Former president Jimmy Carter announced Wednesday that he has cancer and will be undergoing treatment at Emory Healthcare in Atlanta.

..

Carter, 90, said the disease was discovered during recent liver surgery to remove "a small mass" and that the cancer "is now in other parts of my body."

..

"I will be rearranging my schedule as necessary so I can undergo treatment by physicians at Emory Healthcare," Carter said in a statement on the Carter Center Web site. "A more complete public statement will be made when facts are known, possibly next week."

..

In a statement, President Obama said he and first lady Michelle Obama wished Carter "a full and fast recovery."

..

"Our thoughts and prayers are with [wife] Rosalynn and the entire Carter family as they face this challenge with the same grace and determination that they have shown so many times before," Obama said in a statement released by the White House. "Jimmy, you're as resilient as they come, and along with the rest of America, we are rooting for you."

,

The president also spoke with Carter on Wednesday evening to wish him full and speedy recovery and extended best wishes on behalf of himself and first lady Michelle Obama, White House spokesman Eric Schultz said.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KfANs2y_frk

http://highline.huffingtonpost.com/articles/en/the-myth-of-the-ethical-shopper/

We would like to believe that conscientious shopping can change the world, but this excellent essay shows how
complicated and difficult that is.  The first link is to a video of an interesting street test suggesting that

easy.


Helping: What happens when a city gives its poor residents money without strings?

The Self: "Self-proclaimed experts more vulnerable to the illusion of knowledge"

http://www.psychologicalscience.org/index.php/news/releases/self-proclaimed-experts-more-vulnerable-to-the-illusion-of-kn
owledge.html

Like I'm telling you something you didn't already know.  "New research reveals that the more people think they
know about a topic in general, the more likely they are to allege knowledge of completely made-up information
and false facts, a phenomenon known as 'overclaiming.'"

Methods: Correlation is not causation

https://vimeo.com/115188874 (6:00)

https://vimeo.com/115124741 (8:37)

The first animated video does a nice job of illustrating and explaining the concept of correlation.  The
second video addresses why a correlation does not imply causation, and it also explains how to test a causal
hypothesis.

Preference Testing - What to Do Before You Run A/B Tests

By Jenifer Winter.

"In the world of user research, A/B testing is one of the most popular

Text Justification and Accessibility

By Allayne Woodford.

"When it comes to creating accessible content, focus can tend to be on
headings, images and use of colour. Get those things right and you're
well on the way to the metaphorical tick for accessibility. Taking
things to the next level though, considerations include (but are very
much not limited to) the use of tables, font styling and even text

How 70s Appliances can Explain the Difference Between UX and UI

By Mike Monteiro.

"...If you're sitting at your desk designing things based on a
styleguide and a pattern library while looking at some wireframes and
flow diagrams that someone handed you, you're doing UI. If you're
going out and meeting the people using your product or service,
listening to how they use it, making decisions based on that
knowledge, testing and improving, and taking into consideration things
that happen before and after they interact with your product or
service, you're doing UX..."

Making Your Icons User-Friendly - A Guide to Usability in UI Design

By Hannah Alvarez.

"...This may come as a disappointment to those who say a picture is
worth a thousand words: Labels dramatically increase the usability of
icons. It's a common misconception that users (especially mobile
users) will tap around and play with all the different icons
cheerfully until they discover what each icon does. In reality, users
are often intimidated by new interfaces and don't explore outside
their comfort zone..."

Apple's Products are Getting Harder to Use Because They Ignore

The officer involved in the fatal shooting of 19-year-old Christian Taylor has been terminated, Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson said Tuesday.

..

Johnson cited several examples of poor judgment in the incident as reasons for Officer Brad Millers termination. He said he made the decision after receiving a briefing from investigators Tuesday morning and the decision was his alone.

..

Miller, 49, fatally shot Taylor, who was unarmed, during a burglary call at Classic Buick GMC near Interstate 20 and Collins Street early Friday. The incident began after private security for the car dealership called 911 shortly after 1 a.m. to report that Taylor was damaging a car in the parking lot.

..

This is a extraordinarily difficult case, Johnson said. Decisions were made that have a catastrophic outcome.

..

Millers poor judgement in tactics in the shooting officially led to his firing, but the fact that Taylor was shot and killed played a role in the chiefs decision, police spokesman Christopher Cook said.

..

Since Miller was still in field training at the time of the shooting, he cannot appeal the firing.

..

Johnson said that he had serious concerns as to the rationale articulated as to the use of deadly force, but believed those concerns are best addressed through a criminal investigations process.

..

..

After the officers determined the need to establish a perimeter on the west side of the building, Miller and his training officer, Cpl. Dale Wiggins, headed that way but Wiggins stopped to talk to the officer who was speaking with Taylor.

..

Miller kept going and after spotting the broken glass that Taylor had driven his Jeep through, entered into the showroom alone. Taylor ran to a different part of the building and tried to break through a glass door to get out, Johnson said.

..

Miller followed Taylor and told him to get on the ground. Taylor turned to Miller and began to rapidly approach while cursing, Johnson said. He said Miller retreated while giving commands.

..

Wiggins, urgently trying to rejoin Miller, entered the building and saw Taylor approaching Miller who was stationary. Wiggins removed his Taser from its holster and heard a pop. Johnson said he thought it was Miller deploying his Taser, but it turned out to be Miller firing his weapon the first time, though its unclear if he hit Taylor.

..

Wiggins used his Taser and Taylor continued to advance toward Miller, who then fired his weapon three more times. Taylor was about seven to 10 feet away from Miller when the shots were fired. During the course of the incident, there was no physical contact between Miller and Taylor, Johnson said.

..

Johnson said that Millers decision to go in alone without telling Wiggins his intent was not a good strategy and put the officers on scene in a position of undue risk.

..

He said Miller, who believed he was alone in the showroom, feared that Taylor could overpower him. Miller was unaware that his field training officer was about four feet away from him at the time of the shooting.

..

This fear and feeling of isolation was a result of his poor decision to enter the building without assistance and without an arrest plan, Johnson said.

Rand Paul apart, there seems to be near unanimity on three dominant themes.

..

The first is that the U.S. economy is currently underperforming -- doing less well in terms of competitiveness and employment than it could and should -- and is doing so primarily because of excessive regulation, burdensome taxation and the inflated size of government sustained by the Obama Administration.

..

The second is that U.S. foreign policy abroad is currently both ineffectual and threatening to our domestic national security, and is so partly because of the naivety and lack of patriotism of the President himself, and partly because of the propensity of the State Department under both Clinton and Kerry to under-resource our allies and to under-estimate our enemies.

..

The third is that the two weaknesses -- economic underperformance at home and the ineffectual deployment of U.S. power abroad -- are linked; and that the way to resolve both is to spend more on our military, not less, and to deploy that military capacity in an ever more aggressive assault on radical Islamic terrorism.

..

There were dissenting voices on the stage last night -- John Kasich refusing to send another U.S. soldier into harm's way unless it was absolutely necessary, and Rand Paul pointing out how so much of our military equipment ends up in the hands of people who hate us. There was even a Jeb Bush concession that, with the wisdom of hindsight, the decision to invade Iraq was a mistake. But none of that broke the thrust of the over-riding message from the rest: that America (to be strong again) needs to be more belligerent, not less, in the Middle East; that the Middle East is currently unstable because the Obama Administration withdrew from Iraq too quickly and signed a deal with Iran too lightly; and that unless we completely destroy ISIS on its own territory, ISIS will come after us and attempt to destroy America here.

..

Lindsay Graham was the only one honest enough to insist that the United States needs to put troops back on the ground in the Middle East if ISIS is to be defeated there: But he was not alone in seeking to establish his credentials by beating the drums of war.

..

snip

..

The economic under-performance that so concerns the current crop of Republican candidates did not start with the Obama Administration. It predated it.

..

snip

..

The instabilities of the Middle East are not the product of any naivety or lack of patriotism on the part of President Obama. If there is an administration in recent US history that is guilty of naivety, it is surely the administration of Obama's immediate predecessor. We live now in the shadow of the ill-informed Bush decision to invade Iraq.

..

snip

..

Economic under-performance at home and ineffectual U.S. foreign policy abroad may well be linked, but the direction of causality is exactly the opposite of the one canvassed by Republicans in their first debate. It is because too much U.S. treasure and personnel are deployed militarily abroad that the resources necessary for nation-building at home are so depleted. It is because we are currently overstretched abroad that we are under-resourced at home.

Why Scott Walker is so Dangerous

By Dana Milbank

Scott Walker enlists working people to help the rich.

July 27, 2015

Chicago Tribune

First off," Scott Walker proclaimed, "we took on the unions, and we won. We won!"

..

Taking on the unions is usually first off for Walker, the Wisconsin governor and Republican presidential candidate. It is the very rationale for his candidacy. And on Thursday, he took a detour from the campaign trail to appear here before the annual meeting of the conservative American Legislative Exchange Council, a group of state legislators dedicated in large part to defeating unions.

..

ALEC, which inspired many of Walker's anti-labor efforts in Wisconsin, drew several hundred union protesters as legislators arrived here this week for its annual conference and this delighted Walker. "I understand you had a few protesters yesterday," he told the conservative legislators. "For us, that's just getting warmed up. That's nothing. We got 100,000 protesters."

..

snip

..

This is the essence of Walker's appeal and why he is so dangerous. He is not as outrageous as Donald Trump and Sen. Ted Cruz of Texas, but his technique of scapegoating unions for the nation's ills is no less demagogic. Sixty-five years ago, another man from Wisconsin made himself a national reputation by frightening the country about the menace of communists, though the actual danger they represented was negligible. Scott Walker is not Joe McCarthy, but his technique is similar: He suggests that the nation's ills can be cured by fighting labor unions (foremost among the "big government special interests" hurting America), even though unions represent just 11 percent of the American workforce and have been at a low ebb.

..

Earlier this year, Walker likened the union protesters in Madison, Wis., to the murderous ISIS: "If I can take on 100,000 protesters, I can do the same across the world." Before that, he described public sector union members as the "haves" taking advantage of the "have-nots" the taxpayers.

..

He denounced the protests against his efforts to undo the unions as "thuggery." He described collective bargaining as a "corrupt system" and diagnosed union leaders as having a "sense of entitlement." After beating public sector unions and surviving recall, Walker this year signed anti-union right-to-work legislation. He has said he doesn't think the minimum wage serves a purpose, and he has opposed prevailing-wage and living-wage requirements.

..

snip

..

Such deception, however, is only in the service of the larger deceit at the core of his candidacy: By scapegoating toothless trade unions as powerful and malign interests, he enlists working people in his cause of aiding the rich and the strong.

Commentary: Koch Brothers' New Mantra: #Richlivesmatter

By Rex W. Huppke

Sharelines:

The Koch brothers introduce the civil rights issue of our time:
Rich lives matter.

Charles Koch compares conservative activists to past civil rights
movements. #RichLivesMatter

August 3, 2015

Charles and his brother David Koch allowed some reporters to attend the usually secretive weekend forum hosted by Freedom Partners Chamber of Commerce, the funding arm of the brothers' political network, under the agreement that none of the 450 rich attendees would be identified without their consent.

..

I was not one of the journalists invited, which is a shame, because I enjoy Southern California luxury resorts, "sumptuous" buffets and outdoor chandeliers dangling from metal poles. I also feel that wealthy people have a God-given right to make themselves wealthier under the guise of helping the non-wealthy (#RichLivesMatter) and I can be made to feel even more strongly about that for $1 million. (Koch Bros., shoot me a note at rhuppke@... and I'll give you my PayPal account info.)

..

According to a report by Politico, Charles Koch "called on the assembled business leaders to reject 'corporate welfare,' which, he said, is creating 'a two-tier society' by 'creating a permanent underclass, crippling our economy and corrupting the business community present company excepted, of course.' "

..

Yes, present company excepted, except that, according to Good Jobs First, a group that promotes corporate and government accountability in economic development, Koch Industries has received $190 million in government subsidies since 1990.

..

"If we cannot unite the majority of Americans behind the vision, then we're done for," Koch said, according to a Washington Post report. "So that to me has to be our number-one objective. But to do so, we've got to do a much better job of understanding what matters most to people, and then to demonstrate that a free society gives them the best opportunity of achieving that."

..

It's a simple process, really. Imagine this conversation between a person who can afford to buy an island and "a poor." (Poor is defined as anyone who cannot afford to donate at least $100,000 to a Koch-backed group and receive an invitation to a forum like the one held last weekend. I, for example, am a poor.)

..

Island Buyer: "What is it that's important to you, poor?"

..

Poor: "I would like to work and see my career advance and have health care and be able to take care of my family."

..

Island Buyer: "OK, the best way to do that is to cut government regulations, lower corporate taxes and convince people that solar power causes cancer."

..

Poor: "Cool! Thanks!"

..

Island Buyer: "Sure thing. I'm going to go buy more islands."

..

That exchange exemplifies the most important tool in this particular civil rights battle: lying.

Jeb Bush Quietly Suggests Phasing Out Medicare

by Tara Culp-Ressler

July 23, 2015 12:12pm

Think Progress

..

..


GOP presidential candidate Jeb Bush suggested that the United States should figure out a way to phase out Medicare, the federal program that provides insurance to more than 50 million elderly and disabled people, at a political event on Wednesday night.

..

MSNBC reports that Bush was speaking at an event sponsored by Americans for Prosperity, a right-wing group backed by the billionaire Koch Brothers that has doggedly advocated against fully implementing the Affordable Care Act.

..

In his comments, Bush referenced Rep. Paul Ryans (R-WI) politically contentious plan to radically restructure the Medicare program which independent analysts predicted would more than double health costs for the average 65-year-old and criticized progressive lawmakers for failing to engage with Ryans proposals. Despite recent evidence that the programs finances are secure, the former Florida governor suggested that Medicare isnt solvent.

..

snip

..

As MSNBCs Steve Benen points out, the position that the United States should end Medicare altogether is radical even among Republicans, who typically avoid taking the stance that the massive federal health program should be eliminated.

GOP lawmakers have pushed back on Democrats characterization that Ryans proposal to privatize Medicare amounts to ending the program as we know it, maintaining that they simply want to reform it. Even so, efforts to implement those reforms have been unsuccessful in Congress, largely because the health program is very popular among seniors and talking about changing it can be a political liability. This spring, Republicans quietly dropped the proposed policy in budget negotiations, and analysts predicted that the party might finally be giving up the fight against Medicare.

Settlement Creates Questions for Councilors

CHICOPEE While the city of Chicopee may have reached a settlement in the alleged police brutality case involving Maylene Maldonado, the City Council voted to delay approving the settlement until they can have their questions answered by the city attorney assigned to the issue.

..

The council had to approve the allocation of $135,000 the settlement amount at its Aug. 4 meeting, but a slender majority of the councilors said they were uncomfortable about approving the amount until they had their questions answered.

..

snip

..

The lawsuit named the city of Chicopee, Sgt. Daniel Major, Officer Ryan Moran, Officer John Birks, Sgt. Jeffrey Godere, Officer Travis Odiorne, Officer Andre Remillard, Capt. Mark Gilbert and former Police Chief Thomas Charette.

..

The lawsuit charged that on Feb. 17, 2013, Maldonado was unjustifiably choked and beaten by Chicopee Police Sergeant Daniel Major while Birks, Godere, Moran and Remillard watched and did not intervene. Gilbert was the commanding officer so the midnight to 8 a.m. shift.

..

The video of the incident gained national attention.

..

Mayor Richard Kos announced the settlement through a press release on July 30. Kos stated, An important factor in settling now is the number of defendants and the cost for legal representation to the city as this matter continues. It was determined to be in the citys best interest to resolve this claim at this time.

..

Joel McAuliffe, Kos communications and special projects manager, said the mayor would not make any other statements about the settlement. He noted that none of the officers in question received any disciplinary action for the incident that happened during the previous administration.

..

All of the officers except Major and Charette are still with the department.

..

snip

..

Councilor Adam Lamontagne said, Sure we can send a check, but I think it sends a wrong message its a slippery slope if we approve this tonight.

..

Zygarowksi, citing his own experience as a police officer, insisted, that even though his colleagues questions may be answered to their satisfaction, Were still going to have to pay that amount of money.

..

The alternative is taking the case to court and Councilor William Zaskey noted the fees for the attorneys needed might well exceed the $1 million that Maldonado was originally seeking.

..

Former Mayor Michael Bissonnette, under whose administration the incident happened, also opposed the settlement. Writing on his Facebook page, he said, We often took cases to trial because we had an experienced litigator on staff and we prevailed saving the taxpayers millions in settlements and legal fees.

Alabama Case Fills Out the Police Brutality Bingo Card

This story out of Huntsville, Ala., reads like a checklist of police brutality cases.

..

Excessive force? Check.

..

Huntsville police officer Brett Russell is charged with use of excessive force and obstruction of justice, stemming from an arrest made by Russell in 2011.

..

Russell is charged after a 2011 altercation with Gary Wayne Hopkins, who was being placed under arrest after a domestic violence call.

..

snip

..

List of Items in Check List [All are positive for the "Bingo Card"]

..

Coverup by fellow officers? Check.

Fears of retaliation for violating the blue code of silence? Check.

Falsified police reports that are contradicted by video and other evidence? Check.

Abusive cop who was allowed to return to the force? Check.

Prosecution by federal officials only after local officials let the officer off? Check.

Officer still collecting paychecks while on trial for federal civil rights violations? And . . . check.

..

The only thing missing here is the common racial element. In this case the officer is black, his victim is white. The other cops who lied for the black cop were also white. When it comes to covering up brutality, the blue code apparently transcends race. Progress!

..

Shooting of Unarmed White Teenager, Zachary Hammond,
Enters National Debate

Eric S. Bland, a lawyer for the Hammond family, has demanded that the news media treat the killing of Mr. Hammond as they have recent shootings of unarmed black men, and some supporters on social media agree.

..

The national debate over the police and race has grown in the year since Michael Brown was fatally shot in Ferguson, Mo., on Aug. 9, 2014, as the shootings of black men have been elevated in the public eye by body cameras, dashboard camera footage, security cameras and cellphone videos.

..

snip

..

But the police shooting of Mr. Hammond on July 26 has so far drawn little of the same public attention, in part because of a lack of video footage.

..

Thom Berry, a spokesman for the South Carolina Law Enforcement Division, which has been charged with conducting an independent investigation, said on Friday that there was dashboard video camera footage in the Hammond shooting.

..

At some point in time it will become a public record, he said. He did not say when.

..

Mr. Bland said the Hammond family had obtained an independent autopsy that shows the young man was shot with the .45-caliber handgun in the back left shoulder and the left side of his chest: a distinction that was not in the official autopsy and one that he said dashed the impression that the officer was going to be hit by the car.

..

The report by the county coroner, Karl E. Addis, has ruled Mr. Hammonds death a homicide.

The Real Whistle-Blower in Police Brutality

By Aaron Paxton Arnold

Updated 3:35 PM ET, Fri August 7, 2015

CNN

http://www.cnn.com/2015/08/07/opinions/arnold-police-shootings/

..

..


(CNN)If I could design the next cover of New York Magazine, I'd borrow the same concept as the powerful and widely noted display of 35 of Bill Cosby's accusers.

..

But instead of the women who said they were victimized by the famous actor and comedian, I'd grace the cover with the many unarmed black men and women gunned down by police over the last few years alone -- and use the empty chair to symbolize the next victim and those who died without any publicity.

..

But that won't happen, so I thank you Facebook, I thank you Twitter, I thank you Instagram and all other social media platforms that have shined the light on police brutality. Thank you Android, I thank you iPhone, I thank you Blackberry (yes some of us still use them) and other smart phone devices.

..

If not for you, too many Americans would continue to think that African-Americans and people of color in general were merely crying wolf when it came to the rampant killing of unarmed black people that has plagued us for decades. And we must thank the police body-cams because they, too, are now telling the story of many whose accounts have gone ignored for years.

..

A segment of America wouldn't believe that false police testimonies and coverups even existed despite years of protests from the African-American community.

..

In 2015, it's not the American justice system that's bringing attention to the disproportionate number of African-Americans being murdered by police, but smartphones and social media platforms.

..

snip

..

However, the strained relationship between African-Americans and law-enforcement runs deep. It goes back as far as the systematic oppression of Jim Crow. So when yet another unarmed black man, Samuel DuBose, 43, is shot and killed at the hands of the now ex-University of Cincinnati police officer, Ray Tensing, who claims he feared for his life despite contradictory video evidence, it reeks of another failure of justice. Tensing was indicted, charged with murder and voluntary manslaughter and bonded out of jail.

Police in Texas said today that the FBI will assist in an investigation into the actions of a white police officer who fatally shot a black teen at a car dealership in suburban Dallas.

..

"The facts available today do not answer all questions or alleviate all concerns," Arlington Police Chief Will Johnson said during a news conference.

..

The death of Christian Taylor, 19, who played football for Angelo State University, has raised questions in the wake of several high-profile police shootings across the country over the past year.

..

snip

..

Johnson told reporters that the officers spotted Taylor in the building and believed a felony burglary was in progress. Johnson said that following an altercation, Miller fired his weapon four times.

..

The medical examiner has ruled Taylor's death a homicide and determined the cause of death to be "gunshot wounds to the neck, chest and abdomen."

Answers Sought in Police Shooting of Unarmed Christian Taylor

The police in Arlington, Tex., asked the F.B.I. to help investigate the shooting death of an unarmed black college student who was killed by a police trainee early Friday morning inside a car dealership.

..

Chief Will Johnson of the Arlington Police Department said that the trainee, Brad Miller, 49, shot and killed Christian Taylor, a 19-year-old football player at Angelo State University in San Angelo, Tex., as he attempted to flee from police officers who had been dispatched to the dealership after reports of a suspected burglary.

..

Chief Johnson pledged a transparent, thorough and fair investigation, but warned that it might be lengthy and at times frustratingly slow. He said that he had invited Thomas M. Class Sr., the special agent in charge of the F.B.I.s Dallas division, to participate.

..

Our pledge is to provide answers in the most thorough and expeditious manner possible, Chief Johnson said at a news conference on Saturday night. He also included an acknowledgment that this instance has not occurred in isolation, but rather has occurred as our nation is grappling with the problems of social injustice, inequities, racism and police misconduct.

..

Officer Miller had been placed on administrative leave pending the outcome of the investigation, Chief Johnson said.

..

He said Officer Miller had not yet been interviewed about the incident, a delay that Chief Johnson described as standard police practice. He told reporters that the department would release recordings of both the 911 call that preceded the incident and police radio traffic, but that it would not do so until the two officers at the shooting, Officer Miller and his training officer, had submitted statements. He estimated that would take seven to 10 days.

..

Chief Johnson said the police were called to a Classic Buick GMC dealership in Arlington shortly after 1 a.m. Friday, where they found Mr. Taylor roaming freely inside the showroom. A Jeep had crashed through the front window.

..

The officers ordered Mr. Taylor to lie down, and when he fled instead, they chased him. He was found trying to get out of the building through a locked glass door. Chief Johnson said that the two officers struggled with Mr. Taylor and that Officer Miller fired four shots.

..

Mr. Taylor was struck multiple times, Chief Johnson said, and was declared dead on the scene. Investigators later determined that he had no weapon.

ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) A police officer in suburban Dallas shot and killed a college football player during a struggle after the unarmed 19-year-old crashed a car through the front window of a car dealership, authorities said.

..

The Tarrant County Medical Examiner's Office identified the dead man as Christian Taylor, of Arlington. Taylor was a sophomore at Angelo State University in San Angelo.

..

Officers were responding to a burglary call about 1 a.m. Friday in Arlington when they discovered someone had driven a vehicle through a front window of the Classic Buick GMC, according to a statement from the Arlington Police Department. The statement said police approached the suspect and a struggle ensued. At some point during the struggle, an officer shot Taylor.

..

Police identified the officer as Brad Miller, a 49-year-old who has been with the department since last September and who has been working under the supervision of a training officer since his graduation from the police academy in March. The police statement said Miller had no police experience before joining the Arlington police force.

..

He will be placed on administrative leave, which is routine in such cases. Independent criminal and administrative investigations, according to the police statement.

..

The shooting comes amid increased scrutiny nationwide of police use of force, particularly in cases involving black suspects. Taylor was black. The race of the officer was not immediately known.

..

The case resonated on social media, with posts questioning the official account that Taylor was committing a robbery and asking why there was no video of the altercation.

Is There a Better Way to Talk About Wine?

But, as extravagant tasting notes have become de rigeur in the marketing world, theyve also arguably lost their practical function as consumer guides. A 2007 study published in the Journal of Wine Economics gave amateur drinkers two different glasses of Bordeaux along with a professional critics tasting notes, and asked them to match each review with the correct glass. An unctuous 2000 Clos du Marquis supposedly evoked cre de cassis, vanilla, and cherry; the 2000 Cheau Talbot had flavors of licorice, herb, earth, and leather. The subjects performed no better at identifying each wine than if theyd guessed at random. Read any wine review or bottle label today and you will likely empathize with their confusion. Swallowing a substance that tastes of strawberry bubble gum with tar sounds like punishment, yet somehow Suckling extols this Montalcino as delicious; a drink with flavors of graphite mixed with pe de fruit, hoisin sauce, warm ganache, and well-roasted applewood calls to mind a dinner party gone wrong, not a Wine Spectator Pick of the Year. And how can one know whether a bottle that the bimonthly newsletter Wine Advocate dubbed liquefied Viagra pairs better with salmon or pork?

..

Frustrated with the state of modern winespeak, some academics, sommeliers, and critics are attempting to rein in tasting notes and develop new idioms that convey quality more concretely. A group of researchers known as the American Association of Wine Economists has waged a nearly decade-long crusade against overwrought and unreliable flavor descriptions. In 2007, the associations Journal of Wine Economics ran an analysis of wine critics which concluded that the industry was, in no uncertain terms, intrinsically bullshit-prone.

..

snip

..

The figure most responsible for the emergence of the modern sommelier lexicon was not a swish-and-spit celebrity like Parker but a professor of viticulture and enology at the University of California at Davis named Ann Noble. In 1984, Noble, drawing upon the work of other sensory scientists at Davis, published the Wine Aroma Wheel, a circular chart of six dozen descriptors that could be used to describe wine by smell. Like Ballester, Noble, who is now a professor emeritus at Davis, told me that she was motivated, in part, by a desire to eradicate fuzzy concepts. She organized her chart into broad categories such as spicy (cloves, black pepper, and licorice) or fruity (strawberry, lemon, and melon), and in an accompanying user guide argued against terms that were hedonic or the result of an integrated or judgmental response, and in favor of specific and analytical ones. (Minerality didnt make the cut.) For the first time, winemakers, critics, and consumers had a common lexicon to draw upon. One researcher at the Burgundy School of Business told me that the Aroma Wheel is considered the Ten Commandments of the wine world. (Calvin Trillin wrote about Noble, and the challenges of telling a red wine from a white, in 2002.)

..

But even with a standardized vocabulary, the flavor of winelike any form of tasteis dependent in large part upon the biases and predilections of the person doing the tasting.

..

snip

..

So how best to confront the obfuscating nature of modern winespeak? One option is to think of flavor in terms of chemistry rather than gastronomy. In April, the Guild of Sommeliers, a nonprofit association of fine-wine specialists, created a cheat sheet encouraging wine professionals to name the chemical compounds that are responsible for the odors in a glass.

..

snip

..

Yet there is something a bit dreary about Kramers call for such unvarnished expressions of judgmentsomething as inaccessible, in its way, as references to thiols or pyrazines. If such approaches can help to bring much-needed precision to wine reviews, they also seem less likely to stimulate a drinkers curiosity or imagination in the way that a fruit salad of flavor descriptions might.

..

snip

..

Those of us who enjoy wine apparently appreciate a little mystery along with our fermented grape juice. As Geoff Kruth, the master sommelier, told me, At the end of the day, were selling poetry.

The insight gleaned from the study is that, while diet and exercise play major roles in health, physical activity makes an even bigger impact on childrens weight than we previously thought, said Peter Katzmarzyk, an author of the study in the international journal Obesity. This study shows that obesity cannot be explained away by culture, class or status, and these research results reinforce the need for kids to engage in play time and other forms of physical activity each day.

..

The challenge of television and the gaming screen for American kids is one thing, but the giant study international in scope and involving children in poorer and wealthier countries showed that lack of exercise is a concern that crosses many lines of class, race or family situation. This research assessed associations between lifestyle behaviors and childhood obesity in a multinational setting, surveying both high- and low-income children.

..

Researchers collected data from more than 6,000 children between ages 9 and 11 from 12 countries, varying from Brazil to Kenya to the United Kingdom and United States. Previously, most of the data on obesity came from the wealthier countries.

..

What the text shows is, far beyond the obvious connection between lack of activity and weight, is that the temptations toward physical laziness in youth are universal enough to give pause to those in public health who want to pin the problem on one behavior peculiar to, or one particular condition in, a rich or a poor society. Or, for that matter one particular solution like turning off the television.

..

The results reinforce the importance of promoting healthy lifestyles among children as an obesity prevention strategy across different cultures and environments.

Free Fitness Iphone Apps Fail to Meet

UF Health researchers recently found that only one of 30 popular free fitness apps for iPhones meets the majority of guidelines for physical activity from the American College of Sports Medicine, the worlds largest sports medicine and exercise science organization. The findings were published this month in the Journal of Medical Internet Research.

..

When compared to the guidelines for aerobic exercise, strength or resistance, and flexibility, the top-scoring app was the Sworkit Lite Personal Workout Trainer App with 9.01 out of a possible 14 points. Each app was scored across those three categories, examining to what extent they adhered to the specific American College of Sports Medicine guidelines, including parameters for safety, warm-ups, cool-downs, stretching, intensity, frequency and progression.

..

While more than half the apps included some of the recommendations for aerobic exercise and 90 percent met at least one criterion for strength and resistance, two-thirds of the apps did not meet any of the flexibility criteria.

..

While apps have great potential to give more people access to workouts that could help them achieve a healthy weight and fitness level, we found that the vast majority of apps are not as safe as they could be and do not give users the type of well-rounded workouts known to be most effective, said Franis Modave, Ph.D., associate professor in the UF department of health outcomes and policy and lead author of the study.

..

Ultimately, only Sworkit Lite Personal Workout Trainer met more than half of the criteria. Three apps met more than half the criteria in the aerobic category: Sworkit Lite Personal Workout Trainer, C25K 5K Trainer Free and Running for Weight Loss. Four apps earned half the possible points in the strength or resistance category: Sworkit Lite Personal Workout Trainer, Ultimate Fitness Free, JEFIT Workout and StrongLifts 5X5. Ultimate Fitness Free was no longer available on the App Store at the time of this release. No app scored above 50 percent in the flexibility category.

..

Several of the apps contained high-quality content in one of the three categories, but almost none of them had high-quality content in all of them, especially flexibility said Heather Vincent, Ph.D., FACSM, assistant professor in the department of orthopaedics and rehabilitation in the UF College of Medicine. This is a problem because flexibility is important for good exercise form, relaxation and cool-down.

The Head of the European Union Delegation to Liberia, Tiina Intelmann, has pledged the EU's support in improving urban agriculture to strengthen food security in the country.

..

She noted that the EU is in Liberia to help improve the livelihood of the Liberian people through several activities, including agriculture, and noted that it was critical for Liberians to produce rice, rather than depend on imports from other countries.

..

..

She indicated that the EU will support the urban agriculture project for seven years to help ensure that Liberia attains food security, and challenged Liberians to get actively involved in local food production.
