Old Crow RR480 MK2 CS80 Filter w/ VCA PCB - Modular Addict Synth DIY
The RR480 MK2 is a eurorack bare board set DIY version of the CS80 filter, using the same core circuit designed in 2001 for the MOTM-480, and more recently the M480 MkII. The euro version is a 28HP module that includes two CS80 SVF filters and an "Irwin" VCA. A new feature has been added: an input mode select to allow the standard CS80 HP->LP filter chain or a split mode where two inputs go to SVF1, and one input goes to SVF2. All taps are available for both filters in either mode.

America’s House Divided Cannot Stand - WSJ
Voters tend to see their political opponents as enemies, which is dangerous for democracy.

the idea that democratic socialism and white nationalism are equidistant from some imaginary political center is fascist propaganda

this is going to sound like i made it up, but i am working in a cafe and the older couple behind me is talking about MARRIAGE STORY. the man said, bemused with himself, that it was “really about divorce” and should have been called “Divorce Story.”

Depression researchers rethink popular mouse swim tests
It is not clear whether mice stop swimming because they are despondent or because they have learnt that a lab technician will scoop them out of the tank when they stop moving. Factors such as water temperature also seem to affect the results.

F5 brings WAF app protection to the NGINX platform | ZDNet
Cloud via Latest topics for ZDNet in Cloud

F5 Networks on Tuesday announced a series of new multi-cloud application security services, including a service that brings its Web Application Firewall (WAF) technology to the NGINX platform. The new services follow F5's recent acquisition of NGINX, as well as its $1 billion acquisition of Shape Security.

The acquisitions and new products have allowed F5 to reframe its approach to security, the company said Monday, with a focus on four key areas: application layer security, trusted application access, application infrastructure security and intelligent threat services.

The new NGINX App Protect service should bring security to the NGINX platform with easy integration into CI/CD toolchains, F5 said. That kind of application layer security is key, the company says, as CI/CD workflows have sped up the time it takes for apps to move into production. 

F5 is also rolling out Essential App Protect, a SaaS product that offers out-of-the-box protection against common web exploits, malicious IPs, and coordinated attacks. It can be easily added to a DevOps toolchain.  Next, the cloud-delivered Behavioral App Protect uses machine learning and crowdsourced threat intelligence to detect malicious behavior in real time. Lastly, Aspen Mesh Secure Ingress helps secure traffic entering Kubernetes clusters.

Korea’s coronavirus spread puts an export hub at risk • WSJ
Mike Bird:
<p>The rapid spread of coronavirus in South Korea is bleak news for global manufacturers. China-style industrial shutdowns look increasingly likely in a country that punches above its weight—perhaps more than any other—in global supply chains.

On Sunday South Korean president Moon Jae-in raised the country’s virus alert to red after a surge in cases in the city of Daegu. A Samsung Electronics facility near the city has already closed after an employee was diagnosed with the disease. The Kospi stock index dropped nearly 4% Monday and the Korean won was down more than 1% against the U.S. dollar.

South Korea is a medium-size country, but a mammoth in trade. The country’s exports are equivalent to 44% of its GDP, second only to Germany among major advanced economies.

But even that understates its importance. Few of the country’s exported goods are finished products. Its overwhelming specialty is intermediate goods required by other manufacturers. Such goods make up around 55% of Germany’s exports, 62% of China’s—but 90% of South Korea’s. The country has a commanding position in electronics, dominating some categories of semiconductors and displays…

… So any industrial shutdowns designed to slow the spread of coronavirus will be felt immediately elsewhere. Companies that have spent the past three weeks scrambling to find alternatives to Chinese-made goods may now find themselves facing the same conundrum for South Korean parts.</p>

The domino effect is starting to kick in. South Korea has the <a href="">largest number of cases outside China</a> - and high population density.

Bernie Sanders, democratic socialism, and the 2020 primary - Vox
