Faculty Discuss TYPO and Diversity

Faculty and staff filled the Cole Assembly Room in Converse for the second faculty meeting of the year. President Martin opened with her remarks to the faculty, describing her recent trip to East Asia. She mentioned reaching out to an extensive community of alumni in China, her visit being the first time that a president of Amherst has visited Korea, and talks of cooperation with Zhejiang University, in Hangzhou, China, to work on programs to advance the liberal arts in China.

President Martin also addressed the Diver Report, a report scheduled to occur every five years and update the faculty on the overall status of athletics at the college. The report has been on hold since 2002, and Martin proposed that a committee resume regular updates.

Dean Epstein introduced a new initiative to expand the TYPO program by facilitating professors inviting students to their own homes. The annual faculty entertainment allowance has been increased from $200 to $300.

Provost Uvin then began his remarks to the faculty. He discussed diversity in the faculty and staff hiring process, and introduced a new program to encourage retention – a committee of fourteen faculty and six staff as a resource for new hires to ask questions and gather information about the college.

On the subject of diversity, Professor Ron Lembo brought up the recent student controversy over the “All Lives Matter” posters, which appear to be part of a pro-life campaign in response to this week’s “Black Lives Matter” campaign. Professor Lembo mentioned that many students were outraged that posters for the police brutality awareness campaign were juxtaposed with other posters of a different agenda. Dean Vasquez and Provost Uvin said that they had held an open meeting with students that day, and were working on encouraging communication, both among students and between students and the administration.

President Martin closed by stressing that the safety of students is the chief priority of the administration, and that continued conversations would help to build a stronger relationship with the student body.

Typo fun around the world

Typo, typo on the wall, which is the funniest of you all?!

Please don’t get me wrong: I do not want to ridicule anyone around the world for the typos and misspellings they use. English is clearly not their first language and I seriously appreciate them for at least trying. But these typo signs you find while travelling are just hilarious sometimes!

Even I often make mistakes in English, so feel free to find my own typos and laugh about them, too!

But here come some of the ones that made me smile the most during my travels.

Ready to have some typo fun? There you go:

Now this one is a common typo in South East Asia, good for a start. ‘No have’ simply means ‘There isn’t’. The ‘No have’s and ‘Can not’s will probably resonate forever in everyone who’s been there for a little bit. I can still laugh about it every single time I see or hear it! But let’s get a little weirder:

What danger? And the machine is being what?! I guess we’ll probably never find out. It’s good when a sign includes a phone number, so you can possibly ask how it’s meant:

This typo cracks me up! ‘Sell to land’ instead of ‘Land for sale’. Brilliant! No real need to call the number, hahah! But it was going to get worse:

Ever since I took this picture, I am wondering what a butt centre might be. Thinking about it, it could really be a lot of things

Why not come back to something more normal like happy air? Yes, you heard me right:

Well, the most important thing is indeed happiness. So why not buy happy air?! And after that, maybe something to eat?

Yummy, fried pans! Frying pans, fried pans – it really isn’t easy sometimes…

Ready for some philosophical typo fun?

Personally, I think I get it. At least line 2. Maybe.

It gets better though; and almost more philosophical, that is:

Now, don’t you love summer body, too?!

OK, back to food typos:

They pickled a whole village? I never got to see that… I wonder what it would taste like, all these houses and streets and stuff…

What about a whole buffet of  happiness instead?

Funny, right? Does that, for some reason, make you think of mud? No? Well, this one might:

It really does not get much better than soaking collective mud. It is probably the most ‘integrating’ activity of all.

What about some water with it? Warm, you say? Sure! I’ll make it real warm for you:

Seriously, how are these Asian chefs doing all that stuff? All these delicious dishes are one thing, but chapeau for frying water. Like, seriously.

Well, one thing is for sure: Food is always a more pleasant experience in Asia than changing money. Here comes one of many reasons why that is:

Get it? I don’t. Never mind. Just hand them the bills.

Well, but if there is one thing you should never forget, then it is this:

Ah, and, of course this:

Word.

Have you also seen funny signs with typos during your travels? Let us see them in the comments!

How a hacker’s typo helped stop a billion dollar bank heist

DHAKA (Reuters) – A spelling mistake in an online bank transfer instruction helped prevent a nearly $1 billion heist last month involving the Bangladesh central bank and the New York Federal Reserve, banking officials said.

Unknown hackers still managed to get away with about $80 million, one of the largest known bank thefts in history.

The hackers breached Bangladesh Bank’s systems and stole its credentials for payment transfers, two senior officials at the bank said. They then bombarded the Federal Reserve Bank of New York with nearly three dozen requests to move money from the Bangladesh Bank’s account there to entities in the Philippines and Sri Lanka, the officials said.

Four requests to transfer a total of about $81 million to the Philippines went through, but a fifth, for $20 million, to a Sri Lankan non-profit organization was held up because the hackers misspelled the name of the NGO, Shalika Foundation.

Hackers misspelled “foundation” in the NGO’s name as “fandation”, prompting a routing bank, Deutsche Bank, to seek clarification from the Bangladesh central bank, which stopped the transaction, one of the officials said.

There is no NGO under the name of Shalika Foundation in the list of registered Sri Lankan non-profits. Reuters could not immediately find contact information for the organization.

Deutsche Bank declined to comment.

At the same time, the unusually large number of payment instructions and the transfer requests to private entities – as opposed to other banks – raised suspicions at the Fed, which also alerted the Bangladeshis, the officials said.

The details of how the hacking came to light and was stopped before it did more damage have not been previously reported. Bangladesh Bank has billions of dollars in a current account with the Fed, which it uses for international settlements.

The transactions that were stopped totaled $850-$870 million, one of the officials said.

Last year, Russian computer security company Kaspersky Lab said a multinational gang of cyber criminals had stolen as much as $1 billion from as many as 100 financial institutions around the world in about two years.

Iraqi dictator Saddam Hussein’s son Qusay took $1 billion from Iraq’s central bank on the orders of his father on the day before coalition forces began bombing the country in 2003, American and Iraqi officials have said. In 2007, guards at the Dar Es Salaam bank in Baghdad made off with $282 million.

MONEY RECOVERED

Bangladesh Bank has said it has recovered some of the money that was stolen, and is working with anti-money laundering authorities in the Philippines to try to recover the rest.

A bank spokesman could not be reached for comment late on Thursday.

The recovered funds refer to the Sri Lanka transfer, which was stopped, one of the officials said.

Initially, the Sri Lankan transaction reached Pan Asia Banking Corp PABC.CM, which went back to Deutsche Bank for more verification because of the unusually large size of the payment, a Pan Asia official said. “The transaction was too large for a country like us,” the official said. “Then (Deutsche) came back and said it was a suspect transaction. ” A Pan Asia spokesman could not immediately be reached for comment.

The dizzying, global reach of the heist underscores the growing threat of cyber crime and how hackers can find weak links in even the most secure computer networks.

More than a month after the attack, Bangladeshi officials are scrambling to trace the money, shore up security and identify weaknesses in their systems. They said there is little hope of ever catching the hackers, and it could take months before the money is recovered, if at all.

FireEye Inc’s FEYE.O Mandiant forensics division is helping investigate the heist, people familiar with the matter told Reuters on Thursday.

The sources said Silicon Valley-based FireEye, which has investigated some of the biggest cyber thefts on record, was brought in by World Informatix, a smaller firm that is advising Bangladesh Bank on the investigation.

Security experts said the perpetrators had deep knowledge of the Bangladeshi institution’s internal workings, likely gained by spying on bank workers.

The Bangladesh government, meanwhile, is blaming the Fed for not stopping the transactions earlier. Finance Minister Abul Maal Abdul Muhith told reporters on Tuesday that the country may resort to suing the Fed to recover the money.

“The Fed must take responsibility,” he said.

The New York Fed has said its systems were not breached, and it has been working with the Bangladesh central bank since the incident occurred.

The hacking of Bangladesh Bank happened sometime between Feb. 4-5, over the Bangladeshi weekend, which falls on a Friday, the officials said. The bank’s offices were shut.

Initially, the central bank was not sure if its system had been breached, but cyber security experts brought in to investigate found hacker “footprints” that suggested the system had been compromised, the officials said.

These experts could also tell that the attack originated from outside Bangladesh, they said, adding the bank is looking into how they got into the system and an internal investigation is ongoing.

The bank suspects money sent to the Philippines was further diverted to casinos there, the officials said.

The Philippine Amusement and Gaming Corp, which oversees the gaming industry, said it has launched an investigation. The country’s anti-money laundering authority is also working on the case.

[Paper] Typo-technological, elemental and lead isotopic characterization and interpretation of Đông Sơn miniature drums | SEAArch

via Journal of Archaeological Science: Reports: A new paper by Le Meur et al. investigate the composition of miniature Dong Son drums from the Museum of History in Hanoi.

Copper-base drums are among the most iconic artefacts of mid-late 1st millennium BC Southeast Asia and southern China, and more specifically of the Vietnamese Đông Sơn culture and the Yunnanese Dian culture. The wide distribution of these drums, in public museums and private collections, renders their technical and stylistic study difficult, and their comparison complex. In this paper, we focus on a copper-base miniature drum assemblage, discovered in a tightly delimited area of northern Vietnam, associated to the Đông Sơn culture. This multi-disciplinary study incorporates morphological, stylistic, technological, elemental and lead isotopic analysis of a large proportion of a regional drum assemblage for the first time. With this combined approach was intended to improve our knowledge of the people who produced and consumed miniature drums; a class which, until now, has not aroused much interest. The present paper details the archaeometric results of this original analysis, based on 25 samples from the National Museum of History (Hanoi). The results indicate a wide variety of alloy types was used, alongside a range of raw material sources, both with weak correspondence to morpho-stylistic classification. We propose these data evidence Đông Sơn drum miniature production was practiced in a decentralised manner, using materials at hand, but questions concerning their emergence and their link to burial practices seen in contemporary southern China remains unsolved from an archaeometallurgical point of view but will be the subject of another paper (Le Meur et al. (forthcoming).

Typo in betting line on Browns-Chiefs game costs BetMGM $10K

ATLANTIC CITY, N.J. (AP) — Talk about a no-brainer!

A typographical error in a betting line on a Cleveland Browns-Kansas City Chiefs game in January led to a $10,500 windfall for nine eagle-eyed bettors.

The error was revealed last week by the New Jersey Division of Gaming Enforcement, which fined BetMGM.com $500 for failing to properly display the odds on a betting market.

It involved the Jan. 17 game, specifically a so-called proposition or “player prop” bet on the game performance of the two quarterbacks, Cleveland’s Baker Mayfield and Kansas City’s Patrick Mahomes.

In such bets, gamblers wager on whether a particular player or group of players will exceed a certain statistical benchmark, or fall short of it.

In documents released by the state, it was revealed that BetMGM intended to offer bets on whether Mayfield and Mahomes would each pass for 300 or more yards in the game.

But due to a manual error in posting the bet, the “3” was dropped, and bettors were given the option of betting on whether the two quarterbacks would pass for “00” yards or more during the game.

If either quarterback completed just one pass for just one yard, the bet would have been a winner. The pair combined for 459 passing yards.

Five customers of BetMGM pounced on it, as did four on Borgata Online before the odds were corrected. Borgata is owned by MGM Resorts International.

According to state documents, MGM reported the error to the gaming enforcement division and sought permission to void the bets on the basis that the odds were improperly calculated.

The state responded that the bets could not be canceled until after an investigation. That same day, the company decided to let the bets stand and to pay them off; BetMGM confirmed Thursday it had paid the bettors.

Ironically, one of BetMGM’s main enticements for new customers is a no-brainer bet, one designed to be so easy to win that it’s almost a given. A typical incentive would be a $100 payoff on a $1 bet if a customer’s chosen team scores a single point in the game.

It was not the first time a technical error led to an unexpected payout for sharp-eyed bettors.

In Sept. 2018, when legalized sports betting was in its infancy in New Jersey, FanDuel agreed to pay a Newark man $82,000 on a ticket he had featuring wildly inflated odds resulting from a technical glitch; correctly priced, the bet should have paid $18. Several others who made the same bet during a computer glitch that lasted only 18 seconds also were paid.

FanDuel initially sought to void the bets, but then changed course and agreed to pay them, according to state documents.

New Jersey regulators also ordered FanDuel last August to honor 11 soccer bets that were based on erroneous betting lines.

Most sports books have policies that state they are not obligated to pay off on obviously incorrect betting propositions, known in the business as palpable errors or “palps. ” But nothing prevents companies from choosing to honor the bets voluntarily.

Typo Day first time in Sri Lanka

View(s):

Typo Day 2017, an event that seeks to explore the finer aspects of typography and calligraphy, will be held for the first time in Sri Lanka from February 23 – 25. Considered South Asia’s largest conference on typography and diversity, Typo Day 2017 is hosted by the Department of Integrated Design – University of Moratuwa, Industrial Design Centre (IDC) – Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (IIT Bombay), India Design Association (InDeAs) and Aksharaya.

Calligraphy is the art of drawing letters, words and phrases in certain ways using special pens and brushes that create abstract compositions with the drawn text; it is the basis at which the art and science of Typography is formed. Typography is both an art and a science for designing and setting type or fonts for the alphabets of different languages; it looks not only at the design and style of a font but also how the type will appear in terms of spacing, dimensions and detailing of the letters.

The opening day of the event will feature workshops in modern pointed-pen calligraphy and digital typography at the University of Moratuwa. These workshops are expected to provide attendees with high-quality tools so that they may cover the basics in practice strokes and technique. A colloquium on ‘Research in Typography’ is also scheduled to take place.

The conference on the second and third days at the Western Province Aesthetic Resort (NADA) will look at issues faced by type designers, type users and type educators with presentations by invited speakers, eminent academics, industry professionals, research scholars and students. The event will also host an exhibition of selected posters and typographic works of students and faculty members from Design Institutes.
Participation in the workshops and conference at Typo Day 2017 requires online registration. For information on how to register, visit: www.typoday.in/about.html

90,000 Central Asia is not interested in the emergence of US military bases – Rossiyskaya Gazeta

The Central Asian countries are not interested in establishing American military bases in their countries, no one wants to turn themselves into a hostage of US policy, provoke a retaliatory strike. This opinion was expressed by Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov at a press conference following talks with his Sudanese colleague Mariyam al-Mahdi, commenting on media reports that the United States may transfer troops from Afghanistan to Central Asia.

“The main question, of course, to the Americans: if they, having there (in Afghanistan) more than 100,000 NATO contingent at some stage, for 20 years could not do anything while inside the country, what results are they going to achieve with a substantially smaller presence outside of Afghanistan? ” – asked the minister. According to him, the answer is clear. “Most likely, there is a desire to simply ensure its military presence in this region, thereby influencing the situation here.I think everyone understands this and will proceed from the obligations that exist within the framework of various structures, “Lavrov said.

According to him, Washington needs bases in order to strike at Afghanistan if necessary.” I don’t think in whose whatever the interests of turning oneself into a hostage of such a policy, such intentions of the United States, provoking a retaliatory strike, “Lavrov noted. At the same time, the head of the Russian Foreign Ministry recalled that” the issues of the presence of foreign military in the CSTO countries are subject to agreement in the organization. “”I do not think that the emergence of new American military facilities would be in the interests of security in this region,” Lavrov added.

The Minister also drew attention to the fact that the United States is leaving Afghanistan in a rather haste manner. “The Americans made a lot of things to understand over the 20 years of their presence in Afghanistan, ranging from the declaration of the victory of democracy and ending with such a rather hasty withdrawal, abandoning a huge amount of equipment and other equipment,” Lavrov said.

90,000 UGAI Ministry of Internal Affairs admitted that there was a typo in the forms of the biometric driver’s license

11:06, March 15, 2014 Author: Asia-Plus

“The publications that appeared in the media after the press conference at the UGAI of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of Tajikistan on March 4 this year, dedicated to the introduction of new biometric driver’s licenses and technical passports of cars, suggest that many journalists who came to the press conference do not fully understand the essence of the topic ”, – reported on the website of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the country.

The main complaints made by journalists against the new driver’s licenses relate to the writing of personal information on the form of driving licenses. In particular, there were such questions in the articles: “Has the letter“ Ҷ ”been canceled in the Tajik language? If not, why “TH”? Although, if it were so, they would write “Chumhuria” instead of “Kumkuriya” … “and so on.

The UGAI of the Ministry of Internal Affairs of the Republic of Tatarstan admits that this is “really an employee’s typo, made during personalization.” “At the same time, the program itself transliterated the typesetter’s error“ Ch ”into“ Ch ”.Driving licenses with such a typo will be replaced, ”the message says.

To the next remark of the journalists “If we keep silent about the Republic of Tajikistan” – the only correct phrase on this document. As for the rest, there is no English there, ”the UGAI Ministry of Internal Affairs replies:“ The header of the document is made in 4 languages: Tajik, English, Russian and French. On the back of the document, there is a transcript of the lines in Tajik and English. Another, allegedly error, which was written about, is the spelling of the word “License” (Certificate). Someone was of the opinion that the correct spelling would be “License”. However, if you look at the Oxford Dictionary, you can see that the word “license” is used as a noun, ie. “Certification,” and the word “License” is a verb and it would be wrong to use it in this context. ”

As for the alleged errors in paragraphs 3, 4c and 8, which contains personal information about the owner of the license, according to paragraph 6 of Appendix 6 to Part 1 of the Convention on Road Traffic: “All entries made on the license must be in the Latin alphabet.If other letters are used, these records must also be transliterated by the letters of the Latin alphabet. ” As follows from this text, the information in these paragraphs should be exactly transliterated, not translated.

“For example, the same practice is adopted in driving licenses issued in Belarus, Russia and Ukraine. “GAI ATC MINOBLISPOLKOMA” is not translated into English, but transliterated in “GAI UVD MINOBLISPOLKOMA”. The same is true for driver’s licenses issued on the territory of Ukraine and Russia.

I would also like to emphasize once again that the current driver’s licenses of the old model in the hands of citizens of the republic remain valid and must be replaced only after their expiration date. Also, a new type of driver’s license will be issued to citizens who acquire the right to drive a vehicle for the first time or in the event that the validity of the driver’s license has expired. Otherwise, the replacement of driver’s licenses with a new type of license is voluntary and may be needed only by those who are planning a trip outside the country and want to avoid problems with the traffic police of other countries.

We are really depressed by the fact that many times the Tajik media, without fully understanding the situation, provide incorrect information, thereby misleading the population and causing unhealthy excitement. We urge media representatives to contact the authorized press center to obtain detailed and reliable information on issues of interest to them, ”the Interior Ministry’s website says.

90,000 Vaccinations before travel

Vaccinations before travel….


(information for the public)

How to keep your health while traveling? Get vaccinated before traveling. Basically, they are of a recommendatory nature, but there are countries that categorically refuse to let citizens into their territory without a certificate that a certain vaccination has been given to him.

1. Yellow fever

This is the only vaccination, the absence of which can affect the tourist route, because without it you will not be allowed to enter a number of countries. Yellow fever is a serious illness that is transmitted through a mosquito bite. The death rate from fever in unvaccinated people is very high and can reach 60% or more of the number of cases.

Adults and children from 9 months are vaccinated against yellow fever.Immunity from vaccination appears after 10 days and lasts for 10 years, after which it is necessary to be vaccinated again. When traveling to countries where the yellow fever vaccination is a mandatory requirement for entry, entry into them is allowed only after the tenth day from the moment of the first vaccination, and from the first, if the vaccination was repeated. Everyone who vaccinates receives a special certificate, which is your “pass” ticket.

Vaccination is compulsory in countries:

Africa: Angola, Benin, Burkina Faso, Burundi, Gabon, Ghana, Democratic Republic of Cameroon, Congo, Ivory Coast, Liberia, Mali, Niger, Rwanda, Sao Tome and Principe, Sierra Leone, Togo, Central African republic

Latin America: French Guiana

Vaccination is recommended in countries:

Africa: all countries

Asia: India, Indonesia, Malaysia, Thailand
