Guantanamo Prosecution Continuing Despite Virtually No Defense Counsel

In Guantanamo, the team of attorneys who were the defense team for Abd al-Rahim al-Nashiri resigned when it was discovered that their lawyer-client conversations were not necessarily confidential. Actually, one member of the defense team stayed. He is Navy Lt. Alaric Piette, who with only six years of experience and no experience in a capital case, is woefully underqualified to be the sole defense attorney. Military tribunal rules require a defense attorney with capital case experience in all capital cases. Yet, the case is proceeding. Prosecuting attorneys are entering evidence, even though no jury has been selected. Lt. Piette's stance now is to say nothing in court except to respond to any requests from the judge with "Defense takes no position other than to object to these proceedings continuing without learned counsel."

The judge has fruitlessly attempted to order and coerce the defense team to return to court.

If this isn't set right, no one in the world will have any respect for any judgement from this court.

Also Chicago, Kodachrome, 1987.
This is probably the last time I saw this sign on the Allerton Hotel. I had always wondered if the Tip-Top-Tap was still a going concern or was it just too expensive to take down those letters. But that was before the internet. Now I can find out without having to actually go to Chicago and ride an elevator to the top. The Tip-Top-Tap opened in the 1920s and closed in 1961. It is used now as a ballroom or meeting room for private parties, but the bar is gone.

When I lived in South Boston in the early '80s, I worked downtown at 100 Summer Street, so most mornings I would walk to work (a couple miles) rather than suffer the crowded bus. This was along the way and almost always offered a photogenic view. But it never changed much, either. Sometimes a ship would tie up and stay for more than a year.

Devil's Hole Pupfish In The News Again

The recent 7.9 quake in the Gulf of Alaska caused serious sloshing in Devil's Hole, which is home to 114 pupfish in Nevada, 1,800 miles away. That sloshing has somehow trigger out-of-season spawning among the pupfish. The same thing happened in 2012 after a 7.3 quake in Oaxaca, Mexico.

Lost Satellite Found

IMAGE was a satellite launched in 2000 that suddenly stoped broadcasting in 2005. NASA declared it dead after 2007. They had waited that long to see if the batteries would drain which would trigger a reset that might make everything right again.

Then in January 2018, amateur radio astronomer Scott Tilley quite accidentally found IMAGE happily broadcasting away. They think the battery-drain-triggered reset happened sometime later than 2007.

Fitness Trackers

Here’s the news story about Strava posting a “global heat map” of fitness tracker usage. The news concerns what it reveals about military bases, but I looked at the Strava heat map to see if it told me anything about Desert Hot Springs.

It seems to me that someone (or ones) in Mission Lakes Country Club are doing a lot of exercising. Some of the more heavily used routes around DHS are where cyclists ride, including the upcoming Tour De Palm Springs.

Apple Store Experience

One person who views her Apple Store experience as chaotic.

Another person responds saying the situation she described was actually good customer service.

Part of the initial confusion is that even though she is an Apple customer she hasn't figured out that the stores (or, all the Apple stores I've been to) have an employee near the front door who handles triage. The first time I encountered that I thought it was pretty bad service too, because what I saw was an employee standing there doing nothing, who offered to help me, but then wouldn't help me but sent me to another employee. Why they don't give that employee a hat saying "Triage" or something everyone could understand, I just don't know.

As for where to line up for a cash register?! I want to ask how old that author is and has she ever been in an Apple Store before. The customer stands still. The Apple Store will make an employee appear magically at your side and if you are really integrated into Apple, you won't even have to pull out your credit card. The great borg already knows it. I don't know what happens if you want to pay in cash. I've never seen that in an Apple Store. Maybe a Federal Reserve Employee will appear next to you to make sure all your bills are clean and crisp.

I got the glass replaced on my 6S Plus once. I set up an appointment online. Went in. Triage guy sent me to hang out around the Genius Bar. Someone called my name. Took my phone. I don't know how long I waited, but not very long at all. The Genius brought my phone back to me, fixed. I would expect that to go less smoothly if I went into a busy Manhattan store with no appointment.

The one serious bitch I ever had with the La Quinta Apple Store was when I bought online (probably my Mini) and had my purchase sent to the store for pick up. The instructions I got from Apple were to show them a printout which identified me and my purchase. I think I went through three employees before one understood what I was asking for. The second time I did that, it went flawlessly, so maybe somebody got some training in the interim.

Desert Hot Springs City Council - January 16, 2018

These are some of what I think are the important bits of the January 16, 2018, meeting of the Desert Hot Springs City Council.


Fully Staffed Police Department

Five new police officers were sworn in. Chief Mondary said the police department is fully staffed. I think the definition of fully staffed is "up to the limit authorized by the City Council," because we all know our PD has never been staffed up the level we really need.


AIPP Cut To 0.25% In Industrial Zone

Some people didn't like that the AIPP rules were being assessed fairly for all kinds of property. That is, the value of the art or the amount of the in-lieu fee in effect since the program was approved in 2009 has been 0.5% of valuation for residential property and 0.75% of valuation for commercial and industrial properties.

The proposal was to eliminate the choice of putting a piece of art on site in the industrial zone. Development in the industrial zone would have to pay the in-lieu fee. I am not sure who didn't like it that the art paid for by the industrial developers would be displayed on the property developed. I didn't hear any of the City Council members express an objection to that.

This proposal went to the Planning Commission first, and they didn't like it. I could explain just why the Planning Commission didn't like it if the city's damn website would actually play the audio of that meeting, but it doesn't and they don't upload the audio to Youtube or any of the other several easy, reliable websites that actually play recorded audio flawlessly.

The choice before the City Council seemed to be to follow the Planning Commission's recommendation (leave things unchanged) or to re-insert the language taking the choice away from industrial developers. So imagine our surprise when Mr. McKee suddenly proposed to drop the rate for industrial development from 0.75% to 0.25%! Even more surprising was that Russell Betts immediately agreed to it! Ever since this program was approved, any mention of it would trigger a story-telling by Mr. Betts, in which story he would cast himself as the lonely white knight standing against everybody else who hates art. In reality, support for the AIPP program was widespread and the only discussion was the rates. The proposed rate was an even 1%, I believe, and Mr. Betts will tell you a story about how he had to fight to keep it as high as 0.75%. But now that it is 2018, he easily agreed to a two-thirds reduction in the rate.

Yvonne Parks had said she wouldn't vote for an ordinance that retained the 0.75% rate because she thought it was too high. But when the vote came, she still voted against it, even though the rate had been lowered to 0.25%. The vote was 4-1.

Some of the cannabis developers got up and complained about the surprising costs they've run into, and seemed to think this AIPP was something recently concocted to get more money out of them. In reality, the reason the cannabis developers are running into these expensive surprises is that many of them don't do sufficient due diligence (probably due to lack of experience in real estate) to find out all the expenses before they commit themselves. One cannabis developer argued that since he was having to build a road and put in underground infrastructure he ought to be excused from paying the AIPP. Again it's probably due to inexperience in real estate, but he didn't realize every developer is responsible for all that work and all those expenses. The city didn't come up with any new ideas to get in the way of cannabis development. Quite the contrary, they've now given them a two-thirds fee reduction.

In case you thought that the super-high price of land in our industrial zone would offset this rate cut, the cost of land is not included in the valuation against which the fee is assessed. IOW, it is a percentage of the value of the building only. Once you've removed the land cost, the value of the buildings will be whatever the usual value of such buildings are. The reduction in this fee is, therefore, a genuine cut to the amount of money that we would have expected to come into our AIPP fund.

Mr. McKee said he intended this to be temporary, and the council has asked that the ordinance be brought back before them in about 6 weeks to re-examine the rates. Mr. Betts said he didn't think it needed to be brought back; he was happy with the new 0.25% rate.


Resolution Setting Forth Certain Regulations Pertaining to Dispensaries

This item was removed from the agenda to be brought back at a later meeting. The proposed text in this agenda packet would have permitted a marijuana dispensary to change location, but they would still have to get a new CUP and any other of the usual necessary paperwork. The city started with 19 people who were allowed to seek a CUP and open a dispensary. Three of those people withdrew, leaving 16. Eight of those people have, indeed, opened dispensaries in town. The remaining eight still have all their rights intact, but the resolution would have specified that the right to apply for a CUP and open a dispensary is NOT transferable. The resolution also would have set the limit for cannabis dispensaries in the city at 16.

Here is a handy table provided in the agenda packet which you can use to keep track of the players. Click it for a bigger version.

New Library

Riverside County has proposed to build a completely new library on the vacant land between Aqua Soleil and the new county building at Park Lane and Palm Drive, entirely at County expense. The current library is 3,500 s.f. The proposed library would be 15,000 s.f.

When the current library opened in 1972 the population of the city was less than 3,000 and half of it was senior citizens. The official population is 9 times greater now, and it's 40% kids 18 and under.

This item simply authorizes city staff to continue to work with the county on this. After construction of the new library the old library will be converted to a broom closet, but it won't be big enough to let everybody keep their brooms there.

CES 2018

Complaint (4267)
This was supposed to be a display of a heavy lifting drone
, but instead they had to complain about the help.

HP AMP (4367)
I want to know what is the innovative advantage to having these features combined in one machine?
IOW, why put speakers on a scanner/printer? Here's the description from the display:

HP AMP is the first printer designed to enable seamless print and scan functions plus the ability to stream audio directly from a smartphone or tablet. The custom HP speakers with clear voice and exceptional 360° sound are backed by world class technology and HP's leadership in the print industry.

Foreo Exhibit (4398)
This exhibit showed some Burning Man influence, IMO
. The real warning signs about what we are supposed to realize is fictional. Or is it? Bit of a risk, maybe, with people coming from all over the world.

IBM Quantum Computer (1605)
IBM had this on display and said it is a quantum computer!
I certainly have no basis to doubt them. Until I saw this, I couldn't have said for sure if quantum computers actually existed as a physical reality or if they were still virtual while they worked out the details.

Las Vegas Monorail tracks at MGM Grand (4258)
Las Vegas Monorail tracks at MGM Grand
. This was my first time using the monorail. The train cars are pretty much the same as mass transit rail cars in any city, but I thought it was pretty interesting that in the city known for bright lights, flashiness and surprising architecture, the subway stations are very plain and functional looking. It's probably a good model for any city that wants to keep expenses down, but taxpayers seem to like beautiful train stations.

Mercedes at CES (4304)

Nagra HD Preamp (4358)
The description of this preamp from Nagra doesn't give me any clue why it got an innovation award
:

High End Audio preamplifier Designed to complement our flagship line of products called HD, for high definition. The Nagra HD PREAMP offers outstanding performance in terms of specifications as well as listening pleasure.

Sounds like more of the incremental improvement in audio that's been going on since Edison recorded "Mary Had A Little Lamb."

Nvidia VW Bus (4316)
I've no clue why this VW Bus was at the Nvidia exhibit
. It was after 6 PM when I saw it, and the convention was technically closed for the day, so no Nvidia people were around to clue us in.

OLED TV For Art (4277)
I really like these things
, but ya know what's got to happen? Cropping. The display looks like the relatively standard 16:9 aspect ratio, and not every master through the ages made paintings to that exact ratio. You will be given the choice of cropping or letter boxing, and I am sure most people will crop because it just looks neater. Below, for example, is the Mona Lisa cropped to a 16:9 ratio. I made a guess as to where Leonardo would have chopped off her elbows to do this.
Cropped Mona Lisa

Oh no, it just occurred to me that a lot of people will do the same thing they do with their TVs: ignore the aspect ratio and cram the whole image into 16:9 regardless. Below is the Mona Lisa abused like that:
Stretched Mona Lisa

Panasonic Radio (4295)
An early Matsushita radio
that was part of an exhibit of the history of Matsushita/Panasonic.

Polaroid Exhibit at CES (1598)

Rem-Fit Be Better In Bed (4410)
Part of the Rem-Fit Be Better In Bed exhibit
.

Sitael S.p.A. (4326)
"Magnetic Assisted Tap" is what they call this electric bike which won an innovation award
.

MAT connects online-bike and smartphone wirelessly. Its unique magnetic technology provides total vehicle control in one gesture. Edquipped with lock, security cable and handlebar remote control, MAT recognizes the user, disables the GPS anti-theft and enhances the riding experience.

Smacircle S1 (4322)
Smarcircle S1 folding electric bike, an innovation award winner
.

Smarcircle S1, the world's most compact and lightweight ebike. Weighing only 15.4 lbs, carbon fiber S1 can be folded in five simple steps into a small backpack and carried wherever and whenever. Feature-rich with iOS and Android apps, SMarcircle S1 is ideal for the connected commuter.

I thought it was a little odd that through all of CES in these sort of public descriptions of anything, they used imperial measurements, even though you know every single thing at CES has metric dimensions and every single attendee understands the metric system. Are they that concerned that some American (or Liberian or Burmese) yokel will wander in and be confused?

Oh my, I didn't know the term had been changed to "United States customary units," seemingly absolving the British Empire of blame.

Wi Surf (4343)
The Wi Surf (innovation award winner), which I found interesting for its plain exterior coupled with high claims
:

Wi Surf (Wireless Surface) is the world's first customizable and wireless modular induction charger and power supply station. It allows users to supply any device with direct current up to 60 W (per unit) and to remove 90% of cables and chargers from house, office and workshop.

Emphasis added by me. The percentage of cables I have that serve power is way blow 50%. So if this thing can get rid of 100% of chargers, how many cables does it need also to get rid of in order to make that 90% claim accurate, considering that everyone has way more cables than chargers?

Byton Dashboard Display (4313)
The dashboard display in a Byton
, which is a Chinese knock-off of a Tesla. I think that down lower, mostly out of sight are some elements of a classic, physical dashboard. There's got to be some place for an interface within easy reach of the driver. I don't think they're relying solely on voice commands.

Bluetooth Fanny Pack (4389)
A fuzzy fanny pack with stereo Bluetooth speakers
. This is aimed right at the sissy teenyboppers (of any gender) of the world. If they had shown one in pink...

Belkin Exhibit at CES (1589)
This was at an exhibit for what looked to me like a very capital intensive system of products to detect leaks, assure cleanliness, and avoid waste of water in a residence or business
.

Cubic Grid of Lights
This is a video.

Sony Display at CES
The huge display at the Sony exhibit
. It's a video, so click on it.
