The pressure to save is also affecting Bonn’s urban green spaces. The gardeners are not happy about it. However, tourist attractions continue to be lavishly planted.

Factfulness

#^Factfulness
Image/photo

“The stress-reducing habit of only carrying opinions for which you have strong supporting facts.” — See the book Factfulness »

Factfulness is a relaxing habit for critical thinking. It helps you maintain a fact-based worldview. It teaches you how to recognise and avoid the most common ways information gets misinterpreted.

First: Realize that we don’t see the world as it is.
part is to accept that humans don’t see reality just as it is. There’s to much information for us to process it all. That’s why we all have an attention filter in our heads. But this attention filter is hard wired to make use care more about dramatic information, which easily leads to a stressful over-dramatic impression of the world.
Factfulness is the skill to recognise the common types of stories that tend to get all the attention because they trigger our dramatic instincts.

Second: Recognise what types of stories trigger our dramatic instincts
Next, you need to learn to recognise the common types of stories that trigger your dramatic instincts. this will help you control your intake of drama. Most people need to think twice to control their intake of sugar and fat. And it seems to be the same with drama. Here is the list of dramatic instincts and below this list we have listed the concrete rules of thumbs that help you avoid overdramatic interpretations.

Third: Use simple rules of thumb to resist over-dramatic stories
As soon as you start recognising the ten most common types of dramatic stories that trigger your dramatic instincts, it’s much easier to control your feelings of drama, and avoid having them triggered. You can quickly question the relevance of common dramatic interpretations with some few simple questions.

Ich weiss nicht. Als erstes ist dies für mich sinnloser Aktionismus und vollkommen an den eigentlichen Problemen vorbei. Was ich so mitkriege scheinen die Probleme nicht die zur Verfügung stehenden Mittel zu sein, sondern viel mehr die zur Verfügung gestellten personellen Ressourcen in Staatsanwaltsschaften, Gerichten und Verfolgungsbehörden.
Beim besten Willen fehlt mir auch nur die Vorstellungskraft irgendeinem der handelnden Personen eine bewusste tiefer gehende Absicht zu unterstellen wie zum teil vermutet. Vielleicht ein paar Nostalgikern kleiner Randparteien ausgenommen. Aber gerade deswegen wäre es um so gefährlicher solche tiefgreifende und völlig sinnlose Einschnitte zuzulassen, anstatt die verdammte Verantwortung zu übernehmen die nötigen Ressourcen den staatlichen und öffentlichen Stellen - geht ja bei Pflege, Gesundheit, Bildung, etc. genauso weiter - zur Verfügung zu stellen um ihre Aufgaben erfüllen zu können.

Aber das braucht eben die wichtigste Ressource von allen: Geld! Und das kann man ja schlecht denjenigen wegnehmen, die genug davon hätten. Dann lieber Handlungssimulation. Aber ich fürchte so einfach ist es nicht. Die Massivität, mit der bürgerliche Rechte abgerissen werden, finde ich erschreckend und das löst in mir den Verdacht aus, dass da eben doch viel mehr dahinter steckt, als man sich vorstellen mag.

Add pagination to TYPO3 default File Links Content Element

 Bonn, GermanyFri, 20 Apr 2018 01:19:46 +0200 
Ever wondered how to add a Fluid paginate widget to a non Extbase extension in TYPO3 #CMS? For example a core Content Element (CE) and fluid_styled_content? It is straight forward when you are familiar with TYPO3, but there was one not quite obvious workaround needed to make it complete. The following solution is tested in TYPO3 v9.1 and v9.2, but it is possible that there will be another solution in core in the future.

I have a TYPO3 default File Links [uploads] Content Element (CE) and wanted to output a collection from a folder with a lot of files. I was surprised, that there was no pagination available, but it is a fluid styled template, so it was easy to add a paginate widget.

Add a template override path to your Template constants:
# Add Fluid Styled Content template override path
styles.templates.templateRootPath = EXT:myext/Resources/Private/ContentTemplates/


Add to your ext Template setup following TypoScript to set an alternative template name for File Links CE. Also add a workaround for non-extbase elements like the File Links CE [uploads]. This is needed so that the Fluid paginate ViewHelper will also work. Otherwise you have pagination, but only results from the first page are shown, because no controller is executed.
##
# Customised TYPO3's File Links Content Element with pagination template.
#
# CType: uploads

# Use a customised fluid styled content template
tt_content.uploads.templateName = MyFilePagination

# Workaround to add functionality for non-extbase elements (https://forge.typo3.org/issues/79430)
tt_content.uploads.extbase {
    pluginName = filelist
    controllerName = filelist
    controllerExtensionName = myext
    controllerActionName = show
}


You can take the default template from typo3/sysext/fluid_styled_content/Resources/Private/Templates/Uploads.html and save it at typo3conf/ext/myext/Resources/Private/ContentTemplates/MyFilePagination.html. In your customised template add the Fluid paginate widget ViewHelper around the for ViewHelper and change the variable according:
<f:widget.paginate objects="{files}" as="paginatedFiles" configuration="{itemsPerPage: 10, insertAbove: 1, insertBelow: 1, maximumNumberOfLinks: 10}">
  <f:for each="{paginatedFiles}" as="file" iteration="fileIterator">


That's it. ;-)

Drupal webform mail template override

 Wed, 18 Apr 2018 13:32:49 +0200 
The default #Drupal swiftmailer mail template override works something like this:
swiftmailer--[mymodule]--[mykey].html.twig

I was struggling how to configure a module which actually needed more than just module--key identifiers. For example when you have several Drupal webforms or even several handlers for one webform. It was not directly obvious how to access each handler, but actually it is quite simple:
swiftmailer--webform--[webform-node-id].html.twig
swiftmailer--webform--[webform-node-id]-[handler-id].html.twig

#^Death of Jan Loh - Bonn remembers the "Alle-mal-malen-Mann"

13.03.2018 Bonn’s best-known city artist has died. Jan Loh drew many thousands of pictures during his time as the “Alle-mal-malen-Mann” in Bonn’s bars and beer gardens. For many Bonners, he is closely connected with their home town.


You always saw him in the city at night. Last time I saw him was just few days before he died, but during the day in a mall. Looking back the last weeks I must be the only one who was never painted by him. The funeral was just yesterday in Kessenich at a nice graveyard I crossed several times when we went to the forest with Kindergarten.

#^No, end-to-end encryption does not prevent Facebook from accessing WhatsApp chats
Image/photo

At a glance
* During his Congressional hearing, Mark Zuckerberg claimed that Facebook doesn’t have access to WhatsApp chats thanks to end-to-end encryption.
* Nevertheless, communication channels between the WhatsApp and Facebook iOS apps could be abused to leak data from the entire chat history.
* The object of this article is not to claim that Facebook snoops on WhatsApp chats, but that end-to-end encryption is used by both WhatsApp and Facebook as a disingenuous and misleading argument to reassure the public.

#^Accident in Dubai? Your smart number plate will soon alert police, ambulance

Trial phase of smart plates to begin next month  says RTA

Dubai: Vehicles equipped with smart number plates will automatically send out alert to police and ambulance centres in case of accidents or any other emergencies, officials said on Monday.
Dubai will be the first city in the world next month to run a pilot of smart plates, testing the Roads and Transport Authority’s (RTA) Tag2Connect (T2C) platform.


Another first in the world, and a related initiative is the Vehicle Chain project that will help RTA track the history of a vehicle from birth to scrap.
“The Vehicle Chain project will bring all the stakeholders such as manufacturers, dealers, workshops, insurers, licensing authorities, police and vehicles owners on a single platform. This will bring in the much needed transparency in the auto industry, especially in the used car market,” said Abullah Yousuf Al Ali, CEO of RTA’s Licensing Agency.
