Six data security questions that every board needs to ask "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

As data breaches become a constant headline, data security should be a major concern for company boards everywhere. Unless a board member has been hired specifically to provide oversight for cybersecurity programs, many boards may find themselves unprepared to perform the necessary level of due diligence. This lack of understanding and the inability by the board to challenge cybersecurity assumptions is one of the key reasons why Chief Information Security Officers perennially lack the resources More

Jack Ruby Knew When and Where JFK Would be Shot!, 1901 "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

See the 20% off Black Friday SPECIAL - Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good morning, Im still reporting on: Jack Ruby Knew When and Where JFK Would be Shot!, 1901 Synopsis: In just hours we come upon one of the saddest annual occasions on the American calendar tomorrow, the 54th anniversary of the public assassination of President Kennedy. I say public assassination because the when and where of the assassination was not dependent on the whims of the discredited lone gunman theory. It was known perhaps by dozens of insiders at the dark overlap where the mafia and the CIA meet. George W. Bush, who would run the CIA 13 years later, was on the steps of the Texas Book Depository on that fateful morning. But thanks to the recent release of thousands of additional pages regarding the JFK files, we now know that Jack Ruby was part of that insiders group. On the morning of the Kennedy Assassination, Jack Ruby asked an FBI informant by the name of Bob Vanderslice, if he would like to come on down to the lawn of the Texas Schoolbook Depository to watch the fireworks. For the last half century, Ruby has been portrayed as having become so distraught over the assassination that he basically lost his mind and charged the patsy Oswald inside police headquarters and shot and killed him. Now we know for an iron-clad fact for the very first time that this scenario is as bogus as a Clinton 3-dollar bill. The truth is that the Deep State of that day had something on Ruby that was so damaging that they could arm-twist him into publicly killing the patsy, knowing he couldnt get away with it, and knowing he would spend a good portion of the rest of his life in jail. In other words, Ruby would be a patsy on top of a patsy. Support Our Sponsors: - Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN.

[insert] There is still plenty of time 3 weeks from the Dec. 12 election in Alabama. In fact, the timing of truth couldnt be a better reflection of the Trump template from one year ago. Our prediction, well see the Dems push their skews in their polling until they start to crack perhaps in the last week of the run to the election. So, instead of sampling 400 former members of the Clinton Foundation, 400 members of Mitch McConnells extended family and 200 conservatives of both parties, someone is going break from the polling pack and actually include a couple hundred Trump voters into the game of Opinion-opoly. Remember, the goal is to get back to zero skews before 00:01 on election day or you will not pass GO and collect another 200 million dollars, lest their skewing of the American public becomes even more widely recognizable.

Roy Moore Accusers Story Destroyed!, 1898b "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Good morning, Im still reporting on: Roy Moore Accusers Story Destroyed!, 1898b Synopsis: Desperate Democrats attempts to smear Judge Roy Moore took a serious hit last week with the revelation that their leading accuser, Beverly Nelsons Delbra Adamss only piece of evidence of a relationship with Moore was a high school annual that she claimed he signed. Even troubled attorney Gloria Allred could not answer questions convincingly about the authenticity of the signature, nor would she give the annual up for professional examination by forgery experts. Case closed on Beverly Nelson. So today, the desperate Dems fell back to Judge Moores first accuser, Leigh Corfman as their star witness. We had not bothered to expose her in the past because her story is so weak. Corfman appeared on NBC today to the delight of Dems and never Trumpers who lauded her performance afterwards for its credibility. [insert] But Corfman has led a troubled past. She has claimed that several pastors at various churches made sexual advances to her over the years. According to the Gateway Pundit, she has been divorced 3 times and filed bankruptcy 3 times and has been charged with multiple misdemeanors. According to The Star: She says that her teenage life became increasingly reckless with drinking, drugs, boyfriends, and a suicide attempt when she was 16.

Game of Thrones Leaks Carried Out By Former Iranian Military Hacker "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Late July it was reported that hackers had stolen proprietary information from media giant HBO.

The haul was said to include confidential details of the then-unreleased fourth episode of the latest Game of Thrones season, plus episodes of Ballers, Barry, Insecure, and Room 104.

Hi to all mankind, an email sent to reporters read. The greatest leak of cyber space era is happening. Whats its name? Oh I forget to tell. Its HBO and Game of Thrones!!!!!!

In follow-up correspondence, the hackers claimed to have penetrated HBOs internal network, gaining access to emails, technical platforms, and other confidential information.

Image released by the hackers

Soon after, HBO chairman and CEO Richard Plepler confirmed a breach at his company, telling employees that there had been a cyber incident in which information and programming had been taken.

Any intrusion of this nature is obviously disruptive, unsettling, and disturbing for all of us. I can assure you that senior leadership and our extraordinary technology team, along with outside experts, are working round the clock to protect our collective interests, he said.

During mid-August, problems persisted, with unreleased shows hitting the Internet. HBO appeared rattled by the ongoing incident, refusing to comment to the media on every new development. Now, however, it appears the tide is turning on HBOs foe.

In a statement last evening, Joon H. Kim, Acting United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York, and William F. Sweeney Jr., Assistant Director-in-Charge of the New York Field Division of the FBI, announced the unsealing of an indictment charging a 29-year-old man with offenses carried out against HBO.

Behzad Mesri, an Iranian national who had previously hacked computer systems for the Iranian military, allegedly infiltrated HBOs systems, stole proprietary data, including scripts and plot summaries for unaired episodes of Game of Thrones, and then sought to extort HBO of $6 million in Bitcoins, Kim said.

Mesri now stands charged with federal crimes, and although not arrested today, he will forever have to look over his shoulder until he is made to face justice. American ingenuity and creativi...

Angela Merkels German government crisis: German president seeks solution "IndyWatch Feed War"

The German chancellor may now need Frank-Walter Steinmeier, the holder of a largely ceremonial office of the presidency, to retain power. So who is Steinmeier and what will his role be in the tense weeks to come?

Deutschland Merkel und Steinmeier Debatte zum Asylpaket II (picture-alliance/dpa/W. Kumm)

The German chancellor is, under normal circumstances, the countrys most powerful politician and de facto leader, but the German president is the actual head of state. Although largely symbolic, the office of the presidency carries the responsibility of ensuring that German democracy functions. That makes President Frank-Walter Steinmeier crucial to solving the impasse that is blocking the formation of the next German government.

The German system operates on the principle that politicians have a responsibility to put the will of the voters, expressed in elections, into practice. Thats why Steinmeier pointedly reminded the political parties on Monday that they had a duty to compromise and form governing alliances rather than just call for a new election. Talks to create a so-called Jamaica coalition between Angela Merkels conservatives, the center-right, pro-business Free Democratic Party (FDP) and the Greens acrimoniously broke down on Sunday.

Steinmeiers first move is to summon the heads of those parties, plus the Social Democrats (SPD), to discuss their issues and try to broker a compromise. The president spoke with the Greens and the FDP on Tuesday and has an appointment with SPD leader and defeated chancellor candidate Martin Schulz on Wednesday.

The current demonization of Russia as a global threat to American interests and values, and of President Putin as the worlds leading arch-villain, can be explained as an extension of the Cold War, of auto-piloting a foreign-policy paradigm that Republicans and Democrats feel comfortable with.

Palestinian Reconciliation Hangs in the Balance as Hamas, Fatah Meet in Egypt "IndyWatch Feed War"

A long road lies ahead for the reconciliation deal as key issues remain unsolved and both sides accuse each other of evasion

Palestinian young men hold up their passports as they wait to cross at the Rafah border crossing with Egypt, November 20, 2017. SAID KHATIB/AFP

Talks between Hamas and Fatah will continue in Egypt on Wednesday in an effort to reach agreement on implementing the next phases of their reconciliation deal.

.
The talks, which are being brokered by Egyptian intelligence, opened Tuesday at an Egyptian intelligence facility. Along with Hamas and Fatah, the smaller Palestinian parties also sent representatives.

Fatahs delegation was headed by Azzam al-Ahmad. Hamass delegation was led by the deputy head of its political bureau, Saleh al-Arouri, and its leader in the Gaza Strip, Yahya Sinwar.

The Egyptians managed to prevent any leaks from the meeting, so it remains unclear whether the parties will actually be able to reach agreements on the main issues: Establishing a unity government, convening the Palestinian National Council and holding general elections.

.
Senior officials from both Fatah and Hamas said that, at least on a declarative level, all parties are committed to the reconciliation. Nevertheless, many obstacles must still be overcome.

.
Shortly before the talks began, a senior Fatah official told Haaretz that despite Hamass talk of being committed to the reconciliation which calls for the Palestinian Authority to resume authority in Gaza Hamas still controls the territory in practice. Not only are Hamass forces effectively in charge of security, he said, but the senior officials it appointed to various government offices in Gaza still see themselves as the people in charge of civilian affairs.

One issue that hasnt yet arisen in the reconciliation talks, he added, is a dispute over land. Shortly before the first phase of the agreement was implemented, Hamas distributed tens of thousands of dunams of Palestinian government lands in Gaza, including lands where Israeli settlements once stood, to various armed militias, first and foremost its own military wing.

.
The Fatah official termed this a very significant issue. Almost a third of the territory went to the armed factions, and this proves that Hamas isnt ceding substantive power, he explained.

Hamas, for its part, accuses the Fatah-led Palestinian Authority of evading its own...

The Raleigh News & Observer Speaks Out: The ACP Pipeline is Wrong for North Carolina "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

The proposed ACP route through North Carolina

From an EDITORIAL of The Editorial Board, Raleigh News & Observer, November 18, 2017

More renewable energy, not a new Atlantic Coast Pipeline, is the best path for energy development.

The Atlantic Coast Pipeline is being touted as a vital supply line for economic development in eastern North Carolina, but it also would contribute to a major threat to the flood-prone region by exacerbating climate change.

The 600-mile natural gas pipeline is planned to run from West Virginias natural gas fields through Virginia and North Carolina. The $6 billion project backed by Charlotte-based Duke Energy and Richmond-based Dominion Resources is moving steadily through a thicket of federal and state requirements and its developers expect to complete the permitting process by mid-December. But disputes over access to local property and legal objections from environmental groups could still stall the massive tree cutting, tunneling and trenching needed for the pipeline.

Such obstacles may be temporary given the resources and political clout of the developers, but they are necessary and welcome. The Federal Energy Regulatory Commission failed to allow for a full public assessment of the pipeline before it granted approval. Appeals of that decision by various environmental and consumer advocacy groups will buy time for a fuller assessment of the need for the pipeline, its impact on the land and waterways and the risks it poses to residents who would live near it.

These practical and immediate concerns need to be addressed, but the overarching reason to oppose a new pipeline that would carry 1.5 billion cubic feet of natural gas a day is that it takes North Carolinas and the nations energy development in exactly the wrong direction. Money should be poured into the development of renewable energy and the generation of power on site rather than into the pumping in of fossil fuel from hundreds of miles away.

Representatives of Duke Energy and Dominion Resources acknowledge the need to reduce carbon emissions and say their companies are doing so. They note that coal-fired power plants have been converted to facilities fueled by cleaner burning natural ga...

Mueller Investigating Kushners Efforts to Combat UN Resolution Condemning Israeli Settlements "IndyWatch Feed War"

Jared Kushner and Ivanka Trump attend a ceremony in the Rose Garden of the White House to pardon the National Thanksgiving Turkey, Washington, D.C., U.S., November 21, 2017. Andrew Harrer/Bloomberg

WASHINGTON Robert Mueller, the special counsel investigating Russias interference in the 2016 U.S. presidential elections, is reportedly examining actions taken by Jared Kushner against a UN Security Council Resolution condemning Israeli settlements in the West Bank and East Jerusalem.

The Wall Street Journal reported on Tuesday that Mueller is looking into efforts made by Kushner, U.S. President Donald Trumps senior adviser and son-in-law, against the resolution, which passed in December 2016, during the transition period between the Obama and Trump administrations.

The UN resolution against Israeli settlements in the West Bank was proposed by Egypt, and the Obama administration controversially decided not to veto it. Israeli officials reached out at the time to the Trump transition team, asking the president-elect to try and exert influence over different countries to block the resolution.

Trump, in turn, attacked the resolution on his social media accounts and called Egyptian President Abdel-Fattah al-Sissi, requesting he reverse his countrys support of the resolution.

.
In the lead-up to the vote on the resolution, there were speculations in the Israeli media that perhaps Russia could veto it, thus protecting Israel from the lack of a veto by the Obama administration. Eventually, however, Russia voted in favor of the resolution, as did all the 14 other members of the UN Security Council, except the U.S., which chose to abstain.

Dutch tantra massage sexual abuse "IndyWatch Feed World"

Massage oil

Today, Dutch NOS TV reports (translated):

Being sexually abused during tantra massage and then having to pay for it

Dozens of women have reported sexual abuse by tantra masseurs and intimacy coaches. Two of them are willing to tell what happened to them because they consider it important to warn women. Both have reported to the police.

Those sessions are very expensive, I have lost thousands of euros on them.

Petra speaks to the masseur about the abuse, but he denies all responsibility. He even suggested that I had asked for this myself.

Roll Your Own Rotary Tool "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Rotary tools are great little handheld powerhouses that fill the void between manual tools and larger shop machines. Theyre also kind of expensive for what they are, which is essentially a power circuit, a switch, and a high-RPM motor with a tool coupling on the shaft. If your tooling needs are few and you have the resources, why not make your own?

[DIY King 00] built himself a cordless rotary tool for less than $10 out of commonly-available parts. It doesnt run nearly as fast as commercial rotary tools, but thats not necessarily a bad thing. He made the body out of 2 diameter PVC and mounted a 12 V, 400 RPM DC motor directly to one of the fiberglass end caps. Tools are chucked into a collet that screws into a coupler on the motor shaft.

For power, [DIY King 00] built a 7.4 V battery pack by wiring two 18650 cells from an old laptop battery in series. It isnt the full 12 V, but its enough power for light-duty work. These 2200 mAh cells should last a while and are rechargeable through the port mounted in the other end cap.

Drill down past the break to see the build video and watch the tool power through plywood, fiberglass, and inch-thick lumber. Once youve made your own rotary tool, try your hand at a DIY cordless soldering iron.

Unbelievable: Uber concealed data breach that exposed 57 Million records in 2016 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Unbelievable: Uber concealed data breach that exposed 57 Million records in 2016 and paid hackers to delete stolen records.

Uber CEO Dara Khosrowshahi announced on Tuesday that hackers broke into the company database and accessed the personal data of 57 million of its users, the bad news is that the company covered up the hack for more than a year.

The attackers accessed also the names and drivers license numbers of roughly 600,000 of its drivers in the United States.

The hack happened in 2016, it was easy for hackers that according to a report published by Bloomberg, obtained credentials from a private GitHub site used by the Uber development team. The hackers tried to blackmail Uber and demanded $100,000 from the company in exchange for avoiding publish the stolen data.

Two attackers accessed a private GitHub coding site used by Uber software engineers and then used login credentials they obtained there to access data stored on an Amazon Web Services account that handled computing tasks for the company. From there, the hackers discovered an archive of rider and driver information. Later, they emailed Uber asking for money, according to the company. states Bloomberg.

In a statement on Tuesday, Khosrowshahi said the intruders accessed cloud-hosted data stores:

I recently learned that in late 2016 we became aware that two individuals outside the company had inappropriately accessed user data stored on a third-party cloud-based service that we use. The incident did not breach our corporate systems or infrastructure.

At the time of the incident, we took immediate steps to secure the data and shut down further unauthorized access by the individuals. We subsequently identified the individuals and obtained assurances that the downloaded data had been destroyed. We also implemented security measures to restrict access to and strengthen controls on our cloud-based storage accounts. reads a CEOs statement.

You may be asking why we are just talking about this now, a year later. I had the same question, so I immediately asked for a thorough investigation of what happened and how we handled it....

Guess Who Thought Trump Was Paid By Putin? "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

As I was perusing the New York Times article on Rep. Dana Rohrabachers woes, I was reminded that back on June 15th, 2016, House Majority Leader Kevin McCarthy was captured on tape confiding with Paul Ryan, Evan McMullin and others that he swore to God that Vladimir Putin was paying Rohrabacher and also Donald Trump. When the recording leaked, the House leadership tried to explain it away by saying it was just an attempt at humor. But McCarthy was serious and Ryan immediately swore everyone present to secrecy.

Some of the lawmakers laughed at McCarthys comment. Then McCarthy quickly added: Swear to God.

Ryan instructed his Republican lieutenants to keep the conversation private, saying: No leaks. ... This is how we know were a real family here.

The remarks remained secret for nearly a year.

With the daily deluge of news and the constant exposure of new damaging facts, its easy to forget little details like the fact that the House leadership suspected Trump and Rohrabacher of being on the Kremlin payroll. They have, however, followed up on the Rohrabacher end of things. Theyve limited his travel, and Rep. Ed Royce, the chairman of the Foreign Affairs Committee, fired Rohrabachers top committee aide, Paul Behrends, because of his ties to pro-Russian lobbyists.

On the other hand, theyve done precious little about Trump.

I want to do a little something here that I think will help you visualize the moment in time when McCarthy said Trump was being paid by Putin and Paul Ryan swore everyone to secrecy. That meeting occurred on 6/15/16, but I want to extend the timeline a bit in both directions so you can see what was going on and put McCarthys comments into their proper context.

Were going to be looking at a pretty consequential two-week period of time.  Its important to know that just prior to the start of our timeline here, on May 26th, Trump finally secured the majority of the GOP delegates he needed to win the nomination. Also, you should know that on June 3rd, WikiLeaks...

Why Politicizing the U.S. Census Is Dangerous "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Let me ask you an honest question. What do you think about this argument? Lets say I tried to convince you that competitive elections are bad for America. That seems counterintuitive, right? Wouldnt it be better if politicians had to earn reelection through performance and they could be easily voted out if they became embroiled in scandal? How might I go about convincing you that other factors outweigh these sensible considerations?

In his 2008 book, Redistricting and Representation: Why Competitive Elections are Bad for America, [Prof. Thomas Brunell] argued that partisan districts packed with like-minded voters actually lead to better representation than ones more evenly split between Democrats and Republicans, because fewer voters in partisan districts cast a vote for a losing candidate. He has also argued that ideologically packed districts should be called fair districts and admits that his stance on competitive elections makes him something of an outlier among political scientists, who largely support competitive elections.

Im tempted not to take that argument seriously at all since Im positive its made in bad faith. But there is at least something within it thats defensible, which is the idea that its a good thing rather than a bad thing when a larger percentage of the electorate in a given district feels like theyre getting the representation that they want.

Taken in isolation, this is an attractive concept. But it fails to account for two other important concepts: legitimacy and disenfranchisement.

What they offer instead is a distinct Republican advantage, which is why Prof. Brunell wrote a book in defense of them.

If you have any doubt about this, read on:

Honoring What You Love "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

I have two stepsons who are in their twenties. When they were teenagers, I noticed that one of their least favorite holiday presents was the iTunes gift card. They could barely feign gratitude and they left the things unused. When I enquired about why they didnt want free music, they explained that they could get all the free music they wanted online, and they didnt need to download it song-by-song but could get whole albums just as easily.

My first thought was that this was some kind of illicit revival of Napster which I thought had been resolved all the way back in 2000 with the resolution of Metallica v. Napster. Peer-to-peer sharing of this type was illegal, so how could my kids be doing this? Soon enough I realized, however, that I was witnessing a generational change and that almost no one their age was buying music anymore.

My next thought was that the legal system had been overwhelmed by digital pirating and that musicians would soon be starving to death.  The problem, I discovered, was so pervasive that there was really no point in me as a parent trying to fight against it.  All that was left was to figure out how it might soon devastate writers.

Of course, the news industry had been staggering from the digital revolution for some time by that point, trying to find a way to avoid giving away its product for free.  They explored paywalls and premium content, all the while trimming payroll and closing foreign desks.  Nothing appeared to work, and unpunished pirating seemed like it would close off or undermine some of the few solutions that were being explored with some success.

The music industry had to adapt, and the patch so far has been for musicians to pretty much give up on selling CDs and instead focus on getting people to pay to see live performances.  They tour more and they charge much more for their concerts.

This is interesting because if basically follows the model of the Grateful Dead. They were an improvisational band that did not perform well in the studio, so they spent less time making albums and more time touring the country, often doing ninety or more shows a year.  They were unique in that they made no effort to keep people from taping and trading recordings of their concerts, and saw it as a way to increase their exposure and popularity.  They didnt charge more for their concerts, instead making up for their lost record sales revenue by having a higher volume of shows.

This past week, I looked into seeing a Dead & Company show in Philadelphia. This is an ensemble that includes three members from the original...

Dead Seven Years, Robert Byrd Lives On "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

Senator Robert Byrd of West Virginia would have been one hundred years old today, so it seems like a good time to look back on his career and think about how he is still relevant in our present era. Ira Shapiro has done that in an excellent piece that traces Byrd from his 1917 birth in South Carolina to his death in 2010. As part of that article, Shapiro has a lengthy exploration of the Byrd Rule which I wont try to replicate here. Whats more important is to understand why the rule became necessary, and Shapiro explains that in an admirably concise manner:

Byrds belief in process and procedure was also why he was a key player in producing and enacting the Budget Control and Impoundment Act of 1974. He recognized that if Congress could not produce an overall budget, it would inevitably cede power to the executive branch. He was willing to tolerate a Budget Act that established procedures that were an exception to the normal Senate rules. But when Byrd saw the reconciliation procedure being abused by the Reagan administration, he moved quickly to limit the use of reconciliation by ensuring that it could only be used for budget purposes and not for extraneous matters.

That little paragraph makes it easy to see both why the Trump administration and the Republican congressional leadership have pursued the budget reconciliation process to repeal Obamacare and enact tax reform and why they have found the effort so vexatious. As the Senate became more polarized by party in the 1970s, it became necessary to relax Senate rules to assure that some agreement on a budget could be achieved, because without any agreement on spending priorities, the administration would be forced or enabled to make those decisions unilaterally. As a result, the filibuster was eliminated for budget bills. Of course, this was immediately exploited by senators who saw their goals thwarted by the need to win a supermajority of votes and things were attached to the budget reconciliation bills that could not have passed during regular order.

Byrds solution was to empower the parliamentarian to strike things from reconciliation bills that had no obvious budgetary impact. He also found a way to cut down on shenanigans, like building out legislation that looks affordable in the short term but comes with giant balloon payments down the line. He did this by making sure that budget bills had to balance after ten years. Of course, accomplishing these things through rule-writing may sound easy but it actually required a large amount of intelligence and imagination. Byrd had both in abundance, but even he couldnt anticipate every way in which the rules could be bent to violate the spirit of what he was trying to achieve.

I have written almost incessantly this...

Uber admits covering up data hack that hit 57m users and drivers "IndyWatch Feed War"

AFP

Getty Images / AFP (file photo) | Personal data from some 57 million Uber riders and drivers was compromised in a hack that took place more than a year ago.

Text by NEWS WIRES

Latest update : 2017-11-22

Uber said Tuesday that hackers compromised personal data from some 57 million riders and drivers in a breach kept hidden for a year.

None of this should have happened, and I will not make excuses for it, said a statement from chief executive Dara Khosrowshahi, who took over at the ridesharing giant in August.

Two members of the Uber information security team who led the response that included not alerting users that their data was breached were let go from the San Francisco-based company effective Tuesday, according to Khosrowshahi.

The Uber chief said he only recently learned that outsiders had broken into a cloud-based server used by the company for data and downloaded a significant amount of information.

Stolen files included names, email addresses, and mobile phone numbers for riders, and the names and driver license information of some 600,000 drivers, according to Uber.

Uber paid the hackers $100,000 to destroy the data, not telling riders or drivers whose information was at risk, according to a source familiar with the situation.

Co-founder and ousted chief Travis Kalanick was advised of the breach shortly after it was discovered, but it was not made public until Ubers new boss Khosrowshahi learned of the incident.

You may be asking why we are just talking about this now, a year later, Khosrowshahi said.

I had the same question, so I immediately asked for a thorough investigation of what happened and how we handled it.

Khosrowshahi said that what he learned about Ubers failure to notify users or regulators prompted corrective actions.

12 Undeniable Ways to Prove the Earth is Round without Leaving the Planet "IndyWatch Feed World"

The great debate as to whether the earth is round or flat is one that has spanned centuries, with new discoveries and theories continually questioning the truth of either sides claims. Experts believe that it was Pythagoras that first presented the idea that the planet was round, dating back as far as 500 B.C. At the time the conclusion was reached through a comparison. He presented evidence to show that the moon was round, and then reasoned that if the moon was round, so too must be the Earth.

Greek philosopher Aristotle wrote, in his book On the Heavens: Again, our observations of the stars make it evident, not only that the Earth is circular, but also that it is a circle of no great size. For quite a small change of position to south or north causes a manifest alteration of the horizon. What does he mean? The view of the stars in the night sky differs depending on where in the world you are viewing them. If the Earth were flat we would all discover the same view, however, this is not the case.

Despite what may seem to many to be irrefutable proof that we are living on a round, spherical planet, there are a number of celebrities that have been vocal about their opposing views. Making statements to the mainstream media and sharing their views on social media, these well-known personalities are trying to start the conversation with any who will entertain the notion. This list of celebrities includes NBA star Kyrie Irving, Tila Tequila and rapper B.o.B.

While we arent going to flat out state that they are wrong, after all everyone is entitled to their opinion, there are a number of ways that one can observe the truth without the aid of a space shuttle or satellite.

Consider these 12 situations that prove that the Earth is round:

They had fun skewing her words and trying to roast her, although their attempt went sour when the only thing they had on her were their own twisted words and liar interpretations.  The same as we have seen from the MSM on President Trump. Well, meet the pretzel makers.  For what its worth. take a hard look at the accusers and then decide who did what and when.

Tonight's meme goes a long way in explaining how Alabama got where it is right this moment. Sure, it's a joke, but, then, maybe it isn't.

Don't you love it when the South gets all uppity about being stereotyped as a bunch of racist, inbred, barefoot, backward yahoos? Well, every damn time we people with a more diversified gene pool start to thinkin' that maybe, just maaayybee, places like Alabama, Mississippi, Louisiana, Texas, the Carolinas, and Georgia are about to catch up with, at least, say, the 1980s, well, there they go again! This Judge Roy Moore thing shows us that Alabama might as well be some wacko country in the Middle East, wedged somewhere in the 14th century between Iran and Pakistan. Better yet, let's just call it Al Abama and stick it in one of the isolated tribal mountain areas of Afghanistan.

The inbreeding thing was always a big part of jokes about the South, but, I have to admit that I had forgotten about the pedophilia factor. Then, I think of Louisiana's Jerry Lee Lewis marrying his 14 year old cousin. We guess things just haven't changed.

Al Abama's eager embrace of their defiant pedophile candidate shocks and dismays normal people. So does the emphatic jihadist support that Moore gets from fanatical Christian fundamentalists, people who are so much like the Taliban that one would have to be forgiven if they couldn't readily tell the difference between the two. Really, can you look at those Duck Dynasty freaks and others like them throughout the south and not think they look and sound like Muslim terrorists? They even sport the same beards, not to mention the bad case of crazy eyes. But, shouldn't we have seen it coming? I mean, just look at how many times we've seen clips of southerners parading around in th...

Attempted murder "IndyWatch Feed Tech"



Here is another clinical case in which  our so called cancer treatments were used.  The writer is a chap i have been in contact with and is one of two men who survived agent orange induced liver cancer whom i know.  I also knew plenty of liver cancer victims as well who are no longer with us.

Without question the first thing all should do is switch to a vegan diet and then go from there.  surgery may still be necessary but if the cancer is in retreat it can be postponed safely.

Then the second thing needed is CBD therapy.  We are still mastering that art but it needs to be said.

All good.

Hiding in plain sight: The mystery of the suns missing matter "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

hole sun main

 
 
 One of the direct consequences of my cloud cosmology derived from understanding the first act of creation being the Space time Pendulum naturally impling three tiers of matter is that all the stars and planets are shells fed by an inner sun of first tier matter actually producing second tier ( Dark Matter) and the observed third tier matter.

Needless to say, i do not want to say all that too loudly.

Yet today we have this.  Better data has opened up the prospect of a hollow sun and even the existence of an outer shell of dark Matter and I did not say this.

Hiding in plain sight: The mystery of the suns missing matter


A mass equivalent to 1500 Earths has vanished from the sun. Tracking it down could transform how we see the stars

18 October 2017

By Shannon Palus

https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23631482-800-hiding-in-plain-sight-the-mystery-of-the-suns-missing-matter/


THERE is a hole in the sun. Right in the middle, a mass the size of 1500 Earths has simply disappeared. Much of what we know about the suns behaviour says it should be there but when we interpret the data encoded in sunlight, that chunk of stuff is nowhere to be seen.

That has shaken up our understanding of how the sun works, and physicists are struggling to figure out what fills that hole. It could be a thing, like dark matter. It could be a concept, with elements such as carbon and nitrogen simply behaving in a way we didnt expect under crushing pressure. Or perhaps were looking at the sun in the wrong way.

Harvard Immunologist: Unvaccinated Children Pose ZERO Risk to Anyone and Heres Why "IndyWatch Feed Tech"



This spells it out pretty clearly, although i will soon see some ad homin attacks on this particular individual.

It also supports the possible ending of vaccination as a universal tool for at least a reasonable test period in order to find out what actually happens.  It would still be the weapon of choice for an emergency situation where we have good knowledge.

Harvard Immunologist: Unvaccinated Children Pose ZERO Risk to Anyone and Heres Why

Nov 8, 2017


Dear Legislator:

http://truthstreammedia.com/2017/11/08/harvard-immunologist-unvaccinated-children-pose-zero-risk-anyone-heres/


My name is Tetyana Obukhanych. I hold a PhD in Immunology. I am writing this letter in the hope that it will correct several common misperceptions about vaccines in order to help you formulate a fair and balanced understanding that is supported by accepted vaccine theory and new scientific findings.


Do unvaccinated children pose a higher threat to the public than the vaccinated?


It is often stated that those who choose not to vaccinate their children for reasons of conscience endanger the rest of the public, and this is the rationale behind most of the legislation to end vaccine exemptions currently being considered by federal and state legislators country-wide. You should be aware that the nature of protection afforded by many modern vaccines and that includes most of the vaccines recommended by the CDC for children is not consistent with such a statement. I have outlined below the recommended vaccines that cannot prevent transmission of disease either because they are not designed to prevent the transmission of infection (rather, they are intended to prevent disease symptoms), or because they are for non-communicable diseases. People who have not received the vaccines mentioned below pose no higher threat to the general public than those who have, implying that discrimination against non-immunized children in a public school setting may not be warranted.

10 Reasons Why the Mainstream Media Wont Cover the Las Vegas Shooting Anymore "IndyWatch Feed World"

It was the worst mass-shooting in American history, and despite a curious public hungry for answers, the entire tragedy remains shrouded in mystery and the mainstream media seems intent on keeping it that way.

The Las Vegas shooting, which left 58 dead and 546 injured, should remain as a top news story if only because of how many questions remain unanswered.

But then again, given the massive inconsistencies in the case from the official timeline changing multiple times to the coincidental deaths of 4 witnesses maybe they WANT the story to go away.

Lazarus APT uses an Android app to target Samsung users in the South Korea "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The North Korea linked group Lazarus APT has been using a new strain of Android malware to target smartphone users in South Korea.

The hacking campaign was spotted by McAfee and Palo Alto Networks, both security firms attributed the attacks to the Hidden Cobra APT.

The activity of the Lazarus APT Group surged in 2014 and 2015, its members used mostly custom-tailored malware in their attacks and experts that investigated on the crew consider it highly sophisticated.

This threat actor has been active since at least 2009, possibly as early as 2007, and it was involved in both cyber espionage campaigns and sabotage activities aimed to destroy data and disrupt systems.  Security researchers discovered that North Korean Lazarus APT group was behind recent attacks on banks, including the Bangladesh cyber heist.

According to security experts, the group was behind, other large-scale cyber espionage campaigns against targets worldwide, including the Troy Operation, the DarkSeoul Operation, and the Sony Picture hack.

The malicious code used in this last campaign is an Android malware delivered as an APK file that has been designed to mimic a Korean bible app that was published in the Google Play by a developer named GODpeople.

The malicious APK wasnt available on the Google Play store and it is still unclear how the APT distributed it.

The McAfee Mobile Research team recently examined a new threat, Android malware that contains a backdoor file in the executable and linkable format (ELF). The ELF file is similar to several executables that have been reported to belong to the Lazarus cybercrime group. (For more on Lazarus, read this post...

Reviewing BBC portrayal of Hizballah in Hariri resignation reports "IndyWatch Feed War"

The story of the Lebanese prime ministers stunning resignation as the BBC described it when news of Saad Hariris announcement broke on November 4th can obviously only be fully understood if one is familiar with one of the other major players in that story: Hizballah.

Essential context to that story of course includes the background to the current political landscape in Lebanon a story that was reported very superficially by the BBC at the time. Clearly too it is important to understand the extent of Hizballahs influence within the Lebanese government and armed forces as well as the effects that Hizballahs intervention and actions in other countries has had on Lebanon. An understanding of which countries and bodies designate Hizballah as a terrorist organisation is also crucial, as is familiarity with the extent to which Hizballah is financed and supplied by Iran and how that translates into Iranian influence in Lebanon.

As one Middle East analyst put it:

Over the last 11 months, Hariri became a fig-leaf for Hezbollah. As one of the main leaders of the opposition, his appointment as prime minister ostensibly proved Lebanon was maintaining its independence vis-a-vis Iran.

Now, however, the charade is over, and Lebanon remains as it was without the disguise pro-Iranian, pro-Syrian, and with Hezbollah firmly in control. The Lebanese pre...

Is The Glass Half Full or Half Empty? Pessimism Vs Optimism (Video) "IndyWatch Feed World"

Youre seeing so much news about positivity on the media for a reason people are finally understanding the true power of it! Do you consider yourself an optimist or a pessimist?

Being optimistic might sound like a grandma term to you and you might even think that it isnt worth anything, but oh boy would you be wrong! You might even go as far as saying that positivity is the key to a happy life. It truly is worth more than any amount of money, cars, or fancy smartphones. Being an optimistic person makes you much more appealing and makes other people feel comfortable. By being optimistic you might completely turn around someones day, or even a few peoples!

Optimism is great for many different reasons and it all around makes life more enjoyable for you and everyone around you. It could very well be the answer to changing the world! However, the opposite is also true: pessimism is extremely negative, but somehow never leaves our minds. Many people argue whether it is a natural occurrence or a personality flaw, but we do know one thing for sure it itself sucks a lot. Nobody likes to be around someone who is constantly whining and complaining about how hard life is or how theyve been mistreated, unfairly done, or wronged in any of the slightest ways. It might not be politically correct to admit, but we all know its true Nobody likes a negative nelly, and even the nelly himself is tortured by a negative perception! Our perception makes up our entire reality which means a negative perception inevitably equals a negative life.

If you think you might qualify as a negative person and thats most of us it is never too late to change your attitude. With practice and the willingness to come out of your comfort zone and learn, you can completely transform your life.

How Chinese See the Fall of Their Countrys Old Friend Robert Mugabe in Zimbabwe "IndyWatch Feed World"

(GV)  As political and military forces in Zimbabwe move to push longtime President Robert Mugabe from power, Chinese are watching the possible removal of a man many describe as a dictator with interest.

Mugabe, 93, has ruled Zimbabwe for more than 30 years since the countrys independence from British colonial rule. When the majority of western countries started to sanction Zimbabwe for Mugabes land seizure policy and human rights abuses in the early 2000s, China stepped in and became Mugabes most important ally.

Throughout the years, relations between Zimbabwe and China have grown closer through loans, construction and investment projects and diplomatic visits. Between 2010 and 2015, China granted Zimbabwe over US$1 billion in loans.

Such financial support has led Zimbabwes opposition party to accuse Beijing of aiding Mugabe and stealing billions from the country with illicit trade in the diamond industry. And, in fact, Zimbabwes economy has been deteriorating under Mugabes regime, and corruption is a serious problem. At the start of November Mugabe sacked his vice president, Emmerson Mnangagwa, in a move to seemingly position his own wife Grace Mugabe to take over the presidency.

The situation culminated on November 15, 2017 when the military took control of the country. Tens of thousands of Zimbabweans poured into streets of the capital Harare to celebrate and chanted anti-Mugabe slogans like Mugabe must go and No to Mugabe dynasty. ZANU-PF removed Mugabe as leader of the ruling party, pulling Mnangagwa into the spot, and threatened to impeach Mugabe if he didnt step down as president.

So far, however, Mugabe has refused to resign.

Such an old friend was not reliable

Quite a number of international media outlets have speculated Chinas involvement in the Zimbabwean coup as the military action took place just three days after the commander of the Zimbabwe army, Constantino Chiwenga, returned from a visit to China.

On popular social media platform Weibo, many Chinese netizens have also repeated the theory:

There is no great lung stagnation "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

In 2013, the Post-Polio Health International (PPHI) organizations estimated that there were six to eight iron lung users in the United States. Now, PPHI executive director Brian Tiburzi says he doesnt know anyone alive still using the negative-pressure ventilators. This fall, I met three polio survivors who depend on iron lungs. They are among the last few, possibly the last three.

In the 1940s and 1950s, hospitals across the country were filled with rows of iron lungs that kept victims alive. Lillard recalls being in rooms packed with metal tubesespecially when there were storms and all the men, women, adults, and children would be moved to the same room so nurses could manually operate the iron lungs if the power went out. The period of time that it took the nurse to get out of the chair, it seemed like forever because you werent breathing, Lillard said. You just laid there and you could feel your heart beating and it was just terrifying. The only noise that you can make when you cant breathe is clicking your tongue. And that whole dark room just sounded like a big room full of chickens just cluck-cluck-clucking. All the nurses were saying, Just a second, youll be breathing in just a second.

Mia Farrow only had to spend eight months in an iron lung when she was nine, before going on to become a famous actress and polio advocate.

Humans are exponentially more than just another animal composed of flesh and bones. We are a living and breathing example of the lively cosmic universe we are synchronized with everything that ever is, was, or is to come is all part of what we call the cosmos!

Like I said before, we are so much more than another species of animals we are a living example of the universe we are a part of. Each of us is made up of energetic frequencies, vibrations, thoughts, and emotions, and our physical bodies are no more than a mere shell to contain us. Birthed from the universe and unto the universe, we will return when it is our time. Each of us is born with certain talents, gifts, and true purpose. We are able to tune into our intuitive senses and communicate with the cosmos as a whole. By achieving a higher consciousness you can alleviate your life of every single worldly stress, issue, or worries. The higher self offers complete content with the life youre living and theres no better feeling than that!

I truly believe that some of us were truly put here to fulfill a purpose of some sort, perhaps we all were. Maybe it is the humans willingness to put in the effort to identify it that determines our true abilities. We all have one thing in common and that is limitless capabilities. We can achieve anything our minds aspire to and that is truly amazing. Its what sets us apart from the rest of the world and to live a happy life you must embrace your divine purpose. You may even feel like youre idling on the verge of reaching your higher self. If you feel this way, youre not alone. A spiritual awakening comes with a multitude of varying symptoms and signs!

KejRaj -- The Native American Holocaust "IndyWatch Feed World"



Source: Era of Light | By KejRaj

The Native American Holocaust


Greetings Friends, it is I KejRaj(KayRy). Today we wish to bring up something that is hardly ever mentioned in America. Something that a great deal was done for to keep it away from public attention.

In this so called great nation of America, not a day goes by where you dont hear people talking about the rights they think they have or do not have, that are being taken away from them by the minute. The talk on the issue of rights comes from all the different ethnicities in America today, from those with different religious beliefs, cultural backgrounds and so on. But we all must learn that simply talking about our rights will not keep those in power from taking away the rest of what we have.

One group of people whos rights and lives were taken, homes burnt, families, millions of adults and children slaughtered. A group of people whos world was destroyed. The few that remain their voices are not heard, they have long been silenced. These people do not matter to anyone in todays America, for if they did, things would be different, better for them and for all the rest of us. These people were the victims of genocide, the victims of the Original Holocaust, the Native American Holocaust, where over one hundred million were killed in America and Canada alone.

The truth about the Natives of this land has been fabricated by those in power since they first arrived to the New World from Europe. A couple points of that fabricated truth are; the Natives being primitive, a savage, warlike people. They were not. They were very aware, peaceful, spiritually connected with each other and mother Earth. I am sure you have heard of the red mans greed stereotype, claiming that the Natives were a greedy people, lust for possessions. Another big lie, a stereotype planted. A quote from Christopher Columbus citing how generous these people were; They are artless and generous with what they have, to such a degree as no one would believe but him who had seen it. Of anything they have, if it be asked for, they never say no, but do rather invite the person to accept it, and show as much love as t...

Justice Department to turn over wide range of documents to Mueller's team "IndyWatch Feed World"

Special counsel Robert Mueller's team investigating whether President Donald Trump sought to obstruct a federal inquiry into connections between his presidential campaign and Russian operatives has now directed the Justice Department to turn over a broad array of documents, ABC News has learned. In particular, Mueller's investigators are keen to obtain emails related to the firing of FBI Director James Comey and the earlier decision of Attorney General Jeff Sessions to recuse himself from the entire matter, according to a source who has not seen the request but was told about it. Issued within the past month, the directive marks the special counsel's first records request to the Justice Department, and it means Mueller is now demanding documents from the department overseeing his investigation. Sessions and Deputy Attorney General Rod Rosenstein played key roles in Comey's removal. And Sessions has since faced withering criticism from Trump over his recusal and Rosenstein's subsequent appointment of Mueller. Mueller's investigators now seek not only communications among Justice Department staffers but also any of their communications with White House officials, the source said. Before this request, investigators asked former senior Justice Department officials for information from their time at the department, ABC News was told. The latest move suggests the special counsel is still digging into, among other matters, whether Trump or any other administration official improperly tried to influence an ongoing investigation.

The Ongoing Agony of the Obama-Trump War on the People of Yemen! "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

We are called to speak for the weak, for the voiceless, for the victims of our nation.

Martin Luther King, Beyond Vietnam

Yemen, the poorest Arab nation on Earth, is the victim of a savage, illegal war waged by the Saudi Arabian monarchy.  Armed to the teeth with the most sophisticated weapons in the world manufactured and supplied by the merchants of death in the United States, the Saudis are providing another grotesque example of what happens when a powerful nation with modern weapons is unrestrained by law and basic human decency.

Flying hundreds of sorties and targeting the civilian infrastructurewater and sanitation plants, the electrical grid, agricultural fields, food storage facilities, hospitals, roads, schools the result is over 20 million people, or 70 percent of the population,  are now dependent on food imports; 7 million of them are facing famine-like conditions and rely completely on food aid to survive. Conservative reports put the number of dead from the Saudis barbaric air war since March 2015 at over 11,000, with the vast majority being innocent civilians. Meanwhile, untold millions have been displaced.

All of the above acts against the Yemenis are war crimes.

But the trauma and devastation of the people doesnt end here.

For the last two weeks, the gangster family running the Saudi state has imposed a murderous air, sea and land blockade preventing vital aid to those millions now dependent on it for their basic survival.

However, the Saudis are not the only ones implicated in this unfolding international crime. Like most of the egregious, international human-rights crimes of the late 20th and 21st centuries, the U.S. state is once again complicit.

The fact is the Obama administration gave the green light to the Saudi war on Yemen. This is a war that could not then or today have been launched and executed without direct support from the U.S. military. The United States provided critical support in the form of intelligence sharing and targeting, air-to-air refueling, logistics support, participation in the naval blockade, and billions of dollars in weapons sales.

That support continues under the Trump administration, including the finalization of the multi-billion-dollar arms deal with the Saudis that was initiated under the Obama administration.

Starvation is rampant, and the innocents are dying but who cares when there is money to be made and geopolitical interests to protect. As the indispensable nation, the nation above all nations, it is of no real concern that starvation is a war crime. Rogue states, especially....

Don't let new blood pressure guidelines raise yours "IndyWatch Feed World"

"Under New Guidelines, Millions More Americans Will Need to Lower Blood Pressure." This is the type of headline that raises my blood pressure to dangerously high levels. For years, doctors were told to aim for a systolic blood pressure of less than 140. (The first of the two blood pressure numbers.) Then, in 2013, recommendations were relaxed to less than 150 for patients age 60 and older. Now they have been tightened, to less than 130 for anyone with at least a 10 percent risk of heart attack or stroke in the next decade. That means that nearly half of all adults in the United States are now considered to have high blood pressure. I bet I'm not the only doctor whose blood pressure jumped upon hearing this news. Disclosure: I'm an advocate of less medicine and living a more healthy life, and I worry we get too focused on numbers. But to make that case I'll need to use some numbers. The new recommendation is principally in response to the results of a large, federally funded study called Sprint that was published in 2015 in The New England Journal of Medicine. Sprint was a high-quality, well-done study. It randomly assigned high blood pressure patients age 50 and older to one of two treatment targets: systolic blood pressure of less than 140 or one of less than 120. The primary finding was that the lower target led to a 25 percent reduction in cardiovascular events - the combined rate of heart attacks, strokes, heart failures and cardiovascular deaths.

The result is that Google, the unit of Alphabet behind Android, has access to data about individuals' locations and their movements that go far beyond a reasonable consumer expectation of privacy. Quartz observed the data collection occur and contacted Google, which confirmed the practice.

The cell tower addresses have been included in information sent to the system Google uses to manage push notifications and messages on Android phones for the past 11 months, according to a Google spokesperson. They were never used or stored, the spokesperson said, and the company is now taking steps to end the practice after being contacted by Quartz. By the end of November, the company said, Android phones will no longer send cell-tower location data to Google, at least as part of this particular service, which consumers cannot disable.

"In January of this year, we began looking into using Cell ID codes as an additional signal to further improve the speed and performance of message delivery," the Google spokesperson said in an email. "However, we never incorporated Cell ID into our network sync system, so that data was immediately discarded, and we updated it to no longer request Cell ID."

Cost of diabetes epidemic reaches $850 billion a year "IndyWatch Feed World"

The number of people living with diabetes has tripled since 2000, pushing the global cost of the disease to $850 billion a year, medical experts said on Tuesday. The vast majority of those affected have type 2 diabetes, which is linked to obesity and lack of exercise, and the epidemic is spreading particularly fast in poorer countries as people adopt Western diets and urban lifestyles. The latest estimates from the International Diabetes Federation mean that one in 11 adults worldwide have the condition, which occurs when the amount of sugar in the blood is too high. The total number of diabetics is now 451 million and is expected to reach 693 million by 2045 if current trends continue.

Review Of Iboris Declaration: I No Longer Belong To Any Political Party. I Am Now A Father To All "IndyWatch Feed Africa"


By Felix Tony Nwaka
LAGOS NOVEMBER 22ND(URHOBOTODAY)-What a powerful declaration! The statement was said to have been made by H.E. Chief James Ibori at Owhelogbo, where he was hosted by the former Delta State SSG, Comrade Ovuozuorie Macaulay. Unfortunately, I couldnt attend the ceremony as I needed to address some compelling family issues.
I truly wish I was there to hear with my own ears. I had to call a few friends who were at the occasion to confirm the story. Behold, they all repeated the statement.
For purposes of clarification, or more appropriately, for those who may be in doubt, Chief James Ibori is (or should I now say was) the undisputed leader of PDP in Delta State.
He was like the soul of the party; the cord that held all the diverse forces in the family together. I can speak authoritatively on this, having served as a local government chairman and his ALGON Chairman at the time, a commissioner, and a caucus member of Delta State PDP.
Anyone who is not in pretension about the political dynamics of Delta PDP knows that Chief Iboris exit from the party is like taking life out of the political family he had nurtured since 1999. I honestly doubt if some people have taken the time to deeply reflect on the implication of his statement.

Another Massive Pedophile Ring Uncovered, With Clear Ties To Pope Benedicts Brother "IndyWatch Feed World"

Pedophilia is a big problem these days, and has been for a while. For decades, and more recently with the Harvey Weinstein case, Corey Feldmans revelations and more, people in positions of great power have been implicated in this type of activity, but it doesnt stop in Hollywood.

Pedophilia and child trafficking has plagued the world of politics as well as the military industrial complex for a long time. The recent Pizzagate scandal involving long time high ranking politician Jon Podesta forced many people to look into it more.

Jeffrey Epstein is another classic example, or the fact that a recent NBC news report claimed that Hillary Clinton, while acting as secretary of state, shut down an investigation into an elite pedophile ring in State Department ranks [involving high ranking officials and an ambassador].

James Grazioplene, a high ranking retired army general who worked in the Pentagon and as the Vice President of DynCorp, is currently facing six rape charges of underaged persons.

70 Years of Broken Promises: The Untold Story of the Partition Plan "IndyWatch Feed War"

In a recent talk before Chatham House think-tank in London, Israeli Prime Minister, Benjamin Netanyahu, approached the issue of a Palestinian state from an intellectual perspective.

Before we think of establishing a Palestinian state, he mused, it is time we reassessed whether the modern model we have of sovereignty, and unfettered sovereignty, is applicable everywhere in the world.

It is not the first time that Netanyahu discredits the idea of a Palestinian state. Despite clear Israeli intentions of jeopardizing any chances for the creation of such a state, the US Administration of Donald Trump is, reportedly, finalizing plans for an ultimate peace deal. The New York Times suggests that the anticipated plan will have to be built around the so-called two-state solution.

But why the wasted effort, while all parties, Americans included know that Israel has no intention of allowing a Palestinian state and the US has no political capital, or desire, to enforce one?

The answer may not lie in the present, but in the past.

A Palestinian Arab state had initially been proposed as a political tactic by the British, to provide a legal cover for the establishment of a Jewish state. It continues to be used as a political tactic, though never with the aim of finding a just solution to the conflict, as is often propagated.

When British Foreign Secretary, Arthur James Balfour, made his promise, in November 1917, to the Zionist movement to grant them a Jewish state in Palestine, the once distant and implausible idea began taking shape. It would have been effortlessly achievable, had the Palestinians not rebelled.

The 1936-1939 Palestinian rebellion revealed an impressive degree of collective political awareness and ability to mobilize, despite British violence.

The British government then dispatched the Peel Commission to Palestine to examine the roots of the violence, hoping to quell the Palestinian revolt.

In July 1937, the commission published its report, which immediately ignited the fury of the native population, who were already aware of the British-Zionist collusion.

The Peel Commission concluded that underlying causes of the disturbances were the desire of the Palestinians for independence, and their hatred and fear of the establishment of the Jewish national home. Based on that view, i...

10 Reasons Why You Should Be Sleeping Naked, According to Science "IndyWatch Feed World"

Studies show only 10% of people sleep in the nude, and this is surprising especially with all the wonderful benefits that come along with sleeping in the buff. If the thoughts of sleeping in the nude are not very appealing to you, here are ten reasons that will have you convinced!

When people hit the hay, everybodys got their own unique sense of style. Some people are happy rocking underwear and a T-shirt, some prefer just the underwear and some prefer just the shirt, (because theyre weird.) As it turns out though, having pajamas of any kind are not the way to the go.

While it may seem provocative it does not always have to pertain to sex related things. It is a way to boost other parts of our lives as well, it promotes a healthy mind and a healthy body! When you sleep naked you are going to be evolving in skin to skin contact (if you have a partner.) This is known to release more oxytocin and can lower blood pressure, reduce stress levels, and fight off depression.

When we are sleeping our bodies also drop temperatures. Sleeping naked helps to regulate this temperature and helps to maintain our cortisol levels. You will also release hormones like melatonin that will promote skin health. You will no longer be forced to deal with the effects of an overheating body. This will give you a much better nights sleep. No more restlessness or sleepless nights.

If you happen to be a man then you will be able to maintain a much better testicular health by sleeping naked. It will improve the quality of your sperm and keep those little swimmers swimming. If you are woman it will help you to avoid a yeast infection as well. It may feel a bit strange at first but after just a few short nights you will be ready to say goodbye to your pajamas for good.

Give sleeping in your birthday suit a try. It might be one of the best things you ever do for yourself. Here are 10 Reasons why you should be sleeping naked every night!

Better Relationships

People who sleep naked tend to have better relationships. Skin to skin contact releases oxytocin, the bonding hormone. Those pesky pajamas can get in the way of skin to skin contact, and we need oxytocin it elevates happiness, lowers stress and reduces blood pressure.

Reduced Risk of Yeast Infections

Sleeping naked reduces your risk of yeast infections. It allows your vaginal area to have a chance to air out; yeast grows in warm and moist conditions. When it is cool and dry, the growth is prevented.

Overall Health

You will have a healthier body wearing clothes at night keeps your body warmer, which prevents the growth hormone from being released. The growth hormone repairs your body!

Reanimating Boney the Robot Dog "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

[Divconstructors] cashed in after Halloween and picked up a skeleton dog prop from the Home Depot, for the simple and logical purpose of turning it into a robot.

The first step was to cut apart the various body parts, followed by adding bearings to the joints and bolting in a metal chassis fabricated from 1/8 aluminum stock. This is all pretty standard stuff in the Dr. Frankenstein biz. For electronics he uses a Mega with a bark-emitting MP3 shield on top of it. Separately, a separate servo control board manages the dozenish servos not to mention the tail-wagging stepper.

[Divconstructors] actually bought two skeletons, one to be his protoype and the other to be the nice-looking build. However, we at Hackaday feel like he might have missed an opportunity: As any necromancer can tell you, a freakish combination of two skeletons beats out two normal skeletons any night of the week. Also, two words for you to consider: cyberdog ransomeware.

The '2017 UN Peacekeeping Defence Ministerial Conference' is taking place in Vancouver from November 15 to 17. Many details were missing from Trudeau's remarks. These reflect the government's wariness over intervening into places where volatile military and humanitarian conditions prevail, particularly in Africa. Military missteps or fumbles could easily derail the sunny public relations bubble which surrounds the government's proclaimed 'peacekeeping' goals and on which Canada's (small-l) liberal imperialists stake their reputations.
