Near the bottom of the island of Hispaniola in south-east Haiti is a forgotten village, cut off from its own country, and slowly emptying as its residents leave. As well as health services or electricity, Boucan Ferdinand also lost its only road to the nearest town, Bois Negresse, in devastating floods in 2004. Some of its residents have left for the capital, Port-au-Prince, while others cling onto a precarious life. Many have crossed illegally into the more prosperous neighbouring Dominican Republic

Honduras’s homicide rate has fallen significantly in recent years, but the country still has one of the highest murder rates in the world. The fall can be attributed to the initiatives of police and military forces against drug smugglers and gangs. In a country of 8 million people, there are an estimated 7,000-10,000 street gang members

I cam across this after read http://www.openculture.com/2019/01/bertrand-russells-10-commandments-for-living-in-a-healthy-democracy.html which lists Russell's actual rules. Considering that one of those rules is Have no respect for the authority of others, for there are always contrary authorities to be found and that memes that attach a person's name to them as an appeal to authority then this is a *deliberate * trashing of Russell.

Grrrr.

Lenna. The First Lady of the Internet


https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lenna
Lenna or Lena is the name given to a standard test image widely used in the field of image processing since 1973. It is a picture of the Swedish model Lena Söderberg, shot by photographer Dwight Hooker, cropped from the centerfold of the November 1972 issue of Playboy magazine.

Before Lenna, the first use of a Playboy magazine image to illustrate image processing algorithms was in 1961. Lawrence G. Roberts used two cropped 6-bit grayscale facsimile scanned images from Playboy's July 1960 issue featuring Playmate Teddi Smith (born Delilah Henry), in his MIT master's thesis on image dithering.

Intended for high resolution color image processing study, the Lenna picture's history was described in the May 2001 newsletter of the IEEE Professional Comm

- #Taiwan's #Guidebook of #Marine #Debris – in #pictures
- #images #photos #foto #photo #photography #photograph #photographs #newsphotography #worldnews



The environmental education association Re-Think has launched The Guidebook of Marine Debris to highlight the 101 most commonly found plastic items washed up on Taiwan’s beaches. From Hello Kitty toys to cigarette lighters from thousands of kilometres away on the Midway Islands, Re-Think photographed the items in a bid to educate young people on the extent of the problem. The project took a year to complete with the help of beach clean-up volunteers around Taiwan and the Society of Wilderness.

The oldest piece of waste was a military food pack found in Kinmen dated 1988. It still carried the slogan: “Unite against the Communists and promote love for our compatriots.”
