          Nuevos dueños de la energía: cuáles son los nombres que se reparten el negocio estrella del modelo macrista (iProfesional)   


Las inversiones en producción y transporte de gas y electricidad se suceden mientras crece la lista de empresarios que apuestan por un segmento antes alicaído. La decisión oficial de avanzar con las centrales nucleares eleva las expectativas. Los protagonistas que picaron en punta en un nicho clave


El atractivo volvió con el cambio de Gobierno, casi de forma automática. En medio de promesas de políticas orientadas a sumarle valor a la producción y transporte de los insumos, y una modificación en el esquema de tarifas, el segmento energético rápidamente derivó en un magma de inversiones, compras y ventas.

Y comenzaron a aparecer nombres de empresarios y compañías que entendieron al nuevo clima político como un escenario de oportunidades.

De Marcelo Mindlin a Eduardo Eurnekian, pasando por la familia Werthein y más de un "tapado", un estamento de inversores nacionales movió rápido sus fichas para hacer de la energía una opción de rédito en alza. Para el Gobierno, cada uno de las apuestas que llevan adelante hombres y compañías locales representa otra forma de atraer el interés internacional.


"Que empresarios como Mindlin lleven a cabo compras de envergadura, o que se conozcan inversiones de relevancia en el sector, es una manera de reposicionar a la Argentina en el mapa de los mercados atractivos. Son acciones que nos vuelven competitivos", sostuvo ante iProfesional una fuente cercana al ministro Juan José Aranguren.

En torno a los equipos oficiales predomina el optimismo ante una perspectiva positiva dada la riqueza que posee la Argentina en combustibles como el gas o el aprovechamiento que todavía queda por realizar en lo que hace a la generación hidroeléctrica.

"Tenemos una situación auspiciosa en energía. Tras algo más de 15 años de malas decisiones, hay un interés creciente de los privados, sobre todo en la producción y el transporte del gas. También interesa la distribución de la electricidad. En ese sentido, Mindlin está marcando el ritmo por ser unos de los primeros que entendió que hay que apostar por el sector energético", comentó a iProfesional Emilio Apud, asesor de Cambiemos y actual director en YPF.

Para el experto, las compras y ventas de los últimos meses muestran que el empresariado ha dejado de "sufrir las inseguridades que generó el kirchnerismo". Al respecto, destacó al gas como el activo que marcará los tiempos de la inversión en el mediano plazo.

"La electricidad es importante y un negocio de relevancia, pero el gas es el futuro energético de la Argentina y el mundo. Esto lo están entendiendo empresarios como Eurnekian, que prefieren resignar posiciones en la distribución para direccionar los esfuerzos a la extracción del combustible", ejemplificó.

Justamente la expectativa que genera el futuro mayor consumo de gas es la variable que mejor explica el permanente interés por invertir en Vaca Muerta, en la provincia de Neuquén, que vienen sosteniendo compañías internaciones como Chevron, Shell, Petronas o Dow, además de la estatal YPF.

Mindlin, en punta
Si hay un auténtico protagonista del segmento tras la irrupción de Cambiemos, ese es Marcelo Mindlin. El mercado energético, ahí donde supo hacerse fuerte en tiempos de otro viento político, sigue siendo su principal ámbito de apuestas.

De ahí que, en mayo del año pasado, la compra de los activos de la brasileña Petrobras en la Argentina a través de Pampa Energía lo colocó en el pelotón de los que deciden el escenario de las naftas a nivel nacional.

Y algo más: la operación también le aseguró el control de más de 30 reservas hidrocarburíferas, una red de estaciones de servicio, dos instalaciones petroquímicas y hasta una refinería ubicada en la ciudad bonaerense de Bahía Blanca.

Hoy por hoy, Mindlin genera casi el 10% del gas que se produce en la Argentina.

Al mismo tiempo, mantuvo su participación en CIESA, la compañía que controla los destinos de TGS, considerada la mayor transportadora de gas doméstica. En tanto, septiembre del año pasado fue el mes elegido para la compra, previo desembolso de u$s100 millones, del 100% de Albares Renovables Argentina, adjudicataria de licitaciones gubernamentales en materia de energía térmica.

Dueño de Edenor, Mindlin posee más de 20.000 kilómetros de líneas de provisión de energía al controlar las firmas Transener y Transba. En paralelo, el titular de Pampa es un "peso pesado" de la generación dado que posee las hidroeléctricas Los Nihuiles y Diamante, y las centrales térmicas Loma de la Lata, Piedrabuena y Güemes.

A través de la compra de la ex IECSA -rebautizada Sociedad Argentina de Construcción y Desarrollo Estratégico (SACDE)- a Ángelo Calcaterra, primo de Mauricio Macri, Mindlin también se hizo con un activo que le abre las puertas del renovado negocio de la energía nuclear. SACDE ya participa de la licitación para la construcción del edificio donde se desarrollarán los reactores CAREM en Lima, provincia de Buenos Aires, y también podría salir a pelear contratos para lo que será el diseño de Atucha III.

"Tiene un auténtico ejército de ingenieros con todas las especialidades posibles. Es una empresa en permanente expansión, por lo que de seguro también estará entre las candidatas a las principales obras", comentó una fuente vinculada al Ministerio de Energía.

Siempre Caputo
Otro de los nombres que pisa fuerte en el ámbito energético es el de Nicolás Caputo. De la mano de SADESA, participa en la generación de electricidad a través de Central Puerto y Central Mendoza. También posee participación en distribuidoras de gas en el centro del país y la región de Cuyo.

Al mismo tiempo, Caputo cuenta con una porción muy amplia en Edesur adquirida a la brasileña Petrobras en enero de 2013. En ese momento, la petrolera vendió su participación del 48,5% en u$s35 millones. Dichas acciones las adquirieron Hidroeléctrica Piedra del Águila (HPDA) y La Plata Cogeneración, ambas bajo control de SADESA.

En enero de 2017, la firma presentó proyectos para levantar una planta de ciclo combinado de 1.600 megavatios en el complejo industrial de Zárate y Campana. En simultáneo, el empresario ha triunfado en algunas de las principales licitaciones que el Gobierno llevó a cabo en materia nuclear.

Por poner un caso, a principios de este año se quedó con la construcción de un sistema de almacenamiento en seco de combustibles atómicos para la central de Atucha I. La obra está valuada en algo más de $500 millones.

Ya en enero de 2016, Caputo se alzó con la construcción de la obra civil de los edificios del reactor RA-10, en un contrato valuado en casi $800 millones. Al momento de informar los resultados de la compulsa, la CNEA argumentó en un comunicado que el empresario obtuvo "la ejecución del proyecto de diseño, construcción y puesta en marcha del reactor de investigación multipropósito RA-10, fundamentalmente, para aumentar la producción de radioisótopos destinados al diagnóstico de enfermedades".

Por estos días, Caputo está entre los finalistas de la competencia por la obra civil del edificio que albergará a toda la producción de CAREM. El presupuesto para dicho emprendimiento alcanza los $1.300 millones.

Pagano: el tapado
Más allá del despliegue de Mindlin y el movimiento creciente de Caputo, una de las movidas más significativas en tiempos de macrismo corrió por cuenta de un "tapado": Rogelio Pagano, un empresario del "riñón" del titular de Pampa Energía y que a fines de mayo de 2016 compró una serie de compañías que lo transformaron en una suerte de "zar" de la electricidad bonaerense.

En ese momento, el empresario pagó u$s250 millones para quedarse con Edelap, la firma que brinda electricidad a más de 400.000 usuarios en La Plata y su área de influencia, además de garantizarse también el dominio de EDEA, la empresa que provee de suministro a casi 530.000 clientes en Mar del Plata.

Al frente de Desarrolladora Energética (DESA), Pagano también opera EDESA, clave en la provisión de electricidad en la provincia de Salta, y las distribuidoras EDEN y EDES, con operaciones en el centro y sur de la provincia de Buenos Aires.

Pagano no es ningún improvisado en el negocio energético: integró el directorio de Edenor entre 2005 y 2012 y acompañó a Mindlin en Pampa Energía durante varios años. También ocupó diferentes cargos en Citibank y Bank Of America. Producto de sus últimas maniobras, Pagano pasó a disponer de una cartera de usuarios que supera con comodidad los 1,5 millones de clientes.

Macfarlane y Werthein
La venta de Edelap a Pagano corrió por cuenta de otro "viejo" conocido de Mindlin: Alejandro Macfarlane, titular del grupo Disvol y también con pasado en Pampa Energía.

A principios de mayo de este año, Macfarlane hizo un uso concreto de los fondos que recibió del actual dueño de Edelap al cerrar la compra del 31,5% del capital social y los votos de Camuzzi Gas Inversora, controlante de Camuzzi Gas Pampeana y su homónima Gas del Sur CGP.

Camuzzi Gas Pampeana distribuye gas natural a 1,3 millones de clientes residenciales e industriales en las provincias de Buenos Aires y La Pampa. En tanto, Camuzzi Gas del Sur asegura el suministro a 650.000 usuarios en toda la Patagonia.

Otro actor que se sumó en el último tiempo corresponde a la familia Werthein, que a mediados del año pasado generó una de las mayores sorpresas del segmento tras desembolsar unos u$s240 millones por la mitad de CIESA, la compañía que controla TGS y aún cuenta con participación de Mindlin.

"Se trata de una empresa que, sin problemas, debería facturar por los menos unos $3.500 millones anuales. Capacidad industrial no le falta", comentó a este medio una fuente cercana al ministro Aranguren.

La compra de TGS les aseguró el control del principal distribuidor de gas domiciliario y para complejos industriales, con monopolio del fluido que proviene principalmente de la cuenca Austral.

Asimismo, la firma es la mayor procesadora de líquidos derivados del gas, actividad que la compañía desempeña en la planta que posee muy cerca de Bahía Blanca, en la localidad de General Daniel Cerri.

En concreto, TGS produce a razón de 300.000 toneladas de etanol, 550.000 de propano y butano, además de 150.000 de naftas. Las principales productoras químicas de la Argentina operan en vínculo con la transportadora, que además cuenta con una potente instalación de poliductos en Puerto Galván, siempre en el sur de la provincia de Buenos Aires.

Eurnekian, en retirada
La contracara de estas expansiones corresponde a Eduardo Eurnekian, que en los últimos meses hizo evidentes sus movimientos para salir de Transportadora Gas del Norte (TGN).

A través de Compañía General de Combustibles (CGC), el empresario posee la mayoría accionaria de Gasinvest, controlante de la transportadora.

TGN cuenta con una de las mayores redes de gasoductos de la región, con una extensión que alcanza los 6.000 kilómetros distribuidos mayormente en el centro y norte de la Argentina. Ocho distribuidoras, diversas generadoras y múltiples industrias dependen del fluido que acerca este entramado de alcance nacional. El negocio de la firma está valuado en algo más de u$s750 millones.

La retirada de Eurnekian no concluye ahí: a mediados de mayo intensificó las conversaciones con Gas Natural Fenosa, controlante de Gas Natural BAN, para transferirle su participación en el gasoducto GasAndes, un tendido que hace dos décadas permitió la exportación del combustible a Chile. Este proceso se realiza en coordinación con el Banco Itaú.

Fenosa cuenta con más de 1,6 millones de clientes en el Norte y también provee de luz a miles de hogares en San Juan, Jujuy y Tucumán. En el ámbito energético aseguran que Eurnekian impulsa la venta de estos activos para, fondos frescos mediante, intensificar su apuesta por la producción de gas, sobre todo en la cuenca Austral.

En definitiva, el ámbito energético aparece como uno de los segmentos que mayor expansión viene exhibiendo desde que Cambiemos define el rumbo económico del país. La decisión del macrismo de profundizar la generación nuclear deja en claro que la política dista de ser momentánea.


Y para el empresariado nacional semejante apuesta representa la certeza de que es un buen momento para volver a hacer negocios de envergadura en la Argentina.

          Lykins Helps Build Fairgrounds Pavilion   

MILFORD, Ohio -- Lykins Energy Solutions has donated most of the funds to build a new Clermont County Fairgrounds building. The Lykins Family Pavilion is a new entertainment pavilion at the fairgrounds.

The company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new building on July 30.

The previous entertainment pavilion was in the middle of the midway and required using a tent that was expensive and made the area very hot due to a lack of circulation. The original pavilion, due to its popularity and location, also made the midway congested and hard to move in, according to fair board member Jerry Bridges.

The new Lykins Family Pavilion is located on the far end of the State Route 132 side of the fairgrounds.

“Going to the county fair with our parents is one of my earliest childhood memories,” said Jeff Lykins, president and CEO of Lykins Energy Solutions. “We’ve always felt we should give back to the community that supports our business by buying our products and services. This is a great way for our family and our company to give back to our community and its residents.”

Bridges said the new pavilion will bring additional, much needed revenue to the fairgrounds. With the new facility, the fairgrounds will be able to host weekly concerts.

Lykins Energy Solutions (formerly Lykins Oil) is a family-owned and -operated business based in Milford, Ohio. The company was founded in 1948 by Guy Lykins Sr., and is now in the third generation of management. The company serves customers in Ohio, Kentucky and Indiana, as well as throughout the Midwest and the Southeast and provides products and services including branded fuels, wholesale fuels, commercial, transportation and home heating oil, propane, lubricants, fleet fueling, electricity and natural gas for Ohio. The company represents four major brands of fuel that it sells to independent gasoline dealers: BP, Marathon, Shell and Gulf.

          Ciena teams with University of Waterloo   
Ciena announced that it is working with engineering researchers at the University of Waterloo to develop solutions to help network operators and Internet providers address to the ever increasing demand for faster data transmission over the Internet.

The partners stated that the research relationship has received funding support from the Natural Sciences and Engineering Research Council of Canada (NSERC).

A key area of the University of Waterloo's partnership with Ciena focuses on realising the maximum possible capacity from the optical cables that run under the oceans and which handle around 95% of intercontinental communications, including an estimated $10 trillion per day in financial transactions. Ciena noted that the reliable, high-speed transmission of huge amounts of data over undersea cables is increasingly important in fields including healthcare and academic research.

For the research program, Amir Khandani, a professor of electrical and computer engineering at Waterloo, is leading a team of post-doctoral fellows and graduate students that are developing algorithms designed to efficiently and rapidly correct errors, including lost or dropped bits of data, that occur during extremely high-speed, long-distance optical transmission.

When incorporated on the electronic chips that are built into equipment for receiving and transmitting data, the algorithms developed by the Waterloo team can free up cable capacity, while also enabling the faster correction of errors in line with other technological advances in optical communications.


Under the three-year partnership, announced at an event at the University of Waterloo, Mr. Khandani holds the position of Ciena/NSERC Industrial Research Chair on Network Information Theory of Optical Channels. Ciena noted that the relationship between Waterloo Engineering and Ciena has already produced seven U.S. patents, with additional patents pending.



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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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


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


          IoT forecasts come into focus   
For years now there has been forecast after forecast predicting the size of the IoT market by the end of the decade or ten years hence. There is always a big number of connected things and impressive valuation for the sum of the whole market, and with the large mobile operators such as AT&T and Verizon now including connected things in their quarterly reports there is hard data to back up the rosy forecasts. At an editorial briefing in San Jose last month, Qualcomm executives said it is now shipping one million wireless connections per day - this certainly gives a perspective on how fast IoT can grow. The company has hundreds of OEM design wins for its MDM9206 LTE modem for IoT.

As of June 15th, the GSMA Intelligence services says there are 8,132,111,132 mobile connections, including M2M. The GSMA's online tracker further reports 5,016,263,289 unique mobile subscribers, which are assumed to mean people with at least one mobile phone and SIM card. By subtraction, this means 3.1 billion M2M connections tracked by the GSMA via their mobile operator members.

This piece collects newly published data from several sources. First, IDC recently reported that worldwide spending on the IoT will reach nearly $1.4 trillion in 2021. Second, the Cisco Visual Network Index (VNI) found that M2M connections globally will grow from 780 million in 2016 to 3.3 billion by 2021, a 34% CAGR or fourfold growth. Third, the newly published Ericsson Mobility Study finds that 70% of wide-areas IoT devices will use cellular technology in 2022. While studies from different authors will never precisely line up, this collection of data agrees that real and significant revenue from IoT for carriers has started to materialize and will grow quickly in the near term.

Highlights from IDC’s Worldwide Semi-annual IoT spending guide

The first big finding to notice in IDC's report is that worldwide spending on IoT will reach $800 billion this year, up 16.7% year over year, which means that the market this month must be worth tens of millions of dollars. These numbers are spread out amongst the hardware, software, services and connectivity that enable the IoT. This means splitting the pot between vendors such as Qualcomm, Sierra Wireless, Cisco Jasper, integration specialists, and of course carriers such as AT&T, Orange and Vodafone. There are many others that could be included on this list, especially when considering the global market.  In that sense, the $800 billion is just a starting point. IDC's forecast says that by 2021, global IoT spending will total nearly $1.4 trillion. In a press release announcing the study, IDC's Carrie MacGillivray, vice president, Internet of Things and Mobility, stated that the true value of IoT is realised when the software and services come together to enable the capture, interpretation, and action on data produced by IoT endpoints.

IDC breaks down 2017 investments in IoT as follows: manufacturing operations ($105 billion), freight monitoring ($50 billion), and production asset management ($45 billion), smart grid technologies for electricity, gas and water and smart building technologies ($56 billion and $40 billion, respectively). Looking to 2021, IDC expects these use cases will remain the largest areas of IoT spending. Smart home technologies are forecast to experience strong growth (19.8% CAGR) over the five-year forecast. The use cases that will see the fastest spending growth are airport facilities automation (33.4% CAGR), electric vehicle charging (21.1% CAGR), and in-store contextual marketing (20.2% CAGR).

IDC sees hardware as the largest IoT spending category to 2021, the last year of the forecast, when it is overtaken by the services category. This is to be expected as the various physical sensors and connectivity units must be deployed first before a service can be offered. IDC says hardware spending will be dominated by modules and sensors that connect end points to networks, while software spending will be similarly dominated by applications software. In addition, IDC says services spending will be about evenly split between ongoing and content services and IT and installation services. The fastest growing areas of technology spending are in the software category, where horizontal software and analytics software will have five-year CAGRs of 29.0% and 20.5%, respectively. Security hardware and software will also see increased investment, growing at 15.1% and 16.6% CAGRs, respectively.

Regional highlights:

•   Asia Pacific (excluding Japan, APeJ) will be the IoT investment leader throughout the forecast with spending expected to reach $455 billion in 2021.

•   The U.S. will be the second largest region with IoT spending reaching $421 billion in 2021.

•   Western Europe will reach $274 billion in 2021.

The IDC Worldwide Semiannual Internet of Things Spending Guide is quite comprehensive, covering IoT spending for 12 technologies and 54 use cases across 20 vertical industries in eight regions and 52 countries (for more details see here: http://www.idc.com/getdoc.jsp?containerId=prUS42799917).

Cisco looks wide with its VNI forecast

Generally speaking, Cisco's forecasts have tended to be the most optimistic. This year’s Cisco VNI indicates that its IoT coverage includes both M2M and emerging category of wearable IoT devices. M2M connections, which Cisco defines as home and office security and automation, smart metering and utilities, maintenance, building automation, automotive, healthcare and consumer electronics, are predicted to grow from 780 million in 2016 to 3.3 billion by 2021, a 34% CAGR or fourfold growth.

Wearable devices, which Cisco notes could connect and communicate to the network either directly through embedded cellular connectivity or through another device (primarily a smartphone) using WiFi, Bluetooth, or another technology, include such things as smart watches, smart glasses, heads-up displays (HUDs), health and fitness trackers, health monitors, wearable scanners and navigation devices and smart clothing. The Cisco VNI predicts that by 2021 there will be 929 million wearable devices globally, growing nearly threefold from 325 million in 2016 at a CAGR of 23%. By 2021, Cisco expects that 7% will have embedded cellular connectivity, up from 3% in 2016. As AR/VR headsets enter the market, they could start to have a tangible impact on mobile traffic.

Ericsson looks to short-range and wide-range IoT connectivity

The newly published Ericsson Mobility Report finds that at the end of 2016 there were around 0.4 billion IoT devices with cellular connections. Ericsson's study divides IoT into short-range and wide-area segments, and it provides some guidance as to how IoT is impacting the network. For instance, the report says use cases with VoLTE calls for IoT (Cat-M1) are starting to emerge. This could extend mobile voice service to IoT devices, an interesting possibility.

By 2021, Ericsson expects there will be 2.1 billion devices connected via LTE-M and NB-IoT networks, roughly a 30% CAGR from today. This trend has already started. This year, several prominent mobile operators have rolled out commercial LTE-M networks. For instance, in March, Verizon announced the commercial launch of its nationwide 4G LTE Category M1 (or Cat M1) network. The coverage spans 2.4 million square miles. Verizon will introduce low rate, multi-year plans to match the longer useful life of Cat M1 devices, including data plans that start at $2 per month per device, with customised options available for bulk activations and volume purchases. In May, AT&T followed suit by announcing the deployment of its nationwide LTE-M network ahead of schedule.

          Antu Barva by P. L. "PuLa" Deshpande   
Fourteen years ago today, Purushottam Laxman Deshpande, arguably the most influential and beloved person from Maharashtra, died at the age of 81. He left behind a gargantuan legacy in the form of his books, plays, songs, movies, essays, social work, but more than that, the lasting impact he has had on Maharashtra. Every couple of years, I translate one of his essays or short stories on this blog. This time, I have chosen Antu Barva, a fictionalized life sketch that he created as an amalgam of several people he knew in Konkan. It is not exactly LOL funny, but is light-hearted while still tugging at your heart-strings. It is meant as a depiction of the tough life in Konkan in the middle of the 20th century, and the sort of complex and poignant characters such a life spawns.

But as somber as the basic subject matter is, PuLa manages to inject humor into it, even if the humor is dark. When I first read Antu Barva, I just read it as a slightly humorous life sketch. As I have re-read it and re-heard its narration over the years, I have come to recognize it as something beyond just that. It is one of PuLa's best allegorical social commentaries in my opinion. He was duly recognized for Vyakti Aani Valli, the book that this sketch appears in, with a Sahitya Akademi Puraskaar. In that book, I think this is THE most impressive and multi-layered sketch.

For years, I considered translating Antu Barva here but was too intimidated given how nuanced it is. PuLa gave Antu a specific Konkani "voice" (in text form as well as when he narrated the sketch for TV) that is impossible to translate. No matter how well I tried, I thought I would end up doing injustice to the original work. This is in addition to the usual difficulties in translating PuLa's wordplay and nuanced observations. So it is with a great sense of trepidation that I am even attempting this today. A LOT will get lost in translation. But I hope PuLa's fans will forgive me any errors. Because I think this particular piece is one of the greatest literary achievements from an Indian and it deserves a wider audience.

Miss you, PuLa. Bhool-chook maaf kara.

Ratnagiri's middle lane has been home to some towering personalities over the years. God used a unique formula when creating these people. These people tend to be a metaphorical amalgam of Ratnagiri's most famous products - sweet mango, rough jackfruit, hard coconut, irritating colocasia leaves, and intense betel nuts whose one bite will make your heart jump up your throat.    

It is in this unique Ratnagiri soil that Antu Barva grew and ripened. Actually, Antu's age doesn't really justify people casually calling him just "Antu". When I first met him 12-14 years ago, not just his stubble, but even the hair on his ears and chest had turned white. His teeth had mostly gone "Annu Gogtya".

Going Annu Gogtya = falling.

This is an idomatic phrase that Antu Barva coined. A lawyer from Ratnagiri named Annu Gogte has been standing in the local elections for many years. Standing and then falling. Repeatedly, without even coming close to winning. So even if a bucket falls in a well, Antu asks "has the bucket gone Annu?"

When someone is talking about old Antu, they just refer to him in the singular casual "Antu". As it is, characters from Konkan are quite singular. But no one calls Antu just "Antu" to his face.  They call him Antu sheth!

True blue Brahmin Antu got this trader caste suffix "sheth" decades ago. After all Antu himself had committed a sin justifying this demotion. During the first world war, Antu started a shop near the docks. It failed spectacularly even before the Treaty of Versailles. But that short-lived stint as a shopkeeper was enough to turn Antu into Antu sheth.

After that, no one remembers Antu doing anything specific to make a living. He manages to somehow score at least two square meals a day from somewhere. He has a little plot of land with a garden that has a couple of dozen coconut and Alphonso mango trees, sprinkled with the odd jackfruit and tamarind tree. He has a little single-room shack on that land. He has the right to draw water from the nearby well. Antu sheth manages to get by on all this.

I first met Antu at Bapu Hegishte's store. I had gone there to buy some cigarettes when Antu's face peered out from behind a newspaper. He slid his reading glasses up his forehead and said,

"You're Lawyer saheb's son-in-law, right?"

"Yes" I replied.

"Ahha! I recognized you right away! Please, have a seat, please. Bapu, some tea for our jawaibapu (a respectful term for son-in-law)!"

I had no idea who this guy was, suddenly acting so familiar. Antu sheth himself explained,

"Your father-in-law is a good friend of mine. Tell him Antu Barva said hello."

"Sure."

"Hmmm....when did you come from Pune?"

"Two days ago."

"Of course....the first Diwali after you got married....haha...ask him for a Ford car!"

"He is your friend. Why don't you tell him?"

"Haha, you're from Pune after all. Can't get the last word with you." he laughed. "So...staying long or just a flying visit?"

"Just a short trip. I'm leaving in a couple of days."

"Excellent! It's always good to keep such visits short. Familiarity breeds contempt and all that. Don't end up like that Kasopkar's son-in-law. He set up camp for six months. Finally Kasopkar lost his patience and made him plow his land! When a son-in-law stays with you for too long, he starts feeling like a pain in the neck, right?"

"You're right." I nodded.

"Bapusheth, I hope you recognized our lawyer's son-in-law. We are both your father-in-law's clients, jawaibapu."

Bapu Hegishte smiled and folded his hands in greeting.

"Welcome. Would you like to have some tea?" he asked.

"No, it's okay. It's really hot right now."

"Of course, it's always going to be hot in Ratnagiri!" Antu jumped in. "You can't sleep in a cowshed and then complain about the stink of cow piss! If Ratnagiri had cool weather, they'd have called it Shimla, not Ratnagiri!"

Before I could say anything, Antu continued,

"But the heat is way worse in your neighborhood with all those houses next to each other. Come to my garden near the beach. My garden is...how do you say...."aircondition"!"

Antu sheth said the last words in English and laughed, and then added,

"That's our country joke, jawaibapu!"

Then he addressed Hegishte again.

"Bapusheth, did you know our jawaibapu here is a writer? Writes plays and movies and what not. Behave properly when he is around or he'll write a hilarious farce about you."

The pride I felt on my fame having spread even to someone like Antu Barva was dashed by Bapu Hegishte's next question. Bapusheth looked me up and down carefully for a few seconds and said,

"What do you do?"

"What the hell do you mean what does he do?" Antu thundered. "Are you insane, Hegishte? Take out that pile of raddi old newspapers and open them. You'll see his name and picture in dozens of places! He makes movies!"

"Movies!!?? Really??" Hegishte's expression changed to one of wonderment and he looked at me as if I was God.

"Jawaibapu, speaking of movies, can I ask you a question if you don't mind?"

I could see the naughty expression on Antusheth's face as he asked me this.

"Sure, go ahead."

"How much money do you make from one movie?"

This wasn't my first trip to Konkan. So by now, I had gotten used to dealing with such intensely personal questions.

"That really varies from movie to movie." I deflected.

"But still....I mean I have read that you get like a million or a million and a half."

"No way! There isn't nearly that kind of money in Marathi films."

"Yeah, but still. Even if you don't get fistfuls, you must be getting at least 2-3 pinchfulls?"

"You get it sometimes, and also lose it sometimes." I stuck to being vague.

"Well of course, it's a business after all. When it comes to business, you win some, you lose some. It's all part of the game."

Antu sheth got philosophical. But only for a moment.

"Can I ask you one more question? Only if you don't get angry."

"What's there to get angry about? Go ahead."

"Well..you know....whatever we read about these film actresses in magazines and all....is that real or is it fake like Gangadhar Basthe's "real" Belgaum butter?"

"What do you mean all this about film actresses?" I kept a straight face and pretended to not get what he was saying.

"Quite a skillful guy you are, jawaibapu. Skillful! You'll make a great witness in court!" Antu sheth was having none of it. "All this about film actresses as in...the whole index finger nostril thing."

I didn't immediately get what he meant by the whole index finger nostril thing. So Antu sheth gently tapped his index finger against his nostril and winked. Fortunately, before I had to say anything, a waiter arrived with the tea Hegishte had ordered.

"Looks like all the cows in Ratnagiri are still pregnant, Jhampya!" Antu made a sarcastic remark to the waiter on the color of the tea. And then he poured the tea in the saucer and started slurping it.

Actually, Antu sheth could have just said to the waiter in plain words that the tea was low on milk. But he preferred the "all the cows are still pregnant" phrasing. Why just Antu sheth? Almost everyone from that middle lane in Ratnagiri spoke in that sarcastic obtuse way.

By now, Antu sheth and I have become good friends. In the last decade or so, whenever I have gone to Ratnagiri, I have spent time with him. He always included me in his group of friends, taught me the ganjifa card games they played. And over the years, I heard a lot monologues on the odd philosophy of life that those men in their 60s had developed.

I even learned all the idiomatic phrases the group had come up with. They all dressed similar. A cotton loincloth from the waist below, a small cotton scarf on the shoulder, worn-out sandals, one hand holding a walking stick, and the other holding a jackfruit. Dressed like that, Antu sheth would roam around in the neighborhood calling his friends to join him every afternoon.

"Govindbhat! Wanna play a couple of hands?"

"Paranjape? Are you awake or have you turned into a python?"

I too became a part of their card game gang. If once in a while, the card game wasn't really panning out well, Antu would put the cards down and say to me,

"Jawaibapu, why don't you sing a Malkauns or something? Godbolya, bash a little tabla with our guest. Khaju sheth, open your decrepit harmonium."

And then we'd have an impromptu jam session for a bit at Antu sheth's orders.

"Jawaibapu, your pipes are kick-ass!" he'd compliment my singing in his unique way.

Every other year or so, I'd visit Ratnagiri and attend Antu sheth's court. But with each visit, the court seemed to be getting smaller.

"Antu sheth, haven't seen Damu kaka around." I asked once.

"Who? Damu Nene? He is living it up! I am told Rambha is rubbing oil on his bald head, and Urvashi is airing him with a fan!"

"What????"

"What do you mean what? Damu Nene got transferred from Ratnagiri!" and Antu Sheth pointed to the sky.

"Oh!" I finally understood what he meant. "I am so sorry. I had no idea."

"Why would you have any idea about it? Do you think that they're going to announce on the radio that Damu Nene has croaked? His family did pay for an obituary in the newspaper though. Heh, they wrote he was loving, caring, friendly, pious, and what not. What do the newspaper folks care? As long as you are paying, they will publish any nonsense."

Antu continued in his characteristic manner.

"Damu Nene and loving? Hmpf! Even when he was lying dead on the pyre, the furrow on his brow was intact! One day he decided to sleep outdoors because it was too hot. They found him dead the next morning. Lucky bugger. Died on Ashadhi Ekadashi too! So there were two processions from Ratnagiri that day. One for Lord Vithoba and another for Damu Nene. Damu died on Ashadhi. And then on Dussehra, Dattu Paranjape crossed the border and did seemolanghan. The first guy croaked, the second guy croaked.....now waiting for the third. They say things happen in three."

Antu looked at me mischievously and shrugged.

And that's the essence of Antu Barva for you. Standing at less than 5 feet, bronze-fair complexion, small pockmarks on his face, small gray eyes, creased skin belying his advanced age, half his teeth fallen....or "gone Annu"...leading to a new habit of poking his tongue through the gaps while talking.... and with all this, weighing in at barely 100 lbs.

Every aspect of Antu Barva's earthly existence was getting worn out with each passing year except for two - the nasal booming voice and the slick intelligence fed by decades of rubbing coconut oil on his head.

It wasn't just Antu sheth. Almost all the men his age from that part of Ratnagiri were of a similar bent....which was a crooked bent. Their language was unnecessarily complex and their attitude exceedingly cynical. They didn't feel happy if someone did well, and didn't feel sad if a tragedy befell someone. There was no joy for births, no mourning for deaths. Most of them apart from Antu didn't really like music, but didn't dislike it either. And when it came to food, the taste and flavors didn't matter, as long as their belly got filled. The engine of their life never really faltered when it ran out of steam, nor did it go fast when it did have some steam. But the road their lives took was like every road in Konkan- serpentine.

That's the hand life had dealt them. Even though their lives were full of the wholesome coconut tree, their fates and thus their tastes leaned less towards the sweet creamy inside of the coconut, and more towards its tough shell.


One summer, a second-rate theater company from Mumbai was touring Ratnagiri staging Ram Ganesh Gadkari's famous play Ekach Pyala. I went to watch it. The production was barely competent in the first act. At intermission, I walked outside to the hissing clinks of soda bottles being opened. Under a Kitson lamp, I saw Antu sheth's diminutive form. He was talking to the fur-cap clad manager of the theater company.

"So....how's the attendance?" Antu sheth asked.

"Not bad." the manager gruffly replied.

"Not bad? Most of the chairs seem empty. Why don't you let me in for half price?"

"No way!" the manager shook his head rudely.

"Why are you brushing me away like a lizard? I heard the first act from out here anyway. The guy playing Sindhu doesn't seem to be very good."

[aside - in the early-to-mid 20th century in orthodox Maharashtra, it was taboo for women to perform on stage. So much like in Shakespeare's days, female parts were usually played by men. The legendary Bal Gandharva excelled at this and one of his most famous roles was playing Sindhu in the first staging of Ekach Pyala.]

"The guy playing Sindhu doesn't seem to be very good." Antu sheth said. "He sang 'lage hridayi hurhur' like a squeaking mouse. Did you ever hear how Bal Gandharva sang it?"

The manager got pissed off.

"I'm not begging you to come watch it!" he thundered.

"But the town is full of your advertising boards begging us to come watch it." Antu sheth instantly replied. "And yesterday your people were going door to door with fliers. As it is, it's mainly empty chairs you are showing this play to. How about four annas?"

"Four annas? What is this? A monkey performing on the street?"

"That's better than this! They perform first and then circulate a plate for money. Why don't you try that? If the next act is better than the first one, I'll pay you an extra four annas!"

The people standing around them started laughing and the manager got even more upset. That's when Antu sheth noticed me.

"Namaskar, jawaibapu! How's it going? How's Ekach Pyala?"

"It's okay." I said.

"I'm sure you got a complimentary pass. You're from the same community. I have heard that barbers don't charge each other for shaves."

"No, nothing like that. See, I bought a ticket."

"Then why a wishy-washy response like "it's okay"? You've paid hard-earned money for this, haven't you? Assert your rights as a paying customer. Call it what it is. Utter crap. Especially that guy playing Sindhu is totally useless!"

"What do you mean the guy playing Sindhu? It's a woman playing the role." I told him.

"WHAT??" Antu sheth looked genuinely shocked. "You're kidding me! That voice and that built! If she decides, she can lift Sudhakar up like a baby! Sindhu indeed.......more like Sindhudurg!"

"So you watched the play after all?"

"For a few minutes. Moved the curtains from the window and had a peek. Hmpf! Even gypsy performers are better than these idiots."

Antu sheth spat out another unsolicited opinion and walked away.

But that's pretty much what his life was - spitting out unsolicited opinions. I knew Antu for so many years, but I never found out much about his family situation. Once Anna Sane from Antu's court had let slip a mention of his son.

"What? Antu sheth has a son?" I asked.

"Of course he has a son. Not only that, his son is a Collector!" Anna Sane nonchalantly said.

"Collector???"

"Yup. He's in charge of collecting tickets on Byculla station." he deadpanned without letting a single muscle move.

"Doesn't look like he helps out his father financially."

"He does sometimes. When he can. He has his own family. Besides, a Western Railway compartment has been attached to a Central Railway train."

A PhD student could do a dissertation on those guys' peculiar idioms and phrases. I was well-versed in the language by now but it took me a few moments to realize that this was code for an inter-religion marriage.

"So you see, Antu sheth has trouble with his post-bath rituals at his son's place. Plus apparently his son is also into some other Anglicized habits if you know what I mean. So how can Antu sheth spend too much time there? Still, once Antu sheth swallowed all the insults and went to Mumbai to see his grandson. Came back looking like he had messed up a math problem."

"Every Dussehra and Diwali, Antu gets his son's love in the form of a money order. Not much, maybe 5-10 rupees. For a few days after that, Antu acts like he's won the lottery and splurges as much as he can. Which isn't much."

"Understandable." I said. "After all, how much can a ticket collector's pay be?"

"Yeah, the pay is pretty meager. But one hears that a ticket collector can also make a little more on the side, especially in holiday season if you know what I mean." Anna said. "Nothing wrong with it of course. If he has an opportunity to make some money, why shouldn't he? You know how it is in this country. If you get caught taking a ten rupee bribe, they put a striped cap on your head and send you to prison. But if you get caught taking a million rupee bribe, they put a Gandhi cap on your head and send you to Parliament! Democraticaly elected people's representative!"

Politics was the most favorite topic for Antu sheth and his buddies to express their unique opinions on. They had profound thoughts on every politician and party. One year, there was a famine in Konkan. Konkan is always facing a famine as it is. But this particular one was so bad that in Antu sheth's words it had "been approved under the Famine Act".

Nehru was touring the famine-hit parts of Konkan. He visited Ratnagiri for a speech and the whole town was caught up in Nehru-mania. One evening, someone asked Antu sheth,

"Antu sheth, I didn't see you at the speech?"

"Whose speech? Nehru's? Hmpf!" Antu sheth's disdain was obvious. "What nonsense. There's a famine here. Stop giving speeches. Give us food! This is like seeing a man drowning and instead of saving him, reading from the Quran to ensure that he doesn't end up in hell. Utterly useless. But everyone else is stupid. Oh, Nehru is here? He is giving a speech? He gives great speeches! Let's go! Bloody lemmings!"

"And now that Nehru is in Ratnagiri, what did they do? Idiots took him to show the house, room, and bed where Lokmanya Tilak was born! Morons. Tell me, did god appear in Gangadhar Tilak's dreams and tell him that your wife is going to give birth to a great leader? How would anyone even remember what bed Tilak was born on? But who cares? They just showed Nehru some random room and bed and bluffed - this is where Tilak first went WAAAAAAAAAA."

"Morons! Where's the proof? Where's the proof? Did they get the midwife from Tilak's birth to certify the bed? Hmpf! Forget Tilak. It's been a 100 years since he was born. You tell me. Can your own mother confidently identify the room and the bed where she gave birth to you? Go ask her and then tell me about Nehru and Tilak."

And so ended the rant.

I always wondered if there was anything or anyone in the world that Antu sheth and his friends had respect for. If they ever had a polite dignified response for anything at all.      

Somebody's son became a Professor. And Antu's response,

"Professor? In a circus?There used to be this Professor Chhatre in circuses performing magic tricks."

Someone opened a new store. And Antu's response,

"Tell him to have a bankruptcy form ready. It'll save time when the inevitable happens."

Who knows what school of philosophy these guys followed. More than half of them survived on money orders from children and relatives. They saved money from that and file lawsuits for the strangest reasons. Every lawsuit is stuck in delayed hearing dates. These guys have a big beautiful sea coast, coconut trees, gardens, everything you could reasonably hope for to be happy. But that apparent prosperity gets punctured by an occasional bout of misfortune and all that remains is an impenetrable shield of gallows humor.

Somehow the topic of Gandhi came up. And Antu sheth got on his soap box.

"Gandhi? What Gandhi? Traveled all over the world, but never came to Ratnagiri! Because he was smart. He knew that here, no one gives a damn about his loincloth or his walking stick. We are all just as naked and just as skinny. And his obsession with spinning khadi. It's all useless. Our own Shambhu sheth. All his life, he followed Gandhi's teachings and spun khadi for his clothes. Forget the British government, even Ratnagiri's Collector Gilligan didn't fear his "civil disobedience". And you're talking about Gandhi."

"Then there are all his hunger strikes and fasts. Half of Konkan is hungry and fasting, and not by choice. Someone who is well-fed will find something remarkable about hunger strikes. What do we care? Don't get me wrong. I am not saying Gandhi wasn't a great man. He was. But in our books, under what column should we make an entry for his greatness? And if you are talking about independence, then that had nothing to do with Gandhi, or Tilak or Savarkar."

"So did independence just fall out of the sky?" I asked him.

"It's up to you to find out where it fell out of." Antu replied. "One thing I am sure of is that the Brits left because they got bored. What more was left for them to loot? Their Raj business started making a loss, so they effectively declared bankruptcy and went home. The potter left with his pottery, and we sit here cradling his leftover broken pieces. This is all just a cycle of life and bigger than anything we can comprehend. It's not British rule, nor is it Nehru's rule, nor people's rule, nor anyone's rule. It's the creator's rule."  

"So how did your creator end up siding with the British?" I asked.

"Don't be silly. The creator is sitting pretty on his throne. He just played a small game."

"A game that translated into 150 years of slavery?"

"It's 150 years for you and me." Antu sheth was steadfast. "The almighty's wrist watch doesn't move forward by even one second unless a thousand years go by for us. In his eyes and on his scale, all this is just a minor game that lasted barely a millisecond."

When these emaciated old men started spouting this philosophy on the front yards of that impoverished middle lane in Ratnagiri, with dark shadows formed by the dim light of their age-worn oil lamps dancing on their wrinkled faces, my heart couldn't help but shudder.

"Socialism? What socialism? All nonsense, I tell you. Not even two mango leaves are alike. And these guys want to pretend all men are equal. In the creator's eyes, each individual is unique. How are they going to have equal opportunities or equal outcomes? But everyone is just blabbering....socialism is coming. Just like that Ratnagiri's legislator is saying...Konkan Railway is coming, Konkan Railway is coming. Sure, Konkan Railway is coming. And it's tracks are going through where one-armed Pandu Gurav's toilet used to be. Even if it does, is it going to make Pandu's shoulder stump sprout an arm? What difference will it make?"

"And without an arm to plow his field or pick his crops, no matter what you do with that damn railway, what good is it going to do him? He is still the same. Just because India became independent, does not mean that Hari Sathe's lazy eye got fixed. Nor did Mahadev Godbole's paunch disappear.  Nothing really changed. Even in the fabled Ram Rajya, Ram didn't uproot Hanuman's tail and attach it to his own ass. No. Ram stayed a man, and Hanuman stayed a monkey."

At such times, it almost seem like the Goddess of Wisdom Saraswati is sitting on Antu sheth's tongue.

"You're right." I said.

"Don't just say I am right for the heck of it to be polite. If I am wrong, say that and correct me. You might be younger than me when it comes to age, but when it comes to education, you are my elder, jawaibapu!"

Once in a while, Antu sheth will say something genuinely from his heart, without any sarcasm. But there is always some burning issue close to his heart underlying what he says.

The last few years, I could not go to Ratnagiri as often as I used to. In the meanwhile, Ratnagiri finally got electricity, its own college, tar roads, and all other features of 20th century life. When I met him after that, I said,

"Antu sheth, your Ratnagiri has now become posh! Electric lights and everything. Did your house get an electric connection?"

"No, not yet. But it's good that it's dark. Tomorrow even if I do get electricity, what is there to look at in that bright light? A penniless life? Who needs electricity to look at chipped walls and leaking shingles? It's better that my poverty stays hidden in darkness."

And then he laughed loudly for a full minute like it was a joke.

This time I saw that his teeth had gone almost completely Annu Gogte. I also learned that a couple of more friends of his had passed on and that the card game court was emptier than ever. For a change, I spotted a sense of love, longing, and kindness in the way Antu sheth spoke. I guess the empty seats at his card games were starting to make a place in his heart.

"Joglekar's son got a big promotion and moved to Delhi!" Antu sheth voluntarily shared some pleasant news without his customary sarcastic rejoinder. "Took his old man to Kashi, Haridwar, Vishweshwar, Hrishikesh and all. Fed a 100 brahmins there. Old man Joglekar was thoughtful enough to get me a small sealed pot with water from the Ganga. When you come visit next time, jawaibapu, you'll probably see that the seal has been broken and the water was poured down my throat if you know what I mean."

The next time I visited Ratnagiri, fortunately Antu sheth's Ganga water pot was still sealed.

"Wow, jawaibapu, wow! Congratulations! I heard you're going to England! Congratulations! Have a great trip. Just one "request" for you. Now I have to speak with you in English. So a "request"."

"What request?"

"Go see the Kohinoor diamond once. For some reason, it's an obsession I have always had, the Kohinoor diamond. I can't go see it, but you do it on my behalf. And then come back and tell me how it looks. See all the sights in London and Paris and everything!"

For some reason, I was overcome with a desire to touch his feet, something I had never done before. Right there on the street, I bent down and touched his feet.

"Live a long life!" Antu sheth touched my head gently. "You are a good person, which is why you are so successful."

I said goodbye and started to leave. I had barely gone four steps when I suddenly heard the familiar

"Jawaibapu!!!"

"Yes, Antu sheth?" I turned around.
  
"Forgot to ask you one thing. Are you going alone or with your wife?"

"Both of us are going."

"That's good. Don't mind me, I just had a nagging doubt, so I asked. You are going far away to learn something new. So I was reminded of Devayani's tale from mythology. Hahaha. Convey my blessings to your wife too. I am telling you, your good fortune is all because of her. That's all life is eventually about - the right woman."

Antu sheth paused and continued.

"Let me tell you something. Just between us. My wife passed away 40 years ago. Since then, the alphonso mango tree near my door has stopped flowering. When she was around, the tree yielded hundreds of mangoes every year. But since she left.....you know....fate can take really strange turns. Sorry, I am rambling. Anyway, safe travels. So when are you leaving from Ratnagiri?"

"Tomorrow morning by bus."

"Direct Ratnagiri to Mumbai?"

"Yes."

"Good call. Once someone completes that journey, then even traveling around the world seems easy in comparison. The other day Tatya Jog made the trip. He is still trying to locate all his bones.  Told me some 7-8 bones are missing!"

And he started laughing hard with his mouth wide open. I noticed that there was only one tooth remaining that hadn't gone Annu Gogte.

The next morning at 5 AM at the bus stand, I again heard the familiar cry,

"JAWAIBAPU!"

Antu sheth approached me and gave me a small paper pouch.

"I know you don't believe in god, jawaibapu, but do me a favor and keep this in your pocket. It is holy ash. It will keep you safe. You are going to London by air, so this small pouch shouldn't add too much weight to your luggage."

I put the pouch in my pocket. As the bus got going, I saw Antu sheth lift his shirt and gently wipe tears from his small blinking gray eyes. In that dim dawn light, seeing his bony chest and his concave stomach which had all but touched his back suddenly tugged at my heart.

Just like Konkan's jackfruit, it's people taste sweet only when they ripen for a long time.

Alpha2L Pumps Domestic Circulator

Alpha2L Pumps Domestic Circulator

he Grundfos ALPHA2 L is an advanced energy efficient domestic circulator that meets EuP legislative requirements. This makes it an ideal choice for a variety of domestic circulation heating systems. The ALPHA2 L achieves the highest possible energy savings in comparison to older technology fixed speed pumps. The reduction in power consumption has been achieved by using the latest permanent magnet motor technology and this power consumption can be as low as 5 watts. The variable speed modulating modes allows the pump to match its performance to the system requirements, helping to reduce noise when thermostatic valves are closing down. The ALPHA2 L models are simple to install in new or existing systems, and are 130mm between ports. Features and benefits Meets EuP legislative demands Energy efficient pump - significant energy savings Variable and fixed speed operation – one pump for all jobs Plug and Pump – no need to open terminal box 5 year warranty   Technical data Liquid Temperature: +2°C @ 110°C  Maximum Ambient: 37°C @ 82°C Flow Min Inlet Pressure: 1.3m @ 82°C Flow Maximum System Pressure: 10 Bar Mean Sound Pressure Level: Control of heating systems The heat requirements of a building vary greatly and today thermostatic radiator valves efficiently control the system output. This can lead to excessive pump pressure and valve noise. ALPHA2 L can not only adapt to these variable conditions but reduce electrical energy consumption.   Fixed speed pump mode With a fixed speed pump, as the radiator TRV’s close, the system resistance increases causing an increase in pump pressure which can lead to TRV noise.   Pressure controlled mode As the TRV’s close the pump pressure is controlled according to the selected mode. At the reduced pressure the TRV’s then re-adjust to maintain the required output. The pump pressure reduces radiator valve noise and power consumption. Installation and operating guidance When installing the ALPHA2 L, please refer to the Installation and Operating Instructions, if using pump in either constant pressure or proportional pressure mode. *Please refer to the boiler manufacturers minimum flow rate requirements when setting bypass valves.

          Remove illegal ramps   

Home owners and business operators in western Trinidad have been warned to desist from constructing illegal carriageways/driveways and installing metal vehicular ramps as the Port-of-Spain City Corporation could soon be embarking on action to remove the structures.

Persons found to be in breach of the law can face a maximum fine of $5,000, plus an additional $500 thereafter, for each day the offence continues.

Pleading for the corporation to take action now, St James East Councillor, Jameel Bisnath, said it is time that errant law-breakers be made an “example.”

Making the impassioned plea during the corporation’s monthly statutory meeting at City Hall yesterday, Bisnath urged the council to take immediate action to ensure persons comply with the law as it was proving to be a “nuisance.”

Renewing the call he has been making for the past year, Bisnath said the problem increased as residential and commercial entities continued to ignore the regulations governing the construction of carriageways/driveways within the municipality.

Act 21 of 1990, section 125 (1) states, “No person may break up or open the surface pavement, or soil of any street within a Municipality which is maintainable by the Council or lay any pipe or wire or any other matter or thing in or under any such street or any part of the subsoil thereof for any purpose, or place or erect any pole, post hoarding or barricade or other structure in any such street without the prior consent of the Council.”

Urging mayor Joel Martinez to act, Bisnath said, “People putting down things left, right and centre, all over. Even on Independence Square.”

Appealing for some kind of assurance the problem would be addressed in the short-term, Bisnath explained, “People are putting down illegal metal ramps on the streets to access their properties and this is blocking the free flow of water and also hindering persons from parking.”

He added, “These ramps have the drains looking very nasty as our sweepers cannot get access to under them as a tractor is needed to remove them for the drain to be cleaned.”

Acknowledging that each property was allowed one entrance, he said persons without an entrance were entitled to come in to the City Engineer’s Department and apply for one at no cost to them. Bisnath added that the same rule applied to persons wanting additional entrances.

He warned that while there was no cost attached to constructing an entrance, the home-owner or business operator would be billed for the removal of any illegal structures by the corporation.

Bisnath said errant persons would be given a notice to desist and remove the ramps in the first instance, before the POSCC would take action.

During yesterday’s meeting, Martinez also commended the staff of the corporation for their efforts to ensure homes and businesses were not adversely affected by the passage of last week’s Tropical Storm Bret.

He applauded the commitment of the Disaster Management Unit under the stewardship of Keith Cook, whom he said was on hand to assist the three families who lost their roofs during the storm as well as the other four households who were left without an electricity supply after a pole was downed.

Martinez said the corporation had also begun a regularisation exercise along Charlotte St. as he said officials had already begun meeting with registered vendors to inform them of the process to revitalise that part of the City.

One of my daughters is a geologist and when both daughters were living at home, we spent many years rockhounding around our province of Nova Scotia, Canada as a family. I still go on field trips and have set up a small research lab area plus a rock and mineral studio. I live near some of the best gypsum sites in Nova Scotia and have begun working with gypsum as an art material. I refer to my studio as GypsumWorks Studio and hope to post some gallery photos on this site once I become more familiar with uploading photos and creating galleries. I uploaded one photo successfully so it's a start.

Plan to write a few articles and get to know other users. I used to write HTML code so that will come back to me quickly.

          Comment on Log your electricity consumption with Powermon433 by Steve Fowler   
Ack! It turns out that there is a bug in the Arduino code if the device ID = 0x0000, since every frame ends up having a valid CRC and gets treated as an ID frame. (Naturally, my out-of-box device ID was 0x0000. :-( The easy workaround is to hold reset on the sensor for 10-ish seconds to force it to assume a new device ID and proceed from there. Also, FYI, the Adafruit Feather M0 433 looks like a perfect platform for this Arduino code, since it is small and has an RFM69HCW receiver built-in. Just a few pin changes, I hope ... maybe (TBD.)

          A Separate Thread for Gary Gaulin   
Post by GaryGaulin
I just went over the article, and can add:

Quote
Relatedly, Penfield observed that spontaneous electrical discharges in the brain cause involuntary sensations and movements and even emotions, but never abstract reasoning or calculation. There are no “calculus” seizures or “moral” seizures, in which patients involuntarily take second derivatives or ponder mercy.


The above is expected, from a vector mapped movement based system.

Quote
Similar observations emerge from Roger Sperry’s famous studies of patients who had undergone surgery to disconnect the hemispheres of the brain. This was done to prevent seizures. The post-operative patients experienced peculiar perceptual and behavioral changes, but they retained unity of personal identity—a unified intellect and will. The changes Sperry discovered in his research (for which he won a Nobel Prize) were so subtle as to pass unnoticed in everyday life.


It is not normal for one hand to keep trying to light a cigarette while the other hand keeps throwing it away. That and other examples of the known side effects of corpus callosotomy surgery indicates that the patients did not fully retain their "unity".

Quote
In the past decade, British researcher Adrian Owen has found using fMRI imaging that some patients with such severe brain damage that they are considered to be in a persistent vegetative state are actually capable of sophisticated thought. The “comatose” patients’ brain scans show that, in reply to questions by an examiner, the patients are in fact thinking and imagining.


The above is also expected, from what at least I have for a model. The important part needed for imagination is at the end of the brain stem, not all the optional add-ons that surround it.

Gladiatorae
Gladiatorae In heat of the Roman summer the arena calls for blood… for centuries the spectacle of gladiatorial combat delighted untold masses across the Empire. Never failing to amaze, it was a dance of death fought in the sweat stained sand. Men and women, from slaves to pontiffs, from untried fodder to celebrated champions; the arena would leave its mark- transforming those who entered its world into hardened warriors, or delivering them quickly into the arms of death. Gladiatorae is a huge assortment of poses for Victoria and Michael, gritty and dangerous, engaged in deadly gladiatorial combat of the most intimate kind- unarmed. This pack features 30 poses for two master gladiators doing battle, and 30 poses for gladiatrix vs. gladiatrix locked in a deadly duel. 20 solo poses are also included which depict our fearless combatants stretching and preparing for the fight to come, as well as sprawled in defeat or rapturous in victory. The Gladiatrix character full body morph is also included (INJ + REM), along with the Reset Body pose and 50 cameras to coincide with the poses for supremely dramatic action. The combat poses work with limits set to off OR on, though a few of the solo poses were designed with limits set to OFF. https://www.renderosity.com/mod/bcs/gladiatorae/91730/

07. The African Spirit [4:58]
08. Speak Out [6:23]
09. Blue Mambo [6:13]
10. The Child In You [4:35]

A switch back to Atlantic finds Jean-Luc Ponty continuing to dabble in West African waters while re-establishing his earlier solid base in repeating sequenced patterns. The electronics are back, for Ponty splits his time between the electric violin and various synthesizers and sequencers while Abdou M'Boup and Sydney Thiam add African percussion, which often takes a back seat to the electronics as the rhythmic basis for the music. This time, though, the material Ponty has composed isn't as compelling as it had been in the past; at times, Ponty sounds like he is very competently treading water (though "Blue Mambo" has a compelling groove). Yet despite all of the changes Ponty has put himself through, his music still has a Continental elegance that cannot be mistaken for that of anyone else. -- Richard S. Ginell

          Chick magnet   
My newest magnetic nail polish acquisition is Sinful Colors in "It's Electric". I haven't really been feeling the magnetic nail polish trend but saw this for only 4.99 and thought it was worth the chance.

First off, the magnet is practically glued into the top, and I quite literally nearly lost a nail trying to pull it off from the bottle cap. I put on a thin layer and then placed the magnet above my thumbnail immediately. The polish was decently opaque in one coat, except... nothing happened. I did one more thin coat (nice thing about magnetic polishes) and tried again. The magnet finally started working but it wasn't super even like in the pictures. Nevertheless, I'm intrigued and practice makes perfect, right?

What I envisioned....

Reality....hmmm


          Informing Business Decisions with Lean CRM   

Informing Business Decisions with Lean CRM

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 11/08/2006 -- According to Larry Caretsky, President of Commence Corporation (www.commence.com/mfg./), "Analyze and review the data to inform business decisions is critical for Industrial executives. It is one of the most valuable parts of lean CRM sales automation system is the data accumulated after a few months of use."

To mine this data, smart industrial distributors and manufacturers have followed these steps.

1. Identify the business problem.
2. Mine data to transform data into actionable information.
3. Act on the information.
4. Measure the results.

Caretsky cites an example: A sales manager at an electrical distributor instinctively knew that some customers were getting too much service based on their volume of annual sales. To verify his gut feeling, he mined data in his sales and marketing database to see the number of quotes, calls, and service tickets for each customer and compared it to the total volume of sales in the previous 12 months. A list of 25 customers were obviously taking a lot of the sales team's effort, but delivering comparably little revenue. The sales manager then worked with each account's sales rep to come up with a plan to either increase the revenue from these customers or reduce the time spent servicing them. After 3 months of their efforts, he reviewed the data, and found that significant profitability improvements had been made.

In an effort to help industrial distributors and manufacturers thrive, Commence Corporation presents Practices That Pay: Leveraging Information to Achieve Industrial Selling Results, a compendium of smart practices from the leading industrial sales and marketing experts and organizations that are growing in today's challenging environment.

Commence offers lean industrial companies complete "Freedom Of Choice" to select the solutions and platform that best meets the business requirements of manufacturers and distributors. The comprehensive CRM Industrial application suite is available for use on premise or on-demand as a hosted service. Industrial leaders often build departmental lean CRM solutions with the award winning Commence Lean Industrial CRM Framework. These choices are why so many industrial companies choose Commence as the solution for managing customer relationships. All Commence Industrial solutions support mobile or wireless connectivity and integration to back-office accounting and ERP systems.

          Investments in Renewable Energy to Top US$7 Trillion by 2040   
The 2017 edition of Bloomberg's 'New Energy Outlook' estimates that through 2040, US$10.2 trillion will be invested in electric power generation, 7.4 trillion of which will go to renewable energy. While falling costs of solar and wind power will accelerate a global energy transition, an additional US$5.3 trillion is required to put the power sector on a trajectory to limit global warming to 2ºC, according to the report. The European Bank for Reconstruction and Development, the Asian Development Bank and the World Bank have undertaken renewable energy projects in Turkey, China and Solomon Islands, respectively.

          Aetna settles on New York for new headquarters in 2018   
Aetna Inc, the third-largest U.S. health insurer, will move its corporate headquarters to New York City next year, making it the latest company to leave Connecticut as the state raises taxes and deals with a budget deficit. New York will get about 250 new workers with the move, while Aetna will keep thousands of jobs in Connecticut and hold on to its Hartford campus. It has about 6,000 employees in the state, most of them in the Hartford area, where it has been located for more than 160 years. The move comes after Aetna and General Electric GE.N publicly criticized the state of Connecticut in 2015 for its taxes and business climate. Later that year, Aetna agreed to be bought by Humana Inc, and a decision about its headquarters was delayed. General Electric announced last year that it was moving its headquarters to Boston from Fairfield, Connecticut. The Humana deal was terminated earlier this year. A few months later, Aetna said it was considering several locations for a new

          Comment on Goldman Sachs Provides a Bearish Picture on Tesla Inc (TSLA) as All Eyes on Model 3 Production by joeinslw   
Goldman Sachs, did you mean Goldman Sucks? What do they know about EV"s (which stands for Electric Vehicles in case you didn't know) I am sick and tired of reading these predictions that aren't true, or way off base. Not to long ago when tsla was 160.00 per share, there was someone who said Tesla Motors a very bad company & a very bad investment, and put a sell rating on Tesla, and I said that was a "Cheap Shot" I still feel that way with people who make snap predictions without knowing all the real facts, and they can't know all the facts. It's well known that the CEO Mr. Elon Musk keeps many of his decisions including information about Tesla close, (as they say close to the vest) and yet people still make predictions that turn out to be completely wrong, and continue to be wrong for the last five years. These wrong predictions are what makes Tesla Motors a risky investment, I have found it to be just the opposite because of these wrong predictions. I have been seeing, and reading about these predictions for the last 5-6 years, nothing has changed they continue to make wrong predictions which is doing a DIS-service to many investors, or who would be investors, but because of these erroneous comments, they shy away, or worse become short sellers because they are convinced that Tesla Motors will fail, go out of business, and screw all their long & loyal investors. Short sellers and others who don't know what Americans want, continue to bash Tesla Motors they fail to see that this CEO Mr. Musk will not allow that to happen. Several years ago when Tesla was just getting started they did get into some serious financial trouble, but the saving grace was Mr. Musk himself, he put his hand into his own pocket, and saved the company, how many company CEO's do you know that would use their own personal cash to do that? The fact that GM crushed all of the leased EV1's they made in 1999 because they supported fossil fueled cars instead is never published, never talked about in any circles, auto magazines, or publications. Nobody seems to care about what Americans or the World wants, and what they want are Electric Cars that make sense, use less energy, don't have the maintenance schedule that fossil fueled cars require, in one word that made the United States a great country, is freedom, but also....choice...

          Trio on trial over Fukushima nuclear disaster   
The first criminal trials relating to the Fukushima nuclear disaster have begun, six years since the triple reactor meltdown. Former residents evacuated from the stricken zone are taking the energy company Tepco to court. Some lost everything they possessed, many lost loved ones, and their case is based on the fact that Tepco never took into account the possible effects of a tsunami on the reactors at the site. "We believe that there should have been thorough countermeasures put in place to protect against a tsunami, and there should have been a clear understanding of that within Tokyo Electric too. I want to know how and why this was being neglected," said the president of the Fukushima Nuclear Disaster Plaintiffs Ruiko Muto.

"Globalisation can't be just about outsourcing and low wages"   [Jeff Immelt, Chief Executive Officer General Electric, quoted in Financial Review, 26 June 2017]

“In an appearance at the University of Chicago on Monday, former President Barack Obama unloaded a relentless barrage of complete sentences in what was widely seen as a brutal attack on his successor, Donald Trump.” [Andy Borowitz writing in The New Yorker, 24 April 2017]

“Coal India—a government-back coal company–is reportedly closing 37 of its "unviable" mines in the next year to cut back on losses.
India is primed for an energy revolution. The country's ongoing economic growth has been powered by fossil fuels in the past, making it one of the top five largest energy consumers in the world. But it has also invested heavily in renewables, and the cost of solar power is now cheaper than ever. In some instances, villages in India have avoided coal-powered electricity altogether, and "leapfrogged" straight to solar power.” [ Journalist Ankita Rao writing in Motherboard, 24 June 2017]

          Builders’ Lien Act Amendments Come into Effect   

Legislative amendments and regulations that will better protect subcontractors and suppliers in the building trades come into effect today, June 30.

Amendments to the Builders’ Lien Act will allow for the earlier release of financial holdbacks to those in the building trades who complete their work on construction projects. New regulations will also ensure notice is given when a construction project is substantially completed.

The requirement to give notice does not apply to owners who are having work done on their residential properties if the contract or work is less than $75,000.

“When homes or commercial buildings are under construction, everyone should be paid in full for their work in a timely manner,” said Justice Minister Mark Furey, Minister responsible for the act. “These changes will allow electricians, plumbers, and other subcontractors to be paid sooner for their work.

“These regulations will also make sure that everyone knows when important stages of a project have been reached.”

The amendments to the act were passed in 2013 and 2014. The changes should also result in savings for the industry and improve productivity.

“The changes to the Builders’ Lien Act will free up money, allowing it to flow back into the economy earlier,” said Duncan Williams, president, Construction Association of Nova Scotia. “The changes will enable contractors to reinvest in their companies, people and capital.

“We hope to see significant improvements in productivity for all in the construction pyramid.”

Un análisis realizado por la empresa de ciberseguridad Kaspersky Lab ha demostrado que al menos la mitad de los objetivos de este 'malware' de cifrado eran empresas de sectores como electricidad, petróleo y gas, transporte o logística.

          Crystal Lake residents seek relief from city for continual flooding in backyards   
CRYSTAL LAKE – Donald Adams never knows how much water to expect in his backyard after seasonal showers and thunderstorms, but the 68-year-old Crystal Lake resident knows rain on his block means he will have to run the water pump.

In most cases, Adams or his wife, Susan, must throw on waders and trudge through about 3 feet of dirty rainwater to fill the pump with gasoline and keep it spitting water out in front of their house on Pine Street.

“If I wasn’t doing that, everybody’s basement would flood,” Adams said. “People don’t realize … I’m still sucking all the groundwater out so that when it does rain, there’s some percolation left.”

Residents living in the block immediately southeast of the Route 14 and West Crystal Lake Avenue intersection are frustrated with the city for not finding a solution to the flooding problem, which has cost them money and left them without access to their backyards for much of the summer. However, the city has been denied grant money to help fund a solution.

Pools of grimy, putrid rainwater stood for weeks after June 14 thunderstorms dumped nearly 5 inches of rain across McHenry County, and about 3 more inches of rain that fell Wednesday night in Crystal Lake made the problem worse.

For between 10 and 12 affected homes, rainwater on average ponds longer than a standard swimming pool and covers large portions of residents' yards. Mosquitoes and other flying insects are attracted to the standing water and make it nearly impossible for people to stand in the backyards at night without pests biting or bothering them, residents said.

“Half the summertime, it’s full of water back there,” said Mike Sanchez, who has lived on West Crystal Lake Avenue for the past two and a half years and is concerned about the safety concern the flooding poses to his children. Sanchez said the family has even considered moving to a different neighborhood.

Thomas O’Brien has lived on the corner of West Crystal Lake Avenue and South Oriole Trail for nearly 50 years and said the buildup of water in his backyard has always been a problem. He remembered watching geese land in "ponds of water" that sometimes extend more than 100 feet across the residents' yards.

O’Brien said the problem has continued over the years as the city has developed the area along South Virginia Street for businesses.

Specifically, O’Brien pointed to the business strip at 25 S. Virginia St. and suggested rainwater could be traveling down the downward-sloping asphalt drive that backs right up to the affected area.

“I think the city goofed on it,” O’Brien said. “My feeling is, if the city gave these people that built the office buildings permits to build, then they should have said, ‘All right, you should have some holding tanks.'"

Adams also takes issue with the businesses building along Virginia Street, which were developed more than decade ago, according to the McHenry County assessor records. Adams said he has kept notes on correspondence with the city dating back to the mid-1990s.

By his estimate, Adams has spent about $30,000 over the years for flooding-related expenses such as gas, oil, electricity and replacing a furnace and hot water tank. He also spent about $5,000 in order to have his basement sanitized.

“We never had water like this until all those properties went in,” Adams said. “Connect the dots; it’s completely absurd to say that has nothing to do with it.”

The city of Crystal Lake has identified the area as one that has “continually flooded,” City Engineer Abby Wilgreen said.

Hey and Associates Inc., an engineering and ecological consulting firm, prepared a report for the city in 2009 on the flooded area between Pine Street and Oriole Trail – labeled the “Pine Street depression” – that suggested a relief storm sewer or a stormwater pumping station could be implemented.

Wilgreen, however, also said the businesses along Virginia Street do not contribute at all to the ongoing problem.

“The area in the backyard is like a big bowl,” Wilgreen said. “Whether that was asphalt or that was grass back there behind that business, the water is still going to end up in those people’s backyards because water flows downhill. It’ll always end there in those backyards because there’s nowhere else for it to go.”

Wilgreen said the city has been pursuing possible solutions to the flooding since at least 2012 that would help resolve the problem for residents.

Between 2012 and 2014, the city twice applied for — and was twice denied — funding from FEMA’s Hazard Mitigation Grant Program that awards grants to states, local governments and Indian tribes for long-term hazard mitigation projects, Wilgreen said.

Grant funding is awarded on a case-to-case basis to projects on either public or private property that are both “environmentally sound” and “cost effective” and aimed at solving a problem and preventing future damage, according to the Illinois Emergency Management Agency website.

“Since we didn’t get that grant, we’re trying to check for everything, and one of the possible options is potentially adding like a pump there that would pump the water into the storm sewers,” Wilgreen said.

She said if the city can create a feasible engineering plan to implement a working pump near the backyards, it would need to be added as an item for next year’s budget approval on May 1, 2018. It also would then need approval from the City Council.

For some residents, confirmation that the city is looking into the problem is enough to quell the frustrations that come with every rainfall. O’Brien’s wife, Mary, said she might not be able to build a small garden in her backyard in the near future but believes someday it will be a possibility.

“When she called, it gave us some hope,” Mary O’Brien said after talking with Wilgreen on the phone.

Other residents, such as Adams, feel like they are going around in circles with the city and believe there is no end in sight.

“They told us that kind of stuff in 2010 and that it would be resolved in 2015,” Adams said. “With all due respect, I don’t believe a word.”

SINGAPORE/LONDON (Reuters) - Asian spot LNG prices edged up this week as production outages in Australia, Thailand and Russia provided the spot market with some support after multiple weeks of muted activity in the region.

Spot prices for August delivery edged higher to$5.50 per million British thermal units (mmBtu) 10 cents higher than last week, said five trading sources on Friday.

Production at the Malaysia-Thailand Joint Development Area (JDA) A-18 block in the Gulf of Thailand, and Australia's Karratha Gas Plant that hosts the North West Shelf (NWS) project was hit by outages on June 24. Meanwhile, Russia's sole LNG plant at the Sakhalin-2 project was stopped for a planned maintenance from mid-June until mid-July.

The series of outages in the region would have typically caused spot prices to spike, traders said, adding that the limited price rise underscored how thin North Asian demand was.

Deal and market activity has been muted despite North Asia heading into the peak summer demand season as inventories in Japan and South Korea remain full.

"All (the North Asian) buyers have stocks, and don't see any urgency to buy," a trader said. "India also will slow down now as a good monsoon means electricity consumption goes down."

The supply disruptions failed to fully reverse weak Asian spot prices, tightening spreads with key European benchmarks to about 50 cents, and helping sustain a three-month trend of rising deliveries to the continent.

The trend took on a global dimension with spot LNG prices in Japan, Mexico, Spain, Britain, Argentina and the United States trading within the closest range seen since 2009/2010, Thomson Reuters LNG analyst Mathilde Jacobsen said.

Tightening global spreads, such as between Asian and European markets, reflect weak Far East demand and healthy supplies, although there is still no underlying convergence between U.S. Henry Hub gas prices and spot LNG prices on international markets.

With more LNG arriving on Europe’s shores, receiving terminals discharged more gas into local grids, terminal send-out data showed.

Outages at North West Shelf, affecting three of five producing trains, had limited impact on spot prices because the plant mostly supplies Japanese customers who have healthy stored inventories, thus curbing spillover into spot markets.

Production at Train 2 is scheduled to restart between July 1-3, while Train 3 is expected to start up over July 10-15, according to trading sources.

Operations at the JDA A-18 natural gas field in the Gulf of Thailand have yet to resume, Thai energy company PTT said on Friday. The firm declined to specify when operations would restart, but added that it was not seeking LNG imports due to sufficient reserves.

          Comment on An Open Letter to Moderates by Ron P   
Dave, "If Trump can manage to pull growth off the 2% peg its has been on for 2 decades – republicans will do well in 2018. If he can not then republicans should not do well." First, I think this administration is showing that the President does not have much influence in Washington when the party is not aligned with the presidents agenda. And I suspect that future GOP presidents will have the same problem as Trump given the fact the Democrats are of two mind sets, liberal and socialist, while the GOP is a multi headed monster where they are unable to come to "compromises" within the party to get anything done. Where the Democrats are all aligned like ducks crossing the street, the GOP is like a group of chickens scattering every which way possible when anything comes up. (Worse than herding cats!) As for your comments about economic growth, one thing that is mentioned occasionally, but not by the conservative mouth pieces, since they want growth as their talking points, is the changing demographics in the country. 1. The baby boomers that fired up this economy for decades are aging, they are no longer buying big ticket items, they are downsizing and their money is now going to leisure and healthcare. 2. The housing boom of the 90's will most likely never be seen again like it had been. Why? The cost of new housing. And much of that is due to land cost. Where land could be purchased for a few thousand per acre when housing boomed and houses could be put on postage sized lots, land now cost up to, and sometimes over 6 figures per acre. Then add to it the growing regulations where communities require lots to be of a certain size, and the land alone has added thousands to a cost of housing construction. 3. The millennials, the next largest demographic group are now starting families and they are now finding they have to pay for things themselves. They no longer are living with mommy and find that what she paid for the past few years is really expensive. They also are finding they have to pay off high student debt that resulted in a somewhat do nothing degree so, due to these reasons and some others, they do not have the money for big ticket items. 4. The millennials also do not want to start out small like their parents did in housing. They grew up in large homes with spacious yards and that is what they want. So the small starter homes are not being built, this generation is living in rental property and that also reduces large ticket purchases, like appliances. 5. The growth in the Hispanic population. One of the fastest growing demographics is the Hispanic population. It will take some time for this group to achieve the standard of living that middle class America enjoys for a number of reasons.. They do not have the money to spend on large items, but their money goes to basic needs. 6. And my last comment, the changing job markets. Over the long run, it is estimated that 40% of all jobs by 2050 (just 30 years from now) will be gone and taken over by robots. Cabbies, Uber drivers, truck drivers, railroad employees, restaurant workers, most warehouse workers and most all manufacturing left in America will be done by robots. This leaves healthcare and service workers, like plumbers, electricians, etc as the major employers in America. (They say technology will drive jobs, but I believe all of those will be overseas and not in America). So as we move toward this 40% reduction which is happening now, people will experience a down turn in income also impacting economic growth. I think 1-2% is the new normal.

          Literally Anchors Away... Fortune Island!   

FORTUNE ISLAND
July 5-6, 2014


Fortune Island, known for its Greece-like ambiance (acropolis), white sand beach, clear waters, beautiful corals and “treacherous waves”. Almost every blog that you will read about this island states that “the waves are crazy”, “it’s a hell out there”, “lucky we survive the waves” and everything that best describes how wild the sea is. That’s why few people came to the island.

The famous Acropolis (night shot)

2nd time around with different set of friends from my previous company.  It was the ride of their lives as we battle the big waves towards the island. A real life “Anchors Away.” I felt guilty while seeing them trying to fight the fear and facing our ride with full courage. But I know in my heart that it was all worth it when we get to the island. As for Me and Elmer, we had worst so this boat ride is never new to us and we know what to expect. 



Ex-officemates before the unforgettable boat ride



________________________________________


Now, about the island…

It is once a VIP Exclusive resort way back 2004 and owned by ex-Batangas Governor Antonio Leviste. After having problems with the government during his reign, this resort has been neglected and the amenities including the Acropolis are slowing deteriorating. Now, it is being managed by a Korean national but more of a diving site. See the map below.
  1. Blu Hole
  2. Coral Garden
  3. Coral Reef
  4. Lobster Rock
  5. Yunha’s Reef Garden
  6. Dessert Point
  7. Zeepney Point
  8. Angkla Point
  9. Red Rock
  10. Bet Cave
  11. Turtle Point
  12. Lubang
  13. Twin Rock
  14. Soft Wall
  15. Shark House
  16. Stepping Stone



The island is consists of more than 10 diving spots including the sunken San Diego Warship (1600). The resort offers semi-white fine sands, clear, bluish waters and a good place for snorkeling. Some of the amenities are still available but not maintained. If you are way too picky, better not use it. There is no electricity and water in the island. The highlight of this place is the Acropolis which is good for photo sessions. Some even went there for their pre-nuptial photoshoot and others just bring dresses and portray as gods and goddesses of the island. Sunset is also best viewed here. If you walk way up to the statue, there’s a stairs leading down a small lagoon where you can go cliff diving. There is also the replica of the sunken warship that used to be a museum but it is also slowly rotting away. Also, the lighthouse that stands at the highest point of the island. It takes about 30 minutes to get there just be careful because there are sharp rocks.

Notes:
  1. Best is to plan your trip to the island during summer because the sea is a lot calmer. If you are planning for a  day trip, come as early as possible and leave before 4am or when the sea is still calm. Boat ride takes about 1 to 1 ½ hours depending on the waves. 
  2. Check for regular weather updates or text Tatay Dante to ask about the weather if its possible to go to the island.
  3. Waterproof your belongings and better wear your swimming clothes co'z you’ll get soaking wet when sea water splashes.
  4. There is no electricity, food and water on the island. Buy all your food and other stuff at the market before going to the island.

          The South Batan   
Batanes Trip
February 15-20, 2014


For our last day in Batanes, we opt to take the last and longest tour which is the South Batan Tour. This includes the spots from the town of Mahatao, Uyugan and Ivana.


1. CHAWA VIEW DECK

First stop is the Chaw View Deck. A cliff overlooking the sea. There's a stairs going down but be careful because some of the steps are damage and can cause you to fall down.







2. MAHATAO BOAT SHELTER

This is a shelter port for boats in case the weather is not good





3. MAHATAO CHURCH (San Carlos Borromeo Church)

"Itinayo sa ilalim ng Patronahe ni San Carlos Borromeo, 1787. Nasira ng bagyo, 1872. Muling itinayo ni P. Cresencio Polo, O.P., 1873. Itinaas ng mga katipunero ang bandila  ng katipunan sa kampanaryo, 19 Setyembre 1898. Pinalitan ng bubong na yero, ika-20 siglo. Tinanggal ang koro, noong taong 1990. Ipinahayag ng Pambansang Museo bilang Yamang Pangkalinangan, 31 Hunyo 2001."

4. WHITE BEACH
This beach is sorrounded by towering rocks and has semi-white sand.



5. THE HOUSE OF DAKAY
Popular because it is the one of oldest house in Sabtang. Our guide told us that long time ago a strong earthquake hit the town and a lot of house was destroyed. This house was one of the few houses that remained standing and one of the 5 (as i remember) that is still standing as of today.  It is made of thick cogon grass as roof and  limestone walls that is almost a meter thick (i think so). Same as old structures, the kitchen and the comfort room has a separate structures.






6. IVANA CHURCH (San Jose de Obrero Church)
This church is located infront of Ivana Port. Across it is the famous Honesty Shop.

"Itinayo bilang kapilya, 1787. Ipinagawa ang simbahang bato ni P. Francisco de Paula Esteban, O.P., 1795; Ang kampanaryo ni P. Jose Fausto de Cuevas, O.P., 1814-1817. Pinaliit ang simbahan matapos limusan ang mga mamamayan ng Sabtang, 1844. Ipinaayos ang harapan ng simbahan ni F. Fabian Martin O.P., 1866-1869. Itinaas ng mga katipunero sa kampanaryo ng simbahan, 18 Setyembre 1898. Nasira ng lindol, 2000. Isinaayos ni P. Gumersindo Hernandez, O.P., 2001

7. ALAPAD HILL AND ROCK FORMATION
One of the best view in Batan and also one of the place where it is nice to sit back and relax and feel the wind on your face. This is also the famous spot where the movie "Hihintayin kita sa Langit" starring Dawn Zulueta adn Richard Gomez took place. Remember the "i-Dawn Zulueta mo ako" moment? This is the spot.






8. RACUH A PAYAMAN (Marlboro Country)
This is where our guide took us to have our lunch. The view is very, very beautiful. A 360-degree views of grassland where commercial animals can roam around.





View of the Diura fishing village

9. DIURA FISHING VILLAGE
Just a few minutes from Racuh A Payaman is the Diura Fishing Village. You have to pay Php20.00/head for tourism fee. There are houses that you can rent in case you want to spend a night here.




Dried Octopus

10. TAYID (MAHATAO) LIGHTHOUSE
Facing South China Sea, this one of the beautiful lighthouse is seen. From what I've read, during old times, it functions like the other ordinary lighthouses, but one thing that separates it from the others is that the ingenious means of guiding boats to the port during night. The boats from the sea follows a course where the 2 lighthouse signals though merging their lights as one. This would be the path in the sea that have no coral reefs. When the light of the 2 lighthouses separates, this means that the boat is going the wrong direction and in danger of running on the reefs or could possibly smash into huge rocks that scattered in the coastline of Batan.



Were back to our lodging late afternoon and spent the last day with the cool breeze of Batanes. Our flight back to Manila is early so we have to be there 2-3 hours before our flight. Got that advise from a friend coz the airport in Batanes doesn't have scanners like what other airports have. They have to weigh and check your bags manually one by one. Imagine how long would it take to finish one bag? Another factor is that by the time we arrive at the airport there is no electricity due to heavy rain.

A lot of people are having second thoughts coming here because most of the blogs emphasized the bumpy boat ride going to the island. And to tell you honestly, it really is. Curious, I search to where the island is located and found out that it is along Verde Pass. It is where the MV Princess of the Orient (Sulpicio Lines) sank.  I have a not-so-good experience passing there especially with a small boat. The current is very unpredictable.




And to make it worst, on our way to the island, our engine stop in the middle of the passage itself and we stayed for almost 30 minutes. I was getting a little worried because the waves are really picking up.  Some if our friends are starting to get very dizzy. It took us almost 2 hours. As we approach the island, you can already see the beautiful corals beneath. Imagine how clear the water is. And do you know that Verde Passage is "THE CENTER OF CENTER OF MARINE BIODIVERSITY" that's why marine life here is very, very, very beautiful. Once you set foot on the island, you'll notice the powdery white sand of the beach, the Grecian pillars and the statues and the replica of a sunken spanish warship.

White sand and clear water
The Grecian Pillars that are slowly deteriorating

Eventhough the resort and it's some of it's facilities are destroyed and considering the treacherous waves, it is still very attractive to many. The island has powdery white sand, the water are so clear that you can see the colorful corals. It is also one of the best spot to go snorkling and diving. Additional attractions are the Grecian Pillars and statues that make it look like your in Athens and the replica of the sunken spanish warship the "San Diego Dutch Warship" that they turn into a museum. The resort was owned by former Batangas Governor Tony Leviste and is now being manage by a korean. That why it is better to have contacts before you go to the island.

The destroyed pavilion and the helipad

The resort has no water and electricity so better prepare accordingly. Globe and Smart signals are present on the island. If your planning to do an overnight trip, you can pitch tent on the sand or took shelter on the pavilion where there are chairs and tables available and can be used.

Me with M.A.F.I.A.
Thanks for this trip

Due to lack of time, we never get to try the waters but I WILL HAVE MY REVENGE AND COME BACK WITH MY SNORKEL AND FLIPPERS ON!



HOW TO GET THERE:
  • Ride bus going to Nasugbu at Coastal Mall Terminal
  • Alight Nasugbu proper. There are tricycles available and can take you to the port.

NOTES:
  • Day tour at the island : Resort fee is Php 300.00/head and boat rental is Php 3000.00/10 persons.
  • Overnight tour : Resort fee is Php 450.00/head and boat rental is Php 6000.00/persons.
  • There are no stores in the island so better bring everything from potable water and food for day or overnight stay.
  • No water and electricity on the island. You can use the old comfort rooms to change clothes.
  • Leave the island early cause the waves are strong during noontime till afternoon.
  • Last trip of buses in Nasugbu is 8pm.
  • They don't offer tents so bring your own.
  • Don't forget to bring your snorkling gears.
  • Waves are strong even near the shore so be careful swimming cause there are pebbles and rocks.

          Day 1 Coron - Mt. Tapyas & Maquinit Hot Spring   
Coron Trip
November 29, 2013 - December 3, 2013

Sunset at Mt. Tapyas

At last after being delayed for 3 weeks because of Super typhoon Yolanda, we finally set foot at the town of Coron for a 4-day weekend get-away! We didn't expect much for as the news on tv said that the people of Coron are still struggling and rebuilding their hometown plus the landlady to where we're staying informed me that there are some spots that are damage. But were still curious on what will happen on our 4-day stay here.

For our first day, we head to the famous Coron landmark which is Mt. Tapyas. Raising 210 meters above sea level, it is the 2nd highest mountain in Coron. Overlooking the whole bay and the mountains sorrounding the island. It used to have a white cross standing on the top of the mountain that serves as a beacon but the wrath of the typhoon destroyed the whole place uprooting trees, bending metal posts, turn over gazebos and broke down the metal cross separating it from it concrete base.

handrails are also broken
Shed without the roof

bended electrical post

After a few clicks on our camera, we head down and went to Maquinit Hot Springs. About 30-40 minutes bumpy tricycle ride from Mt. Tapyas. What makes it unique from other hot springs are the salt water pools. I don't know exactly how did that happen. Entrance is Php150 for tourist. Be warned! the water is too damn hot when you dip for the first time. You have to make it gradually. Wear sandals because the bottom of the pool is a little rocky. It was already night time when we get there so I didn't get to see what the sorroundings look like. Only the Mangrove swamp near the pool which I think is a good spot in taking photos during day time.










          Comment on Transportation as a “Service” by Mark Bahner   
Hi, A lot of libertarian wisdom there. :-) "Don’t get me wrong, I love having my own car(s) and wouldn’t give them up, but it IS kind of sad that they spend most their time sitting around aging in the sun, not doing anything useful." Yes, consider that most cars spend more than 90% of the day parked. They're depreciating, the owner is paying for insurance on them, they require a garage or parking lot/parking deck, they need to be warmed up or cooled down to be comfortable on a cold or hot day, etc. Now imagine an autonomous vehicle...most likely full electric. It arrives when needed...no need for a garage or parking lot/parking deck on either end of the trip. Door-to-door service. It could easily do 60,000+ miles per year...500,000 miles in a lifetime. It always arrives warm on cold days or cool on hot days. No range anxiety, because the company providing the service makes sure the car has enough battery power left for the journey. No need to charge the car yourself. Finally, the car is perfectly suited to your needs. Just one person? Why not get a single-seat vehicle? "I see these upcoming services as a good thing, another set of options for people to choose from. Are they a springboard from which control freaks may try to force us to give up private automobiles? Of course, but that’s a reason to denigrate the control freaks, not the new options." Yes, haters gonna hate. Control freaks gonna try to control. Maybe most people on this site don't know about it (yet) but concern about not being able to drive is a huge issue for people who are elderly. Not to mention people who are blind or otherwise can't drive cars. And then there are kids/young teens. Transportation as a service provides *more* options. There's no legitimate reason why there could not also be individual ownership for those wanting to pay the likely higher expense per mile traveled.

You have to keep in mind how cars are made now too. Things are so integrated, especially with computer controls. It often costs more to keep a stripped down car in the lineup, then to just install something on every car. For example electric windows vs a simple crank. It's literally cheaper for each car coming down the line to have electric windows installed then to keep two different kinds.

          Iraq: New Abuse, Execution Reports of Men Fleeing Mosul   

A member of Iraqi security forces stands on the turret of an armoured vehicle along a highway near west of Mosul, Iraq, June 22, 2017.

(Beirut) – Allegations are emerging of Iraqi forces beating and unlawfully killing men and boys fleeing Mosul in the final phase of the battle against the Islamic State (also known as ISIS), Human Rights Watch said today.

Four witnesses told Human Rights Watch that they saw Iraqi forces beat unarmed men and boys fleeing the fighting within the last seven days, and said they also obtained information about Iraqi forces executing unarmed men during this time period.

“As Iraqi forces are poised to retake the entire city of Mosul, allegations of unlawful killings and beatings significantly raise concerns for the civilians there who have been living under ISIS control,” said Lama Fakih, deputy Middle East director at Human Rights Watch. “Iraqi forces are promising liberation, but they need to find out what’s happening now and stop any abuse.”

One witness said that three Emergency Response Division and Iraqi Security Force (ISF) members on a key route for civilians fleeing the city boasted to him that they were executing captured unarmed men who were thought to be ISIS-affiliated instead of detaining them. The Emergency Response Division and ISF fighters, stationed three kilometers from the heaviest fighting in the Old City, said they made an exception for elderly men, the witness said.

Two other witnesses said they saw Iraqi uniformed soldiers pick at least six men and boys out of crowds of fleeing civilians at a checkpoint, beat them, and drive them away. They said they saw soldiers pick out another man, beat him, and then move him into a building they were using as a base. One of the witnesses said that soldiers later said they had killed him.

“I have heard of countless abuses and executions in this battle,” one witness said. “But what’s changed is that in this final phase fighters are no longer hiding what they are doing and are comfortable allowing us to witness the abuses first-hand.”

The same witness said that earlier this week, he heard three screams coming from a building being used by the elite Counter Terrorism Service (CTS), after which fighters from the unit ushered him away. That afternoon in another neighborhood of west Mosul, the witness saw two CTS fighters take down the corpse of an alleged ISIS fighter that had been strung up to an electrical pole, and stone the body before taking a few photos of each other posing with it.

That night, he said, a CTS fighter also showed him a video of a severely beaten man who the fighter said was an ISIS prisoner. In the video the CTS fighter shoots and kills the unarmed detainee, he said.

In the days before, the man said he saw five Iraqi soldiers at a checkpoint pick out at least 10 men over a period of an hour, beat them, and drag them toward a building the soldiers were using as a base. He said that one of the men the soldiers were beating was wounded and that he had arrived with his family from a front-line field hospital. The witness said that as he was leaving the area he saw the soldiers single out more and more men, beat them and take them away, but lost count of how many.

An article published in a Swedish outlet on June 28, 2017, by a Swedish journalist who was on the front-line says that a Federal Police officer boasted about decapitating at least 50 men with knives and beating others, with fellow officers watching, cheering, and sometimes filming. The article said the Federal Police backed up these claims with photos and videos.

Throughout the operation to retake Mosul, Human Rights Watch has documented Iraqi forces detaining and holding thousands of men and boys in inhumane conditions without charge, and in some cases torturing and executing them, under the guise of a screening them for ISIS-affiliation. In May 2016, Iraqi forces retook the city of Fallujah from ISIS, but in the operation committed horrific abuses, including executions, torture, and the disappearance of over 600 men whose bodies have yet to be found.

Human Rights Watch has raised concerns regarding allegations of ill-treatment, torture, and executions numerous times in meetings with Iraqi officials in Baghdad as well as with representatives from US-led coalition member countries. Human Rights Watch does not know of a single transparent investigation into abuses by Iraqi armed forces, any instances of commanders being held accountable for abuse, or any victims of abuse receiving compensation.

Iraqi criminal justice authorities should investigate all alleged crimes, including unlawful killings and mutilation of corpses, committed by any party in the conflict in a prompt, transparent, and effective manner, up to the highest levels of responsibility. Those found criminally responsible should be appropriately prosecuted. Extrajudicial executions and torture during an armed conflict are war crimes. Despoiling dead bodies and other outrages on personal dignity are violations of the laws of armed conflict and may amount to war crimes.

“Reports of unlawful executions and beatings by Iraqi soldiers should be enough to raise concern among the highest ranks in Baghdad and among members of the international coalition combatting ISIS,” Fakih said. “Iraqi officials should translate that concern into accountability for war crimes.”

          CSI-EPT in Presence of RF-Shield for MR-Coils   
Contrast source inversion electric properties tomography (CSI-EPT) is a recently developed technique for the electric properties tomography that recovers the electric properties distribution starting from measurements performed by magnetic resonance imaging scanners. This method is an optimal control approach based on the contrast source inversion technique, which distinguishes itself from other electric properties tomography techniques for its capability to recover also the local specific absorption rate distribution, essential for online dosimetry. Up to now, CSI-EPT has only been described in terms of integral equations, limiting its applicability to homogeneous unbounded background. In order to extend the method to the presence of a shield in the domain—as in the recurring case of shielded radio frequency coils—a more general formulation of CSI-EPT, based on a functional viewpoint, is introduced here. Two different implementations of CSI-EPT are proposed for a 2-D transverse magnetic model problem, one dealing with an unbounded domain and one considering the presence of a perfectly conductive shield. The two implementations are applied on the same virtual measurements obtained by numerically simulating a shielded radio frequency coil. The results are compared in terms of both electric properties recovery and local specific absorption rate estimate, in order to investigate the requirement of an accurate modeling of the underlying physical problem.

          Back-Projection Cortical Potential Imaging: Theory and Results   
Electroencephalography (EEG) is the single brain monitoring technique that is non-invasive, portable, passive, exhibits high-temporal resolution, and gives a directmeasurement of the scalp electrical potential. Amajor disadvantage of the EEG is its low-spatial resolution, which is the result of the low-conductive skull that “smears” the currents coming from within the brain. Recording brain activity with both high temporal and spatial resolution is crucial for the localization of confined brain activations and the study of brainmechanismfunctionality, whichis then followed by diagnosis of brain-related diseases. In this paper, a new cortical potential imaging (CPI) method is presented. The new method gives an estimation of the electrical activity on the cortex surface and thus removes the “smearing effect” caused by the skull. The scalp potentials are back-projected CPI (BP-CPI) onto the cortex surface by building a well-posed problem to the Laplace equation that is solved by means of the finite elements method on a realistic head model. A unique solution to the CPI problem is obtained by introducing a cortical normal current estimation technique. The technique is based on the same mechanism used in the well-known surface Laplacian calculation, followed by a scalp-cortex back-projection routine. The BP-CPI passed four stages of validation, including validation on spherical and realistic head models, probabilistic analysis (Monte Carlo simulation), and noise sensitivity tests. In addition, the BP-CPI was compared with the minimum norm estimate CPI approach and found superior for multi-source cortical potential distributions with very good estimation results (CC >0.97) on a realistic head model in the regions of interest, for two representative cases. The BP-CPI can be easily incorporated in different monitoring tools and help researchers by maintaining an accurate estimati- n for the cortical potential of ongoing or event-related potentials in order to have better neurological inferences from the EEG.

          Filmmaker Explores “Normal” Life as HIV-Positive Man from the Midwest   
This summer, a documentary filmmaker from Normal, Illinois, got in touch with GLAAD to help with media relations around the World AIDS Day premiere of his documentary, "Electric City-Far from Normal." The filmmaker, Dennis Neal Vaughn, tells his story in the autobiographical short film. The film follows Vaughn as he journeys from a small-town boy from the rural Midwest, to a gay man coming to terms with his own HIV diagnosis and moving across the country to San Francisco. Dennis and "Electric City-Far from Normal" have been receiving media attention back in Normal, and beyond. Today an interview with Dennis will run three times on the local Central Illinois NPR affiliate. The movie's premiere tonight will be followed by a candlelight vigil to commemorate Worlds AIDS Day. All proceeds from the film will go to local HIV/AIDS service organizations, the majority of which are located in central Illinois.

          How to beat Vaporeon in Pokemon Go?   




How to beat Vaporeon in Pokemon Go?

Vaporeon is both common and powerful making him one of the popular Gym Battle Pokemon's.  Many believe that Vaporeon is overpowered especially given how common Eevee is.  This is likely due to speed being less of a parameter in Pokemon Go!  This leads Pokemon like Vaporeon who have a large amount of hit points and have strong attacks to take over quickly.

That said no Pokemon is unbeatable and the trick with beating powerful Pokemon is to find the right Type against them.

so with that said!

HOW TO BEAT VAPOREON!
BEST POKEMON VS VAPOREON!

The trick with Vaporeon and all WATER type pokemon is to use a GRASS Pokemon.  GRASS  Pokemon have a defensive and offensive advantage against water Pokemon making them by far the best to take them on. In previous games WATER attacks were cut in half when used against a GRASS Pokemon and the effect of GRASS  Attacks were DOUBLED!!!

Which GRASS  Pokemon to use?

You want to know why Vaporeon is sitting on top of so many gyms look no further than how rare and unpopular the GRASS  Pokemon.   Which one do you build?  Any one you can.  I have seen a variety of Water Pokemon doing very well in Pokemon Go and I think it has to do with how few built up Grass Pokemon there are.



Make sure you pick a Grass Pokemon that also has GRASS Attacks.  This gives the Pokemon advantages in both attacking and defending.   This will make it extremely competitive against Vaporeon.


Parasect with Solar Beam


My favorite and efficient killer of Vaporeon is Parasect.  Parasect is a GRASS / BUG hybrid and one of his combo moves if you get it is Solar Beam.  Solar Beam packs a whooping 120 damage in Grass type.  A CP 800 can take out a C) 1500 Vaporeon provided it has solar beam.
I will also mention that a Parasect with all bug moves is still worth keeping as it can take down another common defender Exeggcutor.

The best part of Parasect is that it is an evolution of Paras that is a common Pokemon so evolving a Parasect or even multiple Parasect's is not too hard.

My only warning is that Parasect has many weakness particularly to flying Pokemon so leaving him as a gym defender himself may not be the idea.  Though he could likely surprise many a trainer who attacks with a Vaporeon.



Electric Pokemon like Jolteon!
Another good way to take down Vaporeon is with evolutionary cousin Jolteon.  Jolteon's ELECTRIC attacks are super effective against WATER Pokemon.  That is right ELECTRIC attacks work well against WATER pokemon.  They just don't get the defensive bonus that the GRASS pokemon have.
Add in the other ELECTRIC type of Pokemon in here for good measure like fan favorite Pikachu / Raichu.

          Winter, Winter go away........   
Diabetes can't really get me down, but adding onto diabetes with little things that aren't so great has got me down a little. I went to the doc yesterday and he told me something I already knew but haven't really put much thought into it. He told me I have something called Right Bundle Branch Block. Strange name....it's when the wiring in the heart is just a little different. The "electrical currents" take a different route than they normally should. He didn't want to tell me not because it's bad but because it is nothing to worry about at all and a normal healthy heart can have it as well. Soooo......I'm not worrying about it...or am I? I am a little. He is scheduling me for an ultrasoud of the heart and a stress test just to rule anything out. That's good. I don't have symptoms of anything and I only went to the cardiologist because my heart seems to have this sensation of beating really hard, especially at night. Not skipping beats or irregular or anything, just hard.

And then my husband has been home from work for the last week (thank goodness for Aflac), because he had an episode of losing vision for a split second and then a headache and dizziness. The dizziness hasn't gone away and that is why he has been home. He has been getting a bunch of different tests done from MRI's to a Carotid Artery Test. The MRI and Cat Scan have come back fine so that is good. His mom is recovering from a double bypass in a nursing home that she calls dispicable. In my opinion, any nursing home is not great but she will only be there for a week and she is doing good. Does winter bring out all the illnesses, not to mention the lazies?

I can finally see our driveway which has been hidden away under all the ice and snow. I can't wait to see the grass! With all of this going on, my sugar levels have actually been pretty good.

So, with all due respect, winter.......could you just go away?

          Spitfire Audio Union Chapel Organ KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX | 7.26 GB |   
Spitfire Audio Union Chapel Organ KONTAKT-MAGNETRiXX TEAM MAGNETRiXX | 13 June 2017 | 7.26 GB A legendary Organ built by the master Henry Willis, in a legendary London venue; the beautiful Union Chapel. From angelic soft delicacies to roaring thunder, this instrument is one of the finest examples of 19th Century craftsmanship in the world, and gives you a Symphonic Orchestra of tones at your fingertips. The Organ at London's Union Chapel was built by Henry 'Father' Willis in 1877 specifically to match the size and acoustics of the building and is undoubtedly one of the finest in the world. Henry Willis who is regarded as the foremost organ builder of the Victorian era also built the organs at the Royal Albert Hall and St Paul's Cathedral. The Union Chapel Organ remains essentially unaltered. The only significant changes have been the replacement of the Choir Gemshorn 4ft by a 2ft Piccolo in 1909, the provision of electric blowing in the 1920s, and the installation of a balanced swell pedal in the 1940s. As an important example of 'Father' Willis's work, in 2012-13 the organ was fully restored by organ builders Harrison & Harrison based on historic principles. The original hydraulic blowing engines (water powered) have also been restored to working order by James Richardson-Jones and are retained as an alternative to electric blowing (one of very few left in the world!). It has three manuals, Swell, Great, Choir, and a full pedalboard. Since the restoration Union Chapel have been running a diverse concert programme around the organ including a brand new experimental organ festival launching in 2016. These concerts of all genres continually demonstrate how versatile the organ can be and that it is not simply a church instrument, but in fact the world's first synthesiser which can be incorporated into most genres of music. For more information on their programme please visit www.unionchapel.org.uk The chapel itself has a beautiful acoustic and has hosted artists such as Nils Lofgren, Ray Davies, Beck, Suzanne Vega, Nitin Sawhney, Ryan Adams, Lady Antebellum, Elton John, Ellie Goulding, Chris Martin, James Morrison, Amy Winehouse, David Byrne, Tori Amos, Bjork. BACKGROUND Spitfire co-founder Paul Thomson grew up sat on the organ stool. From playing in churches before he could reach the pedal board, to practicing at night locked alone in Worcester Cathedral as a teenager, he has always had a soft spot in his heart for this instrument. So after finding the perfect organ to sample this became a pet project. The organ is like an orchestra, from charming flutes to trumpets and trombones, with many interesting harmonic mixtures and options for voicing. You can set up different sounds on the manuals and pass from one to another, or combine them for a greatly amplified sound character. "The humble organist can have an orchestra of a thousand voices" - Marie Alain Paul and his colleagues at Spitfire waited a long time before selecting the organ they wanted to sample, and the timing was perfect with the restoration and the collaboration with the Union Chapel. They started the project back in 2013 and many hours were spent during the night recording! This instrument has bags of character and can go from extraordinarily soft and delicate to full thunder and power while never sounding slightly synthetic or brittle like some of the later instruments. As an instrument, the pipe organ has featured in many films and on many albums over the years, a sampling includes most recently Interstellar, Rollerball, 2001 A Space Odyssey, many of Danny Elfman's scores including his two Batman offerings, Koyaanisqatsi, The Omega Man, Interview With a Vampire, Patton and The Godfather. As a bonus feature Spitfire's team of sound designers have created 10 eDNA presets using the raw materials of the Organ, which have most recently featured in the 2016 Paul Feig reboot of Ghostbusters, plus a Dev Kit for the user to create their own unique Synths, Basses, Atmospheres and Rhythmic pulsing patches. GUIS THE OVERVIEW PANEL Gives you a quick and easy way to access, view and load the different articulations, mic mixes and essential controller functions which you can then re-assign to suit your workflow. GENERAL CONTROLS PANEL A deeper but still simple UI panel that allows you to tweak the general settings. How many round robins you would like and how you would like them to behave. How would you like memory to be organised alongside pitch options and how velocity works. home page: http://bit.ly/2rruKvL DOWNLOAD: http://nitroflare.com/view/542FD98A8698F08/Chapel.Organ.part1.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/943CCF255E71A05/Chapel.Organ.part2.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/5B191984349C20A/Chapel.Organ.part3.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/BAB67D61C642C0B/Chapel.Organ.part4.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/1138D03F0735646/Chapel.Organ.part5.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/91FF7F3F124BB93/Chapel.Organ.part6.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/BBF7A1D2619956C/Chapel.Organ.part7.rar http://nitroflare.com/view/4BD2247FB9A3781/Chapel.Organ.part8.rar

          Top 10 discoveries about waves    

Gravitational radiation reminds science of its debts to the physics of waves

Context
surfer on a wave

CATCH A WAVE Physicists are the surfers of science, with a long history of fascination with waves.

Physics fans are a lot like surfers. Both think waves are really fun.

For surfers, it’s all about having a good time. For physicists, it’s about understanding some of nature’s most important physical phenomena. Yet another detection of gravitational waves, announced June 1, further reinvigorates the world’s science fans’ excitement over waves.

Waves have naturally always been a topic of scientific and mathematical interest. They play a part in an enormous range of physical processes, from heat and light to radio and TV, sonograms and music, earthquakes and holograms. (Waves used to even be a common sight in baseball stadiums, but fans got tired of standing up and down and it was really annoying anyway.)

Many of science’s greatest achievements have been discoveries of new kinds of waves or new insights into wave motion. Identifying just the Top 10 such discoveries (or ideas) is therefore difficult and bound to elicit critical comments from cult members of particular secret wave societies. So remember, if your favorite wave isn’t on this list, it would have been No. 11.

10.  Thomas Young: Light is a wave.

In the opening years of the 19th century, the English physician Young tackled a long-running controversy about the nature of light. A century earlier, Isaac Newton had argued forcibly for the view that light consisted of (very small) particles. Newton’s contemporary Christiaan Huygens strongly disagreed, insisting that light traveled through space as a wave.

Through a series of clever experiments, Young demonstrated strong evidence for waves. Poking two tiny holes in a thick sheet of paper, Young saw that light passing through created alternating bands of light and darkness on a surface placed on the other side of the paper. That was just as expected if light passing through the two holes interfered just as water waves do, canceling out when crest met trough or enhancing when crests met “in phase.” Young did not work out his wave theory with mathematical rigor and so Newton’s defenders resisted, attempting to explain away Young’s results.

But soon Augustin Jean Fresnel in France worked out the math of light waves in detail. And in 1850, when Jean-Bernard-Léon Foucault showed that light travels faster in air than water, the staunchest Newton fans had to capitulate. Newton himself would have acknowledged that light must therefore consist of waves. (Much later, though, Einstein found a way that light could in fact consist of particles, which came to be called photons.)

9. Michelson and Morley: Light waves don’t vibrate anything.

Waves are vibrations, implying the need for something to vibrate. Sound vibrated molecules in the air, for instance, and ocean waves vibrated molecules of water. Light, supposedly, vibrated an invisible substance called the ether.

In 1887, Albert A. Michelson and his collaborator Edward Morley devised an experiment to detect that ether. Earth’s motion through the ether should have meant that light’s velocity would depend on its direction. (Traveling with the Earth’s motion, light’s speed wouldn’t be the same as traveling at right angles to the direction of motion.) Michelson and Morley figured they could detect that difference by exploiting the interference phenomena discovered by Young. But their apparatus failed to find any ether effect. They thought their experiment was flawed. But later Einstein figured out there actually wasn’t any ether.

8. James Clerk Maxwell: Light is an electromagnetic wave.

Maxwell died in 1879, the year Einstein was born, and so did not know there wasn’t an ether. He did figure out, though, that both electricity and magnetism could be explained by stresses in some such medium.

Electric and magnetic charges in the ether ought to generate disturbances in the form of waves, Maxwell realized. Based on the strengths of those forces he calculated that the waves would travel at the fantastic speed of 310 million meters per second, suspiciously close to the best recent measurements of the speed of light (those measurements ranged from 298 million to 315 million meters per second). So Maxwell, without the benefit of ever having watched NCIS on TV, then invoked Gibbs’ Rule 39 (there’s no such thing as a coincidence) and concluded that light was an example of an electromagnetic wave.

“It seems we have strong reason to conclude that light itself (including radiant heat, and other radiations if any) is an electromagnetic disturbance in the form of waves propagated through the electromagnetic field,” he wrote in 1864. His “other radiations, if any” turned out to be an entire spectrum of all sorts of cool waves, from gamma radiation to radio signals.

7. Heinrich Hertz: Radio waves.

Not very many people took Maxwell seriously at first. A few, though, known as the Maxwellians, promoted his ideas. One physicist who had faith in Maxwell, or at least in his equations, was Hertz, who performed experiments in his lab in Karlsruhe, Germany, that successfully produced and detected radio waves, eventually to be exploited by propagandists to spread a lot of illogical nonsense on talk radio.

His success inspired much more respect for the equations in Maxwell’s theory, which Hertz found almost magical: “It is impossible to study this wonderful theory without feeling as if the mathematical equations had an independent life and an intelligence of their own, as if they were wiser than ourselves,” Hertz said. His prime experimental success came in 1887, the same year that Michelson and Morley failed to detect the ether. Hertz died in 1894, long before his discovery was put to widespread use.

6. John Michell: Seismic waves.

Michell, an English geologist and astronomer, was motivated by the great Lisbon earthquake of 1755 to investigate the cause of earthquakes. In 1760 he concluded that “subterraneous fires” should be blamed, noting that volcanoes — “burning mountains” — commonly occur in the same neighborhood as frequent earthquakes.

Michell noted that “the motion of the earth in earthquakes is … partly propagated by waves, which succeed one another sometimes at larger and sometimes at smaller distances.” He cited witness accounts of quakes in which the ground rose “like the sea in a wave.” Much later seismologists developed a more precise understanding of the seismic waves that shake the Earth, using them as probes to infer the planet’s inner structure.

5. Wilhelm Röntgen: X-rays.

Roentgen's first x-ray of his wife's handWhen Hertz discovered radio waves, he knew he was looking for the long-wavelength radiation foreshadowed in Maxwell’s equations. But a few years later, in 1895, Röntgen found the radio wave counterpart of the opposite end of the electromagnetic spectrum — by accident.

Mysterious short-wavelength rays of an unknown type (therefore designated X) emerged when Röntgen shot cathode rays (beams of electrons) through a glass tube. Röntgen suspected that his creation might be a new kind of wave among the many Maxwell had anticipated: “There seems to exist some kind of relationship between the new rays and light rays; at least this is indicated by the formation of shadows,” Röntgen wrote. Those shadows, of course, became the basis for a revolutionary medical technology.

Besides providing a major new tool for observing shattered bones and other structures inside the body, X-rays eventually became essential tools for scientific investigation in astronomy, biology and other fields. And they shattered the late 19th century complacency of physicists who thought they’d basically figured everything out about nature. Weirdly, though, X-rays later turned out to be particles sometimes, validating Einstein’s ideas that light had an alter ego particle identity. (By the way, it turned out that X-rays aren’t the electromagnetic waves with the shortest wavelengths — gamma rays can be even shorter. Maybe they would be No. 11.)

4. Epicurus: The swerve.

Not exactly a wave in the ordinary sense, the swerve was a deviation from straight line motion postulated by the Greek philosopher Epicurus around 300 B.C. Unlike Aristotle, Epicurus believed in atoms, and argued that reality was built entirely from the random collisions of an infinite number of those tiny particles. Supposedly, he thought, atoms would all just fall straight down to the center of the universe unless some unpredictable “swerve” occasionally caused them to deviate from their paths so they would bounce off each other and congregate into complex structures.

It has not escaped the attention of modern philosophers that the Epicurean unpredictable swerve is a bit like the uncertainty in particle motions introduced by quantum mechanics. Which has its own waves. 

3. Louis de Broglie: Matter waves.

In the early 1920s, de Broglie noticed a peculiar connection between relativity and quantum physics. Max Planck’s famous quantum formula related energy to frequency of a wave motion. Einstein’s special relativity related energy to the mass of a particle. De Broglie thought it would make a fine doctoral dissertation to work out the implications of two seemingly separate things both related to energy. If energy equals mass (times the speed of light squared) and energy equals frequency (time Planck’s constant), then voilà, mass equals frequency (times some combination of the constants). Therefore, de Broglie reasoned, particles (of mass) ought to also exist as waves (with a frequency).

That might have seemed wacky, but Einstein read de Broglie’s thesis and thought it made sense. Soon Walter Elsasser in Germany reported experiments that supported de Broglie, and in America Clinton Davisson and coworkers demonstrated conclusively that electrons did in fact exhibit wave properties.

De Broglie won the physics Nobel Prize in 1929; Davisson shared the 1937 Nobel with George Thomson, who had conducted similar experiments showing electrons are waves. Which was ironic, because George’s father, J.J. Thomson, won the 1906 Nobel for the work that revealed the existence of the electron as a particle. Eight decades later Ernst Ruska won a Nobel for his design of a powerful microscope that exploited the electron’s wave behavior.

2. Max Born: Probability waves.

De Broglie’s idea ignited a flurry of activity among physicists trying to figure out how waves fit into quantum theory. Niels Bohr, for instance, spent considerable effort attempting to reconcile the dual wave-particle nature of both electrons and light. Erwin Schrödinger, meanwhile, developed a full-fledged “wave mechanics” to describe the behavior of electrons in atoms solely from the wave perspective. Schrödinger’s math incorporated a “wave function” that was great for calculating the expected results of experiments, even though some experiments clearly showed electrons to be particles.

Born, a German physicist and good friend of Einstein’s, deduced the key to clarifying the wave function: It was an indicator of the probability of finding the particle in a given location. Combined with Werner Heisenberg’s brand-new uncertainty principle, Born’s realization led to the modern view that an electron is wavelike in the sense that it does not possess a definite location until it is observed. That approach works fine for all practical purposes, but physicists and philosophers still engage in vigorous debates today about the true physical status of the wave function.

1. LIGO: Gravitational waves.

graph of gravitational wave detectionSoon after he completed his general theory of relativity, Einstein realized that it implied the possibility of gravitational radiation — vibrations of spacetime itself.  He had no idea, though, that by spending a billion dollars, physicists a century later could actually detect those spacetime ripples. But thanks to lasers (which maybe would have been No. 11), the Laser Interferometer Gravitational-Wave Observatory — two huge labs in Louisiana and Washington state — captured the spacetime shudders emitted from a pair of colliding black holes in September 2015.

That detection is certainly one of the most phenomenal experimental achievements in the history of science. It signaled a new era in astronomy, providing astronomers a tool for probing the depths of the universe that are obscured from view with Maxwell’s “other radiations, if any.” For astronomy, gravitational radiation is the wave of the future.

          Why quantum mechanics might need an overhaul   

Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg says current debates suggest need for new approach to comprehend reality

Context
Steven Weinberg

Nobel laureate Steven Weinberg, a physicist at the University of Texas at Austin, was once happy with quantum mechanics. But now he thinks that some more general theory may be needed to resolve long-standing disputes about the meaning of quantum mechanical math.

SAN ANTONIO — Quantum mechanics is science’s equivalent of political polarization.

Voters either take sides and argue with each other endlessly, or stay home and accept politics as it is. Physicists either just accept quantum mechanics and do their calculations, or take sides in the never-ending debate over what quantum mechanics is actually saying about reality.

Steven Weinberg used to be happy with quantum mechanics as it is and didn’t worry about the debates. But as he has thought about it over the years, the 83-year-old Nobel laureate has reassessed.

“Now I’m not so sure,” he declared October 30 in San Antonio at a session for science writers organized by the Council for the Advancement of Science Writing. (Disclosure: I am a member of the CASW board.) “I’m not as happy about quantum mechanics as I used to be, and not as dismissive of its critics.”

One reason Weinberg thinks there’s a need for a new chapter in the quantum story is that those who think everything is fine with quantum mechanics take different sides in the debates about it.

“It’s a bad sign in particular that those physicists who are happy about quantum mechanics, and see nothing wrong with it, don’t agree with each other about what it means,” Weinberg says.

Quantum mechanics stirred up consternation from its beginnings. More than a century ago, physicists such as Max Planck, Albert Einstein and Niels Bohr showed that standard 19th century physics was inadequate for explaining various features of heat, light and atoms. By the 1920s, other physicists, including Werner Heisenberg, Erwin Schrödinger, Paul Dirac and Max Born, developed those early realizations into the full-fledged quantum mechanical math that today lies at the foundation of physical understanding of just about everything. Quantum mechanics, Weinberg noted, is the “basis of our understanding of not only atoms, but also atomic nuclei, electrical conduction, magnetism, electromagnetic radiation, semiconductors, superconductors, white dwarf stars, neutron stars, nuclear forces and elementary particles.”

But quantum theory’s explanatory power has come at a substantial price: the need to accept counterintuitive weirdness about reality that many physicists, including such pioneers as Einstein and Schrödinger, refused to accept.

One such objectionable aspect was the quantum rejection of Newtonian determinism, the belief that all events are fully determined by preceding circumstances. You can calculate exactly where a baseball will land, for instance, if you know its velocity and direction when it gets hit by a bat. Quantum mechanics, to the contrary, imposes a probabilistic element into the description of natural processes. When an electron bounces off an atom, no one can predict exactly which direction the electron will go; quantum mechanics just permits you to calculate the odds that it will go one direction or another. A mathematical formula called the wave function provides the instructions for calculating where an electron is likely to be — when you make a measurement of the electron, you are most likely to find it where its probability wave is most intense. Repeated measurements would find a range of results corresponding to the probabilities that the quantum math specifies.

Einstein objected, saying God does not play dice. He further objected to another weird aspect of quantum mechanics, involving its description of pairs of particles separated at birth. Two photons emerging from a single atom, for instance, could fly very far apart yet share a single quantum description; making a measurement on one can reveal something about the other, no matter how far away it is.

Attempts to explain these conundrums fall into two broad categories, Weinberg said: “instrumentalist” and “realist.” Instrumentalists contend that the wave function is merely a tool for calculating the results of experiments — there’s no way to know anything more about reality. Devotees of the realist approach contend that the wave function is a real thing out in the world, evolving over time, and at a fundamental level it is responsible for what’s really happening.

Weinberg finds the instrumentalist view unattractive. It’s “so ugly to imagine that we have no knowledge of anything out there — we can only say what happens when we make a measurement,” he says. “The instrumentalist approach takes the attitude that we just don’t know what’s going on out there.”

On the other hand, the realist view does say what’s going on “out there,” but at the cost of enormous complexity, in the form of a countless number of independent streams of reality. “What’s going on out there is a wave function that is progressing with time in a perfectly deterministic but incredibly complicated way,” Weinberg says. In this view, all possible outcomes of quantum processes (that is, everything) come to pass in one stream or another (even though nobody is aware of any of the other streams, or “histories”).

Weinberg would prefer a reality with one history. But apart from that preference, the realist approach does not explain why measurement results observe the rules of quantum probabilities. If everything actually does happen in the various histories, there seems to be no reason why the quantum rules for probability would apply inside any one stream.

So Weinberg thinks there might be something beyond quantum mechanics, a deeper theory that introduces probabilities at a fundamental level, rather than requiring a human to make measurements to get the probabilities to show up. And there is a line of research attempting to generalize quantum mechanics along those lines. But so far a compelling theory that succeeds in generalizing quantum mechanics does not exist.

Perhaps a replacement for today’s quantum theory will come together any time now. Or perhaps not. “Maybe it’s just the way we express the theory is bad,” Weinberg says, “and the theory itself is right.”

Or possibly a surprise is in store.

“There’s always a third possibility,” Weinberg said, “that’s there’s something else entirely, that we’re going to have a revolution in science which is as much of a break with the past as quantum mechanics is a break from classical physics. That’s a possibility. It may be that a paper from a graduate student tomorrow morning will lay it out. By definition I don’t know what that would be.”

In any case, Weinberg observed, there’s a danger in evaluating any theory in terms of contemporary philosophical prejudices. Newtonian gravity, Weinberg noted, was itself regarded as unacceptable by many scientists of his era.

“Newton’s theory … seemed unpalatable to his contemporaries,” Weinberg said. Newtonian gravity was action at a distance, with no tangible pushing or pulling guiding the planets in their orbits. That “seemed like the introduction of an occult element into science, and was rejected for that reason by the followers of Descartes,” Weinberg said. Furthermore, “the force of gravitation was something that couldn’t be deduced from fundamental philosophical considerations and was rejected in part for that reason by the followers of Leibniz.” And Newton also did away with the dreams of Kepler and others to deduce the size of planetary orbits from fundamental principles.

Yet over time, Newton’s theory compiled an impressive list of successes (much like quantum mechanics has).

“By the end of the 18th century, it was perfectly clear to everyone that Newton’s theory was correct, or at least a spectacularly successful approximation,” Weinberg said. “We can take the lesson that it’s not really a good idea to hold new physical theories too strictly up to some preexisting philosophical standard. We have to go with it and see where it takes us — and see whether or not perhaps we have to change our philosophical standards.”

          Hardly a 'hit piece'   
State auditors find disturbing practices at Delta College

By The Record
November 16, 2008 6:00 AM

In the words of a San Joaquin Delta College spokesman: "It's a hit piece."

More precisely, a politically motivated hit piece, according to spokesman Greg Greenwood, reacting to yet another highly critical assessment of how the college has handled the $250 million bond approved four years ago.

And our response: So?

Who cares if the audit was politically motivated (it came at the urging of state Sen. Michael Machado, D-Linden)? What district taxpayers should care about is what state auditors say they found. And they found plenty, just like county grand jurors did last summer.

In pushing Measure L, Delta officials made pie-in-the-sky promises about satellite campuses and sprucing up the main campus. What did college officials do? They built athletic fields and bought electronic message boards - check them out the next time to drive by the campus on Pershing or Pacific avenues - instead of fixing leaking roofs, faulty electrical wiring, upgrading existing buildings or building new ones.

The excuse offered up earlier by Delta President Raul Rodriguez: "It was important for people to see the visual results of bond spending."

Huh? Really? They didn't even start pushing dirt around for the new athletic facilities until last year, three years after Measure L was passed. And the idea that most district voters associate improving higher education at a community college by building athletic fields is absurd on its face.

To most people, especially those who for years will be paying off the $250 million bonds, what comes to mind are things like biology labs and classrooms and updated library facilities and more classes available to the far-flung reaches of the college district.

There's not a lot to show for $250 million, not a lot of "visual results".

State Controller's Office auditors did find that in addition to spending millions on athletic fields and message boards, the college also spent $283,382 in bond on a new financial information system that included sending college staffers to 18 campuses around the nation.

Only later were those expenses shifted out of the bond account and to the college's general account.

"Not one penny has been charged to the bond," Greenwood said, adding that there has been "an enormous amount of scrutiny on this (bond) money."

Not everyone agrees, especially state auditors who called the Citizens Oversight Committee "passive, perfunctory and ineffective." At least one member of that panel argues that auditors didn't understand the committee's job, and besides its authority is limited by state law.

And the question that statement begs is: if true, why have an oversight committee?

College officials promised a point-by-point rebuttal to the audit, and last week the 10-page answer was sent to Jeffrey V. Brownfield, the chief of the division of audits in the Controller's Office.

The college's response was somewhat similar to its answer to the blistering grand jury report last summer.

Among other things, jurors said the college had essentially lost about $30 million in bond money on its Mountain House campus project in the south county by delays and plain old bad decisions.

The district's answer to jurors: yeah, we could have done better.

The district's answer to state auditors: on five specific points auditors raised, the college disagreed with four, and agreed with one (that the college could have done better retaining oversight committee members).

The college awaits the auditors' final report, to which the district rebuttal will be attached.

Before that, college officials will face Dr. Brian King, head of the recent accreditation team that visited Delta College earlier and placed the college on warning status. He will be at Delta on Monday for a follow-up and plans a public town hall meeting in the Tillie Lewis Theatre at 3 p.m.

Accreditation is imperative. Without it Delta College becomes a high school with fees. Students wanting to transfer to four year colleges will have more trouble.

This storm of reports and continued controversy goes a long way toward explaining why two long-term trustees did not seek re-election Nov. 4 year and two others were thrown out of office by voters.

A new board majority is promising a new attitude, more oversight of the taxpayers' money and more engagement with district residents.

No matter how energetic this new crop of trustees they can't get back the millions squandered and the time wasted.

They can set in motion the actions to see that things change, that it doesn't happen again.

          Nokia le roba a Samsung uno de sus CEOs: Gregory Lee se pasa al bando finlandés    

Gregory Lee

Nokia va poco a poco resurgiendo de sus cenizas, como un ave Fénix finlandés, y aunque no sea ya el gigante que conquistó el mundo de los teléfonos móviles sino algo reinventado, su marca sigue teniendo mucho peso en el sector. Poco a poco, y con el apoyo de Android como sistema operativo, Nokia vuelve a hacerse un hueco y parece que su estrategia de crecimiento pasa también por fichar talentos de otras compañías.

Es por ello que desde Nokia se ha anunciado la incorporación de un talento de la competencia, concretamente de Samsung. Probablemente a los coreanos no les haya hecho mucha gracia perder al que hasta ahora era CEO de su división en norteamérica pero lo cierto es que Gregory Lee forma parte ahora del equipo de Nokia y reporta directamente a la persona más importante de la compañía.

De Samsung a Nokia

Gregory Lee entró a formar parte del equipo de Samsung hace 13 años y durante su carrera en la compañía desempeñó varios cargos, aunque el último fue el de CEO de Samsung Electronics North America, dedicándose a dirigir y conformar el catálogo de productos de Samsung en el país. No sólo hablamos de teléfonos móviles sino de todo tipo de dispositivos electrónico, incluidos los relacionados con la domótica.

Lee ha pasado por Kellog's, Johnson & Johnson o Procter & Gamble durante sus 30 años de vida profesional y a partir de ahora será la cabeza visible de Nokia Electronics. Su puesto estará únicamente un peldaño por debajo de Rajeev Suri, presidente y CEO de Nokia, y estará encargado de todos los productos de Nokia que necesiten electricidad para funcionar. Tenemos nuevo responsable de la división de redes y teléfonos.

Estoy emocionado por la oportunidad de dirigir Nokia Technologies. El equipo de Nokia Technologies ha producido productos y soluciones innovadoras en sectores dinámicos y de gran crecimiento dentro del mercado de la tecnología de consumo, y me siento honrado de estar en la posición de ayudar a construir parte de su éxito en el futuro.

En palabras de Suri, la elección de Lee ha estado motivada en parte por su pasión por la innovación y la excelencia en tareas operativas. El desarrollo de la futura Nokia global recaerá ahora sobre los hombros de Gregory Lee mientras Samsung ya trata de buscar un reemplazo para su figura en la compañía. Aunque por el momento, no se han dado datos del estado de las pesquisas.

Disney World Vacation:
  Planning, Prepping, Packing and Postponing a trip of a lifetime and things I learned along the way.

Orlando: I was wondering how big Disney World actually is. I did a little exploring and found out the amusement park is about 30,000 acres, give or take a few.  That's about twice the size of Manhattan, or the actual size of San Francisco. Luckily for me, the parks only take up about a 1/4 of the property.

The land was originally swamps, pasture, forest and orange groves. Some of the property was set aside as a Nature Preserve. Much of the land is still undeveloped. There is lots of space between everything. Just getting from your room to the entrance of the resort to catch the bus can be many footsteps.

So, that brings me to actually ME getting around. I am overweight, I haven't done any long distance  walking since my husband started to have very bad pain in his back, hips and feet, and I don't have good muscle tone. I huff and puff going up a flight of stairs. How was I going to do the miles required? And although my sister is in better shape, she hasn't been walking at regular intervals, either.Pride Portable Electric GoGo Scooter Rental Orlando:

Maybe I should rent a walker or a electric scooter. We could share the use so neither one of us would be worn out. I looked up scooters and the price is about $50.00 a day for a scooter and it must stay in the park that you originally rented it from. Then I began to think about how I would maneuver it in the crowds and have to worry about leaving it outside when we went in to attractions. EEEEEK.

 If there was just some more time to get myself in shape.

You know we all became mathematicians for the same reason: 
we were lazy. 
Max Rosenlicht

The 181st day of the year; 181 is the 9th palindromic prime number.

and the 181-digit palindromic number made up of all 7's except for the center being 181 (7777...7718177...77777) is a palindromic prime with a palindromic prime decimal length.

181 is the both the difference and the sum of consecutive squares:
\( 181 = 91^2 – 90^2 = 9^2 + 10^2 \)

 Every natural number greater than 181 can be written as sum of cubes of the first two primes. (students might be asked to find all examples of numbers less than 181 that can be written in this fashion, such as 35= 23 + 33)



EVENTS
1686 The Royal Society made the decision to publish De Historia Piscium, a lavishly-illustrated history of fishes by John Ray and Francis Willughby. The books was beautiful, but turned out to be such a poor seller that the Society almost went bankrupt. At one point Edmond Halley's salary could not be paid during the same period when he was trying to get Newton to complete his epic masterpiece, The Principia. Fortunately for science, Halley accepted a deal for something like one-hundred copies of the fish book, and then mostly funded the publication of Newton's classic himself over the next year. I don't know if Halley ever managed to sell any of the De Historia Piscium that he took in lieu of salary. *PB old notes.

1737 John Harrison, after positive results on the test of his first sea-clock, receives the first money awarded by the Board of Longitude (23 years after the Act to create the Board). Harrison received 500 Pounds, 250 Pounds to be paid immediately, and another 250 Pounds after completing a second clock that passes testing at sea. *Derek Howse, Britain's Board of Longitude: The Finances 1714-1828

1742 Euler replied (see June 7 post) in a letter dated 30 June 1742, and reminded Goldbach of an earlier conversation they had ("...so Ew vormals mit mir communicirt haben.."), in which Goldbach remarked his original (and not marginal) conjecture followed from the following statement, “Every even integer greater than 2 can be written as the sum of two primes,” which is thus also a conjecture of Goldbach. In the letter dated 30 June 1742, Euler stated:“Dass ... ein jeder numerus par eine summa duorum primorum sey, halte ich für ein ganz gewisses theorema, ungeachtet ich dasselbe necht demonstriren kann.” ("every even integer is a sum of two primes. I regard this as a completely certain theorem, although I cannot prove it.")*Wik

1860 Oxford evolution debate took place at the Oxford University Museum on 30 June 1860, seven months after the publication of Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species. Several prominent British scientists and philosophers participated, including Thomas Henry Huxley, Bishop Samuel Wilberforce, Benjamin Brodie, Joseph Dalton Hooker and Robert FitzRoy.
The debate is best remembered today for a heated exchange in which Wilberforce supposedly asked Huxley whether it was through his grandfather or his grandmother that he claimed his descent from a monkey. Huxley is said to have replied that he would not be ashamed to have a monkey for his ancestor, but he would be ashamed to be connected with a man who used his great gifts to obscure the truth *Wik

1894 Tower Bridge opens, In 1886, the foundation stone of the Tower Bridge in London, England was laid (over a time capsule) by the Prince of Wales. The need to cross the River Thames at this point had become increasingly urgent for many years, and finally the necessary Act was passed in 1885. The bridge, designed by Mr. Wolfe Barry, CB, was completed at a cost of about £1,000,000. To permit the passage of tall ships between the towers, two bascule spans, each of 100-ft length, are raised. The side spans to the towers are of the more familiar suspension type. Pedestrians can traverse a high-level footway nearly at the top of the towers, even when the bridge is raised. It was officially opened 30 Jun 1894, by the Prince of Wales, later Edward VII, on behalf of Queen *TIS

1905 Albert Einstein's paper, "On the electrodynamics of moving bodies" (special relativity) is received at the Journal Annalen der Physik.
"Einstein develops the special theory of relativity in this paper. His concern, as he makes clear in the introduction, is that then current electrodynamics harbors a state of rest, the ether state of rest, and the theory gives very different accounts of electrodynamic processes at rest or moving in the ether. But experiments in electrodynamics and optic have provided no way to determine which is the ether state of rest of all inertial state of motion. Einstein shows that Maxwell-Lorentz electrodynamics has in fact always obeyed a principle of relativity of inertial motion. We just failed to notice it since we tacitly thought that space and time had Newtonian properties, not those of special relativity. " *John D Norton, Einstein, 1905, Pitt.edu

1908 A Comet(?) explodes above Tunguska, Siberia. *VFR In 1908, at around 7:15 am, northwest of Lake Baikal, Russia, a huge fireball nearly as bright as the Sun was seen crossing the sky. Minutes later, there was a huge flash and a shock wave felt up to 650 km (400 mi) away. Over Tunguska, a meteorite over 50-m diameter, travelling at over 25 km per second (60,000 mph) penetrated Earth's atmosphere, heated to about 10,000 ºC and detonated 6 to10 km above the ground. The blast released the energy of 10-50 Megatons of TNT, destroying 2,200 sq km of forest leaving no trace of life. The Tunguska rock came out of the Taurid Meteor storm that crosses Earth's orbit twice a year. The first scientific expedition for which records survive was made by Russian mineralogist Leonid Kulik in 1927. *TIS

A group of scientist boarded a prototype French Concorde airplane to chase a solar eclipse. The eclipse promised a luxurious view if you stood at the right place on the planet: a maximum of 7 minutes and 4 seconds as the moon passed over the Sahara Desert. It would be just 28 seconds short of the longest possible eclipse viewable from Earth; in the preceding several hundred years, there had only been one eclipse longer than this one, and there would not be a longer total solar eclipse until June 2150. Not satisfied with one of the longest eclpises in recent history, the group managed to negotiate a viewing flight on the still in testing Concorde. Closing in at maximum velocity, Concorde would swoop down from the north and intercept the shadow of the moon over northwest Africa. Traveling together at almost the same speed, Concorde would essentially race the solar eclipse across the surface of the planet, giving astronomers an unprecedented opportunity to study the various phenomena made possible by an eclipse. In one flight, Concorde had given astronomers more eclipse observing time than all the previous expeditions last century—generating three articles in Nature and a wealth of new data. *Motherboard

BIRTHS

1748  Dominique Cassini (30 June 1748 – 18 October 1845)  was a French mathematician and surveyor who worked on his father's map of France.  He was the son of César-François Cassini de Thury and was born at the Paris Observatory. In 1784 he succeeded his father as director of the observatory; but his plans for its restoration and re-equipment were wrecked in 1793 by the animosity of the National Assembly. His position having become intolerable, he resigned on September 6, and was thrown into prison in 1794, but released after seven months. He then withdrew to Thury, where he died fifty-one years later.
He published in 1770 an account of a voyage to America in 1768, undertaken as the commissary of the French Academy of Sciences with a view to testing Pierre Le Roy’s watches at sea. A memoir in which he described the operations superintended by him in 1787 for connecting the observatories of Paris and Greenwich by longitude-determinations appeared in 1791. He visited England for the purposes of the work, and saw William Herschel at Slough. He completed his father’s map of France, which was published by the Academy of Sciences in 1793. It served as the basis for the Atlas National (1791), showing France in departments.
Cassini’s Mémoires pour servir à l’histoire de l’observatoire de Paris (1810) embodied portions of an extensive work, the prospectus of which he had submitted to the Academy of Sciences in 1774. The volume included his Eloges of several academicians, and the autobiography of his great-grandfather, Giovanni Cassini.*Wik

1791  Félix Savart (June 30, 1791, Charleville-Mézières, Ardennes – March 16, 1841, Paris) became a professor at Collège de France in 1836 and was the co-originator of the Biot-Savart Law, along with Jean-Baptiste Biot. Together, they worked on the theory of magnetism and electrical currents. Their law was developed about 1820. The Biot-Savart Law relates magnetic fields to the currents which are their sources. Félix Savart also studied acoustics. He developed the Savart wheel which produces sound at specific graduated frequencies using rotating disks.
Félix Savart is the namesake of the unit of measurement for musical intervals, the savart, though it was actually invented by Joseph Sauveur.*Wik

1856 Cargill Knott (June 30, 1856 – October 26, 1922) born. He graduated from Edinburgh University and was then an assistant in the Physics department. With Barclay and Fraser he was one of the writers who originally proposed the founding of the EMS. He went to the Imperial University in Tokyo as Professor. He returned to a lectureship in Edinburgh and eventually became a Reader in Applied Mathematics. He became Secretary and Treasurer of the EMS in 1883 and President in 1893 and 1918.*SAU

1880 Birthdate of Rudolf Fueter (30 June 1880 in Basel; 9 August 1950 in Brunnen) who worked with functions with non-commutative variables and also in number theory. *SAU


DEATHS

1660 William Oughtred, (5 March 1575 – 30 June 1660) inventor of the slide rule (1621) and a staunch royalist, died in a transport of joy on hearing the news of the restoration of Charles II. Augustus De Morgan later remarked, “It should be added, by way of excuse, that he was eighty-six years old.” *VFR an Episcopal minister who invented the earliest form of the slide rule, two identical linear or circular logarithmic scales held together and adjusted by hand. Improvements involving the familiar inner rule with tongue-in-groove linear construction came later. He introduced the familiar multiplication sign x in a 1631 textbook, along with the first use of the abbreviations sin, cos and tan.*TIS

1919 John William Strutt 3rd Baron of Rayleigh (of Terling Place)(12 November 1842 – 30 June 1919) was an English physical scientist who made fundamental discoveries in the fields of acoustics and optics that are basic to the theory of wave propagation in fluids. He received the Nobel Prize for Physics in 1904 for his investigations into the densities of the most important gases and his successful isolation of argon, an inert atmospheric gas.*TIS

          Machine Learning Style Transfer For Museums, Libraries, and Collections   

I putting some thought into some next steps for my algorithmic rotoscope work, which is about the training and applying of image style transfer machine learning models. I'm talking with Jason Toy (@jtoy) over at Somatic about the variety of use cases, and I want to spend some thinking about image style transfers, from the perspective of a collector or curator of images--brainstorming how they can organize, make available their work(s) for use in image style transfers.

Ok, let's start with the basics--what am I talking about when I say image style transfer?  I recommend starting with a basic definition of machine learning in this context, providing by my girlfriend, and partner in crime Audrey Watters. Beyond, that I am just referring to the training a machine learning model by directing it to scan an image. This model can then be applied to other images, essentially transferring the style of one image, to any other image. There are a handful of mobile applications out there right now that let you apply a handful of filters to images taken with your mobile phone--Somatic is looking to be the wholesale provider of these features

Training one of these models isn't cheap. It costs me about $20 per model in GPUs to create--this doesn't consider my time, just my hard compute costs (AWS bill). Not every model does anything interesting. Not all images, photos, and pieces of art translate into cool features when applied to images. I've spent about $700 training 35 filters. Some of them are cool, and some of them are meh. I've had the most luck focusing on dystopian landscapes, which I can use in my storytelling around topics like immigration, technology, and the election

This work ended up with Jason and I talking about museums and library collections, thinking about opportunities for them to think about their collections in terms of machine learning, and specifically algorithmic style transfer. Do you have images in your collection that would translate well for use in graphic design, print, and digital photo applications? I spend hours looking through art books for the right textures, colors and outlines. I also spend hours looking through graphic design archives for movie and gaming industry, as well as government collections. Looking for just the right set of images that will either transfer and produce an interesting look, as well as possible transfer something meaningful to the new images that I am applying styles to.

Sometimes style transfers just make a photo look cool, bringing some general colors, textures, and other features to a new photo--there really isn't any value in knowing what image was behind the style transfer, it just looks cool. Other times, the image can be enhanced knowing about the image behind the machine learning model, and not just transferring styles between images, but also potentially transferring some meaning as well. You can see this in action when I took a nazi propaganda poster and applied to it to photo of Ellis Island, or I took an old Russian propaganda poster and applied to images of the White House. I a sense, I was able to transfer some of the 1000 words applied to the propaganda posters and transfer them to new photos I had taken.

It's easy to think you will make a new image into a piece of art by training a model on a piece of art and transferring it's characteristics to a new image using machine learning. Where I find the real value is actually understanding collections of images, while also being aware of the style transfer process, and thinking about how images can be trained and applied. However, this only gets you so far, there has to still be some value or meaning in how it's being applied, accomplishing a specific objective and delivering some sort of meaning. If you are doing this as part of some graphic design work it will be different than if you are doing for fun on a mobile phone app with your friends.

To further stimulate my imagination and awareness I'm looking through a variety of open image collections, from a variety of institutions:

I am also using some of the usual suspects when it comes to searching for images on the web:

I am working on developing specific categories that have relevance to the storytelling I'm doing across my blogs, and sometimes to help power my partners work as well. I'm currently mining the following areas, looking for interesting images to train style transfer machine learning models:

  • Art - The obvious usage for all of this, finding interesting pieces of art that make your photos look cool.
  • Video Game - I find video game imagery to provide a wealth of ideas for training and applying image style transfers.
  • Science Fiction - Another rich source of imagery for the training of image style transfer models that do cool things.
  • Electrical - I'm finding circuit boards, lighting, and other electrical imagery to be useful in training models.
  • Industrial - I'm finding industrial images to work for both sides of the equation in training and applying models.
  • Propaganda - These are great for training models, and then transferring the texture and the meaning behind them.
  • Labor - Similar to propaganda posters, potentially some emotional work here that would transfer significant meaning.
  • Space - A new one I'm adding for finding interesting imagery that can train models, and experiencing what the effect is.

As I look through more collections, and gain experience training style transfer models, and applying models, I have begun to develop an eye for what looks good. I also develop more ideas along the way of imagery that can help reinforce the storytelling I'm doing across my work. It is a journey I am hoping more librarians, museum curators, and collection stewards will embark on. I don't think you need to learn the inner workings of machine learning, but at least develop enough of an understanding that you can think more critically about the collection you are knowledgeable about. 

I know Jason would like to help you, and I'm more than happy to help you along in the process. Honestly, the biggest hurdle is money to afford the GPUs for training the image. After that, it is about spending the time finding images to train models, as well as to apply the models to a variety of imagery, as part of some sort of meaningful process. I can spend days looking through art collection, then spend a significant amount of AWS budget training machine learning models, but if I don't have a meaningful way to apply them, it doesn't bring any value to the table, and it's unlikely I will be able to justify the budget in the future.

My algorithmic rotoscope work is used throughout my writing and helps influence the stories I tell on API Evangelist, Kin Lane, Drone Recovery, and now Contrafabulists. I invest about $150.00 / month training to image style transfer models, keeping a fresh number of models coming off the assembly line. I have a variety of tools that allow me to apply the models using Algorithmia and now Somatic. I'm now looking for folks who have knowledge and access to interesting image collections, who would want to learn more about image style transfer, as well as graphic design and print shops, mobile application development shops, and other interested folks who are just curious about WTF image style transfers are all about.

          Another malware attack stalks the world’s computers   

Heavy NotPety’ing

A LITTLE over a month ago a piece of malicious computer software called WannaCry spread around the world, freezing Chinese cash machines, trashing German railway timetables and causing chaos in British hospitals. On June 27th the world was treated to a re-run. As The Economist went to press, a different piece of malicious software, tentatively dubbed NotPetya, had infected tens of thousands of PCs.

This outbreak started in Ukraine, hitting the electricity network, shutting down payment terminals and even locking up radiation monitors at Chernobyl. But it soon spread. Those affected included Rosneft, a Russian oil firm, Maersk, a Danish shipping company, and Merck, an American drugmaker.

Analysis by Microsoft suggests NotPetya spread via accounting software, popular in Ukraine, that is made by a firm called M.E. Doc. The malware’s creators seem to have used the process by which M.E. Doc...

          1000 Games Ago   
Tonight, January 23, 2014, the Columbus Blue Jackets celebrate their 1000th game.  In honor of this occasion, many fans are looking back at their memories of the team over the years.  Today's entry takes us back to the beginning with a couple of game worn jerseys from the inaugural season.

Tyler Wright personifies the first Blue Jackets team to me.  He was hard working and gritty with just enough skill to balance the permanent chip on his shoulder.  This jersey would have been worn the first half of the season based on markings behind the crest.  It was certainly used in the first regular season game in franchise history on October 7, 2000 against the Chicago Blackhawks.  Wright assisted on the second goal in franchise history that night as well.

I can't make a jersey post without adding a little jersey nerdiness, so bear with me on this part:
Typical of all first season jerseys, it has a removeable velcro letter on the top left of the jersey.  Photos show that even captain Lyle Odelein had a velcro C, making things easier on the equipment staff if coach Dave King were to move the letters around on any given night.  NHL equipment managers don't really do this much anymore, often just opting for different jerseys for a player who is part of a rotating captaincy - one with letter sewn on, one without.
Ok, I feel better having included that and it wasn't so bad to learn that, was it?

Moving on, we have the favorite jersey of my collection. Goalie Ron Tugnutt took control of the net early on in the inaugural season and ended up tying the NHL record for goalie wins with an expansion franchise (22).  This road sweater is from the first set of 2000-01 jerseys, meaning it was used in the first half of the season just like the Wright jersey.  It was worn in the first franchise victory in Calgary and again in the first franchise shutout on December 18, 2000 in Montreal.

Tugnutt, the only goalie I'm aware of to receive votes for President of the United States, was instantly a fan favorite in Columbus, and you still see Tugger jerseys in the arena on any given night.  His scrambling style, affable personality and success made him easy for early Columbus fans to cheer.


When I watch the team today, I'm often reminded of that first team and that first year. You can see some of that inaugural team in the 2013-14 team. There is a little of the same attitude, a lot of the same grit and quite a bit more youth and skill, but most of all, you get the same sense of putting the team first above all.  You can usually tell when a team is built the right way and playing well together because it's difficult for fans to pick out a favorite player. Is it Johansen, Atkinson, Umberger, Bobrovsky, Johnson or Wisniewski? Wasn't it once hard to choose between Tugnutt, Knutsen, Sanderson, Heinze, Vyborny, or Klesla? This kind of thing, these types of players, among the other things mentioned, are why it's so easy for fans to support this team, why the electricity is returning to Nationwide Arena and why soon, it will again be the best rink in the NHL.
It has never been as clear to me as it is today what this franchise is all about and where we're headed. It's going to be a wild, fun ride, and I can't wait for the next 1000 games.

          Best of 2014: Audiobooks   
I cannot express the right words for how passionate I am about my audiobooks.  There are days (weeks!) when I don't look at a single printed page of a book because I'm running around like my hair is on fire.  But audios I can do...in the car, cleaning the house, doing yard work, cooking, walking.  A well-narrated audio can be the most incredible experience...in some cases the entire story comes to life and feels like a movie in my head.  

I can't vouch for these books in print.  But in my ears they came alive.  

Non-Fiction




Five Days at Memorial - Sheri Fink (narrated by Kirstin Potter):  This is an absolutely riveting and horrifying story about the events that transpired at Memorial Hospital in New Orleans after Katrina hit.  No electricity, a failed generator, and hundreds of critically ill and elderly patients too frail to evacuate.  In a move that was highly controversial, decisions were made to euthanize the most helpless patients with lethal doses of painkillers.  It is hard to imagine such events occurring today, and brings up some highly discussable topics.  Perfect for book clubs.  Kirstin Potter is a wonderful narrator, but the real attraction here is the facts. 





In the Kingdom of Ice - Hampton Sides (narrated by Arthur Morey):  This bit of history about an ill-fated Polar expedition in the late nineteenth century reads like a thriller.  An eccentric playboy benefactor, incorrect maps and misinformation, starvation, frostbite, a breached hull, trudging for hundreds of miles in the frozen tundra, madness...it just doesn't get any more fascinating than this.  Like "Five Days at Memorial", the narration was well-done but the facts are self-sustaining.    




This is the Story of a Happy Marriage - Ann Patchett (narrated by the author):  Before I listened to this audio, I would have sworn that I wasn't into "essays".  But Patchett's, written for magazines over the expanse of her career, are ones that will touch on something that will move you.  MOST of them moved me.  Stories about writing her first book, about her dog, about her failed first marriage and her successful second one, about relationships with family and friends, opening a bookstore, being persecuted because of the content of her books...it is absolutely perfect in every way.  Patchett is so natural in her narration too.  This is one audio that I want to purchase in print to keep forever.


Fiction  




Native Son - Richard Wright (narrated by Peter Francis James):  This story knocked the wind out of me.  Set in 1930's Chicago, it tells the tale of Bigger Thomas, a young black man that makes a series of bad decisions that drags him into a downward spiral.  It is gut-wrenching, and shows the desperation and hopelessness of the black man during that time.  I suspect the novel in print would have an equal impact, but the narration is superb.    





We Are Water - Wally Lamb (narrated by Wally Lamb, George Guidall, Maggi-Meg Reed, Tavia Gilbert, Richard Ferrone, Edoardo Ballerini, Cynthia Darlow,  Therese Plummer):  If you asked me to list my top 10 audios EVER, this one would be one of them.  Lamb is a hell of a storyteller, in this case covering everything from a modern family and their individual struggles, gay marriage, pedophilia, racial prejudice...oh yeah you get it all here, as is Lamb's way.  But the narrators?  That is a loaded cast of voices, and they made this audio completely unputdownable.  It unfolded like a movie right before me, truly some of the best narration I've heard.  We read this in my book club, and some of the members refused to read it because of the pedophilia.  It's too bad because while that was very hard to listen to, I believe it to be one of the best books written this year.




Someone Else's Love Story - Joshilyn Jackson (narrated by the author):  Most of you know this, but I refuse to read a JJ book in print.  All of her books but one are narrated by the author herself, and she is marvelous.  Her stories are marvelous too...quirky, usually dysfunctional, Southern, and all center on very strong women.  In this novel, she also throws in autism and a love triangle of sorts.  And a girl who got pregnant without having sex.  You have to read it to believe it.  It is classic Joshilyn Jackson.  



Every Day - David Levithan (narrated by Alex McKenna):  While this book officially fell under the YA genre, it gets serious credit for tickling my brain and presenting a very unique premise (something you don't get often in ANY genre).  Every day "A" (a spirit? a soul? a male?  a female?) wakes up in a different body.  A is at peace with its existence, and lives by the rules of not interfering or causing attention in its subject's life.  Then A meets and falls in love with a girl.  Suddenly every day is a mission to get close to her, which is difficult when each day A is a radically different person.  It sounds a little wacky, but it works.  It is beautiful.  And very beautifully narrated.     




The Martian - Andy Weir (narrated by R.C. Bray):  If you've been anywhere near a book review this year, you will recognize this one.   This book was all the rage!  This won't be the only list you will see it on, particular in audio form.  About a wise-ass brainiac that get accidentally left on Mars during an exploration mission, it makes science fiction accessible and LIKABLE by one and all.  The narration of Bray provides the perfect snarky voice of a guy who is basically screwed but uses his last wit to stay alive.  Oh and by the way, it's going to be a movie starring Matt Damon.  Yep.




The Silkworm - Robert Galbraith (narrated by Robert Glenister):  If you thought J.K. Rowling shot her wad on Harry Potter, you were wrong.  This series started with "The Cuckoo's Calling" and set the groundwork with a protagonist who is a rumpled but genius private investigator, and his cute ambitious assistant.  I felt that Cuckoo's mystery was a tad pedestrian and one-dimensional, but she let out all the stops on this one.  The cherry on top was that the mystery occurs butt-deep in the publishing industry.  Robert Glenister's narration is simply as good as it gets.  He is amazing.   




World of Trouble - Ben H. Winters (narrated by Peter Berkrot):  This book is the third installment in The Last Policeman Trilogy, and yes, it is extremely unusual that the final book would be the mind-blower but it was.  The premise of the trilogy is that a very large asteroid is going to hit the earth and end civilization as we know it.  As time ticks down, people hunker down, pursue their bucket lists, kill themselves, get stoned on drugs.  But Detective Hank Palace (a little on the spectrum I think) continues to solve murders, chase down missing persons, and try to save his little sister.  The first two novels are good, but this one is remarkable.  Not too many people can pull off the end of the world quite like this.  The narrator isn't the best in the business, but his voice became Hank Palace and I was glad they kept him through the series.

Will Graefe has spent much of the last decade on the road. Touring as the guitarist for bands such as Okkervil River, Star Rover, Petra Haden, Jesse Harris, and Landlady, he has traveled all around the continent and grown accustomed to seeing things from a moving vehicle.

In his first full-length as a solo act, Graefe captures his observations from the road in a concise and contemplative album, North America. The guitarist wrote the songs while on the move but returned home to Brooklyn to record his songs at Figure 8, where he welcomed collaborators including Shahzad Ismaily (Sam Amidon and Damien Rice), Benjamin Lazar Davis (Cuddle Magic and Okkervil River), and others. The resulting work contains both a sense of immediacy and a polished and full sound.

North America is, in many ways, the album one would expect from its origin story. The record reflects all of the yearning, restlessness, isolation, and beauty that comes with wandering from place to place across a large and varied continent. Graefe’s work fits neatly into the Americana tradition, combining storytelling, a meditative sound centered around acoustic guitars, and the push and pull between cowboy solitude and the desire for close relationships. For most of North America, the former sentiment wins out. On “Rest Your Head on the State Line,” Graefe sings, “In times of need / I find my own reprieve echoing softly,” affirming his own independence; the three different versions of the all-instrumental “North America” suggest that words aren’t necessary to communicate feeling; and in “Place Me on a Rock,” he sings, “Leave me on my own / The reverie’s been shown.”

In that last song, though, the melody is subdued and slow, betraying some sadness as it unfolds patiently over acoustic guitar and the quiet glow of mellotron. Being alone, it seems to suggest, does not always live up to the romantic notions we ascribe to it. In “Call Me A Stone,” the artist longs for home as he talks to someone on speaker phone. “Boys” is also about communication, its Elliot Smith-like chorus repeating, “Please don’t speak and I’ll hear you.” This is a different side of the same American (and human, for that matter) coin: the need for the relationships that are at a distance.

The problem with fitting so neatly into the Americana tradition, though, is that occasionally, the songwriting in North America can cross the line into cliché. At times, the lyrics force a rhyme (“Put me in a box / And fasten all the locks / I won’t make a sound / Until I touch down”) or use too-familiar imagery (“Like a river, they run right through me” in “Boys,” and “I know my feeling has no ceiling” on “Blood Feather”).

But these moments are rare and easy to miss on an album that otherwise deals in beautiful subtlety. Exhibiting his training, Graefe excels at using the full range of what a guitar can do. He finger-picks quietly, eliciting a powerful bout of wistfulness; strums to make a full, lush sound; and with a soaring, screeching electric guitar, makes certain songs feel lofty and wonderfully off-kilter. At first glance a straightforward album, North America quickly reveals the twists and turns that unfold like the many roads on which it reflects. We should be glad, then, that those roads eventually led Graefe back.

          Transcript: Community Broadband Bits Episode 260   

This is the transcript for episode 260 of the Community Broadband Bits podcast. Author and journalist Alex Marshall discusses broadband infrastructure and the role of planners. Listen to this episode here.

 

Alex Marshall: Broadband is a type of infrastructure. So, it's a planner's job to think about how do we develop a system and to have the citizens connect to the system.

Lisa Gonzalez: This is episode 260 of the Community Broadband Bits podcast, from the Institute for Local Self-Reliance. I'm Lisa Gonzales. Author, journalist and fellow, Alex Marshall visits with Christopher this week about broadband as infrastructure. They also discuss the role of planners, as broadband has transitioned into a necessity for economic development, education, municipal services, and many other critical uses. Before we get started, we want to remind you that this commercial-free podcast isn't free to produce. Take a minute to contribute at ILSR.org. If you're already a contributor, thanks. Now, here's Christopher with Alex Marshall.

Christopher Mitchell: Welcome to another edition of the Community Broadband Bits podcast. I'm Chris Mitchell and today, I'm speaking with Alex Marshall, an author, a senior fellow at the non-profit urban planning organization, The Regional Plan Association, and that's in New York City, and a columnist for Governing Magazine. All in one person. Alex, welcome to the show.

Alex Marshall: Thank you. Nice to be here.

Christopher Mitchell: Alex, you and I have gone back and forth for a lot a years, actually. You came in town, one of the places you visited and promoted your book, The Surprising Design of Market Economies, a book that I whole-heartedly recommend. And I think we're going to talk about that later in the interview, but first I wanted to ask you more about planning. You are a planner. You do a lot of thinking about planning. You write about this sort of thing and the role of broadband within planning. Maybe the best place to start is just what's the historic role of planners been within the relation of broadband?

Alex Marshall: Well, I think planners tend to view it correctly as another form or branch of essential infrastructure. So, it is the duty of planners to think about infrastructure and what are the systems we need, how should it be provided, where should it be laid out, what are the systems. Good planners think about that and have different answers to that. I'm just preparing to give a talk out in Los Angeles next week, which is a conference on infrastructure. I was just thinking of a line that a transportation planner said once a long time ago that I liked. He said, "Transportation is a system. You can't have a little bit of transportation." And I think that applies to infrastructure. For infrastructure to be infrastructure it has to be a system. You can't have a little bit of infrastructure. And broadband is a type of infrastructure. It needs to be a system. And so to that extent, it's a planner's job to think about how do we develop a system. What's the best way to have a system and to have the people, the public, citizens connected to the system?

Christopher Mitchell: When we think about that sort of system, what are the daily things that planners do that will impact how a system is developed or conceived of, or how it would impact my daily life that a planner is thinking about these things in a better way or a worse way?

Alex Marshall: Planners work for various people. There are non-profit planners, such as the organization that I'm part of, The Regional Plan Association, who basically do studies and then lobby to get them done. But there are the planners that work for all levels of government, and their actions often have eventually have more of a force of law where you either implement laws or work with legislatures or city councils to have plans in place that actually make it possible or deliver service directly, or make it possible for service to be directly. With broadband, it is mostly at the city level, but the planners are often a key interphase between providers of broadband and the public. They help decide how that's going to happen, how that's going to be provider. And they can either facilitate it or make it more difficult and have a say in who's providing it.

Christopher Mitchell: I get a sense that, considering that I just spoke at the American Planning Association recently in New York City, that planners are really getting excited about being more involved with broadband and recognizing that they have to get involved. And I'm curious if you have an advice for some of these people who are excited and are trying to figure out how to plug in, regardless of where they might be. What are some of the things that planners should be thinking about right now?

Alex Marshall: I think planners should be thinking about who's in charge. Who controls and who owns things. There is a tendency, sometimes, among planners, as there is among the general public, to have subject list sentences or subject list thoughts. You sort of say, "Well, this broadband is really great. Let's help spread it," or "Let's help have some good planning for it without totally talking about who's in charge," basically. Is the private telecommunications company? Will it be the city? If this isn't essential technology, who is owning it? That's always a good question. Who owns it? Who controls it? To keep those questions foremost in your mind, if you're a planner, is a good one because if the public is not ultimately in charge, then usually you're going to have some problems.

Christopher Mitchell: In presumably, one of the ways the public could be in charge would be to, not only building a municipal city-wide network, which you've written and, like me, you support the ability of cities to decide for themselves if that's a good decision, but also planners might be responsible for ensuring that a city is a deploying conduit and, perhaps, fiber optics in ways that would lower the cost for a new entrant to come to town, or something like that.

Alex Marshall: Cities help basically establish the marketplace. Is it an open market? Is it a market where only one or two players can be? Does the city provide some of the services and then business comes in. As I say in my book, Surprising Design of Market Economies, the arenas that businesses operate are instituted by government, so we should think about what kind of arenas or public squares or business squares the governments are doing.

Christopher Mitchell: It's a good connection to what I really wanted to jump into with you. And that is this idea of the surprising design of market economies. And I'll throw at you something that I hear a fair amount of, which is that if government would just get out of the way, we would see markets work amazingly well and we wouldn't have broadband problems. And I'm curious how you respond to that common notion.

Alex Marshall: Thanks for throwing me that softball in a way because I did write a book about that. It's basically just a misunderstanding of how markets work. You can't have markets without government. So, asking government to get out of the way so business can do its job is kind of nonsensical. You can't actually have business without government. You can have property. They all depend of government, basically. Warren Zevon had the song, to have markets you need "lawyers, guns and money." You have a government that's involved in every step of the way. It's not only a referee for fair play, but it also lays out the playing field and decides what the goals are and where the lines are, and on and on and on. These are all public choices. We often miss what government is doing in the areas that it does it so well, we just don't think about it. Property rights, they actually work relatively well, most of the time, so we don't really think about the fact that these were all based on laws that say who owns what, how you own it, what happens when someone else says you own something. A lot of physical infrastructure that we depend on goes back to government and, again, we just don't tend to think about it when it works well.

Christopher Mitchell: One of the things that I think people really never really think about is just the idea of the corporation. And the idea an entity that has limited liability and can live forever and has a number of benefits that, frankly, allow certain kinds of businesses to do very well. I'm not talking about just big corporations. I'm talking about the ability of people to turn into a corporation and then do things. I'm curious if you can just tell us a little bit about that idea.

Alex Marshall: Yes, yes. Corporations is another great example. We've gotten so use to them, we just accept them as if they are laws or nature. Act like they've always been there. Ironically, they often become a symbol of private enterprise. But, a corporation is a creation of government. Someone called it a "mini republic." It's a grant of authority and a grant of special powers from the government and that is done through something called a charter. A government of some type issues this charter, a state, usually, or the federal government, and they create something called a corporation that has these special powers. Originally, they were only granted for public purposes. They would be like a university, or a monastery, or building a road. In the 19th century, they gradually became opened up to just purely for profit enterprises. Then, eventually, got granted that you could do it just by right. Anybody could start a corporation. You used to have to get a special authorization from the legislature. We've forgotten that these corporations that we talk about, from Apple down to a little neighborhood corporation is created by government. We, the people, who control the government, can change those rules, redesign those charters, redesign those powers they have. They've been, in a lot of ways, very effective tools, corporations. But, I think it would be better if we remember that they're ultimately creations of the people and answerable to them.

Christopher Mitchell: One of things that I often think about when people say, "If government just got out of the way," I think it would be interesting if Comcast had to negotiate with every land owner to put a utility pole in their property. You can imagine the kind of patterns that might exist when you have perhaps ten properties in a row and two of them say, "No." Comcast has to detour around the neighborhood to try and find landowners who are willing to give them, at a reasonable cost, access to put a pole in their yard. Just things like that I think people just take for granted.

Alex Marshall: Yes, exactly. For infrastructure, it's always done in the public right of way. It's either done through utility poles or in the streets. If government got out of the way and said, "Look, we're getting out of the way. We're not going to allow you to use our streets because we don't want to impede you," and then they had to buy up their own right of ways for all their line. It would be completely unworkable. So, again, the idea of government somehow getting out of the way doesn't even really make sense.

Christopher Mitchell: What I want to engage you on related to in to your book. You talk about roads and the gas tax. I feel like roads are often used to discuss broadband systems as a comparison. And I think it's a very good comparison. I'm curious if you would agree that roads and broadband have a lot of commonality.

Alex Marshall: Tell you what I think about roads and then we'll see if we can reach broadband. I think roads are pretty neat because they're mostly an example of government doing its job really well. The roads and street systems in this country, whatever their flaws, mostly work really well and we don't even think about. It's an example of, basically, pure socialism, really. Government owns all the streets. They're mostly paid for through taxes not user fees. It's like 90% through just taxes of some sort. And I walk out my door here in New York City and no one charges me to walk down the street, or to ride a bicycle on it or drive a car, or walk on the sidewalk. It's just open to anybody. And it's a system. It's a network. It's not a little fragmented thing. You don't have different streets owned by different people or different roads and you have to pay each one. It's an example of government doing its job really well. Laying out a system, charging it through mostly general taxation. It works pretty well. I mean, there are obviously ways it could be improved, but I would like to see broadband something similar, where the government lays out the municipal fiber networks. The analogy is not exact. You probably would have to charge something. I would like there to be system on broadband that functions as well as our road and street network.

Christopher Mitchell: Well, there's a couple of follow ups and one you noted, which is why the gas tax not a user fee?

Alex Marshall: That's something I love to talk about because it does, at first glance, appear to be a user fee. You go, "Well, I go up to a pump and put some gas in and drive away, and then I use the road. So, it's kind of a user fee." But, it's not really a user fee because it's not connected to any particular street. I compare it to what if every time you went shopping for groceries, you paid a tax on avocados, and then government could use that in any way it wanted for the agriculture system or even something general. That wouldn't be a user fee. It's just a way of taxation. And it's similar to gas. It's just a system the government has of taxing. It's not a user fee because it doesn't relate to any one road.

Christopher Mitchell: Right. I think that's a compelling argument. One of the other things I think about is that the roads were developed before we had technology that was capable of, basically, tracking any individual or any piece of equipment that uses the roads and, perhaps, charging them a pro rata share of their use. I think some libertarians would think this would be great. Then we could actually charge the roads appropriately. And I'm curious how you react to our ability to do that. Should we take advantage of that now?

Alex Marshall: With caution, that's to say we should take advantage of that with caution. Oregon has been experimenting with a program where you do have little things in your car and it would rate how much you use the roads and then charge you accordingly and, I also believe charge you higher when there's congestion. All of those actually do have some potential, but you have to be careful because infrastructure has wide benefit to people as the public, as the state. When you do something like build a road network, you want it used as widely as possible. You just put a lot of money into this. And you want it used widely. You don't want everyone thinking twice before they step out their front door. So, generally, actually you don't want to charge for the use for any kind of infrastructure, unless it's overused. Unless it's congested or you need to ration it somehow. Libertarians usually don't understand this basically. We've gotten so into the rut of thinking, "Oh, you charge for services. That's efficient." They don't understand the logic of basic infrastructure, actually, as it has a different logic. It's that we, as a society, benefit when we pay for this service or institution generally, and then have it used as widely as possible. Education is another big example. We decided 150 years through a big, long, dragged, drawn out political fights that everyone would have a right to a public education, and that we as a society work better when people know how to read and write. We don't say everyone has to pay at the door to enter a school, and that if you can't, then you can't come in, and that the schools have to survive solely on those fees.

Christopher Mitchell: That's actually one of the other things I think you point out in terms of one of things government does that people don't notice is creating an educated work force for the market to be able to take advantage of. I don't want to get sidetracked. You led me right back to where I wanted to end up with broadband because there's that issue of when we worry more about who's paying and if they're paying for their fair share when there's congestion and overuse. With modern broadband networks, we don't really have to worry about that as much. If we need more broadband, it takes a little bit more electricity. It doesn't take to put in a bigger router, or something like that, with a fiber network. We don't need to go mine more coal or dig new water wells. And this is an issue that has been interesting to me in that even the municipal networks that you and I often support, they have more or less just adopted the cable model of trying to figure out how to make individuals pay. There's these tiered plans to try and make people who use more pay more, and sort of complicated. And one of the downsides of that is that low income households find it difficult to afford access.

Alex Marshall: Yes, that's probably a big mistake, basically.

Christopher Mitchell: But the reason I compare it to roads often, is that people don't realize how much of the roads were built by tax payer dollars, and it makes sense to do that. I think that because there is a cable and telephone industry that government should not just steamroll because many of us are frustrated with our service. We actually have a situation in which I could see Americans in many cities supporting using general tax payer dollars to build open fiber networks that would enable multiple business models to use them and lower the cost of entry so we could achieve numerous ends. But, I feel like this metaphor of the road is important for making that point.

Alex Marshall: I think you've actually come up with a better frame work than me. In a way, you think of the roads or the broadband fiber optic network as the streets. Maybe the cable companies would be the car companies. Government builds the roads and the car companies build the cars, and you buy the cars if you want to use the roads. Does it sort of hold up if the govern could build the fiber optic networks, and then various companies could actually bid or even operate on the same network? Does that hold up?

Christopher Mitchell: Right. Yes, there's multiple ways of doing it and, in some ways, it's actually, again, analogous, in that you could even imagine the public operates transit service next to buses. You can imagine services that are aimed at different audiences. Some are private, some are public. But anyway, I think one of the things that we have to come back to is thinking about infrastructure more broadly rather than just thinking about internet as this thing we got from cable and telephone companies narrowly.

Alex Marshall: Yes. Something I keep getting excited about is the comparison to electricity back in the 1920s and 30s, when people were aware that electricity was not just an amenity. It wasn't just something that made life better if you could get it, kind of like internet in the early days. It was actually essential. There gradually became these big fights about who was going to provide electricity, and similar to internet companies now, telecommunications companies, there are people who begin to resent the power companies who felt like they were providing bad service at a high price and not rolling it out very quickly. And when they did roll it out, charging too much for it.

Christopher Mitchell: Just to jump in briefly, of course. The cycle repeats itself because the gas lighting companies were the enemies at the end of the 1800s, and electric companies were seen as delivering people from that horror.

Alex Marshall: The tyranny of the gas companies who were, of course, laying their pipes, again, in the public streets. Power has some good results in some places. Some cities and towns manage to get public power, and they generally, still today, operate better than the ones who don't have it. There are very small places, like Wilson, North Carolina, and there's very large places like Los Angeles. The government provides electricity and it seems to work well and to be stable. And now many of those same towns that have public power, it's relatively easier for them to start offering broadband as well, to lay out fiber and to use their existing customer base and booking systems to do all that. But, it's a political issue. I would like a see a presidential candidate campaign on this the way Franklin Delano Roosevelt did in 1932. He was very open about it and very strong. He gave a famous speech in Portland, Oregon in September of 1932 where he very strongly came out in favor of public power and basically said if private enterprise can't do the job, then it's a duty of government to step in and do it. Such a great speech because he talks so clearly and boldly. It's a real model of a great speech. I encourage any of your listeners to look it up. The Portland speech by Franklin Roosevelt.

Christopher Mitchell: Yes, I've read it and I wholly second your endorsement. As we finish up, I want to make one more note, which is a note that I'd made when I first read your book a few years ago. And that is, one other thing that government does that many of us forget about, and it's really important as we deal with the idea of bandwidth caps because this is a question of who measures and how accurate is that measurement. We've seen some of the cable companies that have these caps saying, "All right, well you've hit your limit," and sophisticated technical people will say, "I've been measuring my data usage and I'm nowhere near my limit." One of the things government does is make sure that measurements are fair. You had noted that whether you're talking about a meter or a yard or a liter or a quart, whatever, we know that a liter is a liter in New Orleans as well as in San Francisco, and a quart is a quart no matter where you go because of government.

Alex Marshall: Yes, that's, again, a fascinating thing. These things we don't even think about and, which people take for granted, that the reason we have standard units of measurements, and a pound or meter is the same wherever you go is because government actually, at one point, actually created a standard of what a pound is, or what a yard is, or meter. And actually in the case of yards and pounds, they actually created these golden yard sticks that were super expensive and stored in Washington. Then copies were made of that and then distributed around the country. It doesn't just happen.

          The Mythical Man Moth   
As if rot and verdure weren't enough,
I then became the mythical man moth,
and I fluttered around, that summer, not moon,
but incandescent after incandescent,
each mellifluous orbs in the warm night,
each thrumming with the wings of my cohorts,
all in paroxysm for those faux-moons,
encased in glass, or perspex, and humming
with their own dead, but electric, heartbeat.
          Fences   
 

Lowell fixing fence in September 1956 to keep a small boy (Randy) contained in the yard. I think we did something with fences almost every year that we were married. We had woven wire fences; wooden fences; electric fences and fences made of steel gates. We made new ones; fixed old ones; changed fences and took up fences. We used wooden posts; steel posts and electric posts. We even made a post from woven wire filled with rocks. We used fences for sheep, cows, calves and horses. I don't think Lowell ever threw away a fence post. I learned how to straighten electric fence posts but didn't have enough strength to pound the steel posts straight but I could tell someone how to do it.

When we lived in Austin, MN we had 1 1/2 acres and of course had horses and a fence. The night before we moved a neighbor asked us what we were going to do with the fence - Lowell asked him if he wanted to buy it to which the neighbor said "no". So after my brothers' pick up was loaded with the rest of the household goods he and Lowell took up the fence. It took them 'tll midnight to get that job done and loaded on the pick up. For those of you who don't know about woven wire - it does not roll up tight like it was when new. I wish I had taken a picture but imagine this GMC red pick up loaded with household goods and a large roll of woven wire on top. And a neighbor standing in the middle of the field with no fence wondering what happened.

          Senator Kelly Releases Statement Re: Aetna’s Relocation to NYC   

HARTFORD, Conn. – Today Co-Chairman of the Insurance and Real Estate Committee, State Senator Kevin Kelly (R-Stratford) released the following statement regarding Aetna’s announcement that they will move their Corporate Headquarters to New York City in 2018.

“While this is disappointing news, it is not surprising,” said Sen. Kelly. “Far too long Connecticut has been governed by those with little regard for fiscal responsibility and even less regard for good-paying jobs and the hard-working families that call Connecticut home.”

Following a never-ending budget battle in Hartford, Aetna’s announcement comes just a year after General Electric’s move from Connecticut to Boston.

“If GE’s move wasn’t a wake-up call, this is,” said Sen. Kelly. “All eyes are on us, whether it’s large corporations with headquarters here or the Wall Street credit agencies, all are watching anxiously as the Connecticut economy continues to flounder. We cannot fail to do our jobs; we must put Connecticut on a path to prosperity.”

“Senate Republicans have done their job and have a plan to do this,” said Sen. Kelly. “Our plan lays the foundation for a new Connecticut, a plan that will put hard-working families first, a plan that creates jobs through a stable and predictable economy. Connecticut needs a new direction and Senate Republicans are ready to lead the way.”

          2017 Arkansas Times Academic All-Star Team   
Meet the best and brightest high school students in the state.

The class of 2017, our 23rd, is made up of athletes, coders, budding politicians and brain experts. There's rarely a B on the transcripts of these students — in not just this, their senior year, but in any year of their high school careers.

Back in 1995, we created the Academic All-Star Team to honor what we then called "the silent majority — the kids who go to school, do their homework (most of it, anyway), graduate and go on to be contributing members of society." Too often, we argued then, all Arkansans heard about young people was how poorly they were faring. Or, when students did get positive attention, it came for athletic achievement.

As you read profiles of this year's All-Stars, it should be abundantly clear that good things are happening in Arkansas schools and there are many academic achievers who deserve to be celebrated. You should get a good idea, as well, of how these stellar students are busy outside school, with extracurricular activities, volunteer work, mission activities and more.

They'll be honored this week at a ceremony at the University of Arkansas at Little Rock with plaques and $250 cash awards.

Many college plans listed here are not set in stone, as students await information on scholarships and acceptances.

CAROLINE COPLIN-CHUDY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: Mount St. Mary Academy
Parents: (guardian) Dennis Chudy
College plans: Duke University

Caroline Coplin-Chudy has a 4.4 grade point average — high enough to rank second in her class at Mount St. Mary Academy — and lost her mother to leukemia during her sophomore year, something she told us came to be a source of inspiration and drive during her academic development. "It was a big adjustment. After my mom passed away, it was just my stepdad. It's a weird realization coming to the idea that both of your parents are gone, and it's just you. ... I still think of her every single day. She motivates me to do well in everything, because my whole life I wanted to make her proud." Caroline is president of Mount St. Mary's Investment Club and of SADD (Students Against Destructive Decisions). She's also been a regular volunteer for several years at the Little Rock Compassion Center, whose recovery branch provides meals and health resources to people suffering from addiction. Caroline said she found healing from her own grief in the friendships she forged there. As the recipient of a Questbridge scholarship, described by Caroline's guidance counselor and nominator Amy Perkins as a program where lower-income students qualify for tuition to schools with which they "match" via an early decision process, Caroline will attend Duke University on a full scholarship. "I'm going to study biology and psych, with a minor in Spanish. My plan is to work at the Duke Center for Addiction [Science and Technology] helping people with drug addictions overcome that sort of thing. It's something that I've had experience with, watching my family go through things like that."

AXEL NTAMATUNGIRO
Age: 17
Hometown: Pine Bluff
High School: Subiaco Academy
Parents: Sixte Ntamatungiro and Sylvana Niciteretse
College plans: Rice University, neuroscience

Axel Ntamatungiro grew up among books and maps dispersed throughout his home that "paint[ed] the walls with nuanced shades of knowledge." It shows. Not often can a high school senior explain, as Axel does, his love for studying the brain so easily. "Neuroscience is basically a neuron turning on and off," he said. "The fact that you have billions of these combinations that lead to consciousness, that's unbelievable." To continue learning about the mind, Axel is headed to Rice University on a full ride as a QuestBridge scholar. Maybe medical school or graduate school after that. Axel said his parents taught him a "humble intellectualism" that helped him understand "the irrationality of life." They always told him: "Work hard, but you need to realize you don't always get what you deserve." And life has been, at times, irrational and difficult for his family. Axel was the only member of his family born in the United States — in Little Rock in 1999. The rest migrated from Burundi in the early 1990s. They stayed here as the Rwandan genocide inflicted incredible damage in the area. That past was never hidden from Axel. "Instead of avoiding my questions, my parents level-headedly answered [them], telling me about Belgian colonialism, Hutu-Tutsi tension and the systematic poverty afflicting Burundi," he said. Maybe that is why Axel has never been afraid to ask big questions. He said it also helped to have a diverse group of friends who taught him new things. At his cafeteria table for lunch are kids from all over: Nigeria, Fort Smith, Japan, Bentonville and Russia. Everyone's small stories add to a global perspective, something bigger from something small, kind of like those neurons.

JADE DESPAIN
Age: 18
Hometown: Springdale
High School: Haas Hall Academy (Fayetteville)
Parents: Brenan and Tiffany DeSpain
College plans: U.S. Naval Academy, nuclear engineering

For Jade DeSpain, the question, "Where's your hometown?" isn't necessarily as straightforward as it seems. The National Merit semifinalist, swimming star and Quiz Bowler spent much of her childhood in Beijing, where her parents — both fluent in Mandarin — taught her Chinese concurrently with English (and where, she notes, she acquired an "incredible prowess with chopsticks.") "We've moved around so much that I don't really have a 'hometown,' but Springdale is the closest I've ever gotten," she said. She's made her impact there, too, tutoring students free of charge through her volunteer work with the M&N Augustine Foundation and putting in time at the Arkansas Council for the Blind and the Springdale Animal Shelter. Jade is ranked second in her class, and her high school transcript is full of aced courses in trigonometry, physics and calculus. She's also the co-founder of Haas Hall Academy's coding club, so a career in nuclear energy development — Jade's field of choice — isn't just an aspiration; it's the plan. "I have a deep appreciation for nature," she told us, citing Devil's Den State Park as a spot to which she feels closely connected, and stressing the importance of preserving natural spaces and developing more long-term options for sustainable energy. On Christmas Day 2016, Jade checked her email to find that she'd attained something she'd wanted as early as age 12: acceptance to the U.S. Naval Academy. There, she'll major in nuclear engineering and complete her five mandatory post-Academy years in the Navy, after which she hopes to acquire a Ph.D. in the field.

AVERY ELLIOTT
Age: 18
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and Melissa Elliott
College plans: University of Arkansas, medicine

Though many of our All-Stars seem destined from birth for academic greatness, there is the occasional inspiring All-Star who has had to overcome seemingly insurmountable odds. One of those is Cabot High School's Avery Elliott, who was born with nystagmus, a condition that causes involuntary eye movements that can make it hard for sufferers to concentrate and learn. Though it's hard to imagine it now, when she was in elementary school Avery found herself falling further and further behind her classmates in reading because of her condition. "That was difficult," she said. "I was behind schedule until about third or fourth grade. I would have to go home and really work with my parents to keep up with the rest of the class." Even though she struggled early on, Avery said that, in a way, the nystagmus contributed to her success and gave her a direction to follow. "I had to learn to really study even outside of school," she said. "I learned some very good study habits. But I think it also really affected where I wanted to go as far as my career. ... I really learned that a medical team can not only dispense medicine, but can really affect someone's life." A National Merit finalist who has volunteered extensively with Special Olympics and already completed 43 hours of college-level coursework, Avery has been awarded the University of Arkansas Fellowship. She plans to study medicine at UAMS after completing her undergrad degree, then practice in Arkansas. That goal has always pushed her to succeed academically. "I wanted to go into the medical field from an early age," she said, "so I knew starting out in high school that I needed to make very good grades in order to get where I needed to. I had to really learn the material, rather than just trying to ace a test."

JARED GILLIAM
Age: 17
Hometown: Cabot
High school: Cabot High School
Parents: Dan and LeAnne Gilliam
College plans: University of Arkansas, engineering

When most young people say they want to change the world, it's easy to believe that's just pie-in-the-sky thinking by someone who hasn't yet been through the Academy of Hard Knocks. When Jared Gilliam says he wants to change the world, however, there's a good chance he might actually pull it off. Jared even has a plan: He'll change the world through engineering. A National Merit finalist and AP scholar with a GPA of 4.18 and a perfect score of 36 on the ACT, Jared is well placed to do just that. A musician who plays percussion with the Cabot High Marching Band, Jared said his favorite subject in school is math. "I think I'm mostly interested in engineering because I've always been sort of a problem-solver," he said. "I've enjoyed math and science, working through things and finding solutions to everyday problems. This year, I've been in robotics, so we've spent time working on a robot to perform various tasks. I've enjoyed that a lot. I think engineering is where my ability would best be used." He'll attend the University of Arkansas, which has offered him the Honors College Fellowship. He said the drive to excel academically has always been a part of his life. "I've grown up being encouraged to do well, and I guess I have my parents to thank for that and all my teachers," he said. "I think knowing that I have the ability to do all of this, I feel compelled to do what I can to make a difference. I think life would be pretty boring if I didn't go out there and do all the things I do. I don't think I could settle for not being successful."

BENJAMIN KEATING
Age: 18
Hometown: Fort Smith
High School: Southside High School
Parents: Drs. Bill and Janice Keating
College plans: Undecided

If you were looking for a ringing endorsement of Ben Keating's character, you'd need to look no further than Amy Slater, the guidance counselor who nominated him for our Academic All-Stars roster and who said of Ben, "He is all the things I hope my son turns out to be. ... He really thinks about things, and he practices the trumpet and piano for hours a day. It's crazy, his dedication." Ben probably had something to prove here; he admits to some skepticism on the part of his mother when he announced he'd be pursuing a career in music. He's certainly proved his mettle; Ben is band president at Southside, was a principal trumpet for the 2017 National Youth Honor Orchestra, first chair for Southside's Wind Symphony and for the All-State Jazz Band and was ranked in the top-tier bands for All-State Band and All-State Orchestra each year from 2014-16. The accolades go on and on: Ben has received a Young Artist Award from the International Trumpet Guild, a Gold Medal from the National Piano Guild and superior ratings from the National Federation of Music Clubs competitions for over a decade. He plays for the Arkansas Symphony Youth Orchestra and as a volunteer musician for the Fort Smith Community Band. Ben is still deciding where to attend college, but wherever he goes, he hopes to continue playing with an orchestra. Eventually, he wants to teach at the university level. "Ultimately," he wrote, "I want to use my passion to unite people of all different races, backgrounds and cultures. In today's society that is politically and culturally divided, it is more important than ever to share the universal language of music."

KATHERINE HAHN
Age: 17
Hometown: Hindsville
High School: Huntsville High School
Parents: Shannon Hahn
College plans: Massachusetts Institute of Technology, biochemical engineering

Katherine Hahn is ranked first in her class at Huntsville High School, which she attends because her hometown of Hindsville is too small to support its own school system. The population of Hindsville is "about 75 people," she told us. At Huntsville High, Katherine plays bass drum in the marching band and marimba/xylophone in the concert band and runs with the Huntsville cross-country team. Her real passion, though, is science. "I think I've always wanted to go to a college that was science-based and research-based," she told us. Her high school principal, Roxanne Enix, noted her own surprise when Katherine announced that she'd take 10 credits her senior year, instead of the recommended eight. "I thought she had lost her mind," Enix stated. Those credits, over half of which are in AP classes, are what Katherine hopes have prepared her for the rigorous workload at MIT. Aiming for a career in pharmaceutical development, Katherine plans to study biochemical engineering, something she said resonated personally with her as a result of her mother's struggle with skin cancer. "Biology helps me understand why medicine does the things it does," Katherine told us. "Whenever I first started out, I wanted to do environmental stuff," she said, but turned her attention to drug delivery systems after observing so many friends and loved ones battling cancer. "I want to help stop people from being scared of losing people," she explained. Katherine, a native of Tahlequah, Okla., who moved to Arkansas around fifth grade, has served on the Madison County Health Coalition as Youth Leader and was named Student of the Year in 2017 by the Huntsville Chamber of Commerce and Huntsville High School.

GEORGIANA BURNSIDE
Age: 18
Hometown: Little Rock
High school: Little Rock Christian Academy
Parents: Bob and Ann Burnside
College plans: Stanford University, biology and public policy

When this reporter mentioned to friends at UAMS that she'd just spoken to an amazingly poised, optimistic and intelligent young woman with a spinal cord injury, they said in unison, "You mean Georgiana Burnside." Her reputation as a teenager who at 16 was paralyzed from the waist down in a snow skiing accident but who considers the event a "blessing" no doubt goes further than UAMS, all the way to Denver's Craig Hospital, where she spent "the most memorable two months in my life," she said, and where she returns to continue her rehabilitation. What is a spinal cord injury? She answers that it is a) a life changed in a split second, b) finding out that a bad attitude is the true disability, c) a time to show off wheelchair tricks, and d) spontaneous moments of unfortunate incontinence. In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Georgiana writes, "my physical brokenness has developed wholeness in my heart about the capacity life holds for individuals regardless of their disabilities." In a phone interview, Georgiana, once a figure skater, talked about her work with Easter Seals, fundraisers for Craig Hospital, and giving talks and testimony about her faith. Georgiana has regained the ability to walk with hiking sticks and leg braces, thanks to the strength in her quads. And, thanks to support from the High Fives Foundation in Truckee, Calif., which sponsors athletes with injuries and which has paid for some of her rehabilitation, Georgiana returned to the slopes over spring break, skiing upright with the aid of long forearm equipment. At Stanford, she'll study to be a doctor, with a goal to return to Craig Hospital as a physician who'll treat other injured youths who, though they may have, like Georgiana, at first believed their life was over, will learn they have "a unique role ... enabling the advancement of society."

MITCHELL HARVEY
Age: 17
Hometown: North Little Rock
High School: North Little Rock High School
Parents: David and Susan Harvey
College plans: Likely Mississippi State University, chemical engineering

Mitchell Harvey is a big fan of the periodic table. "The elements are amazing little things," he wrote in his Academic All-Star essay. "They make up everything, yet we hardly see them in their pure form in everyday life." Mitchell decided they needed more exposure, so he started collecting examples of the elements and taking them to school for his peers and teachers to see. He extracted helium from an abandoned tank on the side of the road. He found zinc in wheel weights, grew crystals of copper with electrolysis and made bromine, which he describes as "a blood-red liquid that fumes profusely," from a "crude" homemade distillation setup and pool chemicals. Though you can buy sodium readily, Mitchell made his by melting drain cleaner (sodium hydroxide) with a blowtorch and then passing a current through it, separating the mixture into sodium metal, oxygen and water. His parents were OK with the procedure, he says, because he wore a Tyvek suit, three pairs of gloves, safety goggles and a face shield. While on a college visit in California last summer, Mitchell toured Griffith Observatory in Los Angeles and was impressed by the large periodic table display exhibit there. So he decided to build one for North Little Rock High. He got money from the school's alumni group, the Wildcat Foundation, to pay for the supplies necessary to construct the 9-foot-by-6-foot display. He hopes to have it completed in the next two weeks and fill it with examples of elements he has collected, though he may need additional funding to pay for other elements. No. 1 in a class of 687, Mitchell scored a perfect 36 on the ACT. He's also an Eagle Scout, and led a project to plant 800 native hardwood seedlings at Toltec Mounds Archeological State Park. After college, Mitchell said, he might start his own waste remediation business. "The business model I would be going for would be taking some byproduct that's hazardous and turning it into something useful."

CARSON MOLDER
Age: 18
Hometown: Mabelvale
High school: Bryant High SCHOOL
Parents: Kevin and Ruby Molder
College plans: University of Arkansas

Not everybody plays the mellophone and likes to draw up better interstate exchanges, but Carson Molder does both. The University of Arkansas Honors College-bound student, No. 1 in his class, likes to create three-dimensional schemes in his head, and has been creating road designs since he was young. But as a musician who plays the French horn in his school's orchestra and the mellophone in the Legacy of Bryant marching band, and who has won a band scholarship in addition to his Honors College reward to the UA, he said that one day he may be an audio engineer. "I'm going to put things together and see what sticks," he said of his future. Meanwhile, Carson said the internet has been his Nina, Pinta and Santa Maria, taking him to new places that he otherwise could not get to. "I can count on my hands the number of times I have set foot outside Arkansas," Carson wrote in an essay for the Arkansas Times. But with the internet, "I can gaze into the redwood forests of California and the skyscrapers of New York City without leaving my desk." Without the internet, he said in a phone interview, "I would not be at the top of my class." Carson added, "It's not going to replace going out and visiting these things, but if you're a kid and don't have the money to go out, you can visit Yellowstone." Carson, who describes himself as "really ambitious," is looking forward to studying with Dr. Alan Mantooth, the director of the UA National Center for Reliable Electric Power Transmission. The UA, he said, "will provide me the tools" he'll need to succeed in graduate school, which he hopes will be Stanford University.

OLIVIA LANGER
Age: 18
Hometown: Jonesboro
High school: Brookland High School
Parents: Kelly Webb and Jonathan Langer
College plans: University of California, Santa Barbara, chemistry

You might think that a student who is No. 1 in her class and a National Merit finalist with nary a B on her high school transcript might not consider one of her greatest achievements her selection as her high school's drum major three years in a row. But here's the thing: Schoolwork comes easy to Olivia Langer. "I never had to work hard," she told us. In fact, her style of learning is "conversation-based," she said; she enjoys "debate without argument." But music was different: "I struggled at points, and had to put in extra work to be good." Her selection as drum major was "something I know I've worked for," she said, and she has enjoyed the responsibilities that come with it. "I like to take care of people. The band calls me band mom," she added. Beside numerous academic awards, Olivia also earned a 2017 state Horatio Alger scholarship for students who have overcome great obstacles. Hers, Olivia said, was financial: She's always had a place to stay and food to eat, but she hasn't been able to afford academic programs. "Honestly, I wasn't able to visit any of the colleges I applied to," she said. So she will see the UC Santa Barbara campus for the first time when she arrives this fall. She's considering a double major in chemistry and anthropology; she's interested in the evolutionary side of anthropology, and plans to seek graduate and post-graduate degrees.

On a visit to Hanamaki, Japan, with her school, Rebecca Parham noticed that once a month all the citizens would clean the front of their homes and shops. Folks would give each other gifts, too. "It was clear people tended to think for the whole," she said. "I thought that was really nice." An avid chemist, Rebecca did not just improve her Japanese on the trip, she brought those lessons of helping the community back to Arkansas. Her work has been at the intersection of heady science and community impact. In her robotics club, she noticed that girls were less likely to participate. "I decided that was not OK," she said. So, she designed a day with LEGO kits to encourage women to pursue STEM education. That desire to make an impact goes beyond school, too. For her senior project, Rebecca designed a test for homebuyers to see if meth had been cooked on their property (yes, meth). Her parents, on hearing of this project choice, asked her to "please explain a little bit further ... ." Here's the gist: The method of meth production in rural areas has shifted to something called the Birch reduction; older testing kits would no longer work. But Rebecca thought she could produce one that could. She designed a flame test. It finds lithium compounds left behind. The process of invention was "definitely frustrating," Rebecca said, but you "learn things you never thought of before." Rebecca did not plan to spend senior year in her dorm late at night "searching online" how to identify meth production, but she has a driving curiosity toward science and how it "connects to the world." She hopes to work in renewable energy — to be part of the global community, from Japan to Arkansas — making the world a nice place in which to live.

GRANT ROBINSON

Parents: Eric and Lisa Robinson College plans: University of Arkansas

Grant Robinson's father is a cardiologist, and Grant long figured he would follow in his dad's footsteps. But now he's not so sure. Last summer, he was selected, among thousands of applicants from around the world, to participate in a Stanford University summer engineering program. He got to experience a taste of college life, to take advantage of Stanford's decked-out labs and to tour the area to see results of civil engineering. The most memorable part of the program? Grant's small group built a Rube Goldberg machine — a complicated gadget that performs a simple task in a convoluted way — that, by Grant's estimation, was "the most complex and aesthetically pleasing" in the program. It included an electromagnet the group handmade and chemical reactions triggered by the machine. Grant's academic achievements are the byproduct of a natural curiosity. He said he spends what little free time he has exploring YouTube, trying to figure out the way the world works. Another influence: His father, who pulled himself out of poverty to become a doctor, has always instilled in him the importance of hard work. The message clearly stuck. Grant is second in his class of 263, with a 4.27 GPA. He scored a 35 on the ACT. He's a Presidential Scholar. His classmates voted him most likely to receive the Nobel Prize. He also participated in Project Unify (now known as Unified Champion Schools), an effort by the Special Olympics to get young people with and without special needs to come together for activities. Grant helped plan a basketball tournament as part of the project. In the fall, he'll be rooting on the Razorbacks at the University of Arkansas.

Whatever you were doing by your senior year in high school, chances are you probably hadn't already authored a book, much less a book on the complicated intersection of taxation and politics. John Snyder has, though. His book, "The Politics of Fiscal Policy," explores the political aspects of economics, including the pros and cons of various governmental tax schemes and their effect on government spending. It's for sale on Amazon right now. "It's pretty concise," John said, "but I wanted a way to express all my ideas in economic terms. That was a great way to do that." A history buff who serves as vice president of his class, John has a stunning 4.49 GPA and is ranked first in his class of 129. Though he wanted to be a lawyer when he was younger, his plan now is to go into investment banking. "Ultimately I want to have my own hedge fund — this thing called an activist hedge fund — and eventually I want to be actively involved in politics, whether that's in the midst of my business career or after ... . I'd love to run for public office one day." At Cornell University, John will be studying industrial and labor relations, a field that marries his love of multiple subjects. "Basically it ties in business, law, economics and history all into sort of one degree," he said. "You can do limitless things [with the degree]. Some people go into law school, some go into banking, some go to politics. That's why I chose that degree." John said his philosophy is that we have only a limited amount of time on earth, and so we should try to make the most of our lives. "I think there are a lot of things I can do to change the way things currently are in society, whether it's related to business or in academia or public policy," he said. "If I don't play a role in that and I'm not striving to do my best, I would feel like I'm wasting my potential."

Benton High School's Big Man on Campus — No. 1 in his class, captain of the football team, an AP Scholar, straight As — can add to his resume the fact that he helped build his home. Preston, his two brothers and his mother bounced around a bit after her divorce, from Texas to Arkansas, living with grandparents and friends, Preston said. Then the family was selected by Habitat for Humanity, and he and his brothers pitched in to build their house. "It was the first place I could truly call home and it allowed me the stability I needed to grow into the kind of student I am today," he wrote in his essay for the Arkansas Times. Preston, who also helped build a school outreach group called SERVE to help new or struggling students, also credits sports for giving him purpose. He recently volunteered to trade in the pigskin for a basketball, joining a team that played boys at the Alexander Juvenile Detention Center. "It was an awesome experience," Preston said in a phone interview. "We were a little bit nervous at first" at the detention center, he said, but the team enjoyed the game — even though they lost to the Alexander team, formed to reward inmates with good behavior. "They practice every day," Preston said. Preston has received a $70,000 Honors College scholarship at Fayetteville. He won't be playing football with the Razorbacks. Instead he is thinking of following a pre-med track that will lead him to sports medicine. He plans to go Greek, as well.

Karina Bao embraces complexity. The Central High School valedictorian (in a class of 636) is a member of the school's back-to-back state champion Ethics Bowl Team, for which she said she spent hours "researching, discussing and sometimes even arguing" case studies. Unlike debate, she said Ethics Bowl is "really about the back-and-forth and considering different caveats and nuances and considerations" in issues ranging from local food to gender identity. As president of the school's Brain Club, she leads discussions on brain diseases, disorders and anatomy. It's a role for which she's more than qualified: She placed first in the U.S. Brain Bee, a youth neuroscience competition in which contestants answer questions about anatomy and make diagnoses based on patient actors. Placing No. 1 in the U.S. competition landed Karina a trip to Copenhagen, Denmark, to the International Brain Bee, which happened to coincide with a Federation of International Neuroscientists conference, where Karina got to talk to scientists from all over the world about their groundbreaking research. She placed fifth in the international competition. A perennial outstanding delegate winner at Model United Nations competitions, Karina said Model U.N. has helped her to "not be scared of the complexity and interconnectedness of pressing issues we face today." In her spare time, Karina volunteers on the oncology wing of Baptist Hospital. "You don't get to do much," she said. "But at least we get to talk to people and help them with whatever they need and be there to listen." In her Academic All-Stars essay, Karina echoed the same drive for understanding: "The stories other people share with me become not my own when I retell them, but a part of humanity's collective spirit to understand each other. We grow from hours of listening and crying, to empathize, to have the strength and openness to pop each successive layer of the protective bubble that keeps us from seeing the very world in which we reside."

Though he grew up landlocked, far from the deep blue sea, Greenwood High School standout Bryce Cohea knew from an early age that he wanted to be a marine biologist. To reach that goal, Bryce had to start early. "In the ninth grade," he wrote in his Academic All-Stars essay, "I began planning out all my classes for the next four years. I wanted to graduate top of my class, and in order to do that I would need to take every advanced placement class and get an A in every class." That's exactly what he did, too, making nothing less than a perfect grade in every class for his entire high school career. With a 4.25 GPA and a rank of No. 1 in his class of 275, Bryce has volunteered extensively with the Salvation Army and collected shoes for the homeless; he helps unload trucks and stock shelves at the food bank at his church. A National Merit semifinalist, he also has the distinction of having scored the first perfect ACT score of 36 in Greenwood High School history. "I've honestly been a good test-taker," he said. "The first time I took it, I got a 34. After that, I got the test back and I worked on whatever I missed. After a few more tries, I got a 36." Bryce was still deciding on which university to attend when we spoke to him, but he definitely plans to study science. The subject has always interested him, he said. "I'm planning on majoring in biology and then specializing after that," he said.

Imani Gosserand has a journal in which she organizes the many moving parts of her life — competitive gymnastics, AP classes, computer science, Young Democrats, volunteering — into lists. Personal stuff is in there, too: bucket lists, remembrances. The journal combines the creative and the organized; it is problem-solving with an artful flare, which is how Imani operates. "I really like being able to create something of my own," she said of computer science. At a camp at Stanford University, in California, her team won the competition to program a car. Imani, not surprisingly, is good at math: She learned multiplication at age 4 and went on to skip two grades. Imani thinks schoolwork is fun. "We had a huge packet of homework problems we had to do over one of our breaks," she said. "And no one else was excited about it except for me. I was like 'Oh, I'm so excited to do all these problems!' " She brings that enthusiasm for problem-solving to bigger issues, as well. "I feel like there are so many opportunities for me because our world relies on technology, so I think I could go into any field," she said. She's excited to explore and see where she can help. "I want to meet people from around the world and hear different perspectives."

C.J. Fowler has long been around Democratic politics. His stepfather is former Arkansas Attorney General Dustin McDaniel. But C.J. said he decided to become more politically involved himself after he came out as gay. "The situation that I'm in is not great," he said. "People are not always accepting. But it's on me if I want to try to change that and make it better for the people who come after me. I have to make sure that my community and all marginalized communities have a seat at the table, because far too often a bunch of old gray white guys are making policies that hurt everyone else." The student body president of Central High, C.J. said he's tried to move the student council, a glorified dance committee, toward advocacy and activism for students throughout the district, whose future is being decided by those "people sitting in dark rooms." He said students too often get left out of the conversation about the district "because we're too young to have opinions. But we're not; we're living it every day." C.J. has been a fixture at Little Rock School District public comment periods. Though he can't point to any policy victories, he said at least LRSD Superintendent Mike Poore knows who he is and that he disagrees with him. C.J., who is also the executive director of Young Democrats of Arkansas, sees the backlash against President Trump as encouraging. "We're realizing that, if we're going to go all in for progressive values, we need to go all in." Rather than join the chorus of progressives in the Northeast after he finishes at Yale, C.J. says he wants to come back to Arkansas and possibly continue in politics. He admires state Sen. Joyce Elliott (D-Little Rock) and says he hopes if he ever holds office that he can follow her example.

"Growing up, I would always argue with everybody," Sophie Price said. Sometimes it was just to play devil's advocate, but mostly, it was because Sophie wants to find the capital-t Truth. Some of this digging for truth is class: seven AP course just this year and 12 during her time in high school. But, some of it is also talking with people, discussing issues. "The best way to improve your argument is to hear the counters, to hear the other side," Sophie said, and often she is willing to be convinced. She wants to do the right thing; she believes in justice. Which is why after college at Vanderbilt on a full scholarship, she wants to field arguments as a judge. "My whole life I've followed this ideal that you have to do what's right," Sophie said. "I want to be a judge so I can kind of decide that." Vanderbilt was the only school to which Sophie applied. She knew it was the right one for her. She arrived in Nashville on a rainy day in January, but through the gloom, she knew. "Something about the beautiful campus and the intelligent people and these varying perspectives just sold me immediately," she said. In a few months she was back at Vanderbilt for a camp where she studied law, and it cemented the deal. "There was something so exhilarating about being able to have this case and have the facts and kind of create your own narrative and really advocate for someone that drew me in," she said. Watch out, because "everything I do, I want to give it a 120 percent," Sophie said.

Fayetteville High School’s top student, with a perfect ACT score of 36, a 4.2 gradepoint average and the co-author of a paper on fractal self-assembly, is not just a bookworm. She’s a leader, her counselor Cindy Alley says, who shows “grit, motivation to succeed and a desire to help others.” She is also, Alley says, “a pure joy to be around.” In her essay for the Arkansas Times, Meagan talked about how she came to understand “ternary counters,” a base-3 method of counting in which only the digits 0, 1 and 2 are used. (Binary counters of 0 and 1 make up our computer’s “thinking,” as people with 10 fingers, we use base 10 to count.) Meagan, trying to make a “self-assembling ternary counter,” said she banged her head against “endless walls” for weeks. Then just after 1 a.m., she woke up with the answer. It’s a wise child who gives credit where credit is due: “I understood,” she wrote, “my mother’s advice about taking a break whenever I was upset.” Meagan’s paper on fractal self-assembly was published in the 22nd International Conference on DNBA Computing and Molecular Programing. She no longer lets frustration prevent her from solving a problem; sometimes, she’ll just sleep on it. Meagan told the Times she plans to attend a small conference this summer and then take some needed down time. She plans to use her degree from Fayetteville to pursue biomedical research.
          How the 2017 Arkansas legislature made life worse for you   
But it wasn't as bad as it could've been at the Capitol.

Arkansas's legislators were locked and loaded when they arrived for the 91st General Assembly this year, determined to get more guns into public places and take away voting and abortion rights, their evergreen attacks.

Thanks to the legislature, concealed weapons soon may be carried just about everywhere except Razorback games and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences. Unemployment benefits were cut, whistleblowers were silenced and charter schools were given advantages over regular public schools. Other legislation was symbolic but ugly, such as an act authored by Rep. Brandt Smith (R-Jonesboro) that aims to stop Sharia, or Islamic ecclesiastical law, from taking over Arkansas's court system.

Some of the silliest bills went nowhere, such as efforts by Sen. Jason Rapert (R-Conway) to wipe Bill and Hillary Clinton's names off the Little Rock airport, to indefinitely delay implementing the voter-approved medical marijuana program and to call a convention of the states to amend the U.S. Constitution to ban same-sex marriage. Anti-immigrant legislation that would have penalized colleges and cities with so-called "sanctuary" policies withered in committee. Rep. Smith, the sponsor of the bill targeting universities, warned that rogue professors might hide undocumented immigrants in their offices and then dump their human waste on campus in the dark of night; surprisingly, this argument did not persuade his colleagues. Rep. Kim Hendren (R-Gravette) proposed banning cell phones from public schools; later, he filed a bill prohibiting teachers from using books authored by leftist historian Howard Zinn. Neither gained traction.

What was good? A little. Conservatives tried to circumscribe the medical marijuana amendment with bans on smoking and edible products, among other roadblocks, but the worst of the anti-pot legislation stalled. Evidently reassured by Governor Hutchinson's promises to make the private option more conservative (read: stingier) down the line, the annual appropriation for Medicaid passed without a major fight — a relief for the 300,000-plus Arkansans receiving health insurance through Obamacare. Pushed by Hutchinson, the ledge directed some of Arkansas's tobacco settlement proceeds to expand a waiver program for the developmentally disabled, opening the door to services for some 500 to 900 desperate families stranded for years on a waitlist. At long last, the state will stop its reprehensible practice of celebrating Robert E. Lee's birthday simultaneously with Martin Luther King Jr. Day, a symbolic but important step forward that was championed by the governor.

Here's our survey of the damage:

GUNS
In Glock we trust

The biggest gun-related news this session was the passage and signing of House Bill 1249, now Act 562, which creates a new "enhanced carry" permit that will allow gun owners who have undergone eight hours of additional training — including active shooter training, with a curriculum still to be worked out by the Arkansas State Police — to carry a concealed handgun in many places previously forbidden under the state's concealed carry law, including the state Capitol, public colleges and universities, bars, churches and courthouses. Concealed carry in prisons, courtrooms and K-12 schools is still forbidden, and private property owners, including bars, churches and private colleges, can still prohibit firearms if they choose.

Sponsored by Rep. Charlie Collins (R-Fayetteville), the bill was a far piece from where it started by the time it was signed. Originally, Collins' bill would have solely mandated that public universities and colleges allow faculty and staff to carry concealed handguns. It was an attempt to push back against the state's public colleges and universities, which have steadfastly rejected Collins' and his colleagues' attempts to institute "campus carry" in the past. Amendments to HB 1249 soon pushed it several clicks further toward the broad "guns everywhere" approach favored by the National Rifle Association, and far beyond a potential shooting iron in a well-trained professor's briefcase. Now, anyone with the enhanced permit will be able to carry on a college campus, including into sometimes-contentious student and faculty disciplinary hearings and raucous college dorms.

The passage of the bill spawned some last minute scrambling when the Southeastern Conference expressed concerns about fans coming to college football games carrying heat, resulting in Act 859, a cleanup effort that prohibits concealed carry in college athletic venues. Also exempted by Act 859 were daycares, UAMS and the Arkansas State Hospital, an inpatient facility for the mentally ill. The bill also allows private businesses and organizations to ban concealed carry without posting a sign to that effect. If a private business decides to ban concealed carry without posting a sign, anyone caught carrying a concealed weapon on the premises can be ejected or told to remove their gun if they want to come back. If the concealed carrier repeats the infraction, they can be charged with a crime. Even after the purported cleanup, that still leaves a lot of places open to concealed carry unless those places set a policy forbidding the practice, including most hospitals, mental health facilities and off-campus high school and middle school sporting events. At the signing ceremony for HB 1249, Chris Cox, executive director of the NRA's Institute for Legislative Action, said, "We believe that if you have a legal right to be somewhere, and you're a law-abiding person, you ought to have a legal right to defend yourself." For the NRA, that means the right to be armed everywhere, any time, as long as you don't have a criminal record. Notice Cox didn't say anything about pesky permits or training.

Speaking of law-abiding persons, also of concern when it comes to concealed carry is Act 486. Under the law, the Arkansas State Police is now prohibited from establishing or amending any administrative rule that would revoke or suspend a concealed carry permit unless the holder of the permit was found to be in violation of a criminal offense. While not penalizing a person if they haven't committed a crime sounds like a good idea, the problem is that people can and do go off the rails for a multitude of reasons, many of which have nothing to do with a violation of the criminal code. Before the passage of Act 486, the State Police had broad latitude to revoke or suspend concealed carry permits for a number of reasons, including serious alcohol and drug abuse, dangerous mental illness, or a mental health professional's determination that a permit holder might be a threat to himself, his family or the public. With the passage of Act 486, though, a concealed carry holder who suffers a complete mental breakdown to the point of visual hallucinations can keep on packing right until the moment he or she is admitted at the State Hospital (thanks Act 859!), even if the person's family or a doctor asks the State Police to pull their permit. Ditto with people suffering from substance abuse issues, elderly dementia patients and those who hint they might be capable of suicide or homicide. Under the law, a permit can still be revoked or suspended if the person is caught carrying into a prohibited place like a courtroom or jail, but as seen above, the list of places where handguns are prohibited is dwindling by the year. Otherwise, thanks to Act 486, we just have to wait until that person commits a crime. By then, it's too late.

In the What Could Have Been column, we have HB 1630, by Rep. Clarke Tucker (D-Little Rock), which would have created the misdemeanor offense of "negligently allowing access to a firearm by a child" if an owner failed to secure a loaded gun or left it in a place a child could easily access. Though the bill had exemptions for hunting, sport shooting and use of firearms on a farm and had a sliding scale of penalties, with incidents involving the death or serious injury of a child at the top of the list, it went nowhere.

EDUCATION

Traditional schools took licks, but the worst was kept at bay.

The single worst education bill passed in 2017 was probably Act 542, sponsored by Alan Clark (R-Lonsdale), which requires school districts to sell or lease "unused or underutilized" facilities to competitor charter schools. Charters already had right of first refusal in the event a district decides to sell a building — but after Act 542 goes into effect this summer, a charter can force a district to sell or lease a building, even if the district doesn't want to do so. If a different entity — a nonprofit, say, or a clinic or a business — wants to buy an unoccupied school building instead, that's too bad. Act 542 requires a district to hold on to unused buildings for two years, just in case a charter comes along and wants the facility for itself.

Clark pointed to a situation a few years ago in which the Helena-West Helena School District refused to sell a vacant elementary to KIPP Delta, a charter. But there are good reasons why a district wouldn't want to hand over an asset to a direct competitor: Charter networks tend to weaken districts by bleeding away higher-performing students and public money, and they often enjoy advantages their traditional public school counterparts do not. As some opponents of the bill pointed out, the new law is tantamount to forcing Walmart to sell a store to Target. That's why school superintendents across the state fought the bill and convinced no small number of Republicans to join Democrats in opposing it. In the end, though, it passed the House on a 53-32 vote. Republican legislators also rejected proposals by Democrats Sen. Joyce Elliott and Rep. Clarke Tucker — both from Little Rock, which is seeing unchecked charter growth at the expense of traditional public schools — to impose fairer rules on charters.

Thankfully, the legislature turned down an even worse proposal. HB 1222 by Rep. Jim Dotson (R-Bentonville) proposed a convoluted scheme to divert millions of dollars away from the public coffers (by means of a tax credit to wealthy donors) and toward private schools in the guise of "education savings accounts" to be used for student tuition. A school voucher plan in all but name, the bill would have been devastating to public education. Dotson eventually scaled back the legislation to a pilot program with a four-year sunset, allowing a Senate version of the bill to win passage in that chamber — but many Republicans remain fond of their local school districts, and it narrowly failed in the House.

Meanwhile, legislators expanded an existing voucher program, the Succeed Scholarship. Created in the 2015 session, it uses public tax dollars to pay private school tuition for a limited number of K-12 students with special needs. Parents are required to waive their child's civil rights protections under the federal Individuals with Disabilities Education Act. In the past, the scholarship was open only to kids with an Individualized Education Program, or IEP; now, foster children living in group homes will also be eligible, thanks to Act 894 by Rep. Kim Hammer (R-Benton). Act 327 by Rep. Carlton Wing (R-North Little Rock) will allow a nonaccredited private school to participate, as long as the school has applied for accreditation. And, the appropriation for the Succeed Scholarship rose from $800,000 to $1.3 million — an increase of 63 percent — potentially allowing as many as 200 students statewide to participate.

That bump is especially notable alongside the meager 1 percent increase in the state's overall K-12 education budget for the next two years — far less than the 2.5 percent boost recommended by legislative staff tasked with determining what constitutes "adequate" school funding. A bit more money will be directed to teacher pay and special education, and pre-kindergarten will see an overdue $3 million increase, so the money situation could be worse. Still, with state revenue squeezed hard by tax cuts, and private and charter schools knocking at the door, traditional public schools are clearly not the General Assembly's top priority.

On other fronts, school legislation was a mixed bag. Elliott's Act 1059, will limit the use of out-of-school suspensions and expulsions for students in grades K-5 — a much-needed reform — but her bid to end corporal punishment failed in committee. (Rural Arkansas still loves the paddle.) One of the better education bills to pass this session was Elliott's Act 1039 which gives teeth to a 2013 law (also by Elliott) requiring dyslexia screening and intervention. Its reporting requirements and enforcement mechanism hopefully will force districts to deliver better reading interventions to dyslexic students. A major accountability bill developed by the state Education Department, Act 930, will overhaul how schools are monitored by the state, though it's too soon to say how the changes will play out. Act 478 by Rep. Bruce Cozart (R-Hot Springs), will require high school students to pass a civics test before graduating; an attempt by Rep. John Walker (D-Little Rock) to impose the same requirement on legislators and state agency heads received a cold reception. A bill by Rep. Mark Lowery (R-Maumelle), now Act 910, will end September school elections and require them to be held concurrent with the November general or spring primary election date. That could spell trouble for future millage votes.

Finally, there's higher education: "Campus carry" dominated the news, but a major change in funding may be just as consequential. Act 148, which originated with the governor's office, creates a funding formula for colleges and universities that ties state money to metrics like graduation rate. HB 1518, now Act 563, a worthy bill by Rep. James Sturch (R-Batesville) requires the Arkansas Higher Education Coordinating Board to create an action plan for addressing sexual assault on college campuses.

TAXES

Some help for the working poor and lots of punting.

Give modest credit to Governor Hutchinson. In the 2013 and 2015 legislative sessions, Republican legislators pushed a massive cut on taxes on capital gains and reduced the income tax burden on all but the working poor. This session, Hutchinson provided some relief at the lower end of the tax bracket. Hutchinson pushed through a $50 million tax cut, directed at households with a taxable income of less than $21,000. The cut is misleading, though, as it targets taxable income, which is often far less than salary or adjusted gross income. In fact, Arkansas Advocates for Children & Families pointed out that 48 percent of the overall $50 million cut will go to taxpayers in the top 40 percent of earners, while only 5 percent will go to those making less than $18,000 per year.

Establishing a refundable state Earned Income Tax Credit, tied to the federal EITC, would have been considerably more beneficial to the lower 40 percent of Arkansas earners, who often have no income tax liability, but pay a large share of their income in sales tax. An EITC would have provided a more substantial boost to the working poor at less cost than Hutchinson's cut. Rep. Warwick Sabin (D-Little Rock) and Sen. Jake Files (R-Fort Smith) were behind the EITC proposal, which historically has bipartisan appeal, but they couldn't get support from Hutchinson or enough other legislators.

Hutchinson also supported legislation that exempted all military retirement pay and survivor benefits from state income taxes. The first $6,000 of military retirement pay had been exempt previously. Since most veterans aren't career soldiers and eligible for a pension, the exemption will leave out many veterans (again, an EITC would have been a better avenue). But few politicians on either side of the aisle were going to stand in the way of helping veterans — even though Hutchinson unconscionably larded the measure with unrelated tax hikes. The legislation offset the eventual $13.4 million cost of the exemption by raising the sales tax on candy and soda. Completely unrelated to veterans' retirement income, the bill provided a $6 million tax cut on soft drink syrup, which it paid for by taxing unemployment benefits and digital downloads. So, veterans with pensions got a bump and corporate interests got significant help, while folks downloading books and movies, as well as people in between jobs, got screwed.

In the "could have been worse" column, more credit for Hutchinson: He held at bay lawmakers from his party such as Sen. Bart Hester (R-Cave Springs) who wanted to cut $100 million or more in taxes — threatening essential state services in the process — by creating a commission to consider the future of tax policies in the state.

The commission will have to consider two issues the General Assembly punted on. A bill that would have required out-of-state online retailers to collect sales tax on purchases made by Arkansans stalled in the House, with several Republicans decrying the proposal as a tax increase even though Arkansans already are required to pay the tax by law (few do because it requires self-reporting.) Still, Amazon said it would voluntarily begin collecting sales tax on Arkansas customers beginning in March.

Arkansas in recent years has had the fastest growing prison population in the country, fueled largely by parole violators returning to prison. Swift and certain sanctioning is expected to free up as many as 1,600 prison beds and save the state as much as $30-$40 million.

The law also seeks to divert people who commit nuisance offenses because they are high on drugs or having a mental health crisis in public from jail or prison.

The law mandates the creation of three such units, but $5 million earmarked in the state budget for the operation of the facilities, paired with significant additional federal money the state expects to draw from Medicaid, could allow for several more CSUs to open. The locations of the CSUs have not yet been selected, but Craighead, Pulaski and Sebastian counties are thought to be leading candidates. Finally, Act 423 also require
