How Much Americas Biggest Corporations Have Stolen From Their Own Workers "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

How do the biggest corporations earn such massive profits? Theyd like you to think its the result of delivering a superior product or service. But one part of that story is years of wage theft from their employees. Good Jobs First, a policy resource center focused on government and corporate accountability, recently carried out a year-long investigation into wage theft by large employers, compiling information from collective action lawsuits brought by groups of ripped-off workers, as well as actions brought by the department of labor and state-specific regulatory agencies. The results, brought together in a report released this week titled Grand Theft Paycheck: the Large Corporations Shortchanging their Workers Wages, are eye-opening: 4,220 cases since the turn of the millennium with penalties totaling $9.2 billion.

From G7 To Shanghai Summit, U.S. Swagger Falls Flat "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The response to President Donald Trumps arrogant withdrawal from the Iran nuclear deal and wild threats of tariffs on U.S. allies has exposed declining U.S. influence on a global scale. This became all too obvious at the gathering in Quebec, Canada, of the G7 summit of the seven major imperialist powers United States, Canada, Britain, France, Germany, Italy and Japan. With the exception of Japan, the other six countries are also leading members of the U.S.-commanded NATO military alliance. Washington is increasingly unable to control the global agenda. U.S. corporate power finds it can no longer order the nations of the world to isolate the Peoples Democratic Republic of Korea or Iran. The U.S. has less to offer except threats of military destruction, unpayable debt and broken agreements.

American Wars And Self-Decline "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The U.S. has, of course, embarked on a trillion-dollar-plus upgrade of its already massive nuclear arsenal (and thats before the cost overruns even begin). Its Congress and president have for years proven eager to sink at least a trillion dollars annually into the budget of the national security state (a figure thats still rising and outpaces by far that of any other power on the planet), while its own infrastructure sags and crumbles. And yet it finds the impoverished North Koreans puzzling when they, too, follow such an extreme path. Clueless is not a word Americans ordinarily apply to themselves as a country, a people, or a government. Yet how applicable it is.

The Left in Syria: From Democratic National Change to Devastation "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

In the beginning of 2017, after 6 years of devastation and bloodshed, many of this trends proponents released a document entitled A Call to Our Syrian People: For Freedom, Dignity, Citizenship, and Democracy, A Critical Viewpoint to Reposition the Course of the Syrian Revolution. Here they confessed to immense mistakes and delusions, including their wagers that There would be some sort of international intervention and a reliance on the foreigners and dependence on their agendas; The delusion of counting on Al-Nusra Front and its likes; the delusion of liberated areas; and the delusion of betting on ideological and sectarian discourses and entities. These, in addition to other miscalculations, were proven to be the creation of wishful and fatalist mentalities that had nothing to do with politics and balance of powers and showed no sensitivity towards peoples sufferings and sacrifices or to the costs our people dearly paid.

The Retroscope At Play "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By now, the establishment ought to be painfully aware that the FBI/NSA retro-scope is aimed at them, as well. Sometime in the next couple of years I expect a legislative backlash, especially if it keeps being used to take down friends of the high and mighty.

Whats interesting is that the FBI has stopped playing coy about how they are accessing the material, and what sort of material they are accessing:

In a letter to the presiding judge in the case against Michael Cohen, President Donald Trumps long-time personal attorney, the US Attorneys Office for the Southern District of New York revealed today that it had obtained additional evidence for reviewincluding a trove of messages and call logs from WhatsApp and Signal on one of two BlackBerry phones belonging to Cohen. The messages and call logs together constitute 731 pages of potential evidence. The FBI also recovered 16 pages of documents that had been shredded, but it has not yet been able to complete the extraction of data from the second phone. [ars]

I did a google image search for retroscope and look at this beauty!

Remember, youre supposed to believe that WhatsApp and Signal are secure and that the FBI has trouble accessing data off of them. For that matter, youre supposed to believe that Blackberries are secure too. Im sure thats why Michael Cohen used one certainly nobody would use a Blackberry because its a good phone. Blackberries were designed to implement a variation of the New York Reach-Around [stderr] since their server communications were up to Canada, it was international and therefore NSA was spared the trouble of having to pretend FISA courts mattered. Blackberrys whole security game fell apart when other countries most notably India and Saudi Arabia realized what was happening and started asking Blackberry to give them the keys to the crypto, too.

Harvard Rewinds the Biological Clock of Time "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Investigators at Harvard Medical School have identified the key cellular mechanisms behind vascular aging and its effects on muscle health, and they have successfully reversed the process in animals.

The scientists used a chemical compound thats an NAD+ booster called NMN which plays a critical role in repairing cellular DNA as well as maintaining cell vitality to test what would happen.

Could reversing the aging of blood vessels hold the key to restoring youthful vitality? If the old adage you are as old as your arteries reigns true then the answer is yes, at least in mice.

According to a new study by Harvard Medical School researchers, they have identified the cellular mechanisms that cause the aging of vascular arteries as well as the effects of such aging on the health of muscles. The Medical team was also able to successfully reverse this aging process.

What these findings seem to indicate is that theres a glitch in the normal crosswalk between both muscles and blood vessels and keeping both tissues healthy. The scientists were also able reverse the demise of blood vessels and muscle atrophy in the aging mice by using the synthetic precursors of two molecules naturally present in the body. This boosted their exercise endurance in the process.

The Medical team is excited because such a breakthrough will now pave the way to identifying new therapies for humans.

Study senior investigator David Sinclair, professor in the Department of Genetics at Harvard Medical School and co-director of the Paul F. Glenn Center for the Biology of Aging at Harvard Medical School stated weve discovered a way to reverse vascular aging by boosting the presence of naturally occurring molecules in the body that augment the physiological response to exercise.

Because there are some very important differences in biology between humans and mice theres a possibility that this treatment may not have the same effect in humans. Nonetheless, the research team plans to follow through with human clinical trials because the results of this experiment were important enough to prompt the research team in doing so.

Juneteenth Call to Action Against Prison Slavery Amidst Reports of Lockdowns, Strikes, Walkouts "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The Gainesville chapter of the Incarcerated Workers Organizing Committee (IWOC) and the Campaign to Fight Toxic Prisons (FTP) have joined the call, initiated by prisoners in Florida and Texas, for actions demanding an end to mass incarceration and prison slavery around Juneteenth 2018, Tuesday, June 19. Juneteenth is a celebration of the official end of chattel slavery in the United States. It marks the day when, two years after the Emancipation Proclamation, news of freedom reached slaves in Texas. Prisoners in Texas and Florida, many of whom have been at the forefront of the massive, prisoner-led movement to bring about desperately needed changes in the U.S. prison system are calling on allied groups fighting for prison reform on the outside to organize community events and direct actions in solidarity.

Research Confirms That A Mostly Plant-Based Diet Could Save Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Five new studies show that eating healthy, primarily vegetarian foods is associated with lower risk of chronic diseases, weight gain and death. What science has to say about nutrition is notoriously fickle, but advice about the benefits of eating more plants and less meat has been pretty consistent in the modern era. Not only is a vegetarian diet great for the planet, but it's great for our personal health as well. Now adding to the consensus are five new studies presented at Nutrition 2018, the flagship meeting of the American Society for Nutrition. Each of the studies examine the health impacts of a plant-based diet and importantly, a plant-based diet comprised of healthy plant-based foods.

US Provides Military Assistance To 73 Percent of Worlds Dictatorships "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

As of the fiscal year 2015, the last year for which we have publicly available data, the federal government of the United States had been providing military assistance to 36 of 49 dictatorships, courtesy of your tax dollars. The United States currently supports over 73 percent of the worlds dictatorships! Most politically aware people know of some of the more highly publicized instances of this, such as the tens of billions of dollars worth of US military assistance provided to the beheading capital of the world, the misogynistic monarchy of Saudi Arabia, and the repressive military dictatorship now in power in Egypt. But apologists for our nations imperialistic foreign policy may try to rationalize such support, arguing that Saudi Arabia and Egypt are exceptions to the rule.

End of life for pets "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Anyone who has loved a pet dreads the time when the pet seems to be suffering so much that you feel that the humane thing to do is euthanasia. But that decision is never obvious nor easy because there will be very bad days when you think that the time has come that are followed by better days and you are grateful you did not go through with the decision. This up-and-down can go through many cycles and you never get over the guilt of finally making the fateful and irreversible decision.

In this article Bernard Rollin, who is a professor of philosophy, animal sciences and biomedical sciences at Colorado State University, begins with some information that will shock and disgust anyone who has a pet.

In the 1960s, I knew people who, before going on vacation, would take their dogs to a shelter to be euthanized. They reasoned that it was cheaper to have a dog euthanized and buy a new one upon returning than pay a kennel fee.

But he says that in general peoples attitude towards pets has vastly improved.

Two decades later, I was working at Colorado States veterinary hospital when a group of distraught bikers on Harley-Davidsons pulled up carrying a sick chihuahua. The dog was intractably ill, and required euthanasia to prevent further suffering. Afterwards, the hospitals counselors felt compelled to find the bikers a motel room: their level of grief was so profound that the staff didnt think it was safe for them to be riding their motorcycles.

He says that this dilemma about when to put down a pet not only has deep emotional effects on the pets caregivers, it also affects the veterinarians who have to do the euthanizing.

In a paper that I published entitled Euthanasia and Moral Stress, I described the significant stress experienced by veterinarians, veterinary technicians and humane society workers. Many chose their profession out of a desire to improve the lot of animals; instead, they invariably ended up euthanizing large numbers of them, often for unethical reasons.

These ranged from I got the dog to jog with me, and now its too old to run, to If I die, I want you to euthanize the animal because I know it cant bear to live without me.

In other cases, the animal is experiencing considerable suffering, but the owner is unwilling to let the animal go. With owners increasingly viewing pets as family members, this has become increasingly common, and many owners fear the guilt associated with killing an animal too soon.

Ironically this, too, can cause veterinarians undue trauma: they...

A Good Father Is An Endangered Species "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Mothers and Fathers are the building blocks of the family. The family is the foundation of society. However, there are those that wuold tear down the family, and as such, place good mothers and fathers on the endangered species listbecause the upside-down radical left hates the family in the orm of which it was intended.

 Fathers Day

Did you know that Fathers Day is over 100 years old? According to some accounts, the first Fathers Day was celebrated in Washington state on June 19, 1910. Sonora Smart Dodd came up with the idea of honoring and celebrating her father while listening to a Mothers Day sermon at her church in 1909.

In 2014, when UK Facebook users were registering, they were able choose from one of 71 gender options, including asexual, polygender and two-spirit person, following the features successful integration in the US.

Users can choose a different gender option from the previous male and female choices by selecting custom in the gender tab of their profiles.

In addition, people who select a custom gender will now have the ability to choose the pronoun theyd like to be referred to publicly.

Are You Brainwashed? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Does it take a dictatorial regimeNazi or Communistto turn the media into a brainwashing machine? Common sense says that this is impossible in a democracy. Common sense is wrong. How is this done? Its quite simple, really: one has to suppress all other voices. One has to make sure that the citizen hears only one voice. One that repeats a few messages over and over, endlessly. This way the lie becomes truth. In such a situation, the ordinary citizen becomes convinced that the official line is really their own personal opinion. This is an unconscious process. When one tells a citizen that they are brainwashed, they are deeply insulted.

Guns Have Nothing To Do With Art-All-Night Shootings "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Another week, another mass shooting, this time in New Jersey at a festival called Art All Night.

I can already here the mating calls of the 2nd Amendment Republicans:

Too many doors!

Why do they let people were baggy clothes on a summer night?

This is what happens when liberals get together at festivals that value lefty things, like art!

Well propose a ban on doors, baggy clothes, and art to save the people just as soon as we find a way to stop all this criticism that keeps happening to us despite the fact were only exercising our 1st Amendment rights!

Call your representatives and senators and insist that they vote for the ban on doors, baggy clothes & art! Dont let them take away your guns! Freedom first!

Fuck.

Would you believe that the CNN story on this this morning included the line:

Authorities have heard that as many as 1,000 people were in the area at the time of the shooting, Onofri said. The festival entrances had no metal detectors, he said.

Yes. Yes of course you would.

As for the people, theres still one victim in extremely critical condition probably still in surgery. Twenty people were injured. It appears that one killed is in reference to a suspect that was killed, probably by police. Unusually for situations like this, there was actually another suspect as well, that one taken into custody alive.

I hope the final death toll doesnt get any higher.

Poverty American Style "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The US by saying that in practice, the United States is alone among developed countries in insisting that while human rights are of fundamental importance, they do not include rights that guard against dying of hunger, dying from a lack of access to affordable healthcare, or growing up in a context of total deprivation. . . at the end of the day, particularly in a rich country like the USA, the persistence of extreme poverty is a political choice made by those in power. With political will, it could readily be eliminated.

Set menu time "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


As you may know, I think that Radio 4's Sunday programme has a particularly pronounced liberal bias. I used to joke that it took its topics for discussion from a set menu. Among the items on that menu were "the usual airing of Muslim grievances" and "a call for something or other by a left-wing campaign group". This week's edition gave us items on Tax Justice Sunday, why Muslims are feeling victimised in Austria, an evangelical Christian's struggles with her sexuality (she's lesbian) and the Church's issues with LGBT rights, what difference having a female as head of Orthodox Judaism in the UK might make, Windrush and racism in the CofE, and why people in America think God has a feminine face...plus, in light of the Trump-Kim summit, an interview with a UK-based human rights advocate who fled North Korea. Very little of that dispels my impression about Radio 4's Sunday's bias. (Not that it wasn't interesting).

I particularly enjoyed the Tax Justice Sunday item - a joint interview with Methodist minister Rev David Haslam and Dr Jamie Whyte from the Institute of Economic Affairs. Ed Stourton's handling of it made me laugh. I think it's safe to say that he was more of Rev David's (pro-tax) party than Dr Jamie's (anti-tax) party.  (Listening to it brought back memories of that scene in The Simpsons where someone's monocle keeps dropping out through shock. Please listen for yourself. It begins at 11.56).

Dust Clouds Can Explain Puzzling Features of Active Galactic Nuclei "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Submitted via IRC for BoyceMagooglyMonkey

[...] A new analysis by researchers at UC Santa Cruz, published June 14 in Monthly Notices of the Royal Astronomical Society, explains these and other puzzling features of active galactic nuclei as the result of small clouds of dust that can partially obscure the innermost regions of AGNs.

[...] The findings have important implications because researchers use the optical emissions from the broad-line region to make inferences about the behavior of the gases in the inner regions around a supermassive black hole.

[...] "Once the dust crosses a certain threshold it is subjected to the strong radiation from the accretion disk," said Harrington. "This radiation is so intense that it blows the dust away from the disk, resulting in a clumpy outflow of dust clouds starting at the outer edge of the broad-line region."

The effect of the dust clouds on the light emitted is to make the light coming from behind them look fainter and redder, just as Earth's atmosphere makes the sun look fainter and redder at sunset. In their paper, Gaskell and Harrington present several lines of observational evidence supporting the existence of such dust clouds in the inner regions of active galactic nuclei. They developed a computer code to model the effects of dust clouds on observations of the broad-line region.

Brexit dividend (2) "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Contrary to an optimistic statement I made in the previous post, you should never put anything past Big Bad Al.

The former Labour spin supremo has been accusing the BBC of "Brexit Dividend propaganda" this morning. (Of course he has. He's got no shame!). It's "the Beeb playing along with Tory spin yet again" apparently. 

Unfortunately, he then goes and spoils his own spin by re-tweeting Paul Johnson of the IFS saying there isn't a Brexit dividend. And where was the IFS man saying that? Er, on the BBC. 

Indeed, the busy Mr. Johnson has been on both The Sunday Politics and the BBC News Channel this lunchtime rubbishing the claim of a Brexit dividend.

DSLWP-B first JT4G test "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Yesterday, between 9:00 and 11:00, DSLWP-B made its first JT4G 70cm transmissions from lunar orbit. Several stations such as Cees Bassa and the rest of the PI9CAM team at Dwingeloo, the Netherlands, Fer IW1DTU in Italy, Tetsu JA0CAW and Yasuo JA5BLZ in Japan, Mike DK3WN in Germany, Jiang Lei BG6LQV in China, Dave G4RGK in the UK, and others exchanged reception reports on Twitter. Some of them have also shared their recordings of the signals.

Last week I presented a JT4G detection algorithm intended to detect very weak signals from DSLWP-B, down to -25dB SNR in 2500Hz. I have now processed the recordings of yesterdays transmissions with this algorithm and here I look at the results. I have also made a Python script with the algorithm so that people can process their recordings easily. Instructions are included in this post.

The JT4G transmissions are made just after the end of each GMSK telemetry packet, as illustrated by the following figure made by Cees Bassa using the signals he received at Dwingeloo. Also note that the JT4G signal starts at an UTC minute, as it is common with WSJT-X modes. The frequency of the lowest JT4G tone seems to be 1kHz higher than the GMSK carrier.

GMSK and JT4G signals from DSLWP-B recorded by Cees Bassa at PI9CAM

As far as I know, the following stations have shared recordings of the JT4G signals:...

THE BIRD FLU EXPERIMENT HAS GONE CHINA SYNDROME "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

If you control the food supply, you control the people Henry Kissinger

The Telegraph is reporting that the deadly Chinese poultry flu could be disease X and it could spark a worldwide pandemic.

Scientists across the world are on high alert for what the World Health Organisation (WHO) has dubbed disease X a newly emerging pathogen that could prove as destructive as the 1918 Spanish flu which killed between 50 and 100m people

But heres the truth behind all of this.

Epidemiological studies indicated that reticuloendotheliosis virus (REV) infection and vertical transmission is common in chickens in some areas of southern China. These are immunosuppressive viral infections.

REVs originated as mammalian retroviruses that were accidentally introduced into avian hosts in the late 1930s, during experimental studies of P. lophurae, and subsequently integrated into the fowlpox virus (FWPV) and gallid herpesvirus type 2 (GHV-2) genomes, generating recombinant DNA viruses that now circulate in wild birds and poultry.

The immunocompromised millions of birds are now ideal hosts for the designer zoonotic man made avian flu strains such as H5N1 and H7N9 and others that will follow.

The end result will be an attack on our food supply, forced vaccinations and forced aerial spraying of chemicals.

Viruses dont jump species unless they instructed to by their designers.

The Affairs of the USPTO Have Turned Into Somewhat of a Battle Against the Courts, Which Are Simply Applying the Law to Invalidate US Patents "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Poor assessment of patent applications can now be stopped or compensated for by the Patent Trial and Appeal Board (PTAB) and, failing that, the Court of Appeals for the Federal Circuit (CAFC)

A death squad
A death squad is what patent maximalists nowadays call a court (where the only casualty is a piece of paper, or a low-quality patent which US law renders invalid)

Summary: The struggle between law, public interest, and the Cult of Patents (which only ever celebrates more patents and lawsuits) as observed in the midst of recent events in the United States

THE ideology of patent maximalism is a toxic one and it is infectious only within circles that sell, trade, and exploit patents for litigation, not innovation. Its all about financial motivations and those motivated to spread patent maximalism typically profit from mass litigation. Its their most expensive product or service as it can last several years (appeals, discovery, so-called damages with a cut for respective law firms).

They dont seem to care about facts, only mythology and beliefs.Earlier this year we started habitually referring to patent maximalism (of the patent microcosm) as Cult of Patents because it has become almost like a religion to these people. They dont seem to care about facts, only mythology and beliefs.

A reader suggested this chart as we approach U.S. Patent No. 10,000,000, Patently-O wrote on Friday. As we said before, its a pretty meaningless milestone from this Cult of Patents (the patent maximalists). Half a decade or so after Alice and nearly a decade after the Bilski case the Office just granted far too many patents far too fast. Look at the rate of expansion of grants; do people invent twice as many things today as they did about a decade ago? Or a hundred times more than a century ago? Or maybe its just patent maximalism taking over, dubbing just about anything an invention and justifying/ permitting a monopoly on it?

This post resumes from my previous one Tips for an Information Security Analyst/Pentester career - Ep. 57: Forensic challenge (pt. 1), where I analyzed interesting artifacts and event IDs from Event Viewer with reference to a clean system configuration.

This time, I'll analyze a hacked Windows 7 Professional system and I'll show you what those artifacts and event IDs look like in that specific context.

Also, I'll show you how to use a PowerShell script to save the most relevant event IDs to a csv file, that you can then filter by using Excel or parse through PowerShell or other programming languages.

With that being done, I'll show you how certain event IDs may be reflected in AlienVault Cloud Central alarms, even though the online demo looks quite different from the configuration I use at work.


My work configuration reflects much more closely the same hex codes you find in Event Viewer.

For this reason, after showing some examples in the online demo, I'll display a real-world example taken from my job, of course duly redacted in order to protect corporate data.

We hebben hier te maken met negen verschillende doorsneden. Dat wil zeggen dat de hele hoogte van een kolom in negen gedeelten is onderverdeeld. Acht keer is er sprake van een verspringing.  
De rechthoekvorm wordt een box column genoemd, een doos kolom. Wat opvalt is dat de eerste groep kolommen bijna massief zijn! Bij de tweede groep (zie zelf wat er gebeurt!). Duidelijk wordt ook hoe enorm doordacht dit deel van de constructie is. Niet voor niets werd er gezegd dat de constructie 3 tot 5 keer het gewicht van het totale gebouw kon dragen.

Boko Haram: Suicide Bombs Kill 31 in Nigeria "IndyWatch Feed War"

Suspected Boko Haram jihadists killed at least 31 people in a twin suicide bomb attack on a town in northeast Nigeria, a local official and a militia leader told AFP on Sunday.

Two blasts ripped through the town of Damboa in Borno state on Saturday evening targeting people returning from celebrating the Eid al-Fitr holiday, in an attack bearing all the hallmarks of Boko Haram.

Following the suicide bombings, the jihadists fired rocket-propelled grenades into the crowds that had gathered at the scene of the attacks, driving the number of casualties higher.

There were two suicide attacks and rocket-propelled grenade explosions in Damboa last night which killed 31 people and left several others injured, said local militia leader Babakura Kolo.

Two suicide bombers detonated their explosives in Shuwari and nearby Abachari neighbourhoods in the town around 10:45 pm (2145GMT), killing six residents, said Kolo, speaking from the state capital Maiduguri, which is 88 kilometres (55 miles) from the town.

No one needs to be told this is the work of Boko Haram, Kolo said.

A local government official, who spoke on the condition of anonymity, confirmed the death toll.

The latest death toll is now 31 but it may increase because many among the injured may not survive, said the official.

Al Sunnah wa Jamaah: New jihadist group in northern Mozambique "IndyWatch Feed War"

Since the end of May, Mozambiques far northern province of Cabo Delgado has seen a surge in violence perpetrated by a new Islamist group that first came to the fore in October 2017.

Residents of the Muslim-majority Cabo Delgado province have been describing the same situation for several months: Armed men emerge from the forests to wreak havoc on local villages including looting and decapitation.

Such violence has intensified over recent weeks, prompting around three thousand people to flee Cabo Delgado and leaving 30 people dead since the end of May, according to a provisional count. These killings have been attributed to a jihadist group known as Al Sunnah wa Jamaah.

The group first appeared in the region in 2014, but stepped up its activities in October 2017 with an attack on a police station and barracks in the city of Mocimboa da Praia, in central Mozambique.

Joaquim Nhamirre, AFP | The village of Naunde on June 13, after it was attacked by Islamists on the night of June 4-5.

Socio-economic causes of radicalisation

Al Sunnah wa Jamaah members tend to be socio-economically marginalised young people, without a decent education or formal employment, said Sheik Habibe Saide, Joao Pereira and Salvador Forquilha, academics at Mozambiques Maputo University who have been studying the Islamist group, in an interview with AFP.

These disadvantaged locals have been joined by young immigrants looking for opportunities, religious leaders educated abroad and local merchants, the academics added. Members of the Islamist group mark their difference from the countrys mainstream Muslims who comprise 17 percent of the Mozambican population with shaved heads, beards and white turbans.

The birth of Al Sunnah wa Jamaah is very similar to what was seen with Boko Haram in Nigeria, commented ric Morier-Genoud, senior lecturer in African history at Queens University Belfast, in an article for news website The Conversation. It started as a religiou...

He claims that he has already started opening doors for negotiations, reasoning the fact that the majority of them are Syrians, that supposedly they like their country and may prove receptive to this option.

Let them eat candy Israels ideological war against incendiary kites from Gaza "IndyWatch Feed War"

As the Hamas terror group threatened to launch 5,000 flaming kites and balloons at Israel on Friday, Israeli children at the Gaza border countered with an airborne message of peace, the Times of Israel reported  on Friday.

At Kibbutz Nir Am, which has suffered a number of fires sparked by burning kites flown from Gaza, children and residents launched balloons carrying candy towards the Palestinian enclave.

Adults and children are seen releasing soft-colored helium balloons attached to candy. On the one hand a demonstration of tolerance, as it were. But how tolerant is it really, to send off candy to those whom you simultaneously force to drink the sea at the Gaza concentration camp?

Israeli apologists love this one, you can be sure of that. Heres Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus new Deputy Media Advisor, Hananya Naftali , tweeting immediately:

Israeli children at Kibbutz Nir-Am are flying balloons with candies to #Gaza. We want peace, but the media will never show you this. #Hamas.

Israeli fields in the vicinity of Gaza have been targeted by incendiary kites and balloons during the recent months. As Norman Finkelstein writes, Israel appraised damage from the fires at around $1.4 million, or less than the average price of two homes in Brooklyn, New York (where I reside). Such suffering is apparently incomparably greater than that of Gazans. Our fields VS their lives. Therefore, we have to officially return to targeted assassinations (as if the massacres of about 130 unarmed protesters in the recent months were not just that). Aye, Public Security (and Hasbara) minister Gilad Erdan has recently suggested that Israel apply targeted assassinations of those who fly incendiary kites:

The fact that Hamas is enabling the shooting and the sending of the kites means we must return to targeted assassinations, and the kite launchers and Hamas commanders should be targeted for killing.

Bout the Whole Sharp, Pointy, Stabby Things Issue and Guns "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I am not feeling particularly well these last few days. In addition to the usual depression that is  just an everlasting companion these last years, and the hay fever due to my neighbour not having harvested the hay yet, several joints have decided to act up so I cannot work properly. And I do not feel like discussing partisan politics this week except to say fuck all politicians and political ideologies across the spectrum left right and center sideways.

However this is my hundredth post on Affinity and despite the number being completely arbitrary, I thought it should be about something more substantial than about strawberries misbehaving.

The whole issue of sharp and pointy objects has got me thinking more than one time throughout my life. When I was a kid I was being told that I will be allowed to handle sharp things from the age of ten years. I looked forward to it. For my tenth birthday I got a small pocket knife and my father has taught me how to sharpen it and how to properly care for it. In our household a sharp knife is really sharp and a blunted knife is what usually gets called sharp by many people I know. I had a knife somewhere around my person ever since.

I really like knives, daggers, machetes, axes and swords. I also like bows and crossbows. I am not collecting either, but I would like to make some of each and when I do make them, I will take care to make them not only functional, but beautiful too.

However there is no denying that all these objects are potential murder weapons. Some of them are indeed optimised for being a weapon, whilst others can have as a primary function being a tool.

I would like to know where this fascination with dangerous things comes from. My take on the issue is that it si far more common than people might realize at first thought. For example many of the most aesthetically appreciated animals are very finely tuned killing machines. Many people like cats and a person who does not appreciate the beauty of a tiger or a leopard would be a rare specimen indeed. Dragons and dinosaurs are very popular among kids and they are not known for being fluffy and cuddly.

This has brought me in a roundabout way to thinking how is liking knives different from liking guns and how is that in turn different from liking squids? And my take on the thing is, that not too much, if at all.

The important thing is not what one does like, but what one does about it. A gun collector or skeet shooter is just as normal as a sword collector or a fencer, and they all are just as normal as a stamp collector. The difference is in how people are conditioned by culture about dealing with the specific issue both from the point of the enthusiast, and from the point of of the general populace. Some hobbies are frowned on, some are viewed as harmless oddities, some are...

Brexit dividend "IndyWatch Feed Europe"


Jonathan Blake

Wonder if Lord Adonis and Alastair Campbell will be retweeting Guido Fawkes today?  The latter writes, "Have to say the Number 10 press team have played a blinder this morning. First they got Marr to agree to an easy pre-record interview rather than a live. Then they got the BBC to lead all morning on the Brexit dividend rather than the fact that the money is actually coming from tax rises".

Is it fair to say that the BBC has acted as Mrs May's lapdog over this? Well, here's an example of how they've been reporting it - a BBC-on-BBC interview on Breakfast
Sally Nugent: We're joined now by our political correspondent Jonathan Blake. Jonathan, so we're hearing about this kind of...it's being framed as money as a result of Brexit, but it's really not as straightforward as that, is it?
Jonathan Blake: No. Things in politics are rarely as simple as the politicians might like to point out. And when the Prime Minister talks about the Brexit dividend, that is something which a lot of people argue doesn't really exist. The UK will stop paying into the EU budget after we leave the EU, but that money may well be accounted for elsewhere if the government wants to keep funding sectors such as agriculture which get funding back from the EU as a result. There is also the rebate that the UK gets back every year as well from its contributions. And the government's own spending watchdog, the Office for Budgetary Responsibility, has said that tax revenues will fall overall as a result of Brexit. The government has accepted that so we'll have less money to spend in general. Nevertheless, that's the detail. It's the message that matters for the government and for the Prime Minister to come out and clearly link the money she apparently thinks the UK will save as a result of leaving th...

Whats Driving The Peace Process In Korea? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

One very important aspect is the stance of the South Korean (ROK) government. President Moon Jae-in came to power last year on the basis of a campaign promising, among other things, a serious bid to improve relations with the DPRK. Moon, a former student activist and human rights lawyer, represents the most progressive wing of mainstream South Korean politics (admittedly this is not saying much) and was mentored by Kim Dae-jung, author of the 'Sunshine Policy,' which aimed to build understanding and de-escalate tensions with the DPRK. While essentially pro-United States, Moon is on record as saying that "South Korea should adopt diplomacy in which it can discuss a U.S. request and say no to the Americans."

Patent Marketing Disguised as Patent Advice "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Sheep and wolf

Summary: The meta-industry which profits from patents and lawsuits claims that its guiding us and pursuing innovation, but in reality its sole goal is enriching itself, even if that means holding science back

WED LIKE to take a moment aside from the usual EPO and USPTO focus. Something ought to be said which was said here many times before but merits extra emphasis.

The problem is, such patent consultants or practitioners or whatever they call themselves are rarely independent and impartial observers.When it comes to patent advisors, their motivation is usually to get more business or returning customers. This means that advice would likely gravitate towards lawsuits, even futile ones that cannot be won. The problem is, such patent consultants or practitioners or whatever they call themselves are rarely independent and impartial observers. Theyre personally involved and theyre immersed in a particular industry that relies on certain activities a subject we shall cover separately in our next post.

Patent attorneys and lawyers are typically in the business of advising on how to manage the mess which they themselves create (or at least perpetuate); we say so with no intention of offending anyone in particular. Its just putting the simple truth out there. Sure, there are some attorneys and lawyers who are honest and with great integrity (some of them send us information and material); some are willing to express the occasional dissent towards patent maximalism at great risk of being framed traitors to their profession. But theyre the exception rather than the norm. They wont be the ones to become abundantly wealthy.

The latter prior art is very important as it helps document the history of science and credit/attribute the correct people for their contribution to the sciences.To give a couple of examples from several hours ago, over at Patent Docs they now market or promote some upcoming webinars (Patent Portfolio Management and...

FPV-Rover 2.0 Has 3D Printed Treads and Plenty of Zip "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[Markus_p] has already finished one really successful 3D printed tracked robot build. Now hes finished a second one using standard motors and incorporating what he learned from the first. The results are pretty impressive and you can see a video demo of the beast, below.

Most of the robot is PLA, although there are some parts that use PETG and flex plastic. There is an infrared-capable camera up front and another regular camera on the rear. All the electronics are pretty much off the shelf modules like an FPV transmitter and an electronic controller for the motors. Theres a servo to tilt the camera, as you can see in the second video.

The body fits together using nuts and magnets. The robot in the video takes a good beating and doesnt seem to fall apart so it must be sufficient. What appealed to us was the size of the thing. It looks like it would be trivially easy to mount some processing power inside or on top of the rover and it could make a great motion base for a more sophisticated robot.

Weve seen some similar projects, of course. This tracked robot uses mind control. And OpenWheel is a great place to get treads and other locomotion designs.

Looking for a tracked rover you can drive around on the desktop? [Markus_p] has one of those too!

Homeless Man Becomes Millionaire by Building Beaches in Peoples Backyards "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Sometimes, you dont know your true calling until it finds you. This was certainly the case for Eric White, 33, the owner of Zydeco Construction. The once formerly-homeless man now owns a Louisiana-based company that builds beaches in peoples backyards, and hes making millions doing it.

When White was 15-years-old, he was homeless for about eight months. Growing up, things werent easy for me, he told USA Today. White dropped out of school in the ninth grade and only had a second-grade reading skill. I could hardly even spell my name, he said.

Despite his lacking education, he always felt as if he understood construction. I knew if I worked at it, said White, I could really do something with it. He got his start working for a local construction company just to pay the bills. But later, he learned of a job opening with a Baton Rouge-based company that paid $12 hour.

In the last-but-one post we found a BBC presenter leading a Twitter mob. In the last post we found a BBC editor on the receiving end of a Twitter mob, and Rob Burley - the BBC's Editor of Live Political Programmes - made a cameo appearance. Earlier in the week, however, Rob himself was on the receiving end of a massive Twitter mob. This one was led by Carole Cadwalladr of the Observer, still fuming over her last appearance on The Andrew Marr Show where Isabel Oakeshott was put on the sofa next to her. Carole was reported as being in tears after the show, after having the accuracy of her reporting challenged on air. Isabel Oakeshott has subsequently released a stash of emails she'd been sitting on for months. Carole thinks those emails reinforce her own case and blames Isabel for sitting on them whilst simultaneously besmirching her journalism on the Marr sofa. The massed battalions of her supporters (the Cadwalladristas) lit their torches and brandished their pitchforks and set out to burn the witch (Isabel Oakeshott). On the way they turned on poor Rob Burley. It all got out of hand for a while, with Rob also copping it over Isabel's invite to appear on this week's Question Time (which went down very badly with the Cadwalladristas), and Ms Cadwalladr ended up having to delete another tweet after getting her facts wrong (not for the first time).

UFC Fighter Overcomes Depression by Liberating Pygmy Slaves in the Congo "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

There is no denying that hardship, which is an inevitability of life, propels change. Oftentimes, that change is necessary. Perhaps it is the loss of a loved one, a sudden career change, or a chronic sickness. While it may, at first, perceived to be bad, the development can also be a blessing. This was the case for UFC fighter Justin Wren, who overcame depression to change the lives of hundreds of pygmy people in the Congo.

Wren began his career as an all-American champion in wrestling. Later, he started entering local fights to stay in shape while taking college courses. Eventually, this led to a successful MMA career. At one point, his professional record was 10-1 and he was picked to be on The Ultimate Fighter. It seemed as if he was on top of the world. But, the truth of it was he was battling depression and was addicted to painkillers.

I was a drug addictI was diagnosed with clinical depression and my life just sucked for a long time even though on the outside things were going great. In that time, I had become a national champion in wrestling a couple times and started fighting professionally, and the drug addiction and depression just got worse every time after I would fight, Wren told InnoTechToday.

NEW YORKSeventeen years of war in the Middle East and what do we have to show for it? Iraq after our 2003 invasion and occupation is no longer a unified country. Its once modern infrastructure is largely destroyed, and the nation has fractured into warring enclaves. We have lost the war in Afghanistan. The Taliban is resurgent and has a presence in over 70 percent of the country. Libya is a failed state. Yemen after three years of relentless airstrikes and a blockade is enduring one of the worlds worst humanitarian disasters. The 500 moderate rebels we funded and armed in Syria at a cost of $500 million are in retreat after instigating a lawless reign of terror.

Short Gamma-Ray Bursts Do Follow Binary Neutron Star Mergers "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Researchers at Oregon State University have confirmed that last fall's union of two neutron stars did in fact cause a short gamma-ray burst. The findings, published today [14 June] in Physical Review Letters, represent a key step forward in astrophysicists' understanding of the relationship between binary neutron star mergers, gravitational waves and short gamma-ray bursts.

Commonly abbreviated as GRBs, gamma-ray bursts are narrow beams of electromagnetic waves of the shortest wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. GRBs are the universe's most powerful electromagnetic events, occurring billions of light years from Earth and able to release as much energy in a few seconds as the sun will in its lifetime. GRBs fall into two categories, long duration and short duration. Long GRBs are associated with the death of a massive star as its core becomes a black hole and can last from a couple of seconds to several minutes.

Short GRBs had been suspected to originate from the merger of two neutron stars, which also results in a new black hole -- a place where the pull of gravity from super-dense matter is so strong that not even light can escape. Up to 2 seconds is the time frame of a short GRB.

How To Access Your Inner Strength During Traumatic Experiences "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Mateo Sol via Loner Wolf

Almost all of us have experienced some kind of traumatic or shocking event.

When I speak of trauma, I dont always mean extreme situations such as natural disasters, instances of abuse, rape, murder, and accidents. While traumatic experiences often are severe and horrific, they can also be seemingly mundane experiences such as losing a job, daily stress, divorcing, and moving somewhere foreign. Trauma also can, and often does, come as a result of the spiritual awakening process in which our entire self-concept begins to crumble and were thrown into the abyss of an existential crisis.

Trauma is unique for each person. While we might find changing jobs just another daily task, another person may find the switch highly distressing. We should be very careful about judging other people when it comes to trauma. Every person is different and possesses different levels of sensitivity.

How to Know Whether Youre Going Through a Traumatic Experience

A traumatic experience is anything that severely threatens your emotional, psychological or physical well-being. Essentially, trauma is anything that causes us to feel like were losing or have lost control. Feeling traumatized is often accompanied by the experiences of feeling:

  • Numb or disconnected from the world
  • Sad and hopeless
  • Anxious and fearful
  • Hypervigilance (constantly looking out for danger)

The Syrian observatory for Human Rights (SOHR) revealed that the SAA killed 18 fighters of ISIS and lost 8 soldiers during the clashes south of the T2 station.

Moreover, warplanes of the Syrian Arab Air Force (SyAAF) destroyed a convoy of ISIS, which was attempting to withdraw from the pocket towards the terrorist groups positions north of the T2 station, according to Syrian pro-government activists.

From its side, the ISIS-linked news agency Amaq announced that ISIS fighters ambushed a convoy of the SAA east of the T3 station in the eastern Homs countryside. ISIS fighters destroyed a truck and a battle tank of the SAA with IEDs and ATGMs.

In the last two months, ISIS stepped up its attacks against the SAA in the governorates of Homs, Deir Ezzor and al-Suwayda. In response to this, the SAA and its allies launched a series of security operations against the remaining cells of the terrorist group there. However, little have been done so far.

Lawmakers out of control: Federal and state prosecutors' underhanded tactics "IndyWatch Feed World"

In the middle of the night last summer, FBI agents raided the home of Paul Manafort, President Trump's one-time campaign chairman, and seized documents prosecutors assumed Manafort would not voluntarily surrender even though he had cooperated with all prior document requests. This spring, the U.S. attorney's office for the Southern District of New York, acting on a tip from Special Counsel Robert Mueller, made a surprise appearance at the office of Trump's personal attorney, Michael Cohen, and removed thousands of documents. It appears law enforcement officials were not necessarily looking for documents directly related to the ongoing investigation of whether the Trump campaign worked with Russian agents to defeat Hillary Clinton, but rather at possible crimes wholly unrelated to the campaign, presumably to put the squeeze on Manafort and Cohen to turn on Trump in the Russia probe.

FDA Found Glyphosate in Nearly All Foods Tested and Hid the Results "IndyWatch Feed World"

In an alarming revelation, it has come to light that government scientists at U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) have found the weed killer ingredient glyphosate in many popular processed foods. 

This information was in emails that were obtained through a freedom of information request (what they did with that intelligence is SHOCKING!).

Glyphosate is perhaps best known as the main ingredient in the Roundup weed killer brand from the Monsanto company. And, the FDA has been testing foods for the presence of herbicides and pesticides including, this highly toxic substance glyphosate for two years but had not released results. (Gee, I wonder why).

Spain: Animal Liberation Front Targets the Running of the Bulls "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

from Bite Back

The Animal Liberation Front has claimed responsibility for an arson and sabotage targeting facilities in Irua/Pamplona that will be used during the festival of San Fermin. During the night of June 6-7, a forklift was set on fire, anti-bullfighting messages painted and other damage caused inside the Corrales del Gas, enclosures for bulls who will run in the encierro (running of the bulls) and be killed in the bullring during the festival. Earlier in the week, 13 holes used for the placement of fence posts along the route of the bull run were filled with cement.

Anonymous communique (translation):

Every year in the city of Pamplona, under the rusty umbrellas of tradition and festivities, more than 40 bulls are killed. More than 40 animals will face a painful and agonizing end in the streets and bullring of this city. For these animals, the Corralillo del Gas becomes their corridor of death, and the fence becomes their cage: some waiting days for their turn to arrive, they pass from the bad drink of the morning confinement and the painful death of the bullfight in the afternoon, and although the fact of killing these animals seems neither more cruel nor more unnecessary than the exploitation, use and systematized murder of millions of animals around the world for consumption, experimentation, clothing or leisure, we believe it is necessary to take measures to end this cruel act that takes place in the city of Pamplona

For reasons that we consider more than obvious and sufficient, and that we will not go into explaining now, we consider legitimate:

All kinds of protest and struggle against the suffering we cause to animals.

Liberating animals from their confinement and providing them a decent home.

Recording or obtaining images to expose conditions in which animals are kept.

In a 5-4 decision released June 11, the U.S. Supreme Court upheld an Ohio law that provides for the removal of infrequent voters from the states election rolls.

On the surface, the courts majority opinion in Husted v. A. Phillip Randolph Institute is a highly technical analysis of whether Ohios so-called Supplemental Process law runs afoul of the federal National Voter Registration Act of 1993 and the Help America Vote Act of 2002. The courts decision, written by Justice Samuel Alito and joined by the courts other Republican appointees, concluded that it did not.

According to Alito, the Ohio law, which dates back to 1994 but in recent years has been more strictly enforced, is simply meant to keep the States voting lists up to date by removing the names of those who have moved out of the district where they are registered.

Heres how the Supplemental Process works: Voters who have failed to cast a ballot for two consecutive years (the equivalent of one federal election cycle) are mailed a pre-addressed, postage prepaid card asking them to verify that they still reside at the same address. Those who do not return the card and fail to vote in any election for four more years are presumed to have moved and are removed from the rolls.

As Alito and the courts Republican majority view voting rights, there is no textual inconsistency between the Ohio law and the right to vote, as protected by various federal statutes and the Constitution. All that a resident need do to avoid disenfranchisement is return the postcard sent by the state or vote within an overall six-year period.

Alitos reasoning seems at first clear enough, and on its face apolitical. Justice Stephen Breyers dissenting opinion, joined by the courts four Democratic appointees, is based largely on differing statutory interpretations.

But, as Justice Sonia Sotomayor pointed out in a separate dissent, Alitos majority opinion is in reality an exercise of disenfranchisement that entirely ignores the history of voter suppression in America and will disproportionately affect minority, homeless, low-income, and disabled voterswho, not coincidentally, tend to vote Democratic.

Our democracy rests on the ability of all individuals, regardless of race, income, or status, to exercise their right to vote, Sotomayor wrote, stressing that while most states have a variety of processes in place to maintain the accuracy of their voting lists, only Ohio presently triggers voting-roll purges based solely on an individuals failure to vote in a single election cycle.

As one instance of the Supplemental Process racially disproportionate impact, Sotomayor cited figures compiled by the NAACP...

UK interior minister robbed by moped rider, pledges police action "IndyWatch Feed War"

Britains interior minister, Sajid Javid, said on Sunday that his phone had been stolen by moped-riding thieves several months ago and that he was seeking changes to police rules to help tackle the growing problem.

Moped robbery, where attackers surprise pedestrians and grab phones and bags, is one of several violent crimes in London that have attracted national attention. Earlier this year, a spate of stabbings briefly pushed Londons murder rate ahead of New Yorks.

In an interview with the Sun on Sunday newspaper, Javid said he was robbed outside Londons Euston station as he went to make a phone call. The incident happened before he took up his job in charge of domestic security.

It happened in a flash. I was walking out of Euston station and reached for my phone to call a taxi before I knew what was happening, it had gone. They just rode up, grabbed it and zoomed off, he said.

Javid, seen by some as a potential challenger to Prime Minister Theresa May, was appointed in April after a scandal over the treatment of legal migrants led to the resignation of his predecessor.

Javid said that while overall crime levels were down, he would make tackling rising knife crime and serious violence a priority. He wants to change rules which prevent police from chasing suspects on mopeds if they are not wearing helmets.

What Arabic Media Says About the US June 17, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed War"

Arabic media review

Washington and ISIS Colluding  Alahed News (Lebanon)

The Lebanese outlet Alahed News claimed that ISIS took control of part of the eastern Syrian city Abu Kamal (Al-Bukamal) from the Syrian army. To gain access to the city, Alahed reported that ISIS carried out 10 suicide bombers, including four suicide car bombs on the periphery. (ISIS has denied that they entered and took over part of the city.)

Alahed asks, How was ISIS able to carry out these attacks, especially since sources in the Syrian army say that ISIS usually attacks from east to west meaning from the areas under control of the coalition, led by the U.S.?

This shameful American support of ISIS is not the first of its kind, Alahed writes. Even though American forces have announced a number of times that they have attacked ISIS in eastern Syria, not one serious military attack by the Americans against ISIS was carried out.

Whats happening is the exact opposite. Just a few days ago, ISIS carried out an attack on the periphery of Deir ez-Zor right after America planes attacked targets including the Syria army and its allies.

Lou Dobbs Issues Warning: If Paul Ryan Deceives Trump into DACA Amnesty, GOP Will Lose House Majority (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

President Trump offered Democrats DACA amnesty in exchange for a border wall.
They wouldnt take it.

So now Republican leaders want to give DACA to the Democrats for free.
Its how they roll.

Republican leaders are going to reopen immigration and amnesty talks this week.
Voters be damned.

Lou Dobbs warned Tucker Carlson the move will likely shuffle in a Democrat majority.
They dont care.

Breitbart.com reported:

Fox Business Network host Lou Dobbs says if President Trump is deceived by the Republican establishment and House Speaker Paul Ryan into supporting an amnesty for illegal aliens, it will most certainly cost the GOP their majority in the House.

During a segment of Lou Dobbs Tonight, Dobbs blasted a plan by Ryan and Rep. Bob Goodlatte (R-VA) which would grant amnesty to at least 1.8 million illegal aliens who have been shielded from deportation by the President Obama-created Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program.

According to the White House, Trump now supports the amnesty deal, though the president told reporters outside the White House on Friday that he would not sign such a bill.

Dobbs said Ryan and White House officials attempt to deceive Trump into supporting the amnesty deal would lead to a Democrat majority in the House for the upcoming midterm elections.

The victim, named as 54-year-old Wa Tiba, was reported missing in Muna regency, southeast Sulawesi on Thursday night, after she went to check on her corn plantation. The next morning family members searching for her found a torch, slippers and a machete on the ground near the plantation, reports Tribune News.com.

How to respond to a creation museum "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

There are creationist museums all over the place Ive been to ones in Kentucky, Washington state, and Missouri, and maybe a few others, but theyre all rather forgettable. I havent been to the the Big Valley Creation Science Museum in Alberta (how could I, what with the Royal Tyrrell right nearby?), but someone visited it and posted a summary. Harry Nibourg, the guy who runs it all, sounds like an enthusiastic glad-hander who is happy to give anyone a tour of his personal garbage heap. But I think these tourists summed it up well.

While I was there, a retired English couple had been making their way around the exhibits. As they reached the end, Harry asked them what their professions were. Turns out theyre retired biology teachers.

Harry asked, Did you understand what you were looking at, and did it change your minds?

In the polite manner that only the English can achieve, the husband replied, Well, you see, I think your museum is a crock of shit.

Harry offered that they should agree to disagree.

That last lineis there any other phrase that is a better example of passive-aggressive truculence and an admission of a failure to defend ones ideas than agree to disagree? Hate it.

Thousands hold peaceful protests in Vietnam against Chinese economic zones "IndyWatch Feed War"

Thousands of people in central Vietnam demonstrated peacefully on Sunday against government plans to lease new economic zones to foreign investors, witnesses told Reuters, a few days after protesters in a nearby province clashed with police.

Protesters fear the leases may be snapped up by investors from powerful neighbor China, with which Vietnam has a rocky history, and were also upset about a recently-passed cybersecurity law that they worry would limit free speech.

Public protests in Vietnam are usually quickly quelled by the police. The ruling Communist Party, despite sweeping economic reform and increasing openness to social change, retains tight media censorship and tolerates little criticism.

Security on Sunday was tight in many cities and provinces in Vietnam, with large presence of police in public areas.

But in central Ha Tinh province, thousands of people attending a Sunday mass protested peacefully against the laws, three witnesses told Reuters, confirming livestream footages on Facebook.

Protesters held signs that said No leasing land to Chinese communists for even one day or Cybersecurity law kills freedom. The protest in Ha Tinh province lasted for two hours on Sunday morning without clash with the police, witnesses said.

Earlier this week the Vietnamese government vowed to punish extremists it said had instigated rare clashes with police where protesters hurling bricks and Molotov cocktails at police and damaging some government buildings in Binh Thuan province.

Vietnams National Assembly chairwoman on Friday said the lawmakers condemned the acts of abusing democracy, distorting the truth, provoking, causing social disorder and greatly affecting the peoples life, she said in a televised session.

Volcano in the Galapagos Islands erupts after series of 9 earthquakes "IndyWatch Feed World"

Lava flows and a gas column spanning about two to three kilometers high have been a feature of the eruption. According to the Geophysical Institute (I) of the National Polytechnic School, the Galapagos' La Cumbre volcano - located on Fernandina island - erupted Saturday. The eruption took place between 11:00 a.m. and 11:15 a.m. (Galapagos time) and was preceded by a series of nine earthquakes ranging from 2.5-magnitude to 4.1-magnitude. La Cumbre volcano measures 1,476-meter high and occupies almost the entire island. The eruption occurred on the northeastern sector of the volcano. Lava flows and a gas column spanning about two to three kilometers high have been a feature of the eruption. Reports are that a flow has already reached the sea. "There are some species that could be affected, however, being a flow (of lava) that is in only one direction, on only one side of the island, the possible impacts that there would be would not have a significant impact on biodiversity," director of the Galapagos National Park (PNG), Jorge Carrion, assured.

Exit From The Matrix: The greatest day of your life "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

June 17, 2018

Oh yes, there was such a day.

Maybe you were 10 years old, and it was summer, and you were running across a field and the sky suddenly opened up and you saw a huge future, as yet undefined. But it was there, and it was yours.

Unlimited possibility. Unlimited energy.

No one had yet told you imagination was just a toy. No one had said it was all fantasy and you should throw it away.

You were unbounded.

You were in the center of your own power, the only power that matters: your endless capacity to create and invent.

This is what I had in mind when I assembled my collection, Exit From The Matrix. This is exactly what I had in mind when I included an extensive set of imagination exercises a person can practice daily

Because the expansion of imagination is the fountainhead from which New Life is launched.

It can happen at any time.

At any moment.

Problems and past history begin to dissolve in the light of what you can invent, in accordance with your deepest desires.

This is what freedom is for.

But you can make the shift. You can take your creative power into your own hands and invent the reality you desire, and you can make it into fact in the world.

Is Florida Salvageable For The Democrats In November-- One Democrat In Particular "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Bill Nelson will be 76 in September

There are no guarantees in electoral politics, but right now the smart bet would be that the Democrats win a majority in the House, maybe even substantial majority. The Senate is a lot tougher. Winning back the Senate, means that the Democrats keep all the red state seats that Trump won that they hold and pick up 2 more, bringing their caucus to 51 and redicinging the Republicans' down to 49. Some of the Trump states look pretty safe for the Democratic incumbents: Pennsylvania, Ohio, Wisconsin, Michigan, North Dakota, Montana, West Virginia, perhaps even Indiana and Missouri. Democrats even look competitive in 3 or 4 Republican-held Trump states: Nevada, Arizona, Tennessee, possibly Texas. So what's missing from this picture? One purple state with a Democratic incumbent: Florida. Bill Nelson has held the seat for 18 years. Trump didn't wipe out Hillary the way he did in some of these other seats. He only won 4,617,886 (49.0%) to 4,504,975 (47.8%).

Last time Nelson ran (2012) he trounced Republican Connie Mack IV, 4,523,451 (55.2%) to 3,458,267 (42.2%). Nelson out-spent Mack $17,125,413 to $7,508,151. As of March 31 of this year Nelson had already raised $13,466,786 and his presumptive opponent, Governor Rick Scott hadn't started raising yet-- but is wealthy enough for it not to matter. He can self-fund whatever he needs to outspend Nelson.

All In The Family: Law Firm Hired By Disgraced FBI Agent Peter Strzok Donated More Than $24K to Hillary Clinton "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

In the run-up to the release of the Department of Justices Office of Inspector Generals report on misconduct by the FBI during the Clinton E-Mail Investigation, disgraced former FBI Deputy Head of Counter-Intelligence Peter Strzok hired Washington DC law firm Zuckerman Spaeder LLP. Another Zuckerman Spaeder Attorney, William W. Taylor, represents Trump-Russia Dossier creator Fusion GPS, after being originally retained to assist with subpoenas from the House Intelligence Committee.

Zuckerman Spaeder has donated more than more than $30,000 to Democratic candidates for the 2018 election cycle so far. The firms largest contribution was to anti-Trump Democrat Senator Jon Tester. During the 2016 election cycle, the firms largest contribution, $24,383, went to support none other than Hillary Clinton.

Zuckerman Spaeder LLP Political Contributions, courtesy of OpenSecrets.org

The Zuckerman Spaeder attorney assigned to Peter Strzoks case, Aitan Goelman, was formerly the Director for the Division of Enforcement of the Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC), but left left the agency to work for Zuckerman Spaeder LLP in January 2017. Goelman has also been a contributor to the Huffington Post.

Aitan Goelman has mounted an aggressive defense to the apparent misconduct laid out in the OIG Report released on Thursday. In a statement to Law and Crime Goelman said Special Agent Strzok did not back burner inspection of the Weiner laptop in the fall of 2016. He continued, saying Second, while Special Agent Strzok openly admitted that he believed that the Russia investigation was far more important to American national security than the Clinton email investigation, this conclusion is evidence of Special Agent Strzoks lucidity, not his bias.

As of Friday, Peter Strzok is working in the human resources department of the Federal Bureau of Investigation.

Technology in Kubricks *2001: A Space Odyssey* "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

This post serves up some spoilers of detail, though no major spoilers of plot until the penultimate you must go see it paragraph.  Upon a re-viewing of this movie, I found the following striking:

1. There is a Skype-like service for phone calls, but it never occurs to anyone that something like sending an email might be possible or even desirable.  A lot of major and even apparently simple technological advances just arent that self-evident.  The cameras in the movie also remained quite primitive and clunky, even by pre-smart phone standards.  Maybe people expected a great stagnation in cameras back then.

2. At the time, Kubrick apparently thought it plausible that the audience would buy into common, widespread and indeed commercially viable space travel by 1992.  The film was released in 1968.

3. Pan American flies people into outer space, and apparently used this new market to avoid total bankruptcy.  Their stewardesses still have silly hats and costumes, and they act in a vaguely self-demeaning manner.

4. The film shows some signs of recognizing that Moores Law might happen.  Hal for instance is advanced AI, but he is not huge in size.  And the portrait of voice recognition technology is quite realistic.

5. Stars do not twinkle in outer space, however.

6. Hal 9000 would be less creepy with a female voice, and indeed Apple and Amazon figured that out some while ago.  Note to my tech friends: do not program your personal assistant bots with a resentful, quivering, paranoid, passive-aggressive male voice.

7. The movie seems to suggest that chess-playing computers are a major achievement, when in fact this was mastered relatively easily, compared to many other AI problems.  The movie shows this chess game, with Hal as Black.  It is the kind of game you might expect a strong computer to play against a human, namely with a finish based on visually counterintuitive tactics.

8. It is a truly dystopic vision to think that Howard Johnsons will be serving us food in space.

9. The first time I saw the movie, which I believe was in the mid-1970s, I was more stunned by seeing Americans talking to Russians as if they were normal people than by any of the technology.

Here is a good Wikipedia page on technologies in the movie.  Now a few spoilers:
