Evanescence’s Amy Lee – Supreme Rock Goddesses

Evanescence‘s Amy Lee has become an idol for countless hopeful female singers, songwriters and pianists worldwide.The American songstress became rock’s most influential female with the release of the Evanescence breakthrough album ‘Fallen’ in 2003. Her performances on ‘Bring Me to Life,’ ‘My Immortal,’ ‘Call Me When You’re Sober’ and more hits have kept her in the limelight for a decade, with her gothic beauty and unmistakable talent rallying up a cult fan base rivaling almost any active musician today. After completing a heavy 2012 tour schedule, Lee is currently taking a bit of a break to “figure things out.”

Illinois bad credit costing taxpayers millions | News-Gazette.com

Illinois is paying the price — in both cash and reputation — for years of ignored warnings about its pension crisis, the worst in the nation.Largely because of its unfunded retirement plans, Illinois has replaced longtime bottom-dweller California as having the lowest credit rating of any state. So when Illinois tries to borrow money, it faces the same problem as the spendthrift cousin: far higher interest rates.The states financial failings are so well-known, they have inspired a name on Wall Street — the "Illinois effect," a reference to the fact that cities, universities and other bond-issuing entities here must pay more in interest, even if they are responsible spenders.

New York Times: The Dutch Prize Their Pedal Power, but a Sea of Bikes Swamps Their Capital.
Bicycles, the preferred means of travel, are clogging streets and overwhelming parking spaces in Amsterdam, causing some to say the unthinkable: There are too many bikes.

Bernanke stop inflation. 0% for veterans and elderly.

Yes, trickle down is working a little bit for the poor 99%, finally. The fed and bailouts have been inflating the rich 1% for some years now leading to overpriced $43,000,000 apartments in New York City. Bernanke is threatening to shut down the spigot just inflation is starting to benefit the poor. Obama is threatening to fire Bernanke for refusal to help the poor. The problem is that if he replaces Bernanke with Yellin, Summers, or Geithner it will not help much as they are pawns of the rich 1%. The fed should buy all mortgages of veterans and the elderly and replace those with 0% non-usury loans which is the interest rate paid on federal funds that banks borrow at. In this time of war USA should not forget the veterans that make the USA possible and the elderly who built the USA. The fed and government should put veterans and the elderly ahead of bankers. Interest rates are very different in the current recession malaise recovery than during the 1980 recession.

http://lewrockwell.com/faber/faber161.html *Marc Faber: People With Assets Are All Doomed* *by Jason Farrell* */Daily Reckoning /* When the always cheerful Dr. Marc Faber gave his midyear forecast to Barron’s, it was, as you might expect, predictably sunny. ‘People with assets are all doomed,’ he began, ‘because prices are grossly inflated globally for stocks, bonds and collectibles.’ Faber warns the Federal Reserves low interest rates could lead to a global crash. Faber acknowledged the Fed’s role in rising equity prices this year. And suggested the party wouldn’t last, due to the uneven flow of money through the economy. ‘I own equities, and I should thank Mr. Bernanke. The Fed has been flooding the system with money. The problem is the money doesn’t flow into the system evenly. It doesn’t increase economic activity and asset prices in concert. Instead, it creates dangerous excesses in countries and asset classes… ‘Now money is flowing into the high-end asset market – things like stocks, bonds, art, wine, jewelry and luxury real estate. The art auction houses are seeing record sales. Property prices in the Hamptons rose 35% last year. Sandy Weill [the former head of Citigroup] bought a Manhattan condominium in 2007 for $43.7 million. He sold it last year for $88 million.’ Faber amended his prediction last year that there would be a 20% correction last fall:‘We might be in the final acceleration phase now. The Standard & Poor’s 500 could rally to 1,750 or even 2,000 in the next month or two before collapsing.’ Faber gave readers some insight into his own portfolio: no US stocks, 25% gold, 25% non-US equities, including some Asian real estate. He noted he was ‘tempted to short the S&P or the Russell 2000.’He also owns several Japanese stocks, noting that ‘Japanese stocks made a generational low in 2012 and won’t go below that.’ To read Marc Faber is to be grimly aware of all the uncertainty in the world that could erupt at any time. Collapsing bond markets. Accelerating inflation. A Chinese economic implosion. Civil unrest. Even a pandemic, Faber suggested, could end this year’s equities rally. ‘I don’t know how the world will look in five years,’ Faber lamented ‘so I have heeded Ray Dalio’s advice to diversify.’ Peace,

"They who can give up essential liberty to obtain a little temporary safety, deserve neither liberty nor safety." (1775) Benjamin Franklin

Big data, science jobs, privacy dangers, business opportunities

Beach is gorgeous. Hard to come in and do work. But sunshine and exercise is healthy.

There is plenty of fish in the sea but that does not mean it is easy to catch, clean, and cook even one fish.

Just because the government collects data does not mean they are smart enough to do anything with it. There are many spectacular intelligence failures. Few if any successes. But there will be a lot of spending and waste. This will divert money away from science, much of which is very interesting and useful.

I have always been fascinated by difficult computational problems and intend to do a lot more on it. I am looking for the hardest problem that I think I can solve. Probably in the area of DNA genetics + foods and other products purchased + features of the environment + lifestyle => Obamacare health care spending. How to reprogram society for health and survival. The hardest problem is getting the data. I think I can do the math and computer architecture. My popular book will list some practical common sense suggestions that are more important but probably too controversial. People are irrational so they prefer to spend pounds on cures instead of an ounce of prevention.

I was walking with an IBM mainframe COBOL programmer from Kansas City. I hear that American Airlines and others have a huge facility in Kansas City. Every pilot, seat, plane, staff, customer, bill, travel agent, web sites, must somehow be planned carefully respecting the weather and other problems. Lots of detail code in Assembler. Has worked good for decades so they cannot change that code to modern computing systems. Scheduling requires difficult linear programming probably written in Fortran. Already been done so I will not be interested in it.

Very interesting article:

Tasty Colorful Tturmeric fights many diseases

I agree. Many studies showing many benefits from turmeric (and other spices and golden yellow foods such as squash, yams,...). Most people get some Turmeric in French's mustard but probably not enough. I like the taste and the bright yellow color. I use it a lot. I would like to grow my own but now I get it from Amazon.com, prefer an Iowa USA brand (may be less polluted than third world countries)
http://www.amazon.com/Frontier-Ground-Turmeric-minimum-Curcumin/dp/B001VNGK6I/ref=pd_sbs_hpc_3

I also get curry powder from ethnic supermarket that also includes pepper and other spices that may be beneficial. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Curry_powder

red meat iron insulin resistance diabetes

I have been reading a lot similar to the below on dangers of red meat, especially processed red meatsuch as bologna(very bad). Much of this writing seems confused and not the best science but some truth there. My tendency is to be vegetarian + cheese + fish. I will probably continue to do so unless I learn archery to procure localorganic deer. Pistol is unfair advantage, rifle is worse. Guns may cause detached retina. I can get away with eating meat because I exercise enough that I need more protein. Exercise also reduces insulin resistance and burns calories. But 6 deer per year is too much. Lobster and trout are better because they are higher in saturated fat. Carbos and protein are the problems and are metabolized similarly. Fat is good. Vegetables are better. Moderate whole fruits are ok too (watch out for fructose, no juice). http://cancerisnotadisease.com/processing-meat-requires-a-huge-insulin-response-more-than-eating-half-a-pound-of-sugar/ in my diabetes book “DIABETES NO MORE” about how the human body, while processing meat, will require a huge insulin response which is much, much bigger than in response to eating half a pound of sugar.“If you eat concentrated protein food such as meat or chicken, your body requires much insulin to synthesize proteins from the amino acids derived from these foods. According to research, the stimulation of protein synthesis is a classic action of insulin. Loss of the stimulatory effect of insulin on protein synthesis would reduce growth and result in weight loss, which are hallmarks of diabetes. To make certain that the amino acids derived from the protein meal are synthesized into proteins, the pancreas has to secrete insulin. In other words, the more protein you eat, the more insulin your body needs to make, thus increasing the chances of insulin resistance and type 2 diabetes. Accordingly, eating a normal sized steak forces your pancreas to secrete more insulin than it would need to produce in response to eating twelve times the amount of sugar contained in one can of soda. In addition to that if you also eat potatoes, a sweet dessert and drink a soda along with your meal like most Americans do, you can expect to further increase the insulin resistance. Currently diabetes is the fastest growing epidemic in America and it is easy to see why. The effect of insulin on protein metabolism is complex and it involves changes in both the synthesis and degradation of proteins. If protein intake is excessive, insulin secretions increase to help with its degradation. Protein synthesis and the control of carbohydrate and fat metabolism have now been linked in unexpected ways and many of the same signaling systems utilized by insulin to control glucose metabolism for example have been found to be involved in a control of protein synthesis as well. The bottom line is that excessive intake of protein is a direct cause of insulin resistance and may lead to the onset of type 2 diabetes.” http://www.opb.org/artsandlife/article/npr-hot-dogs-bacon-and-red-meat-tied-to-increased-diabetes-risk/ http://www.npr.org/blogs/thesalt/2013/06/18/192810562/hot-dogs-bacon-and-red-meat-tied-to-increased-diabetes-risk among those who started eating more red meat, about 3.5 servings more per week, the risk of developing Type 2 diabetes during four years of follow-up increased by almost 50 percent, which Hu describes as "a really large increase."As with previous studies linking red meat to health concerns, the researchers found that processed red meats such as hot dogs and bacon were more strongly associated with the risk of diabetes. Among those who starting eating less red meat, the risk of developing diabetes dropped by about 14 percent during a 10-year follow-up period.Now, to put this study in context, it's important to point out that the most significant driver of Type 2 diabetes is body weight. People who are overweight and obese are much more likely to develop the condition.Since red meat is typically high in calories and fat, some experts say that it's likely these factors that create the link between heavy red meat consumption and and increased risk of diabetes.But in this study, the link held up even after the researchers controlled for the role of weight gain. And this suggests that there's an independent effect of red meat consumption increasing the risk of diabetes. It's not clear what's happening in the body, but there are a few theories. It's possible that heavy red meat consumption can lead to iron overload, which sets the stage for insulin resistance.It's also possible that compounds called nitrosamines play a role."Our understanding is that, especially in processed meats, these nitrosamines can cause inflammation," explains Dr. David Nathan, who directs the diabetes center at Massachusetts General Hospital.And there's also some evidence that nitrosamines can damage the cells in the pancreas that make insulin. But experts say more research is needed to understand these connections. http://harvardmagazine.com/2012/01/a-diabetes-link-to-meat RED-MEAT consumption is already linked to higher levels of colorectal cancer and cardiovascular disease (atherosclerosis, heart disease, and stroke). Now researchers from Harvard School of Public Health (HSPH) have added an increased risk of type 2 (adult onset) diabetes to that list. The incurable illness occurs when the body’s ability to control blood glucose levels by means of insulin secretion becomes impaired, either because of “insulin resistance” (when insulin fails to trigger effective glucose uptake by muscle or other tissues), or because production of insulin by beta cells in the pancreas declines. The HSPH investigators, led by professor of epidemiology Frank Hu and research fellow An Pan, analyzed data from three longitudinal studies of male and female healthcare professionals who were followed for 14 to 28 years. After adjusting for other risk factors, the researchers found that a daily serving of red meat no larger than a deck of cards increased the risk of adult-onset diabetes by 19 percent. Processed red meat proved much worse: a daily serving half that size—one hot dog, or two slices of bacon, for example—was associated with a 51 percent increase in risk. (The average 10-year risk of getting diabetes for U.S. adults is around 10 percent.) Why is red meat harmful? “Saturated fat, which can lead to cardiovascular disease, is really just the beginning of the story,” explains Hu. Even though it is “difficult to pinpoint one compound or ingredient” as mechanistically linked to diabetes risk, three components of red meat—sodium, nitrites, and iron—are probably involved. Sodium is well known to increase blood pressure, but it also causes insulin resistance; nitrites and nitrates have also been shown to increase insulin resistance and to impair the function of the pancreatic beta cells. Iron, although an essential mineral, can cause beta-cell damage in individuals with hereditary hemochromatosis (a disorder in which the gastrointestinal tract absorbs too much iron), and heme iron—the readily absorbable type found in meat—at high levels can lead to oxidative stress (and cell damage) and systemic, chronic inflammation in some people. The study found that substituting other foods—such as whole grains, nuts, low-fat dairy, fish, and poultry (listed in order of effectiveness)—for meat substantially lowered diabetes risk. (Beans were not part of the study because consumption levels are so low, but Hu says that the benefits would likely be similar to consumption of other plant-based foods.) The findings of the group, which included Stare professor of nutrition Walter Willett and Brigham professor of women’s health JoAnn Manson, agree with the advice presented in a “Healthy Eating Plate” (HSPH’s answer to the U.S. government’s MyPlate dietary guidance), on which meat and dairy products are not even represented visually. The Healthy Eating Plate emphasizes vegetables, fruits, whole grains, and healthy proteins such as those listed in Hu’s study; recommends avoiding processed meats entirely; and shows a glass of water, rather than a glass of milk, beside the plate. “We don’t need to remove red meat from the diet entirely,” says Hu. “Americans just need to move meat from the center of the plate to the side of the plate.”

Lights out: House plan would protect nation's electricity from solar flare, nuclear bomb

Republicans are right. This is the kind of national defense that USA needs a lot more of. But it does not go far enough. Also we need a revitalized horse industry, bicycles, cows, candles, etc. Animal power and human power can work fine if the electrical grid is destroyed. They worked fine before the electrical grid was built. Tractors won't work if their computers are fried. Water won't pump without electricity. Food will rot without refrigerators. Millions of people will die from lack of water and food. Government should prepare for disasters better.

Missouri Lobster: Large Crayfish in Table Rock Lake

Saw some traps hanging from a boat dock today. Lakes here are filled with fish. Lots of organic natural edibles. Walnut trees, blackberries, deer, rabbit,.. everywhere. *crayfish densities in some Ozark streams are among the highest in the world,* Long-Pincered Crayfish: large, colorful crayfish is characterized by very long, slender, blue-green pincers that are studded with prominent yellowish knobs. This is the largest crayfish in Missouri. Adult length: 6 inches or more: An inhabitant of medium-sized to large, clear Ozark streams with permanent, strong flow and predominantly silt-free substrates. The favored habitat is moderately deep pools along bluffs where rock slabs and large rubble provide crevices for hiding during the daylight hours. At dusk it emerges to forage over the stream bottom. Distribution in Missouri: The long-pincered crayfish occurs only in the White River basin of southern Missouri and northern Arkansas. Substantial populations of this species also occur in Table Rock Lake. This species is captured for human consumption in Table Rock Lake. Handling big crayfish can be a challenge. If one latches onto your finger, you probably will emit a few words of despair. He cooks the crayfish in a 5- to 6-gallon pot with a basket in it. He fills the pot about half to two-thirds full with water spiced with Cajun seasoning and brings the mixture to a boil. He then dumps in whole crawdads, along with some small red potatoes, small onions and whole mushrooms, and lets everything boil for five to six minutes. He'll then add some ears of corn and let the pot simmer for another five minutes or so. When the vegetables are done, the crawdads should be bright red. “Needless to say it's hard to keep from pigging out when you have all those crawdads. It's an impressive feast.” My method is simpler. I soak the tails and claws in salt water for an hour or so before rinsing them and popping them into a pot of boiling water spiced up with a tablespoon of Old Bay Seasoning for every 2 cups of water. I stir frequently for about 10 minutes until the crawdads or pieces turn a bright red, indicating they are cooked.

Seattle Apartments: Deflation

Needed deflation. Size deflation. Better to have a small apartment where you can walk to workand shopping than sitting down (damaging to health) and commuting long distances (damaging to environment and pocketbook). In 1963 over half of USA workers walked to work. 50 years later very few walk to work. Seattle has coffee shops, restaurants, and all sorts of exciting things do do and good jobs. Size goes down and place improves so people are happier even though price is the same. I have always been attracted to Seattle but have never managed to move there. Now I am using Apple instead of Microsoft Windows. I use a lot of home space now but trying to cut way downthis year. Books, papers, computerseverywhere. http://www.pottsmerc.com/article/20130510/NEWS04/130519879/seattle-looks-to-downsize-living-spaces Since 2006, the city has permitted 48 micro-housing projects. If all are built, they would yield living quarters for about 2,300 people. The micro-apartments range from 150 to 200 square feet for single occupants, with rents running about $500 to $700 a month and often include utilities, furnishings and Internet. Seattle looks to downsize living spaces * By Phuong Le Associated Press * Posted: Friday, 05/10/13 06:57 pm Updated: Friday, 05/10/13 06:58 pm * * * * * * * AP Photo In this photo taken Wednesday, April 24, 2013, a sign points toward a new building holding tiny apartments, in Seattle. Even Kris King wasinitially shocked by the size of the apartment he rented near downtown, roughly the size of large parking spot. Cities such as San Francisco, New York and Boston have been encouraging tiny apartments to cater to young workers, retirees others who prefer city dwelling, singles or students. San Francisco last fall approved construction of apartments as small as 220 square feet, while Boston has approved 300 new units as small as 375 sq. feet. But in Seattle, where city codes have allowed for even smaller micro-apartments and dozens have been built in the last five years, the trend is facing a backlash from some neighbors who are pushing for a building moratorium or for them to be more adequately regulated. * * * * * * * CONTRIBUTE * o Story Ideas o Send Corrections SEATTLE — Developers in Seattle have been leading the U.S. in building hundreds of tiny apartments — some about the size of a generous parking spot — to cater to solo young workers, retirees who prefer city living, students and others looking to downsize. Now, some residents are complaining that micro-apartments crowd too many people together, aren’t compatible with some neighborhoods, don’t encourage people to put down roots, and circumvent a design review process meant to get public input. They’re pushing for a building moratorium and more regulation of such projects. “They’re maxing out what they can do under the land use code,” said Patrick Tompkins, who lives in the Capitol Hill neighborhood where some projects have replaced single-family homes, sometimes without much warning. The city code allowing such tiny units has been around for at least three decades, but micro-apartments have taken off in the last three years, said Bryan Stevens with Seattle’s planning department. “It’s really coincided with the recession. Apparently there’s pent-up demand,” he said.

Government spying, abuse, $waste. Armenian Hal Varian? neocons, neoclassicals

Raining a lot today and mild like the whole year so far. I got wet, sudden storm. I could not travel this week because I need to renew my license plates and some banking and other errands. I am sore from weight lifting at Anytime Fitness. I have improved my shape since last November but I sleep more and feel sore a lot more. Tea, whey and Vitamin C reduces soreness. What do you think about Government snooping? Is Obama compiling enemies lists and targeting conservatives (IRS)? Terrorists can easily evade most of what they are doing. Terrorists can easily encrypt messages, hide messages, or use communication methods that the government is not even tracking. They are doing nothing to stop lone wolf terrorists or the small team that shut down Boston. Problem is that honest USA citizens have to report info to the IRS and other agencies while foreign agents and enemies do not have to file and would file erroneously if they do file. Government snooping will interfere with law abiding citizens more than terrorists and other criminals. Spy programs cost lots of money. Looks like a complete waste, or worse, does more harm than good. I predict that more bureaucrats will be caught than terrorists. They will be sexually harassing each other, stealing money, ID theft, and dealing drugs at taxpayer expense. Can't even separate them by sex tp prevent abuse because then the gays and lesbians will harass each other. That large quantity of information will be hard to search and find anything useful about terrorists. They may not even catch conservatives because they are so incompetent. Their web site has a photo of a woman on page 1 indicating affirmative action http://www.nsa.gov/ It looks like an affirmative action program and general promotion of the liberal agenda of the eastern liberal establishment that is setting up more outposts in Mormon Utah. They should just shut down the whole mess -- NSA, CIA, etc. Do you suppose that Hal Varian might be Armenian? The wiki article says nothing on race, religion or ethnicity. Neoclassical is like Neoconservative. They talk about "maximization", "optimization", "rational expectations", "market efficiency", "full information" and such baloney that lulls naive students into thinking that the free market economy is leading us to a social optimum. Instead the whole setup is making the rich richer and the poor poorer. Hal Varian got a job Chief Economist at Google to supplement his Dean job at Berkeley. Payback for decades of disinformation. The math is wrong but accomplishes what it set out to do - justify the system that pads Varian's pocketbook. Neoconservatives are "liberals mugged by reality" -- they adopted the neoclassical market system that works better than central planning, socialism, communism. The free market can help the rich get richer and the poor get poorer just like communism. But does not require revolution ... indeed by controlling the media, banks, government, technology they can get the poor to impoverish and even exterminate themselves. Poor people buy TV, radio, ipods, iphones, xbox games, junk food and other harmful modern devices that will ruin their health and reduce their IQ. China just got in on the act to "modernize" their economy by moving hundreds of millions off the farm into the cities where they will buy Chinese products instead of sending those products to the USA. They are rapidly adopting the USA lifestyle complete with obesity, diabetes, fried brains and gonads, cancer, heart disease, etc. I think they should stay on the farm. I keep thinking about starting a subsistence farm but it is too much of a distraction from my work. Computers, communications, privacy, social networks, etc. very interesting to me for a long time.

Google Expands Its Boundaries, Buying Waze for $1 Billion - NYTimes.com

These Israelis made over a billion dollars in a few years. The monitor the location of millions of cell phones to determine where are the traffic jams, cops, etc. People love to give google their whereabouts and to find out about the whereabouts of others! Worth a billion fiat dollars. Whoever gets the most fiat dollars gets to buy the politicians, the natural resources, ... and run the country and world! Joe Waze, as a crowd sourced location platform, would give Google an additional, very mobile-based angle on this concept, letting users not just share places visited on the web, but actual places visited physically.

http://bits.blogs.nytimes.com/2013/06/11/google-expands-its-boundaries-buying-waze-for-1-billion/ http://techcrunch.com/2013/06/11/its-official-google-buys-waze-giving-a-social-data-boost-to-its-location-and-mapping-business/ After months of speculation, the fate ofWaze , the social-mapping-location-data startup, is finally decided: Google isbuying the company , giving the search giant a social boost to its already-strong mapping and mobile businesses. Speculation has had the sale at $1 billion to $1.3 billion, and so far there is no price on the deal, but a source tells TechCrunch that it was done for $1.1 billion. *Update*: Waze has alsopublished a blog post on the acquisition. In it, CEO Noam Bardin writes that CEO Larry Page, Google GEO VP Brian McClendon and the Google Maps teams “We are excited about the prospect of working with the Google Maps team to enhance our search capabilities and to join them in their ongoing efforts to build the best map of the world.” He also notes that “nothing practical will change,” with the company, now pushing 50 million users, “will maintain our community, brand, service and organization.” He also raises the subject of why Waze decided to sell. Bardin says that it was motivated by the fact that an IPO appeared the route that would take the company more into being focused on returns and less on growing as a product for users. “Choosing the path of an IPO often shifts attention to bankers, lawyers and the happiness of Wall Street, and we decided we’d rather spend our time with you, the Waze community.” Of course, the burden of getting a return on the investment now become’s Google’s, but as you can see below there are a number of reasons why it would buy Waze, anyway.

Missouri College Opulence by Government Finance

Ron, Too many college students are into partying instead of studying. The consequence of easy college loans and financing by the federal government. Spoiled brats since birth with parental neglect and liberal K-12 system. Missouri has many well-to-do families and the more socially oriented have for a long time gone to college at the University of Missouri in Columbia. New York Times raves about how luxurious are the apartments there. Great medical care and hospitals. Mostly white upscale area. Very nice downtown with outdoor restaurants, etc. Reminds me of Frankfurt Germany. Near the Missouri Rhineland Wine district. I prefer Kirksville Harry Truman State University atmosphere. About 2 hours north of Columbia in Agricultural area near Iowa border. Very quiet with empty houses collapsing. But the college is more studious and it also has a medical college in that small town with dental college coming. What few people are there are educated and smart, not so much into partying. More selective college admissions. Very grim atmosphere -- students in library instead of going to lunch. Population moved to the bigger cities over the last 100 years as family farms were converted into massive industrial-scale farming by machines. GMO, crop dusters and other pollution.

Illinois? Blue Brain Supercomputer Simulation $1,000,000,000

I may drive up to University of Illinois Urbana Champaign as early as Sunday to see if I want to move there. Top 5 in Computer Science, Engineering, Accounting, and the largest U Library second only to Harvard. 3 hours from Chicago which has everything else (about the same size as Los Angeles). Surrounded by plants and animals, small towns, safe if SHTF. Great Lakes! Lots of business and intellectual opportunities in computers nowadays. Unfortunately more and more of that work is done in Europe, Israel, China, Japan, etc. USA falling behind. One must go to where the work is being done or you will not be a part of it. Political junkies move to Washington DC. Bankers move to New York City,.... Find out where the best work is being done and move there!

http://www.kurzweilai.net/billion-euro-brain-simulation-and-graphene-projects-win-european-funds Billion-euro brain simulation and graphene projects win European funds

January 24, 2013 Neocortical column studied in Henry Markram’s Blue Brain project (Credit: Ecole Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne) The European Commission has selected the two research proposals it will fund to the tune of half-a-billion euros ($650 million U.S.) each, after a two-year, high-profile contest, /Nature News/ reports . The Human Brain Project, led by neuroscientist Henry Markram at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (EPFL) in Lausanne, plans to simulate the human brain in a supercomputer. (See “Brain in a box ”). The other project, called Graphene, is led by theoretical physicist Jari Kinaret at Chalmers University of Technology in Gothenburg, Sweden. It will develop the potential of graphene — an ultrathin, flexible and conducting form of carbon — along with related materials for applications in computing, batteries and sensors. The projects expect to receive €1 billion ($1.3 billion) over ten years, half to be provided by the European Commission and half by participants. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Blue_Brain_Project The *Blue Brain Project* is an attempt to create a synthetic brain by reverse-engineering the mammalian brain down to the molecular level. The aim of the project, founded in May 2005 by the Brain and Mind Institute of the /École Polytechnique Fédérale de Lausanne / (Switzerland) is to study the brain's architectural and functional principles. The project is headed by the Institute's director, Henry Markram . Using a Blue Gene supercomputer running Michael Hines's NEURON software , the simulation does not consist simply of an artificial neural network , but involves a biologically realistic model of neurons .^[1] ^[2] ^[3] It is hoped that it will eventually shed light on the nature of consciousness .^[3] There are a number of sub-projects, including the Cajal Blue Brain , coordinated by the Supercomputing and Visualization Center of Madrid (CeSViMa), and others run by universities and independent laboratories. Goals[edit ] Neocortical column modelling[edit ] The initial goal of the project, completed in December 2006,^[4] was the simulation of a rat neocortical column , which is considered by some researchers to be the smallest functional unit of the neocortex ^[5] ^[6] (the part of the brain thought to be responsible for higher functions such as conscious thought). Such a column is about 2 mm tall, has a diameter of 0.5 mm and contains about 60,000 neurons in humans; rat neocortical columns are very similar in structure but contain only 10,000 neurons (and 10^8 synapses ). Between 1995 and 2005, Markram mapped the types of neurons and their connections in such a column. Whole brain simulation[edit ] Main article: Whole brain emulation A longer term goal is to build a detailed, functional simulation of the physiological processes in the human brain: "It is not impossible to build a human brain and we can do it in 10 years," Henry Markram, director of the Blue Brain Project said in 2009 at the TED conference in Oxford.^[7] In a BBC World Service interview he said: "If we build it correctly it should speak and have an intelligence and behave very much as a human does."^[7] Cajal Blue Brain used theMagerit supercomputer (CeSViMa ) The Cajal Blue Brain^[14] is coordinated by the Technical University of Madrid and uses the facilities of the Supercomputing and Visualization Center of Madrid and its supercomputer Magerit . The Cajal Institute also participates in this collaboration. The main lines of research currently being pursued at Cajal Blue Brain include neurological experimentation and computer simulations. Nanotechnology, in the form of a newly designed brain microscope, plays an important role in its research plans.^[15] See also[edit ] * Artificial brain * Artificial intelligence * Artificial neural network * CoDi * Cognitive science * Human Brain Project (EU) * List of brain mapping topics and related * Neural network * Neuroinformatics * Project Joshua Blue * Simulation argument * Simulated reality * Social simulation * Whole brain emulation

QE1 QE2 QE3 Temper benefits rich fat cat bankers

Rich fat cat bankers seem much more interested in inflating themselves than inflating their customers. The summary below says the Fed did purchase Mortgage-backed securitiesfrom banks to increase the money in the banks. These assets are probably junk, not worth much, so the banks unloaded them on the Fed. The banks did not loan out much of the money they got from these QE transactions. Instead thebankers paid themselves bonuses and increased their capital holdings as required by Basle III. This has been going on for 5 years. The Fed should have just given that money to the elderly and veteranswho did not cause the crash. Some money might trickle up into the banks and help bankerseventhough thebanks do not deserve that money. But such a policy would be more fair than giving the money to bankers and hoping some of that money might trickle down to elderly, veterans, and others. Inflation should begiven to those who deserve inflation. Money should be given to directly to deserving people. Let the people decide if they want to give that money to the banks. Free to choose what they can do with their money. Let the bankers deflate down to zero. Most bankers are not worth muchmore than zero. Many have negative social value and should be thrown in jail to prevent further schemes and crashes. The attached map shows that the most federal tax per capita paid is Minnesota,Delaware, Connecticut, New Jersey. Joe http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Quantitative_easing#QE1.2C_QE2.2C_and_QE3 The U.S. Federal Reserve held between $700 billion and $800 billion of Treasury notes on its balance sheet before the recession. In late November 2008, the Fed started buying $600 billion in Mortgage-backed securities (MBS). By March 2009, it held $1.75 trillion of bank debt, MBS, and Treasury notes, and reached a peak of $2.1 trillion in June 2010. Further purchases were halted as the economy had started to improve, but resumed in August 2010 when the Fed decided the economy was not growing robustly. After the halt in June holdings started falling naturally as debt matured and were projected to fall to $1.7 trillion by 2012. The Fed's revised goal became to keep holdings at the $2.054 trillion level. To maintain that level, the Fed bought $30 billion in 2–10-year Treasury notes a month In November 2010, the Fed announced a second round of quantitative easing, buying $600 billion of Treasury securities by the end of the second quarter of 2011. The expression "QE2" became a "ubiquitous nickname" in 2010, when used to refer to a second round of quantitative easing by central banks in the United States. Retrospectively, the round of quantitative easing preceding QE2 may be called "QE1". Similarly, "QE3" refers to the third round of quantitative easing following QE2. A third round of quantitative easing, QE3 was announced on 13 September 2012. In an 11-to-1 vote, the Federal Reserve decided to launch a new $40 billion a month, open-ended, bond purchasing program of agency mortgage-backed securities. Additionally, the Federal Open Market Committee (FOMC) announced that it would likely maintain the federal funds rate near zero "at least through 2015." According to NASDAQ.com, this is effectively a stimulus program which allows the Federal Reserve to relieve $40 billion dollars per month of commercial housing market debt risk. Because of its open-ended nature, QE3 has earned the popular nickname of "QE-Infinity." On 12 December 2012, the FOMC announced increased the amount of open-ended purchases from $40 billion to $85 billion per month. In August 2012 Bank of England issued a report stating that its policies of quantitative easing had benefited mainly the wealthy. For example the report said that its QE program had boosted the value of stocks and bonds by 26 percent, or about $970 billion. About 40 percent of those gains went to the richest 5 percent of British households. Dhaval Joshi, of BCA Research wrote that “QE cash ends up overwhelmingly in profits, thereby exacerbating already extreme income inequality and the consequent social tensions that arise from it". Economist Anthony Randazzo of the Reason Foundation wrote that QE “is fundamentally a regressive redistribution program that has been boosting wealth for those already engaged in the financial sector or those who already own homes, but passing little along to the rest of the economy. It is a primary driver of income inequality”. In September 2012 Donald Trump said on CNBC that "People like me will benefit from this." In May 2013 Federal Reserve Bank of Dallas President Richard Fisher said that cheap money has made rich people richer, but hasn't done quite as much for working Americans. Most of the financial assets in America are owned by the wealthiest 5 percent of Americans. According to Fed data, the top 5 percent own 60 percent of the nation’s individually held financial assets. They own 82 percent of the individually held stocks and more than 90 percent of the individually held bonds.

Sacramento UC Davis Symposium CalPERS environment. Water, air quality, pesticides, herbicides, fungicides, chemicals, fertilizers,

As part of this important initiative, CalPERS has partnered with the UC Davis Graduate School of Management to develop and host the inaugural Sustainability & Finance Symposium on June 7, 2013. The event will be held in the vicinity of Napa Valley’s wine country in Davis, California. Distinguished faculty from the UC Davis Graduate School of Management and theIra M. Millstein Center for Global Markets and Corporate Ownership at Columbia Law School will serve as program committee chairs. The symposium will convene leading academics and practitioners to foster a debate that will lead to a research agenda on sustainability and finance issues. This symposium will be an inquiry into the definitions and relevance of environmental, social, and governance (ESG) factors and related policy issues for long-term capital providers. It will also consider the potential impact of ESG issues on capital markets, companies, and intermediaries in the investment chain, such as asset managers.

Your home is NOT safe! burglary made easy.

Whether you are home or away, your home isnot safe. Now is a good time to be in the home security business or the computer security business. I wanted to be a locksmith when I was inelementary school. Then got into science and computers. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lock_bumping Use by Criminals: Lock bumping is a recent trend in burglaries, which can make it easy and fast to break into homes without needing too much special equipment, and leaving any trace of forced entry. It works almost as well as actually having a key, so the technique can very quickly open about 90% of American household locks. [youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=hr23tpWX8lM&w=420&h=315]

Home bubble. Cash is king. Buy ASAP

Trickle down is finally working. Bail out rich fat cat 1% bankers. Inflate them by QE1 QE2 QE3. Some of that $trillions of fiat money has trickled down to 99% poor who are buying houses again. The rich better signal to Bernanke to clamp down on the money supply or the poor will be able to sell their house for more than their mortgage and get out of debt. They may even buy some deflated acres so they can grow healthy food free and get free exercise in clean air. http://nyti.ms/19aR0yf NYTimes: As Home Sales Heat Up Again, Buyers Must Resort to Cold Cash. All-cash buyers are making it more difficult for first-time buyers to purchase a home in a market that has changed significantly, and prices are quickly rising.
