It is an interesting short movie "time for sushi" by Los Angeles artist David Lewandowski (Twitter). At the beginning, in Japan, the familiar phrase "... for defending, asking for your cooperation ..." on the streets broadcasts, and the image of the priority seat where no one sits is flowing. There are suddenly two naked people appearing in the sky and dancing. It gradually increased and became a naked crowd and it is crazy dancing in the street (laugh) Is it inspired by "bubble dance" which is the birthplace of kabuki? In disguised social norms and orderly space like Japan, disorderly and naked dancing crazy people are introduced as a symbol of different culture. I think that the funnyness of the movie that puts this body beauty all over can be expressed only by comparison with Japanese culture. I think that this time for sushi (time of sushi) can be called "video sushi" in California now ^^) Vimeo is "for adults" as there is worldly "funny sushi". time for sushi from dlew on Vimeo.

"NIST Special Publication 800-63" of the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), which handles the setting of industry standards in the US, was fully revised in June this year and the worst part of the password directive was abandoned. According to Paul Grassi of NIST who took over the work for 2 years to revise, revision was initially thought to end with simple editing at first. In the 8-page document created in 2003, we encouraged you to periodically change the password by including symbols, capital letters and numbers, as a way of protecting accounts used on the Internet. In the revised edition now spreading to the world, there is no advice of the password deadline, and the special character (symbol) is not mandatory condition. These rules were almost ineffective for security and had "negative impact on usability," Grassi said. Now, phrases that are easier to memorize than funny strings are supported. According to NIST, "Users should change their passwords only when there are signs of being stolen." Password researchers say that passwords with four words are harder to hackers than gathering shorter strange characters. It is said that the one with a larger number of characters becomes more difficult than the one with fewer letters, symbols, and numbers. Diversification of authentication, such as two-step verification, has progressed, but it is a password setting that is often annoying. A long string that you can remember easily, such as the phrase that you were impressed, may be good (^^) 2017 draft update to NIST password standards (^^) (For the US federal government)
