    Zemsta na nadzorze budowlanym... mam nadzieję, że skuteczna:

    "Do kontrataku przechodzą właściciele escape roomu zamkniętego przez nadzór budowlany za to, że działał w lokalu wykorzystywanym niezgodnie z jego oficjalnym przeznaczeniem. Przedsiębiorcy sugerują, że to samo na sumieniu ma sam nadzór i że jego siedziba jest formalnie… mieszkaniem. Urzędnicy nie zaprzeczają"

    Psia sierść bardziej higieniczna niż ludzka broda

    [​IMG]

    Zaawansowane technologie obrazowania medycznego, takie jak tomografy komputerowe, stają się coraz łatwiej dostępne. Odpowiednie urządzenia stoją w coraz większej liczbie placówek medycznych, gdzie są opłacane z podatków. Znacznie gorzej jest w przypadku weterynarii, ponieważ nieliczne przychodnie i gabinety stać na taki sprzęt, a nie mogą one liczyć na budżet państwa. Logicznym byłoby wykorzystanie istniejącej infrastruktury ludzkiej medycyny również w przypadku zwierząt, tym bardziej, że wiele takich urządzeń całymi godzinami stoi bezczynnie.

    W niektórych krajach weterynarze próbują namówić prywatne szpitale i kliniki, by zezwoliły na obrazowanie zwierząt, jednak pomysł ten spotyka się z dużymi oporami, a jako argument przeciw podaje się – bez żadnych dowodów naukowych – względy higieniczne. Tymczasem okazuje się, że nic bardziej mylnego – futro psów jest mniej zanieczyszczone niż męska broda.

    Zespół naukowy pracujący pod kierunkiem Andreasa Gutzeita ze szwajcarskiej Hirslanden Clinic postanowił porównać bakterie żyjące w brodach mężczyzn oraz w sierści psów. Do badań zaangażowano 18 brodatych panów w wieku 18–76 lat oraz 30 psów różnych ras, od których próbki pobrano z futra na karku. W obu przypadkach porównano zagęszczenie mikroorganizmów.

    Okazało się, że o wysokim zagęszczeniu mikroorganizmów można mówić w przypadku 100% badanych mężczyzn i w przypadku 77% badanych psów. Jednak, co gorsza, ludzkie brody były znacznie częściej siedzibą chorobotwórczych patogenów. Ich obecność stwierdzono bowiem w brodach 39% badanych. Dla psów odsetek ten wynosił 13%.

    Szwajcarzy dodatkowo pobrali próbki z jamy ustnej i porównali żyjące tam mikroorganizmy. W jamie ustnej ludzi żyło znacząco więcej mikroorganizmów niż w pyskach psów, stwierdzili badacze.

    Podczas naszych badań zauważyliśmy, że w męskich brodach występuje znacznie więcej bakterii niż w psich futrach. W ludzkich brodach stwierdziliśmy też więcej mikroorganizmów groźnych dla człowieka. W skanerach do rezonansu magnetycznego, które wykorzystywano do obrazowania psów, nie znaleźliśmy żadnych mikroorganizmów powodujących choroby odzwierzęce. Na podstawie tych badań możemy stwierdzić, że w porównaniu z brodatymi mężczyznami psy należy uznać za czyste, napisali badacze.

    Zespół Gutzeita zauważa jeszcze jedną korzyść, poza finansową i lepszym wykorzystaniem istniejącego sprzętu, z dopuszczenia do obrazowania psów w klinikach dla ludzi. Otóż, jako że większość osób uznaje, że futro zwierząt jest mniej higieniczne niż ludzki zarost czy włosy, można z dużą dozą prawdopodobieństwa stwierdzić, że urządzenia byłyby przecierane płynami dezynfekującymi po każdym czworonożnym pacjencie. Byłoby więc dezynfekowane znacznie częściej niż obecnie, gdy korzystają z nich wyłącznie ludzie, a co za tym idzie, stan ich higieny byłby znacznie lepszy.

    $3B Indian Submarine sunk because someone left the hatch opened

    Want to know how to sink a 3 billion dollar submarine? The Indian navy can give you lessons, as it seems one of their sailors nearly perfected the method in 2017. The INS Arihant is the flagship of India’s nuclear fleet. However, it has been a harbor ornament for nearly 10 months, following an incident last year.

    Sink a 3 Billion Dollar Submarine
    According to The Hindu, while the INS Arihant was in harbor a sailor apparently forgot to close an external hatch on the sub before a dive. As the ship submerged water flooded into the vessel. This could have been fatal for all 100 sailors aboard the boat had the issue not been caught and quickly remedied. Life under the sea is dangerous enough for sailors without careless mistakes like this one. While the identity of the person, or persons, who are responsible for the incident is not publicly known, they were very nearly able to sink a 3 billion dollar submarine without firing a singe shot.

    India’s Nuclear Triad
    The INS Arihant is part of what is known as the “triad” of India‘s nuclear fleet. They currently have a second nuclear submarine on lease from Russia. The INS Chakra reportedly suffered damage to her sonar domes when coming into Visakhapatnam harbor in October of 2017. With both ships suffering damage and needing repairs, the only nuclear submarine remaining in the fleet was quietly launched in November of the same year. The naval leaders decided against a high publicity launch with the PM in attendance, and the INS Arighat slipped into the water almost unnoticed by the world. If the sailors aboard the INS Arihant had accidentally succeeded in sinking the 3 billion dollar sub, it would have critically crippled India’s naval defenses.

    Arihant Is India’s Best 2nd Strike Option
    The INS Arihant is the primary ship in India’s fleet capable of carrying nuclear missiles in the event of a 2nd strike situation. The country currently has a policy against being the first nation in a conflict to fire nuclear weapons. If the incident had ended differently India would be severely crippled in terms of nuclear capabilities. It is almost certain no one aboard the INS Arihant intended to sink a 3 billion dollar submarine, but the error quite nearly placed their entire country at risk.

    Nuclear Fleet Is The Final Goal
    India hopes to build a nuclear fleet of 5 Arihant class submarines. However, the program hinges upon the success of the flagship. The cost of the program has already been more than 4 times what was initially projected, according to a former Navy official. He said, “It was initially estimated to cost about ₹3000 crore for three boats — now the cost of Arihant itself seems to have gone over ₹14,000 crore.” In simple terms, someone almost managed to sink a 3 billion dollar submarine in its home harbor. If that had happened, it could well have been the end of India’s plans to build a fleet of nuclear subs. The issues that have created the unexpected cost in the program are largely attributed to its Russian design. The local fabricators making the parts for the Arihant seem to have trouble getting them to match correctly. That, coupled with extensive clean up and repair operations following the incident last year, has dramatically increased the cost of the Arihant. The Arighat, the second sub in the nuclear fleet is expected to be commissioned sometime in 2020.

    Alibaba founder Jack Ma urges his employees and their partners to 'have sex marathons every day' at a group wedding

    https://www.dailymail.co.uk/news/ar...partners-sex-marathons-day-group-wedding.html

    "Jack Ma, founder and chairman of online marketplace Alibaba, has sparked criticism after advising his newlywed employees to have sex six times in six days."

    "'What is 669? Six days, six times, with duration being the key,' Ma said to the 102 couples dressed in wedding dresses and suits at the ceremony. In Chinese, the word 'nine' is a homophone with the word for 'long'."

    Jack Ma to jednak klawy gosc! Jednak spotkala go fala internetowej krytyki za ta wypowiedz. Pewno same incele i inni impotenci go oskarzaja...

    Facebook content moderators break NDAs to expose shocking working conditions involving gruesome videos and feces smeared on walls

    Content warning: This story contains descriptions of violent acts against people and animals, accounts of sexual harassment and post-traumatic stress disorder, and other potentially disturbing content.

    Keith Utley loved to help.

    First, he served in the Coast Guard, where he rose to the rank of lieutenant commander. He married, had a family, and devoted himself utterly to his two little girls. After he got out of the military, he worked as a moderator for Facebook, where he purged the social network of the worst stuff that its users post on a daily basis: the hate speech, the murders, the child pornography.

    Utley worked the overnight shift at a Facebook content moderation site in Tampa, FL, operated by a professional services vendor named Cognizant. The 800 or so workers there face relentless pressure from their bosses to better enforce the social network’s community standards, which receive near-daily updates that leave its contractor workforce in a perpetual state of uncertainty. The Tampa site has routinely failed to meet the 98 percent “accuracy” target set by Facebook. In fact, with a score that has been hovering around 92, it is Facebook’s worst-performing site in North America.

    KEY FINDINGS

    Facebook’s content moderation site in Tampa, FL, which is operated by the professional services firm Cognizant, is its lowest-performing site in North America. It has never consistently enforced Facebook’s policies with 98 percent accuracy, as stipulated in Cognizant’s contract.
    For the first time, three former Facebook moderators in North America are breaking their nondisclosure agreements and going on the record to discuss working conditions on the site.
    A Facebook content moderator working for Cognizant in Tampa had a heart attack at his desk and died last year. Senior management initially discouraged employees from discussing the incident, for fear it would hurt productivity.
    Tampa workers have filed two sexual harassment cases against coworkers since April. They are now before the US Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
    Facilities at the Tampa site are often filthy, with workers reporting that the office’s only bathroom has repeatedly been found smeared with feces and menstrual blood.
    Workers have also found pubic hair and fingernails at their desks, along with other bodily waste.
    Verbal and physical fights at the office are common. So are reports of theft.
    The Phoenix site has been dealing with an infestation of bed bugs for the past three months.
    Facebook says it will conduct an audit of its partner sites and make other changes to promote the well-being of its contractors. It said it would consider making more moderators full-time employees in the future, and hopes to someday provide counseling for moderators after they leave.

    The stress of the job weighed on Utley, according to his former co-workers, who, like all Facebook contractors at the Tampa site, must sign a 14-page nondisclosure agreement.

    “The stress they put on him — it’s unworldly,” one of Utley’s managers told me. “I did a lot of coaching. I spent some time talking with him about things he was having issues seeing. And he was always worried about getting fired.”

    On the night of March 9th, 2018, Utley slumped over at his desk. Co-workers noticed that he was in distress when he began sliding out of his chair. Two of them began to perform CPR, but no defibrillator was available in the building. A manager called for an ambulance.

    The Cognizant site in Tampa is set back from the main road in an office park, and between the dim nighttime lighting and discreet exterior signage, the ambulance appears to have had trouble finding the building. Paramedics arrived 13 minutes after the first call, one worker told me, and when they did, Utley had already begun to turn blue.

    the secret lives of Facebook contractors in America. Since 2016, when the company came under heavy criticism for failing to prevent various abuses of its platform, Facebook has expanded its workforce of people working on safety and security around the world to 30,000. About half of those are content moderators, and the vast majority are contractors hired through a handful of large professional services firms. In 2017, Facebook began opening content moderation sites in American cities including Phoenix, Austin, and Tampa. The goal was to improve the accuracy of moderation decisions by entrusting them to people more familiar with American culture and slang.

    Cognizant received a two-year, $200 million contract from Facebook to do the work, according to a former employee familiar with the matter. But in return for policing the boundaries of free expression on one of the internet’s largest platforms, individual contractors in North America make as little as $28,800 a year. They receive two 15-minute breaks and a 30-minute lunch each day, along with nine minutes per day of “wellness” time that they can use when they feel overwhelmed by the emotional toll of the job. After regular exposure to graphic violence and child exploitation, many workers are subsequently diagnosed with post-traumatic stress disorder and related conditions.

    $9 million investment fraud scheme. According to the FBI, Movalia had falsely claimed to have access to shares of a fast-growing technology startup about to begin trading on the public market.

    The startup was Facebook.

    An entrance to the main workspace for Cognizant’s Tampa moderation site.
    Movalia was eventually fired, but employees I spoke with believed his tenure exemplified Cognizant’s approach to hiring moderators: find bodies wherever you can, ask as few questions as possible, and get them into a seat on the production floor where they can start working.

    The result is a raucous workplace where managers send regular emails to the staff complaining about their behavior on the site. Nearly every person I interviewed independently compared the Tampa office to a high school. Loud altercations, often over workplace romances, regularly take place between co-workers. Verbal and physical fights break out on a monthly basis, employees told me. A dress code was instituted to discourage employees from wearing provocative clothing to work — “This is not a night club,” read an email to all employees obtained by The Verge. Another email warned employees that there had been “numerous incidents of theft” on the property, including stolen food from the office refrigerator, food from vending machines, and employees’ personal items.

    Michelle Bennetti and Melynda Johnson both began working at the Tampa site in June 2018. They told me that the daily difficulty of moderating content, combined with a chaotic office environment, made life miserable.

    convicted of misdemeanor child abuse.) To Speagle’s knowledge, though, the crimes he saw every day never resulted in legal action being taken against the perpetrators. The work came to feel pointless, never more so than when he had to watch footage of a murder or child pornography case that he had already removed from Facebook.

    In June 2018, a month into his job, Facebook began seeing a rash of videos that purportedly depicted organs being harvested from children. (It did not.) So many graphic videos were reported that they could not be contained in Speagle’s queue.

    it will raise contractor wages by $3 an hour, make on-site counselors available during all hours of operation, and develop further programs for its contractor workforce. But the pay raises are not due to take effect until the middle of 2020, by which time many, if not most, of the current Tampa workforce will no longer work there. Turnover statistics could not be obtained. But few moderators I have spoken with make it to two years on the job — they either are fired for low accuracy scores, or quit over the working conditions. And so while the raises will be a boon to a future workforce, the contractors I spoke to are unlikely to benefit.

    Nor will the many contractors who have already left the job. As in Phoenix, former employees of the Tampa site described lasting emotional disturbances from their work — one for which neither Facebook nor Cognizant offers any support.

    I asked Chandra whether Facebook should hire more content moderators in house, rather than relying on big staffing companies. He told me that Facebook’s business changes so quickly that it might not be possible. But he did not rule it out.

    “I completely get the debate,” he said. “If anything I’m very empathetic to the entire conversation, having spent a lot of time with these people. I don’t think we have a better answer right now.”

    In the meantime, Facebook is building a “global resiliency team” tasked with improving the well-being of both full-time employees and contractors. Chris Harrison, who leads the team, told me that he aspires to build a wellness program that begins at the point of hiring. He wants to screen employees to gauge their psychological fitness — a move that might prevent someone like Shawn Speagle from being assigned to a queue filled with graphic violence — but says Facebook is still working to understand whether this is possible under employment law.

    a majority of its workforce. The system allows tech giants to save billions of dollars a year, while reporting record profits each quarter. Some vendors may turn out to mistreat their workers, threatening the reputation of the tech giant that hired them. But countless more stories will remain hidden behind nondisclosure agreements.

    In the meantime, tens of thousands of people around the world go to work each day at an office where taking care of the individual person is always someone

    In such a system, offices can still look beautiful. They can have colorful murals and serene meditation rooms. They can offer ping pong tables and indoor putting greens and miniature basketball hoops emblazoned with the slogan: “You matter.” But the moderators who work in these offices are not children, and they know when they are being condescended to. They see the company roll an oversized Connect 4 game into the office, as it did in Tampa this spring, and they wonder: When is this place going to get a defibrillator?

    (Cognizant did not respond to questions about the defibrillator.)

    I believe Chandra and his team will work diligently to improve this system as best as they can. By making vendors like Cognizant accountable for the mental health of their workers for the first time, and offering psychological support to moderators after they leave the company, Facebook can improve the standard of living for contractors across the industry.

    But it remains to be seen how much good Facebook can do while continuing to hold its contractors at arms’ length. Every layer of management between a content moderator and senior Facebook leadership offers another chance for something to go wrong — and to go unseen by anyone with the power to change it.

    “Seriously Facebook, if you want to know, if you really care, you can literally call me,” Melynda Johnson told me. “I will tell you ways that I think that you can fix things there. Because I do care. Because I really do not think people should be treated this way. And if you do know what’s going on there, and you’re turning a blind eye, shame on you.”

    Słuchajcie kretyni, "usiłowanie nieudolne" to powszechnie używane pojecie z dziedziny prawa karnego.
    Chodzi o art. 13 § 2 k.k. zgodnie z którym "Usiłowanie zachodzi także wtedy, gdy sprawca nie uświadamia sobie, że dokonanie jest niemożliwe ze względu na brak przedmiotu nadającego się do popełnienia na nim czynu zabronionego lub ze względu na użycie środka nie nadającego się do popełnienia czynu zabronionego."
