          Pier 1 Imports stock sinks as revenue misses target    

Shares of Pier 1 Imports Inc. cratered in Wednesday's extended session after the retailer missed Wall Street's revenue estimate. Pier 1 reported its first-quarter loss narrowed $3 million, or 4 cents a share, from $6 million, or 7 cents a share, a year earlier. Revenue fell to $409.5 million from $418.4 million. Analysts surveyed by FactSet had forecast a loss of 5 cents a share on revenue of $421 million. Same-store sales, on a constant currency basis, were flat but online sales, accounting for about a quarter of net sales, rose 23%. Pier 1 shares tumbled 19% after hours.

          The Other Incumbent Rule   

LA CROSSE, Wis.—The past six years have not been kind to political rules of thumb. During the primary season, a candidate who leads in both the polls and in fund raising on Jan. 1 is supposed to be guaranteed the nomination. Ask Howard Dean about that one. In the general election, the national popular vote is supposed to coincide with the vote in the Electoral College. Ask Al Gore how that went. And during midterm congressional elections, the president's party is supposed to lose seats in the House. About that one, ask Bill Clinton and George W. Bush.

The next political axiom to be tested will be polling's "incumbent rule," which dictates that undecided voters break overwhelmingly for the challenger on Election Day. (Another way to put it is that an incumbent president's polling number typically equals or exceeds the percentage share of the vote he'll receive.) Because most final state polls show President Bush polling below 50 percent in nearly every swing state, history is on John Kerry's side Tuesday. But recent elections have shown that past performance is no guarantee of future results.

What's more, if the election turns out to be close, there's another way incumbency could be the determining factor in the election, as Randy Broz, a Democratic strategist and fund-raiser for House candidates, pointed out to me last week. This rule, call it the "other incumbent rule," favors President Bush. In the unlikely scenario of "another Florida"—litigation or just a long recount in a decisive state—the president, by virtue of his incumbency, will hold a decisive public-relations advantage. During the 2000 recount, Republicans cried that Al Gore was trying to "steal the election" from Bush based on nothing more than the fact that the TV networks had declared Bush the winner on Election Night. Had Bush been a sitting president, the outcry would have been more persuasive. Trying to oust a wartime incumbent through litigation would be nearly impossible.

Kerry will need to win clearly and convincingly at the ballot box in order to unseat Bush, and for what it's worth, most reporters seem to think that he's going to do it. The Kerry campaign staff is confident, and it appears to be genuine, rather than bluster. "I never told anyone in 2000 that Al Gore was going to win by 6 points," Bob Shrum—taking a shot at Karl Rove's record in election forecasting—told reporters on the campaign plane. For the past week or two, the campaign has spoken confidently of winning "big states"—presumably Florida, Ohio, and Pennsylvania—that would assure Kerry the presidency.

By Monday evening, reporters from news organizations that have colleagues traveling with Bush started saying that the Bush folks have clammed up, or that they seem unusually tight. Kerry's final events had a giddy air. The traveling press credentials for the night's last "major rally" in Cleveland featured a head shot of longtime Kerry spokesman David Wade, who gladly autographed a few. To the New York Daily News reporter, he wrote, "At least you're not the Post." And to the New York Post, he tweaked the paper's veep "scoop" by writing, "Go Kerry-Gephardt!" I heard rumors of, but did not witness, a dancing Mike McCurry. I even read it as a sign of confidence that traveling press secretary Allison Dobson was eager to join a proposed Electoral College betting pool. Teresa Heinz Kerry's slightly unusual political talk in Cleveland—about an America that is "young" and "imperfect" but "growing," and how Kerry knows America's "thorny parts" as well its idealism—came across as charming rather than ludicrous.

In Toledo, at a midnight rally that Kerry dubbed "the first stop of Election Day," Gen. Tony McPeak criticized the Bush administration for wrapping itself in the flag to hide its "incompetence." "You wanna shoot 'em, you gotta put a hole in the flag," McPeak said. "We got a guy in John Kerry who stands in front the flag. He says, you gonna hurt that flag, you're gonna have to run through me."

When Kerry arrived here in La Crosse for a photo op at 1:25 a.m. Central time, a man in the crowd held aloft a scrawled sign reading, "Tomorrow Is Here, President Kerry." Kerry leapt into the crowd of a couple hundred people, clutching and grabbing and high-fiving hands. He seemed to realize that this was it, his last full day as a presidential campaigner. Just a couple weeks ago in Des Moines during a joint appearance with John Edwards, Kerry had walked down a catwalk next to his running mate, who was reaching down into the crowd enthusiastically with both hands. Kerry, by comparison, touched a voter's hand only occasionally, and only at the end of the walk did he extend both arms to clasp hands with anyone. This time, Kerry eagerly embraced the throng for 20 minutes, perhaps not ready for this day to end.

Predictions are dangerous, but I'll make one: Tuesday night, the incumbent rule holds, and on Jan. 20, we'll have a new incumbent.

          China may target slower economic growth: media   
This file photo shows a woman riding her tricycle, loaded with polystyrene boxes, in Shanghai. China might set an annual economic growth target below 8.0 percent for this year, state media said, as the leaders of the world's second largest economy acknowledge it is slowing.

03 March 2012
AFP News

China might set an annual economic growth target below 8.0 percent for this year, state media said, as the leaders of the world's second largest economy acknowledge it is slowing.

The report in the official Shanghai Securities News came before Chinese Premier Wen Jiabao delivers an annual policy address to lawmakers on Monday, when he is due to announce economic goals for the year.

China's economy expanded by 9.2 percent last year, slowing from 10.4 percent in 2010, as global turbulence and efforts to tame high inflation put the brakes on growth.

"An economic growth rate adjusted down to around 7.5 percent will not have any impact on economic development," the newspaper quoted Li Guozhang, an academic at Lanzhou University and member of an advisory body to the National People's Congress, or legislature, as saying.


China typically exceeds the annual growth target unveiled every March at the parliament session, and most economists are predicting GDP growth of 8.0-8.5 percent for China this year.

The 2011 increase in gross domestic product was well above the government's 8.0 percent target.

In a bid to counter slowing exports, the government has cut reserve requirements for banks twice in the last three months to increase lending and give the economy a boost.

Investment bank Goldman Sachs has forecast China will set a lower GDP growth target of 7.5 percent at the legislative meeting, but said that implied the government was willing to accept slower growth.

"A slightly lower GDP growth target rate is sensible given the fall in the level of potential GDP growth," Goldman said Friday in a research report.

"It can also be viewed as a gesture from the central government that local governments should not focus solely on the pace of GDP growth."

China has sought to prod local governments to focus on the quality of growth instead of its speed, while also seeking to shift away from dependence on exports to other engines such as domestic consumption.

China could target containing inflation to less than 4.0 percent this year at the upcoming congress, the Shanghai Securities News said, amid worries surging prices could spark social unrest.

For all of 2011, China's consumer price inflation was 5.4 percent, official figures showed, well above the government's full-year target of 4.0 percent and higher than the 2010 rate of 3.3 percent.

          Melding science and tradition to tackle climate change   

In the latest of several partnerships between tradition and modern science aimed at improving resilience to climate change, pastoralists and meteorologists in Tanzania are working together to produce weather forecasts better suited to farmers.

The hope is that by drawing from both indigenous knowledge and contemporary weather forecasting techniques, crop yields could be increased.

“We wanted to see if the two can complement or supplement each other,” Isaac Yonah, a senior officer coordinating community meetings employed by the Tanzania Meteorological Agency (TMA), told IRIN by phone.

Using traditional indicators such as the movement of red ants, the flowering of mango and other trees, the migration of termites and patterns and colours in the sky, farmers in Sakala village of Ngorongoro District compare their two-weekly forecasts with those released by the TMA.

“This is done… to validate how accurate their forecast is and to come up with a consensus [forecast]. In the last three seasons, more than 80 percent accuracy in the findings has been witnessed,” said Yonah.

The project is a partnership between TMA, Hakikazi Catalyst (a non-profit organization), and the UK-based International Institute for Environment and Development (IIED).

“Strengthening such practices could enhance the resilience of communities which are most vulnerable to climate change. Upscaling the projects will see the knowledge gap between traditional and scientific bridged,” said Yonah.

Research published in Uganda in 2013 detailed 23 different indicators used by traditional forecasters to predict weather.

“Farmers would profit from weather forecasts provided by governmental institutions. This [marriage of the old and new] will enable farmers to make sound decisions on how to fully exploit the seasonal distribution of rainfall to improve and stabilize crop yields,” said Joshua Okonyo, author of the study Indigenous Knowledge of Seasonal Weather Forecasting.

The indicators cited included wind direction, cuckoo calls, and the timing of winged termites’ departure from their nests.

Working with the Nganyi community in Kenya

For the past five years in Kenya, government meteorologists have worked with the Nganyi community in the west of the country in a project carried out in collaboration with the Intergovernmental Authority on Development (IGAD) Climate Prediction and Application Centre (ICPAC).

The Nganyi observe bird migrations and other animal behaviour in their forecasts.

“After thorough research, we have noticed that these traditional indicators have a high scientific value that could be integrated with the local climate information,” said Laban Ogallo, the project’s coordinator.

“Since predicting weather within the tropics is a challenge to scientists, we wanted to learn how the [Nganyi] community has been doing it over the years. Their knowledge will be helpful,” Abraham Changara, chief meteorologist at the Kenya Meteorological Department, told IRIN.

As meteorologists are waking up to the value of traditional forecasting methods in adapting to climate change, it seems climate change itself poses a threat to the sustainability of these methods.

''There is rapid disappearance of plants and animals due to climate variability and human activities,” according to Weather Forecasting and Indigenous Knowledge Systems, published by Great Zimbabwe University.

“There are few elders aware of traditional methods of weather forecasting. This makes traditional weather forecast less reliable,'' the study added.

LEWIS BITES THE DUST
--------
Knocked Out by Gibbons in Second Round of Bout.

Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul middleweight, knocked out Willie Lewis, of this city, in the second round of a ten-round bout at the Empire Athletic Club last night. One minute and twenty-five seconds had elapsed in the second round when Gibbons whipped over left and right hooks to the point of the chin and Lewis fell, to box no more for the night.

The bout was one sided from start to finish, and Lewis was never in the hunt. He landed about four punches, and was fortunate to last out the first round, as seven seconds before the end he was knocked down and saved from defeat then and there by the bell.

Gibbons went at his man at the start in a manner that forecasted the summary ending that followed. Stepping up briskly, he circled about, and, feinting Lewis into kinks, hit him when and where he pleased. Lewis, clever as he is, looked like an untried schoolboy, and was thoroughly afraid of the man before him. In an effort to take a chance he went in close, but Gibbons handled him like a child. His efforts at infighting were smothered, while Gibbons ripped solid counters home at pleasure.


1912-02-24 The Brooklyn Daily Eagle (Brooklyn, NY) (page S3)
Willie Lewis is in the Down and Out Club. The clever fighter from the Gas House district hit the toboggan slide at the Empire Athletic Club in Manhattan last night, and still is on his way to oblivion. Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul middleweight, started Willie along the road. It did not take Mike very long to bid Willie "bon voyage." After one minute had elapsed in the second round, Mike tapped Willie with his right on the point of the latter's jaw, and Willie peacefully passed away. So ended the second lesson, the first having been read at the Fairmont Athletic Club in the Bronx a month or two ago.

Lewis never had a lookin during the encounter. His first knockout at the hands of Gibbons had left the former afraid of the clever fighter from St. Paul, and as a result, Willie wanted to keep well out of the road of Master Gibbons. The St. Paul man kept after the New Yorker and dropped Willie in the first round for the full count. However, the bell saved Lewis and he was able to get to his corner for a minute's rest. Hardly had the second period started than Gibbons sent over his right and Lewis dropped dead to the world. Not waiting to hear the count, Gibbons reached down and helped Referee Tone carry Lewis to his corner. It took a good two minutes to bring Lewis back to the land of the living.

Gibbons Makes Short Work of "Willie" Lewis in Ring

By Ed. Cole.

It took one round and one minute and twenty-five seconds of the succeeding round for "Mike" Gibbons, of St. Paul, to knock out "Willie" Lewis, of New York, at the Empire Club last night. But for the very friendly bell Lewis would have passed up the fight in the first round, as he was down and the count was going on when the gong sounded to cease hostilities. He came up for the second round in fairly good condition and tried his best to get a swinging right to the young man from St. Paul. But it was a sorry attempt, and after Gibbons pumped a few left jabs into Lewis' face and hooked a short right to his jaw he went down, and everybody, about three thousand lovers of the boxing art, donned their wraps and went home.

That Gibbons is a master of the art of boxing he demonstrated last night without a question of doubt. He showed that he lacks nothing. He knows everything that was ever known in the art of self-defence. In the last three months he has developed what appeared to be lacking in his early fights in this city--a knockout punch. This he has proved he possesses twice within a month by knocking out Cashman and Lewis.

In regard to his cleverness, both with his hands and his footwork, old timers at the boxing game compare him with the one great boxer of the old days, "Jack" Dempsey, "the Nonpareil," who mastered opponents in the most artistic way until he met "Bob" Fitzsimmons. A fighter never leaves a positive record on the books that can prove decisively which is the better man unless they meet, hence it is only a matter of opinion whether Gibbons or the late and much thought of "Jack" Dempsey was the greater fighter.
--------
Gibbons a Phenomenon.

One thing is positive, however, Gibbons is not only phenomenally clever, but he has a snappy punch with either hand that will bring an opponent to the mat. This is something that Dempsey never boasted of. That is the one addition to Gibbons' stock of ability that will possibly give the impression that Gibbons would have proved Dempsey's master had he lived in the days of "the Nonpareil."

That Gibbons is headed for the middleweight championship is assured, and he is loaded to the muzzle with all kinds of shot. He intends to have another meeting with "Jack" Denning some time in April, and if he is in as good condition as he was last night it is only a question how long Denning will be able to stand his punishment. After that there is but one other fence for him to climb, the "Eddie" McGoorty obstacle, and the latter will no doubt prove the hardest proposition he has had to deal with.

Last night's contest needs little description. It was lopsided throughout. That Lewis' intention was to bring Gibbons to earth by a right swing was evident before a minute of the first round had elapsed. Lewis jumped into action immediately he left his chair. He shot his left out and Gibbons dodged it and in return for the attempt Gibbons hooked up his right and followed in one, two succession with his left. Lewis then tried another right swing, but Gibbons just backed away as cleverly as a batter gets away from an inshoot.

Gibbons drew Lewis into a right swing and then sidestepped a trifle and as Lewis floundered from the force of his swing Gibbons hooked him on the point of the chin and passed the left over on him as his head bobbed up from the force of the uppercut. Then with a short stinging right, again on the point of the chin, Lewis toppled over in bad shape. The referee started to count him out but the gong sounded and Lewis was helped to his corner.
--------
The Last of Lewis.

No sooner had the second round been called than Lewis made another effort with his powerful right hand, but it met atmosphere and not Gibbons. That was about the last thing Lewis did in the fighting line, for Gibbons smashed him with right and left, upper cut him and jabbed him. Lewis covered up with both hands, but the storm of gloves that bounced off him caused him to wobble about like a beheaded chicken. Then Gibbons waited for a couple of seconds and Lewis opened his gloves to see where Gibbons was. He didn't have time to locate him, for "Mike" shot his left into his face and hooked up his right to the jaw with the accuracy of a rifleman locating bull's eyes. Another right and left to the jaw and the story is told.

At the ringside Gibbons tipped the beam at 151 pounds and Lewis at 149½ pounds. To-day Gibbons leaves for St. Paul to see his wife, who expects to present a young middleweight to her husband in the near future. After that event he may return here to meet Denning and probably a local boxer in Bridgeport, Conn. He and his manager, "Ed" Reddy, will then take a trip to the coast in search of middleweight game.

Lewis Cries When He Realizes Mike Gibbons Has Knocked Him Out
--------
Local Fighter Quickly Disposed Of in Second Round by St. Paul Fistic Artist.
--------
Three thousand fight fans witnessed the bout between Mike Gibbons of St. Paul and Willie Lewis of this city at the Empire A. C., and after it was over these same three thousand persons left Manhattan Casino proclaiming the Westerner one of the greatest fighters for his weight they have ever seen in action. This high compliment was tendered to Gibbons for the easy and graceful way in which he knocked out Lewis in the second round, after about one minute of fighting, with a terrific right hand swing on the jaw.

Gibbons would have accomplished the feat in the first round had it not been for the clang of the bell, which sounded while Willie was groggy on his feet after having got up from the floor in a helpless condition from a heavy blow on the chin.

Up to the time Gibbons put in the punch that stowed Lewis away the Western "phenom" had given an exhibition of cleverness, ring generalship and clean and terrific hitting which are seldom seen in bouts at the local clubs.

Gibbons fought an entirely different battle from those which he put up in his previous six contests here. Instead of doing a lot of unnecessary feinting, sidestepping and ducking, as he did in these other bouts, Gibbons just walked out of his corner and with his guard high he cut loose at Lewis in a way that showed he was out to win as quickly as possible or lose out himself in the attempt.

After jabbing Lewis a few times in the face Gibbons let fly an overhand left hand swing, which nailed him flush on the cheekbone. The moment the blow landed Lewis's legs began to wobble, and as he started to stagger Gibbons dealt him left and right hand swings on the jaw. These blows dazed Willie completely, and he began to rush at Gibbons, letting fly with a right swing. Gibbons saw the punch coming and, stepping back, let the blow fall short and then countered beautifully with two straight jabs into Lewis's face, sending his head back.

By this time Lewis was bewildered, and Gibbons, seeing he had him at his mercy, hooked a left swing to the jaw which sent him reeling. As quick as a flash Gibbons drove in a right uppercut, dropping Lewis to the floor.

After Referee Tone had counted six, Lewis staggered to his feet. He was very shaky, while both hands hung at his side. Gibbons was just about to put over the finishing punch when the bell rang, causing Referee Tone to go between the men.

When the second round started Gibbons waded right into Lewis by jabbing him hard in the nose with a straight left. Willie then threw over a left hand swing to Gibbons's jaw, which seemed to rile him, for he let go three stiff jabs to Willie's face and then crossed his right to his jaw, sending him to the floor on his back.

With the exception of a slight turn of his head and the raising of his right leg, Lewis did not move, and was counted out. At the fatal count of ten the referee and Gibbons bent down and picking Lewis up carried him to his corner. After he recovered consciousness Lewis, broken-hearted over his defeat, put his head on his glove and began to cry. He was still crying when he was escorted from the ring by his seconds.


Gibbons Best Man I Ever Met, Says Lewis in Adieu to Ring.
--------
By Willie Lewis.

I think Gibbons is a wonderful fighter. He is not only clever and shifty, but he can certainly deliver a terrific blow. Before my fight with him this time I was confident he could not punch. I know different now, for he proved to my satisfaction that he is one of the hardest punchers in the business. I have fought middleweights, light heavyweights and heavyweights, both in this country, England and France, but none of them hit me so hard as Gibbons. I wish to state right now that I am through with the fighting game forever. I have fought my last fight. I took on this bout with Gibbons to find out if I was still there or all in. I am satisfied now that I am all in, and that is the reason why I have retired from the game. I have been fighting for thirteen years next June and I think it's about time for me to quit. I intend to pay strict attention to my cafe in the future and forget the past. I wish Gibbons the best of luck and hope to see him middleweight champion in a year or so.

Gibbons Knocks Out Lewis
--------
St. Paul Middleweight Puts Local Man Away in Second Round at Empire A.C.
--------
Beaten into a state of utter helplessness and knocked out in the second round, "Willie" Lewis made a sorry showing against "Mike" Gibbons, the St. Paul middleweight, in the Empire Athletic Club ring last night. Gibbons did not allow Lewis to land a single clean blow, but went after him from the opening gong and battered him down in impressive fashion.

The crowd of five thousand that jammed the hall got an excellent idea of what was coming when Gibbons hammered Lewis down in the first round. Had not the bell come to the local man's relief just as he arose it is highly probable that he would have been saved the necessity of going into the second session. Gibbons took matters coolly, doing the execution in a businesslike way with right and left uppercuts, jabs and smashing jolts to the body. Lewis attempted several left hooks, but he was wild and the St. Paul boxer stepped inside the swings with straight lefts to the head. Gibbons landed half a dozen right uppercuts and left jabs and Lewis hit the boards. As he got up, wavering, the gong sounded.

The second round went just 1m. 25s. Gibbons repeated his programme of the previous round, and finally knocked Lewis out with a ripping left to the jaw. The Minnesota boxer's hair was not even mussed, and he failed to get any perspiration up. In the second bout in the city Gibbons easily defeated Lewis in ten rounds. "Willie" clamored for another chance, and he got it with a vengeance. Gibbons entered the ring weighing 151 pounds and Lewis scaled at 149½.

In the preliminaries "Eddie" McFarland, the Oklahoma lightweight, made a fair showing against "Kid" Alberts, the latter winning on points. "Willie" Chandler stopped "Young Terry" Martin, a negro, in five rounds. "Battling" Reddy and "Phillie" Carmine went six rounds to a fast draw.

There's another wreck on the track. Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul Limited, booming along at a mile a minute clip, crashed into Willie Lewis of the Gashouse district at the Empire A. C. of Harlem last night. All that was left of Lewis was the pieces. The once great welterweight was a mere toy in the hands of Glittering Gibbons. Willie's light went out in the second round. After dropping the former pride of the Parisian boulevards toward the end of the first round, the bell coming to Willie's rescue and postponing is enforced sleep, Mike caused the swan song to be sung over McKetrick's roustabout before the second round was half over. Mike sent a snappy right hook to the jaw and the tottering Lewis dropped like a log. Willie fell on his face, unconsciously tried to pull himself up and rolled over on his back while Referee Dan Tone tolled the full drone of the doleful decimal. Lewis was carried to his corner. Two minutes afterward he was revived and led weeping from the ring.

The beginning of the end came in the first two minutes of fighting. About the middle of the first round Gibbons hooked a hard left to the jaw. The punch rocked Lewis from head to toe, and but for his falling into a clinch he would have been floored. Gibbons fought himself free and shot rapid-fire lefts and rights to Lewis's head and body. For a few seconds Lewis weathered the gale. Then "crash!" and he was driven to the boards from a one-two punch, a straight left and a crossing right. Willie arose at the count of five. The fog was still in his eyes and he walked blindly in without offering to protect himself. Gibbons shook the staggering Lewis with stiff punches to head and body, but just when Willie was ready to fall the bell came to his rescue.

Lewis, staggering to his corner, was showered with water by his seconds. He was weak and groggy, however, when he came up for the second round. Mike went right in to finish him. For a few seconds Willie tried to block the lightning punches that Gibbons shot in from all angles. Gibbons, however, picked out the holes in his armor, and drove home shot after shot. Lewis threw discretion to the winds and waded in with his guard down, risking all on one good healthy swing. It was Gibbons, however, that landed the haymaker. He sent three lightning left jabs and a terrific right to the body. Another left jab and a vicious right uppercut followed. Then the terrible crossing right and--it all was over but the count.

Though defeated Lewis was not disgraced, and he went down to defeat like a man. It was another case of the pitcher going once too often to the well. A great fighter in his day, Lewis's stamina and vitality were sapped by loose training that often amounted to excesses. He was but a shell of his former fighting self. In fact, he has been living on his reputation since he was beaten to a pulp and knocked out by Frank Klaus a year ago. His ring generalship and courage have carried him through several tough battles since then, but it only was a question when some good, fast, hard-hitting man would come along and "bust" the bubble.

Gibbons entered the ring at 9.55 p. m., accompanied by his manager, Eddie Reddy, and a retinue of handlers. Lewis followed a minute afterward. Danny McKetrick and Joe Jeanette looked out after things in Lewis's corner. It was announced the men had weighed in, as agreed, at 147 pounds at 3 p. m. The announcer said the ringside weights of the men were: Gibbons, 151 pounds; Lewis, 149½. While the men were donning the gloves Jess Smith, Johnny Dundee, Tommy Coleman and Knock Out Brown were introduced, and a collection was taken up in behalf of the widow of Connie Schmidt, the Jersey fighter who was killed by a freight train last week. The McMahon brothers donated $50 and those around the ringside contributed generously, several hundred dollars being taken up.

The gong rang a few seconds before 10 p. m. Lewis lead with a light left to the face, Mike coming back with a snappy left and a right-hand uppercut to the face. The punch hurt Lewis. Gibbons shot a left to the jaw and Willie, returning the compliment, fell into a clinch. Lewis hooked a right to the jaw on the break and, quick as a flash, Mike planted a left and right to the face. Gibbons stepped back and then leaped in with a crossing right labeled "knock out." The punch missed the mark, grazing the jaw. Lewis shot a left to the face and tried the right for the jaw, but was blocked. Mike then began peppering Lewis with straight lefts. Gibbons shot in his punches with the speed of a bullet, and Lewis could not block or duck them. Willie got wild and missed a hard left swing. Lewis landed a right to the jaw, and then Gibbons hooked a vicious left to Willie's mouth. The punch shook Lewis from head to heel, and he fell into a clinch. Mike fought himself free and hooked a left and right to the jaw. Again Gibbons sent the left and right to the jaw, following with a right cross. Lewis was sent to the boards. He got up at the count of five. Gibbons tried hard to finish him. Lewis, though groggy, was set to receive the punches. Mike was showering him with stiff lefts and rights, and Willie was staggering when the bell came to his rescue.

Lewis had trouble getting to his corner. It looked as if he would fall before he could get to his chair. Frantic work by his seconds brought him up for the second round. Mike opened the round with a left to the face. Lewis missed a right and clinched. Mike shot a right to the body and hooked the left to the face. Gibbons reached the face with a straight left and crossing right. Willie reached the body with a right, and Mike sunk a left and right in Willie's mid-section.

Three times Mike jabbed Lewis in the face. By this time Lewis was almost in. He dropped his guard and tried to land one good, solid punch. Gibbons stepped in and placed a right to the body. He jabbed the face and uppercut the jaw with his right. Suddenly Gibbons crossed his right flush to the jaw. Good night.

GIBBONS KNOCKS OUT LEWIS IN SECOND
--------
St. Paul Man Has New Yorker Staggering Around Ring in Empire A. C. Fight.
--------
Willie Lewis had his chance last night at the Empire Athletic Club to prove that his recent defeat by Mike Gibbons was a fluke, and the St. Paul whirlwind brushed the erstwhile king of welterweights into dreamland in less than five minutes. A right to the jaw was the finishing punch and it did the trick so effectively that Lewis was still in the land of dreams when Gibbons carried him to his corner. The knockout arrived less than two minutes after the second round began.

From the bell which started the rival battlers on their way until Gibbons dropped Lewis to the canvas for the full count, there was nothing to the bout except Gibbons. Lewis, noted for his feinting ability and all-around boxing cleverness, was as powerless before the St. Paul boy as a novice, and during the five minutes he failed to land a single effective punch on Gibbons. Mike simply toyed with the New Yorker, feinted until Willie was dizzy, stepped out of the paths of Lewis's punches without apparent effort, and penetrated Lewis's guard with his terrific punches as often as he desired. It was evident before the first round was half completed that Lewis was in for the trimming of his life. He took almost as much punishment as could be crowded into such a short space of time.

Before the bout was ten seconds old Gibbons had jolted Lewis's head back with two lefts and a right. Within a minute he had Willie staggering around the ring, and before the bell sounded Gibbons dropped Lewis with a terrific right uppercut after staggering him with a left swing. Lewis regained his feet at the count of five, and the bell sounded just in time to save him from a knockout.

Gibbons went in to make a quick finish of the bout in the second round, and succeeded. He was landing often on Willie's jaw with either hand, and Lewis was unable to stop the shower of blows. His right eye was swollen and his face was very red from the punishment already received. A series of rights and lefts soon had Lewis groggy, and Gibbons shot out that terrible right with enough power to end the bout. Lewis did not move a muscle while Referee Tone tolled off the fatal ten, and Gibbons helped Willie's seconds to carry him to his corner.

GIBBONS MAKES SHORT WORK OF WILLIE LEWIS
--------
Mike Gibbons, the St. Paul scrapper, to-day laid claim to the welterweight championship of the world, following his decisive victory last night over Willie Lewis, at the Empire A. C., of Harlem. Mike declared that he had been vindicated by knocking out the New York boy who claimed that Gibbons' recent decision over him was a fluke.

"I said I would put him away in a hurry, and I made good," was Gibbons' comment to-day.

A ring victory was never more decisive. In the first round Gibbons put over a crashing blow which would have ended the battle had not the bell rung while Lewis was lying helpless on the floor. In the second round the St. Paul wonder duplicated, but this time the bell did not come to the rescue.

WILLIE LEWIS KNOCKED OUT.
--------
Gibbons Does the Trick in Second Round at Empire A. C.

Willie Lewis, the local welterweight who once claimed the world's championship, was knocked out cold in the second round by Mike Gibbons of St. Paul at the Empire A. C. in Harlem Casino last night. Lewis was no match for the wonderful Western boxer. He could not land his heavy swings and also found it impossible to defend himself when Gibbons went after him. Gibbons outboxed, outfeinted and outslugged Lewis from start to finish.

Just before the first round ended Lewis was floored with a heavy right hand hook to the jaw. He was just getting on his pins when the bell rang. Gibbons cut out fancy business in the second round and made a punching bag of the Bowery boy.

He hit Lewis from every angle, putting so much power into his punches that a knockout was inevitable. A left hook on the chin finally put Lewis away in such a manner that he was dead to the world when the tenth second was counted.

Attracted by Gibbons, one of the largest crowds ever housed by the club gathered at the ringside, and by the time the preliminaries were at an end there were few empty seats in the big casino. The ringside weights were: Gibbons, 151; Lewis, 149½. Dan Tone was referee.

First Round--As Lewis tore in Gibbons landed a hook with each hand and made the local man break ground. Gibbons danced around his man with great foot work, jabbing him with lefts and sending over a terrific right to the ear. Lewis blocked for a moment and then, rushing in, he received more hooks in the face. Gibbons feinted beautifully, after which he shot a left to the jaw. Lewis's swings were short, and again Gibbons jabbed him in the face. Lewis tore in with a right on the neck, whereupon Gibbons cut loose with a blinding volley of punches. A right put Lewis down, and he staggered up just as the bell rang. Gibbons had the round.

Second Round--Lewis missed a hard blow with the right and Gibbons stepped in with hooks and upper cuts that made Lewis reel. The latter rushed and Gibbons sidestepped him. Again Lewis rushed and this time Gibbons landed a fierce right hook under the chin. Lewis tottered, but instinctively threw up his hands. Gibbons drove in body blows underneath his guard and then, shifting with a left hand upper cut, he reached the point of the jaw. It was a terrific wallop and Lewis's legs bent under him. He sank to the floor in a heap and after being counted out he was literally carried to his corner, where he soon revived. It was an easy victory for Gibbons.

          Automotive Hula-hoops   
The day before GM met with congress, GM provided the complete Congressional presentation to all its dealers.

Before I opened the file I froze and thought …

”This has to be the most powerful presentation ever created by man. Few can imagine the force of GM gathering the best and the brightest, all focused on a single mission, create the most compelling argument ever made in order to survive. High fives must have been flying across the room, “we will blow them away” cheers in its development.”

Then I opened the file…

Scrolled down,
Down,
Down further…
Something to the effect of “With / without loans”
“Dismal forecasts”, “Car that can go 40 miles”
Shure, shure, shure… keep reading, reading…
and then …

The End.

Ok, one more time maybe I missed something.

But it wasn’t there.

Then I thought of the movie Hudsucker Proxy, a young Tim Robbins pitch “you know for kids” as he tries to sell the hula-hoop to an aging board of directors.

I guess I was hoping for a hula-hoop in GM’s presentation (replace with Ford or Chrysler at any time) something that would attract younger buyers, those who care more about text messaging and global warming than horse power.

For younger car buyers, the big three’s pitch to congress must be like watching CBS, NBC and ABC defend itself from You-tube.

I know it’s not polite to ask, but we can conclude (by observations alone) that most automotive executives are over 45 years of age (congressional folks as well).

Experience is great, however without an injection of aspiration and enthusiasm from a diverse talent pool, automotive hula-hoops like the Model A, Cadillac V8 and Mini Van, would have never been created.

Detroit has tons of white paper ready to pen the next MB A-class, VW TDI, and Smart cars but unfortunately congress (and the public) see Mustangs, Camaros and Challengers.

Suggestion for the big three if there is a round three.

Do Work
          The Fool On The Hill   
Twenty four hour news formats have most people believing the reason for higher gas prices is due to rising global demands of crude oil and American’s dependence of imported oil – especially from OPEC nations.

Demand for fuel in China is the best smoke-screen. It’s easy to visualize masses of people on bicycles now driving Cadillac’s with 2 car garages – thus Americans can conclude “it’s out of our control” so just pay the price.

For those just awaking ….there is a small square bock of real estate in Manhattan called Wall Street, the buildings there (and in similar markets throughout the globe especailly London); control the world’s financial conditions good, bad or indifferent.

The Street forecasts
The Street invests
The Street controls

Pay $5.00 for a gallon of gas … The Street wins.

I’ll explain.

Let’s say a group of investors concocted a strategy where it buys future stockpiles of medical equipment to price levels where the average American or Health Care provider couldn’t pay the cost any longer. One day the price of an x-ray is $100 the next day $800 and the next day $1500 – Americans would be outraged!

Over the past 25 years the price of oil and the price of a gallon of gas were paired, both rising, but matched in even parallels. Since 2002 the price of oil disconnected itself from the price of gas like a run-a-way train, the spread is alarming, if it were a cardiogram the patient would have already died.

Index Speculators claimed their territory post September 11, fueled by Institutional Investors, Mutual funds and University endowments… Index Speculators have become as critical to world oil markets as China, both place equal amounts of pressures to continue the rise in oil prices. The key difference is Index Speculators buy “oil indexes” and China buys the “actual commodity”.

As more Oil Index Speculators…”speculate”… the sheer mass of long positions assure higher prices.. the unsupervised frenzy feeds itself.

Could the oil bubble burst? Possibly.. however traditional supply and demand models are paralyzed – eight fold price increases in any commodity over an 8 year period doesn’t increase demand it reduces it (yes even with China consuming more oil). Thus increasing oil production won’t work because we already have an oil surplus.

The only remedy is to eliminate Index Speculation on all commodities. Without Index Speculation investor risk is tied into an obligation to cover short positions by buying the actual commodity, thus placing the focus on real supply and demand swings. Till then Index Speculators remain the core reason Oil and Food prices continue to increase.

The fool on the hill sits alone but has the ability to see the big picture.
          Trading Made Simple   
Dateline December 21, 2007, masses of automotive incentive forces have been taken back to the boarders, reduced production is planned. “We will not fight” acclaim Automotive Executives. Analysts are quick to publish reports on a more mature, financially driven industry, using buzz words like “market driven”, "ordered pipelines" and “Value Priced Products”.

But wait this is December.

----------

For those new to how automotive companies plan their calendar year, allow me to illustrate each month – along with the appropriate stock order.

Jan. - Buy
The big picture always begins at the Detroit Auto Show, where Automotive CEO’s from all corners of the globe project the promise of new markets, new segments and new profits. Most (if asked) underestimate first quarter forecasts. Keeping in mind this is Detroit and the month is January, most agree and go home, finding frozen inventories and little revenue.

Feb. - Hold
Ok a little push back from Wall Street on poor January results, no need to over-react its still February. Dealer meeting frenzy time - present confidential plans for a March close out – push new orders now, with the promise of increased incentive spending sometime around (pick a date).

Mar. - Sell
Hoping no CFO will notice, quietly borrow from fourth quarter incentive budgets and launch a March close out blitz, off-set spendings with increased wholesale gains and surprise Wall Street with a stronger than anticipated first quarter result.

Apr. - Buy
Follow January (different auto show / same story)

May - Hold
Follow February

June - Sell
Follow March

July – Buy
Similar to April

Aug. – Hold
Similar to May

Sep. – Sell
Yes it's June again

Oct. – BUY
New model launch.

Nov. – Hold
Short month - no one pays attention.

Dec. – SELL
Ran out of money, talk advertising / first quarter plans.

Ok now you know the secret – you can send me the commissions.

Happy Holidays.

           Oprah abandons broadcast TV for a life in cable: Oprah, we need to talk...   

Just this Monday Sarah Palin told Oprah she was "the queen of talk shows." Which might mean there's no better time to abdicate the throne than when you're clearly on top (and when the #2 talk show, Dr. Phil is produced by you).

But Oprah didn't just announce that when she wraps her 25th season in 2011 she will wrap the show for good. No, she announced that she would also begin the next chapter in her mega-successful life: she's going to move to cable. Her cable network, titled OWN, for Oprah Winfrey Network, was actually announced some time ago, so while that's not news, the fact that Ms. Winfrey is moving away from daytime television's most-watched show to build a fledgling cable network is an eyebrow-raiser.

Because cable TV is no safe haven away from the woes of broadcasters.

Audiences are fragmenting, cable TV is having a harder and harder time maintaining viewers in the face of the DVR and Hulu one-two punch. In fact, OWN was supposed to be up and running this winter but was postponed because of the challenging advertiser climate. It's a climate that's not going to get dramatically better even if our economy continues to improve. That's because advertisers have many alternatives for their advertising dollars, including the Internet, where more and more spending is shifting every day, reaching nearly $26 billion this year (see our July 2009 Interactive Marketing Forecast report for more detail).

          Things I said this week   
I have had a lot of moments this week where I stopped and thought, "I'm getting old" or "I'm channeling my {mother} {grandmother} {grandpa}"  or "I've lost my mind"

Here is a peek at some of these moments and the words that prompted them.

"Seriously? I can't even go poop without you asking me for something? Do you really think I'm going to get your goldfish RIGHT THIS MINUTE?"

"I'm sorry Max, did the clippers buzz your nuts?"

"You know how hot it is outside? Do you know that we pay a lot of money to keep our house cool? And everytime you open the door, you are letting our cold air out? Can you just possibly wait 95 seconds for me to come inside to ask me that question instead of opening the door 5 times??"

"I've just got to sit here and cool off for a few minutes."

"You don't want to eat breakfast this morning? Okay, whatever"

My personal favorite

"My phone seems to be stuck on the forecast for HELL"

"Is it fall yet?"

My bronchial infection turned out to be worse than expected and has meant that I've been unable to return to work until today.
The weather's been really mild recently but is due to turn colder this weekend with more snow forecast.
At long last, after a 6 week wait we've finally got digi tv. Not a massive choice but we've got about 20 channels that we can access in English.
Really need to get cracking and finish this place off over the next few weeks ready for the tourist season. Not a lot to do, some tiling, a couple of doors to make and a bit of panelling.
          The Grand Wager.   
Full Battle Gear.

From the moment a Climber decides to attempt Everest, he is required to make certain payments to keep his wager alive.  First comes the money. Depending on the Guide Company and various other options, this might be $50,000 to $100,000, all paid in advance with no hope of refund under any circumstances.  The bet is on.  He next makes numerous physical payments in the form of training for hours each day, six days a week. There are payments involving the purchase of expensive equipment, lost wages and forgone vacation time, evacuation insurance and costly vaccines.  There are psychological payments, taking the form mental fatigue, the doubts of third parties, and the painful two month absence from loved ones. None of these are negotiable.

But the final payment a Climber must lay on the table is his life. To think one could leave the South Col without doing so would be delusional. If he wishes to wager he can stand on top of the world, a Climber must go all in, betting his todays and tomorrows.  This is an easy notion to view in the abstract as one prepares for a climb many months away, but the weight becomes awesome as the last few minutes pass prior to leaving the tent. I watched Ty closely during those minutes.

The wind was blowing harder than the forecast had suggested. If it persisted there would be no making the summit and lives would likely be lost. But we were going. Ty was leaving at 7pm with the first group of Classic Climbers. It was 6:50pm and his Sherpa, Lakpa, had stuck his head into our tent several times already, trying to keep Ty moving along. I could see the nerves winding up through the expression on Ty's face.  His eyes were wide, brows raised.  There was a sense of resignation. He was making that final payment.
"We can do this," I told him.  "24 hours from now we will be down  at camp 2 with an Everest Summit under our belts.  We are strong enough.  We have the skills and the support. We just need to keep a clear head and execute," I said.
Ty nodded in agreement, but his mind was clearly elsewhere.  I could almost see him staring at the mountain of chips he had just slid out onto the table. We hugged, then he slipped out the tent door into the darkness. I thought about the call I had made many months ago, the call where I invited Ty to be a part of this climb.  Did I regret it? Would I feel better right then had I not invited Ty into this situation? No. Ty was suppose to be here, probably for the same mysterious reasons I was.

The next hour passed quickly and soon I too was making the Grand Wager.  I was nervous, but felt at peace with the decision. From the moment Everest had first called me, as I rappelled down the face of Carstensz Pyramid, it had always accompanied a feeling of warmth and positive energy. I was prepared, had a game plan, and had tested both with success through the course of the rotations.  I looked one last time at the photos in my pocket; My wife, Lin, sons Chase and Trevor, my Mother, and a recently deceased friend. I examined a small plastic bag with my brother's ashes in it, then returned it to the pocket. Pulling the oxygen mask over my face, I stepped out into the night.


          Launching the Summit bids   
Classic Climbers in their dining tent


A plan took shape that would see three successive waves of IMG climbers make summit attempts. The first of these would be the Hybrid Group of eight climbers, plus 4 of the strongest Classic climbers. This team was dispatched to the higher camps, arriving at the South Col on May 16 with plans to make a summit push that night. The second wave consisting entirely of Classic climbers, inclusive of myself and Ty, would arrive at high camp the evening of May 18 to attempt the summit that night. And the third wave, finishing out the Classic climbers,  would arrive the evening of May 19 for their summit bid. 

Having made the long hard climb directly from EBC to Camp 2 in the course of rotation three, we all knew and dreaded the first leg of our summit positioning. But this time was for real. It was not training or conditioning. This was part of putting ourselves in a place where the many years of dreaming and preparation could be tested. The excitement was palpable. Though the dread of passing through the ice fall weighed heavy, we could find comfort in the realization this would be the last time we would climb it. Mingma and I visited the Punja Altar before leaving EBC, as has been our custom prior to previous trips into the ice fall. I leave the chanting to Mingma. It is my job to toss rice on cue. The air was thick with the scent of smoldering juniper, a fire that will not be allowed to extinguish until all Climbers and Sherpa have vacated the mountain at season's end. Daily temperatures had warmed enough in the time since arriving at EBC to meaningfully increase movement within the fall. Ladders used in the second rotation were crushed miserably between fallen seracs. Parts of the route had been completely redirected to avoid the fields of refrigerator size ice blocks now piled on the path we had once trod. Open sky directed our attention to the now missing “ice cream cone” serac that had dominated one section as a landmark. Where had it fallen? There was no sign of it. Probably it had tipped over and been consumed by the crevasses working their jaws tirelessly at its base. 

As the trek continued from the ice fall, past the area that had been camp 1, direct sunlight filled the Western Cwm. The walls of Nuptse, Everest, and Lhotse reflected this heat down upon us, quickly raising the temperature from the low 20’s of the ice fall to 90 degrees fahrenheit. Even after stripping away layers of clothing, the inescapable heat sapped our strength and slowed our progress up the long valley to a halting infantry march. Our only comfort was the knowledge that we would have a full rest day the following day, May 16. Wave 1 advanced to high camp (South Col) as we moved to camp 2. 

Wave 1 left high camp that night in very windy conditions. The forecast suggested these winds would abate as the night went on, but they did not. All climbers were turned back short of The Balcony, a small flat notch almost 2,000 feet above the South Col.  Several of them returned with frost bite injuries. Two of the Classic climbers descended to camp 2 as they no longer had enough bottled oxygen to attempt the summit. One of these climbers, acknowledging the mountain had won this time, continued down Everest the next day, bound for home. The other climber, Dan, made arrangements to obtain a new supply of oxygen and make a second attempt several days later with Wave 3. The two Classic climbers who remained at the South Col had each purchased an extra bottle of oxygen in advance and so had the means to make a second attempt the evening of May 17. Both prevailed, scoring the first summits for our IMG team this season. To make room for this second attempt, Wave 2 and 3 were each pushed back a day

Hybrid climbers each have their own Sherpa, not unlike Classic climbers. But in addition they have a Western Guide climbing with them at a ratio of 4:1. They enjoy their own separate dining tent and what appeared to many Classic climbers to be preferential treatment when it came to certain equipment and priority for summit windows. For this they pay an additional $20,000 above what a Classic climber pays. Not surprisingly, a blue collar versus white collar tension emerged between the two groups. While the Classic climbers would like to have seen the Hybrid group succeed, the fact that none did seemed to validate a general sense that the enhanced pampering they required did nothing to improve their mountaineering. 

          Stalking a summit date   


May 10, 2013
Rest Day.

These days are simple. If I can come up with one task that gives purpose to my life I then free myself to nap and eat chocolate bars with impunity. Today that task will be the leveling of my tent platform. It is sometimes easy to forget we are living on a glacier. All about EBC one sees rocks and boulders that seem to have arrived at their final destinations. Upon closer examination one notes these stones to be perched atop ice that is slowly melting. In a similar fashion my body heat melts deeper trenches beneath my tent nightly until there remains no sleepable contortion. 

MIngma has returned from Phortse. He is pleased with the inflatable palm tree I left outside his tent and eager to get on with the tasks of day to day living at EBC. I mention my tent platform and he pledges to return with a shovel to help me. I take an advance on this and eat a chocolate bar. BTW, all this chocolate bar consumption is not just about loving Hershey’s with Almonds. It is also an effort to stabilize my weight, which is now down 20 pounds from where I started the expedition.  

As the sun touches EBC the temperature rises from the mid 20’s to about 75 degrees. I kill time waiting for Mingma by building stone sculptures. 



May 11, 2013
Rest Day. Trek to Gorak Shep.

Morning coffee in the Cook Tent

The weather forecast for two days of lite wind at the summit proved correct. The rope fixing teams pounced on the opportunity, placing anchors and lines all the way from the South Col to the summit. The fix is in. Everest is now climbable. 

This year will also see the introduction of an element that could potentially save many lives up high on Everest. The Hilary Step, a notorious bottleneck at almost 29,000 feet, has been the site of life and death drama for as long as climbers have come to test themselves on Everest. One of the reasons for this is the steep narrow corridor, only wide enough for one climber to pass at a time. Other climbers waiting to ascend or descend the Hilary Step must wait in line, exposed to the elements and burning precious oxygen. Last year saw wait times of over an hour, and four deaths which could arguably be attributed to that wait on some level. Matters are that much worse when an exhausted climber becomes entangled in the lines, thus shutting down all traffic flow until he is freed. For the last three years IMG has lobbied hard with the other major guide companies to put in an alternate descending route. This would be an ambitious project, requiring the drilling of anchor holes into the rock and the fixing of lines that would allow climbers to rappel off the side of Everest just above the Hilary Step, dangling there above Tibet while they traverse below the line of climbers waiting to ascend the Step. The combined manpower and resources of several teams would be required to pull this off, and for various reasons it simply did not work out in years past. But this year, and from this point forward, will be different. The alternate route was secured yesterday and will no doubt be tested in the coming days. 

The next weather window is expected on May 15. As large crowds are expected, we are sending up only a fraction of our team. They leave EBC at 3:30 a.m. tomorrow.  The next weather window looks to be on May 20, when very low winds are forecast above camp 4. Most of our remaining team members, including myself and Ty, will make our summit bids on this day, given no change in the forecast. This will see us leaving EBC on May 16 at 3:30 a.m. and climbing straight to camp 2. We will stay that night and rest the day of May 17. We will leave Camp 2 at 4:00 a.m. on May 18, climbing to camp 3 high up on the Lohtse face, then traversing the following morning to camp 4 (The South Col).  We should arrive at camp 4 on May 19 in the late morning hours. After resting in our tents through the day, we will then leave for the summit around 10:00 p.m. If all goes according to plan, I should reach the summit of Everest around 6:00 a.m. on May 20. Nepal is about 13 hours ahead of Pacific Standard Time, so make that adjustment if you care to follow along in local time. While the actual dates of the above may change owing to shifting weather, the basic order of events should remain the same. 

          Final rotation complete!   


May 3, 2013
EBC to Camp 2

Climbing days start early. This is necessitated by the heat that comes with daylight and the resultant instability it brings to the snow and ice surfaces we must climb in, on, and around. On this day we ate breakfast at 2:30 a.m. By now we are expected to show up at breakfast with climbing harness on and ready to go. There is a nervous energy about the team and we rush at our tasks to release it, though there typically is no cause to rush. Conversation is limited to requests for items spread out along the long table we sit down to, our persons ringing like wind chimes from the metallic climbing implements hanging at our waists. Each of us is studying the day ahead in our minds. 

On this day we would climb from EBC directly to Camp 2, omitting the overnight at Camp 1 we found so welcome on our last ascent. It would be a big day, launching our third and final acclimation rotation. Like most of my team mates, I had a plan. I would climb steady through the ice fall, but only at 70% of my pace. This would allow reserves to then carry me on to camp 2. But the ice fall had other plans. 

As Mingma and I entered mid ice fall the adjacent hillside released an avalanche of boulders and ice.  Quickening our pace, we entered an area of large roundish ice blocks called The Popcorn. A singular strand of prayer flags hang over this section signifying the heightened danger of same. I could hear Mingma chanting prayers in low tones just ahead of me as an ice avalanche broke loose next to us. There was a concise snap, followed by a roar not unlike a locamotive going by. The break of the fall line carried the debris beneath us. I wondered about the other climbers for a moment, but sensed Mingma’s urgency and put all I had into staying with him. We arrived at a safe zone called The Football Field just as one of the Air Force climbers was leaving to continue up the hill. 

Mingma listened on his radio to the chatter among Sherpa and Basecamp Leaders as I tried to eat and drink. No one had been caught up in either avalanche. Just then a third avalanche released above us in a notoriously active section known as “Lo La Pass.” By my estimate the Air Force climber who had just left would be square in the middle of it. We cut our rest stop short and hurried up to check on the Airman. Indeed Lo La Pass had been swept through by the ice fall, but the fresh foot prints of the climber and his Sherpa confirmed they had arrived after the release. We continued to press hard through the remainder of the ice fall, arriving at camp 1 just four hours after leaving EBC. This was much faster than the 6 hours normally consumed.  I was spent and nerve-wracked as I collapsed into a vacant tent to lay down for a moment.  One by one, other team members emerged likewise “knackered”.  We rested here for a bit, before then proceeding on to camp 2. 

The wind was blowing hard and the pre-dawn cold left us in single digits as we tried to consume the contents of our packed lunches; frozen juice box, frozen salmon spread, frozen cheese square, and frozen dessert pastry. After 20 minutes of futility, the frustration combined with a creeping cold to inspire the kind of vigorous movement that might generate some body heat. Myself and another team member set out with our Sherpas for camp 2. I could see direct sunlight slowly working its way down the side of Nuptse, staging a soft landing on the gaining valley floor. At some point I left the othe team member behind and it was just Mingma and I. I could see the tents of camp 2 an hour and a half up the valley, but now the over-exertion of the ice fall came to collect and I “bonked”. I stopped in the trail and breathed hard for twenty chest-fulls. Feeling marginally better, I motioned to Mingma that we should continue on. 100 steps later I had to stop and breath again. “I’m sorry, MIngma” I apologized. “I just can’t catch my breath.” “It’s OK,” he offered, “we go slow.” I continued to deteriorate, only able to go 80 steps, then 60, and so on before needing to rest and breath hard. We straggled into camp 2 six and a half hours after leaving EBC. I am unsure by what hidden strength I managed the last quarter mile. Remaining team members staggered into camp 2 over the next 4 hours. Our stories were very similar; the fear and adrenaline of the ice fall had over-taxed our resources and from there on the will to place one foot in front of the other had gotten us to camp 2. We slept until dinner, then logged another 12 hours to breakfast.

Rest day at camp 2

I have written about the process a mountain climber goes through, a process that tears down his humanity until he has become that animal he must be to climb the highest mountains. I blew my nose, a moment ago, into a soiled frozen wool sock I know I must wear tomorrow. By this account I should think I am getting close to summit ready. 

The Lohtse Face
May 5, 2013
Camp 2 to Camp 3 (Touch and return)

Camp 3 sits at an elevation of 24,000 feet, carved into the side of the Lohtse face by the mean trade of ice axes. Ten tents cling there, an outpost of the most minimal accommodations for climbers in route to camp 4 (the South Col). Our original plan for this rotation was to have each team member spend a night (without supplemental oxygen) at camp three to establish the high threshold for his acclimation. “You probably won’t sleep. It will be a miserable night,” Big Boss Greg Venovage promised during our preparation talk. Our first team of three climbers spent the night of May 4 at camp 3 in accordance with this plan. 

By the next morning the weather forecasts had changed to then predict severe wind and cold up high, So the remainder of the team was instructed to climb to camp 3, spend a few hours acclimating, then return the same day to camp 2. This was a welcome change as an earlier climber had descended from camp 3 a few days earlier with a frostbitten finger and ear. 

Mingma and I left camp 2 at four a.m. in our down suits and warmest gloves. We arrived at the Lohtse face an hour later and began climbing the steep icy incline. So steep is the Lohtse face, that I could reach out and touch it while standing plumb vertical.  

We were only 20 minutes up the face when Mingma stopped to listen to his radio. “Sherpa sick,” he said to me with concern. He said one of the Sherpas above us at camp three had gotten up, dressed, eaten some breakfast, but then said he felt dizzy. The Sherpa vomited, then went to lay down in his tent.  A camp Physician was patched onto the line and I could hear her instructing the people at camp three to administer Niphedipine and place the Sherpa on bottled oxygen. We continued our climb upward. 

Mingma stopped again ten minutes later and turned to me. “Sherpa died,” he said pointing at his radio. He also told me this Sherpa was his brother in-law.  We would later learn that two team members had worked frantically to save the man’s life and would later descend, traumatized by what had happened. This Sherpa was a longtime veteran of IMG and had spent much time higher than camp 3 on Everest. Theories evolved, none of which could be conclusively proven, but the available symptoms suggested the victim had contracted High Altitude Pulmonary Edema (HAPE) which then progressed quite quickly to High Altitude Cerebral Edema (HACE). I told Mingma how sorry I was for his loss and suggested we should turn around and go back to camp 2, but he insisted we continue up. I believe this was because he felt an obligation to get to the body as soon as possible so he could make certain proper Buddhist traditions were observed. Our climb to camp 3 was called off 1,000 vertical feet short of the camp. Mingma continued up. I was assigned another Sherpa to lead me back down. A team of Sherpas lowered the body down the Lohtse face, where a helicopter picked up Mingma and his deceased brother in-law, transporting them to their home village of Phortse. IMG  located the man’s parents in another village and had a helicopter take them to Phortse as well.

Camp 2 to EBC

Team Leaders were eager to get us all back down to EBC before the forecast storm hit. So a 3:30 a.m. breakfast was scheduled with plans to head down by 4:00 a.m. It was 7 degrees fahrenheit in our tent when my alarm woke Ty and I. Everything we touched was frozen. The roof of the tent shed ice crystals on us when we bumped it. Several times I had to stop and warm my hands against my abdomen. But we made it to breakfast then shouldered our packs. 

A well-known and highly accomplished Sherpa named Toshi was assigned to stand in for Mingma in leading me down to EBC. But when the time came to leave he instructed me to go drink coffee in the dining tent while he dealt with another sick Sherpa.  Very short of breath and registering an alarmingly low SpO2, this Sherpa was dosed with Niphedipine and placed on bottled oxygen.  An hour went by and the man’s SpO2 improved to the low 60’s. At this point he was be able to descend to the clinic at EBC with the help of other Sherpas and continued bottled oxygen. We descended together, at a slow a measured pace. The sick Sherpa was fine. 

May 7, 2013
Rest day at EBC

 Shower. Shave. Laundry. Call Mom. 

I called Lin. It was so good to hear her voice. As she has been throughout this whole strange journey, Lin was supportive, inspiring, and spoke from a place of love. We discussed the days ahead and my plans for the upcoming summit attempt, agreeing that focus on each step would be the key. It is easy to be swept up in the vast scenery or a complex pitch you know is coming. Staying present will be essential. 

The Climbers invited the Sherpas to join us for a movie in the group tent after dinner. The feature was “Anchorman” with Will Ferrell. The humor did not always translate well, but the Sherpas definitely thought the fight scene was funny. 


Liking the O2 system.

May 8, 2013
Rest day at EBC. Trek to Gorak Shep

Myself and the Australian member of the team are typically the first up on rest days. I bring a handfull of Starbucks instant coffee packets (decaf) down to the dinning tent and we enjoy a relaxed cup. By then the sun is touching camp so I drag a chair outside and have a second cup while the rest of the team files by for breakfast. 

This morning we learned the sad news of another Sherpa (not IMG) having passed. He was crossing the yellow band above camp 3 last night and stumbled. Though a fixed line was available, he had not clipped into it. He fell 3,000 feet down the Lhotse face. This set me to thinking about Mingma and his family with their own recent loss.  I took  a stick of incense up to the Puja Altar and left it there as an offering. 

Greg Venovage
After breakfast Big Boss held our instruction session on how to use the oxygen bottles and masks.  I did not expect to feel any different breathing the denser air, given the many weeks we have acclimated to Base camp and higher. But the instant clarity that came to my head left me wondering how I have managed to feed and cloth myself up to this point. In addition to allowing me to climb higher into extremely thin air, this supplemental oxygen should also keep me feeling warmer and lessen the risk of frostbite. 

Now we wait. The team has completed all phases of preparation for a summit bid of Everest. We expect the rope fixing to be done by May 10, and we will send our first group to the summit at the next weather window after that. Once a summit attempt is launched from EBC it takes 4 days to arrive at the top of Everest. So the most likely date for myself to summit is still May 18 ...depending on weather.  I hope to have one more opportunity to post to this blog before then. In any case, I promise to blog the details of the climb upon returning to EBC. But for those of you who would like a more timely update I encourage checking the IMG Trip Report                       which should post daily updates at http://www.mountainguides.com/everest-south13.shtml

          Yard Sale Questions ...   
I have been pricing & sorting for days ... with lots more to go !! I have used up pages and pages of $1 and $2 stickers if that gives you a hint at what kind of deals there will be !! DEEP DEEP DISCOUNTS !!!
This Sunday from 9am to 2pm. 

Here are some answers to questions that I have been getting ...
1. Weather ... my crystal ball is broken so I have to rely on Environment Canada, lol. For now it shows light showers but the forecast changes every day. If it rains, the sale will be postponed until the next Sunday. I really won't know until late Saturday night or very early Sunday morning. I will post here though if it is postponed.
2. There is no indoor venue. If it rains, the sale will be held outside on thenext Sunday. Or the next sunny Sunday. I don't have room in the store to hold the sale.
3. The sale starts at 9am ... no early birds please ! We actually will have the driveway to the back parking lot blocked because we have to come in very early to set up. So the site will not be opened up until 9am. So no advantage to come early.
Sleep in, have a coffee ... 
4. Sending lists & orders ... sorry but I am straight out trying to get through 3 rooms of boxes - sorting & pricing. I really don't have time to pick out orders and it really isn't fair to those who show up for the sale. So it is an "in person" sale. Whatever is left will eventually be listed on Facebook and could then be purchased for mailing.
5. Cash or debit. No holds.
6. No early previews or items held. Sorry. Again, not fair to those who come out that morning.
7. The prices marked are the prices. There will not be any tax added. So that is the final price.  But, there are also no further discounts. The prices are SLASHED so the price is whatever is tagged.
8. Come prepared to find some great deals !

          Geek Culture: Sci-Fi, Superhero Movies and Comic Books

--Weird Al Yankovic "White and Nerdy"

It’s an intellectual free-for-all, an annual confab of pundits, theorists, free thinkers, party-liners, think-tankers, forecasters, futurists, historians, artists, writers, and all those who are willing to listen to 75 minute diatribes. It’s the Conference on World Affairs at the University of Colorado campus.

Left-leaning, sometimes predictable, yet interesting for its fresh look at the world. First full session for me this year, “Geek Culture: Sci-Fi, Superhero Movies and Comic Books.”

Jim Emerson, editor of RogerEbert.com said what ties super heroes together is a sense of regret, acceptance of their unique destiny, and great sacrifice to live the super hero life.

New York Post editorial page association editor Robert George (his blog is called "Ragged Thots") dropped some strong comic lore history on the folks, and then explained the peculiar difference between Bruce Wayne/Batman and Peter Parker/Spiderman. While Bruce Wayne is obsessed with vigilante justice as Batman, he grudgingly obliges his role as millionaire. Parker on the other hand would rather live his life as a normal young man, he reluctantly fulfills his duty as Spidey-hero. (Is this discussion getting geeky enough for you?)

George added that comic book heroes are “classic American mythology.” They help us solve our problems, explain our world.

Chicago Sun-Times/MacWorld columnist Andy Ihnatko answered the question from a coed “Am I a geek?” with the following definition: an obsession with mastering a certain thing, allowing for differences in others, willing to be different (as in dressing up in costume for a sci-fi convention), and not caring too much others think.

I guess Tina Turner was wrong. We do need heroes.

          Putin Accuses "Foreign Spy Agencies" Of Supporting Terrorism To Destabilize Russia   
Putin Accuses Foreign Spy Agencies Of Supporting Terrorism To Destabilize Russia In the first public accusation that "foreign spy agencies" are seeking to destabilize Russia made in recent years, during a meeting with Russia's foreign intelligence agency President Vladimir Putin said that "some foreign special services" are directly supporting extremist and terrorist groups to destabilize the situation near Russia’s borders, President Vladimir Putin said at a meeting with Russia’s foreign intelligence agency.

“In general, the growing activity of foreign special services against us and our allies is obvious,” Putin said quoted by Bloomberg during the televised speech in Moscow on Wednesday, without specifying which nations he was referring to. *“There are operations to influence the domestic political and social processes in our country.*”

Tangentially, the AP reported that according to an unclassified report by the Pentagon's Defense Intelligence Agency, released on Wednesday, *Kremlin leaders are convinced America is intent on regime change in Russia, *"a fear that is feeding rising tension and military competition between the former Cold War foes."

"The Kremlin is convinced the United States is laying the groundwork for regime change in Russia, a conviction further reinforced by the events in Ukraine," the report says, referencing the claims by President Vladimir Putin's government that the U.S. engineered the popular uprising that ousted Ukraine's Russia-friendly president, Viktor Yanukovich, in 2014. Russia responded by annexing Ukraine's Crimea region and supporting pro-Russian separatists in eastern Ukraine.



Thursday's report, prepared long before Trump's election, reflects the Pentagon's view of the global security picture shifting after nearly two decades of heavy American focus on countering terrorism and fighting relatively small-scale wars across the Middle East. Russia, in particular, is now at the center of the national security debate in Congress, fed by political divisions over how to deal with Putin and whether his military buildup, perceived threats against NATO and alleged election interference call for a new U.S. approach.



According to the AP, the 116-page report portrays Russia as increasingly wary of the United States. It cites Moscow's "deep and abiding distrust of U.S. efforts to promote democracy around the world and what it perceives as a U.S. campaign to impose a single set of global values." One almost wonders why.



"Moscow worries that U.S. attempts to dictate a set of acceptable international norms threatens the foundations of Kremlin power by giving license for foreign meddling in Russia's internal affairs," the report says. Titled "Russia Military Power," it is the agency's first such unclassified assessment in more than two decades.



The report also discusses recent military developments, with a focus on the middle east.



It cites the example of Moscow's 2015 military intervention in Syria. The Kremlin cast the effort as designed to combat Islamic State fighters. Washington saw Moscow largely propping up Assad by providing air support for the Syrian army's offensive against opposition forces.

 

The report says the Syria intervention is intended also to eliminate jihadist elements that originated on the former Soviet Union's territory to prevent them from returning home and threatening Russia. In any case, the report credits the intervention for having "changed the entire dynamic of the conflict, bolstering the Assad regime and ensuring that no resolution to the conflict is possible without Moscow's agreement."

 

"Nevertheless, these actions also belie a deeply entrenched sense of insecurity regarding a United States that Moscow believes is intent on undermining Russia at home and abroad," the report says.



The report harkens to Cold War days when the intelligence agency published a series of "Soviet Military Power" studies that defined the contours of the superpower rivalry. Those reports ended with the 1991 demise of the Soviet Union. Now they return, DIA's director, Marine Lt. Gen. Vincent R. Stewart, says, with an eye on the future of U.S.-Russian relations.

"*Within the next decade, an even more confident and capable Russia could emerge," *Stewart wrote in a preface to the report. No new, global ideological struggle akin to the Cold War is forecast, but the report cautions that Moscow "intends to use its military to promote stability on its own terms."

Which is why the "deep state", the Military-Industrial Complex. the neo-cons or whatever one wants to call the permanently bellicose wing in control, will *never *allow Trump to pursue a detente with Putin. To be sure, while Trump's campaign rhetoric was widely seen as sympathetic to Russia, ties have not improved in his first six months of his presidency. In April, *Trump said U.S.-Russian relations "may be at an all-time low." *Trump is expected to meet Putin for the first time at an international summit in Germany next week.

Meanwhile, to perpetuate the anti-Russia witch hunt, on Wednesday Rep. Adam Smith, the House Armed Services Committee's top Democrat, issued a "national security manifesto" on Russia. *He and a group of lawmakers writing in Time magazine cited the threat of "Putinism," which they termed "a philosophy of dictatorship" that seeks to extinguish democratic ideals such as government transparency by exploiting "discontented facets of democratic polities worldwide.*"

Which, of course, is not to be confused with CIA-ism, which is a philosophy of suberting any government around the globe with promises of globalist, credit-card driven expansion, and if that fails, with outright threats (and actions) to overthrow the existing regime by supporting its closest adversaries, both domestic and foreign.

Taking McCarthyism to the next level, at a Senate intelligence committee hearing Wednesday, Sen. Mark Warner of Virginia, the panel's ranking Democrat, said Russia is becoming more brazen.

*"Russia's goal is to sow chaos and confusion - to fuel internal disagreements and to undermine democracies whenever possible, and to cast doubt on the democratic process wherever it exists," *Warner said.

In other words, Russia is becoming just like the US... One can see why the Deep State and Democrats are so terrified. Reported by Zero Hedge 16 minutes ago.

          'Superstorm' crafts narrative from Sandy's wrath   
<>"Superstorm" (Dutton), by Kathryn Miles

It's been a weak hurricane season in the Atlantic so far, with little to worry U.S. coastal residents, but any forecaster will tell you: It only takes one storm to make a bad year.

In 2012, that one storm was Superstorm Sandy, a hurricane that grew larger even as it lost its tropical characteristics and combined with an early winter storm and blast of arctic air. The "Frankenstorm" slammed the mid-Atlantic coast with a devastating storm surge, causing an estimated $62 billion in damage and losses in the U.S., leaving millions without power and killing at least 125 people in the U.S. and 71 in the Caribbean. It's the second-costliest storm in U.S. history after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

Kathryn Miles' "Superstorm" explores the human drama that unfolded in the storm's path from its late October genesis in the southwestern Caribbean through its terrifying landfall near Brigantine, New Jersey.

Miles has crafted a true narrative around Sandy's track over the Atlantic, not just a forecasting play-by-play for weather nerds. She weaves in the history of the "hurricane hunters" that fly into storms to collect data, the limits of forecasting technology and the tricks of psychology and risk assessment that sent one doomed ship into Sandy's path. Amid the drama, Miles finds ways to flesh out the forecasters, emergency responders, victims and survivors whose stories converged in Sandy's wrath, making their plight immediate and relatable to any reader, not just coastal residents accustomed to weather hype.

If no more storm threats are looming on the horizon this year that leaves plenty of time to read Miles' wise and harrowing "Superstorm" — and to get prepared for the next disaster.

          Sure Things - By Evan Hammonds   

Even though we have a pretty lousy record of selecting winners of the Preakness Stakes (G1), despite its being perhaps the most formful Triple Crown race, there are three “sure things” on the agenda prior to the main event May 20.

First up, no matter what the weather forecast says before departing for Baltimore, it will change dramatically by the time of arrival. It never fails that the temperature will swing 20 degrees in either direction from its five-day prognostication before race day.

More importantly, the viable future of Pimlico—home to racing’s second jewel of the Triple Crown—will be discussed at length. Perhaps not talked about enough will be the resurgence of the breeding program in Maryland.

While Pimlico has a certain level of familiarity, it also has serious faults as the host site for a major sporting event. Earlier this year the Maryland Stadium Authority estimated it would cost more than $300 million to renovate “Old Hilltop,” leaving industry types on either side of the economic fence.

“There are believers on both sides,” said Robert “Willie” White, president of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association. “It’s the mayor and the people of Baltimore who would like it to stay in Baltimore. There are believers in the history and tradition that go along with the Preakness and Pimlico. Then there are others who say we just can’t afford to do that. We just have to realize we can only support one racetrack and keep it at the highest level.”

That “one racetrack” figures to be Laurel Park, which is closer to Washington, D.C., and has undergone extensive renovations over the last few seasons.

White sees the issue as a national one, not solely tied to Maryland and the Preakness.

“There is a realistic approach that needs to be taken to these things, and over the years we’re going to see racetracks start to thin out nationwide,” he said. “We’re not going to have a horse population large enough to support the number of tracks…so that is why it is becoming more and more important that you focus your efforts and have only the best available facilities.”

While the Thoroughbred population is not growing in North America, it is in Maryland. According to The Jockey Club’s Report of Mares Bred, 923 mares were covered in Maryland in 2016, the highest figure since the Great Recession hit in 2008 and well above the 548 mares bred at the state’s nadir in 2011 before a well-crafted program kicked in with subsidies from casinos.

“It’s been a team effort among the Maryland Thoroughbred Horsemen’s Association, the Maryland Horse Breeders, and the Maryland Jockey Club,” White said. “They’ve all worked hard together to see the industry improve.”

More mares mean more foals, and the state’s foal crop has grown from 393 in 2011 to 583 in 2015. While the stallion population is stagnant, one would expect those figures to begin an upward trajectory.

“We’ve lost Not For Love; we’ve lost Two Punch; a couple of very popular stallions over the last couple of years, so we need a new star to help us in that category,” White said. “We have a lot of new stallions that have their first year or two under their belt, and we’re waiting to see them prove something.”

Partnerships—both racing and breeding—are helping bolster the bottom line in Thoroughbred centers around the country, and Maryland is no exception.

“You have to have innovative ways to bring new people into the industry,” White said. “The Ponses (Josh and Michael Pons of Country Life Farm near Bel Air) have done this with their racing partnerships and are now doing it with their breeding partnerships. They have a good formula, and it’s bringing some better mares into Maryland and giving their stallions a good chance.

“The Ponses are not the kinds of guys who sit back; they are not waiting for someone else to make their success for them. That’s what has to happen in this industry. You have to have guys who are thinking outside the box and trying to make things happen.”

          Post re: The Brotherhood Of the Traveling Stopper...   

Alright, so I'm going to try to keep this relatively brief, so that I actually finish writing it. In short, Resurrection accompanied me for about 3 weeks around Washington and BC. For a lot of the time, we were searching for dry rock, and ended up doing more sport & bouldering than trad climbing, until we made it to Vantage.

During the first weekend that I had Resurrection, we were focused on Mt. Baker and doing some ski touring. We skied on Saturday on Mt. Shuksan (my first time skinning), and then on Sunday headed up Mt. Baker for a single-day ascent. I won't bore you climbers with mountaineering details, but we made it up to about 9600' before turning around due to crampon failure.

cdn-uploads.mountainproject.co... style="width: auto;" data-id="10740">

The next day, our goal was to head up to Squamish so that we could get on the Apron and do some longer multi-pitch climbing with Resurrection in tow. The forecast wasn't great, but we drove up anyways to see what we could make happen. We bouldered a couple of times that evening, and on Tuesday morning it was raining. The group I was with (myself included) wasn't comfortable with the amount of water we'd have to deal with on the Apron, so we headed to Cheakamus to do some sport climbing on some of the overhung crags before heading back to Bellingham.

On Wednesday, we again gambled with the weather and drove to Mt. Erie. I had a sport project that I wasn't able to send last year, and I wanted to go back to get on it again. We got a lucky break in the clouds and despite raining during the approach, Erie was dry for most of the morning.

cdn-uploads.mountainproject.co... style="width: auto;" data-id="10736" title="">

On Thursday we decided to do some planning, and see where we could go for some dry rock. Pretty much everything in the NW was going to rain, so we headed across the mountains to Vantage. Even there, it was raining when we arrived. I had never been on basalt before, and so we spent most of Friday sport climbing, and I was able to onsight my first 11.


cdn-uploads.mountainproject.co... style="width: auto; outline: red dashed 1px;" title="" data-id="10738">

On Saturday, a full week of climbing after getting Resurrection, we finally got to do some trad climbing. It was fairly relaxed, and was very helpful to help me get my head back into the trad leading game.

cdn-uploads.mountainproject.co... style="width: auto;" title="" data-id="10737">

cdn-uploads.mountainproject.co... style="width: auto;" title="" data-id="10741">

The following weekend, another friend and I went back to Vantage. It was insanely hot, so we were only able to climb early morning until about 11am, when most of the routes are in the sun. To make sure we checked the box on adventure climbing, we headed up an unknown route, one that we couldn't find in the guidebook or on here.

cdn-uploads.mountainproject.co... style="width: auto;" title="" data-id="10739">

All in, Resurrection was placed a handful of times, and helped me with my first experience on basalt, and with getting used to jamming.

          Ocean Wise Series – Part One    
Courtesy of Bruckner Chase, Ocean Positive, Ocean City, New Jersey.

Bruckner Chase's Ocean Positive and the Ocean City Swim Club are now part of the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration Weather Ready Nation Ambassador program.

They will launch a summer series on beach and ocean safety, science, and conservation.

This is Part One of the Ocean Wise Series: Building Safer, Stronger, Wiser And Faster Open Water And Ocean Athletes:

Swimming is an intellectual pursuit.

Winter pool time is spent mastering lane etiquette, stroke mechanics and interval protocols beside turbulence decreasing lane lines, but now it’s time to enter the more intimidating world of wind, waves and wildlife.

The best open water swimmers are not always the fastest, but rather those that can read, adapt and embrace challenging conditions that can change in an instant. The ocean in particular is not a place to put on headphones, program your watch and just head through the waves. Long before performance becomes a goal, safety and returning to shore has to come first.

Making sure every open water session begins and ends well requires planning and awareness with a knowledge base of the environment and indicators of when to go out and when to stay on shore. There is a reason that the mantra of every ocean athlete is, “When in doubt, don’t go out.”

Over the coming months the Ocean Wise Series is going to give you the resources, tools and insights that will make every training session, race or family outing to the shore safe and positive. As more small groups, clubs and training partners start looking out at the water as a training venue our starting point is going to be some best practices on evaluating conditions and making those critical plans on shore before getting even one toe wet.

The Ocean City Swim Club in Ocean City, New Jersey has been hosting weekly ocean workouts for over eight years. Here are the steps that the club goes through before every workout:

• Forecasting and Current Conditions with Apps: Surfline, SwellInfo, WeatherBug, Tides, AccuWeather, Windy, SeaStatus
• Forecasting and Current Conditions with websites: NOAA NWS Rip Currents, NOAA NWS Experimental Beach Forecast, NOAA National Data Buoy Center
• Ocean Safety, Science and Conservation Education: NOAA Ocean Today

All this provides the information to make a call. The challenging part becomes applying all that information to the planned workout. Race and workout organizers should be looking at all or most of these factors long before they set up, but only the swimmer can determine their own limits.

There are beach sessions with chest-high breaking waves and 15 mph winds that some athletes will love, but these are NOT the conditions for the beginner who just finished their first full winter of pool workouts for their first triathlon. Often a new athlete won’t fully know their abilities until they are in a challenging new situation. Whether that situation is a race or just a training session in a local lake the presence of trained, professional lifeguards capable of making the right decisions and actions are critical.

Especially when the ocean is involved even the best forecasting tools predicting ideal conditions can be wrong.

Even if there is no rain or thunder or fog...at the moment lifeguards, coaches and organizers have to anticipate what the conditions may be in an hour when there are tens or even hundreds of people swimming far offshore. Dangerous situations can come up, and this time of year dense fog is one of those. A fog bank can roll in within minutes and swimmers just 100 meters from shore may no longer be able to see land.

Any condition that affects visibility not only impacts a swimmer's ability to see a buoy, but also a lifeguard’s ability to see the swimmers. Forecasting and information always come down to having the confidence and wisdom to stand by the mantra, “When in doubt, don’t go out.”

Here’s a best practices timeline for making a call before any open water workout:

• Make a preliminary assessment the night before that should represent an 80% degree of confidence.
• Make a second assessment the morning of or roughly 2.5 to 1.5 hours before hitting the water with a 90% degree of confidence.
• Make a final decision at the shore with a 98% degree of confidence leaving that final 2% to the unexpected that may cut a swim short.
• Be prepared for the 2% by adding in some protective factors like the following:

o Always swim near a lifeguard
o Swim with recognized, professional coaches, organizers and race directors with safety protocols and equipment on-hand
o Let people know where you are and when you are going in
o Always have an emergency exit and safe zone plan to get out of the water
o Tow or carry floatation or rescue tubes for visibility and support
o Dress appropriately for before, during and after water time

          RIDERS HOLD DAY 2 OF WORK WEEK   

It was a cooler day than was forecast for Wednesday's Day 2 of the Saskatchewan Roughriders practice week. A mostly cloudy sky with brief sunny periods and 22 degrees Celsius greeted Canada's Team as they get set to the host the Winnipeg Blue Bombers in Saturday's Week 2 home opener (7:00 pm, TSN, 620 CKRM Rider Radio Network).

Here are some notes from the session:

1. Regarding a personnel update, the team still isn't prepared to declare RB Kienan LaFrance or WR Rob Bagg ready to play against Winnipeg. LaFrance has been out since the start of training camp with a lower body injury while Bagg missed last week's loss in Montreal with the same diagnosis.

2. Some of the Blue Bomber players have been talking a lot of noise leading up to the showdown, saying they plan to silence the Rider Nation in the Canada Day Clash. Riders Head Coach & GM Chris Jones says he hasn't heard it.

"I don't read the papers or the internet so I don't know what you're talking about," Jones laughed. "We just worry about us. We can't worry about what somebody else says. We've just gotta come out, work, play our game, and win a football game."

3. Regarding the stadium noise in the grand opening of New Mosaic Stadium, Blue Bomber receiver Weston Dressler told us on a conference call on Wednesday that Rider fans will be Rider fans.

"I don't expect them to be any different than old Mosaic," Dressler chuckled. "They're always rowdy, especially when Winnipeg's in town. I'm sure it'll be loud and, offensively, we'll have to deal with that crowd if we're going to be successful."

4. Rider QB Kevin Glenn said the team is set to unveil some new incentives for Rider fans to bring the noise on Saturday.

"I think we have some things in store from the JumboTron to guide things that way," Glenn smiled. "We got something for the fans to - how should I put it - to encourage or persuade the fans when to cheer, when to be loud and when not to be loud. We got something in store for 'em."

5. Regarding the latest return of Weston Dressler to the city where he made his name in the CFL, the Bismarck, ND product isn't entirely sure how his emotions will hit him.

"I'm not really quite sure what emotions will come up," Dressler explained. "I'm hoping that I dealt with all that last year, coming back and playing the old team. All that type stuff. Right now I feel like I'm a big part of the Winnipeg Blue Bombers and I just want to go in and win the first game in that new stadium."

6. Regarding which team has the advantage coming into this one; the Riders for having played last week or the Bombers for having a bye, Winnipeg QB Matt Nichols said that chatter is overrated.

"We had a couple battles with them last year," Nichols shrugged on the conference call. "I think we know what they're going to be bringing and they know what we'll be bringing. It's going to be a hard-nosed football game for four quarters and it's going to come down to who makes the big plays at the right times and who plays the last four minutes better."

Dyakowski on Wednesday
7. As an aside, veteran Rider lineman Peter Dyakowski is loving his time in Saskatchewan after being acquired in a trade with Toronto on the eve of training camp. "Everyday's a great day when you're a Roughrider," Dyakowski smiled as he pulled off his pads and shook hands with me after the workout.

I turned on my tape recorder and asked him why it's so great, on the record.

"We've got great coaches, I've got great linemates, great teammates, we have the best facility in the league and we've got the best fans in the league, so everything's wonderful," the Vancouver product glowed. "I wake up everyday with a smile on my face and I rented a place eight blocks from the stadium so I get to walk to work everyday, or if I get a ride, it's only a minute-and-a-half commute. Not so bad!"

8. The Blue Bombers are favoured by 1-point for Saturday's game, and the forecast at kickoff calls for sunshine and 24 degrees Celsius.

9. The Canadian Football League (CFL) announced today:

Montreal Alouettes defensive back Mikael Charland was fined for a tourist hit on Saskatchewan Roughriders safety Mike Edem.

Saskatchewan Roughriders offensive lineman Thaddeus Coleman was fined for a dangerous block on Montreal Alouettes defensive end John Bowman.

Ottawa REDBLACKS linebacker Serderius Bryant was fined for a late hit on Calgary Stampeders returner Roy Finch.

Saskatchewan receiver Naaman Roosevelt was fined for a crackback block on Montreal Alouettes defensive back, Dondre Wright.

The CFL also announced the following preseason discipline:

Calgary Stampeders offensive lineman Brad Erdos was fined for a low hit on BC Lions defensive lineman Junior Luke on June 6.

Ottawa REDBLACKS offensive lineman Pierce Burton was fined for a tourist hit on Hamilton Tiger-Cats linebacker Matt Wells during the June 8th game.

Hamilton Tiger-Cats linebacker Kavell Conner was fined for a high hit on Ottawa REDBLACKS quarterback Drew Tate on June 8.

Winnipeg Blue Bombers defensive lineman Padric Scott was fined for hitting Edmonton Eskimos quarterback Zach Kline on June 15.

Ottawa REDBLACKS offensive lineman Evan Johnson was fined for a late and low block on Montreal Alouettes linebacker Nicolas Boulay on June 15.

BC Lions linebacker Solomon Elimimian was fined for a low hit on Saskatchewan Roughriders receiver Jenson Stoshak on June 16.

          The Good, the Bad, and The Ugly of Being Part of an Online Support Group   

I honestly did not feel the need to seek a support group, let alone a support group on Facebook, when I received an invitation to join first one group and then another. Soon I was hooked. I can easily now spend an hour reading and replying to posts about children with needs similar to my son’s.

For the first time, I was looking at pictures of families like mine. I saw posts about challenging moments, illness, and death. I saw honesty and vulnerability, pain and sadness, and I liked that because to me that is reality--- I see that where I work very frequently. I have cried over children lost and I’ve been filled with fear for what might come our way. I have also rejoiced for the happy moments and the recoveries. There is a time to cry and a time to laugh.

Being part of an online support group showed me as well what’s going better and worse for others. For someone like me, who often falls prey to social comparison, this is a double-edged sword. On one hand, I’ve seen how good we’ve had it---no tracheostomy, no frequent hospitalizations, a healthy immune system, and seizures under good control. On the other hand, I have felt a mixture of disillusion and guilt when seeing children doing much better developmentally than my son. I wish, for instance, that my son would reach for my face like many others do.

Disillusion disappears the moment I look at Caleb. Truth is, I not only love him, but adore him the way he is, and he does not need to be able to do anything more for disillusion to be replaced by gratitude and contentment. Guilt, on the contrary, lingers. It tells me there is always something more that I should do, or that I did not do. It is my fault. I haven’t been diligent enough.

In our group, families whose children are doing well share their progress and victories to encourage and push back the negativity and prejudice permeating the medical community in the world of trisomy 13 and 18, particularly full trisomy. The goal is to send a message loud and clear which is in sharp contrast with the doom and gloom often forecasted by doctors because of the severity of the health problems and the developmental delays which accompany both diagnoses.


This message is absolutely necessary as many parents have been told there is either nothing to do or nothing worth doing to save their children when, in fact, often there is. Many, therefore, have been encouraged, even pressured, to terminate their pregnancies. Many have been assured their children won’t have “quality of life” when, actually, a parent’s definition of “quality” often times differs greatly from that of a doctor's. The unspoken or straightforward question seems to be, “Is a life like that of our children worth living?” and for those in the group the answer is a resounding yes!

If doctors could look at our pictures and our videos, but more than anything, if they could read our posts, they would see that we cherish our children’s lives no matter how short and how limited. They’d be surprised to see quite a few kids doing remarkably well developmentally, beyond many doctors’ imaginations---kids sitting, crawling, starting to walk, and saying a few words. Yes, reaching these milestones is a big deal for a trisomy 13 or 18 child!

To be fair and honest, I do believe that every now and then we get carried away in our attempt to offer hope and to counterbalance the doom and gloom message. We can swing to the other extreme. We can start to ignore the spectrum. We can start generalizing and painting all doctors with the same brush making it hard to expect anything good from them, making us suspicious of their motives. Unintentionally, the message seems to become “because our child can or did, so can yours,” as if it were a matter of sheer determination.

Our group is formed of people whose children are long-term survivors and of people whose kids died in utero, shortly after birth, or a long time ago. Many women turn to our group after a prenatal diagnosis, and I can say with all confidence that we become a lifeline for them. I know they would have been for me, had I found out prenatally that my son had full trisomy 13. Yet this is not without risk.

Parents starting on the road of bitter-sweet assume those in the group understand, and we do because many of us have been in their shoes. So they open up their lives and invite us into their prenatal journeys asking for advice and looking for hope, perhaps never fearing that we will question their decisions afterwards, until it happens, and people get hurt. Both the seeker and the giver of advice walk a fine line. We are always taking a chance when we expose our lives.

I used to think Facebook was not for me. People looked too happy and pretty, always smiling against beautiful backgrounds, having fun surrounded by friends, while I felt lonely, anxious, and exhausted. Being part of an online support group has allowed me to meet others, whose lives look more like mine. Even though the experience isn’t always safe, and we have our moments when opinions clash, I am grateful for the opportunity to grieve and celebrate with others; I am grateful for the opportunity to learn and to be challenged by the example of perseverance and determination of many parents who always expect more for their children. And believe it or not, it has eased my entrance into the world of ‘mainstream’ Facebook too.

          Artificial intelligence/Machine learning   
  • Is your AI being handed to you by Google? Try Apache open source – Amazon's AWS did

    Surprisingly, the MXNet Machine Learning project was this month accepted by the Apache Software Foundation as an open-source project.

    What's surprising about the announcement isn't so much that the ASF is accepting this face in the crowd to its ranks – it's hard to turn around in the software world these days without tripping over ML tools – but rather that MXNet developers, most of whom are from Amazon, believe ASF is relevant.

  • Current Trends in Tools for Large-Scale Machine Learning

    During the past decade, enterprises have begun using machine learning (ML) to collect and analyze large amounts of data to obtain a competitive advantage. Now some are looking to go even deeper – using a subset of machine learning techniques called deep learning (DL), they are seeking to delve into the more esoteric properties hidden in the data. The goal is to create predictive applications for such areas as fraud detection, demand forecasting, click prediction, and other data-intensive analyses.

  • Your IDE won't change, but YOU will: HELLO! Machine learning

    Machine learning has become a buzzword. A branch of Artificial Intelligence, it adds marketing sparkle to everything from intrusion detection tools to business analytics. What is it, exactly, and how can you code it?

  • Artificial intelligence: Understanding how machines learn

    Learning the inner workings of artificial intelligence is an antidote to these worries. And this knowledge can facilitate both responsible and carefree engagement.

  • Your future boss? An employee-interrogating bot – it's an open-source gift from Dropbox

    Dropbox has released the code for the chatbot it uses to question employees about interactions with corporate systems, in the hope that it can help other organizations automate security processes and improve employee awareness of security concerns.

    "One of the hardest, most time-consuming parts of security monitoring is manually reaching out to employees to confirm their actions," said Alex Bertsch, formerly a Dropbox intern and now a teaching assistant at Brown University, in a blog post. "Despite already spending a significant amount of time on reach-outs, there were still alerts that we didn't have time to follow up on."


          Tanjong Agas, Pekan, Pahang ~ Mahaguru58 Travelogue, May 2017 Pt.1   

Recently I was on a road trip with my wife from our 2nd home in Kuantan to the village of Tanjong Agas which is located at the tip of the land projecting out to the South China Sea off the Sultanate of Pahang's royal town of Pekan.

It has been more than 8 years since we last visited the place. A lot of changes have taken place since then and we saw development change the way villagers over there live.

I was actually looking forward to seeing an Orang Asli hut which I saw situated on a river bank close to the sea back then at Tanjong Agas. 

I was a bit sad to see that the hut was no more. The Orang Asli family whom I saw back then must have moved into more permanent housing.

One scene I remember was the mudflat shoreline riddled with what I believe to be the entrances to the nests of a shrimp like crustacean which is related to the lobster species.

The muddy mounds which I believe to be the entrances to the nests of the Mantis Shrimp or 'Udang Ketak' [photo above] as we Malaysians call them. 


I remember writing about Tanjong Agas way back in May 2009 but sad to now see just blank spaces in my blog article where I had posted some photos of the place. The image hosting service which I had used before seems not to be in service anymore thus the missing images. 
Nevertheless, now with Google's improved image hosting enabled here in Blogger itself, I am happy to share with you the visuals that I managed to capture during my visit there recently.


Not everyone gets the opportunity to travel and visit far off places like this. I for one am lucky to be married to my darling who is from the East Coast State of Pahang. Hence the chance to explore places like this.


Tanjong Agas has river tributaries like this leading to the South China Sea. I saw many little boats like the above or 'sampan' as they are referred to here in Malaysia being tied to simple wooden jetties or just embedded poles by the riverbank.


There was this picturesque house on the riverbank located at the junction of two river tributaries. Looked very unique.


It has this unique looking roof unlike the many traditional Malay houses which we see in the kampongs @ Malay villages. Quite appealing to a photographer like me.

          Outside every time   
So I have not been posting because I have not been inside so much as outside at places like this:
{picture not the greatest but I snapped it really quick on my phone the other night}


Because the weather is beautiful right now
 It is warm, it is sunny, it is not raining & so we have to be outside every second that we can because in a blink it will be gone.  My house was even hot the other night. Hot!   I could not believe it was so hot we all had a hard time going to sleep.  Opening the windows, turning on the fans early in the evening to cool the house down is a new concept around here & I am loving every second of it.  
So, until the weather turns I again I will be an infrequent visitor because as a wise woman I know said something like, "I will pick  real life and being outside every time".  
That is not an exact quote from Natalie because I could not find the post where she said that but I remember the gist of it being burned into my brain when I read it.  Because she was so right and I had not been doing that.  I had not been seizing those moments with my kids like I should have... but I am now.  

*If I find the post I will link it here.  You shoudl go check out her blog though because she is an amazing photographer and incredible person.  I keep trying to lure her here to England but so far no such luck :)  Natalie if you read this you need to come !!!!!!

          Police numbers to be cut in Lincs   
Police numbers in Lincolnshire are likely to be cut as a result of the draconian ConDem Coalition austerity package.

So what does Tory MP John Hayes for South Holland and the Deepings have to say about that, I wonder.

I distinctly recall him promising MORE police not less in his general election leaflets which dropped on my mat only a few months ago.

Mr Hayes and his gang can't say they didn't know there was a big deficit - after all they campaigned on that very issue to get elected.

And after the election, official figures showed that the deficit was not as big as forecast before the election.

So will Mr Hayes be campaigning against the austerity package which is resulting in his election promises being broken within months...?

Let's hear it Mr Hayes!

          Scotiabank joins growing list of those issuing Real Estate bubble warnings   


Well another day and it seems another senior mainstream finance wizard is shouting out warnings of impending doom in the overblown real estate market in our country.

Did all the bear bloggers somehow get outed as bank economists this month?

The latest is Scotiabank CEO Brian Porter who says the Toronto and Vancouver housing markets will have to correct at some point.

"Trees don't grow to the sky and markets will correct at some stage here,'' Porter told analysts Tuesday.

This comes on the heels of Bank of Montreal’s chief economist, Douglas Porter, stating,"Let’s drop the pretense. The Toronto housing market — and the many cities surrounding it — are in a housing bubble” and Sun Life’s Chief Investment Officer Sadiq Adatia who said,"eventually we are going to see this market kind of stop and then come off a cliff, the longer we stay in this run-up, the bigger the downturn is going to be.”

You really can't get much more specific that this for advice on where things are going.

Of course, if you want confirmation that everything's okay and you should 'buy, buy, buy' we turn to the real estate industry and Mark Renzoni, president of global commercial real estate giant CBRE.

Renzoni had just wrapped up a speech at the CBRE's annual Canadian Market Outlook attended by about 1,400 brokers, developers and landlords at the Toronto Convention Centre. Afterwards he gave an interview to the Toronto Star in which he did his Renzoni best Alfred E. Neuman impression and advised us:
Bubble. What bubble? 
Toronto's soaring home prices are in line with the reality of other world cities such as New York, Hong Kong and London, says Mark Renzoni, president of global commercial real estate giant CBRE .
"The market is fairly balanced. It's not being driven by foreign capital. It's being driven by Canadians, moving up, buying for the first time," he told the Star, following a speech at CBRE's annual market forecast event. 
"There's great jobs, there's a sense of optimism, there's confidence in the job market and interest rates are low," said Renzoni, who suggested that concerns about foreign speculation in the Toronto housing market are overblown.
So there you have it. And c'mon... let's face it. Those banking types, they're all closet wearing, tin foil hat sportin' doomers. Right?

          ‘Mysterious’ sea creature with furry tail washes ashore in Russia’s Far East   

The following was published by RT on July 01, 2015: The enigmatic remains of a giant marine animal with a furry tail found in Russia’s Far East have puzzled locals and social media, but scientists have managed to identify the odd creature. A mysterious sea animal washed ashore near the airport at Shakhtersk on Sakhalin Island this weekend, Sakhalin Media web portal reported on Wednesday. The remains, a few meters in length, featured a furry tail and a huge nose, making it very difficult to identify the creature. Social media reacted to pictures posted online with a variety of explanations for the appearance of a never-before-seen creature in Russia. While it reminded some people of an ancient dinosaur, the most popular guess was that it was a Ganges River dolphin from India. “Probably, our summer is so cold that even the Indian Dolphins getting into local waters are covered with fur,” a commentator joked. However, according to experts, it would be impossible for a fresh water dolphin to survive the swim in the salty ocean. Besides, they don’t have any fur and are smaller in size. “We have gathered a group of scientists. We studied all the versions and came to the conclusion that the fossils found ashore belong to a whale cub,” Nikolay Kim, Deputy Head of the Forecasting department of the Sakhalin Research Institute of Fisheries and Oceanography, told Sakhalin Media. Kim added that the cub must have been a giant beaked whale, a species that is quite common for the region, so the discovery is a“no wonder.” Besides, all dolphins and whales are born with a hair coat that disappears with age. Berardius bairdii, also called “giant bottlenose whales,” is the largest of all beaked whales, reaching up to 12 meters in length, and found in the North Pacific. It is listed in the Convention on the Conservation of Migratory Species of Wild Animals (CMS).

          Wed Post #1: Is Horgan as incompetent as Adrian Dix?   


A few years back we criticized the BCNDP: before the election for choosing a Dix - a candidate the electorate would have difficulty voting for; and after the election for choosing Horgan - a candidate who we've suggested wasn't the right person for the job if the BCNDP wants to form the next government.

We see little today to alter that impression.

As you will recall our current Premier, Krusty, adeptly remade the BC Liberals after the resignation of Gordon Campbell and leveraged the built in weaknesses that Dix brought to the table as the BCNDP candidate in the last election (his inherent ties to the corrupt Glen Clark government) and swept to a victory almost no one saw coming on election night. A victory on par for shock value that Donald Trump recently executed over Hillary Clinton.

Four years later, Krusty had seemly failed to heed the lessons of the Gordon Campbell implosion and - until last summer - looked destined for a loss in the upcoming May Provincial elections.

In early 2016 the BC Liberals were being hammered by the BCNDP's David Eby.

Eby is a relative newcomer and a bit of a rising star. He first shot to prominence when he was elected the BCNDP MLA for Vancouver-Point Grey in the 2013 provincial election shocker. In an upset victory for the ages, victory was tempered for Krusty by the fact Eby actually defeated her in Clark's own affluent west side Vancouver riding by 1,063 votes.

Krusty was forced to get into the house through an Okanagan by-election months later.

Since then, as housing critic, Eby has masterfully leveraged the havoc that massive worldwide excess credit is wreaking on the Lower Mainland.

This is no small accomplishment considering it's the policies of the Bank of Canada, CMHC and federal government that are to blame, not the BC Provincial Government.

But inaction by Krusty to do what she could to mitigate the damage was creating a rising tide of public resentment. Eby acurrately painted the BC Liberals as being in bed with their Real Estate Development cronies and tied that connection into exacerbating the Vancouver situation.

It struck a chord with the public and Eby was making massive inroads into the BC Libs political support.

Some even wondered if Eby's performance was Leader worthy.

Krusty responded - big time. In a move that astonished even this humble scribe, the BC Liberals imposed a 15% Foreign Buyers tax. Krusty read the mood of the people and moved with lightening speed to enact a significant policy change.

It was roundly cheered by many - both as significant and potentially effective.

By mid September, 2016 the BC Liberals were able to ride the benefits of both a runaway housing market and their attempts to contain it. They announced that, "the B.C. government had raked in $2.2 billion in revenue from the property transfer tax and the new 15-per-cent tax on foreign buyers of Metro Vancouver homes."

That’s a billion dollars more than the government had projected.

As the National Post noted, "That enormous windfall caused Liberal MLAs to break out into a spontaneous conga line through the legislature. Finance Minister Mike de Jong was forecasting a surplus of $1.94 billion, up from an earlier projection of $264 million. He then announced that $500 million from the property tax would fund a housing affordability program and another $400 million would go into the B.C. prosperity fund “as a legacy for future generations,” he said. And this, for the cherry on top: The surplus allowed the government to scrap a planned four-per-cent increase in medical service plan premiums. It wasn’t as tasty a treat as an announcement to revamp or scrap the loathsome MSP entirely would have been. But it did make the medicine go down more easily."

Krusty had neutered the BCNDP criticisms and turned the tide heading into the May 2017 Provincial election.

But in the last three weeks there has been an astonishing about face in the BC Liberal position. Faced with a total collapse in real estate sales (luxury sales down 91% and Vancouver home sales plunged 40%) Krusty has been under enormous pressure to undo the steps she took last September.

Finally she cracked, backtracked and bowed to the pressures of the Real Estate Developers - to the major donors to BC Lib political coffers.

So where is David Eby as this happens? He has been all but invisible.

And now as Toronto housing market starts replicating the excesses seen in Vancouver, the Bank of Montreal publicly declares that Toronto's housing market in a bubble.

And what is a bubble as per BMO economist Douglas Porter?;
“It’s when prices become dangerously detached from economic fundamentals and start rising strongly simply because people believe they will keep rising strongly, encouraging more buying."
That's a definition that describes Vancouver to a tee.

So here you have Canada's major banks finally calling the situation for what it is. And in the midst of it all, Krusty and the BC Liberals are throwing gasoline on a raging fire by gutting the 15% Foreign Buyers tax and introducing the new 'first time homebuyers' giveaway. And it appears to be directly linked to threats by BC Real Estate Developers to yank political donations.

Why isn't David Eby front and center holding the BC Liberal's feet to the fire over this?

You have to wonder if there is a backstory within the BCNDP here.

          Low Volatility Increasing Market Tension for the S&P 500 in Week 3 of June 2017   

For a market where the S&P 500 isn't changing very much, there's a remarkable about of tension building up in it. Or more accurately, there is tension building in the halls of the big investment banks where big bets are being made, such as JPMorgan, whose top quantitative analyst is seeing great cause for concern that hasn't translated into market volatility (via ZeroHedge):

After getting virtually every market inflection point in 2015, and early 2016, so far 2017 has not been Marko Kolanovic's year, whose increasingly more bearish forecasts have so far been foiled repeatedly by the market, and the same systematic traders that he periodically warns about. As a reminder, his most recent warning came last week, when he cautioned that even a modest rebound in VIX could lead to dramatic losses for vol sellers. As a reminder, here is the punchline from his latest note:

Days like May 17th and similar events "bring substantial risk for short volatility strategies. Given the low starting point of the VIX, these strategies are at risk of catastrophic losses. For some strategies, this would happen if the VIX increases from ~10 to only ~20 (not far from the historical average level for VIX). While historically such an increase never happened, we think that this time may be different and sudden increases of that magnitude are possible. One scenario would be of e.g. VIX increasing from ~10 to ~15, followed by a collapse in liquidity given the market’s knowledge that certain structures need to cover short positions.

So in light of a market that refuses to post even the smallest of drawdowns (we are not sure if the words "selling", "correction" or "crash" have been made illegal yet), has Kolanovic thrown in the towel and declared smooth seas ahead? To the contrary: in a note released late last night, he echoes warnings made recently by both Citi and BofA, and predicts that receding monetary accommodation from ECB and BOJ will likely lead to "market turmoil, and a rise in volatility and tail risks" and just in case there is some confusion, he reiterates what he said last week, namely that the "key risk of option selling programs is market crash risk."

What Kolanovic is describing is a realistic mechanism by which stock prices might suddenly change dramatically for the worse. But is there anything to it?

That's where we have an angle on the story. Going by our dividend futures-based model, we would see that kind of potential plunge in stock prices as a sudden shift in investor focus from 2017-Q4, where our model suggests that investors are largely holding their attention at this time, to instead focus on 2017-Q3, where if such an event happened, it would likely coincide with a 300-350 point decline in the value of the S&P 500.

Alternative Futures - S&P 500 - 2017Q2 - Standard Model - Snapshot on 23 June 2017

Now, here's the catch. For that to happen, something would have to fundamentally change in the expectations that investors have about the future to compel them to focus on 2017-Q3 instead of 2017-Q4.

One entity with the power to do just that is the Federal Reserve, which can in effect "command" investors to focus on 2017-Q3 through the statements its officials make about their plans for the timing of the Fed's next change in the Federal Funds Rate, which would affect all short term interest rates in the U.S. At present, our model suggests that investors only see a 16% probability of them taking that kind of action in or by its September 2017 Federal Open Market Committee meeting, but some Fed officials have been pushing in that direction, which explains why investors are not 100% focused on 2017-Q4 as the most likely timing for the Fed's next interest rate adjustment.

Another factor that can shift the attention of investors is the changing expectations for future earnings in the companies that make up the S&P 500. For example, should oil prices fall even further than they have in the last several weeks, that could reignite the concern that the oil and gas sector of the U.S. economy is in for a new round of economic distress, which could lead investors to focus on these companies in the near term, pulling the index down along the way.

Or, oil prices could rise sharply, which would both boost the oil and gas sector of the U.S. economy while straining other sectors, which would also have the same effect. Or, they could rise just enough, contributing to the kind of inflation that would potentially prompt the Fed to pull the trigger on its next rate hike sooner than investors are expecting today.

In all this, the random onset of new information is the potential trigger for unleashing a significant change in the S&P 500, where the interactive dynamics are both very complex and periodically chaotic.

And that's just considering how changes in how far forward in time investors are focusing their attention might affect stock prices. If the expectations for future dividends themselves change, that would very directly affect stock prices, which adds a whole other level of complexity in how stock prices behave.

Speaking of which, if you want to know which scenario might apply before Kolanovic's mechanism becomes engaged, you might want to keep up on the information coming into the market....

Elsewhere, Barry Ritholtz summarized the positives and negatives for the economy for Week 3 of June 2017.


          The Return of the Recession Probability Track   

How likely is it that the U.S. economy will go into recession sometime in the next year?

The combination of rising short term interest rates and falling yields for long term bonds is often considered to be a harbinger of recession in the U.S. economy. And with the Fed having left its Zero Interest Rate Policy behind while the yields on long-term U.S. Treasuries have been falling in recent weeks, we thought it was time to dust off the version of the Recession Probability Track visualization tool that we introduced in September 2007 to indicate the odds that the U.S. economy would be in recession up to a year later.

Back then, the historical data we showed in our Recession Probability Track indicated that the odds of a recession beginning in the next year had already peaked back at 50% back on 4 April 2007, which is to say that it was signaling that there was at least even odds of the U.S. having a recession begin by 4 April 2008. As it turned out, the National Bureau of Economic Research determined that the U.S. economy expanded all the way through December 2007, before beginning to contract into recession in January 2008, where what we now call the "Great Recession" is considered to have begun in December 2007, coinciding with the peak of the preceding period of economic expansion, marking Month 0 of the recession that would last until the NBER determined that it bottomed in June 2009.

The last time we showed the Recession Probability Track was 6 November 2008. Just over a month later, the Fed would implement its Zero Interest Rate Policy, which would render the Recession Probability Track useless as a recession prediction tool for the next 7 years, until the Fed stopped holding its thumb on the zero end of the scale in December 2015.

Today, some four small interest rate hikes later, the Fed can still be considered to be applying pressure at that end of the scale, but not so much as to prevent the Recession Probability Track from registering a non-zero probability....

Recession Probability Track, 2 January 2014 through 19 June 2017

At 0.17%, we find that there's very little probability of what the NBER might someday declare to be a full-blown recession breaking out in the U.S. economy sometime between now and 19 June 2018. At least, not one propositioned on Jonathan Wright's yield curve-based recession forecasting model, which factors in the one-quarter average spread between the 10-year and 3-month constant maturity U.S. Treasuries and the corresponding one-quarter average level of the Federal Funds Rate. If you'd like to do that math for yourself, we have also built a very popular tool to help with that!

That doesn't mean however that the U.S. economy might escape without experiencing some level of distress. As we saw from mid-2014 through 2016 in oil and gas production states in particular, along with some other states whose major industries are linked to the health of that sector of the economy, it is possible for some degree of significant economic contraction to occur without leading to a national recession.

For other takes on the same data trends and what it might mean for the prospects of a U.S. recession, be sure to check out Kevin Erdmann's thoughts on the flattening yield curve and Joshua Brown's perception that flattening is not threatening, as well as Mike Shedlock's contrarian speculation from a month ago.

Finally, we should also note that China has seen its yield curve invert in recent months, where our recession forecasting tool has become increasingly popular among readers there, even though it wasn't specifically designed to consider China's economic situation and history, so we don't know how well it might work for assessing that nation's recession odds.


          Roiling Under the Surface with the S&P 500 in Week 2 of June 2017   

The Federal Reserve surprised no one with the announcement that its Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) had voted to hike U.S. short term interest rates by a quarter point.

For our dividend futures-based model for forecasting the S&P 500, investors appeared fully focused on 2017-Q2 in setting stock prices on the day of the Fed's announcement, which given the influence that the Fed has over the future expectations of investors, was to be expected.

Alternative Futures - S&P 500 - 2017Q2 - Standard Model - Snapshot on 16 June 2017

But what happened after that is somewhat telling. Although the top line number for the value of the S&P 500 didn't change much, the action of stock prices in the days following the announcement combined with the week's major economic news (and to be honest, in the weeks preceding the announcement) suggest a division within the component companies that make up the index has intensified over what we observed in Week 1 of June 2017.

Where there that gets interesting is that what the S&P 500 is communicating about the expected timing of the Fed's next rate hike action is very different from what other futures-based models are communicating.

Our model suggests that investors are currently betting on 2017-Q4 as the likely timing for the Fed's next rate hike, currently giving about a 72% probability of that being the case, with the remainder banking on the Fed taking action in 2017-Q3. CME Group's Fedwatch model however is currently giving almost the opposite odds between the two quarters, with an 84% probability that the FOMC will act to hike its Federal Funds Rate at the conclusion of its 20 September 2017 meeting.

Update 2:30 PM EDT: We stand corrected, where we appear to have gotten our wires crossed in reading the FedWatch FFR futures! According to CNBC, "Market expectations for a September rate hike are just 13 percent, according to the CME Group's FedWatch tool." That's a lot closer to what the dividend futures are telling us.

It will be fun to watch how both indicators evolve over the next several weeks. From the perspective of our dividend futures-based model, it will take some substantial good economic news to boost the odds that the Fed will next hike interest rates in September 2017, which would be accompanied by a decline in stock prices. Conversely, if that news is bad and the Fed is compelled to delay its next action until later in 2017, then the S&P 500 would find itself drifing sideways to slightly higher in the weeks ahead.

Right now, we think that the context of the current market environment from the major market news stories of the second full week of June 2017 are supporting what dividend futures appear to be anticipating for the future for the S&P 500, but here they are so you can judge for yourself.

          The Expected Future for S&P 500 Dividends   

A story for investors in a single chart: the quantified expectations of the S&P 500's future dividends per share, as projected 2017-Q2 through 2018-Q2, as told by two different sets of dividend futures!

The Expected Future for S&P 500 Dividends Per Share, Snapshot on 23 May 2017

The story is told by our two main sources for information about the expectations of future dividends for the S&P 500: CME Group and IndexArb. Here are some quick notes about the data....

  • IndexArb uses a "bottoms-up" approach to estimating the dividends per share of the S&P 500 index, built up from the projected cash dividend payments projected for each of the index' dividend paying component firms after accounting for each firm's market capitalization. The CME Group's projected dividends are produced through a more "top-down" approach, where the trading of options contracts linked to future S&P 500 dividend payouts sets the projected dividend per share level for future quarters extending out through the current and next four quarters.
  • The "quarters" for both sources run from the end of the third Friday of the month ending the previous quarter through the end of the third Friday of the month ending the indicated quarter. As such, the data reported for both sources will not match with the quarterly dividend data reported by Standard and Poor for the S&P 500, since S&P follows regular calendar quarters when reporting dividends per share for the index.
  • Because of that term mismatch, S&P's reported dividends and the dividend futures will tend to greatly differ from each other for the data that applies to the last quarter of the year and to the first quarter of the next year. This apparent discrepancy arises because a number of firms that pay annual dividends will pay them out during the last week of the year, or in the case of firms that pay variable dividends, where they'll pay their largest dividends of the year during that last week, with both dividend paying strategies affected by tax considerations. Where dividend futures are concerned, that mismatch in the terms covered by a quarter will most often make Q4 dividends appear low and Q1 dividends appear high compared to the S&P's "official" dividends per share accounting.
  • IndexArb's dividend futures data follows a cumulative payout approach, where the value for each indicated quarter represents the projected total dividends per share that will be paid out between the current day and the third Friday of the month ending the indicated quarter. Values for the actual dividends per share can be calculated by taking the indicated dividends per share that apply for the quarter of interest and subtracting the indicated dividends per share for the preceding quarter. For the current quarter, the last time that math can be done is on the last day that the value of dividends per share remaining to be paid out in the preceding quarter is reported. In the chart above, the projection for IndexArb's 2017-Q2 dividends per share was made on 8 March 2017.
  • Since the CME Group's dividend futures data continues all the way through the expiration of the quarter's options contracts, changes can continue to be observed for that stream of data, which is why we use it in our long-running S&P 500 forecasting project. We had previously used dividend futures data provided by the Chicago Board of Exchange in our project, but they opted to discontinue their reporting at the end of April 2017.

          A Cap from St. Nicholas   
I have to apologize for the winter storm that's predicted for this weekend. Little Lovely had been asking for snow all winter, and now it looks like she's finally going to get it (and then some, according to some forecasts!).

Of course, getting snowed in is always a fantastic opportunity to get some crocheting done, and I've got a project for you that takes only one skein of yarn to make, so you needn't brave the crowds at stores to get supplies, and it will keep your little one warm when they're ready to play in the winter wonderland!

A Cap from St Nicholas 1

Our Cap from St. Nicholas (so named because it reminds me of the poem "A Visit from St. Nicholas") uses one skein of Cascade Cherub Aran, a soft, washable acrylic that we carry at Crochet Kitten's Bazaar.

The hat is worked in slip stitch crochet, which results in a super soft and stretchy fabric reminiscent of knitting. You can find our free slip stitch tutorial here.

Special thanks to Amy Kittel for her help in the development of this pattern! See her tips for success here.

          JENSEN INDEX   

5 JENSEN INDEX

 

2.5.1 Definition


Jensen assumes that CAPM is empirically valid. He builds his theory mainly on this assumption and comes with the following formula in terms of realized rates of return.

Rjt= Rf  + βj ( Rm- Rf ) + ujt                                                                                     (17)

Subtracting Rf  from both side he obtains:

Rjt- Rf  = βj ( Rm- Rf ) + ujt                                                                                      (18)

Where
( Rm - Rf ) : market risk premium
ujt random error term

This formula indicates that risk premium earned on jth portfolio is equal to the market risk premium times  plus a random error term. In this form, one will not expect an intercept for the regression equation, if all securities are in equilibrium. But if certain superior portfolio managers can persistently earn positive risk premiums on their portfolios, the error term  will always have a positive value. This also proves the success of the portfolio manager. In such a case, an intercept value  must be included in the equations as follows.  measures positive differences from the model. Note that these positive differences are a result of the performance of the management.

                                                                          (19)

Jensen usesas his performance measure. A superior portfolio manager (successful) would have a significant positive  value because of the consistent positive residuals. Inferior managers (unsuccessful), on the other hand would have a significant negative . Average portfolio managers who have no forecasting ability-but still cannot be considered inferior- would earn as much as one can expect on the basis of CAPM. His profit accessing risk free investment will be only risk premium times beta value of the portfolio. The residual terms would randomly be positive and negative, and this would give an intercept value, which is insignificantly different from zero.

2.5.2 The Foundations of the Jensen Model

a)      As I mentioned above Jensen derives his measure and index from application of Capital Asset Pricing Model combined with the studies of Treynor and Shape and also Lintner. Lintner’s studies are out of the scope of this study so they are not covered. Jensen adopts the 7 assumptions that are used by the previous studies.
b)      All investors are risk avers.
c)      All investors are single period-expected utility of terminal wealth maximisers.
d)     All investors have identical decision horizons and homogeneous expectations regarding investment opportunities.
e)      All investors are able to choose among portfolios solely on the basis of expected returns and variance of returns.
f)       Transaction costs and taxes are ignored.
g)      All assets are infinitely divisible.

Jensen has an additional assumption
·         The capital market is in equilibrium.
All three models yield the following expression for the expected one period return, , on any security (or portfolio) j:
                                                                                (20)
where
*        the one-period risk free interest rate
the measure of risk (hereafter called systematic risk) which
                                the asset pricing model implies is crucial in determining the
                                prices of risky assets.
the expected one-period return on the “market portfolio” which consists
                of an investment in each asset in the market in proportion to its fraction
                of the total value of all assets in the market.

Thus equation (20) implies that the expected return on any asset is equal to the risk free rate plus a risk premium given by the product of the systematic risk of the asset and the risk premium on the market portfolio. Note that since  is a constant for all securities the risk of any security is just . But since , we can conclude the variance of the market portfolio is just , and thus we are really measuring the riskiness of any security relative to the market portfolio. Hence the systematic risk of the market portfolio, ,is unity, and thus the dimension of the measure of systematic risk has a convenient intuitive interpretation. The risk premium on the market portfolio is the difference between the expected returns on the market portfolio and the risk free rate.

“Equation (20) then simply tells us the amount that any security (or portfolio) can be expected to earn given its level of systematic risk, . If a portfolio manager or a security analyst is able to predict security prices he will be able to earn higher returns that those implied by equation (20) and the riskiness of his portfolio.” (Jensen, 1968: 391).

Later Jensen shows how (20) can be adapted and extended to provide an estimate of the forecasting ability of any portfolio manager. Equation (20) is stated in terms of the expected returns on any security or portfolio j and the expected returns on the market portfolio. However according to the theory and the assumptions these expectations are strictly unobservable. This rises as a serious doubt of the ability of equation (20) to measure realizations of any individual portfolio j and market portfolio M objectively.

“In equation (20) it was shown that the single period models of Sharpe, Lintner and Treynor can be extended to a multiperiod world in which investors are allowed to have heterogeneous horizon periods and in which the trading of securities takes place continuously through time. These results indicate that we can generalize equation (20) and rewrite it as
                                                                              (20a)
where the subscript t denotes an interval of time arbitrary with respect to length and beginning (and ending) dates.” (Jensen 1968: p392)

The market model is;
                                j = 1,2,…,N                                        (21)
where
is a parameter, which may vary from security to security
is an unobservable “market factor” which to some extent affects the returns on all securities
N is the total number of securities in the market.

The measure of risk in (20a), , is approximately equal to the coefficient  in the “market model” (It is also shown by equation (24) and (30)).

Jensen also displays the “diagonal model” (21a), which is identical to the “market model” (21) and descriptions of (22a)-(22d). The “diagonal model” is usually stated as
                                                                                                (21a)
where
*is some index of market returns,
 is a random variable uncorrelated with ,
and  are constants.

“The differences in specification between (21) and (21a) are necessary in order to avoid the over specification which arises if one chooses to interpret the market index I as an average of security returns on the market portfolio, M. That is, if  (equivalent to (22c)) cannot hold since  contains .” (Jensen 1968: 392)

The variables  and the  are assumed to be independent normally distributed random variables with
                                                                                                                 (22a)
                   j = 1,2,…,N                                                                          (22b)
           j = 1,2,…,N                                                                          (22c)
j = 1,2,…,N                                                   (22d)

Furthermore to a close approximation the return on the market portfolio can be expressed as
                                                                                                     (23)

Since evidence given in (20, 30) indicates that the market model, given by equation (21) and (22a) (22d), holds for portfolios as well as individual securities, we can use (21) to recast (20a) in terms of ex post returns. Substituting for  in (23) plugging it in equation (9a) and adding  to both sides of Jensen has
                                                (24)

As one will observe from (21) that the left hand side of (24) is just . So (24) reduces to:
                                                                                  (25)

Thus assuming that the asset-pricing model is empirically valid, (see equation 30) , equation (25) implies that the realized returns on any security or portfolio can be expressed as a linear function of four indicators. Its systematic risk, the realized returns on the market portfolio, the risk free rate and a random error, , which has an expected value of zero.

The term  can be subtracted from both sides of equation (25), and since its coefficient is unity the result is
                                                                                  (26)

The left hand side of (26) is the risk premium earned on the j’th portfolio. (Jensen, 1968: 393)

2.5.3 The Measurement of Fund Performance

Jensen index is basically based on the comparison of  values. The reason and the steps of derivation of  value is explained below.

Equation (26) may be used directly for empirical estimation. If we wish to estimate the systematic risk of any individual security or of an unmanaged portfolio the constrained regression estimate of  in equation (26) will be an efficient estimate (in the statistical sense of term) of this systematic risk. However, the situation is not exactly the same for managed portfolios. If the manager is a superior forecaster (perhaps because of special knowledge not available to others) he will tend to systematically select securities, which have residual value of > 0. Hence manager’s portfolio will earn more than the normal risk premium for its level of risk. We must allow for this possibility in estimating the systematic risk of a managed portfolio.

Allowance for such forecasting ability can be made by simply not constraining the estimating regression to pass through the origin. Then it will pass through the positive side of y-axis. That is, we allow for the possible existence of a non-zero constant. Plugging this constant in equation (26) by using the following equation (27) as the estimating equation.

NOW WATCH: We drove a brand-new Tesla Model X from San Francisco to New York — here's what happened


          Amazon's Echo intercom feature is part of a strategy to get you to buy more Echo devices (AMZN)   

Reasons to not use voice payments

This story was delivered to BI Intelligence IoT Briefing subscribers. To learn more and subscribe, please click here.

As Amazon starts to ship its new Echo Show smart speaker, the company is turning the devices and others in the Echo line into in-home intercoms, according to Business Insider.

It's part of the e-commerce leader's strategy to entice customers to buy and use multiple Echo devices.

Echo owners will now be able to use any Echo device to talk to another Echo that’s registered with the same Amazon account. Amazon already introduced voice calling between the devices and to the Alexa app, and will also support video calling with the Echo Show. It also released APIs to allow developers to display camera feeds from devices ranging from security systems to baby monitors on the Show’s screen. Now, a user with an Echo Show in the kitchen, for instance, will be able to talk to a spouse through an Echo Dot in the bedroom to tell them that dinner’s nearly ready.

These convenience features are part of Amazon’s play to get device owners to regularly use their devices — including, most importantly, for commerce. Among Echo owners, only 22% have used their voice-activated smart speaker to make a purchase, according to exclusive data from a BI Intelligence survey.

The top reason respondents hadn’t was a worry about security, cited by 42%. As consumers use their Echos for more mundane tasks like talking to family members in the next room or checking on security cameras, they will become more used to using voice as a control interface and be more likely to make purchases — provided they know about that capability, which 34% of respondents were not aware of — using their Echos, driving Amazon’s core business.

The US smart home market has still yet to meet the expectations many observers had in the early part of this decade.

The same issues BI Intelligence first identified back in 2015 still plague the space — persistently high prices, technological fragmentation, and consumers' lack of a perceived benefit from the devices.

But the newfound popularity of smart home voice control has revolutionized smart home ecosystems across the country, and convinces more consumers to equip their homes with smart devices on a daily basis. The Amazon Echo, released in 2014, has become immensely popular and capable, awakening users to the utility of both voice control and smart home devices. This has prompted companies to rush to release competing devices and integrate voice control into their smart home ecosystems.

Nicholas Shields, research analyst for BI Intelligence, Business Insider's premium research service, has compiled a detailed report on the US smart home market that:

  • Analyzes current consumer demand for smart home devices based off results from BI Intelligence's proprietary survey.
  • Forecasts future growth in the number of smart home devices installed in American homes.
  • Analyzes the factors influencing the proliferation of voice control devices in the homes.
  • Identifies and analyzes the market strategies of various companies that have integrated voice control into their smart home ecosystems.

          Big Travel Boom Expected This Fourth Of July Weekend   
Updated at 3:30 p.m. ET Americans may be celebrating 241 years of independence this Fourth of July, but they won't be liberated from their cars on what's forecast to be the "most traveled Independence Day holiday" ever. AAA says that 44.2 million Americans are expected to travel 50 miles or more from home, with the vast majority on the road. That's an increase of nearly 3 percent from the year before, or more than a million people. "It's going to be crowded and travelers should definitely make sure that they're planning ahead," AAA spokeswoman Tamra Johnson tells The Associated Press. That means leaving early, Johnson says. "And if your schedule allows, even try to travel on the actual holiday." Nearly 38 million Americans are expected to drive, according to AAA, which defines the Independence Day travel period as Friday, June 30, through Tuesday, July 4. Some 3.5 million people are forecast to fly. And 3.25 million others will take a different form of transportation, be it a bus,

現在、運転支援技術はアクセル+ブレーキ+ハンドルまで操作可能ですが、例えば「このまま進んだら目の前の園児10名を轢いてしまうが、ハンドルを急激に右に切れば運転手が死ぬだけで済む」という選択肢が出た場合、車両の制御システムはどう判断するのか。そしてその判断の責任は誰がとるのか。

— 『ベストカー』編集部 (@bestcarmagazine) 2017年6月25日 - 21:39

各メーカーの自動運転技術がしつこく「運転支援技術である」と言っているのは、つまり「現状はあくまで支援=責任は運転者にある」、ということです。
また、技術者達は前ツイートの「システムはどう判断するのか」という問いに、あくまで「そうしたシビアな判断になる前に対処する」と言います。

— 『ベストカー』編集部 (@bestcarmagazine) 2017年6月25日 - 21:42

これはもちろんその通りで、現在、すでに様々な運転支援技術が最新型車には搭載されていますが、そのおかげで事故件数は減っています。つまり「責任のあり方」も大事ですが、その前段階として「支援範囲が広くなればなるほど事故は減る」という非常に重要な事実がある。

— 『ベストカー』編集部 (@bestcarmagazine) 2017年6月25日 - 21:47

おわかりでしょうか。「事故が起こった時に誰が責任を取るのか」の議論が未成熟なまま、時代はすでに「(責任論をしてる間に)運転支援技術の支援範囲を広げないままでいることによって失われる命がある。その責任だって誰も取れないでしょ」という、議論が一段階上のレイヤーに移りつつあるのです。

いくら高学歴でも女性であるというだけで下に見るという、実にストレートな性差別。
公職の地位にある人間が口にしていい台詞じゃないし、自民党の掲げる「女性活躍の推進」とは一体何?

          Indian IT industry faces twin challenges of Trump, automation   
MUMBAI - Automation and the new U.S. administration were the big unknowns at the Indian tech sector's annual shindig this week, with machines threatening to take away thousands of jobs and concerns over possible visa rule changes in the key American market.

But senior executives from the $150 billion industry, which rose to prominence at the turn of the century by helping Western firms solve the "Y2K" bug, said companies with skilled English-speaking staff and low costs could not be written off yet.

The sector, led by Tata Consultancy Services, Infosys Ltd and Wipro Ltd, is lobbying hard as the new U.S. administration under President Donald Trump considers putting in place visa restrictions.

The administration may also raise salaries paid to H1-B visa holders, a move that could significantly increase costs for IT companies that are already facing pressure on margins.

The longer-term challenge and opportunity for the sector was automation, executives said, as global corporations from plane-makers to consumer firms bet on the use of machines to further cut costs and boost efficiency.

That threatens lower-end software services and outsourcing jobs in a sector which employs more than 3.5 million people.

Summing up the mood at the three-day NASSCOM leadership event in Mumbai ending on Friday, Malcolm Frank, Chief Strategy Officer at Cognizant which has most of its operations in India, spoke of "fear and optimism."

Even top IT executives were "fearing the machines", he said.

Some Indian executives, including Infosys' Chief Operating Officer Pravin Rao, said that greater automation was expected to help engineers and developers shed repetitive jobs for more creative roles.

"Some part of the work we'll be automating 100 percent, you don't require people to do that kind of work," Rao told Reuters. "But there are always newer things, where we will be able to re-purpose employees who are released from those areas."

MOVING UP FOOD CHAIN

With rapidly changing technology, Indian IT firms are emphasizing the need for retraining their workforce, in many cases setting up experience centers and learning zones on their sprawling campuses.

Some companies are partnering with universities to design and fund education programs, while staff members spoke of employers laying on training and webinars to help develop skills in automation and cloud computing.

"The threat from automation killing jobs is more than Trump's anticipated visa rule changes," a general manager-level employee at a top Indian IT firm said.

NASSCOM chairman and Tech Mahindra CEO C.P. Gurnani said technology would create new roles where "man will manage machines," even if a fourth of Indian IT jobs were to be replaced by machines over the next four years.

Hiring patterns may also change, with unconventional, high-value graduates likely to be more attractive, to the possible detriment of hiring from India's engineering colleges.

Infosys, which traditionally recruited only engineering graduates, is considering hiring people educated in liberal arts to add creative skills to its workforce, COO Rao said.

In a first, NASSCOM (National Association of Software and Services Companies), the leading Indian IT lobby group, delayed its initial growth forecast for fiscal 2017/18, citing market uncertainty.

NASSCOM officials said it had deferred its predictions by three months to give it time to gauge policy announcements in the United States which could make immigration rules tougher.

The industry body aims to announce a firmer growth forecast after the quarter to March when IT companies report annual earnings and give guidance for the next fiscal year.

"A certain level of ... uncertainty will continue over the medium-term," said NASSCOM President R. Chandrashekhar. "And businesses therefore have to take essential decisions on new technology in the face of a certain degree of uncertainty."

           Wisconsin Loses More Manufacturing Jobs as GOP tax giveaway hits $299 million a year   



MADISON – Late last Friday afternoon, Governor Walker’s Department of Workforce Development released new data showing that Wisconsin has once again lost thousands of manufacturing jobs.  According to the data, Wisconsin added just 11,590 private sector jobs in 2016 with a growth rate of 0.5%.

Those numbers mark the slowest job growth of any year since Governor Walker took office. The dramatic dip in manufacturing job creation comes at nearly the same time the so-called Manufacturing and Agriculture Tax Credit is now fully phased in, at a projected cost of almost $300 million this year. By the end of the next budget, the credit is projected to have cost the state a total of $1.4 billion over six years.  Despite its misleading name, the credit does not require that a single job be created.  Three out of four individuals who claim the giveaway as income tax are millionaires.

“These latest jobs numbers once again confirm that Governor Walker has been a miserable failure at fulfilling his promises to create jobs,” said Rep. Gordon Hintz (D-Oshkosh), a member of the budget-writing Joint Finance Committee. “The fact that the Governor waited until late afternoon before a holiday weekend to release the jobs numbers says it all.  Not only is the state growing jobs an anemic 0.5% rate, Wisconsin continues to place 50th among 50 states in startup activity, with the distance between Wisconsin and the next-lowest states widening even more from 2016 and 2015. Meanwhile, the Governor continues to give away hundreds of millions of dollars in a no-strings-attached tax credit to the wealthiest in our state, at the expense of public schools, tech schools, and the UW System.”

Since the credit has been fully phased in, Wisconsin has lost manufacturing jobs over 12 months in every quarter the Bureau of Labor Statistics has released jobs data. Recent data from the state’s non-partisan Legislative Fiscal Bureau revealed the top 11 claimants of the credit all make $30 million or more per year, and as a group are projected to receive a whopping $22 million in 2017 alone.  Because there is no job creation requirement, claimants can actually take money from the credit and outsource jobs, or even invest in automation to replace actual jobs.

The tax measure was included in the 2011 budget during a last-minute motion on the last day before the Joint Finance Committee passed the budget.  As a result, there was no public hearing, input, testimony, or consideration of the impact of the decision when it was passed.


At the time of passage, the credit was estimated to cost $128 million annually when fully phased in by 2016-17.  However, the credit is projected to actually end up costing $299 million in 2016-17, and is expected to balloon in cost to $334 million by 2018-19.  By the end of the 2017-19 budget, the credit will have cost $800 million more than was originally forecasted when it was passed in 2011.

          Africa’s hospitality sector withstands economic headwinds   
South Africa's hospitality sector is poised for further growth in the next five years bolstered by inbound travelers amid a difficult and volatile economic climate.Pietro Calicchio, Hospitality & Gaming Industry Leader for PwC Southern Africa (www.PwC.co.za), says: "Africa's hotel sector has remained resilient in the face of strong economic headwinds."PwC's 7th edition of the 'Hotels Outlook: 2017-2021' projects that South African hotel room revenue will grow by 10.1% in 2017 to R17.5 billion. Overall hotel room revenue for South Africa is expected to expand at a 9.3% compound annual rate to R24.8 billion in 2021 from R15.9 billion in 2016.PwC's report features information about hotel accommodation in South Africa, Nigeria, Mauritius, Kenya and Tanzania. This year we take our African view a step further, with looking into Ghana and Ethiopia as emerging hotel markets.The outlook for 2017 is positive with an increase in the number of international visitors to South Africa expected. Domestic tourism is also anticipated to increase by 2.2% in 2017."One of the positive outcomes for the hotel market in South Africa was the amendment of visa requirements that required foreign visitors from certain countries to provide biometric data in person. International visitor numbers to South Africa rebounded significantly in 2016 with a 12.8% increase as compared to the 6.8% decrease in 2015," Calicchio comments.Visits from China and India increased in 2016 as a result of the relaxation in the visa requirements; travellers from China to South Africa increased by 38% and India recorded a 21.7% increase. Of non-African countries, the UK is still the largest source of visitors to South Africa at 447 840 in 2016. Of the African countries, the largest number of foreign visitors to South Africa in 2016 came from Zimbabwe at two million, followed by Lesotho at 1.8 million and Mozambique at 1.3 million. In addition, visits from East and Central Africa also rose by 11.2% in 2016.It is promising to note a growing number of new hotels planned for the South African market over the next five years. The overall number of available rooms is expected to increase at a 0.9% compound annual rate, thereby adding 2700 rooms over this period.Nigeria is expected to be the fastest-growing market from a revenue perspective over the next five years with a projected 14.7% compound annual increase in revenue, benefitting from an improving economy, continued growth in domestic tourism, and expansion in the number of available rooms. South Africa is projected to be the next-fastest growing market with a 9.3% compound annual increase in room revenue, most of which will be generated by rising average room rates and continued but moderating growth in tourism.The emergence of peer-to-peer inventory from entities such as Airbnb, has bolstered growth in non-hotel accommodation. Ongoing growth in the peer-to-peer sector over the next few years will make the market more competitive, which may limit room-rate growth for hotels.The revenue for the five markets as a group is forecast to rise at an 8.7% compound annual rate to R59.2 billion in 2021 from R39 billion in 2016.Hotel accommodation: South Africa – Nigeria – Mauritius – Kenya – TanzaniaOverall, room revenue in South Africa rose 12.2% to R15.8 billion in 2016, the biggest increase since 2013. Over the past five years, the occupancy rate has risen, surpassing the 60% level and reaching 61.2% in 2016. This gain has stimulated interest and a number of new hotels are expected to open in the next five years.Five-star hotels have had the highest occupancy rates in the market at 79.3% in 2016. Room revenue for five-star hotels is expected to expand at an 11.4% compound annual rate to R4.2 billion in 2021 from R2.4 billion in 2016.The hotel sector in Cape Town flourished in 2016 as it is the dominant tourist destination in the country. Over the next five years, 55% of all the rooms expected to be added in South Africa will be in Cape Town. Durban's hotel market attracts more tourists than Johannesburg, but fewer than Cape Town. Although Durban benefitted from the pick-up in tourism in 2016 a weak business market held back overall growth.Elsewhere on the African continent, a number of initiatives have taken place to promote tourism and positively impact the hotel market. The hotel market in Nigeria rebounded in 2016 with a 5.2% increase in total revenue.In 2016 the number of tourists to Mauritius increased by 10.8%. The hotel market has benefitted from an increase in direct flights and government investments in tourism. Room revenue increased by 15.3% in 2016 due to the 9% increase in guest nights together with an increase in average room rates.The tourist market in Kenya rebounded in 2016 following four years after decline. The Government has introduced a number of initiatives to boost tourism. Hotel room revenue is projected to grow at 6.2% compounded annually to 2021. Over the last year, tourism increased in Tanzania despite the imposition of an 18% VAT on tourism services. Calicchio adds: "Many destinations have invested in improving and promoting the quality of their tourism offering and are reaping the benefits. In addition, we are seeing the impact of technological disruption play a part over the past year in certain countries."Outlook: South Africa 2017-2021The number of available rooms is projected to rise at a 0.9% compound annual rate to 63 900 in 2021 from 61 200 in 2016. Guest nights are forecast to increase at a 1.8% compound annual rate to 15 million in 2021 from 13.7 million in 2016, with occupancy increasing to 64.3% in 2021 from 61.2% in 2016.Outlook: Nigeria – Mauritius - Kenya - TanzaniaA number of projects in Nigeria have been delayed or postponed in the wake of the recent economic uncertainty. An 18 month moratorium was placed on hotel construction in Mauritius in November 2015. "Consequently we now expect a smaller expansion in the number of available rooms that we predicted in last year's Outlook report," Calicchio adds. Nevertheless, there is still a lot of activity in the market for new hotels which will continue to expand overall hotel capacity.Nigeria is projected to be the fastest-growing market from a revenue perspective over the next five years. This is mainly due to an improved economy, continued growth in domestic tourism, and expansion in the number of available rooms. Overall hotel room revenue is expected to expand at a 14.6% compound annual rate to US$517 million (R7.6 billion) in 2021 from US$261 million (R3.8 billion) in 2016.Mauritius is projected to be the slowest-growing of the five countries, with a 6.2% compound annual increase in room revenue. While there is a moratorium on new projects in place in the near term and relatively few rooms expected to be added through 2021, growth in the non-hotel inventory will ease pressure on average room rates.In Kenya the number of available rooms is projected to increase from 18 600 in 2016 to 21 000 in 2021. Total room revenue is forecast to rise by 7.5% compounded annually. Tourism is the largest industry in Tanzania, accounting for more than 17% of GDP. Total room revenue is expected to rise to $371 million (R4.6 billion) in 2021 from $224 million (R3.3 billion) in 2016.Calicchio adds: "The hotel market in each country is affected by both the local and global economy, with some countries being more dependent on foreign visitors than others. We are also seeing certain local governments continuing to invest in infrastructure and implementing other plans to unlock the substantial potential that this industry has to bring."

          Geomagnetic warning (26-27 May)    
The SWS has issued a geomagnetic warning  for 26-27 May (UT) due to glancing blow from a coronal mass ejection. This is expected to arrive late in the UT day on the 26th (which is the morning of the 27th Australian time). However, the Space Weather Prediction Service has no prediction of storms at this time, so a wait and see approach may be needed (see also here).

If these geomagnetic events occur and result in aurora they could be seen from Tasmania and Southern Victoria, weather permitting. The Moon is just off new, so will not interfere. Be patient, as the activity may rise and fall of the magnetic polarity of the wind may fluctuate significantly.

Dark sky sites have the best chance of seeing anything, and always allow around 5 minutes for your eyes to become dark adapted.

As always look to the south for shifting red/green glows, beams have been reported consistently over the last few aurora, as well as bright proton arcs and "picket fences".

Here is the near-real time satellite view of the clouds http://satview.bom.gov.au/
Cloud cover predictions can be found at SkippySky.  

The all sky aurora camera in Northern Tasmania at Cressy is being upgraded and is not yet online.

          Acuitus Auctions on Transitioning from Residential to Commercial Property (Part 1)   
In a “post-Section 24” operational environment, the changing face of residential buy-to-let has spurred investors to explore alternative strategies as means of not only overcoming the impending punitive tax burden but also diversify into other asset classes. For capitalised buyers, the case for commercial property as a potential direction of travel is a compelling one: finance costs that are fully tax-deductible, lower stamp duty at purchase, Full Repairing and Insuring (FRI) leases and simplified enforcement of contractual breaches are just some of the commonly-cited advantages. However, evidence does suggest that the risks may be greater as investors can end up more susceptible to market swings, legislation and sector-specific behavioural shifts.  From the outset therefore, successfully investing in commercial property ultimately requires meticulous due diligence alongside an inherent ability to forecast changing trends well into the future. We were very grateful to have a conversation on this subject with Richard … [Read More]

          Kayak Bass Fishing Lake Hogan By Team Member James Snyder   
Hey guys, today I (James Snyder) had the privilege of fishing with some shop friends this afternoon Andy Rau And Ken Shields at New Hogan Reservoir here in beautiful California. We left Lodi around 6 am to arrive to the lake around 6:45 to some amazing air temps of 67 degrees. Forecast said it would be in the high 70's with winds from 0-12 mph gusts. For once the weatherman was correct!!! We made it on the water around 7:15 with light to no winds for the first 3-4 hours and the water was glass. Water temps started at 58 degrees and steadily climbed to over 63 degrees in some of the sun exposed and wind protected coves. Water was very dirty with only a few inches of visibility.

We started out with bass, striper and carp slashing all around us this morning. our fish finders were lit up with marks all over our selected area to fish this morning, its been a long time since I've personally had that many marks on my graph it was a nice change of pace. we started out hoping for a Topwater bite, WRONG! no luck there but we slowed down and started chucking A-rigs. no takers for me but Andy got a nice little 10in Striper early in the morning. We then slowed way down and broke out the fairy wands. our baits of choice today was the Ned Rig and drop shot. My colors of choice were green pumpkin red flake and green pumpkin purple flake for Ned rig and mm3 and Arron's morning dawn for my Roboworms. Instead of your traditional drop shot with the hook 8-12 inches from the weight we instead tied the hook then instead of a weight we tied on the Ned rig. This allowed us to cover more of the water column and produced more fish! Luckily we figured this out early on and was able to put a pretty solid pattern together in a short time, I found that the green pumpkin purple flake Ned with a MM3 Roboworm was my ticket today.

Most fish were caught in 8-18 feet of water off bank points where rock and brush met the water line. between the 3 of us we had 30-40 fish caught. Andy pours all of my Neds and Drop shot weights and if your interested at saving a little money for a amazing product hit him up on his Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/a.rau1993 his prices are far lower then any big named product and has fast shipping. now for the fun part pictures! -

Thanks for taking the time to read about my day- feel free to reach out to me on Facebook @ https://www.facebook.com/james.snyder.739 or on Instagram @ Yakin_James always willing to help and answer any questions you might have about kayaks, fishing, or our northern California waterways. Tight lines and look for more reports in the future!

          When will the Feelfree Overdrive Pedal Drive Be Out?    



When Will the Feelfree Overdrive Pedal System Be Out?

So the questions keeps getting asked all over the internet, and I get at least 2-3 phone calls or emails a day on the subject, so I decided to do some investigative work for you guys.

I had a long talk with Jim Hager (President of Feelfree US) and he filled me in on whats been going on behind the scenes.

At this time it's a bit of a good news bad news situation. Feelfree has been working incredibly hard to source the best quality parts for the drive. They are working with folks in the marine outboard industry and have found a couple vendors who are the best in the field. The main concern for Feelfree right now, is making sure the drive that hits the market is dialed in, and is the best quality they can possibly get. The last thing any of us want is have them rush to market with a drive only to be met with failures and warranties.

So the most accurate lead time I was able to pull out of Jim was early Summer 2017. I know I know, don't kill the messenger! At I cast they were forecasting a spring delivery, but as with many new products, those time frames get pushed back as the product gets closer to launch. He did say that all the tooling was done, and production parts for the drives are rolling in daily. He also said that he was able to test the production drive and was blown away by the leaps and bounds that have been made since the prototype was tested in July. See that video here.


In my talk with Jim he seemed to have way more up his sleeve than he was leading on. Although he's disappointed in the delay, he's also very excited about the future. I get the feeling the Overdrive system is just the tip of the Ice Burg of what may be coming down the pipe for Feelfree, but only time will tell.

For now I will leave you with my interview with Feelfree's head designer and mastermind behind the Overdrive Peter Murphy.

Not only does the forecast call for 94 degree temperatures in the NYC metro area today (Tuesday), the New York State Department of Environmental Conservation has issued an Air Quality Health Advisory from 10:00AM until 10:00PM.

Active children and adults, and people with respiratory problems, such as asthma, should reduce prolonged or heavy exertion outdoors, according to DEC.

The humidity will make temperatures feel hotter as well.

An approaching cold front will give the area a chance for showers and thunderstorms, mainly from the afternoon into Tuesday night.
