It’s a music thread, and we’ve been talking about Presidents of the United States of America, so …

I love this song.

Takes me back to 80’s Al Dimeola. Not that it’s his sound just the mood.

Damn. Haven’t thought of Al in ages. Lost my music collection years ago and haven’t heard some of those 80’s albums in years.

Used to play them to test repaired audiophile equipment. At appropriate volumes, of course!

I know you don’t do Twitter but you can look at Umphrey’s McGee’s FOH Engineer’s Twitter: @flyingeyepro

He also has a blog, which is pure audio geekery: flyingeyepro.wordpress.com

The guy was in the Navy in a former career, he was an engineer on nuclear submarines.

Have I told you folks how cool the band Umphrey’s McGee is?

I haven’t blown an amp in a long time - most of the guys I’ve worked with use tube amps, and of course, you know what blows first in a tube amp. This was actually our in-ear monitor system, and I’m guessing that a faulty power point cooked the power supply to the central distribution unit.

China must weigh the risk of getting too greedy at the prospect of a Trump administration. As enticing as an amazingly incompetent administration must be, the downside is that the inept Trump will embolden Russia.
The rare Donald Trump nugget I agree with with was a comment to the effect “When you owe the bank 1 million dollars, they tell you what to do. When you owe them 50 million, you tell them what to do.” The relationship between the US and China still goes two ways. China can exploit Trump but like I said, they can’t get too greedy, and they’ll know they only have a four year window

Unfortunately, I’m not as intimately familiar with the equipment as I probably should be. I can tell you that if you’re looking to do voiceovers, you’d want to find a nice cardioid mic, to minimize pickup outside the direction the mic is pointing.

Ah, the kind of stuff that happens as equipment gets used and moved constantly. Guess you could call that kind of damage road kill?

Sorry.

Was involved with some early work toward using switching power supplies for large audio amps, just for giggles and as a technical challenge. Switchers seem to be the standard now for most amps I notice for sound reinforcement, and I’m just wondering how well they hold up. Easier to haul than the old linear supply stuff I’m sure.

re: #20 thedopefishlives

You’d also want to EQ it with a high-pass filter to eliminate some of the boominess that comes with the increased sensitivity in the microphone’s preferred direction. I also do subtractive EQ - I sweep the frequency range for things that sound … off … and remove them from the EQ using a sharp notch filter.

Unshaken Defiance  Dec 2, 2016 • 9:04:54pm

re: #20 thedopefishlives

I gave up on getting any dialog at the shop when we are working the metals and I’m recording. Torch or furnace or just ventilation it’s a mess. That’s a welcome suggestion on mic type. Of course trying to get a nice studio sound but on the fly and for a dime.

Yeah, I know the tone. I don’t know the exact settings that would reproduce that kind of soft-AM studio tone, but I’m sure you could reproduce it with a little experimentation. Radio stations might use a hypercardioid, so you might check around, just to see.

That new to me Olympus E-P3 is a fun camera. Updated the firmware tonight so it recognises my 32 gb card. Nice feel to it as it has a decent amount of heft from a proper metal construction. It reminds me of my once upon a time Leica IIIf though none of my glass is in Summitar class.

34
thedopefishlives  Dec 2, 2016 • 9:15:13pm

re: #30 thedopefishlives

For the record - a hypercardioid has a slight sensitivity behind the microphone, whereas a cardioid is more or less completely dead behind the microphone. I suspect that radio stations use microphones with some degree of sensitivity in both directions (in front of and behind the microphone), for interview purposes, so you might even look into a figure-8 pattern microphone. The point is to find a mic pattern that matches your studio and the frequency resonance in the room. A lot of the deficiencies can be resolved in EQ mixing, but by no means all.

I’m gonna need to dig around and take care of the hole in my current music collection.

It’s funny how memory works sometimes. When I read 80’s Al, I flashed back to hooking up a set of repaired Western Electric high powered mono tube amps recovered from an old theater to a set of Magnepans and throwing Al on the turntable.

Funny how the test took that album and a few more before I was sure all was okay. ;-)

I lost a collection of over 4000 LPs, most in prime condition. I know there’s a ton of stuff I used to enjoy that I’m sure I’ve forgotten. Which is a shame. I’ve often thought of how much I’d enjoy a day with the old collection. Or two. Or three. Sigh.

I populated much of my Itunes library from the Itunes store, and a lot of those songs obviously came from the CDs I didn’t have.I still think that would only represent about 1k albums, so I can hardly imagine that kind of collection.

Yah, still makes me sad. A lot of great music that will never make it to digital media and so will never be replaced. Over half the collection was classical with a lot of special recordings and pressings. Some amazing performances from incredible artists that most people will never hear. And now lost. Sigh.

Depends how low budget is low budget. My mic of choice for male VO is the Shure SM7. It runs 300 bucks or so. Add in a USB mic processor from Presonus or Focusrite and you’re closing in on 500.

Heil makes some great lower-end options. Or haunt eBay for classic EV RE15 or RE16 for a hundred bucks or so. I don’t like the EV RE20 and its clones. You see them in radio all the time, but they’re really made for kick drums and sound too boomy on most voices.

Unless you have a real studio to work in, look for a large-diaphragm dynamic instead of a condenser. Dynamics are a little less sensitive to room noise. You can get a large-diaphragm condenser from CHYNA!! for as little as 30 bucks, and you’ll find it to be surprisingly good, but any condenser, whether a cheap one or a kilobuck Neumann, will hear EVERYTHING in the room. Computer fan, dog barking, fridge motor, you name it.

I really liked the first few seasons of House, then the plots got to be too predictable. I credit the writers for introducing House’s opiate addiction and Thirteen’s health problems as sub-plots, but there wasn’t enough there to keep me interested. I’ve burned out on NCIS for much the same reason — love the characters, but not the ongoing Muslim terror menace plots.

He’s stupid, then. Taiwan press would obviously publish it, and then Trump even tweeted about it. Aside from that, the PRC monitors communications, and Tsai and Trump made it even easier by speaking (I assume) on a non-secure line. The Chinese are well educated and very wily diplomats and negotiators. Trump will try to con them, but he’ll end up being the loser, and he won’t even realize it.

re: #84 William Lewis

This is why he’s gone bankrupt 6 times. He has never understood when he was outclassed.

I’ve read up on his Atlantic City ventures. He violated just about every item of advice business experts offer newbies. AC already had four casinos in operations, IIRC. They were fronted by the big names in Las Vegas casino gambling, and they were already finding it hard to operate profitably in a small town with limited transport access. So, in comes Trump (a casino newbie), he leases one casino and proceeds to build another, thereby competing against himself, as well as already established casinos operated by the pros.

He persuades investors he has below-prime interest rates on the mega-loans he needs to build the new one and reno the old one — that was a lie. In fact, he couldn’t get decent financing. He says he’s going to fly in gamblers from NYC on his own airline, but instead brings them in by bus. Only high rollers and big names get ‘coptered in, because he doesn’t want to spend the money on lowly retirees gambling their pensions away. Pretty soon, the casinos can’t make payroll and Trump can’t service his debt load or the lease payments on the first casino. Total disaster for the employees and the investors, but Trump manages to skate away with minimal damage.

Then, there’s the Plaza Hotel fiasco. He bought the property mostly to satisfy his ego, and paid way too much for it IMO. Then he spent even more money to renovate it. The Plaza has name recognition, to be sure, but New York is chock-a-block with famous hotels. A wiser developer may have spent top dollar to buy the Plaza, but waited on major renovations until the property started turning a profit. Again, he was using other people’s money, so what did he care? Eventually, as part of his bankruptcy deal, he renegotiated lower payments to the NYC banks which lent him the money, and gave up his majority share in the company.

He’s a financial klutz.

I wanted to come in and thank a couple people here for suggestions they made on how to get over the recall petition I was facing. It appears to have gone down in defeat, as it is not on Monday’s village board agenda. (Such things are limited by time, and it failed to gather the required number of signatures.)

Since I could get no direction from the state or county party how to proceed, I followed the advice of those here (I cannot find your names now, so thank you as you know who you are) to tell people why it would be in their best interest not to sign such a thing.

I went around town and simply talked to everyone on the expense of a special election that the village would have to pay for. Another recall attempt that happened only a year before I moved here is still raw on a lot of people’s nerves (that petition ended in an election that failed to oust the board member, who is now our chairwoman pro tem).

Only one person asked if there was another method to oust me aside from the petition, to which I responded truthfully. a) I can be voted out in 2018, b) If my seat was declared vacant by the village board for failure to show for three meetings in a row without just cause c) If I was convicted of a crime that caused (b) or d) If I moved out of the village, became a citizen of another country, or quit.

Another person here at LGF asked what a village trustee is. Essentially it is the same as a city council member, but villages are specially-defined entities in the Nebraska Statutes.

A village is an incorporated entity of not less than one hundred and not more than eight hundred people. A Village Board of Trustees must have a fixed membership of five trustees (whereas cities of the second and first classes may have variable numbers of councilmembers elected in wards or at-large, all village trustees are elected at-large). Trustees organise themselves after an election, whereas a city council and mayor have specific duties. Trustees do not have to be paid, city councils do.

We call our chairwoman the mayor colloquially, as we would have to be a city over eight hundred organised as a city of the second class to actually have a mayor. (Mayors are always elected at-large in cities.)

In my county there are two incorporated cities of the second class, and my incorporated village.

nebraskalegislature.gov

The link above and succeeding ordinances under section 17-201 and following describe the duties and powers of villages (and by extension, the duties and powers of village trustees), pretty boring unless you like state statues to cure insomnia.

The village board’s upcoming Monday meeting is the first after the election, so the organisation of the board is the first item of business on the agenda. (The Chairwoman Pro Tem will likely become Chairwoman. I am the most senior on the board by continuous time, but not by total time, so we’ll see what happens to me. Currently my duties include Sewer Superintendent - a job that’s always looking down, and Flag Committee Chair). Organising a special election is not on the agenda.

Taipei is now saying President Tsai initiated the call to Trump. The claim smells phony.

Check this excerpt, and see if you agree with me.

Alex Huang, the Taiwan presidential spokesman, told the Post that the conversation was arranged through “the usual channel between Taiwan and the United States”.

“The call was initiated by Taipei through the liaison and agreement channels between our two sides,” he said in response to a Post question.

Edwin Feulner, founder of the Washington-based Heritage Foundation, played a key part in setting up the call, according to Taiwan’s Central News Agency, quoting a source familiar with the matter.

scmp.com

The usual channels would suggest the State Department and the White House would have known about the call before it happened. They did not, it seems. The usual channels would not include the Heritage Foundation, either.

Someone is trying to save Trump’s face here. Beijing will already know these reports are bogus, but it will still blame Tsai for the transgression. Trump may avoid criticism from Beijing for his part.

Anymouse  Dec 3, 2016 • 1:17:39am

I’m guessing China won’t be able to ignore Mr. Trump’s faux pas, even if it wants to, as this has become international news.

bbc.com

Chinese Foreign Minister Wang Yi dismissed the call as a “petty trick” by Taiwan, Chinese state media said.

Deutche Welle covers the fallout further:
dw.com

The first response from Beijing on the matter was a statement from China’s foreign minister, Wang Yi, who expressed the hope that relations with the US wouldn’t be “interfered with or damaged” as a result of the call. He also described it as a “petty action” by Taiwan.

On Saturday, Taiwan asked for China to view the call “calmly.”

“We call on China to face the new situation in the Asia-Pacific region and work with us towards developing a benign cross-strait relationship and create a new way that will benefit the development of peace, prosperity and stability for the region,” Taiwan’s policy making body on China, the Mainland Affairs Council, said in a statement.

National Institute of Standards and Technology urges next President to strengthen cybersecurity in the next hundred days. (NIST did not say whether that included Mr. Trump’s cell phones.)

nist.gov

More at the link, first paragraphs of the article:

WASHINGTON—To protect and continue to expand the digital economy, the next U.S. president must strengthen collaboration between the public and private sectors before, during and after cybersecurity events, according to a new report released today by a blue ribbon Presidential Commission.

“When it comes to cybersecurity, organizations cannot operate in isolation. It is impossible to stop all attacks. Resilience must be a core component of any cybersecurity strategy,” the commissioners said in their report.

The Commission on Enhancing National Cybersecurity was established by President Obama (Executive Order 13718) with the explicit purpose of making recommendations to strengthen cybersecurity in both the public and private sectors.

The 90-page report emphasizes the need for partnerships between the public and private sectors, as well as international engagement. It also discusses the role consumers must play in enhancing our digital security. The report categorizes its recommendations within six overarching imperatives focused on infrastructure, investment, consumer education, workforce capabilities, government operations, and requirements for a fair and open global digital economy.

Noting that “the attacker has the advantage,” the commission laid out actions that government, industry and consumers can take to more effectively address a range of cybersecurity threats, from nation-state breaches of government infrastructure to denial-of-service attacks that exploit the “Internet of Things” (IoT).

Michelle Malkin sets the record straight.

The truth about the Holtzclaw case is that a monstrous miscarriage of justice has occurred in the courts of law and public opinion. Just raising the possibility of his innocence has caused an angry backlash. Last week, social justice activists forced a billboard company in Oklahoma City to yank an advertisement for my new investigative web-based TV series on the case for crtv.com that simply asked: “What if he didn’t do it?”

Here’s what the protesters don’t what you to know.

Prosecutors failed to present a single, corroborating witness or a single piece of direct forensic evidence proving Holtzclaw committed any of the 36 alleged assaults allegedly perpetrated at 17 different crime scenes.

Point is, a) we don’t know, perhaps the seals were broken for years; b) a “warranty void if broken” seal is not the same as a “do not break or integrity of count is compromised”. The post makes it sound like broken seals are prima facie evidence of vote tampering, and as William says it’s at least as likely that it was regular maintenance with no malicious intent.

Edited to add: “difficult to dispute the machines were tampered with” is a very charged way of interpreting the evidence; someone replacing a gear is “tampering” but not altering the operation of the device.

There is no prima facie evidence…but on the other hand LOCK ‘EM UP!!! VOTER FRAUD!!!

China already has problems at home with “radical Islam,” so I doubt it wants to cozy up to them to rule the world.

OT Drive-by: I was never a huge fan of Seinfeld, but I know some of you here at LGF are. I was just over at Amazon an noticed that the boxed (33) DVD set of the entire series is one of “Today’s Deals.” At 44% off it’s only $39.99, so if you like Seinfeld it seems like a good bargain to me.

That’s all—later, lizards.

OAKLAND, Calif. (AP) — The Latest on a deadly fire in warehouse party in Oakland, California(all times local):

7:35 a.m.

Fire officials say at least nine people died in a blaze that broke out during a party in a warehouse late Friday night in the San Francisco Bay Area.

Oakland Fire Chief Teresa Deloche-Reed says at least another 13 people are unaccounted for as of Saturday morning.

Deloche-Reed says the fire department still must do a thorough search of the building.

The fire started about 11:30 p.m. Friday. It tore through the building during an event featuring musician Golden Donna’s 100% Silk West Coast tour, the East Bay Times reports.

Authorities told KTVU-TV about 50 people were in the building, which houses a group of artists and their studios.

Gah hard to actually type that out I dislike him so much. Any way look out for more of this sort of thing. Our rights are so diminished near the border.

Ed Ou is used to crossing borders.
The award-winning Canadian photojournalist has spent the past decade travelling to the kinds of places where being in the media can be a hazard to your health: Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, Egypt and Turkey, to name a few.
So when he booked a flight last October to the US from Canada to cover the Standing Rock pipeline protests in North Dakota for the Canadian Broadcasting Company, he was relieved to be somewhere with press freedoms.
“In my mind I had nothing to hide, (America) is actually one of the few places in the world where you can just say you’re a journalist,” he told the BBC.

But when he told US border officials at the Vancouver airport he was travelling to North Dakota to cover Standing Rock, he says they pulled him aside and proceeded to interrogate him for six hours. When he refused to unlock his mobile on the grounds that it contained confidential information about sources, they forcibly took his SIM cards and made copies of his reporter’s notebook and personal diary.

China makes it official

China lodged a diplomatic protest on Saturday after U.S. President-elect Donald Trump spoke by phone with President Tsai Ing-wen of Taiwan, but blamed the self-ruled island Beijing claims as its own for the “petty” move.

The 10-minute telephone call with Taiwan’s leadership was the first by a U.S. president-elect or president since President Jimmy Carter switched diplomatic recognition from Taiwan to China in 1979, acknowledging Taiwan as part of “one China.”

China’s Foreign Ministry said it had lodged “stern representations” with what it called the “relevant U.S. side,” urging the careful handling of the Taiwan issue to avoid any unnecessary disturbances in ties. “The one China principle is the political basis of the China-U.S. relationship,” it said.

I think what is with the PRC and ROC is that the PRC wants to be seen as the legitimate government of China which is why the U.S. publicly recognizing One China matters more than the arms sales. But yeah my brother’s kind of annoying me with his concern trolling on the issue. As I said, he’s just a kid (15) but he basically said I was being hypocritical for being aware of offending the PRC’s sensibilities while at the same time being very wary of Russia and Trump’s pro Russia overtures. It’s not out of love for the PRC, it’s keeping them happy and less likely to do a massive military build up.

I have to admit I really rolled my eyes hearing Trump refer to him as Mad Dog to his adoring crowds when I was on my home from work yesterday on NPR. As I said last night, I really hope that Mattis should he be confirmed is more a George Marshall than George Patton. George Marshall not George Patton IMO is the best American general of the 20th century. He doesn’t have an epic movie or the idolized version of him hammered on by Trump but the man was our best. I believe Truman even called him the finest American of the age.

Thanks. Great way of looking at it. In a sense by acknowledging the PRC, we are in fact keeping Taiwan more safe than we did with the previous policy. It does help that old hardliners like Mao on the PRC side and Chiang on the ROC side have long since passed on. As I said, I think the PRC really wants to be seen as the legitimate government of China and that’s what they want most from our government and as much as I don’t like the PRC, it’s smart international relations to do that.

This searching of electronic devices has been going on for a long time. The border search exception to the Fourth Amendment pretty much negates the requirement for probable cause allows the searches. I remember reading about it a good while back.

It naturally got a lot more focus after 9/11, but AFAIK the exception had always existed. It’s certainly unsettling that someone like the Orange Vulgarian could really use that in bad, bad ways.

The DOJ published this United States Attorneys’ Bulletin (PDF) on “Border Issues” in November 2014. I only read the first couple of pages, but it looks kinda interesting (assuming it doesn’t get into too much lawyer-speak).

That’s exactly what I tried telling him. His big mistake and this I attribute to his youth is treating Trump as normal. My parents and I who have been around for more Presidents know Trump isn’t normal.

Back in what are beginning to look like the good old days of the cold war, I had a serious uphill struggle to get people to realize that the Soviet Union wasn’t normal — they didn’t realize that in that sort of place, there’s no such thing as a private sector. (You don’t need to be young to make that kind of mistake, although it doesn’t hurt.)

I had to tell a conservative friend of my father’s that Putin was no commie but rather a right wing nationalist. His response? Well have you ever personally talked to the man? Uh no but Putin’s actions are of a right wing nationalist not a communist. Trotsky’s big thing was to spread the Soviet revolution to other country which Stalin ironically did later after years of being a proponent of socialism in one country. Putin is a pan-Russian nationalist. He sees Ukraine, Belarus, and the other countries as being part of Greater Russia.

A reminder about this friend of my father’s though to show you that he’s a naive guy. He thought Trump won the town hall debate because of the soft question about what the candidate admired most about the other and he thought Clinton’s answer about admiring Trump’s kids was a cop out and Trump gave a great answer about how he admires her for being relentless. I pretty much told him that his guy contradicted himself on that since Trump repeatedly trashed Clinton’s stamina. And the fact that it was a soft question. He’s not a bad person but he is your Trump voter, very low information.

I think Trump will try to throw China under the bus and align with Russia. Might think he knows better than decades of careful diplomacy already.

And there are people who love Trump for the fact that he’s “shaking up” diplomacy. I know one of them, a professor at an elite private university in computer science. He loves Trump. He loves that Trump had a conversation with Taiwan that was outside the expectations of everyone else. I have taken to telling him every day, “XXXX, you voted for a fucking idiot.”

re: #206 CuriousLurker

This searching of electronic devices has been going on for a long time. The border search exception to the Fourth Amendment pretty much negates the requirement for probable cause allows the searches. I remember reading about it a good while back.

It naturally got a lot more focus after 9/11, but AFAIK the exception had always existed. It’s certainly unsettling that someone like the Orange Vulgarian could really use that in bad, bad ways.

This is about the only thing I agree with obnoxious hate preacher Steven Anderson on. I oppose these warrantless searches near the border. (The difference between him and me, however, is that I answered the question regarding my citizenship through gritted teeth. He refused to answer, refused to cooperate and was eventually Tased for his trouble.)

This questioning and searching is done in relatively remote places, along highways, and not in cities, where people would be more likely to get riled up about warrantless searches. I’m pretty sure if the wealthy people of Tucson (well within the 100 mile limit) or south Chandler (here in the Phx area) had to go through a checkpoint to get to and from work every day, they’d be up in arms.

Marjorie Amonett Reynolds has announced her resignation as the Lubbock County Democratic Chair.

“With regrets, I want to inform you of my impending resignation,” she wrote on November 23 to Gilberto Hinojosa, Chair of the Texas Democratic Party.

Reynolds indicated that some local members of the party treated her badly.

Her letter to the Texas Democratic Chair said, “While all of the Precinct Chairs are not rebellious, arcane, vindictive, self-centered, possessive, short-sighted, spoiled, [and] idiotic, the many who are will undoubtedly drive away the ones who are not.”
