Milazzo: le donne dei lenzuoli contro la ‘bomba’ ecologica della raffineria

Milazzo (Messina). “Siamo vive per miracolo” dicono le nuove “donne dei lenzuoli” siciliane. Dopo il terrificante incendio nella raffineria del 27 settembre, non vogliono continuare a vivere nell’attesa di una catastrofe annunciata. Vent’anni fa, a Palermo, i lenzuoli furono esposti ai balconi contro le bombe mafiose. Oggi, una generazione dopo, tornano contro la bomba ecologica nel messinese.

Già alle 16 del 26 nei pressi della raffineria, l’aria puzzava molto più del solito. Diversi abitanti hanno dato l’allarme, ma senza risposta. Poche ore dopo, alle 00:45 del 27, scoppiava l’incendio: una luce abbagliante schiantava la notte fra nubi densissime di fumo. La gente si riversa in strada e fugge dove capita (l’autostrada è a poche centinaia di metri dal serbatoio in fiamme). Non c’è un piano d’emergenza. “Chiudete le finestre” è l’unica, rada, indicazione. Bravissimi i pompieri, che rischiando il tutto per tutto riescono a evitare il peggio, e l’antincendio della raffineria. Bravo il comandante del porto, che mette subito in sicurezza la rada. Carenti le altre istituzioni, chiaramente impreparate.

Le sostanze bruciano (decine di migliaia di litri) per almeno undici ore. Al momento in cui scrivo, l’incendio in forma attenuata continua ancora. La direzione della raffineria comunica che l’attività produttiva è tuttora in corso. I petrolieri rassicurano: nessuna conseguenza per ambiente, falda acquifera e popolazione. L’Arpa diffonde dati tranquillizzanti. Peccato che, per difetto di strumenti e personale (recente taglio dei fondi) siano dati estremamente parziali già in tempo di routine, figuriamoci in questa emergenza.

Siamo nelle mani di Dio” dicono i milazzesi, che la mattina dopo si congratulavano a vicenda di esserci ancora. Dio però dovrebbe provvedere subito a monitorare l’inquinamento “normale” e quello di ora, fornendo i mezzi adeguati all’Arpa e denunciando chi li ha negati finora. Dovrebbe preparare subito un piano di emergenza e di evacuazione adeguati e ai termini di legge. Dovrebbe nominare una commissione di esperti indipendenti per accertare davvero gli effetti sanitari e ambientali e far chiarezza sulle responsabilità. Potrebbe trasferire la raffineria in qualche remota isola deserta, dove non si rischia la pelle di ventimila esseri umani. Fra, l’altro riconvertire chi ancora lavora nell’area potrebbe avere un costo molto inferiore ai danni attuali: questo spezzerebbe i denti al vecchissimo ricatto occupazionale con cui il mostro ha sempre imbavagliato le coscienze e le paure delle famiglie.

Se non ci pensa il buon Dio (i politici non ci hanno pensato, finora) è bene che i cittadini si diano una mossa, ora che rimuovere il problema – come per tanti anni s’è fatto – è più difficile del solito. Alcune donne stanno cominciando ad esporre alle finestre e ai balconi delle lenzuola bianche, che rapidamente si tingono d’inquinamento. Un altro “comitato dei lenzuoli” in Sicilia? L’ultimo fu più di vent’anni fa, dopo la morte dei giudici, contro la mafia. “E perché, a modo suo non è mafia anche questa?” mugugna qualcuno qui. Diamogli una risposta. Sollecitiamo il Parlamento europeo e quello nazionale intervenire immediatamente nelle forme più opportune.

FSF Blogs: Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: October 3

Join the FSF and friends on Friday, October 3, from 2pm to 5pm EDT (18:00 to 21:00 UTC) to help improve the Free Software Directory by adding new entries and updating existing ones. We will be on IRC in the #fsf channel on freenode.


Tens of thousands of people visit directory.fsf.org each month to discover free software. Each entry in the Directory contains a wealth of useful information, from basic category and descriptions, to providing detailed info about version control, IRC channels, documentation, and licensing info that has been carefully checked by FSF staff and trained volunteers.


While the Free Software Directory has been and continues to be a great resource to the world over the past decade, it has the potential of being a resource of even greater value. But it needs your help!


If you are eager to help and you can't wait or are simply unable to make it onto IRC on Friday, our participation guide will provide you with all the information you need to get started on helping the Directory today!

Riccardo Mottola: Improvements in GNUstep's native window look

In the past weeks, quite some polish was added in windows support.

First, there was a bug affecting Popup Menus and contextual menus that affected only certain computers. It was fixed.




Then the controls were not properly initialized. Native file-dialogs, for example, as well as upcoming print dialogs (work in progress by Gregory) did not fit the theme properly. On XP, Window 7 and Windows 8 they should follow the native look, instead they always got the "Win 95" look creating a strange mix.

The fix requires initializing Windows' controls. I put the initialization code inside the WinUX theme loading. If it will not prove safe, then it needs to be moved into NSApplication. Furthermore, an XML resource file to enable the correct loading.




I really does look nice, doesn't it?

Nick Clifton: September 2014 GNU Toolchain Update

Hi Guys,

  In this month's news we have:
  
  * The GDB project is removing support for the following platforms:
    - MIPS IRIX (mips*-sgi-irix5*, mips*-sgi-irix6*)
    - Alpha Tru64 (alpha*-*-osf*)

    This only affect code maintained by GDB project (not binutils or GCC).  Also, support for any other target on MIPS (including embedded ones) will be maintained as is.

  * GCC now supports the MIPS R6 and ARM CORTEX-A17 architecture variants.

  * The is a new gcc attribute called no_reorder.  This tells GCC not to change the order of the marked functions and variables, relative to each other.  (Unmarked functions and variables can still be reordered).  This attribute is similar to the -fno-topleve-reorder option, except that it only applies to the marked symbols.

  * There is a new GCC command line optionn: -freport-bug

    This tells GCC to collect and dump debug information into temporary file if an internal compiler error occurs.  This information can be helpful to whomever has to fix the bug.

Cheers
  Nick

FSF Blogs: Recap of Friday Free Software Directory IRC meetup: September 26

Today's Friday Free Software Directory (FSD) IRC Meeting was focused on bug fixes. In particular, we fixed some HTTPS errors we were having with images, we found and deleted the rare spam entry or two that gets submitted, and we did some other minor house cleaning tasks. There were also some important conversations on what constitutes "corresponding source" of a work as well as further discussions of our art licensing policy. Free software licensing is an important and recurring topic in our weekly IRC meetings, but this week's discussion were especially interesting and thought provoking.

You, too, can join in on the fun. Find out how to attend our Friday Free Software Directory IRC Meetings by checking our blog or subscribing to the RSS feed.

FSF Blogs: Interview with Bitcoin Armory

Bitcoin Armory

In this edition, we conducted an email-based interview with Alan Reiner, core developer of Bitcoin Armory, a bitcoin wallet focused on security. Bitcoin Armory is licensed under the terms of GNU Affero General Public License version 3, or (at your option) any later version.

Tell us about yourself and Bitcoin Armory

I am the CEO of Armory Technologies, Inc and core developer of Armory Bitcoin Wallet which is a popular, free software wallet application focused on security for enterprise business and advanced users. It was the first and only Bitcoin wallet to make "cold storage" (offline wallets) accessible through an intuitive user interface, and is one of the most trusted tools for securing and managing large bitcoin investments. I have degrees in applied mathematics and engineering mechanics, and additional background in statistics, data mining, and cryptography. I spent seven years developing image & video processing algorithms at a physics lab in Maryland before switching to Armory full-time and founding Armory Technologies, Inc in mid-2013. I became one of the top Bitcoin experts in the community, and a trusted source for security best practices and innovation. My goal is to pioneer the world of Bitcoin wallets, and make high-security easy to practice even for "regular" users.

What inspired you to create Bitcoin Armory?

There were no other Bitcoin wallets that provided the security features I wanted. I knew how to implement them, so I did it! It turns out other people wanted it, too.

How are people using it?

Of all the DIY Bitcoin wallets out there, Armory is the one focused most squarely on security. The software is trusted by some of the biggest Bitcoin holders to keep their coins secure, featuring backup, offline, and multi-sig features not available elsewhere.

What features do you think really sets Bitcoin Armory apart from similar software?

The ability to manage wallets/crypto keys that are kept on computers that are not internet-connected, yet be able to gather signatures from offline devices in a secure manner. And recently, the ability to do "multi-signature" transactions without a third-party service (all locally-run instances of our software). You can even combine the two and do anonymous cold-multisig. These are critical features for major investors and enterprise users and no other software has it.

Why did you choose the AGPL as Bitcoin Armory's license?

We wanted to make the project free software, as we don't believe that a piece of software as security-sensitive as ours could survive as a proprietary application. The ability for code auditing is critical when people perceive a risk that the developers could inject code to steal their money. However, we didn't want to limit our monetization options by picking a permissive license. AGPL gives us the ability to assert some control (and incentivises dual-licensing) while allowing us to keep all the source code free.

How can users (technical or otherwise) help contribute to Bitcoin Armory?

Bitcoin Armory software is now maintained by Armory Technologies, Inc. which is a for-profit startup that will focus on the needs of advanced and enterprise users. We have accepted code contributions before, but I doubt few would contribute anymore without being on our payroll. At this time we have 5 full-time developers, and we haven't had a non-paid contribution to the codebase in months.

If someone is interested in contributing, we'd encourage them to contact us and send us their resume. Due to the nature and sensitivity of our software, there's actually a pretty high learning curve to get over to be able to make meaningful contributions to the code (that are both effective and secure).

What's the next big thing for Bitcoin Armory?

We are working on some technical advancements, as well as promoting our enterprise services. On the technical side, we are focusing on multi-user encryption features that would allow enterprise clients to appoint a set of employees to manage each signing device, without any one employee having exclusive access. Hardware Security Modules (HSMs) are typically used for this purpose, but are extremely expensive ($20k+), and we wanted to be able to provide a pure-software solution that provides most of the same benefits on consumer hardware, especially for small businesses.

Further, we are ironing out our enterprise services, which will involve custom adaptations and plugins to the base free software project, as well as security consulting and training. There's a lot brewing and not enough time to do it all!

looks human, and detecting text that has been written by a robot. Robots will
continue to get better, and will eventually fool all of us....

En 2006, la policía irrumpía en el proveedor de alojamiento del popular tracker de BitTorrent The Pirate Bay y confiscaba todos los servidores. Pese a todo la página siguió funcionando y, con vistas a evitar una situación similar en el futuro, en 2012 los responsables de la misma aseguraron que TPB ya no tendría servidores que requisar: su lugar estaría, desde entonces, en la nube.

Ahora, dos años después, desde Torrent Freak publican más detalles sobre la estructura interna que utiliza el tracker. Sabemos, por ejemplo, que en la actualidad el sitio funciona sobre 21 máquinas virtuales contratados por todo el mundo y no tienen hardware propio (específicamente servidores). En total todas ellas suman 182 GB de RAM, 94 CPU y 620 GB de espacio, aunque dicen no utilizarlo al completo.

Os Mutantes – Discografia – 13 Albuns Completos [mp3]

Os_Mutantes_-_Os_Mutantes-FrenteOs Mutantes (“The Mutants”) is an amazing influential Brazilian band from the Tropicalismo movement. Founded in 1966, Os Mutantes played strange popy psycheledic/progressive rock, importing in Brazil sounds coming from the US, the UK and the rest of Europe at the time, integrated with the new sounds and explorations of the Tropicalismo movement (special mention to

 
, beautiful cover from French Françoise Hardy). Fantastic stuff!

This compilation contains 13 albums, and is presented as their full discography.

Get the file: Os Mutantes – Discografia – 13 Albuns Completos (194 tracks, mp3)

Reader's Digest

renewal of democratic politics

After the carnival like excitement around the Scottish referendum the clich? that is echoing around mainstream media discourse is that that politics in the UK can now never be the same again. That new levels of voter and popular participation in a political process has surpassed anything we have seen in recent history.

Some of this is true and the achievement must be attributed almost entirely to the Yes campaign. It was a genuinely grassroots popular movement that refused to be cowed by the exclusively financialist neo-liberal arguments of the No campaign whose approach was one of quite astonishing lack of vision, energy and imagination. The final result cannot detract (indeed should be separated) from the new levels of participation that emerged.

But we are left with the question of whether anything can be done to keep this participatory spirit alive? Can we go beyond the Yes/No binary. And say thank you Scotland for reminding us what politics should be. Now please help us in build something new together. Lets not kid ourselves. Our Scottish brethren will only accept that proposition if it comes from the grass roots rather than the political establishment. Sadly the only truly energised grass roots political movement south of the boarder is UKIP- this is not the generous civic nationalism but mean spirited little Englanderism.

Now the colorful inclusive platform of a referendum has been wheeled away and the political class begins its wrangling, will the popular energy also evaporate? I fear that it will - In part because of a factor that we are yet to find a way to manage and that is the fact that in general -we campaign in inspiring poetry but we govern in boring prose-

Are political publics in the end only evanescent entities conjured into existence by particular issues that generate strong desires or fears, only to dissolve as quickly as they arise? What happened to the grass roots movements that brought Obama to power.. so visible in the campaign so absent in the processes of governance ?

Without wishing to fetishise technology, in both the Scottish referendum and Obama’s election, social media played an important role in mobilising new levels of participation. Are there lessons to be learned from frequently denigrated clicktivist platforms such as MoveOn and Avaz? They have not yet succeeded except in isolated instances but there attempts to generate new publics through building committment slowly through incrementalising small levels of participation into something larger shouldn’t be entirely dismissed.

The concessions forced upon Westminster (when it finally woke up) mean that in the coming months and years this dis-united kingdom will be struggling to re-imagine its version of the nation state. Lets hope that’s Scotland’s example of a “civic nationalism” (any Scottish resident had a vote) based on common goods will percolate into the debates to come. It certainly wont happen of its own accord or through the usual party political mechanisms. It will only happen if those who share the aspirations of Scotland’s YESers can ignite a similar level of imagination and aspiration South of the boarder. Its not easy to see how but as the arguments begin making common cause with Scotland’s progressive Yes campaigners might be a place to start.

Any ideas….

Museo dell'Informatica funzionante

Per Gianni “BBK”

Hai voluto fare di testa tua, come al solito, spiazzandoci tutti. Ed ora eccomi qua, a cercare di scrivere un comunicato che mai avrei voluto scrivere, per ricordare te, meraviglioso pazzo amico mio, compagno di tante risate e progetti e divertimento e idee ed un sacco di altre cose. Conserveremo la tua memoria come ogni pezzo del Museo, con cura, dedizione, gioia e naturalezza. Ci hai tante volte aiutato, avremmo voluto poterti aiutare. Cercheremo di riempire adesso questo enorme vuoto impegnandoci meglio e di piu’ in quello che, in fondo, era anche il tuo Museo, una cosa in cui credevi tanto e che ti dava gioia. Ciao Gianni, ci mancherai tantissimo… – asbesto, Museo dell’Informatica Funzionante, Freaknet Medialab, Poetry Hacklab, Dyne.org

Catania come metafora della triste Italia dei Mario Ciancio

Molti anni fa, a un ricevimento romano, il cavaliere del lavoro Rendo (uno dei quattro “cavalieri dell’apocalisse mafiosa” denunciati da Fava, dalla Chiesa e Carlo Palermo) si avvicinò a un ministro col solito sorriso e la mano tesa. Il ministro – Spadolini – lo squadra. Poi senza una parola si volta e se ne va. Quello resta là, col sorriso gelato e la mano per aria. Ecco, la storia dei cavalieri è finita in quel momento lì. Rendo, nonostante le inchieste, non fu mai arrestato e i Rendo contano ancora parecchio (negli Usa, in Ungheria, in Est Europa). Ma il potere assoluto, nel loro povero paese, non l’hanno avuto mai più.

Questa è l’aria che tira in questi giorni nella capitale dell’Italia nascosta, che è Catania. Non sappiamo se Mario Ciancio, alla fine di una delle inchieste che lo riguardano, subirà sentenza; del resto noi, alla sua età, non gli auguriamo certo la galera. Ma potrebbe anche arrivare il momento, in nome del popolo italiano, in cui un magistrato emettesse, o per una cosa o per l’altra, una condanna. A un minuto di carcere, non più: tanto da lasciar dire ai superstiti, anche se tardi e inutilmente, che giustizia è fatta.

Cosa porta a pensieri del genere, in questa fine d’estate? La cronaca giudiziaria, certamente. Ma soprattutto il fatto che da qualche tempo in qua non si sente altro che ”Ciancio? Mai visto, mai conosciuto!. Giornalisti, notabili, cortigiani, affaristi, tutti sotto il liotru prendono le distanze. Chi rozzamente, chi con letteraria eleganza. “Ma chi erano i fascisti, in Italia?” si chiedeva Churchill dopo il ’45. Lo stesso, i cronisti futuri studiando le rovine di Catania (speriamo metaforiche) per le generazioni che verranno.

I quarant’anni di Ciancio, in realtà, sono stati una tirannia condivisa. Tirannia perché nella città, per quarant’anni, non c’è stato né sindaco né podestà (che poi qui differivano solo di nome), né vescovo né prefetto, né toghe né deputati; gli stessi boss della mafia, massima istituzione locale, comandavano fino a un certo punto, dovendosi rapportare a interessi ben superiori ai loro. E condivisa perché tutti costoro, e molti altri, non obbedivano a bocca storta, violentati, ma con gioiosa sollecitudine, certi di fare il bene proprio e della patria.

Immaturità democratica, ignoranza? Certo, di democratico qui non ci fu mai niente, salvo qualche occasionale rivolta di plebe o ciò che nei tempi moderni le assomiglia; noi votiamo, a Catania, solo perché gli americani, conquistata la città, c’imposero con le armi la democrazia.

Ma la spiegazione antropologica non convince. Perché Catania è città coltissima, ha dozzine di scrittori e scrittrici che vanno sui giornali, opinion maker di Repubblica, un’università del quindicesimo secolo (ma i più accesi dicono dei tempi di Caronda) e uno stuolo di intellettuali e baroni in grado di disquisire su qualunque argomento. E con tanta cervella in giro, come ha fatto il povero Ciancio a imporre un’egemonia di quarant’anni su cotanta città? Professori di Ciancio (“Qua, la mafia non esiste!”), avvocati di Ciancio, pensatori di Cancio (“Fava? Storia di fimmine, fu!”), destr-sinistr di Ciancio, persino uno stile architettonico ciancesco. Colpa degli Ercolano-Santapaola?

No, no. Niente capri espiatori. La verità è che a Catania, per quarant’anni, non c’è stato un Ciancio solo ma ce ne sono stati ventimila: tutti coloro cioè che hanno messo ogni mattina una cravatta, se la sono annodata con serietà e attenzione e si sono guardati allo specchio soddisfatti di sé e della propria importanza. La borghesia mafiosa, dicevano gli antichi maestri.

Eccezioni pochissime, e quelle poche strane e originali. Dall’ingegnere Mignemi, coi suoi su-e-giù in via Etnea col suo cartello “no alla speculazione” al collo, ai preti di miseria come padre Greco, agl’ingegneri ribelli come Pippo D’Urso, ai professori selvatici come Nino Recupero, ai giornalisti scherniti come Giuseppe Fava; ai parrocchiani di don Resca che denunciava Santapaola al posto di polizia e magistrati, ai volontari del Gapa, ai poveri giornalisti dei Siciliani, ai pochi compagni fedeli come Cosentino e Centineo; ai giudici come Scidà, bruciato dalla pietà per i ragazzi dei ghetti; e pochi ancora. Tutti dimenticati, morti e vivi, allegramente digeriti dalla città grassa e crudele, non puttana simpatica come diceva Fava ma prostituta degli occupanti come nei centoventi giorni – qui, furono quarant’anni – di Pasolini.

L’onore della città, in questa interminabile occupazione – che non è terminata: il dopo-Ciancio sarà “democratico” ma non meno feroce – s’è rifugiato nei poveri e nei ragazzi. I poveri di Catania, ferocemente abbandonati all’ignoranza e ai loro ghetti, in guerra ogni santo giorno per il pranzo o la cena, tiranneggiati dalla mafia e costretti a fornirle, come in un tributo ottomano, parte dei propri giovani per le sue imprese, eppure si ribellarono, nell’84 e nel ’93, sia pure per pochi giorni. I giovani e giovanissimi, in quattro generazioni successive, crearono movimenti e si batterono, soli e senza potere, come leoni. Non furono colpa loro le sconfitte (incontri ai quattro angoli d’Italia emigrati fierissimi “ero nei Siciliani”) né l’orrore sociale che, un decennio dopo l’altro, spremè ferocemente sangue e anima di quella che era stata la più allegra e spavalda città del Sud.

Va bene: hai letto con civile attenzione, amico mio romano o milanese, ma ora cominci a chiederti: “E io che c’entro”? Ma vedi: in realtà abbiamo parlato di Roma e Milano. Catania e la Sicilia sono state un punto d’inizio, ma ciò che era nato qui adesso è compiutamente e pienamente – perlomeno – italiano. Dell’Utri, eletto a Milano, ha governato l’intera Italia (con altri, famosi e non) per un pieno ventennio; il suo “governo”, se è vero che Berlusconi è ancora socio in maggioranza, in un certo qual senso dura ancora. Questo nella politica, che è lo strato superficiale del potere: ma pensa agli “imprenditori” e alla finanza, a quelli che comandano davvero. Quanta percentuale di questo potere è “mafioso”?

Mafioso”, bada bene, non significa “che spara e ammazza” (per questo ci sono dei tecnici dedicati) ma che nel suo complesso, esercita una potestà sempre più piena e assoluta, non rifuggendo dalla violenza ma usandola con precisione chirurgica quando conviene. Il Sistema (che chiamare mafioso è ormai un po’ obsoleto) è un mix di meccanismi sociali, egemonie culturali, violenze mirate e consenso artificialmente indotto. Noi, quaggiù, l’abbiamo visto crescere, a Palermo e Catania, ben prima di Berlusconi. Noi non ce l’abbiamo fatto a fermarlo, e ora è un problema vostro.

Fight the hype with this Apple Watch graphic

Opened a tech news site today? If so, you're probably up to your neck in buzz about today's Apple keynote. Front and center were Apple's new devices, the Apple Watch and iPhone 6. They're pretty and they're trendy, but, as we've been saying for years, those sleek metal finishes hold some of the most sophisticated and unjust restrictions around. On top of that, the company that sells them is a patent bully solely focused on control of the industry and its customers.

Fight the hype: share this image on your networks today, while the Apple Watch and iPhone 6 are in the news cycle. Right click on it and choose save, then upload to social media. (See our opinions on different social media platforms.)

5 reasons you should never buy an Apple Watch

Apple's devices are chock-full of Digital Restrictions Management (DRM). They won't allow you to replace the operating system with a free one, or even to install 3rd-party free software applications. The company uses its massive arsenal of patents to bully software developers that make things that resemble Apple's products, even by accident. Despite all this and more, most people have no idea what Apple's up to.

To learn more details behind the five reasons, and to take action by telling Apple you won't stand for their abuse, check out DefectiveByDesign.org/Apple.

Unlike Apple, we don't have millions to burn on commercials. But we can build a movement for digital freedom and self-determination from the ground up. We need to use tools like this image to show our friends and communities -- and Apple -- that we know what these devices are really all about: control.

With the support of the Free Software Foundation, developers are bringing the free software mobile operating system Replicant to more devices all the time. See the list of currently supported devices or help the project expand it with a donation for more test devices.
