OT - protect your cell phone

Lucinda Shastid
 

From the NYT this morning: Don't charge your phone by using that random cable found at an airport charging station or docking into that hotel USB port.

"Juice jacking happens when unsuspecting users plug their electronic devices into USB ports or use USB cables that have been loaded with malware.

The malware then infects the devices, giving hackers a way in. They can then read and export your data, including your passwords, and even lock up the gadgets, making them unusable.

[The specialist] cautioned against using USB cables found already plugged into charging stations or even given away as promotional gifts.

“You can easily brand these things so you can make it look like any other cable,” he said, adding, “When people see it, they don’t really think or expect it to be malicious in any way.”

Other ways to protect yourself include carrying your own charging wires, only charging directly from an electrical outlet and using portable batteries that were bought from known vendors, Mr. Arsene said."

I'm sure most of us are already careful about malware, but I hadn't heard of this angle before.

Its a cute cartoon. Read the comments. One made the comment along the line - are there just males or females.

Where the video is likely to be spot on is when it describes physical differences with male and female brains. No so much with "softer" comparisons that one could easily dispute.

Add to the site that Shelley recommended.  Borrow some of the titles from your library. That way you can see if you like one book over another. 
The New Knitting Stitch Library  - Lesley Stanfield
Kaffe Fassett's Pattern LIbrary - primarily color patterns, but could be converted to knit purl patterns
Sequence Knitting - 
Mon Tricot 900 Stitch Patterns (mentioned as hard to find). It is a paperback and therefore quite portable
Knit Stitch Guide - Rita Weiss  - small and compact

Nicki Epstein has several books on edging - 

I recommend any of Ann Budd's books on knitting. Take one of her basic patterns based on calculations and add a pattern to it. All are published by Interweave Press.

Today's Meeting

Lucinda Shastid
 

It was great!  A lot of people, a lot of laughter, a lot of conversation.

Catherine showed some yarn she spun, and worked on a lovely baby sweater with interesting construction.

Jane tried Teresa's miniSpinner, then continued with some yellow/green yarn on her wheel.  (The roving seemed similar to Annie's favorite color name: Monkey Farts.)

Charlene had two socks: toe-up, two-at-a-time, magic loop.  This sparked a short discussion of favorite ways to knit socks.

Teresa flicked long luxurious Romney locks to be drum carded later.

Shelley spun some gold roving, instead of her when-will-it-ever-be-done brown.

Edie, who finally was able to come join us again, was knitting.

Joan wore a new sweater.  The two yarns were a yin/yang pair: one was two plies of color A and one ply of color B, the other was one A and two B.  She also was knitting a second sweater in the same pattern.

Lucinda finally spun again, very intense colors in a hand-painted roving - her hand tremor has diminished.

Discussion topics included

the new tables and chairs in the classroom (no need to worry about whether you'll get a well-padded chair now),

apps for knitting: highlighting directions row by row, charts, row counters, etc.,

graphs in general,

family events

health

Ted Talk on male/female brains

NYT on multilingual babies.


Off topic but not political

At the meeting today, several of us had read an article in the NY TImes Do babies cry in different languages. We felt others would be interested.

I mentioned a book that I had read about aging. Again others were interested.
Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End  by Antul Gawande

Re: Hilltop Hanover schedule

Hi, Kay.  We are meeting only on Saturdays now - first and third Saturdays.

I just looked at your profile on https://groups.io/g/HanoverSpinKnit/ and saw that you only receive special notifications.  You may want to switch to some other option so you get messages, including the twice-monthly notification of where and when we meet.

We had a small meeting yesterday - I wish you'd been there <grin>!

Sorry we missed you,

Lucinda

Subject: [HanoverSpinKnit] Group email policy

To refresh everyone’s memories, here is the relevant part of theemail that sums up the group policy on emails to the group (now isn’t that a circular statement):


So, the poll on email preferences was out for a couple of weeks, and the solid majority voted for no change. Please just include either “OT - political” or “Warning - political” in the subject line of posts that fall into that category. And please continue to keep the subject lines descriptive; no “Isn’t this cool?” or “I didn’t know this!”, but rather or “Article: Llama spit cures the common cold” or “Gorgeous new pattern for elbow warmers.”


The post is #6341 if anyone wants to refer to it or read the discussion leading up to the vote.

To keep things in perspective, here is a breakdown of the posts in the year leading up to that vote—I don’t have the time to track this past year, but it’s probably similar. “Political” posts were roughly 5% of the total. Group rules specify that they have to be clearly marked in the subject line, which enables everyone to delete them without even opening, should they so choose.
