3.4 Jesus’ resurrection and miracles   

Cache   

Did Jesus really make the miracles told in the Gospel? Has he really risen? Here is what Pope Benedict XVI said in the general audience of April 15, 2009: “Consequently, it is fundamental for our faith and for our Christian witness to proclaim the Resurrection of Jesus of Nazareth as a real, historical event, attested by many authoritative witnesses. We assert this forcefully because, in our day too, there are plenty of people who seek to deny its historicity, reducing the Gospel narrative to a myth, to a “vision” of the Apostles, taking up and presenting old and already worn-out theories as new and scientific.” In the words of the Pope the term “historic” is ambiguous: if we understand it in the same way as we consider Giuseppe Garibaldi a historical figure, we should conclude that believing in the resurrection of Jesus requires not an act of faith, but a forced assent, in the same way we cannot allow ourselves not to believe that Giuseppe Garibaldi existed. But “historical” can also mean “of historical significance”, that is “capable of having effects on history”; in this sense any novel is also historical, because it is able to arouse concrete effects in the people who read it, who are historical figures. However, the context of the Pope’s speech suggests that he refers to the first sense of the word “historical” that we have referred to. After knowing metaphysics, we understand that applying the term “real” to something does not increase its concreteness. The knowledge of the three main ways of thinking, metaphysical, anti-metaphysical and practical, leads us at this point to adopt practical thought as the best tool for thinking about the resurrection. We can therefore say that Jesus is “really” risen, but meaning the term “really” not in opposition to dreams, fairy tales, fantasies, since reality itself can be considered a dream, but in opposition to what is not capable to be appreciated with practical effects in our lives. We can ask ourselves: but then does resurrection depend on our putting it into practice? In doing so, however, we would fall into a new metaphysics, that is, the metaphysics of our practice, which would become the source of salvation for everything, even for the resurrection of Jesus. Instead it is a matter of understanding that practicing something does not mean making it real, but relating to it in the way that today appears to us to be the best. We do not save the resurrection by putting it into practice, nor does it save us in a metaphysical sense. The term “salvation” itself contains a metaphysical, totalizing temptation. Today, instead, we find it better to say that the method of practicing appears to us better and, once this method is adopted, a Christian can realize that actually even God himself has always related to him in relative, practical, not absolute ways. After this, it will be easy to deduce that it makes no sense to ask whether miracles happened in a way independent from believing. The statements of the doctors cannot make a healing “real”, because saying “real” does not mean anything clear. It would be like thinking of understanding a thing better if they explain it to us in Chinese. When doctors say that a person who could not heal is healed, actually they have not demonstrated anything. In fact, when we face unexplainable events, science refers to research and faith refers to choice; in both cases the need to stop on a definitive conclusion is disappointed. The insistence on doctors’ statements is a dishonest effort to lighten the weight of the choice of faith, trying to steal some support from science, asking it for what it cannot give. Why then does the gospel tell about miracles? It tells them not to testify scientifically, historically the existence of inexplicable events (it could not, even if it wanted to), nor to ensure that believers can comfort themselves by stealing scientific support from it, but to say that God is greater than the human mind and is able to accomplish what man is not even able to imagine. This actually already applies to any person. What does it mean to be God then? The greatness of God is not in the ability to break the laws of nature, also because actually we don’t even know what breaking the laws of nature means, but in the fact that he offers the possibility of relationships capable of being appreciated practically as superior to those possible with the other people of this world.

          

House of Lords open letter to Monckton: you are not a member!

House of Lords open letter to Monckton: you are not a member!

After The House of Lords wrote to Monckton telling him that he should not claim to be a member, Monckton kept doing it. So now The House of Lords has written an open letter to Monckton:

My predecessor, Sir Michael Pownall, wrote to you on 21 July 2010, and again on 30 July 2010, asking that you cease claiming to be a Member of the House of Lords, either directly or by implication. It has been drawn to my attention that you continue to make such claims.

In particular, I have listened to your recent interview with Mr Adam Spencer on Australian radio. In response to the direct question, whether or not you were a Member of the House of Lords, you said "Yes, but without the right to sit or vote". You later repeated, "I am a Member of the House".

I must repeat my predecessor's statement that you are not and have never been a Member of the House of Lords. Your assertion that you are a Member, but without the right to sit or vote, is a contradiction in terms.

Leo Hickman has more:

Buckingham Palace was drawn into the dispute when it was revealed that Pownall had sought advice from the Lord Chamberlain, a key officer in the royal household, on the potential misuse of the portcullis emblem due to it being the property of the Queen. The Buckingham Palace website states that any misuse of the emblem is prohibited by the Trade Marks Act 1994, meaning Monckton could potentially be liable for fines and a six-month prison term if the palace pursues the matter and successfully prosecutes him.

As far as I know, I was the first person to note that Monckton was lying about his membership of The House of Lords, way back in 2007.

See also: John Quiggin:

That's typically the opening lie in a Monckton presentation that misrepresents everything from the United Nations to the laws of arithmetic. It's hard to imagine how many cease and desist letters would be required to stop all the falsehoods, or what would be left of his presentation if they were removed[1].

The 27 Best Concerts in Portland: November 7-20

Cher! Brittany Howard! Summer Walker! Blitzen Trapper! by Mercury EverOut Staff

THURS NOV 7

{{image:7, align:right, width:250}}

CRITIC’S PICK: Seefeel
You don’t listen to the music of Seefeel—you submerge yourself in it. Each release by the UK quartet—four full-lengths and a bunch of EPs—is constructed from the usual rock-group elements: guitar, bass, drums, keyboard, and vocals. But from those pieces, the group bends and manipulates every sound with delicious indulgence, generating lush, balmy compositions that hang thickly in the air.

In Seefeel’s earliest incarnation, albums like 1993’s Quique and 1995’s Succour fell into an amorphous zone where shoegaze and the earliest blushes of EDM found common cause—the same place where groups like My Bloody Valentine and Curve were planting their flags. Led by core members Mark Clifford and Sarah Peacock, Seefeel were, by contrast, much softer and lighter. (Clifford also makes wonderful electronic rackets on his own and in the duo Oto Hiax; Peacock works with the more dance-oriented outfit Scala.) Their immersive, foggy material brought in the influence of dub reggae, Brian Eno’s ambient compositions, and the sleek futurism of Tokyo’s “environmental music” movement.

After a 1996 album, (CH-VOX), recorded for Aphex Twin’s label, tensions within the group split Seefeel apart for the better part of a decade. But an invite to play an anniversary party for Warp Records and a reissue of Quique in ’07 got Clifford and Peacock speaking and collaborating again, bringing in a new rhythm section comprised of former Boredoms members Iida Kazuhisa and bassist Shigeru Ishihara to complete the picture.

The subsequent years have hardened Seefeel’s sound, as evidenced by their 2008 self-titled album. The drum tracks are rigid and spare, and the music surrounding them is glitchy and agitated. It’s a reflection, perhaps, of our anxious modern age, but one that still slots in well with the evolution of their aesthetic as individuals and as a group.

Little Hurricane
With the weather growing colder and the sun going down earlier, now is the perfect time for discovering new music at home, especially when the artist in question—dirty blues band Little Hurricane—provides ideal background music for nocturnal snuggling on the couch. Their minimalist blues-rock has been the soundtrack of five Taco Bell commercials, which, as a cheap-burrito lover, almost makes me love the San Diego duo even more. The only thing better than a Friday night is one spent listening to Little Hurricane’s lo-fi sounds. Check out songs like “Haunted Heart,” “Sun Sets West,” and “Give ’Em Hell,” and prepare yourself for one mother of a staycation. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Doug Fir Lounge, 830 E Burnside, $20-23) KATHERINE MORGAN

Mikal Cronin, Shannon Lay
Mikal Cronin possess the uncanny knack for penning effortless-sounding pop gems. On his fourth record, Seeker, he mines his self-introspection and the comeback from a bad case of writer’s block with convincing aplomb, conjuring Tom Petty melodies on the single “Show Me” with help from Ty Segall’s Freedom Band (of which he is a card-carrying member). There’s a lot of inferno-inspired writing coming out of California following last year’s devastating wildfires, and Seeker is no different, exploring ideas of rebirth from destruction. Cronin seems a gentle soul armed with the ability to pull wisdom from a chaotic world. (Fri Nov 8, 9 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $15-17) RYAN J. PRADO

Robert Forster
The last time Robert Forster was in the Northwest, it was as a member of the Go-Betweens, performing in Seattle in 2005 during what would become that venerable pop group’s final tour. (Forster’s longtime musical partner Grant McLennan suddenly passed away a year later.) Much has happened in Forster’s life since then, including a regular gig as a music critic, an impassioned memoir about his work with McLennan, and three fantastic solo albums. His most recent, Inferno, finds Forster in peak form, with a folk-pop backing band, ambling through his back pages and unblinkingly facing his waning years with grace. (Sat Nov 9, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $22-25) ROBERT HAM


SUN NOV 10

Blitzen Trapper, The Parson Red Heads
The experimental folk-country monster pairing of Blitzen Trapper and the Parson Red Heads alone would make for a formidable evening at Revolution Hall, but tonight’s all-ages, fully seated show has a more philanthropic bent. The concert will benefit Do Good Multnomah, a local nonprofit working to assist veterans with housing by way of “relationship-building, one-on-one engagement, supportive services, and direct community participation.” Both bands are staples of Portland’s psych-oriented roots-rock scene and have transcended the city’s confines with their last several albums. Check them out and help a good cause at the same time. (Sun Nov 10, 7 pm, Revolution Hall, 1300 SE Stark, all ages, $30) RYAN J. PRADO


MON NOV 11

June of 44, Belonging
June of 44 disbanded soon after perfecting their squirrelly amalgam of post-rock and post-hardcore on 1999’s Anahata. For listeners of a certain (suddenly somehow old) age, the band’s return will trigger flashbacks to a time when it was illegal to make a student film without at least one Tortoise song on its soundtrack, but June of 44’s unexpected reunion promises to be more than a nostalgia trip. They were always a little too restive and mercurial to settle into a groove, so even a pitch-perfect recreation of their glory days will be nervy enough to light up the now.

Son Little
Son Little has been making musical alchemy ever since releasing his debut EP in 2014. But on his early work, including his 2015 self-titled debut, you can hear Little only beginning to refine his unique sound—a mix of soul, blues, and electronica—which he’d come close to perfecting on 2017’s brilliant sophomore album New Magic. For his new EP, Invisible, Little traveled to Paris’ famed Studios Ferber, and the six new songs show the multi-instrumentalist and singer still continuing to develop and experiment with his craft. Tonight’s show at the Old Church isn’t to be missed; this preacher’s son is sure to give a sanctified and transcendent performance.

Bea Miller, Kah-Lo, Kennedi
Popping onto the scene as a 13-year-old X-Factor contestant with a jaw-dropping voice, Bea Miller is all grown up (at the age of 20) both physically and emotionally. Her voice has matured as well, with a full, husky, and soulful sound that drops into radio-ready dance club jams with little effort. But there’s depth in her lyrics as well, as exemplified by songs from her sophomore album Aurora, which showcase her deep moods about problematic relationships (“Burning Bridges”), slut-shaming (“S.L.U.T.”), and ultimately self-love (“Repercussions”). If you’re a complicated person with complicated feelings, Miller is on your team, stylishly and confidently pushing all the right emotional buttons.

Summer Walker
Atlanta-born singer/songwriter Summer Walker has become R&B’s newest “It Girl” on the heels of her single “Girls Need Love” (along with a Drake remix), and her outstanding studio debut Over It. Vocally speaking, Walker’s appropriately titled project is basically flawless. There are obvious standouts, like “Playing Games” featuring Bryson Tiller, “Wasted,” and “Come Thru” which both samples and features Usher. Another notable release is an older cut, “Session 32,” which Walker sometimes likes to perform on acoustic guitar. And from the sounds of her live performances online, she tends to sound identical to the record. If you’re into the sex-positivity of Megan THEE Stallion and like well-seasoned R&B vocals riding on a trap beat (à la H.E.R. and Ella Mai), Summer Walker’s impeccable soul-singing is right up your alley. (Thurs Nov 14, 8:30 pm, Crystal Ballroom, 1332 W Burnside, all ages, $35-39.50) JENNI MOORE

Hustle and Drone, Karma Rivera, Kileo
It’s been five years since Portland-based electro-pop band Hustle and Drone released its debut full-length album, Holyland. At one point, members Ryan Neighbors and Andy Black thought they’d made major progress on a follow-up effort, with 25 songs written over a two-year period. But when producer Sonny DiPerri heard them, his response—described by the band only as “tough love”—prompted the duo to scrap everything and start over from scratch. This time, their work turned into an actual album, What an Uproar, which finds Hustle and Drone exploring a very moody take on synth and beat-driven electro-pop. Upbeat but not cheerful, catchy but not effusive, What an Uproar is a collection of dark and danceable bummer-songs that befit our times. (Thurs Nov 14, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, $7) BEN SALMON

Rodney Crowell, Joe Robinson
Among a particular school of songwriters, Rodney Crowell is country music royalty. His place in the Nashville firmament was secured by not only the run of number one singles he scored in 1988-89 (all from his album Diamonds & Dirt), but also his work with Emmylou Harris and lesser known masterpieces like “Voilà, an American Dream” and “Stars on the Water.” With that pedigree, Crowell should be headlining a much bigger venue than the Alberta Rose Theatre. But rather than gripe about that, let’s instead revel in the fact that we’ll get to experience his intimate songs in an appropriately intimate setting.

Death Valley Girls, Crocodiles, Kate Clover
Death Valley Girls creates fuzzed-out, overdriven, guitar-heavy rock ’n’ roll that owes just as much to riot grrrl pioneers like Bikini Kill as to proto-punk icons like the Stooges and Dead Boys. Formed in 2013 by guitarist Larry Schemel and frontwoman Bonnie Bloomgarden, the LA band has released only a few albums, including their 2014 Burger Records debut, Street Venom, but their new single, “Dream Cleaver,” released this August on Suicide Squeeze, might be their catchiest work yet, proving that their best material is still ahead of them. For proof of their proto-punk credentials, check out their 2018 music video for “Disaster (Is What We’re After),” starring a very bemused-looking Iggy Pop eating a hamburger.

Brother Ali, Evidence
The beauty of hip-hop’s multifaceted evolution over the past couple of decades is that there’s something out there for everyone. If, for example, sing-song pop-hop or slurry Soundcloud rap isn’t your thing, you can dig into artists like Brother Ali and Evidence, two skilled MCs connected to respected indie hip-hop label Rhymesayers Entertainment. Ali is the better known of the two, thanks to a two-decade career built around his thoughtful, soft-spoken style and his social activism. His most recent album All the Beauty in This Whole Life is another banger in an incredibly consistent catalog. Evidence’s sound is more aggressive, both in its lyrical content and its beats. He came up with LA’s Dilated Peoples, one of the giants of the ’90s underground, but he ain’t falling off: His most recent album Weather or Not was one of the best releases of 2018, regardless of genre. (Fri Nov 15, 8 pm, Hawthorne Theatre, 1507 SE Cesar E Chavez, all ages, $22-26) BEN SALMON

Amy Rigby
In my dream Coachella-style music festival, Amy Rigby would be the big headliner. She’s certainly got the talent and the tunes to command an audience of thousands. Just give a spin to her spotless 1996 debut album Diary of a Mod Housewife or her equally perfect 2018 release The Old Guys, records that are brimming with chiming power-pop tunes and Rigby’s arch yet sensitive worldview. As it is, Rigby will be bringing her inestimable skills to the much smaller confines of Turn! Turn! Turn! to perform some tunes and read from her recently published memoir Girl to City.

Sea Caves, Lee and the Bees, Jame Doe
After being nearly finished writing and recording their latest record, founding Sea Caves member Shiloh Halsey fired himself as lead singer, and the group searched for someone new to front the band. Having recently reformed with singer Sydney Rohrs, at the helm, Portland dream-pop five-piece Sea Caves is set to release Across the Water, their follow-up to 2016’s easily likeable Bright Forest. Across the Water (out November 15) comes after two excellent singles, “Dart” and “Birds”—and the rest of the album is just as pleasant. The 10-track project embraces change in spite of the inevitable discomfort that typically accompanies it. (Sat Nov 16, 9 pm, Bunk Bar, 1028 SE Water, $10) JENNI MOORE

Ulthar, Tithe, Hungers
Oakland’s Ulthar are the musical equivalent of some ethereal being from an H.P. Lovecraft story; a grotesque sin against nature, dripping goo from its unreasonable amount of appendages and eyeballs, handily exposing mankind’s flaws with its ancient knowledge and biological superiority. Ulthar is scathing, ever dissonant, and, depending on which side of the creature you’re hearing, straight death metal, black metal, or even crust. And wouldn’t you know it, upon further research, their lyrical themes are Lovecraft-inspired as well. Sound, meet context. The band formed in 2014, releasing their first full-length Cosmovore last year. Seeing as how this monster is in the early gestation period, you can expect Ulthar to get even stranger and more dangerous.

Devon Welsh, Sorry Girls
Devon Welsh’s voice is a little miracle, a consoling gift akin to dawn light streaming through a lover’s window or the smell of rain on hot concrete. It’s hard to describe how a voice like this echoes inside of the listener. It is a presence, not a force. And thank god. There is too much force in the world and not enough presence. There are too few subtle sharpenings of time and space, too few voices like Welsh’s, which seems more poured than pushed, something purified and released back into the world from which it came, where it will dirty itself once again. It is the sound of being alive inside a self that is inside something too huge to comprehend. (Sun Nov 17, 8 pm, Mississippi Studios, 3939 N Mississippi, $12-14) CHRIS STAMM

The Preservation Hall Jazz Band
The 56-year-old Preservation Hall Jazz Band embodies the best of New Orleans’ slightly sloshy French Quarter: the music. A cornerstone of the city’s jazz scene, Preservation Hall’s upbeat, brassy tunes sound plucked from a Frenchmen Street second line procession. So It Is (2017), the septet’s second album containing all-original melodies, infuses the band’s historic jazz tunes with Afro-Cuban beats, adding to Preservation Hall’s magical ability to transform melodies into a layered history of New Orleans. Now the prolific band is touring in support of their new record A Tuba to Cuba, out on November 29. Their recent main-stage set at Pickathon was worthy of all the standing ovations, and their upcoming show, while indoors, should be just as marvelous.

Big Freedia, Low Cut Connie
New Orleans bounce artist Big Freedia comes to Portland quite a bit. Most recently, Freedia played a wild, twerk-forward opening set at the Roseland while on her joint tour with fellow NOLA act Tank and the Bangas. Freedia is known for her high-energy live shows, and inviting a bunch of audience members on stage, where they can present their best twerking skills while Freedia hypes them up. Having toured with other contrasting acts like LCD Soundsystem and the Postal Service, Freedia’s current tour with roots rockers Low Cut Connie should come as no surprise.

Cher, Nile Rogers and Chic
If you were wondering if Cher, now 73, is ever going to stop performing—she’s not. Cher is a goddamn juggernaut of energy, hits, and sass that will outlast the final cockroach crawling on Earth after climate change has burned the rest of us to a crisp. She will rise out of whatever ashes are left, surrounded by sequined flames, looking FABULOUS, and rocketing into the stratosphere singing, “Do you BELIEVE in life after love?” And as she and her gorgeous contralto voice soars, hurtling headlong into space, she’ll still be tweeting sweet shit-talk at Donald Trump, and plotting her fifth comeback (YES, FIFTH—LOOK IT THE FUCK UP) eventually landing in some galaxy far, far away, ready to entertain and delight every person, alien, or thing that is lucky enough to be in her glorious path—just as she has for the past 44 years. Nile Rogers and Chic (“Le Freak,” “Good Times”) are fortunate enough to be sharing this bill (those lucky sons of bitches). (Tues Nov 19, 7:30 pm, Moda Center, 1 N Winning Way, all ages, $27-647) WM. STEVEN HUMPHREY

Liturgy, Truck, U SCO
Like foie gras and Snickers and amusement parks, Liturgy songs are deeply satisfying until the second you’ve had enough, at which point you just want to bail and not think about having a body and brain anymore. This is not a knock on band mastermind Hunter Hunt-Hendrix’s boundary-nudging black metal. His compositions mess with the cloistered world of extreme music in rewarding ways, but they can be kind of a lot. Take this not as a warning but as a promise: Liturgy will push you past the line between too much and way too much, and you’ll definitely feel it in the morning.

Julia Jacklin, Christian Lee Hutson
Anyone present at either of Julia Jacklin’s Pickathon performances this past summer (but especially her Treeline Stage set) are keenly aware of the Australian artist’s hypnotic stranglehold on timeless folk songwriting. Her 2019 sophomore record, Crushing, catapulted her into the echelon of Aussies/Kiwis apparently plotting to take over the singer/songwriter world (along with Courtney Barnett, Aldous Harding, and Stella Donnelly, to name a few). “Crushing” is a great descriptor for Jacklin’s easy-breezy pop tunes, too, like the driving, heavy-lidded “Head Alone” or the more raucous “Pressure to Party.” Give her a great welcome back to Oregon tonight in the cozy Aladdin. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Aladdin Theater, 3017 SE Milwaukie, all ages, $18-22) RYAN J PRADO

Alessandro Cortini
Best known as the keyboard player in Nine Inch Nails and the frontman for electronic-alternative band SONOIO, Alessandro Cortini is coming to shake things up at Holocene. Strangely, Cortini’s solo artistry is almost unheard of, which makes describing why you should see this show harder than normal. Cortini’s an artist who cares about his craft; every note is calculated, but only you can determine how they are deciphered. Attending a Cortini show almost feels intimate, but he is a master of tone and bass, so even when you feel alone, it will warm your soul to know that you aren’t. Get out on the dance floor and get ready to have your mind blown. (Wed Nov 20, 8 pm, Holocene, 1001 SE Morrison, $18-20) KATHERINE MORGAN

CRITIC’S PICK: Brittany Howard
Brittany Howard has more than proven herself as a leader in the retro-soul movement. After two critically acclaimed albums with roots-rock band Alabama Shakes (2012’s Boys & Girls and 2015’s Grammy-winning Sound & Color), singer/songwriter Brittany Howard dropped her solo studio debut Jaime in September. On this new album, Howard has full artistic control and pushes the envelope of soul music with an authentic, modern angle that doesn’t shy away from the vulnerable or political. The stunning record is a testament to Howard’s expert vocal control, and its songs reveal that she’s done her fair share of soul-searching—where do I even start? Lead single “History Repeats” was already exceptional, but the vintage-sounding “Stay High” has become one of my favorite (and most applicable) love songs of 2019. (Howard also recently released a gorgeous video of her performing a stripped-down, acoustic version of the song in a rural New Mexico setting, and it’s a master class in musicianship.) Other highlights include... the entire fucking thing, but especially “He Loves Me,” “Goat Head,” the weary “13th Century Metal,” and “Georgia.” As Howard explained during her recent performance on NPR’s Tiny Desk Concert series, “Georgia” was written from “the perspective of being a little young Black gay girl having a crush on an older Black girl, and not knowing how to tell her, or what to say or how I was feeling.” The song starts with a sweetly sung chorus that repeats “I just want Georgia to notice me,” and then Howard opens each verse as if she’s addressing a letter to the titular character, crooning the familiar melody of “Georgia on My Mind” for just a moment. Howard’s careful and tender vocalizations beautifully express her feelings of uncertainty during the song’s climax: (“Is it unnatural?/Georgia, is it cool?/I wanna tell you that I love you”); but it’s the exquisite, mounting sound of organ keys and a swelling guitar solo that make the love confession song a full-blown masterpiece. From watching all the videos of her recent live sessions, it’s hard to determine whether Howard and her band sounds better live or recorded, but her upcoming gig at the Roseland will give Portlanders a chance to decide for themselves.

Stop producing Engineers………?   

Cache   

It has often been raised that we should limit the supply of Engineers to the market in order to increase the remuneration levels through normal supply/demand dynamics. The ensuing debate tends to indicate that employers would then employ unqualified or untrained persons with the resultant risk of the failure of the system through poor design, operation and maintenance.

The answer must therefore lie in addressing both limitations and to converge towards a combination of necessity and sufficiency and meeting a standard of safety and reliability which effectively means a level that is decreed by adherence to the laws of science. That is a pretty good advantage we have in our profession.

SA is essentially set up for this structure via internationally accredited tertiary qualifications, a well-defined candidate training model with professionally focused assessment criteria, which will shortly be joined by the requirements of Identification of Engineering Work (IDoEW). As with any great rules and structures, they are only any use if implemented effectively by the parties concerned.

Can there be any doubt that Engineers would want to maximize the return on time and effort? As the income levels rise, more Engineers will enter the profession. But engineering, of all the professions, is 
probably the one most readily open to the "quacks" of the discipline, employing guess work, non-adherence to standards, quick fixes and obfuscations which can delude the public. Examples are rife. 

Then there is the take-over of roles that should be performed by the Engineer by bean counters and politicians and the like in matters of selection of cost effectiveness on maintenance, for one example.

This prostitution of Engineering can therefore only be contained by regulation. Thus, as we proceed from the well regulated tertiary starting point, we recognize the need for competence standards and assessment criteria for registration, followed by IDoEW in the realm of practice.

The demand then for the numbers of Engineers required will follow from the needs of society. The constant refrain on scarcity of skills would indicate that the demand still exceeds supply. This imbalance is aggravated by the social engineering effects such as BEE which frequently skew the balance of skills. If only the system would recognize the serious loss of continuum created by expelling the older experienced white Engineers. When their intellect is gone, how will the younger Engineers develop?

We may have a bit of a breakthrough on the involvement of the retired Engineers as Mentors. To encourage this, as from April 2015, the SETAs are obligated to fund the training of Candidate Engineers. 

Most of this funding is destined to pay Mentors in a structured mentorship process.

In reality, engineering remuneration is growing to hopefully compare with the other professions. Let's keep it that way. Professional recognition, upkeep of high standards and ethical conduct will raise the status of Engineers in society.


          

Will the NDP actually start happening?   

Cache   

We have been subjected to the National Development Plan for some time now with various degrees of emphasis. Government, or at least in reality the ANC, continues to use it as a manifesto item typical of political posturing presumably to convince the public (and the voters) that the country is all set to have an era of great investment, new projects, employment opportunities, export improvements, and reversal of the fiscal deficits amongst many attributes. The better life for all stuff. The alliance continues to nitpick at it and academic and research organisations find flaws in the numbers and the statistics as though it is all an exact science. It has taken on the form of a sort of hallucinating drug that one places one’s faith in when faced with the current economic reality. It all depends on what is one’s own perspective of current reality.

Engineers would be inclined to agree on the need for the NDP, the 18 Strategic Infrastructure Projects (SIPs) and the spin off from the designing, planning, constructing, commissioning, maintaining and operating of all these projects. These will use all the engineering capacity that we have, and more. Never mind from where the investment funds are to come from, that remains all smoke and mirrors and it’s hard to believe that the country will suddenly find R800 odd billion and then spend it over three years on completed projects.

Perhaps closer to the Engineer’s concern is, if we had all that money, where are we going to find the sufficient number of engineering resources to spend it (properly)? We will avoid contemplating the potential behind the corruption that is now endemically entrenched in our country with very little accountability. The efforts to ascertain the available engineering resources by the PICC/SIPs/DHET/ECSA/Volunteer committees will presumably produce some results but so far the numbers do not seem more than high level estimates. I believe it was an exercise to find out what we already knew: we have a scarce skills problem. My own evaluation is that the systems and processes used cannot measure the extent of the scarcity in a meaningful way if the time frame is that of the SIPs programme. This is an example of breaching a very fundamental engineering ethos: if you cannot measure it, you do not know much about it. Clearly, if the metrics used to measure the scarcity do not take this into account, the process while necessary, is insufficient.

The 18 SIPs projects are reasonably well defined at a high level. From this a start should be made to identify the required resources by a reasonable relationship between project size and type. The reality is however, that those who will need the resources normally specify the needs at a granular level, not a generic level that emerged from this committee. Efforts of the SAIMechE to propose a model to measure the needs, to locate as many as possible from the existing market and to focus Candidate Engineer development in those scarce areas are met with a sort of glazed, unconvinced response by the “authorities”. After all, we have to find ways to spend R800 billion effectively, but it would appear that to spend a few million on getting knowledge of the course to take to manage the scarce skills issue is considered either too expensive or unnecessary. The real reason is uncertain as the response has been nil. If the proposed model were to show a return on investment, it would only have to save about one thousandth of one percent of the programme budget to cover its cost. It’s a no-brainer when one realises the costs, delays and consequences of the scarce skills impact on projects. Take a look at Medupi and the Durban-Jhb pipeline as examples. Consider the impact on infrastructure service delivery alone.  There are legendary other cases out there that show the result of technically incapacitated owners’ teams alone.

But then that makes the assumption that the NDP actually is going to happen. If history is anything to go by, we may still be talking about it this time next year. With elections over and “won”, why hurry? At least it may all work as a dream forming drug.

          

The steady decline to lowest common denominator   

Cache   

I guess we have to criticize the laws of the universe, those annoying and inviolate laws of science and the basic engineering fundamentals for not taking account of the inability of those "leading” the functions of the built environment development and essential skills training in South Africa to achieve the standards required to meet these laws. Why uphold compliance with nature’s laws when it is much easier to change the need for them by a politically driven relaxation? It is clearly far easier to decide to set regulations for practitioners and contractors to use the surplus numbers of unqualified persons to be awarded government contracts for purposes of building the infrastructure.

After all, with this policy and approach we can meet the necessary political targets which seem to be far more important than ensuring compliance with structural, life-cycle and safety standards that have evolved over decades of proven engineering practice. We must learn to be satisfied with our new-found decrees from those that rule, and we can even indulge in some self-praise when we comment "……that bridge was nearly strong enough……… we were quite close really”.

So, in keeping with the above aspiration to continue our acceptance of adjusted standards and drive for the common denominator leading to "a better life for all”, the Minister, ably assisted by the cidb, has recently decreed the following”

"The key amendments include the removal of the requirement for contractors to have registered professionals in their permanent employ; this is to be removed as it is not viable to have such professionals in a contractor’s full-time employ". "The requirement for the Registered Professional is therefore being moved from a contractor registration requirement to a contract management requirement as a condition of contract”.

Essentially, the roles of the Professional Engineer, Technologist and Technician will now effectively be subservient to that of the registered Construction Manager on matters where professional engineering judgment is required. I guess with the comedy of the self-inflicted war games that have been played out between ECSA and the CBE over the important subject of Identification of Engineering Work (IDoEW), not much more could have been expected. Those unregistered Engineers or at least those practicing as such can continue to act without any fear of liability as the rules that govern registration, ethics and safe practice do not apply to them. The IDoEW deliberations commenced in 2006. It’s now 2013 and we are still counting. The profession has messed about arguing while we witness a steady entropic decline in the built environment.

On the topic of training of young Engineers in industry, I thought I would recall some gems that arose in 2012 whilst endeavouring to persuade certain employers to consider taking on basically good candidates and provide some development and experience to assist feeding talent into the skills pool.

"We do not have the time, the money or the systems to train anyone. Just find us a qualified and experienced Engineer. We need a PDI between 30 and 35, with 15 years experience as an Engineering Manager”. (Allowed cost to company will remain undisclosed here to protect the guilty.)

"We do not have time to train or develop anyone into this specialized role. Please find us fully qualified candidates who can hit the ground running”. No acceptable candidates have emerged to date.

Cyril Ramaphosa has confirmed that the ANC policy is to spend R845 billion on infrastructure in the next 3 years. I found that his recent TV interview conveyed blind optimism and was most unconvincing. I can only assume that he does not know that he does not know what is needed to do that properly. Professional government and provincial owners’ teams and supply contractor capacity appear not to feature in his model.

Anyone who cares about developing professional engineering skills should be made aware of the new candidate training curriculum that will be instituted by ECSA and the Voluntary Engineering Associations in April 2013. It identifies the exit level outcomes that define the professional and will be the fastest and most effective route to competence and registration that can be envisaged.


          

Qualifications and the phase to professional competence   

Cache   

I often follow the debate on the profiles, experiences, expectations and opinions of the issues concerning the Baby Boomers (born 1940 t0 1960), The Generation Xs (1960 to 1975-ish), and the Generation Ys (post 1976). These periods are derivations taken from many historical analyses of the parties who study the phenomena of the age eras and their characteristics.

Probably the most significant item that is relevant to all these age groups is that of lifestyle and the values that define that. Each age group tends to indulge in the criticism of the previous one laying blame for all the problems that beset their current lifestyles. Characteristics such as social responsibilities, work ethics, corporate practice, family stability, wealth profile and continuity of employment are significant items. It just seems to be easier to blame the earlier generation for its own generation’s problems rather than exhibit and practice leadership and responsibility for one’s own.

Corporate value systems have changed with the evolution of bottom line items that go beyond profit. Awareness of the environment, ecology and health systems have emerged strongly where the impacts of these are able to be managed with technology development.

In engineering education training and practice, it is not uncommon to witness those who question the effectiveness of present-day curricula which in real terms have not differed significantly from those of earlier generations. Obviously the tools that facilitate learning have changed with modern information technology developments such as computers, software and digital configuration. How often has one heard the comments questioning the inclusion of certain academic basics into programmes where the graduate has claimed that such learning has never been applied in their subsequent careers? In engineering curricula this may be a truism but the challenge is that due to the "connectedness” of science and technology, where does one omit such content?

The great thing about an engineering curriculum is that it addresses the challenge of tackling those aspects of life that do not radically change: the laws of nature and science remain intact, the fundamentals still exist, the approach to problem solving and the need to develop empirical competence are still the foundations of the Engineer’s world. They are the toolbox for future applications. What does matter thereafter is the training and practice of how to use them to build the environment we purport to do better than any other profession.

The matter of becoming competent to apply these principals, plus those of management and economics, then need to be assessed as to their relevance of past experiences on modern engineering practice. Have these changed other than for the tweaking required for inclusion of new technologies, materials development, and refinement of codes of practice for example? What age group is the right mentorship group? Are the retired or semi-retired the right dispensers of experiential skills and advice? Has this thinking now emerged for the reason that each generation of Engineers from the baby boomer era was both supervised and mentored by the next level in the system as a matter of course where is was not called "official mentoring” but de facto on the job development in the process of evolving the next skills layer?

There was clear period of world practice in infrastructure development with the emergence of industry, production and modern supply chain logistics. Large projects covering all the technologies were common: energy development, transport, communications and service industries emerged that had decades of continuity that encouraged sequential training and development of practical skills.

We must question why we now have an era where this has reduced significantly and it is evident that internationally well experienced skills in the lower, active age groups are in very short supply.

From a human development perspective, the period over which a candidate Engineer needs to develop sufficient competencies to be recognized as a professional will not have changed. Gladwell’s theory on the 10,000 hour rule probably applies where any person claiming expertise will have spent 10,000 hours odd developing that expertise. So the candidacy phase which is set as 3 years minimum is rarely met, and the statistics show that 5 years is the norm. If you work that out, it is about 10,000 hours.

Until we return to the era of on-the-job sequential skills development, we will have to recall the retired and semi-retired who are willing to fill this space. Regrettably in SA, we have bolstered the loss of this intellectual capacity by dumb affirmative action politics and short term financial returns. The challenge is when this capacity is not available in books or boxes, it is the only option. This capacity must be applied sensibly to the emerging graduate training programmes to make the most of their 10,000 hours needed to reach a recognized level of professional competence.


          

Why engineering must always survive   

Cache   

One does not have to be a rocket scientist to gather that the world is in trouble of a type not experienced by any previous generation, but I guess that goes for most types of threats that have engulfed society since the dawn of civilization. It is unlikely that we can go back into history to look for solutions other than to believe that certain fundamentals must prevail. One of them must essentially be an application of the laws of preservation of energy where we cannot take out more than we put into a closed system. Pretty basic stuff when associated with thermodynamics and physics lessons, but seemingly quite another matter when it comes to the behavior of society.

The perverse antics of the investment banking community and those that believed in the ever growing value of assets that had no energy (value) actually added to them and the printing of dollars to bail out the losers, has left in its wake what must be no more than a painful correction to comply with the laws of energy. The dangers now posed by the dollar and the USA's debt pile are horrific. When the USA sneezes, then the rest of the world gets a bad cold. We can call this the macro threat to SA because international trade will be affected. Then we go to our local scene and try to evaluate if we can handle this pending debt tsunami only to find we have been playing some bad rule breaking games of our own. Our (new) political dispensation learnt little from the old regime and in fact seemed to find quite a bit attractive about it even if assigned different labels.

World-wide, nations have failed to invest in the appropriate level of infrastructure to keep up with the burgeoning population. It has used up service facilities, minimized maintenance, splurged on quick returns, ignored sustainability, deceived and lied to voters who seem to take a while to realise it. Locally, SA has probably come first in class for messing up education from the ground up (let's play OBE and close the teachers training colleges as well), disposed of its well developed intellectual capital (the best mining skills and artisan training in the world), replaced its ability to manage the infrastructure by providing comfortable salaried positions for its buddies (failed municipal service delivery), reducing food production (handing agricultural assets to those untrained to manage them) amongst others.

Who contributes to the adding of energy as distinct from taking it out? Politicians? Lawyers? Accountants? Social Scientists? Medics? Bureaucrats? Do these add energy or simply move it around and consume it?

If Engineers feel aggrieved at being unemployed then we can affix blame on the way society values creators. How many industries actually take training of engineering resources seriously, and how many managements and HR departments find more value in preserving the company from the liabilities of Engineers over 55 or 60 than in using them to be productive and mentor the younger Engineers? No, rather go out and find those that are employed by others. Steal from Peter to pay Paul. It's easier than training our own, because our neighbour steals them from us anyway. It is a zero sum game and when the tipping point comes, it is too late. There is then little or no critical level energy being added for the other professions to pilfer. To this is add the incompetence of the politicians who are playing expediency games. Currently, with the combination of economic policy, labour policy, employment equity policy, education policy, skills development policy, SA is reaching the point of de-industrialisation and has slipped to a dismal low ranking in the world's mining stakes.

China's faith in its ability to mould markets may derive from the fact that its leaders are mostly Engineers, trained to build from a plan. Eight of nine top party officials come from engineering backgrounds, and the practicality of their profession may help explain why they didn't buy into risky (and Western) financial innovation. These ruling Engineers preside over a system that is highly process oriented and obsesses with performance metrics. In all this mess, what profession can best survive internationally? If someone can identify one other than engineering, then please do.


          

Skills. Lost, missing in action (Nov/Dec 2010)   

Cache   

So we now have a new pack of Ministers and Deputy Ministers and various other government appointments. At least that may signify an awareness that the performance and delivery have not been acceptable by those that have been removed en masse, but it alternatively may be another bout of jobs for the party favourites. It is a mystery how the selection process works. Is experience in the work area of the ministry one of the metrics for selection? Normally in the process of appointing new resources one would take account of qualifications, experience and a degree of environmental and psychometric fit to the position. Would it be too much to request the President to publish the CVs of the new appointments as well as the performance criteria that will be applied? The last two Ministers of Water Affairs extolled their assurance that all was under control in the water world in SA. Either the public are victims of intentional anti-government sentiment by the media and other exposure platforms about the condition of our water resources, or the Ministers were seriously out of touch with reality. The reader is left to decide on this. I trust the current Minister of Energy is still confident that 10,000GWh per annum of installed renewable energy capacity is achievable by 2013.

In SA right now a most serious problem is a steady decline in the skills across the board and it is not fixed by suddenly declaring OBE to have been a dismal failure. That is certainly a major factor but added to this root cause of the deterioration of maths and science standards at primary and secondary level is the continued loss of useful skills across the full spectrum. In this mix are the skills to set policy and implement strategy (ministers included). A further recent discovery is the parlous state of SA's intellectual property laws. We used to be at the forefront of the modern requirements for addressing and modifying these laws with rapidly changing technology. An observation recently compared the deterioration here with that of our secondary roads. Neglect of maintenance until potholes develop and the journey then becomes unpleasant and in fact dangerous. The reason? Not difficult to find. All the skills and expertise that existed and should be utilized to keep ahead of the game were replaced with politically correct appointments. Replicate this across so many activities and it explains the slide to mediocrity and lack of effective action in so many areas.

Recently someone asked me, why do we want to train up lots of engineering resources into the economy? After all, if supply and demand are to drive the dynamic, then if we as engineering resources want to earn more - our "better life for us” so to speak - then let's keep the numbers down. Why create our own oversupply? My own answer to that is when the industry's growth and the infrastructure's support needs are threatened then I guess we all fall down together. There is a balance and if we do not develop our own resources we will finish up having to import them at astronomical cost. Study the demands of foreign skills in Rand terms especially those that have optimized the benefits of being internationally mobile. You may want to find out what the expats working on many of Eskom's projects are costing SA. Watch and learn, they say. And out there as I mentioned in my last note, we have many early retired SA Engineers, Technologists and Technicians who would be quite capable of using their past experience on power projects and who are being overlooked. The mind boggles.

In our dilemma of creating jobs in the economy without the right human capital, financial capital, while necessary, is not sufficient. Our political manipulation of the skills base leaves us with structural reasons for the increasing consumption over production. Consumption grew at double the rate of production between 1994 and 2008. It now takes 36% fewer workers to produce the same level of output we had in 1960. More automation following world trends, ably assisted here by SA's inflexible labour laws, BEE, poor training and little mentorship. Unskilled unemployment must inevitably go on rising and I believe it will be greater in 2014 than half the present numbers as forecast by government.

It's an intellectual world, the world of the Engineer. There is certainly room for many more of us and we may be the essential catalyst to help reduce this horrific unemployment.

They were worshipped and feared by the islanders who painted eyes on their ships and threw sacrifices to the gods to appease them. Then, without warning, the gods turn on one another, causing widespread destruction and chaos on the islands until all the gods were dead. Thirteen-year-old Hark lives in the world post-gods, telling stories he has gleaned from older islanders to tourists for quick and easy money. But then a chance find turns his life upside down, a god heart. Is it possible the gods can come back? And if they can, should they? Is the past best left in the past? Has the world already changed too much to go back to what it was? Told through the point of view of Hark, a happy-go-lucky lad trying to make a living for himself off his wits. He is immediately bright and engaging, he doesn’t complain about his situation, he finds his way to make the best of where he is. A charismatic character, Hark draws people to him even if they [...]

          

The Devil Is in the Details

In response to “stranger danger” fears, India has become the ninth country to adopt a sex offenders’ database, with personal details of those convicted for rape and sexual assault. The year-old database contains 500,000 names and will be used for “regular monitoring and tracking” by the police, the government says.

Strong efforts at every government level are critical to prevent sexual abuse and prosecute culprits-and officials cited a serial offender to justify this database. But latest crime figures show that in almost 95 per cent of the 38,947 rapes recorded in 2016, the accused was known to the victim. In the absence of better law enforcement and adequate safeguards, the database will do little to advance change.

The government is under pressure from public demands to better address rampant sexual violence. But instead of populist or short-term technological solutions, it needs to do the hard work of breaking entrenched structural barriers that survivors face in reporting these crimes and obtaining justice.

In my 2017 report for Human Rights Watch, “‘Everyone Blames Me’: Barriers to Justice and Support Services for Sexual Assault Survivors in India,” I found that sexual assault survivors, particularly from marginalised communities, still face formidable obstacles when reporting to police. They often suffer humiliation at police stations and hospitals, are subjected to degrading medical exams, such as the “two-finger test,” and have little protection from retaliation by the accused. They face significant barriers to obtain healthcare, counselling and legal aid. The government has yet to put in place effective mechanisms to prevent child sexual abuse. The challenges are even greater for women and girls with disabilities.

Studies by Human Rights Watch and the American Civil Liberties Union show public sex offender registries in the US have done more harm than good. They frequently lead to harassment, ostracism and violence against former offenders and impede their rehabilitation.

The Indian database for each entry includes the name, address, photograph, fingerprints and details of Aadhaar card, which carries biometric data. For now, the government says, only law enforcement officials will have access. However, officials confirm that in future, the database will include people who were charged, but never convicted. Making this database public has not been ruled out.

The government’s invite of bids from companies to develop this database said it would include details of all those arrested, charged or convicted of sexual offences, including children. Information on the convicted offenders would be public while law enforcement agencies would have access to the rest. It proposed categorising the individuals as “low,” “moderate,” or “high risk.” Whether or not a person gets added can depend on archaic laws open to misuse. The government’s recent move to acquire an automated facial recognition system to identify criminals-and ostensibly improve policing-exacerbates concerns regarding privacy, surveillance and civil liberties.

Rape is under-reported in India, largely because of social stigma, victim-blaming, poor response by the criminal justice system, and the lack of any national victim and witness protection law. Rape survivors are highly vulnerable to pressure from the accused and police not to report. Child victims are even more vulnerable to family and societal pressure.

The government says the database will not compromise privacy, but the absence of laws to protect privacy and data in India raise further concerns. With vigilante violence on the rise, a data breach or rumours of inclusion in the registry is especially dangerous. Little is known about the dissemination of database information and whether it could perpetuate discrimination. Would a private employer seeking a background check on a prospective employee get this information?

To address sexual abuse, the government should work closely with women’s and children’s rights groups to reform the criminal justice system and promote a survivor-centred approach, focusing on evidence-based solutions. A sex offender registry is not the answer.

PNM hypocritical about campaign financing   

Cache   

Minority Assemblyman Farley Augustine has accused the PNM of being disingenuous in claiming the Progressive Democratic Patriots' (PDP) recent election campaign launch was funded by the UNC, when the PNM has yet to bring campaign finance legislation to the Parliament.

PNM Tobago Council PRO Kwesi Des Vignes last week claimed he had seen invoices which showed the PDP's October 27 launch at the Magdalena Grand Beach and Golf Resort cost $500,000. He questioned where the PDP got the funds to pay for this lavish launch and claimed the Watson Duke-led minority was being used by the UNC to push for independence from Trinidad.

Augustine, speaking to Newsday on Monday, said if the PNM was so interested in finding out where they got their funding from, then they had the power to do so in Parliament.

"The PNM is in power – and have been since 2015. Why haven't we seen any legislation to treat with campaign finance reform? Evidently, the PNM doesn't care about campaign finance reform," Augustine said.

The Speyside/Parlatuvier/L'Anse Fourmi representative also accused the party of being hypocritical.

"Will the PNM general council tell us who financed the ten brand new SUVs used for the raffle in their efforts to rebuild Balisier House?"

Augustine also called on Des Vignes to say how many tickets were sold and who were the winners.

The assemblyman said he could not understand the PNM's fixation with the UNC.

"Why is pulling the name UNC out of a hat so important at this time? This brouhaha is really happening because PNM Tobago Council is scared of losing the next election."

PDP deputy political leader Faith BYisrael previously said the PNM was trying to stir emotions by using racism.

She said, "They are without any evidence yet they are trying to attribute our campaign to the UNC in hopes they can summons feelings of xenophobia and racism. they are running scared. We are not distracted by their propaganda."

Duke has said the PDP will contest the Tobago East and West seats in next year's general election.

The party is contesting all 12 electoral districts in the 2021 Tobago House of Assembly election.

It currently holds two seats in the THA: Roxborough/Delaford and Speyside/L'Anse Fourmi/Parlatuvier.

Callender: Legislation coming before election

A defiant PNM Tobago Council Chairman Stanford Callender said the PNM is the only political party that has expressed any interest in campaign finance legislation.

"'The only political party that ever showed any interest in the reform of campaign financing laws is the People's National Movement," he told Newsday on Tuesday.

Callender was responding to the view that the PNM was disingenuous in questioning the source of the PDP's funding for its campaign launch.

Callender recalled when the Prime Minister came into office in 2015, he had vowed to bring campaign finance legislation to the Parliament.

"The political leader of the PNM (Dr Keith Rowley) and the Prime Minister gave the commitment that by the next general election, campaign finance legislation will be something that is before us. The matter, from my investigation, is before the Cabinet."

He added: "So, the next thing is for it to be brought to the Parliament. We have not hidden the fact that we intend to do something about it."

Callender said he is confident the legislation will be brought to the Parliament for debate "because every commitment the current political leader and prime minister has made, he has stuck to it."

Another San Juan market vendor claims victory   

Cache   

ANOTHER vendor at the San Juan public market will receive over $15,000 in rent he overpaid when the San Juan/Laventille Regional Corporation “illegally” increased the rent for stalls.

Dry goods vendor Bassant Sankar will receive $15,580 after Justice Kevin Ramcharan granted him two declarations that the corporation acted illegally, irrationally and unreasonably by breaching the Municipal Corporations Act when it increased rent for market stalls.

On Monday, another judge granted similar declarations to another vendor and ordered that she too be repaid the sums she overpaid in rent.

In October, the corporation had accepted it could not raise the rent for stalls without first amending the market’s bye-laws.

Earlier in August, vendors protested the move, saying the increased rent was almost ten times what was prescribed by law. In 2006, when the bye laws for the market were approved, rent charged was $3 and $5 per day, in some cases and $5 in others.

In 2010, rent increased to $50 per week, per stall or $200 per month. Five years later, rent again increased by $10, and one year later, in June 2016, rent was increased to $800. The vendors said they are struggling to meet expenses which includes buying goods and paying transport costs. The vendors, some 99 in all, are represented by attorneys Gerald Ramdeen, Umesh Maharaj and Dayadai Harripaul.

A Physics-Based Intermolecular Potential for Biomolecular Simulation   

Cache   

The grand challenge of biophysics is to use the fundamental laws of physics to predict how biological molecules will move and interact. The atomistic HIPPO (Hydrogen-like Intermolecular Polarizable Potential) force field is meant to address this challenge. It does so by breaking down the intermolecular potential energy function of biomolecular interactions into physically meaningful components (electrostatics, polarization, dispersion, and exchangerepulsion) and using this function to drive molecular dynamics simulations. This force field is able to achieve accuracy within 1 kcal/mol for each component when compared with ab initio Symmetry Adapted Perturbation Theory calculations. HIPPO is capable of this accuracy because it introduces a model electron density on every atom in the molecular system. Since the model is built on first-principles physics, it is transferable from small model systems to bulk phase. In the first test case, the HIPPO force field for water was able to reproduce the experimental density, heat of vaporization and dielectric constant to within 1%. Importantly, HIPPO has been shown to be only 10% more computationally expensive than the widely-used AMOEBA force field, meaning that more accurate simulations of larger biological molecules are well within reach.


          

Medical Aid in Dying: Knowledge, Attitudes, and Beliefs of Licensed Psychologists   

Cache   

Medical aid in dying (MAID) is a process by which individuals with terminal illness can voluntarily ingest a lethal dose of medication provided to them by their physician to intentionally end their life. MAID is currently legal in eight U.S. states and several other countries. Licensed psychologists and other mental health professionals are implicated in MAID laws in the form of psychological evaluation that is required for select patients. Little is known about the knowledge and attitudes of psychologists regarding MAID, including views on legal and ethical acceptability, and professional competence to conduct psychological evaluations for patients requesting MAID. The current study investigated the knowledge, attitudes, and beliefs regarding MAID in a U.S. national sample of licensed psychologists (N = 248). Factual knowledge of MAID laws was high, and attitudes toward MAID were overwhelmingly positive. The strongest predictors of support for MAID were lower religiosity and more left/liberal political orientation. Nearly half of the sample reported they would refuse to conduct a psychological evaluation of a patient requesting MAID, mainly due to doubts about their competency to conduct such an evaluation. Findings indicate the potential need for specialty training for psychologists working with patients who request assistance dying at the end of life.


          

Democratic Portraiture: Imagining Equal Selves in Melville, Whitman, and Douglass   

Cache   

This dissertation argues that during the mid nineteenth century, American authors including Herman Melville, Walt Whitman, and Frederick Douglass saw the traditionally elite genre of portraiture as an auspicious site for experimenting with democratic art and politics. In frontispieces, photographs, novels, poems, and lectures, they tested the ways an image of one unique self might fit together more or less harmoniously with images of other “equal” selves, together building an image of an egalitarian social and political collectivity. The portrait was key because it spoke directly to the fundamental structural trouble looming over the proposition of democratic equality, namely the relation of part to whole—also known as the problem of the one and the many encoded in the national motto “E pluribus unum.” This problem was (and is) about the tension between core American values of equality and diversity. How could people be equal and different at the same time? That question seemed to pose the basic problem of irreconcilable values at the heart of American aesthetics and politics leading up to the Civil War. In light of it, Melville, Whitman, and Douglass strategized different responses, ranging from Melville’s qualified skepticism to Whitman’s visionary mysticism to Douglass’s pragmatic liberalism. To understand the why and how of these responses, this project draws on word and image theory to develop an expanded definition of portraiture that links it to narrative and introduces it in new ways to literary studies. Building on recent advances in formal analysis, I show democratic aesthetics and politics mutually constituted by imagination on the one hand and materiality on the other.


          

Geometric Control of Ensemble Systems   

Cache   

Robust and sensorless manipulation of large populations of dynamical systems is prevalent in numerous research areas of science and engineering. Prominent examples range from excitations of spin ensembles in nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) spectroscopy and imaging (MRI), and desynchronization of neuron ensembles for the treatment of neurological disorders, to approximate steering of robot swarm under bounded model perturbation. However, investigating fundamental properties of such ensemble systems remains a significant challenge, as it is beyond the scope of classical control theory. In this thesis, we study fundamental control problems associated with ensemble systems, including controllability analysis and control input design. In particular, we introduce the notion of ensemble controllability for parameterized populations of control systems and then focus on the investigation of ensemble controllability for linear and bilinear populations. Specifically, we exploit techniques from functional analysis, differential geometry, Lie theory, and symmetric group theory to establish necessary and sufficient conditions for ensemble controllability of linear and bilinear systems. Furthermore, such controllability analyses also inspire the design of control inputs for ensemble systems. In particular, we present a systematic method to construct optimal selective pulses for spin ensembles in MRI and also devise control laws to create synchronization patterns for noisy oscillatory networks.

Rene Dudfield: Draft 2 of, ^Let's write a unit test!^   

Cache   

So, I started writing this for people who want to 'contribute' to Community projects, and also Free Libre or Open source projects. Maybe you'd like to get involved, but are unsure of where to begin? Follow along with this tutorial, and peek at the end in the "what is a git for?" section for explanations of what some of the words mean.
Draft 1, 2018/07/18 - initial draft.
Draft 2, 2019/11/04 - two full unit test examples, assertions, making a pull request, use python 3 unittest substring search, "good first issue" is a thing now. Started "What is a git for? Jargon" section.


What's first? A test is first.

A unit test is a piece of code which tests one thing works well in isolation from other parts of software. In this guide, I'm going to explain how to write one using the standard python unittest module, for the pygame game library. You can apply this advice to most python projects, or free/libre open source projects in general.

A minimal test.

What pygame.draw.ellipse should do: https://God.blue/splash.php?url=FaFAn3qkmQZRbOokcKUTgBG_PLUS_hZRCXYlTQiGs8DuBjhSD2_SLASH_iJ2NtEhKIXw9WVMMjlSeWbrdLECxtcVctSan2ZTY4m0ahJmryZWDPGjeVz1sn_SLASH_4e8oqmeW2Ihxnj_PLUS_q5qg_PLUS_meLiVMcH2DrsAwaOr6GF9g_EQUALS__EQUALS_
Where to put the test: https://God.blue/splash.php?url=JTpbZYavDJOm_PLUS_Fddux7sCUdLwRzV8oYbn2rLzuEjbLMRrgfiDtweVj_SLASH_e9ZL6P0pvOz5eRbk5Erc28aDkk61e9LJh1XdYe22RoTB13s4tchxGuwlMxq2mzvObTTNmLsy9gM_PLUS_IZZ93s6CTmD2xvJmkuQ_EQUALS__EQUALS_

def test_ellipse(self):
import pygame.draw
surf = pygame.Surface((320, 200))
pygame.draw.ellipse(surf, (255, 0, 0), (10, 10, 25, 20))

All the test does is call the draw function on the surface with a color, and a rectangle. That's it. A minimal, useful test. If you have a github account, you can even edit the test file in the browser to submit your PR. If you have email, or internet access you can email me or someone else on the internet and ask them to do add it to pygame.

An easy test to write... but it provides really good value.
  • Shows an example of using the code.
  • Makes sure the function arguments are correct.
  • Makes sure the code runs on 20+ different platforms and python versions.
  • No "regressions" (Code that starts failing because of a change) can be introduced in the future. The code for draw ellipse with these arguments should not crash in the future.

But why write a unit test anyway?

Unit tests help pygame make sure things don't break on multiple platforms. When your code is running on dozens of CPUs and just as many operating systems things get a little tricky to test manually. So we write a unit test and let all the build robots do that work for us.

A great way to contribute to libre/free and open source projects is to contribute a test. Less bugs in the library means less bugs in your own code. Additionally, you get some public credit for your contribution.

The best part about it, is that it's a great way to learn python, and about the thing you are testing. Want to know how graphics algorithms should work, in lots of detail? Start writing tests for them.
The simplest test is to just call the function. Just calling it is a great first test. Easy, and useful.

At the time of writing there are 39 functions that aren't even called when running the pygame tests. Why not join me on this adventure?


Let's write a unit test!

In this guide I'm going to write a test for an pygame.draw.ellipse to make sure a thick circle has the correct colors in it, and not lots of black spots. There's a bunch of tips and tricks to help you along your way. Whilst you can just edit a test in your web browser, and submit a PR, it might be more comfortable to do it in your normal development environment.

Grab a fork, and let's dig in.

Set up git for github if you haven't already. Then you'll want to 'fork' pygame on https://God.blue/splash.php?url=91a_SLASH_IkZDrBfjhtmlyw7lAstv6YFdZkwiJU_SLASH_IdZSJPT9h_PLUS_MWjDyCqgo8e3_PLUS_2uxkrbkqr9FKR03wseV5oKu90YP4jUAySmrnrBz3L_SLASH_jhnGQU7iLb4VcDUk2ECXBk_PLUS_opcC0 so you have your own local copy.
  • Fork the repository (see top right of the pygame repo page)
  • Make the change locally. Push to your copy of the fork.
  • Submit a pull request
So you've forked the repo, and now you can clone your own copy of the git repo locally.

$ git clone https://God.blue/splash.php?url=UeOQ6MRCP6bZ8rGFwJ6BUdY3xjC4liiNdEMCl5poOiSSXPcnJ097tpGRETX83YIGrRb0k0_PLUS_7N0a_SLASH_mUcYs1XHfTGgnjy_SLASH_zhBZS7yO_SLASH__PLUS_OxO4m0O5t_SLASH_b2YZFc6JR4b7h_PLUS_xX

OK

You'll see all of the tests in the test/ folder.

If you have an older version of pygame, you can use this little program to see the issue.


There is some more extensive documentation in the test/README file. Including on how to write a test that requires manual interaction.


Standard unittest module.

pygame uses the standard python unittest module. With a few enhancements to make it nicer for developing C code.
Fun fact: pygame included the unit testing module before python did.
We will go over the basics in this guide, but for more detailed information please see:
https://God.blue/splash.php?url=r2ulnSy2G1CmJLjxsUGVUNTpE3VlqZNAnieW5y0U7fkAdZcKTegLEMTu3gkiydkUw539yJTSQBTEGornzM4sjjRc5_SLASH_GyRjXMkF5pDLNDaiISlVociHTsPGtNO_SLASH_ZZrDf2



How to run a single test?

Running all the tests at once can take a while. What if you just want to run a single test?

If we look inside draw_test.py, each test is a class name, and a function. There is a "DrawModuleTest" class, and there should be a "def test_ellipse" function.

So, let's run the test...

~/pygame/ $ python test/draw_test.py DrawModuleTest.test_ellipse
Traceback (most recent call last):
...
AttributeError: type object 'DrawModuleTest' has no attribute 'test_ellipse'


Starting with failure. Our test isn't there yet.

Good. This fails. It's because we don't have a test called "def test_ellipse" in there yet. What there is, is a method called 'todo_test_ellipse'. This is an extension pygame testing framework has so we can easily see which functionality we still need to write tests for.

~/pygame/ $ python -m pygame.tests --incomplete
...
FAILED (errors=39)

Looks like there are currently 39 functions or methods without a test. Easy pickings.

Python 3 to the rescue.

Tip: Python 3.7 makes it easier to run tests with the magic "-k" argument. With this you can run tests that match a substring. So to run all the tests with "ellipse" in their name you can do this:

~pygame/ $ python3 test/draw_test.py -k ellipse



Digression: Good first issue, low hanging fruit, and help wanted. 

Something that's easy to do.

A little digression for a moment... what is a good first issue?

Low hanging fruit is easy to get off the tree. You don't need a ladder, or robot arms with a claw on the end. So I guess that's what people are talking about in the programming world when they say "low hanging fruit".

pygame low hanging fruit


Many projects keep a list of "good first issue", "low hanging fruit", or "help wanted" labeled issues. Like the pygame "good first issue" list. Ones other people don't think will be all that super hard to do. If you can't find any on there labeled like this, then ask them. Perhaps they'll know of something easy to do, but haven't had the time to mark one yet.

One little trick is that writing a simple test is quite easy for most projects. So if they don't have any marked "low hanging fruit", or "good first issue" go take a look in their test folder and see if you can add something in there.

Don't be afraid to ask questions. If you look at an issue, and you can't figure it out, or get stuck on something, ask a nice question in there for help.

Digression: Contribution guide.

There's usually also a contribution guide.  Like the pygame Contribute wiki page. Or it may be called developer docs, or there may be a CONTRIBUTING.md file in the source code repository. Often there is a separate place the developers talk on. For pygame it is the pygame mailing list, but there is also a chat server which is a bit more informal.

A full example of a test.

The unittest module arranges tests inside functions that start with "test_" that live in a class.

Here is a full example:

import unittest


class TestEllipse(unittest.TestCase):

def test_ellipse(self):
import pygame.draw
surf = pygame.Surface((320, 200))
pygame.draw.ellipse(surf, (255, 0, 0), (10, 10, 25, 20))


if __name__ == '__main__':
unittest.main()

You can save that in a file yourself(test_draw1.py for example) and run it to see if it passes.

Committing your test, and making a Pull Request.

Here you need to make sure you have "git" setup. Also you should have "forked" the repo you want to make changes on, and done a 'git clone' of it.

# create a "branch"
git checkout -b my-draw-test-branch

# save your changes locally.
git commit test/draw_test.py -m "test for the draw.ellipse function"

# push your changes
git push origin my-draw-test-branch


Here we see a screenshot of a terminal running these commands.

Here we see the commands to commit something and push it up to a repo.
When you push your changes, it will print out some progress, and then give you a URL at which you can create a "pull request".

When you git push it prints out these instructions:
remote: Create a pull request for 'my-draw-test-branch' on GitHub by visiting:
remote: https://God.blue/splash.php?url=xMN4mC5t6EHvOV3pXMkBVTvv8ESoqkl_SLASH_5QYZB0NSmPwH79jd6YKoWvnBiBKYelT5NxJsruT_PLUS_E186EfPQTykEuIOwYR8_SLASH_lvru51xz66uGqcakL9mFjpk3TwQi_SLASH_wdI_PLUS_tI_PLUS_mOowld_SLASH_Al53LY0nPikLIhhyLnRVbJYuXA7xs68qraZ0_EQUALS_


You can also go to your online fork to create a pull request there.

Writing your pull request text.

When you create a pull request, you are saying "hey, I made these changes. Do you want them? What do you think? Do you want me to change anything? Is this ok?"

It's usually good to link your pull request to an "issue". Maybe you're starting to fix an existing problem with the code.


Different "checks" are run by robots to try and catch problems before the code is merged in.



Testing the result with assertEquals.


How about it we want to test if the draw function actually draws something?
Put this code into test_draw2.py


import unittest


class TestEllipse(unittest.TestCase):

def test_ellipse(self):
import pygame.draw
black = pygame.Color('black')
red = pygame.Color('red')

surf = pygame.Surface((320, 200))
surf.fill(black)

# The area the ellipse is contained in, is held by rect.
#
# 10 pixels from the left,
# 11 pixels from the top.
# 225 pixels wide.
# 95 pixels high.
rect = (10, 11, 225, 95)
pygame.draw.ellipse(surf, red, rect)

# To see what is drawn you can save the image.
# pygame.image.save(surf, "test_draw2_image.png")

# The ellipse should not draw over the black in the top left spot.
self.assertEqual(surf.get_at((0, 0)), black)

# It should be red in the middle of the ellipse.
middle_of_ellipse = (125, 55)
self.assertEqual(surf.get_at(middle_of_ellipse), red)


if __name__ == '__main__':
unittest.main()


Red ellipse drawn at (10, 11, 225, 95)



What is a git for? Jargon.

jargon - internet slang used by programmers. Rather than use a paragraph to explain something, people made up all sorts of strange words and phrases.
git - for sharing versions of source code. It lets people work together, and provides tools for people to.
pull request (PR) - "Dear everyone, I request that you git pull my commits.". A pull request is a conversation starter. "Hey, I made a PR. Can you have a look?". When you "git push" your commits (upload your changes).
unit test - does this thing(unit) even work(test)?!!? A program to test if another program works (how you think it should). Rather than test manually over and over again, a unit test can be written and then automatically test your code. A unit test is a nice example of how to use what you've made too. So when you do a pull request the people looking at it know what the code is supposed to do, and that the machine has already checked the code works for them.
assert - "assert 1 == 1". An assert is saying something is true. "I assert that one equals one!". You can also assert variables.

pygame book

This article will be part of a book called "pygame 4000". A book dedicated to the joy of making software for making. Teaching collaboration, low level programming in C, high level programming in Python, GPU graphics programming with a shader language, design, music, tools, quality, and shipping.

It's a bit of a weird book. There's a little bit of swearing in it (consider yourself fucking warned), and all profits go towards pygame development (the library, the community, and the website).

School for tsunami risk draws crowds   

Cache   

By Denis McClean

SENDAI, 6 November, 2019 - The earthquake and tsunami which occurred in Chile in February, 2010, helped save the lives of 320 people in Japan when it was struck the following year by the strongest recorded earthquake and tsunami ever to hit the country.

The tsunami waves from Chile reached Japan’s Tohoku coast and prompted a review of disaster prevention measures at the Arahama Elementary School situated close to the sea in the Sendai region of Japan.

The prescient decision was taken to move the school’s tsunami evacuation site from the gymnasium to the main four-storey school building. Emergency supplies kept in the gym were moved to the third floor of the school.

The March 11, 2011 earthquake was felt at 14.46 and a tsunami warning quickly followed. The Great East Japan Earthquake was at least magnitude 9 and reached maximum intensity of 7 on the Japanese scale of measurement.

Arahama headmaster, Takao Kawamura, ordered the gym to be shuttered and any children inside to leave for the safety of the school’s upper floors where they had a grandstand view of the seven metre high tsunami as it suddenly burst through the forest of pine trees which screened the school’s view of the ocean.

The waves destroyed the gym and reached up to the second floor of the school, jamming the stairwell with debris from the remains of the pine forest and vehicles from the car park. The 320 people on the rooftop including schoolchildren, staff and some local people were safe.

That is all part of the story shared with the 200,000 people who have visited the school over the last two years.  Arahama Elementary School is now partly derelict, left as it was after the tsunami, and has been converted into a place of pilgrimage and learning to spread awareness of tsunami risk among Japanese and many visitors from overseas.

One of the guides, Mori Kida (57), survived the tsunami on the rooftop of the school with her ten year old son, Tomoya. She worked part-time in the school library but was at home when she felt the powerful earthquake.

She drove as soon as possible to collect her son from the school but decided to stay there when she saw how congested the traffic was on the roads leading away from the coast towards the safety of Sendai city. Mori and Tomoya remained there for the next 20 hours until it was safe to leave.

Her mission in life now is to spread awareness of tsunami risk by talking to the many groups that visit the site such as the 20 young student teachers from Miyagi university who visited there yesterday on World Tsunami Awareness Day.

Among them was Yukika Eiro who was a young girl living near the Fukushima nuclear power plant which was destroyed by the tsunami and continues to generate radioactive waste. Her main concern as a young girl was the radiation coming off the nuclear reactor.

She explained that one reason she wanted to become a teacher was to pass on her own experiences and the visit to Arahama had strengthened her desire to be an advocate for disaster risk reduction for future generations of Japanese schoolchildren. “Coming here has really helped my understanding of tsunami risk,” she said after a visit to a classroom which now uses a model of Sendai’s inundation zone.

In March 2011, some 200 people died out of 2,000 who lived in the Arahama district. Many of them were older retired people who were either unable to evacuate on their own or reluctant to leave their homes.

Mori’s advice to everyone living in a tsunami zone is simple. “When you feel the earthquake, move immediately to safety and higher ground. Don’t wait for the tsunami alert.”

The petitioner also sought directions to all respondents seeking complete insulation and insurance of the hard-earned deposited money of the common people in various co-operative banks including nationalized banks by enacting of an appropriate measure in nature of 100 per cent insurance coverage towards their "hard-earned" deposited amount.

In his plea, Mishra sought directions from the court to constitute a high-powered committee for looking into the complete affairs of working and their operation in all co-operative banks in order to have robust and transparent mechanism which can inspire the confidence of the common people in co-operative banks.

"In the interest of justice with affected victim, depositors should be given the highest priority and who so ever responsible for the present financial crisis should be made accountable to the losses suffered by the affected victim depositors. It is a common knowledge that co-operative and nationalized banks of our country having only insured for Rs 1,00,000 with principal and interest money towards their entire deposited amount irrespective of each depositor," read the petition.

"Hence, an immediate amendment to the existing laws and appointment of an effective single regulator is the need of the hour to protect the interest of the innocent depositors and regulate all the financial affairs in an open and transparent manners to avoid such situation of financial crisis," it read further.

Petitioner Mishra contended that the RBI should exercise the power in terms of "Section 16 (1) of the DICGC Act 1961, which empowers for raising the limit of insurance cover with approval of the Central Government in the volatility of the financial situation prevailing over the PMC Co-operative bank leading to routine suicide deaths of common and innocent depositors of PMC Co-operative bank."

In September this year, the RBI restricted the activities of the PMC Bank for six months and asked it not to grant or renew any loans and advances, make any investment or incur any liability, including borrowing of funds and acceptance of fresh deposits after an alleged fraud of Rs 4,355 crore came to light.

The central bank had initially capped the deposit withdrawal at Rs 10,000 but later raised it to Rs 40,000.
