How to identify VPN protocols in OS X | Macworld
“When you first set up a VPN connection by opening the Network preference, clicking the plus (+) button near the bottom-left corner of the window, choosing VPN from the Interface pop-up menu, and selecting the kind of protocol you’ll use from the VPN Type menu, the Service Name field will display the protocol in parentheses—VPN (L2TP), for example. Of course, if you change that service name (as most people would) you lose the broad hint OS X provides. Fortunately, there’s another way.

“The three kinds of connections display different options. For an L2TP connection you’ll see entries for Configuration, Server Address, and Account Name as seen here.”

Inside Bamboo Bicycles Beijing | SmartBeijing
A first look at the new social startup, fresh off Kickstarting 15 grand into the bank. The next level of Beijing hutong eco-chic...

By Josh Feola APR 29, 2014 ACTIVITIES

If you live in Beijing you might have seen that Bamboo Bicycles kickstarter floating around. If not, the concept is pretty self-explanatory. Bicycles made of bamboo. In Beijing.

Bamboo Bicycles Beijing is the brainchild of David Chin-Fei Wang, a Boston transplant who's been living in China for six years. After graduating university, he got a Fulbright grant to do a year-long anthropological research project on sports and nationalism in contemporary Chinese culture. After that he ran a bar in Xi'an called Oscar's. That lost money pretty efficiently. Faced with going back to the US for grad school or staying on, David carved a position for himself at China Youthology, a Beijing-based startup conducting market research on emerging trends among... yeah, Chinese youth. Again, David focused on sports, albeit broadly construed. He recently pulled an all-nighter at a wang ba studying World of Warcraft culture. That gets raw apparently.

John Rickford, Sharese King: Full Interview on "Race, Dialect Prejudice, and Literacy in the Zimmerman Trial and Beyond" | Stanford Center for Opportunity Policy in Education
"The testimony of Rachel Jeantel, close friend of Trayvon Martin and the prosecution's star witness in the trial of George Zimmerman, was the subject of considerable public commentary in the summer of 2013. Social media pilloried her for her "slurred" or "ungrammatical" speech and described her as stupid and ignorant.

But as Stanford professor John Rickford and second-year linguistics graduate student Sharese King show from analyses of her use of zero copula, absence of third singular present, possessive, and plural --s, and other features, she follows the systematic grammar of African American Vernacular English (AAVE) quite faithfully.

Rickford and King discuss the evidence of Jeantel's limited literacy that emerged during the trial, and the poor reading performance of African American students at her school, Miami Norland, which did not come to public attention. They ask about the extent to which speakers of African American Vernacular English and other dialects are misunderstood, disbelieved, or otherwise unfairly evaluated in courts, schools, and other settings.

This interview followed the SCOPE Brown Bag Lecture: "Race, Dialect Prejudice, and Literacy in the Zimmerman Trial and Beyond" on February 10, 2014."

Stanford linguist: prejudice toward African American dialect can result in unfair rulings
"Linguistics professor John R. Rickford contends justice was not served in the Trayvon Martin shooting, in part because testimony in the African American vernacular was discredited."

Betreft: hulpkas: mutualiteit of niet

Geachte heer,

U vroeg ons of de Hulpkas voor Ziekte- en Invaliditeitsverzekering effectief een ziekenfonds is of gelijkgesteld wordt met een ziekenfonds.

Luidens artikel 2 van de wet betreffende de verplichte verzekering voor geneeskundige verzorging en uitkeringen, gecoördineerd op 14 juli 1994, wordt verstaan:

g) onder “ziekenfonds”, een ziekenfonds zoals bepaald in artikel 2, § 1, van de wet van 6 augustus 1990 betreffende de ziekenfondsen en de landsbonden van ziekenfondsen;

h) onder “landsbond”, een landsbond zoals bepaald in artikel 6 van voornoemde wet van 6 augustus 1990;

i) onder “verzekeringsinstelling”: een landsbond, de Hulpkas voor Ziekte- en Invaliditeitsverzekering en de Kas der geneeskundige verzorging van de Nationale Maatschappij der Belgische Spoorwegen;

De Hulpkas voor Ziekte- en Invaliditeitsverzekering is een openbare instelling met rechtspersoonlijkheid die werkt door bemiddeling van gewestelijke diensten (artikel 5 van de gecoördineerde wet). Haar organisatie en werkingsregelen zijn geregeld in de gecoördineerde wet van 14 juli 1994 en in het koninklijk besluit van 14 februari 1966 tot vaststelling van de samenstelling van het Beheerscomité, de organisatie en de werkingsregelen van de Hulpkas voor ziekte- en invaliditeitsverzekering. Ze heeft net als de ziekenfondsen tot taak mee te werken aan de uitvoering van de verplichte verzekering voor geneeskundige verzorging en uitkeringen. De rechthebbenden zijn vrij om zich in te schrijven bij een ziekenfonds of een gewestelijke dienst van de Hulpkas voor ziekte- en invaliditeitsverzekering. Het verschil met de ziekenfondsen is dat de Hulpkas iedere rechthebbende moet inschrijven die erom verzoekt en dat ze uitsluitend het systeem van de verplichte verzekering toepast.

Met de meeste hoogachting,

How to remember the IPA vowel chart - All Things Linguistic
(Among some tips on learning the IPA vowels—)
“You can use the classic sentence ‘Who would know aught of art, must learn, act, then take his ease’, which has the advantage of having the sounds approximately in order from back high, to low, to front high, with some muddiness around the central vowels. Unfortunately, it has some words that aren’t terribly common (aught), might not be pronounced with the right vowel in your dialect (art, if you have a rhotic accent), and ignores diphthongs.”
