          Mengapa Yahudi?   

Mengapa Yahudi Terlalu Berkuasa?

Oleh : Dr Farrukh Saleem
Semakan Oleh : Mohd Taha Hassan

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Richard Levin, presiden universiti tersohor Yale Universiti ialah seorang Yahudi.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Mempengaruhi

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam kurang keupayaan untuk menghasilkan ilmu pengetahuan.

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

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

Kesimpulan: Dunia Islam gagal menyalurkan ilmu pengetahuan.

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

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

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

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

          Auge in Auge : Porträtfotografie von Michael Lebek   
Angeregt durch die gute Resonanz zu Michael Lebeks Ausstellungen 2016/17: „Der entscheidende Moment“ im Museum Nitschareuth, der Vogtlandhalle Greiz, im Kreiskrankenhaus Greiz und der Ausstellung: „Musikerporträt“ im Gärtnerhaus Mylau - waren diese der Auslöser, begonnene Projekte weiter zu führen und die Fotografie noch intensiver zu betreiben. Dazu gehören die Themen: Musiker live im Konzert, alpine Landschaften und deren Alpenpflanzen oberhalb der Baumgrenze, die Dokumentationen zur Restaurierung alter Maschinen und Fahrzeuge in der Werkstatt von Holger Völkel, Landschaften, Bauten u.a. Ein neues Fotoprojekt ist während der Reise durch West-Kuba im November 2016 entstanden. Auge in Auge fotografierte Michael Lebek die Gesichter der Kubanerinnen und Kubaner in den Straßen von Santa Clara, Havanna, Cienfuegos und Trinidad. Auch in den Dörfern wie im Vinales Tal fand er beeindruckende Menschen. Es entstanden über 50 Porträtfotografien. 30 der besonders ausdrucksstärksten Exponate, werden in dieser Ausstellung gezeigt. Wie es auf Kuba zu dieser Fotografie kam und wie es gelang Los Cubanos vor die Kamera zu bringen, bleibt bis zur Vernissage am: 03. August 2017 um 17 Uhr ein Geheimnis. Musikalisch wird die Vernissage von dem Musiker Ralf Dietsch begleitet. Sommerabend, kubanische Eindrücke, ein begnadeter Musiker, das lädt ein zu mehr. Ab 18 Uhr wird in der Cafe-Bar „CityLife“, Kirchplatz 6 eingeladen zu einer karibischen After-Work-Party. Ralf Dietsch musiziert bei Cocktails und karibischen Flair. Und Salsa? Sie sind herzlich eingeladen!

          Ellipses and Splines to Lines and Arcs   

I know there is a lot of posts out there of people trying to convert splines and ellipses in inventor to lines and arc's to be compatible with CNC machines.  There have been solutions as far as using AutoCAD commands to retracing geometry. 

 

As anyone found a different, possibly within Inventor process for this?  Or something that is what they feel a viable solution? 

 

We typically start by having views of the part on a drawing file and then export that into a DXF.  If the pieces aren't modeled flat/aka curved surface projecting up the result is typically a spline. 

 

Retracing over these manually is not an option for us as we have 1,000's of custom ones a year. 

 

What we are trying to come up with is a work flow:

1.  If it's possible in inventor somehow to clean this up prior to exporting and being able to programmatically follow an existing curved surface if we have to retrace it with lines and arcs,

2.  Is the best solution to post process with auto cad commands, flatten, etc...

3.  Do we combine our process with a 3rd party app, or

4.  Is there a really good command in another more cam software (NX, MasterCam, Rhino, Spaceclaim, etc...)

 

If we convert items into polylines from splines/ellipses we can't have a trillion points along that polyline.  Saw will not be happy and process inefficiently.

 

Thoughts?  There something that has been developed in the past few years maybe we are missing?

Is this programmatically possible via the API?

 

We know we can create a sketch, project the geometry of the spline and start placing lines, arcs but can't find a way to know programmatically if we are following the original geometry close enough.  We also couldn't see that there where any type of control points in and inventor spline object other than the start and end point.

I was initially looking into those, but some of them ran almost as high as a monitor would cost. If my memory serves me correctly as well the Tandy EX does have an ISA expansion slot(s.)  I know part of the case slides off to reveal expansion ports for memory and expansion cards.  Just looked into them again and found one for a reasonable price, it's says it's a 16-bit card which I assume can handle the 8-bit video produced by the computer.

          Black Bolt: Royal Likeness   

Over the years, Blackagar Boltagon has filled many roles: leader of the Inhumans, husband, father, intergalactic ruler—and now, prisoner! Writer Saladin Ahmed and artist Christian Ward set up quite a challenge for the one-time king when they launched BLACK BOLT a few months back: escape from an epic space prison!

Teamed up with the likes of Absorbing Man, Black Bolt continues to figure out how to flee the seemingly inescapable jail in the stars so he can find his way back to his family. We talked with Ward about designing Black Bolt’s cage, working on the silent hero, and making his mark on a childhood favorite.

Marvel.com: This book has definitely taken Black Bolt in some unexpected directions. How has it been crafting these stories with Saladin so far?

Christian Ward: I’m drawn to stories I can’t predict. I think that’s one reason why shows like “Breaking Bad” and “Game of Thrones” are so enjoyable. Reading Saladin’s scripts for BLACK BOLT [has] had those same unexpected elements and I’ve loved reading them. Bringing a story to life that you’re already enjoying in its script form is easy. I have a background in creator-owned comics; I’m used to working on books I’m personally invested in and working on BLACK BOLT with Saladin has felt no different.

I think he would agree that we’ve really clicked working on BLACK BOLT. It’s been an absolute joy and I feel very lucky to be working with Saladin. I felt like we’re telling one story together infused with all these personal elements. I definitely feel like we’re trying to say something with BLACK BOLT, whilst remembering it’s a super hero comic and it should also be a lot of fun. Even with his first comic, Saladin’s going to be [among] many peoples’ very favorite writers. He’s certainly one of mine now and hopefully this will be the first of many projects we do together.

Marvel.com: The story mixes elements from classic prison break tales with sci-fi and super heroes. Do you enjoy playing with those pieces and building new structures with them?

Christian Ward: I do! Lots of my previous projects—like ODY-C for instance—have been about clashing genres together. I love the tension you get from mixing disparate ingredients. With BLACK BOLT, as well as the genres you mentioned, I’ve been having fun approaching parts like a Gothic horror, not just with the scenery and the lighting but also trying to use page layouts to make it feel foreboding or claustrophobic.

There have been pages where I’ve tried to make the panel [borders] feel as much of the prison bars as the ones I’ve actually drawn. Becoming narrower and narrower as our characters are contained or crushed within them. It’s been fun to allow the different genres, like horror, influence how certain elements of the book look and even let each issue feel a little different. For instance, in issue #4 I’ve been playing with formal nine-panel grids and half tone textures as a way to exaggerate the old school comic book-ness of the issue. It keeps me on my toes and hopefully it keeps the [book] exciting from issue to issue for the reader.

Marvel.com: You’re setting much of the action inside of this jail. How much of it did you have designed ahead of time?

Christian Ward: Lots of great design is about tension and what Saladin had in mind for our prison was perfect to play to that idea. He had this idea that it would be equal parts Victorian gaol and [Jack] Kirby techno, so for every stone pillar there has to be this contrasting piece of insane, impossible machinery.

I read about Panopticon so I knew I wanted there to be eyes everywhere because big floating over-watching eyes are always creepy and it had to feel huge, I wanted Black Bolt to feel insignificant there. I certainly didn’t design a physical place like an architect would, rather I spent a lot of time thinking about how it would feel, or maybe how the inmates would feel being held there. I wanted the prison to feel intangible, like a monster glimpsed in the darkness, a place that was ever changing. Somewhere it would be impossible to get your footing or stay sane. An M.C. Escher drawing come to life.

Marvel.com: BLACK BOLT has incorporated some interesting characters from Absorbing Man to Death’s Head. How has it been putting your own spin on them and making them work in this story?

Christian Ward: The first thing I have to say is what a huge and continuing honor it is to be drawing these characters that so many greats have drawn before me. It’s very exciting to, as you say, put a spin on them. It’s a tricky balancing act to honor what’s come before and try to shine a different light on them. Hopefully success comes from loving the characters in the first place. For instance, when I was a teenager Death’s Head was my favorite character growing up in the UK. He was my Hulk, my Spider-Man, my X-Men. He was my number one. So when I came to design my take on him I let that love guide the design. What I love about the character—that’s what I bring to the forefront.

And oh boy, Absorbing Man! I love drawing Carl. This might be Black Bolt’s book, but I think Crusher’s the heart of it. It’s been so much fun to draw him not as a bad guy, but as a man, and try and make him feel real. Whereas I’m trying to keep Bolt at arm’s length I really want readers to feel very empathetic towards Crusher. I’ve really grown to love the guy so I hope that’s coming through.

Marvel.com: Does Black Bolt’s silence offer any particular challenges when you’re working from panel to panel?

Christian Ward: It’s a huge challenge. I remember reading about the difference between TV, movie, and stage acting and the “volume” in which actors have to project or emote in each. Unlike in theater, for instance, on a giant movie screen the smallest of facial movements can be read. I’m aiming for giant movie screen acting here. I’ve always enjoyed comic book acting and it’s huge fun to try and convey all the subtleties of Bolt’s face. I really wanted to have him feel reserved and withdrawn from us but that as the story progressed the wall that he’d built up around himself—his own personal inner prison wall—would break down and we’d see more of those emotions showing on his face and in his body language. You know, as much as I love the big cosmic moments of the book, it was the challenge of drawing Bolt that made me take the project on and I’m having the time of my life with it.

BLACK BOLT #3 breaks into stores on July 5, with issue #4 following on August 2, thanks to Saladin Ahmed and Christian Ward.


          No Shelter From the Woj Bombs   

On Wednesday, Yahoo’s Adrian Wojnarowski tweeted out some cataclysmic NBA news.

This was a blockbuster move—the Los Angeles Clippers’ stellar point guard signing up to play with recent MVP runner-up James Harden—a transaction huge enough that it may affect which team loses to the Golden State Warriors in next year’s conference finals.

If you read the replies to Wojnarowski’s tweet, though, one of the biggest NBA trades in years seems secondary—overshadowed by the man who broke the story.

In the parlance of NBA Twitter, Wojnarowski dropped a “Woj bomb,” hence the deployment of mushroom cloud GIFs.

In his 10 years at Yahoo—the company gave Wojnarowski his own website, the Vertical, in 2016—the NBA reporter built a reputation as the basketball world’s Eye of Providence, a mysterious, all-seeing entity who breaks news with terrifying speed and accuracy.

Judging by the reaction to his tweets, one might get the sense that he is actually the one setting these deals into motion—that teams make moves because Wojnarowski reports them rather than the other way around. It’s all part of the mythos of Woj, a cult of personality devoted to a man who doesn’t seem to have much of a discernible personality beyond “reporter who is always on Twitter.”

On Saturday, Wojnarowski will be joining ESPN, a move that coincides with (and in certain exceedingly nerdy circles perhaps overshadows) the start of the NBA’s free agency period. For years, his identity has been wrapped up in the fact that he doesn’t work for the Worldwide Leader in Sports. He’s been known to pick at ESPN in his columns, sometimes referring to them as an unnamed “cable sports company.” His defection to the world’s most powerful sports media company at once feels surprising and inevitable. It’s a marriage of questionable harmony but undoubtable impact, the equivalent of hiring a T. rex to hem your pants.

In his tenure at Yahoo, Wojnarowski has been a one-man wrecking crew, often out-scooping the world’s sports media hydra on the strength of his connections and unparalleled ability to type with his thumbs. Earlier this week, in his last days at the Vertical, he broke the news that Jeff Van Gundy—who works for ESPN—will be coaching USA Basketball’s World Cup qualifying team.

Wojnarowski’s unique ability to delight his fans and bedevil his rivals has been most evident during the NBA draft, when he managed to report, via Twitter, the upcoming selections well before they’re announced on ESPN’s live broadcast. The fact that one guy could ruin the drama and pageantry of a manicured television event infuriated ESPN execs and undoubtedly contributed to the company’s decision to make him an offer he couldn’t refuse.

In tandem with Wojnarowski’s hiring, ESPN laid off a number of talented NBA reporters, many of whom covered individual teams and contributed postgame recaps and analysis. They also terminated Marc Stein, who has long been Wojnarowski’s biggest competitor. Stein is a prodigious reporter in his own right, and many within the company have expressed dismay at his departure. Given that it seems like the network is shifting toward breaking news and scoops, there’s only one logical explanation for laying off Stein: ESPN’s suits feel it’s important to have Wojnarowski be the unquestioned leader of their NBA scoop machine. If you’re looking for an explanation for why that might be, you should ask someone who has better sources than I do.

ESPN, which pays $1.4 billion annually for the rights to televise NBA games, wants to claim total ownership of almost every NBA storyline. The network’s coverage of the NFL provides an instructive example. In 2013, Deadspin did a nice play-by-play of a story the network created out of thin air and subsequently covered to death. It began on SportsCenter, when one of ESPN's NFL pundits said, “I truly believe Colin Kaepernick could be one of the greatest quarterbacks ever.” ESPN got Kaepernick’s response to the statement, and that response was then covered at length on the network’s myriad shouting-head programs. The pundit who made the comment eventually became a featured guest across its various platforms, and the issue was debated for days until a natural endpoint was reached. (It somehow became about Tim Tebow.)

ESPN has been built to trim every last edible bit from a story, and with basketball’s greatest rumormonger and scoop-getter at its disposal, there’s no telling what the Worldwide Leader will now be capable of. My best guess is it will look a lot like what Gustavus Swift did to cows back in the 19th century.

Swift owned and operated one of the largest slaughterhouses in Chicago, but selling salted pork scraps wasn’t enough for him. In the late 1800s, the market demanded fresh beef, which meant cattle were shipped live to Eastern population centers where they would be butchered and sold after transit. Swift had a nose for inefficiency, and he got a great whiff of it with each and every steer-filled boxcar that passed through Chicago on its way east. If his company could somehow slaughter and butcher the beef in Chicago, he’d be able to expand his operation while more efficiently meeting demand.

To facilitate this, Swift hired an engineer to design a refrigerated train car that could ship dressed meat over long distances without sacrificing freshness. The Swift-owned cars were loaded with ice in Wisconsin, packed with beef at Swift’s Chicago slaughterhouse, and then sent east and sold for maximum profit. The supply process was so efficient and direct, a side of beef in the freezer of a New York wholesaler would hang off the same hook as the cow from which it was cut back in Chicago weeks prior.

It is perhaps a bit on the nose that the process Swift pioneered is known as “vertical integration.” The man ESPN lured from the Vertical will provide the grist for a never-ending mill of debate shows, news programs, and interview segments. The Wall Street Journal recently reported that the NBA receives as much attention on Twitter during summer free agency as it does during the regular season. ESPN is counting on its ability to grab that attention by harnessing the multikiloton power of the Woj bomb.

Consider, though, that the two biggest NBA stories of the past five years—LeBron James’ return to Cleveland and Kevin Durant’s move to Golden State—got broken via personal essays published in Sports Illustrated and the Players’ Tribune respectively, not via reporters on Twitter. If a player is savvy enough, he can circumvent the scoop machine and take ownership of his own breaking news, Adrian Wojnarowski be damned.

If history is any indicator, the establishment won’t give up the means of production without a fight. In the words of Karl Marx, “Tune into First Take for more reaction.”

          Analysis: "Bad" foreign firms drive U.S. manufacturing jobs revival   

By Lesley Wroughton and Howard Schneider

SPARTANBURG/CHARLESTON, South Carolina (Reuters) - Years before Donald Trump began promising to bring back good manufacturing jobs by getting tough with U.S. trade partners, such jobs have already been on the rise, largely thanks to foreign companies now cast as villains in Trump's narrative.

Reuters analysis of federal jobs data shows that out of 656,000 new manufacturing jobs created between 2010 and 2014, two thirds can be attributed to foreign direct investment.

More recent jobs numbers are not yet available, but over $700 billion in foreign capital has poured in over the last two years bringing total foreign investment to $3.7 trillion at the end of 2016, a world record. (Graphic: http://tmsnrt.rs/2sWkzTB)

Now foreign companies that have spent billions of dollars on U.S. factories and local leaders who host them worry that global supply networks that back those investments will fray if Trump makes good on his pledge to roll back trade liberalization.

The U.S. president has threatened to tear up North American Free Trade Agreement with Canada and Mexico and slap higher tariffs on nations that run trade surpluses with the United States, such as Germany or China. The administration is also discussing tighter immigration rules and more security screening of investment.

The tough message helped sway swing northeastern and Midwestern Rust Belt states Trump's way in the 2016 election, but puts him at odds with companies and local leaders in the south, which has driven the recent growth in manufacturing jobs.

The southern states have voted for Trump, but have also spent decades wooing foreign companies with flexible labor laws, financial incentives and investment in ports, roads and other infrastructure.

POSTER CHILD AND WHIPPING BOY

The courtship has spawned new auto plants from Kentucky to Georgia, and a new Airbus plant in Mobile, Alabama.

Few places highlight the gap between Trump's rhetoric and local aspirations better than Spartanburg in South Carolina.

German carmaker BMW has invested here $8 billion in a 1.2 million square foot (11.15 hectares) assembly plant, which has become the largest single exporter of cars by value from the United States.

South Carolina Governor Henry McMaster, a Republican and Trump supporter, credits the German automaker for putting his state on the global investment map.

"The presence of this company changed everything in the trajectory of our state," McMaster said on Monday at an event unveiling BMW's newest X3 sports utility vehicle.

Its Chief Executive Harald Krueger said the carmaker would invest additional $600 million in Spartanburg over the next four years, adding 1,000 jobs to the 9,000-strong workforce, and spend further $200 million on employee training and education.

But the poster child of South Carolina's success also doubles as a whipping boy. In January, BMW's plans to build a plant in Mexico drew Trump's ire and last month the U.S. president was quoted as saying Germany was "very bad" on trade and selling too many cars in the United States.

And even as the company highlights its contribution to the U.S. economy and the benefits of free trade, it is hedging its bets by preparing for a possible protectionist backlash.

Outside of the spotlight, BMW is retooling factories in South Africa and China to build volume models like the X3 SUV, reducing its dependence on Spartanburg.

“We have a big footprint here, and we are flexible enough," Oliver Zipse, BMW's board member responsible for manufacturing, told Reuters. "We will build the X3 not only in Spartanburg, we will split it into South Africa and then to China, so we will have some flexibility to produce cars somewhere else,” he said.

“If something happens at the political level - which we don’t know yet - we are able to have a flexible response.”

The Trump administration has said it welcomes foreign investment and Secretary of Commerce Wilbur Ross, who spoke at an opening of a new Samsung Electronics <005930.KS> plant in South Carolina, said such projects showed that "America is becoming an even stronger destination for global businesses looking to grow.”

The southern U.S. states owe much of their success to coastal port authorities and cities that have invested heavily to make their channels and docks fit for shipments to and from China and Mexico.

Senator Lindsey Graham, a Republican from South Carolina who has often clashed with Trump, said protectionism would undermine those accomplishments and hurt American workers.

DOOMSDAY SCENARIO

"Negotiate a trade agreement with Europe, modernize NAFTA, don't tear it up," Graham told Reuters at the BMW factory. "We're going in the wrong direction. We need more trade agreements, not less."

Graham noted how low-cost competition from China and Mexico destroyed South Carolina's once thriving textile industry and how the state reinvented itself as a manufacturing hub, bringing the likes of BMW or French tire maker Michelin .

The now humming port city of Charleston has a similar story to tell. When a major navy base shut down in the 1990s wiping out 20,000 jobs, local officials worked to bring foreign manufacturers, which now employ around 10,000 in the three counties around the city and more is set to come.

Mercedes-Benz, part of Daimler AG , is adding 1,300 jobs so it can make its Sprinter van here rather than merely assemble it with imported parts, which also means more business for local suppliers.

Up the road, Volvo Car Group, part of Chinese conglomerate Geely, is due to open its first North American plant next year with a target workforce of 2,000.

Local development officials expect more jobs and investment to come, but worry that some steps discussed by the Trump administration could have a chilling effect.

Claire Gibbons, director of global marketing at the Charleston Regional Development Alliance, said the proposed new tariffs, tougher immigration rules and stricter reviews of foreign investment projects would amount to a "doomsday scenario" for the region.

"This is an education opportunity for us all, for the people making the decisions that don't understand the ramifications."

          Commentaires sur Le RDV Tech 215 – Amazole Foods par ToToR65   
Bonjour @notpatrick. Comme @yohannt l'avait fait habilement remarquer tu as parler des nouveaux format AZERTY et PEBO dans le dernier RDVTech. Donc je me suis empressé d'aller l'écouter et je n'ai pas été déçu ;) Mon sentiment là dessus est mitigé. D'abord la joie et la fierté d'avoir été cité au RDVTech, ça n'a pas de prix. Dans n'importe quelle circonstance (même si là j'ai l'impression de passer pour un emmerdeur :D ). Le second sentiment, je ne saurai pas le définir pour l'instant. Donc je vais écrire ce qui m'a fait tiquer et peut-être la définition du sentiment ira de soi. Tu as utilisé pendant ces toutes petites 10 minutes sur le sujet un mot, à 4 reprises il me semble. Programmeur. Et du coup je l'ai pris en plein coeur. Et j'ai repensé à notre discussion sur Twitter, à propos de @ et de |. J'ai l'impression que nous défendions chacun notre point de vue, et c'est bien normal, mais du coup je comprends maintenant que tu partais du postulat que je défendais la profession des programmeurs. J'ai même l'impression que de ton point de vue tous les informaticiens sont des programmeurs. Et ça, ça fait mal. Voilà le sentiment, la douleur, de ne pas être considéré. Tout d'abord, je pense que ce terme sort des entrailles des années 90, puisque j'ai l'impression que de nos jours on parle plus de développeurs (mais après je connais mal ce milieu j'avoue). Et ensuite, non nous ne sommes pas tous des programmeurs. J'irai même plus loin. A titre personnel, j'ai appris quelque langage de programmation à l'école et la conclusion que j'en tire c'est que je déteste programmer/développer. Mais il en faut et j'admire leur travail (qui est bien plus dur que le mien je pense). Ne t'inquiète pas, tu n'es pas le seul à faire l'amalgame informaticien et programmeur, j'aimerai donc te sensibiliser à cet aspect. La branche de l'informatique à laquelle j'appartiens (enfin dont j'en ai fait le métier), c'est l'administration (non pas la maison qui rend fou de Astérix, l'admin informatique). Je dis bien admin informatique car il y a énormement de sous-branches de ce merveilleux métier. Pour être plus précis, je suis administrateur système. Quel est mon rôle ? Administrer un système d'exploitation et voici une liste non exhaustive des tâches que j'effectue : - installer/désinstaller des programmes - tenir à jour les programmes - tenir à jour le système d'exploitation - maintenir la sécurité du système d'exploitation Et plein d'autres tâches qui sont inhérentes au fait que je ne gère pas une seule machine mais quelques milliers. Par contre, quand on regarde d'un peu plus près ces quelques tâches que j'effectue au quotidien, on peut se rendre compte d'un chose... Nous sommes TOUS des administrateurs système. Quelque soit le système, on installe tous des applications, ainsi que les autres tâches plus accessoires (oui la sécurité, par les temps qui courrent, osef ;) ). Par conséquent, quand je défends le |, je ne le défends pas en tant que programmeur (ce que je ne suis pas) mais en tant qu'admin, le | est un outil de tous les systèmes d'exploitation (oui tous). Exemple : Sous Windows, allez dans le menu démarrer, taper cmd dans la recherche (ou dans Cortana), lancer l'invite de commande et taper ça : net statistics server | find "since" ou (si vous avez Windows en français) net statistics server | find "depuis" (cf https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/555737/how-to-find-windows-uptime) Et vous aurez l'uptime de votre système. Donc je ne dis pas que tout le monde utilise le |, mais tout le monde pourrait l'utiliser car c'est une commande de n'importe quel outil informatique sur lequel vous pourriez travailler. Et je ne parle pas des milliers de techniciens qui pourraient venir dépanner votre PC qui l'utilise au quotidien. C'est pour cela qu'il doit reste sur les claviers (pas forcément accessible, mais il est utile parce qu'il est lié au fonctionnement de votre outil informatique). J'espère qu'à l'avenir vous saurez faire la différence entre les développeurs (ces artistes créateurs) et les administrateurs (ces artisan de l'ombre, que nous sommes tous au final). Merci de votre attention et bonne journée. Peace.

          ARX and other thoughts   
To me the biggest problem with RISC OS as a modern platform is its fragility. The lack of pre-emptive multi-tasking and decent memory protection are big problems. These problems IMHO limit its usefulness as an embedded or PDA OS. Indeed IMHO RISC OS is probably a worse starting point for a PDA OS than Linux. The GUI is not at all suited to pen-based working, so it would need to be replaced. (PDA pens don't have buttons, so what do you do for menus?) What that leaves you with that is of use is the kernel, Filer, Font Manager, and Draw Module. Whilst the Font Manager used to kick arse, it's now looking quite dated, and the Draw Module was always lacking. What's sad is that Acorn were developing another OS for the Archimedes. It was called ARX, and was being developed at the Acorn Palo Alto Research Centre. It was to be a modern OS, with memory protection and pre-emptive multi-tasking like Unix, with a GUI similar to Mac OS - the guys working on it were experts in OS design. Unfortunately the project was poorly managed (as most Acorn projects were). Management decided to kill the project because the predicted finish date was long after the launch date for the Archimedes - Arthur was thrown together in a hurry, and the rest is history. For those that don't know, Arthur was essentially developed by a bunch of BBC Micro games developers who had little experience in OS design. I believe that none of the folks that had been working on ARX worked on Arthur. It was designed to be compatible (to an extent) with the earlier BBC Micro OS - much of the early software on Archimedes machines was ports of BBC Micro apps. It was never really designed to be a serious OS. IMHO what Acorn should have done was get in some decent management for the ARX project. Had they done that they'd have ended up with a serious computer system and things may have turned out differently. They could potentially have competed in the spaces that Unix and Mac OS were dominating. Unfortunately Arthur meant they were only suited to the education and hobbyist market.
          What It Would Take for Me to Consider RISC Again?   
A stylish time machine that sends me back to 1985 at 88 MPH.
          RE[2]: Is it just me...   
1) Depends what you mean by 'speed'. The current machines are 'responsive' in ways that more modern machines are not. For example, as nothing ever gets swapped out to disk, there are typically no pauses when the user makes a menu selection. There is no disk thrashing under normal application use as everything always in RAM. In terms of raw multi-media crunching bandwidth, I agree, the ARMs just aren't comparable with a top of the line desktop Intel chip. Having said that, for something like 'movie playback' hardware MPEG could perhaps do a better job anyway. 2) That neededn't be the case, if the OS were more open. As I said in the article, consumer grade ARM powered hardware is everywhere. 3) RISCOS itself is fast. Perhaps JIT emulated ARM code could be viewed as a sort of 'byte code' in which the OS is written. Speed critical parts always be written in native code. With the commercial JIT powered RO emulator (that I admit that I have never even seen running), I bet some UI operations are faster than the same operations on the underlying Windows PC. 4) Probably.

Early in the morning of the 26th April 1940, four members of KG 4 took off in their Heinkel He111 P-2 5J+CN from Fernebu, Oslo in Norway. One of three Heinkels tasked with attacking the town of Andalsnes, the bomber was damaged by the guns of HMS Manchester. Unable to keep formation with the other Heinkels the crew were then taken by surprise by two Blackburn Skuas of No. 801 Squadron FAA from HMS Ark Royal. The pilot of Skua A7-A unleashed a hail of machine gun fire on the bomber - killing flight engineer Willi Stock. With one engine failing and the other on fire, pilot Richard Gumbrecht had no choice but to force-land somewhere among the snow covered mountains below. With Stock dead, the remaining three crew members escaped the wreckage and made their way down the mountain. The largely intact Heinkel sat on the mountain for over 30 years, before being recovered and restored by the Norwegian Armed Forces Aircraft Collection.

          The Ultimate Hard Body Exercise   

The Front Squat:

As you may have already discovered, the squat is at the top of the heap (along with deadlifts) as one of the most effective overall exercises for stimulating body composition changes (muscle gain and fat loss). This is because exercises like squats and deadlifts use more muscle groups under a heavy load than almost any other weight bearing exercises known to man. Hence, these exercises stimulate the greatest hormonal responses (growth hormone, testosterone, etc.) of all exercises. In fact, university research studies have even proven that inclusion of squats into a training program increases upper body development, in addition to lower body development, even though upper body specific joint movements are not performed during the squat. Whether your goal is gaining muscle mass, losing body fat, building a strong and functional body, or improving athletic performance, the basic squat and deadlift (and their variations) are the ultimate solution. If you don't believe me that squats and deadlifts are THE basis for a lean and powerful body, then go ahead and join all of the other overweight people pumping away mindlessly for hours on boring cardio equipment. You won't find long boring cardio in any of my programs!

Squats can be done with any free weighted objects such as barbells, dumbbells, kettlebells, sandbags, or even just body weight. Squats should only be done with free weights - NEVER with a Smith machine or any other squat machines! Machines do not allow your body to follow natural, biomechanically-correct movement paths. You also perform less work because the machine stabilizes the weight for you. Therefore, you get weaker results!

The type of squat that people are most familiar with is the barbell back squat where the bar is resting on the trapezius muscles of the upper back. Many professional strength coaches believe that front squats (where the bar rests on the shoulders in front of the head) and overhead squats (where the bar is locked out in a snatch grip overhead throughout the squat) are more functional to athletic performance than back squats with less risk of lower back injury. I feel that a combination of all three (not necessarily during the same phase of your workouts) will yield the best results for overall muscular development, body fat loss, and athletic performance. Front squats are moderately more difficult than back squats, while overhead squats are considerably more difficult than either back squats or front squats. I'll cover overhead squats in a future article. If you are only accustomed to performing back squats, it will take you a few sessions to become comfortable with front squats, so start out light. After a couple sessions of practice, you will start to feel the groove and be able to increase the poundage.

To perform front squats:

The front squat recruits the abdominals to a much higher degree for stability due to the more upright position compared with back squats. It is mostly a lower body exercise, but is great for functionally incorporating core strength and stability into the squatting movement. It can also be slightly difficult to learn how to properly rest the bar on your shoulders. There are two ways to rest the bar on the front of the shoulders. In the first method, you step under the bar and cross your forearms into an "X" position while resting the bar on the dimple that is created by the shoulder muscle near the bone, keeping your elbows up high so that your upper arms are parallel to the ground. You then hold the bar in place by pressing the thumb side of your fists against the bar for support. Alternatively, you can hold the bar by placing your palms face up and the bar resting on your fingers against your shoulders. For both methods, your elbows must stay up high to prevent the weight from falling. Your upper arms should stay parallel to the ground throughout the squat. Find out which bar support method is more comfortable for you. Then, initiate the squat from your hips by sitting back and down, keeping the weight on your heels as opposed to the balls of your feet. Squat down to a position where your thighs are approximately parallel to the ground, then press back up to the starting position. Keeping your weight more towards your heels is the key factor in squatting to protect your knees from injury and develop strong injury-resistant knee joints. Keep in mind - squats done correctly actually strengthen the knees; squats done incorrectly can damage the knees.

          How to Increase Your Bench Press by Doing Squats   

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Do you qualify as one of those people?

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

You just boosted your testosterone production 1000%.

Do you think I'm being facetious?

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Focus on Both Consistency and Variability in Your Workouts for the Best Results   

In one of my recent articles, I spoke about the fact that you must alter your training variables that make up your workouts if you want to continuously get good results, whether it is losing weight, building muscle, or toning up.

While changing your training variables is an integral part of the success of your training program, your workouts shouldn't be drastically different every single time. If you are all over the place on each workout and never try to repeat and improve on specific exercises for specific set and rep schemes with specific rest intervals, then your body has no basis to improve on its current condition. The best way to structure your workouts to get the best results is to be consistent and try to continually improve on a specific training method for a specific time period. A time period of 4-8 weeks usually works best as your body will adapt to the specific training method and progress will slow after this amount of time.

At this point, it is time to change around some of your training variables as I described in the "exercise variables" article, and then stay consistent with your new training program for another 4-8 weeks. To refresh, some of these variables are the numbers of sets and reps of exercises, the order of exercises (sequence), exercise grouping (super-setting, circuit training, tri-sets, etc.), exercise type (multi-joint or single joint, free-weight or machine based), the number of exercises per workout, the amount of resistance, the time under tension, the base of stability (standing, seated, on stability ball, one-legged, etc.), the volume of work (sets x reps x distance moved), rest periods between sets, repetition speed, range of motion, exercise angle (inclined, flat, declined, bent over, upright, etc), training duration per workout, training frequency per week, etc.

For example, let's say you are training with a program where you are doing 10 sets of 3 reps for 6 different exercises grouped together in pairs (done as supersets) with 30 seconds rest between each superset and no rest between the 2 exercises within the superset. If you are smart, I'm sure you are tracking your progress with a notepad (weights used, sets, and reps) to see how you are progressing over time. Let's say that after about 6 weeks, you find that you are no longer improving with that program. Well, now it is time to change up your variables, and start a new program.

This time you choose a classic 5 sets of 5 reps routine, but you group your exercises in tri-sets (three exercises performed back to back to back, and then repeated for the number of sets). This time you decide to perform the exercises in the tri-set with no rest between them, and then recover for 2 minutes in between each tri-set to fully recoup your strength levels.

There you have it...a couple examples of how to incorporate both consistency and variability into your training programs to maximize your results. Want to take the guess work out of all of this?

          The Importance of Maintaining A Weight Training Log   

Do you find gyms intimidating? Feel lost while doing your workouts? Tried different programs with no results? Not always sure of want exercises you are supposed to be doing? Or maybe you're burnt out on the exercises your doing. A weight-training log may be exactly what you need.

Walking into a gym full of big bodybuilders or women built like models can be very intimidating. Having all these beautiful people working out around you can make you wonder if you'll ever be able to look like that. Well let me tell you a little secret they didn't always look that good and with a focused plan you too can look that way. Its simple, write down the exercises that you usually do with the amount of weight used and number of sets performed for a period of three weeks. Use a weight-training log. For example if you are doing a three day split that is you divide the body into three parts and train them over three days, write down three workouts for each group. Don't worry if this takes more or less than three weeks just as long as you record three workouts for each grouping. Now review your workouts after that period and analyze your findings. Were you workouts remarkably similar? Did you use the same amount of weight for the same number of sets? Was your cardiovascular training always for the same amount of time, done the same way? To quote a famous bodybuilder and actor," If you do what you've always done you'll get what you've always got", I'll let you try and figure out who said that. So the next time you have to train, try to improve in small steps maybe a little more weight on the bench press, say 5 lbs. Maybe try a different type of cardio or run on the treadmill for a little longer, say 3 minutes. These small steps will ultimately help you achieve your fitness goals faster than plugging away day after day never improving. Don't get discouraged if you can't improve every time. Remember, little steps.

One of my favorite methods for my training log takes a little longer to run its course but ultimately leads to excellent improvement. Try a heavier weight but for fewer repetitions, for example if I pressed 60 pounds for 12 last week, the following week I would do 65 for 10. Continuing with this pattern I would work down to 6 reps for 75 pounds. All this is recorded in my weight-training log. Now start at the beginning again but this time try 65 pounds for 12 reps; if you can do more than one set go ahead, but try a least one set.

Ultimately the idea behind a weight-training log is to be able to monitor your progress from workout to workout, improving a little with each session. Psychology has proven that positive reinforcement helps to improve your work ethic. One of the best things that arise from keeping a weight-training log is the ability to chart your progress. Even sea captains use maps and you wouldn't drive somewhere you haven't been without a map. So by keeping a weight-training log you should be able to see your progress. Watching your self improve in the mirror is often too slow; having it in front of you in black and white is undeniable proof of your progress, boosting your confidence and self-esteem.

Not every workout is going to be exciting. Life's not always a party and getting back into shape can be drudgery. Sometimes the days seem to run into each other and working out is the last thing you want to do. By maintaining a weight-training log of all your workouts it's easy to see if you are doing the same exercises time after time. If your workouts have become stale quickly review your weight-training log and see if there are patterns. If the same movements pop up week after week try changing things up. Ask your trainer about different training modalities or methods and you interest should perk back up. "I remember what I did last week", you say. Well sometimes the mind will play tricks and you'll forget what you did not than long ago. Countless times I've looked in my weight training log and said" I did that much last time?" Or "Wow, I haven't done this exercise in months". As a bonus to doing this your body has to keep adapting to new stresses which will help achieve those fitness goals faster, but that's a different column altogether.

Working part time at a gym I get exposed to a lot of people's habits as far as training and fitness. Some good and some bad, however the habit I like to see the most of is asking questions. Just the other day, I was approached twice by the same person with questions pertaining to properly performing the exercises on their program sheet. That's what the staff at the gym is there for so don't ever be afraid to ask. But if you have a plan a lot of the guess work is taken out of your workouts. Make little notes to yourself in your weight training log if need to remind yourself of how to do a particular exercise or what machine to use. Even write down how you felt on that day and why, lack of sleep, didn't eat well etc. Perhaps you have an injury, be sure to write this down as it will surely affect all or part of your routine. Knowing this will be useful later when you wonder why that workout was so much lighter than the previous ones. Write down when you felt strong and why this was. With this information it should be easier to duplicate the good days and avoid the bad.

Hopefully you'll be able to use all or part of this article to help achieve your fitness goals. Never stop trying to improve no matter discouraged you get. Remember little steps in your weight training log and you too can look your best. It's all just a matter of time and effort.

          Machines VS. Free Weights II   

Machines are bad, there I said it again. How many of us join health clubs or purchase expensive home exercise equipment under the notion that the machine will protect our back, make the exercise easier or guarantee your results quicker. In sports and life for that matter if you are sitting on your butt or laying flat on your back you lost! , so why do we insist on exercising that way. We spend way too much of our existence sedentary, sitting, driving, typing, talking etc..

Has anyone noticed that the commonality of back problems from doing nothing (a traumatic), joint replacements and other injuries of non-traumatic origins continue to escalate?. Did anyone ever put two and two together and realize that maybe the way we have and are exercising is precipitating the problem. My last article went into some specifics on the traumatic forces that the joints experience using common machines. Research continues to emerge validating that most machines place the body and joints in such horrible positions that injury is inevitable.

So what is a health conscious exerciser to do, well, life moves so we better learn to exercise that way. Try performing your current exercise routine standing. That's right, chest presses, shoulder presses, arm exercises, rows all performed standing. This will enable you to engage all of your 'core' muscles, work on balance and lower extremity joint stability.

When was the last time you performed a standing squat, on one leg, on a ball or foam disk? What if you tried training the whole workout using an adjustable cable machine, standing?. Wait, I said machine, yes some machines or good. There are a few pieces out there that I like. If it has an adjustable cable or articulating arms, that we like. Why, simple it forces you to stand and that engages almost all of the core muscles, and as I've stated if you are standing you are using many more muscles than if your were sitting down. Machines that do not force you to remain in a set joint position and allow you to move as biomechanics dictate will by default give you a better and safer workout.

Lunges are one of the best exercises to do, anyone can argue for or against this, but combined with proper hip and leg stability / flexibility they are among the best. Try combining with shoulder presses, abduction, scaptions. You can also combine with bicep curls, torso rotations, stabilization movements, as you can tell the combinations are almost endless.

Dumbbells, almost beyond the scope of this article the amount of exercises you can perform. A ball, BOSU tm, floor and an adjustable bench is all you need.

Bands, yes almost as good as cables, they travel better and the exercises are almost endless. One word on bands, they are easier in the beginning and harder at the end of the movement. This changes the firing of the muscle slightly but they are still an excellent adjunct for fitness, and yes they force you to stand while using them.

What about the floor, generally there is very little floor space in a gym, got to fill it with machines. For the last few years the popularity of Pilates, Yoga, Tai Chi and other movement techniques have become popular. Thanks to the baby boomers looking for alternatives for fitness these regimens have become mainstream. They all require a balance of breathing, flexibility, strength, postural awareness and muscular endurance. The message with these techniques is performed by themselves they are good, add strength training and aerobic conditioning and the package is complete.

Does this mean never train on a machine, absolutely not, many still provide a good isolation workout and for some with medical conditions machines allow a degree of safety. My point is that so many of us have spent so much time training wrong and placing our bodies in bad positions that we need to spend much of our time correcting the imbalances and injury that are already there. I tell a lot of my clients that people do not feel there arteries clogging but they sure know when the crushing chest pain starts. We spend much of our lives denying that injuries, both musculoskeletal and internal, will never happen to us, yet we consistently do things to encourage that damage to occur. Let's change how we think and exercise or you may end up laying flat on you back.

          China open to free-trade agreement with Mexico – Xinhua news agency   

China’s Ambassador to Mexico, Qiu Xiaoqi. Photo: Reuters

China is open to negotiating a free-trade agreement with Mexico, the official Xinhua news agency reported yesterday, citing the Chinese ambassador to the country, a fillip for Mexico as it faces uncertainty over its trade deals with the US. Qiu Xiaoqi, China’s ambassador to Mexico, said China was willing to discuss a free-trade agreement, although no discussions had been held so far, Xinhua said. Qiu was speaking at an academic event in Mexico City. “If we negotiate a free-trade agreement, this will greatly favour trade exchanges between our two countries. There is no difficulty from China’s side,” he said. “Mexico is China’s second-largest trading partner in Latin America and China is Mexico’s second-largest trading partner in the world. This is a highly important relationship and we have great interest in deepening and broadening these ties.” Mexico is keen to cut its economic reliance on the US out of concern that access to its top trade partner may be restricted by the policies of US President Donald Trump, who has pledged to protect US jobs from going outside the country. China and Mexico have been strengthening ties since late last year as the US has stepped back from...

          Keeping an eye on Alibaba Cloud, Aliyun – Part 1   
Alibaba's Jack Ma made headlines across the world last week by laying out a plan for rapid global expansion of China's e-commerce behemoth. In an Investor Conference held at the company's Xixi headquarters in Hangzhou, China, Ma made the bold claim that Alibaba could reach $1 trillion in gross merchandise value by 2021 by becoming the primary online store for 2 billion people, as well as by expanding into new areas, one of which is the international public cloud services business. While Alibaba's investor event was overshadowed somewhat by the news that Amazon will spend $13.7 billion in cash to acquire Whole Foods, the premium U.S. grocery store chain, Jack Ma unveiled a strategy with clear potential to disrupt the cloud market.

Meanwhile, business at Alibaba Group (NYSE: BABA) is 'fantastic' and is only going to get better this year, according to the company CFO. For the most recent fiscal quarter ended March 31, 2017, the company reported revenue of RMB 38,579 million ($5,605 million), an increase of 60% year-over-year, including:

•   Revenue from core commerce of RMB31,570 million ($4,587 million), up 47% year-over-year.

•   Revenue from cloud computing of RMB 2,163 million ($314 million), up 103% year-over-year.

•   Revenue from digital media and entertainment of RMB 3,927 million ($571 million), up 234% year-over-year.

Growth at the parent company is primarily being driven by the steady increase in active buyers on its ecommerce platforms, both in numbers and in the value of goods and services being transacted. Annual active buyers reached 454 million, an increase of 31 million from the 12-month period ended on March 31, 2016. Mobile monthly active users (MAUs) on Alibaba Group’s China retail marketplaces reached 507 million in March, up 97 million over March 2016. Gross merchandise volume (GMV) transacted on Alibaba’s China retail marketplaces in fiscal year 2017 was RMB 3,767 billion ($547 billion), up 22% compared to RMB 3,092 billion in fiscal year 2016.

Alibaba Cloud, or Aliyun as it is known in Chinese, is firmly established as the leading infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) cloud in mainland China and is moving rapidly to become a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) provider and a Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) retailer. Some important Aliyun metrics emerged from the Investor presentation, including (with additional commentary):

·         Public cloud is growing: based on Gartner's figures from March 2017, Aliyun estimates the global public cloud market will amount to $245 billion in 2017, growing to $436 billion in 2021, a 15.9% CAGR.

·         China’s public cloud market is growing even faster, with Gartner figures showing China’s public cloud market, valued at $14 billion this year, growing to $25 billion in 2021, a 17.2% CAGR; by 2021, China’s share of the global public cloud market would still be under 6%, which seems odd given the country's share of global GDP is much higher and that ecommerce, social media and mobile technologies are booming in China - why so low versus the U.S. market?

·         Aliyun cited figures from IDC Tracker 2016 H1/H2 Global Cloud Market (IaaS), indicating it currently is the No.4 player in public cloud services worldwide, but with only a 3.2% share; No.1 was AWS, $8.4 billion, 46.1% share; No. 2 Microsoft, $1.4 billion, 7.6% share; No.3 IBM, $1.0 billion, 5.8% share; No.4 Alibaba, $0.57 billion, 3.2% share; No.5 Google, $0.519 billion, 2.9% share.

Clearly, AWS is dominating the public cloud market, especially in the U.S. The other U.S. public cloud players are investing aggressively to catch up and they too seem to have ambitions that reach to the sky. Alibaba's Jack Ma has previously been quoted in the press as saying that Alibaba would catch and surpass Amazon. When it comes to cloud services at least, this will be extremely difficult given its current 3.2% share versus AWS’ 46.1% share, and a capex budget that appears decisively smaller.

In its home market of China, Aliyun's IaaS revenue is equivalent to the next seven players combined. The numbers cited in IDC Tracker 2016 H1/H2 Global Cloud Market are as follows:

·         No.1 – Alibaba Group, $587 million, 40.7% market share

·         No.2 - China Telecom, $123 million, 8.5%

·         No.3 – Tencent, $106 million, 7.3%

·         No.4 – Kingsoft, $87 million, 6.0%

·         No.5 – Ucloud, $79 million, 5.5%

·         No.6 – Microsoft, $72 million, 5.0%

·         No.7 – China Unicom, $67 million, 4.6%

·         No.8 – AWS, $55 million, 3.8%

In addition, as of March 31, 2017 Aliyun had 874,000 paying customers, had 15 data centres worldwide and had 186 cloud service offers. It also claims a 96.7% retention rate amongst its top paying customers in Q1 2017 compared to a year earlier.

Over one-third of China’s Top 500 companies are on Alibaba Cloud, including China's Public Safety Bureau (PSB), CCTV, Sinopec, Sina Weibo, Xinhua News Agency,Toutiao, Geely, Mango TV, CEA, Quanmin Live, Panda TV and DJI, while two-thirds of Chinese Unicorn companies are on Alibaba Cloud. Global Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) now available on Aliyun include Accenture, SAP, Docker, here, SUSE, Haivision, Wowza, AppScale, AppEX, Hillstone, Checkpoint Software Technologies, Hitachi Data Systems and Red Hat.


Aliyun’s Computing Conference 2016 was attended by over 40,000 developers in person, with more than 7 million viewers online. At its investor conference, Aliyun also disclosed a number of major international brands that are now using its services, including Schneider Electric, Shisheido, Philips, Nestle and Vodafone, which is a good start. Nevertheless, attracting international companies will be harder, first, because Alibaba has only just recently begun building data centres outside of China, and two, they will be much less known and trusted than established brands such as IBM.

          Alborosie – Freedom In Dub   
Image: 1610208 Mit einer fulminanten Dub-Version zum gefeierten Album von 2016 meldet sich Alberto D'Ascola aka Alborosie zurück. "Freedom In Dub" ist nach dem Kollabo-Album mit King Jammy "Dub Of Thrones" von 2015, "Dub The System" von 2013 und "Dub Clash" von 2010 bereits der vierter Longplayer bei dem das Multiitalent seiner Leidenschaft frönt und nachhaltig seine ausgewöhnlichen Fähigkeiten demonstriert, dass er eben nicht nur die Fähigkeit besitzt als Sänger & Deejay ein Top-Act zu sein und als Produzent und Toningenieur für erfolgreiche Musik und fetten Sound verantworlich zu sein, sondern als ein weiteres Alleinstellungsmerkmal viele der Instrumente selbst einspielt. Die zehn Dubs von "Freedom In Dub" wurden in Alborosies eigenem Studio, den Shengen Studios in Kingston Jamaika eingespielt. Dabei kamen diverse Schätze an Equipment und Instrumenten zum Einsatz, u.a. King Tubbys Bandmaschine, Gitarrenverstärker aus dem Studio One, das legendäre Vistalite Ludwig Schlagzeug oder das Mischpult das zuletzt im Tuff Gong Studio genutzt wurde, um nur einige Soundingredienzien zu nennen. Aus zehn der Top-Songs des Originalalbum, u.a. "Can't Cool", "Fly 420", "Rocky Road", "Poser", "Carry On", werden "Dub Can't Cool", "Dub 420", "Rocky Dub Road", "Dub Posers" "Carry On Dub" - aus "Strolling", der Komibination mit Gaststar Protoje und aktuelle Single / Video, wird "Strolling Into Dub" usw. Mit diesem Longplayer hat sich der 40-jährige Alborosie in dem Kreis der ganz großen Namen des Dub-Universum etabliert. Der "Freedom In Dub" Longplayer erscheint als CD-Digipak und als LP-Vinyl.

          Indian-Americans and Spelling Bees: Adding some nuance   
It's that time of the year again. The only night of the year when desi people dominate ESPN primetime in the United States. The Scripps National Spelling Bee. Yet again, the winner...or rather co-winners..came from the families of Indian immigrants.

This has been happening for over a decade now, and every year, the aftermath of the Bee in Indian media and Indian and Indian-origin social media follows a similar pattern. There are a few think pieces about why Indian-Americans are so good at spelling bees. Some folks go all uber-patriotic extolling the superior virtues of our intellectual tradition and what not (cue...Bhaaaaarrrraat maaata kiiii.......). And some folks sneer, indulging in a mild form of communal self-loathing. I don't have kids but my close Indian-American friends who do are very emphatic about how they will not make...or even let their kids participate in something as nerdy and inherently uncool as a spelling bee.

Through Twitter I came across this post that quotes Varun Grover's interview in the excellent excellent documentary I Am Offended (do watch if you haven't) which references spelling bees. That blog, and Varun in that documentary, are making a larger point about how the Indian education system is centered around rote learning, stifling creativity and basically preparing "middle managers". And that the success in spelling bees is a symptom of that.

While I agree with Varun and Auctorly on the larger problem, I don't think it is correct to link spelling bees to that problem. I see where they are coming from, and the reason for that is a couple of myths about spelling bees in general which merit some attention.

Myth #1 Spelling Bees are all about memorizing thousands and thousands and thousands of words, and regurgitating them on stage.

I used to think the same way, but it's not really that way. A few years ago, I had a long chat with a student of mine (I am a college professor) who in her school days had participated in the spelling bee. She didn't win, but talked to me about how much fun it was, and ended up giving me a different perspective on this activity that I too once sneered at. Then I read some more about it, watched the documentary Spellbound, talked to some more students over the years, and I think it is necessary to add some nuance to how we view the "sport".

Spelling bee as a contest is more about pattern recognition than just rote memorization. Don't get me wrong. Of course it is important to know and remember many many words to participate in a spelling bee. But the same is true of scrabble. Or crosswords. Or trivia quizzing. Heck, memorization is key even in chess. A serious chess player will have thousands of moves and games memorized.

Just like all those activities/sports, spelling bee is about, yes, having a memory bank of relevant information, but at the top level, it is often about recognizing patterns, working out clues, and then formulating an answer by accessing the relevant information from your brain.

You know how the kids ask for meaning, language of origin, use it in a sentence etc etc? It is not for theater. It has important information, and many times, can even help you make an educated guess at the spelling of a word you've never heard of by using what is basically pattern recognition.

Let me give you an example about how I, without memorizing any words, was able to correctly guess one of the words in the final this year. The word was chremslach. When it was first uttered, I thought it would start with "Kr" and maybe end with "che" or "kh". Then I heard that the word was Yiddish. And the meaning was a kind of passover pastry. Instantly I thought of a pastry that a Jewish deli near my house excels at - rugelach. The end sounded the same. So it had to end in -lach. And the different pronunciations of the starting syllable suggested chr not Kr. The repeated usage by the moderator further confirmed what I had in my mind. A pattern emerged and voila. There the spelling was.

I felt thrilled at having worked it out before the contestant answered. It was a thrill similar to the one I get as a trivia quizzer when I crack a cleverly framed Final Jeopardy style "workout-able" question. Or the thrill I get when I crack a particularly cryptic clue in crosswords.

The aforementioned student kept stressing about how much fun the whole thing was for her. She said it was a form of solving puzzles. And I saw what she meant. I asked her, isn't it boring to memorize thousands and thousands of words. She said no, she LOVES words (sidenote - she always wrote the most well-crafted and thoughtful term papers in my class). And again, I see her point.

When you enjoy any activity built on pattern recognition so much that you want to seriously compete in it, you don't think of the underlying memorization as a drab chore. I like to play scrabble semi-competitively, and it is fun for me to have those cruel 2 letter words memorized so I can gain advantage on the board despite not having great tiles. And I'm sure poker players don't think of probability calculations as mundane.

Myth #2 These desi spelling be winners will most likely end up as middle managers, code coolies, cogs in the corporate machine....just total drones.

Although it seems like Indian-Americans have been winning the bee for ages, in reality, it's been less than two decades that it has been happening consistently. So the sample of winners is not statistically significant, but from whatever I read in "where are they now" type stories, I saw very few, if any, ending up in those drone type jobs.

A lot of them were in some form of research, which to me, as an academic researcher, makes sense. Research is like the rigorous grown-up impactful form of pattern recognition that is built upon a deep memory bank of knowledge about a subject. A bunch of them were doctors and lawyers. One was a professional poker player (again, pattern recognition and memory). And so on. I even googled a few names of winners and always found that the person was doing something really cool.

Maybe a systematic study will throw up more details.

Myth #3 We Indians are just awesome at English and we are such brainiacs and we have the bestest education-centric culture so we are awesome at Spelling Bees

While the first two myths were in the self-loathing category, this one is in the uber-patriotic category. I have no problem with Indians or Indian-origin feeling proud or elated or whatever at this dominance, although I am personally from the Bill Hicks school of thought when it comes to patriotism.

But let us dispel with this notion that there is something really inherently culturally genetically special about Indians that our kids just go to America, show up at spelling bees, and start winning them left and right. There is actually a pretty strong and well-organized training infrastructure that is making all this possible. Remember that these contestants train with the rigor and discipline of athletes. It is not done in isolation, but requires broader support like with any sport or activity.

What you see on ESPN is the culmination of a year of smaller contests, local spelling bees, practice bees, and other such events on the local circuits. And there's a kind of feedback loop that forms. Successive generations build on the success of previous generations. Legacies and even "dynasties" are created and inspire some to adhere to it. I could keep going, but I came across this article that explains the quasi-institutional reasons behind the dominance in more detail.

If some other community starts taking such a deep interest in the sport and organizes in such a serious grassroots way, other communities could start dominating too.

One thing to note is that the winners have all been kids of Indians who migrated to the United States. Recent Indian immigrants, much like recent immigrants of other communities, tend to socialize more with their compatriots and do so in a very community-based way, with associations and groups and mandals and so on. But second generation Indian-Americans are more assimilated in the American mainstream. So when they grow up and have kids of their own, they are not as plugged into the Indian-American groups and associations as their parents were.

So you don't see many (or even any?) third generation Indian-American children winning the spelling bee or even making it to the national finals, because they don't have automatic access to that community-based infrastructure.

The best way to end this post is to quote a now-grown-up Nupur Lala, the star of the Oscar winning documentary who arguably started this Indian-American phenomenon.

“Having watched Spellbound, I realized that several of my competitors weren’t any worse than me ability-wise, but they didn’t have the same advantages—economic privilege, educational background, family dynamics,” she says. “I know that played a big, big role in my success. As a 14-year-old, I really thought I was one of the best spellers out there. In hindsight, I think, yeah, I was a very good speller, but I also had some of the best preparation and resources out there. I had a mom who had a graduate degree in linguistics. Parents who have literally hundreds of books in the house, and who were very motivated to help me succeed.”

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Or so I thought.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"But does two hours really mean two hours?"

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

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

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

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

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

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

"So the flight might get cancelled?"

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

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

"Yeah, same difference."

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

"You both have life insurance, right?"

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

His colleague responded,

"Hoga koi Minister ka baccha nahi toh jamai!"

and walked away.

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"You can go."

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

"Ah! London!"

          The New York City SBS Receipt Social Contract   
Living in New York is a continuous assault on the senses - in a good way. You get to see, hear, and experience so many things unique to the city, that it becomes commonplace in a while. But every few days, I have a new experience that makes me love this city even more. This is one such experience.

This semester I have been teaching in the Bronx 3 days a week. The commute is long, and involves something I have never had to resort to in Manhattan - riding the bus! I take a subway train from Manhattan to the Fordham Rd station. And from there, take a bus to the Fordham campus, about a mile away.

This is an SBS (Select Bus Service) bus. Unlike normal buses, where you pay the fare when entering from the front door, the SBS buses require you to swipe your metrocard at the bus stop, take a receipt, and keep it in your pocket. The driver assumes that everyone has a receipt. Most of the times, no one checks if you actually have the receipt. But once in a while, when you get off the bus, an MTA employee is waiting to check your receipt. If you don't have it, you pay a fine. Doesn't happen too often (I've encountered receipt checkers only 3 times in the last 3 months), but acts as a deterrent against free riders.

Obviously, you need to get the receipt from the fare machine BEFORE the bus gets there. Which is what I usually do. I get off the subway, walk to the bus stop which is a block away, swipe my card, take the receipt, and wait for the bus. That receipt is free, because transfer from an MTA subway to an MTA bus is free. So I'm not paying the city of New York another $2.25, just getting a proof of the fact that I have a right to be on the bus.

A couple of days ago, I got off the subway, and saw that the bus was already at the stop. Instinctively, I ran. I wasn't in a hurry or anything. I could just as easily have taken the next bus and been well in time for my class. But the human urge to run after the earliest bus is as irresistible as the canine urge to chase cars. So I ran.

As I ran, I started wondering if I really could catch the bus. I would have to go to the fare machine, swipe my card and get the receipt (a process than takes 10-15 seconds), and then get on the bus. New York City bus drivers, quite understandably, don't hang around waiting for tardy passengers. Time, tide, and MTA buses wait for no one. It seemed like I would probably miss the bus. I still kept running.

As I approached the bus, before I could head to the fare machine, a man getting down from the rear door thrust his hand out in my direction. In New York, if a stranger makes a strange gesture, you ignore it. So I did. Another man did the same thing, trying to hand me something. I assumed he was handing out fliers like someone at every street block in the city seems to be doing, ignored him, and kept running. Although I was in no particular hurry, I kept hoping I could get to the fare machine, get the receipt, and hop aboard before the bus left.

When I was about to run past the middle door towards the fare machine, a big black guy about 2 metres tall and almost as wide stood halfway in my path. With a swift motion of his arm, he thrust something in my hand and grunted,

"The f**k's wrong withchoo man? Get on the damn bus!"

I stopped dead in my tracks. Not like I had a choice, given that he was blocking my way. I looked at my hand. It held an SBS receipt. I looked up and saw the big lug had already started lumbering away. He looked back at me and said,

"You gonna miss the bus."

With the receipt in my hand, I hopped aboard, and stood there, trying to figure out what the hell just happened. It took several seconds for me to grasp the concept. And I finally understood that the other guys thrusting their hands at me had been trying to do the same thing - hand me their receipts.

I had been the beneficiary of a benevolent social contract that seemed to have come about among those who travel on SBS buses. When you're getting off the bus, if you see someone running to catch it, you give them your receipt. The receipt is no good to you anyway after you've gotten off. The poor running sap will have to go to the fare machine, and will probably miss the bus. So an elegant solution to help others out - give them your receipt.

The simplicity and elegance of this implicit social contract almost made me go "AWWWWWWWW". There's no way to know how this norm started or when. But it's another example of how human beings thrown together in a tough situation develop mechanisms to help each other out. Often, when it's a tough situation brought on by "the man" or the government. It's a bit like how drivers on the interstate highways, when they see a cop hiding in the bushes to catch speeders, flash their lights to oncoming drivers to warn them.

The next time I get off the SBS and see someone sprinting towards the bus, I am going to hold out my receipt for them too. That really is the essence of "pay it forward".

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

Innovative program could bring Chinese students to Beaver Falls campus

          School rallies around family of missing Chinese student   

Twenty days after University of Illinois graduate student Yingying Zhang disappeared from the Urbana-Champaign campus, her family called on the community Thursday to hold on to hope for her safe return.

"She's always a brave girl and she never easily gives up on anything," Zhang's boyfriend, Xiaolin Hou, told a crowd of well-wishers gathered at the school Thursday night.

"She never gives up as long as there's a glimmer of hope ... so we cannot give up either," he said.

Hou and members of Zhang's family led a procession of hundreds of well-wishers through the streets of the Urbana-Champaign campus Thursday night. They waved flags with her name on them and carried her picture as they chanted "let's find Yingying."

The family flew from China to the United States earlier this month to search for the 26-year-old visiting scholar. And they say they're not going home without her.

Zhang's father issued a plea earlier Thursday to those responsible for his daughter's disappearance: Let her go and I'll forgive you.

"The family hopes the kidnappers would not hurt her and know she is really well loved by family and friends," her father told CNN through a translator Thursday. "Let her go, let her come back as soon as possible."

Last seen June 9

Zhang had a yearlong position at the university's department of Natural Resources and Environmental Sciences. She graduated from Beijing's prestigious Peking University in 2016 with a master's degree in environmental engineering.

Zhang is 5 feet, 4 inches tall and weighs 110 pounds, the FBI said. She was last seen wearing a charcoal-colored baseball cap, a pink and white top, jeans and white tennis shoes. She carried a black backpack.

The last known sighting of Zhang was on the afternoon of June 9. Security camera footage shows her entering the passenger side of a black Saturn Astra hatchback that day.

University police said Zhang had just gotten off a public bus before the four-door hatchback approached her on the north end of the university campus. The FBI announced that investigators found the car on Tuesday, but provided no further details.

The FBI is treating the disappearance as a kidnapping, but campus police, in a recently released update, say they are calling it a missing persons case.

Support from around the world

Zhang is one of more than 300,000 Chinese students and scholars attending US universities. The University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign is one of the most popular universities for Chinese students, with more than 5,600. They make up a sizable community both on campus and in the small town of 207,000.

Her disappearance has triggered widespread concern in China, with groups set up on messaging app WeChat to share information about the case.

A crowdfunding campaign set up to help Zhang's family with expenses as the search continues has raised more than three times its $30,000 goal, with many donors leaving messages of support in Chinese.

'Twenty days is a long time'

Her disappearance has struck a nerve on the Urbana-Champaign campus.

Supporters who joined Thursday's rally echoed her family's hopeful tone.

"I'm praying as I walk," said Champaign resident Donald Baker. "We're hoping we can bring her back home to her family and to this campus."

Another woman said she joined the rally to support Zhang's family. She has a daughter close to Zhang's age who travels internationally, and sometimes she doesn't hear from her for days, she said.

"It was important to me as Americans that we show love and care to this family," she said.

"I want to be optimistic that we will find her," she added. "Twenty days is a long time."

          Chinese mart owner killed after resisting bandits   

Tired of being robbed, proprietor Yana Zeng is believed to have struggled with two men who held up her mini-mart on Tuesday night. For her resistance she was fatally shot by one of the bandits.

According to police reports, around 9 pm two men entered the N&N Mini-mart located at Cantaro Village, Upper Santa Cruz and and demanded cash from Zeng, 33 and her husband. When she resisted she was shot in the side. The men then ran out mini mart and escaped through a track.

Zeng was taken to the Eric Williams Medical Sciences Complex, Mt Hope, by Constables Collins and Nurse but was pronounced dead on arrival around 9.30 pm.

Gathered near the scene of the robbery and shooting on Tuesday night, residents said the business had moved to its current location after being robbed several times before. They added that Zeng, commonly called “Anna,” was a neighbourhood favourite. The neighbours lamented the deterioration of the community, recalling several shootings in the area prior to Tuesday’s incident.

The killing brought back memories of the double murder of Chinese nationals Shirui Zhao and Yangli Gu as they returned home after closing up business at the E World Club and Liquor Bank on June 15 in Marabella.

Video footage showed Zhao and Gu pulling into the parking area in front of the Kosume Bar at the corner of New Haven Avenue and John Street in Zhao’s black Toyota Corolla Altis. They lived in an apartment upstairs the bar with other Chinese nationals. As Gu opened the right passenger door to exit the car, two gunmen came from the right and began firing at the car. Gu had turned 29 years old on that day.

That case remains unsolved.

          Voting Fights in the States   
AP Photo/Andrew Selsky

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

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

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

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

First, A Few Real Successes

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Now for the Bad News

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

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

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

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

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

Why Less Carnage?

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Micro Machines World Series review   

A couple of years ago, Codemasters attempted to revive the top down racing genre with Toybox Turbos. It was essentially Micro Machines, but without the license to call it Micro Machines and although the gameplay was basic, it managed to capture the essence of what made the original games so special.

The success of that release must have paid off because Micro Machines: World Series sees Codemasters reclaiming that famous name, although with it comes a lot of extra baggage, including some rather odd in-game design choices that fundamentally change the spirit of the series.

While Turbos was a charming nostalgia trip, World Series often feels calculated and almost soulless. Whatever deals were made with Hasbro for the Micro Machines name seem to have come at a price and Nerf branding is slapped liberally over the scenery and the UI. Familiar weapons from Toybox, the Tommy Gun, the Hammer and the Mines are rebranded as Nerf products, while countless Nerf guns litter the tracks and arenas. It all feels a bit like you're playing an advert rather than a game.

          1975-1979 MG Midget Steering Wheel Correct Installation (4 replies)   
The MG Midget has too large a steering wheel blocking part of the view thru windshield.and definitely too close to the driver. Smaller aftermarket steering wheels are available, but the hub adapter places the steering wheel even closer to the driver. The solution is to remove the hub from the original steering wheel. It is spot welded and is easy to cut off with a band saw. Next, simply weld a round disc to hub with center of disc cut out for the bolt. If you cannot do this a machine shop will perform it for you. Unlike some or all hub adapters, the turn signals will cancel after a turn with original hub.

I bought a 13.5" steering wheel with a 1.5" dish from ebay for $59. I simply placed the steering wheel 180 degrees around for a negative dish. The steering wheel now is over 3" further away from the driver vs the stock position. The top of the steering wheel is now same level as windshield washer arm looking thru the windshield. The view thru the windshield is now unblocked making a more pleasurable car to drive. I bent back the turning signal & wiper stalk using a T&B terminal crimp tool. The tool has a 1/4" grip on the stalk to prevent the stalk from kinking. I finally added a $5 MG emblem on the horn button from ebay. Three inches does not seem like much, but really makes a large difference for a more comfortable driving position. And, it is much easier to get in & out of the car. See pictures.

          Johanna Konta Withdraws from Eastbourne Semi-Final with Spine Injury   

British tennis star Johanna Konta has withdrawn from the semi-finals of the 2017 Aegon International in Eastbourne, Sussex, due to a back injury just a day after defeating world No. 1 Angelique Kerber to advance to the last four. 

Konta was scheduled to face Karolina Pliskova in her semi-final fixture to continue her preparation ahead of Wimbledon, but the official WTA website confirmed on Friday that she will be unable to continue.

Pliskova clinches a walkover victory as a result and advances to the Eastbourne final, where she will meet either Caroline Wozniacki or Heather Watson.

Konta recovered from a heavy fall to beat Kerber in their quarter-final clash on Thursday, after also defeating French Open champion Jelena Ostapenko earlier in the day to seal two morale-boosting wins.

It's particularly disappointing news for the world No. 7 considering it's fallen in such close proximity to Wimbledon, which is set to get underway on Monday.

WTA Insider illustrated the form Konta has shown of late:

As fate would have it, Konta's fall occurred with the Briton at match point, 6-3, 5-4 up against Kerber. Eurosport UK provided footage of the tumble in question:

Although the 26-year-old rallied to finish off her opponent at the time, playing through the pain won't be an option for Konta any longer as she takes her leave of Eastbourne hoping for a full recovery in time for Wimbledon.

It remains to be seen how possible that will be given the competition is now just days away, but the Guardian's Jacob Steinberg provided some hopeful quotes from the star on Friday morning:

Konta has been drawn opposite Su-Wei Hsieh of Chinese Taipei in the first round of this year's Wimbledon, which looked as though it might be her best-ever chance at major silverware.

A run to the Australian Open quarter-finals for the second year in succession earlier in 2017 showed she's ready to contend with the world's best, but an ill-timed back injury could see her Grand Slam progress halted for now.

          Acupuntura estética facial - note a diferença na primeira sessão.   

Quando se fala em tratamentos de beleza facial, muitos pensam nos famosos peeling, laser; porém poucos conhecem os benefícios da Acupuntura associada a máscara de Stiper (marca registrada).

Através da limpeza da pele com produtos específicos, acupuntura em pontos locais e sistêmicos, mais aplicação da máscara em conjunto com máscara térmica, obtêm-se resultados aparentes em relação a clareamento, amenização de rugas e tonificação da pele.

Porém, antes de ilustrar esse processo, vale a pena entender rapidamente o que é o Stiper.

Na forma de pastilhas para uso externo ou máscara, contém micro cristais de quartzo com silício, que são condutores e ordenadores de ondas e frequências.
O silício é um elemento químico encontrado em argila, areia, quartzo, granito, assim como no corpo humano; sendo amplamente utilizado em aparelhos eletrônicos pela sua atuação sobre ondas eletromagnéticas.


No âmbito da Medicina Chinesa, o uso do Stiper externo promove o equilíbrio energético dos acupontos (pontos dos meridianos de acupuntura), trigger points (pontos de tensão) ou simplesmente do local afetado, além de clarear e tonificar a pele e amenizar manchas e rugas no caso da máscara.

Abaixo, segue a ilustração de uma única sessão.

Após agulhamento local e sistêmico já é possível notar diferenças na tonificação da pele

          Acupuntura NÃO é Ato Médico!   
Diante das informações errôneas divulgadas pela mídia, que possui o papel de "instruir" a população, muitos leigos e até mesmo profissionais mau informados acham que atualmente a Acupuntura é exclusiva da classe médica. 

Infelizmente não podemos mais confiar naquilo que a mídia diz, porque seja por falta de informação (e de interesse em buscar a verdade) ou por interesse em beneficiar uma determinada classe ou grupo (no caso os médicos que contribuíram bastante para divulgar informações erradas), o conteúdo daquilo que é divulgado já não é mais selecionado, prejudicando a população e como no atual caso, diversos profissionais, em prol de sabe-se lá o que.

O ato médico (sim, em letras minúsculas) é um projeto de lei que irá regulamentar a medicina (por incrível que pareça, a medicina ainda não é regulamentada) e precisa ser aprovado em algum momento, porém não da forma que está, já que lesaria milhares de pessoas aumentando consideravelmente o índice de desemprego no nosso país e prejudicando em proporções absurdas a saúde da população.

Projetos de leis precisam ser aprovados diversas vezes antes de serem sancionados pela Presidência. E o ato médico não virou lei, não foi sancionado! 

O Conselho Nacional de Saúde deixa claro que as práticas integrativas e complementares a saúde, como a Acupuntura, são de caráter multiprofissional. Não há lei que regulamente a Acupuntura, e também não há lei que regulamente o seu uso exclusivamente pelos médicos.

Como não há lei, há Portarias, e em 3 de maio de 2006 foi criada a Portaria do Ministério da Saúde nº 971 que aprova a Política Nacional de Práticas Integrativas e Complementares no SUS; sendo que o TRF-1 afirmou através da sua imprensa que essa portaria está válida lembrando que a mesma segue a orientação da Organização Mundial de Saúde (OMS) que considera a Medicina Chinesa de caráter multiprofissional.

A prática da Medicina Chinesa tem esse caráter definido pela OMS, e tem sido assim pelo mundo afora. Mas então vem o brasileiro dizendo-se "preocupado com o bem-estar do povo" e decide monopolizar  algo que existe há mais de 5.000 anos e que nunca foi exclusivo de uma categoria profissional. Vale lembrar a esses pequenos "profissionais" que a Acupuntura vai MUITO além de inserir agulha!

Abaixo, segue a matéria sobre o assunto publicada na Fisioterapia em Revista, pelo Crefito-3.





          Hábito X Vício: entenda as diferenças e cuide melhor da sua saúde!   
Saber se um comportamento é hábito ou vício pode ser o diferencial para um tratamento eficaz. Entenda a seguir cada um deles.


O hábito ocorre quando um comportamento aprendido é repetido frequentemente, de forma consciente ou inconsciente. Hábitos podem ser bons ou ruins, como o hábito da leitura ou o hábito de roer as unhas, respectivamente.


Já o vício é uma tendência habitual para o "mal", o "ruim"; e a real necessidade faz com que o indivíduo o repita constantemente.

Mas qual a relação disso com o trabalho do fisioterapeuta?

Em poucas palavras, o hábito é muito mais fácil de ser "corrigido" quando se faz necessário. Tanto do ponto de vista orientativo quanto através da medicina chinesa - acupuntura, auriculoterapia.
Já o vício demanda um esforço e tempo maior.

Quando a pessoa senta em uma posição prejudicial para a coluna, músculos e articulações pelo simples fato de estar habituada a isso (Imagem 1) a correção é mais fácil do que para aquela que adota essa postura por um vício, uma real necessidade (Imagem 2), porque sente dores ao corrigir a postura por exemplo (dores ao adotar uma boa postura indicam fraqueza, encurtamento muscular, diminuição da flexibilidade), ou porque possui deformidades já instaladas, hereditárias (sem relação com hábito e vício) ou adquiridas (podem ter relações com hábitos inadequados por tempo prolongado).

(Imagem 1)

(Imagem 2)

Pensando em algo mais cotidiano, podemos falar sobre o fumo. 
Aquele que faz uso do cigarro por hábito acaba fumando em momentos em que a vontade nem se faz presente; já o que possui o vício sente necessidade de fumar, com crises de abstinência que geram sintomas como irritabilidade, ansiedade, tremores, sudorese, alterações no sono e hábitos intestinais. 
Para o viciado, fatores como estar em locais inapropriados ou doença não o impedem de arrumar um jeito para saciar sua vontade.

E qual a importância dessas diferenças no tratamento?

Sempre há um grande probabilidade de um hábito se tornar um vício quando repetido constantemente por um longo período de tempo. E uma vez que o primeiro é mais fácil e rápido de tratar, o ideal é que ao notar-se a presença de hábitos "ruins", que não são saudáveis, um tratamento seja procurado de imediato.

Vale lembrar também que o vício nos consome, tira nosso controle e nos domina. Por isso, nenhum tipo de vício é bom, porque o equilíbrio se faz necessário em todos os aspectos da vida. Ser viciado em um legume como vagem, por exemplo, ainda assim é ruim, porque o excesso sempre faz mal.

Portanto, procurar um tratamento ao notar hábitos prejudiciais ou vícios é fundamental para garantir uma vida mais saudável e com qualidade. Para aqueles que acometem a estrutura do corpo, como a postura, a fisioterapia e o método pilates apresentam grandes resultados. Já para aqueles mais ligados a fatores emocionais, como dependência química (lícita ou ilícita), a acupuntura e os demais métodos que compõe a abordagem através da medicina chinesa proporcionam um tratamento eficaz.

Não deixe a sua saúde em segundo plano! Os benefícios ao adotar-se bons hábitos são inúmeros e sentidos em pouquíssimo tempo.

          Hábitos de vida e a Tradição Chinesa   

Que o estresse tem consumido nosso tempo e prejudicado nossos hábitos de vida, isso muitos sabem, mas quantos já se perguntaram o quanto isso afeta a nossa saúde a longo prazo?

Segundo a Medicina Chinesa, possuímos uma Essência que é doada pelos nossos pais, conhecida também por Energia Ancestral, ou Jing Pré Celestial.

Mas para o funcionamento adequado do nosso organismo, precisamos da interação desta com a Essência Adquirida, ou Jing Pós Celestial, obtida através da nossa alimentação e respiração. 
Uma boa alimentação e um bom condicionamento cardiorrespiratório (adquirido através de exercícios), que proporciona uma distribuição de oxigênio pelo corpo mais eficaz, garantem um bom Jing adquirido.

Essa Essência pode ser comparada a uma vela: a hereditariedade responsabiliza-se pelo diâmetro, enquanto nossos hábitos pela queima. E como toda vela, aquilo que se perde não se recupera.

Má alimentação, noites mal dormidas, sentimentos que nos consomem, vícios, excesso de trabalho; todos são fatores que aceleram a perda da nossa Essência.

Esse fato é visualizado ao lembrarmos em como ficam as pessoas  em fase terminal de uma doença. Temos a nítida impressão de que a Essência dessa pessoa está se esvaindo. E realmente é isso que acontece; é a vela se apagando.

A Acupuntura pode auxiliar no equilíbrio energético do nosso organismo, fisiologicamente e emocionalmente; porém ter bons hábitos é fundamental para uma boa saúde.

Lembre-se: somos aquilo que comemos, que pensamos, e o que queremos ser! 
Portanto, busque o equilíbrio para uma saúde melhor.

          Quick Blog on Buildah.   
Buildah is a new tool that we released last week for building containers without requiring a container runtime daemon running. --nodockerneeded

Here is a blog that talks about some of its features.

http://www.projectatomic.io/blog/2017/06/introducing-buildah/

Our main goal was to make this simple.  I was asked by a fellow engineer about a feature that docker has for copying a file out of a container onto the host.  "docker cp".  In docker this ends up being a client server operation, and required someone to code it up.  We don't have this feature in buildah.  :^(

BUT, buildah gives you the primitives you need to do simpler functionality and allows you to use the full power of bash.  If I want to copy a file out of a container, I can simply mount the container and copy it out.

# mnt=$(buildah mount CONTAINER_ID)
# cp $mnt/PATHTOSRC /PATHTODEST
# buildah umount CONTAINER_ID


The beauty of this is we could use lots of tools, I could scp if I wanted to copy to another machine, or rsync, or ftp...

Once your have the container mounted up, you can use any bash command on it, to move files in or out.

buildah == simplicity

A peek inside the manual for the game WarBirds for the Atari Lynx Portable Entertainment System. This page reads: AERIAL ARMAGEDDON! It's World War I and you are the newest pilot in the Army Air Force. Your eyes almost bug out as you are led to your aeroplane, an awesome biplane fresh from the factory.

The time has come to put your training to the test, to find out what you're really made of. It's time to join the WarBirds! WarBirds is a simulation of aerial combat. You may play alone and hone your skills, but the real thrills come when you engage your friends in deadly dogfights.

          Shoddy back pain information from Consumer Reports   

Dr. Harriet Hall, critiquing a recent issue of Consumer Reports about back pain:

I found the [Consumer Reports] articles on back pain very disappointing. I hope I can still trust Consumer Reports when shopping for a washing machine, but I have no confidence that I can trust them when looking for an effective medical treatment. They seem not to understand the difference between anecdotes and data, between a popularity contest and a controlled scientific study. These articles may do harm by encouraging readers to try treatments that don’t work and by suggesting that it is reasonable to prioritize testimonial evidence over scientific studies. On the other hand, these articles may do some good insofar as they may dissuade some patients from rushing to a doctor and demanding imaging studies or prescription drugs.

Well, at least there’s that. But most of what CR published was horrifyingly naive and misleading. I scanned this issue in a grocery store lineup and was rolling my eyes within seconds. And then fuming: it seems like the flood of misinformation about back pain is infinite! I’ve been actively debunking back pain myths for about 15 years now, and the need for it has barely changed in all that time. So-called information like this, reaching a massive audience, seriously exacerbates the problem.

I think Consumer Reports has made serious mistakes in other domains over the last few years, and they are quickly burning the credibility it took decades to earn. Sadly, they will still have a strong enough reputation for years to come to do plenty of damage with content like this.

          Bret Stephens and MSNBC’s hiring spree: The network keeps moving right   


Sarah Wasko / Media Matters

Update: MSNBC and Greta Van Susteren have agreed to part ways.

MSNBC is now a pasture for pseudo-intellectual conservatives. Climate denier and Iraq War booster Bret Stephens is just the latest right-wing hire at the network.

In recent months NBC News Chairman Andy Lack has overseen a hiring spree of right-wing pundits and former Fox News personalities. The stable includes Hugh Hewitt, Megyn Kelly, Charlie Sykes, Greta Van Susteren, and George Will. They join other conservatives at the network: Elise Jordan, Steve Schmidt, Michael Steele, Rick Tyler, Nicolle Wallace, and former Republican congressman Joe Scarborough. This is to say nothing of NBC News contributor and Trump apologist Mark Halperin; and given their frequent appearances, it may be just a matter of time until David Frum, a speechwriter for then-President George W. Bush, former George W. Bush chief of staff Andy Card, and neocon Bill Kristol join the network as well.

Compared to CNN’s boorish Trumpists or the state media apparatchiks at Fox News, the common thread among MSNBC conservatives is a certain pretentious shine. They’re frequently just arguing that President Donald Trump is the wrong type of conservative, when in fact Trump is the apotheosis of everything conservatism has been careening toward for some time. (The exception is Hugh Hewitt, who is now just a huge Trump booster after vacillating during the campaign.) 

Many of these hires have direct, intimate connections to Bush, the most disastrous president in decades. Card, Frum, Jordan, and Wallace worked in the Bush administration, and Stephens, Kristol, Will, Scarborough, and Hewitt were all huge cheerleaders for the Iraq War. And that history matters. Two major media institutions, including a newspaper of record, are now paying Stephens essentially just to troll liberals with climate denial and to push America towards a war with Iran.

You can separate Lack’s hiring spree into two buckets: pundits and brands. Neither offer much value in the long run. In this media environment, opinions are cheap (including mine!). Everyone has one and most of them stink. There’s no long-term return on opinions (and no lack of people wanting to get on TV to share theirs).

Adding brands like Megyn Kelly or Greta Van Susteren is equally pointless. It’s no wonder that both of these shows have failed. There’s simply no audience for them outside the Fox News bubble. Particularly with Kelly, NBC News executives seem completely unaware that her entire show at Fox News was built around racial dog-whistling (with occasional moments of bucking the party line).

Also, as Ryan Grim noted, it is the progressive shows that Lack hasn’t touched that are succeeding the most.

Rather than spending all this money on right-wing pundits and big names, the true value-add for news networks now is reliable and aggressive journalism. That’s hard to do. It’s expensive. It’s time-consuming. But it’s ultimately what will define NBC News and MSNBC.

          All about Care for an Acrylic Aquarium Kit   
The practice of keeping aquariums came about in the late 1800's. They were fairly crude. Usually these ancient aquariums only had one side that was made of glass, with the other three sides being made of metal or wood. Most aquariums consisted of fish that were native to the region of its owner simply because of availability. Also most old school fish tanks contained only fresh water fish. The reason being that salt water would corrode the metal frame that held the aquarium together.




Aquariums drastically changed in the 1960's with the invention of silicone adhesive. Metal frames became obsolete and more people started to keep salt water fish and invertebrates. More recently glass tanks have become less frequently used due to the flexibility of acrylic. Literally flexibility! Acrylic aquariums are far more for forgiving than there glass counterparts. If a heavy object strikes a glass tank, it will almost certainly break. The flexibility of an acrylic tank will prevent this catastrophe from happening. In addition, acrylic offers more flexibility in design than glass. Acrylic aquariums have been made into everything from coffee tables to gum ball machines.




That being said, there is a short downfall to owning an acrylic aquarium. They do scratch more easily than glass. When cleaning your aquarium, be careful not to use paper towels, and harsh or abrasive chemicals, as they can scratch the acrylic surface of the aquarium. Always use a cleaner specifically labeled safe for acrylic. Use plastic or rubber scrubbers, rather than metal to clean the sides of an acrylic tank. Be careful not to accidentally pick up a piece of substrate or gravel while cleaning the inside of the tank. However, if you do happen to scratch an acrylic aquarium, all is not lost. The tank can be repaired, unlike glass. There are acrylic repair kits available at specialty pet stores, your local hardware store and of course online.




When purchasing an acrylic aquarium kit, there will be many different options to choose from, at many different price points. Aquarium kits can be purchased at places such as specialty aquatic pet stores, from huge retail chains, or again online. A fish lover can choose from small cylinder shaped tanks that can double as a coffee table lamp to wall huge wall sized aquariums. While, there are some basic things that will be included in most kits, such as, a filter, some substrate or coral and sometimes lighting, the kits themselves can vary greatly. It really doesn't matter where you buy your starter kit, but keep in mind that it is extremely important to buy your fish from a reputable dealer. Don't buy fish that are hovering near the surface, or that are located in a tank with other dead fish. Fish diseases are extremely communicable. Be weary of a fish dealer that refuses to catch a specific fish out of the tank for you. After all this is going to be your fish and you have a right to choose.

          Por que ter uma memória ruim pode ser uma coisa boa, segundo a ciência

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

Publicado na Época Negócios

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Metallurgical And Chemicl Aspects Ot The Surgical Instruments Made From Matensitic Stainless Steel.   
The main necessity of all types of surgical instruments from the surgeon's point of view is Resistance To Corrosion.Hence, while evaluating alloy for an instrument, it is extremely essential to consider this property.However,the other factors,pertaining to manufacturing such as Forge-ability ,Weld-ability,Machine-ability,Cost etc; are also important.

Both martensitic and austenitic stainless steel are used for the manufacturing of surgical instruments.The typical applications include:-

i- AISI-304 (For Sheet Metal Item)
ii-AISI-410 (For Homeostatic Forceps)
iii-AISI-420 (For Scissors And Ronguers)
iv-AISI-440 (For Knives And Dental Pliers)

The carbon content between 0.12 to 0.15 is sufficient for Forceps as the requirement of hardness is up to 40 HRC,but for cutting instruments like Scissors and Knives, the carbon content, must be at least between 0.30 to 0.35%.The Chromium content up to 13% is acceptable, as up to this range, corrosion can be controlled,provided  proper fabrication polishing and cleaning methods are followed.

This product is made from natural millet in Northwest China. To make it different and more human we hand painted it to tell its tales. The paintings on the package tell the story of an old couple. They suffered terrible hunger from the drought and then a legendary bird gave them golden rice to eat. To show appreciation, they gave the golden rice to the world.

Traditions say that when praying, Chinese people tend to write blessings on fortune bags. For this reason, we write stories inside the boxes. We print them on local rice paper, which can be recycled and decomposed, and is more environment-friendly.

          Upgrading Domino Server from 7.0.2. to 8.5.2. Physical or Virtual Server?   

As mentioned above, it can be done.  Keep these things in mind:

1.  Make sure your disk subsystem is strong and fast.

2.  If you run the VM with less cores than the physical process on the virtual host machine you may not need as many PVUs as you had before.  We actually dropped the number of PVUs we had this year due to this.  Check with IBM or a trusted reseller first on this though.

3.  Make sure you do not try to upgrade and move to a physical server at the same time.  Either move your current 7.02 install to a virtual environment first and then upgrade or upgrade your current 7.0.2 install on the physical box and then move it.


          Upgrading Domino Server from 7.0.2. to 8.5.2. Physical or Virtual Server?   

What is your actual issue?

Can it be done yes.

You will have to watch your licensing PUVs to ensure you don't "break out" by visualizing domino on a more powerful server. It has to do more with the cpu power than what you could do. Cost wise, it may be cheaper to install a small physical machine than to upgrade to a multicore virtual machine.


          US Blacklists China Bank, Revving Up Pressure Over NKorea   

The United States has blacklisted a small Chinese bank accused of illicit dealings with North Korea, escalating the pressure on Beijing to rein in its wayward ally amid increased signs of frustration among President Donald Trump and his top advisers with China’s diplomatic efforts. The Treasury Department on Thursday declared the Bank of Dandong a “primary money-laundering concern,” proposing to sever it entirely from the U.S. financial system, pending a 60-day review period. Although Trump’s treasury secretary said the move didn’t target China, it comes a week after the president lamented that China’s promise to help with North Korea “has not worked out.” Calls to Bank of Dandong rang unanswered on Friday. Beijing, however, criticized Washington’s action, saying that unilateral sanctions outside the U.N. Security Council were inappropriate. “We also firmly oppose any individual country to exercise long-arm jurisdiction under its own domestic law,” said Lu Kang, spokesman for China’s foreign ministry. Lu added that Beijing will investigate possible wrongdoings by Chinese individuals and entities under Chinese laws. Trump had been leaning on President Xi Jinping to help stop the North’s development of nuclear weapons before they can threaten the U.S. homeland. A main focus of the coordination has been getting China to fully enforce international sanctions intended to starve North Korea of revenue for its nuclear and missile programs. The U.S. action is likely to anger China, which handles about 90 percent of North Korea’s external trade, and whose banks and companies are said to provide Pyongyang access to the U.S.-dominated international financial system. The sanctions bar Americans from doing business with Bank of Dandong, which is based in a northeastern Chinese city on the North Korean border that serves as a gateway for trade with the isolated nation. The U.S. also slapped sanctions Thursday on a Chinese shipping company and two Chinese people that it said have facilitated illegal activities by North Korea. Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the U.S. still wants to work with Beijing on combating the North Korean threat. “We are in no way targeting China with these actions,” Mnuchin told a White House news briefing. The punitive steps were presaged by a tweet from Trump last week reflecting dissatisfaction with Beijing’s efforts. “While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!” Trump tweeted on June 20. The Trump administration may be struggling to maintain international pressure on Pyongyang. The president was to meet for the first time Thursday with South Korea’s new leader, President Moon Jae-in, who has long advocated outreach to North Korea. His predecessor had staunchly backed Trump’s harder line. Mnuchin said the Bank of Dandong has facilitated millions of dollars of transactions for companies involved in North Korea’s weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs. Anthony Ruggiero, a sanctions expert and former Treasury Department official, described it as a small Chinese bank “sitting at the heart” of trade between North Korea and China. “This is a strong message to Chinese leaders that the Trump administration will act against North Korea’s sanctions evasion in China,” he said. The other targeted Chinese entities are: —Dalian Global Unity Shipping Co., which Treasury accused of transporting 700,000 tons of freight annually, including coal and steel products, […]

          Fixed-odds betting terminal review delayed until autumn   

Rift between Treasury and DCMS over regulation and growing influence of DUP put a brake on timetable

A long-awaited review of fixed-odds betting terminals (FOBTs) has been delayed until the autumn, following a rift between the Treasury and the government department responsible for the gambling industry over regulation of the controversial machines.

The government’s decision has been further complicated by the fact that MPs in the Democratic Unionist party, which holds the balance of power in parliament, are in favour of cutting the maximum FOBT stake from £100 to as low as £2.

Definitely not in long grass. Process is really important on this issue.

          The Guardian view on Hong Kong: Britain has a duty to defend its freedoms | Editorial   
As the region marks 20 years since its return to China, there is rightly concern about its future

It is 20 years since Hong Kong returned to China. Now as then, there is trepidation. In his first visit as Chinese leader, Xi Jinping has overseen a military parade – a reminder of Beijing’s might – and warned of “new challenges” to the “one country, two systems” framework which allows a high degree of autonomy for the region. On Friday, the foreign ministry described the Joint Declaration, the Sino-British treaty on those arrangements, as a historical document which no longer had practical significance.

Britain’s seizure of Hong Kong is a key part of China’s narrative of a century of humiliation by imperialist foreign powers, ended by the Communist party’s triumph. (Its belief that the west is determined to rain on its parade will be reinforced by the US announcements of sanctions on a Chinese bank linked to North Korea and arms sales to Taiwan just as Mr Xi arrived in the region for the anniversary celebrations.)

          Tips: If your Vista upgrade install is crashing check your disk isn't dynamic   

Title says it all really.  Vista shouldn't be installed to Dynamic disks - in fact Vista Home Premium doesn't even support Dynamic disks.

I got caught by this recently as I was trying to upgrade an XP MediaCenter machine which someone else has originally set up and the upgrade kept failing for no apparent reason in odd ways.

It would get stuck expanding files or completing installation. It was only when out of desperation I went to do a clean install I realised that the XP disk had been formatted as dynamic.

If I hadn't already tried a clean install I could have converted the partition to normal in xp (google converting dynamic partitions). As I had tried a clean install I boooted the install disk and went to recovery mode and choise command prompt. I then used diskpart to clean the parttion...

DiskPart

List Disk

This showed my drive as disk 0

Select Disk 0

Clean

exit

Rebooted the install, selected my newly cleaned partition  and hey presto the install goes past the point of crashing - all is well.

          Tip of the day - Quieten your Hard Disk with Vista ReadyBoost   
A lot has been written about the performance advantage of adding a memory card or usb stick to your Vista machine to make use of the ReadyBoost feature but one interesting side effect is that it can also reduce the amount of access needed to your hard disk and appear to make it quieter.

To quote the official Microsoft blurb:


The flash memory device serves as an additional memory cache—that is, memory that the computer can access much more quickly than it can access data on the hard drive. Windows ReadyBoost relies on the intelligent memory management of Windows SuperFetch and can significantly improve system responsiveness.


Now a lot of this data would normally be held on the hard disk and will need reading regularly, this can be the cause of the chuntering you can hear from lots of hard drives. Putting in a high-speed flash device can significantly reduce this. Obviously its not going to make the drive any quieter when it actually has to access data but it certainly has had avery beneficial effect where I have tried it.

Performance and a quieter life - two for the price of one :-)

Edit: I should point out that the cache is still written to disk so if you swap programs a lot it will still need to write out the changes and you will see less benefit in terms of noise. Q: Why does it still write to disk? A: Have you never pulled out a USB key by accident? The system need something to fall back on.

          Handelspartner laufen Sturm gegen China   
Peking. Alle großen Handelspartner Chinas haben gegen neue Hürden der Volksrepublik für Importe von Nahrungsmitteln protestiert. Nach Informationen der dpa in Peking vom Freitag warnen die EU, die USA, Japan, Australien und andere Staaten in einem Brief an die chinesische Regierung vor "bedeutenden Störungen im Handel und Verzerrungen", sollten die Vorschriften wie geplant zum 1. Oktober in Kraft treten. Die Anforderungen stünden in keinem Verhältnis zu den Risiken, die von diesen Produkten ausgingen.China hat die Welthandelsorganisation (WTO) von den Plänen bereits unterrichtet, so dass jetzt eine 60-tägige Beratungsfrist läuft. Die neuen Barrieren sind international unüblich und werden von den Handelspartnern als protektionistisch und diskriminierend empfunden. Jede Nudel, jeder Keks und jedes Bonbon muss demnach künftig ein eigenes amtliches Unbedenklichkeitszertifikat für China vorweisen. Kontrolle statt Freihandel Die Forderungen seien praktisch nicht zu erfüllen, meinen Experten. Denn die Behörden in Deutschland oder anderen Ländern müssten bescheinigen, dass die Waren "die Anforderungen chinesischer Gesetze und gesetzlicher Vorschriften sowie Standards erfüllen", wie Chinas Qualitätsaufsicht (AQSIQ) fordert. Solche Einrichtungen gibt es in den Herkunftsländern nicht, sie müssten eigens geschaffen werden.Die Kontrolle gilt als Beispiel für den Widerspruch, dass China einerseits seine eigenen Markthürden erhöht, während sich Staats- und Parteichef Xi Jinping andererseits international als Vorreiter für Freihandel präsentiert. Handelsfragen und Protektionismus sind auch Themen bei Xis Besuch in Berlin und beim Gipfel der führenden Wirtschaftsmächte (G20) anschließend in Hamburg.Die Handelspartner vermuten, dass es bei den international unüblichen Regeln weniger um die Abwehr von Gefahren für chinesische Verbraucher geht als vielmehr um den Schutz eigener Hersteller.

          A Wonderful Weekend in Wymondham - Pillar Box House   
Curling up with a book next to an open fire after an evening watching the stars from the hot tub is a wonderful way to spend a winters evening. We travelled to Wymondham towards the end of last year for a family break and it was one of the most relaxing getaways I've experienced. To the extent that I've already been looking to book a return trip with Cottages.com for the Easter break.




The rural location was perfect for us as we could enjoy the wildlife and peaceful walks with Spartan each day, pets are welcome to stay at Pillar Box House for no additional fee, yet it was also reasonably close to the beach and attractions there.

The property itself is detached and was like a home from home with all of the essential tools and equipment required, including an incredible stove, for cooking a family feast. There was also a washing machine in case you fancy sorting your laundry before travelling home and if you do wish to share a photo or two online with loved ones (who doesn't like to brag that they are having a wonderful time?) there is wifi available.




Upon pulling up in the driveway and entering the pastel pink building into the reception hall, we were rather shocked by the size of it. At first glance outside it doesn't appear huge but looks are certainly deceiving as there are 4 large bedrooms spread across the first and second floor, a good sized bathroom, plenty of storage space, plus an additional en-suite, shower room and dressing area.

On the ground floor there is a large kitchen diner which opens out onto a pretty patio and garden with furniture and a luxurious lounge area where we spent a lot of time relaxing. It would be ideal for several couples to enjoy together or even a very large family/two families to share - there really is just so much room to explore and it sleeps 8 without getting under anyone's feet.





The Mini Mes shared the twin bedroom which had a beautiful beamed ceiling, like much of the rest of the property, whereas I slept in a cosy double room at the top of the stairs. Being an old building the floors are a little uneven and creaky at times but this added to the feel of Pillar Box House along with the pretty antiques, artwork and traditional decor throughout.

We all felt very relaxed and almost in a world of our own as it was so peaceful.







On the first evening we arrived quite late, coming straight from the school run on a Friday afternoon, so once the fire was lit I began dinner with the groceries we took with us (saucy mascarpone and bacon gnocchi). It was lovely having everything to hand and we also loved the unexpected welcome pack consisting of quality food and drink to devour. Thumbs up for the wine - it's the little touches like this that make such a difference to a holiday. 

We all sat around the beautiful table for a chat before loading the dishwasher, putting our swimwear on and heading outside to the private hot tub. This is one of the main reasons I selected this particular accommodation and it didn't fail to please! It's not overlooked at all and it was easy to control the bubbles and temperature. It was also useful having plastic cups in the kitchen as it meant I didn't have to worry about balancing any glasses outside in the dark.




 There are original features in place, like the narrow staircases, which add so much character to the building. Logs are included to burn in the fire and you can pick up extras at the supermarket just a few minutes away if necessary, although we didn't need to. 

There is a magical reading area in the reception area which reminded me of the library in Beauty and the Beast on a slightly smaller scale, my favourite Disney movie, and also a collection of DVDs, CDs and games in the antique dresser in the lounge which are ideal for rainy days. 

There really is everything you could possibly need available for you.




 We spent the majority of our time at Pillar Box House simply unwinding and escaping the hustle and bustle of work which was wonderful for us. I can't remember the last time when I've really stepped away from the laptop and put my feet up and this was the perfect opportunity to do just that. We did of course explore a little but with such a cosy base to return to we didn't venture that far, just to Great Yarmouth for a couple of hours and around the local fields with the dog.




Prices start from around £500 for 7 nights although you can book 3 nights for a long weekend or a midweek break if you prefer. I would highly recommend a stay here whether you're looking for a romantic getaway or to enjoy the nearby golf and fishing facilities - I would most definitely return for a second stay.

          Shimmer 'n Sparkle Sew Crazy Machine   
If your little ones fancy taking up a new hobby to kick start the year, sewing is a great way to get their creative juices flowing. It's ideal for anyone that likes fashion or art in particular too, just like Minxy and I.

We've been putting the Shimmer n Sparkle Sew Crazy Machine to the test recently and we've had plenty of fun with fabric, making a variety of items.




Aimed at children aged 8+ this is an ideal stater machine for tweens and teens that want to give sewing a go, without parents breaking the bank in the process on equipment, and before buying a costly professional/adult alternative. The set comes with 2 small pieces of material, patterns, thread, needles and a useful storage caddy to pop all of the bits and pieces in to. All of the essentials that you require although it would've been nice to have more or larger pieces of cloth for additional projects.

The machine is also pre-threaded for convenience and has two speed settings which can be altered via the pedal or machine itself. It doesn't however come with the 4 AA batteries that are needed to operate it or an mains adapter (we would recommend getting one as it can be frustrating when turning the machine upside-down to remove batteries mid project). 





You need to think safety first when needles and children are combined so the guard is a great feature to have, even if it makes it slightly more difficult to replace a needle or thread if they snap which we discovered does happen. It does protect little fingers however so it is probably worth the short delay when unscrewing it each time.




Minxy found the machine relatively easy to use after a little practice and assistance to begin, and she was able to make a pocket for her mobile phone. She is looking forward to making gifts for her friends in the upcoming month as her confidence with Sew Crazy increases.


You can watch the machine in action here:



The Shimmer 'n Sparkle Sew Crazy Machine has a RRP of £29.99 and is available from a variety of stores including Amazon.

          Creating a SharePoint DataLake with SQL Server using Enzo Unified   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/hroggero/archive/2017/06/19/creating-a-sharepoint-datalake-with-sql-server-using-enzo-unified.aspx

In this blog post I will show how you can easily copy a SharePoint list to a SQL Server table, and keep the data updated one a specific frequency, allowing you to easily create a DataLake for your SharePoint lists. This will work with SharePoint 2013 and higher, and with SharePoint Online. While you can spend a large amount of time learning the SharePoint APIs and its many subtleties, it is far more efficient to configure simple replication jobs that will work under most scenarios.

The information provided in this post will help you get started in setting a replication of SharePoint lists to a SQL Server database, so that you can query the local SQL Server database from Excel, Reporting tools, or even directly to the database. You should also note that Enzo Unified provides direct real-time access to SharePoint Lists through native SQL commands so you can view, manage and update SharePoint List Items.

image

 

Installing Enzo Unified

To try the steps provided in this lab, you will need the latest version of Enzo Unified (1.7 or higher) provided here:  http://www.enzounified.com/download. The download page also contains installation instructions.

Enzo Unified Configuration

Once Enzo Unified has been installed, start Enzo Manager (located in the Enzo Manager directory where Enzo was installed). Click on File –> Connect and enter the local Enzo connection information. 

NOTE:  Enzo Unified is a Windows Service that looks like SQL Server; you must connect Enzo Manager to Enzo Unified which by default is running on port 9550. The password should be the one you specified during the installation steps. The following screen shows typical connection settings against Enzo Unified:

image

Create Connection Strings

Next, you will need to create “Central Connection Strings” so that Enzo will know how to connect to the source system (SharePoint) and the destination database (SQL Server). You manage connection strings from the Configuration –> Manage Connection Strings menu. In the screen below, you can see that a few connection strings have been created. The first one is actually a connection string to Enzo Unified, which we will need later.

image

The next step is to configure the SharePoint adapter by specifying the credentials used by Enzo Unified. Configuring the SharePoint adapter is trivial: three parameters are needed: a SharePoint login name, the password for the login, and the URL to your SharePoint site. You should make sure the login has enough rights to access SharePoint lists and access SharePoint Fields.

image

Once the configuration to the SharePoint site is complete, you can execute commands against Enzo Unified using SQL Server Management Studio.

Fetch records from SharePoint using SQL Server Management Studio

To try the above configuration, open SQL Server Management Studio, and connect to Enzo Unified (not SQL Server). From the same machine where Enzo is running, a typical connection screen looks like this:

image

Once you are connected to Enzo Unified, and assuming your SharePoint site has a list called Enzo Test, you can run simple SQL commands like this:

SELECT * FROM SharePoint.[list@Enzo Test]

Create a Virtual Table

You will also need to create a Virtual Table in Enzo so that the SharePoint list looks like a table in Enzo Unified. A Virtual Table is made of columns that match the SharePoint list you want to replicate. To do this, open Enzo Manager, select the SharePoint adapter, and create a new Virtual Table by clicking on the NEW icon; provide a name for the Virtual Table, and select the columns to create through a picker. In the example below, I am creating a Virtual Table called vEnzoTest, which mirrors a SharePoint List called ‘Enzo Test’.

image

The picker allows you to execute the SQL command to validate it is working. Clicking OK will automatically add all the requested columns to the Virtual Table.

Make sure to pick the ID and Modified columns; this will be required later.

image

Once completed, I can run commands like this against the SharePoint adapter using SQL Server Management Studio:

SELECT * FROM SharePoint.vEnzoTest

SELECT * FROM SharePoint.vEnzoTest WHERE Title ID > 100

The difference with the previous SQL command is that the virtual table will only return the columns specified by the Virtual Table.

Configure Data Sync Jobs

Once the Virtual Table has been created, you can add new Jobs to copy the SharePoint data into SQL Server, and keep updates synchronized with the SQL Server table. A simple configuration screen allows you to setup the data sync jobs. You can choose which operations to replicate, the destination table, and a schedule for data updates. In the example below I am setting up a 3 data sync jobs of the vPosts Virtual Table: initialization, insert/update, and delete, updated every 5 minutes.

image

You can also use Enzo Manager to monitor the data sync jobs, or run them manually.

Once the jobs have been created, you can simply connect to the SQL Server database (not Enzo Unified) and see the replicated data. For example, you can connect to SQL Server, and run the following statement assuming the above destination table (as shown in the screenshot) has been created.

SELECT * FROM DataLake.SharePoint.vPosts

Conclusion

This post shows you how to easily configure Enzo Unified to replicate SharePoint lists to a local SQL Server database to enable reporting and other data integration projects such as a Data Lake.

          So you want to go Causal Neo4j in Azure? Sure we can do that   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/cskardon/archive/2017/04/26/so-you-want-to-go-causal-neo4j-in-azure-sure.aspx

So you might have noticed in the Azure market place you can install an HA instance of Neo4j – Awesomeballs! But what about if you want a Causal cluster?

image

Hello Manual Operation!

Let’s start with a clean slate, typically in Azure you’ve probably got a dashboard stuffed full of other things, which can be distracting, so let’s create a new dashboard:

image

Give it a natty name:

image

Save and you now have an empty dashboard. Onwards!

To create our cluster, we’re gonna need 3 (count ‘em) 3 machines, the bare minimum for a cluster. So let’s fire up one, I’m creating a new Windows Server 2016 Datacenter machine. NB. I could be using Linux, but today I’ve gone Windows, and I’ll probably have a play with docker on them in a subsequent post…I digress.

image

At the bottom of the ‘new’ window, you’ll see a ‘deployment model’ option – choose ‘Resource Manager’

image

Then press ‘Create’ and start to fill in the basics!

image

  • Name: Important to remember what it is, I’ve optimistically gone with 01, allowing me to expand all the way up to 99 before I rue the day I didn’t choose 001.
  • User name: Important to remember how to login!
  • Resource group: I’m creating a new resource group, if you have an existing one you want to use, then go for it, but this gives me a good way to ensure all my Neo4j cluster resources are in one place.

Next, we’ve got to pick our size – I’m going with DS1_V2 (catchy) as it’s pretty much the cheapest, and well – I’m all about being cheap.

image

You should choose something appropriate for your needs, obvs. On to settings… which is the bulk of our workload.

image

I’m creating a new Virtual Network (VNet) and I’ve set the CIDR to the lowest I’m allowed to on Azure (10.0.0.0/29) which gives me 8 internal IP addresses – I only need 3, so… waste.

image

I’m leaving the public IP as it is, no need to change that, but I am changing the Network Security Group (NSG) as I intend on using the same one for each of my machines, and so having ‘01’ on the end (as is default) offends me Smile

image

Feel free to rename your diagnostics storage stuff if you want. The choice as they say – is yours.

Once you get the ‘ticks’ you are good to go:

image

It even adds it to the dashboard… awesomeballs!

image

Whilst we wait, lets add a couple of things to the dashboard, well, one thing, the Resource group, so view the resource groups (menu down the side) and press the ellipsis on the correct Resource group and Pin to the Dashboard:

image

So now I have:

image

After what seems like a lifetime – you’ll have a machine all setup and ready to go – well done you!

image

Now, as it takes a little while for these machines to be provisioned, I would recommend you provision another 2 now, the important bits to remember are:

  • Use the existing resource group:
    image
  • Use the same disk storage
  • Use the same virtual network
  • Use the same Network Security Group
    image

BTW, if you don’t you’re only giving yourself more work, as you’ll have to move them all to the right place eventually, may as well do it in one!

Whilst they are doing their thing, let’s setup Neo4j on the first machine, so let’s connect to it, firstly click on the VM and then the ‘connect’ button

image

We need two things on the machine

  1. Neo4j Enterprise
  2. Java

The simplest way I’ve found (provided your interwebs is up to it) is to Copy the file on your local machine, and Right-Click Paste onto the VM desktop – and yes – I’ve found it works way better using the mouse – sorry CLI-Guy

Once there, let’s install Java:

image

Then extract Neo4j to a comfy location, let’s say, the ‘C’ drive, (whilst we’re here… !Whaaaaat!!??? image 

an ‘A’ drive? I haven’t seen one of those for at least 10 years, if not longer).

Anyways - extracted and ready to roll:

image

Did you get ‘failed’ deployments on those two new VMs? I did – so I went into each one and pressed ‘Start’ and that seemed to get them back up and running.

#badtimes

(That’s right – I just hashtagged in a blog post)

Anyways, we’ve now got the 3 machines up and I’m guessing you can rinse and repeat the setting up of Java and Neo4j on the other 2 machines. Now.

To configure the cluster!

We need the internal IPs of the machines, we can run ‘IpConfig’ on each machine, or just look at the V-Net on the portal and get it all in one go:

image

So, machine number 1… open up ‘neo4j.conf’ which you’ll find in the ‘conf’ folder of Neo4j. Ugh. Notepad – seriously – it’s 2017, couldn’t there be at least a slight  improvement in notepad by now???

I’m not messing with any of the other settings, purely the clustering stuff – in real life you would probably configure it a little bit more. So I’m setting:

  • dbms.mode
    • CORE
  • causal_clustering.initial_discovery_members
    • 10.0.0.4:5000,10.0.0.5:5000;10.0.0.6:5000

I’m also uncommenting all the defaults in the ‘Causal Clustering Configuration’ section – I rarely trust defaults. I also uncomment

  • dbms.connectors.default_listen_address

So it’s contactable externally. Once the other two are setup as well we’re done right?

HA No chance! Firewalls – that’s right in plural. Each machine has one – which needs to be set to accept the ports:

5000,6000,7000,7473,7474,7687

image

Obviously, you can choose not to do the last 3 ports and be uncontactable, or indeed choose any combo of them.

Aaaand, we need to configure the NSG:

image

I have 3 new ‘inbound’ rules – 7474 (browser), 7687 (bolt), 7000 – Raft.

Right. Let’s get this cluster up and contactable.

Log on to one of your VMs and fire up PowerShell (in admin mode)

image

First we navigate to the place we installed Neo4j (in my case c:\neo4j\neo4j-enterprise-3.1.3\bin) and then we import the Neo4j-Management module. To do this you need to have your ExecutionPolicy set appropriately. Being Lazy, I have it set to ‘Bypass’ (Set-ExecutionPolicy bypass).

Next we fire up the server in ‘console’ mode – this allows us to see what’s happening, for real situations – you’re going to install it as a service.

You’ll see the below initially:

image

and it will sit like that until the other servers are booted up. So I’ll leave you to go do that now…

Done?

Good – now, we need to wait a little while for them to negotiate amongst themselves, but after a short while (let’s say 30 secs or less) you should see:

image

Congratulations! You have a cluster!

Logon to that machine via the IP it says, and you’ll see the Neo4j Browser, login and then run

:play sysinfo

image

You could now run something like:

Create (:User {Name:'Your Name'})

And then browse to the other machines to see it all nicely replicated.

          Integrating ASP.NET Core With Webforms Using IIS URL Rewrite   

Originally posted on: http://geekswithblogs.net/mrsteve/archive/2017/03/25/run-asp-net-core-mvc-alongside-webforms-iis-url-rewrite.aspx

I'm currently updating a legacy ASP.NET WebForms application to ASP.NET Core. Because big rewrites (almost) never work, it's a case of migrating sections of the site one at a time, having WebForms pass specific requests to ASP.NET Core, with no change to the end user's experience. How, you ask? With a couple of IIS tools and a sprinkle of web.config entries.

ASP.NET Core can be served via IIS, with IIS acting as a reverse proxy. Requests come into IIS, the ASPNetCoreModule routes them to Kestrel, and returns the results. In my scenario, the ASP.NET Core application is only ever accessible via WebForms, so it takes a little bit of setting up. Here's how.

Setting up IIS

AspNetCoreModule

Firstly, you need the AspNetCoreModule. Luckily, you probably already have it - Visual Studio installs it into IIS for you. To check, open IIS Manager, and at the server level open Modules in the IIS section - you should see it listed there. If not, you can install it via the ASP.NET Core Server Hosting Bundle - here's a direct link to download the installer: download!

Application Request Routing

Next, you need the Application Request Routing module to route requests rewritten by the URL Rewrite module (try saying that ten times fast). You can install this via IIS Manager - click Get New Web Platform Components in the right-hand column to open the Web Platform Installer, then search for ARR, and look for version 3.0:

ARR

Once that's installed, open Application Request Routing in the server-level IIS section (you may need to close and re-open IIS to see the icon), click Server Proxy Settings, check Enable proxy, and click Apply:

ARR

URL Rewrite

Finally, you need the URL Rewrite module. This you can also install via the Web Platform Installer - just search for rewrite, and look for version 2.0:

UrlRewrite

Setting up ASP.NET Core

Firstly, you need IIS integration in your application. This is super easy, and you probably already have it - it's simply a call to UseIISIntegration() on the WebHostBuilder in your Program.cs. If you're missing it, UseIISIntegration is an extension method from the Microsoft.AspNetCore.Server.IISIntegration NuGet package.

That one line is all you need in your ASP.NET Core application - now you just publish the project. You can use a File System publish, go via WebDeploy, or whatever you prefer.

Finally, set up an IIS website pointing to your ASP.NET Core publish directory. Because this website will be accessed via WebForms only, bind it to a non-public port number - I'll use 1234 for our example:

CoreBindings

Setting up WebForms

Finally, you need to tell WebForms to send the appropriate requests to ASP.NET Core.

You can do this with rules in your web.config which configure the URL Rewrite module. For example, say you've migrated your news pages to an ASP.NET Core NewsController, the following rules tell IIS what to do with requests for the ASP.NET Core 'news' section:

<system.webServer>
 <rewrite>
  <rules>
   <rule name="AspNetCoreContent" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="^content/(.+)$" ignoreCase="true" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://localhost:1234/content/{R:1}" />
   </rule>
   <rule name="AspNetCoreNews" stopProcessing="true">
    <match url="^news(.*)$" ignoreCase="true" />
    <action type="Rewrite" url="http://localhost:1234/News{R:1}" />
   </rule>
  </rules>
 </rewrite>
</system.webServer>

Both rules have the same pattern: they both capture requests with URLs beginning with particular strings (content/ and news, respectively), and rewrite them to requests on port 1234 on the local machine. The {R:1} reference in the rewritten URLs is replaced with the captured group from the regular expression which matched the request URL. The content/ rule allows the ASP.NET Core application to reference static files in a content directory in its wwwroot, and have IIS route those requests back to the appropriate place.

And that's it! A page-by-page migration is underway with a few simple steps.

          Blacklisted China bank cited as a North Korea conduit to global finance   
Washington's move to shut off Bank of Dandong from the U.S. financial system punishes a small regional Chinese lender with what U.S. authorities say has been an outsized exposure to North Korea and its banned nuclear and missile programmes. The U.S. Treasury on Thursday accused the bank of facilitating millions of dollars in transactions for companies tied to North Korea's weapons development, as Washington ratchets up pressure on Beijing to rein-in its isolated neighbour and ally. "Bank of Dandong will in effect be shunned by the U.S. banks that may in the past have been used to clear its transactions," said William Newcomb, a former member of the United Nations Panel of Experts on North Korea. "Most international banks will also cease dealing with Bank of Dandong because of reputational risk." "Similarly, other Chinese banks could damage their own ability to clear transactions should they try to act on Bank of Dandong's behalf and be found out," he said, calling the move "an
          U.S. Treasury targets Chinese bank over purported ties to North Korea, new sanctions risk emerges   
The U.S. Treasury Department on Thursday moved to sever a Chinese bank from the global financial system over concerns it was a conduit for illicit North Korean financial activity. The move signaled the United States is no longer willing to tolerate the actions of Chinese entities that support Pyongyang and plans to mete out punishment in the form of financial sanctions to alter behavior, experts said. "I think this is significant, not because of the effects of this singular action, but because it is, I think, the opening salvo of a broader campaign to pressure North Korea through the Chinese financial system. It begins to lay the groundwork for an isolation of Chinese actors that are facilitating illicit North Korean activity," former senior Treasury and White House official Juan Zarate told Thomson Reuters Regulatory Intelligence. Treasury's Financial Crimes Enforcement Network (FinCEN) employed a seldom-used USA Patriot Act Section 311 authority to label the Bank of Dandong an institution

          3D printing could improve mining uptime and productivity   
Forward-thinking mining organisations are realising that industrial-scale, three-dimensional (3D) printing of equipment used in mines could make operations more cost effective and reduce the frustrations of equipment downtime, says information technology consultancy and systems integration firm Wipro South Africa energy and natural resources director Louise Steenekamp. “By 3D printing the spare parts and replaceable components that complex mine machinery requires . . . operators can gain greater control over the supply chain and ensure smooth running of . . . equipment.” She avers that the current methods of producing tooling and components are often time consuming, expensive, wasteful and rely too much on third-party equipment manufacturers. “[Further], mines have to bear the brunt of excess inventory, warehousing and storage costs, as well as the logistical costs of urgently transporting parts.”
          Sofia Coppola’s THE BEGUILED Gripping closing film at Moscow Fest -Review by Quendrith Johnson   

by Quendrith Johnson, Los Angeles Correspondent

There was a time when Sofia Coppola could be at an awards show and overlooked as a famous daughter; not anymore, not for years now since LOST IN TRANSLATION.

But in her new film, THE BEGUILED, which is a retool of a 1971 Clint Eastwood starrer, she really comes of age as a visionary writer/director. Even in what is considered a remake of a movie based on a novel by Thomas Cullinan, it has a distinctive feel that's all hers. The film opens June 23 in New York and LA, wider on June 30.

With an all-star cast that includes Nicole Kidman, Colin Farrell, Kirsten Dunst, and Elle Fanning, you get a sense of why this movie won Best Director at the 2017 Cannes International Film Festival. Picture a Southern all-girls boarding school during the battle-weary Civil War era, and a wounded enemy soldier appears. John McBurney (Colin Farrell) adds testosterone to a very delicate and well-mannered yet highly complex microcosm of women led by a formidable Headmistress named Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman).

KidsBG17

“This is my dream cast,” Sofia Coppola admits. “When I was writing it, I was picturing Nicole as Miss Martha. She always surprises me. Watching her, I’ve never seen anyone like that, she does so many different things at once.” She adds that the whole cast is on a par with Kidman. You want to use a word like confection for the ethereal feel, but that description doesn’t do justice to the depth of rich multi-layered images that float on the screen like Spanish moss.

“This is very much a Sofia film,” Colin Farrell explains. “It’s very much aesthetically beautiful. She wrote every word of this. Her way feels maybe more right than some [as far as directing], there’s an immense lack of tension on the set, very playful. She’s incredibly easygoing and generous to her core it seems.”

Farrell is underscoring the fact that a remake can often feel like a re-do of someone else’s vision. But if you look at the 1971 version, two minutes into the film, Eastwood is literally hitting on a twelve year old, with “not too young for kisses.” And even though the fabulous Geraldine Page stars as his Miss Martha, there’s a creepy feel to their interplay, down the line.

So that’s essentially the breaking point for the 2017 Beguiled. It takes a left turn at the way the heightened sexual tension is framed.

“I didn’t know the movie and I watched it, and it really stayed in my mind. I watched it. It was so weird, and I thought ‘how would I do my version?’” I thought it would be interesting to do the same story but from the female characters' point of view.”

Elle Fanning, who plays Alicia, describes her character as kind of an empowered seductress, but still innocent in a real way. “Anything Sofia does I think is incredible, it was also like, ‘yeah.’ Because it was all these girls and women — and Colin of course— they hold the power.”

“The original film had been made from a guy’s point of view, so I went back to the book. Because I just liked the premise,” Coppola adds. “It’s such a crazy, extreme premise about power between men and women in such an extreme situation. The idea of looking at wartime from the point of view of the women left behind.”

“You try to make it personal. Try to relate to the characters because it’s such a different time. And yet I loved that it had elements that were familiar to me, this feminine beautiful world. A beautiful feminine world with violence and very gothic.”

“My tendency is to be on the subtle side. Colin was teasing me: ‘Oh, this is an action movie to you, there’s guns... there’s blood.’ It’s been fun to have this mix of beautiful dresses and a little gore. We had smoke machines everyday, and candlelight… a really ethereal look that is specific to this story.”

“Colin is a good sport about being our sex object in the movie, but he has to be dangerous and threatening, and romantic in the movie.” Farrell plays a mercenary soldier paid $300 off the boat from Ireland to fight as a Yankee, so he's neither North nor South, but emblematic of the unspoken ever-present struggle for control between the sexes.

When the crushing attractions flare up between Farrell’s character and the many flavors of female in this strange closed world hunkered down  under siege of musket fire in a distance, Beguiled really poses some interesting questions about how women express their sexuality. Yet there’s a brutality to their mannered world that Farrell’s soldier-on-the-mend only begins to realize when it’s too late.

Not that every movie needs a memorable line, but when his John McBurney yells out “You Vengeful Bitches,” in a thick Irish accent, it’s an instant classic. Probably because Nicole Kidman’s Miss Martha is so poised and possibly inherently evil at the same time, in a nice way.

NicBGbad17

Kirsten Dunst, who plays wronged love interest Edwina, sums up Sofia Coppola’s deft directing hand best, as “she doesn’t second guess herself. I’ve known her for so long, I’m working with my friend, you can’t really beat that.”

Since he is outnumbered in this eerie thriller, Colin Farrell gets the last word. “I’m surrounded by extraordinary talent. Watching these extraordinary women do extraordinary work. There’s an amazing sense of camaraderie. It’s been a joy.”

Don’t miss what the women have in store for their wounded houseguest, it’s a very rewarding fight to the finish.

Focus Features awards-buzzworthy film THE BEGUILED rolls out in New York and Los Angeles on Friday, June 23, with wider release on June 30.

          The Writing Process   
Wonderful resources exist to assist students as they work through the writing process. Most of these focus on the first four parts of the process: pre-writing (particularly with regard to concept mapping), drafting, revising (with a growing body of interest focusing on use of technology for editing), and proof-reading. One area that seems to have received little attention is the final part—publishing.

One school, though, has identified and is successfully using methods for teaching and encouraging publishing as a key component of the writing process. Designed and operated by Mrs. Molly Millman, The Alexander Dawson School at Rainbow Mountain (Las Vegas, Nevada) sports a model publishing center. Called the BEAR ("Bringing Exceptional Authors Recognition") program and situated in the school's library, the mission of the publishing center is "to support Dawson student authors, poets, and artists in their quest for independent and collaborative skills necessary to be successful in the next century."

Using a self-designed curriculum, Mrs. Millman teaches content including publishing form, process, resources, authorship, communication, and presentation based on the philosophy: "BEAR Publishing, through collaboration efforts in project design, small and large group instruction, and teacher support, extends and enriches the positive impact of writing and publishing activities."

Though she engages in group instruction in students' classrooms, most publishing occurs in small group settings in the publishing center. After typing their projects during regular class or computer time, students format and add graphics to their projects with Mrs. Millman.


This first graphic shows the method Mrs. Millman uses to organize student projects. Because students progress at different rates, she organizes each class by project and sub-requirement within the project. In this way, she is able to assist students individually.





This second graphic shows an example of a project students completed in their classrooms. In this case, the student wrote and typed a report on Thomas Jefferson. After typing the report, Mrs. Millman taught the student to place a transparent graphic in the background. When it came time to publish a student book, she introduced modifying the text, picture, and page layout to nicely align with the student's selected book size and type.



Students determine the ultimate format for their projects. In most cases, the projects appear in book format—often as anthologies. In some cases, students or classes complete their own books such as poetry anthologies or original stories. They scan their own artwork and add it to student-made content books. For instance, when visiting authors work with students on story development, students create both the text and pictures for an original story and organize their creations to ultimately publish a completed, professional-looking bound book. Other times, publishing accompanies content other than language arts. For example, during a unit on Colonial America, small groups of students design and create a book with sections on each of the different colonies.




One of the key components of each of the books is an author page. Younger students use a template to prepare the content for their author page. Upon publishing their book, all students receive copies to revisit throughout their lives and share with their families.









Before students begin computer work on their projects, they choose the paper color they wish to use on their book cover and for all body pages. The Dawson Publishing Center contains a wide variety of paper qualities and colors. Students also select their book size.







To assist in selecting papers, paper sizes, and fonts, Mrs. Millman provides students with sample options.









In addition, Mrs. Millman provides students with visual models demonstrating margins. This assists them in understanding what is meant by top, bottom, left, and right margins within the context of
their selected paper size.























When it is time for binding, students may use comb or hand binding methods. The Publishing Center has a comb binding machine and wide variety of comb sizes and colors.


If students choose to hand bind their books, Mrs. Millman assists through the process of punching holes (with the help of a self-designed guide showing where the holes should go) and selecting ribbon. She provides them with a sample of a completed book and walks them through the binding and tying process.






At the end of this process, students have mastered myriad computer and publishing skills and have a quality take-home product. She notes that after repeating the process approximately three times, elementary-aged children are able to complete most of these skills independently.

ISTE’s NETS•T Refreshed Roll-Out

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

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

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

Dan Edelson, Getting out of the Classroom with Technology

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

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

Chris Dede, Ubiquitous Computing

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

Cheryl Lemke

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

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

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

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

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Building your muscles and endurance through Weightlifting




No practice regime would be complete without lifting weights. The effects of weight lifting will add muscle to your body and increase strength, this straighten will add to your maximum power. Maximum power is different from strength because it is the power that you exert on the field during a play. It is the quickness and exertion that will enable a football player to accomplish their plays with skill on the field. Weight lifting can cause injuries, and as such we highly recommend having a professional coach on hand during weightlifting sessions. You trainer will also help you accomplish your weightlifting goals and teach you new techniques.




Some fundamentals of ball security




A team that prevents fumbles is a team that wins. Football teams have lost many games because a couple of players were lax in there ball carrying and fumbled the football. A great way to teach tight ball security is with four points. The first point is the claw, meaning that your fingers are wrapped over the tip of the football. The second point is making sure that your forearm is wrapped tightly on the outer rim of the football. The third point is securing the other point of the football with your bicep making sure that it is right up against it. Last point is to hold the back of the football right up against the ribcage and as you run keep it high and tight. As a player, you will want to make sure that you are well practiced in this skill, and as a coach you should dedicate some time to ball carrying skills. As your ball carrying continues to improve you will insure less turnovers and greater success on the field.




How to overpower on the line of scrimmage




In various plays whether you are on offense or defense you will want to have a strategic advantage over your opponents. Use the proven technique of double teaming to get great results on the field!It is basically putting two linemen on one. If you ever need to get a running back through or perform a great blitz, remember this technique. To execute this properly have both linemen step together at the same time and lock their hips together. They form a wall that the opponent cannot break. Hit the shoulders hard and pin the opponent down as you drive them back. Work it fast and work it hard!




The High Toss Football Catch




As a receiver, or any player that is going to catch a pass, you know that not all passes are going to go right to the chest. Here are some simple steps when making a high catch: When you go to make the high catch extend your arms, but keep your hands close together with your hands coming together in a diamond formation. When you try to catch the ball with your body there is a greater chance that it is going to bounce off and cause an incomplete pass. Important Tip: never, ever, under any circumstances, for any reason, take your eyes off the ball; even after you have caught it watch the ball until you know that it is safely in your grips.

          High Volume Abdominal Training & More   
Looking to develop a killer set of abdominals in a very short time? Give this training program a shot. It isn't going to be easy, but you will see abs in under eight weeks. Let's check out the details!




Training




Train your abdominals four times per week, on the same day you're training with weights. This will allow your central nervous system (CNS) to recover on the rest days, and not be troubled with ab training. Start with about ten minutes of crunches, followed by ten minutes of lower ab training. Lying leg raises usually work best. End the day with five minutes of oblique training. The side abdominals are most affected by movements like light dumbbell side crunches or broomstick twists. Twenty-five minutes of abdominal training, four times per week, and you should have your bases covered!




Stretching




Each morning, stretch out your midsection for about five minutes using broomstick twists. Not only will this tighten up your obliques, but it will allow you to break up lactic acid in your entire midsection which has accumulated over the night of sleep following your previous day's workout. No need to break a sweat here just train light and enjoy yourself!




Diet




Cut out unnecessary sugar and fats from your diet. It's okay to eat "normal", but foods such as soda and chocolate really have no place in your dietary regimen if you wish to have a well-defined midsection. It's a simple trade-off. Decide which you like more eating junk or having a terrific set of abs.




Cardio




You might have the best abs in the world, but if your body fat is high (15% or greater), the world will never know. Keep your body fat under 8% by adding 30 minutes of cardio to your routine, four days per week. Train immediately upon waking, before you have consumed any calories even coffee or juice. Never complete cardio on the day before a weight training session of legs, or on the morning of such training.




Water




Often overlooked in the leaning up process, water helps the machine that is your body to function in a much more efficient and effective manner. Drink 8 to 16 cups of water per evening.




Supplements




You can certainly develop a great set of abdominals without taking a single supplement. However, their use can certainly accelerate the process and get your midsection looking better even faster! A commonly used legal supplement is known as ECA. This involves taking 25 mg of ephedrine (commonly sold as Bronkaid), 200 mg of caffeine (available at any grocery store in yellow pill format) and 250 aspirin. Take your ECA stack immediately upon waking in the morning, and again mid-day. Taking it too late in the day may result in an inability to fall asleep in the evening.




Follow these steps and you should have an excellent looking midsection in just eight short weeks. If you fall off track, don't worry. A cheat meal or extended weekend of rest is necessary every now and then. The important part is to immediately return to the gym and your ab training, and get right back on track!

          ROI.EXE has stopped working Dynamics SL 2011   

I ran into an issue where when trying to print invoices through the AP Edit screen we were getting the ROI.EXE has stopped working error.  After doing a fair amount of research on the problem, I stumbled upon a workaround, but would like to know why this fixes the issue.

 

The workaround was to set the windows default printer to the printer in the office that prints the invoices.  Once that change was made in windows, SL was then able to successfully print the invoices we needed.  Inside SL we do not have the option enabled to use the windows default printer enabled, and the printer templates are set up properly. It just seems odd that changing the default printer would fix this irritating issue.

Any suggestions on this would be greatly appreciated, and hopefully someone else finds this helpful.

          Honor 6X and EMUI 5.0: Everything you need to know   
EMUI 5.0 is Huawei's biggest update in recent years. Huawei has been making great hardware for several years now, but the software was always the main drawback. Earlier versions of EMUI were primarily designed for Chinese users, and as such they didn't translate well in Western markets. In particular, the lack of an app drawer was a major feature omission as Huawei looked set to expand its global ambitions. That changed at the end of last year with the introduction of EMUI 5.0. Along with a visual overhaul, the latest iteration of EMUI brings much-needed features aimed at customers in Western markets, key among which is the introduction of the app drawer. You're still looking at a heavily-skinned version of Android, only this time around it actually feels like Huawei put in some effort toward creating a cohesive design aesthetic. The EMUI 5.0 update rolled out to the Honor 6X earlier this year, bringing the new additions to Huawei's budget offering. Let's get started with some of ...

          Primer: Late-Night Lawmaking, Donald Gets on the Twitter Machine, and Other Things You Need to Know Today   
Hey, y’all. Happy Friday, and happy holiday weekend.…
          Backlog Part 1   
Tutto quel casino che ho fatto e alla fine ci sono andata, a vedere l'anniversario di Les Mis all'O2 con Zio Martin.
Che drama queen, che sono..
Ho detto di si perche' se dicevo di no rischiavo che non mi avrebbe mai offerto piu' niente. La logistica del tutto e' stata cotta e mangiata sul momento.

LES MISERABLES 25TH ANNIVERSARY @ O2 (03.10.10)
Mi catapulto ottocento ore prima just in case, e ho fatto bene perche' poi ci ho messo vent'anni a trovare Martin. L'O2 e' bello grosso, e lui da le direzioni peggio di mia madre.
A fatica raggiungo la fine dei ristoranti dove c'e' uno slargo immenso pieno di gente che va e viene (e' appena finita la matinee), siamo al telefono e ci facciamo la simpatica scenetta del 'mi vedi? io non ti vedo, come sei vestito?' e lui fa 'Sono quello che gira in tondo, weeeeee!' e vedo un deficente nel mezzo dello slargo che gira su se stesso a braccia aperte. LOL. Ma lol forte.
Ci corriamo incontro a rallenty come due idioti, mi da i biglietti, veniamo importunati da una vecchietta che voleva sapere dov'era il bagno e ha attaccatto un pippone che non finiva piu', ci salutiamo e passo ore ad aspettare Kat e Vicky (che venivano comunque per fatti loro per vedere Gina Beck) che pensano bene di presentarsi con tutta calma a dieci minuti dall'inizio dello show, perdere una vita intera al cash machine e poi farmi ingozzare per mangiare qualcosa per cena. Il biglietto extra, visto che la Moglie non poteva venire, l'ho dato a Monica che, nonostante avesse da fare nel pomeriggio, e' arrivata con largo anticipo e gia' mangiata. Applauso.
Lo show e' stato..wow.
Tutti bravi tutti belli. Tranne il Jonas Brother che era imbarazzante e ho davvero creduto che gli avessero staccato il microfono, aveva due sputi di fiato. Un cane atroce.
Alfie bravissimo Valjean, Norm FUCKING Lewis immenso Javert (madonna che figone che e'..), Sam Barks, a cui avevo tirato i pomodori quando voleva diventare una Nancy (vi ricordate? Era quella che aveva fatto cambiare il nome della Isle of Mann?), a dir poco incredibile come Eponine, voce pazzesca, l'intero O2 ammutolito.
Il tizio di Little Britain come Thernadier disgustoso il giusto, Earl Carpenter come Bishop (!!), ogni tanto intravedo Jon Robyns nell'ensamble, su nel coro (una masnada di attori del West End in tshirt con sopra Cosette) c'e' gente come Cassie Compton PrettyPretty, Andy Mace, Tracy Bennett, praticamente chiunque sia mai stato in Les Mis..
E alla fine il cast del Barbican, il cast che ha performato or ora e il cast del Queen's, tutti in tiro a cantare One Day More, si separano tipo Mar Rosso e lasciano entrare il Cast Originale del 1985. SANTA MADREDIDDIO. Se ne e' sceso 'o teatro.
Gli hanno fatto fatto fare un pezzo di canzone anche a loro (lol alla Ruffelle che e' partita shaky e sembrava Cindy Lauper e ha concluso la sua strofa spaccando il culo a tutti gli altri con una nota pazzesca..) e gran finalone coi 4 Valjean (l'originale, quello del Queen's, quello del Barbican e Alfie) fanno un bel Bring Him Home in round che ha sciolto tutti. D'aaaawww.

Speech finale di MacKintosh, Boublil e Shoenberg, tutti commossi, tutti mezzi rintronati (c'hanno pure una certa eta'..), bravi tutti. Applausi.


A STREETCAR NAMED DESIRE @ BOLTON (06.10.10, matinee)
Ultima capatina a vedere Streetcar da un'angolazione leggermente diversa, finalmente vediamo piu' della nuca di Boo.
Sempre immensa, sempre un cazzotto allo stomaco. Quando vengono a portare via Blanche c'e' una collutazione, le vogliono mettere la camicia di forza e l'infermiera la sbatte a faccia avanti sul letto, e Boo non fa altro che urlare e piangere e singhiozzare e omfg. Fa un male cane.
Non riusciamo nemmeno a vederla, le lasciamo dei Pan di Stelle alla stage door e andiamo via, un po' meste.

Il 13 e il 20 abbiamo avuto SHERYL CROW, prima all'Hammersmith (dove eravamo sedute davanti a Rachel Tucker, quindi abbiamo bondato in quanto fangirls di Sheryl..) e poi al Dingwalls a Camden. Macello esagerato, talento a pacchi, gnoccaggine acuta (minchia, ha quasi 50 anni. E' una figa inimmaginabile..), ottenuto sia la scaletta che il plettro come da tradizione.

LOVE ON THE DOLE @ BOLTON (15.10.10, matinee)
E ci ritroviamo subito subito sullo stesso treno della Virgin, direzione Manchester.
*sospiro* Play diversa, praticamente stesso cast. Boo stavolta e' sweet e innamorata per i primi due atti, poi la tragedia e diventa un mostro pur di sopravvivere. E Kieran fa il fidanzato tisico che muore alla manifestazione operaia, tanto per cambiare. Sono di un ciccio insieme che mi e' esploso il cuore. Lui e' alto due teste piu' di lei, ad un certo punto le ha messo la propria giacca sulle spalle e l'ha stretta forte e lei e' sparita nell'abbraccio. Oh, my heart. Shippo.
Stavolta la vediamo, la vediamo eccome. Probabilmente e' stato il nostro incontro piu' bello. Nel senso che non sapeva piu' come esprimere quanto era importante il fatto che fossimo venute, e quante insicurezze le abbiamo aiutato a sopprimere, e ad un certo punto si e' tipo lanciata addosso a Manu. Non mi ricordo che le ha detto, ma dev'essere stata la cosa giusta. Abbracci a ripetizione (e gli abbracci di Boo sono..GAH.) baci, strizzate di mano (cioe', ti prende la mano e te la stringe forte..cosi' mentre ci allontaniamo le nostre mani si stanno ancora toccando e rimaniamo ancorate per le dita. Non so se rendo..) e foto perche' quando ci ricapita? Veniamo orrende e la schiacciamo in un crazeball sandwich, ma sti cazzi.
Kieran suggerisce tipo di portarci in macchina alla stazione, noi svicoliamo con maestria perche OMG ti immagini l'awkwardness, e andiamo via sorridendo/piangendo. Come ogni, santa, fottuta, volta. Il sollievo e l'adrenalina si mischiano e mi riducono ad una pozzanghera sul selciato. Ogni volta cerco di descrivere come mi sento, ma e' impossibile. E' complicated. Fate conto che e' piu' o meno come vi sentivate nei confronti della vostra prima cotta. Solo che non passa mai.

AVENUE Q (18.10.10)
Andiamo a vedere Paoletto, e Ave Q che chiude a fine mese, ma in realta' andiamo a parlare di Boo.
Paoletto e' una gran lella, ma ci ama a modo suo. Parliamo di Boo, dei prossimi progetti, di quanto hanno significato lui e Boo per noi in questi 4 anni. Lui ride garrulo. In testa, il vuoto cosmico, ma il cranio e' tappezzato di glitter. Vuoi mettere?
          E' arrivata l'estate! Ma anche no.. (parte seconda)   
Lo so che non c'e' stata ancora una 'parte prima' di questo post, ma arrivera'.
Se e quando mi va di scriverla, ma arrivera'.
Non pretenderete mica che vada in ordine.
Troppo convenzionale.
Come direbbe il Dottor Sheldon Cooper, "What's life without whimsy?".

Nel frattempo, ecco la 'parte seconda':

La cara Sally, dall'Australia con furore ma ora vive in Galles, ci viene a tenere il cane affinche' le vostre eroine (sarebbimo io e la Moglie) possano andare in meritata vacanza.
Mi pare giusto ricambiare il favorone con uno show aggratis, oh yeah.

HAIR (20.05.10, matinee)
Felix, il mio cinesino preferito, ci fa beccare dei biglietti gratis per Hair, e noi ci fiondiamo.
AAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHQQQQQUUuuuaaaanto me piace sto show. Si Si. Me lo rivedrebbi a iosa. Tra l'altro ci sono quattro o cinque canzoni di una bellezza disumana, anche semplicemente fuori contesto dal musical.
E mi scende sempre una lacrimuccia alla fine, devo ammettere...
Ci siamo fatte la solita ballata finale tutti sul palco, foto con Allison (mi sono ricordata la macchinetta, stavolta..) e Sally ha apprezzato. Yay.


(LOL, che manica de scalmanati..leeeeeeet the sun shine iiiiiiin..)



<3

Cena da Viet, gelato da Amorino, passeggiata al sole (VENTISETTE GRADI OMG) e ci viene una voglia improvvisa di morti alle barricate e prostitute tisiche.

LES MISERABLES (20.05.10)
Sally non l'ha mai visto, e' ora che perda la sua Les Miz virginity. Mannaggia che Thaxton non c'era, al suo posto tale Mark Dugdale, che non faceva schifo ma cosi' pischello e sbarazzino, non ci credi nemmeno da lontano che qualcuno lo possa seguire fino alla morte tentando una rivoluzione sociale..
Sally e' rimasta di sasso, e tanto basta.
Zio Martin quasi zompettava quando e' uscito, e' sempre tanto caruccio, dio lo benedica..Sfigato da morire, pero' eh? Si e' lasciato anche con la tipa che lavorava a Wicked..maccheddiamine..Adesso lo iscrivo a sua insaputa su Match.com.
Poi e' corso via perche' avevano West End Eurovision, a cui noi, di nuovo, non siamo andate. Si lo so, non e' da perdere e tutto quello che volete, ma lo show comincia alle 23 e finisce alle 2, a torna' alle 4 del mattino a casa, con le scarpe in mano come una ragazza dell'Essex qualunque, dai..
Non c'ho piu' il fisico.

Quindi per il mio compleanno ce ne partiamo per Bournemouth, dove procediamo a rosolare al sole e ad abboffarci di fish & chips per 3 giorni. Alloggiando in un albergo a tema cioccolato, dove tra una tavoletta intera sul comodino, i marshmallows al cioccolato al checkin, i panckaes al cioccolato la mattina e i Martini al cioccolato al bar, e' un miracolo che non ci sia venuta una scagazza micidiale.
Invece manco pe' gnente.

Faccio in tempo a tornare che si ricomincia:

ALL MY SONS (24.05.10)
Arthur Miller
+ David Suchet (l'ispettore Poirot!! IDOLO)
+ Zoe Wanamaker (CASSANDRA! Il WhoVerse si stringe!)
= AWESOME.
Ah, quanto me piacciono sti drammoni familiari impaccati di segreti micidiali e sorrisi fasulli. Altro che Wysteria Lane, tsk.
Ci siamo spellati le mani a forza di applaudire. Awesome, awesome, awesome.

E ora, un po' di zozzerie televisive! SIGLA! (non vi lamentate, ci voglio mettere una sigla e ce la metto, va bene? Anzi, vi diro' di piu'! LA SIGLA DI BEVERLY HILLS 90210!! TIE'! SIGLAAAAAA!!!)



Prima di tutto, finiamo sta tarantella delle Dorothy che e' diventata pesante:



Ci lasciano Steph (gia' acclamata come la prossima Elphaba..hahahahah, no.) e subito dopo Lauren (meglio cosi', ha un appuntamento col destino sta ragazza, troooooppo brava per essere sprecata in una nefandezza come il Wizard of Oz..), Sophie e Danielle al finalone.
Ora, Sophie e' tanto bellina ed e' rossa ed e' vagamente hot, ma..no. Seriously, no. Non sa recitare, vocalmente e' buona ma non consistente e all in all non e' affatto impressive.
Danielle FTW. Lo dicevo io, al solito, dalla prima puntata. Non sbaglio mai su ste cose.
Non mi aspetto di vedere Wizard prima dell'anno prossimo, anche perche' e' di una noia bestiale, a meno che non ci invitano o che la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen ci faccia avere biglietti aggratis, anche solo in memoria delle gelide mattine che abbiamo passato a giocare a Uno sui gradini dell'Apollo Vic dayqueuando per Wicked..

Poi.

Avrete notato anche voi una tizia grassa col nasone che canta in Glee.
No, non Lea Michele, piu' vecchia.
No, NON BARBRA!
Parlo di una che si spaccia per Idina Menzel.
Be', non e' lei. E' la tizia che ha INGOIATO Idina Menzel.
Non c'e' altra spiegazione.
Altrimenti devo accettare che Addominali D'Acciaio sia diventata la mamma di Dumbo, e non lo posso accettare. Nun ze po'.
Ma pensa te, non poteva adottare qualche sfortunato pargolo nel mondo, come fanno tutti? C'era bisogno di figliare? Swirl (o The Artist Formerly Known As Walker Diggs) gli ha fatto un bel regalo, c'ha a mala pena sei mesi e gia' anni di terapia assicurata..)
Dall'altra parte abbiamo invece Cheno, che non vuole incrociare Idina manco per sbaglio sul set. Ah. Che bei momenti. (also, la ragazza sta sempre male, so' piu' gli show che non fa che quelli che fa..sono seriamente preoccupata..)
E dall'altra parte ancora c'e' Neil Patrick Harris che AWESOME qualunque cosa faccia, soprattutto se canta..soprattutto se lo dirige Joss Whedon.

Insomma, va a finire che 'sto Glee lo finisco a guardare sempre. Che nervi.

Nel frattempo finali di stagione come se piovesse. Bones (meh), 30 Rock (MEGALOL), How I met your mother (eheh), The Big Bang Theory (lulz), NCIS (whut??), Modern Family (OMG I<3U ALL!!) e Legend of the Seeker (oh god, non puo' essere la fine, non puo' essere..*piange*).

Ah, e Lost.
Be', non avete amato/odiato anche voi questo show? Non avete amato/odiato per 6 anni questi personaggi insopportabili su quest'isolaccia maledetta?
Come non amarlo/odiarlo fino alla fine.
Ho soprattutto apprezzato quando la Tartaruga Magica e' uscita dall'acqua al grido di THIS IS SPARTAAAAA e ha dato fuoco a una scureggia di Hurley, radendo al suolo l'intera iso..come dite? Non e' successo questo nel finale di Lost?
No no, e' successo, fidatevi.
E' molto meglio la Tartaruga Magica che quello che e' successo veramente.
Date retta a 'na fessa.
L'unica cosa che voglio ricordare sono Daniel e Charlottina, e Juliet e il suo James. Tutto qui. E vabbe', anche un po' Jack & Kate, ma giusto perche' Evi is SO MUCH LOVE e omg. *piange sommessamente*

Vi lasciamo dunque con l'ultimo Untangled e la canzone piu' epic del mondo, eseguita dai Previously On Lost (lol)



(questa canzone e' cramazing, OMG..)


PS: Mazz ha lasciato Rock You, causa pargolo. E' la fine di un'era.
             
Alle zozzerie non c'e' mai fine, come ben sappiamo.

Cominciamo con quelle televisive! SIGLA!



Ebbene si, altre sfide a colpi di canzoni improbabili, macellazione plurima di successi intramontabili e abuso premeditato di showtunes.
Ci mancano schizzi di sangue e saturazione dei colori e sembra di guardare una puntata di "Spartacus: Blood & Sand".
Invece no, e' solo il Lord che sceglie (rigorosamente a caso, ricordiamoci..) la pulzella che sta settimana non va a casa.

Povere. Loro si sono gia' affezionate, sono gia' BFF&ever, si amano alla follia, sono ormai come sorelle..*notate il mio tono incredulo/sarcastico?*

Fatto sta che, come predetto, la fossette-dotata Dani va a casa perche' diciamocelo, si muove come un facocero ubriaco, la vogliamo davvero mettere nel West End?
No, vero?
Ecco, a casa a calci. (assomiglia anche vagamente a Jesse Buckley grassa, e sappiamo tutti quanto io ami Jesse..BLEURGH..)
Mi sorprende solo che la sua sfidante fosse Danielle, che io do come favorita.
E non la do per favorita perche' conosco la sua insegnante di recitazione Helen (che ha avuto anche il suo stacchettino televisivo! Invece di far vedere la mamma, o che ne so, la famiglia a casa con le magliette fatte a mano che dicono "Danielle for Dorothy" o qualcosa di altrettanto ameno..no! Danielle ha lo stacchettino strappalacrime-casoumano della sua insegnante di recitazione SLASH mentore SLASH mamma chioccia! Se non e' ammmore questo..), la do per favorita perche' effettivamente e' la piu' brava la' dentro.
E non ti fa venire voglia di prenderla a schiaffi, che e' gia' un bel passo avanti.

L'altra volta con le Nancy, Jodie vinse per via della sua personalita' ciociara ed esuberante, vagamente pasticciona e terra terra.
Probabilmente non era la piu' adatta al ruolo, probabilmente non era quella con piu' talento, la sua performance e' obiettivamente piena di cheese e way over the top.
Ma aveva talmente tanta personalita' da traboccare e il pubblico a casa, che di talento non ci capisce un beneamato cazzo ma ha come minimo 6 telefonini dentro casa, vota perche' gli stai simpa. Non perche' hai talento. Basta che sei simpa. Uh, e Jodie era simpa assai.

Qui, a sto giro? Personalita' poca.
E quella che c'e' la vorresti sopprimere a badilate forti.
Quindi spingiamo sul talento e chissa', che sia la volta buona che vince qualcuno che sa VERAMENTE fare il lavoro per cui verra' pagata? (sempre 6 show a settimana, perche' figurati! Il Lord prende gente che non ha la stamina ne' il training e poi va in giro affermando che le sue leading ladies "non si devono rovinare la voce con 8 show a settimana", quindi fanno solo 6 show. Salvo poi farne fare 8 a gente come Kerry Ellis, che pora stronza, ha fatto anche la drama school e anni di gavetta. Se lo poteva evitare, no? visto che basta andare in tv per diventare una 'leading lady'..*sentite il mio tono polemico?*)

Quindi aspettiamo sabato/domenica per vederne fatta fuori un'altra, probabilmente una delle altre due che mi sta sul culo, o Emilie-col-buco-tra-i-denti o Jenny-con-l'acne, di rado sbaglio predizioni..

Nel frattempo, settimana un po' loffia..

GRUMPY OLD WOMEN 2: CHIN UP BRITAIN (20.04.10)
Direttamente dallo show televisivo (e direttamente dal tour nazionale), presentiamo: le Vecchie Brontolone!
Ovvero, tre donne che si lamentano. Di tutto. Non e' che si lamentano, a dirla tutta. Dicono la verita'. E gli uomini in sala non si vogliono sentir dire la verita'.
Non vogliono sapere di menopausa, cicli sballati, ansie da pulizie di casa, rapporti col vicinato/coi figli/con le amiche/col sesso.
Due ore di lamentele serrate. Niente che vostra mamma non faccia quando vi bracca sul divano, mentre lei lava i piatti e voi tentate invano di guardare Gilmore Girls..
A noi donne non sembra altro che l'esposizione della realta' come la conosciamo, solo in a very funny way.
Per gli uomini e' OMG DI CHE COSA STANNO PARLANDO QUESTE!?
Io mi sono squartata. Sono grumpy old woman anche io sa, che vi credete? 30 anni e' piu' che sufficente per diventarlo.
Nel cast la abrasiva Jenny Eclair, che ne dice di tutti i colori e poi ghigna come i bambini che dicono le barzellette sporche di Pierino, la overacting Wendi Peters che fa solo facce brutte e ammazza un po' il testo..e lei, Suzie "Madame Morrible" Blake, adorabile, funny, multitalented e simpatica senza sforzo, si becca le risate piu' grosse per il semplice modo con cui dice le battute, e se le merita.
Punto vero e proprio della serata e' ridare agli uomini la loro spina dorsale, ai britannici la loro britishness e alle donne il loro meritato ruolo da imperatrici del mondo.
Probabilmente non ci riusciranno, ma nel frattempo ci fanno fare un sacco di risate.

ALL THE FUN OF THE FAIR (21.04.10)
Dunque, c'era un tizio di nome David Essex (che mi dicono sia un cantante famoso, io non l'ho mai sentito nemmeno di striscio..), che aveva una giostra itinerante..e c'era suo figlio, un coattello senza talento, e un paio di ensemble inutili dietro, ok? Poi c'era Nicola Brazil (ex ensamble Wicked, ex penosa Sandy in Grease) col vestito rosa da Glinda e le extensions tipo gatto morto in testa, che faceva la figlia del ricco mafioso che si innamora del figlio di David Essex, ok? OK.
Dunque. Poi..Ah si, c'era lo scagnozzo del mafioso che mette a soqquadro la fiera perche'..perche'..boh non mi ricordo, ma deve avere a che fare con la figlia del mafioso col gatto morto in testa..(in testa alla figlia, non al mafioso. Il mafioso era pelato.) C'era una chiaroveggente con un accento molesto e sua figlia (con accento ancora piu' molesto) innamorate rispettivamente del padre/David Essex e del figlio coatto.
Ah, e poi c'e' Shona "gambetta di legno" White, o meglio la tizia che si e' ingoiata Shona, perche' e' diventata il doppio di quello che era..Da standby Elphaba e' finita a vendere i palloncini sullo sfondo, in jeans a dir poco unflattering per una che di culo e' gia' sulla via della richiesta di condono edilizio. Poraccia.
Ogni tanto calano dal soffitto cavalli da carosello e entrano in scena macchine a scontro traballanti (cioe' un triciclo con sopra la scocca di una macchina a scontro) che girano in tondo perche' voglio dire, e' il Garrick eh? Dove cazzo le vuoi far andare..
Insomma partono le canzoni, finiscono le canzoni, ripartono altre canzoni...
Mai sentite. Ma nemmeno per sbaglio. Non so cosa c'entrassero.
Dialoghi..mah, lasciamo perdere.
Poi finisce il primo tempo, noi colleghi ci guardiamo inorriditi e mormorando un 'goodness, would you look at the time? Meglio che vada, c'ho il gatto sul fuoco..' ce la filiamo alla chetichella.
Non sapremo mai come va a finire.
E pensare che hanno osato chiudere un capolavoro come Zorro. Tsk.

Mamma mia che zozzeria.


Che altro?

La Roma e' prima in classifica.

Idina e' apparsa in Glee, come la madonna, ancora un po' pienotta dalla gravidanza.

Sta nuvola del piffero se ne sta sfanculando verso il Mare del Nord, quindi possiamo tornare alle nostre vite..c'ho un amico bloccato in Cina che forse rientra tra due giorni, i Whingers sono bloccati a NYC (poracci, ve'?), John Owen Jones e' ormai di casa a Sharm El Sheik e non ha fatto in tempo a tornare per la apertura del Tour di Les Mis a Edinburgo (aggiungerei: LOL), Paul e' quasi gia' in volo per la Florida per il matrimonio di cui e' Testimone e per cui stava sclerando da una settimana..e io mi faccio un quattro giorni a Roma di meritato riposo, e vaffanculo. Ma non voglio fare niente di niente di niente di NIENTE. Voglio mangiare i piatti di mamma, voglio dormire, farmi comprare roba dai parenti e prendere un po' di sole.

Non mi dovrei lamentare, siamo stati graziati da un paio di settimane di sole e cielo limpido, ma fa un cazzo di freddo, eccheddiamine..Ho messo via guanti e sciarpe, mi rifiuto di tirarle fuori di nuovo, ecco. *e fu cosi', bambini, che mi beccai la polmonite..*

Siamo ancora un po' nervosetti, direi che un po' di vacanza fa bene a tutti.
          I have of late, but wherefore I know not, lost all my mirth..   
Prima sventagliata di shows aggratis.

MAMMA MIA! (14.04.10)
Mi raccomando, con il punto esclamativo.
Io lo ribattezzerei in MAMMA MIA CHEMMERDA!, but that's just me.
Da non-fan degli Abba che sa tutte le canzoni a memoria (HOW?!), potete anche immaginare perche' finora ho evitato questo show come si evita un appuntamento dal dentista. (sono due, questo e Blood Brothers, che non vedrei nemmeno trascinata di peso..)
Ebbene si, sono stata trascinata di peso. I biglietti gratis sono sempre un gran incentivo.
Nemmeno la soddisfazione di vedere Linzi Hateley, che ha pensato bene di andare in vacanza. La tizia che abbiamo visto come Donna mi pare si chiami Sara West, non era impressive, soprattutto dopo che hai sentito Carolee Carmello che ha due polmoni d'acciaio inossidabile e questo ruolo se lo mangia a colazione, ma se mai trasferiscono In The Heights, OMG e' tipo perfetta per Abuela Claudia.

La nostra Sophie e' la bellina Jesse May (che ha un nome da boondocks, ma e' biondina e bellina assai..), che ci rende difficile il connettere che Julie, una volta, faceva questo ruolo. OMG. (e Paul era u/s Skye nel Tour internazionale, ma vabbe', meglio lasciar perdere le mie opinioni su Paul in un qualunque ruolo etero..)

Zio Martin faceva uno dei tre papa', non mi ricordo nemmeno quale, ma ringrazio solo il cielo che non lo conoscevamo all'epoca. Anzi, ringraziamo il cielo che non conosciamo nessuno in questo cast, nemmeno di striscio. (si c'e' una di Zorro che riconosco in quanto somiglia a Zooey Deschanel, ma chi ci ha mai parlato..)

Rosie e Tanya dimenticabili, Ali e Lisa peggio ancora, le canzoni spinte dentro a forza come in un macina carne anche quando non c'entrano un'emerita mazza, ad un ritmo di tre battute/canzone/due battute/canzone. Alcune sono veramente WTF, tipo Name of the Game, che da una normale situazione lei/lui diventa forzatamente figlia/padre e oddio e' di un incestuoso da far venire la pelle d'oca..

Menzione speciale a Skye, che in quanto a personaggio e' piu' inutile di Fiyero (ed e' dire tanto), non fa un cazzo e ha, letteralmente, mezza canzone da cantare.

Lo show, dopo gags deprimenti e un po' di parolacce buttate li' a caso, finisce con un plot twist matrimoniale e una luna gigantesca che spunta dal monte dal mare.
Non ho fatto in tempo a dirmi 'meh, che finale mesto per uno show cosi'..' che, bieco trucco per mandare le masse a casa felici, parte un assordante megamix.
No, nemmeno un megamix, ma semplicemente tre canzoni degli ABBA a caso, mi pare Super Trouper, Waterloo e Mamma Mia. I turisti escono ballando e canticchiando, quindi missione compiuta.
Io barcollo fuori dal Prince of Wales piuttosto provata, e mi congratulo del fatto che non sono le 3 di notte e gli ushers non ci stanno spintonando fuori, come succede di solito quando andiamo ai cabaret dei Hannah alla Delfont Room.

Questo show ha anche un fottio di produzioni in giro allo stesso momento. C'e' Londra, New York, Oslo e Mexico City..e poi il Tour Americano, il Tour internazionale, il Tour Australiano, il Tour Spagnolo, il Tour Olandese..
Non oso immaginare il volume di soldi che generano.
Immagino una roba tipo Benny e Björn che sguazzano nei soldi nel loro forziere a Goflurbändefråppa, o dove cazzo abitano..

HAIR (15.04.10)
Il giorno dopo ci invitano a ballare con la Tribu', e noi andiamo.
Non c'e' modo di spiegare Hair, non ha plot, forse nemmeno un senso.
La maggior parte dello show sono loro, i personaggi, che ti raccontano chi sono, in cosa credono, cosa li fa incazzare, e cosa sognano, e dove vanno quando si fanno un viaggio con l'LSD.
E poi c'e' Claude, che non vuole morire in Viet Nam ma non sa come chi/cosa/dove e' e come uscirne fuori. Vuole restare a New York ad aspettare la neve. Vuole restare e amare Sheila e Berger e i suoi brothers & sisters.
Claude vuole solo essere invisibile.

La Tribu' scende in sala e ti viene a parlare, a toccare, a baciare, a rubare la coca cola, a sederti vicino, ad abbracciarti, a portarti margherite bianche, a salire sui sedili in bilico sui braccioli.
Si spogliano completamente, letteralmente e metaforicamente. Si denudano su quel palco perche' tu li veda, perche' their eyes are open e vogliono che lo siano anche i tuoi.
E dopo aver conosciutoamatoadorato la Tribu', lo show finisce.
E tu rimani con questa energia dentro, con questo fuoco che ti hanno accesso, ti ribolle dentro, la standing ovation alla fine non e' abbastanza, vuoi di piu', devi liberarla ora, subito.

Ed e' li' che la Tribu' ti chiama sul palco.
Vai su, 200 persone controllate dagli ushers coi clickers, non di piu' senno' la health & safety se ne va a farsi benedire.
E a te non te ne importa un cazzo della H&S e dei corrimano messi su all'ultimo secondo, perche' Allison Case con un sorriso a 35mila denti ti sta aiutando su per i gradini e ti accoglie sfiorandoti lieve e c'e' da cantare Let the Sun Shine In tutti insieme, e dove mi giro trovo gente che conosco, Charlotte e Perry che non vedo da una vita OMG che cazzo ci fate qui e Sabrina e Jon che si dimenano e tutto il Gielgud che ti guarda e i riflettori ti accecano e fa un caldo pazzesco e tutti ondeggiano e lasciano entrare il sole e dietro ho Megan Reinking che mi canta nell'orecchio e quando mi giro a fine canzone (minchia che bella che e'..) ci battiamo il cinque (anzi il dieci) e tutti ti sfiorano le braccia e tu che gli dici well done e loro che ti ringraziano per essere venuta, e scendi giu' con le gambe che ti tremano, maledicendo la poca prontezza di riflessi nell'agguantare una macchinetta fotografica prima di salire.
Due giorni dopo e sono ancora drogata di flower power.

Il cast e' stato trasferito in blocco da Broadway, e si vede che si stanno godendo l'attimo. Sono giovani e belli e in gita scolastica tutto pagato, che je frega..
Per una botta di culo pazzesca abbiamo avuto Phyre Hawkins come Dionne (che si e' cantata the shit out of it) e Holly (ex Dynamite di Hairspray) come swing, unica rappresentate UK on stage, oh yeah.
Will Swenson e' uno schizzato e confuso Berger, ma e' incredibilmente gentile e pacato di persona, mi aspettavo un cazzone sciupafemmine e invece e' educato come un principino.
Gavin Creel ha uno status da semidio da queste parti, quindi vabbe'..un po' cafone di persona, troppo occupato al telefono per firmare autografi ai poveri derelitti alla stage door, apparentemente..(io non me lo cago comunque, ho altri interessi..)
Le ragazze mi hanno conquistata. Caissie Levy e' una splendida SheilaFranklynsecondsemesterNYU, Megan Reinking e' rossa e sexy da morire e molto alla mano, Kacie Sheik (Jeanie) e' incredibile e sembra una persona interessantissima..
Ma la mia preferita e' Allison. D'uh, aggiungerei.
E' adorabile, e' brava, e' rossa ed e' gay (tipo l'unica lesbica out in tutta broadway, se non sbaglio..). Ci manca solo che abbia la pelle al gusto di fragola, poi e' perfetta.
Ci siamo coccolate un po', fatte una foto scema, discusso su quanto fossi orrenda nella foto ('Sembro un'idiota!', 'Ma noo, non e' vero..', 'Ma si guarda, sembro un'idiota!', 'Ma noooo..'), arrivata a casa la aggiungo su Feisbuk, lei mi riaggiunge dopo un minuto e mi va a commentare la nostra foto insieme, che come tag ha 'Sembro un'idiota', con un: 'Ma no che non sembri un'idiota!'.
STRALOL. La amo.

Giudicate voi, sembro decisamente un'idiota..



AVENUE Q (17.04.10)
Ultimo giorno utile per vedere Rachel come Kate/Lucy che sostituisce CJ in vacanza, quindi andiamo anche se sono stanchissima. Vengono anche Cath e Sarah, tanto per.
Quanto e' bellina. Non hot, ma bellina. Mi ricorda sempre Gabrielle di Xena. E' come una goccia di sole, sorridente e adorabile. Egualmente forti sia la sua Kate che la sua Lucy.
Paul mi piace ancora molto, Princeton e' ok, ma il suo Rod e' la mia anima gemella. Lo voglio sposare.
E' tornata Jacqui-col-porro-in-fronte a coprire provvisoriamente la track di Clare, Alan Pearson copre Tom malato come Trekkie/Nicky, e Sion lavora bene con Jacqueline nella coppia Brian/Christmas Eve.
Alla fine andiamo a salutare Paul, che l'unica volta che non l'abbiamo fatto ci ha detto parole, e tra una ciaccola e l'altra trovo le palle per chiedergli di Clare.

La prima cosa che ha detto e' stata 'Si, non sta passando un bel periodo..', spezzandomi il cuore. Dice che ci passano tutti, che sta un po' giu'. Dice che sta facendo una cosa al Sadler's Wells di domenica, una riesumazione di musical sconosciuti, e pensa che le fara' sicuramente piacere vederci.
Tornate a casa ci rendiamo conto che e' sold out, ovviamente, ma tenteremo il tutto per tutto.
Meglio essere venuta a saperlo da lui in tempo, che tra due o tre mesi quando il cazzo di Google Alert si decide a funzionare.

In leggero stato di panico, mi appresto ad affrontare la prossima sventagliata di show.

Ho anche guai a lavoro, se non mi viene un'ulcera sta botta, non so davvero quando.


PS: Simon, non si sa grazie a quale santo, si e' beccato il Tour di Spamalot. Non sappiamo in che ruolo. Ci tocchera' fare di nuovo un giretto a Bromley st'estate, me sa..

          Intelligent Design + Darwinian Evolution = Dead End   
By casting nature in the role of machinery, the notion of Intelligent Design (ID) shows itself to be an anthropomorphizing tool. The designer-artifact lens through which IDers see nature projects onto nature the general shape of the human-artifact relationship. ID anthropomorphizes the supernatural, by making deity out to be a kind of super tinkerer, thereby, I suppose, filling theists with a feeling of familiarity with the divine, even if the tinkerer lacks eyes, hands, etc. 

And . . .

By casting physical nature in the role of de-novo miracle, science shows itself to be a religious tool. The occurred-by-fiat lens through which scientists see natural law projects onto nature the general shape of the human-deity relationship. Science sanctifies the natural, by making physical laws out to be a kind of super miracle, thereby, I suppose, filling atheists with a feeling of familiarity with the divine, even if nature lacks mind, soul, etc.

          Pengenalan Komunikasi Data   
Pada dasarnya komunikasi data merupakan proses pengiriman informasi diantara dua itik menggunakan kode biner melewati saluran transmisi dan peralatan switching, bisa antara komputer dan komputer, komputer dengan terminal, atau komputer dengan peralatan, atau peratalan dengan peralatan.

Awal tahun 1980 menjadi tonggak revolusi komunikasi data yang menjadikan jaringan komputer global sebagai media komunikasi yang kemudian berkembang pesat. Komputer di rumah dapat dihubungkan dengan internet untuk berkomunikasi dan mencari informasi ke seluruh dunia tanpa perlu pergi ke kantor pos atau perpustakaan, electronic-teller-machine dapat membantu agar para nasabah bank leluasa bertransaksi dimanapun tempatnya tanpa repot pergi ke kantor bank, dan banyak lagi contoh lainnya.

Komputer dan peralatan pendukungnya pada dewasa ini telah menjadi sarana komunikasi yang cukup efisien dengan kemampuan pengolah data yang paling luas penggunaannya, maka tidak ada bentuk informasi yang tidak dapat ditangani oleh komputer beserta perlengkapannya.

Oleh karena itu sarana telekomunikasi dewasa ini akan mengarah kepada komunikasi data dengan komputer sebagai peran sentral, suatu saat komunikasi data dapat menggantikan sarana komunikasi konvensional yang ada saat ini.

Bentuk Komunikasi Elektronik

1. Komunikasi Suara
2. Komunikasi Berita dan Gambar
3. Komunikasi Data

Cara Melakukan Komunikasi Elektronik
 
1. Komunikasi suara 
Komunikasi suara merupakan bentuk komunikasi yang umum. Beberapa cara yang telah dikembangkan jangkauannya dapat meliputi hampir semua tempat didunia. Beberapa cara melakukan komunikasi yang dikenal secara umum adalah :
Komunikasi Radio Siaran

Informasi dipancarkan kesegala arah, bersifat umum, jangkauannya tergantung daya pancar serta ijinnya. Contoh : Radio RRI.

Komunikasi Radio Amatir

Informasi dipancarkan kesegala arah tetapi jumlah pengirim dan penerima informasi terbatas, sifat informasi bersifat pribadi. Contoh : ORARI.
Gambar 1.2 Komunikasi Radio Amatir

Komunikasi Radio Panggil

Digunakan untuk memanggil penerima yang menjadi pelanggan pengirim. Jarak jangkau terbatas. Contoh : Pager. Jangkauannya paling luas. Contoh : Telepon Dial, Hand-phone.
 
2. Komunikasi berita dan gambar 
Telegraf, telex, facsimile, siaran TV

3. Komunikasi data 
Jaringan Umum (public network)
Jaringan pribadi (private network)

Pengertian Komunikasi Data, Telekomunikasi dan Pengolahan Data Komunikasi data merupakan gabungan dari teknik telekomunikasi dengan teknik pengolahan data.

• Telekomunikasi adalah segala kegiatan yang berhubungan dengan penyaluran informasi dari titik ke titik yang lain;
• Pengolahan data adalah segala kegiatan yang berhubungan dengan pengolahan data;
• Gabungan kedua tehnik ini selain disebut dengan komunikasi data juga disebut dengan teleprocessing (pengolahan jarak jauh);
• Secara umum komunikasi data dapat dikatakan sebagai proses pengiriman informasi (data) yang telah diubah dalam suatu kodetertentu yang telah disepakati melalui media listrik atau elektro-optik dari titik ke titik yang lain;
• Sistem komunikasi data adalah jaringan fisik dan fungsi yang dapat mengakses komputer untuk mendapatkan fasilitas seperti menjalankan program, mengakses basis data, melakukan komunikasi dengan operator lain, sedemikian rupa sehingga semua fasilitas berada pada terminalnya walaupun secara fisik berada pada lokasi yang terpisah.

Pemikiran Dalam Komunikasi Data

• Menyalurkan informasi secepat mungkin dengan kesalahan sedikit mungkin;
• Mengintegrasikan semua jenis komunikasi menjadi satu sistem, yaitu ISDN (Integrated Service Digital Network ) atau Jaringan Digital Pelayanan Terpadu;

Keuntungan Komunikasi Data

• Pengumpulan dan persiapan data Bila pada saat pengumpulan data digunakan suatu terminal cerdas maka waktu untuk pengumpulan data dapat dikurangi sehingga dapat mempercepat proses (menghemat waktu).
• Pengolahan data Karena komputer langsung mengolah data yang masuk dari saluran transmisi (efesiensi).
• Distribusi Dengan adanya saluran transmisi hasil dapat langsung dikirim kepada pemakai yang memerlukannya.

Tujuan Komunikasi Data

• Memungkinkan pengiriman data dalam jumlah besar efesien, tanpa kesalahan dan ekonomis dari suatu tempat ketempat yang lain;
• Memungkinkan penggunaan sistem komputer dan peralatan pendukung dari jarak jauh (remote computer use);
• Memungkinkan penggunaan komputer secara terpusat maupun secara tersebar sehingga mendukung manajemen dalam hal kontrol, baik desentralisasi maupun sentralisasi;
• Mempermudah kemungkinan pengelolaan dan pengaturan data yang ada dalam berbagai macam sistem komputer;
• Mengurangi waktu untuk pengolahan data;
• Mendapatkan data langsung dari sumbernya (mempertinggi kehandalan);
• Mempercepat penyebarluasan informasi.

Faktor -faktor pertimbangan Komunikasi Data

• Pengsinyalan Pengsinyalan (signalling) adalah suatu prosedur atau protokol yang harus dilaksanakan terlebih dahulu sebelum pengiriman informasi dimulai.
• Transmisi Media transmisi harus efesien dan dapat melayani berbagai jenis alat. Karakteristik transmisi :
-lebar frekuennsi yang dapat ditampung -redaman
-daya yang dapat ditampung -waktu yang dibutuhkan
• Cara Penomoran Penomoran harus unik dan mengikuti rekomendasi atau persetujuan dari pihak tertentu.
• Cara menyalurkan hubungan (routing) Menentukan policy ( kebijaksanaan ) bagaimana suatu hubungan akan dilaksanakan.
• Cara menghitung biaya (tarif) Menentukan struktur harga bagi jasa pelayanan yang harus dibayarkan.

Bidang-bidang Operasi Komunikasi Data

• Bidang Data Collection Data dapat dikumpulkan dari beberapa tempat (remote station), disimpan dalam memori dan pada waktu -waktu tertentu data tersebut akan diolah. Contoh : aplikasi inventori, penggajian, dll.

• Bidang Inquiry and Response Pemakai dapat mengakses langsung ke file atau program. Data yang didikirimkan ke sistem Komputer dapat langsung diproses dan hasilnya dapat segera diberikan. Bila pemakai melakukan dialog dengan komputer maka sistem semacam ini disebut interaktif. Contoh : aplikasi perbankan, pembayaran dipertokoan.

• Bidang Storage and Retrival Data yang sebelumnya disimpan dalam komputer dapat diambil sewaktu -waktu oleh pihak yang berkepentingan. Contoh : aplikasi Message Switcing dan E-Mail.

• Bidang Time Sharing Sejumlah pemakai dapat mengerjakan programnya secara bersama-sama. Setiap pemakai diberikan kesempatan untuk bekerja selama jangka waktu tertentu yang tetap besarnya, setelah itu pemakai lain akan mendapatkan kesempatan.

Kalau terlalu banyak data yang harus dikerjakan dalam satu satuan waktu fasilitas roll in-roll out harus dipergunakan. Contoh : aplikasi pemakai sistem komputer secara bersama untuk pengembangan perangkat lunak (software), perhitungan, rekayasa, pengolah kata (word processing), CAD (computer aided design), dan sebagainya.

• Bidang Remote Job Entry Remote Job terminal mengirimkan program atau data (teks) untuk disimpan ke komputer pusat tempat data diproses. Program itu akan dikerjakan secara batch, yaitu diolah setelah gilirannya tiba. Contoh : aplikasi yang menggunakan peralatan sistem komputer yang tempatnya berjauhan.

• Bidang Real Time Data Processing and Process Control Hasil proses dikehendaki dalam waktu yang sesuai dengan kepentingan proses tersebut (real time). Contoh : aplikasi pengaturan peralatan industri, sistem kendali proses, sistem telekomunikasi, dsb.

          MASTER BOX #35109 - British Infantry Weapons   
British Infantry Weapons WWII era Вступление Хочу представить вниманию уважаемой публики обзор вышедшего недавно набора от днепропетровской компании Master Box – оружие британской пехоты времён Второй Мировой войны. Литник с деталями упакован в небольшую картонную коробку. На лицевой стороне изображены все образцы оружия присутствующие в наборе, а на обратной – инструкция по сборке и окраске, а также схема литника с нумерацией деталей. Детали отлиты из серого пластика, качество которого не вызывает нареканий – обрабатывается без проблем. Ни облоя, ни недоливов на оружии обнаружено не было. Лишь одна небольшая утяжина была обнаружена на пулемёте Vickers MK I. По периметру деталей присутствует шов от стыка пресс-форм, но он легко удаляется острым ножом. Детали Vickers MK I Medium Machine Gun Производитель даёт возможность собрать Викерс MK I на треноге. В комплекте к Викерсу идут две треноги разной высоты, короб с патронами (можно собрать и открытым, и закрытым), канистра для охлаждения и пулемётная лента. Lewis Light Machine Gun Легкий пулемёт, разработанный в 1911 году и выпускавшийся до 1942го года. MasterBox позаботился о моделистах и кожух ствола сделал с углублением. Bren MK I Первый лёгкий пулемёт семейства Bren. MK I сменил устаревший Lewis. В различных модификациях выпускался аж до 1991 года. Boys anti-tank rifle Базовая модификация противотанкового ружья с Т-образной сошкой и круглым дульным тормозом. Всего было выпущено 60 тысяч штук, применявшихся с 37-го года вплоть до середины 60-х. PIAT Ручной противотанковый гранатомёт, количество выпущенных единиц которого составляет 115 тысяч. Отлит одной деталью – «бери и стреляй». Пистолет-пулемёты Sten Пять Sten’ов и пять магазинов к ним. Отлиты очень хорошо. Но есть одно «но» – у двух из них(MK III и MK V) были приклады каркасного типа, а на литниках мы видим что они не полые. Издержки технологии. . . Винтовки Lee-Enfield В наборе присутствуют четыре легендарные винтовки британской армии – Lee-Enfield no 1 MK I, MK III и две no 4 MK 1. Винтовки no 1 MK I и одна из 4 MK 1 оснащены штыками. Плюс каски и револьвер Плюс ко всему вышеперечисленному, неохваченными остались шесть касок и револьвер Enfield MK 2 (на фото выше). Заключение Набор оставляет довольно хорошее впечатление и, несомненно, будет полезен диорамостроителям. Единственное, чего, на мой взгляд, не хватает набору – это боеприпасы к оружию. Пара дисков к Льюису, магазины Брену и заряды для ПИАТа были бы очень кстати. Набор предоставлен компанией Обзор Дениса Стогния.

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

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

          Inexcusable Employee Behavior   

I've actually had very positive experiences with BART in general, I started a new job and am now doing the daily commute from the East Bay to SF and haven't had problems so far. That being said, this morning while trying to pay for my parking stall, the machine kept telling me to "see agent", so I did, and asked the woman in the glass office for assistance. She told me I didn't have enough money on my ticket, but since it was displaying $15 I showed some confusion, and simply asked for clarification. At this point she was very snippy with me and told me that's just how it was (granted I'm a newbie and can still make dumb moves, I'm the first to admit it) but this woman's anger proceeded to escalate far beyond necessary levels, and at one point she called me an "idiot for not comprehending anything she was saying", and that this conversation was over and she would no longer assist me. I was flabbergasted. This was after I'd asked how I could reload my ticket in order to pay for parking, since I was being told by every machine that I could NOT reload this particular ticket. I'm not blaming the error on BART, I'm sure if I were more experienced I'd known what to do and where my mistake was, but this woman's behavior toward me was inexcusable. To name-call a paying rider, calling me "stupid" and an "idiot", made my jaw drop. Once I'd finally managed to reload my card, I came back around to her office and politely asked what her name was. She did not look up nor acknowledge me, and when I asked, "you're not going to give me your name?" she laughed. At that point I said thank you and went on my way.

          US blacklists China bank, revving up pressure over North Korea   
WASHINGTON — The United States has blacklisted a small Chinese bank accused of illicit dealings with North Korea, escalating the pressure on Beijing to rein in its wayward ally amid increased signs of frustration among President Donald Trump and his top advisers with China's diplomatic efforts.

The Treasury Department on Thursday declared the Bank of Dandong a "primary money-laundering concern," proposing to sever it entirely from the U.S. financial system, pending a 60-day review period. Although Trump's treasury secretary said the move didn't target China, it comes a week after the president lamented that China's promise to help with North Korea "has not worked out."

Calls to Bank of Dandong rang unanswered on Friday. Beijing, however, criticized Washington's action, saying that unilateral sanctions outside the U.N. Security Council were inappropriate.

"We also firmly oppose any individual country to exercise long-arm jurisdiction under its own domestic law," said Lu Kang, spokesman for China's foreign ministry.

Lu added that Beijing will investigate possible wrongdoings by Chinese individuals and entities under Chinese laws.

Trump had been leaning on President Xi Jinping to help stop the North's development of nuclear weapons before they can threaten the U.S. homeland. A main focus of the coordination has been getting China to fully enforce international sanctions intended to starve North Korea of revenue for its nuclear and missile programs.

The U.S. action is likely to anger China, which handles about 90 percent of North Korea's external trade, and whose banks and companies are said to provide Pyongyang access to the U.S.-dominated international financial system.

The sanctions bar Americans from doing business with Bank of Dandong, which is based in a northeastern Chinese city on the North Korean border that serves as a gateway for trade with the isolated nation. The U.S. also slapped sanctions Thursday on a Chinese shipping company and two Chinese people that it said have facilitated illegal activities by North Korea.

Treasury Secretary Steve Mnuchin said the U.S. still wants to work with Beijing on combating the North Korean threat.

"We are in no way targeting China with these actions," Mnuchin told a White House news briefing.

The punitive steps were presaged by a tweet from Trump last week reflecting dissatisfaction with Beijing's efforts.

"While I greatly appreciate the efforts of President Xi & China to help with North Korea, it has not worked out. At least I know China tried!" Trump tweeted on June 20.

The Trump administration may be struggling to maintain international pressure on Pyongyang.

The president was to meet for the first time Thursday with South Korea's new leader, President Moon Jae-in, who has long advocated outreach to North Korea. His predecessor had staunchly backed Trump's harder line.

Mnuchin said the Bank of Dandong has facilitated millions of dollars of transactions for companies involved in North Korea's weapons of mass destruction and ballistic missile programs.

Anthony Ruggiero, a sanctions expert and former Treasury Department official, described it as a small Chinese bank "sitting at the heart" of trade between North Korea and China.

"This is a strong message to Chinese leaders that the Trump administration will act against North Korea's sanctions evasion in China," he said.

The other targeted Chinese entities are:

—Dalian Global Unity Shipping Co., which Treasury accused of transporting 700,000 tons of freight annually, including coal and steel products, between China and North Korea. It cited a U.N. expert panel as saying the company has violated a ban on trade in luxury goods with the North.

—Chinese national Sun Wei, said to have been running a cover company for North Korea's Foreign Trade Bank, which is already subject to U.S. sanctions.

—Chinese national Li Hong Ri, said to have established several front companies that end up benefiting Koryo Bank, a U.S.-sanctioned conduct for financial transactions on behalf of North Korea.

          Italian restaurant to replace Stingerz Bar and Grill in Harvard   
HARVARD – Harvard residents will have a new place to eat an Italian meal and grab a drink when Bunks Place replaces Stingerz Bar and Grill in Harvard.

Restaurateur Ward Green along with business partners Brandon Green and Stephen Polizzi plan to transform the sports bar into a family-friendly Italian restaurant and bar that will serve basic cuisine such as pizzas, pastas, burgers and sandwiches.

Green and his partners have been in the restaurant business for about 50 years and have owned four other restaurants, Green said.

“We take this very seriously and try to put out our best, consistent service and product,” he said. “We are looking to be an everybody-matters type of establishment for Harvard residents and their families.”

The restaurant will be closed for about a month while the team moves in equipment, puts a prep kitchen in the basement and completes minor renovations. The bar space and video gambling machines will stay, but Green said he didn't want those to be the main focus of the restaurant experience.

Green said that he has heard positive things about his plan for the space and was ready to jump in to the Harvard business community.

“If everything goes the way the public says, Harvard is on the verge of growth,” he said. “I am not coming in to hurt [other businesses.] I just want to be a part of that community.”

Mayor Mike Kelly said he was proud the city was starting to see investment, from Bunks Place, to the proposed Culver's, to Dollar General.

“We have some things to hang our hat on,” he said. “And that hasn’t happened in a long time.”
