RoboFont 3.3   


Today we’re proud to announce the official release of RoboFont 3.3, wrapping up all the work which was done since the release of RF 3.2 in January. download RoboFont 3.3 RoboFont 3.3 consolidates the move to Python3 and UFO3: the embedded Python was upgraded to 3.7, the codebase was cleaned up from legacy Python 2 code, and more UFO3 attributes can now be edited by the application. Here’s an overview of the main changes in this release: Interface More colorful The Glyph Editor now supports individual colors for guidelines and anchors, as defined by the UFO3 spec. Guideline colors can be edited in the Inspector with a new Guidelines panel. The Glyph View Preferences now offers separate settings for point, segment, contour and component indexes. More elegant The Accordion widget – used by the Inspector panel, the Batch extension and many other tools – has a new flat style which makes the interface feel lighter and cleaner. More precise The Updates Found window has a new diff view to visualise external changes to glyphs – so you can know exactly where and how your glif data is changing. More quiet RoboFont 3.3 adds support for macOS notifications, which disappear automatically after a few seconds and can be configured in the macOS Preferences. A PostBannerNotification object was also added to mojo.UI, so you can use notifications in your tools too. Read more about the interface updates in the RoboFont 3.3b anouncement. APIs RoboFont 3.3 upgrades the embedded Python from 3.6.5 to 3.7.4 – see What’s New In Python 3.7 for an overview of the latest changes in the language. All embedded modules have also been updated to their latest versions. With the official retirement of Python 2 scheduled for the end of this year, the RoboFont codebase was cleaned-up from legacy py2 code and is now py3 only. The same applies to many core libraries embedded in RF. Goodbye py2, long live py3! (See also the note about extensions containing .pyc files below.) RoboFont now embeds GoogleFont’s ufo2ft and fontmake libraries, providing users an alternative path for generating OpenType and TrueType fonts from UFOs. (Binary fonts are still generated using ufo2fdk and Adobe’s makeotf by default.) As announced in the 3.2 release, ufoLib is now part of fontTools. In RoboFont 3.3, the standalone version of ufoLib is no longer available – so if you use ufoLib in your scripts, make sure to use fontTools.ufoLib instead from now on. Most extensions which use ufoLib have already been updated, let us know if you come across one which hasn’t. The latest update of vanilla adds support for a new positioning mode, auto layout, which uses rules and constraints instead of absolute position and size. This model is a bit more complex, but it’s very powerful: it allows you to build user interfaces that dynamically respond to changes, and makes it (typically) faster and easier to implement revisions in complex interface layouts. See the updated documentation for explanation and examples of the new auto layout methods. Extensions RoboFont 3.3 introduces several new features which will get users and developers of extensions excited. For users The Mechanic 2 extension has undergone a major revision and is now a lot faster – huge thanks to Antonio Cavedoni for this invaluable contribution. The Feature Preview extension has also been partially rewritten and now uses Harfbuzz instead of compositor for shaping. The new version is faster and can handle shaping of non-latin scripts. Here is an overview of new extensions released during the last release cycle: ThemeManager by Andy Clymer & Connor Davenport A tool for reading, writing, and storing custom .roboFontTheme files and switching Glyph View themes. ToolManager & GlyphPalette by Rafał Buchner A special palette to activate/deactivate tools in the Glyph Editor, and a tool to visualize references to glyphs in components. SideBear by Ryan Bugden An Inspector panel to modify the current glyph’s sidebearings. PasteGlyph by Tal Leming An interface for quickly pasting a glyph into the one you are currently drawing. Kern-A-Lytics by Adobe Type Tools A tool for analyzing and fixing kerning consistency across several master fonts. AngleRatioTool by LetteError Shows the ratio between the length of incoming and outgoing sections of BCPs and tangents. Useful in preparing masters for interpolation. GroupSpacing by Gustavo Ferreira A tool to enable group spacing in the Space Center. These previously existing tools are now also available via Mechanic: LetterMeter by Just van Rossum & Peter Biľak A text-analysis tool for comparing multilingual texts and measuring the frequency of particular glyphs. EventObserver by Frederik Berlaen A debugging helper which observes events and displays attributes which are available in the callback info dict. For developers The Extension Folder Spec was udpated to version 3.0, with the addition of an expiration date attribute to enable trial extensions, and support for version-specific lib folders for binary extensions (which means that .pyc-only extensions can now work across different major versions of Python). Also, the ExtensionBuilder supports documentation sources in markdown format now. See the updated Boilerplate extension for examples of these new features. Enjoy RoboFont 3.3! RoboFont 3.3 is the first release which is notarized by Apple, following the new security measures introduced in macOS 10.15. See the RoboFont 3.3 release notes for the full list of changes. Big thanks to all designers and developers who contribute to the continuous improvement of RoboFont!

ARA US Hospitality Trust Announces Acquisition of a Portfolio of Three Premium Marriott-Branded Upscale Select-Service Hotels in the United States   


Nov 06, 2019

SINGAPORE, Nov 6, 2019 - (ACN Newswire) - ARA US Hospitality Trust ("ARA H-Trust") is pleased to announce that it has today entered into a conditional purchase and sales agreement to acquire a portfolio of three Marriott-branded upscale select-service hotels in the United States for US$84.5 million. The three freehold properties are located within the markets of Raleigh, North Carolina and San Antonio, Texas, that benefit from diversified demand from nearby corporations, universities and leisure attractions.

The accretive acquisition at a net property income yield of 8.0% is expected to increase ARA H-Trust's pro forma distribution income from the listing date on 9 May 2019 to 30 September 2019 by US$1.4 million, translating to a rise in distribution per stapled security from 3.13 US cents to 3.38 US cents assuming the acquisition was completed on listing date. The acquisition will be funded primarily with debt and by internal cash resources. Following this acquisition, ARA H-Trust's portfolio will grow to 41 hotels with 5,340 guest rooms geographically diversified throughout 22 states in the United States.

Mr Lee Jin Yong, the Chief Executive Officer of the Managers, said, "This acquisition demonstrates our ability to execute third-party transactions at an attractive yield in the world's largest lodging market. We will continue to explore acquisition opportunities to further diversify our portfolio by location and by brand, and most importantly to enhance stapled securityholders' returns."

DBS Bank Ltd. ("DBS") was the Sole Issue Manager for the Offering (the "Sole Issue Manager"). DBS, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited and United Overseas Bank Limited were the Joint Financial Advisers and Joint Global Coordinators for the Offering (collectively, the "Joint Financial Advisers and Joint Global Coordinators"). DBS, Oversea-Chinese Banking Corporation Limited, United Overseas Bank Limited and Credit Suisse (Singapore) Limited were the Joint Bookrunners and Underwriters for the Offering (collectively, the "Joint Bookrunners and Underwriters").

Mr Lee added, "We are excited with the addition of this high quality freehold portfolio which will broaden our earnings base with diversified and increased net property income. The portfolio has outperformed its competitive set recording RevPAR indices between 120% to 146%. The superior revenue per available room (RevPAR) performance will contribute robust, stable cashflows to our bottom-line. In addition, the acquisition will affiliate ARA H-Trust with Marriott, a leading global hotel brand, and Concord Hospitality, a well-regarded, experienced hotel developer and operator in the US. The new relationship with Concord is expected to broaden our network to source future accretive acquisitions."

The portfolio consists of AC by Marriott Raleigh North Hills, Courtyard San Antonio at The Rim and Residence Inn San Antonio at The Rim.

AC by Marriott Raleigh North Hills is the newest hotel within the heart of Raleigh's North Hills - one of Raleigh/Durham's premier live-work-play destinations. North Hills is a mixed-use development that contains more than 1 million square feet of office space, with notable tenants such as PwC, KPMG and Bank of America, plus retail, entertainment, and residences.

IMH, Duke-NUS and Neeuro Pilot Home-Based Brain-Training Game to Help Children with ADHD   


Nov 06, 2019

• Researchers at IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR have developed an advanced brain-computer interface technology that harnesses machine learning to personalise brain-training for children with ADHD.
• Partnering local tech start-up, Neeuro, the researchers are rolling out a pilot home-based intervention programme for children with ADHD undergoing treatment at IMH. The take-home kit comprises a wireless headband and a Samsung tablet with the pre-loaded game.
• Extensive clinical testing through a large-scale randomised clinical trial of the game-based brain-training programme found improvements in the attention span of children with ADHD.

Singapore, 6 November 2019 --( ASIA TODAY )-- A first-of-its-kind personalised, interactive brain-training game will soon be helping children with Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD) improve their attention span. The unique selling point of this technology is that children with ADHD can participate in this programme from home. A pilot run for the home-based programme will be launched for 20 children, aged 6-12 years, who are currently receiving treatment for ADHD at the Institute of Mental Health (IMH).

The game, called CogoLand1, was developed through a decade’s worth of extensive research, utilising Brain-Computer Interface (BCI) technology that incorporates machine-learning algorithms to personalise attention training, with the hope of complementing mainstay ADHD treatment. The use of CogoLand to complement ADHD treatment is the result of a collaboration between IMH, Duke-NUS Medical School and A*STAR’s Institute for Infocomm Research (I2R). Neeuro Pte Ltd, a local tech startup and spinoff from A*STAR, is the current sole licensee of the technology.

This non-invasive ADHD intervention programme was the subject of a large scale randomised clinical trial funded by the National Medical Research Council, involving 172 children with ADHD in Singapore.2 Associate Professor Lee Tih Shih, from Duke-NUS’ Neuroscience and Behavioural Disorders programme and Principal Investigator of the large scale clinical trial, commented: “Our patented, personalised intervention using advanced BCI technology has shown very promising and robust results, and we hope it can benefit many children with ADHD in the future.”

Furthermore, Functional Magnetic Resonance Imaging (fMRI) scans of a subset of the children, led by Associate Professor Juan Helen Zhou, also from Duke-NUS, showed positive post-training effects observed in brain areas associated with attention and task-orientation.3 The patented technology was summarised by Professor Guan Cuntai, technical lead of the system and scientific advisor to Neeuro: “Our technology can accurately quantify a person’s attention level in real-time using a machine learning algorithm and, from there, develop a unique patented personalised training programme using a feed-forward concept for cognitive training. Further improvements have been made in recent iterations by capitalising on the latest deep learning approaches with our large dataset.” Professor Guan was also the Principal Scientist who led the BCI research when he was part of A*STAR’s I2R.

Dr Lim Choon Guan, Deputy Chief of the Department of Developmental Psychiatry at IMH said: “While medication and behavioural therapy are effective in treating symptoms of ADHD in children, some parents are also keen to explore other approaches that can help their children to improve their concentration. After a decade of collaborative work, our team is very excited to pilot this home-based brain-training game which parents can use to help their children regulate themselves.” The home-based programme will see the 20 children each receive a take-home kit that includes Neeuro’s brainwave-reading SenzeBand and a Samsung tablet with the preloaded CogoLand game, which they will use following a prescribed regimen for the duration of the programme. This approach is intended to be a complement and/or supplement to conventional ADHD treatment.

According to Dr. Alvin Chan, CEO and Co-Founder of Neeuro, “At Neeuro, our aim is to utilise technology to enable positive change in the neurological agility and fitness of our users. We are privileged to be working with institutions such as IMH, Duke-NUS and A*STAR, in conjunction with our hardware partner Samsung, to explore the use of cutting-edge technology in order to achieve this aim. It is our hope that this trial paves the way to enable the progressive development of new complementary options that will bring about positive outcomes for the millions of children afflicted with ADHD globally, especially those in Singapore.”

Mr Philip Lim, CEO of A*STAR’s innovation and enterprise office A*ccelerate, said: “It is always fulfilling when homegrown technologies are translated into meaningful outcomes. We are proud to be a part of Neeuro’s journey, and A*STAR will continue supporting entrepreneurial companies like them to grow and innovate.”

Housing developer eyeing Beloit Town Hall site   


A housing developer is looking to potentially build on a site currently occupied by the Beloit Town Hall.

Town Administrator Gene Wright said developers approached him with the idea of buying the hall, and the 14 acres it sits on, in the last two weeks.

"We weren't expecting it, we didn't have anything on the market or anything like that," Wright said.

The town hall building has sat vacant for the last several months, as employees were moved to the Town of Beloit Fire Station due to the hall's conditions.

Changes could be coming soon to the Town of Beloit Town Hall site. A developer has approached the town about buying all 14 acres, including the town hall itself.

The latest, on #News3Now at 4 and 5. @WISCTV_News3

— Adam Duxter (@News3Adam) November 6, 2019

"Right now we do need something, we've got approximately five or six employees working out of the fire department that's not designed for that type of set up," Wright said. "Any future growth in areas, we don't have it."

On Monday, Wright took the proposal to the town board. Next, he says, they'll work to set up a meeting with the potential developer to go over specifics. Should a deal be reached, Wright says he anticipates they'd begin working quickly.

He said the group is looking to build several duplexes, and other multiunit housing projects. While the town would still be without a town hall for the foreseeable future, Wright said it would be a benefit to sell the current building.

"We could be looking at a couple million dollar project on the tax roll, instead of an abandoned building that we're maintaining with no income coming in," he said.

Enhanced graphics killed off mmorpgs   


The modern era of graphics did us in.  Cost of everything had skyrocketed.

Who's at fault:
-The selfish population that insist on great visuals.
-Developers for degrading the experience of deep rich gaming for eye candy. 

mmorpg's are hard to make. WITHOUT GOING INTO DETAIL, mmorpgs feel the pain the most.  All Triple A gaming is feeling it too.

Were our worst enemy...... You can't pump out large content and make it look good, bottom line.  If you clam bullshit, I want a game that looks great, well you made your choice "nothing". 

Selfish and pleasing the selfish.

Using Asserts in Embedded Systems   


By using asserts proactively in embedded systems on debug and production builds, developers can both prevent more bugs before shipping and quickly surface and fix them after shipping. Proper assert handling is also the safest way to handle issues and undefined behavior that occur in production. In this post, we’ll go over best practices with asserts, when to use asserts, and then come up with a production ready custom assert implementation for an ARM Cortex-M device, all while keeping the code size usage to a minimum.

2-French Electrophysiology Catheter Introduced by Baylis Medical

A comparison between the EPstar 2F and 6F catheters from Baylis.

October 31, 2019 — Baylis Medical announced the first North American use of its EPstar Fixed Electrophysiology Catheters. The EPstar catheters make available the smallest diagnostic catheter in the North American electrophysiology market, allowing physicians to reach previously inaccessible areas of the heart for procedure mapping.

The EPstar catheter family includes a 2 French (F) catheter and a 6F guiding catheter which can be combined to allow deeper coronary sinus (CS) mapping. Deeper electrophysiological examination, including mapping, is often required to aid in the diagnosis of idiopathic ventricular tachycardias, complex atrial tachycardias, and left Wolff-Parkinson-White Syndrome. The 2F catheter also allows mapping and pacing in smaller anatomy such as the Vein of Marshall (VOM).

Miguel Valderrabano, M.D., director of cardiac electrophysiology at Houston Methodist Hospital, was the first North American physician to use the EPstar 2F catheter in a clinical procedure.

“Mapping of the coronary sinus is essential to determine an accurate diagnosis for several cardiac conditions. However, it becomes a challenge as you reach further into coronary sinus small branches, which cannot be reached with conventional catheters,” Valderrabano said. “The availability of a 2F catheter allows us to reach into those smaller areas of the CS and VOM, as well as the anterior interventricular vein at its small branches, to achieve an accurate diagnosis.”

The 2F catheter features a flexible, atraumatic tip, and low energy pacing from the distal electrode. It can be delivered through any venous access point, enabling physicians to tailor their procedure to patient anatomy.

The 6F guiding catheter features two electrode spacing options to tailor the devices to a given procedure and includes a fully braided shaft, providing physicians with greater torque control. The 6F catheter also includes a lumen to allow visualization of coronary sinus anatomy, and is inserted via superior vein access.

The EPstar catheters are launched in partnership with Japan Lifeline (JLL), a leading Japanese cardiovascular device developer and manufacturer. The EPstar catheters are widely used in the Japanese electrophysiology market.

The EPstar catheters are expected to launch in the United States in early 2020.

دلایل افت رتبه سایت در گوگل   


رتبه سایت


افت رتبه سایت در گوگل ممکن است به دلایل مختلفی به وجود بیاید. دانستن این دلایل به شما کمک می‌کند تا بتوانید دوباره رتبه سایت خود را ارتقا داده یا اگر هنوز دچار افت نشده‌اید از این اتفاق جلوگیری کنید. پایین آوردن رتبه سایت می‌تواند علل مختلفی از جمله کم شدن بازدید از سایت، افت تعداد ورودی‌ها از گوگل، پنالتی شدن سایت یا ... دارد که در ادامه با مهمترین آنها آشنا خواهید شد.

دلایل افت رتبه سایت در گوگل

همان طور که اشاره شد افت رتبه سایت می‌تواند علت های مختلفی داشته باشد اما مهمترین این علل عبارتند از: 


  • سایت شما فاقد لینک سازی داخلی مناسب است

لینک دهی داخلی برای گوگل بسیار اهمیت دارد و اگر نتوانید از این مورد به خوبی استفاده کنید، صفحات سایت شما با افت جایگاه در گوگل مواجه خواهند شد. شما باید بتوانید مقالات داخل سایت خود را به هم مرتبط کنید و کاربر را تشویق نمایید که از صفحه‌ای وارد صفحه دیگر در سایت شما شود.  البته توجه داشته باشید که نتیجه لینک دهی را در طولانی مدت مشاهده خواهید کرد و به طور میانگین 3 ماه طول می‌کشد تا لینک دهی مناسب صفحات سایت موجب ارتقا جایگاه صفحه در گوگل شود. 

برای لینک دهی باید در متن مقاله کلمات کلیدی مقاله مقصد را یافته و با لینک دهی بر روی آن به طور طبیعی بین دو مقاله ارتباط برقرار کنید.  مراقب باشید که در این کار دچار افراط و تفریط نشوید. لینک سازی بیش از حد یا غیر طبیعی می‌تواند از طرف گوگل نوعی تقلب به حساب بیاید و نه تنها باعث ارتقا رتبه سایت نشده که جریمه نیز در پی داشته باشد.


  • بک لینک کافی یا مناسب ندارید

شما می‌توانید با خرید بک لینک در کوتاه مدت رتبه سایت خود را ارتقا دهید. پس بک لینک‌ها با توجه به کمیت وکیفیتشان می‌توانند بر روی رتبه سایت شما تاثیر بگذارند. اما نکته‌ای که اینجا باید مورد توجه قرار بگیرد این است که بالا بردن رتبه سایت با خرید بک لینک‌های متعدد کم دوام است و در عین حال می‌تواند موجب جریمه شدن سایت از طرف گوگل شود، بنابراین برای داشتن تاثیر ماندگار لازم است بک لینک طبیعی و قانونی دریافت کنید. دریافت بک لینک معتبر و به شکل طبیعی مانع افت رتبه سایت در گوگل خواهد شد. 


  • سرعت سایت شما پایین است

یکی از مهمترین عواملی که موجب بالا رفتن رتبه سایت در گوگل می‌شود، سرعت بالای سایت است. اگر سایت شما در مقایسه با سایت‌های مشابه دارای سرعت بارگذاری کمتری باشد، کاربر ترجیح می‌دهد سایت شما را ترک کرده و جستجوی خود را در جای دیگر با سرعت بالاتر ادامه دهد. از آنجا که گوگل رفتار کاربر را به خوبی تحلیل می‌کند، این تجربه کاربر را نشانه عدم رضایت دانسته و سایت‌هایی را برای نمایش در اولویت قرار می‌دهد که سرعت بالاتری دارند. برای سنجش سرعت سایت خود و بهبود آن می‌توانید از جی تی متریکس یا ابزار رایگان Google Page Speed استفاده کنید.

  • عناوین محتواهای سایت برای کاربر جذاب نیستند

وقتی که کاربری یک کلمه کلیدی را در گوگل جستجو می‌کند، صفحات متنوع با عناوین مختلف برای او نمایش داده می‌شوند. یک از مهمترین عوامل برای کلیک بر روی یک صفحه خاص عنوان جذاب محتوای صفحه است. شما می‌توانید با مراجعه به گوگل وبمستر تولز نرخ کلیک (CTR) صفحات سایت خود را ببینید که نسبت تعداد کلیک کاربران روی لینک سایت شما به تعداد کل بازدیدها را نشان می‌دهد. نرخ کلیلک پایین به این معناست که احتمالا نتوانسته‌اید کاربر را برای ورود به سایت جذب کنید. از منظر گوگل این یک نکته منفی بوده و موجب افت رتبه سایت شما خواهد شد. برای جلوگیری از این امر با کمک گوگل ترندز (Google Trends) کلمات کلیدی محبوب که مرتبط با حوزه کاری شماست را یافته و محتوایی که بر اساس آن می‌نویسید را با یک عنوان جذاب منتشر کنید. یک عنوان خوب مطابق با نیاز و سلیقه مخاطب و مرتبط با محتوای تهیه شده است و می‌تواند با افزایش نرخ کلیک، رتبه فعلی سایت را ارتقا دهد.  


  • محتوای سایت شما به روز نیست

یکی از دلایل افت رتبه سایت در گوگل محتواهای قدیمی و از رده خارج است، چرا که گوگل برای محتواهای تازه ارزش زیادی قائل است. سرعت انتشار اطلاعات تازه هر روز بیشتر از قبل می‌شود و شما برای حفظ جایگاه خود و عقب نماندن از رقبا باید محتواهای خود را هر چند ماه یک بار به روزرسانی کرده و از محتواهای قدیمی سایت‌تان غافل نشوید. برای این که محتواهای قدیمی سایت خود را به روزرسانی کنید، می‌توانید یک فایل صوتی یا ویدئویی به آن اضافه کرده یا یکی دو پاراگراف متن جدید برای آن بنویسید و سپس با به اشتراک گذاری محتوای خود در شبکه‌های اجتماعی و جذب کاربران به آن صفحه، گوگل را نسبت به تغییر محتوای خود آگاه نمایید.  


  • مخاطب سایت شما را نمی پسندد

به یاد داشته باشید که امروز با گسترش بی رویه تلفن‌های هوشمند تعداد کاربران موبایلی اینترنت بسیار بیشتر از کاربرانی است که با لپتاپ یا کامپیوترهای خانگی در گوگل جستجو می‌کنند و اگر مخاطبی که با تلفن همراه وارد سایت شما می‌شود تجربه کاربری مناسبی کسب نکرده یا با سرعت پایین برای بارگذاری مواجه شود با نارضایتی از سایت خارج خواهد شد و گوگل با توجه به رفتار کاربر رتبه سایت شما را پایین خواهد آورد. وب سایت‌های مورد علاقه گوگل، سایت‌های موبایل فرندلی هستند و ریسپانسیو بودن سایت (سایت واکنشگرا) برای ارتقا رتبه سایت از اهمیت زیادی برخوردار است.


به طور کلی می‌توان نتیجه گرفت که رفتار کاربر در قبال آنچه شما در سایت خود ارائه می‌دهید تا حد زیادی تعیین می‌کند که گوگل چه جایگاهی برای سایت شما و صفحاتتان در گوگل قائل شود. همان طور که مشاهده کردید اکثر دلایل افت رتبه سایت در گوگل عدم رضایت کاربر از تجربه‌ای است که هنگام بازدید از سایت شما به دست می‌آورد. ما می‌توانیم جهت بهبود رتبه سایت‌تان، همچنین تولید محتوای سئو شده به شما یاری رسانیم. با ما در تماس باشید...


Sky Rezidence Bohdalec   


O projektu: V Praze 10 na Bohdalci pod bohdaleckým kopcem se rodí nové bydlení v podobě Sky Rezidence Bohdalec. Jde o bydlení typu Sky House, které je zároveň energeticky úsporné. Dva nové domy s osmi nadzemními podlažími v sobě bude ukrývat celkem 58 nových bytů, a to s plošnými dispozicemi od 1+kk až po 3+kk, přičemž výměra bytů činí od 30,3 do 86,7 m2. Nebudou chybět ani celkem čtyři obchodní prostory , všechny se budou nacházet v prvním nadzemním podlaží. Soukromí a klid zajistí okna situovaná do privátního vnitrobloku a balkony a terasy i různá intimní zákoutí.

Odstínění hluku z rušné dopravní křižovatky zajistí přístupové chodby. V prvním podzemním a prvním nadzemním podlaží vzniknou parkovací stání a sklepní kóje, parkovacích stání je k dispozici celkem 65, sklepních kójí 59. Dokončení výstavby objektů je naplánováno na červenec 2021. Projekt vzniká pod dozorem developera Bohdalecká Project Development.

Lokalita: Roh ulic Bohdalecká a U Plynárny je významnou dopravní křižovatkou na Praze 10 a právě zde roste nový developerský projekt Sky Rezidence Bohdalec. Jak již bylo uvedeno, hlavní devizou obytného komplexu je hlavně výborná dopravní dostupnost, kdy stanice tramvaje je ani ne minutu chůze od domu, přes ulici je pak další autobusová zastávka, kde staví hned několik autobusů mířících jak do centra, tak i ven do okrajových částí města. Velkou výhodou je navíc dostupnost obchodů, hned naproti areálu se nachází supermarket Kaufland, jednu stanici autobusem se nalézá Obchodní centrum Eden, kde kromě supermarketu Tesco najdete také celou řadu dalších obchodů. V neposlední řadě je velkou výhodou i blízkost výjezdu na Jižní spojku a dálnici D1, takže pokud často jezdíte ven z Prahy tímto směrem a uvažujete o novém bydlení, jde o vhodnou investici. Blízko se nacházejí i sportoviště, ať již plavecký bazén na Slavii v Edenu nebo areál s tenisovými kurty u Hamerského rybníka.

Sport, relax, příroda: Ve vzdálenosti 2,8 km vás očekává Plavecký stadion Slavia, kam si můžete jít pravidelně zaplavat. Milovníkům fotbalu jistě nemusíme představovat 2 km vzdálený Sinobodo Stadion. Blízko najdete i dostatek přírody, hezké okolí k procházkách nabízí 1,8 km vzdálený Hamerský rybník. Sportovní areál Hamr, rozkládající se 2,8 km daleko vám nabídne k využití tenisové kurty. Na delší, například celodenní výlet do přírody, se můžete vydat do Kunraticko-michelského lesa v dosahu 6,1 km.

Nákupy a služby: Přímo přes ulici, jenom 274 metrů se nalézá supermarket Kaufland do kterého můžete vyrazit na nákupy potravin a dalšího zboží. Pouhých 1,9 km je umístěno Nákupní centrum Eden a v něm hypermarket Tesco Extra i celá řada dalších obchodů.

Vzdělávání: Vaše malé ratolesti přijme MŠ U Roháčových kasáren, která se nalézá 2,7 km od obytného souboru. Starší děti pak mohou navštěvovat ZŠ U Roháčových kasáren 2,8 km od rezidence. Další možností je 2,5 km vzdálená ZŠ Na Chodovci.

Kultura: Za zajímavými filmy můžete vyrazit do 3,7 km vzdáleného Kina Pilotů. Na již zmiňovaném Sinobodo Stadionu se kromě sportovních utkání odehrávají také koncerty velkých světových hudebních hvězd. Navštívit můžete také 3 km vzdálené Vršovické divadlo MANA, které nabízí dobrý kulturní program.
Zdravotnictví: Blízko, jenom 2,6 km ordinuje poliklinika Vršovická zdravotní, kde narazíte na praktické lékaře i specialisty.

Doprava: Stanice tramvaje Chodovská se nalézá 170 m od budovy. Pouhý 1 km od rezidence leží výjezd na Jižní spojku. Celkem 4 km je dlouhá cesta k nájezdu na dálnici D1. Jenom 3,2 km od obytného komplexu najdete železniční stanici Praha-Vršovice.

Byty Mílová   


O projektu: Byty Mílová jsou novým developerským projektem budovaným na Praze 4 v Libuši. Rodí se zde nový bytový dům s šesti nadzemními podlažími a celkem 54 byty o různých dispozicích od menších 1+kk až po velkoryse řešené 4+kk. Podlahovou plochou se byty pohybují od 29,4 m2 až po 111,3 m2. U žádného z bytů navíc nechybí buď balkon nebo terasa, u bytů v prvním nadzemním podlaží jsou k dispozici předzahrádky. Zároveň v ceně většiny bytů je i parkovací stání.

Architekti také brali ohled na to, aby dům dokonale zapadl do celkové bytové zástavby v okolí, tedy aby navázal jak na sousední činžovní domy, tak i na nedaleké domy rodinné. Zároveň jde o úsporný bytový dům, který obdržel energetický štítek skupiny B. Dokončení projektu je naplánováno na konec června 2021. Novostavba vzniká pod developerským vedením společnosti Central Group.

Lokalita: Hlavní předností nového developerského projektu Mílová, který vzniká v ulici Mílová v Praze 4-Libuši je kombinace pohodové maloměstské atmosféry s příjemnými podmínkami pro klidné bydlení s dostatkem soukromí a výborné dopravní dostupnosti a občanské vybavenosti.

Ačkoli projekt vzniká ve čtvrti, která je považována za okrajovou, doprava do centra města je zde na mimořádně vysoké úrovni. Jenom kousek od domu se nachází zastávka autobusu. Těžit budete i z dostatečné blízkosti zeleně, protože nedaleko se nacházejí přírodní zákoutí vhodná k odpočinku, a to Krčský, respektive Kunraticko.michelský les a Modřanská rokle. Zároveň jde o ideální místo k bydlení pro rodiny s dětmi, protože v nedaleko narazíte na několik škol.

Sport, relax, příroda: V těsné blízkosti jsou i sportovní příležitosti pro vaše nejmenší, 1,4 km vzdálený Krytý bazén - Centrum dětského plavání MAGIC CASTLE KUNRATICE. Ve stejné vzdálenosti, tedy rovněž 1,4 km, narazíte i na sportovní vyžití pro dospělé, a to Golf Club Tvrz. Milovníky kulatého míče nadchne fotbalový klub FCS Libuš, který působí 1,4 km od rezidenčního souboru. Pro delší výlety, ale i pro běhání nebo jízdu na kole je jako stvořený Kunraticko-michelský les, nalézající se 2,8 km daleko. Dalším rozsáhlým parkem pro různé venkovní aktivity a odpočinek je 3,6 km vzdálená Modřanská rokle. Také Zámecký park Kunratice, ke kterému vede cesta dlouhá 1,7 km, na vás dýchne zelenou pohodou, je velmi příjemným místem k relaxaci. V létě můžete využít přírodní koupaliště Rybník Šeberák, nacházející se 2,6 od novostavby.

Nákupy a služby: Výborně dostupné je Obchodní centrum Kunratice, kde můžete nakoupit potraviny i další zboží, vzdáleno od novostavby je jenom 885 m. Na nákup můžete také vyrazit do Tržnice SAPA nacházející se 1,5 km od obytného komplexu.

Vzdělávání: Pouhých 215 m od rezidenčního objektu přijme vaše malé děti MŠ K Lukám. Také ZŠ je velice blízko, jenom 624 m najdete Wonderland Academy pro starší děti.

Kultura: Za kulturními příležitostmi musíte do centra města, zde se jich mnoho nenachází, tím nejbližším je 4 km vzdálené Kulturní centrum Novodvorská, kde probíhají například koncerty nebo různé kurzy. Dále je to je 8,2 km vzdálené kino Cinema City Chodov. Na rozmanitá divadelní představení můžete vyrazit do 9,8 km vzdáleného Branického divadla.

Zdravotnictví: Zázemí zdravotní péče v podobě ordinací praktických lékařů najdete v Ošetřovatelské poliklinice Thomayerovy nemocnice.

Doprava: Doslova za rohem, 261 m od objektu je autobusová zastávka Mílová, ze které odjíždí několik autobusových linek do centra města. Výborný je také výjezd autem, protože jenom 920 m se nalézá křižovatka Vídeňské a Dobronické ulice. Po Vídeňské můžete zamířit jak směrem ven z města, tak na druhou stranu k Thomayerově nemocnici a dál pokračovat do centra Prahy.

In The 1920s, 1 In 3 Eligible Men In Dallas Were KKK Members    


In the beginning of the 20th century, the Ku Klux Klan ruled much of Dallas — one in three men in the city were members of the white supremacist group.

It was a dark period of the KKK dominating civic life — and a chapter that the city of Dallas has never fully examined, says Michael Phillips, a historian at Collin College outside Dallas and author of “White Metropolis: Race, Ethnicity, and Religion in Dallas, 1841-2001.”

The KKK gained control of the city in the 1920s after a Dallas dentist, Hiram Wesley Evans, overthrew the founder of what was known as the “Second Klan,” he says.

“The KKK ran Dallas, and it became the epicenter of the movement,” Phillips says.

Dallas rising as the center of the KKK movement was bound to happen, Phillips says.

At the time, Texas was a state beset by an “extraordinary level of racist violence,” he says.

“Between the 1880s and the 1930s, there were at least 349 African Americans lynched in Texas,” he says. “It was the third-highest number in the entire union, and it’s only behind Georgia and Mississippi in those years. So there’s an atmosphere there anyway.”

“Well, we have to be clear on the motives, though, because the Dallas Morning News institutionally is very proud of its opposition to the Klan. And, you know, the press would cover floggings that took place, but what the Morning News was worried about was not racism. The Morning News in one editorial said, ‘White supremacy is not imperiled.’ They were worried about the lawlessness of the Klan and how that would affect the bottom line for Dallas business-wise. And also, they were worried about what they saw as a potential radicalism. And that’s one of the crazy things about the Morning News’ view of the Klan.

“What happened was when the Klan started, the first people they would recruit are people in the upper echelon — economic elites, business elites, etc. — and they’d work their way down because it was a pyramid scheme. People would get a percentage of membership fees. As they began to get to the working class, that’s when the Morning News was alarmed, and in fact, the Morning News tried to portray the Klan, which is a far-right organization, as potentially a left-wing organization. And they said, ‘Word on the streets is the Klan is red. The Klan is communist,’ which is an absurdity.”

On the Dallas Morning News being more concerned with social order than racism

“Racism was not a concern. They made it very clear in their editorial pages what they were worried about is social order. And one of the themes in Dallas history is this terror of not just African Americans, but also of the white working class and the ability to control this. And this will come out decades later when Dallas schools are ordered desegregated in 1961. They put together — and the Morning News is involved in this effort and the other major media outlets — this propaganda film. They hire Walter Cronkite from CBS News to narrate it. And the premise of the film is we know we have all these troublemakers out in the working class, and we know who you are and we’ll come after you if you cause trouble when the schools are desegregated. Actually, Dallas schools desegregated peacefully in 1961, but there was this panic that this working class can’t be controlled.

“And this is a time, the 1920s, 1930s, Dallas is industrializing. It’s a banking center. And you actually have union activism at a level most people don’t associate with the South. There was a Ford plant. We have a garment workers’ strike in the 1930s in Dallas. And so the Dallas Morning News, which was a voice of elites, was more worried about disorder from the people of working class origins. They conditionally accepted the Jewish community in Dallas. They conditionally accepted people who they saw as marginally white. They were not worried about oppression of black people at all because Dallas was a very highly segregated city and its police department was filled with Klansmen. And when Dallas police officers shot African Americans, they were not concerned with that. They were more concerned about social order and how they would affect outside investment.”

On the KKK fighting for anti-immigrant policies in Dallas

“It’s a good thing The Dallas Morning News opposed the KKK. I don’t think anyone would argue with that at all. But I think the motive may not be as pure, and in fact, it had to do with class politics as well as with racial politics. And the Morning News was definitely the voice of the real estate developers, the bankers, the oil money, etc. Also, the Klan was an anti-immigrant organization. And at that point in Texas — and of course, people in Dallas are heavily invested still in the cotton production industry — Texas had lobbied successfully the U.S. Congress to give an exemption when they passed this really strict anti-immigration bill in 1924, the Johnson-Reed Act. There was an exemption for Mexican immigration because they were using Mexicans and Mexican Americans as cheap sources of labor in the fields. That would be another motive because the Klan just wanted to shut the border completely. That created a threat to the economic interests of the big landowners in Texas. So it’s complicated.

“I think the picture you have an obvious set of villains, the Klan, but the heroes are more complicated in their motives than I think the way Dallas remembers it. And that’s the thing is Dallas is hostile to remembrance of history. White people in Texas are afraid they are going to pay a price for their oppression. What Sigmund Freud would have called projection. This explains, for instance, why police often respond violently to unarmed African Americans in the state. And I think there’s a great deal of denial still. Dallas is a laboratory of forgetfulness. And I think that lack of knowledge of Dallas’s very troubled racial past has made it blind to the circumstances, the number of shootings we have in this city still of unarmed black and brown people and the underlying economic injustice that shapes a city that still frames the racial tensions we have here.”

TypeScript 3.7 arrives with optional chaining   


TypeScript 3.7, the latest version of Microsoft’s typed superset of JavaScript, is now generally available. The new production release features optional chaining, an ECMAScript feature that allows developers to stop running expressions if they encounter a null or undefined value. 

Optional chaining uses a new ?. operator for optional property accesses. Also included are two other operations: optional element access, for accessing non-identifier properties such as numbers and arbitrary strings, and optional call, for conditionally calling expressions if they are not null or undefined.

Top 5 takeaways for developers from Microsoft Ignite 2019   


Microsoft’s annual Ignite conference has usually catered to IT professionals, with a focus on servers, applications, and management tooling. That’s not the case this year, with developers getting a much larger slice of the pie.

It’s not surprising, really. Microsoft’s transition to cloud behemoth is almost complete, and the modern hybrid cloud needs code that can take advantage of Azure’s hyper-scale platform. There were so many developer announcements that they ended up getting their own separate keynotes, one for Azure and one that brought Windows and Office together under the umbrella of Microsoft 365.

What were the biggest announcements for developers at Microsoft Ignite 2019? I’ll explore the top five below.

.NET Framework APIs that won’t be coming to .NET 5.0   


Microsoft’s shift to a new .NET is nearly complete. .NET Core 3.0 is here, and it’s the foundation for next year’s big bang release of .NET 5.0. That’s when .NET Core becomes the main development branch for all of .NET, and the old .NET Framework slides off into a well-deserved retirement and a very long support lifecycle.

That doesn’t mean all your existing .NET code will run on .NET 5.0. To be honest, odds are it won’t. This is the new Microsoft, not the old, and keeping legacy code alive is no longer a priority. Yes, Microsoft will help you move to the new framework, but you’ll need to do a fair bit of heavy lifting to get your code in shape for the transition. Unless you plan to stay on the .NET Framework forever, you have a year or so to use .NET Core 3.0 as a proving ground for a new, cross-platform .NET future.

Microsoft previews Visual Studio Online   


Microsoft is offering a public preview of Visual Studio Online, which provides online development environments in the company’s Azure cloud. The managed, on-demand environments can be used for long-term projects, for prototyping new features, or for ad hoc tasks like reviewing pull requests.

Developers can access Visual Studio Online via a web browser, via Visual Studio Code, or via Visual Studio 2019, which is now available in a private, preview mode for use with Visual Studio Online. Access from Visual Studio Code requires an extension.

10 picky reasons to choose a cloud   


The cloud began as a commodity business. Oh sure, there were small differences like the size of the RAM or the way the virtual CPUs were measured but the cloud offered a seemingly endless supply of seemingly identical machines. They ran the same distros and responded the same way on the command line. And if you snapped your fingers, the cloud service providers would give you root on another.

Keeping everything the same was the easiest way to lure the developers from the safety of their air-conditioned racks in the same building. Commodity machines mean there are no surprises or glitches. All of the clouds offered the most popular operating systems where all of the bits were arranged exactly the same.

Why the Rust language is on the rise   


You’ve probably never written anything in Rust, the open source, systems-level programming language created by Mozilla, but you likely will at some point. Developers crowned Rust their “most loved” language in Stack Overflow’s 2019 developer survey, while Redmonk’s semi-annual language rankings saw Rust get within spitting distance of the top 20 (ranking #21).

This, despite Rust users “find[ing] difficulty and frustration with the language’s highly touted features for memory safety and correctness.”

What is SQL? The first language of data analysis   


Today, Structured Query Language is the standard means of manipulating and querying data in relational databases, though with proprietary extensions among the products. The ease and ubiquity of SQL have even led the creators of many “NoSQL” or non-relational data stores, such as Hadoop, to adopt subsets of SQL or come up with their own SQL-like query languages.

But SQL wasn’t always the “universal” language for relational databases. From the beginning (circa 1980), SQL had certain strikes against it. Many researchers and developers at the time, including me, thought that the overhead of SQL would keep it from ever being practical in a production database.

Register New Device For Beta - Apple   


I thought that registering a new device to use in internal betas would be breeze in 2019. It still isn’t.

Easy Mode

First there is the easy way where Xcode will do everything automatically. Unfortunately this method is only available if all of the following points are satisfied:

  • You are an admin of the account you’re trying to add the device to
  • You have the device with you
  • You have Xcode installed with code signing set up

In this case is simply necessary to build and run the application and Xcode will automatically ask you if you want to add the device to the test devices if it is not already registered.

Unfortunately when working on a client’s project this is never the case. You would like to add the client’s device so you can send betas without waiting for Beta App Review.

Manual Mode

Preparations For An Existing Account

You might find yourself in front of the “reset your device list before adding any new devices” screen.

Click reset, this will not delete any of your existing devices. In the next screen you will be able to select which one of your old devices you want to keep and which ones you want to delete.

Registering a new device

Unfortunately iTunes is needed for this procedure.

  • Connect the phone you want to add and open iTunes.
  • Click on the device ID to show the UDID, right click to copy.
  • Open the developer portal
  • Go to Certificates, Identifiers&Profiles > Devices
  • Click on the + button. If it said that you need to reset the current list of devices press yes, this will NOT actually reset the list of devices, but will allow you to add new ones.
  • Select the devices from the previous list that you want to keep (usually all of them)
  • Add the new device by providing a name and the UDID

Remember that after registering a device you will need to regenerate the provisioning profile to be able to build and run to that device.

Beta App Review

If you just want to release a beta through Testflight you don’t necessarily need to register a device. You can submit your app for beta app review and in that case, after approval, you will be able to add external accounts via email or even share a link to add testers without the need of adding devices through the portal at all. This requires a few more days waiting for App Review for the initial build, but on subsequent builds for the same release you do not need to go through beta app review again so it might be worth the few days wait in some cases.


It is usually best to just not add the device and wait for App Review if you’re not so pressed for time.

You could even upload a build some time before. That way it will be ready to go whenever you want to release the beta. You can only do that though if you know the timetable beforehand. Be aware that if you release any kind of version (even .1) update you will need to go through Beta App Review again. If the update is only minor (only the build number changes) you will be able to release for both internal and external testers as soon as the processing phase finishes.

Sierra Club helping to Kohler Andrae State Park unspoiled   


I'm a bit remiss in noticing, but the Sierra Club newsletter which just arrived brings welcome news:
"The Sierra Club's John Muir forming a coalition with Friends of the Black River Forest to oppose the Kohler Company's proposed golf course development north of Kohler Andrae State Park."
Readers of this blog may know that I have been writing about this issue since 2014 - - which is also the year the Sierra Club began stepping up
The Kohler company has proposed constructing a 247 acre golf course in the Black River Forest north of Kohler Andrae State Park.  Although the bulk of the development would be on private land, the company also seeks an easement for a maintenance shed and road that would impact 12 acres of state park land.  
If constructed, this would be Kohler's 5th luxury golf course in the area.  A local citizens group, Friends of the Black River Forest, has formed to voice concerns about the potential for this development to destroy native forest, sand dunes, and Indian mounds.  They are also concerned about increased runoff from fertilizer and pesticides impacting water quality of the Black River (already impaired due to excess phosphorus) and Lake Michigan.  
More recently, a state judge blocked what he said was the DNR's improper issuance of a permit which could spur the contamination of groundwater, loss of rare wetlands and an outrageous transfer of public acreage within this popular lakefront park for private uses, road-building and equipment storage.

Park advocates have been battling special interest influence in the matter for years, and need all the help they muster. You can pitch at Friends of the Black River Forest, below, or at the website seen on this hard-to-miss and available yard sign.
The grassroots organization Friends of the Black River Forest is out with a new yard sign urging protection of Kohler Andrae State Park from transferring land to a private developer for the construction of a privately-owned, high-end golf course complex.
For a $15 contribution, you can get this sign - - 
- - that will help keep a signature state park intact.


GitHub Mistakes That New Devs Make   


In recent weeks, several developers looking for their first dev job have asked me to review their resumes and/or portfolios, and give them tips on how to improve their profiles. Many of the issues I flagged appeared in most of the profiles I reviewed, so I decided to write this piece with some (unsolicited 😊) advice on how to avoid a flat, one-dimensional GitHub profile as a new software developer. The reality is that the market for new devs is becoming increasingly competitive, on account of more and more coding bootcamps churning out entry-level developers by the month. I think that the time spent crafting a unique, informative job-seeking profile is time well spent. So, onto the mistakes!

Mistake #1 - Stuffing every single app you’ve built into your GitHub
I think this behavior comes from the belief that: the more apps we have built, the more competent and versatile we appear. However, including every app you have built in your GitHub can have the opposite effect, and cause you to appear unfocused and insecure. Instead, choose only those apps that:

• Showcase your growth as a developer: To do this, you could include two iterations of one app in your portfolio: the first iteration would contain the rudimentary code you wrote at the start of your learning, and the second would have all the improvements and refactoring you’ve done since you first built the app. In the README of the improved version, explain the changes you made and why.
• Represent the fruit of certain struggles you faced while learning: Include apps that you struggled to build, and document these struggles and how you overcame them in the README. These apps give you ample subject matter to discuss during your interviews.
• Represent your ability to combine several functionalities and cause them to work together: Something I see over and over in new dev portfolios are apps that boast only one main functionality. For example, one app incorporates authentication; another app consumes an API; still another app implements chat between users. I suggest including apps that implement several functionalities that work seamlessly together, as this is more representative of the apps you will work with on the job.
• Showcase your passion (or was major fun to build): This point is more about being able to exude confidence and authentic emotion while speaking about your apps in interviews. No matter how technically impressive, if an app does not make you want to talk about it and field questions about it, do not include it.

Mistake #2 - Empty, Default or Scanty READMEs
When someone navigates to your GitHub repo, they see a title and a column of folders. Most will scroll down the page to the README section; only to be disappointed by the default GitHub README text or nothing at all. They may never get a sense of the awesome code living within the repo, because your undeveloped README gave a poor first impression. As a job-hunter, you want to make the process of getting to know you as simple and straight-forward as possible. Your README is your opportunity to do just that: to tell a story that will draw the hiring manager in, and make them desire to learn more about you. I think the README for every coding project included in your GitHub should include the following:

• Rationale for building the app: Nothing ground-breaking or save-the-world-ish is necessary. Just a short explanation for why you chose to spend precious time on this particular app. Maybe it was to teach yourself a certain library. Or create a solution for elderly dog-walkers.
• List of App’s Functionality: a bullet list of what your app does.
• Problems Encountered & Solutions Implemented: this goes back to the point above about the quality of apps you include in your profile. In my opinion, if building an app was easy, breezy, follow-the-tutorial-prompts, you should exclude it. It is those apps that took a fair amount of effort that showcase your tenacity as a developer, and the README should detail those struggles - just not in whole paragraphs though!
• Instructions for Deploying the App Locally: This isn’t true of most hiring managers, but there are some who like to deploy the apps of candidates locally, try to break it, then come up with questions to ask the candidate. So I recommend having simple steps to reproduce your app in a local environment. Be sure to state any prerequisite operating systems (like MacOS only) or software.

Mistake #3 - Including Apps that aren’t Deployed Online
Like I said above, few hiring managers will attempt to deploy your app locally. But most would like to interact with your app and test its functionality. Undeployed apps are cousins to Undeveloped READMEs; by not deploying your app, you again miss that crucial opportunity to draw the interest of hiring managers, and showcase your skills in a dynamic way. So please, deploy every app you include in your GitHub.
- - What if my app is mostly back-end? No problem! Implement a very rudimentary frontend, deploy the app, then explain in the README that you focused solely on backend for the app in question, so the frontend is not intended to represent your skills, but merely to grant access to the backend functionality.

What About Unfinished or Abandoned Apps?
Several devs whose profiles I’ve reviewed have objected to my advice on including only high-quality apps in their GitHub. “But I’m currently working on several unfinished apps - where do I put them?” Well, there are several ways to distinguish your finished apps which are ready for exhibit, from those still under construction.

• Pin your apps for exhibit to your GitHub profile: under “Popular Repositories” on your GitHub profile, click on the “Customize Your Pins” link to the right, then select up to six apps to be displayed. Anyone landing on your GitHub profile will see these apps upfront.
• Prefix unfinished apps: add an “In Progress” prefix or flag to your unfinished apps. This approach indicates which apps are still being built (and hence, should be ignored or taken with a grain of salt).

NOTE: I initially included the tip “Have 2 GitHub accounts; use one for the apps (finished or unfinished) that you wish to showcase” but upon reflecting on the potential downsides of that arrangement, I’ve decided to pull that tip out of the story.

Your choice of portfolio apps should reflect the story you wish to tell and the competence you wish to reflect as a developer, not just that you have this Swiss-army knife of skills. The goal is to convince hiring managers that you are an asset to any dev team; choose those apps that demonstrate your ability to wireframe tech-based solutions at a high-level, locate and incorporate tech solutions efficiently, and work in a self-directed, self-motivated manner.

Thanks for reading! 🤗


Marlin "bureaucracy" (no replies)   


So instead of providing one off patches here I decided it was time to actually update marlin on github..

What a nightmare!

Firstly although I can code, and use git, I am not a professional programmer, I don't do this stuff daily.

My first attempt I just created an "issue" with a solution. It was only a three line change.
So after writing a book about it... The bug report was created,
The immediate response was "submit a PR" (PR being pull request)

For a 3 line change, that is expecting a bit much for someone that doesn't do this daily. But eventually someone else did do this.

My second attempt. I created a PR.
The immediate response was "submit a issue"

Can you see the circular logic going on here?

I checked to documentation [] its clearly says "If you have an open issue associated with your Pull Request" not that you require a issue

Apparently what they really want is an Issue and a PR each referencing the other... despite what the the documentation may say.

And one last insult, I wanted to also update 1.1.x and generated the PR, only to be told that I must use bugfix-1.1.x and was pointed back to the above manual

The manual does not mention 1.1.x or bugfix-1.1.x, it only mentions bugfix-2.0

So 3rd attempt is currently underway with a 3rd PR request, this time to bugfix-1.1.x

I can see why Marlin development is so slow, no one in their right mind would tolerate this bureaucracy! So they wont be attracting many new developers.


ENDSTOP_INTERRUPTS feature error (8 replies)   


Hi guys, I hope someone can help me.
My knowledge with coding is novice level, but I have a fair understanding of how the structure works.

I want to install Marlin (Anet A8 version) on my MKS Gen 1.4 with TMC2208 drivers, I got everything working as it should, BUT when compiling I run into this error:

    #if digitalPinToInterrupt(Y_MIN_PIN) != NOT_AN_INTERRUPT
      attachInterrupt(digitalPinToInterrupt(Y_MIN_PIN), endstop_ISR, CHANGE);
      // Not all used endstop/probe -pins can raise interrupts. Please deactivate ENDSTOP_INTERRUPTS or change the pin configuration!
      static_assert(digitalPinToPCICR(Y_MIN_PIN) != NULL, "Y_MIN_PIN is not interrupt-capable");

if I comment out
// Enable this feature if all enabled endstop pins are interrupt-capable.
// This will remove the need to poll the interrupt pins, saving many CPU cycles.

then the sketch compiles without any errors and I can upload it to the board., but as soon as I un-comment it, this error comes up.

I then went and started at the beginning, using the Example sketch for the A8 that comes with Marlin, I get the same error.

I have the TMC2208Stepper 0.25 installed in my library.

It was suggested to me by Marlin on Twitter to:

Comment out the sanity check. Some platforms incorrectly implemented our check for interrupt-capable pins as a runtime function instead of making it work in the preprocessor. The developers have been reprimanded.

but I have NO idea where to find this specific sanity check

I would be so great-full for assistance please!!

Thank you guys!


Historic preservation in DC prioritizes loud neighbors, not fine buildings   


DC has many more historically protected buildings than cities several times our size. This surfeit of historic structures results from several factors, notably the broad application of rather vague criteria for designation. As Roger Lewis has written, “the HPRB decision is inevitably a judgment call because much of the evidence for historic designation is inherently subjective.”

Once acquired, historic designation requires even simple renovation plans to clear numerous additional hurdles, incurring additional reviews, hearings, and redesigns that can cost many thousands of dollars, and possibly resulting in outright denial. The delays, uncertainty, and subjective judgments intrinsic to this process makes it the perfect legal cover for busybodies attempting to keep the status quo permanently so.

The biggest weapon in the arsenal

These squeaky wheels turn to historic preservation because it’s the most powerful regulatory tool in a municipality's land-use arsenal. Zoning is strictly limited to regulating broad aspects of a building like its size, shape, and use. As the Supreme Court described in Nectow vs. Cambridge, “zoning… cannot be imposed if it does not bear a substantial relation to the public health, safety, morals, or general welfare.” No one can reasonably say that public morals are jeopardized when the neighbors paint their window shutters hot pink.

That often leaves preservation laws as the only legal remedy a city has to shape a building's appearance. Preservation is only meant to apply in limited circumstances, to buildings of “a special character or special historical or aesthetic interest or value” (as the Penn Central case, which established the constitutional validity of local preservation designations, says). Once it’s in force, preservation concerns get the final say over just about everything else that might be on a community’s wish list, whether it’s sustainability, affordability, or occupant comfort.

A rush to judgment

Since every resident “squeaky wheel” is invited to request historic designation for just about any site in the District, many do — and overwhelmingly, they succeed. A map of DC's historic designations (many of which are historic districts) shows how they're concentrated in DC's most economically privileged areas. While few buildings in Wards 3, 4, 5, 7, and 8 predate the 20th century, Ward 3 has considerably more historically designated structures than its counterparts.

Historic designation applications closely follow development pressures, as Joe Cortright points out: “if other neighborhoods in the city are designated as ‘historic’ and yours isn’t, then you’re more likely to bear the brunt of development pressures. What makes sense from the standpoint of an individual neighborhood quickly leads to a situation that’s bad for a city.”

This rush by loud neighbors to stave off development through historic protections have resulted in numerous unremarkable buildings finding their way onto DC’s historic inventory. One infamous case involves a strip mall parking lot in Spring Valley — not the only local historic strip-mall parking lot, even though that very idea is considered laughable elsewhere. Its structures were deemed worthy of preservation because, as the nomination form points out, they “are unique in the District of Columbia. Developed by one firm and designed or inspired by one architectural vision, the buildings comprise a cluster that reflects national trends in architecture, merchandising, planning, and retail expansion.” In short, it deserves preservation because it's a strip mall, and strip malls are rare within the boundaries of DC — never mind that they're hardly endangered in Maryland, just three blocks away.

Buildings with blue backgrounds have been designated as historic. Buildings in red were designed by I.M. Pei's firm. The one circled in yellow is a condominium. Base map generated from AtlasPlus. Image by the author.

Across town, I.M. Pei's architecture firm designed seven Brutalist high-rises for developer William Zeckendorf in Southwest Washington: three at L'Enfant Plaza and four at Waterside Mall. Two of them are on the National Register — not the best, not the largest, not the least-altered, not the one Pei most directly shaped, not the one most indicative of his style. Instead, the “historic” ones include one building that happened to be gut-rehabbed and converted to condos, and its condo board was upset by a proposal to build on an adjacent parking lot.

Still not special enough? A district often has lower standards

The arbitrary nature of historic designations was made abundantly clear by DC’s historic preservation staff in a rare 2015 recommendation to deny a historic landmark application for a house in Petworth. In it, they said that the house itself wasn’t that special. Yet, if pulled together with its equally unremarkable neighbors, they cumulatively would clear the bar for architectural significance: “[T]he Board has denied applications to designate [eight addresses] on the grounds that, as architecture, they were not important enough examples or of special distinction in their neighborhoods. An architectural landmark must be a particularly noteworthy example and must be significant to the District of Columbia… The house at 16 Grant Circle does not alone stand out in this way… while not eligible for listing as an Historic Landmark, the house at 16 Grant Circle would undeniably contribute to a Grant Circle Historic District.” Sure enough, just months later the HPRB created the Grant Circle Historic District, evidently at the behest of some residents who wanted to stop construction of legal pop-ups.

Anywhere a penny-pinching developer stamps out identikit designs, the resulting buildings will all look unremarkable, all together — but as long as that togetherness was a while ago, it's apparently sufficient to warrant historic protection. Never mind that the individual buildings might be middling, that their architectural unity is compromised by “non-contributing” buildings in the middle, or that there might be better examples somewhere else.

Other cities take a proactive approach to preservation planning

Many other places, including Arlington, Chicago, and Los Angeles, have proactively done comprehensive “historic resources surveys,” a process that a National Park Service handbook calls the “basis for preservation planning.” The National Historic Preservation Act even lists the first responsibility of a State Historic Preservation Officer, a role that the Office of Planning plays in DC, as “direct and conduct a comprehensive statewide survey of historic property and maintain inventories of the property.”

In these surveys, planners go out into the field to visit and inventory every single building, and evaluate whether it could potentially meet the predetermined criteria for historic designation because of its age, architectural merit, or context. A comprehensive survey is the first step in a proactive approach to preservation that identifies and saves those buildings of greatest historic value — whether the oldest structures, the most noteworthy and influential designs, the best-kept examples of various types and styles, or places that shaped important individuals, events, or movements.

A survey could identify the best examples of particular building types, like those from a certain era, style, architect, or use, and make preservation of the most notable structures a high priority. By doing so, it would guarantee that the stories that those types tell are being preserved, rather than rescuing everything for all time.

The Jost-Kuhn House on Madison St. NW was built as a farmstead before the Civil War, and is decades older than many houses now being considered for historic designation. It did not become a landmark until after an OP survey of farmhouses. Image by Google Street View.

However, OP doesn't seem very interested in a comprehensive survey. It has completed many smaller surveys covering neighborhoods and themes, but even its current preservation plan still sees completing a comprehensive citywide survey as a distant goal for some far-off future year. Instead, it advances still more smaller thematic surveys, e.g., of Georgetown alleys, downtown Modernism, and old farmhouses. The most recent attempt at a District-wide inventory was done by the Joint Committee on Landmarks in the 1960s.

Relying instead on a reactive approach to preservation does an injustice to legitimately interesting buildings whose histories have yet to be uncovered, while also bloating the historic inventory with many other buildings of middling merit. A survey-based approach could not only save more hidden treasures — it probably would have resulted in fewer but higher-quality designations. Chicago's historic resources survey found only 17,371 properties citywide that were even potentially eligible for designation as historic, or just two percent of its structures.

Are we collecting, or hoarding?

Randy Frost, a psychologist who studies hoarding, makes this distinction: “When a collector expands acquisitions beyond well-defined collections… it becomes a hoarding problem.”

Institutions that take their collections seriously have well-defined rules for what enters their collections, because of what philosopher G. K. Chesterton called “the eternal revolution”: “If you leave a white post alone it will soon be a black post. If you particularly want it to be white you must be always painting it again; that is, you must be always having a revolution.”

The Corcoran had a magnificent collection of art, but not all of it was deemed appropriate for the NGA's collection. Image licensed under Creative Commons.

The National Gallery of Art was recently offered the contents of the Corcoran museum, but only took half the pieces. As Peggy Loar, the Corcoran's interim president, told the Post: “If they [NGA] take it in, they have it forever — so they have a big fiduciary responsibility to the United States taxpayer.”

Historic building designation also creates a big fiduciary responsibility: it burdens all future generations of residents with the job of maintaining a building forever, even after its original use and structure have become obsolete.

Preservation costs nothing today, but a lot tomorrow

Maintaining past generations' memories also carries another price: by making urban land more scarce and more expensive, it can hurt future generations' ability to build their own places and create their own memories.

The Obama White House's “Housing Development Toolkit” specifically called out “arbitrary or antiquated preservation regulations” among local policies that discourage new housing development — an “accumulation of even well-intentioned land-use policies [that] can restrict housing availability; create uncertainty for developers and limit private investment; exacerbate the imbalance between jobs and housing; and induce urban sprawl.” (At the time, DC’s planning director dismissed the report, saying they’ve implemented most of its suggestions.)

In New York, preservation and development groups recently issued conflicting reports about whether historic preservation stifles economic growth and housing affordability. The debate has led to some changes in how long landmark designation can take.

If DC wants historic preservation to remain a useful tool for broader planning, rather than one that takes over the entire planning system, it should become more discerning about what it adds to its collection of historic buildings.
