Planning Your Property "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

In this one-day intensive course we invite you to take a fresh look at ways of determining the potential of a piece of land (large or small) and at the elements and processes which lead to a sustainable design.

The course will help you to assess land and plan the development of a property to suit your life goals. Well explore the identification of personal aims, land ownership options, designing for sustained productivity, soil, water, fencing, machinery, taxation management and finance as well as the choice of crops and animals and how to rebuild lost ecosystems.

Bring along your plans and, if relevant, soil and water samples to test and discuss in an interactive learning environment.

This is a good course for those who may be considering a full Permaculture design course but want a taste of what it would be like.

You may like to read this article for some hints about property design.

Fruit & Nut Growing "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Growing your own fresh fruit and nuts has to be one of the most satisfying things you can do in your own backyard or property! What's more, South Australias Mediterranean climate enables us to grow the most intensely flavoured and nutritious tree crops in the world.

This one-day workshop will explore different varieties of stone fruit, citrus, olives, pecan nuts, figs, apples, pistachios and as many other crops as you desire. We will also discuss preserving techniques to stock your pantry for supply through the seasons.

The course will develop skills required to plan, establish and manage fruit and nut trees in a garden or plantation.

Using demonstrations, practicals, walks and talks, we'll examine the selection of varieties, pollination requirements, planting material (grafting and other propagation techniques), orchard establishment, tree shaping, irrigation, soil fertility and pest management.

You are welcome to bring plans of orchards you are planning and soil samples for testing.

Also see our fact sheets for information about some of the wonderful species we can grow in Mediterranean climates as well as growing fruit and nuts.

Permaculture Design Certificate (PDC) "IndyWatch Feed Pacific"

Why study permaculture?

Population growth and consumption levels are pushing our Planet towards a catastrophic environmental tipping point. Permaculture offers a way that we, as individuals and communities, can take control of our future and live sustainably.

Permaculture is a design system which draws upon the great truths of traditional knowledge, modern scientific understandings and the ethics of a peaceful and democratic society. The approach was first developed in Australia in the late 70s by Bill Mollison and David Holmgren and is now taught in over 100 countries. Since then hundreds of thousands of people have graduated from Design Courses and are using this tool to build resilience and diversity into their lives at home & in the office.

Permaculture can be employed by anyone, whatever profession or skill, on any scale, from balconies and backyards to farms, factories, businesses, schools and cities anywhere on the planet and in any climate. It offers a sustainable landscape, dignified human-scale living and self-reliant children who have the confidence to design a sustainable future for themselves.

It is based on three ethics: Care of the Earth, Care of Community and Acceptance of personal responsibility for consumption and population. Many principles, technologies and strategies have evolved to make permaculture one of the most accessible and dynamic solutions to the issues we face in the 21st Century.

About this course 

April 25-29, May 11-13 & 26-27: 10 days spread out over three teaching blocks

This 10 day intensive design course will present you with an opportunity to consider your life in a new light and give you increased confidence and many skills needed to design a sustainable and meaningful place for your future.

You will work with a group of motivated fellow students with diverse skills and backgrounds and learn through lectures, practical activities, small group work, case studies, DVDs, field trips and games. In addition to our experienced teaching team, you will have access to a wide range of printed and digital resources.

The extended format of the course is for busy people, designed to cause minimum disruption to other parts of your life. It will allow you to absorb and practise skills from one learning block before moving on to the next. However the residential aspect is important, as it helps you become fully immersed in learning about sustainable living.

The first teaching block of 5 days starts Wednesday April 25th, which is Anzac Day and a Public holiday. Sessions are scheduled on most evenings, but we finish at 5pm on the last day of each block. There are 3 days in total which are weekday working days; these may need some planning to have off.

Director of the Peace Corps: Who Is Jody Olsen? "IndyWatch Feed"

Josephine King Jody Olsen, who was a Peace Corps volunteer in Sousse, Tunisia, teaching English from 1966 to 1968, was nominated January 3, 2018, to be the organizations director.


Olsen was born in Utah and moved to Maryland in 1959 after her father, David King, was elected to Congress as a Democrat. Her grandfather, William King, represented Utah in the Senate from 1917 to 1941. Olsen attended Walter Johnson High School in Bethesda, graduating in 1961 before returning to her native state to study at the University of Utah. She earned a B.S. in sociology and a teaching certificate in 1965. Olsen later earned a masters in social work (1972) and a Ph.D. (1979) from the University of Maryland.


After graduating from Utah, Olsen and her then-husband, Robert Olsen, left for Tunisia as Peace Corps volunteers, with Jody Olsen teaching English during her two-year stint. After earning her masters degree, Olsen in 1974 was named director of the University of Maryland Center on Aging.


Olsen returned to the Peace Corps, this time as the country director for Togo, in 1979. In 1981, she was named regional director for North Africa, the Near East, Asia and the Pacific, holding that post until 1984. Olsen left the Peace Corps again, this time to become vice president of the student exchange group Youth for Understanding. But in 1989, Olsen was back at the Peace Corps, this time as its chief of staff.


In 1992, Olsen was named executive director for the Council for International Exchange of Scholars (CIES) and managed the Fulbright Senior Scholar Program, which facilitated college faculty exchanges. She left CIES in 1997 to become senior vice president of the Academy for Educational Development, a development consultancy. Olsen handled international training services, management development services, computer and systems services and higher education management services for the organization.


Olsen in 2002 was named deputy director of the Peace Corps, holding that position until the early days of the Obama administration, and served briefly as acting director in 2006 and again in 2009. She also served for a time as acting country director for Kazakhstan.


Olsen has been a visiting professor at the University of Maryland School of Social Work in Baltimore since 2010. She also was director of the Center for Global Education Initiatives and spent several summers heading research projects in Malawi, El Salv...

Outrage and conspiracy claims as Indonesia, Malaysia react to EU ban on palm oil in biofuels "IndyWatch Feed Enviro"

JAKARTA Officials in Indonesia and Malaysia, the worlds biggest producers of palm oil, have lambasted the European Parliaments decision to phase out the commodity from motor fuels over the next three years due to environmental concerns. Indonesian Trade Minister Enggartiasto Lukita said Thursday that the vote to reduce to zero the contribution from biofuels and bioliquids produced from palm oil by 2021 was misguided and unfair, given that Jakarta had taken steps to address the environmental impact of the palm oil industry. They cant eliminate palm oil exports so easily because demand is very high, he told reporters at the Indonesian parliament. If its suddenly stopped, then what about Unilever detergent [which uses palm oil]? We dont want to be the target of a negative campaign all the time. Enggartiasto urged the European Union to open a dialogue with the Indonesian government over its concerns about the impacts of the palm oil industry on the environment.

The drainage canals were dug in order to prepare the land for planting with oil palm, but the practice renders the land vulnerable to catching fire. Photo by Rhett A. Butler/Mongabay. Ramifications for palm oil producers The trade ministers remarks came a day after the European Parliament voted on targets to cap crop-based biofuels, which follows the parliaments overwhelming decision last year to ban the use of vegetable oils in biofuels.

Apple nimmt Trumps Steuerdeal an und bringt ihre im ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Apple nimmt Trumps Steuerdeal an und bringt ihre im Ausland lagernde Kohle in die USA, zahlt dafr dann 38 Milliarden Dollar (regulr wren 88 Milliarden fllig gewesen).

Ich frage mich gerade, ob das jetzt heit, dass Trump am Ende doch ein guter "deal maker" ist. Das ist zwar ein groer Nachlass, aber Apple stand ja nicht unter Druck, das Geld berhaupt jemals in die USA zurckzuholen.

Das ist brigens eine effektive Steuerrate von 15,5% fr Apple.

Man kann das natrlich auch andersherum sehen. Apple hat gekriegt, was sie eh die ganze Zeit wollten, und Trump ist eingeknickt. Liegt im Auge des Betrachters. Fr Trump ist alleine die Schlagzeile natrlich ein groer Sieg.

Diese digitale Eiterbeule "elektronische Anwaltspostfach" blubbert weiter vor sich hin. Money Quote:

Eine detaillierte unabhngige Prfung der zahlreichen anderen Sicherheitslcken, insbesondere der zurzeit nicht vorhandenen Ende-zu-Ende-Verschlsselung, scheint die BRAK nicht fr notwendig zu erachten.

Antworten auf die zahlreichen weiteren Fragen, die die Anwlte in den vergangenen Wochen stellten, gibt die BRAK weiterhin nicht.

Aus der Wortwahl glaube ich schlieen zu knnen, dass die Anwlte mit der Gesamtsituation eher unzufrieden sind :-)

Aber der Hammer ist folgendes:

Die BRAK bleibt nach Angaben von Kury dabei, dass sie im Jahr 2015 mit der Idee an den Chaos Computer Club herangetreten sei, das beA-System im Rahmen eines Camps testen zu lassen. Sie habe die Idee nicht weiterverfolgt, nachdem der CCC nicht verbindlich zugesagt habe, ihr die Testergebnisse zur Verfgung zu stellen, gibt Kury die BRAK wieder. Nach LTO-Informationen stammte ein Vorschlag, den CCC (der ohnehin keine Sicherheits-Siegel vergibt) sich beim Camp das beA einmal ansehen zu lassen, dagegen von einem Dritten, der sich anbot, einen Kontakt zu vermitteln. Dieser Vorschlag soll nach Angaben gut informierter Kreise von der BRAK abgelehnt worden sein, weil Mitglieder des CCC nicht bereit gewesen sein sollen, Verschwiegenheit ber die Ergebnisse zuzusagen.
Danke, lieber CCC. Aus meiner Sicht ist offensichtlich, dass der CCC nicht eingebunden werden sollte, um die Sicherheit des Produktes zu prfen oder zu verbessern, sondern damit er per NDA stillgehalten werden kann. Was fr eine bodenlose Frechheit!

Liebe Leser, heute ist ein besonderer Anlass. Ein Tag, der in die Geschichte eingehen wird. Die SPD (!) hat einen Rstungsexportstopp fr am Jemenkrieg beteiligte Nationen durchgesetzt.

Die SPD. Ja! Die SPD! Nein, wirklich!

Es geht um nicht weniger als eine 180-Grad-Wende, von der nahezu alle groen Importlnder betroffen sind.
Wer htte das gedacht?

Hey, SPD, vielleicht knnen wir jetzt auch mal die Bundeswehr aus dem Ausland zurckholen, und nicht mehr an Kriegen in anderen Lndern teilnehmen? Und Ramstein zumachen? Die Richtung stimmt jedenfalls schonmal. Weiter so!

Lacher am Rande:

Fr neue Geschlossenheit im SPD-Team sorgte dann eher unfreiwillig die Kanzlerin, als sie der SPD vorhielt, sie habe doch bei der Ausrstung der Peschmerga im Nordirak auch kein Problem mit der Lieferung von Waffen in ein Kriegsgebiet gehabt.

Neulich so: Parteien tricksen, um AfD-Mann im Parlamentarischen Kontrollgremium zu verhindern.

Heute so: AfD so: Trickserei zum rgern er anderen? Knnen wir auch!

Die AfD hat im Bundestag eine Durchzhlung der anwesenden Abgeordneten erzwungen, und dabei kam VLLIG BERRASCHEND raus, dass zu wenige da sind und der Bundestag gar nicht beschlussfhig ist. Daraufhin musste die Sitzung abgebrochen werden.

Brller am Rande:

SPD und Grne werfen den Rechtspopulisten Trickserei vor.
Oh die Schmerzen! Es tut so weh!

Update: brigens, als Kontext: Die Geschftsordnung des Bundestags bietet reichlich Mglichkeiten fr solche und hnliche Sabotage. Die anderen Parteien machen sich gerade Sorgen, weil die AfD doch einige Mitarbeiter gewinnen konnte, die Erfahrung haben und diese Mglichkeiten kennen. Und unter dem Strich kann das sogar positiv fr uns werden, weil wie bisher nachts um halb drei Gesetze ohne Debatte durchwinken geht dann vermutlich nicht mehr. Bisher gibt es da so Gentlemen's Agreements zwischen den Parteien, dass niemand solche nchtlichen Stunts pullt, weil man das am nchsten Morgen mit einem Gesetz rckabwickeln knnte und das nur Zeit verplempert. Aber wenn die anderen die AfD eh die ganze Zeit blo sabotieren, gibt es fr die AfD nicht viel Grund, sich an solche Agreements zu halten. Das ist sozusagen eine selbst eingebrockte Suppe, die die jetzt auslffeln mssen.

Ich hatte krzlich ein Video mit Jordan Peterson verlinkt, ... "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

Ich hatte krzlich ein Video mit Jordan Peterson verlinkt, und der hat einen Haufen Videos online. Einige von denen fand ich hochinteressant, insbesondere weil seine Prmissen und Schlsse an einigen Schlsselstellen mir sehr fremd sind. Er vertritt beispielsweise die These, dass strukturierte Religion (die katholische Kirche) eine notwendige Lcke fllt, und wenn in der Gesellschaft der Atheismus zunimmt, dass die Lcke von anderen Kult-Handlungen gefllt wird, und wir unter dem Strich schlechter dastehen als vorher.

Peterson hat unter anderem Vorlesungen von sich auf Youtube verffentlicht, und deckt von Lebenshilfe (was ich als Selbsthilfe-Ratschlge aus Ratgeber-Bchern im Grabbelkasten neben der Kasse im Buchhandel klassifizieren wrde) ber Kunstgeschichte und Philosophie ein sehr breites Spektrum ab.

Peterson hat sich aber mit seinem Widerstand gegen ein Gesetz in Kanada Feinde gemacht, das ihm vorschreibt, mit welchen Worten er Transgender-Menschen ansprechen soll. Da wurde er Hardcore-Free-Speech-Advokat und wurde bissig (weil er fand, dass das in einem Gesetz nichts zu suchen hat, und kein Gesetz vorschreiben darf, welche Wrter wir benutzen, nicht weil er was gegen die Pronomen hatte) und seit dem verfolgt ihn ein Lynchmob. Ein paar Blogger in den USA haben ihn dann auch mal interviewt, aber der war bisher nur auf der anderen Seite des Atlantik aktiv. Bis jetzt. Jetzt hat ihn Channel 4 interviewt, das ist der grte Privatfernsehkanal in Grobritannien. Und dieses halbstndige Interview ist eine hervorragende bung in Medienkompetenz und Journalismus. Ich wrde sogar soweit gehen, dass man das jedem Journalisten in der Ausbildung zeigen sollte.

Anlass fr seinen Besuch in UK ist wohl ein neues Buch, fr das er jetzt die Werbetrommel rhrt. Aber fr mich ist das ein Zeichen, dass diese gesamte hasserfllte Lynchmob-Gemengelage jetzt rberschwappt aus Amerika. Bisher konnte man sich ja ein bisschen zurcklehnen und sich einreden, das sei blo ein Problem an US-amerikanischen Universitten. Sowas wie das Google-Memo betraf uns hier in Europa bisher nicht so. Das ist jetzt glaube ich vorbei.

Bei der BBC im Radio war Peterson auch. Es wirkt so, als htten die Feministen spontan eine Warteschlange gebildet, um sich an ihm abzuarbeiten.

Jedenfalls, warum ich das Channel-4-Video empfehle: Das ist einer der wenigen mir bekannten Flle, wo ein Akademiker, ber dessen Arbeit berichtet wird, daneben sitzt und Gelegenheit hat, jeder Falschdarstellung direkt zu widersprechen. Journalismus versucht hufig, komplexe Zusammenhnge auf einfache Formeln runterzubrechen, damit das Publikum dem folgen kann. Typische journalistische Berichterstattung ber Forschungsergebnisse sind aber praktisch immer falsch, weil Dinge...

Individuals against individualism: an anarchist paradox "IndyWatch Feed Europe"

One of the most striking features of todays Western capitalist society is the dominance of what we usually call individualism.

We live in a me culture, where, it seems, nobody has the ability to see beyond the end of their own all-important nose.

Everybody is jostling for attention, bombarding the world with accounts of their meals, their coffee breaks and their shopping, frantically sharing the selfies they have taken of the most significant person in their life.

We seem to have collectively swallowed the neoliberal lie that there is no such thing as society and we now see simply an accumulation of individuals.

House Spending Bill Changes Law to Let Trump Admin Secretly Shift Intelligence Money (Jimmy)

The author writes, Since 1947, section 504 of the National Security Act has mandated that the administration inform Congress if it intends to shift money from one intelligence project to another, if the new project has not been authorized by Congress. That notification can be and almost always is done in secret, but it is at least a minimal check on executive power.

Is Trump Using the Digital Shredder? (Dan)

A judge recently heard a case brought against the Trump administration for their staffs use of encrypted messaging apps.

While administrations are not legally forced to keep all records, the suit argues use of encrypted apps does not allow the discretion of choosing what to keep and what not.

Explosive, Shocking And Alarming FISA Memo Set To Rock DC, End Mueller Investigation "IndyWatch Feed World"

Russia gate

All hell is breaking loose in Washington D.C. after a four-page memo detailing extensive FISA court abuse was made available to the entire House of Representatives Thursday. The contents of the memo are so explosive, says Journalist Sara Carter, that it could lead to the removal of senior officials in the FBI and the Department of Justice and the end of Robert Muellers special counsel investigation.

These sources say the report is explosive, stating they would not be surprised if it leads to the end of Robert Muellers Special Counsel investigation into President Trump and his associates. Sara Carter

A source close to the matter tells Fox News that the memo details the Intelligence Committees oversight work for the FBI and Justice, including the controversy over unmasking and FISA surveillance. An educated guess by anyone whos been paying attention for the last year leads to the obvious conclusion that the report reveals extensive abuse of power and highly illegal collusion between the Obama administration, the FBI, the DOJ and the Clinton Campaign against Donald Trump and his team during and after the 2016 presidential election.

Lawmakers who have seen the memo are calling for its immediate release, while the phrases explosive, shocking, troubling, and alarming have all been used in all sincerity. One congressman even likened the reports details to KGB activity in Russia. It is so alarming the American people have to see this, Ohio Rep. Jim Jordan told Fox NewsIts troubling. It is shocking, North Carolina Rep. Mark Meadows said. Part of me wishes that I didnt read it because I dont want to believe that those kinds of things could be happening in this country that I call home and love so much.

Anarchists: Government Shutdown Doesn't Go Far Enough : Make the Shutdown Comprehensive and Permanent "IndyWatch Feed War"

Once again, the threat of a government shutdown looms over the capital. Politicians exchange barbs, pundits wag their fingers and wring their hands, and the rest of us get up and go to work like we do every day. The news anchors demand to know: whose fault is it? What labyrinthine eleventh-hour compromise will they devise to avoid it? The rest of the nation yawns with indifference.

But we want answers! What if the government does shut down? Who will funnel our taxable income to military contractors? Who will tap our phones and read our email? Who will raid 7-Elevens and deport people? Who will indoctrinate our children? Who will stop people from driving while black? Who will build the wall?

It doesnt sound all that bad, actually. Unfortunately, the shutdown theyre talking about wont interrupt any of those things. Compared to what this country needs, its just a bit of theatrics.

So heres a different proposal for how to respond to the imminent shutdown of the US government. Lets make it comprehensive and permanent.

What better way to cut through partisan gridlock than by abolishing both parties outright? Seriously, what have they ever done for us? Two gangs of thieves and swindlers competing to boss us around and bleed us dry. Its hard to imagine a single problem that any of them can resolve better than we could on our own. They themselves are responsible for most of the issues they claim to address.

In recent years, societies around the world have discovered that the absence of a functioning government has produced remarkably little change in their daily lives. Since its prime minister quit a year ago, Northern Ireland has functioned without its elected assembly doing a thing. In Belgium, in 2010 and 2011, 589 days passed without the establishment of a government with no noticeable change in everyday life for most Belgians. Similar interludes went by in Spain and Germany with similarly insignificant consequences.

This goes to show how much of a joke democracy is in postmodern capitalism. Cybernetic bureaucracies keep capital and...


Artificial Intelligence  Extermination of Humanity "IndyWatch Feed World"


Artificial Intelligence - Extermination of Humanity | robot-artificial-intelligence | Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Society Special Interests

The confusion about AI stems from the different perceptions of exactly what it means. A widely accepted definition indicates that Artificial Intelligence is the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. The far more exoteric interpretations of its meaning can be speculated ad infinitum. Despite this lack of consensus the implications from the effect of AI upon humanity is incontestable. Everyone is familiar with the understanding of components that make up the human species, but who among us can guarantee that the consistent nature of man will continue into the future?

Dylan Love wrote back in 2014 the essay, By 2045 The Top Species Will No Longer Be Humans, And That Could Be A Problem that cited the words of Louis Del Monte, physicist, entrepreneur, and author of The Artificial Intelligence Revolution.

Today theres no legislation regarding how much intelligence a machine can have, how interconnected it can be. If that continues, look at the exponential trend. We will reach the singularity in the timeframe most experts predict. From that point on youre going to see that the top species will no longer be humans, but machines.

A Cover Up Turns 50: Unpopular Reflections on the MLK Assassination "IndyWatch Feed World"

A Cover Up Turns 50: Unpopular Reflections on the MLK Assassination | martin-luther-king-jr | Propaganda Sleuth Journal Special Interests US News

By: George Payne | 

Not enough Americans know that in 1999 a jury in a civil suit brought by the family of the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr., ruled that a retired Memphis cafe owner was part of a conspiracy in his 1968 assassination.

During the trial, which received almost no media attention, the legal team representing the King family also implicated the U.S. intelligence apparatus. Among the startling and provocative assertions made in the courtroom, included the claim that the U.S. 111th Military Intelligence Group were at Dr. Kings location during the assassination, and that the 20th Special Forces Group had an 8-man sniper team there as well. What is more, the Kings legal team presented a number of questions regarding the unusual behavior of the Memphis Police special body guards, who were advised they werent needed that day. Across the board, regular and constant police protection for King was removed, so that at the time of the shooting he had almost no official shield of defense.

The lawyers also set out to demonstrate that military intelligence set up photographers on a roof of a fire station with a clear view to Dr.

Kings balcony; that Dr. Kings room was changed from a secure 1st-floor room to an exposed balcony room; and that the Memphis police ordered the cutting down of bushes that could have hid a sniper. Along with sanitizing the crime scene, the police also neglected to carry our ordinary investigative procedures such as interviewing witnesses who lived by the scene of the shooting.

After four weeks of testimony from over 70 witnesses and just three hours of deliberation, the jury of six whites and six blacks in the wrongful-death case found that Loyd Jowers, as well as others, including governmental agencies had been part of a conspiracy. The jury awarded the King family the damages they had sought: $100, which was then donated to charity.

The Swedish Government Is Warning Citizens to Be Prepared for at Least a Week Without Help (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed World"

The Swedish Government Is Warning Citizens to Be Prepared for at Least a Week Without Help (VIDEO) | sweden | Multimedia Preparedness\Survival World News

The Swedish government is warning its citizens to be prepared to survive on their own for at least a week,  which is unusual advice for Sweden to dispense. Is there trouble on the horizon?

Shortly before Christmas, the Swedish government quietly published a paper called Resilience. Initially, the requirement had been for people to be prepared for 3 days without help, but it seems like that was a baby step. The government itself wants to be prepared for a 3-month long civil emergency and theyre urging citizens to take responsibility, too.

It really makes you wonder what is looming ahead, doesnt it?

A publication called SVT reported:

Because we have the security policy situation we have today, we say that we will make our planning at government level to face a security crisis for three months, says Eva-Lena Fjllstrm, Deputy Director of the County Administrative Board in Vsterbotten.

Previously, it has been said that citizens will be able to cope for three days in the event of a crisis. Now its extended to one week.

I think its important that you can manage yourself. Society has changed and is vulnerable and complex with many dependencies. It can easily be a disturbance so we have to manage ourselves, says Eva-Lena Fjllstrm. (source)

The same publication provided video instructions for putting together a crisis box.

The Swedish government is also urging young people to get better prepared.

Its also interesting to note that back in November, an article introducing the idea of preparedness was published and geared toward 18-year-olds. (One must also wonder if this is a gentle nudge toward a potential draft?) It referenced a study done to measure the preparedness levels of the countrys young people.

In order to strengthen Swedish emergency preparedness, it is important that as many people as possible be prepared to co...


The Politics of Sustainability "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

As Democrats embark on a ten-month campaign to take back Congress, it's clear they need a unifying message. Because Republicans are defined by Trump, Dems could unite on the theme, "lock him up." While satisfying, this slogan doesn't capture the depravity of Trump's reign or the fact that Republicans have sold their souls uniting behind him. A better solution for Democrats would be to focus on sustainability.

Mexico, the Most Violent in 20 Years "IndyWatch Feed World"

Mexico, the Most Violent in 20 Years | mexico-violence | Special Interests World News


(The Real Agenda News) At least 80 people are murdered per day in Mexico, a number that equals the horror of the worst days the country lived during the narco wars.

Violence in Mexico seems to be a recurring theme every end of the year. In 2017, again, Mexico is on the verge of breaking all its own bloody records.

With just a month left to close the year, the country is on its path to breaking the number of murders seen in 2011, the year of the so-called drug war driven by then then-President Felipe Caldern.

After the November data was made public last Friday night, the accumulated rate reaches 26,573 murders. That is 80 murders a day.

With a monthly average of more than 2,000 intentional homicides, Mexico is one step away from exceeding 27,199, the record from 2011.

Since the end of military patrols ended in December 2006, murder rates, the crime most related to organized crime- skyrocketed until they peaked in 2011, then went down in 2014, a year in which paradoxically there were two events of great symbolic power: the disappearance of the 43 students of Ayotzinapa and the killing of civilians by the army in Tlatlalya.

In the following three years, as the arrests or deaths of the big bosses continued, the numbers boiled again until the numbers gathered in November came to light.

In this month, the Government of Pea Nieto has perpetuated the polices use of the Army in the country with the coming into force of the so-called Internal Security Law.



Palestinian-American businessman Amer Otham arrested by ICE after getting deportation reprieve "IndyWatch Feed World"

When Amer Othman Al Adi arrived at Cleveland's federal immigration offices on Tuesday morning for what he thought to be a routine check-in, agents with the Immigration, Customs and Enforcement (ICE) agency immediately detained him, wrenching him from the arms of Fidaa, his wife of 29 years. Today, the 57-year-old Palestinian-American business owner sits in the Geauga County jail awaiting deportation - the first time Adi has seen the inside of a jail cell in his three decades living in the United States. "[ICE] arrested him like he was a criminal. Usually criminals have to do something wrong," Lina Adi, the second oldest of the family's four children told me. No charges have been filed to warrant his arrest and Khaalid H. Walls, ICE spokesperson for the Northeastern region, which includes Ohio, would not say on what grounds he was detained nor the anticipated length of Adi's incarceration. Less than two weeks ago, Amer and Fidaa had been preparing to voluntarily leave the country for Jordan, cooperating with a January 7 deadline issued by immigration authorities in September. As we reported, Adi received a last minute stay of deportation much to the relief of his family and community.


Linux Fu: Custom Bash Command Completion "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

If you arent a Linux user and you watch someone who knows what they are doing use Bash the popular command line interpreter you might get the impression they type much faster than they actually do. Thats because experienced Linux users know that pressing the tab key will tend to complete what they are typing, so you can type just a few characters and get a much longer line of text. The feature is very smart so you may not have realized it, but it knows a good bit about what you could type. For example, if you try to unzip a file, it knows the expected file name probably has a .zip extension.

How does that happen? At first, you might think, who cares how it happens? The problem is when you write a shell script or a program that runs on Linux, the completion gets dumb. Someone has to make Bash smart about each command line program and if you are the author then that someone is you.

Anatomy of Command Completion

Turns out completion depends on a particular GNU library known as readline. It reads text for lots of different programs, including Bash and you can configure it using the .inputrc file in your home directory. For example, heres my .inputrc:

"\e[A": history-search-backward
"\e[B": history-search-forward
$if Bash
Space: magic-space
set match-hidden-files off
set completion-ignore-case on
set visible-stats on
set show-all-if-ambiguous on

That doesnt look like much, but there is a system-wide configuration at /etc/inputrc which is much more substantial. You can also issue cert...

Cryptocurrency Mania and Blockchain Banking | bitcoin-block-chain-cryptocurrency | Economy & Business Special Interests

The never ending overdose of Bitcon coverage in the press and on social media would have one believe that the manna of financial subsistence is leading us all out of the wilderness. Whether this crypto circulation of a promise to pay is actually a currency is very much an open question. What we do know and can take to the bank is that it is not legal tender. In the globalists world of central banksters all money if fiat and species is relegated to a numismatic coin collection.

How ironic that the hypsters and shameless touting charlatans have promoted prices driven by greed or the fear of missing out as Bitcoin vs historys biggest bubbles mounts. The current generation proves their lack of economic acumen by ignoring the principles behind Greshams lawbad money drives out good. More exactly, if coins containing metal of different value have the same value as legal tender, the coins composed of the cheaper metal will be used for payment, while those made of more expensive metal will be hoarded or exported and thus tend to disappear from circulation.

Now the supra idealists will claim that using the underlying technology of blockchain, the banking system is being circumvented and transactions are conducted outside and removed from the clearing system of wired transfers or currency conversion.

Before one goes wild with such a noble objective, there are two slight problems with this nave assessment.

1) Bitcoin or any other competing cryptocurrency is not legal tender recognized by state edicts for payment and settlement of governmental obligations.

Trumps Nuclear Posture Review: Planning for Nuclear War? "IndyWatch Feed World"

In December 2016, President-elect Trump on nuclear weapons ominously tweeted:

Let it be an arms race. We will outmatch them at every pass and outlast them all.

Early in his tenure, he said if countries are going to have nukes, were going to be at the top of the pack.

Instead of stepping back from the brink, he wants Americas nuclear arsenal greatly expanded. As long as these weapons exist, theyll likely be used with devastating effects, risking doom.

The only way to prevent eventual nuclear war is by eliminating these weapons entirely. Nuclear roulette assures losers, not winners.

Einstein said splitting the atom changed everything save our modes of thinking, and thus we drift toward unparalleled catastrophe.

Washington wants all sovereign independent governments replaced by pro-Western puppet regimes.

Most are non-nuclear states. US policymakers reserve the right to attack them with nuclear weapons, a possible armageddon scenario.

Trumps reckless remarks show he has no understanding of the destructive power of todays thermonuclear weapons, able to incinerate major cities like New York, along with surrounding areas, killing millions.

Reportedly, Trump wants Americas nuclear arsenal increased 10-fold. Last October, he called for greatly strengthen(ing) and expand(ing) (the nations) nuclear capability at a time its only enemies are invented ones, no others.

According to the Federation of American Scientists, the Pentagon currently has around 4,000 nuclear warheads.

If you plan on visiting the US for any number of reasons, you are probably going to need a visa. You will also require an ESTA visa, which is a digital visa that stands for Electronic System for Travel Authorization. This shouldnt be a concern as it is relatively easy to acquire. While the process is pretty straightforward, you still need to familiarize yourself with it in order to properly go about applying for your ESTA. Check out the rest of this piece in order to learn how you can get your own ESTA and become eligible for travel in the US.

The second round of strong cold air in the new year started striking the states of Illinois, Indiana, Michigan and other areas in central and western U.S. from Sunday, bringing heavy snow and lowering temperature to minus 15 degrees Celsius. The snow lasted three days and reached more than 10 centimeters in thickness in many areas. The snow accumulated near Lake Michigan even was knee-deep. High humidity and low temperature enveloped the trees and grasses with ice and frost around the lake, forming natural-looking ice sculptures of various shapes. While some look like eagles on the tree branch, others seem like blooming flowers. The lighthouse turned into a huge umbrella covered by ice and snow.

Russian Forces Exit As Turkey Begins Afrin Operation? "IndyWatch Feed War"

 If early reports are accurate, clearly Russia is on board with this. I would assume Syria is also accepting of this move despite whatever words are uttered in opposition. Talk is cheap.

 Daily Sabah

The Russian military started to withdraw its forces from Syria's Afrin Friday as Turkey prepares to carry out a military operation against the PKK-affiliated People's Protection Units (YPG), Anadolu Agency reported Friday.

The Russian security forces deployed in northeast Kafr Jana region of Afrin city started leaving the area, according to reliable sources in Afrin.

Some of the Russian security assets have reached Nubl and Zahra towns, on the outskirts of Afrin, which were currently held by the Assad regime.

The reports came shortly after Turkish Defense Minister Nurettin Canikli said that Russia informed Turkey about its plans to pull out its military assets from the Syrian district.

The minister said talks between Turkish and Russian officials regarding the operation will continue.

An operation in Afrin -- a region bordering Turkey's Hatay and Kilis provinces -- is widely expected in the wake of Turkey's successful seven-month Operation Euphrates Shield in northern Syria, which ended in March 2017.
After Turkey issued several severe warnings of an imminent operation, the terrorists in Afrin are now hiding out in shelters and pits in residential areas there.

Doubtful the Turks will use a whole lot of air power- Rather I suspect well be looking at boots on the ground

 JAN 18, 2018

Visiting Australian Prime Minister Malcolm Turnbull and Japanese counterpart Shinzo Abe agreed Thursday in Tokyo to bolster cooperation to ensure a free, open, stable and prosperous Indo-Pacific region built on a rule-based order, effectively endorsing Japans strategy to keep Chinas growing military power in check in the region.

In a joint statement released the same day, the two leaders also agreed to promote deeper and broader defense cooperation this year, including exercises, operations, capacity building and mutual visits by the military forces of the two countries.

Abe has advocated a policy of pursuing a free and open Indo-Pacific region, which calls for freedom of maritime navigation and opposes any unilateral action to change the status-quo. It is widely seen as designed to urge China to rein in its growing assertiveness at sea.

Our relationship is about shared values. We are seeking to achieve the same objective as youve described as a free and open Indo-Pacific, Turnbull told reporters soon after the summit.

The two leaders reaffirmed their determination to urge member countries to sign the Trans-Pacific Partnership free trade agreement so that it will quickly go into effect, according to the statement.

Japan and Australia have also been negotiating to conclude a new military pact that would specify the legal status of military personnel temporarily staying in each others countries for drills, and aims to simplify procedures needed for the transport of military equipment.

In the joint statement, the leaders said they underscored the importanceof such a pact and directed all relevant ministers to conclude the negotiations as early as (is) feasible.

Making offline backups of a Linux machine using Backblaze. "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

As frequent readers may or may not remember, I rebuilt my primary server last year, and in the process set up a fairly hefty RAID-5 array (24 terabytes) to store data.  As one might reasonably expect, backing all of that stuff up is fairly difficult.  I'd need to buy enough external hard drives to fit a copy of everything on there, plus extra space to store incremental backups for some length of time.  Another problem is that both Leandra and the backup drives would be in the same place at the same time, so if anything happened at the house I'd not only not have access to Leandra anymore, but there's an excellent chance that the backups would be wrecked, leaving me doubly screwed.

Here are the requirements I had for making offsite backups:

  • Backups of Leandra had to be offsite, i.e., not in the same state, ideally not on the same coast.
  • Reasonably low cost.  I ran the numbers on a couple of providers and paying a couple of hundred dollars a month to back up one server was just too expensive.
  • Linux friendly.
  • My data gets encrypted with a key only I know before it gets sent to the backup provider.
  • A number of different backup applications had to support the provider, in case one was no longer supported.
  • Easy to restore data from backup.

After a week or two of research and experimentation, as well as pinging various people to get their informed opinions, I decided to go with Backblaze as my offsite backup provider, and Duplicity as my backup software.  Here's how I went about it, as well as a few gotchas I ran into along the way.

First of all, I signed up for a personal account at Backblaze.  If you want to give them a try, here's my referral link.  Full disclosure: For every month someone pays for if they sign up using that link, I get a free month.  Just to be safe I also set up two-factor authentication on my account for additional protection (and if you don't do this often, you really should).

Next, I installed Duplicity from the Arch Linux package repository:

drwho@leandra:(9) ~$ sudo pacman -S duplicity

I also had to install the Backblaze B2 package from the AUR to enable B2 support.  I used...

Trump's destabilizing and escalating threats against Iran "IndyWatch Feed World"

The US-Iran confrontation is already destabilising parts of the Middle East that were starting to settle down after the defeat of Isis in the second half of last year. "The escalating American threats against Iran mean that the Iranians will be more vigorous in safeguarding their position in Iraq and Syria," said a former Iraqi minister who did not want his name published. He warned that senior US officials, particularly those with a military background, "will do everything short of war against Iran". They had convinced themselves that Iran's clerical government was weaker than was really the case. "They believe that they just have to kick the system and it will collapse," he said. This wishful thinking has been encouraged by the protests that have broken out in Iranian cities since 28 December. US-Iran tensions increased last Friday when President Donald Trump said he had signed a waiver on the reimposition of draconian US sanctions on Iran for the last time. He would not do so when the issue comes up again in 120 days unless the nuclear deal agreed with Iran two years ago is substantially modified, something that is unlikely to happen. The uncertainty about sanctions has already cut the economic benefits to Iranians stemming from the agreement because foreign banks and companies do not want to risk spending money doing business in Iran and then find that they have to stop because of sanctions.

Thousands of people all across Russia braved freezing winter temperatures to bathe in ice-cold waters celebrating the Orthodox Christian holiday of the Epiphany - the baptism of Jesus Christ. Vladimir Putin, known for his love of outdoor activities and commitment to Christianity, took to Lake Seliger north of Moscow on the night of January 18-19, to participate in the annual bathing in icy waters on the Epiphany Day, commemorating the baptism of Jesus Christ in the Jordan River that took place over two millennia ago.

China a disruptive force, says US Pacific military chief "IndyWatch Feed War"

NEW DELHI (REUTERS) The head of the US militarys Pacific command called China a disruptive power in the Indo-Pacific region on Thursday (Jan 18) and urged countries in the area to build capabilities and work together to ensure free and open seas.

Admiral Harry Harris, known for his combative views on Beijings South China Sea expansion, was speaking at a security conference sponsored by the Indian government, where he was joined by the chief of staff, joint staff of Japan and the head of the Indian navy.

The three countries the United States, Japan and India have grown increasingly concerned about Chinas assertive military posture in the region and sought to draw closer, with Australia, in a quad of liberal democracies.

I believe the reality is that China is a disruptive transitional force in the Indo-Pacific, they are owner of the trust deficit that we all have spent the last hour talking about, Adm Harris said, referring to the discussions of the panel.

The United States has criticised Chinas construction of islands and build-up of military facilities in the South China Sea, saying they could be used to restrict free nautical movement.

China says there is no issue with freedom of navigation in the South China Sea and opposes efforts to use it as anexcuse to infringe on Chinas sovereignty and security interests.

Adm Harris said Chinas actions had caused disquiet in countries stretching from the Philippines to Malaysia and Vietnam. He said it was time countries took firmer measures to ensure maritime stability.

We must be willing to take the tough decisions to ensure the Indo-Pacific region and the Indian Ocean remain free, open and prosperous, he said.

This requires like-minded nations to develop capacities, leverage each others capabilities. Adm Harris had earlier proposed joint patrols with the Indian navy in the Indian Ocean. New Delhi, worried about a backlash from China, said no such actions were planned.

But India has begun holding trilateral naval exercises with the US and Japan that military experts say could eventually include Australia as well.

CIDH acredita riesgo de Bettina Cruz por su trabajo en defensa de los territorios indgenas en Mxico "IndyWatch Feed Noramerica"

La Comisin Interamericana de Derechos Humanos (CIDH) orden a Mxico proteger de forma inmediata la vida e integridad personal de Bettina Cruz y su ncleo familiar. Las medidas cautelares fueron emitidas tras acreditarse la situacin de riesgo por el trabajo en defensa de los derechos de los pueblos indgenas. El pueblo zapoteco lleva una lucha incansable ante la imposicin del proyecto Elica del Sur en Juchitn al no contar con su consentimiento. Anteriormente pretendi instalarse en el pueblo de San Dionisio del Mar como consorcio Marea Renovables. Representados por Bettina Cruz los pueblos zapotecos han llevado con xito ante la ONU y el Banco Interamericano de Desarrollo los reclamos sobre la falta de respeto y garanta de derechos humanos, tanto por el gobierno de Mxico, como por las empresas involucradas.

Es una fuerte advertencia y a la vez una oportunidad para que el Estado y el sector privado finalmente tomen en serio el trabajo de defensa territorial indgena y cumplan con sus obligaciones internacionales, dijo Alejandra Gonza, directora de la Clnica de Derechos Humanos de la Universidad de Washington, representante de Bettina ante organismos internacionales. Los estudiantes de la Clnica durante meses documentaron el peligro constante en el que viven las comunidades y el incremento del riesgo por activar los mecanismos legales nacionales e internacionales para defender su territorio, enfrentndose al Estado y a las empresas.
La decisin de la CIDH se suma a la resolucin histrica de la Suprema Corte de Justicia de Mxico emitida hace unos das, de ejercer su facultad de atraccin para conocer este caso. Los pueblos indgenas representados por Bettina Cruz, denunciaron ante el Alto Tribunal la falta de una consulta libre, previa e informada en la construccin del proyecto Elica del Sur. La Corte podra fijar un importante precedente para la defensa de los derechos de los indgenas, determinar el contenido de las obligaciones que tienen las empresas y las distintas dependencias del Estado en materia de derechos humanos y establecer los estndares de derechos humanos que los proyectos derivados de la Reforma Energtica deben cumplir.

En Oaxaca existen ms de 21 parques elicos en funcionamiento, cuya instalacin ha ocasionado el despojo de tierras, alteracin de las formas de subsistencia, costumbres y creencias de las comunidades indgenas desde los aos 90. Con la aprobacin de una Reforma Energtica en Mxico, la declaracin de Oaxaca como Zona Econmica Especial y la militarizacin de la regin, el Estado privilegia proyectos energticos frente a los derechos humanos.

US Attorney Drops 129 Trump Inauguration Protest Cases, 59 Still Face Decades In Prison "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

Washington, DC A legal filing submitted today by the US Attorneys Office (USAO) indicate that the federal government has drastically reduced the scope of the prosecution of people mass arrested during Donald Trumps presidential inauguration on January 20 , 2017 (J20). The government will no longer bring charges against 129 of the almost 200 people previously indicted based on their presence at an anti-capitalist and anti-fascist march that was violently herded into a police trap. 59 people still have trial dates scattered throughout this year and face charges carrying up to 60 years in prison. The motion filed by Assistant US Attorney Jennifer Kerkhoff claims that the smaller remaining group of defendants still face charges due to their alleged involvement in identifiable acts of destruction, violence, or other assaultive conduct.

The Consequences Of Chase & Scatter In The Wilderness "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

The death of Jos Cesario is not an aberration. Our report finds that the US Border Patrol routinely chases people, causing them to scatter, and directly contributing to their disappearance and/or death. Since the mid-1990s, the US Border Patrols policy of Prevention Through Deterrence has intentionally pushed migration into increasingly remote corridors in the Southwest borderlands. This policy has turned the natural landscape into a lethal weapon that injures, kills, and disappears border crossers. Our report shines a light on the deadly practices that characterize enforcement in these hostile wilderness areas. The result: thousands of known deaths of undocumented border crossers, and an even greater number of disappearancesa crisis that has received far less attention.

Germany fiercely defends its trade surplus World anger mounts over toxic trade surplus "IndyWatch Feed War"

  • However, in the eyes of the Bundesbank president, it is prudent to keep a positive output gap to ensure Germanys finances wont be damaged when demographic pressures kick in

Germany again defended its economic surplus on Thursday, despite increased criticism from the International Monetary Fund (IMF) and Europe.

Jens Weidmann, president of the German central bank, all but ruled out an increase in public spending during a speech.

Raising public spending in order to reduce Germanys current account surplus would likely be a futile undertaking as well, he said.

Weidmann said that, based on macro-econometric simulations, even if Germany were to increase public investment by 1 percent of gross domestic product (GDP) over a two-year period, this would have a very small impact on other euro economies.



Book Review: Norman Finkelstein's 'Gaza' is an exhaustive act of witness "IndyWatch Feed World"

GAZA An Inquest Into Its Martyrdom Norman Finkelstein 440 pp. University of California Press. $34.95. After the 2012 war, I told my Gazan team that we needed a new word. 'War' was a goal-oriented pursuit, tempered by mortal and strategic risk. Israel's conflict maintenance was neither. After the 2014 war, while we still wore those 1000-yard stares, I set out to assign proportionate responsibility. I read books on military accountability, the arc from force projection to force protection, law of war handbooks, and every report I could find. I could not unpick their crazy-making inconsistencies. From their conclusions, I could not recognize what I had seen. I told my team that we needed a new kind of scholarship. Gaza: An Inquest Into Its Martyrdom, enables a different scholarship. Norman Finkelstein has set out to deconstruct the false narrative of war in Gaza, by refuting its component parts. One by one. Finkelstein is an author, activist and scholar with decades of archives and outrage to bring. Gaza is one exhaustive act of witness. I differ with some of its choices, and I note that in order to emphasize that agreement is not required. I found Gaza hugely valuable as an argument, a demand for accountability, and as a response to the question my team repeated, "What do they think we are?"

While the same media outlets that have been openly critical of President Trump became the topics of his "Fake News Awards," the entire event was filled with hypocrisy, and served as a depiction of the pot calling the kettle black-both entities have spent a significant amount of time lying to and misleading the public. WikiLeaks, an organization that the mainstream media have attempted to claim is a pro-Trump, pro-Russia propaganda firm, took to Twitter to point out the hypocrisy surrounding the awards: "While WikiLeaks, as a primary source organization with a perfect verification record welcomes debate over 'fake news' it should be noted that along with the U.S. establishment press, the Trump administration is a frequent source of false information," the organization claimed. The statement is notable because it serves as a reminder of the relationship between WikiLeaks and the Trump administration.

Hollywood Asks New UK Culture Secretary To Fight Online Piracy "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Following Prime Minister Theresa Mays cabinet reshuffle earlier this month, Matt Hancock replaced Karen Bradley as Secretary of State for Digital, Culture, Media and Sport.

Hancock, the 39-year-old MP for West Suffolk, was promoted from his role as Minister for Digital and Culture, a position hed held since July 2016.

Thrilled to become DCMS Secretary. Such an exciting agenda, so much to do, and great people. Cant wait to get stuck in, he tweeted.

Of course, the influence held by the Culture Secretary means that the entertainment industries will soon come calling, seeking help and support in a number of vital areas. No surprise then that Stan McCoy, president and managing director at the Motion Picture Associations EMEA division, has just jumped in with some advice for Hancock.

In an open letter published on Screen Daily, McCoy begins by reminding Hancock that the movie industry contributes considerable sums to the UK economy.

We are one of the countrys most valuable economic and cultural assets worth almost 92bn, growing at twice the rate of the economy, and making a positive contribution to the UKs balance of payments, McCoy writes.

Britains status as a center of excellence for the audiovisual sector in particular is no accident: It results from the hard work and genius of our creative workforce, complemented by the support of governments that have guided their policies toward enabling continued excellence and growth.

McCoy goes on to put anti-piracy initiatives at the very top of his wishlist and Hancocks to-do list.

A joined-up strategy to curb proliferation of illegal, often age-inappropriate and malware-laden content online must include addressing the websites, environments and apps that host and facilitate piracy, McCoy says.

In addition to hurting one of Britains most important industries, they are overwhelmingly likely to harm children and adult consumers through nasty ads, links to adult content with no age verification, scams, fraud and other unpleasantness.

That McCoy begins with the piracy is dangerous approach is definitely not a surprise. This Hollywood and wider video industry strategy is now an open secret. However, it fe...


Indonesias Anti-Communism Law Used Against Environmental Activist "IndyWatch Feed World"

(HRW) Indonesian prosecutors are seeking a seven-year prison sentence for an environmental activist for allegedly raising pro-communist banners while peacefully protesting pollution linked to a local gold mine.

Prosecutors in Banyuwangi, East Java, argued in court on Monday that Heri Budiawan, a leader of the grassroots environmental organization Banyuwangi Peoples Forum, displayed eight banners bearing the communist hammer-and-sickle symbol during an April 4, 2017 protest against the Tampung Pitu gold mine. Under Indonesias draconian anti-communism laws, anyone convicted of publicly supporting communism can be imprisoned for up to 12 years.

Budiawans prosecution is just the latest effort by local authorities to effectively criminalize protests against the mine. In 2016, after facing nearly a decade of protests, the Indonesian government declared the mine to be a strategic national project, making it harder to oppose.

At the trial the prosecutors failed to present evidence of any protest banners that bore the hammer-and-sickle symbol. Budiawan denies the allegations

Beyond this one case is the lingering peril posed by dangerously ambiguous laws, Dutch colonial legacies appropriated during the three-decade Suharto dictatorship, which give prosecutors wide latitude to prosecute public expressions of support for communism and display of communist symbols.

Budiawans prosecution for alleged communist sympathies coincides with a recent surge in efforts by elements of the Indonesian security forces to stoke anti-communist paranoia. This is a response to calls for accountability for the 1965-66 massacres, in which between 500,000 to one million people were killed by the military, paramilitary groups, and Muslim militias. Those targeted were suspected members of the Communist Party of Indonesia (PKI) and ethnic Chinese, as well as trade unionists, teachers, activists, and artists.

Seven adults and two children were referred to the Miguel Couto Hospital in Gavea. The others were taken to the Souza Aguiar facility.

Its Time for Electric Companies to Pivot "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

U.S. demand for electricity has slumped; utilities should shift their focus to renewables and efficiency consulting Illustration: iStockphoto

Renewable energy is rapidly changing the electric grid, and utilities need to adapt or face still greater disruption in their industry, according to a new report. Two directions now appear likely to offer opportunities for growth, the report says.

One is to move toward electric infrastructure as a platform for new applications that other companies can develop, such as renewable energy storage. The other direction is for the utility itself to expand into new growth areas like electric vehicle charging stations.

Either way, says report co-author Dan Cross-Call of the Rocky Mountain Institute, utilities that sit back and continue with business as usual could fall behind. Traditional utility growth models, he says, are not future-proof. Demand for electricity has become flat or declining in many places, he says. So the historical expectation that sales increase is no longer the case.

Cross-Call says renewables such as solar photovoltaicswhose explosive growth has put it 40 years ahead of the U.S. Energy Information Administrations forecasts from earlier this centurycontinue to eat into the old centrally-generated electric utility business model. Meanwhile, the efficiencies of LED lighting and other improvements have reduced demand for electricity in the U.S. compared to the age of the incandescent bulb.

The good news for utilities, he says, is a number of innovative players have already shown the way. For instance, Cross-Call lauds the Vermont utility Green Mountain Power (which IEEE Spectrum profiled in 2014) as one of the most innovative utilities in the U.S. He says Green Mountain represents a hybrid approach, offering both platform development and some expanded offerings as well.

On the latter front, for instance, Green Mountain Power offers home energy audits and efficiency consulting as part of its services. And as a platform developer, theyve partnered with Tesla to...

REPORT: Democrats Worry As Wealthy People Flee California Over High Taxes "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Mike LaChance at American Lookout:

People have a tendency to vote on policy with their feet. If the policies in one state are bad, they move to another state with better policies. In Liberal California, wealthy people are fleeing the state due to high taxes and it has Democrats very worried.

The Sacramento Bee reports:

Wealthy exodus to escape new tax rules worries California Democrats

The Republican-backed federal tax bill flipped the tables on a never-ending question for California politicians: Will high taxes lead the states wealthiest residents to flee the Golden State for the comparable tax havens of Florida, Nevada and Texas?

Republicans reliably raise that alarm when Democrats advocate for tax increases, like the 2012 and 2016 ballot initiatives that levied a new income tax on very high-earning residents.

But now, with the federal tax bill cutting off deductions that benefited well-off Californians, the states Democrats suddenly are singing the GOP song about a potential millionaire exodus.

People with higher incomes pay a lot more money, and some of them may be tempted to leave, Gov. Jerry Brown said when he unveiled his 2018-19 budget proposal last week. This was an assault by the Republicans in Congress against California.

Democratic state lawmakers are worried because California relies so heavily on the income taxes it collects from high earners to fund government services. The states wealthiest 1 percent, for instance, pay 48 percent of its income tax, and the departure of just a few families could lead to a noticeable hit to state general fund revenue.

California could fix this problem easily by embracing a slightly less far left policy but they probably wont.

Latest Pope Got Beaned In the Head During Santiago Protest, After Accusing Sex Abuse Victims of Slander "IndyWatch Feed War"


Pope Francis accuses sex abuse victims of slander


Pope Francis on Thursday accused clerical sex abuse victims in Chile of slander just days after meeting with survivors and asking for forgiveness, according to reports.

The shocking assertion came while he was speaking to reporters in Iquique about Bishop Juan Barros, who has been accused of covering up sex crimes committed by Rev. Fernando Karadima, the nations most notorious pedophile.

There is not one shred of proof against him. Its all calumny, Francis said in defense of Barros.

The day they bring me proof against Bishop Barros, Ill speak, he added.

The comments left reporters and residents stunned, especially since the popes trip to Chile was meant to help change local opinions on the Catholic church following the Karadima scandal and other abuse cases involving church officials.

Economists are playing catch-up with economic reality "IndyWatch Feed Economics"

Economic growth forecasts for 2018 have been ratcheted higher as data exceeds expectations

Growth rates in BRICS nations such as China and Russia have exceed expectations of the IMF and other forecasts [Xinhua]

The news that Chinas GDP growth in 2017 was 6.9 per cent as opposed to the government target of 6.5 per cent and the January 2017 international Monetary Fund (IMF) projection of 6.5 per cent is merely the latest in a sequence of economic data releases that has pushed economists to play catch-up with economic reality.

China is also not the only BRICS member county to see economic data exceed expectations.

Brazil has surprised by how robust its economy has performed despite the ongoing corruption allegations and the stalled political reform agenda.

Russia has exceeded expectations both in terms of growth and low inflation, while India has started to recover from the high-denomination rupee withdrawal of November 2016. South Africa has recently seen accelerating growth after a slow first half.

The IMF in January 2017 forecast that Brazil would only grow by 0.2 per cent in 2017. Full year figures have not yet been published, but the Brazilian economy expanded by 1.4 per cent y/y in the third quarter of 2017, following a 0.4 per cent y/y gain in the second quarter and better than the consensus forecast of 1.3 per cent.

It is the fastest growth rate since the first quarter of 2014, boosted by a jump in household consumption spending and exports.

The IMF in January 2017 forecast that Russia would only grow by 1.1 per cent in 2017. Full year figures have not yet been published, but the Russian economy expanded by 1.8 per cent y/y in the third quarter of 2017, following a 2.5 per cent y/y gain in the second quarter and better than the consensus forecast of 1.6 per cent.

The economy was boosted by a jump in household consumption spending and exports on the expenditure side and by farming and manufacturing on the production side.

Agriculture advanced by 3.8 per cent y/y in the third quarter after a small 0.1 per cent y/y rise in the second quarter.

The export performance was particularly robust as the oil price recovered from the January 2016 lows. That meant Russias trade surplus widened by 28.4 per cent y/y to US$ 11.52 billion in November, which was above market expectations of a US$ 11 billion surplus.

In the first eleven months of 2017, the trade surplus widened sharply to US$101.63 b...


The truth about fake news "IndyWatch Feed War"

The truth about fake news , by Thierry Meyssan
Thierry Meyssan,Voltaire Network /
As soon as the announcement of his surprise election was made public, and even before he had access to the White House, the immense majority of US and NATO media began screaming about the negligence and insanity of President Trump. Battle was joined between the media class and the new President, with each side accusing the other of propagating fake news.
Almost everywhere in the NATO countries and only in these countries political representatives began denouncing fake news. This was intended to reveal the supposed influence of Russian propaganda within the Western democracies . The State which has been the most seriously impacted by this campaign is France, whose President Emmanuel Macron recently announced the drafting of a law specifically aimed at fighting these attacks on democracy , but only during an electoral period .
The fact that the English expression fake news is maintained in all the languages of the NATO countries attests to the Anglo-Saxon origin of the problem, when in fact the phrase designates a phenomenon as old as the world - false information.


When Will the Good Guys in the FBI and DOJ Stand Up and Petition to Have their Dirty Leaders Removed from Office? "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

Its time! We hear about the good FBI and DOJ detectives and attorneys. Now its time for them to stand up and demand that the dirty leaders in their organizations be brought to justice.

Where are the good guys? For years now, the FBI and DOJ have been infiltrated at the top with corrupt and criminal individuals. The corruption started at the top. Dirty Cops and former FBI Heads Mueller and Comey are part of the deep state and they clearly have stacked the leadership at the FBI with their fellow deep state criminals. (Rod Rosenstein, Andrew McCabe, Peter Strzok, etc)

One former FBI Agent was on Varney and Co and he described the corrupt actions of the deep state within the US justice department

Clearly there must be some good FBI employees and retired employees that will stand together to demand the corrupt leaders of the FBI be removed and brought to justice? Its clear that the current AG Jeff Sessions is not complying with subpoenas from Congress so why would we believe that he would bring these people to justice. 

Congress is doing what they can but America needs good guys in these organizations to become heroes and put justice first.

Is today the day that the good guys stand up and demand justice in our justice department and FBI? Stand up patriots and step forward and Drain the Swamp!

What providers (system/os/motherboard/chip) have been especially helpful... or non-helpful? How has their response affected your view of that company?

What resources have you been using to check on the status of fixes for your systems? Have you found a site that stands above the others in timeliness and accuracy?

#ObamaGate A Complete List of DOJ and FBI Corruptors and Criminals Destroying the US from Within "IndyWatch Feed"

Guest post by Joe Hoft

The Deep State FBI and Department of Justice (DOJ) were once considered institutions full of integrity and honor before the Obama Presidency. Now they are riddled with corruption and led by a group of deceiving, criminal and corrupt leaders who are working to overthrow the Trump administration which threatens to uncover their many corrupt and criminal actions over the past many years. Today these swamp monsters may begin to be exposed.

As published in late December, here is a list of Deep State criminals

A number of individuals, in the FBI and DOJ, are using their power to prevent President Donald Trump from governing as he was duly elected to do and are doing all they can to overturn the election that put the President in place.

The entire Mueller investigation is a scam created by these individuals to overthrow the US government. Their desperate actions are a clear indication that they have much to hide. Former United Nations Ambassador John Bolten called the recent actions against President Trump the first Coup Dtat in US History

Below is our list of corrupt, criminal and treasonous operatives within the DOJ and FBI who need to be brought to justice

Eric Holder -According to the Guardian Obamas first Attorney General Eric Holder was

the first sitting member of a presidents cabinet in US history to be held in contempt of Congress after Republicans vented their fury over a bungled gun-tracking investigation.

Seventeen Democrats, under pressure from the pro-gun lobby the NRA, joined 238 Republicans to carry a criminal contempt resolution against Holder. A currently serving attorney general has never before been censured in this way.

The criminal contempt resolution, passed by 255 to 67, with most Democrats walking out of the chamber en masse before the vote, related to Operation Fast and Furious, a federal investigation launched in Arizona designed to ensnare gun smugglers involved with the Mexican drug cartels.

Why Russia grants temporary status to refugees "IndyWatch Feed World"

When Baibers Suleiman arrived in Lebanon in 2014, having fled the war in Syria, he did not feel at ease. "We felt alienated, foreign, although we were just three hours away from our home," the 36-year-old Syrian electrician says. He and his 30-year-old wife Sara felt they needed to leave. A Syrian friend of Baibers' living in Russia suggested they go there. The fact that Baibers is ethnically Circassian helped. Adygea, one of the Russian republics in the historical Circassian homeland in the Northern Caucuses, had been helping Syrian Circassians find refuge in Russia, a policy in line with its efforts to repatriate descendants of the Circassian tribes ethnically cleansed from the region in the 1860s.

Nafeez Ahmed: Trumps State Department spent over $1m in Iran to exploit unrest "IndyWatch Feed War"

by Nafeez Ahmed at InsurgeIntelligence At the end of 2017, a dozen cities across Iran, including the capital Tehran, were rocked by spontaneous protests which continued into the New Year. The protests drew attention to the countrys deteriorating economic conditions, along with the regimes abysmal human rights record. They also paved the way for President Donald Trumps announcement on January 12th that this would be a last chance for waiving US nuclear sanctions under the Iran nuclear deal for a further 60 days, after which the US would withdraw if its disastrous flaws cannot be fixed. A range of recent official documents, from Congressional research to US foreign aid funding reports, throw new light on the Trump administrations approach. The documents reveal the US governments continued interest in triggering major political change in Iran to pull the country into the orbit of American interests. This includes the possibility of exploiting political unrest and other crisesincluding a worsening water crisisto turn popular opinion against the regime.

All Signs Are Pointing to a Coup Against President Trump "IndyWatch Feed Nthamerica"

New intelligence information is coming and this is the latest of what we know about the Sams Club closings and all signs point to a coup against Trump.

This story starts with an anecdotal account of man making a Youtube video  in which he claims that a Cleveland area Walmart has information from 3 employees about a weapons cache of M-16s and automatic weapons discovered in a seldom used office at a Walmart. The weapons crates which were happened upon by the employees contained crates labled as FEMA. The office was segregated by the use of an electronic keypad and the video evidence was scrambled and and the supposed evidence was scrambled.  

There are such security systems employed by FEMA and several sources I spoke with during the infamous Jade Helm 15 and 16 contained similar Walmart content and similar security provisions.

On the surface, this video appears to lack credibility and ordinarily I would ignore its content in the form that it was sent to me. However, I have received two anonymous tips, one was highly credible, regarding the Sams Club closings which are owned by Walmart.

Dr Alban Gaultier, who led the study, said: "The big hope for this kind of research is that we won't need to bother with complex drugs and side effects when we can just play with the microbiome. It would be magical just to change your diet, to change the bacteria you take, and fix your health - and your mood."


Seor Trumpanzee-- Working Class Hero? "IndyWatch Feed"

Trump makes a big deal about keeping his campaign promises. And, unfortunately, the ones he wants to keep, he does try to keep. Sometimes the courts and occasionally, even Congress, keeps him from keeping the worst of them. His excuse for torpedoing the bipartisan DACA fix was that it flew in the face of one of his ugly outbursts of bigotry during the campaign. Now Ryan and McConnell are using his bizarre and incoherent approach as an excuse for not bringing popular DACA fixes to the floor of each house for a vote.

But on promise that was very specific, consistent, loud and very public during the campaign was his promise to the workers at the Carrier plant in Indianapolis. Looks like that's one he didn't really care much about-- or at least not enough about to do anything proactive once he had lost Marion County (Indianapolis) in 2016. Primary day was interesting there:
Hillary- 59,649
Bernie- 58,799
Trumpanzee- 49,835
Lyin' Ted- 39,557
Kasich- 9,633
And, despite Mike Pence's presence on the ticket-- or maybe because of it-- Hillary kicked his ass in the county. She beat him 212,676 (58.9%) to 130,228 (36.1%). Maybe he thought he shaped have won the state's biggest county. He did do better than Romney had though. And he certainly won the state-- and th...

Dan Schultz: The (Republican) Precinct Project "IndyWatch Feed War"

Worth a look. 50% of the Republican precinct positions are vacant and available for filling by true conservatives.  These are the seats that actually elect the Republican leaders who run for office and manage the Party.

One paragraph and two vital links below the fold.

Short version:

The best way conservative President Donald J. Trump supporters can help President Trump make America great again is to become an elected or appointed Republican Party precinct committeeman where they live because then they can help elect conservative, Trump-supporting Republican candidates win the all-important, usually-very-low-turnout primary elections and again in the general election because they will get access to the Partys Get Out The Vote software (GOP Data Center and Advantage) and they will be able to vote in the internal Republican Party elections, along with the approximately 200,000 existing precinct committeemen, and along with the approximately 200,000 other new conservative precinct committeemen, for the best conservative candidates for all of the committee chairmen at the local district, county, and state committees (the state chairman is a member of the RNC), in some cases casting direct votes and in some cases voting to elect electors, and also for the electors of their states other two members of the RNC, their national committeeman and national committeewoman.

Poll: US world approval rating plummets to a 10-year-low, lower than China's "IndyWatch Feed World"

America's global approval rating has plunged to its lowest point in a decade, according to a new Gallup poll, with Germany and China ahead on the world stage. A thousand adults, aged 15 years or older across more than 130 countries, were questioned between March and November 2017. They were asked whether they approved or disapproved of the current US administration. The survey results were published Thursday. President Donald Trump has shaken up US foreign policy during his first year in office - decertifying the nuclear deal with Iran, recognizing Jerusalem as the Israeli capital and threatening North Korea with a nuclear strike.


WWII Soviet bomber parts found in lake near Auschwitz "IndyWatch Feed War"


Foundation of Memory Sites near Auschwitz-Birkenau (FPMP)/AFP | Members of a Polish historical memory foundation sifted through the mud to retrieve fragments of the Soviet bomber, pictured here on January 14, 2018 in the southern Polish village of Harmeze

WARSAW (AFP)  A Polish carp breeder found fragments of a Soviet bomber aircraft from World War II when he drained his lake near the former German Nazi death camp Auschwitz-Birkenau, local history buffs announced Friday.The discovery was made just before Christmas He contacted us immediately, said Dagmar Kopijasz from the Foundation of Memory Sites Near Auschwitz-Birkenau (FPMP), which collects items related to the camp to save them from oblivion.

It was really tough to recover the parts. We sifted through every square metre of the lake in the search for the smallest fragments, in mud during winter temperatures, he told AFP.

He said the Ilyushin Il-4 aircraft had been shot down by a German anti-aircraft defence unit on January 19, 1945, just days before the Soviet army liberated the camp.

Kopijasz believes the parts, which bear Cyrillic writing, only surfaced this year because of land movement in the mining region.

Nazi Germany built the Auschwitz death camp after occupying Poland during World War II.

The Holocaust site has become a symbol of Nazi Germanys genocide of six million European Jews, one million of whom were killed at the camp between 1940 and 1945. More than 100,000 non-Jews also died there.

Long-Range RFID Leaflets "IndyWatch Feed Tech"

Pick a card, any card. [Andrew Quitmeyer] and [Madeline Schwartzman] make sure that any card you pick will match their NYC art installation. Replantment is an interactive art installation which invites guests to view full-size leaf molds from around the world.

A receipt file with leaf images is kept out of range in this art installation. When a viewer selects one, and carries it to the viewing area, an RFID reader tells an Arduino which tag has been detected. Solid-state relays control two recycled clothing conveyors draped with clear curtains. The simple units used to be back-and-forth control but through dead-reckoning, they can present any leaf mold front-and-center.

Clothing conveyors from the last century werent this smart before, and it begs the question about inventory automation in small businesses or businesses with limited space.

We havent seen much long-range RFID, probably because of cost. Ordinary tags have been read at a distance with this portable reader though, and NFC has been transmitted across a room, sort of.

US lawmakers aim to tighten terms of Iran nuclear deal "IndyWatch Feed War"

Following Trumps call to fix P5+1 agreements disastrous flaws, Republicans introduce House bill that would require tougher inspections, ban on ballistic missile development

A bill was introduced in the US House of Representatives on Thursday aimed at tightening the terms of the Iran nuclear deal, despite Tehrans rejection of changes to the accord.

US President Donald Trump has repeatedly criticized the agreement aimed at curbing Tehrans nuclear program, which was signed under his predecessor Barack Obamas administration.

The Iran Freedom Policy and Sanctions Act was introduced by Peter Roskam and backed by Liz Cheney, two Republicans in the US House of Representatives.

The proposed legislation makes clear what any effective agreement would have to contain, Cheney said in a statement.

A deal with Iran would need to at a minimum, authorize anywhere, anytime inspections including inspections of military facilities; disclosure of all past and present, military and civilian nuclear activity; a ban on weapons-grade enrichment; and a restriction on ballistic missile development, said Cheney.

The legislation will ensure that sanctions on Iran will only be relaxed if Iran meets these crucial requirements, Cheney added, criticizing the current agreement for allegedly delivering sanctions relief and cash payments to the Iranian regime in exchange for unverifiable promises.

A parallel bill aimed at toughening the nuclear deal is under consideration in the Senate.

Trump again waived nuclear-related sanctions last week as required every few months to stay in the P5+1 agreement but demanded European partners work with Washington to fix the deals disastrous flaws, or the United States will withdraw.

Irans foreign ministry has said it will not accept any...
