Indonesia leans on businesses to do more about plastic waste "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

NUSA DUA, Indonesia The Indonesian government is set to make consumer goods manufacturers more responsible for managing the waste from their product packaging, in a bid to tackle one of the worst plastic trash problems in the world. The regulation, expected before the end of this year, is part of a wider effort to cut Indonesias waste output by 30 percent by 2025 from current levels, according to Rosa Vivien Ratnawati, the environment ministrys head of waste management. The so-called extended producer responsibility (EPR) regulation will oblige producers and retailers to redesign their product packaging to have a higher proportion of recyclable material. It will also require that they take greater responsibility for the management of waste from their products. Those affected will include makers of processed foods and beverages, who rely heavily on plastic packaging for their products. Retailers such as supermarkets and convenience stores will also be subject to the EPR requirements in terms of the packaging options they offer customers, as will food and beverage outlets that currently use plastic utensils, plates and cups. The roadmap addresses the way [producers carry out] waste reduction, especially for plastic, Vivien told reporters on the sidelines of the recent Our Oceans Conference in Nusa Dua, Bali. Indonesia is one of the worlds producers of plastic waste, much of which ends up in the sea. Image by Tommy Apriando/Mongabay Indonesia. Vivien said an EPR requirement already exists under the Waste Management Act of 2008, but it hasnt been easy to


In North Korea, Missile Bases Suggest a Great Deception "IndyWatch Feed War"

North Korea is moving ahead with its ballistic missile program at 16 hidden bases that have been identified in new commercial satellite images, a network long known to American intelligence agencies but left undiscussed as President Trump claims to have neutralized the Norths nuclear threat.

The satellite images suggest that the North has been engaged in a great deception: It has offered to dismantle a major launching site a step it began, then halted while continuing to make improvements at more than a dozen others that would bolster launches of conventional and nuclear warheads.

The existence of the ballistic missile bases, which North Korea has never acknowledged, contradicts Mr. Trumps assertion that his landmark diplomacy is leading to the elimination of a nuclear and missile program that the North had warned could devastate the United States.

We are in no rush, Mr. Trump said of talks with the North at a news conference on Wednesday, after Republicans lost control of the House. The sanctions are on. The missiles have stopped. The rockets have stopped. The hostages are home.

NOT RECOMMENDED: DR. CARBLES IS LOSING HIS MARBLES by Dan Gutman and Jim Paillot "IndyWatch Feed 1stpeople"

Published by HarperCollins in 2008, Dan Gutman and Jim Paillot's Dr. Carbles is Losing His Marbles! gets a Not Recommended label right away.

The first chapter, "Squanto and Pocahontas" starts out with this illustration:

The narrator for Dr. Carbles is Losing His Marbles is a kid named A.J. He hates school. That's him in the foreground of the illustration. He tells us that it is time to go home (end of the school day) but the school secretary announces that they all have to go to the all purpose room (p. 2-4):
So we were sitting there, bored out of our minds, when suddenly two American Indians came running down the aisle! They were wearing feathers and head-dresses. They jumped onto the stage, whooping and hollering. 
But they couldnt fool us. We knew exactly who they were. 
Its Mrs. Roopy! yelled my friend Michael, who never ties his shoes. Mrs. Roopy is our librarian.
And Mr. Klutz! yelled my friend Ryan, who will eat anything, even stuff that isnt food. Mr. Klutz is our principal, and he has no hair. 
Klutz? said Mr. Klutz. Never heard of him. I am Squanto, a Patuxet Indian who helped the Pilgrims survive their first years in America. 
And I am Pocahontas, said Mrs. Roopy. I helped the English colonists when they arrived in Virginia in 1607. 
Mrs. Roopy always dresses up like somebody else. She never admits shes the librarian.

YouTube CEO Says That Videos May Be Blocked Due to EU Copyright Law "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Two years ago the European Commission announced plans to modernize EU copyright law.

Some of the proposals were hugely controversial. Article 13, for example, would see the liability for infringing content switched from users of sites like YouTube to the platform itself.

But, despite warnings, in September the European Parliament voted in favor of proposals put forward by Axel Voss EPP group.

While we support the goals of article 13, the European Parliaments current proposal will create unintended consequences that will have a profound impact on the livelihoods of hundreds of thousands of people, Wojcicki writes.

The parliaments approach is unrealistic in many cases because copyright owners often disagree over who owns what rights. If the owners cannot agree, it is impossible to expect the open platforms that host this content to make the correct rights decisions.

Using the hit Despacito as an example, Wojcicki says that the track contains multiple copyrights including sound recording and publishing rights. YouTube has agreements with several parties to license the video but other rightsholders remain unknown. This could present a situation so complex that YouTube might have to stop hosting the video altogether.

That uncertainty means we might have to block videos like this to avoid liability under article 13. Multiply that risk with the scale of YouTube, where more than 400 hours of video are uploaded every minute, and the potential liabilities could be so large that no company could take on such a financial risk, she adds.

While the rest of the world appears to be safe from such blocking, YouTubes CEO warns that it is EU residents that will be affected. During the last month alone, videos were viewed by citizens more than 90 billion times.

Wojcicki says her company wants to work with policymakers and the industry to develop Article 13 in a way that protects rightsholders but without stifling the creative economy. That might including b...

Deadliest wildfires in the United States since the 1990s "IndyWatch Feed War"

Wildfires raging in California are among the deadliest recorded in the United States, with at least 31 people killed in the state as 250,000 flee their homes.

The largest and most destructive of the blazes is the Camp Fire in the foothills of the Sierra Nevada mountains, which started on November 9 and has claimed 29 lives.

This death toll matches the highest previously recorded for a single wildfire in the United States, when 29 people died fighting a blaze at Griffith Park in Los Angeles County in 1933.

The United States is regularly struck by wildfires in its dry late summer months. Here is a look back at some of the most deadly since the 1990s:

2018: 10 die in two blazes

AFP | A power line catches fire as the Woolsey fire burns on both sides of Pacific Coast Highway (Highway 1) in Malibu, California, as night falls on November 9, 2018

A fire that starts late July near the city of Redding in northern California rages for six weeks and claims the lives of eight people, three of them firefighters.

Called the Carr Fire, it razes more than 1,000 homes, forcing the evacuation of 40,000 people.

The Mendocino Complex that starts days later southwest of the city is on August 7 declared to be the largest fire in Californias recorded history. It eventually burns through nearly 460,000 acres (186,000 hectares), according to local authorities, and claims two lives.

2017: 42 dead in California

California is ravaged by around 20 wildfires from early October that go on to claim 42 lives over the month, most of them in wine-producing Sonoma County, just north of San Francisco, where 22 die.

As many as 11,000 firefighters some from as far away as Australia are involved in battling the blazes which burn through more than 245,000 acres, force the evacuation of 100,000 people and destroy about 10,000 buildings.

2016: 13 killed in tourist area

A fire breaks out late November in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, a popular tourist area straddling the border of southeastern US states Tennessee and North Carolina, and rapidly spreads, pushed by strong winds and tornadoes.

Thirteen people are killed, 12 directly related to the blaze and one of a heart attack while fleeing, authorities say.

Are Turkey & Syria Coordinating Operations In North Eastern Syria? "IndyWatch Feed War"

"All this while there is a greater advancement of the Syrian regular army from the south and the Turkish army from the west."
Advancing Syrian regular army from the south and Turkish army (regular army) advancing from the west.

Israel-Gaza border falls quiet after botched Israeli operation "IndyWatch Feed War"

The Israel-Gaza border fell quiet on Monday after a botched Israeli undercover operation in the Gaza Strip led to fighting that killed a Hamas commander, six other Palestinian militants and an Israeli colonel.

Palestinians fired 17 rockets into southern Israel late on Sunday in response to the incursion and air strikes, which Hamas, the dominant armed group in Gaza, said were intended to cover the retreat of a car used by the Israeli troops.

There were no reports of injuries or damage in Israel, but the military said a lieutenant-colonel, identified only as M, had been killed in the raid and another officer wounded.

Hamas said the Israeli actions dealt a blow to Egyptian, Qatari and U.N. efforts to broker a long-term ceasefire between the Palestinian group and Israel and ease an Israeli blockade that has deepened economic hardship in Gaza.

Palestinians look at wreckage of car destroyed in Israeli air strike in Khan Younis (12/11/18)


But neither side appeared eager to pursue broader conflict.

Hamas received $15 million in Qatari-donated cash via Israel on Friday to pay for civil servants salaries and fuel to address Gazas energy crisis.

No new rocket launches were reported on Monday morning.

Violence has flared regularly along the Israel-Gaza border since Palestinians began protests there on March 30 to demand rights to land lost to Israel in the 1948 war of its creation.

Israeli gunfire has killed more than 220 Palestinians since the start of the demonstrations, which have included breaches of Israels border fence.

Hamas said that during Sundays fighting, assailants in a passing vehicle opened fire on a group of its armed men, killing one of its local commanders, Nour Baraka.

A pursuit ensued and witnesses said Israeli aircraft fired more than 40 missiles into the area. Palestinian officials said that in addition to Baraka, five other Hamas men and a member of the Popular Resistance Committees were killed.

In an apparent attempt to defuse tensions, Israels chief military spokesman said the special forces had not been dispatched to assassinate Hamas commanders, a tactic that led to wider conflict in the past and which has largely been abandoned.

The spokesman, Brigadier-General Ronen Manelis, told Army Radio that covert missions were mounted frequently, comments that suggested the Israeli force may have been gathering intelligence.

Star Trek-like Tech Seals Wounds with a Laser "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In early tests, this laser-activated silk and gold material held wounds together better than stitches or glue

On Star Trek: The Next Generation, Commander Riker had an impressive ability to receive head wounds. Luckily for him, Dr. Crusher could whip out the dermal regenerator, a handheld sci-fi tool that healed skin wounds with a colorful laser.

Luckily for us, Kaushal Rege and colleagues at Arizona State University are developing essentially the same thing. Well, close enough. In a new paper out from the journal Advanced Functional Materials, the engineers successfully repaired animal wounds with a silk and gold nanomaterial activated by a laser.

In this proof-of-concept study, the technology quickly sealed soft-tissue wounds in pig intestines and on mice skin. In the pig intestines, for example, the seal proved to be roughly seven times stronger than traditional sutures.

When sealing wounds, sutures, staples, or glue can often cause problems such as leakages at the repair site and slow recovery of the tissue. Were trying to seal incisions faster and heal them at an earlier point of time, says Deepanjan Ghosh, a PhD student in Reges lab and co-author on the paper.

Comparison of three methods of wound repair, on days 0 and 2. Photos: Russell Urie/Advanced Functional Materials This comparison shows the effects on a wound of conventional suturing, skin glue, and laser sealing at 0 and 2 days after injury.

To use a laser to seal skin, one must focus the heat of the light using some sort of photoconverter. Reges lab opted for gold nanorods and embedded them in a silk protein matrix purified from silkworm cocoons. A silk protein called fibroin binds to collagen, the structural protein that holds together human skin cells. When near-infrared light hits the gold nanorods, they produce heat and activate the silk and skin to create bonds, forming a sturdy seal.

The near-infrared laser operates at a wavelength of about 800 nanometers, which is powerful enough to heat the gold without damaging the skin.

The engineers created two disc-shaped sealants: one for wet environments that does not dissolve in water and one for dry environments that does. The first was used to repair samples of pig intestine. When the t...

Trump: Infected ballots make a fair count impossible in Florida "IndyWatch Feed War"

President Trump claimed Monday an honest vote tally in Floridas races for governor and the U.S. Senate is no longer possible because the ballots have been infected by voting irregularities.

The Florida Election should be called in favor of Rick Scott and Ron DeSantis in that large numbers of new ballots showed up out of nowhere, and many ballots are missing or forged. An honest vote count is no longer possible-ballots massively infected. Must go with Election Night! Trump wrote on Twitter Monday morning.

Republican Gov. Rick Scott, the candidate for Senate, filed several lawsuits against Broward and Palm Beach Counties Sunday that accuse officials of willful disregard of the law. He said those counties failed to count their votes on time, and mixed in votes that should have been disqualified with legal ballots.

Both counties are in the process of recounting votes nearly a week after the election took place. Scott had a small lead over incumbent Democratic Sen. Bill Nelson as of Sunday night of just under 13,000 votes out of more than 8 million cast.

The GOP governor is asking the judge not to allow the counting of any ballots that werent counted by Saturday, the states legal deadline for tallying up election results. He also wants voting equipment and paper ballots to be seized by police.

Nelson has said Scott is worried that when all votes are counted hell lose the election.

Republican Ron DeSantis, a former congressman, leads Democrat Andrew Gillum by 33,000 votes in the governors race, as of Saturday evening, according to data by the Associated Press.

I think Ive spotted the problem "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Why does the American media suck? Heres a hint in an article that is discussing how the press should respond to the farce that the White House press briefings have become. The author is against a walkout or boycott or whatever the media is calling the imaginary response that wont happen anyway.

The White House is a lousy source of information about itself, but it is also the best available source.

Wait, what? Its probably the worst available source the White House is not going to fess up to any perfidy. Theyre going to tell you a bunch of lies and cover up any problems. Unless your story is Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied again today, the real story, the facts of what is going on, are buried underneath whatever message theyre peddling in the briefings. In stuff like this:

The real story of Trumpism is probably found not in the White House or even in Washington but in Ohio, in Texas, along the Mexican border, in refugee camps the world over, in Afghanistan, in Yemen, and in the Palestinian territories.

Yes. And also in Washington, in the actions the principal actors there take. Not in what they say theyre doing, but what theyre actually doing. The press briefings have become tools of disinformation, where they say whats happening, and can trust the lackeys of the media to happily echo their story, because digging into the actual facts of what theyre doing is hard work.

But the story of how the Administration functions must still be observed up close. Walking away would give this White House exactly what it wants: less contact with the media, less visibility, ever less transparency and accountability. Walking away would feel good, but it would ultimately be a loss. Would the loss in information be greater than the gain in solidarity? Thats a hard question, but my guess is that the answer is yes.

This is nuts. What Trump wants is more attention. But he also wants to control what the media says about him, and that is what these official White House press briefings are for.

And what information would we lose? Sarah Huckabee Sanders lied again today is basically only one bit of information.

The Trump Administration has the media in a vise. On the one hand, most of what comes out of White House mouths is poison to the public conversation: because its a lie, or an expression of hate, or both. Simply reporting Trumps lies and incendiary comments, however critically, serves to entrench his world view as a part of our shared reality. At the same time, he is...


Estoy o no preparado para asumir la paternidad? "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

De las decisiones ms importantes que tomar en su vida, est la de ser pap o mam; no es suficiente querer traer al mundo a nio, sino determinar si es el momento idneo y si est o no preparado para encarar la responsabilidad que acarrea. Aprenda a identificar los indicios de estar listos para tener un beb.

Lo que debe saber antes de plantearse tener un hijo

Qu tan buena y estable es su relacin?

Es un error garrafal considerar que la llegada de un hijo como salvavidas de una relacin, pues lejos de lo que se piensa, solo complicar la situacin. Aparte, est el dao que le ocasionar al beb crecer en un ambiente lleno de las peleas y discusiones propias de una pareja que no deja de sobre esforzarse para ser felices juntos.

Por su parte, usted se sentir agobiado por la carga extra de trabajo que supone el cuidado de un beb, haciendo que las peleas habituales pasen al siguiente nivel. Recuerde que para un desarrollo sano, los nios necesitan un hogar lleno de cario y amor en el que su arribo sirva para fortalecer los vnculos y no un intento desesperado de salvar algo que no da para ms.

Tenga un beb por las razones correctas:

El grado de responsabilidad que implica tener un hijo demanda preguntarse si est listo para ser padres y las razones por las que desea serlo. Sin embargo, no son viables motivos como hacerlo porque se siente solo o porque es su obligacin, la nica razn vlida es la de querer compartir su amor incondicional con otra persona.

Considere su estabilidad econmica:

Si bien este es uno de los aspectos menos considerados la mayora de las personas que se plantea la idea de tener un hijo, no cabe duda que el factor dinero es de gran relevancia. Aunque suene crudo, tener un beb puede desde la perspectiva de nica del amor y las emociones no es lo ms recomendable; la verdad que traer al mundo a un nio sin la estabilidad financiera necesaria puede convertirse en un infierno ms rpido de lo que se cree, ya que su crianza supone un desembolso econmico que ir creciendo con el paso de los aos.

Comencemos por los primeros aos, en los que siendo un beb demanda gastos, mismos que se acrecientan con su entrada al colegio; pero no el asunto no termina ah, pues tendr que cuidar de su hijo al menos durante 18 aos, sin pasar por alto el hecho de que cada vez se retarde ms la edad en la que se marchan de casa, haciendo probable que deba mantenerlo por mayor tiempo.



Canada in talks with Pakistan over possibly taking in Asia Bibi "IndyWatch Feed War"

Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau said Monday that his government was holding talks with Pakistan over potentially offering asylum to Asia Bibi, a Christian woman recently freed from prison after her blasphemy conviction was overturned.

We are in discussions with the Pakistani government, Trudeau said in an interview with AFP in Paris, where he was attending a peace conference organised by French President Emmanuel Macron.

There is a delicate domestic context that we respect which is why I dont want to say any more about that, but I will remind people Canada is a welcoming country, he said.

British Pakistani Christian Association/AFP/File | Asia Bibi spent eight years on death row for blasphemy but has now been freed from jail

Bibi has been blocked from leaving Pakistan after the overturning of her conviction prompted a wave of protests among Islamist hard-liners.

She has since been flown to a safe place in the country as several governments have offered to grant her family asylum.

Her husband has appealed in particular to Britain, Canada and the United States, claiming that Bibis life would be in danger as long as she lived in Pakistan.

Bibis conviction stemmed from a 2009 incident when she was asked to fetch water while out working in the fields.

Muslim labourers objected to her touching the water bowl as a non-Muslim. A fight reportedly erupted, and a local imam then claimed Bibi insulted the Prophet Mohammed.

Bibi has consistently denied the charges and her prosecution rallied international rights groups, politicians and religious figures.

US Border Patrol Agents Prone To Corruption "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Toward the end of September, Ramon Antonio Monreal Rodriguez obtained $650,000 worth of cocaine from smugglers along the Arizona border. The 32-year-old Tucsonian made two exchanges of drugs and money over the course of two nights, and ensured 41 kilos of coke got into the US from Mexico without any problems. Monreal and the traffickers met up at a prearranged spot in a patch of desert near the San Gabriel Gate. Monreal knew the area well. After all, he had been working in the vicinity since he joined the US Border Patrol a decade earlier. The FBI, which had Monreal under surveillance, arrested him on Sept. 25; Monreal resigned from his role as an agent later that day.

Privacy International has filed complaints against seven corporations, consisting of data brokers (Acxiom and Oracle), companies that provide consumer profiling and targeting data for advertising purposes (Criteo, Tapad and Quantcast), and two credit-referencing agencies that collect sensitive financial data on roughly everyone in the U.S. as well as many in Europe and elsewhere (Equifax and Experian). The complaints have been lodged with data protection authorities in France, Ireland and the U.K. The group is asking for an investigation into their data-handling practices under the auspices of Europe's strict General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR).

The GDPR, which went into effect in May, gives regulators real teeth when it comes to enforcing privacy mandates, including issuing fines of up to 4 percent of an offending company's annual turnover. That would equal billions of dollars for Fortune 500 companies such as Equifax, which consumers know from the massive data breach last year.

Aside from the credit-reporting giants, the complaints target companies that, despite collecting and using or selling the data of millions of people, are not household names.

New Dawn FM News
The ABG member for TEWA, CHARLES KAKAPETAI has called on the people of KUNUA and KEREAKA to submit to authorities so that real peace can prevail in the communities.
Speaking at the reconciliation ceremony in KORAKA ward, KEREAKA, the member called on the people to contribute to the peace building program by working with leaders without complaining.
He said that the ABG does not have the monies to support projects and programs in the wards and ward members must organise their activities in their wards to support the ABG.

The member also called on his former combatants to be committed to destroy their remaining weapons before the referendum.
MR. KAKAPETAI said that according to UN records, KUNUA/KEREAKA contained only 36 percent and must now surrender the remaining 64 percent.
The member told his people that after referendum UN will put to task the ABG with the weapons that the people have not surrendered for permanent removal.

After A Visit From The Council, Anti-Gold-Mining Activists Say They Will Fight Any Eviction Attempt "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Activists claim the official was not initially forthcoming. They say they noticed a man arriving in a hurried fashion in a white jeep. The man got out of his vehicle and then took photos of the protest caravans. He then tried to leave very quickly. When activists approached him, he identified himself as an official from the Fermanagh and Omagh District Councils planning office. Activists told The Canary the official said he was taking photos to build a file on the camp. The official informed them, they said, that the landowner might have to remove the camp, as they dont have planning permission for the two caravans on site. When they asked why the council took nine months to approach them, the official reportedly said it had only recently found out about it through social media.

Gilbert Doctorow: Armistice Day Commemorations, 2018: Turning the 'Lessons of History' on Their Head "IndyWatch Feed War"

Armistice Day Commemorations, 2018: Turning the 'Lessons of History' on Their Head
Today French President Emmanuel Macron officiated at a ceremony before the Arc de Triomphe in Paris marking the 100th anniversary of the Armistice which ended the First World War. While dozens of heads of state from around the world were present, the featured guests were the German Chancellor and the presidents of Turkey, Russia and the United States. They were seated on either side of Macron and were picked up repeatedly by the cameramen who projected their images onto large screens and into the television feed of the French broadcasters.
There is fitting logic for the venue and for the honor roll. We recall that four years ago, the commemoration of the start of The Great War took place in Belgium, where the hostilities on the Western Front began in August 1914. The fighting ended in France with the signing of the Armistice on 11 November 1918 in a railway car near Compigne, not far from Paris, where the German army had staged its last, unsuccessful offensive. Hence the role accorded to France from among all combatant states to lead the solemn events this year.
As for the highest consideration paid not to an ally in the Entente, but to precisely the leader of the once-upon enemy, Angela Merkel, we must recall that German-French reconciliation has underpinned the peace project that we know as the European Union from its inception and the two countries have guided the Union in tandem ever since, even if the French half has limped along this past decade under deeply flawed and unpopular heads of state.


Five Things Everyone Gets Wrong on Iran "IndyWatch Feed War"

On November 5, the Trump Administration rolled out a host of sanctions targeting 50 Iranian banks and their subsidiaries, the national airline, and 200 members of the shipping industry. The purpose? Cut off Tehrans oil revenue and damage the regimes nuclear capabilities.

Its not exactly a secret that Iran has had a tense relationship with the Western world, dating back to the Islamic Revolution in the 1970s. Our goals are obviously not aligned, but if theres anything we can both identify with, its being victims of consistent politically-motivated misconceptions. Actually, lets not play with words here: blatant propaganda. We associate the word with negative connotations, but its a lot more common than youd think. Any national government with an interest in morale and support either directly or indirectly has their hand in some sort of propaganda program aimed at boosting patriotism. Its not even necessarily a bad thing, but when facts and reality start to become a victim in the quest to rally the people, thats a problem.

Iran, from every fact-based viewpoint, has committed many atrocities and human rights abuses. Their suppression of freedom of speech has no justification and when compared to growing personal liberty around the world, its crimes are even more despicable. But that doesnt give its adversaries, no matter how much of the moral high ground they occupy, an excuse to stretch its crimes and exaggerate certain aspects of Iranian life. Facts speak volumes on their own, theres no need for a government to bolster the obvious. So, for the sake of facts, lets dispel some inaccuracies about Iran:


Iran Is a Dictatorship

To the average observer, itd be easy to come to the conclusion that Irans political system is dominated by men in robes carrying AKs who plan terrorist attacks by day and carry them out by night. And while its true that the political scene in Tehran is treacherous, the governmental system is actually quite democratic.

Unlike US allies in Turkey and Saudi Arabia, who are almost exclusively controlled by a select group of leaders at the top, Irans parliament has a relatively large amount of power. Irans president, who is elected from a slate of candidates nominated by an array of political groups in the country, is directly selected via popular vote. There are, however, needless to say, a few restrictions. The Council of Guardians, a government-organized institution, vets all candidates running for office and can disqualify office seekers for any reason they see fit. The Assembly of Experts, a non-elected body of religious, political, and military leaders are also responsible for selecting the supreme leader, who unlike the...


France seeks Global Talks on Cyberspace security and a code of good conduct "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The French government announced a Paris Call for global talks about cyberspace security aimed at laying out a shared framework of rules.

The French government is promoting a series of Global Talks on cyberspace security, it urges for a code of good conduct for states in the cyberspace.

Events such as the interference in the 2016 Presidential election or massive attacks like WannaCry and NotPetya increase the sense of urgency among states.

The risk of escalation and retaliation in cyberspace, the increasing number of cyber attacks and cyber threats even more sophisticated could have a destabilizing effect on international peace and security. The risk of conflict between states caused so cyber incidents encourages all States to engage in law-abiding, norm-respecting and confidence-building behavior in their use of ICT.

Im one of the authors of the G7 DECLARATION ON RESPONSIBLE STATES BEHAVIOR IN CYBERSPACE that were signed in 2017 during the Italy G7 meeting.

I had the honor to be a member of the group that worked on the proposal for voluntary, non-binding norms of State behavior during peacetime. We presented 12 points aimed to propose stability and security in the cyberspace. The declaration invites all the States to collaborate with the intent to reduce risks to international peace, security, and stability.

The decision of the French government aims to relaunch the discussion of the adoption of a framework for norms of state behavior in the cyberspace, a sort of prosecution of the work started last year during the G7 meeting.

Officials said the text, to be presented by President Emmanuel Macron as he opens UNESCOs Internet Governance Forum in Paris on Monday, has been signed by most European countries. reads the press release published by AFP.

During the G7 meeting emerged the need to open the discussion to other states, including China, Russia, and India.

Now China, Russia, and the United States have not yet joined to the initiative, even if major firms and organizations like Microsoft and the NGO Internet Society believe that a supplementary effort is essential to define the framework.

The identity and number of signatories are to be released later Monday, following a lunch hosted at the Elysee Palace by Macron for dozens of technology executives and off...


MPs would receive 24,000 in retroactive payments stirs Greeces political kitchen "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Greek lawmakers secretly voted last week that they are also entitled to retroactive salary payments as those civil servants in the category of special payrolls, media reported on Monday.

According to a press release issued on November 12 by the Union for the Protection of Labor (ENIPEKK), each lawmaker is entitled to a amount of 24,442 euros in retroactive payments from the state.

The amount refers to wages cuts of 1,111 for each MP for the time period of 22 months.

According to the Greek Constitution wages for MPs are equivalent to the President of Areios Pagos, the countrys Supreme Court, the statement said among others.

Short time later, former SYRIZA MP Alexis Mitropoulos was claiming towards media that the legislation last week about retroactive payments to judges automatically means also retroactive payments to lawmakers.

The news spread like a wildfire and as expected, triggered an outrage in a country where millions of private sector workers earn wages insufficient to make a descent living.

Main opposition New Democracy quickly reacted to the news and issued a statement accoridng to which party leader Kyriakos Mitsotakis has ordered lawmakers to abolish their right to receive the retroactive payments.

Similar announcements were issued by the Movement of Change (PASOK/KINAL) and To Potami. Both parties stressed in their statements that their MPs cannot claim these payments when the Greeks are tested in harsh economic times.

While the political kitchen pot was being stirred again, Parliament Speaker Nikos Voutsis  declared even if with some delay that MPs are not entitled for retroactive payments because of the amendment last week.

He reminded that lawmakers salaries were reduced by 10% as of 1. January 2016 (decision November 2015) and that the retroactive legislation is valid for cut wages from August 2012 until June 2014. Furthermore he added that MPs salaries are disconnected from the judges salaries since 2008.

ND, KINAL and To Potami should have asked at the Parliament first and confirm the news before going public, Voutsis said calling the whole issue nonsense!

Fact is that Greeces political parties are super quick to react to whatever X-, Y- or Z-claim and sometimes one has to spend half a day to find out what is fake and what is true.

UK Banks Refuse To Return Venezuelas Gold "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Russia and Venezuela are among the countries the EU, including Great Britain, has imposed sanctions on. Both nations have been targets of Londons vigorous attacks, being blamed for numerous nefarious things they have allegedly done. The UK insists that everyone play by the rules. Meanwhile, London is making mockery of commonly accepted norms in the international relations. The government of Venezuela is seeking to eventually repatriate at least 14 tons of gold held at the Bank of England (BOE). It has recently asked to release the gold bars worth about 420 million or $550 million. This is the right and timely move as the new round of punitive measures recently imposed on Caracas by Washington showed.

Merkels coalition wont last the next year: SPD youth leader "IndyWatch Feed War"

The leader of the German Social Democrats youth wing said on Monday that Chancellor Angela Merkels coalition with the SPD will not survive the next year.

Kevin Kuehnert

The awkward alliance has been marred by disputes about immigration and the fate of the domestic spy chief since it took office in March, coming close to collapse twice. Voters punished both Merkels conservatives and the SPD in two recent regional elections.

SPD youth wing leader Kevin Kuehnert, who campaigned against the conservative-SPD tie-up from the outset, said the SPD would be closely watching what happens when Merkel steps down as leader of her Christian Democrats (CDU) in December.

Next year is full of (regional) elections and political developments that will have a big impact, Kuehnert told Deutschlandfunk radio.

I can hardly imagine us sticking together for the year. We have to use our time to prepare for the D-Day of snap elections.

Kuehnert said he hardly knew anyone who believed the coalition would survive to the end of this parliament in 2021.

SPD leader Andrea Nahles has said that the SPD leadership, under pressure from a restive membership over flagging polls and disastrous regional election showings, did not discuss quitting the coalition at a meeting last Monday.

Interior Minister Horst Seehofer, the leader of Merkels Bavarian allies and a critic of her liberal asylum policies, told members of his Christian Social Union (CSU) that he wants to resign as party chief, party sources told Reuters on Sunday.

Seehofer has been a thorn in Merkels side for much of the past three years, taking a hard line on immigration.

Senior CSU member Manfred Weber told the newspaper Bild that Seehofer had said on Sunday that 2019 would be a year of renewal and the CSU leader would announce further details this week.

La administracin del conflicto no da soluciones de fondo a la crisis de derechos humanos en Mxico "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

En numerosas ocasiones se ha dicho que Mxico se encuentra ante una grave crisis de derechos humanos. En el ao 2015, la Comisin Interamericana de Derechos Humanos se refiri a la situacin en Mxico como una grave crisis de violencia y de seguridad. En su libro Estado de emergencia, el periodista uruguayo Carlos Fazio seala que lo que se vive en Mxico es una crisis civilizatoria. Otros ms sealan que lo que tenemos ante nosotros es una crisis de institucionalidad.

Pues bien, el pasado 6 de noviembre el Centro Carter y Elementa DDHH presentaron en las instalaciones de la Comisin de Derechos Humanos del Distrito Federal un estudio que abona a sostener dicho argumento. Se titula: Retos para la transformacin: Trayectoria institucional para hacer frente a graves violaciones a derechos humanos en Mxico.

El estudio hace un recorrido sobre cmo han ido cambiando la estructura orgnica y las normas que regulan el comportamiento de la administracin pblica federal y cmo han influido tanto los organismos internacionales como las organizaciones de la sociedad civil en el diseo institucional. Las conclusiones a las que llega son muy aleccionadoras. Yo me voy a centrar en tres de ellas.

La primera, y quiz de las ms importantes, es la conclusin en el sentido de que la institucionalizacin de las polticas pblicas de derechos humanos en la administracin pblica federal se ha concentrado en lo que el estudio denomina la administracin de conflictos. En otras palabras, la administracin pblica federal ha centrado sus acciones en materia de derechos humanos en impulsar algunos cambios que son la mayor de las veces superficiales y que, por ende, no estn orientados a transformar conductas o prcticas, sino meramente a despresurizar el ambiente. Es decir, no van dirigidas a resolver los problemas desde su raz.

La segunda conclusin que quiero resaltar es la relacionada con la creacin de institucionalidad en las fuerzas armadas, que ha ocurrido slo en funcin de las necesidades que se van identificando para efecto de administrar el conflicto. En este sentido, se aprecia segn lo evidenciado en el estudio, que la creacin de ciertas reas orient...

The ABG Chief Secretary, JOSEPH NOBETAU today released names of ten Public servants that were dismissed from the Bougainville Public service last Friday.
In making the announcement, MR. NOBETAU said that the decision to dismiss these officers was not taken lightly but was taken as a last resort.
He said the decision to dismiss an officer has much more implications, not just on the individual themselves, but also their families.
However as the head of the Public service he could not tolerate actions that defraud the government t or undermine the important work that we do.
The Chief Secretary said that as Public servants all of us must project a professional image and all of us have an obligation to comply with the law.
He said those who steal do not steal from the government, but from the people of Bougainville and they must be held accountable.
MR. NOBETAU said that these officers that have been dismissed were implicated in significant misconduct.
He said that seven officers from the Department of Personal Management and administrative services were found through the ABG payroll audit to have manipulated systems and processes for personal gain.
Collectively these individuals stole more than THREE HUNDRED SIXTY THOUSAND KINA from the public purse.
He said that this was a blatant theft and was undertaken for personal gain.
The chief Secretary said such actions cannot go un-punished and he also confirmed that he has referred all officers implicated to the national fraud squad for investigation.
He said that he expects that those responsible will be prosecuted, if found guilty and should be held to the highest standards of criminal law.
MR. NOBETAU also said that three officers from the Department of Community Government have also been dismissed owing to a substantial fraud where large sums of monies were misappropriated from the Disaster trust fund.
Again these matters have been referred to the Police for further investigations.

Yemeni War Deaths Underestimated By Five To One "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In April, I made new estimates of the death toll in Americas post-2001 wars in a three-part Intrepid Report series I estimated that these wars have now killed several million people.

Now one of the NGOs responsible for understating war deaths in Yemen has acknowledged that it was underestimating them by at least five to one, as I suggested in my report. One of the sources I examined for my report was a U.K.-based NGO named ACLED (Armed Conflict Location and Event Data Project), which has compiled counts of war deaths in Libya, Somalia and Yemen.

There are little prospects for peace talks to settle the Yemeni conflict as the Saudi-UAE-led coalition continues its large-scale push against Ansar Allah (also known as the Houthis) and its allies across western Yemen.

The most intense clashes are still ongoing in the area of the city of al-Hudayday in the western part of the country. After an initial success of the coalition and its local proxies in the area, their advance has slowed down. Furthermore, coalition-led forces have suffered significant casualties hundreds of fighters and tens of pieces of military equipment.

Ansar Allah advance south of al-Hudaydah played an important role in the dfefense of the port city. The Yemeni movement cut off the coalitions supply line near Jabalia.

At the same time, clashes between Ansar Allah and coalition-led forces are also ongoing in the the areas of Qamt and Juban in southern Yemen as well as in the areas of Malahit and Kitaf in northern Yemen.

Cross Shard Transactions at 10 Million Requests Per Second "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Submitted via IRC for Bytram

Cross shard transactions at 10 million requests per second

Dropbox stores petabytes of metadata to support user-facing features and to power our production infrastructure. The primary system we use to store this metadata is named Edgestore and is described in a previous blog post, (Re)Introducing Edgestore. In simple terms, Edgestore is a service and abstraction over thousands of MySQL nodes that provides users with strongly consistent, transactional reads and writes at low latency.

Edgestore hides details of physical sharding from the application layer to allow developers to scale out their metadata storage needs without thinking about complexities of data placement and distribution. Central to building a distributed database on top of individual MySQL shards in Edgestore is the ability to collocate related data items together on the same shard. Developers express logical collocation of data via the concept of a colo, indicating that two pieces of data are typically accessed together. In turn, Edgestore provides low-latency, transactional guarantees for reads and writes within a given colo (by placing them on the same physical MySQL shard), but only best-effort support across colos.

Will the US Stand Up for Asia Bibi? "IndyWatch Feed War"

Will the U.S. stand up for Asia Bibi? The story of Asia Bibi is a tragedy beyond proportions. It also provides us a test as to just how committed the West is to human rights with some countries, including the GREAT Britain failing miserably.

Bibi is a Pakistani Christian woman and mother of four who was jailed in Pakistan under a trumped up charge of blasphemy nine years ago. The fact that she was in jail for almost a decade is horrific enough, but saga is still ongoing.

While the Pakistani Supreme Court remarkably and finally found her innocent and ordered her release, riots took place across the country clamoring not only for her death but also for the death of the three judges who found her innocent.

This shows not only the complete breakdown of law and order in Pakistan, but reveals the psyche of a people gone mad with the taste of blood in its mouth.

There was a rumor that Bibi had been allowed to leave the country, but Pakistan vehemently denied this. Fortunately, her lawyer fled the country and is vying for her release from a non-disclosed location in Europe.

So what should Bibi do? Stay in Pakistan and be killed? This is certainly what will happen if she stays. Her only option is to get asylum in another country. Her lawyer and supporters are trying to accomplish this.

Meanwhile, the UK, a leading Western power, shamefully refused entry to Bibi citing fears of reprisals from its Muslim population. Is this what the world has come to? We seem to have lost our souls and the capacity to think about who is a REAL refugee is and what a REAL human rights violation is.

Apple Announces Repair Program For Faulty iPhone X and 13-Inch MacBook Pro Units "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Apple offers free repairs to fix quality problems in some faulty iPhone X units and 13-inch MacBook Pro models

Apple has launched a free replacement programme around the world for the affected iPhone X owners who are experiencing touchscreen issues.

Apparently, Apple found out that screens of some iPhone X models either arent responsive to touch or responds intermittently to touch. In some cases, it noted that iPhone screen reacts even though it was not touched.

Apple has determined that some iPhone X displays may experience touch issues due to a component that might fail on the display module. Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will replace the display module on eligible devices, free of charge. the company said on the official support page.

According to Apple, the touch issues may be due to a component failure on the iPhone Xs display module, adding it would fix the screen on faulty devices for free. The company said the problem only affects the original iPhone X, and not the recently launched the iPhone XS, XS Max and XR.

Apple has noted that if the iPhone X owner has already replaced the screen prior to the replacement programme, he/she is eligible to get a refund. They are advised to contact Apple support for more information.

However, Apple warns iPhone X owners that If your iPhone X has any damage which impairs the ability to complete the repair, such as a cracked screen, that issue will need to be resolved prior to the service. In some cases, there may be a cost associated with the additional repair.

Meanwhile, Apple has also confirmed that a limited number of 13-inch MacBook Pro units were facing a hard drive problem, that could result in data loss and failure of the storage drive.

In a note to customers, the company says, Apple has determined that a limited number of 128GB and 256GB solid-state drives (SSD) used in 13-inch MacBook Pro (non-TouchBar) units have an issue that may result in data loss and failure of the drive. The company suggests affected users to have their laptops serviced as soon as possible.

Users can put in their serial number on a page on the Apple Support website to confirm if they have an affected MacBook Pro. The affected model in question is the MacBook Pro (13-inch, 2017, Two Thunderbolt 3 ports). No other macOS notebooks are experiencing hard drive issues.

Iran: court sentences 15 workers to prison and flogging for striking "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Thousands With Disabilities Have Lost the Right to Vote "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Though an estimated 113 million US citizens got to vote in the midterms, thousands more were left out unable to vote or even register because of laws that consider them mentally incapable of doing so.

These state laws affect the thousands of adults in the US under guardianships people who, because of a disability, have been determined legally to be incapable of performing necessary daily tasks for themselves, and therefore are in need of a guardian to help them.

The status of their right to vote much as for convicted felons is determined by the state they live in. However, unlike the widely publicized disenfranchisement of felons, many people are unaware of the problems facing those under guardianship.

This is an issue that, for the large part, I think, flies under the radar if you are not working on it, Michelle Bishop, voting rights specialist for the National Disability Rights network, told WhoWhatWhy. Its not being talked about. The average American doesnt know this type of thing happens, that you can have your right to vote denied based on having a disability.

People can be placed under guardianship, or conservatorship, as it is known in some states, or interdictions, the equivalent in Louisiana, for a surprisingly wide range of reasons. The umbrella covers everything from mental illnesses, like severe schizophrenia, to cognitive disabilities like Down Syndrome, and even physical disabilities, such as a lack of motor function in their limbs that prevent individuals from going about their daily lives without assistance.

There is no legal distinction between a guardianship for someone with a mental disability and one for someone with physical disabilities. If the law in a particular state prevents people under guardianship from voting, the ward cant vote. If the probate judge overseeing the guardianship hearing finds that the person isnt competent regardless of the judges reason for making that call the ward cant vote.

In many states, those who are placed under guardianship are deemed to fit the legal definition of either mentally incapacitated or mentally incompetent.

New Part Day: A $6 Linux Computer You Might Be Able To Write Code For "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The latest news from the world of cheap electronics is a single board computer running Linux. It costs six dollars, and you can buy it right now. You might even be able to compile code for it, too.

The C-Sky Linux development board is listed on Taobao as an OrangePi NanoPi Raspberry Pi Linux Development Board and despite some flagrant misappropriation of trademarks, this is indeed a computer running Linux, available for seven American dollars.

This board is based on a NationalChip GX6605S SoC, a unique chip with an ISA that isnt ARM, x86, RISC-V, MIPS, or anything else that would be considered normal. The chip itself was designed for set-top boxes, but there are a surprising number of build tools that include buildroot, GCC and support for qemu. The company behind this chip is maintaining a kernel, and support for this chip has been added to the mainline kernel. Yes, unlike many other single board computers out there, you might actually be able to compile something for this chip.

The features for this board include 64 MB of DDR2 RAM, HDMI out (with a 1280 x 720 framebuffer, upscaled to 1080p, most likely), and a CPU running at just about 600 MHz. There are a few buttons connected to the GPIO pins, two USB host ports, a USB-TTL port for a serial console, and a few more pins for additional GPIOs. There does not appear to be any networking, and we have no idea what the onboard storage is.

If you want a challenge to get something compiled, this is the chip for you.

Antifa thugs crack the door on Tucker Carlsons home as Fox News host says Left-wing extremism out of control

Last week when he was still at the Fox News studios in Washington, D.C., preparing for his nightly program, Tucker Carlson began getting frantic text messages on his cellphone.

It seemed that something was terribly wrong at his home: A group of people were gathering there and shouting obscenities and other things as his wife and children retreated in fear inside the house.

It turns out that the group of people were more Antifa thugs and had gathered at the conservative hosts place of residence to violently intimidate him and his family simply because he has a political perspective that differs from theirs.

Its important to point out that these thugs did not show up at Carlsons home to protest. During their initial assault, some Antifa terrorists banged and beat on his front door so hard that it cracked, as others spoke openly of bringing a pipe bomb the next time they came.

I called my wife, Carlson told The Washington Post. She had been in the kitchen alone getting ready to go to dinner and she heard pounding on the front door and screaming. Someone started throwing himself against the front door and actually cracked the front door.

He went on to say that his wife believed she was about to be victimized by home invaders, so she locked herself in the pantry and called 911. Tucker and his wife have four kids, but fortunately none of them wer...

Kyrgyzstan survives on money made by migrant workers, but it doesnt know how to spend it "IndyWatch Feed"

No country in the world is as dependent on remittances as Kyrgyzstan. But this money is often used by families to survive, and allows the state to avoid its obligations to its citizens. 

Illustration: Daria Udalova.

This article was originally published on Kloop, a Kyrgyz investigative website. We translate it here with their permission.

Altynai, 24, doesnt know what she will do if her parents stop sending money from Russia. Shell be in a hopeless situation without those 20,000 soms (220) a month this money is her only way of surviving. For the past three years, Altynai (name changed) has been living with her grandmother, whose pension isnt enough to buy anything.

She says that residents of her village in the Batken region of Kyrgyzstan frequently leave to work abroad. Theres never enough jobs here in Leylek district, which is bordered by Tajikistan on three sides. There are no new enterprises being opened. Most people work for low wages in state institutions.

Indeed, over the past decade, more and more people have been leaving Kyrgyzstan to work abroad. In Russia alone, there are more than 800,000 Kyrgyz citizens on the migration register. Most of them come to work. In 2017, they made money transfers to Kyrgyzstan totalling $2.5 billion which was more than the total state annual expenditure.

On Tuesday night,  Somali Muslim refugee Ilhan Omar became one of the first Muslim congresswomen in U.S. history, alongside Rashida Tlaib. At her acceptance speech, Omar greeted the audience with a powerful As-Salam-Alaikum.

Many Muslims felt this was a homecoming. American Muslims now had Muslim representation in Congress after what they felt were two tumultuous years of a Trump presidency. Writer and host Aymann Ismail shared how he felt transported by the gesture. However, others were not quite so sure they were comfortable with it.

Li Izmir runs a popular Facebook page called Secular Muslim Women Group. It was there she confided her conflicted feelings about Omars gesture, admitting, I feel mixed about this. Im happy to see Muslim representation (and I think both Muslim women support LGBTQ+ rights) but I dont like religious rhetoric coming from government officials regardless of which faith is being brought into politics. Why cant we just all swear on the Constitution and keep religion out of politics?

Izmir went on to add, I feel like theres a double standard coming from a liberal leaning side. If a Christian brings up religion, people will lose it but if a Muslim does the same thing, theyll celebrate. In reality, I think religion has no place in official government spaces and it should be equally called out.

Her honest admission brought forward a dialogue among the women, many of whom were also not quick to celebrate what they saw as religious rhetoric by an e...


Who is Afraid of American Sanctions? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The American administration under Trump has become so addicted to waging economic sanctions; a new form of war, against other countries to a point where it does not hesitate to break international laws, to impose sanctions against its strategic allies, and to face the risk of international condemnation and isolation as a result. The sanctions against Iran falls in such categories. Keeping in mind the failure of the last 40 years old international sanctions against Iran one questions the logic behind imposing such fruitless sanctions? What do these sanctions have to do with Israel?

Scientists discover the mechanism for how dad's stresses get passed along to offspring "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mouse studies show tiny intercellular pods convey to sperm a legacy of a father's hard knocks in life A stressed-out and traumatized father can leave scars in his children. New research suggests this happens because sperm "learn" paternal experiences via a mysterious mode of intercellular communication in which small blebs break off one cell and fuse with another. Carrying proteins, lipids and nucleic acids, these particles ejected from a cell act like a postal system that extends to all parts of the body, releasing little packages known as extracellular vesicles. Their contents seem carefully chosen. "The cargo inside the vesicle determines not just where it came from but where it's going and what it's doing when it gets there," says Tracy Bale, a neurobiologist at the University of Maryland School of Medicine. Preliminary research Bale and others, announced this week at the annual meeting of the Society for Neuroscience in San Diego, shows how extracellular vesicles can regulate...

We are now before the 100th anniversary of World War I, the war that was supposed to end all wars. While honoring the 16 million who died in this conflict, we should also condemn the memory of the politicians, officials and incompetent generals who created this horrendous blood bath. I've walked most of the Western Front of the Great War, visited its battlefields and haunted forts, and seen the seas of crosses marking its innumerable cemeteries. As a former soldier and war correspondent, I've always considered WWI as the stupidest, most tragic and catastrophic of all modern wars. The continuation of this conflict, World War II, killed more people and brought more destruction on civilians in firebombed cities but, at least for me, World War I holds a special horror and poignancy. This war was not only an endless nightmare for the soldiers in their pestilential trenches, it also violently ended the previous 100 years of glorious European civilization, one of mankind's most noble...

There is little doubt the Nazis were experts in the art supremacy and extremism. They continue today to inspire numerous groups who copy their methods to wreak terror on the world. Yet the relationship between the Nazis and todays jihadis stretches back to the 1930s. Clarion marks the 100th anniversary of the end of The Great War with a new film on Nazis and Islamists.

On November 11, we marked the 100th anniversary of the end of World War I (November 11, 1918). The armistice left the major issues unresolved and Germany seethed under the harsh conditions of the treaty.

Extremism was not only allowed to fester, it was viewed as a strategy to regain victory for Germany. It is wise to understand the driving forces which contributed to the terrible destruction and Holocaust of World War II and its empowerment of radical Islam.

Turkey claims Greece tries to misappropriate Libyas Exclusive Economic Zone "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Turkey claims that Greece is trying to steal part of the Exclusive Economic Zone of Libya. Defense Minister and retired Army General Hulusi Akar presented maps to convince about his claim.

According to Akar, Greece is trying to misappropriate Libyas rights to Exclusive Economic Zone bu seizing 39,000 square kilometers south of Crete.

Of, course, Turkeys problem is not Libyas EEZ and the countrys rights but its own aspirations in the area and in hydrocarbon resources.

According to another map, Turkeys Exclusive Economic Zone in the South allegedly borders to Libyas EEZ with no Greek EEZ in-between.

Last month Akar presented another deliberately drawn map that showed an extension of Turkeys EEZ.

We shouldnt be surprised if Ankara claims one day that its EEZ reaches to Gibraltar and why not, also New York and even Australia. In order to build fronts against Greece, it apparently tries to win Libya on its side.

Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up "IndyWatch Feed"

News Release from Physicians for Social Responsibility LA:
Woolsey Fire Burns Nuclear Meltdown Site that State Toxics Agency Failed to Clean Up
Nov 9, 2018
For Immediate Release: November 9, 2018
Last night, the Woolsey fire burned the contaminated Santa Susana Field Laboratory (SSFL), a former nuclear and rocket engine testing site. Footage from local television showed flames surrounding rocket test stands, and the fires progress through to Oak Park indicates that much of the toxic site burned.

A statement released by the California Dept. of Toxic Substances Control (DTSC) said that its staff, do not believe the fire has caused any releases of hazardous materials that would pose a risk to people exposed to the smoke. The statement failed to assuage community concerns given DTSCs longtime pattern of misinformation about SSFLs contamination and its repeated broken promises to clean it up.

We cant trust anything that DTSC says, said West Hills resident Melissa Bumstead, whose young daughter has twice survived leukemia that she blames on SSFL and who has mapped 50 other cases of rare pediatric cancers near the site. Bumstead organized a group called Parents vs. SSFL and launched a petition demanding full cleanup of SSFL that has been signed by over 410,000 people. DTSC repeatedly minimizes risk from SSFL and has broken every promise it ever made about the SSFL cleanup. Communities throughout the state have also been failed by DTSC. The public has no confidence in this troubled agency, said Bumstead.

Nuclear reactor accidents, including a famous partial meltdown, tens of thousands of rocket engine tests, and sloppy environmental practices have left SSFL polluted with widespread radioactive and chemical contamination. Government-funded studies indicate increased cancers for offsite populations associated with proximity to the site, and that contamination migrates offsite over EPA levels of concern. In 2010, DTSC signed agreements with the Department of Energy and NASA that committed them to clean up all detectable contamination in their operational areas by 2017. DTSC also in 2010 committed to require Boeing, which owns most of the site, to cleanup to comparable standards. But the cleanup has not yet begun, and DTSC is currently considering proposals that will leave much, if not all, of SSFLs contamination on site permanently.

Dr. Robert Dodge, President of Physicians for Social Responsibility-Los Angeles, shares the communitys concerns. We k...

Monsanto and Bayer are moving to create a marijuana monopoly "IndyWatch Feed World"

You've heard of Monopoly, right? The fun little board game with fake money, little plastic houses, and get out of jail free cards? It's a great way to pass the time. That is, depending on who you're playing with. But when it comes to real-life properties, business, and products, however, a monopoly becomes a whole lot more dangerous. Two major companies, Monsanto and Bayer, have recently joined together and seem to be plotting to take over the cannabis industry. In other words, create a monopoly on marijuana.

Bright lasers will allow scientists to use atomic gas for quantum computing qubit storage "IndyWatch Feed World"

Despite the fact that universal quantum computers have not yet been realized, the principle of calculation upon which it is based allows researchers to solve highly complex problems. In quantum computing, a qubit or quantum bit is the basic unit of quantum information - equivalent to the binary bit (the smallest unit of data in a digital computer) within a two-state device. In such networks, qubits are transported using light (as single photons of light can carry a qubit). However, these photons, which move at the speed of light, nonetheless need to be stored. A qubit can be stored in a quantum state of extremely cold gas as long as the qubit can be emitted as a photon. However, new research reveals that physicists can also store quantum information in a gas using what is called the 'hammer' approach, ArsTechnica reported Friday. An atom can be in one of three states. Two of those states, almost at the same energy level, are known as the 'ground' and 'storage' states. A ground...

  • Behind the scenes with Linux containers

    Can you have Linux containers without Docker? Without OpenShift? Without Kubernetes?

    Yes, you can. Years before Docker made containers a household term (if you live in a data center, that is), the LXC project developed the concept of running a kind of virtual operating system, sharing the same kernel, but contained within defined groups of processes.

    Docker built on LXC, and today there are plenty of platforms that leverage the work of LXC both directly and indirectly. Most of these platforms make creating and maintaining containers sublimely simple, and for large deployments, it makes sense to use such specialized services. However, not everyones managing a large deployment or has access to big services to learn about containerization. The good news is that you can create, use, and learn containers with nothing more than a PC running Linux and this article. This article will help you understand containers by looking at LXC, how it works, why it works, and how to troubleshoot when something goes wrong.

David Wilcock on Ending the Divide In the ET/UFO Community "IndyWatch Feed World"

David Wilcock On Ending The Divide In The ET/UFO Community

November 10, 2018

Source: Collective Evolution | By Joe Martino


The Facts: The ET and UFO community has been met with a great deal of drama and divide over the years. I have seen it deeply in only 10 years in the space. So I asked David Wilcock to share his thoughts on how we can come together.

Reflect On: Do you find yourself all out disliking people in this space due to one or two things they said you didn't like? Do you create any 'us vs them' feelings with certain people and certain aspects of this space? If so, do you feel this helps or divides?

The more time you spend on the forums, pages, commenting sections and events that touch the ET and UFO community, the more you realize it is like anything else: there are deep differences and deep divides.

Youve heard it, the lashing out on stage or online from various figureheads, calling out others in the space as not having their facts straight or being infiltrated by intelligence communities etc. This then goes online in an even bigger way, spreading through comments, forums and everything else, creating more confusion amongst people. In essence, its a giant distraction.

I found out how intense this really was when first became a lot more involved within the community 5 years ago. So I decided to make it a personal mission to begin mending relationships in the space. Further to that, we committed to producing our content the way we do at CE, in our view, has encouraged both leaders and the viewers in the space to begin thinking differently about how we create hate, divides and focus on differences. To us, this is truly walking the talk when it comes to the unity message of the movement.

'Wallace & Gromit' Producer Aardman Animations Transfers Ownership to Employees

In an era of entertainment industry mergers and acquisitions, the founders of British animation powerhouse Aardman the much-loved Oscar-winning studio behind Wallace & Gromit and Shaun the Sheep have moved to ensure their companys continued independence by transferring it into employee ownership.

The decision, made by Peter Lord and David Sproxton, who first set up Aardman in 1972, will see the majority of company shares transferred into a trust, which will then hold them on behalf of the workforce.

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter, both Lord and Sproxton explained that the move was about seven years in the making, and while it wasnt an indicator of their imminent departure, meant that Aardman was in the best possible shape for when that moment came and would help secure its creative legacy and culture.

Weve spent so much time building this company up and being so profoundly attached to it. Its not a business to us, its everything, its our statement to the world, said Lord. Having done that for so many years, the last thing we wanted to do was to just flog it off to someone.

Outcome of Donbass elections make it clear people support integration with Russia "IndyWatch Feed World"

The outcome of the Sunday elections of heads of the self-proclaimed Donetsk and Lugansk People's Republics (DPR, LPR), as well as People's Councils elections, have made it clear that people in Donbass support the policy of integration with Russia, head of the Russian Center for Current Politics Alexei Chesnakov told TASS on Monday. When commenting on the elections' outcome, he pointed to some important conclusions. "First, the election campaigns and the unprecedented voter turnout prove that people support the policy the Donbass republics' authorities adopted in 2014. It undoubtedly is a victory for pro-Russian voters and pro-Russian political forces," the expert stressed. "Second, the Donbass republics have shown that their political institutions are mature enough to create conditions for legal elections," he added. "Third, the current authorities have achieved clear success, which is a result of people's trust in their leaders," Chesnakov went on to say. "Despite the hardships...


Turkey announces successful test of 'Sapan' railgun hypervelocity weapon "IndyWatch Feed World"

Ankara announced that it successfully tested an electromagnetic kinetic weapon, joining a club of developers alongside Russia, the US, China, and India. Turkey announced a successful test of its new electromagnetic weapon - referred to as 'railgun' - which shoots metallic projectiles at hypersonic speeds. Turkey is the fifth country in the world to develop the weapon, after Russia, the US, China and India. The weapon has been named "Tbitak Sapan," or "Tbitak Slingshot," after Turkey's Scientific and Technological Research Council (Tbitak). Weapons similar to Sapan are capable of firing a projectile as far as 100 km, at speeds of up to 3,500 meters per second (12,600 km/h).


Masks off? Syrian opposition undergoes rebranding, changes flag "IndyWatch Feed World"

Besieged in the Idlib province, the Syrian opposition, interlaced deeply with the former Nusra Front, has undergone another rebranding, changing its flag to bear a Shahada religious inscription. As the operation against terrorists in Syria comes close to its end, terrorists besieged in the Idlib province have undergone another rebranding, this time changing their flag. The so-called "Syrian Revolution Flag" - a green, white and black tricolor with three red stars, adopted back in 2012 - became a unifying symbol for a large variety of smaller terrorist and opposition movements (Daesh excluded) that fought against the elected government of President Bashar Assad throughout the entire Syrian war. In 2015, the flag saw a new wave of popularity as the Syrian opposition sought to distance itself from Daesh and other radical jihadists.

Low-level spectral features, computed from snippets as short as twenty milliseconds
That quantify the dynamism of amplitude, frequency and energy,
And those longer range syllabic aspects that human ears are tuned to,
Such as pitch and intensity.

Alarm over talks to implant employees with microchips "IndyWatch Feed War"

Trades Union Congress concerned over tech being used to control and micromanage

Britains biggest employer organisation and main trade union body have sounded the alarm over the prospect of British companies implanting staff with microchips to improve security.

UK firm BioTeq, which offers the implants to businesses and individuals, has already fitted 150 implants in the UK.

The tiny chips, implanted in the flesh between the thumb and forefinger, are similar to those for pets. They enable people to open their front door, access their office or start their car with a wave of their hand, and can also store medical data.

Another company, Biohax of Sweden, also provides human chip implants the size of a grain of rice. It told the Sunday Telegraph () that it is in discussions with several British legal and financial firms about fitting their employees with microchips, including one major company with hundreds of thousands of employees.

The CBI, which represents 190,000 UK businesses, voiced concerns about the prospect.

A CBI spokesperson said: While technology is changing the way we work, this makes for distinctly uncomfortable reading. Firms should be conce...

It is the same scenario with the Bar Associations telling new JD graduates that they have to have a Bar Card....again, that is true, if they want to be a prosecutor for the federal government corporations and their "federated state of state franchises" and become an employee of the courtbut not otherwise.

The fact is that there is no requirement for anyone to be a Bar Association Member to engage in the profession of law in this country and there never have been.

I challenge anyone anywhere to prove that there is any general requirement to be a Bar Member, in order to use the court facilities, present cases, or offer effective counsel to others with or without pay.

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By Rinus Verhagen

Dear people, following the article of yesterday 11 Nov. 18

Do I have an inspiration how we can speed up the stock market crash itself. I've made a blog about the smart meter and 5G, which dangers we are exposed to unasked for and unintentionally. This section explains exactly what harmful effects it has on people, animals and nature.

Hold the CEO and the company liable, Telecom, Energy companies and Housing corporations that cooperate with this with a claim of 1000 per person per day. Encourage as many people as possible to file a claim with these companies.

As a result, this CEO will resign if he personally and his company receive a claim for unsolicited terror. The company will be rudderless and the stock market value will be reduced to zero by the mass of claims. This means that the whole fiat debt system will implode.

The RV/GCR can only start when the stock exchanges collapse, so we have a tool to do this.

Then people who have been promised funds can buy these companies from the bankruptcy, decentralize them and give the energy for free to the population.

The population now pays 80% of the bill and companies that use 80% only 20% of the bill. Companies will pay 100% and settle this with their products and services.

All personnel are employed by GESARA, which means that the entrepreneur can produce much cheaper. He will also receive an i...


Turkish investigative journalist reveals Khashoggi's final moments were spent begging for life while being choked to death with plastic bag "IndyWatch Feed World"

Washington Post columnist Jamal Khashoggi spent his last moments begging for a plastic bag to be removed from his head, according to a Turkish investigative journalist.

An Iranian citizen pleaded guilty in a U.S. court to charges that he attempted to facilitate smuggling nuclear technology to Iran in violation of U.S. laws.

Arash Sepehri, 38, faces a minimum of five years in prisons for trying to obtain and export to Iran high-resolution sonar equipment, data input boards, rugged laptops, acoustic transducers and other controlled technology from the U.S. without obtaining proper licenses and in violation of economic sanctions.

Sepehri was an employee and a member of the board of the Iranian company Tajhiz Sanat Shayan (TSS) according to court documents.  TSS and other companies involved in the conspiracy were also listed by the European Union as entities sanctioned for their involvement in the procurement of components for the Iranian nuclear program.

As stated in the court documents, Sepehri and his co-conspirators sought to evade legal controls through a variety of means, including the use of a variety of aliases, United Arab Emirates (UAE)-based front companies and an intermediary shipping company based in Hong Kong.  Payments for the goods were arranged through the UAE, read a statement from the Department of Justice.

Jones then went up to his bedroom nightstand, picked up a Springfield XDS handgun and fired several rounds into the ceiling, the paper reported. Jones proceeded to grab a second handgun, a Springfield XDM, and fired another volley through the walls. One of those rounds went through a window, striking a neighbor's house. Court records state Jones made threats of self-harm, which he has a history of making.
