Open Source OLED Nametag is Full of Features "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Ever wanted a sweet OLED nametag with fancy features like daylight readability, automatic brightness adjustment, GIF animation support, all-day runtime, easy web interface, and more? [TobleMiner]s OLED Nametag is the project you want to keep an eye on in that case.

Its still an early prototype, but the feature list looks great and works with a variety of OLED modules that are easily available. The enclosure can be 3D printed, and while there is very little spare room inside the housing, [TobleMiner] has clearly made the most of all available space. Some PCB fab houses offer component placement these days, and the board is designed with exactly that in mind.

Weve seen a batteryless E-paper display make a serviceable nametag in the past, and while those offer high contrast and wide viewing angles, they lack the sort of features this project is bursting at the seams with. Affordable access to good components...

Sierra Club Workers Challenge Leaderships Greenwashing Apartheid Tours "IndyWatch Feed World"

In June, members of the Sierra Club unit of the Progressive Workers Union (PWU) passed a resolution pledging solidarity with the Palestinian people as the environmental organization pushes forward with its planned trips to Israel.

The workers resolution puts its words into action by ensuring union funds arent investing in Israels settler enterprise and contributing to the oppression of Palestinians. It also calls for establishing a Palestine solidarity committee to foster relationships with Palestinian-led organizations and help educate members on the connections between Palestine and Indigenous struggles in the U.S.

Our members overwhelmingly voted to recognize that colonialism is part of the climate crisis here and abroad, making it clear that we have the power to put our values into practice, even when our employers dont, Zach Kopkin, Sierra Club employee, Progressive Workers Union member, and spokesperson for the PWU Palestine Solidarity Group, said in a statement.

According to a press release from the Adalah Justice Project, a Palestinian-led advocacy group based in the U.S., This resolution is a clear message from Sierra Club workers to Sierra Club leadership that continuing nature trips to an apartheid statedespite being asked by Palestinians to respect their struggle for justice and canceldoes not align with a true vision of environmental justice.

It's Sewage, Not Fertilizer Fueling Nitrogen Surge in Florida's Indian River Lagoon "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

It's sewage, not fertilizer fueling nitrogen surge in Florida's Indian River Lagoon:

From recurring harmful algal bloomsincluding brown tidesto catastrophic seagrass losses, fish kills and unusual marine mammal deathsincluding the threatened Florida manateethe Indian River Lagoon is environmentally distressed. For decades, water managers, policy makers and environmental activists have implicated fertilizer use as the primary contributing source responsible for about 71 percent of these impairments in the lagoon.

Consequently, fertilizer restrictions have been implemented in counties and municipalities along the 156-mile-long Indian River Lagoon on Florida's Atlantic coast to reduce nutrient inputs from urban and agricultural land uses to achieve total maximum daily loads for the lagoon. Excess nutrient inputs, particularly nitrogen, often result in increased harmful algal blooms, seagrass die-offs and fish kills. The hope was that water quality would improve by reducing the nitrogen load.

While these restrictions were well-intended, a new study by Florida Atlantic University's Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute reveals fertilizer use is not the root cause of these environmental problems in the Indian River Lagoon. It's sewage.

[...] To assess the effectiveness of these fertilizer bans, researchers collected seawater and macroalgal samples at 20 sites "pre" and about five-years "post" bans. They tested by comparing dissolved seawater nutrient concentrations and tissue nutrient and isotope data of brown tides and macroalgae. Gathering evidence from stable nitrogen isotope values enabled researchers to discriminate between sewage, rainfall and fertilizer, providing a unique "fingerprint" of the samples they collected.

"Our comparative pre- versus post-ban nutrient data indicate that the wet season fertilizer blackouts were not as effective as hoped," said Brian Lapointe, Ph.D., senior author and a research professor at FAU Harbor Branch. "Our findings also suggest that the increasing concentrations of dissolved inorganic nitrogen and phosphorus observed in some segments of the lagoon following five years of fertilizer bans would support the worsening trend of algal blooms."

US presses Ukraine for decisive breakthrough despite stubborn Russian defences "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Ahmed Adel | July 20, 2023

US officials are concerned that Ukraine is not making enough progress in its much-heralded counteroffensive, The Washington Post reported on July 18, citing unnamed sources. According to the media outlet, the US is urging Kiev to commit to a decisive breakthrough as Ukrainian commanders are, supposedly, yet to employ the full-scale offensive tactics Western instructors taught them.

A US official explained on condition of anonymity to the newspaper that the West had trained Ukrainian forces in integrated offensive manoeuvres and provided them with mine clearance equipment. The source stressed that it was critical for Kievs troops to apply these capabilities to break through Russian defences quickly.

Western officials have reportedly criticised Ukraines armed forces for taking an attrition-based approach by firing artillery and missiles at command, transport, and logistics locations at the rear of Russian positions rather than using Western-style combined arms that involve large-scale attacks with tanks, armoured vehicles, infantry, artillery, and the air force.

Analysts at the Institute for the Study of War explained that Ukrainian commanders chose to adopt more discreet advances, involving groups of 15 to 50 soldiers to preserve the military contingent.

Russian defensive operations in southern Ukraine follow a pattern in which one echelon of Russian forces slows and degrades attacking Ukrainian forces until a second echelon counterattacks from prepared defensive positions to roll back the Ukrainian advances, the journal wrote.

In this way, Ukrainian forces are being methodically neutralised by the Russian military as they have turned the battlefield into a meatgrinder.

This situation will not improve for Ukraine, especially following the acknowledgment by the head of the US Joint Chiefs of Staff that Kiev will have a long, difficult, and bloody fight against Russian forces, even if he did go on to sell an illusion that Ukraine can still win the war and that the offensive had not failed.

It is far from a failure I think that its way too early to make that kind of call, US General Mark Milley said on July 18. I think theres a lot of fighting left to go and Ill stay with what we said before: This is going to be long. Its going [to] be hard. Its going to be bloody.

Although he sold Kiev, once again, an illusion, he did have to begrudgingly acknowledge that it would take years and billions of dollars for the Ukrainian Air Force to gain parity with their Russian competitors.

Ten F-16s are $2 billion. So, the Russians have hundreds of fourth and fifth-generation airframes. If they [the Ukrainians] are going to try to match the Russians, one f......

SCOTUS Gins Up Standing, Other Doctrines, to Get Where It Wants to Go "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

As it wrapped up a term that predictably pushed America still further to the right, the US Supreme Court gave a quick nod to its conservative stance on standing, a legal term regarding who has the ability to sue or intervene in a given case and a procedural hurdle that has proven of great utility to courts in batting away cases theyd rather not hear or decide on the merits.


In the student debt forgiveness litigation, there were two sets of plaintiffs challenging the law. In Department of Education v. Brown the challengers were saying they were harmed because one person received no forgiveness and another was eligible for only half the forgiveness offered. But striking down the whole debt forgiveness plan wouldnt have benefited either litigant, so their claim to standing before the court was questionable and the court in fact found they lacked standing.  


In the second case challenging debt relief, Biden v. Nebraska, six states, led by Nebraska, challenged the plan because of loss of tax revenue. The standing issue jumps out in this case: If a state can challenge a law for how it affects the states tax revenue, it will open almost every federal law to challenge by the states. The standing doctrine exists, in large part, to keep the court doors closed to such a torrent of litigation by a host of plaintiffs at significant remove from the direct impact of a law, regulation, or other action.


Of course, as we will see, the converse is true on occasion: When a court wants to take and decide on a case in the case of an activist court, often with the goal of making law and advancing a political agenda it might have to twist itself in knots to find standing where the claim for.....


La crisis del agua en Uruguay y el rol de gobiernos, empresas y el extractivismo "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

Foto: Diego Izquierdo / Tlam

Montevideo est en crisis hdrica. Mientras el Gobierno culpa al clima, a la falta de obras en gestiones anteriores y propone la compra de agua embotellada, desde sectores socioambientales explican que se trata de una mala planificacin, cuestionados negocios con sectores privados y del modelo extractivo de monocultivos y pasteras. No es sequa, es saqueo, afirman.

Uruguay lleva 70 das sin agua potable. El lquido que sale de las canillas tiene altos ndices de sodio y de cloruros, adems de trihalometanos (bromuros y cloroformos que surgen cuando se aplica el cloro para potabilizar agua con mucha materia orgnica). Los trihalometanos tienen efectos potencialmente cancergenos. El gobierno de Luis Lacalle Pou demor 40 das en declarar la emergencia hdrica y la solucin que propone es la compra de agua embotellada. No es sequa, es saqueo, afirman las organizaciones socioambientales para explicar la crisis del agua en Uruguay.

Unas 1.700.000 personas de Uruguay deben comprar agua envasada a las dos empresas que tienen el monopolio del embotellamiento: Danone (de Francia) y Agua Viva (de Chile). El agua que venden es de todas y de todos, la extraen sin pagar un peso en impuestos y la venden a precios muy altos, cuestiona  Mara Selva Ortz, de la organizacin Redes-Amigos de la Tierra Uruguay.

El panorama es desalentador: No tenemos en el horizonte una salida de esta situacin, porque tiene que llover bastante para que podamos cambiar la calidad del agua y dejar de tomar agua del Ro de la Plata. Los informes del Instituto Nacional de Meteorologa y de la Universidad de la Repblica proyectan lluvias para octubre o noviembre. Y la respuesta del Gobierno es invitar a la poblacin a rezar para que llueva y girar recursos a los sectores populares que slo alcanzan para adquirir dos litros de agua por da para tomar y cocinar.

Agotadas las reservas de agua dulce que abastecen a la zona metropolitana de Montevideo, desde Redes-Amigos de la Tierra proponen que se siga abasteciendo a la poblacin con el agua disponible para asegurar el saneamiento. Pero, adems, insisten en que se tiene que asegurar a la poblacin agua potable para consumo humano, para beber y para cocinar. Asegurar eso no es a travs del mercado, como lo est haciendo el gobierno, afirma Ortiz. En los hechos, la solucin del presidente Lacalle Pou es transferir dinero a los sectores populares para que puedan comprar dos litros de agua por da para tomar y cocinar. La propuesta de las organizaciones es por ejemplo transportar agua con camiones cisternas desde otros puntos del p...


SMT Proves Worthwhile Option For 128-Core AMD EPYC "Bergamo" CPUs "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

While the AMD EPYC 9754 "Bergamo" processor is impressive for having 128 physical Zen 4C cores, it also has Simultaneous Multi-Threading (SMT) to provide for 256 threads per socket. Meanwhile with Ampere Altra Max and AmpereOne there is no SMT and it's likely Intel's upcoming Sierra Forest will also lack SMT (Hyper Threading) given it's an E-core-only design. But that led to my curiosity over the SMT impact for Bergamo on power and performance when leveraging SMT for the 128-core flagship EPYC 9754. Today's Bergamo benchmarking is looking at SMT on and off for both 1P and 2P server configurations.

Two-Thirds of Americans Dont Support Supply of Cluster Munitions to Ukraine Poll "IndyWatch Feed War"

Sputnik 20.07.2023

WASHINGTON Two-thirds of Americans do not support sending cluster munitions to Ukraine, according to a joint poll conducted by The Economist and YouGov.

According to the survey, 42% of respondents oppose such a move, while only 33% support it. In addition, about half of respondents would like the United States to either maintain the same level of assistance to Kiev (29%) or increase it (23%). On the other hand, one-third of respondents said that the level of assistance to Ukraine should be reduced.

The poll found that Americans are more skeptical than in the past about the good idea of potential NATO membership for Ukraine; 42% of respondents supported such a prospect, which is 10% less than in April.

The survey was conducted on July 15-18 among a random sample of 1,500 US adults using interview-based methods, with a margin of error not exceeding 3 percentage points.

Earlier in July, Washington unveiled a new military assistance package for Ukraine that includes cluster munitions, claiming they will provide useful battlefield capabilities.

Yet these weapons are banned by the Convention on Cluster Munitions, which has been ratified by 123 countries, excluding the US and Ukraine. Russian officials stressed that US actually admitted committing a war crime by supplying Kiev with this type of ammo.


No Army, No Problem: Icelands Aid To Ukraine "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Stijn Mitzer and Joost Oliemans
Iceland, unique among NATO member states, maintains no standing military of its own. Throughout the Cold War, the country was host to several debates about whether or not to withdraw from NATO. During the 1970s, Iceland even threatened to leave the alliance as a result of the Second and Third Cod Wars with the UK. But despite its pacifist nature and a prime minister that is known for her opposition to Iceland's NATO membership, the island nation has contributed peacekeepers to several NATO-led missions including in Iraq and Afghanistan and is host to a NATO air base. [1] Possessing no military equipment of its own, Iceland has for the most part concentrated its efforts on providing humanitarian aid to Ukraine. Examples of military aid include the chartering of cargo aircraft to transport military equipment from NATO member states to Ukraine and the provision of winter gear, EOD equipment and a field hospital. Iceland's contributions in military aid amount to approximately 2.7bn ISK (18.3 million euros). [2] Iceland's economic and humanitarian aid contributions to Ukraine have so far amounted to 3,1bn ISK (21 million euros). [2]

The following list attempts to keep track of military and humanitarian aid given to Ukraine by the Government of Iceland during the Russian invasion of Ukraine. The entries below are sorted by category. Private and corporate donations are not included in this list. This list will be updated as further support is declared.

Roads: primary vectors of deforestation in the Pan Amazon "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

It all starts with a road. In Brazil, the federal government commissioned the construction of mule trails and telegraph lines to link their coastal cities with long-established settlements on remote Amazonian tributaries. In the Andes, communication between the highlands and the lowlands has occurred over millennia via trails that traverse the foothills using routes dictated by topography. Most of these early roads had little impact on settlement and were associated with only a limited amount of deforestation, but most modern highways trace these routes into the wilderness. Deforestation occurs when a government sends a clear signal that it is investing in a major trunk highway; objectives vary, but have included strategies to integrate an isolated population centre, open a region to settlement and create access to a valuable mineral asset. Settlers move into a region only when there is a commitment to keeping the road accessible on a permanent basis. Deforestation by settlers in an Embera Indigenous forest reserve. Image by Rhett A. Butler. There have been exceptions, particularly in Brazil in the 1980s, when the promise of future pavement did not materialize, but in general people will invest time and money in clearing the forest only when they believe they can transport their production to market. The examples are abundant and self-evident. All but six of the fifty human-modified landscapes defined in Chapter 1 are organized around a major trunk highway.

NDLEA Dedicates N1bn Drug Set Ablaze At Ogwashi-Uku  To Minor Killed By Stray Bullet "IndyWatch Feed Africa"


LAGOS JULY 20TH (URHOBOTODAY)-The National Drug Law Enforcement Agency (NDLEA) has destroyed seized illicit drugs estimated at over N1 billion in Delta State.

Daily Trust reports that the drugs, weighing 5,723.310kg, were burnt at Ogwashi-Uku in Aniocha South Local Government Area of the state.

The chairman/chief executive officer of the agency, Major Gen. Buba Marwa (rtd), said the public destruction of the drugs was dedicated to the late Ivan Omhonria, the two-year-old minor who was killed by a stray bullet last Thursday in the Okpanam area of Delta State where operatives of NDLEA were chasing drug barons.

I wish to say that the public destruction of seized drugs in Delta State is dedicated to the minor who paid the supreme price with his life in the struggle towards making Delta State safe and secure through drug control activities.

We expressed distaste and displeasure over the tragic incident. Our thoughts and prayers are with the family of the hero of the drug war, he said.

Marwa, represented by the commander in charge of Zone M, Fidelis Kokodia, said the destruction of the drugs was sequel to an order of the Federal High Court, Asaba and Warri divisions.

He said the courts mandated the agency to publicly destroy illicit drugs exhibited in respect of cases that had been concluded from 2018 to 2022.

Earlier, the Delta State Commander of the agency, Mr John Tunde, citing the 2018 UNODC brief survey report, regretted that Delta ranked first in drug abuse and illicit trafficking in the entire South South.

He described the discovery of the largest and most sophisticated clandestine laboratory for the production of methamphetamine in Asaba, Delta State, as worrisome.

He listed the destroyed drugs to include cannabis sativa 5.614 tons; cocaine 416.77g; methamphetamine 105.12g; heroin 98.2g; tramadol 20.264g; swinol/Rohypnol 1.867kg; diazepam 8.355kg; and pentazocine 1.2kg.

He appealed to the state government to assist the command in the area of logistics to enable it to carry out its mandate more effectively.

Russia protects Crimean civilians by attacking ports in Odessa "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Lucas Leiroz | July 20, 2023

In the last few days, the armed forces of the Russian Federation have launched a series of massive attacks against the Ukrainian ports in Odessa, destroying several strategic targets. Western media are reporting the strikes as terrorism and trying to link them to the fact that Moscow recently suspended its participation in the Black Sea Grain Deal. However, these narratives are biased and ignore the fact that Kiev maintains several arms depots in the ports.

Russian attacks began on 18 July, hitting several Ukrainian port facilities in the Odessa region overnight. Among the targets hit were depots of weapons, ammunition and fuel used to supply Ukrainian troops and carry out terrorist attacks against Russian territory. The next day, a new wave of attacks was carried out. Russian forces have used cruise missiles launched from their Black Sea positions. Moscows officials said all targets were appropriately neutralized with high precision strikes. New raids are expected for the coming days.

Among the military objectives of this operation is the destruction of several maritime drone bases that were detected by Russian intelligence in the ports of Odessa. As well known, the recent attack on the Crimean Bridge, which resulted in the death of a couple and the injury of their orphaned daughter, was carried out using maritime drones. Evidence suggests that the vehicles used came from the ports of Odessa, which explains the reasons why Russia decided to launch several missiles at enemy naval facilities. Russian authorities had promised retaliation for the attack on the Bridge.

In addition to the retaliation for the incident on the Bridge, it must be remembered that there were lately many other drone incursions against Crimea. For example, on July 18 dozens of Ukrainian drones were neutralized by Russian forces with artillery and electronic warfare measures, avoiding the death of numerous civilians. Furthermore, on the 20th, Crimean government confirmed that a teenage girl died during a drone strike in the morning, which certainly will be retaliated soon.

Another important point is that these Ukrainian ports were being used by the enemy side to receive weapons from abroad and store them among grains. Intelligence data shows that Western weaponry was arriving in Ode......


Flash floods hit Zagreb, Croatia "IndyWatch Feed World"

Two people died, dozens more were injured and significant damage was caused when a massive storm hit Zagreb on Wednesday afternoon, July 19. Both victims were hit by falling trees. Emergency services were still restoring power to streets and buildings the following morning. Rivers of rainwater swept down the city's main street of Ilica and public transport was shut down on certain routes. There was further destruction across the region, with fatalities reported in Slovenia and Bosnia, before the storm made its way towards Serbia.

Kentucky's governor declared a state of emergency Wednesday after historic rainfall inundated parts of the state and forecasters said additional storms on "extremely saturated ground" overnight raised fresh flooding concerns. The big picture: Gov. Andy Beshear urged people to "pray for Mayfield and areas of Western Kentucky impacted by significant flooding from last night's storms" as officials responded to the damage. The city in Graves County is still recovering from a December 2021 tornado that left 57 people dead, the Washington Post notes.


Isaac Herzogs Visit to Congress: A Showcase of Apartheid Apologetics "IndyWatch Feed World"

As the anticipation built for Israeli president Yitzhak Hertzogs (Isaac Herzog) visit to Washington, DC insiders scrambled to hide the fact that Israel is a racist state. At first, the center of the crisis was the incomprehensible fact that someone had told the truth about Israel. Yet House Representative Pramila Jayapal, a progressive democrat, would later apologize for calling Israel what it is, a racist state.

Her remarks at an event in Chicago where she called Israel a racist state were seen to be so controversial that House Democratic Leader Hakeem Jeffries weighed in. He and three top leadership aides quickly took to the media, proclaiming, Israel is not a racist state. According to Reuters, the most criticism they could muster was, There are individual members of the current Israeli governing coalition with whom we strongly disagree.


Absolute hysteria

Representative Jayapil told the truth and has irrefutable evidence of it, so why did she back down? The 2022 Amnesty report on Apartheid in Palestine demonstrates beyond any doubt that what the congresswoman said is true. However, the panic her truthtelling sparked was so powerful that she apologized for telling it rather than holding up the report as evidence of her proclamation. Then, leader Jeffries ran out to make sure everyone knew it wasnt him, that he never said or even thought that Israel is a racist state she did it was all that was missing from his statement.


His apologia harkened back to foregone days when people would rush to deny that the world is round or that the earth revolves around the sun for fear of being excommunicated or burned at the stake. An atmosphere where telling the truth is a dangerous prospect.

Then things got worse. As the visit by the head of the apartheid state approached, more and more members of Congress announced they would boycott the joint session. This would be a problem in any circumstance, but what made it worse was that they were all people of color, which didnt stop Israels apologists from calling them racist. Then in a state of fury, the House decided to demonstrate its love of apartheid Israel by passing a resolution stating that Israel is not a racist or an apartheid state.

One can only imagine the relief millions of Palestinians felt when they learned of this resolution. Here they were for decades, thinking they were being abused, targeted, murdered, dispossessed, subjected to ethnic clean...


Pita Touches the Third Rail of Thai Politics "IndyWatch Feed War"

If you touch it, you die.

Thats the supposed result for politicians who confront highly contentious issues. Likened to grasping the third rail, the one that provides the electricity that powers a train or subway, the result is political suicideat least that was the metaphor attributed to U.S. House Speaker Thomas Tip ONeill when discussing the topic of Social Security in the early 1980s, as any politician attempting to reform the largest social safety net for retired American workers would later cost them their political careers at the ballot box.

Pita Limjaroenrat, the prime ministerial candidate of the progressive Move Forward Party, which upset Thailands conservative military-backed parties in the May 14 election, also touched on a sensitive national issue: lse-majest. In the end it was responsible in part in ending his chances at becoming prime minister, as Thailands Constitutional Court suspended his duties as a member of Parliament, and was blocked from a second parliamentary vote. Two lingering questions remain after a month of post-election drama: whether pushing for Article 112 reform so soon was worth it, and whether Move Forward had the foresight to predict this outcome.

Known in Thailand as Article 112 of the Criminal Code, lse-majest (royal insult) dates back to 1908 and warns that anyone who defames, insults or threatens the king, the queen, the heir-apparent or the regent is punishable by up to 13 years in prison. The vaguely worded law provides a wide interpretation as to what constitutes an insult, giving those who weaponize it great flexibility. With anyone being able to file a complaint and the police mandated to investigate claims, Article 112 is not only worrisome for Thais, but has become an issue of international concern. Many have fallen victim, even children, as the military government of Prayut Chan-ocha sought to crack down on dissent. In 2020, he vowed in 2020 to use all laws, all articles, to take action against protesters who broke the law, referring then to protesters who defied police use of water cannons and tear gas.

Move Forward first signaled it would call for the repeal of Article 112 in January 2021, taking up a popular challenge from anti-coup and pro-reform protests that began in 2020, and a day after four prominent protest le...

Barbenheimer will be an improvement over the latest hot conspiracy theory fraud "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

My wife actually asked me if we could see the Barbie movie, which is opening at our local theater this weekend. Of course we can! I was looking forward to it already. It looks to be trippy and fun.

As the media have frequently mentioned lately, because they do love a contrast, the Oppenheimer movie also opens this weekend (but not at our theater.) Cool, Id like to see that one, too, even more than Barbie. Theyre different movies, there isnt any real conflict between them. Heres an article that says Barbie and Oppenheimer tell the same terrifying story.

The underlying premise of all the jokes that these films come out on the same day but are about hilariously different subjects and have wildly different tones is misguided. The two movies actually have a fundamental, and disturbing, common ground. J. Robert Oppenheimer, the man behind our nuclear age, and Barbie a toy that takes over three cups of oil to produce before it lingers in landfills around the world both tell the story of the dawn of our imperiled era.

Barbie and Oppenheimer each offer a window into the creation of the Anthropocene, the suggested term for our present geological epoch, in which human beings have become the most significant influence on the natural environment at a planetary scale.

Thats an interesting connection: how do we define the anthropocene, by all the piles of plastic or the global dusting of radioactive isotopes?

Either works for me, they all coexist in a narrow slice of time, only a century long. On a geological scale, either one provides a sharp boundary.

Like I said, Id like to see both movies. Unfortunately, Oppenheimer isnt booked locally in the near future. Instead, were getting served Sound of Freedom after Barbie, a conspiracy-theory fueled abomination of a movie (see Rebecca Watson for why its bad). I predict itll clean up at the box office in our little corner of Red America.

Misinformation: The Media is Already Turning Over 1,000 Additional Microsoft Layoffs Into Just 1,000 "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The original (scoop, leak):

Report on Microsoft layoffs: more than 1000

Misleading follow-ups below. OVER 1,000 layoffs noted above in the seminal report. Almost every site we saw so far says 1,000, even though the original said MORE (that can also be 2,000). Examples from hours ago:

Report on Microsoft layoffs: only 1000

Report on Microsoft layoffs: 1000 layoffs

Report on Microsoft layoffs: 1000 a distortion

Summary: Reporters keep on repeating (parroting) the "10,000" fictional figure from Microsoft (it was vastly more than that; maybe 20,000 or more were impacted by the layoffs); the reporting now continues with a subtle distortion wherein over 1,000 i.e. no upper bound, just lower bound simply becomes (exactly) 1,000


Russia-Ukraine war: Wheat prices rocket following collapse of Black Sea grain deal "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Russia-Ukraine war: Wheat prices rocket following collapse of Black Sea grain deal

Spiralling prices could have a devastating impact on the Middle East, a region heavily reliant on Ukraine for wheat imports
MEE staff Thu, 07/20/2023 - 13:31
A farmer watches as a combine loads grain onto a truck during a wheat harvest near Kyiv, 18 July 2023 (AFP)

Wheat prices have soared as the global economy begins to feel the impact of Russia's withdrawal from the Ukraine grain deal on Monday.

Prices on the European stock exchange jumped by 8.2 percent on Wednesday from the previous day, reaching 253.75 ($284) per tonne, while corn prices rose by 5.4 percent.

Meanwhile, US wheat futures jumped 8.5 percent, marking the highest daily rise since just after the Russian invasion of Ukraine in 2022.

On Monday, Russia said it had officially notified Turkey, Ukraine, and the UN that it was against extending the Black Sea grain export deal.

The move is likely to have a deeply negative impact on the Middle East and North Africa, which is heavily reliant on Ukraine for wheat.

Prior to the war, Egypt had relied on Russia and Ukraine for 80 percent of its wheat.

The WHO is a real and present danger "IndyWatch Feed World"

Our governments intend to transfer decisions over our health, families, and societal freedoms to the Director General of the World Health Organization (WHO), whenever he or she declares it necessary. The success of this transfer of power depends on public ignorance of its implications, and of the nature of the WHO itself and its recent pandemic policy reversals. When the public understands, then its leaders are more likely to act in their interests rather than against them. In late 2019, the WHO issued new recommendations for pandemic influenza. Influenza spreads by the same mechanism as Covid-19 (aerosols), with a similar mortality in most people. The WHO stated that it is "not recommended in any circumstances" to undertake contact tracing, quarantine of exposed individuals, entry and exit screening, and border closures. They envisioned that in a severe pandemic it may be necessary to close businesses for up to seven to ten days. The WHO cautioned against strict measures because...

Link "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I know that guy! Thats Marc Tessier-Lavigne! Hes about my age, and we shared similar interests we were both interested in axon guidance, and I followed his work avidly some years ago. He was publishing about netrins, signaling molecules that affect the trajectory of growing neurons, while I was studying growing neurons in grasshopper embryos. I met him several times, I attended talks he gave at various meetings, it was hard to avoid Tessier-Lavigne.

Our careers followed very different paths, though. I ended up teaching at a small liberal arts college, while he got a position at UCSF, and then was CSO at Genentech, and then was president of Rockefeller University, was on the boards of various pharmaceutical companies, and finally was president of Stanford University. He was a major go-getter, running gigantic factory-style labs, getting regularly published in Science and Nature and Cell. It was a life that looked horrible to me, just as my life of obscurity and teaching would have looked horrible to him, if ever he had deigned to notice me.

Why would I have disliked the prestigious path he took in science? Because he turned himself into a manager, a guy who was disconnected from the science that was being done in his massively well-funded labs. Ick. Id rather play at the bench and help students get enthusiastic about doing science.

I may have chosen wisely, because now Tessier-Lavigne has been compelled to resign as an investigation found evidence of fraud in his work. Yikes. This is bad.

The Board of Trustees inquiry stopped short of accusing Tessier-Lavigne who has been Stanfords president since 2016 of fraud, saying theres no evidence he personally engaged in research misconduct.

However, it was concluded that five papers on which Tessier-Lavigne was a principal author included work from some members of labs overseen by Dr. Tessier-Lavigne who had either engaged in inappropriate manipulation of research data or engaged in deficient scientific practices, resulting in significant flaws in those papers.

When the issues emerged, Tessier-Lavigne took insufficient steps to correct mistakes in the scientific record, the boards report said.

This is what happens when you become an over-worked administrator with your fingers in too many pies. That does not excuse him he has his name on so many papers, and getting a...


Security Operatives Neutralise Three IPOB Members, Recovers Weapons In Delta "IndyWatch Feed Africa"


LAGOS JULY 20TH (URHOBOTODAY)-Three suspected members of the proscribed Indigenous People of Biafra (IPOB) have been killed during a gun battle at Obodogwugwu area of Okpanam community, Oshimili North Local Government Area of the state.

According to the State Police Public Relations Officer, DSP Bright Edafe, A joint security team composed of the army, the Department of State Services (DSS) and the police responded to a distressed call that the suspected IPOB elements had invaded the area, shooting sporadically.

The police spokesman said: They came out and we heard they were shooting in the air, so we mobilized to the place led by the Divisional Police Officer.

We were able to neutralize three of them and recovered one AK-47 riffle and one pump action.

The operation started in the night but they came out in the morning and we went after them immediately.

The operation lasted for hours because they were running and we were going after them and neutralised three of them, he stated.

Russia voices concerns over Poland bolstering troops on Belarus border "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Kremlin said on Thursday that Poland's decision to bolster its forces along its border with Belarus in response to the presence of Russian Wagner mercenary fighters was "a cause for concern". Poland, a member of the Western NATO military alliance, began moving over 1,000 troops, along with military hardware, to the east this month. Warsaw had previously announced it was also sending 500 police to shore up security on the border to cope with rising numbers of migrants crossing, as well as the prospect of a Wagner presence. The Belarusian defence ministry said on Thursday that Wagner mercenaries had started to train Belarusian special forces at a military range just a few miles from the border with Poland.

She says that after a full body MRI revealed the extent of the disease, the gay couple who were paying her to carry their child used legal threats to pressure her into terminating the pregnancy.


Wheat prices soar after West fails pledge on Black Sea grain deal and Russia pulls out "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

After Russia pulled out of the Black Sea grain deal, which allowed the safe passage for Ukrainian grain exports, global wheat prices have exponentially shot up. On Wednesday, wheat prices on the European stock exchange soared by nearly nine per cent from the previous day to $284 per tonne. US wheat futures saw a jump of 8.5 per cent - the highest daily rise since the war broke out in February last year. Similarly, corn prices were up five to four per cent. The immediate effect of the suspension is that millions of tonnes of wheat that was bound for Africa and West Asia has been stranded. While the wheat remains stuck, the Russian side has started "deliberately targeting the grain deal infrastructure", according to Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky. Comment: No, Russia targeting Ukrainian infrastructure critical to its Nazi-aligned, Western backed military, and this is actually in response to the terror attack on the bridge in Crimea that killed a mother and father, whose...

I double-dog dare you to pronounce that name "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

New movie marketers decided to use the Greek alphabet in their poster, and caused my brain to stutter.

There is no C in the Greek alphabet; they should have substituted a , kappa. No L, but there is a lambda, . We get a sigma instead of an e, which is pronounced like an s. Then an omicron, so that part is OK. P is rho, it is pronounced like an r. Greek has a perfectly good, familiar letter A, alpha, but they put a delta, , in there. Thats a d. Then a tau, , which is a fine T, and an R character which doesnt exist and should be a . Then it ends with another d.

I think that whole gemisch is pronounced ??sordt?d, somehow, and I now have no confidence in the historicity of whatever this movie is.

I wonder if they plan to distribute this movie in Greece with that poster?

Israel: Former intelligence chief says Netanyahus judicial overhaul could cause civil war

Former Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman has called on Netanyahu to halt the Israeli governments planned judicial overhaul

Nadav Argaman (right) has warned Netanyahu over the planned judicial overhaul (AFP)

A former intelligence chief called for a halt to the Israeli governments planned judicial overhaul on Thursday, arguing that Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu was not "democratically elected to destroy Israeli democracy".

Speaking on Israeli Army Radio, former Shin Bet chief Nadav Argaman said that the judicial overhaul could result in a civil war. 

Hes not committed to the state of Israel like when I knew him; I think today hes committed to an impossible coalition, he said. 

Argaman also expressed fear about the future of Israel.

His comments came soon after the Knesset's Justice Committee paved the way for two votes on Monday on removing the so-called "reasonableness standard".

The reasonableness standard is used to pass judicial reviews on decisions made by the government, ministries, and public officials.

It also allows judges to designate government decisions as unreasonable if they deem them irrational or biased. 

Critics have argued that the reasonableness standard will have an impact on corruption trials and dismissals in the government, as well as preventing Israelis from being subject to arbitrary decrees. 



Citizens Initiative Save Sinjajevina Successfully Organizes Educational-Recreational Camp Everyone to Sinjajevina "IndyWatch Feed War"

By Milan Sekulovic, Save Sinjajevina, July 20, 2023

Defending Sinjajevina with Knowledge and Beauty

From July 12th to 16th, a successful educational-recreational camp under the slogan Everyone to Sinjajevina was held on the Sinjajevina mountain. This significant event was organized by the citizens initiative Save Sinjajevina and gathered numerous participants from different parts of Montenegro and the region at the locations of Savina Voda and Margita.

The camp commenced on July 12th with the traditional katun assembly at Savina Voda, during which representatives of the citizens initiative Save Sinjajevina, President Milan Sekulovi, Vice President Mileva Gara Jovanovi, and Vice President of the Parliament Stanija Cana Braunovi, emphasized the importance of preserving the Sinjajevina mountain as a clean and undisturbed area without military activities. They stressed that Sinjajevina should remain a place where people can live freely and engage in agriculture, and that any form of military activity is not welcome and will never be allowed.

After the assembly, the participants set up a tent camp, providing conditions for staying in nature. During the camp, various educational workshops were organized. On Montenegros Statehood Day, workshops were held on the traditional cuisine of Sinjajevina and Montenegro, where homemade bread and kaamak were prepared. Rosa udovi led these workshops, and Stanija Cana Braunovi gave a lecture on the medicinal herbs of Sinjajevina. Following the lecture on teas, the participants took part in a practical workshop that included an excursion to the locations of Strnjaci and Savina Voda. During the outing, participants collected medicinal herbs with detailed explanations on safe tea gathering.

As part of the cultural program, the participants had the opportunity to learn more about the film The Last Nomad, which showcased Sinjajevina with all its natural beauty and distinctive population. Petar Glomazi and Eva Kraljevi presented the film, followed by a movie night held for the first time in the history of Margita, which, for two hours, transformed from pasture to a cinema hall.

The following day, the participants had an excursion to Jablanov Vrh in the early morning hours. In the afternoon, a panel on environmental issues in Montenegro and the region was organized. The panel disc...


70% of Russian Gamers Are Pirates Following Western Publisher Exodus "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

piracy encryptMany events have contributed to the rise and fall of online piracy rates over the past 20 years but few if any can match the fallout from Russias invasion of Ukraine.

Western companies partial or complete withdrawal across all entertainment sectors has profoundly affected content availability. Pre-2022 content libraries remain accessible in some cases but fresh releases of movies, music, and videogames are mostly a thing of the past, at least how things stand today.

The chaos in the movie market has been well-documented over the past 17 months and there are now signs that the videogame market is unlikely to escape a similar fate.

Seven Out of Ten Gamers Now Pirate

According to a survey carried out by online game development platform School XYZ, the departure of major international videogame publishers from the Russian market led to a sharp rise in the number of video gamers playing pirated games.

Almost seven out of ten video gamers (69%) said theyd played at least one pirated copy in 2022, and more than half (51%) said that theyre now pirating more than they did in 2021.

As first reported by the Russian news outlet Vedomosti (paywall), the study was conducted across all regions of Russia and took into account all unlicensed game formats, in most cases downloaded from torrent sites.

While over a quarter of respondents (27%) said theyd pirated three PC games in 2022, and 20% confessed to pirating more than 10, other figures from the study are more positive. Of the 31% of gamers who reported pirating nothing in 2022, all said that they were opposed to piracy. Just 7% of gamers admitted to buying no games at all in 2022, meaning that 93% bought at least one piece of legitimate content.

Availability and Convenience

Its long been argued that if content isnt made available through legal channels, people will find a way to pirate it. Equally, if content is made available but customers are subjected to an inconvenient process to access it, that can contribute to higher rates of piracy.

According to Alexander Kuzmenko, the former editor of Russian videogame magazine and gaming website Igromania (Game Mania), its not just the departure of publishers including Sony, Microsoft, and Nintendo causing problem...


Iron Deficiency Goes Unnoticed in Too Many U.S. Female Adolescents "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Nearly 40 percent lack enough of the essential nutrient, and can suffer from dizziness to anemia:

Many female adolescents in the United States may not have enough iron in their bodies. But most may never know, partly due to a lack of routine screenings as well as disagreement over what constitutes too little iron, pediatric hematologist Angela Weyand argues.

Iron deficiencies are most commonly diagnosed in toddlers, people who menstruate and pregnant people. But Weyand, of the University of Michigan Medical School in Ann Arbor, frequently treats female adolescents for severe cases of the condition. That led her to suspect that its prevalence was being underestimated in that group.

Her analysis of data from thousands of blood samples collected as part of the National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey, which evaluates a nationally representative sample of people each year, suggests the issue is worthy of attention.

Up to 40 percent of U.S. females from the ages of 12 to 21 could be iron deficient, she and colleagues report in the June 27 JAMA. That's much higher than previous estimates of about 16 percent, which use a lower cutoff point than Weyand's team did for iron levels.

Iron is an essential component of red blood cells that helps deliver oxygen to organs and tissues. Iron deficiency can cause dizziness, headaches, fatigue, sleep disorders and cold hands and feet. Some of those problems can lead to low work productivity or an inability to multitask (SN: 5/4/04). Severe iron deficiency can also lead to anemia, a condition in which the body doesn't have enough healthy red blood cells. Anemia can spark more severe issues, such as heart problems or pregnancy complications.

Weyand and colleagues analyzed levels of two iron-containing proteins, hemoglobin and ferritin, in blood samples collected from almost 3,500 female adolescents from 2003 to 2020 as part of the national survey. The researchers diagnosed iron deficiency if the level of ferritin was below 25 micrograms per liter.

Back Alley Arctic "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


What comes to mind when you think of an alley?

If you said dank and dark, I wouldnt be surprised. How about dirty and filled with debris? 

The other day, my family did something that had been on our bucket list for several years. The school holidays had started, and the kids were already a little antsy, so we rounded everyone up and headed over to the Wolseley neighborhood of Winnipeg. 

Our destination was, yep: a back alley. If that sounds strange, let me explain. The alley is more or less like any other in the citywe have 900 kilometers (559 miles) of them. Its a narrow roadway giving access to an assortment of garages and parking pads, with its fair share of weeds, potholes, and garbage and recycling collection carts. Pretty typical.   

Except this alley is also an art gallery. 

In 2017, a prominent Winnipeg artist named Kal Barteski was helping to launch a mural festival in the Arctic community of Churchill, Manitoba. Keen to participate alongside the other artists, but lacking experience painting outdoors and at a large scale, she practiced by painting a polar bear on her garage door. "Nothing good happens in a back laneso I wanted to make it a little more colourful, and see if I could perhaps make a walkable or bikeable art gallery," she told a local media outlet.

This set off a chain reaction, and, one by one, she was invited to paint other garages in her back alley with stunning images of beluga whales, snowy owls, muskox, narwhals, and many more polar bears. As a passionate advocate for sea ice and Arctic animal conservation, she hasnt charged for her artwork, but invited people to donate to a polar bear protection fund. 

Back Alley Arctic, as it is now known, has become a full-blown tourist attraction, with write-ups on dozens of tourism websites and travel blogs. Folks come from all over to grab selfies with snowy owls and group pics with puffins. The alley has also served as an official location during the beloved nighttime arts festival Nuit Blanche, which happens here in September every year.

More than 28,000 people in England and Wales have been convicted of breaches of Covid-19 regulations, despite the government's insistence that it never intended to criminalise people for minor infractions during the pandemic. The convictions are for Covid-related offences, such as attendance at gatherings during lockdowns or arriving at airports without the proper evidence of a coronavirus test. Almost 16,000 of the convictions - or 55% - involved people under 30.


Senate Dems Promise to Stay Out of Fight Between Teamsters and UPS "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

With a potential strike looming in less than two weeks, a group of more than two dozen senators pledged to not get involved in the labor dispute between the Teamsters and UPS.

In a letter sent to Teamsters President Sean OBrien and Carol Tom, the CEO of UPS, the lawmakers express their hope that the two parties can reach a deal before the July 31 deadline. If not, however, they promise not to intervene in the fight, which could significantly disrupt the economy.

We are hopeful that both sides can negotiate in good faith and reach a consensus agreement that addresses basic human needs and allows workers to do their jobs safely and with dignity, the senators wrote. However, in the event a fair and equitable collective bargaining agreement cannot be reached, we commit to respect our constituents statutory and constitutional rights to withhold their labor and initiate and participate in a strike.

The effort was led by Sens. Bernie Sanders (I-VT) and Sherrod Brown (D-OH). All of the other 26 senators who signed the letter were Democrats. A similar letter sent by lawmakers from the House also attracted some GOP support.

[We] understand that Congress has not previously intervened in recent history to implement a collective bargaining agreement between workers and their employer under the National Labor Relations Act, and we commit to not intervening in the collective bargaining process between Teamsters and UPS, the lawmakers wrote.

From the language of the letter, it is clear that this is a show of support to the Teamsters, who are worried that any potential strike on their part would be undercut by politicians in the nations capital.

OBrien has made it very clear recently that the union wants the White House to not be involved at all and potentially undermine the Teamsters in an effort to protect the economy.

We told the White House and I used this analogy throughout our negotiations, throughout our rallies and practice pickets, that we have taken a strong position with the White House that, you know, my neighborhood where I grew up in Boston, if two people had a disagreement, and you had nothing to do with it, you just kept walking, OBrien said earlier this week. And we echoed that to the White House on numer...

P2PInfect, a Rusty P2P worm targets Redis Servers on Linux and Windows systems "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Cybersecurity researchers discovered a new peer-to-peer (P2P) worm called P2PInfect that targets Redis servers.

Palo Alto Networks Unit 42 researchers have discovered a new peer-to-peer (P2P) worm called P2PInfect that targets Redis servers running on both Linux and Windows systems. The capability to target Redis servers running on both Linux and Windows operating systems makes P2PInfect more scalable and potent than other worms. 

The worm is written in the Rust programming language, it targets Redis instances by exploiting the Lua sandbox escape vulnerability CVE-2022-0543 (CVSS score 10.0). 

This CVE-2022-0543 vulnerability has been used in previous attacks aimed at Redis servers carried out tby by the Muhstik and Redigo botnets.

The malware exploits CVE-2022-0543 for initial access, then drops an initial payload that establishes P2P communication to the P2P network.

The researchers identified over 307,000 unique public Redis systems over the last two weeks, of which 934 may be vulnerable to this worm.

At this time it is still unclear the goal of the threat actors behind the botnet. Experts discovered some instances of the word miner within the malicious toolkit of P2PInfect. However, Unit 42 did not find any definitive evidence that the botnet was involved in cryptomining operations.

Once the worm has connected to the P2P network, it downloads additional malicious payloads. Threat actors will use the infected instance to provide access to the other payloads to future compromised Redis servers

Unit 42 discovered the first known instance of P2PInfect on July 11, 2023, using our HoneyCloud environment, which is a set of honeypots that we use to identify and study novel cloud-based attacks across public cloud environments. reads the report published by Palo Alto Networks Unit 42. The P2PInfect worm uses a P2P network to support and facilitate the transmission of malicious binaries.

Iraq has told Sweden's ambassador in Baghdad to leave Iraqi territory, after the Swedish embassy was stormed by hundreds of supporters of Iraqi Shia leader Muqtada al-Sadr at around 1am on Thursday.

Iraqi Prime Minister Mohammed Shia al-Sudani has also directed the foreign ministry to withdraw the Iraqi charge d'affairs from its embassy in the Swedish capital, Stockholm. 

Bassim al-Awadi, an Iraqi government spokesman, said the Swedish ambassador was being asked to leave "in response to the repeated permission of the Swedish government to burn the Noble Quran, insult Islamic sanctities and burn the Iraqi flag".

The Iraqi Media and Communications Commission (CMC) has also suspended the business license of Ericsson, the Swedish telecommunications company, as the fallout continued. 

Sadr's supporters called the demonstration on Thursday to protest a second planned burning of the Quran in Sweden, just weeks after Salwan Momika, a 37-year-old Iraqi man living in Sweden, burnt an Iraqi flag and desecrated the holy book outside the largest mosque in Stockholm.



So hows our press getting on in 2023? "IndyWatch Feed"

The last time I wrote for Slugger on the performance and prospects of our three local daily newspapers was in March 2021. At that point in the aftermath of the defection of Allison Morris and Sam McBride to the Belfast Telegraph from the Irish News and News Letter respectively. I havent contributed on the industry in the subsequent two and a half years as Ive felt frankly and regrettably that there was little to be added to my thoughts then and little likely to be. However a couple of things in the past few weeks have tempted me back on to the subject.

The first was the announcement of the imminent retirement of Noel Doran as Editor of the Irish News after what will be an incredible 25 years in the job. A quarter century tenure is a significant achievement in any year, but to do so in the most traumatic era in the history of printed media is incredible. His achievement was acknowledged when in 2020 he was voted regional editor of the (21st) century by readers of the Hold the Front Page website. I worked with an Editor in the North East of England who deservedly ran him close but theres no doubt Noel was a worthy winner, particularly in the manner he managed the decline of his print copy to such a degree that under his tenure it went from a lower third level paper to the second highest selling regional daily in the UK. A position it still holds as other papers many of whom sold over three times as many daily copies as the IN as late as the mid-2000s continue in continue to accelerate their freefall. It also had the smallest decline (-8%) of any officially declared daily regional in the UK in the second half of 2022.  So congratulations and best wishes to Noel Doran. Its not my paper or my communitys paper but no rational person could fail to recognise a good job very well done.

The second was when someone pointed out to me that next year is the thirtieth anniversary of the first PIRA and Loyalist ceasefires. That took me back to 1993 when as a newly promoted member of the Belfast Telegraph senior executive team I voiced the view that if there really was to be a permanent end to the Troubles as was being speculated endlessly, the paper would need to change immeasurably if it was to have any relevance in a more normal society where front-page news would be a lot harder to come by. Events of the past few weeks brought it home to me how badly our local press failed to rise to the challenge of a new era.

In my 2021 article I concluded with this opinion of our three Belfast dailies:

Generally they reflect the views of a specific community and are unapologetic about it. The Irish News has done it superbly under Noel Dorans editorship and continues to do so. The News Letter did it badly and inconsistently for a couple of decades under previous owners and editors and paid the price. The Belfast Telegraph strategy under Gail Walkers editorship was taking it in the right direction of trying to br...

A story that combines UFO cover-ups with the assassination of John F. Kennedy is a gold mine for conspiracy theorists.

In the never-before-seen, top secret memo supposedly written on Nov. 12, 1963, the president ordered the CIA director to organize the agency's intelligence files relating to UFOs , and to debrief him on all "unknowns" by the following February. Ten days later, Kennedy was assassinated. The newly surfaced document is bound to add fuel to the undying fire surrounding the president's death. But first things first: Is the document authentic?

The percentage of people seeking a reunion with Brussels has risen by 11 points since 2021, when London formally withdrew from the bloc. Some 57% of Britons, meanwhile, said that the UK made the wrong decision in the 2016 referendum. This is the highest-tallied figure of anti-Brexit sentiment noted among UK citizens to have been recorded by YouGov. The data also indicates that one in five people who voted to leave would now vote to remain in the EU. Seven years after the Brexit referendum, many of the economic benefits promised by its most ardent campaigners have yet to bear fruit. The UK remains in the...


Somalia: The trial of officials Accused of Corruption begins in Mogadishu "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

The trial of officials accused of corruption at the Mogadishu airport has officially begun. The defendants, who are all employees of the Nationality and Immigration Agency, are accused of embezzling $20 million that should have been deposited in the government treasury.

The crimes are alleged to have taken place between 2018 and 2023. The defendants are:

  • Abdullahi Mohamud Cosoble, director of the immigration department
  • Omar Maallin Noor, deputy director of the Foreign Affairs Department
  • Sabir Hassan Abdinur, Head of Visa Extension Verification
  • Adan Mohamed Abdi, Director of Visa Processing

The judge of Banadir District court read the charges against the defendants, which include embezzlement, money laundering, falsification of documents, and abuse of power.

The immigration agency has become the focus of the investigation of corruption cases by the federal government. It is believed that a large amount of money has been misappropriated by senior staff at the agency.

The prosecutors office has accused 15 officials of corruption, some of whom have been arrested, while others have fled the country.

The trial is expected to last several weeks. The outcome of the trial will be closely watched by the Somali people, who are eager to see justice served in the fight against corruption.

In-N-Out bans employees in 5 states from wearing masks without doctor's note "IndyWatch Feed World"

The In-N-Out burger chain will bar employees in five states from wearing masks unless they have a doctor's note, according to internal company emails leaked on social media. In the memo announcing new guidelines for Arizona, Colorado, Nevada, Texas and Utah workers, the fast food chain pointed to "the importance of customer service and the ability to show our Associates' smiles and other facial features while considering the health and well-being of all individuals." The policy, which goes into effect August 14, applies to all In-N-Out employees in those states, except for those who need to wear masks or other protective gear for job duties that require it, like painting. Employees could face disciplinary action, including being fired, if they do not comply, the memo says. California and Oregon both have laws in place preventing employers from banning masks.

The media is a monster that eats advertising "IndyWatch Feed World"

Last year I wrote a piece about Medusa. If you haven't read it, it's an exploration of the gorgon myth in relation to modern depictions of Medusa, and the implications for society this symbology represents. I'll reveal to you now though, that while it might seem like I was writing about ancient myth, I was really writing about the New York Times. Think about a monster that: Does not possess any real power of its own, but mobilizes others by setting acceptable opinions Can freeze a target merely by centering it in its journalistic gaze Can ostracize, defame, or destroy Has extensive powers of surveillance Masks the power of others, presents a face for other interests Enjoys all these powers through accumulated prestige So the Medusa myth was a device for understanding mechanisms of control in oligarchic societies legitimized by propaganda rather than capacity for force.


How anti-Muslim bigotry led to the wrongful conviction of Mohammed Hamoud "IndyWatch Feed War"

A full video of Mohammed Yousef Hammouds interview can be found at the end of this article.
By Esteban Carrillo Lopez | The Cradle | July 17, 2023

In 2000, Mohammed Yousef Hamoud one of the most wanted terrorists in the United States was arrested while living in Charlotte, North Carolina, based on allegations that he sent a $3,500 check to the Lebanese resistance group Hezbollah, an allegation for which no actual evidence was presented.

Based on testimony from a single questionable witness, an American prosecutor accused Hamoud of leading a Hezbollah cell in Charlotte, and declared him to be one of the most dangerous terrorists in the world.

The prosecutor, Ken Bell, who acknowledged that a successful prosecution of Hamoud would be the case of a lifetime for advancing his own career, successfully garnered a sentence of 155 years in prison for Hamoud. The jury voted to convict Hamoud amid the anti-Muslim bigotry and paranoia that swept through the United States following the September 11 attacks.

Years later, the sentence was reduced to 30 years, and Hamoud was finally released 3 years early and allowed to return to his family and friends in Lebanon.

Now 49, Hamoud was forced to spend more than half his life in prison without cause. But defying all odds, he obtained degrees in business management and psychology while also studying law to provide advice to his fellow inmates.

Below is an interview conducted by The Cradle with Mohammed Yousef Hamoud, after he was released from a US maximum security prison two months ago from serving a 27-year sentence on charges of providing material support to a terrorist organization. The interview took place at his brothers home in the southern Lebanese town of Srebbine, originally Hamouds hometown.

The Cradle: As you were growing up in Lebanon, what were your political views?

Hamoud: Just like everyone growing up here, I was with the resistance and against occupation. I was pro-liberation and against poverty, and mainly the people with those views were Hezbollah, so I was supporting Hezbollah basically.

The Cradle: You said in a previous interview that you were the first Muslim to be convicted in the United States following the September 11 attacks. Do you feel this influenced the sentence that was issued against you?

Hamoud: Absolutely. I was the first Muslim after September 11 to go to trial. And I was the first Muslim i...

Israeli forces shot dead a Palestinian and wounded three others in Nablus on Thursday morning, shortly after settlers stormed Joseph's Tomb in the occupied West Bank city. 

"A citizen was killed by the [Israeli] occupation bullets in Nablus," the Palestinian health ministry said in a statement, adding that three others were taken to hospital after being wounded by live bullets. 

Two of those wounded were in a critical condition, according to Wafa news agency.

The health ministry confirmed that Bader al-Masri, 19, succumbed to his wounds.

5 Amazing New Discoveries About Light "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Ah Yes. for the record, we have multiple reports confirming that certain large animals coexisting on this planet can themselves do just this which is to induce an invisibility cloak.  Think shimmer man in particular.  that is what it would look like.

It appears that a mere light photon can have lots of geometry whose volume is less than needed to allow decay into a sublight particle.  Hmm.  They can also stick together and do odd things like clump up and perhaps somehow merge though that may mean a loss of information..

A lot of fundzamental questions remain unanswered.

Not least is the relationship to TIME produced by the creation of a fundamental particle pair.  This is tied directly to three dimensional particles while photons are sort of not at all.  right now i do think that all photons have a natural thickness measured by the inverse of empirical infinity  which will also vary slightly from Galaxy to Galaxy.

At least i can conjecture at least one firm dimension here and the other two can be all over the map as they obviously are.  again they are not interacting through TIME which is hte pendulum of our creation.

Geometrically we can think of them all mostly as platters for now with a thickness t which is a constant.

Future Of Oil Demand Is Brighter Than Youve Been Told "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

These charts really tell the story rather well.  The convenience of oil and natural gas will maintain market share even in the face of zero cost electrical power.  The advent of the EV shill shift a portion of that energy demand to electrical which will drive major adjustments globally.

right now though, natural gas is ideal for heating homes while all that transitions to more effciency and geothermal.  Geothermal is also a backup for necessary grid power..  And so far it looks like the EV crowd is drawing off peak power from that same grid which is excellent sense.  Making the Grid efficent is literally free power.

My point though is that oil is necessary because electrical is not nearly as convenient and that applies to just about everything else.  I expect the EV time when the last twenty percent of the global population exits poverty.

Today i can watch a punjabi farm boy crank up hist tractor to do something stupid.  I was that boy in 1955.  today two thirds of our global population can do all this for a can of diesel fuel.  No one is going back to using a bullock..

We will likely keep using oil in particular forever even if a super battery comes along just because it is easy and convenient.  We are slowly reducing coal here because we have natural gas.  Anywhere else not so lucky.

Again the highest and best use of nuclear just happens to be as a heat engine and a static one at that.  Geothermal is also static and all this takes wasyteful power conversion.

We can build static cooling tower like stacks to produce grid powert, but no one has done this yet.  Same is true for fusion energy.  The best skips the hest engine.

The take home tnough is that we will all be electrified at least and Evs will move us about.  everything else can be solved in multiple ways.  imagine giant airships taking containers point to point folks.  Two handling steps and even at 60 mp...


Can Mass Labor Action Succeed? "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

I heard UPS is about to face a strike bigger than anything in US history, while the writers and actors are out in solidarity as we speak. Theres a possible outcome of these mass labor actions that I dont know if any of these glorious fighters are prepared to face.  Cant the corporations involved just let themselves fail?

Think about it.  These fucks all have insurance on their insurance on their insurance, financial vehicles that are impossible for human minds to handle in their complexity.  Shit that makes big math brains reach for the calculator, all constructed to absolve any rich person from ever truly losing.  Golden parachutes, bankruptcy laws more generous than anything even the millionaire class has available to them.

Couldnt the paymasters of UPS see a labor force that has become unmanageable and just say, fuck it, UPS doesnt exist anymore, and all laugh their way to the fucking bank, and live out the rest of their lives in crystal palaces drinking unicorn blood wine and masturbating to surgery videos, or whatever it takes to make a billionaire shoot his goo?

I think the financial system has become a million times more sophisticated since the days of labor action past, when the bosses had to resort to machine gun massacres.  I think the only real mass action that can succeed at this point is stuff that rejects the system completely, works outside of it.  Dont try to make the industry equitable, just build anarcho-syndicalist schemes that allow you to work outside of the industry altogether.  Dark UPS, deliver my packages.  Ill pay you in potatoes and unused oxycodone from my last dental work.  Dark Hollywood, make us the movies you could never have made under Time-Warner-AOL-Starbucks-Huawei-Purina.

Thats my fear on one hand, and my dream on the other.  Good luck to the strikers just the same, and long live the fighters.


Judaism as a Self-Terminating Religion "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Nick Kollerstrom The Unz Review July 18, 2023

Untrue stories exist at each end of Jewish historys three thousand years fictional, fabricated and of immense magnitude. We may start in the tenth century BCE, where archaeologists have after diligent study found no trace of King Solomon, his Temple or his empire. Half a century of intensive excavation of the Holy Land has now reached that conclusion. The alleged mighty empire of David and Solomon, stretching from the Nile to the Euphrates on the basis of which the modern state of Israel was formed did not exist. Meanwhile the Bible makes no mention of the great empire of Egypt, which really did in that period stretch from the Nile to the Euphrates. These things must be relegated to storyland, like Moses parting the Red Sea. Experts were finally attaining this negative conclusion as the new millennium dawned, e.g.

  • Mythic Past, Biblical Archaeology and the Myth of Israel, Thomas Thompson, 1999
  • David and Solomon, In search of the Bibles sacred Kings, Israel Finklestein and N.A. Silberman, 2006
  • The Quest for the Historical Israel, Finklestein and A. Mazar, 2007
  • The Invention of the Jewish People, Shlomo Sand, 2009
  • Palestine, a Four Thousand Year History, Nur Masala, 2018.

Moses, Wikipedia assures us, is just a myth. The Exodus, traditionally the basis of Jewish self-identity and the most-told narrative in the western world,[1] spawns great conferences which tend to end up with the same threefold negation:

  • no evidence for the Children of Israel in Egypt or escaping therefrom,
  • no evidence of their trekking across the Sinai desert
  • no evidence of them storming into Canaan and conquering the locals.

In modern times, Jews were given land in Palestine and called it Israel. Inspired by a great hope, their conviction was that archaeology would validate their epic history, as it had unfolded through past millennia. They went to work with a trowel in one hand and the Bible in the other but received a big shock. The Holy Land did indeed reveal to them centuries of devout monotheism during the time recorded by their ancient scriptures but, it was a reverence for the Goddess, as shown by the thousands of figurines dug up everywhere in Judea where they excavated. They were all similar with head, torso and large naked breasts.[2] Nor could any trace be discerned of a fierce invasion of Canaan by the Children of Israel as their texts averred, plus the odd record of their Jehovah-god had him with a partner, his Asherath.

It was discovered that, in the tenth century BCE there had been an intensive drought....


Central banks planning to introduce CBDC microchip implants, warns top economist "IndyWatch Feed War"

Kevin Hughes Natural News July 18, 2023

A well-known German economist has revealed that central banks around the world are planning to introduce central bank digital currencies (CBDCs) in the form of microchips implanted under the skin. This technology will enable complete government control over personal finances of its citizens.

I was taught by a central banker [that] the CBDCs look like a small grain of rice that they want to put under your skin, said Richard Werner in an interview with podcaster Ivor Cummins. Werner is known for developing the now commonly used bank practice of quantitative easing.

CBDCs, in comparison to other forms of digital currency used at present, demand that individuals open bank accounts directly with central banks such as the Federal Reserve, granting governments control over citizens access to money.

You have to think of CDBCs as a control system [or a permit system], not a currency, Werner said, adding that peoples money would no longer be truly their own. (Related: Expert warns CBDCs could lead economies to a dark path where governments dictate what you can purchase.)

Werner considers implanted CBDCs a violation of human dignity, noting that central bankers themselves know that this common opinion among the masses is a hurdle.

They say theres a problem of trust because people suspect that governments and central banks are just trying to roll this out in order to monitor and control and restrict transactions. Theyre absolutely right, said Werner.

Cummins noted that while implanted CBDCs may sound like a conspiracy theory to some, thousands of people have already agreed to have microchips implanted under their skin to ease financial transactions and access to select areas. Late last year, the first British implanted with a bank card microchip was able to make purchases with only the tap of his hand.

Meanwhile, several Christian commentators have indicated that if such technology becomes a requirement for access to goods and services, it will lead to authoritarianism of biblical magnitude.

Central banks will convince people to adopt CBDC microchip implants

According to Werner, CBDCs will be brought in through phone-based apps during the initial phase. Why hasnt it been rolled out yet? Theres no actual need for it. That need has to be cr...


MODERN SLAVERY: African children sacrificed on the altar of globalisms digitized green economy "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Leo Hohmann July 19, 2023

Patrick Wood, the renowned author of several books about the global technocracy movement, says technocrats are, if nothing else, shameless hypocrites. We see this play out on a daily basis.

We reported yesterday on Kamala Harris boasting about how the government investing in electric vehicles would make for a cleaner environment for our children, the same children she says mothers should be able to abort, for any reason or no reason at all, at any stage of pregnancy. But even her electric vehicle claim rings hollow if you know how electric vehicles and EV batteries are produced.

They promise (the UN, WEF and countless globalist NGOs) to save the worlds children and yet actual policies do just the opposite, Wood writes. Children are the most vulnerable group on earth because they are not able to defend themselves. Thus, they are trafficked, sexually exploited, injected, and marginalized.

The two most common ways children are exploited are for sex and for labor.

In Africa, they are forced to work as slaves in harsh mining operations, such as cobalt mines. They toil in similarly barbaric conditions mining lithium in Afghanistan.

The U.S. Department of Labor has a report listing the goods produced globally by child labor as of 2022.

The short article below focuses on Africas cobalt mines.

By Lucy Wyatt, The Conservative Woman

COBALT is essential to modern technology. All sorts of electronic devices rely on it, along with other elements such as lithium. Solar panels and electric vehicles (EVs) wouldnt function without them. While the environmental degradation associated with both lithium and cobalt extraction is well established, the issues around cobalt are even more poignant because of the manner in which it is mined in the Democratic Republic of Congo.

A new book, Cobalt Red: How the blood of the Congo powers our lives, published in January, details the human suffering, especially of children, directly involved in the mining. Written by a Nottingham University professor, Siddartha Kara, from first-hand...


Ukraine and the West are facing a devastating defeat "IndyWatch Feed War"

Robert Clark The Telegraph July 18, 2023

Donated by the West, Ukrainian Army tanks on the battlefields of Ukraine. Click to enlarge

Since Putins tanks crossed into Ukrainian territory last year, three options have been on the table for how this war would end: victory for one side or the other, a frozen conflict or a negotiated settlement. The public comments made this week by Oleksiy Arestovych, a former advisor to Volodymyr Zelenskys chief of staff, appear to indicate the last may be more likely than previously thought.

Arestovych raised the prospect of Ukraine making territorial concessions in return for the rest of the country receiving the most cast-iron security guarantee there is: Nato membership. These comments have proved highly controversial. Not only would such an outcome be unpalatable to many in Kyiv and other European capitals, raising it as a possibility highlights a growing uncertainty about the long-term sustainability of the war particularly amongst Ukraines western backers.

Arestovychs suggestion comes at a crucial time. The long-planned counter-offensive, now in its second month, has run into several problems not least that Kyiv is still waiting for approximately half of the western military equipment promised earlier in the year. Meanwhile, its forces are under increasing pressure to commit its reserves as Russian troops despite reports of low morale across the front remain dug-in, seemingly committed to defending every inch of Ukrainian ground captured since last year.

As Russian minefields take their toll on western-supplied tanks and Ukrainian sappers, their forces have so-far retaken approximately five miles of the sixty miles they need to split the land-bridge connecting Russia to Crimea. The land between Mariupol in the east and Melitopol to the west is seen as the vital ground to achieving this.

It is incredibly tough going for the Ukrainians. They lack the air cover and advanced jets to protect their ground forces from Russian attack helicopters and fighters. Their soldiers, meanwhile must negotiate miles of minefields, tank-traps and then ultimately the heavily dug Russian trench networks.

Shoigus Purge of Patriots Intensifies "IndyWatch Feed War"

Rolo Slavskiy The Slavland Chronicles July 19, 2023

Funny enough, the only guy who might end up with his head still on his shoulders after all this purging is done is the guy who launched the mutiny in the first place, Evgeniy Prigozhin, on account of his lawyer blood and inner circle oligarch privilege.

You have already probably heard all about the officers that have been fired so far. All of them were somehow related to Surovikin or had critiqued Shoigus disastrous handling of the Not-War. The Western media is happy to report on this, because it makes the Kremlin look like incompetent cretins, but the reality of the matter is that theyre actually quite competent at what their primary task actually is: destroying Russia. Based on this criteria, theyre actually doing a great job.

Keep that in mind as you read on:

Russia sacked two generals in the past week, as Moscows Ministry of Defense reportedly continues to purge its top officers, pointing to a growing disarray in the military leadership following the aborted rebellion by the Wagner mercenary group.

Russian Minister of Defense Sergei Shoigu canned Maj. Gen. Vladimir Seliverstov, commander of the Tula Airborne Division, this week, according to Belarusian news outlet Charter97.

The governor of the Tula region, which borders Moscow, Alexei Dyumin, tried to stand up for Seliverstov, who was involved in the battles in Bakhmut, but to no avail, according to the Russian publication VChK-OGPU.

Seliverstovs reported firing comes days after Maj. Gen. Ivan Popov was sacked following a recorded tirade he went on against the Russian government, in which he raised questions about high casualty rates and lack of artillery support, echoing the themes of some of the tirades posted by Wagner Group chief Yevgeny Prigozhin in the weeks leading up to last months short-lived mutiny.

Popov, 48, claimed in a voice recording published by Russian Politician Andrew Gurulyov that he was fired as head of the 58th Combined Arms Army in retaliation for his criticism.

I had no right to lie in the name of you, in the name of my fallen comrades in arms, so I outlined all the problems which exist, he said in the recording.

Major General Vladimir Seliverstov was removed from the post of commander of the Tula 106th Airborne Division.

The Ukrainian army could not break through our ranks at the front but our senior chief hit us from the rear, viciously beheading the army at the most difficult and intense moment, he continued.

Makow Modest Proposal: A Human Depopulation Agreement "IndyWatch Feed War" July 19, 2023

Humanity agrees to go extinct peacefully.

Modest Proposal Humanity acknowledges that it is comatose and agrees to pull the plug. It agrees to be sterilized in exchange for a truce from Communist Jews and their Freemason flunkies. (i.e. Satanists, Zionists, Liberals, Antifa, Transsexuals, Feminists.)

Within a short century, the planet will be rid of useless eaters (us) and become a playground for sick Satanists/Communists and their preferred number of perverts.

People today are obviously too selfish, venal, cowardly, and feeble-minded to unite and defend themselves. They were too stupid to figure out that a pandemic with a 00.25% death rate was not a pandemic, and a disease without symptoms was not a disease. Already, slaves, they will gratefully embrace this peaceful, easy compromise. Emphasis is on easy.

 Sterilization should not be an issue. People obviously no longer care about their children or the world they will inherit.

I have a solution to mankinds problems that should satisfy everyone.

Humanity volunteers to be sterilized in exchange for the satanist Jewish bankers and Freemasons (Communists) ending their war against God and man.

This means that within a short century, the planet will be rid of useless eaters (us) and become a playground for sick Satanists/Communists and their preferred number of perverts.

Humanity agrees to go peacefully

What does mankind get out of this?

1. Satanists/Communists call off their vaccine and climate change hoaxes, chemtrails, geo-engineering, cbdcs, 15-min cities, CRT, lockdown lunacy, and vax passports.

They will curb their Antifa/BLM goons before whom we cower in fear like little girls. We avoid violent Dark Winter dystopia and enjoy relative peace an...

The Alps And Arctic Areas Home To Microbes Found To Digest Plastic At Cold Temperatures "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"


Scientists at the Swiss Federal Institute WSL have made a groundbreaking discovery in the Alps: a group of microbes that possess the ability to consume plastic at low temperatures. This finding has significant implications for combating plastic pollution, as these microbes offer a more cost-effective and environmentally friendly solution compared to existing methods.

Previous research has identified various microorganisms capable of breaking down plastic polymers. In response, many businesses have focused on genetically modifying the enzymes found in bacteria and fungi to address the plastic pollution crisis. However, these endeavors have faced limitations due to the requirement of high temperatures for the enzymes to function effectively. This heating process incurs substantial costs and is not carbon neutral.

The recent study by the Swiss Federal Institute WSL unveiled the most efficient plastic-eating organisms, namely two fungi known as Neodevriesia and Lachnellulam. These fungi exhibit a remarkable ability to degrade biodegradable polyester-polyurethane (PUR) and two commercially available mixtures of polybutylene adipate terephthalate (PBAT) and polylactic acid (PLA) at a mere 15 degrees Celsius or 60 degrees Fahrenheit.

In addition to these notable fungi, the study identified a total of nine fungal species and eight bacterial species from diverse genera that could digest PUR. Moreover, 14 fungi and three bacteria were found to consume mixtures of PBAT and PLA.
