French authorities dismantle Black Hand dark web market "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

The Black Hand forum, considered to be one of the most important illegal platforms of the dark web in France, has been dismantled by French law enforcement. According to information shared by Grald Darmanin, the French Minister of Public Action and Accounts, over 40 agents of the National Directorate of Intelligence and Customs Investigations (DNRED), customs handlers and technical experts were involved in coordinated raids in several French cities on June 12, 2018.

Trump Administration Secretly Closed Program Helping Refugee Children "IndyWatch Feed Politics.us"

By Helen Christophi, Courthouse News Service

 

SAN FRANCISCO (CN) A group of Central American immigrants has filed a class action lawsuit (pdf) against the Trump administration over the secret termination of a refugee program that gave children fleeing violence in the region a path to reunification with their parents in the United States.

 

The plaintiffs, Central American immigrants legally residing in the United States and their minor children living in Central America, say racism against Latinos motivated the administrations 2017 decision to terminate the Central American Minors (CAM) program.

 

The June 13 complaint claims the administration shut down the program just days after Trump entered office in January 2017, but didnt announce the termination until August of that year.

 

The plaintiffs say the new administration immediately stopped interviewing program beneficiaries and froze their applications; stopped issuing decisions to applicants who were likely candidates for parole; and stopped scheduling the medical exams required for parolees to travel to the United States all in secret.

 

Nonetheless, the administration continued to accept money from applicants, including $100 or more for medical exams and $1,400 for each childs plane ticket to the United States, the class representatives say.

 

The money hasnt been returned, despite the revocation of the plaintiffs conditional approval to travel to the United States, according to Daniel Asimow, who represents the class.

 

These are thousands of families that expected their children would be reunified with them, kids in grave danger in the Northern Triangle countries, Asimow said by phone. To be told your child is approved for legal travel, that authorization is forthcoming, and to have the government go silent is devastating for these families.

 

The only recourse for the 3,000 young people whose conditional approval was revoked is to request review of the denial.

 

The plaintiffs reviews have yet to be granted, however, raising fears that children who had been accepted as parolees will be permanently blocked from entering the United States.

 

Citing President Donald Trumps racist statements made during the 2016 presidential campaign, the plaintiffs claim the un...

Community evicted by accused murderer seeks justice for Gabriel Filho "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

A temporary cross marks the spot where Gabriel Filho was murdered in 2010. The case has yet to come to trial against the alleged murderer, large landowner, and claimant of the property on which the Gabriel Filho community was built. Image Thomas Bauer. This is the first in a series by journalist Ann Sophie Gross who travelled to the Brazilian states of Tocantins and Maranho in Legal Amazonia in May for Mongabay to assess the impacts of agribusiness on the regions environment and people. GABRIEL FILHO: Tocantins, Brazil: In April of this year, 19 families were ordered to vacate the homes theyd lived in for more than a decade, and also forced to leave behind their croplands and livestock. Compounding the sense of injustice residents felt, the man driving their eviction is accused of murdering a community member in 2010. Shortly after that murder, the families decided to name their community Gabriel Filho, after the deceased, to emblazon the tragedy on their collective identity, and to remember. Today, Gabriel Filhos hundred exiled residents are in legal limbo, living in improvised shacks  tarps hung on wooden poles. Theyre banned by a court ruling from returning to their community to tend their fields and care for their animals. We cant even go back to our home to get our things, to collect our crops.

The he is Jos Ccamapaza , a social and economic justice campesino leader from Colorado, a Peruvian village located next to Bahuaja-Sonene National Park. In December, he was found dead in his truck, a gunshot wound to his head. His death was seen by some as score-settling for his challenges to regional powers. Angelina*, who agreed to speak with Mongabay Latam without her name being revealed, remembers that Ccamapaza always spoke out about problems in the area. Sometimes you just have to speak very softly if you want to keep living, Angelina said, her whispers blending in with the sound of intense rain falling on her coffee plants in Putina Punco, in the mountainous rainforests of the Puno Region. From the two hectares where Angelina manages her coffee crops with her husband Moiss*, one can see the Bolivian rainforest, some of which is contained by Madidi National Park. The border between Peru and Bolivia is marked by the Tambopata River. Slightly closer, and within Peruvian territory, is Bahuaja-Sonene National Park.

Buttery Smooth Fades with the Power of HSV "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In firmware-land we usually refer to colors using RGB. This is intuitively pleasing with a little background on color theory and an understanding of how multicolor LEDs work. Most of the colorful LEDs we are use not actually a single diode. They are red, green, and blue diodes shoved together in tight quarters. (Though interestingly very high end LEDs use even more colors than that, but thats a topic for another article.) When all three light up at once the emitted light munges together into a single color which your brain perceives. Appropriately the schematic symbol for an RGB LED without an onboard controller typically depicts three discrete LEDs all together. So its clear why representing an RGB LED in code as three individual values {R, G, B} makes sense. But binding our representation of color in firmware to the physical system we accidentally limit ourselves.

3 Lessons in People-Centered Transportation from the First U.S. City to Completely Eliminate Parking Minimums "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Hartford is a modest city in central Connecticut that made history last year when it removed parking minimum laws citywide. This shift means that unlike most American towns which require homes and businesses to provide a certain amount of parking spaces based on their square footage or number of units Hartford no longer mandates any parking, leaving that decision in the hands of a developer, homeowner or business owner. The decision to eliminate parking minimums passed Hartfords Planning & Zoning Commission by a unanimous vote.

We wish this was the standard everywhere, but its not, so Hartfords is a radical act. What created the circumstances that allowed this change to be implemented? What softened the ground for change that, in so many municipalities, seems a long ways away?

Three key factors made this change possible:

1. The city is already easily accessible without a car.

 A typical narrow, people-centered residential street in Hartford, CT 

A typical narrow, people-centered residential street in Hartford, CT 

Instead, as one of the oldest cities in America, Hartford was constructed long before the automobile in a compact manner with small commercial corridors in each neighborhood that residents can easily walk to. This means that many of residents daily needs can be met without a car already.

Sara Bronin, Chair of the City of Hartfords Planning & Zoning Commission, explains, Hartford is a very low income city and about 25% of our residents lack access to cars. Indeed, the median household income in Hartford is about $21,000. So Hartford is already home to many people who dont drive on a regular basis. This means that, in essence, parking minimums in the city were disproportionately benefitting higher income r...

Organizer of the Great March of Return says protests in Gaza must go on "IndyWatch Feed War"

The Great March of Return established itself as a new way for the Palestinian people to re-energize our cause and generate political pressure against the occupation in innovative ways without the devastating cost of military struggle; a way to put Palestinian rights back on the global agenda and reclaim the image of a people justly struggling for freedom and rights in the face of brutal and violent racist oppression.

Mistakes have also been made in this effort, however, which have harmed this peaceful approach and even jeopardized its future.

The Great March of Return must go on. There is simply no alternative to peaceful popular resistance. But we also need to take a step back and think about how we can reduce its cost in lives and injuries to our people, so that we may be able to nurture and grow this new form of resistance.

Our struggle for freedom is long, and its victory will be the fruit of countless efforts and sacrifices. The occupation state has been revealed as the main perpetrator of murders and massacres, and its aim is clear: to raise the cost of the Great March of Return until we ourselves abandon this path.

Beyond this obvious interest of the occupier, however, we must also be able to engage in reflection and self-examination, to objectively assess our successes and failures to date and to narrow the space available to the occupation to attack and kill our people.

Palestinians show their skills near tents during the Great March of Return, at the Israel-Gaza border in the east of Gaza City on April 11, 2018. (Photo: Ashraf Amra/APA Images)

What do we want from the Great March of Return?

Our struggle against the occupation is ultimately one of symbols and images; a battle to be waged in the global media and before the people of the world. It is this, more than any direct physical engagement with occupation forces, that can transform the broader conditions that allow the occupation to continue. And this can be done without spilling another drop of Palestinian blood.

The next phase of the Great March of Return must see an escalation in artistic, cultural and social actions. Instead of direct confrontation with occupation soldiers, the struggle should take the form of art exhibits, dance and theatre; children planting trees; university...

What the West Has Done to Syria "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

The appropriate response to the threat of a world war erupting in Syria is not really fear; it is unmitigated, howling rage at the western sociopaths who created this situation in the first place.

By Caitlin Johnstone and cross-posted from her blog, CaitlinJohnstone.com

Rumors are again swirling of an impending false flag chemical weapons attack in Syria, just as they did shortly before the highly suspicious Douma case in April. Warnings from Syrian and Russian intelligence, as well as US war ship movements and an uptick in US funding for the Al Qaeda propaganda firm known as the White Helmets, give these warnings a fair bit of weight. Since the US war machine has both a known regime change agenda in Syria and an extensive history of using liespropaganda and false flags to justify military interventionism, theres no legitimate reason to give it the benefit of the doubt on this one. These warnings are worth taking seriously.

So some people are understandably nervous. The way things are set up now, it is technically possible for the jihadist factions inside Syria and their allied imperialist intelligence and defense agencies to keep targeting civilians with chemical weapons and blaming the Assad government for them until they pull one off that is so outrageous that it enables the mass media to manufacture public support for a full-scale assault on Damascus. This would benefit both the US-centralized empire which has been plotting regime change in Syria for decades and the violent Islamist extremists who seek control of the region. It also creates the very...

Free software is at risk in the EU -- take action now "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Members of the European Parliament want to turn upload platforms like GitLab into "censorship machines" that require user-uploaded materials to be monitored and automatically filtered, a process which would prevent modified and reused code from being uploaded. This provision is covered under Article 13 of the Copyright Directive.

If Article 13, embedded within the proposal, becomes official policy, it will be impossible for developers to build off of one another's code -- which is not only a blow to the collaborative development of free software, but a push against the basic freedoms of free software. Software isn't free unless it can be modified and shared. Article 13 will affect all users of free software -- as development of free software suffers, the quality and availability of updates, new features, and new programs will also suffer.

What you can do

You can help turn the tide against Article 13. Contact your member of European Parliament (MEP) before June 20th.

Why a minor change to how EPA makes rules could radically reduce environmental protection "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Since the Reagan administration, federal agencies have been required to produce cost-benefit analyses of their major regulations. These assessments are designed to ensure that regulators are pursuing actions that make society better off.

In my experience working on the White House economic team in the Clinton and Obama administrations, I found cost-benefit provides a solid foundation for understanding the impacts of regulatory proposals. It also generates thoughtful discussion of ways to design rules to maximize net benefits to the public.

Stone admits he met with a Russian national at a posh Miami restaurant in 2016 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

(INTELLIHUB) Longtime Trump operative and outspoken political pundit Roger Stone recently admitted to members of the special counsel that he now vaguely recalls meeting with a man by the name of Henry Greenberg back in May of 2016, who Stone says wanted $2 million in exchange for heavy dirt on Hillary Clinton during the run-up to the presidential election.

However, as it turns out, Greenburg has previously operated as an FBI informant who was let into the country by rogue factions embedded within the deep state branch of the U.S. federal government in exchange for his reported 17 years of service which at times put his life in jeopardy but the story doesnt end there.

More importantly, Greenberg appears to be a Russian national and may possibly be a Clinton Campaign cut-out who was operating in conjunction with or on the same assignment as the recently doxxed FBI operative Stefan A. Halper was caught spying on both the Trump Campaign and the Jimmy Carter administration.

AMA says take your MEDS while doctors take your GUNS "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

For some reason, the American Medical Association  which was founded to promote the American medical community wants to wade into one of the premier political battles of our day: Gun control.

The AMA has shifted at least some of its attention recently away from pushing Big Pharma meds that kill more than 100,000 Americans a year to jumping on the gun confiscation bandwagon pushed by the Marxist Left.

As reported by TownHall, the organization last week approved a wide-ranging list of common sense gun control demands that include banning the sale of all assault-type weapons, bump stocks and related devices, high-capacity magazines, and armor piercing bullets.

The list was okayed by the AMAs House of Delegates, a pretend legislative body that meets a couple times a year at overpriced venues to drink overpriced liquor and vote on medical and political recommendations.

As TownHall noted further:

The lengthy list of gun policy changes also includes bans on the sale of firearms and ammunition to those under 21 years of age, prohibitions on the ownership and unsupervised use of firearms by those under 21, and the establishment of a national gun registry for all firearms and a gun licensing system for gun owners.

Also, the organizations gun control proposals include a number of provisions ostensibly aimed at curbing domestic violence and abuse, including one recommendation for a new legal tool by which family members, intimate partners, household members and law enforcement personnel can go to court in order to have a persons guns confiscated when there is a high or imminent risk for violence. 

No risk of having that authority abused, right?

According to a blog post introducing the common sense proposals, the AMA appears to ignore a well-established constitutional requirement due process which must be engaged before a persons property or belongings can be confiscated by authorities. 

Were this proposal to be implemented, it would mean the accused would not have an opportunity to defend himself or herself in court. Also, the proposals contain nothing in terms of how risk for violence would actually be defined, which means that even people without criminal records or any previous history of violence or abuse could feasibly have their firea...

Promising new material has the right properties to capture solar energy, split water into hydrogen and oxygen "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Solar energy is clean and abundant. But when the sun isnt shining, you must store the energy in batteries or through a process called photocatalysisin which solar energy is used to make fuels. In photocatalytic water splitting, sunlight separates water into hydrogen and oxygen. The hydrogen and oxygen can then be recombined in a fuel cell to release energy.

Now, a new class of halide double perovskitesmay have just the right properties to split water, according to a newly published paper in Applied Physics Letters.

If we can come up with a material that can be useful as a water-splitting photocatalyst, then it would be an enormous breakthrough, said Feliciano Giustino, a co-author on the paper.

Tens or Hundreds of Billions of Dollars Needed to Combat Opioid Crisis? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

US needs to invest 'tens of billions or hundreds of billions' to fight opioid epidemic

The goal of an opioid is to reduce pain, but the addictive drugs are creating pain for millions of families suffering through the crisis. Deaths from opioid overdoses number at least 42,000 a year in the U.S., according to the Centers for Disease Control.

"This is an epidemic that's been getting worse over 10 to 20 years," Caleb Alexander, co-director of Johns Hopkins Center for Drug Safety, told CNBC's "On The Money" in a recent interview. "I think it's important that we have realistic expectations about the amount of work that it will take and the amount of coordination to turn this steamship around," Alexander added.

[...] Alexander added: "The statistics are stunning. More than 2.1 million Americans have an opioid use disorder or opioid addiction" and he says the country needs to "invest tens of billions or hundreds of billions of dollars" to shore up the treatment system. He said patients should be able to access medications that "we know work to help reduce the cravings for further opioids."

Don't mention the Portugal model!

Meanwhile, the Massachusetts Attorney General is suing members of the family that runs Purdue Pharma:

Their family name graces some of the nation's most prestigious bastions of culture and learning the Sackler Center for Arts Education at the Guggenheim Museum, the Sackler Lefcourt Center for Child Development in Manhattan and the Sackler Institute for Developmental Psychobiology at Columbia University, to name a few.

Now the Sackler name is front and center in a lawsuit accusing the family and the company they own and run, Purdue Pharma, of helping to fuel the deadly opioid crisis that has killed thousands of Americans.

The Coming Deep State Massacre (Part One) "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

There is a plot that is so intricate, so detailed, so complex and so very brilliant, it is very difficult to explain to others who already dont know some, or most of the story. The revelation of this plot may cause me, in the near future, to reverse my position on Jeff Sessions and my expressed to desire to have him removed as Attorney General.

Unlike when I stood alone for months on reports of the near coup against the Obama administration over Benghazi, what I am about to reveal is known by others, either in part or in whole. My preference would have been to have waited and several journalists report what is known at the same time. However, I just conducted a telephonic interview with Paul Preston. In addition, one of my best sources, after months of telling me big things are going to become public with regard to Deep State minions, I have concluded that I am a bit ahead of the knowledge curve and it would not be wise for me to hang onto what I have learned.

In a nutshell, this paper will reveal that high profile figures have been involved in treasonous activity against the United States, coupled with illicit criminal behavior at the same time. I have learned that some of these figures are on the verge of being arrested and indicted y the Trump administration. Unlike my Benghazi revelations, I do not stand alone in my discoveries. Without the information I have recently learned, I could have made a strong circumstantial case supporting what is going to be revealed here today. Subsequently, from a credibility standpoint, this is very low risk. However, from a personal safety perspective, it would not be wise to reveal my discoveries and recent conclusions.

MONUMENT VALLEY, Utah   Navajo Nation President Russell Begaye and Vice President Jonathan Nez on Friday helped the family of Code Talker Samuel T. Holiday say goodbye to a father, grandfather, uncle, warrior and friend.

During a funeral service set against the same iconic backdrop in Monument Valley where Holiday was born, President Begaye called Holiday a friend and a hero, admired by the Navajo people and recognized by the United States government for his role in helping turn the tide of World War II in the Pacific Theater. Holiday died June 11 at Southern Utah Veterans Home, in Ivins, Utah. He was 94.

Watch The World Spin With The Earth Clock "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

With the June solstice right around the corner, its a perfect time to witness first hand the effects of Earths axial tilt on the days length above and beyond 60 degrees latitude. But if you cant make it there, or otherwise prefer a more regular, less deprived sleep pattern, you can always resort to simulations to demonstrate the phenomenon. [SimonRob] for example built a clock with a real time rotating model of Earth to visualize its exposure to the sun over the year.

The daily rotating cycle, as well as Earths rotation within one year, are simulated with a hand painted plastic ball attached to a rotating axis and mounted on a rotating plate. The hand painting was done with a neat trick; placing printed slivers of an atlas inside the transparent orb to serve as guides. Movement for both axes are driven by a pair of stepper motors and a ring of LEDs in the same diameter as the Earth model is used to represent the Sun. You can of course wait a whole year to observe it all in real time, or then make use of a set of buttons that lets you fast forward and reverse time.

Earths rotation, and especially countering it, is a regular concept in astrophotography, so its a nice change of perspective to use it to look onto Earth itself from the outside. And who knows, if [SimonRob] ever feels like extending his clock with an aurora borealis simulation, he might find inspiration in this northern lights tracking light show.

This is a spectacular showpiece and a great project you can do with common tools already in your workshop. Once youve mastered earth, put on your machinists hat and give the solar system a try.

Afgelopen zaterdagnacht hebben we een succesvolle strijdbare demonstratie gehouden. Met een kleine groep zijn we door het centrum gelopen en hebben daarbij veel flyers verdeeld waarop onverwacht veel interesse was. Met een provocatieve flyer hebben we geprobeerd het perspectief op een andere samenleving open te breken en te laten zien wat anarchistische ideen kunnen betekenen:

Anarchisme leeft!

Het gaat goed met Nederland, de economie groeit, de bazen en politici lopen weer de hele dag te grijnzen. Tegelijkertijd gaat het slecht met Nederland; de kloof tussen arm en rijk wordt groter, het aantal sociale huurwoningen neemt af, studieschulden stapelen zich op, arbeidsrechten brokkelen af, oorlogen duren voort en het klimaat gaat kapot. Voor veel meer mensen valt er niets te lachen. Wij betalen de prijs voor het succes van de rijken. Wij vinden dat deze ontwikkeling gestopt moet worden. De politici stellen dat er geen andere uitweg is, dat dit beleid de beste deal is. Wij weten wel beter.

Er is een alternatief

Een andere wereld, waarin we op gelijke voet samen onze wereld vormgeven. Waar we zelf bepalen waar we in willen investeren (niet alleen geld, maar ook tijd, energie en aandacht). Dit is niet in de winst van aandeelhouders, maar in het welzijn van ons allemaal. Wij zijn anarchisten en wij blijven ons inzetten voor zon wereld, want die is hard nodig. Waar sta jij?

Even the gods were frightened by the Flood, and retreated, ascending to the heaven of Anu. "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The past is prologue. Our understanding of how CO2 levels relate to global temperature came out of 19th-century scientists studying the newly discovered Ice Age. In the generations since, our studies of how the last Ice Age ended showed us monstrous flooding as vast bodies of meltwater were released by crumbling walls of ice to rush across the planet carving out huge rivers, and global sea levels rose hundreds of feet in a matter of a couple centuries.

The past is prologue, and the ice is melting. The flood is coming, and we are not prepared.

Antarcticas ice sheet is melting at a rapidly increasing rate, now pouring more than 200 billion tons of ice into the ocean annually and raising sea levels a half-millimeter every year, a team of 80 scientists reported Wednesday.The melt rate has tripled in the past decade, the study concluded. If the acceleration continues, some of scientists worst fears about rising oceans could be realized, leaving low-lying cities and communities with less time to prepare than they had hoped.

Unfortunately, the Washington post is still clinging to the idea thatnations have a short window perhaps no more than a decade to cut greenhouse-gas emissions if they hope to avert some of the worst consequences of climate change. The one decade to act talking point was a good try in a world committed to ignoring the problem, but it hasnt been an accurate description for a long time. 10 years left came and went 10-20 years ago. Studies like this no longer warn us about what could happen, they are telling us what will happen.

The gods were cowering like dogs, crouching by the outer wall.

Itar shrieked like a woman in childbirth,
the sweet-voiced Mistress of the Gods wailed:
The olden days have alas turned to clay,
because I said evil things in the Assembly of the Gods!
How could I say evil things in the Assembly of the Gods,
ordering a catastrophe to destroy my people?
No sooner have I given birth to my dear people
than they fill the sea like so many fish!

The gods -those of the Anunnaki- were weeping with her,
the gods humbly sat weeping, sobbing with grief,
their lips burning, parched with thirst.
Six days and seven nights
came the wind and flood,
the storm flattening the land.

If I had to live in Israel again, it would actually drive me insane Shaul Magid "IndyWatch Feed War"

Rabbi Shaul Magid is an Israeli-American, and a leading scholar of Jewish studies at Indiana University, long associated with liberal Zionist causes. Last month he spoke at a Center for Jewish History panel on Israel-Diaspora relations. Most of the panelists called for a renewal of the relationship between Israel and US Jews.

But Magid said the relationship was necessarily adversarial, and he all but said that Zionism is a dead letter. Zionism needs a radical recalibration if it is to go on, he said; and as to Israel, where he lived for 10 years:

I often think what it would be like for me to live there again, and given the political reality and given my own inclinations, I think it would actually drive me insane.

But Jews are living fine in the U.S., he said. Here are some of his remarks.

 

Im going to be the buzzkill, I think. Its a negative tension [between Israeli and American Jewry] and there are four reasons why. Somewhere, first of all, [David] Ben-Gurion said one of the greatest challenges to Zionism will be a robust Diaspora, because he understood that the instability of the Diaspora was that which keeps Zionism alive and fresh, and this notion of the negation of the Diaspora is something that is so built into Zionist thinking and Zionist education, that in a sense, in one way, contemporary America is Ben-Gurions worst nightmare.

The second thing is I think Ben-Gurion made three mistakes, three understandable miscalculations, and the three miscalculations gave us what I think we have in the present state of Israel. The first miscalculation was that Diaspora Jews would come. The second miscalculation was that the Arabs would leave. And the third miscalculation was that the haredi [ultra-Orhtodox] would secularize. Those are three calculations that he made in the state.

And it was understandable in the 1930s, when the Diaspora was in such a precarious state, that if there was a Jewish state, why wouldnt Jews come? If theres a Jewish state, why would the Arabs stay? And why would the haredim live in a secular Jewish society?

But the truth is the Arabs didnt leave, the Jews didnt come, and the haredi didnt secularize, and in some way the state of Israel is the result of that. And given the fact that all of the procrastinations aside with the 2013 Pew Poll [showing...

California Tests Kindle-ized License Plates "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

California drivers can now opt for e-paper license plates that display custom messages Photo: Reviver Auto

That license plate frame sporting a dealership name, sports team logo, or your favorite superhero? Thats so last year.

This year, auto dealers in California will be able to go beyond personalized license plate frames to sell Kindle-ized license plates, in which the entire plate can display custom text and graphics using e-paper technology. These displays can be updated remotely, with such updates replacing the little date stickers that must be reapplied each year when registration is renewed.

And, when the car is stopped, drivers will also be able to reduce the license number to a small window and use the rest of the screen for a different graphic. (Though Im not sure the people stopped behind a custom-plate-bearing car will notice; so many people take that opportunity to surreptitiously check their mobile phones.)

Reviver Auto is making the so-called Rplates, and they arent cheapthe plates are listed at US $700, plus an $8 a month subscription fee. The company is initially focused on marketing them to fleet managers, who are expected to use the displays for advertising messages, but expects early adopters to quickly jump on the technology, and other consumers to come on board as the company proves out the plates usefulness.

The project started in 2008, Reviver founder and CEO Neville Boston says, with a plan to eliminate those date stickersit was time, he thought, to get registration renewals out of snail mail and into the wireless world. In the midst of an economic downturn, he says, he was also looking to get involved with something that exists in good times and badand the DMV is certainly that.

Then, he says, he started thinking about what else e-paper plates could do. His list of possibilities includes:

  • Paying for tolls and parking

  • Identifying cars as legal for travel in high-occupancy vehicle lanes

  • Replacing special hangtags and license plates for people with disabilities

  • Helping an Uber driver find a passenger by displaying the passengers name

  • Indicating that a car is in autonomous mode

Clean energy investment must be 50% higher to limit warming to 1.5C "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

An extra $460bn per year needs to be invested on the low-carbon economy globally over the next 12 years to limit global warming to 1.5C, a new paper says.

This is 50% higher than the additional investment needed to meet a 2C limit, the paper says. It is the first to assess the difference in investments and monetary flows between the two temperature goals of the Paris Agreement, the lead author tells Carbon Brief.

The paper also finds a far faster increase in low-carbon energy and energy efficiency investment would be needed to limit warming to 1.5C. Meanwhile, coal investment would not change substantially between a 1.5C and 2C scenario, the lead author says, since a dramatic downscaling of coal investments is already required to meet the 2C goal.

Financial flows

The Paris Agreement says countries should scale up finance to the low-carbon economy. Article 2.1(c) of the deal commits signatories to:

Making finance flows consistent with a pathway towards low greenhouse gas emissions and climate-resilient development.

The new paper, published today in Nature Energy, aims to quantify the scale of financial flows that may be required to meet the overarching temperature goals of the Paris deal. It assesses how much would be needed for four scenarios.

In the first, countries meet the targets laid out in their current individual climate pledges (nationally determined contributions, or NDCs). The second looks at meeting the Paris goal of limiting global warming to well below 2C. The third scenario considers a world where the aspirational Paris target of limiting warming to 1.5C is met. These are compared to a business-as-usual scenario with no further tightening of current climate and energy policies.

The study combines the results from six different integrated assessment models (IAMs) to make its findings more robust. Each mo...

Estonia To Create Largest 24/7 Free Public Transit Zone in the World "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Should public transportation be free? Officials in the country of Estonia believe yes, which is why they are creating the largest 24/7 free public transit zone in the world. As CityLab reports, the area encompassing free transportation will stretch across the entire country. If people desire, they will be able to travel by bus from one end of the Baltic nation to the other for free.

Estonia is home to approximately 1.3 million people. It is also a world leader in free public transit. In 2013, authorities made all public transit in the nations capital, Tallinn, free to local residents (but not tourists or other visitors). Now, all state-run bus travel in rural municipalities will be free.

As HuffPost points out, there will be some limitations. Free journeys will be available for all Estonians using country buses, but not for trains. Furthermore, in Estonian cities outside of the capital, all passengers will have to pay to use all modes of public transit. Despite these limitations, Estonias transit system will still be the largest national free public transportation scheme in the world.

The Stanford prison experiment is not what it seemed "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Many of you will have heard of the famous Stanford prison experiment in 1971 when Philip Zimbardo, a psychology professor at Stanford University, randomly assigned one group of students to be inmates and the other group to be guards who had total power over the prisoners for two weeks. The setting was a mock prison (actually the basement of a university building). But after six days the experiment had to be called off because, as claimed by Zimbardo, the guards used such sadistic methods against the inmates that the latter were on the verge of breakdowns. The experiment has been cited numerous times to warn of the dangers of giving people unchecked power over others and the need for prison reform.

Now this article by Ben Blum says that things were not that bad and that the supposedly traumatized victims were just acting that way. It is a long, fascinating, but also disturbing article about how the legend of the experiment grew out of all proportion to the reality, aided by exaggerated and misleading statements by Zimbardo. In the process, it might have harmed actual efforts at meaningful prison reform.

It is more accurate to say that, for all its reformist ideals, the Stanford prison experiment contributed to the polarizing intellectual currents of its time. According to a 2017 survey conducted by Cullen and his colleagues Teresa Kulig and Travis Pratt, 95% of the many criminology papers that have cited the Stanford prison experiment over the years have accepted its basic message that prisons are inherently inhumane.

What struck me later in life was how all of us lost our scientific skepticism, Cullen says. We became as ideological, in our way, as the climate change deniers. Zimbardos and Martinsons studies made so much intuitive sense that no one took a step back and said, Well, this could be wrong.

Most criminologists today agree that prisons are not, in fact, as hopeless as Zimbardo and Martinson made them out to be. Some prison programs do reliably help inmates better their lives. Though international comparisons are difficult to make, Norways maximum-security Halden prison, where convicted murderers wear casual clothing, receive extensive job-skill training, share meals with unarmed guards, and wander at will during daylight hours through a scenic landscape of pine trees and blueberry bushes, offers a hopeful sign. Norwegians prisoners seldom get in fights and reoffend at lower rates than anywhere else in the world. To begin to ameliorate the evils of mass incarceration, Cullen argues, will require researching what makes some forms of prison management better than others, rather than, as the Stanford prison experiment did, dismissing them all as inherently abusive.

Prayer and Meditation for Tuesday, June 19, 2018 Love your enemies. "IndyWatch Feed War"

Image result for Ahab, king of Israel, pictures

King Ahab was ruler over the kingdom of Israel. The one word to describe Ahab is selfish.

.

Tuesday of the Eleventh Week in Ordinary Time
Lectionary: 366

Reading 1 1 KGS 21:17-29

After the death of Naboth the LORD said to Elijah the Tishbite:
Start down to meet Ahab, king of Israel,
who rules in Samaria.
He will be in the vineyard of Naboth,
of which he has come to take possession.
This is what you shall tell him,
The LORD says: After murdering, do you also take possession?
For this, the LORD says:
In the place where the dogs licked up the blood of Naboth,
the dogs shall lick up your blood, too.'
Ahab said to Elijah, Have you found me out, my enemy?
Yes, he answered.
Because you have given yourself up to doing evil in the LORDs sight,
I am bringing evil upon you: I will destroy you
and will cut off every male in Ahabs line,
whether slave or freeman, in Israel.
I will make your house like that of Jeroboam, son of Nebat,
and like that of Baasha, son of Ahijah,
because of how you have provoked me by leading Israel into sin.
(Against Jezebel, too, the LORD declared,
The dogs shall devour Jezebel in the district of Jezreel.)
When one of Ahabs line dies in the city,
dogs will devour him;
when one of them dies in the field,
the birds of the sky will devour him.
Indeed, no one gave himself up to the doing of evil
in the sight of the LORD as did Ahab,
urged on by his wife Jezebel.
He became completely abominable by following idols,
just as the Amorites had done,
whom the LORD drove out before the children of Israel.When Ahab heard these words, he tore his garments
and put on sackcloth over his bare flesh.
He fasted, slept in the sackc...

Animals are Becoming Nocturnal to Avoid Contact with Humans, Says Study "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

By refusing to live and act in a sustainable way, humans have devastated planet Earth. Animals are not ignorant of this fact, which is why they are becoming increasingly nocturnal, according to a new study published in Science.

The research was led by Kaitlyn Gaynor, an ecologist at the University of California, Berkeley. Along with colleagues, she concluded that ordinary activities, such as hiking and camping, can scare animals as well as drive them to become more active during the evening.

Said Gaynor: It suggests that animals might be playing it safe around people. We may think that we leave no trace when were just hiking in the woods, but our mere presence can have lasting consequences.

For the study, Gaynor and associates analyzed 76 studies involving 62 species who inhabit six continents. Otters in Brazil, lions in Tanzania, coyotes in California, and tigers in Nepal were all included in the study. Phys reports:

Researchers compared how much time those creatures spent active at night under different types of human disturbance such as hunting, hiking and farming. On average, the team found that human presence triggered an increase of about 20 percent in nighttime activity, even in animal...

The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson My Latest for Splice Today "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

There would be no LGBTQ movement without Marsha P. Johnson. Together with Sylvia Rivera, she fought against the cops during the Stonewall riot, founded the Street Transvestites Action Revolutionaries (STAR) to keep trans people off the streets, and was a prominent AIDS activist. The NYPD ruled her 1992 death as a suicide, but everyone who knew her suspected she was murdered. Her case was never solved, but fellow trans activist Victoria Cruz investigated it herself in the 2017 Netflix documentary The Death and Life of Marsha P. Johnson.

Directed by David France, the film opens with archival footage of the memorial walk for Johnson down Christopher St. in New York City shortly after her body was found in the Hudson River, and then switches to the present day where Cruz and several other activists with the Anti-Violence Project (AVP) discuss the death of 21-year-old Brooklyn trans woman Islan Nettles. Cruz is about to retire after working with the AVP since 1997, but not until she finds out what happened to Johnson first. The film follows Cruz as she talks to Johnsons siblings, her former roommate Randy Wicker, several other LGBTQ activists who knew Johnson, and retired detectives gathering whatever information she can get ahold of that would provide some closure.

Chinas Pacific Islands Push Has the U.S. Worried "IndyWatch Feed War"

Little by little they are taking slices of our businesses, said Martyn Namorong, who campaigns to protect local jobs and communities as China ramps up infrastructure spending in the resource-rich nation, often bringing its own workforce. My people feel we cant compete.

The nation of 8 million people is the latest frontier in Beijings bid for global influence thats included building artificial reefs in the South China Sea, a military base in Africa and an ambitious trade-and-infrastructure plan spanning three continents.

Chinas thrust into the Pacific islands region, a collection of more than a dozen tiny nations including Fiji, Niue and Timor Leste scattered across thousands of miles of ocean, has the U.S. and its close ally Australia worried. The region played a key role in World War II and remains strategically important as Western powers seek to maintain open sea lines and stability. For Beijing, it offers raw materials, from gas to timber, and a clutch of countries who could voice support for its territorial claims.

Weve seen a huge surge in Chinas state-directed economic investment and mobilization of an enormous amount of capital in the Pacific which clearly has a strategic intent, said Eric B.

Movimiento magisterial chiapaneco: Una lucha contra la explotacin, el despojo y la represin "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

El magisterio democrtico estatal junto con sus compaer@s del nivel federal, tienen muy claro que la suya es una lucha digna y necesaria, contra la autodenominada reforma educativa a nivel federal, as como por sus demandas locales en defensa de la educacin pblica y de sus derechos laborales. Esto lo demostraron la maana de este sbado ante un desproporcionado operativo policiaco para evitar que se manifestaran al poniente de Tuxtla. Las y los educadores no se intimidaron, muy por el contrario de manera decidida llevaron a cabo su actividad de volanteo, recibiendo apoyo monetario y afectivo por parte de los automovilistas que salan e ingresaban de la capital chiapaneca.

Desde el pasado lunes 11 de junio, que el magisterio estatal inici el paro indefinido, las y los maestros disidentes continan la historia iniciada en el ao 2013, cuando despus de dcadas de dominio del sindicato oficialista (SNTE), comenzaron a organizarse desde las diversas regiones de la geografa chiapaneca, para defenderse de las polticas neoliberales de los gobiernos federal y estatal, mediante la autodenominada reforma educativa; logrando consolidar su organizacin en la Asamblea Estatal Democrtica (AED 40), siguiendo los 22 principios de la Coordinadora Nacional de la Trabajadores de la Educacin (CNTE).

En el paro de cuatro meses de 2016, las y los educadores estatales refrendaron su compromiso en defensa de la educacin en Chiapas y a nivel nacional, por las vas jurdicas, polticas y mediante el Proyecto Comunitario para la Escuela (PCE), propuesta paralela a los contenidos oficiales que busca un verdadero vnculo entre la escuela y la comunidad. Cinco aos de organizarse pueden parecer pocos, pero para las y los docentes la AED ha significado un arduo trabajo da con da. Se ha hecho camino al andar, recuerdan las y los educadores de diferentes generaciones desde sus campamentos al oriente del centro de Tuxtla.

El 16 de junio, a casi una semana de huelga, y de estar manifestndose de manera permanente en la capital chiapaneca, las y los mentores en resistencia saben que la jornada de lucha no ser fcil. Nos vemos en la imperiosa necesidad de emprender esta jornada de lucha, en la modalidad de paro indefinido, hasta ser atendidas y resueltas todas nuestras demandas, que sabemos de antemano estn al alcance de su mbito de accin, han expresado al ejecutivo estatal Velasco Coello, conocido en su sexenio por administras los diversos problemas de la entidad y no resolverlos.

Si el ejecutivo estatal contina con lo que los maestros en paro califican como cerrazn poltica, al no atender sus demandas, solo estara demostrando su desdn por la educacin en Chiapas, lo cual queda demostrado al no dar atencin inmediata a los daos causados en las escuelas por los sismos de septiembre pasado. Son evidentes las necesidades delas escuelas de todas las zo...

Global capitalism in Central Asia and competing economic imaginaries "IndyWatch Feed Politics.eu"

For the US, Russia and China, Central Asia is a space of competing economic influences.

Khan Shatyr entertainment centre. Photo CC BY 2.0: Ben Dalton / Flickr. Some rights reserved.The US, Russia and China have competing visions and strategies of economic development in Central Asia, partly in response to economic problems and contradictions in their own advanced and emerging capitalist economies. In seeking to regulate Central Asia, the major powers are also competing to shape global capitalism and the international order. Central Asia offers an array of economic opportunities for major powers, including access and control of valuable natural resources, favourable terms of trade and efficient trade routes.

In recent years, two economic regional integration initiatives have propelled Central Asia from the periphery to the centre in geopolitics. First, the Eurasian Economic Union (EEU) was established by Russia, Belarus and Kazakhstan in 2015, with Armenia and Kyrgyzstan joining later. The EEU introduces the free movement of goods, capital, labour and services, and provides for common policies in macroeconomic and industrial spheres. There are plans for greater economic integration and harmonisation, and for its expansion and cooperation with countries from South Asia and Middle East. It operates through supranational and intergovernmental institutions, and is largely modelled on the European Union.

Second, in 2013 President Xi Jinping of China proposed the Belt and Road Initiative (BRI) to create trade and infrastructure network connecting Asia with Europe and Africa along ancient trade routes, such as the land and maritime Silk Road. Since then, many Central and South Asian countries have signed cooperation agreements with China to invest in roads, railway...

How you can undermine the evil cabal "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Over the years, the description of the tyrants and psychopaths that so often occupy positions of power in our world has evolved, and today it is fashionable to refer to this nebulous group by using the term Evil Cabal.

Language is perhaps the most important device we have for creating reality, and just as George Orwell knew, the more linguistically vague, simplistic, ambiguous and nondescript the language, the more room there is to shape perception. This is called Newspeak, and in the case of the Evil Cabal, the term fails to fully describe our complex world, but succeeds tremendously in maintaining the prison of fear that actually inhibits freedom.

In a catch-all phrase like Evil Cabal, there really is little substance in the language to inspire meaningful action or reaction. In fact, the opposite is true. By generalizing the widespread depravity in the world with such a vague yet loaded term, the result can only be fear and inaction.

But, just for rhetorical purposes, lets suppose for a moment that the worlds troubles can indeed be wholly attributed to a singular, top-down, all-knowing, all-controlling evil cabal that has its wicked tentacles inserted into every facet of our lives. Lets imagine that every bit of the injustice and calamity we see is intentionally orchestrated and narrated by an untouchable group of all-mighty criminals.

If this is in fact the case, one very serious question emerges: What exactly are YOU going to do about it? 

My thoughts on this are expressed below, and are derived from two decades of peering deeply into the abyss of conspiracy fact and alternative history. Ive learned in time that such intense and singular focus on conspiracy and international wickedness is corrosive to the soul, inviting acrimony and triggering impotency into what should be the blessed, joyful gift of a life well lived.

How YOU Can Undermine the Evil Cabal

Firstly, understand that systems of political and economic control are actually more heavily dependent on the acquiescence, cooperation, and participation of many millions of people. They are much less dependent on brute force, even though the perception is that brute force controls everything. This notion is accurately presented by Larken Rose in his short animated presentation, ...

Can Great Tech Products Suffer From Poor Marketing? "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Image is everything in business. The right illustrations, logo, and stock images can speak volumes about the essence of who you are and what you do as a company. The old adage of a picture speaking a thousand words goes to show that this has been the case for a long time. As humans, we respond to images. If the history of art has thought us anything, it is that there is always an audience for bold and beautiful things to look at, once they come in the right frame.

As our brains are hardwired to judge on the visual aspects of a person, company, and their actions, we can be persuaded into purchasing products and services through the medium of advertising alone. Striking images can attract the eyes like almost nothing else. Pictures from Focused Collection are a strong example of a company who further this point. For almost every adult over a certain age will tell you, sometimes impulse buys happen. The reason for our last-minute splurges and spontaneous purchases quite often come down to the image within the advertisement.

The importance of imagery to a business, therefore, cannot be underestimated. Procuring the right images ones which will do a brand good rather than harm is crucial. You want to stand out from the cacophony of advertisements and marketing material out there and sometimes, even if it is against our inner-nature, we must learn to adopt the understanding that those that shout loudest get the most attention.

The Dominant Sense

For those of us blessed with the wonders of good eyesight will know, the majority of things which our human minds are attracted to come via our vision. It is the most dominant of our senses and the one which forces the brain to work harder than any other. In fact, our eyesight is accountable for up to half of the human brains functioning powers, which, in turn, means that we are designed to respond to images.

Although the voracious reader may argue with this, text can only go so far to stimulate the human mind. It is the photos and images which resonate on a deeper cognitive level and this is not som...

Google to Fix Location Data Leak in Google Home, Chromecast "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Google in the coming weeks is expected to fix a location privacy leak in two of its most popular consumer products. New research shows that Web sites can run a simple script in the background that collects precise location data on people who have a Google Home or Chromecast device installed anywhere on their local network.

Craig Young, a researcher with security firm Tripwire, said he discovered an authentication weakness that leaks incredibly accurate location information about users of both the smart speaker and home assistant Google Home, and Chromecast, a small electronic device that makes it simple to stream TV shows, movies and games to a digital television or monitor.

Young said the attack works by asking the Google device for a list of nearby wireless networks and then sending that list to Googles geolocation lookup services.

An attacker can be completely remote as long as they can get the victim to open a link while connected to the same Wi-Fi or wired network as a Google Chromecast or Home device, Young told KrebsOnSecurity. The only real limitation is that the link needs to remain open for about a minute before the attacker has a location. The attack content could be contained within malicious advertisements or even a tweet.

It is common for Web sites to keep a record of the numeric Internet Protocol (IP) address of all visitors, and those addresses can be used in combination with online geolocation tools to glean information about each visitors hometown or region. But this type of location information is often quite imprecise. In many cases, IP geolocation offers only a general idea of where the IP address may be based geographically.

This is typically not the case with Googles geolocation data, which includes comprehensive maps of wireless network names around the world, linking each individual Wi-Fi network to a corresponding physical location. Armed with this data, Google can very often determine a users location to within a few feet (particularly in densely populated areas), by triangulating the user between several nearby mapped Wi-Fi access points.

Fatalities vs False Positives: The Lessons from the Tesla and Uber Crashes "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

In one bad week in March, two people were indirectly killed by automated driving systems. A Tesla vehicle drove into a barrier, killing its driver, and an Uber vehicle hit and killed a pedestrian crossing the street. The National Transportation Safety Boards preliminary reports on both accidents came out recently, and these bring us as close as were going to get to a definitive view of what actually happened. What can we learn from these two crashes?

There is one outstanding factor that makes these two crashes look different on the surface: Teslas algorithm misidentified a lane split and actively accelerated into the barrier, while the Uber system eventually correctly identified the cyclist crossing the street and probably had time to stop, but it was disabled. You might say that if the Tesla driver died from trusting the system too much, the Uber fatality arose from trusting the system too little.

But youd be wrong. The forward-facing radar in the Tesla should have prevented the accident by seeing the barrier and slamming on the brakes, but the Tesla algorithm places more weight on the cameras than the radar. Why? For exactly the same reason that the Uber emergency-braking system was turned off: there are too many false positives and the result is that far too often the cars brake needlessly under normal driving circumstances.

The crux of the self-driving at the moment is precisely figuring out when to slam on the brakes and when not. Brake too often, and the passengers are annoyed or the car gets rear-ended. Brake too infrequently, and the consequences can be worse. Indeed, this is the central problem of autonomous vehicle safety, and neither Tesla nor Uber have it figured out yet.

Tesla Cars Drive Into Stopped Objects

Lets start with the Tesla crash. Just before the crash, the car was following behind another using its traffic-aware cruise control which attempts to hold a given speed subject to leaving appropriate following distance to the car ahead of it. As the Tesla approached an exit ramp, the car ahead kept right and the Tesla moved left, got confused by the lane markings on the lane split, and accelerated into its programmed speed of 75 mph (120 km/h) without noticing the barrier in front of it. Put simply, the algorithm got things wrong and drove into a lane divider at full speed.

May 23, 2018  Every so often an environmentally friendly building gives us a glimpse of the low-carbon future so many climate plans envision. With the development of Clichy-Batignolles, the city of Paris has created a groundbreaking eco-village filled with such buildings. Begun in 2002, the massive redevelopment project is about 30 percent complete and is slated to be finished in 2020. In 2007, Paris became one of the first municipalities in the world to adopt a climate action plan, setting goals for greenhouse gas emission reductions above and beyond those outlined by the European Union. Employing virtually all the tools in the green builders toolkit, Clichy-Batignolles aims to be tangible evidence of the citys commitment to reducing its carbon footprint as well as an experimental laboratory for testing whats possible in climate-sensitive redevelopment.

The Migrant Crisis Is About More Than Just Kids "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Yesterday on Face the Nation, I responded to questions about the migrant separations from their children under the Trump Administrations policy announced last month by trying to shift the focus to what drives these migrations in the first place something that cant be addressed by a simple band-aid piece of legislation paving the way for more lax border requirements.

Heres the video, and the transcript.

I certainly agree with Jeff [Goldberg] when it comes to the ability of the administration to change this. But the focus on these kids, while I certainly understand it from a media perspective, is ignoring what is really driving these factors.

Why do we have a 200 percent year over year increase in the number of people coming across? Why do we have the biggest month to month increase between February and March that weve seen since 2011?

And the answer to that is the activity of the Mexican cartels, who use these migrants as essentially a distraction to clog systems so they are able to funnel drugs across the border.

In the last week, we saw two more political candidates in Mexico murdered in broad daylight. One a mayor running for Congress right across the Rio Grande. Another mayor who, you know, has been a reformer, fighting against the cartels. That brings the total to 113 political candidates in Mexico who have been murdered by the cartels in less than a year.

Mexicos political, violent situation is something that is not going to be solved when it comes to driving these types of migrations. And thats going to require things that Im not sure the Congress is really willing to grasp the kind of support and diplomacy and activity to prevent our southern neighbor from becoming a failed state.

At the break, several people expressed surprise at these numbers but they are true. Here are just some of the stories. A candidate for town councilor, Liliana Garca, was killed and found dead in a creek bed. A candidate for municipal council in Juchitn, Pamela Tern, was killed, along with her father and photographer. A leader for the Institutional Revolutionary Party (PRI) in Guerrero State, Paula Gutirrez Morales, was shot on a bus in front of passengers. A candidate for local congress in Piedras Negras, Fernando Purn, was shot and killed while taking a selfie. A mayoral candidate, Alejandro Chavez Zavala, was shot and killed last week.

That brings us to a total of 113 Mexican candidates for office dead since Sep...

US Attack Syrian Army Position, Death Toll Rises to 40 "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Once again, the US appears to be baiting the Syrian Army and Russia into a shooting war, and it wouldnt be the first time. 

Back on September 17 2016, the US-led Coalition led airstrikes near the Deir ez-Zor Airport in eastern Syria lasting one hour and killing between 90 and 106 Syrian Army soldiers and wounded 110 more. The US claimed they were aiming at an ISIS target, but in reality that US strike allowed ISIS to move in from the surrounding hills and retake a key position which they held for another year.

In total there have been at least 12 such attacks by the US against Syria, and if confirmed, this latest incident will no doubt escalate tensions between the two countries, and is sure to raise further concerns from Syrias strategic partners about the continued illegal US occupation in Syria.

Al-Masdar News reports.

BEIRUT, LEBANON (3:00 P.M.) A Syrian military source in Damascus informed Al-Masdar News this afternoon that the death toll from the alleged U.S. attack on the armys positions in Albukamals countryside has risen significantly.

According to the source, at least 40 soldiers from the Syrian Arab Army and Iraqi paramilitary forces were killed as a result of these airstrikes.

The source said the majority of the dead were Syrian Arab Army soldiers that were deployed to the Al-Harri front to protect against any potential Islamic State (ISIS) assault.

Furthermore, the source said the Syrian military believes the attack was carried out by the U.S. Coalition due to the location from where the aircraft came from in eastern Syria.

In response to these allegations, the Pentagon has denied carrying out this deadly attack in eastern Syria.

This is the second time in three weeks that the Syrian Army has...

Honeybees Can Understand A Complex Mathematical Concept, Study Proves "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

By Markab Algedi via The Mind Unleashed

A couple days ago, a quite interesting study was published that claims to identify the fact that bees are capable of understanding the mathematical concept of zero.

The study reportedly confirms that the honeybee is fully capable of understanding the quantitative value of nothing. Not only that, but they are gifted with the ability to correctly place zero at the beginning of a line of sequential numbers: they can understand zero, one, two, ect.

Of all insects out there, this is supposed to be the first concrete evidence to prove that the brain of an insect has the capability of understanding the concept of zero. This discovery has implications for the understanding of insect brains, but it also has implications about the evolution of complex number processing in living beings, according to articles reporting on the study.

Scientists say there are four distinct stages of understanding the concept of zero in both animal learning, and human culture, psychology, and history.

Stage one is a being understanding that zero means the absence of something, such as zero food, or zero air. A simple amount of visual processing ability can probably ensure a...

Google Is Training Machines to Predict When a Patient Will Die "IndyWatch Feed War"

AI advances by the Medical Brain team could help the internet giant finally break into the health-care business

June 18, 2018, 5:00 AM EDT
Created by illustrator Maria Chimishkyan for Bloomberg Prognosis

A woman with late-stage breast cancer came to a city hospital, fluids already flooding her lungs. She saw two doctors and got a radiology scan. The hospitals computers read her vital signs and estimated a 9.3 percent chance she would die during her stay.

Then came Googles turn. An new type of algorithm created by the company read up on the woman 175,639 data points and rendered its assessment of her death risk: 19.9 percent. She passed away in a matter of days.

The harrowing account of the unidentified womans death was published by Google in May in research highlighting the health-care potential of neural networks, a form of artificial intelligence software thats particularly good at using data to automatically learn and improve. Google had created a tool that could forecast a host of patient outcomes, including how long people may stay in hospitals, their odds of re-admission and chances they will soon die.

What impressed medical experts most was Googles ability to sift through data previously out of reach: notes buried in PDFs or scribbled on old charts. The neural net gobbled up all this unruly information then spat out predictions. And it did it far faster and more accurately than existing techniques. Googles system even showed which reco...

Coalition Ignores Famine Warnings and Continues Assault on Yemen as Critics Question US Complicity "IndyWatch Feed Africa"

Ignoring international aid groups warnings that an attack on the Yemeni city of Hodeida, which is held by Houthi rebels, could exacerbate hunger in an impoverished and war-torn nation already on the brink of famine, Saudi-led U.S.-backed coalition forces continued a sweeping assault on the Red Sea port city Saturday, reportedly seizing control of an airport.

Since the fighting started earlier this week, thousands of Hodeidas 600,000 civilians have evacuated and hundreds of people have been killed. The port city is the main conduit through which about 70 percent of international aid reaches Yemenis, many of whom are battling starvation and outbreaks of infectious diseases such as cholera.

The Norwegian Refugee Councils office in Yemen told Reuters that humanitarian agencies cannot currently access areas south of the city where people are most likely to have been injured, affected, and displaced, leaving us without a clear picture of needs.

The lack of humanitarian assistance, following suspension of aid programs and with limited NGO staff on the ground while a military offensive is ongoing, will have severe consequences on a region already facing restrictions on the import and internal transportation of vital supplies, including medicines, food, and fuel, Frederic Pelat, head of Mdecins Sans Frontires mission in Yemen, warned Thursday. Yemenis living in the northern parts of the country depend on vital supplies that pass through Hodeidas port.

Benjamin Fulford: Rebirth of Manchuria plotted as Europe faces summer of discontent "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

By Benjamin Fulford

Once again the world faces a long hot summer of discontent, with the major action likely to be in Europe and East Asia this year.  The EU is likely to experience regime change due to popular anger as warm weather brings in yet another massive wave of mostly male Muslim immigrants.  In the Far East, the summit meeting between U.S. President Donald Trump and North Korean strongman Kim Jong-un has led to serious plotting to revive a Manchurian empire straddling from Mongolia to Northern China to Korea to Japan, according to multiple independent sources, including CIA and Japanese military intelligence.

Lets start with the situation in Europe, where governments in Austria, Italy, Sweden, and elsewhere are waking up to the fact that the so-called refugee crisis is actually a Muslim invasion.  This is no exaggeration, since over 60% of the roughly five million refugees who have arrived in Europe since 2013 are men.  Put another way, an army of three million military-age Muslim men has invaded Europe by stealth means.  These statistics come from Eurostat via Wikipedia.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_migrant_crisis

This is not just a random occurrence, either.  The refugees are being handed false papers;  for example, Afghan and Pakistani men are being given travel expenses and allowances, as well as fake Syrian passports by the P2 Freemason self-appointed social engineers who are behind this crisis.  As we have mentioned before, we were told when we visited the P2 in Italy a few years ago that their plan was to force Islam and Christianity to fight each other in order to merge the two into a single one-world religion controlled by them.

This is the background to a series of news events that popped up last week as the warm weather began in earnest.  First of all, we have the new Italian government getting into a war of words with France after deciding to stop admitting boats filled with refugees.
https://www.yahoo.com/news/italy-france-tensions-spiral-over-rejected-migrant-ship-133857517.html

Then we have the government of Austria kicking out imams and mobilizing its border police as a wave of 80,000 migrants approaches its border.

The Israel Security Agencys report on terror attacks (Hebrew) during May 2018 shows that throughout the month a total of 365 incidents took place: 139 in Judea & Samaria, 34 in Jerusalem and 192 in the Gaza Strip/Sinai sector.

In Judea & Samaria and Jerusalem the agency recorded 153 attacks with petrol bombs, eleven attacks using improvised explosive devices (IEDs), four shooting attacks, four arson attacks and one attack with a stone slab. Attacks recorded in the Gaza Strip sector included 118 attacks with petrol bombs, twelve shooting attacks, 12 attacks using IEDs, one grenade attack and two arson attacks. Forty-five separate incidents of projectile fire were recorded (41 involving rockets and 4 involving mortars) with 188 launches.

One soldier Staff Sgt Ronen Lubarsky died two days after being critically injured when a marble slab was thrown at his head on May 24th. The BBC News website did not produce any reporting at all on that incident or on an earlier one in which one member of the security forces was wounded in an IED/stoning attack on May 9th in Abu Dis. Three additional members of the security forces and one civilian were wounded by mortar fire from the Gaza Strip on May 29th with the BBC mentioning three of those four injuries.

Visitors to the BBC News website saw no reporting at all on any of the incidents in Jerusalem and Judea & Samaria.

This is why religions were created...the mere act of observation {aka: BELIEF}, can change our reality. We are plasma...our heart/brain {belief}, uses scalar wave energies, VERY, VERY POWERFUL! Nikola Tesla said it would only take about 10,000 people, at the same time, thinking with heart/brain, to create an impenetrable earth barrier, that NOTHING could get through. Just imagine what our world could/would be like, if we stop believing in and praying to the so-called gods, that have been created by the same Annunaki, the same Annunaki that has given us ALL of the different religions. They need us, to believe/worship them as god/gods, because of our spirits, the connection between our brains and the "brain" in our hearts, that's what creates the scalar energies...and that's what CREATES!!!

Just the mere act of "observation" {BELIEF} changes the behavior of electrons...WOW!!!
