先日、社内で定期的に行なわれているフロントエンド会にお邪魔してきました(podcastが配信されています)。jser.infoというサイトを参照しながら雑談していたのですが、最近のフロントエンドの動向を知るという目的にはこのサイトなかなかよさそうでした。

機械学習勉強会でもランチタイムに最近の話題を見ながら雑談しているのですが、ネタになるエントリ一覧とそれに対するコメントは社外に公開して別に問題ないなと思ったので、不定期報という形で出してみることにしました。自然言語処理も自分がカバーできる範囲限られているし、自然言語処理以外の機械学習の話はかなりカバーできないので、たれこみフォームも作りました。耳寄りな情報、お待ちしております:)

          Oahu Rail may tax Outer Islands        
SUBHEAD: Hawaii may seek higher state taxes to cover Honolulu Authority Rapid Transit cost overrun.

Image above: HART rail guideway car photo-op over Farrington Highway at Leokane Street near Waipahu Sugar Mill. From Civil Beat article below. Photo by Cory Lum.

I hope the neighbor island folks reading this message are ready to fight the Legislature to help stop the biggest fraud ever perpetrated upon our people since statehood, the Honolulu rail boondoggle.

Why should any of you help pay for this fraud? The state uses the argument that it helps other counties with [reasonable and legal] public projects so why not require other counties to help with this illegal and fraudulent one to continue the fleecing of our people and continue to cause irreparable financial harm to the people of Hawaii for another three or more generations, all to protect the profits of the wealthy, power elite?

When will the people wake the hell up and rebel against our crooked and corrupt city and state government, the most corrupt in the USA, and stop this abuse of power?

Public testimony will be accepted however, please avoid repetitive and duplicative testimony.

Testimony must be submitted via email to the Senate Committee on Transportation and Energy at: (TRETestimony@capitol.hawaii.gov)

Oahu rail seeks more funds

SUBHEAD: Lawmakers consider making Outer Islands help pay for Oahu's troubled rail project.

By Nathan Eagle on 7 August 2017 for Civil -Beat 
(http://www.civilbeat.org/2017/08/lawmakers-consider-having-neighbor-islands-help-pay-for-oahus-troubled-rail-project/)

With a special session set for the end of August, the Hawaii Legislature will lay out several funding options for the public at a briefing next week.

Hawaii lawmakers are weighing five options to provide funding to complete Honolulu’s over-budget rail line from Kapolei to Ala Moana, including a statewide increase in the general excise and hotel taxes, according to a state Senate presentation obtained by Civil Beat.

The Legislature plans to hold a special session later this month to try again to reach a deal on how to pay for the 20-mile, 21-station project, which is now estimated to cost $10 billion.

Key House and Senate committees have scheduled a joint public information briefing Monday morning at the Capitol. The new options to fund the project, along with the choices under consideration before the Legislature adjourned in May, are expected to play a central role in the negotiations.

The draft 52-page presentation, provided by a state senator Monday, lays the groundwork for a case to have Kauai, Maui and Hawaii counties help fund Honolulu’s beleaguered project. It notes that Oahu subsidizes harbors, airports and highways on the neighbor islands.

The presentation includes options to extend the 0.5 percent general excise tax surcharge for Oahu; increase the GET surcharge for Oahu; extend the GET surcharge for Oahu and increase the hotel tax for Oahu; or establish a statewide GET surcharge and hotel tax increase.

The Federal Transit Administration is kicking in $1.55 billion for the project. It could withhold some of those funds, particularly if the rail line has to stop short of its plan to go from Kapolei to Ala Moana Center. The project was expected to cost $5.2 billion just a few years ago.

House Speaker Scott Saiki has said the city’s latest figures project a nearly $1.4 billion shortfall from now to 2024.

The two chambers ended the session far apart. The Senate left with a bill to extend Oahu’s 0.5 percent general excise tax surcharge for 10 years, until 2037, to help complete the rail project.

That’s the option Honolulu Mayor Kirk Caldwell and the tourism industry supported.

The House pushed a bill that would have allowed the GET surcharge to be levied for just one additional year, to 2028, while increasing the state’s 9.25 percent transient accommodations tax for 10 years.

“In spite of our impasse during the 2017 legislative session, the Legislature understands the importance in crafting a legislative solution that will provide the City and County of Honolulu a dedicated revenue stream,” said Senate President Ron Kouchi in a press release announcing the public briefing.

The briefing starts at 10 a.m., Monday, in the Capitol auditorium. The special session is set to run from Aug. 28 to Sept. 1.

See the draft presentation, which a state senator said was created by the Senate Ways and Means Committee at link below.

Whether one is Pro-Rail or Anti-Rail, there’s something virtually everyone in the state agrees about – the cost of building the Honolulu Rail is getting out of hand.

Not only that, serious questions have been raised about how well the funds already invested in this project have been spent.

Law professor Randy Roth, who has a long history advocating for the public good, appears on E Hana Kakou with Dr. Akina to discuss why it is time to hold our government leaders responsible for the progress of the Rail.

Rail Cost Spirals Out of Control

SUBHEAD: Watch short video and sign the petition here to require a forensic audit of the rail.

 By Staff on 22 July 2017 for Grassroots Institute of Hawaii
(https://drive.google.com/file/d/0Bw_NDLg6EbbmRE8yWU9qZFRBUWc/view)


Video above: Group seeks to audit the Honolulu rail project with "Where is our Money Going?" From (https://youtu.be/X8Fa2qr2djg).
 Longtime journalist Mark Coleman talked recently with ThinkTech Hawaii host Tim Apicella about his recent Grassroot Institute of Hawaii article titled “Honolulu rail clearly a fiasco,”and suggested that now would be a ideal time to subject the over-budget, behind-schedule project to an independent forensic audit.

In particular, Coleman suggested that the state legislators use their upcoming special session to order such an audit, which would allow them to avoid extending or raising any state taxes until they have better information about why the city’s rail project has veered so far off track — while yet so much of it remains tobe built.

The timing is apt, he told Apicella, because the City Council just approved selling bonds to fund construction of the rail through to next year, thus taking pressure off the Legislature to consider anything before it starts its regular session in January 2018.

Coleman said transportation experts warned city officials years before the rail project was even started that it would be a “gigantic white elephant,” and by now it’s clear that just about everything that could have gone wrong with the project has — though nobody has a definite explanation as to why.



Has HART committed federal crimes?

SUBHEAD: Is falsification of federal documents, lying to officials to get $1.55B HART a crime?

By Ed Wagner on 9 August 2017 on Google Drive -
(https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0Bw_NDLg6EbbmNnI2bnJlV0o3TGM?usp=sharing)

The people of Hawaii seek Congressional, DOJ, & FBI investigations into the following allegations against Mayor Caldwell, City Council, HART, Developer DR Horton, construction unions, Pacific Resources Partnership (PRP), DLNR, regarding the Honolulu rail project:

Systemic fraud, waste, and abuse of power, violations of public procurement codes, violations of the Hawaii State Constitution's Public Trust Doctrine, violations of basic ethical and moral principles, perjury, deliberate falsification of Federal documents / lying to Federal officials, deliberate misrepresentation of facts, deliberate fraud, bribery, racketeering, malfeasance, graft, conspiracy to defraud, and criminal offenses directly related to obtaining $1.55B in federal funds for the Honolulu rail project.

Those advocating for a forensic audit & investigations include former Hawaii Gov. Ben Cayetano, retired UH Law Professor Randy Roth, UH Civil Engineering Professor, Panos Prevedouros, President of Grassroot Institute and OHA Trustee, Dr. Keli’i Akina, former Army War College faculty instructor, retired Col Al Frenzel, retired businessmen, 2 attorneys, an accountant, and concerned citizens.

Dr. Keli’i Akina submitted testimony to the House Committee on Transportation & Infrastructure, Subcommittee on Railroads regarding these issues.

All major newspapers and TV networks around the country have been notified about the dire situation in Hawaii.

It is argued that the City is jeopardizing its credit rating and solvency over this project and someone has to stop the bleeding, stop the irreparable hard this rail project is causing our people today, and for the next 3 generations, and folks in Washington seem to be turning a blind eye to this matter.

In lieu of reviewing rail-related documents online, I request a formal meeting with a Honolulu FBI agent to discuss this urgent matter, a meeting to include those advocating for these investigations.

Others have written to FTA, OIG, GAO, and Congress, and spoke to some officials. One high ranking official stated to one individual that perjury to obtain federal funds for rail appears to be involved.

The Honolulu rail is likely a massive government cover up similar to Watergate, but called HARTgate.

Please help us. This dire situation is reaching critical mass.

Messages sent to Washington and FBI. The city deliberately falsified federal documents, lied to federal officials, and lied to the public. I encourage everyone to submit a request to the FBI to conduct an investigation.

          Perth trip – Prologue        
I always wanted to visit the Down Under i.e Australia and New Zealand. Both are colloquially known as Down Under due to their position in the Southern Hemisphere below the equator.

Initially I plan to visit Australia during Chinese New Year but after doing some research, I dropped the plan as it is summer season and February is the hottest month in Australia. I was contemplating booking Qantas as it is offering S$700 return fare to Melbourne but we couldn't find a pair of friend to join us. In the end, hubby and I decided to visit Australia on our own. Scoot promotion came along and return fare to Perth is S$266 which is relatively cheap. I booked 25kg and 40kg for departure and return leg for one pax instead of booking individual baggage as it is slightly cheaper this way.

I make use of the Labour Day holiday in May for this 10 days trip. I have planned to depart on Saturday and return on the following Sunday but there was no cheap tickets so we depart on Friday instead. Scoot flight timing is usually not favourable either on the departure or the return leg. The departure flight is noon timing and reach Perth in the evening while the return flight departs in the evening and reach Singapore at midnight. I would prefer a red eye flight to Perth since the flight duration is 5hrs.
Map of Australia (extracted from Lonely Planet)

Australia is the sixth largest country in the world by land area and it's capital is Canberra. Australia main cities are served by numerous airlines from Singapore which makes it one of the top holiday destination among Singaporeans:
- Sydney: Singapore Airlines, Scoot, British Airways, Qantas
- Melbourne: Singapore Airlines, Scoot, Jetstar, Emirates, Qantas
- Brisbane: Singapore Airlines, Emirates, Qantas
- Gold Coast: Scoot
- Perth: Singapore Airlines, Qantas, Scoot, Jetstar
- Adelaide: Singapore Airlines
- Cairns: Silkair
- Darwin: Silkair

Perth is the capital and largest city in Western Australia and Western Australia is the largest state in Australia. It is the fourth most populous city in Australia after Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane. After I have started to do research on Perth, I discovered that everything is expensive in Australia, ranging from accommodation, attraction admission ticket to food. At least, the car rental is reasonable and pertrol is slightly cheaper than Singapore.

All visitor to Australia except Australian and New Zealand citizens requires a visa to visit Australia irregardless of the visit. There are 3 types of visitor visa depending on the nationalities and Singaporean falls under the Electronic Travel Authority (subclass 601)​. Visa can be applied online and processing time takes less than a day. Although there is no visa application charges, there is a service charge of AUD20 for online application.

Taxi from airport to Perth CBD cost at least A$40 ~ S$44 while the Connect Shuttle cost A$15 ~ S$17 per pax. The cheapest way to get to Perth CBD is taking the free shuttle bus from Perth Airport T1 to T3 and board Transperth bus number 37 or 40 which cost A$4.40  ~ S$5 per pax. The journey time to Perth CBD range from 40 - 60 min. The other option is to rent the car directly at airport itself but since we will be reaching Perth in the evening, it's not advisable to drive to the outskirt at night.

In Perth CBD & Fremantle, it is easy to navigate around public transport as there are reliable and extensive public transport networks. There are free CAT bus services in Perth, Fremantle and Joondalup. In addition to the free CAT bus service, travelling on public transport is free within Perth Free Transit Zone. However it is recommended to rent a car when travelling beyond Perth.

There are many car rental companies in Perth and some allow rent and return at different location. After doing the research, we decided to rent a car from Bayswater which has outlets in both Perth CBD and near Perth Airport but it does not allow rental and return of car at different location. Bayswater offers competitive rate at A$300 for a Toyota Corolla Sedan car for 6 days rental for driving within 500km from Perth. The excess damage is capped at A$400 and can be reduced to A$0 with a top up of A$7 per day. Extra charges such as rental of GPS is A$7 per day and each child booster is A$7 per day (capped at A$70). Petrol price in Australia is currently A$1.40/ litre which is slightly cheaper than the petrol price in Singapore. 

Even though I have travelled to many countries, I have yet to purchase a local SIM card, not even when I travelled to Europe as I relied on the maps which I have printed out. However I will be buying local SIM card in Perth. It's much value for money compared to renting a GPS since we can use the data to surf net on top of the google map which we require. The cheapest prepaid card cost A$1 per day and comes with 30min local calls, unlimited local SMS and 40MB data per day and I have decided to buy the A$2 prepaid plan which includes unlimited local call, unlimited local SMS and 500MB data per day.

As we will first be travelling North and then to the South, we will be staying at 4 different hotels and B&B throughout this trip. In Perth, we will be staying at Ibis Perth Hotel as it is conveniently situated at Perth CBD Murray Street. There was 40% Accor discount for at least 2 consecutive nights booking hence I saved around S$120 for the 4 nights in Perth. Hotels under the Accor brand range from from economy brand (Ibis etc), midscale brands (Mercure, Novotel etc), Upscale brands (Grand Mercure, Pullman etc) to luxury brand (Sofitel) and membership is free. In the outskirt, we will be staying in B&B instead of hotels. It's more intimate since B&B usually have fewer rooms and those B&B which we will be staying includes complimentary breakfast.

For Margaret River Region, I have done intensive research from Margaret River Visitor Centre and I have even request a visitor guide and map which was mailed to me free of charge (Email: welcome@margaretriver.com). In the 2004 visitor guide, there is a list of wineries and breweries in the Margaret River Region and I'm spoilt for choice when selecting which one to visit.

          21D, LLEGÓ LA HORA DE LAS CLÁUSULAS SUELO DE HIPOTECAS        
El Tribunal de Justicia de la Unión Europea (TJUE) ha fallado hoy a favor de los clientes en el caso de las indemnizaciones de las cláusulas suelo de las hipotecas. Las entidades tendrán que devolver todo lo que los clientes han abonado de más durante la vida del préstamo y no solo a partir del 9 de mayo de 2013, como fijó el Tribunal Supremo.
"La jurisprudencia española que limita en el tiempo los efectos de la declaración de nulidad de las cláusulas suelo contenidas en los contratos de préstamo hipotecario en España es incompatible con el Derecho de la Unión. Tal limitación da lugar a una protección de los consumidores incompleta e insuficiente, por lo que no constituye un medio adecuado y eficaz para que cese el uso de las cláusulas abusivas", asegura el TJUE en un comunicado.
"La declaración judicial del carácter abusivo de una cláusula debe tener como consecuencia el restablecimiento de la situación en la que se encontraría el consumidor de no haber existido dicha cláusula", precisa la institución.
Las cláusulas suelo se incluyeron en la mayoría de contratos de préstamo hipotecario variable para poner un tipo de interés mínimo que el cliente debería abonar, independientemente de lo que bajase eventualmente el euribor.
El Tribunal Supremo español declaró abusivas la mayoría de estas cláusulas pero limitó la compensación: la cláusula suelo dejaría de aplicarse a partir del 9 de mayo de 2013, pero no se restituiría lo pagado de más anteriormente.
El TJUE se tenía que pronunciar sobre si esa limitación de la compensación vulnera o no la normativa europea de protección al consumidor. Las cifras concretas de impacto no están claras. El banco de inversión Goldman Sachs sitúa la factura en 3.000 millones de euros, pero un informe del Banco de España, citado por las entidades durante la vista oral del caso, apunta que si la sentencia falla a favor de los clientes, el impacto en el sector sería de entre 5.000 millones y 7.500 millones de euros. La institución no ha hecho público ese informe a pesar de que los abogados de los bancos aseguran haber tenido acceso a él.
La magnitud del golpe irá por barrios. Según Goldman Sachs, BBVA será el banco más afectado, con 1.815 millones de euros. CaixaBank ha cifrado en 750 millones el coste de una sentencia contraria a sus intereses. Los siguientes en la lista, según el banco de inversión estadounidense, son Banco Popular, que ya habría provisionado 350 millones de euros, y Bankia, con 160 millones.
Miguel Roig
21D: llegó la hora de la cláusula suelo
La Justicia europea ha dado esta mañana una buena noticia a los aproximadamente tres millones de españoles que tienen contratadas hipotecas con cláusulas suelo al declarar incompatible con el derecho comunitario la decisión del Tribunal Supremo de limitar los efectos retroactivos de su devolución cuando estas fueron declaradas abusivas y nulas en mayo del 2014. Los bancos van a tener que devolverles todo lo que les han cobrado de más en virtud de estas cláusulas, hasta 7.500 millones de euros en total, de acuerdo con diferentes estimaciones.

Contra este fallo ya no cabe recurso. Las acciones de los bancos españoles más expuestos a las cláusulas suelo -Banco Popular, Sabadell y Caixabank- caían hasta el 11% en Bolsa tras conocerse la sentencia europea.
Las cláusulas impedían a sus titulares beneficiarse de rebajas por debajo de un umbral predeterminado
Las cláusulas suelo estaban incluidas en muchas de las hipotecas a tipo de interés variable firmadas durante los años del boom en España e impedían a sus titulares beneficiarse de posibles rebajas por debajo de un umbral predeterminado. El Tribunal Supremo declaró el pasado 9 de mayo del 2013 que estas cláusulas eran abusivas ya que los consumidores no habían sido informados adecuadamente de sus implicaciones prácticas.
Sin embargo, alegando razones de seguridad jurídica y estabilidad financiera, decidió limitar en el tiempo los efectos de esa declaración, de modo que los bancos sólo tenían que devolver a los clientes las cantidades cobradas de más a los clientes a partir de la fecha en que dictó sentencia.
Carácter abusivo”
No todos los clientes se quedaron conformes. Algunos siguieron luchando en los tribunales para que se les devolviera las cantidades íntegras cobradas desde la firma de los contratos. Un juzgado de Granada y la Audiencia provincial de Alicante decidieron elevar varias preguntas prejudiciales al Tribunal de Justicia de la Unión Europea para aclarar si la sentencia del Supremo es conforme con el derecho comunitario y poder resolver varios casos acumulados. El informe preliminar del abogado general del Tribunal europeo avaló en julio la decisión del Supremo pero la sentencia final ha ido por la dirección contraria.
“El Derecho de la Unión se opone a una jurisprudencia nacional en virtud de la cual los efectos resolutorios vinculados a la nulidad de una cláusula abusiva se limitan a las cantidades indebidamente pagadas con posterioridad al pronunciamiento de la resolución judicial mediante se declara su carácter abusivo”, afirma el fallo judicial dictado esta mañana en Luxemburgo. Lo contrario, alega, no daría una protección eficaz al consumidor, de acuerdo con los previsto por la directiva europea y limitaría el “efecto disuasorio” de declarar nulas unas cláusulas abusivas.
Los bancos deben restituir “las ventajas obtenidas indebidamente”
“La declaración judicial del carácter abusivo de una cláusula debe tener como consecuencia el restablecimiento de la situación en la que se encontraría el consumidor de no haber existido dicha cláusula”. Es decir: el resultado del proceso debe ser que el profesional, en este caso los bancos, restituyan “las ventajas obtenidas indebidamente en detrimento del consumidor”.
La limitación en el tiempo que fijó en su día el Tribunal Supremo español resulta en “una protección incompleta e insuficiente de los consumidores que no constituye un medio adecuado y eficaz para que cese el uso de las cláusulas abusivas, en contra de lo que exige la directiva”, concluyen los jueces españoles.
El Banco de España dio a conocer un informe que estima en 7.500 millones la cantidad a pagar
Durante la vista oral del juicio celebrada en Luxemburgo, el Banco de España dio a conocer un informe que estima en unos 7.500 millones de euros la cantidad afectada por la potencial declaración de retroactividad total de la nulidad de las cláusulas. La directiva sobre protección de los consumidores de 1993 en que se basa la sentencia de hoy es la misma que ha obligado al gobierno español a reformar en varias ocasiones la ley hipotecaria, en particular cláusulas que afectaban a la posibilidad de los particulares de defenderse de las órdenes de desahucio.
En general, los titulares de las hipotecas con cláusulas sólo suelo fueron conscientes de las implicaciones jurídicas y económicas de sus contratos cuando descubrieron que no podían beneficiarse de la fuerte caída de los tipos de interés registrada a partir del 2009. El euríbor ha seguido bajando desde entonces y lleva casi un año en negativo.

          El Gobierno en funciones ha dado ya los primeros pasos para la posible fusión entre Bankia y BMN, (Documentos e información)        

El Gobierno en funciones ha dado ya los primeros pasos para la posible fusión entre Bankia y BMN. El FROB, dueño de Bankia y BMN, se ha reunido para analizar la operación y se espera que anuncie en las próximas horas la contratación de asesores externos para que analicen la mejor opción para la firma que preside Carlos Egea, y entre las que destaca esta fusión. Economía ya se ha pronunciado a favor. Bankia también deberá pronunciarse sobre la posible operación que se llevaría acabo en 2017.
16 09 28 BANKIA CNMV, Hecho relevante fusión Bankia-BMN DOC-20160928
16 09 28 BANKIA FROB, Anlalisis fusión Bankia BMN
El Gobierno en funciones pretende despejar el futuro de la nacionalizada BMN antes de que finalice el año, aunque no será hasta que se forme el nuevo Ejecutivo cuando se lleve a cabo la salida del Estado del capital de este banco bajo cualquier vía . De momento, su destino parece que pasa por su integración con Bankia, aunque para llevar a cabo esta operación debe aún plantearse algunos pasos, entre ellos que se oficialice el proceso, lo que puede suceder en las próximas horas, según han afirmado a este periódico fuentes conocedoras del proceso.
El primer paso será que el FROB, dueño del 65% del capital de Bankia y de BMN, anuncie la contratación de los bancos de inversión que deben analizar las mejores opciones para la entidad encabezada por la antigua Cajamurcia. La comisión rectora de este organismo está reunido en estos momentos para abordar este asunto.
La idea es que antes de que finalice el año quede más o menos despejado su futuro, pese a que la posible operación de fusión se lleve a cabo en 2017 para que cuente con las bendiciones del nuevo Gobierno.

بخصوص المبادرات الجمعوية المتواجدة على الساحة حاليا فنحن كمجموعة عمل لا ننظم شيئا بل يتم الاتصال بنا للاشراف على تاطير اي نشاط و ننسق مع الاطار النقابي او الجمعوي لمناقشة ظروف الاشتغال وفق ما يسمح به الجدول الزمني و التزامات المهنة لمجموعة العمل التي تؤطر هذه التكوينات الحضورية و قد لاحظنا ان هناك فعلا مجموعة من الاطر مستعدة للاشراف سواء بمقابل مادي او رمزي و اي جهة نظمت شيئا فاننا ننشره و لا يهمنا من يكون بقدر ما يهمنا هل يفيد الاستاذ فقط

          Ð˜Ð³Ñ€Ð° "Бесконечное лето" версия 1.1        

Встретив на улице Семена, главного героя игры, вы бы никогда не обратили на него внимания – действительно, подобных людей в каждом городе тысячи и даже сотни тысяч. Но однажды с ним приключается совершенно необычное происшествие: он засыпает зимой в автобусе, а просыпается... посреди жаркого лета. Перед ним – пионерлагерь «Совенок», а позади – прошлая жизнь.
Чтобы разгадать, что же с ним случилось, Семену придется получше узнать местных обитателей (а может, даже встретить любовь), разобраться в лабиринтах сложных человеческих взаимоотношений и своих собственных проблемах, решить загадки лагеря. И главное – как вернуться обратно или не возвращаться вовсе?

          ESTACIÓN DE AUTOBUSES SIN CONSENSO, OTRO NUEVO ATROPELLO        
Nota de prensa emitida por la Federación Comarcal de Asociaciones de Vecinos de Alcalá de Henares respecto al anuncio unilateral del equipo de gobierno sobre el traslado de la actual Estación de Autobuses a una nueva ubicación, otra vez como entonces, temporal:

Durante años los vecinos que viven en la calle Brihuega, junto a la actual estación de autobuses interurbanos, haNuestro reconocimiento a su trabajo por esta reivindicación y por las sentencias judiciales a su favor que esperamos se cumplan en la mayor brevedad; no debemos olvidar que dicha ubicación era provisional. 
n reivindicado un nuevo emplazamiento de esta infraestructura pública debido a los problemas de contaminación, las molestias por ruido y los daños estructurales que sufren en sus bloques de viviendas.

Desde la Federación Comarcal de Asociaciones de Vecinos de Alcalá de Henares (FCAVAH) valoramos que la nueva ubicación propuesta en el antiguo recinto ferial, frente a la Isla del Colegio NO es la adecuada. En primer lugar, se plantea sobre una parcela con uso de Espacio Libre – Zona Verde*, que debe ser protegida y mantenida para el fin marcado en su uso asignado. Además, es un espacio en el que cada lunes se desarrolla un mercado local que sirve de punto de venta para diversos productores y comerciantes de nuestra comarca, además de un espacio de encuentro de vecinas y vecinos que acuden a dicho mercado. También hay que destacar que esta parcela cumple las funciones de aliviadero de aparcamiento cuando tienen lugar eventos como el mercado medieval o las propias fiestas locales.

Esta ubicación propuesta NO daría cobertura a la mayoría de los barrios de nuestra ciudad, no estaría en comunicación con las estaciones de cercanías de la ciudad y no resultaría accesible además a otros vecinos de la comarca que deben acudir a Alcalá para ir al Centro de Especialidades, Hospital y/o para realizar trámites administrativos diversos. Tenemos serias reservas sobre su parte más técnica, dado que esta localización está en el punto más alejado de la comunicación con la Autovía A-2, punto de entrada de la gran mayoría de los autobuses interurbanos que dan servicio a nuestra ciudad.

Desde la FCAVAH queremos manifestar nuestra preocupación por los altos costes en euros que sería necesario desembolsar, dada la deuda actual del consistorio y el elevado gasto que supondría para una ubicación que califican como temporal. Igualmente queremos exponer nuestra sorpresa y preocupación con esta nueva acción que quiere llevar adelante el consistorio local unilateralmente, no habiendo sido puesto en común con los agentes sociales que participamos en la Mesa de Movilidad local, pero, sobre todo, que un aspecto tan relevante no sea consultado previamente con la ciudadanía.

Exponemos, por tanto, no sólo motivos para decir NO a la construcción de la estación de buses en el antiguo recinto ferial, sino una reflexión del servicio a los ciudadanos (locales y de la comarca) que deben hacer uso de ese transporte público. Pedimos transparencia al Ayuntamiento, solicitamos el proyecto de las dársenas de las que hablaron tras la junta de gobierno del pasado lunes 24, proponemos un período de recogida de propuestas de posibles localizaciones por parte de la ciudadanía, su posterior valoración por los técnicos, trabajadores de las empresas de autobuses y vecinos y exigimos una consulta popular de su futura ubicación basándonos en los derechos recogidos en nuestro Reglamento de Participación Ciudadana (específicamente en el artículo 32).
*Anexos: información remitida por el ayuntamiento, con una imagen sobre plano que no obedece a la situación actual de la parcela a estudio, imagen de los planos del antiguo avance del Plan General de Ordenación Urbana y fotografías del estado del antiguo recinto ferial.

          Welcome to your first day of Classroom        

We launched Google Classroom in 2014 to help teachers save time, organize classes, and improve communication with students. Since then, educators around the globe have helped teach their peers how to use Classroom. There’s been such an outpouring of instructional videos, blogs and resources, we’ve curated some of our favorites into a new collection called #FirstDayofClassroom.

google classroom.png

#FirstDayofClassroom is designed around a simple premise: When teachers need help, they don’t need to look any further than their fellow teachers.

On the hub, you’ll find short tutorials explaining how to get started with Classroom, teacher-created videos on best practices, as well as teacher-tested tips. Want a hard copy? Printable resources, including a Getting Started guide and Group Study guide, are available on the hub for teachers to use right at their desks. It’s like being in your school’s teachers’ lounge or at a collaborative professional development event—except it’s all online.

Teachers have questions. Teachers have answers.

For every teacher ready to use Classroom, there’s a teacher ready to help. Here are just a few examples of the tips from teachers on the resource hub:

  • Lindy Hockenbary, Digital Learning Coach, stays organized by adding class resources to the materials section of the “About” tab.
  • Katie Nieves, Special Education ELA Teacher, personalizes learning by providing different projects and resources when posting an assignment.
  • Jessica Levine, Instructional Technologist, builds relationships between home and school by connecting parents and guardians to their student’s class through guardian email summaries.

We’re also organizing five interactive YouTube live sessions hosted by educators who will help you get started with Classroom. Add a session to your calendar today to join in on the training.

Join the #FirstDayofClassroom community

#FirstDayofClassroom is about expanding the community of teachers dedicated to improving the day-to-day efficiency of teaching. Whether you’re a Classroom pro or have a tried-and-true trick, help your fellow teachers by sharing your favorite tips, resources and tutorials on social media using the hashtag #FirstDayofClassroom. Then, stay tuned on Twitter where we’ll share our favorites throughout the back to school season.

          The value of Google for Education in action: New Impact Portraits from US schools        

Editor’s Note: Earlier this week at ISTE, we announced new tools to support our future explorers and digital citizens, and we released seven new Impact Portraits profiling the impact of Google for Education and Chromebooks in districts across the US. Today we’ll dive deeper into the findings from these schools. For more information from ISTE, follow our updates on Twitter, and if you’re in San Antonio, visit us at booth #1718 to learn more and demo these new tools for yourself.

In 2016, we worked with Evergreen Education Group  answer a big and pressing question: Can we measure the impact of Chromebooks and G Suite for Education in schools? Evergreen’s discussions over 16 months with more than 100 school leaders from 6 countries was captured in a series of Impact Portraits—data-rich case studies with real school results. Their research uncovered four key factors that help schools and students flourish when adopting technology for the classroom: planning, professional learning, patience and support.

Today we take a closer look at the findings in seven new Impact Portraits from school districts across the U.S. These districts range in size and demographics from Florida’s Brevard County,  with a student population of 73,000 and 9,000 educators, to New York State’s Amherst Central, which has 4 K-12 schools, 2,944 students, and 263 educators.

The one thing these schools have in common: They're using Chromebooks and G Suite to drive measurable improvements in everything from reading skills to AP diploma graduation rates. Below are some key results from each school district.

Achieving a one-to-one environment for so many students changed everything. We now live and breathe the new approach every day. Chris Reed Principal at Williams Elementary, FL
  • The Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township, Indiana, deployed Chromebooks and G Suite for Education in fall 2014. Since then, Wayne Township’s scores on IREAD-3, Indiana’s measure of third-grade reading skills, have risen by 10% to 86%. High school graduation rates also rose 21.1%, from 67% to an average of 88.1%.
Wayne_BlogPost_Graphic-01.png

  • After giving every student a Chromebook, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) Middle School of Choice, part of the Burleson Independent School District, Texas, surpassed every middle school in the district on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness and the BrightBytes’ CASE Technology Framework, which measures the impact of technology on learning outcomes. Engagement is high as well: One English teacher reported a 72% decrease in missed homework assignments after Chromebooks were introduced to her classroom.
  • In Brevard County Public Schools, Florida, Quest Elementary added 120 Chromebooks in 2014. Since then, the percentage of students scoring proficient or above in English/Language arts rose from 81% to 85% and students scoring proficient or above in math rose from 86% to 89%. Brevard’s West Shore Senior High School leveraged Chromebooks and G Suite for students seeking the new Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Project diploma in 2016, which requires intensive research and collaboration. The first year the AP Capstone diploma was offered, 60 out of 160 graduating West Shore students received the prestigious diploma.

Brevard_BlogPost_Graphic-01.png

  • In 2013, Hoover City Schools, Alabama, in the Birmingham suburbs, gave students Chromebooks for classroom and home use. Students now have access to Chromebooks and G Suite wherever they go. For absent students, Hoover City created a virtual high school with online video lessons; the schools also introduced an Engaged Learning Facilitators (ELF) program, offering extra technology training to interested teachers who then coach and support other educators in the district.

  • The Oak Hills Local School District, Ohio saved more than  $100,000 a year in software license and server fees by adopting G Suite in 2009. Based on these benefits, the district gave Chromebooks to every student in its three middle schools over the next three years. By the 2016–17 school year, every student in grades 1–12 had their own Chromebook. Chromebooks cost 26% less than similar devices and also help prepare students for Ohio’s state testing, which is conducted online.

OakHills_BlogPost_Graphic-01.png

  • The Amherst Central School District, New York adopted G Suite in 2010, and, after positive reception to Google’s educational technology, in 2012, the district began using Chromebooks. Today, students use Google Slides to create digital portfolios and take virtual field trips with Google Expeditions. Google technology has proved so transformative in the district that the device-to-student ratio in Amherst schools is now approaching 1:1.

  • In 2015, Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, Missouri gave a Chromebook to 17,500 students from grade K-12 through the G Suite Connect2Learn program. Students can use their Chromebooks at school and at home (or wherever a WiFi hotspot is available), increasing their learning opportunities throughout the week. A year later, the district’s BrightBytes CASE scores had risen across all four measures of the test: Classroom (up 3.4%), Access (up 3.2%), Skills (up 1.5%), and Environment (up 1.5%).

          Updates from ISTE: new tools to empower our future explorers and digital citizens        

Editor's note: This week our Google for Education team will be joining thousands of educators at the annual ISTE conference in San Antonio. Follow along here and on Twitter for the latest news and updates.

Technology is transforming how students learn and the skills they need to succeed.


Today at the ISTE (International Society for Technology in Education) conference, we’ll be highlighting new tools and programs built to empower students to explore, build and think critically as active learners. Look out for a deeper dive on each of these announcements on the blog throughout this week.

Students as inventors and explorers

  • Recently we announced a new browser-based version of Google Earth that makes it easier than ever for teachers to bring the world into the classroom using Chromebooks. Today we are excited to introduce 10 new stories in Google Earth Voyager, our new storytelling platform, built specifically for the classroom. We collaborated with National Geographic Society, PBS Education, HHMI Biointeractive and Mission Blue to create beautiful, curated Voyager stories which offer students a new perspective on the world. We’re also unveiling new classroom activities for teachers to get started today. This week, Google Earth will become an additional service for Google for Education users, which can be managed by IT administrators through the Google Admin panel.

Google Earth knowledge card of the Alamo, not far from the ISTE 2017 conference!


  • We’re always looking to highlight great educational content on Chromebooks that can be seamlessly integrated into the classroom, while also fostering skills of the future. Today we’re announcing a collection of STEM tools for Chromebooks -- Dremel 3D40 3D Printer and littleBits Code Kit -- that schools can purchase at a bundle discount from their Chromebook reseller. These tools bring engineering into the classroom and help students become inventors.


  • Coming soon, the Expeditions app for Cardboard and Daydream will offer a self-guided mode so anyone can access more than 600 virtual field trips on their own. Students and teachers will be able to pick an adventure to anywhere—from the Great Barrier Reef to the Great Wall of China—and see details on points of interest highlighted on cards. We hope that this encourages exploration and personal education, making it easy to learn using virtual reality.

Students as critical thinkers and responsible digital citizens

  • In addition to the bundle of STEM tools announced above, we are offering a discounted bundle of media literacy apps on Chromebooks, Scrible and eSpark Frontier. The tools are designed to support students as they research and write using contemporary online information and help students form opinions about the media they consume.

Impact Portraits paint a picture of school success with Chromebooks and G Suite

Today, we’re sharing seven new Impact Portraits from school districts across the U.S. The districts range in size and demographics from Florida’s Brevard County, which covers a diverse coastal area with 73,000 students, to upstate New York’s Amherst Central, with 2,944 students.


One thing these schools have in common: they're using Chromebooks and G Suite to drive measurable improvements in everything from reading skills to AP diploma graduation rates. In the Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township, for example, Indiana’s measure of third grade reading skills has grown by 10% since adopting Chromebooks. Check out g.co/EduImpact to find all of the Impact Portraits, and stay tuned for a closer look at the collection later this week.


The school districts whose Impact Portraits we’re sharing today include:

ROM

Istilah ROM pastinya sering pula Anda dengar dan baca, ROM sendiri merupakan singkatan dari Read Only Memory yang apabila didefinisikan adalah media penyimpanan file sistem di mana jenis data yang terkandung di dalamnya tidak dapat diisi, di-edit atau dibuat melainkan hanya dapat dibaca serta bersifat tidak mudah hilang atau permanen.

Itu perbedaan mendasar antara ROM dan RAM, jika ROM hanya bisa dibaca sebaliknya RAM sangat bisa diisi dengan data sewaktu-waktu. Data dalam ROM dapat dimodifikasi hanya dengan prosedur yang namanya flashing. Prosedur flashing membutuhkan pemahaman yang baik akan sistem operasi, sehingga tidak akan kita bahas secara mendalam di ulasan kali ini.

Custom ROM

Pada dasarnya tidak ada perbedaan definisi antara custom ROM dan ROM, perbedaan keduanya hanya terletak pada proses modifikasi dan hasil akhir yang didapatkan. Di mana custom ROM merupakan hasil dari modifikasi pihak ketiga terhadap sistem file firmware perangkat tertentu dalam hal ini adalah Android atau disebut juga Android mod (Android modification).:

          instructions for magnetic node procedure available        
i finally fucking finished them. there were some ethical doubts but i still believe in freedom of information, as well as bodily sovereignty, and i hope i've written the introduction to it in a way that mitigates those problems. for those new to this: these are step by step instructions that tell you how to install your own magnetic fingertip nodes. they're at this Google Drive link, as a plain text file you can download and read anywhere you want.

link in plaintext: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxZXy_80YNwBZ0d3dy1yd2JkOG8/

just do me a favour and don't start messing with this sort of stuff if you have helicoptering overprotective American parents who are going to look for someone to sue when you have to go to hospital with a septic finger wound. i am taking a bit of a risk by putting these instructions up for anyone to read and while i wouldn't do it if i thought it was that bad, i really don't want anyone who is still the legal responsibility of their parents doing these procedures. please wait until you are 18+ before you try to do anything like this on yourself that risks another person's livelihood if you fail or if your parents decide you deserve compensation for the pain and suffering you experienced while doing it (if you were experimenting de novo you might be alright, but in this case you're following published instructions that have a definite author to point at as the person who gave you the idea / told you to do it / "misled you" / etc.) you can of course decide i'm a patronising arsehole and disregard that entirely, but if you're that young and you want nodes that badly, the best thing is to save up for a bit and then convince your parents that you're going to do it whether they agree or not so their best bet is to agree and take you to a professional piercer to have it done. make it your birthday present or something.

if you are of age, i hope this shit helps. make sure to do your utmost in terms of pre-procedure sterilisation and post-procedure aftercare. i've said this a lot but please keep a close eye on the wounds after you've successfully got the nodes in, and if there's any sign of infection at all - excessive redness, a throbbing feeling, pain that doesn't recede or stop, any sort of clear (early infection) or yellow (pus; more established infection) discharge - please go to a doctor. at the least, go to a pharmacist and get them to tell you whether they think you ought to take it to the doctor.

stay safe, have fun, if anything's not clear in the file or you've got stuff you'd like to add to it like links to good places to buy things that i didn't include, extra information that applies to your country that i didn't know about, any typo corrections, etc - leave a comment below or email me at my trioptimum address (in the sidebar) and i'll update the file to include them. feel free to throw a euro/pound/dollar at me via paypal.me/lepht if you really enjoyed them or they helped you install your nodes. or you can find me IRL and physically throw coins at me. that's good too.

carpe corporem!

          research statement        
gleetings ferrow humans

this is the research statement for Paul's documentary, slightly edited to remove personal information etc. it's on the blog Google Drive so you can freely spread the link around (anyone with the link can view it). a research statement is pretty much an outline document saying what we want to do with the documentary, what's in it, what Paul's intentions for it are, etc. it might be interesting to some of you.

here it is: https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxZXy_80YNwBamVnazNLM0lYNlU

          talk results        
woefully underattended! it was like a paedophile's funeral, as my cameraman said. about six attendees and one of them was the poor guy organising the event in the first place. it took place in the lower floor of a nice little indie-type cafe place, and having tried in vain to recruit the two sweet old ladies who occupied the lower bit and the small collection of Hallowe'en hating hipsters typing on their laptops in the upper half, i ended up giving a talk to the organiser and five or so people who weren't doing anything for Hallowe'en.

not that the organiser didn't try to publicise it, mind; he was pretty apologetic about the crap turnout, and about the (egregious) mistake of having scheduled the talk for the biggest party night of the month thereby almost guaranteeing that nobody would be interested. you live, you learn. he was a really nice guy & a good host, and the group he's set up seems like it's probably going to be a decent little H+ group once it's matured a bit and attracted some more members, so if nothing else i spose this was an OK talk for those five or so people and a pretty good lesson for me (in that i should have realised much earlier that the date was a bad idea and warned the guy so he could change it).

we did film it, both as something to share if people wanted it and as food for the documentary, but owing to the location lighting and the interference of sound from the floor above us, the film's not of very good quality and will apparently need a fair bit of editing to make it watchable. i'll put it up for sharing as soon as it's finished.

as requested, here are the slides to the talk, entitled "Biohacking 101" on Google Drive. they're free to view for anyone, so feel free to spread the link around. i think the talk contains some decent info for beginner biohackers or people just interested. it also has some stuff on ethics, etc that i didn't go into in the 27C3 "Cybernetics for the Masses" talk, although they're similar to each other.

film will follow when i have it. might post the raw unedited stuff if the edited one takes ages, though it will be godawful.

also as a few people suggested: if any group around wants, i'm happy to give similar talks to whoever wants them & can be arsed to arrange them, like university societies, interest groups etc. if you want a specific topic that's fine too. i don't charge money, just a drink and a toke if you're having em.

          171) Don't Forget Backpack Tag        

The return back to our school routine after the winter holidays felt hard this year. After two weeks home, most of which was spent in our pajamas since we all had a bug, getting back to the get up and go was tough. It has been made even tougher by all the wintry weather around here, causing our return to be more stop and go then smooth sailing. I don't know if it is the stop and go or all the added winter gear but there has been a slip back into forgetting stuff at school. So to help I went back and made the Bee another reminder tag for her backpack. I originally made one for her in the Fall when school first started. She was having a hard time getting into the routine of first grade and the reminder tag on her backpack really seemed to help. It was mostly her water cup or her lunch box that would get left behind in her locker, so having the tag on her book bag was sort of like a little checklist of what was supposed to go in before the trip home. Her first book bag bit the dust and I learned my lesson that a good backpack is worth the investment. So now with what is hopefully a better backpack, I made her a new tag in hopes that the reminder will help again.
.

Since I figured this is probably a pretty common problem I thought I would share the tag design for anyone else who wants a copy. All you have to do is follow the link below, either print right from the document or download a copy to print later. Cut out both sides of the tag and glue the tags back to back with a glue stick. With a hole puncher make a hole. Then have your child write their name and class and decorate their tag however they want. If your child is as hard on their backpack as mine is you might want to laminate the tag. I have had great luck with those non-heat laminating pouches but you could also use just clear contact paper. I also printed my tag on a heavy card stock to help it hold up a little longer. If you download and use the tag let me know if it helps at all. I am curious to see if others find the tag to be as helpful.

          L'exèrcit romà durant la República        

Durant l’època republicana (509 aC-27 aC), els conflictes bèl·lics i les guerres a gran escala van esdevenir molt més freqüents i ja no eren simples escaramusses o incursions domèstiques. Les batalles requerien més planificació i estratègia, i alhora l’entrenament dels soldats es tornà més professional i exigent: es realitzava un entrenament físic, incloent marxes, curses d’obstacles i maneig d’armes. Allistar-se a l’exèrcit era una condició gairebé sine qua non per millorar l'estàtus social.

La legió, la unitat emblemàtica militar romana, s’organitzà en una estructura molt més formal i estricta. L’equipament el pagava l'Estat, per la qual cosa les despeses van augmentar considerablement. Podríem dir, per tant, que l'exèrcit es va professionalitzar definitivament i va passar a ser el buc insígnia del poder de Roma i de la romanització de molts altres territoris i cultures d'arreu d'Europa.

La lleialtat a l’exèrcit es reforçava amb el jurament de fidelitat i obediència als superiors. També es jurava no desertar mai durant la batalla i les faltes de disciplina es castigaven d’acord amb la gravetat de la falta, com la suspensió del salari, assots, o fins i tot la mort. El càstig per unitats completes consistia en aplicar la pena de mort a 1 de cada 10 soldats, la famosa decimatio (d'on provenen els termes diezmar o delmar amb el significat de castigar).

La República romana va arribar a tenir XII legions, cadascuna amb un nombre i un nom que les distingia, a banda de la creació de guàrdies de les ciutats (legiones urbanae). A més a més, cada cònsol tenia dues legions sota el seu comandament.

Les legions, amb un gruix aproximat de 5.000 efectius depenent de l'època, es composaven de les següents unitats:

CAVALLERIA (equites): Unitat més prestigiosa. L’equipament necessari el pagava el propi soldat. Es dividia en cavalleria lleugera i pesada, i ambdós les comandava un decurió. Eren 300 genets dividits en 10 unitats de 30 soldats.

INFANTERIA LLEUGERA (velites): Llançadors de javelina i fustigadors (molestar l’enemic amb atacs puntuals).

INFANTERIA PESANT: Unitat principal. Usaven casc, escut, armadura, llança curta i espasa curta (gladius). Estava dividida en 3 línies.

HASTATS (hastati): Línia davantera composada pels més joves. Usaven dues llances i el gladius. Avançaven cap a l’enemic fins estar a uns 60 metres, on feien un trot ràpid, llançaven les javelines i desenfundaven les espases.

PRÍNCEPS (principes): Segona línia de formació composada per homes d’uns 30 anys. Usaven el mateix equipament que els primers, però tenien una major protecció.

TRIARIS (triarii): Tercera línia composada pels més veterans. Només entraven al combat en situacions extremes. Formaven una sòlida falange de llançes.

ARTILLERIA:Heretada dels grecs, la perfeccionaren. Alguns exemples són la ballesta, l’onagre o catapulta i l’escorpí o disparador de sagetes, màquines usades per assaltar ciutats o eliminar tropes massives d’enemics.

Aquestes unitats responien a la següent organització de referència d'una legió romana, reformada al llarg del temps i distribuïda d'una manera més o menys definitiva pel cònsol i general Gai Mari a finals del segle II aC:

. 10 cohorts formades per uns 480 homes
. cada cohort es dividia en 3 maniples d'hastats, prínceps i triaris
. cada maniple estava format per 2 centúries de 80 homes (unitat mínima d'atac)
. cada centúria estava formada per 10 contubernis (grups de 8 homes que compartien una tenda de campanya)
. finalment, la cavalleria

Acabo aquesta entrada proposant-vos un interessantíssim vídeo sobre les legions romanes i amb un muntatge que he fet a partir d'un vídeojoc sobre una de les màquines de guerra més temibles de la història. Valete omnes!

          Comment on real.c Rounding Is Perfect (GCC Now Converts Correctly) by albert chan        
On my strtod-gmp.c, I did it from the binary side: 54 bit halfway -> scaled by 2^bexp into gmp integer (if bexp<0, scaled by 5^-bexp) -> gmp_get_str -> halfway digits (base 10) Compare against str digits, we know which way to round correctly. str and halfway are very close. The first digits should be the same, or off by 1 (say 1999... vs 2000...) If they differed more (say 999... vs 1000...), the 9's have an implied 0. Thus 999... should compared LESS than 1000... https://drive.google.com/folderview?id=0B2lbo0M-9zVXdFAtVDVCeHpOU1E&usp=sharing
          Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout        
Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout
Jarang update, ungkapan yang cocok untuk menggambarkan kondisi gubuk Ambae.exe. Dengan berbagai kesibukan di dunia nyata, tentunya menjadi kendala utama. Kali ini, Ambae.exe hadir mengurai tahap demi tahap sebuah langkah penting bagi seorang Googler untuk mengamankan datanya. Tutorial ini, sebelumnya telah lama nongol di Google oleh para Master Blogger berpengalaman. Namun, tiada salahnya kalau Ambae.exe ikut berpartisipasi mengulasnya, dengan harapan dapat mengingatkan kembali dan senantiasa berjaga-jaga atas keprihatinan kita terhadap keamanan dunia maya. Tutorial ini muncul pula atas permintaan sebagian sobat Ambae.exe yang menetap di belahan dunia maya lainnya, yakni negara Facebook.


Pengamanan data tidak boleh diremehkan. Google Taekout menawarkan jasa pengamanan data atas berbagai layanan milik mbah Google. Tentunya, mengacu pada jasa layanan yang digunakan oleh Googler itu sendiri. Sebut saja Anda bergabung dengan Gmail, YouTube, Google+, Google Drive dan sebagainya. Maka Google Takeout menyediakan backup data untuk layanan tersebut, agar Anda dapat mengunduhnya ke dalam komputer. File backup dimaksud dapat digunakan dikemudian hari bilamana terjadi hal-hal yang tidak diinginkan terkait dengan bobolnya Akun Google milik Anda.

Dengan uraian singkat di atas, semoga Googler dapat memahami fungsi dan cara kerja Google Takeout dengan mengikuti tahapan demi tahapan berikut ini.

Steps 1
Kunjungi Google Takeout pada browser Anda, lalu Login dengan Akun Google yang ada.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-1
Steps 2
Halaman utama Google Takeout menampilkan keseluruhan layanan Google yang diikuti oleh Googler. Untuk mengunduh data pada keseluruhan layanan Google, pilih menu All of your data. Kemudian klik tombol Create Archive pada sudut kiri bawah.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-2a
Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-2b
Steps 3
Googler dapat menyeleksi data yang akan diunduh dengan memilih layanan Google yang akan diarsipkan. Pilihan ini berlaku bilamana data yang dimiliki terhitung besar kapasitasnya. Layanan yang menyimpan data besar antara lain YouTube karena memuat sejumlah video. Namun, layanan lainnya pun dapat pula memuat data yang besar karena selama penggunaannya, Googler telah meng-upload data yang besar pula. Untuk itu pilihlah menu Choose Services. Lalu pilih satu atau lebih layanan yang ada dan pada sudut kiri bawah temukan tombol Create Archive. Klik tombol tersebut untuk memulai proses pengumpulan data.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-3
Steps 4
Proses pengumpulan data/pengarsipan dapat berlangsung cepat, dapat pula berlangsung lama dengan durasi waktu yang membosankan. Tentunya proses ini mengacu pada kapasitas data yang tertanam pada layanan yang ada. Selama menunggu proses itu berlangsung, nikmatilah secangkir kopi pahit dan kunjungilah Ambae.exe di Facebook.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-4
Steps 5
Mengingat prosesnya memakan waktu yang lama. Tinggalkan saja komputernya dan biarkan prosesnya berjalan. Centang pilihan Email me when ready agar Google mengirimkan pesan konfirmasi melalui Gmail. Untuk membatalkan proses tersebut, klik tombol Cancel pada sudut kanan bawah.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-5
Steps 6
Kunjungi Gmail dan buka pesan yang masuk untuk mengonfirmasi pengarsipan. Perlu diingat bahwa konfirmasi dilakukan sampai batas waktu yang telah ditentukan yakni selama kurun waktu 7x24 jam. Klik link bertuliskan Ready pada pesan tersebut, maka Googler pun akan di-redirect menuju halaman Download pada Google Takeout. Biarkan prosesnya berjalan secara otomatis sampai proses download selesai. Bilamana melewati batas waktu konfirmasi, maka prosesnya harus diulangi kembali dari Steps 1 sampai Steps 5.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-6
Steps 7
Perhatikan Steps 5, bisa saja Googler tidak mencentang pilihan Email me when ready. Dengan asumsi bahwa data yang dikumpulkan cukup kecil kapasitasnya. Sehingga proses pengarsipan berlangsung cepat. Setelah pengarsipan selesai, klik tombol Download di sudut kanan bawah untuk memulai proses Download.

Jangan Remehkan Google Takeout-7
Sobat Googler yang baik hati, kiranya Tutorial di atas memberi manfaat. Komentar dan masukannya akan sangat berarti demi pengembangan Ambae.exe. Selamat mengarsip dan salam Blogger.

          Stuff The Internet Says On Scalability For July 28th, 2017s        

Hey, it's HighScalability time:

 

Jackson Pollock painting? Cortical column? Nope, it's a 2 trillion particle cosmological simulation using 4000+ GPUs. (paper, Joachim Stadel, UZH)

If you like this sort of Stuff then please support me on Patreon.

 

  • 1.8x: faster code on iPad MacBook Pro; 1 billion: WhatsApp daily active users; 100 milliamps: heart stopping current; $25m: surprisingly low take from ransomware; 2,700x: improvement in throughput with TCP BBR; 620: Uber locations; $35.5 billion: Facebook's cash hoard; 2 billion: Facebook monthly active users; #1: Apple is the world's most profitable [legal] company; 500,000x: return on destroying an arms depot with a drone; 

  • Quotable Quotes:
    • Alasdair Allan: Jeff Bezos’ statement that “there’s not that much interesting about CubeSats” may well turn out to be the twenty first century’s “nobody needs more than 640kb.”
    • @hardmaru: Decoding the Enigma with RNNs. They trained a LSTM with 3000 hidden units to decode ciphertext with 96%+ accuracy. 
    • @tj_waldorf: Morningstar achieved 97% cost reduction by moving to AWS. #AWSSummit Chicago
    • Ed Sperling: Moore’s Law is alive and well, but it is no longer the only approach. And depending on the market or slice of a market, it may no longer be the best approach.
    • @asymco: With the end of Shuffle and Nano iPods Apple now sells only Unix-enabled products. Amazing how far that Bell Labs invention has come.
    • @peteskomoroch: 2017: RAM is the new Hadoop
    • Carlo Pescio: What if focusing on the problem domain, while still understanding the machine that will execute your code, could improve maintainability and collaterally speed up execution by a factor of over 100x compared to popular hipster code?
    • @stevesi: Something ppl forget: moving products to cloud, margins go down due to costs to operate scale services—costs move from Customer to vendor.
    • @brianalvey: The most popular software for writing fiction isn't Word. It's Excel.
    • @pczarkowski: How to make a monolithic app cloud native: 1) run it in a docker 2) change the url from .com to .io
    • @tj_waldorf: Morningstar achieved 97% cost reduction by moving to AWS. #AWSSummit Chicago
    • drinkzima: There is a huge general misunderstanding in the profitability of directing hotel bookings vs flight bookings or other types of travel consumables. Rate parity and high commission rates mean that directing hotel rooms is hugely profitable and Expedia (hotels.com, trivago, expedia) and Priceline (booking.com) operate as a duopoly in most markets. They are both marketing machines that turn brand + paid traffic into highly profitable room nights.
    • Animats: This is a classic problem with AI researchers. Somebody gets a good result, and then they start thinking strong human-level AI is right around the corner. AI went through this with search, planning, the General Problem Solver, perceptrons, the first generation of neural networks, and expert systems. Then came the "AI winter", late 1980s to early 2000s, when almost all the AI startups went bust. We're seeing some of it again in the machine learning / deep neural net era.
    • Charity Majors: So no, ops isn't going anywhere. It just doesn't look like it used to. Soon it might even look like a software engineer.
    • @mthenw: As long as I need to pay for idle it’s not “serverless”. Pricing is different because in Lambda you pay for invocation not for the runtime.
    • Kelly Shortridge: The goal is to make the attacker uncertain of your defensive environment and profile. So you really want to mess with their ability to profile where their target is
    • @CompSciFact: 'About 1,000 instructions is a reasonable upper limit for the complexity of problems now envisioned.' -- John von Neumann, 1946
    • hn_throwaway_99: Few barriers to entry, really?? Sorry, but this sounds a bit like an inexperienced developer saying "Hey, I could build most of Facebook's functionality in 2 weeks." Booking.com is THE largest spender of advertising on Google. They have giant teams that A/B test the living shite out of every pixel on their screens, and huge teams of data scientists squeezing out every last bit of optimization on their site. It's a huge barrier to entry. 
    • callahad: It's real [performance improvements]. We've [Firefox] landed enormous performance improvements this year, including migrating most Firefox users to a full multi-process architecture, as well as integrating parts of the Servo parallel browser engine project into Firefox. There are still many improvements yet-to-land, but in most cases we're on track for Firefox 57 in November.
    • Samer Buna: One important threat that GraphQL makes easier is resource exhaustion attacks (AKA Denial of Service attacks). A GraphQL server can be attacked with overly complex queries that will consume all the resources of the server.
    • wheaties: This is stupid. Really. Here we are in a world where the companies that own the assets (you know, the things that cost a lot of money) are worth less than the things that don't own anything. This doesn't seem "right" or "fair" in the sense that Priceline should be a middleman, unable to exercise any or all pricing power because it does not control the assets producing the revenue. I wonder how long this can last?
    • platz: Apparently deep-learning and algae are the same thing.
    • @CompSciFact: "If you don't run experiments before you start designing a new system, your entire system will be an experiment." -- Mike Williams
    • Scott Aaronson: our laws of physics are structured in such a way that even pure information often has “nowhere to hide”: if the bits are there at all in the abstract machinery of the world, then they’re forced to pipe up and have a measurable effect. 
    • The Internet said many more interesting things this week. To read them all please click through to the full article.

  • Cool interview with Margaret Hamilton--NASA's First Software Engineer--on Makers. Programmers, you'll love this. One of the stories she tells is how her daughter was playing around and selected the prelaunch program during flight. That crashed the simulator. So like a good programmer she wanted to prevent this from happening. She tried to get a protection put in because an astronaut could actually do this during flight. Management would certainly allow this, right? She was denied. They said astronauts are trained never to make a mistake so it could never happen. Eventually she won the argument and was able to add code to protect against human error. So little has changed :-)

Don't miss all that the Internet has to say on Scalability, click below and become eventually consistent with all scalability knowledge (which means this post has many more items to read so please keep on reading)...

          Pax Stellarum 2.0 - Released        
I've finally finished the revision of Pax Stellarum version 2.0. This has been a major endeavor, which took me the best part of 2016 to complete, but I'm definitely satisfied with this version of the rules.

For those of you readers of this blog that don't know of, Pax Stellarum is my own homebrew set of rules to play spaceship wargames. 

Starships are one of my greatest passions in this hobby, but I've never found a set of rules I was completely happy with. Every ruleset out there had some elements I liked, but lacked others. Additionally, none of them felt universal enough to allow me to play on several different scifi settings (Star Trek, Babylon 5, Star Wars, Battlestar Gallactica, Stargate, etc.), and having to learn a number of different rulesets in order to play each universe with a different one was out of question for me.

Because of that, I started working on my own rules a few years ago, came up with a first version of the system, which felt good enough, and since then I've been taking notes of things I could improve, which culminates with this thoroughly revised version we have here.

You can find a link to the Pax Stellarum GoogleDrive files on the left column of this blog, half way down.




From the start, the guiding directives behind Pax Stellarum were clearly set in my head: 

 - To confortly accomodate about a dozen or more ships per side
 - Fast gameplay
 - No book-keeping required (few things to keep track of, and even this could be done with tokens on the table)
 - Universal rules to play any scifi setting, including a broad range of weapon and special abilities options
 - Design Rules with a point system, so that I could create stats for all ships I'd like to play with
 - Options of actions in play (beyond just move ahead and shoot)

These objectives have always guided my efforts and tweaking of the rules. Still, what I usually lack is the time to playtest all the inovations I had in mind to better address those topics. This has been duly dealt with this last december, though. I had several weeks of vacation and used most of my time to test over and over again the rules I'd like to add/change, and see what worked and what didn't.

This version of the rules presents the result of this recent playtesting. For those already acquainted with the previous version of the rules, here are the fundamental changes you'll find in this edition:

- New Shields mechanics
- New Fighter and torpedo mechanics
- Detailed Rules for several different types of terrain
- Additional weapon and ship traits, allowing further customization


A brief introduction to PAX STELLARUM

A fundamental aspect of the game is Technology. Players must select a Tech level for their ships (usually the same for their entire fleet). This will determine what systems are available for it in the design spreadsheet.




As you can see, a number of examples are provided for each Tech level, to help players better categorize their own chosen faction in order to design their ships. These examples are obviously suggestions, and players are free to choose the tech level they feel better represents their race of choice. 
Tech determines everything on a spaceship. How much it can purchase on Engines Rating, how powerful their weapons are, what traits those weapons may have, what special systems the ship may install, how powerful are its Shields, Sensors, etc.

Everything is costed in points (including Tech!), and a .xls spreadsheet has been develop to do all the math automatically. You just need to select what options you'd like to add, and the spreadsheet will calculate cost/mass requisite and tell you if any of your selections violate a design rule (usually related to tech requisites).

The design spreadsheet also has a number of ready-to-use ship stat displays, from Star Trek, Star Wars and Babylon 5, so players willing to give the game a try may do so without needing to first go through the design rules. Over the months, I'll be adding more and more ship designs of my own, and will be uploading the new ones here on the blog as I go.




In terms of gameplay, players can expect to find in Pax a ruleset aimed at larger engagements, as I mentioned, but that still does well on small skirmishing actions. The game turn is divided in a number of phases, with both players acting on each of them, in alternated activations:

- Initiative Phase
- Movement Phase
- Shooting Phase
- Ordnance Phase
- End Phase

Initiative determines who gets to choose which player acts first on each phase. Usually, players will prefer to let the opponent start activating on the movement phase, and start themselves activating on the shooting phase. The number and level of Command ships on each fleet has a major impact on the rolls to determine initiave each turn.

Movement is based on a ship's chosen level of thrust (adrift, low or High), and this can only be changed at the end of a ship's activating, which means it'll only impact next turn's movement. Thus, players are required to plan in advance how they intend to move on the following turn.
During a ship's activation on this Phase, it also has the opportunity of trying to take on a special order. There are 11 Special Orders available, and they involve pushing your engines harder to move farther, diverting power to shields, improving you accuracy by locking weapons on a target, etc.

Shooting involves the use of D10, and the concept of Quality. This is a ship stat that determines not only how well a ship shoots, but also how likely it is to pass a command check to take on a special order, among other things. 

The ordnance phase is where fighters and torpedoes move and attack, and this has been one of the areas where I've implemented the greatest number of changes, aiming at simpliying and speeding up game play.

On the end phase, players get the chance to repair critical damage, as well as restore their Shields Rating a bit. Additionally, at this stage, a fleet that has already lost half their total of hull points need to take a Morale Check to remain in battle.

Failing a fleet morale check is the standard condition of ending a game. That means that the fleet will leave the battlefield, with the opposite fleet claiming the victory. However, rules for calculating victory points are also provided, so that players may use them in their own scenarios, if they so will.

The rulebook is divided in two main chapters: Basic and Advanced Rules. I encourage any of you readers that enjoy a good ol' space battle to take a read at the basic rules, have a game or two with the ship designs provided in the design spreadsheet and see if this is a ruleset for you.

Pax Stellarum is and will always be a ruleset free-of-charge, it has been developed to suit my own taste for space wargames, but I'm glad to share it with any fellow gamer, as I know that, like myself, there are a lot of other ruleset-enthusiasts out there.

As always, feedback is deeply appreciated, since this is a system at constant evolution, and we could say that the release of version 2.0 coincides with the beginning of the work on version 3.0 (!)

У нас при подготовке к Стимпанку были всякие разрозненные доки, про то, что и как надо делать, этой осенью/зимой я попытался собрать их вместе и дописать. Задача вообще написать «полнообъемлющее руководство мастера» по всем вопросам, но пока есть скажем 30% этой блестящей цели. Вот, решил показать, с целью собрать полезный фидбек. Вопросы творчества, и вообще вопросы субъективные (стоит ли проектировать игру так или так) там затронуты минимально. Вопросы организации работы затронуты субъективно в пользу больших МГ (т.е. маленькой МГ не совсем удобно будет так работать). Также этот док не образует обязательств перед игроками, и вообще является внутримастерским по смыслу (где мы даем сроки ответа на письмо игрока, например, не стоит на них ориентироваться игрокам и чего-то ожидать).

          Pregnant Limited-English Chinese Woman with Two Small Children given $500 meat fine - No Translator Offered - Zero Leeway        

This page and my blog at https://cbpabuse.blogspot.com documents abuses by the United States Customs and Border Protection Service (CBP) against my wife and family, and to make note of & link to abuses received by others.

My wife speaks limited English. She's pregnant. She's prone to morning AKA all-day sickness related to her pregnancy. We have two young children, aged one and three.

She was the one fined $500.

She is the one threatened with expulsion from the Global Entry program, a program we signed up for specifically because we have young children and were hoping to spend less time in line when returning from China.

But, if you sign up for Global Entry, the CBP is much more interested in the contents of your bags - and any little specks of meat which may be inside.

Even if you declare that you do have meat at the Global Entry kiosks, and even if you do declare that you do have meat on the paper customs form, that's not enough for the angry, abusive, and anxious to pounce CBP officers. After 15+ hours of travel you must be required to verbally state every small instance of "meat" you may have, within 5 seconds of being asked. Otherwise it's a $500 fine for you, and a probable boot from Global Entry.

And if you're a limited English person who really should have a translator fully explaining what exactly is meant by the term "meat," doesn't matter! Still a $500 fine and a probable boot from Global Entry.

Fruit sniffing dogs.

Angry conniving & thuggish officers who are ready to pounce at the slightest misstep.

The CBP treats everyone like a criminal and everyone like a terrorist.

The face presented by the USA to visitors and returning citizens & residents is actively hostile.

Included below are quotes from letters we've shared with the White House, and with one of our senators. We've asked them for help, but we're not hopeful.

We suspect that the wheels of the CBP grind very finely. The CBP appears to be a de facto raquet and scam. A scam to get money & frankly to terrorize regular citizens & residents & visitors. Treating all people with the same blunt tool:
You will be treated with the same concise & exacting anger as one might expect for a drug dealer, prisoner, criminal, or a terrorist - if you have the smallest speck of prohibited food in your bags - and even if you select "yes" to the relevant questions on the customs forms and at the Global Entry kiosks as your "official" declaration as to what's inside your bags - and which does knowing route to you to mandatory all-bag inspection.

You try to be honest? After 15+ hours of travel you forget one speck of stuff? And even though you've selected "yes" as your official declaration which you know mandatorily routes you to full bag inspection? That's not enough for the thugs at CBP.
Thug is a strong word. But when it comes to brutalizing pregnancy tired sick women who speak limited English, and who try and "come home" to America with their two young children in tow - the term is fully accurate.

More details can be found in the quoted letters below sent to our elected representatives. We shall continue to document what happens with us in this blog.

Key items for your further review of this matter:

Items 1 & 2: Our letter to President Obama; our letter to one of our senators.

President Obama
The White House
1600 Pennsylvania Avenue NW
Washington, District of Columbia 20500

Dear President Obama,

As per your website’s invitation for feedback, and the general principles of freedom of speech & petitioning our government for a redress of grievances, I am writing to you today.

My wife is an immigrant from China and she speaks limited English. Recently she and our family were the recipients of abuse at the hands of the U.S. Customs & Border Protection Service (CBP) at the San Francisco Airport.

My wife packed our bags. We did select “yes” in answer to the meat & vegetables questions at the Global Entry kiosks and on the paper customs form. My wife is pregnant and is highly prone to morning sickness (AKA all-day sickness). We have two young children. We had just traveled for 15+ hours and were very tired. Our children were tired and were complaining. We were first greeted at the San Francisco Airport by an angry, yelling, and unhinged CBP officer who was yelling at a Chinese tour group in a large hallway to move on more quickly – while a tour guide was explaining how to fill out the paper customs form to this group. All these factors wore us down and resulted in this:

A failure on the part of my wife to verbally state, within 5 seconds or less to a CBP officer, that there was a very small amount of meat in our luggage. My wife didn’t fully understand exactly what was meant by “meat.” A large piece of meat? Meat in a loose bag & not in a sealed package? And she was neverprovided a translator. My wife reported that the words of the officer involved sounded muddled to her and were hard for her to understand. And my wife’s condition & ability to accurately & quickly respond was degraded due to tiredness & pregnancy & having to deal with and help our two young children.

But, she was the one fined $500. And she is now the one being threatened with expulsion from the Global Entry program. An expulsion of her from Global Entry would be a de facto expulsion of my whole family. My wife is the mother of our children, and we shall not travel separately nor stand in separate lines.

Enclosed is a petition I am sending to one of my senators, regarding help with the CBP. Inside my petition you shall find further reference to exactly what happened to us. Also included is relevant commentary regarding how others are generally treated by the CBP – how the initial “face of America” as presented to all visitors is a hostile one.

I know that Senator Hatch shall be forwarding my concerns to the agency involved for a response. If in your capacity as President you are able to provide some positive assistance that would be welcomed also.
Sincerely,

Jonathan XXXXX with Yanning XXXXX, & XXXXX & XXXXX

Senator Orrin Hatch
c/o Help with Federal Agencies, with additional relevance to the Senate Committee on Finance & other committees
104 Hart Office Building
Washington, District of Columbia 20510

Greetings Senator Hatch,

Regarding the First Amendment, Right to Petition.

We are writing to request your help with the following federal agency: U.S. Customs & Border Protection Service (CBP).

Our petition for your office & the CBP begins.

The nature of our complaint has main three elements:

Issue 1: Demeanor of CBP officers at the San Francisco Airport port of entry.

Issue 2: Appeal regarding property seizure and of a fine.

Issue 3: Appeal regarding threats made to our Global Entry membership status, threats made during our visit to the San Francisco airport (SFO) on March 27, 2016.

My wife and I were legally married in the State of Utah. My wife currently has a Green Card and hopes to become a U.S. citizen.

We have two young children, age one (a girl) and three (a boy), and my wife is pregnant with our third child (a girl).

We obtained Global Entry memberships to help us be able to more easily return from China, and more recently & particularly because my wife is currently pregnant. We usually visit China once per year so that my wife can see her family, and so that our children can see their grandparents and uncles.

Regarding issue 1, the demeanor of officers at the San Francisco Airport port of entry.

Upon arrival at the San Francisco airport immediately after exiting the relevant airplane we were on, we noticed a Chinese tour group leader telling a group of travelers information about how to fill out a customs form. This was all happening in a secure large international passenger hallway & plane exit gate area, right next to a large sculpted artwork present in the large hallway.

An apparent tour leader was instructing his group regarding how to fill out the form, a CBP officer started yelling loudly from down the hall and barking orders for the group to move more quickly. The CBP officer was very angry and upset. The tour guide responded “ok ok,” whereupon the CBP officer said “NO IT’S NOT OK!!! MOVE IT! COME ON! MOVE IT!”

This was these peoples’ first introduction to America: An angry and unhinged CBP officer barking orders at them, all while their Chinese tour guide was trying to explain how to fill out a relevant CBP form in the large hallway outside of the relevant airline gate we all were at.

Regarding issue 2, an appeal regarding property seizure and of a fine:

Our family proceeded through the Global Entry kiosks ok. We believed we had filled out the relevant customs form for our family sufficiently. At the Global Entry kiosks we did select “yes” to the question regarding whether we had brought in any food, vegetables, or meat. And on the paper form a “yes” was selected.

Primarily & probably solely because of our “yes” selections as noted above, our baggage was then X-rayed and opened up by CBP officers.

Inside of our bags the officers found items which matched up with the Global Entry kiosk selections of (meat & veg) “yes,” and with the front-of-the-form selections of yes for meat & vegetables.

Specifically one piece of bread with very small pieces of cooked pork on the outside of the bread was found.

Also one small sealed package of sausage purchased as a gift for us from Walmart in Nanning, China (yes they have a Walmart there) was found.

Also one package of noodles with “chicken extract” inside was found.

My wife speaks limited English and she has a more limited understanding regarding CBP regulations. On the back of the customs form we did indicate the phrase “packaged bread.” And on the front of the form we did indicate a “yes” to the question regarding whether we had brought in meat. We also stated the word “etc” after a phrase similar to or exactly matching “packaged snacks.”

The process of being grilled and interrogated by a CBP officer can be befuddling. After 15+ hours of travel my wife & I were very tired. Our two very young children were tired & upset. And after our encounter with the CBP officer barking & yelling orders, we were further worn down.

We made our “best faith effort” in filling out the relevant customs form. We also made our best & good faith responses at the Global Entry kiosk when we said “yes” to the meat & vegetables question.

The small package of sausage purchased from Walmart in Nanning came as a gift and was mixed in with bag of other non-meat gifts. And again we did answer “yes” to whether we had meat both at the Global Entry kiosk and on the front of the paper form – the most relevant part of that form.

The piece of bread found came from a bakery. The word “bread” was mentioned in our declarations.

We gave the CBP full opportunity to check our bags.

When people answer “No” to the question regarding meat & vegetables, they are usually just waived on & not fully checked. We saw this first hand. Thus the CBP appears to have a gotcha-type system & scheme where common citizens & lawful U.S. residents are easily trapped & penalized – directly & severely penalized for attempting to be honest.

There should & must be a difference between treatment & handling of people who answer “no” & are found to have prohibited items, and people who answer “yes” to the related question. YES was our official deceleration, at the Global Entry kiosk, and on the front of the paper form, regarding whether we had meat & vegetables present.

According to the USDA website at

meat is allowed:

Products for Personal Consumption

Federal inspection regulations permit the entry of small amounts of meat, poultry or egg products for personal consumption 9 CFR, Part 327.16, 381.207, and 590.960. The amount of a personal consumption shipment cannot exceed 50 pounds for meat, poultry, or dried egg products and 30 pounds for liquid or frozen egg products. The products must be for personal use only and cannot be sold or distributed in U.S. commerce.

Such products are exempt from FSIS import regulation, but they are subject to Animal and Plant Health Inspection Service (APHIS) animal health requirements. These requirements change frequently, and travelers should contact APHIS for up-to-date information by visiting the website or calling (301) 851-3300.

All travelers entering the United States are required to declare any products of animal origin (including soup or soup products) they may be carrying. The declaration must cover all items carried in checked baggage, carry-on luggage, or in a vehicle. U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) agriculture specialists at the ports of entry will examine the items and determine if they meet the entry requirements of the United States. Additional information on bringing agricultural products into the United States is available from CBP.


Long traveling families, with children age one and three, and a wife still prone to morning sickness AKA all-day sickness, and families where a key family member who packed our bags speaks limited English should be given some leeway. And even more leeway should be given when in the first instance we a.) tried to be honest, and b.) we set ourselves up for mandatory inspection as per our YES answer to the meat & veg question at the Global Entry kiosk.

From our perspective, our answering of “yes” to the meat & vegetable questions at the Global Entry kiosks, and “yes” on the front of the paper form, should have covered what was found.

Long traveling tired families like us are not well prepared to respond to being verbally grilled, and to verbally remember every little thing within 5 seconds of being asked. But, we did remember to select “yes” in answer to the meat & vegetable questions at the Global Entry kiosks. And we did remember to select “yes” in answer to a similar question on the front of the customs form.

And again a YES answer at the Global Entry kiosks routes one, knowingly, to mandatory inspection. Had we answered NO at the kiosk and on the paper form, we most likely would have been waved on after a quick verbal question regarding whether we had any fresh fruits or meats.

We COULD have lied & then been waved on. But we did not. We sought to be truthful, and we set ourselves up for mandatory inspection. Plus we answered YES during BOTH opportunities to declare meat & vegetables, at the Global Entry kiosk, and on the front of the relevant paper form.

The CBP officer who dealt with us was not helpful. He acted rather like an exacting judge in a court room. One wrong word. One wrong comment. A lack of a proper response within 5 seconds. One temporarily forgotten piece of bread or packaged sausage (not recollected verbally within 5 seconds) after traveling for 16+ hours including connections & layovers, and with a wife who is still prone to all-day sickness related to her pregnancy, and with two very young upset & tired children – one very small misstep with this abusive CBP officer resulted in the following:

                A $500 fine.

                A threat to my wife’s current & future Global Entry membership (issue 3).

We maintain & claim that our representations at the Global Entry kiosks and on the paper forms weresufficient declarations to cover the very few things found as noted. Fully sufficient.

In our tired & degraded state after our long journey, we provided the best quick answers we could.

We gave the CBP full opportunity to check our bags, via our “yes” answers as previously noted. When one answers “yes” to the meat & veg question at the Global Entry kiosks, that automatically & mandatorily & knowinglyroutes such travelers to the more intensive baggage inspection.

We basically allowed the CBP officer involved to abusively pounce while he searched for the smallest tiny mistake with our verbal responses. But we, my wife & I, set the wheels in motion for this trap via answering “yes” at the Global Entry kiosks to the meat & veg question. But, we answered “yes” in good faith. We were trying to be honest & to do the best we could under the circumstances.
A pregnant woman with two very young children who speaks limited English, was the one fined.

As the inspecting & fining CBP officer involved was asking us initial very quick spoken & cutting verbal questions, my wife would not have had time to process his questions & answer them appropriately.

We were never offered an interpreter.

My wife never was asked one question, directly, and with an interpreter asking the questions – particularly during the whether-to-fine-or-not-fine decision-making part of the conversation with the relevant fining CBP officer.

And overall we received zero consideration for the fact that we were a family traveling with two very young & upset & tired children. No leeway. Nothing other than a very quick verbal game which one can either pass or very easily fail. My wife should not have been expected to pass such a game in her state & after such long travel & after being very tired & sick as a result. Yet, she was the one fined.

A lack of equal treatment under the law:

The CBP officer we dealt with regarding the inspection & fine stated that Global Entry members are investigated more closely. However a general principle of the rule of law is that people be treated equally before the law. Thus the more intense fruit & veg scrutiny to Global Entry members given by CBP officers violates a principles of equal treatment.

People who answer “no” to the meat & veg question are checked much less often than people who say “yes.”

People who aren’t Global Entry members are checked less than people who are.

This is all unequal treatment.

The CBP penalizes people who try to be honest.

We did not set out to “sneak” anything in.

We gave our good faith best-effort answers at the Global Entry kiosks, and on the relevant paper form – regarding having meat & vegetables inside our bags. We answered and declared YES.

Traveling with two young children, and having a wife who’s highly prone to all-day pregnancy related sickness, and 15+ hours of continuous travel, resulted in our being able to be easily befuddled and tripped up by a ready-to-pounce CBP officer. But as noted we opened the door to their being able to find the items they were then concerned about. And we did say “yes” to whether we had meat & vegetables – because we were trying to be honest in the first instance. This was our declaration first & foremost: an answer of Yes at the Global Entry kiosks and on the relevant paper form, to the meat & vegetables question.

Why did we choose to pay the spot fine instead of going to court? Because we live in Utah. We cannot reasonably be expected to travel from Utah to a court in San Francisco to fight this matter. And so we paid the $500 fine quickly so that we could be on our way with our two young kids, and so that we could get a bit of rest in San Francisco before continuing on to Utah.

However the CBP officer involved never mentioned, during the whether-to-pay-quickly-or-not-or-go-to-court part of the conversation, how my wife’s Global Entry membership would be threatened via our decision not to fight in court. He only mentioned this way after the fact – and after we paid the $500 spot fine. Thus the officer did not provide full information during our decision making process regarding which route to proceed with initially.

Plus again, the CBP provided no Chinese-speaking translator during the entire verbal interaction process with the CBP. Thus the CBP officer’s questions verbally expressed to us would not have been fully understood by my wife. This is a very important point.

During the fine issuing process, my wife was never consulted, directly, regarding whether she would have preferred to pay the fine up front, or via check, or whether to go to court – and certainly never with an interpreter speaking with her directly.

Regarding issue 3: Appeal regarding threats made to our Global Entry membership status, threats made during our visit to the San Francisco airport on March 27.

My wife’s Global Entry membership could now be revoked, and her future Global Entry application attempts rejected.

The CBP officer who verbally dealt with us stated that my wife’s Global Entry membership would most likely be revoked, and that our future attempts to have her be a Global Entry member would most likely be denied.

A termination of my wife’s Global Entry membership would mean a termination of all of our memberships. We do not travel separately to China nor to other international destinations. If she cannot use the program then none of us can.

Tired families with small children, who exit their airplane and first encounter a yelling order-barking CBP officer (issue 1) can then be easily befuddled by an exacting and similarly angry CBP officer when it comes time for the meat & veg inspection & for the related exacting interrogation.
We made our best faith efforts to comply with the regulations. But we don’t believe the CBP makes good faith efforts to accommodate families with young upset small & tired children, and a pregnant wife with pregnancy nausea & sickness, with their exacting demanding questions & grilling, and with wives who’re threatened with fines & expulsion from Global Entry who speak limited English - families where one key member doesn’t understand their questions as they are being asked.

The CBP apparently takes every opportunity to trip people up, and to then ruthlessly penalize people.

Regular people. Regular citizens who’re just trying to come home after a long journey.

Further notes regarding issues 1 and 2:

Even taking into account the strict letter of the law, the USDA states that small amounts of meat are allowed to be brought in. And we tried to be honest via our responses of YES to the meat & veg questions at the Global Entry kiosk and on the paper form, which we KNEW would route us to mandatory inspection.

1. One piece of bread with little flakes of cooked pork on the outside.

2. One vacuum sealed package of sausage purchased from a Walmart in Nanning & received as a gift.

3. A package of noodles with no meat except for “chicken extract.”

4. Answers of “yes” at the Global Entry kiosks regarding whether our family had meat & vegetables.

5. An answer of “yes” on the front of the paper customs form regarding meat & veg.

6. A mention of the words “etc” after “commercially packaged snacks,” and also “bread” on the back of the form.

7. Tired families with two young children.

8. A wife with pregnancy related sickness.

9. A wife who speaks limited English and who cannot understand quickly-spoken questions from angry exacting CBP officers.

All of these factors combine and result in the following requests:

Request 1: That the $500 fine imposed on my wife be dropped. If it cannot be fully dropped then at least reduced to the lowest amount possible (eg: $1 or $0).

Request 2: That the US CBP confirm that my wife’s Global Entry membership is not threatened by the harassment & abuse & fine we received at SFO on March 27, 2016.

We are not terrorists. We are not criminals. And frankly we don’t deserve to be treated the way we have been so far.

We request to be able to appeal the fine imposed, and appeal in such a way which doesn’t require that we travel to San Francisco nor to a physical courtroom.

We request to be able to appeal the threats made to my wife’s Global Entry membership. A termination or blocking of her membership will be a de facto termination of all our our memberships.

Does the CBP ever forget & ever forgive? Or are citizens & permanent residents given permanent “black marks” if we do not respond with full & very quick courtroom-style accuracy to their grilling interrogative questions? Quick probing interrogative questions given to a woman who doesn’t fully understand what exactly is being asked of her?

My wife hopes to become a U.S. citizen within the next year or two, primarily because we have two U.S. born children and third on the way. Will my wife’s ability to become a citizen be threatened by what’s happened to us so far?

We request that all the factors mentioned in this letter be read & fully considered, and that our appeal requests as stated and noted be granted & honored as requested.

---

The way the United States treats visitors & returning citizens & residents is hostile.

Yes of course terrorists should & must be blocked & stopped. But most people are just regular travelers. The CBP should be more accommodating & kind (yes kind). By comparison when people visit China, very little if any “customs” checking is done. Essentially zero for regular visitors. Same goes for many other countries. Such countries are very welcoming to visitors.

The US regulations regarding meat & vegetables are overly punitive, and are enforced in a highly hostile & apparently unfair manner. The face presented by the US to visitors is not welcoming. It’s iron-fisted & just plain mean. Even citizens & returning residents are treated badly & harassed & abused.

Sincerely,

Obra de teatro para dos mujeres y un hombre

Maritales

Personajes 
SERGIO: Cincuentón bien conservado
MARY: Próxima a los 30 años. Hermosa
LAURA: Cuarentona bien conservada.

Acto I 


Al centro, un espacio que aparenta ser un ventanal, servirá para proyectar el mundo audiovisual que interiorizan los personajes de este mundo clase media conformado por: Sergio, somnoliento y apoltronado en su chaise longue mientras hace zapping. Viste una bata que le resta juventud. A su lado esparcidos, están los periódicos del día y las revistas económicas de la semana y un bar portátil. 

Al otro extremo, un par de sillas con una mesa telefonera al centro, es el espacio de Mary. Se aplica una crema para las manos, delicadamente.Viste un negligé poco agraciado. 

Ambos miran frontalmente al público la secuencia del audiovisual: 
1. Una misión interplanetaria. Un módulo espacial se desplaza por el universo, al fondo se ve la tierra. 
2. Grandes inundaciones por efecto invernadero. 
3. Rostro de niño africano, con evidentes signos de hambre. 
4. Una pareja brinda amorosamente en un lujoso restaurante. 
5. Ruinas por un bombardeo en el medio oriente. 
6. Rostros sonrientes de políticos reunidos en una cumbre mundial. 
7. Emisión de gases altamente contaminante.  
8. Deshielo de glaciales. 
9. Una pareja besándose apasionadamente. 
10. Subjetiva de una mujer llevándose a la boca una anticonceptiva. 

(El audio en off es ininteligible porque se ha alterado mecánicamente la velocidad del narrador. A Sergio le causa repulsión la última imagen de la secuencia. Compulso, apaga la emisión del noticiero televisivo. Mary inalterable.)



SERGIO: ¡Sinvergüenzas!… Razón tenía mamá cuando sentenció que las anticonceptivas, serían el comienzo de la degeneración moral. 
MARY: Todavía lo dice. 
SERGIO: Y eso que no se ha enterado que legalizaron la píldora del día después… 
MARY: (Autómata) Les quedó redondito: la de antes para el «antes» y la del después para… SERGIO: ¡Alcahuetes! En eso se convirtieron los científicos. Por un lado curan los cuerpos y por el otro, pudren los espíritus. 
MARY: No había pensado en eso. 
SERGIO: Tampoco yo, pero tu suegra sí... Lo dijo hasta el cansancio. 
MARY: ¡Como siempre…! (Sonríe) ¿Te dije que papá estuvo en contra de cualquier método? Decía que con esa excusa, ninguna mujer llegaría virgen al matrimonio. 
SERGIO: ¡Lo mismo que pienso yo! 
MARY: «Nada que atente contra la vida marital» fue lo último que dijo y murió. 
SERGIO: Fíjate qué importante eso: murió borracho pero claro en sus ideas.
MARY: ¡Ah sí!, Es que no soportaba la desfachatez y ¿el libertinaje? menos, le daba ¡asco!…
SERGIO: Descansa en paz suegro mío. Y tu mami, ¿qué decía?
MARY: (Se queda en blanco) …Nunca opinó
SERGIO: Y falta no hizo: apenas la conocí en el manicomio, supe que había sido una santa mujer.
MARY: (Asiente con su cabeza) Fiel como ninguna.
SERGIO: Mujer de un solo hombre.
MARY: Y solamente en dos oportunidades. Una vez para traer al mundo a mi hermana…Y la última
para que naciera yo.
SERGIO: Mamá pasó una sola vez por ese asqueroso afán.
MARY: Valió la pena. Lo único que le adeudas es un nieto.
SERGIO: El tiempo de Dios es perfecto. (Se le escapa un bostezo. Hojea la revista.)
MARY: Lo tenemos todo para que el niño venga.
SERGIO: (Por la revista) Inmuebles, Inversiones...
MARY: (Por sus carencias) Amor… Ansias.
SERGIO: Todo. Aquí está todo… para llegar a la meta.
MARY: Hasta mis últimos óvulos sanos. ¿Hasta cuándo esperamos?
SERGIO: (Cae en cuenta de que hablan de diferentes temas)…Deberían preguntárselo a mamá. (Reparando) ¿Y esa bata? (A Mary la felicidad se le dibuja en el rostro. Él esquiva su mirada hundiendo su atención en un artículo de la revista).
MARY: ¿Te gusta? A mí, mucho (Gira lenta y torpemente sobre sí para llamar su atención). Por la seda, el corte… el color… ¡Por la fecha!
SERGIO: ¡Degenerada! ¿Cómo se le puede dejar a una mujer ser tan cara dura?
MARY: ¡Sergio!, amorcito… ¿Qué pasó?
SERGIO: La maratonista ésta… (Señala la revista) la muy sinvergüenza ganó todos los premios porque usaba esteroides...
MARY: (Aliviada) Pensé que...
SERGIO: Que sí tenía condiciones y que había llegado a la meta, honradamente.
MARY: Exactamente.
SERGIO: Ya decía que, tanta perfección en ese cuerpo, no era normal. (Detalla a Mary) ¡Normal eres tú!… ¡Estás como estás! Vas con tu edad.
MARY: (Se detalla) ¿Tú crees?
SERGIO: Claro. Esa bata, por ejemplo, va bien contigo. A simple vista uno dice: Ella es… toda una señora.
MARY: Si quieres… me la quito.
SERGIO: (Escandalizado) ¿Aquí? Estás loca. Cada cosa en su lugar. (Mary baja su cabeza apenada) ¿Qué pasa?
MARY: ¿A mí? Nada. Solamente pues… como son las doce de la noche y te tienes que levantar tan temprano… pensé que deberíamos… acostarnos…
SERGIO: (Bosteza) Con razón se me disparó mi reloj biológico.
MARY: (Desconcertada) ¿Ya tienes sueño?
SERGIO: Como nunca.
MARY: Yo no.
SERGIO: ¿Tomaste las pastillas?
MARY: ¿Hoy…?
SERGIO: Y mañana y pasado… y siempre. Mary, tú no puedes jugar con el tratamiento.
MARY: Pero Sergio…
SERGIO: Sin ningún «pero». Tómatelas y mientras tanto, reviso las cerraduras. (Se va por el lado izquierdo.)
MARY: (Lo ve salir y se desconcierta. Toma el teléfono y marca un número, llena de nerviosismo) Laura… ¿Estás ahí? Chica, perdóname la hora… pero… ¡Sergio no recordó que estamos de aniversario! Además, tiene sueño y yo… Si puedes llámame ahorita o… mañana… ¡o cuando te salga, pues!… ¡Cónchale vale, ¿qué te pasa conmigo? Devuélveme las llamadas!
(Cuelga el auricular. Toma el portarretratos y contempla la fotografía de su boda. En la ventana-pantalla vemos lo que ella observa. La iluminación cambia, circunscribiéndola. Toma un vaso con agua y unas pastillas, las traga.)
Mary: (Obstinada y a sí misma) Mary, atragántate de pepas y a dormir (Resopla deprimida y congela
su movimiento brevemente).
(En off se oye efecto de click obturador de cámara fotográfica. Cambio de iluminación. La fotografía proyectada se difumina. Mary, se levanta quitándose sensualmente la bata. La que trae por debajo es
una versión más atrevida de la que tenía puesta —tal y como le gustaría llevarla diariamente—. Se sienta en el chaise longue de su marido. Toma el control remoto.)
SERGIO: (Dicharachero) ¡Sinvergüenzas!... Razón tenía mamá cuando sentenció que, la píldora anticonceptiva, sería el comienzo de la degeneración.
MARY: Todavía lo dice...
SERGIO: Por decirlo nomás… ¡Con las lagunas que tiene! (Toma el control y apaga la TV). Mary,
mírame mi amor. Llegó tu diversión.
MARY: Ay, no lo digas así que pareces un viejo verde.
Siempre estás pensando en lo mismo.
SERGIO: Ah… ¿y tú no?
MARY: Sí, igual pero lo disimulo. Anda, acuéstate…
SERGIO: (Relamiéndose) ¿Ya? ¿De una vez?
MARY: Claro… Mañana tienes que ir a lo oficina… ¿O, no? Sergio va al barcito y toma una copa, se sirve un trago.
SERGIO: ¿Sabes qué? Inventaría cualquier pretexto para no ir.
MARY: (Doble intencionada) Tienes que cumplir.
SERGIO: (Pausita) Me pareció oír a mamá. (Contiene su risa burlona) ¿Un traguito?
MARY: Si me tomo uno… iré por el segundo y después (Ríe insinuante), no respondo.
SERGIO: Date con furia pero calladita… (Sirve dos tragos)
MARY: ¡No, vale! Me pica la lengua de las ganas que tengo…
SERGIO: (Infantil) Mami… Hoy no...
MARY: Ay sí papi… déjame decirte, eso que tanto te excita.
SERGIO: Estoy «ladillado» de oír tanta «habladera» de paja.
MARY: Anda, déjame hablarte como la tipa de la línea caliente.
SERGIO: (Se carcajea) ¡Coño, no!… Esa tipa es gorda, miope y con aliento de morgue. ¡Cómo se nota que no sabes de publicidad! (Le ofrece el trago) (Mary desganada niega con su cabeza y lo recibe) ¡Salud!
MARY: Ya va, primero dime, ¿por qué brindaremos?
SERGIO: ¿Por qué va hacer? Por mi «empresa matrimonial». Por los cinco años invirtiendo y ganando.
MARY: (Emocionada) ¡Gordo! Pensé que te habías olvidado…
(Chocan las copas)
SERGIO: Mal pensada. Es más, anteayer en plena reunión con los creativos que estaban exponiendo
las ideas para una campaña de un producto —qué sé yo—, el Presidente me preguntó: «Sergio, ¿có -
mo las ves?».
MARY: ¿Y tú?
SERGIO: (Poético. Soñador) «Redondas… firmes y tersas» (transición). ¡Mary, pensaba en tus tetas! (Ríe).
MARY: (Ríe feliz) ¡Ocioso! Y ¿cómo lo remediaste?
SERGIO: Como todo en este país: a punta de lengua. No importa lo que digas, lo importante es que no pares de hablar.
MARY: (Muerta de la risa) O sea, que no dijiste nada… porque si te sinceraras…
SERGIO: Ay, mamá… y con lo que me gusta a mí decirlo, ¡rico! Y que me lo digas.
MARY: ¿Viste, viste que sí te gusta que te diga cochinadas? ¡Pura pinta! Te haces el formalito y lo que llevas abajo es un volcán.
SERGIO: Caliente y a punto de estallar…
MARY: Si te conocieran... en la oficina…
SERGIO: ¿Qué te crees tú? ¿Que trabajo en la Santa Sede? ¡Sí cómo no! Esos carajos con un par de
estos (señala el whisky) se olvidan del mercadeo y lo que están pendientes es de…
MARY: De lo mismo que tú ¿O, no?
SERGIO: Todos somos unos bichitos…
MARY: La diferencia es que esos viejos tienen que pagar…
SERGIO: ¡Y duro!… a sus secretarias.
MARY: A sus peluqueras.
AMBOS: ¡A sus puticas! (Ríen)
MARY: En cambio tú sabes que aquí lo tienes todo-todito.
SERGIO: (Se le aparta) ¡Otro traguito me vendría bien!
MARY: Y por eso es que te haces el duro… (Sergio observa, sin saber qué decir. Ella haciéndose la
importante) Y no me mires así que, lamentablemente, mis hormonas… duermen… roncan…
SERGIO:Yo sé desperezarlas…
MARY: (Bosteza) ¿Ah, sí?
SERGIO: Ujúm… prefiero esperar a que se despierten…
MARY: ¡Ay, que paciente eres…! Pasarán años.
SERGIO: Lo bueno se hace esperar.
MARY: ¿Y cómo sabes cuándo ellas despiertan y gritan: ¡Acción!?¿las presientes? (Sergio niega) ¿Las husmeas? (Ídem) Entonces, dime, coño, ¿cómo haces…? ¡Anda dímelo, papi!
(Sergio rie e imita, a través de un gesto manual, el tic nervioso recurrente y particular de Mary.)
MARY: ¡Qué bolas…me descubriste! (Desencajada) Cada veintiocho días me da por… ¡Y yo creyendo que no lo habías notado!
SERGIO: Me hago el pendejo… Tranquila vale, sentir ganas es sentir la vida. Además, tú eres así como especial… porque le pones musiquita (Compone el tic físico y el sonido onomatopéyico). ¡Unma trum tic-tic… tic-tic! ¡Unma trum tic-tic… tictic! ¡Unma trum tic-tic… tic-tic! ¡Unma trum tictic…tic-tic!
(Mary, histérica, le lanza las revistas. Sergio, protegiéndose rie y sale de escena por el lado izquierdo. Ella queda congelada y en su rostro se dibuja pánico. En off se oye efecto de click obturador de cámara fotográfica. Cambio de iluminación. Regresa Sergio, trae una chaqueta de cuero en su brazo y un whisky servido. Descansa la chaqueta en el respaldo de su chaise longue. Detalla a su mujer y se le abalanza. La abraza. La besa por la oreja tiernamente. Ella lo esquiva. El insiste y luego intenta
besarle, pero Mary se le separa.)
MARY: Deja. (Pausa) ¿Qué es lo que decía tu mamá de la anticonceptiva hace cuarenta años?
SERGIO: (Desganado) ¿Otra vez con el mismo cuento?
MARY: Es que he estado pensando que el punto no es la píldora anticonceptiva que una se traga. Bueno, tú sabes que yo nunca la he tomado.
SERGIO: Déjate de pensar y pasemos a la acción.
MARY: ¡Quédate quieto! Oye esto: el punto a discutir es sobre las ganas que se tiene de ser fiel o no.
SERGIO: (Insiste en tomarla) Ese no es el punto...
MARY: ¿Ah no…? Y entonces, ¿cuál es?
SERGIO: El que te hago sentir (Agarrándolo, excitado) ¿Sí? Déjate, anda, estoy full… (Quiere acostarla sobre su chaise longue. Mary lo vuelve a esquivar)
MARY: En público, no... ¿Qué te pasa? Además, no me gusta que me trates así, como si yo fuese una
cualquiera… (tomando la chaqueta y, por oficio, limpia el polvo.) Soy una señora, ¿okey?
SERGIO: Okey, señora para lo demás pero NO para mí… Si no tuvieras ganas, no te vestirías así…
MARY: ¿Así cómo? ¿Ah? ¿Dime?
SERGIO: ¡In… insinuante… pues!
MARY: ¡Esto es el colmo! Me prometes llegar temprano y te apareces a la media noche, a medio palo
y encima me vienes con sandeces.
(Mary va a salir pero percibe que en el bolsillo de la chaqueta hay una tarjeta. La palpa. Cruza miradas con Sergio. La revisa y, en el enves, lee un número telefónico.)
MARY: (Modulando exageradamente el nombre que lee en la tarjeta) «Xiomara’s Stylos». ¿De cuando acá tu compañía se encarga de publicitar una peluquería de medio pelo?
SERGIO: Espérate Mary, que las cosas no son como parecen.
MARY: Eso es justamente lo que yo digo porque…
SERGIO: Porque ya vas a empezar a calumniarme.
MARY: ¿De qué te acusas si todavía no he dicho nada?…
SERGIO: Te conozco.
MARY: Y yo también. Por eso intuyo que esta tarjeta pertenece a aquella cosa que se nos cruzó al mediodía, en la puerta del restaurante.
SERGIO:Ya, va. Ya va…
MARY: (Cuaima) Ese envoltorio, celulítico, recubierta de chatarras sonoras y peliteñida, sólo puede llamarse Xiomara… ¿O me equivoco señor publicista?
SERGIO: ¡Qué vaina contigo! ¿Cómo se te ocurre? Además, en qué momento yo… ¿yo, hablé con alguien?
MARY: Claro que tuviste tiempo.
SERGIO: Qué bolas.
MARY: Cuando compré la revista en el kiosco. Te conozco, mosco.
SERGIO: ¿Vas a seguir con lo mismo? Te dije que no hablé con ella, que simplemente me metí en el
carro. ¡Verta!
MARY: (Repara en el envés de la tarjeta) Cero, cuatro, uno… ¿Y por qué tienes su número escrito a
mano? ¡Coño!
SERGIO: ¿Cuántas tarjetas no recibo al día, Mary? Yo ando en la calle… Veo, hablo con gente… Lo menos que puede aparecer en mi chaqueta es… ¡es una bendita tarjeta!
MARY: Júramelo.
SERGIO: Te lo juro por las cenizas de mi padre.
MARY: (Conteniendo la ira) Mi suegro está vivo, ¡infeliz!
SERGIO: Pero morirá y habrá que incinerarlo… ya lo pidió.
MARY: Búrlate de mí.
SERGIO: ¡Otra vaina más!
MARY: Claro sí… A ver, júramelo por tu madre.
SERGIO: Está bien… (Levanta la mano desanimado) Por mi mamá.
MARY: Así no. Jura con un puñado de cruces… ¡y los besas!
SERGIO: ¿Qué te pasa?
MARY: (Deprimiéndose) Que me siento otra vez… engañada… estafada… utilizada…
SERGIO: Es como mucho. ¿No te parece?
MARY: Muchísimo, porque no tienes límites. (Sergio se señala incrédulo) Tú, sí… tú mismo, chico. ¿O es que tú crees que ya me olvidé de la cantidad de veces que te vi, metiéndole ojo a cuanta «bichita» se cruzaba frente a ti?
SERGIO: ¿Te tomaste el antidepresivo?
MARY: (Histérica) Fue casarme contigo para que se te cayera la máscara.
SERGIO: ¡Qué máscara ni qué nada!
MARY: En plena luna de miel, te conseguí con… con la fichera esa.
SERGIO:Me viste hablando con la directora de Atención al Cliente del casino.
MARY: Hablarían lenguas muertas… porque con la «peliteñida», no te oí sino te vi.
SERGIO: Y vuelve el mismo sonsonete. Ponme otra musiquita, vale.
MARY: Tú que (lo imita) «no, chica, viste mal… no es así»… ¡Y era así!… Y después la otra, la otra y la otra… ¡Coño, yo no pude haber estado viendo alucinaciones siempre!
SERGIO: ¿Y por qué no? (Pausita tensa) Tu psiquiatra me explicó que esa fase alucinatoria es la peor. (Mary se desarma) Yo trato de entenderte, pero pon de tu parte (Pausa). Ven, vamos al cuarto.
MARY: No. No voy a acostumbrarme a arreglarlo todo en la cama. (Toma el teléfono inalámbrico y marca el número de la tarjeta) Cero cuatro uno…
SERGIO: ¡Mira la hora que es! Dame acá eso.
(Mary se le escapa mientras continúa marcando.)
MARY: Ya va. ¡Ella es mi solución! Quiero que tu peluquera me decolore y que me ponga aquí (se toma el cabello), ese amarillo putica que tanto te excita…
SERGIO: ¡Estás de remate, chica!
MARY: ¿Aló? (dulcemente celosa) Estoy llamando de parte del «Publicista»… Bueno, porque soy su
asistente personal… Óyeme pendeja: lo sé todo.
SERGIO: ¡Mentiras!
MARY: Me dijo que te quería hacer (doble intencionada) «un casting» porque tú tienes el tipo que a ese cliente enloquece… Porque le gustan gordas, ordinarias y putas como tú.
SERGIO: ¡No le creas, Xiomara!
(Mary cuelga. Ambos se miran con tensión.)
SERGIO: ¿Qué ganaste con eso?
MARY: (Señala con sus dedos) Dos cosas. Dos nomás. La seguridad y la libertad.
SERGIO:Y una camisa de fuerza.
MARY: ¡Estoy segura que no alucino, señor antifaz!
SERGIO: Epa, sin ofensas porque así no podemos hablar…
MARY: Te digo más: haré lo que me venga en gana sin remordimientos de conciencia.
SERGIO: ¿Tú? No me hagas reír…
MARY: Carcajéate. Dale. Comienza. A partir de mañana, me tiro a la calle y el primero que me haga un cruce de luces, me lo llevo a la cama.
SERGIO: (Burlón) ¿Quién iba a decir que terminarías tan liberal? (Transición) Eso no te lo crees ni tú misma, ¡necia!
MARY: ¿No dijo el cura que la mujer tiene que seguir al hombre en lo bueno y en lo malo? Entonces lo haré al pie de la letra.
SERGIO: Párame ese cuento ahí, Mary, que no me la voy a calar.
MARY: Déjame terminar. Estoy hablando de lo que te gusta.
SERGIO: Gustarme ¿qué?
MARY: El tema de los cachos te debe morbosear…
SERGIO: ¿A mí?
MARY: A ti. Porque, si no, ¿cómo me explico que me engañes tanto?
SERGIO: ¡Doble play, pues!
MARY: Acéptalo y ya. ¡Estás loco, loquito por enterarte de que meto a cientos, a miles de hombres en tu cama!
SERGIO: ¿Ah sí…? (Siguiéndole el juego por morbo) ¿Y? Y… ¿Qué le haces? ¡Vamos, cuéntamelo! Ábrete conmigo. Una fantasía puede tenerla cualquiera. (La toma entre sus brazos.)
MARY: ¡Hiedes a caña!
SERGIO: (Excitado) Di la verdad, di que te huelo a macho excitado.
MARY: (Renuente) Suéltame…
SERGIO: ¡Libérate! (La manosea) Imagínate que yo no soy yo. Imagínate que me trajiste de la calle… tómame… anda… házmelo.
MARY: (Lo abofetea) ¡Respétame!
SERGIO: ¡Y tú a mí! Ni en serio ni en joda me complaces. Entonces ¿qué?, ¿me vas a tener en perpetua cuarentena?
MARY: Resuélvete como siempre. Con la de turno o manualmente, tú verás. Porque éste cuerpo, señor antifaz, éste que tanto despreciaste, no será tuyo, nunca más. ¡Nunca!
(Mary sale de escena altiva. Sergio no sabe qué hacer. Se sirve un trago. Toma el control remoto, lo pulsa y se enciende la ventana-pantalla. Las luces bajan a penumbras. Bebe a fondo blanco. En off se oye efecto de click obturador de cámara fotográfica. Cambio de iluminación. Sergio se derrumba mientras se proyecta por video una secuencia rápida de planos de piel, tanto de hombre como de mujer. Contornos, líneas. Sólo piel. Se abre una luz y Mary está, exactamente igual al momento
en que iba a salir, pero percibió que en el bolsillo de la chaqueta de Sergio había una tarjeta. Ambos se congelan. Mary, mientras cruza miradas con Sergio, revisa en el bolsillo de la chaqueta. Extrae la tarjeta. Le van ta su mano, llevando cerca de su rostro asemejando una cuña televisiva.)
MARY: (Modulando exageradamente el nombre que leen en la tarjeta) «Xiomara’s Stylos» (Pausa. Realiza el tic corporal y el sonido onomatopéyico). Unma trum tic-tic… tic-tic.
SERGIO: (Para sí) Las cosas no son como parecen (Se percata de la presencia de Mary. Se le acerca en franco galanteo. La imita) ¡Unma…!
MARY: …Trummmmmm!!!!
AMBOS: tic-tic… tic-tic tic-tic… tic-tic tic-tic… tic-tic
(Se carcajean. Se abrazan sensualmente. Se alejan repitiendo el tic. Todo en escena oscurece. Solamente queda la secretaria de la ventana-pantalla repitiéndose. Pausa escénica. Luego un timbre telefónico. La luz. Es un nuevo día. Mary, entra vestida igual a como la vimos en la primera escena. Está desganada. Trae entre manos la chaqueta que corresponde al traje con el que se vestirá Sergio. Toma el auricular.)
MARY: ¿Aló?… Hola Laura. No te preocupes… Nos levantamos temprano. Todo bien. ¿Y tú, qué?
¿Pasó algo? Amiguita me tienes abandonada… Sí, sí ya sé que tu novio, no te deja sola… Me
alegro por ti… ¿Sergio? pues…
SERGIO: (Desde adentro) ¿La chaqueta?
MARY: (Habla alto) Aquí la tengo. (A Laura) Disculpa Laura, pero tú sabes que ésta es la hora de la
corredera y tengo que atender al «señor», como Dios manda. Todo en su lugar, a la hora en punto
porque si no…
SERGIO: (Desde adentro) ¿Le pongo azúcar blanca a tu café?
MARY: (Le responde) No. Ponle edulcorante, por fa… (A Laura) Laura, yo voy a estar aquí todo el día. Déjate de eso. No tengo ánimos para salir, mejor vente y me cuentas todo lo de Omar… (Ríe)
Francamente nunca te había sentido así, tan envalentonada… ¿te espero? No tienes por qué anunciarte. Ok. Chao… (Cuelga.) (Aparece en escena Sergio con dos tazas de café. Ya está vestido para su nueva jornada laboral. Mary lo ayudará, cual madre, a vestir. Le arregla la corbata, la
correa y hasta la pollina le peina.)
SERGIO: (Le entrega la taza de café) ¿Hablabas con Laura?
MARY: ¿Con quien más?
SERGIO: ¿Y esa cara?
MARY: La de siempre.
SERGIO: No me engañes. Tómate el café. (Ella lo hace) ¿Te pasa algo?
MARY: No me hagas caso.
SERGIO: Y ¿por qué no? Eres mi esposa desde hace, ¿cuántos? ¿Seis años?
MARY: Exactamente, ayer los cumplimos.
SERGIO: ¿Ayer? Ay coño, ¡Se me pasó otra vez!
MARY: Igual que el año pasado.
SERGIO: Es que uno, no está pendiente de… (Pausa. Bebe) Me lo hubieses recordado… tal vez anoche habríamos tenido un poco de acción…
MARY: Por favor, Sergio.
SERGIO: Deja que me excuse: un marido debe cumplir con sus obligaciones maritales.
MARY: El año pasado tampoco tuvimos nada y no te reclamé. Para mí no son obligaciones.
SERGIO: Pero lo son. En parte sí. A ver si lo entiendes mejor: es una parte del todo.
MARY: Se te va hacer tarde.
SERGIO: Mi deber es resolverte casa, comida, comodidad y…
MARY: Y nada más. Yo estoy bien, porque tú cumples en todo…
SERGIO: En casi todo, porque me falta la última «ce» (Enumera) Casa… Comida… Comodidad y…
Ca-ma.
MARY: ¡Ordinario! Ni que eso fuera necesario…
SERGIO: (Recoge la taza de ella y mira en el fondo) ¿Ah, no?
MARY: No. Lo único que me falta es un carajito.
SERGIO: Te falta acabar… (Por la taza) Te queda un sorbo. (Le devuelve la taza. Mary lo mira incrédula y luego bebe) Yo sé que tú a veces quisieras más pero debes comprender que si no hago uso
del matrimonio todos los días es porque tengo que madrugar… y por las noches, pues, llego muy cansado.
MARY: (Como una letanía) Por las reuniones interminables, por tu jefe insoportable, por el cliente
imbécil que no sabe lo que quiere…
SERGIO: Entonces lo único que me provoca al llegar es…
MARY: Tomarte un whisky
SERGIO: Exactamente… y como me relajo tanto pues… se me olvida lo demás (va a salir con las dos tazas).
MARY: Déjalas aquí. (Por la chaqueta) Ven, póntela… y ya… que no te estoy reclamando nada… Si tu mamá te oyera, pensaría que le estoy faltando al juramento que le hice.
SERGIO: (Atento) ¿Qué juramento?
MARY: Pues eso de que (la imita) «Hay cosas más bellas y espirituales en qué pensar».
SERGIO: Mi vieja… no se pela… (Colocándose la chaqueta) Porque si yo no trabajo duro, ¿de dónde vamos a sacar para darnos esta vida?
MARY: Si tú me dejaras. Con mi Licenciatura en Mercadeo, pues.
SERGIO: No tienes experiencia. Lo que te sale es un empleo público ¿Y tú crees que con un sueldito
de esos se puede vivir como nos gusta? ¡Por favor! Tendrías que ser Ministra.
MARY: Por lo menos pagaría mis cosas.
SERGIO: No te alcanzará ni para la peluquería. Y mucho menos para tus medicamentos. Qué proletaria eres. Piensa más arriba. ¡Business - business!
MARY: (Burlona y vengativa) Ay sí… porque tú eres el dueño de la compañía…
SERGIO: Todavía, no. Pero tampoco soy el que empezó creyendo que todo me sería fácil. Que con mi cara y mi título tendría el mundo a mis pies. Yo hice lo que me enseñó papá: trabajar duro, sin
excusas, sin ausencias y por mi cuenta.
MARY: (Para sí) Sin importarte nadie.
SERGIO: (En lo suyo) ¡Duro para escalar! (Ignorándola) Razón tenía cuando dijo: «Lo primero en la vida es el trabajo, sin trabajo no hay matrimonio que dure y sin matrimonio no hay sociedad completa».
MARY: (Enganchándose de nuevo) Papá también decía lo mismo… pero nunca lo practicó.
SERGIO: (En lo suyo) Y cuando se bebía unos cuantos tragos, en la Hermandad Gallega, me aconsejaba, (Lo imita cual gallego, fumando compulso) «Después, si te sobra tiempo hijo (tose), pues, desahógate con tu mujer…».
MARY: Desahogar… ¿qué?
SERGIO: La naturaleza del hombre. Somos diferentes: Mente diferente, cuerpo diferente, hormonas… todo, ¿entiendes? (Mary niega. Él en pose de machote) Cultívate mujer: anatomía pura y diferencial (se toma los testículos).
MARY: (Molesta) ¡Chico…! (Pausa) Mamá nunca me habló de eso. Pobrecita, a lo mejor papá tampoco se desahogaba con ella. Como todos los días llegaba borracho pues… (Repentinamente se ahoga en sollozos).
SERGIO: Te he dicho que no deberías recordar a tu familia. Mira cómo te pones. ¿Tomaste el antidepresivo? (Mary asiente) Últimamente te he visto rara… Deberías volver con el psiquiatra (Mary niega con la cabeza). O al endocrinólogo, pues… Él dijo que tenías problemas con la tiroides. Hipo -
tiroidismo, ¿no fue eso lo que dijo? (Mary asiente) Y que por eso es que te deprimes, por nada
más… (Mira su reloj) ¡La hora que es! Si no fuera por el tráfico.
MARY: No te preocupes. Anda, vete ya. Te va agarrar la cola.
SERGIO: Claro, claro… ¿Estás bien, verdad? Cualquier cosa, me llamas. (Va a salir, se devuelve) Casi me iba sin darte el besito de «feliz día».
MARY: Tranquilo. Laura vendrá dentro de un rato.
SERGIO: Aconséjala que no se case.
MARY: ¿Y, por qué no? Lleva un tiempito saliendo con Omar.
SERGIO: Lo mismo le pasó antes. Mas tardó saliendo que casada.
MARY: Dos matrimonios perdidos… No ha tenido suerte, la pobre.
SERGIO: O a lo mejor es que exige demasiado «la rica». Tiene pinta.
MARY: Sergio, por favor…
SERGIO: Eso lo notamos los hombres. Ah, que no lo digamos, es otra cosa.
MARY: Ella no habla de su vida íntima.
SERGIO: Es que un ser normal no necesita hablar, hacer y deshacer diariamente eso. Fíjate en nosotros ¿No la pasamos bien sin ser adictos sexuales? (Mary asiente) «Hay cosas más…».
MARY: (Completando)… «Más bellas y espirituales en qué pensar». Aunque claro, hay que hacerlo para engendrar. (Se enternece) ¿Te imaginas que tengamos una niña? Le enseñaremos eso también.
SERGIO: ¡Coño, la cola! (le da un besito, «piquito» desazonado.) (Sergio sale rápido de escena. Mary lo mira irse. Pausa. Detalla todo a su alrededor con infinita desolación. Se desploma en su silla. Reacciona sólo para tomar el teléfono sin marcar números.)
MARY: ¿Dónde estás, Laura? Vente rápido, me siento malísima.
(Cuelga el teléfono. Se recuesta. Cierra los ojos. Su cuerpo queda laxo. La iluminación cambia. Se abre un cenital al fondo y aparece Laura. Viste un traje ajustado y descotado. Trae puesta una peluca de color amarillo. Se aproxima a Mary.)
LAURA: (Como una letanía) Todas las semanas, de todos los meses, de todos los años que llevas de
casada, te sientes malísima.
MARY: ¿Será el hipotiroidismo?
LAURA: (Encogiéndose de hombros) ¡Qué sé yo! Tu hermana nunca sufrió de eso pero igualito cayó
en el picadero.
MARY: No quiero hablar de mi familia.
LAURA: Mejor, los muertos ya no son familia de una.
MARY: Su razón tendría cuando decidió quitarse la vida.
LAURA: Cosa que nunca entendí. ¡Zape! (Incisiva) Y tampoco entiendo a las que están aprontando su mortaja. Para mí la vida es ¡energía! Así que, vamos levántate (La ayuda a incorporarse).
MARY: (Quejumbrosa) Estoy aporreadísima.
LAURA: (Exageradísima) ¿No me digas que te dio? Mary, tú no puedes encubrirlo. Mira que si te
callas la primera vez te convertirás en su perita de boxeo.
MARY: ¿Cómo se te ocurre? Sergio es un santo. ¿No te das cuenta cómo me tiene…?
LAURA: ¡Hecha mierda!
MARY: No, Laura. Soy yo la que me escoñeto sola.
LAURA: Así era yo, hasta que me dejé de pendejadas.
MARY: ¡Ay! (Se soba los brazos y la nuca) Estoy como entumecida.
LAURA: ¡Me asustaste, vale! Porque como yo he visto tanto.
MARY: (Imitándola) Y has recorrido tanto… ¡Ay!
LAURA: Y lo que me falta… ¿No dicen que a la tercera es la vencida? Bien para allá voy… y si no, pues, será a la cuarta, o la quinta, o…
MARY: (Por sus dolores) Ay… ¿Será falta de ejercicio? ¡Ay!
LAURA: Puede ser. Chica, pon a sudar ese cuerpo.
MARY: La verdad es que no me provoca dar un paso afuera.
LAURA: Cuando tengo mis bajones, pues, convierto a Omar en mi entrenador personal.
MARY: (Sonríe adolorida) Tú siempre con el mismo tema.
LAURA: Es que todo está unido a eso. Fíjate, a lo mejor a ti te saldría bien una buena sesión de aerobic… Ahí, en tu misma cama, con tu maridito.
MARY: ¿Tú dices?
LAURA: Claro. Después de un buen round, sentirás la eficacia de los cardiovasculares… Cero tensión, cero dolor... y lo más rico, es que te sentirás livianita.
MARY: No todo en la pareja es piel… También cuenta el mundo de ideas.
LAURA: En eso somos geniales. Omar no es de mucho hablar, pero para inventar, está mandado a hacer.
MARY: Ah… ¿sí…?
LAURA: Y ¿por qué crees tú que me tiene medio loca? (Ríe) «Mi culito» 􀀀yo le digo así, tú sabes􀀀 ese no le para a nada. ¡Hace y deshace!
MARY: Y, ¿qué es lo que hace?
LAURA: Si me desea, me lo dice y me tiene.
MARY: ¿Y tú?
LAURA: Si lo deseo, se lo digo y me tiene. Nos damos con furia.
MARY: ¿Con la luz encendida o apagada?
LAURA: Encendida.
MARY: ¿Con ropa o sin ropa?
LAURA: ¡Desnudos, de bolas, como tiene que ser!
MARY: (Desvía la mirada. Nerviosa) Pero eso no lo es todo…
LAURA: Estas pálida.
MARY: (Titubea) El mundo es contención, reglas... normativas...
LAURA: Y las manos… te tiemblan
MARY: (Severa) Riendas… riendas… no se puede andar desbocado.
LAURA: Y la boca también… Mary, perdóname...
MARY: Esa libertad es dañina… todo lo corrompe… todo… todo.
LAURA: ¡Qué lengüilarga soy, en vez de quedarme callada! ¿Te busco una pepa?
MARY: Deja, deja. Es… que la cabeza me da vueltas… ¡la cabeza, el estómago… todo el cuerpo!
LAURA: Mejor será que te deje descansar.
MARY: No, no… quédate conmigo… estoy harta de la cama.
LAURA: ¡Porque no la aprovechas! Dormir se puede en cualquier lugar, pero francamente a tu edad, a mí no me dolía, lo que se llama «nada»: Y mira que no paraba de bonchar. Que si la disco, la playa… el Ávila… y aquellas perdidas… (Ríe) Chama, me despertaba sin saber en dónde ni con quién estaba (Se carcajea).
MARY: Por eso es que siempre quise ser tu amiga…
LAURA: Yo también te puse el ojo, en pleno entierro de tu hermana y, me dije: «Esa carajita es de pinga… No voy a dejar que le pase lo mismo, ¡Qué va! ¡Le sacaré la telaraña de la cabeza!».
MARY: Y así fue.
LAURA: Casi, fue.
MARY: Contigo pasé mi primer trasnocho. Me fumé el primer y último cachito.
LAURA: (Riéndose) Sí vale, tosiste como una tuberculosa y te dio sueño. Qué bien ibas, mi pana… hasta que te echaste a perder cuando te enamoraste de Sergio.
MARY: Él no me cambió. Él siempre fue muy formal…
LAURA: (Para sí) Anormal… diría yo.
MARY: Eso fue lo que más me gustó... Yo buscaba algo en serio…
LAURA: «Y en serie», di también. Porque tu vida, desde que te casaste, ha sido el propio dramón.
MARY: Con sus altos y bajos… Ahí vamos… Ayer cumplimos seis años.
LAURA: ¿Seis? Eso para mí sería un record Guiness. Y, ¿no te fastidias de lo mismo? O sea… (Mary desvía la mirada) Con razón estás molida. Echa tu cuento. (Mary ríe como una tonta para llenar el
espacio de las dudas) Lo único que falta es que ahora me digas que el tipo no te funciona.
MARY: …Sí, claro que sí. Sergio, es… es… bien.
LAURA: ¿Dotado?
MARY: ¿Cómo así? Laurita él es bien, bien chévere...
LAURA: Ay…chama, ¡me afocas con tu convicción! (Ríe)
MARY: De verdad que sí… él es...
LAURA: Lo que es y punto. Y bueno, si te funciona sácale provecho y verás cómo se te quitan todos
esos bajones.
MARY: Si tú lo dices.
LAURA: Lo digo yo y muchos científicos también. Chama, dicen que la vaina es tan, pero tan heavy, que te sube la endorfina ¿tú sabes lo que eso? (Mary niega) ¡Que ya no tendrás que tomar antidepresivos! (Ríe)
MARY: Se ve bonita esa idea…
LAURA: Pero tú, no. (Enfática) Tú te ves patética. Haz algo por ti. Renuévate. Anda, ve a cambiarte,
aunque sea por fuera. (Mary sale de escena. Laura se ubica en un extremo del proscenio para mirar al supuesto vecino, pero en realidad detalla a los hombres del público. La luz general baja y solamente un reflector la circunscribe. Se ilumina la pantalla-ventana. Es un primer plano de Sergio,
con lentes oscuros, que dialoga con Laura virtualmente, ella le responde desde su lugar.)
SERGIO: ¿Ya no te gusto?
LAURA: Me caso dentro de poco.
SERGIO: Esa no es la pregunta.
LAURA: Pero es mi verdad.
SERGIO: ¿Y de cuándo acá los hombres y las mujeres se dicen la verdad? (Se quita los lentes y sonríe maliciosamente detallándola).
(Mary entra a escena, vestida idénticamente a Laura. Trae un sobre en su mano. La proyección sale.)
MARY: (Histérica) ¡Me lo estabas ocultando! Pero, ¿cómo no me di cuenta antes?
LAURA: (Asustada) Mary, las cosas no son como parecen.
MARY: La misma frase trillada del desgraciado ese…
LAURA: Quiero decir…
MARY: Nada. Tú no tienes nada que decir…
LAURA: Pero, déjame hablar, coño.
MARY: Y ¿qué vas a decir? ¿Ah? Primero, tienes que saber cuál es el asunto para después opinar.
LAURA: No entiendo.
MARY: Ese es tu problema conmigo. No me escuchas. No me dejas decir mis cosas. ¿Por qué dices que eres mi amiga si me haces eso?
LAURA: Epa, no es así… yo te lo puedo explicar.
MARY: Ajá dime, ¿Qué puedo hacer si el desgraciado ese, hipotecó este apartamento, hasta los muebles, para comprarse un penthouse en Panamá... (Llora).
LAURA: (Boquiabierta y aliviada por la confusión) ¡No! O sea…
MARY: Sí… (Por el sobre) Aquí lo dice… y me quedé en la calle porque lo demandaron por incumplimiento.
LAURA: Es como para matarlo y lanzarlo al Canal.
MARY: Ni eso vale la pena porque terminaré, limpia y pudriéndome en la cárcel.
LAURA: Espérate, no te pongas así… A lo mejor eso no procede, porque tú eres la señora y si no firmaste, pues…
MARY: Sí firmé…
LAURA: Ah vaina… entonces, ya lo sabías.
MARY: No. De esto no. Yo firmé separación de bienes para que se casara conmigo…
LAURA: Guevona tú… ¿Cómo se te ocurrió, vale?
MARY: (Histérica) No fue idea mía sino de la cacatúa gallega ésa. Vivía remachándome dizque yo soy una muerta de hambre.
LAURA: ¿Pero qué le pasa? Tú… tú, vienes de una familia bien… O sea: de colegio de monjas, de vacaciones en Disney… ¡De Universidad paga! Pero, esa vieja está tostada o ¿qué?
MARY: No me perdona que sea su nuera…
LAURA: Por culpa tuya. Párala en seco. Dile así (se le cuadra): ¿Qué es lo que te pasa? ¿Tú eres Yocasta?, ¡Yo puta!
MARY: (Escandalizada) ¿Yo?
LAURA: Es una metáfora. Mira Laura: ¿sabes que es lo que más me gusta de Omar? ¡Que es huérfano y medio pela bolas!
MARY: No te creo… tiene buena pinta…
LAURA: Lo único que heredó de su familia fueron sus genes. Y eso es lo que a mí, me interesa. ¿La plata? se consigue. En cambio un buen ADN… tú me dirás.
MARY: Sergio, como que… Ay chica, ¿será estéril? Pudiera ser. Ellos son pura apariencia.
LAURA: Caras, se ven… pero corazones, cuentas y demás… (Repica el teléfono)
MARY: ¿Aló? Ya lo sé todo. Estamos hipotecados y todo por tus sueños de grandeza. Tú eres un nuevo rico con ínfulas de Onassis. Igual que tu madre. Pues sí me meto con tu madre, vieja mentirosa, mamasantos, castradora… ¡No me callo! Nunca te negué que, que nos arruinamos por las borracheras de papá. Tú sabías con quien te ibas a casar y yo no… (evidentemente le colgaron) ¿Viste, no? Este coño e’ madre, por nada se molesta… (Una gran sonrisa triunfalista se le dibuja en el rostro.)
LAURA: ¿Mejor?
MARY: Pues sí. Quedé livianita. (Cuelga el teléfono. Se recuesta.)

          The value of Google for Education in action: New Impact Portraits from US schools        

Editor’s Note: Earlier this week at ISTE, we announced new tools to support our future explorers and digital citizens, and we released seven new Impact Portraits profiling the impact of Google for Education and Chromebooks in districts across the US. Today we’ll dive deeper into the findings from these schools. For more information from ISTE, follow our updates on Twitter, and if you’re in San Antonio, visit us at booth #1718 to learn more and demo these new tools for yourself.

In 2016, we worked with Evergreen Education Group  answer a big and pressing question: Can we measure the impact of Chromebooks and G Suite for Education in schools? Evergreen’s discussions over 16 months with more than 100 school leaders from 6 countries was captured in a series of Impact Portraits—data-rich case studies with real school results. Their research uncovered four key factors that help schools and students flourish when adopting technology for the classroom: planning, professional learning, patience and support.

Today we take a closer look at the findings in seven new Impact Portraits from school districts across the U.S. These districts range in size and demographics from Florida’s Brevard County,  with a student population of 73,000 and 9,000 educators, to New York State’s Amherst Central, which has 4 K-12 schools, 2,944 students, and 263 educators.

The one thing these schools have in common: They're using Chromebooks and G Suite to drive measurable improvements in everything from reading skills to AP diploma graduation rates. Below are some key results from each school district.

Achieving a one-to-one environment for so many students changed everything. We now live and breathe the new approach every day. Chris Reed Principal at Williams Elementary, FL
  • The Metropolitan School District of Wayne Township, Indiana, deployed Chromebooks and G Suite for Education in fall 2014. Since then, Wayne Township’s scores on IREAD-3, Indiana’s measure of third-grade reading skills, have risen by 10% to 86%. High school graduation rates also rose 21.1%, from 67% to an average of 88.1%.

  • After giving every student a Chromebook, STEAM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Art, and Mathematics) Middle School of Choice, part of the Burleson Independent School District, Texas, surpassed every middle school in the district on the State of Texas Assessments of Academic Readiness and the BrightBytes’ CASE Technology Framework, which measures the impact of technology on learning outcomes. Engagement is high as well: One English teacher reported a 72% decrease in missed homework assignments after Chromebooks were introduced to her classroom.
  • In Brevard County Public Schools, Florida, Quest Elementary added 120 Chromebooks in 2014. Since then, the percentage of students scoring proficient or above in English/Language arts rose from 81% to 85% and students scoring proficient or above in math rose from 86% to 89%. Brevard’s West Shore Senior High School leveraged Chromebooks and G Suite for students seeking the new Advanced Placement (AP) Capstone Project diploma in 2016, which requires intensive research and collaboration. The first year the AP Capstone diploma was offered, 60 out of 160 graduating West Shore students received the prestigious diploma.

Brevard_BlogPost_Graphic-01.png

  • In 2013, Hoover City Schools, Alabama, in the Birmingham suburbs, gave students Chromebooks for classroom and home use. Students now have access to Chromebooks and G Suite wherever they go. For absent students, Hoover City created a virtual high school with online video lessons; the schools also introduced an Engaged Learning Facilitators (ELF) program, offering extra technology training to interested teachers who then coach and support other educators in the district.

  • The Oak Hills Local School District, Ohio saved more than  $100,000 a year in software license and server fees by adopting G Suite in 2009. Based on these benefits, the district gave Chromebooks to every student in its three middle schools over the next three years. By the 2016–17 school year, every student in grades 1–12 had their own Chromebook. Chromebooks cost 26% less than similar devices and also help prepare students for Ohio’s state testing, which is conducted online.

OakHills_BlogPost_Graphic-01.png

  • The Amherst Central School District, New York adopted G Suite in 2010, and, after positive reception to Google’s educational technology, in 2012, the district began using Chromebooks. Today, students use Google Slides to create digital portfolios and take virtual field trips with Google Expeditions. Google technology has proved so transformative in the district that the device-to-student ratio in Amherst schools is now approaching 1:1.

  • In 2015, Lee’s Summit R-7 School District, Missouri gave a Chromebook to 17,500 students from grade K-12 through the G Suite Connect2Learn program. Students can use their Chromebooks at school and at home (or wherever a WiFi hotspot is available), increasing their learning opportunities throughout the week. A year later, the district’s BrightBytes CASE scores had risen across all four measures of the test: Classroom (up 3.4%), Access (up 3.2%), Skills (up 1.5%), and Environment (up 1.5%).

          Creating a professional growth culture: 3 lessons from school districts        

Whether it’s a 3D printer, a language app, or a Chromebook on a student’s desk, technology represents potential. The results can be profound, but learning how to make the most of new tools often requires dedication outside of the standard school day.

We spoke with teachers and administrators at Cicero Public School District 99 in Illinois and Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools in Ohio about how they designed technology professional development programs to engage teachers for the long term. Here we share three lessons learned from their experiences building programs that impact educators and students alike.

Lesson 1: Incentives help overcome inertia

When the Cicero Public School District 99 board set the goal of giving every child access to a Chromebook, professional development for teachers became a top priority. CIO Cao Mac believed any tech rollout was bound to fail unless teachers got the right training. So his team came up with a plan to motivate teachers to get Google Certified—they’d offer them early access to new classroom devices.

The district now has 104 Google Certified Educators, and has seen a shift in how teachers use devices in the classroom. Before the training, students used laptops and tablets for activities like math games and music videos. Two months after the Chromebook rollout, the top five sites accessed across the district included Google Classroom, Google Docs and Khan Academy. “Right off the bat, they were no longer using their machines randomly,” Mac says. “Their use was more focused.”

Lesson 2: Time is a precious resource

Chagrin Falls Exempted Village School District is the first public school district to train all of its teachers to become Google Certified Educators. Administrators say they achieved 100 percent participation by customizing the program around teachers’ schedules.

“We made it easy for teachers get certified whenever it was most convenient,” says Nancy Kevern, a technology integration and instructional coach at Chagrin Falls Exempted Village Schools. “Grouping teachers by grade level helped us emphasize the lessons they would find most useful.”

The district also started a committee that works on solutions for fitting professional development into teachers’ busy schedules. They’ve proposed incorporating trainings into the school day—for instance, by delaying student start times.

Lesson 3: Community makes a movement

Cicero Public School District 99 took a grassroots approach to training its teachers. A group of technology resource teachers actively recruited teachers to get certified, leveraging their relationships to build a team of early adopters. This group influenced the rest of the district.

“We knew if these ambassadors were on board, their friends would be, too,” Mac says. “Adoption needs to happen teacher by teacher, grade by grade.”

This momentum has led Cicero Public School District 99 to extend its 1:1 Chromebook program to grades K-8. None of this would have been possible without support from teachers and the entire district.

This isn’t my initiative,” Mac says. “This is the village of Cicero’s initiative. This is ours. Cao Mac CIO at Cicero Public School District 99

Professional development is about more than introducing new tools. By helping educators develop the skills and confidence to grow professionally, school districts are investing in their students and building cultures that embrace technology. “It doesn’t matter how many devices you have,” Mac says. “If you don’t know how to integrate technology with teaching, it becomes just another add on.”

3- DOMINIO ESQUIABLE SKIWELT

Este año el dominio esquiable está todo conectado y se llama SkiWelt (El mundo del esquí).

MAPA DEL DOMINIO: http://skimap.skiwelt.at/?Lang=en

Nosotros (para que os ubiquéis), estaremos alojados en el pueblo de ELLMAU, y desde allí todos los días iremos haciendo recorridos varios por el dominio.

Uno de los días propondré hacer esquí nocturno en el pueblo de SÖLL, que aunque haya que pagar un suplemento por el esquí nocturno, creo que merecerá la pena (según me han comentado los foreros de Nevasport que han ido ya a este dominio)





Para los “ANDARINES” (los que no esquían o esquían poco), os pongo a continuación un enlace (en inglés) de las rutas invernales que hay por la zona de los pueblos del dominio, para que visitéis las estaciones en modo andarín.

https://www.wilderkaiser.info/en/winter-holiday/things-to-do/activities/winter-walking-hiking.html

- Estas rutas están indicadas para ir desde la base de la estación, hacia los Hütte escondidos de la estación.
- Los Hütte (refugios) escondidos, son los mejores para tomar algo, por lo bonita que es la construcción de los mismos y porque no suele haber mucha gente. (Además se suele comer muy muy bien)

Aquí os dejo el enlace a la WEB de SkiWelt para que le echéis un ojo, está en español, así que no tendréis ningún problema en ver todos los apartados que tiene la web.

7- SKIPASS – FORFAIT:

- La idea de este año es un viaje de esquí con base en Ellmau y esquiar durante toda o casi toda la semana en el dominio de SkiWelt.

- Pero debido a la proximidad de una de las estaciones más chulas de la zona, la idea será la siguiente:

11- DOCUMENTACIÓN:

- Como viene siendo habitual en mis viajes, después de que la gente ha realizado ya las reservas oportunas para el viaje, suelo comunicar que todo el mundo revise su documentación antes de realizar el viaje.

- Así que voy a enumerar toda la documentación necesaria para el viaje y así lo podremos revisar todos con tiempo:

o REVISAR FECHAS DE CADUCIDAD/VENCIMIENTO:

 D.N.I.
 PASAPORTE
 SEGURO DE ACCIDENTES PARA VIAJES DE ESQUÍ
 CARTA VERDE DEL COCHE (para los que van en coche desde otros países)

- Revisar esta documentación para que no pasen los siguientes supuestos:

o Si se lleva solo el DNI y se pierde durante el viaje, no podrá hacer el vuelo de vuelta, dado que el Carnet de Conducir no es un documento válido para acreditar la identificación.

o Por eso, hay que llevar el PASAPORTE (en regla), por si el DNI se pierde o nos lo roban, poder acreditar nuestra identidad mediante otro documento legal y vigente.


SEGURO DE ACCIDENTES:


- El seguro de Adeslas/Sanitas/etc… solo es válido para la atención médica, pero no para el rescate en pistas (OJITO CON ESTO!!!)

- Es conveniente hacerse un seguro específico para el viaje o para toda la temporada de invierno (según las circunstancias de cada uno).
• INTERMUNDIAL, FEDERACIONES DE DEPORTES DE INVIERNO, ETC…
• Si ya tenéis un seguro de estos, REVISAR FECHA DE VALIDEZ!!

Organización técnica CICMA2767.
          ERROR O INTENCIONALIDAD         
Sí, demasiados errores esta cometiendo la Administración Local de Vera en lo que concierne al nudismo.Y vamos a profundizar ampliamente en ello,  y Vds. analicen:


PRIMERO.-  En agosto del pasado año el Ayuntamiento colocó señales indicativas  como esta:


en distintas entradas a la playa desde la carretera GARRUCHA-VILLARICOS, pero ¿donde? en las siguientes entradas que aparecen en las fotografias:




Aquí también había otro igual que ponia Playa Nudista (no tenemos fotos de dicha señal,  pero la señal estaba). Esta entrada es la de la Urbanización Cala Marques (esos chalets tan bonitos, que todos habremos visto alguna vez). Han de saber que esta entrada de los chalets de Cala Marquez esta próxima a la desembocadura del río Antas (limite de demarcación de del Municipio de Vera)


Bien,  creemos  que solo lo pusieron en estas dos entradas. Y casualmente no pusieron ninguno en la entrada a la Avenida de la Tortuga Boba, esta:


cuando de todos es sabido que la Avd. de la Tortuga Boba lleva a la playa nudista.

Estas señales (Playa Nudista) que han estado expuesto hasta Mayo o Junio de este año, han sufrido todo tipo de correcciones, unos pintaban encima, y ponían textil, otros quitaban lo de Nudista, un jaleo, que cada vez que pasabas lo veías modificado. La de Cala Marques ha desaparecido. Pero recordad lo que hemos puesto anteriormente;  en la entrada a la Avd. de la Tortuga Boba (que da a la playa Nudista) el Ayuntamiento no coloco ninguno. ¿que raro no?



SEGUNDO.- También, sobre el mes de agosto del pasado año El Ayuntamiento de Vera en la playa coloca estratégicamente carteles informativos como este que ven al fondo de la foto a la izquierda de la caseta:




Son dos tipos de carteles, con las mismas normas de utilización, pero con dos diferencias. En la parte de arriba, incluye una fotografía de una persona desnuda a la orilla del mar y pone zona nudista, como este:



En otros las fotos son cuatro las fotografías, de personas realizando distinta actividades, ya no se menciona "nudista",  ni nadie en  las fotos aparece desnuda. Este es el cartel:



Pues bien, también casualmente al final de la Avenida de la Tortuga Boba donde empieza la playa, tenían colocado éste último. ¿otro error?.


TERCERO.- El Ayuntamiento de Vera en sesión extraordinaria de fecha 28 de abril de 2014 aprueba provisionalmente la Ordenanza Municipal reguladora  de Convivencia Ciudadana y Prevención de Actos Incivicos que consta de 42 páginas. En su articulo 32 apartado 4, dice lo siguiente:

(esta es una captura de pantalla, tal cual de la Ordenanza)


Pero si vas a lo que dispone el apartado número 6 del articulo 58 de la misma Ordenanza, te encuentras esto: (también captura de pantalla de la Ordenanza)


Es decir , que el articulo 58 no dispone de apartado  6 y no existe ninguna relación con lo que se expone   en   el articulo 32, apartado 4.

Pues este es su tercer  error y grave,  del que se hace mención  un articulo publicado ayer en las noticias de Vera de LA VOZ DE ALMERIA:
La ordenanza cívica que “por error” prohíbe el nudismo será modificada
El verano pasado Vera fue portada de los medios de comunicación cuando logró el récord Guiness del baño nudista colectivo. Un año después, el Pleno ha aprobado una ordenanza en la que se prohibe, no solo estar sin ropa, sino también el top-less.
Así, el artículo 32 sobre ‘Normas de conducta y tipificación de infracciones’ en su punto 4 recoge que queda prohibido: “Permanecer o circular en los espacios públicos a que se refiere la ordenanza en top-less o sin ropa alguna”. Aunque ese punto remite al 58.6 para las excepciones, en éste no se hace ninguna referencia a tales excepciones.
Sin embargo, y apesar de que la Ordenanza ha pasado dos veces por el Pleno y ya está definitivamente aprobada, aún no está vigente y lo más probable es que no llegue a estarlo con esa redacción.
El teniente de alcalde de Vera, Juan de la Cruz Belmonte, explica que “desde la Alcaldía se está barajando modificar ese punto. Creemos que es necesario adecuarla a la idiosincrasia y costumbres de nuestro municipio”.
Belmonte reconoce que “ha sido un error y hay que eliminarlo. Sería ir en contra de nuestros baluartes”. El teniente de alcalde recuerda que desde el Ayuntamiento se ha apoyado siempre la práctica naturista, tal y como ocurrió el verano pasado con a organización del récord Guiness que fue precedido por una carrera popular nudista.
Ahora, según explica, se ha pedido a los servicios jurídicos que estudien cómo proceder para “modificar o, incluso, eliminar ese punto y si hay que volver a llevarla al Pleno, se llevará”. Por ello, se ha dado instrucciones para que, de momento, no se envíe para su publicación en el Boletín Oficial de la Provincia.

Incredulidad â€œEso es imposible. En Vera no puede ser”. Esta ha sido la reacción de la mayoría de las personas a las que esta periodista ha comentado la ordenanza.
Sin embargo, vecinos de las urbanizaciones naturistas se mostraban entre indignados y preocupados.
Por su parte, el PSOE, que se abstuvo en la votación en el Pleno “porque hay puntos de la Ordenanza que están bien y son necesarios”, cree que prohibir el nudismo “sería tanto como cargarnos nuestra economía”, asegura Isabel de Haro, portavoz socialista en el Ayuntamiento.
En su opinión, en Vera se ha sabido compaginar el naturismo con el resto de formas de entender la vida, así es que De Haro se pregunta “cuando no hay problemas ¿por qué crearlos?.
El PA sí voto en contra de la Ordenanza porque “es una chapuza que no se ha estudiado. Al equipo de Gobierno le ha faltado trabajo y sensibilidad”, critica Francisco Vázquez, portavoz andalucista en Ayuntamiento.
También Vázquez cree que la nueva norma municipal se puede convertir “en un nido de conflictos”. FIN DEL ARTICULO.

 Pues bien esto es todo amigos como decía aquel, analicemos, pensemos, ¡Ah!, y sigamos practicando el nudismo por donde y  hasta ahora lo hemos venido haciendo, y con actitud, que por situaciones de estas ya hemos pasado. No estaría mal que nos diéramos una vuelta por este enlace: (y a las Autoridades Locales también se lo recomendamos) Resolución del Defensor del Pueblo Andaluz sobre Vera y Naturismo.

          the NEW workday {a series on entrepreneurship}        
Have you been feeling like you wish you had more control over your workday? Do you imagine a job that allows you to be healthy and productive and creative AND do your BEST WORK?

That feeling is exactly what drew me to entrepreneurship. I just knew that there was a better way to feel at the end of my workday. I had a vision for creating my company and work to fit my life and health.

After spending years advising and teaching others on systems and procedures, I decided to Do Things Differently  at Kimberley's Kitchen. Not only did I apply this vision and mantra to my product and service, I applied it to HOW I work. Here is what I did to revolutionize my workday-

Priorities

I started with making a basic list of priorities- all the things that mattered to me about HOW I work. It went something like:


  • eat and rest when I need to
  • work in a beautiful and inspiring space
  • spend little time sitting
  • flow from one task and project to another, etc
Notice how none of this is about products, management, strategies, etc. It is all about How I Want to Feel at Work. How do you want to feel at work? Do you feel that way now? Is there ONE SMALL CHANGE that you could make today to get you closer to your priorities?

One Small Change

Rather than taking on the arduous task of overhauling my office, kitchen, company, staffing, and more, I decided to implement the One Small Change Strategy. Very simply, I made small changes daily, weekly, monthly to move me towards my IDEAL WORKDAY. It is still a work in progress but I would say that most of the desired changes happened in about 6 months. I was okay with it being a process, and in fact the time allowed me to keep my business running while managing projects such as a major kitchen build for my commercial kitchen. 

Make My Plan Public

Committing to plans and ideas has always been a struggle for me. I may look like I jump in with both feet but let me tell you, I overthink and deliberate on decisions far too much. However, once I commit to something I try to make it public- sometimes I share with my family and friends or even with my customers. And then it is much easier for me to stick to my plan and follow-through because I have some accountability.

Simplify the rest of my Life

Another tactic that I used to keep my focus on my IDEAL WORKDAY was to simplify some other aspects of my life. I suspended our home renovations until a later time and I kept our schedules simple by ensuring my kids were not over-scheduled and that we were not stretching ourselves too thin. I kept my community and volunteer work to a minimum too. And I didn't feel guilty about this. In fact, this simplified life is now our new normal and it works for us beautifully. 

Revisit My Vision

I devote time periodically to revisit my vision of my IDEAL WORKDAY and check in to see if my time and resources are helping me achieve this. Why so much effort? Because I strongly believe that when we create a workday that fills us up and fits our lives, that we are able to contribute substantially more, and be more profitable in doing so. But there's another reason.

When we create our ideal workday, we become a company that can do that for others. This will help you attract the talent and customers that align with your vision. I know this because this is exactly what I experienced. Building a workday that fits my life has been one of the most important aspects of running a business and a foundation for my success so far. I truly believe there is a new way of working. How we work starts with who we are and what matters most to us. As an entrepreneur, you are empowered to craft your ideal WORKDAY this year. 

Again, the steps I took were:
  • list my priorities for how I want to feel at work
  • use the One Small Change Strategy to make simply, effective changes today
  • make my plan public
  • simplify other areas of my life
  • revisit my vision and adjust plans
Once you start to create your ideal workday examine the difference it makes for you. Entrepreneurs are all about doing things differently. This is your opportunity to LOVE YOUR WORK every single day.

My next post in this series is all about doing your BEST WORK. I can't wait to share it with you. Be sure to follow me on Instagram for a behind-the-scenes look at my business and life. That's where all the fun is!

As a BONUS, I am sharing my WEEKLY MEAL PLANNER with all of you to help you simplify your life. Enjoy!

    Dougal Sutherland, Evaluating and Training Implicit Generative Models with Two-Sample Tests
    Samples from implicit generative models are difficult to judge quantitatively: particularly for images, it is typically easy for humans to identify certain kinds of samples which are very unlikely under the reference distribution, but very difficult for humans to identify when modes are missing, or when types are merely under- or over-represented. This talk will overview different approaches towards evaluating the output of an implicit generative model, with a focus on identifying ways in which the model has failed. Some of these approaches also form the basis for the objective functions of GAN variants which can help avoid some of the issues of stability and mode-dropping in the original GAN.
    Kerrie Mengerson, Probabilistic Modelling in the Real World
    Interest is intensifying in the development and application of Bayesian approaches to estimation of real-world processes using probabilistic models. This presentation will focus on three substantive case studies in which we have been involved: protecting the Great Barrier Reef in Australia from impacts such as crown of thorns starfish and industrial dredging, reducing congestion at international airports, and predicting survival of jaguars in the Peruvian Amazon. Through these examples, we will explore current ideas about Approximate Bayesian Computation, Populations of Models, Bayesian priors and p-values, and Bayesian dynamic networks.

    Sanjeev Arora, Do GANs actually learn the distribution? Some theory and empirics
    The Generative Adversarial Nets or GANs framework (Goodfellow et al'14) for learning distributions differs from older ideas such as autoencoders and deep Boltzmann machines in that it scores the generated distribution using a discriminator net, instead of a perplexity-like calculation. It appears to work well in practice, e.g., the generated images look better than older techniques. But how well do these nets learn the target distribution?
    Our paper 1 (ICML'17) shows GAN training may not have good generalization properties; e.g., training may appear successful but the trained distribution may be far from target distribution in standard metrics. We show theoretically that this can happen even though the 2-person game between discriminator and generator is in near-equilibrium, where the generator appears to have "won" (with respect to natural training objectives).
    Paper2 (arxiv June 26) empirically tests whether this lack of generalization occurs in real-life training. The paper introduces a new quantitative test for diversity of a distribution based upon the famous birthday paradox. This test reveals that distributions learnt by some leading GANs techniques have fairly small support (i.e., suffer from mode collapse), which implies that they are far from the target distribution.
    Paper 1: "Equilibrium and Generalization in GANs" by Arora, Ge, Liang, Ma, Zhang. (ICML 2017)
    Paper 2: "Do GANs actually learn the distribution? An empirical study." by Arora and Zhang (https://arxiv.org/abs/1706.08224)

    Stefano Ermon, Generative Adversarial Imitation Learning
    Consider learning a policy from example expert behavior, without interaction with the expert or access to a reward or cost signal. One approach is to recover the expert’s cost function with inverse reinforcement learning, then compute an optimal policy for that cost function. This approach is indirect and can be slow. In this talk, I will discuss a new generative modeling framework for directly extracting a policy from data, drawing an analogy between imitation learning and generative adversarial networks. I will derive a model-free imitation learning algorithm that obtains significant performance gains over existing methods in imitating complex behaviors in large, high-dimensional environments. Our approach can also be used to infer the latent structure of human demonstrations in an unsupervised way. As an example, I will show a driving application where a model learned from demonstrations is able to both produce different driving styles and accurately anticipate human actions using raw visual inputs.

    Wild Variational Inference with Expressive Variational Families
    Variational inference (VI) provides a powerful tool for reasoning with highly complex probabilistic models in machine learning. The basic idea of VI is to approximate complex target distributions with simpler distributions found by minimizing the KL divergence within some predefined parametric families. A key limitation of the typical VI techniques, however, is that they require the variational family to be simple enough to have tractable likelihood functions, which excludes a broad range of flexible, expressive families such as these defined via implicit models. In this talk, we will discuss a general framework for (wild) variational inference that works for much more expressive, implicitly defined variational families with intractable likelihood functions. Our key idea is to first lift the optimization problem into the infinite dimensional space, solved using nonparametric particle methods, and then project the update back to the finite dimensional parameter space that we want to optimize with. Our framework is highly general and allows us to leverage any existing particle methods as the inference engine for wild variational inference, including MCMC and Stein variational gradient methods.

    • ¿Qué opinas de CrackSLatinos y de su creador (Sr. Ricardo Narvaja)?
    Me parece que ha hecho una labor de continuidad bastante positiva, y ha conseguido mantener una comunidad internacional unida por el mismo idioma. Del modo en que se hizo inicialmente prefiero no opinar. A Ricardo no lo conozco personalmente, ni tampoco he coincidido chateando con él como para tener una idea. Como persona no puedo opinar, pero por el hecho de haber estado ahí haciendo lo que ha hecho de modo altruista ya merece mi más sincero respeto.

    About Patrick

    I got into recreational tree climbing back in 2011.  Since then I have climbed hundreds of trees of all kinds and introduced over a thousand people of all ages to the joys of recreational tree climbing.  I love nature, I love teaching, and I love seeing people overcome their fears and ascend into the magical world of the forest canopy.

    I have led group tree climbs for the NC Museum of Natural Sciences, the NC Botanical Gardens, and for numerous youth groups in North Carolina and Georgia.  In 2014 I helped David Reese, of National Geographic's show "Going Deep with David Reese",  climb a huge Magnolia tree in the front yard of his boyhood home.

    Some of my favorite people to climb trees with are not actually people.  I have rescued more than 120 cats that have been stuck in trees, some 80 feet high and some that have been unable to get down for more than a week!  Intrigued?  Check out the helmet cam videos at rescuemycat.org.

    My formal recreational tree climbing instruction began with Peter Treeman Jenkins of Tree Climbers International in 2011 and includes facilitator training in 2015 with Bill Maher of Tree Trek Exploration.  Click here for my climbing resume.

              Final Bracket Projection        
     Here are all four regions...in ANALOG on a giant yellow poster board. Well, it is analog except that I took digital pics of our work and posted them here! This was a wonderful once-a-week process over the last few weeks with my small children. I think The Bracketboard will be moving more in this direction next year.

    Dayton, Xavier, Tennessee, and BYU sneak IN, while Missouri, Arkansas, Minnesota, Southern Miss and Green Bay are just OUT. I would not be surprised if any of those five popped in place of BYU.

    Also, if you don't want to squint at the analog version, my S-curve can be viewed here. It's a lot neater and cleaner, but includes no Crayola, poster board, kid scissors, geography lessons, bracket-as-art, or the like.







              Bracket Update        
    I mainly work in Lockbox form and it has been updated. But, from here until Sunday, I will post in bracket form as well.

    I did not make any IN/OUT changes since yesterday.





              Newham Mayor Guilty of Breaching Members Code of Conduct         


    Public accountability proceeds, it seems, at its own solemn pace. Newham council's constitution says a standards committee investigation into the conduct of an elected member should take no longer than three months. However, six months has passed since a complaint was made against Mayor Sir Robin Wales, and only now has the committee published its groundbreaking decision - that the Mayor "breached the members' Code of Conduct by failing to treat a member of the public with respect".

    Some background: in July 2014, a video [above] emerged on YouTube showing the Mayor losing control of his temper at the presence of Focus E15 Mothers campaigners at an event in Central Park in East Ham. He was so angry that the footage shows a member of council staff physically restraining him. In the week that followed, a formal complaint was made about the Mayor's behaviour, alleging that Wales had breached the Members' Code of Conduct by failing to observe the statutory principle of “always treating people with respect, including the organisations and public engaged with and those worked alongside”.

    I'd met the young activists from the Focus E15 campaign for the first time only the previous weekend, when volunteering as a legal observer for a march they had organised though the borough. Appalled by the Mayor's behaviour, I gave them some advice soon after the video began to circulate about how to make a official complaint. Eventually I decided to submit a complaint myself and so, ever since, I've had a ring-side seat as the formal 'complainant' to the glacial process that has followed.

    The complaint was about the conduct shown in the video, which was essentially the only evidence. However, after a meeting of Newham's Standards Advisory Committee on 31 July recommended a formal inquiry, an independent investigator was appointed. In August she interviewed me and some of of the campaigners who appear in the footage. The committee did not meet again until early October and then decided set up a Hearing Sub-Committee to consider the investigator's findings and determine whether a breach of the code of conduct had taken place. It met on 21 October and asked the investigator to rewrite her report with new recommendations. A meeting planned for December was cancelled and the Hearing Sub-Committee did not make its final decision until 15 January – but was unable to announce it because the council's constitution insists it was first checked off by its appointed 'Independent Person' (a requirement under the Localism Act 2011).

    The procedure for investigating a complaint is clearly convoluted, slow and in need of reform. I have no idea either how an investigation within three months is even imaginable if evidence is more complex than a short video. I must stress, however, that the independent chair of the Standards Advisory Committee seemed just as frustrated by it as everyone else and was always as helpful as circumstances allowed. What probably hasn't helped was Wales' refusal to cooperate with the formal investigation – to this day, he has not even bothered to deny the accusation against him.

    It is, nevertheless, hard to understand why there was a delay in early October to excise references to “the Mayor’s failure to deny the allegation upon which he chose not to comment at all”, when this rather embarrassing detail appears in minutes released this month. This decision was in all likelihood the work of some of the Mayor's slavishly loyal lieutenants on the committee, but as the discussions were held in secret, it is impossible to know for certain.

    Even before the committee's decision was made, the question of what sanction it might recommend was always, of course, largely irrelevant. It was never likely they would adopt my tongue-in-cheek suggestion of 'anger management classes' and anyway, apart from a letter to Wales with advice on his conduct, which the Hearing Sub-Committee has asked the council's Monitor Officer to write, there are always few options available when a complaint involves an elected Mayor. His unwillingness to engage with or even acknowledge the investigation suggests any advice will disappear straight into the waste basket.

    Nevertheless, what is significant is the decision itself: one of London's most powerful and imperious Labour politicians has received his first slap on the wrist in recent memory. For years, Wales has cultivated the idea that he is completely unassailable and therefore someone whose displeasure people should fear. It has worked too, I've seen it for myself both internally and amongst those who have to deal with the council. Even recently, I've been told by sympathetic insiders of threats that are a variant on “you'll never work in this town again”.

    The trouble is, the notion of Sir Robin Wales' impregnability has been successfully undermined: amongst the many impressive achievements of the wonderful Focus E15 Mothers, this is perhaps the most unlikely, but it's true. It may only represent a first step, but I hope it encourages others in future who believe they have been poorly treated by the Mayor or those surrounding him to feel that it is finally worthwhile making a complaint that someone will listen to.

    Maybe, too, if the Mayor ever decides to bang the table, shout down local people, issue threats or browbeat members of staff, he'll start to wonder whether his words have been secretly recorded, as evidence for a Standards Advisory Committee that has actually displayed some backbone.

              Die Aufnahmen von Rodolfo Biagi mit seinem Orchester 1938 – 1943 in der GoldenEar Edition bei TangoTunes.com        
    Eigentlich … Eigentlich wäre es ja mein Vorsatz gewesen, das Wort Eigentlich nicht mehr so häufig zu verwenden. Aber es ist nun doch anders gekommen. Eigentlich hätte dieser Artikel viel früher (vor Weihnachten) erscheinen sollen. Aber ich bin langsamer geworden (es ist letztlich egal, ob man langsamer nun durch ineffektiver oder zögerlicher ersetzen möchte). Es war einfach zu viel los. Viel Arbeit, viele private Termine, eine ernsthafte Erkrankung in der unmittelbaren Umgebung … so blieb dieser Artikel liegen und die Ideen tummelten sich weiter in meinem Kopf. Aber nun möchte ich doch einmal meine Eindrücke hier in dem vergleichsweise kleinen Kreis der Leserinnen und Leser dieses Blogs vorstellen und erläutern …

    Es war irgendwann im Winter des Jahres 1938. Bei einem Live-Auftritt des Orchesters von Juan d'Arienzo passierte das, was Juan d'Arienzo wohl am meisten fürchtete, sein Pianist Rodolfo Biagi bekam derartig viel Applaus für sein brillantes Spiel des Valses Lágrimas y sonrisas, dass das Publikum anschließend beim Applaudieren erst Ruhe gab, als Biagi sich kurz erhob und verbeugte. Das war zu viel. Biagi wurde von d'Arienzo augenblicklich gefeuert. (Nachzulesen bei Michael Lavocah).

    Wie prominent Rodolfo Biagi inzwischen war, lässt sich nur indirekt am Datum seiner ersten Aufnahme mit neuem Orchester ablesen. Keine zwei Monate nach seiner letzten Aufnahme mit dem Orchesta típica Juan d'Arienzo (Pensalo bien mit dem Sänger Alberto Echagüe; aufgenommen am 22. Juni 1938) stand Rodolfo Biagi am 15. August 1938 mit eigenen Orchester und dem damals berühmten Sänger Teófilo Ibáñez im Studio der Konkurrenz Odeón (d'Arienzo war bei RCA Victor unter Vertrag) und spielte seinen ersten Tango, Gólgota ein.

    Wir können heute nur noch spekulieren: Teófilo Ibáñez war ein sehr erfolgreicher Sänger in den 1930ern; er sang u.a. für Roberto Firpo, Julio de Caro, Osvaldo Fresedo, und für das Orquesta típica Porteña unter der Leitung von Adolfo Carabelli. Vielleicht war die Wahl Biagis für den Posten des Sängers aufgrund des zeitlichen Drucks erfolgt, vielleicht war es auch der berühmte Versuch nichts falsch zu machen. Jedenfalls endete die Zusammenarbeit nach ca. einem halben Jahr und der Sänger Andrés Falgás ersetze ihn (Biagi und er hatten wohl vor 1935 zusammen im Orchester von Juan Canaro musiziert). Auch dieser blieb nur ein gutes halbes Jahr. Dann debütierte Jorge Ortiz mit dem Canaro-Titel ¡Todo te nombra!. Wenn man aufmerksam diese Entwicklung bei Sängern nachzuvollziehen versucht, dann fällt auf, wie sehr die Interpretationsweise von Ortiz mit der Spielweise des Orchesters harmonierte (Ortiz wechselte 1943 kurzfristig zu Miguel Caló - Einzelheiten können in dem Artikel zu den TangoTunes-Transfers von Caló nachgelesen werden - er fand dort wohl nicht in seine Rolle hinein und kehrte 1945 zu Biagi zurück).

    Im Spätherbst letzten Jahres veröffentlichte TangoTunes nun neue Transfers dieser Aufnahmen aus der frühen Phase des Orchesters von Rodolfo Biagi in zwei Paketen innerhalb der „GoldenEar“-Serie. Um es gleich zusammenfassend vorweg zu nehmen: Diese Transfers sind bahnbrechend. Sie schließen die schmerzliche Lücke, die durch die Nicht-Bearbeitung dieses Orchesters beim japanischen Label CTA von Akihito Baba entstanden ist. Die Veröffentlichung enthält die Transfers sämtlicher Aufnahmen zwischen 1938 und 1943 (68 Titel).

    Details zu zwei Titeln

    Für mich eröffnet sich gerade bei den instrumentalen Titeln dieser Pakete eine neue Dimension des Hörens. Das ist höchst erfreulich. Die bisherigen Versionen der Instrumentaltitel aus der Reliquias-CD-Serie von EMI (als Rechtsnachfolgerin des Labels Odeón) sind im Falle Biagis mindestens 10 Jahre alt und das hört man m.E. deutlich. Es waren andere Paradigmen in der Zeit populär und die für die Restauration verfügbare Technik war möglicherweise noch nicht so ausgereift oder sie wurde zumindest noch nicht so konsequent eingesetzt wie heute. Insofern sind die nun veröffentlichten Transfers eine Bereicherung – ganz gleich, ob man es vom Standpunkt des Auflegenden oder des Tanzenden betrachtet. Bei flüchtiger Betrachtung könnte man die Ansicht vertreten, die neu vorgestellten Transfers sind redundant; es gibt diese Titel ja schon auf CD. Dagegen spricht m.E. die „Färbung“ der Transfers der Reliquias-Serie. Anfang des Jahrtausends folgte man offensichtlich der Strategie, Neuveröffentlichungen von Tango-Titeln müssten unbedingt frei von Rauschen bzw. Knistern sein. Das wurde nach meinem Eindruck hauptsächlich über eine entsprechende Verzerrung (mit einem Equalizer wurden entsprechende Frequenzen, die anfällig für Störungen waren, einfach aus dem Spektrum entfernt), zum anderen wurde ein ziemlich hart arbeitendes Gate in den Reproduktionsprozess integriert. Hört man so etwas? Ich finde: Ja, man kann es durchaus hören. Gerade die intensiven Stakkato-Passagen in den Titeln des Orchesters (überwiegend in den instrumentalen Titeln, aber auch in den Vokalaufnahmen zu hören) sind m.E. unmöglich unter der Prämisse einer störungsfreien Reproduktion zu transferieren.

    Bélgica

    Um meine Gedanken und Wahrnehmungen zu verdeutlichen, schreibe ich hier zum Instrumentaltitel Bélgica (eine frühe Komposition von Enrique Delfino). Biagi interpretiert diesen Titel mit einem Feuerwerk von OffBeats, Synkopen und Pausen. Das bringt für mich eine zusätzliche Qualität in die Musik in der Milonga. In derartig geballter Form ist diese Verwendung rhythmischer Besonderheiten m.W. einzigartig. Natürlich ist der typische Geräuschpegel beim Abspielen einer Schellack in den Pausen durchaus hör- bzw. bemerkbar. Bei den Reliquias-Transfers wurde versucht, dieses Rauschen zu minimieren (hörbar ist es immer noch). Aber um welchen Preis? Rückt man dem Knistern mit einem Equalizer zu Leibe (Absenken des Frequenzbereichs von ca. 2 - 6 kHz), so zerstört man das Gesamtgefüge der Instrumentierung. Das Klavierspiel Biagis tritt in den Hintergrund und für meine Ohren entsteht der Eindruck einer fehlenden Balance zwischen den einzelnen Instrumenten des Orchesters. Eine weitere Strategie wäre der Einsatz eines Gates. Ein Gate ist eine Baustein in einer Audio-Reproduktionskette, das ein zusätzliches Absenken von Stellen mit einem Pegel unterhalb eines vorgegebenen Wertes liegen (manchmal wird in der Literatur auch von einem Downward Expander geschrieben). Das Gate regelt das Gain herunter, sobald der Pegel des Signals einen vorgegebenen Wert unterschreitet und regelt wieder hoch, wenn der Pegel des Signals diesen Schwellwert wieder überschreitet. Die Idee klingt verlockend, allerdings ist in der analogen Audiotechnik ein solches Gerät nicht ohne zeitlichen Versatz zu konstruieren. Damit werden unangenehme Regelvorgänge hörbar, die sich bei der Wiedergabe von Stakkato-Passagen (viele Pausen, viele kurze Signale) zu einem „Pumpen“ aufsummieren.

    Außerdem werden die Transienten der Töne der einzelnen Instrumente stark in Mitleidenschaft gezogen. Mit dem Begriff „Transienten“ werden die Signalanteile benannt, die bei akustischen Instrumenten in der Einschwingphase des Tones (also direkt beim Intonieren) entstehen. Der Übergang von Stille zu einem Ton ist ja bei keinem akustischen Instrument ein plötzliches Ereignis, in diesem Übergang kann man ganz viel hören. Wenn ein Bogen die Saite einer Violine streicht, dann ist im Anfang sehr kurz ein vom eigentlichen Ton abweichendes Geräusch zu hören. Bei der Geige kann es ein kurzer Spitzenimpuls oder aber auch ein Krächzen sein, beim Klavier hört man u.U. den Hammer, wie er gegen die entsprechende Saite schlägt. Diese Details sind bei früheren Transfers der Biagi-Titel vollkommen untergegangen und erst jetzt in der TangoTunes Restaurierung zu hören. Warum diese Details auf der eigentlich soliden Restaurationsarbeit der Reliquias-Serie komplett verschwunden sind, kann einerseits durch die Verwendung von bestimmten (aus heutiger Sicht ungeeigneten) Studiogeräten erklärt werden, es kann aber auch sein, dass die Aufnahmen aus stilistischen Gründen nachträglich mit einem Kompressor bearbeitet wurden. Ein Kompressor staucht den Dynamikumfang von Aufnahmen zusammen. Es ist evident, dass durch die Verwendung auch die Transienten in Mitleidenschaft gezogen werden. Hören kann man das beispielsweise an dem kurzen Violinsolo am Ende der ersten Phrase von Bélgica. Bei schlechten Transfers ist es manchmal schwierig, die Instrumente eindeutig zu erkennen. Ich schlage vor, nur einmal die erste Phrase im Vergleich zu hören.
    Leider lässt sich – jedenfalls für mich – nicht eindeutig erkennen, welche Formen der Manipulation bei den entsprechenden Reliquias-Aufnahmen angewendet wurden. Die hier beschriebenen Werkzeuge (Equalizer, Limiter, Gate Kompressor) werden i.A. für diese Aufgaben eingesetzt. Wie es genau gemacht wurde, ist das Geheimnis von EMI.
    Ein kritisches Hören dieser Titel setzt m.E. zwingend eine halbwegs ordentliche Anlage voraus.
    Ungeeignet sind nach meinen Erfahrungen jede Form von Computerlautsprechern
    und die modern gewordenen All-In-One-Kompaktanlagen.

    ¡Todo te nombra!

    Ich möchte noch einen zweiten Kandidaten für ein intensiveres Hören vorstellen. Der oben bereits erwähnte Canaro-Titel, ¡Todo te nombra! war die Premiere von Jorge Ortiz als Sänger des Orchesters. Diesen Titel kenne ich besonders gut, da mit ihm für mich persönlich die eigentliche Reise zu den qualitativ hochwertigen Transfers vor mittlerweile knapp vier Jahren begonnen hat. Seit der Zeit höre ich diesen Titel immer wieder und an den verschiedenen Transfers wird deutlich, wie erfreulich weit inzwischen die Restaurationstechnik gekommen ist. In diesem Titel sind viele charakteristische Passagen des Spiels von Biagi und seinem Orchester zu finden. Wir haben gleich zu Beginn die bereits erwähnten Stakkato-Passagen (Geigen und Bandoneóns spielen in sehr kurzen Tönen eine Rhythmuslinie) aber es finden sich auch lyrische Stellen. Nach einem kurzen Intro stellen die Bandoneóns das lyrische Hauptthema der zweiten Phrase vor, bevor es unter der Federführung der Violinen vom gesamten Orchester wiederholt wird. Wenn man hier genau hinhört, dann beginnen die die Bandoneons zu atmen - anders kann ich es nicht beschreiben. Man hört förmlich die (vielleicht auch manchmal körperlich anstrengende) Handarbeit des Spiels heraus. Ich finde beim vergleichenden Hören wird sehr schnell deutlich, wie sehr die neuen Transfers von TangoTunes den Titeln ihre Seele zurück geben. Man kann Details hören, die bislang völlig überdeckt wurden. Es ist beinahe so, als wäre eine schallschluckende Wolldecke entfernt worden und diese Aufnahmen erstrahlen wieder in ihrer zeitlosen Schönheit.

    Vielleicht ein Testkauf?

    Abschließend möchte ich erneut an dieser Stelle (ähnlich wie bei meinem Artikel zu den Transfers der Titel von Miguel Caló) den Kauf von ein paar ausgewählten Titeln empfehlen. Da kann man beispielsweise einmal ein paar Titel wählen, die man besonders gut kennt und mag. Ich bin mir der sehr begrenzten Reichweite dieses Blogs bewusst, aber auch ich möchte meinen bescheidenen Beitrag zu einer größeren Bekanntheit und weiteren Verbreitung dieses neuen Transfers leisten. Es ist auch total eigennützig - schließlich möchte ich noch weitere hochwertige Restaurationen dieser Musik kaufen und hören – deshalb ist auch eine Bekanntheit dieser Restaurationen m.E. notwendig. Um solche Transfers zu veröffentlichen bedarf es eines enormen Aufwands. Die originalen Schellacks müssen gesucht, gefunden und gekauft werden (und häufig genug sind diese Tonträger im Lauf ihrer Geschichte so stark abgenudelt worden, dass die Suchschleife nicht selten mehrmals durchlaufen werden muss). Anschließend muss nach sorgfältiger Reinigung ein Arbeitstransfer angefertigt werden, der die Grundlage für den endgültigen Transfer bildet. Jetzt werden die Parameter der finalen Überspielung festgelegt (Abspielgeschwindigkeit, Entzerrung usw.). Und schließlich wird die endgültige Überspielung durchgeführt. Die Informationen werden zusammengesucht (von den offensichtlichen allgemein bekannten Informationen in den ID3-Tags bis hin zum Foto des Etiketts der Schellack). Und die verschiedenen Versionen für die unterschiedlichen Pakete werden konvertiert (AIFF, FLAC). Ein solcher Prozess verschlingt viel Zeit und Geld und deshalb braucht es einen breiten Markt. TangoTunes wird nicht dauerhaft nur von den Tango-DJs leben können (und wie viele Tango-DJs kaufen überhaupt bei TangoTunes ein, ich höre jedenfalls immer noch viel zu häufig DJs, die mit schlechten Transfers arbeiten). Ich denke, auch die breite Masse der Tango-Liebhaber sollte sich ernsthaft überlegen, zumindest Teile des restaurierten Repertoires zu beschaffen. Und weil dieser Artikel ursprünglich vor Weihnachten erscheinen sollte, empfehle ich hier gerne noch einmal die Gutschein-Option: Man kann auch einfach mal im Tango-Umfeld solche Kostbarkeiten verschenken. Dazu gibt es die Möglichkeit, bei TangoTunes Geschenk-Gutscheine zu erwerben.

    Es gibt noch so viele schmerzhafte Lücken im Kernrepertoire, so dass die Arbeit von TangoTunes noch lange nicht abgeschlossen ist. Bei d'Arienzo fehlen beispielsweise die Aufnahmen mit Mauré, die momentan erhältlichen Transfers mit Aníbal Troilo aus der ersten Hälfte der 40er hinken weit hinter dem technisch Möglichen hinterher, Carlos di Sarli ist mit seinen Aufnahmen aus den frühen 40ern überwiegend auch nur in alten Transfers zu hören (die entsprechenden CTAs sind längst vergriffen) und Enrique Rodriguez fehlt bei CTA komplett (das sind nur einige Beispiele – die Liste ließe sich beinahe beliebig verlängern). All diese Restaurationen erfordern einen immensen logistischen und finanziellen Aufwand und der rechtfertigt sich nur, wenn auch ein zahlender Markt mit Konsumenten bereit ist, diese Produkte zu kaufen. Darf ich daran erinnern, dass nahezu alle CD-Serien mit traditioneller Tangomusik nicht weiter fortgeführt werden? Die hier mehrfach erwähnte EMI-Reliquias-Serie ist eingestellt. BMG (als rechtliche Nachfolgerin des zweiten großen Labels der damaligen Zeit: RCA-Victor) hat schon längst die Neuveröffentlichung von Titel in der Serie „20 Temas“ aufgegeben. Vor 2 Jahren hat das argentinische Label Euro-Records auf die weiter Veröffentlichung von Titeln innerhalb der „Coleccion 78 RPM“ verzichtet und bei den japanischen Labels sieht es auch nicht besser aus. Es würde mich sehr wundern, wenn neue CDs aus dem Re
