          An affordable Project Fi-compatible phone is coming later this year   
Google’s experimental wireless service, Project Fi hasn’t been around for long, so naturally it comes with its fair share of limitations. Perhaps the most important one is that Google offers only a handful of Project Fi-compatible devices including the Pixel, Pixel XL, Nexus 6P, Nexus 5X and Nexus 6. But what about folks who can’t […]

          A Quiet, Peaceful Sound   
I spent all day yesterday at one of the Atlanta data centers, doing some Nexus and Check Point work with another engineer. Lots of loud server noise, along with the road noise to and from Birmingham. Not to mention the Atlanta city sounds.  It's was just a busy, noisy day.
As I pulled up into my driveway and got out of my truck, back in Birmingham, I couldn't help but notice the stillness of the night. The only sound I heard, all around me, was the soft, low, steady hum of crickets.  Not to mention the smell of the new growth of plants and trees. It was very peaceful. So much so, as I walked inside, I continued straight back to the back door to the back yard to continue to enjoy that sound and the smells of summer. It was quiet a moment.

          Breath of the Wild: Master Trials DLC is now available   

If finding all those Korok Seeds isn't keeping you busy during The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild's post-game, fear not! The first of two announced DLC packs for Link's newest adventure is available today. The Master Trials brings even more depth to Hyrule. Most notably, a dungeon which is composed of 45 separate rooms has been added. In this dungeon, players must prove their fighting ability by clearing each room of enemies before being allowed to move forward. What makes this interesting is that Link is stripped of his awesome gear, forcing us to fight smart.

If this seems like a lot of work, it's for good reason. When this dungeon is completed successfully, the Master Sword will permanently glow. Originally, the Master Sword would only enter this state within dungeons, around Guardians, and so on. While it glows, the blade of evil's bane is two times stronger than normal. That's a whopping 60 attack power, over the standard 30.

One huge and new dungeon not enough? How about the whole game with extra difficulty? The Master Trials also enables hard mode for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. Enemies now regenerate health mid-battle, and are more perceptive of Link's whereabouts if he's sneaking around. Exclusive to hard mode, enemies on floating platforms now exist throughout Hyrule. Taking these airborne baddies out yields a worthwhile treasure, similar to clearing a Bokoblin camp.

The Master Trials DLC also adds a feature called the Hero's Path. Enabling it draws out Link's path on the map of Hyrule, depicting where he has and hasn't traveled on foot. On top of this handy update, players will also be able to find a hidden item called the Travel Medallion which can set a custom fast-travel point based on Link's current location.

Finally, some new items have been added to Hyrule. While most of the new items are cosmetic fun (like Majora's Mask), the Korok's Mask is probably the most useful. With the Korok Mask equipped, players will more easily locate Korok Seeds. With 900 Korok Seeds in the wild, this is a blessing for all the lovely completionists out there.

At $19.99, you can purchase the Expansion Pass for The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild. This includes The Master Trials - available now - and The Champion's Ballad, which is out in December.


          Get N. Sane with Crash Bandicoot today   

Crash Bandicoot, the original PlayStation mascot is back and more high-def than ever. Coming to the PlayStation 4, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is a fully remastered collection of great Crash Bandicoot games. Specifically, this collection features Crash Bandicoot, Crash Bandicoot 2: Cortex Strikes Back, and Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped.

Though originally created and developed by Naughty Dog, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy is brought to us by Vicarious Visions. It's important to note that Vicarious Visions views this collection a remaster and not a remake, since they used Naughty Dog's original level geometry to rebuild the gameplay from the ground up.

Each game was given a graphical overhaul, as well as some quality-of-gaming improvements. Among these is the ability to play through each game as Coco Bandicoot (Crash's sister), unified checkpoints, manual and automatic save systems, and time trials for each game. Originally, time trials were only featured in Crash Bandicoot 3: Warped. Finally, Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy gives all three titles the 4K video and audio treatment, making it a perfect addition for PlayStation 4 Pro owners. Now you can hear all those old school sound effects on your new school hardware!

Be sure to add this legendary series of games to your modern collection by picking up Crash Bandicoot N. Sane Trilogy from the PlayStation Store, or your local game shop.


          The Neck King, Kurt Angle, has arrived for the WWE 2K18 pre-order bonus   

 

Bob: Hey, brother! Guess who's coming to WWE 2K18 as a pre-order bonus character? You know his name, The Olympic Gold Medalist! The Wrestling Machine!! The American Hero himself! Kurt Angle baby!

Jim: That's right Bob, Angle revealed this during a press conference where he said we'd get not one, but TWO different versions of his popular wrestling persona. First, the "American Hero," the persona that made him a super star, the other the "Wrestling Machine," which he did when people sort of card about ECW for a bit.

Bob: Jim I could not agree more ECW is a literal non-entity at this point but Angle went on in the press conference to praise the young superstar Seth Rollins, cover star of 2K18, and expressed interest in changing his finishing move into the Stone Cold Stunner, which doesn't make a ton of sense but we'll forgive our man Kurt because his neck is so massive.

Jim: Yes and look at the size of that neck Bob its thicker than a California Red Wood.

Bob: Thicker than a bowl of cold oatmeal.

Jim: Thicker than someone who thinks they can take on King Kurt in his prime!

Bob: This is going to be an epic game, with the last one having over 175 playable characters when you include the DLC, we cannot wait to see what we get out of this installment.

Jim: Absolutely and the game comes out October 17th for PS4 and Xbox One so save the date and get ready, because The Angle Slam is coming for you and you know it's doneso when he gets you there.

Bob: Hoo-ah.

Jim: Yes.


          StarCraft Remastered has a release date and price   

 

The remaster of StarCraft, StarCraft Remastered, that was announced in March, will be coming to PCs worldwide on August 14th for $15 USD. The remastered version of the game will include the Brood War expansion. You can preorder the game now and it'll live in the Blizzard app.

The artwork and visual assets have been redone, with native widescreen aspect ratio and 4K support. Audio has been refined as well, and players can even swap between the new and old graphics incase you're some idiot who likes BAD, OLD graphics.

The gameplay will remain the same, with the same beloved balance between the races, Turron, Proots, and Zoorb. More news to come, I'm sure.


          Inside Mae Beavers: A Parody Arises   
Your PeskyFly was considering a soft-core parody of Tennessee's puritanical, porn-busting gubernatorial candidate Sen. Mae Beavers. The premise: Me and May would destroy millions of innocent young lives with passionate acts of slippery abandon. Awesome so far, right? Catch was, I couldn't come up with the right title. Should it be Around the World with Mae Beavers? 69 Things I Know About Mae Beavers? Strangers in a Strange Beaver? Butt Slammers Vol. 4? So many choices, none of them quite right.

Like they say, when you snooze you lose. While I was dithering, some industrious person was busy crafting a Mae Beavers parody that's so much better than anything I might have come up with because, presumably, this call's coming from inside "the House."

The entire text, typos and all, as originally shared by the Nashville Scene.

How to be The Ultraconservative Candidate
Nothing is more important when running for office in Tennessee than getting the conservative vote – and it is the ultraconservative who will probably win the election. So how can you appear to be the ultraconservative candidate?

Preeminence: Make yourself the preeminent conservative in the state. Remember, it is a competition, and by passive aggressively one-upping all other politicians, you can appear to be really nice but in reality, you are crushing the reputations and political futures of potential opponents. Which is good to do because self-centered, attention-grabbing is a useful skill to ensure your future political success.

Secure your superiority through negative contrasting; unnecessarily make comparisons that negatively contrast other elected officials with you. This will present you in the most positive light. Should an official try to claim that they are conservative, what they are really doing is claiming to be more conservative than you. Put an end to this by calling them a RINO, and inferring that they secretly support an income tax.

The key to being the preeminent conservative is control. Control is the glue that holds conservatives who lack critical thinking skills together. It is also a passive aggressive technique you can use against other Republicans; it is really the best way to ensure that you receive the constant attention and admiration from the public that you deserve.

Remember, being in office for 25 years doesn’t mean you are an establishment politician as long as you always call other conservatives who have been in office for a shorter amount of time than you establishment politicians. This helps you assert your dominance in the lives of everyone around you, and dominance helps to improve your life. If anyone doubts you, simply recite your impossible dogmatic standards or your rabid deep-seated feelings of victimization.

Public Speeches: Supplying detail in your public speeches is bad, and may cause you to have to answer actual questions; so speak in vague generalities and platitudes at all times. People will read between the lines and respond with total adoration and obedience. If political insecurities necessitate wild claims about ISIS infiltration or constituents – sweep the room for mics first.

Be sure to call all other Republicans RINOs, that way these officials will learn that they have done something wrong, and because you should be speaking in vague generalities, people will just assume you are the only real conservative without any way to actually measure. They will also believe that all other legislators are simply RINOs at the core of their being.

Further, each time you make negative accusations about the legislature, it is encouragement for them to be more conservative.

Statesmanship: Emphasizing your own statesmanship through snarky comments has the added benefit of shaming other legislators – communicating your own statesmanship through misdirected shame is a direct way to communicate that you are preeminent, and don’t forget – they deserve it.

Legislation: Be legislatively savvy. File bills that appear so conservative that they are actually unconstitutional. Then issue a press release that takes advantage of the blind support of people who don’t know the difference. Insist on running these bills in committee; when the Attorney General opines that the bill is constitutionally suspect this is your big chance to issue a second press release that labels the AG and your Republican colleagues as RINOs – which makes you appear to be the only real conservative in the legislature.

Paint your record as something completely different than what it is. Your oath to uphold the Constitution should never get in the way of your own narcissistic desire for preeminence. Only a true freedom fighter would file an unconstitutional bill, and your refusal to fix your bill by making it constitutional can easily be justified by a plain folks’ appeal that encompasses name calling and proper over simplification of the actual legal issues.

Never let anyone else’s conservative efforts be good enough for you. Remember, if another legislator asks for your support for their ultraconservative idea, they’re not trying to be friendly, they are trying to overthrow your tyrannical reign of control and dominance. You can’t let that happen. You’ll want to play the trump card of filing a nearly identical bill, except, make it a little more outrageous. Then issue a press release containing a directly indirect passive aggressive message that the first legislator has stolen your work. This clearly puts you back in the driver’s seat.

This technique works for dead ultraconservative bills too. If another legislator’s ultraconservative measure died because it came smack dab up against legal realities, you can steal that bill next year and announce to the world that because that legislator was such a RINO and pathetically decided not to get the job done, you will justly assume your natural position of conservative preeminence. When you come up against the same issues as the prior legislator, you can thoroughly enjoy the renewed sense of purpose that floods into your life while you sit on top of your moral high ground calling the committee members who can’t vote for your unconstitutional bill RINO's.

Budget: Take advantage of the fact that the state budget is so large that no one can possibly know off hand all that it contains. This fact alone creates a lot of suspicion and skepticism among ultraconservatives. In this way, year after year, you can receive statewide attention for being the lone conservative vote against the budget. When media ask why you voted no, supply a simplistic platitude, “There is too much pork in that budget”, an explanation so simple that even a democrat can understand. Pork works because people identify pork with fat, and fat makes people think of indulgence and waste.

Supreme Court: Ignoring Supreme Court cases that have already been decided is another good way to lock down your support from a statewide ultraconservative base while at the same time unmistakably signal your disrespect for the judiciary.

Security: You are entitled to your feelings of needing special treatment, and requiring security makes you appear important enough to protect. But what if no one has actually threatened your life? No problem – your paranoia can assist you in just making something up. Also, by pleading, a wealthy conservative businessman is likely to pay for you to have the constant presence of security whenever you are out in public – this has the added benefit of making you look really important and worthy of protection.

Look the Part: Drive a conservative vehicle. It may be tempting to develop a Lexus nexus with other candidates but that’s really sketchy and y’all in Tennessee … a pickup truck is your best bet.

The Constitution: If you’ve gotten this far, understanding constitutional facts isn’t necessary for you so don’t spend any time on this subject. You’ll want to spend most of your time creating new unconstitutional bills that appear ultraconservative but in reality, will rigidly control people’s lives or help them to realize that they are going to spend eternity in hell.
Since being an ultraconservative is a political philosophy that doesn’t have an actual platform or rule book, you don’t need to know what constitutes an ultraconservative and neither does anybody else. This also means that you have zero knowledge of what may or may not be constitutional in your ultraconservative sense. But don’t worry about that, to fill this small little loop-hole, you only need to publicly preach with conviction that any views you hold are truly ultraconservative, and if anyone else who may actually know something about the constitution raises the specter that you are incorrect, it will be crystal clear that they are actually a RINO and you can call them out on that fact.

These suggestions are a really good start towards your goal of ultraconservative preeminence. Good luck with your political future. 

Hot.


          At least 1 dead, 6 hurt after gunman opens fire inside New York City hospital: police   

NEW YORK—A doctor with a rifle hidden under a lab coat opened fire Friday at the Bronx hospital where he used to work, killing one physician and leaving several other doctors fighting for their lives, authorities said. The gunman fatally shot himself after first trying to set himself on fire, they said.

Authorities described a chaotic scene at Bronx Lebanon Hospital as gunfire erupted at around 2:50 p.m., spreading terror throughout the hospital as employees locked themselves inside rooms and patients feared for their lives.

“I thought I was going to die,” said Renaldo Del Villar, a 55-year-old patient who was in the third-floor emergency room getting treatment for a lower back injury.

Law enforcement officials identified the shooter as Dr. Henry Bello, who was described on the hospital website as a family medicine physician. He resigned from the hospital in 2015 after some sort of dispute, according to one law enforcement official, who said Bello used an AR-15 in the attack.

The officials were not authorized to discuss the still-unfolding investigation and spoke on condition of anonymity.

Ultimately, one female doctor was killed and six others wounded, Mayor Bill de Blasio said.

“This was a horrible situation unfolding in a place that people associated with care and comfort, a situation that came out of nowhere,” de Blasio said.

The FBI tweeted that they had found “no nexus to terrorism” so far.

Shortly after receiving a 911 call about an active shooter, police officers went floor by floor, their guns drawn, looking for the gunman. They learned just before 4 p.m. he was dead inside the building. De Blasio confirmed that the Bello killed himself, while Police commissioner James O’Neill said he tried to set himself on fire.

Employees and their loved ones described the horrifying moments as they scrambled for information.

Garry Trimble said his wife, hospital employee Denise Brown, called him from inside the hospital shortly after 3 p.m.

“She woke me up and told me there was a situation, somebody’s out there shooting people,” Trimble said as he waited for his wife to come out. “I could hear in her voice she was shaking and about to cry.”

Gonzalo Carazo described the scary scene to WCBS-TV. “I saw one of the doctors and he had a gunshot wound to his hand,” Carazo said.

“All I heard was a doctor saying, “Help, help!” Carazo locked himself in a room for about 15 minutes until police came and led him out of the hospital.

The 120-year-old hospital has nearly 1,000 beds and one of the busiest emergency rooms in New York City. It is about a mile and a half north of Yankee Stadium.

In 2011, two people were shot at Bronx Lebanon in what police said was a gang-related attack.

          VSIX Extension Gallery for Visual Studio   
In a [previous article](/2017/05/vs-itemtemplates-wizards-and-vsix.html) I discussed how to create Item and Project templates and bundle them into their own VSIX installers. However, now that you have your VSIX installer the question becomes how do you distribute it to all your coworkers? It would be great if they could use the _Extensions and Updates_ manager that is already built into Visual Studio. That handles installing, uninstalling, searching and auto-updating extensions. Pretty neat! However the project you have is not suitable to have in a public VSIX repository like the [Visual Studio Marketplace](https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/vs).
The public marketplace is no place for internal company extensions unfortunately.

The public marketplace is no place for internal company extensions unfortunately.

You need to host your own private marketplace. **But how?** TL;DR; I built one # Private Extension Galleries Microsoft has [addressed this issue](https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visualstudio/2011/10/03/private-extension-galleries-for-the-enterprise/) but only through documentaton. There are no concrete implementations available from Microsoft nor any others on how to host and serve these files. Neither is there a simple way to leverage the advanced features the Extension Manager provides (such as search, ratings and download counts). ## So what is available? Unfortunately the commercial offerings are incredibly limited. The main one [myget.org](https://www.myget.org) is purely online and regretfully not free. The popular [Nexus Repository](https://www.sonatype.com/nexus-repository-oss) by Sonatype dropped support for VSIX files in their latest version (v3). There are some [half-automated](https://github.com/garrettpauls/VSGallery.AtomGenerator) solutions out there, others [very manual](https://www.codeproject.com/Articles/881890/Your-Private-Extension-Gallery). The worst thing about most of the automatic offerings is that they require being run on an [existing webserver](http://blog.ehn.nu/2012/11/using-private-extension-galleries-in-visual-studio-2012/) (IIS, Apache, Ngix, etc) and require a relational database system to store data. So there really is no freely available out-of-the-box solution available. **Until now...** # Introducing vsgallery

With the current rise in popularity of [_the Microservice_](https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Microservices) I found it really disappointing that a simple click-to-run solution wasn't available to run a private Visual Studio Marketplace. I wanted something simple and self-contained that could be run without installing and configuring multiple other systems (such as a webserver and a database system). ## The VS Gallery solution Before I bore you with more text, go ahead and test [_vsgallery_](https://github.com/sverrirs/vsgallery) out. Just download the latest release and run the executable file. It is really that super simple. I promise! Download vsgallery **vsgallery** is a single executable file which acts as a complete self hosted extension gallery for Visual Studio 2010 and newer. It really is ultra simple to configure and run. You are up and running in a few seconds. All for the low low price of **FREE**! The whole system runs as a single self-contained executable and uses no database. All files and data are stored on the local file system which makes maintenance and backup super simple.
## Features * Fully featured Extension Gallery ready to use in Microsoft Visual Studio. * Counts downloads of extensions * Displays star ratings, release notes and links to project home pages * Offers a simple to use REST API to submit ratings and upload new VSIX packages * Atom and JSON feeds for available packages * It's FREE! # How to install into Visual Studio In Visual Studio ``` Tools > Options > Environment > Extensions and Updates ``` Add a new entry and copy in the URL of the main Microservice Atom Feed. > By default the URL is `http://YOUR_SERVER:5100/feeds/atom.xml`
Please consult [this MSDN document](https://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/hh266746.aspx) for any further details and alternative options on how to install a Private Extension Gallery in Visual Studio. # How it works The microservice is configured via the `config.ini` file that sits in the same folder as the main executable. The `.vsix` files, along with their download counts and ratings data are stored in a subfolder of the main service executable `VsixStorage/` (this subfolder is configurable). This makes taking backups and moving the service between machines super easy as the root folder contains the entire Microservice state and data. ``` root-folder |--vsgallery.exe |--config.ini |--VsixStorage |--atom.xml |--First.vsix |--Second.vsix |--AndSoForth.vsix ``` Latest release # The vsgallery API The Microservice comes with a rich HTTP based API. You can plug the data and its functionality directly into your development portal or company intranet with minimal web programming. Even direct integration into your continuous integration platforms and communication pipelines such as #slack are possible. > The `vsix_id` required by many of the endpoints can be obtained by reading the `id` field in the feed endpoints. ### [GET] /feeds/atom.xml This is the main entry point for the VSIX feed and serves up the Syndicate-Feed compatible Atom file containing all available extensions on the server. **This is the URL endpoint that should be used in Visual Studio.** See [How to install into Visual Studio](#how-to-install) for more information. ### [GET] /api/ratings/{vsix_id} Retrieves the rating value and vote count for a particular VSIX package by its ID. ``` curl -X GET http://VSGALLERY_SERVER:5100/api/ratings/VSIX_ID ``` The return type is the following JSON ``` { "rating": 4.3, "count": 19 } ``` ### [POST/PUT] /api/ratings/{vsix_id} Submitting rating values for a particular VSIX package by its ID. The post payload should be just raw string and contain a single floating point value in the range between [0.0, 5.0]. The example below will post a rating of `3.5` stars to VSIX package with the id `VSIX_ID` ``` curl -X POST -H "Content-Type: text/plain" --data "3.5" http://VSGALLERY_SERVER:5100/api/ratings/VSIX_ID ``` ### [GET] /api/json JSON feed for the entire package catalog. Same data that is being fed through the atom feed but just in a handier JSON format. ### [POST/PUT] /api/upload This endpoint accepts form-data uploads of one or more .vsix files to the hosting service. The example below will upload the file `my.vsix` to the gallery server and propose a new name for it `renamed.vsix` (you can omit the filename param to use the original name) ``` curl -X POST --form "file=@my.vsix;filename=renamed.vsix" http://VSGALLERY_SERVER:5100/api/upload ``` To upload multiple files simply add more form elements. The example below uploads two VSIX files at the same time. ``` curl -X POST --form "file1=@my.vsix" --form "file1=@your.vsix" http://VSGALLERY_SERVER:5100/api/upload ``` # Closing So if you're searching for a simple solution for your internal, low traffic, extension gallery then please consider **vsgallery**. If you do try it out, please leave me feedback in the comments below. Peace! vsgallery

The Unspeakable Oath

Announcing the Second Mythos Pack in The Path to Carcosa

"…So numerous are the recorded troubles in insane asylums, that only a miracle can have stopped the medical fraternity from noting strange parallelisms and drawing mystified conclusions."
     – H.P. Lovecraft, The Call of Cthulhu

Fantasy Flight Games is proud to announce the upcoming release of The Unspeakable Oath, the second Mythos Pack in The Path to Carcosa cycle for Arkham Horror: The Card Game!

It was always going to come to this… You're finally headed to the asylum.

Something about the mysterious play, The King in Yellow, had nagged at the corners of your mind before it arrived in Arkham, and you began investigating. You learned madness and disaster followed the play everywhere it went. And still you dug deeper.

You attended the performance. You came face to face with terrors that still haunt you. And then—having barely survived your earlier encounters, and hanging onto the remnants of your tattered sanity—you went to the Arkham Historical Society in search of even more information.

Now, as you look to carry forward through The Path to Carcosa campaign, you may find yourself wracked by Doubt and surrounded by Lunatics. And, still, you'll catch hints of deeper and darker secrets.

What Madness Compels You?

With the new scenario coming in The Unspeakable Oath, Arkham Horror: The Card Game continues and deepens its exploration of the mystical realms between the traditional roleplaying and card game experiences.

First of all, you have the strong sense of place that's exceedingly rare among card games. You're not wandering the streets of Arkham, nor the wooded New England hillsides. Instead, you're wandering the hallways of an eerily quiet asylum—perhaps punctuated, at times, by mournful howls or manic laughter—and need to gain passage through several locked doors.

The fact that doors can be locked against you is important in the sense that it allows the adventure to unfold at the same sort of pace with which a Game Master might walk you through an adventure. And it matters because you can only act upon objects and information in your investigator's location. Moreover, if you and your fellow investigators split your company, you might cover more ground… or you might render yourselves vulnerable.

Next, you have the different ways the scenario preys upon the game's cooperative nature and the relationships you try to maintain with your fellow investigators. After The Path to Carcosa introduced the Hidden keyword, which forces you to hold cards in your hand—and keep them hidden from the other investigators—The Unspeakable Oath adds more of these cards, so that your experience of the game might not match that of the other players. And none of them will understand you.

Your secrets will isolate you from your companions. In the depths of an asylum.

Think about that…

Finally, the scenario breaks away from the traditional customizable card game experience by forcing you to live with the consequences of other games.

Yes, you can play and enjoy The Unspeakable Oath as a standalone adventure, but for those who dare to look more deeply, The Unspeakable Oath comes to life most fully as part of The Path to Carcosa campaign. It is, in fact, the fourth chapter in that campaign, and it represents the nexus of many possible paths through time and space. But those paths are not all equal.

Normally, when you sit at your table to play a customizable card game, you start fresh. There's nothing imposing itself upon your starting hand or the resources with which you might start the game. But in the Arkham LCG®, the choices you make in earlier adventures may come back to haunt you later on. The game's basic structure is the campaign, as in an RPG, and you are often given choices to make in your games—and between them—that aren't clearly about winning or losing, but just about how your investigator would respond to a given situation.

And in The Unspeakable Oath, these choices already come back with profound ramifications, literally restructuring the adventure depending upon the consequences of your earlier investigations. Choices you make in your games—the people to whom you choose to speak and the ways you interact with powerful artifacts—will impact the structure of the adventure's act deck, as well as the composition of its encounter deck.

You're Never Truly Alone

Along with its new scenario, The Unspeakable Oath introduces twenty-four new player cards (two copies each of twelve different player cards) that allow you to "learn" from your mistakes. As you gain experience, you can use that experience to enhance your deck with cards like Forewarned (The Unspeakable Oath, 150) and A Test of Will (The Unspeakable Oath, 156).

Alternatively, you may forge an alliance with one of the Mythos Pack's new Patrons, Charles Ross, Esq. (The Unspeakable Oath, 149) and Dario El-Amin (The Unspeakable Oath, 151). Naturally, as Patrons, both of these gentlemen come with valuable connections.

Charles Ross, Esq. helps you gain access to a whole host of powerful Items, reducing their costs by one each time he exhausts. You can think of him as your personal connection to the Disc of Itzamna (Core Set, 41), making it easier to afford and discard—and then to afford again. While your investigator has a limited number of body slots to which these Items can be assigned, meaning there's a limit on the total financial benefit you can derive from recruiting the services of Charles Ross, Esq., it's worth noting that that limit is a great deal less restrictive than it might first appear.

First of all, there's the fact that you might choose to discard one Item in favor of another—or just because discarding it is in your best interests. Many of the game's most powerful Items, like the Disc of Itzamna, are discarded when you use them, and Charles Ross, Esq. lends significant value if you intend to use these items over and over—such as you might if you're playing Rex Murphy (The Dunwich Legacy, 2) with Scavenging (Core Set, 73).

Perhaps more importantly, there's the fact that the Arkham LCG can support as many as four players, and Charles Ross, Esq. works with any investigator at your location, not just yours. If you and your teammates can coordinate your purchases, Charles Ross, Esq. can easily save your group at least one resource each and every round.

Meanwhile, the unscrupulous Dario El-Amin can provide you access to an astonishing array of benefits, all of which should certainly help you find your way out of the asylum. As a single action, Dario El-Amin allows you to claim two resources. He's also more than willing to offer bonuses to both your Willpower and your Intellect—provided you can meet his demands.

Dario El-Amin may be a Patron of the arts, but it's clear that he's looking less to prop up struggling artists than to invest in characters and endeavors with records of proven success. The permanent attribute boosts that Dario El-Amin can provide are fantastically valuable, but the Patron requires you to sit on a stockpile of no fewer than ten resources if you want those bonuses.

Fortunately, that's not too much of a problem for Rogue investigators like Jenny Barnes (The Dunwich Horror, 3), who can gain resources fast with cards like Burglary (Core Set, 45), Hot Streak (Core Set, 57), and Lone Wolf (Blood on the Altar, 188). And once you have all those resources at your disposal, it'll be good to know that Dario El-Amin will be, at least, a little invested in seeing you make your way out of the asylum.

Adversity Breeds Adventure

It's a good thing that Arkham Horror: The Card Game isn't real life. We don't really want to stare down unspeakable horrors, suffer grievous internal injuries, and feel our minds fracturing with the burden of all we've witnessed.

But it makes for great fiction. And in the Arkham LCG, it makes for great adventure.

Soon, you'll have your chance to enjoy yet another of these horrifying adventures. In The Unspeakable Oath, you'll find the world closing around you. You'll be stuck in the asylum. Surrounded by Lunatics. Threatened by monsters and madness… And your games couldn't be better!

Look for your chance to revel in the madness when The Unspeakable Oath (AHC13) makes its way to retailers in the third quarter of 2017!

          The Secrets of Time and Space   
Published 29 June 2017 | Arkham Horror: The Card Game

The Secrets of Time and Space

A Preview of Lost in Time and Space for Arkham Horror: The Card Game

"There were, in such voyages, incalculable local dangers; as well as that shocking final peril which gibbers unmentionably outside the ordered universe, where no dreams reach; that last amorphous blight of nethermost confusion which blasphemes and bubbles at the centre of all infinity…"
     – H.P. Lovecraft, The Dream-Quest of Unknown Kadath

Okay, let's just imagine for a moment that world isn't ending. Let's say everything in your investigation is going great… or at least as well as things ever go in Arkham Horror: The Card Game. You've uncovered some cultists, you've thwarted some rituals, and there's no immediate threat of world-shattering doom.

Sounds great, right?

Indeed, if you get to this point in The Dunwich Legacy, you've put in a lot of good work and certainly deserve a rest. If anyone could possibly fathom what you've done, they should give you a medal. Multiple medals.

Unfortunately, that's not going to happen. First of all, no one's going to understand or believe a word of what you tell them. All the evidence of planar rifts, extra-dimensional monsters, and sorcerous rituals has been conveniently removed from this plane of existence. But that's not the only thing standing between you and your hero's reward. In fact, it's not even the main obstacle…

The bigger problem—the one that's swirling in chaotic fashion all around you—would be the fact that you're not on Earth. In the appropriately titled Lost in Time and Space, you find yourself separated from our reality, desperately looking for your way back. And the ground—or worlds? or portals? or realities?—all around you are randomly opening and expanding and closing, tossing you about a tumultuous vortex of swirling possible worlds.

Actions and Allies at the Edge of Reality

Fortunately, you won't have to travel these alien worlds alone. If you choose, you can wander them with the powerful new neutral ally from Lost in Time and Space, The Red-Gloved Man (Lost in Time and Space, 310).

A mysterious stranger in a strange land, The Red-Gloved Man won't show you his face or even stick around for more than a turn. So why would you even play him, much less pay five of your extremely valuable experience points in order to add him to your deck? The answer is because when he shows up, he can make an immediate and powerful impact upon the course of events.

When you bring him into play, The Red-Gloved Man allows to choose two of your skills, then raises the chosen skills to a base value of six until he leaves play. In other words, he doesn't just make you good at a couple of skills, he makes you exceptionally good at the two skills you need the most—right now!

And while you'll likely be sad to see him go at the end of the mythos phase, the fact that The Red-Gloved Man comes with the Fast keyword means you'll at least be able to take advantage of his talents for a full turn's worth of actions.

What does that mean?

It means that since The Red-Gloved Man can provide any current investigator's best base skill a bump of at least one point—and improves numerous investigators' weakest skills by four points (or more)—he'll be an invaluable companion in those crucial end fights or when your mind is stressed to the point of fragmentation by the impossible angles of the non-Euclidian geometries swirling and bending all around you.

It also means that The Red-Gloved Man is best saved for those turns when everything's coming down to the wire and it's time to fire off the abilities of all your Police Badges (Core Set, 27), Quick Thinking (Undimensioned and Unseen, 229), and The Gold Pocket Watch (Lost in Time and Space, 305) in one last, desperate bid for escape from the shifting realities that surround you. Back to the thin veil of "stability" and "normalcy" in a word that is—mostly—ignorant of the many other worlds and dimensions bordering upon ours, as well all the horrific entities inhabiting them.

And if The Red-Gloved Man just happens to be one of those horrors, disguising itself and allying with you for a short period of time, then what is its agenda? And what role do you happen to be playing in the unfathomable plans of someone you thought might have been helping you in yours?

The Strangest Journey

Situated amid a shifting and indescribable nexus of infinite realities, how will you find your way back to Arkham? Will you accept the guidance of the mysterious Red-Gloved Man, who just so happens to be stranded in the same space between worlds as you? Will you load a couple more rounds into your shotgun and fight your way past the strange, winged creatures before you? Will you open your minds to the darkest possibilities of all the Spells you've learned—possibly even consulting the forbidden pages of the Necronomicon?

However you proceed, you're likely to find this one of the strangest and most difficult journeys anyone could possibly imagine.

Share your experiences through The Dunwich Legacy with the other members of our community forums. Then mark your calendars, because in our reality, Lost in Time and Space (AHC08) arrives at retailers next Thursday!

 PRES

Capteur 1 pouce 20 MP, Temps de vol 30 min, Évitement d’obstacles frontal, Fonctions intelligentes et bien plus. Technologie d'imagerie aérienne avancée.

La caméra est équipée d'un capteur de 1 pouce de 20 mégapixels capable de prendre des vidéos 4K / 60fps et des photos en mode rafale à 14 ips. Le système FlightAutonomy inclut 5 capteurs optiques pour détecter les obstacles dans 2 directions et éviter ceux qui sont à l'avant. Le choix d'un alliage de titane et de magnésium augmente la rigidité du châssis et réduit le poids, rendant le Phantom 4 Advanced plus léger que le Phantom 4.

CAMÉRA AVEC CAPTEUR 1 POUCE 20MP
La caméra embarquée est équipée d'un capteur CMOS 1 pouce 20 mégapixels. L'objectif sur-mesure composé de huit éléments, est arrangé en sept groupes.L'obturateur mécanique élimine la distorsion d'obturateur roulant qui peut survenir lors de la prise d'images de sujets en mouvement rapide ou en vol à grande vitesse. En effet, il est comparable aux nombreuses caméras traditionnelles au sol. Le traitement vidéo plus puissant est compatible avec les vidéos 4K H.264 à 60 ips ou H.265 à 30 ips, les deux formats offrant un débit binaire de 100 Mb/s. Les performances du capteur et des processeurs assurent une plage dynamique élevée et un niveau de détail adapté pour une post-production poussée.

L'objectif sur-mesure composé de huit éléments, est arrangé en sept groupes. La caméra est aussi puissante que la plupart des caméras DSLR traditionnelles.

La taille du capteur est plus importante pour la qualité de l'image que le nombre de pixels, car un plus grand capteur contient plus d'informations dans chaque pixel.Cela améliore la plage dynamique, le rapport signal sur bruit et les performances de faible luminosité. Le capteur CMOS d'un pouce et 20 mégapixels du Phantom 4 Advanced est presque quatre fois plus grand que le capteur 1 / 2,3 pouce du Phantom 4. Il utilise des pixels plus grands et a un ISO maximum de 12800 ainsi qu'un contraste augmenté.La qualité est suffisante pour utiliser les images immédiatement, mais capture aussi suffisamment de détails pour la post-production.

VIDÉO 4K PROFESSIONNELLE
Un système de traitement vidéo amélioré permet de capturer la vidéo dans les standards optimisés DCI du cinéma et de la production : 4K / 60 (4096 x 2160 / 60 ips)à un débit de 100 Mb/s. Vous obtiendrez des plans au ralenti en haute résolution. Le Phantom 4 Advanced prend également en charge le codec vidéo H.265 (résolutionmaximale 4096X2160 / 30 ips). Pour un débit binaire donné, le format de compression H.265 double la quantité de traitement d'image par rapport au H.264 et améliorenettement la qualité d'image. Enregistrer avec une plage dynamique élevée du mode D-log permet de tirer au mieux partie de ces données pour étalonner les couleurs.

OBJECTIF HAUTE RÉSOLUTION
La résolution et le contraste d'un objectif sont essentiels à la qualité de l'image, car seul un objectif de qualité peut capturer des photos nettes et vives en haute résolution.La toute nouvelle caméra du Phantom 4 Advanced dispose d'un objectif grand angle F2.8, pensé pour la photographie aérienne, avec une distance focale de 24 mm. Il comporte huit éléments, dont 2 asphériques, disposés en sept groupes qui s'insèrent dans un cadre plus petit et plus compact. Les images créées présentent une faible distorsion etune faible dispersion, cela garantit aux photos et aux vidéos un rendu net et vif. Les résultats MTF (Modulation Transfer Function) ont été rendus publics afin d'avoir une meilleure compréhension de la performance de la lentille.

CAPTURER CHAQUE INSTANT
L'imagerie aérienne ne sert pas uniquement à capturer des paysages mais aussi à apporter de nouvelles perspectives lorsqu'il s'agit de filmer des scènes d'action ou des courses, par exemple. Capturer des objets se déplaçant à grande vitesse a toujours été un défi pour les caméras volantes à obturateur électronique. Le Phantom 4 Advanced utilise un obturateur mécanique et un objectif à grande ouverture. L'obturateur mécanique d'une vitesse maximale de 1 / 2000s élimine la distorsion d'obturateur roulant qui peut survenir lors de la prise d'images de sujets en mouvement rapide ou en vol à grande vitesse. L'obturateur électronique a également été amélioré avec une vitesse d'obturation maximale de 1/8000 secondes, et un nouveau mode Rafale capable de saisir des clichés à 14 ips et 20 mégapixels pour ne jamais rater l'instant parfait.

5 CAPTEURS OPTIQUES
Composé de 5 capteurs optiques, des positionnements satellites GPS et GLONASS, de capteurs à ultrasons et d'un système de redondance, le système FlightAutonomy donne la capacité au Phantom 4 Advanced de voler en stationnaire avec précision, même dans des endroits sans signal GPS, et de voler dans des environnements complexes. Les deux capteurs optiques avant voient jusqu'à 30 m au devant de l'appareil. Celui-ci peut freiner automatiquement, voler en stationnaire face à des obstacles ou en faire le tour, lorsqu'ils sont dans un rayon de 15 m.

MODES DE VOLS INTELLIGENTS

DESSIN: est une toute nouvelle technologie pour le contrôle des points de repère. Il suffit de tracer un itinéraire à l'écran et le Phantom 4 Advanced se déplacera dans cette direction tout en gardant son altitude verrouillée. Cela permet au pilote de se concentrer sur le contrôle de la caméra et autorise des plans plus complexes. Il existe deux modes Dessin qui peuvent être utilisés dans différents scénarios.Avancer : L'appareil suit la trajectoire à une vitesse régulière avec la caméra orientée dans la direction du vol. Libre (Free) : L'appareil ne se déplace le long de l'itinéraire que lorsqu'il en reçoit l'ordre. Dans ce mode, la caméra peut être orientée dans n'importe quelle direction pendant un vol.
PRES
ACTIVETRACK: Les objets en déplacement rapide peuvent être très difficiles à suivre, mais les algorithmes avancés de reconnaissance d'image utilisés par le Phantom 4 Advanced lui permettent de reconnaître et de suivre l'objet tout en le gardant dans le cadre. Ce nouvel algorithme reconnaît également plus de sujets, les personnes, les véhicules ou encore les animaux, et ajuste sa dynamique de vol pour réaliser des séquences uniformes.Les pilotes peuvent choisir entre :Tracer – Suit le sujet de derrière ou de devant, évitant les obstacles automatiquement.Profil – Vole à côté d'un sujet depuis différents angles pour obtenir des images du sujet de profil.Projecteur – La caméra est fixée sur le sujet pendant que l'appareil vole quasiment n’importe où.
PRES
TAPFLY: Volez dans n'importe quelle direction visible à l'écran d'un simple appui sur l'écran. Touchez n'importe où sur l'écran pour ajuster doucement la direction du vol tout en évitant automatiquement les obstacles*. Appuyez à nouveau sur l'écran ou utilisez les joysticks pour changer de direction. Une nouvelle fonction route AR (Réalité augmentée) montre la trajectoire de vol de l'appareil en temps réel à mesure que son itinéraire est ajusté. Comme il peut être difficile de contrôler simultanément l'altitude, le cap, la vitesse et l'inclinaison de la caméra à l'aide des joysticks, TapFly Libre permet à un pilote de définir la direction du vol, lui laissant plus de marge pour tourner le Phantom 4 Advanced ou incliner la nacelle comme il faut, sans changer la direction de vol. Au total, il existe maintenant deux modes TapFly :TapFly Avancer – Appuyez pour voler dans la direction sélectionnée. TapFly Libre – Verrouille la direction vers l'avant du Phantom sans verrouiller l'orientation de la caméra, ce qui lui permet de pivoter en volant.*L'évitement d’obstacles n'est pas disponible avec TapFly Libre.
PRES
RETURN TO HOME: Avec le mode Return to Home, le Phantom 4 Advanced peut automatiquement choisir la meilleure trajectoire de retour au point de départ en fonction des conditions environnantes. Il enregistre son parcours tout au long du vol, lui permettant de revenir en suivant la même route et en évitant les obstacles en cas de déconnexion avec la radiocommande. Sur la base de son altitude au moment de la déconnexion, le Phantom 4 Advanced est également en mesure d'ajuster sa trajectoire de vol pour éviter les obstacles qu'il a vu pendant son vol. Au décollage, le Phantom 4 Advanced enregistre la scène en-dessous et compare son enregistrement avec ce qu'il voit à son retour, pour un atterrissage plus précis. Il peut également détecter le relief et constater si l'endroit est approprié pour l'atterrissage. Si des obstacles sont découverts, ou s'il y a de l'eau au sol, il alerte le pilote et vole en stationnaire à une hauteur appropriée, afin d'aider l'appareil à atterrir de façon plus sûre.
PRES
MODE GESTES: En utilisant le mode Gestes, les selfies peuvent être réalisés facilement en utilisant quelques gestes sans radiocommande. La technologie avancée de vision par ordinateur permet au Phantom 4 Advanced de recevoir des instructions par l'intermédiaire de gestes. Le sujet soulève simplement les bras en face de la caméra et l'appareil, reconnaissant ce mouvement, se verrouille alors sur le sujet et le place au centre du cadre. Lorsqu'il est prêt pour une photo, le sujet avertit l'appareil en tendant les bras. Un compte à rebours de trois secondes commence, le temps de prendre la pose, permettant de saisir des instants sans radiocommande.
PRES

PERFORMANCES DE VOL

MODES DE VOL: Selon les conditions, les caractéristiques de vol diffèrent, et le Phantom 4 Advanced offre trois modes de vol : P, A et S. En mode Position, TapFly, ActiveTrack, la détection d'obstacle et les fonctions de positionnement sont disponibles. Le mode Sport ajoute une agilité et une vitesse supplémentaires, atteignant 72 km/h (45 mph). Le mode Atti désactive la stabilisation du satellite et maintient l'altitude du Phantom 4 Advanced. Il est idéal pour les pilotes expérimentés qui cherchent à capturer des images plus lisses. Le mode Trépied (Tripod), qui limite la vitesse à 7 km/h (4 mph), offre un contrôle de précision pour le cadrage minutieux et le vol en intérieur.

IMU REDONDANCE DES CAPTEURS: Le Phantom 4 Advanced comprend deux compas et deux IMU, pour une plus grande fiabilité. Compas et IMU sont des capteurs importants pour assurer un vol stable et le Phantom 4 Advanced compare en permanence les données qu'il reçoit des deux paires. Ces données sont traitées à l'aide d'algorithmes avancés pour vérifier leur exactitude et toute donnée inexacte est simplement rejetée sans affecter l'appareil, et en gardant le vol stable et fiable.

BATTERIES INTELLIGENTES: L'imagerie aérienne professionnelle est plus adaptée aux temps de vol plus longs. Le Phantom 4 Advanced a un temps de vol maximum de 30 minutes, il octroie plus de temps dans les airs pour saisir le cliché parfait. L'application DJI GO 4 indique l'autonomie de la batterie et calcule le temps de vol restant en fonction de la distance parcourue et plus encore. Il émet des alertes lorsqu'il atteint un niveau minimum de puissance pour un voyage sûr jusqu'au point de départ. Un système avancé de gestion de la batterie est également présent pour éviter les surcharges et le drainage excessif. Lorsqu'il est stocké à plus long terme, les batteries se déchargent pour maintenir un état correct.

DJI GO 4: Grâce à l'application DJI GO 4, un grand nombre de modes de vol intelligents sont disponibles. Elle fournit également un contrôle total et manuel de la caméra, comme l'ISO, l'ouverture, la vitesse d'obturation, les formats d'image, et bien plus. Tout changement dans DJI GO 4 apparaît presque instantanément à l'écran. Les données de vol vitales et l'état de la transmission vidéo sont faciles à vérifier dans l'application, améliorant ainsi l'efficacité et le confort d'utilisation.

Given yesterday’s teaser, it may not come as a huge shock to learn Stukov has officially been announced as the next hero to join Heroes of the Storm’s Nexus. For now, that’s… kind of all we know. Thankfully, we won’t have to wait long — we’ll be getting a gameplay reveal and developer interview tomorrow...

          Wrestling Genius: Rebranding Gone Wild   
The WWE and the conundrum of rebranding wrestlers in 2012: Recently the WWE has decided to bring back A-train Albert as Lord Tensai and Nexus injury castoff Skip Sheffield as Goldberg knockoff Ryback. Now rebranding wrestlers is as old as pro wrestling, however in the modern era it is much more difficult. Fans of old […]
          The Individual and Community   
For thousands of years, the primary way that a human identified himself was through a community. And then came the Age of Enlightenment, the Light of Reason, the Way of the Individual. And we live amongst the confusion, a few centuries later, mired.

When people fail, we look at them with disappointment, assuming that they didn't take responsibility as an individual for their own life. We discount the role of their community and lift up too high the assumption that people have great power as an individual over their destiny.

We see people succeed and we admire them for taking their life by the reigns and victoriously surging forth as an individual. We downplay the contribution that any kind of community played in their life to prepare them for there accomplishments.

This downgrade of community and obsession with individuality has been part of our heritage for a few centuries now. It's too easy to look at our parents or older generation and reject their traditions and perspectives - for that's what they did in their days, and so on. We inherit from our parents the desire to think for ourselves - which means we must reject any accumulated wisdom they might be able to pass on. How smart is that?

What are the fears associated with a renewed emphasis on community? People don't like to be told what to do. They don't like to be forced into a routine, to have a tradition enforced. People don't like being accountable to people outside their family. People don't want to feel obligated to care for others outside their selective network of friends.

Christians are born into this aura of individualism. It's why we struggle so much with community. Yet Jesus places a high value on community, almost more so than on individualism. In our age, we think that community results from the gathering of individuals. But for Jesus, community is both the origins and nexus for individuality.

Christians are identified as the body of Christ - which implies that we only exist because of our connections to each other. How can a foot increase it's value to the body by insisting on its individuality? Of course the foot is a sort of individual, differentiated from the hand and heart. But it's value is not just that it is different, but that the difference plays a substantial role in giving life to the community to which is attached.

The greatest command for Christians is to love. God is love. We are go give God, to give love to the world. But we can't do that as individuals. Love can only happen in community. You can't love by yourself. You can't even come to know God or love by yourself. It requires a community to give birth to you and those ideas and structures and history from which you benefit and are nurtured. Love is can't be just an exchange between two individuals. Love is what makes community possible, what makes individuals able to be attached and make a contribution to the life of others.

It's almost as if you have to pick one: love or individualism. If you pick love you get community. If you pick individualism, you get yourself, your way of doing things, your thoughts, your attempts to relate to God and know love on your own terms. But God seems to insist on being first and primary - often at the expense of your individuality. God wants you to love and be loved, and that means embracing community, his way of becoming.

The funny thing is, people throw away their individuality in dozens of ways, all the while insisting that they are not going to be bound to community and let someone tell them what to do. So they live in this shadow world, rootless, anchorless, drifting. They claim to be an individual while at the same time embracing the fashion styles of celebrities. Just like a few million other fans. The individual asserts the ability to think for himself, and then aligns himself with a popular modern writer. Just like a few million others.

Oh, we want community. We want to be led. We want to be bound to tradition. We want love. But we've drank so long from the toxic well of the Enlightenment. Even our readings of Scripture, our thoughts on God are fueled by this pervasive attitude of individuality. We think of God as the supreme individual. Except that he exists as the Trinity. And he bound himself up to Israel, and the church. And the world. God lives in community. It's how he expresses love, himself.

We ought to reconsider our attachment to individuality. I am just as much an individualist as the next person. I was born into it, like everyone else. And yet. As powerful as the drug is, the call of community continues. The desire to love and be loved - God, my wife and children, friends, church - results in a draining of those individualistic energies that drive me towards loneliness. I want God's kingdom to come. I want to love. I want to see my city flourish. I want the church to prevail as a blessing. Those are all community-oriented themes that undermine my individuality. So be it.

In light of the spam issue on its social networking platform, Google has announced that it's rolling out a new tool for community moderators. Dubbed "Remove, report, and ban," the company hopes that this will help to curb the swill problem on Google+.

Carter Gibson, the Program Manager for Google+, announced the new option for moderators. Accessed via the overflow menu in a post, selecting this option will remove the offending person and spam content, report said content for review, and prevent that person from rejoining the group.

          [Deal Alert] Get a free $200 Best Buy gift card with the purchase of an unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+   

The Galaxy S8 is a phone with very few flaws - it has a class-leading display, the newest chipset on the market, a great camera, water resistance, wireless charging, and more. However, it's quite expensive, leading many to go for a more affordable device. We've been seeing some sales on the S8 and S8+ lately, and this is one of the best: a free $200 gift card from Best Buy with the purchase of an unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+.

          Moto E4 is out today, available at Republic Wireless, Ting, and Amazon   

The announcement for the Moto E4 earlier this month had us pretty psyched. There's a lot to love about the phone, as the specifications for Motorola's latest E series devices are great for the price. And, now the wait to get your own is over. As of today, you can pick up the Moto E4 at carriers like Republic Wireless and Ting, and you can even buy it unlocked directly from Amazon for use with other carriers.

          [Deal Alert] Ecobee3 smart thermostat is $169.99 (~$20 off) at Best Buy   

The best part about new technology coming out is that the older tech gets cheaper. The ecobee4 smart thermostat was released last month, but at $249, it's a bit pricey. If you don't need the built-in Alexa assistant, the ecobee3 is still a great thermostat, and now it's just $169.99 at Best Buy.

For comparison, the ecobee3 seems to go for around $187-$200 at other stores right now. It's also worth noting that this is the full ecobee3, not the Lite model, so you get one room sensor in the box.

          ML Manager update adds option to upload multiple APKs to APK Mirror [APK Download]   

You might be aware of a little thing we run called APK Mirror. It's a site that hosts (safe) free APKs so you can sideload them instead of waiting for staged rollouts. There are a few ways you can upload your APKs to the site, including the ML manager app. An update today (in beta) makes that even easier with multi-APK uploads.

ML Manager isn't just for APK Mirror (you can save your APKs anyplace), but we've worked with the developer to make uploading to APK Mirror an option.

          The Moto X4 might be coming to Project Fi   

Project Fi is a pretty good carrier if don't use much cellular data, as it only charges $20/month for the base service and $10 per GB used. But only Google's own devices can be activated on the network, and now that the age of Nexus is over, the only choice is a $650+ phone. To fill the network's mid-range gap, Project Fi announced yesterday that a new device "from a partner" would arrive later this year.

          YouTube for Android TV v2.0 brings a major redesign and finally allows autoplay to be turned off [APK Download]   

ytatv

Holy cow, there's an update to the YouTube for Android TV app! It has been a long time–fourteen months, to be precise–and judging by a major bump to the version number, this isn't just a bug fixer. In fact, it carries an entirely redesigned interface, not to mention a few functional changes, as well. This update probably doesn't address many of the requests users have had over the last year, but it's a great step forward and solves at least one major issue: Auto-play.

          OK Google voice command is broken on Android Auto, but a fix is coming soon   

The "OK Google" voice command first came to fruition on the Nexus 5, but it's since made its way across the Google product portfolio. It's especially useful on Android Auto, where it enables drivers to interact with their head units without getting too distracted. Unfortunately, it's currently broken and requires a workaround.

Loads of users are reporting this issue in the Google Product Forums' Android Auto User Community. Many are also suggesting fixes they've found, but they're not reliable.

          Notification importance controls won't work for most apps in Android O, and Google is fine with that   

Android O is going to have a lot of neat stuff, including notification channels for more granular control over what apps can ping you about. However, developers need to get their apps ready by targeting Android O. Until that happens, notification controls will be hobbled in Android O, and Google won't be fixing this apparent problem.

There's a thread in the dev preview issue tracker that explains the problem in detail.

When Corbin reviewed the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 — whoa, that's a mouthful — at the end of 2016, he called it the iPad Air running Android. The display and speed impressed him, but one of his major complaints was the software: both the added ASUS customizations and the fact that it ran Marshmallow gave him pause before recommending it. At the time, ASUS said that Nougat would come to the tablet, but wasn't sure when.

Way back in 2012, Artem shared one awesome tip here on Android Police: how to limit your searches on the Play Store to just publisher names or words in the title of an app or game. (Yes, I know, back then Artem used to actually write articles here instead of hiding on Google+ and managing us writers like the puppet master that he's become.) However, that trick stopped working in February 2014, as reported by Artem himself in the comment section.

That's one philosophical way of introducing this new watch face by Tha PHLASH, Timecraft.

It snowed the past few days in Jersey.  These aren't exactly snow boots but I wear them anyway.  I found them on eBay 2 years ago for $25!  I just need to get the inside lining so my toes don't freeze in the snow! 


This is another sneak peek at the pieces on my rack at Tommy Hilfiger.  Loved this faux fur vest and burgundy blouse.  The vest is 40% off in store right now too! Can't wait to show you more.  


This was definitely a cool moment for me seeing my blog's banner on the rack at TH.  Very appreciative!

I am going to be hosting an in app event called Urban Prepster.  Here is a brief description:
 "An urban prepster is classic yet trendy.  Coordinate conservative separates with edgy finishes.  Possibly pair a crisp button down blouse with a leather jacket and chunky jewelry."
  The game goes live tomorrow 12/12 at 12pm PST and ends 12/15 at 12PM PST.  Voting results will be available on 12/16 at 12PM.  Let me know if any of you download the app and decide to play!

Its not just the screen.

I'm just giving some example as to why even Nexus are just not good enough (except Nexus 4) and maybe Nexus 10.

There's lots of other things that matter. Apps that works on your first but not the second device, video codec, Android updates, etc. Maybe I expected much from the Google backed Nexus branding but thats just it. Plain, too plain. Thats why Apple beat Android soundly in America where everyone has multiple devices from the same brands. Experience differs too much sometimes when moving from one devices to another.

Yes, the PPI card dont work anymore. There are minor differences but that just the different screen technology used.

Going forward, Apple might end up stronger than Google still. The numbers is on Google side due to the low end devices. I think if compare 4S/5 vs Highend Android (S3, Note, OneX), I think Apple still way ahead and this is critical. It is this segment which push the limit of the technology, not those low end market.

          The War on Drugs Places 'Black Joy' in the Line of Fire   
Black youth never get the privileges of innocence and 'youthful indiscretions' extended to their white peers.

*Editor's note: In this monthly blog series, the Drug Policy Alliance will examine the nexus between the War on Drugs and law enforcement practices that result in the mass criminalization, incarceration and dehumanization of communities of color.  These pieces will reflect on the ways in which the institutions of policing and prosecution- both driven by calls for “law and order” in the wake of the War on Drugs-  continue to function as instruments of reinforcement for the overarching structural racism on which the drug war was founded.

Over the past several weeks, the details surrounding the tragic killing of Jordan Edwards have been revealed under the intensely watchful eye of a public that continues to face a seemingly never-ending flood of stories recounting instances of police brutality and the pervasive lack of justice for black victims on the receiving end of police misconduct.

Outside of a media sphere permeated by meticulously crafted, state-serving narratives marked by the use of coded language as a form of fear mongering that encourages brutalization in carrying out the war on drugs and cultivates public apathy towards the victims of such violence, a situation in which a police officer responding to a neighbor’s call about possible underage drinking that ends with the use of lethal force on a car full of frightened kids could not be dressed as anything other than a senseless act of violence. This murder reinforces the message that the protections associated with the assumption of innocence and positive police discretion towards instances of youthful indiscretion are not privileges extended to black youth

Further, a failure to also identify this situation as one where the duty to protect and serve was superseded by aninstitutional obsession with policing and restricting the autonomy of black people would require willful ignorance of the history of enslavement and subjugation of black people in this country.

Jordan’s story is not anomalous. The explosion in exposure of police brutality across the nation and subsequent reflection on my own experiences with law enforcement while growing up in Dallas quickly led me to the sobering realization that any of the nights I enjoyed not long ago, when I was Jordan’s age, could have ended in tragedy. The price of this realization has been an existence marred by constant feelings of fear and anxiety about what could happen and how my personal relationship with drugs might be used in an attempt to strip me of my humanity posthumously.

As a result, I often find myself preemptively policing my actions, my speech, expressions of my emotions, my movements, and even my writing, but none of these things have proven adequate in protecting me from potentially volatile interactions with law enforcement or figures that have been endowed with authority to use force by whatever institution employs them.

Knowing that I am not alone is deeply saddening.

What is much more devastating, however, is reading in the Dallas Morning News that kids who occupy some of the same spaces I once did experienced such a degree of psychological trauma from Jordan’s death and similar situations that they feel they have no choice but to forfeit simple joys of youth like playing basketball and partying with friends.

Living with the psychological burden imposed by the constant threat of state violence is not freedom. We cannot begin to chip away at the hyper-criminalization of black and Latino youth until we end the war on drugs. If not, the reality most of America is privileged enough to enjoy - the assumption that an interaction with law enforcement will not end in their demise - will remain an aspiration at best.

When I was in elementary school, a large part of the school’s efforts to convince us to “just say no” to drugs involved encouraging us to “dare to be different.” As an adult, I am imploring the powers that be and those who have been complicit in cultivating this drug war climate to put the same amount of time and resources into daring police to allow all youth the space to enjoy their lives without fear of those entrusted with the responsibility of protecting them.

Right now the Pixel and Pixel XL are the only phones that work with Project Fi currently in stock, and given the age of the Nexus 6P and 5X, it could be that neither will return.

          Google Calendar not syncing to Nana's Nexus 7   
For some reason, Google Calendar on Mum's Nexus 7 has a long-standing bug where it spontaneously forgets how to sync her calendar data.  Since I'm on the other side of the country, and I don't use Android at all these days, here are the notes on how to fix the issue.
  • Open Settings
  • Select Storage
  • Select Apps Data and Media
  • Sort Apps By Name (using the right-hand menu)
  • Scroll down to Calendar
  • Remove Data
  • Scroll down to Calendar Storage (this should be the next one on from Calendar)
  • Remove Data
Make sure you do both Calendar and Calendar Storage!
  • Go back to top of Settings
  • Under Accounts, go to Google Accounts
  • Select Sync (using right-hand menu)

          Nexus 7 vs iPad Mini   
Yet another comparison between the Nexus 7 and the iPad Mini. This is going to be my collection of notes to myself of stuff I notice as time goes by.

Physical Size

A number of people have commented that "its much bigger" (the iPad) seeing two devices side by side with their screens on, and it feels like the aspect ratio (width/height) of the iPad is more pleasing than the Nexus.

Screen

The screen on the iPad seems larger, which is no surprise because it is about 3cm wider and 2cm taller. However, I think the secret is that the iPad only shows 4 rows of 5 icons whereas the Nexus crams in 6 rows of 6 icons.

In terms of resolution, my old eyes aren't really picking a difference.

What is odd is that the iPad feels more natural to hold in landscape where the Nexus feels better in portrait.  Perhaps that's because it was only recently that Android coped properly with a portrait orientation launcher.  Or it could be the slight different in screen proportions.  The iPad Mini really feels like the bottom half of a "real" iPad, and for the most part, that feels like enough.

Keyboard

Both devices have context-specific keyboards that they flip in as required.  Only the Nexus is stupid enough to leave the '@' key off the URL keyboard, making it impossible to search for, say, steve@apple.com in the Google Chrome browser.  This is still true at Android 4.2

Maps+GPS

Big win for the Nexus - because it has a GPS chip on-board, and Google Maps can make large chunks of the mapbase available offline, you can prepare for a days walk around Paris by pre-caching the map, then relying on the on-board GPS to let you know where you are.

Stop press:  I took it out for a walk today and it looks like the offline'd maps had un-offlined themselves.  I stood in the Camberwell Market waiting for the Maps app to wake up, and it never did.

And it looks like Apple have done something spooky where they seem to be able to get location *without* a GPS chip onboard, if you are in sight of civilisation.  This probably depends on how well they have mapped the area you are in, but for wandering Paris, I'm wondering if the iPod Touch won't be sufficient.

Wifi

Comparing the iPad Mini against both my iPad1 and the Nexus, the Mini does not seem to have the same range as the others.  There are rooms in the house where the Mini sees no signal while the other two get enough to work.

Stop press: buying an Airport Extreme made it possible for the Mini to see the farther rooms in the house. However, the Nexus does not see the 5GHz bands, only the 2GHz ones, whereas the Mini is fine with both.

Calendar Application

To be fair, by the time I wrote this section, I don't own the Nexus any more, it moved on to my mother who is 80% happy with it, except when it goes stupid for no apparent reason.

iCloud synchronises all my contacts & calendars without causing any grief whatsoever across multiple devices. (iPod/iPad/iPad Mini)

Android has dropped all knowledge of Mums Google Calendar multiple times now, and Internet Wisdom suggests that the fix is to "delete the local calendar data, disconnect syncing, reconnect syncing and wait".  Not something that the novice user wants to do.  In fact, there are a disturbing number of posts that suggest that when these things go wrong, "reset the device and reinstall everything from scratch".

          Istanbul   
May started with a bang for me with a trip to Istanbul to attend the Global Summit of Women! What an experience to be amongst so many inspiring women who are successful in their own respective fields! The delegates from Malaysia led by our First Lady of Malaysia were organized by SMECorp. Thanks so much to Kak Normah for taking me to Istanbul!!

Perfect weather with clear blue skies!

The Global Summit of Women was conceived as the nexus at which all sectors - public, private & non-profit - would come together under the common vision of dramatically expanding women's economic opportunities globally through exchanges of working solutions and creative strategies forged by women leaders in all parts of the world. I was so proud to be a Malaysian as our leaders both in the public and private sectors were great speakers who shined! Our very own Women's Minister, Datuk Shahrizat was easily the best speaker of the whole Summit!

With Kak Normah: the ambience at a centuries old cistern was mystical

Wonderful friends we met: Yati, Joanne & Alice

The Haunting Swirling Dervishes
Hagia Sofya is a must see in Istanbul

The Beautiful Blue Mosque

The Grand Bazaar's tempting wares!

Istanbul, being right at the border between Europe and Asia, is a land of contrasts. They are neither European nor Asian - exactly somewhere in between. This fusion of cultures is reflected in everything in Istanbul, their architecture, their food, their traditions.. even their approach to religion. We were lucky to be there in Spring with the sun shining brightly and the cool wind blowing. Flowers - tulips, tulips, tulips, of every colour imaginable - were everywhere! Istanbul is hauntingly beautiful.

For me, it was a such an eye-opener! Meeting all those wonderful ladies from Malaysia in such diverse fields was electric! A shock to my system! I realize that there is a huge world out there outside of Melaka & perhaps, it's time to spread my wings and fly!!! (^_^)

In light of the spam issue on its social networking platform, Google has announced that it's rolling out a new tool for community moderators. Dubbed "Remove, report, and ban," the company hopes that this will help to curb the swill problem on Google+.

Carter Gibson, the Program Manager for Google+, announced the new option for moderators. Accessed via the overflow menu in a post, selecting this option will remove the offending person and spam content, report said content for review, and prevent that person from rejoining the group.

The Galaxy S8 is a phone with very few flaws - it has a class-leading display, the newest chipset on the market, a great camera, water resistance, wireless charging, and more. However, it's quite expensive, leading many to go for a more affordable device. We've been seeing some sales on the S8 and S8+ lately, and this is one of the best: a free $200 gift card from Best Buy with the purchase of an unlocked Galaxy S8 or S8+.

The best part about new technology coming out is that the older tech gets cheaper. The ecobee4 smart thermostat was released last month, but at $249, it's a bit pricey. If you don't need the built-in Alexa assistant, the ecobee3 is still a great thermostat, and now it's just $169.99 at Best Buy.

For comparison, the ecobee3 seems to go for around $187-$200 at other stores right now. It's also worth noting that this is the full ecobee3, not the Lite model, so you get one room sensor in the box.

          ML Manager update adds option to upload multiple APKs to APK Mirror [APK Download]   

You might be aware of a little thing we run called APK Mirror. It's a site that hosts (safe) free APKs so you can sideload them instead of waiting for staged rollouts. There are a few ways you can upload your APKs to the site, including the ML manager app. An update today (in beta) makes that even easier with multi-APK uploads.

ML Manager isn't just for APK Mirror (you can save your APKs anyplace), but we've worked with the developer to make uploading to APK Mirror an option.

But only Google's own devices can be activated on the network, and now that the age of Nexus is over, the only choice is a $650+ phone. To fill the network's mid-range gap, Project Fi announced yesterday that a new device "from a partner" would arrive later this year.

Holy cow, there's an update to the YouTube for Android TV app! It has been a long time–fourteen months, to be precise–and judging by a major bump to the version number, this isn't just a bug fixer. In fact, it carries an entirely redesigned interface, not to mention a few functional changes, as well. This update probably doesn't address many of the requests users have had over the last year, but it's a great step forward and solves at least one major issue: Auto-play.

The "OK Google" voice command first came to fruition on the Nexus 5, but it's since made its way across the Google product portfolio. It's especially useful on Android Auto, where it enables drivers to interact with their head units without getting too distracted. Unfortunately, it's currently broken and requires a workaround.

Loads of users are reporting this issue in the Google Product Forums' Android Auto User Community. Many are also suggesting fixes they've found, but they're not reliable.

Android O is going to have a lot of neat stuff, including notification channels for more granular control over what apps can ping you about. However, developers need to get their apps ready by targeting Android O. Until that happens, notification controls will be hobbled in Android O, and Google won't be fixing this apparent problem.

When Corbin reviewed the ASUS ZenPad 3S 10 — whoa, that's a mouthful — at the end of 2016, he called it the iPad Air running Android. The display and speed impressed him, but one of his major complaints was the software: both the added ASUS customizations and the fact that it ran Marshmallow gave him pause before recommending it. At the time, ASUS said that Nougat would come to the tablet, but wasn't sure when.

Way back in 2012, Artem shared one awesome tip here on Android Police: how to limit your searches on the Play Store to just publisher names or words in the title of an app or game. (Yes, I know, back then Artem used to actually write articles here instead of hiding on Google+ and managing us writers like the puppet master that he's become.) However, that trick stopped working in February 2014, as reported by Artem himself in the comment section.

What's time but a series of building blocks of infinitesimally small moments? You change one block and the whole structure could be modified, you add and add and add more blocks, hoping the final result is beautiful and meaningful, and you look around at others' structures learning from them and sometimes envying or criticizing them. That's one philosophical way of introducing this new watch face by Tha PHLASH, Timecraft.

Like its name and all of the screenshots here suggest, Timecraft is inspired by Minecraft.

Die aktuelle Ratio von 0,0348 ist fast wieder auf dem Niveau des Jahres 2001 angelangt.
          Точная дата выхода и бонусы за предзаказ StarCraft: Remastered   
Blizzard Entertainment наконец-то решила, когда же выпустить «сделанную с любовью модернизацию» популярной научно-фантастической стратегии в реальном времени StarCraft: Remastered.

Игра, полностью локализованная на тринадцать языков (включая русский), стартует на PC с 14 августа 2017-го года. Хотя самые нетерпеливые, разумеется, могут потратить пятнадцать долларов США и оформить предварительную покупку в онлайн-магазине Blizzard прямо сейчас и получить за это несколько подарков.

В частности, за приобретение StarCraft: Remastered до 14 августа разработчики обещают презентовать три уникальных скина для зданий Char Hive, Korhal Command Center и Aiur Nexus. Плюс вам на халяву достанутся цифровые бонусы для StarCraft II, включая кооперативные миссии с Алексеем Стуковым и три уникальных портрета, восславляющих переиздание оригинальной Starcraft.

Blizzard подчёркивает, что, несмотря на ряд усовершенствований, геймплей StarCraft: Remastered остался неизменным. А обновлённая версия полностью совместима с оригиналом, и это значит, что её обладатели смогут спокойно играть с пользователями Starcraft и StarCraft: Brood War двадцатилетней давности.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1BzNM2pyzW8

Что же касается непосредственно изменений, то девелоперы относят к ним:

● Полное улучшение графики оригинальной Starcraft и дополнения StarCraft: Brood War;
● Поддержку широкоэкранных мониторов сверхвысокой чёткости с разрешением вплоть до 4K;
● Новую систему организации матчей и новые списки лидеров;
● Профили игроков, в которых отслеживается индивидуальная статистика;
● Облачные сохранения прогресса в кампании, горячих клавиш и реплеев;
● Музыкальное сопровождение и звук более высокого качества;
● Переключение между StarCraft: Remastered и оригинальной Starcraft нажатием одной кнопки.

          The only acceptable browser for Android: Yandex   
Since I upgraded my Nexus 6 to the latest OS 7.1.1, I have been searching for a browser that does these two simple things:

1) Text wrapping (text-reflow, auto-fit)
2) Remember passwords

Without text wrapping, I don't know how anybody could read anything on the phone's small screen. As for password-remember, it is virtually impossible for anyone to type in passwords over and over again on the phone's tiny keyboard.


Yandex and Opera are the only two can do these two simple things, believe it or not. I didn't try FireFox and Chrome though, because they suck, they use too much resources and run phone hot. I pick Yandex over Opera, because it is quite a hassle to use tabs with Opera and it sometimes drains battery while phone is idling.


Yandex has some very thoughtful features too. For example, address bar is at the bottom, as you see in above first photo. It is auto-hidden, and, the best part, I only need to move the page down just a little bit to let it appear. Because it is based on the same source code of Chrome, so all Chrome and Opera extensions work with Yandex! I use the Autofill extension to remember the few passwords that Yandex won't. Yes, all, I mean ALL, passwords can be remembered! So this Yandex really works for everything you do on a desktop computer! You can even block Youtube ads with one of such extensions!


I cannot say enough how great Yandex is. I do have one complaint: cannot disable the stupid preview mode; so have to double touch for each and every site. Apple invented two great things that ruined user experience on every smartphone: one is swipe to answer a call and the other is this preview mode.

The followings are the ones I tried but could not do at least one of the above two simple things:

Boat
Dolphin
Next
Naked
Via
UC (text is often messily formatted)
Maxthon
Flynx
Ghostery
Lightning

There might be even more, but I can no longer remember.

PS: There are few sites that Autofill cannot automatically add their username and password. "reg.usps.com" is one of them, but can be easily added manually:


          A must do for Chinese apps   
Yesterday I was in CostCo and my Nexus 6 ran quite warmly. It was the Moli TV doing something in the ground. I opened the Swiss knife - Tasker, added the following profile and task to kill it whenever it is in the background.

New profile, Application, 魔力视频,  link to it a new task:

Code, run shell, am force-stop com.molitv.android.v2, use root.

Now go back to the profile, add to it an exit task, link it to this new task as well and unlink the enter task.



From now on, I can still open this app and use it normally to watch TV, it just won't have a chance to run in the back ground.

I did the same for TV Plus. Those are pretty much the only two Chinese apps I use that have no reason to run in the background.
          The Great Derangement - The History and Politics of the near Absent Focus on Cli-Fi in Literature   
Photo credit HERE
Reader Beware! This is not a review, but my thoughts on Amitav Ghosh’s latest book launched only recently, The Great Derangement: Climate Change And The Unthinkable,  which ends the drought, as Tabish Khair says in his review, after Ghosh’s extraordinary non-fiction, ‘In an Antique Land’


“On the afternoon of 17 March, 1978, the weather took an odd turn. I was studying MA at Delhi University while working part-time journalist…Glancing above my shoulder I saw a grey, tube – like extension forming on the underside of a dark cloud; it grew rapidly as I watched, and then all of a sudden it turned and came whiplashing down to earth…The noise quickly rose to a frenzied pitch, and the wind began to tug fiercely at my clothes…I saw to my astonishment that my surroundings had been darkened by churning cloud of dust…I saw an extraordinary panoply of objects flying past – bicycles, scooters, lampposts, sheets of corrugated iron, even tea stalls…Buses lay overturned, scooters sat on treetops, walls had been ripped out of buildings…” Amitav Ghosh in The Great Derangement: Climate Change And The Unthinkable

The passage cited above, experienced by him in 1978, could have made Amitav Ghosh, write a novel, where the main protagonist was going through what he experienced, which undoubtedly can be quoted as a tornado, as a result of climate change. But, in The Great Derangement, Amitav Ghosh, laments the sheer dearth of fiction in the genre of what we call Cli-Fi, meaning fiction on Climate Change. While there is non-fiction material available on the subject, and discussions across nations on this subject, there is very little among fiction writers, including himself who have been able to situate their stories in the midst of extreme devastation that is the nature of storms, tornadoes, tsunami, floods, excessive rains, absolute drought, etc etc, all arising out of climate change. His one serious engagement was in The Hungry Tide, the excerpt being available HERE. 

In the recently launched and latest book by Amitav Ghosh, The Great Derangement: Climate Change And The Unthinkable, Ghosh, mines deeply into literature from the present and the past to establish that not only is there very little literature in fiction on this subject, but also, how climate change cannot be looked at honestly without looking in depth on ‘empire and imperialism’ and of course politics.

It is the thirst for wealth that made European countries like England, France, Portugal expand their empire across the globe. They built harbours and cities close to the sea in order to continue their trade across nations. The wealthy businessman affected the politics of the land and indeed imperialism is key to climate change, as cities were built too close to rivers thus making them, open to the ‘uncanny, improbable’ weather, we now experience as climate change. As wealthy sections of people formed the government, we know that politics and policies are so made that they continue to protect industry even in the face of hugely catastrophic affects on people and ecosystems. It is this ‘unholy nexus’ that is for centuries engaged and involved in keeping the status quo even though in global conferences, the catch word is to arrest climate change. However, this responsibility is always on ‘the other’.

The book is an excellent read for academics and people interested in Climate Change and environment. To me it read more like a paper on Climate Change citing history and politics of it all. The beginning might have been an addition at a later stage, which brings focus on the dire need for more fiction on Cli-Fi.

The book however does not put light on the fast vanishing keystonespecies like wolves, beavers and the like, who help to preserve the environment.

          Scaling the Elastic Stack in a Microservices Architecture @ Rightmove   

Introduction

Rightmove is the UK's #1 Property Portal. In the process of helping people find the places they want to live, we serve 55 million requests a day and use Elasticsearch to power our searches and provide our teams with useful analytics to help support our applications.

Since 2014, we have been moving over to a microservices architecture. Microservices means more application instances — which in turn means a lot more logs. The old ways of SSHing onto a server and using grep, awk, and sed to diagnose failures was already a pain when we had 90 plus servers to handle, so it was obvious to us that we needed something to pull all our logs together in one place.

Fast forward to 2017 and we have over 50 microservices all sending their logs to our Elasticsearch cluster. In doing so, we needed a way to scale our configuration on both the hardware and application side of things. So how did we achieve this and what did we learn along the way?

Rightmove's Search for a Better Search

In 2014, we were faced with a problem when our existing search engine technology was having issues scaling to fit the needs of our ever growing user base. We decided at that point it was a good time to explore our options and we lined up the contenders to see which one would be the best fit in terms of scalability, performance and features. Elasticsearch quickly rose to the top as not only did it perform around 10 times faster than our old search engine on average, but it also seemed to be very easy to work with and easier for our developers to learn.

The chance to overhaul our search was also one of the things that led us to think about splitting out our old monolithic web applications into a microservices architecture. Since then, we've begun the journey of moving other search-based features (like our sold prices and property email alerts) as well as our customer based reporting and request anomaly detection to Elasticsearch. We have also been able to consider new property search features that would have been much harder to release in our old search technology.

Once we had these microservices and Elasticsearch in our estate, the success of an internal Hackathon led us to the Elastic Stack as a means of pulling in all our application metrics and logs — which has since greatly improved the productivity of our teams when measuring the success of feature releases and debugging and fixing application issues.

Our Elastic Stack Setup

image1.png

We split our configuration into 3 parts:

  • Application side: this is the same for all applications and is repeated on each server that hosts an instance of our application. We also ensure any heavy Logstash parsing is done on this side as this utilizes the distributed power of our application servers rather than causing a processing bottleneck on the publisher Logstash instances.
  • Redis cluster for queueing: any queue will do but we use Redis to allow us to buffer the load on Elasticsearch which prevents us losing data due to Bulk rejections.
  • Publisher side: this section represents the configuration we use to marshal data from our queue into Elasticsearch. We try to keep Logstash processing to a minimum here.

Installing and Configuring the Elastic Stack

Here are a few things to consider when configuring the Elastic Stack:

  • Choose a good configuration management tool. We use Puppet, but any configuration management tool like Chef, Ansible, Salt, etc., will help you scale your cluster deployment and configuration:

Configuring Logstash

When configuring Logstash to help scaling, we do the following:

  • Keep logs consistent across applications by using common logging code. We use an in-house library that allows us to log in the same JSON format across all microservices that use it. This allows us to ingest logs in the same way regardless of the service and support custom key-value metadata and tags to enrich our data in the same way.
  • Use correlation IDs in logs to help track log entries across service boundaries.
  • Use templates to create Logstash configuration. We store templates for each log type in source-control then populate these with application and environment specific properties by finding and replacing escaped tokens e.g.
input {    
  file {
    path => "${microservice_logs_path}app.log"        
    type => "${index_prefix}app_log"
    codec => json {
      charset => "ISO-8859-1"        
  }
}
  • Use deployment pipelines. We use Jenkins to build our configuration as deployable tar files that are stored in Nexus and deployed to each environment by developers at the push of a button in their Jenkins pipelines. This allows us to roll out test configuration to staging and test it there before rolling it out to production.
  • Provide a development environment for your developers that mirrors your deployed Elastic Stack. We use Docker compose to simulate our Elastic Stack setup. You can find out how you can set-up a similar setup here: https://www.elastic.co/guide/en/elasticsearch/reference/current/docker.html

image4.png 

How we use our data

The data collected from our logs is used for various purposes. We use a combination of Kibana, monitoring features, and alerting features with our data as well as some custom UI tools we've built on top of the Elastic Stack in house to help monitor applications.

Knowledge Sharing & Internal Advocacy

We learned early on that it's not enough to build the tools for your teams; you also need to educate and sell your teams on why they should want to use them. We did this by hosting events like internal workshops where we taught developers and business folks alike how to use Kibana to create visualizations. Adopting an opt-in approach means that anyone who is interested can learn, and often this allowed business and support team members to get a better idea of how to ask for the data they wanted from the application developers. Attending the official Elastic training, the meetups organised in our area for Elasticsearch and Elastic{ON} events were a big part of what gave our devs confidence to spread the knowledge and help others use the Elastic Stack.

It may sound obvious, but it's also a good idea to be a good example for others. Think about supporting teams with semi-regular monitoring reviews to help them know where they can get data on things they care about and how they can use it. Share graphs and discover tab results from Kibana when production issues occur to help show others how you found a problem and how they could too! Evangelise as much as you can. You'll find that the effort will pay off and you will have an Elastic Stack that people will want to use.

Business outcomes

Overall the introduction of the Elastic Stack to our development teams has been transformative. Problems that would have taken developers days to investigate manually are now simple queries in Kibana. Determining correlations between systems that misbehave is easier to check and investigate. Through recording deployments in Elasticsearch and combining with data from our source control systems we are able to show teams what they have released to date and what they would release if they sent out their microservice to production today. Through monitoring traffic and load on our systems we can more accurately predict the need to scale our services. The X-Pack alerting feature will provide us with a self-service platform for our application alerts that allow teams to set up simple threshold based alerts more easily.

Also it's not just our developers that benefit, our support teams can now look up errors and anomalies in systems behaviour via Kibana. This helps spread the load and empowers them to make informed requests of the development teams to allow them to have the right support conversations with some of our customers. Overall the Elastic Stack saves us time and is helping us grow our systems whilst still allowing us to see to their health and, ultimately, address the needs of our users.

          Comment on Review: ‘Star Trek: Department Of Temporal Investigations: Shield Of The Gods’ e-Novella by Phil   
We'll probably have to agree to disagree at some point, and I'm happy you enjoy them. Since the Guardian was discovered, we've learned in the Trek universe you can time travel by slingshoting around a star, building time portals, tweaking power signatures through transporter enhancers, the previously mentioned chronometric particles, and by flying through an apparently badly guarded natural portal, the Nexus. Seems to me there aren't nearly enough DTI agents to investigate temporal travel, when it seems just about everyone has access to it.

          The 15 Most Ridiculous Things That Media Figures Said About Environmental Issues in 2016   
Climate denialism. Conspiracy theories. Trump apologism. This year had a little bit of everything.

Donald Trump and the presidential election dominated news coverage in 2016. But talking heads still found plenty of time to make jaw-dropping comments about climate change, energy, and the environment. This year’s list of ridiculous claims includes a dangerous conspiracy theory about Hurricane Matthew, over-the-top worship of fracking and coal, and absurd victim-blaming around the Flint water crisis. Here is our list of the 15 most ridiculous things that media figures said about climate, energy, and environmental issues in 2016.

1. Rush Limbaugh And Matt Drudge Peddled A Reckless Conspiracy Theory Downplaying The Threat From Hurricane Matthew. Shortly before Hurricane Matthew made landfall in the U.S., Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge concocted a conspiracy theory that the federal government was overstating the hurricane’s severity in order to manufacture concern about climate change. On The Rush Limbaugh Show, Limbaugh accused the National Hurricane Center of "playing games" with hurricane forecasting and added, “It's in the interest of the left to have destructive hurricanes because then they can blame it on climate change, which they can desperately continue trying to sell.”

Limbaugh doubled down on this theory the next day, telling his audience, “There’s politics in the forecasting of hurricanes because there are votes.”

Drudge, the curator of the widely read Drudge Report website, promoted the conspiracy as well, suggesting that federal officials were exaggerating the danger posed by Hurricane Matthew “to make [an] exaggerated point on climate.”

[Twitter, 10/6/16]

[Twitter, 10/6/16]

Drudge also used his website to persuade Southeast residents not to take the storm seriously, with a banner “STORM FIZZLE? MATTHEW LOOKS RAGGED!” and additional headlines “IT’S A 4?” and “RESIDENTS NOT TAKING SERIOUSLY...”.

Climate scientist Michael Mann explained that people "could die because of the misinformation that folks like Rush Limbaugh and Matt Drudge are putting out there," and two actual hurricane experts provided a point-by-point rebuttal of Drudge’s claims. But that did nothing to dissuade Drudge, who refused to give up on the conspiracy theory.

2. Fox News Blamed The Flint Water Crisis On Climate Change Policies, "PC Stuff,” And Even Flint Residents Themselves. National media outlets largely ignored the water crisis in Flint, MI, as it unfolded over almost two years, but when the story did finally make national headlines, Fox News pundits were quick to pin the blame on anyone and anything other than the Republican governor of Michigan.

On Fox & Friends, host Heather Nauert and guest Mark Aesch suggested that “misplaced priorities,” including climate change and “PC stuff,” allowed the water crisis to happen:

And on The Kelly File, Fox News digital politics editor Chris Stirewalt placed blame on Flint residents themselves, saying that the "people of Flint should have been protesting in the streets" after noticing that their water was poisoned. Stirewalt also blamed Flint parents for giving their children contaminated water, declaring: "If you were pouring water into a cup for your child and it stunk and it smelled like sulfur and it was rotten, would you give that to your child? No, you'd revolt, you'd march in the street." In addition to being offensive, Stirewalt’s comments were premised on a falsehood; Flint residents did in fact repeatedly protest throughout the year to demand safe drinking water for their families.

3. CNN’s Alisyn Camerota Claimed Trump EPA Nominee Scott Pruitt “Hasn’t Denied Global Warming.” Oklahoma Attorney General Scott Pruitt, President-elect Donald Trump’s choice to head the Environmental Protection Agency, is a climate science denier who has refused to accept the clear consensus of the scientific community that human activities such as burning fossil fuels are primarily responsible for global warming. Yet according to CNN New Day anchor Alisyn Camerota, Pruitt simply “sees nuance” and “hasn’t denied global warming.” Camerota falsely claimed that Pruitt only disputes climate “predictions” and “forecasts,” when in fact he has also denied that global warming is human-caused, and even Camerota's premise that climate models are unreliable is incorrect. As Camerota wrongly absolved Pruitt of climate denial, CNN’s on-screen text read: “Climate Change Denier Scott Pruitt To Lead EPA.” Co-anchor Chris Cuomo also pushed back on Camerota, stating that Pruitt “says it’s ‘far from settled.’ That means he’s not accepting the science.”

Camerota badly butchered climate science, but it's noteworthy she was even discussing the issue given CNN’s spotty track record. In April, a Media Matters analysis found that CNN aired almost five times as much oil industry advertising as climate change-related coverage in the one-week periods following the announcements that 2015 was the hottest year on record and February 2016 was the most abnormally hot month on record. And in one segment later in the year where CNN did cover climate change, CNN Newsroom host Carol Costello speculated, “Are we just talking about this and people's eyes are glazing over?”

4. MSNBC's Mike Barnicle: ExxonMobil CEO Rex Tillerson "Is A Huge Green Guy.” Trump’s nominee for secretary of state, Rex Tillerson, is the chairman and CEO of ExxonMobil, one of the world’s largest oil companies. Exxon is currently under investigation in several states for possibly violating state laws by deceiving shareholders and the public about climate change, while Tillerson himself has misinformed about climate science and mocked renewable energy. Yet according to Mike Barnicle, a regular on MSNBC’s Morning Joe, “Rex Tillerson is a huge green guy.” And alas, no, we don't think he was comparing Tillerson to the Jolly Green Giant or the Incredible Hulk.

5. Disregarding Everything Trump Has Said And Done On The Subject, MSNBC’s Joe Scarborough Claimed “I Just Know” Trump Believes In Climate Science. On Morning Joe, co-host Joe Scarborough defended Trump after it was announced he had selected Pruitt, a climate science denier, to lead the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). Scarborough -- who along with co-host Mika Brzezinski has repeatedly carried water for Trump -- insisted, “I just know” that Trump “has to believe” in climate science.

Scarborough’s comments followed a wave of TV coverage about how Trump had supposedly “reversed course” on climate change, which was based on a New York Times interview in which Trump said he has an “open mind” about the Paris climate agreement and that “there is some connectivity” between human activities and climate change. But few of these reports addressed any of the substantive reasons that such a reversal was highly unlikely, such as his transition team’s plan to abandon the Obama administration’s landmark climate policy, indications that he will dismantle NASA’s climate research program, and his appointment of fossil fuel industry allies as transition team advisers -- not to mention the full context of Trump’s remarks to the Times.

6. Trump Adviser Stephen Moore: Being Against Fracking “Is Like Being Against A Cure For Cancer.” While discussing his new book Fueling Freedom: Exposing the Mad War on Energy on C-SPAN2's Book TV, conservative economist and Trump economic adviser Stephen Moore stated that opposing fracking “is like being against a cure for cancer” because it is “one of the great seismic technological breakthroughs” that is “giving us huge amounts of energy at very low prices.” Never mind that many of the chemicals involved in fracking have actually been linked to cancer. 

7. Stephen Moore: “We Have The Cleanest Coal In The World.” Moore’s preposterous praise for fossil fuels wasn’t just confined to fracking. On Fox Business’ Varney & Co., he declared that the U.S. has “the cleanest coal in the world.” That statement is quite difficult to square with the fact that “Coal combustion contributes to four of the top five leading causes of death in the U.S.—heart disease, cancer, stroke, and chronic lower respiratory diseases—according to Physicians for Social Responsibility,” as Climate Nexus has noted.

Pro-coal propaganda also found a home on Fox Business’ sister network, Fox News, where The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld asserted that “coal is a moral substance. Where coal reaches, people live longer, happier lives.”

8. Breitbart’s James Delingpole: Climate Change Is “The Greatest-Ever Conspiracy Against The Taxpayer.” In an article promoting a speech he gave to the World Taxpayers’ Associations in Berlin, Breitbart’s James Delingpole wrote: “Climate change is the biggest scam in the history of the world – a $1.5 trillion-a-year conspiracy against the taxpayer, every cent, penny and centime of which ends in the pockets of the wrong kind of people.” In the speech itself, Delingpole similarly claimed that “the global warming industry” is “a fraud; a sham; a conspiracy against the taxpayer.”

Breitbart, which was until recent months run by Trump’s chief White House strategist Stephen Bannon, has frequently denied climate change and viciously attacked climate scientists. Delingpole, in particular, has described climate scientists as “talentless lowlifes” and referred to climate advocates as “eco Nazis,” “eco fascists,” and “scum-sucking slime balls.” Bannon has criticized Pope Francis for succumbing to “hysteria” about climate change; The Washington Post has written about how Bannon influenced Trump’s views on the issue during his time at Breitbart.

9. Fox Report On Law Gas Prices: “Put The Tesla In The Garage And Break Out The Hummer.” Just 10 days after Trump was elected president, Fox News began giving him credit for low gas prices, the latest proof of the network’s blatant double standard when it comes to covering gas prices under Republican and Democratic presidents. But simply shilling for Trump was apparently not enough for Fox Business reporter Jeff Flock, who provided the slanted gas prices report on Fox News’ America’s News Headquarters. At the conclusion of the reportFlock also displayed a brazen lack of concern about climate change, declaring: “I would say put the Tesla in the garage and break out the Hummer.”

10. Wall Street Journal’s Mary Kissel Instructed Viewers To “Trust” A Climate Science-Denying Fossil Fuel Front Group. In a video interview posted on The Wall Street Journal’s website, Journal editorial board member Mary Kissel instructed viewers who are “confused about the science surrounding climate change” to “trust” Rod Nichols, chairman of a climate science-denying fossil fuel front group known as the CO2 Coalition. During the interview, Nichols denied that human activities such as burning oil and coal are responsible for recent global warming, claiming that “climate change has been going on for hundreds of millions of years,” “there is not going to be any catastrophic climate change,” and “CO2 will be good for the world.” Kissel asked Nichols, “Why don't we hear more viewpoints like the ones that your coalition represents,” and concluded that the CO2 Coalition’s research papers are “terrific.”

The Wall Street Journal has made a habit of “trusting” climate science deniers like Nichols -- or at least repeating their false claims about climate science. A recent Media Matters analysis of climate-related opinion pieces found that the Journal far outpaced other major newspapers in climate science misinformation, publishing 31 opinion pieces that featured climate denial or other scientifically inaccurate claims about climate change over a year-and-a-half period.

11. Fox Host Clayton Morris: Rubio's Climate Science Denial At Presidential Debate Was An "Articulate Moment.” During a Fox News discussion of Florida Sen. Marco Rubio’s performance at a CNN presidential debate, Fox and Friends co-host Clayton Morris described Rubio’s claim that the climate is “always” changing -- a common talking point among climate science deniers -- as “a really articulate moment.” 

While Morris’ endorsement of Rubio’s climate denial as “articulate” is particularly striking, a 2015 Media Matters analysis found that media frequently failed to fact-check GOP presidential candidates’ climate change denial.

12. Fox Hosts Mocked Leonardo DiCaprio's Oscar Speech On Climate Change: "Focus On Something Else Other Than The Weather.” When actor Leonardo DiCaprio took home the Oscar for best actor for his role in The Revenant, the hosts of Fox News’ The Five and Fox and Friends mocked DiCaprio for devoting much of his acceptance speech to making the case for climate change action. On The Five, co-host Jesse Watters declared, “So the guy finally gets an Academy Award and he's talking about the weather. What's going on here?” Co-host Eric Bolling helpfully added, “Focus on something else other than the weather.”

That wasn’t the only time in 2016 that DiCaprio was caught in Fox News’ crosshairs for having the nerve to talk about climate change. Later in the year, The Five aired footage from an event in which President Obama criticized congressional climate deniers and DiCaprio said, “The scientific consensus is in, and the argument is now over. If you do not believe in climate change, you do not believe in facts, or in science, or empirical truths, and therefore in my humble opinion should not be allowed to hold public office.” The Five co-host Greg Gutfeld then responded by likening criticism of climate science deniers to religious extremism, saying: “You have to wonder about a belief system that doesn't want any challenges, that doesn't want any of their theories to be questioned. This -- what he is talking about is radical Islam of science. He is actually turning science into a religion.”

13. Fox’s Meghan McCain: "The Liberal Hysteria Over Climate Change Was So Overblown That Now People Have A Hard Time Even Believing It.” Rather than criticize conservatives or Republicans who frequently deny climate science, Fox News host Meghan Mccain blamed liberals for public confusion about climate change, declaring on Fox News' Outnumbered that “the liberal hysteria over climate change was so overblown that now people have a hard time even believing it and believing that it's something that's justified.” McCain, who also mocked Democratic presidential nominee Hillary Clinton for campaigning on the issue with Al Gore, added, “I do think there are signs we should look at, but if Al Gore, if you take his word for it, there's a big flood that's going to come in and wipe us all away in five minutes.”

McCain is the daughter of Sen. John McCain (R-AZ), who notoriously flip-flopped on climate change legislation in 2009, undercutting congressional efforts to address the issue.

14. Fox’s Steve Doocy: Obama’s Monument Designation Was Done To “Appease Environmental Terrorists.” On Fox & Friends, co-host Steve Doocy declared that President Obama’s designation of the first marine monument in the Atlantic Ocean was “done to appease environmental terrorists.” Not so shockingly, Doocy and his co-hosts did not comment when their guest, Deadliest Catch’s Keith Colburn, acknowledged that "increased water temperatures" from climate change are impacting fisheries across the United States.

15. Fox Hosts Flipped Out About Portland Public Schools Decision To Stop Teaching Climate Denial To Children. In May, the Portland Public Schools board unanimously approved a resolution “aimed at eliminating doubt of climate change and its causes in schools.” But while climate science denial may no longer be taught in Portland public schools, it still has a place on Fox News, as the hosts of Outnumbered demonstrated in their flippant response to the resolution.

Co-host Lisa Kennedy Montgomery said the Portland schools decision is “so anti-scientific,” adding, “There are still scientists, believe it or not, out there who say, ‘No, we still have to look at the data.’ And it's impossible to predict how the climate is going to change over hundreds or thousands of years.” Co-host Jesse Waters remarked, “So getting out of the ice age, how did the Earth warm up after the ice age? There were no humans there with cars and factories.” He also stated, “It gets hot, it gets cold, this spring has been freezing. It's not getting warmer, it seems like it's getting colder. Am I wrong?”

But Fox News pundits aren’t just defenders of teaching climate science denial; they’re also partially to blame for it, according to researchers at Southern Methodist University (SMU). Last year, the SMU researchers released a study that found some children's textbooks that depict the reality of human-caused climate change with uncertainty are influenced by a climate science knowledge gap that finds its roots partly in conservative media misinformation. In particular, the SMU researchers pointed to previous research that showed Fox has disproportionately interviewed climate science deniers and that its viewers are more likely to be climate science deniers themselves.

          SGN exclusive interview: Seattle mayoral candidate Jessyn Farrell   
by Mike Andrew - SGN Staff Writer Jessyn Farrell is staking a lot on her run for mayor of Seattle. To run without the fundraising limits imposed by state law, she resigned from a safe state House seat she's held for three terms. Farrell represented the 46th Legislative District - including Kenmore, Lake Forest Park, and parts of North Seattle - and while she's not so well known in other areas of the city, she's counting on the votes of those who know her best to get her into the November general election. Farrell tells the SGN she sees 'a real nexus with LGBT issues and all the major issues facing the city.' 'Affordability,' she cites as one example.

          業界內幕:重創遊戲實況主的假金援   
實況主是當前的新行業,藉由提供遊戲實況與互動性,換取觀眾的支持與金援。然而最近有越來越多的實況主指出,少數觀眾會假裝金援,實際上卻一毛不拔,這種行為不僅形同欺騙,還會造成各種實質傷害,對實況主造成嚴重困擾。

想像一下,你在街頭進行表演,某位觀眾遞上鈔票,卻在你伸出手的前一刻把錢抽回去,你會做何感想?這就是所謂的假金援。實況界也有假金援的存在,每一位實況主都有可能收到假金援,而且最近幾年來,假金援有越來越多的趨勢。

稍早之前,職業實況主暨任天堂社群名人的戴斯蒙.”Etika”.艾摩法在YouTube上對觀眾抱怨說,他又被假金援擺了一道。「那個爛貨他○的捉弄我,他○的拿走我的錢,他○的毀了我的生活!」艾摩法在影片中激烈地表態,看得出他對假金援有多麼反感。

▲實況主艾摩法非常痛恨假金援。

事情發生在稍早之前,艾摩法在他的Twitch實況中收到5筆金援,金額皆是50美金或100美金,讓他喜不自勝。可是一陣子之後,艾摩法檢視他的PayPal帳戶後赫然發現,當初收到的5筆金援居然變成爭議款項。那位觀眾事後要求收回當初送出的金援,而他也確實把錢收了回去。更讓艾摩法感到生氣的是:上百美金的退款手續費必須由他買單。

「對於我自己與許多網路創作者而言,假金援無疑是致命的困擾。」艾摩法悻悻然表示,「我們的生活必須倚靠PayPal,假金援卻他○的搞爛了我們的生活!」

▲金援實況主前請三思,別讓美意變成惡意。

所謂的退款,就是要求信用卡公司退還先前支付的款項。實況主經常利用PayPal帳戶來管理財務,還得不斷應付與日俱增的退款與假金援,令他們疲於奔命。懷著惡意的觀眾甚至將假金援當成武器,用來捉弄他們看不順眼的實況主。

或許是觀眾想要利用金援來鼓勵實況主,卻沒有能力支付這些錢;或許是少數不肖份子想要找麻煩,害實況主必須花錢消災。無論實情為何,這些假金援都已經對實況主造成實質上的困擾。絕大多數的實況主選擇讓觀眾退款,任憑對方取回當初承諾的巨額金援,至於剩下的失望、憤怒,以及高昂的PayPal帳戶退款手續費,都得由實況主自行吸收。

▲PayPal是實況主接受金援的主要管道。

PayPal之所以同意用戶退款,是為了保護用戶不受詐騙。舉例來說,小偷可能盜刷偷來的信用卡,讓原本的卡主蒙受鉅額損失。然而只要卡主能夠舉證,讓信用卡公司相信卡片的確被盜刷,卡主就有權利拒絕支付盜刷的款項。

2016年,一位暱稱是iNexus_Ninja的18歲觀眾慷慨解囊,金援將近50000美金給喜歡的實況主們,光是實況主LegendaryLea就分到11500美金。當LegendaryLea看見這麼大的金額入帳後,忍不住繞著房間手舞足蹈。

▲LegendaryLea曾經收到5位數的金援。

▲這位仁兄就是iNexus_Ninja,金援實況主的好人(?)。

後來iNexus_Ninja才坦承,他其實是偷拿雙親的信用卡來金援實況主。iNexus_Ninja希望收回這些金援,而這個舉動將導致受他金援的實況主們狂噴數千美金,對他們造成極大的傷害。信用卡公司最後拒絕了iNexus_Ninja的要求,這個決定並不令人意外。

 

(後面還有:假金援導致帳戶凍結與信用受損)

▲實況主Kaceytron同樣受到假金援的困擾。

另一位知名實況主Kaceytron同樣面臨假金援的問題。她每個月平均收到半打左右的假金援,這些假金援通常是小額款項。2013年,在Kaceytron剛出道的那一陣子裡,她偶爾會收到超過1000美金的金援,不過這些金援很快就被收了回去,害她空歡喜一場。

「有一次我很倒楣,短期間內接連收到假金援,害我的PayPal帳戶被銀行凍結。」Kaceytron回憶道,「在帳戶凍結的兩三個星期裡,我無法收到觀眾的任何金援,這讓我感覺糟糕透頂。」

▲帳戶被凍結是非常嚴重的問題。

帳戶凍結還不是最糟糕的情況。如果觀眾要求退款,實況主的PayPal帳戶卻沒有留下足夠的錢,帳戶餘額就會變成負值,實況主事後不僅得支付罰金,還可能面臨信用受損的嚴重後果。信用受損如同留下前科,將影響當事人未來所有的信用活動,如貸款或租房子。Kaceytron指出,她總是習慣讓帳戶金額保持平衡,不至於沒錢可退,可是她偶爾還是會擔心惹上惱人的麻煩。

今年4月,艾摩法在Twitch實況時,收到某位觀眾的200美金。「請放心,我不會要求退款。」那位觀眾俏皮地說。或許那位觀眾只是想表達幽默感,可是艾摩法並不覺得好笑。艾摩法立刻中斷實況,藉此表達他對退款議題的強烈不滿。後來艾摩法利用實況的機會,向觀眾解釋退款是多麼糟糕的一件事。

▲實況主收到100萬歐元的金援,一看就知道是假的。

「當你擁有一個小小的實況頻道,好死不死遇到觀眾退款,又沒有像我這樣迅速做出正確判斷,PayPal就會凍結你的帳戶。」艾摩法說,「事情還沒完喔,一旦銀行拿不到該退的錢或罰金,就會追蹤你在其他銀行的帳戶,或是將這筆帳記在你的PayPal信用卡貸款欄內,讓你吃不完兜著走。」

Twitch曾經打算管理假金援的亂象,可是PayPal是第三方工具,不在Twitch的管轄範圍內,最後只能不了了之,至於PayPal則是拒絕回應任何關於假金援與觀眾退款的問題。

▲實況主經常被假金援弄得心煩意亂。

「我們不會評論PayPal的運作。」當談到PayPal的時候,Twitch的客服經理,艾隆.凱利的答覆相當保守,「我們所做的,就是開發一套整合PayPal支付的行動應用程式。」

艾摩法回憶道,他當初碰到觀眾退款的時候,與PayPal的服務專員講了好幾個小時的電話,告訴對方觀眾退款將嚴重影響實況主,也就是他本人的生計。艾摩法相信PayPal現在站在他這邊,願意幫助他拒絕惡意的退款。

▲得到金援不代表可以拿到錢。

「假如實況主沒有經常檢查PayPal帳戶,就可能惹上大麻煩。」艾摩法說,「許多實況主被觀眾退款搞得焦頭爛額,必須花費一番功夫連絡PayPal,還得想辦法說服對方自己才是受害者。無論退款金額是大是小,我們都得努力向PayPal解釋,聽起來很糟,然而這卻是我們唯一能夠做的事。」

          Comment on Star Trek: Generations by Thomas Beesley   
Mind blower: Picard going back with Kirk would have created a time paradox because if he prevented Soran from detonating the star, he would have never gone into the Nexus in the first place, thus never meeting Kirk to stop Soran. Since time has no meaning in the Nexus, this is a trivial matter. Conclusion: Picard never left the Nexus... he can't. The entire crew of the Enterprise and all the inhabitants on the nearby planet died. All subsequent Star Trek movies with the Next Generation crew are Picard living out a fantasy inside the Nexus where he believes all of his friends and crew are still alive because he went back to prevent himself from going inside of it in the first place.

Is creativity a form of shamanic communion with forces beyond our ordinary experience? Are there certain individuals who are able to tap into the deepest recesses of consciousness where the gods are waiting? Does visionary experience allow one to see traces of reality unbound by time and space?
There are the questions that lie at the heart of my own work and have led me to obsess further on an already long-standing obsession- the American godfather of the modern superhero, Jack Kirby.

Kirby was obsessed with many of the questions non-traditional thinkers are struggling with today, but may have had access to answers we do not.
In particular, there is a strange episode in his career in which Kirby seemed to foresee events long after his death, events which may well be linked to the Stargate- that portal between our world and the world of otherworldly entities the ancients saw as "gods."
These posts were originally written in January of '08. Some ideas I explore here have been discarded, some have evolved. But it all revolves around the idea of creativity as a shamanistic pursuit and how dreamwork and psychedelic experience are intimately related to this process.

I covered a lot of this material at Esalen, but I think you psychonauts out there might have a more immediate appreciation at the possibilities raised by Kirby's creative encounter with the Gate of the Gods...


Again, drawn 17 years before the Viking missions...


Silver Star, part 2: Down the Rabbit Hole

(Note: Read part 1 of this series here)

Kirby's 80's work may be generally overlooked, but that's not to say it isn't influential. I detail the numerous parallels between Captain Victory and James Cameron's Aliens in Spandex. And what is easily the nadir of Kirby's artistry, Super Powers, was in many ways DC's practice run for event books like Crisis on Infinite Earths and Cosmic Odyssey.

But let's look further into this strange, precognitive nexus between Silver Star and Destroyer Duck. So many of the thematic strands that we now see bubbling up from the conspiracy underground seem to hover around these books like a Lovecraftian spectre. It seems that nearly every major theme discussed in the more speculative branches of conspiracy research finds a synchronistic antecedent in three obscure Jack Kirby comic books. Granted, Kirby's work shows that he seemed to be very much immersed in the same themes that you see on conspiracy, UFO and high weirdness websites. But I'm not sure if that explains the...

9/11 PRECOGNITION

9/11 was like gasoline on the smoldering coals of internet conspiracy research, which had been whipped up by Behold a Pale Horse, Art Bell and the"Patriot" movement in the 1990's. The image above was taken from Destroyer Duck #5, published by Eclipse Comics in 1983. It's important to note that Kirby didn't write this story, Howard the Duck creator Steve Gerber did. But it may well be what inspired Kirby to completely rewrite the end of Silver Star.

In DD#5, we see the set up for the unsettingly prescient 9/11-like scenario in this story. The CEO of "Godcorp" readies a 'suitcase nuke' (that favorite bugaboo of the neoconservative Right) to celebrate the signing of a oil drilling franchise in Hoqoom, an Mesopotamian theocracy based on Iran. The conflicts and tensions that played themselves on 9/11 are presented here in reverse, with the Islamic radicals suffering what becomes a (inadvertent) suicide attack at the hands of American plutocrats. The satirical "Pahkmani the Devourer" (yes, a Pac-Man parody) and the fundamentalists of Hoqoom find their counterparts in Darius Drumm and the Foundation for Self Denial in Silver Star.

THE NEPHILIM

One popular school of thought in the conspiracy underground is derived from a dyspeptic reinterpretation of the theories of writers like Zechariah Sitchin and Erich Von Daniken. It holds that human race is secretly manipulated and unconsciously enslaved by a cabal of evil extraterrestrials, who created homo sapiens as a slave race using their own alien DNA and the DNA of proto-hominids.

Sitchin was inspired by Biblical stories of the Nephilim, which are the offspring of human women and a race of "giants," whom he came to see as extraterrestrials. Kirby himself subscribed to these theories, which formed the basis of his 1976 Marvel series, The Eternals. Best-sellers like The Gods of Eden by William Bramley and Rule By Secrecy by Jim Marrs would later combine Sitchin's ancient astronaut theories with the occult conspiracy interpretation of history put forth by writers like Michael Howard.

Another popular strain in conspiracy research is drawn from James Shelby Downard's symbological interpretation of events like the Kennedy assassination. Downard collated details like place names and other geographical details to concoct an elaborate thesis that Freemasons were manipulating world events as part of a grand ritual to reorder the cosmos itself.

When I first read of Downard's theories I was deeply immersed in Jung and was astonished that this character seemed completely oblivious of the theory of Synchronicity. The types of conjunctions and correspondences Downard wrote about seemed par for the course for any neophyte Jungian. Downard's research isn't even all that impressive- others have come along and done it much better. An entire new school of thought has sprung up around a new synthesis of Jung and some of the post-Downard researchers - it's known as "Synchromysticism."

REPTILIANS

Concurrently, researchers like former BBC personality David Icke have recombined Bramley's and Downard's interpretations and taken them to the next level, claiming that the ruling elites of the world are devil-worshipping, shape-shifting alien reptiles who use symbolism as form of mind control-cum-witchcraft. In this view, popular media is a minefield of symbolic spells, created to manipulate the primitive human mind (which come to think of it, probably isn't that far from the truth...)

Which brings me to the backup story in Destroyer Duck #5...


Where the main story explored the theocratic and petropolitical motivations behind a 9/11 type event, Destroyer Duck #5's backup feature The Starling (written by Superman creator Jerry Siegel) offers a comic book foreshadowing of Icke's UFO theorizing. In florid, erotically charged language Siegel describes the origin of his character, which are identical to the modern theories of the biblical Nephilim (or The X-Files, for that matter). In turn, this human-alien hybrid who links us symbolically back to Mesopotamia, via the writings of Sitchin.



The story is filled with the brutal emotionalism that made Siegel's Superman so compelling. In this scene, the sweet-faced teenage boy learns from his mother (now a best-selling novelist) that his father was a shape-shifting alien who seduced her to create this new child.


In another foreshadowing of Icke et al, that sweet-faced boy is himself a shape shifting reptilian.

Mind you, this was written by the creator of Superman, modern history's most iconic superhero.

MESOPOTAMIA AND MARDUK

Looking at the Starling in that scene with his mother, I'm struck by how much he resembles Kamandi, another similarly-clad, sweet-faced teenager from Jack Kirby's post-apocalyptic fever-dream from the 1970's.


The mystery deepens. Mirroring the later Destroyer Duck #5, Kirby wrote his own story of a suitcase nuke smuggled aboard in airplane. In Kamandi, The Last Boy on Earth# 30, Kamandi and his mutant companion Ben Boxer discover a long-dead terrorist on an airplane that had been commandeered by a UFO. The terrorist is clutching a suitcase nuke, en route to some grim destination before the 'Great Disaster,' the nebulous Apocalypse that is the basis of the Kamandi mythology.


Remarkably, we are symbolically brought back to Sitchin's Mesopotamia by the giant statue of Marduk on the cover of Kamandi #30 (story is titled "UFO: The Wildest Trip Ever"). The desert sands of Mesopotamia (or Hoqoom) were the cradle of civilization and now this alien-made "sand pit" becomes its grave. This cover is not altogether thematically dissimilar to the Sitchin cover above, either. (note: The Angel of Death in Silver Star also reduced the landscape to desert).

This also ties us back to Jerry Siegel, since Marduk was one of Superman's mythological antecedents. Again, was any of this conscious? I can't possibly see how.

THE STARGATE

As if all of this weren't enough, the terrorist, the suitcase nuke and the airliner are all drawn into a gigantic Stargate, or interdimensional portal, that opens in the sky above the sand dunes.


Kirby writes: "Where do UFO's come from? How do they get here? Maybe they don't travel through the vastness of space, maybe they just come through things like the Door." I'm sure both Freud and Crowley would appreciate the blatant symbolism on that image- a skyscraper entering a Stargate, though for different reasons. Jake Kotzke would appreciate it for another reason altogether from them.

So would Lynn Picknett and Clive Prince, whose landmark work The Stargate Conspiracy was published in America exactly one week before...

9/11, AGAIN


Since everything always ties back to The X-Files somehow, I am struck by how similar the image of the terrorist clutching the suitcase nuke in Kamandi is to this image of Max Fennig clutching a part of a highly radioactive alien generator to his chest in the episode "Max." Especially since both situations deal with an UFO taking control of a jetliner. I'm even more struck by the parallels between the plane crash in that XF episode and the contested fate of Flight 93. In the episode, the airliner Max is on is commandeered by a UFO and then shot down by a fighter jet. It crash-lands in rural, upstate New York, right next door to Pennsylvania.

I'm even more struck by the gematria encoded in the tail-fin of the Kamandi plane. 'N' and 'C' are the 14th and 3rd letters of the alphabet respectively, adding up to the mystical 17. G is the 7th- add the 2 and you have 9. And we already have the 11.

The two 9/11 airplanes- Flight 11 and Flight 175 struck the twin towers 17 minutes apart.

Kamandi
#30 hit the stands in March of 1975.


This story originally started as a short '2007 in Review' post. But everytime I look at it, another link comes to light. Next, we will see Kirby's prophecies of the Iraq War and the Big Brother of all Conspiracy Theories...


Silver Star, part 2: Move Over Nostradamus


Had the attacks in 2001 never happened, September 11 may have been best known as the day George Bush Sr. addressed the US Congress making his case for war against Iraq, who had invaded and occupied the oil duchy known as Kuwait. It was in this speech that the ominous phrase, "New World Order," became part of the common lexicon.
We stand today at a unique and extraordinary moment. The crisis in the Persian Gulf, as grave as it is, also offers a rare opportunity to move toward an historic period of cooperation. Out of these troubled times, our fifth objective -- a new world order -- can emerge: a new era -- freer from the threat of terror, stronger in the pursuit of justice, and more secure in the quest for peace. An era in which the nations of the world, East and West, North and South, can prosper and live in harmony. A hundred generations have searched for this elusive path to peace, while a thousand wars raged across the span of human endeavor. Today that new world is struggling to be born, a world quite different from the one we've known. A world where the rule of law supplants the rule of the jungle. A world in which nations recognize the shared responsibility for freedom and justice.


That New World Order, where a centralized global authority keeps the peace, was presented to us by Jack Kirby in living color in his incredibly prescient 1974 series, OMAC. And then some.

OMAC prophesied a technocratic utopia lorded over by a sentient artificial intelligence named Brother Eye, who orbits the planet in satellite form. Keeping things calm were a literally faceless police force known as the Global Peace Agency. In this series, Kirby forecast Real Dolls, virtual reality, non-lethal weaponry, a kind of ramped-up organ harvesting, water wars and genetically engineered Beasts of the Apocalypse that would make DARPA drool.

Any conspiracy researcher or symbology buff worth their salt should be sitting up straight, seeing that blatant All-Seeing Eye imagery upon OMAC's chest. OMAC's mohawk haircut doesn't say "Punk Rock" (which didn't really exist then) so much as it says "New Roman Empire." Again, it's almost certain that Kirby came across the juxtaposition of occult symbolism and world government theorizing while reading conspiracy literature.

Now, scroll back up to the top of the page and look at the image the government of Kuwait used to symbolize the invasion of their country in 1990. And then look at the cover of OMAC#3, that portrays a very similar scenario- a strongman invading a neighboring country in defiance of the 'World Community.' Only in this case, A 'One Man Army' is there to defend the invaded country, not an...


In the next issue, the 'One Man Army' defeats the invading force and goes to arrest the commander of the invading army, Marshall Kafka, who is trapped in his bunker.

The bewildered look on the bearded, presumed-dead warrior's face as he is arrested by the One Man Army had a strange, real-life echo three decades later when the "Army of One" arrested another bearded, presumed-dead warrior in his underground bunker...


Here, take a closer look. Notice the mouth agape on both men...


Later, Kafka is put on trial for assorted crimes against humanity. Here he defiantly reviews the charges against him, which are essentially the same charges brought against Saddam.

Note the last charge is another way of saying "Weapons of Mass Destruction."

The full-page shot below is an uncanny foreshadowing. The hair is different- this is cartooning, not caricature - but the strong features (especially the eyes) are remarkably similar to Saddam. Especially considering Kirby's tendency towards abstraction. Or considering that millions of people predict the looming Apocalypse based on some incredibly vague old French poems...

The name "Kafka" is curious for Kirby, considering the aggressive militarism of the character. But it's worth noting that more than one commentator as referred to the trial, sentencing and execution of Saddam as something out of Kafka or 'Kafkaesque.'

Remembering we are dealing in the realm of symbol, it should be noted that Kafka's confidence during his trial is due to the oncoming attack of his bio-engineered killing machine. Symbolically, this plot-line is eerily similar to the ongoing insurrection the "Army of One" has faced in the days since Saddam's downfall.

Another Kirby cover seems like a political cartoon here, with the outmatched One Man Army facing a multi-pronged chimera appearing out of the ether, raining fire and death. Just write 'intifada' on the monster's chest and put a triangle around OMAC's chest eye and you're set. Note: The battle takes place on Mount Everest, lending an Theosophical tinge to this story.

So we have the very strong thematic links to September 11, 1990 with the New World Order themed OMAC and the synch-links to the Mesopotamian Wars. What ties this all into 9/11 and the Nephilim/Stargate links discussed in the past two installments? Well, in the DC Universe OMAC has a descendant, his name is...


THE MISSING LINKS

What is amazing in the context of Kirby's visionary abilities is that the Saddam story in OMAC and the Stargate/Marduk storyline in Kamandi came out at essentially the same time- OMAC was published in January of 1975 and Kamandi in March.
This means that Kirby was visualizing this Saddam character and the Stargate at the same point in time- which ties into the work of researchers like William Henry, who claim that the Iraq War was a pretext for this struggle over the Sumerian texts that Saddam was hording.

Amazing.



Following the Silver Star series, the Mindbomb series was a freeform meditation on the shamanic nature of the creative process and how dreams and visionary experiences fed into the process as well. The first post tied into Jake Kotze's links between Kirby's first cover upon returning to Captain America and the King Kong movie poster, which featured the Twin Towers. The first installment was titled "Stargate in the Sky"

As I mentioned before, Jake picked up the Kirby ball and took it to the semiotic endzone. Not having read the comics as of yet, he may not have been aware that the Madbomb, that infernal mind control weapon of the Anglophile Elite, was devised by the aptly-named Mason Harding.


Just prior the beginning of the Madbomb Saga, we have "Slaughter in the Sky," drawn by X-Files resonator Frank Robbins. Here we see Doctor Faustus kicking Cap out of a plane that is flying towards New York City.


Given the synchronistic currents surrounding Kirby, the presence of Doctor Faustus is fascinating, given the fact that the mad psychiatrist is obviously Kirby's parody of Carl Jung.


Given Kirby's voracious appetite for anything outre or esoteric, at some point he must have read up on Jung. This is evidenced by the fact that Jung was rumored to Goethe's illegitimate great-grandson and held the figure of Goethe's Faustus close to his heart all of his life, taking the character on as his "second personality."



Who else but Jung himself could initiate such a portentous avalanche of synchronicity and symbolism that marked the last stage of Kirby's career in comics? And his stand-in seems to have a special interest in aircraft and New York City, particularly lower Manhattan there, albeit in non-Kirby comics.


Following the various breadcrumb trails and the bizarre synergy lately between the Kirby-crazed Secret Sun and the Stargate-obsessed Blob, is anyone surprised that Kirby followed up the Madbomb Saga with an incredibly strange story of an interdimensional Stargate opening up in the sky over the Ground Zero resonating "Zero Street?" Or that the the first hero through it would be the Falcon, the 17-resonating Horus stand-in? Or that the story would involve a Texas oilman and yet another reclusive sect of mind-controlled Fundamentalist weirdos?



Reverberations


Through an quirk in scheduling, I've been spending a lot of my time delving back into the symbols. And it is having a powerful effect on my dreams, which have become extremely huge and vivid.

Last night I dreamed that an enormous, mile-wide UFO was trying to phase into this physical plane over the Tappan Zee bridge. The force of this action was destroying the bridge, very much like the Point Pleasant event. I was primarily concerned with how traffic would get across the river, which is 3 miles at that point. The water was littered with construction debris and floating cars. Vladimir Putin was there, witnessing the event and he and I discussed the arrogance of the UFO's inhabitants. But the UFO was phasing in and out of this dimensional reality. Finally, the UFO - still phasing - was brought down telepathically by a small, bald Asian man. It was like watching a building collapse in slow motion- it took forever. But the bridge was still gone.

I can name any number of items in my thoughtstream lately that played into this construction, but the power of the Unconscious mind takes those bits and pieces and creates something unforgettable of them. And in a few short seconds, I could find just the right images to quickly construct a collage of to illustrate the story.

My question is why is so much of popular culture so dead and empty? Because we as a culture are not dreaming anymore. Americulture is a speed freak; unable to sleep and unwilling to dream. As with all speed freaks, our public life is becoming a dreary, ugly, miserable hallucination.

We are the Night People


A pack of gluttonous, raccoon-eyed paranoids drunk on consumerism, Calvinism and overstimulation.

An expert diagnosis of Bush-era America? Well, that's a bit outside of the Secret Sun's province. Here, it's a description of Jack Kirby's "Night People," whom Captain America tangled with following the Madbomb Saga. Christmas is probably still fresh in your memory, so this montage should ring true....


Firmly ensconced in the endless ocean of the Dreaming Mind, Kirby foresaw the future of America and only got a few of the details wrong. The Night People have indeed come, only the Elite wasn't defeated and the Madbombs keep going off all the time.



Foreseeing the Bush Administration's policy of "Shock and Awe" or the constellation of control techniques Naomi Wolf catalogs in her book The Shock Doctrine, the Night People's Inquisitor turns the Horus-resonating Falcon and his lady into one of them using their sacrament, the "blessing" of electroshock treatment. In addition to the Egyptian stand-in superhero, we have Leila, whose name is Arabic for "night."


The Night People have their heaven, only it's not on Earth. It's in another dimension and they use their own homemade Stargate to move back and forth. The only problem is their dimension is the dwelling place of demons- their heaven is actually a Hell. Devising their own interpretation of the Rapture, the Night People concoct a plan to transport all of the demons through the Stargate to Earth, so their dimension can be Heaven once again and Armageddon will befall the fallen world they left behind.

This kind of prophecy must leave a semiotic trail to its fulfillment and here we get hit after hit.


You see, the Night People had their own Mega Ritual, transporting their asylum on Zero Street to another dimension, along with a healthy chunk of Manhattan's bedrock. Zero Street is now a fenced-in Ground Zero, its native soil replaced with alien atoms.




Which brings us to 2001. Two pages before Captain America enters the Stargate, we see this house ad for his adaption of 2001: A Space Odyssey, which draws our attention by using an early, superior cover layout. Drawing our attention even further is the 17-17 hovering above it, drawing our attention back to the Falcon.

No Ground Zero/ Stargate ritual drama would be complete without a Texas oil millionaire with patrician facial features, and here Kirby delivers the goods. Taking the role is Texas Jack Muldoon, a rootin' tootin' hellraiser jes' a-rarin' to jump on through that Stargate to the madman's heaven and kick some Ausländer ass.

Kirby gets the ethnicity a bit off but the semiotics down pat. Muldoon is an Irish name meaning "commander of the fortress." The crotch-hugging straps are a nice, prophetic touch. The twin Roman numerals need no explanation.


Nor does that reverse-Madbomb/Kong pose mirroring Cap as he emerges from the other side of the Stargate.

Ironically, fans were right when they labeled Kirby's 70s work "irrelevant." Kirby was looking through the prism of the Collective Unconscious straight into the 21st Century. The Night People saga is a pitch perfect foreshadowing of the orgy of paranoia, materialism and self-righteousness that befell America circa 2002- 2004. In many precincts, the Night People still reign triumphant.

Ironically, "The Night People" came out smack dab in the middle of America's Bicentennial but had nothing to do with 1976. It was about the next 100 years.


The Leprechaun


One of my biggest influences is Graham Hancock, the pioneering British journalist and explorer. In my opinion, Hancock is a giant of our times and his influence on popular culture is as huge as it is unacknowledged. I attended his first talk on his latest masterwork, Supernatural, as New York's sublime Chapel of Sacred Mirrors. Being a Casteneda fan from way back in the day, I was captivated by the talk. Yet at the same time I was desperately hoping that people wouldn't use the book as motivation to go out and chug some ayahusca for themselves. I see that kind of activity as the equivalent of deep sea diving or Antarctic exploration- best left to the experts.



Many of the details in Hancock's talk struck a chord with me. When I was a kid I would get respiratory infections all of the time. As a result I would get terrifyingly high fevers, often peaking at 106ºF. As a result of that, I would often hallucinate. When I was 12, I got a particularly serious ear infection and was bedridden for over two weeks. Actually I was couch ridden- I was so weakened I couldn't walk up and down the stairs. If I wasn't so incredibly sick it would have been Paradise- nothing to do but lie around and read comics. I was a big Captain America fan at the time and was reading about three years worth of the title during that episode.

One night during this illness, I woke to a most peculiar tableau. A leprechaun was sitting on a rock in the middle of the living room and there was a thunder storm flashing in the adjacent room. I call him a leprechaun only because he was small and bearded and wearing archaic clothes and a rope belt. But he didn't seem cute and charming, he seemed scary as hell. He was shouting over the noise of the storm in a language I didn't understand, maybe Gaelic. And at some point the ceiling opened up and gold coins rained from the ceiling. The noise was unbearable and I passed out.

The thing is, that happened. It wasn't a dream- it all happened when I woke up and stopped when I passed out. I remember it better than yesterday. I was painfully awake at the time. There were no coins on the floor the next morning nor any burn marks on the floor or on the furniture in the dining room. But that doesn't mean the episode didn't have weight and mass and sound and sight and smell. It also doesn't mean that it wasn't extremely unpleasant either.

After Hancock's talk I waited in the receiving line and then told him that story. His face lit up and he nodded knowingly the entire time. He told me that my experience was basically identical to any number of the shamanic experiences he heard about in the field. He said that high fever seemed to throw the same filtering switch in the brain that hallucinogens did. I was gratified by his response, but at the same time I wondered how anyone could put themselves through that kind of thing voluntarily.

Still and all, I was captivated by Hancock's research. And as per usual, the more I heard about shamanism and its by-products the more I was reminded of Jack Kirby....


Shamanic Visions


Jack Kirby may not be a household name, but we all are immersed in his visions. So many of the Hollywood wizards people celebrate today - not to mention video game makers - were raised on his comics. You can essentially separate action and sci-fi cinema at the point before and after Jack Kirby fans poured into Tinseltown and changed the look, tempo and intensity of these films. Somehow Kirby tapped into something so incredibly deep in the Collective Unconscious that it transformed his work and subsequently transformed society. It simply took some time for the technology to put Kirby's visions on the screen.


But Kirby may have been more than a mere visionary cartoonist- as if that's not enough in and of itself. I remember one night I was lying on the couch, flipping through a stack of Kirby's Eternals comics when a documentary on the Discovery Channel was talking about how shamanic art in different cultures had similar features- abstracted human figures, dots, squiggles, and odd geometric designs. What struck me about that was in the mid 1960's Kirby's art underwent a startling transformation and incorporated all of those motifs.


Subsequently, Kirby's Marvel work became popular with acid-dropping college kids. And when I am lost in my musings (which is pretty much all the time) I sometimes wonder if the man didn't drop acid himself. It wouldn't surprise me; in fact, it would explain a lot. Kirby was an artist, not a stockbroker, and had hip baby-boomer kids. But at the same time I don't know if acid or any other mind-altering drugs are necessary to tap into the deep recesses of the dreaming mind. As it is, Kirby's work was already infinitely more mind-bending than the Haight-Asbury artists, as talented as they were.


If anyone in the media was a shaman, it was Jack Kirby. Among tribal societies it's believed that shamans can transcend the limitations of time and space. So could that explain Kirby's bizarre foreshadowings of the Gulf War, 9/11 and the Bush era? Or was some outside intelligence driving his visions? And is there any real difference between the two?


It's important to remember when you see some of the wacked-out stuff Kirby put on paper that he claimed that his stories existed inside his mind, and he simply traced them onto the page. But Kirby's psychedelia wasn't the self-conscious, self-important variety of the Boomer cartoonists who followed in his wake. In fact, Kirby's stories are rife with corny dialog and silly characters. His work came from the same sensibility as 50's drive-in movies and the pulps. And it was only with the guiding hand of super-salesman Stan Lee that Kirby's fever dreams were able to reach the mainstream. He most certainly didn't think of himself as a shaman or a visionary, which may well be what allowed him to really dive into the deepest waters of the subconscious mind.


But using therapeutic terms like "the subconscious" makes all of this too pat, too easily pigeonholed. Kirby was gripped by something powerful and compelling, as are all artists and visionaries like him. Many people like that often teeter on the brink of full-blown schizophrenia. The line between a shaman and a madman is vanishingly small. It's almost always mind-numbingly depressing when the line is crossed. It's even more depressing when it's exploited for profit's sake.



The problem is that trying to write about all of this without sounding like a credulous idiot is a pain in the neck. It's tempting to leave all of the interlocutory jargon behind and speak the language of the Dreaming Mind itself. You see this language in Blake's poetry, the Bible, and the work of writers like Plutarch or Ovid. But there's always the danger that you can follow shipwrecks like Syd Barrett into the abyss. I often wonder how Jaz Coleman is able to function, he can be so terrifyingly unhinged at times. I wondered the same about Philip K. Dick after reading through his Exegesis or Elizabeth Fraser in 1994. Which is why I find the guiding hand of Jungian analysis so incredibly important.


The Convulsive Power of the Dreaming Mind



Not only is it no accident that a Jung stand-in pushed Captain America into the ether just before Kirby's return, it may have even been intentional on the part of the writer, Marv Wolfman. The 70s were a pretty dreary decade, but it didn't lack for pop intellectualism. Marvel was full of writers who came in from the counter-culture, and a smart cookie like Marv Wolfman may well have realized that Kirby's obsession with the gods resonated with Jung's work. Captain America was about to embark on a 22-issue descent in the depths, a Jung-like 'night sea journey' into prophecy, conspiracy and visionary madness. Free-falling over the skies of Manhattan would be the least of Cap's problems.

          District Attorney And Major TV Network Sued Over Stupid Reality Show   
Cross-posted from

The most tragically stupid decision was greenlighting a reality show about lawyers. No one cares about watching real-life lawyering. That’s why Nancy Grace exists — to boil salacious cases down to sound bites so viewers don’t have to watch real lawyers.

But almost as stupid was greenlighting a show about a district attorney on the eve of an election and not expecting to run afoul of campaign finance laws.

Imagine running against an incumbent armed with a glossy, major network reality show constantly hyping his effectiveness in office. In the context of a district attorney election, imagine having to run against Adam Schiff after everyone watched a Law & Order marathon.

If that seems unfair, one challenger agrees with you…

The Kings County D.A. election is coming up in September. Well, technically, the Democratic primary is coming up in September, but this is Brooklyn, so that’s really the only election that matters — the Democratic nominee got 99.98% of the vote in the general last time.

Incumbent Charles Hynes is set to star as a real-life Adam Schiff in the upcoming CBS reality show, “Brooklyn D.A.” Basically, watch Cops and then this show and you’ve made yourself a crass, exploitative, reality show version of Law & Order. Since half of the “stars” of this new reality show — based on the tip of Long Island — will be defendants facing time in the state pen, it brings new meaning to being “voted off the island.” It’s kind of “Survivor: Borough Hall”

The show is described in CBS press materials thusly:

“Created by veteran CBS News producer Patti Aronofsky, ‘Brooklyn D.A.’ follows the men and women of the Kings County District Attorney’s Office as they juggle more than 1,000 cases a week,” a press release states. “These hard-charging prosecutors have larger-than-life personalities both inside the courtroom and out. They’re eccentric and living right on the edge. They’re the people living the lives that Hollywood loves to write about.”

Well, that sounds gag-inducing. The promise of “larger-than-life personalities” is going to flop when the audience has to watch 40 minutes of jury selection.

Challenger Abe George does not like it one bit. He’s sued Hynes, the Hynes campaign committee, and CBS in New York County Supreme Court. Hynes is already preparing the “Abe George doesn’t even trust Kings County courts for his own lawsuits — how can we trust him as Kings County D.A.?” ad. George argues that the series is an improper gift to Hynes, granting him free advertising on a major network in advance of the election.

CBS countered:

CBS News spokeswoman Sonya McNair told Courthouse News that George should brush up on the Bill of Rights.

“We are surprised that this candidate would not know about the First Amendment,” McNair said in a statement. “This is obviously a publicity push by a politician.”

This is a poor PR move. The snarky tone and derisive statements about George as a candidate don’t do CBS any favors in a lawsuit where the network is trying to prove that they are NOT willing cheerleaders for the Hynes campaign.

Speaking of poor PR decisions, according to the complaint, Hynes described the impact of the show on the election to Reuters, saying, “if they couldn’t take me out then, boy, you’ll never take me out now.” *Facepalm*

CBS argues that the program is a news documentary and therefore escapes NY campaign finance laws that might apply if the program were a reality show produced for entertainment. And CBS has carefully marketed the show as a news program:

George claims that reply was disingenuous, given how CBS marketed the show on March 27.

“A new reality show will give us an inside look into the Brooklyn District Attorney’s Office,” the press release stated, according to the complaint.

“CBS also expressly categorized its announcement on the website under ‘Entertainment.’ This website is still available as of the date of this complaint.

*Double facepalm*

CBS and Hynes may still be able to escape NY campaign finance laws based on Citizens United, which set the table for invalidating the journalistic exception in the new corporate free-for-all of electioneering. If drawing lines between media corporations and regular corporations violates equal protection, then CBS is free to campaign all it wants for Hynes.

And if that’s the case, might I suggest CBS can get started on a reality show following newly announced NYC mayoral candidate Anthony Weiner. They can call it, “Look At My Weiner.”

Описание: Прекрасный проект, который получил признание относительно недавно. Открытый игровой мир, много разнообразных пушек для боевых действий, а также возможность играть в мультиплеере – всё это понравилось игрокам во всем мире. Несмотря на то, что сама Арма находится пока что в бета-тестировании, людей, которые уже сейчас играют в неё сутками напролет, действительно много, а это уже о многом говорит. Сюжетной линии нет и вряд ли она будет, так как в целом игра вполне достойно смотрится исключительно с элементами выживания. Ролевой составляющей было уделено особое внимание, благодаря чему пользователи могут самостоятельно одевать своих персонажей в желаемую броню, экипировать их по-своему, что предоставит определенные бонусы во время боя. Объединяясь в команды и сражаясь против соперников, можно разрушать их укрытия, забирать вещи и многое другое. Графическая составляющая также находится на высоком уровне. Спецэффектов и головокружительных перестрелок здесь нет, однако, весь мир отрисован достойно, машины и персонажи также качественно проработаны как графически, так и физически. Замечательная игра для кооператива, в которой можно сразиться против команды соперника или просто поисследовать открытый мир.

Особенности игры:
- Новый игровой движок позволяет управлять боевыми действиями с невиданной ранее реалистичностью.
- Теперь появилась возможность погружаться под воду!
- Разнообразие вооружений — от «классических» АК-74 и М-16 до еще не вышедших в серийное производство прототипов.
- Объединив все положительные качества предшественников, с эволюционно новым движком и возможностями, ARMA 3 предоставляет игроку ни с чем не сравнимый опыт тактического боя.
- Создавайте собственные игровые сценарии, используя простой и интуитивно понятный редактор миссий.

          Virtual Reality Is Being Used to Help Burn Victims in Seattle, but Could It Be Dangerously Addictive?   
Caleb Springer credits VR with helping his pain, but others have gone to reSTART, a rehab center for gaming and VR addiction. by Katie Herzog

In 2010, Caleb Springer, then 23, was riding a friend's scooter in his home state of Alaska. He didn't realize that the gas cap was missing, and after he tipped the bike over, gasoline spilled onto his pants. An errant cigarette spark hit the gas, and Springer was quickly engulfed in flames from the bottom up. More than half of his body was burned.

Springer was airlifted from Valdez to Seattle's Harborview Burn Center, more than 1,000 miles away. He would stay there for two months.

Third-degree burns are one of the most painful injuries a person can go through and survive. With other traumas—childbirth or surgery or breaking a limb—there's a one-time event and then, if all goes well, the pain begins to ebb. In the aftermath of a severe burn, nurses are tasked with scrubbing away dead, damaged, and infected tissue to improve the odds that the living tissue survives. Physical therapy can be even worse. Other than knocking out patients entirely, there's little dulling of the pain.

Springer is Alaskan: He fells trees, rides snowmobiles, drinks Pabst, shoots guns, and works on a dock. He's tattooed and bearded, and he's been in plenty of fights. But this recovery was "excruciatingly bad," he said. This was especially true during wound care, when nurses peeled off old dressings that had dried to the skin grafts covering his legs, back, and arm. Later, during physical therapy, his new skin had to be stretched out. "I could barely handle it even with all the pain meds they were giving me," he said.

Even on drugs like morphine and fentanyl, 86 percent of burn patients report "severe to excruciating" levels of pain during this process, just like Springer. But unlike most burn patients, Springer's doctors at Harborview were working with a novel way to manage pain: virtual reality.

Virtual reality (VR) may seem like an expensive, silly-looking toy—something that spoiled teens and bored yuppies buy for playing video games or watching porn. But Springer's doctors were on the front side of the burgeoning trend of using virtual reality as therapy.

Today, seven years after Springer's accident, the virtual-reality industry is booming and Seattle is its nexus. In 2016, the Washington Interactive Network estimated that 40 virtual- or augmented-reality companies are headquartered in the region, in addition to outside corporations with VR teams based here. This includes monoliths like Google, Facebook, Amazon, and Microsoft, as well as gaming giant Valve.

There are also small game developers like Endeavor One, a five-person team building a virtual-reality game set in a 1980s-era arcade. The world they've created is both familiar and surreal, with neon lights, dotted carpet, Street Fighter, and a ceiling that opens into a brilliant night sky. Independent and self-funded, cofounder Tom Doyle called his start-up the "punk" of the gaming world as we sat at a glass table in his immaculate town house on Capitol Hill. He and his team all came from big corporations, and now they work out of his garage downstairs. Doyle said he'd love to see more VR start-ups in the neighborhood.

Seattle also has software and hardware developers, content creators, and other companies working in logistics, commerce, education, social media, and more. And where VR goes, VC goes as well: Local venture capitalists like Maveron, Madrona Venture Group, and Trilogy Equity Partners have all begun investing in virtual, augmented, and mixed reality (an emerging technology that superimposes graphics onto your view of the world). With mixed reality, you could be walking through Seattle on a gloomy winter day, but inside your headset it looks like summer.

Some of these groups are investing locally. Pixvana, a Fremont start-up making software that will let anyone with a headset edit VR videos, raised $6 million from Madrona and Vulcan, Paul Allen's investment group. Ballard-based Pluto VR, which is developing an app to help users communicate within virtual reality, recently secured nearly $14 million in funding. And Magic Leap, a notoriously secretive augmented-reality start-up with offices in Georgetown, was valued at $4.5 billion last December, and they still haven't released a single product. Venture capital is still easier to come by in Silicon Valley, according to many local start-ups, but there's plenty of incentive to base in Seattle: There is no income, corporate, or capital gains tax in Washington State. From a start-up's perspective, this could be a benefit worth billions. For everyone else, the upside is less clear.

But before Seattle became a hub for virtual reality, before there were Oculus Rifts or HTC Vives or thousands of developers moving into shiny new high-rises, there was the Harborview Burn Center and SnowWorld.


Hunter Hoffman, an experimental psychologist and the founder of the University of Washington's Human Interaction Center, pioneered the use of virtual reality in medicine 25 years ago, back when VR headsets were as heavy as a human head and cost tens of thousands of dollars apiece.

Hoffman first started using VR to treat arachnophobia, and then, in collaboration with Harborview Burn Center psychologist David Patterson, he turned his attention to pain. The two have now treated hundreds of patients, as well as healthy volunteers, using a VR program Hoffman developed called SnowWorld in clinical trials—the same trial Caleb Springer participated in.

During wound care and physical therapy, patients like Springer used Hoffman's VR program to lob snowballs at slightly menacing snowmen as Paul Simon's "You Can Call Me Al" played in their headphones. (Simon apparently granted his permission during a visit to the burn center.) When you hit the snowmen twice, they shatter like ice. When you hit a wooly mammoth instead, they trumpet back.

And this works: Before SnowWorld, said Springer, "my pain level was at an 8 or a 9 out of 10. When I used the VR, the levels dropped to around a 3 or a 4 because my mind was focusing on that instead of on the pain all the time."

In addition to burns, VR has been used to treat phantom limb pain, post-traumatic stress disorder, depression, Parkinson's disease, brain damage, autism, dementia, schizophrenia, the side effects of chemotherapy, as well as an array of anxieties. Brenda Wiederhold, a psychiatrist in San Diego, uses VR-based cognitive behavioral therapy to help people work through phobias, including the fear of driving and flying. After seven years of using VR, Wiederhold said, her success rate is 92 percent.

It's easy to see how VR would be useful in treating fear. My first experience with VR was at Portal, a virtual-reality arcade and bar that opened in Ballard in April, one of just a handful of such businesses in the world. Owner Tim Harader strapped a headset on me and placed two controllers in my hands. All of a sudden, I was in an elevator, moving up. The world in my headset didn't quite look like ours: It was too cartoonish to be photorealistic, and yet, when the elevator doors opened and I saw a narrow wooden plank stretching into sky, my palms began to sweat and my heart started to race. I knew, cognitively, that I was safely on the ground in Ballard, and yet I felt like I was about to walk off a skyscraper. I could even hear the wind in my headphones. I grabbed Harader's arm, and he tried to guide me out onto the plank—but there was no way. I slunk back into the elevator and pressed the down button. But, I thought, if I had any desire to conquer my fear of heights, this might be able do it.

Researchers think it's this immersive quality that makes VR so effective when used in medicine: It's the ultimate escape. While visiting VR start-ups in the area, I shot fireballs at robots and arrows at angels. I saw massive, terrifying spiders and an eclipse from outer space. I tried to find my way out of a locked room (I could not), and I attempted to pet a blue whale the size of a school bus (that didn't work, either). I stood on top of the Statue of Liberty and looked over at Manhattan. I flew a mile over Nevada's Black Rock Desert, as close as I'll ever get to Burning Man. An hour in VR went by in minutes. Each time I did VR, I'd later try to describe the experience, but there was no way to do it justice. It was like tripping without drugs.

But while this total immersion might be good for burn victims or gamers or anyone who can't leave the house, some experts say that's exactly what could make it such a threat.

There's no sign for reSTART. Founder Hilarie Cash gave me directions over the phone—she's hard to reach on e-mail—and said to make sure I wrote them down. "Your GPS," she said, "might not work."

With the help of Cash's directions, I found it in a quiet neighborhood 17 miles east of Seattle. The neighborhood is on the woodsy side of suburban, and the house looks like a typical middle-class family home. And it is a home, albeit one with no internet, no cable, no cell phones, and very few women. Because reSTART is a treatment center for internet, video game, and VR addicts.

The center can house up to six clients—or "guys" as Cash calls them—and when I arrived, the four current residents were just getting back from their therapy appointments with staff counselors in town. One of the guys stretched out his hand. "Greetings," he said, "most pleased to make your acquaintance."

All of the current clients were there specifically for gaming addiction, and their in-town therapy sessions are a big part of their treatment. Clients also attend 12-step meetings—sometimes specifically for their addictions, but more often the only meetings available are Sex and Love Addicts Anonymous or even Alcoholics Anonymous.

It may seem incongruous, gamers going to AA, but Richard Ries, director of the addictions division at the University of Washington School of Medicine, said there are plenty of similarities between drinking and gaming. For one, both can clearly ruin your life. And like drugs and alcohol, gaming causes a flood of the pleasure chemical dopamine in the brain. Eventually, you may develop a tolerance and seek more and more of your desired stimulus—be it gaming, gambling, drinking, or drugs—with less and less reward. When you start to need a substance or a behavior instead of simply liking it, you may have a problem.

Still, there is some debate in psychological circles as to whether or not tech addiction even exists. The American Psychiatric Association declined to add it to the latest addition of the Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM) in 2013, but they did note in the appendix that "Internet Gaming Disorder" requires further study. Many in the field, like Cash, think it's only a matter of time before tech addiction is officially recognized in the DSM—at least, if the gaming industry doesn't interfere first. The worldwide gaming industry saw revenues of $91 billion in 2016, and the lobbying arm of the industry actively resists the idea that problem gaming can be an "addiction." The insurance industry, too, has reason to fight it: Right now, insurance companies won't touch reSTART, but if tech addiction were included in the DSM, they would have to.

Instead, reSTART's current four residents and the hundreds who have come before them pay out of pocket—and handsomely. The first phase alone, a seven-week stay at the reSTART house, is around $30,000. Completing all three phases can cost up to $75,000.

One current client, Mason (all reSTART clients' names have been changed), took a medical withdrawal the final semester of his senior year in college so he could get treatment. Most of the guys looked like the stereotype of gamers—a little awkward and ill at ease—but Mason, wearing a Duke Ultimate Frisbee shirt, was sociable and fit, and looked like he could have pledged a frat.

At his lowest point, Mason hid away in a campus library, ignoring his family and friends for three days and bingeing on Defense of the Ancients, a multiplayer game where teams battle to destroy each other's castles. Unable to find him, Mason's friends reported him to the police as a missing person, and his dad flew in to pick him up.

In the first phase, the inpatient portion, residents give up tech entirely—aside from movie night once a week. Cash called this the "detox" phase and said withdrawal typically lasts three weeks. Symptoms include anxiety, depression, agitation, and restlessness.

Instead of gaming, the guys go to groups, exercise, take hikes, play outside, read books (no fantasy allowed), and learn some of the skills they'll need to live on their own: cooking, laundry, taking care of the house therapy dog. That's Cash's goal: for her clients to live normal, independent lives where they have healthy relationships with both technology and other people.

"We are social animals," Cash said. "It is our birthright to be in intimate, safe, loving relationships, and if you don't have that in your life, you will become dysregulated, emotionally and physiologically. So many people are seeking connection online, but it's a paltry substitute."

Mason hopes to return to school, complete his last semester, and go on to get a PhD in biology, but other reSTART clients choose to stay in the area after they're done. One former client, Ryan, told me his gaming addiction caused him to drop out of college three times and cost him his job in real estate. After quitting gaming cold turkey and then relapsing twice, Ryan gave into his addiction and started playing nonstop. Eventually, hopeless and depressed, he decided to kill himself. "I was going to do it on the anniversary of my grandmother's death," he said. "That way, my mom wouldn't have to be sad twice a year."

Before that date came, Ryan's family unexpectedly visited and saw that something wasn't right. He'd gained weight, his house was a wreck, and he'd stopped bathing. His family convinced him to go to reSTART, and he went through all three phases in the course of a year. Each stage has less and less oversight by reSTART staff—in phase 2, the clients start to live independently and get jobs at places like Costco and Target—but even now, totally out of the program, Ryan lives in an apartment with friends he met in reSTART and is still deeply involved in the community. He started a 12-step meeting for gaming addiction on the east side of the county.

There have been no studies on the long-term efficacy of reSTART—or of most other treatment centers for either substances or behaviors—but when I asked Ryan if it was worth the cost, he said, "Yes. It saved my life."


Ryan and the other gamers purchased many of their games from Steam, a distribution platform owned by Bellevue-based gaming company Valve. Steam is essentially the gaming world's version of iTunes. It's huge. Valve doesn't disclose sales or earnings, but Steam took in an estimated 15 percent of global PC game sales in 2015, according to Spy Steam, a site that analyzes game sales based on public information. Valve's CEO, Gabe Newell, is worth an estimated $4.1 billion.

Valve became famous among gamers for blockbuster first-person shooter games like Half-Life and Counter-Strike, but last year, in partnership with manufacturer HTC, it released its first VR headset, the Vive. The HTC Vive now retails for about $800 and is a direct rival to the Oculus Rift, a VR system designed by a teenage libertarian now worth $730 million. (Oculus, which was acquired by Facebook for $2 billion in 2014, leases more than 50,000 square feet of office space in Sodo.)

Valve employees Nat Brown and Greg Coomer showed me around the Bellevue headquarters, which is scattered about with lasers and robots—real ones, not toys. The space takes up five stories in a glass tower right next door to Microsoft, and when I asked my tour guides what their job titles were, they shrugged and said they didn't really know. Except for Newell, there's no hierarchy at Valve, and employees don't have titles, bosses, or seating assignments. Their desks are on wheels.

Brown and Coomer—both dads in their 40s—were optimistic about the future of virtual reality and its impact on the world. In fact, all of the VR developers I interviewed were optimistic about tech. They see only the good. Facebook, to the optimist, isn't a place where people live-stream murders and suicides, and Twitter isn't the platform that led to President Donald Trump. It's a way for people to connect.

When I asked VR company founders and employees about the potential for addiction or abuse, more than one reminded me that people were wary of television when it first came out. The printing press, too. Instead, they believe in "better living through tech," as one founder told me—that technology won't usher in the demise of our planet, but that it could actually improve it. Forest Key, the founder of Pixvana, thinks that VR could cut out the need for air travel. Instead of flying to distant locations for meetings or vacations, we could just put on our headsets and stay home. "Think of the carbon emissions we'd save," he said.

Others say VR could even improve our species. Tom Doyle, cofounder of Endeavor One, told me that VR could make users care about racism or deforestation or wars happening far away by giving us the chance to experience the way other people live. Bill Gates, apparently, agrees: In April, he introduced his Samsung VR channel, which allows users to "visit" developing nations to learn about issues in public health.

"If you think about it," Doyle said, "it's actually an engine of empathy."

Hilarie Cash, from reSTART, on the other hand, imagines the worst: a future where we're all plugged in all the time, stuck in our headsets while the world falls apart around us. "Sure," she said, "there are some positive implications for VR. Maybe once in a while a burn victim won't feel them scrubbing their wounds. But that's not how it's going to be used. It's going to be used for gaming. All this stuff is commercially driven. People want to make billions," she said. "And they do."

As more and more people invest in virtual reality, Cash thinks we're facing an epidemic of addiction. And the best way to prevent any addiction, she said, is to stop it before it starts: Parents should limit their children's exposure, keep gadgets out of their rooms, and encourage kids to develop responsible tech habits before it's too late. Soon that could become more difficult: In May, Microsoft announced an initiative to bring its latest headset into schools.

As for Caleb Springer, he hasn't seen VR since SnowWorld, but he said he'd love to try it sometime. He's still in quite a bit of pain—seven years after the accident, there are staples in his legs and sometimes they hit a nerve. He plays a lot of video games these days, some of them made right here in Seattle. Springer laughed when I asked if he's worried about a dystopian future where we're all addicted to technology. He's not scared of virtual reality—he survived a fire. recommended

          業界內幕:重創遊戲實況主的假金援   
實況主是當前的新行業,藉由提供遊戲實況與互動性,換取觀眾的支持與金援。然而最近有越來越多的實況主指出,少數觀眾會假裝金援,實際上卻一毛不拔,這種行為不僅形同欺騙,還會造成各種實質傷害,對實況主造成嚴重困擾。

想像一下,你在街頭進行表演,某位觀眾遞上鈔票,卻在你伸出手的前一刻把錢抽回去,你會做何感想?這就是所謂的假金援。實況界也有假金援的存在,每一位實況主都有可能收到假金援,而且最近幾年來,假金援有越來越多的趨勢。

稍早之前,職業實況主暨任天堂社群名人的戴斯蒙.”Etika”.艾摩法在YouTube上對觀眾抱怨說,他又被假金援擺了一道。「那個爛貨他○的捉弄我,他○的拿走我的錢,他○的毀了我的生活!」艾摩法在影片中激烈地表態,看得出他對假金援有多麼反感。

▲實況主艾摩法非常痛恨假金援。

事情發生在稍早之前,艾摩法在他的Twitch實況中收到5筆金援,金額皆是50美金或100美金,讓他喜不自勝。可是一陣子之後,艾摩法檢視他的PayPal帳戶後赫然發現,當初收到的5筆金援居然變成爭議款項。那位觀眾事後要求收回當初送出的金援,而他也確實把錢收了回去。更讓艾摩法感到生氣的是:上百美金的退款手續費必須由他買單。

「對於我自己與許多網路創作者而言,假金援無疑是致命的困擾。」艾摩法悻悻然表示,「我們的生活必須倚靠PayPal,假金援卻他○的搞爛了我們的生活!」

▲金援實況主前請三思,別讓美意變成惡意。

所謂的退款,就是要求信用卡公司退還先前支付的款項。實況主經常利用PayPal帳戶來管理財務,還得不斷應付與日俱增的退款與假金援,令他們疲於奔命。懷著惡意的觀眾甚至將假金援當成武器,用來捉弄他們看不順眼的實況主。

或許是觀眾想要利用金援來鼓勵實況主,卻沒有能力支付這些錢;或許是少數不肖份子想要找麻煩,害實況主必須花錢消災。無論實情為何,這些假金援都已經對實況主造成實質上的困擾。絕大多數的實況主選擇讓觀眾退款,任憑對方取回當初承諾的巨額金援,至於剩下的失望、憤怒,以及高昂的PayPal帳戶退款手續費,都得由實況主自行吸收。

▲PayPal是實況主接受金援的主要管道。

PayPal之所以同意用戶退款,是為了保護用戶不受詐騙。舉例來說,小偷可能盜刷偷來的信用卡,讓原本的卡主蒙受鉅額損失。然而只要卡主能夠舉證,讓信用卡公司相信卡片的確被盜刷,卡主就有權利拒絕支付盜刷的款項。

2016年,一位暱稱是iNexus_Ninja的18歲觀眾慷慨解囊,金援將近50000美金給喜歡的實況主們,光是實況主LegendaryLea就分到11500美金。當LegendaryLea看見這麼大的金額入帳後,忍不住繞著房間手舞足蹈。

▲LegendaryLea曾經收到5位數的金援。

▲這位仁兄就是iNexus_Ninja,金援實況主的好人(?)。

後來iNexus_Ninja才坦承,他其實是偷拿雙親的信用卡來金援實況主。iNexus_Ninja希望收回這些金援,而這個舉動將導致受他金援的實況主們狂噴數千美金,對他們造成極大的傷害。信用卡公司最後拒絕了iNexus_Ninja的要求,這個決定並不令人意外。

 

(後面還有:假金援導致帳戶凍結與信用受損)

▲實況主Kaceytron同樣受到假金援的困擾。

另一位知名實況主Kaceytron同樣面臨假金援的問題。她每個月平均收到半打左右的假金援,這些假金援通常是小額款項。2013年,在Kaceytron剛出道的那一陣子裡,她偶爾會收到超過1000美金的金援,不過這些金援很快就被收了回去,害她空歡喜一場。

「有一次我很倒楣,短期間內接連收到假金援,害我的PayPal帳戶被銀行凍結。」Kaceytron回憶道,「在帳戶凍結的兩三個星期裡,我無法收到觀眾的任何金援,這讓我感覺糟糕透頂。」

▲帳戶被凍結是非常嚴重的問題。

帳戶凍結還不是最糟糕的情況。如果觀眾要求退款,實況主的PayPal帳戶卻沒有留下足夠的錢,帳戶餘額就會變成負值,實況主事後不僅得支付罰金,還可能面臨信用受損的嚴重後果。信用受損如同留下前科,將影響當事人未來所有的信用活動,如貸款或租房子。Kaceytron指出,她總是習慣讓帳戶金額保持平衡,不至於沒錢可退,可是她偶爾還是會擔心惹上惱人的麻煩。

今年4月,艾摩法在Twitch實況時,收到某位觀眾的200美金。「請放心,我不會要求退款。」那位觀眾俏皮地說。或許那位觀眾只是想表達幽默感,可是艾摩法並不覺得好笑。艾摩法立刻中斷實況,藉此表達他對退款議題的強烈不滿。後來艾摩法利用實況的機會,向觀眾解釋退款是多麼糟糕的一件事。

▲實況主收到100萬歐元的金援,一看就知道是假的。

「當你擁有一個小小的實況頻道,好死不死遇到觀眾退款,又沒有像我這樣迅速做出正確判斷,PayPal就會凍結你的帳戶。」艾摩法說,「事情還沒完喔,一旦銀行拿不到該退的錢或罰金,就會追蹤你在其他銀行的帳戶,或是將這筆帳記在你的PayPal信用卡貸款欄內,讓你吃不完兜著走。」

Twitch曾經打算管理假金援的亂象,可是PayPal是第三方工具,不在Twitch的管轄範圍內,最後只能不了了之,至於PayPal則是拒絕回應任何關於假金援與觀眾退款的問題。

▲實況主經常被假金援弄得心煩意亂。

「我們不會評論PayPal的運作。」當談到PayPal的時候,Twitch的客服經理,艾隆.凱利的答覆相當保守,「我們所做的,就是開發一套整合PayPal支付的行動應用程式。」

艾摩法回憶道,他當初碰到觀眾退款的時候,與PayPal的服務專員講了好幾個小時的電話,告訴對方觀眾退款將嚴重影響實況主,也就是他本人的生計。艾摩法相信PayPal現在站在他這邊,願意幫助他拒絕惡意的退款。

▲得到金援不代表可以拿到錢。

「假如實況主沒有經常檢查PayPal帳戶,就可能惹上大麻煩。」艾摩法說,「許多實況主被觀眾退款搞得焦頭爛額,必須花費一番功夫連絡PayPal,還得想辦法說服對方自己才是受害者。無論退款金額是大是小,我們都得努力向PayPal解釋,聽起來很糟,然而這卻是我們唯一能夠做的事。」

          Moto X4 rumored to be upcoming Project Fi 'mid-tier price' smartphone   
Motorola event large

Remember yesterday when Google teased that a new Project Fi-compatible phone with a “mid-tier price” would be launching later this year? Well today a new report claims to have more info on which device Google was referring to.

Project Fi’s upcoming “mid-tier price” phone is the Moto X4 from Motorola, according to a report from VentureBeat. The device is expected to launch in Q4 2017, and while there aren’t a ton of spec details available, a leaked Motorola presentation suggests that the phone will have a 5.2-inch 1920x1080 display, “3D Glass”, and a feature called “SmartCam”.

The arrival of the Moto X4 on Project Fi would be notable for a few reasons. Not only would it be the addition of a new phone that’s officially supported on Project Fi, but it’d likely be the first non-Nexus and non-Pixel phone to launch on Fi. Plus, its “mid-tier price” means that Fi would once again have a more affordable device available for customers, following the discontinuation of the Nexus 5X.

While the Moto Z line seems to have taken over as Motorola’s flagship series, the impending arrival of a new Moto X phone is still something to look forward to, especially with the news that the X4 could be a new Project Fi handset. What do you want to see from the Moto X4?


          New Google Play Store rolling out with app changelogs in Updates tab   
Google Play Store Nexus 6P

A new version of the Google Play Store is now rolling out, and it’s bringing with it a small but meaningful change.

Google Play Store version 8.0.22 is now rolling out to Android devices, and one change that it offers is the ability to show an app’s changelog in the Updates tab of “My apps & games”. This means that you can see the changes and new features in an app update without having to leave the Updates tab to go to the app’s full page.

Google Play Store changelog Updates

This is a pretty nifty feature for Google to add. When a new app update hits your phone, you might want to see what new features have been added. This new feature helps you do just that while saving you some time.

This new version of the Google Play Store is now rolling out, so keep an eye out for these in-line update changelogs the next time that you update your apps.


          Google says Project Fi getting new 'mid-tier price' phone later this year   
Project Fi Nexus 6P

Project Fi is only officially compatible with a handful of phones, and the only ones that are currently available for purchase are the Pixel and Pixel XL. That’ll change soon.

Google has revealed that a new Project Fi-compatible phone “at a mid-tier price” is coming later this year. The mystery device will come from one of Google’s partners, but that’s all that we know about it right now.

The cheapest smartphone that you can buy for Project Fi right now is the Google Pixel, which starts at $649. That’s not exactly cheap, and it could turn would-be Project Fi customers from joining the service. The news that an affordable Fi-compatible phone is on the way is good to hear, and it’ll be interesting to see exactly which device it is.

Are you using Project Fi? If so, which device are you using on it?

          Steve Wozniak Akui (Beberapa) Keunggulan Android   

Perlu digarisbawahi bahwa Steve Wozniak masih menganggap iPhone sebagai smartphone terbaik, tapi dia juga tak menyangkal bahwa ada beberapa bidang dimana Android mampu mengungguli Apple. “Ponsel utama saya adalah iPhone dan saya benar-benar mencintai keindahannya. Tapi saya masih berharap seandainya saja iPhone saya mampu mengerjakan segala pekerjaan yang bisa dilakukan oleh Android saya.” Wozniak yakin bahwa voice command milik Android serta sistem navigasi buil-in yang ada dalam mobile OS ini adalah sebuah keunggulan utama, serta ponsel Android memang tidak se-simpel iPhone dalam penggunaannya, tapi juga tidak terlalu rumit.

Bulan Desember lalu, Steve Wozniak sempat muncul di markas besar Google untuk mendapatkan produk andalan mereka yaitu Samsung Galaxy nexus, walaupun pada akhirnya dia lebih memilih untuk menggunakan Motorola DROID RAZR. Co-founder Apple ini juga yakin bahwa voice command Android jauh lebih responsif daripada Siri. “Saya lebih sering gagal ketika menggunakan Siri dan hal itu sangat mengganggu. Ketika sedang mengendarai mobil, saya pernah memerintahkan Siri untuk menghubungi Lark Creek Steak House dan perintah tersebut tak pernah berhasil diproses. Lalu saya beralih ke Android dan mengucapkan perintah yang sama, dan ponsel tersebut langsung menanggapinya dengan baik serta menghadirkan navigasi lengkap. Android jelas lebih unggul dalam hal ini.”

Walaupun ada beberapa hal yang masih perlu dikritisi, Wozniak masih merekomendasikan iPhone sebagai pilihan terbaik untuk para pengguna smartphone. “Kebanyakan orang yang saya rekomendasikan untuk menggunakan iPhone 4S umumnya adalah orang-orang yang sudah menggunakan produk Mac karena keduanya sangat kompatibel, juga orang-orang yang agak takut dengan komputer dan tidak ingin menggunakannya sama sekali. iPhone adalah perangkat yang sama sekali tidak perlu dikhawatirkan. Untuk orang-orang yang khawatir dengan kerumitan seperti dalam penggunaan komputer, maka iPhone adalah ponsel yang paling tepat karena sangat mudah digunakan dan perangkat ini akan melakukan apapun yang Anda perintahkan.”

          StarCraft Remastered: Preis, Termin und Details   
StarCraft: Remastered wird am 14. August 2017 für PC und Mac für 14,99 Euro erscheinen. Das Remake des Echtzeit-Strategieklassikers ist vollständig mit der bisherigen Version von StarCraft kompatibel, sodass alle Spieler, die das Upgrade kaufen, gemeinsam mit Spielern spielen können, die StarCraft und StarCraft: Brood War bereits besitzen.

Das grundlegende Spielprinzip und die Balance von StarCraft und StarCraft: Brood War bleiben im Remastered völlig unberührt, abgesehen davon, dass man deutlich weiter rauszoomen kann, um einen besseren Überblick über das Schlachtfeld zu bekommen. Einheiten, Porträts, Gebäude und Terrains (Karten) wurden überarbeitet und die Soundkulisse (Soundeffekte, Dialoge und Soundtrack) verbessert. Höhere Bildschirmauflösungen (bis 4K) und Breitbild-Formate werden unterstützt. In der Story-Kampagne wird jedoch die Präsentation der Geschichte verändert.  Die Einsatz-Beschreibungen und Dialoge zwischen den Missionen werden durch neue Sequenzen im Comic-Stil ersetzt. Die Auflösung der Zwischensequenzen (Render-Cutscenes) wird auf 1080p angehoben. Im Multiplayer-Bereich werden ein Matchmaking-System (Spielerzuweisung) und Ranglisten eingeführt. Spielerprofile mit individuellen Statistiken sind ebenfalls vorgesehen. Auch die sozialen Features der Blizzard App (ehemals Battle.net) werden unterstützt. Des Weiteren wird man zwischen der Remastered- und der Originalversion mit einem Tastendruck wechseln können.

"Vor beinahe 20 Jahren hat StarCraft Millionen von Spielern in ein episches Scifi-Universum entführt und gleichzeitig die Grundlage für Esports gelegt, wie wir ihn heute kennen"
, so Mike Morhaime, CEO und Mitbegründer von Blizzard Entertainment. "Leidenschaftliche Spieler auf der ganzen Welt spielen heute noch Brood War, sowohl mit Freunden als auch in Wettbewerben. Deshalb modernisieren wir die Technologie von StarCraft, sodass sie das Spiel noch viele weitere Jahre genießen können."

Alle Spieler, die vor dem 14. August im Blizzard-Shop vorbestellen, erhalten drei Skins für Gebäude in StarCraft: Remastered: den Schwarmstock von Char, die Kommandozentrale von Korhal und den Nexus von Aiur. Außerdem erhalten alle beim Kauf von StarCraft: Remastered digitale Boni für StarCraft 2, wie den Co-op-Kommandanten Alexei Stukov und drei einzigartige Porträts zur Feier von StarCraft: Remastered.

StarCraft: Remastered wird für PC und Mac erhältlich sein. Es wird vollständig lokalisiert in den Sprachen Englisch, brasilianisches Portugiesisch, europäisches und lateinamerikanisches Spanisch, Französisch, Deutsch, Italienisch, Polnisch, Russisch, Koreanisch, Japanisch sowie vereinfachtes und traditionelles Chinesisch erscheinen.

          Scaling Scrum without crushing its soul   

Recently I attended training on Nexus at Scrum.org’s Boston headquarters. Nexus is based on the core principles and values of Scrum and allows companies to apply Scrum at scale while retaining the bottom-up intelligence of self-organisation. This post outlines my experience with Nexus and why I feel it is an important consideration for organisations scaling agile without compromising its principles, values and benefits.

The concept of “scaling agile” has created significant debate in the agile community. In particular, the introduction of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) has been controversial. Many agilists feel SAFe runs counter to the core values of agile (in particular “Individual and Interactions over Processes and Tools”) by promoting hierarchy and top down control, suppressing the power of self-organising teams to mere delivery units, aka Taylorism. However, it is not the intention of this post to further this argument.

Nexus takes a different view of the world. It is non-prescriptive, Nexus has been described well by others (here and in the Nexus Guide) so I won’t regurgitate that. Instead, I will discuss the salient learning points:

  1. Nexus helps organisations build software at scale without compromising the bottom-up intelligence of self-organising teams. Like Scrum, it is minimalistic, with a small yet clear set of rules. The brilliance of self-organisation remains intact – autonomy, engagement, shared ownership and continuous improvement. Teams continuously improve and using the core principal of emergence they adapt to develop a model that best suits the organisation.
  2. At scale, dependencies (technology, tools, architecture and people) become challenging. Transparency is a critical tool in resolving this.
  3. At scale, integration is challenging yet essential. Delaying integration to the end, or dealing with it in a “hardening” or “integration” Sprint reduces agility and introduces technical debt. In Nexus the approach is the same as Scrum – an integrated, done increment is delivered at least every Sprint.

One of the first things we covered was to pause and ask yourself “why scale?” What are you trying to achieve? Are you thinking that because single team Scrum worked, doing more of that will deliver even more benefits?  Are you expecting that adding more teams will yield more results? What is your goal? Increased productivity? More value? Increased engagement? Don’t forget Brooks law – adding more people to a late project makes it later. Think before you act.

The second thing to ask yourself is “how can do more with the teams we already have?” If you had money to spend on solving this without adding more people, what would you spend it on? There are significant gains to be had from automation, training, coaching, increasing transparency, removing organisational impediments and increasing the focus on value (i.e. outcomes over outputs). Scrum.org call this Professional Scrum and make it clear that Nexus is built on Professional Scrum. Another way of looking at this is what hurts in single team Scrum is excruciating at scale. Don’t scale crap.

So, assuming you have at least considered these questions, then let’s look into the framework.

Nexus introduces one new role, two new artefacts and four new events:

  1. One new role – the Nexus Integration Team
  2. Two new artefacts:  Nexus Sprint Backlog – the work the various teams are pulling into the Sprint, and the Nexus Goal – the guiding objective of the Sprint.
  3. Some Nexus level events – Nexus Sprint Planning, Nexus Daily Scrum, Nexus Sprint Review and Nexus Retrospective. Unlike Scrum, Nexus makes Refinement mandatory. More on this below.\

 

The Nexus Integration Team

The NIT is accountable for ensuring that an integrated increment is produced at least every Sprint. The key word here is accountable. That doesn’t mean they do the integration work on behalf of the Scrum teams. It means they remind those teams that they need to work together to deliver one integrated and done increment. It is an additional accountability alongside their normal work in their Scrum team.

The NIT is comprised of the Product Owner (note there is only one PO of a Nexus), a Scrum Master and one or more people from the various Scrum teams. Membership is dynamic – it includes who it needs to include in order to achieve its objective. The NIT is responsible for coaching and guiding Scrum teams to create an integrated increment.

It is important to note that this is different to SAFe’s System Team. The NIT do not build development infrastructure, perform integration and system testing for the teams. They simply help bring an integration perspective to remind and coach the individual Scrum teams that integration is key part of everyone’s work at scale.

This is a fundamentally different perspective to SAFe. Doing the integration work for them is relay race thinking (Taylorism) and totally misses the point. We are looking for shared ownership and group accountability. Having another team integrate the teams work for them feels like a hierarchy and is an epic fail in my book. I am really pleased to see how true to agile values Nexus is in this regard.

Refinement

Refinement is a mandatory event in Nexus and I feel this makes sense. At scale, coordinating work across teams and across Sprints adds significant complexity. Reducing these dependencies for the next few Sprints helps. Rather than view Scrum teams as software delivery factories that need to be fed work that is broken down into digestible pieces, Nexus uses a dynamic network structure , continually adjusting to the work at hand. Based on this, it approaches refinement by adjusting three key areas:

  1. The work – we can restructure Product Backlog items to minimise dependencies.
  2. Teams – we can adjust the composition of the teams to fit the work.
  3. Architecture – we can intelligently architect for scale, allowing teams to work with less dependencies.

They key focus is alignment of these three areas.

I really like the fact that Nexus has introduced this concept. Scaling isn’t about industrialising our existing model to feed fixed delivery teams regardless of the nature of the work. That feels like a production line. Instead, Nexus seems to have adopted concepts from Sociocracy and Holacracy and is comfortable adapting teams to the work. Nice move. Note this is quite a change from the mantra of stable teams.

Scaling via architecture is also important. Spotify take this approach using Chromium Embedded Framework, freeing each team to deploy their part of the product without impacting the other teams.

Refinement is all about transparency of the possible next few Sprints worth of work. If we think intelligently then we can minimise the problems often encountered at scale.

Nexus Sprint Planning

Nexus Sprint Planning creates a plan for the Sprint. All Scrum Team members have the option of being involved but Nexus doesn’t mandate who attends. Again, you have to decide based on your situation. Does everyone attend or just representatives of each team?

They key outcome is a transparent plan (forecast) for the Sprint, including what items depend on others. The level this is done at is product backlog item level – we don’t need to know the task level detail from each team. A Nexus Sprint Backlog might look something like this with dependencies highlighted:

There are many approaches for conduct large scale Sprint Planning described elsewhere so I am not going to delve into that here. They key takeaway is the importance of strong facilitation skills.  Time spent designing the flow of Sprint Planning is time well spent. Think Lyssa Adkins POWER starts.

There is a good white paper on the Nexus Sprint Backlog here.

Nexus Daily Scrum

The key focus of the Nexus Daily Scrum is to make integration issues transparent and actively manage dependencies. The outcome of the meeting becomes a key input into each teams’ individual daily Scrum. For example, if there are integration issues then these should take priority as they could be blocking other teams.

The Nexus Daily Scrum is attended by whoever needs to be there. It is NOT a meeting for the Nexus Integration Team. It is designed to allow the Nexus to optimise daily, therefore attendance reflects this. This took me a while to get my head around but I realised it was a remnant of hierarchical management stuck in my head. I still had the concept of the NIT being “in charge” or “above” the Scrum Teams. It isn’t. The NIT is simply an additional accountability on individual Scrum Team members with a separate focus – integration. A good example given in the class was the concept of fire wardens at your workplace. They take an additional responsibility for different scenario – a fire. It doesn’t make them “higher up” in the organisation.

Nexus Sprint Review

There isn’t a lot of change to the core concept here.  The purpose is to inspect the increment and progress and adapt our next move. The challenge is doing this at scale. Again, preparation is they key. Typically, integration issues become evident for new teams.

Nexus Retrospective

From the Nexus Framework graphic you will notice that the Nexus Retrospective happens in two parts, sandwiching the normal team retrospective. The Nexus parts are attended by representatives of the Scrum Teams – whoever makes sense.

The first part looks at issues that are occurring across multiple teams in the Nexus. What issues are common and impacting us all?  Often these are things like integration issues, environment issues, dependencies etc. These common trends are included into the teams standard Scrum retrospective. The second part determines how to visualise and address the identified issues. It allows the entire Nexus to adapt based on the findings of individual teams.

I really like this model as it provides a feedback loop for all teams to improve the Nexus – i.e. bottom up intelligence.

Summary

In summary, I am pleased I invested the time to learn Nexus and feel relieved that there is a scaling approach available that embraces agile principles.  Scaled Scrum is still Scrum. In Nexus’ heart is the self-organising team and the unwavering faith in bottom-up intelligence. In its soul is the belief that autonomy, shared ownership, continuous improvement and professionalism do not need to be compromised just because we are working at scale. I feel Nexus makes an important contribution to the agile world.

A special thanks to Rob Maher who did an outstanding job delivering the course and has been a key contributor to Nexus.

The Fandango app for Android isn't very good. It's just a web wrapper for the most part, and half the time when I try to buy tickets, the purchase times out and I have to try again. But now, there's one major reason to use it over the mobile site - Android Pay.

Now when you buy tickets through the Android app, Android Pay shows up as a payment option.

          [Out of beta] The latest SwiftKey update brings GIF support and 9 new languages for transliteration   

Well, we knew it was coming, but as of today the stable version of SwiftKey now supports GIF input. Other features from the recent beta, like transliteration support for a bunch of new languages and keyboard shortcuts for hardware keyboards, are also present in the recent v6.6.2 stable release. So, the next time emoji just aren't expressive enough, you'll be able to find an animation that more precisely and accurately states your feelings, with just a few taps. 

Not all of the features from the beta release have been brought over to stable.

          Instagram will start blocking "offensive or inappropriate comments" using machine learning   

Abuse has always been a problem on the internet. In most cases, attackers can retain full anonymity, and never face the consequences of their actions. This is especially common on social media, but Instagram is trying to stay one step ahead. Starting today, a new option in the Instagram settings allows users to hide offensive or inappropriate comments.

The new setting can be enabled by opening the account settings, and scrolling to 'Comment Settings.' If the feature is rolled out to you, you'll see a new 'Hide Offensive Comments' switch.

          Monday Musings: Back on Home Soil   
HOW-DAY!

I'm coming to you from my favourite chair in our living room.  Yup, we're back on home soil.  I'm happy but sad at the same time.  It's really nice to be back in our own house, sleeping in our own bed.    And of course, the first thing I did as soon as we got in after grocery shopping, was fill up the tub with some lavender scented epsom salts and bubble bath.  HEAVENLY.  I'd like to say the drive home was a breeze, well the second half of it was but the first half was BRUTAL.  I think March 31st is probably NOT the smartest day to leave Florida.  At one point when we were crawling along the interstate, I looked around and noticed that the occupants of pretty much every single car around us were at least 75 years old.  It was the senior citizens exodus.  Which might have explained why the traffic was so freaking brutal.   It took us over 3 hours to get through 2/3 of Georgia.  Georgia isn't that big!  Our first day drive was about 13 hours.  It should have been 10.   Traffic karma made up for it the next day.  We flew through Virginia & West Virginia.   Even with stops, we still managed to make up time.  The Border was smooth sailing as well.  Gotta love having a Nexus card!

I was fully expecting to freeze my butt off when we got back but it was actually quite nice.  The sun was shining as we drove across the border and there was a nice breeze.  It definitely feels like spring. That being said, I don't remember how to dress for these temps so getting ready for yesterday's run was challenging.  It was 14 degrees but in Florida that would have been chilly so I put on capris and a very light long sleeve shirt.  WRONG.  I was quite toasty.  Shorts would have been a better idea, even after the sun disappeared, I was still pretty warm.  Lesson learned.

Now that I'm back home and I have an idea as to what the weather is really like, I think I'm going to try to brave things and ride outside.  I honestly don't know that I can face being back in the basement.  I know that Morning Glory has been out riding during the week and this past weekend and it was only 4 degrees out!  THAT'S crazy talk.  Although there is a good chance I will be drinking that Kool-Aid this weekend.  And I'm planning on suiting up and heading out on two wheels this afternoon to test the waters.

Now that I'm back home, a lot of people have asked me "Now What?".  Well, I currently have a nicely manageable roster of athletes and planning for and monitoring them keeps me trucking along.  I still have to do my practical exam for my personal training certification so that will probably take up a lot of my time over the next few weeks.  I'm also doing some part time work for the Canadian Public Relations Society so I have just enough on my plate to keep me busy-ish, which is perfect.   There are a few other things in the works but I'll keep them under wraps for now until they get firmed up.  That's all I'm going to say about that, he he.

Anyway, let's get to the real meat of this post.  My last week of fun in the sun!  Again, it was all about the bike, however, I surprisingly had a huge week in the pool as well.  Wonders never cease.

Monday:  2286m recovery swim.  My legs were pretty sore from the clay trail run so I had nice easy swim at the NTC.

Tuesday:  2469m swim with SLAP followed by a 90.5km ride to almost the top of the Apopka Trail.  I thought I reached the top when I got to Apopka Station but realized when I stopped at a map on my way back that the trail actually went 1.6 miles FURTHER.  UGH.  Guess I'll have to wait until next year to see what's at the top of the trail!  But I love that I was able to ride 90km on TRAILS.  I wasn't on the road ONCE during this ride other than to cross the street.  Florida has definitely got this whole trail thing right!

Wednesday:  20.5km Another really easy spin on another local trail.  I had planned to do a run and go to the gym but that never happened.


I did come home to this email though, which made me chuckle.   Can I represent Canada instead???



Thursday:  2100m:  last swim with SLAP in the 50m pool and then my last ride with the Clermont Crew.  They even took me on a different route!  My goal was to ride 100km that day but I was pretty pooched by the time I got back and it was scorching hot out.  I realized shortly after I got in that I was just shy of my 200km weekly cycling goal so I went back out and did another 5.8km  Total for the day was 91km.  I didn't have it in me to ride the extra 9km, not after fighting a headwind all the way back, ha ha.

Serious #RideMatchy action happening!  This WAS NOT planned!

Friday:  I had big plans for this morning, I was going to run and go to the gym but we were out the night before and I had a splitting headache when I went to bed so I slept in until 6:45 and then had to finish packing and cleaning out the fridge.  So no workouts.

Saturday:  Another day spent in the car.

Sunday:  Back home and up early to go swim with Normac.  3200m done, followed by a 12km run.

Totals:

Swim:  10,550m  the biggest week I've ever had swimming!

Bike:  201km

Run:  12.3km

Total time:  11h 50 minutes.

Now that I'm back home, my workout schedule will be changing.  I'll be back to early mornings once again.  I'm kind of looking forward to that.  It's nice to come home after a workout and know that you still have most of your day to be productive.   That should result in some more content on the blog!

Now I need to finally finish unpacking and then go get on the bike!

I'll leave you with this Monday Mantra:

~ Happy Monday!




How was your week of training?  Has spring arrived for you yet??

          Arma 3: Apex Edition   
Краткое описание: ARMA 3 — это новый виток в жанре тактических военных симуляторов от независимой студии Bohemia Interactive, создателей нашумевшей Operation Flashpoint.
ARMA 3 впитала в себя все самое лучшее из предыдущих игр серии и привнесла множество инноваций. Новый физический движок позволит игроку с невиданной ранее реалистичностью управлять боевыми действиями. Новая модель поведения техники, широчайший спектр оружия, от уже ставших классическими M16 и AK74 до прототипов, еще не поступивших в широкое пользование, а так же долгожданная фанатами серии возможность плавать под водой.
После нескольких лет изнурительной войны, Европа стала последним пристанищем ослабленных в боях сил НАТО. Остров Стратис захвачен противником с ближнего Востока и его завоевание даст гарантированное превосходство НАТО в данном регионе. Началась операция «Магнитуда»: небольшая группа специально подготовленных солдат вместе с учеными под прикрытием отправляются на остров в Средиземном море. Миссия под угрозой краха! Команда практически полностью уничтожена, а главного героя, капитана Скотта Миллера, выбрасывает на берег вражеского острова. Завершить операцию в его силах, но на его пути встают все опасности современных военных действий, безжалостная окружающая среда и численное превосходство врага. Обдумывать придется каждый шаг!

Google gets made fun of for treating its customers like beta testers quite often, and the latest situation the company has gotten itself into doesn't do that reputation any favors. In very close proximity with another Android Auto issue, users on the Android Auto User Community in Google's Product Forums are reporting that Google Maps is crashing when navigation is initiated.

Basically, this problem arises whenever you try to navigate anywhere via Maps on an Android Auto head unit.

One of the draws of having a personal assistant is being able to control various things through it. Alexa is popular partially for this reason and Google Home/Assistant has been slowly catching up since its launch. Just a few weeks ago, our very own Cody noticed that Google was implementing direct support for IFTTT in the Google app for user-defined actions. Well, this has finally appeared in the Home app in a "Shortcuts" menu in the Assistant section.

There were some interesting features announced as part of the launch of Google's Pixel phones. While some are exclusives to the new handsets, others are a part of the new Android 7.1 Nougat. One of the headlining features for the new OS version is the App Shortcuts API, a way for apps to offer fast access to select screens and functions.

It likely speaks to future plans for the look and feel of Android, but there's no denying that new icons are cosmetic – they don't actually do anything. Part 2 of this teardown switches over to the functional side as evidence shows Launcher Shortcuts will return with Android 7.1.

As far as live features go, there are some changes related to navigation that will help keep maps oriented north, even with accidental swipes.

That doesn't have to mean some of the updates don't have something new to offer. The Google app (formerly "Search") was bumped up to v4.8 yesterday, but it doesn't seem to have any noticeable changes right now. However, a look under the hood reveals some pretty interesting features on the horizon.

Another new feature that made it onto Wear 5.0.1 is the new mode switcher for Theatre and Sunlight, both of which are accessible by swiping down on the watch face and scrolling beyond the Mute screen.

I'm a huge fan of text expanders. Seriously, they are necessary to me. As a regular user of both Mac and Windows, I have sought out solutions on both platforms and rely on them daily. That's why I've always felt horrified that there weren't any great options on Android. After all, mobile devices are already input-impaired, it only makes sense that we need quality shortcuts. As it turns out, such a shortcut has been under our noses for quite some time, tucked away where few would look and only available with the stock Android 4.1 (or higher) keyboard.

          From The Creator Of Tweet Lanes: Chris Lacy's Action Launcher Now In The Play Store   

unnamed (1)

Chris Lacy, developer of the gorgeous, widely lauded Tweet Lanes, has finally brought his latest creation to the Play Store – Action Launcher.

As the name would suggest, Action Launcher is a custom launcher with an emphasis on its ever-present action bar. The action bar allows users to quickly open a side-panel app drawer which, in Lacy's words, "aims to allow you to load any app in one second from your home screen." The bar also features Search and Play Store shortcuts, along with an action overflow.

          [New App] Conjure Is Probably The Smartest Launcher Companion We've Seen For Android   

unnamed (1)

Looking to give users the "fastest, smartest launcher for Android," Jesse Andersen brought Conjure to the Play Store recently. The app, which is actually more of a launcher companion, can perform an incredible range of actions, from finding and launching apps to calling contacts, adjusting device settings (like volume, Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, etc.), and searching the web.

What's great about this app is not that it can do a lot, but that it actually adapts to your usage, storing a history of actions and listing content results by frequency of use.

          what is Android L   




Google has unveiled the next version of its Android software for smartphones and tablets: Android 5.0 L.

Announced at the company's annual I/O developer conference in San Francisco, the software will be released in the autumn. It will be preloaded on new Android devices, although manufacturers and mobile operators will dictate when it is downloadable for older ones.

Key features in Android L include a new "material design" look and feel, improved battery life and enhanced notifications.

"This is one of the most comprehensive releases we have done: it has over 5,000 new APIs, and we are thinking not just for mobile, but for form factors beyond mobile," said Google's Android and Chrome boss Sundar Pichai, during the keynote presentation at I/O.

Key to these changes will be a new look and feel across smartphones, tablets and other devices, dubbed "material design" by Google's design chief Matias Duarte, during the keynote.

"What if pixels didn't just have colour, but also depth? What if there was an intelligent material that was as simple as paper, but could transform and change shape in response to touch?" said Duarte. "We drew inspiration from paper and ink, but unlike real paper, digital material can expand, reform and reshape."

Google claimed that L will be significantly faster than previous versions, including when running on existing Android devices like the Nexus 5 smartphone. It will also support 64-bit processors, matching Apple's latest devices.

Meanwhile, a Google initiative called Project Volta has focused on improving battery life on Android devices, including a new "Battery Saver" mode that the company says could give users up to 90 minutes more battery life over the course of a typical day, for some devices.

Google is improving the notifications feature on Android, with users able to read, open and dismiss notifications from the lock-screen of their devices. The software will also try to learn from users' behaviour, in order to judge which notifications are most important for them.

L will also have a centralised setting called Universal Data Control, where Android users will be able to control how data on their handset is shared. Users will also be able to divide their devices between work and personal modes.

"In the PC world, companies gave you a separate laptop for work, and your own personal laptop... that model starts breaking down when you start talking about phones. Nobody wants to carry two phones around," said Pichai, of the new feature.

"We are doing it thoughtfully by providing underlying data separation: all your personal data is isolated from your corporate stuff, and vice versa."

Earlier in the keynote, Pichai said that Android now has 1bn "30-day active users" – people who've used an Android device in the last month – up from nearly 530m a year ago.

He also claimed that Android now has a 62% global market share of tablet shipments, fending off past potshots from Apple that many of those devices are not being used by citing stats from Google's YouTube video service. Android accounted for 28% of its tablet viewers in May 2013, but is now up to 42%.

"We aren't building a vertically integrated product. What we are doing is building an open platform at scale. We work with hundreds of partners globally to bring a product and a platform that touches billions of people. And we want to do it in a way in which we are innovating at a very very fast pace," said Pichai.

He also took a shot at Apple, which has recently added some new features to its iOS software that were already in Android.

"Custom keyboards, widgets. Those things happened in Android four to five years ago. We are working very hard to bring an open platform and innovate on it at an unprecedented scale," said Pichai.

          Scaling Scrum without crushing its soul   

Recently I attended training on Nexus at Scrum.org’s Boston headquarters. Nexus is based on the core principles and values of Scrum and allows companies to apply Scrum at scale while retaining the bottom-up intelligence of self-organisation. This post outlines my experience with Nexus and why I feel it is an important consideration for organisations scaling agile without compromising its principles, values and benefits.

The concept of “scaling agile” has created significant debate in the agile community. In particular, the introduction of the Scaled Agile Framework (SAFe) has been controversial. Many agilists feel SAFe runs counter to the core values of agile (in particular “Individual and Interactions over Processes and Tools”) by promoting hierarchy and top down control, suppressing the power of self-organising teams to mere delivery units, aka Taylorism. However, it is not the intention of this post to further this argument.

Nexus takes a different view of the world. It is non-prescriptive, Nexus has been described well by others (here and in the Nexus Guide) so I won’t regurgitate that. Instead, I will discuss the salient learning points:

  1. Nexus helps organisations build software at scale without compromising the bottom-up intelligence of self-organising teams. Like Scrum, it is minimalistic, with a small yet clear set of rules. The brilliance of self-organisation remains intact – autonomy, engagement, shared ownership and continuous improvement. Teams continuously improve and using the core principal of emergence they adapt to develop a model that best suits the organisation.
  2. At scale, dependencies (technology, tools, architecture and people) become challenging. Transparency is a critical tool in resolving this.
  3. At scale, integration is challenging yet essential. Delaying integration to the end, or dealing with it in a “hardening” or “integration” Sprint reduces agility and introduces technical debt. In Nexus the approach is the same as Scrum – an integrated, done increment is delivered at least every Sprint.

One of the first things we covered was to pause and ask yourself “why scale?” What are you trying to achieve? Are you thinking that because single team Scrum worked, doing more of that will deliver even more benefits?  Are you expecting that adding more teams will yield more results? What is your goal? Increased productivity? More value? Increased engagement? Don’t forget Brooks law – adding more people to a late project makes it later. Think before you act.

The second thing to ask yourself is “how can do more with the teams we already have?” If you had money to spend on solving this without adding more people, what would you spend it on? There are significant gains to be had from automation, training, coaching, increasing transparency, removing organisational impediments and increasing the focus on value (i.e. outcomes over outputs). Scrum.org call this Professional Scrum and make it clear that Nexus is built on Professional Scrum. Another way of looking at this is what hurts in single team Scrum is excruciating at scale. Don’t scale crap.

So, assuming you have at least considered these questions, then let’s look into the framework.

Nexus introduces one new role, two new artefacts and four new events:

  1. One new role – the Nexus Integration Team
  2. Two new artefacts:  Nexus Sprint Backlog – the work the various teams are pulling into the Sprint, and the Nexus Goal – the guiding objective of the Sprint.
  3. Some Nexus level events – Nexus Sprint Planning, Nexus Daily Scrum, Nexus Sprint Review and Nexus Retrospective. Unlike Scrum, Nexus makes Refinement mandatory. More on this below.\

 

The Nexus Integration Team

The NIT is accountable for ensuring that an integrated increment is produced at least every Sprint. The key word here is accountable. That doesn’t mean they do the integration work on behalf of the Scrum teams. It means they remind those teams that they need to work together to deliver one integrated and done increment. It is an additional accountability alongside their normal work in their Scrum team.

The NIT is comprised of the Product Owner (note there is only one PO of a Nexus), a Scrum Master and one or more people from the various Scrum teams. Membership is dynamic – it includes who it needs to include in order to achieve its objective. The NIT is responsible for coaching and guiding Scrum teams to create an integrated increment.

It is important to note that this is different to SAFe’s System Team. The NIT do not build development infrastructure, perform integration and system testing for the teams. They simply help bring an integration perspective to remind and coach the individual Scrum teams that integration is key part of everyone’s work at scale.

This is a fundamentally different perspective to SAFe. Doing the integration work for them is relay race thinking (Taylorism) and totally misses the point. We are looking for shared ownership and group accountability. Having another team integrate the teams work for them feels like a hierarchy and is an epic fail in my book. I am really pleased to see how true to agile values Nexus is in this regard.

Refinement

Refinement is a mandatory event in Nexus and I feel this makes sense. At scale, coordinating work across teams and across Sprints adds significant complexity. Reducing these dependencies for the next few Sprints helps. Rather than view Scrum teams as software delivery factories that need to be fed work that is broken down into digestible pieces, Nexus uses a dynamic network structure , continually adjusting to the work at hand. Based on this, it approaches refinement by adjusting three key areas:

  1. The work – we can restructure Product Backlog items to minimise dependencies.
  2. Teams – we can adjust the composition of the teams to fit the work.
  3. Architecture – we can intelligently architect for scale, allowing teams to work with less dependencies.

They key focus is alignment of these three areas.

I really like the fact that Nexus has introduced this concept. Scaling isn’t about industrialising our existing model to feed fixed delivery teams regardless of the nature of the work. That feels like a production line. Instead, Nexus seems to have adopted concepts from Sociocracy and Holacracy and is comfortable adapting teams to the work. Nice move. Note this is quite a change from the mantra of stable teams.

Scaling via architecture is also important. Spotify take this approach using Chromium Embedded Framework, freeing each team to deploy their part of the product without impacting the other teams.

Refinement is all about transparency of the possible next few Sprints worth of work. If we think intelligently then we can minimise the problems often encountered at scale.

Nexus Sprint Planning

Nexus Sprint Planning creates a plan for the Sprint. All Scrum Team members have the option of being involved but Nexus doesn’t mandate who attends. Again, you have to decide based on your situation. Does everyone attend or just representatives of each team?

They key outcome is a transparent plan (forecast) for the Sprint, including what items depend on others. The level this is done at is product backlog item level – we don’t need to know the task level detail from each team. A Nexus Sprint Backlog might look something like this with dependencies highlighted:

There are many approaches for conduct large scale Sprint Planning described elsewhere so I am not going to delve into that here. They key takeaway is the importance of strong facilitation skills.  Time spent designing the flow of Sprint Planning is time well spent. Think Lyssa Adkins POWER starts.

There is a good white paper on the Nexus Sprint Backlog here.

Nexus Daily Scrum

The key focus of the Nexus Daily Scrum is to make integration issues transparent and actively manage dependencies. The outcome of the meeting becomes a key input into each teams’ individual daily Scrum. For example, if there are integration issues then these should take priority as they could be blocking other teams.

The Nexus Daily Scrum is attended by whoever needs to be there. It is NOT a meeting for the Nexus Integration Team. It is designed to allow the Nexus to optimise daily, therefore attendance reflects this. This took me a while to get my head around but I realised it was a remnant of hierarchical management stuck in my head. I still had the concept of the NIT being “in charge” or “above” the Scrum Teams. It isn’t. The NIT is simply an additional accountability on individual Scrum Team members with a separate focus – integration. A good example given in the class was the concept of fire wardens at your workplace. They take an additional responsibility for different scenario – a fire. It doesn’t make them “higher up” in the organisation.

Nexus Sprint Review

There isn’t a lot of change to the core concept here.  The purpose is to inspect the increment and progress and adapt our next move. The challenge is doing this at scale. Again, preparation is they key. Typically, integration issues become evident for new teams.

Nexus Retrospective

From the Nexus Framework graphic you will notice that the Nexus Retrospective happens in two parts, sandwiching the normal team retrospective. The Nexus parts are attended by representatives of the Scrum Teams – whoever makes sense.

The first part looks at issues that are occurring across multiple teams in the Nexus. What issues are common and impacting us all?  Often these are things like integration issues, environment issues, dependencies etc. These common trends are included into the teams standard Scrum retrospective. The second part determines how to visualise and address the identified issues. It allows the entire Nexus to adapt based on the findings of individual teams.

I really like this model as it provides a feedback loop for all teams to improve the Nexus – i.e. bottom up intelligence.

Summary

In summary, I am pleased I invested the time to learn Nexus and feel relieved that there is a scaling approach available that embraces agile principles.  Scaled Scrum is still Scrum. In Nexus’ heart is the self-organising team and the unwavering faith in bottom-up intelligence. In its soul is the belief that autonomy, shared ownership, continuous improvement and professionalism do not need to be compromised just because we are working at scale. I feel Nexus makes an important contribution to the agile world.

A special thanks to Rob Maher who did an outstanding job delivering the course and has been a key contributor to Nexus.

          Schools and Terrorism: Global Trends, Impacts, and Lessons for Resilience   
This study characterizes trends in the frequency and characteristics of terrorist attacks in child-serving educational institutions around the world, examining the specific vulnerabilies of children and schools with regard to terrorist violence, as well as the various impacts that violence has on children, communities, and societies. Following the analysis of available data on terrorist attacks against educational institutions, vulnerabilities, and impacts, the study concludes with a discussion of what still needs to be understood in the intersection of child vulnerability and terrorism, and provides recommendations for improving resilience to terrorist attacks against child-serving educational institutions. One would like to think that certain truths or values would be universally understood as rules of engagement, formally declared or otherwise. The sanctity of children's well-being should be unquestioned, regardless of the issues at stake in the larger conflict. Sadly, history shows that this understanding is neither universally shared nor uniformly valued. —Irwin Redlener, Americans at Risk, 2007 Since the violent attack on School Number One in Beslan, Russia in 2004, the perceived threat of massive terror attacks targeting schoolchildren has loomed in the public consciousness. In recent years, attacks against educational institutions worldwide have increasingly been reported and documented. The kidnapping of 276 schoolgirls by Boko Haram in Nigeria and the massacre of at least 150 students and staff in a Peshawar school by the Pakistani Taliban in 2014 are still fresh in the minds of the public. These attacks serve as reminders of the vulnerability that children in schools face, being “soft targets” whose symbolic value has the capacity of invoking mayhem at the largest possible scale. They also demonstrate the urgency with which this emerging trend in violence must be systemically recorded, analyzed, and mitigated. The following article will discuss the vulnerability of children with regard to terrorist violence, exploring the literature on what makes children and educational institutions particularly desirable targets. Trends in the frequency and characteristics of terrorist attacks against child-serving educational institutions around the world will be examined, paying particular attention to potential school level and gendered disparities. Finally, a critical analysis on what can be learned from the available data and what still needs to be researched in the nexus of child vulnerability and terrorism will be provided.
          Google I/O: Chrome iOS, Drive e le altre novità   
Ancora più cross-platform. Chrome si apre ai dispositivi iOS (iPhone, iPod Touch e iPad). È quanto annunciato alla conferenza Google I/O 2012. Oltre all’applicazione progettata per i sistemi Apple, una versione tablet verrà installata di default sul nuovo Nexus 7.

          Eclipse & Android SDK on openSUSE   
I woke up at 6 this morning with the urge to investigate writing an Android application. I have been a mostly satisfied user of Android ever since the G1 was first launched. I even switched to T-Mobile to get one from AT&T. The sales person at the time was confused as to why I would switch carriers to get that phone. Fast forward to this fine morning where I'll make my first attempt at putting my own pixels on my Android device, now a Nexus One. Unfortunately, Eclipse in openSUSE seems to be a bit out of date. However, the Android ADT Eclipse Plugin is known to not work on 3.6 anyway, so for now I am just sticking with Eclipse 3.4. Additionally, there does seem to be a packaging issue as well that you'll need to resolve.
  • sudo zypper in eclipse java-1_6_0-sun-devel
  • sudo chgrp -Rc users /usr/share/eclipse
  • sudo chmod -Rc g+w /usr/share/eclipse
Note that I explicitly select the Sun Java devel package because Eclipse is allegedly faster using this Java implementation. If you prefer not to taint your system with proprietary software, the default-selected java-1_6_0-openjdk-devel should work just fine. The permissions fixing against /usr/share/eclipse is to make sure that Eclipse software updates work properly. Start Eclipse, and go to Help → Software Updates and then select the Available Software tab and finally Add Site. Add the two following sites:
  • http://download.eclipse.org/releases/ganymede/
  • https://dl-ssl.google.com/android/eclipse/
When both sites show up (are no longer "Pending"), check the top-level check box for the Android site to select all Android plugins, then click Install and walk through the installation wizard. With the installation complete, quit and restart Eclipse. Go to Window → Preferences and choose the Android section. Here you need to set up your SDK. I'm assuming you've already installed it. Now you can go to Window → Android SDK and AVD Manager. Select Available Packages and install the SDKs, documentation, and samples packages that interest you. I'm sticking to the 1.6 SDK I guess for now, since not many people seem to have the 2.2 goodness yet. After you install an SDK, you can then create a virtual device that targets it. Good luck!
