Борьба за чистоту языка в сборке Vivaldi 1.8.770.25


Всем привет!

 

Мы снова начинаем подготовку к выпуску очередной стабильной сборки под номером 1.8, и поэтому занимаемся полировкой уже имеющегося кода. Впрочем, это не совсем верно: помимо полировки у нас ведётся ещё и активная работа по подготовке к публичному показу новых, давно ожидаемых функций, но это уже после выхода 1.8. Так что пока сосредоточимся на том, что мы готовим сейчас.

"Поиск по изображению в Google" будет лучше, мне кажется, чем "Найти картинку (Google)".

Историческая сборка Vivaldi 1.8.770.9


Всем привет!

Давно у нас что-то не было сборок. Все уже соскучились. Мы - тоже. Это был, так сказать, пример того, насколько критично для небольшой команды временно "потерять" пару ключевых разработчиков :-)

Впрочем, не только временным отсутствием нескольких ключевых разработчиков объяснялось наше молчание. Мы на самом деле готовили новый интересный инструмент, который многих заинтересует. Итак - новая история, в стиле Vivaldi.

Buffett Asks Big Money: Why Pay High Fees?

That’s the figure that Warren E. Buffett recently calculated that pension funds, endowments and wealthy individuals have lost over the last decade to hedge funds and other money managers that charge sky-high fees.

“I believe my calculation of the aggregate shortfall is conservative,” Mr. Buffett wrote in his annual letter, released on Saturday to the shareholders of his conglomerate, Berkshire Hathaway.

The letter, which ricocheted around Wall Street to the consternation of some and the applause of others, was Mr. Buffett’s most damning assessment of the hedge fund industry to date, and it came amid a growing debate about whether professional money managers are capable of outperforming the stock market on even a semiregular basis.

As many investors know, recent failures of these managers to do so has caused all manner of problems — a devastation that Mr. Buffett described pointedly in his note.

“Much of the financial damage befell pension funds for public employees,” he wrote. “Many of these funds are woefully underfunded, in part because they have suffered a double whammy: poor investment performance accompanied by huge fees. The resulting shortfalls in their assets will for decades have to be made up by local taxpayers.”

For the past several years, Mr. Buffett has told anyone who will listen to avoid attempting to beat the stock market by investing in hedge funds or actively managed funds. Instead, he has counseled buying a low-cost S. & P. 500 index fund. (He has said he plans to advise the trustee of his estate after he dies to invest 90 percent of it in an S. & P. 500 index fund and the rest into government bonds on behalf of his wife.)

However, much of the biggest money in the nation hasn’t taken his advice and continues to pay enormous fees for underperformance.

In his letter, Mr. Buffett offered an unusually cogent, honest and blunt appraisal of the human behavior that drives individuals with money to avoid index funds — and their willingness to pay huge fees.

“The wealthy are accustomed to feeling that it is their lot in life to get the best food, schooling, entertainment, housing, plastic surgery, sports ticket, you name it,” Mr. Buffett wrote. “Their money, they feel, should buy them something superior compared to what the masses receive.”

He continued, “The financial ‘elites’ — wealthy individuals, pension funds, college endowments and the like — have great trouble meekly signing up for a financial product or service that is available as well to people investing only a few thousand dollars.”

Mr. Buffett said that wealthy individuals get drawn in by consultants selling them big promises. “Can you imagine an investment consultant telling clients, year after year, to keep adding to an index fund replicating the S. & P. 500?” he wrote. “That would be career suicide. Large fees flow to these hyper-helpers, however, if they recommend small managerial shifts every year or so.”

That advice, Mr. Buffett added, “is often delivered in esoteric gibberish that explains why fashionable investment ‘styles’ or current economic trends make the shift appropriate.”

Hollywood mobilizes against Trump

Beyond the jokes which were threaded throughout the evening, perhaps the strongest anti-Trump statement of the night was from Iranian director Asghar Farhadi, who won the Oscar in the foreign language category for "The Salesman." He announced days earlier that he would not travel to the Oscars as a form of protest against Trump's travel ban -- blocked by federal courts -- affecting seven predominantly Muslim nations. In a statement read by his associate, Farhadi said his absence was out of respect for the people of his and the other six countries.
Oscars: The winners list
"Dividing the world into the 'us' and 'our enemies' categories creates fear, a deceitful justification for aggression and war," Farhadi's statement said. "These wars prevent democracy and human rights in countries which have themselves been victims of aggression."
Of course, protests from Hollywood often play in the GOP's hands. Republicans have long dismissed criticism from the entertainment industry as further proof that it's out of touch, part of the "coastal elite" and an ATM for the political left. Trump, who is leveling similar charges against the news media and announced this weekend he won't attend the black-tie White House Correspondents' Dinner, is sure to do the same.
Remaining politically engaged
But there is a difference this year: the insistence of many entertainers industry players that they will remain politically engaged throughout Trump's tenure -- not just on the high-profile stages of awards ceremonies. The political jabs that dominated the Oscars were really a continuation of Hollywood's rise to resistance over the past month.
There was a celebrity-studded lineup in Washington in January at the women's march that included Scarlett Johansson and Madonna, who said she would not accept "the new age of tyranny." Chelsea Handler and Charlize Theron led a sister march in Park City, Utah, near the Sundance Film Festival.
Then Trump's targeted travel ban caused collective outrage across the entertainment industry. United Talent Agency, one of the world's largest talent agencies, canceled its traditional Oscars party and instead made a $250,000 donation to the American Civil Liberties Union. They opted to hold a pre-awards-ceremony rally where speakers blasted the Trump agenda.
Shortly after the travel ban was announced, Ari Emanuel, a one-time agent to Trump, told WME-IMG talent agency employees that he and his co-CEO, Patrick Whitesell, were forming a federal political action committee. Though Emanuel has not spoken publicly about the focus of the PAC, one source familiar with the plans said many of the agency's employees were profoundly shaken by the travel ban -- which affected some of its clients.
Emanuel and Whitesell plan to seek input from employees about where to direct PAC funds.
Meanwhile, three days before the Oscars, the Creative Artists Agency held a "Take Action Day" for agents, clients, executives and their guests. The full-day event included panels on criminal justice, the environment and immigration. The immigration panel featured a DACA recipient, as well as activists who described the legal workshops they have been holding for undocumented immigrants, outlining their rights and how to respond if an ICE agent shows up at their door.
The day was capped with back-to-back appearances from California Sen. Kamala Harris and Cecile Richards, the president of the Planned Parenthood Federation of America. Earlier in the day, House Republican Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy, a California Republican, also appeared before CAA for a question and answer session.
Harris urged the film executives to get involved in volunteer work while also giving to immigrant aid groups and other legal non-profits that are working in communities.
"We have to be in this for the long haul," she said, describing the resistance on the left as "a process." "We can't peak...and then throw up our hands."
Connected to politics
Christy Haubeggar, a CAA agent and executive who represents Salma Hayek, Eva Longoria and Sofia Vergara, among others, noted in an interview that many in the entertainment community feel more profoundly connected to politics this year.
"The urgency of a lot of the issues facing the nation, we maybe don't feel as intensely, because we are a little bit insulated and a little bit protected from some of those by virtue of the fact that we all live in a few zip codes," said Haubegger, who founded Latina Magazine and hosted CAA's immigration panel on Thursday.
"The thing that has taken on a greater sense of urgency is the dynamic of an administration and election that revealed a cacophony of issues at one time," Haubegger said. "I think it's more than a moment, I think it's a movement. The fact that we are living a civics lesson in real time is its own gift of sorts. We are in a moment that feels acute and urgent."
UTA kicked off Oscar weekend in Los Angeles with a Friday afternoon rally outside its headquarters featuring Jodie Foster and Michael J. Fox. Many of the speakers argued the industry had a powerful role to play in shaping perceptions and breaking stereotypes through storytelling.
"This is a singular time in history, and it's time to show up," Foster said in her speech. "It makes me so proud to see so many people engaging in support for civil rights and our traditions of fairness, freedom and empathy."
Fox, who has been active for many years in Washington on issues such as stem cell research, urged the crowd to unite and never surrender "our shared values of compassion, and human dignity, and freedom of expression, religion and the arts."
Jeremy Zimmer, the CEO of UTA, called on rally participants to raise their "voices loud and clear."
"The politics of fear and division do not reflect who we are as a nation," he said.
