從這個父親節,每天多花50分鐘,開啟家中性別平等之路
那么,该如何走出迈向平等的第一步呢?报告给出的宏观方案包括五个方面:国家层面的法律与政策制定;社会层面的性别规范;家庭层面的支持;夫妻之间的磨合以及男性自身的投入。那男性该如何投入呢?就是这么简单——每天投入50分钟。减少一顿晚饭的应酬,少睡一会懒觉,戒掉一盘游戏,而用于参与家务劳作。男性每天增加50分钟,女性相应就能减少50分钟,两性的无薪家务劳作时间便达到了各占50%的比例。

Soju, Beer Pong, and the Romance of Cultural Exchange (or the Cultural Exchange of Romance) – BLARB
As Garam introduced me to Korean food gradually during that first semester, I acquired a taste for the fundamentals. The first meal, and the one we would share most often thereafter at the circular table in her kitchen, centered around dwenjang jigae (된장 찌개), a heartier version of the miso soup you would find in a Japanese restaurant. She served it with rice, a stack of business-card-sized seaweed papers, soy sauce, and a small mound of kimchi. When I saw her meal laid out on the table in eight small dishes for two people, I became ashamed and defensive about my first attempt to cook for her: a deluxe frozen DiGiorno’s pizza. (But it was deluxe!)

Garam was impressed with my chopstick skills, which she claimed were better than hers. I held the chopsticks so they formed a V shape, whereas she held them so they formed an X. She also explained that, while Japanese use cylindrical chopsticks and Chinese use square chopsticks, Koreans use flat ones.

Letter of Recommendation Murphy Beds
A regular old bed just sits there, inert, banal, a little sad. But a Murphy bed pops out of the wall — boing! — like the punch line to a dirty joke. It is an instant boudoir. You pull down your Murphy bed and a saucy question seems to hang in the air: Now what?

Japan’s Vegetable-Eating Men

Japanese men were spending about an hour a week on childcare and household duties, while women were spending 30 to 40 hours a week, numbers that had not shifted as the country had become more dependent on women’s labor outside the home. Japanese men were spending about an hour a week on childcare and household duties, while women were spending 30 to 40 hours a week, numbers that had not shifted as the country had become more dependent on women’s labor outside the home.

Not only are such men a large part of what has enabled Japan to dramatically increase the workforce participation of women in recent years (after lagging behind most developed countries since 2000, Japan shot past the US last year, with 76 percent of women now part of the labor force), but domestic bliss is increasingly becoming a viable alternative for those men who find themselves unable to secure a high-paying full-time job.

Just as the culture was expecting women to simply add work on top of full-time childcare and housework duties, men were being asked to just add involved parenting to an already-long—60 hours, in some cases—workweek.

Enter the IkuBoss. In 2015, the government launched a program targeted at shifting the workaholic mind-set of employers and bosses. Emerging alongside Prime Minister Shinzō Abe’s “work-style reform” proposal—which aims to decouple employees’ salaries from the number of hours they work, put a cap on overtime hours at 720 hours a year, and require companies to pay “regular” and “irregular” employees the same rate for the same work—IkuBoss intends to change the culture of work from the top down.

Letter of Recommendation Mess
Every time I observe a woman gliding agreeably through life like a stewardess on an endless flight, modestly dressed and smiling ruefully to deflect any presumption that her existence is anything other than morally and aesthetically impeccable, I’m reminded of the enormous pressure placed on those of us who aren’t men to construct an identity that falls within the limits of acceptable behavior. And I’m reminded of how readily these stifling restrictions permeate the physical spaces we create for ourselves.

Pourquoi le compteur Linky électrise les passions

« Les raisons de mon refus sont nombreuses », explique ainsi Michel T., qui dénonce à la fois « l’inutilité absolue pour l’usager, la collecte des données personnelles, la transformation de mon habitation en antenne de radiofréquences dangereuses et nocives, le risque de destruction de mes équipements, (…) la surévaluation des mesures de fourniture effectuées par rapport à ce que je consomme. »

Autre sujet de désaccord : l’impression d’un changement à marche forcée qui ne profite pas nécessairement aux usagers. « Je ne vois pas en quoi ce nouveau compteur m’apporterait un plus, s’inquiète Anne, de Chambéry. C’est surtout un atout pour EDF, plutôt que pour les clients ! »

« Je tente de m’opposer avec mes petits moyens au monde orwellien dans lequel nous plongeons », explique Françoise. « Je pense qu’un monde avec contact est plus vivable, intéressant, réconfortant, plus humain, que le monde “à distance” qu’EDF veut imposer », renchérit Gérard K.

Les opposants utilisent alors des techniques de guérilla pour empêcher l’installation : cadenas posés sur les portes de locaux électriques, compteurs enfermés dans des boîtiers en béton, refus avec lettre à un huissier ou un avocat. Certains jouent au jeu du chat et de la souris avec les installateurs pour les dissuader en fixant des rendez-vous, puis en refusant d’ouvrir la porte.

Memories of Thanksgivings Abroad and In Between

I remember tweeting into the void about Brussels sprouts and cranberry sauce on the morning of my first Thanksgiving abroad. Nobody who might have cared was up yet.

In it, she writes about realizing, after becoming a foreign correspondent, that the picture she had of America hadn’t been complete—that one hadn’t seen the whole picture of America until one had left the national borders, because the whole picture included foreign interventions, cultural exports, and various modes of thought that were invisible at home.

The agonizing particulars of the Presidential race, which were doubly nerve-wracking to watch from afar, had been hard to explain to inquisitive Spaniards. I craved American company—to be able to dish and spar with some compatriots in the know. So when a group of expats invited me to dinner, I accepted, bringing a bottle of Rioja.

All of these celebrations offered, and birds ritually consumed, have led me to a single, significant conclusion: If it’s true, as my colleague Calvin Trillin long ago suggested, that everything exotic that isn’t chicken tastes like chicken—rattlesnake, ostrich, etc.—the one thing that can be said for certain, on Thanksgiving, is that no matter what you do to it, a turkey will always taste like a turkey.

Emprunts : mensualités, intérêt, taux, TEG, risque de taux - Images des mathématiques - CNRS
Ou comment impressionner son banquier

Comprenons le principe d’un tel prêt. Chaque mois vous versez une mensualité constante que l’on va chercher à déterminer, on la considère pour le moment comme une inconnue. Cette mensualité sert d’abord à vous « mettre à jour » avec la banque en lui versant la rétribution due ce mois-là pour la somme que vous restiez lui devoir depuis le mois précédent. Une fois « quitte » avec la rétribution de la banque, le reste de la mensualité sert à rembourser une partie du capital prêté (qui diminue ainsi progressivement, on parle de prêt à amortissement progressif). Tout cela est calculé pour que vous ayez remboursé la totalité à la mensualité N.

On est parfois surpris de constater, en recevant son « tableau d’amortissement », que l’on rembourse au début beaucoup d’intérêt et peu de principal. Vu le principe de ces prêts, c’est normal, puisque chaque mois, on paye l’intérêt sur la somme que l’on devait encore le mois précédent, très forte au début et faible à la fin.

Ceci explique sans doute que les prêts sur des durées supérieures à 20 ans, jusqu’à 30, ne soient vraiment apparus que ces 10 dernières années, avec la chute des taux de prêt.

Cette information doit être utilisée avec précaution et ne permet pas de comparer deux prêts s’ils ont des durées différentes. En effet cette information dit certes combien on va donner à la banque, mais pas à quel moment ! Or un banquier sait bien (c’est son cœur de métier) qu’à cause de l’inflation et des placements sûrs, une même somme en euros n’a pas vraiment la même valeur selon la date à laquelle on la reçoit.

les intérêts sont versés chaque année et portent à leur tour intérêt : ce sont les fameux intérêts composés

Donc attention, la donnée qui traduit vraiment l’effort de la banque, c’est le taux d’intérêt. C’est pour cela que c’est ce que l’on négocie âprement avec son banquier, ou que les informations données dans les sites Internet sur les prêts sont exprimées en taux.

Savez-vous que lorsqu’un commerçant vous propose un crédit gratuit supérieur à 3 mois, ceux qui payent comptant doivent se voir proposer un escompte ?

Comment comparer ces deux prêts de durée différente ? En calculant un taux d’intérêt assurance comprise, bien sûr.

Comment faire ? Pour chaque prêt vous calculez la mensualité à l’aide de 2, puis vous ajoutez le montant de l’assurance, et vous calculez comme on l’a vu plus haut le taux correspondant au total prêt + assurance.

Possessed: the dangers of the digital home
the dream of all these manufacturers is that they will be able to harvest your most intimate data. The user survey and the focus group will be replaced by real-time information. Unknowingly, we will be conducting market research for the manufacturers and online retailers as we carry out our domestic chores, eat, chat and just move around in our homes.

If the temperature in a room rises, they will know there are more people in it and, if it rises a little more, that they are getting up to some strenuous, possibly intimate, activity. They will know probably more than us about how we use space.

How to tackle terrorism, by Oxford university’s vice-chancellor
Richardson’s insight into the terrorist mindset goes well beyond academic expertise. As a teenager, she was a Republican sympathiser, attending meetings and adopting Gaelic as her first language. She “would have joined the IRA in a heartbeat”, she confessed in her 2006 book What Terrorists Want. Her sympathies were the result of growing up in rural Ireland where a Republican version of history was taught, which she questioned when she learnt a different version at Trinity College, Dublin.

Education is the best form of counteracting extremism, she says. She is not in favour of the “safe spaces” that have crept into UK universities. Students should be exposed to extreme views, even those of radical imams, in a space where orthodoxies can be challenged. “We are educating students to go into the real world where you are not protected from views you don’t like.”

Experience: I accidentally bought a giant pig

By the time we realised her size, we were in love. She’s unlike any animal I’ve met. Her intelligence is unbelievable. She’s house trained and even opens the back door with her snout to let herself out to pee. Her food is mainly kibble, plus fruit and vegetables. Her favourite treat is a cupcake. She’s bathed regularly and pigs don’t sweat, so she doesn’t smell.

It was emotional realising she was a commercial pig. The more we discovered about what her life could have been, it seemed crazy to us that we ate animals, so we stopped.

I will survive

Survivalism has a long history in America. The early settlers were survivalists, though they did not use the term. They built their own houses, grew their own food and filled their stores with whatever supplies they could, knowing that failure to do so might be fatal. The pioneers who trekked out West in the 19th century expected to meet hardship and danger. Those who went well armed and well prepared were more likely to survive.

Roughly four in ten expect Jesus to return by 2050, and although the Book of Revelation is hardly crystal clear about the details, many think the Second Coming will be preceded by a Great Tribulation involving earthquakes, floods, famine, the rise of the Antichrist and the death of most of humanity.

To keep inventories low and cut costs, companies have come to rely on just-in-time delivery. If a disaster were to disrupt all this, people could quickly find themselves without diabetes drugs, oxygen for respirators and spare parts for more or less everything.

Quick bites: breaking bread in Uzbekistan
Uzbeks still consider Samarkand non — with its dark crust and bagel-like consistency — to be the best, and discs of it travel long-distance today to the Uzbek diaspora living around the world, carried in the luggage of visiting relatives.

Head chef Robert Panak will use a traditional tandoor oven to get results close to the original. We use a strong flour and Moul-Bie blanche T55 [baguette flour] in order to achieve a crisp ring with a fluffy texture on the inside. We also cut the dough while still in the mixer to add extra air, in the traditional Uzbek way.

You’ll find that in Uzbekistan, non accompanies every meal, and different cities and provinces have their own variations. At the Chorsu Bazaar in the capital, Tashkent, babushki (old women) sell their non from vintage prams. Compared with Samarkand non, Tashkent non is lighter and softer; In Khiva, 600 miles away, it is crispier and thinner.

To make non, the nonvoy (baker) rolls the dough flat and stamps it with a chekish (a special tool with long metal teeth). The dough is then brushed with an oil, egg or milk wash and sprinkled with sesame or onion seeds before being slapped on the curved walls of a red-hot clay tandoor oven.

Ancient traditions still surround non: it is never placed face down or cut with a knife (it is only torn by hand). At weddings, the bride and groom both take a bite of non and then finish it the next day as a married couple. If a man goes away, for army service or to study, his family will get him to take a bite of non and then hang the bread on the wall until his return. It’s the same for the many Uzbeks who travel to Russia for work today. They know that when they return, the non they took a bite from will be waiting for them.

Can Netflix Survive in the New World It Created?

Cable networks like FX and AMC were developing expensive, talked-about dramas, the kind HBO pioneered with The Sopranos and The Wire. But these series, with their complex, season-long story arcs and hourlong format, seemed to be poor candidates for syndication, unlike self-contained, half-hour sitcoms like Seinfeld, which can be watched out of order.

Hastings and Sarandos realized that Netflix could become, in effect, the syndicator for these hourlong dramas: We found an inefficiency, is how Hastings describes this insight.

How to play video files on VLC? – Dropbox Community
Public links were deprecated and replaced with Share Links. You can likely do the same thing in VLC using a share link once you've modified it a bit. Change the dl=0 at the end to dl=1. Just remember that each account has a set amount of bandwidth available for any 24 hour period (20GB/day for Basic accounts, 200GB for Pro). That bandwidth covers all share links and any mobile traffic. Multiple downloads of large files or streaming large videos can easily trigger a bandwidth overage which results in a temporary suspension of ALL your share links. Remember, Dropbox is not a streaming service and was not intended to be used as one.

Why Refrigerators Were So Slow to Catch On in China
A device like a refrigerator has to fit within a web of habits, conditions, and behaviors. But then again, maybe it fits best when it changes those habits, transforming them into new ones. Refrigerators allow their owners to buy groceries less often, to change up cooking habits and eating schedules and not worry about leftovers, to keep on-hand foods that are more perishable. These aren’t old habits, after all, but the peculiar habits of modern living. And those habits make refrigerators all but obligatory.

What's behind Japan's moss obsession?
Japanese culture also values age and history. Because moss doesn’t grow dramatically overnight – and instead takes years and years to cover the surface of a stone – the Japanese see something inherently virtuous about the plant. Of course, there’s also the beauty of moss: vibrant colors that vary from bright green to brown, which richly complement the steely grays of stones, the red leaves of autumn and the soft pink of cherry blossoms. Many fans love to touch the plant’s sensual, soft surface.

Home, sweet exomoon: The new frontier in the search for ET
Then there is the effect known as tidal heating. In a system with more than one moon, varying gravitational pulls as the bodies orbit the central planet can stretch and squeeze a moon’s interior, causing friction that can generate enormous internal heat. (Our moon’s smaller pull doesn’t generate much heat, but does create ocean tides.) Such effects could extend the region around a star in which liquid water can exist well beyond the habitable zone towards a “habitable edge” much further out.

Seth Brown's Writer Workflow
Mark Twain said that work and play are two words that describe the same thing under different conditions—I feel extremely lucky to be able to agree with him.

If I get stuck while writing, I use a few techniques to help me. Sometimes I start working on another project for a few days then go back to writing. Switching working environments and input devices can help. I move from working on the computer at my standing desk to an iPad on a chase. If I get stuck more than once or twice while working on a piece, it's usually a sign that my original ideas are flawed.

Retirement Plan: An Airbnb Travel Adventure
The Senior Nomads have their own checklist, little rituals to lessen the feeling that they are camping in a stranger’s home. After arriving, Ms. Campbell heads straight for a market; cooking at home saves money and gives the couple a chance to try local foods. And after chatting via FaceTime with Mary Campbell or another of their four children, they watch a podcast of “NBC Nightly News,” delayed by one day.

In Morocco, the Campbells were struck by the local architectural style, the way their riad was furnished with long couches and low tables for people to sit and drink tea, and designed around a courtyard with an opening to the sky instead of windows to let in light.

But those have been rare, and the couple has developed a careful selection process. They use filters on the Airbnb site to find a handful of well-reviewed rentals in their destination city, looking for places around $90 a night, with Wi-Fi, an adequately stocked kitchen, a location in the town center and, ideally, outdoor space. They email the hosts and begin culling the list based on availability, past experience and gut reactions.

Meet the Unlikely Airbnb Hosts of Japan
Using the IBM data, and later incorporating the research of other social scientists, he came up with six measures to help define and analyze the values, attitudes and behavioral impulses of any group — from something as small as the population of a single office or factory to something as large as a nation. These include individualism versus collectivism, indulgence versus restraint, power distance (a group’s acceptance or rejection of hierarchy) and, perhaps most important for Airbnb, uncertainty avoidance.

it seemed, everyone had some defining experience with outsiders. Two of the couples were multinational — Japanese natives with partners who were American and Chinese. Other hosts were Japanese by birth but had lived in other countries or traveled a lot. This appeared to give them a certain renegade perspective, a degree of global cross-pollination and comfort with strangers that seemed to put them at odds with many of the people around them, but also made them more like other Airbnb users internationally.

She was even tolerant of the French, who she admitted, when pressed, could be the most challenging guests of all.

One of her daughters lived in Los Angeles for eight years, and Miki had gone for extended visits. She knew acutely what it felt like to be dislocated, the stun of a country that’s not your own.

家用HTPC廉价解决方案 | 何必呢
开始之前先讲一个故事,大概是这样的,一直以来我都想打造一个趁手的家用媒体中心,要求其实也很简单,就是要有快速的无线网络,安全的文件存储中心,24*365的下载上传方案,以及可以连电视播放高清的HTPC。当然这其实只是我最理想的解决方案,当然我也知道如果我有很多钱,那么肯定很容易实现我的这些要求,所以问题又回到原点。我其实是没有钱的。前面说这些都是废话前提,不是我要讲的故事。我要说的是之前我差不多已经解决了家庭无线网络的问题,我买了一台贝尔金F7D4301ZH,刷了Tomato。买这个路由是因为它支持5GHz网络,还是一个千兆路由,带USB口能连移动硬盘啥的。总是用了一段时间我也觉得还OK,接下来我就开始琢磨起安全的文件存储中心了,我看各种NAS,什么Synology啊,NETGEAR啊,BUFFALO啊。总之比来比去都看着挺贵的,随随便便配齐硬盘就得三五千了吧,上周我看到苏宁有款 NETGEAR MS2000才卖698,应该还挺值的。话说回来,我这个是个思维非常发散的人,研究NAS这空我就在想光NAS花那么多钱也不值啊,又不能下载,又不能连电视的,还不如配台电脑呢。所以这个故事其实是这样的,我本来是想买NAS的,结果不知道怎么的就成了折腾HTPC,为了折腾几百块钱的HTPC我甚至还去买了一台平板电视机。
