Procedure to prepare a niech broshire for press

  1. Denise will compose the niche pages
  2. Generate the XML for InDesign from any page with the XML button on the top.
  3. Generate the checker local html page with the Gen Local button
  4. FTP these back to ... directory
  5. Copy past this link to check picture for apparently local hyperlinks do not work

  6. file:////Users/sethrussell/Google%20Drive/print%20projects/niche%20PT%20201408/local_pictures.html
  7. Import file to InDesign template

previous start on this project indicates how we could select customers for a mailing

  • selecting customers who have purchased certain kinds of products
    • products are not classified in our legacy local database ... so we must transfer those classifications, "class", from our new product database in the cloud.  
    • ftp db/productClass.tam to c: tome
    • run codeselectivemail.prg
      • it transfers class from rawclass db built from to product table.  2 passess, one for major products, next for varieties

Inevitably we need to name each niche with a code, see 2 character bold code above, and assign each customer to up to 3 niches.

yeah that is pretty the way i see it too .  i don't draw a big distinction between the private thoughts of an individual and the public sayings that are extant in their culture.  the only big difference is the sensual channels between them and the presumption of sovereign self.  so yes, watch what you say and what you listen to ... and no, that does not mean i am saying that merely hearing a meme can fuck up your mind. 
I say watch out for tribalism & differences & learn to keep the infections from spreading to your mind.

Government By Riot & M$M Attention
The Drudge Report is merely a snapshot of the current News Front essentially cranking up a need to solve racial problems - the solution to which I wrote about eight years ago & in [item 714].
I speculate that the blacks are being cranked up to riot now because the immigration situation placed the hispanics in the driver seat for the next election & the situation even with the Obama in the white house hasn't improved for blacks much.

Hopefully without crony political pandering ! Pandering is just more of the same; paying to get into a beneficial tribe.

Without political pandering hopefully! Pandering is just more of the same.

Apparently what one group considers "pandering" another group considers "representing their constituency".  Always playing the pandering-card when confronted with a situation where a representative is working to help a group that is disadvantaged before the law does not help us make everyone equal in the eyes of the law.  We elect representatives to go to Washington to speak for our interests, when they do so, they are not necessarily pandering, they are representing our interests in the government.  Pandering is more like a bribe ... offering a group special privileges that nobody else gets in return for a vote or support.  That would be a case where that help does not benefit the society at large, but just that one group disadvantaging others not in the group.  The difference is a fine line ... perhaps best judged on a case by case basis. 
Pandering is like a duck - if it quacks like a duck, walks like a duck swims like a duck - it is easy to conclude it is a duck. Spinning is a duck-like occupation as is pandering.
Quack onward.

Pandering & worse:
NY Times: ...

Since then, the process of drafting what will likely be the only significant immigration changes of his presidency — and his most consequential use of executive power — has been conducted almost entirely behind closed doors, where lobbyists and interest groups invited to the White House are making their case out of public view.

Continue reading the main story

Mr. Obama’s increasingly expansive appetite for the use of unilateral action on issues including immigration, tax policy and gay rights has emboldened activists and businesses to flock to the administration with their policy wish lists. It also has opened the president, already facing charges of executive overreach, to criticism that he is presiding over opaque policy-making, with the potential to reward political backers at the expense of other interests, including some on the losing side who are threatening to sue.

... what representation exists behind doors with lobbyists ?

The politics of it all is even more evil when one considers the DO NOTHING SENATE blocking bills already passed in the House used as an excuse by the president order executively his own agenda while pretending that his agenda is the people's agenda.
source: ... "But Democrats in the Senate have essentially decided to do nothing. Our bills are piling up on Harry Reid’s desk, collecting dust," he said. 

Collins said of the bills that have been signed into law, more than 75 percent of them have originated in the House, and that Senate Democrats have not acted on more than 340 of them passed by the House. 

"Many of them have bipartisan support, including most of the 43 jobs bills that are stuck in this do-nothing Senate," he said.

... How is that representative government? 347 bills not voted on or brought before the Senate before they went on vacation?
The emperor has no clothes but pretends to wear a large jock strap, eh?

Three Years
Ming Translation Line 3 hex #43 (yesterday )- Funny I remember chasing down the Chinese folk song sarm neen (or San Nien) in Kao Shiung many years ago .  It was on a yellow vinyl disk. My lady friend in Hong Kong turned me on to it.  It was about a lover who had been gone 3 years never to return?

What is nice about the Chinese songs is that each syllable is often a note & the melody comes through much purer .
