Oliver raised the candle above his head: and looked towards the Oliver saw that she was very pale, and gently inquired if she towards him: and wrung her hands; but made no reply.
The virtuous ring which served the truth to explore!

          : Fine across England, Wales - Showers for Scotland, 01 jui - 17:13   

Sunday Across western and central parts of Scotland expect good deal cloud and occasional showers. Some of these will become heavy through the day. Much of eastern Scotland should escape most of the showers with sunnier spells. A fair, dry day to come across England and Wales with good spells of sunshine and some occasional cloud coming and going. Expect maximums of 15 to 18 Celsius in the north and 19 to 22 Celsius in the south.

Sunday Night In the evening an area of heavy showers affects northern parts of Scotland while another area of showers heads into Wales. Fine and dry across the rest of Britain with some late sunshine to end the day across central, southern and eastern parts of England. A mostly cloudy night to come with a few showers possible just about anywhere. Expect minimum temperatures of 12 to 15 Celsius.

Monday Partly to mostly cloudy across Britain for the morning and the afternoon with some sunshine and a risk of scattered showers. Some areas will escape the showers with the south east and East Anglia most likely to remain dry. In the evening light rain spills in across Wales and north west England and this tends to turn a bit heavier as it spreads in across northern England and parts of Northern Ireland. Expect highs of tops of 16 to 20 Celsius.

Tuesday A warmer day to come and it's going to remain unsettled. Across northern parts of England and Northern Ireland and area of light to moderate rain tends to linger for much of the day. Across Wales and the south showers are expected to develop but still some dry sunnier spells are likely. Much of Scotland looks to be dry through the day. Through the evening most of the rain and showers is expected to die away with most areas to have a dry night with clear spells. Expect highs of 17 to 23 Celsius.


          Weather: Cloudy and damp   
AFTER a rather cloudy but generally dry start, we're likely to see some patchy rain this afternoon.

          Reading the Office of Legal Counsel on Emoluments: Do Super-Rich Presidents Get a Pass?    

 

I wrote last November that the Foreign Emoluments Clause “is on its face a national security provision designed to the protect the country from officers too enmeshed with foreign interests.” If the Justice Department’s recent court filing is to be believed, that protection is exceedingly limited. This new position marks a decisive break from the more conscientious approach long espoused by both the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel (OLC).

At the heart of the emoluments controversy is President Trump’s refusal to liquidate his business holdings. He has instead maintained ownership of the Trump Organization, a multibillion-dollar umbrella company with thousands of domestic and international investments, and placed the assets in a revocable trust managed by his sons Donald Trump, Jr. and Eric Trump. Trump now faces three lawsuits alleging that he is profiting from his business empire in violation of the Constitution. Three days after his inauguration, Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW), a government accountability watchdog group, filed the first suit in the Southern District of New York. This month, two more complaints were filed by the attorneys general of Washington D.C. and Maryland and 196 congressional Democrats, in federal district courts in Maryland and the District of Columbia, respectively.

All three suits center on the meaning and scope of the Foreign Emoluments Clause, which provides that “no person holding any Office of Profit or Trust under them, shall, without the Consent of the Congress, accept any present, Emolument, Office or Title of any kind whatever, from any King, Prince or foreign state” (U.S. Const. art. I, § 9, cl. 8). Citing Trump's business dealings with state governments and federal agencies, such as its lease on the Old Post Office Building that now houses the Trump International Hotel, two of the suits also allege violations of the Domestic Emoluments Clause. This provision applies specifically to the president and provides that he shall receive “for his Services” a fixed compensation during his tenure and not “any other Emolument from the United States, or any of [the states]” (U.S. Const. art. II, § 1, cl. 7).

Serious procedural challenges like standing notwithstanding, given the House and Senate’s failure to address head-on the risks posed by Trump’s financial conflicts pose, the lawsuits could prove important in forcing a much-needed conversation: Is Trump taking in profits in violation of the Constitution? And just as critically, are future presidents entitled to pull a Trump—or does the Constitution dictate that they, like Jimmy Carter, must sell their family peanut farms as a condition of taking office?

No Article III court has ever rendered an opinion on how either Emoluments Clause should be interpreted, though the Supreme Court has offered interpretations of the term “emoluments” as it appears in Foreign Emoluments Clause-related statutes periodically enacted by Congress since 1881. Because of the limited judicial precedent, the internal memoranda from the Comptroller General and the Office of Legal Counsel that have been made public over the years are among the most important sources of guidance we have on emoluments issues. And though these memoranda do not directly address the question posed by the Trump business empire, making some amount of inference and legwork necessary, in critical respects they quite clearly contradict the sweeping defense that the Justice Department put forward this month in its 70-page motion to dismiss the CREW case against Trump.

The key issue in these suits—once you get behind a set of justiciability questions that may prove dispositive—is what constitutes an emolument (though with respect to the Foreign Emoluments Clause there’s also some disagreement about what kind of entity constitutes a “foreign state”). In plain English, we are looking at an exotic presidential twist on the biggest and oldest challenge to enforcing any anticorruption law: What counts? Do the forbidden “emoluments” cover only goodie boxes, blatant quid pro quo arrangements, and employment-related compensation? Or are the profits that Trump enjoys by way of his business transactions also prohibited when they come from foreign states and domestic government entities? And if the latter, more expansive definition is the appropriate one, are the profits prohibited only when the take is in excess of  “fair-market-value”—and if so, does that definition serve as a meaningful limitation when at issue are luxury goods whose value or sales may be inflated by the fact that Trump is president and the products are prominently branded with his name?

Predictably, the dispute has taken the form of a battle for the original meaning of “emoluments.” An array of historical materials support both a limited and broad definition. The two possible interpretations are well summed up by the Oxford English Dictionary, which provides two definitions dating back to the Founding: “1. Profit or gain arising from station, office, or employment . . . . 2. Advantage, benefit, comfort.”

The Justice Department, like Trump’s lawyers at Morgan Lewis, latches onto the first definition  to argue that “the Emoluments Clauses apply only to the receipt of compensation for personal services and to the receipt of honors and gifts based on official position.” That is, President Trump is precluded only from receiving benefits in exchange for services provided to a foreign state in his official capacity as president, or—and this is crucial, given the subject matter of the OLC opinions—services provided “in a capacity akin to an employee of a foreign state.”

The plaintiffs in the three suits, on the other hand, argue for the much more expansive definition. Marshaling its own set of historical evidence, CREW asserts that emoluments are "anything of value, including money, permits, approvals, tax benefits, any other benefits, and anything else monetary or nonmonetary, regardless of whether it is given in exchange for goods or services, and regardless of whether it is part of a transaction at, above, or below market rates."

A close examination of the relevant Comptroller and OLC opinions reveals that the current Justice Department is reading the Emoluments Clauses too narrowly, while CREW and the other plaintiffs are reading them too broadly. None of the opinions approves the receipt of benefits that can even arguably be attributed to the prestige or influence conferred by an office, and together they do not support the Justice Department’s claim that presidents may, as a categorical matter, collect profits from business transactions with foreign entities and domestic government entities as long as fair value is extracted on both sides. But notwithstanding the plaintiffs’ hard pull in the other direction, the opinions also suggest that presidents may in limited cases accept certain fixed benefits—as I will explain, these might be pensions from the U.S. state that used to employ them or money damages from a foreign country against which, in a past life, they successfully won a judgment. The key is that those benefits cannot be subject to foreign or domestic government manipulation or adjustment in connection with the presidential office.

This happens to be a sensible position that accords with what the opinions repeatedly underscore as the purpose of the Emoluments Clauses and the ultimate touchstone for interpreting their meaning: “to prevent corruption and foreign influence” and to bar “payments which have a potential of influencing or corrupting the integrity of the recipient.”

 

Why Language About Emoluments Is Easily Misused

A threshold issue before turning to the OLC literature is the confusion created by cherry-picking historical materials without consideration of their factual context. For example, in its motion to dismiss, the Justice Department followed the lead of some scholars in pulling some Supreme Court language that suggests the term “emoluments” applies only to salary and other duty-related benefits. Most notably, in Hoyt v. United States, 51 U.S. 109 (1850), the Court defines emoluments as “every species of compensation or pecuniary profit derived for a discharge of the duties of office” (emphasis added).

But in Hoyt, the Supreme Court was specifically asked to decide what constitutes an “emolument of office” per a statute governing Treasury Department collectors in their official capacity; the case did not require the Court to consider or rule on the existence of emoluments of other kinds. This is a key point for purposes of properly construing any Comptroller or OLC opinion that cites Hoyt and regurgitates its definition of “emoluments.” These opinions, like Hoyt, have to be read with an eye to their facts: they do not assert that “emoluments” must derive directly from discharge of duty; rather, the kind of emoluments at issue in those opinions was the kind derived for discharge of duty. As a consequence, the reliance on Hoyt in these opinions does not serve as evidence of a limiting principle for emoluments in general.

In short, as pointed out by the plaintiffs and by assorted scholars, the proper question for purposes of discerning the historical scope of “emoluments” is not whether the term could be interpreted in a restricted way, to refer only to benefits derived from discharging the duties of an office, but whether it was necessarily so interpreted at the time the Emoluments Clauses were drafted. As John Mikhail has painstakingly documented, the answer is no—and we don’t have to look at secondary sources, however authoritative (e.g., Black’s Dictionary) to draw that conclusion. Consider, for example, some of the constitutions ratified during the first of two major waves of state constitution-making in the Founding decade. Several included “common benefits clauses” that used the word “emoluments” in a way that simply defies narrow interpretation. The Pennsylvania Constitution (1776) provides: “That government is, or ought to be, instituted for the common benefit, protection and security of the people, nation or community; and not for the particular emolument of advantage of any single man, family or sett [sic] of men, who are a part only of that community[.]” Very similar language appears in the Virginia (1776), Vermont (1777), and New Hampshire (1784) constitutions. Far more elaborate historical arguments demonstrating the broad uses of the term have been presented elsewhere: see here, here and here. The bottom line is that there is an abundance of primary Founding-era material making use of the broad definition of emoluments, so it is wrong to use language from fact-bound case law to assert that the term is an inherently limited one.

 

The Plaintiffs Define “Emoluments” Too Broadly

Does that mean, as plaintiffs assert, that all types of benefits conferred on the president by foreign countries and U.S. states are prohibited emoluments? According to the Comptroller and OLC opinions, clearly not.

A number of opinions explain that officers do not need to forego fixed benefits to which they are entitled for reasons manifestly unrelated to and uninfluenced by their office. This is a common-sense interpretation of the Clauses that avoids rigidity for rigidity’s sake, where denial of benefits would do nothing to serve the Clauses’ anti-corruption, anti-influence purpose.

For instance, the Comptroller and the OLC each independently concluded that President Ronald Reagan could collect ordinary retirement benefits from California, where he had served as the state governor, without violating the Domestic Emoluments Clause’s prohibition against the receipt of “emoluments” from a State. In its 1983 opinion, the Comptroller determined that President Reagan’s pension from California “cannot be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.” Coming to the same conclusion in its earlier 1981 opinion, the OLC also noted that “those [retirement] benefits are not emoluments in the constitutional sense” and their receipt does not “violate the spirit of the Constitution.” To support its reasoning, the OLC in turn relied on a 1964 opinion (not published) where it similarly decided the estate of President Kennedy was entitled to the naval retirement pay that had accrued during his presidency. Interpreting the Foreign Emoluments Clause “in the light of its basic purposes and principles,” it concluded he could receive payments to which he was entitled as a matter of law “prior to his taking office.”

The same principles support allowing officers to collect on certain kinds of money judgments, even from foreign powers. In a 1955 opinion, the Comptroller decided that an attorney in the Justice Department could receive a lump sum payment and lifetime annuity from the German government for his wrongful removal from the judgeship he held before he emigrated to the United States, as provided by German indemnification legislation. The Comptroller reasoned that those payments did not constitute emoluments from his former office, but rather “represent damages payable as a direct result of a moral and legal wrong.” Turning to its “spirit of the Constitution” analysis, the Comptroller had no trouble determining the payments were not problematic: they were “obviously . . . not intended to influence him as an officer of the United States,” were made under laws not specific to him, and were not payments voluntarily made by the German government but rather mandatory indemnification required by the Allied powers. In a 1954 opinion on the same matter, the OLC came to a slightly different place—the payments were not permitted to the extent they amounted to German retiree benefits—but like the Comptroller, it found that damages intended to redress injury were not prohibited emoluments.

Note what these opinions have in common: they generally allow the officer in question to collect payments or benefits that, patently, have nothing to do with and cannot possibly have been affected by his U.S. office. That 1983 Comptroller opinion put it best, and contains a line worth repeating: President Reagan was entitled to his pension because it “c[ouldn’t] be construed as being in any manner received in consequence of his possession of the Presidency.”

Applying this general rule, it makes sense that presidents are permitted to invest in U.S. Treasury bonds; and the rule also explains why wealth management solutions like blind trusts have long been accepted as workable resolutions to problems of conflict of interest. But it certainly doesn’t provide clearance for all profits derived from discretionary, “fair-market-value” transactions where the president is obviously and individually on one end of the sale.

 

The Justice Department Defines “Emoluments” Too Narrowly

A key move in the Justice Department’s brief is to rely heavily on a point of dubious significance: it asserts that “in every published OLC or Comptroller General opinion in which proposed conduct was determined to involve prohibited emoluments, the determination involved an employment relationship (or a relationship akin to an employment relationship) with the foreign government.”

If you think about it, there’s at least one common-sense explanation for the limited precedent: In general, the government employees on whose behalf these opinions were sought probably didn’t own hotel chains, lucrative licensing agreements, or hundreds of trademarks from which they derived significant foreign-based or domestic government-based income. Their thing of value, as civil servants, was their skill set, and thus the relevant question was whether they were constitutionally permitted to lend out that skill set to foreign governments or organizations with foreign state ties for payment.

A 1986 OLC opinion written by then-Deputy Assistant Attorney General Samuel Alito cuts against the assertion that whether the profit in question is derived from employment or personal services should be, by itself, dispositive. There, Alito determined that a NASA employee could indeed accept a fee for reviewing a PhD candidate's thesis for an Australian university. To get to this conclusion, Alito made two significant moves. First, uncertain as to whether a public university should be regarded a "foreign state," Alito instead decided to turn to the features of the proposed consultancy and consider whether they "raise[d] the kind of concern . . . that motivated" the prohibition’s enactment. This marks a functional, purpose-driven approach to the question of permissible benefits. Second, he suggested the following facts weigh against finding the fee a prohibited emolument: (1) the NASA scientist was not selected because of his position with the U.S. government, (2) the fee was an ordinary amount given the service to be rendered, (3) there was no reason for the officer to have "direct contact" with the university officials, and (4) the consultancy was "limited both in time and in substantive scope," and no "continuing relationship" was anticipated.

Note that the fact the scientist would be acting in an employment or personal services capacity did not automatically render the payment an emolument. This is the key takeaway from this opinion, and it is at odds with the Justice Department’s claim that employment is the make-or-break issue when it comes to determining whether a benefit or payment is an emolument. Second, consider the implications of the first and fourth points Alito highlighted. The scientist’s selection for the job and associated payment had nothing to do with his U.S. office, which is not a conclusion that can be readily drawn about the services purchased by foreign and state government employees newly flocking to Trump International Hotel. It may suggest the permissibility of accepting profits from truly routine transactions by truly routine hotel customers, including some government diplomats—but this possibility is undercut by Alito’s reference to the extremely limited nature of the permitted relationship and transaction in question.

The Justice Department is understandably leaning hard on the idea that an emolument must be received specifically as a function of office or employment. After all, without this very specific qualification, its argument for the permissibility of accepting profits from ordinary transactions falls apart. Two OLC opinions make this clear.

A 1982 OLC opinion determined that the Foreign Emoluments Clause barred an employee of the Nuclear Regulatory Commission from working on his leave time for an American firm contracted by a Mexican government agency to review the design of a government-owned nuclear power plant. And a 1993 OLC opinion concluded that law firm partners serving as non-government advisors on the Administrative Conference of the United States could not accept partnership earnings “where some portion of that share is derived from the partnership’s representation of a foreign government” without triggering the constitutional prohibition. In the 1993 opinion, the OLC actually dismissed the argument that the conference member was not subject to the foreign government's “control” as “not decisive.” Instead, the OLC concluded that the portion of partnership profits the conference member would receive "would be a function of the amount paid to the firm by the foreign government," such that "the partnership would in effect be a conduit for that government." Acceptance of that portion of income was therefore a prohibited emolument (OLC reconsidered this opinion in 2010, but only with respect to whether the members held an “Office of . . . Trust” for purposes of the Foreign Emoluments Clause).

In these opinions, the OLC simply did not care that there was nothing out of the ordinary about the payments in these cases from a transactional or fair-market perspective. This runs contrary to the crux of the Justice Department’s argument for the innocuousness of Trump’s business-related foreign and domestic government income.

The textual kicker in all this is that even accepting the Justice Department’s insistence that “emolument” is best read to mean “profit arising from an office or employ” (Barclay’s A Complete and Universal English Dictionary on a New Plan (1774)), it doesn’t follow that all ordinary business transactions are okay: What if those transactions are, in number or value, enhanced by the prestige of the president’s office? Couldn’t the profit thereby derived then constitute “profit arising from an office or employ”? [Update, 5:17 pm: This is a line of argument that Marty Lederman compellingly and more thoroughly details here.]

It is to prevent this reading that the Justice Department argues that prohibited benefits must arise not just from the office but from the provision of services pursuant to that office. But this argument relies on a stunted conception of the power that an "Office of Profit or Trust" confers. To lift an example wholesale from Ben Wittes: If Trump owned a nondescript hotdog truck outside the White House that charged the same price for hotdogs as any other foodtruck and sold them to some incidental foreign customers, that would not be problematic under this definition of emoluments. If the truck were Trump-branded and either charged inflated prices or enjoyed inflated sales because Trump is president, and Saudi potentates lined up to put cash in his register, that would seem to constitute impermissible “profit arising from an office,” as a textual matter and in view of the historic Comptroller and OLC perspective.

At base, this is what plaintiffs are claiming—that the profits Trump is enjoying “aris[es] from” his office—so “aris[e] from” may be a definitional phrase the Justice Department is interpreting too narrowly. Trump’s status as the most powerful man in the world affects his business transactions, which are self-branded to boot. Not only is he enjoying booming business at his exclusive properties, in part thanks to foreign guests reportedly seeking to get in the president’s good graces, but he has also won Chinese trademark protection that, according to plaintiffs, he would not have received had he not become president.

Finally, on a practical note, notice the perverse upshot of the Justice Department’s fixation on employment and personal services as the place where the river divides. This assertion that payment for goods and business-related services is permissible but payment for employment and “personal services” is not means that a president can’t profit off his brain or body when it comes to cash from foreign sources or U.S. government entities, but can, without limitation, profit off the brains and bodies of those he can afford to employ in his private capacity. It’s what you might call a constitutional free pass for super-rich presidents.

The Comptroller and OLC opinions do not support such a result. They repudiate it.

***

Ultimately, the Justice Department’s view of emoluments marks a departure from the public Comptroller and OLC opinions in at least two critical respects. First, the new position is a clear abrogation of the practical “spirit of the Constitution” analysis on which the Comptroller and OLC have consistently relied to ensure a stringent rather than forgiving interpretation of what constitutes an impermissible benefit or undue influence (see, e.g., 1955 Comptroller Opinion, 1981 OLC Opinion, 1983 Comptroller Opinion; see also OLC 1962, noting “the sweeping nature of the constitutional prohibition”; OLC 1980, citing 1902 Attorney General Opinion stating the Foreign Emoluments Clause is “directed against every kind of influence by foreign governments upon officers of the United States” and the “prohibition should be given the broadest possible scope and application”). Second, the Justice Department’s quite specific argument that the president can profit from employing people to do business with foreign countries and government entities in the United States amounts to a strange carve-out, one that allows extremely wealthy officers with people in their employ to cash out as they wish on the advantages that the prestige of their office confers, without any consideration whatsoever of the sources of that cash. This interpretation is flatly at odds with executive branch tradition: I have yet to see a single opinion that has permitted an officer to collect profits even arguably enhanced by the power of his office, much less categorically benefit from discretionary, price-indeterminant transactions that foreign governments and U.S. government entities may enter into at will.

Note the issues I did not address here. What is not (yet) a point of debate in these particular lawsuits is whether these constitutional provisions apply to the president at all. The Domestic Emoluments Clause applies to the president by its express terms, and in its recent motion, the Justice Department doesn’t dispute CREW's claim, or the OLC’s preexisting determination, that the more obliquely phrased Foreign Emoluments Clause applies to the president as well (and notwithstanding the occasional argument to the contrary).

In addition, as the suits proceed in federal court, we can expect much of the legal discussion to focus on jurisdictional hurdles. There’s a strong argument that the courts don’t have a role to play, and that presidential corruption rising to the level of an emoluments violation is a political question whose resolution properly lies with Congress. Though the congressional suit spearheaded by Senator Richard Blumenthal and Representative John Conyers, Jr. alleges that Trump has failed to come to Congress for requisite permission in accepting foreign emoluments, Congress’s best recourse be impeachment proceedings. (Or if it so chose, Congress could avail itself of a lot of options short of impeachment, but in the words of Charles Black, Jr., circa 1974, “what an enormous if.” Recall that the House of Representatives has the power to demand Trump’s tax returns but has not exercised it.)

But as for the substantive question of whether the Comptroller and OLC of yore would have signed off on the Justice Department’s blessing of all monies flowing in by way of business transactions, the answer is “no.”


          Serverless with an existing CloudFormation   

@navid wrote:

I have an existing CloudFormation that is managed by a Python library (troposphere) and now I want to start using Serverless for managing my API Gateway and Lambda functions. Do you recommend converting the existing CloudFormation template to Serverless? Is it going to be painful to manage the stack using two different libraries?

          How can I verify the CloudFormation changes before deployment?

Serverless just decided to drop all but one DynamoDB table, how can I check what modifications it's planning on making before I run deploy?

As far as I can tell there's no --dryrun on serverless deploy and I can't find an option to output the CloudFormation json.

          Cannot use multiple $file variable in Resources section of serverless.yml   

@nclow wrote:

This feature request indicates that it should be possible to include multiple files in the Resources section. I want to do this to better manage a large file with hundreds of resources in it.

However, doing this

resources:
  Resources:
    - ${{file(1.yaml)}}
    - ${{file(2.yaml)}}

Results in a template with the Resources key set to a list, which looks like

"Resources": [
    {
      "Resource1": {
        "Type": "AWS::Logs::SubscriptionFilter",
         ...
          
      }
    },
    ...

Which fails when the template is uploaded to CloudFormation:

  Error --------------------------------------------------
 
  The CloudFormation template is invalid: Template format error: Any Resources member must be an object.

What is the proper way to use this feature? I've tried this dozens of different ways in multiple versions of serverless and using $file in the Resources section always results in the variable not being interpreted, interpreted wrongly as in this bug report, or producing invalid output in the CF template.

4 incidents, only 1 at night. 2 others were drivers not looking when they pulled out of driveways, and one was a guy on his cellphone who never even looked my way as he sped past me. In the nighttime incident the car was going way too fast on Willow and actually brushed me. I've never made a complaint. Three of the drivers never stopped, and I suspect they had no idea they'd almost hit someone. They just kept going and by the time I looked up they were gone, so there was nothing to report. The one driver that did stop was pulling out of the garage on 4th by St Mary's, and almost hit my stroller. She hit her brakes and I jerked the stroller out of her way pretty much simultaneously. I could see by her face she was almost as scared as I was, and I let things drop. She had been careless in not looking before she pulled out, and I had been careless in not looking into the drive before I walked across it (my head was off in the clouds). Mine was IMO the greater fault, so there was nothing to pursue.

          Offering data backup for clients!   

This is a really excellent idea, and a great way to expand your existing services, while adding some additional revenue to your business.

Most backup services offer many of the same features, when it comes to encryption and security.
And they all generally function in the same manner.

Where white label backup services really start to differentiate is with branding, licensing, pricing structure, storage costs, and most importantly support.

These are areas that will impact you the most in determining whether this is going to be sustainable and profitable.

WholesaleBackup provides 2 white label backup solutions.

You can host the backups yourself on your own server or choose to host the backups on inexpensive cloud storage from S3 or Google. Around 2 cents per Gig. Either way you own the storage and only pay the straight cost of the storage with no markups. This is significantly different, where others will force you into their storage and you pay higher storage rates to use the software.

WholesaleBackup allows you to fully brand the backup client no extra fees, no co-branding.

You also get a backup management web console where you monitor and manage all of your backup accounts in a central location.

With WholesaleBackup you pay only 3 dollars per client license ( starting at 50 seats) you can back up as much or little as you want and your licensing costs stay the same.

WholesaleBackup is a USA based company and the support team is responsive and lives in the US. All partnerships receive free unlimited support.

You can get started on a free trial, it only takes a few minutes to setup your own custom branded backup clients and start testing and deploying your own cloud backup services. https://wholesalebackup.com

Good luck!

CERN Breaking Records With Unprecedented Number of Particles In Record Time 
CERN is the evil program which will literally open the "gates of hell".   Our Lady said to wear her scapular and pray her rosary but how FEW take this message seriously.  I guess that is why 3/4 of the world will die in the 3 days of darkness...
Apocalypse 9: 1-5 with St. Jerome's commentary: "And the fifth angel sounded the trumpet, and I saw a star fall from heaven upon the earth, and there was given to him the key of the bottomless pit. [2] And he opened the bottomless pit: and the smoke of the pit arose, as the smoke of a great furnace; and the sun and the air were darkened with the smoke of the pit. [3] And from the smoke of the pit there came out locusts upon the earth. And power was given to them, as the scorpions of the earth have power: [4] And it was commanded them that they should not hurt the grass of the earth, nor any green thing, nor any tree: but only the men who have not the sign of God on their foreheads. [5] And it was given unto them that they should not kill them; but that they should torment them five months: and their torment was as the torment of a scorpion when he striketh a man. 

[1] "A star fall": This may mean the fall and apostasy of great and learned men from the true faith. Or a whole nation falling into error and separating from the church, not having the sign of God in their foreheads.
[1] "The key of the bottomless pit": That is, to the angel, not to the fallen star. To this angel was given the power, which is here signified by a key, of opening hell.
[3] "There came out locusts": These may be devils in Antichrist's time, having the appearance of locusts, but large and monstrous, as here described. 




An unprecedented number of particles has been reached in record time. Just five weeks after physics resumed, the Large Hadron Collider (LHC) is already running at full throttle. On Wednesday 28 June 2017 the LHC established yet another record-breaking high, with 2556 proton bunches circulating in each direction of the accelerator. The beams in the LHC are made up of bunches of protons, spaced seven metres (25 nanoseconds) apart, with each one containing more than 100 billion protons. 2556 is the maximum possible number of bunches that can be reached with the beam preparation method currently used.
The particle bunches that are delivered to the LHC are prepared and accelerated by a chain of four accelerators. Since last year, a new method to group and split the bunches enables the particles to be squeezed even closer together. With an equal number of protons, the beam diameter was reduced by 40 per cent. Denser bunches means a higher probability of collisions at the centre of the experiments.
This success has led to a new luminosityrecord for the LHC of 1.58x1034 cm-2s-1. This figure may not mean much to most of us, but it's crucial for the accelerator's experts. It measures the number of potential collisions per second and per unit of area . This new peak luminosity surpasses initial expectations defined by the original designs for the LHC, which hoped it could reach a maximum of 1x1034cm-2s-1.
A higher luminosity means more collisions for the experiments collecting data: in just a few weeks ATLAS and CMS stored more than 6 inverse femtobarns, over an eighth of the total anticipated for the whole year.
Nevertheless, the operators cannot sit on their hands. Many parameters can be tuned to further improve the luminosity.
Next week, the LHC and its experiments will take a short break for the first of the two technical stops planned for the year. This will be an opportunity to carry out maintenance.

THE THREE DAYS OF DARKNESS

 Marie-Julie announced the three days of darkness during which the infernal powers will be loosed and will execute all the enemies of God. "The crisis will explode suddenly; the punishments will be shared by all and will succeed one another without interruption ..." [January 4, 1884] "The three days of darkness will be on a THURSDAY, FRIDAY AND SATURDAY. Days of the Most Holy Sacrament, of the Cross and Our Lady ... three days less one night."

"The earth will be covered in darkness", says Our Lady on 20th of September 1882, "AND HELL WILL BE LOOSED ON EARTH. Thunder and lightning will cause those who have no faith or trust in My Power, to die of fear."

"During these three days of terrifying darkness, no windows must be opened, because no one will be able to see the earth and the terrible colour it will have in those days of punishment without dying at once ..."

"The sky will be on fire, the earth will split ... During these three days of darkness let the blessed candle be lighted everywhere, no other light will shine ..."

"NO ONE OUTSIDE A SHELTER.. will survive. The earth will shake as at the judgment and fear will be great. Yes, We will listen to the prayers of your friends; NOT ONE WILL PERISH. We will need them to publish the glory of the Cross ..." [December 8, 1882]

"THE CANDLES OF BLESSED WAX ALONE WILL GIVE LIGHT during this horrible darkness. ONE CANDLE alone will be enough for the duration of this night of hell ... In the homes of the wicked and blasphemers these candles will give NO LIGHT."

"And Our Lady states: "Everything will shake except the piece of furniture on which the blessed candle is burning. This will not shake. You will all gather around with the crucifix and my blessed picture. This is what will keep away this terror."

"During this darkness the devils and the wicked will take on THE MOST HIDEOUS SHAPES ... red clouds like blood will move across the sky. The crash of the thunder will shake the earth and sinister lightning will streak the heavens out of season. The earth will be shaken to its foundations. The sea will rise, its roaring waves will spread over the continent. .."

 "THE EARTH WILL BECOME LIKE A VAST CEMETERY. The bodies of the wicked and the just will cover the ground."

"Three-quarters of the population of the globe will disappear. Half the population of France will be destroyed."


"And I say to thee: That thou art Peter; and upon this rock I will build my church (Catholic), and the gates of hell shall not prevail against it."
[Matthew 16:18]

          9/11 Simplified...   
9/11 Simplified...
James Perloff

Yes, Virginia, there really were hijackers on the 9/11 planes—but not the ones we were told

This post is not intended to be taken dogmatically; I do not insist that its conclusions are correct; they are just presented for consideration.
In this post, though they have already been much discussed and debated within alternative media, I’ll address three major components of the 9/11 controversy: (1) what brought down the Twin Towers; (2) what initially struck the Towers; and (3) what happened to the original planes and passengers.
However, there is a valid complaint often voiced in the Truth Movement, which runs like this: “I really don’t care how 9/11 was done and I’m tired of all the infighting about this. What really matters is, we know the government’s story is bogus, so we need to focus on identifying the criminals and bringing them to justice.”



I consider this a very legitimate grievance. But I don’t think we can separate “who” from “how.” When a prosecutor presents his case in a courtroom, he doesn’t name a crime’s perpetrator without describing how the crime was carried out. Nor does he present the jury with the crime’s details and methodology without identifying the suspect(s).
So let’s tackle both how and who, and we’ll start with “who,” because doing so clarifies a lot of “how.”

The Who

What’s wrong with the following math equations?
3 + 3 = 68
98 – 7 = 2
58 X 7 = 35
What’s wrong, of course, are the 8s. Take away the 8s and each equation reads correctly.
I believe that, when it comes to resolving the mystery of how 9/11 was executed, the Truth Movement suffers from a major “8” (in addition to any individual doses of cognitive dissonance that have been deliberately sprinkled in). I believe that “8” is:
9/11 was an inside job.
I believe a far more correct rendering is:
9/11 was an outside job, done by Israeli operatives, but with consent and cooperation at the highest levels of the U.S. government.
To understand this, it may be helpful to compare Israel’s vicious 1967 attack on the USS Liberty. It is well understood that President Lyndon B. Johnson and Defense Secretary Robert McNamara fully cooperated, by twice recalling U.S. fighters that the Sixth Fleet had sent to rescue the Liberty, and later by ordering a cover-up. However, at the physical operational level, the attack was carried out by Israelis, not by Americans in an “inside job.”
OK, but what’s the evidence that Israel was behind 9/11? By far the best summary I’ve seen is the WikiSpooks post 9-11/Israel Did It. (Incidentally, as many of my regular readers know, I’m half-Jewish on my father’s side, so knee-jerk charges against me of “anti-Semitism” can be stuffed in the appropriate place.)
A sampling of highlights:
• The five notorious “dancing Israelis” who filmed the Twin Towers’ destruction, after which they celebrated, high-fiving each other and even photographing themselves flicking a lighter against the backdrop of the smoking ruins. They were arrested after driving off in a van whose license number was reported by a neighbor. Later it was revealed that at least two of them were agents of Mossad, Israel’s intelligence service.
• Michael Chertoff was put in charge of the Justice Department’s investigation of 9/11, despite his mother having been a Mossad agent, and Chertoff himself reportedly holding dual citizenship in Israel. Chertoff released hundreds of arrested Israelis back to Israel, including the notorious “dancing Israelis.”
• Quoting Wikispooks: “The company that ran airport security at all three airports where the alleged hijackings originated was Huntsleigh USA, a wholly owned subsidiary of ICTS International and owned by Ezra Harel and Menachem Atzmon —both Israeli Jews.”
• ”Lucky Larry” Silverstein, who became the new owner of the World Trade Center less than two months before the attacks, and earned an insurance payout of nearly $5 billion on his $124 million investment (after missing the disaster due to a fortuitous doctor’s appointment on the morning of 9/11) was such good friends with Benjamin Netanyahu that the Israeli newspaper Haaretz reported in November 2001: “Every Sunday afternoon, New York time, Netanyahu would call Silverstein. It made no difference what the subject was or where Netanyahu was, he would always call.”1
• Supported by funds from Israel’s government, Zim Israel Navigational was the world’s ninth largest shipping firm. It had its American headquarters in the World Trade Center—until about two weeks before 9/11. Zim then moved its offices and employees to a new building, claiming rent was cheaper there.
• The 9/11 Commission’s executive director was Philip Zelikow, a dual U.S.-Israeli citizen. Why should anyone with sworn loyalty to a foreign nation be entrusted with such a position?
• On 9/11, the chairman of George W. Bush’s Defense Policy Board was Richard Perle, whom the National Security Agency had caught spying on the U.S. for Israel in 1970.
• On 9/11, employees of the Israeli instant messaging company Odigo received messages two hours before the attack, warning them not to be in the World Trade Center.
• Ptech, a software firm linked to Israeli intelligence, had provided vital software being used by the FAA, FBI, and U.S. armed forces on 9/11.
• On 9/11, seated in row 9 of Flight 11 (directly behind “Mohammed Atta”) was Danny Lewin, a former captain in the IDF (Israeli Defense Force), and who served in the Sayeret Matkal, which specializes in counter-terrorism, hostage rescue, and assassination. Lewin could bench-press 315 pounds and “was trained to kill terrorists with a pen or a credit card, or just his bare hands.”2 In 2000, he had himself photographed in front of panels resembling the Twin Towers, wearing a Swatch Watch whose model name was “Hijacker.” The hour, minute and second hands were all on the “11” and the date was set to the 11th, even though the picture was taken on the 10th.




The odds against all four time indicators being on “11” are more than 20,000 to 1. Times the odds of the watch model being named “Hijacker”: unfathomable.
That’s just a small sampling of the evidence that Israel did 9/11. When police detectives try to solve a murder, among the first questions asked is: Who benefitted from the crime? In 9/11’s case, Middle Eastern Muslims did not benefit—the U.S. has been making war on them for 16 years. America did not benefit—we’re suffering the casualties and trillions in costs from the wars, as well as degradation of our liberties in the name of security. The only beneficiary was Israel—her enemies have been neutralized one by one, courtesy America, in fulfillment of the Greater Israel plan, with Iran reputedly next on the hit list.
That’s the main who; let’s talk about the how.

(1) How were the Twin Towers destroyed?

Within alternative media are three major schools of thought about this. One is nano-thermite, largely advocated by Architects and Engineers for 9/11 Truth. Another is Directed Energy Weapons (DEWs), whose foremost advocate is Dr. Judy Wood. The third is nuclear devices, which I and a few others support. Let me be clear: I have friends in all three camps, and differing opinions on this matter don’t impede our friendships.
I’ve laid out why I believe the Twin Towers’ collapse was a nuclear event in an extensive blog post. To minimize redundancy, I’ll shrink this to a “top ten” list:

TOP TEN REASONS THE WTC COLLAPSE WAS A NUCLEAR EVENT

1. Thyroid cancer occurs at above-average frequency in 9/11 first responders more than any other type of cancer (see full post for citations). This is a signature of nuclear bombs; they emit iodine-131, which collects in the thyroid, often causing cancer. (This is why some people keep potassium iodide tablets on hand—to protect their thyroid glands in case of a nuclear attack.)
2. World Trade Center dust samples examined by the United States Geological Survey (USGS) found Uranium, Strontium, Barium, Thorium, and other products of nuclear fission, in high concentrations that only an atomic blast could explain. Although the Survey avoided calling attention to the significance, William Tahil vetted it in his pioneering 2006 book Ground Zero: The Nuclear Demolition of the World Trade Centre. (The phrase “ground zero,” incidentally, had only been applied to nuclear detonation sites prior to 9/11.)
3. There was molten steel underneath the rubble of the World Trade Center, whose fires kept burning for over three months. Extraordinary heat is yet another signature of a nuclear bomb.
(Note: I’m aware that molten steel was seen at a corner of the South Tower before its collapse; I don’t doubt that pre-planted explosives were in the Towers, probably including the incendiary thermite, but I don’t believe these explosives were what destroyed the WTC. To clarify, each Tower had six basement levels, and the thesis of my full post—which I had excellent assistance with—is that each Tower was destroyed by a suitcase nuke positioned at the lowest point in either building: the services pits beneath elevator 50. This was the only elevator that ran the full length of either Tower, and the only elevator whose service pits were carved into the bedrock beneath the World Trade Center. This location would make the ideal “launching pad” for a nuke, as the bedrock would contain the sideways and downward force of a nuclear explosion, which would follow the path of least resistance up through the shaft. See the full post for diagrams.)
4. The Towers did not simply “fall,” they exploded, throwing chunks of steel weighing multiple tons hundreds of feet. Check, for example, this piece that embedded itself in the American Express Building across the street:

No exotic weapons are needed to explain this. A nuclear bomb is the most powerful explosive known.
5. The Towers’ inner contents were vaporized: no furniture, filing cabinets (except one), computers, or toilets survived. All turned into dust. Even the buildings’ concrete became dust, instead of falling as chunks of debris. The vaporization, of course, included the people inside (whole bodies that were found belonged to people who jumped before the Towers disintegrated). Not only is a nuclear bomb the most powerful explosive known, its blast—unlike conventional explosives—endures for several seconds, enabling it to inflict considerably more damage.
6. At the times of the two Tower “collapses,” seismographs at Columbia University’s Lamont-Doherty Earth Observatory in Palisades, New York, recorded enormous off-the-chart spikes consistent with huge explosions.


This shot of the South Tower exploding caught a huge singular upward burst of energy.
7. A nuclear blast explains the damage to the rest of the World Trade Center. Buildings 5 and 7 suffered enormous fires, and building 6 was cratered out. These phenomena could not have begun before the Towers’ destruction; otherwise, videos of the burning Towers would have shown additional smoke plumes, and cameras would have panned to the blazes.
Nuclear blasts originating at the lowest levels of the Twin Towers may provide the answer. Underground the World Trade Center was interconnected by pipes, not only for sewage, but a 3-foot-wide storm water drainage system.
Any building’s place at greatest risk for flooding is its lowest point. For the Twin Towers, this would have been Elevator 50’s service pits. From here flood water would be pumped through pipes to the 36-inch storm drain. Thus atomic blasts here would not only follow the path of least resistance through Elevator 50’s shaft, but through the 36-inch storm water drain, traveling through the underground pipes and shooting up through buildings 5, 6 and 7, igniting them. Falling debris could not have caused the raging internal fires seen in the smaller buildings; edifices outside the World Trade Center (American Express Building, Winter Garden Atrium) were heavily impacted by debris, but they did not catch fire. THEY WERE NOT CONNECTED TO THE WTC’S UNDERGROUND DRAINAGE SYSTEM.
Please see my full post for elaboration and documentation of the above point.
8. On 9/11, New Yorkers fled two terrifying dust clouds that engulfed the area surrounding the WTC. Anyone who watches videos of nuclear bombs detonating will see that they create sprawling ground-level clouds. Although building demolitions also routinely make dust clouds, the 9/11 ones seemed to have had a life of their own.

Chris Bollyn "9-11 Deception: Greater Killsrael"  


          After Sy Hersh's Bombshell Investigation, Why Won't Media Tell the Real Story of Trump's Military Strike in Syria?   
Western media are continuing to do their part in the propaganda war on Syria.

If you wish to understand the degree to which the supposedly free western media are constructing a world of half-truths and deceptions to manipulate their audiences, keeping us uninformed and pliant, there could hardly be a better case study than their treatment of Pulitzer Prize-winning investigative journalist Seymour Hersh.

All of these highly competitive, for-profit, scoop-seeking media outlets separately took identical decisions: first to reject Hersh’s latest investigative report, and then to studiously ignore it once it was published in Germany last Sunday. They have continued to maintain an absolute radio silence on his revelations, even as over the past few days they have given a great deal of attention to two stories on the very issue Hersh’s investigation addresses.

These two stories, given such prominence in the western media, are clearly intended to serve as “spoilers” to his revelations, even though none of these publications has actually informed their readers of his original investigation. We are firmly in looking-glass territory.

So what did Hersh’s investigation reveal? His sources in the U.S. intelligence establishment told him the official narrative that Syria’s Bashar Assad had dropped deadly sarin gas on the town of Khan Sheikhoun on April 4 was incorrect. Instead, they said, a Syrian plane dropped a bomb on a meeting of jihadi fighters that triggered secondary explosions in a storage depot, releasing a toxic cloud of chemicals that killed civilians nearby.

One might assume that an alternative narrative of the events would be of great interest to the media, given that Donald Trump approved a military strike on Syria based on the official narrative. Hersh’s version suggests that Trump acted against the intelligence advice he received from his own officials, in a highly dangerous move that not only grossly violated international law but might have dragged Assad’s main ally, Russia, into the fray. The Syrian arena has the potential to trigger a serious confrontation between the world’s two major nuclear powers.

But in fact, the western media were supremely uninterested in the story. Hersh, once considered the journalist’s journalist, went hawking his investigation around the U.S. and UK media to no avail. In the end, he could find a home for his revelations only in Germany, in the publication Welt am Sonntag.

There are a couple of possible, though unlikely, reasons all English-language publications ignored Hersh’s story. Maybe they had evidence his inside intelligence was wrong. If so, they have yet to provide it. A rebuttal would require acknowledging Hersh’s story, and none seems willing to do that.

Or maybe the media thought it was old news and would no longer interest their readers. It would be difficult to sustain such an interpretation, but at least it has an air of plausibility—except for everything that has happened since Hersh published last Sunday. His story has spawned two clear “spoiler” responses from those desperate to uphold the official narrative. Hersh’s revelations may have been entirely uninteresting to the western media, but strangely they have sent Washington into crisis mode.

Of course, no U.S. official has addressed Hersh’s investigation directly, which might have drawn attention to it and forced western media to reference it. Instead, Washington has sought to deflect attention from Hersh’s alternative narrative and shore up the official one through misdirection. That alone should raise the alarm that we are being manipulated, not informed.

The first spoiler, made in the immediate wake of Hersh’s story, was statements from the Pentagon and White House warning that the U.S. had evidence Assad was planning yet another chemical attack on his people and that Washington would respond harshly if he did so.

Here is how the Guardian reported the U.S. threats:

The U.S. said on Tuesday that it had observed preparations for a possible chemical weapons attack at a Syrian air base allegedly involved in a sarin attack in April following a warning from the White House that the Syrian regime would ‘pay a heavy price’ for further use of the weapons.

On Friday, the second spoiler emerged. Two unnamed diplomats “confirmed” that a report by the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) had found that some of the victims from Khan Sheikhoun showed signs of poisoning by sarin or sarin-like substances.

There are obvious reasons to be mighty suspicious of these stories. The findings of OPCW were already known and had been discussed for some time. There was absolutely nothing newsworthy about them.

There are also well-known problems with the findings. There was no “chain of custody”—neutral oversight—of the bodies that were presented to the organization in Turkey, as Scott Ritter, a former weapons inspector in Iraq, has noted. Any number of interested parties could have contaminated the bodies before they reached OPCW. For that reason, OPCW has not concluded that the Assad regime was responsible for the traces of sarin. In the world of real news, only such a finding—that Assad was responsible—should have made the OPCW report interesting again to the media.

Similarly, by going public with their threats against Assad, the Pentagon and White House did not increase the deterrence on Assad, making it less likely he would use gas in the future. That could have been achieved much more effectively with private warnings to the Russians, who have massive leverage over Assad. These new warnings were meant not for Assad but for western publics, to bolster the official narrative that Hersh’s investigation had thrown into doubt.

In fact, the U.S. threats increase, rather than reduce, the chances of a new chemical weapons attack. Other anti-Assad actors now have a strong incentive to use chemical weapons in false-flag operation to implicate Assad, knowing that the U.S. has committed itself to intervention. On any reading, the U.S. statements were reckless—or malicious—in the extreme and likely to bring about the exact opposite of what they were supposed to achieve.

But beyond this, there was something even more troubling about these two stories. That these official claims were published so unthinkingly in major outlets is bad enough. But what is unconscionable is the media’s continuing blackout of Hersh’s investigation when it speaks directly to the two latest news reports.

No serious journalist could write up either story, according to any accepted norms of journalistic practice, and not make reference to Hersh’s claims. They are absolutely relevant to these stories. In fact, more than that, the intelligence sources he cites are not only relevant but are the reason these two stories have been suddenly propelled to the top of the news agenda.

Any publication that has covered either the White House-Pentagon threats or the rehashing of the OPCW report and has not mentioned Hersh’s revelations is writing nothing less than propaganda in service of a western foreign policy agenda trying to bring about the illegal overthrow of the Syrian government. And so far that appears to include every single U.S. and UK mainstream newspaper and TV station.

Actress Kasumi Arimura, who has had countless offers to appear in movies and dramas, has also seen an increase in her TV commercial exposure.
"She might even surpass Emi Takei and Aya Ueto as the new queen of commercials" -- this has become a common phrase within the industry.


Arimura also showed a very bright disposition towards the staff during the shoot of her latest commercial. And at this rate, she might surpass Rena Nounen and Ai Hashimoto's popularity.

It feels like she's accepting any kind of project she can get her hands on in order to recover from the damage done by her scandal with the Johnny's talent. And for that reason, she seems to have this cheap image attached to her, and most of the time she's only like the 6th most prominent character in dramas. She still hasn't been blessed with a heroine role in a primetime drama.

I don't think she is. She was a prostitute in Boku no Natsuyasumi, and she even played a role of someone falling in love with her actual brother. In Tsurukame Josanin, she played a teenager who got pregnant, while in Starman, she had this torrid kissing scene with Jun Kunimura, so she's actually been playing a lot of dirty roles too.

For all those people who think that Trump's tweets are brilliant at reaching the public and throwing his opponents off balance or whatever other bit of analysis used to show that somehow he's playing three-dimensional chess while the rest of the world can't even set up the checker board, is this really a set of tweets that makes you proud that he's your president?




These morning tweets follow other tweets touting ones supporting policy actions by his administration and the GOP. Does he think anyone will pay attention to any of that when he's tweeting comments on a morning show's appearance and the show's ratings? It's as if he's taken a master a class on self-sabotage.

Isn't he supposed to be in the middle of trying to help a GOP repeal of Obamacare?

Remember when conservatives ridiculed Obama interview talking to GloZell, the woman who is mainly known for eating cereal while sitting in a bathub of milk or going on Between Two Ferns? Well, was any of that less respectful of the office of the presidency than such tweets? I have come to regard Trump's tweets as a verbal expression of his id. That is the level he operates at and we get a glimpse at what impulses control him through Twitter. All his advisers urging him to focus on policy and presenting an image of gravitas are the ego trying to mediate between those impulses and reality. They might win out for hours, even days sometimes, but the id is there ready to take over.

There used to be a time when Republicans claimed that character mattered in the presidency. Today...not so much.

Canada thinks it can control the Internet.
The Supreme Court of Canada ruled against Google on Wednesday in a closely-watched intellectual property case over whether judges can apply their own country's laws to all of the Internet.

In a 7-2 decision, the court agreed a British Columbia judge had the power to issue an injunction forcing Google to scrub search results about pirated products not just in Canada, but everywhere else in the world too.

Those siding with Google, including civil liberties groups, had warned that allowing the injunction would harm free speech, setting a precedent to let any judge anywhere order a global ban on what appears on search engines. The Canadian Supreme Court, however, downplayed this objection and called Google's fears "theoretical."
Charles C. W. Cooke comments,
That amusing episode of The I.T. Crowd notwithstanding, “the Internet” is not a single black box somewhere in London, but a massively decentralized network of networks that, while conforming to a few agreed-upon technical specifications, gives new meaning to the word “diffuse.” Or, put another way, “the Internet” is a patchwork quilt of cables, satellites, switches, service providers, cell phones, desktops, laptops, web-servers, and protocols that, taken together, forms the sprawling web to which we are all so accustomed. The beauty of this arrangement is that anybody can participate. Want to be the next Facebook? To start with, at least, all you’ll need is a domain name, an internet connection, and a computer, and . . . that’s it. Though there are certain breakpoints (IP allocation, root DNS, etc.), there is no central permission structure that newcomers have to navigate. It’s open. It’s wild. It’s wonderful.

Now, this is not to say that censorship is impossible. It’s not. If a government wishes to block access to a particular site within the physical borders over which it has jurisdiction, it can do so. Likewise, websites and services that contradict local law can be legally removed, and, if it so wishes, a government can demand that any organization operating on a network within its borders must conform to its rules. What it can’t do, however, is export those judgments abroad.

Suppose that I, a permanent resident of the United States, were to host a website that contained speech that was banned in, say, Germany. Certainly, the German authorities could prevent Germans from seeing my site. And, if anyone chose to mirror my site on server inside Germany, they could shut that person down quite quickly. But they couldn’t have me shut down in America, and they couldn’t prevent people in other countries from accessing my site over the web. My server would be in America, connected to a network in America, subject to the law in America, and guaranteed the protections to which Americans are entitled. The German government, annoyed as it might be, would have to accept that....

And that, ultimately, is why the Canadian Court’s decision is so hilarious. I understand why people are worried about the idea — if taken seriously, it would give any less-free-than-America country an effective veto over the First Amendment. But they shouldn’t fret too much: The judges can say what they like, but their edict is simply unenforceable. If it wishes to do so, the government of Canada can prevail upon Google to abide by its rules within Canada. In addition, it can regulate the web in Canada to prevent access to sites it dislike. But it can’t force Google in America or France or Australia or Singapore to do a single goddamned thing. And thank goodness for that, eh?
I hope that he is correct, but we've seen the EU slapping a $2.7 billion fine on Google because the EU thinks it violates antitrust for Google to promote Google Shopping sites over other shopping sites. I'm not sure what there is about a FREE service like Google that the Europeans don't understand. Are European citizens actually hurt by Google giving them a free shopping search engine and then putting their items at the top? Would they prefer to pay for their search engines? Please, just keep your hands off Google. As more countries try and figure out ways to make money off of fining Google, they should consider the unintended consequences.
“The EU has effectively decided that some companies have become too big to innovate,” Robert Atkinson, president of the Information Technology and Innovation Foundation, a Washington-based think tank, said in a statement following the Google Shopping decision. “The EU’s actions have created a cloud of uncertainty that will make large tech companies overly cautious about making changes to the user experience and service offerings that would benefit consumers.”

Jonathan Tobin applies Occam's Razor
to explain why Obama didn't do more about Russia's attempts to interfere in our election last year.
But the real problem here is not so much Barack Obama’s failure to act as the most plausible reason for his inaction: Vladimir Putin’s capers didn’t impact the election results.
Despite the efforts by Democrats to blame Russia for Hillary Clinton's loss and their frustration that Obama didn't do more about it, there really is no evidence that the WikiLeaks revelations from John Podesta's emails had any effect on the course of the election.
But there’s a simpler, even more plausible explanation for Obama’s inaction: The president saw that the hacking was having almost no impact on the course of the campaign and thus wasn’t going to mess with the results. Far from the crime of the century, it was, at worst, a minor annoyance to Clinton that Obama obviously felt didn’t warrant a major dustup with Putin.

It’s true that Russia’s actions were outrageous and deserved a strong US response, both then and now. It can also be argued that the public had a right to know about it. But it was only after Clinton lost and she and her supporters began searching for excuses that Russia’s actions were considered an important factor in the outcome.

While Putin was way out of line, the impact of the WikiLeaks document dumps on Clinton’s candidacy was marginal at best.

The contents of the Democratic National Committee e-mails were embarrassing to Podesta and then-DNC chair Debbie Wasserman Schultz, who wound up losing her job after proof of DNC collusion with Clinton against Bernie Sanders was produced. But there was almost nothing in those documents that related directly to Clinton, let alone being enough to influence voters.

Every WikiLeaks story was also almost immediately overshadowed by other, more damaging gaffes or revelations about Trump, such as his attack on a Gold Star family or the release of the infamous “Access Hollywood” tape. Nothing the Russians did matched the damage done by either of those Trump disasters.
Instead of looking for some external events or action, just admit that Hillary was a lousy candidate. That should actually be comforting to the Democrats. With such a compromised candidate whom so many Americans just never liked, they still won the popular vote and came really close to winning the states that put Trump over the top. If they can pick a better candidate in 2020, and can make an appeal for the voters they lost in the Rust Belt, chances are pretty strong that they'll win that year. They should be more concerned about forging a message that doesn't repel independents and those voters they lost in 2016. That's their real challenge and focusing all the time on Russia, Russia, Russia won't help them achieve that goal.


Good to know.
Tell your friendly environmentalist activist. But they're not really interested.
The benefits of fracking far outweigh its costs not only economically, but environmentally, a Stanford University geophysicist said Friday.

After teaching geophysics at Stanford for 30 years Mark Zoback took the helm of Stanford's new Natural Gas Initiative three years ago, he said, because of gas's environmental benefits.

"We did it because there were so many important and obvious environmental benefits to the utilization of natural gas," Zoback said. "So it’s somewhat ironic to be asked to argue for the notion that these benefits outweigh the environmental costs, when it’s the environmental benefits that got me into this business in the first place."

Zoback's remarks opened the annual debate at Stanford's Silicon Valley Energy Summit, and were swiftly challenged by representatives of the Sierra Club and the Natural Resources Defense Counci
Zoback argued that natural gas can replace coal and "dirty diesel" at significant scale throughout the world, supporting economic growth while slashing carbon emissions. (When burned, natural gas emits about half the CO2 that coal does).

The Senate has some really dumb rules. And the minority party can use them to slow everything down to a standstill. Chuck Schumer is taking advantage of every tool that the rules provide.
Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer used an upper chamber procedure Wednesday to block a national security briefing hosted by the Senate Judiciary Committee, irritating Judiciary Chairman Chuck Grassley.

The rule that Schumer had invoked, which he has been exercising the use of over the past two weeks, blocks Senate committee business from happening two hours after the Senate convenes session for the day. Schumer has consistently used the procedure as a way to delay business in Senate to make demands on Republicans on the health care bill.

The rarely-used tactic has cut short a committee hearing on free speech, stopped a hearing on Russian meddling in the U.S. elections and blocked a mark-up to advance bipartisan anti-human trafficking legislation....

Grassley had sent a joint letter with subcommittee judiciary chairman Lindsey Graham to the FBI Tuesday requesting all documents related to the FBI FISA surveillance requests on the Russia investigation.

“Today, the Judiciary Committee was set to hear from senior intelligence officials about highly sensitive intelligence gathering authorities that will soon require action from Congress. It’s disturbing and reckless for the Minority Leader to block the briefing. We’ve seen too many recent reminders of how unsafe the world is today. This is no time to play politics with our national security,” he said.
If they could use the nuclear option to get rid of a much more prominent rule concerning filibusters of Supreme Court nominees, why not use it to get rid of this stupid rule. If it's a "rarely-used tactic," no one except the angry members of the minority party will miss it.

I had so much fun last night. I'm visiting my daughters in D.C. and we went to the Nats-Cubs game. I haven't seen a live baseball game in about 50 years since I was a kid and we'd go to the Cubs games. So I scheduled my trip to catch the game. After falling behind in the seventh inning, I thought it was pretty hopeless for the Cubs based on the way they've been playing this year. But they rallied in the ninth inning to go ahead on a triple by Jon Jay. It was so exciting and I could celebrate with all the other Cubs fans in the stadium including a cute little girl, about 10 years old, sitting with her family of Cubs fans in front of me who told her parents that John Jay had written five of the Federalist Papers. Exactly right and the Cubs' Jon Jay was a hero tonight. Go Federalists!


What a blast! And then as walked out of the stadium and came back on the Metro and hear all the Nationals fans complaining about the Nationals' bullpen. Eh, they're still doing well. I'm just hoping that the Cubs are recovering their mojo. At least their closer, Wade Davis, another historically relevant name on the Cubs roster

          Year One of the Chris Holtmann Era Will Be Painful but Consistent With Precedent   
Chris Holtmann is in a for a bumpy first year which is simply part of the rebuilding process.

Chris Holtmann replaced Thad Matta as Ohio State's head coach exactly 23 days ago. 

In that window, he's officially brought on his former Butler assistant coaches, welcomed former Butler signee and Ohio hooper Kyle Young, retained David Egelhoff as director of basketball operations, announced Dave Richardson will vacate the strength and conditioning role, first suspended then booted redshirt freshman swingman Derek Funderburk, and announced incoming freshman Braxton Beverly will not be a Buckeye. 

In addition, he and the staff have been evaluating players and making offers right and left. 

With all that activity, he now sports a roster with nine scholarship players, one of which belongs to a former walk-on. 

The moral of those last three paragraphs? Get ready for some spectacular turbulence this season. Embrace it as part of the rebuilding process. It's unavoidable after Gene Smith unfortunately, but finally, saved Thad Matta from himself. 

How bad the on-court output will be in Year One remains to be seen but for context, I was curious how past Buckeye head coaches fared in their own first year. As you'd expect, for the most part, the results weren't much to write home about. 

Here's the goods dating back to Fred Taylor's arrival in 1958:

INAUGURAL SEASON SUCCESS OF PAST OSU HOOPS COACHES
SEASON HEAD COACH OVERALL RECORD CONFERENCE RECORD POSTSEASON?
1958-59 FRED TAYLOR 11-11 7-7 (5TH) NO
1976-77 ELDON MILLER 9-18 4-14 (10TH) NO
1986-87 GARY WILLIAMS 20-13 9-9 (6TH) NCAA 2ND ROUND
1989-90 RANDY AYERS 17-13 10-8 (6TH) NCAA 2ND ROUND
1997-98 JIM O'BRIEN 8-22 1-15 (11TH) NO
2004-05 THAD MATTA 20-12 8-8 (6TH) NO - INELIGIBLE

1958-59: FRED TAYLOR

A former OSU baseball player who went on to play professionally before returning to Ohio State as an assistant basketball coach, Fred Taylor took over as head coach the following season. 

His first year in Columbus was meh as the Buckeyes turned out an 11-11 record including 7-7 in the conference, good for 5th place and no postseason. 

His first team featured Larry Siegfried (19.6 ppg) Larry Huston (16.4) and Dick Furry (11.5) but not much else. 

Of course that one year of pain was quickly forgotten as the 1959-60 season saw Jerry Lucas (26.3 ppg, 16.4 rpg), Mel Nowell (13.1 ppg) and John Havlicek (12.9 ppg), among others, join Siegfried in a march to the program's one and only national championship. 

OSU would make it to the title game each of the next two seasons but fall both times to Cincinnati. 

1976-77: ELDON MILLER

Fresh off a six-year stint at Western Michigan which produced the program's only MAC championship to that point, Miller took over for Taylor ahead of the 1976-77 season. 

Year one was a total dud as the Buckeyes went 9-18 overall and 4-14 in league play to finish 10th and obviously sat on the postseason sidelines. 

Kelvin Ransey was the star of Miller's first season (13.1 ppg) with an assist from Larry Bolden (11.8 ppg) and Terry Burris (11.0 ppg). 

Year two welcomed Herb Williams (16.7 ppg, 11.4 rpg) alongside Ransey (17.6 ppg) and another newcomer, Ken Page (12.3 ppg), to form a more formidable squad but the end result was still just a 16-11 overall mark which again fell short of any postseason bid. 

Miller would reach the NIT semifinals in year three but things finally clicked in year four as the Buckeyes reached the Sweet Sixteen after going 21-8 overall including a 2nd place finish in the B1G powered by Williams, Ransey, Clark Kellogg and Carter Scott. 

1986-87: GARY WILLIAMS

Dennis Hopson scored at-will in college.

After a four-year stop in Boston College, Gary Williams took over at Ohio State in time for the 1986-87 season. 

With Brad Sellers off to the NBA but Dennis Hopson still in the fold, year one of the Williams era saw the Buckeyes post a 20-13 mark and 9-9 in the B1G (6th) leading to an NCAA tournament appearance which ended in the 2nd round. 

Williams employed a hectic 94-feet of basketball mentality creating a new excitement in St. John Arena which quickly helped him earn love from the fans. 

One of only two OSU coaches to win at least 20 games in their first year, Williams struggled to build on the early success as year two produced an identical 20-13 mark but that was only good enough for an NIT berth ending in the finals while year three slipped to 19-15 and an NIT quarterfinals appearance. 

Williams split for his alma mater, Maryland, the following year. 

1989-90: RANDY AYERS

With Williams understandably leaving Ohio State just three years into his tenure, the school turned to Randy Ayers, giving him his first collegiate head coaching gig. 

Ayers went 17-13 in his first season including 10-8 in league action which led to an NCAA tourney bid ending in the 2nd round. 

Lucky for Ayers the cupboard wasn't bare upon arrival as a kid named Jimmy Jackson (16.1 ppg, 5.5 rpg) teamed with veteran pivot Perry Carter (15.2 ppg, 7.8 rpg), Alex Davis and Mark Baker. A slew of young kids still finding their way included names like Chris Jent, Treg Lee, Jamaal Brown and Bill Robinson. 

The next two years produced a Sweet Sixteen (27-4 overall) and a disappointing run to the Elite Eight (26-6 overall) along with a pair of B1G titles. 

Annnnnd then the wheels fell off (or maybe they were shot out) spectacularly over the next five years. The end. 

1997-98: JIM O'BRIEN

Michael Redd got buckets.

Again massaging that Boston College pipeline, Ohio State tabbed Jim O'Brien as the coach to clean up a program in shambles following Ayers' departure. 

With an almost entirely new starting five highlighted by Michael Redd's arrival, OSU went 8-22 overall and produced one league win in 16 tries. 

The following season, however, with Scoonie Penn now eligible post-transfer to team with Redd and the more-seasoned Ken Johnson and Jason Singleton, along with George Reese, the Buckeyes reached the Final Four. 

O'Brien would make the Dance each of the following three seasons but fail to get beyond the 2nd round before the program eventually slipped into dumpster fire status complete with NCAA penalties. 

While the public embarrassment sucked out loud, O'Brien's activities paved the way for something special.. 

2004-05: THAD MATTA

Most of you remember this era clearly. After arriving at Ohio State via Xavier, Matta took a team ineligible for postseason play to 20 wins including an upset of then No. 1 and undefeated Illinois in a program-defining win

Ohio State finished just 6th in the league that season (8-8) but Matta's guidance had lifted the clouds over the program brought on by O'Brien's misdeeds. 

Matta would reach the Dance's 2nd round in year two after capturing his first B1G title (26-6, 10-4) and year three was even better as the Buckeyes again won the conference championship (34-4, 15-1) and made it all the way to the NCAA title game before falling Florida. 

2017-18: CHRIS HOLTMANN

With just those aforementioned nine scholarship players on the roster, one of which recently shed his walk-on status, it's looking like year one of the Holtmann era will be a rocky ride.

That said, it's a necessary evil for a program hanging on for dear life before his arrival. 

With his assistants in place he just needs to find a new strength and conditioning guy after he chose to not to retain Matta leftover, Dave Richardson. 

While at least one prominent local beat reporter believes Richardson was a convenient fall guy, I couldn't disagree more. The logic from the reporter was that players who wanted to get stronger got stronger. My response to that would be do you think Urban Meyer's strength guy, Mickey Marotti, accepts that type of mind-set from a football player? 

Bottom line, year one will require a case of Rolaids but it should not define Holtmann's tenure based on existing factors and what we've seen from inaugural seasons of past coaches.

There's simply too much to fix.

          If Mobile is not the Future, then What is?   

During 2008, I have prophesied 13 things about Internet Marketing that came to pass in recent years. 8 years passed and I see many of them came true. e.g.

  • Google’s Search Preview (though it did not last long)
  • Instant search (or search-as-you-type)
  • Priority of social media over emails
  • The rise of Tablets (I called them Handhelds, back then)
  • The rise of widgets and connected data
  • Though some of them still have not taken full form, but they are prospectively waiting to be fulfilled:
  • The death of mobile operators
  • Web-based marketing analytics (Bigdata is now showing prospects into this prophecy)
  • TV Channel + Internet + Mobile Subscription coming into one single platform or service (you can find it in my comment)

​Though I am not a Prophet or clairvoyant, I have some predictions for mobile phone or mobility for 5-10 years ahead of 2016:

Mobile may seem like the future, but as the capacity of mobile devices grow, you might see a different scenario in future. Mobile is really not the future, but convergence of various devices, flexible screens and responsiveness of display, cloud computing and cloud OS, and supreme mobility are the actual future. 

When WAP was becoming popular, one friend told me, “This is the future”. But, WAP did not see much light after a few years. As the capacity of the devices increased, WAP was seem unnecessary. Now a days, many people are saying that “Mobile is the Future”. But, I oppose that, since mobile may not remain as THE mobile we know today.

If you look back into the evolution of the devices in your home, then you might see that Cassette Player, VCR, Camera, Radio, and even TV has now converged into one device. It’s really not about making the devices small. The most important factor here is to converge multiple devices into one to offer more utility.  

So, mobile is not the future, convergence is!

If we take this example of the past and apply it on the situations at present, then see that your laptop, mobile, tab, and TV are separate devices. If convergence is to happen, then these devices too will merge into one device or platform. But, how can you get the power and flexibility of a laptop in a mobile phone?  

The answer lies in your TV in the wall and its evolution. See how TV is getting thin day by day. As LCD is already in market, we might see foldable screens in very near future. Samsung and Oppo are competing to roll out foldable screen phones. However, these phones still do have steel backbone, but in future you might backbone-less Amoeba-ic phones (or lets call then Floppy Handhelds). It might be folded into a 6" inch and while spread, you might get 60" screen.  

Moreover, with Smart TVs, more and more people will start browsing the internet in their TVs. So, don’t think that the future relies on small screen, rather you may embrace the screen-size-you-like in future. Therefore, those who have not thought of making their site responsive for various screen size, they are leaving out the big picture.

So, mobile is not the future, flexibility (aka responsive) is!

Dropbox had made our file accessibility more flexible. There also, Google Drive, OneDrive, iCloud, and many others including cloud storage for images. With the help of these cloud storage, you can view your files in any device.  

But, one thing you could not make it remotely accessible like your files, is “The Operating System”. You still need to install operating systems in separate devices. But, in near future, you might not need to install any OS in any device. You can use any Open Source OS like Firefox OS and get access to files and OS Arrangement in any device. Or have the same look and feel as you change from one device to another. All you might need is a browser or window. And you also can save file in the cloud as much as you want.

So, mobile is not the future, cloud computing is! 

Now a days, we carry many devices like flash drive, pen drive, SD cards, etc. But in near future, you may not need to carry anything as long as you have internet access. Any device in public place can be turned into your phone, TV, and/or laptop. As mobility of information and OS gets introduced, you might not need to carry anything with you.

So, mobile is not the future, mobility is!


          LinkedIn Wishlist - Part I: User Generated Search Tags to Create Narrow Searching, Keyword Channels for Profiles, & Virtual Directory of Interest Groups   

This post is actually posted in February 04, 2008. Reposting the article here as a reference for my new upcoming article: LinkedIn Wishlist - Part II: LinkedIn Profile and Page Features.

LinkedIn Wishlist - Part I: User Generated Search Tags to Create Narrow Searching, Keyword Channels for Profiles, & Virtual Directory of Interest Groups

Dear LinkedIn,

Being an open networker, I always try to help my connection by forwarding relevant news, articles, resources, etc. in my network. To do so, I forward mails to the appropriate members in my network by searching them and adding them one by one. 

But, I think Other Filtering Option should be used to make the forwarding mails more useful by sending them to appropriate people. Currently, you can only filter by location and industry. But, there are many custom searches we can make in our contacts and group them as per our need.

Therefore, I would like to suggest User Generated Search Tags. Search Tag is similar to Blog Tags and Interest Group Tags in Blogger Profile. However this can be used to tag people with appropriate keywords. XING is already using this type of tags. You can actually use this tag for various purposes:

Search Tags for Narrow Searching

Use the tags for creating narrow search of LinkedIn connection. You can provide the tag option as narrow search for forwarding any mail. To create the tags, the users will do a people search and tick/check the appropriate people and write a tag for them. e.g. If someone searches for “SAP Developers” in people search, he will be able to choose by clicking on the check box on the basis of his judgment on the summary and then grossly mark the checked profiles with a generic tag, like “SAP Developers”. And when s/he wants to send mails to people within this search tag, s/he will be able to send it by choosing the tags defined by the user. Again, if anyone joins the network with similar People Search Attribute, then s/he will be automatically tagged.

Profile Tags for Keyword Channeling

You can use this User Generated Search Tags like XING, i.e. show it in their public profile. This will also automatically create Keyword Channels for the Profiles. This will enhance the Search Engine Rankings for each profile, since Google &amp; other Search Engines like Keyword Channels (or simply Anchor Texts). You can also use Tag Cloud Option to show most popular tags in bold and least popular tags in plain text. I believe that Tags from people will actually represent what people are saying about you. And this will also allow members to top the Rank in People Search and establish them to stay ahead of the industry or Keyword Channel. If anyone is ranked 1st, 2nd or 3rd for the Profile Keyword Tag, then he can be rewarded with a badge. I believe that this will encourage people to promote their profile instead of their personal sites.

Tags for Virtual Directory of Interest Groups

If the tags are clickable tags, then you can virtually have Directories of Professionals channeled with Keyword Tags. Besides groups in LinkedIn, this will also create Virtual Interest Groups within LinkedIn, rather than an actual group. These tags can be further utilized for User Profile-based PPC Campaign like Facebook.

Update: This tags are more like the Google Plus Friend Circles that allows you to send updates to a specific types of people. When some one sends a Job notification for SEO Manager, it is pretty hard to find the right people and forward them the notification. If tags could be created through search, then people could have sent relevant message to the right people.

          UAS Entrepreneurs Set Their Sights on North Dakota   
By PR Newswire
A lone aircraft flies over a large swath of land checking for abnormalities in crops before landing safely at the feet of its pilot. A classroom of college-level students gain experience on how to operate an unmanned aerial system through simulation. An entrepreneur monitors his phone app to ensure that his unmanned aerial systems (UAS) tech is operating correctly out in the field. 

As the largest site available for flying UAS anywhere in the United States, these are every day occurrences in the state of North Dakota.

Since becoming the nation's first operational test site in 2014, the Northern Plains UAS Test Site has attracted investment from leading aerospace companies including General Atomics Aeronautical Systems Inc., Northrop Grumman, the U.S. Air Force and NASA.

This week North Dakota aerospace and aviation leaders are at AUVSI's XPONENTIAL 2016, the largest trade show for the unmanned systems and robotics industry in the world, to showcase the state's continual leadership and ability to attract big names in America's ever-expanding UAS industry. In addition, they are going to be on hand to discuss how entrepreneurs are finding success in the state.

"As thousands of entrepreneurs look for exciting opportunities in the rapidly expanding UAS industry, North Dakota wants them to know that we have the resources and capability to robustly support them in their endeavors," said Lt. Gov. Drew Wrigley, who also serves as chairman of the Northern Plains Unmanned Systems Authority.

Because of North Dakota's reputation for UAS innovation and location as an FAA test site, the state is already seeing organic growth in startups focused on UAS.

Take Botlink, a cloud-based operations platform that links drones to industry in real time. The platform allows users to capture, process and automatically deliver aerial imagery anywhere, including into existing business software. Botlink also provides automated drone control and safety features such as airspace alerts, manned aircraft avoidance and weather advisories, allowing operators to remain safe and compliant with complex flight regulations.

"We're proud to be developing the next generation of drone technology in North Dakota," said Terri Zimmerman, Botlink CEO.

Many startup companies working in the UAS industry are supported by the University of North Dakota's (UND) Center for Innovation, which was the first university to offer a degree program in unmanned aviation in 2009 and has the largest university training program available for unmanned aircraft systems.

This includes SkyScopes, Smart C2 and Field of View. All of these companies have emerged out of the Center for Innovation within in the last five years and have been able to take advantage of the forward-thinking resources that come from an FAA-designated test site.

The state's 'Research ND' program offers $5 million biannually in grants for research and development to organizations and companies involved in UAS research through cooperation with UND and North Dakota State University (NDSU). North Dakotahas invested more than $34 million to establish a national UAS test site, to establish the Grand Sky UAS Business Park (the nation's first UAS business and aviation park) and to advance North Dakota's position as a hub for the nation's growing UAS industry.

"North Dakota continues to attract innovators in UAS technology, and we welcome the opportunity to foster entrepreneurship here and set the leading example for best practices in this sector," said Robert Becklund, executive director of the Northern Plains UAS Test Site.

          Bob Becklund Pilots State's UAS Technology   
By The Bismarck Tribune
When the North Dakota Air National Guard’s F-16 fighter jets were growing old and in need of replacement, the organization made a choice — one that is taking North Dakota into the lead of the unmanned aerial systems industry.

Bob Becklund found himself at the head of that change.

As the United States had stopped buying fighter jets and the older jets handed down to guard units were becoming difficult to find, the air guard made strategic plans to look for new missions, according to Becklund.

“We were the best fighter unit in the U.S. … but still there weren’t aircraft,” he said.

That is when the MQ-1 Predator and RQ-4 Global Hawk came down from the clouds.

“We thought here’s a new technology that will be relevant and required forever,” Becklund said, and the air guard started seeking them out as replacements for the aging F-16s.

In 2004, Becklund was wing commander, overseeing a base realignment and closure in 2005. He then helped pick crews for UAS training and the unit earned a good reputation for UAS operations.

This would lead Becklund to an invitation to serve on a UAS task force to the Pentagon. One year on the task force turned into three before he returned to North Dakota.

Around that same time, Federal Aviation Administration-mandated UAS test sites were being picked around the country. Becklund answered North Dakota’s ad for an executive director of a test site. When hired, his job was to do his best to make sure North Dakota was selected for a site.

When he succeeded, he became executive director of the Northern Plains UAS Test Site in Grand Forks, at the helm of UAS industry in the state. This time, he is leading research that will help make a technology mostly dominated by the military become commercially viable.

The next step

To help advance research and development, Becklund said he would like to create an environment for the larger unmanned aircraft flown at Northern Plains to fly without a chase plane as is required under FAA rules.

The test site is working closely with the FAA on this, and if successful, it would be the only place in the country to allow it, according to Becklund, adding that Northern Plains already has FAA approval to fly UAS anywhere in the state and at night.

Becklund said the chase plane plan is aggressive but necessary for technological advancement and he thinks North Dakota has the right tools to make it work. Because of the Grand Forks Air Force Base, North Dakota has access to high-end radar that can spot any aircraft flying in the area. That technology would keep UAS flights without a chase plane safe. In addition, Grand Forks is the only place in the U.S. where the Predator, Global Hawk and MQ-9 Reaper are flying together.Advertisement (1 of 1): 0:13Flying with a chase plane is cost prohibitive and the only way to make UAS commercially viable is to move beyond line-of-sight flights, according to Becklund, who said allowing in-field research to determine how this would be done safely would be beneficial to the industry and FAA.

Eventually, that research could transfer to the rest of the country, even where radar isn’t available. Becklund said this could be done through cooperative air space, where all aircraft flying would emit a signal rather than allowing some, such as gliders and aerial sprayers, to fly using visual flight rules.

While that may sound bold because it will cost money to institute, at the same time, it will greatly increase safety, Becklund said.

“There would never be mid-air collisions,” said Becklund, pointing out that secure and reliable communications links are the key and the research conducted at Northern Plains could help make that possible.

Becklund said the challenge now is there are no standards so companies don’t know to what specifications to build.

“Here in North Dakota, we can do research on those things,” he said.

2017 and beyond

The test site is set to expire in 2017, but Becklund said the North Dakota congressional delegation is working to extend it. With or without the federal extension, he is confident testing will continue as North Dakota has long invested in UAS technology and research — about $30 million to date.

“I think North Dakota needs to continue its investment; we’re out in front of it all. We need to stay in front of it and look to the future,” said Becklund, who describes the UAS expertise that has been developed in the state as “incredible” and will give North Dakota a seat at the table in deciding how to regulate the industry.

“It’s really exciting to be part of the new age of aviation,” said the former fighter pilot who has followed the industry from the cockpit to the remote control.

Becklund said, when he was flying, the planes were loud and highly visible. With UAS, many air guard missions are flown in secret on the other side of the world.

“But the cool factor is just off the charts,” said Becklund, adding that the air guard provides lots of opportunity and training, pays for college and can land airmen a full-time job upon graduation.

“Think where this could go,” said Becklund, pointing out that one day there may be a cheaper replacement for satellites. “That’s kind of fun stuff. I can’t think of where all it might go. I just know it’s a good thing.”

“I think North Dakota needs to continue its investment; we’re out in front of it all. We need to stay in front of it and look to the future.” — Bob Becklund

          North Dakota UAV Business Grows   
By Ag Week
The UAV industry continues to grow and evolve, and Field of View is growing and evolving with it.

New regulations for unmanned aerial vehicles proposed in February by the Federal Aviation Administration “are a breath of fresh air,” says David Dvorak, CEO of Grand Forks, N.D.-based Field of View. “They provide our industry with more confidence that this is going to happen. People are finally starting to invest in the technology, which is good for us.”

The company, which he launched in 2010, seeks to “bridge the gap between unmanned aircraft and precision agriculture,” as the company’s website puts it.

By all accounts, the use of UAVs, also known as drones and unmanned aircraft systems, can be a big plus in agriculture and other industries. The Association for Unmanned Vehicle Systems International estimates easing current restrictions of UAVs would create 70,000 jobs and generate $13.6 billion in economic impact within three years in the U.S.

The FAA’s new proposal, which could be enacted by the fall of 2016, would pave the way for widespread commercial use of drones weighing fewer than 55 pounds. The FAA wants to balance the economic value of commercial use against the safety risk.

“The rule, as proposed, would seem to be good for agriculture,” Dvorak says. “So the regulatory side seems to be falling into place at last.”

Field of View’s flagship product, GeoSnap, generally has drawn more interest overseas because other countries have fewer restrictions on air space. Now, with the FAA proposal, domestic interest is picking up.

GeoSnap is an add-on device for multispectral cameras mounted on either manned or unmanned aircraft. Such cameras capture images in the red, green and near-infrared bands, allowing users to visualize plant stress better than they can with most other camera systems, Dvorak says.

GeoSnap takes images captured by the multispectral camera and maps them with real-world coordinates, a process known as georeferencing. That allows users to know the aerial images’ exact location on the ground.

Field of View recently came out with a less expensive version of GeoSnap, known as GeoSnap Express, “that will be useful for some of our newer customers,” Dvorak says. “Sometimes you just want to try it (the technology), and this is a really good system to help people get up and going with it.”

GeoSnap Express costs $1,450 or $1,950, depending on the model. GeoSnap Pro, the original version, costs $7,000 or $9,000, depending on the model.

Field of View also is offering a new product that involves thermal payloads.

“We’re able to map vegetation temperature across the field, which will help give us an indication of where water stress might be and to detect where plants get sick,” Dvorak says.

And Field of View has begun working with Minneapolis-based PowerOfGround to offer image processing services. For more information, visit www.powerofground.com.

“Some people want to do that (image processing) themselves,” Dvorak says. “Others want somebody to do it for them.”

Dvorak grew up in St. Cloud, Minn., and came to the University of North Dakota in Grand Forks to study engineering. At UND, he developed a special interest in the use of unmanned aircraft and multispectral cameras in precision agriculture.

He and another company employee work in Grand Forks. A third, an engineer, works in California. Field of View uses a Fargo, N.D., company for its international marketing.

“Good things are happening in our industry,” Dvorak says. “And we see that continuing.”

          Drones: Next Big Thing in Aviation Is Small   
By ABC News


The next big thing in aviation may be really small.

With some no bigger than a hummingbird, the hottest things at this week's Farnborough International Airshow are tiny compared with the titans of the sky, such as the Airbus 380 or the Boeing Dreamliner.

What's got aviation geeks salivating at Farnborough, this year's biggest aviation jamboree that features participants from 40 countries, are the commercial possibilities of unmanned aerial vehicles — drones to most of us.

Drones are more commonly known for their use in conflict areas. This week Hamas launched for the first time an unmanned drone into Israeli airspace that was shot down.

But drones, which can weigh less than an ounce, have potential commercial applications that are vast. The industry, military and non-military, is growing and could according to some see investments of nearly $90 billion over the next ten years.

Experts say they can be adapted to fly over fields to determine when crops need watering, fly into clouds in hopes of offering more precise predictions on twisters, track endangered rhinos, spot wildfires and search out vast stretches of land for missing children.

And like the dawn of the era of aviation a little over a century ago, innovations are often being conducted by individuals with an idea and endless enthusiasm. They won't find it easy though as the big players in the markets, such as Boeing and Airbus, are also getting involved.

A lot of the research has been taking place in big flat places such as the Plains States, where a broad expanse of land combines with universities near military bases with air space exclusions to make research possible.

Where California had Silicon Valley to drive its high-tech industries, America's central belt from North Dakota to Texas could become a new research and commercial center for the aviation industry — the Silicon Plains.

"This is open country for entrepreneurs," said Stephen McKeever, Oklahoma's secretary of science and technology. "There will be a Steve Jobs."

But things are a bit on hold at the moment for the American makers of unmanned air vehicles, or UAVs, as they await rules from the Federal Aviation Administration. Under current rules, you can legally fly drones for "recreational purposes," as long as you comply with certain basic guidelines — such as keeping well clear of airports.

Commercial operations are only allowed with special authorization, a cumbersome process that the government intends to streamline. Once they are able to do this, McKeever suggests the situation will be akin to the land rush that sent land-hungry settlers scurrying to his state in 1889.

The FAA is developing regulations to permit the widespread commercial use of drones while protecting privacy and preventing interference with larger aircraft. As part of this process, the FAA in December selected six test sites around the country where research on drones will be conducted in a variety of environments.

North Dakota is one of them, and Brian Opp, manager of aerospace business development for the North Dakota Department of Commerce, is at Farnborough, promoting the virtues of the weather. In other words, if your drone can work in the midst of a freezing North Dakota winter or its scorching summer, it will work anywhere.

"That's good news for us," Opp said cheerfully.

          BWW Review: TWAS THE HAPPIEST HOUR BEFORE PRIDE at The Duplex Comes Together for A Good Cause   
Partly Cloudy People's TWAS THE HAPPIEST HOUR BEFORE PRIDE played at The Duplex on June 24. Artwork courtesy of the organization.

TWAS THE HAPPIEST HOUR BEFORE PRIDE, a mix of comedy stand-up, ballads, and spoken word poetry, took the stage at The Duplex on June 24 to celebrate NYC Pride and fundraise for a good cause.

The show was produced by Partly Cloudy People, an organization founded by Sarah Nedwek and Eva Gil. Nedwek and Gil chose the name because they "believe all people have their dark days, but...artists, can shed light on these times through sharing the experience with others."

Partly Cloudy uses theatre as a means to raise awareness and money for local organizations and projects. Its inaugural HAPPIEST HOUR was in June 2015 right after Marriage Equality was ruled on by the Supreme Court. This most recent show was in partnership with The Ackerman Institute in support of its Gender and Family Project, which promotes gender inclusivity and "empowers youth, families, and communities by providing gender affirmative services, training, and research."

The show was hosted by energetic emcees Tom Picasso and Xavier "Mamma" Rice, accompanied by pianist Brandon Sturiale. The vocal selections were drawn from a broad musical canon, with selections such as "The Stars and the Moon" from SONGS FOR A NEW WORLD (Jason Robert Brown), and "She Used to Be Mine" from WAITRESS (Sara Bareilles).

The Duplex is a quaint venue and director Kelly McCready made smart decisions in terms of the stage plots and usage of space, creating a performance that felt intimate and dynamic, a necessity as the cast performs pieces that are fun and sentimental. Hosts offered playful transitions between sets that served as duets or solo monologues culminating in an all-cast performance.

Rice, the Brooklyn-based cabaret artist known for the late night series MAMMA RICE N' FRIENDS at Public Assembly, was an exceptional host who arranged a dazzling rendition of the blues standard "Tain't Nobody's Business" by Porter Grainger and Everett Robbins (made famous with recordings from Jimmy Witherspoon, as well as Bessie Smith and many classic female blues singers).

The inclusion of spoken word poetry and solo theatre monologues created space for deeply personal testimonial. According to the Partly Cloudy founders, they gave all artists full ownership of what they wanted to share. For example, poet David Huynh performed a stunning original spoken word poem about Vietnamese Pride and how his parents met. Vocalist Tricia Alexandro performed an original monologue about pink pussy hats, and Nedwek performed an original monologue, "My Son, Henry," about a parent's transition with her transgender son.

Diversity in theatre is an ongoing issue and one that Partly Cloudy seems to be interested in solving. The diversity in terms of age, race, cultural identities, and connection to the LGBTQIA community, in both the cast and creative teams, added an element of authenticity to the performance. The cast appeared comfortable with each other, and it felt like we were watching a group friends onstage together who happened to be extremely talented.

In an interview with Newdek, she discussed the goals of HAPPIEST HOUR. "Art allows a group of people, who may share vastly different views to sit in a room and have a collective experience, independent of party affiliation. It can create a forum for dialogue, which is the best place to start."

TWAS THE HAPPIEST HOUR BEFORE PRIDE, a special edition to the month of Pride, is must-see cabaret in New York City, successful in bringing together a dynamic cause, exciting and raising money for a good cause.

NASA’s Juno probe sends back stunning images of Jupiter

Renowned U.S. space agency NASA has released some really stunning new images of Jupiter that were captured and sent back to Earth by its space probe Juno.

Designed to map our solar system’s biggest planet’s poles and atmosphere, Juno entered Jupiter’s orbit in July 2016 after a 5-year journey, and it has been probing the planet since then.

Scott Bolton, Juno’s principal investigator from the Southwest Research Institute, said that the new images look like paintings of Van Gogh.

Speaking on the topic, Bolton said, “I kind of expected some of this, because a long time ago, Voyager took pictures, and other spacecraft that have gone near Jupiter have taken some images, but they’re usually global ones and boy, when you get close and you see these swirls, they look like art.”

The new images show stunning clouds above the surface of Jupiter that are produced by the planet’s incredibly complex atmospheric dynamics, including winds and turbulence.

Juno has already orbited the largest planet of our solar system five times since it arrival on in early July last year, and its most recent closest flyby of the planet occurred on 27th of March.

Stephen Hansen, Michael McMahon 03 February 2016

Over the past two decades, central bank communication has become an increasingly important policy instrument. Figure 1 plots the use of the phrase “central bank communication” in English books over the recent past. Usage rapidly expands after essentially no coverage before 2000. One illustrative example is the recent decision of the US Federal Reserve’s Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) to raise policy rates by 25 basis points on 16 December 2015. While markets widely anticipated this decision, there was a great deal of speculation beforehand about the statement the Federal Reserve would release with its decision that would outline its views on economic conditions and forward guidance on future policy decisions.

The importance of communication to monetary policy has risen alongside a recognition that controlling market expectations is as important – if not more so – than setting the actual overnight policy rate. Communication is one of the main channels through which central bankers can affect market beliefs about its future actions. Evidence of this comes from the event-study analysis of Gürkaynak et al. (2005), who show that on Fed decision days the statement moves markets beyond the effect of the change in contemporary policy rate. More generally, once one accepts the importance of communication in shaping expectations, an important issue is to design the optimal communication policy (Reis 2013).

While the literature has established that communication can drive expectations, it has not pinned down the mechanism by which it does. In other words, given that central bankers can speak about a variety of issues, which ones are most important for driving market outcomes? Our recent paper builds on the computational linguistics techniques developed by Blei et al (2003) and introduced to the economics literature by Hansen et al (2014) to address this question (see Hansen and McMahon 2016).

Measuring central bank communication

For our analysis, we consider Fed statements from 1998 up to 2014. These statements – released when the policy interest rate is announced after each FOMC meeting – provide short summaries of the FOMC’s thinking behind interest rate decisions. There are eight such meetings each year. Central bank communication can give information along (at least) two distinct dimensions. First, the Fed has in place a large infrastructure for determining economic conditions, not all of which is available to market participants. By disclosing its views on conditions, the Fed can provide additional information to outsiders. Second, the FOMC can indicate how it expects to set future policy, so-called ‘forward guidance’.

To measure communication about economic conditions, we first estimate a topic model called Latent Dirichlet allocation (Blei et al 2003) on the set of paragraphs of all Fed statements in our sample. This both estimates topics or coherent themes within the data, and then decomposes each paragraph into the percentage of time it spends covering each topic. Importantly, there are no pre-defined labels on topics; instead, the algorithm groups together words in a completely data-driven way. After estimating topics, we identify several that pertain to economic conditions – prices and inflation; the demand side of the economy; labour market conditions; and growth prospects. Figure 2 illustrates the topic pertaining to labour market conditions as a word cloud in which the size of the word is proportional to the probability it appears in the topic.

Figure 2. Example topic about economic conditions

For the next step, we identify which paragraphs are predominantly about economic conditions and then, within these paragraphs, count the number of ‘expansionary’ words – such as “increasing”, “accelerating”, etc. – and subtract the number of ‘contractionary’ words such as “weak”, “slow”, etc. (The specific lists are taken from Apel and Blix Grimaldi 2012). This allows us to construct an index for each meeting’s statement of how positive the Fed is about economic conditions.

To measure forward guidance, we manually identify relevant paragraphs.1 We take a broader conception of forward guidance than some of the recent literature. We consider paragraphs to contain forward guidance if they reflect conditional statements about the extent of monetary support going forward, if they contain the date-based guidance of the FOMC in recent years, or if the FOMC statement is clear about the balance of risks as seen by the FOMC. To form our measure of a particular meeting’s forward guidance, we multiply the share of a statement’s total words made up of paragraphs about forward guidance and multiply it by the overall direction of the guidance (an increase in future rates = 1; a neutral stance = 0; and a decrease in future rates = -1). To arrive at the final index, we rescale this measure by the number of words in the forward guidance paragraphs that reflect uncertainty (the specific list is taken from Loughran and McDonald 2011) – the more ‘uncertain’ words the paragraphs contain, the lower the index. The idea is that more precise forward guidance should be more informative than ambiguous statements.

Figure 3 plots the time series of both our economic conditions and forward guidance indices. The former roughly tracks the business cycle (though it is noisy), while the latter grows in prominence over time, in particular in the recent period in which the Fed engaged in unconventional monetary policy.

Figure 3. Indices of Fed communication about economic conditions and forward guidance

Effects of public communication

Our ultimate question of interest is which dimension of monetary policy communication —economic conditions or forward guidance — is more important for explaining the market responses to Fed statements. We also need to control for the policy rate decision that accompanies Fed statements. For this, we use the shadow rates constructed in Wu and Xia (2014) that correct for the fact that the main policy rate of the Fed reached its effective lower bound in the wake of the financial crisis of 2008-2009.

To study the impact of multi-dimensional monetary policy (communication in addition to the monetary stance), we employ a factor-augmented vector autoregression (FAVAR) statistical model. This allows us to model interdependencies among all variables while capturing the effects of the macroeconomy using factors from a large array of macroeconomic time-series data.

We first study the reaction of financial asset prices to monetary policy. In terms of bonds, we find that the short end of the yield curve reacts very little to communication, but is fairly sensitive to the policy rate. But as one goes out further in the yield curve, forward guidance plays an increasingly important role in explaining variation in bond prices. On the other hand, communication about economic conditions explains very little of the observed bond price movements in our data at all time-horizons. The overall pattern is similar for equity prices – forward guidance explains three to four times as much movement in market indices as economic conditions communication.

We also study the relationship between monetary policy and the real economy. Here again, we find an important role for forward guidance relative to economic conditions. In fact, forward guidance explains as much variation in short-term unemployment rates as the monetary stance itself. Again though, there is little role for economic conditions in explaining movement in unemployment, prices, and other measures of economic activity.

Overall, then, the message of our work is that markets appear to put much more weight on what central banks say about their future policy decisions than what they say about economic conditions. This is consistent with a view in which market participants and the Fed have a similar understanding of the state of the economy at any given point in time, but substantial uncertainty exists regarding the future behaviour of the central bank. In this environment, communication shapes expectations through providing markets with additional information on how the central bank will behave in the future.

G3's latest APP Technology is called: Well-Beyond-Period (i.e. Well-Beyond.)

What the APP? The word "app" is an abbreviation for "application." It's a piece of software that can run through a web browser or even offline on your computer, phone, tablet or any other electronic device. Apps may or may not have a connection to the internet. App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.

Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.

Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

https://youtu.be/61e2ZIw1mKo

Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

Why An App Is Important
Now that we've got that figured out, the next question you're probably asking is "why should I care about apps?"  Two good reasons:

(1) Web apps or online apps can be a faster, cheaper, more efficient way of deploying software in your business.  Rather than buying a software license, having to install it on your servers or local computers, keeping up with updates — all of which can be expensive and take time — you can simply go online and sign up for an account.  In a few minutes you are using the software.  And typically you pay a monthly fee, meaning that you don't have to pay license fee up front.   For more on what you can do with Web applications, read:  How Small Businesses Use Web Apps – and What to Look For.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/10/how-small-businesses-use-web-apps.html

(2) Mobile apps extend the reach and productivity of your business.  Once you equip your mobile device and/or your employees' mobile devices with apps, then you and they can perform all sorts of business functions while out of the office traveling, on sales calls, making service calls, etc.  A mobile app usually enables you to do something specific, like accessing your bank account in the case of a banking app, or run payroll with a payroll mobile app.  Check out: 10 Ways to Use Mobile Devices to Run Your Business.  

https://smallbiztrends.com/2010/09/mobile-devices-to-run-your-business.html

So the next time someone bandies about the term "app" you'll be in the know. More importantly, perhaps you'll be in a position to say, "Oh sure, we use all sorts of apps to run our business better."

How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.

In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.

You may have heard people talking about using a program, an application, or an app. But what exactly does that mean? Simply put, an app is a type of software that allows you to perform specific tasks. Applications for desktop or laptop computers are sometimes called desktop applications, while those for mobile devices are called mobile apps.

When you open an application, it runs inside the operating system until you close it. Most of the time, you will have more than one application open at the same time, which is known as multi-tasking.

In January 2011, the American Dialect Society named "app" the word of the year for 2010. That action alone says a lot. Being named word of year signifies that a term is trendy and growing in popularity. However, just because the use of a word is growing, we shouldn't assume that everyone knows it — yet. That's because being named word of the year also implies that the word is newly prominent. If the word were utterly commonplace like "dog" or "cat" it wouldn't have been singled out. Therefore, we should recognize that not everyone will know the word "app" at this point.

https://smallbiztrends.com/2011/03/what-is-an-app.html

Defining "App:" The word app is a noun, and it's short for "application." Application in this case refers to a software application — in other words, an app is a software program.

Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.

For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!

https://www.apple.com/itunes/

Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.

Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.

~If one thinks about "the real reason why"  they need to engage in Social Media,
it all boils down to these basics:

(a)   Forming the right relations and
(b)   Doing so the right way
~Many business leaders are still at the fundamental stage of asking,
"Why is Social Media important for my business?"
~This very question begs another question:
"Have you been paying attention to the marketplace?"

Ok, so, most people will answer these questions quite easily.  And here's how it usually goes: "Yes, of course I've been paying attention to the marketplace and Social Media is obviously important because it seems to be everywhere one turns.  One is hearing about Social Media but still have the need to understand why  the businesses using it and why is it creating so much attention."  The answer to "Why" is related to "How and What" a business does to engage in market relations with the aim of creating an opportunity for a business transaction.  Why do businesses exist?  Primarily to:

(a) Create value and
(b) Attract a market who wants the value proposition enough to engage.

However, the "How" of doing this has dramatically changed in the last 2 years from "Push Marketing" to "Pull Marketing."  This transformation has all happened via relevant and relative conversations that attract the market one will seek to the client.

The Real Reasons Why To Use Social Media:
1. If ones business can't be found — they are not engaging with the "True Market."
2. Social Media (YouTube) is 64% more effective — than traditional advertising.
3. Ones "True Competition" — is guaranteed to be engaged in Social Media.
4. One will find customers — 15 times faster with Social Media.
5. One can reach the "True Market" — by simply engaging the right people.
6. By ignoring this Social Media Market, they are not creating opportunities –
while the competition is.
7. Social Media saves massive amounts of time— if one uses it right.

Site owners started to recognize the value of having their sites highly ranked and visible in search engine results, creating an opportunity for both white hat and black hat SEO practitioners. According to industry analyst Danny Sullivan, the phrase "search engine optimization" probably came into use in 1997. The first documented use of the term Search Engine Optimization was John Audette and his company Multimedia Marketing Group as documented by a web page from the MMG site from August, 1997.

Early versions of search algorithms relied on webmaster-provided information such as the keyword meta tag, or index files in engines like ALIWEB. Meta tags provide a guide to each page's content. Using meta data to index pages was found to be less than reliable, however, because the webmaster's choice of keywords in the meta tag could potentially be an inaccurate representation of the site's actual content. Inaccurate, incomplete, and inconsistent data in meta tags could and did cause pages to rank for irrelevant searches.  Web content providers also manipulated a number of attributes within the HTML source of a page in an attempt to rank well in search engines.

As the cleints new blog site begins to fill with content, and they establish a web presence, search engines begin to notice, index, and list them in their results. This is often referred to as "Organic SEO". The more custom content they have, the higher the site climbs in search results. If they're new to blogging and web marketing, G3 understands. For the most part, they'll take care of things for the client. However if they would like to get involved, G3 created an easy-to-follow instructions and a cool video library to help them become more familiar with their new blog site. G3 Development provides access to these resources once the client has established an account.

When people needed or wanted something in the old days, they'd look up information in the yellow pages.  Today, people turn to search engines to find what they want or need.

Each day, on average, Google searches currently total over 400,000,000.  When people are looking to purchase something they want/need, more-and-more they're going "on line" to find out what other people think or say about a certain product, service or brand.  The relevancy that influences people's buying behavior is other people's conversations.  That's if they can find a conversation and if it provides the value that people are looking for.  If one can learn "how" to use social media correctly then they'll understand "what" the market is looking for and "where" they are looking.

To sum up:
For many, the Web isn't a place to look for information — it's the only place.

App is a modern take on the word software or application. This is why you probably only hear it in reference to a mobile app or a small piece of software that's running on a website. It's typically used to describe anything that isn't a full-fledged software program.

Types of Apps: There are three main types of apps: (1) Desktop, (2) Mobile and (3) Web.

Desktop apps, like mentioned above, are usually much "fuller" and are comprised of all the features of a program, whereas the mobile or app equivalent is a simpler and easier-to-use version. This makes sense when you consider that most desktop and web apps are built to be used with a mouse and keyboard along with a much larger display, but mobile apps are intended to be accessed with a finger or stylus on a small screen.

https://www.lifewire.com/what-are-apps-1616114

Web apps might be full of features too but they have to leverage the capabilities of the internet connection and web browser program, so while some are heavy duty and can perform really well like mobile or desktop programs, most web apps are lightweight for a reason. If an app is a mix between a web app and desktop app, they might be called hybrid apps. These are apps that have an offline, desktop interface and direct access to hardware and other connected devices, but also an always-on connection to the internet for quicker updates and access to internet resources. http://www.g3-development.co/

Park City, UTAH Reason #89 Why Purchasing the International .Well-Beyond. 'Marketing Network (#WellBeyond) Product May be a Dreadful Choice

Examples of Apps: Some apps exist in all three forms and are available as not only mobile apps but also desktop and web apps. The Adobe Photoshop image editor is a full software program that runs on your computer, but Adobe Photoshop Sketch is a mobile app that lets you draw and paint from a portable device. It's more of a condensed version of the desktop application. The same is true with the web app called Adobe Photoshop Express Editor.

http://www.adobe.com/products/photoshop.html

Another example is Microsoft Word. It's available for computers in its most advanced form but also on the web and via a mobile app. Those two examples are of apps that exist in all three app forms, but that isn't always the case.

https://office.live.com/start/Word.aspx

For example, you can get to your Gmail messages through the official Gmail.com website and Gmail mobile app but there isn't a desktop program from Google that lets you access your mail. In this case, Gmail is both a mobile and web app but not a desktop app.

Others (usually games) are similar in that there are both mobile and web versions of the same game but maybe not a desktop app. Or, there might be a desktop version of the game but it's not available as a web or mobile app.

Common Mistake #1:  Hiring the Wrong Coach - There are a lot of people tagging themselves as "Social Media Experts, Gurus or Certified Specialists."  Most of the people making these claims are individuals/organizations who offer "basic Social Media skill sets and copy methodologies" which, in the end, will get  the wrong kind of connections, a lot of the wrong followers as well as a bad reputation in the marketplace.  Just like in the Indiana Jones movie, one needs to "choose wisely" or they will perish from a Social Media perspective.

Communications is a system to leverage an organizations ability to connect with ones market; Social Media is "the new" communications system.  Communications is about reach.  Communicating is about relational dynamics between people.  Social Media provides the means to effectively communicate with ones market.  However, communicating in human rather than institutional terms.  If one is not communicating (listening first, initiating second) then, how in the world does one expect to create relationships with people and businesses that may want the value that one offers?

Mission Statement:
To proactively serve our business community by providing solutions in entrepreneurialism, business development, social media and venture capitalism.

Vision Statement:
To provide leadership in establishing strength with our client's international businesses, being built on a foundation of innovation, advocacy, technology and business integrity.

~If one thinks about "the real reason why"  they need to engage in Social Media,
it all boils down to these basics:

(a)   Forming the right relations and
(b)   Doing so the right way
~Many business leaders are still at the fundamental stage of asking,
"Why is Social Media important for my business?"
~This very question begs another question:
"Have you been paying attention to the marketplace?"

Ok, so, most people will answer these questions quite easily.  And here's how it usually goes: "Yes, of course I've been paying attention to the marketplace and Social Media is obviously important because it seems to be everywhere one turns.  One is hearing about Social Media but still have the need to understand why  the businesses using it and why is it creating so much attention."  The answer to "Why" is related to "How and What" a business does to engage in market relations with the aim of creating an opportunity for a business transaction.  Why do businesses exist?  Primarily to:

(a) Create value and
(b) Attract a market who wants the value proposition enough to engage.

However, the "How" of doing this has dramatically changed in the last 2 years from "Push Marketing" to "Pull Marketing."  This transformation has all happened via relevant and relative conversations that attract the market one will seek to the client.

How to download apps? Where you get your apps from depends on what kind of smartphone you're using. The three of today's biggest smartphone platforms - Android, iOS and Windows Phone - all come with brows-able desktop web sites and accompanying app stores that arrive built-in as part of the phone's operating system.

In addition to the official app stores from Apple, Google and Microsoft, there are unofficial options, too. Take the Android Amazon Appstore app for example. Google doesn't allow rival app shops to list themselves on its own app shop, so the Amazon Appstore has to be downloaded to your phone through the web browser. Install this and you're presented with Amazon's own collection of apps, which can offer different prices and levels of support when compared to the Google option. And, to go a step further, Android's open software lets anyone install anything from the web.

http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/what-are-apps-and-how-do-they-work-with-your-smartphone-1141429

Everyone has an app these days. TV shows, web sites, major multinational corporations, even your brother-in-law's taxi firm conducts its business through an iPhone app -- but what are they? Ask G3-Development.co

Well, apps are basically little, self-contained programs, used to enhance existing functionality, hopefully in a simple, more user-friendly way. Take one of today's modern smartphones. They all come with powerful web browsers, meaning you can do pretty much anything you can do on a desktop computer in a phone's browser.

http://www.techradar.com/news/phone-and-communications/mobile-phones/what-are-apps-and-how-do-they-work-with-your-smartphone-1141429

But fiddling about with a URL bar and managing bookmarks on a mobile phone it still a pretty awkward, cumbersome experience. Which is why many online sites and services now go down the standalone app route, giving them better control of the user experience and, hopefully, making everything simpler and quicker to open and use.

Where to Get Apps? In the context of mobile apps, almost every platform has its own repository where its users can download both free and paid apps. These are normally accessible through the device itself or maybe even a website so that the app can be queued up for download the next time the user is on the device.

For example, the Google Play store and Amazon's Appstore for Android are two places where Android users can download mobile apps. iPhones, iPod touches and iPads can get apps through iTunes on a computer or via the App Store straight from the device. G3 has custom PP solutions for you!

https://www.apple.com/itunes/

Desktop apps are more widely available from unofficial sources (e.g. Softpedia and FileHippo.com) but some official ones include the Mac App Store for macOS apps and the Windows Store for Windows apps. Tip: See how to safely download and install software to avoid getting malware. Web apps, on the other hand, load within a web browser and don't need to be downloaded. That is, unless you're talking about something like Chrome Apps that are downloaded to your computer but then run as small web-based apps through the chrome://apps/ URL, such as Videostream.

Note: Google refers to their online services as app but they also sell a specific suite of services known as Google Apps for Work. Google has an application hosting service called Google App Engine, which is a part of the Google Cloud Platform.

By 2004, search engines had incorporated a wide range of undisclosed factors in their ranking algorithms to reduce the impact of link manipulation. In June 2007, The New York Times' Saul Hansell stated Google ranks sites using more than 200 different signals. The leading search engines, Google, Bing, and Yahoo, do not disclose the algorithms they use to rank pages. Some SEO practitioners have studied different approaches to search engine optimization, and have shared their personal opinions.  Patents related to search engines can provide information to better understand search engines.

In 2005, Google began personalizing search results for each user. Depending on their history of previous searches, Google crafted results for logged in users. In 2008, Bruce Clay said that "ranking is dead" because of personalized search. He opined that it would become meaningless to discuss how a website ranked, because its rank would potentially be different for each user and each search.

In December 2009, Google announced it would be using the web search history of all its users in order to populate search results.

Google Instant, real-time-search, was introduced in late 2010 in an attempt to make search results more timely and relevant. Historically site administrators have spent months or even years optimizing a website to increase search rankings. With the growth in popularity of social media sites and blogs the leading engines made changes to their algorithms to allow fresh content to rank quickly within the search results.

In February 2011, Google announced the Panda update, which penalizes websites containing content duplicated from other websites and sources. Historically websites have copied content from one another and benefited in search engine rankings by engaging in this practice, however Google implemented a new system which punishes sites whose content is not unique.  In April 2012, Google launched the Google Penguin update the goal of which was to penalize websites that used manipulative techniques to improve their rankings on the search engine.

Common Mistake #1:  Hiring the Wrong Coach - There are a lot of people tagging themselves as "Social Media Experts, Gurus or Certified Specialists."  Most of the people making these claims are individuals/organizations who offer "basic Social Media skill sets and copy methodologies" which, in the end, will get  the wrong kind of connections, a lot of the wrong followers as well as a bad reputation in the marketplace.  Just like in the Indiana Jones movie, one needs to "choose wisely" or they will perish from a Social Media perspective.

          Aug 2nd: Venus and Jupiter both struck by massive impacts in less than a fortnight. Is it Earth's turn next?   

It has been revealed today that a massive unexplained white spot has appeared in the cloudy atmosphere of the planet Venus. Scientists are unsure what has caused the spot - some are even speculating on the possibility of volcanic activity - but a massive impact from a comet or asteroid seems the more likely of the two.

This comes just two weeks after a massive scar appeared on Jupiter near its southern pole. The current scientific thinking/speculation suggests that this too may have been caused by a massive asteroid or comet plunging into the largest planet in the solar system.

To date no one has connected the two events. So should we ask the question: Is it possible that there have been some seriously violent collisions taking place in the asteroid belt - which lies between Mars and Jupiter - that have been sending huge asteroids out into both the inner and outer Solar System? And has the Earth been lucky so far in that two of its near neighbours have taken the worst of the impacts?

It's been a while since Earth was struck by a large impact from space. The last big one to strike the Earth's landmass was perhaps on June 30, 1908 when a comet or asteroid measuring some tens of metres across exploded 5-10km in the air over Tungsta, Russia. Although the explosion took place in the air it still had the blast power of a 5-30 megatons bomb (1,000 times that of the Hiroshima bomb) and caused massive damage on the ground.

There's been no such impacts in the age of mass communications and satellite TV networks - which may have created a false sense of security here on Earth. As Californians love to say - regarding the next quake - it may not be long before the next "big one". A sobering thought for a Sunday morning.

          Union verspricht im Wahlprogramm 15.000 zusätzliche Polizisten   
Berlin (dts Nachrichtenagentur) - Mehr Polizisten, weniger Arbeitslose, mehr Wohnungen - das sind zentrale Versprechen im gemeinsamen Wahlprogramm von CDU und CSU, das am Montagmittag vorgestellt werden soll. So sollen Bund und Länder nach dem Willen der Union 15.000 zusätzliche Polizeistellen schaffen, schreibt die "Bild am Sonntag". Außerdem soll es eine bessere Vernetzung der Datenbanken der Sicherheitsbehörden geben.

Die Union wird in dem Regierungsprogramm den Wählern auch versprechen, Vollbeschäftigung in Deutschland bis spätestens 2025 zu erreichen, schreibt die Zeitung weiter. Sie will die Zahl der Arbeitslosen, die aktuell bei 2,473 Millionen Menschen liegt, halbieren und die Quote von derzeit 5,5 Prozent unter drei Prozent bringen. Als Vollbeschäftigung gilt eine Arbeitslosenquote von drei Prozent und weniger. 1,5 Millionen neue Wohnungen sollen in den in den nächsten vier Jahren gebaut werden. Durch Steuerabschreibungen wollen CDU/CSU den Neubau von Wohnungen fördern und mit dem zusätzlichen Wohnraum die steigenden Mieten in den Ballungsgebieten stoppen. Für alle Schulen in Deutschland soll ein digitaler Pakt geschlossen werden. Er beinhaltet, dass die Schulen mit Computern und WLAN für fünf Milliarden Euro ausgestattet werden. Schüler sollen Daten über eine "Bildungscloud" im Netz abrufen können. Drei Milliarden Euro sollen in die Forschung über Krebs, Demenz, Alzheimer investiert werden. Damit sollen neue Behandlungsmöglichkeiten gegen die Krankheiten entwickelt werden. Am heutigen Sonntag wollen die Spitzen von CDU und CSU letzte Details besprechen. Mittags treffen sich Bundeskanzlerin Angela Merkel (CDU) und der CSU-Vorsitzende Horst Seehofer zunächst zum Vier-Augen-Gespräch in der CDU-Parteizentrale in Berlin. Um 14 Uhr stoßen Kanzleramtschef Peter Altmaier sowie die beiden Generalsekretäre Peter Tauber (CDU) und Andreas Scheuer (CSU) dazu. Für den Notfall ist für Montagmorgen um 9 Uhr noch einmal ein Zeitpuffer für eine letzte Verhandlungsrunde eingeplant. Am Montagmittag wollen Merkel und Seehofer das gemeinsame Wahlprogramm vorstellen.

          Exclusive: Dropbox seeks to hire IPO underwriters - sources    

By Liana B. Baker and Lauren Hirsch

(Reuters) - Data-sharing business Dropbox Inc is seeking to hire underwriters for an initial public offering that could come later this year, which would make it the biggest U.S. technology company to go public since Snap Inc , people familiar with the matter said on Friday.

The IPO will be a key test of Dropbox's worth after it was valued at almost $10 billion in a private fundraising round in 2014.

Dropbox will begin interviewing investment banks in the coming weeks, the sources said, asking not to be named because the deliberations are private.

Dropbox declined to comment.

Several big U.S. technology companies such as Uber Technologies Inc and Airbnb Inc have resisted going public in recent months, concerned that stock market investors, who focus more on profitability than do private investors, would assign lower valuations to them.

Snap, owner of the popular messaging app Snapchat, was forced to lower its IPO valuation expectations earlier this year amid investor concern over its unproven business model. Its shares have since lingered just above the IPO price, with investors troubled by widening losses and missed analyst estimates. It has a market capitalization of $21 billion.

Still, for many private companies, there is increasing pressure to go pubic as investors look to cash out.

Proceeds from technology IPOs slumped to $6.7 billion in2015 from $34 billion in 2014, and shrunk further to $2.9 billion in 2016, according to Thomson Reuters data.

Dropbox's main competitor, Box Inc , was valued at roughly $1.67 billion in its IPO in 2015, less than the $2.4 billion it had been valued at in previous private fundraising rounds.

San Francisco-based Dropbox, which was founded in 2007 by Massachusetts Institute of Technology graduates Drew Houston and Arash Ferdowsi, counts Sequoia Capital, T. Rowe Price and Greylock Partners as investors.

Dropbox started as a free service for consumers to share and store photos, music and other large files. That business became commoditized though, as Alphabet Inc's Google, Microsoft Corp and Amazon.com Inc started offering storage for free.

Dropbox has since pivoted to focus on winning business clients, and Houston, the company's CEO, has said that Dropbox is on track to generate more than $1 billion in revenue this year.

The company has expanded its Dropbox Business that requires companies to pay a fee based on the number of employees who use it. The service in January began offering Smart Sync, which allows users to see and access all of their files, whether stored in the cloud or on a local hard drive, from their desktop.

          Comment on Genesis Cloud Mining Review – It’s Not as Profitable as You’d Think by Anonymous   
I was ok with Genesis Mining until they missed an ether payment last week. I've contacted them multiple times but they always give me a different excuse for why I didn't get payed. I assumed the Status ICO caused some technical issues with payouts but now that the ethereum network has recovered they never got around to completing those failed/missing transactions. There is a ton of complaints on social media and forums with people with missed payments and found it impossible to collect those lost funds after contacting customer support. It is unacceptable and illegal for a mining company to be skimming customers' profits in this manner.

I keep my investment in Genesis using Google Sheet I invested 0.04BTC which is about 99$ as this posting. I mine ETH and so far after 10 days mining made $5.07 which equals $253 once contract end if ETH stays at this price. This is my exp so far can I post like to the google sheet others may find it interesting?

Im on the same contract. A loop hole .. POS goes live in November , when this happens genesis will switch you to the most profitable coin at the time. 2 contracts for the price of one :) im banking on that the move to POS will trigger the third crypto bubble allowing us to sell our ether at close to $1000 a pop. bOwVvp , this is my la la land.

          Profiling in Your Pocket   

Last month, the National Sheriffs’ Association unveiled the latest update to its BlackBox Digital Witness app, which allows users to report suspicious activity to law enforcement: an anti-terrorism feature. The sheriffs’ association developed the feature with the Department of Homeland Security and the National Fusion Center Association after the 2015 mass shooting in San Bernardino, California. According to the association’s executive director and CEO, Jonathan Thompson, the fight to stop “homegrown extremist[s] ... requires we work with our citizens and provide them with new tools to help in the fight against crime and to protect their families and schools.”

The updated app sends another message as well: that sheriffs are authorizing profiling on an alarming scale.

When BlackBox first launched in 2013, it served primarily as an emergency alert system. Users could record videos of crimes in real time and notify their personal contacts if they were in immediate danger. While neighborhood watch groups used the app to monitor suspicious activity and see where incidents were frequently reported, the program did not alert local police. The version of the app released last month, however, gives users a direct line to law enforcement, allowing them to send participating agencies recordings of possible threats. Police officials can also use the app’s GPS feature to locate suspects and respond to reports of suspicious activity.

BlackBox Digital Witness is not yet a runaway hit. According to Edward Horcasitas, the app’s creator and a technical adviser to the sheriffs’ association, it has approximately 15,000 users who have recorded roughly 18,000 videos. While Horcasitas said users have reported a wide range of crimes, including domestic violence and aggravated robbery, the app’s online reviews mostly lay out hypothetical use cases. “Been watching a young man pick up and throw a beautiful Doberman puppy every day for the past few weeks. Now I can document his abuse and save this dog’s life,” wrote one user.

At least thus far, law enforcement agencies have been more excited than the general public about the app’s potential. After the latest version was released in May, nearly 70 agencies committed to using BlackBox Digital Witness. The sheriff of Florida’s Orange County told the Orlando Sentinel that the app will allow to users to “provide information to law enforcement so that we can mine the data and make a determination of whether or not it’s useful.” An officer using the tool in Muskogee, Oklahoma, told local reporters the app makes police officers safer because they can witness incidents as they happen. He also said it will make prosecution easier by providing video evidence to support a case. (Although he did not provide specifics, Horcasitas says he knows of several cases in California that have been prosecuted based on evidence provided via the app, including an animal abuse case.)

While the app itself represents a potentially dangerous incursion on civil liberties, what’s more disturbing is what it reveals about the priorities of the National Sheriffs’ Association and the Department of Homeland Security. National Sheriffs’ Association President Greg Champagne said in February that the organization agrees with Donald Trump’s approach to enhancing national security, particularly when it comes to clamping down on immigration. “We have to give our president the benefit of the doubt,” he said, pointing out that Trump was the first in “quite a while” to invite the association’s leadership to the White House.

The app’s new terrorism feature comes at a time of heightened scrutiny of Muslim Americans and immigrants, scrutiny that’s been sanctioned by President Trump, the Justice Department, and DHS. In that Orlando Sentinel story, the Orange County sheriff encouraged civilians to report on “individuals who indicate that they’ve been self radicalized by the way they communicate with others either through social media, emails or other communications [and] by their behaviors sometime in their neighborhoods [and] statements that they make.” This is a recipe for rampant profiling.

BlackBox urges its users to surveil anyone they consider a “terrorist,” a dangerously vague concept. Colloquially, government officials and media outlets use the term to describe Muslim extremists as opposed to white supremacists or mass shooters. DHS also now considers some Black Lives Matter protesters terrorists. Even if local agencies choose not to follow up on a report, the data is stored forever and can potentially be used to conduct long-term surveillance on anyone who’s considered a threat, not just people who exhibit dangerous behavior. According to an investigation by the Intercept, people who are mislabeled as terrorists may be added to a no-fly list or end up in jail. Family members and acquaintances are sometimes identified as possible terrorists by proxy. Even with such high stakes, Horcasitas says the app includes no built-in features to handle false reporting or abuse.

The BlackBox app is the latest iteration of the post-9/11 “See Something, Say Something” campaign, which started in New York City and has since been adopted by DHS and the Transportation Security Agency. Ten years after its adoption by New York’s Metropolitan Transportation Authority, there was no indication that the campaign successfully derailed a terror threat. What we do know is that apps and websites for reporting crime and suspicious activity to law enforcement have consistently led to the profiling of marginalized communities.

Locals have used the French Quarter Task Force app in New Orleans to report suspicious people to law enforcement, which has sometimes devolved into criminalizing homeless people and people of color. In Washington, D.C.’s affluent, predominantly white Georgetown neighborhood, a local shoplifting prevention app became a mechanism for monitoring black shoppers. According to the Washington Post, around 70 percent of people flagged through the app were black, even though black residents make up less than 4 percent of Georgetown’s population. Research by Rutgers University professor Jerome Williams indicates black people are no more likely than whites to shoplift but are more likely to be reported to the authorities. Earlier this year, Wired also reported on a web portal called the Thin Blue Line Project, which was supposed to use GPS to track Muslim “threats.” According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, it actually monitored harmless civilians, including mosque worshippers and Muslim student organizations.

Although the French Quarter app is still operational, the Thin Blue Line Project and the Georgetown app are both now defunct. While there is very little evidence that crowdsourced crime-fighting apps are effective, many police departments remain optimistic about their power to prevent criminal acts. If the growing support for BlackBox in the law enforcement community is any indication, anti-terrorism apps won’t be going away. In an era of heightened racism and surveillance, these tools seem more likely to ruin lives than to save them.

          The Peril of Taking Bad Advice   
The story is not so much about the letter-writer, Easily Swayed. It is not so much about Polly’s response, which is not worth the time or the trouble. What interests me in this story, which I will report in detail, is that a young woman was swayed, influenced, pushed and nudged out of a good and loving relationship… for reasons that make no sense to her or to us.

So, the story is about peer pressure and about advice columnists, like Dear Sugar—and No, I haven’t read it—that promote an attitude that hurts women. It hurts women by undermining good relationships in order to push these women to become independent and alone and in therapy. Peer pressure tells young women that they must not marry before their careers have blossomed. In that way they can be looking for husbands in their mid thirties and look forward to having toddlers running around the house when they are promoted to the executive suite. What is wrong with this picture?

It doesn’t matter. The narrative influences people and breaks up perfectly good relationships. We do not know whether ES’s relationship was one of them. She thinks that it was. She ends up thinking that she made the mistake of a lifetime. Polly gets it, even though she still thinks, lamely, that it’s a question of how badly ES wants her ex.

Polly writes:

You can’t come to love out of fear or desperation or depression. You have to come to love from a place of strength. If you feel solid and not neurotic and you’re letting your feelings flow and you STILL WANT YOUR EX in every cell and you know he’s the one for you, a million times better than every dumb guy you are forced to date, then go to him. But as far as I can tell, you’re not there yet.

Yes, it feels like a risk. But every day alive on this planet is a risk. Your big challenge right now is not to decide about your ex. Your big challenge is to learn to become calm and present and even invigorated by the giant risk of being alive.

When you made a huge mistake you will be suffering from serious mental anguish. You do not have to puff up your strength and do more therapy to recognize the mistake. As far as I can tell ES is there, right now. Why is Polly telling her not to try to rectify her error? The last paragraph is psycho-blather, an embarrassing piece of silliness. ES’s challenge is to accept that she made a mistake and to beg for forgiveness.

Now, in case you are curious about the true story, here is Easily Swayed’s letter, excerpted:

I started dating my boyfriend when I was 23 and he was 22, and we had six lovely years together — some long-distance, some in the same city. He was my first real relationship, but I mostly felt a deep sense of contentment, surety, and love during our time together. We moved in together last year, and I soon began having doubts about whether I was ready to settle down, whether I should have more life experiences on my own, and whether I could be happy being with him for the rest of my life.

For reasons that escape me, young women are being told that they must accumulate a series of life experiences—meaning what, exactly?—before settling down. In truth, if a young woman finds a man she loves who would make a great husband, why delay? In order to have a few more hookups while being blackout drunk? In order to develop some good singles routines before trying to establish couples routines?

Anyway, ES made a decision based on an advice column. Generally speaking this is a bad idea, not because all of these columns offer bad advice—some do, some don’t—but because the columnists rarely know enough to grasp the complexity of the situation. 

ES continues:

And, after months of research and swimming through doubts, I deduced that the prevailing advice seems to be the line from Dear Sugar: Wanting to leave is enough.

Apparently, ES is also a reader of Ask Polly, so she credits Polly too:

So I did it. I took everyone’s advice — yours, Sugar’s, the myriad of commenters on those message board-threads — and followed my gut. I packed up my stuff and moved out of the apartment we shared, and I haven’t talked to him in four months. It’s the bravest, most disruptive thing I’ve ever done in my peaceful, easy life.

Now she is doing what the columnists think that she should be doing. And naturally, she is going to therapy and learning all kinds of truths about how she is easily influenced:

On the one hand, things are going well. I’m dipping my toe into dating for the first time, really — an adventure! I’m living with two of my best friends in a great new neighborhood. I’m journaling, going to therapy, exercising, and enjoying my wonderful friends and great job. Most importantly, I no longer have that cloud of crushing guilt hanging over my head when I come home at night. I’m glad I don’t have to wonder about, or long for, something unknown any more.

She has the life that they were all telling her that she should have. How’s that working out?

But intense regret keeps washing over me. I miss him so terribly, and I don’t understand why I couldn’t stick it out and fix what was wrong — or even what was wrong in the first place. I’ve heard from friends that this has been incredibly hard for him, and that really truly kills me. We had a very loving separation, and I feel like I want to be with him when I’m older, but I’m not ready for the commitment of what he represents. And trusting in “fate” to help us out down the line is scary. I don’t get why my feelings changed so quickly after years of happiness and a settled knowledge that he was the one for me. It’s not even that I’m scared of not finding someone else — if he’s not it, I’ll be fine. But this relationship was so special and pure and loving and supportive and truly, truly good — I’d be surprised if I find something that comes close in my lifetime, or makes me feel as safe.

After the de rigueurassertion that she has learned so much from therapy, ES gets to the heart of the matter.  She did something stupid, something is not in her own interest, because she allowed herself to be played.

I can already tell that I’m learning important things about myself and facing some hard truths. What I can’t get over is the thought that he could be gone forever, that I’ve hurt him so deeply. I keep thinking maybe there was a chance I could have grown into some of these truths while preserving the relationship, and I’m obsessing over the thought that I destroyed something so important just to date around and have some more years of singledom. Some of the things that were making me so miserable being in the relationship now truly seem so trite, maybe a symptom of personal change rather than a sign of anything wrong with us. If my loving, lasting, peaceful, happy relationship with an insanely generous, handsome, funny, caring, and forgiving man could be demolished by me having a couple of months of doubts and soul-seeking, how the fuck am I supposed to commit to anyone? 

She concludes:

When I think about him, I can feel my heart still breaking. I want children with this man, I want to grow old with him and die with him, but I need to grow apart for some reason I can’t explain. Where do I go from here? Should I not have followed everyone’s advice?

She might not be able to explain why she has made such a mess of things, but the clear answer is that she succumbed to peer pressure and listened to bad advice columnists.

          The Enchantment of Pandora - Walking On A Cloud   
Yesterday was quiet a day...I firstly received news from my GP that blew my mind, I was not expecting to have an A1c result of 5.8 - but I did - I went in to that appointment with the expectation of it to reflect positively that the NR and Lantus were/are working together to bring my results down and it more than did that. Now I can't wait to hear from my Endo's registrar to see what my Endo thinks of it; but if my GP's reaction is anything to go by, I think he'll be just as thrilled.

After the Doctor I had to test my bg and was also due for morning tea, which was about an hour late, I found this interesting cafe. When I tested I was having a hypo, my second one for the day so I ate the jelly beans and waited for fifteen minutes...relieved that it had gone up to normal I continued on with my morning tea and flipped through the newspaper. Then by the time I got home, I was almost due for lunch and again tested to find I was having another hypo...bloody h3ll how is this happening...my third for the day and in that 24 hour period I had five, one more and I would have to go to hospital. Not only was it alarming to be having my third hypo for the day, it was also the lowest I've been and quiet seriously the next step from there is hospital.

The Eating Disordered part of my brain has being taking the diabetes information and distorted it so I was getting a f%!^ked up interpretation of the information. When my eating disorder gets information on that all the information I was focussing on was carbs and sugar...cutting the carbs down to almost nothing and not having any sugar at all...so I was eating yeah, but I wasn't getting anything from the food because Ana was in-charge. It's kind of hard to explain, but was still restricting myself and controlling things but in a different way but the same disastrous results and I could have ended up in hospital yesterday.

My lantus dose has being cut back, as Ana also liked me to have basically no sugar in my blood stream at all so I was trying to get as low as I possibly could without having an actual hypo. No more. So this morning I was 4.6 and I have to get happy with being under 100 instead of 'fine lining it' chasing the sweet spot. The hypo's I had before - getting into trouble - were quiet serious, it was like I was 'drunk' like if you didn't know I am diabetic you would assume that I had being drinking as I was unsteady on my feet and really nearly fell over, shaky as all heck and I was freezing cold [still am today actually] but I had a chill down the length of my spine like my spinal fluid was freezing cold, I was not in a good way at all.

My eating, well the last few days had being alright, but as I've just said Ana has being in charge so while I was eating it wasn't the best. So now I have to make sure I eat without being restrictive and get enough energy from the food. So last night I made a baked dinner with pumpkin, sweet potato, carrot and chicken drumsticks and I even left the fat on the drummies...I was thinking of everything that Kit and Mike have being telling me and so I left it on and ate it too. After having the baked dinner my bg was 5.7 so I was pretty pleased with that and inspired me to take better care of myself. I technically, should not have had a hypo after the Doctor appointment yesterday as I ate a normal breakfast without restriction; then for morning tea I ordered a soy latte (i shouldn't have really had milk as it's a carb but I treated myself as I coffee only when out] I had to have the jelly beans and then had the biscuits I brought from home for morning tea [I have to take them with me as I cannot buy gluten-free & egg-free biscuits in cafe's here] so I don't know, it's in the past now I'm looking forward and learning from this whole experience. I hope this makes sense.

This LFC Double Anniversary Boxed Shirt celebrates 125 Years of the Liverpool Way and is exclusive to Liverpool FC Retail.

With a first release of 500 - do not miss your chance to purchase this truly special set.

Box Contents

  • 1 x LFC Mens Replica Home Shirt 17/18 (See full product information)

  • 25 historical photos including club founder John Houlding, an aerial view of Anfield Stadium and images of legendary players.

The 1892 Replica shirt features a 100% Cotton replica of Liverpool Football Clubs first ever shirt - a long sleeved polo style shirt in blue and white with a three button fastening. The shirt features a red embroidery of the 1892 crest, found on the clubs early documents to create a unique replica product.

Box Details

The front inside of the box  displays the timeline of the club - all the way from 1892 when the club was formed to 2015 when Klopp takes charge at Anfield.

To the back inside is the LFC Roll of Honour which lists the clubs 18 League Titles, 5 European Cups, 7 FA Cups, 8 League Cups, 3 UEFA Cups, 3 European Super Cups and 15 FA Charity Shields.

Size:

37cm x 41cm x 8cm

Liverpool FC Curator, Stephen Done “The original shirts would have been made of very heavy cotton and looked and felt like a classic rugby shirt. They had no names or numbers on the back, and there was no club badge, as was typical of the period. In researching this new replica for 2017, a decision was made to opt for a lighter weight cotton to suit modern tastes, but the museum curator undertook careful analysis of the surviving photographic evidence to ensure the blue and white halves are correctly replicated and the decision was made to add the club letterhead taken from a letter dated 1892, to provide a Liverpool FC crest. Although not strictly accurate to the actual playing shirts of the time, it represents what ‘might have been’ and in a style completely in keeping the period. This shirt is a superb tribute to a side that won the Lancashire League and the Liverpool Senior Cup (in a final against Everton FC, played at the ground of Bootle FC in the first-ever Merseyside Derby), as well as the Lancashire Reserve League”

          Mr Liverpool Ronnie Moran The Official Life Story   

Ronnie Moran has had a unique life. His 49 years service as player, coach, assistant manager, caretaker manager and more included some of Liverpool Football Club s most successful eras and he became one of the most respected figures in the game. And his son, Paul, had a unique life. As a football fanatic, he was able to get close to the inner sanctum of the rampant red machine. He got on the team bus, in the dressing room, got behind the scenes at the famous Melwood training ground and even went to the chippy for the players! Now he wants to help preserve his dad's memories in a book that will do justice to a Liverpool legend. Mr Liverpool: Ronnie Moran: is the official life story of one of the most important men in the history of one of European football's giant clubs.

From growing up in the suburbs of his home city, he joined his idols on the football pitch as a player, helping them to promotion from the old Second Division before going on to win the league title as part of Bill Shankly s Anfield revolution. Moving into the backroom team he went on to serve under managers such as Shankly, Bob Paisley, Joe Fagan and Kenny Dalglish, the club winning 26 of its 41 major honours while Ronnie was coaching. He even got to lead the Reds out at Wembley in 1992 as caretaker manager as his side won the FA Cup.

Moran's career was one of dedication, excellence and longevity as he completed 49 seasons on the staff in his various roles, working with some of the best players this country has ever seen. Written by Arnie Baldursson and Carl Clemente of the highly-respected website lfchistory.net, this book is packed with memories from dozens of those players as well as being a historical record of a career which is unlikely to ever be repeated at any top-flight club. Although he now suffers from vascular dementia, Ronnie's own recollections from across the decades are brought together, while his son provides stories and insight into a special time for the Morans and the club. With forewords from Roy Evans and Phil Thompson, and contributions from legends such as Kenny Dalglish, Alan Hansen, Bruce Grobbelaar and Jamie Carragher, this book will fascinate Liverpool fans. Backed by the club itself, no collection of books on the greatest figures in LFC history is complete without Mr Liverpool: Ronnie Moran.
