In yesterday’s proceedings in court, the prosecution adopted arguments so stark and apparently unreasonable I have been fretting on how to write them up in a way that does not seem like caricature or unfair exaggeration on my part. What has been happening in this court has long moved beyond caricature. All I can do is give you my personal assurance that what I recount actually is what happened.

As usual, I shall deal with procedural matters and Julian’s treatment first, before getting in to a clear account of the legal arguments made.

Сьогодні о 16:30 у Малиновському районному суді міста Одеси відбудеться судове засідання у справі «Українського Кіберальянсу». Усіх одеситів, яких обурив тиск СБУ та МВС на українських кіберактивістів, у незалежності від партійних поглядів, запрошуємо до будівлі суду. Ваша підтримка буде важливою.

Місто Одеса, Малиновский районний суд, вул. Василя Стуса, 1а. Справа номер 521/3121/20, слідчий суддя – Корой Віктор Дмитрович. Час – 16:30.

Активісти Кіберальянсу за роки роботи відзначились зламом сайту Міноборони РФ, Першого каналу, електронних пошт терористів з ОРДЛО Мозгового та Мотороли (Павлова), які успішно зберігають режим тиші.

Головна мета УКА - допомога у розвитку кібербезпеки України. Що неодноразово було доведено тісною співпрацею з державними органами.

Ці обшуки і незаконно вилучене обладнання дуже нагадує одну дикунську країну, з якою ми маємо нещастя бути сусідами. Тож зараз важливо максимально висвітлювати подібні події, аби не дати квітнути беззаконню та свавіллю, бо ми маємо жити у цивілізованій, правовій країні.

13379015_original.jpg...это регулярное смазывание ануса маслом фиалки душистой перед сном. Ватный шарик необходимо смочить в масле фиалки и обильно смазать им место, из которого исходят злые духи.

Такие рекомендации обнародовал Аятолла Табризян из священного иранского города Кум.

Оздоровительный эффект фиалкового масла можно усилить, если есть больше коричневого сахара, окуривать помещения дымом адраспана (могильника обыкновенного) и вдыхать нюхательный табак. Кроме того, масло фиалки душистой помогает от синдрома Дауна, ринита, скопления слизи в горле и увеличивает объём мозга.

Западную медицину аятолла Табризян публично осудил как «неисламскую».

Five times today you laughed at my accent.

Yesterday, it was three.

And I rolled my eyes as you rolled your R’s in exaggeration, laughter dancing in your eyes.

And even though I said “fuck you,” we both know I meant “thank you.”

For the reminder.

That my father stumbles on his words too but with him, there is no humor.

That his back still aches from days long spent in labor so that at the age of seven, they could try to correct my pronunciation in the classroom.

A reminder that I will not forget the redness in my mother’s cheeks as she grew with embarrassment for not knowing how to respond at my parent teacher conferences.

The accent that slips from my tongue those three, five, 10 times a day is a slap to my wrist when I begin to lose sight of my roots.

The roots buried so deep in me that grew stronger every time Papi would hang up my report card, A’s lined up like soldiers.

Roots wiggling at my toes every time my mother flinches at my broken Spanish.

And she didn’t see that I heard it too and my heart bruised like fallen mangos.

That’s why my culture is not that taco truck on 3rd Street.

It’s not poorly mimicked salsa dances while your buddies clutch their stomachs in laughter.

She looks like me. Knots and curls and wild brown eyes.

She looks like hips swaying to roses laughing and opening up in Spring.

She looks like Spaniard sand and Indio clay.

Like sun-kissed lips humming Spanish lullabies through muddy eyes.

My accent is my reminder that I am not rooted to this land, even though my parents cheer for Team USA.

My accent is my tongue dipping itself into sweet spices and exotic juices of our ancestor’s harvest.

My accent is not there often, but it’s damn sure not something I hide behind closed palms to my mouth.

On the contrary, when you’ve laughed at me for the fifth time today, it’s a tally mark of how many giggles you can get out of me.

A tally mark of indentations to my memory.

You laugh.

I thank you.

Because I am grateful that my mouth is still bursting with memories.

Contagion

As true crime grows in popularity I sometimes stumble across people on the internet having the conversation that every true crime and horror fan has had with themselves from a young age: why are we attracted to the things that scare us? If violence from men is such a real danger for women, why do they consume podcasts about serial killers who do the exact thing they’re so afraid of? I like to tell people it’s fun to test the waters. I want to be able to think about my fears and experience them in a safe environment. When I’m driving in my car a true crime podcast might send a shiver down my spine, but the subject is usually far away, locked up or dead.

Whenever I go on vacation I like to pick up one of those “ghost stories of ____” books at a tourist stop. They have them everywhere, if you look. They’re usually short, easy to read books that go over the history and local legends of wherever you’re visiting. It’s fun to kind of add a creep filter to the vacation, something you can turn on and off when you’re sightseeing and you want to see what the place has meant to different people through the years. When I visited New Orleans I watched The Skeleton Key, when I stayed in northern California I read The Girls, and as I made my way to a little town in Iowa to stay in a haunted axe murder house, I reread Stephen King’s nearly perfect short story, The Children of the Corn.

Contagion

It occurred to me when I was shopping for medical masks following a lot of hand-wringing about coronavirus during the democratic primary debate that it would be an excellent time to rewatch one of my favorite pandemic movies (see also: World War Z) Contagion.

In case you missed it, Contagion is a 2011 movie with a star studded cast that shows a fictional version of what could happen during a global pandemic. Lots of people die. Lots of people panic. Some people profit off of the chaos. Desperate people become violent. In only a few weeks, the world we know slips away and is replaced by a more brutal one where people will do what it takes to survive.

I’m not alone in craving a rewatch. Contagion has been sitting at the top of Amazon’s “most popular” rental videos for a month now, goading people to lean into their fears instead of stuffing them down. You can rent the movie and stock up on flu supplies and face masks at the same time.

Contagion

To be clear, this proposal is meant to be a little bit silly. I love being scared, especially when the threat is something I could later on deal with in real life. If you’re a germophobe or your anxiety is already running away with thoughts of a global pandemic, maybe do some self care and decide not to listen to this suggestion. You don’t have to do everything you read about online. But if you’re a horror fan and you need to blow off some steam after reading coronavirus headlines, watching Contagion is a good way to spin the release valve on your anxiety and stress.

We are far away from the fictional super virus the film depicts which infects one in twelve people worldwide, killing a quarter of them. For people like me, seeing the worst case scenario is a helpful way to put the present in context. My brain is going to go there whether I want it to or not, so I may as well let it happen and then use it as a way to fact-check my own worrying.

Contagion is available for rent on Amazon and YouTube.

Лица китайских врачей, которые находятся в эпицентре эпидемии.

13378131_original.jpg

Чтобы не заразиться, врачам приходится практически постоянно носить защитные костюмы, очки и маски. В результате на их лицах остаются вот такие следы от "обмундирования", а после смен, которые бесконечно идут одна за другой, эти следы превращаются в синяки и ссадины.

Времени на перерывы практически нет и врачи короткие минуты отдыха проводят прямо на рабочих местах, используя в качестве постели офисные стулья, пол, столы и т.д.

13378373_original.jpg

У врачей слишком мало времени на отдых, не говоря уже о возможности нормально поесть или сходить в туалет. тем более, что одевание-раздевание защитных костюмов - процесс не простой. Некоторые даже используют подгузники для взрослых, чтобы сэкономить время.

Многим девушкам пришлось обрезать длинные волосы, так как короткая стрижка обеспечивает лучшее прилегание шапочек и масок. К тому же с перегруженным графиком у медперсонала нет времени на регулярное мытье головы.

Еще одна проблема --- громоздкие защитные костюмы делают человека совершенно неузнаваемым. Но и тут нашли простой выход - прямо на костюме пишут имена врачей, чтобы облегчить их идентификацию.

Два программиста сгенерировали «все возможные» мелодии, защитили авторским правом и сделали «общественным достоянием».

30 января на YouTube-канале конференции TEDx опубликовали выступление юриста в сфере технологий Дамьена Риля (Damien Riehl). Он рассказал, как с напарником Ноа Рубиным (Noah Rubin) решил остановить судебные тяжбы музыкантов из-за авторских прав, которые «душат творчество и свободу».



Часто музыканты судятся из-за того, что музыка в их песнях похожа частями или отдельными наборами нот. По мнению Риля, в таких ситуациях есть место не только для умышленной кражи, но и для «ограниченных математических уравнений» — всегда есть шанс, что артисты придумали две похожие мелодии независимо друг от друга. По мнению программистов, именно от таких разбирательств они и хотят спасти музыкантов.

Риль и Рубин разработали алгоритм, который записал все возможные комбинации из восьми нот и 12 тактов. По сути, они использовали тактику брутфорса, перебирая все комбинации до единой. По словам разработчиков, алгоритм генерировал 300 тысяч мелодий в секунду, а всего мелодий получилось 68 миллиардов. Авторы проекта опубликовали все мелодии под лицензией Creative Commons Zero, предусматривающей отказ от авторских прав. Как отмечает издание Vice, это самый простой способ сделать что-то фактически «общественным достоянием». К этому программисты и стремились — все свои наработки они опубликовали на Github.

Пока нельзя сказать, сработает ли это во время будущих судебных разбирательств из-за музыки. Также неизвестно, попали ли в сгенерированные комбинации уже созданные и защищённые авторскими правами мелодии. Но Риль и Рубин настроены по этому поводу оптимистично.

SHOW NOTES

  • What is Josh’s history with chess Grandmaster Maurice Ashley, and how have their shared and individual ideas about assumptions and shared constructs changed in the past 20 years? [04:45]
  • How Josh’s approach to learning differs from his friend and fellow athlete Dan Caulfield. [10:16]
  • What is foil boarding, and how does it overcome the conditions that restrict traditional surfing in a way that makes it a metaphor for Josh’s relationship to learning? [11:38]
  • eFoiling, one-wheeling, and the importance of learning how to fall safely. [13:14]
  • Foils and boils: practicing the art of falling from a practical vs. an Instagram-ready standpoint. [15:37]
  • How volunteering to care for people going through difficult psychedelic experiences at a music festival was my version of learning to navigate boils. In both cases, we’re really practicing the ability to be comfortable around extraordinary circumstances in order to fully experience what follows. [18:49]
  • How designing a learning process around the meta can build skills applicable to countless circumstances — and why an observer with a lifetime of surfing under their belt might consider Josh’s approach to learning the craft odd. [22:16]
  • The benefits of being a beginner. [26:10]
  • Josh says: “The internal spirit is the teacher or myself 20 years from now.” What does he mean by this? [32:44]
  • What young Tim once learned from talking to an old Tim at a ski lodge fireside, and why asking for advice from another version of one’s self is a worthwhile thought exercise. [36:02]
  • A short retelling of the time Josh almost died doing Wif Hof breathing in a swimming pool, how surviving the event inspired the way he and his family live now. [39:58]
  • Writing exercises that have gotten me in the mindset — without putting myself in actual danger — to make decisions under the weight of imminent mortality. [42:02]
  • “Firewalking” with Josh: How to physiologically embody something we’re trying to learn in a way that mere observation can’t instill. [43:38]
  • The importance of feedback loops and the game-changing difference it can make to have them on tap in unlimited, accurate doses. Can Josh tell me about the feedback loops he consults in his own life without referring to foiling in some capacity? When might he not want to reflect on the scrutiny of a feedback loop? [46:59]
  • When a coach or trainer’s feedback might be counterproductive. [53:39]
  • As someone who isolates himself by design except for interactions with employees, family, and friends and doesn’t rely on social media, how does Josh stress-test the integrity of his own thinking and positions? [55:10]
  • To separate the wheat from the chaffe of your ideas, cultivate a close ecosystem of people you can trust to be honest with you in their pushback — or a partner whose thought processes complement rather than compliment your own. [58:54]
  • Examining the confidence that Josh describes as being “a little bit crazy and messianic” in the character of many high-acheivers who seem to chart a record of success regardless of the opinion of their lessers — like nine-time BJJ World Champion Marcelo Garcia. [1:00:24]
  • The unexpected rewards of approaching skill acquisition in an unorthodox way: when Josh and Dan’s eFoil training translated to foil as they expected — and as none of the “experts” would have. [1:03:37]
  • I offer some pushback on the point that Josh would have rejected the notion of that translation if he had stress-tested it. [1:05:17]
  • Reps hidden in plain sight. [1:05:46]
  • In what other arts — chess, BJJ, push hands, or investing — might reps be similarly hidden in plain sight or lend themselves to deliberate practice? [1:07:30]
  • Conceptual or thematic reps hidden in plain sight. [1:09:02]
  • Of course Josh’s method of teaching my girlfriend and me how to surf flies in the face of how most instructors would do it. I think it also happens to be right — and in line with the empathetic methods of another exceptional coach I know, Kelly Starrett. [1:10:04]
  • Who is Robert Kegan, and why is he interesting to Josh? [1:15:29]
  • Parting thoughts. [1:18:35]

КМІС щойно оприлюднив результати опитування населення з 21 по 25 лютого 2020 року, і там рейтинг підтримки чинної влади продовжує стрімко летіти вниз.

13376879_original.jpg

Найцікавіше:

Оцінка дій президента України порівняно з груднем в лютому погіршилася: на 15 відсоткових пунктів стало менше тих, хто схвалює його роботу (з 62% до 47%), і на 15 відсоткових пунктів зросла частка тих, хто не схвалює (з 25% до 40%).

13377056_original.jpg

Оцінка дій Кабінету міністрів порівняно з груднем в лютому погіршилася: на 14 відсоткових пунктів стало менше тих, хто схвалює його роботу (з 35% до 21%), і на 20 відсоткових пунктів зросла частка тих, хто не схвалює (з 46% до 66%).

13377420_original.jpg

Оцінка дій Верховної Ради порівняно з груднем в лютому погіршилася: на 16 відсоткових пунктів стало менше тих, хто схвалює її роботу (з 35% до 19%), і на 21 відсотковий пункт зросла частка тих, хто не схвалює (з 49% до 70%).

13377727_original.jpg

В оцінці успішності влади у справі вирішення конфлікту на Донбасі відбулося погіршення порівняно з груднем: тільки 25% опитаних думають, що влада успішна (у грудні було 40%), а 70% - що не успішна (у грудні було 50%).

Боротьба з корупцією на вищих щаблях владі неуспішна: так думають 83% учасників дослідження (у грудні було 76%), бачать успіх 12% (у грудні було 17%).

Більшість українців не бачить просування в розслідуванні резонансних кримінальних справ: так вважають 80% у лютому (у грудні було 71%), відзначають успіх тільки 11% (у грудні було 17%).

80% респондентів не бачать успіхів нової влади у справі зниження тарифів ЖКГ, 14% - бачать. У порівнянні з груднем оцінки стали гіршими.

Майже половина опитаних (46%) сказали, що їхні витрати на оплату послуг ЖКГ у січні 2020 року зросли порівняно з січнем 2019 року. У 39% респондентів ці витрати не змінилися або зменшилися.

21% учасників дослідження вказали, що витрачають на оплату послуг ЖКГ більше половини доходу сім'ї. Ця частка зросла порівняно з опитуваннями КМІС листопада-грудня минулого року (тоді було 14% і 16% відповідно). Якщо порівняти результати цього дослідження з опитування КМІС, проведеним в 2015 році на замовлення Фонду Фрідріха Еберта , то за 4 роки частка тих домогосподарств, які витрачають більше половини доходу на комунальні послуги, зросла більш, ніж втричі – з 6% до 21%.
