Baucus & Camp Talk Reform As Tax Road Show Rolls On

By Kelly Phillips Erb, Contributor

I was just finishing up my coffee when I heard the disturbance. I wandered over to the window where I could clearly see a group of folks setting up megaphones and posters, getting ready for something. Curious, I grabbed my purse and headed outside where I could get a better look – and listen. The group, made up of about ten or fifteen folks, had gathered outside of the Cira Centre in Philadelphia, PA, with signs bearing such slogans as “Make the 1% Pay Their Fair Share” and “Stop Corporate Tax Dodging.” …read more

PA Minister: Peace Deal Temporary Arrangement Before Destroying Israel

By George Whitten

israel-map-flag-protest

By Joseph DeCaro, Worthy News Correspondent

JERUSALEM, ISRAEL (Worthy News)– In the latest attempt to liberate Palestine by any means necessary, PA Minister of Religious Affairs Mahmoud Al-Habbash suggested that any peace deal with Israel would only be temporary, according to Palestinian Media Watch.

During Ramadan services broadcast on Palestinian television, Habbash said PA officials were working on a means to an end comparable to the Prophet's Treaty of Hudaybiyyah, a 10-year-long truce negotiated by Mohammad with the Quraish Tribe. But only two years later, Mohammad broke it by a surprise attack that conquered an unsuspecting Mecca.

Habbash described Mohammed’s deceit as a model to be followed today, but according to Palestinian Media Watch, the Hudaybiyyah treaty has already served as the template for PLO negotiations with Israel.

“Since the signing of the Oslo Accords, there have been senior PA officials who have presented the peace process with Israel as a deceptive tactic … which will weaken Israel through territorial compromise that will eventually lead to Israel's destruction.”

In 1994, Yasir Arafat compared the Olso Accords to the Treaty of Hudaybiyyah: “This agreement, I am not considering it more than the agreement which had been signed between our Prophet Mohammad and Quraish …”

Seven years later, Faisal Husseini, PA Rep for Jerusalem Affairs, said the Oslo agreement, like any other agreement, was just a temporary step towards something bigger.

“We distinguish the strategic, long-term goals from the political staged goals, which we are compelled to temporarily accept due to international pressure …,” he said. “'From the river to the sea,' Palestine in its entirety is an Arab land, the land of the Arab nation.”

However, from the Jordan to the Med also stands the nation of Israel, the ancestral homeland of the Jews whose God other peoples disregard at their own peril.

Zotero on Nexus7 in Plasma Active

snapshot2

Zotero, in a nutshell, is a pretty sophisticated literature management tool. It lets you, “… collect, organize, cite, and share your research sources.” In this post I briefly present how I got Zotero running on the Nexus7 tablet in Plasma Active.

Please note that this is a first proof of concept and that there are still many usability issues. However, this demonstrates that it is, generally, possible to run Zotero also on alternative architectures. Personally, my intention is to use Zotero this way while commuting and it should actually suffice for this purpose.

Zotero consist of two parts, a client and a server side. The client side is the user frontend. The server is used as backend for archival and synchronization. The client application is available as browser-plugin and standalone application. I got the standalone version running in PA on Nexus7.

Technically, the Zotero standalone version is a XULRunner application; the Zotero standalone client application itself does not contain any platform dependent code. So, to get Zotero running in PA on Nexus7 an armv7hl version of XULRunner is needed. Luckily, there is already a XULRunner package available in the Mer repositories.

For convenience, I branched the xulrunner version I am using plus some dependencies in a separate project on the Mer OBS. So, in order to get xulrunner and its dependencies it should be enough to add that repository and “zypper in xulrunner”.

The Zotero installation is straight forward. Firstly, a Zotero standalone archive has to be downloaded and extracted. After extracting the Zotero standalone application, one finds a xulrunner directory in there. This can be safely deleted as we are using the xulrunner from Mer. Furthermore, the “zotero” binary is useless for us as it has the wrong architecture. The remaining directory can be simply copied to the Nexus7, e.g., via SSH.

To run Zotero simply execute “xulrunner application.ini” in the directory that contains the application.ini and zotero.jar files. In my case I had to edit application.ini in order to adjust the xulrunner version. Below are some screenshots of Zotero running in PA on Nexus7 and Okular showing a paper from the Zotero database.

Note that I increased the font size via the Zotero preferences. Additionally I extracted the zotero.jar content and increased the icon sizes such that they are easier to hit on the touch screen (find . -name “*png” -exec convert {} -resize 48×48< {} ;). Also note that some drop-down menus are not shown and other drop-down menus are shown in wrong places such that clicking some entries is rather a matter of anticipation or luck but as said this approach still has many issues. Fortunately, the sync feature, at least via WebDAV, seems to work well and opening *.pdf files from the Zotero database works as well. Nonetheless, you have been warned, the user interface on Nexus7 PA, right now, has quite a number of glitches. For me, it is already great to have Zotero with it’s “full” feature set available on a tablet.

Man dies after heart attack at JFK airport after doors at new terminal delay responders

A man died after suffering a heart attack at Kennedy Airport after two teams of first responders failed to reach him — because their electronic ID cards couldn’t open secure doors at the newly renovated Delta terminal, The Post has learned.

Precious minutes were lost due to the tragic snafu, which unfolded early Saturday when Gunseye Adekunle, 50, of New Jersey, collapsed in the $1.4 billion Terminal 4 while he was preparing to board an Arik Air flight to Nigeria, sources said.

A call went out for help, but what happened next was a massive mix-up.

“You had all the assets needed to keep this guy alive, but they never really had the chance to help him,” a law-enforcement source said.

A Port Authority police emergency operator got the call at about 6:30 a.m. and was told Adekunle was “unresponsive” but breathing.

One minute later, a PAPD ambulance known as Medical One was dispatched — but the crew reported being unable to enter the terminal from the street two minutes afterward because an officer’s security card wasn’t working.

“Access denied at elevator,” a radio transmission noted.

The trouble delayed the Medical One team for two vital minutes, but then they were able to get into the building by another route and get to Adekunle.

The Medical One rescuers are only EMTs, however, and the plan was for an FDNY crew of better-equipped and better-trained paramedics to arrive and take over.

But that second rescue squad also ran into frustrating issues with security doors. At about 7:10, the Fire Department responders were denied entry when the security system refused to recognize an ID access card used by a PA cop escorting them. The delay robbed the dying man of more precious seconds.

“Seconds are critical when responding to a cardiac event,” a source familiar with the incident said, “and unfortunately, unnecessary obstacles take away those critical seconds and possibly a patient’s fighting chance.”

A source said the cop used his card twice at one entry point and again at a second, but was unable to lead the FDNY team inside.
