Your Apps Know Where You Were Last Night, and They’re Not Keeping It Secret - The New York Times
Businesses say their interest is in the patterns, not the identities, that the data reveals about consumers. They note that the information apps collect is tied not to someone’s name or phone number but to a unique ID. But those with access to the raw data — including employees or clients — could still identify a person without consent. They could follow someone they knew, by pinpointing a phone that regularly spent time at that person’s home address. Or, working in reverse, they could attach a name to an anonymous dot, by seeing where the device spent nights and using public records to figure out who lived there.

The mobile location industry began as a way to customize apps and target ads for nearby businesses, but it has morphed into a data collection and analysis machine.

经济观察网-脆弱的权力平衡:明治宪法体制的进步与危险-经济观察网-专业财经新闻网站
同为东方国家,由于文化传统、社会结构和地缘政治等多个方面的差异,中日两国在走向现代化的过程中,却呈现出巨大的差别。这种情况的缘由固然是多方面的,但其中的一个重要维度便是中日两国在面对西方列强冲击下的有关国家构想的筹划,政治与宪制方面的国家构想从某种意义上决定着这两个国家的未来。

在明治宪法中集中展现了一种关于日本国的具有现代性意义的国家构想,也正是从这个意义上,可以说明治宪法是一部开启了现代日本国家之舟的现代性宪法。

日本的国家构想之路曲曲折折,向我们揭示出任何一个民族在制宪建国之际都会面临的一个根本性问题,那就是如何处理各自国家的主体性与置身世界的普遍性两者之间的关系问题。

Toolkit Produced for Optimizing Floating Renewables Devices
The toolkit consists of two main components: Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) using Proteus open-source software and Multi-Body Dynamics (MBD) using the Chrono open-source solver. Both models have been validated separately and together. Using a CFD model early in development can reduce costs in design optimization by performing full-scale simulations under realistic sea states, before performing laboratory tests which may be subject to practical limitations.

Unleashing the Power of OpenFOAM for CFD
Let’s dive down into a more technical view. For all its benefits, OpenFOAM is known to have challenging strong- and weak-scaling behaviour, according to a paper authored by Ravi Ojha from Tata Consultancy Services and Christoforos Hadjigeorgiou from the University of Cambridge. [5] To see if they could overcome this challenge, this research duo put OpenFOAM to the test on a hardware platform based on the Intel® Xeon Phi™ processor.

Double location et taxe d'habitation - Immobilier - Forums divers
Re les gens,
Un an plus tard, la taxe d'habitation de notre précédent appart nous est donc tomber droit sur la tronche.
On a donc fait une demande aux impots avec en PJ la facture de résiliation d'EDF (daté du 20 Décembre), et la facture de résiliation de l'eau (datée à la même date).
Bilan, on est passé en commission, et les impôts vont nous rembourser.

Rien de spécialement ouf hein, mais juste pour dire que c'est passé, donc merci à vous. Et pour ceux qui serait dans le même cas que nous donc, résilisation EDF et l'eau a donc fait foi

Merci !

Comment éviter la taxe d'habitation sur un local vide ?
Pour répondre à votre question, comment justifier du fait qu'un local soit inhabitable ? La preuve peut ici être apportée par tous moyens. Il peut s'agir d'une facture de gaz ou d'électricité justifiant d'une absence de consommation de gaz ou d'électricité. Il peut également s'agir d'un témoignage de personnes vous ayant aidée à déménager, afin de laisser supposer que le local est vide de meubles, suite à ce déménagement. Il est également possible à défaut de facture de faire appel à un huissier afin que celui-ci vienne constater que le local est vide de meubles. Il ne vous suffira alors qu'à envoyer cet élément de preuve à votre Centre des impôts.

A history of China in 8m objects - Chaguan

the Cultural Revolution, the decade after 1966 when Mao Zedong unleashed terror on his own country, pitting neighbour against neighbour, students against teachers, children against parents and Red Guard mobs against officials whom Mao despised. More than a million lives were lost, and many more ruined. Centuries-old temples and libraries were smashed to so much rubble and firewood.

Other exhibits recall hardships. One museum in Anren is devoted to the nearly 18m urban youngsters who were banished to the countryside for years of ploughing, hauling manure and digging ditches instead of being educated.

Drawing the wrong lessons about the past can prompt charges of “historical nihilism”, an offence that sees museums punished and careers blighted.

PPE: l'éolien en mer "sabordé", selon France Énergie éolienne
Ils ont promis un triplement de l'éolien terrestre d'ici 2030. Concernant l'éolien en mer, le premier parc sera mis en service au large de Saint-Nazaire durant le quinquennat "et nous lancerons quatre nouveaux appels d'offres", a indiqué Emmanuel Macron. L'exécutif vise ainsi jusqu'à 35,6 gigawatts (GW) de capacités dans l'éolien terrestre en 2028 et jusqu'à 5,2 GW en mer. France énergie éolienne estime que le déploiement de l'éolien en mer est ainsi "sabordé". "Avec des objectifs réduits de moitié par rapport aux recommandations de la filière, le gouvernement renonce au potentiel énergétique et industriel de cette énergie", estiment les professionnels.

How to Control Your Citizens: Opportunity. Nationalism. Fear. - The New York Times
“Today you have the largest bureaucracy in history, with a capacity to intrude in anything,” said William C. Kirby, a professor of China studies at Harvard. “It isn’t just ideology. There are now enormous numbers of interest groups that don’t like competition.”

For guidance, Mr. Ni often looks to Jack Ma, the executive chairman of Alibaba, who is China’s richest man and a cultlike figure among many businessmen. Mr. Ni is currently enrolled in a business school program that Mr. Ma established to cultivate China’s next generation of entrepreneurs.

Over the years, Mr. Ma has spoken publicly about the push-pull relationship between private companies and the government, though there is one piece of his advice for entrepreneurs that Mr. Ni seems to have especially taken to heart: “Fall in love. But don’t marry.”

part of it was something deeper: a desire to help the country catch up with the West and to reconnect with her Chinese roots.

Exposed to liberal democracy, Ms. Hua’s generation was supposed to be the one that demanded it at home. Middle-class Chinese students poured into universities in the United States and Europe — then seen as the most promising path to wealth and prestige — and some Western analysts predicted that they would return to China as a force for political change.

Like many other middle-class parents, Ms. Hua worries about repression and rampant materialism in Chinese society. Yet many of these parents say they want their children to see themselves as Chinese above all else — to understand China’s roots as an agrarian society and to have a sense of pride in the perseverance of the Chinese people through decades of poverty and strife.

Even as some analysts argue that China’s success has more to do with the resilience of its people than the Communist Party and its policies, leaders have been adept at shaping a politicized nationalism that reinforces the primacy of the party — and defends the authoritarian model as the best bulwark against chaos.

“Chinese nationalism binds the people with the state, not to each other,” said Minxin Pei, a professor of government at Claremont McKenna College.

What Happens When a Bad-Tempered, Distractible Doofus Runs an Empire? | The New Yorker

About a decade ago, I published “George, Nicholas and Wilhelm: Three Royal Cousins and the Road to World War I,” a book that was, in part, about Kaiser Wilhelm, who is probably best known for being Queen Victoria’s first grandchild and for leading Germany into the First World War. Ever since Donald Trump started campaigning for President, the Kaiser has once again been on my mind—his personal failings, and the global fallout they led to.

Wilhelm’s touchiness, his unpredictability, his need to be acknowledged: these things struck a chord with elements in Germany, which was in a kind of adolescent spasm—quick to perceive slights, excited by the idea of flexing its muscles, filled with a sense of entitlement.
