews in the world; seven million in the Americas , five million in Asia, two million in Europe and 100,000 in Africa . For every single Jew in the world there are 100 Muslims. Yet, Jews are more than a hundred times more powerful than all the Muslims put together. Ever wondered why?

Hanya ada 14 juta Yahudi di muka bumi ini; tujuh juta di Amerika, lima juta di Asia, dua juta di Eropah dan 100,000 di Afrika. Bagi setiap orang Yahudi ada 100 orang Muslim (1:100). Namun, jika dicampuri semua sekali, Yahudi lebih 100 kali berkuasa daripada orang Islam. Mengapa ini berlaku?

Jesus of Nazareth was Jewish. Albert Einstein, the most influential scientist of all time and TIME magazine's 'Person of the Century', was a Jew. Sigmund Freud -- id, ego, superego -- the father of psychoanalysis was a Jew. So were Paul Samuelson and Milton Friedman.

Nabi Isa (Jesus of Nazareth) ialah Yahudi. Albert Einstein, saintis zaman moden paling terkemuka dan disebut oleh majalah Time sebagai 'Manusia Abad ini' ialah seorang Yahudi; Sigmund Freud - melalui teori id, ego dan super-ego ialah bapa psikoanalisis, juga seorang Yahudi; begitu juga Karl Marx, Paul Samuelson dan Milton Friedman.

Here are a few other Jews whose intellectual output has enriched the whole humanity: Benjamin Rubin gave humanity the vaccinating needle. Jonas Salk developed the first polio vaccine. Alert Sabin developed the improved live polio vaccine. Gertrude Elion gave us a leukaemia fighting drug. Baruch Blumberg developed the vaccination for Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich discovered a treatment for syphilis (a sexually transmitted disease). Elie Metchnikoff won a Nobel Prize in infectious diseases.

Selain mereka banyak lagi orang Yahudi yang hasil kebijaksanaan mereka berupaya menghasilkan keperluan untuk kita semua: Benjamin Rubin memperkenalkan jarum suntikan pelalian. Johas Salk mereka vaksin polio yang pertama. Gertrude Elion mencipta ubat melawan leukemia. Baruch Blumberg mencipta vaksin Hepatitis B. Paul Ehrlich menemukan rawatan untuk siflis. Elie Metchnikoff menang Hadiah Nobel untuk penyakit berjangkit.

Bernard Katz won a Nobel Prize in neuromuscular transmission. Andrew Schally won a Nobel in endocrinology (disorders of the endocrine system; diabetes, hyperthyroidism). Aaron Beck founded Cognitive Therapy (psychotherapy to treat mental disorders, depression and phobias). Gregory Pincus developed the first oral contraceptive pill. George Wald won a Nobel for furthering our understanding of the human eye. Stanley Cohen won a Nobel in embryology (study of embryos and their development). Willem Kolff came up with the kidney dialysis machine.

Bernard Katz menang Hadiah Nobel kerana kajian mengenai transmisi neuromuskular. Andrew Schally penerima Nobel dalam kajian endokrinologi (berkaitan sistem endokrin dan kencing manis). Aaron Beck menemui terapi kognitif (rawatan mental, kesugulan dan fobia). Gregory Pincus membangunkan pil perancang keluarga yang pertama. George Wald menang Nobel bagi kajian mata manusia, Standley Cohen dianugerahi Hadiah Nobel dalam kajian embriologi (kajian janin dan perkembangannya). Willem Kolff mencipta mesin dialisis (mencuci) buah pinggang.

Over the past 105 years, 14 million Jews have won 15-dozen Nobel Prizes while only three Nobel Prizes have been won by 1.4 billion Muslims (other than Peace Prizes).

Sejak 105 tahun, 14 juta Yahudi menang 15 dozen Hadiah Nobel, sementara tiga dimenangi oleh 1.4 bilion umat Islam.

Why are Jews so powerful? Stanley Mezor invented the first micro-processing chip. Leo Szilard developed the first nuclear chain reactor. Peter Schultz, optical fibre cable; Charles Adler, traffic lights; Benno Strauss, Stainless steel; Isador Kisee, sound movies; Emile Berliner, telephone microphone and Charles Ginsburg, videotape recorder.

Mengapa Yahudi Terlalu Berkuasa? Stanley Mezor mencipta mikrocip pertama. Leo Szilards membangunkan reaktor rangkaian nuklear pertama; Peter Schultz (kabel gentian optik); Charles Adler (lampu isyarat); Benno Strauss (besi tahan karat - stainless steel); Isador Kisee (sistem suara di pawagam); Emile Berliner (mikrofon untuk telefon) dan Charles Ginsburg (alat pita rakaman).

Famous financiers in the business world who belong to Jewish faith include Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck's), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskins & Robbins) and Bill Rosenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Saudagar jenama terkaya dunia juga dikuasai Yahudi iaitu Ralph Lauren (Polo), Levis Strauss (Levi's Jeans), Howard Schultz (Starbuck's), Sergey Brin (Google), Michael Dell (Dell Computers), Larry Ellison (Oracle), Donna Karan (DKNY), Irv Robbins (Baskin & Robbins) dan Bill Rossenberg (Dunkin Donuts).

Richard Levin, President of Yale University, is a Jew. So are Henry Kissinger (American secretary of state), Alan Greenspan (fed chairman under Reagan, Bush, Clinton and Bush), Joseph Lieberman, Maxim Litvinov (USSR foreign Minister), David Marshal (Singapore's first chief minister), Issac Isaacs (governor-general of Australia), Benjamin Disraeli (British statesman and author), Yevgeny Primakov (Russian PM), Barry Gold water, Jorge Sampaio (president of Portugal), John Deutsch (CIA director), Herb Gray (Canadian deputy PM), Pierre Mendes (French PM), Michael Howard (British home secretary) and Robert Rubin (American secretary of treasury).

Richard Levin, presiden universiti tersohor Yale Universiti ialah seorang Yahudi. Henry Kissinger, Joseph Lieberman dan Madeleine Albright (bekas-bekas Setiausaha Negara AS); Alan Greenspan (bekas pengerusi Rizab Persekutuan AS di bawah Reagan, Bush, Clinton dan Bush); Maxim Litvinov (bekas Menteri Luar Soviet Union); David Marshal (bekas Ketua Menteri pertama Singapura); Isaac Isaacs (bekas Gabenor Jeneral Australia); Benjamin Disraeli (negarawan dan penulis Britian); Yevgeny Primkov (bekas Perdana Menteri Rusia dan bekas jeneral KGB); Jorge Sampaio (bekas Presiden Portugal); Herb Gray (bekas Timbalan Perdana Menteri Kanada); Pierre Mendes (Perdana Menteri ke-143 Perancis); Michael Howard (bekas Setiausaha Negara British); Bruno Kreisky (bekas Canselor Austria) dan Robert Rubin (bekas Setiausaha Perbendaharaan AS).

Dalam dunia media, orang Yahudi yang terkemuka ialah Wolf Blitzer (CNN); Barbara Walters (ABC News); Eugene Meyer (Washington Post); Henry Grunwald (Ketua Editor Time); Katherine Graham (penerbit The Washington Post); Joseph Lelyyeld (Editor Eksekutif, The New York Times) dan Max Frankel (The New York Times).

At the Olympics, Mark Spitz set a record of sorts by wining seven gold medals. Lenny Krayzelburg is a three-time Olympic gold medalist. Spitz, Krayzelburg and Boris Becker are all Jewish.

Di Olimpik, Mark Spitz membolot tujuh pingat emas. Lenny Krayzelburg ialah pemegang tiga kali pingat emas Olimpik. Spitz Krayzelburg dan Boris Becker adalah Yahudi.

Did you know that Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Crystal, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Cary Grant, William Shatner, Jerry Lewis and Peter Falk are all Jewish? As a matter of fact, Hollywood itself was founded by a Jew. Among directors and producers, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1/2/3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One flew over the Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The thief of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) are all Jewish.

Tahukah anda bahawa pelakon pujaan Harrison Ford, George Burns, Tony Curtis, Charles Bronson, Sandra Bullock, Billy Cystal, Woody Allen, Paul Newman, Peter Sellers, Dustin Hoffman, Michael Douglas, Ben Kingsley, Kirk Douglas, Willian Shatner, Jerry Lewis dan Peter Falk semuanya Yahudi? Tambahan lagi, Hollywood sendiri diwujudkan oleh orang Yahudi. Antara pengarah dan penerbit, Steven Spielberg, Mel Brooks, Oliver Stone, Aaron Spelling (Beverly Hills 90210), Neil Simon (The Odd Couple), Andrew Vaina (Rambo 1- 2-3), Michael Man (Starsky and Hutch), Milos Forman (One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest), Douglas Fairbanks (The Thief Of Baghdad) and Ivan Reitman (Ghostbusters) - semuanya adalah Yahudi.

To be certain, Washington is the capital that matters and in Washington the lobby that matters is The American Israel Public Affairs Committee, or AIPAC. Washington knows that if PM Ehud Olmert were to discover that the earth is flat, AIPAC will make the 109th Congress pass a resolution congratulating Olmert on his discovery.

Washington yang merupakan ibu negara Amerika Syarikat, mempunyai satu pertubuhan lobi yang amat berkuasa. Ia dikenali sebagai Jawatankuasa Hal Ehwal Awam Amerika Israel (AIPAC) yang berupaya mempengaruhi Kongres meluluskan resolusi memuji dan 'membuat apa saja' demi Israel. Washington mengetahui bahawa jika PM Ehud Olmert sedar akan wujudnya bahawa bumi ini adalah rata, maka AIPAC akan mengadakan Kongres yang ke 109 untuk meluluskan resolusi bagi memberi ucapan tahniah pada satu pertemuan yang akan diadakan bersama Olmert.

William James Sidis, with an IQ of 250-300, is the brightest human who ever existed. Guess what faith did he belong to?

Tahukah lagi bahawa William James Sidis dengan IQ 250-300 ialah manusia tercerdik. Dia ialah Yahudi. Teka, apakah kepercayaan yang beliau miliki?

So, why are Jews so powerful? Answer: Education.

Oleh yang demikian, mengapa Yahudi terlalu berkuasa? Jawapannya: Pendidikan, pelajaran, ilmu.

Mempengaruhi

Dermawan dan penyangak mata wang, George Soros ialah Yahudi. Dia menderma AS$4 bilion untuk membantu ahli sains dan universiti serata dunia.

Walter Annenberg menderma untuk membina ratusan perpustakaan berjumlah AS$2 bilion.

Jadi, mengapa mereka ini terlalu berkuasa? Mengapa umat Islam terlalu lemah?

Dianggarkan 1,476,233,470 Muslim di atas muka bumi Allah ini. Satu bilion di Asia, 400 juta di Afrika, 44 juta di Eropah dan enam juta di Amerika. Setiap lima insan manusia ialah Muslim. Setiap seorang Hindu ada dua orang Islam, setiap seorang Buddha ada dua orang Islam dan setiap seorang Yahudi ada beratus orang Islam. Mengapa orang Islam terlalu lemah?

Ini jawapannya: Terdapat 57 negara anggota OIC dan jika dicampur semua cuma ada kira-kira 500 buah universiti; atau sebuah universiti untuk setiap tiga juta orang Islam.

AS mempunyai 5,758 universiti dan India ada 8,407. Pada 2004, Shanghai Jiao Tong Universiti membuat kajian 'Kedudukan Akademik Universiti-universiti Dunia' - dan menakjubkan - tiada satu pun universiti-negara Islam yang berada di puncak 500.

Data yang dikumpul dari UNDP, tahap celik huruf di negara maju ialah hampir 90 peratus dan 15 negara itu mempunyai 100 peratus celik huruf. Negara majoriti penduduk Islam, purata kadar celik huruf ialah sekitar 40 peratus dan tiada negara yang mempunyai 100 peratus semuanya celik huruf.

Sekitar 98 peratus penduduk di negara maju menamatkan sekurang-kurang sekolah rendah, sementara hanya 50 peratus di negara majoriti Islam. Sekitar 40 peratus penduduk di negara maju memasuki universiti, sementara hanya 2 peratus di negara majoriti Islam.

Negara-negara majoriti Islam mempunyai 230 ahli sains bagi setiap (per) sejuta penduduk. Di AS 4,000 per sejuta, Jepun 5,000 per sejuta. Di seluruh negara Arab, penyelidik sepenuh masa ialah 35,000 dan hanya 50 juruteknik per sejuta (berbanding di negara maju 1,000 juruteknik per sejuta).

Negara Islam membelanjakan 0.2 peratus daripada KDNK untuk penyelidikan dan pembangunan (R&D) sebaliknya, di negara maju membelanjakan 5 peratus daripada KDNKnya.

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam kurang keupayaan untuk menghasilkan ilmu pengetahuan.

Akhbar harian yang dibaca oleh setiap 1,000 orang dan jumlah judul buku yang dibaca oleh setiap sejuta orang adalah dua angka tunjuk bagi menentukan sama ada ilmu pengetahuan disalurkan ke dalam masyarakat.

Di Pakistan, hanya ada 23 akhbar harian per 1,000 rakyat Pakistan sementara nisbah di Singapura ialah 360. Di UK, jumlah judul buku per juta orang ialah 2,000 sementara di Mesir ialah 20.

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam gagal menyalurkan ilmu pengetahuan.

Yang menariknya, jumlah terkumpul KDNK tahunan 57 buah negara ahli OIC ialah di bawah AS$2 trilion. Amerika sahaja, menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan bernilai AS$12 trilion, China AS$8 trilion, Jepun AS$3.8 trilion dan Jerman AS$2.4 trilion.

Pengeluar minyak yang kaya, Arab Saudi, UAE, Kuwait, Qatar secara rangkuman menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan (rata-rata minyak) bernilai AS$500 bilion; Sepanyol sahaja menghasilkan barangan dan perkhidmatan bernilai lebih AS$1 trilion, Poland AS$489 bilion dan Thailand AS$545 bilion.

Jadi, mengapa orang Islam tidak berkuasa dan orang Yahudi paling berkuasa?

Jawapannya ialah: Kurangnya ilmu. Kurangnya pendidikan dan kurangnya pelajaran.

Amené par leur capitaine Mélanie Panafieu et ses deux entraîneurs David Pasin et Fabien Bonneviale, le groupe de filles a su petit à petit s'imposer grâce à une...

          This résumé for Elon Musk proves you never, ever need to use more than one page   
Let's say you are Elon Musk, one of the most influential entrepreneurs in tech history whose career spans two decades of successful startups.
          Carnet politique 4   
Samedi Ah, la miséricorde des sacrées nuits du Ramadhan ! Démonstration, à l’APN, Abdelmadjid Tebboune annonce en soirée que le président Abdelaziz Bouteflika a «donné instruction pour organiser une session spéciale du bac pour les élèves exclus de la dernière session du bac pour raison de retard». En plus de constituer un désaveu à la logique que voulait imposer la ministre de l’Education, Nouria Benghabrit, cette magnanimité présidentielle a provoqué une onde de choc : certains demandent même d’instaurer une session de rattrapage pour tout et pour rien. Comme le site satirique El Manchar qui annonce que «Bouteflika ordonne l’organisation d’une seconde session du Ramadhan pour les non-jeûneurs qui pour des raisons religieuses ou idéologiques ont refusé de jeûner pendant le le mois sacré, mais aussi les musulmans qui, distraits, ont mangé ou bu après al imsaak».   Tebboune toujours : le PM annonce aussi la prochaine installation d’une «commission nationale consultative» pour l’examen du dossier du soutien destiné aux catégories démunies de la société, chargée de l’élaboration des lois et mesures à même de permettre le ciblage des personnes ouvrant droit au soutien de l’Etat dans le cadre des efforts visant à consacrer le caractère social de l’Etat. Pour résumer, consulter certains pour savoir à qui on maintient les subventions. Parler à qui ? A ceux que le gouvernement choisira. Pas plus. Dimanche C’est l’Aïd, la fête, les bisous, les gâteaux et les gastros ! Débats éternels sur le taux de commerçants qui ont ouvert, avec, en toute honnêteté, un mieux par rapport aux années écoulées (à Alger cela dit). Mais il y avait autre chose à célébrer aussi en ce jour : la mémoire de Matoub Lounès ! Chez lui, à Taourirt Moussa, ils étaient des milliers, selon nos collègues de Kabylie, venus rendre hommage au Rebelle, assassiné le 25 juin 1998. Cette semaine a son cortège des hommages et des douleurs : Matoub le 25, Boudiaf le 29 ! Des assassinats qui, au-delà des enquêtes ou des commissions, des récits des uns et des autres, restent comme des points de fixation des tensions entre peuple et gouvernants. Au-delà de l’obsession légitime de la vérité, s’impose la volonté de juger un système volatile et impuni, incapable de s’autocritiquer, incapable de produire de l’avenir. Lundi Des youyous et d’inutiles feux d’artifice en préparation. Le taux de réussite à l’examen du Brevet d’enseignement moyen (BEM) (session juin 2017) a atteint 56,33% au niveau national. Mais pour le ministère de l’Education, ce taux est quand même jugé «relativement faible». A la Chaîne III de la radio étatique, Samia Mezaïb, directrice de l’évaluation et de la prospection au ministère de l’Education, a expliqué que la faiblesse relative des réussites résulte du cumul de plusieurs facteurs, dont celui des programmes élaborés «dans l’urgence», ainsi que la formation des enseignants qui n’a pas toujours été à la hauteur des dispositions de la nouvelle réforme de l’enseignement. La responsable pointe également les manquements en termes de formation en mathématiques chez les enseignants. Au moins, nous avons un secteur qui s’évalue et fait dans l’autocritique. C’est déjà ça, même sous le 4e mandat !   Mardi Il y a quelque chose de gênant chez Mme Saïda Benhabylès, présidente du Croissant-Rouge algérien. Quand elle se déplace pour visiter des migrants installés dans un campement à Alger-Est, elle tente de prononcer de grands discours («L’Algérie est en train de gérer avec courage les erreurs stratégiques des grandes puissances qui sont à l’origine de nombreux drames humanitaires»), et elle rentre dans le mur de la propagande infantile en disant que la campagne haineuse est orchestrée pour «salir l’image de l’Algérie» ! A part quelques groupuscules d’extrême droite en Europe et des débiles droitiers en France, qui vous cherche la petite bête ? Des Algériens, stupides et intolérants, il en existe : faudra leur parler à eux et non pas nous bassiner encore et encore avec «l’image de l’Algérie». Car, entre nous, qui fait le plus mal à l’image du pays ? N’est-ce pas le régime et ses petits voyous satellitaires ? L’occasion ici, par ailleurs, de rappeler l’engagement de Tebboune sur la régularisation des migrants (car c’est de cela qu’il s’agit, sauf erreur d’interprétation de sa déclaration vendredi soir à l’APN) : cela représenterait un symbole magnifique de notre solidarité obligatoire avec nos amis migrants, tous les migrants, tous les étrangers sur cette terre d’Algérie que nos martyrs ont rêvé fraternelle.   Mercredi Abdelmadjid Tebboune, nostalgique des années où le cinéma algérien twistait avec le succès mondial, a une belle idée : relancer l’industrie cinématographique algérienne. «Il y avait une industrie (cinématographique), nous allons la reprendre, l’Algérie était leader à l’échelle arabe et africaine dans le domaine du cinéma (…) Nous avons toutes les compétences et ressources humaines, il manque juste quelques moyens matériels qui seront remis aux mains de la famille du cinéma», a déclaré Tebboune. Alors quelques remarques, surtout concernant le dernier point en parlant des «quelques moyens matériels» : surtout ne donnez rien à personne alors que le secteur de la culture est miné par une effroyable corruption, où seuls les amis du ministère des hauteurs des Anassers sont les seuls bénéficiaires. Ceux, véritables héritiers du grand cinéma innovant et combatif algérien, ceux qui raflent des prix ailleurs et du mépris des bureaucrates ici, ceux-là sont hors radar des systèmes de rapine, heureusement, de la culture officielle qui bouffe des milliards pour de creux biopics ou de la propagande ! Si vous voulez relancer le cinéma, Monsieur Tebboune, faut s’occuper sérieusement des brutes et des truands. Jeudi «Ni la démagogie, ni les basses manœuvres n’ont pu empêcher la déconfiture d’un régime maintenu coûte que coûte, au mépris de toutes les aspirations et de tous les espoirs du peuple algérien. L’élimination de Ben Bella démontre en outre la justesse de nos positions. Mais le changement intervenu à Alger ne peut nous satisfaire. C’est tout le système qui était condamné et qui doit disparaître. Le mécontentement légitime des masses algériennes et leurs revendications constantes montrent que jamais elles n’accepteront comme solution à leurs problèmes la perpétuation du benbellisme même sans Ben Bella. La catastrophe économique exige une transformation totale des structures et des méthodes existantes. Nous irons tout droit à une dictature forcenée ou à une ‘‘congolisation’’ désastreuse si des solutions politiques ne sont pas dégagées dans les plus brefs délais ; il ne peut y avoir de demi-solutions, il faut que l’Algérie ait à sa tête un véritable pouvoir révolutionnaire et socialiste, issu des masses laborieuses, capable de promouvoir une politique hardie et réaliste et de parer aux urgences les plus flagrantes». Mohamed Boudiaf, déclaration après le coup d’Etat militaire du colonel Mohamed Boukharouba du 19 juin 1965.
          Mohamed Boudiaf : Quand Ben Bella s’acharne contre Si Tayeb El Watani   
A l’occasion du 25e anniversaire de son assassinat, El Watan Week-end a choisi de revenir sur un épisode peu connu de la vie de Mohamed Boudiaf. Vendredi 21 juin 1963. Midi. Pont d’Hydra. Un homme filiforme, habillé d’un complet veston, marche à petits pas. Deux individus à la mine patibulaire l’accostent. Bref échange. L’homme est embarqué dans la Peugeot 404 garée sur cette route. Mohamed Boudiaf vient d’être enlevé par le commando du président Ahmed Ben Bella. Dans son livre Où va l’Algérie, il en donne le signalement : l’un des agents dénommé Mohamed S., quinquagénaire, est un ex-agent zélé de la police des renseignements généraux et de la DST à Alger où il a sévi lors des événements de mai 1945 et de l’arraisonnement de l’avion des Cinq en octobre 1956. Le second agent, «plus replet et aux gestes brusques», est un «militant» «parfaitement imbu de son rôle et pénétré de son importance policière». Demandant à Boudiaf de se mettre à leur disposition au nom de la SM, ils l’embarquent dans la berline qui démarre en trombe. Itinéraire : la colonne Voirol, chemin Beaurepaire, clinique des Orangers et arrivée dans une villa «fleurie» des environs. Boudiaf, extrêmement fatigué, est fouillé «des pieds à la tête». Mais aucun des agents ne lui explique les raisons de son arrestation et qui en sont les commanditaires. Il décide alors d’entamer une grève de la faim. «Kidnappé dans le plus grand secret, emmené dans une villa inhabitée sans explication, je ne peux que trouver une allure macabre à toute cette aventure», écrit le «séquestré» dans ce qui devient son journal, qu’il entame le jour même de son interpellation. Durant quatre jours, Boudiaf, qui a été arrêté une première fois une année plus tôt à M’sila (30 juillet 1962), où il est parti dans sa famille des Ouled Madi, cherche désespérément à «communiquer avec les villas voisines, sans résultat». Il décide alors d’écrire à l’«autorité mystérieuse» qui a ordonné son enlèvement. Le lundi, il est embarqué en voiture vers le siège de la gendarmerie (actuellement groupement de gendarmerie d’Alger, Bab J’did). Entouré à son arrivée à la caserne par une dizaine de gendarmes, mitraillettes au poing, «un peu curieux, un peu fébriles», il reconnaît leur chef, le colonel Ahmed Bencherif, qui lui dit, pince-sans-rire, que la chambre qui lui est réservée dans cette caserne coloniale vaut mieux que celle de la prison de la Santé où il était détenu. Compagnons couards Chez les Boudiaf et les militants du Parti de la révolution socialiste (PRS), créé en septembre 1962, c’est la stupéfaction et la rage. «Le problème, c’est qu’on ne savait pas s’il était vivant ou mort. On pensait qu’il était fini et qu’il allait être exécuté», raconte à El Watan Week-end Nacer Boudiaf, âgé à l’époque de 8 ans. Rencontrant leur père pour la première fois une année seulement auparavant, Nacer et sa fratrie (Kheireddine, Fella et Samia) le voient disparaître à nouveau. L’oncle Aïssa décide d’aller à la police d’Hydra où les agents «ont nié être au courant de cette affaire». Le frère prend alors l’initiative d’entrer en contact avec certains compagnons de l’ancien coordonnateur du FLN. «Mehri m’a promis d’intercéder en sa faveur auprès de Boumediène. Mais il ne fait rien. Je suis entré en contact avec Bitat. Après un moment d’attente devant sa maison à la rue Bachir Ibrahimi (El Biar), il me reçoit dans le jardin tout en jetant des coups d’œil à droite et à gauche comme s’il y avait des yeux pour le guetter», signale Aïssa dans un entretien à El Khabar hebdo. Le PRS publie dans l’après-midi de l’arrestation un communiqué. L’alerte a été donnée par Rachid Krim, «le fils spirituel de Boudiaf et son chef de cabinet en 1992», actuellement à Paris. L’arrestation de Boudiaf par le président Ben Bella a marqué le clan. «J’ai un oncle, Moussa, actuellement décédé. Il était le premier ambassadeur de l’Algérie à Genève. C’est un ancien militant qui s’est retiré après le kidnapping de Boudiaf par les sbires de Ben Bella», témoigne Nacer, amer. Le pouvoir décide de faire évacuer d’Alger l’encombrant opposant. Le 26 juin, Boudiaf, embastillé dans la caserne de la Haute-Casbah, est réveillé à quatre heures du matin pour être emmené à l’aérodrome de Chéraga, où l’hélicoptère prend l’air en direction de Oued Norson. A bord, il est rejoint par d’autres militants, eux aussi arrêtés par les hommes de Ben Bella : Ali Allouache, ancien porte-parole de la wilaya IV, Moussa Kebaïli et Mohand Akli Benyounes, dit Daniel, anciens de la Fédération de France du FLN. Arrivé à Oued Norson, le groupe est embarqué à bord de voitures légères en direction de Sidi Bel Abbès, Saïda, Mecheria, Aïn Safra et Beni Ounif. Complètement éreintés par un voyage de mille kilomètres, Boudiaf et ses compagnons arrivent à Colomb Béchar à la tombée de la nuit. Tsabit : détenus dans une école désaffectée «Je suis épuisé après ce long voyage, survenu au sixième jour de ma grève de la faim, je décide d’interrompre mon jeûne, croyant candidement qu’à Colomb Béchar le régime politique va nous être appliqué et que nous pourrons engager une grève dans de meilleures conditions», fait remarquer Boudiaf, qui décide d’écrire une lettre au colonel, commandant de la Région militaire. Le 4 juillet, les séquestrés seront dirigés plus au sud où, leur dit-on, ils seront «plus à l’aise» ! Ils seront transbahutés dans d’énormes camions Berliet vers le camp Colonel Lotfi, à Tsabit, localité située à 65 km au nord de la ville d’Adrar, capitale du Touat. La chambre réservée aux prisonniers dans ce qui fut probablement une école de construction récente est trop exiguë : 5 mètres sur trois. Là, dans la caserne Lotfi, Boudiaf arrive à «dialoguer en imagination» avec le colonel, de son nom d’état civil, Ben Ali Boudghène, mort au combat à Béchar avec des dizaines de ses compagnons. «Ce héros, nous ne le renierons pas ! Nous n’abandonnons pas la lutte pour que notre peuple soit le seul maître de son destin», écrit Boudiaf dans son journal en date du 8 juillet. Souffrant des conditions de détention — chaleur suffocante (60°), manque de nourriture —, mais ne subissant pas de sévices particuliers (Aïssa Boudiaf évoque des tortures dans son témoignage), le groupe entame à partir du 15 juillet une grève de la faim. Entre-temps, le pouvoir a décidé de communiquer sur les détenus du Touat. N’indiquant pas où il été interpellé et par quel service, le ministre de la Justice, Amar Bentoumi, a admis en conférence de presse que Boudiaf avait été «appréhendé vendredi 21 juin 1963 en fin de matinée alors qu’il sortait de chez lui». Dans le discours prononcé au Caroubier (Alger), à l’occasion de l’indépendance, le président Ben Bella a «brodé, précise Boudiaf, sur le thème du complot aux ramifications lointaines». Le raïs reprend, en employant sa rhétorique habituelle, les mêmes accusations lors d’une tournée dans le Constantinois. «Ces derniers temps, nous avons arrêté cinq personnes qui ont traité avec le gouvernement français et avec le colonialisme pour instaurer un climat à la Tshombé», signale-t-il. Interrogé par le journaliste français de la RTF (Cinq colonnes à la Une), Georges De Caunes, Ben Bella reconnaît : «Oui, Boudiaf a été arrêté parce qu’il avait des agissements que j’estime dangereux». Il parle aussi d’un complot fomenté par son ancien codétenu du château d’Aulnoy avec la complicité du Ppésident Bourguiba. Face à ces accusations, aucune réaction indignée des compagnons de Boudiaf. Exceptée celle de Hocine Aït Ahmed qui a interpellé Ben Bella à l’Assemblée. L’ancien capitaine de l’ALN Si El Hafidh Yaha parle dans ses mémoires (FFS contre dictature, Koukou) d’une entrevue entre Aït Ahmed et le raïs lors d’une réception organisée en l’honneur de son ami Fethi Dib, responsable des moukhabarat égyptien, et proche de Gamal Abdel Nasser. Le défunt président du FFS rapporte à Yaha la réaction de son interlocuteur : «Ben Bella est buté. Il est décidé à continuer dans sa politique de répression et d’arrestations. Il m’a dit que toute personne qui s’opposera à lui ira les rejoindre en prison». Les prisonniers, détenus dans des conditions difficiles à l’extrême-sud du pays, dénoncent l’aveuglement d’un pouvoir «pré-dictatorial» : ni procès ni même d’interrogatoires dans les lieux où ils sont détenus. «Depuis notre enlèvement, aucun de nous n’a été interrogé. Nous ne savons même pas ce qu’on nous reproche. La vérité est ailleurs : il s’agit d’une basse vengeance personnelle, inspirée par la peur panique devant la montée du mécontentement populaire», estime Tayeb El Watani, dont les activités (entretien à la veille de son arrestation avec le journaliste Paul Marie de la Gorce) dérangeaient le locataire de la Villa-Joly. Petite concession : un poste radio qui leur permet de suivre et de commenter l’actualité. Boudiaf en fait état dans son journal : discours populistes de Ben Bella, démission de Ferhat Abbès de la présidence de l’Assemblée, crise du FFS, conflit avec le Maroc, etc.   Remontée vers le Nord Après une vingtaine de jours passés à Tsabit, Boudiaf et ses compagnons, toujours en grève de la faim, sont emmenés par avion à Béchar, avant d’être transférés à Saïda par Beni Ounif (même itinéraire que le premier). Là, ils seront détenus dans la caserne de gendarmerie de la ville des Eaux, où des médecins dépêchés d’Oran tentent de les persuader de cesser leur grève. Refus. «Rien de nouveau et la grève continue. Mes compagnons sont aussi fatigués et traînent leur faim et leur mauvaise humeur, n’espérant plus rien». Saïda, 7 août. Hospitalisation après aggravation de la situation des détenus. Le groupe décide, le 15 août, d’arrêter sa grève de la faim qui a duré 32 jours «pour reprendre des forces en vue d’une autre action». Conséquence fâcheuse de l’action : ils ont perdu chacun au moins une quinzaine de kilos. «J’ai demandé une bascule pour avoir une idée de mon poids. J’ai été moi-même étonné de la perte de 18 kilos, de 69-70 kilos, mon poids normal, je ne pèse plus que 51 kilos. Mes deux autres compagnons (Kebaïli a été libéré, ndlr) en sont au même point de faiblesse ; l’un et l’autre ont perdu en moyenne 15 kilos. Nous sommes devenus de véritables squelettes désarticulés, incapables du plus petit effort.» 13 août. Boudiaf réussit à envoyer des lettres, l’une à sa femme et l’autre à son frère, pour mettre à nu «les mensonges des déclarations gouvernementales». Agée de 33 ans, sa femme sera elle aussi internée et ne sera libérée qu’après l’intervention de Sellami Zohra, M’silie et future épouse de Ben Bella, explique Nacer. Les autorités qui ont évoqué un accord avec l’opposition ont décidé de libérer en novembre Boudiaf et ses compagnons, rejoints plus tôt par Salah Boubnider, dit Sawt El Arab. Partis à Sidi Bel Abbès, ils se retrouveront à la caserne de gendarmerie de Bab J’did, après une autre grève de la faim (44 jours pour Boudiaf, après près de 5 mois de détention). 15 novembre. Il est 21h30 quand Boudiaf est ramené chez lui «à la surprise de (sa) famille qui ne s’attendait pas à (le) revoir de sitôt». «C’est ainsi que je recouvris la liberté, de la même façon qu’une certaine matinée du 21 juin, je l’avais perdue», s’étonne-t-il. L’inénarrable journaliste, alors correspondant du Monde à Alger, Jean-François Kahn, décrit le mieux l’état d’esprit de l’ancien détenu de Tsabit : «Fidèle à son personnage, dur et tranchant, le même éclat dans le regard et les mains nerveuses, tel est apparu M. Mohamed Boudiaf à sa sortie de prison. Apparemment peu affecté par sa détention, mais légèrement amaigri, l’ancien prisonnier d’Aulnoy s’est tout de suite replongé dans son élément.»
          India launches new economic era with sales tax reform   

By Rajesh Kumar Singh

NEW DELHI (Reuters) - India early on Saturday introduced its biggest tax reform in the 70 years since independence from British colonial rule.

The Goods and Services Tax (GST) replaces more than a dozen federal and state levies and unifying a $2 trillion economy and 1.3 billion people into one of the world's biggest common markets.

The measure is expected to make it easier to do business by simplifying the tax structure and ensuring greater compliance, boosting Prime Minister Narendra Modi's economic credentials before a planned re-election bid in 2019.

At a midnight ceremony in parliament's central hall Modi and President Pranab Mukherjee together launched the new tax by pressing a button.

"With GST, the dream of 'One India, Great India' will come true," Modi said.

For the first midnight ceremony in the central hall in two decades, Modi was joined by his cabinet colleagues, India's central bank chief, a former prime minister and major company executives including Ratan Tata.

The launch, however, was boycotted by several opposition parties including the Congress Party, which first proposed the tax reform before it fell from power three years ago.

Former Prime Minister Manmohan Singh - the architect of India's economic reforms - also gave it a miss.

COMPLEX STRUCTURE

It has taken 14 years for the new sales tax to come into being. But horse trading to get recalcitrant Indian states on board has left Asia's third-largest economy with a complex tax structure.

In contrast to simpler sales taxes in other countries, India's GST has four rates and numerous exemptions.

The official schedule of rates runs to 213 pages and has undergone repeated changes, some taking place as late as on Friday evening.

Many businesses are nervous about how the changes will unfold, with smaller ones saying they will get hit by higher tax rates.

Adding to the complexity, businesses with pan-India operations face filing over 1,000 digital returns a year.

While higher tax rates for services and non-food items are expected to fuel price pressures, compliance is feared to be a major challenge in a country where many entrepreneurs are not computer literate and rely on handwritten ledgers.

"We have jumped into a river but don't know its depth," said A. Subba Rao, an executive director at power firm CLP India.

'ONE TAX, ONE MARKET, ONE NATION'

Poor implementation would deal a blow to an economy that is still recovering from Modi's decision late last year to outlaw 86 percent of the currency in circulation.

In a bid to mitigate the impact on the farm sector, the GST rates for tractors and fertiliser were slashed on Friday to 18 percent and 5 percent, respectively.

HSBC estimates the reform, despite its flaws, could add 0.4 percentage points to economic growth.

An end of tax arbitrage under the GST is estimated to save companies $14 billion in reduced logistics costs and efficiency gains.

As the GST is a value added tax, firms will have an incentive to comply in order to avail credit for taxes already paid. This should widen the tax net, shoring up public finances.

"The old India was economically fragmented," Finance Minister Arun Jaitley said. "The new India will create one tax, one market for one nation."

          Resolviendo el misterio de la sobredosis de heroína: cómo las pequeñas dosis pueden matar [ENG]   

La heroína, al igual que otros opiáceos, deprime la actividad en el centro del cerebro que controla la respiración. A veces, este efecto es tan profunda que el consumidor de drogas muere y se convierte en otra víctima de sobredosis. Algunas de estas víctimas mueren debido a que ha tomado mucho de la droga. Otros mueren después de la auto-administración de una dosis que aparece demasiado pequeño para ser letal, pero ¿por qué? Este es el misterio sobredosis de heroína , y se ha conocido desde hace más de medio siglo.

          How to Increase Your Bench Press by Doing Squats   

My Legs Are Already Big Enough. I Keep Hearing Working Legs Is A MUST. Why Is That So Important?

Believe me? I hated leg workouts. Until I realize the true potential that a simple set of squats could unleash.

Frankly? I see the same people on the leg press machine, leg extensions, doing lunges and doing squats week after week. But for every other muscle group, it's like a new day. There's the familiar faces of course, but there's always new people. It's like working leg is an exclusive club.

And yet that is 50% of your body! Your entire lower body you will neglect because:

? You don't like working legs
? You don't want bigger legs
? Your leg are big enough

But let's suppose? you do work legs. And without much weight at all. Just enough to stimulate your entire body propelling it into new levels of growth. Do you think that is possible?

How can doing squats increase our bench press? If you are stuck on bicep curls, how can incorporating legs into your routine break you thru those plateaus?

I'm here to tell you right now, as you read this, that doing leg workouts is a whole lot more then just getting bigger, more toned, or stronger legs.

Think about it. Testosterone is a primary ingredient of building muscle. So you do a hard set of tricep pushdowns. Your body responds by making more testosterone. Let's just guess at 10% more for the day. Phew. Hard workout. Good job!

Do you qualify as one of those people?

But,? let's say you do a set of breathing squats at 100% intensity.

You just boosted your testosterone production 1000%.

Do you think I'm being facetious?

But back to the purpose of this question. Working your legs isn't an option. It's something you do. So you don't want bigger legs? Fine. Don't pile on the weight. Don't overload them. Just stimulate your metabolism, and stimulate your body changing. So you don't like legs? Get over it.

Fact is, by incorporating legs into your workout, you will see more gains in 6 weeks then most people do in 3 months.

Don't take my word for it. Look around at your gym? The guy with a huge upper body and tiny chicken legs. Do you want to look like that? Who are the bigger guys in your gym? Who are the women that you most want to look like? I can assure you those people do legs. Any top notch physique does legs.

Doing a cardio machine that uses legs is not the same.

So that's why working your legs is so important. Please do not make excuses. You do not have to train to failure where you cannot walk. You don't have to squat 600 lbs. You simply must train the 50% of your body that pretty much 80% of everybody just doesn't do.

Next time you are in the gym take a good look around. Notice the leg equipment. Notice the same people using that week after week.

Become one of the individuals at your gym that trains legs and discover the secret to growth.

Here are the reasons why working every muscle - not just certain ones - is the superior method of getting the results you want:

1. Builds lean muscle
2. Reduces body fat levels
3. Increases energy
4. Balances blood sugar in the body
5. Increases neuromuscular efficiency
6. Improves sexual performance
7. Lowers cholesterol in the body
8. Protects against heart disease
9. Improves mood

All the above reasons are by-products of increased testosterone. For men, this means better muscle gains. For women, don't worry you don't have enough testosterone to get big and bulky like a man. For everybody, working legs will help you with the above factors and assist you in reaching your goals.

          Four Powerful Tricks for Successful Lucid Dreaming   

By definition, Lucid Dreaming means "conscious awareness during the dream state." But how can this be? Every book I've ever read on dreaming has described the dream state as being an entry into the unconscious, so how can you possibly be conscious during dreaming, and be able to enter your dreams. It's an interesting theory, and I've discovered some very positive information that will help you in your Lucid dreaming attempts.

Can you be Conscious while Accessing the Subconscious?

According to Charles McPhee in his book "Stop Sleeping Through your Dreams," the answer to the question on consciousness during sleep is a resounding NO! "Our ability for consciousness-our ability to achieve reflectivity in our minds-is specifically denied us during dream sleep. Single-mindedness is a quality that defines dream experience." If you had the ability to reflect in a dream, you would recognize instantly that you were dreaming, and wake-up, and this is why it becomes difficult to judge and evaluate our dream experience.

An important event occurs with our muscle system with the onset of dream sleep. The main motor neurons of the body are inhibited, which prevents us from "physically" acting out dreams - you wouldn't want to actually leap out of bed and start flying around the house; this would create chaos everywhere at night and you would wake up exhausted. Unfortunately, after the motor neurons are shut down, so is the ability for consciousness during dream sleep.

100 Minutes a Night for Lucid Dreaming

When we first awaken from dream sleep, we will have a good chance of recalling our dreams, whereas if awakened from any other stage, we will not even remember dreaming. We enter various stages of sleep during 90-minute cycles all through the night (you can test this by checking the clock before you go to sleep at night, and again when you awaken during the middle of the night.) This means that if you sleep for six hours a night, you will have four "dream cycles" which you can access for information or fun (most people dream an average of 100 minutes a night). In the book "Directed Dreaming," you discover how to ask the proper questions of your dreams in order to receive problem solving information and direction for your life; now you can go one step further and discover how to step into random dreams to find out what clues they are trying to give you.

Trick # 1 - The First Step

The first step to becoming lucid during dreaming is to start trying to recall the previous nights dreams. This takes practice, but it can be accomplished. You will soon find out that if you work backward from the dream, it is easier to piece it together. This is easiest to do, of course, right after you wake up. If a dream is not written down, or recalled quickly, it will be lost forever. When you achieve the ability for lucid dreaming, you will find out that these dreams are recalled easier and do not vanish as quickly; that's where the fun in lucid dreaming comes from! What good is it if you are able to jump into your dreams and "play," then not remember anything about the experience. Remembering your lucid dreams can give you a calming feeling and something to smile about during the day. Soon, you will become aware of what you want to find out in your dreams, and you can tell yourself that the next time you have the dream where you are flying, you will remember that you are dreaming and want to participate in that adventure.

Trick #2 - The Best Time to Become Lucid

One important thing to remember about our dream cycles is that during the night, the time spent dreaming grows progressively longer with each cycle. This means that the longest stretch of dreamtime occurs just before awakening. This is the time you should concentrate on trying to become lucid. You should have tracked your dream cycles (as explained above), and determined approximately when you will reach the 4th cycle, then, when you awaken after the 3rd cycle, you can consciously tell yourself that next time you see or hear something, you will be dreaming, and you would like to be aware of this dream and enter into it.

Trick #3 - Not Sleeping!

It has been found that if you do not get enough sleep, and haven't had time to dream, your body will compensate by dreaming more! It is almost as if it's essential for us to have dream experiences. Therefore, if you are having a hard time becoming lucid in your dreams, you might want to try staying up later for a few nights, and then you will have more dream cycles as you try to "catch-up." When you have these extra dream cycles in the catch-up phase, it's a great opportunity to practice your lucid dreaming, as your cycles will be long, intense, and deep. It is more difficult to wake yourself out of sleep when the body is very tired, making this an excellent opportunity for lucidity!

Trick #4 - Associations

After you have become accustomed to writing down your dreams, it's time to pick out a few common things in the dream that will remind you that you are dreaming. For example, if you commonly dream that you are driving various kinds of sports cars, the thing to tell yourself when you are awake is that the next time you are driving a fancy car you will be dreaming. That way, you create the association in your mind to trigger the unconscious to recognize that as a dream, and help you participate. If you commonly dream of flying, that's also a good clue that you are dreaming, and if you consciously make a note of it, the next time you find yourself flying, you will wonder what you were supposed to remember about flying. If luck is on your side, this association will trigger your thinking that if you're flying, you must be dreaming, and with that instant thought, you will be able to start your adventure into that dream.

The first few times you attempt to do this, the awareness that you are dreaming may wake you up! This is because your consciousness has been activated, and in order to keep dreaming you need to stay in the subconscious. It takes practice to make the acceptance that you are dreaming into a passing thought, and just go with the flow. If you think about it too much, you will wake up (and, of course, will need to try it all over again). Again, according to McPhee, "Whatever you choose as a clue to identify your dreams, the association will carry over to your dreams. As you keep a dream journal and familiarize yourself with the content of your dreams, you can experiment with clues. Before long, the next time you take off in flight or are pursued by some familiar tormentor, there is an exceptionally good chance that you will have the associated thought, "Oh! I must be dreaming." And with this awareness, you will have successfully identified the dreamscape.

What do You Want to Find Out

After you have successfully entered your dreams, the next step is to find out what you want to accomplish by being there. Do you want to make your lucid dream into a fantasy where you physically fight off attackers, or do you want to be the fastest runner in the world and successfully outrun anything that comes after you, or would you rather have fantasies of a sexual nature? This fantasy type of lucid dreaming is fine, but what purpose does it serve? It does not help us resolve anything in real life; but it can be a good stress-reliever. A better way to work with lucid dreaming is to try to get some insight into why the conflict is occurring. If you were to stop those people who are chasing you in your dreams and talk to them, what would they say? Could they reveal to you why you are running and open up the opportunity to explore unconscious fears in real life? Since the unconscious is probably trying to tell you something, it would be best to find out what it is, so you can act on it when you wake up, and resolve these difficult situations. The more you practice, the closer you will get to resolving your issues -- and then you can go back to fantasy dreaming (my guess is that that's probably what you want to do anyway), but since you are taking your time to practice becoming lucid, you might as well make it work to your advantage every now and then.

Technology Can Help As technology advances, so does the opportunity to get help with your Lucidity. There are now high-tech devices that you can use to induce lucid dreams. Most of them can be found in New Age bookstores, or you can go to the library and find mail order catalogs that carry these devices. You can now find popular devices such as eyeshades that detect rapid eye movement and blink a red diode when you start to sleep. This red light is incorporated into the dream, and reminds the dreamer to clue in that he or she is dreaming. If you want to see more Hi-Tech devices, visit: www.reawakener.com/Lucid_Dreaming.htm

Lucid Dreaming - a Gift for Certain People?

It was once thought that lucid dreaming was a gift given only to certain people, much like true Psychics have; but this is not the case. Anyone can learn lucid dreaming; it just takes practice and time. According to Charles McPhee, you must spend the time to identify when your sleep cycles are, and when your dream cycles come. Then, as you become more aware of your sleep cycles, you can prepare mentally for those times. "When you awaken early in the morning, before you roll over and close your eyes for another cycle, be confident that your dreams are on their way. In the early morning hours, you stand on the brink of thirty to forty-minute blocks of nonstop dreamscape action. The trick, of course, is to recognize the dreamscape." (103).

          CN BC: Editorial: Time To Take Action On Marijuana Industry   
Prince George Citizen, 23 Jun 2017 - Thanks, Neil Godbout, for bringing it up (Citizen editorial, June 15). Marijuana is about to become a legal, government-regulated agricultural commodity all across Canada. Mostly, the plant will be cultivated in large greenhouses. Last week, a large greenhouse in the Lower Mainland announced it would no longer cultivate peppers but would switch to growing marijuana. Businesses across every jurisdiction are maneuvering to take advantage of a rare opportunity. This business is coming fast.

          Hari Tatya by P. L. "PuLa" Deshpande   
It's been a couple of years since I translated anything by PuLa. While considering different options about what to translate next, Hari Tatya stood out as a particular appealing candidate. He is so universally identifiable. Hari Tatya - the eccentric but genial family friend with one foot firmly in the distant past that all kids have encountered growing up. Your Hari Tatya might not have been interested in history. Maybe he was into politics, or science, or even astrology. But that does not take away from the HariTatyaness of all Hari Tatyas.
Usual caveats apply - I cannot even pretend to be a good enough translator to keep most of PuLa's magic intact. But even a fraction of the essence of the character sketch should make it readable. And I have changed or omitted some references to make the essay accessible. And used contemporary phrases and expressions.

A couple of days ago, I heard someone use the phrase "irrefutable proof", and I was suddenly reminded of Hari Tatya. I had heard him say "I have irrefutable proof of this!!" hundreds of times during the course of my childhood in Mumbai. So had everyone else who knew him. So much so, that my grandma's nickname for Hari Tatya was "Mr. Irrefutable Proof". 

There was nothing surprising about his penchant for that phrase, because he is always making claims that can't be justified without irrefutable proof. The guy refuses to inhabit the present. And describes the past as if he can see it unfolding in front of his eyes. He's been like that for as long as I can remember. Obviously, I can't remember the first time I saw him. But I am sure he remembers it vividly.

"Purushottam! Come on, son! How can you not remember? It was a Saturday. Late in the afternoon. How can you not remember?"

That's how he's sure to chide me for forgetting the details of my birth.

The remarkable thing about Hari Tatya was how informally he addressed everyone, be they younger or older than him. He is the only person I ever knew who spoke to my generally feared and respected grandpa like an old chum. Of course, we knew him as grandpa's friend. But he was obviously several years younger. Because he generally treated grandpa with respect and veneration. In his own way. He never used the respectful pronoun as is the norm when speaking to elders in India. But whenever grandpa entered the room,  Hari Tatya would sit up straight. Maybe because grandpa gave him some pocket money to tide him over every month. And often provided him with seed funding for his latest entrepreneurial venture.   

No one in the family can remember exactly when this creature named Hari Tatya became a part of our extended household. My grandfather was a very generous man, and a friend to anyone who tried to be his friend. So it was difficult to predict exactly how many people he'd bring home any given evening to have dinner with the family. Of course, in those days of the big joint family, the occasional dinner guest or two didn't really bother those minding the kitchen. In those days, rice, dal, and flour for a meal were measured not by cupfuls, but by fistfuls. The dinner table was populated by not just immediate family, but also uncles, aunts, nephews, nieces, and cousins once, twice, several times removed. There was also the occasional son or daughter of a family friend studying in the city, in addition to ABC's brother-in-law and XYZ's neighbor's son-in-law. So at pretty much any meal, there were always a few unexpected guests present. I don't recall many evenings when our joint family of 12 had less than 25 plates laid out for dinner.

My grandma seemed to me like Annapoorna (the goddess of nourishment) reincarnated. Her hands were blessed with some magical touch that imparted rich flavor even on a glass of water she served. So you can imagine how tasty and welcoming any dinner table she laid out was. Hari Tatya joined our family by turning up at one such dinner table. After that, he kept turning up. He was there with us at joyous occasions. He was with us at sad moments. 

But all those years, even as I grew up and looked different every year, Hari Tatya always looked the same. A simple cotton shirt, modest dhoti, and a rarely-washed Gandhi cap. We kids referred to his style of wearing the cap as "Compass Fashion". If his nose pointed east, then the two ends of his cap seemed to align with the North-South axis, like a compass needle.   

I never had any idea what Hari Tatya did for a living. I only knew that grandpa kept helping him start some "promising new business" every few months. Grandpa had always had a dream of owning and running his own business. But his stable and respected position in society, the steady income his job brought him, and the large family depending on that income, made taking any big risks all but impossible. So he lived his entrepreneurial dream vicariously through Hari Tatya by funding Hari Tatya's ambitious albeit modestly scaled business ideas. 

I remember one monsoon season when grandpa gave Hari Tatya money to start a business selling umbrellas. For the next couple of years, everyone in the family got a new umbrella for free in the first week of June. But I doubt Hari Tatya's umbrella business was profitable any longer than an umbrella mushroom's lifespan. It seemed like grandpa was more devoted to making the umbrella business succeed. I remember he would come home from work in the evening every day and hand Hari Tatya a sheet of paper,

"Here are orders for some umbrellas. Be sure to deliver them to these addresses right away."

Then we kids would accompany Hari Tatya, brand new umbrellas stacked on our heads, making deliveries to customers that grandpa has managed to canvas during his day job. We kids usually didn't move a muscle for anyone else. We'd disappear if anyone else tried to give us a chore. But for Hari Tatya, we didn't mind looking ridiculous walking the streets with those umbrellas on our heads. We loved his company so much, we'd have walked on coals with umbrellas on our heads if he had asked us to.

Hari Tatya told us absorbing stories and taught us fascinating poems and shlokas as we accompanied him. That too at the top of his voice while walking on the street without any regard to passers by. I remember an anecdote from one of our umbrella sorties. We were all walking with those umbrellas stacked on our heads. Hari Tatya told us to put the umbrellas down, and join him on a stone bench on a street square, and regaled us with the story of Sant Ramdas.

He had a truly unique narrative style. As a result of that narrative style, for many years, we kids were under the impression that Hari Tatya, Sant Ramdas, Moropant, Sant Tukaram, Vaman Pandit, Shivaji Maharaj etc. all once lived together in the same neighborhood. Because no matter how far back in the past the event he was narrating had occurred, he effortlessly injected himself into the proceedings. The way he recounted those stories convinced us that he had seen it all unfold in front of his eyes.

"Kids, I tell you, this Ramdas, even as a kid, was quite the character! He would run away and hide somewhere. We'd keep searching, keep seeking, but couldn't find him! His mother would ask us - have you seen my little Narayan anywhere? We'd say, sorry ma'am, we have no idea. Poor woman, she'd keep looking for him all over the village."

"Once she asked the village chief - have you seen my Narayan anywhere? The village chief had the habit of pouncing on any opportunity to be arrogant. He said - Narayan? Which Narayan? There are hundreds of Narayans in this village! Mother said - Please help me, sir. My Narayan. Narayan Thosar. Have you seen him?"

"Poor lady. There were tears in her eyes. And with good reason. Tell me Purushottam, if you go missing some day. And your mother is looking for you everywhere. Won't she tear up? Tell me, Purushottam! Won't she??"

Hari Tatya would narrate this story with so much pathos, that all our eyes would moisten up as well. Then we'd start walking again to make sure the umbrellas were delivered on time. But as our hands held the umbrellas on our heads, our shirt sleeves would be busy wiping our tearful eyes as Hari Tatya continued with Sant Ramdas a.k.a Narayan Thosar's story.

"Narayan's mother was terrified! Fair good-looking little boy. I tell you guys, this Narayan looked so beautiful as a child. Positively radiant.  Plus he'd just had his threading ceremony, and wore a pearl earring. She was aghast - did those Muslim invaders kidnap him to convert him to Islam??? Oh my god!!!"

"And kids, I tell you....those damned Muslim invaders in those days....they weren't decent like Muslims we know today. No! They were just so damn #$%%*&^$#......"

And he'd unleash a barrage of expletives that any other adult would've deemed inappropriate for our supposedly innocent young ears. Maybe it's because of these expletives he let loose so readily, but to our pre-pubescent minds, Hari Tatya seemed like the epitome of valor and courage. 

"So then, hours ticked by. And soon it was afternoon. Still no sign of Narayan! Mother ran home and spread her arms in front of Lord Ram's idol. Ah, how beautiful that idol was, kids, believe me! So divine...."

And Hari Tatya folded his hands to pay respects to that imaginary idol of Lord Ram floating in the air in front of him. We all were still carrying umbrellas. But still, we did our best to twist our arms and pay our respects to the imaginary idol too.

"She said - Goddess Sita, please find me my Narayan, and I will give you an offering of my best clothes and a coconut! Mother said that, and opened the closet to take out her best clothes to offer to the goddess. And lo! Narayan was sitting in the closet!"

"Mother wailed in delight - NAAARAAYANAAAAAAAAAA!!!!!!!!!!"

And Hari Tatya yelled so loudly, that everyone around us on the street stopped whatever they were doing and started staring at us.

"Mother took Narayan in her arms and said - My son, I have been looking for you all over the village. What are you doing here? .... Do you know Purushottam, what Narayan's response was?"

I shook my head.

"Yeah, well, it's difficult for you to know. How would you know? An innocent little child like you can't even imagine what the future Sant Ramdas said. Narayan said...get this, kids.... Narayan said - Mother, I was pondering the fate of the world"

"That's what he said - I was pondering the fate of the world."

Hari Tatya finished the story. He blew his nose. Then he wiped his eyes with his shirt sleeves. All us little umbrella carriers, or chhatrapatis, had no idea what to do next. Hari Tatya regained control of his demeanor and said,

"Just think Purushottam.... he was about your age. And what did he say? I was pondering the fate of the world! Unbelievable! Simply divine! Tell me Purushottam, do you have such a boy in your class? A boy who will hide in the closet? And say - I was pondering the fate of the world?? Is there? Tell me!"

I meekly shook my head.

"Yeah! So that was Ramdas! Saintly right from his childhood. I have irrefutable proof of this. He went on to become Ramdas Swami.... Sant Ramdas. But just because he was a Sant, don't think he was a softie. You should've seen him flex his muscles. The way his biceps sprang up, almost jumping out of his skin, I tell you! All he had to do was bend his arm ever so slightly, and his bicep would spring up. If you struck his bicep with an iron bar, the iron bar would bend! But Sant Ramdas would barely notice the blow. Barely...."

Hari Tatya kept staring into nothingness for a couple of minutes as if he had just seen Sant Ramdas in the flesh. He smiled a little and gradually shook his head in admiration. 

Then suddenly, as if waking up from a dream, he shook his shoulders. And in a voice completely devoid of the narration-specific baritone,  he said,

"Umm....Purushottam....tell me...Nerulkar...Nerulkar is the guy who lives around the corner from the grocery store, right? How many umbrellas has he ordered? Three, right? Let me check..."

Hari Tatya fished out the sheet from his pocket, verified the order, and led our umbrella-bearing procession to the Nerulkar residence. 

No one in that procession had yet truly returned to the present, to the real world. One kid was visualizing the full scale and strength of Sant Ramdas' legendary biceps. Another was wondering how a well-built 10 year could fit inside a 17th century closet in a poor Brahmin family's house. Yet another was promising himself that when he grew up, he'd work out so intensely that an iron bar would bend when struck on his biceps. With all these anachronistic thoughts in our minds, dreamy expressions on our faces, and umbrellas on our heads, we were helping Hari Tatya run his business.

It goes without saying that the umbrella business didn't last long. None of Hari Tatya's businesses did. The reason was obvious to me. Hari Tatya aspired to run those businesses. But his passion and dedication towards running them was nothing compared to the passion and dedication grandpa had for those businesses. But grandpa's passion and dedication was moot, since he couldn't practically quit his job. And Hari Tatya, who was supposed to run the business, usually inhabited a completely different reality.

Later, grandpa gave Hari Tatya money to start a business selling agarbattis (incense sticks). So Hari Tatya started walking around with a big bag of agarbattis hanging from his neck. Grandpa and Hari Tatya would discuss the sales of the day every evening. Often, it'd turn out that Hari Tatya had taken 1 rupee from a customer for an agarbatti pack worth 75 paise, and returned 50 paise instead of 25 paise. And on most days, the bag hanging from his neck was as full in the evening as it had been in the morning. 

But still, after all these discussions, on his way out, Hari Tatya would open the door and happily yell at us kids,

"Jai Jai Raghuveer Samartha!" 

That's a line from the Dasbodh - Sant Ramdas' treatise on spiritual and practical matters. It is particularly known among Marathi people for its guidance on practical matters, a ready reckoner for success, if you will. Hari Tatya was a man who kept quoting that practical treatise at every possible opportunity, but remained utterly and truly impractical. He never reached an appointment on time, never left an appointment on time.

Grandpa and Hari Tatya clearly loved each other, cared for each other. But they also spent several nights arguing with each other. Random corners of various rooms in our house were stacked with unsold inventory from Hari Tatya's failed ventures - from umbrellas to agarbattis to books to backpacks. Once in a while, when we eavesdropped on the arguments, what Hari Tatya said was oddly but somehow appropriately unrelated to the business at hand and more relevant to arcane Maratha history,

"Dude, I have irrefutable proof of this! Come with me to Maval right now! I can literally see where that horse Krishna's hooves landed!" 

And truly, Hari Tatya could probably see where those hooves has landed centuries ago. I often wonder if Hari Tatya's default existence was in the distant past, in the golden age of the Maratha empire. The odd occasion when he acknowledged the 20th century was probably like a dream to him.

"So there we all were. Standing in the royal court with Shivaji Maharaj on the throne. And they brought in the daughter-in-law of Kalyan's vanquished governor. Oh wow! She was absolutely gorgeous! A true beauty if I ever saw one! And as the victorious king, Shivaji Maharaj had the right to have his way with her. She was his for the taking. She was so damn beautiful, I tell you guys! And her flawless milky white complexion! She was at least 6 times as fair as this girl Yami everyone thinks is so fair. And I'm not making this up, boys. I have irrefutable proof of this!"

When I was a kid, our neighbor Yami Gokhale was the benchmark of fair complexion. She had the whitest skin we ever saw. The Gokhales were the only Konknastha Brahmin family in our neighborhood, and Konknastha Brahmins are reputed to have fair/white skins. The rest of us were mainly Deshpande-Kulkarni types with wheatish-to-dark skins. Hari Tatya himself was as dark as the iron pillar in Delhi. So when he said "6 times as fair as this girl Yami", we had genuine trouble imagining how fair the daughter-in-law of Kalyan's vanquished governor must have been. But Hari Tatya had no trouble embellishing his story.

"We were all standing there, staring, admiring her beauty. Maharaj himself was stunned by her beauty..... tell me kids.... Maharaj who???"

We had all memorized the answer to this question thanks to several prior lessons from Hari Tatya,

"GoBrahminPratipalakKshatriyaKulavatansaChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaj!!!"

We kids yelled out the official complete title for Shivaji as if we were orderlies in the Maratha court of the 1600s. When we said this correctly, Hari Tatya regally looked at us with an expression of pride and humility, as if he were Shivaji himself!

"Well done, boys! So anyway....where was I?"

"6 times as fair as Yami" one of us piped up.

"Okay, you idiot. Who was 6 times as fair as Yami?"

"The wife of Kalyan's vanquished governor."

"WIFE????????" Hari Tatya screeched.

We all took a step back.

"You idiot! Where did his wife come from? There in Kalyan, the vanquished governor is splayed out dying, yelling YA ALLAH! YA ALLAH!"

And Hari Tatya laid down on the ground with his limbs flailing in the air, invoking the Koranic almighty.

"He is dying! His wife is next to him, crying! The one they brought to Shivaji Maharaj's court was his beautiful daughter-in-law!" 

"6 times as fair as..."

"YES!" Hari Tatya thundered, "Will you stop obsessing over Yami, for crying out loud?"

The boy looked away and Hari Tatya continued,

"So we were all staring at this exquisite beauty that was the daughter-in-law of Kalyan's vanquished governor. And Maharaj was looking at her too. Oh, and how handsome Maharaj himself looked, I tell you, boys! Eyes like an eagle. Sharp straight nose. Thick flowing beard. Rich well-defined sideburns....."

Whenever Hari Tatya narrated a story about Shivaji Maharaj, this effusive description of his appearance was bound to turn up sooner rather than later. As soon as Hari Tatya mentioned the sideburns, we'd complete the remaining description -

"...the regal crown on his head, the divine Bhavani sword at his waist, a pearl necklace hanging against his chest, a tilak on his forehead....."

When we completed this description, Hari Tatya looked at us all with an expression of genuine bliss and satisfaction.

"Well done, boys!" Hari Tatya nodded and continued, "So Maharaj said to the beauty - betaa, pardaa nikaalo, darney ki koi baat nahin (Child, take off your veil. There is no need to be afraid.)"

All of us had heard the story of the daughter-in-law of Kalyan's vanquished governor dozens of times. But every time, this particular line was delivered in Hindi for some reason.

"So that beauty raised her veil. Maharaj looked at her. And said - Wow! Goddess Bhavani has made you extremely beautiful!"

Because of Hari Tatya's numerous renditions of this story, all us kids grew up assuming that the job of making someone beautiful had been assigned to Goddess Bhavani. In fact, we were so convinced of it, that for many years afterwards, whenever I saw a beautiful woman, I'd think to myself - Goddess Bhavani has done a good job on her!

"Maharaj then said - If my mother had been as good looking as you, then maybe I too would have been good looking! Hearing this, I swear you Purushottam, that lady was so touched, tears started flowing from her eyes. Then Maharaj gave her a sari as a gift, and respectfully sent her back to Kalyan, untouched and unmolested. That's how wise and decent our Maharaj was!"

Just as Hari Tatya finished narrating the story, grandpa showed up. Suddenly, Hari Tatya's demeanor changed, and he earnestly said,

"Listen Purushottam, tomorrow morning, we must leave really early to sell those agarbattis, understand? Later on, the streets get so crowded, that it's difficult to move about!"

Of course, all us kids understood the sudden change in Hari Tatya. In fact, we had an unspoken arrangement with him, in which, if we saw grandpa approaching, we would quietly tell Hari Tatya about it.

This arrangement worked great when we were kids. But kids don't always stay kids. They grow up.

We grew up too. Lost our wide-eyes innocence, and developed a healthy sense of cynicism and sarcasm. We went from revering Hari Tatya to poking fun at Hari Tatya. Once we started making fun of the guy, we realized that grandma had been doing it for ages. If he occasionally turned up late for dinner, grandma would say,

"Oh, you still haven't had dinner, Hari Tatya?? When you didn't show up at the usual time, I thought Shivaji Maharaj insisted you stay over at his palace for dinner!"

Hari Tatya would say nothing.

"Or maybe at Peshwa Bajirao's table tonight.... in a silver plate!"

I don't think the ridicule mattered to Hari Tatya. In fact, I am sure that in his mind, he really had dined with Shivaji Maharaj thousands of times. Once he entered the idyllic world of the past, he completely immersed himself in it. 

Once, our entire family went to Pune for a function. Hari Tatya came with us. For him, Pune, steeped in Maratha history, was Valhalla. Not only did he come with us, but he took all us kids for several walks around the city all week, and all but recounted the history associated with every tiny rock we encountered.

When Hari Tatya took us to the bare spartan innards of the historic Peshwa palace Shanivaarvaada, he told us the story of Peshwa Narayanrao's murder. And of course, he ran around the place yelling,

"UNCLE!! SAVE ME!! UNCLE!! SAVE ME!!"

Be it the reign of Shivaji or the reign of Peshwas, this man was always there. 'How was Hari Tatya present at every historic event related to the Maratha empire in the 17th, 18th, and 19th century?' - was a question we never asked ourselves when we were children. And when we grew up, although we poked a little fun at him, we never asked him that uncomfortable question to force him to confront the fact that his fantasy world was just that - a fantasy.

Hari Tatya led us through the streets of Pune, reliving several processions full of elephants and horses. His eyes had apparently seen the first ever public Ganpati, in Kasba. He didn't just know the details of everything that went on at Lal Mahal; he could even identify the window from which Shaistekhan was hanging when he lost his fingers to Shivaji's sword. 

"And the bugger went to the Mughal emperor Delhi and greeted him with his chopped up fingers!" Hari Tatya told us with ill-concealed glee, "The emperor said to Shaistekhan - Sir Uncle, where are your fingers? Khan said to the emperor - that bastard Shivaji, that rat of the hills, he cut them off! Imagine that! This no-good Shaistekhan called Maharaj a bastard! That damn #$%%@#$$#@@@..."

Hari Tatya, in the presence of us kids, fired at Shaistekhan a colorful expletive of such unbridled hostility, that if the Khan had heard it, he would've presented his hands to Hari Tatya and said, "if you want, cut off my remaining fingers, but please, stop with the profanity!"   

Hari Tatya often turned up when least expected. Similarly, he often disappeared when least expected. On Chaturthi (a holy night for Marathis), if Hari Tatya didn't show up for dinner, even grandma would wonder,

"Where the heck is Hari Tatya? Has he gone to Panipat to wage another ill-advised war?"

Hari Tatya was sorely missed on every holy occasion that he didn't show up, solely for his flair at leading aarti (public prayer). He knew hundreds of of aartis. He seemed to know by heart the aarti for every god and goddess in the Hindu pantheon. When a shirtless Hari Tatya, with tilak on his forehead would start the aarti of the Dashaavtaars in his booming voice, everyone's hands instinctively came together in devotion. And when I say his voice boomed, I mean it! Even the person holding the pooja plate would put it down, probably worried about it vibrating because of the voice.

"AAAARTI SAPREM JAIJAI VITTHAL PARABRAHMAAAA....PHAKTA SANKATI NANAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAA...."

When that "AAAAA" started, all us kids would have bets on who could keep going the longest without stopping for breath.

"PAACHAVE AVATAAR PARICHE DAADHI TISTHASI.....SAHAVAA AVATAAAR..."

By the time he was halfway through the 10 avatars, Hari Tatya's own delirious avatar was worth marveling over. We kids would get caught up in the fervor too. Whenever Hari Tatya became engrossed in the aarti, his right eye developed an odd squint. On such occasions, we kids would turn our back on the holy idols and stare at the divine Hari Tatya instead.

"PINDYA PATAKAA...VAISHNAV NAACHATI..."

At this line, he'd spin on the spot a couple of times. We kids would spin too.

"CHANDRABHAAGE MADHYE SNAAN KARITI"

I can still picture the imaginary dip he would take in the imaginary holy river at this line.

Towards the end of the aarti, his voice got even louder at the DEVAAAA.... and of course, all us kids would join in. That was the only moment in the whole year when we had a license to scream as loudly as we wanted. That's what made Hari Tatya so special to us kids - in his company, we could be what we wished we could be all the time.

Today, after remembering Hari Tatya after all these years, I can't help but get a little choked up. Dozens of people of all ages, appearances, and backgrounds came to visit grandpa when I was growing up. I can remember some of them well, can't even picture the faces of many others. But no one was as memorable as Hari Tatya.

When Hari Tatya walked into the compound of our house, he'd first stop and talk to us kids playing in the yard, and only then go greet the adults. He was popular not only among the kids in my family, but also other kids in the neighborhood, who had no compunctions in calling out his name when they saw him,

"Hariii Taatyaaaaaa!"

Hari Tatya would acknowledge the kid who had called out his name and do his best to entertain. He'd pretend to jump up and down like a monkey, make funny faces, march around like a drummer boy until everyone was laughing. He'd stop whatever he was doing to entertain kids.

Sometimes he'd do this when he was walking with grandpa, engaged in some serious discussion about their latest business venture. Grandpa would discover that he was talking to fresh air, and Hari Tatya had stopped several steps back to make faces at some kid. On such occasions, grandpa scolded him in public, asked him to behave like a grown-up.

But grandpa did love Hari Tatya a lot, like a brother. I never fully understood why the bond between them was so strong, because you couldn't find two men more unlike each other. But the bond was strong. If grandma made some special dessert, grandpa would always remind her to set some aside for Hari Tatya. Not that grandma needed any reminders. She cared about him too. Often she'd tell other women in the kitchen to make sure there's enough food set aside for "that old crow Hari Tatya" in case he dropped by.

Hari Tatya resembled a crow in many ways. When he moved his gaze, he moved not just his eyes, but even his neck, like a crow does. His eyes had a slight squint, like crow's eyes. But his squinted gaze had seen a lot of things that others with a normal gaze missed. He had seen Shivaji's coronation, the third battle of Panipat, the Buradi Ghat skirmish...

"Even if we die, we'll keep fighting on!" Hari Tatya, down on the ground in our front yard with  limbs flailing, hollered Dattaji Shinde's dying words.

Even today when I read Dattaji's tragic death, I see him as Hari Tatya in my front yard. Over the years Hari Tatya got me intimately acquainted with Shivaji, Tanaji, Tukaram, and everyone of any importance in Maratha history.

I never really liked history lessons at school, nor did I fully understand them. School history was infested with dates that had to be memorized. Hari Tatya's history wasn't tangled in the cobwebs of distant dates; it was as alive as he was. And he brought it to life for me.

As a child when I made my first trip to Pune, I was surprised not to see Shivaji or Sambhaji Maharaj there. When the train passed through the Sahyadris, I hoped to catch the glimpse of the Marathi army crossing the hills in full battle gear. Hari Tatya's refusal to think of history in past tense had rubbed of on me. His tendency to inject himself into any event and narrate in first person made it seem like all those events had occurred just before Hari Tatya came to our house.

People often personify History when they say things like "History will remember", "History will note", "History tell us", and so on. Today I realize that the "I" in Hari Tatya's stories was never meant to be Hari Tatya himself, but that personification of History.

"All us soldiers on Sinhagad were terrified by the enemy's swollen ranks, and started running away from battle, when Suryaji stood in our way. WAIT, he shouted at us, I HAVE CUT OFF THE ROPES THAT WE USED TO CLIMB UP. Well, what could we do? There was no way to run. So we turned around and joined the battle again. A sword through an enemy's throat, a spear through another's stomach, we kept going!"

"Tanaji had already been martyred. Shelarmama was wounded, but still fighting. I tell you, Purushottam, I have never seen a man bleed as much as Shelarmama did that night. His clothes were completely red. But oh, when he finally landed a blow on that Udaybhaan.... that was all it tok. Udaybhaan was flat on his back. Soon the tide turned, and we had won. We lit up the signal torches. Shivaji Maharaj saw our signal and reached Sinhagad in an hour."

"When he learned that Tanaji had died, Maharaj started bawling like a baby! Like a baby, I tell you! He said in a broken voice - "I got my gad (fort) back, but I lost my sinha (lion)". Oh, the plaintive voice when he said it, I swear to you Purushottam, I couldn't bear to hear it. I had never and have never since heard Maharaj sound like that. And I have irrefutable proof of this. Not making it up. Even the stones on Sinhagad melted at the intensity of Maharaj's sorrow. That's how Maharaj was. Which Maharaj?"

"GoBrahminPratipalak........" we'd break into our well-rehearsed chant.

As time went by, my childhood too became history. Most of the elders in the family passed away. The house also aged. Maintaining the yard became too much of a hassle, so it was tiled. The little flower garden was gone, as were grandpa, grandma, and dad. I lost touch with most other members of the family as well. There was no way to always keep in touch with Hari Tatya.

Once in a while, the clock turns back, and in the broken glasses of the old house's windows, I see countless reflections from my childhood. Occasionally the scent of an agarbatti, or the first drop of rain on a new umbrella makes me think of Hari Tatya. And his voice starts echoing in my head.

That man, no relation of mine, gave me more than most of my close relatives ever did. He'd take us kids high in the open skies of fantasy on his wings of history. Bring to life everyone from history. He made sure that the roots of the tiny saplings that were our childhoods were buried deep in a glorious past. Hari Tatya never gave us snacks or candy that money could buy, but instilled in us a sense of pride for our heritage that no treasure in the world can.

He strengthened our tiny wrists with the character of the past. I never realized it then, but can see the true value of his efforts now. Those wrists don't always turn the way they are supposed to. But Hari Tatya instilled in us the confidence that if need be, they can turn the course of history.

Now Hari Tatya himself is part of history. Old age made him a shadow of his former self. It was much later, during his last and eventually fatal bout of illness, that I learned Hari Tatya had a grown-up son. He worked in some trading firm in East Africa.

In those final days, when I went to meet him, I couldn't bear to look at what old age had done to him. He was almost fully blind. As he laid there looking weak, his shriveled body didn't even cover half the bed. I sat next to him.

"Hari Tatya, it's me Purushottam."

"Oh Purushotam! Great!" he smiled in the direction of my voice, "As you can see, I am now Surdas! So how have you been? You're in Delhi these days, right?"

"Yes."

"Ah, never got to see Delhi."

"Why don't you come with me?"

"There's no use now. I may be able to visit Delhi, but won't be able to see it, which is the whole point. No, I'll just admire it in my mind."

Hari Tatya felt silent. I felt tempted to gather all my childhood friends, including the 1/6th fair Yami Gokhale, and holler,

"GoBrahminPratipalakKshatriyaKulavatansaChhatrapatiShivajiMaharaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaj!!!"

Maybe it would have brought life back to his eyes, put some meat on his bones, and maybe he'd have said,

"I tell you, Purushottam! We were all standing there dumbfounded in the court at Delhi. And Sadashivrao Bhau was chipping away at the golden throne! With his bare hands! Pieces of gold flying all around, as the rest of us watched, unable to move!"

Come to think of it, Hari Tatya didn't need to see Delhi for all this. Whatever he had seen of history, he hadn't seen with the eyes he lost to old age. I spent several hours with him and left, aware that this might be the last time I get to meet him.

A few days later, Hari Tatya's obituary appeared in the newspaper with the cliched salutations and praises - affectionate, kind, loved by all, etc etc. As I read the obituary, I realized it didn't even come close to capturing the essence of the man. It was the first and last printed record my old childhood friend, who usually lived in the distant past, having any contact with the present. All it did was offer "irrefutable proof" that a man called Hari Tatya had existed in our times.
  

          The C.O.W.S. Workplace Racism 06/29/17   
The Context of White Supremacy hosts our Thursday weekly forum on Workplace Racism. The reason for this program is to refine non-white people's problem-solving skills and to improve how black people think, speak, act and control emotions while on the job. Any listeners who've caluclated the best way to reduce with conflict White and/or non-white co-workers, avoid demotions, write-ups, terminations or other aggression we experience under Racist labor conditions should immediately call in with details. We always welcome the experiences of "black entrepreneurs;" please, tell us how being "self-employed" improves your work experience. We'll hear counter-racist counsel from listeners as well as individual reflections from your own work environment. Gus recommends Victims of Racism write down important workplace events. Documenting your thoughts and workplace occurrences is more dependable than memory, and the act of documenting can clarify your thinking. We'll also ask that non-white listeners share important portions of the policy and procedure from your current place of employment. #AnswersForMiriamCarey INVEST in The COWS - http://paypal.me/GusTRenegade CALL IN NUMBER: 641.715.3640 CODE 564943#

          Comment on I spy with my computer vision eye… Wally? Waldo? by Mind the Leap   
Those articles do a good job of summarising the positive side of what has been achieved (improved classification and prediction) and presenting the point that there is a lot more to intelligence than has been demonstrated so far. Though, as I mention above, a great thing about Hinton's deep learning systems is that they can generate images (and probably sounds) from incomplete or noisy input images, or by exciting high-level neurons that represent that class. Although being able to recognise images or sounds alone makes for pretty shallow "understanding". I think further advances might start to occur when they start trying to mix multiple sensory streams: particularly vision and sound, but eventually tactile senses as well. This could easily be achieved with the minimal changes to the current designs of deep learning architectures. If we can have the machine be shown an image, and it spontaneously generate speech that says what object it recognises, some people would find that a bit eerie. This would approximate playing the naming game with a child. If we could tell the robot a story, and in its "mind" it spontaneously starts generating images that represent the story, we could say that the machine is actually on the way to having a genuine "understanding" of the story. As I describe in this post, advances might also be achieved by expanding the perceptual applications to include things like motion perception: often visible as objects changing position, scale or rotation. One thing that is less obvious, is how to apply deep learning to motion control of robots. That's something I'm still thinking about. Even though I can see great potential in deep learning, I can still see some significant obstacles. Deep learning still uses iterative training techniques, which despite being quicker than they were, are still a far cry from being able to briefly see a person or object once, and then recognising that person or object from obscure angles and distances moments later. Something that people can (sometimes) do very well. Though this might be easily taken care of with some complementary memory processes (much as it seems to be in the brain). And even if current systems for deep learning turns out to have some fatal flaw in being applicable to simulating intelligence, I think the cat is very nearly out of the bag. The neocortex has largely the same structure all over the brain, and we have reasonably good approximations for many of the less regular areas of the brain. So, in my opinion it is only a matter of time before we have intelligent machines. Or machines "intelligent" enough to do most of what we've ever wanted them to, though with certain physical constraints withstanding.

          Did Florida woman’s Facebook post lead to her death?   

A South Florida woman was shot and killed just hours after sharing her story of financial success on Facebook.

The Palm Beach Post reports Makeva Jenkins of Lake Worth was in her home at 2 a.m. Thursday morning when a masked man knocked on the door, walked in and fatally shot the married mother of three following an altercation.

The shooting suspect fled the home in the family car, which deputies found ditched nearby.

Jenkins' death came two hours after she posted to her Facebook page, detailing how she had turned her life around from homelessness to financial prosperity.

“I’m in awe of how far I’ve come,” the post read. “Fast forward to now: We overcame being homeless in 2013/2014 to reaching my six figure mark in 2015 to now making multi six figures. No matter what the road looked like, I followed my heart and stuck with it growing my business. I’m saying this to say, anyone can do it. It takes determination and consistency.”

According to the report, Jenkins, 33, was the manager of The Prime Enterprise Group, a business that creates business plans and marketing strategies for entrepreneurs and small businesses.

Jenkins had attended Barry University in Miami Shores, as well as the University of South Florida. Her children range in age from 1 to 7.

Thursday morning, someone posted to Jenkins' Facebook page that "the news reporters are true."

The Post adds Jenkins had a a seminar scheduled for July that would help people put together business plans to submit to lenders for money.

          Lombalgia: entenda os mecanismos que a causam e como o tratamento conservador pode ajudar.   
Atualmente a lombalgia, popularmente conhecida como dor lombar, afeta mais da metade das pessoas de forma constante. E até 85% da população terá essa dor em algum momento da vida.

Embora existam fatores psicológicos e sociais por trás de tal problema, o estresse mecânico sempre tem um papel importante no desenvolvimento do mesmo, e a fisioterapia é de extrema importância na atuação desse fator.

Mais da metade das lombalgias são idiopáticas, ou seja, sem causa definida. Mas dentro dos fatores que podem causá-la, podemos citar as hérnias de disco entre as principais causas, sendo a maior incidência na coluna cervical e lombar.

A hérnia ocorre quando as fibras do disco intervertebral, que contém o núcleo pulposo (substância que os forma), se rompem. A função dos discos é  absorver impactos do dia-a-dia, e podemos compará-los a uma bolsa de gelatina entre cada vértebra.

                      

    Disco Intervertebral                                             Hérnia de disco
  
Independente de fatores externos, os discos começam a degenerar-se a partir dos 20 anos de idade. Mas fatores como o peso corporal, tensão nos ligamentos e músculos, pressão intra abdominal (conseguida também através de fortalecimento) e cargas externas contribuem para a preservação discal.


As sobrecargas na coluna fazem os discos perderem água (90% da sua composição) como um mecanismo de auto proteção. Ao aliviar a carga, a água é reabsorvida. Porém a sobrecarga contínua e o envelhecimento tornam esse mecanismo cada vez mais ineficaz, e os discos passam a diminuir sua capacidade de reabsorção de água (ficando desidratados e suscetíveis a lesões) e consequentemente de absorção de impactos.

Ao contrário do que se imagina, ficar sentado gera mais carga de compressão sobre a coluna do que manter-se em pé, sendo que manter a postura desleixada, mesmo que agradável, é um agravante para tal.

A nutrição dos discos é feita através de mudanças posturais. Por isso, manter-se fixo, independente do conforto, por longos períodos, é prejudicial.

Além da postura inadequada, movimentos súbitos ou excessivos, e o uso de apenas uma mão constantemente para carregar pesos predispõe a lesões na coluna. Um único e simples movimento com uma carga elevada pode ser o suficiente para que a lesão ocorra; ou ainda diversos movimentos com cargas pequenas.

Dentre os movimentos mais agressivos para os discos encontram-se os de rotação da coluna. Não que não devam ser feitos, mas durante exercícios é preciso a orientação de um bom profissional e no dia-a-dia devem ser realizados da forma menos brusca possível e nunca carregando-se cargas elevadas.

Aliás, a velocidade é praticamente decisiva na incidência da lesão discal. Quanto mais lento um movimento, menor a carga compressiva sobre a coluna.
 
E vibrações também são prejudiciais aos discos. Comuns em cadeiras de massagem, provocam uma piora considerável em quem se arrisca a resolver o problema sem orientação profissional.
 
Sendo assim, após explicações básicas sobre o mal que acomete uma boa parte da população, torna-se necessário explicar qual é o papel da fisioterapia dentro da lombalgia.

Pode-se dizer que a base para uma coluna sem dor é a estabilidade e a flexibilidade. Mas infelizmente o que parece simples não pode ser realizado de qualquer forma, porque o que é benéfico para uma pessoa sem dor pode piorar e muito um quadro onde já existe um problema.

O princípio do tratamento é o ganho de estabilidade para a coluna, que ocorre através da ativação de músculos específicos que irão aumentar a pressão intra abdominal (lembrando que essa pressão em excesso também provoca dor).

Vale explicar que esses músculos devem ser ativados o tempo todo, e para que isso ocorra faz-se necessário um foco em resistência (que fará com que mantenham-se contraídos por muito tempo sem fadigar) e não força, o que explica o índice de dor e lesões em atletas e praticantes de exercícios como musculação.

O famoso abdominal é importantíssimo para o ganho desse aumento de pressão. Entretanto, os convencionais, onde se realiza uma flexão total de tronco, independente das pernas estarem dobradas ou esticadas, geram uma carga de 3.000 Newton na coluna, o equivalente a 305,91 Kg (imagem 1). Em contrapartida, esses mesmos exercícios com o tronco fletido parcialmente diminuem a carga compressiva gerada (imagem 2).

                 


Já a flexibilidade, ao contrário do que se pensa, não é sinônimo de alongamento. Ser flexível é conseguir mover todas as partes do seu corpo no limite máximo (o que não se consegue de um dia para o outro). O alongamento é um exercício para ganho de flexibilidade, porém implica em sustentar a posição por no mínimo trinta segundos. Mas quando o tecido neural (o tecido que recobre o nervo) ou o próprio nervo estão acometidos, fato comum nas hérnias discais, o alongamento agrava o quadro uma vez que estira o tecido e diminui o suprimento de sangue para uma região muito sensível e já danificada. Portanto, é preciso outro recurso, como a mobilização neural, para o retorno da flexibilidade sem danos adicionais.

Além das técnicas e recursos convencionais que a fisioterapia tem a disposição para o tratamento da dor lombar, seja ela idiopática ou secundária as hérnias por exemplo, pode-se citar o método Pilates, tão divulgado atualmente, como um excelente coadjuvante, desde que adaptado para cada necessidade e aplicado por um fisioterapeuta nos casos em que o objetivo é a reabilitação. Esse método trabalha com foco na ativação da musculatura profunda que estabiliza a lombar, movimentos suaves, e uma gama de abdominais com flexão parcial de tronco. Todavia, possui alguns exercícios agressivos e prejudiciais quando a instabilidade da coluna ainda é grande; além do foco em alongamentos que podem ser contra indicados.

Sendo assim, é de fundamental importância uma avaliação fisioterapêutica minuciosa para traçar-se o plano de reabilitação, além da adaptação de métodos parcialmente benéficos como o Pilates e a adição de outros recursos que se fazem necessários. Portanto, cuide da sua saúde buscando um tratamento individual e personalizado que fará toda a diferença no futuro.

          É preciso uma visão mais global do ser humano!   


Após um tempo sem postar, estou de volta! E quero escrever sobre a visão fracionada que muitos profissionais tem tido em relação aos seres humanos.

Tenho encontrado muitos artigos (científicos ou não) descrevendo um método ou técnica como sendo capaz de resolver todos os problemas de saúde das pessoas. E sinceramente, acho essa generalização extremamente prejudicial. Porque o que faz bem para um pode não ser bom, ou até mesmo ruim, para o outro.

Um ótimo exemplo são os alongamentos. Como já foi dito antes, pessoas com o nervo inflamado (normalmente associado a compressão neural, como nas hérnias de disco) não devem realizá-los até que o mesmo esteja desinflamado. Atendi e ainda atendo muitas pessoas com dor lombar que irradia para a perna e que relatam estarem cada vez piores mesmo realizando os alongamentos ensinados em programas de televisão ou revista. Pergunto o por que da realização do alongamento e a resposta é unânime: ouvi falar na tevê, ou pela vizinha, ou li na revista, que é importante alongar, principalmente para a dor lombar. E são nesses casos que mora o perigo. O alongamento pode ser ótimo (embora já existam estudos que dizem não serem de extrema importância), mas assim como tudo, tem contra-indicações.


Infelizmente o pilates, e em alguns casos até mesmo a acupuntura, tem sido vendidos como o melhor e único recurso para tudo: dor de cabeça, lesão ligamentar, hipertensão, dor articular, lombalgia....E deixo a seguinte pergunta: será que aliar métodos não será mais eficaz?

Diante destes fatos, acredito ser mais importante a visão global do ser humano do que utilizar um único recurso para tratar indivíduos diferentes de forma igual. E para auxiliar essa visão, a avaliação é de suma importância. Uma dor pode ser por tensão da musculatura, fraqueza, instabilidade ligamentar, encurtamento muscular, ou pode ainda ter origem emocional...e o tratamento será diferente em todos os casos. Um método como o Pilates, ou a Acupuntura, podem ser benéficos em todos esses casos? Sim, com certeza, mas outros recursos precisarão ser adicionados.

Resolvi escrever sobre isso como um alerta para a população, que sai fazendo tudo aquilo que ouve ser bom sem ao menos procurar um profissional; e claro que também para os profissionais da saúde refletirem e buscarem sempre uma análise crítica de cada caso em particular assim como de cada técnica ou método, sem aceitar algo como verdade absoluta.

E você, concorda que é preciso uma visão mais global e única?

          OHSU researchers: New discovery on obesity-high blood pressure relationship   
Obesity contributes to high blood pressure, but why and how this happens remains unclear. One of the major causes of high blood pressure — or hypertension — is the inappropriate activation of the fight-or-flight sympathetic nervous system response, and most obesity researchers have focused on factors that increase sympathetic activity.

          Você sabe o que é estabilização segmentar?   
A estabilidade segmentar consiste em deixar um segmento do corpo, como a coluna, estável. Mas o que é isso?

Estabilidade é um processo dinâmico que envolve três sistemas do nosso corpo: o ativo, o passivo e o neural.

O sistema ativo é constituído de músculos e tendões, responsáveis pelo suporte e rigidez gerado nas articulações para sustentar as forças que impomos ao nosso corpo. É dividido em local e global.
O sistema ativo local é composto de pequenos músculos ligados às vértebras, que promovem estabilidade da coluna e controle do movimento. Já o global é constituído de músculos de grande torque (força X braço de alavanca) não ligados a coluna.

O sistema passivo é formado pelas vértebras, discos, articulações, ligamentos. Esse sistema é responsável pela maior parte da estabilidade de uma articulação, já que limita a amplitude do movimento evitando exacerbações, como uma hiperextensão do joelho ou cotovelo.

O sistema neural é formado pelo sistema nervoso central (SNC) e sistema nervoso periférico (SNP), ou seja, encéfalo, medula espinhal e nervos.Esse sistema coordena as contrações musculares, sendo responsável pelo controle motor.

Se uma pessoa possui alinhamento postural na posição estática, conseguido através de estabilidade, as contrações musculares se tornam mais eficazes e os movimentos são realizados de forma suave, controlada e sem tensões ou compensações.

Normalmente os músculos responsáveis por estabilizar a coluna devem manter-se levemente contraídos  (ativados) para promover a estabilização. Mas diversos processos fazem com que o indivíduo perca essa capacidade, já que os músculos ficam fracos e atrofiam com o sedentarismo ou processos de lesões e dor. E o segmento lombar é o mais acometido, já que absorve grande parte do impacto gerado na coluna no nosso dia-a-dia.

Estudos já comprovam por exemplo que os multífidos, músculos da coluna responsáveis pela ESV, atrofiam em processos de dor como lombalgia e hérnia discal, e essa má funcionalidade gerada pela fraqueza é responsável pela recorrência da dor. E ganho de força muscular não é suficiente para cessar esse processo, já que apenas resistência é profilaxia para dor.
Mas como o fisioterapeuta promove a estabilização segmentar lombar (ESL)?
Atuando no sistema ativo, e indiretamente, no sistema passivo e neural.

A ES é subdividida em 3 fases:
1ª - Cognitiva - o paciente aprende de forma consciente a contrair os músculos responsáveis pela ES
2ª - Associativa - junto com essa contração consciente movimentos são realizados de forma controlada
3ª - Automatismo - o paciente é capaz de realizar todas as atividades diárias mantendo os músculos que estabilizam a lombar ativados.

Uma vez mantido o automatismo com a prática diária do aprendizado e exercícios que beneficiem a postura, a recorrência de dor e lesões será mínima.

          Pilates Clínico: saiba escolher de acordo com suas necessidades.   
Atualmente a modalidade Pilates tem sido amplamente divulgada, mas poucos sabem as diferenças entre a prática na academia e a prática clínica, assim como as indicações de cada uma.

As aulas de mat Pilates oferecidas na academia são realizadas com o auxílio de acessórios como bola e faixas elásticas e abrangem um público amplo, não diferenciando as necessidades individuais, uma vez que as mesmas são realizadas em grupos. Todos realizam os mesmos exercícios, havendo apenas algumas adaptações caso algum praticante tenha dificuldade na realização do exercício proposto.


Já o Pilates Clínico, quase sempre oferecido em estúdio, possui o diferencial de atender um grupo pequeno de pessoas, normalmente no máximo três por aula, proporcionando maior individualidade, essencial para quem busca objetivos mais específicos, como o tratamento de dores e lesões reabilitados por um fisioterapeuta.

Tendemos a achar que todo e qualquer tipo de exercício é benéfico, mas infelizmente isso não é verdade. Cada um possui necessidades específicas, que variam de acordo com a concomitância de problemas físicos, atividade profissional, hábitos diários, entre outros.

Alongamentos, por exemplo, são contra indicados em caso de irritabilidade neural (inflamação dos nervos, como na síndrome do túnel do carpo e hérnia discal com compressão do nervo isquiático). Já as dores na coluna, seja por fraqueza muscular ou alterações estruturais como hérnias discal, exigem um trabalho mais focado em resistência do que força muscular. E todos esses fatores são levados em consideração no tratamento através do Pilates Clínico após uma avaliação específica.

Sendo assim, torna-se claro a importância de considerar seu principal objetivo e necessidade a fim de escolher uma das modalidades desse método tão divulgado.

          Pilates é indicado para tratar dor lombar?   

Atualmente, em que exercitar-se através do método Pilates está na moda, muitos já ouviram falar dos benefícios e indicações dessa modalidade. E uma das principais indicações tem sido como tratamento das dores, principalmente lombar. 

Mas será que não há contra-indicações? Ou melhor, será que não é preciso modificações, adaptações e até mesmo a exclusão de alguns exercícios do "método original" - desenvolvido durante a Primeira Guerra Mundial - para quem possui alguma disfunção na coluna?

Alguns exercícios que envolvem extensão da coluna com suspensão dos membros inferiores e superiores, como o mergulho do cisne (ou swan dive - foto ao lado) são extremamente prejudiciais para quem tem protusão discal, hérnia discal. Algumas explicações para o "benefício" desse exercício é a ativação dos multífidos, músculos responsáveis pela extensão da coluna e estabilização das articulações (estabilizando principalmente o segmento lombar). Porém a carga imposta na lombar nesse exercício é maior que 4.000 Newton, ou seja, 407,89 Kg. Não me parece uma carga leve, principalmente para quem já tem uma degeneração no disco intervertebral, responsável por amortecer impactos.





Músculos múltifidos no segmento lombar, responsáveis pela estabilização articular. Eles partem de regiões da pelve (quadril) e vértebras para inserirem-se 3 a 5 vértebras acima. 



Degeneração do disco devido a sua herniação. Sempre haverá uma diminuição do amortecimento dos impactos entre essas vértebras.

Outro fator extremamente importante e contra indicado no tratamento das lombalgias (dor lombar) são os alongamentos, muitas vezes realizados ao término das aulas de Pilates. Quando há compressão de um nervo, comum nas hérnias discais, o alongamento da musculatura da região agrava a situação.

Isso acontece porque os nervos passam dentro dos músculos, e não superficialmente a eles. Quando há uma dor de origem neural é porque esse nervo não está recebendo suprimento sanguíneo adequado, tendo sua nutrição alterada. E isso pode ocorrer devido a uma compressão, lesão, ou até mesmo uma lesão muscular que secundariamente acomete o nervo. Ao alongar o músculo, esse nervo também é alongado e diminui seu calibre, dificultando mais ainda sua nutrição. E a má oxigenação dos tecidos libera substâncias que causam dor.


Portanto, alongamentos musculares na região do trajeto do nervo acometido devem ser substituídos por mobilização neural (imagem abaixo), técnica que mobiliza o nervo através de combinações de movimentos específicos, sem sustentação como no alongamento; efetiva no tratamento da disfunção da microcirculação intraneural - já quem um nervo comprimido ou lesionado também apresenta alterações, seja compressão ou lesão, nos seus vasos sanguíneos.


Sendo assim, o método Pilates é extremamente indicado no tratamento das lombalgias e possui inúmeros benefícios contra a recidiva da dor, desde que adaptado de acordo com as individualidades de cada praticante.

          Postura no dia-a-dia   
Adotar posturas básicas nas atividades diárias e profissionais faz total diferença na prevenção de disfunções na coluna ou manutenção de um quadro sem dor após tratamento. Isso sem contar os benefícios para outras articulações, muitas vezes acometidas por osteoartrite (conhecida como artrose), tendinite, bursite.



Na imagem acima, bursa inflamada - bursite - na primeira foto. Na segunda, bursa normal.

Inflamação no tendão do calcâneo – tendinite

A postura correta nada mais é do que manter o corpo alinhado para obter mais eficácia nas aquisições fisiológicas e biomecânicas, minimizando estresses e sobrecargas impostas ao nosso corpo. Para simplificar, imagine o ato de respirar como uma aquisição fisiológica, em que preciso da expansão da caixa torácica (costelas) de forma adequada. Uma postura ruim interfere nesse processo, diminuindo essa expansão por exemplo.
Note como as costelas precisam se mover para inspirarmos e expirarmos. Esse movimento é denominado expansibilidade torácica.
Essa imagem mostra uma escoliose, que é a rotação junto com a inclinação das vértebras. Isso acontece devido a diversas causas (como distrofias neuromusculares), mas pode ser ocasionado pela má postura durante a fase de crescimento, e é irreversível. Porém a fisioterapia pode atenuar essa curvatura e aliviar as dores através de exercícios específicos. 
Nessa imagem, a coluna está inclinada a esquerda, comprimindo órgãos e músculos e diminuindo a capacidade das costelas se expandirem durante a inspiração.


Do ponto de vista biomecânico (mecânica do corpo), podemos citar como exemplo o quanto uma postura inadequada prejudica as articulações, interferindo nos movimentos e levando até mesmo a lesões.

Note a diferença entre as posturas inadequadas, que levam a alterações no nosso corpo, e a postura correta (última foto).
As setas em vermelho simbolizam para onde estamos forçando as articulações do nosso corpo.

Para adotar as seguintes posturas diariamente, é necessário constante foco e atenção até a adaptação do corpo. Com o tempo você irá perceber que não precisa mais se auto corrigir com tanta freqüência. E lembre-se: você não precisa de esforços físicos para manter o corpo em uma posição correta. Não é normal sentir dor para manter-se em um bom posicionamento.


Agora, vamos à prática:
  • A ESCOLHA DO COLCHÃO
  • A ESCOLHA DO TRAVESSEIRO

  • POSTURA PARA DORMIR

            
Para quem dorme de barriga para cima, usar travesseiros embaixo dos joelhos. Ao dormir de lado, use um travesseiro entre as pernas dobradas. Não durma de lado com as pernas estendidas. Dormir de bruços é muito ruim. Mas para quem não consegue uma opção é não usar travesseiro na cabeça e sim embaixo da barriga – isso diminui a nossa curvatura lombar que fica prejudicialmente aumentada nessa posição.
  • POSTURA PARA DEITAR E LEVANTAR DA CAMA
  

Para deitar-se e levantar-se da cama, vire sempre de lado, apóie os braços e enquanto coloca as pernas para fora vá subindo o tronco até ficar sentado. E nunca levante de maneira brusca.
  • POSTURA PARA VESTIR-SE E CALÇAR-SE
  • POSTURA AO SENTAR


            
Você pode fazer um rolinho de toalha, ou usar uma almofada no formato de rolo, para apoiar a região lombar. Cuidado para não deixar a sua coluna em uma posição muito para frente.
  • POSTURA PARA ALGUNS PROFISSIONAIS

  • POSTURA DIANTE DO COMPUTADOR


     
Nessas imagens, uma complementa a outra quanto à postura adequada na frente do computador.
Lembre-se que podemos improvisar o descanso para os pés com uma caixa de sapatos. Mas cuidado para não deixar suas pernas em uma posição inadequada, já que pés muito acima do chão elevam os joelhos também.

Durante a leitura, também devemos manter essa postura. O livro, jornal ou revista devem ser segurados na altura dos olhos. Quando formos ler um livro muito pesado, ou escrever, devemos mantê-los semi verticalizados. Uma dica é adaptar um apoio para livros com uma prancheta de madeira: retire a parte que prende o papel, e com a prancheta na horizontal cole com cola de madeira uma ripa na parte de trás, como se fosse um porta retrato. Mas não deize a prancheta muito elevada. Deve ficar algo em torno de 10 cm da prancheta à mesa, dependendo da sua altura. Ajuste para uma posição que durante a leitura ou escrita a sua cabeça não precise ficar flexionada, para frente. Com uma ripa firme, ou mais de uma (grussura de aproximadamente 6 cm), essa adaptação aguenta livros grandes e pesados.
  • POSTURA AO TELEFONE


Segure o telefone corretamente, e evite apoiá-lo nos ombros.
  • POSTURA AO APANHAR E CARREGAR OBJETOS


Ao pegarmos um objeto acima do nível dos olhos, devemos subir em um banco ESTÁVEL ou uma escada. Sendo assim, evite colocar objetos de uso diário em armários altos.



Lembre-se de carregar o peso junto ao corpo.
Bolsas devem ser trocadas de lado constantemente. Mochilas sempre carregadas da maneira correta.
  • POSTURA NO DIA-A-DIA EM PÉ


Sempre que formos fazer uma atividade por muito tempo em pé, devemos deixar uma perna na frente da outra, já que isso aumenta a nossa base de apoio e diminui o impacto sobre a coluna. Quando possível (isso dependerá da atividade), apoiar o membro que está na frente sobre um algo da altura de uma caixa de sapato. Manter a postura ereta é fundamental. Ao varrer a casa, por exemplo, devemos dobrar os joelhos e não a coluna.
  • POSTURA AO ANDAR
  • POSTURA AO SUBIR E DESCER ESCADAS
  • POSTURA NO ÔNIBUS, METRÔ OU TREM
  • POSTURA NO BALCÃO

LEMBRE-SE: embora essas posturas sejam fundamentais para evitarmos algias (dores) e maiores complicações articulares, é preciso a prática de exercícios específicos com o acompanhamento de um profissional qualificado. Porque para mantermos essas posturas precisamos de força, flexibilidade e da constante ativação de músculos específicos da região abdominal. Portanto, corrija-se agora mesmo quanto a postura e procure um profissional que realizará uma avaliação postural e um programa de tratamento qualificado.

CURIOSIDADE: a carga sobre a coluna é muito maior na posição sentada do que em pé. Temos a impressão de aliviar nossas dores ao sentar porque a falta de força em músculos das pernas e da coluna faz com cansemos na posição em pé. Ao sentarmos aliviamos essa fadiga (cansaço) porque descansamos as pernas e encostamos a coluna. Mas como a carga que incide principalmente na região lombar é maior, precisamos de atenção redobrada na postura ao sentar.

A explicação para essa carga maior é que a ação da gravidade fica comprimindo a coluna contra a cadeira, e o apoio dos glúteos (bumbum) não é tão grande para suportar essa carga. Isso nos faz mudar de posição constantemente, muitas vezes para posturas largadas que ao nosso ver estão "relaxando" o corpo.

Já em pé a carga sobre a lombar diminui porque a gravidade comprime todo o corpo (e não só a cabeça e coluna) no chão. Ao deixar os pés juntos essa carga aumenta porque o apoio é menor. Ao manter um pé na frente do outro, e/ou sobre uma caixa, eu aumento mais ainda a base de apoio e consequentemente diminuo a carga sobre a coluna.

          Did a GOP politician effectively buy Roger Stone’s endorsement against Sen. Elizabeth Warren?   

Roger Stone posted social media endorsements of Massachusetts state Rep. Geoff Diehl’s bid to challenge Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-MA) just days after Diehl rented his email list.

Stone, who contributes to radio host Alex Jones’ Infowars network and will soon host his own Infowars show, has a history of pushing racist, sexist, and conspiratorial rhetoric. Stone has been a longtime adviser to Trump and worked as a paid consultant for Trump’s campaign; he is now reportedly under FBI investigation as part of the agency’s probe into ties between the Trump campaign and Russia.

Stone announced in May through a marketing company that he’s accepting advertisers for his “online presence,” which includes his email list and "social media posts."

Diehl’s campaign rented Stone’s list on June 16 for a fundraising email. A message accompanying the email stated: “We are excited to share with you a special message from one of our sponsoring advertisers, Diehl For Senate. It is also sponsors like them that help fund Stone Cold Truth. Please note that the following message reflects the opinions and representations of our sponsor alone, and not necessarily the opinion of Roger Stone.”

Endorsements for Diehl subsequently appeared on Stone's Facebook and Twitter accounts. Those posts gave no indication whether they were advertisements.

Stone’s Facebook page posted the following on June 23: “Help Us Fire Elizabeth Warren!!!!! Geoff Diehl: The REAL Deal for Massachusetts Help build our grassroots movement to support the real Diehl for Massachusetts. Stand with Geoff Diehl for U.S. Senate. Your donation will send a loud message that it's time to put Massachusetts first.” Much of that language is taken from Diehl’s website. Diel’s Facebook page subsequently touted the Stone post by writing: “The Stone Cold Truth is that we need a U.S. Senator who will put Massachusetts first. Donate today!” 

On June 24, Stone tweeted a link to a Diehl fundraising page and asked followers to "help us fire Elizabeth Warren."

Diehl retweeted Stone and a supporter who celebrated Stone's tweet:

Stone’s backing of Diehl is at odds with his colleagues at Infowars, which has thrown its support to entrepreneur Shiva Ayyadurai, who is competing against Diehl for the Republican nomination. He appeared on Alex Jones’ program on June 7 and June 25. During the June 7 interview, Jones said it was “really exciting” to have Ayyadurai challenging Warren, gave viewers his campaign website address, and asked the Republican how people can support his candidacy. Ayyadurai responded by asking Jones’ listeners to make donations and to volunteer with his campaign.

He appeared on Jones’ June 25 show with guest host Owen Shroyer for roughly 20 minutes; the video description stated: “Everyone show your support for Dr. Shiva Ayyadurai running against Democrat Elitist, Elizabeth Warren in 2018. https://shiva4senate.com/ https://twitter.com/va_shiva.” During the appearance, the candidate said that “what Alex does is probably, sort of the last sort of beacon of truth that’s out there.”

Requests for comment to Diehl were not returned.


          Trump's Mika Brzezinski tweets show that he hates women -- especially members of the press   

This morning, the president of the United States used his favorite media platform for addressing the public to remind us of just how little respect he has for women -- especially women in the press.

Shortly before 9 a.m., Trump posted two revoltingly sexist tweets attacking MSNBC’s Morning Joe co-host Mika Brzezinski for her appearance and intellect. The leader of the free world called the morning show anchor “low I.Q. Crazy Mika” and alleged that she had attempted to visit him at his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida on New Year’s Eve and was “bleeding badly from a face-lift” at the time.

This isn’t the first time Trump’s attacked women media figures -- it’s not even close -- and it’s also not the first time he’s done it on Twitter. In recent years, he has tweeted that:

He and his campaign targeted reporter Michelle Fields (formerly of Breitbart.com and HuffPost) after then-campaign manager Corey Lewandowski was shown on camera manhandling her at a campaign event.

Trump repeatedly lashed out at Megyn Kelly during the campaign season offline as well, at one point saying in an interview that she had “blood coming out of her wherever.” He also attacked Tur at rallies and in interviews, calling her “Little Katy, third-rate journalist” and “not a very good reporter” and singling her out at press events.

After People’s Natasha Stoynoff reported that Trump had sexually assaulted her in 2005, Trump suggested at a campaign rally that the report was false because Stoynoff wasn’t attractive, saying, "You take a look. Look at her. Look at her words. You tell me what you think. I don't think so.”

Earlier this week, Trump was openly reducing another professional reporter to her body, pausing an official diplomatic call in the Oval Office to comment on Irish reporter Caitriona Perry’s smile.

This post has been updated to reflect that Michelle Fields no longer works at HuffPost.

          Como a falta de sono afeta seu cérebro

Cientistas do Canadá lançaram o que promete ser o maior estudo do mundo sobre os efeitos da falta de sono no cérebro.

Publicado na BBC Brasil

Eles esperam que pessoas de todo o mundo se registrem pela internet para fazer testes cognitivos e participar do experimento.

Jogos de computador testarão habilidades como raciocínio, compreensão da linguagem e tomada de decisões.

O estudo é coordenado pelo neurocientista britânico Adrian Owen, do Instituto de Cérebro e Mente da Universidade Western, no Canadá.

“Sabemos como nos sentimos após uma noite mal dormida, mas conhecemos muito pouco sobre os efeitos da falta de sono no cérebro. Queremos ver como isso afeta a cognição, a memória e a habilidade de concentração”, diz ele.

A equipe irá analisar o desempenho dos participantes nos testes cognitivos e avaliar os diferentes resultados a partir das horas dormidas.

A necessidade diária de sono varia de pessoa para pessoa, mas se o estudo conseguir reunir um número significativo de voluntários, permitirá aos cientistas determinar um número médio de horas necessárias para a otimização da função cerebral.

O repórter da BBC Fergus Walsh e mais quatro voluntários passaram a noite na Universidade Western, onde testaram os jogos e puderam verificar como a falta de sono afeta o desempenho cognitivo.

Voluntários

Hooman Ganjavi, 42 anos, psiquiatra, acostumado a fazer plantões noturnos: “Durmo apenas de quatro a cinco horas por noite. Sei que a falta de sono aumenta o risco de doenças cardíacas e de derrame, mas, como muitos médicos, não aplico essas regras ao meu dia a dia”.

Sylvie Salewski, 31 anos, mãe de duas meninas pequenas: “Para mim uma boa noite de sono é quando elas me acordam duas ou três vezes; não consigo me lembrar do que é dormir uma noite toda sem ser incomodada; normalmente me sinto meio desnorteada no dia seguinte”.

Evan Agnew, 75 anos, vigia aposentado: “Nunca dormi mais de oito horas de sono por noite, e na minha idade não acho que preciso de mais de quatro horas. Acabo complementando meu sono durante o dia com um ou dois cochilos”.

Cecilia Kramar, 31 anos, neurocientista que faz pesquisas cognitivas com camundongos noturnos, o que significa passar noites em claro no laboratório: “Quando não durmo muito, não consigo fazer nada complicado no dia seguinte, como ler uma revista científica, porque meu cérebro não funciona bem”.

_96396318_spatialplanning

Testes

Os testes podem ser jogados em qualquer computador, tablet ou smartphone.

Double Trouble: Você deve clicar na palavra debaixo que corresponde à cor na qual a palavra acima está escrita. Exemplo: se a palavra na linha superior é “azul”, mas está em vermelho, você deve clicar na palavra da linha inferior que também está em vermelho, mesmo se estiver escrito “azul”.

Odd One Out: Começa simples, mas vai se tornando cada vez mais complexo. Você tem de achar o objeto que não pertence ao grupo.

Grammatical reasoning: A afirmação sobre o diagrama é verdadeira ou falsa? Parece fácil, até você começar a lidar com negações.

Spatial planning: O jogo testa a habilidade de planejar com antecedência – como todos os jogos, mede as competências cognitivas que usamos repetidamente durante todo o dia.

Desempenho

“Depois de ficarmos acordados até as 4h, podemos dormir por 4h. Quando refizemos os testes cognitivos durante a manhã, Evan, Cecilia e eu tivemos um desempenho muito pior do que na noite anterior”, conta o repórter da BBC.

Hooman – que está acostumado a ficar de plantão – não registrou uma variação negativa em sua pontuação, enquanto que a de Sylvie chegou, inclusive, a melhorar.

“Embora fique um pouco desnorteada durante a manhã, talvez tenha me acostumado a funcionar com pouco sono. Tenho de estar funcionando assim que meus filhos acordam, então é normal para mim”, disse Sylvie.

Sempre soube que não funciono direito quando não durmo bem, então para mim não foi surpresa que minha pontuação tenha caído dramaticamente durante a manhã.

No caso de Walsh, da BBC, para descobrir o que estava acontecendo com seu cérebro, ele repetiu os testes cognitivos dentro de uma máquina de tomografia computadorizada.

“Meu cérebro foi examinado duas vezes – depois de uma noite de sono normal e logo depois de uma noite mal dormida. A tomografia é capaz de detectar o fluxo de sangue no meu cérebro – as áreas que estão trabalhando mais intensamente são identificadas pelas manchas laranjas”, explica.

A comparação entre as duas imagens não deixou dúvidas: por causa da falta de sono, o cérebro do jornalista apresentou um nível de atividade bem baixa.

“Há muito menos atividade nos lobos frontal e parietais – áreas que sabemos serem cruciais para a tomada de decisões, a solução de problemas e a memória”, explica Owen, o coordenador do estudo.

Todos nós sabemos que é perigoso dirigir quando estamos cansados, porque nosso tempo de reação diminui e podemos dormir ao volante.

Mas os efeitos da falta de sono no nosso cotidiano são bem menos compreendidos.

“Pode ser que a falta de sono esteja tendo efeitos muito profundos na tomada de decisão e talvez a gente devesse evitar tomar decisões importantes como comprar uma casa ou mesmo se casar depois de uma noite mal dormida”, avalia Owen.

Resultado

Passamos praticamente um terço das nossas vidas dormindo. Ou seja, o sono é tão vital para a nossa saúde quanto os alimentos que ingerimos e o ar que respiramos.

Mas nossa cultura de estarmos ligados durante 24 horas por dia está reduzindo nossas horas de sono.

No mês passado, um estudo na revista científica Nature Reviews Neuroscience apontou que havia “uma compreensão notavelmente pequena” das consequências da falta de sono crônica para o cérebro.

A pesquisa dizia que mais estudos são necessários face ao que chamou de “declínio considerável da duração de sono em todas as nações industrializadas”.

Ao esquecer detalhes que não são importantes, o seu cérebro está ajudando você a tomar as decisões certas

Publicado na Época Negócios

Sabe aquelas pessoas que vivem se gabando de ter uma memória perfeita? Nunca esquecem nenhum nome, a cidade que visitaram há 10 anos, lembram todos os detalhes dos filmes. De acordo com cientistas, você deveria deixar de invejar essa gente, pois esquecer é uma coisa normal e, veja só, ainda te torna mais inteligente.

Em uma pesquisa publicada recentemente na Neuron, e divulgada pela Time, o time de cientistas liderado por Paul Frankland e Blake Richards, da Universidade de Toronto, concluiu que o principal objetivo da memória não é transmitir a informação de forma mais precisa ao longo do tempo. E, sim, otimizar o poder de decisão inteligente ao se apegar ao que é realmente importante e “esquecendo” o que é irrelevante.

“É importante que o cérebro esqueça detalhes irrelevantes e, em vez disso, se concentre em tudo o que vai ajudar a tomar decisões práticas no mundo real”, afirma Blake Richards, que integra o programa Learning in Machine and Brains (Aprendizado em Máquinas e Cérebros).

Após estudar e cruzar informações sobre memória, perda de memória e atividade cerebral em seres humanos e animais, os pesquisadores perceberam que o cérebro cria novas conexões que se sobrepõem às mais antigas. Essa observação foi feita nos estudos de Frankland com cobaias, provando que as células do cérebro são formadas no hipocampo – região associada com o aprendizado de novas coisas. As conexões que surgem a partir dos conhecimentos substituem as memórias antigas e tornam seu acesso mais difícil.

Essa troca constante de memórias antigas por novas pode trazer verdadeiros benefícios evolucionários, dizem os pesquisadores. Por exemplo: nos permite adaptar a novas situações, deixando de lado as informações desatualizada e potencialmente enganosas.

“Se você está tentando viver sua vida e seu cérebro insiste em relembrar memórias conflitantes, isso torna mais difícil que você tome uma decisão acertada”, diz Richards.

Nossos cérebros também nos ajudam a esquecer fatos específicos, mas retêm uma ideia geral do que aconteceu. Isso, dizem os pesquisadores, nos dá a habilidade de generalizar experiências anteriores e aplicar o conhecimento em situações atuais.

Os cientistas afirmam que é normal admirar aquela pessoa que sempre vence nos jogos de memória, como Master, Perfil ou Imagem e Ação. ‘Mas o fato é que o processo da evolução formou nossa memória não para ganhar jogos de trivia, mas para tomar decisões inteligentes”, diz Richards. “E quando você olha para o que é necessário a fim de tomar decisões inteligentes, então podemos argumentar que é saudável esquecer algumas coisas”.

O que isso significa para quem vive esquecendo nomes e detalhes que acabou de ler, pessoas que encontrou ontem ou até mesmo onde deixou as chaves de casa? Para Richards, essas pessoas deveriam se exigir menos, dentro do limite do razoável.

“Ninguém quer esquecer tudo o que aprendeu, e se você anda esquecendo mais do que o normal, aí sim tem uma razão para se preocupar”, diz o pesquisador. “Mas se você costuma esquecer um ou outro detalhe, é provavelmente um sinal de que o seu sistema de memória é perfeitamente saudável e está fazendo exatamente o que deveria”.

Considerando-se a atual sociedade em que vivemos, em que há computadores por todo lado e a possibilidade de pesquisar tudo no Google, Richards afirma que nossos cérebros não precisam mais guardar uma quantidade enorme de informações, como número de telefone e quem foi o primeiro homem a pisar na Lua. “Ao invés de guardar essas informações irrelevantes, nossos cérebros estão liberados para arquivar memórias que realmente fazem diferença para nossas vidas”, diz.

O pesquisador recomenda ainda uma “limpeza” regular no sistema de memória – facilmente resolvido com idas frequentes à academia ou se exercitando em casa e nos parques.

“Nós sabemos que a atividade física aumenta o número de neurônios no hipocampo”, diz. Sim, isso talvez faça com que algumas memórias se percam, diz, “mas são exatamente aqueles detalhes da sua vida que não têm importância, e que talvez estejam te impedindo de tomar boas decisões”.

IBM can do crap, they demonstrated a 5nm manufacture protype but they have nowhere near a production ready commercial 5nm process they don't even have a commercial FAB at all anymore. They might license parts of the process to GF and that's it. But until GF gets to actually implement it and run at production level it is going to be at least till 2021-2. Besides the current IBM TrueNorth prototype performs absolutely abysmal on state of the art DNN if you actually start investigating its usage. What they are right though is ASIC is the future especially for the cloud and HPC. And you don't need to be on a bleeding edge for getting a good ROI you can go to an old/mature/cheap process node and still gain. Read this interesting paper to get an idea what I am talking about "Moonwalk: NRE Optimization in ASIC Clouds"

Author Interview


Q. Describe your book in ten words or less.

A. An unlikely savior of the universe -- tragedy, comedy, and satire.


Q. What draws you to this genre.

A. I enjoy reading and writing literary fiction and within most genres. I'm not a big fan of pure escapist novels. I tend to look for the author's hidden metaphors -- meaning behind the superficial and that seems to detract from my enjoyment. So, when I write, my goal is to produce something that will be reflected upon after the last paragraph has been read. I also enjoy reading speculative fiction -- the what if? There are several what ifs in Rarity from the Hollow, but the one that was most fun to write was its political parody. What if some compelling force united extreme capitalism and socialism by a common cause --- saving the universe? While much of the focus of my story was on the prevention of child maltreatment, there are other analogies -- i.e. global warming. Rarity from the Hollow was the first, perhaps the only, science fiction adventure to specifically predict the rise of Donald Trump to political power -- parody with no political advocacy one side or any other. Readers find out how Lacy Dawn, the protagonist, convinced Mr. Rump (Bernie Sanders) to help talk Mr. Prump (Donald Trump) into saving the universe. The allegory includes pressing issues that are being debated today, including illegal immigration and the refuge crisis, an issue that several European commentators have compared to cockroach infestation; extreme capitalism / consumerism vs. domestic spending for social supports; sexual harassment…. Mr. Prump in my story was a projection of Donald Trump based on the TV show, The Apprentice. The counterpart, Mr. Rump, was based on my understanding of positions held by Bernie Sanders as I wrote the story. Part of the negotiations in the story occur in the only high rise on planet Shptiludrp (Shop Until You Drop), a giant shopping mall and the center of economic governance, now more easily identifiable as Trump Tower. The allegory was not addressed by ARC reviewers of the novel because so few people worldwide considered Donald Trump to be a serious political contender until the primary elections in the U.S. The political allegory in the novel is obvious now that Donald Trump has become a household name. In summary, I am drawn to literary speculative fiction because it is so much fun to write.


Q. Where do you get information or ideas for your book?

A. Much of Rarity from the Hollow is more real than not, and based upon over forty years of my experiences working as a children's advocate. I use Google for research, for example, on updated research on prevalence rates or correlates of child abuse. One interesting element of the story pertains to the ET assistance that helped cure Lacy Dawn's parents -- she begins the story as an eleven year old protagonist, a victim of maltreatment. Her father is a war damaged Vet suffering from PTSD, night terrors, and anger outbursts. Several book reviewers have complimented by imagination when writing the medical intervention element of the story. In reality, humans are living in a very exciting time when computerized diagnosis and intervention of mental health concerns is an emerging science. The fantastical means employed by the alien in my story to treat the parents were based on today’s medical reality. I’ve already mentioned that in the beginning of Rarity from the Hollow, Dwayne, the abusive father was a war damaged Vet experiencing anger outbursts and night terrors. The mother was a downtrodden victim of domestic violence who had lost hope of ever getting her G.E.D. or driver's license, or of protecting her daughter. Diagnosis and treatment of these concerns affecting the parents, as representative of many similarly situated, was based on emerging technologies presented at the 2015 World Medical Innovation Forum: https://worldmedicalinnovation.org/ . Yes, in real life, like in my story, patients have been hooked up to computer technology for medial diagnosis and treatment. Additional exciting research was presented at that Forum and may one day may revolutionize psychiatric treatment. Most relevant to my story were: (1) smart brain prosthetics, wireless devises being tested for potential to relieve depression, PTSD, Bipolar Disorder…neural engineering to manipulate brain signals; (2) sophisticated imaging systems that are minimally invasive to brain circuitry for diagnosis (3) and, healing the brain with neuromodulation and electroceuticals to treat depression and schizophrenia. http://hitconsultant.net/2015/04/30/tech-revolutionize-neurological-psychiatric-care/


Q. How do you select the names of your characters?

A. Typically, I pick names that fit a culture for stories. While I love fantasy, I've found long and unusual first names for characters annoying, thereby sometimes leading to head hopping as I've read the stories. I try to avoid this practice. For example, I recently read a short story involving sisters with unusual but very similar first names. I kept getting the characters mixed up, complicated by their similar voices. The subculture for Rarity from the Hollow is Appalachian, a place where the use of first and middle names is common when addressing the individual, such as Billy Bob, or Robert Thomas. Lacy Dawn was addressed by her first and middle name in the story as a show of love and respect, while the other characters were addressed by their first names only as a sign that their parents did not hold their existences in high regard. As a back story, when pregnant, Lacy Dawn's mother realized that she would not be able to give her daughter beautiful things in life, so she decided to give her a very beautiful name at birth.  


Q. List your top 5 favorite authors or books.

A. Gosh, this is an impossible to answer question. I'm a mood reader, so my favorite books at one time may be entirely different than at another time. Right now: Vonnegut’s anger in Breakfast of Champions helped me stay strong as a children’s advocate and as a writer, and how to experiment with my writing style. Watership Down by R. Adams was such a sweet adventure that some of this element just is a necessary ingredient of even the scariest or saddest story. Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy by Douglas Adams is probably on a lot of lists of favorite books. If I feel nostalgic, like now, Another Roadside Attraction by Tom Robbins pushed me into the wilder side of writing regardless of censorship with views on religion and other topics. Last, The Color Purple by Alice Walker remains a role model for using colloquialism to reach mainstream readers. 


Q. What book/s are you reading at present?

A. I'm going to have to pass on this question. I'm reading a second novel by an unknown author and am so disappointed that I don't want to name it. I respected her debut novel and expected this one to be even better. It isn't. When this one was posted on a blog for 99¢ I grabbed a Kindle version. Don't misunderstand. I don't subscribe to the Goodreads rating system based on whether I "liked" a novel or not. If I'm considering writing a review of a novel I would never let my personal taste control such an important task -- my likes are irrelevant to whether a book is great or awful -- so are my comfort zones -- irrelevant. So far, this book has holes in the plot, is so mainstream that it could have been written by a computer program, and was poorly edited. There seems to be no message, but I'm hopeful that the author some how pulls it all together in the last third of the novel. I don't need to like a novel to give it a good rating, but I do have to respect it. Did the story fulfill its mission? It this novel does improve you may see my review on Amazon or Goodreads and you will get my answer to your question if you notice. If the novel does not improve, I may just skip writing a review. The impact of reviews can be so powerful that I wouldn't want to influence the behavior of an author who, based on the debut, has potential but released on perhaps prematurely. If this author was well known, making lots of money, I would have no problem blasting this piece of crap that I'm reading.


Q. What's next for you? What are you working on now?

A. I've been stuck in self-promotion mode for so long that I've neglected the next Lacy Dawn Adventure -- Ivy. I've submitted a couple of short stories to magazines recently but no bites. It seems to me that many magazines either stick very close to the Young Adult genre or are so extreme that my writing seems to have a hard time fitting into content. I don't want to change what I write just to achieve publication, so I'm trying to explore other alternatives. I'm working on a satirical essay, and a couple of poems. One of my poems won first place in an international competition last year, so I have a little name recognition because of that. Ivy, full of metaphors and allegory, is the story of an alien invasion of Earth based in an almost forgotten town. I live in West Virginia, the U.S. state with the highest rate of heroin overdose deaths in the nation. My familiarity with what is happening to my neighbors because of addiction prompted me to ask: how far will a child go to save a parent from addiction? I hope to achieve a similar finding when answering this serious question as I did with Rarity from the Hollow: “…a hillbilly version of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy, only instead of the earth being destroyed to make way for a hyperspace bypass, Lacy Dawn must…The author has managed to do what I would have thought impossible; taken serious subjects like poverty, ignorance, abuse, and written about them with tongue-in-cheek humor without trivializing them…Eggleton sucks you into the Hollow, dunks you in the creek, rolls you in the mud, and splays you in the sun to dry off. Tucked between the folds of humor are some profound observations on human nature and modern society that you have to read to appreciate…it’s a funny book that most sci-fi fans will thoroughly enjoy.” http://awesomeindies.net/ai-approved-review-of-rarity-from-the-holly-by-robert-eggleton/ I'll let you know when it is released.


Q.  What advice do you have for writers?

A. I don’t feel competent to give advice to other writers, but I will share a little common sense based on my observations of this marketplace. Don’t expect to be discovered overnight like you were Elvis singing on the front stoop of an apartment located in a low-income neighborhood. Before you publish, make sure that your work as been professionally edited, or as close to it as your finances will allow – not by a friend or anybody with whom you have a personal relationship. If published, to the extent possible, prevent generic one line reviews from being posted on Amazon – they always look like they were written by your friends and detract from other reviews that appear more legitimate. Commit to the long haul by keeping in mind that the majority of those entering the world of books stay there briefly and then drop out never to be heard from again. And, last, never buy a book review and don’t invest more than you can afford in anything. I’ve heard of aspiring authors placing themselves and their families at financial risk by becoming over-committed to a book that they had written. Hard work pays off, but working smart has better outcomes.   


Thank You So Much Robert Eggleton For Your Time & Interview.



R. Thank you for the opportunity to tell your readers a little about myself and my debut novel, Rarity from the Hollow.

          Our LIMU Experience: Erica & Tyler Phillips, Entrepreneurs   

LIMUNATION_2017_Story_Slider_EricatylerPhillips

We are Erica and Tyler Philips, and this is our LIMU Experience.

 
Tyler and I aren’t anything special. We were just your typical young, married couple living paycheck to paycheck. We aren’t the type of people you see in magazines, leading a crusade to change the world, or the type of people who go on lavish vacations while driving fancy cars. Honestly, you wouldn’t really imagine us doing anything besides hanging a little vinyl siding and teaching math. We were okay, but we were young, limited and stuck.
 
Tyler worked with his dad at their family vinyl siding business and tried to save every penny he made. He liked working with his dad, but knew there had to be a better way to make money than breaking his back. His dad would often tell him, “The only way you’ll get a raise is if you get a taller ladder.”
 
I loved my students and I loved teaching, but it seemed like I was always stretched too thin. Not enough time, money, freedom or support. I was frustrated because I was in a job with no room for growth. It didn’t matter how hard I worked, how early I arrived, how late I stayed or how well my students performed. I was still paid the same as everyone else around me despite my efforts. I felt discouraged and tired of getting paid what someone else thought I was worth.
 
We felt trapped, like mice on a wheel. After earning two college degrees and gaining respectable jobs, we woke up one morning and realized we had less than $500 in savings. So, we played the never-ending cycle of credit as we placed our vacation on a credit card and crossed our fingers that we would have it paid off by Christmas. We didn’t realize we had other options.
 
Our LIMU Experience began in 2009 after nine months of avoiding and hiding from our very persistent friends, neighbors and co-workers. But after hearing what LIMU had done for their family through the whole LIMU Experience , we were in! We finally had some hope and with the success they were having, we thought, “Why not us?” Our first party had a nice turnout, with 15 of our closest friends, and all 15 shot us down.
 
But instead of going to bed that night discouraged, we looked at each other and said, “Now it’s time to prove them wrong.” Even without our closest friends, we still hit 5K in 60 days! Our fourth month in, we made more working part time with LIMU than Tyler did full time in construction. Now, we really believed. Within six months, we were qualified for a black BMW and had four others on our team that qualified as well!
 
That December, we attended our first LIMU LIVE! event, and that changed our business forever. We had two grand prize winners on our team at that first event, and there’s nothing better than seeing people you love and care about winning big! LIMU LIVE! is a game changer and I’m proud to say we’ve never missed an event since. The LIMU LIVE! events sparked something in us and in 90 days, we went from 20K to 100K!
 
When we hit 100K, Tyler retired from the construction industry on his 27th birthday. That following month, I was named Lincoln Parish Middle School Teacher of the Year and was awarded a plaque. Here I was, driving to my teaching job in a car paid for by a part-time LIMU opportunity that paid more than my regular teaching job. I was even awarded a $10,000 bonus check by LIMU! So, after a few months of prayer and contemplation, I decided to turn my part-time LIMU opportunity into my full-time career. Thanks to LIMU, we were retired from teaching and construction before we turned 30!
 
We’ve experienced lots of ups and downs, peaks and valleys. We had people on our team that flat out gave up on themselves. The hardest reality we had to face was pouring all of our time, energy and soul into people who ultimately gave up on themselves too soon. But there is nothing better than seeing those that don’t give up win big! It is such a joy to be able to help people achieve their goals and dreams through the LIMU Experience!
 
Now, because of the LIMU Experience, we’ve been featured in Success from Home Magazine and drive a fancy BMW convertible! We’ve been on several once-in-a-lifetime vacations and have checked many things off our bucket list! We get to team up with incredible people daily as we pursue “unfinished business” and help others be more.

Thanks to LIMU, we both get to be stay-at-home parents while working hard at something that matters.

Last year we welcomed our daughter into this world on November 3. With all the things to think about while raising a baby, do you know the one thing we don’t have to worry about? Money! More importantly, guess what else we don’t have to worry about? Time! You can always make more money, but you can’t make more time.
 
Recently, one of the most influential men in my life left this world to spend eternity in heaven. He is very missed, but I’m so thankful for the time I was able to spend with him during his last few weeks on Earth. We visited every single day, shared our love and his youngest great-granddaughter were able to see him regularly.
 
Not a day goes by that we don’t drink the LIMU products! I lost 30 pounds in a four-month period with the LIMU LEAN challenge. Looking back on our last seven years, I wouldn’t change a bit of our journey for anything. I am who I am today because of LIMU. LIMU gave us the opportunity to get out of our comfort zone, and for that we are so grateful to Gary Raser, our leaders, our team and all of LIMU Nation.
 
We are Tyler and Erica Phillips, and we are LIMU!

          4 Hidden Dangers of Pork   
Pork is the most commonly consumed meat in the world, but may also be one of the most dangerous.

Among foods that inspire a cult-like following, pork often leads the pack, as evidenced by the 65% of Americans eager to name bacon the country’s national food.

Unfortunately, that popularity comes at a cost. Along with being the most commonly consumed meat in the world, pork may also be one of the most dangerous, carrying some important and under-discussed risks that any consumer should be aware of (1).

1. Hepatitis E

Thanks to the revival of nose-to-tail eating, offal has redeemed itself among health enthusiasts, especially liver, which is prized for its vitamin A content and massive mineral lineup.

But when it comes to pork, liver might be risky business.

In developed nations, pork liver is the top food-based transmitter of hepatitis E, a virus that infects 20 million people each year and can lead to acute illness (fever, fatigue, jaundice, vomiting, joint pain and stomach pain), enlarged liver and sometimes liver failure and death (23).

Most hepatitis E cases are stealthily symptom-free, but pregnant women can experience violent reactions to the virus, including fulminant hepatitis (rapid-onset liver failure) and a high risk of both maternal and fetal mortality (4). In fact, mothers who get infected during their third trimester face a death rate of up to 25% (5).

In rare cases, hepatitis E infection can lead to myocarditis (an inflammatory heart disease), acute pancreatitis (painful inflammation of the pancreas), neurological problems (including Guillain-Barré syndrome and neuralgic amyotrophy), blood disorders and musculoskeletal problems, such as elevated creatine phosphokinase, indicating muscle damage, and multi-joint pain (in the form of polyarthralgia) (678).

People with compromised immune systems, including organ transplant recipients on immunosuppressive therapy and people with HIV, are more likely to suffer from these severe hepatitis E complications (9).

So, just how alarming are pork’s contamination stats? In America, about 1 out of every 10 store-bought pig livers tests positive for hepatitis E, which is slightly higher than the 1 in 15 rate in the Netherlands and 1 in 20 rate in the Czech Republic (1011). One study in Germany found that about 1 in 5 pork sausages were contaminated (12).

France’s traditional figatellu, a pig liver sausage that’s often consumed raw, is a confirmed hepatitis E carrier (13). In fact, in regions of France where raw or rare pork is a common delicacy, over half the local population shows evidence of hepatitis E infection (14).

Japan, too, is facing rising hepatitis E concerns as pork gains popularity (15). And in the UK? Hepatitis E shows up in pork sausages, in pork liver and at pork slaughterhouses, indicating the potential for widespread exposure among pork consumers (16).

It might be tempting to blame the hepatitis E epidemic on commercial farming practices, but in the case of the pig, wilder doesn’t mean safer. Hunted boars, too, are frequent hepatitis E carriers, capable of passing on the virus to game-eating humans (1718).

Apart from total pork abstinence, the best way to slash hepatitis E risk is in the kitchen. This stubborn virus can survive the temperatures of rare-cooked meat, making high heat the best weapon against infection (19). For virus deactivation, cooking pork products for at least 20 minutes to an internal temperature of 71°C (160°F) seems to do the trick (20).

However, fat can protect hepatitis viruses from heat destruction, so fattier cuts of pork might need extra time or toastier temperatures (21).

Summary: Pork products, particularly liver, frequently carry hepatitis E, which can cause severe complications and even death in vulnerable populations. Thorough cooking is necessary to deactivate the virus.

2. Multiple Sclerosis

One of the most surprising risks associated with pork — one that’s received remarkably little airtime — is multiple sclerosis (MS), a devastating autoimmune condition involving the central nervous system.

The robust link between pork and MS has been known at least since the 1980s, when researchers analyzed the relationship between per capita pork consumption and MS across dozens of countries (22).

While pork-averse nations like Israel and India were nearly spared from MS’s degenerative grips, more liberal consumers, such as West Germany and Denmark, faced sky-high rates.

In fact, when all countries were considered, pork intake and MS showed a whopping correlation of 0.87 (p<0.001), which is much higher and more significant than the relationship between MS and fat intake (0.63, p<0.01), MS and total meat intake (0.61, p<0.01) and MS and beef consumption (no significant relationship).

For perspective, a similar study of diabetes and per capita sugar intake found a correlation of just under 0.60 (p<0.001) when analyzing 165 countries (23).

As with all epidemiological findings, the correlation between pork consumption and MS can’t prove that one causes the other (or even that, within MS-stricken countries, the most enthusiastic pork consumers were the most diseased). But as it turns out, the evidence vault goes much deeper.

Earlier, a study of inhabitants of the Orkney and Shetland Islands of Scotland, a region teeming with unusual delicacies, including seabird eggs, raw milk and undercooked meat, found only one dietary association with MS — consumption of “potted head,” a dish made from boiled pig’s brain (24).

Among Shetland residents, a significantly higher proportion of MS patients had consumed potted head in their youth, compared to healthy, age and sex-matched controls (25).

This is particularly relevant because — per other research — MS that strikes in adulthood might stem from environmental exposures during adolescence (26).

The potential for pig brain to trigger nerve-related autoimmunity isn’t just an observational hunch, either. Between 2007 and 2009, a cluster of 24 pork plant workers mysteriously fell ill with progressive inflammatory neuropathy, which is characterized by MS-like symptoms such as fatigue, numbness, tingling and pain (2728).

The source of the outbreak? So-called “pig brain mist” — tiny particles of brain tissue blasted into the air during carcass processing (29).

When workers inhaled these tissue particles, their immune systems, per standard protocol, formed antibodies against the foreign porcine antigens.

But those antigens happened to bear an uncanny resemblance to certain neural proteins in humans. And the result was a biological calamity: confused about who to fight, the workers’ immune systems launched a guns-blazing attack on their own nerve tissue (3031).

Although the resulting autoimmunity wasn’t identical to multiple sclerosis, that same process of molecular mimicry, where foreign antigens and self-antigens are similar enough to trigger an autoimmune response, has been implicated in the pathogenesis of MS (3233).

Of course, unlike pig brain mist, hot dogs and ham aren’t literally inhaled (teenage boys notwithstanding). Could pork still transmit problematic substances through ingestion?

The answer is a speculative yes. For one, certain bacteria, particularly Acinetobacter, are involved in molecular mimicry with myelin, the nerve-sheathing substance that becomes damaged in MS (3435).

Although the role of pigs as Acinetobacter carriers hasn’t been exhaustively studied, the bacteria has been found in pig feces, on pig farms and in bacon, pork salami and ham, where it serves as a spoilage organism (36373839). If pork acts as a vehicle for Acinetobacter transmission (or in any way increases the risk of human infection), a link with MS would make sense.

Two, pigs may be silent and under-studied carriers of prions, misfolded proteins that drive neurodegenerative disorders like Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease (the human version of mad cow) and Kuru (found among cannibal societies) (40).

Some researchers suggest MS itself could be a prion disease, one that targets oligodendrocytes, the cells that produce myelin (41). And since prions — and their associated diseases— are transmitted by consuming infected nerve tissue, it’s possible that prion-harboring pork products could be one link in the MS chain (42).

Summary: A causative role of pork in MS is far from a closed case, but the unusually strong epidemiological patterns, biological plausibility and documented experiences make further research imperative.

3. Liver Cancer and Cirrhosis

Liver problems tend to trail closely on the heels of some predictable risk factors, namely hepatitis B and C infection, exposure to aflatoxin (a carcinogen produced by mold) and excessive alcohol intake (434445).

But buried in the scientific literature is another potential scourge of liver health — pork.

For decades, pork consumption has faithfully echoed liver cancer and cirrhosis rates around the world. In multi-country analyses, the correlation between pork and cirrhosis mortality clocked in at 0.40 (p<0.05) using 1965 data, 0.89 (p<0.01) using mid-1970s data, 0.68 (p=0.003) using 1996 data and 0.83 (p=0.000) using 2003 data (4647).

In those same analyses, among the 10 Canadian provinces, pork bore a correlation of 0.60 (p<0.01) with death from liver cirrhosis, while alcohol, perhaps due to an overall low intake, showed no significant link.

And in statistical models incorporating known perils for the liver (alcohol consumption, hepatitis B infection and hepatitis C infection), pork remained independently associated with liver disease, suggesting the association isn’t just due to pork piggybacking, as the case may be, on a different causative agent (48).

Beef, by contrast, remained liver-neutral or protective in these studies.

Liver cancer, too, tends to follow in the hoof steps of the pig. A 1985 analysis showed that pork intake correlated with hepatocellular carcinoma deaths as strongly as alcohol did (0.40, p<0.05 for both) (49). (Considering liver cirrhosis is often a prelude to cancer, this connection shouldn’t be surprising (50).)

So, what’s behind these eerie associations?

At first glance, the most likely explanations don’t pan out. Although pork-transmitted hepatitis E can lead to liver cirrhosis, this happens almost exclusively in immunosuppressed people, a subset of the population that’s too small to account for the global correlation (51).

Relative to other meat, pork tends to be high in omega-6 fatty acids, including linoleic acid and arachidonic acid, which may play a role in liver disease (525354). But vegetable oils, whose polyunsaturated fatty acid content blows pork out of the water, don’t dance the same liver disease tango that pork does, calling into question whether fat is really to blame (5556).

Heterocyclic amines, a class of carcinogens formed by cooking meat (including pork) at high temperatures, contribute to liver cancer in a variety of animals (57). But these compounds are also readily formed in beef, according to the same studies that indicated pork has no positive relationship with liver disease (5859).

With all that in mind, it’d be easy to dismiss the pork-liver disease link as an epidemiological fluke. However, some plausible mechanisms do exist.

The most likely contender involves nitrosamines, which are carcinogenic compounds created when nitrites and nitrates react with certain amines (from protein), particularly in high heat (60). These compounds have been linked to damage and cancer in a variety of organs, including the liver (61).

One of the biggest dietary sources of nitrosamines is processed pork, which, along with being a frequent visitor to the frying pan, typically contains nitrites and nitrates as curing agents. (Vegetables are also rich in naturally occurring nitrates, but their antioxidant content and dearth of protein help thwart the process of N-nitrosation, preventing them from becoming cancer-causing agents (62).)

Significant levels of nitrosamines have been found in pork liver pâté, bacon, sausage, ham and other cured meats (636465). The fatty portion of pork products, in particular, tends to accumulate much higher levels of nitrosamines than the lean bits, making bacon a particularly abundant source (66).

The presence of fat can also turn vitamin C into a nitrosamine promoter instead of a nitrosamine inhibitor, so pairing pork with veggies might not confer much protection (67).

Although much of the nitrosamine-liver cancer research has focused on rodents, where certain nitrosamines produce liver injury with remarkable ease, the effect appears in humans as well (6869). In fact, some researchers suggest humans may be even more sensitive to nitrosamines than mice and rats (70).

In Thailand, for instance, nitrosamines have been strongly linked to liver cancer in areas where other risk factors are low (71). A 2010 analysis of the NIH-AARP cohort found red meat (including pork), processed meat (including processed pork), nitrates and nitrites to be positively associated with chronic liver disease. Rubber workers, occupationally exposed to nitrosamines, have faced extremely high rates of non-alcohol-related liver disease and cancer (72).

Do nitrosamines prove a chain of causation between pork, liver-harming compounds and liver disease? The evidence is currently too patchy to make that claim, but the risk is plausible enough to justify limiting nitrosamine-containing (or nitrosamine-producing) pork products, including bacon, ham, hot dogs and sausages made with sodium nitrite or potassium nitrate.

Summary: Strong epidemiological links exist between pork consumption and liver disease. If these links reflect cause and effect, one culprit might be N-nitroso compounds, which are found abundantly in processed pork products cooked at high temperatures.

4. Yersinia

For years, pork’s precautionary motto was “well-done or bust,” a consequence of fears about trichinosis, a type of roundworm infection that ravaged pork consumers throughout much of the 20th century (73).

Thanks to changes in feeding practices, farm hygiene and quality control, pig-borne trichinosis has dropped off the radar, inviting pink pork back onto the menu.

But pork’s relaxed heat rules may have opened the doors for a different type of infection — yersiniosis, which is caused by Yersinia bacteria. In the US alone, Yersiniacauses 35 deaths and almost 117,000 cases of food poisoning each year (74). Its chief entry route for humans? Undercooked pork.

Yersiniosis’s acute symptoms are rough enough — fever, pain, bloody diarrhea — but its long-term consequences are what should really ring alarm bells. Victims of Yersiniapoisoning face a 47-times higher risk of reactive arthritis, a type of inflammatory joint disease triggered by infection (75).

Even children become post-Yersinia arthritis targets, sometimes requiring chemical synovectomy (the injection of osmic acid into a troubled joint) to relieve persistent pain (7677).

And in the less-common instances where Yersinia doesn’t bring the typical feverish, diarrheic unpleasantries? Reactive arthritis can develop even when the original infection was asymptomatic, leaving some victims unaware that their arthritis is a consequence of food-borne illness (78).

Although reactive arthritis usually subsides on its own over time, Yersinia victims remain at higher risk of chronic joint problems, including ankylosing spondylitis, sacroiliitis, tenosynovitis and rheumatoid arthritis, for years on end (798081).

Some evidence suggests that Yersinia can lead to neurological complications (82). Infected individuals with iron overload may be at higher risk of multiple liver abscesses, potentially leading to death (838485). And among people who are genetically susceptible, anterior uveitis, inflammation of the eye’s iris, is also more likely following a bout of Yersinia (8687).

Lastly, via molecular mimicry, Yersinia infection could also raise the risk of Graves’ disease, an autoimmune condition characterized by excessive thyroid hormone production (8889).

The solution? Bring on the heat. The majority of pork products (69% of tested samples, according to a Consumer Reports analysis) are contaminated with Yersiniabacteria, and the only way to safeguard against infection is through proper cooking. An internal temperature of at least 145°F for whole pork and 160°F for ground pork is necessary to decimate any lingering pathogen.

Summary: Undercooked pork can transmit Yersinia bacteria, causing short-term illness and raising the risk of reactive arthritis, chronic joint conditions, Graves’ disease and other complications.

In Conclusion

So, should health-savvy omnivores scrap pork from the menu?

The jury’s still out. For two of pork’s problems — hepatitis E and Yersinia — aggressive cooking and safe handling are enough to minimize the risk. And due to a shortage of controlled, pork-centric research capable of establishing causation, pork’s other red flags spring from epidemiology — a field rife with confounders and unjustified confidence.

Worse, many diet-and-disease studies lump pork together with other types of red meat, diluting whatever associations might exist with pork alone.

These issues make it hard to isolate the health effects of pig-derived products and determine the safety of their consumption.

That being said, caution is probably warranted. The sheer magnitude, consistency and mechanistic plausibility of pork’s connection with several serious diseases make the chances of a true risk more likely.

Until further research is available, you might want to think twice about going hog-wild on pork.

  • Spencers' Toys Marketing Display: Spencer Keeler and Spencer Coombs created this poster during an entrepreneur project in fourth grade. They manufactured and sold cars, trucks, and planes. The display board included a section where they projected a commercial they made using a digital camera.


          NECC 2008 Notes   
ISTE’s NETS•T Refreshed Roll-Out

We need real world, relevant assignments because we’ve already done well moving from the sage on the stage to the guide on the side. At this point we need to re-inspire teachers.

The new teacher standards include:
Facilitate and inspire student learning and creativity
Design and develop digital-age learning experiences and assessments
Model digital-age work and learning
Promote and model digital citizenship and responsibility
Engage in professional growth and leadership

There is a new tool available through ISTE’s website that will assist administrators in determining the level of technology integration occurring with their teachers.

Dan Edelson, Getting out of the Classroom with Technology

Volunteer Geography: A variant of citizen science. For example, students can make and share field observations and analyze and provide interpretations of that data. The concept is that students collect data by taking measurements, thy submit the data via a web form, they visualize it using interactive maps, they analyze patterns based on the data and visualization, and they may report back to others in their classes. One problem with this is that students will only be able to see small amounts of data if they are involved during the start if the project. An example of this was students testing soil samples following use of salt on icy roads. Students get to experience the full spectrum of the scientific process. In this case, students used probes and collected data in the classroom and submitted information via a website.

NGS FieldScope allows students to collect real world data. NGS chooses a region to study and invites teachers and students to participate. The teachers must purchase the equipment which costs about $1,000.

Chris Dede, Ubiquitous Computing

Goal: Repurpose common items for educational purposes (e.g., using cell phones for augmented learning).

Cheryl Lemke

We need to recognize that adolescent learning includes the home, school, peers, work, distributed resources, and communities – not just school. Our goal at this point is scalability of using technology tools for 21st century teaching, not just focusing on use in our own classrooms.

She suggests we use research-based methods to develop lessons and units that serve as “sheet music.” The teachers base their instruction on the sheet music, but also improvise.

A good teacher blog including student podcasts is “Learning on the Go.” The teacher sets up her class as a fictional consulting agency and the students solve real world algebra problems. Another teacher uses authentic travel agent activities to teach about Greek history.

SimCalc: http://www.simcalc.umassd.edu/software (teaches about perspective)

Media multi-tasking: We can only do one thing at a time, but we can quickly move from one thing to another. Kids are better at multi-tasking than adults. When learning, students are distracted when multi-tasking (except for things like music without lyrics in the background).

Universe: http://universe.daylife.com (identifies what is going on online in real time using a visual perspective)

Venezuela started teaching critical thinking to their elementary and middle school students 10 years ago. Now, they are finding increased average adult IQs across the country.

Alan November, “Designing Rigorous and Globally Connected Assignments”

This presentation is available from the “Archive of Articles” on NovemberLearning.com. This presentation is available at Digital Farm.

Students are connected to everyone in their lives – except their teachers because schools block everything. “Schools are the learning police.” There is more freedom in Chinese schools in terms of the Internet than here. We are so worried about their safety that we block their learning.

Vocabulary of the Web: Students need to learn information resources. This type of information is available on http://novemberlearning.com/blc

By adding site:en to Google searches, you will only get sites with an English country code. To get Turkey-based sites, type site:tr.

Adding view:timeline to a search, you can access the most recent information about a given search term.

Type link:http://Wikipedia.com to find out how many links exist to that particular site.

Hall Davidson, “It’s in Your Pocket: Teaching Spectacularly with Cell Phones”

http://www.myspace.com/sidekicknation (How kids use video on a daily basis)


Every classroom should have a student-designated web researcher. The teacher should never have to answer a factual question, they should only have to respond to higher-order thinking questions.

There is a Google feature that allows you to create your own search engine. November believes teachers and students should jointly build search engines. This will give students less stimuli when they do searches.

It would be nice if students could develop resources that teach content and then future students review these tutorials before class. Students, then, are responsible for learning their own content and class time is replaced with problem solving. When there’s not a lot of Internet access, students could have a DVD with all the information at home (because DVDs are more common in the home than Internet connections).

The http://jingproject.com is a downloadable application that allows you to create screencasts.

Instead of teaching teachers to use technology, November jokes that we should send two of our students to the training and one of the students should be the biggest trouble-maker in the class.

Wikipedia isn’t an encyclopedia, it’s a publishing house. Third grade students were told they would visit the Pitot House and write an article they would submit to the largest encyclopedia in the class. The students wrote and published their Wikipedia article and now they follow the RSS feed for the article and critique what other people write.

http://kiva.com: Organizes donations to small business entrepreneurs. The donors get their money back and they get reports on their projects. You can also talk to the other people who have invested in the same entrepreneurial project.


http://jott.com alters voice to text. You can call this service from your cell phone. Another option is fozme.com

Terry Cavanaugh, GIS, Google Maps, and More for Literacy Projects

http://books.google.com

There are interactive maps that show all he locations mentioned in a book (e.g., The Travels of Marco Polo). [Note to self – check out the Bible.]

Gutenkarte (http://gutenkarte.org) also makes a map of a text, showing what places are most frequently mentioned. Amazon’s Concordance also does this by telling the 100 most used words in a given text.

http://editgrid.com allows you to map a story using latitude and longitude in a spreadsheet.

http://www.goglelittrips.com has 23 stories you can follow on Google Earth. You download the .kmz file and use it with Google Earth. An example is with Make Way for Ducklings. The entire story is mapped as sections are mentioned. Also, people have added pictures of items and informational text from specific locations in the book. Anyone can make a Google Lit Trip.

http://wetellstories.co.uk/stories/week1/: Tells a story using a map – the text is embedded in the map.

Teachers can get the Pro Version of Google Earth by writing to Google and requesting it. It is possible to make a map for each student so they can each map out a story.

A dimensional mouse allows you to move in three dimensions. They are available through Amazon.

Using virtual map pins, students can add quotes from book, write facts about the locations mentioned, and adding multimedia books. This is a means of having students have greater interactivity with books.

In September, cameras will have cameras with embedded geo-tags. Some buildings are going to start putting in geo-tagging points in the buildings.

          Messe et bénédiction des Pallium pour les nouveaux archevêques métropolites en la solennité des saints Apôtres Pierre et Paul (29 juin 2017)   

MESSE ET BÉNÉDICTION DES PALLIUMS
POUR LES NOUVEAUX MÉTROPOLITES
EN LA SOLENNITÉ DES SAINTS APÔTRES PIERRE ET PAUL

HOMÉLIE DU PAPE FRANÇOIS

Place Saint-Pierre
Jeudi 29 juin 2017

[Multimédia]


 

La liturgie de ce jour nous offre trois mots essentiels pour la vie de l’Apôtre : confession, persécution, prière.

La confession est celle de Pierre dans l’Evangile, quand la question du Seigneur, de générale devient particulière. En effet, Jésus demande d’abord : « Au dire des gens, qui est le Fils de l’homme ? » (Mt 16, 13). Chez la plupart des gens, il émerge de ce “sondage” que le peuple considère Jésus comme un prophète. Alors le Maître pose aux disciples la question vraiment décisive : « Et vous ? Que dites-vous ? Pour vous qui suis-je ? » (v.15). A ce moment seul Pierre répond : « Tu es le Christ, le Fils du Dieu vivant » (v. 16). Voilà la confession : reconnaître en Jésus le Messie attendu, le Dieu vivant, le Seigneur de sa propre vie.

Cette question vitale, Jésus l’adresse aujourd’hui à nous, à nous tous, en particulier à nous pasteurs. C’est la question décisive, devant laquelle il n’y a pas de réponses de circonstance, parce que la vie est en jeu : et la question de la vie demande une réponse de vie. Car si l’on ne confesse pas Jésus Seigneur par sa propre vie, connaître les articles de foi sert à peu de choses. Aujourd’hui il nous regarde dans les yeux et demande : « Qui suis-je pour toi ? » Comme pour dire : « Suis-je encore, moi, le Seigneur de ta vie, la direction de ton cœur, la raison de ton espérance, ta confiance indestructible ? » Avec saint Pierre, renouvelons aujourd’hui, nous aussi, notre choix de vie comme disciples et apôtres. Passons de nouveau de la première à la seconde question de Jésus, pour être « à lui » non seulement en paroles, mais dans les faits et dans la vie.

Demandons-nous si nous sommes des chrétiens de salon, qui bavardent sur la manière dont vont les choses dans l’Eglise et dans le monde, ou plutôt des apôtres en chemin, qui confessent Jésus par la vie parce qu’ils l’ont dans le cœur. Celui qui confesse Jésus sait qu’il est tenu non seulement de donner son opinion mais de donner la vie ; il sait qu’il ne peut pas croire de manière tiède mais qu’il est appelé à “brûler” d’amour ; il sait que dans la vie il ne peut “se laisser vivre” ou s’installer dans le bien être, mais qu’il doit risquer de prendre le large, renouvelant chaque jour le don de soi. Celui qui confesse Jésus fait comme Pierre et Paul : il le suit jusqu’à la fin ; non jusqu’à un certain point, mais jusqu’à la fin, et il le suit sur son chemin, non pas sur nos chemins. Son chemin est le chemin de la vie nouvelle, de la joie et de la résurrection, le chemin qui passe aussi par la croix et par les persécutions.

Voilà le second mot, persécutions. Ce ne sont pas seulement Pierre et Paul qui ont donné le sang pour le Christ, mais toute la communauté, au début, a été persécutée, comme le rappelle le Livre des Actes des Apôtres (cf. 12, 1). Aujourd’hui aussi, en diverses parties du monde, parfois dans un climat de silence – un silence souvent complice -, beaucoup de chrétiens sont marginalisés, calomniés, discriminés, faits l’objet de violences même mortelles, souvent en l’absence d’engagement de la part de ceux qui pourraient faire respecter leurs droits sacrosaints.

Mais je voudrais surtout souligner ce que l’Apôtre Paul affirme avant d’« être – comme il écrit – offert en sacrifice » (2Tm 4, 6). Pour lui, vivre c’était le Christ (cf. Ph 1, 21), et le Christ crucifié (cf. 1Co 2, 1), qui a donné sa vie pour lui (cf. Ga 2, 20). Ainsi, fidèle disciple, Paul a suivi le Maître en offrant lui aussi sa vie. Sans la croix il n’y a pas de Christ, mais sans la croix il n’y a pas non plus de chrétien. En effet, « c’est le propre de la vertu chrétienne, non seulement de faire le bien, mais aussi de savoir supporter les maux » (Augustin, Disc. 46, 13), comme Jésus. Supporter le mal, ce n’est pas seulement avoir de la patience et aller de l’avant avec résignation ; supporter, c’est imiter Jésus : c’est porter le poids, le porter sur ses épaules pour lui et pour les autres. C’est accepter la croix, allant de l’avant avec confiance parce que nous ne sommes pas seuls : le Seigneur crucifié et ressuscité est avec nous. Ainsi, avec Paul nous pouvons dire qu’ « en toute circonstance nous sommes dans la détresse, mais sans être angoissés ; nous sommes déconcertés, mais non désemparés ; nous sommes pourchassés, mais non pas abandonnés » (2Co 4, 8-9).

Supporter, c’est savoir vaincre avec Jésus à la manière de Jésus, non pas à la manière du monde. Voilà pourquoi Paul – nous l’avons entendu – se considère comme un vainqueur qui va recevoir la couronne (cf. 2Tm 4, 8) et il écrit : « J’ai mené le bon combat, j’ai achevé ma course, j’ai gardé la foi » (v. 7). L’unique conduite de son bon combat a été de vivre pour : non pour lui-même mais pour Jésus et pour les autres. Il a vécu “en courant”, c’est-à-dire sans s’épargner, mais au contraire en se consumant. Il dit avoir gardé une chose : non pas la santé, mais la foi, c’est-à-dire la confession du Christ. Par amour pour lui, il a vécu les épreuves, les humiliations et les souffrances, qu’il ne faut jamais rechercher mais accepter. Et ainsi, dans le mystère de la souffrance offerte par amour, en ce mystère que tant de frères persécutés, pauvres et malades incarnent encore aujourd’hui, resplendit la force salvifique de la croix de Jésus.

Le troisième mot est prière. La vie de l’Apôtre, qui jaillit de la confession et débouche en offrande, se déroule tous les jours dans la prière. La prière est l’eau indispensable qui nourrit l’espérance et fait grandir la confiance. La prière fait que nous nous sentons aimés et nous permet d’aimer. Elle nous fait aller de l’avant dans les moments sombres, car elle allume la lumière de Dieu. Dans l’Eglise c’est la prière qui nous soutient tous et nous fait surmonter les épreuves. Nous le voyons encore dans la première lecture : « Tandis que Pierre était ainsi détenu dans la prison, l’Eglise priait Dieu pour lui avec insistance » (Ac 12, 5). Une Eglise qui prie est gardée par le Seigneur et marche en sa compagnie. Prier c’est lui confier le chemin pour qu’il en prenne soin. La prière est la force qui nous unit et nous soutient, le remède contre l’isolement et l’autosuffisance qui conduisent à la mort spirituelle. Car l’Esprit de vie ne souffle pas si l’on ne prie pas, et sans prière les prisons intérieures qui nous retiennent captifs ne s’ouvrent pas.

Que les saints Apôtres nous obtiennent un cœur comme le leur, fatigué et pacifié par la prière : fatigué parce qu’il demande, frappe et intercède, chargé de beaucoup de personnes et de situations à confier ; mais en même temps pacifié, parce que l’Esprit apporte consolation et force quand on prie. Combien il est urgent dans l’Eglise d’avoir des maîtres de prière, mais avant tout d’être des hommes et des femmes de prière, qui vivent la prière !

Le Seigneur intervient quand nous prions, lui qui est fidèle à l’amour que nous lui avons confessé et qui nous est proche dans les épreuves. Il a accompagné le chemin des Apôtres et il vous accompagnera vous aussi, chers frères Cardinaux, ici réunis dans la charité des Apôtres qui ont confessé la foi par le sang. Il sera aussi proche de vous, chers frères Archevêques qui, en recevant le Pallium, serez confirmés à vivre pour le troupeau, en imitant le Bon Pasteur qui vous soutient en vous portant sur ses épaules. Que le Seigneur lui-même, qui désire ardemment voir tout son troupeau réuni, bénisse et garde aussi la Délégation du Patriarche Œcuménique, et le cher frère Bartholomée, qui l’a envoyée en signe de communion apostolique.

Grafikus és festő. Korán megnyilatkozó tehetségét Devich Sándor szegedi rajztanár irányításával fejlesztette. Mint grafikus indult, elsősorban fametszéssel foglalkozott, melyre az akkor már Európa-szerte ismert szegedi grafikusművész, Buday György példája ösztönözte. A rézkarc művelése iránt pedig Hubert Woyty-Wimmer, bécsi mester keltette fel érdeklődését, noha az akkoriban Szegeden freskózó Aba-Novák Vilmos is érdeklődést váltott ki belőle. Vallomása szerint tőle tanult a legtöbbet, nem is formailag, hanem tartalmilag. Tanulmányúton járt Ausztriában, háromszor Olaszországban. A szegedi képzőművészek 1937-es kiállításán 42 fametszettel vett részt. Rendszeresen szerepelt Comóban, Luganóban, a hamburgi nemzetközi ex libris kongresszuson. A hadifogság után Székesfehérvárott Pallay Józseffel, valamint Áron Nagy Lajossal Képzőművészeti Kört vezetett 1950-ig. Indulása már az első években modern, s expresszionizmusba ágyazott szürrealista művek kerültek ki keze alól. Az '50-es évek végén inkább a színek felé hajlott, a grafikában is elsősorban a kolor-linó vonzotta, de itt is a vonalak és a színek teljes egyensúlyára törekedett. Prospektus, plakát, könyvcímlap, s a merkantil-grafika egyéb ágai mellett kirándult a könyvillusztráció területére is (Berczeli A. K., Fekete Madonna, Erdélyi album, stb. ). A franciaországi Nancy-ban Diplome d'Honneur-rel tüntették ki, a Valentin Le Campion emlékpályázaton kitüntetést nyert. 1965-ben a Firenzei Akadémia megalapításának 500. évfordulóján tiszteletbeli tagjai közé sorolta.

          Yelp created the hotdog app from Silicon Valley (only better)   

Yelp’s Photos Team is developing AI and machine learning algorithms to understand content in user photos. Using neural networks, the systems are able to identify specific attributes that make a photo “beautiful.” The neural network can also identify and categorize based on the type of dish in the photo ー meaning that Silicon Valley’s hotdog-identifying app actually exists. The motivation behind the AI is the rise of photo sharing at restaurants. People love snapping and gramming the trendiest spots, dishes, and menus, but they also love posting on Yelp. Over 100,000 photos are uploaded to Yelp per day, so the…

Si, sur la première photo diffusée après cette rencontre, on a pu seulement apercevoir l’ancien gouverneur du Katanga, son porte-parole Olivier Kamitatu, le président du PDC José Endundo et leur allié SindikaDokolo, le président du MPCR Jean Claude Vuemba était parmi les autres personnalités présentes.



« Quand les responsables politiques se retrouvent c’est pour parler de notre pays et prévenir le peuple congolais de la grosse arnaque et du chaos dans lequel Joseph Kabila et ses sbires veulent amener le pays », a confié le député de Kasangulu à C-News, avant d’ajouter : « malheureusement pour eux, cette fois-ci nous n’accepterons pas l’arrogance des Kabilistes ».

          Comment on Housing benefit scrapped for 18-21 year olds  by Boostick   
Correction, I missed off the end of this sentence: "How does someone with an intractable neurological conditions, or devastating cognitive disabilities compete in the job market?"
          Comment on Housing benefit scrapped for 18-21 year olds  by Boostick   
Some of us can't be rehabilitated. How do you rehabilitate somebody with a progressive or terminal illness? How do you rehabilitate missing limbs back, or lost sight and hearing? How does someone with an intractable neurological conditions, or devastating cognitive disabilities? Do you know of many employers who'd happily hire someone with an IQ of sixty, or who has seizures constantly, or who's completely non-verbal? You have the reasoning that you do because of privilege. It must be nice to be in a position to look down on benefit recipients, but some of us have no choice. If, as i suspect, you are an American, then the war on the poor that started with Reagan will not have escaped your notice. What may have escaped your notice is the legions of homeless people, of multiple families crammed into one dwelling, or people living in deathtraps. There are families in the US surviving on $5 a day, does it look like the system is working? Nobody ever wants to be on benefits, but some of us have no choice.

          Create YOUR Own Economy   
Have been thinking along the lines of how we entrepreneurs respond to swings in the economy... and have been discussing the concept of 'Create YOUR Own Economy' at our INNER Circle Business Forum meetings - for venues see: http://www.innercircleforum.com/

You see, we entrepreneurs just don't have any time for recessions and/or depressions in our economies... nor, for that matter, can we afford any time with negative thinkers. So the only way to avoid the problems that affect others is to create our own economies.

In ..1 ..2 ..3 terms there are just 3 simple things that we can focus on:


1. To SELL MORE of my product/service - that's up to me and my team

2. To CREATE MORE sales distribution channels - collaborating with like-minded entrepreneurs in your business network

3. To CREATE NEW revenue-generating opportunities/businesses - through Joint Ventures/Strategic Alliances - see: mdiVENTURES


It's all about being of like-minded, abundance mentality with plenty of enthusiasm and serious intent for sharing resources, skills and opportunity.

Get creative, connect, collaborate, innovate ways to generate another R10 000, R50 000, R100 000, R500 000, R1 MILLION and MORE with your entrepreneurial business peers... whatever the scale of YOUR business objective meeting... YOU CAN do it..!

          De geschiedenis van San Michele - Axel Munthe   


Dit boek had al een hele reis achter de rug voor het in mijn handen terecht kwam. Het is voorzien van twee stempels: 'Ministerie van Landsverdediging' en 'Athina Travel'.
Ik kreeg het boek ooit van een collega (zie mijn log 'Dubieuze titels uit een Vlaamse doos') en nu stond het boek stof te vangen in de boekenkast op Kreta.

Het was een beetje een gok, dit boek. Geen achterflap tekst om me door te laten beïnvloeden.
Uiteindelijk gaf de wilde gok prijs. Ik heb genóten van dit boek!

'De geschiedenis van San Michele' is het autobiografische relaas van een arts, genaamd Axel Munthe.
Hij schreef het in 1929, inmiddels met pensioen, bijna blind en teruggekeerd naar Zweden in afwachting van een naderende dood (tenminste dat maakte ik op uit het laatste hoofdstuk). Dat hij zich daarin vergist had mag duidelijk zijn, hij stierf pas in 1949.

In dit boek vertelt hij over zijn gehele carrière als huisarts, met een specialisme in neurologie. Het speelt zich af in het prè-antibiotica tijdperk en de sterfgevallen in zijn boek zijn ontelbaar.
Sommige hoofdstukken gaan over specifieke patiënten. Zo rond 1880 was 'last hebben van je blindedarm' een modeverschijnsel. Massa's mensen (voornamelijk vrouwen) leden eraan. Op feestjes was het normaal dat wanneer men je vroeg hoe het ging je antwoordde: 'niet zo best, mijn blindedarm speelt weer op'.
Met name de nuchtere kijk van Dr Munthe is verfrissend. Hij heeft veel interesse in de relatie tussen psyche en lichamelijk welzijn en realiseert zich dat veel lichamelijke ziekten hun werkelijke oorzaak vinden in hysterie. Ook ziet hij in welke belangrijke rol de arts speelt in het terugkoppelen van medische uitslagen. Zijn motto: vertel een patiënt dat hij nog maar kort te leven heeft en hij zal spoedig overlijden. Vertel een gezond mens dat hij ziek is en hij zal het stellig worden.

Hij heeft een bijzondere interesse in hypnose, maar beklemtoont ook de gevaren ervan. Eén van zijn grootste blunders is wanneer hij een radeloze patiënt door middel van hypnose 'geneest' van homoseksualiteit. De therapie is geslaagd, de man trouwt en al snel is zijn vrouw zwanger.
Krap een jaar later verneemt Dr Munthe dat de man suïcide heeft gepleegd. Hij komt al snel tot de conclusie dat homoseksualiteit geen ziekte is maar een aangeboren geaardheid die men niet moet proberen te 'genezen'. Vooruitstrevend gedachtegoed in zijn tijd.
Op vele vlakken is hij zijn tijd vooruit; Door zijn opinies maakt hij echter naast vrienden en bewonderaars ook vijanden en zelfs stalkers. 

Ieder hoofdstuk in het boek is een avontuur op zich. Hij werkt als arts in oorlogstijd, tijdens een massale cholera plaag in Napels en na een verschrikkelijke aardbeving in Messina.
Hij reist veel. Soms voor zijn plezier, eenmaal als 'lijkenbegeleider' en soms om te vluchten.
Parijs verlaat hij omdat hij zijn rijke, verwende, buitenlandse patienten die enkel aan modeziekten schijnen te lijden niet meer verdraagt. Tevens heeft hij hevig liefdesverdriet, al zullen we er nooit achter komen wie zijn hart brak.
Over zijn beide huwelijken rept hij in zijn autobiografie overigens geen woord. 

Zijn lievelingsplek is Capri. Hier begint en eindigt het boek en wanneer het leven hem te zwaar wordt is dit altijd zijn toevluchtsoord.
Bij zijn eerste bezoek aan Capri is hij nog maar 18 jaar oud. Het is liefde op het eerste gezicht.
Naast zijn interesse in de medische wereld heeft Dr Munthe nog twee andere grote passies: oudheden en de natuur.
Tijdens zijn eerste bezoek op Capri beklimt hij de berg. Tijdens de klim ziet hij overal Romeinse ruïnes. De lokale bewoners noemen het 'de rommel van Tiberus'.
Op een landgoed, bezaaid met deze 'rommel' ontmoet hij de eigenaar, een oude boer.
De opmerking van de boer is tenenkrommend (ik sloeg een gil toen ik het las). Bij het graven op zijn landgoed vindt de boer een ondergrondse ruimte bedekt met rode fresco's. Hij ziet het als een gelukstreffer want hij kan zo'n kelder goed gebruiken. Wel was het verdorie een helse klus om die lelijke fresco's eraf te krabben en te bedekken met cement!
Het zweet breekt uit bij Dr Munthe door deze opmerking en vanaf dat moment heeft hij nog maar één doel: hij zal dit landgoed kopen, de ruïnes beschermen, zoveel mogelijk herstellen en er zijn thuis van maken.

Na jaren sparen (en af en toe nachtmerries bij de gedachte dat de boer inmiddels wel overleden kon zijn en zijn landgoed verdeeld over zijn kinderen) bereikt hij zijn doel en koopt het landgoed.

Zijn villa (de villa van San Michele) is nog steeds te bezoeken op Capri. Het doet nu dienst als museum. Ook zijn villa staat vol met archeologische schatten al geloof ik geen seconde dat hij in het boek eerlijk is over de herkomst daarvan. Een hoofd van Medusa zou hij zelf hebben opgedoken voor de kust en de herkomst van de millennia oude Sfinx die nu op zijn landgoed prijkt kreeg hij van een Romeinse soldaat door in zijn dromen.
Túúrlijk...
Ik vermoed dat Dr Munthe in zijn obsessie voor oudheden geregeld iets 'onwettig' in bezit verkreeg.

Het boek is doorspekt met verhalen over oudheden, delen van mythen, vlagen van dromen, verhalen over patiënten, ziekte, dood en verderf maar ook verhalen over collega artsen, illegale abortussen, artsen die krankzinnig waren in zijn ogen, artsen die fraude plegen.
Zijn liefde voor dieren loopt als een rode draad door het boek.
Wanneer iemand zijn geliefde hond dood trapt gaat hij een duel per geweer aan met de dader, een duel dat hij ternauwenood overleeft.
Op zijn landgoed in Capri bezit hij een halve dierentuin en hij zet zich hevig in voor de rechten van het dier.

'De geschiedenis van San Michele' is een opmerkelijke reis terug in de tijd.
Naar een periode waarin je maar beter geen longontsteking of cholera kon krijgen. Een tijd waarin je bij voorkeur niet krankzinnig moest worden (gezien zijn beschrijvingen van de gestichten) en zowel mensenrechten als dierenrechten een nogal vaag concept waren.
Een tijd waarin reizen naar de andere kant van Europa weken tijd vergde; Treinen, boten, vlotten en vervolgens dagen lang door een bos waden om je bestemming te bereiken was heel normaal.
Dr Munthe beschrijft dit alles vol ironie en zelfspot.

Zelf lijd ik de laatste tijd behoorlijk aan fysieke ongemakken maar ook een flinke dosis hypochondrie.
Ik kan me levendig voorstellen hoe Dr Munthe gereageerd zou hebben wanneer ik patiënt in zijn praktijk was geweest;
'Deze patiënt lijdt duidelijk aan hysterie en heeft een verblijf van enkele maanden rond het Middellandse zeegebied nodig. Ze lijdt niet aan haar blindedarm, ondanks de diagnose van mijn collega arts'.

Dát zou hij zeggen. En geen wóórd meer.

Voor meer info en beeldmateriaal raad ik de facebookgroep aan. Het boek is (Engelstalig) volkomen legaal te downloaden als ebook.

          SOBRE LOS FONDOS CONCURSABLES   

Este 2012 se cumplen 20 años desde que el Ministerio de Educación implementara una fórmula para que el estado –tras el llamado apagón cultural del gobierno militar–, subvencionara a los artistas y les permitiera crear y difundir sus respectivas obras. El sistema, que ha tenido varios nombres pero se conoce genéricamente como Fondart (Fondo de Desarrollo de las Artes), ha cambiado de ministerio, ampliado sus recursos, su ámbito de acción (ahora incluye hasta a la artesanía) y mejorado su sistema de postulaciones, pero a lo largo de toda su historia ha suscitado tal cantidad de polémicas que, sin haber perdido legitimidad, ha dejado de ser esa idea auspiciosa y feliz que vendría en “colocar al arte en el sitial que de verdad le corresponde” (Ricardo Lagos).

En la presente selección del Fondart, que se hizo a la velocidad de la neurosis, muchos artistas alegan imprecisiones a la hora de evaluar y entregar los fundamentos de exclusión. Por ejemplo, a un amigo le objetaron los escasos honorarios que pedía, y a otro, cuyo puntaje fue perfecto, le dijeron que no obstante ello su trabajo “carecía de interés”, lo cual tiene algo de burla, como la expresión de una reputada autoridad regional que aseveró que “nadie se muere de cultura”. Es decir, a las falencias naturales del sistema –ante todo la escasez de recursos que en un contexto competitivo convierten al medio en una bolsa de gatos, y al artista en prostituta (Baudelaire) “por verse obligado a ser la mercancía y el anuncio de la misma”– se suma ahora la brutal inexperiencia de varios de los encargados, muchos de los cuales poco y nada tienen que ver con el arte. ¿Acaso el feroz sino de la tecnocracia?

Pero dadas así las cosas, el peor error que podrían cometer los artistas es pelearse entre ellos a causa del Fondart. Que alguien no postule no lo convierte en héroe; que alguien lo critique sólo porque no ganó, es hipócrita o envidioso; y que alguien lo defienda sólo porque ganó, es un mediocre o un desvergonzado. Pero el asunto es todavía más complejo.

El juicio de una institución, que por emanar de un poder del estado se asume como perfecta (en concordancia con su génesis moderna), puede hacernos creer que sus juicios SON la realidad; y hacernos olvidar que, en una buena medida, estamos gobernados por leyes azarosas y por la incertidumbre. Las injusticias –como el caso de aquel artista carente de ideas y que hace de amanuense en decenas de proyectos que año a año obtiene, antítesis perfecta de ese otro que por ineptitud metodológica o falta de contactos yace sumido en la inopia– son parte del juego. Quizás haría falta a los artistas, aunque sea para salirse del esquema del iluminado, una dosis de estoicismo: esa fe indestructible pero carente de toda esperanza.

          Mort de Simone Veil, rescapée de la Shoah et grande figure de la vie politique   
Grande figure de la vie politique française et féministe convaincue, Simone Veil, qui a porté la loi sur l'interruption volontaire de grossesse (IVG) et qui incarnait aux yeux des Français la mémoire de la Shoah, est décédée vendredi matin à 89 ans.
Mort de Simone Veil, rescapée de la Shoah et grande figure de la vie politique
"Ma mère est morte ce matin à son domicile. Elle allait avoir 90 ans le 13 juillet", a annoncé à l'AFP l'avocat Jean Veil, fils de cette centriste historique attachée aux valeurs morales et républicaines.

Membre du Conseil constitutionnel de 1998 à 2007, Simone Veil s'était notamment illustrée en faisant voter en 1974 la loi portant son nom sur l'IVG. Elle était alors ministre de la Santé sous la présidence de Valéry Giscard d'Estaing.

Son difficile combat pour faire adopter cette loi -contre une partie de la droite- a fait d'elle, pour longtemps, la personnalité politique la plus populaire de France.

Née le 13 juillet 1927 à Nice (Alpes-Maritimes), Simone Veil est une rescapée des camps de la mort, où elle avait été déportée à 16 ans. Elle avait rencontré à Sciences Po Antoine Veil qui deviendra son mari.

Son décès a suscité une pluie de réactions unanimes dans toute la classe politique.

"Puisse son exemple inspirer nos compatriotes, qui y trouveront le meilleur de la France", a notamment tweeté le chef de l’État Emmanuel Macron. "En Simone Veil, la France perd une de ses plus éminentes figures", a-t-il ajouté dans un communiqué.

L'ancien président Valéry Giscard d'Estaing, qui en avait fait sa ministre, s'est, lui, dit "bouleversé", souhaitant que la "vie exemplaire" de cette "femme exceptionnelle", "reste une référence pour tous les jeunes d'aujourd'hui".

- Elle "reste immortelle" -

François Hollande a aussi salué auprès de l'AFP une femme qui "a incarné la dignité, le courage et la droiture", une des "grandes consciences" de la France, tandis que son prédécesseur, Nicolas Sarkozy a loué une femme qu'il a "admirée", "aimée" et qui "reste immortelle".

Pour la présidente du Front national Marine Le Pen, Simone Veil est "une femme qui aura incontestablement marqué de son empreinte la vie politique française".

Elle "appartient au meilleur de notre Histoire. Et son nom vivra dans notre gratitude pour toujours", a réagi le leader de La France insoumise, Jean-Luc Mélenchon.

La maire PS de Paris Anne Hidalgo a fait savoir qu'elle comptait attribuer son nom à "un lieu marquant de la capitale".

Hors de la sphère politique, le Planning familial a notamment exprimé son "immense tristesse", tandis que le grand rabbin de France, Haïm Korsia a rendu hommage à une femme "déterminée et toujours digne". "Toutes les femmes la pleurent et lui disent leur immense reconnaissance", a salué la philosophe féministe Élisabeth Badinter.

- Présidente du Parlement européen -

Simone Veil avait commencé en 1956 sa carrière dans la magistrature, comme substitut à l'administration centrale du ministère de la Justice. Elle a été la première femme à devenir secrétaire général du Conseil supérieur de la magistrature (1970-74).

Entrée en politique en 1974, comme ministre de la Santé dans le gouvernement Chirac, elle le demeurera dans les trois gouvernements Barre, se voyant adjoindre la Sécurité sociale en 1977-78, la Famille en 1978-79.

Tête de liste UDF lors des élections au Parlement européen en 1979, elle avait renoncé à son poste ministériel pour présider le Parlement européen (1979-1982). Réélue en 1984 et 1989, elle siégera au Parlement jusqu'en 1993.

De 1993 à 1995, Simone Veil a été ministre d’État, ministre des Affaires sociales, de la Santé et de la Ville, dans le gouvernement Balladur.

Soutien de Raymond Barre à l'élection présidentielle de 1988, elle avait rallié Édouard Balladur dans la course à l’Élysée en 1995, puis soutenu Nicolas Sarkozy en 2007, se montrant très critique à l'encontre du centriste François Bayrou. Elle avait défendu le "oui" au référendum de 2005 sur la Constitution européenne.

En 2007, elle a écrit une autobiographie à succès "Une vie", dans laquelle cette ennemie de la langue de bois au fort caractère racontait son destin de rescapée des camps, son athéisme, son féminisme.

En 2008, elle avait été élue à l'Académie française et, en 2012, élevée à la dignité de grand'croix, plus la haute distinction de l'Ordre de la Légion d'honneur.

Lors de l'une de ses dernières apparitions publiques, elle était présente en octobre 2012 au côté de Jean-Louis Borloo au congrès fondateur de l'UDI. La première carte d'adhérent du nouveau parti centriste porte son nom.


          Cinco años sanando   
El Hospital Universitario de Burgos (HUBU) celebra sus cinco años de actividad con cifras que multiplican la cantidad y la calidad de la atención sanitaria que se prestaba en el, ya demolido, antiguo Hospital General Yagüe. Desde su inauguración en junio de 2012 se han realizado, entre otras cosas, 150.000 ingresos, dos millones y medio de consultas, 600.000 urgencias y han venido al mundo en sus paritorios 10.000 burgaleses. El director gerente del HUBU, Miguel Ángel Ortiz de Valdivielso, se muestra satisfecho con estas cifras «abrumadoras» e imposibles de imaginar en las antiguas instalaciones. Datos que demuestran la necesidad que había de un nuevo hospital en Burgos y la profesionalidad de sus 3.100 trabajadores que han sabido adaptarse a los cambios, apostar por la innovación y convertir al HUBU en el «buque insignia de la sanidad pública de Castilla y León», según afirmó el consejero, Antonio María Sáez Aguado, en la celebración de su quinto cumpleaños. Una exposición con paneles informativos de la evolución de cada servicio en este tiempo, condujo a los invitados a la celebración del quinto aniversario en el salón de actos del HUBU que clausuró el consejero y donde la directora médica, Carmen Rodríguez Pajares, realizó un balance detallado de las cifras de actividad que han experimentado un crecimiento del 40% en cirugía programada con recursos propios, o un 10% en las atenciones realizadas en áreas de urgencias donde, además, se han reducido los ingresos un 14 por ciento. Ortiz de Valdivielso deja claro que el HUBU es un hospital público con «un modelo de gestión político que no afecta a los profesionales y al funcionamiento diario» de los servicios médicos puesto que son los servicios no asistenciales lo que gestiona la empresa Eficanza. Desde su concepción, y en sus cinco años de historia, ese modelo de gestión se ha convertido en el centro del debate y la investigación política, mientras en el HUBU cada día se atiende a más de 700 pacientes ingresados. Ortíz de Valdivielso considera que, dadas las cifras, «casi todos los burgaleses tendrán una historia personal» con el hospital y se queda con el elevado índice de satisfacción que han conseguido hasta ahora y que espera mantener en el futuro. El director gerente del centro considera que las cifras demuestran la oferta de servicios y la capacidad de trabajo de los profesionales del hospital pero reconoce que «la demanda se está disparando» y, en su opinión, «parece inevitable que existan listas de espera». Conseguir un «equilibrio» y reducir esas listas es uno de sus objetivos al frente del complejo, como lo es para el resto de hospital españoles. Referente nacional y regional Además, en este tiempo, el HUBU se ha convertido en centro de referencia nacional y regional para áreas como la cirugía plástica (implante de miembros), cirugía pediátrica compleja, intensivos pediátricos, radiocirugía y radioterapia, medicina nuclear, neurocirugía, hemodinámica, angiología y cirugía vascular, unidad de ictus y trastornos del movimiento o radiología intervencionista, entre otras. Y ha consolidado la importante labor de las 36 unidades de enfermería con proyectos como la creación de consultas con agenda propia en once especialidades sanitarias, o la incorporación de la gestión clínica en las mismas. Para mantener esta evolución, la directora médica destacó la importancia de seguir apostando por dos pilares fundamentales: la investigación y la formación. Todo sin olvidar que el objetivo final es incrementar la calidad de la atención sanitaria que reciben los ciudadanos que, hasta la fecha, se ha traducido en unos índices de satisfacción muy elevados. Más allá de las cifras, cinco jefes de servicio (Carlos García Girón, de Oncología; Jesús de la Gándara de Psiquiatría; Jesús Gutiérrez Dueñas, de Cirugía Pedriátrica; Federico Sáez Royuela, de Aparato Digestivo y Cristóbal Cano López, de Radiodiagnóstico) junto al subdirector de enfermería de Calidad y Humanización, Carmelo Villafranca Renes, dieron vida a los datos en una mesa redonda. Hospital General Yagüe En este marco se recordó al antiguo hospital General Yagüe, que fue demolido el pasado año, y el movimiento médico y ciudadano que reivindicó en su momento la necesidad de nuevas instalaciones sanitarias con manifestaciones multitudinarias en la calle. Una reivindicación que se consiguió hace cinco años y cuyo proceso de puesta en marcha ha puesto de manifiesto la profesionalidad de quienes tuvieron que afrontar el traslado, con todo lo que esto conlleva, y la adaptación posterior a los nuevos espacios. El HUBU es una moderna infraestructura dotada con avanzados equipamientos y la última tecnología. Cuenta con una capacidad de hospitalización de 744 camas, que se completa con un área de consultas dotada de 190 locales y medio centenar de gabinetes de exploración. En el área quirúrgica se dispone de 26 quirófanos, dos de ellos paritorios; y todos ellos integrados y digitalizados. En el Hospital Universitario de Burgos se han creado nuevos servicios como el de hospitalización limitada, la unidad de corta estancia -en la que se ha atendido ya a 4.500 personas-, la hospitalización a domicilio -con 10.000 usuarios en estos años-, o el hospital de día -en el que se han asistido ya 220.000 casos-. Además, la incorporación de nuevas técnicas es uno de los puntos en los que el HUBU adquiere una gran notoriedad, incrementando la calidad de la atención y tratamiento de los pacientes con innovación y mejoras organizativas. Aquí destaca la aplicación de la cirugía artroscópica de cadera, tobillo y hombro, la ortopedia infantil, los rescates de cadera en el adulto, la unidad multidisciplinar de infecciones osteoarticulares, la creación del área de expectantes en el servicio de obstetricia o la consolidación de la cirugía laparoscópica, entre otros.

          EPA Updates Literature Review and FQPA Determination   

By Lisa M. Campbell, Timothy D. Backstrom, and James V. Aidala

A noteworthy development in the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) ongoing and controversial consideration of the potential use of epidemiological data in its pesticide risk assessments occurred on May 25, 2017, when EPA placed in the public dockets for certain organophosphate (OP) pesticides an “update” of the September 15, 2015, Literature Review and Food Quality Protection Act (FQPA) determination, along with a response to comments on the original document.  These documents were signed by EPA scientists on December 29, 2016, prior to the new Administration, but were placed in the docket only last month, under the new Administration.  The documents attempt to rebut the various criticisms of EPA’s assessment of the epidemiology studies for chlorpyrifos and the original FQPA safety factor determination for OP pesticides, and they reaffirm the policy embodied in the original Literature Review.  Because these new documents were signed in the last days of the Obama Administration, they may be viewed by some industry stakeholders as an effort by some at EPA to “lock in” the prior policy concerning OP pesticides.

The public release of the “updated” Literature Review and response to comments must be considered in the context of the ongoing chlorpyrifos battles that have received significant public attention.  During the five months between the date that these “update” documents were signed and the date that EPA placed them in the public docket, EPA Administrator Pruitt issued a decision on March 29, 2017, to deny the petition filed by the Pesticide Action Network North America (PANNA) and the National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) requesting that EPA revoke all tolerances and cancel all registrations for chlorpyrifos products.  See EPA Denies Petition to Ban Chlorpyrifos.  In his denial decision, Administrator Pruitt concluded it would be appropriate for EPA to defer determining whether chlorpyrifos is likely to cause neurodevelopmental effects at exposure levels below the levels that cause acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibition until the completion of the registration review process for chlorpyrifos.  Administrator Pruitt based his decision on the premise that “the science addressing neurodevelopmental effects remains unresolved” and that “significant uncertainty … exists regarding the potential for chlorpyrifos to cause adverse neurodevelopmental effects.”

Some industry stakeholders may argue that the decision by the EPA scientists who prepared the “updated” Literature Review which concluded that EPA should retain the 10X FQPA uncertainty factor for OP pesticides can be reconciled with Administrator Pruitt’s subsequent denial decision, because the “updated” FQPA safety factor determination does not preclude further scientific discussion concerning the potential for neurodevelopmental effects from OP pesticide exposures.  On the other hand, other industry stakeholders may be concerned about the immediate adverse impact of this “updated” FQPA determination on the risk assessments prepared by EPA for OP pesticides and the measures that will be demanded by EPA to mitigate purported risks.

On April 5, 2017, PANNA and NRDC responded to Administrator Pruitt’s March 29, 2017, decision to deny their petition to revoke the tolerances and cancel the registrations for chlorpyrifos by submitting to the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals a Motion for Further Mandamus Relief.  That motion was substantially based on the premise that EPA does not “suggest that it has reconsidered its finding that chlorpyrifos is unsafe.”  The briefing on the new mandamus motion was completed on May 5, 2017, several weeks before EPA disclosed the documents concerning the “updated” FQPA determination.  Nevertheless, petitioners could try to argue that these documents constitute further evidence supporting their key premise that EPA has not actually revisited its prior determination that chlorpyrifos exposures are unsafe.

The legal and policy issues posed by EPA’s evaluation of the epidemiological data for chlorpyrifos and by EPA’s determination that these data create sufficient uncertainty to warrant retention of the FQPA 10X safety factor for all OP pesticides will be a continued source of controversy, and will be watched with interest by all stakeholders.

More information and updates on chlorpyrifos, the epidemiological data, and their surrounding legal issues is available on our blog item under keyword chlorpyrifos.

          ‘Pieza plástica’ o el espectador cómplice   


Del 30 junio al 02 de julio 2017
En: Madrid, Teatros del Canal

El argentino Luciano Cáceres llega a Teatros del Canal (Madrid) para presentar el estreno en España de 'Pieza plástica', un texto del dramaturgo alemán Marius von Mayenburg. Esta comedia de situaciones de pareja desquiciantes retrata a una familia desde el absurdo, la sátira y la crítica social y podrá verse en la Sala Verde en tres únicas funciones.

A través de escenas exageradas de conflictos y peleas, el director centra la mirada del espectador desde el punto de vista de un niño adolescente que de manera entrecortada va entendiendo como es la vida de los adultos. Estos adultos son sus padres, padre médico, madre asistente de un artista, un artista y una empleada doméstica que parece que llega a salvarles la vida.

El niño Vincent va capturando todo con su cámara de vídeo y va sacando sus propias conclusiones. Las actuaciones son crispadas por momentos y en otros solo relatan fragmentos de su historia, de su drama, de su comedia. Ellos son seres, personajes que además interpretan el rol que supuestamente tienen asignado en su hogar.

Clase media, responsabilidad, moral, explotación, consumo, arte, frustración, neurosis y comedia, Pieza plástica tiene todos los ingredientes necesarios de una obra de teatro contemporánea, donde el espectador se convierte en cómplice de la acción porque se vuelve activo al romperse la cuarta pared.

          A little old school scifi   
The other day Harris wrote about books you are supposed to like but just don't. He was talking about literary fiction, but the same holds for science fiction. Two books (and series) I just could not get into were Zelazny's Amber books and Robert Silverberg's Lord Valentine's Castle. The thing is, I love the giant multi volume fantasy novels, but I can rarely stick with multivolume scifi and these two didn't work at all.

Thanks to a Powells display, I did pick up a Silverberg book that I did like. The Book of Skulls is dated but reasonably well written and engaging. Set in the early 70s and populated by earnest philosophically minded college students, the book nearly collapses under the weight of bullshit. The short length and the tensions between the characters keeps it going.

The premise is that one of the four mismatched college roommates (one neurotic Jew, one mincing gay, one bronzed Midwesterner and one aloof aristocrat ---stereotype much?) discover the possibility that a cult can teach them how to live forever. The catch is that four men (and note the emphasis on men) can enter, but only two leave. One has to commit suicide and another must be murdered by the other two. Therein lies the book's tension.

While I think male readers will like the book, I think female readers will not. Most scifi of the period was male centric, but this one is is almost anti-female. Not because of the extensive focus on gay relationships, but because all of the women in the book are portrayed negatively or anti-humanely. The women serve only to hinder our heroes from gaining wisdom or as objects for their learning. Come to think of it, this might really put off male readers too.

          La BAD appelle à l’augmentation du crédit aux micros, petites et moyennes entreprises, à 135 milliards $   
la-bad-appelle-a-l-augmentation-du-credit-aux-micros-petites-et-moyennes-entreprises-a-135-milliards
La Banque africaine de développement (BAD) appelle les institutions financières à accroître les prêts et à fournir
des instruments de financement plus diversifiés et innovants aux micros, petites et moyennes entreprises africaines.
Selon l’institution financière panafricaine, les établissements de crédit financier doivent augmenter leurs prêts à plus de 135 milliards $ pour faire face à la demande des micros, des petites et moyennes entreprises (MPME). Le dynamisme entrepreneurial africain est actuellement à un tournant important. En effet, comme l’explique le président de la BAD, Akinwumi Adesina (photo), environ 80% des Africains considèrent l'esprit d'entreprise comme une bonne opportunité de carrière. Ceci témoigne de la montée de la culture entrepreneuriale africaine mais qui demeure dirigée vers les secteurs où la productivité reste faible.
« Les nouvelles stratégies d'industrialisation devraient se concentrer sur le dynamisme et le ciblage des entreprises privées en croissance rapide du continent qui ont le potentiel de créer des emplois de qualité », a notamment souhaité le président de la BAD.
Dans un discours marquant la journée internationale des MPME, il a révélé que les entreprises générant le plus d'emplois dans le secteur formel en Afrique sont celles de moins de 20 employés et moins de cinq ans d'expérience. Adesina a déclaré que l’institution qu’il dirige collaborait également avec la Banque européenne d'investissement et la Commission européenne pour aider à créer et développer 1 500 entreprises innovantes, tout en créant 25 000 emplois directs et 100 000 emplois indirects en Afrique.

          France : BNP Paribas accusée de « complicité de génocide » au Rwanda   
Deux plaintes viennent d'être déposées devant la justice française avec un objectif commun : faire la
lumière sur le rôle de la France dans le génocide des Tutsis au Rwanda. L'une, déposée par trois associations, vise la BNP Paribas ; l'autre, portée par l'association Survie, cible des responsables politiques français en poste à l'époque.
Deux nouveaux fronts judiciaires viennent de s’ouvrir en France dans la bataille mémorielle sur les responsabilités de Paris dans le génocide des Tutsis au Rwanda en 1994. Une première plainte contre X avec constitution de partie civile a été déposée par l’association Survie, ce mercredi 28 juin. Elle vise « les responsables politiques et militaires français » de l’époque soupçonnés d’avoir fourni des armes au régime rwandais, avant et pendant le génocide de 1994.
« Nous avions déjà porté plainte en 2015, mais cette plainte avait été rejetée, au motif, notamment, que des ministres ne peuvent être jugés que par la Cour de Justice de la République. Le Parquet avait alors considéré que la plainte ne visait que les ministres et le président de la République d’alors, mais il y a en fait énormément d’autres responsabilités qui sont à rechercher dans les cabinets ministériels ou chez les responsables militaires », explique Thomas Borrel, porte-parole de Survie. « Cette fois, en nous constituant partie civile, nous espérons bien pousser le Parquet à ouvrir une instruction », pointe-t-il.

Des armes livrées malgré l’embargo

La seconde plainte a été déposée le même jour par Sherpa, le Collectif des parties civiles pour le Rwanda et Ibuka France. Selon ces associations, BNP Paribas se serait rendu coupable de « complicité de génocide, complicités de crimes de guerre et de complicité de crimes contre l’Humanité » en permettant, en plein génocide, le financement de l’achat d’un important stock d’armes par le gouvernement rwandais, alors qu’un embargo avait été décrété par les Nations unies le 17 mai 1994.
Les ONG pointent du doigt la Banque nationale de Paris − devenue depuis la BNP Paribas −, qui selon elles auraient autorisé deux transferts depuis le compte détenu chez elle par la Banque nationale du Rwanda vers un compte au nom de Petrus Willem Ehlers dans la banque suisse UBP. Des fonds qui, selon Sherpa, auraient permis à Théoneste Bagosora – surnommé le « cerveau du génocide » et condamné à 35 ans de prison en appel en 2011 – d’acheter 80 tonnes d’armes, kalachnikovs et munitions, livrées les 16 et 20 juin 1994 à Goma, au Zaïre (actuelle RDC), avant d’être transportées vers le Rwanda voisin. Une livraison confirmée par le colonel Bagosora lors de son procès devant le tribunal international pour le Rwanda, qui a précisé que ces armes avaient servi à « aller donner un coup de main à Kigali ».

Une vente d’arme scellée aux Seychelles

Les transferts visés par la plainte contre BNP Paribas portent sur un montant global de 1,3 millions de dollars (soit l’équivalent de 1,1 millions d’euros). Le bénéficiaire, le Sud-Africain Petrus Willem Ehlers, dirige alors la société Delta Aero qui sert d’intermédiaire dans des ventes d’armes.
La vente d’arme a été finalisée aux Seychelles le 17 juin 1994, entre le vendeur d’armes sud-africain et le colonel rwandais Théoneste Bagosora. Celui-ci, bénéficiant de complicités, fournit un faux certificat de destination finale, afin de contourner l’embargo pesant sur le Rwanda en faisant croire que le contrat a été passé par le Zaïre.
Le simple fait que le montant soit si élevé, en provenance de la Banque nationale du Rwanda, aurait dû, à l’époque, alerter la BNP
« À l’époque, nous étions en plein embargo de l’ONU. Les ordres de virements de la Banque nationale du Rwanda auraient dû être particulièrement surveillés. D’autres banques ont d’ailleurs gelé les fonds de la BNR, notamment la banque Bruxelles Lambert. Le simple fait que le montant soit si élevé, en provenance de la Banque nationale du Rwanda, aurait dû, à l’époque, alerter la BNP », estime Marie-Laure Guislain, directrice du contentieux au sein de Sherpa. Sur la dimension pénale de la plainte, elle précise que la complicité de génocide ne suppose pas « d’intention génocidaire », mais « d’avoir su que l’acte allait servir à la commission d’un génocide ».

Une affaire connue depuis 1995

Pour l’instant, la BNP Paribas ne fait aucun commentaire. « Nous avons appris le dépôt de cette plainte par voie médiatique, nous ne disposons pas des éléments suffisants pour la commenter », se contente de répondre à Jeune Afrique Olivier Durbize, responsable de la communication du géant bancaire français.
L’affaire est pourtant ancienne. « Les questions de trafic d’armes malgré l’embargo ont été levées dès 1995 par Human Rights Watch, ce qui avait débouché sur la mise en place d’une commission d’enquête de l’ONU », souligne Jacques Morel, auteur de La France au cœur du génocide des Tutsi (éd. L’Esprit frappeur). Les deux versements visés par la plainte contre BNP Paribas, tout comme le nom de l’intermédiaire sud-africain, figurent d’ailleurs en toutes lettres dans le rapport de la Commission internationale d’enquête des Nations unies sur les livraisons d’armes illicites dans la région des Grands Lacs, remis en 1998 à Kofi Annan. À l’époque, la commission avait noté que le ministère français des Affaires étrangères, sollicité sur ce dossier, n’avait pas donné suite.

Une offensive pas concertée

Ces deux plaintes déposées à Paris interviennent alors que la revue XXI vient tout juste de publier un témoignage inédit sur la livraison d’armes au régime génocidaire rwandais par la France. « Au cours de l’opération Turquoise, ordre avait été donné de réarmer les Hutus qui franchissaient la frontière », y affirme notamment un haut fonctionnaire français qui a eu accès aux archives classées secret défense. « J’ai reçu l’instruction de charger les conteneurs d’armes sur ces camions, qui les ont emmenés ensuite au Zaïre pour les remettre aux forces gouvernementales rwandaises», déclarait déjà à Jeune Afrique, en avril 2014, un officier français, Guillaume Ancel, qui était capitaine au sein de l’opération Turquoise.
Les différents protagonistes assurent que l’initiative n’a pas été coordonnée. « Nous n’avons appris la volonté de Sherpa de déposer plainte contre BNP Paribas qu’en début de semaine », explique ainsi Thomas Borrel. Du côté de Sherpa, on assure également que la coïncidence n’est pas calculée. « Ce que cette plainte veut aussi montrer aux nouveaux élus, c’est l’importance de la loi sur le devoir de vigilance », insiste Marie-Laure Guislain, de Sherpa. Quelques semaines seulement après son arrivée à l’Élysée, Emmanuel Macron est désormais prévenu : les plaies laissées béantes en France par le génocide des Tutsis au Rwanda ne sont pas encore refermées.

          Automatic Quantification of Tumour Hypoxia From Multi-Modal Microscopy Images Using Weakly-Supervised Learning Methods   
In recently published clinical trial results, hypoxia-modified therapies have shown to provide more positive outcomes to cancer patients, compared with standard cancer treatments. The development and validation of these hypoxia-modified therapies depend on an effective way of measuring tumor hypoxia, but a standardized measurement is currently unavailable in clinical practice. Different types of manual measurements have been proposed in clinical research, but in this paper we focus on a recently published approach that quantifies the number and proportion of hypoxic regions using high resolution (immuno-)fluorescence (IF) and hematoxylin and eosin (HE) stained images of a histological specimen of a tumor. We introduce new machine learning-based methodologies to automate this measurement, where the main challenge is the fact that the clinical annotations available for training the proposed methodologies consist of the total number of normoxic, chronically hypoxic, and acutely hypoxic regions without any indication of their location in the image. Therefore, this represents a weakly-supervised structured output classification problem, where training is based on a high-order loss function formed by the norm of the difference between the manual and estimated annotations mentioned above. We propose four methodologies to solve this problem: 1) a naive method that uses a majority classifier applied on the nodes of a fixed grid placed over the input images; 2) a baseline method based on a structured output learning formulation that relies on a fixed grid placed over the input images; 3) an extension to this baseline based on a latent structured output learning formulation that uses a graph that is flexible in terms of the amount and positions of nodes; and 4) a pixel-wise labeling based on a fully-convolutional neural network. Using a data set of 89 weakly annotated pairs of IF and HE images from eight tumors, we show that the quantitativ- results of methods (3) and (4) above are equally competitive and superior to the naive (1) and baseline (2) methods. All proposed methodologies show high correlation values with respect to the clinical annotations.

          Structured and Sparse Canonical Correlation Analysis as a Brain-Wide Multi-Modal Data Fusion Approach   
Multi-modal data fusion has recently emerged as a comprehensive neuroimaging analysis approach, which usually uses canonical correlation analysis (CCA). However, the current CCA-based fusion approaches face problems like high-dimensionality, multi-collinearity, unimodal feature selection, asymmetry, and loss of spatial information in reshaping the imaging data into vectors. This paper proposes a structured and sparse CCA (ssCCA) technique as a novel CCA method to overcome the above problems. To investigate the performance of the proposed algorithm, we have compared three data fusion techniques: standard CCA, regularized CCA, and ssCCA, and evaluated their ability to detect multi-modal data associations. We have used simulations to compare the performance of these approaches and probe the effects of non-negativity constraint, the dimensionality of features, sample size, and noise power. The results demonstrate that ssCCA outperforms the existing standard and regularized CCA-based fusion approaches. We have also applied the methods to real functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and structural MRI data of Alzheimer’s disease (AD) patients (n = 34) and healthy control (HC) subjects (n = 42) from the ADNI database. The results illustrate that the proposed unsupervised technique differentiates the transition pattern between the subject-course of AD patients and HC subjects with a p-value of less than $1\times 10^{\mathrm {\mathbf {-6}}}$ . Furthermore, we have depicted the brain mapping of functional areas that are most correlated with the anatomical changes in AD patients relative to HC subjects.
          Deep Learning Segmentation of Optical Microscopy Images Improves 3-D Neuron Reconstruction   
Digital reconstruction, or tracing, of 3-D neuron structure from microscopy images is a critical step toward reversing engineering the wiring and anatomy of a brain. Despite a number of prior attempts, this task remains very challenging, especially when images are contaminated by noises or have discontinued segments of neurite patterns. An approach for addressing such problems is to identify the locations of neuronal voxels using image segmentation methods, prior to applying tracing or reconstruction techniques. This preprocessing step is expected to remove noises in the data, thereby leading to improved reconstruction results. In this paper, we proposed to use 3-D convolutional neural networks (CNNs) for segmenting the neuronal microscopy images. Specifically, we designed a novel CNN architecture, that takes volumetric images as the inputs and their voxel-wise segmentation maps as the outputs. The developed architecture allows us to train and predict using large microscopy images in an end-to-end manner. We evaluated the performance of our model on a variety of challenging 3-D microscopy images from different organisms. Results showed that the proposed methods improved the tracing performance significantly when combined with different reconstruction algorithms.
          Detection and Localization of Robotic Tools in Robot-Assisted Surgery Videos Using Deep Neural Networks for Region Proposal and Detection   
Video understanding of robot-assisted surgery (RAS) videos is an active research area. Modeling the gestures and skill level of surgeons presents an interesting problem. The insights drawn may be applied in effective skill acquisition, objective skill assessment, real-time feedback, and human–robot collaborative surgeries. We propose a solution to the tool detection and localization open problem in RAS video understanding, using a strictly computer vision approach and the recent advances of deep learning. We propose an architecture using multimodal convolutional neural networks for fast detection and localization of tools in RAS videos. To the best of our knowledge, this approach will be the first to incorporate deep neural networks for tool detection and localization in RAS videos. Our architecture applies a region proposal network (RPN) and a multimodal two stream convolutional network for object detection to jointly predict objectness and localization on a fusion of image and temporal motion cues. Our results with an average precision of 91% and a mean computation time of 0.1 s per test frame detection indicate that our study is superior to conventionally used methods for medical imaging while also emphasizing the benefits of using RPN for precision and efficiency. We also introduce a new data set, ATLAS Dione, for RAS video understanding. Our data set provides video data of ten surgeons from Roswell Park Cancer Institute, Buffalo, NY, USA, performing six different surgical tasks on the daVinci Surgical System (dVSS) with annotations of robotic tools per frame.
          Back-Projection Cortical Potential Imaging: Theory and Results   
Electroencephalography (EEG) is the single brain monitoring technique that is non-invasive, portable, passive, exhibits high-temporal resolution, and gives a directmeasurement of the scalp electrical potential. Amajor disadvantage of the EEG is its low-spatial resolution, which is the result of the low-conductive skull that “smears” the currents coming from within the brain. Recording brain activity with both high temporal and spatial resolution is crucial for the localization of confined brain activations and the study of brainmechanismfunctionality, whichis then followed by diagnosis of brain-related diseases. In this paper, a new cortical potential imaging (CPI) method is presented. The new method gives an estimation of the electrical activity on the cortex surface and thus removes the “smearing effect” caused by the skull. The scalp potentials are back-projected CPI (BP-CPI) onto the cortex surface by building a well-posed problem to the Laplace equation that is solved by means of the finite elements method on a realistic head model. A unique solution to the CPI problem is obtained by introducing a cortical normal current estimation technique. The technique is based on the same mechanism used in the well-known surface Laplacian calculation, followed by a scalp-cortex back-projection routine. The BP-CPI passed four stages of validation, including validation on spherical and realistic head models, probabilistic analysis (Monte Carlo simulation), and noise sensitivity tests. In addition, the BP-CPI was compared with the minimum norm estimate CPI approach and found superior for multi-source cortical potential distributions with very good estimation results (CC >0.97) on a realistic head model in the regions of interest, for two representative cases. The BP-CPI can be easily incorporated in different monitoring tools and help researchers by maintaining an accurate estimati- n for the cortical potential of ongoing or event-related potentials in order to have better neurological inferences from the EEG.

«Пишите свет, а не ландшафт. Такой подход может показаться сложным, но я объясню, как это сделать. Когда вы смотрите на ландшафт, против низко стоящего солнца, все вокруг оживает. Даже самый невзрачный вид сверкает и искрится полный жизни и энергии. Но обернитесь и вы увидите мертвый и скучный пейзаж. Ищите в первую очередь свет, а потом — вид»

          Hundreds of royal-watchers line the streets in Ontario to meet Prince Charles, Camilla   

WELLINGTON, ONT.—Hundreds of royal-watchers lined the streets of a picturesque, eastern Ontario village Friday to try and get a glimpse of the Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall on the second day of their packed Canadian tour.

Patricia Lang, a 79-year-old from Belleville, Ont. decked out in a Canada Day outfit, waited for the couple with her friend Marge Foster.

“We are thrilled to be here,” Lang said. “They’re our heritage.”

Charles and Camilla also weaved their way into Wellington’s local farmer’s market, where Brittany Roblin and her husband were set up with a maple syrup display along with their three-month-old daughter, Adalynn. The baby was sporting a pink tutu.

“It was a really surreal moment,” Roblin said. “A really once in a lifetime opportunity ... to come to a small town and see how our farm-to-table is.”

The Prince of Wales and Duchess of Cornwall began their day Friday at a soggy CFB Trenton, where they greeted members of the military and honoured soldiers who died in Afghanistan.

Charles observed a search and rescue demonstration while Camilla attended a separate event where she met with the Queen’s Own Rifles; she is Colonel-in-Chief of the regiment.

The couple then took part in a solemn commemoration service and wreath laying at the Afghanistan Repatriation Memorial located near the base.

Between 2001 and 2014, 158 members of the Canadian Armed Forces lost their lives in Afghanistan.

The couple also stopped to meet with local residents who lined a path near the memorial, where many were holding small Canadian flags in their hands.

Mackenzie Stribling came to meet the royals with her three kids.

“I don’t even think I have words for it,” she said in an interview. “It’s something I never thought I would do, especially with my children.”

Patricia Hunt presented Camilla with a bouquet of flowers including daisies, adding she wished her mother was alive to witness the moment.

“I’m very excited to be here,” she said.

Later Friday, Charles and Camilla stopped in at Norman Hardie Winery located in Prince Edward County.

Owner Norman Hardie said it was an unbelievable moment.

“It is an honour,” he said. “I said to my staff in a million years when we bought this, if you told me the royals were going to come, I’d tell you to fly a kite ... It is amazing.”

Camilla also stopped to meet Edward Rose, a 92-year-old who has lived in Canada since the late 1950s and said he was a prisoner of war with her father.

“The connection is we were both in prison together ... in 1944,” he said in an interview. “I was captured.”

Gov. Gen. David Johnston also announced Friday the Prince of Wales has been appointed to the extraordinary companion category of the Order of Canada in recognition of his support for Canadian charitable activities and for the men and women in the Canadian Armed Forces.

Charles is expected to receive the honour Saturday morning at Rideau Hall.

In Ottawa, the couple are to attend Canada Day celebrations Saturday on Parliament Hill to mark the 150th anniversary of Confederation; Charles is expected to deliver remarks.

They will stop in at the Canadian Museum of History in Gatineau, Que. where they’ll meet with Canadians and cut a ribbon to mark the opening of Canadian History Hall.

Prince Charles is also to inspect a ceremonial guard at the Peacekeeping Monument and visit the newly renovated and re-opened National Arts Centre.

Charles is also scheduled to stop at Shopify — a highly successful Ottawa-based e-commerce company — where he is to meet with Bachelor of Science students and female entrepreneurs launching businesses.

The couple will then attend the inauguration of the Queen’s entrance at Rideau Hall before officially completing their Royal tour and departing for the U.K. on a Canadian Forces Airbus.


          Health official calls on neuroscience to fight mental illness    

New clues to autism, schizophrenia emerge from studies of synapses

Context
dendritic spines

Branches called dendrites extending from a nerve cell (green) receive messages from other neurons at tiny protrusions called dendritic spines. A faulty protein in the spines may be related to a wide range of mental disorders.

SAN DIEGO — Society’s record for protecting public health has been pretty good in the developed world, not so much in developing countries. That disparity has long been recognized.

But there’s another disparity in society’s approach to public health — the divide between attention to traditional diseases and the resources devoted to mental disorders.

“When it comes to mental health, all countries are developing countries,” says Shekhar Saxena, director of the World Health Organization’s department of Mental Health and Substance Abuse. Despite a breadth of scope and depth of impact exceeding that of many more highly publicized diseases, mental illness has long been regarded as a second-class medical concern. And modern medicine’s success at diagnosing, treating and curing many other diseases has not been duplicated for major mental disorders.

Saxena thinks that neuroscience research can help. He sees an opportunity for progress through increased interdisciplinary collaboration between neuroscience and mental health researchers.

“The collaboration seems to be improving, but much more is needed and not only in a few countries, but all countries,” he said November 12 at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience.

By almost any measure, mental health disorders impose an enormous societal burden. Worldwide, direct and indirect costs of mental disorders exceed $2.5 trillion yearly, Saxena said — projected to reach $6 trillion by 2030. Mental illnesses also disable and kill in large numbers: Global suicides per year total over 800,000. “Indeed, it is a hidden epidemic,” Saxena said. That’s more deaths than from breast cancer and probably more from malaria, according to a new comprehensive analysis of global mortality.

Mental illnesses encompass a wide range of disorders, from autism and Alzheimer’s disease to substance abuse and schizophrenia. Saxena acknowledged that there have been advances in the scientific understanding of these diseases, but not nearly enough. No easily used diagnostic test is available for most of them. And no new class of drugs for treating major mental disorders has appeared in the last 20 years, with the possible exception of dementia.

“We need increased investment in research, increased public, private and philanthropic investments,” Saxena said. “We need increased connection of research with public health gains.”

He called on the community of neuroscientists to establish a “grand challenge” to researchers to address these concerns.

“There have been many grand challenges in neurosciences — perhaps we need one for finding out mental health interventions,” he said.

Many neuroscientists are, of course, aware of the important link between their research and mental health. Some progress is being made. One promising avenue of work focuses on synapses, the junctures through which nerve cells in the brain communicate. Typically synapses form where axons, the long neuronal extensions that transmit signals, connect with dendrites, the neurons’ message-receiving branches. Most of the axon-dendrite connections occur at small growths called dendritic spines that protrude from the dendrite surface.

Several sessions at the neuroscience meeting described new work showing ways in which dendritic spines may be involved in mental disorders. One session focused on the protein actin, a prime structural component of the spines.

Actin activity depends on a complicated chain of chemical reactions inside a cell. In mice, blocking a key link in that chain reduces the number of spines in the front part of the brain, Scott Soderling of Duke University School of Medicine reported. Those mice then exhibited symptoms reminiscent of schizophrenia in people.

It seems that losing spines in the frontal cortex alters nerve cell connections there; with spine shortages, some axons link directly to the dendrite shaft. Bypassing spines, which play a filtering role, can intensify signals sent to the ventral tegmental area, which in turn may send signals that increase production of the chemical messenger dopamine in another brain region, the striatum. “We think that this is actually what is driving the elevated dopamine levels” in disorders such as schizophrenia, Soderling said.

Some antipsychotic drugs (known as neuroleptics) for treating schizophrenia work by blocking sites of dopamine action in the striatum. But such drugs do nothing about the loss of spines that initiated the problem.

“These neuroleptics largely treat these symptoms, but they’re not a cure,” Soderling said. “We think that this is good evidence … for the idea that these drugs are treating a downstream consequence of a primary insult that’s occurring elsewhere in the brain.”

This insight from neuroscience — that antipsychotics treat downstream symptoms, not the problem at its source — may help the search for better treatments.

Soderling suggests that many other mental disorders may have their roots in problems with actin in dendritic spines. Another speaker at the neuroscience meeting, Haruo Kasai of the University of Tokyo, emphasized how fluctuations in the numbers of spines, related to actin activity, could play a role in autism.

Such results from neuroscience should be of great value to fighting mental disorders. But science alone won’t enable the discovery of effective treatments without a broader scope of scientific investigation of mental illness as a global problem. Too much of research to date focuses on too small a portion of the worldwide population. As Saxena noted, more than 90 percent of scientific studies on mental illness are from — and about — high-income countries.

“We are ignoring a very large number of people living in this world,” he said. “And this can be, and is, a real impediment to science. If we don’t know what is happening in the brains of the majority of the people living in this world, can we really advance science in the best possible manner? Can we still say that we know the human brain? And at least my answer would be: No.”

          Tom Wolfe’s denial of language evolution stumbles over his own words    

New book attacking Darwin, Chomsky substitutes smugness for substance

Context
two babies chatting

Babies are born with the ability to learn and use language, a feature of human behavior that, like other behavioral capabilities, emerged from eons of biological evolution — a scientific explanation that author Tom Wolfe rejects in his new book, The Kingdom of Speech

Language is a tricky thing to write about. You’re using it while dissecting it. That sort of recursion can trip you up. As a philosopher friend of mine once said, a zoologist studying tigers, while riding on the back of a tiger, should be very careful.

Of all the writers who’ve ever taken on the task of writing about language, nobody of any consequence has ever tripped himself up quite so much as Tom Wolfe. His new book, The Kingdom of Speech, has been widely denigrated (deservedly) by scientists who have encountered it. Wolfe has taken it upon himself to explain various aspects of science — having to do with biological evolution, linguistics, psychology and cognitive neuroscience — to scientists, in the process disparaging titans in their fields such as Charles Darwin and Noam Chomsky. It’s kind of like Brad Pitt or Angelina Jolie trashing George Washington and Abraham Lincoln. Wolfe pontificates about language without realizing that he’s riding on the back of a linguistic tiger.

It’s difficult to criticize him, though, without lapsing into the same sort of abominable adhominemism with which he assaults Darwin and Chomsky. It’s not enough just to assert disagreement with Darwin’s views on how language evolves or Chomsky’s theory that evolution endowed all human babies with a built-in hardwired “universal grammar.” Wolfe attacks their character.

He presents Chomsky as a demon, a bully, a knave. When criticizing another’s research, Chomsky “pulls out a boning knife and goes to work,” Wolfe writes; he refers to Chomsky’s “audacity” and accuses him of “double talk.” He calls him “an angry god raining fire and brimstone.” He lambastes Chomsky for attacking his critics as liars, charlatans and frauds. In short, Wolfe attacks Chomsky for using against others the same linguistic strategy that Wolfe uses against Chomsky. Riding on a tiger.

Wolfe gives the impression of being jealous of Chomsky’s fame, which seems odd for a writer so famous himself. As for Darwin, Wolfe presents the greatest biologist in history as a petty thief who stole credit for the theory of evolution by natural selection from Alfred Russell Wallace, who was (Wolfe alleges) screwed over by the British gentlemen’s club conspirators who rigged the system to give Darwin credit for priority. And then Wolfe ridicules Darwin for reporting observations on the behavior of his dog.

But the poverty of Wolfe’s intellectual rhetoric does not cement the case against him. Just as belittling Darwin and Chomsky personally does not really rebut their science, condemning Wolfe’s rhetorical juvenility does not confront the substance of his thesis — that humans invented speech (and subsequent forms of language derived from it) — and that evolution had nothing to do with it. And that speech, and speech virtually alone, makes humans superior to other animals.

Somehow Wolfe manages to claim that he and he alone has figured out what no one else (at least, “no licensed savant”) ever thought of, that speech is the “cardinal distinction between man and animal.” It did not evolve. “Man, man unaided, created language,” Wolfe says. Language is a system of mnemonics, based on sounds that represent meaning, enabling people to remember, think and plan. And humans invented that system. Yes, invented it!!! (That’s how Wolfe writes: his rhetoric would collapse if denied the use of italics and exclamation points.) In any case, the question is not whether Wolfe dismisses Darwin and Chomsky unfairly, but rather whether he marshals sufficient factual evidence to support his central claim.

But facts are not Wolfe’s strong suit. On page 5, for instance, he announces that Watson and Crick discovered DNA. How unfair to Friedrich Mieschler, who discovered the molecule deoxyribonucleic acid in 1869. Watson and Crick discovered its double helix structure. Given such a weak grasp of such an elementary fact, Wolfe’s subsequent assertions on subtle points of evolutionary theory warrant suspicion.

There’s more. In one of his book’s most tweeted passages, he asserts that evolution fails all the tests of what makes “science”:

“Had anyone observed the phenomenon…? Could other scientists replicate it? Could any of them come up with a set of facts that, if true, would contradict the theory (Karl Popper’s ‘falsifiability’ test)? Could scientists make predictions based on it? Did it illuminate hitherto unknown or baffling areas of science?”
To which questions Wolfe answers “no … no … no … no … and no.” But to which any long-time reader of Science News would have responded “yes, yes, yes, yes and yes” (as would any knowledgeable scientist, as biologist Jerry Coyne, among others, has pointed out).

Wolfe’s citing of Popper is especially lame; although in early writings Popper criticized natural selection, in his later years he assented that natural selection could be posed in testable terms (he even thought that it failed the test under certain circumstances).

Nonetheless it is true that ideas about the evolutionary origin of language are difficult to test. Wolfe, in fact, anchors his argument with two recent papers (2014), each with Chomsky as a coauthor, asserting that “the most fundamental questions about the origins and evolution of our linguistic capacity remain as mysterious as ever.” Evidence on this issue is either “inconclusive or irrelevant,” Chomsky and colleagues wrote in Frontiers in Psychology. Evidence of Neandertal ability to produce speech does not help trace the beginnings of language, he and collaborators wrote in PLOS Biology. Speech ability “is undoubtedly a necessary condition for the expression of vocally externalized language,” but “is not a sufficient one, and … is evidently no silver bullet for determining when human language originated.”

Others would disagree on how well the evidence illuminates language’s origins, just as some experts in linguistics have disagreements with Chomsky on many other points. But even if you acknowledge a lack of “conclusive” evidence, that’s not the same thing as saying there is “no evidence” — as Wolfe repeatedly alleges.

Of course, both papers clearly state that language did, in fact, evolve — it’s just that science can not yet say exactly how. And it’s true that the origin of speech is among the most stubborn of mysteries. So are the origin of the universe, the origin of life and the origin of baseball. Science has not yet fully understood the causes of Alzheimer’s disease, either (and certainly has found no cure); the logical conclusion is not that man just decided to get Alzheimer’s disease. Research continues on the premise that its biological basis might yet be discovered.

Boiled down to its essentials, Wolfe’s case amounts to a fairly sparse syllogism: Science has not been able to establish how human language originated and evolved. Therefore, it did not evolve. And furthermore, I (Wolfe) know how it originated. Humans invented it.

Wolfe apparently doesn’t seem to care that his major premise is based on two papers that assert that language did in fact evolve. Or that his argument against language evolution hinges on a lack of testable evidence, while he declares that he knows how language originated — without any testable evidence. Tigers.

And Wolfe certainly missed the irony of one sentence in the paper in PLOS Biology he cites. “Evolutionary analysis of language is often plagued by popular, naïve, or antiquated conceptions of how evolution proceeds,” Chomsky and collaborators wrote. As in Wolfe’s book.

          'Discussões sobre o uso da cannabis envolvem posições ideológicas extremadas', avalia especialista da USP   

Em maio deste ano, a Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (Anvisa) incluiu a Cannabis sativa, nome científico da maconha, em sua relação de plantas medicinais. Apesar de a medida não alterar as regras para importação de medicamentos com canabidiol (CBD) e outros extratos da maconha e não permitir o cultivo da cannabis como planta medicinal, especialistas acreditam que se trata de um passo importante para a desmitificação do uso de extratos da planta em tratamento médicos.

Esse uso será tema da conferência Cannabis sativa: de produto psicoativo a medicamento regulado, que ocorre no dia 21 de julho, a partir das 10h30, em local a ser definido, como parte da programação da 69ª Reunião da Sociedade Brasileira para o Progresso da Ciência (SBPC).

Arquivo pessoal
Foto%20nova%20do%20m%E9dico.png O Portal UFMG conversou com o professor Antônio Waldo Zuardi, do Departamento de Neurologia, Psiquiatria e Psicologia Médica da Faculdade de Medicina de Ribeirão Preto da Universidade de São Paulo (USP). Especialista em pesquisas que desvendam o potencial terapêutico da maconha, o professor vai apresentar as evidências científicas dos efeitos produzidos pelo uso recreativo crônico da cannabis e descrever os possíveis efeitos terapêuticos de componentes da planta.

Como este tema será trazido à reunião da SBPC?
Comecei a estudar o canabidiol durante minha tese de doutorado, defendida em 1980. Já existem vários grupos estudando o CBD, mas as discussões sobre a cannabis muitas vezes envolvem posições ideológicas extremadas, carentes de suporte científico. A apresentação das evidências científicas disponíveis na reunião da SBPC vai contribuir para melhorar essa discussão.

Quais benefícios a regulação da Cannabis sativa como medicamento poderia trazer para a sociedade?
O que deveria ser regulado como medicamento são os canabinoides e não a planta. Com os canabinoides isolados, poderemos ter um controle adequado de dose dos princípios ativos, o que é fundamental para a elaboração dos medicamentos.

O uso de extratos da Cannabis sativa para a produção de medicamentos já ocorre em vários países do mundo. O Brasil está atrasado com relação à legalização deste uso?
O principal componente psicoativo da maconha, o THC, foi registrado como medicamento nos Estados Unidos em 1981, para náusea e vômito em pacientes com câncer, submetidos à quimioterapia, e para a anorexia na aids e no câncer. Desde 2005, uma mistura do THC com o canabidiol, outro componente da maconha, tem sido liberada em mais de 20 países para a espasticidade da esclerose múltipla e para dores neuropáticas. Esse último uso foi recentemente autorizado pela Anvisa, o que é um grande avanço para o Brasil.

Para quais doenças o canabidiol já teve a sua eficácia comprovada?
Embora os efeitos terapêuticos do canabidiol venham sendo estudados para um amplo espectro de doenças, os ensaios clínicos controlados comprovando essas ações em pacientes envolvem, até o momento, apenas a epilepsia resistente, a esquizofrenia e a Doença de Parkinson.

O que diferencia a Cannabis sativa utilizada como produto psicoativo daquela que serve para a produção de medicamentos? Por que o uso de medicamentos com o canabidiol não produz os mesmos efeitos que o uso recreativo psicoativo?
Como medicamento, o ideal é utilizar os componentes isolados, uma vez que a planta possui mais de 80 canabinoides e alguns deles apresentam efeitos opostos, como é o caso do THC e do CBD. Os efeitos da planta dependem da concentração relativa desses canabinoides. Assim, uma amostra rica em THC vai produzir um efeito muito diferente da produzida por uma amostra rica em CBD. A concentração relativa desses canabinoides vai depender da parte da planta que está sendo fumada (flores, folhas ou galhos), do solo onde essa planta foi cultivada, entre outras variáveis. Dessa forma, os efeitos da maconha obtida na rua são muito pouco previsíveis, e ela não deve ser usada com finalidade terapêutica.

Bananas: Benefícios para a Saúde, Riscos & Fatos de Nutrição

As bananas estão entre as frutas mais consumidas no planeta de acordo com o Departamento de Agricultura dos EUA, é a fruta preferida dos americanos.

Curvilíneos, esses frutos amarelos são ricos em "potássio e pectina, uma forma de fibra," disse Laura Flores, uma nutricionista com base em San Diego.

Eles também podem ser uma boa maneira de obter magnésio e vitaminas C e B6.

"Todos os tipos de bananas são ricas em antioxidantes, que podem fornecer proteção contra os radicais livres, que podemos entrar em contato todos os dias, a partir da luz solar pela a loção que você colocar na sua pele," acrescentou Flores.

Flores relatou uma ampla variedade de benefícios de saúde associados com a fruta.

"Bananas são conhecidas por reduzir o inchaço, proteger contra o desenvolvimento de diabetes tipo 2, ajudar na perda de peso, fortalecer o sistema nervoso.

Além de ajudar com a produção de células brancas do sangue, devido ao elevado nível de vitamina B6 que as bananas contêm," ela disse a ciência de viver.

Aqui estão os fatores de nutrição das bananas, de acordo com a U.S. Administração de Comida e Drogas, que regulamenta a rotulagem de alimentos através da rotulagem nacional e a lei da educação:

>>> Benefícios para a Saúde

Saúde do Coração

As bananas são boas para o coração. Elas possuem potássio, um eletrólito mineral que mantém a eletricidade por todo seu corpo, necessário para manter seu coração batendo.

O elevado teor de potássio das bananas e teor baixo de sódio podem também ajudar a proteger seu sistema cardiovascular contra alta pressão de sangue.

 

>>> Depressão e Humor

As bananas podem ser úteis na superação de depressão "devido aos altos níveis de triptofano, que o corpo converte em serotonina, neurotransmissor do cérebro de elevação de humor" disse Flores.

Além disso, a vitamina B6 pode ajudá-lo a dormir bem, e o magnésio ajuda a relaxar os músculos.

Digestão e Perda de Peso

A banana prata é ricas em fibras, que podem ajudar a mantê-lo regular.

Uma banana pode fornecer quase 10% da sua necessidade diária de fibras.

A vitamina B6 também pode ajudar a proteger contra a diabetes tipo 2 e ajuda na perda de peso, de acordo com Flores.

Em geral, as bananas são importantes para a perda de peso, porque elas tem um sabor doce e não engordam, o que ajuda a evitar ânsias.
Elas também ajudam a manter os níveis de açúcar no sangue durante exercícios.

 

>>> Visão

Cenouras podem receber toda a glória por ajudar seus olhos, mas as bananas fazem a sua parte também.

Os frutos contêm uma quantidade significativa de vitamina A, que é essencial para proteger os olhos, mantendo a visão normal, além de melhorar a visão durante a noite, de acordo com o Instituto Nacional do Coração.

A vitamina contém compostos que preservam as membranas que circundam os olhos e são um elemento com proteínas que trazem luz para suas córneas.

Como outras frutas, as bananas podem ajudar a prevenir a degeneração macular, uma doença incurável, que embaça a visão central.

Ossos

As bananas podem não transbordar cálcio, mas eles são ainda úteis para manter os ossos fortes.

De acordo com um artigo de 2009, do jornal de Fisiologia e bioquímica, as bananas contêm uma abundância de frutooligossacarídeos.

Estas são carboidratos que incentivam os probióticos digestivo-amigável e reforçam a capacidade do organismo de absorver cálcio.

Câncer

Algumas evidências sugerem que o consumo moderado de bananas pode ser protetora contra o câncer de rim.

Um estudo sueco de 2005 descobriu que mulheres que comiam mais de 75 porções de frutas e legumes eliminaram seu risco de câncer de rim em 40%, e que as bananas foram especialmente eficazes.

Mulheres que comem dieta da banana de quatro a seis por semana diminuem pela metade o risco de desenvolver câncer de rim.

As bananas podem ser úteis na prevenção de câncer de rim por causa de seus altos níveis de compostos fenólicos antioxidantes.

>>> Riscos para a Saúde

Comido com moderação, não há nenhum efeito colateral significativo associados a comer bananas.

No entanto, comer as frutas em excesso pode provocar dores de cabeça e sonolência, disse Flores.

Ela disse que essas dores de cabeça são causados por eles, "os aminoácidos da banana que dilatam os vasos sanguíneos".

As bananas maduras contêm mais destes ácidos aminados do que as outras bananas.

"Bananas podem também contribuir para a sonolência, quando ingeridas em excesso devido à quantidade elevada de triptofano encontrado nelas," ela disse.

Magnésio também relaxa os músculos, às vezes um benefício, às vezes um risco.

As bananas são frutas açucaradas, então comer demais e não manter práticas de higiene dentária adequada pode levar à deterioração de dente.

Também não contêm bastante gordura ou proteína para ser uma refeição saudável por conta própria, ou um lanche pós-treino eficaz.

Comer bananas torna-se significativamente arriscado somente se você comer demais.

O USDA recomenda que adultos comam cerca de duas xícaras de frutas por dia, ou cerca de duas bananas.

Se você comer dúzias de bananas todos os dias, pode haver um risco de alto teor de vitamina e minerais.

O Centro de Medicina da Universidade de Maryland relatou que o consumo excessivo de potássio pode levar a hipercalemia, que é caracterizada por fraqueza muscular, paralisia temporária e um batimento cardíaco irregular.

E pode ter consequências graves, mas você teria que comer cerca de 43 bananas em um curto período de tempo para que qualquer sintomas de hipercalemia ocorra.

Consumir mais de 500 miligramas de vitamina B6 diariamente possivelmente pode levar a danos nos nervos nos braços e pernas.

Você teria que comer milhares de bananas para chegar ao nível de vitamina B6.

 

Cascas de Banana: Comestíveis ou Venenosas?

Acontece que o maior risco de uma casca de banana pode realmente estar em escorregar nela.

Cascas de banana não são venenosas.

Na verdade, elas são comestíveis e repletas de nutrientes. "Casca de banana é comida em muitas partes do mundo, embora não seja muito comum no Ocidente," disse Flores.

"Ela contém quantidades elevadas de vitamina B6 e B12, bem como magnésio e potássio.

Ela também contém algumas fibras e proteína.

" De acordo com um artigo do jornal de bioquímica aplicada e biotecnologia de 2011, cascas de banana também tem "vários compostos bioativos como polifenóis, carotenoides e outros".

É importante lavar cuidadosamente uma casca de banana antes de comê-la devido as pesticidas que podem ser pulverizadas em pomares de banana.

Cascas de banana são geralmente servidas cozidas ou fritas, embora elas podem ser comidas cruas ou batidas em um liquidificador com outras frutas.

Elas não são tão doces como a banana. As cascas serão mais doces do que as bananas verdes.

 

>>> Fatos da Banana

As bananas podem ter sido o primeiro fruto cultivado do mundo.

Arqueólogos encontraram evidências de cultivo de banana na Nova Guiné, desde 8000 A.C.

As bananas são produzidas principalmente em áreas tropicais e subtropicais da África, Ásia e das Américas, bem como as ilhas Canárias e Austrália.

As bananas não crescem em árvores.

A bananeira é classificada como uma erva perene arborescente de (tipo de árvore), e a banana em si é considerada uma baga.

O nome correto para um cacho de bananas é uma mão; uma única banana é um dedo.

Quase todas as bananas vendidas nas lojas são clonadas de apenas uma variedade, a planta de banana Cavendish, originalmente nativa do sudeste da Ásia.

O Cavendish substituiu o Gros Michel, depois que essa variedade foi exterminada pelo fungo.

O Gros Michel supostamente era maior, tinha uma vida útil mais longa e um sabor melhor.

O Cavendish pode enfrentar o mesmo destino que o Gros Michel dentro dos próximos 20 anos, dizem os botânicos.

As bananas são também chamadas de plátanos.

Mas em geral, "banana" refere-se a forma mais doce da fruta, que muitas vezes é comida cru, enquanto "banana" refere-se a uma fruta que muitas vezes é cozida antes de comer.

Existem 50 espécies reconhecidas de banana.

A dieta da banana com aveia selvagens crescem em todo o Sudeste Asiático, mas não são comestíveis para os seres humanos, pois são cravejados com sementes duras.

A grande maioria das bananas cultivadas hoje é para consumo por agricultores ou a comunidade local.

Apenas 15% da produção global do fruto é cultivado para a exportação.

A Índia é a maior produtora de bananas no mundo, respondendo por 23% da total da produção de bananas, embora a maioria dos plátanos indianos é para uso doméstico.

Em 1923, a partitura de uma música popular intitulada "Sim, nós temos Bananas!" vendeu mais de mil cópias por dia

A versão de Harry Belafonte da canção "barco Banana" foi lançado no primeiro álbum que vendeu mais de 1 milhão de cópias.

          Fisioterapia e amputação transtibial   


Amputação transtibial é definida como a retirada total ou parcial de um membro. Esse tipo de amputação, apesar de acarretar transtornos físicos e psicológicos ao paciente, é considerado como sendo de bom nível posicional, principalmente, para reabilitação e indicação de próteses.

 A técnica ortopédica evoluiu muito e desenvolveram-se componentes pré-fabricados e padronizados, possibilitando melhor reabilitação funcional com necessidade de participação efetiva do fisioterapeuta.

Dentre os níveis de amputação, a mais frequente é a transtibial, definida como a retirada total ou parcial de um membro nesta região, causando limitação funcional ao indivíduo2,3. Embora considerada como de bom prognóstico para uso de prótese, o amputado pode apresentar dificuldades importantes para locomoção, transferência e trocas posturais, e ainda, presença de dor no coto ou fantasma, baixa auto-estima, medo e depressão4

O coto é denominado membro residual, sendo considerado um novo membro, responsável pelo controle da prótese durante o ortostatismo e deambulação. É comum ocorrer algumas complicações após amputação, como deformidade em flexão, irregularidades ósseas, excesso de partes moles, cicatrização inadequada, neuromas dolorosos, complicações cutâneas ou comprometimento vascular, o que pode levar à incapacidade e redução nos níveis de qualidade de vida.

Assim, a partir da descrição dos aspectos evolutivos do uso de próteses em conjunto com os comprometimentos decorrentes da amputação e, definida a importância do processo de reabilitação aos envolvidos com agravos desta natureza, definiu-se como objetivo do presente estudo, o levantamento de informações sobre a amputação transtibial e a realização de descrições sobre
o perfil do paciente submetido à cirurgia em questão, assim como a intervenção do fisioterapeuta.

Causas e conseqüências das amputações

Estudos apontam a tendência de ocorrência de amputações devido, principalmente às insuficiências arteriais periféricas, complicações do diabetes mellitus, infecções severas, traumas, neoplasias e deformidades congênitas

A maior frequência de amputação transtibial ocorre na faixa etária de 50 a 75 anos, com destaque para complicações vasculares geralmente em indivíduos acima de 50 anos e, em seguida, condições traumáticas observadas em adultos jovens, devido a maior exposição ao trabalho e trânsito. Em crianças, as causas mais comuns de amputação incluem as deformidades congênitas, condições traumáticas ou por tratamento de doença maligna. Em relação à variável sexo, estudos mostraram que o maior índice de amputação ocorre em homens, em média 75% dos casos.

Mudanças pós-amputação

Com a amputação o paciente sofre grande alteração do potencial funcional músculo esquelético e dificuldades na adaptação a uma condição incapacitante, pois o mesmo necessita fazer mudanças na sua vida, desde alterações sociais, econômicas e até familiares.

Após a amputação, o indivíduo, muitas vezes, tem dificuldade em aceitar psicologicamente o coto, pois a deficiência física altera sua imagem corporal. Para que a reintegração corporal seja produtiva e positiva ao paciente amputado, o mesmo deve aceitar sua perda física, condição necessária para integrar funções de um membro mecânico, como a prótese, com seus próprios músculos, conseguindo, assim, domínio de seus movimentos.

Nível de amputação e atenção pré-operatória

O nível determinado para amputação do membro deve ser o mais longo possível, de acordo com as possibilidades de cada caso, sendo considerado o mais distal desejado, ou seja, acima da transição músculo-tendínea do gastrocnêmio2. O coto deve apresentar boa mobilidade e circulação sanguínea, ser recoberto por
um bom coxim músculo adiposo e pele sadia e não apresentar dor, assim possibilitará uma adaptabilidade satisfatória às próteses.

Além disso, há a necessidade de atenção para diversos aspectos referentes a fatores físicos contidos na avaliação pré-operatória, que podem proporcionar complicações no processo de reabilitação, como nível de visão e audição, estado circulatório, controle da bexiga e intestino, doença cardio-pulmonar relacionada, força dos músculos do tronco, mobilidade da coluna e pelve, equilíbrio e postura geral, viabilidade do membro e condições da pele, condições físicas e sociais, expectativas, adequações necessárias no domicílio e rede de suporte
para cuidado. Quaisquer dessas alterações devem ser consideradas para formulação de planos de ação específicos para cada paciente.

Objetivos da fisioterapia


O fisioterapeuta desempenha papel fundamental quanto à reeducação funcional, acompanhando o paciente em todos os estágios do programa de reabilitação, fazendo parte de equipe multidisciplinar, supervisionando e tratando desde o estágio pré e pós-operatório, na educação de mobilidade pré e pós-protética e, se necessário, em cuidados de manutenção das funções músculo-esqueléticas,

Nesse sentido, a presença do fisioterapeuta é importante no processo dinâmico, criativo, progressivo, educativo e, objetiva a restauração ótima do indivíduo, sua reintegração à família, comunidade e sociedade.

O tratamento deverá ser iniciado de forma precoce para recuperação funcional, com objetivo de acelerar a protetização e o retorno às atividades8. De maneira específica, os objetivos visam cicatrização e redução de edema, manter ou aumentar força muscular de ambos os membros, transferências e cuidados no leito, prevenir contraturas articulares do membro residual ou qualquer membro, instrução nos cuidados do membro residual e deambulação com muletas10.

São vários os fatores que devem ser considerados para prescrição adequada de tratamento, como presença de múltiplas afecções, independência funcional, autonomia, idade avançada, etiologia e nível de amputação, tempo de evolução entre amputação e início da reabilitação. Devido a tais fatores, é fundamental um trabalho multidisciplinar, que vise o desenvolvimento e participação ativa do paciente no seu tratamento4

Condutas terapêuticas

A fisioterapia deve ser realizada logo após a amputação, atuando no posicionamento correto no leito, dessensibilização do coto, exercícios ativo-assistidos, ativo-livres e isométricos, uso de bandagens, exercícios de propriocepção, trabalho do membro contralateral e membros superiores e treino de marcha6. Tendo como objetivo a manutenção da amplitude de movimento,
aumento de força muscular, equilíbrio e adaptações da marcha de acordo com a possibilidade do paciente, envolvendo orientação e condutas de prevenção e reabilitação.

August 15, 2017

Book Description:

One failed marriage. Two jobs lost. Three maxed out credit cards. “Schex” Schexnaydre was a failure as a lawyer. Until three weeks ago, he had no clients and no cash -- no clients except for infamous toxic waste entrepreneur G.G. Guidry, who’s just been murdered, and no cash, except for  the  $4,452,737 Guidry had stashed with him for safekeeping.

When Schex’s estranged ex-wife, Taylor, is accused of Guidry’s murder, she pleads with Schex to defend her. He refuses, but the more he says no to Taylor, the deeper Schex gets dragged into the fall-out from Guidry’s nefarious schemes, ending up as the target of all those vying to claim Guidry’s millions for themselves.

          Hypokalemic myopathy “A Possible complication of clay eating   
Hypokalemic myopathy “A Possible complication of clay eating Moagi, Mantoa Elizabeth 1 BACKGROUND (geophagia/pica) Pica is a tendency to ingest nonnutritive substances eg. chalk, paper, wood, coal etc. The American Psychiatric Association in its diagnostic and statistical Manual defines Pica as persistent eating of non-nutritive substances that is inappropriate for developmental level, occurs outside culturally sanctioned practice and, if observed during the course of another mental disorder, is sufficiently severe to warrant independent attention. The term pica comes from the Latin word magpie- a bird known for its indiscriminating eating habits. The deliberate consumption of earth, soil or clay is known as geophagia which is the commonest form of pica. Hippocrates is credited with the oldest description of this ancient practice. An ancient Roman textbook, De Medicina, compiled by Celsus during the rein of Emperor Tiberius (13 – 37 AD), mentions earth eating as one of the reasons for bad skin colour. It is a practice that continues to exist in modern times, the full extent however, remains unrealized most probably due to underreporting. Geophagia has been practiced at some stage, virtually world wide eg. America (north & south), Asia, Australia, Britain, India, various parts of Africa. The epidemiology however, is still unknown due to the lack of studies in this regard. Thesis(M Med(Neurology))--University of Limpopo(Medunsa Campus),2009.

She listens to Alison's longer and longer story- when she thinks she got the cold, the meds she's taken, the headache which is now the worst she has ever had, the ER doctor (no help there) the confusion (I am really stressing the confusion). The doctor walks across the room, feels Alison's neck, asks her to move her neck and says "I am sending you to the hospital, I want you to have a lumbar puncture; it will give us a definitive answer. I think you have Meningitis."

We mention that we are supposed to leave for Disney with the vague hope we can still go and the doctor immediately squashes that hope.

"You are a very sick woman, with a very compromised immune system right now- you can't be thinking you are going to get on a plane and possibly be infected by other passengers or have them infect you. And Disney- that has be be the most germ filled place in the world. You'll get there and be so sick you'll be in bed, and what- your sister will have to show herself around? You are in no shape to go anywhere.

Viral or Bacterial- To make the story move along for you, my faithful reader, I will skip the fact that Alison has been lucky in her life and has had little contact with the ugly side of medical care and hospitals. I will overlook that she is very scared to have anyone mess with her spine. I won't talk about her resources that are very low and she needs to rest and she is so easily brought to tears now.

We drive 30 minutes out of our way (there are other hospitals closer to home but this is the one the doctor is associated with), have the test done (which is very painful for her) and meet in the lobby with Tony, her husband. Realizing how sick she is, he has called the travel agent to find out what we can do about the trip. We can postpone into 2016.

Alison is sobbing, she is so afraid and Disney gave her something to hold on to. Ultimately, we decide to postpone the trip of a lifetime and concentrate on getting her better (one of us could see this coming when she stepped off the train Sunday night, to another of us it is a big surprise. She just doesn't realize how sick she is).

Around 4 o'clock, I drive her home on a major highway and two things happen simultaneously 5 minutes from home, we run out of gas ( a story for another day) and we get a call from the neurologist. 

She says she is surprised the hospital released Alison. She says since we are so close to home we should go there, get Alison some dinner and then Alison should pack a bag and go back up to the hospital because she is being admitted.

"You have Meningitis... now we have to determine whether it is Viral- serious but treatable or Bacterial- contagious and possible deadly and harder to treat."  

 

          Blogging from A to Z April Challenge 2016 - Letter T   
Disney World Vacation:
  Planning, Prepping, Packing and Postponing a trip of a lifetime and things I learned along the way.

To the ER and Beyond: The next two days are mostly a blurry nightmare to us both. I am driving her car (because she can't) and Alison is navigating with some confusion while she talks a million miles an hour. "Why is this happening, what should I do, why hasn't the medicine helped, why won't the pain stop, Turn right at this corner, now I can't hear- my ears are clogged, the sun hurts my eyes- OH, NO, I meant turn left at the corner."

Dr. Office Monday mid A.M.- Alison's doctor hears her symptoms and that Alison has gotten worse with the medicine prescribed and that she now has "the worst headache of her life" (with me trying to get her to realize that Alison is a sharp cookie and right now she is having trouble remembering her name). Alison mentions that she looked on line and her symptoms are similar to meningitis.The doctor looks worried, stays far away from Alison, leaves to consult with some else, then says she is sending us to the ER for tests and has called ahead so they know Alison's information. (You know we are leaving for Disney on Wednesday morning.)

ER around noon- Everyone here asks the same questions that the original doctor did (this place is just down the hall). They have none of Alison's information. Alison explains how this all started 2 weeks or so with a cold that she might have caught from her grandson.
They do a cat scan of her head, they draw blood, they give her some meds, they give her some fluids and we wait and wait. Every once in a while, the ER doctor, english is a second language, comes in to assure us that her tests are being evaluated. He also repeatedly says she does not have meningitis, he himself has seen meningitis and Alison wouldn't be able to move her head, her neck would be very stiff. When we remind him again that we are leaving for Disney he thinks that Alison should see a neurologist before we go. He prescribes some new meds and sends us home around dinnertime.

Home Monday night: Everything takes longer because Alison can hardly move. We have to call and cancel our babysitting duties for tomorrow. She takes a dose of her new medicine and gets sick to her tummy. She takes a different new med and now I can hardly get her off the couch. My concern from Sunday night has turned into real worry now.  This is my baby sister whom I love like my own children.

We go to bed with Disney on a far horizon.

          The Oil Industry Waking Up To Data Being The New Oil   

When you hang out in startup circles you hear the phrase, “data is the new oil” a lot. Getting rights to the mining and extracting, and generating revenue from data is big business, and VC, Hedge Funds, and even government are getting in on the game. Whether it is gathered from private or public sectors, or in your living room and pocket, everyone wants access to data.

One sign that this discussion is reaching new levels, is that the oil industry is talking about data being the new oil. That is right. I’m increasingly coming across stories about big data and the revenue opportunities derived from data when it comes to IoT, social, and many other trending sectors. The big oil supply chain has access to a lot of data to support its efforts, as well as generated from the exhaust of daily oil production to consumption–the opportunity is real man!

To entrepreneurs this shift is exciting I’m sure. To me, it’s troubling. Wall Street turning their sites to the data opportunity, and hedge funds getting in on the game worried me, but big oil being interested an even greater sign that things are reaching some extreme levels. It is one thing to use data is the new oil as a skeuomorph to find investment in your startup, or acquire new customers. It is another thing for the folks behind big oil to be paying attention–these are the same people who like to start wars to get at what they want.

Anyways, it is just one of many troubling signs emerging across the landscape. Many of my readers will dismiss as meaningless, but these discussions are just signs of an overall illness around how we see data, privacy, and security. Remember when we’d topple dictators to get at oil resources in the world? Well, welcome to the new world where you topple democracies if you have access to the right data resources.


          Many Perspectives On Internet Domains   

I am always fascinated by how people see Internet domains. I do not expect everyone to grasp all of the technical details of DNS or the nuance of the meaning behind the word domain, but I'm perpetually amazed by what people associate or do not associate with the concept. I like to write about these things under my domain literacy work, saving the research I do for future use, but also using the process to polish my storytelling on the subject, and hopefully being more influential when it comes to domain literacy discussions.

After watching the conversation around Audrey's decision to block annotation from her domain(s), I just wanted to take a moment and capture a few of the strange misconceptions around domains I've seen come up, as well as rework some of the existing myths and misunderstandings I deal with regularly when it comes to my API research, and wider domain literacy work. Let's explore some of the storytelling going on when it comes to what is an Internet domain.

What Is A Domain?
Many folks have no idea what a domain is. That they type them in regularly in their browsers, click on them, let alone that you can buy and own your own domain. This illiteracy actually plays into the hands of tech entrepreneurs, and each wave of capitalists who are investing in them--they do not want you knowing the details of each domain, who is behind them, and they want to make sure you are always operating on someone else's domain. It is how they will own, aggregate, and monetize your bits, always being the first to extract any value from what you do online, and via your mobile phones.

You Don't Own Your Domain!
A regular thing I hear back from people about domains is that you don't every truly own your domain. Well, I'd first say that you never really truly own ANYTHING, but that is probably another conversation. Do you really own your house? What happens if you don't pay your taxes, or use and respect the title company, and other powers involved? What about imminent domain laws? Sure, you don't really own your domain, but you are able to purchase it, control the addressing of it, and decide what gets hosted there (or not). It's pretty damn close to a common definition of ownership for this discussion.

Your Domain Is On the Internet So It Is Public!
Just walk yourself through the top domains you can think of. Does this argument hold any water? Every part, of every domain on the Internet is public because it uses public DNS and Internet infrastructure? No. There are so many grades of access and availability across many domains that use public infrastructure. Domain owners and operators get to determine which portions of a domain are accessible by the public, private partners, and even across internal actors. Even on the public areas, not protected by a password, there can be different levels of content delivery based upon region, individual IP address, or just randomly, leaving it to the algorithm to personalize what you will see. There are no guaranttees of something being public, just because it uses a public domain.

Domain Name Servers (DNS) Is Voodoo
Yes. DNS is voodoo. I've been managing DNS professionally for domains since 1998, and I still think it's voodoo. Even with DNS being a dark art, it is still something the average person can comprehend, and even manage at a basic level for simple domains, especially with the help of DNS service providers. DNS is the address, doorway and even the fence for the perimeter of your domain. DNS also helps you define and quantify the size of your domain, with the number of domains exponentially expanding your digital territory. A basic level proficiency with DNS is required to manage your own domain(s) successfully.

We Own What You Do In Our Domain!
Ok. Sure. Any new data or content that is generated by systems running within your domain can be seen as YOUR intellectual property. However, when you invite people to bring their bits (photos, videos, thoughts) to your domain and don't really educate them about intellectual property, and what you are up to, it can be easily argued that maybe what people generate in your domain isn't always yours. Even with that said, ensuring things happen within a specific domain, so that you can place some sort of ownership claim over those bits is a pretty standard operating procedure for the web today. This is why most of my work is conducted via my own domain(s) each day, and syndicated out to other domains as I see fit.

There Is No Real Difference Between Domains 
As people surf the web, they rarely see the difference between each domain. Unless it's big brands like Twitter, Facebook, Google, and others, I don't think people really ever consider the domain they are on, or who might be behind it. Those of us in the business do a lot of thinking about domains and see the crack in the web, but the average person doesn't see the boundaries, differences, or motivations behind. This all contributes to many different paths people take when it comes to domain literacy--depending on where they boarded with the concepts they'll see domains very differently. While some of us enjoy helping others understand domains, there are many who think it should be kept in the realm of the dark arts, and something normals shouldn't worry their pretty little heads about.

Everybody Gets The Same Experience At A Public Domain
Each domain you visit on the public web looks the same for everyone who visits, is a common perception I get from folks. We are good at projecting our reality at common online domains onto other people. The news I see on my favorite news site is what everyone else sees. My view of Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter is similar to what other people experience, or rather, I don't think people spend much time thinking about it, things are the way they are through a lack of curiosity. My Facebook is definitely not your Facebook. Our web experience is increasingly personalized and bubbleized, changing how and what each domain will mean to different folks. Net Neutrality is under attack on many fronts and is rapidly being eroded away in our browsers and on our mobile phones via the major providers.

I am captivated by this version of our online world that is unfolding around us. What worries me is the lack of understanding about how it works and some awareness of where they are all operating when online. People don't seem concerned with knowing what is safe, what is not. What worries me the most is that number of people who don't even have the concept of a domain, domain ownership, and any sense of separation between sites online. After that, the misuse, misinformation, and obfuscation of the digital world by people operating in the shadows and benefitting from ad revenue. I know many folks who would argue that we need to create safe spaces (domains) like Facebook where people can operate, but I feel pretty strongly that this is an Internet discussion, and not merely a platform one.

We have a lot of work ahead of us when it comes to web literacy. With the amount of time we are spending online, and the ways we are letting it infiltrate our physical worlds, we have to do better and educating people about the basic building blocks of the web. If we let "them" ruin the web, and platforms are the only safe place to be--cooperations win, and this grand experiment called the web is over. Maybe it already is, or maybe it never was, or maybe we can just help folks just see the web for what it is.


          How graduates can thrive, according to one Catholic entrepreneur   

Atlanta, Ga., Jun 30, 2017 / 12:14 am (CNA/EWTN News).- A new book by entrepreneur and philanthropist Frank J. Hanna goes beyond the cliché advice often offered to college students, in an effort to help them focus on the things that really matter for true success in life.  

Hanna, the CEO of Hanna Capital, is the author of the newly-released book, "A Graduate's Guide to Life: Three Things They Don't Teach You in College That Could Make All the Difference."

In addition to his success as a merchant banker, Hanna is known for his philanthropy, particularly his commitment to Catholic education and evangelization. He is an EWTN board member. CNA is part of the EWTN family.

Amazon describes the newly-released book by saying, “The college years are often referred to as the best years of your life. Author Frank J. Hanna believes your best years are still ahead of you, but only if you have a strategy for living that goes beyond what you learned in school.”

“According to Hanna, wealth and success are not what you think. Drawing on a lifetime of business experience, he proposes a radically different approach. He shows that wealth is not merely money, competition has a higher purpose than simply getting ahead, and a life of happiness is simpler to attain than we imagine.”

CNA interviewed Hanna about his new book, his inspiration in writing it, and the advice he would offer college students today. The text of the interview is below:

You state in your book to young college students that “I want to change how you think about your future.” Why?

Unfortunately, we now live in a world of immediacy. This means that much of the advice we give to young people is catchy, and fits into a tweet or Facebook post, but at best it is often shallow, and at its worst, it is often wrong. Most college students have been filled with this kind of thinking for most of their lives, and so they are not thinking about their future in the manner most likely to lead to success.

You have a problem with the usual comment that college will be “the best years of your life”...

This is one of the clichés that happens to be bad advice. We want to encourage young people, as they head off to college; however, when we tell them that the next four years are going to be the best four years of their lives, we send two faulty messages. First, we imply that after college, the next fifty years are all downhill. And secondly, we put pressure on them while they are in college to try to live in a risky, extraordinary fashion – if these are the best four years of their lives, shouldn’t they be doing extraordinary things every day? This sort of adrenaline-seeking FOMO approach to life is not the way to happiness.

Why did you feel the need to describe human competition as opposed to animal competition?

All mammals compete for food, water, and mates. Humans do too. But if humans do not infuse their competition with love and prudence, they act like animals. If they compete like humans, they can bring out the best in one another.  

How are hope and meaningful community connected to wealth in life?

For many years, I have studied wealth in business, and happiness trends among really wealthy people. I found that the common denominator for wealth in business was hopefulness in the future, and I found that the common denominator for happiness among rich people was not how much money they had, but whether they had good relationships with others, and hopefulness about the future of those relationships. I dive into more of the background of this issue in the book, and how to develop these sources of wealth, but these are the factors that the data shows produce well-being, which is actually the essence of wealth.

Could you comment on the current education system and why it inspired you to write this book?

I think our current education system, especially higher education, does a pretty good job of transmitting information. College and high school graduates today have more information than their parents or grandparents had. However, our colleges sometimes mistake information for knowledge, and so students may not have as much knowledge as they ought. Moving even beyond knowledge, it is wisdom that leads to human flourishing. But because wisdom is so often tied to questions related to transcendence, many of our colleges not only fail to impart wisdom – some of them even deny its existence, for to acknowledge wisdom is to acknowledge truth, and in a culture of relativism, many do not want to, or are afraid to, acknowledge absolute truth.
