What lessons could the United States learn from some of the successes of other nations?

Americans are not very good at using history or others experiences to our advantage. We also see ourselves as unique because of the diversity of our population and the wealth and power of our nation. Unfortunately this doesn't help improve our healthcare or education, two areas where many nations are ahead of us. The very wealthy have excellent access to both but if you are poor your access to either is minimal

As a U.S. military member, how can I marry a non-U.S. citizen? Will she get the same benefits?

I would not desire for my little kids to be in a identical intercourse marriage. I desire for them to have a natural marriage, similar to carrots and peas in combination. Plain and functional. Imagine the arena, if there used to be no such factor because the holy bible and the numerous one-of-a-kind varieties of church structures and the numerous one-of-a-kind types religions through out the whole global. What could lifestyles be like in these days if those functional matters did not exist?

------

Could I live in Japan? or in Asia?

It sounds like you never considered learning Japanese on the reputation that it's a hard language to learn. You underestimate the effort foreigners living Japan (aside from English teachers, long-term tourists, and SOFA military personnel) spend on learning Japanese. Living in Japan as a white guy American is entirely possible and can be comfortable. It mean working in Japan, which means getting a job in Japan. Job prospects for you might be limited to Japanese branches of American multinational corporations. A business degree might be a plus for that, although most companies will consider your work experience more important than your major. A multinational will still prefer a bilingual candidate for a local permanent hire, so your better bet is to seek an internal transfer by getting hired in the states. There may be no entry level transfer positions, so you might have to put in a few years and get into management before you can transfer.

how come south america doesnt unite become one country if they speak the same language?

You're still a dunce. Those nations comprise various indigenous tribes with little commonality. Perhaps a thousand indigenous languages dominate those regions variously, and Spanish is just an occupier's language written on a European constitution. Maps are made first for navigation. Do some real navigating, rather than off your sofa.

What was the main cause of the decline of the Ottoman Empire?

The rise of the Sofa and Loveseat empire. haha, just kidding. Ottoman decline (loss of huge territories) is typically characterized by historians also as an era of modern times. The Empire lost territory on all fronts, and there was administrative instability because of the breakdown of centralized government, despite efforts of reform and reorganization such as the Tanzimat. During this period, the Empire faced challenges in defending itself against foreign invasion and occupation. The Empire ceased to enter conflicts on its own and began to forge alliances with European countries such as France, the Netherlands, the United Kingdom, and Russia. As an example, in the 1853 Crimean War the Ottomans united with the British, French, and others against Russia.

Dan h, Obama recently signed a security pact with Afghanistan.

How to Fight Tech Monopolies: Lessons From Margrethe Vestager, the EUs Soft-spoken Amazon
She ate a piece of Google in an Amazon bun with a slice of Apple for breakfast. Then she fined Qualcomm, one of the worlds largest chipmakers to pay 997M for shutting out rivals. Margrethe Vestager, the European Commissioner for Competition is unstoppable. Heres a quote that is exactly 110 years old. Regardless of its old-fashioned language, its very much like those you can read in a Guardian op-ed. And the author is definitely not Jeremy Corbyns granddad:To permit every lawless capitalist, every law-defying corporation, to take any action, no matter how iniquitous, in the effort to secure an improper profit and to build up privilege, would be ruinous to the Republic. Thus spoke President Theodore Roosevelt. A man of action who spared no kind words for trusts. Google translate trust into 21st century language and youll get a vexing tech giant. For the occasional scuba-diver of history, their modern day problems seem disturbingly familiar. Now enter a Danish mother of three. Up against tech-trusts with nothing but her soft voice and a big stick, as per Teddys golden piece of advice.The European Union has its own armored amazon, a Wonder Woman of customer protection. Well, not really, adds Vestager with a headshake. Its not our job to rush around looking for people to rescue, getting involved in anything that looks unfair. Uncompromising in fairness, she wants to make competition as open as vast Danish skies she stared at as a child.Ardent trustbuster and fervent knitterMargrethe Vestager has been active in politics since her early twenties and rose to fame as Commissioner in 2014 . Much to the dread of Google, Apple, Facebook and Amazon, the most powerful trustbuster, revealed she wont leave her office to become the President of the European Commission.With a second mandate, we can do some fantastic things, said Vestager in an interview and you can hear teeth grinding in Dublin and Palo Alto offices. And the analogy with president Roosevelt is not even accidental. European antitrust policy was very much inspired by the United States.But, instead of an amazons long sword, needles make perfect weapons for a Commissioner. Vestager is as an ardent trustbuster as a fervent knitter: In our work on competition, like any good knitter, we have a pattern to follow. In Mountain View, California it reads: open season for hunt.Shes keen on giving a voice to European consumers in the name of economic and political stability. The success of antitrust in the end means regaining trust. When people feel cheated by the market, they very easily lose trust in their whole society.A nodding ghost of old Teddy emerges to add something here:Our aim is not to do away with corporations; on the contrary, these big aggregations are an inevitable development of modern industrialism, and the effort to destroy them would be futile unless accomplished in ways that would work the utmost mischief to the entire body politic. We can do nothing of good in the way of regulating and supervising these corporations until we fix clearly in our minds that we are not attacking the corporations, but endeavoring to do away with any evil in them. We are not hostile to them; we are merely determined that they shall be so handled as to subserve the public good. We draw the line against misconduct, not against wealth.In Vestagers words: The real problem comes when dominant companies misuse their power. To avoid the risk that competition will disrupt their business, just as they once disrupted others. To close down the routes that other companies can use to challenge them with new, more innovative products.At Brain Bar, weve debated a lot about the role technology and big tech plays in our societies. This year, well have the pleasure to hear Margrethe Vestagers personal take on this issue
Coronavirus Absurdities From All Over the World
Hello, I am a filmmaker, based in Milan, Italy already in self-isolation for a couple of weeks. My articles are generally focused on what is happening locally (see them below), but in this weeks article, as the title suggests, I would like to focus on the absurdities from around the world. Obviously, there are thousands, such as people Googling if they can get Coronavirus from eating Chinese food or getting a package from China, but sadly I had to choose only a few. I tried highlighting the most extreme cases.Coronavirus - Update from locked-down ItalyA place where words - Story & Survival Guide-from ItalyA place where words matterlink. medium. comCorona Beer SalesSales of Corona beer have taken a hit due to the Coronarivus.But so has the whole sector.Anheuser-Busch InBev, maker of Budweiser, Corona, Stella Artois and other brands, all predicted a 10% decline in Q1 profit after the Coronavirus outbreak hit beer sales during the Chinese New Year. Constellation Brands, the company behind Corona beer, claimed the the virus led to lower demand of beer in China, both within households and bars. Obviously, the internet wasnt interested in specifics. Once word got out that Corona beer sales are down and PR company 5WPR conducted a survey polling 737 people and concluded that 38% of beer-drinking Americans would not buy the beer under any circumstance after the Coronavirus outbreak . And so the internet went crazy with memes. Free Porn in Quarantined AreasThe porn website xHamster is offering free premium subscriptions in the regions and cities quarantined because of the Coronavirus. For now these include Lombardy (IT), Veneto (IT), Tehran (IR), Daegu (KR), Wuhan (CN) and Adeje (ES).One of my Italian friends added that thats the best news he had heard in the past ten days. Hand Sanitisers and MasksPeople around the world are panic shopping for masks and hand sanitizers. This led to a major jump in their prices and in people taking advantage of the shortage. Hand sanitizers that would normally cost 35 euros would now be sold from anywhere between 50200 euros. A group of Italians even aimed at selling masks that were practically worth nothing for 5000 euros.These guys are now also on trial for fraud and market speculation, so please, think twice before going down the same path.CoronaracismRacism has spread like wildfire. People seem to think that ones nationality is responsible for spreading the virus, rather than being infected by it.A few days ago a 23-year old student from Singapore was physically assaulted in London by a group who was yelling I dont want your Coronavirus in my country BBC reports.A 16-year-old boy was also physically assaulted in a US high-school for being Asian and hence certainly affected by the Coronavirus, reports CBS news. A young Italian man in Spain was bullied into wearing a mask at work. He works for a restaurant and a friend of their boss came in, looked at him and said I have a present for you. She pulled out a mask and handed it to him. He answered that he had been living in Spain for years and hadnt been back in Italy for months, to which she replied Yes, but you are Italian. At this point his bosses, burst out laughing and said I cant believe we didnt think of this earlier. Put on that mask.CoronaCoinProbably one of the grimmest outcomes is a new cryptocurrency that was inspired by the Coronavirus itself. The Bitcoin-like cryptocurrency, called CoronaCoin, operates in the following morbid structure: the number of available coins called tokens will decrease, and so increase in value, the more people get sick and die of the virus, the currencys website reads.The number of tokens originally set was 7,604,953,650, representing the estimated population of Earth.As the number of infected/dead from the virus increases, the number of tokens are manually burned every 48 hours, the website reads. So for every one infection, one token is burned.By the 28th of February, 85,366 tokens had been burned.Pollution levelsA strange consequence of the virus is the drop in pollution levels. The air quality in China and Italy in this time of year has not been this good in years, if not decades.In both China and Italy general economic activity has slowed down, majorly decreasing polluting activities.Reasons for lower pollution levels vary from people preferring to stay at home and hence getting into their cars less to plants shutting down for short periods of time. Some governments are asking companies to make Smart Working available for their employees to be able to work from home; and schools and universities that had to close because of the virus are introducing online courses.Final NoteA question that inevitably comes to mind is whether these changes are short term or whether they will continue shaping our world after the virus is contained. Will schools and companies become more flexible about e-learning and smart working? Will our already tech-dependent world try to find even more benefits in doing social activities from behind a screen? Will this drop in pollution levels bring about new solutions on how we could continue keeping them down after economic activity is restored?Let us find out.

European Women in Tech 2018
With over 3000 attendees and 170 speakers from just under 150 companies, covering subjects ranging from technology to soft skills domains, this years Women in Tech conference has most definitely delivered on the variety and the quality of content, as well as the networking opportunities, fun and inspiration. Visitors were spoilt for choice choosing between hands-on workshops, knowledge sharing sessions and 70 booths of the expo experience.The eBay Classifieds Group (eCG) booth, which was situated in the very middle of all hustle and bustle of the expo area, provided an unforgettable experience of meeting our fellow tech enthusiasts from most diverse backgrounds and career journeys. It was a huge pleasure to welcome visitors from all around the world many of whom turned out to be eCG fans for a cup of artisan coffee at our booth. Who would have thought that we would get such a delightful feedback on our product! I love Gumtree, I sold so much on there!, mobile.de is such a useful platform! Most of my friends got their cars through it. , Marktplaats is huge in the Netherlands! were the most frequent phrases in our corner of the floor. It was also amazing to find out that many of eBay values were shared by our visitors, who, just like us, aspired to be driven, inventive, courageous and promote rich diversity. Of course, we couldnt let our guests leave without a little something, so we were pleased to be able to give away a load of swag, with our lovely eCG branded tote bags being particularly popular (closely followed by our stylish t-shirts). The rest of the expo area was just as exciting and awe-inspiring: from humanoid robots, VR pieces and medical sensors to face recognition installation which could guess your gender, age, hair colour, the presence of lip and eye makeup and even emotion in real time and almost accurately! (After all, who would mind being confused for a 24-year-old?)eCommerce platform Zalando were 100% on brand giving away many fashionistas dream versatile t-shirts, which guests could customise to their liking. I went for the confidence-boosting Be brave inscription and couldnt be happier with my choice well worth the queue!Meanwhile, a whole different vibe was set in the presentation zones, where the speakers were sharing their professional insights and key industry trends, which will most likely define the not-so-distant future of tech.So-called Cobots (collaborative robots, designed to physically interact with humans in the shared workspace) are on the rise, according to Nora Bereczki, Global Marketing Manager at OnRobot, and, with the predicted sales growth of 30% by end of next year, play a good catch up with the demand for traditional industrial robots, potentially competing for the 34% of the $33. 8 billion robotics market by 2025. They are smaller, lighter, easy to program (many companies provide specific DSLs) and redeploy and are often provided with a set of sensors for safety. Similarly, end-of-arm tooling market is forecasted to grow at a CAGR of over 13%, the Technavios report shows.Violeta Misheva, Data Scientist at ABN AMRO, in her talk Reinforcement Learning: The Less Hyped Approach to AI recapped the place of the Reinforcement Learning (RL) a ML algorithm, where actions are improved by trial and error approach reinforced by an award or punishment in the ML/AI landscape and summarised the advantages and disadvantages of it, arguing that, even though RL mimics human learning in long-term-sequential-decision tasks which require adaptation and modification, and the spared effort of labelling the test data, RL still remains data hungry, and computationally expensive. It is also sensitive to environment instability and prone to challenges of specifying an accurate reward, as well as the risk of overfit.On the information security side of things, Sylvia Chidi, Director of IT at Emanuel School, gave a good overview of Intrusion Detection Systems, many of which turn out to be open source and are available for free (a comprehensive list can be found here), while Kat Chilton, a Senior Front End Developer at Adyen, shared her experience in setting up an automated system for ensuring the application security from the npm dependency management perspective. To address security verification in todays fast-moving JS world with exceptionally complex dependency trees, Kat suggests taking the following most important factors into account when estimating the potential risk of a dependency: versions, licenses, vulnerabilities, difference between source code and npm publication, package age and lifecycle scripts all raised to the power of the size of the dependency tree. An elaborate post on this subject can be found here.On a more practical note, an impressive masterclass on Fast Prototypes with Flutter and Kotlin/Native by Mobile Engineering Manager Ayelen Chaves from OLX Group showcased how, in a matter of hours and using free and open source tools developed by Google, a cross-platform fully functional app prototype can be built from scratch.The tech stack Ayelen used included: Flutter for Common UI/UX Kotlin/Native for common models Firebase DB for simple static back-end Sketch plugin for material theming Numerous Flutter plugins for essential bits and pieces like log in, tracking, user preferences, etc. Another useful hands-on workshop run by Steven van Rossum, Strategic cloud Engineer at Google, Getting started with BigQuery, shared how Googles cloud-based big data analytics web service could be set up for your project in Google console and be easily used for processing very large read-only data sets. And it comes with an amazing bonus from Google: over 50 free public data sets you could get your hands on for your next pet project! Historical Air Quality, London Crime, Human Genome Variants and Open Images are just a few which are up for grabs.Aarti Kriplani, a Software Engineer at Pivotal Labs, won her audiences hearts with the interactive demo of an audio library app design. Aarti showed just how easy it is to set up the web application framework using Spring Initializr, which generates all the boilerplate code for you, keeping your focus on the business logic design, and deploy it using CloudFoundry the open source cloud application platform. It was yet another opportunity to witness how Kotlin a programming language combines the beauty of its elegant syntax with the power of JVM.Overall, the European Women in Tech Conference 2018 was a wonderful, insightful and inspirational experience, full of thought provoking conversations and practical ideas!.
What Brexit Teaches Us About Building Software
Disclaimer: The recent Brexit referendum and its consequences are without doubt, of great importance and a topic that I do not take lightly. Seeing the events unfold made me realise how the popular vote, inaccurate data and their consequences have many parallels with my views on building SaaS products. While this appears a strange thing to consider (for most people probably!) my love of politics and software made the comparison something I did naturally with great interest. Please take this article as intended a simple, interesting observation and opinion I wanted to share this is not a deep analysis of Brexit or a disrespectful take on a very serious subject.A few long weeks have passed since the news broke that Britain had voted by a slim majority to leave the European Union. It was a shock to many yet most of the British government are respecting the decision and going ahead, preparing the country for a turbulent time and engaging in talks with other European nations on how we should tread this new and uncertain path. While some hold this up as an example of democracy in action, there are strong arguments to be made that listening to a popular vote without understanding who voted or why they did so, can lead to a grave outcome in which very few benefit:Ironically, many of the people who currently receive the most support from the EU voted to leave and could consequently be the worst affected:Brexit would widen the north-south divide as poorest areas stand to lose most. The ultimate irony at the heart of the debate is that the most Eurosceptic regions the north, the Midlands and Cornwall are the biggest recipients of EU funds. The GuardianThe referendum was advisory only yet it has been interesting to see how the desire to prove that democracy is alive and kicking has meant the wider context and other information available quickly faded into the background of the debate. Perhaps we would be wiser to declare that the brute force of the popular vote isnt democracy at all:Britains referendum wasnt a triumph of democracy. It was an ugly populist fiasco a race to see which side could achieve the right crescendo of anxiety and rage at the right time. How did such an important political question become so mired in hysteria and misinformation? time. comAs the dust (kind of) settles and the news gradually sinks into a confused and divided nation, its clear that Brexit has some lessons that we can all benefit from.Lesson #1: Imperfect information leads to imperfect decisionsIn the aftermath of the results, it quickly became apparent that large swathes of the public had been misled by the leaders of the leave campaign who quickly retracted their key promises then quit their posts. Tales of Bregret began to emerge as searches for What is the EU? quickly became the hot Google trend the day the results were announced:Googles trends suggest that UK internet users were not only mystified by what would happen if Britain backed Brexit many seemed not to know what the European Union actually is. Evening StandardImperfect information is a danger to us all. Theres a very broad range of entirely relevant reasons that people voted to leave but it was disappointed to see how misinformation led to people feeling let down by the political process and the leaders of the leave campaign.As builders of SaaS products we should always think critically about the data we have available and take steps to ensure the information we use is as accurate and relevant as possible. Spreadsheets, boards and forums full of feature requests with plus one votes make it difficult to understand priorities due to incomplete and stale information. Without proper insight into who feature requests have come from or why they were requested, you quickly fall into the trap of developing features which arent optimal in facilitating growth.Lesson #2: The who mattersDuring the campaign many advocates for the remain vote were institutions that have deep expertise in the advantages & disadvantages of the European Union and that collectively have a huge impact on the economy. A graphic circulated on Facebook showing impressive support from MPs, The Bank of England, International Monetary fund, leading businesses and national unions.While everyones opinion should be considered and respected it was interesting to note that when you segment (the alleged) supporters on each side, it could be argued that those with expertise on the impact of leaving the European Union should be given a higher weighting. Perhaps we should also consider the huge majority of young people (for whom this decision has the greatest impact) should be weighted higher given that they will live with the consequences of such a major decision. A comparison would be listening to the feedback & feature requests of free triallers who have spent a few days kicking about your product when you could place your development resources into strategic features which are a high priority for your most important customer accounts and prospects.Growth comes when you build the features which have the highest impact. The who has to matter but when the popular vote is involved, it simply does not. Lesson #3: Always ask whyAnother interesting effect of the aftermath of Brexit were the surveys that emerged about the reasons voters had chosen to leave. Much was written about a disenfranchised swathe of Britain who had been badly hit by government austerity measures. While this isnt true of every leave vote, the referendum became the vehicle for a vocal and powerful protest; a vote against austerity, against the current government and against the elite:The vote in Britain to exit the European Union (EU) is a victory for those who believe in the right of self-determination and who reject the pro-corporate, austerity policies of the political elites in EU. The vote says no to the EUs vision of a world run by and for big business. It is also a rejection of the European political elite and their contempt for ordinary people. Rolling StoneThis reminds us all to ask why. A simple word but you always learn so much. When feature requests are made, its usually a fully described feature or function. Simply asking why gets you to the root of the pain point or issue. The referendum has exposed a huge pain point but it wasnt until the shock result that anyone dug deeper and looked beyond the vote itself.Lesson #4: Its the question that countsHow you ask a question matters greatly. The referendum question was binary; the only outcome of your vote was a simple yes or no instead of degrees of more or less involvement in the European Union. The most avid remain supporters do not think the European Union is perfect there are, after all, many shades of grey. However, all or nothing is a hardline approach that does not capture the nuances of opinion:The reduction of a complex and graduated choice to a basic dichotomy simply does not reflect the position or serve the interests of the vast majority who will be affected by the outcome. What is more, and worse, the crude logic of either-or plebiscitary politics threatens to become a self-fulfilling prophecy. Having donned the referendum straitjacket, the British people or rather their political masters have been increasingly inclined to frame their arguments in mutually reinforcing all-or-nothing terms. UK Constitutional Law AssociationHow a question is asked (and the question itself) should always be considered when capturing feedback & feature requests for your SaaS product.Be aware of the limitations of your approach. Do you want feature X or feature Y? and What features do you want? are very different questions to What are your biggest pain points?, How can we improve the process? or How can we make this work better?.An open feature request flow also opens up different feedback for you. Think about what you need to know then devise the most effective and appropriate approach because its often the grey that tells you the most. Lesson #5: Context mattersand so does strategyAs we steam ahead with talks to leave the European Union, many feel that the wider context and strategy of Britain is missing from the post-referendum conversation.Smart decisions are made when context and strategy are considered. You can, of course, only act on the information you have available yet the popular vote has bulldozed sanity, laying claim to the title of The Only True Democratic Option. Many cannot help but feel further debate is required taking other factors into account for example:The leave campaign won by a very slim majorityThe mis-information by the leave campaign only came to light following the resultIt appears that many did not understand nor appreciate the gravity of the voteMany who voted leave will be the most negatively affected by the loss of EU fundingUncertainty in the markets since the result was announcedLeading financial institutions & businesses want to remainTheres no plan for what leaving the European Union looks likeWe now have an unelected Prime MinisterScientists are already being dropped from vital fundingYoung people (who this decision affects most) voted to stayThe strategy for Britain has to be considered in all of this; the popular vote from an advisory referendum must be considered alongside the other information available instead of a standalone and irreversible result that trumps all else.Building features based on the popular vote has never been a good idea and if asked if I think thats a good way to run a country, you probably already know my answerby Hannah Chaplin Jul 22 2016Receptive helps SaaS product teams listen to the right people and build the right product, Learn moreOriginally published at receptive.io on July 22, 2016
Our Investment in Automation Hero: Empowering Information Workers Through AI
German entrepreneur Stefan Groschupf has spent the past 25 years developing machine learning solutions for some of the most complex enterprise environments. As one of the earliest big data activists working on the Apache Hadoop project, and most recently with big data business intelligence company Datameer which counted over 50% of the Fortune 50 as customers he has also proved himself able to scale companies on both sides of the Atlantic.But as Stefan saw a shift in customer demand from business intelligence to business automation, and in emerging technologies from big data to AI, he knew there was a new opportunity to be captured, and moved his sights to building the next generation of robotic process automation. The robotic process automation (RPA) market has seen extreme growth in the last few years, but current technology was architected over a decade ago and is limited to automating simple, repetitive click robots. Data integration, processing and machine learning are added as an afterthought and therefore intelligently automating more advanced business processes in complex IT environments remains challenging.Thats why Stefan and his highly experienced team decided to found Automation Hero. The team are building an AI and big data-centric intelligent process automation (IPA) platform that tackles the automation problem with a completely new approach. Instead of running automations as isolated robots, Automation Heros platform runs highly scalable, distributed automation flows that weave together click robots, structured and unstructured data sources, deep learning, data processing and the human workforce into an intelligence fabric that creates an operating system for the modern enterprise.At Atomico, we believe in the power of emerging technologies to change the way we work for the better, and which is why we believe in Automation Heros mission to empower information workers by automating mundane, repetitive tasks and give them back time for more fulfilling higher value-add activities such as interacting with customers. The company is already seeing explosive global growth, especially within large enterprise sales organizations where there are high ROIs from automation. Its three primary use cases focus on eliminating manual repetitive, time-intensive tasks, automating common customer requests and augmenting sales rep decision making.Customers in financial services, telecommunications and travel and tourism have cited ROIs in the hundreds of millions by saving their employees up to one hour per day, and we believe that this technology has significant potential to drive transformation and automation across business processes in many major industries. Atomico is proud to announce our Partnership with Automation Hero, and excited to welcome Stefan and his team to the Atomico family. Ben Blume, principal at Atomico, will join the Automation Hero board with this latest round of funding.Originally published at on March 13, 2019
