  1. Climate is officially a financial risk A panel of America’s top financial regulators issued a report yesterday finding that climate change was an “emerging threat” to financial markets. That sets the stage for the Biden administration to take more aggressive efforts to prevent climate change from upending the global economy. The determination came from the Financial Stability Oversight Council, which was established after the financial crisis to identify threats to the U.S. financial system. Among its findings: A recommendation to form a risk committee focused on climate change, with a specific focus on the insurance sector. An acknowledgment that climate disproportionately affects lower-income neighborhoods and communities of color because they often have fewer resources. Support for the development of rules that would require companies to disclose the potential effects of climate change on their operations. But the report was less forceful than many climate activists had hoped.Some of what was missing: A recommendation that banks should hold more capital to withstand climate-related losses. Curbs on extending financing to fossil fuel companies. Specific timelines on which regulators should act on the recommendations it did make. The council’s report comes days before a crucial international climate summit. At the COP26 meeting, the Biden administration wants to paint the U.S. as a leader on climate change. But climate advocates rued what Ben Cushing of the Sierra Club’s Fossil-Free Finance campaign said was a “missed opportunity” to make substantive change.
  2. Thanks for a perspective outside of the U.S. Seems clear that Biden's plan will be reduced. It will be a down payment when we really need to do much more than that right now. While strategic thinking and action are needed, we are stuck in reductionist political thinking and posturing. The per capita graph above is very informative. I didn't realize Japan was #3.
  3. When I add a component/device to reduce noise, the settling-in process proceeds from bass to the higher frequencies and it usually takes a few weeks to be able to determine if they are all in balance. Perhaps it will take a bit longer for you to find out in your system. That said, you use the ENO and eR, so you have quite a few devices already. You may not need the DXE filter or it may not work well in that setup.
  4. My assumption was based upon this part of the Ghent description, with a link back to John's discussion about shielding, meant that Ghent had followed John's advice: Linkway CAT8 S/FTP 40Gbps Ethernet Cable with JSSG360 Dual-shielding protection, designed for Audio quality The JSSG360 link leads to a page on AS where John writes: So some ramifications of this: The traditional "connect the shield to one end and let the other end float" is not good, it does not allow a loop so shielding does not happen very well. If you add the external wire connected to the shield at both ends, then you CAN connect one or both sides of the shield to the signal ground or some other ground, but you don't NEED to for effective shielding. You will find that in many cases leaving the shield completely disconnected from the rest of the circuit is the best way to go, you get the benefit of properly working shielding without any interaction of the shield with your system. You may wind wind up with static charges on the shielding so a resistance from the shield to ground may be useful in some cases in order to dissipate static charges.
  5. well, I guess we will disagree on this point. I think moving operations from China is not easy (let's just consider the precision manufacturing, person power and supply linkages needed to manufacture an iPhone, for example). Both companies and governments, utilizing different means and methods, will need to put pressure/give incentives to China. That is just my personal opinion as someone who is not an expert in this field. In addition, there is much the rest of the world, including the US, needs to do now, and some seem willing. And technological advancements need to be pursued worldwide.
  6. doesn't Ghent audio utilize the design John suggested for copper ethernet? My not be boutique, but always well built and uses quality materials.
  7. Agreed, but I also believe we need to simultaneously try many different ways/strategies to "solve" the problem, and in doing so there will inevitably be wasted money (some private, some public). That is a given, even if we don't like it. Often, markets aren't efficient. We need to stop thinking in political terms and begin by talking about policies.
  8. The overarching point is: "The difference between 1941 and 2021 is that now the mobilisation needs to come first. We need to build popular movements so big that governments have no choice but to respond to them, if they wish to remain in office. We need to make politicians understand that the survival of life on Earth is more important than their ideological commitment to limited government. Preventing Earth’s systems from flipping means flipping our political systems." And, while not wanting to compare anything to Nazism, it is clear that climate change will affect every human on the planet with a potential timeframe of forever. What do we compare that to?
  9. Don't know why, but I find that it takes a new CAT cable time to settle in, even if it has been used but out of the system for a while. Am curious about how your experiment turns out.
  10. View Classified Sonore opticalModule (NOTE: not the current deluxe model) bi-directional fiber media converter or FMC. The opticalModule has an SFP fiber optic transceiver on one side and an RJ45 connector on the other side. The unit can be used to add fiber-optic networking to your existing wired network or convert your existing fiber optic network to a wired network. The unit can be used with All Sonore products or any other network server or endpoint. Purchased February 2020 and used with Sonore/SGC LPS feeding an UpTone etherREGEN. Great combination. Once I had a second eR, however, it was not needed. Would prefer to sell along with opticalModule for reduced price of $220 for both. Perfect working order. Cosmetically very good. Also, if both purchased, free fiber cable included: 1 m/3.3 feet - Cable Matters 10Gb 40Gb OFNP Plenum Rated Multimode Duplex 50/125 OM3 Fiber Cable (Fiber Optic Cable, LC to LC Fiber Patch Cable).
