John Lanchester: Ten Years after the Crash "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Thats where we are with markets: non-change change, in the form of bonus regulation and ring-fencing; no change or change for the worse in the case of complexity and shadow banking and too big to fail; and no overall reduction in the level of risk present in the system. We are back with the issue of impunity. For the people inside the system that caused a decade of misery, no change. For everyone else, a decade of misery, magnified by austerity policies. Note that austerity policies were not recommended by mainstream macroeconomists, who predicted that they would lead to flat or shrinking GDP, as indeed they did. Instead politicians took the crisis as a political inflection point a phrase used to me in private by a Tory in 2009, before the public realised what was about to hit them and seized the opportunity to contract government spending and shrink the state.

Thomas Jones: The President is Missing "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Duncans narrative voice, describing a crucial episode in his presidency barely a month after the event, isnt his private, inner voice; its a public, self-justifying voice, which is perhaps all we can expect from a novel written by a former US president and his collaborators, but anyone hoping for a flash of insight, however brief, into what its like to be both an ordinary, fallible human being and the most powerful person on earth is going to be sorely disappointed.

Sarah Perry: Victorian Hospitalism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Even the worst corner of the worst slum couldnt compete with hospital wards and dissection rooms for filth. Sparrows squabbled over morsels of lung; a rat gnawed at a vertebra. Surgeons took pride in aprons so dirty they could have stood up on their own; one stored his instruments up his sleeve between surgeries to keep them warm. This was the Grand Guignol stage on which Joseph Lister took his place.

How to add push notifications to a web app with Firebase + "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

As web applications evolve, it is increasingly common to come across functionality that youd normally associate with a native app in a web app. Many sites send notifications to their users through the browser for various events that occur within the web app.

Today, Ill show you the steps required, in detail, to achieve such functionality in your web app using Firebase.

Notifications with Firebase

Firebase is a platform that offers various services for mobile and web applications and helps developers build apps quickly with a lot of features.

To send the notifications, we will use the service called Cloud Messaging, which allows us to send messages to any device using HTTP requests.

Project Setup

First of all, you need to have a Firebase account and youll need to create a new project within it.

For this demo setup, I will use a simple project created with the create-react-app, but you can use the same code anywhere else that uses JavaScript.

In addition to that, we need to add the Firebase library to the project.

npm install firebase --save

So lets get coding!

Now that weve done our setup, we can begin coding the module that will be in charge of notifications.

Lets create a file inside the project directory called push-notification.js.

Inside the file, lets create a function that initializes Firebase and passes the keys of your project.

import firebase from 'firebase';
export const initializeFirebase = () => {
firebase.initializeApp({
messagingSenderId: "your messagingSenderId"
});
}

Well, now that we have the function we need to call it.

Inside the entry point of your project, import the function and call it.

import React from 'react';
import ReactDOM from 'react-dom';
import App from './App';
import { initializeFirebase } from './push-notification';
ReactDOM.render(, document.getElementById('root'));
initializeFirebase();
You can find the keys to your project inside the Firebase Console.

Russia Destroys Extraterrestrial Drones "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

On Monday, the Russian military scored a decisive victory over marauding extraterrestrials, said Russian Federal Service Bureau officer Isan Ivanov. His account expands on an official statement issued by the Ministry of Defense, which claims that Russian air defense batteries shot down a group of unmanned drones of unknown origin near Khmeimim Air Base in Syria.

Ivanov said the alien craft employed cloaking technology to penetrate Russian-controlled airspace but were detected by Russias next-generation Air Defense Identification Grid (ADIG) five kilometers from the airfield. Although he would not comment on technology used to defeat the cloak, Ivanov claims at least three aircraft, each approximately thirty-five feet long, were destroyed.

He admits Russias first attempt to destroy the drones failed. Upon detecting the intruders, the airbase commander used a combination of conventional weapons23mm anti-aircraft shells and several short-range ground-to-air missiles. But the extraterrestrials possessed an energy screen that absorbed or repelled kinetic-based weapons. At that point, vehicle-mounted, high-energy lasersa technology Russia has been developing to defeat extraterrestrial threatsengaged and destroyed the invaders.

Ivanov said this is not the first time extraterrestrials have overflown the airbase; in January, a two kilometer wide mothership appeared in the sky above Khmeimim, and in may a pair of smaller vessels travelling at over 7,000 mph flew over the airfield. In those instances, the intruding aircraft disappeared before they could be engaged.

There is a reason, Ivanov said, Khmeimim is such a hotbed of UFO activity: the airbase is a secret staging ground for Vladimir Putins clandestine war against species of malevolent extraterrestrials.

They are constantly probing our defenses. Khmeimim has been a primary base of operations for assaults on alie...

The best move I made in my tech career insights from eight tech ladies. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Im fascinated by the storythe decisions and circumstances that lead people to the lives theyre living. Ive been navigating my first professional Software Engineering job this past month, and have been thinking about everything that set me up for this opportunity. There were some steps that propelled me forward, and some that pulled me back.

So, I asked some of the tech ladies that I adore to share their insights and perspectives on what they view as the best move they made for their careers in tech.

Wed also love to hear from youpop a comment on this post if theres something that youve experienced or done that drove your career forward!

1. RachelGoing back to school.

I attended one of the first US coding bootcamps back in 2015, and the natural next step was to get out there and get a job. But something made me hesitate. I wanted engineering to be my careerI was crazy passionate about programming, but there were huge gaps in my knowledge of Computer Science. I wanted to figure out how computers worked, how to apply design principles, how compilers functioned, how to choose the right data structures and optimise algorithms.

So I applied to CS Masters programmes, and got my top choice, in London. In hindsight, this was the smartest decision I could have madedespite my initial worries about the mountains of debt, and turning down other job offers. The Masters was designed to teach as much of a CS undergrad degree as possible in 1 yearso it was an intense crash course on the fundamentals, exactly what I wanted.

Some highlights were getting to do a great Artificial Intelligence module as my optional subject, and working with Microsoft for my final research projectI built a genetics-based augmented reality app for their HoloLens device. The doors that opened after I graduated were incredible, compared to the position I had been in a year prior.

Rachel (@secretlifeofcode) is a Software Engineer, now based in Dublin. She recently graduated with a Masters in Computer Science from UCL. Shes a former GSoC-er (Google Summer of Code), and former Community Lead for She++ London.

2. Meraldeciding to go all in as a tech entrepreneur.

The best move Ive made so far is when I decided I wanted to be a tech entrepreneur. As a junior at UCLA, I started reaching out to founders/CEOs of tech startups in the LA area, offerin...

Facebook Algorithm Flags The Declaration Of Independence As Hate Speech "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Over the last couple of years major social media, news and video platforms have been actively engaged in the censorship of what they believe to be fake news and information. Often spearheaded by third-party review organizations known to have biased views, there have been countless examples of unpopular speech and commentary that has seen its distribution suppressed or outright banned.

While there is most certainly a human element involved in the review and flagging of information, mega Silicon Valley conglomerates have also implemented automated systems to identify potentially hateful and repulsive content.

To give you an idea of the kind of automation in play and what words and ideas are being identified as running contrary to the principles of media aggregators and distributors, consider that Facebook recently banned Americas founding document from being posted.

Since June 24, the Liberty County Vindicator of Liberty County, Texas, has been sharing daily excerpts from the declaration in the run up to July Fourth. The idea was to encourage historical literacy among the Vindicators readers.

The first nine such posts of the project went up without incident.

But part 10, writesVindicator managing editor Casey Stinnett, did not appear. Instead, The Vindicator received a notice from Facebook saying that the post goes against our standards on hate speech.'

The post in question contained paragraphs 27 through 31 of the Declaration of Independence, the grievance section of the document wherein the put-upon colonists detail all the irreconcilable differences they have with King George III.

Stinnett says that he cannot be sure which exact grievance ran afoul of Facebooks policy, but he assumes that its paragraph 31, which excoria...

Interview: Creative Dad Photoshops His Kids Into the Funniest Situations "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Funny Family Photos by John Wilhelm

This post may contain affiliate links. If you make a purchase, My Modern Met may earn an affiliate commission. Please read our disclosure for more info.

For over seven years, photographer and self-taught digital artist John Wilhelm has creatively chronicled his kids' lives. Through his series of funny family photos, he uses digital manipulation to incorporate their everyday lives and childhood antics into fantastical scenes that are too delightfully outrageous to be real. (Otherwise, we'd definitely be fooled!) Wilhelm has seamlessly stitched together his subjects so well that it looks like one cohesive scene.

Wilhelm is always looking for great ideas for his photo manipulations, and its become a family affair over the years. His wife and four kids help him come up with concepts, although he admits that the older they are getting, the harder it is to get them in the studio to pose. But, dont expect for Wilhelm to stop Photoshopping his kids into outrageous gym sessions, feeding frenzies, and skiing competitions anytime soon. Wilhelm and his wife just welcomed their fourth child so well have many more years of these photos to enjoy.

We were elated to speak with Wilhelm about his work, from how he got started to how he honed his skills. Scroll down to read our exclusive interview with him.

The unforgettable lessons Ive learned from 100 boring conferences "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by Tyler Callahan on Unsplash

Ive been to many conferences over the last twenty years. Mostly the speakers droned on about their topics, which were easily forgotten. Thinking back, only a few big ideas really stuck with me. These are three ideas Ive come back to over and over again in my career.

There is a big difference between designed well and well-designed.

Graphic design legend David Carson gave a tedious presentation at one of the first conferences I ever attended. However, fifteen years later, I still clearly remember a pair of slides from his talk that looked something like this:

(photo credits STML and Bernard Hermant)

There is a chasm between a concept that looks professionally designed versus a design that truly communicates your message.

The sign on the left says, Please dont park here, thanks. The sign on the right says, Try parking here PUNK and Ill rip your head off your shoulders. The second sign says a lot in just a few strokes. Its more effective. Its better designed.

Q: Which No parking sign would you obey?
A: The one tagged by the axe-wielding psychopath.

Take PowerPoint design seriously.

Yeah, you read that right. Over a decade ago, I heard a design executive from Adobe talk about how she got her start. She explained how, during the first few years of her career, she was bored to death designing slides for her bosses. Regardless, she took to the task with an open heart and poured her energy into designing the best damn PowerPoint slides.

In the process, she developed communication skills that served her well later onand more importantly, an attitude that every design challenge is worthy of her effort. Amen.

Meadville takes another step closer to fluoridation of water "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection issued a permit Tuesday to the Meadville Area Water Authority to construct and install approved facilities and equipment for fluoridation of the water supplied to customers, according to Melanie Williams, DEP community relations coordinator.

The permit only authorizes MAWA to construct and install the fluoridation equipment.

The construction permit does not authorize MAWA to operate the facilities or to fluoridate finished water, Williams wrote in an email.

After soliciting bids for the project and having the work completed, MAWA would then need to apply for and receive an operations permit before the system could actually used to add fluoride to the water it supplies to customers, according to Thomas Thompson, senior project manager at Gannett Fleming, which serves as consulting engineer to MAWA.

Technically, we cannot feed any chemicals or make any changes to the water until the DEP operations permit is issued, Thompson said.

In issuing the permit, DEP would inspect the fluoridation system to make sure it has been installed properly and meets the safety parameters and other conditions contained construction permit, according to Thompson.

Both Thompson and MAWA Project Manager Bob Harrington said Tuesday it was too early to estimate a timeline for completion of the fluoridation system. The system already has been designed.

The MAWA board will likely address soliciting bids for the project and the construction time frame at its monthly meeting on July 18. Meetings take place at 2 p.m. inside the MAWA office, 18160 Rogers Ferry Road.

Learning of the construction permit approval was exciting, according to Thompson.

Its taken us a while to get here, but it is (exciting), he said.

Dow and USAID to provide fluoride-free drinking water to Kasarani residents "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Over 6,000 Kasarani residents Nairobi County have a reason to smile after an agency commissions installation of a system that will help remove fluoride in drinking water sources in the area.

The Dow Chemical Company (Dow) and the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), in collaboration with the Little Sisters of St. Francis (LSOSF) commissioned the system at the St. Francis Community Hospital and learning institutions.

The program will help more than 6,000 students, parents and community at large get access to clean drinking water.

Research shows that approximately 20 million Kenyans suffer from teeth and bone fluorosis as a result of high levels of fluoride in underground water especially in the Rift Valley region.

Gracing the event, held at the St. Francis Hospital along Kasarani Mwiki road, was the U.S Undersecretary of Commerce Gilbert Kaplan and the U.S Ambassador of Kenya Robert Godec among other guests from the U.S.

Through the collaboration with Dow and Little Sisters, we have managed to address the immediate challenge of the water services and the quality of water within the institution and the wider community. This project allowed us come together to find a way to solve a major challenge that could not be resolved without collaboration, USAID/ KIWASH chief of party Joe Sanders said.

The hospital could not hide its happiness for being one of the beneficiaries of the project.

Our long desired dream has come true. Where partnership exists, the fruits are seen and today, we have access to safe and adequate drinking water because of the partnership initiated by Dow and USAID, Sister Irimina Nungari, Little Sisters of St Francis.

Dow and USAID will offer training to various engineers on site, to ensure the sustainability of the project.

House Looks At Forcing States To Drill Offshore . . . Or Else "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

House Looks At Forcing States To Drill Offshore . . . Or Else

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

House Republicans cant claim anything if theyre not earning their keep for massive corporations and other special interests whether it be genetically modified food, the banking and finance industry, pharmaceutical companies, the Israel lobby, and, of course, Big Oil.

In keeping with their history of doing the bidding of large interests, House Republicans have just put forward a proposals to impose fees on states that do not allow offshore drilling in state waters off their coasts. The measure is designed to punish states for opposing the Federal governments plan to expand offshore drilling that began under the Obama administration and is continuing under the Trump administration.

The plan to expand offshore drilling has not only met with resistance from environmental activists, even Democrats and Republicans in offshore states have expressed concern and opposition to the plan after public outcry, a stance that has become more entrenched after the 2010 Deepwater Horizon disaster.
