JUST FOR INSTANCE

24 Jun

Two weeks ago I had a talk with one of my well acquaintance about our progress of learning The English language. With my best respects to her there is a prehistory to land a final conlcusion. Preface in short story sounds like the next: She has contstantly been studying The English for four years at the university, and had had studied at the school as well. I had been started my journey of learning in the freshman year only. But as everyone knows that years aren’t saying about our experience on any language at all. I guess our published posts are.

I took my process very diligently after a few fails in the lections in public tests at the university and made a room to learn something new each day so far. I’m pretty sure that it is working on in the best sense of the word.

A week ago I ended up with the conclusion that all my best results aren’t well enough to be serious to say about my casual life in Russian language in which I’m talking either about what I’ve been done nor what I would had been done at that time in each evening to publish in a manner of weblog’s diary. And as I could say she’d been interrupted by me.

I’d say that her way of pronunciation isn’t perfect or even not so good to talk about and a little bit about her ‘way’ of describing her ideas and so on so forth. Might be it was hurtfull or something but let’s be honest without any ‘buts’ to say the things ‘as is’. She said a few words about my ‘ungrammatical’ structures of ‘thoughts’ but she had skipped a ‘tags’ had had written like: ungrammatical flow of thoughts or smth. on nikanorovalbert.wordpress.com. I’m not trying to be better than anyone to talk like this. The one thing is I would have to say about my blogs are:

I dare to say to be not fluent by explaining what I’m doing and why. The main aim isn’t this. That’s all. I have no idea about my grammatical and other stuff because of the main idea is to save my local ‘to and fro’ thoughts. This is it.

In his 1959 classic, The Sociological Imagination, the great sociologist C. Wright Mills told students of the discpline:

“As a social scientist, you have to … capture what you experience and sort it out; only in this way can you hope to use it to guide and test your reflection, and in the process shape yourself as an intellectual craftsman. But how can you do this? One answer is: you must set up a blog…
In such a blog … there is joined personal experience and professional activities, studies under way and studies planned. In this blog, you … will try to get together what you are doing intellectually and what you are experiencing as a person. here you will not be afraid to use your experience and relate it directly to various work in progress. By serving as a check on repetitious work, your blog also enables you to conserve your energy. It also encourages you to capture ‘fringe-thoughts’: various ideas which may be byproducts of everyday life, snatches of conversation overheard in the street, or, for that matter, dreams. Once noted, these may lead to more systematic thinking, as well as lend intellectual relevance to more directed experience.
…The blog also helps you build up the habit of writing. … In developing the blog, you can experiment as a writer and this, as they say, develop your powers of expression.”

Actually, he called it a ‘file’ instead of blog, but the point remains the same: becoming a professional journalist requires practice and writing is a powerful aid to reflection.

So that’s what this blog is. I write here about thoughts I have, things I’m working on, stuff I’ve read, experiences I’ve had, and so on. Whenever a thought crystalize or not in my head, I type it up and post it here. I don’t read over it, I don’t show it to anyone, and I dont’t edit it – I just post it. I’m like Google in the fisrt years. All posts are beta or even alpha ‘analogs’ of Google’s programs has been uploaded on the internet for free to everyone with the word ‘beta’.

I don’t consider this writing, I consider this thinking. I like sharing my thoughts and I like hearing yours and I like practicing expressing ideas, but fundamentally this blog is not for you, it’s for me. I hope that you enjoy it anyway.

A draft as a usual. Thanks to Annie for that thinking. I will update this post as soon as possible to re-write  either here or there.

Redacted. More Fear = More Money

15 Jun

(I got less that six hours of sleep last night and feeling the need to sleep now. Trying to put it off for an hour or two. . . .)

I don’t think the men in black could convince me that this surveillance is worthwhile. Of course, there is money being made, and that is part of it. But the bigger part of it is that these guys, politicians of the right and the left, are terrified of another 9/11 on their watch. Shred the Constitution? Sure!

Even if Congress tried to stop abuse, which they wouldn’t, they would be overridden by the unitary executive because national security. Let’s face it, at this point the NSA/CIA/DIA has enough to blackmail just about anyone with something to lose to do anything. So, I figure the surveillance state is pretty much baked in. That a 3 month employee could have access to this crap, take it, not be detected until he revealed himself leaves me feeling secure that no rogue employee would ever go stalk an ex gf with this data or anything.

There is at least one implementation under which I would have less concern, and that would be that *everyone’s* information, all of it, on everybody, is publicly accessible and everyone is in the same boat. Where you live, what you get paid, what your boss gets paid, all of your email, all of your phone records, all of your credit card records. Everything. If there’s any such thing as a level playing field that is as close as I can imagine coming to it.

Total Public Awareness night solve a lot of societal problems – like when people see what the markup really is on that item or how many kids died to produce it they might make different choices. But again, like Single Payer it won’t really work unless everyone is in it with equal access. And the 1%ers might have to go Galt. Did anyone here ever read The Falcon and the Snowman? Similar kind of story, 40 years ago about a couple kids discovering that the national security apparatus was completely nuts. The one guy is in jail still. Don’t remember what happened to his friend.

There are lots of companies that develop “products” from the basic intelligence infrastructure. The comments about the PRISM slideshow appearing to be a pitch are probably correct, but do not detract from the seriousness of the content.
It is actively encouraged to have separate groups work the same data, to then compare conclusions. Which opens up the field to a lot of contractors, in a surging growth area. The salaries are high, because the contracts are in the stratosphere, and the trained talent is playing hard to get.

The whole thing is a huge drain on the nation’s resources, and probably won’t protect us from the next big threat, because they tend to be myopic. Now they are aiming at Iran, and NK. Back in the 80s they gloriously missed what Gorbachov was up to and its consequences, because they all needed the Soviet Union to keep ticking, as fighting the Russkies was paying for them all.

They’ll screw up in similar fashion this time, and probably because they have deluded themselves into thinking they can follow,everything to be sure, there is money to be made off totalitarianism (let’s call it what it is). And people are making money off it and will want to continue making money off of it. But i don’t think that explains it, at least not completely. I think the risk to Ghoulgle & Fadedbook would outweigh the value of money they made — if they made money at all. And of course we all know the person whom Snowden “revealed” himself too was Glenn Greenwald, yes? But, you know – boring!

And a few words about Hong Kong where our hero is hiding awaiting his fate, or is he gone? Why Hong Kong might be a good choice? I guess I agree if this guy has defection to China as a backup plan. If he does, then I think my respect for him goes down a notch. Can’t really put in words why, but it somehow does… Maybe it’s because one is wondering why the hell someone who’s upset over “totalitarian” spying on civilians might want to live in the PRC of all places. Yeah, I think that’s part of it. Also, if he really wants to be a hero (I don’t know if he does) then he should face the consequences in the US and let public opinion decide whether he is a hero and free him if that is the consensus. He might face the death penalty no? I won’t ask that of him. I’m kind of assuming that’s off the table or can be gotten off the table. Maybe I’m wrong. I’m with noblejoanie, who is noblejoanie for good reason. He would have to have a pretty thick skin to go to china and why would they offer? Yeah. I don’t think China would want to touch him. He probably isn’t valuable enough to them for the bad biz they would get for it.

Slightly different circumstances

I probably don’t know enough about either. But yeah, if you don’t think you can move the needle, don’t go public. Hide. He doesn’t seem to be seeking hero or martyr status, just an honorable man who won’t make Greenwald take the fall for him. This guy is what Democracy looks like. It pains me to think of what his family is giving up, what he is giving up. I admire Efward Snowden for leaking the information. I doubt very much if I could do what he did – and what he did really is important for everyone. But the reality is that he has stepped on some very big and very sore toes and revenge will be sought I am afraid.

Maybe as someone who works in the private sector in N. Va. I take it slightly too personally, but this sentiment strikes me as no better than right-wing hating on government employees. How the government splits up the work between federal employees and contractors isn’t up to anybody at the working level. Nobody is virtuous or a villain because of which organization cuts their paycheck. The work is largely similar and people go where the jobs are.

Defense spending vs. domestic spending

I can argue about policy without venting bile on an entire class of people who, right or wrong, believe in the value of their work. As most people do. This ain’t Wall Street, you realize. Worker bees in this field can have comfortable existences, but don’t get rich. Singling out a chunk of the middle class as “grifters” because you don’t like the current composition of government spending strikes me as aiming at the wrong target.

Would the same happen after another attack? Would Republicans fall in line behind Obama as Democrats did for Bush? The program was theoretically useful, as long as terrorists were not aware of it and tended to yak away on their phones. Were the really dangerous terrorists really so naive as to think there was no surveillance? Anyway this surveillance will now catch only the really dumb terrorists (and not lone wolves). // To finish this analyze, I’d been working a three long days in a row. In Yakutia, we’re very interested to clarify what’s going on in the world to worth to comment on eyakutia.com as I said. More at albertnikanorov.org

NSA – PRISM – Snowden = RL

13 Jun

What sort of important information are deserved has to brought light to be in the public websites? And there are many various political views that will see things differently and that going to happen on the internet. Was he almost made right decision to the intelligence capabilities of National Securite Agency? And how all this could be done? This news are very interesting topic to discuss in Yakutsk.

A whole lot of people talking about NSA‘s leaks in the last days that one guy had revealed ‘meticulously’ studied documents. His name is Edward Snowden, and he had had  spend thousand of hours in various places of our world to finish the project that I will name like: “So? No suprises here”. In particular, I think the abbreviature NSA can be unscript by each pre-school kid in America, in USA in general. By the way I do not know now, but it really looks like that things going to spread the word describing even ex-girl of ‘hero,’ or ‘non hero’ act of Snowden. However, Is he traitor? The Washington Post, The Guardian are popular news gathering organizations, so they have all chances to manipulate and to influence to the minds of persons like me what they want to know about me what I have to think about the case after reading a bunch of articles on their news websites. Okay.

On the other hand, I haven’t take yet my look at these  documents, but any gossips about Privacy Policу wasn’t surprice for me at all, that Google, Facebook, Skype, Yahoo and others are collecting all posted information by the users and work with goverment structures to save bounds from, for instance, terrorists. No questions here, no! It’s frustratin’ and waste of time to see reactions of users that yelling about ‘private life’ on the internet. What the hell? The internet isn’t our rooms, or secret diaries that we keeping, that’s the internet, the first public place to be understood. And where there isn’t any boundaries comparing with real life. I don’t understand that sort of ‘asnwers’ to the last news about leaked .doc files. The people who sayin’ that facebook are working with FBI. And there are two choices. Don’t  use them at all if you want to safe your private life. Who cares? The colossal scale of information are hosted on the servers of such companies like Google, and these guys can manipulate with them strictly, you know what? We have to applaude them not treat!

For instance, my first name is Google, last is Facebook. My name is Google Facebook, nice to meet you. I’d like to introduce, no, stop, before to begin there’s a ‘laptop’, please use it. You would ask: Why? But you would add: But firstly let me give to use it in short period of time, and I would say my conclusion. I’m relying like: Okay! So time goes by, and you ended up with nice: ” – Oh, it’s great product, easy to use, well documented, simple and so on so forth”. But It can’t surprise me, but it suprised you. Why? Because I’d been working on this project in long period of time, all day and many nights. I know every corners and details how it works. So if you’re using my product I just have to know ‘what’re you doing on there. What exactly?

No big deal, just shut your mouth up and logged off from the internet. Is it sounds harshly, broadly, rudely? By the way, who cares at all events? If you’re caring your private life you will just logged off. In some instances, let’s take a look at dropbox, twitter, iCloud, many many of them. We are changing the way of keeping our files at hand. We are using virtial hard disk drivers instead of our ‘material’. In our local computer we are hosting/saving just videos, photos and musics and may be a few documents. Let’s clarify: our life is going on in various file sharing services,  like: Google Docs, and even yandex-money for local transactions. Though, it will hardly suprice anybody. What would you say about bitcoin?

Needless to say when we are going to send documents to each other one answer to do that is ‘links’. We aren’t just clicking on them, we’re sending it to our friends, workers etc. etc. We are lazy to save it flashdrive, take a walk, and give the result of something to hand if there’s an option just to press on ‘Enter’ at a blow. Why not? So if anybody has a secret not to be tracked that can be leaked, would have rather kept secrets not in bits and bytes, keep them with the help of your’s neurons. Obviously to say our brain is the most fascinating computer in this universe that can be used without any cabel world wide web connections. // Albert Nikanorov. wallmarkets@gmail.com.

Book Boostering

I haven’t Book Boostered for a while, and our newest add on, Munchinwrites, prompted me to remind folk to sign up if they haven’t.  And to also remind me if I promised to add you and haven’t done so. *Ahem, my apologies, with additional lame excuses attachments*

What is Book Boosters?

Here’s the pitch from my Book Boosters page conveniently placed in my banner

Do you love books?

Do you have favorites you read, recommend, and even re-read?

Are you a frequent flyer at the local library?

Are you an on-line regular of book sites, be they promoting to buy, review, or boast books?

Perchance you operate on a need to read basis–you have to have a book in hand, by the bed, stashed in the car, or have one nestled in the backpack.

You then, my friend, are a Book Booster. And you are in good company. Add your…

A new day, a new chance to make something substantial

5 Jun

In the last two days I’d been writing about motivational stuff concerning me and my current works. And you know what? I logged off from social networks again yesterday. Not so big deal, but I even couldn’t catch up what I did that in shortest period of time even didn’t thinking about it. Automatically, I just sent a message to one of my internet folks ‘The last three on the island’. Actually, it was my last session at least in this week and may be more. I do not want to say exactly that I logged off from the universe and don’t want come back anymore, but anyway that was I need to take step action in the last three days.

As you know I created an account on Medium. These guys turn on a possibility to write our own stuff in view of posts finally. And I posted one stuff so far. Here’s the link. In this month I will do my best to keep learn my languages and to promulgate (as a usual) about my days and thoughts, what I’m doing, why I’m doing this etc. etc. and trying to learn exams’ ticket before the exams itself even in four or five days earlier than event coming evening. If you’re understood what I wanted to jabber. Okay, and I ended up with conclusion that my ‘annoying’ voice that why I cannot do that question wasn’t coincidentally. I think that I give up my ‘hard-earn’ minutes and my current hours are so easy to live on. Actually. I cancelled all my programming and language courses by the reason of final tests and exams at the university.

Okay, a little bit about posted notes on Blogger and why I was so touchable and naive in my thinking? The answer to this question is: I was totally drunk. Yeah, and as you know again: Talk is cheap, silence is expensive. But I had to post them even on my blogs. So and so. I started to follow each re-blogged my following users reblogs on Tumblr. Again, I do not know why, but I think it’s all about marketing techniques by feedbacks and likes when users with ‘low high’ followers will come back to check your account and if so to follow you and start to reat what are you sharing and posting. Let’s be honest, why we are doing it actually? Of course not only to look at nice looking photograped by professional models, of course not&

So today I’ve plans to figure out why my cartridge printing on A4 with not equal lines of black-and-white. I’m getting to be nervous by seeing at them after printed papers of my pdf’s books on computer. Yeah, it’s very and very annoying to see ‘shit’ looking learn stuff.

All about patterns in my own world

4 Jun

The life is a casual in most cases. The thing is how to invest every second of/from one day into something anything to get a positive feedbacks from had happened situations, thoughts, feelings, intentions, desires, aims etc etc. In my opinion. One day, one week, one year, a decade, it doesn’t matter. You are getting to be older from the childhood. And it’s coming the day when you’ll realize that you’ve been living on earth just one day. One day can make difference in most cases. Our casual day-by-day situations, thoughts, feelings, intentions, desires, aims  are our destiny to think different and make changes. This is the matter of choosing. In my opinion so far.

So what’s the big deal? To invest as far as you could into one day your best thoughts, feelings, intentions, desires, aims respectively. And I’m doing this all the time, or I hope that the thing going to be exactly like this. Who knows? Who? Me? I don’t think so, we aren’t robots and won’t predict what will happen in the future. The future is a matter of our casual thoughts, feelings, intentions, desires and aims as well. What are you doing in your casual days are the future and what will happened in the future. Languages, programming languages, exams, university, education, parents, girlfriend, friends, social networks, the internet, travel, communication, balcony, social skills, brands, calls, cleaning, etc. etc. It’s a messed up of various fields of our one – day that can make influence in another aspects of life. Such a life. I do not know yet what’s going on the earth but I guess the earth is one huge project of somebody that we call ‘God’. Again, who knows? Who?

 

Is this the future for sharing with the books collobaritevely by paying for one copy just one time?

Is this the future for sharing with the books collobaratively by paying for one copy for one time? It’s sounds utopian, it is. Just imagine this scenario of our future for paying to read a book one time by one person. And there would be one place where this person will have a platform to sharing with this one copy anonymously or publicly as a author of.

I’ve been thinking about it for a long time. Three days ago I released a concept page of that was barely an idea a couple month ago – thepiratebooks.org. I think it’s fair to say that this time come true and I didn’t quite know how reaction would be. But it was. Not so impressive I would have to say. The project is in lite version, and even I didn’t uploaded a collected files to share but I just wanted to know the reaction of my friends what they will say about the idea and how impressively they will support to share with their copies of books. I failed.

In case you missed it, the thepiratebooks.org is alive for posting by everyone. thepiratebooks.org, is my idealistic and fictional concept for a everyone who can read. It has one purpose, and only one purpose: enabling ‘shares’ with ‘if you want to read this book you have to pay in cash’ for free for the masses by the person why had paid in cash.

To do it quickly, easily, beautifully and efficiently. The thepiratebooks.org is about breaking down the same barriers that Amazon originally did for selling e-books. The main aim of thepiratebooks.org the same but with one little difference: share, if you paid your cash to buy a book in amazon.com, share with your copy of ‘knowledge’ with everyone all over the world for free. It’s a cornerstore value and in what I believe personally.

All the knowledge we have today, all the progress we’ve made, are based on this simple fact – we copy. A spirit of free access to information and knowledge and today book burnings are done digitally, by blocking or closing down internet services that has non-profit believes that e-book have to be paid one time and the future of copy is let it fly for free by everyone who hasn’t enough money in order to take these flows of information to improve our world to more better place for sharing with worth to reading ideas for free.
