Created by Soledad Galli Last updated 10/2019 English English [Auto-generated] What you’ll learn
Description
NEW! Updated in November 2019 for the latest software versions, including use of new tools and open-source packages, and additional feature engineering techniques.
———————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————————-
Welcome to Feature Engineering for Machine Learning, the most comprehensive course on feature engineering available online. In this course, you will learn how to engineer features and build more powerful machine learning models.
Who is this course for?
So, you’ve made your first steps into data science, you know the most commonly used prediction models, you perhaps even built a linear regression or a classification tree model. At this stage you’re probably starting to encounter some challenges – you realize that your data set is dirty, there are lots of values missing, some variables contain labels instead of numbers, others do not meet the assumptions of the models, and on top of everything you wonder whether this is the right way to code things up. And to make things more complicated, you can’t find many consolidated resources about feature engineering. Maybe even just blogs? So you may start to wonder: how are things really done in tech companies?
This course will help you! This is the most comprehensive online course in variable engineering. You will learn a huge variety of engineering techniques used worldwide in different organizations and in data science competitions, to clean and transform your data and variables.
What will you learn?
I have put together a fantastic collection of feature engineering techniques, based on scientific articles, white papers, data science competitions, and of course my own experience as a data scientist.
Specifically, you will learn:

Throughout the course, you are going to learn multiple techniques for each of the mentioned tasks, and you will learn to implement these techniques in an elegant, efficient, and professional manner, using Python, NumPy, Scikit-learn, pandas and a special open-source package that I created especially for this course: Feature- engine.
At the end of the course, you will be able to implement all your feature engineering steps in a single and elegant pipeline, which will allow you to put your predictive models into production with maximum efficiency.
Want to know more? Read on…
In this course, you will initially become acquainted with the most widely used techniques for variable engineering, followed by more advanced and tailored techniques, which capture information while encoding or transforming your variables. You will also find detailed explanations of the various techniques, their advantages, limitations and underlying assumptions and the best programming practices to implement them in Python.
This comprehensive feature engineering course includes over 100 lectures spanning about 10 hours of video, and ALL topics include hands-on Python code examples which you can use for reference and for practice, and re-use in your own projects.

2020.03.23 20:52 ToBeDeleted123456 Weird Antenna signal issue - Need suggestion

After trying various indoor (sticky flat panel) and outdoor antenna (ClearStream 2Max) options I settled into installing RCA Yagi Antenna and Onn Preamp in my attic last week (03/15). UHF Channels (NBC, Fox, PBS) works fine but my issue is with VHF channels (ABC and CBS).
VHF channels works fine during morning/early afternoon time window but starting late afternoon (3-4PM) it start getting pixelated and by primetime my TV shows no signal message for CBS and ABC. When I dig deeper into Rabbit Ears data (link below), came to know these are classified as 2-Edge compared to UHFs which is LOS. My house is in shadow of Black Mtn, where as broadcast towers are in Mt Soledad in San Diego
What can I do to fix this? Bigger antenna (already returned 2 so like to keep this one) or better pre-amp (if yes, which one). Pointers much appreciated. Thanks!!!
Channel Desired - ABC, CBS, FOX, NBC and PBS
Attic - Wood, roof - spanish tiles ; not metal enclosed one.
Used RCA app to point my antenna direction.

2020.03.09 14:56 Greyrust 1920 Names: A Retrospective (US Census)

Hello - it's time for another US Census analysis! You can see previous analyses here:
1880 1900
Info: This data is being pulled from a list of babies born that were named and given a Social Security Number in a given year. The census also only counts a name if it has an occurrence rate of at least 5. "Occurrence rate" refers to how many people were given that name in this year.
Today's year is 1920.

Overview

Totals

There were 5,767 names for baby girls and 4,991 names for baby boys.
There was a total of 2,257,432 babies on the list - an approximate 500% increase from 1900.

The Many

There were 196 names for baby girls with an occurrence rate of 1,000 or greater and 148 names for baby boys with an occurrence rate of 1,000 or greater.

The Few

There were 2,670 names for baby girls with an occurrence rate of 10 or fewer and 2,225 names for baby boys with an occurrence rate of 10 or fewer.

Top Names

These are the top 10 names for either gender along with their occurrence rate. Italics indicate names that were also on the top 10 list in 1900.
Female # Male #
Mary 70,982 John 56,913
Dorothy 36,643 William 50,149
Helen 35,097 Robert 48,676
Margaret 27,996 James 47,912
Ruth 26,102 Charles 28,308
Mildred 18,059 George 26,892
Virginia 17,314 Joseph 25,591
Elizabeth 15,910 Edward 20,095
Frances 15,883 Frank 16,430
Anna 14,581 Richard 15,010
A few names jumped in popularity since 1900. Back then, Mildred had 2,800 occurrences, Frances had 2,495, Dorothy had 2,491, and Virginia had 1,068.
Also in 1900, Richard had 1,141 occurrences.

Then & Now

Switcheroo

Some names had a dominant gender in the past, and have a different dominant gender now. Here are some names that "switched genders" from 1920 to 2018 (percentages are rounded).
Name 1920 2018
Addison 100% Male 2% Male
Loren 98% Male 42% Male
Sidney 97% Male 43% Male
Leslie 95% Male 6% Male
Tracy 73% Male 42% Male
Jean 97% Female 33% Female
Robbie 91% Female 29% Female
Alpha 89% Female 9% Female
Ollie 76% Female 33% Female
Jody 58% Female 28% Female

Conquest

Some names didn't "switch", but started somewhat gendered, and then evolved until they were completely dominated by said gender.
Name 1920 2018
Theo 51% Male 99% Male
Merle 67% Male 100% Male
Terry 72% Male 97% Male
Gail 51% Female 100% Female
Carmen 72% Female 98% Female
Connie 84% Female 100% Female

Just For Fun

Unusual Names

There were also some unusual/uncommon names in 1920. Here are some choice picks from me, with the name and the number of babies with said name:
Female # Male #
Girlie 18 Manly 22
Toy 17 Normal 8
Mayo 10 Boss 7
Verbal 9 Nacho 6
Wealthy 7 Bunny 5
Dick 7 Cluster 5
Ascencion 6 Flake 5
Palestine 6 President 5
Welcome 5 Square 5
Many 5 Wah 5

Neat Names

There were some names that I found interesting, cool, cute, or nice, but were rare in 1920 (and remain rare today). Here are my top picks:
Female # Male #
Marceline 47 Marcel 106
Soledad 44 Urban 88
Rochelle 41 Bluford 10
Hyacinth 29 Murdock 10
Vira 28 Ervine 9
Clover 22 Calloway 8
Melrose 21 Makoto 7
Echo 18 Reinhardt 7
Kansas 7 Vasco 7
Verdine 5 Hawthorne 6

Culture

We all know that culture can affect naming patterns; here are some examples of events and people that influenced names in and around the year 1920.

Misc.

The longest male name was "Christopher" at 11 characters.
The longest female name was "Maryelizabeth" at 13 characters.
The letters that the most names started with were M at 1,020 names, then A at 969 names, and then L at 951 names.
The letters that the fewest names started with were X at 2 names (Xavier and Xenia), then Q at 17 names, and then Y at 42 names.
Did You Know? In 1920, the price of a loaf of bread was 7 cents.

Earth vs. The Flying Saucers, 1956
https://archive.org/details/PlanetEarthKmpftGegenUFOs1956
Scientist Dr. Russell Marvin and his new bride Carol are driving to work when a flying saucer appears overhead. Without proof of the encounter, other than a tape recording of the ship's sound, Dr. Marvin is hesitant to notify his superiors. He is in charge of Project Skyhook, an American space program that has already launched 10 research satellites into orbit. General Hanley , Carol's father, informs Marvin that many of the satellites have since fallen back to Earth. Marvin admits that he has lost contact with all of them and privately suspects alien involvement. The Marvins then witness the 11th falling from the sky shortly after launch.
When a saucer lands at Skyhook the next day, a group of aliens in metallic suits exit, and the infantry guards open fire, resulting in the death of one alien, while others and the saucer are protected by a force field. The aliens proceed to kill everyone at the facility but the Marvins; General Hanley is captured and taken away in the saucer.

He comes to the realization, after he sees a six-sided hatchway close, that this isn't a meteorite but a large alien spaceship. The hatchway's noise starts a landslide that completely buries the craft. Putnam's story is later scoffed at by Sand Rock's sheriff and the local news media. . . .

2019.08.12 07:41 innnnmotion Reflections on 2 weeks in Tijuana (from someone who did not go for sex tourism)

I must admit that before arriving to Tijuana, I knew very little of the city. In part, this was intentional. I liked to travel to places with an almost blank slate, allowing whatever experiences happen to wash over me, building from nothing with as little preconceived notions of where the hell I might be as possible. When it came to Tijuana, I knew oh so very little. I knew it was a border town and I knew there was some sort of a wall. I also briefly lived in Mexico City and dated someone there who was from TJ—as I've found so many like to call it. When she told me this was her home, it was quickly followed by an almost literal bold-face asterisk: "It's not just what you hear in the news and it has so much more to offer." I admittedly hadn't heard the news, but I assumed this news was not the good kind of news. And it's true, the news is, well… often not good. USA Today recently named it the most dangerous city in the world and, just one weekend before my arrival, 31 people were killed within city limits. But whatever. I wasn't going to let the news stop me. Hell, I hadn't even read the news until well after into my arrival to even allow myself to be affected by it. All I knew was that I had just finished a stint exploring up the East Coast of the U.S. and down the West Coast, and it was very important for me to take a bus to the border and walk into Mexico. And that's just what I did.
 
HOW TO PRONOUNCE TIJUANA
Really quick just to get this out of the way, because I keep hearing my fellow gringos fucking this up too much to let it slide. If you're saying "tee-a-wa–na," you've been throwing in an extra syllable. Make it easier on yourself and say "tee-hooa-na." Or if that's too much, just say "TJ."
 
CROSSING THE BORDER
The walk into Mexico was… surprisingly uneventful. I'm not sure what I was expecting, but what I found were personality-devoid border security agents who simply asked how long I was going to be in Mexico ("I'd like the six month visa please"), would I be paying the fee in pesos or dollars (500 pesos), and not to lose the paper (like I did once before). "Great, enjoy. Bienvenidos." I walked onward and the sign above shortly after confirmed his greeting. I was on my way with Mexico to my left, leaving behind the USofA for the unforeseeable future.
 
LAS PLAYAS DE TIJUANA
I still had my Telcel sim card leftover from my CDMX days (which, for the record, works great in the states on the T-Mobile network at a fraction of the cost). While there are cheaper options, if you're looking to cover a lot of Mexican ground, I'd recommend this company as they reportedly have the best coverage. You can also use their app to manage your data usage and load top-ups. 5GB/month will set you back a mere ~13USD. Because of this, I was able to book an Uber directly from the border to Lifestyle Hostel, one of two that exists in Tijuana. It's strange to me that the city doesn't have more of a hostel culture considering it's entirely primed for it with its endless supply of nightlife partying, but I guess that's just not the reputation it has right now. Perhaps one day.
This particular hostel is one block off the beach and boardwalk in an area simply known as Playas de Tijuana. Lifestyle boasts high reviews and at $14 a night for a dorm bed (that's low-end here) with little competition and I can see why. It's a competently ran place situated above, get this, a jiu jitsu studio. The man who did my check-in offered complimentary classes (I think), to which I did not take him up on, but I appreciated nonetheless. Instead, I wanted to take a stroll of the area and my surroundings. I came to Tijuana for whatever it had to offer after all. I was there on a Wednesday night just before sundown strolling along the boardwalk heading towards la frontera, the infamous physical barrier between here and there. Mariachi men were playing the standards, everything from hot dogs to half-dozen shrimp on a stick could be purchased, and families were soaking in the last of the waves and rays. I found a place to sit for a while, just to revel in the sights, sounds, and smells as I felt absolutely giddy at the fact that I was back in Latinolandia once again. Once I finished basking in this delight, I headed towards the wall. You'll first see it off in the distance, a strange and not at all solid structure that flimsy just shoots off and comes to an abrupt stop in the ocean, almost as if the damn thing is afraid of water. It doesn't look at all effective or menacing, it's not even a wall as much as it's a series of inter-connecting slats. A fence, one might say. Maybe that's why they shout to build a wall. What I found incredibly interesting is how the two countries treat this structure. On the American side, it doesn't appear you can get anywhere within 30 meters of thing. Hell, there's actually another wall behind this wall and a road in between with very official looking vehicles occasionally on patrol. But over here? Over here it carries the sort of character you'd expect from Mexicans. Every section for a good couple of kilometers is covered in mural after mural, some illustrating the divide of nations with another reminding us that everyone is an immigrant. Some are deeply political and some are hopeful and speaks to the unity of humanity. Some just want to express their love for the person their dating. This structure that was meant to say, "get out and stay out," has been transformed into a place of unrestrained expression. Across the street sits a café named Felices días del amor y la soledad (Happy days of love and loneliness).
 
ZONA NORTE
While I enjoyed the evening at the beach, I am and will always be a city kid at heart, so the next morning I packed up my stuff, ate a street tamale, and took an Uber towards "the city." For reference, here's a map of the areas that most tourists will find themselves.
In the north right along the border you have the most infamous part of town: Zona Norte. While small, it's complete with the seediest sides of life. Sex workers on the streets, noticeable drug use and signs of addiction, and high-end sex clubs. This area is not for the faint of heart. I saw someone getting a blowjob in a parking lot, a lady with makeup running down her face while shooting up in the middle of the day, unofficial "police" chatting up the street-level sex workers, and… some great taco stands. Sex work is decriminalized in Mexico, meaning that in most areas, you don't need license to work in this industry and you won't find yourself in legal trouble for trying to solicit or procure it. In many respects, this is a wonderful thing. Those selling and buying can conduct business that will happen regardless without fearing for their legal well-being. I only wish that the area was safer for everyone involved. It's said that police have completely abandoned Zona Norte, leaving much of it up to self-governance. Enough gets said and written about here, particularly among horny U.S. tourists visiting the renowned Hong Kong Gentlemen's Club. I on the other hand did not partake in any of the trade. It's not out of some moral opposition, but generally… it's just not my thing.
I do want to talk about the bar Zacazonapan, or simply Zacaz as those here call it. Said to have been put on the map to the external non-TJ crowd by Manu Chao, Zacaz lies just on the border of—but still very much in—Zona Norte. To explain Zacaz, you have to understand marijuana in Tijuana. While literally just over the border in San Diego you can buy weed from dispensaries with a credit card, the attitude in Tijuana and much of Mexico is less than accepting. Much of the drug world, including yerba, is Narco controlled. For that reason alone, until this relationship becomes decoupled, the plant will always have a troubled reputation. Zacaz, on the other hand, is a green lover's haven. For whatever reason, much like all of Zona Norte, the police look away. You need to be over 18 and show an ID to get in, regardless of your age, but I assume this is more of a self-imposed restriction rather than any actual legal obligation. The bar resides below ground in a very dim and incredibly dive environment. They sell a vast selection of not one but two beers available only by the bottle and only by the liter. The first time I walked in, I saw nothing but a cloud of thick weed smoke, 4 person tables lining the outer perimeter, and a bong resting right there and center on the bar. Now I've been to my fair share of dives in my life, but I must say, this is a truly special place. You never know what you'll get. The way the seating works, you're almost always interacting with people you don't know. The patrons are rolling joints out on the tables, sipping their beers out of plastic cups, and dancing in the center of the bar on very sticky floors. You get all types, ages, and backgrounds here. The music will jump around like crazy from 80s synth pop, metal, to Latin ballads. People will dance sporadically, get into lengthy conversations, argue, and break out into fist-throwing fights. On one particular night, I witness a chubby man in his 50s dancing to Juan Gabriel while an older sex worker was being pushed out with a bar stool by the staff for trying to steal some drugs off another patron. Words will never fully capture the complete essence of what Zacaz has to offer. Much like the multifacetedness of humanity, Zacaz demands to be witnessed and accepted for everything it is.
 
EL CENTRO AND AV. REVOLUCIÓN
Literally across the street from Zona Norte is the main downtown and tourist strip named Avenida Revolución. Marking the start is Arco Monumental, acting as a gateway to what the city has to offer. On Revolución, you'll find an incredible array of dive bars dating back sometimes more than half a century. You'll find an ever-exploding craft beer scene, offering some of the finest in the field. On the food side, you can go high-end or eat just as deliciously on the streets. You can also get your fill of independent cinema. Here's a list of my standouts:
I could keep going. I really could. This street has so much to offer, all hours of the day, all days of the week. Honestly you can't go wrong just showing up and sometimes following the sounds to where ever they may lead. Music pours onto every nook.
I have a few other mentions of places that might fall in el centro territory or not as city and neighborhood boundaries always get a little fuzzy, but I can't go without at least mentioning them and the quality experiences they provided.
 
CECUT AND ZONA RIO
A little to the east of the party scene that is Av. Revolución, you'll find the Tijuana Cultural Center (CECUT). Encompassed within this orb of a standout architectural sight is a cultural hub for all. It has the only IMAX theater in town showing an array of films in a 360-degree field. Museo de las Californias can be found within, boasting both a permanent collection as well as rotating exhibits. When I was there, stills from the film Roma were on display. There's a tranquil garden, Jardin Caracol, that contains Mesoamerican sculptures, an array of unique plants from around the region, and a quiet escape from the city that surrounds it. CECUT also offers a nice outdoor area that provides an assortment of weekend activities, like a vegan food festival or an indigenous peoples' dance festival.
Cross the street and you'll find yourself in the popular Plaza Rio, an outdoor shopping mall that'll have all your chains, retail shops, and a large Cinepolis movie theater with the latest blockbusters shown in both Spanish and English.
 
ALBERCAS WATER PARK VERGEL
If you're here during the warmer months, do yourself a favor and make it out to this robust water park of high-intensity water slide attractions. Unlike the States, you won't find any price gouging here. Entrance tickets are 180MXN (~9USD) and the food and alcohol prices inside are the same you would pay outside. The music was all over the place and for a while was playing some real 80s bangers that just made the whole experience a treat. It's most known for the Slip N Fly, a slide that requires your to go down head first and launches your body 20 meters into the air before plummeting into the water however you find yourself landing. I did it only once and still felt bruised on my left thigh four days later. It's no joke and it's awesome. But come for the day, drink clamatos, hang out in the wave pool, and make some Mexican friends. I went on a Tuesday and stayed for the whole day. While the park was busy, I never had to wait more than a couple of minutes in line. They seem to have a nice system. You can also bring outside food and utilize one of their many BBQ grills.
 
HOW TO MEET PEOPLE AND FIND EVENTS
As a white guy with blue eyes and somewhat passible Spanish, I found it both easy and accessible to meet people and find events. As with most places in the world though, I recommend using the tools out there.
TJ has a decent Couchsurfing community. Even if you don't use it for lodging, if you travel and want to meet people, the Hangouts feature on the app is an invaluable resource for getting connected with the people who live there and are in the know. Within an hour of turning the app on and broadcasting to others that I wanted to hangout, I had a few people offering to show me around.
As far as finding events, my number one go-to almost anywhere in the world in major cities is thus: go to Facebook, click on events, click on discover, limit the search to the city and the dates you'll be there. Mark yourself as interested in events you may like and then just… show up! Especially while traveling in places where you might stand out, it's not uncommon that people will come up and talk to you. I didn't find this happened as much here as it did in, say Guatemala City, and perhaps that's because of the proximity to the U.S. border and the occasional saturation of gringos in these parts. Generally, though, these apps are tools to find things to do, meet people with common interests, and using that as a launching point to then get connected and in the social circles of those who live where you're traveling.
 
BRIEF CONCLUSION
Tijuana. You're an incredible place with a lot to offer. One of things I found so touching is just how many people either from here or who have chosen to relocate here have so much pride and passion for where this city is and where it's going. Yeah, it's rough around the edges, but that's part of the charm. That Norteña in CDMX all those months ago was right: it's not just what you hear in the news and it has so much more to offer. The Simpsons, in a rather tongue-in-cheek way, called Tijuana the happiest place on Earth. If you take Tijuana for what it is and all that it is, you just might find some truth in that.

One of things I found so touching is just how many people either from here or who have chosen to relocate here have so much pride and passion for where this city is and where it's going. Yeah, it's rough around the edges, but that's part of the charm. That Norteña in CDMX all those months ago was right: it's not just what you hear in the news and it has so much more to offer. The Simpsons, in a rather tongue-in-cheek way, called Tijuana the happiest place on Earth. If you take Tijuana for what it is and all that it is, you just might find some truth in that.

2019.04.08 12:29 NoMeVoyMeQuedo Por qué los barrios pobres no van a votar: la abstención en las zonas más excluidas duplica a la de las más ricas

El barrio sevillano de 'las 3.000 Viviendas', uno de los más empobrecidos de España, fue el que más se abstuvo en las elecciones generales de 2016. Los que más participaron fueron los vecinos del acomodado barrio del Pla del Remei, en Valencia "Es un pez que se muerde la cola: como no votan, los políticos no se interesan por ellos, ellos no se sienten escuchados y vuelven a abstenerse en las siguientes elecciones", explica el investigador Manuel Trujillo BUSCADOR Busca entre las 16 mayores ciudades españolas y comprueba cuál es la renta media del barrio y cuántos votantes se abstuvieron en 2016 Raúl Sánchez 07/04/2019 - 21:37h Compartir en Facebook Compartir en Twitter Norte y sur, este y oeste, centro y periferia o costa e interior pueden marcar las fronteras invisibles de una ciudad. Muchas veces, esos límites no solo señalan las desigualdades económicas sino también políticas. Vivir en un barrio rico o pobre influye de manera determinante en las probabilidades de que una persona acuda a votar a su colegio electoral o se quede en casa en unas elecciones generales.
Por ejemplo, una brecha de casi 90.000 euros de ingresos por hogar separa al barrio de 'las 3.000 Viviendas' en Sevilla, el segundo más empobrecido de España, y El Viso en Madrid, el más rico. La desigualdad económica también se convierte en desigualdad electoral: en el primero, el 55% de los residentes no acudieron a votar en las elecciones generales de 2016; en el segundo, el 18%.
¿Una casualidad? Los datos analizados por eldiario.es muestran que los barrios con menos renta se abstuvieron el doble en las elecciones generales de 2016 que las zonas más acomodadas en las 16 mayores ciudades españolas. Mientras que la abstención alcanzó el 42% en los barrios con una renta media por debajo de los 20.000 euros, solo el 20% de los residentes de las zonas con ingresos superiores a los 50.000 euros renunciaron a votar.
Este es el resultado del análisis de eldiario.es de los datos del proyecto estadístico Urban Audit, publicados por el Instituto Nacional de Estadística, y los resultados electorales de las elecciones generales del 26J. Ver metodología
"Esto no es nuevo, siempre ha habido agujeros negros electorales que han sido los barrios más pobres", explica Braulio Gómez, doctor en Ciencia Política de la Universidad de Deusto y autor de varios trabajos sobre la relación entre abstención y renta. "Si en tu casa no tienes la nevera en condiciones para mantener tu vida cotidiana, es más difícil que tengas ese tiempo para buscar información política", comenta Gómez.
La tendencia se repite en los 16 municipios más poblados de España: cuanto más pobre es el barrio, más se abstuvieron sus residentes en las elecciones generales de 2016. Sin embargo, este fenómeno se agrava en las ciudades con mayor brecha entre barrios humildes y zonas acomodadas. Es decir, áreas metropolitanas más desiguales.
Pero, ¿por qué los residentes de barrios como El Raval (Barcelona), San Cristóbal (Madrid), Los Pajaritos (Sevilla) o Palma-Palmilla (Málaga) acuden menos a votar? Los expertos lo achacan a un alejamiento total de la política y una sensación de exclusión por su situación económica.
"Es un tipo de cultura que es lejana a ellos, que no les representa no participan porque no es su juego político", argumenta Miguel Alhambra, sociólogo de la Universidad Complutense de Madrid y autor de un estudio académico sobre desigualdad social y abstención electoral en Madrid y Barcelona. "Es un efecto de la propia desigualdad: si para tener voz y voto tienes que tener capital cultural, al final te callas", comenta.
'Las 3.000 Viviendas' y la zona de Juan XXIII en Alicante son los barrios que más se callaron en las elecciones del 26J. Alrededor de la mitad de los residentes decidieron no ejercer su derecho al voto en 2016. "Aunque realmente digamos que no hace falta gran cosa (para votar), coger tu DNI y acercarte al colegio electoral, algo que nos parece sencillo, no lo es para muchas personas", explica la doctora en psicología social Cristina Cuenca.
Para Cuenca, es complicado decir "que vaya a votar" a una persona que esté en "una situación de desempleo cronificado, una familia afectada porque el padre o la madre tenga un problema de adicción o una persona sin hogar".
Pero, ¿cómo y a qué partidos votan los barrios de renta más bajas y mayores problemas derivados de esta desigualdad? Para comprobarlo, analizamos los datos de 509 barrios de las mayores ciudades españolas.

Los investigadores alertan de las consecuencias políticas de la segregación entre barrios humildes de baja participación y zonas acomodadas con alta participación. "Es un pez que se muerde la cola: como no votan, los políticos no se interesan por ellos, ellos no se sienten escuchados y vuelven a abstenerse en las siguientes elecciones", argumenta Manuel Trujillo, investigador del Instituto de Estudios Sociales del CSIC.
Precisamente, el estudio Urnas Vacías en los suburbios de las ciudades, realizado por Trujillo y Braulio Gómez para el Observatorio Social de La Caixa, identificó una correlación "altísima" entre vivir en una zona caracterizada por la carencia de todo tipo de recursos y la abstención electoral en las municipales de 2015.
"A nivel electoral, cuando se agudiza este fenómeno, la izquierda pierde muchísimos votos", afirma Trujillo, que pone como ejemplo las pasadas elecciones autonómicas en Andalucía. Tal y como publicó eldiario.es, la abstención se disparó el 2D en los barrios más pobres de Sevilla, Málaga y Córdoba, donde Podemos y sobre todo el PSOE tenían más poder electoral.
Los datos de las generales del 26J, en 2016, también señalan esta tendencia: los partidos de izquierda son mucho más fuertes en los suburbios de las grandes ciudades y las candidaturas de derecha consiguen más votos en las zonas más ricas. Un voto de clase que se agudiza en los extremos: la izquierda promedia el 67% de las papeletas en los barrios que ingresan menos de 20.000 euros y la derecha se lleva el 74% de los sufragios en las zonas con una renta media superior a los 50.000 euros por hogar.
Manuel Buñuel, politólogo e investigador de la relación entre abstención y renta en la ciudad de Sevilla, asegura que existe una sensación en las zonas más marginadas de que la clase política solo va a esos barrios durante la campaña electoral y que después están "cuatro años sin aparecer". "Se ha luchado tanto tiempo para que el voto se ampliara a más capas de la población y los que más lucharon por ampliarlo son los que más se abstienen actualmente", reflexiona Buñuel.
Un fenómeno que apenas ha variado con el surgimiento de formaciones políticas como Podemos o Ciudadanos, según concluye el estudio Urnas Vacías. "Esto genera una concentración de poder político: si los ricos siempre votan, tendrán más poder en sus manos para que se tengan en cuenta sus intereses", explica el investigador Braulio Gómez.
La renta media de los diez barrios que más se abstuvieron en las generales de 2016 era de 19.000 euros por hogar. Entre los diez que más participaron, la cifra sube hasta los 68.000. Para Manuel Trujillo, "esto se acaba convirtiendo en un déficit democrático porque hay cierta población que no se siente representada y que no acaba siendo escuchada".
Más de una treintena de barrios de las grandes áreas urbanas registraron porcentajes de abstención por encima del 40% de los residentes en 2016. Si resides en alguna de las 16 mayores ciudades españolas, puedes buscar tu barrio.

Tres factores unen a los barrios de El Raval, El Besòs, el Maresme y Nou Barris. Son los barrios que más se abstienen, más empobrecidos y con mayor población extranjera de Barcelona. Frente a ellos, el distrito de Sarrià-Sant Gervasi agrupa las zonas de mayor renta, menor abstención y más población nativa.
Una segregación económica, racial y social que divide a Barcelona entre la ciudad de Convergencia y PP frente a la de En Comú y el PSOE.

  1. Las Mil Quinientas viviendas de Gijón
En 1953, el Instituto Nacional de la Vivienda recibe el encargo de realizar un proyecto para alojar a los obreros que procedían del ámbito rural de Gijón en el Pumarín. Así es como se desarrollaron las Mil Quinientas viviendas que transformaron el barrio en una zona obrera. Todavía hoy, el Pumarín es la segunda zona más pobre de Gijón (23.591€) y en la que más se abstuvieron sus votantes (33,7%).
La zona residencial de urbanizaciones de Las Mestas es la más rica y también la que más participación registró en las elecciones del 26J.

  1. Vivir al lado del Guggenheim en Bilbao
Más de 20.000 euros conforman la brecha entre Abando, el distrito más rico y que más participa de la ciudad de Bilbao, y el resto de zonas de la ciudad. "En Bilbao hay una alta desigualdad pero no llega a los niveles que se llegan en Sevilla, Málaga o Badajoz aunque dentro de Euskadi sí que llama la atención", afirma Braulio Gómez, doctor en Ciencia Política de la Universidad de Deusto.
La desigualdad de Bilbao se manifiesta entre los que viven al lado del Guggenheim, que apenas se abstienen y votan principalmente a PP y PNV, y la zona sur de Errekalde, la más pobre donde Unidos Podemos fue el más votado en 2016.

  1. Urnas vacías en 'las 3.000 Viviendas'
La abstención consiguió la mayoría absoluta en 'las 3.000 Viviendas' de Sevilla en las elecciones generales de 2016. El 55% de los votantes decidió abstenerse en un barrio en el que PSOE y UP se llevan el casi el 80% de los votos. Frente a ellos, menos del 20% de los votantes se abstuvieron en el barrio más rico de Sevilla, Santa Clara, donde PP y Cs son opciones mayoritarias.
"Si lo que se lleva al debate es lo que opina un votante de los Remedios o de Triana, no se van a tener en cuenta los problemas de las 3.000 Viviendas", afirma el politólogo Manuel Buñuel.

La brecha económica entre el barrio que más se abstuvo en las elecciones de 2016, las barriadas de la Vega de San José, y el que más participó, la céntrica zona de Arenales-Lugo, es de casi 20.000 euros por hogar. Una diferencia que señala la desigualdad entre el centro histórico construido alrededor del Puerto de Las Palmas y las barriadas periféricas del sur, asentadas en pendiente sobre la ladera de la montaña.

  1. Madrid, una brecha de norte a sur
La capital madrileña presenta los mayores índices de desigualdad de las grandes ciudades españolas, una brecha que se dibuja de sur a norte. Los barrios más pobres del sur, como San Cristóbal (Villaverde) o San Diego (Puente de Vallecas), se abstienen casi el triple que las lujosas zonas más ricas del norte como El Viso (Chamartín) o Piovera (Hortaleza).
Un mapa que dibuja los feudos del PP que siempre votan en las generales frente a los dominios abstencionistas de Unidos Podemos y el PSOE.

  1. Centro frente a periferia en Valencia
Los residentes del lujoso barrio de El Pla del Remei, en el centro de Valencia, fueron los más entusiastas de las elecciones del 26J. Con solo un 14% de abstención, es el barrio que más participó de las grandes ciudades españolas. Casualmente, es el más rico de la capital y la zona en la que el PP consiguió más porcentaje de voto (61%).
Los mayores índices de abstención se concentran en los barrios pobres de las zonas periféricas como En Corts, El Grau o Tres Forques - La Fontsanta.

  1. El sur obrero se abstiene en Córdoba
Más de la mitad del suelo en el barrio de El Naranjo-Brillante, el más rico de Córdoba, está destinado a urbanizaciones, chalets y viviendas unifamiliares. En el Sector Sur, el más pobre de la capital de provincia, las zonas industriales y comerciales acaparan la mitad del suelo, según los datos del INE.
Casi 20 puntos separan los niveles de abstención de ambos barrios en las generales de 2016.

  1. La frontera invisible de Zaragoza
Apenas 3 kilómetros separan las urbanizaciones con piscina de Casablanca, en Zaragoza, con el barrio obrero de Delicias. Aunque no tienen una frontera física, sí existe una simbólica que los separa: los hogares de Casablanca ingresan 30.000 euros más y se abstienen casi la mitad que sus vecinos de Delicias.
Una brecha que se traslada a la perspectiva de voto de los principales partidos. PP y Ciudadanos son mayoría en Casablanca, el barrio más rico de la capital aragonesa, y PSOE y Unidos Podemos son primera fuerza en el más pobre, Delicias.

  1. Astilleros frente a centro histórico en Vigo
El barrio de Teis en Vigo, el más pobre de la ciudad gallega, fue el que registró el mayor porcentaje de abstención (32%) el 26J. Los principales astilleros de la ciudad y gran parte del puerto comercial señalan un barrio de marcado perfil obrero e industrial donde la candidatura de En Marea fue primera fuerza.
Una zona que se contrapone al centro histórico de Vigo, el barrio más rico de la ciudad gallega, el que más participó (un 26%). El PP fue el partido más votado.

Metodología
Para esta información, se han cruzado los datos por secciones censales de las elecciones generales de 2016 con los de renta media por hogar de la operación estadística de Indicadores Urbanos Urban Audit referentes al año 2016, que divide las ciudades en áreas suburbanas (SCD). Estas separaciones no siempre coinciden con divisiones administrativas de distritos o barrios. Solo se han incluido las 16 ciudades más pobladas de España ya que son los únicos municipios que tienen datos de renta desglosados por barrio.
En cada área suburbana, se ha calculado el porcentaje de votos de cada candidatura y el nivel de abstención en las elecciones del 26J a partir de las secciones censales que la componen. Se han descartado los datos de 9 secciones censales de las divisiones realizadas por Urban Audit no existían en las elecciones generales de 2016.
Se han identificado a PSOE, Unidos Podemos y sus confluencias, ERC, Bildu, PACMA y BNG como partidos de izquierda y a PP, Ciudadanos, CDC, PNV, CC, UPyD y Vox como partidos de derecha.

2017.12.15 15:03 mgbjay AURAS

AURAS
The dark blue ink stamped my fingerprint stained white timecard at 2230 hours exactly. I headed for the locker room and spun the dial of the aged Master combination lock that secured my twelve by fourteen by twenty-four-inch World War II vintage locker, theoretically preventing access on a good day to all but six or seven other people of my personal belongings while I was on duty.
Day to day, those belongings consisted of my lunch; usually three peanut butter, salami, tomato and mustard sandwiches, a zip-lock baggie of six Lorna Doones, a quart of milk and three bottles of orange Gatorade, all tucked safely inside a black nylon off-brand backpack I got on sale for twenty-one ninety-five during a Blue-Light-Special at KMart last October, which, if it lasts through the end of next week will have made it to the end of my Department of Corrections six-month probation.  
Woodford Detention Center, while recently re-landscaped thanks to a property tax levy passed in November, is as bleak and foreboding inside as a MAX-SEC prison might be imagined. Most of the interior of cell-block R is concrete gray. The furniture in and around the control rooms came in one of two designer-free colors: standard military olive drab, and Samsonite beige. The doors to the inmate quarters are flat-black as are all door and window frames, tier-railings and ventilation ductwork. The only colors in the cell-block are the round blue-gray steel tables bolted securely to the floors in the community areas where checkerboards are engraved and epoxied into place with their traditional red and black squares and a thin gold border on the outside edge. The intentionally insipid visual properties of the block were offset only by the brightness of the recently upgraded LED lighting system, thanks to the same gift-horse as the landscaping. While otherwise as boring as hell, we could see everything that was going on.
Well, almost everything.
Every third Thursday of the month, I reported to the Sally-Port where I manned the intake desk and oversaw the transfer of prisoners both in to, and out of Woodford. The best part of Sally-Port duty was also the worst part: the paperwork. The process of transferring inmates was exhaustive and time consuming. Each incoming prisoner wristband had to be removed and replaced. Once completed, they became inmates. Each inmate had to have his wristband photo and thumbprint image matched to the image on file in the CLINCHER Inmate Identification system. Each inmate transfer then required a FBOP-A0399 form completed and signed by the OOD. The three-ninety nines are short, critical and detailed forms. For the past two months, each three-ninety-nine had to be completed on a manual typewriter due to a persistent glitch in the computer system, disallowing that part of the data entry to be properly recorded.
This made for a very busy evening and the shift passed quickly.  
At 0248 hours, a call was patched through to the phone at my desk. It was the pilot of the JPATS flight from Soledad reporting their aircraft, and my prisoner were stuck on the tarmac and running about half an hour behind schedule. I reported this to the OOD and requested a few minutes to slip to the break-room and hit the vending machine for a cup of coffee.  
Returning to my desk, I was greeted by Stoltz and Cotnick, two detectives I knew from 1PP. They had a federal guest from Rikers who was headed to FCC Pollock to await trial on charges of trafficking in young women and drugs. I began the paperwork and called the desk sergeant:
“Frank, yeah, it’s Dawson. Listen, I’m gonna’ need two escorts for inmate Jekubiaz. He’s on hold for a medical-eval scheduled for tomorrow night prior to his transfer to Louisiana.”
“I’ll have’em there in twenty minutes.” Ortiz barked. “Anything else?”
“Copy that, Sarge. Naw, that’s it. Thanks.”
I put down the phone and told inmate Jekubiaz to stand and turn to his right, so I could scan and replace his wristband. Jekubiaz moved slower than Stoltz thought was indicated by my request, and grabbed him just above his left elbow, yanked him up from his seat, then spun him hard to his right.
“Next time when the man asks you to get up and turn, …” Stoltz didn’t need to finish the sentence.
Jekubiaz, now only ten inches or so from my face, looked into my eyes and smiled as I reached for his left wrist and scanned the barcode ID embedded in the wristband.
That brief physical contact I established with Jekubiaz while scanning his wrist ID, provided me all the necessary details a jury would need to convict him of everything he was suspected of. His dark-brown aura, tinged with black revealed to me his core: he was a man filled with deceit, selfishness, and a bad quick temper. More than a few of the traits innate to a person accused of such crimes. This gift, as my mother described my ability to see these aura’s, often revealed information I never wanted to know. But I’ve learned to live with it, and could frequently ignore it.
But not always.
Jekubiaz’s escorts appeared at my window into the hallway of the Sally-Port. I hit the buzzer and they entered pushing an Emergency Restraint Chair. They immediately took custody from Stoltz and Cotnick, and pushed Jekubiaz into the chair, securing quickly his head, wrists and ankles. I handed them the paperwork Sergeant Ortiz would need.
“Thanks guys. Have a nice trip Mr. Jekubiaz. Hope you enjoy the weather in Louisiana” I said, finally returning his smile.
I turned to shake hands with Cotnick, and nodded goodbye to Stoltz, already standing at the door.
“Stay safe and say hello to Drazdick when you see him.”
“And hey, remind him of the corned beef from Nick’s he still owes me” I griped, knowing the only way that I’d ever really get that sandwich would be to drive across town and buy it myself.  
I glanced at the clock. It was 0328 hours and I wondered where my JPAT prisoner was. Just as I dropped my ass into the chair behind my desk, the yellow alert beacon in concert with the claxon brought my attention to the fact that the inmate from Soledad was en route from the front gate. Officer’s Schmidt, Osgood and Kretchmeier focused their attention on the arriving prisoner. As soon as the van stopped between the wide yellow painted lines on the concrete floor of the Sally-Port, three armed guards exited the van and ran to the passenger side. The doors opened from the inside, and the ramp lowered. Two additional guards pushed the gurney out of the van and down the ramp. The prisoner, was strapped to the gurney, head hands waist and feet with two-inch-wide yellow nylon webbing, secured with stainless pinned buckles. I’d not been, nor was anyone else on my end given any information regarding this prisoner’s background prior to his arrival.
Schmidt and Osgood reported the Sally-Port was secure. Kretchmeier and I rolled up the armored security door and the armed guards rolled in the prisoner.  
FBI Special Agent Kirkpatrick introduced himself and handed me a black briefcase. From his inside coat pocket, he brought out a key and opened the case. He handed me one of two envelopes contained inside. I opened the envelope and removed the paperwork. The prisoner on the gurney was known as John Alexander Orminster. I could not imagine the crimes this man committed to demand such precautionary levels of security. The paperwork stated his age at seventy-three years four months. He looked every bit of it. I completed the paperwork as it was handed to me and prepared a new CLINCHER ID for former prisoner now inmate Orminster, and returned the resealed envelope to Agent Kirkpatrick.
I stepped towards the gurney with my scanner and the wristband. It became obvious that the prisoners left arm required release from the gurney restraint so that I could properly attach it. I grasped the prisoners forearm and was immediately overcome, as if by an abyss. I remained aware of what I was doing and the people around me, though profoundly aware of a building darkness that saturated my mind, the Sally-Port and everyone in it.
I glanced at Special Agent Kirkpatrick, and then the sidearm holstered at his waist. Resisting with all my effort the incredible urge to reach for it, I instead snapped the CLINCHER ID to Orminster’s wrist, grabbed the scanner and copied the data into the system. The scanner beeped, and completed its process, sending the information to the printer which I could hear turning the data into a hard copy for agent Kirkpatrick, and our records. Next, I had to type the FBOP-A0399 form and take it to the OOD for his signature. Again, my attention focused on the Glock on Kirkpatrick’s waist as the darkness became thicker, thinning my desire to resist. When I looked up, I was emotionally seized by the malignant penetrating eyes of prisoner Orminster. His willful gaze proffered me a dare, in the form of a terse snarl from his gaunt, thin-lipped face.
Asserting my will, I restrapped the prisoner’s wrist to the gurney and forced myself to the desk to complete the A0399, after which I stood and removed the form from the typewriter. I walked around my desk, and passed directly behind Agent Kirkpatrick, with the intention of having the OOD sign it, as required.
The darkness however, sucked my intention dry. I threw the scanner against the wall, and distracted Agent Kirkpatrick just enough to provide me with momentary access to his Glock, which I unhesitatingly grabbed, chambered, and kneecapped him with from behind. I then turned and placed two rounds directly into the forehead of that evil rat-bastard, inmate Orminster.
In the same instant, my right shoulder exploded in pain as I was thrown backwards hard against the wall from the impact of an opposing Glock round. A wet red smear followed me to the floor, where I traded the darkness for unconsciousness.  
“And that’s how it happened in the wee hours of 20 April 2017” I painfully recounted from my bed in the Bellvue prison ward.
“Eight days short of making my probation. Ain’t that a bitch” I winced. Stoltz and Cotnick listened to all of it, looked at me, and then each other shaking their heads.
A ringing phone broke the uneasy silence. Cotnick reached into his coat and retrieved his cell; “Cotnick” he huffed.
“Got it, we’re on our way.” He looked at Stoltz. “We got a body.”
Cotnick flicked his head and right thumb at Stoltz towards the door. They nodded to the patrolman as they passed.
“Hey” I groaned. They stopped just outside the door, and gave me a quarter turn of their heads. “remind Drazdick he still owes me a corned beef from Nick’s.”

2017.05.21 17:02 EnciclopedistadeTlon Domingo de lectura 46: Murakami, Wikipedia, Snorri Sturluson, Borges y B. Willingham

Cada domingo elegimos al azar cinco textos del documento online en el que cargo las sugerencias de todos.
 
 
Los textos de este domingo (tirada)
 
1) Ficción breve: “El espejo” de Haruki Murakami (PDF), sugerido por justroku.
Haruki Murakami (1949) es un escritor y traductor japonés, autor de novelas y relatos. Es el escritor japonés más popular en Occidente, y la influencia de la literatura y la música occidental es notable en él. Aunque parte de la crítica de su país califica su obra de literatura pop, es reconocido a nivel internacional y ha ganado numerosos premios. Se lo suele asociar con el surrealismo y el posmodernismo.
 
2) No ficción breve: Artículo “Aspecto físico y personalidad de Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart” de Wikipedia, sugerido por sebs24.
Wikipedia (2001) es una enciclopedia libre, políglota y editada colaborativamente. Es administrada por la Fundación Wikimedia, una organización sin ánimo de lucro cuya financiación está basada en donaciones.
 
3) Microrrelato: “La promesa del rey” de Snorri Sturluson, sugerido por Aleblanco1987.
Snorri Sturluson (1179-1241) fue un escaldo (poeta guerrero vikingo), historiador, jurista y escritor islandés. En dos ocasiones fue elegido letrado del Alþing (Parlamento islandés). Es el autor de la Edda prosaica o Edda menor, que incluye narraciones de mitología nórdica y poesía. También es el autor de la Heimskringla, una historia de los reyes noruegos que comienza con un tono legendario en la Saga de los Ynglings y alcanza la primera parte del medioevo de la historia de Escandinavia.
 
La promesa del rey
 
Tostig, hermano del rey sajón de Inglaterra, Harold Hijo de Godwin, codiciaba el poder y se alió con Harald Hardrada, rey de Noruega. (Este había militado en Constantinopla y en África; su estandarte se llamaba Landsda, Desolador de Tierras; también fue poeta famoso). Con un ejército noruego desembarcaron en la costa oriental y rindieron el castillo de Jorvik (York). Al sur de Jorvik los enfrentó el ejército sajón. Veinte jinetes se allegaron a las filas del invasor; los hombres, y también los caballos, estaban revestidos de hierro. Uno de los jinetes gritó:
—¿Está aquí el conde Tostig?
—No niego estar aquí —dijo el conde.
—Si verdaderamente eres Tostig —dijo el jinete— vengo a decirte que tu hermano te ofrece su perdón, su amistad y la tercera parte del reino.
—Si acepto —dijo Tostig— ¿qué dará el rey a Harald Hardrada?
—No se ha olvidado de él —contestó el jinete—. Le dará seis pies de tierra inglesa y, ya que es tan alto, uno más.
—Entonces —dijo Tostig— dile a tu rey que pelearemos hasta morir.
Los jinetes volvieron. Harald Hardrada preguntó, pensativo:
—¿Quién era ese caballero que habló tan bien?
El conde respondió:
—Era Harold Hijo de Godwin.
Antes que declinara el sol de ese día, el ejército noruego fue derrotado. Harald Hardrada pereció en la batalla y también el conde.
Del capítulo XCI del décimo libro de la Heimskringla.
 
4) Poesía: “1964” de Jorge Luis Borges, sugerida por EduBA.
Jorge Luis Borges (1899-1986) fue un escritor y traductor argentino, autor de cuentos, ensayos breves y poemas, y una destacada figura literaria del siglo XX. En sus textos, que muchas veces trascienden géneros y engañan al lector con su juego entre lo ficticio y lo real, se aúnan la filosofía, la mitología, la historia, lo onírico, la religión, el lenguaje y la intertextualidad.
 
1964
 
I
 
Ya no es mágico el mundo. Te han dejado.
Ya no compartirás la clara luna
ni los lentos jardines. Ya no hay una
luna que no sea espejo del pasado,
 
cristal de soledad, sol de agonías.
Adiós las mutuas manos y las sienes
que acercaba el amor. Hoy sólo tienes
la fiel memoria y los desiertos días.
 
Nadie pierde (repites vanamente)
sino lo que no tiene y no ha tenido
nunca, pero no basta ser valiente
 
para aprender el arte del olvido.
Un símbolo, una rosa, te desgarra
y te puede matar una guitarra.
 
II
 
Ya no seré feliz. Tal vez no importa.
Hay tantas otras cosas en el mundo;
un instante cualquiera es más profundo
y diverso que el mar. La vida es corta
 
y aunque las horas son tan largas, una
oscura maravilla nos acecha,
la muerte, ese otro mar, esa otra flecha
que nos libra del sol y de la luna
 
y del amor. La dicha que me diste
y me quitaste debe ser borrada;
lo que era todo tiene que ser nada.
 
Sólo que me queda el goce de estar triste,
esa vana costumbre que me inclina
al Sur, a cierta puerta, a cierta esquina.
   
5) Cómic: Fables #1 de Bill Willingham, Lan Medina, Mark Buckingham Steve Leialoha, Craig Hamilton y Todd Klein (versión en inglés), sugerido por Fran.
Bill Willingham (1956) es un escritor y artista de cómics estadounidense, conocido por su trabajo en los cómics Elementals y Fables. Ha escrito e ilustrado para juegos de rol y para DC, así como algunas novelas de fantasía y aventuras. Se describe a sí mismo como "rabiosamente pro-Israel" y afirma que Fables desde un comienzo pretendió ser una metáfora del conflicto israelí-palestino.

2017.04.07 00:10 morbo2000 Pieces of Paradise

La'aloa beach. White sand, a tropical sea, perfect weather. He knows a lot of the people on the beach. They mingle with faces he doesn't know. But at least everyone's local. No damn tourists. Such a beautiful day, he thinks.
And he's been waiting.
No idea how long. Like time is stuck. Sometimes his watch beeps. But it's broken. When he looks at it he can't tell what time it. When it stops, a glow of approaching euphoria slips over him. His body sags, warm and content. So sleepy. He closes his eyes and can hear the soft hiss of waves kissing the beach. Trade winds rustle through palm trees above.
"Hey."
He looks out the window and sees her. Zoe. His daughter. His life. A sweet relief like washes through him. Tears come to his eyes but he blinks them away and gives her the same cocky smile she grew up with.
"Hey," he nods. "Girl, what took you so long?"
"Me?" she asks innocently. Same laughing eyes she had as a baby. Dark brown, full of sunlight and mischief. "Dad, I've been waiting for you."
"Well hell girl, get in," he says. "Been too long."
Zoe shakes her head. She steps back and smiles. A sad smile?
"No Dad. You need to come out to me."
Sol realizes he's still in his truck. Without a second thought, he opens the door.
"Ok girl," he shrugs. "But I still want to go surfing with you. You still remember how to surf, right?"
"I never forgot any of it, dad," she says.
He steps out and straight into his daughter's arms. The sun is so bright. And Zoe is little again. Her face is buried in his stomach. He feels the warmth of tears as she hugs him fiercely.
"Hey," he says softly, "everything's ok."
He smiles and closes his eyes.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ In the dripping, morning gloom of a cloudforest, a digital watch beeped. When he killed the alarm, the ringing songs of crickets filled the air. Piercing notes from coqui frogs piped in. In the trees, roosting myna birds chirped and whistled. Down the mountain, a rooster began to crow.
Sol stared dully at the tent fabric. It's still dark in the outside. Still cold. With a groan, he crawled out of his sleeping bag and wrapped himself in grandma's quilt. Still smelled like her cheap cigars. Crazy old Molokai woman. Sol unzipped the tent, stretched and looked at the camper. As usual, she's already up. He can smell fresh coffee, toast and her shampoo. Love. He opened the door. She looked up from her phone and smiled.
"Hey."
"Hey," he nodded back.
She returned to her phone, laughed and tapped the screen. Sol sat down. Music from the mainland played from wireless speakers. He leaned back and looked at Zoe. Their haole genes are strong. Like the music, her style is from 2500 miles away. Forever dressed in black, Sol knew she got picked on. But nothing phased this kid. Always finished what she started. Always top of her class. Hyper competitive. Sometimes Sol sees his brother's intense glare in her eyes.
Danny. Last time he saw his brother was when he first met Zoe. He was putting his surfboard into his truck when a convertible rental car pulled up and honked. He looked over and saw a baby standing up in the passenger seat.
"Soledad Tomo Sakai!"
Sol looked at the driver and grinned. He knew his brother had a kid but Danny lived in Oahu. Kid had no mom. She went back to the mainland. His brother didn't know where. He's not even sure about her name. She called herself Crystal but Danny thought that's just her stripping name. Or maybe because she liked meth. Just another crazy haole from the mainland.
Danny yanked a beer can from a six pack stringer between his legs and tossed one to Sol. Then he opened the passenger door. The baby peeked out. Uncombed hair, dirty face and filth stains on her clothes. Grubby. Like no one gave a shit. But neither did Sol who laughed when his brother asked him.
"Me?" Sol asked. "Wat? You crazy, brah?"
The baby scooted out the door, grabbed the seatbelt and carefully lowered herself to the ground. Then she stood up, casually looked around and walked away.
"Call a hospital or a cop or something," said Sol. "Not me, brah. No way."
"No one else I can trust Sol," said Danny.
True. Their parents were dead. Grandma's dead. They knew the names of a few blood relatives on the mainland, but never met them.
"Yeah?"
For a moment, his brother looked pensive. But then his usual asshole grin popped back up.
"Yeah, brah. Zoe's smart. Potty trained herself! No need no teacher. She just needs love. Like mom and dad kine love"
Sol looked at his brother. Fucking Danny. Moves to Honolulu, bangs some crazy stripper and comes home with a kid. And Danny was serious. His older brother always did what he wanted and left others to deal with the mess.
"Where you going?" asked Sol.
"Away," shrugged Danny. "Sol, just give Zoe a chance. She's good. Special. You'll see."
Sol nodded. He looked over at the baby. Now she was on the beach. She tripped but caught a papaya tree before doing a header into the lava rocks. He looked back at Danny.
"You ever coming back?"
"C'mon," smiled Danny. They watched the baby squeal and point at a sea turtle that surfaced for air. Danny leaned back in his seat and pointed his beer at the beach. "Who'd give up that?"
But that was exactly what Danny gave up when he put the bullet in his brain.
Zoe was his kid. No more dad. Never knew mom. Man, what a couple of dumb fucks, think Sol for the millionth time.
"Oh, hey," said Zoe waving her phone. "I need your card."
Sol sighed. Damn thing costs $70 bucks a month. Connects Zoe to the world. Not sure if that's good, but she says it is. And it does have good surf reports.
"Mm," he nodded digging out his wallet. "What's the surf report?"
"Northswell. 3-5 feet. But forget Pines" she said squinting at the swell map. "More west. Try Lymans or Kahalu'u."
He frowned. Not much Zoe does bothered him. But her squint bothered him.
"Eh! Where da glasses?" he demanded.
"Do you mean," asked Zoe slowly as if addressing an imbecile, "where are my glasses?"
He rolled his eyes. Zoe speaks the same way his mom from San Diego spoke to him and Danny when they were her age.
"Yes. My apologies," he fake smiles. "But you appear to be neglecting the use of your corrective lenses. And as you may recall, Dr. Wu was most insistent that you wear them when looking at your phone."
Zoe laughed and slapped the table. "Brah! You talk li one dumb fuckin' haole!"
"Just wear the glasses, Zoe. Damn things cost a fortune."
"Yeah, yeah" she said digging them out of her backpack. "And father, it is good we can converse like this."
He looked up, suspiciously. "Why?"
"CPS interview next week."
Anger and misery flash like a storm over the sea. Sol closed his eyes. Goddamn Child Protective Services again. He looked at Zoe.
"Already?"
"Yeah," said Zoe. "Got the letter."
He looked at the folded, piece of paper. An innocuous looking thing. But it's a knife. A knife that cuts things apart. He rubbed his eyes and looked at his watch. They have to leave in six minutes to beat school traffic. But his mind is here. Now. No decent clothes for the interview. No steady job. No shoes, no socks. No birth certificate. All he had was this perfect kid.
Zoe put on her glasses and slid away the phone. She crossed her arms and stared.
"Should I be worried?"
"Nah" he smiled.
This happened every few years. His surfer buddy was a lawyer. Their guardian angel. But the kid needed more. So they came up with an escape plan. It soothed Zoe's nightmares when she was little.
"Ok," Zoe frowned. "But remember what we said, yeah?"
"I remember," nodded Sol. "If anything happens-"
"-just run away. We'll meet at La'aloa," they finished together.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~ She looks at his urn. She can tell it's carved from an 'ohia tree because the artist left a band of natural bark. Leis woven from flowers, orchids and maile vines are draped over it. Floral scents from the jungle mix with the tang of the sea. Kahalu'u beach. Water so clear, she sees a school of yellow fish from her chair in the pavilion. Tourists in snorkeling masks explore a calm reef while surfers ride the waves outside. An auntie who's name she has forgotten finishes her speech and shouts something in Hawaiian. Enthusiastic clapping, hooting and hollering erupts from the audience.
And now it is her turn.
Stuck in a dream, she walks up to the podium. Fear of speaking in front of crowds, fear of relatives she left behind, fear of fucking up trembles through each step. But as she gets closer, a wave of calmness spreads over her. Soothing love, aloha. It holds her gently, like a child. She begins to speak.
"Grandpa. I owe you everything. For my life in Hawaii after mom died. For the life I have today with my children."
After those words, her speech was forgotten. How many times did grandpa take her to this beach? How many bento lunches did they eat here while he told her stories about mom as a kid? Her past returns. Like the waves on the beach. She was sixteen when she moved. She didn't want to. But everything changed the day mom never showed up. She remembered getting bitchy. Talking shit about mom to other kids. But when the police car showed up, her life in California was taken away. Traffic accident. Simple as that. She never had a dad and now she didn't have a mom.
But she did have a grandpa.
People called her mom Dr. Sakai. She was a director of media. Forever on her phone, forever staring at screens. On any given day, mom might be compiling code, drafting a press release or kissing her goodbye before flying off to China for a conference. Everything revolved around tech. But for every vacation, they'd fly to Hawaii. Grandpa's house had no TV. No wifi. None of their screens worked in his tin-roofed, jungle shack. Nothing to do but sit on his lanai and look at the sea. And talk. Mom and grandpa had their own language.
"Eh, girl" said grandpa. "You like go surf, or wat?"
"Shoots" smiled mom. "But I need sunscreen."
"Sunscreen?" frowned grandpa. "How you figgah?"
"Well father," she winked at me, "scientific data backs up sunscreen as a viable preventive for various forms of skin cancer. To go without UV protection beneath a tropical sky is crazy."
"Ahh," nodded grandpa looking at me. "Health concerns. Wise. Yet you work 60 hours a week in a cubicle for some soulless corporation. You never see the sun and look like a cave fish in your bikini. Now that, my dear Zoe, is crazy."
"Eh! No make fun. You da lolo," huffs mom. "Are you still drinking yourself into a stupor each night, dear father?"
"True dat," grins grandpa opening another beer. "Ah, Zoe. How I've missed you!"
Her words poured out. When she was done, her face was streaked with tears. Her kids looked up at her nervously. They didn't know Hawaii. They never knew this part of her life. But the audience began their rowdy cheers and foot stomping. As she stepped down, a cousin she actually remembered stood up to hug her. Kaleo. The jerk that hid geckos in her clothes and laughed at her mainland accent.
"Beautiful, Honey Girl," says Kaleo hugging her.
"Honey Girl?" grins her eldest child shooting a look to her brother.

2016.11.05 07:39 WingedGeek WingX sectional vs TAC

Flew down to KMYF today for a TRACON tour. VFR, with flight following. They vectored us direct to Mount Soledad (VPSMS) which I expected; that's what they always use. Flying with my boss, he had WingX up on his iPad, I had ForeFlight open on mine.
He could not find the reporting point on his chart, and neither could I looking at his. It was readily visible on ForeFlight, and the 430 had the "intersection" (waypoint).
Looking at the charts, looks like ForeFlight overlays the (in this case San Diego) TAC when there is one, and uses the sectional (Los Angeles) otherwise; looks like WingX only uses the sectional, which doesn't identify that ( extremely common) waypoint.
I don't know anything about WingX. Can it be setup differently to show TAC data or is this a weakness in the product?

Questions Answers
Got tickets for The War Comes Home! what are you most excited for audiences to learn from the doc? I think the doc is very intense and very authentic--we really embedded with Delon and Garrett, so i hope everyone gets a very clear sense of what it's like to live with PTS, and what it was like for them to go through the tenth cohort of Save A Warrior. I think the conversation afterwards is really informative, it includes IAVA, Team Rubicon, Natl Assn of Black Veterans, Bush Institute, Dole Foundation (for Caregivers) Adam Corrolla, Milo Ventimiglia, JR Martinez, Peter Berg, Dr Loree K Sutton (Retired Brigadier General) Dr. Brian Rees MD (retired Colonel, specializing in PTS), Pastor Gregory Brooks,
Question for you: how did you hear about the project? just curious.
Care to share an insider's perspective on the state of media today? Specifically on the pressures a real journalist is under in order to function working for mainstream media? Were you ever pressured (or maybe just influenced) to slant a story a particular way, or were you always given full editorial control over your reporting? I never felt pressured to slant a story a particular way. i think the biggest issue is really lack of exposure to other points of view--so the repeated narrative is the same ole same ole. there are not enough voices around the table who say--hey, here's a completely different perspective on this. so what happens is the cliched story lives on. i never thought it was because of pressure, it was more (in my mind) because the voices framing the stories are not particularly diverse--and by diverse i mean racially ethnically demographically geographically age-wise, gender wise etc etc.
Is it difficult to manage motherhood, marriage and career for you? Yup and i think for every working mom and dad. there are only so many hours and motherhood and career and spouse each take up a ton of time. i try to get off my own back (guilt is sorta useless) and focus on being present wherever i am. if i'm stuck at work then i want to focus on getting that done. if i'm hanging out w the kids then i try to keep work to a minimum--but really for the most part it's just all a big crazy juggle.
What news outlet do you trust ? And when will you visit us in the NapaValley ? I read and watch everything--i think multiple sources is a good way of getting info, i think it's unwise to 'trust' a single source on anything. individuals i like? sopan deb at cbs, jamelle bouie, bomani jones, ryan lizza is awesome, everyone on hbo real sports, john oliver samantha bee, gwen ifill... list goes on and on... used to live in SF so i do love the napa valley. haven't been there in a long time!
What was your favorite story to cover ? Don't really have a favorite. love reporting on sports for RealSports, love reporting on race (black in america and latino in america docs). Very excited about my new film coming out tomorrow (one day only!) about veterans with PTS--it's beautiful and I think the conversation that follows the doc is really important. (shameless plug: go to fathomevents.com to buy tix and see theater locations)
Have you experienced sexism or disrespect by people you have interviewed? If so, how did you deal with it? Yeah, sure. i think the key is to not let others idiocy throw you off your game. in the moment i tend to deal w it by smiling nicely and informing them that i'm happy to get them a cup of coffee and i'm looking forward to interviewing them too. that tends to un-nerve them. for the most part i ignore people disrespecting me--it takes too much energy to focus on that crap and i have a lot to get done.
What are your thoughts on the news outlet bias that seems to be the future of news media? Is it difficult to report on issues that directly impact your identity, i.e. race, gender, political beliefs? Hmm no, i never found that. i think identity is really interesting--but i'm a big believer in using studies and data as the basis of my reporting. i believe good storytelling always rules. the doc that's running tomorrow (The War Comes Home --go to fathom.com for theaters and to buy tix) is about the identity of veterans. getting and up close and authentic look i think is very helpful to the doc--it makes it much better.
Hi. I hear you have a foundation. What does it do? We send girls to and through college--mostly girls who lack financial support. it's called the Starfish Foundation. We also hold PowHERful conferences, for girls, where we host a day long summit, in cities across the country, for high schoolers and college students looking to access info about jobs in STEM, opportunities for internships, and more!
What's the worst live shot you've ever had to do? God, so so many, in terms of really stupid live shots. once with a live fish, once w a cat, who was believed to have been reincarnated from a dead roommate (my husband said not my finest work). There are of course live shots from terribly tragic scenes--those are often the hardest to do because you're crying between shots.
What are some of your favorite documentaries? Just finished my 41st doc. my faves--first Black In America doc, the one about Silicon Valley too. Loved the doc I did about female rescue workers at ground zero. love my new project--The War Comes Home following two young men, both veterans with PTS, as they go through a week long program called Save A Warrior.
I am Latina trying to tell the stories of fellow Latinos in my community, do you have advice on how to get out there and talk to people and their stories? Is there a good starting point? Yeah, don't interview people--just talk to them. you won't get any good stories if people don't trust you. just hang out with people and when you do tell a story, whoever it features, make sure you fully feel the onus of doing a good job. having someone's story in your hands is a lot of power--respect that.
What advice would give to a very talented and smart girl in her early twenties that just can't seem to figure out what she wants to do with her life? What about shyness? Have you ever dealt with shyness growing up? I was pretty outgoing as a kid. i think for a twenty year old (or really everyone) try stuff. do internships, volunteer, expose yourself to interesting opportunities to get a sense of what your passion might be and how that might intersect with what you're good at. informational interviews are exhausting but helpful too.
I've finished my journalism college last year, I'm happy to ask another journalist some questions! What inspired you to become a journalist? Do you have any tips for a starting young journalist? Do you believe we could make a difference on the world? First, congrats! i started interning and immediately loved it (wbz tv in boston, which was back then an nbc station) tips? write write write. all the time. get your foot in the door. there is no question in my mind that journalists have a huge capacity to bring attention to important issues and thusly, facilitate change.
Im fine, but most are not. What was your experience as you were leaving the service--what programs, processes did they put you through to ensure that you were fine. some folks have told me there was not much in terms of a exit strategy out of the military. was that your experience?
My daughter is 12 years old and is a gifted writer. She is hoping to become a journalist in the future. If there is one piece of advice or support that I can give as a father toward her success as a young minority woman, what would it be? Tell her to keep writing, to work on finding her style and her voice. it took me a really long time. she should also get a lot of feedback from people she respects--who will give her honest and constructive advice. she should publish her work if she can--even on a friend's blog. oh and develop a very VERY thick skin.
How often are you recognized on the street? Fairly often, to the point i've had to stop running around in sweats and my hair in a scrunchy when i'm grabbing a quart of milk because there's a good chance i'll be in someone's selfie.
I used to work with Cliff Stoll and met you once on the set of The Site. What was it like to work with Cliff and Leo Laporte? BTW, it was nice meeting you. Aww that's so great. cliff was awesome, and completely insane, which i enjoyed. leo laporte was the best--really helpful and friendly (and as his alter-ego dev) completely awful! can you believe it's been 20 years since that show was on???
Did you leave CNN of your own volition or were you pushed out for your interview style? Left on my own. they wanted to take me off the morning show, but asked me to stay at cnn. i had done morning tv for a while, was ready to move on. they were my first client when i launched Starfish Media.
You are always so effective in giving speeches, answering questions, and formulating arguments. Really inspiring to watch you speak. How do you prepare for speaking engagements or for interviews? Be clear on what your message is--then build your speech to that point. be clear and concise--write like you'd speak, so it doesn't sound 'speechy" . i think the best strategy for sounding good is to really be prepared re: what you're talking about.
Thank you so much! Also I would love to screen The War Comes Home in my community (specifically for veterans, and local leaders who work with and for veterans at VA hospitals). Is there anyway to do so? Come see our film: The War Comes Home one day only --tomorrow Tues May 24th Find theaters and buy tickets at fathomevents.com i'm watching it in Union Square NYC tomorrow. not sure about next round of screenings, but we will let folks know.
What do you think journalism will look like in 10 years? Obviously huge shifts--Clearly digital even more important than it is now. my kids don't watch tv--ever. they see everything on their devices. i think that trend will continue.

Questions Answers
How have you built your personal brand as a journalist? What impact does a broadcaster's brand/personality have on their career? Where do you see your career going in the future? How is being a female broadcaster different than being a male broadcaster? Are you assigned different stories? Do you get more critiques from your bosses that are appearance based? Do you believe there is a wage gap between men and women in your field? You know i think your personal brand, which is very like, I think at the end f the day, its about doing a good job and having a reputation - before it was PB it was a reputation-n for doing things well and having a high quality, if you can stick to that you get a reputation for doing things well, and then if you can, even on projects on that aren’t particularly the greatest, you know - they used to quote Jodie Foster, put on a grape suit and be the best grape you can be - and I think there is some truth to that. To your next question…yes to all - clearly. Ive never been a male broadcaster, I can only speak from female perspective, Ive had many conversations about my hair and appearance. And people telling me, well I need to hear from a real black person or a real Latina. Clearly there is a wage differential I think its been proven over an over it again. and clearly if you’re a minority. Everyone feels free to weigh in, I never had a job where everyone didn’t weight in on what you’re wearing, how your hair is cut or how much weight you gained when you were pregnant. With assignments, the ones who assign you are humans, human beings brings their biases with them. So when I was reporting for example in Haiti, I’d get a lot of questions like whats it like to be a Mom reporting in Haiti. There are people dying all over the place, what do you think its like to be a human being in Haiti at this moment, it had nothing to do with being a mom. When I was pregnant with my second daughter and there were questions about whether I’d fly into to Cuba to go and over a story because I was 8 months pregnant. I kept requesting candies, and water because my photographer was diabetic and it was 90 degrees and he was feeling awful. I was fine, he’s a diabetic - and everyone assumed I was the one falling apart. When I covered the tsunami in Thailand, I had just had my twins and 4 children under 4. There was clear assumption that I wouldn’t go. The woman who called me, she said I know you’re a new mom, you’re not going to want to go. I said I have 4 children under 4 - Thailand it is, let me go. You get it all the time, its not even worth mentioning because you’ll lose your mind every time, so you just suck it up and keep going.
What 5 things would u try to experience if u could be the opposite gender for a day? So if I could be the opposite gender for a day – can I be the opposite race too? Can I be a white male? I'm going to take that privilege and just do it, 'cause I'm a white male. I think it'd be great to walk into places and have everybody assume that you're in the right place and you belong there – I remember my husband once got on the plane to a foreign country without his passport (he's white). Why? Because he looks like a guy who just forgot his passport! No one would ever let me on a plane like that – I've even had people at the TSA say "Oh my God! Soledad! So great to see you. Where you is your ID?" You know? So that would be one.
I don't know – I think it would be really interesting to see if all the lame-ass lines people threw at you would really work on somebody, because they certainly don't work on me.
I think it'd be really nice to eat all you want to, all the time, and not think about 'Am I gonna go to the gym? Am I gonna go to bikram? Am I gonna go kickboxing?' and just snarf whatever you want like my husband's able to do.
What else? I think it would be really interesting to be in meetings where you could just repeat what someone else just said and get all the credit for it. Be like "You know, I know Jane just said this but here's what I believe..." and repeat verbatim what that person said, just as a test to see – and everyone would be like "Oh my God. Soledad, you're amazing. Soledad is a male. You're amazing. That's genius!" and everyone would forget that Jane just said it.
I think it'd be really interesting to be a parent as a guy because I know my husband when he would take the four kids, people were just impressed and overwhelmed that he was a Dad. Like "Oh my God, you're an amazing father – you're taking all four of them out to dinner? Ah! Where is your wife? You're amazing!" and meanwhile I'm traveling or something – and I do that all the time! No one ever thinks it's great when a mother does it. I think that'd be really cool to be like "Yes, I'm the Dad, dedicated and devoted. I'm amazing"
Hi Soledad, are there any media outlets—whether online or on TV/print—that do a great job at catering to the ever-growing U.S.-born Latino population? If so, which ones? If not, why aren't there any? Yeah, I actually think that there's more coverage. You know who's doing a really interesting job? Latino Rebels. They're online. I follow them on Twitter. I think they're great, and I think they really challenge the status quo. They're very aggressive, I don't agree with everything they write, but I think that they do a good job of gathering a lot of information. I like them a lot. And we don't always agree, but I think that that's a great place. I think we're seeing a lot more media covering Latino issues. Certainly in some mainstream media, it's kind of the same old, same old, where immigration status is the only story they'll do. It's one of the reasons we decided we would do our Latino in America tour—to have a conversation about ethnicity and the election in this country, at a time when really probably the main story that everyone covers is immigration, immigration, immigration. But actually, if you look at Latino voters, it's not even the top thing on their list—it's education.
So I think there's a lot to talk about. But yeah, I think the key, actually, is to read everything. You're not going to agree with everybody every time, but just to increase the number of publications that you're reading. We've been really trying to elevate some of the ones that we like (certainly on my Twitter page), just constantly digging in. In terms of reports, the Pew Hispanic reporting is great. Just tons of data, data, data. They do a fantastic job. So I'd highly recommend looking at that, just for raw data as well.
What is the secret to a good interview? The secret to a good interview is #1 – have a plan. I usually write out my questions and really think specifically about what I'm trying to get them to say... what's the point? What is the goal? Why this person? Why are they on? Why did we book them today? And then I chuck my first question, because usually it's something very benign like "So – why did you write a book?" or something stupid and you really want to jump right into the meat of the interview, so ditch the first question which is usually lame anyway. Go right for the second question, which is usually kind of going for the jugular, fast. And then I think it's also about listening – I used to be so nervous when I did interviews that someone could admit to killing their mother and I'd be like "oh, ok – anyway, next question!". And you realize that you have to listen...and you have to be calm enough and thinking enough that you can listen and formulate your next question and follow the interview, which sounds really easy – but it's actually kind of hard. So it's about really knowing where you're going, doing tons of research, ditching the lame questions and then listen, listen, listen so that you can really participate thoughtfully in the interview.
Can you give an example of when an interview subject was patronizing to you, and how did you handle it? What's your advice or strategy for dealing with people you must work with who look down on you because of your race, or ethnicity, or gender, while also being respectful to yourself? I'll answer the second part first. I am now the CEO of my own company, so clearly, I think I've answered that. I think there's a really big value in leaving if you feel like you're not being treated particularly well, and you want to really listen to your own voice. I think that's been a really nice thing about running my own thing.
Sometimes it's this intangible sense that someone's being snotty or snarky. Occasionally, I would go in and someone would mistake me for a PA early on in my career, when I was the anchor. They would say, "Hey, honey! Can you get me a cup of coffee?" And I was like, "Sure! Yeah!"
I'd come back with coffee and then sit down and grill them. They were always like, "Oh my God!" A little surprised.
I just think you can't really be knocked off your game by worrying about what other people are thinking about you. You'll spend a lot of time, so I just don't bother. I don't really care if people like me or not. I don't really care how they feel about what we're doing. The only thing I have to do is execute on a good interview, or a good report. And that's what I focus on. I think you expend a lot of energy that you may not have if you're very focused on crap people are thinking about you.
Being the child of immigrants, what is your opinion of the US immigration policy? How might the immigration problem in the this country be addressed. Well, that's kind of the $64,000 question, isn't it? I think that being a child of immigrants and having siblings, you understand the degree to which we need to figure out the immigration challenge in this country. It's just a mess. It doesn't make sense, it divides families, everybody's unhappy about it. So I do think we need some kind of comprehensive immigration reform. Exactly what the details of that will be obviously need to be worked out. But what we do know now is that you don't have anything that makes a lot of sense, and a lot of the options that are on the table, if you listen to the candidates, also don't make a lot of sense.
I also think the tone around immigration is just nasty. It's hostile. It's unfortunate, and it happens every four years, like clockwork. Everybody starts up again against this really anti-immigrant sentiment, so I think that's very disheartening and I think it plays a role in the election. I think even though Latinos don't vote on immigration as their number one topic when they're polled, I think it absolutely does play a role. And I think that candidates who alienate the Latino community often pay for it later.
¡Holá Soledad! What is your opinion on Trump? What about Bernie? Well, Donald Trump. My goodness. He's certainly been taking all the headlines lately. I think actually for both of them, the main thing is we're way way out from the election and we're at that stage when everyone has to one up each other and be crazy and over the top and thats how you get press, and it's how do you don't spend your own money to try to be seen by people. I think that we're just way early on it. If that last go round is any example, saying inflammatory over the top things works really well in the primary, but comes back to to bite you in the ass in the general election. I think that's something Donald Trump's people might want to think about. As a journalist its amazing! Its incredible to watch whats unfolding. Same thing with Bernie Sanders, it'll be interesting to see how far he'll go and what he can do. He's a completely different category in terms of being over the top than Trump, but its early, its way, way early and there's no way you can tell whats going to happen in a year plus from now.

2015.05.19 02:55 CSTheoryBot On the tightness of an SDP relaxation of k-means

On the tightness of an SDP relaxation of k-means
Authors: Takayuki Iguchi, Dustin G. Mixon, Jesse Peterson, Soledad Villar Download: PDF Abstract: Recently, Awasthi et al. introduced an SDP relaxation of the $k$-means problem in $\mathbb Rm$. In this work, we consider a random model for the data points in which $k$ balls of unit radius are deterministically distributed throughout $\mathbb Rm$, and then in each ball, $n$ points are drawn according to a common rotationally invariant probability distribution. For any fixed ball configuration and probability distribution, we prove that the SDP relaxation of the $k$-means problem exactly recovers these planted clusters with probability $1-e{-\Omega(n)}$ provided the distance between any two of the ball centers is $>2+\epsilon$, where $\epsilon$ is an explicit function of the configuration of the ball centers, and can be arbitrarily small when $m$ is large.
