I take it this is another offshoot of the Snarky Puppy family of musicians since Michael League is here working his bass magic and I believe Jason Thomas has done some pupper tunes too. Good stuff. They all sure do keep busy.

Please excuse the OT for just a moment but I’m currently watching the Valspar Championship from Florida with Tiger Woods doing quite well. Anyway, I don’t remember when I’ve seen a gallery that large. Tiger probably has something to do with that.

Here we go again. Another malicious network appears in Cyberwar 1. State sponsored again.

Potent Malware that hid for six years spread through routers
Complex ecosystem
“The discovery of Slingshot reveals another complex ecosystem where multiple components work together in order to provide a very flexible and well-oiled cyber-espionage platform,” Kaspersky Lab researchers wrote in a 25-page report published Friday. “The malware is highly advanced, solving all sorts of problems from a technical perspective and often in a very elegant way, combining older and newer components in a thoroughly thought-through, long-term operation, something to expect from a top-notch well-resourced actor.”

Russian state TV warns ‘traitors’ of the dangers of living in Britain

A presenter on Russian state television has issued an apparent threat to “traitors” living in Britain. Kirill Kleymenov warned of the dangers of spying on Russia and advised those who betrayed their country: “Don’t choose Britain as a place to live.”

The comments, made on Channel One’s Vremya news programme on Wednesday evening, came amid speculation over who was behind the attempted murder of a double agent on British soil.
“I don’t wish death on anyone, but, purely for educational purposes, I have a warning for anyone who dreams of such a career,” he reportedly said.

“The profession of a traitor is one of the most dangerous in the world.”

He described alcoholism, drug addiction, stress and depression as the “professional illnesses of a traitor” and also warned of heart attacks, strokes, car accidents and suicide.

”……..as well as gas exposure, polonium or sudden lead ingestion, and, yes, comrades, even defenestration: British windows are notoriously easy to fall out of.”

In other words Jared & her are utterly unqualified and wouldn’t be there at all if Trump wasn’t her Dad. This is overt, flagrant nepotism & if these people were capable of any honest introspection they would never arrogate themselves to positions so far beyond their capabilities.

now plug that next to last night’s navarro:

“This is the president’s vision,” said Peter Navarro, Trump’s ascendant trade adviser. “My function, really, as an economist is to try to provide the underlying analytics that confirm his intuition. And his intuition is always right in these matters”

and that’s a pretty good summary of how this admin runs - totally unqualified sycophantic family and other morans who kiss the ass of the boss who by declaration is “always right”

Given the recent revelations on Kaspersky, the cynic in me is thinking that “top-notch well-sourced actor” is probably the same intelligence agency that Kaspersky acts as a front for (Russia’s FSB) and one of their espionage tools got into the wild and are now trying to cover their tracks. Kaspersky is already on the NSA’s and FBI’s watchlists, and the last thing they want is some further attention.

Ironically one of the more sane gun channels on Youtube recently did a week long experiment of eating according to WWII British rationing. It was a bit bland but very healthy, nutritious & filling and with the various “holes” intentionally left for things not rationed, could be kept from being to boring.

Did you know that under World War II rationing, the health of the British public improved by virtually every objective measure? Caloric intake increased, lifespan increased, and infant mortality decreased. Despite being an island nation under severe submarine blockade, the United Kingdom managed to not just provide food for its millions of inhabitants, but actually build and maintain the public trust in government rationing. How did this happen? We will explore the question all week, while Ian eats a diet of only what a typical British family would have eaten during the dark days of the Blitz.

Day 1 Menu:

Breakfast: Oatmeal Porridge, tea
Lunch: Leek & Potato Soup, bread & margarine, water
Tea: Vanilla Depression Cake, tea
Dinner: Cottage Pie, ale

I wasn’t born yet, but I still remember family stories of my oldest brother who was around 12 at the time, got into it with a goose on my grandparents old farm. My mother was visiting relation that had taken over her old home after my grandfather gave it to them and retired from farming.

I guess it was rather amusing to the farmers but scared the crap out of my brother. It came at him and jumped up wings flapping and he fell down. He got up running and the goose chased him. I don’t think I ever heard what he did to piss the goose off.

He never wanted to be around a goose ever again even though he grew up to be 6’7” and 275. He was that traumatized.

Geese are very territorial. I would fish with my cousin in Center Valley Pa many a moon ago. I would stay with them for a week once a year. The best part was we would be dropped off with some bait and tackle and just wander farmland and streams for about 6 hours. Had a pickup point. Catch grasshoppers, minnies. Discovered black angus bulls are not to fucked with. Basic milk cows have a demonic side when in herd formation not chewing cud. And geese are vicious bastards. We had a couple of instances with about 8-10 geese in tight formation, wings wide, honking. First time we just tried to use our hands to fend them off. Nope. Bastards bite. Hard. We learned to go around the houses that had them.

Don’t peel it with a peeler.

Cut in half, then into half-circles, then work around the exterior trimming away the rind, all with a heavy knife. I use a cheap Chinese cleaver, which has enough heft that you can use any part of the blade. If using a French-type knife, hack with the heel of the blade.

Much faster, a bit safer, and it won’t screw up you peeler.

Sort of opposite to the tripe discussions:

National Trust apologises to Cornish after appearing to endorse putting cream on scones first

[…]

“We’d like to reassure our Cornish community that our catering team would never make such a heinous mistake and that our jam and cream are usually served in little pots so the order of their application is not subject to such appalling error. Rest assured, your mothers are safe here.”

[…]

In 1998, Cornwall succeeded in having ‘Cornish clotted cream’ assigned PDO status under an EU directive, as long as the milk is produced in Cornwall and the cream has a fat content of more than 55 per cent.

The exact origin of the cream tea is not known, although local historians revealed in 2014 that they had found evidence of monks serving clotted cream and strawberry preserves with bread as long as 1,000 years ago.

I was just looking for a recipe…

A thought on that, along the lines of “I don’t ever want this happening to Democrats”, I wonder if it would be a good idea to require those who get < 10% of the vote in two primaries close to the same date to drop out. This would have thinned out the Republican field pretty quickly.

Don’t peel it with a peeler.

Cut in half, then into half-circles, then work around the exterior trimming away the rind, all with a heavy knife. I use a cheap Chinese cleaver, which has enough heft that you can use any part of the blade. If using a French-type knife, hack with the heel of the blade.

Much faster, a bit safer, and it won’t screw up you peeler.

I want him to win, and his changes are pretty good right now. But the bar isn’t “Democrats win every race.” A one vote win by the Republicans will scare them big time. And, as I wondered yesterday, I kind of wonder if some of them are hoping Saccone loses because Trump got involved.

re: #124 Backwoods_Sleuth

Trump’s a twit who opened the door to Jong Un calling the shots. Trump gave up leverage on North Korea the moment Trump opened his yapper.

North Korea hasn’t had a moment like this in decadesever, where they’ve got a US leader on a leash.

Trump and Fox think that this is all helping the US, but there’s zero evidence the US has achieved anything by Trump giving up the demand/requirement that the North Koreans first dismantle their nuclear program before we do direct talks.

Guess who gets screwed by all this? South Korea and Japan, because this helps create a schism between the longtime allies of the US. North Korea gets a win for doing nothing.

Promising to not launch missile tests is easy when the North Koreans can use the time to do more tinkering with their systems and their nuclear program continues to inch forward.

At the same time, Trump’s busy bitching about the Iran deal, which has kept Iran’s nuclear ambitions in check. Trump can’t help but try to unravel that deal too, which makes one wonder how and why Trump’s actively undermining US national security all over the world. None of this benefits the US. It does help the Russians, who benefit from the chaos Trump has sown among our allies and partners.

This is all helping Putin beyond his wildest dreams.

The P-40 got a bad rap because its lack of dual-stage superchargers meant it couldn’t climb up to the altitude of the Bf 109 and FW-190, and so made a poor showing in Northern Europe. In the Pacific, it was sturdy and serviceable, albeit outclassed in maneuverability by the Zero; but the Zero couldn’t out-dive the P-40, and high-speed running passes were a favorite tactic of Allied fighter pilots over the islands. In Africa, the P-40 was the superior fighter until later editions of the Bf 109 and Spitfire eventually made it obsolete, and even then its durability was such that it persisted in the ground-attack role until the growing prevalence of the P-51 in the European sector freed up some P-47s to bring the rain.

Modern evidence is showing that the P-40 could out maneuver the Zero - the danger was if you let yourself slow down. The Zero’s control forces became very heavy over 250 while the P-40’s was good through out it’s flight envelope. The best tactic was what modern pilots call a “low yo-you” where you use the energy of a decent to turn inside your enemy. As long as you kept your exit speed high enough (which is why they abused the engines by pushing them as high as 75” when the manual said 44” for maximum continuous flying O_o ) you could, in fact, out turn a Zero and quite a few pilots did.

Yeah, I just went to Wikipedia after posting and read about how Allied pilots generally said that a P-40 and a Zero were on equal terms as long as you kept your nose down and didn’t lose too much speed.

I agree, but DeVos doesn’t seem to believe public schools turn out highly intelligent students like the Parkland students. Her focus seems to be on how to use public funding to enrich her buddies via charter schools run by private companies. We tried that here in my Middle GA city years ago. Edison received a multi-million dollar contract to ”transform” a struggling public school. The company had promised to increase student test scores. The venture was a major fail. The city ended the contract and gave Edison the boot in less than two years.

I agree, but DeVos doesn’t seem to believe public schools turn out high intelligent students like the Parkland students. Her focus seems to be on how to use public funding to enrich her buddies via charter schools run by private companies. We tried that here in my Middle GA city years ago. Edison received a multi-million dollar contract to ”transform” a struggling public school. The company had promised to increase student test scores. The venture was a major fail. The city ended the contract and gave Edison the boot in less than two years.

Betsy Blackwater is on an overt mission to destroy public education.

“Get out of the new world if you can’t lend a hand…”

I talk politics with my kids, and I have them read and watch things to expand what they know (like I’m making my youngest read The Library of Babel by Jorge Luis Borges). My middle gets rather frustrated at times at how incurious his classmates are, and how little their families seem to engage with them on topics. Then again, I get frustrated at the people at work for the same reason.

They’re outsiders, looking in, and critiquing the “many problems” they see in public schools without realizing that the “many problems” they’re identifying has everything to do with their policy positions on public education.

I think they’re causing these problems to weaken the public education system.

Son2 blew away his Olympics of the Mind teacher by identifying Moshe Dayan. She wanted to know how an Alabama Goy HS kid would know that. He admitted that it came from our dinner time dirty joke about a rabbi, a parrot, and the good general.

re: #172 Decatur Deb

In run-up to special election in U.S. 18th District, Conor Lamb makes pitch to coal miners

“You elect this man to Congress, and you won’t have to lobby him one minute,” said Cecil Roberts, the president of the United Mine Workers of America, who gave an impassioned speech urging the crowd to vote for Mr. Lamb. “He’s for your pensions, he’s for your union, he’s for your health care. This is a ‘yes’ vote.”
post-gazette.com

I support their pensions, their healthcare, and their unions, I just don’t support their right to keep mining coal if it’s being replaced by renewables. I’ll even support paying for training for new careers.

re: #141 lawhawk

So, it’s been a week since the latest Nor’easter came through the NYC metro area. I did some driving out in Wayne NJ today, and it was eye-opening. There were stretches where there were massive tree branches down everywhere.

Just off Hamburg Turnpike, there was a road where there was an apartment complex - 2 story coop/condo style homes - attached.

There were tree branches down absolutely everywhere - branches into/on every single roof as far as you could see.

We’ve got another one coming tomorrow night, and they’re saying our part of the island could get 8 - 10” of snow.

I might end up getting to use the snow blower after all, but I’d rather not TBH.

Depends on the coal. Per a recent NPR discussion, we export $1B in metallurgical coal to Brazil, who turns it into steel, much for export to us. Guess who is going to get screwed in a tariff trade war.

My son was complaining that he wanted everything to useful, utilitarian, in his worldview. I bought him a copy of JS Mill’s essays ;) I don’t think he’s started reading them yet (I especially pointed out Utilitarianism) but I think the seed has been planted.

That’s cool. Other than the health issues, which is being mitigated by robotics, and environmental issues, non-fuel uses of coal are fine.

In the 50’s, it was done in fairly small ovens, reaching to the horizons in a grid pattern. Poured out coal-tar derivatives like the furnaces of Hell.
