Companion animals form the next smallest group on our list. The estimate of 1 billion animals worldwide is composed primarily on the basis of other estimates for the numbers of dogs and cats living as companions to humans, so it is again an underestimate for the total number of companion animals worldwide. 15 However, most animal advocacy aimed at helping companion animals aims to help those without a home or without access to veterinary care, ECCO Womens Womens Gillian Slip On Fashion Sneaker Rose Dust wea427We
which is only a fraction of the total companion animal population. For instance, HSUS estimates that there are 160-180 million dogs and cats in US homes, about 85% of which have been spayed or neutered (requiring some access to veterinary care; of course some people who could spay or neuter companion animals choose not to and do provide other veterinary care). They estimate that under 8 million dogs and cats, about 4% of the total population, enters shelters each year. 17 If outreach seeks to affect only 4–15% of companion animals, this is an affected population of about 40-150 million animals worldwide. Again, this is a large number of animals, but when we consider other animal causes, it seems much smaller. Even if this estimate is too low because companion animals other than dogs and cats are not included in the estimate or because the fraction of needy companion animals is higher in areas with fewer resources, a revised estimate would still probably be quite low compared to the populations of farm and wild animals.

Animals used on farms make up the majority of those raised and used by humans, with an estimated 33 billion land animals alive at any given time. 18 This estimate is more exact than any other we will consider, since governments conduct counts of livestock in order to understand and regulate local economies. 19 However, this is a somewhat similar undercounting to what we saw for lab animals: fish and shellfish are not counted, and in some areas they are raised for consumption in large numbers. 20 The estimates also neglect other animals used for food, such as wild fish or commonly hunted land animals, although these animals may be affected by some of the advocacy aimed at helping farmed animals through promoting diet change. Even with these omissions, this estimate is 100-1000 times higher than our estimates for the numbers of animals affected by advocacy for companion or lab animals, suggesting that farm animal advocacy is the most important cause of the three—at least in terms of the number of animals involved.

We have two separate estimates for the number of wild animals: about 10 trillion vertebrates (which is more comparable to the estimates we’re using for the size of other groups of animals, which dealt with similar subsets of the animals truly affected) and about 10 quintillion animals in total, including invertebrates such as shellfish and insects. 21 , 22 Although counting the number of wild animals is very difficult and these estimates are therefore tentative, it is immediately clear that there are many more wild animals than animals in situations controlled directly by humans, a result that makes intuitive sense especially when small animals (from mice to insects) are considered.

Furthermore, there are many more insects and small animals generally than large charismatic mammals, a point that must be considered in assessing which types of wild animal advocacy are most important. 24 By numbers alone, advocacy directed at helping all wild animals is by far the most important cause dealing with a subgroup of all animals.

SEDFLUX is a basin-fill model, written in ANSI-standard C, able to simulate the delivery of sediment and their accumulation over time scales of tens of thousands of years. It simulates the dynamics of strata formation of continental margins fuse information from the atmosphere, ocean and regional geology, and it can provide information for areas and times for which actual measurements are not available, or for when purely statistical estimates are not adequate by themselves.

Sedflux combines individual process-response models into one fully interactive model, delivering a multi-sized sediment load onto and across a continental margin. The model allows for the deposit to compact, to undergo tectonic processes and isostatic subsidence from the sediment load. The new version, Sedflux 2.0 introduces a series of new process models, and is able to operate in one of two models to track the evolution of stratigraphy in either 2D or 3D. Additions to the 2D mode include the addition of models that simulate (1) erosion and deposition of sediment along a riverbed, (2) cross-shore transport due to ocean waves, and (3) turbidity currents and hyperpycnal flows. New processes in the 3D mode include (1) river channel avulsion, (2) two-dimensional diffusion due to ocean storms, and (3) two-dimensional flexure due to sediment loading. The spatial resolution of the architecture is typically 1–25 cm in the vertical and 10–100 m in the horizontal when operating in 2D mode. In 3D mode, the horizontal resolution usually extends to kilometers. In addition to fixed time steps (from days to hundreds of years), Sedflux 2.0 offers event-based time stepping as a way to conduct long-term simulations while still modeling low-frequency but high-energy events.

This will be something that the CSDMS facility will add

1) Water discharge

2) Mean suspended load entering the ocean basin

3) Bedload equation by Bagnold (1966)

1) Advection-diffusion equation

4) Non-conservative concentration along and surrounding the centerline position

1) Amount of bottom sediments that can be reworked by resuspension and diffusion

2) Amount and direction of transport of the ith grain size

1) Stability of a possible failure plane

2) excess pore pressure using Gibson's graphical approximation (1958)

In August 2017, Illinois became the 10th state to enact automatic voter registration (AVR). This landmark legislation will reduce voter registration barriers and bring more than one million voters into our democracy, boosting the voter participation of low-income communities, young people, and people of color. This victory was possible because of the leadership and organizing of a diverse and powerful coalition of grassroots organizations who refused to give up after Illinois Gov. Bruce Rauner vetoed a bipartisan AVR bill in 2016. Having ties with Trump’s agenda is toxic is bad for business, and in June 2017, we got one more company to step away from his economic advisory council. When Donald Trump withdrew the United States from the Paris climate accord –his most recent move to put the greed of millionaires over the people –Disney CEO Bob Iger resigned from Trump’s economic council! It’s about time. Now the other Corporate Backers of Hate are next! In early 2017, we urged Uber CEO Travis Kalanick to stand with immigrants and drop ties with the Trump Administration, and he listened!Nearly 200,000 customers participated in the viral #DeleteUber campaign, and thousands more reached out to the company through petitions, phone calls, and actions nationwide. Kalanick resignedfrom Trump’s economic advisory council in early February —a huge victory for Muslim and immigrant families, and proof that when we come together, we can move corporations to be on the right side of history. Donald Trump signed an executive order barring immigrants and refugees from seven Middle Eastern countries from entering the United States as one of his first actions as president, and our communities did not stand for it. Our partners across the country helped coordinate and lead protests at airports, raising the profile of this horrific law and bringing it to the country's attention. Because of these actions, a federal judge issued a federal stay against Trump's executive order, protecting immigrants at airports and in transit to the United States. While this didn't stop Trump's ban a month later, it brought our communities together and set us up for the next big fight. In early 2016, the Governors of California and New York worked with their state legislatures to become the first in the nation to ensure a $15 minimum wage for hourly workers. And in November, voters in Arizona, Colorado, Maine, and Washington raised their states' minimum wage at the ballot box. These victories are proof that direct action and community organizing are vital for social and economic justice! 2016 was a breakthrough year in the movement for a family-sustaining workweek, thanks to the leadership of our partners and powerful coalitions across the country. In Seattle and Emeryville, tens of thousands of people working in the retail and food service industries won Fair Workweek policies that guarantee them predictable, balanced hours that allow them to plan ahead. And in November, San Jose's historic Opportunity to Work Initiative passed overwhelmingly at the polls! When it comes to bad banks, Wells Fargo ranks among one of the worst. And under the leadership of CEO John Stumpf, the bank opened nearly two million fraudulent bank accounts at the expense of customers' pocketbooks and credit scores. To make matters worse, John Stumpf also served on the Federal Advisory Council. In late 2016, a coalition of national leaders and our partners won two victories: not only did we get Stumpf to resign from the Fed, we also got him to resign as Wells Fargo's CEO and chairman! In July 2016, a federal judge dramatically weakened Wisconsin's voter ID law that would have prevented tens of thousands of voters from casting their ballots in November. And just two days later, a federal appeals court ruled that Texas' voter ID law, the strictest in the country, was racially discriminatory and in violation of the Voting Rights Act. These victories were made possible by voting rights organizations, lawyers, and community activists coming together to fight against restrictive laws that disenfranchise our communities and suppress the vote.

In May 2016, 126 members of Congress, including Senator Bernie Sanders, Senator Elizabeth Warren, and othersreleased a letter criticizing the Federal Reserve for its striking diversity problem and failure to properly represent and reflect our communities. In response, Hillary Clinton’s campaign released a statement saying that “commonsense reforms” like getting bankers out of the Fed’s governance are “long overdue.” Our Fed Up campaign was largely responsible for this shift in perspective by injecting the voices of working families and communities of color into the debates about America's monetary policy!

Thanks to the hard work of our coalition led by CPD Action's state partner Maryland Communities United, in early 2016 the Maryland General Assembly voted to override Governor Larry Hogan's veto and restore voting rights to more than 40,000 previously incarcerated Marylanders. Restoring the right to vote to those with felony convictions strengthens our democracy, public safety, and communities across the country. States from coast to coast are starting to havethis conversation, and the movement is growing! More than 6,000 members of the CPD Action community signed petitions asking theFederal Reserve to meet with working families to understand how the economic "recovery" is impacting Main Street, not Wall Street.This summer, the Fed Up campaign and our local partners met with Federal Reserve Chair Janet Yellen and the rest of the Fed governors andthe presidents of the banks in San Francisco, St. Louis, Kansas City, Boston, Atlanta, and New York.

IBM, the GDPR and “blockchain” — whatever that word specifically means

Gyula Pal from IBM Blockchain argues that the EU’s General Data Protection Regulation is short-sighted in not carving out an exception for blockchains — and that this is a symptom of government’s fundamental incompetence with new technologies, as they can only look backwards:

Without regulators learning the technology behind blockchain, GDPR will only be a victim of its own intent. Once this is changed, not only will blockchains not be blocked by GDPR but effective food safety, carbon cap and trade, and a transparent jewellery supply chain, will be regulations that can be effectively enforced, collectively marking the beginning of the era of proactive regulations.

Of course, all of these use cases are prospective IBM marketing pitches — and none of them somehow require the database to be a permissioned blockchain, rather than a database with some other architecture.

(I’m pretty sure that if the authors of the GDPR did understand blockchains, they’d be delighted to have drafted the antidote.)

But what specifically is Pal asking for?

“Blockchain” is a buzzword — it has no specific, agreed-upon meaning. There’s a spectrum from Bitcoin-style cryptocurrencies to literally just the Merkle tree, as in Estonia’s KSI Blockchain — which was only renamed “Blockchain” for marketing purposes.

You get bad legislative attempts to define “blockchain” or “distributed ledger technology” — and the EU has one in the works — but I’ve yet to see a legal definition of “blockchain” that would include the things sold as “permissioned blockchain,” but wouldn’t also include any Kenneth Cole New York Womens KamNYC Fashion Sneaker Black EZ6B9

This is because the actual meaning of “blockchain” isn’t a specific technology — it’s the hype around a particular set of unrealistic promises:

The promises were originally made for Bitcoin— which had failed most of them by 2014 — and then lifted wholesale to try to market very un-magical and mundane Merkle trees to business. The product is the hype itself.

IBM’s “blockchain” products are distributed databases with centrally-administered access, whose architecture is that the nodes send each other their write-ahead logs in a format that uses a Merkle tree.

That is — Pal is arguing for special treatment for distributed databases, as long as they use a particular data structure to communicate between nodes.

I think this is unlikely to fly with the EU.

Pal’s post is generic business special pleading. But I’d have expected IBM to be better at it than this.

(I suspect the post is at least partly intended for internal consumption. IBM’s having a hard time coming up with real-world production uses for Hyperledger, despite a couple of years’ vendor-subsidised pilot programmes intended for ECCO Mens Soft 7 Fashion Sneaker Whisky Retro Perforated U5OgRu
