Gavin Francis: The Spanish Flu "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

It is estimated that five hundred million people contracted it, and that between fifty and a hundred million of them died. Asians were thirty times more likely to die than Europeans. The pandemic had some influence on the lives of everyone alive today. Donald Trumps grandfather Friedrich died from it in New York City. He was 49. His early death meant that his fortune passed to his son Fred, who used it to start a New York property empire.

Colin Kidd: About Last Year "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Postmodern Britain lies well beyond Orwells imagining, a country where superannuated teenagers in certain walks of middle-class life, including journalism and politics, stay in a condition of more or less permanent adolescence from puberty to retirement. Surely its time for the authentically middle-aged we know who we are: square, clapped out, disillusioned and cardiganed to take charge before the inheritance is squandered?

Lorna Finlayson: Can the law be feminist? "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The difference between Catharine MacKinnon and a typical pro-war American feminist is that MacKinnon has a far bleaker view of the condition of women in Western countries. As she sees it, they need more than top-level representation in the form of a female president, for example to perfect their equality. They are systemically brutalised in a society that refuses even to recognise what is going on. This raises the question of whether America, too, might be a legitimate target of humanitarian intervention. But that doesnt seem to be what MacKinnon has in mind when she asks: Will the marines never land for them?

T.J. Clark: Cezannes Portraits "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Hands, in this world without faces, do an enormous amount of work. They are a fulcrum for the bodies the persons they belong to: around them the body opens, exfoliates, puts on show its basic structure, displays its duality (following the hands left and right) or its multiplicity (since the hands themselves lose edges, flip from concave to convex and back, clench, disintegrate, weigh a ton, unfold into corrugations or diamond facets). They challenge the viewer to see them as part of the body they terminate. Maybe hands are where character hides in Czanne, in the carnal unconscious, however hard an individual or a culture tries to suppress it.

Lesetipp: Demokratie unter Irrationalen. Da geht es ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Lesetipp: Demokratie unter Irrationalen. Da geht es um Kahnemann und andere Hirn- und Verhaltensforscher, u.a. auch Jonathan Haidt, von dem ich gerade das Video empfohlen hatte. Wer die Bcher und Videos alle schon gelesen hat, wird hier keine groen berraschungen finden, aber fr die anderen lohnt sich das wahrscheinlich.

Ein Leser aus Duisburg berichtet:hier jaulen gerade ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Ein Leser aus Duisburg berichtet:

hier jaulen gerade alle paar Minuten die Sirenen - aber ich habe keine Ahnung, wie ich heraus bekommen soll, weshalb. Die Seiten der Stadt antworten mit irrsinniger Verzgerung, wdr und Co. haben nichts Aktuelles, und viele andere Seiten, die vielleicht etwas haben knnten, sind nicht erreichbar. Das Radio gibt auch nichts her.

Ich kann nur hoffen, dass das im Fall eines greren Problems besser klappt, aber besonders viel Hoffnung habe ich natrlich nicht. Vermutlich wrde die Stadt Duisburg dann erstmal Personal vom Straenverkehrsamt in die Abteilung fr, na ja, Web und Informationen, versetzen und anlernen mssen - und ein paar neue Server bestellen mssen. Hey, dafr ist die Homepage bunt. Was? Schnell soll sie sein? Hm. Ist aber anders realisiert :-)

Warum https://www.duisburg.de/orkanlage.php auf .php und nicht .html endet? Weil PHP so viel performanter ist als HTML? Seufz.

Ach so, mittlerweile ist die Seite da. Eine Erklrung, warum die Sirenen jaulten, gibt es allerdings nicht. Offenbar musste man nur auf den Sturm aufmerksam machen. Na ja, wer den Wind nicht hrt, hrt auch die Sirenen nicht

Oje. Und wir machten uns ber das Raketenwarnsystem der Amis lustig!

Update: Hier ist brigens die Erklrung, was die Sirenen-Signale bedeuten. Auf- und abschwellender Heulton heit: Gefahr. Dauerton heit: Entwarnung.

In der Schweiz bernimmt das Rote Kreuz Kinderbetreuung, wenn die Eltern arbeiten gehen mssen und die Kinder krank werden und zuhause bleiben mssen.

Die Dienstleistung kann nicht nur im Krankheitsfall der Kinder genutzt werden, sondern auch, wenn die Eltern selbst die Grippe haben, wenn eine weitere Geburt bevorsteht oder wenn sie psychisch berlastet sind, etwa bei einem Todesfall. Es gibt auch Anfragen von Eltern, die sehr viel Zeit fr eines ihrer Kinder aufwenden und fr die weiteren nicht gengend Betreuungszeit zur Verfgung steht, sagt Bisang.
Das ist natrlich dann nicht kostenlos. Die Gebhren richten sich nach dem Einkommen der Eltern.

Update: In Deutschland gibt es sowas, zumindest auf kommunaler Ebene, auch (hier: Hannover).

Einige Leser schreiben mir, dass man ja zwischen Regierung ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Einige Leser schreiben mir, dass man ja zwischen Regierung und Bevlkerung trennen muss. Wahlen bewirken ja eh nichts, der Whler hat keine Macht, und was DIE DA OBEN machen, da kann ich hier unten eh nur schulterzucken. Schon gar nicht kann ich dafr irgendeine Verantwortung bernehmen. Ich habe schlielich nicht gewhlt oder fr jemand anderen gewhlt oder mich auf deren Versprechen verlassen.

Ich glaube ja, dass das Absicht ist. Absichtlich herbeigefhrt. Aus Sicht der Regierung ist ja nichts nerviger als Brger, die sich einmischen. Die wollen einfach nur entspannt durchregieren. Ab und zu mal eine Entscheidung treffen, immer schn die Diten erhhen, je weniger Stress mit dem Souvern desto besser. Also ist das gesamte System darauf ausgelegt, dem Souvern das Gefhl zu geben, dass seine Stimme keinen Einfluss hat, dass er eh nichts machen kann. Das ist aus Sicht der Regierung absolut notwendig und wichtig, dass die Brger nicht das Gefhl kriegen, ihre Meinung sei gefragt, oder sie seien gar verantwortlich fr das Handeln der Regierung, wenn die z.B. US-Drohnenmordkampagnen via Ramstein duldet.

Und da frage ich euch: Ja wer denn sonst? Wer ist denn eurer Meinung nach verantwortlich? Die Merkel?! Ja, die ist halt Kanzlerin, da konnten wir nichts machen?

Einer schreibt mir gerade: Ja, mit der Argumentation, da wre ja auch die US-amerikanische Bevlkerung am Irakkrieg Schuld. JA! Ja wer denn sonst!? NATRLICH ist der Whler in der Verantwortung dafr, was seine Regierung tut! Wer nicht mindestens auf die Strae gegangen ist gegen den Krieg, der trgt mit die Verantwortung.

Unsere Verfassung geht da mit Artikel 20 ja noch einen Schritt weiter als andere und sagt explizit, dass der Brger das Recht zum Widerstand hat, wenn jemand die verfassungsmige Ordnung beseitigen will, und andere Abhilfe nicht mglich ist. Viel klarer kann man doch gar nicht ausdrcken, dass der Brger in der Verantwortung ist?

Habe ich den Eindruck, dass meine Stimme viel ausmacht? Nein. Na und? Deshalb bin ich doch nicht machtlos! Die regieren da in meinem Namen! Das Mindeste, was ich tun kann und muss, ist mich laut uern, wenn ich nicht einverstanden bin.

Und ihr solltet das genau so handhaben.

Update: Oh und natrlich knnt ihr eurer Verantwortung auch nachkommen, indem ihr Wahlhelfer/Wahlbeobachter werdet, und indem ihr zu den Veranstaltungen der Parteien in eurem Wahlkreis hingeht und Fragen stellt. Fragen wie "gibt es eine Korrelation zwischen Flchtlingen und Waffenexporten", oder zum NetzDG von mir aus.

Was machen die Klner Behrden eigentlich, wenn sie nicht gerade Bingo-Abende im Altersheim verfolgen oder Youtubern eine Rundfunklizenz aufntigen?

Ein Einsender berichtet:

NRW ist nicht nur bei der Youtuber-Rundfunklizenzierung eifrig, sondern auch beim Ahnden, wenn Elektrofahrzeuge keine "grne Plakette" haben.

Ein Bekannter fing sich ein Ticket wegen fehlender grner Plakette mit seinem Tesla ein.

Die Grne Plakette hat was mit Feinstaub zu tun. Elektroautos emittieren offensichtlich keinen Feinstaub. Darauf angesprochen, schrieb die Klner Polizeidirektion dem Mann zurck:
"Ihrem Bekannten wird somit wohl nicht vorgeworfen worden sein, in einer Umweltzone unerlaubterweise Feinstaub mit seinem Elektroauto ausgestoen zu haben, sondern die Umweltzone ohne die vorgeschriebene Kennzeichnung befahren zu haben. Dieses Verhalten ist bugeldbewehrt und kann verfolgt werden."
Da wei man, was man hat!

Update: Ein Leser kommentiert:

auch Elektrofahrzeuge produzieren Feinstaub durch Reifenabrieb und Bremsenabrieb.

Update: Auch in Mnchen gab es vor ein paar Jahren schon Umweltplaketten-Probleme fr Elektroautos.

Weil jetzt lauter Leute nach dem Ekel-Video fragen: Das war das hier. Da geht es aber nur am Rande um Ekel, daher hatte ich das nicht direkt verlinkt. Der Ekel-Forscher dort heit Jonathan Haidt und der hat auch dieses wirklich groartig argumentierte Video fr mehr intellektuelle Diversitt gemacht, das ich inhaltlich noch wichtiger finde als das Ekel-Video. Das sollte sich wirklich jeder mal in Ruhe angeguckt haben.

Ein Polizist in Rheinland-Pfalz hat wegen eines Knllchens ber 20 seinen Job verloren. Er hat das Verwarngeld von dem Autofahrer direkt vor Ort kassiert, eine falsche Quittung ausgestellt, und die Kohle eingesteckt.

Das Verwaltungsgericht attestiert dem Mann ein hohes Ma an Pflichtvergessenheit. Zwar sei der finanzielle Schaden gering, doch die Integritt und Vertrauenswrdigkeit des gesamten ffentlichen Dienstes werde durch solche Aktionen nachhaltig geschdigt. Hinzu kam noch, dass der Beamte schon frher negativ aufgefallen war. Unter anderem hatte er unberechtigt Daten aus den Polizeidatenbanken abgerufen.
Bei allem rger ber sich gegenseitig deckende Prgelcops: Auch den Fall gibt es, dass jemand im Dienst fr sein Vergehen bestraft wird.

Flaky Sen Jeff Flake Calls Trump Stalin, 1983 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Good morning, Im still reporting on: Flaky Sen Jeff Flake Calls Trump Stalin, 1983 Synopsis: Outgoing Senator Flaky Jeff Flake lived up to his name today in spades.

[insert Hillary why didnt I win by 50 points] [insert Flake, Stalin.] The difference, Sen. Flake, is that Stalin was a ruthless dictator who killed aver 100 million of his own people.

FBI Loses ALL Credibility=> Is Now Investigating Whether Russians Gave Money to NRA to Help Trump "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

The FBI has lost all credibility.

The Mueller witch hunt is now focusing on the NRA and whether Russia gave them money to support Donald Trump during the 2016 election.

Muellers team leaked this new angle to the liberal media today.

After more than a year of spying on Donald Trump, his campaign, his administration, his Transition team, the FBI has found NO EVIDENCE of Russia collusion.

But they know the left HATES the NRA and Trump and so they leaked this crap to whip up American left.

McClatchy reported:

The FBI is investigating whether a top Russian banker with ties to the Kremlin illegally funneled money to the National Rifle Association to help Donald Trump win the presidency, two sources familiar with the matter have told McClatchy.

FBI counterintelligence investigators have focused on the activities of Alexander Torshin, the deputy governor of Russias central bank who is known for his close relationships with both Russian President Vladimir Putin and the NRA, the sources said.

It is illegal to use foreign money to influence federal elections.

Its unclear how long the Torshin inquiry has been ongoing, but the news comes as Justice Department Special Counsel Robert Muellers sweeping investigation of Russian meddling in the 2016 election, including whether the Kremlin colluded with Trumps campaign, has been heating up.

All of the sources spoke on condition of anonymity because Muellers investigation is confidential and mostly involves classified information.

A spokesman for Muellers office declined comment.

Disclosure of the Torshin investigation signals a new dimension in the 18-month-old FBI probe of Russias interference. McClatchy reported a year ago that a multi-agency U.S. law enforcement and counterintelligence investigation into Russias intervention, begun...

Efecto Trump: un ao errtico "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

Por: Fabiola Mndez

Juan Daniel Garay Saldaa, especialista en estudios Mxico-Estados Unidos por la UNAM, seal que Trump ha gobernado con una poltica de retirada, desaciertos y aislacionista

A un par de das de cumplirse un ao de la toma de posesin de Donald Trump como presidente de Estados Unidos, durante todos esos 365 das no pas una semana sin que el mandatario se viera involucrado en alguna polmica o disputa.

Para Juan Daniel Garay Saldaa, maestro en Relaciones Internacionales y especialista en estudios Mxico-Estados Unidos por la UNAM, Trump gobern con una poltica de retirada, desaciertos y aislacionista que no engrandece a Estados Unidos y cede posiciones a China y Rusia.

Garay Saldaa refiri que Donald Trump se ha salido de lo polticamente correcto, sus estrategias polticas y diplomacia las conocemos a travs del twitter.

El presidente republicano con menor aprobacin en la historia de Estados Unidos sali del Acuerdo de Pars contra el Cambio Climtico, del Acuerdo Transpacfico, de la UNESCO por apoyar a su aliado Israel; amenaz con finalizar el acuerdo con Irn y con Cuba, acabo con negociaciones que se haban logrado en administraciones pasadas.

Su forma de gobierno ha estado llena de desaciertos en la poltica interna, su gabinete ha sido inestable, pelea con sectores de la sociedad, con la prensa y arremete contra su propio ejrcito.

Asimismo, muestra abiertamente actitudes racistas y xenfobas al exterior e interior de su pas para lograr la superioridad de los americanos, de desprecio hacia otras razas: la comunidad latina, musulmana, afroamericana, que fue el discurso que manej en campaa.

El tambin docente de la Facultad de Estudios Superiores Aragn apunt que en trminos de poltica exterior la calificara como errnea, fallida, en donde la relacin se ha tensado con los aliados y ha empeorado con los que no lo son, lo que ha vuelto al mundo inseguro.

Copyright, The First Wave of Internet Censorship "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

We're taking part in Copyright Week, a series of actions and discussions supporting key principles that should guide copyright policy. Every day this week, various groups are taking on different elements of copyright law and policy, and addressing what's at stake, and what we need to do to make sure that copyright promotes creativity and innovation.

When someone wants to remove speech from the Internet, the Digital Millennium Copyright Acts (DMCA) notice and takedown process can provide the quickest path. This has made copyright law a tempting tool for unscrupulous censors. As content companies push for even more control over what gets posted online, its important to remember that any tool used to police copyright will quickly be abused, then adapted, to censor speech more widely.
Weve seen abusive DMCA takedown notices from a would-be Senate candidate, small businesses, and Ecuadors President. Weve also seen robots-run-amok and sending takedowns for public domain material and white noise. One disturbing trend involves businesses targeting bad reviews. The business, or a shadowy reputation management company acting on its behalf, copies the bad review and publishes it elsewhere on the Internet. The business then sends a DMCA takedown notice alleging infringement of the copied, and falsely backdated, review.

Other DMCA takedowns have targeted speech for its political or otherwise offensive content. Although we did not agree with the videos message, EFF criticized a takedown directed at a video that briefly featured FCC chairman Ajit Pai doing the Harlem Shake. We had similar concerns about a game company that used the DMCA to take down a game stream after a certain YouTube personality uttered a...

Nuclear-capable B-52 bombers join B-2s, B-1Bs on Guam amid tensions with North Korea "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Jesse Johnson, January 16, 2018

From Japan Times

 The U.S. Air Force announced Tuesday that it has deployed six of its powerful B-52 strategic bombers to Guam amid tensions with nuclear-armed North Korea.

The six planes, accompanied by 300 airmen, join three of the air forces B-2 stealth bombers that were also recently dispatched to the U.S. island territory, home to Andersen Air Force Base, a key American outpost in the Pacific.

The base is also currently hosting several B-1B heavy bombers. While both the B-52 and B-2 are capable of carrying nuclear payloads, the B-1B has been modified to carry conventional ordinance only.

The deployment, conducted in support of U.S. Pacific Commands (PACOM) Continuous Bomber Presence mission, according to a U.S. Pacific Air Forces statement, is likely to raise eyebrows in North Korea, which last year threatened to fire missiles near Guam.

The B-52s were last deployed to the region in July 2016, during which they conducted a variety of joint and bilateral training missions with the U.S. Navy, U.S. Marine Corps, Air Self-Defense Force, South Korean Air Force and Royal Australian Air Force.

The move, widely seen as a show of American military muscle, was likely intended to reassure Asian allies nervous amid the North Korean nuclear crisis.

The B-52Hs return to the Pacific will provide U.S. PACOM and its regional allies and partners with a credible, strategic power projection platform, while bringing years of repeated operational experience, the U.S. Pacific Air Forces said in its statement.

This forward deployed presence demonstrates the U.S. continued commitment to allies and partners in the Indo-Pacific region, it added.

It was unclear how long the base, some 3,400 km from North Korea, would play host to all three bombers.

Overflights of the Korean Peninsula by heavy bombers such as the B-52, B-2 and B-1B have incensed Pyongyang. The North sees the flights by what it calls the air pirates of Guam...

Washington Must Stop Spending Tax Dollars to Fund Regime Change Wars Tulsi Gabbard "IndyWatch Feed World"

Tulsi Gabbard

In a shot across the bows of the US regime change hawks, the congresswoman from Hawaii has implored her fellow legislators to vote to end foreign entanglements. Few, however, seem willing to heed the call.

Gabbard, who served a 12-month tour in Iraq as a field medic, called on her fellow lawmakers to rally behind the Stop Arming Terrorists Act, which she submitted to Congress early last year.

The practice of spending taxpayer dollars to fund counterproductive regime change wars must end, she tweeted. It is long overdue we pass the Stop Arming Terrorists Act to prevent terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda or state sponsors like Saudi Arabia from receiving cash, weapons, or intelligence.

Her Stop Arming Terrorists Act, or HR 608, states that it would prohibit the use of United States Government funds to provide assistance to Al-Qaeda, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS), their supporters and others.

Every American would be surprised to know that for years our government has been providing both direct and indirect support to these armed militant groups, who are working directly with or under the command of terrorist groups like Al-Qaeda and ISIS, all in their effort and fight to overthrow the Syrian government, Gabbard told RT in March of last year.

It appears, however, that the idea of American taxpayers spending less on foreign entanglements is not receiving much support in the Congress as Gabbard has not enjoyed much success in rallying her colleagues to the cause.

In the House of Representatives, just 14 lawmakers have signed up as co-sponsors of the bill. Meanwhile, in the Senate...

London residents huge bill for corporate flammable cladding "IndyWatch Feed World"

This video from England says about itself:

Terrified residents hit with 2MILLION bill to replace cladding after Grenfell Tower

17 January 2018

People living in the Citiscape building in Croydon, south London, say they are terrified after receiving the sky-high demand for payment. Cladding at the building failed tests in the wake of the Grenfell tragedy five months ago.

But leaseholders have been told by site owner Proxima GR Properties that it is not liable for the costs. Instead, residents have been told to foot the bill, warned work will not start until they do and threatened that the costs for things like fire wardens and scaffolding could shoot up if there is any delay.

From daily The Independent in Britain today:

Pero tambin se debe a que la situacin -el arresto de una adolescente menor de edad sacada de su casa por la fuerza junto a su madre, Nariman, a altas horas de la noche-, expone los lmites morales que continuamente son quebrados por la ocupacin militar israel del territorio palestino.

La familia Tamimi es reconocida en la zona por su activismo en el Comit Popular de Nabi Salih que organiza a la comunidad. Cuando nos conocimos en octubre de 2016, compartiendo un caf en su hogar junto a su madre y su padre Bassem, Ahed llevaba con orgullo la carga puesta sobre su adolescencia.

Accused NYC Terrorist Willing to Plead Guilty to Live "IndyWatch Feed War"

Aftermath of the truck attack which killed eight in Manhattan on Tuesday October 31, 2017Aftermath of the truck attack which killed eight in Manhattan on Tuesday October 31, 2017 (Photo: DON EMMERT/AFP/Getty Images)

Sayfullo Saipov, accused of mowing down eight people with a rented van on the Hudson River bike path last Halloween in an Islamist terror attack, says he is willing to plead guilty in exchange for not receiving the death penalty.

Saipov, a 29-year old ISIS supporter, originally pleaded not guilty. He is currently being held without bail.

A guilty plea would mean that a lengthy trial would be avoided, saving both cost to the government and emotional turmoil to the victims.

It is deeply traumatic for these bereaved, seriously injured, or otherwise traumatized victims and their families to endure reliving Saipovs attack by recounting the details, and victims have already expressed to the government concern about delays in this process, prosecutors wrote.

U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions would have to sign off on the deal.

The trial itself could not be held any earlier than September 2019 according to Saipovs lawyers due to the large amount of evidence needed to build the defense. Quite a bit of the evidence is located overseas, they say.

The government requested a trial in April 2019 so that victims some from as far away as Argentina, Belgium, and Germany would be able to plan to travel to the U.S.

As far as accepting the request, prosecutors asked the defense to provide any information which would indicate there were mitigating circumstances to the crime. They originally gave the defense three months to gather any relevant information, but Saipovs lawyers have asked for six months to put together their argument.

Neural Networking: Robots Learning From Video "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Humans are very good at watching others and imitating what they do. Show someone a video of flipping a switch to turn on a CNC machine and after a single viewing theyll be able to do it themselves. But can a robot do the same?

Bear in mind that we want the demonstration video to be of a human arm and hand flipping the switch. When the robot does it, the camera that is its eye will be seeing its robot arm and gripper. So somehow itll have to know that its robot parts are equivalent to the human parts in the demonstration video. Oh, and the switch in the demonstration video may be a different model and make, and the CNC machine may be a different one, though well at least put the robot within reach of its switch.

Sound difficult?

Researchers from Google Brain and the University of Southern California have done it. In their paper describing how, they talk about a few different experiments but well focus on just one, getting a robot to imitate pouring a liquid from a container into a cup.

Cobalt Draws Reluctant Carmakers Back to a Wobbly DRC "IndyWatch Feed War"

 

Summary

Electric vehicles (EVs) are starting to revolutionize the car market in 2018, with BMW recently announcing new designs for electric versions of a dozen of its leading models. The BMW effort is being replicated across the car market by its competitors, as technological advances transform vehicle designs in the biggest shift to hit ground transport since the invention of the internal combustion engine. Even roads are changing with the gradual arrival of the energy generating and storing solar panel roads. These new EVs come with one drawback from carmakers perspectives however; they require a great deal of the rare mineral cobalt. A typical EV battery needs 21kg of cobalt to function properly, and as the mining sector has woken up to the prospect of fleets of EVs on our roads by the 2020s, the price of cobalt has spiked.

Early in January, business outlet Bloomberg reported the price had climbed from $600 to $1700 in 16 months. There is another problem for carmakers however: 60 percent of all known cobalt supplies come from the unstable and corrupt Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC). War is also brewing there after the DRCs autocratic leader President Joseph Kabila refused to step down at the end of his term in 2016. With fossil fuels falling out of favor due to their environmental impact, carmakers do not have the luxury of refusing to engage with the DRC, but how they avoid tying themselves too tightly to the decaying Kabila regime will be a crucial consideration. In the interim period between the end of fossil fuels monopoly of the motor industry and the rise of credible alternatives to cobalt (recycling dead batteries is often mentioned), the DRC will have a disproportionate amount of international leverage relative to its tiny and highly dysfunctional economy.

Tired of US Aid (Exploitation), Africa and Global South Look to China "IndyWatch Feed World"

BEIJING There has been a growing focus on the economic development underway in Africa. There is a reason behind this seemingly new interest of Western powers in events happening in Africa, and the reason is simple: China is a new power dominating business on the continent and has clearly caught the Wests attention.

China now has partner nations spanning the entire continent from Mauritania to South Africa, in a growing number of relationships that challenge the perceived hegemony of the triumvirate of Western capital, military, and NGO operations. This is making the U.S. nervous, as more African nations begin to see China as the better choice as an economic partner, due to Beijings fewer-strings-attached approach.

If one were looking for the best place to see the differences between these two approaches to investing in the global South, then look no further than the differences between how the U.S. and China help African countries develop infrastructure and distribute aid resources.

 

U.S. investment and aid: philanthropy is business

In order to better understand how U.S. aid and investment in infrastructure work in Africa, its best to look at the Western corporations that function as philanthropy contractors. One of these U.S.-based philanthropic giants that dominate aid and development in Africa is the well-known Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.

Russia's new deep sea torpedo carrying 100-megaton nuclear warhead renders USA's 'Prompt Global Strike' strategy useless "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia works to neutralise the USA's Prompt Global Strike strategy. The Pentagon has admitted that Russia has an unmanned submarine capable of carrying a powerful nuclear munition. To destroy an enemy in 48 hours, the United States pays first priority to high-precision weapons - hypersonic shells fired from surface vessels. In addition, the strategy involves the use of the nuclear triad shooting non-nuclear projectiles. However, before anything can be made, aircraft will have to take off and gain altitude. There are effective anti-aircraft and air defence complexes against ICBMs, whereas submarines appear to be most invulnerable. A recent report from the Pentagon, published on January 14, says that Russia works to develop its undersea fleet. Advantages of the submarine fleet Submarines can strike targets when approaching enemy's sea borders, and one does not have to maintain costly aircraft carriers and military bases for the purpose. Medium-range sea-based missiles are exempt from the INF Treaty. The launch of Caliber cruise missiles from the water area of the Caspian Sea on terrorists in Syria showed the effectiveness of such weapons to the whole world. To crown it all, Americans and Europeans periodically detect Russian submarines off their coasts, but they are unable to track them.

Trump move to pressure Palestinian leadership will take away food and education from vulnerable refugees "IndyWatch Feed War"

In a sign that the United States is ratcheting up pressure on Palestinian leadership, the Trump administration sent notice to UNRWA that it is withholding over half of this years annual commitment, paying $60 million and freezing another $65 million. The move indicates the U.S. is leveraging its hefty payments to the United Nations Refugee Works Agency (UNRWA) to pressure Palestinian officials into acquiescing to its vision for peace between the Israelis and Palestinians.

The reactions from Palestinian leaders have been serious, reflecting a diplomatic crisis point that began in December after President Donald Trump recognized Jerusalem as Israels capital.

Childrens access to basic humanitarian services is not a bargaining chip but a U.S. and international obligation, Palestinian Ambassador to the U.S. Husam Zomlot (who is a Palestinian refugee from Al-Shabura camp in southern Gaza) said in a statement released today from Washington DC.

[T]aking away food and education from vulnerable refugees does not bring a lasting and comprehensive peace, Zomlot added, noting Trumps decision lined up with statements made two weeks ago from Israels Prime Minister who called to shut down UNRWA.

[H]eeding Israeli Prime Minister Netanyahus zero sum game to take Jerusalem off the table and now attempting to dismantle UNRWA, thinking that it would relinquish the rights of Palestinian refugees is a fallacy, he said.

Similarly, the Palestinian leadership in Ramallah also laid blame beyond Trump on Israel.

The U.S. Administration seems to be following Netanyahus instructions to gradually dismantle the one agency that was established by the international community to protect the rights of the Palestinian refugees and provide them with essential services, the PLO said in a statement.

This administration is thereby targeting the most vulnerable segment of the Palestinian people and depriving the refugees of the right to education, health, shelter and a dignified life, the statement continued.

Neither Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas or Israels Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu have made comments since the funding cut was announced. While Abbas was in Cairo today for a summit on Jerusalem with Arab League officials, the Secretary-General, Ahmed Aboul-Gheit, said the U.S.s decision does not come apart from recognition of Jerusalem as Israels capital and [Israeli] settlement building, reported Anadolu Agency.

Debunking Russia Insider editor Charles Bausman's view of Jewish origins of Russian history's ills "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia Insider's editor-in-chief railed against the supposed Jewish origin of the world's ills, but totally fails to understand Russia's history or its people Going After Jews Instead of Neo-Liberals Charles Bausman, the editor-in-chief of Russia Insider, has chosen a path well-trodden: he decided to woo his audience by discovering the "Jewish origin" of today's wars and tensions. Nothing could be a greater service to the globalist neoliberals and neoconservatives, who try to present the alternative voices (and in the first place the alternative voices from Russia) as a chorus of anti-Semites, conspiracy theorists and Putin's pals. The detractors of RT and Sputnik in the United States and the EU may quickly forget that RT's Paula Slier made award-winning documentaries on the horrors of Holocaust, which did not prevent Paula from reporting on the horrors of Israel's bombardment of Palestinian areas. But the detractors of RT and Sputnik will remember Mr. Bausman's recent opus headlined "It's Time to Drop the Jew Taboo." They will remember it and cite it as an example of "Putin's man going fascist," quickly spreading its ill fame to all the media outlets which Mr. Bausman happened to visit. Such reactions from the representatives of the Western mainstream media are already coming. Judging from the text of his article, Mr. Bausman was fully aware of this kind of reaction before starting to pen out his feelings about Jews, but nevertheless proceeded with its publication.

From CivilBeat

When Esme Yokooji saw the alert Saturday that a missile was heading to Hawaii complete with huge capital letters saying THIS IS NOT A DRILL she put her dog inside the house, locked the doors and grabbed her 9-year-old sister.

Yokooji, 19, held her little sister in a bathtub in their Kailua home and tried to be strong. For a few excruciating minutes, she thought they were going to die. It wasnt until her mother came home that they realized it was a false alarm.

The mistake caused widespread panic, rocked Hawaiis tourism industry and raised questions about Gov. David Iges leadership and re-election chances. But for some like Yokooji, it was a call to action.

After her fear faded, she grew angry that Hawaii was even a target to begin with, that we were put in that situation when we are an innocent group of people.

IMF Is Choking Tunisia. No Wonder People Are Protesting "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Tunisia has been facing protests across the country at price and tax rises since 3 January the anniversary of the bread riots which occurred in 1984 under the Habib Bourguiba regime. As with the current unrest, that uprising was triggered by an intervention into the countrys affairs by international financial institutions, and the subsequent shock to the livelihoods of Tunisians specifically, an increase in bread and grain prices following the adoption of an IMF plan. It is impossible to understand these latest protests without understanding the role of international financial institutions, especially the IMF, in imposing austerity on Tunisia since the popular uprising of January 2011. In the months after the revolution, western governments and institutions were looking for a way to prevent countries from questioning the neoliberal model.

One of the more useful tools for reverse engineering hardware is a Bus Pirate.

However, it does not come with any sort of cable or connector. You can use DuPont connectors, if your device has headers soldered to it. However, some people find it easier to get a Bus Pirate Cable, which has several advantages:

  • The wires are color-coded, making it easier to keep track of the wires.
  • Bus Pirate connectors have a plug that fits the Bus Pirate exactly. This makes mistakes less likely.
  • Some cables have labels on the wires.
  • Some cables have test probes attached to the wires, allowing you to connect to devices that dont have headers.
  • If you have more than one cable, you can switch between devices under test easily and quickly.
  • Bus Pirate connectors are compatible with other devices, such as the JTagulator which can support 3 Bus Pirate cables at once. So the cables are multi-purpose.

However, there are some things you should know before you select a cable. They are not all the same.

Stephen Paddocks brother Eric is furious at the coroners decision to cremate, not deliver, alleged shooters body "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The coroner seems to think that there has to be some chain of custody because of the criminal investigation

LAS VEGAS (INTELLIHUB) It appears that Clark County Coroner John Fudenberg may be corrupt and that authorities may be trying to hide something about the 1 October massacre by burning the evidence.

This all comes after Eric Paddock, the brother of the alleged shooter Stephen Paddock, told reporters that he was furious over the coroners decision to cremate Stephen Paddocks body and not ship it to him as promised.

The coroner seems to think that there has to be some chain of custody because of the criminal investigation, Paddock said. The coroner originally told me that he had constructed a plan to have the FBI deliver the remains and this was not the truth.

Paddock said that he will have to travel to Vegas to pick up the remains.

Youtuber JerseySteve chimes in:

Maybe official didnt want Eric to find out that the dead guy wasnt actually his brother?

Photo evidence proves the dead guy in the leaked photos is not Stephen Paddock

Congress Votes To Move Forward With Surveillance Under Trump "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

A CRITICAL MASS of Senate Democrats voted with Republicans on Tuesday to shut down any further debate on a bill that strengthens the governments spying powers. The bill would renew a key surveillance authority for the National Security Agency until 2023 and consolidate the FBIs power to search Americans digital communications without a warrant. The motion, which passed 60-38, virtually guarantees that the final bill will pass likely later this week and quashes any opportunity to debate whether protections should be added. Eighteen Democrats including Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who had previously proposed an amendment to restrict the FBIs surveillance authority voted in support of the motion. They were joined by 41 Republicans and one independent, Angus King, giving the pro-surveillance bloc the supermajority needed to push the bill forward. Sens. John McCain, R-Ariz., and Dan Sullivan, R-Ala., did not vote.

An investigation has been launched after an access panel on the wing of a Boeing 747 used by Japanese Prime Minister Shinzo Abe fell off during flight.

Japans Air Self Defense Force (ASDF) confirmed the incident happened during a flight from Tokyo to Hokkaido, Thursday. The part, which is about the size of a laptop computer and provides access to an area connecting the engines to the right wing of the plane, has not yet been found.

There was no sign of it on the runways so its going to be very difficult to locate, a spokesman for the ASDF said in a statement, cited by Reuters. ANN News in Japan broadcast images of the plane and its missing part on Thursday.

Two jumbo jets carrying Abe and other government officials set off from Tokyo on Friday ahead of a six-day trip to Eastern Europe. The Japanese PM was reportedly not aboard the plane that lost its panel.

The lost panel follows similar incidents involving US-made aircraft in Okinawa, the southern island prefecture home to several US military bases, in recent weeks.

The paper from Chatham House, the Royal Institute of International Affairs, says while the potential impacts of cyberattacks on nuclear weapons systems are enormous, the issue has received scant attention.

It warns that the public could pay the ultimate price.

Nuclear weapons systems including the UKs Trident warheads were first developed when computers were in their infancy and little consideration was given to cyber vulnerabilities, the authors warn. There are now a number of vulnerabilities and pathways through which a malicious actor may infiltrate a nuclear weapons system without a states knowledge.

Widespread reliance on digital systems in the military means communications between commanders, positioning data, and the supply and logistics chain could all be vulnerable.

Nuclear weapons are at threat from hostile states, criminal groups and terrorist organizations, the report says. Cyber vulnerabilities within nuclear weapons systems and structures present a whole set of dangers and risks.

At best, cyber insecurity in nuclear weapons systems is likely to undermine trust and confidence in military capabilities and in the nuclear weapons infrastructure. At worst, cyberattacks could lead to deliberate misinformation and the inadvertent launch of nuclear weapons.

After all, it is the public that will pay the ultimate price for complacency regarding cybersecurity of nuclear we...

Lifeline Program Changes Could Cut Low-Cost Internet For Thousands In Ohio "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- A federal program that helps low-income people afford internet service in their homes is in the Federal Communications Commission's crosshairs. Under changes the FCC recently proposed, fewer people may receive subsidized broadband service under the Lifeline program. Those left out will struggle to do online tasks such as filling out a job application, or paying bills online. About 12.5 million low-income people across the country, and thousands in Ohio, could be affected. There are even health implications, since so much of today's medicine relies on patients having the ability to make appointments, refill prescriptions and view test results online. "There are a lot of unknowns so far," said Liz Lazar, director of programs and partnerships for DigitalC, a nonprofit organization that provides digital literacy and internet access to the under-served.

Hundreds still freezing on Paris streets "IndyWatch Feed World"

Hundreds are still stranded in Paris despite the French president having vowed to clear the streets of rough-sleeping migrants by the end of 2017. RT spoke to refugees in the camps, who are still hoping to get asylum in France.

When President Macron promised that the public would no longer see anyone on the streets by the end of 2017, following criticism of the way migrants were living in France, many people welcomed such a bold statement. Others believed it would come back to bite him and it has. As the first week of 2018 rolls in, thousands of migrants are still on the streets of France, still waiting for a shelter more permanent than a flimsy tent.

Rafi is one among hundreds of migrants who have camped for at least one night near Jaurs metro station in Paris during the past two years. Hes been in France for seven months. First, he headed to Calais in the hope he could reach the UK. After failing to cross the English Channel, however, he came to Paris, hoping that he would be given asylum.

I fled Afghanistan because of the Taliban, he tells me. Ive been here in Paris for a month and its cold, he says, as he shows me the number of layers hes wearing. Rafi takes me down to the side of the canal and shows me the tiny, pop-up, two-man tent he currently calls home. He sleeps there with two others for warmth. This is my life, he repeats over and over. When I ask if its the life he thought he would have, he pauses before bowing his head and quietly says No.

If Rafis story has been told once, its been told a thousand times or more by other migrants. The makeshift camp at Jaurs is full of men like him. They came to Europe for asylum, for jobs, for a better life, but many havent found it. I see men huddled around open fires, holding their hands to the flames in a bid to keep warm. Others are patiently waiting near the metro station. Its night, and they are hoping the food station that has become a nightly fixture will show up again. It does. A small table is set up and a group of volunteers dish out hot soup with a side of French stick. The men wolf down the meal, some remain standing. They are so hungry, they dont want to waste any time.

Putin says Russia knows who staged attacks on Syrian bases recently & its not Turkey "IndyWatch Feed World"

Recent attacks on Russias Khmeimim Airbase in Syria were a provocation aimed at undermining the countrys relations with its partners Turkey and Iran and the peaceful settlement of the Syrian crisis, Vladimir Putin said.

Those were provocations aimed at disrupting the earlier agreements, in the first place. Secondly, it was about our relations with our partners Turkey and Iran. It was also an attempt to destroy those relations, the Russian President said during a meeting with the editors-in-chief of Russian papers and news agencies in Moscow. We have a perfect understanding of that and will act in solidarity.

There were provocateurs there, but they were not Turks, Putin said, refuting earlier reports saying the attacks on the Russian airbase were carried out by Turkoman units backed by Ankara. We know who they are. We know whom and how much they paid for these provocations, Putin said, without naming the organizers of the attacks.

Russian military sites in Syria were targeted in two major attacks in the past two weeks, one on New Years Eve and another on January 6. The first assault, reportedly carried out by an infiltration squad armed with mortars, resulted in two Russian servicemen being killed and damage to warplanes at Khmeimim Airbase. The second involved 13 drones armed with bomblets, which were all either shot down or forced to land via means of electronic warfare by Russian forces.

According to the head of state, the attacks on Khmeimim Airbase were well-prepared.

Bullion dealer Sharps Pixley said physical gold sales increased fivefold on Wednesday, as people were willing to sell digital gold and buy the real thing.

Yesterday was a hell of a crazy day. Emails and phones did not stand still with customers asking how they could turn their crypto into gold, Director Daniel Marburger told Bloomberg.

Investors having 1,000 bitcoins and more are willing to dump them and buy physical metal, a gold trader told the media.

Bitcoin is a bit of a lobster pot its easy to get in, but hard to get out. Gold also offers investors 4,000 years of history as a store of value, and thats looking quite appealing right now, he said.

While bitcoin and the US dollar fell, gold rallied 7.5 percent in December to a four-month high.

Bitcoin has appreciated 2 percent on Thursday, trading at above $11,000 per token. On the previous trading session, it dropped to as low as $9,400, marking more than a 50 percent loss in just a month.

With China preparing to expand the crackdown on cryptocurrencies, many investors are worried it could mean the end of the digital money rally or even worse.

Investors are saying bitcoin has similar advantages to gold, as it is also decentralized unlike fiat currencies. However, while you can hold gold in your hands, cryptocurrencies are held either on servers or hard drives.

Drone attack on Russia's bases in Syria was likely CIA false flag "IndyWatch Feed World"

The audacious multiple-drone attack on Russia's military bases in Syria is increasingly looking like a false flag carried out by the American Central Intelligence Agency. Sophisticated technology and a Ukrainian connection indicate that the swarm attack with 13 unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) was not the work solely of Syrian anti-government militants. What's more the Russian government appears to have the incriminating evidence on who sanctioned the drone attacks against the Russian air base at Hmeimim and its naval port at Tartus on January 6. The weapons failed to execute their deadly mission. Of the 13 drones used, seven were shot down by Russian Pantsir S-1 air defenses and six were safely landed by Russian electronic jamming technology. Those captured intact UAVs will have provided forensic information about what agency authored the plot.

Running with the Shadows of the Right "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

NOTE: This article was originally published at Right On on July 29, 2016. Im re-posting it here as the site is now defunct.

Hillary Clinton accepted the Democratic nomination for president Thursday night while protesters howled outside the DNCs security fence. Unfortunately, I couldnt watch much of it, as antifas spotted, stalked and threatened me for several blocks.

As Im writing this, the first woman to ever be nominated by a major party as a presidential candidate is giving her phony, shrill, herpes-laced acceptance speech. Turns out that a lady can really go places when she shacks up with a former president. Outside the Democratic National Convention, angry Bernie Sanders supporters and a horde of other unsavory groups are gnashing their teeth, chanting every cliched slogan in the book while police stand ready for crowd control.

My own involvement in this story is limited: my attempt to film the protests at FDR Park ended almost immediately after it began, when antifas spotted and stalked me for several blocks. I had to ask cops to intervene twice to get them to back off. The best part was that I captured it all on video: you can see it here.

Hands off Tim Hortons Workers wages and benefits! "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Happy New Year! 2018 began with Ontarios minimum wage being raised to $14, which immediately increased wages for 1.5 million workers. The new year also began with some predictable but still shocking behavior by some businesses seeking to undermine the spirit of new labour laws meant to improve working conditions.

Tim Hortons stands out as a key offender with their actions against the new $14 minimum wage. News quickly emerged that the heirs of the original Tim Hortons founders cut benefits and paid breaks at their Cobourg franchises. Then news spread on social media about other franchises bullying workers by taking away tips, cutting hours and meal allowances. Workers have reported being made to sign gag orders preventing them from speaking out publicly about their worsening work conditions. Customers have been outraged by the actions of Tim Hortons and this has become an important struggle in the fight for fairness. To voice your own outrage, sign this petition in support of Tim Hortons workers.

Europe, China, Japan, India, the Republic of Korea, the Russian Federation and the US are working together to bring the energy of the Sun to earth. Fusion power can be the game changer that will revolutionise the energy mix by cutting down our dependence on fossil fuels.

ITER will prove the potential of this unlimited source of sustainable energy. To find out more about ITER and the merits of fusion power view the clip.

What Is ITER?

ITER (The Way in Latin) is one of the most ambitious energy projects in the world today.In southern France, 35 nations are collaborating to build the worlds largest tokamak, a magnetic fusion device that has been designed to prove the feasibility of fusion as a large-scale and carbon-free source of energy based on the same principle that powers our Sun and stars.The experimental campaign that will be carried out at ITER is crucial to advancing fusion science and preparing the way for the fusion power plants of tomorrow.ITER will be the first fusion device to produce net energy. ITER will be the first fusion device to maintain fusion for long periods of time. And ITER will be the first fusion device to test the integrated technologies, materials, and physics regimes necessary for the commercial production of fusion-based electricity.Thousands of engineers and scientists have contributed to the design of ITER since the idea for an international joint experiment in fusion was first launched in 1985. The ITER MembersChina, the European Union, India, Japan, Korea, Russia and the United Statesare now engaged in a 35-year collaboration to build and operate the ITER experimental device, and together bring fusion to the point where a demonstration fusion reactor can be designed.We invite you to explore the ITER website for more information on the science of ITER, the ITER international collaboration and the large-scale building project that is underway in Saint Paul-lez-Durance, southern France.

CORPORATIONS ARE PEOPLE, 2018 EDITION "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Portions of an interview with EPA chief Scott Pruitt appeared on the CBS Evening News last night. Pruitt, of course, sought to justify his pro-industry bias.

Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt told CBS News that a partnership with "industry" is necessary in order for the agency to protect the environment.

"This paradigm that says we have to choose industry over the environment or the environment over industry is the old way of thinking," Pruitt told CBS News' chief White House correspondent Major Garrett in an interview Wednesday.

"Now that serves political ends but it doesn't serve the environment because I will tell you this: to achieve what we want to achieve in environmental protection, environmental stewardship, we need the partnership of industry," he added.
Watch the segment, or at least watch it up through Pruitt's first statement.



So we spent the past year trying to achieve regulatory certainty, regulatory clarity, to make sure that people knew what was expected of them so they could invest, achieve good outcomes for the environment.
Just from looking at his career, we know Pruitt is lying about his concern for the environment. But notice his use of the word "people." When Pruitt says "people," he means "corporations." He means "industry executives." He's in a job in which he's supposed to serve all Americans, but his identification with industry is so absolute that, in his mind, the word "people" doesn't refer to the overall populace. It refers only to corporations and their officers.

At the end of the clip he uses the word "people" again, also in the course of feigning concern for the environment:
And I will tell you, if we have companies, industries, citizens, who violate the law, we're going to prosecute them. But we should not start from the premise that all people are that way, or all industry is that way.
Again who are the "people"? For Pruitt, "all people are that way" is equivalent to "all industry is that way."

Mitt Romney said, "Corporations are people." Scott Pruitt throws in a reference to "citizens" in that last soundbite. But there's no reason to believe that he thinks are people are people. We're certainly not the people for his purposes.

IN TEXAS I HEARD THAT LAST YEAR SOMETHING LIKE 6,000 CASES WERE REPORTED, BUT THIS YEAR OVER 11,000 WERE INFECTED. VERY STRANGE INDEED. THESE NUMBERS HAVE NOT BEEN SEEN SINCE EARLY 1900S.

IN OTHER NEWS, ALL IS MOVING VERY QUICKLY TO CONCLUSION FOR US AND WE HAVE RECEIVED INFORMATION THAT OUR FUNDINGS HAVE BEGUN BUT THE WIRES HAVE NOT MADE IT OUT UNTIL EITHER TOMORROW OR FRIDAY. DELAYS WERE CAUSED BY SOME LEGAL ISSUES (DRUMMED UP?) BUT THEY WERE RESOLVED TODAY IT WAS REPORTED.

IF SUCH IS THE CASE, AND I WILL FIND OUT DETAILS TOMORROW, THIS SIMPLY MEANS WE WILL INDEED RECEIVE FUNDS THIS WEEK AND WE WILL BEGIN WORK.

I HAVE HEARD THAT THE RV TTMS ARE DELAYED A BIT FOR MANY UNTIL NEXT WEEK, BUT NO REASON WAS GIVEN AS THEY WERE PRETTY CLOSE MOUTHED ON THAT ONE. REGARDLESS, IT MAKES LITTLE DIFFERENCE TO US AS WE DO NOT DEPEND ON THIS SOURCE OF FUNDS FOR OUR OPERATIONS. I AM VERY HAPPY THAT THIS IS SO, AND I KNOW NOW THAT WE WILL BE HARD AT WORK IN THE NEXT DAYS GETTING OUR INFRASTRUCTURE IN PLACE READY FOR THE PROJECTS.

I ALSO HEARD MUCH ABOUT THIS JOSEF(?) FELLOW FROM HUMAN ANGELS AND THAT OTHERS HAVE WRITTEN SOME NASTY STUFF ABOUT HIM.

Paris Metro drivers have to skip stations as crack dealers take over platforms says Union "IndyWatch Feed World"

The levels of drug-related crime in parts of the Paris Metro have seemingly spiralled so out-of-control that train drivers are refusing to stop at certain stations.
.

The Unsa RATP union, which represents the Paris Metro and bus network, has sent a letter to Gerard Collomb, the French Minister of the Interior, as well as Anne Hidalgo, the mayor of Paris and Valerie Pecresse, the President of the Regional Council of le-de-France, saying that certain metro stations, particularly on lines 12 and 4 in the north-east, were being used by drug dealers as a base and as a result, drug-related crime and violence has been on the rise.

Marylands Big Money Politics- Hogan Shatters a Record "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

If Marylands Gubernatorial race can be compared to sports, yesterday, pitchers and catchers reported for Spring Training. We now have our first, real, tangible insight into the race for Governor: campaign finance disclosures. Sure, math and money may not be the sexiest topics, but, more than just a number on a page, the disclosures tell us about the relative health of campaigns going forward. If yesterdays disclosures are any indication, Governor Larry Hogan is off to a commanding lead, but that this will likely be one of the most expensive political cycles in Marylands history.

Full disclosure: Ive donated to Governor Hogan. You can find out more about his campaign here.

Hogan Sets a Record

Governor Larry Hogan posted a record-shattering (by our review of past campaign account numbers) eight million dollars cash-on-hand with Lieutenant Governor Boyd Rutherford pulling in a million in his account. That gives the Hogan re-election bid a net of right-around nine million dollars coming into election year.

For reference, we looked back at previous Gubernatorial races. Martin OMalley, the last Democrat to govern Maryland, looks to have had about five million dollars on-hand on his best fundraising day. Its important to note that we are using the cash-on-hand number in this article because, in our view, its the only one that matters at this stage. In January of a Federal Midterm election year, very few people are paying attention to politics. What this means is that no matter what youve spent already, most of that is just prologue to whats really needed going forward, especially to challengers: positive name identification.

So, how do Governor Hogans challengers line up?

Former NAACP Chairman and Bernie Sanders-endorsed Ben Jealous has $398k. Prince Georges County Executive and current frontrunning Democrat (according to extremely early polling) Rushern Baker has $631k. Baltimore County Executive Kevin Kamenetz has $2M. Lawyer Jim Shea has $1.3M. DC-native Krish Vignarajah has $272k. Author Alec Ross has $445k.

Rogue Venezuelan pilot killed in operation Government confirms "IndyWatch Feed World"

Hunted down as Security forces block access to a morgue in Caracas where the bodies of rogue pilot Oscar Perez and six other militants killed during a police assault are being kept on January 17, 2018

The video grab purportedly shows injured Venezuelan Oscar Perez in one of his final videos, on January 15, 2018.

Perez had been on the run since the Venezuelan government accused him of a terrorist attack and issued an Interpol alert demanding his arrest. Ha had occasionally appeared on social media, taunting the government from hiding.

Reports said on Wednesday that groups of soldiers, carrying anti-riot shields, had cordoned off a Caracas morgue where Perezs corpse was being kept.

Critics have claimed that Perez and his men had been killed in what seemed to be an extrajudicial execution, demanding the initiation of an investigation into their deaths.

The government, however, argued that police were attacked violently when they were negotiating the surrender of Perezs group, saying they also tried to detonate a vehicle loaded with explosives.

In December, Perez claimed responsibility for an assault on a military post near the capital, Caracas, in which a small amount of weapons were stolen.

Venezuela last year witnessed unrest over political disagreements between the government and opposition as well as over an economic crisis. Some 125 people from both the government and opposition camps were killed in the violence.

Democrats Are Putting 800,000 Illegal Immigrants Ahead Of Active Duty Military Members "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

Democrats are threatening a government shutdown which will affect active duty military members. Democrats care more about illegal immigrants than our soldiers.

The Daily Caller reports:

Dems Think 800,000 Illegal Immigrants Are Worth Forcing Active Military To Go Without Pay

Democrats are threatening to hold national security hostage, potentially costing the economy billions and forcing hundreds of thousands of federal government employees to go without pay in exchange for securing legal protections for 800,000 illegal immigrants.

Congress has three days to strike a deal to keep the government funded through October. If members fail to come to an agreement by Jan. 19, all non-essential government employees and active U.S. Military personnel will be working with out pay (including troops currently deployed). Funding for agencies like federal museums or national parks will also be cut off.

Congressional Democrats are apparently content with allowing military and law enforcement personnel to go without pay to secure protections and benefits for illegal immigrants and members of their extended families.

As the clock ticks closer to the Friday deadline, Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer and House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi arent backing away from their demands to tie a legislative solution to the Obama-era Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program to the must-pass spending bill.

The media is helping Democrats by being silent on this issue.

Donald Trump says Russia helping North Korea skirt sanctions; Pyongyang close to long-range missile "IndyWatch Feed War"

WASHINGTON (REUTERS)  US President Donald Trump said on Wednesday (Jan 17) that Russia is helping North Korea get supplies in violation of international sanctions and that Pyongyang is getting closer every day to being able to deliver a long-range missile to the United States.

Russia is not helping us at all with North Korea, Trump said during an Oval Office interview with Reuters.

What China is helping us with, Russia is denting. In other words, Russia is making up for some of what China is doing.

China and Russia both signed onto the latest rounds of United Nations Security Council sanctions against North Korea imposed last year. There was no immediate comment from the Russian embassy in Washington on Trumps remarks.

With North Korea persisting as the major global challenge facing Trump this year, the president cast doubt during the 53-minute interview on whether talks with North Korean leader Kim Jong Un would be useful. In the past he has not ruled out direct talks with Kim.

Id sit down, but Im not sure that sitting down will solve the problem, he said, noting that past negotiations with the North Koreans by his predecessors had failed to rein in North Koreas nuclear and missile programmes.

 No automatic alt text available.

Theyve talked for 25 years and theyve taken advantage of our presidents, of our previous presidents, he said.

He declined to comment when asked whether he had engaged in any communications at all with Kim, with whom he has exchanged public insults and threats, heightening tensions in the region.

Trump said he hoped the standoff with Pyongyang could be resolved in a peaceful way, but its very possible that it cant....

Since the beginning of 2016 The Association for Safer Drug Policies has become a strong voice in Norwegian drug policy, and together with the other organisations working for drug policy reform we have been able to shift the centreline of the Norwegian public debate and influence the programs of almost all major political parties, including the party of government. Even though we were certain  changes would come at some point, we didnt expect our Health Minister from the Conservative party to change his view on decriminalisation as fast as he did. It really takes courage to front new drug policies and to take a new stand in a heated debate like this, like he did.

The whole world is sick and tired of United States Foreign Policy "IndyWatch Feed World"

According to four-star General Wesley Clark, in a 1991 meeting with Paul Wolfowitz, then-under-secretary of defense for policy at the Department of Defense, Wolfowitz seemed a little dismayed because he believed the U.S. should have gotten rid of Saddam Hussein in Operation Desert Storm but failed to do so. Clark summarized what he says Wolfowitz said: "'But one thing we did learn. We learned that we can use our military in the region, in the Middle East, and the Soviets won't stop us. We've got about five or ten years to clean up those old Soviet client regimes, Syria, Iran, Iraq, before the next great superpower comes on to challenge us.'" [emphasis added] This was certainly the case in the years that followed, as the United States used the pretext of 9/11 to attack both Afghanistan and Iraq with little to no substantive resistance from the international community. This trend continued as the Obama administration heavily expanded its operations into Yemen, Somalia, Pakistan, and even the Philippines, to name a few, right up until the U.S. led a cohort of NATO countries to impose regime change in Libya in 2011. At the time, Russia withheld its veto power at the U.N. Security Council because it had received assurances that the coalition would not pursue regime change. After NATO forces began bombing Muammar Gaddafi's palaces directly, a furious Vladimir Putin questioned: "Who gave NATO the right to kill Gaddafi?"

Prisoners Suffer Gross Human Rights Violations. Now Theyre Standing & Speaking Up. "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The message goes on to detail the three main demands via examples such as price gouging prisoners on products like a case of soup that costs $17 in the Canteen as opposed to the roughly $4 it costs on the outside. As the writer points out, This is highway robbery without a gun. With regards to parole, Florida eliminated parole for non-capital felonies back in 1984 meaning that the death penalty cant be used in those cases. Instead, those serving life in prison have no hope for parole and those with near-life sentences have very little hope. Rehabilitation is a foregone conclusion. This also means that the gain time system for prison labor is essentially meaningless to these prisoners. Florida prisons offer whats known as gain time for prison labor. Prisoners work in exchange for time struck off their sentence. The problem here is three-fold.

Exposing psychiatry as a fraud from top to bottom "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Exposing psychiatry as a fraud from top to bottom

by Jon Rappoport

January 18, 2018

Promoting diabolically false science, psychiatry creates a gateway for defining many separate states of consciousness that dont exist at all. Theyre cheap myths, fairy tales. (The Underground, Jon Rappoport)

Regardless of what you think of Donald Trump, the deployment of psychiatrists to diagnose a person they oppose on political grounds is a tacticnot science.

In some cases, psychiatrists give favored individuals a soft landingWell, hes suffering from bipolar and he needs help straightening out his lifewhile in other cases these shrinks use their diagnoses to discredit and diminish public figureshis judgment is impaired, pay no attention to what hes saying, he needs treatment (toxic drugs).

Its the old USSR strategy, with a few cultural twists to fit the American landscape.

Its time to lay out the facts about psychiatry, to show how bankrupt this science really is.

Wherever you see organized psychiatry operating, you see it trying to expand its domain and its dominance. The Hippocratic Oath to do no harm? Are you kidding?

The first question to ask is: do these mental disorders have any scientific basis? There are now roughly 300 of them. They multiply like fruit flies.

An open secret has been bleeding out into public consciousness for the past ten years.

THERE ARE NO DEFINITIVE LABORATORY TESTS FOR ANY SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDER.

No blood tests, no urine tests, no saliva tests, no brain scans, no genetic assays.

And along with that:

ALL SO-CALLED MENTAL DISORDERS ARE CONCOCTED, NAMED, LABELED, DESCRIBED, AND CATEGORIZED by a committee of psychiatrists, from menus of human behaviors.

Their findings are published in periodically updated editions of The Diagnostic and Statistical Manual of Mental Disorders (DSM), printed by the American Psychiatric Association.

For years, even psychiatrists have been blowing the whistle on this hazy crazy process of research.

Of course, pharmaceutical companies, who manufacture highly toxic drugs to treat every one of these disorders, are leading the charge to invent more and more mental-health categories, so they can sell more drugs and make more money.

Did the World Just Avoid Two False Flag Attempts Designed to Start World War III? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The Trump phenomenon is picking up steam, not just in America, but internationally. Worldwide people are rejecting the globalists. The reason for this phenomenon is because freedom and the subsequent development of an internal locus of control is an innate trait.

In a stunning example of this rejection of globalism is exemplified by North and South Korea. Here are two nations, with a common heritage, on the verge of nuclear war with each other, and they have for the time being, rejected the globalist move towards World War III.  The two Koreas are going to march together in the Olympics. The two Koreas are going to form on joint olympic hockey team. This is significant beyond belief. In the chaos leading up to WW III, the people and the leadership of the two countries are telling the globalists where to go and what to do when they get they get there. This announcement is a stunning rebuke of globalist goals. It further demonstrates that war is an unnatural act. The Hopis have a saying that no tree is so foolish to have branches so stupid to attack themselves. We are the only species on the planet that engages in this insane behavior we call war. The desire for war, especially a war that could wipe out the bulk of humanity is so insane that both North Korea and South Korea have rejected the move. I have one caveat for the wonderful Korean people, beware of false flags at the Olympics because one does not say no to the globalists with impunity. 

Mounting a Defense Against Humanitys Right to Self-Determination

In many ways, Trumps election was a kind of Magna Carta and a Declaration of Independence all in one fell swoop and now the globalists are trying to find ways to fight back and their efforts are falling on deaf ears. Here in Arizona, Senator Jeff Flake(y), has announced that he is not running for re-election. Why? Because Flake cannot defeat any number of challengers to his seat (eg Sheriff Joe Arpaio and Congresswoman Sinema). Why is Flake so unpopular in Arizona? The answer is painfullly obvio...

The U.S. Supreme Court could soon be delivering another jolt to Indian Country, as another treaty rights case is looming on the horizon. Clayvin Herrera, a citizen of the Crow Tribe, was prosecuted by Wyoming for a hunt that took place in the Bighorn Mountains. He argues that the state lacked jurisdiction because the area, despite being off the reservation, is covered by an 1868 treaty with the federal government. "This case presents an important question of federal law that has divided the lower courts and affects the livelihoods of thousands of Native Americans," Herrera's attorney wrote in petition to the Supreme Court last October. The petition in Herrera v. Wyoming has indeed attracted significant attention.

Who's Turning Against Trump? Women "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

From the Atlantic's account of a big new poll from SurveyMonkey:

Layering in gender and age underscores voters retreat. Trump in 2016 narrowly won younger whites. But he now faces crushing disapproval ratings ranging from 62 percent to 76 percent among three big groups of white Millennials: women with and without a college degree, and men with a degree. Even among white Millennial men without a degree, his most natural supporters, Trump only scores a 49-49 split.

Trumps support rapidly rises among blue-collar white men older than 35 and spikes past two-thirds for those above 50. But his position has deteriorated among white women without a college degree. Last year he carried 61 percent of them. But in the new SurveyMonkey average, they split evenly, with 49 percent approval and 49 percent disapproval. His approval rating among non-college-educated white women never rises above 54 percent in any age group, even those older than 50. From February through December, Trumps approval rating fell more with middle-aged blue-collar white women than any other group.
Among minority men, Trump's position is essentially unchanged or has even improved slightly; I guess nothing he has said has surprised them. But minority women hate him:
Among African Americans and Hispanics, reactions to Trump depend more on gender than age or education. In every age group, and at every level of education, about twice as many African American men as women gave Trump positive marks. In all, 23 percent of black men approved of Trumps performance versus 11 percent of black women. The outlier here isnt [black] men its [black] women, where you have near-universal disapproval of Trump, said Cornell Belcher, a Democratic pollster who studies African American voters. Still, black men are one of the few groups for which Trumps 2017 average approval rating significantly exceeds his 2016 vote share.
When it comes to race, I think Trump represents a defensive spasm from the past, which is slowly disappearing. That anti-racist protesters always hugely outnumber the racists in any recent confrontation shows me that things will continue to move in the same direction. The nation's dramatic shift over the Civil War and its commemoration seems to me an important sign; heck, as Youtube recently reminded me, in my lifetime radical leftist Joan Baez recorded "The Night they Drove Old Dixie Down."

I think developments in the war of the sexes are potentially more explosive. I will bet now that the 2020 election produces the biggest gender gap in US voting history; that is certainly what the polls predict. Trump's election seems to have crystallized feminist discontent with men of a certain sort, and you see th...

When the US Pledged Not to Intervene in Irans Internal Affairs "IndyWatch Feed World"

This week marks the 37th anniversary of a pledge made by the United States in 1981:

The United States pledges that it is and from now on will be the policy of the United States not to intervene, directly or indirectly, politically or militarily, in Irans internal affairs.

This week also marks 37 continuous years of the United States failing to uphold its pledge: the 1981 Algiers Accords.

Just how many people have heard of the 1981 Algiers Accords, a bilateral treaty signed on January 19, 1981 between the United States of America and the Islamic Republic of Iran? Chances are, not many.   Just as chances are that not many are fully aware of what actually led to the signing of this treaty.

Following the success of the 1979 Iranian Revolution that overthrew the Shah, Americas strongman in Iran, plans were made to topple the new government in Tehran.   In 1980, under the Carter administration, the United States began clandestine radio broadcasts into Iran from Egypt. The broadcasts called for Khomeinis overthrow and urged support for Shahpur Bakhtiar[i], the last prime minister under the Shah.  Other plans included the failed Nojeh coup plot as well as plans for a possible American invasion of Iran using Turkish bases[ii].

The new Revolutionary government in Iran, with a look to the past and the 1953 British-CIA coup dtat that overthrew the Mossadegh government and reinstalled the Shah, had good reason to believe that the United States was planning to abort the revolution in its nascent stages.  Fearful, enthusiastic students took over the U.S. embassy in Tehran and took the diplomats as hostages in order to prevent such plans from fruition.

These events led to the negotiation and conclusion the Algiers Accords, point 1 of which was the pledge by the United States not to intervene in Irans internal affairs in any way. The Algiers Accords brought about the release of the American hostages and established the IranU.S. Claims Tribunal (Tribunal) at The Hague, the Netherlands.   The Tribunal...

A software developer has discovered a security vulnerability in Apples operating systems (iOS and macOS) that is capable of freezing or crashing your iPhone, Mac or iPad.

Chicago-based software developer Abraham Masri, who originally discovered the bug and posted his findings to GitHub on Tuesday afternoon, warned people not to use it for bad stuff. However, the link started being shared quickly on social media.

The malicious link dubbed as chaiOS text bomb is sent through Apples Message app, which once clicked on redirects the Messages app to a page stored on GitHub, a hosting service for computer code, and then tries to open a huge list of text, which ultimately overloads iOS or macOS and crashes the iPhone, Mac or iPad. It makes the Message app unusable and also deletes all the messages on the device.

The users are reporting effects such as freezing, crashes, restarts and resprings, a process which takes about 10 seconds and returns you to the Lock Screen.

Masri told BuzzFeed News that he discovered the bug while fuzzing with the operating system. In other words, he was trying to enter random characters into its internal code of the operating system so that he could break it.

According to BuzzFeed News, Twitter user @aaronp613, who tested the bug, said that after the link is sent, The device will freeze for a few minutes. Then, most of the time, it resprings. After that, the Messages app wont load any messages and will continue to crash. He tested chaiOS on an iPhone X and iPhone 5S, and said the bug affects iOS versions 10.0 through 11.2.5 beta 5.

Masri said he published the bug to alert Apple: My intention is not to do bad things. My main purpose was to reach out to Apple and say, Hey, youve been ignoring my bug reports. I always report the bug before relea...

Making Bannon Snitch On Trumpanzee "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"


Tuesday I was in a hospital waiting room with a TV tuned to CNN when Bannon waddled into a closed door congressional hearing. I noticed that "Sloppy Steve" was wearing a coat and tie. I didn't know he owned a tie. Maybe he borrowed one. That night it was all over the news that he refused-- for 10 hours-- to answer any substantive questions from members of the House Intelligence Committee, even after they served him with a subpoena. Democrat Adam Schiff described the escapade as "a gag order by the White House." Even after the subpoena was served, according to Schiff, Bannon "was instructed by the White House to refuse again to answer any questions concerning the time during the transition and his time in the administration... The scope of this assertion of privilege-- if thats what it is-- is breathtaking. It goes well beyond anything weve seen in this investigation." The White House once again claimed it is fully cooperative with the Putin-Gate investigation.

Bannon confirmed that last week he had been served with a subpoena by Mueller and that he would cooperate with that investigation, further infuriating members of the Intelligence Committee, including Republicans. With Intel Committee chair Devin Nunes recused from participating, acting head Mike Conaway (R-TX) adjourned the hearing with the proviso it would be back in session-- with Bannon-- today.

So what do Mueller the congressional investigators want from Bannon? He was part of the regime when Trump decided to fire Comey. They want him to help them prove the very likely obstruction of justice charges in the impeachment process. The Daily Beast's Betsy Woodruff reported that "executive privilege-- the presidents right to keep certain information from the public so he can have frank conversations with ai...

U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson announced U.S. troops will remain in Syria indefinitely, even after the defeat the Islamic State, The Washington Post reported. Tillerson unveiled the plan at a Syria policy speech hosted by the Hoover Institution at Stanford University.

Tillerson argued that the U.S. presence was needed to secure five national security objectives:

  • Defeating al-Qaeda and ISIS completely
  • Pushing back Iran
  • Supporting an end to the Syrian Civil War that does not include regime President Bashar al Assad
  • Ensuring Syria is free of weapons of mass destruction
  • Helping refugees return after the war.

Tillerson also warned that a hasty U.S. withdrawal could precipitate an ISIS resurgence.

We cannot repeat the mistake of 2011, where a premature departure from Iraq allowed al-Qaeda in Iraq to survive and eventually become ISIS, he said.

ISIS has one foot in the grave, and by maintaining an American military presence in Syria until the full and complete defeat of ISIS is achieved, it will soon have two, he added.

Majority Of National Parks Panel Quits In Protest Of Ryan Zinke "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Nearly all members of the National Park Service advisory panel abruptly quit on Monday in protest of the Trumpadministration's policies, which they say have neglected science, climate change and environmental protections. "From all of the events of this past year I have a profound concern that the mission of stewardship, protection, and advancement of our National Parks has been set aside," the head of the panel, Tony Knowles, wrote in a letter of resignation addressed to Interior Secretary Ryan Zinke, who oversees management of the country's national parks and monuments. The letter was signed by nine of the panel's 12 members. The bipartisan panel was appointed by former President Obama. The terms of the members who quit were due to expire in May.

Irans central bank claims billions from German stock exchange "IndyWatch Feed War"

AFP | Iran is looking for billions from the German stock market operator
FRANKFURT AM MAIN (AFP)  German stock market operator Deutsche Boerse said Thursday that Irans central bank had levelled claims for billions of dollars against its Luxembourg subsidiary Clearstream, which blocked the funds after the US accused Tehran of funding terrorism.The central bank (Bank Markazi) demands some $4.9 billion (4.0 billion euros) of assets it says are held in Clearstream accounts belonging to it and to Italian bank UBAE, plus interest, Deutsche Boerse said in a statement.

If the assets themselves cannot be recovered, the Iranian institution wants damages in the same amount.

The long-running, complex case involves some $2.0 billion frozen in Clearstream accounts while court cases against Iran are heard in the US and Luxembourg, as well as some $1.9 billion Clearstream has already transferred to the US based on a 2013 court ruling.

That judgement saw Iran ordered to compensate around 1,000 American plaintiffs, including families of some 214 soldiers killed in a double suicide bombing in Lebanese capital Beirut in 1983 that claimed 299 lives.

Victims of a 1996 attack in Saudi Arabia that killed 19 Americans were also compensated.

Clearstream believes that the claims against it are unfounded, Deutsche Boerse said in its statement.

Ultra-Thin Memory Storage Device Paves Way for More Powerful Computing "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Engineers worldwide have been developing alternative ways to provide greater memory storage capacity on even smaller computer chips. Previous research into two-dimensional atomic sheets for memory storage has failed to uncover their potential -- until now.

A team of electrical engineers at The University of Texas at Austin, in collaboration with Peking University scientists, has developed the thinnest memory storage device with dense memory capacity, paving the way for faster, smaller and smarter computer chips for everything from consumer electronics to big data to brain-inspired computing.

"For a long time, the consensus was that it wasn't possible to make memory devices from materials that were only one atomic layer thick," said Deji Akinwande, associate professor in the Cockrell School of Engineering's Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering. "With our new 'atomristors,' we have shown it is indeed possible."

Made from 2-D nanomaterials, the "atomristors" -- a term Akinwande coined -- improve upon memristors, an emerging memory storage technology with lower memory scalability. He and his team published their findings in the January issue of Nano Letters.

"Atomristors will allow for the advancement of Moore's Law at the system level by enabling the 3-D integration of nanoscale memory with nanoscale transistors on the same chip for advanced computing systems," Akinwande said.

Turkey says its mistrust of Washington over Syria continues "IndyWatch Feed War"

ANKARA (Reuters) Turkey said on Thursday it was not satisfied with Washingtons attempts to allay its concern about the creation of a Syrian border force on its southern frontier, adding its direct mistrust of the United States continued.

NATO member Turkey has reacted angrily to a statement by the U.S.-led coalition that it is helping set up a new 30,000-strong border force in Syria including members of the Syrian-Kurdish YPG militia.

Turkey regards the YPG as a terrorist organization and an extension of the outlawed Kurdistan Workers Party (PPK), which has waged a three-decade-old insurgency in Turkeys southeast.

On Wednesday, U.S. Secretary of State Rex Tillerson said he had met with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu to clarify the issue, and said the situation had been misportrayed, misdescribed.

We voiced our discomfort in the meetings we held with the Secretary of Defence and the Secretary of State However, the United States statements did not fully satisfy us, Cavusoglu told broadcaster CNN Turk in an interview.

Our direct mistrust of the United States continues We need to see concrete steps from the United States.

Cavusoglu reiterated Turkeys warning that it would intervene militarily in the Kurdish-controlled Afrin region close to the Turkish border, and said he had told the United States that Ankara did not want to face an ally there.

We will intervene in Afrin. We will also take steps to the east of the Euphrates against threats, Cavusoglu said.

Turkey and the United States, both allies in NATO, have been on the same side for much of Syrias civil war, both supporting rebels fighting to overthrow Syrian President Bashar al-Assad. But a decision by Washington to back Kurdish forces fighting against Islamic State infuriated Ankara.
