US State Department evacuates 11 more Americans


The US State Department evacuated at least 11 more Americans from China amid reports of bizarre sounds and sensations that have been associated with mild traumatic brain injury, according to The New York Times. And cases of sound attacks appear to be spreading to additional diplomatic stations throughout the country.
Meanwhile, officials reported two additional “medically confirmed” cases of similar mysterious health incidents in Cuba at the end of last month, according to a series of reports by the Associated Press.
The new cases in Cuba bring the total number of Americans affected there to 26. The older cases date as far back as late 2016, while the new cases—one confirmed last week and the other confirmed the week before that—stem from an incident in May. The newer cases occurred at a diplomatic residence in which both affected individuals were present.

Stay in a ball

Stay in a ball for ten seconds. Both the heat and the blast wave will pass over you in that time. Then, if you can, stand up. You will be among the survivors — provide you can move fast enough to avoid falling rubble and fire.

If the explosion catches you one step from a tree-trunk or doorway, you can take that step and crouch with your back to the wall. Ib this position debris and fallen glass will fall beond you.

If there were to be a god

If there were to be a god would we need a pope or flocks of doctors of divinities to plead their cases? Set any number of your finest theologians on that riddle and see what they come up with. Down in the gutter you’ve got to wonder, if something was pulling the strings of the universe, would it be making a distinction between tribes of primates. In other words, how long can you be in two places at once before you collapse ? Only a few watershed moments. Us and the rest of the mammals.

Filemaker Webdirect

Filemaker Webdirect

To create conditional behaviors based on the type of client, use the Get(SystemPlatform) function. If the function returns 4, the current user is accessing your solution with FileMaker WebDirect.

Setting the initial layout and view

When a FileMaker WebDirect solution is set to perform a script at startup, users see the results of that script each time they open the solution. To determine which layout and view web users see when they open the solution, use the OnFirstWindowOpen script trigger with a startup script that includes the following script steps:

Go to Layout [ ]
Enter Browse Mode [ ]
View As [ ]
To send web users to layouts appropriate for their devices, identify which devices and web browsers are running your solution.

To prevent web users from being able to create new records:

hide the menu bar and the status toolbar
use the FileMaker Pro Manage Security dialog box to edit record access and creation privileges

You must include buttons that let web users navigate and sign out of the solution as well as perform other tasks.

In mobile browsers, users can’t insert data by dragging a file into a container field. Consider creating scripts that use the Insert Picture, Insert Audio/Video, or Insert PDF script steps.

Working with virtual windows

Web users can navigate between multiple virtual windows in a single web-browser window to view a solution in different layouts, views, and modes. Only one virtual window displays in the browser window at a time, but inactive virtual windows remain open when they are not visible.

Virtual windows are opened, closed, and manipulated using script steps. See FileMaker Pro Help.

Keep these points in mind:

FileMaker WebDirect doesn’t support window styles.
If you open a new virtual window with the New Window script step, provide scripted buttons to navigate and close the virtual windows.
Close unused virtual windows with the Close Window script step.
If you design a script to perform an external script from a FileMaker data source and you want to return to the original window, add a Select Window [Current Window] script step immediately after the Perform Script step in the original script.
If you use the Exit Application script step or close the last virtual window with the Close Window script step, the script ends the user’s session and returns the user to FileMaker WebDirect Launch Center

New Window

•In FileMaker WebDirect and Custom Web Publishing, this script step opens a new virtual window in the web browser. Inactive virtual windows remain open but are not visible. To change the current (active) virtual window, use the Select Window script step. Window style settings are not supported.

•FileMaker WebDirect does not support the Card window style option.

Printing records

Web users can print the current found set of records and scripted reports. When a user prints, FileMaker WebDirect creates a PDF in a new web browser tab. Web users can then use the web browser’s controls to print the PDF.

If you host your solution with FileMaker Cloud, use the web browser’s controls to print the records you see onscreen.
To set print and page parameters, use the Print Setup script step.

It is important that web users properly close their sessions by opening the menu bar and then clicking Sign Out. If they close the browser window or quit the browser before signing out, their sessions may still be open, which might:

prevent others from accessing the solution if the User Connections client limit has been reached
prevent the solution from running scripts assigned to script triggers (see Script triggers)
cause a script to continue running until the specified timeout occurs, which may lead to unexpected results
make data vulnerable to hackers until the specified timeout occurs
To minimize these situations, set the session timeout to a short amount of time or create a scripted button to safely sign out web users. See Disconnecting inactive web accounts and Working with virtual windows.

Note:If you hide the menu bar, create a scripted button to sign out web users. See Hiding the menu bar and status toolbar.

You can specify the amount of time web users remain connected to the solution when their session, or connection to the web server, is idle. See FileMaker Server Help and FileMaker Cloud Help.

Accessing FileMaker WebDirect Launch Center

FileMaker WebDirect Launch Center displays icons and names for each hosted FileMaker WebDirect solution.

Open the web browser and enter:
http:///fmi/webd
where is the IP address or domain name of your FileMaker Server or FileMaker Cloud deployment.

Rather than having web users type the IP address or domain name to access your solution, you can provide a link to your solution.

FileMaker WebDirect Launch Center http:///fmi/webd
A particular database http:///fmi/webd/

From http://www.filemaker.com/help/16/fms/en/index.html#page/fms%2Fhostsite_fmwd.html%23

where there links to more details.

To host a website using FileMaker WebDirect:

1. In FileMaker Pro, open the database and edit the privilege set for the account that will access the database. Enable the extended privilege Access via FileMaker WebDirect.

2. In FileMaker Server Admin Console, use the Deployment assistant to enable support for FileMaker WebDirect, if you haven’t already. Choose Server menu > Edit Deployment. In the Deployment assistant, confirm your settings and click Next until you reach the Enable Web Publishing Technologies step. See Enabling technologies for data sharing and web publishing.

3. In Admin Console, configure the settings on the Web Publishing > FileMaker WebDirect tab.

4. Prepare databases for FileMaker WebDirect. — DONE

5. Upload the database file to FileMaker Server. — DONE

6. If you’re using static HTML pages… — NOT NEEDED

7. Test that your database is being published with FileMaker WebDirect by entering the following URL in a web browser:
http:///fmi/webd
where is the IP address or the domain name of your FileMaker Server deployment

Children’s Crusade

The variants of the long-standing story of the Children’s Crusade have similar themes. A boy began preaching in either France or Germany claiming that he had been visited by Jesus and told to lead a Crusade to peacefully convert Muslims to Christianity. Through a series of portents and miracles he gained a considerable following, including up to 30,000 children. He led his followers south towards the Mediterranean Sea, in the belief that the sea would part on their arrival, allowing him and his followers to march to Jerusalem, but this did not happen. They were sold to two merchants (Hugh the Iron and William of Posqueres) who gave free passage on boats to as many of the children as were willing, but then they were either taken to Tunisia and sold into slavery by the merchants, or died in a shipwreck on San Pietro Island off Sardinia during a gale. Some may have failed to reach the sea, dying or giving up from starvation and exhaustion. They were betrayed by some of the adults in their group.

Manasseh

King Manasseh restored polytheistic worship to the monophytes of Baal, and sponsored the Assyrian astral cult throughout Judah. He is even said to have participated in the cult of Moloch that consisted in sacrificing young children. He took the temple prostitutes under his wing.

Manasseh sent twelve spies to abduct the women of Canaan,  lead by Gaddi, son of Susi. The Medes could smell he had been weed wacking, and rained on him with their dicotyledons.

Clitorius

Arcadia also has a marvel in its blenny, which Pliny said is so called because it climbs out on to the land to sleep. In the district of the river Clitorius this fish is said to have a voice and no gills; the same variety is by some people called the Adonis fish. In the case of a vine, when this swelling makes a knob at the knot it is called a ‘gem’, but before it makes a knob, in the hollow part it is called an ‘eye’ and at the actual top a ‘germ’

Whittled down

I was whittled down to one four-character domain, following all the princes of history.

Here was the woman who drove them mad as hatters while tightening the band. She had ten galleons of fortitude and a honeycomb smile worth its wait in sixpacks.

Mr T

The last person who looked at Mr. T was Ray Charles.

On the 0th day, Mr. T created God. Then made God do the rest of the work while Mr. T pitied him.

The punishment for manslaughter in El Salvador is 35 years of Mr. T’s pity without parole

Mr. T can smell some things up to six miles away

Mr. T uses e before i as he pleases.

The last time Mr. T and Chuck Norris teamed up, Atlantis sunk.

One night Mr. T took a 10 p.m. train home. He still refuses to give it back.

Mr. T was the pope, twice.

Mr. T walked in front of a speeding bus. Needless to say, he was charged with 7 counts of manslaughter.

Mr. T destroyed the periodic table, saying Mr. T. only recognizes the element of surprise.

When asked for his thoughts on vegetarians, Mr. T said: “If god didn’t want us to eat animals he wouldn’t have made them out of meat.”

Mr. T is hung like an 8 year old. His penis is the size of a small boy.

Before Mr. T was born there were only 25 letters in the alphabet.
