Dead Prez




Bigger Than, Mama and The Doctor?s Orders present DEAD PREZ, Plus support from Subculture Sage, Iron Braydz and Russ Ryan.
Live: Dead Prez, Iron Braydz, Russ Ryan

7pm ? 11pm Wednesday 29th October 2014

@ Jazz Café, Parkway, Camden, London NW1
£18.50 Advance Tickets

There are scores of Hip-Hop bangers but there is only ?Hip-Hop? banger and the Dead Prez classic is always 100% guaranteed to light up any dance-floor.

As the inspiration to the name of ?Bigger Than Festival? it is only right that they are part of the line up of the events first year.

Delivering hard-hitting beats, politically aware rhymes, deft lyricism and strong song concepts, Dead Prez emerged in 2000 as one of rap?s most politically strident outfits.

Stic.Man and M-1?s music provided a voice for the voiceless, a sobering look at the global power structure that was crippling billions of people internationally and millions of Americans domestically.

With south London?s own Iron Braydz on support this show is not to be missed!

Matthew and me




Titanic yet ethereal, chaotic yet haunting, Matthew and Me create alternative pop like no other band.
Live: Matthew and Me

Titanic yet ethereal, chaotic yet haunting, Matthew and Me create alternative pop like no other band.
Their songs see beginnings of contemplative hush transform into leviathan choruses, capable of filling
cathedrals. Lead singer, Matthew Board's haunting vocals evoke a magical quality to their music,
adding an otherworldly layer to the band?s sound.

Forming in the small town of Totnes, in the heart of South Devon, Matthew and Me began life as a
vehicle for Matthew Board to materialise songs he'd written. Over time the band became an
inseparable unit of friends, gradually captivating more and more music lovers in the South West and
beyond.

Nothing quite prepares you for Matthew and Me's live show. The drama, intensity, sonic precision, and
overwhelming jubilation in their live performances is seldom seen from an unsigned band. Often
choosing settings reflective of their sound, they've performed in churches, glass houses, boats and
underground caverns. During 2014 the band also played at Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape,
X and Y Festival, Somersault Festival, and Port Eliot Festival.

On November 10th the band release their new single 'Patterns', which was premiered on Huw
Stephen's Radio 1 show. The band will tour the UK in November and December in support of the
release. More new music will follow in spring 2015.

Saturday 25th October, its time for some more LNDRY thanks to Soapbox Events and Chinese Laundry, this time with Dave Clarke (UK) and Some Blonde DJ.

Dave Clarke, known as the Baron of Techno, is renowned for pushing the boundaries of what techno and electro can be dropping remixes ranging from John Foxx?s seminal synth-pop gem ?Underpass? to Gesaffelstein, Detroit Grand Pubas and Octave One. His sets dance along the cutting blade of techno and electro, backed up by a seasoned bag of DJ tricks in which his early hip hop roots clearly show. Aptly nicknamed The Man In Black, Clarke blends into the background upon arrival and lets his music do the talking, so make sure you come down and see what it has to say.

Keeping things bumping in the laundry will be the yound protégé from Melbourne, Some Blonde DJ. Inspired by the sounds of Steve Aoki, Nervo, Sven Vath and Fatboy Slim, we are sure to be in for a big one, so make sure that you don?t miss it.

==> COMMUNICATIONS IN MAJOR SEISMIC INCIDENTS IN CENTRAL US SUBJECT OF
EXERCISE; REPORT CITES WINKLINK, AMATEUR RADIO

The Central United States Earthquake Consortium (CUSEC) was formed in
1983, and has received funding support from the U.S. Department of
Homeland Security (DHS) and FEMA. The New Madrid Fault is a regional
threat with national implications. CUSEC Member States are those most
vulnerable to the effects of earthquakes in the region: Alabama,
Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Mississippi, Missouri, and
Tennessee. Its CAPSTONE-14 initiative was a three-year, multi-state
scope of planning and preparedness activities culminating in a major,
multi-state earthquake Exercise in June, 2014.

In its after-action report, in a section on Communications, CUSEC
recognized that a major earthquake situation could cut off conventional
means of communication, and has emphasized the need for effective
alternative communication technologies and capabilities for use when
normal ones go down. Partners must be able to communicate with
emergency operations centers and field locations for security,
situational awareness and operational progress.

The report cited satellite communications as an alternate service, but
noted they were costly to acquire and sometimes difficult and
challenging to operate. "Other means of alternate communications
include the National Warning System (NAWAS), and Amateur Radio (ham
radio) operations," the report said, and referred to FEMA Administrator
Craig Fugate's July comments on the resiliency and value of Amateur
Radio. A "critical task" of the CAPSTONE-14 initiative was identified:
"Utilize Amateur Radio assets to establish communications with local,
state, federal and private sector partners."

One of the report recommendations was to "establish standards for
various electronic resource request forms that meet the file size
limitations of email and amateur band radio capabilities." The report
noted that during CAPSTONE-14, states "initiated interstate
communications utilizing Radio Amateur Civil Emergency Services (RACES)
and successfully communicated via voice (audible communications), chat
(text communications) and RMS Express/Winlink radio email system (email
communications)." And "Winlink communications ultimately proved as a
successful means to share . . . request forms," even though initial
attempts were unsuccessful, due to file size. Operators implemented
file size and compatibility/standardization fixes and initial problems
were solved. The report concluded that "Regularly scheduled training
and functional exercises conducted by RACES and MARS operators will
improve speed and understanding during real world emergency
operations." Click here
for the
complete report.

Winlink Administrator Steve Waterman, K4CJX, said "the lesson learned
is always the same: essential is training by exercising the systems to
be used in an earthquake disaster scenario." And, "this is why civil
authorities are now incorporating Amateur Radio volunteers to assist
with alternate communications methodologies, especially Winlink, and
why MARS support of civil authorities is so important." Waterman added
"Winlink 2000 is becoming more familiar to our civil authorities, and
thus providing an opportunity for building strong relationships between
these organizations and Amateur Radio volunteers. The rest of the story
is up to us." - Thanks to Steve Waterman, K4CJX, Winlink Development
Team

[The New Madrid Seismic Zone (NMSZ) is responsible for three of the
largest earthquakes in U.S. history, during 1811-12. These quakes were
felt strongly over 50,000 square miles and moderately across 1 million
square miles, according to the U.S. Geological Survey (USGS). The
affected area was therefore more than twice that of the 1964 Great
Alaskan Earthquake, the largest earthquake in U.S. history, and
approximately 10 times that of the 1906 San Francisco Earthquake.
Although it has been more than two centuries since the last major
earthquake along the NMSZ, the threat of a catastrophic earthquake in
the region has not waned. Due to population density and current
infrastructure, a similar earthquake today would be devastating.-

==> BOULDER COUNTY (COLORADO) ARES NOTED ON SHERIFF'S OFFICE FACEBOOK
PAGE

Jack Ciaccia, WM0G, ARRL Colorado Section Manager, informed the ARES
E-Letter of two postings

of the Boulder County Sheriff's Office to its Facebook page, reflecting
the agency's value it places on the ARES group's support:

"Public safety is a cooperative effort that requires planning,
training, and thoughtful resource management on many levels. We
collaborate with many partner agencies such as fire protection
districts, rescue groups and BCARES [Boulder County ARES] to provide
the best in public service for Boulder County. Many partner agencies
rely on volunteers willing to devote their resources to training, and
event deployment. BCARES is a volunteer organization of licensed
amateur radio operators that we can call upon for assistance. For more
information on this volunteer organization visit:
www.bouldercountyares.org. "

"Scott Whitehead [KA0QPT] of the Boulder County Sheriff's Office
received a Public Service Communication Commendation from the American
Radio Relay League in recognition of his meritorious service in
providing aid to an injured hiker July 21, 2014. The award was
presented today by Jack Ciaccia, PIO for BCARES, the local ARRL
organization. Scott heard an incoming dispatch call from a Colorado
Springs area Ham operator relaying information on an injured party in a
remote location. Scott has been a Ham operator since 1983. He used his
knowledge of area radio repeaters to make radio contact with the Ham
operator with the injured party, and guided rescue workers to their
location. Great job Scott!"

==> LETTERS: ARES GROUPS AND INDIVIDUALS SHOULD PROTECT PASSWORDS

The ARRL released a news article recently concerning the hacking of a
server in the League's network late last month. That article can be
found here
. My
professional background is in digital forensic investigations and
includes teaching in the Digital Forensics and Cyber Security program
at Valencia College in Orlando (Florida) so I'd like to make some cyber
security suggestions to readers.

If your password on arrl.org hasn't been changed
since before early 2010, you need to change it now. If your password is
newer than early 2010, I'd recommend that it be changed as a
precautionary measure. If you've utilized the same password on arrl.org
and other websites, especially if those other
websites are banking and finance related, you
need to change the passwords on those sites as well.

Hackers will use passwords from one compromised website to attempt to
access the person's accounts on other websites. Ideally each website
that you access should have a unique password; likewise, each email
account you have should have a unique password.
Passwords should be made up of a combination of upper case letters,
lower case letters, numbers, and symbols including:
!@#$%^&*()_+=-.?<>,. (note: not all websites will accept all of those
symbols in a password). Passwords should not be such easily guessed
things as the names of relatives and pets. The best passwords are
random strings rather than names and words and should be 8 characters
or longer.

Now the question that this immediately generates is how do I remember
dozens or hundreds of random passwords? The answer is that you don't;
you only need to memorize one that is a master password used by
software that secures all of the information for all of your
email/website accounts. There are many such programs available, both
paid and free, that can securely protect your passwords on your home
computer, your mobile devices such as smartphones and tablets, and on a
flash drive so you can have them available wherever you are.

Because everyone's needs are different, I won't advise using any
particular solution. I will, however, give you an example of a free
solution for PCs that has also been ported to most other platforms. The
software is named "Password Safe" and is available at no cost from:
http://passwordsafe.sourceforge.net/ (click on the "Download latest
version" found on that page to access the program itself).
http://pwsafe.org/relatedprojects.shtml has information on ports of
Password Safe to other platforms. Again this is not an endorsement of
this program, just an example of what is available.

One of the Motions I prepared for the July 2014 ARRL Board Meeting was
for the creation of an IT Strategic Planning Committee. The committee
would be tasked with examining the existing Information Technology
operations of the League and creating a strategic plan for addressing
current and future needs. The committee would be composed of Directors
and Vice Directors having a current background in Information
Technology. An edited Motion was passed, directing the Administration
and Finance Committee of the Board to study establishing the IT
Strategic Planning Committee and provide recommendations to the Board
at the January 2015 meeting. I'll report back when I know more. -- ARRL
Southeastern Division Director Doug Rehman, K4AC, k4ac@arrl.org

==> MED EMERGENCY IN WASHINGTON'S HIGH MOUNTAIN FOREST

On the last Sunday of summer--another beautiful, cloudless day at the
site high in the central Cascade Mountains of Washington state--two
hams had just fired up their station to prepare for a second day of
contest operation in the Washington State QSO Party, better known as
the Salmon Run.

About 0845, a motorcyclist rode into the remote camp. He told them that
his friend had broken a leg in an accident just a short distance up the
unpaved Forest Service road. He asked if the campers would please use
their cell phones to call an ambulance. The hams explained that,
unfortunately, they'd already checked and had no cellular service
available at the site. They told him they did have ham radio
communications, and would be able to get help through that service. The
biker thanked them and rode back to his injured friend.

The contest team -- Robert Grinnell, KD7WNV and Tim Kane, K7ANE -- are
both residents of the Seattle area, and members of the Mike & Key ARC.
After three years of contesting together on the western side of the
state, this was their first contest "expedition" on the eastern side of
the mountains, where they'd situated their station on a score-doubling
county line.

At the moment the rider approached them, Tim had selected a spot on 20
meters near the suggested contest frequency and was ensuring proper
operation and tuning of the station. Robert was assembling a new
tri-band yagi that they hoped to use later that day.

They quickly considered how best to obtain help. While the HF station
was already in operation and chances were good that they would be able
to contact someone somewhere, they knew that 9-1-1 systems are
localized, and a distant party might have difficulty reaching the right
agency. A local contact in one of the two counties could just dial
9-1-1 directly. They had VHF/UHF rigs in their trucks, but being from
out of the area, did not have any local repeaters programmed. Robert
had a few-years-old copy of the ARRL Repeater Directory along, but some
listings would be archaic. That limitation, compounded with the time it
would take to program each repeater, and the doubtful chances that
someone would be using or monitoring a repeater at that time on a
Sunday morning, did not bode well for quickly making a local contact.

They decided that Tim would stay on HF, and Robert would try for a
local contact. After a quick check of the 75 and 40 meter bands, both
of which were fairly quiet, Tim found the SOARA (South Orange ARA,
Mission Viejo, California) net operating on 7200 kHz. He considered
using "Mayday" or "Pan" emergency calls, but decided that "Break Break
Break with a Medical Emergency" would be more readily understood.

After two calls, Louis Frank, KG6FCT, responded, and Tim had him move
up 3 kHz, away from the net operation. Louis was at his home, east of
Sacramento, California. Tim explained the situation, and Robert passed
along detailed location information. They asked Louis to telephone the
Washington State Patrol, or a sheriff for either of the two counties,
and request that an ambulance be dispatched.

With contact made and the process underway via HF, Robert ceased
efforts at a local contact, and they decided he should drive up to the
accident scene, about a quarter mile distant. They quickly chose a 2
meter simplex frequency on which to maintain communications between
them, with Robert on his mobile rig and Tim with an HT at the campsite.

Louis first tried his area 9-1-1 dispatcher, who said he couldn't
transfer the call to the out-of-state jurisdictions. He then tried the
4-1-1 information operator, but only got administrative numbers that
didn't answer on a Sunday morning, and just referred the caller to
9-1-1 for emergencies.

Tim continued monitoring the HF frequency. Having not heard their
earlier communications, a Washington state contest station began
calling CQ just one kHz up from where they were standing by, and was
bleeding over badly. Tm contacted him, explained the situation, and
asked him to please move up band a bit. In the best ham tradition, the
station immediately agreed and moved.

Upon reaching the accident scene, Robert was informed that one of the
bikers had managed to get one bar of signal on his cell phone, and had
advised the victim's wife back in the Seattle area of the accident.
She, too, was now working on getting medical help.

Through his persistence, Louis finally obtained a number for the
Kittitas County Sheriff's Office (KCSO), which was answered, and he
relayed the situation and request. As fate would have it, the victim's
wife was on another line with the dispatch center, having just gotten
through as well.

The KCSO dispatcher asked Louis for additional information about the
accident, the victim, and whether the ambulance would need to be
four-wheel-drive to reach the accident scene. Louis relayed the queries
to Tim, who in turn asked Robert at the accident scene. They then
passed the responses back to the dispatcher, and told them that 4WD was
not needed. The victim was in pain but his condition otherwise did not
seem serious.

Once KCSO advised that the ambulance was en route, Louis, Tim and
Robert maintained the frequencies, in case further action was required
or information needed to be passed.

Robert suggested to the motorcyclists that one of them ride down the
dirt road to the highway, wait for the ambulance, and lead it to the
accident scene, which they did.

About thirty minutes later an aid car from the Kittitas Valley Fire and
Rescue Department drove by the camp to the accident scene. It was
followed by a USFS brush fire truck and a Sheriff's cruiser.Ten minutes
later a second Kittitas aid car also arrived.

At the accident scene the Emergency Medical Techs assessed the rider's
injuries, stabilized his broken leg, and administered an IV. They
transferred him to a gurney and into the ambulance. The emergency
response vehicles then started their return to the hospital, some forty
miles away. The motorcyclist who originally approached the hams came by
the camp, and thanked them for their help.

By 0940, barely an hour since it started, all was back to normal. Tim
passed the info and thanks back to Louis in central California. He
returned to his SoCal net, while the Washington team returned to 20
meters and started chasing Qs for the contest. -- Tim Kane, K7ANE, and
Robert Grinnell, KD7WNV

==> LATE OCTOBER EXERCISE TO TEST MARS-ARES INTEROPERABILITY

US Army and Air Force Military Auxiliary Radio Service (MARS) stations
will participate in a 48-hour nationwide contingency communication
exercise on October 27 and 28 as part of an effort to develop greater
cooperation between the Department of Defense (DoD) sponsored MARS
program and the Amateur Radio Emergency Service (ARES). MARS is
encouraging its members to discuss communication interoperability in
advance of the exercise with their ARES section and district or local
emergency coordinators.

"This communications exercise is sponsored by the DoD to provide MARS
operators the opportunity to develop and train interoperability
procedures with their state/local ARES emergency coordinators and their
Amateur Radio colleagues," explained Army MARS Program Manager Paul
English, WD8DBY. He told ARRL that the DoD/MARS exercise has "full
participation" from Army and Air Force MARS, and that he anticipates
that some individual Navy MARS members may participate as well.

The plan calls for MARS members, using their Amateur Radio call signs
and operating on amateur frequencies, to establish two-way
communication with ARES leadership or members in as many US counties as
possible by using VHF/UHF simplex channels or local repeaters or near
vertical incidence skywave (NVIS) propagation on HF. "The contact can
be with any amateur in the county, if an ARES member or leader is not
available," English added.

"Ultimately we would like the MARS operator to join an existing ARES
net, if one is operational during the exercise," English said. If no
net is available, MARS members should come up on local repeaters or
check into HF traffic nets to see what amateurs are available and to
determine their counties. "We want to use existing net times and
frequencies to the extent possible," English continued. "Any mode of
operation is fine."

Only one ARES/Amateur Radio contact per county is needed, but more are
okay. The contact must be person to person and cannot rely on
Internet-linked repeaters, Internet connectivity systems, or
store-and-forward e-mail systems, such as Winlink
, English said.

The information exchange requested from ARES for each county is the
county name and the county Federal Information Processing Standards
(FIPS ) code, if
available.

There are two preferred windows of opportunity to conduct the
interoperability exercise. These are from 1201 to 1800 UTC on October
27, and from 0001 to 0600 UTC on October 28.

Contact Paul English, WD8DBY, for more
information. - Thanks to the ARRL Letter

==> ARES GROUP PREPS FOR PUBLIC EVENT WITH EMERGENCY EXERCISE IN
WASHINGTON STATE

Amateur Radio operators on the Olympic Peninsula of Washington State
encounter unique situations and terrain that we are expected to
overcome in times of emergency. To prepare for such times the Clallam
County ARES seeks opportunities to participate in community activities
that allow us to deploy and communicate in support as practice and
preparedness. We were given such an opportunity when a member of the
North Olympic Running Club approached us about an inaugural trail
marathon called the Great Olympic Adventure Trail Marathon (The GOAT),
to be run the first week of September 2014. Our Training Coordinator,
Kathleen Reiter, N1ERT was put in contact with the marathon organizer
Lorrie Mittmann who provided an outline of the event, and her concerns
about lack of cell phone coverage, and hence reliable safety and
security communications.

The ARES Advisory Group was presented with the proposal and with

their approval, a plan for our participation was presented to the
ARES members at the monthly training meeting. To expand knowledge of
the area and as a dry run for the event, the Clallam County ARES
participation in the Washington State Emergency Department's statewide
Fifth Saturday Exercise on August 30 became a tactical field exercise
for us. Since our ARES operates under the auspices of Clallam County
Emergency Management we were assigned Mission Numbers for both the
exercise and the event. Information concerning road conditions, hazards
and communications status were to be provided to them in the After
Action reports.

The local scenario was a wild-land fire response near the town of
Joyce, Washington. Deployment would involve some tricky driving on
logging roads as well as overcoming the usual terrain obstructions.
Although some reconnaissance of the area had been accomplished prior to
the exercise, road and weather conditions had changed.

The exercise began with members contacting the Resources Net for
check-in. They proceeded to a Staging Area at the Crescent School in
Joyce, where they received their instructions and safety briefing for
deployment. The IC was the Emergency Coordinator, Bill Carter, W7WEC.
Assignments and maps were issued to the two person teams and Operations
took control of the exercise from Resources. The teams were then
dispatched to their respective locations.

Upon reporting their arrivals at their locations teams awaited net roll
calls on repeater and simplex channels. When Operations found that they
could not maintain contact with all of the deployed elements from the
Incident Command Post, control was passed to the only station that
could. The teams assessed road conditions, and reported locations and
signal strengths to the net. All then returned to the Staging Area for
the hot wash and were released to the Resources Net Control for final
check-out.

Our findings were reported to the marathon event coordinator and
necessary changes were made in planning for the event.

For the marathon, after contacting Resources, ARES personnel deployed
directly to the locations they had manned during the exercise. David,
KE7TTT and Valerie, KF7VAL Hannon opened the Operations Net to receive
check-ins as members arrived on location. ARES members manned the Start
locations, the Finish Line and all critical points along the trail
where cell phone communications were impossible because of terrain.
Aside from minor glitches, radio communications ran smoothly the entire
day.

ARES members and the Amateur Radio community at large don't always
recognize how positively the general public reacts to our presence.
During the race, the runners expressed appreciation for our efforts in
support of their activity. ARES members were readily identifiable with
communications vests and radios, and our willingness to serve and
demonstrated professionalism was not lost on event organizers. ARES was
able to practice and become familiar with our unique geography and we
feel confident that we will be asked to assist with similar events in
the future. It is a "Win-Win" for both sides. -- Bruce Reiter, KD7WBM

==> DENVER CERT VOLUNTEER RECEIVES FEMA HONORABLE MENTION AS COMMUNITY
PREPAREDNESS HERO

A Denver, Colorado, volunteer and radio amateur with the Citizen

FEMA's 2014 Community Preparedness winners. FEMA announced the winners
as they recognized individuals who have taken action to help prepare
their communities.

occur," FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said. "This year, we recognize
individuals and organizations that exemplify this approach, and I
congratulate them on their dedication to make our nation stronger and
safer." Denver is a safer, more prepared community, thanks to David's

7pm ? 11pm Wednesday 29th October 2014

@ Jazz Caf?, Parkway, Camden, London NW1£18.50 Advance Tickets

There are scores of Hip-Hop bangers but there is only ?Hip-Hop? banger and the Dead Prez classic is always 100% guaranteed to light up any dance-floor.

As the inspiration to the name of ?Bigger Than Festival? it is only right that they are part of the line up of the events first year.

Delivering hard-hitting beats, politically aware rhymes, deft lyricism and strong song concepts, Dead Prez emerged in 2000 as one of rap?s most politically strident outfits.

Stic.Man and M-1?s music provided a voice for the voiceless, a sobering look at the global power structure that was crippling billions of people internationally and millions of Americans domestically.

With south London?s own Iron Braydz on support this show is not to be missed!

adding an otherworldly layer to the band?s sound.

Forming in the small town of Totnes, in the heart of South Devon, Matthew and Me began life as avehicle for Matthew Board to materialise songs he'd written. Over time the band became aninseparable unit of friends, gradually captivating more and more music lovers in the South West andbeyond.

Nothing quite prepares you for Matthew and Me's live show. The drama, intensity, sonic precision, andoverwhelming jubilation in their live performances is seldom seen from an unsigned band. Oftenchoosing settings reflective of their sound, they've performed in churches, glass houses, boats andunderground caverns. During 2014 the band also played at Liverpool Sound City, The Great Escape,
X and Y Festival, Somersault Festival, and Port Eliot Festival.

On November 10th the band release their new single 'Patterns', which was premiered on HuwStephen's Radio 1 show. The band will tour the UK in November and December in support of therelease. More new music will follow in spring 2015.

Winner 'Film of the Year' at IF3 ? International Freeski Film Festival ? 'Almost Ablaze' takes a plunge into the world of Teton as they push their unmistakable mix of progressive skiing and state-of-the-art cinematography to the limits.

The last FFTT of the year at the Lanes as we bring special guests The Nextmen down to Bristol for an end of year bash.

The Nextmen

Unless you have fallen lifeless somewhere thru the cracks you?ve more than likely witnessed Cambridge come Londoners The Nextmen, also known as Brad Baloo and Dom Search, at one of their many sweaty styled-out club sets, festival-smashing performances or heard their incendiary mixtapes, some just days old and some many years since they were recorded, that are still filling the ears of the blissed out masses who just want to kick back or kick up with big boss tunes, not wipe the irony from their chins from the up-chuck of resoundingly vapid faux counter-culture buffoonery. All mouth poser twats with limited social agendas beware - The Nextmen are not the centre of cool for the next five minutes. Beloved the globe over by dedicated followers of music not dedicated followers of fashion? Yep. Loving of the good groove irrespective of genre but not of taste? Yep. The all day every day no-brainer block rocking choice? Natch.

This eclectic production duo continue to carve up shiny gems from London's lovely low-end underbelly with albums, singles, mixes, remixes, podcasts, DJ sets and live shows, blending anything worth listening to from all electronic music styles. Making this connection between music they love be it dancehall, drum'n'bass, dubstep, reggae, roots, instrumental and actual hip hop, soul and soulful low-end boomp, funk & (UK) funky, indie, leftfield, ambient, pop and straight-up party jacking pleasers, is something Baloo and Search always strive to achieve, weaving their way on 4 turntables with mastery and abandon, all laced up with their own sought after mash-up edits, bootlegs and specials!

### What the gets wrong about hackers

source: http://kernelmag.dailydot.com/issue-sections/staff-editorials/9925/media-hackers-wrong-housh/

The majority of “hacks” that you might hear about on the nightly news or in publications are simple automated attacks. You download a program someone else built, set the target, and click a few buttons. Sometimes you don’t even set a target, you just release it into the wilderness of the and hope it hits something. It takes no whatsoever.

### Wikipedia Zero and Net Neutrality: Protecting the Internet as a Public Space

source: https://blog.wikimedia.org/2014/08/01/wikipedia-zero-and-net-neutrality-protecting-the-internet/

We believe that policymakers should make global communications policies that serve the public interest. It is not in the interests of the public to have an Internet with slow and fast lanes where few commercial players dominate our information . And it is absolutely in the interests of the public to use the Internet to provide free access to education, knowledge, medical information, or other public services. We believe that these goals are entirely consistent, and we hope Wikipedia Zero can serve as a model for how to balance these interests carefully.

**So Wikipedia has now a monopoly of knowledge and that's not against neutrality?**
