Let’s be honest. I could spread a lie about any artist by saying that a singer told someone to cut themselves. This is the internet and people believe bad things far too easily. They don’t want to believe the good in anyone and that is just sad, but that is society for you, they mentally program themselves to always believe the bad. The moral of all of this? Do not believe everything you read. Don’t spread lies about people you don’t know.

Old Himba woman - Angola by Eric Lafforgue on Flickr.

In Angola, most of the Himba or Mushimbas (a branch of Himba) live in remote areas, far from the towns, and are not spoiled by modernity. Himbas people are living in little villages, but they are rich people: they own a lot of cows, and a cow costs 1500 us dollars in Luanda! So when a himba family has 100 or 200 cows, imagine the money they have.
The only task is to take care of the cattle. So once the job is done, the men’s lfe is rather boring, and alcool is a good friend to kill time.

Sonos Adds Apple Music, Reveals Study Linking Sex to Listening to Music Aloud

Multiroom sound pioneer Sonos has announced some happy news for Apple Music fans today, revealing that Apple Music integration will launch on the popular platform starting tomorrow.

Along with the announcement, the company has also shared a unique study it undertook to learn about the positive effects of listening to music out loud in the home — that is, without those little white buds stuffed into your ears. The study, which was helmed by This Is Your Brain on Music author Dr. Daniel J. Levitin, revealed some pretty interesting data.

The experiment took place in January of this year. After conducting a 30,000 person survey, the company outfitted 30 families worldwide with Sonos systems, Apple Watches to monitor heart rate, movement, and calories burned, and iPhones to capture and log the data — as well as to control music playback. Families were first logged during a week without music out loud in the home, then for a week while music played out loud frequently.

According to the data collected, music listening as a group makes relationships stronger and brings people together. Families who listened to music regularly during the study spent a claimed 67 percent more time together in close proximity than previously, eating an average of one more meal together per week. And, in a more literal sense, couples in the study reported having twice as much sex when listening to music out loud together frequently.

In addition, the study concluded that listening in the home also made people 12 percent less “jittery,” 24 percent less irritable, and 25 percent more inspired.

“For years, Sonos owners have been telling us amazing stories about how music has transformed their houses into homes,” said Sonos’ CEO John MacFarlane of the study, “We’ve never been able to put that magic into words, but this research illustrates the real impact of listening to music out loud together — and that makes the Sonos effect easier to understand.”

By integrating its multiroom speaker system with Apple Music, the company looks to help families the world over live better lives — and to use that positive data to move more of their speakers onto the marketplace. The cheapest standalone Sonos speaker, the Play:1, currently sells for $200, and the cost of outfitting each room can get pricey pretty quickly.

However, Sonos and other multiroom audio systems make it extremely convenient to fire up music in the home wherever you are right from your phone. The company is hoping its new data will prove that convenience doesn’t just make it easier to jam out to your favorite tunes, it makes for a better overall living environment.

Whether or not Sonos’ data would hold up under any scientific scrutiny is definitely up for debate, but it’s certainly an interesting point to make in the age of personal media devices that make users more and more engaged in their own micro-environments: When we all engage in music together, we’re all better off for it.

For a rapidly growing company looking to be your total in-home sound solution, Apple Music integration is an important new feature, and one that will give Apple fans another reason to consider going all in with Sonos over other brands. That’s especially true if you believe the data from the new study.

After all, if the simple act of listening to more music together could make you happier, healthier, and more sexually fulfilled, who wouldn’t consider a multiroom sound solution?

Sonos believes music is just that powerful — and the company, of course, wants to be sure you consider the Sonos way for your life-changing solution.

Warriors hilan 41er triunfo en casa; superan al Thunder

OAKLAND, California, EE.UU. (AP) — Stephen Curry anotó 26 puntos, Harrison Barnes añadió 19 y los Warriors de Golden State lograron su 41ra victoria consecutiva como locales al doblegar el sábado 116-108 al Thunder de Oklahoma City.

“Desde luego, esto fue bastante como unos playoff”, comentó Curry. “El ambiente, la intensidad, la adrenalina. Eso es lo que uno espera, desde luego. Se sintió bien tener esa sensación y cumplir”.

Klay Thompson aportó 18 unidades y los Warriors (46-4) llegaron a nueve triunfos al hilo. Igualaron a los 76ers de Filadelfia, que en 1966-67 ostentaron la misma foja después de los primeros 50 encuentros de la campaña.

Asimismo, Golden State se acercó a tres victorias de empatar a los Bulls de Chicago (1995-96) con la mejor racha de victorias en casa en la historia de la NBA.

Por los Warriors, el brasileño Leandro Barbosa anotó nueve puntos, capturó seis rebotes y entregó una asistencia.

Kevin Durant totalizó 40 tantos y 14 rebotes, mientras que Russell Westbrook consiguió 27 puntos y 12 asistencias por el Thunder, que había ganado cinco encuentros consecutivos y 12 de los últimos 13.

“No tenemos miedo de ninguno de estos equipos”, afirmó Durant. “Tenemos que jugar a lo nuestro. Nadie en este vestuario tiene miedo. Tenemos que jugar contra ellos. Si queremos llegar a donde queremos llegar, tenemos que jugar contra ellos. No esquivamos a nadie”.

Un día antes de mirar el desempeño de su buen amigo Cam Newton y de los Panthers de Carolina en el Super Bowl que se realizará en el cercano Levi’s Stadium, Curry ayudó a que los Warriors tomaran la delantera por 20 puntos en el segundo cuarto. Así, Golden State se enfiló a otro triunfo contra un equipo competitivo.

“Creo que fue genial para nuestro equipo pasar por un juego como este”, comentó el técnico de Golden State Steve Kerr. “Ha pasado un tiempo desde que tuviéramos que parar y mostrarnos fuertes al final en el plano ofensivo. En una noche que no fue exactamente su mejor noche, creo que Steph estuvo simplemente fantástico en los últimos minutos”.

París avisa: el desorden en la crisis migratoria llevaría al fin de Schengen

París, 6 feb (EFE).- El ministro francés de Interior, Bernard Cazeneuve, afirmó que la crisis migratoria necesita una respuesta europea con la puesta en marcha rápida de los dispositivos para controlar los flujos de entrada porque “el desorden y el caos sólo pueden llevar al fin de Schengen”.
Cazeneuve, que estos últimos días ha estado de visita en los puntos de paso de inmigrantes y refugiados en Grecia y en Turquía, insistió en que la libre circulación en Europa “supone el control de los flujos”, en una entrevista publicada hoy por “Le Parisien”.
Sin querer entrar a la cuestión de si Grecia está a la altura de la situación de crisis humana y de seguridad en la supervisión de las fronteras exteriores europeas, el ministro francés se limitó a recordar que Atenas se ha comprometido a que estén operativos “lo más rápido posible” los puntos de control de entrada (“hotspots”).
“En cualquier caso -añadió- queda mucho por hacer en materia de equipamiento digital en particular. Y es urgente. Si no lo tenemos en cuenta, las consecuencias serán desastrosas para Schengen”.
Cazeneuve reconoció que en la situación actual sigue siendo posible que haya terroristas que aprovechen el trasiego de inmigrantes y refugiados que atraviesan el Mediterráneo para colarse en Europa, como hicieron varios de los que cometieron los atentados yihadistas de París del pasado 13 de noviembre.
Eso no se resolverá -explicó- más que si se pone en marcha lo más rápido posible “las propuestas” que han hecho, es decir, que en los puntos de control de entrada “se registre al conjunto de los migrantes, se los identifique con un alto nivel de fiabilidad y se consulte los ficheros europeos de policía”.
El enviado especial de “Le Parisien” a cubrir la visita del ministro francés a Lesbos -una de las pocas islas con un “hotspot”- contó que ni siquiera allí se verifica si las personas que se registran al desembarcar aparecen como buscadas o sospechosas en los ficheros del Sistema de Información de Schengen (SIS).
Como tampoco se verifica si esas personas presentan un pasaporte que se sabe que ha sido robado o extraviado (las bases de datos europeas tienen informaciones de 225.000 de esos pasaportes sirios o iraquíes).
Según el departamento francés de Interior -citado por el diario-, en los dos últimos años los servicios de información griegos les han señalado el paso por su territorio de 50 supuestos yihadistas que habían sido identificados y seguidos como tal por Francia. EFE

Les marchés européens en hausse à l'ouverture grâce au pétrole

PARIS/LONDRES (Reuters) - Les principales Bourses européennes ont ouvert en hausse jeudi, portées par le vif rebond des cours du pétrole qui avait déjà permis à Wall Street de se redresser la veille.

À Paris, l'indice CAC 40 regagnait 30,27 points ou 0,72% à 4.257,23 points à 09h25, au lendemain d'une baisse de 1,33% qui portait son recul à près de 9% depuis le début de l'année.

Le FTSE, soutenu par les minières, rebondissait de 1,23% à Londres et le Dax remontait de 0,89%. L'indice EuroStoxx 50 de la zone euro reprend 0,71% et le FTSEurofirst 300 1,02%.

Les cours du pétrole restent orientés en légère hausse mais des résultats de sociétés mitigés de plusieurs poids lourds comme Credit Suisse ou Daimler limitent l'avance des indices.

Le rebond de plus de 8% du brut mercredi tire les valeurs pétrolières et les minières à l'instar de Total, en hausse de 1,1%, ou de Glencore qui reprend 8% pour afficher la deuxième meilleure performance de l'EuroFirst 300. Parmi les indices sectoriels européens, les ressources de base (+3,5%) se classent en tête devant les pétrolières (+1,9%).

La banque néerlandaise ING (+8,7%) est en tête du FTSEurofirst 300 et de l'EuroStoxx 50 après ses résultats meilleurs que prévu, et le réassureur allemand Munich Re (+4,5%) est également recherché après sa publication marquée par une hausse du dividende plus forte qu'attendu.

A la baisse, Credit Suisse lâche 9,3%, la plus mauvaise performance du FTSEurofirst 300, après avoir annoncé au titre de 2015 sa plus lourde perte depuis 2008, qui le contraint à réduire encore ses effectifs.

Daimler perd 4,1% en raison de prévisions prudentes pour le marché chinois, où ses ventes de la marque Mercedes ont dopé ses résultats l'an passé.

Swisscom (-4%) et AstraZeneca (-3,6%) sont également sanctionnés après leurs résultats. LafargeHolcim perd 5,7%, tombant à son plus bas niveau depuis sept ans, après un placement de titres par UBS.

Sur le marché des changes, le dollar abandonne encore 0,2% face à un panier de devises après avoir chuté de 1,6% mercredi en réaction à des déclarations de William Dudley, le président de la Fed de New York, laissant entendre que la Réserve fédérale américaine se montrera prudente avant de relever encore ses taux. L'euro/dollar s'apprécie de 0,2% à 1,11 et le yen monte encore à 117,70 pour un dollar.

Le décrochage du dollar a permis le violent rebond des cours du pétrole.

Our Data Shows Gold Prices Likely to Continue Higher

Why and how do we use the SSI in trading? View our video and download the free indicator here

Gold– Our retail forex trader data accurately called a major Gold Price rally two weeks ago, and a sustained shift in sentiment leaves us plainly in favor of further near-term XAU/USD gains.

Our data shows there are currently 1.5 open retail positions short XAU/USD for every 1 that is long, and a contrarian view of crowd sentiment leaves us plainly in favor of buying into gains. The severity with which Gold prices have surged through major multi-month highs acts as further confirmation that this move is the ‘real deal’.

We would need to see a substantive shift in retail forex positioning to call for a meaningful XAU/USD reversal.
