Forget hypercars, GTE can save the WEC
There's a promising amount of interest in the WEC's new 'hypercar' rules - but why create a whole new concept when the solution to its top class's current malaise is already on the grid?

Hamilton sends a message to Vettel
Lewis Hamilton oozed confidence on Friday at Suzuka. A harmless radio message, expressing his serenity in the car, hints at just how difficult Ferrari and Sebastian Vettel will find it to topple the Mercedes driver in Japan

Marina Warner reviews ‘This Little Art’ by Kate Briggs, ‘Translation as Transhumance’ by Mireille Gansel, translated by Ros Schwartz, ‘Sympathy for the Traitor’ by Mark Polizzotti, ‘The 100 Best Novels in Translation’ edited by Boyd Tonkin
The contest between Augustinian scrupulous faithfulness and Hieronymite wilful nudging was very helpfully glossed by Dryden when he identified three different levels of translation: the first, hewing close to the original, he confusingly called ‘metaphrase’; the second ‘translation with latitude’, which he again confusingly called ‘paraphrase’; and the third and most illuminating ‘imitation, where the translator (if he has not now lost that name) assumes the liberty not only to vary from the words and sense, but to forsake them both as he sees occasion; and taking only some general hints from the original, to run division on the ground-work as he pleases.’ This ‘liberty’ may verge on travesty, but it catches the ideal aims as set out by Polizzotti, when he writes that ‘language is not all about designation.’ ‘Its real meanings hover in the spaces between utterances, in the movement generated by the particular arrangements of words, associations and hidden references. This is what literature does, in the best of cases. And it’s what translation can do as well.’ He contrasts the revered translator Richard Howard’s version of a 1930 love poem by Paul Eluard with Beckett’s rendering – and there is no doubt that Beckett’s unpunctuated cascando, composed in the heraldic mode of courtly love, and signed ‘Thine in flames’ communicates the French original’s outpouring far beyond Howard’s more accurate version. [...]

For Clive Scott, the new proximities and the new estrangements wrought by global flows of people, goods, finance, communications – have given literary translators a more urgent part to play than ever before. It is among poorer, smaller groups that multilingualism is now common; it is speakers of smaller languages (Dutch, German) who have historically made huge efforts to translate. It is a paradox that many translators into English are joining the struggle to keep alive cultural and linguistic diversity, working from Korean, Frisian, Breton, Maltese, Icelandic, Sardo as well as from Spanish, Chinese, Arabic and the other ‘big’ languages. But Polizzotti quite rightly sounds a note of warning about upholding the moral good of translation, instrumentalising its political effects and treating writers as mouthpieces for their cultures. He warns that ‘minority language literatures … can become so many corporate acquisitions’ and that ‘translation becomes both the bridge linking civilisations and the measure – even an aggravator – of the gulf separating them.’ However, to take myself as an example, most of what I know about many places, their people and their history comes from poetry and fiction in translation – from Arthur Waley’s rendering of Chinese when I was young to László Krasznahorkai, more recently, in the versions of George Szirtes and Ottilie Mulzet, which read enthrallingly in English, though needless to say I have no way of knowing what the originals are like.

Stop Using Select Menus for Known User Input
Instead selecting from a large amount of options, they’re selecting from a minimal amount of options. The more they type the less options appear, making it even quicker to find and select their option. The number of options displayed to the user is reduced, which also reduces the error rate.

This usability violation of select menus is often found on fields involving time or place input. Country and state fields are big culprits as well as day and month fields. Users know their input for these fields and shouldn’t have to waste time scanning irrelevant options.

Make it quick and easy for users to fill out your form by using autocomplete fields instead of select menus for known input. It’s much like going to a familiar restaurant. If you already know what food you want to order, reading the menu is a waste time.

Ohio State to prepare students a career in esports — Quartz at Work
This university is preparing its students for a career in… eSports? October 5, 2018 at 08:59AM https://ift.tt/2QwEFgh

Video games used to be what we played when we didn’t want to think about school. Now they could be homework.

A new program from Ohio State University hopes to prepare students for a career in eSports, the burgeoning industry of competitive gaming. Like any industry, preparing for a career in eSports will require an interdisciplinary education. The school is offering courses on eSports coaching, business management, marketing, and game development in addition to building a state-of-the-art eSports arena.

“[The arena] will include over 80 seats with computer, console and virtual reality systems, as well as a broadcast booth for students interested in shoutcasting,” says Deborah M. Grzybowski, co-director of the game studies and esports curriculum.

The growth of the industry should assuage doubts from parents hoping their kids will leave school with marketable skills. eSports are expected to generate nearly $1 billion in revenue globally this year. As audiences expand around the world, the need for professionals with skills to build out this nascent industry will certainly follow suit.

Matt&Dan's new Daniel Avery video is a 48 minute chill-out classic
The deadly duo say that the concept arrived after an experiment with sound waves. “We began to ask ourselves how we could evolve the process of how we recorded the album cover further and bring this new world to life unlike the static images we have captured before,” say Matt&Dan. “This time we imported the mix into Ableton and used an Oscilloscope to view the waveforms. We then added various plug-ins which let us manipulate the frequencies which gave us a live visual representation in a totally new way to how we have created previous artworks.”
