Hollywood is a city in Broward County, Florida, located between Fort Lauderdale and Miami. The average temperature is between 68 and 83 degrees. As of July 1, 2015 Hollywood has a population of 149,728. Founded in 1925, the city grew rapidly in the 1950s and 1960s, and is now the twelfth largest city in Florida. Hollywood is a principal city of the Miami metropolitan area, which was home to an estimated 6,012,331 people at the 2015 census.
Joseph W. Young founded the city in 1925. He dreamed of building a motion picture colony on the East Coast of the United States and named the town after Hollywood, California. Young bought up thousands of acres of land around 1920, and named his new town "Hollywood by the Sea" to distinguish it from his other real estate venture, "Hollywood in the Hills", in New York
Young had a vision of having lakes, golf courses, a luxury beach hotel, country clubs, and a main street, Hollywood Boulevard. After the 1926 Miami hurricane, Hollywood was severely damaged; local newspapers reported that Hollywood was second only to Miami in losses from the storm. Following upon Young's death in 1934, the city encountered more terrific hurricanes and not only that, but the stock market crashed with personal financial misfortunes. It felt as though the city was tumbling slowly piece by piece with all of those tragic events taking place.
Hollywood is a planned city. On Hollywood Boulevard is the Mediterranean-style Joseph Young Mansion, built around 1921, making it one of the oldest houses in Hollywood.
WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Two television hosts assailed by Donald Trump questioned his mental health on Friday and charged that the White House had tried unsuccessfully to get them to apologize to the president for unfavorable coverage in exchange for his getting a negative tabloid story about them killed.
Section 4B1.2(a)(2) of the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines is identical to statutory language that the U.S. Supreme Court found to be unconstitutionally vague in Johnson v. United States. The panel in this case held that, although 4B1.2(a)(2) is identical to the language from Johnson, it is not unconstitutionally vague because the vagueness doctrine does not apply to the now-advisory Federal Sentencing Guidelines. This brief explains why the panel decision is inconsistent with Supreme Court decisions on the vagueness doctrine and the Sentencing Guidelines.

It is no secret that working as a mechanic is a difficult occupation that requires strenuous labor. Doing repairs on heavy vehicles and putting constant strain on their muscles and back are all things that workers face every day. However, there are some less obvious health risks associated with this type of job. Exposure to Carbon Monoxide Running vehicles produce a gas called carbon monoxide, and in shops that are not well-ventilated, this can prove deadly to mechanics. Furthermore, the gas is both odorless and tasteless, and toxic levels of it may be impossible to detect until workers are already presenting with physical symptoms. Eye InjuriesThose who work in body shops or are more at risk for eye injuries because they work with many small, metal parts. Parts may fly off and unexpectedly become lodged in a worker's eye if they are not wearing safety glasses. Bench grinders are well- known for launching pieces of metal with some regularity. Approximately 7% of all workplace hazards to mechanics are eye injuries. Hearing Loss Regular exposure to loud noises, especially in enclosed spaces such as a repair shop, can cause devastating effects to hearing function. Hearing loss due to car horns, power tools, grinders, and other equipment is sometimes irreversible. Like damage to vision, hearing loss does, in some cases, get worse over time. Experts say that noise levels over 90 decibels is harmful to the ears and should be avoided by wearing proper hearing protection. Asbestos ExposureMechanics often risk exposure to asbestos in the workplace. When replacing the clutch or break, sanding and grinding occurs and sometimes creates asbestos dust, which is extremely difficult to avoid breathing. There are many dangers related to being exposed to asbestos for long periods of time, and doing so can cause life-threatening pulmonary diseases and even a deadly type of cancer called mesothelioma. Exposure to ChemicalsThere are a variety of volatile chemicals in repair shops that cause injuries to the mechanics working in them. Regular exposure to degreasers, solvents, and oil can cause skin burns, irritation to the lining of the lungs, and eye damage. A skin condition called hand dermatitis is commonly found in patients who work in auto body shops and is the result of regular exposure to various chemicals. While these problems have the potential to be quite serious, the likelihood of them occurring can be drastically decreased by using proper safety gear and adhering to all health and safety regulations.

Die Schwüle des Tages hängt in der Luft. Es ist schweißtreibend warm. Von der Terrasse aus kann ich das Auftürmen der Wolken beobachten. Schwarz naht eine Gewitterfront. Fernes Grollen und Donnern. Blitze zucken.
Der Himmel sieht aus, als wolle die Welt untergehen. Künstler haben die letzten Momente der Menschheitsgeschichte mit dunklen Farben gemalt. Sturm, Hagel, Blitz und Donner. Die Bibel beschreibt den Weltuntergang mit finsteren Visionen. „Ihr werdet hören von Kriegen und Kriegsgeschrei; seht zu und erschreckt nicht. Denn das muss so geschehen; aber es ist noch nicht das Ende da. Denn es wird sich ein Volk gegen das andere erheben und ein Königreich gegen das andere; und es werden Hungersnöte sein und Erdbeben.“ (Matthäus 24,7). Doch diese Bilder wollen nicht Ängste verbreiten und einschüchtern. Gerade in schwierigen Zeiten war es für viele ein Wort der Hoffnung, wenn es in der Bibel heißt: „Denn wie der Blitz ausgeht vom Osten und leuchtet bis zum Westen, so wird auch das Kommen des Menschensohns sein.“ (Matthäus 24,27).
Diese Welt wird ein Ende haben. Doch dieses Ende soll ein Anfang werden. Wie der Donner zum Blitz gehört und der Blitz zum Gewitter, so sicher ist es, dass Jesus sichtbar wiederkommt und alles neu machen wird. Das soll uns heute Lebensmut geben: „Alle Herren dieser Welt gehen, aber unser Herr, der kommt.“ (G. Heinemann)

Pour ceux qui se poseraient des questions : j'ai acheté quasiment la même référence (i7 à la place du i5) il y a deux semaine en promo sans os sur ldlc (929E avec un code promo) :
-Il y a un port m2/sata fonctionnel dedans (il manquait seulement la vis pour moi mais j'en avais une en reserve) même si ce n'est pas indiqué clairement sur la fiche du fabriquant.
-L’écran est très lumineux si poussé au maximum et les angles de vision sont bons pour du LED (moi j'ai une legere fuite de lumiere visible sur fond noir en bas à gauche mais pas trop genante).
-Les températures sont bonnes en charge (environ 53/54°C max pour le proc). Il peut par contre devenir assez bruyant à pleine charge en jeu.
-le chassis ne chauffe pas, le clavier et le touchpad sont agréables.
-attention : seul l'exterieur de l'ecran est en aluminium, le reste est en plastique.
-les performances générales sont très bonnes (bureautique/jeux) et le wifi est particulièrement bon !
-l'autonomie n’excède pas 2h30/3h sur le web en baissant la luminosité (mais 17''/3kg, ce n'est pas vraiment un ultra portable) donc il vaut mieux avoir une prise à côté.
-La sortie casque est de bonne qualité, les enceintes internes sont juste correctes : on distingue très bien les voix mais les basses sont absentes.
remarque : il est possible de désactiver le rétroéclairage rouge pour obtenir un look plus ordinaire.
A Mexican tribunal has upheld a ban on the import of Roku streaming devices in the country, citing piracy.
Cable TV provider, Cablevision, had successfully managed to have the import and sale of Roku streaming devices banned in the country on the grounds that some owners are using them for illegal television streaming. Roku did manage to have that order suspended for a few days, but has now suffered another setback.
This week, a Mexico City tribunal upheld the initial import ban, keeping it illegal to sell devices from California-based Roku in the country.
"Cablevision cannot allow the content that it licenses from domestic and foreign companies to be illegally used," Cablevision spokeswoman Maria Eugenia Zurita told Reuters.
"We would also like Roku Inc to better supervise the use of its software so that it's not used inappropriately."
Roku devices are set-top media boxes that are intended to be used with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon, Starz and plenty of other legal streaming services on the Internet. In recent years, such devices have fueled a growth in cord-cutting, the practice of dropping cable and satellite television services in favor of online streaming services.
Not all services are legal, of course, and devices can be modified and configured to access illegal streaming services. According to the Reuters report, Roku owners in Mexico are frequently contacted by providers of illegal television streaming services offering them cheap packages of hundreds of television channels, without appropriate permission and licensing.
Roku does not advertise its products for illegal use, and rulings that ban digital media products due to their misuse by some customers could have terrible consequences. Roku is keeping optimistic about the future of its products in Mexico, however.
"Today's decision is not the final word in this complex legal matter, and it is not expected to prevent consumers from purchasing Roku products in Mexico at this time," Roku General Counsel Steve Kay said.

Las prueba para porristas generalmente se llevan a cabo una vez al año , así que es importante prepararse bien por adelantado si quieres formar parte del equipo. ya sea que quieras ingresar a un equipo de porritas de escuela primaria , secundaria o universitaria , de todas las estrellas o semi profesionales , la competencia será más fuerte , y la mayoría de los equipos tienes un número limitado de vacantes disponibles. Podrías estar compitiendo contra miembros anteriores del equipo , porristas experimentadas y gimnastas , haci que es mejor llegar a las pruebas bien preparada.
como ser una buena porrista??????????????????
1_ practica gritar desde tu diafragma , enunciando claramente tus palabras. Las porristas usan este método cuando hacen ovaciones y cánticos , ya que les asegura que tendrán la suficiente potencia mientras desempeñan saltos y bailes.
2_ estira todos los días por 20 minutos antes de las pruebas. La flexibilidad es clave para lograr buenos saltos , sino que te mantendrá a salvo cuando des vueltas y hagas bailes acrobáticos.
3_ haz entrenamiento de fuerza al menos tres veces por semana en tu camino a las pruebas. Las bases , los observadores o los volantes necesitan tener fuerza; las mejores porristas son tan fuertes como flexibles. Puedes comenzar haciendo tres o cuatro juegos de 8 a 12 repeticiones de cada uno de los siguientes ejercicios: sentadillas básicas , estocadas hacia delante y hacia atrás , abdominales y flexiones de brazo.
4_ corre , trota o camina 30 minutos al menos tres veces por semana antes de las pruebas. Esto te ayudará a fortalecer tu resistencia , que es crucial en la animación. Si prefieres puedes usar una máquina elíptica , una bicicleta.
5_ salta frente a un espejo para revisar tu postura y la posición de tus brazos. Si no tienes aseso a un espejo lo suficientemente largo como para ver tus saltos , has que un amigo te grave cuando saltas para que puedas ver tus imágenes. Alternativamente puedes pedirle a un amigo que tenga conocimiento sobre animación que te ofrezca una critica de los mismos. Si bien es ideal que tus pierna puedan elevarse alto , lo más importante es que tu espalda se mantenga recta y tus brazos fuertes. Por sobre todo lo demás , demuéstrale a los jueces que estás en buena forma.

Puede resultar difícil considerar que losporristasocheerleaders(como se les conoce en casi todo el mundo) sean deportistas en forma, quizá porque no los veamos tras un balón , esto puede llevarnos a pensar que esta actividad carece de elementos para considerarse un deporte.

Plan de entrenamiento de 2 semanas para porristas
Con el fin de preparar tu cuerpo para los rigores de las porristas, necesitas resistencia, fuerza, flexibilidad y equilibrio. Cuando sea posible, elije ejercicios inspirados en las porristas, ya que te entrenan de la misma manera que lo harías al hacer porras. Un plan progresivo que aumenta en dificultad durante un período de dos semanas es una manera efectiva de ganar los beneficios que necesitas.
Como porrista, necesitas resistencia para realizar los aplausos, bailes, volteretas, saltos y acrobacias requeridas. La actividad aeróbica que hace latir tu corazón y pone a tus pulmones a trabajar más duro es lo que necesitas para desarrollar resistencia. Haz por lo menos tres sesiones de actividad aeróbica a la semana durante el programa. Si lo deseas, puedes hacer actividad aeróbica en cada entrenamiento. Para una actividad de resistencia inspirada en las porristas, considera realizar tus aplausos y bailes en sucesión rápida, similar a una rutina de danza aeróbica. No tomes descansos entre los vítores y los bailes. Realiza cada elemento varias veces si es necesario con el fin de llenar el tiempo asignado. El objetivo de la primera semana es hacer al menos 30 minutos de actividad aeróbica. En la segunda semana, aumenta tu sesión de resistencia por lo menos 10 minutos.
La fuerza pura que se necesita para conseguir levantar tu cuerpo del suelo en los saltos complejos y difíciles habilidades de giros. Levantar a otra animadora del suelo no es tarea fácil. Incluye un componente de entrenamiento de la fuerza por lo menos tres veces a la semana en tus dos semanas de entrenamiento. Toma un día de descanso en el medio para permitir que tus músculos se recuperen. Los ejercicios que utilizan tu propio peso corporal para la resistencia son más fáciles de incorporar, ya que no requieren ningún equipo y se pueden hacer en cualquier lugar. Considera la posibilidad de hacer sentadillas y estocadas en tus piernas, flexiones de pecho y los brazos y abdominales para construir una base fuerte. Un gran entrenamiento de ejercicios de torso que imita los movimientos de un salto es el situp V o navaja. Parte de espaldas con las piernas estiradas y los brazos extendidos sobre la cabeza. Levanta los brazos y las piernas, al mismo tiempo, que pones tu cuerpo en una posición en V con sólo tu trasero en contacto con el suelo. Baja la espalda hacia la posición de partida, pero no dejes que tus brazos o piernas toquen el suelo entre repeticiones. Realiza levantamientos en V en grupos de 10. En la segunda semana, haz tres a cinco series de 10.
Las porristas tienen que ser extremadamente flexibles. La posición de saltar con las piernas abiertas y tocar tus pies y la postura arqueada de la llamada posición de picadura de escorpión requieren de músculos flexibles y una amplia gama de movimiento en las articulaciones. Estira todos los días durante tu programa de dos semanas. Calienta tus músculos antes de los estiramientos y mantén todas las posiciones de estiramiento durante 30 segundos. Incluye abrirte de piernas, ponerlas en casi 180 grados y estiramientos de puente. Mejorar la flexibilidad lleva tiempo. No hay que esperar milagros al término de dos semanas. El entrenamiento de la flexibilidad es algo que tendrás que continuar mucho después de que tu programa de entrenamiento de dos semanas haya terminado.
El buen equilibrio te ayudará a balancearte en una postura de acrobacia, proporcionar una base sólida para la acrobacia y aterrizar con seguridad después de las volteretas y saltos. Entrénate para el equilibrio en cada sesión que hagas mediante la ejecución de posiciones de acrobacia en el suelo. Por ejemplo, párate con los pies al ancho de las caderas y los brazos encima de la cabeza en una posición de V alta. Practica la alineación correcta tirando de los abdominales hacia la columna y relajando los hombros. Realiza posiciones de un pie, como una libertad y estiramiento del talón también. Durante una semana, ejecuta tus posiciones en tierra firme. En la segunda semana de tu programa, intenta estas posiciones en algo que ponga a prueba tu estabilidad. Si tienes acceso a un colchón de oscilación, que se asemeje a un balón de estabilidad aplanado, realiza tus posiciones de acrobacia sobre el mismo. De lo contrario, sólo tienes que mantener el equilibrio sobre una almohada o un cojín de sofá.

Un jugador de videojuegos aficionado a la temática retro está transformándose en la sensación de Reddit de estos últimos días mediante sus creaciones pictóricas basadas en pantallazos de juegos retro.
Andres1984 ha tomado screens de clásicos de la NES, la primera gran consola de sobremesa de Nintendo, y se ha encargado de recrearlos dibujando encima de ellos para darles un toque actual con profundidad y efectos.
Las recreaciones, como puedes ver en las imágenes, incluyen juegos como Contra 2, Punch Out y Duck Hunt, entre otros, para repasar grandes clásicos de finales de los ochenta en la NES.
El trabajo artístico realizado por este aficionado ha hecho que la comunidad se pregunte cómo quedarían en movimiento estas revisiones gráficas de transformarse en remasterizaciones jugables.
¿Qué te parecen estos diseños? Propuestas como ésta demuestran que lo retro está más de moda que nunca. Que se lo digan a todos los jugadores que están luchando por reservar una SNES Mini esta semana.

Catch up on the week’s electoral reform news with our round up of folks across the country writing and talking about FairVote reform vision. This week, Congressman Don Beyer introduced the Fair Representation Act (FRA), H.R. 3057.
Congressman Don Beyer wrote for The Washington Postabout needing to change how we elect the House of Representatives. “Applied nationally, we would have more moderate Democrats from districts leaning Republican, and vice versa, creating a type of politician — now nearly extinct — known as a ‘bridge builder.’ Many members would share constituents with members of the other major party, creating incentives to work together on legislation affecting the district.”
Anita Earls wrote forThe Nationabout how the Fair Representation Act would put an end to gerrymandering and improve representation for communities of color. “There is a way forward. If we want to stop gerrymandering, and move beyond constant litigation over how lines are drawn, we must rethink the way we do districting itself. That’s why the Fair Representation Act creates such an exciting path forward. In states like Texas, for example, where black and Latino populations live close together, those communities are often pitted against each other for the one majority-minority seat. A multi-winner district, and a genuine multi-racial slate, would decrease tension between racial minorities, while increasing their voice.”
FairVote Executive Director Rob Richie and Board Chair Krist Novoselic spoke to Pedro Echevarria of the Washington Journal C-SPAN about FairVote’s 25th Anniversary year and the introduction of the Fair Representation Act. “With multi-member districts, you don’t need to receive 50% of the vote, which is what you do when you’re just electing one person like president. You can lower that share to whatever is proportionate to the number of seats, so if you have 5 seats it will take about a 5th of the vote. And by doing that, it opens up every single corner of every single state to meaningful engagement and participation and representation. One party would not sweep all of the seats anywhere.”
The American Prospect reported on the Fair Representation Act and its potential to end Congressional Dysfunction. "The bill would not only institute nonpartisan redistricting commissions and a new voting system designed to create a proportionally representational Congress, but also aims to dramatically reduce the number of safe seats for each party and eliminate the unopposed re-election of representatives. In 2014, 31 congressional representatives were re-elected unopposed."
Lanae Erickson Hatalsky and David De la Fuente of ThirdWay wrote in U.S. News & World Report about why voters need the Fair Representation Act. “If policymakers don’t offer solutions to fix our electoral system and restore faith that our representative democracy is working the way it should, voters will continue to react with anger and deliver wave elections where they “throw the bums out” every other year. As we’ve seen over the past few election cycles, these reactive waves make it even harder to govern, further contributing to the cycle of frustration that led to them in the first place.”
The Alexandria Newsreports on the introduction of the Fair Representation Act, introduced by Rep. Don Beyer of Virginia’s 8th district. “The Fair Representation Act is the most comprehensive approach to improving congressional elections in American history,” said Rob Richie, the executive director of FairVote. “It creates an impartial, national standard that gets at the core of FairVote’s mission: Giving voters greater choice, a stronger voice, and a representative democracy that works for all Americans.”
I’m sponsoring the Fair Representation Act because Congress is broken. It is hyper-partisan. It is far too polarized. The FRA creates a structure where members of Congress are incentivized to work together. This is the right thing to do to give voters the strong voice that they deserve in our elections.
--Congressman Don Beyer (VA-08)
On June 26, 2017, Congressman Don Beyer (D-VA) introduced H.R. 3057: The Fair Representation Act. He was joined by co-sponsors Jamie Raskin (D-MD) and Ro Khanna (D-CA). This is a historic moment. The Fair Representation Act is the most comprehensive approach to reforming congressional elections in United States history. It would truly realize the vision of the House of Representatives as “The People’s House.”
The Fair Representation Act
FairVote has called for expanding the use of multi-winner ranked choice voting in United States elections since its founding 25 years ago. Ranked choice voting can replace the broken, zero-sum, winner-take-all system - in which the biggest group of voters in a district are the only ones earning representation - with fair representation for all. In this era of fierce partisan divisions, nowhere needs this change more than the House of Representatives.
Under the Fair Representation Act, every state would use ranked choice voting to elect its Representatives. Voters would be free to rank their choices without fear of “spoilers.” Instead of only one candidate winning with the most votes, several candidates would win based on how many votes they earn. For example, in a state like Oklahoma or Connecticut that elects 5 winners, 17% of voters can elect 1 of the 5 winners; 34% of voters can elect 2 of the 5 winners; and so on. A majority of voters can always elect a majority of seats, and everyone earns their fair share.
States that elect up to 5 winners will not need any districts at all. Larger states will use districts, but the districts will elect 3, 4, or 5 winners each. That means that a state like Massachusetts that elects 9 Representatives will divide into equal thirds, with each of the three districts electing 3 winners with ranked choice voting. To adopt a district map, these states will form independent redistricting commissions composed of ordinary state citizens (not politicians or lobbyists) who will operate transparently and hold hearings around the state to find the district map that makes the most sense for their state.
The use of ranked choice voting in multi-winner elections will transform the House of Representatives. The current system only allows the biggest group of voters in each district to win representation, all other voices are silenced. As a result, there are millions of voters who prefer Democrats stuck in safe Republican districts and millions of voters who prefer Republicans stuck in safe Democratic districts, women and people of color are under-represented, and everyone has too few choices. The Fair Representation Act can elevate those voices, giving them more power to elect candidates they support and who will go to Congress to work for them.
A Historic Moment
Under the Constitution, Congress has the responsibility to act when our federal elections are not working. It has acted on that responsibility many times in the past, passing laws changing how we elect Congress in 1842 (requiring single-winner districts), 1872 (equal populations per representative), 1901 (requiring that districts be “compact”), 1929 (repealing the requirement to use districts), and 1967 (re-imposing the requirement to use districts). It has been 50 years since Congress has acted in this arena, even as the current system fails to deliver on the promise of a representative House.
Representative Beyer has shown tremendous leadership in holding Congress to its constitutional responsibilities. The attention it attracted from the public demonstrates the hunger that voters have for a more empowering system. FairVote livestreamed Rep. Beyer’s press conference, which was viewed over 44,000 times and ultimately reached over 554,000 people.
The day after the bill’s introduction, Rep. Beyer published an opinion piece in the Washington Post explaining why he introduced the Act. It begins “Democracy is in crisis. Even as the country is deeply divided along class and ideological lines, it seems to be unified in its frustration with our current brand of politics.” Other voices have also weighed in on the need for the Fair Representation Act, including:
David Daley interviewed Rep. Don Beyer on why he’s sponsoring the Fair Representation Act. That Q & A was published in Salon this week.
As more media coverage happens in the coming days and weeks, we'll add it to the list on our website.
You Can Help the Fair Representation Act Gain Momentum
Now that the vehicle for transforming elections to the U.S. House of Representatives is a bill in Congress, you can help to move the conversation forward. Contact your Representative today to ask them to support the Fair Representation Act. You can find your Representative here, and email them a letter supporting the Fair Representation Act. A sample letter is provided here. You also could consider calling your Member, which increases their likelihood of responding. Better still would be to form a group to have a meeting with your Member and their district office staff.
Finally, we want to keep adding names to our petition in support of the Act. We currently have over 1500 signatures. Please consider sharing the petition online and drawing people’s attention to our new video and our public resources, at FairRepresentation.com.

니시테츠선의 남창역~홍□역 간이 개통한 영향으로 경철의 승객이 증가한 때문, KCR는 2007년에 22량의 난징포진전철을 증비 해, 경철선에 투입했다.차량 번호는 1111에서 1132.전철로는 IGBT소자VVVF 인버터 제어와 교류 모터를 채용한 차량이다.이 차량은 당초보다 선두부에 LED식의 행선지 표시기와 후부에 계통 번호 표시기를 채용해, 새로운 도장으로 도입되고 있다.
선두 외형은 Goninan 전철과 다르고 있지만 운용은 각 전철 모두 공통이다.
2009년12월 28일에 1111호차와 1112호차가 정식으로 운용을 개시, 507 계통과 751 계통으로 운용되고 있다.
베트르가강은 세이베르누이에 구릉의 남으로 출발해, 북쪽에 흐른 후에 90도 방향을 바꾸어 서쪽에, 게다가 90도 방향을 바꾸어 남쪽에 흘러 남동 방향을 향해 보르가 카와모토류의 체보크사르이 인공호수에 합류한다.좌안은 저지에서, 우안은 니탄암과 사암으로 구성된 표고 100 m 가까운 구릉지가 되어 있다.흐름은 완만하고, 연안에는 다수의 초승달호수가 산재 한다.왼쪽 지류에는 네이카와(Нея), 대카크샤강(БольшаяКакша), 우스타강(Уста), 유론가강(Юронга), 오른쪽 지류에는 보후마강(Вохма), 룰다강(Люнда)등이 있다.11 월초두로부터 4월까지는 동결해, 그 다음은 눈석임물이나 녹은 얼음등에서 증수한다.
강가의 주된 거리에는 샤리야(Шарья)나 베트르가(Ветлуга), 작은 마을에는 바르나비나(Варнавино), 비트르시스키(Ветлужский), 쿠라스누이・에바키(КрасныеБаки), 보스크리세인스코에(Воскресенское)등이 있다.
전체 길이는 최대 40 cm 정도로, 같은 다트눈의 꽁치와 잘 닮은 홀쪽한 체형을 하고 있다.사요리과일반의 특징으로서 아랫턱이 길게 쑥 내밀어, 웃턱은 작은 삼각형의 변장 너무 밖에4 겉껍데기, 이 일견 언밸런스한 형태의 구기의 적응적 의의는 잘 모른다.단지, 같은 트비워상과의 트비워류도, 치어 때에 같은 아랫턱의 신장이 일어나는 것이 알려져 있다.이 아랫턱의 첨단은 살아 있을 때는 붉다.등은 청록색이지만 복측은 은빛에 빛나, 근육은 반투명이다.
복막은 새까맣고 일반적으로 「외관에 의하지 않고 음험한 사람」의 대명사로 여겨지기도 하지만, 이것은 근육이 반투명으로 빛을 투과 하기 쉬운 생선에 잘 볼 수 있는 현상으로, 아마 복강내에 빛이 투과 하는 것을 막는 적응으로 보여진다.이와 같이 복막이 검은 잉어과의 담수어 하크렌으로는, 성장에 수반해 음식이 동물 플랑크톤으로부터 식물플랑크톤으로 이행하는 시기에 급속히 복막이 흑변 하는 것이 알려져 있지만, 이 이행 시기에 강한 닛코를 받으면, 소화관에 받아들여진 식물플랑크톤이 광합성을 실시해 산소의 기포가 발생해, 소화관이 부풀어 올라 수면에 배를 위로 해 떠오르는 등의 장해가 발생하는 것이 보고되고 있다.사요리도 후술과 같이 성장에 따라서 해조도 먹게 되기 위해, 혹은 섭식 한 해조의 광합성을 억제하는 의미가 있을지도 모른다.
연안성으로, 가라후토의 서쪽에서 대만에 걸친 북서 태평양, 일본해, 황해, 발해 만의 육지 근해에 분포한다.해면 스쳐 스쳐를 떼를 지어 헤엄쳐, 동물 플랑크톤을 포식 하거나 부유 하는 해조의 단편을 섭식 한다.위험을 느끼면 자주(잘) 공중에 점프 한다.사요리과에는 담수역에까지 침입하는 종이 많이 알려지지만, 사요리는 기수역까지는 진입하는 것의 순담수역에까지는 진입하지 않는다.
4월 중순부터 8월 중순이 산란기이며, 무리로 해초가 밀생하는 장소에 비집고 들어가, 송사리의 알을 닮은 직경 2.2 mm정도의 굵은 알을, 점착실로 해조나 해초에 휘감기게 한다.부화 직후의 자어는 전체 길이 7 mm정도로, 이것이 2.5 cm정도까지 성장하면 아랫턱의 신장이 시작된다.아랫턱은 일단 성어보다 전체 길이비로 길게 신장하지만, 점차 몸의 다른 부분의 성장이 현저해져, 전체 길이 27 cm정도가 되면, 거의 성어와 같은 프로포션이 된다.수명은 2년남짓이라고 생각되고 있다.
봄부터 가을에 걸쳐 어획 되지만, 순은 3월부터 5월에 걸쳐로 여겨진다.생선회, 스시구나, 완이구나, 튀김, 소금구이, 건어물 등에 요리되어 흰자위의 고급어로서 다루어진다.생선회 등 비가열로 조리할 때는, 세워 소금으로 하면 특색의 단맛이 두드러진다고 여겨진다.낚시의 대상어라고 해도 선호되어 관동에서는 일반적인 우키 낚시나 후카세 낚시해, 칸사이에서는 시모리나 련타마로 불리는 우키가 3~10개 늘어선 장치가 잘 이용된다.바다에서 강에 거슬러 올라가기도 해 (대)장대에 낚싯줄을 쳐 궁상으로 해 실을 강에 가라앉혀 수면을 소상 하는 사요리를 걸어 낚시하기도 한다.
노가타시의 북부에 위치한다.역의 동쪽을 지방도로 27호선이 지나고 있다. 이전에는 구내동 근처에 노오가타 운수 센터( 구・노오가타 기동차구)가 있었지만, 전화 시에 노오가타역 구내에 이전해 철거되고 있다.노오가타 기동차구가 존재하고 있었을 무렵은, 기동차구와 노오가타역과의 사이의 승무원의 편승도 잘 행해지고 있었다.근년, 역 주변에서는 슈퍼마켓이나 음식점등이 진출하고 있다.
아포로드로스에 의하면, 아버지 아우게이아스와 헤이라크레이스가 가축 오두막의 청소의 보수에 대하고 결정을 했을 때, 퓨레우스는 그 증인이 되었다.헤이라크레이스는 약속 대로 일을 완수했지만, 아우게이아스는 보수의 지불을 거부해, 또 보수를 지불할 약속을 했던 것에 대해도 부정해, 재판으로 싸워도 괜찮다고 했다.그러나 법정에서 퓨레우스는 헤이라크레이스의 아군을 했기 때문에, 화낸 아우게이아스에 의해서 에이리스로부터 추방되어 두리키온에 이주한.
이 이야기는 벌써 「이리아스」로 단편적으로 말해지고 있다.즉 퓨레우스는 아버지의(헤이라크레이스에 대한다) 행동을 화내고, 두리키온에 이주했다고.
파우사니아스도 같은 이야기에 가세해그 후일담에 대해서도 접하고 있다.헤이라크레이스가 보복을 위해서 에이리스를 공격해 점령했고 말이야 있어, 헤이라크레이스는 퓨레우스를 두리키온으로부터 불러와 에이리스의 왕으로 했다.그러나 퓨레우스는 에이리스의 국제를 제정한 후에, 다시 두리키온으로 돌아와, 에이리스는 형제의 아가스테네이스가 후를 이었다고 하는.
그 외, 퓨레우스는 아루카데아왕에케모스의 아내였던 티만드라가 미쳤을 때, 그녀를 두리키온에 데려 돌아가고 아내로 한 것, 에퓨라의 왕에우페테스로부터 뛰어난 무기를 내려 주셨던 것이 알려져 있는.
전작의 오리지날 앨범 「ONE」으로부터 1년 5개월만이 되는 오리지날 앨범.데뷔 15주년을 기념하여 15곡으로 구성되어 있어 과거의 앨범 제작에 관계한 프로듀서, 뮤지션에게 참가받아 제작했다.또 자신처음이 되는 캐나다에서의 레코딩도 감행.캐나다 이외의 레코딩은 해외의 프로듀서와 데이터로의 교환으로 실시해, 본인은 국내에서 보컬・레코딩을 행하고 있다.
본앨범의 타이틀의 유래는, 수록곡의 가사를 다시 읽었는데 자신에게 향해서 노래하고 있는 것 같은 사가 많아, 자신이 자신에게 향해서 말을 거는 것은"일기"다라고 생각했기 때문에.영어권의 사람들은 일기의 서두에"Dear Diary"라고 쓰는 일도 유래하고 있는.첫회 한정반의 수록곡이 15곡인 것은, 우연히 커플링곡이 15곡이었으므로 라이브 영상도 15곡으로 했다는 일.
첫회 한정반은 특수 패키지 사양이 되어 있어, 1996년부터 2009년까지 발매된 싱글의 커플링곡을 수록한 CD 「BONNIE PINK B-side collection(1996 - 2009)」라고, 2009년에 행해진 「TOUR 2009"ONE"파이널 at아카사카 BLITZ」의 라이브 영상이 수록된 DVD가 부속.
첫회반・통상판의 첫회 프레스반공통의 구입 특전으로서 2010년 11월 2일~12월 3일에 행해지는 「BONNIE PINK TOUR 2010 "Dear Diary"」의 티켓 선행 예약 정보가 게재되고 있었다.또, 본앨범의 선행 싱글 「가이토」라고 더블 구입 특전으로서 본인 직필 사인들이의 아날로그반이 추첨으로 150명에게 선물 되는 응모권이 붙어 있었다.
다시로다케 산을 중심으로, 요네시로천의 지류인 이와세천의 빠른 말사와・이와세늪의 오오카와눈계류 일대 1,855 ha가 「다시로다케 산 현립 자연공원」으로 지정되어 있다(지정은 1975년1월 11일).9합목의 고층 다습 초원에는 목도가 정비되어 하이킹 코스로서 사랑받고 있다.
다시로다케 산은, 옛부터 논신앙의 산이다.산정에 있는 타시로 야마가미사에는 오곡풍양의 코우 「시라히게 나오비노신」이 모셔져 매년반나쯔오의 날(7월 2일경)에는 예제가 개최된다.예제의 제사로서 행해지는 「작 운세」로는, 못둑을 신의 논으로 해, 거기에 자생하는 미트가시와나 미네하리이를 벼에 진단하고, 그 생육 상태나 못둑의 물의 의욕 상태등에서 그 해의 벼농사의 풍흉을 점친다.동시에 행해지는 「산호 집」이라고 불리는 제사로는, 조생・중도・만생을 나타내는 3장의 5엔 구슬에 일본 종이의 지노를 통해 만든 길이 20 cm의 펜던트를 못둑에 던져 , 그 가라앉는 방법으로부터 작황을 점친다.
옛날은, 9호째부터 산정까지 나 있는 가는 나무를 꺾어 작게 묶어 가지고 돌아가, 순간마제물상에 올리고 풍작을 빌었다고 여겨진다.논의 미즈쿠치에 들어갈 수 있으면 제충이 되었다고도 말해진다.이 나무의 다발은, 산에 오르지 않았던 사람에게의 선물로서 환영받았다고도 말해진다.
행정 관리 예산국의 역할의 하나는, 약한해를 걸쳐 각 행정기관의 개별의 정책을 평가해, 경합 하는 예산 요구를 조정, 사정해 매년 2 월초에 의회에 송부하는 예산 교서를 작성하는 것이다.덧붙여 아메리카 합중국에서는 대통령이 의회에 법안을 제출하지 못하고, 예산 교서를 송부하는 것은 어디까지나 권고이며, 정식으로는 의원이 제안자가 된다.또, 예산 교서가 그대로 채용되는 것도 아니다.
행정 관리 예산국의 그 외의 역할로서는, 각 행정기관이 헛됨을 생략해, 효율적인 업무를 실시하는 것에 의해서, 국민이 낮은 비용으로 행정 서비스를 용이하게 이용할 수 있도록 하는 것(전자 정부 정책의 추진)나, 각 행정기관의 규제 정책 분석을 감시하는 것등이 있다.
천황상은, 일본 중앙 경마회(JRA)가 춘・추에 연 2회 시행하는 경마의 후한 상금으로, 국제적으로는 최고위의 GI에 등급설정 되고 있다.제1회에 상당하는 「황실상전」은 1937년(쇼와 12년)에 행해지고 있지만, JRA가 전신으로 하고 있는 「The Emperor's Cup(엔페라즈캅)」는 1905년(메이지 38년), 한층 더 루트를 더듬으면 1880년(메이지 13년)의 「Mikado's Vase」까지 거슬러 올라갈 수 있고 일본에서 시행되는 GI경주 중(안)에서도, 긴 역사와 전통을 가지는 경주이다.
1984년(쇼와 59년) 이후, 봄은 교토 경마장의 잔디 3200 m로 「천황상(봄)」, 가을은 도쿄 경마장의 잔디 2000 m로 「천황상(가을)」이라고 표기해 시행되고 있다.2015년(헤세이 27년)은 춘・추 모두 1억 5000만엔의 1벌 상금이 주어지고 있는 것 외에 황실로부터도 우승 상품으로서 방패가 하사 되고 있어"방패"라고 통칭 되기도 한다.……
주로 척추동물과 아메바등의 원생 생물을 여관 주인으로 하는 세포내 기생 생물이다.ATP/ADP 트란스로카제등의 각종 수송체를 가지고 있어 여관 주인으로부터 에너지나 영양을 취득해 생육하고 있다.이 때문에 세포외에서는 완전히 증식 하지 못하고, 환경안으로는 감염성이 있는 기본 작은 몸의 형태를 취한다.의학적으로 중요한 세균군이지만, 인공 배양지에서 배양할 수 없기 때문에 배양은 배양 세포나 계란을 사용할 필요가 있어, 연구가 어려운 그룹이다.

「우주 에이스」・「마하 GoGoGo」에 계속 되는 타트노코프로 제작 애니메이션의 3 작목으로, 타트노코개그 노선의 우는 살이 된 작품이다.원작은 사사가와 히로시가 「주간 소년 선데이」1966년 3월 13일호에 발표한 「온 고물 괴수 쿠즈라」로, 애니메이션의 방송 기간중에는 이타이레응타로에 의한 코미카라이즈 작품이 같이 「주간 소년 선데이」에 연재되고 있었다.또한 단행본은, 우선 새벽 출판으로부터 전3권(연대 불명), 그 앞으로 1976년에 유분샤로부터 전2권이 발매되었지만, 모두 절판, 2008년8월부터는 「만화 숍」에서(보다) 발매되고 있다(전2권).
그즈라가 유원지에 간 이야기(화수불명)로는, 요코하마 드림 랜드(현재폐원)에서 로케이션 촬영해 온 실사 영상이 배경으로 사용되어 클라이막스로는 실사의 브라스 밴드 행진 씬에 애니메이션의 그즈라를 합성한 영상이 사용되고 있었다.이것은 사사가와의 발안이었지만, 당시 타트노코프로의 전무였던 요시다 켄지가 「집은 애니메이션가게다.애니메이션을 만들고 있으면 된다」라고 의견한 것에 의해, 이래 동프로는 애니메이션 실사 합성을 봉인하게 된.
자궁 하수・자궁탈은, 출산 회수가 많은 여성이 고령이 되고 나서 일으키기 쉽다.또, 산후의 빠를 때로부터 육체 노동등을 하고 있으면 되기 쉽다.출산 직후의 여성으로 일시적으로 자궁 하수・자궁탈 상태를 볼 수 있는 경우도 있지만, 복부에 무리한 힘을 걸치지 않게 주의하며 보내고 있으면, 자궁이 원래의 크기에 축소해 오는 무렵에는(자궁 복고), 대부분 자연스럽게 해소되는 것이 많다.자궁 복고를 촉진해, 장래의 자궁탈을 예방하기 위해서는, 골반저근등을 단련하는 산욕 체조도 유효하다.
별로 알려지지 않은 것이지만, 좋은 성생활(파트너와의 성교 또는 자위에 의한다)을 보내고 있는 여성은, 그 때문에(위해) 골반저근을 단련되기 위해서, 예방하기 쉬운 것이 보고되고 있다(Jaqueline Goncalves, 2013).
경도의 자궁 하수로는, 우선은 예방시와 같이, 골반저근을 단련하는 케이 겔 체조를 지도해, 증상의 완화나 진행의 방지를 도모한다.한층 더 물리적인 자궁 위치의 지지가 필요한 경우는, 페서리등의 기구로 자궁구를 아래로부터 지탱하는 조치를 취한다.그러면 늦지 않지 않고, 게다가 향후의 출산 희망이 있는 사람으로는, 자궁을 온존 한 채로 느슨해진 인대나 근육을 보강하는 등, 다시 매달아 올리는 고정 수술을 실시한다.출산 희망이 없는 사람으로는, 자궁의 일부 절제나 전적에 의해서 탈출 부분을 제외해, 방광이나 직장의 위치도 조정하는 수술 방법도 선택 가능해진다.노령에 성교를 필요로 하지 않는 경우는, 질의 폐쇄를 베풀기도 한다.2005년부터 타케야마・시마다등에 의해, 자궁・질을 온존 해 재발율의 적은 TVM 수술(Tension-free Vaginal Mesh)이 일본에 도입되고 있다.최근에는, 페미쿳션이라고 하는 새로운 치료 방법도 개발되어 치료에 유효로 되어 있다.
소, 돼지로 많다.4켤레 보행의 동물로는, 사람과 같이 중력으로 자연스럽게 하수 해 와 탈출하는 것이 아니라, 출산에 임하여 자궁이 반전하는 형태로 볼 수 있다.조기에 발견되어 신속하게 접골을 하면 예후는 양호하지만, 발생 후 시간이 경과하고 있으면 자궁 점막의 건조, 울혈, 부종이 인정되고 접골이 곤란해져, 비록 접골 했다고 해도 자궁에 손상을 주어 예후 불량이 되는 일이 있다.난산에 있어서의 장시간의 견인, 분만 후의 강도의 진통의 지속이 주된 원인이 된다.소에 있어서의 자궁탈의 치료법은, 진통 억제를 위한 미추경막외 마취를 실시해, 자세를 전저 후고로서 자궁의 탈출 부위를 멸균 생리 식염수에 의해 세정, 자궁탈출기초부보다 서서히 접골을 실시한다.접골 후에 자궁의 수축 촉진을 위해서 오키시트신을 근육내 혹은 피하 투여한다.
이 기관차는 번호 외에 역사상의 인물(홋카이도 관련이 많은 경향)에게 연관된 애칭을 첨부 되고 있는 것도 알려져 1 - 6에는 번호순서에, 「의경(의경/좋아 꼬집어)」, 「변경(강자/베응괘선)」, 「히라후(히라후)」, 「광국(봐 붙는에)」, 「신광(노부히로/노부 히로)」, 「시즈인가(정/시즈인가)」라고 명명되고 있다(1889년제의 2량은 무명).이것은, 당시의 뉴욕영사인 타카기 사부로의 의견에 의한 것이라고 하고 있다.
서부극으로부터 빠져 나온 것 같은, 미국의 고전적 스타일의 기관차로, 그 애칭과 함께 일본의 고전 증기기관차의 대표격으로서 사랑받고 있다.
1880년 11월 28일, 테미야-삿포로간이 개업해, 1 「의경」이라고 2 「변경」의 사용이 개시되었다.다음 1881년(메이지 13년) 8월 30일에는, 메이지천황이 이 구간에 승차해, 「의경」이 「개척사호」객차를 포함한 보기 객차 9 양편성의 특별 열차를 견인하고 있는.
1882년 11월 13일에는 삿포로-호로나이간이 연신 개업해, 3 「히라후」라고 4 「광국」이 증비 되고 있다.그 후, 5 「신광」이라고 6 「시즈인가」가 증비 되었지만, 1887년의 증비는 약간 대형의 볼드 윈제의 1 C형 텐다 기관차(7, 8.후의 7170형)되었다.1889년에는, 다시 포터제가 2 양증비 되어 「9, 10」(이)가 되었지만, 후에 전술의 「7, 8」(이)라고 번호를 교환(10, 9→7, 8)해, 포터제를 「1 - 8」에 가지런히 하고 있다.
1889년 12월 10일, 호로나이 철도는 홋카이도탄광철도에 불하할 수 있어 본형도 동사에 인계되었다.홋카이도탄광철도로는 A형(1 - 8), 후에 이형으로 했다.
홋카이도탄광철도 5(개장 후)
홋카이도탄광철도로는, 본형에 대해연실의 연장이나 다이아몬드형 굴뚝의 파이프형에의 교환, 카우캐챠의 철거등의 개조가 행해지고 원형이 손상되어 갔다.1899년(메이지 32년)에는, 7이 홋카이도청철도부(홋카이도 관립 철도)에 양도되어 같은 부의 B2형(11)이 되고 있다.같은 비행기는, 굴뚝이나 연실의 개조가 시행되지 않고, 원형에 가까운 형태를 유지하고 있었다.하지만, 어쨌든, 영업 열차에 사용되는 것은 거의 없고, 주로 건설공사나 제설용으로 사용되어 있던 것 듯한다.관립 철도(철도 작업국) 편입 후는 Ec형이라고 칭했다.
전술과 같이, 1906년 10월 1일, 홋카이도탄광철도는 매수・국유화 되어 관립 철도에 편입되었다.전년 4월에 이관되고 있던 홋카이도 관립 철도의 1량을 포함하고, 본형의 8 양전부가 관립 철도에 인계되었다.1909년(메이지 42년)에는, 철도원의 차량 칭호 규정이 제정되어 7100형(7100 - 7107)으로 고칠 수 있었다.공식의 개번은 다음 대로이다.
이 때의 개번이지만, 실제의 번호와 현차의 제조 번호의 사이의 관계에 상당한 혼란이 생기고 있다.이것은, 제조명판이 보일러에 장착되고 있던 것과 홋카이도탄광철도로는 수선의 효율화 때문에, 밑주위와 보일러를 따로따로 관리하고 있어, 상호의 대체가 빈번히 행해지고 있었기 때문에 생긴 것으로, 본형이 3량이나 보존되게 되는 원인이 되고 있다(이 상세한 것에 대하여는, 차절로 말한다).
이 시점에서, 7103이 입환용으로, 다른 7량이 홋카이도청건설 사무소에 대출되어 건설용으로 사용되고 있었다.
1915년(타이쇼 4년)에는 점착력의 증대를 도모하기 위해, 선륜을 철거하는 개조를 하코다테 공장에서 시행되었지만, 사행동이 심해져, 곧바로 복구되고 있다.다만, 개조의 기록을 확인할 수 있는 것은 7103만으로, 복구의 기록도 없고, 전차에 시행되었는지 어떠했는지는 의심스럽다.
그 후, 1917년(타이쇼 6년)에 7106이 폐차되어 일본 제강소 무로란 제작소에 매각된 것을 시작으로, 7103이 1922년(타이쇼 11년)에 폐차, 1923년(타이쇼 12년)에 7100, 7102, 7104, 7105, 7107이 폐차가 되어, 7100, 7102, 7107이 홋카이도 건설 사무소에, 1925년(타이쇼 14년)에는 7104, 7105가 가문의 이름철공소( 후의 제국차량 공업)에 양도되고 있다.7101은 보존을 위해 도쿄에 보내진 후의 1924년(타이쇼 13년)에 폐차가 되고 있다.
가문의 이름철공소에 양도된 7104는, 후에 고치 철도( 후의 토사 전기 철도아키선)의 건설용으로 양도되었지만, 공사 완성 후에 해체되었다.
도쿄에 보내진 7101
1922년, 홋카이도의 1호 기관차인 「의경」을 도쿄에 신설되는 철도 박물관(후의 교통 박물관)에 보존하게 되어, 7101이 「의경」의 후신이다고 추정되어 1923년 8월에 같은 관에 보내졌다.그러나, 동년 9월 1일에 발생한 관동 대지진에 의해 도쿄 들어가지 못하고, 같은 비행기는 쿠로이소역 구내의 기관고에 10년 이상이나 보관(방치)되게 되었다.
1936년(쇼와 11년), 7101은 오미야 공장(현재의 오미야 종합 차량 센터)에서 「의경」으로서 복원되게 되었다.그러나 동년, 철도 팬인 시마자키 에이이치와 카와카미행의가 「7101이 「변경」, 7105가 「의경」이다」라고의 조사 결과를 오미야 공장에 보고해, 7101은 일전 「변경」으로서 복원되게 되었다.1940년(쇼와 15년), 같은 비행기의 복원이 완성해, 철도 박물관에 수장, 정태 보존되었다.1958년(쇼와 33년)에는 철도 기념물로 지정되어 있다.교통 박물관 폐관 후는, 2007년(헤세이 19년) 10월 14일에 사이타마시오미야구에 개관한 철도 박물관에 옮겨져 전시되고 있다.
홋카이도에서의 초기의 움직임
한편, 홋카이도에서는 2호 기관차인 「변경」을 삿포로에서 보존하려고 하는 것이 되었다.삿포로 철도국 공작과로는 폐차가 되고 있던 7103, 7107을 제외한 6량의 명판을 조사해, 7100이 1889년제의 제조 번호 1010, 7101이 1880년제의 제조 번호 369, 7102가 1884년제의 제조 번호 643, 7104가 1882년제의 제조 번호 488, 7106이 1885년제의 제조 번호 672이다고 판명되었다(7105는 명판이 없어져 있었기 때문에 조사 불능).그 후의 알아 들어 조사에 의해, 7103이 1882년제의 제조 번호 487, 7107이 1889년제의 제조 번호 1009인 것을 알 수 있어 왔다.이렇게 되면 7105는, 명판은 없어도 「의경」인가 「변경」의 어느 쪽인지인 것에 틀림없을 것이지만, 공작과로는 왠지 7101을 「의경」, 7105를 「신광」이라고 단정해 버렸다.「변경」은 7102이다고 했지만, 제조년이 합치하지 않기 때문에, 7106 「시즈인가」를 보존하기로 결정해 1929년(쇼와 4년) 11월에 일본 제강소와 「불필요하게 되었을 경우는, 동량의 고철과 교환으로 철도성이 물러간다」취지의 각서를 교환타.
홋카이도청건설국에 양도되고 있던 7100, 7102는, 1950년에 용도 폐지가 되어 나에보 공장에 보내져 7100은 동년 11월의 홋카이도 철도 개통 70주년 기념전에 정비 후 전시되었지만, 7102는 1952년에 해체되었다.
1952년(쇼와 27년)은 철도 개통 80주년의 해이며, 많은 기념 사업이 계획되었지만, 다카토리 공장에서는 「의경」을 복원하게 되었다.7105는 제국 차량으로 텐다를 제외해, 불모양인 옆수조와 탄고를 설치되어 탱크 기관차에 개조되고 있어 불과 4개월 남짓의 분주한 일정이었지만, 보기 좋게 동태 복원되었다.
홋카이도에서는, 1952년 9월에 일본 제강소 무로란 제작소에서 불필요해진 7106이 미리의 약속 대로 국철에 인도해졌다.같은 비행기는, 제강소에서 서들 탱크식의 탱크 기관차에 개조되고 있었지만, 나에보 공장에서는 7100의 부품을 유용해 10월에 복원을 완성시켰다.복원이 완성된 「의경」과「시즈인가」는 도쿄에 보내져 10월 14일의 철도 기념일에 하라쥬쿠역의 궁정 홈에서 갖추어져 전시되고 있다.한편으로 「시즈인가」에 부품을 제공한 7100은, 나에보 공장에서 해체되었다.
「의경」과「시즈인가」의 양 비행기는, 1952년에 도쿄에서 전시된 후, 가끔 재회 이벤트가 행해지고 있어 1968년(쇼와 43년), 1980년(쇼와 55년), 2002년(헤세이 14년)의 3도, 모두 홋카이도 철도 기념관에서 재회를 이루어 있다.
2010년 10월 14일에는 오타루시 종합 박물관에서 보존되고 있는 「시즈인가」도 철도 기념물에 승격했다.
2014년 3월 12일, 서일본 여객철도는 4월 6일로서 폐관하는 교통 과학박물관으로부터 매화 골목 증기기관차관에 이전하는 것에 즈음해, 「의경」을 다시 구내 운전이 가능한 상태에 복원한다고 발표한.동년 10월 무렵에 복원이 완료해, SL스팀호등으로 해서 구내 운전을 시킬 계획이 되고 있다.동년 10월 10일, 많은 철도 팬이 지켜보는 중, 「의경」은 그 웅장한 주행을 피로한.
차번에 관한 논쟁
본형식의 차량명판기재의 제조 번호에 근거하는 차번논쟁은, 홋카이도 대학에서 제조원의 H・K・포터사로부터의 운송장이 발견되어 「의경」=제조 번호 368이었던 것이 명확화했다.하지만 그 후도 밸브 기어등의 밑주위의 조사에 의해서, 7105로부터 「신광」을 나타내는 「643」을 주체로서 다른 기관차를 나타내는 각인이 복수 발견되었다.그 때문에
증기기관차는 D52형이나 C62형등의 갑관 실어 바꾸어의 예가 나타내 보이는 대로, 보일러는 교환되어도 차번은 변경되지 않고, 대 범위 균열등이 발생했을 경우에는 폐차가 되는 것부터, 차량으로서의 주체는 대 범위이다고 해, 7105는 「신광」이다.
소거법으로 주요 부품인 보일러가 제조 번호 368인 것은 확정하고 있어, 또 본형식은 차량의 출생 증명인 명판이 보일러에 첨부 되고 있었던 것이기 때문에, 보일러를 주라고 봐 7105는 「의경」이라고 해야 한다.
(이)라고 주장하는 양파에서 대립이 생겼다.
그러나 이 사실이 판명된 단계에서, 제조 번호 368의 밑주위를 가지고 있던 가능성이 있던 7102는 해체되어 버리고 있어 복원 스케줄이 임박하고 있던 적도 있어, 「 「의경」의 주요 부품(보일러)이 사용되고 있으니까, 「의경」에 복원해 지장없다」라는 판단으로, 7105가 「의경」으로서 복원되고 있다.
^악천후에 의해 소함의 도착이 늦었기 때문에, 「의경」은 선행의 보통 열차를 견인해, 소열차를 견인한 것은 「변경」이다고 하는 설도 있다.
그 후 자동차의 시동성, 타기 쉬움 등을 평가하는 관점으로부터 채용되었지만, 안전벨트를 장착하지 않고 스타트하는 드라이버가 도달해, 후방의 차량이 빨리 나와 혼란하는등 위험이 많은 것이 알려져 있었다.
1969년의 르・맨 24시간 레이스에 대해 재키・이크스가 스타트의 위험을 피하기 위해[주석 1]에 천천히 걸어 타기, 시트 포지션을 확인해, 안전벨트를 장착해, 정신적으로 안정되어, 다른 44대가 달려간 후에 출발한.이 때도 최초의 주회중에 존・울프(John Woolfe)가 타는 포르셰・917의 10호차가 메종・브란슈를 구부러지지 못하고 제방에 돌진해 존・울프가 사망하는 사고가 되고 있는.

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:
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.
Recently we have seen Cisco predict that busy hour global IP traffic will grow 4.6-fold (35% CAGR) from 2016 to 2021, reaching 4.3 Pb/s by 2021, compared to average Internet traffic that will grow 3.2-fold (26% CAGR) over the same period to reach 717 Tb/s by 2021. The latest edition of the Ericsson Mobility Report, released earlier this week, calculates that the total traffic in mobile networks increased by 70% between the end of Q1 2016 and the end of Q1 2017. And now, Nokia Bell Labs has just announced its own prediction: IP traffic will more than double in the next five years, reaching 330 exabytes per month by 2022 while growing at a 25% CAGR. The company anticipates that peak data rates will grow even faster at nearly 40% annually. Nokia Bell Labs also predicts that 3D/4K/UHD will experience a 4.79x growth from 2017 – 22, that wireless traffic will experience 7.5x growth from 2017 – 22, and that worldwide IoT devices to grow from 12bn in 2017 to 100bn in 2025.
Nokia unveils next gen networking processing engine
Nokia's processing engine sets the stage for perhaps the most significant announcement from the company since the merger of Alcatel-Lucent and Nokia Siemens Networks in 2015. In a press event entitled 'IP networks reimagined', Nokia unveiled its FP4 silicon, featuring the 'first' 2.4 Tbit/s network processor, up to 6x more powerful than processors currently available. The proprietary chipset is designed for a new class of petabit-class routers.
Core routers traditionally have been the 'big iron' that powers the heart of the Internet. It is a product category dominated by Cisco, Huawei, Juniper and Nokia, including via its existing 7950 XRS routing platform. However, the market has been in flux. Earlier this month, Dell’Oro Group reported a significant break in Q1 17 with Huawei taking the top spot from Cisco in the core router market for the first time. The report also found Huawei taking over second spot from Nokia in the SP edge router and CES market. The primary reason cited for this shift is that the SP core routing business is only growing at a low single-digit rate, while China Mobile is defying the trend with significant investments in their IP core backbone, for which Huawei is the lead supplier. Nevertheless, the overall predictions for rapid growth in IP traffic over the coming five years makes it more likely that service providers will need a significant refresh of their core backbones to handle hundreds of 100 or 400 Gbit/s connections at major nodes.
Nokia's previous generation FP3 chipset, unveiled by Alcatel-Lucent in June 2011 and launched in 2012, packed 288 RISC cores operating at 1 GHz and leveraged 40 nm process technology; the FP2 chipset offered 112 cores at 840 MHz and was built in 90 nm. This network processor lineage can be traced back to TiMetra Networks, a start-up based in Mountain View, California that launched its first carrier-class routing platforms in 2003.
TiMetra, which was headed by Basil Alwan, was acquired by Alcatel-Lucent later in 2003 for approximately $150 million in stock. The product line went on to become the highly successful 7450, 7750 and eventually 7950 carrier platforms - the basis for the IP division at Alcatel-Lucent. Not bad for an idea from a small start-up to grow into the star platform underpinning all of Alcatel-Lucent + Nokia Siemens Networks.
In a launch day webcast, Basil Alwan, now president of Nokia's IP/Optical Networks business group, said we are moving into a new phase of the Internet requiring 'cloud-scale routing'. First, he noted that there is market confusion between Internet-class routers and core data centre switches, which are being used to power the hyperscale infrastructure of the Internet content providers. High-end, data centre spine switches are capable of routing packets at high rates and can handle access control lists (ACLs). Likewise, conventional big iron core routers can switch data flows, and are sometimes deployed in data centres. However, there have been tradeoffs when this role reversal happens. Nokia's new FP4 chipset aims to fix that.
First multi-terabit NPU silicon
Six years have passed since the FP3, or roughly two cycles in the evolution of Moore's Law, so naturally one would expect the new silicon to be smaller, faster and more powerful and efficient. But Alwan said the company took its time to rethink how the packet processing works at the silicon level. To begin with, Nokia redesigned the onboard memory, employing 2.5D and 3D layouts on 16 nm Fin Field Effect Transistor (FinFET) technology. The single chip contains 22 dies, including memory stacks and control logic. It runs at 2.4 Tbit/s half-duplex, or 6x more capacity than the current generation 400 Gbit/s FP3 chipset. The FP4 will support full terabit IP flows. All conventional routing capabilities are included. Deep classification capabilities include enhanced packet intelligence and control, policy controls, telemetry and security.
The FP4 could be used to provide an in-service upgrade to Nokia's current line of core routers and carrier switches. It will also be used to power a new family of 7750 SR-s series routers designed for single-node, cloud scale density. In terms of specs, the SR-s boasts a 144 Tbit/s configuration supporting port densities of up to 144 future terabit links, 288 x 400 Gbit/s ports, or 1,440 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports. Absolute capacity could be doubled for a maximum of 288 Tbit/s configuration. It runs the same software as the company's widely-deployed systems. The first 7750 SR-s boxes are already running in Nokia labs and the first commercial shipments are expected in Q4.
Nokia is also introducing a chassis extension option to push its router into petabit territory. Without using the switching shelf concept employed in the multi-chassis designs of its competitors, Nokia is offering the means to integrate up to six of its 7750 SRS-s routers into a single system. This results in 576 Tbit/s of capacity, enough for densities of up to 2,880 x 100 GBE ports or 720 x 400 Gbit/s ports. Adding up the numbers, it is not truly petabit-class, but at 576 Tbit/s it is more than halfway there.
Network telemetry leads to security
Another interesting twist concerns security and petabit-class routing. In December 2016, Nokia agreed to acquire Deepfield, a start-up specialising in real-time analytics for IP network performance management and security. Deepfield, founded in 2011 and based in Ann Arbor, Michigan, has developed an analytics platform that identifies over 30,000 popular cloud applications and services. Its Internet Genome tracks how traffic runs to and through networks to reach subscribers, in real time, and without the need for probes, taps and monitors in the network itself. At the time of the deal, Nokia said it would integrate Deepfield big data analytics with the dynamic control capabilities of open SDN platforms, such as the Nokia Network Services Platform (NSP) and Nuage Networks Virtualized Services Platform (VSP).
Expanding on this idea, Alwan said Deepfield can really leverage the routers rather than probes to understand what is happening to the traffic. Fewer probes mean lower investment. More importantly, Deepfield could be used to track DDoS attacks passing through the core of the network rather than at the edge destination target. The new FP4 silicon is said to be a very good match for this application.
Huawei Marine, the joint venture between Huawei Technologies and UK-based Global Marine Systems, announced it has been contracted by China Unicom and Cameroon government-owned infrastructure operator Camtel to construct the South Atlantic Inter Link (SAIL), marking the official commencement of the SAIL cable system implementation phase.
Funded with investment from China Unicom and Camtel, the SAIL system will link Cameroon and Brazil and span around 6,000 km. The cable system will comprise 4 fibre pairs and offer a design capacity of 32 Tbit/s based on Huawei Marine’s advanced 100 Gbit/s technology.
The SAIL system will be the first direct access cable to connect Africa and South America, and on completion is designed to provide a reliable, high-quality intercontinental communications infrastructure between the two developing regions.
Huawei Marine originally announced that it had been commissioned to construct the Cameroon-Brazil cable system, initially called Cameroon-Brazil Cable System (CBCS), in October 2015.
Also in 2015, Huawei Marine announced it had started marine installation of the Nigeria-Cameroon Submarine Cable System (NCSCS), Cameroon's first wholly-owned submarine cable and part funded by the Cameroon government. Spanning around 1,100 km, the NCSCS directly connects Kribi in Cameroon with Lagos in Nigeria and will deliver 12.8 Tbit/s of capacity.
Camtel states that to date it has deployed more than 8,000 km of fibre that connects the ten regional chief towns in Cameroon, as well as around 60 divisional/sub-divisional chief towns and hundreds of rural communities; it also provides connectivity to CEMAC region countries including Chad. The company is aiming to build a network spanning over 20,000 km.

WEWANTSOUNDS are back with a superb selection of Spiritual Jazz and Funk grooves from legendary Producer BOB SHAD’s Mainstream Records catalogue. Many sought-after tracks here have never been reissued and will delight all the crate diggers worldwide.
Bob Shad was one of the greatest music producers of the 20th century, having worked with all the music giants you can think of, from Charlie Parker and Dizzy Gillespie to Sarah Vaughan, Lightnin' Hopkins, The Platters and Janis Joplin to name just a few. "Bobby Shad was a legend in our family" says his grandson Judd Apatow who, together with his sister Mia, still looks after Shad's back catalogue, Mainstream Records. Like his peers, jazz producers Creed Taylor and Bob Thiele, Shad went independent in the 60s and by the early 70s, he was producing a string of superb albums mixing Spiritual Jazz with Funk and Soul. These albums are now being rediscovered by new generation of Soul and Jazz lovers hooked on the music of Kamasi Washington and Shabaka Hutchings. Recorded between 1971 and 73, the Fender-Rhodes-drenched tracks on INNER PEACE showcase Shad's unique Deep Jazz sound. They feature such revered musicians as Harold Land, Roy Haynes and Frank Foster, together with a younger generation of talented musicians led by Buddy Terry, Dave Hubbard and LaMont Johnson. Here they are accompanied by the cream of 70s jazz session musicians including Bernard Purdie, Buster Williams, Eddie Henderson, Mtume, Stanley Clarke, and Cecil Bridgewater. The Mainstream catalogue has been sampled by a long list of revered DJs and Hip Hop producers over the years. Roy Haynes’ ‘Senyah’ was sampled by De La Soul on ‘Pony Ride’ and Shelly Manne’s short outro, ‘Infinity’ forms the unmissable backbone of Jeru The Damaja’s all-time Hip Hop classic, ‘Come Clean’. A fitting tribute to the supreme sound of producer Bob Shad. Wewantsounds will start a reissue program of original Mainstream albums with bonus material and rare photos from the vaults.

Free and open communication has long been an essential component of a successful democracy. Unfortunately, money, power and influence over time have stifled today’s media environment adversely impacting both content producers and consumers alike.
In an effort to democratize creative content, DECENT has officially launched its blockchain-based, global media distribution platform. The name is an acronym for Decentralized Network; Encrypted & Secure; Content Distribution System; Elimination of 3rd Parties; New Way of Online Publishing; Timestamped Data Records.
Designed to bring more transparency and fairness to the media industry, DECENT allows artists to seamlessly distribute digital content for immediate payment and without hefty fees. Peer-to-peer in its orientation, consumers decide the merits of a certain piece of content posted through a Yelp-like community rating system. The content, however, cannot be censored or removed.
This blockchain initiative endeavors to disrupt the legacy world of media distribution by allowing artists more freedom and control over the ownership and distribution of their content, all without compromising on security. It represents a potential gamechanger for the massive global media and content distribution industry — one that’s estimated to grow from $1.7 trillion in 2016 to over $2 trillion in 2019.
DECENT was founded in 2016 by two friends, Matej Michalko and Matej Boda, from Slovakia. It sprouted from a shared vision that blockchain technology could fuel a coordinated system of digital content publishing and sharing throughout the world.
Funding for DECENT was fueled by an ICO campaign last summer, which raised more than 5,881 BTC, at that time valued at $4.2 million USD. There were 4,300 ICO participants in total and no other key funding partners.
Michalko recounted the journey leading up to his own personal discovery of blockchain technology and its potential uses for the content distribution space. “I’ve been extensively involved in Bitcoin since 2011, even mining it from my own laptop at the beginning. I quickly realized that the innovative technology behind Bitcoin had the potential to change the modern world.”
When Michalko started to delve further into blockchain technology, he found a seemingly endless list of use cases the new technology could support. “I became determined to use blockchain technology to create something revolutionary that would be beneficial for people on a global scale. A short time later ongoing discussions between myself and our future co-founder Matej Boda quickly led to DECENT being born.”
He says that DECENT Network is a reaction to the issues that the majority of content producers face nowadays in the entertainment and media industry. “There is too much artificial complexity and too many barriers in the industry affecting both the access to market and income of the content owners.”
DECENT’S digital model allows artists to distribute any form of content, including written, music, videos, ebooks and pictures. These distribution channels are free of third-party influence, meaning that artists can also manage their intellectual property rights and set their own pricing.
One of the innovative adaptations that distinguishes DECENT from other blockchain platforms is the network’s reputation management system. This allows content creators who share their digital work on the platform to build a lifetime reputation, based on ratings from those who purchase content on the platform. DECENT Network also allows content creators to instantly receive payment when someone downloads their content, without any middleman interference.
Michalko believes that DECENT can break the trajectory in which a majority of power is concentrated in the hands of a few players controlling the industry. “Artists, filmmakers and writers lose control over their work and depend on the mercy of the ‘big guys.’ We designed DECENT Network to do away with all that and bring more transparency and fairness to the digital content industry.”
DECENT estimates that writers, for example, lose a healthy 30–75 percent chunk of their earnings when publishing with Amazon. Similarly, musicians, through licensing agreements, lose around 30 percent when selling a track on iTunes. Blockchain technology therefore serves as a mechanism that helps writers and musicians keep more money, while connecting with their audiences directly.
Michalko says that artists will be paid for their downloaded content through DECENT’s own cryptocurrency called “DCT,” which will be launched together with DECENT Network. Other payment options, he says, will be available in the future. “Artists will no longer have to wait months before seeing a penny from their work. And at the time of launch, DECENT Network will be a completely free-of-charge service for artists.”
Michalko hopes that by 2020, DECENT Network will have become the number one worldwide media sharing platform. “We hope to bring more transparency and fairness to the digital content industry for both creators and consumers. I hope that with our launch people will realize the advantage of DECENT Network over other content distribution platforms.”

The White House tried to silence criticism of US President Donald Trump by threatening television anchors Joe Scarborough and Mika Brzezinski with an unflattering story in a supermarket tabloid, the two allege, as the war of words between the pair and the president escalates.
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.
Here is the NY Times article I mentioned:
And s skeptical rejoinder:
What's your take?
With newly reinvented staging and stunning scenic design, this new version of PHANTOM, one of the most successful musicals of all-time, is performed by a cast and orchestra of 52, making this one of the largest productions on tour.
Beginning July 18, at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver, British Columbia, Kristie Dale Sanders will play the role of 'Madame Giry.' On July 26, Eva Tavares will take over the role of 'Christine Daaé' at the Northern Alberta Jubilee Auditorium in Edmonton, Alberta.
Eva Tavares hails from Vancouver, BC and trained at the UBC Opera Program and the Banff/Citadel Theatre Professional Training Program. Credits include the world premiere of Sousatzka, West Side Story and A Little Night Music. Her choreography has been seen most recently in Die Fledermaus (Vancouver Opera).
Kristie Dale Sanders has been seen on Broadway in Cabaret, Evita, Next Fall, Urinetown and The Phantom of the Opera. Off-Broadway: Dream of the Burning Boy; Johnny Guitar; A Class Act; Hello Muddah, Hello Fadduh. She can also be seen on "All My Children" and "The Wire."
The current company continues performances at the INB Performing Arts Center now through July 9, 2017 with Katie Travis as 'Christine Daaé' and Anne Kanengeiser as 'Madame Giry,' then onwards to Vancouver, British Columbia at the Queen Elizabeth Theatre July 12-23, 2017.
Andrew Lloyd Webber said, "Having received great critical acclaim in the U.K. and North America, I am really pleased that Laurence Connor's new production of PHANTOM will continue to tour the U.S. playing in tandem with the Broadway production which soon celebrates 30 years."
Cameron Mackintosh said, "With PHANTOM still the reigning champion as the longest-running production on Broadway after 29 phenomenal years, with no end in sight, I'm delighted that this spectacular new production of PHANTOM has been as well-received in the U.S. as the brilliant original and has already been seen by over 2.5 million people across North America since it opened in November 2013. With an exciting new design and staging, retaining Maria Björnson's amazing costumes, the new PHANTOM is thrilling audiences and critics alike all over again.

After 14 hours of intense prayers and a massive operation by police and army for the safe return of San Fernando businessman Gregory Laing, he was set free by his captors in the Beetham Gardens last evening.
The T&T Guardian learned that Laing was released following the payment of a ransom and was picked up by the Anti-Kidnapping Unit (AKU) on the roadside around 5.05 pm. ACP Irwin Hackshaw said Laing was then taken to the Eric Williams Medical Science Complex in Mt Hope for a check-up. Investigators said he had minor bruises to the face and was to be interviewed and taken back to his home in St Joseph Village, San Fernando, last evening.
Up to last night, there was a large contingent of police and soldiers combing the Laventille and Beetham Garden districts searching for suspects.
Laing, 54, whose family owns the popular Puff N Stuff Bakery along Circular Road, Vistabella and the Trade Winds Hotel in St Joseph Village, was the latest of three south business owners to be kidnapped in recent years. Designer Kirby Mohammed and produce importer Caroline Katwaroo were both kidnapped 2015 while hair stylist Ria Sookdeo was taken in 2016. Those three victims were never found and ransoms were not demanded.
Yesterday around 3 am, police said Laing went to open the bakery so staff could begin preparations for the 6 am opening. Around 3.10 am, one of his employees arrived and saw his Mercedes Benz at the side of the building with a cell phone and a bunch of keys on the ground. One of his brothers reported to police that around 4 am he received a phone call from someone demanding a ransom of $270,000 for his safe return. The call was said to have originated from the Beetham Gardens area.
A party of officers from the San Fernando CID and Mon Repos Police Station, led by Insp Don Gajadhar, responded and statements were taken from a few people. Laing’s car was taken to the Mon Repos Police Station for processing. There were no CCTV cameras nearby and police said they were not able to get a description of possible suspects or the vehicle used in the kidnapping. They suspect he was held up at the business and taken away.
Following the kidnapping, DCP Harold Phillip called a meeting of senior officers, which included Snr Supt Boxhill, ASP Ajit Persad, Snr Supt Mohammed, Insp Gajadhar and officers from the Port-of-Spain Division, Southern Division, AKU and the T&T Defence Force.
There were several social media reports that Laing was found earlier in the day, but Hackshaw confirmed he was only found around 5.05 pm. He said police had aggressively pursued all leads in an effort to safely return Laing to his family. Relatives and staff declined to speak about his disappearance earlier in the day, saying it was at a sensitive stage. However, it was business as usual as the bakery remained open. San Fernando Mayor Junia Regrello, however, condemned the “reprehensible actions” by Laing’s kidnappers.
Regrello said while the city has mostly avoided the brunt of criminal activity in T&T, the kidnapping further galvanized the need for all citizens to take back the city. He called on citizens who may have information regarding the kidnapping to contact the San Fernando police and pass on any information.
“Mr Laing is one of San Fernando’s model business owners and is noted for providing employment to many of the citizens of San Fernando, while the charitable contributions of his company are a testament to Mr Laing’s dedication towards the city of San Fernando,” Regrello said.
The gruesome murders of 13-year-old Videsh Subar and his 56-year-old sitter Rose Mohammed have impacted on Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley, so much so that it has left him very disturbed and shaken.
Speaking at yesterday’s post-Cabinet media briefing, Rowley said he hoped the T&T Police Service can bring the perpetrators of the killings before the courts expeditiously.
The throats of Subar and Mohammed were slit by their killers at Mohammed’s Ajim Baksh Street, Malabar home on Wednesday during a home invasion.
Yesterday, Rowley said there were some new developments taking place in the country, some of which were not uplifting and disturbing.
“I am very, very shaken and disturbed with what happened in the East with that child and its guardian who were so brutally murdered, and it makes us wonder what kind of people we have become,” said Rowley, his voice dropping as he spoke.
Saying it is now standard practice that when violent and heinous crimes are committed there is a public demand that the Government do something about crime, Rowley said “that demand is understandable because people want to feel safe, people want to feel secure and people want to know that their families and their communities are protected from these things.”
The PM said the interventions by individuals who make a decision to carry out such activities “shock us all the time.” He said whatever the Government has in place, be it prison, police or court “we are always surprised by these kinds” of murders.
In extending condolences to the family of the victims, Rowley said just looking at the grief on television as a citizen, he was quite “shaken by this kind of thing and I trust that the law enforcement authorities would find the perpetrators of such heinous and disturbing action.”
Asked about the TTPS’ ineffectiveness in its battle against the criminal elements and he could do to fill the gap, Rowley replied, “That is one area where you do not have an alternative. There is no alternative but to keep working and improving the ability of law enforcement in the country. And law enforcement in our country under the Constitution is largely the Police Service.”
In the area of national security, Rowley disclosed that Cabinet took a decision not to pay $200 million to maintain for one year four of the country’s helicopters.
“This is a cost that has been negotiated downward I was told. US$34 million I was told. We just can’t afford that! If we can’t afford it then the helicopters would stay on the ground… much as we would like to have them in the air. If we have $200 million dollars, the question that arises is that the best way to spend $200 million in the fight against crime?”
He said selling the helicopters was one option the Government may look at.

The Integrity Commission has not yet completed its investigations into Port-of-Spain South Member of Parliament Marlene McDonald, who will be sworn in as the new Minister of Public Utilities today.
While McDonald has been cleared on part of the matters brought before the commission, the T&T Guardian was told by a source close to the body that “while a number of allegations have been dealt with, there are other things still being investigated.”
The information comes even as Prime Minister Dr Keith Rowley welcomed McDonald back to his Cabinet yesterday, saying the Integrity Commission had found she was not in breach of the Integrity in Public Life Act in relation to some of the issues under probe.
In March 2006, McDonald was relieved of the post of Minister of Housing after it was reported that the Integrity Commission was investigating two reports brought against her, involving a close friend by the name of Michael Carew.
Those investigations related to the approval of grants to the Calabar Foundation by the Ministry of Community Development and to the issuance of a Housing Development Corporation home.
While the commission is reported to have written to McDonald indicating that there was no evidence that she had breached the Integrity in Public Life Act, the commission, in its correspondence, also indicated that investigations into other allegations contained in the complaint are “still receiving its attention.”
Integrity Commission chairman Zainool Hosein yesterday refused to answer questions on what matters involving McDonald were still under investigation. He said, “If anybody who is in receipt of communication from the commission wants to divulge it, we have no way to prevent that, but I cannot give details of any matter before the commission.”
The commission is bound to silence under sections 20 and 35 of the Integrity in Public Life Act. Both sections speak to the issues of secrecy and confidentiality of information and carries, in the case of section 20, a fine of $250,000 and 10 years imprisonment, while persons in breach of section 35 are liable on summary conviction to a fine of $250,000 and imprisonment for five years.
Speaking on the broad issues of the work of the commission, however, Hosein said they had “inherited a number of issues, we have dealt with a range of matters and we have functioned without much trauma, we are working quietly and efficiently in dealing with quite a number of matters and people can rely on absolute fairness.”
He said when there are delays in “concluding matters, it is because the investigation is not complete and that could be the result of a want of information being sought.”
In conducting its investigations, the T&T Guardian was told, the commission liaises with banks and financial institutions and very often the information required is not available immediately. The process could be further delayed when someone being investigated seeks legal advice, which delays the process.
In a statement to the media earlier yesterday, the commission said “all matters relative to Investigations and Compliance are thoroughly investigated, but statutory strictures on the disclosure of specific matters preclude the commission or anyone there-at from divulging information from its records.”
It said “in assessing and investigating allegations of breaches of the Integrity In Public Life Act (the IPLA) and the Prevention of Corruption Act, the commission remains focussed and committed to carrying out its functions thoroughly, efficiently, fairly and within a reasonable time-frame.”
While the records of the commission and any information revealed by the production of documents cannot be disclosed, the commission urged media practitioners to avoid making “unsupported statements and to consult the commission’s annual report which provides a summary of complaints which have engaged the attention of the commission.”
The commission said it “remains concerned that irresponsible and adverse criticisms by media practitioners are injurious, especially when not supported by factual details.”
The commission said it continues to facilitate dialogue and offer an accessible, courteous, efficient and meaningful guidance to persons in public life as well as to those exercising public functions.
It reminded persons subject to the Integrity In Public Life Act to comply with the provisions, cooperate fully by filing declarations in a timely manner and to provide information promptly when called upon to do so.
The commission’s 29th annual report, laid in Parliament in 2016, lists 41 investigations. At least four of them date back to the pre-2010 period relating to complaints against a former prime minister Patrick Manning, now deceased, alleging breaches of the act in the award of land and the construction of the Church of the Lighthouse. Those investigations, according to the document, are still continuing.

Ships in the Sky: The Story of the Great Dirigibles (New York: Henry Holt; London: F. Muller, 1957)
Pulitzer Prize-winning historian John Willard Toland was born in La Crosse, Wisconsin on this day in 1912.
"A hybrid of Prometheus and Lucifer.” --from ADOLF HITLER: THE DEFINITIVE BIOGRAPHY by John Toland
Toland's classic, definitive biography of Adolf Hitler remains the most thorough, readable, accessible, and, as much as possible, objective account of the life of a man whose evil effect on the world in the twentieth century will always be felt. Toland’s research provided one of the final opportunities for a historian to conduct personal interviews with over two hundred individuals intimately associated with Hitler. At a certain distance yet still with access to many of the people who enabled and who opposed the führer and his Third Reich, Toland strove to treat this life as if Hitler lived and died a hundred years before instead of within his own memory.
"He was learning how to appeal to the basic needs of the average German ... His 'basic values and aims' were as reassuring as they were acceptable. His listeners could not possibly know that the 'reasonable' words were a mask for one of the most radical programs in the history of mankind, a program that would alter the map of Europe and affect the lives, in one way or another, of most of the people on Earth." - John Toland, Adolf Hitler

En prévision du long week-end qui vient se terminer, j'avais mis dans mon panier des légumes plus ou moins "oubliés" - oubliés de la liste des courses, surtout - que je n'ai pas toujours le temps de cuisiner d'habitude. Ou en tout cas, c'est ce que je me dis, et il faut croire que j'ai tort (pour une fois ;) hehe !). Parce que finalement, éplucher et couper des topinambours ne prend pas plus de temps qu'éplucher et râper des carottes... Sans parler d'une patate douce : avec un beau spécimen, on obtient déjà pas mal de matière ! Je suis donc moins bête en ce lundi matin : je vais continuer à varier mon panier de courses de la semaine, sans me contenter des sempiternels carottes, poireaux et fenouil que je prends sans réfléchir d'habitude... Après le céleri-rave, la patate douce et les topinambours sont donc réabilités sur ma liste ! D'autant que ces légumes sont vraiment délicieux en veloutés bien chauds et douillets.
People with family members who were killed by undocumented immigrants meet with Attorney General Jeff Sessions on June 29, 2017.
On Thursday, the House passed the No Sanctuary for Criminals Act, which proposes to withhold federal funding from localities that refuse to cooperate with Trump administration immigration measures aimed at criminal noncitizens and other undocumented people. The bill would also allow individuals and close family members of individuals who are victims of felonies committed by undocumented immigrants who have been released from local or state custody against the advice of federal authorities to file suit against states.
The day before, New Orleans Mayor Mitch Landrieu, the new president of the U.S. Conference of Mayors, called on Congress to work on bipartisan immigration and criminal justice law reforms, adding that cities could use more federal assistance to fight terrorism and crime, and provide mental illness, substance abuse, and reentry programs.
Landrieu said in a letter to House members that local leaders do not want their law enforcement officers involved in federal immigration detention activities, nor do they want to be put in legal jeopardy for possible violations of the Fourth Amendment’s prohibitions against unreasonable searches and seizures. (A related bill known as Kate’s Law would establish new mandatory minimum prison terms for deported criminals who return to the United States.)
The sanctuary cities battle, like so many of Trump’s hastily conceived and poorly executed policies, appears headed for another showdown, either when the bills arrive in the Senate, or, in the unlikely event that the upper chamber drums up the 60 votes needed to approve them, almost certainly in the courts.
While the Trumpian turmoil is new, past presidents’ attempts to compel localities to comply with federal policies have met with mixed success. A new report, “Reagan vs. Cities: The 20th Century Battle Over South African Apartheid & Lessons for the Trump Era,” from Jobs to Move America and the Center for Media and Democracy, details the 40th president’s efforts to stamp out the U.S. anti-apartheid movement by several means, including denying federal funds to cities and states that took actions against companies that did business in South Africa.
The report explores the mixed outcomes for two cities that sought to stand their ground against this federal overreach. In 1984, the U.S. Department of Transportation, with the backing of the Justice Department, threatened New York City with the loss of transportation dollars unless the city revoked a local ordinance preventing city officials from contracting with businesses that operated in South Africa or used materials from the country. Although Mayor Ed Koch complained all the way up to President Ronald Reagan, the feisty New Yorker finally backed down, declined to take the matter to the courts, and finally reworked the measure to satisfy federal officials and preserve the city’s federal funding.
Two years later, Baltimore, which had crafted a local ordinance requiring city pension funds to divest $1.1 billion from entities that did business with South Africa, also came under fire. The trustees of the pensions funds and the funds’ beneficiaries (who feared significant financial losses in the short timeframe the funds had to comply with the divestment ordinance) joined forces to take the city to court.
The State Department and the National Security Council submitted briefs supporting the trustees and beneficiaries. But Baltimore ultimately prevailed in the state courts, and the Supreme Court decided not to hear the case. By 1991, nearly 100 cities in 28 states had taken a variety of actions against companies doing business in South Africa.
Although an early attempt by Trump to deny federal funding to sanctuary cities was roundly criticized as unconstitutional (the president aimed to usurp powers granted to Congress) and ultimately blocked by a federal judge, Republicans in Congress have stepped up to take their turn at the issue. Federal courts likely will have the final word on whether the federal government can compel states to assist in immigration enforcement activities or whether such provisions infringe on state powers.
Congress can indeed attach conditions to funding, especially if the funding is related to a specific purpose like law enforcement. Since the Supreme Court has indicated its willingness to consider wider immigration questions like those posed by the administration’s travel ban, it is unlikely that the high court would decline to weigh in, as it did in the Baltimore pension funds question.
Like the anti-apartheid activists, sanctuary cities supporters may find that public response to the crisis may compel different responses from Washington. Grassroots efforts to protect undocumented people have sprouted up all over the country; nearly 650 of the country’s more than 3,000 counties have placed limitations on local law enforcement assistance to federal immigration detention efforts.
But the support for such measures is far from solid in the country at large. Lawmakers in more than 30 states have introduced bills to curb cities’ abilities to weigh in on immigration enforcement. A new Gallup poll shows that Americans’ interests in decreasing the numbers of immigrants admitted to the country have not shifted dramatically.
The “Reagan vs. Cities” report also notes that in addition to cutting off federal funds and other measures, Trump’s tactics include “a public relations strategy aimed at vilifying opponents.” The court of public opinion, however, isn’t always malleable. Reagan may have been the “great communicator,” but he was mostly unable to compel cities and states to abandon divestment and other economic strategies aimed at crippling South African apartheid. Trump, if anything, is more of a great alienator than communicator, who will ultimately run up against the numerical impossibility of deporting millions of undocumented people.
If you've any love for Valkyria Chronicles, an affair likely started with Sega's 2008 original which saw Skies of Arcadia director Shuntaro Tanaka injecting some of that same breeziness into an exquisite tactical RPG, you'll likely already know how the story goes. How Sega's own 2010 sequel was confined to the PlayStation Portable, and another follow-up in 2011 from developer Media.Vision was confined further still to Japan only, with an official localisation never forthcoming. How Media.Vision was given another crack at the series with an action-based spin-off, and how it released to fairly dismal reviews in Japan earlier this year.
Six months later, following a noble localisation effort from Sega and Deep Silver, I can only confirm what you likely already know. Valkyria Revolution is not a good video game. And how.
Last week, Title IX – the 1972 legal provision which prevents sex and gender-based discrimination in education – turned 45 years old. In honor of the anniversary, feminist groups briefed Congress on the victories Title IX has won, as well as the ways in which the law continues to fall short.
The JCSI's remit is just to check that secondary legislation is empowered by earlier primary legislation- a constutional check that the executive is not bypassing full parliament scrutiny. Its not within their remit to look at the merits of the actual legislation.
The commons & Lords committees can look at the merits but as it says in the summary
" this Order implements the provisions of an international agreement to which the UK is obliged to give effect"
Parliament has already approved the relevant international agreement (PPI) and has already granted the executive power to ratify the UPCA.
@Silence: The fate of the suspended BoA member is only inderectly known. He's still suspended. His contract has not been renewed, like his colleagues contracts. He's on a disciplinary measure, without disciplinary procedure. Guess how ATILO will find that? But the contract has ended, and ATILO will be okay with the job loss.
I sincerely hope his mental health survives, because how the AC treats _their_ employee is mind-bogging.
Mr. Ernst is a lawyer, he should know better how to treat employees with a contract, even difficult employees. I hope once he's officially in charge, he'll have a good look at the case, and find a way out. This case is extremely disgraceful for all concerned, especially EPO management and the AC. But, seeing how the new Codexchanges were waved through ("to get it off the table"), and DE voting in favour (only four abstentions: NL, IT, IE, LI), I fear the constitutional court in Germany will finally say a word about a lack of independence and power abuse inside the EPO, and a lack of supervision...
This whole situation is like a fight: too many people are watching and waiting for someone else to step in.
The one advantage with FR and DE voting in favour is, that if their nationals get fired, tehy might have a chance with national courts and get a job in the national administration due to gross violation of their countries' law by the delegate, and the duty of care springing forth from this case. And if someone wins against their state, guess how the delegates will react next AC meeting?
As I understand it ratification itself is not needed until 3 months (plus one day) before the UPC becomes fully operational.
As alluded to in Alexander Ramsay's message, at this point the source of delay is not ratifications of the UPCA per se, but that the inability to start the provisional application phase which should last at least 6 months before the UPC becomes fully operational.
In relation to actions from the UK, the provisional application phase can be kicked off by providing a notification that the UK has parliamentary approval to ratify rather than by actual ratification. Presumably this means only steps 1+2 need to be completed and that steps 3+4 could be completed during the first 3 months of the provisional application phase.

Anyone that has worked with me for any length of time or whom I have managed knows that, at some point, I will ask them, “Who’s your customer?” Anybody that does work has a customer, but few people really think about who their customer really is, or even think in terms of having customers.
Let me be clear: I’m not talking about your company’s customer, the business or individual to whom your company sells goods or services. I’m talking about your customer, as an individual employee, as a team member, or as a manager.
I’ll use myself as an example. At SolidFire, I ran the demand generation function. The role of demand gen is to develop leads for sales to pursue. As such, we had two primary customers: inside sales, who would receive and pursue our leads; and the campaigns team, for whom we managed several (mostly) digital channels through which to execute their campaigns. We had secondary customers, like field marketing, who would generate leads through field events that we would upload, process, and deliver to sales. As a manager, the members of my team were also my customers, and there are also other customer relationships that I maintained in that role.
What’s the value of considering those teams, campaigns and inside sales, as customers, rather than simple collaborative teams or stakeholders in our activities? Because the concept of a customer carries with it a set of expectations that are richer, deeper, and more meaningful than a mere collaborative relationship, and those expectations lead to better outcomes for everyone involved.
Here’s an example. At one point, we started hearing rumors that sales was dissatisfied with some types of leads we were providing, even though we believed these were quality leads. The tension between marketing and sales is a common situation, so it wasn’t surprising to hear this. But if we could break down this barrier, both teams could be much more successful in their efforts.
There are a lot of ways I could have handled this problem, but I decided to view the problem through the lens of a customer-supplier relationship. If we were a supplier to sales as a customer, a common role in that relationship is the customer success manager (CSM), whose job is to ensure that the customer is successful in using the supplier’s product or services. The CSM role is bilateral: she represents the supplier’s product to the customer, helping them use it properly and fully; and she is the voice of the customer to the supplier, helping guide product development to better serve the needs of the customer.
We needed the equivalent function between demand gen and inside sales, so we created a CSM type of role and, in fact, we hired an inside salesperson to staff it. In this role, our CSM (I think we called him a marketing sales coordinator) had a bilateral role: he represented marketing to the inside sales team, explaining different types of leads, why they received them, and how they should pursue them; and represented the sales environment to marketing, describing which types of leads were working best or worst, and why, enabling marketing to optimize their campaign efforts.
The result of this change was dramatic. Inside sales came to view demand gen, and the broader marketing team, as partners in their success. Sales acceptance rates of marketing leads increased, and sales qualification rates of accepted leads improved. Would we have achieved the same result by having a more traditional approach of trying to collaborate between these two teams? Maybe, but I doubt it. In the same way that customers and suppliers generally don’t achieve a truly collaborative relationship, marketing and sales frequently struggle to truly collaborate. By establishing a role whose entire job is to ensure sales’ success, that changes the relationship measurably.
So, have you started to ask yourself who your customers are in your job? Does it change how you think about your interworking relationships? Try it. It can be powerful.

Esattamente trent’anni fa esplodeva l’ultima grande rivoluzione del
rock, fatta di poche, povere cose, di chitarre suonate al massimo
volume e pantaloni strappati, di spille da balia e urla, di sogni
infranti e di nessuna speranza. Era il punk, pronto ad abbattere il
vecchio rock e a farlo rinascere di nuovo, sotto la spinta di gruppi
come i Sex Pistols e i Clash, con la poesia di Patti Smith e dei
Television, con l’intelligenza dei Dead Kennedys e l’energia dei
Ramones. Una musica ruvida e forte, splendidamente imprecisa e al
tempo stesso magnificamente indipendente. L’ultima fiammata degli anni
Settanta verrà raccontata da Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo in
“Lezioni di Rock”.
Una discoteca ideale? Troppo difficile da realizzare, troppi sono i
dischi importanti di questo mezzo secolo che ci separa dall'arrivo di
Elvis Presley sulla scena. Meglio allora concentrare la nostra
attenzione su un piccolo gruppo di dischi senza i quali non è
possibile comprendere il rock, senza i quali nessuna discoteca è degna
di questo nome, senza i quali non si può ragionevolmente dire di aver
vissuto. Ogni domenica mattina alle ore 11.00 al Teatrostudio, Ernesto
Assante e Gino Castaldo vi accompagneranno alla scoperta, all'ascolto,
alla visione di un album imperdibile della storia del rock. Una visita
guidata nel pentagramma delle note degli autori che hanno scritto la
storia del rock e che ogni domenica torneranno a suonare per gli
appassionati delle più stravaganti lezioni che l'Auditorium propone.

Le tre “J” maledette del rock, Jim, Jimi e Janis, sono unite
nell’immaginario collettivo dall’elemento del loro dramma personale.
Ma erano tre musicisti estremamente diversi l’uno dall’altro. Poeta il
primo, visionario il secondo. E poi c’era lei, Janis Joplin.
Solitaria, travolgente, bluesy, drammaticamente espressiva, con una
voce in grado di graffiare l’anima e di colpire il cuore, Janis Joplin
è stata (assieme a Grace Slick) la prima grande donna della storia del
rock, in grado di stravolgere le regole non scritte dello show
business e di riscriverle, in grado di cantare il blues come una nera
e il rock come nessun’altra. Ernesto Assante e Gino Castaldo, domenica
26 aprile, alle ore 11 al Teatrostudio, vi presenteranno “Pearl”, il
suo album “testamento”, uscito dopo la sua morte, il disco più bello e
affascinante della produzione di Janis Joplin.
