    Customer Resource Management (CRM) is THE way to increase sales and grow business.

    CRM is a buzz word in sales today. The reality is you must manage both customers AND prospects.

          Spreadsheet Clear Undo/Redo History   

Hi Kendo UI Team

I'm trying to customize my kendo spreadsheet and I am trying to find a way to clear a user's undo/redo history on a button click.  I also want to do this without losing the undo/redo functionality. I noticed that there is an undoRedoStack in $('#SpreadsheetName').data("kendoSpreadsheet")._workbook, but when I pop from this undoRedoStack it gives an error when the user tries to undo/redo again.

Is there a way to clear the undo history in the spreadsheet?

 

Many thanks,

Jeff

How to Find the Best Android App for Mileage Tracking?

Despite your excellent accounting and bookkeeping skills, you may find it intimidating to track the business mileage when driving your car. This is where you need an efficient mile tracking app that can manage your mileage logs and save you from the IRS audit trap. An app can automatically track the miles covered for business purposes. When looking for a mile app, there are many factors that you should consider for making the right selection.They include:Customization of Business Mileage Rates:In the USA, the IRS or Internal Revenue Service issues the standard mileage rates that are used for calculation of business deduction of a vehicle used for business purposes. When these rates are used for deduction, you can’t include the vehicle-related expenses like repairs, maintenance, and registration charges in the calculation. Hence, many businesses use their own business mileage rates. To manage the deductions according to these rates, you need a mile app that allows customizable rates for mileage tracking.The Calculation of Mileage:The mileage tracking apps use GPS or Global Positioning Satellite system for tracking your exact location and distance travelled. An accurate app will use GPS coordinates to log this distance covered for the business trips in a precise manner. The app will log this complete data and compute the total miles traveled by you. This distance will be multiplied by the mileage rate for tax deductions or for employee reimbursement. When looking for a mile app, prefer an automatic tracking system to minimize the hassles.Automatic Triggers:There are some advanced Android-based apps that use automated triggers to start and stop the logging of distance traveled during business trips. If there is a Bluetooth device in your vehicle, your Android device will automatically start tracking the mileage whenever this device is paired to the vehicle’s Bluetooth. Also, these apps allow mileage tracking through the current charging state of your device. For instance, if your Android device is plugged into the vehicle’s charger, the app will start tracking the miles automatically. They reduce inaccuracies in the system.Accurate Log Management:An app can effectively track the business mileage and record this data at a centralized portal. Now, it is essential to manage this data for claiming deductions. Here, you need a system that allows exporting of this data to a spreadsheet. This sheet should be prepared in accordance with the specifications of employer or IRS. If you are a business owner, you must prefer an app with a rich account management system. An advanced app can synchronize the varied travel logs to manage this data on the web and prepares rich reports in a prescribed format.These are the factors to keep in mind when looking for a mile app to claim tax deductions.See More

          Custom Bom Export to excel template   

Hello All! I have been gaining a lot of knowledge from using this forum but I need some help exporting an Inventor BOM.

 

My employer uses a standard excel template that all manufactured parts are entered into. (We use this for standard or custom jobs). I have attached that template here. The goal is to loop through the top level assembly and place the description in the G cells starting at G4, the Rev starting at F4, and the PN starting at E4. The top level assy will be made up of subassemblies (all I-Assemblies) whose node names at the top level are 101,102,103, etc. The program has to loop thru 101, enter the node name in the column header, enter all the qtys for that section in the j column, then 102 and put the parts in K column, etc. If a bracket is used in 101 and 102 then the program has to look thru the spreadsheet and rather than enter it on a new line, it needs to place the qty in the correct column.

 

My first stab was to look in the help files. I found the loop portion that looks through all BomRows one item at a time. I see the ItemQuantity variable but can't seem to access it. For now I was just trying to see if I could get a simple message box to appear. (error: object required. ---didn't I declare the object a few lines before?) See bolded below.

 

Public Sub BOMQuery()

Any help is appreciated. (I don't expect anyone to write the code for me, I would rather get bits and pieces and stitch it together myself.) The excel portion I have no idea what to do there. I have not written any code to interact with excel from Inventor.

Manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler Profiles Commence CRM Leader

Tinton Falls, NJ -- (ReleaseWire) -- 01/31/2007 -- 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.

Customer Relationship Management (CRM) systems allow businesses to capture, track, and manage vital customer information. The explosive growth of CRM technology has attracted numerous companies, however the industry has been plagued by vendors offering overly complex solutions to solve basic business problems. "This has resulted in a low adoption rate and failed customer expectations" says Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation. "The concern of most businesses today is not the lack of technology, but rather how they can leverage technology to improve their internal processes and ultimately their bottom line."

For the past ten years the role of maximizing lifetime value of customers has dramatically changed with the implementation and utilization of CRM. Generic CRM solutions have failed, and core issues of leveraging technology to improve internal processes and ultimately the bottom line, are still at the forefront of the CRM efficacy discussion. Larry Caretsky, CEO of Commence Corporation, a leading CRM provider, is the software executive profiled in The Software Professional Journal by manufacturing Journalist TR Cutler. The entire feature can be read at http://www.softwareprofessionalpeople.com/article1.htm.

Caretsky's company has been providing software solutions to growing businesses for seventeen years and has witnessed all the trends in CRM. With this vast experience, Caretsky discovered long ago that rapidly deployable, cost effective solutions were the only way for customers to quickly and affordably reap the benefits of their investment.

Few CRM firms have taken the unique approach to meeting the key objectives businesses by streamlining internal business processes, improving sales processes, and delighting customers. Caretsky refers to this proven implementation methodology as S.T.E.P., the System Technology Execution Process. S.T.E.P begins with the fundamental knowledge that most customers must first deal with the problem of data capture, data consolidation and data management. Typically, vital customer data is spread throughout the organization in contact managers, back office systems and spreadsheets. Employees spend a significant amount of time trying to determine where or who in the organization has the information they need to address customer inquiries. The inability to gain access to a complete customer profile only serves to rob people of precious time that should be spent selling to or servicing customers. Management is clearly aware of this and they realize that in order to become a more efficient sales and service organization they must get the right information in the hands of the right people at the right time.

"Many companies are entering the CRM market with generic solutions designed under a one-size fits all approach," says Caretsky. "Their business model is to try and sell the same solution to as many companies as possible regardless of the industry their in. This may have worked ten years ago, but it won't today. You simply cannot expect to sell your solution to a bank then walk across the street and sell it to an insurance company. You have to respect the complexity of their businesses and be prepared to understand and address their unique business requirements."

Commence has taken a unique approach to meeting these objectives beginning with the fundamental knowledge that most small to mid-size manufacturers and distributors must first address the problem of data capture, data consolidation and data sharing. The issue they face is that vital customer information is spread throughout their organization in contact managers, back office systems and excel spreadsheets and is often difficult to attain. Employees spend a significant amount of time trying to determine where or who in the organization has the information they need to address customer inquiries. This robs sales and service people of precious time during their day.

          RE: STAAD FOUNDATION ADVANCED DON'T SHOW THE RESULTS (ALL RESULTS ARE IN 0 VALUE)   

Mr.Gonzalez,

Some of the key data of this model appears to have been lost when you last saved it. Here are the details:

  1. The model contains no column positions. Column positions are the column base locations where the loads from the superstructure act on the foundation.
  2. The model has load cases 100 to 227 but all of them are empty load cases, meaning, they do not contain any load items.
  3. It contains a mat foundation job, but due to the absence of column positions, that job does not contain a mat boundary or mesh.

Hence, there is very little in this model that can be used. If you have an earlier version of this model which you can send us, we can look into that and see if the data can be extracted and successfully processed.

How did you create this model? Based on the titles of the empty load cases, it looks like it may have been done either by launching STAAD Foundation Advanced (SFA) from within STAAD.Pro, or by importing the data from either a STAAD.Pro model or from a spreadsheet. It would be easier for you to create the data afresh using one of these methods. Alternatively, if you can send us the STAAD.Pro model, we can generate the SFA file and get back to you with our findings.

We would also recommend that you install and run the latest version of SFA which is 08.00.01.33 which was released at the begining of January this year. A new build of SFA is due to be released shortly and it will have a number of improvements made since the January release.


          Grenfell fire: volunteers help residents compile death toll   

Frustration grows at failure of authorities to say who survived, who perished and who is still missing, 17 days on

Grenfell Tower survivors are becoming increasingly frustrated at the authorities’ failure to release the full list of names of the dead, and have turned to independent experts to try to establish an accurate picture of the number of casualties and survivors of the fire.

In the absence of an official list, residents are relying on volunteer demographers and data experts to help them compile estimates of the death toll, filling names into online floorplans and spreadsheets, with data colour-coded according to who is confirmed dead, presumed dead, still unaccounted for or survived.

ISTE’s NETS•T Refreshed Roll-Out

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

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

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

Dan Edelson, Getting out of the Classroom with Technology

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

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

Chris Dede, Ubiquitous Computing

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

Cheryl Lemke

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

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

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

This presentation is available from the “Archive of Articles” on NovemberLearning.com. This presentation is available at Digital Farm.

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

Vocabulary of the Web: Students need to learn information resources. This type of information is available on http://novemberlearning.com/blc

By adding site:en to Google searches, you will only get sites with an English country code. To get Turkey-based sites, type site:tr.

Adding view:timeline to a search, you can access the most recent information about a given search term.

Type link:http://Wikipedia.com to find out how many links exist to that particular site.

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

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


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

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

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

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

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

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

Terry Cavanaugh, GIS, Google Maps, and More for Literacy Projects

http://books.google.com

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

          Data Visualization   
There has been a shift in how data is consumed in the last 5 to 8 years. Appropriately so, I believe the consuming data in context and particularly the proper use of process based portals has changed how the typical end-user believes they should be able to find information. Over the next 5 to 8 years I believe the contextual process based mini-portals will become the norm for consumption (some call these mashups). During that time I believe another shift will occur and that is how we view the data that is now gathered in one place. Data Visualization is a term I take a little bit of leeway with. People usually stove pipe data visualization but to me it can mean any image or model that is driven or associated with data. By the way, I like to remind people that this is not a new thing either. The GIS community has been doing this for a decade. The spreadsheet folks have been doing this for longer than that with its charting and mapping capabilities. We were even doing this in Lotus Notes back in the early to mid 90s with hotspot images front-ending a database application.

The reason that I think data visualization is that next wave is for two reasons. The first reason is that for complex processes it is the simplest means for consuming mashed up data. Take a product like OpenView or Tivoli. No one really wants to wade through all of the different log files, patch information, system components, etc… they just want to look at a network topology map and see if the box/line/etc… is green or red. In these types of instances, there is data overload when simply monitoring the exception and quickly understanding what that exception means in context is the most important task. The second reason is that we are getting a huge wave into the workforce of users in the US that are gamers. Gamers are use to data visualization. Go play WoW, EQ2, Half Life, Vanguard, CoH, etc… and you soon get an idea of the vast amount of data that is contained in a world of nothing but visualization. Spend some time in Sims online or Second Life and you see the same model alive and well in a virtual but not game specific community. These users will demand data visualization because they understand the power of it. Being a gamer for so long, I might be biased on this but personally I am deeply excited.

For me I see data visualization as the end to the document/record model we are so trapped in today and instead data could take any form. Think of it like nature in that data is the DNA that makes up the final organism (visualization). The visualization layers will become just as dynamic and will be able to take form based on the smallest component’s sequencing, function and placement. If you want to see someone that gets it, go check out www.bridgeborn.com Their Bridgeworks Engine/Platform shows just a piece of what they are capable of and just a pinhole for where this area is going but man what a sight and hope through that pinhole!!

          Consensus Big Board Update (April 6th, 2011)   
Time for the post-NCAA Tournament big board consensus. Lots of movement from the last one (to view all consensus boards from this season, follow this link).

          Odds Sheet Update - June 10th, 2010   
Odds sheet uploaded here and added to the side-bar.

Just to give a brief rundown, the Odds Sheet is my way of rating players. At the moment, there are seven weighted categories: Franchise Player (Fran), Recurring All-Star (R-AS), Fringe All-Star (F-AS), Solid Starter (SS), Fringe Starter (FS), Decent Bench Player (DBP), and Out of the League (Out). I'm thinking of adding an eighth called End of Rotation Player (or something of the sort) to bridge the gap from being a decent bench player (7th/8th man) and those who never really become more than a 9th/10th man.

Anyway, each player is given a numeric value for each category which is the percent chance I think the prospect will end up playing at that level during his peak years. That value is then multiplied by the weighted value given to each category (10, 4, 2, 1, 1/2, 1/4, and -1/3 respectively according to the list of 7 above). This Rating is then another tool I use to help me mold my Big Board because it's another way of showing how I truly feel about a player instead of just listing their strengths, weaknesses, and then attempting to judge upside and the likelihood they reach 100% of their potential, 75% of their potential, etc.

Hope you enjoy.
          Consensus Big Board Rankings 6-07-2010   
I finally got around to updating the latest Consensus Big Board rankings. I had been waiting for nbadraft.net and nba-draft.com to update their rankings; and since they both recently did... well... I could do my thing.

For those who are unaware, I take the Big Board rankings of the four major sites I look at for Big Boards (DX, nbadraft.net, nba-draft.com, and ESPN), then add in my own, and the average rankings make up the Consensus Big Board. This consensus gives everyone a better idea of where players may rank at the current point in time, and the database allows for all of us to see how a prospect's stock has fallen or risen as the days pass. The last update I did was May 2nd, and as you can see here (a link is also under the "Useful Files" tab on the sidebar), a lot of things have changed since then. The brief analysis of these rankings will be discussed below the fold.

There's usually a small group of prospects whose stocks make a significant increase during this time of the year, while many others see minor decreases in their stock as a result. Last year, Jonny Flynn seemed to be the main prospect moving up. This year? It seems like Luke Babbitt is the main benefactor, while Avery Bradley and Paul George also are reaping the benefits.

The reasons? Measurements are normally the first step in a guy having his stock raised. Babbitt impressed with his athletic measurements, and his performance in the shooting drills also helped his cause. Both he and George played in the relatively obscure WAC, so those with relatively little knowledge of them came away moving them up their boards as a result. Bradley, even though he played for a major school, still benefited because he measured out taller and longer than expected, while also performing as expected in the drills.

Individual or group workouts also play a big role in people moving up this time of year. The reports coming out of San Antonio and Chicago were big boosts to George's stock, as he supposedly wowed NBA personnel at both workouts when going against another great prospect, Xavier Henry. Bradley has also done the same against a group in Indiana, while Babbitt did the same in Milwaukee.

Finally, how a player interviews can make lasting impressions on teams and reporters alike. Babbitt and George are both seen as good interviewers. George recently had a piece written about him by DX, and also had a video of his workout and interview posted.

If you have done your homework, these results should not sway your rankings much... but in some cases you may have just not seen enough of a player so these things help you paint a picture of a player - for better or worse as these may not be indicative of how the player plays on the court nor give a good representation of a players athleticism or what a player truly thinks as they have been coached through these processes by their agents.

Stay tuned to see how these rankings continue to evolve up until draft night hits.
          NBA Lottery History   
So I wrote up this article for a Timberwolves forum two years back about how bad the Timberwolves luck has been in the lottery. I had used the DraftExpress Lottery History page to formulate all the odds for the #1 and #2 picks (the #2 pick odds had to be estimated for 1990-1993), and then went on to describe how unlucky the Timberwolves were.

Well today, I decided to do more than that. I have gone through and used that DX page to get the odds on every team for each season from 1990 to 2009 (check the starred rows on the sheets marked #1 and #2 for the %s), and then went through to describe how lucky or unlucky some of the teams have been. The results are after the jump.

There have been 14 different teams who have landed the #1 pick in the draft in the past 20 years. Four of those teams have been lucky enough to win the #1 pick two times (the Bulls, Clippers, Bucks, and Nets), while the Orlando Magic have been lucky enough to win it three times. Out of the remaining teams, the most unlucky as far as winning the lottery is concerned, are my beloved Minnesota Timberwolves - with a 77.5% chance that they should have won the lottery by now if all of this were to be done again. The Denver Nuggets were a close second at 75.5%, and the Memphis/Vancouver Grizzlies third at 72.6%.

Since there are quite a few drafts which were considered two player drafts, I did this again for the odds to get the 1st and 2nd picks. Ten teams have been unlucky enough to not land a top-2 pick in the past 20 years. One of those teams, the Lakers, hardly count in this type of measurement as they have been wildly successful and have had very low odds to claim a top pick the two times they have been in the lottery. The most unlucky of those teams? Again, the Minnesota Timberwolves at 96.1% chance that they should have been in the top-two by now. Next up are the Denver Nuggets at 93.2% and then the Sacramento Kings a noticeably distance back at 86.0%.

Moral of the story? The woeful Timberwolves are certainly due for some luck.

          Wow…have you seen this Hartford Courant Editorial?   

SqCapitolwithRays

(Please read and share the following July 28th  Hartford Courant editorial for an update on the CT state budget.  Send me your comments at Heather.Somers@cga.ct.gov)

Mr. Aresimowicz, Get The Democrats To The Capitol

It’s on you, Joe Aresimowicz.

For many months, the Democratic Speaker of the House of Representatives has known that the state was facing a multibillion-dollar problem. He knew legislators would have to make painful cuts and find creative and fair ways to raise revenues if they had a prayer of solving it.

And they had a deadline. The fiscal year ends Friday.

But now, after mustering zero workable solutions over the past few months and with only hours to go, Mr. Aresimowicz has refused to call for a vote on a reasonable stop-gap budget offered by the governor and supported by the Senate‘s Republican and Democratic leaders.

Why? Because, Mr. Aresimowicz said, a temporary solution isn’t good enough — but also because the Democrats are on vacation.

v”I believe my members are less than likely to hop on planes and leave their families at vacation places all over this country and other countries to come in and do a temporary fix,” he told reporters on Tuesday.

He refused to identify for The Courant those Democratic state representatives who chose to go on vacation at a critical time in one of the most serious budget crises the state has ever faced. Leaving town this week is a stunning dereliction of duty.

Mr. Aresimowicz and the rest of the House Democratic caucus are instead choosing to accept spending cuts so drastic that basic social safety nets for some of the state’s most vulnerable will be lost. Cuts to town aid will be so deep that local officials might have to recast their entire budgets. The move also puts the state’s shaky credit rating at further risk.

Apparently realizing that the legislature is incapable of finding its own elbows, Gov. Dannel P. Malloy earlier this week wisely offered legislators the option of passing a “mini-budget” for the next quarter that would allow for some new revenue (much of it already earmarked for certain programs but not yet spent). Without a budget, the governor can’t raise revenue or shift funds. He can only slash millions, cutting services for the sick and the poor and eviscerating school funding grants to towns.

The vote on the mini-budget would have to take place Thursday or Friday. If nothing passes by the end of Friday, the governor’s executive order budget goes into effect.

If Mr. Aresimowicz continues to refuse to call for a vote, the impacts will be felt immediately. It will eliminate services to some clients of the Department of Developmental Services and the Department of Mental Health and Addiction Services. Rental assistance will be slashed by millions. Funding for summer youth jobs will be completely eliminated.

School funding will see the biggest cuts if the legislature can’t come up with a budget before the fall. How big? Take West Hartford. In the last fiscal year, the city received $20.9 million in state funding for schools. Under the governor’s proposed executive order, West Hartford would receive $4.3 million. Simsbury, which received about $6 million last year, would get zero dollars.

Do the math.

The most frustrating thing is that through these past few months, the legislature wasted time debating and amending bills that didn’t stand a chance of becoming law, and leadership knew it. Mr. Aresimowicz placated members of his caucus by entertaining floor debate on bills such as marijuana legalization that were soon enough left to rot.

How could House Democrats have gone months without coming up with a workable, clear, full-spectrum solution to the state’s $5 billion budget shortfall? Did they not realize that that was their job? Or did their own internal politicking get in the way?

One Democratic effort to fashion a budget failed spectacularly in April when a 262-page detailed spending plan couldn’t even get a vote in the Democrat-controlled appropriations committee. In May, Democrats offered a one-page sketch of a plan, along with a spreadsheet containing more details. Since then, nary a peep from the party nominally in control of the legislature.

Others had their priorities in order.

The Senate and House Republicans, and Mr. Malloy, came up with actual spending plans. Their respective strengths and weaknesses are debatable (Mr. Malloy’s budget director Ben Barnes told The Courant’s editorial board that the House Republican’s plan contained “large pieces of baloney”), but that’s the point — they have offered something to debate.

What have House Democrats offered?

Shamefully little.

And now they refuse to vote on a measure that would at least keep some basic protections in place.

Mr. Barnes warned that if the legislature refused to vote on the mini-budget, there would be a “significant risk” of another bond rating downgrade from Wall Street. “They are paying close attention to what we are doing,” he said.

Mr. Aresimowicz’s failure to call for a vote, to say nothing of his failure to craft a complete budget proposal that was at least palatable to his own caucus, is an abrogation of a serious responsibility, and the consequences for the people of Connecticut are going to be profound.

It’s mystifying how legislators could be so cavalier about solving the budget problem, the most important thing they have to do.

Connecticut’s Democratic leaders need to ask themselves: Whom do you serve?

Mr. Aresimowicz, call for a vote.

          Comment on Link Text Boxes in MS Word by Jim Byrne   
This is a neat trick for "simple" content, i.e., text. I have not been able to get it to handle more complex content, I.e., continuing spreadsheets from a first to a second and a third text box, etc. What content, other than simple text, will this work for?
          Unleashing the Power of Google Apps   
Google Apps is one the latest challenges to Microsoft's dominance of productivity software on the desktop. A clear example of cloud computing, as all data created is stored on the Internet, Google apps includes applications for communications, including Gmail for electronic mail, Gtalk for instant messaging and Google calendar for organizing individuals schedules as well as sharing events, meetings and calendars with others; Google Docs, which can be used for creating documents, spreadsheets and presentations; The Start Page which is a repository for users to preview their electronic mail, calendars and other content and Google Sites which maintains related documents and other information in place are part of the series of applications for collaboration and publishing. Google Apps is available in Standard, Premier and Education Editions, the first and last being free and the Premier Edition costing $50 per head per user per year.

According to Google, 500,000 businesses have signed up to use Google Apps, although the breakdown between paid and free subscriptions is unavailable. Many organizations are apparently impressed by the lower costs compared to a traditional desktop application, that include purchase of the software itself, reduced support and storage costs as well as claims of faster learning curves.

In addition, evidence is rising that that Google may be shaking up the software productivity market sooner than had been anticipated. Gartner's research has revealed many top corporations using Google Apps, with at least 6% of large enterprise information technology personnel using a Google web-based application on a daily basis. Google's share of the productivity market is becoming quickly pervasive.

However, in general, Google Apps are generally not as powerful in terms of capabilities when compared to Microsoft's Office Suite. However, whereas Microsoft's products are installed on desktops, Google's applications facilitate mobile collaboration, given their accessibility from the Internet at any time and any place. This capability for mobile users is very much ahead of Microsoft's plans for the deployment of its applications over the web. Yet, the heart of the controversy lies in the number of paid subscriptions to the service, which Google is hesitant to reveal, making it reliant on its income from these applications from advertising on the free edition of Gmail.

The implications for Microsoft and the industry are somewhat apparent. Microsoft will most likely need to adjust the pricing of its Office Suite in order to acknowledge the presence of Google Apps in the marketplace. In addition, users of office productivity have much to gain with this competition. Both suites will continue to add features and improvements in order to gain customers over each other.

Related to the applications arena, Google is now trying to be the premier search engine for image searching. Google has developed an image-recognition technology, called Visual Rank, which reduces the number of irrelevant images returned in a search by 83%. The implications for better search relevancy mean faster clicking through web pages which means increased revenue for Google. Other start-ups are making attempts in this arena, yet do not have the ability to make overall breakthroughs that can improve upon Google's technology. Their technologies may tackle image searches specific to an industry rather than compete against Google's which is geared for the computer industry in general. The release of this new capability is yet to be disclosed.

          #40938: Add npm `package-lock.json` for npm v5.x   

npm v5 now by default generates a package-lock.json file

Some paraphrased notes from the announcement post: http://blog.npmjs.org/post/161081169345/v500

  • package-lock.json and npm-shrinkwrap.json are aware of each other and happy to coexist
  • package locks no longer exclude optionalDependencies that failed to build. This means package-lock.json and npm-shrinkwrap.json should now be cross-platform.
    • This will hopefully mitigate the optionalDependencies issue with our build server in #38657 / r39368, when the build server is bumped to use the upcoming Node.js v8.x LTS release this can be tested and confirmed.
  • Running npm while offline will no longer insist on retrying network requests. npm will now immediately fall back to cache if possible, or fail, npm's caching is vastly improved in npm 5
  • On performance, NodeJS 6.9.1 and NPM 3.10.8 running npm install in tests took ~67.39 seconds on average, with NodeJS v7.10.0 and npm v5.0.0 this is halved to ~28.938 seconds on average, once npm modules are cached reinstalling node_modules averages 23.091 seconds, just shy of a 3x speed boost
    • Detailed bbPress, BuddyPress, and WordPress performance tests can be seen in this spreedsheet
    • The performance boost is comparable to that of Yarn, initial install 21.40 seconds, and subsequent installs 18.82 seconds, see #38603

          Thread: Century: Spice Road:: General:: Looking for a database of the Trade Cards please   

by humithmu

Hi there,

I've played the game, but don't own a copy. I'm really interested in the math side of the game so I was wondering if someone could direct me to a database of all of the cards that shows what trades are available.

Or if someone was feeling super generous, a spreadsheet of the input/output trade values of each card would be much appreciated!

Thanks,
Michael
          Take action on health care over July 4th Recess!   

Your calls, letters, signatures, stories, visits and loud, outraged voices are helping to slow down (and hopefully stop!) the repeal of the Affordable Care Act and massive cuts to Medicaid! U.S. Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell was trying to rush his terrible, horrible, no good ‘health care’ (really, wealth care) bill, The Better Care Reconciliation Act/Trumpcare, through the U.S. Senate before the 4th of July recess, but on Tuesday he said he was delaying the vote because he doesn’t have support.

But to be very, very clear: we have won a very small battle—not the war. This is just a delay. They are going to rewrite some of the bill in an attempt to build support from key senators and schedule a vote in the coming weeks.

We can’t let up! We need to keep speaking out for our families’ health care!

While our Senators are home for July 4th Recess we want to make sure we are seen and heard. Here are a few ways you can make sure you stand up for health care over the next week:

1. Send a Letter to the Editor! Letters that are submitted this week to your local newspapers are likely to be published next week when Senators are back in their home states.  Perfect timing!  Senators and their staff pay close attention to letters to the editor in local newspapers as a way to gauge the opinions of constituents. Just click here and we’ll walk you through the whole process (including sample language and sending your letter directly to your local newspaper!).

2. Bring a MomsRising health care sign to your local 4th of July parade or make your own. These parades are often attended by local elected leaders and the press. Holding a sign to speak out for health care is a great way to show your support for you community and patriotism!

3. Tweet at your Senators about your health care story, local articles about how the Senate bill is damaging, or your disapproval of the Senate plan. You can find a full list of Senator’s twitter handles here.

4.  Attend a town hall meeting or a local event sponsored by one of our partner organizations. Countless local groups are mobilizing across the U.S. this July 4th recess to #RESIST the terrible, horrible, no good cuts and caps to our health care. There’s too many to list, so we encourage you to connect with other health care advocates in your community and speak out locally. You can find some of the hundreds of events here:

          Here's how much money you need to save to retire on a beach and play golf all day by age 40

Retiring early depends on one essential variable: your lifestyle. 

How much you spend today — and how much you expect to spend in retirement — dictates how much you need to save before you can live your best life on a beach or golf course somewhere far away from the office. 

Whether your dream is to retire in your 20s, 30s, 40s, or 50s, there are plenty of successful examples for you to follow. But anyone who has managed to retire early knows the magic formula means having enough saved up so that you can live off your investment returns each year, without actually touching your savings.

There's a simple way to calculate how much you'll need to have saved up before you can retire. Take your desired annual retirement income, and divide it by 4% (the maximum amount you will withdraw from your savings each year to pay for your living expenses in retirement).

For example: 

  • $50,000 ÷ 4% = $1,250,000 
  • $60,000 ÷ 4% = $1,500,000
  • $100,000 ÷ 4% = $2,500,000

Then, you have an idea of how much money you need to save to create enough returns to finance your retirement lifestyle. To live on $50,000 a year, you can see, you'd need savings of $1.25 million. Take a look at the chart below to see how much you need for retirement income ranging from $40,000 a year to $250,000 a year.

amount needed to save for retirement based on desired income

One caveat: The 4% withdrawal strategy only works if you are able to earn at least a 5% return (after taxes and inflation) on your retirement savings. Keeping all your savings in cash won't do the trick.

Once you know your magic number, you can leave work as soon as you reach it. If you know you'll need $80,000 a year in retirement, then you can call it quits the day your account balance hits $2 million. Even if you're only 28.

When determining your magic retirement number, be honest with yourself. If you make $100,000 today and spend all of your take-home pay, you aren't likely to be able to live happily on $50,000 a year in retirement.

To get to your goal, saving sporadically simply won't cut it. Even saving 10% per year consistently during your career means you'll have to work nearly 52 years before you can afford to maintain your lifestyle in retirement. If you're 22 today, that means getting a paycheck until you're in your 70s. If you only save 6% — the average savings rate in the US — you'll have to put in 62 years before you'll have enough saved to match your current income in retirement.

You probably already know that the earlier you start, the more you can take advantage of investment growth (and the less you will have to save out of pocket). But no matter how old you are today, you can always write — or rewrite — your own journey to early retirement story.

Achieve that goal, and then you can turn your attention to perfecting your tan and your golf swing.

8.Lotus
Lotus Software (disebut Lotus Development Corporation sebelum akuisisi oleh IBM ) adalah sebuah perangkat lunak perusahaan dengan kantor pusat di Westford , Massachusetts . Lotus paling umum dikenal untuk 1-2-3 Lotus spreadsheet aplikasi, fitur-berat pertama, user-friendly, dapat diandalkan dan WYSIWYG -enabled produk menjadi tersedia secara luas pada hari-hari awal PC IBM , ketika tidak ada grafis user interface . Seperti alat yang berguna pasti membantu untuk menyebarkan adopsi dari PC, baik untuk aplikasi administrasi dan ilmiah. Banyak kemudian, dalam hubungannya dengan Ray Ozzie 's Associates Iris , Lotus juga merilis sebuah groupware dan email sistem, Lotus Notes . IBM membeli perusahaan pada tahun 1995 sebesar $ 3,5 miliar, terutama untuk memperoleh Lotus Notes dan untuk membangun kehadiran dalam semakin penting client-server segmen komputasi, yang dengan cepat membuat berbasis host produk seperti IBM OfficeVision usang

Sejarah 

Lotus didirikan pada tahun 1982 oleh mitra Mitch Kapor dan Jonathan Sachs dengan dukungan dari Ben Rosen . Produk pertama Lotus 'adalah perangkat lunak presentasi untuk Apple II yang dikenal sebagai Sistem Briefing Eksekutif Lotus. Kapor mendirikan Lotus setelah meninggalkan jabatannya sebagai kepala pembangunan di VisiCorp (distributor dari VisiCalc spreadsheet ) dan menjual semua hak kepada produk VisiPlot dan VisiTrend ke VisiCorp.

Tak lama setelah meninggalkan VisiCorp Kapor, ia dan Sachs menghasilkan spreadsheet terintegrasi dan program grafis. Meskipun IBM dan VisiCorp memiliki perjanjian kerjasama dimana VisiCalc sedang dikirim bersamaan dengan PC, Lotus memiliki produk jelas lebih unggul. Lotus merilis Lotus 1-2-3 pada tanggal 26 Januari 1983. Nama itu merujuk pada tiga cara produk dapat digunakan, sebagai spreadsheet, paket grafis, dan manajer database . Bahkan, dua terakhir fungsi kurang sering digunakan, tetap 1-2-3 adalah program spreadsheet yang paling kuat yang tersedia. Penjualan yang besar, mengubah Lotus menjadi vendor software independen terbesar di dunia hampir semalam. Rencana bisnis telah menyerukan $ 1 juta dalam penjualan pada tahun pertama, namun hasil aktual adalah $ 54 juta.
Pada tahun 1982 Jim Manzi datang ke Lotus sebagai konsultan manajemen, dan menjadi seorang karyawan empat bulan kemudian. Pada bulan Oktober 1984 ia diangkat Presiden, dan pada April 1986 ia diangkat sebagai CEO , berhasil Kapor. Pada bulan Juli tahun yang sama ia juga menjadi Ketua Dewan. Manzi akan tetap di kepala Lotus hingga 1995.

 


          Materi Kelas 7 :Program Aplikasi (Kegunaan Program Aplikasi)    

2.Microsoft Excel
Microsoft Excel atau Microsoft Office Excel adalah sebuah program aplikasi lembar kerja spreadsheet yang dibuat dan didistribusikan oleh Microsoft Corporation untuk sistem operasi Microsoft Windows dan Mac OS. Aplikasi ini memiliki fitur kalkulasi dan pembuatan grafik yang, dengan menggunakan strategi marketing Microsoft yang agresif, menjadikan Microsoft Excel sebagai salah satu program komputer yang populer digunakan di dalam komputer mikro hingga saat ini. Bahkan, saat ini program ini merupakan program spreadsheet paling banyak digunakan oleh banyak pihak, baik di platform PC berbasis Windows maupun platform Macintosh berbasis Mac OS, semenjak versi 5.0 diterbitkan pada tahun 1993. Aplikasi ini merupakan bagian dari Microsoft Office System, dan versi terakhir adalah versi Microsoft Office Excel 2007 yang diintegrasikan di dalam paket Microsoft Office System 2007.
Pekerjaan yang sering ditangani Mcrosoft Excel antara lain :
1.Menentukan jumlah , rata-rata , nilai terendah , nilai tertinggi , dan cacah data
Pekerjaan-pekerjaan tersebut dapat diselesaikan dengan mengunakan fasilitas yang disebut “fungsi”.
Fungsi yang dimaksud adalah:
= Sum (range), untuk menentukan jumlah
= Average (range), untuk menentukan rata-rata
= Min (range), untuk menentukan nilai terkecil
= Max (range), untuk menentukan nilai terbesar
= Count (range), untuk mencari atau menentukan cacah data

Cara menggunakan fungsi AUTO SUM ini silahkan diikuti langkah-langkah berikut ini.
  1. Masukkan angka-angka atau data kedalam table atau sel-sel di lembar kerja ms excel. Seperti contoh gambar berikut ini.

    data
  2. Blok sel yang berisi angka-angka sampai pada sel dimana hasil penjumlahan akan ditampilkan, misalnya sampai pada baris JUMLAH.

    blok sel

  1. Setelah itu klik icon Auto Sum pada ribbon Home, group menu editing

    auto sum
 Maka hasil penjumlahan secara otomatis akan ditampilkan dengan akurat.

hasil
Cara menggunakan fungsi AVERAGE ini silahkan diikuti langkah-langkah berikut ini.
=AVERAGE(range data)
Penjelasan bahwa range data di atas adalah kita blok data yang ingin cari rata-ratanya
Perhatikan Data di bawah yang akan kita cari rata-ratanya
http://dc439.4shared.com/doc/NwSsss4x/preview_html_2b459684.png
Seperti yang diketahui bahwa Rata-rata terletak pada cell E19 (pertemuan antara kolom E dan baris 19) dan table data yang akan dicari rata-ratanya adalah cell E9 sampai dengan E17 (secara menurun)
Jadi dalam pembuatan rumus AVERAGE kita lakukan pada cell E19, sehingga menjadi
=AVERAGE(blok data yang akan kita cari rata-ratanya)
Sehingga rumus yang sebenarnya adalah
=AVERAGE(E9:E17)



Cara menggunakan fungsi COUNT ini silahkan diikuti langkah-langkah berikut ini.
=COUNT(range data)
Penjelasan bahwa range data di atas adalah kita blok data yang ingin cari Nilai Terendahnya
Seperti yang terlihat dari cell B6 sampai B24 tiap cell/kota berisi data yang berbeda-beda, ada yang 1 cell/kota tulisan saja dan ada yang angka saja. Dalam rumus ini kita akan mencari jumlah kotak/cell yang berisi angka saja
Sehingga pada cell B25 kita membuat rumus
=COUNT(blok data yang akan kita cari jlh angkanya)
Sehingga rumus pastinya adalah
=COUNT(B6:B24)
erhatikan Data di bawah yang akan kita cari jumlah angkanya
http://dc439.4shared.com/doc/NwSsss4x/preview_html_m7350fb9c.png




Cara menggunakan fungsi MIN ini silahkan diikuti langkah-langkah berikut ini.
Berikut tata cara Penulisan MIN
=MIN(range data)
Penjelasan bahwa range data di atas adalah kita blok data yang ingin cari Nilai Terendahnya
Perhatikan Data di bawah yang akan kita cari Nilai terendahnya
http://dc439.4shared.com/doc/NwSsss4x/preview_html_2b459684.png
Seperti yang diketahui bahwa Nilai Terendahnya terletak pada cell E21 (pertemuan antara kolom E dan baris 21) dan table data yang akan dicari Nilai Terendahnya adalah cell E9 sampai dengan E17 (secara menurun)
Jadi dalam pembuatan rumus MIN kita lakukan pada cell E21, sehingga menjadi
=MIN(blok data yang akan kita Nilai Terendahnya)
Sehingga rumus yang sebenarnya adalah
=MIN(E9:E17)
Cara menggunakan fungsi MAX ini silahkan diikuti langkah-langkah berikut ini.
Berikut tata cara Penulisan MAX
=MAX(range data)
Penjelasan bahwa range data di atas adalah kita blok data yang ingin cari Nilai Tertingginya
Perhatikan Data di bawah yang akan kita cari Nilai terendahnya
http://dc439.4shared.com/doc/NwSsss4x/preview_html_2b459684.png
Seperti yang diketahui bahwa Nilai Tertinggi terletak pada cell E20 (pertemuan antara kolom E dan baris 20) dan table data yang akan dicari Nilai Tertingginya adalah cell E9 sampai dengan E17 (secara menurun)
Jadi dalam pembuatan rumus MAX kita lakukan pada cell E20, sehingga menjadi
=MAX(blok data yang akan kita Nilai Tertingginya)
Sehingga rumus yang sebenarnya adalah
=MAX(E9:E17)

2. Menentukan jumlah kali, hasil pembagian , hasil penambahan , dan hasil pengurangan    
Hasil kali, hasil pembagian, hasil penambahan dan hasil pengurangan dapat ditentukan dengan mengunakan simbol operasi
·       *, untuk mengalikan
·       /, untuk membagi
·       +, untuk menambah
·       -, untuk mengurangan




3.Menentukan suatu alternative
Fungsi IF merupakan fungsi logika, yang artinya suatu nilai mempunyai syarat dan dapat bernilai benar jika syarat terpenuhi serta bernilai salah jika syarat tidak terpenuhi. Secara umum rumus fungsi IF dalam Microsoft Excel adalah sebagai berikut :
IF(Logical_Test;Value_if_True;Value_if_false) atau
IF(Syarat;Hasil_Jika_Syarat_Terpenuhi;Hasil_Jika_Syarat_Tidak_Terpenuhi)


Terdapat daftar nilai siswa-siswi yang mempunyai keterangan lulus dan tidak lulus, dengan syarat jika nilai lebih kecil atau sama dengan 50 maka siswa dinyatakan “Tidak Lulus”.
http://smppgri1bdl.files.wordpress.com/2009/03/excelif.jpg?w=510


Dari gambar diatas kita dapat menggunakan fungsi IF untuk memberikan hasil pada keterangan berdasarkan nilai yang didapat. Coba buat tabel seperti pada gambar diatas, dengan mengosongkan data keterangan karena akan diisi menggunakan rumus fungsi IF. Setelah selesai coba masukan rumus berikut ini pada sel D3.
=IF(C3<=50;”Tidak Lulus”;”Lulus”)


Kemudian tekan enter untuk melihat hasilnya, setelah terlihat hasilnya coba copy kan rumus tersebut untuk sel D4 sampai dengan D7.Fungsi IF diatas adalah fungsi IF sederhana,  kita bisa menggabungkan beberapa fungsi bersamaan dengan Fungsi IF.
4.Pembacaan Tabel
Pembacaan tabel banyak digunakan dalam suatu kantor yang mempunyai banyak karyawan dengan golongan yang berbeda-beda. Pembacaan tabel dalam Microsoft excel menggunakan fungsi :
= Vlookup (sel kunci, range yang dibaca, ofset kolom, false)
= Hlookup (sel kunci, range yang dibaca, ofset baris, false)
Vlookup
Langkah 1 : Mari kita buat satu sheet bernama Master Siswa, kemudian kita buat 4 kolom yaitu Kode Siswa, Nama Siswa, Tanggal Lahir, Jenis Kelamin.
http://ruangsoftware.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/vlookup1-300x108.png
Membuat Tabel Master
Langkah 2 : Biar lebih mudah diingat, kita namakan tabel di atas Master_Siswa, caranya masuk ke menu Insert ->Name -> Define, kemudian kita namakan Master_Siswa.
http://ruangsoftware.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/vlookup2-300x189.png
Memberi nama tabel master









Langkah 3 : Kita buat satu sheet bernama Ranking
http://ruangsoftware.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/vlookup3-300x160.png
Sheet untuk Ranking
Langkah 4 : Kita isikan formula di cell pada kolom nama siswa, misalnya D6. Untuk memilih formula masuk ke menu Insert -> Function, kemudian masukkan nama VLOOKUP.
http://ruangsoftware.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/vlookup4-214x300.png
Memasukkan Formula VLOOKUP
Rumusnya menjadi : =VLOOKUP(C6, Master_Siswa, 2, False)
Range_Lookup kita isikan false saja. Selanjutnya formula kita copy jangan lupa untuk menambahkan tanda dollar ($) di depan kolom, karena untuk mencegah kolom berubah apabila dicopy ke samping, sebagai berikut :
=VLOOKUP($C6, Master_Siswa, 2, False)



Hasil Akhir :
http://ruangsoftware.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/vlookup5-300x106.png

Hlookup
=HLookUp(lookup_value;table_array;row_index_num;[range_lookup])
atau diterjemahkan sebagai berikut:
=Hlookup(data yang dicari;tabel;baris_yang_diingikan;[range])
Dengan pengertian bahwa kita akan mencari / mengambil data dari sebuah tabel secara Horizontal, horizontal disini maksudnya adalah kita mengambil data berdasarkan nilai baris dalam Microsoft Excel. Untuk lebih jelasnya perhatikan contoh dibawah ini :
HlookUp
Buatlah tabel seperti contoh di atas dengan data entri 5 saja, kemudian buat percobaan pengambilan data dengan membuat bagian Baris pada F10 dan isi baris pada G10. Untuk melihat hasilnya kita buat “Hasil yang ditemukan” pada D12, dan hasilnya pada E12. E12
          Forum Post: RE: Fixed Assets module   
Hi, Determining asset classes, in my opinion, is the most important element in properly setting up the Fixed Assets module. To determine the classes, I use an Excel Spreadsheet and list the following elements in columns for each asset. Each GL Account, Life, Method and Insurance ID (if used). An asset class includes assets where EVERY column is the same. I usually name it Class 1, 2, etc. on the spreadsheet. If all of the assets that land in a certain class are the same, you can name it according to the type of asset. If the types are different, you'll want to split the group. The most important thing to me is knowing how many unique combinations exist. Kind regards, Leslie
          Workshop Progress #1: Workshop Progress   

I am excited to join the Lumberjocks community to share and learn from my fellow woodworkers. This week, I continue to make progress on the workshop transformation. The walls were insulated and sheathed last weekend. Recently I began construction on the castor work table; heavy and stable is the key. Next I will build a power tool cubby. To design, I listed all the power tools that I currently have, and the ones that I expect to have in the future. After creating a spreadsheet of their required cubby dimensions, I came up with a series of standard sizes and configured them into one cabinet. I will post photos as soon as I am done with this project. I took inspiration from my college woodshop. I recall how orderly and accessible the tools are when stored in these bins.

          Financial Review - June, 2017   
June was another good month for the portfolio with small gains across the board producing a 2.07 percent increase in net assets.

For the year, the portfolio is up 10.10%. The adjusted change from when I retired in September 2013 is a 17.12% increase. Hong Kong liquidity stands at 28.0 months of estimated outgoings, well down on January's 38.6 months due to new investments + a transfer to New Zealand but ahead of last month's after I sold some investments.

Here are the details:

1. my Hong Kong equities increased. I sold my shares in COSCO Ports (HK:1199) and a very small position in China New Economy Fund (HK:80). I reinvested some of the proceeds in Kowloon Development (HK:34) which offers a higher yield (around 7% on cost) and a significant discount to NAV which may or may not improve once legal uncertainty over a property development project in Macau is resolved. While I booked a profit on COSCO Ports, the company has been a serial underperformer which has failed to meet expectations either in terms of growth or dividend levels. The Fund was ditched at a small loss after it appeared in David Webb's list of "50 stocks not to own". This is a lesson in not doing sufficient due diligence - at the time I invested, NAV was above HK$0.80 and the shares were trading ago around HK$0.24. I did check the values of the listed shares in the fund's portfolio to ensure that their values had not fallen significantly but I did not look into the merits of those shares individually. As it turns out a significant number of the Fund's investments were also on the list and plunged spectacularly wiping out a significant amount of investor value;

2. my AU/NZ equities rose slightly. I purchased additional shares in Automative Holdings (ASX: AHG), believing the market had over-reacted to a slowdown in Australian car sales + potential changes to the way car's are finance in Australia. My expected yield on purchase price is above 6%;

3.my equity ETFs were up slightly (India, Hong Kong and China) in line with the local markets;

4. my position in silver fell;

5. all tenants are paying on time and all properties are let;

6. the AUD and NZD were up against the HKD/USD;

7. my position in bonds remains small but improved this month when I purchased some 1 year notes issued by part of the Hainan Airlines group using a margin facility - this is a carry trade.

8. expenses were low with no travelling and no other non-regular domestic bills incurred;

My HK cash position rose during the month due to sales of HK equities mentioned above. I currently hold 28.0 months of expenses in HKD cash or equivalents (down from 38.6 months on 1 January).

I have revamped my spreadsheets to capture all debt (previously some accounts were entered on a net basis). Total household gearing ((debt+accruals)/assets) is 9.28% of total assets. Property prices are as at 1 January, 2017, so this overstates the gearing ratio.

I would like to make some additional investments but am struggling to find good value in the markets I follow. With expectations of further rises in interest rates muted, I was tempted by the carry trade, and purchased the Hainan Airlines notes using a margin facility.

          Vote Picks for 2016 for Santa Clara County, Assembly District 28, Willow Glen (ish)   
As many of you know, I obsess about politics the way other people do about sports. This has been the most interesting election cycle of my lifetime, both good and bad. I've been pouring over the my ballot, and I get excited when I get my State Voter Guide, which is online. and below are my picks for 2016 all the way down. Feel free to start a conversation on this.

My Picks:

  • President/VP: Clinton/Kaine
  • Senator: Kamala Harris. Look, I love Loretta Sanchez as a person, and I recognize and appreciate what she's done in Garden Grove. But Harris is a serious candidate, and a historic candidate
  • Congress: Zoe Lofgren, now and forever. Proud to have her as my representative in Congress.
  • State Senator: Jim Beall.
  • Assembly: Evan Low
  • San Jose Unified School District: Pam Foley.
  • East Side Union School District. Pattie Cortese
  • City Council: Helen Chapman. Dev Davis is a Republican.
  • Open Space District: Dorsey Moore. PLO is just ballot riding.
  • Prop 51: Yes. Its the only way we can legitimately fund schools in California
  • Prop 52: Yes. Why is this not in the legislature?
  • Prop 53: No. Would make raising revenue for worthy projects harder
  • Prop 54: Yes. Seems reasonable that legislation should be public 72 hours ahead of time.
  • Prop 55: Yes. Proud to extend this, and to pay it. We have to find education somehow.
  • Prop 56: Yes. Leads to a healthier population
  • Prop 57: Yes. Part of the on-going criminal justice reform
  • Prop 58: Yes. Preserves the status quo. Common language is a unifier. I'd also like to see mandatory Spanish as well. Maybe in the future.
  • Prop 59: Yes. Allowing for proposal and ratification of an amendment to overturn Citizens United
  • Prop 60: Blank. Ummm, really? I have to vote on this?
  • Prop 61: Yes. Lowers drug prices. 
  • Prop 62: Yes. End the Death Penalty. Seamless Garment.
  • Prop 63: Yes. Background check for ammo. Guns don't kill people, bullets do.
  • Prop 64: Yes. 420 dood. Then tax it. See Aquinas: "lex humana dicitur aliqua permittere, non quasi ea approbans, sed quasi ea dirigere non potens." (ST 1-2.93.3.3)
  • Prop 65: Yes. Grudgingly. The bag ban is an example of the nanny state. Do you know how many groceries I have left in the parking lot because of this ban? But this redirects money to environmental causes.
  • Prop 66: No. Seems to me like taking away due process rights
  • Prop 67: No. See Prop 65. How much pasta sauce do I need to leave in the Safeway parking lot?
  • Measure A: Yes. We have the largest per-capita homeless population. We need to fix it.
  • Measure B: Yes. Traffic is a mess, future generations need BART. Yes to the sales tax.

          HUU Elections 2009 - The delayed President   
One of the more controversial aspects of the elections that recently took place at Hull University Union was the disqualification of one of the Presidential candidates - Jamie Scudamore. Due to that decision, made by Returning Officer Kat Docherty, Jamie appealed and that meant an Election Appeals Committee had to be arranged. This delayed the result by a week.

Final round results
As the decision to disqualify Jamie Scudamore was reversed by the Election Appeals Committee, he has been elected President and all of the results from the polling period stand. R.O.N was out of the running first. In the next round Ben Hall and Rory Stobo were out of the running, which meant there was three candidates in the final round:

CandidateVotes
Jamie Scudamore1152
Amy Hopkinson655
Andrew Barrett471
Q&A with Alex Hamilton
Alex Hamilton
After the result of this particular election was announced, I had several questions. A number of rumours were being circulated and I wanted to make sure I had the truth before blogging anything. Yesterday I sent an email to Alex Hamilton (the UST and Deputy Returning Officer), containing the questions that I had and I got the following responses this morning:

Are the minutes of the EAC going to be published on hullstudent?
I'll have to check with Paul what the availability of closed committee minutes is. The reasons to go into closed session were the reports of what has happened previously in EACs, regarding intimidation of the EAC by the behaviour and amount of people present (Amy had arrived with about 15 very vocal supporters); also some of the evidence given would be prejudicial against one of the complainants if the EAC decided to re-run the election so it was deemed unsuitable to be heard publically.

Is it true that there was a 12-0 vote in favour of Jamie Scudamore winning, despite him breaking rules?
The vote was 10-0 as only ten could make the meeting (quoracy is seven). They decided that the infringements during the election that were dealt with to the RO’s satisfaction were not grounds to exclude him and that the only unresolved issue, the one for which the RO excluded the candidate was insubstantial, especially given the circumstances in which it was initiated.

Was the EAC called because he was canvassing (e.g. knocking on doors) in areas where he wasn't supposed to?
It was not. There has been a rumour of a local council byelaw prohibiting this, but no proof has been offered. I have myself researched this and the only thing I could find was a byelaw preventing the employment of children for door knocking/ canvassing without an adult present; which would of course imply that adults can do so.

There have been accusations of rigging (I'm not going to name anyone). Can I get your confirmation that it was completely random selection that decided who was part of the EAC?
I can confirm the students were entirely random, as the Chair of Council (Paddy) and James Brooks can attest to.

The process I used to select the students was http://random.org/integers/ to generate 200 random positive integers, these numbers then corresponded to a cell on an excel spreadsheet of all students, which has them listed 1-17000ish. These names were then checked against the list of candidates, proposers and seconders. I then sent an email to these students explaining the situation (an appeal had been made which required adjudication). I also checked the respondents’ facebooks for any campaign ties, and then found a time that at least 7 could make to hold the meeting. I also did not know any of the EAC.

I must also point out that I refused to release the names of the EAC prior to the meeting, despite threats of a motion of no-confidence against myself (which was subsequently made) from Amy’s campaign team, notably Sam Greenwood.


What are your thoughts on the decision of the EAC to elect Jamie?
I am of course impartial to any proceedings during the election period. I am satisfied though that the EAC carried out their duty satisfactorily and professionally.

Alex finished off the email by stating:
"There have been a great deal of rumours surrounding the President election (as there are almost every year), this year I feel the difference is that two actively political campaigns have not succeeded against what is seen as an outsider to HUU politics, and due to the last minute resignation of the previous RO, a Sabbatical needing to take on the deputy duties, as I am available on campus during the period – as a result the parties involved moved their attentions from campaigning for a victory to undermining the processes involved.

The recently elected Officers have a massive democratic mandate as a result of our highest ever turnout, and as such it is a shame that some groups within our democratic structures are intent on ignoring and undermining this."
First of all I have to thank Alex for taking the time to answer the questions. It would have been easy to ignore them and keep speculation circulating around the union.

Despite the detail of these responses, I still have some concerns. Kat Docherty was only present on the results night and there is no evidence to suggest she was present at the EAC to justify her decision. His refusal to release the names of the EAC is also worrying.

There is only his word which states the membership wasn't rigged in any way. This doesn't help to make the union transparent and also means there is nothing to prove that what he says about committee selection is correct. In the past, I have seen EAC membership announced and it's even more important given that there's a no-confidence motion against him.

In point 3, he stated that he could not find evidence to prove that the accusation about canvassing was against the rules. After searching election laws, Standing Order 2003 (governing elections) and the HUU Bye-laws I could not find anything either. If there is proof - then please leave a comment on this blog post.

If there's no proof of that though, what was the reason for the initial disqualification? This needs to be stated to make sure the union remains transparent.

Alex also mentioned the subject of the previous RO (Paul Tatton), resigning from that position. Even though Alex felt an impartial replacement needed to be found, this does not mean that he should necessarily be the automatic choice as a deputy. As I have stated in a previous blog post, theoretically he could influence the result and (as he rightly states), executive officers are meant to be impartial.

Public opinion
I have asked other people what they feel about the decision to elect a candidate who was initially disqualified. One person said:
"I think its right
There is no way you can say that the number of votes cast has been dramatically affected by what happened.
His vote count was far too high for that."
I replied by stating that "while it's true that there is no proof that the two things are linked, is it right that a person who was initially disqualified should be elected?". The person said:
"i still feel it was in the best interests of the students and the union itself"
It is an interesting point. Not being able to found out who can rightly call themselves President as soon as possible can have a huge impact. It affects training schedules, teamwork and could potentially mean voters lose faith in the union's ability to manage itself properly.

However, it is important that those who are elected have the right to hold that position and all necessary steps need to be taken to ensure that.

Summary and Conclusion
I would say that the biggest problem is communication. As I have mentioned, there is evidence of a lack of transparency and people need this to know that their votes have meaning. There needs to be appropriate publicity for all elections and all info that is published needs to be 100% accurate.

The presidential election could have been handled better, but I applaud Alex for giving answers to important questions in an effort to reduce the number of concerns people have. If you have any issues with the election, it is always important to contact the RO or the deputy.

It will be interesting to hear what happens with the no-confidence motion. There seems to be a large amount of support for it, but will people give up as the election process is now completed?

So, what do you think?

          LVO Results - A chance to look at the 40k meta (Beware: Mild Number Crunching)   

The LVO (Las Vegas Open) Results are out, and as it's one of (if not the) largest tournaments in the world it's always nice to crunch the numbers and see does the meta of that tournament follow our thinking of which armies are the top dog.

First some pretty huge caveats:

  • This is one tournament, and even if it is large it is still a small sample size as any statistician would tell you.
  • With most tournaments having comp that will always change slightly which armies are good, with some armies being able to adjust to the comp better than others.  For the comp in this tournament, please look up the ITC (Independent Tournament Circuit) Rules
  • Results can be skewed by several factors, eg. some people do not complete all their games leading to them having a lower placing than someone who does complete all their games, an army's primary detachment may be a very small portion of the overall army.
So while we should treat all such analysis with a pinch of salt, hopefully the above factors in some cases even themselves out with a large number of competitors.

The full results of the tournament can be found here.

So lets start off my with my predictions (honest I did these before the analysis):

  • All the analysis tables will be dominated by the top 4 Codexs (Eldar, Necrons, Marines for which I include Dark Angels & and finally Tau), ie. the recent codexs with Decurian type detachments (although in the case of Eldar I think their detachment is not their strength, which I think is the base unit cost of their units meaning a CAD with an allied Aspect Host(s) being very powerful for them.  Mainly the top 4 are the most recent codexs
  • They will be some placings for some armies, such as Daemons & Khorne Daemonkin, but the results will show the rest of the codexs are definitely chasing the top 4 in terms of performance, however good generals can get good results.
  • The last stat I like to do, which shows how widespread an armies results are, which to me shows how much a good or bad general can influence the army, I'm not to sure on what this will show.  People like to say that anyone can win with Eldar, but to me they are becoming (like Marines) an army that everyone knows because they are so powerful and becoming so popular.  When I'm playing my Necrons or Tau I feel I know the Eldar better than my opponents know Tau or Necrons and that I have less to fear if I'm playing a worse player.  However in general I still see Eldar smash average generals with average armies whoever they are piloted by.  I think Marines will still have a wide spread of results as they are a popular army and many beginners start with them.
Well onto the stats, and lets take a look at army popularity:
Well no surprises here with my view of the top armies dominated both the field and also the top 50 placings.  A shout out to Dark Angels which got 10% of the top 50 placings while being only 4% of the field.

A stat that starts to shows the power of a codex is to look at how much more they factor in the Top 50 compared to the overall field.  If we ignore the armies with less than 10 armies, we get the following table:
A bit of a surprise (for me anyway) with Dark Angels topping the list, I suppose I need to pay more attention to them.  Apart from that things were as expected apart from Marines, which had nearly the same percentage in the top 50 as they had in the entire field.  Cult Mech and Nids also did well (however the Nids sample is very small, eg. it could have been just 2 armies with loads of Flying Hive Tyrants making the top 50, which would say much for the rest of the codex).

Now lets look at the average placing:
Eldar still dominate along with Marines, Tau & Necrons, but Cult Mech gets a good showing.  I particularly like to look at the stats for the top 50, as this shows what a good general can get out of the army, and also gets rid of the newer players bringing marines.  This brings up a few things, first being the Necrons did very well in the top 50 along with Daemons (although a very small number, 3, made the top 50).  The Chaos Marines, Nids and Daemons armies indicate that is may have been a very specific build that made the top 50 as the overall performance of the three armies was very low.

And now we come to the last stat, which tries to represent the spread of the armies.  To calculate this I looked at each player and how far their position is away from the average for their army, and then divide this by the number of players.  Again just looking at the armies which had 10 or more entrants we get the following table:

At the top of the list we have the armies which had the narrowest spread in the army placings.  In the case of the top three I think it's because it's hard (not impossible) to place in such a competitive field regardless of how good a general you are.  Another view could be that people who take the weaker armies are there more to have fun and socialise, my counter is that even if you are there to have fun and socialise a good general should do better than a worse, and although this is true with these weaker armies it isn't as much as other armies.

Next we have Cult Mech and Eldar.  It may be controversial to some, but it can be hard to pick a weak list for Eldar once you don't pick silly choices, a complaint I've even heard from Eldar players trying to tone down their list when playing against some of the lower tier armies.

Next we have the middle of the road (in terms of spread), here we have Space Marines (being a very popular first army, so can have lots of newer players as well as experienced players), Daemons & Dark Angels.

Lastly we have a big surprise, in the bottom three we have both Tau and Necrons, which had bigger spread of performance than the average, only beaten by Nids.  The new Tau codex might have had an impact with people trying out the new toys and formations, and not having enough practice time with them, but the Necrons is definitely a surprise.  My only idea is that Necrons can be a win big or lose big army, in that they are very resistant to most shooting, but can be susceptible to some types of firepower and can get sweep easily in close combat.  Examples include a Cavalry and Beasts Space Wolf army could go throw a Necron force like a knife through butter, sprinkle in some allied firepower or a Knight and it could be very tough prospect for a Necron force.  Even though these two armies being low on the spread chart is surprising, and I'm sure the Tau will improve as people get used to the new options in the new codex, or maybe even realise that some of the old ones are still good (I'm doing well and i haven't built my Ghstkeel yet or even purchased a Stormsurge)..


So did anything surprise you ?  Why do you think Tau & Necrons had such a huge spread (I may expand on my thoughts in a future post) ?  Personally I'm going to have another look at the Cult Mech codex and the nasty formation that combined Cult Mech with Skitarii and Imperial Knights.

Lastly this was the meta at this one tournament, and is irrelevant for your local meta, and more importantly the group of mates you play with.  The meta in the UK will be different, the meta in the north US, the meta in the next tournament will be different, however I think it does give an indicator of what codexs are the most powerful, and wasn't toooo far out on my initial predictions, but even I will be doing a bit more research to be more familiar with Dark Angels and Cult Mech.

          Comment on Recognising a Bad User Interface at First Glance by Mike Benstead   
I'm in Australia. We get input from the UK, Canada, USA, etc. so we have to try and work out what the hell you meant some of the time. In a database or Spreadsheet opt's ok. We can look at the raw data (5 digit number for the date). In a document it;s a little more tricky when you get 02-01-2016. Seeing where the document came from gives a clue. I always use the format 01-Jan-16 01:30 PM. ANyone can understand that. I would imagine that the more important issue is not the output but the input. If someone in the U.S. enters a date in an Australian or Canadian website for example. btw When are they going to start driving in the right side of the road (i.e. the left).

          The Best Productivity Tools: Time-Saving Methods to Find Digital Tools   

people analyzing productivity tools for nonprofitsA recent NetSquared London Meetup investigated the IT tools that can be used to get nonprofit operations done cheaply and effectively.

It also delved into how nonprofits can tackle the process of finding the tech that helps the most when you don't necessarily have the time to research. Charity Digital News shares some of the key points from the event.

Matt Moorut from Technology Trust kicked things off by noting, from his own experience and from working with others, that it's often difficult for nonprofits to get organizational support for new tools.

It's especially difficult if the tools aren't 100 percent free or if they require people in the team to learn new ways of working.

In order to get the ball rolling, nonprofits need to find the right tools for their cause (watch for suggestions in part 2 of this series next week). And not only that — they also need to get buy-in from the very top of their organization.

Digital Champions

If charities haven't got a trustee or senior managers who are championing digital, the best tools in the world won't make their way into the organization, which is a missed opportunity.

Matt suggested that if you haven't got a digital champion on your board of trustees, then you need to get one, because that champion's absence can be a serious blocker to your digital progress.

The Charity Digital Toolkit is a great set of resources to help get you started on your digital journey and can help support existing digital advocates within a nonprofit to persuade others. If you need to convince senior managers of the value of digital, take a look at the section on digital leadership. You can also enroll those managers in CAST's Digital Fellowship program for nonprofit leaders, which is recruiting now!

Choosing the Right Tools

Assuming organizational barriers have been overcome, then how do you choose the right tools?

Before you start, you need to establish exactly what you're trying to achieve. This is a constant evaluation that all nonprofits should be doing anyway whenever they want to try something new and unproven. Even if you hear about a great tool that's worked for another organization, that tool might not be great for you!

So start by thinking about

  1. What's your mission?
  2. What's your strategy?
  3. What is essential?
  4. What are your main pain points?
  5. What solutions exist?

If you feel like you need more support with this process, take a look at Alidade, a super interactive guide created by The Engine Room to help nonprofits choose the right tool for the job.

Finding the Solution

So you think you know what kind of solution you need. Now how do you find and evaluate the different offers available?

Dama Sathianathan and Laurie Ainley are the driving forces behind Charity Catalogue, a curated hub of tools that either have a charity discount or are available for free for nonprofits. At the meetup, Dama revealed how several years ago she'd started working at a tiny charity. This nonprofit had no budget for communications, at a time when there were few tools available to help, especially free ones.

But now there are so many, the challenge has become how to compare all the options. And although there are some great startup-focused resources for this, there wasn't anything specifically geared towards the social sector.

On all charity forums that Dama and Laurie were members of, such as Charity Comms, Digital Charities, and ECF, one of the most common questions was, "Which tool do you use for X?" And that's how Charity Catalogue was born. What started with a spreadsheet has grown into a collection of 27 categories, of which 7 are live right now.

Aside from sector-specific tool banks like Charity Catalogue, you can also take a look at platforms for small businesses like G2 Crowd, Community How To, and Capterra (which has nonprofit-specific verticals).

Technology Trust's blog also has recommendations for tools in specific categories. The Trust uses nine criteria against which to measure new digital tools. These categories might be a handy guide for your own organization:

  1. Great user experience
  2. Short learning curve
  3. Cloud-based
  4. Companion mobile app
  5. Short contract
  6. Open API linking to other platforms
  7. Nonprofit discounts
  8. Regular updates
  9. Zero setup or minimal configuration

          Web-Scale Discovery Services Retrieve Relevant Results in Health Sciences Topics Including MEDLINE Content   
A Review of: Hanneke, R., & O’Brien, K. K. (2016). Comparison of three web-scale discovery services for health sciences research. Journal of the Medical Library Association, 104(2), 109-117. http://dx.doi.org/10.3163/1536-5050.104.2.004 Abstract Objective – To compare the results of health sciences search queries in three web-scale discovery (WSD) services for relevance, duplicate detection, and retrieval of MEDLINE content. Design – Comparative evaluation and bibliometric study. Setting – Six university libraries in the United States of America. Subjects – Three commercial WSD services: Primo, Summon, and EBSCO Discovery Service (EDS). Methods – The authors collected data at six universities, including their own. They tested each of the three WSDs at two data collection sites. However, since one of the sites was using a legacy version of Summon that was due to be upgraded, data collected for Summon at this site were considered obsolete and excluded from the analysis. The authors generated three questions for each of six major health disciplines, then designed simple keyword searches to mimic typical student search behaviours. They captured the first 20 results from each query run at each test site, to represent the first “page” of results, giving a total of 2,086 total search results. These were independently assessed for relevance to the topic. Authors resolved disagreements by discussion, and calculated a kappa inter-observer score. They retained duplicate records within the results so that the duplicate detection by the WSDs could be compared. They assessed MEDLINE coverage by the WSDs in several ways. Using precise strategies to generate a relevant set of articles, they conducted one search from each of the six disciplines in PubMed so that they could compare retrieval of MEDLINE content. These results were cross-checked against the first 20 results from the corresponding query in the WSDs. To aid investigation of overall coverage of MEDLINE, they recorded the first 50 results from each of the 6 PubMed searches in a spreadsheet. During data collection at the WSD sites, they searched for these references to discover if the WSD tool at each site indexed these known items. Authors adopted measures to control for any customisation of the product setup at each data collection site. In particular, they excluded local holdings from the results by limiting the searches to scholarly, peer-reviewed articles. Main results – Authors reported results for 5 of the 6 sites. All of the WSD tools retrieved between 50-60% relevant results. EDS retrieved the highest number of relevant records (195/360 and 216/360), while Primo retrieved the lowest (167/328 and 169/325). There was good observer agreement (k=0.725) for the relevance assessment. The duplicate detection rate was similar in EDS and Summon (between 96-97% unique articles), while the Primo searches returned 82.9-84.9% unique articles. All three tools retrieved relevant results that were not indexed in MEDLINE, and retrieved relevant material indexed in MEDLINE that was not retrieved in the PubMed searches. EDS and Summon retrieved more non-MEDLINE material than Primo. EDS performed best in the known-item searches, with 300/300 and 299/300 items retrieved, while Primo performed worst with 230/300 and 267/300 items retrieved. The Summon platform features an “automated query expansion” search function, where user-entered keywords are matched to related search terms and these are automatically searched along with the original keyword. The authors observed that this function resulted in a wholly relevant first page of results for one of the search questions tested in Summon. Conclusion – While EDS performed slightly better overall, the difference was not great enough in this small sample of test sites to recommend EDS over the other tools being tested. The automated query expansion found in Summon is a useful function that is worthy of further investigation by the WSD vendors. The ability of the WSDs to retrieve MEDLINE content through simple keyword searches demonstrates the potential value of using a WSD tool in health sciences research, particularly for inexpert searchers.

          Comment on The MAJOR Way a Shrinking, Aging Skilled Labor Force Will Impact U.S. Real Estate by Robert Soto   
Jered, thank you posting this. This article articulates the ideas I have felt for quite a while however were never able to express as eloquently as you have. Allow me to add a small piece onto this. The choices our nation's young professional people make, Are not only based income and potential future income. They are based on a perception of respect and image of success that don't exactly exist in the construction field. All too often, myself, my co-workers in other trades, our bosses tell stories about how in social situations once the conversation shifts towards professions, we are often snubbed at and looked down upon. This effect creates a perception that construction workers are bad, even the ones who are successful enough to move into the property investing field. When something is perceived as bad, it cheapens its value, therefore the young people will be more likely to not participate in it as a profession. I would also like to thank you for bringing attention the wages paid to construction workers, especially those tied to residential construction. Twice the minimum wage is nothing short of a joke for qualified construction expertise and work ethics. However, people in my area will pay a lawyer $400/hour. So I doubt a labor shortage will allow us to charge more than that. I love working for investors, and actually prefer it over homeowners. The investors I work with receive quality attention and service. They do not run around getting twenty quotes to get a $15k job down to $14,500, because their spreadsheet/budget says so. They've been burned, and realize quality costs money, this article only enhances that belief. So I thank you again, and wish you continued success in all of your future endeavors.

          D8 Module Sprint   

D8 is stable and developed enough to start working on module development. Needless to say that it is the modules that make Drupal so powerfull. Thus it is logic that we need to start thinking about the many modules that make a Drupal site great.
Therefore, we like to organize a sprint to get a large group of developers, testers, documenters etc... together, working on porting - as many as possible - popular modules to D8 such that these are available from the earliest moments on.

We will do this on Friday 9. August 2013

Drupal Users, this is your call to arms. Please sign up, Please let us know what module you would like to work on. Please provide some reasoning for your module selection so there is no second guessing.

If you join, please also add yourself to the Google doc spreadsheet at https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/ccc?key=0AjbTWnTTF3ildDE3MHh2WVdQelR....

In addition to the Badcamp (2012-11-01 .. 04) gabor organized a sprint (2012-11-05 .. 06). Find more about D8MI and all other Drupal 8 Core initiatives.

Thus we decided to announce

Badcamp Switzerland

Date: 2012-11-04 .. 06 (SUN - MON - TUE)
Location: MD Systems, Hermetschloostrasse 77, Zürich

Click here to signup for this event

The community will meet and focus on D8 core topics. We will participate Badcamp remotely and join sprinting for the goals.

Don't miss this opportunity to contribute to Drupal. Feature freeze is coming soon (dec 1)!

We are also looking forward to new contributors and will help you to start.

          Why it’s a good thing to do the coffee run at your internship   


So you landed the internship, congratulations!  You are super excited to arrive on your first day, and do all the cool things you’ve dreamed of and learn the tools of the trade so you can hopefully be hired upon graduation. You assume you will be trained in various systems and be able to make a creative contribution and impact from day one. Sure, you may have to shadow or learn for a week or two - but then you’ll be assigned the big account, the major project, invited to have a seat at the executive table, right? Well, you may want to manage your expectations.

And while each company is different, and internship programs have really evolved in recent years to include things like pay, travel stipends, set hours and more formal learning outcomes, some of the basics still remain true. An intern will need to start at the bottom and prove their value, by completing such tasks as making copies, answering phones, doing data entry, and, doing coffee runs from time to time.

It’s all about perspective: when you are the coffee person, you get to leave the office for a few minutes, get a change of scenery, check your phone and grab some fresh air, if the coffee place is outside of the building. And guess who you are: the intern that members of the team look forward to seeing every day, the intern who gets to actually speak with those staffers who they have retrieved coffee for, and, the person who got recognized by senior staff in the kitchen or elevator. They may just ask you one day what it is that YOU want to do - and offer their advice and assistance - since they know you are a nice, enthusiastic, team player who has earned a place at their (or a different) organization.

A student I know who interns at a well known media company on a TV show has had the opportunity to hang out with the writers when delivering their coffee, thus gaining valuable insights and face time with those sitting at the table where she wants to sit, one day.

A coffee run is an opportunity to demonstrate that you’re not above any task, to build relationships, and earn trust. Often what’s been stereotyped as a demeaning intern task is an exercise in patience, flexibility, and, depending on the complexity of the coffee order, attention to detail. Be the person who gets coffee AND thrives in their role, with a great attitude to boot.

All that said, employers should recognize that interns don’t have to just be coffee runners, copy makers and spreadsheet fillers. If employers give interns an opportunity to take on more substantial projects, they will be able to get a better sense of the type of full-time employee they’ll actually be. Hiring and onboarding an intern who has a deep knowledge of the company, its employees and a proven willingness to learn and be a “go to” person saves both time and money. And that’s always a good thing.

Go get ‘em. Some coffee.
And good luck on your finals!

Michele Roberts, Assistant Director

          Catch Up, 2016    
2016 was a busy year for interactive projects at The Seattle Times. According to our (very informal) spreadsheet, we did about 72 projects this year, about half of which were standalone. That number surprised me: at the start of the year, it felt like we were off to a slow start, but the final total isn't markedly lower than 2015, and some of those pieces were ambitious.

The big surprise of the year was Under Our Skin, a video project started by four young women in the newsroom and done almost completely under the radar. The videos themselves examine a dozen charged terms, particularly in a Seattle context, and there's a lot of smart little choices that the team made in this, such as the clever commenting prompts and the decision not to identify the respondents inline (so as not to invite pre-judgement). The editing is also fantastic. I pitched in a little on the video code and page development, and I've been working on the standalone versions for classroom use.

Perhaps the most fun projects to work on this year were with reporter Lynda Mapes, who covers environmental issues and tribal affairs for the Times. The Elwha: Roaring back to life report was a follow-up on an earlier, prize-winning look at one of the world's biggest dam removal projects, and I wrote up a brief how-to on its distinctive watercolor effects and animations. Lynda and I also teamed up to do a story on controversial emergency construction for the Wolverine fire, which involved digging through 60GB of governmental geospatial data and then figuring out how to present it to the reader in a clear, accessible fashion. I ended up re-using that approach, pairing it with SVG illustrations, for our ST3 guide.

SVG was a big emphasis for this year, actually. We re-used print assets to create a fleet of Boeing planes for our 100-year retrospective, output a network graph from Gephi to create a map of women in Seattle's art scene, and built a little hex map for a story on DEA funding for marijuana eradication. I also ended up using it to create year-end page banners that "drew" themselves, using Jake Archibald's animation technique. We also released three minimalist libraries for working with SVG: Savage Camera, Savage Image, and Savage Query. They're probably not anything special, but they work around the sharp edges of the elements with a minimal code footprint.

Finally, like much of the rest of the newsroom, our team got smaller this year. My colleague Audrey is headed to the New York Times to be a graphics editor. It's a tremendous next step, and we're very proud of her. But it will leave us trying to figure out how to do the same quality of digital work when we're down one newsroom developer. The first person to say that we just need to "do more with less" gets shipped to a non-existent foreign bureau.

Hey, I have a question for you. While we were chatting here, I was fiddling with the numbers and had a number, 671, blow up my spreadsheet. I can't believe it. Holy Cow! No way. I'm going to go play it before they shut the green bandits down for the night, but I'd be very curious to know if that number or any of its permutations; 671, 617, 167, 176, 716, or 761 show up in those numbers you follow.

          ExxonMobil Talks a Good Game, but It’s Still Funding Climate Science Deniers   
Execs claim support for a federal carbon tax and the Paris agreement, but the checkbook ledger tells a different story.

ExxonMobil executives repeatedly claim their company supports a federal carbon tax and the Paris climate agreement. The company’s checkbook ledger, however, tells a far different story.

Yesterday, the company released its annual list of its “public information and policy research” grantees, which shows that it spent $1.65 million in 2016 on a dozen think tanks, advocacy groups and associations that contest climate science and oppose both the Paris accord and a carbon tax—the very policies the company professes to endorse. Last year’s outlay boosted the total of the company’s expenditures on climate disinformation over the last two decades to $34.6 million.

Chamber of horrors

Most of ExxonMobil’s spending on denier groups last year—87 percent—went to four organizations: the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, American Enterprise Institute, Manhattan Institute and American Legislative Exchange Council.

ExxonMobil gave more than half of last year’s kitty, a cool $1 million, to the Chamber, which provided President Trump with a key, but fraudulent, rationale for pulling out of the Paris agreement. Parroting a recent report funded by the Chamber and the American Council for Capital Formation (ACCF)―which received $1.78 million from ExxonMobil between 2000 and 2015―Trump claimed that over the next several decades the accord would cost the U.S. economy nearly $3 trillion and, by 2040, eliminate 6.5 million industrial sector jobs.

The Associated Press, Politifact and the Washington Post fact-checked the speech and arrived at similar conclusions: The Chamber and ACCF cooked the books.

“The study makes worst-case assumptions that may inflate the cost of meeting U.S. targets under the Paris accord while largely ignoring the economic benefits to U.S. businesses from building and operating renewable energy projects,” AP reporters Michael Biescker and Paul Wiseman pointed out. “Academic studies have found that increased environmental regulation doesn’t actually have much impact on employment. Jobs lost at polluting companies tend to be offset by new jobs in green technology.”

The Chamber, which has a long history of denying climate science, made similar dire warnings about job losses in a 2014 report analyzing the Obama administration’s Clean Power Plan. That report used flawed assumptions to magnify the carbon rule’s cost and exaggerate job losses and, like its recent report on the Paris agreement, didn’t factor in the carbon rule’s considerable benefits.

The market will take care of it

The next biggest ExxonMobil grant last year, $235,000, went to the American Enterprise Institute, which had already received $4.1 million from the company between 1998 and 2015. AEI economist Benjamin Zycher addresses climate issues more than anyone else these days at the free-market think tank, and his views are diametrically opposed to ExxonMobil’s professed positions. He disputes the conclusions of mainstream climate science, insists a carbon tax would be “ineffective,” and calls the Paris agreement an “absurdity.”

Zycher’s colleague Mark Thiessen, a former speechwriter for President George W. Bush, is also no fan of the international accord. In a June 2 essay, he cited numbers from the Chamber’s discredited report and maintained that “our emissions will arguably decline faster because of Trump’s withdrawal—because our free market economy will be stronger and more innovative without it.”

Wind energy blows

The Manhattan Institute, which received $705,000 from ExxonMobil between 2006 and 2015, pulled in another $135,000 from the company last year. Staffers there aren’t too keen on the carbon tax or the Paris agreement, either. Senior Fellow Oren Cass, who previously worked at Mitt Romney’s old firm Bain & Company, calls the accord a “fraud” and argues that a carbon tax would be “bad for the country” and “bad for the economy.”

Another senior fellow at the libertarian think tank, Robert Bryce, previously worked as a newspaper reporter and for the Institute for Energy Research, a former ExxonMobil grantee that is largely underwritten by the Koch brothers. A self-styled agnostic about climate change, Bryce regularly attacks renewable energy. He especially loves to bash wind, carping about the industry’s temporary federal tax breaks over the last 20 years and its threat to birds. Never mind that the oil and gas industry received an average of $4.86 billion a year (in 2010 dollars) in permanent federal subsidies between 1918 and 2009 (that continue to today), or that oil and gas industry fluid waste pits kill roughly three times more birds a year than wind turbines. Bryce never mentions either of those salient facts.

Not-so-smart ALEC

Between 2006 and 2015, ExxonMobil gave $600,000 to the American Legislative Council, a secretive lobby group that drafts sample corporate-friendly legislation for state lawmakers. Last year, the oil company gave ALEC another $76,500.

Does ALEC also oppose a carbon tax and the Paris accord? You bet.

In 2013, ALEC drafted a sample resolution for state legislators to reject “all federal and state efforts to establish a carbon tax on fuels for electricity and transportation.” More recently, the director of ALEC’s Energy, Environment and Agriculture Task Force slammed the Paris agreement as a “bad deal” for America. “The Paris agreement is little more than an effort by the previous president to lend some international legitimacy to his destructive regulatory campaign against affordable domestic energy,” Kenneth Stein, a former legislative aide to Sen. Ted Cruz, wrote in May 25 essay on ALEC’s website. “As has been seen in any number of U.S. industries, regulation and rulemaking stifle progress and innovation—much more so when the regulations become part of an international treaty regime.”

Why bother with a carbon tax or an international carbon-reduction agreement if, as ALEC erroneously maintains, scientists haven’t determined the role human activity plays in global warming? “Climate change is a historical phenomenon,” its website states, “and the debate will continue on the significance of natural and anthropogenic contributions.”

More than 100 corporations have quit ALEC for a number of reasons, notably its scientifically indefensible position on climate change. Those companies include a number of energy sector heavyweights, including American Electric Power, BP, ConocoPhillips and Shell. But not ExxonMobil.

Meet the new boss...

The fact that ExxonMobil’s grantees contradict the company’s avowed positions on climate science and policy should come as no surprise. Its funding pattern in Congress is analogous. Over the years, the company has consistently rewarded legislators who reject mainstream climate science and vote against carbon tax resolutions by funding their reelection campaigns. Half of the nearly $1.45 million it spent on candidates in the 2016 election cycle, for example, went to 81 climate science deniers in the House and 24 in the Senate. And 18 of the 22 senators who sent a letter to President Trump urging him to abandon the Paris agreement collectively received $371,000 in campaign contributions from ExxonMobil between 2011 and 2016.

Rex Tillerson began playing this game soon after he became the company’s CEO in 2006. In January 2007, the Union of Concerned Scientists published a report documenting that between 1998 and 2005, ExxonMobil had spent at least $16 million on a network of more than 40 anti-regulation groups to manufacture doubt about climate science. A week after its release, Tillerson acknowledged that his company had a PR problem. “We recognize that we need to soften our public image,” he said, according to a January 10 story in Greenwire, a trade publication. “It is something we are working on.”

Ten years later, ExxonMobil’s PR offensive continues. Publicly, company officials repeatedly assure the news media and the general public they have seen the light. Climate change is indeed real and we need to address it. At the same time, however, ExxonMobil is still bankrolling climate disinformation groups and deniers in Congress to stymie government action.

In January, Darren Woods, who has been working for ExxonMobil since 1992, replaced Tillerson as CEO. So far, he’s the same as the old boss. His inaugural blog post, which champions natural gas as “powerful tool” to reduce carbon emissions and stresses the challenge of “managing the risks of climate change” while meeting growing worldwide energy demand, could have easily been written by Tillerson. And, like his predecessor, Woods dutifully reiterated ExxonMobil’s nominal support for a revenue-neutral carbon tax and the Paris agreement. But until the company stops funding climate science denier groups and the members of Congress standing in the way, it will remain a major obstacle to saving the planet from the worst consequences of climate change.

          About That Elephant   

See Part One of this Series Here:  Deck Chairs.
See Part Two Here:  Will the Real Subsidiarity Principle Please Stand Up?


In our continuing series about how to spend The Episcopal Church’s money strategically, to empower mission, ministry, and evangelism, today we are addressing the burning question:

  • What should we NOT be spending money on?



I will try to restrain myself from gleefully rubbing my hands together.  So many living room elephants to choose from – so little time!


Look, we don’t have enough money to do all the things the Church Center has done in the past.  Where to cut?  Two major arguments have been advanced:  cut governance (because it is too costly and cumbersome), and cut program (based on the subsidiarity principle). 

What huge white-elephant category of expenses is being ignored by both the anti-governance and the pro-subsidiarity arguments? 

Administration.  Administration at the Church Center is getting a free pass.

A few weeks ago I did an analysis of the proposed budget that divided it into 7 categories: the five Marks of Mission categories, and two additional categories: (6) Administration and  (7) Governance.  Since then, I have refined my analysis.  Some folks have rightly pointed out that the five Marks of Mission categories don’t include a classification for Other Good Things – like ecumenical relations, which everyone agrees should be done at a churchwide level and which aren’t really administrative in nature.  (I had included these costs in administration because there was no Marks of Mission category to put them in.) 

Therefore, I have added two new categories to my analysis:  (8) Building Religious Relationships (including ecumenical relations, Anglican Communion relations, and Federal Ministries); and (9) Stewardship & Leadership Development (including the Development Office, Congregational Vitality, Transition Ministries, the Office of Pastoral Development, etc.).  With these two new categories, the proposed churchwide budget breaks out as follows (if you would like to see my calculations, please email me at susansnook@thenativity.net):

Anglican Marks of Mission                                                 Amount         Percent

1. To proclaim the good news of the Kingdom                $  2,283,270      2.15%
2.  To teach, baptize, and nurture new believers               $     286,438      0.27%
3.  To respond to human need by loving service               $26,428,618     24.91%
4.  To seek to transform unjust structures                          $  4,600,551      4.34%
5.  To sustain, renew life of the earth                                  $     106,470      0.10%

Not included as marks of mission, but categorized as:
6.  Administration                                                                 $46,823,109    44.13%
7.  Governance                                                                      $12,298,810    11.59%
8.  Building Religious Relationships                                    $  5,207,010      4.91%
9.  Stewardship and Leadership Development                   $  8,067,497      7.60%


Do you see what I see?  After all is said and done, the glaring enormous over-inflated budget item is not Christian Formation, not at all.  It is Administration.  When pared down as noted above, it comprises over 44% of our churchwide budget. That doesn’t even count the cost of General Convention!  


Yes, Administration is the same category of expenses that gives us a finance office that costs over $7 million to run and can’t add a budget spreadsheet up correctly.  (I am sorry to have to point out the obvious.  I would rather be churchy-nice and not point out or ask for accountability for expensive mistakes.) 

It is also the same category of expenses that brings us an office building in Manhattan, the most expensive real estate on earth, based on that old Eisenhower-era hierarchical corporate headquarters model.  Based on the proposed budget, the costs of operating that piece of real estate are:

            Debt Service                                                  $ 8,700,000
            Facilities Management                                 $ 6,443,156
            Offset by Rental Income                              ( 4,050,000)
            Net Cost                                                        $11,093,156

I do not understand why we are going after Program Expenses before we go after the hyper-inflated costs of administration at the Church Center. 

Here’s what I propose: 

  • Sell, lease, or otherwise dispose of 815, and look for a more economic alternative elsewhere, such as using vacant space at cathedrals, seminaries, etc.  This will take some time, so it won’t save us money immediately – we need to understand this.  But there’s no more time to dither about it!  Do it!
  • Reduce the asking to the dioceses, and cut the total budget to $101 million (right now it stands at $106 million, counting the Development Office error explained here– it is a deficit budget of $1.25 million). 
  • Require that administrative expenses comprise no more than 35% of the 2013-2015 churchwide budget. That’s a significant decrease from the current 44% of the budget. In 2016-2018, the administrative percentage would be required to drop to 30%.  The phase-in allows some time to study the situation and make adjustments necessary.  (Note: the percentages depend on the way I have classified administrative expenses: for instance, I have included Communications, part of the cost of the PB’s office, etc.  If you quibble with the way I have calculated administration, fine, but if we change that, we need to change the percentages too.)
  • Freeze salaries at the Church Center.  The proposed budget includes across-the-board salary increases of 3% per year.  How many folks working for local churches get that kind of guaranteed raise these days?
  • Look into outsourcing certain departments like Human Resources, streamlining personnel in administrative departments, or other strategies for reducing administrative costs. 


Yes, we can also streamline governance expenses.  I am skeptical of the idea of holding a Special Convention (very expensive and unlikely to produce real change unless it is preceded by a real visioning and change process), but I certainly believe that we can “sunset” some CCABs and significantly reduce the expenses of others.  And we can consider ways to reduce the cost of General Convention itself, such as allowing much work to be done beforehand, electronically, or reducing deputation size. 

However, we cannot count on any cost savings for these possible changes in the current triennium, because they would require a constitutional convention, and no changes would take place this triennium. 

What we can do, right away, is address the unacceptable level of administrative expense at the Church Center.  We can make a real decision to sell 815 and move to a less-costly alternative, and we can realign our staffing structure, outsourcing some departments and streamlining others.  

We can do it because it’s worth it.  Because you and I aren’t writing those pledge checks every week so we can maintain  $46.8 million of administrative expenses.  We’re writing them because we believe in the mission, ministry, and evangelism of this church.  What we have is worth sharing, and it’s worth spending money on – strategically.  But not on elephants.

          May 2017 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
It's been five month since my last equity purchase. For the past five months, I was just sitting tight and collecting dividends as the market continued to go up. May was a bumper dividends month for me, as I received a total dividends of $1,494.91:

  • GBP 18.10 from British Land Co Plc
  • EUR 66.28 from Bayer Motoren WK
  • MYR 474.33 from Heineken Malaysia Bhd

          April 2017 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
As market continue it's momentum to the upside, return YTD was inching towards 3.42%, while XIRR YTD was 11.51% and XIRR since inception was 7.31% as of end April 2017. A significant fresh fund injection of $36,000 was made in April.

April was also a month with bumper dividends. Total dividends and interests received were $880,86 from:
  • AUD 116.54 from Telstra Corporation Limited
  • GBP 42.63 from BP PLC
  • HKD 1,288.31 from HSBC Holdings Plc

  • HKD 990.40 from PCCW
  • CNY 144.68 from CSOP China Ultra Short Term Bond ETF
  • $94.40 from M1
Portolio allocation was 45.58% equities and 54.52% bonds and cash.

Chow Tai Fook was the top performer from total return perspective. It gapped-up on 13 April and broke out it's HKD 8.00 resistance, as the multiyear sales decline had finally shown sign of turn around. Retail sales in mainland China increased 16%, with same-strore sales rising 12% during the three months that ended March 31. Overall retail sales in Hong Kong and Macau grew 1%, and same-store sales rose 4% — the first quarterly increase in three years in Hong Kong and Macau. I sat on +88.95% return from capital appreciation and dividends received. Should I sell and take profit or stand still on the soon-to-be double bagger in my portfolio?

          March 2017 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
My low cost portfolio continued to do well in March 2017. Return YTD as end of March was 2.24%, XIRR YTD was 9.56%, and XIRR since inception was 6.4%. Total dividends received in March was $434.92:
  • $274.34 from Capitaland Retail China Trust
  • GBP 34.16 from Royal Dutch Shell PLC-B
  • GBP 58.67 from BHP Billiton PLC
The month of March was also the month of rights issue. I applied for a total of 2100 rights (1,044 rights and 1,056 excess) from Ascott Residence Trust, and I was granted 1,900 rights at $0.919 per unit. I also applied for the rights issued by Deutsche Bank and received 80 units at EUR 11.65 per unit.

In term of portfolio component stock performance, Global Logistic was the star performer based on CAGR calculation (+101.10%), and Chow Tai Fook from total return perspective (+65.14%). BT Group PLC was the bottom performer from both CAGR (-33.62%)  and total return (-21.39%).

          February 2017 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
Boring market with no buying opportunity, so I do not have much to update. The only consolation in February was bumper dividends. I received a total of SGD 1,001.29 in dividends from the following:
  • GBP 27.52 from BT Group P
  • USD 59.74 from ABF PAIF
  • GBP 18.09 from British Land Co PLC
  • SGD 328.60 from STI ETF
  • SGD 112.56 from Capitaland Commercial Trust
  • SGD 53.25 from First REIT
  • SGD 63.00 from Starhill Global REIT
  • SGD 158.12 from Ascott REIT
  • SGD 120.96 from Capitaland Mall Trust
Total dividends received as of 28 Feb 2017 was SGD 1,153.15, a +121.18% growth compared to SGD 521.36 in the same period last year. Portfolio return YTD was 1.75%, XIRR YTD was 11.45%, and XIRR since inception was 6.43% as of 28 Feb 2017. Equity allocation was 47.89%, and bond allocation was 52.11%.

          January 2017 - Low Cost Portfolio ScoreCard   
I had been super busy with work and didn't really have the time to update my portfolio. From the way this year started, it seemed I would have less time to blog this year.

January 2017 started with a bang. My portfolio grew by a decent SGD 7,379.14 including dividend. Return YTD was 1.46%, XIRR YTD 18.61%, and XIRR since inception at 6.68%. Will the portfolio grow in this rate for the remaining of the year? I doubt it will.

I received dividends of:
  • SGD 95.20 from Singtel
  • HKD 309.96 from Vanguard FTSE AS High Dividend
I have no transactions in January and I may be looking at selling some if market continues to go up. Portfolio allocation was 47.92% equity vs 51.28% bond/cash.

          December 2016 - Low Cost Portfolio ScoreCard   
The final scorecard for my low cost portfolio is out. XIRR for 2016 was 7.85% and XIRR since inception increased to 5.25%. Total dividend in December was HKD 1,795.51 and GBP 74.28. This brought total dividend for 2016 to $3,665.85.

The portfolio started with a value of $107k in January and ended in December with a value of $505k. Most of the portfolio growth came from re-investment of proceeds from Unit Trust portfolio liquidation (~$279k) and fresh fund injection ($98k). Net profit was $20K from both capital gain and dividends.

I have 2 buy transactions in December:
  • Singtel 1100 shares @ $3.65
  • Ascott REIT 3600 shares @ $1.135

I'm grateful that God allows my investment portfolio to exceed the targeted 4% long term return in 2016. I'm also glad that my investment portfolio reached the half million mark for the first time, which was a significant milestone for me.

I wish everyone a Happy and Prosperous 2017!

          November 2016 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
Many medias spread fears during the US president election, by injecting a market sell-off expectation should Donald Trump became the elected president of US. What happened eventually was the reverse. Markets rallied strongly, especially US. DJI is just a few points away from 20,000 psychology resistance. Even the lackluster STI breached 2900 as a result.

Will the rally continue in 2700? Only God knows! My part is to stick with the plan and probably be slightly defensive in my portfolio management.

As a result of the rally in equities, low cost portfolio XIRR YTD was 7.4% as of 30 November. XIRR since inception went back above 4% at 4.54%, beating CPF SA return, which I used as a benchmark for my low cost portfolio.
  • CapitaRetail China Trust 5800 shares @ $1.3875
  • CapitaMall Trust 4200 shares @ 1.9075
  • SIA Engineering 1200 shares @ 3.45
  • VanEck Vectors Gold Miners UCITS ETF (GDX.L) 140 shares @ USD 21.56
  • Heineken Malaysia Bhd (2836.KL) 800 shares @ MYR 15.7275
  • Carlsberg Brewery Malaysia Bhd (3255.KL) 900 shared @ MYR 13.78

I injected $4,000 fresh fund and received total dividends of $214.00 and GBP 18.09 in November. Dividends received were:
  • GBP 18.09 from British Land Co PLC  
  • $36.00 from SIA
  • $60.00 from Starhub
  • $53.00 from First REIT
  • $65.00 from Starhill Global REIT

Total portfolio value as of 30 November was about $3,000 shy of the half million mark, with 46.53% in equity and 53.47% in bonds & cash.

          September 2016 - Low Cost Portfolio Scorecard   
My low cost portfolio received a significant injection of cash from unit trust portfolio liquidation. A total of $221,000 was added in the month of September alone. Because of the cash injection, equity allocation decreased from 47% to 26%. To re-balance the portfolio, I planned to make a number of purchases with the intention to increase the equity allocation gradually to around 50% in the next few months. The September purchases increased my equity allocation from 26% to 33%:
  • Sembcorp Industries 1500 shares @ $2.69
  • M1 1600 shares @ $2.53
  • PCCW (0008.HK) 5000 shares @ HKD 5.01
  • BT Group PLC (BT-A.L) 580 shares @ GBP 3.864
  • BP PLC (BP.L) 530 shares @ GBP 4.2475
  • Global Logistic Properties (GLP) 2200 shares @ $1.835
  • HSBC (0005.HK) 400 shares @ HKD 57.95 (add to existing position)

  • Greggs PLC (GRG.L) 220 shares @ GBP 10.0272
  • Hugo Boss AG (BOSS.DE) 55 shares @ EUR 47.685

Aside of equity purchase, I also bought Fullerton Short Term Interest Rate Fund C and United SGD Fund Cl A (Acc) to increase my fix income allocation. In September, I received dividends of GBP 18.40 from BHP Billiton PLC, HKD 303.38 from HSBC, $70 from UOB, and HKD 659.52 from China Mobile. XIRR YTD was at 7.91% and XIRR since inception was at 3.78%.

          How Does Yaruzi's Low Cost Portfolio Stack Up?   
I was curious on how my low cost portfolio has performed, compared to similar fund managed by professional fund managers. As my portfolio was incepted on 30 March 2015, I used 2 year annualized return of balanced funds for bench-marking. Balanced fund invest in both equities and fix income.

The result is rather encouraging, as my portfolio rank #14 and beat 70% of professionally managed balanced fund (see table below). Balanced funds that was less than 2 years were excluded. On a YTD basis, my low cost portfolio with return of 9.76% will rank #4 and beat 94% of the other 58 balanced fund. On a longer term basis e.g. 10 years, there is only 1 fund that return more than 4%, which is First State Bridge. I guess overall not too bad huh?




          Unit Trust Portfolio - The Finale   
I liquidated all my unit trusts in Fundsupermart on 29 Aug 2016. I received sale proceeds of $279,816.26. XIRR YTD was 8.32% and XIRR since inception was 2.52%. Not impressive, but the positive thing was I didn't lose money and I felt liberated from the need to pay platform fee! After about 4 years and 2 months investing in unit trusts, I finally decided to consolidate my investment fund in my very own portfolio.

Dividends and distributions received in August was $268.61. All proceeds will be re-invested in my low cost portfolio. With this significant cash injection, my low cost portfolio equity allocation dropped to a low of 20%. That was the reason I made quite a number of purchase in September.

          Seattle's Tech Community Is Fighting Trump One Piece of Code at a Time   
From the Airport Lawyer app to hackathons, Seattle's programmers are resisting the best ways they know how. by Amber Cortes

If you happened to be walking through Westlake Park on the afternoon of March 1, you may have missed the Seattle-area "Tech Employees for Diversity and Inclusion" protest. It was only a handful of people holding signs and chanting: "No hate, no fear, everyone is welcome here!"

On Facebook, 334 people said they were interested in the event, 74 marked themselves as "going," but there couldn't have been more than a couple dozen people who actually showed up. And compared to the Women's March, which drew 175,000 people in Seattle alone, and the immigration rights protests that had sprung up recently in response to the new administration, it was sort of a sorry sight.

"The problem with this industry," explains Raine Dargis, "is that there are too many introverts. We need extroverts to organize a protest." Dargis, one of the organizers (and a self-described introvert), is a software engineer at what she calls "a big company"—but she won't say its name.

The big tech companies, for their part, have been fighting Trump on the legal front over immigration and visas—two issues that affect their ability to hire skilled workers in the tech field. Apple, Twitter, Facebook, Microsoft, and Google were among the 127 companies that filed court papers against Trump's executive order on immigration February 6. And tech companies like Microsoft are looking for ways to find exceptions to Trump's crackdown on H-1B visas. But oftentimes, tech employees themselves can't associate any political causes with the companies where they work (for instance, workers were asked not to wear any company logos to the protest).

Despite the disappointing turnout, Dargis says, the tech community—not the companies themselves, but the people who work there—is well-positioned to fight Trump, if they could ever get out from behind their computers. But maybe for them, the best way to fight Trump is from their keyboards.

In Seattle, a decidedly liberal-minded sanctuary city, resistance has come from many quarters, some of which have been people coding up a storm—making apps to connect immigrants with legal help, saving valuable data from being destroyed, and helping make sense of the latest onslaught of confusing, rapid-fire Trump news.

But can a community made up of the same people who brought you delivery drones and perfected the art of getting everything you need with a push of a button without ever having to leave your house deal with the messy realities of going beyond the screen to make things happen IRL? Can the tech community, with its privilege and disposable income, actually connect with grassroots movements to make the tools we need to help defeat Trump?

Among the waves of weary travelers making their way through Sea-Tac Airport on an early Saturday morning stands a well-dressed but unassuming man named Hussain Rachou. The look on his face ranges from excited to deeply anxious, as he switches between scanning who is coming up the escalators to checking his phone.

"My mother. My sister from Germany. Friend from Eugene," he says, almost flinching every time his phone alerts him to a new message, and then sighing when it's not the text he is expecting. "They all want to know what is happening."

Rachou is a Syrian refugee who is just minutes away from reuniting with his family—a wife and two sons, ages 8 and 9—after two years apart. By his side is lawyer Takao Yamada, who has been at the airport since 7 a.m. and is now digging through his contacts to find out what the delay is. He is reassuring Rachou that a more than two-hour wait for Syrian refugees coming out of customs with seven suitcases is, in fact, to be expected.

Since the days and weeks after the smoke cleared from the so-called "Muslim ban" protests at Sea-Tac, Yamada noticed that it was difficult to coordinate matching up lawyers with travelers who arrived at the airport and were at risk of being detained and sent back.

Even though it looks like this particular refugee story will have a happy ending, many don't. Which is why Yamada invented Airport Lawyer—an app where travelers or their families can submit contact and flight-arrival information ahead of time so on-site lawyers can be arranged. Yamada had been wanting to do something substantial for the struggle since election night—when he had been serving as election protection for the Clinton campaign, monitoring the polls as a legal field volunteer. When the polls closed, Yamada drove back to the hotel thinking Clinton had won. When he got to his room, alone, it was a different story. "Needless to say, I had a lot of time to think," he says.

He teamed up with the International Refugee Assistance Project and assembled a small group to help build the app over a weekend. Now Airport Lawyer is used in 30 airports across country, and he's working with Sea-Tac Airport to display more permanent signage.

For Yamada, who had members of his family put into Japanese internment camps, the struggle against Trump's immigration ban is personal. "Singling out people is very dangerous to me," he says.

In addition to being a lawyer, Yamada is an entrepreneur with a background in politics and policy work—he was the deputy campaign manager for Judge Mary Yu, once owned a restaurant in Philadelphia, and is the cofounder of a tech start-up that is creating a digital trading platform for the cannabis industry.

Airport Lawyer, Yamada says, is a "crisis agnostic tool"—perfect for the resistance because it was built quickly and is easy to replicate over and over in different situations—things the tech industry does well and can use as ammunition against Trump.

"Tech workers will be building the weapons we're going to use to fight this administration," he says, "and being able to marshal that force is something that I think the start-up community can do really effectively." But one challenge, Yamada says, is tech's penchant for perfectionism.

"Engineers and developers want to build really great things. But sometimes we don't need really great things," he says. "Sometimes we need really simple, shitty things that are going to work."

Yamada is turning his attention to other projects as well—creating "tools that will help turn interest into action through technology," like Democratizer, an app that helps activists find protests and actions around issues like civil rights, women's rights, and the environment. These tools, he says, maximize the impact that the tech community can wield in the opposition landscape.

"Take the dozen people who helped make Airport Lawyer in 48 hours—they'll make no difference at a protest. Not to say they shouldn't go. They should, everybody should," Yamada says. "But the impact those people had by using their tech skills in a politically-oriented way wildly maximized the impact they have. And I think that should be an aspirational goal for everyone."


It's a Saturday afternoon, and all the orange seats in the "Active Learning Classroom" at Odegaard Library are filled with people staring at laptops. There's some low-level chatter and the sound of the quiet hum of computers as application engineers, web developers, scientists, librarians, and "regular" people sit at round tables and try to save data sets from disappearing under the trigger fingers of a climate-change-denying Trump administration.

The Data Refuge Project—a nationwide collaborative effort in tandem with the Internet Archive, an online archive of more than 286 billion web pages, seeks to preserve and protect federal data and government information that supports environmental research. The project has generated large data-saving events like this one in satellite cities across the country.

Seattle co-organizer Will Smith is stunned at the turnout. "I figured it would be like nerds only," he jokes, "but you know, right on." Smith describes himself as a "hobbyist," not a programmer. "I just do this shit at home."

Smith, who also moonlights as the sound guy for experimental hiphop duo Shabazz Palaces, informs me that there's more to the layout of this room than meets the eye—from end to end, it operates like a well-oiled, online-data-preserving machine.

There are the "seeders"—tables populated by "interested citizens that are not particularly programming-centric," Smith explains, who nominate websites to download from government servers in order to back up elsewhere. At a nearby table, "harvesters" do the actual downloading and repackaging of the data found by the seeders—adding custom metadata to organize the information. Finally, "checkers" and "baggers" look at what that the harvesters have grabbed, making sure that the data set is complete.

By the end of the day, they will have pored over hundreds of websites from all over the world, and thousands of gigs of data will have been cataloged, saved, and backed up on an independent server and stored with the Internet Archive.

"I believe that data is a public good," says co-organizer Mary Gifford. Gifford moved to Seattle last year—she works in the private sector as the vice president of content and strategic partnerships for Silicon Valley start-up Tribal Planet ("Such a start-up title!" she laughs)—but prior to that was at the United Nations doing climate-change work.

She admits she's "not really the activist type," but after reading about how the Trump administration instructed the Environmental Protection Agency to take down the climate-change page from its website, she felt that "there are certain things that you need to stand up for."

"Regardless of your politics," she continues, "there's data that could be crucial for other things further on that we don't even know about. To me, it's the equivalent of modern-day book burning, really."

Gifford also volunteers her time with Data for Good, a Seattle group that connects hundreds of data scientist volunteers to issues in Seattle that could use some good old-fashioned data (like finding collision risk factors at key intersections in Seattle, for example). Along with Data for Democracy, which recently hosted a hackathon at Ada's Technical Books on 15th Avenue in partnership with the National Immigration Law Center, there are more than enough nerds in this town to get something done when it comes to fighting Trump.

"I think it shows tremendous promise," she says. "If you had the skills to develop a bunch of tools that would sell sneakers online, why wouldn't you use those skills for other things, too—right?"

Specifically, programmers are using their skills today to work on saving records of experiments—tables charting sea level rise, tidal information from measurement stations, and more. For the last few hours, Will Weatherford, a software engineer who specializes in using the Python programming language, and Dylan Hutchison, a computer-science graduate student at the University of Washington, have been writing simple Python scripts to mass-archive data sets from places like the National Renewable Energy Laboratory, NASA, and the EPA.

"You could say," Hutchinson muses, "that this is a form of nonviolent resistance. So if the policy is to revoke information related to climate change, then we resist that policy by making that information perpetually available, so that we can continue to study and act on climate change."

While it's maybe not as flashy as taking to the streets in a roar of mass civil unrest in pink pussy hats, Hutchinson insists writing Python scripts on a Saturday in a library is an equally valuable use of their time—and skills.

"There are many venues of activism," he says, "and they don't just have to be the visible 'Let's get out on the streets with signs and have sit-ins' kinds of actions."

"This is kind of a sit-in," Weatherford jokes. "We've been sitting here for a really long time."


Every day since Trump took office, Matt Kiser has woken up at six in the morning. He grabs a coffee and scans thousands of news sources on the administration's latest exploits. It sounds like a shitty way to start the day. But Kiser is dedicated to the cause—aggregating news for his website, whatthefuckjusthappenedtoday.com and corresponding daily newsletter (now at more than 80,000 subscribers).

What the Fuck Just Happened Today (WTFJHT) tells you exactly that—it's a daily aggregated record "logging the shock and awe" of every executive order, weird POTUS tweet, ongoing Russian intrigue, and controversy surrounding the state of national politics.

The website boasts a clean, navigable design (days are listed in the header) packed with easily digestible information. Each day starts off with a short title (Day 71: Tumultuous; Day 22: Denials; Day 4: The Upside Down) and lists news items broken down as bullet points, with the occasional embedded tweet or quote. Kiser set up the blog so that it is open-source and hosted on GitHub, so that others could make CSS tweaks and pull requests to edit the content.

"I thought it would be a really interesting idea to take a blog, but treat it the way software development works, make it really agile, use version control, and open it up to collaborate with other developers on the project," he explains.

A former "super-political skate punk kid," Kiser was active in the mid-2000s during the Bush years, but, like many leftist-progressive types, grew a little complacent and took a back seat during Obama's term. After trying to become a music journalist in New York City, Kiser focused on reinventing his career instead, moving out to Seattle and taking coding classes at General Assembly. But Trump's election was a wake-up call, and an opportunity to use his newly developed coding skills.

"I guess I find it funny that the flash point for this project had to be the outcome of the election. But I think that also speaks to the environment we're in right now, culturally," he said.

Which is the reason he invented WTFJHT—to keep up with the "daily atrocities" coming out of the White House and Congress—and the feeling of confusion that comes with how to stay informed amid all the chaos.

"Like, US national politics suck right now, the guy in the White House sucks right now. I'm upset, and I can't even keep up with what the fuck is going on! And I'm kind of a news junkie. So how could anyone else possibly keep up with this if they're a 'normal' person?" he says.

Kiser's original plan was to document Trump's first 100 days in office, as a kind of personal challenge to himself. "I mean, it was definitely supposed to just be a side project," Kiser says. But as of last week, it's become more than that—Kiser just quit his position as a project manager at a tech start-up to manage WTFJHT full-time.

In his efforts to help people not be so overwhelmed, Kiser admits, he feels... overwhelmed. Not only by the demands of keeping up with WTJFHT's growth, but with the surfeit of civic-engagement-friendly tech products created since the election, that, ironically, are meant to make it easier for the average person to get involved.

"There are like a million uncoordinated projects running around. There are so many daily-action-app-text-message-e-mail-website-blogs going around, and all those spreadsheets. Have you seen all the spreadsheets?" he asks, exasperated.

Of course, any decent tech resistance staying true to its open-source roots is going to be decentralized—relying on online forums and Slack message boards to plan actions and brainstorm prototypes among large groups of people living in different places. On one hand, you could say it's a plus—giving the movement a flexible, resilient edge (if one system goes down, there are others to quickly take its place), making it not reliant on place and time (like a protest), and giving individuals the power that comes with a sense of anonymity.

Who better than hackers and tech people, for example, to teach us how to wipe our phones before getting searched by a customs agent, or how to set up our VPN networks when the corporate powers that be come calling after Congress votes to sell our private online information to the highest bidder?

But the fragmentation of a base always comes with a price—in this case, it's the silos that come with trying to build savvy tech solutions in a bubble.

"So I'm a tech person, and I'm good at this thing, and I want to do something, so I decide I'm going to make a web app or whatever, or get some data, or build this experience. And I think what's missing is a connection back to people. What do people actually want? What's the problem we are actually solving?" Kiser asks.

Takao Yamato also agrees, saying engineers need to connect with activists to build accurate "user stories" around their immediate needs.

"I think the tech and the start-up community will be most effective within the activist community," he says. "Smaller organizations, which have really narrowly tailored needs that can be met by tools built in a weekend that can dramatically change their work."

It's clear that the tech resistance, whatever it is, needs to put down roots with the grassroots communities leading the charge against Trump or all those well-intentioned civic good projects will go the way of Apple's G4 cube, Ello (remember them?), or Microsoft's doomed media player, Zune.

"I think it's a really big miss on our part," Kiser says. "We should be aligning people who want to build digital products with people who have real experience organizing communities. And it's like, how do you find them? Where are all the organizers for all of this?"


{{ image:2 }}

One of those organizers may be Tiffany Chan. She's young, motivated, and eager to build bridges between the tech world and many of the communities she supports as a grassroots community organizer. Chan has recently joined the leadership team at Open Seattle—another group, like Data for Good, that builds technology-focused projects and "prototype solutions" for local civic issues.

The Open Seattle meetings take place at Socrata, a company that provides cloud-based data visualization and analysis tools for working with government data. The well-lit, carpeted hallways are lined with top-notch Mac desktops and busy-looking whiteboards. The space has the slick hipster playfulness of your typical tech company; in the lounge, there's a full kitchen, a fancy coffee maker, an entire shelf with an almost obscene variety of hot sauces, and a basket full of rubber duckies and other toys set up on a long stainless-steel table.

Chan was invited to join Open Seattle through her environmental and racial-justice work—she liked the concept of civic engagement, so she went to a meeting.

"And for me," she says, "I was just wondering like, who was in the room? Because as a community organizer, one of the things you always look out for is 'What is being asked? What's the goal?' I saw a lot of tech people, and their intent was good. I heard a pitch about homelessness, which was cool, but there wasn't really anybody from the homeless community there. I didn't really see any direct connection to the people they were trying to help."

It solidified Chan's resolve to connect eager-to-help tech workers with the communities they live in—and, ironically, push out of town when they gentrify a neighborhood. But Chan insists it's important to "take into account the individual actions, but also the institutional, systemic ones." For example, she says, she drives a car sometimes, but she opposes the oil industry.

"The reality is that we live in a system that's oppressive. So finding ways to collaborate together, to ally, I feel like that's my approach to dismantling it," Chan explains. "And I believe there's room for everybody in the movement."

As a lifelong resident of Beacon Hill, Chan has seen that gentrification firsthand. "But so far," she says, "we still know all of our neighbors, luckily." When she was a teenager, Chan was bused to Roosevelt High School in the North End as part of an exchange program. She volunteered at the Woodland Park Zoo and started hearing about environmentalism and sustainability, "which just created a different perspective and lens for looking at things."

She got involved in environmental-justice work, first at the zoo and then for Earth Corps. Right now, she's working with Facebook to organize a hackathon for the environment on April 28. In her work, she wants to invite tech workers to collaborate, while also making sure they confront their privilege. At Open Seattle, for example, she brought in food from businesses owned by people of color to replace the usual boxes of pizza.

"Because one thing I find in the tech community is that certain things are always just kind of done, like little magical elves or owls come in, and the free sodas are always stocked and the floors are always magically clean," she says. "And I was like, 'Yeah, those are people doing that work for you.' And I think with grassroots organizing, it's always us doing that work. We don't have free food all the time."

Chan has had a lot of "tough conversations" about race and privilege, and her advice for tech workers who want to help is simple: Show up. "Not only do we then have the emotions and the passion behind the movement, but also the data and the information to make our arguments and actions more objective." Resistance-minded tech products, Chan says, should be designed around real-life experiences. "I think pairing those two things makes our movement to resist the Trump era that much stronger."

The March for Science on Saturday, April 22, was a chance to do just that: In Seattle, thousands of scientists, techies, and concerned citizens showed up to protest the Trump administration's growing siege on the EPA, its refusal to acknowledge climate-change data, and the funding cuts for research programs.

"You know things are serious," one sign said, "when the introverts arrive." recommended

          El crecimiento de las licencias CC y The Commons   
Hace poco en Linotipo Victor R. Ruiz publicaba: España, primer país del mundo en adopción de Creative Commons.
No es una sorpresa, sino una tendencia que se puede medir desde 2007 el crecimiento de las licencias CC en general de las que además un porcentaje muy importante, hasta el 47% está dentro de las categorías más permisivas (By (10%) + By,Sa (37%)). La gráfica de volumen de obras por jurisdicciones que publica Linotipo es muy clara:

grafica creative commons by jurisdiction volume


No creo que yo pueda hacer un análisis ni la mitad de bueno que Víctor: lectura obligada.

De este volumen mi modesta contribución son algo más de 18.000 fotos en mi cuenta de Flickr, alrededor de 300 posts entre unos blogs y otros, unos 90 guiones de cómic.


The Commons
Lo que me llama la atención es que mientras la adopción de licencias CC por parte de los usuarios es, según los datos, tan importante a nivel mundial, otra cosa son las instituciones. Flickr empezó hace dos años (enero 2008) el proyecto The Commons, con dos objetivos tan claros y simples como interesantes:
  • Aumentar el acceso a colecciones fotográficas de dominio público y
  • Proporcionar un medio para que el público general aporte información y conocimientos (los usuarios añaden información y etiquetas, corrigen errores de clasificación)
The Commons es una manera de hacer que un patrimonio de imágenes salga de las cajas de los museos y se conozca y por tanto se pueda amar.

Ahora mismo (abril 2010) ya participan 30 instituciones de todo el mundo, difundiendo a través de Flickr colecciones de imágenes en Dominio Público.

¿Cuántas instituciones de España?: Cero, 0, ninguna.

En The Commons se encuentra una diversidad enorme de materiales, pero ahora selecciono 4 fotografías recientes, de 4 fotógrafos que foman parte fundamental de la Historia de la Fotografía:

          When You Have Nothing to Say   
I made a commitment to post to this blog once a day this week. I thought that it would not be a problem. I had plenty going on and a lot of things to discuss. Well, it is Thursday and the best that I can do is write a post about how I can't write a post.

Sure, there are plenty of things that I COULD discuss today, but most of those things still fall in the "Work In Progress" category. I have my potential exhibit for SL11B. I could go on about that for a few days, but I am going to wait until after applications for exhibits close on May 20th, to reveal the concept behind my exhibit.
I have destinations and designers in Second Life that I could discuss, but I need to get some pictures taken before I post on those topics. I have my studio that I could discuss, but I still have no land to build it on, so right now it is just a vision in my head of what might be coming. i have that other big project that I am working on. Right now, It is just a couple of drawings, a lot of typed notes, and a spreadsheet. Hopefully, I will be able to make it more than that in a few days.

So now I have wasted a few minutes typing a blog post but saying nothing. Well, at least, I can say that I kept to my goal and posted one today.

          How to use Microsoft Excel's Conditional Formatting   

Microsoft Excel's conditional formatting is a wonderful "automatic" feature that allows you to formats cells based on the value of those cells or the value of the formulas in those cells. For example, you can specify that all the sales totals in your spreadsheet that exceed $5,000 are highlighted in yellow; or all the dates prior to the current year use a dark-green font; or use a shape or ratings icon to flag all duplicate values above 12,000. The options are endless and, in addition to all the preset formats, you can create your own custom formatting rules.

The best thing about this feature is that it provides a quick snapshot of your spreadsheet when you view it or show it to others. Because the formatting is based on values, you don't have to do anything to make it work except update your data.

          Voting Rights Roundup: Trump's 'Election Integrity Commission' signals upcoming voter suppression   

Leading Off

Voter Suppression: In May, Donald Trump created a “Voting Integrity Commission” that we knew was purely a pretext to promote voter suppression nationwide. Now this panel has launched its opening salvo and confirmed its true purpose. The board is proposing to scrutinize each state’s voter registration records and intimidate the states into conducting voter purges—and it’s named America’s most prominent voter-fraud scaremonger to the commission itself. These actions are designed to give Trump and congressional Republicans an excuse to impose new voting restrictions at the national level.

Led by vice chair Kris Kobach, Kansas’ Republican secretary of state and one of the country’s foremost crusaders for voting restrictions, Trump’s commission has requested that every state send in its voter registration records in their entirety. For some states, these records would include voters’ names, addresses, birth dates, the last four digits of their Social Security numbers, party affiliation, the history of which elections they’ve voted in over the last decade, their registration status in another state, their military status, and whether they have felony convictions—in other words, quite a lot of personal information.

Although registration information is technically public, states have restrictions on with whom it can be shared and how, given the obvious privacy concerns with such sensitive data. While the federal government already has access to some of these statistics for every voter, the commission itself is required to make all documents it receives available to the general public, which would effectively defeat the attempts that the states have made to safeguard this information.

Kobach will likely abuse these registration records to demonstrate examples of the same person voting more than once in an attempt to claim that voter fraud is widespread. These examples will be bogus, though. Kobach has done this very same thing with his national “Crosscheck” system, which he’s convinced over 30 states to adopt. Crosscheck is notoriously riddled with inaccurate information, since it often compares just a few data points to suss out duplicate registrations, such as name and birthdate, leading to many false positives. (How many guys do you want to bet are named James Smith with a birthday of April 20? A lot, no doubt.) Election experts have estimated that Crosscheck could disenfranchise 200 valid voters for every one actual case of double registration that it eliminates.

Many Democratic state elections officials have refused Kobach's request, while even a few Republicans have said they will only comply with the legal bare minimum and won't submit private data. (Operative Matt Berg is keeping track of all the responses.) In a fitting ironic twist of incompetence, Kobach himself is unable to supply all of the requested information because of Kansas state law. Unfortunately, Kobach will likely enough get the information he needs from more pliant Republican officials in order to be able to falsely claim that voting irregularities are widespread.

          Interview with Robin Stevens - Murder Is Bad Manners   
The US cover of Murder is Bad Manners
Dear Robin, 

Amy B: Welcome to the U.S.!
Robin Stevens: Thank you! It’s lovely to be here at last!
AB: I discovered your book "Murder Most Unladylike" when it first came out in the UK and I had to order it from the UK to read.  Now it's here in the U.S. with its new title "Murder is Bad Manners". You're originally from the U.S. yourself, although you moved when you were quite young.  Do you think Americans read mysteries differently from UK readers?
RS: I am! I was born in California, and still hold an American passport. I’m proud of belonging to both countries, and actually, Daisy and Hazel are as much influenced by Nancy Drew and Encyclopedia Brown as they are by Poirot and the Famous Five. I think that we all bring our own cultural experience to the books we read, so I’m very pleased that you guys are going to see my heroines in the context of all of the American mysteries I grew up on – stuff that my British readers miss!
AB: Wells & Wong could easily have been Wells & Wagner or Wells & Watkins.  What made you decide that Hazel Wong's family was from Hong Kong.  Did you plan that or did you discover she was from Hong Kong as you wrote your book?
RS: Hazel’s nationality was one of the first things I knew about the book, actually. Most of my own friends at school were Hong Kong Chinese, so I grew up hearing their stories about their home lives, and the differences they noticed between England and Hong Kong. I think I connected to them because we were all from non-traditional English boarding school backgrounds: none of us fit in, and all of us slightly felt as though we were intruding on something. And, as a kid who read a lot of boarding school stories, I noticed that people who thought like us – and looked like them – didn’t feature at all. That made me cross, and I decided that when I wrote my own boarding school stories, I’d do something to redress the balance.
AB: I would imagine that a mystery writer has to be more of a plotter than a pantser.  Is this true?  What types of things surprised you even after you nailed your plot down?
RS: After a very painful redraft of Murder is Bad Manners when I first signed with my agent, I decided that I needed to learn how to be a plotter. I’m now fanatical about nailing down the exact events around each one of my murders – I do a huge spreadsheet with each character’s actions filled in in five or ten minute slots, to make sure that everyone’s alibis check out, and the right people see each other at the right time. Other than that, though, I’m looser – I have a basic idea of where I’m going and how I want to get there, but I like to leave room for my characters to breathe. I have to keep myself interested as I write – it’s a story I’m telling myself, so I’ve got to want to keep going!
AB: As an elementary school librarian I find that my students are always up for a good mystery. What is it about mysteries, do you think, that are so captivating for children?
RS: I think it’s partly the puzzle, and partly the rush of a pacy, exciting story – but I think the pull for kids also has a lot to do with the fact that they’re seeing people like them, totally in control of the story. Child detectives aren’t just the heroes, they’re driving the entire plot, and at the end of the day they get to outsmart the adults. That is so exciting to see when you’re nine and you spend your real life being ordered around by the grown-ups in your life.
AB: "Bunbreaks" seem to be an integral part of life in a 1930s boarding school and Murder Is Bad Manners.  Please describe for our American readers what exactly this entails.
RS: Bunbreak is a very exciting and important concept that I learned when I was at school. It’s really just another word for morning break – we would pause lessons at 11am and eat some cookies or a slice of cake – but it was the highlight of the day for us, as it is for Hazel and Daisy. I’ve slightly broadened the concept of bunbreak to mean any moment when you stop what you’re doing to enjoy a sweet treat, and it’s caught on hugely over here. A lot of my readers have taken pictures of themselves having a bunbreak with the book, and I hope Americans will embrace it in the same way.
AB: And finally, if readers wanted to sound particularly 1930s British, what expression would you have us add to our vocabulary?  

RB: Ooh! I do like spiffing (fantastic) for everyday use. I’m also a fan of words like waxy (angry) and pax (peace) – some of them have made it into the book, but some had to be cut. I read a lot of 1930s books and I love soaking up the language in them.

AB: Thank you Robin for taking time to answer my questions. I can't wait to see what Wells & Wong are up to next.

          What's the Plan, Stan?   
Whoops..I have been MIA from this blog for way too long, not sure if any friends or family are even still reading! I apologize for disappearing for two months, and I promise to blog more regularly. Life just somehow got way too crazy, and I inadvertantly neglected Healthy Eating on a Dime. So, if anyone is still there, here goes nothing.

For me, weekly grocery shopping and meal planning go hand in hand. I compile my grocery list using the weekly sales circular for my local grocery store. I typically do my grocery shopping for the week on Sundays.  Prior to heading to the store, I sit down and plan a tentative list of meals for each night. Meal planning is an important part of both saving money and healthy eating.  

I have several go to recipes, but I am a big fan of trying new recipes. Every week I always seem to come across new recipes I can't wait to cook. I use an excel spreadsheet to type up my shopping list. This keeps my list very organized, and I have it set to auto sum my spending totals to save me time doing calculations. Here is the step by step for how I plan my weekly grocery shop.

My favorite page of the sales flyer--the fresh produce, yum!
(Sorry for the poor picture quality...I had to use my phone because my camera is currently MIA)

1) Skim through sales flyer and circle deals that I think I want to add to my grocery list.
2) Use a coupon website such as The Krazy Coupon Lady or I Heart Publix to help me save time matching up coupons to the weekly deals I plan to take advantage of in my grocery store sales flyer.
3) Then in my excel spreadsheet, I type up the following headings: item, # to buy, price each (for each item), price (total price before coupons--may be different from each price if buying multiple of one item), coupons (this is where I list any corresponding coupons that I will be using), and final price (this is the price after coupons for that item). This makes it really easy to keep track of what I will be buying and what I will be spending.
4) The first items I add to my excel spreadsheet are always sales promotions I don't want to miss out on. These are not necessarily items I will be using this week. They are items I want to stock up on for another week because I can get a good deal on them either with or without a coupon. This might be something along the lines of frozen or canned vegetables, frozen fruit, cereal, oatmeal, fish, chicken, lean beef etc. Also note, when I say stocking up, I do NOT mean in the style of TLC's Extreme Couponing. Since Publix does a lot of buy one, get one free promotions, I typically stock up on 2 or 4 of a particular item depending on how good the deal is and how frequently we use the item.
5) The next set of items I add to my list are fresh fruit. Opting for in season fruits can help you save on your grocery bill. I try to stick to the fruits listed on sale in my grocery flyer each week, which are usually fruits that are in season. Since the sale fruits will differ from week to week, I never find that I get bored of my fruit choices. In fact, in the past, I had always bought pretty much the same favorite fruits from week to week, but now I find that I incorporate a lot more variety in to my fruit choices!
6) At this point, I would now make my meal plan list for the week. When choosing recipes, I try to choose recipes that incorporate mostly ingredients that are on sale. I especially focus on the vegetables and meats or fish that are on sale, as these items can put a dent in your grocery bill. Again, I try to stock up each week when foods I enjoy are on sale to allow for more variety in my meal plans.
7) Once I add the ingredients for my meal plan to my excel spreadsheet, I give the sales flyer one last look to make sure I have not missed anything. Then I gather any coupons together and I am ready to shop!

A few additional pointers, if anyone is still reading this ridiculously long post!
It is helpful to set a weekly grocery budget before starting. My goal is to spend $50 or less each week, or $25 per person. Obviously this may not suit your financial state, so you just need to figure out what works for you--whether it is higher or lower, just remember you can make it work. I am filling my cart with primarily healthy foods, including some organic foods. You can definitely eat healthy on a budget, it just takes a little planning.


When meal planning it is also important to make sure that you have a handy helper who sleeps by your feet, while you are hard at work ;)

If you are really lucky, maybe you can find a helper that will do all the typing for you!

Although this may sound time consuming, I really only spend an hour or less prepping for my shopping trip. Going in to the grocery store prepared saves me a lot of time at the store. Since I have been using this method to shop, I also find that I no longer wander the grocery aisles looking for other items to add to my cart, saving me both time and money. I can usually be in and out of the store in 45 minutes or less. Also, having my meals planned out ahead of time saves me time during the week. There is no guessing on what I will make for dinner and no last minute trips to the store to grab missing ingredients. I always try to stay flexible, since weeknight plans for us can change. I like that I have all the ingredients for all my recipes for the week on hand, so I can easily substitute one night's plan for another night.

How many of you plan your meals each week? Do you typically go in to the grocery store with a plan? Good luck with the meal planning and I'd be happy to answer any questions!

          GRADE PEMETAAN GUA   

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008

Peta gua yang dibuat memiliki tingkatan sesuai dengan derajat ketelitian saat survey dilaksanakan. Oleh BCRA, tingkatan survey dibagi menjadi 6 grade ditambah 1 grade khusus. Derajat ketelitian berdasarkan keakuratan pengukuran, detail, teknik yang digunakan, peralatan yang digunakan. Pembagian Grade Survey Center Line standard BCRA (sumber Surveying Cave, Bryan Ellis, 1970) adalah sebagai berikut:
PEMBAGIAN TINGKATAN SURVEY BERDASARKAN SURVEY CENTER LINE
OLEH BCRA(British Cave Researche Association)
Catatan: Organisasi caving, dan lainnya, yang mereproduksi Tabel 1, 2, dan 3 dalam publikasi mereka, ijin dari BCRA untuk mereproduksi ketiga tabel tersebut tidak diperlukan
Grade 1
Hanya membuat skets dengan akurasi rendah, tanpa membuat pengukuran.
Grade 2
Digunakan jika diperlukan, untuk menggambarkan perantaraan dalam akurasi antara Grade 1 dan Grade 3.
Grade 3
Survey magnetik kasar. Sudut horisontal dan sudut vertikal diukur dengan dengan peralatan, derajat kesalahan ? 2,5?. Alat ukur jarak dengan kesalahan ? 50 cm, kesalahan posisi stasion kurang dari 50 cm.
Grade 4
Dapat digunakan jika diperlukan, untuk menggambarkan survey tidak sampai ke Grade 5, tetapi lebih akurat daripada Grade
Grade 5
Survey dengan peralatan magnetik. Akurasi sudut horisontal dan vertikal ? 1?. Akurasi pengukuran jarak ? 10 cm. Kesalahan posisi stasiun kurang dari 10 cm.
Grade 6
Survey dilakukan dengan lebih akurat dari grade 5. Grade X Survey berdasarkan diutamakan menggunakan theodolite sebagai pengganti compas.
Catatan:
  1. Tabel di atas merupakan ikhtisar dan ditujukan sebagai peringatan, bahwa grade survey yang ditunjukkan di atas harus dibaca bersama-sama dengan penambahan keterangan dalam dalam buku “Surveying Cave”. Untuk lebih jelasnya lihat keterangan berikut di bawah.
  2. Pada semua kasus harus mengikuti tujuan dari definisi dan tidak hanya yang terbaca saja.
  3. Batas akurasi, digunakan dalam pendefinisian, artinya adalah pendekatan hasil terhadap harga sebenarnya, tidak boleh dikacaukan dengan pengertian presisi yang mana pendekatan jumlah dari hasil ulangan masing-masing, dengan mengesampingkan keakuratannya.
  4. Untuk mencapai grade 3 perlu menggunakan clinometer pada lorong yang mempunyai kemiringan.
  5. Peralatan perlu dikalibrasikan lebih dahulu untuk mencapai Grade 5.
  6. Untuk Grade 6 perlu menggunakan compas yang dapat melewati batas akurasi, misalnya ? ??, begitu pula untuk clinometer. Keakuratan jarak dan posisi stsiun kurang dari 2,5 cm dan perlu adanya tripod untuk kedudukan peralatan magnetik (compas dan clinometer).
  7. Untuk Grade X harus dimasukkan dalam catatan yaitu gambar dan tipe instrumen serta teknik yang dipakai. Bersamaan dengan perkiraan keakuratan dibandingkan dengan Grade 3, 5, atau
  8. Grade 2 dan 4 dipakai pada saat survey dilaksanakn menemui kondisi yang menyebabkan survey dengan tingkat yang lebih tinggi terhalangi, dan tidak memungkinkan untuk dilaksanakan survey lagi dimasa mendatang.
  9. Publikasi ulang tabel di atas harus selalu disertai dengan catatan ini.
    • Kompass : Suunto tipe KB 14/360 RT Alternatif : liquid-filled prismatic compass (misal kompas militer Mark III atau tipe 06A), Sylva tipe 7NL.
    • Clinometer : Suunto tipe PM5360PCT
    • Alternatif : Abney level atau Watkin (mirror)
    • Pita ukur dari bahan fiber, panjang maksimum 30 m
  10. + Klas A semua detail dibuat berdasar hapalan luar kepala + Klas B detail lorong dicatat dalam gua berdasar perkiraan + Klas C detail lorong diukur pada stasiun survey + Klas D detail diukur pada stasiun survey dan antar stasiun Kombinasi Grade dan Klasifikasi direkomendasikan : - Grade 1A - Grade 3B/ 3C - Grade 5C/ 5D - Grade 6D - Grade XB, XC,atau XD Derajat pengukuran ini harus diusahakan sejak dua stasiun pertama, karena kesalahan akan bersifat komulatif, makin jauh dari titik awal, semakin besar pula kesalahan yang terjadi. Grade 3 Direkomendasi jika menggunakan alat ukur magnetik kasar. Misal kompas saku (Suunto MC-1 mirrors) dan clinometer swakarya. Jarak dapat diukur dengan pita ukur, menghitung langkah atau panjang tubuh. Grade 5 Type survey ini adalah yang paling banyak dilakukan. Karena merupakan survey yang cukup akurat dengan waktu yang memungkinkan. Survey direkomendasikan menggunakan leap frog method dan lokasi stasiun survey menggunakan batu atau bentukan lain. Alat : Grade 6 Digunakan oleh para spesialis. Grade ini memenuhi keinginan untuk mendapatkan akurasi tinggi dalam survey. Tripod yang digunakan untuk kompas dan clinometer untuk meminimalkan kesalahan posisi stasiun. Grade X Penggunaan grade X pada survey gua biasanya pada perencanaan usaha-usaha pengembangan atau eksploitasi gua.
    grafik grade Gambar grafik probabilitas kesalahan survey (Menurut Bryan Ellis)
    Banyak metode lain yang dilaksanakan, namun dengan menggunakan standard yang umum dipakai ini, akan lebih mudah diketahui kualifikasi dan standart peta yang dihasilkan. Dengan pencantuman grade pada peta yang dibuat, maka pembaca peta yang juga surveyor gua akan mengetahui alat dan metode survey yang digunakan. Sekaligus pertanggung jawaban atas survey yang telah dilaksanakan dan peta yang dihasilkan. Tetapi yang paling banyak digunakan adalah standar 5B dan 4. Yang menjadi pertimbangan atas hilangnya keakuratan antara pencatatan survey sampai ke penyelesaian peta datang dari dua hal, yaitu pada waktu pengolahan data dan penggambaran peta.

Pedoman Menggunakan Kompas

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008
Instrumen yang digunakan untuk pengukuran sudut horisontal adalah kompas magnetik. Yang dipergunakan dalam kegiatan pemetaan gua adalah tersedia dari model Suunto tipe KB 14/360R, KB-77/360 RT yang sering dipergunakan oleh surveyor gua. Perbedaan dari kompas tipe KB 14/360R dan KB-77/360 RT, adalah kompas tipe KB-77/360 RT memiliki cermin prisma yang dapat membantu pembacaan menjadi lebih mudah. Disamping itu cardnya dilengkapi dengan angka pembacaan back azimuth.
Cara Penggunaan
Kompas Suunto tipe KB 14/360R dan KB-77/360 RT
Garis vizir pada lobang pembidik diarahkan pada stasiun target sampai terlihat menjadi segaris. Garis vizir akan terlihat menunjuk pada garis skala tertentu, dimana garis skala tersebut menunjukkan besar azimuth target terhadap arah utara magnetik. Angka yang menunjukkan besarnya azimuth stasiun target terhadap arah utara magnetik, dibaca pada lobang pembidik kompas.
Kompas jenis KB 14/360R, atau KB-77/360 RT memiliki skala penuh sebesar 360?. Setiap satu garis skala menunjukkan perubahan sebesar 1?. Tetapi akurasi pembacaan sudut yang dapat dibaca sampai dengan ??. Sedangkan angka yang tertulis pada card kompas ini merupakan kelipatan 10?.
Sumber-Sumber Kesalahan
Kesalahan yang dapat timbul tidak hanya kesalahan akibat instrumennya sendiri, tetapi juga bila instrumen dihubungkan terhadap sudut pembacaan kompas, instrumen terhadap anomali dan variasi magnetik bumi. Anomali yang disebabkan oleh magnetik batuan, biji besi, dll. Terutama sekali pada area gunung api (Bowler, 1971). Dalam area batu gamping, anomali sebesar 3? adalah hal yang biasa. Pada daerah lava dapat terjadi anomali sebesar 20? . Dengan kesalahan sebesar ini tidak memungkinkan untuk membuat survey magnetik yang akurat (Ellis, 1971).
Arah dari magnet lapangan berubah setiap hari sesuai dengan perubahan dalam ionosphir, ini dikenal dengan diurnal variation, tetapi cukup kecil sekitar 0,2? . Tidak terlalu mengkhawatirkan. Variasi bumi disebabkan oleh perubahan kedalaman dalam bumi dan menghasilkan perubahan sekitar lebih 30? pada periode dua sampai tiga abad. Biasanya dihubungkan sebagai perubahan deklinasi, sekalipun dengan tepat bahwa penyimpangan berbeda secara geografi dan meridian magnetik menyebabkan semua alasan tersebut. Apa yang berhubungan dengan badai magnetik, dapat menyebabkan perubahan yang tidak hilang selama berjam-jam atau berhari-hari dan dalam kasus yang ekstrim dapat sebesar beberapa derajat. Kejadian ini dapat tak teratur dan tidak terkirakan luasnya.
Kesalahan paling sering terjadi dalam satu waktu pembacaan kompas adalah disebabkan oleh jumlah titik stasiun. Pengaruh dari baja atau besi yang melingkupi kompas, kadang terlupakan. Memiringkan sisi kompas saat pembacaan juga menghasilkan kesalahan (Stevens, 1965). Memiringkan kompas dengan sudut terlalu besar, dapat menyebabkan card kompas menjadi lekat dan tidak dapat berputar. Sehingga pembacaan kompas pada stasiun yang lebih tinggi dari yang lain, akan menghasilkan kesalahan. Dengan Suunto dan kompas prismatik Mark III, kemiringan maksimum untuk pembacaan yang presisi adalah 15? . Listrik dapat menyebabkan medan magnet. Garis tenaga listrik dapat mempengaruhi pembacaan kompas.

Survey Gua Secara Magnetik dan Peralatannya

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008
Alat-alat survey yang dipergunakan dalam pemetaan gua yang menggunakan pengaruh medan magnetik. Dibawah ini adalah alat-alat dan perlengkapan yang dibutuhkan untuk pemetaan gua secara magnetik yang biasa dipergunakan dalam survai dan pemetaan gua.
1. Pita ukur
Untuk Grade 5 dan di atasnya, pita ukur yang dipergunakan adalah yang terbuat dari bahan fibber. Ketelitian yang dapat dicapai adalah sampai dalam satuan centimeter. Pergunakan pita ukur yang memiliki panjang maksimal 30 meter. Karena, pengukuran lorong yang memiliki panjang lebih dari 50 meter, akan terjadi lengkungan pada pita ukur karena berat pita sendiri. Sehingga terjadi kesalahan pengukuran bila tetap dipergunakan.
pita ukur
Gambar Pita Ukur
2. Kompas
Mengukur besarnya azimuth (besar sudut) arah lorong terhadap arah Utara 0º.

  3. Clinometer
Mengukur sudut kemiringan terhadap bidang datar.

Gambar Clino
Gambar Kompas dan Clino tandem
Alat pengukur sudut vertikal lain yang bisa dipergunakan misalnya adalah Abney level
Gambar Abney Level
4. Topofil
Alat ini pada prinsipnya mempunyai fungsi yang sama dengan pita ukur. Alat ini ditambahkan dengan kompas di dalamnya. Namun saat ini perkembangan peralatan ini sudah maju dengan berbagai desain yang menguntungkan dalam pemakaian. Topofil bekerja atas dasar roda yang berputar menggerakkan revolution counter dalam satuan centimeter. Berputarnya roda tersebut karena benang yang dililitkan pada roda tersebut dan ditarik pada antar stasiun. Beberapa merek topofil : Topofil TSA, Topofil Dressler, Topofil Vulcain.
Alat ukur lain dengan menggunakan telemetri (ultrasonic rangefinder). Namun alat ini jarang sekali dipakai. Kerja terbaik alat ini pada jarak yang relatif pendek (< 10m) karena sulit untuk digunakan membidik stasiun survey. Dan akurasi pengukuran berkurang dengan adanya penambahan jarak.
5. Lembar kerja (Work sheet)
Dipergunakan untuk mencatat data yang diambil selama survey. Diusahakan dibuat dari bahan yang tahan air. Untuk survey digunakan dua bentuk worksheet, yaitu worksheet tabel, yang diisi angka-angka hasil pembacaan alat ukur. Dan worksheet yang lain digunakan untuk membuat skets perjalanan dan situasi.
Gambar Worksheet Tabel
Gambar Worksheet Tabel Untuk Survai Leap Frog Methode
Gambar Worksheet Untuk Skets
6. Pensil
Penggunaan pensil sebagai alat tulis untuk mencatat rekaman data sangat efektif. Kondisi dalam gua yang paling buruk, sangat sedikit pengaruhnya terhadap pensil, dibandingkan dengan alat tulis lainnya. Untuk itu work sheet juga dipakai bahan yang dapat ditulis dengan pensil. 7. Penghapus
Untuk menghapus kesalahan penulisan yang terjadi pada saat pencatatan di Work Sheet atau pencatatan detail.
8. Lampu senter
Pembacaan kompas dan clinometer membutuhkan penerangan. Untuk itu lampu senter yang dipakai sebagai alat penerangan, berdiri sendiri, tidak diperhitungkan sebagai alat penerangan penelusuran. Usahakan memakai senter yang tidak terbuat dari bahan logam. Dan ketika menggunakan senter untuk menerangi kompas, jangan terlalu dekat sehingga dapat mempengaruhi medan magnetik kompas.

Metode dan Arah Rekaman Data

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008
Metode survey berdasarkan arah pengambilan data.Ada dua metode survey, yaitu :
a. Forward method
Dimana pembaca alat (shooter) dan pencatat pada stasion pertama seorang lagi sabagai target pada stasiun kedua. Setelah pembacaan selesai pembaca dan pencatat berpindah ke stasiun
Gambar Sket Survai Forward Methode
Perpindahan stasiun antara target dan pembaca harus menempati tempat yang sama.
B.Leapfrog Methode.
Disebut Leap frog methode karena metode arah pengambilan datanya seperti lompat katak. Untuk metode ini menggunakan lembar kerja (work sheet) lapangan yang berbeda dengan forward methode. Lihat kembali di alat survai magnetik.

Gambar Sket Survai Leap Frog Methode
Arah survai berdasar arah pengumpulan data:
1. Top to Bottom
Pengumpulan data dimulai dari entrance menuju ujung lorong/dasar dari gua atau sampai stasiun terakhir.
2. Bottom to Top
Pengumpulan data dari ujung lorong/ dasar gua menuju entrance. Jadi merupakan kebalikan dari sistem di atas.
PENENTUAN STASIUN
Dasar pertimbangan yang dapat digunakan untuk menentukan suatu stasiun survey:
  1. Perubahan arah
  2. Perubahan ekstrim bentuk lorong (3 dimensi): belokan, turunan, atap turun, perubahan lebar dinding
  3. Batas pengukuran (30 m)
  4. Perubahan elevasi ekstrim (pitch, climb)
  5. Temuan-temuan penting : biota, ornamen khusus, litologi,dan sebagainya.
  6. Pengukuran dan pembacaan pada stasiun belokan
(Gambar dari Buku Surveying Cave, BryanEllis)
    • Skets perjalanan. Yaitu skets dan penggambaran arah lorong disesuaikan dengan arah kompas, dengan metode diagram polar.
    • Rekaman situasi gua yang tidak dapat atau sulit dimasukkan dalam work sheet tabel.
    • Ditambah dengan keterangan dan jarak terhadap stasiun terdekat.
    • Temuan-temuan yang penting : biota, ornamen, litologi, dan lain-lain

  1. TIM SURVEY Idealnya dalam satu tim survey/ pemetaan gua terdiri dari 4 orang, dengan pembagian tugas sebagai berikut: 1. Orang pertama :Sebagai pembaca alat-alat ukur, membawa clinometer, kompas, dan meteran. 2. Orang kedua : Sebagai pencatat data pengukuran, diskriptor, cross section (irisan lorong), dan skets perjalanan. 3. Orang ketiga : Sebagai target pengukuran, membawa ujung meteran. tinggi badan orang pertama dan ketiga ini harus sama, tujuannya mengurangi kesalahan dalam pengukuran sudut elevasi kemiringan lantai). 4. Orang ke empat : sebagai leader, penentu titik stasiun maupun sebagai pemasang lintasan pada penelusuran gua vertikal Jika harus dilakukan oleh dua orang (leap frog method): 1. Orang pertama : Pembaca alat ukur (kompas, clinometer, pita ukur), penentu stasiun. 2. Orang ke dua : Pencatat pengukuran, diskriptor, skets, target, penentu stasiun. Untuk menjadi diskriptor, pekerjaan ini cukup sulit, karena pertanggungjawaban detail dan rekaman data terletak pada pekerjaan anggota tim ini. Kesalahan dalam pembacaan kompas atau clinometer, terkadang bisa dikoreksi langsung oleh diskriptor yang berpengalaman. Efisiensi waktu juga tergantung kepada diskriptor. Diusahakan orang yang diserahi tugas sebagai diskriptor, mampu merekam dan menuangkan situasi gua yang disurvey dalam work sheet dengan jelas dan lengkap, sehingga tidak menyulitkan pada waktu pengolahan data dan penggambaran peta. Dalam survey gua, yang berfungsi sebagai stasiun adalah orang yang bertugas membaca alat ukur dan orang sebagai target. Untuk itu kedua orang ini harus memilik tinggi badan yang sama atau mendekati. Karena perbedaan tinggi tubuh akan berpengaruh pada pembacaan clinometer. Rekaman Data

Alat Survai Elektronik dan Komputer

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008
Saat ini, survai dan pemetaan gua jaman sekarang sudah semakin mudah untuk dikerjakan. Masalah-masalah yang terjadi semakin mudah pula untuk diselesaikan. Keberadaan alat survai elektronik untuk mengukur jarak, kompas dan clinometer digital membuat perjalanan survai makin cepat dan akurat. Perangkat lunak untuk survai gua pun sudah tersedia, baik yang diperoleh secara gratis maupun tidak, ke dalam komputer tablet atau personal digital assistance (PDA), sehingga surveyor gua tidak lagi perlu membawa sejumlah besar lembar kerja lapangan untuk mencatat angka dan sket perjalanan. Perkembangan saat ini adalah menghubungkan alat survai elektronik dengan PDA untuk mempermudah proses penyimpanan data yang tidak membutuhkan penulisan, yang dapat mengurangi kemungkinan kesalahan.
Pemilihan dan efektifitas penggunaan alat survai serta software untuk pemetaan sepenuhnya tergantung kepada manusia yang menggunakannya. Kekurangan dan kelemahan dari masing-masing perangkat pembantu itu hanya dapat diatasi oleh akal manusia. Untuk itu, bagaimanapun juga pengajaran dasar-dasar pemetaan gua secara analog, harus tetap diajarkan dan dilakukan sampai tingkat tertentu agar manusia bisa mengatasi kekurangan dan kelemahan itu. Dan agar manusia bisa tetap melakukan survai gua dan pemetaan jika tidak ada alat-alat tersebut. Bahkan jika tidak ada perlengkapan pemetaan gua analog yang selama ini sudah dipergunakan.
PENDAHULUAN
Banyak pertanyaan yang muncul mengenai teknik dan metode pemetaan gua yang lebih cepat atau akurat daripada cara konvensional. Bukan hanya di dalam negeri, tapi juga di newsgroup atau mailing list surveyor gua internasional. Sebagian pertanyaan tersebut menyangkut aplikasi penemuan baru atau teknologi baru. Informasi tentang aplikasi teknologi informatika dan instrumentasi tersebut tidak tersebar ke tanah air. Hal yang sangat disayangkan, di saat fasilitas untuk mengakses informasi global sudah demikian mudah.
Tulisan ini bertujuan untuk mengenalkan dan mendeskripsikan aplikasi kemajuan teknologi instrumen elektronika dan informatika untuk kegiatan pemetaan gua. Mulai dari tahapan survai (pengambilan data) hingga penggambaran peta. Aplikasi kemajuan teknologi tersebut meliputi perangkat lunak (software) dan perangkat keras (hardware). Juga terdapat uraian singkat mengenai kegunaan masing-masing perangkat dan mungkin sedikit perbandingan dengan perangkat lain atau perangkat konvensional.
Penciptaan perangkat tersebut biasanya didasarkan atas kebutuhan efisiensi waktu pengambilan data lapangan, ketelitian data yang diambil, dan kemudahan integrasi terhadap perangkat lainnya. Namun ada pula perangkat yang diciptakan untuk kegunaan lain namun dapat secara langsung diaplikasikan ke pekerjaan pemetaan gua.
Instrumen untuk survai lapangan yang terdiri dari pengukuran sudut horisontal menggunakan kompas, pengukuran sudut vertikal menggunakan clinometer, dan pengukuran jarak menggunakan pita ukur, sekarang ini sepenuhnya dapat tergantikan oleh instrumen elektronik. Penggunaan instrumen ini lebih efisien dari sisi waktu, dan lebih akurat dari sisi data.
Perangkat elektronik penggunaannya menggantikan perangkat mekanik berbasis penglihatan (kompas dan clinometer). Kompas memiliki sumber kesalahan akibat berbasis pada medan magnetik bumi dapat dipengaruhi oleh medan magnetik lokal dan sumber-sumber magnetik lain misalnya penggunaan senter logam yang terlalu dekat. Kompas dan clinometer, keakuratan penggunaannya sangat dipengaruhi oleh tangan dan mata surveyor. Sementara perangkat lunak di bidang informatika, mampu menggantikan proses-proses pengolahan data hingga penggambaran peta konvensional yang makan waktu banyak dan penuh sumber kesalahan. Bahkan perangkat lunak yang tersedia untuk pengolahan data dan penggambaran peta, mampu bekerja dengan perangkat lunak lain untuk menghasilkan peta atau data yang jaman dahulu sulit untuk dilakukan. Dan semuanya itu hanya membutuhkan sedikit pekerjaan serta waktu tambahan saja.
Dalam tulisan ini terpaksa harus banyak sekali memuat nama produk. Bukan dalam niatan penulis untuk mempromosikan produk tersebut, namun hanya untuk memaparkan bahwa ada sebuah produk untuk jenis fungsi tertentu yang dapat dipergunakan untuk pekerjaan pemeaan gua.
PERANGKAT PENGAMBILAN DATA
Alat ukur sudut horisontal (kompas) dan vertical (clinometer)
Selama ini alat ukur sudut horisontal yang sering dipergunakan oleh surveyor gua untuk grade 5 adalah kompas magnetik yang memiliki ketelitian hingga 1�. Kompas-kompas ini bersandar pada medan magnetik bumi. Pembacaan besarnya sudut antar stasiun didasarkan pada penglihatan. Kompas konvensional menggunakan sebuah garis vizir di dalamnya sebagai pengarah untuk “ditembakkan” ke target. Hal ini bisa menjadi sumber kesalahan, jika cara memegang, mengarahkan, dan menempatkan mata tidak berada pada satu garis yang lurus.
Surveyor gua melengkapi kompas dengan laser sebagai garis bidik ke arah target. Dengan cara ini kompas benar-benar mengarah ke target sehingga mengurangi/ menghilangkan kesalahan pembacaan. Namun, laser pointer yang dipasang pada kompas memiliki medan magnetik yang dapat mempengaruhi kompas. Untuk itu dibutuhkan sebuah kalibrasi terhadap laser pointer ini.
Sekarang telah banyak tersedia kompas digital untuk pendukung kegiatan alam bebas. Salah satunya adalah kompas digital Silva Nomad (http://www.silva.se). Kompas ini dapat dipakai dalam kegelapan karena memiliki background lighting. Disamping itu, kompas ini dapat menyimpan arah tujuan dan arah kebalikannya. Hal ini mungkin dapat berguna jika surveyor sedang menyurvai gua dengan mulut gua lebih dari satu.

Gambar Laser kompas(sumber: http://www.cavediggers.com/compasslaserMartin.jpg.
Namun ternyata kalangan surveyor gua di negara Amerika Serikat dan Inggris cenderung untuk membuat sendiri kompas digital dengan akurasi dan resolusi yang lebih baik.
Sebuah artikel tulisan Martin Melzer dalam jurnal The Cave Radio & Electronics Group (CREG)-BCRA 54, How To Build an Electronic Cave Surveying Instrument , memaparkan cara membuat alat survey elektronik. Yang dimaksud dengan alat survey elektronik dalam artikel jurnal tersebut adalah kompas dan clinometer elektronik. Pembuatan kompas elektronik, dapat dilakukan dengan dua cara. Yaitu dengan membeli modul kompas ke vendor atau membuat modul compas sendiri.
Modul kompas ini sudah tersedia berbagai produk dengan keakuratan dan resolusi yang bervariasai. Salah satu modul kompas yang dianggap cukup baik oleh kalangan surveyor gua di Amerika berharga sekitar 500$! Pemasangannya harus tetap memperhatikan beberapa hal, diantaranya adalah wadah yang non magnetik, cara menampilkan/ menyimpan data, laser ranger, dan kalibrasi laser ranger. Laser ranger adalah perangkat tambahan yang sangat penting untuk secara langsung dapat diketahui jarak dari alat tersebut ke target. Alat ini memiliki medan magnetik yang mempengaruhi kompas.
Dibawah ini contoh pemasangan modul kompas/ clinometer digital (oleh Mark Passerby & Nigel Dyson-Hudson) produksi True North Technologies’ Revolution di sebuah kotak pengaman yang tahan air.
Gambar modul kompas
(Sumber http://www.caves.com/truenorth/)
Jika ingin membuat kompas elektronik sendiri, dalam artikel tersebut disebutkan bahwa dapat menghemat biaya yang cukup berarti. Yang dibutuhkan adalah sebuah susunan sensor magnetik dimana banyak produsen yang menyediakan sensor magnetik ini. Kemudian yang perlu dilakukan adalah mengidentifikasi semua kemungkinan sumber kesalahan yang bersifat mekanis maupun elektrik, menyusun sebuah program untuk mengkalibrasi kesalahan, dan suatu model simulasi yang dapat menghasilkan serangkaian data dengan kesalahan perubahan geometrik dan elektrik yang dapat dipergunakan untuk memverifikasi kalibrasi.
Pembahasan tentang clinometer elektronik buatan sendiri tidak terlalu banyak karena dianggap bahwa medan gravitasi jauh lebih stabil daripada medan magnetik sehingga tidak membutuhkan perlakuan khusus terhadap modul clinometer.
Tersedia pula clinometer buatan pabrik yang akurasi dan resulusinya cukup tinggi, melebihi clinometer analog yang selama ini dipergunakan. Misalnya adalah SmartTool.

Sebuah tim dari Belgia, memasang sebuah laser pointer pada clinometer elektronik untuk menjamin agar clinometer benar-benar mengarah pada target.

(Sumber: http://users.skynet.be/avalon/avalonuk/technical/laserclino.htm )
Keuntungan pemakaian alat survai elektronik ini selain keakuratan dan efisiensinya adalah, bahwa jika selama ini menggunakan alat survai mekanik, sering kali lobang bidik kompas atau clinometer tertutup kotoran sehingga menghambat pembacaan sudut.
Alat ukur jarak
Alat ukur jarak elektronik, biasanya disebut dengan range finder. Yang paling banyak dibahas di komunitas surveyor gua adalah yang berjenis laser range finder. Dan salah satu produk yang paling sering dibahas adalah Leica Disto. Vendor produk ini menawarkan beberapa tipe dengan berbagai akurasi dan kemampuan. Keakuratannya dari 3 mm hingga 1.5 mm, dan dapat mengukur jarak kisaran dari 0.2 meter hingga lebih dari 200 meter.

Gambar Range Finder Leica Disto Lite 5
(Sumber: http://www.swoptics.co.uk/list.asp?CAT=102 )
Tipe Disto lainnya dilengkapi dengan teknologi Bluetooth sehingga data yang diperoleh dari range finder ini dapat langsung ditransfer ke PDA (pocket PC) atau laptop tanpa menggunakan kabel. Dilengkapi pula dengan software PlusDraw yang secara langsung membuat skets berdasar data yang diperoleh dan dapat ditransfer ke PC (tipe file bmp) sementara datanya dapat direkam sebagai file Excel oleh software PlusXL.
Untuk mengefisienkan perjalanan survai, surveyor gua melekatkan secara langsung saling memunggunig, antara clinometer elektronik pada range finder ini. Dengan sekali kerja mengarahkan range finder ke target, sekaligus pula diperoleh sudut kemiringan ke target tersebut. Di bawah ini adalah contoh range finder Disto dan clinometer SmartTool yang dilekatkan saling memunggungi.

Gambar range finder dan clinometer
(Sumber: http://www.cavediggers.com/digiclo.JPG )
Ada produk lain yang memiliki tiga fungsi sekaligus, sebagai alat ukur sudut horisontal, vertikal, dan sebagai alat pengukur jarak (range finder) yaitu produksi Kombi. Alat ini juga memiliki kemampuan menyimpan 1000 data pengukuran di memory internalnya.

Gambar Kombi-4
Perangkat perekam data
Pada pemetaan gua konvensional, data direkam di dalam lembar kerja lapangan. Lembaran tersebut harus dari bahan yang tahan air, lumpur, tidak mudah sobek, dan dapat ditulisi menggunakan pensil. Lembar kerja lapangan terdiri dari dua jenis, untuk merekam data hasil pembacaan instrumen dan untuk merekam skets dan situasi lorong gua. Medan yang berlumpur, berair, memanjat, menggantung di tali, ditambah kemungkinan kesalahan mencatat sehingga harus menghapus menggunakan karet penghapus, dan semua pekerjaan deskriptor dan pencatat data, sungguh membutuhkan manajemen pencatatan data dan manajemen alat-alat tulis.
Sekarang, surveyor gua cukup membawa sebuah PC Tablet yang diinstall software yang bertugas untuk merekam data survai.
TDS Recon
(Sumber : http://www.caves.com/recon/ dan dan http://www.tdsway.com/handhelds)
Unit ini dipegunakan untuk mengumpulkan dan merekam data survai. Menggunakan aplikasi Spreadsheet yang disebut SpreadC dan sebuah program untuk membuat skets survai. Kelebihan dari unit ini adalah bahwa semua file yang diinstall di Recon, diinstall di Flash Memory atau di card Compact Flash external. Sehingga semua data masih tetap terjaga sekalipun sudah kehabisan daya batery sama sekali. Units ini sendiri dapat beroperasi tanpa henti dan dengan catu daya yang tanpa diisi ulang selama 15 jam.

(Sumber : http://www.caves.com/recon/)
Units ini dijual secara bebas, namun harganya cukup tinggi untuk ukuran kantong orang Indonesia. Harganya $1,499 U.S. and $1,529 U.S untuk penjualan ke pihak di luar Amerika.
Auriga Palm OS
Auriga adalah perangkat lunak bebas (freeware) yang berjalan di PDA Palm OS yang dipergunakan untuk konversi input data conversion kedalam koordinat Cartesian. Software ini berdasar pada apa yang telah dilakukan Martin Melzer dalam membuat sebuah perangkat sensor (range finder dengan kompas dan clinometer elektronik) dirangkai dengan software Palm OS agar secara otomatis dapat menyimpan data survai gua.

Gambar Kotak Sensor (Kiri) dan PDA Palm OS
(Sumber http://www.sat.dundee.ac.uk/%7Earb/creg/journals/j54.html)
Dibandingkan dengan lembar kerja lapangan Auriga menawarkan data numerik yang lebih mudah dibaca, mengurangi kesalahan ketika memindahkan data dari lembar lapangan ke lembar proses data atau komputer, data dapat diback up ke laptop menggunakan infra merah, surveyor dapat secara langsung melihat tampilan garis survey gua sementara sehingga dapat mendeteksi adanya kesalahan, dapat mengetahui kecepatan proses eksplorasi, statistik gua, arah lorong, posisi dan lain-lain secara langsung (real time) tanpa harus keluar dari gua terlebih dahulu.
Dibadingkan software yang berjalan pada PC/Mac, Palm OS jelas lebih murah dan lebih nyaman dipergunakan di lingkungan bawah tanah. Sekalipun begitu, Auriga ini tidak ditujukan untuk menggantikan software yang demikain banyak berjalan di PC/ Mac yang menggunakan sistem operasi Windows atau Macintosh, tetapi dapat menjadi sebuah perangkat pelengkap. Yaitu sebagai perangkat perekam data, belakangan data dapat ditransfer ke PC/ Mac untuk diproses lebih lanjut.

Alat Survai Non Magnetik
Alat survai untuk memetakan gua yang tidak berbasis magnetik juga mengalami kemajuan yang sangat besar. Theodolit konvensional yang berbasis optik, sekarang mengandalkan sinar infra merah untuk “menembak” target. Dengan menggunakan infra merah ini kesalahan akibat refraksi sinar oleh beda tekanan udara dapat dikurangai. Ketelitian dan akurasinya juga makin tinggi.
Ditambah lagi kemampuan menyimpan data survai sehingga tidak perlu lagi dilakukan kegiatan pencatatan data yang menambah kemungkinan kesalahan data akibat pencatatan. Data yang tersimpan di dalam internal memory, dapat langsung di-download pada komputer. Biasanya theodolite ini disertai dengan software bawaan. Dengan menggunakan softaware ini, data hasil survai dapat langsung diproses untuk mendapatkan hasil-hasil yang diinginkan. Pekerjaan-pekerjaan dalam pengolahan data yang biasanya memakan waktu cukup banyak, dapat dilakukan dalam waktu singkat. Termasuk koreksi dan kalibrasi.
Dengan resolusi dan akurasi yang tinggi, maka penggunaan theodolite ini dipergunakan dalam proyek-proyek pengembangan dan pemanfaatan gua yang membutuhkan ketelitian pemetaan sangat tinggi. Misalnya dalam penentuan titik bor, seperti di Gua Bribin.

Sensor Image 3D
Selama ini dalam dunia pemetaan gua dikenal survai magnetik, yang menggunakan kompas, dan non magnetik (Grade X) yang menggunakan theodolite, baik yang buatan sendiri maupun buatan pabrik. Alat survey berikut ini tidak secara khusus dibuat untuk pekerjaan survai gua. Namun kemampuan dan fungsinya dapat dipergunakan untuk merekam situasi gua secara langsung. Prinsipnya adalah alat ini mempergunakan LASER untuk melakukan scanning (pemindaian) terhadap bagian yang dituju. Kemudian merekam hasil scanning direkam dalam komputer dan diolah hingga mendapatkan gambar tiga dimensi yang sama dengan profil target.
Alat ini terintegrasi dengan software yang dibuat secara khusus untuk dipergunakan bersama alat ini serta kamera untuk kalibrasi warna yang beresolusi tinggi. Kombinasi dari komponen-komponen survai metode ini (scanner, software, kamera) memberikan hasil: mesh tekstur yang beresolusi tinggi secara otomatis, rekonkstruksi tiga dimensional menyerupai foto, identifikasi detail yang persis sama, pengukuran posisi dan jarak secara online, setting secara online dari berbagai sudut pandang.
Ketelitian dan akurasi alat in cukup tinggi. Keakuratannya dalam pembidikan tunggal adalah 10 mm, dan bila dengan rata-rata adalah 5 mm. ketelitian pengukuran adalah 5 mm.

Survey Gua Pada Kondisi Khusus

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008
Lorong gua, pada kondisi tertentu tidak dapat dilakukan sebuah kegiatan survai normal. Membutuhkan tambahan teknik, peralatan, metode, dan SDM yang memiliki keterampilan khusus. Idealnya, dengan waktu yang cukup dan instrumen yang baik, sebuah tim survey harus harus memakai sandar 5 atau 6 BCRA di sebagian besar lorong, tetapi hal ini mungkin sulit dilakukan pada kondisi tertentu. Pada kondisi ekstrim banyak persyaratan standar survey harus diabaikan jika hasil akhir harus diproduksi seluruhnya. Surveyor hanya dapat bekerja baik pada kondisi memungkinkan, tetapi adanya sedikit gagasan awal dan pengalaman dapat memberikan hasil yang lebih berharga.
Sebelum memulai usaha survey dari beberapa sistem gua, tim harus dalam kondisi baik untuk menjalankan tugasnya, baik fisik maupun psikis. Ada satu kepincangan maka rusaklah seluruh perjalanan dan caver yang baik adalah pembantu yang baik pada kondisi seperti ini daripada surveyor yang berpengalaman tetapi tidak fit. Secara nyata, perpaduan antara surveyor yang berpengalaman dan caver yang fit sangat ideal. Hal ini akan menghemat banyak waktu jika sekurangnya satu anggota kelompok pernah melalui sebagian besar area survey sebelumnya, dan jika pitch-pitch telah dipasang rigging oleh tim advance. Pada sebagian besar kejadian disarankan untuk mensurvey dalam sistem dan kemudian baru mencari pemecahannya. Dan jika survey kemudian tidak dapat diselesaikan karena satu alasan, seseorang tidak boleh meninggalkan survey line tanpa menghubungkan dengan surface.
Logistik memainkan tuagas yang sangat penting dalam metode survey pada beberapa sistem yang panjang. Jika tim yang berbeda mengunjungi gua tersebut lagi, sebanyak mungkin informasi harus didapatkan tim. Satu trip panjang akan hasilnya lebih akurat dari pada dua survey yang pendek, dan jika waktu sudah mendesak sekali, harus dikerjakan dengan notebook dan kompas untuk membuat skets (survey mendekati grade 2 atau 3) lorong yang tidak disurvey dengan traverse line. Makin banyak gua yang dapat disurvey jika tim berjalan dengan penerangan cukup. Bahkan box amunisi dapat menjadi gangguan pada lorong yang kecil dan lebih baik ditinggalkan di satu bagian yang mudah diingat dan dilihat. Instrumen yang ringkas dan kecil seperti misalnya yang diproduksi oleh Suunto amat baik sekali bila dibawa di dalam wet suit, dan pita Fibron dipakai yang kuat, dapat dipindahkan pada karabiner sepanjang ukuran panjang melalui sling kecil mengelilingi tali pengikat. Alas survey yang besar dapat menjadi berat tetapi notebook yang kecil atau alas dari lembar plastik dapat dibawa dengan mudah dan aman di dalam helm.
Sekalipun dengan alat yang tidak layak, mungkin survey dapat dimulai dengan grade 5 dalam gua yang sulit, tetapi waktu pembacaan, besar kemungkinan makin memburuk karena lumpur dan air dan keakuratannya turun ke grade yang lebih rendah. Tindakan preventip, adalah dengan menggunakan instrumen yang tahan terhadap lumpur dan air.
Penyempitan lorong yang amat sangat adalah suatu kondisi yang buruk sekali untuk melakukan survey karena berbagai alasan. Terkadang tim harus mampu melewati bagian paling sempit sambil membaca instrumen pada saat kram. Tape man harus berjalan sepanjang bagian tersebut dengan posisi membalik, tetapi disebabkan penampang melintang yang kecil menyebabkan kesalahan posisi stasiun menjadi kecil. Pita ukur kemungkinan dapat menjadi halangan karena sobek dan sulit untuk diurai. Mencatat detail menjadi pelan dan dapat membuat frustasi, maka untuk itu disarankan untuk posisi stasiun ditandai dan pembacaan dengan called back sampai lorong membesar; pencatat kemudian mengikuti, mencatat bentuk dan detail. Dengan terbatasnya ruang kepala, instrumen sulit untuk mendapatkan penerangan dan dibaca dan perhatian harus dicurahkan untuk menghindari deviasi magnetik karena dekat dengan lampu elektrik dan bracket helm. Perlu dipastikan bahwa kompas dalam posisi horisontal dan tidak macet; cara terbaik untuk menghindari adalah mengulangi tiap pengukuran dua atau tiga kali -pekerjaan menjemukan, yang dapat menyebabkan kehilangan lengan survey yang sangat berharga. Tepat sekali bila leapfrog pada posisi “tak mungkin” dengan menggunakan lampu sebagai target dan orang ketiga pada stasiun, tetapi sejak itu tidak mungkin untuk berputar pada lorong yang sangat terbatas, biarkan lewat satu orang, seterusnya leapfrog tidak dapat digunakan secara keseluruhan. Saat pembacaan clinometer, tinggi instrumen dan lampu target diatas lantai dapat berbeda, dan ini harus dicatat. Agar terhindar dari manipulasi pengukuran detail lorong, perlu untuk diketahui agar tetap akurat dengan menggunakan dimensi rentangan tangan, panjang lengan, dll. Standar ini dengan cepat dipergunakan untuk mengukur dimensi lorong dan tinggi stasiun pada cross section.
Lumpur yang dalam dan air sewaktu merangkak adalah musuh surveyor paling buruk. Jika terjadi dalam jarak yang panjang, tugas harus dikerjakan dengan pekerjaan minimal, dengan kata lain terdapat resiko yang serius dan ketiadaan efisiensi, bahkan sekalipun memakai wet suit. Dan juga lebih baik sedikit waktu saja yang dihabiskan dalam lorong dengan memperhitungkan kemungkinan banjir. Agar bebas dari kesulitan pembacaan, instrumen harus terlindung dengan baik, waterproof, dan tidak terlalu besar. Instrumen Suunto cocok dan mudah di-seal dengan resin bening disekitar lensa bidik dan jendela lebar. Pada ruang yang rendah, kompas sulit untuk dibaca dan dengan perlakuan penerangan konvensional, dapat diperoleh di dalam air dan dibaca dari atas (open sight). Pembacaan clinometer tidak perlu diambil pada kanal, tetapi perubahan kedalaman air perlu dicatat. Pencatatan harus sangat hati-hati, dan pada kasus yang ekstrim diperlukan alas (pad) dari plastik. Pada notebook atau lembar plastik, pensil 2B menghasilkan tanda yang jelas dan tidak menyobek kertas yang basah. Lumpur mendatangkan masalah lebih besar terhadap rekaman pada air sehingga membuat tidak jelas dan menimbulkan kesalahan jika tidak dihilangkan. Saat pita ukur tertutup lumpur, dapat dibersihkan dengan menarik diantara jari dan ibu jari. Pada kanal, pita ukur harus ditarik rapat dengan muka air karena halangan yang tidak kelihatan atau kusut. Satu hal lagi, teknik leapfrog, biasanya tidak terlaksana saat menyangkut konsumsi waktu bergerak, dan akan menimpa tim survey pada bagian dimana terdapat ruangan sangat rendah.
Danau bawah tanah yang luas, jarang terdapat di United Kingdom namun banyak terdapat di Irlandia. Surveyor pada ekspedisi luar negeri sering menghadapi rintangan yang menawarkan pengalaman khas dan konsumsi waktu untuk mapping. Perahu-perahu kecil sangat bermanfaat jika cukup ruangannya, tetapi perahu ini terkenal sangat sulit untuk tetap diam dan berpindah dari stasiun, kecuali jika dapat ditambat pada dinding atau atap. Untuk itu wet suit umum digunakan karena lebih cepat untuk berenang (tetapi lebih dingin pada iklim tertentu) dan berpegangan dinding atau atap untuk digunakan sebagai stasiun. Semua pendapat tentang survey di lorong berair digunakan disini tetapi oleh sebab kedalaman air dapat menghilangkan semua peralatan, sebaiknya diikatkan erat pada sedikitnya satu orang. Air dapat diukur dengan menggunakan karabiner yang berat dan diikatkan ujung pita ukur. Jika tidak ada tonjolan atap atau dinding yang sesuai, sebaiknya digunakan suatu jenis penolong yang dapat mengapung jika sulit untuk membaca kompas scara akurat sementara air mengalir.
Shaft yang massive menimbulkan problem dalam pengukuran jika kedalamnya lebih dari 30 meter. Anak tangga dasar ladder dapat ditandai dengan sling atau mengikatkan ekor C-link. Panjang ladder sampai ke dasar pitch kemudian diukur, tidak dengan cara menghitung anak tangga karena akan timbul kesalahan. Sebagai cek, simpul dapat diikatkan pada lantai pada lifeline yang tidak dapat mulur, tetapi teknik ini tidak dapat digunakan jika komunikasi antara bawah dan atas tidak bagus. Disebabkan oleh elastisitas asli dari tali caving (nylon > polypropylene > polyester), untuk itu lebih baik diganti dengan tali ringan dari PVC. Jika mungkin, membagi shaft menjadi beberapa rangkaian pitch yang lebih pendek dan surveynya dikerjakan pada setiap pitch tersebut. Waterfall sebisa mungkin dihindari dengan turun mencari jalur alternatif saat kesulitan untuk menentukan dimensi dan komunikasi pembacaan, tetapi disarankan untuk mengukur rute alternatif dan rute asli tersebut untuk chek survey dan informasi bagi kelompok lain yang akan masuk. Radio jarak pendek sangat menolong untuk melaksanakan survey di pitch yang dalam dan berair sedang telepon lapangan telah diciptakan untuk dapat lebih menyelesaikan masalah semacam ini.
Uraian di atas diharapakan dapat menjadi panduan umum untuk survey pada kondisi yang sulit. Pengalaman adalah guru terbaik dan pengalaman surveyor, tidak bisa tidak, adalah perlengkapan teknik untuk mengatasi kesulitan. Sekalipun idealnya adalah survey yang akurat, namun tidak bisa dilaksanakan pada semua kondisi dan sebuah survey tidak akan lebih bagus dari yang lain. Yang terutama adalah adanya maksud untuk berbuat terbaik pada kondisi yang memungkinkan, dan menerangkan kepada pemakai hasil survey mengenai kesulitan yang dihadapi sehingga mereka mengetahui batas keakuratan.

Survey Lorong Bawah Air (Sump)

Posted by Ardy Prasetyo on March 29, 2008
Jarang lorong gua yang sepenuhnya terisi air namun masih cukup untuk dilewati manusia. Dan ini sudah jelas bahwa lorong semacam ini tidak bisa disurvey dengan metode biasa. Tetapi sangat menarik menyurvey lorong seperti ini, untuk kepentingan bilamana lorong air tersebut panjang, dan untuk menggabungkan bagian survey yang lain di seberang sump yang merupakan sistem lain yang lebih panjang.
Jika sump lurus ke depan, pada garis lurus dan relatif pendek, garis survey dapat diambil pada sisi yang jauh dengan teknik dibawah ini. Stasiun survey harus ditempatkan pada dua ujung sump. Pita ukur ditempatkan di sepanjang bagian bawah permukaan dan kemudian jarak antar dua stasiun tersebut diukur. Harus hati-hati agar pita ukur sebisa mungkin dalam keadaan garis lurus (di semua bidang) dan tidak terantuk tonjolan batu, dll. Pita ukur diturunkan kedalam sump kemudian diangkat lagi, berikan jarak stasiun lebih besar dari jarak sebenarnya. Kesalahan yang timbul tidak begitu penting, kecuali jika sump tersebut memiliki hubungan yang amat besar terhadap panjangnya. Estimasi arah dari stasiun satu ke stasiun yang lain diperoleh dengan membaca kompas pada sepanjang pita ukur, pembacaan ini harus diambil pada dua stasiun yang berseberangan untuk memeriksa apakah pita ukur tersebut lurus. Perbedaan ketinggian antar stasiun diperoleh dengan mengukur tiap ketinggian muka air dan diasumsikan bahwa muka air tiap sisi sump adalah sama.
Jika lorong submerged lebih komplek daripada sump yang dijelaskan diatas lebih baik survey dilakukan oleh seorang diver. Tidak mungkin teknik konvensional, dipakai pada pekerjaan yang semestinya dilakukan oleh diver, terutama karena keterbatasan jarak penglihatan dan komunikasi antar diver. Satu teknik telah ditemukan (Lloyd, 1970) dan relatif akurat jika dilaksanakan oleh diver berpengalaman di bidang ini. Sebelum memasuki sump, tali yang akan dipakai ditanda pada jarak tertentu dengan pita PVC, 10 ft untuk sistem Imperial dan 5 m untuk sistem metrik. Diver meletakkan tali tersebut di sepanjang lorong submerged. Surveyor diver harus dilengkapi den
