Warmer sea surface temperatures imperil the survival of juvenile albatross: Study "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

New research finds that increased sea surface temperatures can affect the survival of juvenile albatross during their first year at sea and lead to reduced population growth rates. Ecologists with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) in the US and Frances National Center for Scientific Research (CNRS) examined how climate change and functional traits attributes like body size and foraging habits that define a species role in the broader ecosystem impact population dynamics of the blackbrowed albatross (Thalassarche melanophris) by studying 200 breeding pairs of the longlived, migratory seabirds at Kerguelen Island in the southern Indian Ocean. Their results were published this week in the Journal of Animal Ecology. The effects of climatic conditions on seabirds generally occur indirectly. They operate primarily through effects on the availability of prey and breeding habitats potentially causing changes in transportation costs, timing of breeding and body conditions of seabirds, the researchers write in the study. That means that phenology (the timing of life events like breeding or migration), body conditions, and foraging behaviors are some of the key functional traits through which seabirds like the black-browed albatross might respond to climate change. These responses, in turn, can have consequences for demographic trends and population dynamics. Changes in sea surface temperature during the breeding season were found to have little impact on black-browed albatross population growth rates, but higher sea surface temperatures in late winter did have a significant impact because of their effect on the survival of juveniles, according to the

Indonesia to investigate death of journalist being held for defaming palm oil company "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

JAKARTA  Indonesias national commission on human rights has vowed to investigate the death of a journalist who was being held on charges of defaming a palm oil company owned by a powerful tycoon. From November 2017 to March of this year, Muhammad Yusuf wrote at least 23 articles for the news portals Kemajuan Rakyat and Berantas News about a land conflict involving PT Multi Sarana Agro Mandiri (MSAM). The company holds the rights to develop a massive oil palm plantation in Pulau Laut, a small island off the coast of South Kalimantan province, in Indonesian Borneo. It is owned by tycoon Andi Syamsudin Arsyad, popularly known as Haji Isam. Parts of MSAMs concession are claimed by several other firms as well as by local farmers who accuse the company of bulldozing their crops to make way for its plantation. Yusuf covered this dispute. After MSAM reported him to the police, he was arrested on charges of hate speech and defamation, for which he faced up to six years in prison and a 1 billion rupiah ($72,000) fine if convicted. Yusuf spent more than five weeks in police detention, before he was transferred to the custody of the Kotabaru district attorneys office in early May to await trial, which began two weeks later, according to local media. On the morning of June 10, Yusuf was taken to a local hospital after complaining of breathing difficulties and chest pain. He died 30 minutes after arriving at the hospital. He was 42, and

Bald Puppy Found On Roadside Was So Uncomfortable He Wouldn't Move "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When Blue and his siblings were only 3 months old, they were dumped on an empty country road in a small town in Texas and left there to fend for themselves. There are no houses at the end of the road, and people often dump all sorts of unwanted things down there, including animals. Sometimes these poor animals go unnoticed, but luckily, someone spotted Blue and his siblings and knew they had to help

Jennifer Peskeys husband and kids were out driving when they called her to tell her that four pit bull puppies had been dumped on their road. Peskey was used to these kinds of calls, unfortunately, and had rescued multiple dogs found on her road in the past. She quickly went out to see the puppies and she felt a tug on her heart as soon as she laid eyes on Blue.

The puppies had been dumped in a small crate and left in a ditch, and the door to the crate had opened, allowing the puppies to wander around. While all of the puppies appeared to have mange, Blue was in the worst shape of all, and Peskeys heart broke for him. 

Blue was hairless, crusty and red, Peskey told The Dodo. The other three dogs were playing in a pasture but poor Blue was sitting by the crate. The poor thing was so red and he could hardly move. I felt like he was the one that really needed help. When I first picked him up he was so scared, but once I caught him its like he knew he was safe.

Stray Pit Bull Saved From Streets Becomes An Official Police Officer "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

It wasnt too long ago that this sweet pit bull named Wildflower was just another homeless dog in the world.

But when given the chance to thrive, she made history.

In late 2016, Wildflower was rescued from the streets of South Carolina, where shed been living the sad, hopeless life of a stray. From there, she was taken in by Carol Skaziak, founder of the Throw Away Dogs Project, an organization that trains rescue pups for service in law enforcement.

Right away, Skaziak saw Wildflowers potential as a narcotics detection dog.

Over the six months that followed, Wildflower underwent training, revealing herself to be a skilled detector. 

The formerly unwanted dog had found her purpose and soon she landed a job.

This Bear Has Been Used To 'Train' Dogs Her Whole Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

At first glance, a bizarre kind of "station" in Ukraine doesn't seem like much: a few freestanding buildings and something that looks like a gazebo.

But a cage in one corner of the compound holds a brown bear named Kvitka and what she has endured there for years is almost unimaginable. 

Credit: Four Paws

Kvitka has spent most of her life in a cage. The 8-year-old bear has spent the past six years at this "station." And before that, she lived in another place like this in Eneyko. When she's allowed outside of her cage, she's used for a practice called "bear baiting."

"She was used for dogfights and bear/dog training at the baiting station. The current manager of the station confirmed this when our team initially visited the station," Claire LaFrance, communications director at Four Paws International, told The dodo. "According to the manager, around 30 dogs are kept at the baiting station ([our] team could hear them barking), also badgers and boars. Selected dogs are sent for baiting contests from time to time to various regions of Ukraine."

People at Four Paws managed to obtain footage of what this practice looks like: Terrified bears, often weakened by underfeeding, are chained up to a post while hunting dogs circle them. Sometimes the bears' claws have been painfully removed have no hope of defending themselves.

Man Traps Extremely Rare Wolf And Kills Him With A Shovel "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A man in New Mexico admitted that he knew exactly what he was doing when he set a trap in the Gila National Forest, on the allotment of public land where he grazed his cattle.

When he found a wolf caught in his trap, he knew that the tracking collar the wolf was wearing meant that he was a very rare Mexican gray wolf

He then killed the wolf with a shovel. 

Credit: Shutterstock

Mexican gray wolves are protected under the Endangered Species Act there are just 114 members of this wolf subspecies left in the wild.

The wolf who was killed was just 10 months old and was part of the Willow Springs Pack a family of wolves that now no longer exists. Advocates say that this is partially due to the killing of this young male wolf, who was trapped in 2015 and could have grown to have a family of his own. 

The rancher just pled guilty to a federal misdemeanor for killing the wolf. He was ordered to pay $2,300 to the Mexican Wolf Recovery Program and was given one year of probation. 

But some say that the sentence the rancher received isn't enough. Dozens of wolf advocates have signed a letter to the supervisor of the Gila National Forest and the chief of the U.S. Forest Service asking that the permit that allows the rancher to graze his cattle in the forest be taken away.

Starbucks Has Ties To Company That Sells This Horrible 'Delicacy' "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Sharks are being killed at a staggering rate it's estimated that 73 million sharks have their fins sliced off every year and get dropped back into the water to die all because of a bowl of expensive soup.

Many people don't realize just how the shark fin trade is ravaging shark populations, which puts entire underwater ecosystems at risk. And until recently, most people had no idea that Starbucks one of the most popular coffee chains in the world, which also promotes its commitment to ethical environmental standards has a partnership with a company that still serves shark fin soup.

For the past 18 years, Starbucks has partnered with Hong Kong's Coffee Concepts Limited, which is owned by Maxim's Caterers Limited, a food service and restaurant company that has previously claimed it phased out the dish. But investigations revealed that the restaurant still sells shark fin entrees as part of its "secret menu."

Makefiles 101: how to use make as a task automation tool "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by Agto Nugroho on Unsplash

It seems like developers are afraid of using make as they associate it with the painful experience of compiling things from scratchthe dreaded ./configure && make && make install.

Part of this fear is due to the description of what make(1) does:

The purpose of the make utility is to determine automatically which pieces of a large program need to be recompiled, and issue the commands to recompile them.
Free Software Foundation The Linux Man Pages

Not everyone is aware that make can easily be used to manage tasks in your projects. In this article, Id like to share a brief introduction to how Makefiles help me automate some tasks in my day to day activities. This brief guide will focus on using make as an automation tool for tasks rather than a tool for compiling code.

Executing tasks

Lets start by simply creating a Makefile, and defining a task to run:

task:
date

If you run make task you will bump into the following error:

/tmp  make task
Makefile:2: *** missing separator. Stop.

And thats because Makefiles use tabs to indent code. Lets update our example by using tabs rather than spaces and Voil.

/tmp  make task
date
Fri Jun 15 08:34:15 +04 2018

What kind of sorcery is this? Well, make understood you wanted to run the section task of your makefile, and ran the code (date) within that section in a shell, outputting both the command and its output. If you want to skip outputting the command thats being executed, you can simply prefix it with an @ sign:

task:
@date

Running the make command again:

/tmp  make task
Fri Jun 15 08:34:15 +04 2018

The first task in a Makefile is the default one, meaning that we can run make without any arguments:

/tmp  make       
Fri Jun 15 08:37:11 +04 2018

Running additional tasks

You can add additional tasks in your Makefile and call them with make $TASK:

The Big One: New Research Suggests Risk of California Earthquake Higher Than Previously Thought "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


Geophysicists are hypothesizing that the San Andreas fault line in California could be the central point of a massive earthquake after new research suggested that the fault may be at higher risk than previously thought.
Researchers at Arizona State University have published a new study looking at the likelihood of a 7.5-magnitude (or stronger) quake occurring and rupturing the entire fault line.

Nebraska Wants To Let Hunters Shoot Mountain Lions Again "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The few dozen wild mountain lions living in Nebraska's Pine Ridge region have no idea that their lives are on the line right now.

That's because the Nebraska Game and Parks Commission is proposing to allow a hunt early next year that would kill 20 percent of this vulnerable population, or eight cats and this could be disastrous. 

Credit: Shutterstock

"The states current population is too small," Mark Elbroch, lead scientist of Panthera's Puma Program, wrote this week. "Overhunting small, most-easterly populations of pumas may effectively stop their natural eastward expansion and could cause extra conflict with humans."

It's estimated that of the 59 mountain lions in this region, 30 percent are still just kittens. The hunt would allow a quota of four female mountain lions to be killed, even though they may be mothers in the process of teaching their kittens how to hunt and survive on their own.

Credit: Shutterstock

The last time Nebraska allowed a mountain lion hunt was 2014 and it had to be stopped suddenly because too many cats ended up dead. 

"This is exactly our point," Elbroch added. "You cant add additional hunting pressure on small populations already suffering mortality from other causes. The public backlash over the initial hunt was high."

Ripple CEO Defends XRP Tokens Utility at Fintech Conference "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Lets be clear: Ripple Differs than XRP, Brad Garlinghouse, Chief executive officer of distributed ledger startup Ripple, argued during CB Insights Future of Fintech conference on Thursday. Garlinghouse opened his talk by shoving back against the arguments that the XRP token can be considered a safety, given its close connection to the San Francisco, California based firm. He also talked on the work the company has done to date in partnership with a selection of financial and banking companies. Maybe his strongest remarks came in response to some Question about if XRP is a safety for Ripple, a claim he along with Other Ripple workers have strongly rejected.

A senior official of the Securities and Exchange Commission recently said that bitcoin and ether are not securities as well as the lack of any comparable comment about XRP revived that critique. As he explained throughout the CB Insights event.

XRP isnt a security for many reasons: in case Ripple, the firm, shuts down tomorrow, the XRP ledger will continue to function, it is an open source, decentralized technology. If you purchase XRP, am bullish on bitcoin however we need to acknowledge. When we talked about something being decentralized, control is a key element. . He even went so far as to cast doubt on the SECs classification that bitcoin isnt a safety, asking how decentralized can it be? . . Three miners at China controls more than 50% of the hash speed of bitcoin, he claimed, arguing that the Chinese government can interfere with these miners and, as a result, have the skill to exert some form of control.

Heres How Bitcoin is the Least Volatile Crypto Asset "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bitcoin is less volatile than its cryptocurrency cousins, according to research that looked at five crypto assets from 2013.

Bitcoin Trumps the Rest

In February, the American Institute for Economic Research (AIER) compared the volatility of Bitcoin to traditional fiat currencies. It found that the average daily price change of Bitcoin with the U.S. dollar exchange rate against the pound, the euro, the yen, and gold was six times higher than the aforementioned fiat currencies and gold between 2016-2017.

At the time, the authors of the research wrote:

A medium of exchange that is stable in value and highly liquid, so someone can trade it in a pinch without taking a hit, allows us to better deal with uncertainty and helps us plan and coordinate into the future. Assets that are too volatile are therefore undesirable as currencies.

Now, over four months later, the AIER has said that Bitcoin is less volatile compared to Ethereum, Ripple, Bitcoin Cash, and Litecoin. The independent voice for sound economics looked at data from CoinMarketCap from 28th April 2013 until 4th June, 2018.

While all five cryptocurrencies we study are still quite new, measures of volatility, and changes in those measures over time, are important in assessing their potential future viability as money, said Max Gulker, PhD, who penned the AIER article.

According to the research, Bitcoin reached its lowest average daily price movement in 2016, at two percent. It then rose to levels not seen since 2013 when it increased to the four percent mark. Compared to Bitcoin, though, the other cryptocurrencies show a much more volatile start when trading began.

For instance, Ethereums average daily price movement was roughly four percent higher than Bitcoins in 2015. In 2017, this had dropped to around one percent, partly due to an uptick in Bitcoins average daily price movement. Notably, though, it wasnt until the first part of 2018 when the five cryptocurrencies were close together.

People Find Creepy Warehouse Full Of Bags And Can't Believe What's Inside "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Four years ago, when officials in Vietnam entered a warehouse they suspected was being used by a wildlife tracker, they had a general idea of what they might find. But nothing could have prepared them for the sobering discovery they were about to make.

As the investigators canvassed the space, they found pile upon pile of tightly-closed bags sitting on the floors, seemingly ready for shipment. They werent moving, and the rooms smelled of death and chemicals.

Credit: Facebook/ENV

Inside the bags were with the bodies of countless dead sea turtles caught one by one from the wild to be sold in China.

To see so many marine turtles, well, it was shocking, Mr. K, an anonymous investigator on the case, previously told National Geographic about the raid. It was crazy.

Other rooms were packed to the ceilings with taxidermied bodies, their once-stunning shells covered in dust and their little faces dried and shriveled. They were stacked as if they were furniture.

Credit: Facebook/ENV

Investigators were able to use the discovery to track down five other secret warehouses, where they found the same disturbing stock. In all, they recovered nearly 7,000 turtle bodies weighing in at over 22,000 pounds.

The animals were mostly hawksbill turtles, a critically endangered species native to the coral triangle region of the Asian pacific. There are as few as 8,000 laying females left in the wild today.

These turtles are fundamental in keeping seagrass beds and reefs healthy but their beautiful brown and yellow shells are heavily sought after to be turned into jewelry and other ornaments....

Monoamine involvement in the antidepressant-like effect of -caryophyllene. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

PMID:  CNS Neurol Disord Drug Targets. 2018 Apr 20. Epub 2018 Apr 20. PMID: 29676236 Abstract Title:  Monoamine Involvement in the Antidepressant-Like Effect of -Caryophyllene. Abstract:  This study was conducted to evaluate the antidepressant-like activity of sesquiterpene compound-caryophyllene (BCP) for the possible contribution of the monoamine and hippocampal levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF). Male albino Swiss mice were subjected to the forced swimming test after acute treatment and to the tail suspension test after repeated treatment. Hippocampal levels of BDNF were assayed by enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay. The anti-immobility effect of BCP was reverted by pretreatment with inhibitor of catecholamines -methyl-p-tyrosine (100 mg/kg, i.p.), -adrenergic antagonist yohimbine (1 mg/kg, i.p.), and -adrenergic antagonist propranolol (2 mg/kg,i.p.), but not by pretreatment with either 1-adrenergic antagonist prazosin (1 mg/kg, i.p.) or 5-HT1A antagonist NAN-190 (0.5 mg/kg, i.p.), thereby suggesting the involvement of the catecholaminergic system, but not of the 5-HT1A serotonergic receptor, in BCP's antidepressive-like activity. Furthermore, BCP increased BDNF levels in the hippocampus after 14 d of treatment. No treatments in this study altered locomotor activity in the open eld test. This study provides a new mechanism of BCP-induced antidepressant-like effect mediated by the central catecholaminergic neurotransmitter system that could be a candidate for clinical tests of new treatments for depressive disorders.

Watch: Muslim Passenger Erupts in Profane Tirade at Flight Attendant Over Turkey Sandwich "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A Muslim passenger on a Wizz Air flight from Luton, England, to Skopje, Macedonia, had a tantrum when the sandwich he ordered wasnt quite what he was expected.

The passenger launched into a tirade, calling a flight attendant a stupid f***ing b***h after incorrectly accusing her of serving him pork.

The man was given a turkey ham sandwich made from turkey and compatible with Islamic dietary customs.

In video footage captured by another passenger, the man became increasingly aggressive, which reportedly concerned fellow passengers.

Watch:

Despite the attendant showing him the ingredients list on the sandwich package, the man grew angry and proceeded to verbally berate the young woman, reports NewsWars:

This is not right, you should tell people there is pork, Im a Muslim, the man said. Its pork, darling What the f**k is your problem, stupid f**king bitch? Shes a f**king bitch man. She told me its not appropriate to touch my teeth, f**king slut.

You have given me ham, and youre talking to me rude. I just tell you its ham, you tell me its not pork. Its not nice, darling, youre supposed to be nice to the customers.

A senior male steward tried to calm the man down by explaining that turkey ham was a term used to describe the processed turkey meat, but the man continued his rant.

The crew eventually refunded the man 4.50 euros for the sandwich and two euros for the bottle of the water, which he kept, reports The Sun.

Tutorial purgatory from the perspective of a tutorial maker "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by Craig Garner on Unsplash

Last week I read How to escape tutorial purgatory as a new developeror at any time in your career by Tony Mastrorio. Its a fascinating read that definitely did strike a cord in the developer community.

The key takeaways in the article were:

  • Dont go through millions of tutorials just for the sake of learning
  • Abandon the comfort zone
  • Pick a project to work on, and learn the things you need just-in-time

This is great advice.

There is a point in time in your learning process where youll realize this:

You have the knowledge you need to start tackling the idea you have in mind.

You dont need to be a JavaScript wizard to build an application. You just need the basics, and the drive to solve the stumbling blocks.

Having a personal project you care about is the best motivation to overcome the obstacles that will inevitably come into your way.

Im a heavy podcast listener, and I especially like episodes where some person describes the journey from zero to having a product online. Many times, the person starts from zero knowledge and builds the skills right when needed. Not before, not learning too much stuff in anticipation, just doing.

Solving all the problems

How do you solve the problems youll step into? Using Google of course. Google is your best friend. Ive been developing professionally for 10 years now, and Ive always used Google and Stack Overflow to answer my questions.

But Google is just a tool, a dumb machine that will match pages to your keywords. Stack Overflow is just a web application that would be useless without the people that spend lots of time answering questions on it.

Behind those sites, there are millions of developers that took the time to write some blog post or answer a Stack Overflow answer.

My Last Frames of Fuji FP-100C, or: The Creative Obligation Not to F*** it Up "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For about a year and a half, every time I opened my fridge I saw my last remaining 10 exposure pack of Fuji FP 100C instant film, and every time I opened said fridge I was reluctant to take it out and shoot it. I did not want to waste my last remaining packfilm but I knew I shouldnt wait too long, because eventually the chemistry inside the film would dry. And since the film expired in late 2007, I was running out of time.

I decided to shoot my last pack of FP-100C (silk) on a warm and sunny day in mid-May. For the first four frames I photographed a few friends and gave them the prints but kept the negatives to scan them later, but because I was in a hurry I didnt let them dry completely which made them stick together and thus destroyed the negatives.

Realizing that I only had 6 shots left, I decided to wait for the evening to shoot the apple blossoms in the gardens beneath Michelsberg Abbey not far from where I live. After I had exposed the first of my four frames I was disappointed because I found the image dull and boring. My expectations were of course, high since I wanted my last frames with this wonderful film at least to be visually pleasing.

I had something in my mind like Steve McCurry shoots his last roll of Kodachrome and was disappointed when I couldnt find a composition worth shooting. I sat down and listened to the birds singing in the trees and thought what to do and how to do it. For about five minutes, I sat in a trampled down spot in the tall grass surrounding me and stared at the small purple wild-flowers that grew around me. I pressured myself to come up with something because the thought of wasting the last peel-apart instant-film I could shoot with my trusty RB67 on a subpar composition felt embarrassing, and so I decided to try multiple exposures.

This said, I kept my initial composition and only adjusted the exposure to accommodate a second exposure onto the frame. I wanted the deep saturated green of the grass around me to fill the shadows of my frame to contrast the white and pink blossoms. This time, to avoid the problem of sticky negatives I didnt open the developed sheets until I was back home.

A Turning Point in Our Understanding of Human Birth "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Just as we are learning about human nature from new perspectives, we are also at a turning point in our understanding of human births. Until now, the focus has been on mechanical difficulties. Countless textbooks have reproduced drawings showing the size and the shape of the fetal skull in relation to the maternal pelvis as a way to explain why the birth process cannot be easy in our species. If the main reasons for difficulties were mechanical, how to explain that, occasionally, women who are not special, from a morphological perspective, have their first baby easily within a few minutes, while others need a caesarean section after one or two days of tough labour?

The productivity boom

I feel like there have been five major revolutions in the software development world that dramatically increased developers productivity and ability to write and deploy production level applications with maximum efficiency.

They all solved major issues, too. Heres my breakdown of revolutions and the issues they solved:

  • Emergence of Cloud Services (IaaS)
    Infrastructure cost and scalability
  • Open source community, Conferences , Workshops, Tech Blogs, Stack overflow, and so on
    Limited access to knowledge
  • Versioning systems, Collaboration tools, Continuous integration tools
    Concurrent engineeringSystems discrepancy and integration hell
  • Containerized architecture
  • Serverless Computing Services (PaaS)
    Servers and systems administration

Each and every one of these revolutions has one common trait: they all give more control to software engineers. They do this by encouraging good practices and code sharing with a collaborative workflow, and they lower the need for expensive dedicated servers, System administrators, DevOps, IT support, and so on.

Great, but waitwhere is Fargate in all this?

University of Londons Computer Science Degree Combines Creativity and Computing "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Whether youre just out of school or high school and want to pursue a career in Computer Science or already working in the field and want to excel your skills and career, this programme will help you get there. The Bachelor of Science in Computer Science from the University of London will teach you to be a creative problem solver using cutting-edge skills like Machine Learning, Data Science, AI, Virtual Reality, and more.

Programme Director Matthew Yee-King explains how you can take a creative approach to computing with the BSc:

What is so different about this new BSc Computer Science compared to other
programmes?

Computing is largely about understanding what computers are and how they work, and about using them as tools to solve problems. But at Goldsmiths, we are also about creativity and understanding and influencing society. Our work involves applying computer science to surprising areas, including computational art, virtual reality, music, digital sociology and education technology. We are looking for original and creative perspectives of what computing can be. We bring a unique hands-on project-based style of teaching. This applies to a diverse range of interests, from data scientists to artists and musicians to social scientists and journalists.

We have developed ways to deliver this through highly interactive online courses (MOOCs) that have been taken by many thousands of students on Coursera. Being able to take this to the next level and provide a full undergraduate course is thrilling to us.

Project work sounds exciting! What might students be able to work on?

You carry out several projects during the degree, including a group project and a final major project. You select the subjects for this yourself. Recent on-campus student projects include a DJ training system that uses machine learning to automatically rate scratching ability; a simulated mycelium to design fabric; a video sequence generator using deep neural networks; an automated graffiti generator using artificial intelligence, and so on. For us, the critical factor in the study of creative subjects is learning by making and experimenting. Computers are incredible tools and the best way to learn about them is to make things with them.

Pi and the Meandering Paths of Rivers

Rivers run through our civilisations like strings through beads, Olivia Laing wrote in her stunning meditation on life, loss, and the meaning of rivers. There is a mystery about rivers that draws us to them, for they rise from hidden places and travel by routes that are not always tomorrow where they might be today. But this chaotic, civilization-strewing mystery may be underpinned by one of the most elemental mathematical truths of nature.

In her splendid ode to pi, the Nobel-winning Polish poet Wisawa Szymborska extolled it as the admirable number nudging, always nudging a sluggish eternity to continue. On the second day of spring in 1996, the Cambridge University earth scientist Hans-Henrik Stlum published a paper announcing his astonishing finding that pi is also nudging, always nudging, the bendy paths of the worlds rivers to continue their seemingly chaotic meanderings in a mathematically predictable pattern. His simulation, using empirical data and fluid dynamics modeling, found that the oscillating paths of rivers their sinuosity, calculated by dividing the rivers actual meandering length by the length of the direct line drawn from source to sea average 3.14.

Instead of Finding Your Passion, Try Developing It: Stanford Scientists "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

If you think you may have a passion for photography, try developing that passion instead of finding it. The shift in mindset could help keep you from giving up when the going gets tough.

Thats what Stanford psychologists have concluded after doing a study on the age-old advice of finding your passion. In a new paper that will be published in the journal Psychological Science, the researchers state that that advice may actually limit peoples pursuit of new fields and cause them to give up when they face challenges.

Mantras like find your passion carry hidden implications, the researchers say, Stanford writes. They imply that once an interest resonates, pursuing it will be easy. But, the research found that when people encounter inevitable challenges, that mindset makes it more likely people will surrender their newfound interest.

And the idea that passions are found fully formed implies that the number of interests a person has is limited. That can cause people to narrow their focus and neglect other areas.

Former post-doc fellow Paul OKeefe and Stanford psychologists Carol Dweck and Gregory Walton conducted 5 experiments involving 470 participants who identified as either techie or fuzzy (i.e. interested in STEM subjects or arts/humanities, respectively). Both groups read two articles: a techie one and a fuzzy one.

The scientists found that subjects who had a fixed mindset about interests were less open to articles outside their interests.

In a second experiment, students were shown an engaging video about black holes and the universe. They were then given a challenging scientific article to read.

The scientists found that students who had a fixed mindset about interests were more likely to give up excitement over a subject when things become challenging.

What this means is: if youre interested in photography, focus on developing your interest and skills rather than trying to figure out if its right for you. Having that mindset can help you persevere and continue in photography when you start hitting walls and facing challenges in your journey.

Six Great Enigmas of the Ancient Civilisations "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

We stand today at an unprecedented turning point in human history. In recent years two versions of ancient history have formed. One, we shall call alternative history, the other we shall refer to as official history.

The former ponders over a variety of anomalies and tries to make sense out of the corpus of evidence, i.e., the pyramids and timelines, why they were built, by whom and when. The latter conducts digs, catalogues pottery shards, and tries to defend its proposal there are no enigmas, and virtually everything is explained.

At one point perhaps as late as fifteen years ago these two camps seem to be engaged in an informal dialogue. That all changed after, 1) the Great Sphinx redating controversy caught Egyptologists off guard and, 2) the impact of Chris Dunns book The Giza Power Plant: Technologies of Ancient Egypt at the end of the last decade.

There is no more dialogue and no more polite, gloves on debate. The proponents of official history have taken an increasingly political and ideological approach to the issue.

Backpack-Sized Archiving Kit Empowers Community Historians to Record Local Narratives "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

An Archivist in a Backpack oral history kit (courtesy Southern Historical Collection, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill)

Much of our understanding of the past is based on archives, and who assembles those records, and decides whats worthy of protection. A new project at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hills Southern Historical Collection (SHC) is making archive creation more accessible by offering resources that can easily launch community partners on memory projects. Called Archivist in a Backpack, it supplies compact kits with basic tools for oral history and material archives.

Theres this sense that theres something arcane and a little mysterious about what it takes to preserve history, Josephine McRobbie told Hyperallergic. McRobbie is the community archivist at SHC in the Wilson Special Collections Library. Our experience is that history harvests are often the starter material that fuels larger archives aspirations in communities, and the backpacks contain what a citizen-historian might like to have to get started.

One kit is specifically for oral history interviews. While it has the expected audio recorder and tripod, it further assists DIY historians through interview question cards and a training guide from the Southern Oral History Program, as well as thank you cards to send participants. Another is designed for archival preservation and digitization of ephemera, whether photographs, letters, or diaries. A flatbed scanner, thumb drive for files, acid-free sleeves and folders, and cotton gloves for handling fragile photographs, are joined by user-friendly technical tips.

Bitcoin Just Got a Shoutout in a New US Supreme Court Opinion "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

That is not something you see every day: an opinion from the U.S. Supreme Court which makes reference to cryptocurrencies. On June 21, the Supreme Court issued a judgment on Wisconsin Central Ltd. V. USA, a court case involving a dispute over whether employee stock options could be taxed as a type of compensation in the exact same way that money would be. According to Ballotpedia, the subsidiaries of Canadian National Railway Company have lost their first court battles, with a district court and, afterwards, an appellate court, ruling that the stock options are taxable under the U.S. Tax Act.

On the other hand, the judgment made on Wednesday by the Supreme Court has verified stocks dont count as cash compensation and the case must be remanded for further proceedings consistent with this opinion, based on majority opinion issued Thursday. The dissenting opinion, drafted from the 79 year old correlated justice Stephen Breyer and endorsed by Justices Ginsburg, Sotomayor and Kagan, asserts that the character of what constitutes money is less rigid than the majoritys interpretation, noting that what we see as money has changed with time. . That is a notable debate coming from the more conservatively minded Supreme Court, setting a scene for what will be the very first reference to bitcoin at a U.S.

Supreme Court judgment. Breyer wrote: Additionally, what we see as money has changed with time. Cowrie shells once were such a medium, but no longer. Our currency originally comprised gold coins and bullion, however, after 1934, gold couldnt be utilized as a medium of exchange. Erhaps one day workers will be compensated in bitcoin or another statement raises a key question, given the origin: kind of cryptocurrency. . This type of the opinion, in this instance, has whatre the ramifications of this? . Though the opinion, in this case, has absolutely nothing to do with cryptocurrencies directly, the passing link nevertheless signals that at least some of those that make up the upper U.S.

The squirrel house by TEN in Norway "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Our dear friend and Street Artist Riccardo Ten Colombo, aka TEN, has just completed a new mural in West Norway where he was invited to participate at Moving Mountains festival, in the Kvinnherad community.

This years event was Hardanger fjords first street art festival and it included many workshops, murals, films and street installations by local and international artists.

This artistic initiative born with the aim to raise awareness and discussions concerning a wide range of issues impacting our planet. The title of the event was reached in an attempt to reflect the issue of melting glaciers, but also the human ability to overcome problems.

For these reasons, Ten decided to paint Rosendal Skateparks floor by creating an art work dedicated to the squirrel, in particular to the red squirrel, that it will most likely disappear in the coming decades. The extinction of this animal is due to the introduction in Europe of other predatory squirrels imported from North America by humans.

Following his distinctive technique defined as Triangolism ( namely the choice to use the contrast between pure colors, complementary colors, light and sh...

Bay Area Protests Trumps Child Detention Policy with Billboard and Projection "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The billboard after Indecline's intervention (photo courtesy Indecline)The billboard after Indeclines intervention (photo courtesy Indecline)

Is the US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) advertising its brutal practice of separating migrant families? If you were driving along Interstate 80 in Californias East Bay last night or early this morning, you might have seen what appeared to be a billboard for ICE flaunting its inhumane expertise We make kids disappear alongside the Munchian image of a shocked and screaming child.

The ignoble advertisement is in fact the work of satiric and shadowy public art collective Indecline, whose members scaled the billboard (which formerly promoted 1-800-Got-Junk?s ability to make junk disappear) in the night and transformed it into a provocative indictment of ICE. At the time this article was published, a spokesperson for Indecline said that the modified billboard was still in place.

Former Secret Service Agent Files RICO Suit Against Clintons, Soros, Podesta, Brock "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This report was originally published by Tyler Durden at Zero Hedge

Conspiracy theorists (and conspiracy factists) are running wild as infamously outspoken former Secret Service agent Gary Byrne has filed a Racketeer Influenced and Corrupt Organizations (RICO) suit against what some call the Democrat Deep State.

Defendants in the case include:

CLINTON FOUNDATION, CLINTON-GIUSTRA ENTERPRISE PARTNERSHIP, MEDIA MATTERS FOR AMERICA, CORRECT THE RECORD, AMERICAN BRIDGE 21ST CENTURY, CITIZENS FOR RESPONSIBILITY AND ETHICS IN WASHINGTON, SHAREBLUE, DAVID BROCK, WILLIAM JEFFERSON CLINTON, HILLARY RODHAM CLINTON, GEORGE SOROS, JOHN PODESTA, JONATHAN WACKROW, JAN GILOOLY and CLINTON GLOBAL INITIATIVE.

Quite a rogues gallery.

Heres the summary of Byrnes case

For the past decade in which relevant predicate acts were corruptly carried out by the named defendants as payback for Plaintiff Gary Byrnes role in the Clinton impeachment and his status as a Clinton enemy (for his temerity in telling the truth concerning obstruction of justice and gross abuse of power), along with their corrupt surrogates and collaborators (referenced individually and collectively as the Enterprise), David Brock and William and Hillary Clinton have been synonymous with criminal  behavior, malicious baseless attacks (using mainly the illicit and vicious defamatory tactics against perceived political enemies (like Officer Gary Byrne, the Plaintiff here) of those willing to compensate  participants like Brock) and coordinating by mail and wire to violate myriad Federal and State laws in the exploitation of Enterprise nonprofit entities they use for purely partisan purposes.

This Enterprise has taken such attacks to an unprecedented and chilling new level  involving illegal domestic human and electronic surveillance, and tradecraft such as lures run at Byrne in order to obstruct the Hillary Clinton e-mail and Clinton Foundation Investigations by the agencies of the Obama government, all against private citizens in order to assist Hillary Clinton become the 45th President of the United States, dest...

Lolcat, Colorls, Catpix, and other Ruby Gems to add color to your terminal "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

As well as making your terminal more colorful and productive through the prompt theme, font, and plugins, you can add even more features by using Ruby Gems, such as lolcat, colorls, and catpix.

To use them, ensure you have Ruby installed on your computer, and then you can install each one using the command gem install .

lolcat

This Gem adds a rainbow gradient to anything that you pipe through to it. The image at the top of the post pipes ASCII art text generated with the aarti Gem through lolcat to create a colorful heading in the terminal.

You can combine extra bash commands to animate it, in this case echo to print the string passed to it, -a to animate, and -d for duration.

echo I   Ruby | lolcat -a -d 500

There is a Gem based on lolcat called lolize, which adds the rainbow colour to Ruby output. One use of it is to generate more colourful logs for your Ruby on Rails projects.

The lolize Gem in action coloring Ruby on Rails logs

Colorls

This enhances the terminal command ls with color and icons. Below is a screenshot from its Github repo. This configuration is an iTerm2 terminal (Mac OS), with oh-my-zsh with powerlevel9k theme and powerline nerd-font + awesome-config font with the Solarized Dark color theme.

You can make it as easy to use as ls by adding an alias for lc to your ~/.bashrc or ~/.zshrc file.

Females Are Outperforming Males On Every Educational Level, And That Has Staggering Implications For The Future Of Our Society "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This report was originally published by Michael Snyder at The Economic Collapse

It is an uncomfortable truth that most educators simply do not want to talk about. Females are dramatically outperforming males on every educational level, and many are wondering what this means for our future. If men do not feel a strong sense of purpose and meaning, they can get into trouble really quickly. As I write this article, the vast majority of those that abuse drugs are men, the vast majority of those that commit violent crimes are men, and the vast majority of those that we put into prison are men. I began researching this article by looking into the fact that the labor participation rate for men has been declining for decades, but our problems run much deeper than that. Today, so many men feel lost. Millions of them dont have a sense of direction, millions of them dont have anything that really drives or motivates them, and millions of them are deeply depressed and greatly dissatisfied with life.

For a lot of them, it started very early. As Dr. Michael Thompson told CBS News, all across America girls are outperforming boys at every educational level

Girls outperform boys in elementary school, middle school, high school, and college, and graduate school, says Dr. Michael Thompson, a school psychologist who writes about the academic problems of boys in his book, Raising Cain. He says that after decades of special attention, girls are soaring, while boys are stagnating.

Girls are being told, Go for it, you can do it. Go for it, you can do it. They are getting an immense amount of support, he says. Boys hear that the way to shine is athletically. And boys get a lot of mixed messages about what it means to be masculine and what it means to be a student. Does being a good student make you a real man? I dont think so It is not cool.

Perhaps one of the big reasons why young males are so drawn to sports is because it allows them to do the so...

Colorful Cinematic Photos Capture the Vibrancy of an Enchanted Garden "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Colorful Photography by Xuebing Du

San Francisco-based designer and photographer Xuebing Du creates vibrant images of nature that look like something from another realm. The series of colorful photography evokes imaginary tales of an enchanted garden, where Du herself features as a pixie-like subject exploring and playing among the lush landscape.

Dus captivating self-portraits often feature backdrops of leaves, trees, and flowers that appear as single infrared tones. These electric hues contrast against the photographers pale skin and bright red lipstick, but often blend with the fabric of her clothing. Du styles herself to mimic the appearance of the various blooms, creating floral personifications. In one dream-like image, Du is pictured standing amidst a bamboo forest wearing a matching vivid green, silk gown. In another, the photographer is captured wearing patterned, rose-colored clothing that harmonizes with the surrounding bright-pink woodland.

The photographer explains, I want to capture characters in florals, the gentleness, softness and often times its toughness. I try to convey my vision as I see in each of them, the elegance of calla lily; the romance of roses; and the wildness of morning glories that grow on the walls. I focus on the details of each floral, letting the colors and textures come to life.

Before Traveling the Globe, See the World in Your Own Backyard "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Weve all heard of some of the worlds greatest and most spectacular places. Places like Yosemite National Park, the Grand Canyon, and Machu Picchu. Many of us dream of going to far away places such as Iceland, Santorini, Dubai, The Maldives, but for many of us, it is just that a dream! Something we have to save long and hard for. Something we are lucky to do just once a year.

But one thing that my recent visit to Galloway Forest Park in the South of Scotland really brought home to me, is that you dont have to travel far and wide to go on an adventure or to explore the great outdoors, or to appreciate the worlds beauty.

Many of us have so many incredible places right on our doorstep, yet to be explored.

I grew up in Carlisle, a tiny City in the North West of England, just a few miles off the border to Scotland. Despite living here most of my life, I had no idea that Galloway Forest Park was just a short drive away from me.

I had no idea that I was living so close to over 300 square miles of natural beauty. 300 square miles of wilderness, of forests and mountains, lochs, wildlife, waterfalls. I had no idea that I lived so close to one of only 4 places in the whole of the Western World deemed to be a dark sky park. One of the best places in the World to gaze at the night sky. Heck, until my recent visit, I had never even heard of Galloway Forest Park!

I had a really fun time there recently and I only explored a tiny, tiny, part of it.

Whats also great is that I camped there for free, in amongst all of this beauty, waking up to an incredible sunrise and it didnt cost me a penny. The car park was completely free too, meaning that this whole adventure cost me nothing more than a little bit of fuel.

And if I decide to visit here again and again. and again, theres still so much Id still have to see.

Even closer to my home, Im lucky to have the Lake District. A place that attracts visitors from all over the world. A place that impresses me every time I go and one that I never get bored of. Ive...

Texas Republican Party Endorses Marijuana, Medical Cannabis, Industrial Hemp Decriminalization "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Texas Republican Party Endorses Marijuana, Medical Cannabis, Industrial Hemp Decriminalization

By Heather CallaghanEditor

Wonders never cease!

Delegates at the Republican Party of Texas convention voted their approval on Saturday for platforms endorsing marijuana decriminalization, medical cannabis and industrial hemp.

Not only that, but the Party delegates are actually calling for a change in cannabiss Schedule classification by the federal government.

Forbes reported on Sunday:

We support a change in the law to make it a civil, and not a criminal, offense for legal adults only to possess one ounce or less of marijuana for personal use, punishable by a fine of up to $100, but without jail time, reads one of the partys new positions.

Congress should remove cannabis from the list of Schedule 1, says another.

A third asks lawmakers to expand an existing state law that provides patients with limited access to low-THC medical cannabis extracts so that doctors can determine the appropriate use of cannabis to certified patients.

And a fourth says industrial hemp is a a valuable agricultural commodity.

SARA NETANYAHU CHARGED WITH FRAUD FOR ORDERING $96K WORTH OF MEALS FROM GOURMET CHEFS "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

SOURCE: HAARETZ

The prime minister's wife and a deputy director of the PM's Office are indicted for violating regulations barring the ordering of meals when a cook is on the residence's staff

Sara Netanyahu, the wife of Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, was indicted on Thursday for alleged "systematic fraud" involving hundreds of thousands of shekels in connection with meal expenses incurred at the Prime Minister's Residence.

Sara Netanyahu was charged along with Ezra Saidoff, a former deputy director general of the Prime Minister's Office. The two are charged in an indictment filed at the Jerusalem Magistrate's Court with aggravated fraudulent receiving of an item or items, fraud and breach of trust. Saidoff was also charged with falsification by a public servant.

According to the indictment, the prime minister's wife instructed staff at the Prime Minister's Residence in Jerusalem to order meals consumed at the residence worth a total of 350,000 shekels ($96,000) from gourmet restaurants between 2010 and 2013 in violation of rules barring the residence from ordering meals from the outside during periods when there was a cook on its staff.

Investigators in the case gathered evidence that purportedly shows that the prime minister's wife ordered that the employment of the cook be concealed and also showed that she was aware that ordering meals from the outside for the residence when it employed a cook was a violation of the rules.

Sustainable Prepping : 5 Alternative Energy Types for When the SHTF "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

There are actually a lot of different types of energy sources to tap into after a disaster strikes. One of the major differences is that unless you have formed some kind of intentional community or have a group of like-minded individuals in your area, you will be the engineer, the mechanic, and the maintenance man all rolled into one.

To digress just a bit, this is why shows such as The Colony (the reality show, not the aliens), and Doomsday Preppers are productive for the introduction of ideas. Those ideas need to be researched and employed, in that order.

Lets cover some methods to generate energy and provide power, and discuss the positive and negative aspects of each one.

  1. Wood:  absolutely a mainstay after disaster strikes. Ive written several pieces on the benefits of wood stoves: for cooking, boiling water for washing, laundry, and drinking, and of course, for heat. For those with a fireplace and no woodstove, a set of Dutch ovens (cast-iron cookware) and a kettle that can be hung within it are good for starters. There are also racks out there for hanging laundry and taking advantage of the heat from the fireplace or the woodstove. The main problems with the woodstove are fuel and security. First, you need to lay in a good supply of wood long before either the winter and/or the disaster strikes. Secondly, the wood fire produces smoke, something that cannot be concealed, and this will alert others to your location.
  2. Solar:  Its always worthwhile to throw some panels up on the roof, as these can give at least a trickle charge, if not power everything you have. Undertaking this is fairly uncomplicated. During your spring, summer, and fall months, youll get a lot out of it. Winter is a different matter: not just for the snow, but also for the gray days where you wont receive that much light. There are even solar generators. This solar generator is a complete kit and all you need to do is point, plug, and power up! For the bug-out-bag, you can find portable solar panels that roll up for easy tight-fitting spaces.
  3. Wind: There are plenty of kits out there that will enable you to throw up one or more windmills, and these can take up the slack for the solar panels on days that there is not much in the way of the sun. Windmills also need to be maintained a little more, as they can be damaged or have a breakdown from the moving parts.......

Cheetahs New App Lets Crypto Investors Track Portfolios on the Go "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

ProPublica Wins Edward R. Murrow Award for Excellence in Innovation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Radio Television Digital News Association announced today that ProPublica won an Edward R. Murrow Awards for excellence in innovation for its Lost Mothers database, a collaboration with NPR. The national award honors outstanding achievements in electronic journalism.

Led by ProPublica reporters Nina Martin and Adriana Gallardo, along with NPR special correspondent Renee Montagne, the first-of-its-kind database was part of a year-long investigation on the maternal mortality crisis in the United States. The gallery was designed by ProPublicas editorial experience designer, Rob Weychert. Early into their investigation on why the U.S. has the highest rate of maternal mortality and severe morbidity in the affluent world, the reporters learned that, when a woman dies from pregnancy-related complications, she becomes nearly invisible. The usual research tools used by journalists, such as Nexis and Google, turned up surprisingly few news stories in which women were named, and obituaries rarely mention the cause of death.

To find the mothers, the reporters scoured crowdfunding sites like GoFundMe and YouCaring, verifying names with obituaries and public posts on Facebook and Twitter. They also published a callout, asking affected families to tell their stories. More than 4,700 people responded, including 4,000 women who said they had almost died themselves. Working with NYU journalism graduate students Emma Cillekens and Alessandra Freita, the team contacted family members multiple times over a six-month period, encouraging them to share personal details, photographs and medical records. These efforts helped the reporters create the Lost Mothers database, eventually identifying more than 160 maternal deaths in 2016 alone.

The series spurred significant impact. State and local lawmakers around the country, citing the work, have adopted a flurry of bills aimed at reforming how maternal deaths are identified and investigated. Indiana, Oregon, Maryland, Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania passed laws creating maternal mortality review committees to scrutinize deaths and near-deaths among expectant and new mothers, and make policy recommendations to improve maternal health. The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists, which sets standards of care for obstetrician-gynecologists, also released sweeping new recommendations for improving maternal care, including guidelines for doctors to see new mothers sooner and more frequently and for insurers to cover the increased visits.

Read a Huge Annotated Online Edition of Frankenstein: A Modern Way to Celebrate the 200th Anniversary of Mary Shelleys Classic Novel "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Born out of evening reading of spooky stories on a rain-soaked holiday, Mary Shelleys 1818 novel Frankenstein has resonated through the years into pop culture, a warning against science and technology, of how the thirst for knowledge can literally create monsters. If youve been binging Westworld or loved Ex Machina you are seeing Shelleys legacy, both filled with scientific creations that question their own reason for existence.

Just like those works are products of our era, Frankenstein did not just arise from a dream state-Shelley was influenced by the concerns, events, and news of her day.




Annotated for scientists, engineers, and creators of all kinds, is how the website describes the project, created in January 2018 by Arizona State University to honor the bicentennial of the books publication. Frankenbook gives readers the opportunity to trace the scientific, technological, political, and ethical dimensions of the novel, and to learn more about its historical context and enduring legacy.

You will have to sign up (just an email and a password is necessary) to actually see the novel, but once in, you can get reading. Along the way on the right hand side of the margin, a cluster of black dots indicate if a section is annotated. Click on the dots with your mouse and the annotation will appear. (The annotations are also available at the end of each of the novel's three parts for those who just want to read the novel straight through.)

Dozens of experts have contributed to the annotations so far, and opening an account allows you to submit your own to the editors for consideration. You can also filter annotations by one of eight themes: Equity & Inclusion (social justice issues), Health & Medicine, Influences and Adaptations, Mary Shelley (personal information about the author), Motivations & Sentiments, Philosophy & Pol...

Celebrating the States: The Rockies "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When I was working on the Midwest post a few weeks ago, I was surprised at my lack of knowledge about states in my own region. North Dakota, Indiana and Ohio feel removed from my life in the Midwest and I tend to exclude them when thinking about Middle America. Now that Ive been preparing and researching for todays feature on the Rocky Mountain states, its even more clear to me that I am possibly more in need of these D*S articles than our readers. While I can say Ive visited every region in the United States, the nuances and unique aspects of each state have been warped into generalizations in my mind. I love how writing these features is starting to change that for me.

Bank branch closures offset by growth of food banks, claims Boris "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Reports have suggested that banks are closing branches at the alarming rate of  60 per month. Approximately, 2868 branches have been closed in the period between 2015 and 2018. Boris Johnson, however, does not share the concerns expressed by intelligent people.

Poppycock nonsense, he said, We Tories are fiercely proud of our contribution towards growth in the banking sector. You only have to look at the proliferation of food banks on our high streets. Theres even one opening near me in Islington next week.

Even nurses are using them now. Thats got to be a spiffing endorsement, continued Boris.

To be fair, Boris is not without his own personal achievements. Unilaterally having proved that blonds do have more fun, if only because they are too dumb to realise their transgressions; he has also revived the otherwise archaic word, buffoon, bringing it kicking and screaming into the 21st Century.

When challenged that possibly, that the emergence of food banks was directly correlated to the Titanic-like launch of Universal Credit, he noted Er, thats not my department, before swiftly cycling away. And as the good Flagship initiative, Universal Credit, sinks further under the waves of unrelenting criticism, the original architect of its design has taken the curious unprecedented step to distance himself further from the policy.

Beagles are Docile and Trusting - and That's Why Corporations Use Them For Lab Tests

An illuminating report by Glenn Greenwald and Leighton Akio Woodhouse of The Intercept entitled Bred To Suffer, has shed some much needed light on the animal testing industry and the utter cruelty inflicted upon innocent animals for corporate gains and, many times, absolutely no reason whatsoever.

While Greenwald and Woodhouse focus on the dog experimentation industry, it should be kept in mind that dogs are not the only animals used. Cats, rabbits, monkeys, guinea pigs, rats, are also victims in horrific numbers. Most of these animals are bred for experimentation never to experience a moment of freedom or kindness to live a life of extreme torture and, when the torture is done, they are killed for no longer being of use. For these animals, a short existence is the best they can hope for. Dying at birth is a blessing.

Reports of Off-Target Injury From Dicamba Skyrocket as Summer Hits

By Brandon TurbevilleNatural Blaze

Troubling amounts of off-target injury reports are coming from across the South and Midwest of the United States from 2, 4-D dicamba spraying. The new reports are forcing weed scientists and regulators to urge farmers that are going to utilize dicamba to stay on label.

According to Texas A&M Extension Cotton Specialist Gaylon Morgan, cotton growers in Texas are seeing more dicamba damage to cotton than would otherwise be considered normal during this time of year. Larry Steckel, University of Tennessee Extension weed scientist has also seen a number of reports of injury in the Western part of the state and at least one dicamba injury report.

Dicamba injury complaints have been filed in Oklahoma, Missouri, Iowa, Indiana, and Arkansas according to the American Association of Pesticide Control Officers, primarily on non-soybean plants including vegetables, fruits, ornamentals, and trees.

Morgan states that applicator confusion about spray buffers is probably the most common reason of the damage in Texas. If there is susceptible crop downwind from your field, you cannot spray when the wind is blowing in that direction there are no buffers that allow you to spray, he said.

Drummer Really Doesnt Need Help from Singer Bashing on Floor Tom "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

SEATTLE Friar Radcliffe drummer Daniel McCleary was allegedly annoyed late last night by the persistent bashing of his floor tom by frontman Jeffrey Wilderman during the entirety of their headlining set, multiple sources confirmed.

Im pretty confident I have the whole being the drummer thing under control, said McCleary in between songs. Maybe it wouldnt be so bad if he used his own sticks but he insists on wrestling one out of my hand mid-beat. Then, once hes done fucking me up, he just throws my stick off to the side. I had to play half a song with a marker I had in my pocket.

However, Wilderman believes his on-stage antics add to the intensity of the bands live shows.

I fancy myself a renaissance man of sorts, what with my emotive floor tom playing its like that of the frescos decorating the Sistine Chapel, said Wilderman, annotating a book of Robert Frost poems. Dannys back there, and, yeah, he keeps good time but is he having a good time? Without me, this band is nothing more than four talented musicians playing their chosen instruments competently.

Other band members confirmed Wilderman has dabbled in their instruments at Friar Radcliffe shows, too.

Sometimes, during instrumental breaks, hell walk up behind me, yank the capo off my guitar, and lay his index finger over the strings instead, said guitarist Alicia Lisbon, wiping her fretboard of bourbon stains left by the bands frontman. Our keyboard player quit after our third show because Jeff kept headbutting the keys and helping.

Unfortunately, McCleary admitted Wildermans gratuitous instrumental forays has only elevated his resentment.

I tolerated the tambourine, the maracas even the mallet hed use on my crash cymbal. But hes going too far, said McCleary, attempting to tape a drumstick split in half by Wilderman back together. The most frustrating part besides playing off-rhythm, and louder than I do is that Ive offered to give him lessons for years, but he always turns them down.

What Life Is Really Like for a Venezuelan Mom "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

This report was originally published by J. G. Martinez D. at The Organic Prepper

Did you ever wonder what the life of a mother in Venezuela is like?

This is not a fictional story. It is a couple of days in the life of one of our best friends, in our country, under the current conditions. Her son suffers from diabetes. He is 12 years old and has lost one tooth because he is malnourished and needs a special diet. Well call her L.

The Morning

She woke up early, around 6 AM. After using just a drop of toothpaste, and a tiny little bit of what used to be a soap bar for washing her face, she dressed and went to her kids bedroom. He was already awake, but still in bed. Another drop of toothpaste, and using the same tiny bit of soap, he was ready for breakfast. This was just a piece of boiled tapioca, with a teaspoon of margarine, and a tiny bit of ground cheese on top. A banana, and a glass of water. Eggs are a luxury item, usually left for the weekends breakfast.

She walked her kid about   mile to school, in streets half empty, with very few cars. This is not surprising. There is no money for oil changes nor tires or batteries. There are express assaults often, usually with a couple of men on a small Chinese motorcycle (bought by the government and sold under subsidies for the poor people who needed a vehicle), with the one on the back seat jumping off the bike with a gun, and robbing the bystanders.

With eyes on her back, and very alert, after dropping the kid at school she walked to the avenue, just for trying to find a cattle truck or any other farm truck that are transporting people to the downtown where she worked. After texting on her old cellphone and saying she was already waiting for a truck, she quickly hid her phone inside her jeans. After 35 minutes of waiting, a truck appeared, loaded with people up to the roof. She paid to the chauffeur and the passengers helped her to climb up. A taxi is no longer an option.

Abundant Renewable Energy Makes Iceland a Crypto Mining Powerhouse "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Few countries around the world lend themselves to cryptocurrency mining. Iceland has always been a key region in this regard. Although it was never designed to become a hub for cryptocurrency mining, this new business model has introduced a few changes in the country over the years. It is expected the number of Icelandic cryptocurrency mining operations will increase in the future.

Iceland Becomes an Unexpected Mining Hub

Cryptocurrency mining requires various key factors to be both successful and profitable. A cold climate will certainly help to cool the necessary hardware. However, it is more important to have access to cheap and abundant electricity. Iceland checks all of these boxes and more. It also explains why this European country has become of the biggest Bitcoin mining hotbeds in the world today.

With the Bitcoin network hashrate growing steadily over the years, it is evident the concept of mining is still popular. That is a good sign, even though setting up such operations isnt cheap. Thanks to Icelands cheap renewable energy, however, recovering the initial investment can occur relatively quickly. Additionally, most existing mining operations continue to expand to accommodate more ASIC mining hardware. Generating Bitcoins becomes more competitive and difficult as time progresses.

Iceland has all of the accommodations Bitcoin mining firms need. Theres a reliable power grid,  a strong focus on renewable energy, and plenty of locations to set up shop. As long as there are both internet and electricity, setting up a mining operation can be considered worthwhile. This doesnt just apply to mining Bitcoin either, as a fair few firms are actively mining altcoins such as Ethereum and ZCash.

A Growing Industry Raises Concerns

As has been well-documented in the past, cryptocurrency mining requires a lot of electricity. That situation is no different in Iceland. In fact, some experts claim the domestic mining firms will use more electricity compared to all homes in Iceland ...

The Red Willow Womyns Family Society is a grassroots Indigenous nonprofit organization in the Cowichan Tribes First Nations territory of British Columbia, Canada.

City of Berkeley demands forced depopulation to halt climate change crisis that it claims is worse than the Holocaust "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By 

Leave it to the liberals to not only engage in mass hysteria over purported climate changes, but to also call for a host of ridiculous, overbearing government efforts to put a band-aid on the problem. Berkeley City Council members just put forth a motion, proclaiming that there is a global climate emergency and theyre calling it the the greatest crisis in history. The drama doesnt end there; according to the loony leftists, climate change is responsible for more devastation to humanity than World War II which is considered the deadliest conflict in history.

The Berkeley City Council claims that the U.S. has disproportionately contributed to the climate and ecological crises and to preventing a transition away from fossil fuels, and Americans thus bear an extraordinary responsibility to solve the crises. Among these extraordinary responsibilities is a call to thin the herd, at the behest of a city council from one of the most liberal cities in the country.

Hardly representative of the rest of the nation (and the rest of the scientific community, for that matter), the Council declared that depopulation efforts are our best chance at turning back time. The Councils resolution stated reversing ecological overshoot and halting the sixth mass extinction requires an effort to preserve and restore half Earths biodiversity in interconnected wildlife corridors and to humanely stabilize population.

Is there really a way to humanely stabilize the population? Further, isnt it a bit of a stretch to say that the government needs to get involved with how many children people are having? In May of 2018, it was revealed that birth rates in the U.S. have already reached a....

The Tactile Pull of Keith Smiths Book Art "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Keith Smith, Keith Smith, Book Number 11, Up (1969), artists book with photographs, drawings, prints, and transparencies (courtesy of Bruce Silverstein Gallery, New York; Keith Smith)

PHILADELPHIA Long before the ubiquity of digital technologies transformed the book, artist Keith Smith was engaged in prescient redefinition and innovation. Though Smith has worked for decades and produced hundreds of innovative photo-books and artworks, he lives and works in Rochester, New York, and aside from occasional shows with his New York gallery Bruce Silverstein, largely shies away from the commercial art scene. Its extremely fitting, then, that his medium of choice is the book, embodying the long held belief that books allow for a more intimate, personal, tactile experience. Intimacy is key to his works, which often feature self-portraits, images of his partner, and views of the interior of their home. An exhibition at the Philadelphia Museum of Art featuring more than 70 artworks plays on this quality with its title, Keith Smith at Home, recognizing both Smiths cloistered nature and the intimate themes present in his art.

$7K Resistance Is Capping Bitcoins Upside Price Potential "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bitcoins (BTC) bulls are struggling to push prices higher, even though a still-favorable short-term set-up on the technical charts.
Bitcoin climbed to some six-day high of $6,580 on Monday on Bitfinex, adding credence to indications which the cryptocurrency might be in for a relief rally.
The bullish bias has strengthened further in the last two times too, courtesy of a bullish Bollinger band breakout along with a bullish crossover between the 5-day and 10-day moving average (MA). In addition, bitcoin refused to embrace the negative narrative on Wednesday following the $31 million hack of South Koreas Bithumb market, indicating that the sellers are likely running dry.
Despite all this, though, the cryptocurrency has struggled to find acceptance above $6,800 in the last 3 times, as seen in the graph below.
Daily graph

Bitcoin printed intraday highs above $6,800 in the last 3 trading days (as per UTC), but still closed nicely beneath the $6,800 mark.
The repeated failure to scale $6,800 in a convincing manner forces us to contemplate the possibility of the bears creating a comeback, even though the charts dont see that occurring while BTC is holding above $6,550.
At press time, BTC is changing hands at $6,730 on Bitfinex.
4-hour graph

The graph shows BTC has made an increasing wedge   a bearish continuation design. A break below $6,550 (climbing quad support and 50MA service ) would put the bears back in the drivers seat and permit a drop to $6,000.
A drop below $6,550 would also push the relative strength index (RSI) beneath the ascending trendline, further strengthening the bear case.
View

The immediate outlook remains bullish so long as bitcoin is holding above $6,550.
On the higher side, inflexible resistance is mentioned at $6,943 (100-candle MA on 4-hour graph ) and $7,000 (psychological hurdle).
A downside break of the rising wedge pattern (below $6,550) would open the doors to $6,000.
A daily close (as per UTC) below $6,000 would introduce the upcoming major emotional support of $5,000.

FDA Turns Its Back on Women with Menopause "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Help us get Congress to step in and tell the agency to knock it off. Action Alert!

What if we were to tell you that there was a treatment for the effects of menopause that:

Sounds like a good deal, right? That treatment is estriol, one of the three main forms of estrogen produced by the body. With their safety profile and health benefits, it isnt surprising that one third of women who use hormone therapy choose estriol and other safe, effective, and natural bioidentical hormones to manage the symptoms of menopause. Unfortunately, the FDA is poised to remove access to these hormones and to leave ailing women with no other option but more dangerous alternatives. ANH-USA is leading the charge to protect these crucial hormones, but we need your help to enlist members of Congress to get the FDA to back off.

Heres whats happened. In 2013 Congress passed a law to update the regulation of compounding pharmacies, which make customized medications for individual patients, including bioidentical hormones treatments. The FDA has made ample use of this opportunity to restrict or eliminate access to natural medicines, including bioidentical hormones.

The latest attack has been launched by nominating bioidentical hormones to the Difficult to Compound List. The FDA is in the process of reviewing the nominations; when finalized, items on this list cannot be compounded. In normal circumstancesand perhaps if the agency wasnt beholden to pharmaceutical interestsmere nomination wouldnt be such a cause for concern. But the track record thus far does not inspire optimism. In a related process where the FDA and its advisory committee are reviewing which substances can be compounded, the committee, following the FDAs guidance, has voted to b...

Not Everyone Who Wants to Reproduce Will Be Able "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Common chemicals are causing sperm deformity and decreased sperm counts. Action Alert!

A new study suggests that when a mother is exposed to endocrine-disrupting chemicals during pregnancy, her son and the sons future generations may suffer from decreased fertility. This is the latest among a mounting body of scientific evidence that links these common chemicalsfound in a wide variety of products including plastics, pesticides, PVC piping, cosmetics, medical devices, and childrens toysto the fertility crisis we are facing, and its time for regulators to do something about it.

Weve reported on the fertility crisis a number of times over the years. Scientists say that approximately 90% of sperm in a typical young man are misshapen, meaning they are unable to swim correctly. Additionally, sperm counts have decreased sharply over the last seventy-five years. As one researcher bluntly stated, Not everyone who wants to reproduce will be able to. 

Theres a great deal of evidence that points to endocrine disruptors as a major cause of this problem. Quite simply, these chemicals disrupt the proper functioning of hormones. One study found an association between higher concentrations of phthalates (a chemical used in plastics) and increased damage to sperm DNA. Another study by Canadian scientists found that adding endocrine disruptors to Lake Ontario turned male fathead minnows into intersexual fish (fish with both male and female characteristics), which are unable to reproduce. Unfortunately, these are far from the only studies positing a link between chemicals and infertility.

Theres also evidence that GMOs....

Crypto Mining Mogul Hits the Big-time with Portable Mining Containers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Serial crypto entrepreneur Valery Vavilov of Bitfury has struck gold again with his latest venture by solving two of the main hurdles in mining cryptocurrency with some big black boxes.

Bitfury Founder makes Crypto Mining Operations Portable

The BlackBoxes which are sea containers that have been converted into giant, portable mining rigs hold one hundred thousand of Bitfurys signature microchips and are able to mine an average of fifteen tokens per month. Even at a million USD per unit 100 have sold in the last year and a half, beefing up the companies revenue for the previous 12 month period to $450 million in cash and crypto.

Vavilov along with co-founder Valery Nebesny, who started by designing an energy saving chip in the kitchen of their rented Amsterdam flat, examined the two most serious problems affecting crypto mining operations, electricity cost and government indecision on how to treat the nascent industry and came up with an obvious solution. Make the mining centers portable.

Vavilov spoke to Bloomberg about his BlackBoxes from Ukraine, one of the 16 countries in which his 500 employees are spread out, saying: We realized our data centers needed to be mobile, to be both somewhere and anywhere,

The company which says it expects its BlackBox sales to double this year also sells millions of its BitFury chips to third-party customers. Vavilov estimates that their microchips chips, which are made in Taiwan, account for as much as 15% of all Bitcoins mined, with 25% of that coming from the companys own operations in Iceland, Norway, Canada, and Georgia.

Blockchain will be Worth Trillions

Bitcoin makes up only about 50% of the major cryptocurrency market, including Ethereum and Ripple. Following the dominant force in cryptocurrency mining, Chinas Bitmain, Vavilov has plans to roll out hardware capable of mining these and other altcoins in the near future.

Bitfury is involved in mining, sales, and manufacturing but for Vavilov, the real motivation is the potential of blockchain technology. He considers the technology as important as the development of the internet itself and says its future is worth trillions. He was quoted in Bloomberg saying:

Trans activists furious after essay highlighting "detransitioning" appears in The Atlantic "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

If anyone wants to witness a small sampling of what "tolerance" looks like for trans activists, survey the reaction of their movement to an essay published by The Atlantic in their July/August issue titled "When Children Say They're Trans." Keep in mind, as you scroll through the waves of vitriol currently spreading across Twitter, that this publication is not a conservative one-it is a very liberal one. In fact, the last time The Atlantic was at the forefront of any controversy, they had just hired and then promptly fired the brilliant columnist Kevin D. Williamson (who was kind enough to come onto my podcast and discuss his book The End Is Near and It's Going to Be Awesome some time ago) for controversial comments about abortion. This, perhaps, is the source of their rage: A liberal publication daring to engage with trans ideology in a nuanced way, rather than simply spouting off a list of pre-approved talking points. Deviation from these talking points can attract a social media lynching almost immediately these days-even Kylie Jenner was viciously attacked for wishing her father Caitlyn Jenner a Happy Father's Day, and posting a picture of him from back when he was Bruce. But that sin was insignificant compared to the crimes of The Atlantic, which began an essay with the story of Claire and her parents-a cautionary tale about the dangers of heeding trans propaganda.

The Histories of Ten Colors Through Multiple Lenses "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Cover jacket image of On Color by David Scott Kastan and Stephen Farthing (all images courtesy Yale University Press)

Books and writing about color abound these days, which should be quite unsurprising, since colors are always present in our lives.

However, unlike recent titles such as The Designers Dictionary of Color and The Secret Lives of Color, On Color, a joint effort between humanities professor David Scott Kastan and painter and writer Stephen Farthing, provides us with very little chromatic eye candy. In fact, rather than merely tracing a visuals-heavy history of a determined shade, On Color considers a particular shade across multiple disciplines, including film and literature. Each of the ten chapters is devoted to one color, including black, white, and gray. And while the titles given to the chapters such Roses are Red, Mixed Greens and At the Violet Hour are quite corny, and thankfully this element does not extend to the contents.

HIVE Blockchain Aims to Become the Backbone of a Decentralized World "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Cryptocurrency mining is an integral part of the ecosystem. Without mining, most currencies would not be able to have network transactions confirmed in a secure manner. HIVE Blockchain is one of the companies keeping fingers in many different pies. Theres a lot more to cryptocurrency than just Bitcoin.

The Story of HIVE Blockchain

Most people in the world of cloud mining have come across a company called Genesis Mining. The company has over 1 million customers and primarily focuses on mining some of the top cryptocurrencies. Being one of the market leaders is only part of the companys plan in this regard. Their partnership with Foire Group to launch HIVE Blockchain a year ago has shaken things up considerably.

Unlike what one might expect, HIVE Blockchain isnt just about cloud mining. This relatively new venture is a blockchain infrastructure company. More importantly, it is also a publicly traded entity on the TSX Venture Exchange. Its a good example of how cryptocurrency and all of its aspects are slowly being embraced by the mainstream.

Among the currencies being mined by this company are ZCash, Ethereum, Bitcoin, and a few others. Expanding the reach of this somewhat niche market to more traditional investors has been quite challenging. Investors can gain exposure to cryptocurrencies by directly contributing to the mining process of specific currencies. It is also one of the only ways of directly investing in proven blockchain technology.

Shaping the Future of Blockchain

While everything has seemingly fallen into place the company, theres no time to stand still. Mounting comments regarding crypto minings electricity usage can also affect HIVE Blockchain. For the company, no immediate concerns are raised, although the team confirms not all mining operations are equal. HIVE CEO Harry Pokrandt commented in a recent ...

The Encyclopedia of Women Philosophers: A New Web Site Presents the Contributions of Women Philosophers, from Ancient to Modern "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

In a recent conversation with Julian Baggini on why there are so few women in academic philosophy, Mary Warnock notes that of all the humanities departments in British universities, only philosophy departments have a mere 25% women members. That number is even lower in the US. "Why should this be?" Warnock asks. She asserts that the problem may lie with the discipline itself. I think that academic philosophy has become an extraordinarily inward-looking subject, she says, If you pick up a professional journal now, you find little nitpicking responses to previous articles. Women tend to get more easily bored with this than men. Philosophy seems to stop being interesting just when it starts to be professional.

Its a provocative claim, one Im sure many women in philosophy would contest, though the more general idea that academic philosophy has become an arid practice divorced from real life concerns might have wider support. The data on women in academic philosophy presents a very complex picture. No single intervention is likely to change the climate, as Tania Lombrozo writes at NPR. Explicit and implicit biases do play a role, as do instances of sexual harassment and coercion by those in positions of power. But another significant issue Warnock seems to ignore is the way that philosophy is generally taught at the undergraduate level.




In the research on which Lombrozo reports, studies found that the biggest drop in the proportion of women in the philosophy pipeline seems to be from enrollment in an introductory philosophy class to becoming a philosophy major. At Georgia State, for example, women make up about 55 percent of Introduction to Philosophy students but only around 33 percent...

Senegal football team in trouble after tweets about barrow boy Sugar "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Senegal football team was in hot water today, after posting a series of tweets about Apprentice host and former Amstrad boss Lord Alan Sugar.

Recognise this dude from the 1980s computer scene, tweeted the team. Seriously unreliable Seagate hard disks, and an ill-advised entry into the gaming market. Mega Drive and Super-NES pissed all over it. Needed to work on his multitasking!

This guy looks just like the fella who owned Tottenham Hotspur in the 1990s, a further tweet noted. Very resourceful. Accompanying the tweet was a photoshopped picture of White Hart Lane with a load of second hand goods on it, including all the managers Sugar appointed and fired during his tenure as Chairman at Spurs, plus dozens of players, like Teddy Sheringham, Jurgen Klinsmann and various Carlos Kickaballs a term coined by Sugar for any player from overseas, who he thought came into the premiership on inflated wages.

The tweets have been deleted but the Senegal team were unrepentant: Its meant to be funnyI dont see what we have to apologise foryoure all OTT, they argued. Look, you need to smell what sells, its all part of the process, try and talk to the trade, yeh?. Christ, youd think wed just killed Bambi or something.

The Swamp Strikes Back. "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Each week, Robert Mueller's Wonderlandian investigation into "Russian Collusion" appears "curiouser and curiouser". Each week, it appears that the entire investigation never really had anything to do with Russian collusion, at least in the Trump campaign; only in the Hillary Clinton campaign, where all the investigators have been conscientiously not looking.

First, Mueller indicted General Michael Flynn for not telling the truth to an FBI squad that appeared unexpectedly at the White House to question him, when now it turns out that Peter Strzok, who interrogated him, said he had not lied. It also now turns out that former FBI Deputy Director Andrew McCabe may later have altered Strzok's interrogation notes, and then destroyed the evidence.

Mueller then indicted Paul Manafort for allegedly laundering money through an Alexandria, Virginia, oriental rug store -- a "process crime". Notably absent from it in any indictment was mention of Russia, collusion or even elections.

Moreover, the order from the Department of Justice, signed by Rod Rosenstein, stipulated one more directive:

"(ii) any matters that arose or may arise directly om the investigation; and

(iii) any other matters within the scope of 28 C.F.R. 600.4(a).

As well as:

"(d) Sections 600.4 through 600. l 0 of Title 28 of the Code of Federal Regulations"

As Judge T.S. Ellis said to Mueller on May 4:

"You don't really care about Mr. Manafort's bank fraud. You really care about getting information that Mr. Manafort can give you that would reflect on Mr. Trump and lead to his prosecution or impeachment or whatever."

Mueller's only indictments that did relate to Russia were directed at a nest of Russian sock-puppets who, in an apparent effort to influence public opinion, pushed pro-Trump tweets during the 2016 election. The crimes alleged were that the sock-puppets were foreign agents trying to influence American elect...

Inside Americas Doomsday Bunkers: Built To Withstand Apocalypse "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

by Mac Slavo; SHTFplan.com

Evidence that officials in the government are planning for an apocalyptic scenario is hiding in plain sight. Americas doomsday bunkers are built to withstand the apocalypse but kept quiet from the public, as the elites plans for survival do not include us.

First developed during the Truman Administration, in the early days of nuclear weapons development, the government decided that in event of an apocalyptic scenario, the ruling class must be able to continue to control the masses. COG (continuity of government) measures then expanded greatly during the Cold War. If the government is preparing for something, perhaps you should too. None of us really know what could go down, although a complete economic collapse seems possible at this point.

Across the ages, in every survival story, a disaster of some sort plays a prominent role. Sometimes the part is played by the government, sometimes it is played by Mother Nature, and other times, the role is taken on by a random mishap. If we have learned one thing studying the history of disasters, it is this: those who are prepared have a better chance at survival than those who are not. The Preppers Blueprint

St Louis Fed Now Tracks Crypto Prices on Its Research Database "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The St. Louis division of the U.S. Federal Reserve Bank is now tracking the costs of four cryptocurrencies in its research database. According to a statement on Tuesday, Federal Reserve Economic Data, an extensive database maintained by the central banks St. Louis branch, is now offering information points for bitcoin, bitcoin cash, ethereum and litecoin. The cost data for the well known and widely cited economic research database has been provided by the U.S. Exchange Coinbase and is updated on a regular basis, in accordance with the announcement.

In addition, the database makes available the historical price data of the four assets back to as early as 2014. The move to add crypto data isnt, perhaps, entirely surprising, given that the St. Louis Federal Reserve a centre for local, national and global economic research has never shied away from taking a concentrate on cryptocurrencies. Most lately, speaking at CoinDesks Consensus 2018 conference in May, James Bullard, president of the St. Louis Fed, raised concerns that the large amount of cryptocurrencies nowadays might bring the potential risk of a chaos of exchange rates which has been seen previously in U.S.

History especially throughout the civil war. The St. Louis branch had its eyes bitcoin since as early as 2014, when its VP, David Andolfatto held a seminar on the subject and notably commented at that time that the innovation is forcing traditional institutions to either adapt or die.

Why Predicting Suicide is a Difficult and Complex Challenge "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The sum of our scientific evidence indicates that, just like most other things in nature, the causes and predictors of suicide are complex and indeterminate. Hundreds, and maybe thousands, of things are relevant to suicide, but nothing predicts suicide much more accurately than random guessing. For example, depression is often considered to be an extremely important predictor of suicide. But about 2 percent of severely depressed people eventually die by suicide, which is only slightly higher than the 1.6 percent of people from the general United States population who eventually die by suicide. Such a pattern is consistent with complexity because it suggests that we must put a lot of factors together to account for suicide.

Full weekly report from Ben.

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

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 This is not just a random occurrence, either. The refugees are being handed false papers

Litecoin Futures are a Go on UK Crypto Exchange "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Litecoin (LTC) derivatives are a go in the UK. Trading platform Crypto Facilities announced that as of Friday, June 22, their new dollar-denominated service will allow investors to trade in futures contracts which have Litecoin as the underpinning collateral, with weekly, monthly and quarterly maturities.

Litecoin Futures Ready to Go in the UK

The announcement comes only a month after the UK based platform launched Ethereum based contracts, increasing the number of crypto-based products already on offer for investors to long or go short including Bitcoin and the Ripple token XRP.

Litecoin creator Charlie Lee commented on the move, saying,

Litecoin futures will open up LTC trading to more institutional investors. This will add to the liquidity of Litecoin and make it easier for people to get in and out of Litecoin.

Timo Schlaefer, CEO of Crypto Facilities, said:

We are excited to be launching futures on Litecoin, one of the most widely traded cryptocurrencies. There has been strong client demand for this product and we believe our LTC-Dollar futures contracts will increase price transparency, liquidity, and efficiency in the cryptocurrency markets. As digital assets continue to mature, we expect to see a greater number of institutional investors entering the marketplace.

Crypto Facilities reported to an unnamed source that the firm is expecting the trading volume of its Ethereum futures contracts to reach around $150 million in this quarter, accounting for around 10 percent of the platforms total. The move may have been responsible for a small spike in the price of Litecoin pushing it up near $100 earlier this morning but it quickly dropped off and settled on $97.80 at the time of writing according to livecoinwatch.com.

SEC Clarity may Include Litecoin

The announcement from Crypto Facilities comes only a week after the US Securities Exchange Commission head William Hinman made the public statement that neither Bitcoin nor Ethereum would be considered as a security according to the federal regulatory body.  President Concannon of CBoE global markets said the announcement clears a key stumbling block for Ether futures.

Energy Policy in Maryland Should be Redirected for a Brighter Future "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Methane Concentration (parts per billion) NOAA

Maryland moving in the wrong direction on energy

Editorial Essay by Ann Bristow, Baltimore Sun, June 15, 2018

Maryland is at a significant choice point looking toward our energy future: Aggressively build clean renewable electricity generation or lock electricity generation into 30 and more years of fossil fuel-fed utilities notably the dirty fuel with the clean-sounding name, natural gas. The first offers public health benefits, reduction of greenhouse gasses and thousands of sustainable jobs, and the second offers air pollution, public health and safety risks, and fewer and less healthy employment opportunities.

Two of our nations largest utilities announced they would no longer build new, natural gas-fired power plants to produce electricity because they are not cost effective. Instead, they plan to build large solar arrays, to inexpensively meet electricity demand. And last month, Rhode Island and Massachusetts awarded large contracts to purchase electricity from offshore wind. Literally, the world is waking up to solar and offshore wind potential.

However, Gov. Larry Hogan has set his sights on millions of dollars of investments in building natural gas infrastructure, announcing that Maryland would kick-start such development with settlement money from the AltaGas and Washington Gas merger. Mr. Hogan supported drilling under the Potomac River at Hancock to install pipeline to bring fracked gas from the Marcellus shale of Pennsylvania to an area of undemonstrated need for additional piped gas in West Virginia.

Marylands Department of the Environment sees natural gas as a bridge fuel, although NASA has demonstrated that methane, the primary ingredient in natural gas, is a more potent greenhouse gas in the short term than carbon dioxide. And the overwhelming majority of climate scientists note that the short term is when we need to take decisive action to reduce climate-forcing and harmful gasses.

As a commissioner on Marylands Marcellus Shale Safe Drilling Initiative, which studied fracking for Maryland, I have been asked why our governor would ban fracking in Maryland for public health reasons, yet underwrite harm to our neighbors in Pennsylvania and West Virginia....

All lawmakers on Capitol Hill make an annual financial disclosure but a new memo has informed them that any cryptocurrency purchase or sale that exceeds $1,000 must be reported within 45 days.

Congress Must Disclose Digital Holdings

Cryptocurrency, and its most well known token Bitcoin, came to be as a means to disrupt the global banking system. Many of those who initially embraced it were distrustful of the government and saw using the fiat alternative as a way to keep control of their own finances without federal interference. As its popularity rose and then exploded in late 2017 people from all walks of life were pulled into the investment craze.

This new memo from the Ethics Committee means that the public will know if their member of Congress is trading in digital assets, even as regulatory rulings over their status are still being debated. Some see the decision as a way to protect against future conflicts of interest, as when voting occurs on any bill that may affect the way cryptocurrency is officially seen by federal regulatory bodies.

Representatives elected to Congress, and their staff have been required to disclose personal assets for decades, including real estate and investments. In 2012 that was tightened further to include a full disclosure of any holdings in stocks, bonds or derivatives by members of Congress or their family members. Now as investments in digital assets such as Bitcoin become more popular questions of how they should be reported have arisen since, in many cases, they remain unregulated and undefined by the federal government.

The recent memo from the House Ethics committee also included guidelines on crypto related side jobs. Members of Congress are limited to earning $28,050 from employment apart from their work in the house. The memo has informed them that this cap includes crypto mining.

FIFA rules Luis Surez must be fed before matches "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

'om nom nom', as they say in UruguayAfter reviewing footage of Tuesdays incident in which Luis Surez appeared to help himself to a chunk of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellini, Fifa has instructed the Uruguay strikers handlers to ensure that he is fed prior to all future matches.

Ninety minutes is a long time to go without a snack, so its understandable that Luis began to feel a little peckish, said FIFAs head chef, Sepp Blatter.  Yet no matter how tasty an Italy defender may appear to a famished striker, we really must insist that he lunches before, rather than during, competitive fixtures.

This is the third time the in-form Liverpool forward has been caught grazing between meals while on a football pitch.  The South American foodie has previously demonstrated appreciation for both Serbian and Dutch cuisine by sampling prime cuts of Branislav Ivanovic and Otman Bakkal, but on this occasion opted for an Italian take away.

Uruguays team manager however denies that his star striker is any different from other players.  His appetite for the game cannot be questioned, said scar Tabrez.  Sure, not every player likes to spend the half-time break watching Silence of the Lambs, but anyone could make the mistake of taking to the field with his napkin still tucked into his shirt and cutlery poking out of the top of his socks.

To reduce the risk of Surez committing any future biting incidents, FIFA has recommended that teams follow the example set by the England defenders and keep their distance from the striker.

Amber deposits yield oldest evidence of frogs in wet, tropical forests "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Tropical rainforests are home to the vast majority of the worlds frog species today. Yet frog fossils from these moist environments have been incredibly rare, largely because the small animals have tiny bones, which make preservation difficult, and the wet conditions usually lead to their quick decomposition. This lack of frog fossil records has made it hard for researchers to build a picture of the earlier ecosystems the amphibians may have occupied. But now, within amber deposits in northern Myanmar, scientists have found four tiny frogs that they estimate became trapped within sticky tree resin some 99 million years ago. These are the oldest frog fossils known to have been preserved in amber, according to the team led by Lida Xing, an associate professor at the China University of Geosciences. These fossils, together with other fossils of mosses, bamboo-like plants, aquatic spiders, velvet worms and a dinosaur tail, recovered from these Myanmar deposits, provide the first definitive evidence that the amber-trapped frogs were living in wet, tropical forests alongside dinosaurs some 99 million years ago. The Cretaceous ecosystem they occupied resembles the moist, tropical rainforests of today, the researchers report in a study published in Scientific Reports. Amber fossils dating back 99 million years provide the earliest direct evidence of frogs living in wet, tropical forests. Image by Lida Xing/China University of Geosciences. One of the four frogs, which was trapped in sap alongside an unidentified beetle, has a nearly intact skeleton: its skull, forelimbs, part of its backbone, and a partial

Hiring A Cleaner Can Save Money, Sanity And Relationships "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Hiring A Cleaner Can Save Money, Sanity And Relationships

When I first became a mother, I spent a significant amount of time in mothering forums, especially those for stay at home mothers. I recall one mama posting about her regular house cleaning service, and all I thought was, How ridiculous! Isnt she home so she can help run the house? As a new wife and mother, I was still figuring out my role in our home. I remember laundry piling up, the bickering over who would get the dishes done, and the overwhelming stress of trying to deep clean the floors with a sticky handed toddler running around. In the end I decided it was just something I needed to learn to manage on my own. And I did. I managed for years.

Hiring A Cleaner Can Save Money, Sanity And Relationships

Eventually, however, the cumulative stress caught up with me. No matter how many cleaning schedules I tried, or how many kids' chore charts I had, I just couldnt get my house to a state where I felt comfortable. My workload increased, my preemie came into my life, and my husband worked out of town more. And by the time we became a family of seven, it was just harder and harder to keep up. One day I visited a friend while she had her cleaning service in. She wasnt wealthy. She wasnt a full time CEO. She was a budget conscious stay at home mama. But she knew that certain things have value, including her sanity. It was almost as though I was being given permission to try it out for myself.

How Can A House Cleaner Save You Money?

First, Im fully aware of the privilege involved in having a house cleaning service. This is an extra beyond food, clothing, and housing. It isnt something that will fit into every household budget. However, for some families on very average incomes, especially where theres a working mama, having a house cleaner might be a money saver in the long run. Of course, the financial planning class I took would tell me stashing the money away in an interest-bearing account would be a better investment. And that might very well be true. However, whats the day to day cost of not having a little extra help? For the working mama, it means time spent cleanin...

Bitcoin Price Watch: BTC/USD Approaching Key Break "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin price found support near the $6,620 level and recovered well against the US Dollar.
  • There is a key contracting triangle formed with support at $6,700 and resistance near $6,780 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is likely approaching the next break either above $6,800 or below $6,650 in the near term.

Bitcoin price is placed nicely above the $6,650 level against the US Dollar. BTC/USD may soon make the next move (likely higher above $6,800).

Bitcoin Price Analysis

Recently, there was the third rejection from the $6,800-6,820 resistance zone in bitcoin price against the US Dollar. The BTC/USD pair declined and traded below the $6,700 level. However, the decline was prevented by the $6,600 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $6,360 low to $6,850 high also provided support.

As a result, the price bounced back and moved above the $6,700 resistance area. However, bitcoin buyers continue to struggle to clear the $6,800-6,820 resistance zone. A break above this is needed for a push towards the $7,000 handle in the near term. At the moment, it seems like there is a key contracting triangle formed with support at $6,700 and resistance near $6,780 on the hourly chart of the BTC/USD pair. The triangle support is close to the 50% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $6,595 low to $6,812 high.

Bitcoin Price Analysis BTC USD

Looking at the chart, the price is approaching the next break either above $6,800 or below $6,650 in the near term. Above $6,800, the price will most likely visit $7,000. On the flip side, a break below $6,700 and $6,650 may increase bearish pressure in the short term.

Ethereum Classic Price Analysis: ETC/USD Surging Higher "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • Ethereum classic price gained heavy bids and surged above the $17.00 resistance against the US dollar.
  • There is a crucial bullish trend line formed with support at $16.20 on the hourly chart of the ETC/USD pair (Data feed via Kraken).
  • The pair is placed nicely in an uptrend and it could accelerate gains above $17.50 in the near term.

Ethereum classic price is moving with a positive bias against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. ETC/USD is placed well above $16.20 for more gains above $17.50.

Ethereum Classic Price Support

There was a major support base formed near $14.00 in ETC price against the US dollar. The ETC/USD pair started a solid upside move and broke many resistances, including $15.00 and $16.00. There was even a break and close above the $16.50 pivot level and the 100 hourly simple moving average. The upside move was such that the price even climbed above the $17.00 level and traded as high as $17.45.

What Makes Taxi Driver So Powerful? An In-Depth Study of Martin Scorseses Existential Film on the Human Condition "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The field jacket, the mohawk, the "real rain" that will "wash all this scum off the streets," the virtuoso tracking shot over the aftermath of a massacre, "You talkin' to me?": so many elements of Taxi Driver have found permanent places in cinematic culture, and almost as many have found permanent places in the culture, period. Thanks to its wide-ranging influence as well as its presence that endures more than forty years on, even those who've never seen the movie in some sense already know it.

What makes Taxi Driver so powerful? Lewis Bond, video essayist and creator of Channel Criswell, sets out to answer that question in the two-part, feature-length analysis above. Martin Scorsese's fifth film, and the second of his collaborations with Robert de Niro, Taxi Driver came out in 1976.




Adapting the film noir tradition for an even more cynical post-Vietnam era, it ostensibly mounted a grim critique of America. Audiences of the 1970s, especially audiences of New Yorkers, might have readily identified with the judgments of moral, social and urban decay bitterly aired by de Niro as Travis Bickle.

But before long, those first viewers surely realized that they were watching a work of art both more complex and more universal than that. Bond's reading of the film gets right to the study at its heart of isolation, hypocrisy, purity, corruption, desire, and vengeance, characteristics found in but hardly unique to the human experience in 70s New York City. "Martin Scorsese's 1976 film is a film that does not grow dated, or over-familiar," writes Roger Ebert in a 2004 appreciation. "I have seen it dozens of times. Every time I see it,...

How to test a Socket.io-client app using Jest and the react-testing-library "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by freestocks on Unsplash

Testing the quality of real-time Socket.io-client integration seems to have sunk into oblivion, maybe because the UIs had a long history of testability issues. Lets fix this!

Quickly google testing socket.io app.

The first two result pages (just dont bother opening the rest of the pages) are all examples and tutorials focusing on testing the server-side socket.io integration. No one is talking about the quality of socket.io-client integration on the front-end, how the User Interface will look when it receives certain events, and if the front-end code is actually emitting the right events.

But why? Does this just mean that people dont really care about the quality of their real-time apps on the front-endthe meat of the software? I dont think so. My guess is: Testing UIs was just too hard!

User Interfaces have had a long history of testability issues. UIs are never stable. The testing tools we have had available to us easily lead to writing very brittle UI tests. Thus, people tend to focus their time and energy on testing their socket.io apps only on the server-side.

But that doesnt feel right. It is only the UI that makes our user confident that theyre actually accomplishing the purpose of using our app. But then, unto us a UI testing tool has been born!

react-testing-library

It was a few months ago that my friend and mentor Kent C. Dodds released this beautiful tool for testing react apps. Ever since then, I no longer just love the idea of testing UIs, but actually love testing them. I have literally dug out and tested all the UI code I gave up on testing because of its complexity :).

In my experience-based opinion, the react-testing-library is the panacea for all UI test issues. It is not just a testing tool, it is a testing approach.

Note: If yourre not a React person, there is vue-testing-library, ng-testing-library and others, all built on top of the dom-testing-library.

The best feature of the react-testing-library is probably its support of UI TDD. According to the docs, its...

The Time Births Are Most Likely To Happen "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

What Time Are Births Most Likely To Happen?

A new study by City College London, University College London, and the National Childbirth Trust has identified 4am as the peak time for births. The study, published in PLOS ONE, analysed five million births over a ten-year period in England.

The Time Births Are Most Likely To Happen

Babies born spontaneously were most likely to arrive between 1 am and 7 am. Almost a third of the births occurred on weekdays, during working hours. The remaining two thirds of births happened outside these hours and on weekends and public holidays. As highlighted by the study, the time and day babies are born can vary, depending on whether labour begins spontaneously or via induction. How the baby is born (for example, by c-section) was also found to have an impact on the time of the birth. It is hoped the research will help hospitals to plan their staffing levels accordingly. Spontaneous births following labour that started spontaneously (ie, no intervention) accounted for just over half of the births included in the study, and the babies were most likely to be born between 1 am and 6:59 am with a peak around 4 am. These births were also slightly more likely to happen on weekdays than on weekends. C-sections accounted for 9.2% of births and these were most likely to occur between 9 am and 11:59 am on weekdays. Very few c-sections were performed outside normal office hours. This is not particularly surprising, as most planned c-sections are performed during the working week, and it is likely only emergency c-sections would be performed outside those hours. Births following inductions account for just over a fifth of the births; these were most likely to occur around midnight from Tuesday to Saturday. This type of birth was less likely to occur on Sundays, Mondays and days immediately following public holidays. The lowest numbers of births were recorded on Christmas Day and Boxing Day. The researchers found the patterns of spontaneous birth hadnt changed since the 1950s, but the rise in medica...

James Ballantyne asks, what is the point of youth work? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ill resist being among the first to respond.

james ballantyne

Whats the point of youth work?

A pretty easy to answer question- isnt it? However, I was asked to do a 5 minute presentation on this question and could have probably expanded it to a 150 credit module length of study. I imagine, knowing what the point of youthwork is worth knowing so we know how to justify it and plead for its continuation. Here is what I think the point of youthwork is:

Youthwork is about young people, first and foremost, it makes it different from school, from social services and other institutions as young people are and should be placed first and foremost as the point for and at which the activity exists.

As a definition I would say that youthwork is a professional relationship with a young person who is the primary contributor in their social context.

Youthwork as a philosophy is geared towards and biased towards young people, being with them, not just for them, and has young peoples education, welfare and community as its core. Youthwork is about developing positive purposeful relationships between young people and adults, and learn, and create opportunities through these relationships.

Youthwork exists within the local community as it is affected by it, as young people learn to use, accept or reject the resources in their community, as youthworkers our role is to help young people navigate through these choices and also remove barriers that prevent them from participation.

The point of youthwork is to believe in young people and to work with them...

Ripple Price Analysis: XRP/USD Remains in Uptrend "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Highlights

  • Ripple price stayed above the $0.5250 support and bounced back against the US dollar.
  • There is a crucial ascending channel forming with support at $0.5380 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair (data source from Kraken).
  • The pair is currently in an uptrend and it is likely to accelerate gains above $0.5500 in the near term.

Ripple price is moving nicely against the US Dollar and Bitcoin. XRP/USD may perhaps continue to move higher above the $0.5500 resistance.

Ripple Price Trend

Recently, there was a downside reaction below the $0.5300 level in Ripple price against the US Dollar. The XRP/USD pair traded towards the $0.5250 support area where buyers appeared. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last wave from the $0.5105 low to $0.5615 high also acted as a support. XRP price bounced back from the $0.5250 support and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

It climbed back above the $0.5300 resistance with positive signs. During the upside, the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5611 high to $0.5234 low. At the moment, the price is trading just below the $0.5500 resistance, which is preventing an upside break. Additionally, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $0.5611 high to $0.5234 low is also acting as a hurdle for buyers. Should there be a break above $0.5500, the price may perhaps move past $0.5600. More importantly, there is a crucial ascending channel forming with support at $0.5380 on the hourly chart of the XRP/USD pair.

Ripple Price Analysis XRP USD

Looking at the chart, the price remains well supported above $0.5350. Below this, the price might move back towards the last swing low of $0.5250 in the near term.

Intuitive Astrology: Mars Retrograde 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Mars goes retrograde from June 26-August 27, 2018 in the signs of Aquarius and Capricorn.

Mars is the planet of action and motivation, so when it shifts into retrograde we feel the effects strongly. Things appear to slow down and we may lose momentum or our motivation to move forward. Even though this may seem like a hinderance, it really is a gift.

During Mars Retrograde, the Universe is really giving us an opportunity to pause and review the actions of our past before moving ahead.

Mars Retrograde asks us to assess whether our actions are truly serving us and if they are helping or hindering us in creating the life of our dreams.

So often we take action from a place of habit rather than truth. So often we fall into autopilot, and never really stop to question what we are doing and where we are heading.

Under Mars Retrograde we are all going to be called to pay attention to the direction of our lives, and to assess the consequences of our actions.

All actions have consequences, and those consequences are either supporting a life that we want, or supporting a life that we dont want.

Our actions are either raising us up to be the best, or they are pulling us down and causing us to repeat the same cycles again and again.

Under the energy of Mars Retrograde, we are all being given the time we need to check in with ourselves and to realign with our highest truth and highest selves.

When we are aligned with our highest self, we always know the right actions to take, and we are able to trust and listen to the wisdom of our heart with much more ease.

Aligning with our highest self takes discipline and practice. It is often tools like meditation or journaling that help us to get there. But sometimes, even the simplest action of placing your hand over your heart, taking a few deep breaths, and asking yourself how you are feeling can be enough to tune in and get into a state of alignment.

Being in alignment is about being aware of your body, your mind, your heart, and your soul. It is about finding your stillness from within, so you can see things clearly, and feel things clearly.

It is only through aligning in this way on a daily basis that you will be able to find the right and best actions for you, and create the highest destiny of your life.

Rapper XXXTentacion found ALIVE after faking his own death to promote latest album No Pulse "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Fans mourn the loss of XXXTentacion, who was believed to have been murdered outside a Florida vape shop. Leaked texts reveal Fans mourn the loss of XXXTentacion, who was believed to have been murdered outside a Florida vape shop. Leaked texts reveal X is laying low until court dates blow over.

MIAMI, Fla. New documents suggest depression-rapper XXXTentacion is alive and well after a mass media freakout blew a promotional stunt out of proportion this week.

The 20-year-old raper, whose real name is Jahseh Onfroy, was thought to have been gunned down in a Florida robbery.

Authorities said Onfroy was leaving a vape shop shortly before 4 p.m. when two men in a dark SUV shot and killed him.

Although he has not been heard from since the incident, phone records from the victim in the car apparently a die-hard fan suggest the murder was set-up and agreed upon by all parties involved.

The coroners report uncovered a digital contract found on an iPhone X belonging to the deceased look-alike in Onfroys car. The contract, they said, promised to make the death look as much like a hit on Onfroy himself as possible, and records on the phone show a history of bitcoin payments to dark web contract killers hired to do the job. The suspects are still at large.

At the time of the faking of his death, XXXTentacion was awaiting trial for beating his pregnant girlfriend, another stunt his publicist hoped would bring even more attention to the lackluster albums release.

XXXTentacion knew beating his girlfriend would bum a lot of people out, like when they heard Kanye supported Trump, Mike Rogers, Onfroys publicist said. And just like with Kanye, many suspected Xs attempts to cause his girlfriend to miscarry were efforts to promote his upcoming album, No Pulse. The media who dont understand X also dont understand just how far X is willing to go to please his adoring fans. Rogers winked to an unseen camera.

Because beating pregnant women left a bad taste in even his most ardent fans mouths, before faking his death, Onfroy made sure to publish an Instagram Live video in which he talks about how he wants to be remembered.

Cryptocurrency Trading Update: Ethereum Classic Leading the Recovery "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

FOMO Moments

Current performing altcoins are Ethereum Classic, Tron, Nano, and Basic Attention Token.

The aftermath of the Bithumb hack did not have a long lasting effect on markets fortunately and they are creeping up today. Total market cap is edging back towards $300 billion but taking its time. Bitcoin has recovered all losses and is up 2.2% on the day to $6,780 and Ethereum is performing even better with a 3.6% rise to $540. It is too early to say whether the previous third big dip of the year was the last. Altcoins are generally in the green at the moment but the only one in double figures at the time of writing is Ethereum Classic.

Coinmarketcap is reporting a 14% increase in ETC over the past 24 hours making it the leading altcoin in the top 25 during Asian trading. Ethereum Classic is currently trading at $17.09, up from $15 this time yesterday. Over the past seven days ETC has jumped 25% from $13.66 this time last Thursday. During the past 30 days however it has lost 5% falling from just over $18 the same time last month. Against Bitcoin ETC has gained 11.5% on the day to 253000 satoshis from 226700 sats this time yesterday. Weekly gains on BTC have been around 20% from 211000 satoshis this time last week.

Momentum is likely coming from the Coinbase support and announcement that ETC will be the next digital asset that it lists. What is a notable coincidence however is that the announcement was made just three days before the SEC declared that Ethereum was not a security indicating that Coinbase may have already been aware of this. ETC is likely to continue upwards until it gets listed on Coinbase unless the bears grab hold of the markets in force again.

OKEx is currently the most popular exchange for ETC trade with over 27% of the total volume and Binance is second with around 12%. That daily volume has increased from $285 million to $387 million over the past 24 hours. Ethereum Classics market cap has also increased as a result and is currently at $1.75 billion positioning it at 16th in the charts.

Total crypto market capitalization has climbed 3% on the day and is currently $291 billion. There is a lot of speculation of a recovery but in general the long term trend is still bearish. Looking back at the six month chart we are still near the bottom of the third di...

This weird take on women pundits at the World Cup got the two-footed tackles it deserved "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

For the first time at this World Cup both the BBC (Alex Scott) and ITV (Eni Aluko) have had women pundits on their teams and most people have been very happy with it.

Rave reviews, step forward for diversity, breath of fresh air, raised the bar thats the sort of thing people have been saying.

Not Simon Kelner though, the former editor of the Independent who would rather the World Cup pundits club remained a men only affair.

Heres a little bit of what he has to say (read the whole thing here).

Eni Aluko and Alex Scott have shown themselves to be knowledgable and enthusiastic I would only question the insight they offer. Womens football is a very different game from that played at the World Cup, much less intense and physical, with very different tactical exigencies. Im not saying that womens football isnt entertaining or relevant, but its like getting a netball player to discuss major league basketball.

Hmm, well, maybe. Heres how people responded online.

Exiting the Reincarnation System "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

We have all heard about the tunnel of light that our soul follows upon leaving the physical body, but what is the true meaning of the life review?

Why does a life review almost always involve having us continuously looping back into this 3rd dimensional reality and what can we do to stop these cycles of reincarnation?

Commonalities Within The Near Death Experience

Just about every person who has a near death experience will say that they didnt want to come back to Earth and that the other side of the veil felt like home. So, if everyone feels this content on the other side of the veil, then why do we keep coming back to this hellhole?

As evidenced by thousands of near death experiences, there is a common theme that people experience upon leaving the physical body:

  • The initial death
  • The tunnel and the white light
  • The other side of the tunnel
  • Meeting beings including angels, guides, friends and family
  • Your life review
  • Getting sent back to earth
  • Lessons learned from the other side

The tunnel of light is so appealing because it gives us the opportunity to meet with loved ones have predeceased us.

The feeling of love is described as being magnified much more than anything we can humanly experience in this 3rd dimensional reality. In reality, the tunnel of light is a soul harvester that keeps recycling your soul along with the energy of your physical body upon reincarnation.

The Life Review

Part of this process involves a life review, where you see your life in a panoramic, 360 degree view of everything you did in this most recent incarnation.  Then, you see your life from the perspective of everyone you met within your previous incarnation.

You may see how you hurt someones feeling when seeing your life from their perspective or you might see how much happiness you brought someone else after doing a kind deed for them without expecting anything in return.

Many times, you will be with a Source-like being who appears to be all-loving and will laugh with you a...

The Wasabi You're Eating May Not Be Real Wasabi "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Wasabi (Wasabia japonica) is a member of the Brassicaceae family, commonly called the mustard family. It is native to Japan, where it thrives in cool mountain streams with lots of shade and running water. It is prized for its stem which grows to around 2 to 4 inches in diameter and 6 to 12 inches in length, and this is where the actual wasabi condiment comes from.1 Due to its very specific growing conditions, experts consider wasabi to be one of the hardest plants on the planet to cultivate.2

The history of wasabi goes back to prehistoric Japan. Theres archaeological evidence suggesting that during 14,000 B.C. to 400 B.C., the Japanese already utilized wasabi not for culinary purposes, but for medicinal applications. It is believed that Utogi, a village up north in the Abe River, Shizuoka Prefecture, is the birthplace of wasabi.3

You may have tasted wasabi before, and so may be familiar with its spicy flavor and very strong aroma that you won't find anywhere else. But chances are that the wasabi you've eaten is just an imitation composed of horseradish, mustard powder and food coloring.4

Real wasabi, on the other hand, is still hot and doesn't leave a burning aftertaste. It's so fresh that you'll need to serve it right before eating, because it will lose its iconic flavor within 15 minutes.5 You'll also be surprised to know that real wasabi contains plenty of nutrients essential for optimal health, such as:6

Suicide Is on the Rise Know the Warning Signs, and How to Help "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

The recent suicides of fashion designer Kate Spade and celebrity chef and TV personality Anthony Bourdain,1 which occurred within days of each other, have reignited a much-needed public discussion about suicide, mental illness and its treatment. As noted by Dr. Anne Schuchat, principal deputy director of the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), depression is not a condition that is related to success or failure. No one is immune.2

Statistics also reveal suicide rates have risen sharply across the U.S. since the early 2000s, prompting health authorities to call for a comprehensive approach to addressing depression.3

However, while a number of headlines scream for new drug treatment,4 I believe well get nowhere fast unless we start to address mental health from a more holistic perspective. It seems quite clear that antidepressants, in addition to not working very well (or in some cases at all), are actually part of the problem thanks to their side effects.

Meanwhile, nutritional deficiencies, a decline in social interaction brought about by increasing reliance on social media and technology, excessive exposure to electromagnetic fields (EMFs), lack of sleep, lack of life purpose or spiritual connection and chronic, unresolved stress are just some of the factors that can contribute to depression, none of which can be addressed by new or more drugs. Specific medical conditions, such as cancer, heart disease, diabetes and stroke are also linked to a higher risk of major depressive disorder.

Spades Suicide Took Those Closest to Her by Surprise

According to Spades husband and business partner, Andy Spade, Kate had struggled with depression and anxiety for several years, and was taking medication for these issues.5,6 The couple separated 10 months ago but lived within blocks of each other, met on a daily basis and had never even discussed divorce, according to Andy, who stressed she did not have an alcohol probl...

Here's How Alcohol Can Increase Your Risk for Alzheimer's "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By Dr. Mercola

Drinking alcohol has been found to have both a protective and damaging effect on the brain, depending on which study you read and how much alcohol is consumed. The jury is still out on whether light or moderate consumption may be good for your brain, but it's becoming increasingly clear that heavy drinking is not. Researchers from the University of Illinois at Chicago even revealed how alcohol may increase your risk of developing Alzheimer's disease, by disrupting the way amyloid beta is cleared.

Amyloid beta is a protein implicated in Alzheimer's disease that can clump together in the brain, building up into groups of clumps or a sticky plaque that may disrupt cell-to-cell signaling.1 The study, published in the Journal of Neuroinflammation,2 reveals that binge drinking or heavy alcohol consumption may make it more likely that the brain will accumulate these damaging proteins, contributing to the development of Alzheimer's disease.

Alcohol May Disrupt Your Brain's Ability to Clear Harmful Amyloid Beta

The study focused on rat microglial cells, which are immune system cells in the brain and spinal cord that actively work to clear amyloid beta in a process known as phagocytosis. Researchers exposed the microglial cells to alcohol (in a level comparable to that found in people who drink heavily or binge drink), inflammatory cytokines or a combination of alcohol and cytokines for 24 hours.

The expression of over 300 genes was altered following exposure to alcohol, while exposure to cytokines resulted in changes in more than 3,000 genes and the combined alcohol and cytokines exposure caused changes in over 3,500 genes. Many of the altered genes were involved in phagocytosis and inflammation.3 Notably, microglial phagocytosis was also affected by alcohol, decreasing by about 15 percent after one hour of exposure.

Although the tests were performed in isolated rat cells, which means real-life alcohol consumption in humans may lead to a different result, they suggest that alcohol may hinder the microglia's ability to clear amyloid beta, thereby increasing the risk of Alzheimer's. Speaking with Newsweek, the study's lead author, Douglas Feinstein, professor of anesthesiology in the University of Illinois at Chicago College of...

Tron (TRX) Price Watch: Correction Done, Aiming Higher "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Tron Price Key Highlights

  • Tron price bounced off the area of interest marked in an earlier post.
  • Price is now making its way up to the swing high and the Fib extension tool shows the next upside targets.
  • Technical indicators also support the idea of more gains for Tron.

Tron price bounced off the resistance-turned-support region at the 0.04500 mark as expected and is aiming for new highs.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA crossed above the longer-term 200 SMA to confirm that the path of least resistance is to the upside. In other words, the climb is more likely to resume than to reverse. After all, Tron price formed and confirmed an inverse head and shoulders pattern to signal that an uptrend is underway.

Applying the Fibonacci extension tool reveals the next upside targets. Price has already moved past the 38.2% extension and is closing in on the 50% extension at 0.05076. Stronger selling pressure could take it up to the 61.8% extension at 0.05200 or the 78.6% extension near 0.05400. The full extension is located just past the 0.05600 level.

RSI is on the move up to show that theres buying pressure left. This might be enough to keep bulls in control until Tron price reaches the next potential resistance levels before buyers book profits. Stochastic is also on the move up so Tron price might follow suit, but this oscillator is dipping into overbought territory.

Bitcoin (BTC) Price Watch: Imminent Rising Wedge Breakout "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Bitcoin Price Key Highlights

  • Bitcoin price has formed higher lows and slightly higher highs to create a rising wedge on its 1-hour chart.
  • Price is bouncing off resistance and might be due for another test of support.
  • Bitcoin price is also nearing the peak of the formation so a breakout might happen soon.

Bitcoin price might be gearing up for a break from its rising wedge pattern, but technical indicators are giving mixed signals.

Technical Indicators Signals

The 100 SMA is above the longer-term 200 SMA to indicate that the path of least resistance is to the upside. In other words, an upside break might be more likely to happen than a break below support.

If so, bitcoin price could be in for a steeper uptrend, possibly one thats the same height as the wedge formation that spans $6,100 to $6,900. The 100 SMA also lines up with the bottom of the wedge to add to its strength as a floor.

However, RSI looks ready to turn lower as it nears overbought levels. This suggests that bullish momentum could fade soon as buyers start to feel exhausted, likely allowing sellers to take over. Stochastic already seems to be on its way down to signal that bearish pressure is starting to come into play.

Winklevoss Brothers Score Another Crypto Investment Patent "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Crypto exchange Gemini founders Tyler and Cameron Winklevoss have long sought the creation of a bitcoin exchange traded fund. And while that procedure remains in first, a firm attached to the brothers has won another U.S. Patent related to the creation of exchange traded products tied to cryptocurrencies and digital assets. The patent was granted at a company called Winklevoss IP LLP, and the two Winklevoss brothers are comprised as the inventors along with Evan Louis Greebel, Kathleen Hill Moriarty and Gregory Elias Xethalis. The patent, awarded on June 19, details a method for supplying an exchange traded merchandise holding digital mathematics based assets and also the issue of shares tied to that ETP.

It adds to the body of IP the Winklevosses have sought to get, although it isnt completely clear when or how a concepts will be applied to real world products. An ETP, like an exchange traded fund, is a type of security, the price of which is derived from other investments tools in this case, cryptocurrencies. As CoinDesk previously reported, the Winklevoss brothers won a patent last month for a system that settles transactions for ETP tied to cryptocurrencies. Like the other patent, this weeks award names a wide range of cryptocurrencies, from important ones such as bitcoin and monero to obscure ones such as BBQcoin.

Publicly available data shows this weeks patent would be the 7th crypto associated patent the Winklevoss brothers have obtained, with the very first being granted in December of last year. The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission once denied a bid suggested by the Winklevoss brothers in March 2017 to list a bitcoin tied exchange traded fund, mentioning the principles of a national securities exchange be designed to prevent fraudulent and manipulative acts and practices and also to defend investors and the public interest.

Section 1.  Policy.  It is the policy of this Administration to rigorously enforce our immigration laws.  Under our laws, the only legal way for an alien to enter this country is at a designated port of entry at an appropriate time.  When an alien enters or attempts to enter the country anywhere else, that alien has committed at least the crime of improper entry and is subject to a fine or imprisonment under section 1325(a) of title 8, United States Code.  This Administration will initiate proceedings to enforce this and other criminal provisions of the INA until and unless Congress directs otherwise.  It is also the policy of this Administration to maintain family unity, including by detaining alien families together where appropriate and consistent with law and available resources.  It is unfortunate that Congresss failure to act and court orders have put the Administration in the position of separating alien families to effectively enforce the law.

Sec2.  Definitions.  For purposes of this order, the following definitions apply:

(a)  Alien family means

(i)  any person not a citizen or national of the United States who has not been admitted into, or is not authorized to enter or remain in, the Unit...

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis: BCH/USD Resumes Uptrend "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Key Points

  • Bitcoin cash price found support near the $865 level and bounced back against the US Dollar.
  • Yesterdays highlighted short-term bullish trend line is intact with support at $880 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair (data feed from Kraken).
  • The pair is moving higher and it may soon make an attempt to break the $908 resistance level.

Bitcoin cash price found support above $850 and recovered against the US Dollar. BCH/USD is resuming uptrend and it could break the $900-910 resistance.

Bitcoin Cash Price Trend

After a correction below the $880 level, bitcoin cash price found support against the US Dollar. The price tested the $865 level where buyers appeared and prevented more losses. Moreover, the 61.8% Fib retracement level of the last leg from the $825 low to $925 swing high also acted as a support. A fresh upward wave was initiated and the price bounced back above the $880 resistance level.

During the upside, the price broke the 50% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $926 high to $865 low. The current price action is positive and suggests more gains above the $900 level. An initial hurdle for buyers is around the $908-910 zone. Moreover, the 76.4% Fib retracement level of the last decline from the $926 high to $865 low at $911 may also stop upsides. Should there be an upside break above $911, the price could kick start more gains above the $920 level. On the downside, yesterdays highlighted short-term bullish trend line is intact with support at $880 on the hourly chart of the BCH/USD pair.

Bitcoin Cash Price Analysis BCH USD

Looking at the chart, the price is well supported above the $880 level, the trend line, and the 100 hourly simple moving average.

Trump Administrations Policy Allowing Taking Children from Parents Hits Nerve in Indian Country "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Mount Pleasant Indian Industrial Boarding School where some 227 American Indian died from diseases and arguably loneliness.

Published June 21, 2018

WASHINGTON  Prior to the president signing an executive order to end the taking of innocent children from their parents at the southern border of the United States hit a nerve among American Indian leaders.

A common theme among American Indians is the reference to Indian boarding schools where American Indian children were taken from their familial homes on the the pretense to take the Indian out of the person. The common phrase then was: Kill the Indian, save the man. It was an attempt to strip American Indians of their culture and traditional ceremonial practices. It is obvious the separating children from parents during the Indian boarding school era and now parellels are too great to ignore.

What American Indian leaders are saying abotu

Jefferson Keel, president of the National Congress of American Indians

Chickasaw Lt. Governor and President of the National Congress of American Indians Jefferson Keel:

The forced separation of immigrant children from their families is simply immoral and harkens back to a dark period for many Native American families. For decades, the U.S. government stole Native children from their parents and forced them into boarding schools hundreds and sometimes thousands of miles away. Our communities know too well the intergenerational psychological trauma that will flow from the actions that the United States is taking today. Congress and the President should take heed of such abhorrent mistakes from the past and actually live the moral values this country proclaims to embody by immediately ending this policy and reuniting the affected children with their

High School Students Discover Career Choices through Summer Enrichment Program at NTU "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Students huddle around instructor Laurencita Billiman in a Professional Cooking Basics course at NTUs main campus in Crownpoint. Students from Fort Wingate are able to earn up to three credit hours as part of NTUs Summer Enrichment Career Program.

Published June 21, 2018

CROWNPOINT, N.M. In an attempt to increase the number of Native American high students pursuing careers in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics, and the Transportation industry, Navajo Technical University has teamed up with Many Farms High School and Fort Wingate High School in offering the inaugural Summer Career Enrichment Program (SCEP). The four-week program started on May 29, 2018 and allows students to earn up to six credit hours of intense coursework in Many Farms, AZ or three credit hours at NTUs main campus in Crownpoint.

The courses available are slightly different at each location, essentially customized to meet the needs for students at each high school, said Dr. Peter Romine, engineering instructor at NTU and Co-founder of SCEP. In the spring 2018 semester, the dual credit students at Many Farms High school were learning construction technology as well as developing a solar system that included welding. These were considered as we created the program.

At Many Farms High School, 15 students attend class daily selecting two courses in Engineering Graphics, Welding Principles, or Programming. The two courses translate to six credit hours, which are accelerated compared to the traditional delivery of credits over the span of an entire semester. The program for the 35 students at Wingate high school differs slightly from Many Farms in that students attend class at NTUs main campus in Crownpoint, and are limited to one course in Navajo Government, Professional Baking Basics, Professional Cooking Basics, or Craft Skills.

Students and staff pose with Mythbusters television star Adam Savage at the Nation of Makers conference held in Santa Fe, NM on June 8-11, 2018. Many Farms high school students brought their welding creation for display at the conference.

Published June 21, 2018

WASHINGTON  The National Endowment for the Arts announced American Indian black ash basket maker Kelly Church is a one of 2018s recipients of the NEA National Heritage Fellowships. Awarded annually, the NEA National Heritage Fellowships by the National Endowment for the Arts, highlight the breadth and excellence of the artistic traditions found in communities all across the United States.

Kelly Church

Church is Ottawa/Pottawatomi, descended from the Gun Lake and Grand Traverse Bands. She has an experienced masters eye for selecting the best black ash tree to provide the best material for her to create a vast array of baskets, from designed black ash baskets to Summer Strawberry Blossoms. The traditional Anishinabe process of creating a black ash basket from start to finish is an awe-inspiring and learning experience that goes beyond the artistic practice to include discussions in biochemistry, forest management, invasive pest control, traditional language skills, and deep personal memories of family history.

Churchs artistic, activist, mentorship, and tradition bearer journey to advocate for the survival of Native traditions has involved many national and international art programs, exhibitions, and work with government agencies such as tribal and U.S. Forest services. She has been named the Eiteljorg Artist in Residence, received a Native Arts and Cultures Foundations National Artist Fellowship, and been a four-time Artist Leadership Program participant of the Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian.

Church will receive a $25,000 award and be honored in Washington, DC at an awards ceremony on September 26, 2018 and at a free concert on September 28, 2018. The concert will be streamed live at arts.gov.

War Criminal, Genocidal Mass Murderer, Mad Dog Mattis, the destroyer of Raqqa & Fallujah, frets about losing moral authority

6/20/18
.
Mad Dog Mattis, the destroyer of Raqqa, frets about losing moral authority

Its parallel universe time when US Pentagon chief James Mad Dog Mattis complains that Americas moral authority is being undermined by others specifically Russian leader Vladimir Putin.

This is the ex-Marine general who gained his ruthless reputation from when illegally occupying US troops razed the Iraqi city of Fallujah in the 2004-2005 using shake and bake bombardment of inhabitants with banned white phosphorus incendiaries.

A repeat of those war crimes happened again last year under Mattis watch as Pentagon chief when US warplanes obliterated the Syrian city of Raqqa, killing thousands of civilians. Even the pro-US Human Rights Watch abhorred the repeated use of white phosphorus during that campaign to liberate Raqqa, supposedly from jihadists.

These are but two examples from dense archives of US war crimes committed over several decades, from its illegal intervention in Syria to Libya, from Iraq to Vietnam, back to the Korean War in the early 1950s when American carpet bombing killed millions of innocent civilians.

For Mattis to lament during a speech at a naval college last week that Americas moral authority is being eroded by Putin is a symptom of the delusional official thinking infesting Washington.

According to Mattis, the problem of Americas diminishing global reputation has nothing to do with US misconduct even though the evidence is replete to prove that systematic misconduct. No, the problem, according to him, is that Russias Putin is somehow sneakily undermining Washingtons moral authority.

Mattis told his audience: Putin aims to diminish the appeal of the western democratic model and attempts to undermine Americas moral authority. He added that the Russian leaders actions are designed not to challenge our arms at this point but to undercut and compromise our belief in...

Introducing the Single Element Pattern "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Rules and best practices for creating reliable building blocks with React and other component-based libraries.

Back in 2002when I started building stuff for the webmost developers, including me, structured their layouts using

 tags.

Only in 2005 did I start following web standards.

When a web site or web page is described as complying with web standards, it usually means that the site or page has valid HTML, CSS and JavaScript. The HTML should also meet accessibility and semantic guidelines.

I learned about semantics and accessibility, then started to use proper HTML tags and external CSS. I was proudly adding those W3C Badges to every web site I made.

The HTML code we wrote was pretty much the same as the output code that went to the browser. That means that validating our output using the W3C Validator and other tools was also teaching us how to write better code.

Time has passed. To isolate reusable parts of the front end, I've used PHP, template systems, jQuery, Polymer, Angular, and React. This latter, in particular, I have been using for the past three years.

As time went on, the code we wrote was getting more and more different from the one served to the user. Nowadays, were transpiling our code in many different ways (using Babel and TypeScript, for example). We write ES2015+ and JSX, but the output code will be just HTML and JavaScript.

Currently, even though we can still use W3C tools to validate our web sites, they don't help us much with the code we write. We're still pursuing best practices to make our code more consistent and maintainable. And, if you're reading this article, I guess you're also looking for the same thing.

And I have something for you.

The Single Element Pattern (Singel)

I don't know exactly how many components I've written so far. But, if I put Polymer, Angular and React together, I can safely say that this number is over a thousand.

Besides company projects, I maintain a React boilerplate with more than 40 example components. Also, I'm working with Raphael Thomazella, who also contributed to this idea, on a ......

Dog Who Lost Her Hair In Puppy Mill Still Has The Best Smile "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

When rescue workers with the Atlanta Humane Society arrived at a Georgia home on Wednesday, May 23, they were shocked by what they found.

An anonymous tipster had reported animal hoarding and a possible puppy mill operation at the property in Murray County, but the extent of the neglect was overwhelming.

Nearly 80 dogs, trapped inside a chicken wire fence, lay together on the bare ground or perched atop the few, broken plastic doghouses. Many of the animals were panting under dirty, matted coats, while others had no fur at all.

Credit: Atlanta Humane Society

One tiny hairless Boston terrier stood out from the crowd, cocking her head curiously at her rescuers. Little did she know that this small action would win her the most amazing family a dog could ask for.

We were lucky to take [the terrier], and of course, we saw her immediately, Christina Hill, director of marketing and communications at Atlanta Humane Society, told The Dodo. Shes really precious and shes got a really great head tilt that captured our hearts right away.

Credit: Instagram/call_me_scabigail

The owners surrendered the animals into the rescue workers care, and the dogs were removed from the property. While some were healthy enough to be put up for adoption the very next day, the little terrier, whom shelter workers named Abigail, needed a lot of help.

The young dog had lost all her hair due to demodex mange, a condition where tiny mites burrow into the skin, causing severe irritation. Abigail was constantly scratching herself, creating scabs all over her body.

Sesame Credit is an ambitious technological authoritarian system now used by Communist China (a NWO model) to control its citizens ability to buy, sell & transact based on how obedient & conformist they are.

Sesame Credit is the all-encompassing technological and authoritarian system now used by China to control its citizenry. China has been emerging as a New World Order model for decades.

Although there is a superficial facing off between the US-led West on one side, and China-Russia on the other side, the NWO plan is to use the friction created in these geopolitical battles to merge all the nations of the world under a One World Government.

Many NWO controllers have long displayed open admiration for the Chinese model of authoritarianism, centralized power and the large amount of control it wields over its massive population.

Dog Abandoned On Chain Outside Shelter Had A Big Surprise For Rescuers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

At 5:30 a.m. on Wednesday, May 30, Dr. Michael White, director of the Harris County Animal Shelter in Houston, Texas, flipped on the TV. There, on the local news, was his workplace, with the entrance gate still locked for the night.

The overcrowded shelter had made headlines during Memorial Day weekend when over 200 dogs and cats were surrendered in just three days and that morning the KHOU11 news team found yet another abandoned animal outside the Harris County shelter.

On the screen, White saw a large white dog shackled to the shelter fence with a heavy metal chain she smiled and wagged her tail when she saw people approaching in the dark.

Credit: Twitter/Janelle Bludau

I was watching the local news and I saw Janelle [Bludau], the reporter, outside our facility at the gate out by the road, White told The Dodo. She was talking about this dog she found, who had been chained to our front gate when she came to the shelter that morning.

Bludau said on the news she would stay with the dog until somebody arrived to let them in, so White immediately jumped up, threw on some clothes and began his 45-minute drive to the shelter.

Other than an infestation of fleas and being diagnosed as heartworm positive, the 2-year-old Lab mix, whom shelter workers named Janelle after the reporter who found her, appeared to be in fairly good health.

Ashton Kutcher Rescues 6000 Sex Trafficking Victims and They All Have Something in Common "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Ashton Kutcher has spoken out about his role in freeing 6000 victims from sex trafficking.

For the Hollywood star, it wasnt a role in the typical sense that he was discussing.

What many people dont realize about Ashton Kutcher, is that off-screen, hes a prominent activist and a very successful businessman.

While Mr. Kutcher may often play dizzy characters on TV or in movies, in real life, hes a thriving entrepreneur.

Hes founded investment firms that are accredited with early investing in major tech firms like Uber, Spotify, and Airbnb.

Using his business acumen, connections, and profile, Ashton Kutcher set up an organization called Thorn with his ex-wife Demi Moore in 2008.

The goal of Thorn is something dear to Ashtons heart: To build technology to defend children from sexual abuse.

And, its working.

Ashton Kutcher rescued 6000 victims of sex trafficking

Ashton Kutcher was a guest on The Today Program and was there to talk to hosts Kathie Lee and Hoda about the new season of his Netflix original series, The Cattle ranch.

But, for Mr. Kutcher, he felt it was far more critical to discuss his organizations work instead: To end child pornography and human sex trafficking.

During the interview, Kutcher informs the hosts about Thorns work.

Through his work with Thorn, Kutcher has learned that practically all sex trafficking victims have something in common: theyre targeted online.

Speaking on the show, he explains:

Were building digital tools to fight human trafficking.

Basically, the purchase and commerce for human trafficking is happening online, just like everything else now, and so were building digital tools to fight back against it.

Thorns self-described objective is to drive tech innovation in the fight against trafficking.

Speculation Rife as Bithumb Situation Develops, Market Recovers "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Bithumb situation has quickly developed over the past 24 hours, resulting in rampant speculation about what exactly happened.

Bithumb Suspiciously Deletes Original Tweet

News of yesterdays hack quickly broke on Bithumbs official Twitter account, but oddly enough, Bithumb deleted the original message after only a few hours. The original message stated that all deposits and withdrawals would be locked due to the theft of over $30 million worth of cryptocurrencies from the exchanges wallets.

This seemingly random deletion led to a period of speculation and confusion for cryptocurrency community members. Some began to speculate that the hack was actually an inside job, with a few drawing lines between a $28 million tax raise for Bithumb and the most recent hack.

WhalePanda, popular cryptocurrency personality, fueled the rumors by taking a light-hearted jab at Bithumb on Twitter.

It is likely that the matching figures are just an untimely coincidence, and that Bithumb had only the best intentions while posting the aforementioned tweet. As a matter of fact, Bithumb left up a post on the Bithumb Cafe blog, further showing that the Asian-based exchange only meant well. 

The aforementioned blog post stated:

We sincerely apologize for any inconvenience you may have experienced. However, we will make every effort to reopen the service as soon as possible, with the ultimate goal of protecting your assets.

Jacinta Arden has again broken new ground in New Zealand politics, becoming the first Prime Minister to balance the dual roles of parent and PM since Bill English did it in 2017.

Before English you have to go way back to John Key in 2016 to find a Prime Minister with children.

Many are asking how Arden will manage the rough and tumble of politics while bringing up a child, just as they asked Bill English how he managed his role as an MP while raising six children.

A personal journey through the languages of data science "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

One does not simply walk into TensorFlow.

A PhD is a good opportunity for introspection. In fact, it is important to create opportunities for introspection no matter how busy or insignificant the present feels like.

We should not regard our past as an immature period, but as an unfolding story. A story of discoveries, mistakes, skills, and projects that are now part of our professional consciousness.

No matter how good a tutorial, detailed an article, or well-designed a library, it all comes down to personal assimilation when you learn a new tool. And what is this personal quality that shapes our receptive filters, so that one persons favorite language is another persons nightmare? (My personal nightmare is actually doing my everyday programming in C.)

The past. This is what this article is going to be about. An account of my attempts to use MATLAB, Weka, R, C++, and Python in my data science career.

Data science is a wide field, employing people from a huge variety of backgrounds, like economics, biology, and linguistics. Although data science emerged from a pure statistical background, it soon hijacked the field of computer science and is today a tool as versatile and essential as a calculator.

As a result, the palette of programming languages for data science kind of feels like the universe: a lifetime is not enough to explore it, and it is constantly expanding.

We know that there are trade-offs involved with the generality, power, and complexity of a language. Therefore, the popularity of a language should serve only as an indication of current trends, not a factor for determining your own choice. Ultimately, its a matter of application, experience, and taste.

MATLAB

I was introduced into the world of machine learning through an online course taught by Andrew Ng. I recommend it to this day to people looking for a smooth introduction into the admittedly scarily vast world of machine learning.

Although Python and R were much more popular at that time, Andrew chose MATLAB for the courses assignments. Little did this bother me at that time, but it sure feels odd these days. Data science courses focus more on how to use a language (or a library) to do data analysis than how to do data analysis using a language.

In retrospect, I see that Andrew opted for a gen...

Learn how to manipulate the DOM by building a simple JavaScript color game "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

What is the DOM ?

DOM stands for Document Object Model. Its nothing more than the block level diagram of all the HTML elements loaded on the page when a browser loads a web page. It is presented as a tree of objects which are HTML elements. Look at the image below and you may get a better idea.

DOM representation of a simple .html file

A nice clean block diagram of your ugly .html fileisnt that great! But now you are thinking, how does this help me? Whats the use case? Why do I need to know this?

To put it simply, the DOM enables you to bring dynamics to your static website. With the use of the DOM, you can do a bunch of useful things on the webpage like:

  • adding and deleting HTML elements and attributes
  • adding and deleting CSS rules on a user fired event
  • creating new events for synthetic user events

And this is exactly what you will learn throughout the course of this article.

To give you an idea of what we will achieve by the end of this article, check out this link.

Getting started

We will build a simple color guessing game. Every time the game is started, a random RGB color code will be selected. Depending on the mode of the game, we will have three (easy) or six (hard) options or color blocks on the screen to choose from. Every time an incorrect color block is selected, the block will disappear until the user selects the correct color (or its the last option left).

Heres a rough diagram of what we would be building:

This is something I learnt while I was taking a course from Colt Steele, phenomenal trainer when it comes to teaching basic concepts. You all should check out his videos on Udemys YouTube channel.

Mockup diagram

Part 1

Well start by creating a simple web boiler plate, which will be compromised of index.html, app.css, and app.js files. Lets see how these files look when were starting out.

But first, please note: just to keep it simple for anyone who is reading this without any prior development experience, I will keep showing the source code whenever we change something major.

A Brief History of .22 Rimfire Ammunition

The rimfire principle was used to create the first successful self-contained metallic ammunition. Rimfire cases are constructed with the priming compound spun inside the rim of the copper or brass case, which is crushed by the blow of the firing pin to ignite the main powder charge.

The first rimfire cartridges were .22s, but after the type became established many larger caliber rimfire cartridges were developed in the mid to late 19th...

Statement on an execution carried out in Thailand - European External Action Service "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Statement on an execution carried out in Thailand - European External Action Service:



On 18 June 2018, Mr Theerasak Longji was executed by lethal injection in Thailand.


The country would, next year, have marked a decade since the last
execution and therefore joined the list of countries with a de facto
moratorium on the use of the death penalty. This is what the European
Union expected, given its discussions with the Thai authorities. Against
this background, Mr Theerasak's execution represents a clear step
backwards.


The European Union is opposed to the death penalty under all
circumstances and aims at its universal abolition. The death penalty is a
cruel and inhumane punishment, which fails to act as a deterrent and
represents an unacceptable denial of human dignity and integrity.


The European Union calls on the Government of Thailand to refrain
from any future executions, and work towards a moratorium and the
eventual abolishing of the death penalty.

Commercial values are a key driver of Zero Deforestation policies (commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

According to a recent report created for the Prince of Wales Sustainability Institute, there are now more than 470 companies with commitments to ensure their company is not linked to deforestation. These are commonly known as Zero Deforestation Policies (ZDPs). With increased small-scale deforestation in Amazonia, approximately 4,000 hectares recently cleared in Indonesian Papua for palm development, and increasing pressure on forests in Sub-Saharan Africa attributed to palm oil expansion, it is clear these policies are not (yet) having their intended impact. A recent investigation into the role of commercial, company, personal, and environmental values in ZDPs explores a less frequently considered contributing factor to why this is the case: the values of the corporate decision-makers who are responsible for implementing ZDPs. Why look at the role of values in ZDPs? Because there is a mismatch between rate of forest loss and pace of policy, regulation, and technological developments to protect forests, and this discrepancy suggests it is worthwhile to consider more fundamental drivers of change in order to end deforestation. Values, commonly defined as the metrics we use to choose and rationalize actions and to appraise people and events, might be just such a fundamental driver. Often-cited policy tools such as national forest preservation laws and reforestation programs, the UNs REDD+ program, and laws to minimize illegal logging are slow, according to a 2017 study, and non-binding with limited impact, as a 2014 study found. Even when the policy, legislation, or regulation mechanism to stop deforestation is sound, effective

Illegal mining creeps into southern Bahuaja-Sonene National Park "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

ALTO INAMBARI, Peru There are some places that we always remember better than others. That is what David Aranbar says when he thinks about the district of Alto Inambari, seven hours away from the city of Puno in Perus Sandia Province. Aranbar, the director of Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, grew up in that area of the rainforest and still remembers seeing catfish racing downstream in the Inambari River, alongside otters who would run beside the catfish trying to trap them. Many years have passed since the last time Aranbar has seen an otter in the area. The area around the Inambari River, which has long been the otters preferred route to travel, is now filled with heavy machinery and barrels of mercury. It is an area that has been transformed by illegal mining. As the otter population decreases, the number of illegal stands selling fuel continues to climb. The fuel is there to facilitate mining in the area. An inspection by the provincial attorney specializing in environmental matters in Puno in late 2017 identified 36 points of illegal mining in the Inambari River Basin. Of those, 18 were in Alto Inambari. A large number of those illegal mines are located in the buffer zone of Bahuaja-Sonene National Park, just a little over one mile from the protected area. It seems like just a matter of time before illegal mining makes its way into the park itself. The illegal mining that takes place in the southern part of Bahuaja-Sonene National Park

Puan, the worlds oldest Sumatran orangutan, dies at 62 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

JAKARTA Puan, the worlds oldest living Sumatran orangutan, has died at an Australian zoo after a lifetime spent in service to the conservation of the critically endangered species. Officials at Perth Zoo, where Puan had lived for the past 50 years, euthanized her on June 18, citing age-related health complications. She was 62 years old. Her death left an incredible legacy of 11 children and a total of 54 descendants in Australia, Europe, the United States and in the jungles of Sumatra, accounting for nearly a tenth of the global zoo population of Sumatran orangutans (Pongo abelii), according to a statement from Perth Zoo. Due to her genetic legacy, Puan played a vital role in ensuring the survival of the heavily threatened species. Of the nine existing wild populations of Sumatran orangutans, only seven each with an estimated 250 or more individuals have prospects of long-term viability, according to WWF. Only three of those population groups have more than 1,000 orangutans each. Some 29 of Puans descendants are still alive, including daughters Puteri and Pulang; grandchildren Utama, Teliti, Sekara and Lestari; and great-grandson Sungai, all of whom are also at Perth Zoo. At 62, Puan exceeded the usual life expectancy for her species. In the wild, female orangutans would rarely live past the age of 50, assuming they succumb earlier to a number of threats such as poaching. Puan is the total exception to the rule, Holly Thompson, a primate superviser at Perth Zoo, said in a
