Nunca te as sentido como si no pertenecieras al lugar en donde etas, como si no importar si esas aquí o aya. El hacer las cosas ya no me produce alegría o tristeza ni siquiera me inmuto. Tengo varios amigos todos increíbles, pero cuando hablo siento que no soy escuchada como si hablara al vació, y a mi ya no me afecta el ser ignorada ya no me importa mas...

Te voy a responder resumiendo un ensayo de la universidad de Granada. Puedes leerlo completo aquí digibug.ugr.es/bitstream/10481/21704/1/Bioexistencia_versi%C3%B3n%20pre%20print.pdf

La vida, en efecto, podría comprenderse en general como impulso, intensidad, potencia expansiva. No se la puede limitar a la mera supervivencia. Es, en términos nietzscheanos, voluntad de crecimiento y autosuperación o, en términos de Unamuno, un vivir que se ejerce como anhelo de más vida.

La vida humana posee la cualidad de extrañarse respecto a sí, en el sentido de que puede volverse hacia sí con un gesto de perplejidad o asombro. Mientras estamos inmersos en la vida esa extrañeza parece estar ausente, pero sólo permanece adormecida.

En esa situación inmediata de estar perteneciendo a un contexto vital, el acontecimiento de vivir nos es tan próximo y habitual que ni siquiera reparamos en él. Sin embargo, siempre cabe la posibilidad de que nos sorprenda y extrañe el hecho mismo de que la vida «es». En esa situación se ha abierto una distancia existencial que no nos extrae de la vida pero que nos coloca en su margen más extremo y nos permite experimentarla «como algo». Tal ocurre, por ejemplo, cuando la muerte ajena nos envuelve en el dolor. Ahí, ante el hecho irrecusable y rotundo de la no-vida surge el destello experiencial de que vivimos.

La experiencia del extrañamiento, a la que me he referido, atraviesa la existencia del hombre y lo coloca en una situación tensional. Puesto que es el ser capaz de extrañarse, no vive incorporado a su medio de modo ciego, como el agua en el vaso.

La excentricidad es esa condición humana por la cual nos sentimos «fuera de» un mundo y lanzados hacia lo extraño respecto a él. De este modo, la excentricidad da lugar a la experiencia de que no somos en ningún mundo en particular.

Occidente está enfermo y su enfermedad es el vacío.  la sociedad occidental persiste en un mismo modelo de devenir: el del sometimiento de todo lo real al dominio del hombre, de un ser humano que ya no habita el mundo, sino que se enfrenta a él.

El capital procede ahora expresándose de forma desmesurada, es decir, bombardeando continuamente con una inmensa cantidad de estímulos, reclamos, demandas, solicitudes. La sociedad ya no puede asimilar en un conjunto con sentido todo esto, por lo cual está experimentando una desintegración inmanente que fomenta todo tipo de procesos de dispersión, capaces de llevarnos a la esquizofrenia colectiva.

Los seres humanos se ven encerrados en sí mismos, conducidos en el fondo por una subterránea autonegación que es la expresión de una reducción del deseo a nada. Existe, en esta línea, una tendencia a reducir toda tensión interna, a una «nirvanización» en la que se eclipsa incluso la demanda hacia el otro y que produce una «momificación psicosomática». Como si la nada del mundo se transmutase en una nadificación de sí. No hay experiencia de una nada que impulsa al crecimiento, sino de una nada inexorable que aspira a minimizar al máximo la economía del deseo. La pendiente conduce a una
verdadera pasión por la nada, a vivir como una piedra, como una ameba, como si se tratase de un apetito de muerte sin freno.

Nos encontramos ante procesos de inmunización contra el vacío que producen, paradójicamente, más vacío. La experiencia de finitud y de precariedad en el ser humano hace crecer el impulso a hacerse a sí mismo. Pero en nuestras sociedades occidentales la abundancia y el «tenerlo todo al alcance de la mano» dan lugar a la ficción de que «no necesitamos nada», a un narcisismo generalizado que ya no quiere escuchar la propia penuria interior. El resultado es la experiencia generalizada de un vacío. Este vacío es, por lo demás, clandestino, pues parecería que hoy hay que mostrarse ante el otro como pleno y feliz: parecería que hoy hay que ser feliz por decreto.

Hoy el consumo es, ante todo, inmaterial, descorporeizado. Devoramos ideales y sueños con el fin subyacente de saciar nuestra falta de potencia para promover un nuevo mundo. Sueños e ideales de postín, como los que se abanderan continuamente a través de los medios de comunicación: éxito, fama, gloria, reconocimiento, sustentados en su fuero interno, no por genuinos retos, sino por la imagen representacional que nos deparan.

Engullimos tragonamente cursos de autorrealización, prácticas orientales de relajación, amistades virtuales a través de las redes, juegos de consola, discursos y narraciones que sirven de espectáculo…Y del mismo modo, tragamos con ansiedad afectos y desafectos, que no nos tocan en lo más próximo porque están ahí como cosecha emocional para convencernos de que no estamos solos y vacíos. Pero sí lo estamos.

Embracing you (excerpt from the Bitstreams poem)

Here I am
Your habitat
Don’t say you feel me not

The white light caressing you
The dust covering you
The smell of static entrenched in your nails
DNA embedded in your womb

Your fragile fractal thoughts exposed
I am the presence and the absence
Embrace you and push you

AES Reconfigurable Security Primitive Efficiency

The three previous feedback implementations, feedback mode (FB), feedback mode with fault detection (FB_FD), and feedback mode with fault tolerance (FB_FT), have been considered for the definition of the whole AES security primitive. We have defined three reconfigurable modules which are the datapath, the SPC, and the SSC.

What is the Difference between Mp3 and .Wav

Being an music producer, file format is something I have to consider. I usually export my songs as .wavs and then convert them to .mp3s later (since they are smaller than .wavs).

Wave is an uncompressed or loss-less format, whereas MP3 is compressed or lossy. Technically .wav is just a container format and can hold various types of compressed or uncompressed audio, but typically you’ll see it containing LPCM uncompressed audio (the same as on audio CDs). With .wav files, you are essentially getting a raw bitstream representation of the audio signal in digital form. An analog sound produced in the real world contains essentially an infinite amount of information because it is a wave that is constantly changing (see below). In order to bring these sounds into the digital domain you need to sample the signal at various intervals to make an approximation of the sound. For .wav the audio signal is usually sampled at 44,100 times per second or more, and each sampled value is recorded so the sound wave can be reproduced:

samples

The analog sound wave is sampled at every T interval to make a digital approximation of the original signal. (For digital audio T is usually 1/44,100th of a second or less)

MP3s are compressed in order to squeeze the same audio information into a smaller file size. The .wav format is great for very faithful representations of the analog signal, but as you probably know that’s usually at the cost of larger file sizes. Compressed audio (and video in a similar fashion) is designed to reduce the file size while still maintaining a respectable level of fidelity. In layman’s terms, compression attempts to remove the unnecessary data from the stream and reduce the signal to its most necessary components. With MP3, the compression and encoding algorithms use a model of how we hear to analyze the audio in the frequency domain and remove and unnecessary information. For instance, due to auditory masking if there are two sounds at close frequencies, often we will only hear the louder one if the difference in volume between the two is significant. So for MP3, the lower volume sound could be discarded and the audio would sound essentially he same to our ears. More info on the technical side of MP3 encoding here.

Wave & Mp3s

In practice, both .wav and MP3 have their uses. For production, .wav is the standard because it will almost always be a 100% accurate, bit-for-bit reproduction of the source material. MP3s can be a decent alternative at high enough bitrates. The bitrate is the measure of how many bits per second the MP3 encoding will use, meaning the higher the bitrate, the closer the MP3 will be to the original, uncompressed stream. Bitrate is usually measured in kilobits per second (kbps). I like high audio quality for my digital music collection, so when I have the option I usually encode MP3s at a constant 256 or 320kbps. That is the higher end of what MP3s are capable of, and unfortunately a lot of digital music out there is not encoded that high. When the bitrate comes down, you can usually hear it first in the high frequencies, for example the cymbals from a drum kit will sound off. 160kbps is tolerable, but anything lower than that and you will really start to notice. But again, with a high enough bitrate the differences between MP3 and .wav are barely distinguishable, especially to an untrained listener (most listeners).

For .wav files we mostly look at bit depth and sample rate or frequency. Bit depth is the number of bits used to encode each sampled value. The sample rate tells how many times per second the audio is sampled. CD (.wav) and MP3 are encoded at 44,100 Hz sample rate (Hertz meaning “cycles per second”). Newer computers and audio hardware/software are now accommodating higher sample rates, including 48kHz or 96kHz. For .wav the bit depth is usually 16-bits or 24-bits on the newer systems. For most purposes, when using .wav, 16-bit and 44.1kHz is sufficient, but if you have the capabilities it’s usually worth upgrading to 24-bit, 48kHz.

Some example file sizes for a stereo five minute recording:

.wav, 16-bit, 44.1kHz: 50 MB

.wav, 24-bit, 48kHz: 82 MB

.wav, 24-bit, 96kHz: 164 MB

MP3, 128kbps, 44.1kHz: 4.5 MB

MP3, 192kbps, 44.1kHz: 7 MB

MP3, 320kbps, 44.1kHz: 11 MB

FLAC, 24-bit, 44.1kHz: 28 MB

FLAC, 24-bit, 48kHz: 31 MB

FLAC, 24-bit, 96kHz: 61 MB

There is also a variable bitrate option for MP3 encoding, which should offer slightly smaller file sizes for the same quality. It uses an encoding scheme that changes (varies) the bitrate for different portions of the song depending on complexity and how many samples would be needed to recreate a given section faithfully.

*ABSTRACT*
This dissertation investigates the impact of health reform on both the
supply and demand for health services. The first essay analyzes the
Massachusetts Health and Insurance Reform of 2006 to determine the impact
of employer mandates to offer health insurance to employees. This essay
finds that employer mandates are extremely effective in preserving employer
sponsored insurance coverage distributions, and that allowing more leniency
on smaller firms results in higher take up rates of public insurance for
employees in smaller firms. The second essay investigates the extent of
market power in specialty physician markets. Whether physicians can
exercise market power is becoming ever more salient in the face of health
reform. This essay finds evidence that physicians do have market power when
bargaining with insurers, and that this market power could lead to higher
prices in the private market if physicians are allowed to collaborate on
health care provided through the public insurance market. The last essay
deviates a bit from health reform and analyzes income differences between
persons with and without disabilities. This essay finds that the inclusion
of health insurance from both public and private sources as income results
in a closing of the income gap between persons with and without
disabilities over the last three decades, a reversal of the findings in
past literature analyzing these two populations and their economic
resources.

my choice

Step 1

I selected the Gapminder database. 

Step 2

looking through it I am interested in the variable suicideper100TH. I would like find how the other variables could affect this rate. 

Step 3

Steep 4 

I think that suicideper100TH can be related with HIVrate, Breastcancerper100TH or alcconsumption.

STEP 5

Investigation questions

Is there a relationship between suicide and new cases of breast cancer?

Is there a relationship between suicide and persons that live with HIV?

Is there a relationship between suicide and the consumption of alcohol?

STEP 6.

After review a couple of articles I decide that I am most interested in exploring the association between mortality due to self-inflicted injury and number of people living with HIV
