          Fairline launches apprenticeship programme   

Photo

Supported by the British Marine Federation and the Shipwrights Apprenticeship Scheme, which encourages businesses to train apprentices, Evolve Business Training - the employer focused arm of Tresham College of Further and Higher Education in Northamptonshire - will work closely with Fairline to develop and deliver the apprenticeship training standards and assessments.

The Level 3 Engineering Apprenticeship programme will be tailored to the requirements of the global luxury yachting industry and will be based at Fairline’s Oundle headquarters and at the college’s Corby campus. The apprenticeship scheme will be a four year programme, during which time apprentices will gain invaluable training and experience, and learn and develop the specialist skills and knowledge required in building luxury motor yachts.

Stefan Whitmarsh, Head of Engineering at Fairline, says, “We are excited to be working with the apprentices from Tresham, it’s a unique opportunity for the students to learn a wide variety of trades and specifically, boat building.  The new apprenticeship scheme forms part of the plan to strengthen our business for the future, and it’s a chance for the 22 apprentices to be part of a great British brand that delivers luxury boats to a global audience.”

Rachel Kay, Deputy Principal and MD at Tresham says, “This is an excellent career opportunity for young people, and a chance to get on board with a major global player in the luxury boating market.”

Paul Harris, Administrator of the Shipwright Apprenticeship Scheme, says, “Through discussions between Shipwrights and the British Marine Federation we are meeting with Colleges and local businesses, such as Tresham and Fairline, to secure the return of marine apprenticeships to the region.”

Recruitment of the team of 22 apprenticeships is already underway and the Fairline Boatbuilding / Shipwright Apprenticeship Programme will commence in September 2015.


          2014 marks landmark year for Fairline boatbuilders   

Photo

23 members of staff working across the Fairline factories will reach the quarter century milestone in the months ahead – the highest number in one year to date. Recruited in 1989, these loyal employees joined the company just four years after the launch of the very first Targa model and two years before the debut of the now renowned Squadron series.

One such employee is Line Manager Gary Stanford, who started out working on the production moulds at Fairline. Gary will celebrate his 25th anniversary on 6th February 2014.

Commenting on reaching the milestone, Gary said: “It’s a great feeling to have worked at Fairline for so long. One of the best things about working here is the pride we take in watching our high quality motor yachts roll out of the door. If you look at any of our boats you can see the time, effort and craftsmanship that goes into each one. 

“I’ve got some great memories of my time here, including working on the ‘old’ Squadron 58. We managed to get the turnaround time down to eight days and production ran like clockwork. It was long hours and hard work but it was all worth it when you saw the finished boat.”

Kevin Gaskell, CEO of Fairline Boats, commented: “2014 looks to be an exciting year for Fairline Boats and our employees. For 23 members of the team to reach the 25 year mark is an incredible testament to the passion and dedication of our talented workforce. We hope to see many more of our craftsmen reach this milestone in the years ahead.”

To acknowledge 25 years of loyal service, members of staff can choose a gift and flowers are also sent to their spouses or partners. Family members will also be invited to a special presentation, where the achievement will be formally recognised.


          Curry por 201   

Como se esperaba, los Warriors pusieron todo su esfuerzo para retener a Stephen Curry, quien finalmente pasó a tener un salario acorde a su condición de estrella luego de cobrar la temporada anterior "apenas" 12 millones.

El reciente campeón con los Warriors firmó un contrato de 201 millones de dólares por los próximos cinco años, que lo pone como el mejor pagado de la NBA y de todas las ligas profesionales de Estados Unidos.

Curry ahora superará en salario a LeBron James, de Cleveland, que fue el primero en felicitar a su rival una vez que se enteró de la renovación de su colega.

Anoche a primera hora se largó la carrera de negociaciones y renovaciones entre los jugadores y los equipos de la NBA, en lo que se denomina "agencia libre". Los contratos negociados desde el 1 de julio y hasta el seis de este mes se empezarán a firmar quedarán oficializados a partir del viernes próximo.

Entre otras operaciones que fueron adelantadas por distintos medios de comunicación, el alero Paul George, de Indiana Pacers, pasó a Oklahoma City Thunder a cambio de Victor Oladipo y Domantas Sabonis.

También, los Warriors se aseguraron la renovación de otra pieza capital en su esquema: Shaun Livingston. A sus 31 años, el escolta ha alcanzado un acuerdo por tres temporadas y 24 millones de dólares. El tercer año del acuerdo estaría parcialmente garantizado: sólo 2 de los 8 millones quedarían asegurados para el jugador.

Otro equipo que rompió la chequera fue Los Angeles Clippers: extendieron el contrato del ala pivote Blake Griffin a cambio de 173 millones por cinco temporadas, lo que convierte su acuerdo en el segundo más importante de la NBA. 

Además, se produjeron otros movimientos y, a la espera de la firma del acuerdo, otras negociaciones contractuales estarían encaminadas:

Tony Snell continuaría en Milwaukee por cinco campañas y 46.000.000.

Patty Mills habría sellado un acuerdo para continuar en San Antonio hasta 2021 (4 temporadas), por los que recibiría 50 millones.

The Fairline yacht won the Best Import Motoryacht award in the 60-70 feet category. With exceptional sea-keeping and a beautiful quality of finish, the luxurious Squadron 60 illustrates just why Fairline continues to lead the way in motor yacht engineering and design. The Squadron 60 was chosen by the award’s panel of judges, made up of the editors from AIM Media titles including Yachts International and Power & MotorYacht magazine.


Oliver Winbolt, Head of Marketing, commented: “We are very pleased to have won the Editor’s Choice Award. We were up against the entire industry, and we were delighted to hear the editors championed the Squadron 60. It is good to be acknowledged for the hard work and passion we put in to our manufacturing, and we look forward to introducing the Squadron 60 in America in 2013 and securing even more forward orders over the coming months.”

The Editor’s Choice Award is a new AIM Marine Group award, recognising the best the boating industry has to offer.


          Re: Does Your Patent Attorney Possess ‘Reasonable Skill and Knowledge’?    

Are you suggesting that a patent attorney might actually draft and prosecute a claim that they (or their client) actually know/believe to be invalid? I think that the high water mark for such a circumstance, at least insofar as litigated patents are concerned, is probably Les Laboratoires Servier failing to heed its Australian attorneys' advice to incorporate additional disclosure of the 'best method' in its specification (see Patentee Punished for Failing to Heed Attorney’s Recommendation). In that case, of course, the court exercised its discretion to disallow the amendment in the first place, so the question of limiting damages under s 115 never arose (although Servier could have rectified the deficiency before the Patent Office under s 104, had it the foresight to do so).

More commonly, knowledge of invalidity arises at some later date, perhaps because of the preference, as you rightly note, to err on the side of breadth in the absence of any reason to act otherwise. The court appears to have been quite sympathetic to this reality, notwithstanding the suggestion that there may be some 'gap' between the bad faith of 'covetous claiming' and the 'good faith' require by s 115(1) (see, e.g., [39]-[47] of the decision). I doubt, therefore, that drafting broadly is a problem, in and of itself, so long as it is done competently and in good faith.

I take your point, however. Section 115, on its face, is concerned with the specification as a whole, and it does not appear that it would matter that there may be an infringed claim that is wholly untouched by an amendment. Although the argument could be made that a patent specification which includes at least one valid and successfully enforceable claim has surely been drafted with reasonable skill and knowledge! And if the invalid claim was obtained in something other than good faith, then passing on the amendment may not save the day anyway - there is always the possibility of an attack under s 138(3)(d).


          Re: Does Your Patent Attorney Possess ‘Reasonable Skill and Knowledge’?    

It will be interesting if this issue is ever addressed in a case where a knowingly invalid claim has sat alongside a valid independent claim. In such a case it may be safer to leave the invalid claim in place and merely sue on the valid claim.
It also raises the issue that in drafting we would generally err on the side of an overly broad claim, rather than a too-narrow one (noting that broadening amendments may not be possible in some jurisdictions). This case suggests that one needs to be cautious with such an approach, at least in some instances.


          Re: Regulatory Board Recognises Validity of Publicly-Listed Patent Attorney Structures   

Hi Andy,

I agree that the scenario of commonly-owned yet independent firms was not mentioned or addressed in the explanatory memorandum. But what you said was that this was somehow purposeful, with the objective of avoiding scrutiny. The only people involved in, and ultimately responsible for, drafting the legislation were the relevant officers of IP Australia, others within the Department of Industry, the Parliamentary Draftsman, and the Minister. So who exactly is it, if not these people, that you are suggesting 'purposely omitted' the scenario from a desire to 'avoid any scrutiny'? It is this attribution of motive that I consider unsubstantiated.

And I stand by calling your assertion that firms have 'not bothered to inform their overseas clients or their local clients about the new arrangements' ill-informed, because to the best of my knowledge and belief it is factually incorrect. This is not, therefore, a matter of 'opinion'. Where there is scope for opinion is in whether the listed firms have done all that they could or (arguably) should to educate clients and the wider market about the operational aspects and consequences of the arrangement.

On this point, I agree completely with the Board (and it is clearly the Board's words you are quoting there, not Professor Christie's). I have reiterated this view repeatedly, most recently in my response to 'Dave's comment in this discussion. But I do think that the listed firms have been trying to do the right thing, although they may have underestimated the difficulty of the task. The Board has hit the nail right on the head here: 'achieving complete awareness and understanding ... is unlikely to be possible in practice.' But this is true in many industries and professions - clients are often not as sophisticated (or interested) as their advisers.

You have been outspoken in your views on the developments in the Australian profession, and the firm you work for has been one of those that is using this as a opportunity to market your independence as a virtue. I have no issue with that at all, indeed I think it is one of the benefits of this process that firms on both sides can use the relative pros and cons of different structures as a means to differentiate themselves in the market. There is a genuine choice available to clients in this regard that was not open to them previously (assuming this is something they care about).

However, it is one thing to promote your independence as a virtue, and another altogether to cast aspersions on, or attribute nefarious motives to, your competitors who have chosen to go down a different path. And while everyone is certainly entitled to an opinion, not all opinions are created equal. There is an alternative name for opinions that are based on personal beliefs or feelings, rather than on facts and evidence. That word is 'prejudices'.

          Are you a procrastinator?   
I definitely am! I am so envious of the many writer's blogs I visit where the authors are so diligent and so prolific - I am in awe of them :)

But I know I will never be like them (sadly), so I have my own techniques for dealing with procrastination. I was asked to write a blog post for Romance Writers of Australia's 50ks in 30 days event, which is taking place at the moment. I am an under performing participant, as I very very optimistically thought I could write 40K despite being on my honeymoon throughout June. Ha! But, I am writing, and will certainly write much more than I would have otherwise. (also, this way I am not heading for early divorce :) ).

I will be lazy and repost my blog below, or you can view the original here: RWA's 50ks in 30 days

The Procrastinator’s Guide to 50ks in 30 Days

I am a terrible procrastinator. The worst, quite possibly. But I have written a 50K book in 30 days – and that book will be my debut novel for Harlequin Mills & Boon in September. And if I – a writer who will find absolutely anything to do, other than actually write – can do that, than other procrastinators can too. I promise!

I’ve attempted 50k30days before, and failed dismally. It even took me four years to finish my first manuscript! So what changed this time? How was I magically cured of this dreadful procrastination curse?

Well, sadly – I’m still a procrastinator. Procrastination, I’m pretty sure, is here to stay. But now I have tools to deal with it. I cannot promise that what worked for me will work for you, and I can promise that nothing I’m about to say is particularly ground breaking. But it worked for me, so well that the word count I’m capable of achieving when I follow these steps still shocks me.

So here it its…

Leah Ashton’s Anti-Procrastination Toolkit

1. Erase the guilt
So you’re a procrastinator. Everyone around you is more productive and diligent than you (or so it seems!). Cue hours of self-flagellation. Or – acknowledge that you are what you are, and find techniques that allow
you to up your word count regardless. Feeling guilty won’t put words onto paper – so what’s the point?

2. Give yourself a real deadline
I would love to be one of those people who can’t bear a day without writing, but…well… I’m not. So, I need a deadline to get my butt in the seat. And it needs to be a real one, not just “I will write 10K by the end of
the month”, it needs to be a deadline with consequences if I fail. Prior to publication, my deadlines were planned around writing competitions. So if I didn’t hit my deadline, I couldn’t enter.
So, give yourself a deadline, with a real consequence. Find a writing competition with an entry date in early July. Sign up for a pitch at the conference. Anything – but make sure there is a consequence other than, “oh well.”

3. Have a plan (or even a plot)
I used to think I was a seat-of-my-pantser, resulting in the euphoric dashing off of an effortless chapter one, and chapter two and… then……nothing. I know this will be controversial with confirmed pantsers, but I strongly recommend at least a sketch of your plot. Just a vague plan of where you’re going and the main turning points along the journey. Why?
Well, nothing triggers a serious procrastination session for me than a blank page and absolutely no idea where I’m going. Reduce the risk of finding yourself with terrifying nothingness ahead of you and plan. Your plan is your safety net – and besides, you can always ignore it!

4. Remove yourself from temptation
What do you do when you procrastinate? Do you read? Watch TV? Surf the Internet? Whatever it is, get yourself away from it. Be dramatic if you have to – go write at a café, have someone physically remove your TV from your house, give your modem to your husband and tell him he is not under any circumstances to give it back. You get the idea?
Obviously this is for confirmed procrastinators like me – if will power is enough for you, then that is awesome, but if not, do whatever you have to do. The Internet is my vice, and I’ve been known to lock my Internet dongle in my car, or alternatively I use a really nifty program called Freedom (available for Mac and PC), which cost $10 and will block the Internet for up to 8 hours – and the only way to get it back is to re-boot your computer. If it’s just some sites that suck the time out of your day, look into browser add-ons like Google Chrome’s StayFocusd or Firefox’s LeechBlock. Both will either block a site totally, or give you a maximum time limit per day.

5. Write with your friends
The discovery of sprints (where you write for 30 minutes or an hour with a friend, and then report back with your word count) was a breakthrough for me. I am a slow writer, so I never had super impressive word counts, but knowing I had to report in with my word count was super motivating.
Make sure you check into the Sprint Sessions in the RWA Chatroom throughout 50Ks in 30 Days, or follow along on Twitter. And if you can’t write with your friends? Well…

6. Sit down, and start typing
It’s hardly surprising, but the reality is if you sit down every day, without any distractions, and simply write a word, followed by another word, and then another – your word count will go up. Sometimes the idea of writing X number of words can be so overwhelming that starting seems impossible. But when you do start, and regardless if the words flow or are squeezed out painfully – as long as you’ll keep writing, you’ll hit your
word count. And once you start doing it day after day – well, before you know it – you would have written a book. Or 50Ks in 30 days!

There you have it – my procrastinator’s guide to 50Ks in 30 days. Please let me know if you reach into my toolkit – I’d love to know if it helps you, too. And as I’m also looking for new weapons to slay the procrastination beast – what tips have I missed that help you?
          New country classifications by income level: 2017-2018   

Updated country income classifications for the World Bank’s 2018 fiscal year are available here.

The World Bank assigns the world's economies into four income groups — high, upper-middle, lower-middle, and low. We base this assignment on GNI per capita calculated using the Atlas method. The units for this measure and for the thresholds is current US Dollars.

At the Bank, these classifications are used to aggregate data for groups of similar countries. The income-category of a country is not one of the factors used that influence lending decisions.

Each year on July 1st, we update the classifications. They change for two reasons:

1. In each country, factors such as income growth, inflation, exchange rates, and population change, influence GNI per capita.

2. To keep the dollar thresholds which separate the classifications fixed in real terms, we adjust them for inflation.

The data for the first adjustment come from estimates of 2016 GNI per capita which are now available. This year, the thresholds have moved down slightly because of low price inflation and the strengthening of the US dollar. Click here for information about how the World Bank classifies countries.

Updated Thresholds

New thresholds are determined at the start of the Bank’s fiscal year in July and remain fixed for 12 months regardless of subsequent revisions to estimates. As of July 1 2017, the new thresholds for classification by income are:

Threshold GNI/Capita (current US$)
Low-income < 1,005
Lower-middle income 1,006 - 3,955
Upper-middle income 3,956 - 12,235
High-income > 12,235

Changes in Classification

The following countries have new income groups:

Country Old group New group
Angola Upper-middle Lower-middle
Croatia High-income Upper-middle
Georgia Upper-middle Lower-middle
Jordan Upper-middle Lower-middle
Nauru High-income Upper-middle
Palau Upper-middle High-income
Samoa Lower-middle Upper-middle
Tonga Lower-middle Upper-middle

The country and lending groups page provides a complete list of economies classified by income, region, and lending status and links to previous years’ classifications. The classification tables include all World Bank members, plus all other economies with populations of more than 30,000. The term country, used interchangeably with economy, does not imply political independence but refers to any territory for which authorities report separate social or economic statistics.

Tables showing 2016 GNI, GNI per capita, GDP, GDP PPP, and Population data are also available as part of the World Bank's Open Data Catalog. Note that these are preliminary estimates and may be revised. For more information, please contact us at data@worldbank.org.


          Q2 2017 Update of World Development Indicators Available   

The World Development Indicators database has been updated. This is a regular quarterly update to over 600 indicators and includes both new indicators and updates to existing indicators.

2016 data for population, GDP and GNI-related indicators have been released for countries and aggregates. Other data that have been updated include: balance of payments series, monetary indicators, military expenditure, and merchandise trade. The classifications of countries by income, and aggregations by income group reflect new fiscal year 2018 income classifications.

New Public Private Partnership series have been introduced in this release. The percentage of people with an account (SDG 8.10.2 from the Findex) is also available and disaggregated by sex, income, and education level.

Purchasing Power Parities have been updated for OECD and Eurostat countries to reflect their latest release. Purchasing Power Parities and related indicators in PPP terms for Cuba (expenditures, income, etc.) have been removed.

Data can be accessed via various means including:

- The World Bank’s multi-lingual, mobile-friendly data site, http://data.worldbank.org  
- The DataBank query tool: http://databank.worldbank.org 
- Bulk download in XLS and CSV formats and directly from the API

          Pops and O.P. - "You Go To My Head"   
© -Steven Cerra, copyright protected; all rights reserved.


“Louis Armstrong  was the father of “vernacular music,” which was made possible by the microphone.  Anyone with any kind of contemporary rhythmic concept —be they singer, instrumentalist, or composer-arranger— owes a debt to Armstrong.  By the way, my favorite Armstrong performance, both playing and singing, is his 1957 recording of “You Go To My Head” with Oscar Peterson. If you want to understand where Miles Davis came from, and why Armstrong is still relevant today, listen to this.  I often play it for students, and many of them find it a life-changing record.”
- Bill Kirchner, Jazz musician


Returning to the subject of favorite recordings, Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson [825 713-2] has been included in that group since Verve released it in 1957.


Louis’ meeting with Oscar Peterson's trio, is as Richard Cook and Brian Morton in The Penguin Guide to Jazz on CD, 6th Ed “perhaps a mixed success, but nevertheless an intriguing disc.”


Peterson can't altogether avoid his besetting pushiness, yet he's just as often sotto voce [a quiet or understated voice; literally “under the voice”] in accompaniment, and on the slower tunes especially - Sweet Lorraine and Lets Fall In Love and You Go To My Head.”


But the important point here is that “the chemistry works, and Louis is certainly never intimidated.”


I also agree with them when they assert: “It’s good to hear [Pops] on material more obviously 'modern' than he normally tackled and, although he sometimes gets the feel of a song wrong, he finds a surprising spin tor several of the lyrics.”


But I think, the most important point to be made in its favor is that, thanks again to the intercession of impresario Norman Granz in, that the album exists!


How many times have you heard friends’ remarks about Wish List recordings - “Gee, I wonder what it would have sounded like to have so-and-so performing with such-and-such - while knowing that the reality is that’s never going to happen because those artists are no longer with us?


I’ve often longed for a Louis Armstrong-Art Tatum recording, but that never happened, either. Thankfully, this one did, especially since Oscar Peterson gets a close to Tatum as anyone ever did.


Put another way, although a modern stylist and very much his own man, Peterson’s homage to Tatum is very much apparent in his playing and is what I think that Cook-Morton are referring to when they mention Oscar’s “besettling pushiness.” But that’s not the way I hear it. What’s on display here is a great accompanist offering his talents to a great soloist, one very much deserving of his respect.


More about the special nature of Louis Armstrong Meets Oscar Peterson [Verve 825 713-2] is revealed in Leonard Feather's liner notes from the original LP release of this material:


"When I was a kid," Louis Armstrong says, "I used to go singing around in churches or choirs or on street corners. You'd get four hustlers on a corner who could make a sharp quartet. 1 was about seven years old when I started singing. We'd pass the hat and sometimes we'd make as much as $1.50 a night. That was like $150 a night now"


This recollection places Satchmo's vocal career ahead of his horn-blowing life by several years and means that he has been singing, for pleasure and money, over half a century. Since today his popularity with the general public can be credited even more to his singing than to the trumpet that originally made him a globally known figure, and since the present album is basically a set of vocal performances, it is interesting to note that this thorny, rock-bottomed approach to the use of the human voice predated (and in a sense predicted) similar melodic and rhythmic nuances on the cornet and trumpet.


As George Avakian pointed out in The Jazz Makers (Grove Press), Louis "developed a whole school of jazz singing, based on a literal interpretation of the folk and blues singers' approach to the voice as an instrument. Louis showed that the emotional meaning of o lyric can be expressed through vocal inflections and improvisations of a purely instrumental quality just as effectively — more so, in fact — as through words. This line of development paralleled the growth of his instrumental influence. It still embraces every jazz and popular singer today"


All this can be applied at full strength to the dozen interpretations on these sides of material that generally falls in the popular song category. What Louis may lack in clear understanding of the lyrics' meaning in occasional lines is more than compensated by his overall feeling for the mood of both lyrics and melody. And there are, of course, additional virtues in the presence of his companions. The Oscar Peterson Trio Plus One (Louis Bellson again rounds out the rhythm section as he did on previous albums in which Oscar's trio played for Louis, Ella Fitzgerald and others) is perhaps the most perfectly integrated rhythmic unit of its kind in contemporary jazz.

Peterson's background is about as different from Louis' as Admiral Byrd's from Dr. Livingstone's; yet it is this very contrast, and the eclectic quality in his work, that makes him the ideal accompanist, for any singer or instrumentalist of any jazz school. What Louis learned on the streets and in the Waifs' Home in New Orleans has its best possible complement in what Oscar learned during rigorous classical studies north of the border. Neither had to bend a millimeter in musical concession to the other; the blend of spontaneous musicianship and academic knowledge was natural and immediate.


All the songs in this are from 15 to 30 years old; all have been used extensively by jazzmen, though in several instances Louis had never before recorded them. ...


You Go To My Head is, unless memory fails, Louis' first recorded performance of a number he could and should have introduced as soon as it was published, over 20 years ago. Perhaps in an effort to compensate for keeping us waiting so long, he plays an entire chorus and sings another. Not since Billie Holiday has there been a comparable sympathetic treatment….


Hearing Louis in the un-frilled, ungimmicked setting of the Oscar Peterson rhythm section will be a treat for those who have often seen him in person and wished for fewer encumbrances. Basically Louis needs nobody but Louis — he could stand all alone in the middle of the Sahara, singing selected excerpts from the Tunis telephone directory, and we suspect he could make it for a week without food and water. But if there must be someone else, let it be the man whose team made this
session such a happy occasion for all concerned. The meeting of Armstrong and Peterson marked one of the most catalytic moments since the day when Peterson met Norman Granz.”


Of You Go To My Head, Ted Gioia has written in The Jazz Standards: A Guide to the Repertoire [Oxford]


You Go to My Head
Composed by J. Fred Coots, with lyrics by Haven Gillespie


“In 1934, this same songwriting duo collaborated on "Santa Claus Is Coming to Town," which endeared itself to Mom and Dad by getting countless youngsters to move from the naughty to nice cohort group. Four years later, some of those nice kids had grown up, but I'm confident few parents encouraged their headstrong teens to follow the lead of the new Gillespie-Coots hit "You Go to My Head." This song was a paean to romantic infatuation, packed with similes relating love to booze; in the course of a few bars — musical ones, that is, not those called "Dew Drop Inn" — we get references to champagne, burgundy, and a kicker of julep. Indeed, this song comes closer than any tune I know to capturing in musical form the feeling of losing control.


If the words were a bit too sophisticated for the kids, so was the music. "You Go to My Head" is an intricately constructed affair with plenty of harmonic movement. The song starts in a major key, but from the second bar onward, Mr. Coots seems intent on creating a feverish dream quality tending more to the minor mode. The release builds on the drama, and the final restatement holds some surprises as well. The piece would be noteworthy even if it lacked such an exquisite coda, but those last eight bars convey a sense of resigned closure to the song that fittingly matches the resolution of the lyrics.


Four artists had hit records with this song during the summer 051938. Larry Clinton's version was the biggest success, reaching as high as #3, but Teddy Wilson, Billie Holiday, and Glen Gray's Casa Loma Orchestra each enjoyed placement in the top 20 with their releases. The song fell out of circulation during the early 19403, but was widely covered during the second half of the decade, with artists from a range of stylistic camps — including Dizzy Gillespie, Gene Krupa, Lena Home, Coleman Hawkins, Dave Brubeck, Artie Shaw, and Lennie Tristano — bringing their individual talents to bear on it.


Vocalists tend to take this song at a "deep ballad" tempo, sometimes so extremely slow that they test the competence of the rhythm section to maintain a sense of swing while moving along at less than 40 beats per minute. Check out the recordings by Betty Carter and Shirley Horn for examples of how this can work when the instrumentalists on hand match the skill of the singer. In contrast, Bill Evans — whom one might expect to linger over the chart — delivers a simmering hard bop treatment on his 1962 Interplay album, helped along by Jim Hall and Freddie Hubbard.


Dave Brubeck and Paul Desmond take a different approach in their 1952 duet performance from Storyville, mixing romanticism and cerebral deconstruction in equal doses. Desmond had such fondness for this recording that when he and Brubeck reunited for a duet project in 1975, he wanted to showcase "You Go to My Head" again, and the song served as the emotional centerpiece of the resulting album. Both versions are worth hearing, but the earlier track is especially revealing of the simpatico relationship between these two artists, and is my favorite performance from their work for the Fantasy label.”


Here’s a video of Pops and OP performing You Go to My Head.




          Case Study downtown pop up   
While waiting in downtown Portland for the Max light rail train, I looked across the street and saw this:


I was drawn like a moth to a flame.  It turned out that it was a "pop up" in a retail space that was being built out for a new tenant.  The tiny kiosk was set up in a doorway; and, just a few feet beyond the barista, there was nothing but bare studs and work lights.  What  really made this jarring was the espresso machine: a Kees van der Westen Speedster.   Among the truly espresso obsessed, this is equivalent to, say, seeing a Lamborghini  Countach drive by your house.  Not an everyday occurrence.

The Speedster is, along with a few other machines, on the leading edge of espresso technology.  It is really set apart, though, by its striking aesthetics.  Below is a photo of the Speedster at Case Study; but the lighting, the camera and my photography skills really do not do it justice.


Although I had already had four double espressos that day (intensive blog research!), I was unable to resist the siren song of the Speedster.  The friendly and knowledgeable barista pulled me a very ristretto shot of a medium roasted bean that was complex, slightly citrusy and sweet.  I paid the jangly fried nerve price later, but, for that moment, I understood why the Speedster has earned its reputation as one of the premiere espresso machines.
          Maglia Rosa   
Maglia Rosa is an espresso kiosk located inside West End Bikes.  The kiosk's name is Italian for the "pink jersey," which is awarded to the rider with the lowest aggregate time in Italy's premier bike race, the Giro d'Italia.  West End Bikes is in downtown Portland, and is an excellent place to go if you feel the need to spend $6,000 on a bike.  Maglia Rosa's pleasures are similarly stratospheric in quality, but much more affordable.


Using a fully tricked out LaMarzocco, the barista pulls exquisite shots.  Single origin only, from Stumptown Roasters.  The attention to detail is remarkable.  I commented on the perfection, and the barista's reaction implied that this was a matter of course and nothing else would be acceptable or even possible.  She generously shared her knowledge and I loved her intensity.  I later discovered that Maglia Rosa is owned by United States Barista Champion, Phuong Tran.


In a town where the quest for the very best coffee can seem close to blood sport, Maglia Rosa is a contender.





          Ristretto Roasters on North Williams   
I was at Ristretto Roasters yesterday and noticed the barista really putting her body weight into tamping an espresso shot.  Among coffee geeks, this kind of thing is controversial.  Some insist that the coffee should be no more than lightly tamped.  The "consensus" is that one should tamp with about 25 to 30 pounds of downward pressure (you can even buy a tamper that has a built in device for measuring exactly 30 pounds of pressure).  So one might see a nerdy eyebrow or two raised about the Ristretto barista's tamping gusto. But any critics would be silenced by the resulting shot: nutty aroma and big caramel malt flavors with impressive mouthfeel.

They do not actually roast at this particular Ristretto Roasters; that is done at another of their handful of locations.  Like many small roasters in Portland, Ristretto's focus is on medium roasts, while apparently eschewing the black-oily french and italians that once seemed to define gourmet coffee.  Their Beaumont Blend is a good choice when making espresso at home, but they also have an ever changing selection of single origin beans.

This store is a personal favorite.  The staff is knowledgeable and infectiously enthusiastic about coffee minutia.  The space may be a little too clean, and every customer  (I mean every single one!) seems to be on a Mac Powerbook.  That's balanced, though, by the ragged voices of  Bob Dylan and Tom Waits on the stereo.   The store also has an impressively huge four head espresso machines with naked portafilters.  And who can resist that?

Artificial Intelligence Poised to Ride a New Wave    By Gary Anthes 
Communications of the ACM, Vol. 60 No. 7, Pages 19-21

Artificial intelligence (AI), once described as a technology with permanent potential, has come of age in the past decade. Propelled by massively parallel computer systems, huge datasets, and better algorithms, AI has brought a number of important applications, such as image- and speech-recognition and autonomous vehicle navigation, to near-human levels of performance.

Now, AI experts say, a wave of even newer technology may enable systems to understand and react to the world in ways that traditionally have been seen as the sole province of human beings. These technologies include algorithms that model human intuition and make predictions in the face of incomplete knowledge, systems that learn without being pre-trained with labeled data, systems that transfer knowledge gained in one domain to another, hybrid systems that combine two or more approaches, and more powerful and energy-efficient hardware specialized for AI. ....

Making Statistics Work in the Real World

Wharton's Bhaswar Bhattacharya discusses his research on statistical methods.

The field of statistics is about more than just crunching numbers. Wharton statistics professor Bhaswar Bhattacharya is researching the best ways to apply statistical methods to solve problems in a range of fields, from health care to marketing to languages. Bhattacharya spoke with Knowledge@Wharton about shedding new light on one of the oldest mathematical disciplines.  

(Podcast) An edited transcript of the conversation follows. .... 

Knowledge@Wharton: Could you give us a brief summary of your research and what kind of question you were trying to answer?

Bhaswar Bhattacharya: My research interests are the intersection of statistics probability and combinatorics. Recently, numerous and very interesting combinatorial and graph theory-related problems have emerged in statistics, mainly because of the ubiquitous presence of network data and the increasing use of graph-based methods in modern-day analytics. As a consequence, many interesting connections have emerged between modern statistical methods and classical concepts in geometry and probability. You can use them to solve interesting problems in statistics. .... "

          [uhindsv46]:All Aspects of Your Golf Swing - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   
It is best to not go crazy in buying training aids that aren't needed, and you shouldn't purchase the first one you find. Before you buy anything golf is often played along with friends, you need to know where your swing needs help, because otherwise the aid won't do you any good. The nice thing is you can find a golf swing training aid to correct stances go to have best golf game possible, keep you still as you hit translate it to your golf swing, or create accuracy with special golf balls. Some people like to use diagrams, DVDs How to Have the Best Golf Game Possible(II), books or videos to solve a hitch in the swing or an incorrect movement.
 
There are a variety of training gadgets on the market today that are just perfect for improving all aspects of your swing. These can be found online as well as in specialty golf stores and sporting goods stores close to your home. A local golf pro can likely provide you with a few suggestions if you aren't sure which one is best for you.
 
You can use your aids in conjunction with the knowledge you learn from a live golf training course or an online course. Many program options are available, and each will provide you with important tips and pointers for different parts of your game.
 
Those who are interested in improving their golf game should not overlook the importance of physical fitness. You can spend all the time in the world improving your skills with golf swing training aids, but if you don't have the physical stamina and strength to execute those skills all the way to the last hole, your practice and training is not being put to optimal use. Be sure to check out a golf fitness training program in your area or use an online or DVD option to improve your physical fitness level and make you an overall better golfer.
 

Golf is a competitive game, and it only makes sense that you would want to do what you can to try to be the best player on the course on any given day. Whether you have been golfing for years or are new to the game Hit Golf Ball Straighter, there are many golf swing training options available that can help you enhance your existing skills and teach you a few new ones, too.

          [uhindsv46]:More golf knowledge - POCO空间(POCO.CN)   

Golf exercises that should with weights for example bulky muscles built. Be used generally much lighter weights and several times in contrast to normal muscle building training which much heavier weights less time repeals, is hereby repealed. The muscle will call for longer hours of exercises daily exercises. Golf exercises takes very little time.


What’s more, is easily done many golf training stretch exercises in your Office can while still sitting at your desk or work station. This means that even if you have the kind of schedule, with virtually no time to spare leaves you still time in some serious golf training exercises to put the your golf game will take place, can find to another level, they have never before known.
 
Find a teaching method, you can relate to, the golf swing on your own without lessons, books or videos, if you think you can find the jokes are you. What do you think you do what you actually do is never. Just when you think you have it, it’s gone. It would not make sense to follow you through the different parts of the swing a step by step method and tells you in a way, you can understand. There are many different teachers out there with many different thought to swing properly as the Association. I myself, to teach the golf swing based on the 3 elements of the iron Byron swing machine that Byron Nelson was modeled after the swing. In my many years trying to figure out the swing saw I it until I say iron Byron hit a golf ball. As soon as I mind and I it refer the simplicity of the machine to my own swing, started to fit the pieces together. If this sounds then following my approach would be attractive to you a great idea. If not, lessons from your local Pro or a quick search in a bookstore or on the Internet will give you many other ways.
 
Tons of practice swings to do if you chose a teacher and a method’s time to practice it what you’ve learned. Again, it is not as easy as whacking balls out there. They were shown certain positions you need to integrate your swing. The best way to do this is by doing tons of practice swings in the mirror or in the field. By doing lots of practice swings, will eliminate your new swing positions so you can consistently do you when you make actual shots. The whole point of a change is to make the change. Of only whacking balls out there will continue to do your old swing that is full of errors.
 
Before you choose a gift for a golfer, it makes sense to make the following 3 questions and appropriate responses for you to get. Keep in mind that this is a task that is much more complicated than it might seem at first glance.
 
If a good golfer to be it is time to change, as you practice currently want to understand what it takes to better and create a plan follow religiously. When you start these changes now, are you on your way… When you start next week, are week behind.

          Antique 1800's quack medicine bottle WORM SYRUP Children cry for more embossed on it by LastChanceAntiques   

49.99 USD

A 4 1/2" tall aqua-colored cylinder-shaped antique PATENT (quack) MEDICINE bottle.

Bottle is embossed "BUMSTEAD WORM SYRUP / ONE BOTTLE HAS KILLED 100 WORMS / CHILDREN CRY FOR MORE / JUST TRY IT / PHILADA."

This bottle has just some traces of content stain, otherwise in good condition. NO cracks, chips, dings, damage, etc.

An antique hand Blown Into Mold (BIM) bottle, ca. late 1800s.

Not a commonly seen antique bottle, and what great embossing on it; "CHILDREN CRY FOR MORE", suggesting it had to of been heavily laced with a very dependent narcotic such as opium or morphine, possibly even heroin, which was fairly common place in medicines back in the day when this QUACK medicine was in circulations. Think about it ... WHEN was the last time children cried for more of any kind of medicine, let alone worm syrup?! Heroin withdrawals would bring about this condition, and "ONE BOTTLE KILLS 100 WORMS", well heroin could of done that too, making this a Total quack!

And, as much as I hate to put this in my listing, this problem is on the increase, so here goes ... Please DO NOT steal ANY OF MY LISTING INFORMATION; my title, description, item specifics, PICTURES, or format. I continue to have problems with defiant sellers stealing my work AND presenting it as their own-

IMPORTANT NOTE: WE purchase antique bottles and have the resources, knowledge, time, and ability to travel, to purchase entire bottle collections. Whether it be just one (1) or a collection into the 1000's, no amount is too large or small as we've been in the business for going on three (3) decades !

          No, You Probably Can't Bend the iPhone 6 Plus. Unless You're a Bodybuilder.   

Direct link to article... [littlegreenfootballs.com]

Apple sold over 10 million iPhones on the first weekend. No idea what percentage of those were iPhone 6 Plus models, but any way you cut it, millions of iPhone 6 Plus devices were sold.

Apple itself on Thursday acknowledged acknowledged that it has received reports of the phone bending. But cases are "extremely rare." Out of the millions of phones sold, Apple said a total of nine customers contacted the company about a bent iPhone 6 Plus.

...

So, yes, the phone can bend. But at least from these "tests," you really have to be trying to bend it in order to do any noticeable damage.

Hi Andrew, Thanks, it's a fantastic instruction! I have to work out for my Company how we can view our 3D Models with HTC Vive. I have no previous knowledge about Virtual Reality or Visualization in MicroStation. Your instructions and videos helped me very much to get my 3D Model running in Unity and viewing with the Vive Headset. But after a lot of testing there is still one big main issue for me. I can't get running the controller in the right way in Unity and VR. At first I even couldn't see the controller. With the latest SteamVR Plugin Update 1.2.2 I at least can see the controller, but the Trigger for Teleporting doesn't work. Nothing happens. I followed exactly your instructions, but it doesn't work. My experiences with Unity are Zero, so I don't know what could be wrong! Do you have any help? Regards Christian

          SSPX regularization: Is it worth the risk?   
SSPX regularization: Is it worth the risk?
SOURCE
You all know what I have to say on the matter...
Last week, I commented upon an article written by Fr. Jean-Michel Gleize, SSPX, an English translation of which was published online by the Remnant under the title:
A MAJOR SSPX CLARIFICATION: Towards a Doctrinal Agreement?
In the article, Fr Gleize articulated his objections to any possible agreement with Rome that would result in its canonical regularization apart from “a correction of the Council’s errors.”
Prior to publishing my post, I requested confirmation from my contacts at the SSPX District House here in the U.S. as to whether Fr. Gleize’s statements reflect the official position of the Society itself, or if they stand in contrast to it; i.e., against the position currently held by Bishop Fellay.
Thus far, I’ve received no response, which seems to all but confirm my initial impression that it is the latter and not a “major clarification” from the Society itself.

If anything changes in this regard, I will let you know.



At this, I’d like to take a closer look at certain of the propositions that Fr. Gleize set forth in support of his argument to see just how reasonable they are, or not.
Perhaps the most critical point; the one upon which his entire argument rests, is the following:
“As we have already explained, our goal is for Tradition to recover all of its rights in Rome. This goal is first in our intention…”
I’m not so sure that the primary “goal” of the Society is the conversion of Rome.
Certainly, the conversion of Rome is a goal, but at least insofar as I am aware, the SSPX has never articulated this as its raison d’ê·tre.
On its website under the heading, What is the Society of St. Pius X, we find:
“The Society of St. Pius X is an international priestly society of common life without vows, whose purpose is to train, support, and encourage holy priests so that they may effectively spread the Catholic Faith throughout the world … Together they seek the goal of the priesthood: the glorification of God, the continuation of Our Lord’s redemptive work, the salvation of souls. They accomplish this by fidelity to Christ’s testament, the Holy Sacrifice of the Mass.
Indeed, striving for Tradition to recover all of its rights in Rome is intimately related to the Society’s mission, but the bottom line purpose of its existence is the salvation of souls.
This also happens to be the supreme law of the Church and the very reason why the SSPX can legitimately lay claim to supplied jurisdiction.
In support of his position, Fr. Gleize provided the following quote of Archbishop Lefebvre:
“What interests us first of all is to maintain the Catholic Faith. That is our combat. So the canonical question, which is purely exterior and public in the Church, is secondary. What is important is to remain in the Church… in the Church, that is to say in the Catholic Faith of all time and in the true priesthood, and in the true Mass, and in the true sacraments, in the Catechism of all time, with the Bible of all time. That is what interests us. That is what the Church is. To be recognized publicly, that is secondary. So, we mustn’t seek secondary things by losing what is fundamental, what is the primary object of our combat.”
First, let me say that I am not a proponent of proof-texting with quotes lifted from the Archbishop’s various statements (an attempt to play the WWMD card that I wrote about some time ago).
That said, I find this citation rather odd given that it in no way supports Fr. Gleize’s argument.
If, indeed, what interests the Society “first of all is to maintain the Catholic Faith,” including all of the things Archbishop Lefebvre listed, how exactly is regular jurisdiction opposed to it?
Obviously, it is not; that is, not directly so.
Fr. Gleize, however, would argue that it does so indirectly as follows:
“The bad effect [of accepting a canonical recognition] is itself double: firstly, the risk of relatavizing Tradition, which would thenceforward only appear as the particular good and the personal theological preference of the Society of Saint Pius X; secondly the risk of betraying and abandoning this particular good because of the ambient favens haeresim which characterizes the Conciliar Church per se.”
Let’s look at these two risks separately.
Question: To whom would Tradition “appear” as little more than a matter of personal preference as opposed to the Faith of all time?
Answer: The ignorant.
Let’s be honest, there are numerous ignorant persons to whom, thanks to the status quo, the SSPX appears to be rebelling against the Church, and even as “schismatic” and somehow less-than-Catholic.
Is it really the case that one form of ignorance is preferable to the other?
Sorry, I’m not buying it.
The second risk, on the other hand; namely, that of the Society somehow “betraying and abandoning” Tradition deserves consideration.
Until rather recently, I had no reason to question the Society’s resolve. Today, however, I must admit that I am deeply concerned about it.
Let me be clear: I do not believe for a moment that Bishop Fellay will ever allow the SSPX to adopt the modernist mindset of the “Conciliar Church;” e.g., positively arguing in support of the Novus Ordo, ecumenism, religious liberty, inter-religious dialogue, etc.
There is, however, more than one way to betray Tradition, and one of them concerns the failure to condemn blasphemy and heresy for what they truly are – loudly, clearly and plainly.
Ironically, it is thanks to Fr. Gleize and his series of articles presenting the official position of the SPPX on Francis and Amoris Laetitia  that I am no longer convinced that the Society has the resolve to speak with clarity and conviction moving forward.
Unless they do, being regularized would be like going on a bear hunt while leaving the rifle at home.
I have always maintained that the granting of regular jurisdiction to the SSPX is a matter of justice; one that boils down to the fundamental question:
Is the Society of St. Pius X Catholic?
The truth is they are, and Rome has an obligation to acknowledge as much and to treat them accordingly.
While I still believe this, I also believe that it is reasonable to wonder whether or not the Society has the wherewithal to uphold their own obligation to the truth.
In other words, if already the SSPX is treading lightly in the face of the unprecedented danger to souls represented by Amoris Laetitia and its “humble” author, how can anyone be confident that they will do any better if regularized?

Lose The Doctrine and You Will Lose Your Soul - Fr. David Hewko

 


          Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)   
Spiritual Wickedness in High Places: Malachi Martin on The End of Religion (As We Know It)
SOURCE
(Note: The following was one of the last interviews by Malachi Martin before his death in 1999.)

      Ever since Nimrod and the Tower of Babel, the Power Elite have never given up on their feverish dream of a One World Government.

      Former Jesuit Malachi Martin's novel, Windswept House (Doubleday/ Main Street Books), offers a lurid behind the scenes look at a cabal of Vatican insiders who want to use the Roman Catholic Church as a foundation for a politico-religious New World Order.

      The plot of the novel involves a group of Church officials who scheme with a group of like-minded corporate executives to manipulate the Church into a ready-made infrastructure for a One World Religion -- a universal umbrella for everybody from Episcopalians to voodoo practitioners.

      The new ecumenicalism is clothed in Globalist garb. The agenda includes promoting issues like population control, environmentalism and secular humanism, which the plotters hope will eventually lead to the complete secularization of religion. 


      The most outrageous and controversial premise of the novel -- described in great detail in the prologue -- is that a ceremony was performed in the Vatican in 1963 -- an occult ritual which enthroned the fallen archangel Lucifer as the head of the Roman Catholic Church.

      Does Dr. Martin believe that this enthronement actually took place in his novel, which could liberally be described as a roman a clef?

      "Yes, it did," he says emphatically. "Beyond a shadow of a doubt in my mind. But now the place, time, hour etc., are all obfuscated to protect the guilty and save the innocent."

      Was it common knowledge in the Vatican at the time? "Not common knowledge," explains Martin. "But I found out about it by being a member of the Vatican circles that learned these things. It's like everything else. I'm sure there are people floating around Washington, and they know an awful lot about what's going on. Someone says, 'how do you know that'? Well, it's just... we know it."

      The story ofWindswept House continues in present day Europe as an international group of conspirators spanning Church and State plots a one world government on behalf of Lucifer. So are readers to infer that no matter what happens, the Pope and the Church hierarchy are bound to serve the fallen angel?

      "No," explains Dr. Martin. "What it means is that for the moment, Lucifer the biggest archangel, the leader of the revolt against God, has a big in with certain Vatican officials. Enthronement doesn't mean that he rules. It means that they did their best to put him there. The ideal would be to have their man as Pope. In that case then Satan would be enthroned."

      The book goes on to describe how two brothers, one a priest and the other an investment banker, grapple with these awesome consequences as pawns in the game. Meanwhile the cabal of Globalist-oriented Vatican officials and European-based internationalists try to corner the Pope into voluntary resignation so that they can get their man in the Chair of Peter.

      This theme coincidentally is also the basis, albeit in non-fiction form, of Martin's book The Keys of This Blood: Pope John Paul II Versus Russia and the West for Control of the New World Order.

      The upshot? A One World Government is a fait accompli, he infers. What Dr. Martin calls the "millennium endgame" is a competition for a new global hegemony by the key Globalist players. What's interesting is that the novel appears to be a seamless transition from his previous non-fiction work. The reader then is put in the position of concluding that the New World Order is a done deal, that a One World Government is here and now and, as the expression goes, it's all over but the crying.

      But you wouldn't expect Globalist agit-prop from a former Jesuit. Or would you?



The Enthronement of Lucifer in the Vatican

 

And Who Is Malachi Martin?

      Author of 15 books on religious and geo-political topics, Malachi Martin is highly regarded and respected as a world renowned scholar.

      Trained in theology at Louvain, he received his doctorates in Semitic Languages, Archaeology and Oriental History. He subsequently studied at Oxford and Hebrew University in Jerusalem. From 1958 to 1964, he served in Rome, where he was a close associate of the Jesuit cardinal Augustin Bea and Pope John XXIII, as well as a professor at the Vatican's Pontifical Biblical Institute.

      Malachi Martin is the author of many best-selling books including Vatican, Hostage to the Devil, The Jesuits, The Final Conclave, and The Keys of This Blood. Also he was a Roman Catholic priest of the Society of Jesus until 1964 when he left the Jesuits. Why?

      "It was a grave decision," he says. "I could see the way the Church was going, the way churchmen were going in their decisions and all the anchors I had for morality and zeal were being undone. Then when the Vatican Council started in 1962, I could see the way the flow of opinion was going in the Vatican by a group of cardinals from Belgium, Germany and France. They were maneuvering the Church into totally new ecclesiology. I couldn't accept this."

      As an advisor to three Popes, Dr. Martin has had his fair share of romanita, that uniquely Roman methodology of connivance and power politicking. "I started off as an advisor on Judaism," he continues. "I was trained in Semitic languages and I spent a year and a half studying the Talmud... Then my superiors in Rome also found that I understood Judaism very well. They wanted someone to explain it, since they were studying the whole question of Jewish-Christian relations. So I was drafted into helping with that."

      And the outcome? "They produced a document in which they sort of absolved the Jewish people of the death of Christ."

      Based on his research? "No, not on my research," argues Martin. "I was only a cog in the wheel. I didn't agree with the final document either. It went too far. And then there were conclusions about the need for Catholics to study Judaism and get to know them better."

So this was the ecumenicalization of the Church that was going on?

      "That's it in one word," concurs Martin. "And I couldn't agree with the total effect of all that because I thought they went too far."

      Dr. Martin was also involved with Vatican intelligence. What did he do? "Just assessing things in Israel, whatever anti-Christianity there was amongst the Israelis. There was and still is. And what was the position of the Arabs. I used to live in Jordan and Lebanon and Egypt. I knew those places very well and could assess the position of the Church and the various Christian communities."

      The many-talented Dr. Martin is also known as a practicing exorcist and has even written a book about the subject called Hostage to the Devil.

      He says he came up against evil as a force in the world in an uncontrovertible undeniable way in his first exorcism.

      "I was in Cairo and it was evil," Dr. Martin recalls.

      "You know you only have to enter its presence, or for it to enter your presence to know that you are in the presence of something which is summarily evil."

      "It's invisible. You can't see it. But you know it wants you dead. Dead. Dead. And in a horrible way," he repeats in a hypnotic voice. "It's touching your very bones by its presence."

      So how does he explain the phenomenon of demonic possession? "Free will", says Dr. Martin. "For the first time in the work we have been doing for thirty-one years in this corner of the globe, during the last ten years or so, we have found young men and women thirty-somethings or twenty-somethings coming forward and saying, 'Listen I made a pact with the devil. I wanted this woman. I wanted this man. I wanted this job. I wanted this money. I wanted this, this, this, and I made a pact and he gave it to me and now I can't get free of him. He dominates my will. Please liberate me. And then people get to it by means of things like a ouija board or by spiritual seances or channeling."

      Malachi Martin is also known as a serious scholar of apocryphal writings, having authored a book called The Scribal Character of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

      (As an impressive mark of his erudition, Malachi Martin even knew about the alternative Abraham and Isaac story in one of the so-called Pseudepigrapha, the Book of Jubilees. In this unsanctioned version of Genesis, Abraham is commanded to kill his son, but not by God. Instead it is Mastema, a fallen angel known as "the accusing angel" as well as the Tempter and Executioner, who tells the Hebrew patriarch to do the dirty deed. To his credit, of course, Abraham doesn't slaughter his firstborn. When asked why the Genesis version omits details of the fallen angel Mastema as the instigator of Abraham's test, however, even Malachi Martin admits ignorance.)

Bernard Janzen "Fr. Malachi Martin: Camouflaged Apostasy"


The Globalist Imperative

      Like the prissy intellectuals of the 1930s enamored by National Socialism (as well as Fabian Socialism), the current fin de siecle version of internationalists are likewise paving their own road to a Globalist hell with good intentions.

      Using the Hegelian model of history, first there was Capitalism (thesis), then Communism (antithesis), and now there's the New World Order (synthesis), risen from the ashes of the Cold War and the formerly 'competing' ideologies.

      International socialism or corporate fascism (aka Globalism) is, in fact, the trendy philosophy for the end of the millennium. In his book Megatrends 2000, Olympian futurist John Naisbitt calls it "free market socialism," a hybrid economic system that combines welfare state policies with multinational corporate business on a global level.

      Globalism, however, as a secular religion, has a dogma all its own. Its primary belief system is based on the notion that the usefulness of the nation-state is over. In other words, national sovereignty is a thing of the past and a One World Government is inevitable. But... this effort, at least for now, must be couched in cryptic language for the unwashed masses. Otherwise they'd get too upset.

      Globalist spokesman Zbigniew Brzezinski, former Columbia University professor, President Carter's former National Security advisor, and founder of the Trilateral Commission spoke at the Gorbachev Foundation's State of the World Forum in 1995, "We cannot leap into world government in one quick step," he said. "(It) requires a process of gradually expanding the range of democratic cooperation." In plain language, that means people must be further indoctrinated.

      Eurocrat Jean-Marie Guehenno hints at this global hegemony or one world totalitarianism calling it an "empire without an emperor." Guehenno wrote The End of the Nation-State (1995) which was called La fin de la democratie (The End of Democracy) in the original French version. Since nation states are obsolete, he claims, "'wise men' capable of thinking through the finite world that has become our common lot" must be entrusted to guide us into what he calls an 'Imperial Age'." Presumably Guehenno counts himself as one of the ranks of "The Wise Men."

      Most striking though is a chapter in Guehenno's book called "Religions without God", which evokes the image of the humanist shaking his fist at an empty sky. The ultimate reduction of this conundrum for the internationalists is to hint at a "global politburo" to run the world as posited by Paul Mazur in Unfinished Business (1979).

      According to Dr. Martin's nomenclature, Guehenno is one of the Transnationalists -- bureaucrats who believe that Globalism is based on "the development of new and ever wider interrelationships between the governments of the world".

      On the other hand, the Internationalists are "individuals who operate from a power base of finance, industry and technology". Together these groups are the Globalists, the social engineers conniving for the convergence of East and West in the so-called New World Order.


Luciferian Geo-Politics

      For a Churchman, Malachi Martin shows a remarkable familiarity and understanding of Luciferianism, a belief system which hold human wisdom, secular humanism if you will, as its paragon and the fallen archangel Lucifer as the Prince who will rule the world.

      Readers ofWindswept Houseare given the impression that the old traditional Catholic Church is good because the protagonists, Christian Gladstone and his mother are defending it, while we know that the Church has been dedicated to Lucifer. Faced with these two alternatives, the conclusion is that the Roman Catholic Church run by Lucifer is good -- a classic (and incredibly sophisticated) double bind, which is constantly reinforced in the reader's mind throughout the 646 pages of the novel.

      "Well, the Church itself has not been given to Lucifer," argues Dr. Martin. "He was enthroned in the Vatican by Vatican officials. That doesn't mean he possesses the Church yet. The Church anyway is an ambiguous term because it either means the actual physical bloc of churches, convents, libraries, academies, parish houses and cathedrals, the physical plant. Or it means the group of faithful in the state of grace whether they are alive in Purgatory or in Heaven. That is the body of Christ."

      "There has always been, since the fourth century, this organization set up by the Emperor Constantine. But that is not essential for the Church. The Church can exist without it. So that mystical body of Christ has not fallen into Lucifer's hands. The organization to some degree has. That's the difficulty."

      What about the book putting his readers in a double bind? You're presented with two choices. Either A. The Luciferian-controlled Roman Catholic Church. Or B. The Luciferian-controlled New World Order. So where does Malachi Martin find himself?

      "The New World Order is definitely won by Luciferian believers," says Dr. Martin. "There's no doubt about that."

      And then he starts to rationalize their modus operandi.

      "But these are men who came to be and are in their actions at least, humanitarian and philanthropic. They want to wipe out hunger and disease. They want to limit the population of the world. They believe the world is headed for mass starvation. They also want to enter into education. They would like to have an alliance with the Roman Catholic Church and with another pope. This one -- they know would stand in their way in regards to population control because he is deadstart against abortion, contraceptives, genetic engineering."

      And what about "The Process" he refers to in his book?

      Dr. Martin replies that it's the "Luciferian Process" of secularizing every religious mind so that the common mind today would be one which regarded the earth as a planned paradise to be built up. There is no God above the skies, no heaven, and there is no hell beneath the earth. It's complete secularization."

      (John Lennon's classic rock anthem "Imagine" comes to mind. "Imagine there's no country," he sang. "It isn't hard to do. Nothing to kill or die for. And no religion too.")

      But do the Luciferians have a timetable?

      "We are now according to the official doctrine of the Luciferians in what they call "the Availing Time". They have a tradition that in these years they can avail of the time to install the Prince, who is Lucifer, as the greatest power on earth in charge of human civilization and adored by men."

      And to what end?

      "To exalt the power of Lucifer. That is the end in itself. It's the Luciferian purpose. If they don't do it in these years, then it is put off sine die, without resolution. They are very keen on getting it done."

      And what are the next steps in this "Process"?

      "The purpose is to secularize education completely," continues Dr. Martin. "And to eliminate from considerations of life and death -- medicine, sociality, finance, birth, development etc., to free that of any religious presumption whatever. To free it from the superstition of religion so that man is dealt with scientifically and humanly. And that is 'the Process'. 'The Process' is to make the human mind accept that... 'The Process' is whereby all education, primary secondary and higher, college university and all public activity is completely rid of all religious presumptions."

      "There is a layer of satanism, of satanist ritual which prepares people for perfect Luciferian adoption. They have covens and sacrifices and rites. The Luciferians have no rites, you know."

      So dabbling with satanism in these rituals leads to a different form of "commitment" which is Luciferianism?

      "It is a preparation for Luciferianism and there are reversals sometimes," claims Dr. Martin. "You will find a crowd of Luciferians having a satanic ritual as a reminder of things. But they have all passed through in a sense and that involves three things: the infliction of pain without flinching, the infliction of death without flinching, and the use of fire."


Windswept House — Message and Subtext

      In Windswept House, Christians and Luciferians clash over the remains of the Roman Catholic Church. It's a controversial and provocative story, a political thriller with metaphysical implications. It delves into the depths of treachery, intrigue and Machiavellian politics at the highest levels of the Church. As a fact-based novel with frequent lengthy asides on real historical geopolitical events like the fall of the Soviet Empire and the Helsinki Accords,Windswept House is a vehicle for one simple message -- the New World Order is here and now.

      While a group of cardinals scheme to force the Pope to resign his office so they'll be able to install a man who will do the Luciferians' bidding, a priest, Christian Gladstone is called to Rome. Cardinal Maestroianni, a power player and one of the leaders of the cabal, enlists the priest to poll bishops regarding closer ties with the European Economic Community. In fact, however, the Cardinal is assessing the timing for a conclave in which the Slavic Pope would be forced to resign because he has become a stumbling block in the Luciferians' plans.

      From the business side, Paul Gladstone, Christian's brother and an expert in international relations working at a Globalist law firm, is also unknowingly recruited to bring the Luciferian plan to fruition. When the brothers find out they are both being unwittingly used in the schemes of the Luciferians, they join forces. Christian then must reach the Pope to tell him that he is being manipulated to abdicate the Chair of Peter.

      Will the Pope resign? And will he exorcise the Church in time?

      The subtext? It doesn't really make a hell of a lot of a difference. 

Father Malachi Martin: End of Christian Civilization



The Future of the Church Militant

      In his novelWindswept House Malachi Martin expostulates his readers regarding the reasons why the "Slavic Pope" (Pope John Paul II) is so ineffectual. But what is the Pope's agenda as he sees it?

      "I think that from the very start John Paul II for whatever reasons, has sought after one thing and one thing only," says Dr. Martin. The formation of what now appears to be in his mind, a universal assemblage of Catholics at the core; grouped with them the Protestant denominations, sects and churches; grouped around them believing Jews, believing Muslims, believing Hindus, believing Buddhists. And that would be a universal religious assembly that could have a powerful dynamic kick in civilization and in solving the problems of men and women today. That is the only thing you can really say this man has sought heart and soul and body with all his travelling. When he went to churches all over the world, member churches of the Catholic Church in all the countries, he was bolstering the reputation of the papacy and he was speaking Catholic dogma, Catholic belief, Catholic morals. But in reality he was reaching out to everybody. He wanted to make friends with everybody."

      And what about the widespread homosexuality, pedophilia and satanic rituals in the Church, common knowledge he avers known to all Vatican insiders? Since as he wrote Christ is no longer honored in the tabernacle, what does he think will happen?

      "Once the tabernacle is emptied of Christ's real presence, then the Church ceases to be holy and therefore it's going to be entered by the opposite power, Lucifer," says Martin. "And this is taking place now. Not widespread, but it is taking place. There's no doubt about that."

      So will the Church fall on its own? "It's disintegrating slowly," says Martin. "As an organization, it's being marginalized sociopolitically and culturally. And religiously, it's weakening and decaying, obsolescing..."

      "If you look at any country today there are three identifiable components of that State. One, the government. Two, there is industry. Third, there are what we call NGOs, the non-governmental organizations. That's everything from Mothers Against Drunk Drivers to the Catholic Church. And they're just simply lumped together, voluntary associations with as much power as they can grasp but of no special importance. Now fifty or seventy years ago, when an ethical or moral question arose, people and governments looked to the churches. Now they don't any longer."

      And yet another sensitive question. Something doesn't add up. Malachi Martin's a priest. He's supposed to fight evil. Yet his bookWindswept Houseis clear evidence that he's thrown in the towel.

      "Well I don't see evidence of having thrown in the towel," protests Dr. Martin. "Because there's a lot I'm being made to pay for, in the sense that the writer obviously likes and reveres this Pope even though he disagrees with him. The writer also believes in the blessed sacrament. He believes in the Pope's infallibility. He believes in salvation. He believes in hell. He believes in the evil of the devil."

      So why doesn'tWindswept Houseend with Christ victorious in the book?

      Does Dr. Martin believe that the Luciferian forces have won already?

      "No. No. No," insists Dr. Martin. "This is an interim book. It ends in a big doubt -- everybody waiting." This must be what they call the European ending -- as opposed to the American ending where all the loose ends are tied up.

      Then the story shifts into "The Devil, Er, I Mean the Editor Made Me Do It". "The publisher said, 'listen the story isn't finished yet,'" says Dr. Martin. "I had a lovely glorious ending. I had a vision. I had a marvellous thing over the Alps. He cut it out."

      This is an actual editorial decision? "Yes," says Dr. Martin.

      But with all due respect, it almost sounds like Luciferian tampering. Not that anyone wants a saccharine ending. So are readers to conclude that the Luciferians won because of the passivity of the Pope in defending the Church?

      "Well, they haven't won yet," says Dr. Martin on a slightly upbeat note. "We're waiting for this man to do something. He's the Vicar of Christ. I know I'm defending him but..."

      "Readers who call me or write me say, what do we do now? I say, read my next book," he continues.

      With Martin's death on July 28, 1999, his suggestion seems to be a moot point.

      "So perhaps editorially," he concludes, "it was the right decision, but religiously it was the wrong decision. I don't know."

      It's been said that "by their fruits, ye shall know them." Malachi Martin's assent to the so-called "process" is the tangible "fruit" of Windswept House.

      Is the novel a prophecy? Or is it just a warning?

      In any case, the New (Luciferian) World Order that Martin describes puts a religious spin to the whole "process" of history.

It's also clear -- the book is a Luciferian masterpiece.

          Comment on 7 Things Everyone Should Know About Low-Carb Diets by TeeDee   
I came to this site after visiting the Intensive Dietary Management site looking for answers as to why I've been waking up at 2:30-3:00am most mornings since adopting a WOE that is VLCHF and doing IF (23:1; 7xper week) to lose weight and avoid T2D. I felt that these 2 sites would give me some understanding as to what may be going on with my 'sudden' and long lasting lack of sleep. I wouldn't mind so much if I felt rested and rejuvenated after 4-4.5 hrs of sleep, but I don't. I need 6.5-7hrs most nights to feel well. I found a comment that gave me some good food for thought regarding sleep, but felt compelled to read through the other comments, as well. I'm so glad I did. I was hell bent on spending the rest of my life striving to eat as low carb as possible. In fact, some commenters on other sites almost had me convinced to try Zero Carb. I still feel that VLC and Zero Carb have their place for many and see no reason why they are not sound plans for different reasons; but in light of my sleep deprivation of late, I will be adding a modest amount of complex carbs in the form of some extra veg to my diet to see if that will work to increase the duration of sleep. But before leaving Chris's site, I wanted to thank certain commenters for opening my eyes to other possibilities in the area of carb consumption. My goal is to be as healthy and disease free as possible while maintaining a healthy weight. This is the same goal as it is for the majority of people who visit these sites. As most know, however, the opinions, blended with 'facts' and wonderful anecdotal evidence, are legion. It is mind boggling how diverse the experiences and beliefs are of those who refuse to simply toe the line and eat the SAD diet (as many special interests would have us do). I can't start reciting the names of those whose comments struck me as incredibly intelligent, balanced and reasonable, because I would surely leave someone out and that would be worse than not thanking each person individually. I think you know who you are and I just want to thank you for your thoughtful and reasoned responses. This site and any books on the subject could just as easily be yours and they have meant as much to me as the great resources that we've all been lucky enough to read. I'm very tired and hope I didn't ramble too long or sound too disoriented, but I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart for taking the time to give of your vast knowledge and insights.

          How To Be a Non-Antisemitic Anti-Zionist   
I've long maintained that is perfectly possible, in concept, to be anti-Zionist without being antisemitic (under reasonable definitions of both "Zionism" and "antisemitic"). The simplest way of doing this is through a sort of principled anarchism which objects to anybody having a state. In that case, "anti-Zionism" is not really a specific identity so much as it is the application of a general principle objecting to the existence of states to a particular state that happens to be Jewish -- and the principle doesn't operate materially differently with respect to Arab, or Japanese, or Mexican states.

Concept doesn't always (or, in my estimation, even often) translate into practice of course. And it is not a form of "censorship" or "cheating" to insist that if one wants to radically oppose the manner in which most Jews believe in their collective liberation, it might actually require hard work and difficult, nuanced judgments demanding deep knowledge of and attentiveness to Jewish histories and experiences. Saying that there can be non-antisemitic anti-Zionism doesn't compel the conclusion that it should be easy to do it.

That said, if you want a sketch on what non-antisemitic anti-Zionism might look like in the wild, you could do worse than reading this post by Jewdas (a British-based Jewish anarchist organization) commenting on the aftermath of the Chicago Dyke March fiasco.

I put this post forward not because I "endorse" it. I'm not an anti-Zionist nor an anarchist, I don't find the existence of Israel to be an embarrassment (though I certainly find a decent chunk of its actions to be so), and I have my share of objections to the "New Diasporism" model they are promoting -- not the least of which is my skepticism that the model adequately accounts for patterns of antisemitism in practice.

But what I can say is that theirs is a principled position that can be argued against on the basis of principled reasons. It is not a ticket good for the Jewish ride only (that brand of anti-Zionism can jump in a lake). It takes Jewish experience and Jewish communal life seriously, and offers a serious accounting of alternatives to collective living through a state. I might not find their alternative compelling or persuasive, but that's a far tamer and more prosaic objection than I'd level at the standard-issue forms of anti-Zionism that, say, justify expelling Jewish marchers because they have a Star of David on their rainbow flag.

Steel's constant search for fresh white meat brings us to another amazing update. Keith Cook's new to the game and Steel's just the guy to break him and his ass into the world of interracial fucking. A candid interview in the car on the way back to the pad reveals a little more about Keith and his private life. However, the only thing Steel's concerned with is poking him in the back with his massive black dick. Keith's mouth wraps around his black master's rod right before his backdoor is stretched wider and wider. Steel's knowledge with new white guys can only mean that his black cock has seen plenty of white asses before....and Keith's is the newest one taking that black-cock-pounding.

How about it's also his first time with a black guy?! Brooklyn has broken in tons of white boys before and this is just another notch on his belt. Brooklyn spits some knowledge at the newbie on their way back to the den of evil. Landon's black-cock-seal gets broken when he sucks on Brooklyn's huge slab of black beef. The next milestone for Landon is seeing if his tight,white ass can take its first black cock. Brooklyn slowly slides it in so that he avoids splitting white boy in half. After a minute it's full throttle on that ass until Brooklyn sprays his Georgia goo all over him.

          Tintagel Castle Footbridge submitted for Planning Consent   

An application has been made for Planning Consent for a new footbridge at Tintagel Castle in Cornwall.

The last time I featured this project was to discuss the six shortlisted competition entries back in December 2015. In March 2016, the winner was announced as Ney and Partners with William Matthews Associates. The scheme is for a new bridge to take visitors onto the Tintagel Castle promontory, a beautiful and deeply historic site. The bridge will provide access for the mobility-impaired for the first time.

You can find the full planning application online, but I've extracted some of the pertinent material to share here.

The bridge gives the appearance of being a very slender arch structure, but in fact it is formed of two giant steel cantilevers, each shaped with a parabolic curve in elevation. In theory, this means that the lower rib carries a constant force when the bridge is subject to a uniform load, allowing for an efficient use of structural steel. In practice, things are never so simple.

The lower and upper ribs each comprise two weathering steel fabricated box girders. These span 66.7m in total. The cantilevers are not quite symmetrical.

The upper ribs are parallel, with the 3.0m wide structure supporting a 2.5m wide walkway. At midspan, these ribs are a mere 175mm deep, impressively slender by any standard. The lower ribs converge towards their foundations, and are also exceptionally small, being only 140mm deep over most of their length.

The structure's strength comes from the depth of the twin cantilevers, which reaches 4.4m near the supports. The upper and lower ribs are connected by what the designers refer to as a "Thomas Telford" detail, for reasons which should be obvious. These spandrel lattices are formed from solid stainless steel bars varying in cross-section from 30mm square to 65mm square.

The structural dimensions illustrate a peculiar talent that Ney and Partners seem to have for exploiting design standards to their absolute limit, and creating structures of astonishing slenderness. The total weight of the steel structure is stated as 66 tonnes, which is quite amazing for this span. It's no surprise given the slenderness to read that the bridge's first natural frequency is 1.6 Hz (well into the vulnerable area for pedestrian excitation).

The bridge deck consists of slates placed on edge in a sand bedding layer, carried on stainless steel pans supported between the primary structural ribs. The pans have drainage scuppers in the soffit, and there is an air gap between the deck pans and the main ribs to ensure the weathering steel can weather properly.

The bridge balustrades consist of stainless steel bars supporting oak handrails, 1.3m high in total.

The bridge foundations are proposed as rock anchors for both the compression (lower rib) and tension (upper rib) elements, with additional rock anchors used to stabilise the exposed cliff faces.

The gap in the middle of the bridge is nominally 42 mm, reducing to 5 mm under maximum temperatures, and increasing to 85 mm under minimum temperatures. There's clearly a degree of controversy to this particular detail, given the risk of a trip hazard or simply the discomfort caused to visitors already made anxious by height and exposure.

At competition stage I observed that significant differential deflections could also be expected when one cantilever was loaded more than the other (by pedestrians or by wind), but the planning submission makes clear that the two cantilevers are in fact connected by shear pins, in a similar manner to a twin-bascule bridge.

I think the poetic idea behind the gap justifies the problems that it creates: the intention is to make intensely apparent the sensation of stepping from the present into the past, of the division between the Tintagel Castle and the mundane world.

The designers have also sought to address the other major objection raised at competition stage, which was to the adoption of weathering steel at an exposed coastal site, where the wind will blow salt spray high above the sea. They have instituted a series of corrosion tests on steel plates exposed at the project site, and the planning submission documents make clear that if these are unsuccessful, the weathering steel will simply be substituted with conventional painted structural steel.

However, there seems to be little acknowledgement of the bimetallic corrosion issue created by the use of so much stainless steel and weathering steel connected together. This combination will tend to lead to accelerated corrosion of the weathering steel at connection points, especially if moisture and salts are present.

Results of the on-site salt spray corrosion tests were due to be completed in June 2017 so it would be very interesting to see the results.

An article in The Guardian focuses on what appears to be increasing opposition to the entire idea of a bridge and captures some of the key issues. If you visit the planning consent website, it's clear there are numerous objectors.

One that's particularly worth reading is from Cornish bard, Bert Biscoe, arguing that whatever the merits of the particular bridge design, they cannot outweigh the damage that will be caused to a site of major archaeological importance. The argument is not about the physical impact of the bridge, but about the very desire of the site's custodian, English Heritage, to increase visitor numbers in such a sensitive site. This is an argument about the merits of preservation over the merits of public access - it is intrinsically anti-populist, but perhaps necessary.

I have been to Tintagel and my initial feeling about the bridge was that the improved accessibility would be very welcome. The promontory is currently accessed via a low-level bridge and a series of awkward steps, which are very difficult for some visitors to traverse. The planning submission notes that some 15% of visitors who buy a ticket for the Castle never actually make it up the existing steps onto the promontory.

However, the bridge is no panacea for this, as there will still be areas which are only accessible via steps or very narrow paths. It's therefore legitimate to consider whether the adverse impacts of such a major intervention are justified by the benefits.

I will be very surprised if the bridge fails this initial planning consent hurdle. However, Scheduled Monument consent will also be required, and I expect opponents of the scheme will petition central government to call in the entire planning application for further review, such is the sensitivity of the site

 I think the designers involved have done an excellent job in addressing the site constraints, within the limits of their brief, and this will be a very interesting project to follow, especially if it proceeds all the way to be built.

          Motherhood lessons: Year 2   
1. A supportive husband makes all the difference between a caring, nurturing mother and a crazy one. Seriously. Many have been the days when I am feeling overwhelmed and frustrated, and in sweeps the hubby and makes everything better. Sometimes he works quietly in the background, doing the dishes when I've fallen asleep without meaning to (again!). Other times he's vocal, full of helpful advice and loving words. But most of all, he makes everything better just by being there.

2. Night-wakings. It gets tiresome, sure, but remember when you would give anything for a little one to hold and to love? Well, you have her now - so cherish every part of it.

3. The Poop Superpower. All kids have it. You know, the ability to poop at will, only to be utilised when Mum sits down for a meal or when you are all ready to finally leave the house for that important errand that had to be done last week.
There have been days when there hasn't been a single poop the whole day, and no sooner have I sat down for my first warm meal of the day, when suddenly there are little hands tugging at my clothes, innocent eyes looking up at me while a sweet voice declares, "Ammi! Poopoo."

4. Little Perfectionist. When your toddler sees you lying down, with your eyes closed, body quite still - it doesn't just occur to her that you're sleeping (or trying to). She must make sure of the truth! She must come and shake you, poke you, repeatedly shout, 'Ammi, Ammi, AMMI!!!' until you groggily open your eyes to see what the ruckus is all about. Having thus annihilated any chance of getting the elusive nap, she will ask in the most innocent way, 'anna anna?' (in English: were you sleeping?) *facepalm*
Not anymore, Baby Girl, not anymore!

5. Kickfest! As soon as you conceive again, your child will miraculously decide that it is not enough to take over the family bed - no, Ammi must be kicked in the tummy repeatedly throughout the night. With as much force as possible.
(Obviously, the mountain of pillows comes into existence much before the third trimester in this situation!)

6. Little Helper. The 18-24month olds love 'helping' around the house. In our case, 'cleaning' with a 'toochoo' (tissue/wet wipe) is an all time favourite. Hand Baby Girl a wipe and watch her wipe down every surface in sight - the only unscribbled-on corner of the coffee table; the sofa; her face; your face (yes, in that order!). Far be it for her to clean in a way that actually helps Ammi. She is desperate to help, yes, but she will do it her way!

7. Randomness. Toddlers are the masters of random. It is not unusual for us to be treated to spontaneous bursts of nursery rhymes, 'Allah Allah' (anything religious like Surahs/Duas, in Baby Girl's own special language) and some very funny statements.
These incidents make great Facebook statuses, and more than make up for the exhaustion that seems to accompany parenthood. I'm going to make a scrapbook of all the statuses I've ever uploaded about my kiddos. One day. Soon. InshaAllah.






8. Best friends. There is something magical about the second year of your child's life. They are eager to use their burgeoning communication skills yet often need a translator (aka Mommy) to get their message across to the world.
This tight bond that the two of you share - the mutual knowledge that you will always know what they mean, regardless of their ability to express it, is precious beyond measure.
For now, you two are the best of friends. May this friendship last forevermore. Amen.

9. Baby weight. If you're still carrying extra weight two years postpartum, its probably your baby's fault. I mean, hey, someone has to finish off all those leftovers! I hate wasting food, and those toddler-sized leftovers seem harmless enough...until you end up eating an extra half meal at every meal.

10. Tete-a-tete. Conversation between a mother and a child is sacred. No one should interrupt just because THEY don't understand what the child is saying. If we don't listen to them when they're young, they won't talk to us when they're older.

11. Sleepy time. Naptimes and the hours after bedtime have a strangely ethereal quality to them - its a kind of peacefulness that comes with the certainty that the little one is safely ensconced in a room, without you having to supervise their 'explorations' and 'inspections' of everything. Needless to say, anyone who dares disturb the peace of the parents....I mean, the valuable sleep of a child...is not viewed with friendly eyes.

12. Are you a perfectionist...or a slacker? I'm a slacker. There, I said it. And I had to make a conscious effort to become one. Being a perfectionist by nature, it was easy to fall into a pattern of constant criticism, complaints and condemnation. This was ruining the general atmosphere of the home and I realized we were getting sucked into a vicious cycle of negativity, all because of me. Because I was unable to let go of the little things and focus on the bigger picture. And so began the long and ardous journey of trying to maintain a positive demeanor - or, at the very least, a civil one, during trying times.

13. Keep calm and carry on. This is an important one for me. When I'm hungry/tired/rundown for any reason, I find I'm unable to handle even the slightest of stressful situations. With a toddler, this means that the little crises quickly escalate into big ones, which take that much more effort to deal with.
Solution: remain level-headed in every situation. Remember, YOU'RE the mature person, not your little one.

14. Grossed-out. NOT. You will reach a whole new level of grossness-handling ability. Recently hubby and I went out for dinner with our nearly 2 year old. She took a good sized bite of chicken, chewed it up, spit it out into her hand to inspect it, and put it back into her mouth. Then ate it. I didn't even bat an eyelid. Hey, if it didn't touch anything but her hand, its fair game. It came out of her own mouth, after all. (See what I mean?)

There are more - oh so many more that I meant to write but I was simply too busy/exhausted to actually write when inspiration struck. But this one is for sure - the LOVE - the completely overwhelming and all-encompassing LOVE for your child - that never reduces. And you think, how will I ever love anyone else with all this love for my baby overflowing from my heart? But miraculously, when He blesses you with another little person, He doubles the capacity in your heart as well. Subhanallah. (As I type this, we await the arrival of Baby Girl no.2. But the love is already present. I haven't met my precious angel yet, but already I love her beyond expression.)

Do you have any Motherhood Lessons to share? If you do, I'd love to hear them!

P.s. Like it? Share it!

          Efficacy of a Computerized Simulation in Promoting Walking in Individuals With Diabetes   
Background: Regular walking is a recommended but underused self-management strategy for individuals with type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM). Objective: To test the impact of a simulation-based intervention on the beliefs, intentions, knowledge, and walking behavior of individuals with T2DM. We compared two versions of a brief narrated simulation. The experimental manipulation included two components: the presentation of the expected effect of walking on the glucose curve; and the completion of an action plan for walking over the next week. Primary hypotheses were (1) intervention participants’ walking (minutes/week) would increase more than control participants’ walking, and (2) change in outcome expectancies (beliefs) would be a function of the discrepancy between prior beliefs and those presented in the simulation. Secondary hypotheses were that, overall, behavioral intentions to walk in the coming week and diabetes-related knowledge would increase in both groups. Methods: Individuals were randomly assigned to condition. Preintervention measures included self-reported physical activity (International Physical Activity Questionnaire [IPAQ] 7-day), theory of planned behavior-related beliefs, and knowledge (Diabetes Knowledge Test). During the narrated simulation we measured individuals’ outcome expectancies regarding the effect of exercise on glucose with a novel drawing task. Postsimulation measures included theory of planned behavior beliefs, knowledge, and qualitative impressions of the narrated simulation. The IPAQ 7-day was readministered by phone 1 week later. We used a linear model that accounted for baseline walking to test the main hypothesis regarding walking. Discrepancy scores were calculated between the presented outcome and individuals’ prior expectations (measured by the drawing task). A linear model with an interaction between intervention status and the discrepancy score was used to test the hypothesis regarding change in outcome expectancy. Pre–post changes in intention and knowledge were tested using paired t tests. Results: Of 65 participants, 33 were in the intervention group and 32 in the control group. We excluded 2 participants from analysis due to being extreme outliers in baseline walking. After adjustment for baseline difference in age and intentions between groups, intervention participants increased walking by 61.0 minutes/week (SE 30.5, t58 = 1.9, P = .05) more than controls. The proposed interaction between the presented outcome and the individual’s prior beliefs was supported: after adjustment for baseline differences in age and intentions between groups, the coefficient for the interaction was –.25, (SE 0.07, t57 = –3.2, P < .01). On average participants in both groups improved significantly from baseline in intentions (mean difference 0.66, t62 = 4.5, P < .001) and knowledge (mean difference 0.38, t62 = 2.4, P = .02). Conclusions: This study suggests that a brief, Internet-ready, simulation-based intervention can improve knowledge, beliefs, intentions, and short-term behavior in individuals with T2DM.

          PHL14/352: The Impact of Electronic Health Information and Computer-mediated Communication for the Coping Abilities of Cancer Patients   
INTRODUCTION: World wide-based Information services are providing an increasing variety in information concerning practically every aspect of prevention, health promotion and treatment for patients, their families and care providers. For the case of cancer, a well-established information and communication infrastructure for an English speaking audience has been developed over the past years. METHODS: Our work has focused on an extensive literature review, identifying publications on the impact of the use of electronic information and communication platforms of the Internet by cancer patients, their families and care providers. RESULTS: Patients mainly log on to major services to receive background information about their particular disease or general introductions about the nature of cancer. The question of how much patients' ability to access to more information about their disease really effects their quality of life is still open. A randomised controlled trial showed that patients appreciated receiving more written information on cancer, although this did not increase their knowledge about cancer. Besides following their wishes or needs to inform themselves via the WWW, patients use more often email and newsgroup bulletin boards for communication. These bulletin boards also function as screening agencies for cancer news. Questions concerning the treatment of cancer and its effects on the family are reported as the most helpful topics on those lists. The three major dimensions of communication goals in online discussion groups can be identified as follows: a) exchange of information, b) social support and c) personal empowerment. These findings are similar to the communication structures identified for face-to-face groups. However, there are indications for some differences between traditional and virtual self-help (VS): more people are involved in VS; VS is open not only for patients but for their families, care providers as well as for involved professionals; VS is accessible around the clock and from every place. DISCUSSION: At this point of time, we can only estimate the importance of the Internet for health communication and health promotion. However, it appears that the Internet is a large information resource as well as a potential support network for patients and their families. In virtual groups, the distance-intimacy-relation seems to be easier to control. Furthermore, membership is independent from regional circumstances and patients with very rare kinds of cancer are able to find peers. The latter leads to the question if VS is particularly attractive to difficult-to-reach patient groups and if it will enhance their access to important resources such as social support. The process of coping with cancer itself seems to be very well supported by such new non-traditional electronic support networks, as long as they fulfil the functions of a community. Some basic problems, concerning the quality of information and the reliability of medical advice available through email, are not yet solved.

           Blue Branch: Business Lessons to Take Away from Wonder Woman    
Friday 30 June, 2017

Inspired by the recent box office smash hit Wonder Woman, Edinburgh-based event marketing specialists Blue Branch have revealed the business lessons they took from the film.

About Blue Branch - http://www.bluebranch.org/

In 1942, internationally famous psychologist Dr William Moulton Marston created the character that would become a global icon, Wonder Woman. Since then she’s gone on to become one of the most popular comic book characters of all-time and an inspiration to millions of people around the world.

Here, Blue Branch have outlined the business lessons to take away from the smash hit movie:

1. Mentorship - and paying it forward

Before becoming Wonder Woman, the civilian identity of Diana Prince sought a mentor because she needed someone to train her to become a warrior. In the comics, Diana returned the favour by mentoring a number of protégés like Wonder Girl and allies like Etta Candy and Paula von Gunther. For entrepreneurs, a mentor is imperative, and Blue Branch urge their staff and contractors to identify coaches and mentors to help them accelerate their career.

Managing Director at Blue Branch, Rania Noumaan believes that entrepreneurs should seek a mentor to train and guide them to help them hone their skills. “A mentor will share their mistakes and business knowledge and that is invaluable,” comments Ms Noumaan. The firm also believes that entrepreneurs should pay it forward someday by taking an aspiring entrepreneur under their wing.

2. Share success

Diana recognises the value that others bring and is humble in victory. Great entrepreneurs don’t steal credit for other people’s work and ideas, and they acknowledge that it is a team effort and celebrate all victories together.

3. Superhuman stamina and endurance are required

Wonder Woman possesses superhuman strength, durability, speed and an enhanced healing power, but Blue Branch believe that her greatest power is her superhuman stamina and endurance. The event-marketing specialists argue that stamina is what makes entrepreneurs great. “The road to success isn’t a sprint, it’s a marathon, those with a superhuman stamina are the ones who make it to the finish line,” commented Ms Noumaan.

4. Remember the power of empathy

Blue Branch believe that one of Wonder Woman's most powerful powers is empathy. In business, the importance of empathy is often underestimated. At Blue Branch, they believe that the most successful leaders have empathy and utilise it to build an A-team.

The event-marketing specialists encourage entrepreneurs to take away the valuable lessons above from Wonder Woman and apply them to their business.

Based in Edinburgh, Blue Branch is an events promotions company that specialises in delivering personalised event marketing campaigns. Their face-to-face approach to marketing has enabled them to build valuable relationships with customers from the first point of contact at event venues.

          Mapping The Potential Economic Effects Of Climate Change    
Climate scientists agree that this century is getting much warmer and that such warming will likely bring economic pain to the U.S., but economists aren't sure how much. Now, a team of scientists and economists, writing in the upcoming issue of the journal Science , says it can at least tell which parts of the country are likely to suffer the most. The researchers started with history: How have heat waves and drought affected the economy in the past? Then they applied that metric to a range of future warming scenarios — from minor to extreme — and mapped the effects, county by county across the U.S. They found that if warming continues at recent rates, it could shave 3 to 6 percentage points off of the country's gross domestic product by century's end — the warmer it gets, the bigger the hit to the economy. Lead researcher Solomon Hsiang acknowledges that the numbers are uncertain by scientific standards but that they aren't really the bottom line. "I think the takeaway message that is

[OOC] Phase 497 (AKA A New Website

Sooooo...the long and short of it is this: InSilico has a new website. I asked awhile ago that people backup what they could of their postings, and this is why. This situation isn't an ideal one, so I'll just jump into a preemptive FAQ here to address the what, whys and hows.Q: What is the new website? A: insilico.online (yes, that is the URL. http://www.insilico.online)Q: Why is the INSILICO website moving?A: Because we are not in a position to have confidence in the Ning platform. The Ning company has changed hands at least a couple times in recent months, and that has coincided with an increased number of technical issues that are slow to be acknowledged...let alone resolved. We also don't currently have access to the original creator account, which means our hands are tied when it comes to supporting it. We don't even know for certain when the next renewal date is. Despite having my payment info on file, Ning has been non-responsive to inquiries. There's also the lack of development, growth, etc. that has contributed to this.Q: Who is hosting the site now?A: We moved to Enjinn. It was robust enough to deliver on most of the features we need, and it could be deployed quickly. Given that we don't know when the Ning might go POOF, we were time conscious here. We wanted to make sure we had something in place quickly that would allow for only a minimum of disruption. Ideally I would have preferred to have everything self hosted, but that takes time and devoting resources into developing. Given the constraints, this was a good alternative.Q: What new features are there?A: Enjinn is forum based, so it is decidedly more robust in that aspect than the Ning is. I've created both IC and OOC forums, blog forums, and a number of other features to try to make it feel more "IC". It is still a work in progress as to how things might be presented, but the core is there. There is also a new wiki, events calendar, chat rooms, profile spaces, and a tag system which allows us to make areas visible only for specific groups/factions. Application forms will be integrated for things like player rentals and group membership. Q: What's going to happen to all the INSILICO content on Ning? A: That's a good question, but there is no definitive solution. I've gotten the basic setting overviews up in the new wiki, and I am continuing to cull the Ning for information and specifics that will be given dedicated wiki pages. I'm also using that to construct a historical timeline which players can use more efficiently than searching blog posts. Again, work in progress here, but nothing that would prohibit using and adding to the new site.As far as player content, pictures, blogs, etc...that's a bit more difficult. Ning has an archive utility, but that requires access to the creator account (which we don't have). However, as far as we can tell, there isn't an efficient way to import content from one site to the other either. At the very least I'm hoping that we can archive the Ning site so that the data is all backed up. Other than that, we're starting from scratch. You can manually post whatever blogs that you want to have on the new site. I do ask that everyone only import what is essential for now (random pictures/video etc that aren't important to the story should be given low priority. With any luck I will be able to get an archive of those up at some point in the future). I know this isn't going to make some people happy, but it's the best that we can offer at the moment. I will keep everyone updated on our progress, one way or another.Q: What happens now?A: At least that's an easier question. Go to the new site, join it, and start using it. We will not be approving any new Ning sign-ups going forward. I may post updates about the new site here too just to cover all ground, but everything else will be done over at insilico.online. So update your bookmarks. For the next couple weeks, there will be no applications or approval needed for "new" members. Since the majority of sign-ups will be for current InSilico players, we don't want there to be any bottlenecks in the migration process. After things have stabilized (and any bugs discovered), we can get things back to normal.See More

          Former child star Ryunosuke Kamiki on his second run of success   



1: れいおφ ★@\(^o^)/:2014/06/19(木) 21:41:44.12 ID:???0.net
Having continuous success from being a child star until turning an adult is a Herculean task. He may have slowed down at one point, but Ryunosuke Kamiki has once again regained his position at the top as a very popular talent.

He joined long running theatrical troupe Jidougekidan at the age of 2 in 1995, and debuted in a commercial in the same year. He then made his acting debut in 1999 in Masahiro Nakai's drama Good News.

He was then known as a "genius child talent", and at 12, starred as the lead in the remake of Youkai Daisensou in 2005 where he won the "Best Newcomer" award in the 29th Japanese Academy Awards.

He starred in his first drama in 2006's Tantei Gakuen Q (NTV) and has constantly been appearing in dramas and movies ever since. One of the biggest reasons why he's survived for such a long time in the industry is his choice of talent agency.

"He's in this major production firm which manages the Southern All Stars, Masaharu Fukuyama, Takeru Sato, Haruma Miura, and Yuriko Yoshitaka, among others. He receives a wide variety of projects, and he'll be secure even when he gets involved in a scandal with a woman as the agency will clean up after the mess. If he were in a different agency, he would have lost offers and would gradually fade out from the industry." - (TV rep)

Kamiki starred in the silver screen adaptation of the best-selling novel Kirishima, bukatsu yamerutteyo in 2012 which sparked his second break. He then went on to make an impressive performance in last year's drama Kazoku Game, which left a stronger impact than the main star Sho Sakurai of Arashi.

He has been cast as the lead in the upcoming suspense thriller drama Henshin on WOWOW which is based on Keigo Higashino's novel, and will be in a number of upcoming movies, namely Rurouni Kenshin -Kyoto Taika-hen/ Densetsu no saigo-hen, Kamisama no iutoori, and next year's Bakuman. It seems that he has thorough knowledge of how to survive in the industry.

QUIZだっけ?財前直見が超能力捜査官やってた推理ドラマで 名門私立小学校の生徒役だった制服にランドセル姿の神木君は魔物と見間違う綺麗さだった。 美し過ぎて、この世のものとは思えないレベル。 ハリー・ポッターの人と較べたら見た目も中身も変な方に行かなかったのは奇跡だわ。
QUIZ, was it? The mystery drama with Naomi Zaizen as the detective with special abilities. Kamiki-kun dressed in his school uniform from this elite private school wearing a ransel was so pretty, you'd think he was a demon. He was so beautiful that you wouldn't have thought that he's from this planet. And it's a miracle that his looks nor his disposition hasn't strayed off the right track, unlike the Harry Potter boy.

Tax evasion, women issues... GACKT has never been short of scandals. Another will be added to the list, as the current issue of FLASH reports that the wife of his backing band member YOU has exposed that her husband was GACKT's ghost writer.

According to the publication, YOU was GACKT's classmate in college and is his best friend. This was apparently common knowledge among the fans. But it's also said that YOU is currently in the process of getting a divorce from his wife of 10 years.

According to the wife, YOU has been composing the majority of GACKT's songs ever since he went solo. GACKT would write the lyrics at times, or would just let YOU do everything on his own, but all credits go to GACKT.

And upon completion of the tune, YOU would charge GACKT's management office which is handled by his sister, and would get paid approximately \500,000 per song. The article in FLASH has also published the copy of a deposit slip and details of the bank book in its article.

"I don't think GACKT will be able to talk his way out of this one anymore. Due to all of the allegations thrown his way, his scope of activities is now only limited to concerts and the theatrical plays that he produces, as it's gotten quite difficult for him to even make a TV appearance. Even if they do decide to make a sequel of Akumu-chan which was recently adapted for the silver screen, I don't think that he'll be receiving the offer to do it anymore." - (TV staff)

It doesn't seem like GACKT's case will escalate to similar proportions with the recent ghost writer scandal of composer Mamoru Samuragochi, but further speculations continue to come up from this, as YOU's wife has also revealed some private matters about GACKT. YOU and the missus lived together with GACKT in his condo unit and she reveals, "I've seen the actress with whom he was rumored in the tabloids. She was living together with GACKT at one point.".

This actress is assumed to be Yumiko Shaku, who coincidentally updated her blog on the 12th, the day of her birthday, and denied any romantic relationship with GACKT (without mentioning his name). People will be on the lookout as to how things will develop here as well.

It's all probably scripted under the name of "production". Kyosen also said before that Taira Hara was informed of the answers for Quiz Derby in the past. Kinya Aikawa also leaked out that Agnes Chan was informed of the answer beforehand in Naruhodo the World. They probably need to create a character who gets all the answers right on these quiz shows.

Internet badasses probably haven't read the original article, but this shi++y wife was essentially saying: "My husband wrote the music for him so he should've been receiving much more than this!". I personally think there's no problem about this since YOU himself has agreed to the composition fee.

          Comment on Proportional Force: Determining Lethal or Less-Lethal Response by Fred Miller   
That can be a sticky wicket. Sometimes you only have seconds to make a determination, but I do agree most incidents do not require the use of deadly force. HOWEVER, it only takes those few seconds for a situation to escalate to a potentially fatal assault. When that time were to come, would the victim still be able to, either physically or mentally be cognizant enough to make that determination? That is definitely a call for more training. The idea is to become situationally aware and always take the extra pains to avoid that potential, whether it's staying away from "that" side of town, or avoiding the darkened area or suspicious groups of people. It's planning for a trip or an outing, asking questions before venturing to unknown or unfamiliar places. Unfortunately, the inexperienced may have difficulty determining a proper plan, or what to look for. Pepper spray is on my "bat belt", along with a multi-tool, bright flashlight, extra mags, gun. I have a knife clipped in my pocket, a small blade in my watch pocket. Almost all of these items can be used defensively before I resort to pulling my gun, but making the determination to advance to deadly force is a much more difficult decision. I really don't know what the answer is. Each case is going to be different for each person. However, it's up to the armed individual to gain the knowledge and training to find out and be as prepared as possible.

I hope yoy guys just stumbled onto this article randomly because the though that any person with even a minimum of IT knowledge could spout such incoherent nonsense is sad. ANY op3 that you buy is CAPABLE of that performance with no outside influence. The fact that you think the phone should run at the same speed when using Chrome as when running bench apps is mindboggling. And then you'd probably wonder why your phone is too hot. Per your logic a cpu fan should always run at full speed regardless of the temperature, and if not - then that would be cheating because it "artificially" cools better when it detects higher temps. Jesus christ people, think for a bit before commenting.

Letter to the editor regarding "GRAS from the ground up: Review of the Interim Pilot Program for GRAS notification" by.

Food Chem Toxicol. 2017 Jun 26;:

Authors: Sewalt V, LaMarta J, Shanahan D, Gregg L, Carrillo R

Abstract
Present letter is aimed at clarifying some critical points highlighted by Hanlon et al. regarding the common knowledge element of the safety of food enzymes in support of their GRAS designation. Particularly, we outline the development of peer-reviewed, generally recognized safety evaluation methodology for microbial enzymes and its adoption by the enzyme industry, which provides the US FDA with a review framework for enzyme GRAS Notices. This approach may serve as a model to other food ingredient categories for a scientifically sound, rigorous, and transparent application of the GRAS concept.

          Silicon Valley's old boy power structure is getting toppled and the repercussions will be huge   

China slip fall soldiers

When Chris Sacca took the stage at the South by Southwest conference in March, the "Shark Tank" judge kicked off his talk by doling out cans of beers to the women sitting in the front rows. 

"We’re going to do this unlike Uber. The women get them first," Sacca said to the crowd of fans that would mob him like a celebrity afterwards. 

The beer stunt was a snipe at one of his early portfolio companies that had come under internal investigation for claims of sexism in the workplace. But now four months later, Sacca himself has issued a mea culpa, confessing that he "personally contributed" to making the tech industry "inhospitable for women" after being accused in a New York Times article of inappropriately touching a woman's face without her consent. (He later "disputed" the accusation.)

The apology from one of Silicon Valley's most visible and powerful venture capitalists comes at a time when the tech industry is confronting its shameful legacy of sexist behavior. It hasn't been a secret that women in technology face sexism, especially in venture capital where women only make up 7% of partners. But until now, the status quo went for the most part unchallenged and the offenders operated with impunity. 

That's why the events of the last few months are so remarkable. The stories of venture capitalists asking women entrepreneurs for sex or touching them underneath the table during pitch meetings have multiplied as more and more women come forward. And it's already having a profound effect. 

In the last month, Uber's CEO was asked to resign after a detailed investigation into harassment and bad behavior among employees and managers at the $69 billion startup. Another investor was forced out of his firm after initially denying accusations of sexual harassment from multiple women. 

Dave McClure, the leader of a famous Silicon Valley startup accelerator 500 Startups, was removed from the day-to-day operations after women came forward with allegations of misconduct. In one case detailed by the New York Times, McClure told a woman that he wasn't sure if he should hire her or hit on her.

Despite Silicon Valley being a place that's promoted itself as a bastion of progressive ideals and meritocracy, each domino being tipped shows that the sexism problem that had rooted itself in the boy's club of venture is worse and worse — and the old school boy's club of Silicon Valley is being toppled as a result.

The problem with power

The gender imbalance in Silicon Valley is well-documented, but the undercurrent of sexism and harassment that is its byproduct has been harder to pinpoint.

To be sure, some of the worst offenders have become "open secrets" among women entrepreneurs. There's wiki pages that list venture capitalists and tech leaders who have been accused of inappropriate behavior. And one startup accelerator, Y Combinator, keeps track of venture capitalists that have behaved badly — harassment or deal-wise — and cuts them out from ever getting a chance to invest as the startups leave its program. 

But it's tough to overstate the precarious path that must be navigated by any woman who wants to pursue the tech dream and create the next Facebook or Snapchat. 

Without having a deep network in Silicon Valley or getting into one of the accelerators, it's hard for women entrepreneurs to know who to avoid or have a support network to turn to if they feel like someone has crossed the line. Even if they do report it, they're often silenced or told to sign non-disclosure agreements so people never find out. 

Meanwhile, the men of Silicon Valley have continued to hold the power. Of the venture capitalist deal makers that fund the next generation of Facebooks, only 7% of the partners at top VC firms are women, according to a Crunchbase study.

And the money follows the same gendered lines. Women received $1.5 billion in funding last year versus $58.2 billion for men, according to PitchBook data. Just think, what kind of world-changing apps and tech products would we have today if women had the same opportunities and influence in the industry as men? 

Make no mistake: venture capitalists control the check books that can fund next America's innovation engine and too often it's been an old boys club that makes deals in hot tub jam sessions or all-male ski trips

The Trump effect

Yet the recent wave of women stepping forward after years of trying to shine light on the issue is finally crashing the power structure. 

Venture firms are scrambling to institute formal policies around harassment. LinkedIn founder and Greylock partner, Reid Hoffman, made a public plea for firms to sign the Decency Pledge to acknowledge that the relationship between venture capitalists and entrepreneurs is the same as a manager and employee. (Yes, Silicon Valley is at the point where its dealmakers are finally publicly promising to be decent to women.)

The public apology from Sacca shows that no venture capitalist can go untouched, no matter how famous or how many amazing deals they've done. In some ways, it's the opposite of the Trump effect: the President was elected despite being on tape saying lecherous things. To this day, he continues to call out reporters and women for their looks. 

Yet the general revulsion to those antics has made Silicon Valley somehow look at its own secret shame. It's harder for an investor to say they are outraged by Trump's treatment of women when they're protecting their own peers who have asked for sex or rubbed a woman's thigh when they're supposed to be making a business deal. 

And while some argue that Trump's behavior has normalized this kind of locker-room talk towards women, in Silicon Valley, its greatest offenders are now getting exposed one-by-one. Venture firms have collapsed. Uber, the most valuable private tech startup, is undergoing a cultural reformation to save its company. Individuals like Sacca are making public apologies for their role in making tech "inhospitable" toward women. The Silicon Valley people and companies in powerful positions aren't immune like Trump has been — and that's only been more clear as more women entrepreneurs speak out against what's been up until now Silicon Valley's darkest secret. 

There will be more dominoes that fall, and more "disruption," as the industry finally comes to terms with this problem. But when the dust settles, you can be sure that the startups, products, and innovation coming from Silicon Valley will be stronger than ever.

          Credit cards are going the way of fax machines

This is a preview of a research report from BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service. To learn more about BI Intelligence, click here.

The modern smartphone is a remarkable device. A single device that fits in your pocket can do all the tasks that once required cameras, camcorders, GPS devices, watches, alarm clocks, calculators, and even TVs.    

But the next change might be the most radical of all—it could eliminate the need to carry cash and credit cards. 

The growing importance of the smartphone as the go-to computing device for every digital activity is having a profound effect everywhere you look, but it’s only the biggest story among many exciting developments in the world of payments:   

  • Apple Pay was first out of the gate, but now mobile wallets are everywhere you look—Android Pay, Google Pay, Chase Pay and even Walmart Pay are making smartphones a real alternative to carrying credit cards. And the potential for mobile wallets to limit a merchant’s fraud liability could help them really take off in acceptance for small businesses.   
  • As consumers move more purchasing online, gateway vendors that can act as a front-end processor for online businesses are seeing explosive growth.   PayPal-owned Braintree grew 111% YoY in the number of cards on file in Q4 2015, while Stripe and Klarna now have multi-billion dollar valuations.
  • Mobile Point-Of-Sale (mPOS) startups like Square and ShopKeep have pioneered a whole new payments niche—accepting payments via tablets and smartphones.   Coupling their transactions capabilities with new apps can revolutionize a small business’ inventory management, marketing, loyalty and even payroll.   
  • Mobile Peer-to-Peer payments in the U.S. are forecast to grow from $5.6 billion in 2014 to nearly $175 billion by 2019 as consumers increasingly skip the hassle of writing a check or going to an ATM.   But smartphone vendors like Apple could cripple the dominant player of 2016 (Venmo) if they make a serious push to own the space.   

If your job or your company is involved in payment processing in any way, you know how complex this industry is. And you know that you simply can’t understand where the next big digital opportunities are unless you know the key players and roles in each step of the payments “supply chain:”   

  • Acquirers
  • Processors
  • Issuers
  • Card Networks
  • Independent sales organizations and merchant service providers
  • Gateways
  • Hardware and software providers

Fortunately, managing analyst John Heggestuen and research analyst Evan Bakker of BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, have compiled a detailed report that breaks down everything you need to know—whether you’re a payments industry veteran or a newcomer who is still getting a basic knowledge of this complex world.

368896817

Among the big picture insights you’ll get from this new report, titled The Payments Ecosystem Report: Everything You Need to Know About The Next Era of Payment Processing:

  • The 5 key events of 2015 that have set up 2016 as a watershed year for the entire payments ecosystem. 
  • The basics of traditional card processing from the start of the process through to the very end.    
  • Why new players and innovations like prepaid cards, store cards, and PIN debit transactions are gaining market share and creating new opportunities.   
  • The effects—good and bad—of the transition to new mobile payment methods.   New players and old have surprising threats and opportunities in areas as varied as carrier billing, remittances, wearables, and more.   

This exclusive report takes you inside these big issues to explore:

  • The critical steps in credit card transactions and how they are changing.
  • The six major types of organizations involved in the payments ecosystem.
  • The significant differences for industry players who operate closed-loop networks and offer prepaid cards.
  • The challenges and opportunities facing hardware and software providers for the payments sector.   
  • The 8 reasons why mobile wallets are growing so fast and how they will disrupt all aspects of the mobile ecosystem.    
  • The exciting possibilities ahead in fast-growing payments subsectors like remittances, connected devices and mobile P2P payments.   
  • And much more.

NOW WATCH: Harvard Business School professor explains the most important problem we have in finance today and how to fix it


          Verizon wants to borrow T-Mobile and Vodafone's consumer data to take on Facebook and Google (VZ)   
  • Tim ArmstrongVerizon wants to license data from its competitors to bulk up its online ad business Oath
  • This initiative could bring together competitors like T-Mobile and Sprint
  • Ultimate plan is to take on Google and Facebook

Verizon Communications wants to challenge Google and Facebook. So it's reaching out to some of its biggest rivals in the wireless industry for help.

Now that the telecom giant has completed its acquisition of Yahoo and rolled out Oath, a division which includes a wide collection of digital advertising assets, it is looking to ramp up its ability to challenge Google and Facebook in the sector. The wireless giant is exploring building a data partnership with other top wireless players, including T-Mobile, Sprint, Vodafone and Telefónica, people with knowledge of the matter told Business Insider.

Specifically, Verizon wants to pool together more wireless consumer data that can be used for ad targeting. A big reason Google and Facebook are so dominant in digital advertising – besides the fact that their platforms reach huge audiences  –is that they have powerful, accurate data sets on millions of consumers that can be used by advertisers to target people with more relevant ads.

When Verizon purchased AOL two years ago, Oath CEO Tim Armstrong spoke openly about the power of Verizon's data and how it, coupled with AOL's advertising technology and large audience, could be used to put some real pressure on Google and Facebook on the ad targeting front. For example, Verizon knows where its customers live, where they travel, and what apps they use, all of which could be used to show people more relevant ads as they surf the web. 

But while Verizon's US subscriber base is close to 150 million people, that's still rather paltry compared to Facebook and Google's massive audiences. So if it can license data from T-Mobile, for instance, it could layer on ad targeting signals from roughly 72 million more consumers.

In addition, licensing data from companies like Vodaphone and Telefónica would help Verizon expand its ad footprint outside the US, an area where advertisers have been pushing for progress, given Google and Facebook's global clout.

There's a lot to be worked out behind the scenes for such a data partnership to fully come to fruition. To date, just weaving together the various pieces of AOL and Verizon has proven particularly complicated. And the level of data that various wireless companies would be willing to license may vary widely. But Armstrong did discuss this plan in his pitch to top advertisers at the Cannes ad festival last week, said people familiar with the matter.

Verizon was potentially hampered by regulatory uncertainty during the waning months of the Obama administration. But since March when Republican senators voted to kill regulations in this realm, companies like Verizon are freer to exploit consumer data for advertising. (Of course, it's perhaps a different story in Europe, where regulators just hit Google with a monster fine).

If Verizon and competitors like T-Mobile and Telefonica did share consumer data, it's a good bet that there would be steps taken to make sure that no personal consumer identification data would be shared between the two companies. Undoubtedly, consumer privacy advocates would scrutinize this project closely.

If this plan proceeds, it will be interesting to see what other Verizon rivals may participate. It seems doubtful that AT&T would jump in, considering that Verizon is blocking AT&T users from logging onto Yahoo with AT&T email addresses, according to TechCrunch. And Sprint's potential wireless pact with Comcast and Charter, first reported by the Wall Street Journal, would only seem to complicate matters.

Officials from T-Mobile and Telefonica declined to comment. Vodafone and Sprint did not return request for comment on this story.

          Vigilante violence backed by supposed enforcers of law: Sonia   

New Delhi, July 2 (IANS) Congress President Sonia Gandhi on Saturday hit out at the government, saying it was seeking to create an India completely at odds with the one that saw the light of Independence and added that "a culture of vigilante violence is actively being supported by those who are supposed to enforce the law".

She also said the idea of India had been thrown fundamentally into question by rising intolerance and malevolent forces who tell people "what they cannot eat, who they cannot love, what they cannot say".

Gandhi also said that "domestic misrule was as great a challenge for our country".

Launching the commemorative publication of National Herald, she further attacked the government, saying: "Though their language is modern, they seek to take India backward, to further their narrow sectarian vision."

"It is one of the ironies of our present times that the soaring reach of their (freedom fighters) work is now sought to be either obliterated or in some cases appropriated by individuals and groups who are in direct opposition to their beliefs and principles," she said.

"Those who stood aside when history was painfully made by sacrifice and struggle, those who had little faith in the Constitution adopted by our country, are now seeking to create an India completely at odds with the one that saw the light of Independence. Let us not forget that they made no sacrifices to shape India's destiny," she added.

Gandhi also said: "Their modern jargon conceals pre-modern beliefs, concepts that are at odds with progressive and inclusive thought, with contemporary knowledge and with a vision for the future. It is our duty to pull away the hypocrisy and reveal the reality lurking beneath."

"This is being encouraged by a culture of vigilante violence actively supported by those who are supposed to enforce the law. Such examples assault our consciousness almost daily," she added.

Gandhi also said: "India has reached a crossroads marked by increasing threats of authoritarianism and bigotry. Where we choose to stand today is where our country will head tomorrow.

"We are in a war of ideas. We wage this war to preserve our ideals, which have built India up as a model of democracy, diversity and co-existence. When these ideals are threatened, India itself is in danger. And if we do not raise our voices, if we do not speak up, our silence will be taken as consent," she said.

Gandhi said: "We have daunting enough battles to fight - against injustice, against poverty, against prejudice, against patriarchy, against malnutrition, against illiteracy, against communalism - but we must also prevail in this greater war for the soul of our nation."

"Ours is a mission to preserve the credibility and sanctity of our institutions in their democratic design. The domestic misrule is as great a challenge for our country.

"At a time when the inclusive conception of our nation is under attack, and the press is pressured or in some willing cases to obey and applaud rather than to question, speaking truth to power is the imperative of our age," Gandhi said.

"Let us work together to safeguard an India in which each person's voice can be raised and heard, most of all the voices of those who question and disagree," she added.

          Whatever Happened to Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes?    
    

               Whatever Happened to Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes? 

If you were to browse through the men's fashion section of every other issue of Rave magazine from the mid 1960s onwards, I guarantee you would soon notice that the names Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes usually follow one after the other on a fairly regular basis. Much favoured by stylish young men about town, Topper Shoes were without a doubt one of the most happening footwear brands of the era. The clientele list included the British pop hierarchy such as The Rolling Stones, The Small Faces and The Who, as well as visiting international acts like Bob Dylan and Johnny Halliday...and yet, they seem to have 'almost' vanished from history. There is barely a trace of their legacy to be found online apart from the occasional Carnaby Street reference and a couple of interesting threads posted on 1960s/1970s style forums. Although in fairness, they have been name checked in several books and slightly elaborated upon in others through the personal stories of former customers, but there is no definitive account of the brand's heritage or any archival examples available all in one place that I am currently aware of. 

Topper shoes were already well established by the early 1960s, with three branches in London, one located at 68 Queensway in W2. and the others at 34 Coventry Street and 57 Shaftesbury Avenue in W1.  But they really came into their own when 18 year old Steven Topper, the owner's son, took the reins and headed for Carnaby Street. I don't have an exact date but he was definitely trading there by 1965, however, the earliest reference that i've come across in print from my personal magazine collection dates back to the 'London Swings' issue of Rave magazine from April 1966. Topper Shoes located at 45 Carnaby St is included in the poptastic illustrated Raver's Map of London along with a brief description of the shop on the next page.

By the following year they were featured in the Gear Guide a 'Hip-pocket guide to Britain's Swinging Fashion Scene' and while still brief, it gives a more detailed account of how things were progressing.  There were now two Topper Shoe shops on Carnaby Street, they were still at No.45 but also had a branch at No.9. The first one catered for men only, it was open Monday-Saturday 9.00 am-6.o0 pm with late night shopping until 7.00 pm on Thursday and Friday, with the range costing between three pounds to ten Guineas.  The other shop at No.9 had a 'beautifully cool interior in weird purply shades' it kept the same opening hours as the previous one but catered for Girls and Men..I've never seen any examples of their Girls shoes but apparently they had a wide and original range which cost from three pounds to five pounds-fifteen for shoes and from ninety-nine-and-elevenpence to seven pounds-nineteen and six for boots! All of the collections, which perfectly complimented the latest clothing for sale on the street were designed by Stephen Topper himself, and manufactured to a high standard in France and Italy.

According to Tom Salter's book about Carnaby Street there were a total of five Topper shoe shops in 1970,  i'm assuming at this point that he is referring to the original three that I have mentioned plus the last two..but then again, maybe not, perhaps some of the originals had closed and there were more branches in Carnaby Street or at new locations? It also says that the owner was a chap called 'Monty Stewart'...So, was Topper merely a business name rather than the actual family surname? While researching material for this post I came across a photograph of another branch at 146 Markham Street in SW3 (undated) and also a piece of film footage which features a Topper Shoe shop located on the King's Road circa 1977 but unfortunately the trail runs cold after that..Which leads me back to my original question...Whatever happened to Stephen Topper and Topper Shoes?

The Raver's Map of London, an illustrated guide to the most happening Boutiques, Discotheques and Restaurants in the Capital as featured in Rave magazine's 72 page London Swings issue of April 1966...and Topper Shoes make the list!  The description of the shop on the following page says that it sells reasonably priced mod designed shoes, and that they always have the latest! Designed by Steve Topper, at prices ranging from £2 10s to £7.

                                                                     
                                                                               
A close-up of the Raver's map, According to this, Topper Shoes located at number 45 Carnaby Street is situated between John Stephen's Tre Camp (No.46) and Ravel (No.44), but in reality it was actually next to Inderwicks the Tobacconist & Pipe Specialist on the left and Ravel on the right. (April 1966).



A rare photograph of the Topper Shoe shop facade at 45 Carnaby Street, you can just about see Ravel, but the door on the left is clearly Inderwicks the tobacconist shop, which intriguingly also seems to be located at number 45 Carnaby St! (perhaps it was an a&b situation?). Photograph © mario de biasi/Mondadori Portfolio via Getty Images. (1966)


Inderwicks, the Pipe & Tobacco Specialist at 45 Carnaby St, illustrated by Malcolm English for Tom Salter's Carnaby Street book in 1970. The company was founded in 1797 by John Inderwick, the original shop located on Wardour Street was one of the earliest tobacconists in London. They may have seemed out of place in the midst of the Carnaby St pop explosion but stayed put nevertheless, resisting several tempting offers on their lease throughout this period. The pop revolution actually enhanced their business rather threaten it, as curious Carnaby St shoppers spilled off the busy pavement and ventured in to buy their specialist tobacco blends, cigarettes and the long clay Churchwardens, Corncobs and Meerschaum pipes which they had been selling for 170 years. Above Inderwicks was the very first Aristos Boutique, it comprised of two rooms on the first floor, a small shop area in the front and a workroom in the back in which Constantinou Aristos ran up garments for girls. The son of a master tailor, he had graduated from the London College of Fashion in 1965 and with the profits from the fledgling boutique he soon opened up his second shop named Blooshp at 45 Newburgh Street, W1. He was eventually joined in the business by his younger brother Achillea, the two went on to expand the company, later renaming it Ariella in 1971.



Bob Dylan photographed by Barry Feinstein trying on shoes in Topper's (1966), He was at the end of a world tour at this point in time, playing The Royal Albert Hall twice while in London on May 26th & May 27th, so this was more than likely taken sometime on or around those dates. There seems to be a wall of fame in the background, perhaps made up of other well known celebrity customers, included are 'The Who' on Bob's immediate left, unmistakable in their pop art regalia.

The facade of another Topper shoe shop, which was included in a short news report for Thames Television in 1977 about the 'health concerns' associated with the fashion fad for wearing platform shoes! I'm not sure of the exact address of this branch, I think this is most likely to be the side view of the building rather than the main entrance, but it is definitely located somewhere on the King's Road. The precise number of the shop could be close to 59b, which is just seen on a door above the head of the interviewer for a couple of seconds at one point. I can't quite make out the name above the premises behind the Topper van opposite, but just beyond is a branch of Irvine Sellars' Mates boutique. Several interviews take place throughout the footage, there is one in particular filmed right outside Topper's with a young chap who seems to be fairly knowledgeable about the customer base, I can't help wondering if this is the manager of the shop or perhaps the elusive Steven Topper himself? I've also included a link to some footage of outtakes from the same film at the end of the post which provides excellent examples of popular street footwear and fashion of the time, lots of platform shoes, boots and wedged heels worn with flares, maxis and minis! Although, there is some discrepancy regarding the correct date via Pathé, who have credited it as 1970 this time round rather than 1977.

                                                   Could this be the elusive Stephen Topper?




An example of a pair of Lace Up, Leather Ox Blood, Bubble Toe, Crepe Wedges with matching suede side panel - which were available from Topper's in Carnaby Street circa 1972/73, they also came in black with a grey suede side panel. I'd be interested to hear from anyone who is still in possession of a pair of these or who knows the whereabouts of a pair for sale, and also any other information relating to  Stephen Topper & Topper Shoes. Note: Also known as/or referred to as Steven and Steve, throughout various original 1960s magazine articles).

          How Online Job Market and Freelancing Can Make Bangladesh a Middle-earning Country   

The recent outrage in online job market and freelancing and most of all outsourcing industry has turned into a revolution. It seems like it is not taking a step back. This revolution that is going on within the young community, for IT freelancing and outsourcing, shows us new prospects to grow the economy of Bangladesh. In recent years, freelancing alone brought more than $20 million into Bangladesh and the amount is growing day by day.

Silent Revolution in Bangladesh

It might make you wonder, how did this happen? It was a revolution that was not instigated by the government for long years. Rather, it happened silently. But, due to recent government’s pledge to put “e” to all activities, things have been fastened in a large scale.

Why did this happen? If we observe the situation in Khulna, then you’ll see that many industries closed down, due to corruption and inability to sustain. The older generation in Khulna is not that well off due to this fact. The younger generation is more educated by the mass, as the older generation envisioned that education will be their only asset in future. The surrounding industry failed to employ them properly. But, they did not sit idle. They had to come up with something that would not make them leave Khulna. So, steadily the revolution unveiled.

But, there are still many problems that haunt Bangladeshi freelancers and outsourcing partners. If they are provided the opportunity, the freelancing and outsourcing revolution will take several steps ahead. But, to provide this opportunity, government has always been very conservative. Just take an example of SEA-ME-WE fiber optic cable connection. It was denied twice by late governments on the fear of national data privacy. But, it was realized that, it was really a very conservative decision we ever made. Currently, the internet infrastructure is stronger than before. But, ability to access premium online service still has some way to go. And this is actually not that long.

Prospects

Outsourcing is a $3.4 Trillion industry and we are not even taking even 1% of it. Our neighbor India is taking major share of these outsourcing opportunities. The situation we have here in Bangladesh was created 10 years ago in India. So, it is obvious that we still are a decade backward, in terms of India. But, that does not mean we have to stay a decade back. We have the know-how and the skilled forces that can take us a generation ahead, if we can give them the opportunity. Otherwise, with countries like Vietnam and Philippines that are directly competing with us, will gain better momentum than us. But, imagine if we could take just 1%, it could be way more than what we earn through Garments Industry and remittance from non-resident citizens.

Bringing Women in

If you look at our societal norm, you’ll find that we have not yet grown into a liberal society, even after many changes. The average poor and middle class society aka the major portion of our population is still very conservative. We still have gender-based separate sitting arrangement in bus. Most women in poor societies and some women in middle class societies are still not allowed to roam freely in society. 

Women are the first gender that gets the priority for education dropout. Those who make it, also dropout from career, when they have their first, if not, second child. No one can say that, this change in career as good or bad. Because, raring child and taking care of the family by women has been a century (if not millennia)  long tradition. Even in advanced countries, women cannot avoid this phenomenon. So, ultimate center of concentration of a woman becomes her home.

But, they are the weaker half (48%) of our population. I mean, weaker by the number not by merit or skill. If you can not engage this portion of the population in earning, then there is no way a nation can grow. But, accepting our norm of the society, how can we generate jobs for them without making them leave home? 

I think you all know the answer.

Bringing Senior Citizens in

Again another portion is the senior citizens who become dependent on the earning member in the next generation. Because, they are not suitable to do any physical work. So, they jump out of the earning member population and usually never come back. But, how can we make them earning member without having to make them do physical work? 

I think you all know the answer.

Bringing the Handicapped in

Sometimes we think that the handicapped are the weakest portion of the population. But, we should remember that they are not 100% handicapped. I have seen many handicapped people showcasing extreme knowledge, talent, and skills. But, they are not capable of doing regular jobs. Accepting their handicap situation, how can we bring them into the money earning demography? 

I think you all know the answer.

Bringing All of Them in

When we are talking about Online Job Market, Freelancing and Outsourcing, we are mostly talking about the youths. Yes, they are our future. But, think how far we can go with freelancing and outsourcing, if we can involve all the unemployed population in Bangladesh. i.e.

  1. The Unemployed Youths
  2. Women (Homebound, Conservative, Mothers, etc)
  3. Senior Citizens and
  4. Handicapped people.

The Dream to be a Medium Earning Country

So, to live the dream as a medium earning country, Bangladesh government should try it’s best to make this industry grow as fast as it can. One of the major barriers to the Freelancing and Outsourcing industry is the online and international payment system. Currently, Payza has been introduced, but Paypal and other sorts of online and international payments are still not possible. Bangladesh Bank here has been playing a conservative role for long time. But, things are progressing and we might see them available in near future. 

Yes, there are defaulters, corrupter  and money launderers. But, for these filthy people, the vast opportunity for the whole population cannot wait. The Government’s job is policing, not making vast opportunity slip out of the hands of the citizens.


          Best Ways to Use Social Networks in the Market   

Guest Post Disclaimer: The opinions and knowledge posted in this article is solely of the guest author.

Because social networks are cost effective and easy to focus, more and more businesses and individuals are focusing too much on social networks to publicize their business products and services. But the main problem here is– most businesses are relying on ineffective tactics to market their products to social networks. The following guide explains you the best ways to use social networks to market.

Best Ways to Use Social Networks in the Market

Avoid Quantitative Approach in Having Social Media Presence

Most people believe that having too many social networks for their business help in receiving lots of website visitors, but this may not fetch you good result since you need to have a continuous online presence on this networking site to benefit from it.

Investing in Online Marketing

Secondly investing online marketing should be done very carefully because you must make your investment only where there is a scope of getting higher ROI. You should be able to minimize your risk associated with your investments. Finally, to get good results you should not completely rely on social networks.

When to Start?

If you are looking to take advantage of promoting your business on social networking sites like Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+, Tumblr and so on then before opening your business account in these social platforms, determine whether you are able to manage all these accounts at a time, only then start your social marketing.

Choose Best Platform

Investigate which platform can support to communicate with your existing and potential customers. And then try to build strong relationship with your customer by understanding their needs and what they want from you.

Post Articles

Post articles on social sites and your website; include relevant information on your products or services in the post that you write to market. To make your post social friendly, you can also include a short author bio at the end of every post and give a backlink to your social profile.

Add People

Try to add more people into your social networking sites, know the people who are interested towards your business products and services.

B2B Marketing

Join various forums and you can even take advantage of B2B marketing sites to share your ideas and to provide advice on problems and answering any questions of your site readers.

Promote

Promoting only your website and looking for people to read your message is not good, you should also visit networking profiles of other people who are connected with you and read their blog or posts.

Respond

Always respond to your posts in a friendly way and promptly to their comments. This can help you bring more potential customers.

Social Networks

Do not just create social networks for the sake of creating an account and hype your business, instead try to integrate your traditional work with online marketing. This can supplement both traditional and online campaigns.

          What You Need to Know About Operation Intern   
By Fargo Inc!
With applications now open for the North Dakota Department of Commerce’s Operation Intern program, here’s what we think you should know about the highly beneficial program that’s been helping North Dakota businesses hire interns more easily for nearly a decade.

What It Is

  • Operation Intern is a program administered by the North Dakota Department of Commerce designed to expand the number of new internship, work experience and apprenticeship positions with North Dakota employers.
  • The program has money set aside for targeted industries—energy, advanced manufacturing, value-added agriculture, tourism and technology-based businesses—as well funds set aside for high-wage, high-demand positions.
  • The program offers private businesses up to $30,000 every two years to fund internships at their company. Funding rounds will be done this year, with each company limited to a maximum of five interns per funding round.
  • The maximum amount of Operation Intern funds an employer can receive is $15,000 per funding round, or $30,000 per biennium.
  • This year, the program is introducing something new and has set money aside for new apprenticeship positions.
What Operation Intern Pays
Matching funds under the program are limited to a maximum of $3,000 per term, per internship/work experience/apprenticeship opportunity. Students may receive up to a maximum of $6,000 from the Operation Intern program, depending on funding.
What You Pay
Of the compensation, a one-to-one match or more to the student is required. Compensation may include wages and stipends, tuition and fees, books, housing assistance, or tools and equipment. Documentation of wages paid and/or other compensation provided must be maintained by the employer and made available upon request.

Who It’s For

The employer is responsible for selecting and hiring the new student. To qualify, the internship position must be related to the student’s program of study unless they are a high school student. Employers must select a student who is either:
  • A high school junior or senior
  • Enrolled in a North Dakota college or university and taking at least six credits during the internship or the semester prior to the internship
  • A student enrolled in a registered apprenticeship program
All internship, work experience, and apprenticeship experiences should provide opportunities for the student to develop patterns of professional behavior and skills, apply academic knowledge to work situations, and be related to the student’s field of study or career goals.
The program may, on a case-by-case basis, approve the subsidization of a student enrolled in a college or university located outside of the state. Reasons for approving an out-of-state student may include:
  • The course-of-study not being provided by a North Dakota college or university
  • North Dakota high school graduate who is attending an out-of-state school
An employer can select the intern of their choice, but they should be aware that they might not qualify for the program.
It is recommended that the student be:
  • A U.S. citizen or have permanent legal immigration status
  • In a program of study at least two years in length
  • Have an overall GPA of at least 2.5
Priority is given to new startups, companies that haven’t participated in the program, and new internship or apprenticeship programs.

How to Apply

This biennium will have 2 funding rounds:
  • First round: May 29, 2017 – March 31, 2018
    – Applications accepted May 1 – May 19, 2017
    – Any funds not used in that timeframe will be released and added to funding for second round
  • Second round: May 1, 2018 – June 30, 2019

          Commerce Awards Grant for Williston State College Workforce Training Program   
By ND Commerce
The North Dakota Department of Commerce announced workforce enhancement grants for Williston State College (WSC) totaling $230,000. Workforce enhancement grants enable two-year colleges to apply for funds to help create or enhance training programs that address workforce needs of North Dakota’s private-sector employers. Projects require a dollar-for-dollar match of all state money with private funds. 

WSC received this grant to develop a “Safe P” training program and a “Well Sharp” training program. The Safe P training includes safety training for lease operators and pumpers to include dump, back pressure and stuffing box processes. The Well Sharp training will train employees at a drilling site on how to recognize, prevent and address well blow-out situations. WSC secured matching funds totaling $230,763 for the programs.  

“Companies continue to train current and future employees for high-demand positions for their industry,” Deanette Piesik, CEO of TrainND, a division of Williston State College. “Both programs allow individuals to upgrade their skills and knowledge to maintain well sites.” 

Grant funding may be used for curriculum development, equipment, recruiting participants, and training and certifying instructors. Funds may not be used to supplant funding for current operations. 

“The workforce enhancement grants help increase the capacity of our higher education institutions like WSC to provide a consistent stream of qualified workers educated right here in North Dakota,” said Wayde Sick, Workforce Development Director at the North Dakota Department of Commerce. “The partnership of industry, education, and state and local governments is needed to meet the developing workforce needs of North Dakota.” 

The Workforce Enhancement Council reviews all proposals and provides funding recommendations to the commissioner of the North Dakota Department of Commerce. The council consists of the private-sector membership of the North Dakota Workforce Development Council, the state director of the Department of Career & Technical Education, and the division director of the Workforce Development Division of the North Dakota Department of Commerce, who serves as the chair.

          New Federal Regulations for Small Drones Receive Positive Feedback from North Dakota Industry Members   
By Grand Forks Herald
The Federal Aviation Administration debuted a set of long-awaited regulations governing the use of unmanned aircraft Tuesday that were met with fanfare from local and national members of the industry.

The rules are targeted at small unmanned aircraft, also known as drones, used for commercial and public applications and contain requirements for their operation and qualifications for their pilots.

David Dvorak, CEO of Field of View in Grand Forks, has been waiting years for the FAA to finalize regulations for unmanned aircraft.

"The level of restriction up until this point has been pretty horrendous so this seems like a walk in the park compared to what we have been working under," he said of the new requirements.

The rules, formally known as Part 107 of the Federal Aviation Regulations, will take effect in late August, and will apply to drones weighing less than 55 pounds.

These regulations pave the way for commercial operations utilizing unmanned aircraft, which currently are prohibited unless an exemption is obtained from the FAA. The agency had granted more than 5,000 exemptions prior to the unveiling of Part 107 — about 20 of which have gone to North Dakota-based companies.

Industry experts say the rules' release spells good news for the economy, with estimates predicting more than 100,000 jobs could be created and $82 billion generated over the next 10 years as a result.

Drone operations by public agencies such as sheriff and police departments also are included in the new regulations. Previously, these groups needed to acquire a certificate of authorization that spelled out conditions for flight.

"We are part of a new era in aviation, and the potential for unmanned aircraft will make it safer and easier to do certain jobs, gather information and deploy disaster relief," U.S. Transportation Secretary Anthony Foxx said in a statement Tuesday.

Requirements

The first draft of the rules for small unmanned aircraft was published last year, but regulations in general have been a long-awaited by those in the industry.

In 2012, the FAA received a congressional mandate to integrate UAS technology into national airspace by September 2015. The deadline came and went with no rules finalized, leaving the industry to await this week's release.

Dvorak and others predict the news will inspire more confidence in the technology and produce an uptick in economic activity as businesses prepare for the rule to become active.

"As a company that provides software and hardware for drone operators, I'd imagine this release will give a lot more people confidence to start investing in equipment, training and software in the next 60 days," Dvorak said.

Come August, drone pilots can fly at an altitude of 400 feet or less, cannot fly directly over people not involved in a flight operation and must maintain a safe distance from airports unless permission is received from the facilities in Class B,C, D and E airspace.

Part 107 prohibits flying unmanned aircraft in Class A airspace, which spans from 18,000 to 60,000 above sea level. Flights are allowed in Class G airspace, which is considered uncontrolled airspace, without permission from air traffic control.

Drone pilots must be certified and at least 16 years old unless supervised by someone holding a remote pilot certificate.

The certificate would be obtained by passing an initial aeronautical knowledge test at a FAA-approved knowledge testing center or through other means if a person has an existing non-student Part 61 pilot certificate. Background checks on all remote pilot applications would be conducted by the Transportation Security Administration prior to issuance of a certificate.

Other requirements include always operating a drone within line of sight, flying during the day, not exceeding a groundspeed of 100 mph and avoiding reckless operations.

Missing pieces

Though Part 107 lays groundwork for the continued growth of unmanned industry, some found there still are important provisions missing from it.

"While the approved regulations are a step in the right direction for the drone industry, we still have a long way to go, specifically when it comes to long-distance or beyond-visual-line-of-sight drones," Tero Heinonen, CEO of Sharper Shape, said in a statement.

Heinonen, whose company operates out of Palo Alto, Calif., and Grand Forks, and others see beyond-line-of-sight as crucial to the continued development of drone technology.

Those wishing to conduct operations beyond line of sight or at night need to receive a waiver from the FAA, but it's likely that will be a temporary fix much like the commercial exemption process.

"With this new rule, we are taking a careful and deliberate approach that balances the need to deploy this new technology with the FAA's mission to protect public safety," FAA Administrator Michael Huerta said in a statement. "We're already working on additional rules that will expand the range of operations."

Overall, reaction to the rule's release has been favorable with advocacy groups such as the Association of Unmanned Vehicle Systems International and the Academy for Model Aeronautics commending the FAA in allowing the industry to continue advancing.

Easier access to the industry does spell more competition for those already established within it.

"The challenge isn't over, it's really just beginning," Dvorak said. "Now everyone is kind of on an equal playing field. There have been companies that have come and gone over the years here, but now everyone has the opportunity to generate income from day one.

"It'll be interesting to see how the market handles that."

          Global and Local Connectivity Differences Converge With Gene Expression in a Neurodevelopmental Disorder of Known Genetic Origin   
Abstract
Knowledge of genetic cause in neurodevelopmental disorders can highlight molecular and cellular processes critical for typical development. Furthermore, the relative homogeneity of neurodevelopmental disorders of known genetic origin allows the researcher to establish the subsequent neurobiological processes that mediate cognitive and behavioral outcomes. The current study investigated white matter structural connectivity in a group of individuals with intellectual disability due to mutations in ZDHHC9. In addition to shared cause of cognitive impairment, these individuals have a shared cognitive profile, involving oromotor control difficulties and expressive language impairment. Analysis of structural network properties using graph theory measures showed global reductions in mean clustering coefficient and efficiency in the ZDHHC9 group, with maximal differences in frontal and parietal areas. Regional variation in clustering coefficient across cortical regions in ZDHHC9 mutation cases was significantly associated with known pattern of expression of ZDHHC9 in the normal adult human brain. The results demonstrate that a mutation in a single gene impacts upon white matter organization across the whole-brain, but also shows regionally specific effects, according to variation in gene expression. Furthermore, these regionally specific patterns may link to specific developmental mechanisms, and correspond to specific cognitive deficits.

          Dissociating the Neural Basis of Conceptual Self-Awareness from Perceptual Awareness and Unaware Self-Processing   
Abstract
Conceptual self-awareness is a mental state in which the content of one's consciousness refers to a particular aspect of semantic knowledge about oneself. This form of consciousness plays a crucial role in shaping human behavior; however, little is known about its neural basis. Here, we use functional magnetic resonance imaging (fMRI) and a visual masked priming paradigm to dissociate the neural responses related to the awareness of semantic autobiographical information (one's own name, surname, etc.) from the awareness of information related to any visual stimulus (perceptual awareness), as well as from the unaware processing of self-relevant stimuli. To detect brain activity that is highly selective for self-relevant information, we used the blood-oxygen-level-dependent (BOLD) adaptation approach, which goes beyond the spatial limitations of conventional fMRI. We found that self-awareness was associated with BOLD adaptation in the medial frontopolar-retrosplenial areas, whereas perceptual awareness and unaware self-processing were associated with BOLD adaptation in the lateral fronto-parietal areas and the inferior temporal cortex, respectively. Thus, using a direct manipulation of conscious awareness we demonstrate for the first time that the neural basis of conceptual self-awareness is neuroanatomically distinct from the network mediating perceptual awareness of the sensory environment or unaware processing of self-related stimuli.

          The Abnormally Normal Science Of Sinkholes   
When a Florida man vanished into a massive sinkhole that opened underneath his bedroom in February, the case garnered national attention. Every so often, tragedies like this put sinkholes in the spotlight. Researchers say that minor sinkholes occur all the time around the world without much notice. Lewis Land, a hydrologist at the New Mexico Bureau of Geology and Mineral Resources, is one of the organizers of the 13th Multidisciplinary Conference on Sinkholes and the Engineering and Environmental Impacts of Karst . Karst is a term for landscapes made of porous, soluble rock — areas where sinkholes are naturally prone to occur. Since 1984, geologists, hydrologists, biologists and other researchers have gathered every few years to share knowledge and research about karst terrain. Land talks with NPR's Celeste Headlee about what happens when Earth swallows things.

          A Silicon Valley for Drones, in North Dakota   
By The New York Times
“California and New York want what we’ve got,” said Shawn Muehler, a 30-year-old Fargo resident, gazing at a horizon of empty fields, silos, windbreak trees and hardly any people. A winged craft traces the air, mapping a field with pinpoint accuracy for his start-up, a drone software company called Botlink. “They like drones, but they’ve got a steep learning curve ahead.”

For years, entrepreneurs have come here to farm and to drill for oil and natural gas. Now a new, tech-savvy generation is grabbing a piece of the growing market for drone technology and officials want to help them do it here, where there is plenty of open space and — unlike in other sparsely populated states — lots of expertise already in place.

Silicon Valley has the big money and know-how, Mr. Muehler and others say, but North Dakota can take unmanned aerial vehicles, as the officials prefer to call drones, from a fast-growing hobby to an industry. And just as Silicon Valley got its start with military contracts, entrepreneurs and cooperative universities, they believe they can do the same with drones.

“The potential up here is tremendous,” said Jack Dalrymple, the state’s governor. “It’s not about supporting a company or two; it’s creating the leading edge of an industry.”

North Dakota has spent about $34 million fostering the state’s unmanned aerial vehicle business, most notably with a civilian industrial park for drones near Grand Forks Air Force Base. The base, a former Cold War installation, now flies nothing but robot aircraft for the United States military and Customs and Border Protection.

Right now, private sector drones are where personal computers were in the 1970s: a hobbyist technology waiting to become mainstream. The technology research firm Gartner says that, barring regulatory hurdles, the United States drone business could be worth $7 billion in a decade.

Companies are moving fast. Last month, Amazon released a video showing its planned delivery drone, and companies like Google and Facebook are working on big drone projects. DJI, a Chinese company that is the world’s largest maker of small drones, was funded last spring at a valuation of $10 billion.

Small drones may bedevil cities with privacy concerns, even landing on the White House lawn, but rural states with farming, oil and rail lines see many practical reasons to put robots in the sky. Infrared imaging can judge crop health. Cameras can spot leaks and cracks in pipelines. Smaller copters can inspect windmill blades. Livestock can be located easily.

Judging from Mr. Muehler’s proving grounds, if the occasional experimental craft crashes, it is unlikely to hit much beyond dirt. And with money, expertise and need here, people will keep trying.

Grand Forks Air Force Base, 80 miles north of Fargo, has been an all-drone base since 2013. Big Global Hawk unmanned aerial vehicles, made by Northrop Grumman, fly reconnaissance missions from the Yukon to Venezuela from there. 

In a smaller brick building in Fargo, Mr. Muehler was once part of a North Dakota Air National Guard unit that flies missions over the Mideast and Afghanistan.

Customs and Border Protection uses the Grand Forks field to patrol from Seattle to the Great Lakes with slightly smaller Predator drones. Sometimes those pilots take over from their Customs counterparts in Texas, patrolling the Rio Grande from screens 80 miles south of the Canadian border.

Where B-52 bombers stood ready with nuclear bombs in the Cold War, the country’s first commercial unmanned aerial vehicle industrial park is under construction. Northrop Grumman and General Atomics, the Predator maker, are taking space to train pilots for international sales of the craft.

Other businessmen are looking at modifying their craft for things like high-altitude surveillance of railroad tracks and pipelines. Involta, an Iowa-based operator of data centers that has already created a windmill inspection business in Grand Forks, is looking at building facilities specialized in collecting aerial information.

A company called Field of View, near the planned site of the industrial park, makes aerial sensing equipment. An outfit called the Unmanned Applications Institute is working with providers away from North Dakota on things like local drone manufacture and warehousing.

Nearby, the University of North Dakota, which already trains many of the nation’s commercial pilots and the air traffic controllers of some 18 countries, has 200 students learning to fly drones in a four-year program that started in 2009; 61 students have graduated from it. North Dakota State University, in Fargo, has also started teaching drone courses.

Besides military contracts and educational talent, North Dakota also has high-tech talent. In 1999, Amazon purchased an online seller of tools and home improvement gear in Grand Forks, and the company now develops customer service software there. In 2001, Microsoft paid $1.1 billion for Great Plains Software of Fargo, and it now has an office there.

The area has thousands of software engineers and not a few millionaires itching to get into the next big thing.

“Every top engineer in all of Fargo works for Botlink,” Mr. Muehler boasted. “We have the top 10 engineers in town.”

Mr. Muehler, who was educated as a pilot at North Dakota State, started on what became Botlink while flying missions from the brick building in Fargo. Governor Dalrymple refers to the military site as “once a well-kept-secret facility,” since its purpose has become common knowledge in the city of about 115,000 people.

One night in early 2014, Mr. Muehler saw a report on Fox News about a hobbyist drone that flew into the airspace at La Guardia Airport in New York. That’s when he hit upon the idea for his business.

“I figured there has to be some kind of software that can give awareness, let a drone know about things like boundaries and weather,” he said.

Alex Kube, a high school friend who was working at the same facility, started making the software. Seven months later, he spoke at a meeting of local entrepreneurs and collected $500,000 in angel funding from local investors. Botlink was formed several months later when Mr. Muehler met Terri Zimmerman, a former chief financial officer at Great Plains who grew up on a farm near the Canadian border.

“We want to be the Microsoft of the industry,” said Ms. Zimmerman, who is now Botlink’s chief executive, and runs another company, Packet Digital, involved in low-power semiconductors used for, among other things, military drones.

So far, the company has raised $3 million more from private investors. “That’s like $14 million in Silicon Valley,” Ms. Zimmerman said.

          Incentive for Advanced Manufacturing: Out of Step with the Times   
By Area Development
In any industry, constant change is a fact of life. Nowhere has that been truer than in manufacturing, where automation and other process improvements have drastically reduced the number of workers needed to achieve a given level of productivity. Large manufacturing plants, which might have once employed 500 or more workers, may now function with 100, 75, or fewer highly skilled employees. 

Have state governments that use tax breaks and other inducements to attract industrial projects updated their incentives to reflect these changing times? Conversations with site selection consultants and state officials paint a varied picture. 

A Decline in Number of Jobs Per Project
While “high-labor content projects are still coming to the U.S., there is an advanced manufacturing meta-trend: replacing man-hours with kilowatt-hours,” says Darin Buelow, a principal with Deloitte Consulting. “Machines are doing more work, and the average number of jobs per project has been going down for some time.” 

One example of the modern metrics: Monogram Food Solutions, a major manufacturer of meat snacks, is expanding its business into the city of Schulenburg, Texas. The new plant will only employ 30 workers, but involves a total capital investment of nearly $3 million. The city of Schulenburg was awarded $750,000 from the Texas Capital Fund (TCF) to finance infrastructure upgrades to support the new facility. 

Buelow says he has long contended that state incentives “have not kept pace with the times; for example, tax incentives that don’t kick in until 300 jobs have been created. If you’ve got $100 million capital investment but only create 100 jobs, you don’t qualify. Some states see proposals for (projects creating) 100 or 150 jobs all day long, but can’t use that program.” 

Buelow believes there should be a more flexible posture when it comes to manufacturing. “Incentives need to be more accessible by advanced manufacturers,” he explains. 

Jeff Forsythe, a principal with Greenville, S.C.-based McCallum Sweeney Consulting, notes that different locations often have different priorities when using incentives such as tax breaks. “Some locations…where unemployment is a major concern…are more in interested in jobs. More urban areas that have full employment — less than 4 percent unemployed — are just trying to enhance the tax base and don’t mind highly automated facilities that involve high capital investment.” 

Although they employ relatively few people, large industrial projects (especially data centers) that are capital-intensive and consume large amounts of electricity can often qualify for additional incentives offered by utilities — particularly in the southeastern U.S., Forsythe says. In addition to rate reductions, some utilities are also putting cash in land and infrastructure to incentivize projects. 

Ironically, Buelow notes, state incentives often seem to “be countercyclical to the broader economic cycle. When we’re in a recession, projects dry up and more states are wondering ‘What’s wrong with us? Why aren’t we seeing more activity? We need to retool.’” On the other hand, he says, “When the economy is rocking and rolling, legislatures seem to be inclined to remove available incentives. They may think, ‘Times are good, companies are talking to us; we don’t need some of these things.’ So, we seem to go back and forth between extremes.” 

Getting More Creative
Economic development competition among states has intensified over the years, and many companies that tap into incentives have been doing so for decades. As a result, states are being asked to get more creative, and think about other ways to help businesses, beyond tax breaks, cash grants, and low-interest loans. 

“There is this ‘frontier of creativity.’ Some states are quite adept at offering different modes of assistance, some that are a little nontraditional,” Buelow says. Often, these creative ideas don’t cost taxpayers — so-called “soft assistance,” Buelow explains, such as adding a job-creating newcomer to state bid lists. 

Buelow also sees more states offering custom training tailored to the specific needs of a company “rather than offering something on shelf that has to be delivered by the state training authority.” While some states that formerly lagged behind have developed “best in breed” training programs, such as Georgia’s Quick Start program and Louisiana FastStart, others have been reluctant to do that, Buelow says. One useful strategy is allowing state economic development funds to be used “to pay workers’ salaries, while they are being trained. Companies want flexibility, customization, and fungibility,” he notes. 

Josh Bays, a principal with the Dallas-based Site Selection Group, agrees that not all states have kept pace with changing industrial times. “Historically, economic incentives have rewarded job creation more than capital investment. Intuitively, you would think that those states and communities that want to be more aggressive would start rewarding capital investment more than they have in the past. But a lot of state-level incentives are still based more on job creation.” 

One state that has updated its programs is North Dakota. To stay competitive, and help its resident companies stay competitive, in 2013 the state created an “automation credit,” according to Laura Willard, a project manager for the North Dakota Department of Commerce’s Economic Development and Finance division. The credit, designated for the tax years 2013 through 2015, provides an income tax credit equal to 20 percent of the cost of automation equipment. The state is in the process of evaluating “all of our tax incentives,” Willard notes. 

Evaluating the Effectiveness of Incentives Programs
Several years ago, The Pew Charitable Trusts developed a “business incentives initiative” to help states identify and share best practices for collecting, managing, and analyzing data on economic development incentives. Pew funded research to evaluate the effectiveness of states’ economic development initiatives. Pew concluded “lawmakers often approve or continue incentives without knowing their potential cost or whether they are working,” and cited a “knowledge gap.” 

According to Pew, from 2012 to 2014, 10 states and the District of Columbia passed laws that will require regular evaluation of tax incentives or will improve existing evaluation processes. Maine, Minnesota, Nebraska, North Dakota, Oklahoma, Tennessee, and Texas enacted laws requiring regular evaluation of tax incentives in 2015. 

Jason Hickey, president of Hickey & Associates, LLC, says that although jobs are “still the critical factor” in most states, some have allowed capital investment to be the qualifying inducement to capture incentives, citing Alabama as one example. Earlier this year, the state of Alabama adopted a new incentives platform that, for the first time, included an incentive specifically tied to job creation. However, the job-creation target to qualify for incentives is relatively low — 50 jobs. In order to stimulate investment in rural areas, Alabama has lowered the number to 25 jobs for projects in counties with populations below 25,000, according to Alabama’s Commerce Secretary Greg Canfield. 

Hickey says companies often sign up for incentives that have very little value to them — such as incentives based on tax revenue levels “they would never be able to achieve. It’s not up to the state to decide what is valuable; it’s up to the company,” he notes. Almost half of all incentives available are never realized by companies because they don’t meet the requirements. For companies that accept incentives, it’s also important to have an “aftercare process in place so they can make sure they live up to the expectations they agreed to,” Hickey says. 

Bays says companies sometimes fail to consider key “operational factors. Incentives are awarded for finite periods of time — most often between one and 10 years. Most companies have plans to be operational in a location much longer than that.” And, it’s still the case that economic incentives rank lower on location-decision lists than workforce considerations, regulatory hurdles, and infrastructure factors. 

Bays sees a trend of states becoming “more stringent on the compliance side. They’re requiring a more lengthy compliance process and more stringent clawback policies, making sure they are holding companies accountable.” On a final note, he advises companies to “make sure you really understand what portion of an incentive package is actually useable by your company, and also carefully evaluate compliance requirements.”

          Dalrymple Calls for Comprehensive National Energy Policy   
By ND Governor's Office
Speaking today at the Great Plains & Empower ND Energy Conference, Gov. Jack Dalrymple said the nation should follow North Dakota’s lead in developing a truly “all-of-the-above” energy policy that empowers industry to produce diverse and affordable energy supplies, advance energy independence and create jobs.
 
“At a time of growing demand for affordable and reliable energy, we need a national energy policy that truly supports the development of all of our energy resources,” Dalrymple said. “North Dakota is a great example of what can be accomplished when we support the responsible development of our oil and gas resources; when we recognize the important role of coal-fired power generation while reducing emissions; and when we continue to increase production of renewable resources.”
 
North Dakota can also become a national leader in value-added energy, Dalrymple said. The Governor encouraged energy representatives attending the conference to continue developing projects that reduce flaring, add value to the state’s abundant supplies of natural gas and create jobs.
 
North Dakota has developed a comprehensive energy policy that acknowledges the need for a diverse power supply, and empowers all energy sectors to work together in the interests of meeting the growing demand for affordable energy.  Dalrymple said North Dakota’s energy policy, developed through EmPower ND, has helped the state achieve major advancements in energy production, including:
  • North Dakota has become the nation’s second-largest oil producer and remains among the nation’s most cost-efficient shale oil plays.
  • North Dakota continues to increase its electric generation from non-carbon sources. Today, about 25 percent of North Dakota's total electric generation comes from wind and hydroelectric power.
  • North Dakota is one of just a handful of states meeting all ambient air quality standards established by the Environmental Protection Agency.
  • Total carbon emissions in North Dakota have dropped 11 percent below 2005 levels, despite the Bakken oil boom.
The Governor said that the Obama Administration refuses to honor states’ rights and continues on a path that threatens the nation’s ability to produce affordable energy and enhance its energy security.  Dalrymple cited the EPA’s “Clean Power Plan” and proposed “Waters of the United States” rule as examples of government overreach that will impede responsible energy development and drive up consumers’ energy costs.           
 
Dalrymple, Sen. John Hoeven, Sen. Heidi Heitkamp and Rep. Kevin Cramer hosted the annual Great Plains & Empower ND Energy Conference which was held at Bismarck State College’s National Center of Excellence. The daylong conference included a panel discussion with Dalrymple and the state’s congressional delegation as well as presentations by leading energy researchers and developers. Speakers included Federal Energy Regulatory Commissioner Tony Clark, and Marianne Kah, chief economist at ConocoPhillips.

          North Dakota UAS Industry on Edge Waiting for Release of Proposed Rules   
By Grand Forks Herald
The year 2014 came and went without the Federal Aviation Administration releasing its proposed rules for small unmanned aircraft — a draft North Dakota officials have been anxiously awaiting.
 
 
"We're sitting here on pins and needles," said Al Palmer, director of UND's unmanned aircraft systems center.

The rules would pertain to the use of small unmanned aerial systems, which are defined as devices less than 55 pounds. What exactly will be included in this draft is anyone's guess but those in the industry have a few ideas.

If included, requirements for UAS pilots are especially of interest for UND, Palmer said, adding rumors are circulating that it could be as simple as a certification course or as complex as getting a pilot's license.

The long-delayed release of the draft was expected to happen before the end of 2014, but officials now hope to see it later this month. Once released, the rules must undergo a public comment period officials expect to last at least a year. After the comments are reviewed and addressed, the finalized rules will be released in 2016 or even 2017.

"It'll be really interesting to see how the industry behaves in the next two years," said David Dvorak, founder of UAS sensor development company Field of View in Grand Forks.

Right now, Dvorak said the FAA just needs to release the proposed rules.

"It's fine if they're not perfect right away, but we just need to get something to give some hard and fast guidelines for people," he added.

Commercial use

Perhaps the most anticipated part of the rules would be the potential inclusion of guidelines for commercial operations.

"We hope that there are guidelines because people are using these things now," Palmer said. "The FAA doesn't have the manpower or staffing to go out and observe everything that's going on."

Commercial use of these aircraft is currently banned by the FAA, unless a company is granted a special exemption by the agency. Companies that have received exemptions so far are mostly involved in the motion picture industry.

In North Dakota, agriculture will likely emerge as the main arena of commercial use for the devices. Other industries such as energy, transportation and health care are also expected to adopt the use of UAS in some capacity in the state.

Dvorak's company focuses on providing sensors for agricultural use, relying on sales to international customers and universities during the commercial use ban.

He says there is a fear among business owners that the rules may be too restrictive.

"There is a possibility that the FAA could release these rules and they're so restrictive that you can't really do commercial operations," Dvorak said.

Rule breakdown

As FAA guidelines stand now, hobbyists are allowed to operate unmanned aircraft under 55 pounds within their line of sight and under an altitude of 400 feet. They are asked to contact an airport if they plan to fly within 5 miles of the facility and to avoid flying near any manned aircraft or at night.

Public agencies such as law enforcement and universities are required to obtain a certificate of authorization from the FAA to legally fly unmanned aircraft. These certificates take about 60 days or less to receive, according the administration's website.

The Grand Forks County Sheriff's Office has authorization to fly in 16 North Dakota counties. So far, the office's devices have been used to survey accident and crime scenes, search for missing persons and find suspects fleeing from officers.

At least two research projects overseen by UND and North Dakota State University also have been greenlighted by UND's UAS Research Compliance Committee. That committee vets research proposals brought to the university.

This summer, unmanned aircraft monitored wildlife at Sully's Hill Wildlife Preserve near Devils Lake and crops at NDSU's research facility near Carrington, N.D.

More research proposals are expected to be up for discussion at the compliance committee's Jan. 16 meeting.

Favorable attitudes

Release of the small UAS rules was delayed in part by privacy concerns voiced to the FAA.

A study conducted in the summer of 2014 hints operators likely won't run into too many privacy concerns in northeast North Dakota.

More than 70 percent of residents surveyed by two UND professors said they did not have concerns about UAS encroaching on their personal privacy. The survey polled 647 residents in 16 northeastern counties about their feelings toward various types of unmanned aircraft use.

When it came to businesses, just over half of respondents said they had no concerns and 64 percent weren't worried about individuals operating the devices.

The preliminary findings of the study were released by Thomasine Heitkamp and Cindy Juntunen — both members of the research compliance committee — at the 2014 UAS Action Summit held in June in Grand Forks. While results were favorable for the industry, officials acknowledge there are still concerns with UAS flight.

"The fear out there is there is a risk that somebody's out there flying these things and since there are no rules per se ... we may be operating these things in an unsafe manner too close to an airport where we could have an accident or an incident," Palmer said.

Federal data show an increase of UAS sightings and near-misses with manned aircraft being reported to the FAA as of June, but none of those incidents occurred in North Dakota.

In advance of the small rule release and a holiday season where people could possibly find a UAS under their Christmas tree, the FAA launched a safety campaign and educational website.

The Know Before You Fly website gives users a primer on types of unmanned aircraft use and the rules associated with each.

          Dalrymple Congratulates State Hospital on National Award   
By ND Governor
Gov. Jack Dalrymple today congratulated the North Dakota State Hospital, which is part of the N.D. Department of Human Services, on being nationally recognized as a Top Performer on Key Quality Measures. The award was given by The Joint Commission, the leading accreditor of health organizations in America, for exemplary performance in providing evidence-based clinical measures that are shown to improve patient care for hospital-based inpatient psychiatric services.  

“Congratulations to the entire staff at the North Dakota State Hospital for being named a national Top Performer,” Dalrymple said. “The services provided here help individuals with mental health needs that require a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise. We are proud of the work done by the State Hospital and proud these mental health services are readily available for North Dakotans who need them.”

As a Top Performer, the State Hospital achieved a performance rating of 95 percent or more for each accountability measure including appropriate admission screenings, patient safety practices, creating and implementing patient care plans, and appropriate usage of multiple anti-psychotic medications. Each accountability measure represents an evidence-based practice and is reported annually to The Joint Commission.  

The State Hospital is the primary provider of inpatient mental health and addiction treatment services for a 26-county area in the state.

“This national recognition validates the quality services and care provided at the North Dakota State Hospital in coordination with the regional human service centers and other behavioral health service providers,” said Maggie Anderson, executive director of the N.D. Department of Human Services.
 
For the current biennium, the state invested more resources through the Department of Human Services to enhance behavioral health services across North Dakota. This includes additional funding for acute care and rehabilitation needs due to traumatic brain injuries, residential treatment services at the Robinson Recovery Center, transitional living programs and long-term residential programs for individuals with mental illness and/or substance addiction issues, mental health case management services, medical detox services, and community-based high-risk sex offender treatment in coordination with the Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation.  

“We understand that what matters most to State Hospital patients and their families is safe, effective care, which contributes to better outcomes and supports recovery,” said Alex Schweitzer, superintendent of the hospital.  “The credit goes to our staff who work hard to provide positive patient outcomes every day, and that is why this recognition means a tremendous amount to staff and the entire organization.”

As part of its award, the State Hospital was recognized in The Joint Commission’s Improving America’s Hospital’s annual report, and on The Joint Commission’s Quality Check website at <a href="http://www.qualitycheck.org">www.qualitycheck.org</a>.

The Joint Commission is the nation’s oldest and largest standards-setting and accrediting body in health care.  They evaluate and accredit more than 19,000 health care organizations and programs in the United States.

For information about the North Dakota State Hospital call 701-253-3964, ND Relay TTY 800-366-6888, or visit <a href="http://www.nd.gov/dhs/locations/statehospital/index.html">www.nd.gov/dhs/locations/statehospital/index.html.

          thoughts on canada 150   
It's Canada Day, this year dubbed Canada 150, with its own corporate brand and a carefully worded story of that number 150. We also have Canada 150+, which acknowledges that human cultures and societies have been living in what is now Canada for thousands of years.

I have mixed feelings about Canada Day.

First, I despise nationalism of all kinds, including the kind called patriotism. I used to make a distinction between the two (something I learned from my mother), but have come to feel that it is all the same: I am better than you because I live on this piece of land and you don't. In Canada, patriotism mostly translates into complacency, as if "we're much better than our neighbours to the south!" is good enough.

But more importantly, when it comes to Canada 150, are indigenous people. The very concept of Canada 150 excludes and erases the original inhabitants of this land. From an indigenous point of view, Canada 150 marks the beginning of colonialism, occupation, extermination.

This would be bad enough, if the horrors weren't still being lived right here, right now. A country that spends $500,000,000 celebrating itself should be able to bring clean water to everyone who lives here.* The Missing and Murdered Indigenous Women issue should be wrapped up by now, a shameful piece of history, not an ongoing battle. Governments should be thanking indigenous leadership on the environmental front, and trying to reverse the damage done to indigenous land and water by extraction industries.

Most of my leftist comrades eschew Canada Day for this reason, and are disgusted by Canada 150.

I agree. And yet... I have another perspective, too.

I love Canada in many ways. I am grateful that I was able to come here and begin my life anew. I love that Canada was an early adopter of equal marriage, and now leads the way in the rights of transpeople. I love Canada's public health care (and wish there was a whole lot more of it). I love that women (mostly) have full control over our reproductive lives. I love the multiculturalism, and the strong reaction when that value is transgressed. Of course there is racism here -- which only means Canadians are human beings -- but the kind of virulence and violence seen every day in the US would never be tolerated here on a large scale.

The indigenous perspective is big news here -- emphasized in the mainstream media and acknowledged by the top level of government. Many countries all over the world refuse to even acknowledge a colonial or genocidal past. Words without action are meaningless, but no action can begin without that acknowledgement; while words alone are insufficient, they are still significant.

I have spent most of my life opposing state power, and there's plenty to work on here, on every front -- peace, environment, labour, health care, gender equity. None of it is good enough. But if we widen the lens to view Canada globally, it's one of the best places to live on the planet. There's a lot I would change and fix, but if we could magically give everyone on the planet the quality of life enjoyed by most Canadians, it would be a vast improvement. (Of course, the planet would collapse, because its resources would be instantly depleted. But we're only talking metaphor here.)

Canada is far from perfect -- and Canadians know that, acknowledge it, and strive for better. Which in turn is part of why I love it here.

Canada 150 doesn't mean a lot to me. But there's no way around it. I love Canada. That's why I'll never stop criticizing it.



* To be fair, most of that money went to repairing and renovating infrastructure that will should last well beyond the July 1, 2017 party. Perhaps that highlights the issue even more starkly!

          THE TIES THAT BIND:   
The Time I Got Recruited to Collude with the Russians (Matt Tait  Friday, June 30, 2017, LawFare)

A few weeks later, right around the time the DNC emails were dumped by Wikileaks--and curiously, around the same time Trump called for the Russians to get Hillary Clinton's missing emails--I was contacted out the blue by a man named Peter Smith, who had seen my work going through these emails. Smith implied that he was a well-connected Republican political operative.

Initially, I assumed the query must have been about my work on the DNC hack; after all, few people followed my account prior to the DNC breach, whereas my analysis of the break-in at the DNC had received considerably more coverage. I assumed his query about the "Clinton emails" was therefore a mistake and that he meant instead to talk to me about the emails stolen from the DNC. So I agreed to talk to him, thinking that, whatever my views on then-candidate Trump, if a national campaign wanted an independent non-partisan view on the facts surrounding the case, I should provide it to the best of my ability.

Yet Smith had not contacted me about the DNC hack, but rather about his conviction that Clinton's private email server had been hacked--in his view almost certainly both by the Russian government and likely by multiple other hackers too--and his desire to ensure that the fruits of those hacks were exposed prior to the election. Over the course of a long phone call, he mentioned that he had been contacted by someone on the "Dark Web" who claimed to have a copy of emails from Secretary Clinton's private server, and this was why he had contacted me; he wanted me to help validate whether or not the emails were genuine. [...]

Over the course of our conversations, one thing struck me as particularly disturbing. Smith and I talked several times about the DNC hack, and I expressed my view that the hack had likely been orchestrated by Russia and that the Kremlin was using the stolen documents as part of an influence campaign against the United States. I explained that if someone had contacted him via the "Dark Web" with Clinton's personal emails, he should take very seriously the possibility that this may have been part of a wider Russian campaign against the United States. And I said he need not take my word for it, pointing to a number of occasions where US officials had made it clear that this was the view of the U.S. intelligence community as well.

Smith, however, didn't seem to care. From his perspective it didn't matter who had taken the emails, or their motives for doing so. He never expressed to me any discomfort with the possibility that the emails he was seeking were potentially from a Russian front, a likelihood he was happy to acknowledge. If they were genuine, they would hurt Clinton's chances, and therefore help Trump.

When he first contacted me, I did not know who Smith was, but his legitimate connections within the Republican party were apparent. My motive for initially speaking to him was that I wondered if the campaign was trying to urgently establish whether the claims that Russia had hacked the DNC was merely "spin" from the Clinton campaign, or instead something they would need to address before Trump went too far down the road of denying it. My guess was that maybe they wanted to contact someone who could provide them with impartial advice to understand whether the claims were real or just rhetoric.

Although it wasn't initially clear to me how independent Smith's operation was from Flynn or the Trump campaign, it was immediately apparent that Smith was both well connected within the top echelons of the campaign and he seemed to know both Lt. Gen. Flynn and his son well. Smith routinely talked about the goings on at the top of the Trump team, offering deep insights into the bizarre world at the top of the Trump campaign. Smith told of Flynn's deep dislike of DNI Clapper, whom Flynn blamed for his dismissal by President Obama. Smith told of Flynn's moves to position himself to become CIA Director under Trump, but also that Flynn had been persuaded that the Senate confirmation process would be prohibitively difficult. He would instead therefore become National Security Advisor should Trump win the election, Smith said. He also told of a deep sense of angst even among Trump loyalists in the campaign, saying "Trump often just repeats whatever he's heard from the last person who spoke to him," and expressing the view that this was especially dangerous when Trump was away.

Mobile phones can cause brain tumours: Italian court rules

In a landmark ruling, an Italian court has acknowledged and ruled that excessive, work-related use of a mobile phone can cause brain tumour.

The court’s ruling came after a plaintiff identified as Roberto Romeo alleged that excessive, work-related use of mobile phones caused him to develop a tumour in the brain.

Romeo, 57, had testified that his work duties forced him to use a mobile phone for 3-4 hours of each working day for more than fifteen years.

Lawyers Stefano Bertone and Renato Ambrosio, who represented Romeo in the court, said, “For the first time in the world, a court has recognised a causal link between inappropriate use of a mobile phone and a brain tumour.”

The court agreed with his claim and awarded the 57-year-old a state-funded pension of around £400 per month.

The ruling was made on 11th of April but only made public on Thursday. The ruling is, however, subject to a possible appeal.

Microsoft patches NSA’s leaked Windows hacks

Microsoft Corp. has claimed that it has already patched the security holes in Windows that were allegedly exploited by a group called “The Shadow Brokers” earlier this year.

The hacking tools that were probably originated from the NSA were recently released online, and the software giant was capable of testing and confirming patches that are available for all supported versions of operating system.

Microsoft’s responsed quickly after a number of security researchers raised concerns. One of the security experts even advised users of Windows to turn off their computers for the weekend.

NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden argued that the NSA didn’t warn Microsoft about the leaked security holes. However, a security researcher, known as the grugq, claimed that the NSA might have reported a few bugs themselves.

While the Redmond firm always acknowledges the source of security flaw reports, the grugq noticed that there are no acknowledgements for patches (MS17-010) that were issued in March to fix some of the leaked NSA exploits.

While Microsoft has already patched the exploits; users of older versions of Windows, including XP and Windows Vista, might still be at risk as the software giant will likely not supply any patches for these unsupported operating systems.

Coffee is one of society's staples. Rain International wants to make coffee even better. So, Rain decided to enhance it. They kept the same, nostalgic flavor, but added substance to coffee so that it's now a "Super Food" and an 'Infusion.' Rain took a proprietary, four-seed oil-blend and infused-it into each cup of their gourmet coffee. This blend is: Grapefruit-seed, Grape-seed, Pomegranate-seed, along with Black Cumin-seed which carry a wealth-of-benefits and nutrients. By combining the four-seed-oils into each coffee bean, Rain created a super-charged source of nutrition that converts average coffee into a source of health and wellness. https://rainintl.com/fused/seeds.

Rain has been providing groundbreaking research and revolutionary nutritional-supplement products since 2011. The Black Cumin Seed was highly-regarded as a beneficial herbal-preparation. The Black Cumin Seed worked then and the benefits are confirmed today. Mentioned in ancient-texts for its specialized benefits – Black Cumin Seed was even found in King Tut's tomb. Since the 1960's, there have been over 650 peer-reviewed-studies chronicling the benefits of the Black Cumin Seed.

D-Ribose is a five-carbon sugar found in every-cell in the human body that combines with oxygen and ATP (adenosine tri-phosphate) in order to give 'energy' to each cell. Ribose is also present in RNA (ribonucleic-acid), which is one of the main information-carriers of living organisms. Oxidative -Stress, is measured by Free-Radical damage to cells. If bodies experience an abnormal-increase in Free Radicals due to exercise, daily-stress, excess smoking, excess-saturated fat-intake, depressed immune-system, aging, etc., the body becomes fatigued and less-efficient in producing D-Ribose to replenish cellular energy. Thus, the human body needs to supplement with D-Ribose to regenerate the cells energy-system.

Who should use Dark Spot Corrector? Our Dark Spot Corrector is the appropriate treatment option for anyone looking to help fade the appearance of dark spots, regardless of age or gender. While we formulated our product with the highest quality, safe ingredients, every person's skin is unique so it is best to test the product on a different skin area to make sure you react well to the ingredients.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/faqs

A different spot corrector actually made my dark spots MORE noticeable. Could this happen with your product? The reason many other products make your dark spots MORE noticeable is because they use harsh, potentially dangerous bleaching agents, which can seep into surrounding skin. This means that they can cause a white "ring" to form around the dark spot - which actually makes the spot "highlighted" and more obvious!

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/products/dark-spot-corrector

Our product won't cause this effect because it does not contain a bleaching agent. Active ingredients in Dark Spot Corrector work deep within the skin where dark spots start, to "break up" areas of hyperpigmentation and reduce melanin overproduction naturally.

How do I use Dark Spot Corrector? It should be used up to four times daily, depending on the color and size of your spots. Using a pea- or dime-sized amount, apply the treatment directly to your areas of hyperpigmentation. Because our skin's natural healing processes are most efficient at night, never forget to apply before bed!

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/about

Other spot correctors I've tried smell horrible, like chemicals. Does yours? Many other spot correctors smell like harsh chemicals because they're MADE with horrible chemicals. We, on the other hand, spent years actively searching for the most powerful natural ingredients in the world that can achieve the same (or even better) results as those harsh chemicals, without any of the risk or danger. Because ours is more natural, you won't experience the "ink" or "Clorox" smells so many other products have. Ours smells very lightly of plum and honey, due to its inclusion of the powerful Kakadu plum.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/faqs

I have oily, acne-prone skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector clog my pores or cause breakouts? Many products have a heavy cream base that makes skin feel oily and greasy. Instead, ours has a light gel base that dries quickly and absorbs into the layers of the epidermis - instead of sitting on top of your skin and clogging pores. This makes it ideal to use before makeup application or before applying your daily SPF moisturizer.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/products/dark-spot-corrector

I have very dry skin. Will Dark Spot Corrector irritate my skin or cause flaking like other products I've tried? The ingredients in our formula contain properties meant to moisturize and protect the skin, unlike other products whose harsh chemicals dry out and dehydrate the epidermis. Every person's skin is different - but most people using this product should notice a pleasant, non-greasy moisturizing effect.

Can I use Dark Spot Corrector around my eyes? Although our dark spot corrector is formulated with gentle, non-irritating ingredients, the skin around the eyes is significantly thinner than surrounding skin - making it much more delicate and sensitive. That's why it is best to use products around the eyes that are specifically formulated for that area.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/

Is there a money-back guarantee? Our mission at 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals is to create effective and affordable products that not only meet but exceed your expectations. We want to prove this to you. Test-drive our products for two months and feel confident in your decision. On top of that, our expert customer service team is always here for you to answer any questions you may have about the product.

Dr. Ellen Marmur, MD , Dermatology: Your body is constantly under attack from outside forces, and the skin is its greatest defender. It functions like Gore-tex, a high-tech outer sheath that protects us from temperature extremes, wind, and ultraviolet rays from the sun. It's a two-way barrier that not only retains water in the body but also acts as a water-resistant raincoat against too much water coming in. It's also our best shield against injury (bruises, cuts, and scrapes) and infection.

This incredible packaging contains us and keeps the body in balance by regulating temperature and providing insulation from heat and cold. For example, all the hair follicles are attached to tiny muscles that contract as a response to cold air, elevating hair on the body and trapping air around us, keeping the body warm like fur. When it's hot outside, cooling mechanisms kick into gear as the nervous system triggers the blood vessels and sweat glands to release heat as fast as possible. Overheated blood is pumped away from the heart and out to the skin, where the heat dissipates (which is why your skin becomes flushed). Sweating cools the skin by bringing moisture to the surface, where it evaporates in the air - instant air-conditioning. https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD, Cardiology (Cardiovascular Disease): Your skin works to protect you in many ways. First, skin covers your entire body and provides waterproof protection. But skin does so much more than that!

Skin, a complex organ, is the largest organ in your body. It produces melanin, the brown pigment that protects against the ultraviolet radiation in sunlight. It also contains special immune cells, called Langerhans cells that protect your body from potentially dangerous microbes. Skin contains lymph cells (lymphocytes) that protect you from infection. It contains sweat glands that help your body get rid of waste and maintain the correct body temperature. And, last but not least, your skin is rich in nerve cells that allow you to experience touch, which plays a key role in human emotions, including sexual attraction. https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

https://www.sharecare.com/health/healthy-skin/how-does-my-skin-work

Other products I've tried gave me results at first, but then stopped working after a while. Will this happen with your product? The reason you may have experienced this with other products is because they may not have added enough of the active ingredients (usually to cut corners and save a buck), or they use harsh chemicals that cause an instant reaction but do not work in the long term. Instead, our formula is packed with ingredients that give you LASTING results, and the longer you use the product, the better results you'll experience.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/

Is it suitable for all skin types? Since our Dark Spot Corrector contains safe, natural ingredients that help regenerate your skin from the inside out, our unique formula can be used on every skin type without the risk of side effects. However, every person's skin is different, so results may vary.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/products/dark-spot-corrector

Can it be used on sensitive skin? Because our Dark Spot Corrector is formulated with natural, gentle ingredients, it is safe to use on even the most sensitive skin. However, those who know they have sensitive skin are always advised to use caution when using any new product for the first time.

https://www.5thavenuecosmeceuticals.com/pages/about

How do I know it's working? We always recommend that our patients take a "before" picture prior to their first use. Take your "after" photo about a month later and you can see the results for yourself! Our patients have reported a reduction in the color and size of the hyper-pigmented area, but since every person's skin is unique, every person's experience is slightly different.

Does 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals test on animals? Absolutely NOT. 5th Avenue Cosmeceuticals adheres strictly to cruelty-free, animal-friendly practices. REEF FRIENDLY. Made with Natural ingredients.

          Comment on We Still Celebrate Independence Day at Church (by Dean Stewart) by Jim Perry   
Hey Dave Miller Todd Benkert Brent Hobbs, this started as a comment on the post about patriotic services, but grew so long in the telling that it seemed less appropriate as such. Would it pass muster as a regular piece on the blog as the other side of the argument? ####### I was a worship leader on staff at a church the last two years. I have seen two 4th's of July come and go, and I never did even one patriotic song. Pastor mentioned it and maybe preached on how to live as Christians in this country, but we didn't do patriotic stuff, and in fact, I never heard a complaint for not doing it. And we're in the middle of Indiana, which is hardly any less patriotic than anyone else. I have said in the past, perhaps glibly, "I'm here to worship God, not America." That's how I see it, personally. But there is so much to deal with on this issue, and it really is a matter of the conscience, certainly not a salvation issue, or perhaps not even a right or wrong issue, though I suppose we only come to positions we believe are right and correct. I don't hate anyone who thinks differently, and I don't get angry over it. But here, perhaps, is a suitable explanation of my perspective. The first principle is that it is incumbent upon those of us in leadership to aim for the higher ideal, closer to the heart of God, and lead our people there. With regard to the "meat sacrificed to idols" topic, much is made of the "brother with the weaker conscience," but wherein is the strengthening of that conscience? If it is permissible to eat that meat, but we abstain from doing it in front of the weaker brother, are we not to educate said brother and strengthen him so that he agrees with the Lord, "Why call unclean what I have made unclean?" I don't believe the Apostle was advocating for leaving said brother in his "weaker" state. We absolutely have to analyze why we think the way we think, in all areas. To find the roots of our sentiments and judge them valid or invalid. First is an appreciation for the undertaking that won us our liberty from Great Britain. I love the Revolutionary War period of history. I will gobble that stuff up. Every 4th of July I make my kids sit down and watch The Patriot, with John Williams' beautiful score (my son's named after the guy), and that overwhelming sense of national pride. This and the founding documents are essential to understanding how and why we became who we are as Americans, and Who through His divine Providence made us free. Second is our contemporary sentiments regarding this country, which are largely generational. We are nearing the time when the veterans of World War II will no longer be among us. It was the last war that I believe we fought on entirely just grounds (save for the first Gulf War, which really was no war, but a brief armed incursion to remove Saddam Hussein from Kuwait). Many thousands of people died to liberate the European continent and the Pacific theater from near global tyranny. The industry of war finally brought us out of the Depression (which FDR had unnecessarily perpetuated with his disastrous economic policies). It brought us together as a nation for a common purpose. It made us proud to be Americans. We were the good guys for real. We did something really GOOD, and that was something to celebrate. The World War II generation may be nearly lost to us, but their children remain. They were raised in a country steeped in this good patriotism. My Grandfather was of the World War II generation, and several of you are Boomers, so we are not so far removed from that time we did something truly good. We know and believe what we are taught, and we naturally gravitate toward the familiar. So it is with no great burden that we dutifully recite the Pledge of Allegiance, we stand for the National Anthem with our hands on our hearts, we vote because we believe we should, and we say our troops our "defending our freedom." However, I am reminded of a couple things from Eisenhower's farewell address. Who better to draw from than a man who embraced, and served with distinction in, all spheres of his life? The first is this: "In the councils of government, we must guard against the acquisition of unwarranted influence, whether sought or unsought, by the military-industrial complex. The potential for the disastrous rise of misplaced power exists and will persist. We must never let the weight of this combination endanger our liberties or democratic processes. We should take nothing for granted. Only an alert and knowledgeable citizenry can compel the proper meshing of the huge industrial and military machinery of defense with our peaceful methods and goals, so that security and liberty may prosper together." We have been so very fortunate that those at the head of the "military-industrial complex" have not sought misplaced power. Our military brass have respected the chain of command, and I agree that all who have served deserve our honor and respect. The problem is that there has been a "disastrous rise of misplaced power" in our politicians, and all our Presidents since Eisenhower have been looking, in one form or another, for that next great military victory that all Americans can again be unified in celebrating. Trust me when I say that I am not being glib in asking this question, and it is not a reflection on our troops or their commanders, but rather the bureaucrats who command them. Are they really sent to defend our freedom? Were they defending *our* freedom when they were sent to Vietnam, Grenada, Kosovo, Iraq or Somalia? Our military has been sent into action after questionable action, without Constitutionally appropriate declarations of war from Congress, and then when they are sent in, the execution of the action so often becomes subject to political calculation and partisan whim. We all know too well the sins of Vietnam. I now fear my children desiring to serve in the military, and would counsel them against it. I didn't always feel this way. The second Eisenhower quote is this: "As we peer into society's future, we -- you and I, and our government -- must avoid the impulse to live only for today, plundering for our own ease and convenience the precious resources of tomorrow. We cannot mortgage the material assets of our grandchildren without risking the loss also of their political and spiritual heritage. We want democracy to survive for all generations to come, not to become the insolvent phantom of tomorrow." Sadly, the World War II generation gave us a great tragedy along with a great victory. That tragedy was the vast behemoth of FDR's government, which threw out the window every great thing that President Coolidge achieved (or left alone) when he vastly reduced the size, scope and budget of the Federal Government. That World War II generation, and now the Boomers, are beginning to rely on a government program that has itself become insolvent, and may in fact become a "phantom" tomorrow. With the national debt now having increased 800% (!!!!!) since 1980, vastly out-gaining inflation of just over 212%, our government has truly mortgaged the material assets of our grandchildren. By allowing Marxist Socialism into our government and allowing the Federal Government to exceed its Constitutional bounds, we have lost our political heritage. And who would be culpable in a nation that has lost its spiritual heritage? Perhaps the American Church which has largely worshiped our "Christian" Nation? Examine your own hearts in this regard. How many times to we misappropriate 2 Chronicles 7:14 for America? This is not a promise from the Lord to heal our land, but Israel. And under the New Covenant we are spiritually grafted into Israel, which is a *spiritual* Israel. Psalm 81:13 says, "If only my people would listen to me and Israel would follow my ways." God is not going to heal America, no matter how much we ask him. He is interested in the hearts of men and women, and he judged harshly the nations whose god was themselves. So when you raise up America in the focal place where God is worshiped, how can he be pleased? This is what bothers me about Awana or RA’s/GA’s (if anyone does that still). We teach kids not only to do the Pledge of Allegiance–which, secularly speaking, is good insofar as we do not seek to undermine the country whose benefits we enjoy–but then a made-up pledge to the Bible, which the Lord doesn’t command we do, and a made-up pledge for a made-up “Christian” flag, which to me, raising a flag for Jesus that Jesus didn’t institute is an abomination. It's an offensive trivialization of the Faith. We lift up the Savior, not a flag. Yes, we ought to be grateful that God gave us this country to live in, where our ancestors settled to be free to worship as they saw fit. Yes we have been blessed by God, but we have taken that blessing and grown fat and lazy. We have "done evil in the sight of the Lord," and not just "those sinners" who practice abortion and homosexuality, but also "us Christians" who gossip, covet, hate and worship idols. None of this should be taken as hatred for America, but rather we all ought to cultivate a healthy sense of ambivalence to it. And I mean 'healthy.' We have liberties and we should *use* them, even as many of them are slowly eroded away. We must participate in the electoral process, but always demanding the best of our politicians. We should lobby our government for "redress of grievances" as is appropriate. We should not speak evil of her but speak truthfully about the evils within her, and most especially in our own house. We should recognize the erosion of civility with the increase in partisanship and become less partisan ourselves because Jesus is our King, and His is our Kingdom. With the celebration of our founding comes lament in that we have allowed this country to fall so far from it. In conclusion, I do not feel patriotic observances are wrong. It is not sinful to honor the people who have served in our military. Have the picnics. Have the fireworks. Sing the songs, honor those who died in service to another, and celebrate the founding of "the last best hope of man on earth." But consider carefully whether it ought to take the place of our singing to the Lord, and singing of him only, and preaching of his Word rather than overlaying it with a flag. To present this as a function of our worship service is wrong, in my view. It is not hope on earth we are trying to secure, but hope in the life to come.

          Faster Remote Gemstone   

Just a quick post to document some knowledge for myself and for anyone using Gemstone on a remote server like SliceHost or my preference Linode and trying to run GemTools locally through a ssh tunnel. It's slow, very slow, several seconds per mouse click. OmniBrowser is just to chatty. Fortunately Linux has a better way to do it: X11Forwarding. Run the GemTools client on the remote server and forward the UI for just that app to your workstation.

Now, if you have a mostly Windows background like I do, this might be something new to you, it certainly was to me. I'd kind of heard of it, but didn't realize what it was until today after I got it working. Just one more frakking cool thing Linux can do, much nicer than VNC/Remote Desktop because it means you don't have to install any window manager and the other hundred dependencies that go with it on the server. Every piece of software installed on a remote server is a piece of software that needs updated and/or could be hacked or make the next upgrade not go smoothly, so the less stuff installed on a server the better as far as I'm concerned.

I happen to be running the latest 64bit Ubuntu 10.4 LTS on a Linode server, so if you're running something else the steps might be slightly different. To prep the server, which I'm assuming is a headless server managed via ssh, you'll only need to install two packages. One to enable the X11 forwarding and one to install a library that the Squeak VM needs for its UI that's not installed by default on a headless server.

sudo aptitude install xauth libgl1-mesa-dev ia32-libs

You'll also need to enable X11Forwarding in /etc/ssh/sshd_config by ensuring this line exists.

X11Forwarding yes

Restart sshd if you had to change this because it wasn't enabled.

sudo /etc/init.d/ssh restart

Now just upload the GemTools one click image and unzip it.

scp GemTools-1.0-beta.8-244x.app.zip glass@serverName:
ssh glass@serverName
unzip GemTools-1.0-beta.8-244x.app.zip

And everything is ready to go. Now ssh in again but this time with forwarding and compression enabled.

ssh -X -C glass@serverName

Now any graphical program started on the server from this session, will run on the server, but its UI will display as a window on the client as if it were running directly on the client. Now fire up GemTools on the server...

cd GemTools-1.0-beta.8-244x.app
./GemTools.sh

And GemTools will start up and it'll appear to run locally, but it's actually running remotely which means OmniBrowser can be as chatty as it likes, it's all runnning from localhost from its point of view. The X display, which is built to do this much better, is running on your machine. Now GemTools will run fast enough that you could actually develop directly in Gemstone if you like. Not that I actually would, Pharo has much better tool support.

I think this will be the first of a run of posts about Gemstone, there's a lot to learn when switching dialects. I can tell you this, well tested code ports easier, so apparently I've got a lot of tests to write that I probably should have written from the start. Oh well, live and learn.

          Justin Timberlake: Owner of Southern Hospitality BBQ restaurant or not?   
Is Justin Timberlake the owner of Southern Hospitality BBQ restaurant in NYC or not? When it first opened he was a partner with two other friends. In February of 2009 it was reported that he was  NOT  an owner of the joint : http://ny.eater.com/archives/2009/02/celeb_watch_justin_timberlake_distances_himself_from_southern_hospitality.php  
"Approximately three years ago, Justin and his close friends, Eytan Sugarman and Trace Ayala, discussed the idea of bringing Memphis-style BBQ and ribs to the New York City marketplace...But that's where the connection ends.Sugarman now operates and primarily owns the restaurant himself...they are not investors, owners or partners, nor do they have any knowledge of or involvement in the operations of the restaurant."


The other day an announcement was made that they are opening a second outpost and all of the sudden he owns its again. Is this just a case of a reporter not checking his facts?Was it released by SH publiscist to garner more attention with JT's name on it? 


Here is the article from the post the other day:
http://www.nypost.com/p/pagesix/southern_hospitality_to_open_second_RN0pZqtWjh3uECQYWsYTtM#ixzz14jLpcDgc


Justin Timberlake and restaurant partners Trace Ayala and Eytan Sugarman will open the second outpost of their Memphis-style barbecue joint, Southern Hospitality, at Ninth Avenue and 45th Street in Hell's Kitchen. The two-level eatery and lounge will be twice the size of the original on Second Avenue at 76th. Investors in the new location include MTV founding father Bob Pittman and OneRepublic lead singer Ryan Tedder. Online oenophile Gary Vaynerchuk will preside over the wine list.

Acknowledge the journey, not just the end result. People will often overlook the hard work and effort that goes in to making your goals a reality. I've been training for over 6 years consistently, with no time off training due to lack of motivation or a loss of passion. I've spent countless months 'bulking' hating the way I look for a year just in order to be where I am today (which is still minimal gains 😂) and spent countless nights cooking and preparing food through high school and university. I'm not trying to toot my own horn here, but instead emphasising the need for persistence. Success doesn't come overnight and it requires a large investment of your time and energy. Don't give up if you feel discouraged, just accept that anything great takes time. So put in the work one day at a time and reap the rewards later! - - - - - - - #eat #like #work #fitnessmodel #chest #gains#transformationtuesday #incredible #china #brazil #russia#beauty #lifestyle #life #great #body #muscles #fashion#cool #hot #model #style #follow  #sexy  #l4l  #guys#comment4comment #instafollow #instalove #npc

          Curmudgeon’s ten minute fix to all the fiscal problems of the national government, the unjust tax system, and the economy, too….   

OK, before I begin, suspend disbelief.


Let’s make some assumptions…assumptions that you and certainly I don’t take for granted.



  • First, let’s assume that this is an active blog that some people still have on their readers. Let’s then assume for a minute that this is an appropriate place to rant about straight-up Washington politics.


  • Let’s assume that the national government is at least legitimate in principle, or could be legitimate if it stuck to the powers and limitations in the written Constitution.


  • To get even more theoretical, let’s assume that there was a group of individuals who had the intelligence, moral integrity and will to truly reform things for the common good.


  • Let’s assume those people got past the gatekeepers and rose to power.


  • Finally (since we’re already in the province of the absurd) let’s assume that I, the Kansas City Curmudgeon, was the leader of this little cabal of right thinking men.

The Curmudgeon Cabal doesn’t have silver bullet to immediately kill the serious moral and cultural monsters that haunt our society. Admittedly, those moral and cultural problems are far more important than taxes, spending and the economy. There just isn’t a quick fix--except perhaps outlawing television, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. What’s been destroyed since the 1920s (or since the French Revolution, or the days of William of Occam) will need to be rebuilt over generations, not months or years.


But there IS a quick fix to the temporal, material problem, and the fix might actually be a first step (or a second step, after fervent prayer and mortification) in addressing the moral/cultural problems. The quick fix is what I’ll call the Curmudgeon Reform Act of 2011. There are 5 elements—so far:



  1. Replace the Social Security scheme with a real savings and disability plan.

  2. Institute a low, simplified tax on ordinary income and long-term capital gains.

  3. Retain or increase taxes on short term speculation.

  4. Restore revenue generating tariffs on imports and adjust excise taxes to cover certain public goods

  5. Institute a new Culture, Welfare and Education tax (“CWE”) that will never be collected.

Here are the details:

1. Replace the Social Security scheme with a real savings and disability plan. Eliminate payroll taxes (Social Security and Medicare). Instead, require, for the first ___ years after the elimination, that every wage earner put 10% of his income in a privately managed, competitive but somewhat regulated welfare plan that provides disability and retirement income. Create a self-funded pension insurance program among the welfare plan providers to ensure at least a subsistence pension. Allow voluntary participation in Social Security and Medicare for people over 45 or so. Continue the employer-side taxes for a short while to help fund the folks currently on, or about to go on, the old system. Eventually, as the people’s savings ethic is restored and our charitable infrastructure is rebuilt, we can eliminate the mandatory savings plan. Or maybe we can’t.


2. Institute a low, simplified tax on ordinary income and long-term capital gains. Reduce taxes on ordinary income and long-term capital gains to a flat 5% or so on all income above the poverty level for each family. No deductions. Simplify the business tax rules so it’s easy to get to a net taxable income, and eliminate things like tax credits, accelerated depreciation, and the like. Tax every individual person and every limited liability entity (corporations, LLCs, LPs and LLPs) that function as a separate legal person. (Yes, this is double taxation, but at 5% / 10%, it’s a reasonable price to pay for the privilege of doing business in a non-recourse entity).


3. Retain or increase high taxes on short term speculation. Keep taxes on short term capital gains at a high level. Let's say 25%. Disallow the write-offs of short term capital losses. Yes, this would be said to “punish” short term investors. Why? Because they’re not really investors; they’re traders. We’ve gone from a society of investors to a society of speculators. Some speculation is necessary to ensure liquidity in our markets and to reward, in some degree, risk taking (that is, taking risks with ones’ own resources). However, high taxes on speculators will hopefully realign our capital markets.


4. Restore revenue generating tariffs on imports and adjust excise taxes to cover certain public goods. Institute modest tariffs on all imported goods. Not 40% or 50%. More like 5% or 10%. The tarriff should be a revenue mechanism, not a protectionist one. We won’t need protectionism if the Curmudgeon reforms are in place. Once again, it will pay to actually make things in the USA. Also, adjust excise taxes on things like motor fuel, as well as fees, to fully recover the cost of providing public goods like highways, so the taxes and the cost of those public goods are balanced and self-supporting.



5. Institute a new Culture, Welfare and Education tax (“CWE”) that will never be collected. Here’s the capstone of the plan: In lieu of all federal welfare, cultural and education programs, the Curmudgeon Cabal will institute a 10% tax on all income above the poverty level for the support of culture, welfare and education (sounds suspiciously like a tithe, doesn’t it?). The beauty of the CWE tax is that if it works, it will never be collected. We will allow a 100% tax credit (not a deduction…a dollar-for-dollar credit) for donations made to qualified charitable organizations. You know….organizations which are now referred to as 501(c)(3)’s. Although we hate bureaucracy and regulation, we acknowledge that we’ll need a few rules about this. Organizations will be subject to some minor regulation, somewhat as they are now, in order to assure legitimacy. They’ll also be classified: the big categories will be (a) physical welfare/poverty, (b) religion, (c) the arts, (d) the environment, and (e) education. Moneys flowing to these organizations will rebuild the societal infrastructure that was in place before the New Deal and the Great Society. The beauty is that the taxpayer--not the government--will decide how to allocate those donations between categories and which organizations within the categories to support. The only substantial restriction on the taxpayer is that no more than half of that 10% tax can go to any one category. Overtime, churches can restore hospitals, private education, and the like. Communities can support the arts (hopefully a restoration of true art, and nothing involving the use of feces). The cost of higher education can come down for those who should pursue it. Private conservation groups can buy and preserve habitats. Yada Yada.


In Conclusion


Now, I didn’t say The Curmudgeon Reform Plan wasn’t crazy. It is.


I didn’t say it would cure instantly the cultural malaise. It won’t.


I didn’t say it would bring about the Catholic confessional state. It can’t.


The plan (and the radical cuts in the federal and state government that go along with it) it be vigorously opposed by the greater DC real estate industry--not just the machine of government itself. The housing and office markets in DC, Montgomery County, Maryland and Fairfax County, Virginia will be devastated as out-of-work bureaucrats leave to find private sector jobs in the Heartland. But heck, maybe it will help the real estate market in Detroit?


All and all, the Curmudgeon Reform Plan can’t be worse that what we’re doing now. And, since this is a sorta, kinda Catholic blog (or at least a blog by a Catholic), I point out that it will be good for Holy Mother Church. I eagerly await the USCCB endorsement.



OK, I’ve already thought of one necessary change. Five percent on ordinary income may be a pretty high rate, considering that President Curmudgeon will be eliminating the federal welfare system, reducing the military to its proper role national defense (instead of imperial domination), ending foreign aid, reinstituting modest revenue-producing tarriffs, and otherwise moving to a consumption-based tax system for roads, etc. Let’s make it 3%.



Cheers!


          In praise of illiteracy....   

As I was desperately looking for comfort, rationalizaton and self-justification for myself and Mrs. Curmudgeon, what with the fact that more than half of the little Curmudgeons are illiterate, I stumbled upon a passage from an "old friend" from graduate school, Richard M Weaver:

What the defenders of present civilization usually mean when they say that modern man is better educated than his forebears is that he is literate in larger numbers. The literacy can be demonstrated; yet one may question whether there has ever been a more deceptive panacea, and we are compelled, after a hundred years of experience, to echo Nietzsche’s bitter observation: “Everyone being allowed to learn to read, ruineth in the long run not only writing but also thinking.” It is not what people can read; it is what they do read, and what they can be made, by any imaginable means, to learn from what they read, that determines the issue of this noble experiment. We have given them a technique of acquisition; how much comfort can we take in the way they employ it? In a society where expression is free and popularity is rewarded they read mostly that which debauches them and they are continuously exposed to manipulation by controllers of the printing machine…. It may be doubted whether one person in three draws what may be correctly termed knowledge from his freely chosen reading matter. The staggering number of facts to which he today has access serves only to draw him away from consideration of first principles, so that his orientation becomes peripheral. And looming above all as a reminder of this fatuity is the tragedy of modern Germany, the one totally literate nation.

--from Ideas Have Consequences (1948), pp. 13-14.

          Comment on A Aloysian, Always an Aloysian! Raise Your Voice Against Renaming SAC Road by Nenari   
Madam Richi, You are deviating the topic. Even I'm obliged as I am one of the staff of the college. I have worked in couple of MNCs before taking up teaching as my profession. Just check the new appointed teachers pay scale of the college, its much above all the other colleges of mangalore and higher than the pay received by a Fresher in any industry anywhere in the country (exceptions always prevail) . Are you regretting about the pea nuts that you are getting? I doubt u being the alumni of the college. Because None who has walked out of the college has gone unsatisfied and always feels proud wen the talk of Aloysius is on. Kindly check the records of the college regarding the qualifications of the staff. Majority of the staff are Qualified as per the rules and regulations set by UGC. May not be as per ur criteria. College getting 'star status' in the academic year 2016-17 (remember only 16 colleges in entire country have this honour), 44th ranking out of 45,000+ colleges in NIRF ( MHRD, Govt of India. NOT PAID RANKING AS MOST OF THE COLLEGES DO) listed 2nd in the state. Is it past glory? The more old SAC, the more efficient it is. If u doubt a bit the capacity of the management just pause for a moment and think of XLRI, Loyola College, St. Joseph's. It's the same people who run it. :-) Just come over to SAC, take a campus tour interact with intellectual giants, get to know things. Kindly done blabber half cooked knowledge. And kindly support the cause because SAC has the capacity of creating hundreds of bankers. And since SAC is here from 137 years u can speak these words in English, we are the first Literate district, Mangalore is the best City to live in the nation.

          Humber kicks off to Canada Day    

Humber Lakeshore created a Canadian-themed campground at their Kick-Off to Canada Day event, celebrating 150 years of confederation with local residents and the Humber community.  

The occasion also marked the grand opening of Lakeshore’s newly renovated Commons Field.

Etobicoke-Lakeshore MP James Maloney commemorated the new space with a plaque to acknowledge the financial support from the Canada 150 Community Infrastructure Program.


          I'm Back   
So, I'm back from War with stories to tell and victories to report.

The unbelted tourney went very well. There were 7 or 8 teams (I don't really remember), and our team beat all but one of them during the tournament. We represented our Kingdom with prowess and other than that one other Kingdom, we were victorious. As to that one other Kingdom, well, they went undefeated. This didn't sit well with us so we hatched a plan. We politely asked them for a rematch. Something along the lines of:

"We know you won the tourney. We are not debating that, nor would we try to take that glory from you. However, we want another chance at you. We believe in our heart of hearts that we can do better!"

They agreed. Both teams lined up again to do battle. Guess what. We beat them! Then once we had beat them, we turned around, and there was another team waiting to face us. It seems that they weren't too happy at loosing to us, and they believed that they could do better against us. Well, it would be rude of us to ask for that opportunity from one Kingdom and then not grant it to another, so we agreed. Without any rest between the two bouts, we lined up and went after the second Kingdom. We beat them too. Although another Kingdom was the winner of the day in the tourney, we held our heads up high. I was and am proud of the fact that I was a member of that team.

Later on in the week, my Kingdom held its court. This is where the current King and Queen recognize people from the Kingdom for their service and skill. About halfway through the court, I was called in to receive a fairly high service award. I do not believe that I have earned the rite to carry this award, but I will not question the wisdom of The Crown. They felt that I deserve it, so I have to suck it up and take it. I have a small admission to make however. When they called my name, I was really hoping for the next level fighting award. There is a small part of me that was a little disappointed that I didn't receive that award, but I am still overjoyed at being recognized for my contributions to my local SCA group and the Kingdom at large. There are other potential problems with me receiving this service award, but they fall in the realm of society politics, and I won't go into the details with you now. I'll just have to let the chips fall where they may.

My daughter was a champ during the whole War experience. She became overheated a few times and was a little cranky at others (weren't we all), but for the most part, she was exceptional. I can not say enough about the love and support I received from my wife and child. They are truly my inspiration. Anything I am, I owe solely to them.

I also have to acknowledge my camp mates from this War. Over the past few years, we've been building a nice little group that camps together during the War. They are from wildly different backgrounds, and their only common bond is me. They all are friends of mine that I invited to camp with me. Not all of them have always liked each other so that can sometimes lead to problems in camp. They came together as a group and were as polite and friendly as long time friends. In times of difficulty (there were several weather related issues), they came together and served each other in times of need. When War was finally over, we all parted as more than just friends, but as a family. Most of us live in the same town, but we won't come together like that again until probably next year.

This post is getting rather long, so I'll just say that, once again, War was the cornerstone of my year. There are great changes on the horizon (both in the SCA and in my mundane life). I might post about those changes in the future, but for now I have to somehow re-acclimate to mundane life. It won't be easy.

          Frag This!   
Okay, this one is firmly in the technical part of my knowledge. So it's 10:42 pm and I'm still at work. I probably will be at work for a while longer. Why you ask? Because sometimes you just have to learn the hard way that not every utility works the way you'd like it to.

Let's see...where best to begin? I think I'll start with about 3:30 pm when I was gathering information on my servers to document my network (yes, Grey, you've gotten to me. I need a network diagram). So there I am, writing down the volume sizes and how much free space is left on them, and low and behold one of my servers has an "interesting" situation. It seems that out of a 70 Gig hard drive (it's actually a series of hard drives in a RAID configuration) there's only 1 Gig available free space. This doesn't seem right to me, so I go through all the network shares and check their sizes, and then I check all the regular directories and their sizes, and it all adds up to only about 35 or 40 Gig. Where in Hades did my other 35 Gig wander off to. The next logical step is to check the fragmentation level of this particular server. This is where it gets interesting. Apparently, this machine is more than 50% fragmented. "No problem!" you say? "Just run the defragmentation utility!" you say? Yeah, I tried that, but unfortunantly, the utility requires at least 15% of total drive space to run efficiently. With only 1 Gig left, I don't have the kind of space. To make matters worse, this server is the storage location for all of the users' profiles and document storage directories. This means that I can't start moving things around until after hours.

So now it's after hours. I move out enough of the directories to clear out the required 15% of the hard drive space, and I run defrag. Much to my surprise, instead of gaining disk space back, I wind up loosing disk space with every run. Every time I hope that it's just a matter of cleaning up some of the fragmented files. So every time, I clear some more files out and try running defrag again (and again, and again).

Finally, I view one of the defrag reports a little more carefully. As it turns out, there are two files that simply won't be defragmented. Those two files are \System Volume Information\36{38008..... basically they are paging files. My lovely, little, harmless 2 Gig paging files have grown to the size of 35 Gig based solely on fragmentation levels. The file itself is only 2 Gig in size, but due to fragmentation, this little gem takes up 35 Gigs of hard drive space. It seems that the built in defragmentation utility isn't capable of defragmenting an active page file. Every time I run defrag it uses memory (so the paging file grows) and because it's the active paging file, it doesn't get defragmented so I loose space instead of gaining it.

How do you get out of this fine mess I've gotten myself into? I'm so glad you asked. You need to delete the paging file by going into virtual memory and setting it to "None". By the way, Windows doesn't like this idea, and it will warn you that this is a "Very Bad Thing (tm)". Once you remove the file, you'll need to reboot. Then, after the reboot, you need to recreate your paging file with a more reasonable size (say 2 Gig). Now you'll need to reboot again. Suddenly, the drive that was was reporting 1 Gig free, now says it has over 55 Gigs free! It's amazing.

So here I sit at 11:00 pm. Putting files back where I found them, and trying to recreate the file structure exactly as it was. I'm sure there are going to be problems tomorrow morning with files missing for someone. They won't know I was here until after midnight, and frankly, they wouldn't care if they did. It just has to work for them. I've learned a valuable lesson out of all this. It's one that I knew before, but it never hurts to be reminded. Always keep an eye on your fragmentation levels. Run defrag regularly, and for Heaven's sake make sure that the source of your fragmentation problems aren't in your paging files (otherwise the built in defragmentation simply won't work). Now you know! And knowing is half the battle!

I'm going to go home tonight (actually early tomorrow morning) and kiss my wife and brand new baby daughter (oh yeah! did I forget to mention that? I'll have to blog it another time).

          GROUP DISCUSSIONS - - - - PROVE YOUR ABILITIES   

While selection tools and techniques like tests, interviews etc. provide good data about an individual, they fall short in providing real life data of how an individual would be performing in a real life situation especially a group situation. Team work being an integral part of the any work profile, it is important to ascertain group and inter-personal qualities of an individual. Group discussion is a useful tool to ascertain these qualities and many organizations use GDs as a selection tool along with Personal Interviews, aptitude tests etc. A GD is an activity where
Groups of 8-10 candidates are formed into a leaderless group, and are given a specific situation to analyse and discuss within a given time limit, which may vary between twenty minutes and forty-five minutes, or

They may be given a case study and asked to come out with a solution for a problem

They may be given a topic and are asked to discuss the same

1. Preparing for a Group Discussion:
While GD reflects the inherent qualities of an individual, appearing for it unprepared may not augur well for you. These tips would help you prepare for GDs:
Reading: This is the first and the most crucial step in preparation. This is a never ending process and the more you read, the better you are in your thoughts. While you may read anything to everything, you must ensure that you are in good touch with current affairs, the debates and hot topics of discussion and also with the latest in the IT and ITES industry. Chances are the topics would be around these. Read both for the thoughts as well as for data. Also read multiple view points on the same topic and then create your point of view with rationale. Also create answers for counter arguments for your point of view. The electronic media also will be of good use here.
Mocks: Create an informal GD group and meet regularly to discuss and exchange feedback. This is the best way to prepare. This would give you a good idea about your thoughts and how well can you convince. Remember, it is important that you are able to express your thoughts well. The better you perform in these mocks the better would be you chances to perform on the final day. Also try to interact and participate in other GD groups. This will develop in you a skill to discuss with unknown people as well.
2. During the Group Discussion:
What do the panelists assess:Some of the qualities assessed in a GD are:
Leadership Skills - Ability to take leadership roles and be able to lead, inspire and carry the team along to help them achieve the group's objectives.
Communication Skills -

Candidates will be assessed in terms of clarity of thought, expression and aptness of language. One key aspect is listening. It indicates a willingness to accommodate others views.
Interpersonal Skills -

People skills are an important aspect of any job. They are reflected in the ability to interact with other members of the group in a brief situation. Emotional maturity and balance promotes good interpersonal relationships. The person has to be more people centric and less self-centered.
Persuasive Skills -

The ability to analyze and persuade others to see the problem from multiple perspectives.
GD is a test of your ability to think, your analytical capabilities and your ability to make your point in a team-based environment.

These are some of the sub-skills that also get assessed with the skills mentioned above:
- Clarity of thought
- Group working skills (especially during a group task of case study discussion)
- Conflict handling
- Listening and probing skills
- Knowledge about the subject and individual point of view
- Ability to create a consensus
- Openess and flexibility towards new ideas
- Data based approach to decision making

While, it is not possible to reflect all these qualities in a short time, you would do well if you are able to show a couple or more qualities and avoid giving negative evidence on others.
Participating in the GD:
Generally, with the topic you are given 2-3 minutes to structure your thoughts. Make good use of this time. Note down all the points that come to your mind. This would help you not to forget any important points and also to listen to others during the discussion. If you have been given a case, reading it carefully, underline salient points and make notes.
Should I start or not:Start the discussion only when you are thoroughly conversant with the topic/case or else let others speak first. If you decide to start, it is best to elaborate the topic and put forward various dimensions of the subject in front of the group. If it is a case, list down the facts briefly, mention what needs to be done and details factors that you think are crucial to decision making in that case. Do not put forth your opinions, arguments and conclusions to the group as the next speaker might argue against them leaving you with a feeling that your best points have been knocked off. Elaborating the topic for discussion would reflect upon your clarity of thought, holistic approach and leadership skills (providing the group an approach to discuss a problem thread bare). Speak for not more than a minute as others would be too anxious to speak and you might be interrupted in-between. If you decide not to start, make sure that you are amongst the first 3-4 speakers. After that, the best points would already have been taken and you would not be able to create an impact. Some effective ways to initiate a discussion would be to make/give:
i. Quotes
ii. Definitions
iii. Questions
iv. Facts, figures and statistics
vi. Short stories
vii. General statements


How do I take my chance to speak:
Trying to interrupt others while speaking would only harm your chances. Instead, you may try to maintain an eye-contact with the speaker. This would show your listening skills also and would help you gauge from his eye-movement and pitch of voice that he is about to close his inputs. You can quickly take it from there. Also, try and link your inputs with what he has spoken whether you are adding to or opposing his arguments. This would reflect that you are actually being participative rather than just doing a collective monologue.
How do I communicate in a GD:
Be crisp and to the point. Be fact based and avoid making individual opinions that do not have a factual base. Make eye contact with all the members in the group and avoid looking at the panelists while speaking. The average duration of the group discussion provides an average of about 2-3 minutes per participant to speak and you should try to speak about 3-4 times. Hence, you need to be really crisp to reflect the most in those 30-40 sec. slots.
How do I convince others and make them agree to my view point:
A lot of candidates make it their mission to make the group reach to a conclusion on the topic. Do not forget that some of the topics have been eternal debates and there is no way you can get an agreement in 15 mins. on them. The objective is not to make others toe your line but to provide fact based, convincing arguments which create an impact. Stick to this approach.
Do leadership skills include moderating the group discussion:
This is a myth and many people do try to impose their order on the GD, ordering people when to speak and when not to. This only reflects poor leadership. Leadership in a GD would be reflected by your clarity of thought, ability to expand the topic in its different dimensions, providing an opportunity to a silent participant to speak, listening to others and probing them to provide more information. Hence, work on these areas rather than be a self-appointed moderator of the group.
Listening:
This is a key quality assessed during the GD about which many participants forget. Active listening can fetch you credit points and would also provide you with data to discuss. Also, if you have an average of 2-3 minutes to speak, the rest of the 20-25 minutes is required to spent in active listening. For this, maintain eye contact with the speakers, attend to them (like nodding, using acknowledging words like -I see ok, fine, great etc.). This would also make you be the centre of attraction as you would appear non-threatening to the speakers.
Behaviour during the GD:
Be patient; don't get upset if anyone says anything you object to. Stay objective and don't take the discussion personally. Also, remember the six C's of communication - Clarity, Completeness, Conciseness, Confidence, Correctness and Courtesy. Be appreciative & receptive to ideas from other people and open-minded but do not let others to change your own viewpoint. Be active and interested throughout. It is better to participate less if you have no clue of the topic. You may listen to others and take clues from there and speak. You would be assessed on a range of different skills and you may think that leadership is key, you need to be careful that you don't dominate the discussion.
Quality Vs Quantity:
Often, participants think that success in group discussions depends on how much and how loudly they speak. Interestingly, it's the opposite. Also, making your point on the topic, your views are important and the group needs to know. This will tell you are knowledgeable and that you participate in groups
Summarizing:
If you have not been able to initiate the discussion, try to summaries and close it. Good summarizing would get you good reward points. A conclusion is where the whole group decides in favour or against the topic and most GDs do not have a closure. But every GD can be summarized by putting forth what the group has discussed in a nutshell. Keep the following points in mind while summarizing a discussion:
Avoid raising new points.
Avoid stating only your viewpoint.
Avoid dwelling only on one aspect of the GD
Keep it brief and concise.
It must include all the important points that came out during the GD
If you are asked to summarise a GD, it means the GD has come to an end.
Do not add anything once the GD has been summarised.
Some Positive Task Roles in a Group Discussion:You may want to play one or more of them:
Initiator
Information seeker
Information giver
Procedure facilitator
Opinion seeker
Opinion giver
Clarifier
Social Supporter
Harmonizer
Tension Reliever
Energizer
Compromiser
Gatekeeper
Summarizer
Negative Roles to be Avoided

Hi Lew -

Thanks for getting back to me and offering to help me sort this out -- I would be most grateful if you were to post something on your blog or otherwise point me in the right direction. (However limited your knowledge of Russian bookplates may be, I can assure you that mine is far more limited!)
This is what I have figured out so far...

The translation says:

"From the books of Б. М. Тенин." 

The foreground graphic is obviously Shakespeare's portrait with  a quote from Hamlet, Act 1 scene 5, lines 190-1: 
"The time is out of joint. O cursèd spite / That ever I was born to set it right!"

From what I have gleaned, Boris Mihaylovich Tenin (Б. М. Тенин) was a famous Soviet actor born in 1905. In addition to his work on stage, film, and television, he was quite a bibliophile and collected bookplates. I found -- and have attached -- a picture of Tenin in his library, with what appear to be some bookplate designs, one of which also seems to have Shakespeare's portrait. I can't read Russian, so I have no idea what the text says. I've asked my daughter, who is more adept with computers and research, to try to figure it out.

As for this particular bookplate, I have no idea who the artist that designed (and signed) it is, nor where this particular bookplate came from. It was given to my daughter as a gift over a decade ago. Any help or advice you can give would be most appreciated.

Thanks!
Susan


Hi Lew,
          Any idea who this artist may be? LBM are the initials but I have no idea.

                         Best,

                             Tom

I suspect this was an honorarium plate for Fidel Castro. It may be a Russian Plate.  Your input would be appreciated. Thanks,
Lew

          150 Things to Know on Canada’s 150th Birthday   
On the occasion of Canada’s 150th birthday here are 150 things to know...

1. Today, Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau is one of the world’s most popular political leaders.
2. Justin Trudeau emerged out of the shadows and into the political spotlight when delivering the eulogy at his father’s funeral, the late Pierre Elliot Trudeau in September 2000.
3. The four pallbearers at the funeral were Justin Trudeau, the Aga Khan, former President Jimmy Carter and…the late Cuban autocrat Fidel Castro.
4. Justin Trudeau’s brother, Alexandre Trudeau, is a fearless filmmaker, who was Embedded in Baghdad before, during and after the U.S. invasion in 2003.
5. While Justin is a social media star, his father was the true showman, who once famously pirouetted behind Queen Elizabeth’s back.
6. In fact, this was just one of many colorful moments. To this day in Canada to give the ‘Pierre Trudeau salute’ means something, very interesting…
7. And who can forget the moment featuring the Rolling Stones, the paparazzi and the Prime Minister.
8. However, the elder Trudeau also did some amazing things for Canada. For starters, until 1982 when he brought it back to Canada, the constitution was effectively governed by the Queen of England.
9. That same year he pushed through the Canadian Charter of Rights & Freedoms.
10. This protection of Canadian rights and diversity did not emerge overnight. Back in 1971, the elder Trudeau declared the new Canadian multiculturalism policy.
11. Four years earlier, in 1967, Pierre Trudeau uttered these famous words: “There's no place for the state in the bedrooms of the nation,” when he decriminalized homosexuality in sweeping changes to the criminal code.
12. It took Canada until 2005 to legalize same-sex marriage, being the first nation outside of Europe and fourth in the world to do so.
13. However, while things were eventful under Pierre Trudeau they were also turbulent. He suspended civil liberties during the ‘October Crisis’ in 1970, when he invoked the ‘War Measures Act’ after a provincial cabinet minister was kidnapped by separatist militants.
14. He also enacted the National Energy Program in the 1980s which effectively federalized revenues from energy resources in Alberta, creating long-term hostility towards the federal Liberal Party in the years to come in Western Canada.
15. Trudeau was also an antagonist to separatist ambitions in Quebec, delivering two fiery speeches, one in 1980, and another in 1995 to thwart referendums for independence.
16. All in all, the elder Trudeau served for 15 years but he wasn’t the longest serving Prime Minister. That would be William Lyon Mackenzie King, who served for 21 years.
17. In second place was the founding Prime Minister, John A. Macdonald, who served for 18 years – and who also had a bit of a drinking problem.
18. When Canada was founded in 1867, there were only four provinces: Ontario, Quebec, New Brunswick and Nova Scotia.
19. In fact it was not until 1949 that the last province, Newfoundland joined Canada, and that was only after a barely won referendum.
20. Canada also has three Territories: the Northwest Territories, Yukon, and Nunavat, the latter being formed in 1999.
21. The country is extremely ‘big’, the second largest in the world with over 2 million lakes, among other things.
22. But, 75% of Canadians actually live within 100 miles of the U.S.-Canada border.
23. This may be one of the reasons why the U.S.-Canada economic relationship is the largest in the world, estimated to total US$630 billion in 2016 alone.
24. Close to 30,000 trucks cross the border every single day between the two countries.
25. While things are rosy today, it wasn’t always so. During the War of 1812, the Canadas, as the British colonies were known then, went to battle with the U.S., ultimately burning down the White House on August 24, 1814.
26. War was quite frequent back then due to competing French, British, and American ambitions. After fierce fighting, the 1763 Treaty of Paris essentially gave the British control over much of French Canadian land.
27. In addition, one cannot forget that much of Canadian land belonged to the First Nations, who have been marginalized, ostracizied, occupied and colonized throughout much of Canadian history.
28. During Canada’s first years, a group of people called the Metis who were ethnically mixed between First nations and European descent, rose up in rebellion, ultimately establishing a short-lived provisional government in 1870.
29. The leader of that rebellion Louis Riel was ultimately ranked as the 11th Greatest Canadian.
30. That battle was only one of many for the acknowledgement of the rights of First Nations. One of the worst stains on Canadian history was the residential school system that at one point put a third of all First Nations children under the care of the state.
31. Thousands of students died, and many more were subject to emotional, physical, and sexual abuse.
32. While today, people acknowledge some of these aspects of history, the fight is not over. One of the scandals that was a campaign issue for Justin Trudeau, was the plight of up to 4,000 missing or murdered aboriginal women.
33. Canada’s history has not always been one of inclusivity. The Chinese Exclusion or Immigration Act of 1923 effectively banned immigrants of Chinese origin.
34. This was a culmination of violence and protests against immigrants from East and South Asia, including riots in 1907 in Vancouver, British Columbia.
35. Today, whites are expected to become a minority in Vancouver by 2031 (although I suspect this has already happened).
36. 20.6% of Canadians are foreign-born today and 19.1% identify themselves as visible minorities. 3% of the population identifies as Muslim.
