Designing private house is all about designing the life of family members. We need to fully understand their life styles. For this project, after several meeting, we made stories for each members of family at their side. and, after all of them agreed with this architect’s imagination, we started to draw in paper finally. There is not much our philosophy and style in this project, but mostly interaction and mutual understanding.Save this picture!Program DiagramThis house is located in the middle of private house community. Even though, it is at the beginning of uphill, the land is almost flat. Actually mostly private houses are facing front yard which is not so wide, so it made people to lock themselves from inside: shutting all the curtains, and cannot really go out the the frontyard. how inconvenient…. before they wear properly, they cannot really go out the frontyard.Save this picture!Courtesy of Design GuildWe installed courtyard in the middle of house, for the better privacy. They don’t need to shut the curtains, they don’t need to care about people passing by. They can have breakfast at the courtyard with pajama at the courtyard.

‘Croatian Messi’ Alen Halilovic turns heads in Luis Enrique’s Barcelona debut

first_img1 The first fixture of the pre-season is always a strange one for FC Barcelona. The majority of the early summer squads tend to be made up of fringe and youth players, and the high concentration of Camp Nou stars participating at the World Cup has only further depleted the list of first team regulars available for duty this week.A golden opportunity was handed to the youngsters participating in Luis Enrique’s debut game in charge of the Barcelona seniors therefore, and while the 1-0 Catalan victory over Recreativo was discreet in many ways, a few players stood out above the rest. None more so than Alen Halilovic, who in 45 minutes showed enough to suggest he’s likely to outgrow Barcelona B sooner rather than later.Though barely 18-years-old, competition was fierce for Alen Halilovic’s signature when he made the decision to leave Dinamo Zagreb earlier this year. With more than 50 first team games under his belt, the playmaker’s reputation was significant enough to suggest he would join one of the bigger sides in Europe, but in opting for the Camp Nou in March, the youngster showed vision beyond his years. There is an endless list of developing talents tempted by big money contracts from major European clubs who ultimately do little more than hoover up players en-masse only to disregard them at a later date, but Halilovic’s move to Barcelona looks much more calculated. Not only do the Catalans have an excellent record of developing youngsters into the finished article, capable of either playing for their first team or at the top level elsewhere, but their deal for the Croatian also included the requirement that he should play first with Barcelona B, before being promoted to the seniors at the club’s discretion.Whoever advises Halilovic is advising him well, a refreshing turn of events in this day and age. By starting with Barcelona B, the Croatian can acclimatise to both the demands of Spanish football and the demands of Barcelona’s system, with the latter being a sticking point even for experienced senior players at a much more advanced stage in their career than the 18-year-old. If and when he outgrows the Liga Adelante, he will be promoted to the Barcelona senior squad, armed with the understanding necessary to give establishing himself in the first team a genuine shot. Halilovic’s showing in Huelva suggests that opportunity will arrive, provided he applies himself.From the start the playmaker was bright. Confident and willing to take players on, he frequently attempted dribbles and rarely lost the ball, happy to receive under pressure then either beat his marker or pick out a team mate with a well-weighted pass. His movement off the ball, equally, was excellent, showing an understanding of both where his companions were placed and where he needed to move accordingly, something that must largely have come from natural intuition given the Croatian has spent little time training as a Barcelona player. The youngster even managed to provide a rare goal threat in a first half featuring sparse opportunities in that regard.He may only have lasted 45 minutes, but it was enough for both Catalan radio and social media to light up in appreciation of the new signing. More than one commentator even compared his dribbling to a young Lionel Messi, and while that’s symptomatic of our desire to relate footballers to others of a much greater stature without genuine justification (Halilovic has previously been labelled ‘the Croatian Messi’ despite the obvious disparity in level), it is true that the Croatian’s talent for both shielding and manipulating the ball at pace is a rarity even at Barcelona.It’s early days, and time will tell if Halilovic really has what it takes to make the leap up and become a Barcelona regular. Great dribbling in a pre-season game is one thing, but learning the patience required to play in an attacking position for the Blaugrana – where it’s often about choosing not to do something and waiting for the perfect opportunity rather than forcing the issue – is another. Encouragingly, the playmaker has already shown signs which indicate he has the capacity to learn what is necessary to adapt to the Camp Nou, and if he can make the most of a privileged education with the B team, both the player and his new club could benefit immeasurably in the near future. Luis Enrique was impressed by Alen Halilovic in his Barcelona debut, but keen to avoid unrealistic expectations of the youngster last_img read more

Earth Myths with a Sprinkling of Data

first_img(Visited 42 times, 1 visits today)FacebookTwitterPinterestSave分享0 Some recent articles show that tiny bits of data can be used to generate whoppers.According to Live Science, Bill Hammond has been measuring uplift of the Sierra Nevada range since 2000.  Currently they have measured about a millimeter or two of uplift a year for less than 12 years.  Launching from that, the article stated:The amount might seem small, but the data indicate that long-term trends in crustal uplift suggest the modern Sierra could be formed in less than 3 million years, which is relatively quick when compared to estimates using some geological techniques.This represents an extrapolation of five orders of magnitude (stretching 12 years of data to “suggest” what happened in 3 million years).  Nevertheless, they are convinced they have determined a “young” uplift for the California mountain range (see also PhysOrg).  Despite the bold announcements, Hammond said, “he Sierra Nevada uplift process is fairly unique on Earth and not well understood.” Whether “unique” phenomena can be used to inform laws of nature was not explained.Even more hubris was displayed in another article, “Earth history and evolution,” on PhysOrg.  The opening paragraph is the operative statement about mythology referred to in our title:In classical mythology, the cypress tree is associated with death, the underworld and eternity. Indeed, the family to which cypresses belong, is an ancient lineage of conifers, and a new study of their evolution affords a unique insight into a turbulent era in the Earth’s history.This article claimed that genetic data between several genera of cypress thought to have evolved independently after a mythical supercontinent, Pangea, split apart, has “revolutionized the field of biogeography” and given us “understanding” of earth history.The new study confirms that cypresses represent a very old plant family. Their origins can be traced back to Pangea, and the evolutionary divergence of the northern and southern subfamilies of cypresses actually reflects the break-up of Pangea about 153 million years ago. As fragmentation progressed and ancestral lineages were separated from each other, new lineages were established and followed separate evolutionary trajectories. The Cupressaceae is the first plant family whose evolutionary history gives us such a detailed picture of the break-up of a supercontinent.This adds another couple of orders of magnitude to the extrapolations from data evaluated in the present (see PNAS paper for the data used).  The “insight” generated comes with some caveats, however.  “Some groups have turned out to be surprisingly young in evolutionary terms, others much older than people had assumed.”  It appears that using assumptions about a law of nature concerning evolutionary rates requires sacrificing laws of nature in other aspects of the story.Myths usually require sacrifices, so we should not be surprised.Let’s take stock of what we know (or think we know) based on the data presented.  (1) The Sierras have risen 1 or 2 millimeters per year since 2000, give or take the uncertainties that always need to be factored into any measurement.  (2) Certain selected genes in certain selected species of cypress have a measurable percent difference, give or take the uncertainties that always need to be factored into any measurement.That’s it.  The rest is interpretation.Are you better off with modern mythology than the Greeks and Romans were?  The fighting gods of classical lore have been lumped into a new god named Evolution that performs whatever miracles are necessary to keep the myth going.  We are told “new lineages were established”.  By whom?  Evolution, the god of death, the underworld and eternity.  Evolution weaves tales of “turbulent eras in earth history” when he fought the Earth Giants, splitting continents and sending the spirits of Life Force on separate evolutionary trajectories.  We don’t see Evolution, but through his oracles, we gain “understanding”.  We envision “detailed pictures”.  We achieve “unique insight”.Any mythmaker needs a sprinkling of data to keep the outsiders in awe.   The priest of Delphi used gas from a cave to send the priestesses into ecstatic babblings.  Now, GPS (gas of the priestesses of science) does the trick, while another group of divination prophets looks into the genes, like ancient Babble-onians looked into entrails.We know what they tell us is mythology because each new understanding overturns the previous understanding (implying it was never understanding in the first place).  We also keep seeing that the new data contradicts the findings from the gas the previous oracle used.  We also know it’s bunk because the interpreters (the university press departments), translate the incomprehensible babblings into ambiguous pronouncements that can be interpreted various ways. Does evolution run fast or slow?  It depends.  Are the Sierras rising fast or slow?  It depends.  [Scientific principle:  Mathematical physics does not permit the extrapolation of a linear function over five orders of magnitude.  That’s like drawing a mile-long curve from an inch of data.]Old King Croesus would have had equal luck listening to modern scientists tell him whether to go to war with Darius as we have trusting in the “understanding” we get from the priests of Darwinius.  Don’t myth-take this for science.  The rubric of their hubris is rootless.last_img read more

Team South Africa 5th in New Delhi

first_img15 October 2010Team South Africa finished fifth in the overall medals standings at the 2010 Commonwealth Games in New Delhi, India, capturing 33 medals in total, including 12 golds, with the country’s swimmers leading the way.“Team South Africa’s performance has inspired millions of our citizens, most especially our youth, to endeavour to become champions,” South African President Jacob Zuma said after the closing of the Games on Thursday.“We call upon all South Africans to give our team a rousing welcome on their return. Well done. Halala!”Australia topped the medals table, as they did four years ago on home soil, winning 74 gold medals (177 in total), followed by hosts India with 38 golds (101 in total), England with 37 golds (142 in total), and Canada with 26 golds (75 in total).Kenya, Malaysia, Singapore and Nigeria finished close behind South Africa. Malaysia and Nigeria both won 35 medals in total – two more than South Africa, but with fewer golds, placing them below South Africa in the overall standings.South Africa’s medals tally was slightly down compared to Melbourne four years ago, when the country won 12 golds, 13 silvers, and 13 bronzes for a total of 38 and the same fifth place overall.This could be attributed to the fact that Team South Africa was considerably smaller in Delhi than it was Down Under.In addition, a number of athletes considered strong medal prospects – long jumper Khotso Mokoena, and 800 metres world champions Mbulaeni Mulaudzi and Caster Semenya – missed the Games through injury.Swimming strengthSwimming was clearly South Africa’s strength in New Delhi. Three swimmers won at least two gold medals and 16 of Team South Africa’s medals were won in the pool.Natalie du Toit captured three titles in the women’s S9 category, winning the 50 and 100 metres freestyle and the 100 metres butterfly. Cameron van der Burgh shone with the 50 and 100 metres double in the breaststroke, and Chad le Clos emerged as a star.The teenager from Durban raced to victory in 200 metres butterfly and the 4 by 100 metres individual medley, which he won in a Commonwealth Games record time. He also won a silver medal in the 4 by 100 medley relay and a bronze medal in the 4 by 200 freestyle.Like le Clos, Van der Burgh added a silver medal to his tally in the medley relay. The success of South Africa in the relays was testament to the strength of the country’s swimmers, but a generally-held perception among leading swimming coaches was that the country could have won more medals had a bigger team been sent to India.Certainly, based on the times recorded in Delhi, and the times some of those who missed out have previously swum, there was validity in the coaches’ argument.Further, there is a belief among the coaches that the South African Sports Confederation and Olympic Committee (Sascoc) needs to invest even more in the country’s swimmers ahead of the 2012 London Olympic Games; it appears that South Africa’s best medal chances will be in the pool, viewed in the context of the country’s performances in India.Eleven Commonwealth Games medalsRoland Schoeman, although not an individual champion, won a silver medal in the 50 metres freestyle and a further two bronze medals to take his Commonwealth Games career haul to 11 medals.It was also encouraging to see South Africans excelling in long-distance events: Wendy Trott won a silver medal in the women’s 800 freestyle and Heerden Herman picked up silver in the men’s 1 500 freestyle.BowlsBowls, a non-Olympic sport, continued to be one of South Africa’s strengths, with three gold medals being won.Tracy-Lee Botha, Susan Nel, and Susanna Steyn secured victory for the women’s trips, while their male counterparts – Gideon Vermeulen, Johan Du Plessis, and Wayne Perry – were also crowned champions. Shaun Addinall and Gerry Baker combined to win the men’s pairs with a stunning showing in the final.WrestlingThe other sport in which South Africa stood out was wrestling, which was a welcome boost after it wasn’t held in Melbourne in 2006.A total of five medals were won by South Africans, including two silvers by Richard Addinall in the men’s 74-kilogram Greco-Roman and freestyle divisions.There were further silvers for Bella-Lufa Hughes (96 kilograms Greco-Roman) and Heinrich Barnes (66 kilograms freestyle). Dean van Zyl added a bronze medal in the 84 kilograms freestyle competition.ArcheryArchery, like wrestling, produced smiles for Team South Africa. The men’s compound team picked up a bronze medal after narrowly missing out on competing for gold.Later, Septimus Cilliers claimed another bronze in the individual compound competition, defeating New Zealand’s Shaun Teasdale, ranked number one in the Commonwealth heading into Delhi, for the medal.AthleticsThrowers won three of South Africa’s five medals in athletics, but it was a disappointingly small team that took part in track and field.Chris Harmse, the dominant force in men’s hammer throwing in South Africa for well over a decade, won gold, having twice previously finished with a bronze medal, in 1998 and 2006.Sunette Viljoen lived up to expectations when she threw a Commonwealth record 62.34 metres to win the women’s javelin, and Justine Robbeson added further lustre to South Africa’s performance in the event by claiming the bronze medal.LJ van Zyl put in a mighty effort to defend the 400 metres hurdles he had won in Melbourne, but had to settle for second and silver.In para-athletics, Samkelo Radebe raced to silver in the T 46 100 metres.More medalsMedals were won in two other sports: gymnast Jennifer Khwela picked up a silver in the women’s vault, and the Sevens rugby team won bronze after edging England 17-14 in the playoff for third.M E D A L SGOLDSwimmingChad le Clos (men’s 200m butterfly) Chad le Clos (400m individual medley) Natalie du Toit (women’s S9 50m freestyle) Natalie du Toit (S9 100m freestyle) Natalie du Toit (S9 100m butterfly) Cameron van der Burgh (men’s 100m breaststroke) Cameron van der Burgh (50m breaststroke)AthleticsChris Harmse (mens hammer) Sunette Viljoen (womens javelin)BowlsWomen’s trips (Tracy-Lee Botha, Susan Nel, Susanna Steyn) Men’s trips (Gideon Vermeulen, Johan Du Plessis, Wayne Perry) Men’s pairs (Shaun Addinall, Gerry Baker)SILVERWrestlingRichard Addinall (men’s 74kg, Greco-Roman) Richard Addinall (men’s 74kg, freestyle) Bella-Lufa Hughes (96kg Greco-Roman) Heinrich Barnes (66kg freestyle)SwimmingWendy Trott (women’s 800m freestyle) Roland Schoeman (men’s 50m freestyle) Heerden Herman (men’s 1500m freestyle) 4x100m medley (Charl Crous, Cameron van der Burgh, Chad le Clos, Gideon Louw)GymnasticsJennifer Khwela (vault)Para AthleticsSamkelo Radebe (men’s 100m)AthleticsLJ van Zyl (men’s 400m hurdles)BRONZESwimmingMens 4x100m freestyle (Graeme Moore, Gideon Louw, Roland Schoeman, Darian Townsend) Men’s 4x200m freestyle (Jean Basson, Darien Townsend, Jasper Venter, Chad Le Clos) Roland Schoeman (50m butterfly) Riaan Schoeman (4×100 individual medley) Gideon Louw (men’s 50m freestyle)WrestlingDean van Zyl (84kg freestyle)ArcheryMen’s Team Compound (Septimus Cilliers, Nico Benade, Kobus de Wet) Septimus Cilliers (Individual compound)AthleticsJustine Robbeson (women’s javelin)Sevens RugbyMEDAL TABLEAustralia 74 55 48 177India 38 27 38 101England 37 59 46 142Canada 26 17 32 75South Africa 12 11 10 33Kenya 12 11 9 32Malaysia 12 10 13 35Singapore 11 11 9 31Nigeria 11 10 14 35Would you like to use this article in your publication or on your website?

Neil Young’s Anti-MP3 Crusade Gets Real

first_img5 Outdoor Activities for Beating Office Burnout Tags:#music#web john paul titlow 12 Unique Gifts for the Hard-to-Shop-for People… 9 Books That Make Perfect Gifts for Industry Ex…center_img 4 Keys to a Kid-Safe App Related Posts For years, Neil Young has waged a rhetorical war on digital audio formats such as MP3. Lambasting their diminished sonic quality, the rock icon has advocated the development of a new high-resolution format more sonically akin to the analog sources of yesteryear. Now, after years of complaining, Young is turning his gripes in action.During a taping of the Late Show with David Letterman last week, Young showed off a prototype of Pono, a forthcoming portable music player that plays files in a format with the same name. The project has won the attention and praise of many within the music industry, according to a recent article in Rolling Stone. By definition, MP3 files are of lower quality than audio files stored on recording studio hard drives. Storing those original, gigabyte-scale files on a portable player simply isn’t practical, so instead we store data-reduced (a.k.a compressed or lossy) versions. When we stream from places like Spotify, SoundCloud and Rdio, the quality often drops further. Even the highest-quality MP3s contain less data than the same files would on CD, not to mention the theoretically infinite number of bits required to ideally digitize the old-school vinyl that Young so enthusiastically prefers. High-quality MP3s and lossless formats like FLAC and ALAC are an improvement over the 128kbps MP3s fans once grabbed from Napster, but in Young’s eyes, even the best digital formats leave much to be desired. Enter Pono. The high-capacity music player will hold lossless files with a dramatically higher sample rate and bit depth than CDs allow. Instead of 16-bit tracks sampled at 44.1kHz, Pono players will be packed with music encoded in 24 bits and sampled at 192kHz, equal to the DVD-Audio spec.Yet Another Format?The imminent arrival of Pono in the marketplace raises a few questions. For one, do we actually need this? The digital audio quality issue has long been a matter of intense debate among audiophiles and music fans. It’s certainly true that newer formats contain less data than analog sources, but does the average consumer care? Most songs on Spotify, for example, are compressed to a mediocre standard (premium users can unlock higher-quality streams), but services of this variety have managed to attract millions of users. For most of that audience, it appears, listening to music at less-than-CD quality sufficient. But then again, Pono isn’t intended for everybody. It’s geared toward audiophiles and purists. After all, high bit-rate MP3s and similar formats don’t sound terrible to the average person’s ear. It’s just that some of the details are lost or may sound slightly distorted. This raises another issue: Is there enough market demand to support a new music player and format? The industry can hardly get people to cough up $0.99 for a track on iTunes, let alone shell out for a premium-priced music player and super-high-quality files to play on it.That said, there’s a reason vinyl has seen a resurgence in the last few years. Young’s idea may seem counterintuitive given the misfortunes of the music industry over the last decade, but maybe he’s onto something. last_img read more

Hacker Crackdown: Blame AT&T’s Crappy Security, Not Weev

first_imgA Web Developer’s New Best Friend is the AI Wai… Why Tech Companies Need Simpler Terms of Servic… adam popescu A day later in a blog post on the Goatse Security site, Auernheimer and company wrote:I want to summarize this explicitly:All data was gathered from a public webserver with no password, accessible by anyone on the Internet. There was no breach, intrusion, or penetration.The dataset was not disclosed until we verified the problem was fixed by the vendor.The only person to receive the dataset was Gawker journalist Ryan Tate who responsibly redacted it.[…]We did this to help you.By its own account, AT&T responded with “swift action” to prevent additional intrusions: Within hours, AT&T disabled the mechanism that automatically populated the email address. Now, the authentication page log-in screen requires the user to enter both their email address and their password.Problem solved, right? Wrong. A week later Auernheimer was arrested after the FBI raided his house. He was then charged with major computer crimes under the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act (CFAA), the same legal club prosecutors have used to go after Aaron Swartz and, last week, Reuters social editor Matthew Keys.(See also: Reuters Social Editor Indicted Over Anonymous Hack; Internet’s Jaw Drops)During the trial, AT&T admitted the server was publicly accessible, yet claimed Auernheimer’s access was unauthorized. Under the CFAA, unauthorized access is a crime. But the statute’s ambiguity on that score has opened the door for egregious prosecutorial overreach in this and other cases.On Nov. 20, 2012, a jury found Auernheimer guilty of one count each of identity theft and conspiracy to violate the CFAA. Today, Auernheimer was sentenced.Fair Or Fanning The Flames?Supporters of Auernheimer say what he did was not a crime. Maybe it wasn’t smart to expose a major vulnerability at AT&T and then rub the company’s nose, but stupidity shouldn’t be a federal offense. Friends and colleagues point out that the point of hacking is to gain something from it — and in this case, there was no money involved and nothing else to gain but besides a measure of celebrity.Australian journalist and hacktivist Asher Wolf wrote a poignant piece today arguing that’s it’s insane to publicly tar and feather someone who spurred a company to fix a problem, even if he didn’t choose the most orthodox means of doing it:Putting Weev behind bars is pointless and tragic. Jailing the most outspoken men and women amongst our generation won’t stop the leaks, the hacks, the news revelations, the whistleblowers — and most of all it won’t stop the rage of the malcontent, dispossessed youth from eventually tumbling down upon the heads of the bureaucrats who sold us out and then tried to lock us up when we complained.Bees To HoneyAT&T’s vulnerability was basically low hanging fruit — just too easy a target for hackers to ignore. But the question of whether AT&T was asking for it is more complicated.Sure, poor security is asking for trouble. But playing with fire will get you burned no matter how righteous and ethical you claim to be. “Our conduct doesn’t happen in a vacuum,” hacker Adrian Lamo — the guy who allegedly dropped a dime on Bradley Manning — wrote on Twitter today. “I don’t think 3+ years is warranted for Weev, but in totality of circumstances, it’s understandable.”Still, this is significant time for essentially not hurting anyone, as the British journalist Laurie Penny pointed out. By comparison, the Steubenville rapists were sentenced to just one year in juvenile jail.This isn’t over. Auernheimer is appealing his conviction. And either another example will be made to hackers everywhere, or the sentence will be reduced.At the end of the day, Weev and co. were nicer to AT&T than, say, hacker HD Moore — who published unpatched iPhone flaws and exposed another big bug in Apple’s WiFi — was to Apple. But that doesn’t seem to matter much in the boardrooms and courtrooms of America. In their view, all hackers are criminals.Even many mainstream journalists think all hacking is a crime. Last night on 60 Minutes, for instance, Lara Logan basically accused Jack Dorsey’s early work of bordering on just that. And even with the best of intentions, hackers’ attempts to route around the system will likely never gain the benefit of the doubt with the public.Instead, they’ll just keep earning jail sentences, at least unless and until the courts — or Congress, though don’t hold your breath — push back against prosecutorial overreach. And that, at least, will give them plenty of time to repent at leisure.Lead image via Flickr user shane_curcuru, CC 2.0; image of Andrew Auernheimer via Wikimedia Commons Related Posts Tags:#data#hacking#privacy#security Top Reasons to Go With Managed WordPress Hosting Another hacker bites the dust. This morning, Andrew Auernheimer — aka “Weev” — got handed a sentence of 41 months in prison, 3 years of supervised release and a $36,500 fine. All for basically exposing a major security hole at AT&T and publicly shaming the company that hadn’t ever bothered to fix it.Back in 2010, Auernheimer and his partner Daniel Spitler, part of a team calling itself Goatse Security, hacked into a public server owned by AT&T. That server housed hundreds of thousands of email addresses of customers who owned 3G iPads. Through trial and error and some ingenuity, group members discovered they could randomly guess iPad identification numbers and then use them to extract matching email addresses from that server.AT&T’s Security Loophole, ExposedThis security loophole on AT&T’s site returned email addresses associated with ICC IDs, the unique serial numbers used to track and link SIM cards on mobile devices with specific subscribers. A PHP script that automated the process ended up harvesting a whopping 114,000 email addresses. Auernheimer then sent news of the group’s work as an exclusive to Gawker.(See also: U.S. Announces 120,000 iPad Users Had Their Data Stolen) 8 Best WordPress Hosting Solutions on the Marketlast_img read more
