Drifters of opportunity: Seabirds track energy in tidal currents "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Data from GPS-tagged seabirds, as they were swept along in the strong currents of the Irish Sea, could help researchers move a step closer to harnessing the energy in those shifting tides. Four years of tracking razorbills (Alca torda) helped Matt Cooper and his colleagues from Bangor University and the Royal Society for the Protection of Birds in the U.K. understand more about the squawking black-and-white birds behavior. They learned, for example, that razorbills sit for long stretches at night on the waters surface, when theyre pretty much tossed around by the energy of the sea. That gave the team an idea, Cooper said. A razorbill in Scotland. Image by theleastweasel via Flickr (CC BY-SA 2.0). We saw this as an opportunity to re-use the data and test if the birds might be drifting with the tidal current, Cooper, an oceanographer and former graduate student at Waless Bangor University, said in a statement. We took data that was discarded from the original study and applied it to test a hypothesis in a different area of research. Typically, researchers use a combination of high-tech buoys and radar systems to better their understanding of moving currents. But these can also be pricey. Seabirds like razorbills, on the other hand, already spend much of their time on the water, and the ones that provided these insights were the subject of the teams behavioral study between 2011 and 2014 off the coast of northern Wales. The biologists had attached GPS tracking tags that noted

PHOTOS: Here are the winners of the 2018 British Ecological Society photo contest "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A king penguin standing out starkly from the crowd took the top prize in the British Ecological Societys Capturing Ecology photo competition this year. Chris Oosthuizen of South Africas University of Pretoria snapped the winning image of a single colorful adult king penguin amidst a crowd of brown-colored chicks on Marion Island, part of the Prince Edward Islands in the Indian Ocean. The photo was taken while Oosthuizen spent a year on the remote, sub-Antarctic island researching seals and killer whales. Some images have the power to say much more than words, and Chriss image, which showcases the remarkable colony life of an iconic bird species, raises awareness of their uncertain future due to climate change, Richard Bardgett, President of the British Ecological Society, said in a statement. Oosthuizen, for his part, also seemed hopeful that the prize-winning photo might help draw attention to the challenges king penguins face due to the impacts of human activities. Although the global population of king penguins is large, populations inhabiting islands around the Antarctic face an uncertain future, he said. Global climate change may shift the oceanic fronts where they feed further away from breeding sites, forcing penguins to travel farther to reach their foraging grounds. Adri Lpez Baucells, a PhD student at Portugals University of Lisbon, was the overall student winner of this years Capturing Ecology contest. Lpez Baucells and his colleague Oriol Massana used a motion sensor and four synchronized flashes to capture a fringe-lipped bat in mid-flight as it preys

For the birds: innovations enable tracking of even small flying animals "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Animal tracking has revolutionized our study of animal movements and behavior. Radio transmitter tags, followed by GPS and other satellite-based tags, placed on animals via a collar, harness, glue, or suction, use radio signals to transmit data from a transmitter in one place to receiving equipment somewhere else. They differ in how the signals are sent or received, the information obtained from the signals, and the energy needed to make the signals. Ultra-high frequency (UHF) and  very-high frequency (VHF) radio tags are cheap, but researchers must physically tune receivers in to the various frequencies and manually determine each locations coordinates. These processes take time and  money, thereby limiting the number of point locations that can be obtained for a given animal. Standard GPS tracking collars like the one on this male jaguar in Brazil, are have been limited to larger, terrestrial species that can easily carry the weight of batteries needed to power the device. Recent developments in programmable tags, solar panels, and communications are enabling smaller tags for smaller animals. Image by Charles J. Sharp via Wikimedia Commons, CC 4.0. Advances in communication systems, specifically transmission to and from satellites, have revolutionized wildlife tracking. GPS and other satellite-based tags have weighed more, costed more, and demanded more power than radio tags. Nevertheless, their automated collection of animals location coordinates has helped researchers more precisely determine home ranges, migration routes, and the relationships of these patterns to landscape features.

Santo Antnio mega-dam on Brazils Madeira River disrupts local lives "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

While the Santo Antnio dam benefits the consortium that built it, as well as mining, energy and agribusiness interests, the infrastructure project has harmed local communities, according to critics. Image by Hely Chateaubriand. Six miles southwest of the Brazilian city of Porto Velho, the Santo Antnio mega-dam constructed in 2012 stands like a wall blocking the flow of the Madeira River in Rondnia state. Eighty miles upstream lies Jirau, a second new hydroelectric plant, completed in 2016. Like many dams in the Brazilian Amazon, these two have drastically impacted the ecology and dynamics of the river on which they are located, along with local lives while dam builders, operators and government are slow to respond with help. We began noticing differences with the water in 2013 when the dam was raised. It suddenly smelled very strange, says Ana Flvia Nascimento, who has lived in the community of Jaci-Paran, located between the two dams, for more than seventeen years. A rise in reservoir water levels at the Santo Antnio dam accomplished to increase energy production have caused groundwater to rise higher too. Now at the same level as city sewers and cemeteries, the local aquifer for the entire area is contaminated, according to critics. In the past, we drank from our wells, Flvia explains. Now everyone has to buy their drinking water, an added cost that can be a hardship for poor families.

COP24: worlds nations gather to grapple with looming climate disaster "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Delegates heading towards the plenary hall of the 24th UN climate talks in Katowice, Poland. Image by Hans Nicholas Jong/Mongabay. Alarming signals arising from the Earth and from scientists have prompted urgent calls for a decisive international response to climate change as leaders from nearly 200 nations gathered in Katowice, Poland yesterday, Sunday, 2 December, for the start of the 24th annual United Nations climate summit. This Conference of the Parties, known as COP24, is the third such meeting since the Obama administration, with China as a vital partner, helped engineer the historic Paris Agreement of December 2015. That accord marked the first time ever in which the worlds 196 nations achieved consensus on the need to reduce their carbon emissions with a goal of keeping global temperature rise under 2 degrees Celsius (3.6 degrees Fahrenheit) by 2100. Unfortunately, since Paris, the physical and political weather has worsened, with global heat, drought and storm surging; and with nations falling drastically short of Paris commitments (just 7 are on target to meet the 2 degree C goal). Since Paris, President Donald Trump has promised to withdraw the U.S. from the accord. And last month, in a sign of more disunity, president-elect Jair Bolsonaro canceled Brazils offer to host COP25; in the past, hes threatened to pull his nation out of Paris. Im very worried, said Michael Jenkins, president and CEO of the NGO ForestTrends. When you have the global [COP] structure coming apart, with no leadership from the U.S.,

Global biodiversity treaty still searches for its moment in the spotlight "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

SHARM EL SHEIKH, Egypt As policymakers, conservation scientists and the global media geared up to attend U.N. climate talks in Poland, discussions on another environment-related global treaty were quietly drawing to a close in Egypt. More than 8,000 delegates from around the world convened in the Red Sea resort of Sharm el Sheikh from Nov. 13-29 to discuss the U.N. Convention on Biological Diversity, a global treaty that entered into force 25 years ago. The timing for the meeting was critical. There are just two years left to reach a set of biodiversity goals committed to in 2010 by the treatys 196 signatories: an agreement distilled into the Aichi Targets, a 20-point program to protect terrestrial and marine life and habitats by expanding protected areas, reshaping public policy, raising awareness, and working to ensure equal access to the social and economic benefits that come from intact ecosystems. The conference launched amid sobering news for the state of the worlds flora and fauna. The WWFs latest Living Planet Report, published in late October, indicates that global vertebrate populations saw an overall decline of 60 percent between 1970 and 2014. The Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Changes Special Report on Global Warming of 1.5C, also released in October, highlighted the dire effects of climate change. A month later, the National Climate Change Assessment issued by scientists in the United States illustrated how such consequences are already playing out in North American ecosystems.

President Bush's Faithful Service Dog Remained By His Side 'Til The Very End "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Former president George H. W. Bush passed away on Friday at age 94, bringing a close to a long life of public service. But though he wore many hats over his decades on the national stage, closer to home hes being remembered for yet another role that of friend to a lovable yellow Lab named Sully.

Following the death of wife Barbara earlier this year, and faced with limited mobility due to declining health, Bush was paired with Sully, a service pup trained by the nonprofit America's VetDogs.

Bush welcomed the pup into his life as a member of the family.

As a skilled companion animal, Sully is capable of performing dozens of helpful day-to-day tasks on command like opening doors, turning on light switches and retrieving out-of-reach objects.

But Sully's most constant contribution to Bush, of course, was love. And he offered it to the end. 

On Sunday, Bush family spokesperson Jim McGrath shared a touching photograph capturing the dog's commitment to the man he knew not as a president, but as a friend.

In it, Sully is seen lying faithfully alongside Bush's flag-draped coffin. The image is captioned, simply and poignantly: "Mission complete."

As Yellow Vest Protests Rip Through France, Paris Museums and Galleries Close "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Disaffected crowds clad in yellow vests and Guy Faux masks have overrun many of Frances streets in a demonstration against Macrons leading environmental policies, which would see a fuel tax increase at a time when the average French citizens take-home pay increasingly falls behind their cost of living. During the last two weeks, though, protests have evolved into a widespread anti-government assault that has defaced several of the countrys prominent landmarks.

Nationwide protests have left cars burned and store windows smashed in some of Pariss wealthiest neighborhoods. Broken glass and gas canisters litter the ground. As of December 2, at least three people have died in the unrest across the country. Over 260 people were wounded nationwide, with at least 133 of them in Paris, according to the prefecture police. About 412 people have been arrested.

Reporters have noted that the Yellow Vests (Gilets Jaunes) are predominantly men in their 30s and 40s. In some areas, the protest movement has united members of the far right and far left for the common cause of opposing Macrons administration. Because of the turmoil, French Interior Minister Christophe Castaner said on Sunday, December 2, that he and the president have not ruled out declaring a state of emergency in the country. (Following the 2015 Paris terrorist attacks, the presidents ability to do so was greatly expanded.)

On Saturday, Macron returned to Paris from the G20 summit in Argentina to inspect the damage wrought upon some of the citys cultural landmarks. The Arc de Triomphe was a target of violence, as was the high-end Champs-Elyses. Protesters graffitied the landmarks exterior and ransacked its interior, destroying a statue of Marianne (a symbol of the French Republic) according to security footage.

Scientists Create Semi-synthetic Life By Adding Genes To Bacteria "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 

DNA is made up of a gene alphabet of 4 letters. These letters combine to encode directions for the proteins (that perform most of the key jobs inside cells) to know what to do. A group of scientists have spent the last couple decades engineering a new DNA that includes 2 more man-made letters. They believe that by expanding the genetic alphabet to 6 letters it could give an organism the ability to produce new proteins never seen before in nature. Within this radical discovery lies the potential for new drugs which could someday be the cure for cancer and much more.

It is known that DNA is the blueprint for all life forms on Earth. It is written in a code consisting of four letters: A, T, C and G, which pair up in the DNA double helix. This code is the instructions manual for life to grow, develop, survive, and reproduce. It does this with proteins. Proteins are limited to only 20 building blocks, known as amino acids.

Proteins have become an important new type of drug, because cells can do the work of making them and because molecular biology techniques can be used to help proteins evolve to have desired properties, study leader Floyd Romesberg, a chemical biologist at The Scripps Research Institute in La Jolla, California, said.

Floyd Romesberg

The ultimate goal is to create designer organisms that can produce artificial proteins, which could be used to produce better drugs. These artificial proteins made from a 6 letter genetic code would, theoretically, produce new amino acids resulting in countless more possibilities. It would mean there would be more than only 20 building blocks.

Romesberg explained in his speech on TED Talks: Such an organism would be the first radically altered form of life ever created. It would be a semisynthetic form of life that...

Whitney Museum Director Pens Letter After Vice Chairs Relationship to Weapons Manufacturer Is Publicized "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

A tear gas canister manufactured by Safariland, discovered by journalist Patrick Timmons (image courtesy of and by Patrick Timmons/@patrickwtimmons)

On November 25, at the USMexico border between Tijuana and San Diego, United States Customs and Border Protection officers released tear gas and smoke grenade on hundreds of Central American asylum seekers hoping to cross the San Ysidro Port of Entry into California. Numerous on-site reporters posted photographs of the chemical weapon canisters branded Safariland, a corporation owned by businessman and weapons industry figure, Warren B. Kanders.

On November 27, Hyperallergic reported that Kanders sits on the board of the Whitney as a vice chairman and is a significant contributor in the recent Whitney Andy Warhol exhibition, From A to B and Back Again. In the following days, over 100 Whitney staffers signed a letter to museum administration requesting the development and distribution of a clear policy around Trustee participation and a public statement from the Whitney in response to the Hyperallergic article.

Today, December 3, Adam Weinberg, the Alice Pratt Brown Director of the Whitney Museum of American Art, released a statement addressed to museum staff and trustees, decrying the insidiousness of nationalism, racism, xenophobia, and homophobia, while asserting the museum cannot right all the ills of an unjust world, nor is that its role.

Legendary Venture Capitalist: Were Close to a Crypto Nuclear Winter "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Its no secret that 2018 has proven to be a rough year for the cryptocurrency markets, which have seen their market capitalization plummet from highs of over $800 million in January of 2018 to recently established yearly lows of under $120 billion.

The poor market performance, which can be attributed to little more than a boom-and-bust market cycle, has left many investors wondering when the markets will recover, and looking towards upcoming platforms and products being offered by major players in the world of finance, including an institutional investment platform from Fidelity, and a Bitcoin product from the ICE-backed company, Bakkt.

Despite there being positive developments occuring, one legendary investor warns that the cryptocurrency markets may be entering into a nuclear winter, while also noting that the technology is exciting and that it does have an exciting future.

The comments were made by Jim Breyer, a billionaire investor who has board seats in notable companies, including Dell, Blackstone, and Walmart, during Fortunes 2018 Global Tech Forum in Guangzhou, China.

During the final keynote session of the event, Breyer, who is vocal about his bullishness on blockchain technology, said that he continues to be very interested in cryptocurrency and DLT-based companies, but further added that we are close to a nuclear winter right now with cryptocurrency.

Bitcoin, the largest cryptocurrency by market cap, is currently nearing its recently established 2018 lows of $3,600 and is currently trading down 80% from its late-2017 highs of nearly $20,000. Bitcoins poor market performance has led the altcoins markets into a downwards spiral that has sent many of their prices into territories not seen since early-to-mid 2017.

Abstract:  OBJECTIVE: The aim of this study was to evaluate the effects of Opuntia humifusa (OH) on cerulein-induced acute pancreatitis (AP).METHODS: Acute pancreatitis was induced via intraperitoneal injection of cholecystokinin analog cerulein (50g/kg). In the OH pretreatment group, OH was administered intraperitoneally (100, 250, or 500 mg/kg) 1 hour before first cerulein injection. In the posttreatment group, OH was administered intraperitoneally (500 mg/kg) 1 hour after the first cerulein injection. Furthermore, we isolated the pancreatic acinar cells using collagenase method, then investigated the acinar cell viability, cytokine productions, and the regulating mechanisms.RESULTS: The both pretreatment and posttreatment of OH treatment attenuated the severity of AP, as shown by the histology of the pancreas and lung, and inhibited neutrophil infiltration; serum amylase and lipase activities; proinflammatory cytokine expression such as interleukin 1, interleukin 6, and tumor necrosis factor; and cell death including apoptosis and necrosis. Furthermore, OH inhibited the activation of c-Jun N-terminal kinases.CONCLUSIONS: These results suggest that OH reduces the severity of AP by inhibiting acinar cell death through c-Jun N-terminal kinases.

Microsoft Vows to Hand Over All Its Technologies to US Military "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"


As big tech in the US faces increased opposition from its own employees over Pentagon contracts, the head of Microsoft Corporation appears to have decided to throw his weight behind the US military and to offer them full support.
Microsoft is going to provide the US military with access to the best technology all the technology we create. Full stop, Brad Smith, the president of the tech giant, said at the Reagan National Defense Forum, held at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, California.

Smith also sought to explain his decision, saying his company actually wants Silicon Valley to know just how ethical and honorable a tradition the military has. He argued that the military should not be left out of global technological progress in the field of artificial intelligence, which is of importance to everybody and not just young people who happen to live on the West Coast.

Bitcoins Network Just Experienced Its Second Largest Downward Adjustment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

bitcoin difficulty adjustment

As the market continues to tumble (and mining profits have dwindled), Bitcoins mining difficulty dropped by its largest percentile in seven years the second largest downward correction in the cryptocurrencys lifetime.

The last time bitcoin experienced an adjustment on par with this recent one was on October 16, 2011, when it dropped 13.1 percent. Just over two weeks later, the network would experience its most significant difficulty decrease, falling by 18 percent on November 1, 2011.

Now, on December 3, 2018, the networks mining difficulty has fallen by 15.1 percent as mining profitability has waned in response to struggling prices.


Since bitcoin plummeted from its months-long support at $6,000, community buzz has centered on anxieties of bitcoins mining profitability. If the price drops too low, the worry goes, then miners will stop mining, the network will struggle and things will only get worse.

Designated for every 2,016 blocks, Bitcoins difficulty adjustment is the networks self-correcting mechanism to ensure that miners can continue to find hashes below a specific target (i.e., that they can continue to produce hashes and find blocks fast enough without expending too much energy). If too many miners shut off their hardware, then the network will lower mining difficulty to compensate for the loss in hash power and decrease competition (in the inverse, if more miners join the network, then the difficulty will rise).

The downward correction in bitcoins mining difficulty is the expected byproduct of a worsening bear ma...

Pagan Community Notes: Statement from Pantheacon, Many Gods West goes on hiatus, and more! "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

SAN JOSE, Calif. Glenn Turner, the coordinator of Pantheacon released a statement last week regarding the removal of two presenters, Max Dashu and Witchdoctor Utu from the schedule. Turners statement included a commitment to providing a safe and inclusive space to all attendees and staff.

The statement also included details regarding future submissions. Presenters and the subject matter presented will be given greater scrutiny, in addition to verifying presenter credentials, and more thoroughly research presenter backgrounds. The political and social impact a presenter may have will also be considered when reviewing submissions.

Turner included a personal apology for anyone who had suffered fear, pain and sense of exclusion in the process, and for the chaos and confusion resulting from the de-platforming. The statement comes after several weeks of controversy and speculation as to why presenters were removed.

TWH The Wild Hunt columnist, Dr. Karl Seigfried, generated controversy within the Heathen community and among Lokeans, by making comparisons between the god Loki and President Trump in an article two weeks ago. Backlash from the original article resulted in threats of violence, including a death threat, directed at Siegfried on Twitter. The death threat tweet and account has since been deleted by Twitter citing a violation of their terms of service.

The original article prompted several rebuttals of Seigfried s original article on other websites and blogs including a criticism of TWH for its publication and a demand for a retraction in an open letter from Lokeans. The Wild Hunt responded with an editorial statement appending on the original article.

Artist Candice Breitz Calls for Refugee Aid Workers Release After 100-Day Imprisonment "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Still from Love Story (2016) featuring Sarah Mardini, 7-channel installation (images courtesy of Candice Breitz and KOW, Berlin)

Sarah Mardini has not left her prison, located outside of Athens, for more than 100 days. In late August, the humanitarian aid worker (who has volunteered her last two years to pulling sinking dinghies filled with refugees from the Aegean Sea) was detained by Greek officials and charged by authorities with assisting illegally refugees to enter Greece, being a member of a criminal organization and espionage alongside Sen Binder and Athanasios (Nassos) Karakitsos.

According to the trios legal team, Greek authorities have failed to produce concrete evidence to support their accusations, which could result in long-term imprisonment and a pre-trial detention period of up to 18 months.

An organization called Free Humanitarians has circulated an online petition which has already received nearly 8,500 signatures calling on the Greek government to release the aid workers. State practices that criminalize EU citizens for their solidarity with migrants and refugees are intolerable, the letter reads, and risk our fundamental European values of justice, solidarity, and human rights.

On November 28, South African artist Candice Breitz issued a call to action on Facebook in support of the detained humanitarians. The celebrated filmmaker has a personal relationship with Mardini, who participated in the artists critically-lauded Love Story (2016), a documentary recording the plights...

How to show your current Firebase project name on the command line prompt to prevent dangerous "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

How to show your current Firebase project name on the command line prompt to prevent dangerous errors

Firebase

When working on a project with multiple stages (development, staging, production), developers use the command firebase use to switch between projects. Its very easy to run a command on the production environment instead of the development. This is very dangerous.

Command to switch between firebase project

Note: You can always find the latest script at my GitHub repository.

Normally, developers only work on the development project. They only switch to production in case of checking or doing a hotfix. There have been a few times when I forgot to switch back to the development project. I accidentally changed the database without thinking that it could impact the actual users.

Digging into the firebase CLI, I found that it uses configstore to manage local configuration. All config is saved in a JSON file and reads easily. I created a small script which is intended to show the firebase project name on shell prompt.

How to set it up

Bash

Add the following script to the end of ~/.bash_profile:

Add script to ~/.bash_profile

Then run source ~/.bash_profile or open a new terminal window:

Firebase project name is displayed as dev-project, stage-project and prod-project

Your Concise Guide to Miami Art Week 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Alicia Smith, Erendira, on view at Pulse Art Fair (image courtesy the artist and Pulse Art Fair)

MIAMI Miami Art Week itself, which takes over the entire city and nearly all its cultural institutions, is longer than Art Basel Miami Beach the main fair at South Beachs Convention Center but the two are synonymous in name and hashtag. There are about a hundred guides to Art Week, its satellite shows and attendant lectures, parties, openings, DIY spaces, pop-ups guides thatll tell you where to go, what to avoid, how to survive.

Like every year, there is plenty more of the same, and then, in some arenas, much less of that. You might laugh or cry; you will absolutely encounter horrific traffic; you will wish youd brought different footwear. The work this year will be inevitably referred to as sobering, which is only true if youve been living under a rock or never expected art to reflect the times, which are a-changin, or maybe not depending on who you ask. (For starters, go to Nautilus South Beach, a SIXTY Hotel and check out Suzy Kellems Dominiks INVISIBLE, a series of soft-sculpture totems without feet: For without feet, one cannot escape, the artist writes, referring to the complexity of being a female-identifying person today the work is pleasant to the eye and a clench on the heart. Its free to look.)

My rules remain unchanged every year: carry bottled water, wear comfortable shoes, cover yourself with sunscreen, bring a raincoat. Dont yell at service workers or venue security guards about anything out of their control, particularly the weather just dont ever yell at service workers. Be extra kind to your Lyft drivers, too.

Not on this list are many excellent shows at many excellent local galleries, and thats okay, because you can source those elsewhere, along with panels, parties, concerts, and momentary reprieves. That said, a few brief honorable mentions: Make sure to check out Women in Art: A Conversation, a talk at The Wings Little Cabana at American Express Platinum House.

PMID:  BMC Complement Altern Med. 2017 Jan 17 ;17(1):49. Epub 2017 Jan 17. PMID: 28095842 Abstract Title:  Cactus (Opuntia humifusa) water extract ameliorates loperamide-induced constipation in rats. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: Korean cactus Cheonnyuncho (Opuntia humifusa) is rich in pectin, phenols, flavonoids, and minerals such as calcium and phosphorus. Some Koreans drink Cheonnyuncho juice prepared by grinding Cheonnyuncho with water. Cheonnyuncho is well known for its functional properties and antioxidant effects, but its effect on constipation has not been sufficiently studied.METHODS: Loperamide (2 mg/kg) was injected subcutaneously to induce constipation in rats. The animals were divided into four groups: a normal group (NOR), constipation control group (CON), and two constipation groups receiving the Cheonnyuncho extract (CE) at two different concentrations in drinking water, 3% (L-CE group) and 6% (H-CE group), for 25 days.RESULTS: The fecal pellet numbers of NOR and L-CE were significantly increased from 35.672.09 (CON) to 50.601.38 and 46.502.91 after loperamide treatment, respectively (p

How to make sense of the many Android layouts "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

person looking at painting by Antenna on Unsplash

Linear, Relative, Constraint, Table, Frame and so on and so forth. Android applications have a whole bunch of layouts to choose from when you want to design your application. The question is, which one is the best?

Before we go into detailing the different layouts, well first go over the view object hierarchy and Androids drawing process.

View and ViewGroup

Think of ViewGroup as the parent class of any view and also, the base class for layouts. It represents an object which is the container for other views. For example, a LinearLayout is a ViewGroup since it can contain views and other layouts as well.

View, on the other hand, is the basic building block of UI elements. Views can be a part of a ViewGroup. For example, a TextView is a View.

A hierarchy of ViewGroup and View

Measure -> Layout -> Draw -> Repeat

Layouts are saved as XML files in Android. But how do they get converted to the objects we see on the screen? Each XML file gets instantiated (read: inflated) and a view hierarchy tree is formed. This means that if you have layout B that is nested inside layout A, they will have a childparent relationship (layout A is the parent of layout B). Once the tree is formed, there are 3 phases that will happen: Measure, Layout and Draw. Each of these phases traverses the tree in a Depth First Search order.

Measure

In the first phase, each parent node figures out certain constraints its children have regarding their size. It passes these limitations downward to its children, where each child will evaluate its own size (how big it wants to be) and take into consideration the limitations it has been given and its childrens limitations.

Layout

Here, each node will decide the final size and position of each of its children on the screen.

Draw

Starting from the root node, which draws itself, it then tells its children to draw themselves. In this fashion, what happens is that a parent will be drawn and its children will be drawn on top of it.

Keeping the process above in mind, you should try to keep the layou...

Paris Tax Revolts: The World Begins To Realize The Truth About Government "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The world appears to be slowly awakening to the disaster that governments have caused and funded by theft over the course of human history. The French revolts, which began over an increase in the petrol tax, left 133 people injured and over 400 arrested after the people rose up finally realizing that all taxation is theft.

As governments across the globe increasingly enslave the tax cattle, more and more are waking up to the violence and horrific atrocities committed in the name of government with funds stolen from innocent people. Paris was only the latest example of people beginning to realize they are enslaved to the political elites and are finally demanding their freedom and refusing to be stolen from any longer.

French President Emmanuel Macron was chairing an urgent security meeting today following the violence by anti-government protesters in the streets of the French capital, according to a report by The Evening Standard. The protest against rising taxes and the high cost of living forced by government regulations turned into a riot in the French capital, as activists wearing yellow jackets torched cars, smashed windows, looted shops, and tagged the Arc de Triomphe with multi-colored graffiti. The violence is certainly unacceptable, however, people seem to be at the begin

PMID:  Pharm Biol. 2017 Dec ;55(1):1032-1040. PMID: 28183235 Abstract Title:  Cactus cladodes (Opuntia humifusa) extract minimizes the effects of UV irradiation on keratinocytes and hairless mice. Abstract:  CONTEXT: Cactus cladodes [Opuntia humifusa (Raf.) Raf. (Cactaceae)] is one of the cactus genera, which has long been used as a folk medicine for skin disorders.OBJECTIVE: This study investigated the skincare potential of cactus cladodes extract (OHE), including its ability to regulate ultraviolet B (UVB)-induced hyaluronic acid (HA) production.MATERIALS AND METHODS: Gene expression levels of hyaluronic acid synthases (HASs) and hyaluronidase (HYAL) were measured in UVB-irradiated HaCaT cells with OHE treatment (10, 25, 50, 100g/mL) by real-time polymerase chain reaction (PCR). The HA content was analyzed in hairless mice (SKH-1, male, 6 weeks old) treated with OHE for 10 weeks by using enzyme-linked immunosorbent assay (ELISA). Haematoxylin and eosin (H&E) and immunohistological staining were performed to examine epidermal thickness and levels of CD44 and hyaluronic acid-binding protein (HABP).RESULTS: HA synthases (HAS,1 HAS2, HAS3) mRNA levels were increased by 1.9-, 2.2- and 1.6-fold, respectively, with OHE treatment (100g/mL), while UVB-induced increase of hyaluronidase mRNA significantly decreased by 35%. HA content in animal was decreased from 42.9 to 27.1ng/mL by OHE treatment. HAS mRNA levels were decreased by 39%, but HYAL mRNA was increased by 50% in OHE group. CD44 and HABP levels, which were greatlyincreased by UVB-irradiation, were reduced by 64 and 60%, respectively. Epidermal thickness, transepidermal water loss (TEWL), and erythema formation was also decreased by 45 (45.7 to 24.2m), 48 (48.8 to 25g/h/m) and 33%, respectively.CONCLUSION: OHE protects skin from UVB-induced skin degeneration in HaCaT cells and hairless mice.

How You Were Enslaved Before You Were Ever Born "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Few people in the US population, or for that matter, in the rest of the world know about the intended hidden conspiracy concerning the Federal Reserve, the IRS, or the bogus system of monetary value that has plagued United States citizens alone for more than a century now. You were unsuspectingly born into enslavement before you ever had a chance to make an informed decision as an adult. Yes, you and millions of other Americans who have toiled away paying exorbitant taxes, being threatened by a rogue agency that is the terrorist arm of the Federal Reserve or the fact that you were being denied your Constitutional rights in the process.

Where the process began

Based upon theoretical earnings calculations that established your worth on the stock market linking your earnings not only to your Social Security Number but to a sequence of numbers upon your birth certificate your relative worth was listed as a taxation asset by the time you were born and your parents registered you as part of the state health department birth records. Demographics were applied to your statistics while your legal status became that of a corporately owned entity no longer falling within the bounds of Constitutional Rights or citizenship as we think of it, as we were led to believe in school, that is if civics are even taught by most public schools anymore. You lost your status as being a man or woman on the land you became part of a legalistic definition as a living asset subject to the elites who are the owners of the Federal Reserve, a separate but connected entity to the Corporate United States of America.

Indentured servitude

You were sold off as an unknowing slave to an unofficially announced system of taxation based upon your projected ability to generate income and then to have that income assessed over a lifetime for taxes that satisfied a debt owed by the Corporation of the United States of America to the faceless entities of the Federal Reserve, a cartel of elite families who centuries ago established a worldwide central bank. That bank owns a parcel of land within Great Britains major business district called Citi under the registered ownership of one of the families who control the Federal Reserve. In the news, the mass media propaganda we call US news agencies you will be lied to and made to believe that the Federal Reserve is a part of the US federal government but it is not. It is a privately owned entity.

Zionism, Judaism and the Jewish State of Israel "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

 

Zionism, Judaism and the Jewish State of Israel: Separateness, ontological uniqueness and Jewish morality are its characteristics

by Lynda Burstein Brayer for The Saker Blog

Western thinking and intellectual endeavor is very much epitomized by formality, rationality and clear boundaries or limits. These qualities no doubt derive from the Aristotelian philosophical and analytical basis of Western Christendom, in which the Excluded Middle of Aristotelian logic reigns supreme when it comes to the formulation of a thesis or argument. Aristotelian logic posits an absolute binary division between opposites. Its basic formula is an either/or contrast. Truth and falsehood are opposites: there is no half-truth or half-falsehood. This binary division permeates all other fields of quantifiable intellectual endeavor and finds expression in such opposites as good/evil, right/wrong, friend/enemy, legal/illegal, etc. There are obvious benefits to such clarity of thought, and no doubt it is this methodology which has contributed to the scientific achievements of the West. While such sharp divisions cannot always be imposed upon contingent reality because it is situational and circumstantial, rather than absolute, when this principle is violated in the law, the outcome is not only, or merely egregious, it defies ordinary human understanding and contributes to an inaccurate, if not corrupt, view of reality.

The Jewish oxymoron as an instrument of overcoming the limits set by Aristotelian logic

One of the binary opposites of Aristotelian classification in modern times is the democracy/dictatorship opposition. Democracy is recognized and understood to be of whole cloth, such that there is no such animal as a somewhat democratic state, or a nearly democratic state. A political system is not democratic if all the citizens of the country cannot participate on an equal basis. Either a political system is, or is not, democratic. Jewish genius however, has overcome this opposition with a number of oxymoronic legal definitions. The Jewish state of Israel characterizes itself as a Jewish and democratic state, although the latest law of the Knesset wishes to raise Jewishness above democracy. However, it must be blindingly obvious to anyone not in thrall to the ruling narratives, that when a minority of a population is regarded as hostile, is unwelcome and therefore is never part of a governing c...

A Movie Tells LAs 237-Year-Old History "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Paul Pescador, The Founding of Los Angeles (2018) (courtesy of the artist)

Since its founding 237 years ago by a group of 44 settlers known as Los Pobladores, El Pueblo de Nuestra Seora la Reina de los ngeles Los Angeles for short has reinvented itself several times over. Originally home to the Chumash and Tongva people, Los Angeles was a territory of New Spain, then Mexico, and since 1848, part of the US. It has grown from a small pueblo to the nations second largest city, transformed by a late 19th-century oil boom, the ascendancy of Hollywood, and subsequent waves of migration alongside political and social upheaval, the fragmentation of the citys physical space, and the constant threat of natural disasters.

Paul Pescador explores various episodes of transformation and disruption throughout LAs history in his latest film The Founding of Los Angeles. Structured around audio interviews with 45 artists, writers, and historians including Simone Forti, Alan Nakagawa, Norman Klein, Lynell George, and Harry Gamboa Jr., these stories range from the displacement of the residents of Chavez Ravine to make way for Dodger Stadium, to the replacement of native plants with citrus groves and fields for cattle grazing, to the Second Great Migration of African Americans to urban centers like Los Angeles after World War II. As with much of his work, Pescador uses everyday materials, found objects, and personal photographs to tell stories, juxtaposing them to present a subjective, collaged vision of history. The film will loop from 1pm to 7pm with start times at 1pm, 3pm, and 5pm.

US Mining CEO: Bitcoin Miners Are Being Flushed Out of the Market "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The CEO of one of the largest cryptocurrency mining firms in North America says miners are being flushed out of the market after Bitcoins latest price drop.

Bitcoin Mining No Longer Profitable, Miners Exiting En Masse

While November has typically been among the most profitable months for Bitcoin investors in the past, this November led to the worst single-month decline since August 2011, dropping 37% in a month. Even with Bitcoin having already fallen over 70% from its all-time high of $20,000, full-blown panic didnt ensue until this break of critical support at $6,000.

With this latest decline, Bitcoins price is now well below the price at which Bitcoin mining provides a profitable return on investment, which currently hovers around $4,500.

Malachi Salcido, CEO of Washington-based cryptocurrency mining firm Salcido Enterprises, said that companies like his own are entering in the phase when theres a flushing out of the market, and that only relatively few operations will come out the other side, reports Bloomberg.

According to Salcido, the 22 megawatts of power his firm currently has deployed makes him among one of the largest miners in North America and the United States. The Washington-based cryptocurrency mining firm is building an additional 20 megawatts of power.

With Bitcoin prices plummeting and reaching levels of unprofitability for most miners, only those such as Salcido Enterprises who have access to low energy costs and have significant scale, can stay in operation.

The Morrison Government has left the AACTA awards empty handed after their attempt to act like a Government was labelled weak and unconvincing by critics.

The AACTA awards are all about acting and the craft and we have seen none of this from the Morrison Government, said an AACTA Spokesperson. I mean look at the Prime Minister, he went to the G20 last week and no one knew who he was.

He couldnt even convince Donald Trump that he was a leader. Have you seen Mr Trumps hair the greatest actor in the world is the hairdresser who convinces him that it looks good.

When asked his thoughts on failing to win an AACTA, Mr Morrison said: Who needs acting awards when I can make my own trophies. Did you see the one I made myself for stopping the boats?

I also have one that the kids made me saying Worlds Best Dad and one that Tony Abbott made me to commemorate the time that I  Slayed the Malcolm. So all you AACTA types take your awards and stick em.

How to use the browser console to scrape and save data in a file with JavaScript "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Photo by Lee from Unsplash

A while back I had to crawl a site for links, and further use those page links to crawl data using selenium or puppeteer. Setup for the content on the site was bit uncanny so I couldnt start directly with selenium and node. Also, unfortunately, data was huge on the site. I had to quickly come up with an approach to first crawl all the links and pass those for details crawling of each page.

Thats where I learned this cool stuff with the browser Console API. You can use this on any website without much setup, as its just JavaScript.

Lets jump into the technical details.

High Level Overview

For crawling all the links on a page, I wrote a small piece of JS in the console. This JavaScript crawls all the links (takes 12 hours, as it does pagination also) and dumps a json file with all the crawled data. The thing to keep in mind is that you need to make sure the website works similarly to a single page application. Otherwise, it does not reload the page if you want to crawl more than one page. If it does not, your console code will be gone.

Medium does not refresh the page for some scenarios. For now, lets crawl a story and save the scraped data in a file from the console automatically after scrapping.

But before we do that heres a quick demo of the final execution.

Demo

1. Get the console object instance from the browser

// Console API to clear console before logging new data 
console.API;
if (typeof console._commandLineAPI !== 'undefined') {
console.API = console._commandLineAPI; //chrome
} else if (typeof console._inspectorCommandLineAPI !== 'undefined'){
console.API = console._inspectorCommandLineAPI; //Safari
} else if (typeof console.clear !== 'undefined') {
console.API = console;
}

The code is simply trying to get the console object instance based on the users current browser. You can ignore and directly assign the instance to your browser.

Example, if you using Chrome, the below code should be sufficient.

if (typeof console._commandLineAPI !== 'undefined') {
console.API = console._commandLineAPI; //chrome
}

2. Defining the Junior helper function

Ill assume that you have opened a Medium story as of now in your...

PMID:  Molecules. 2017 Apr 20 ;22(4). Epub 2017 Apr 20. PMID: 28425969 Abstract Title:  The Pharmacological Effects of Lutein and Zeaxanthin on Visual Disorders and Cognition Diseases. Abstract:  Lutein (L) and zeaxanthin (Z) are dietary carotenoids derived from dark green leafy vegetables, orange and yellow fruits that form the macular pigment of the human eyes. It was hypothesized that they protect against visual disorders and cognition diseases, such as age-related macular degeneration (AMD), age-related cataract (ARC), cognition diseases, ischemic/hypoxia induced retinopathy, light damage of the retina, retinitis pigmentosa, retinal detachment, uveitis and diabetic retinopathy. The mechanism by which they are involved in the prevention of eye diseases may be due their physical blue light filtration properties and local antioxidant activity. In addition to their protective roles against light-induced oxidative damage, there are increasing evidences that L and Z may also improve normal ocular function by enhancing contrast sensitivity and by reducing glare disability. Surveys about L and Z supplementation have indicated that moderate intakes of L and Z are associated with decreased AMD risk and less visual impairment. Furthermore, this review discusses the appropriate consumption quantities, the consumption safety of L, side effects and future research directions.

This Year's G20 Put an Emphasis on Cryptocurrency Regulation "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Argentina G20

Global leaders walked away from the latest G20 Summit with a rough game plan for crypto regulation.

This years G20 Summit took place in Buenos Aires, Argentina, from November 30 to December 1. International government officials, as well as some of the worlds largest corporations including Bank of America, Inter-American Development Bank, the World Trade Organization and the World Health Organization, gathered to discuss topics ranging from infrastructural development to sustainable food sourcing.

Among the topics examined at the summit included the creation of an open and resilient financial system that followed international laws and supported sustainable economic growth for all participants, at which point the subject of cryptocurrencies was brought up.

Eager to battle both money laundering and fraud in the financial market, leaders explained that they are looking to imprint stronger regulatory tactics on both cryptocurrency and blockchain businesses.

We will regulate crypto-assets for anti-money laundering and countering the financing of terrorism in line with FATF [Financial Action Task Force] standards and we will consider other responses as needed, a summary of the summit reads.

Members also explained that they would explore the extradition of individuals responsible for stealing assets to regions where the offenses took place. Leaders of the summit say theyre now tasking relevant international organizations with reporting back to them on this and similar issues through the next meeting.

Its unclear whether or not the summits member countries will actually adopt this measure. Crypto theft was not specifically discussed, and its unclear if participants were referring to virtual currencies or simply fiat when examining the subject of asset theft.

In addition, summit members acknowledged that the global financial infrastructure is becoming more digitized and have sought to take stronger measures for sustaining finance and strengthening financial inclusion of otherwise non-participating regions. They are endorsing the G20 Financial Inclusion Policy guide, which seeks to provide voluntary policy recommendations to countries and organizations looking to facilitate digital financial services.

The summit also focused on tax efforts, mentioning that it is working on a globally fair, sustainable and modern international tax system based on tax treat...

U.S. chicken farms are so dirty, meat has to be washed with chlorine before being sold for human consumption "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

By: 

Now that the United Kingdom has Brexited from the European Union, Brits are no longer protected by strict E.U. food laws that prevent the import of dangerous foods like chicken meat from the United States, which is reportedly now so filthy that it has to be doused with bleach before being considered safe for consumption.

Chlorine water is routinely sprayed all over U.S. chicken meat, believe it or not, as a way to destroy pathogens and other harmful compounds that are rampant in Americas disgusting factory farms. Most of Europe has much higher standards than the U.S. when it comes to rearing animals for meat production, hence why American meat typically isnt welcomed there.

But now that the U.K. is independent from the E.U. governance, its apparently open game for American imports including potentially disease-ridden chicken meat that, in addition to possibly containing harmful bacteria, is loaded with bleach chemicals that are harmful to human health.

Not surprisingly, there has been tremendous pushback by European activists who dont want chlorine-washed U.S. chicken consumed in their countries, reports NaturalHealth365.com. However, awareness about the horrors of factory farming is spreading across the U.S. as well.

U.S. chickens are an abomination of nature

While chickens were created to roam the open pastures, foraging for worms, bugs, and other tasty treats, the way theyre typically raised in America eliminates all of these necessities. Most factory farms that house chickens in the U.S. are grossly overpopulated, with chickens crammed into cages and never allowed to see natural sunlight.

The U.N. is pressing the United States to join in completely with their program. But, in order to do that, America must give up sovereignty. Are we prepared to do that? Ask the Patriots of this country, you will get a very loud, unequivocal "NO!".

And, the Liberal Communist Left knew they would fight that. Hillary Clinton, moons ago, signed us over to the U.N., knowing it wasn't the will of the People. She knew it would take brute force to make this country to submit, she smugly declared that they "Can't deal with them civilly".

Her answer to that problem would be a paid army, Soros funded, of course. They were offered jobs, homes, health care, it's well documented. From the Honduras, Guatemala, the word was spread, come all. Gangs embedded.

The enemy is at our door. He isn't knocking, he is invading, with an army.

Giving up sovereignty means giving up our arms, the remedy for tyranny that the Founding Fathers knew would come.

Wiki defines the United Nations:
The United Nations (UN) is an intergovernmental organization tasked to maintain international peace and security, develop friendly relations among nations, achieve international co-operation and be a centre for harmonizing the actions of nations.[3] A replacement for the ineffective League of Nations, the organization was established on 24 October 1945 after World War II with the aim of preventing another such conflict. At its founding, the UN had 51 member states; there are now 193. The headquarters of the UN is in Manhattan, New York City, and is subject to extraterritoriality. Further main offices are situated in Geneva, Nairobi, and Vienna. The organization is financed by assessed and voluntary contributions from its member states. Its objectives include maintaining international peace and security, protecting human rights, delivering humanitarian aid, promoting sustainable development and upholding international law. The UN is the largest, most familiar, most internationally represented and most powerful intergovernmental organization in the world.[4]

PMID:  Int J Mol Sci. 2018 Aug 24 ;19(9). Epub 2018 Aug 24. PMID: 30149526 Abstract Title:  Inhibitory Effect ofFruit Water Extract on Solar Ultraviolet-Induced MMP-1 Expression. Abstract:  is a type of cactus whose fruits have been used in folk medicine for the treatment of several diseases. In the present study, we aimed to determine whetherfruit water extract (OHE) has inhibitory effects against solar ultraviolet (sUV)-induced matrix metalloproteinase-1 (MMP-1) expression. In ex vivo human skin, we found that OHE suppressed sUV radiation-induced MMP-1 expression. The inhibitory effect of OHE was confirmed in human dermal fibroblasts. OHE treatment reduced sUV-induced MMP-1 expression by suppressing reactive oxygen species (ROS) generation and phosphorylation of c-Jun, a component of transcription factor activator protein 1 (AP-1). On the other hand, OHE recovered the tissue inhibitor of matrix metalloproteinase 1 (TIMP-1) and type 1 collagen production attenuated by sUV. As upstream signaling pathways for AP-1, MKK4-JNK, MEK-ERK, and MKK3/6-p38 phosphorylation were downregulated by OHE treatment. In addition, OHE exhibited DPPH radical scavenging activity. These findings demonstrate that OHE has a preventive effect against sUV-induced skin damage via suppression of pathways triggered by ROS.

Singapore proposes total ivory ban, calls for public feedback "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

The Singapore government has proposed a complete ban on the domestic trade of elephant ivory in the country. The Agri-Food and Veterinary Authority (AVA), the agency responsible for safeguarding animal and plant health in Singapore, announced Nov. 28 that the proposed ban, under the Endangered Species (Import and Export) Act, would completely prohibit local businesses and individuals from selling or buying all forms of elephant ivory products in Singapore. Display of elephant ivory in public would also be banned, except when used for educational purposes, such as in museums or zoos. The proposal does not list any other exceptions. AVA has opened its proposal to public comments until Dec. 27 this year. International trade in elephant ivory is banned Asian elephants were placed on Appendix I of the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora (CITES) in 1975, while African elephants were added to the list in 1989, prohibiting all global trade in the species and their products. But the ban does not extend to domestic trade. Singapore, while a party to CITES, allows domestic sale and purchase of ivory thats been proved to have been imported or acquired prior to the elephant species being placed in Appendix I of CITES. The proposed ban aims to put a complete stop to this local trade. The proposal also plans to give stakeholders a three-year grace period during which they can decide what they want to do with their existing stocks of elephant ivory products. Local businesses and

These Clever Illustrations About Modern Society Will Make You Rethink Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Conceptual Illustrations by Elia Colombo

Unachievable Satisfaction

Italian designer, illustrator, and self-named creative mind Elia Colombo (aka Gebe) believes that lifes too short to get a real job. This free-spirited motto led him to where he is today, allowing him to express his thoughts and creativity on a daily basis. He combines his skills in graphic design with his interest in philosophy to create thought-provoking conceptual illustrations. Each colorful, vector artwork illustrates the perils of modern society, and points out relatable feelings and experiences along with a good dose of humor and irony.

Colombos themes include societal pressure, mental health issues, and the negative effects of social media addiction. One image, titled Breaking the Rule, illustrates the stages of life as a conveyer belt. Human-like characters are seen passing through each momentfrom school, to work, to family, and eventually death. However, one rebel tries to escape, causing a system error. Other images illustrate the loneliness that some might experience while immersed in the world of social media, from forever chasing likes to the constant upkeep of online personas.

Although Colombos portfolio illustrates many negative traits of todays society, he hopes his work will inspire people to step outside of the box. He says, Dont try to be good, just try to be different!

Mike Novogratz Expects Crypto Market Turnaround, Adoption in 2019 "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Frankly, it would be fair to say that bears have brutalized the crypto market and its constituents in 2018, throwing Bitcoin and its altcoin brethren off metaphorical cliffs.

However, in spite of the widespread carnage, some innovators remain tunnel-visioned, focused on bolstering the nascent crypto and blockchain ecosystem with no holds barred.

Regulatory Fears Remain, but Galaxy Digital Bets on Big Adaptation

Speaking on a conference call Friday, presumably to address his firms dismal financial report, Mike Novogratz, Galaxy Digital CEO, did his utmost best to maintain an upbeat tone.

As noted by Bloomberg, who received a transcript of the call, Novogratz, a former traditionalist banker-turned-Bitcoin fanatic, couldnt avoid talk of the bear market, explaining that this year has been horrible for tokens. The cryptocurrency advocate added that theres plenty of reasons to be depressed, failing to adequately sugar coat the downturn in cryptocurrency values and the retail interest dry spell.

Touching on the proposed catalysts behind the sell-off, which left Galaxy Digital high and dry with $76 million in Q3 losses, Novogratz pointed to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commissions (SECs) renewed crackdown on inital coin offerings (ICOs) and fraudulent crypto-centric startups.

While also discussing his firms financial condition, he elaborated:

And not just was [the SEC] tough on them [but] they mentioned personal investors can go for reparations in most cases. And people got very nervous We [at Galaxy Digital,] found that getting the right regulatory structure was just harder than we thought it would be.

Vladimir Putin Is Preparing For WW3: Will FORCE The West And Ukraine To Make Tough Choices "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Russias president Vladimir Putin is actively preparing for a third world war. In his preparations are plans to make the West and Ukraine make choices that will be difficult, as he shows just how expensive it will be to wage a war against Russia.

According to the Kyiv Post, Avraam Shmulyevich, an Israeli political analyst says, Putins war preparations are well in advance of forcing Ukraine and the West must decide whether Kiev is an ally of the West or part of the Putin system. The Kremlin leaders actions are designed to show the West just how expensive it will be for it to support Ukraine against the Russian leader.

Scmulyevich makes the comments about Putins world war III preparations during an interview with Taavi Minnik, a journalist for Tallinns Postimees newspaper. While commenting, Scmulyevich makes it perfectly clear that he believes Putin is not planning for the small victorious war many talk about but rather about something even more violent and global. There is no opposition in Russia; all opposition figures (except perhaps Navalny) are either in the West or more likely under the control of the FSB. The West isnt supporting any real opposition or spending money to oppose Russian propaganda.

Putin has a very powerful repressive apparatus. In fact, nothing threatens him, Scmulyevich said. The Wests problem is that it doesnt listen to Putin who with remarkable candor says what he wants. He said it already in Munich: he is seeking to reestablish the Russian Empire. Putin wants the greatness of Russia as he imagines it at the end of the 19th and beginning of the 20 centuries.

Putin wants to return what was lost with the disintegration of the Soviet Union. He has pursued that goal through his entire period in office, building up a repressive apparatus and a military and putting the economy on military rails. Given Putins goal to take over Ukraine, Scmulyevich says the Russian president will need a third world war. Putin doesnt need a small victorious war but a big war which will...

Maine Seeks to Go from Vacationland to Vaccinationland: Take a Poll Now to Support Vaccine Exemptions "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

VacationlandClick over to the Bangor (Maine) Daily News to read this article and take the POLL asking whether you believe parents should have the right to Philosophical vaccination exemptions.  This is not the New England I was born in decades ago - we believe in freedom, even if it means a fight. Ginger Taylor is working hard in Maine to head off this Californication....

###

Some Mainers are gearing up for a fight over the future of the states philosophical exemption for childhood vaccinations, a battle that is expected to play out during the upcoming legislative session.

Thats because many Maine families are choosing against vaccinating their children, and some lawmakers would like to change that. Nationally, nearly 2 percent of parents chose not to immunize their kindergartners for non-medical reasons last year. In Maine, 5 percent of parents of public and private school children decided against immunization, according to the Maine Center for Disease Control and Prevention.

Rep. Ralph Tucker (D-Brunswick) is among the Maine lawmakers, public health advocates, medical professionals and others who want that number to start trending downward. Hes planning to introduce a bill in the next legislative session that would eliminate the non-medical exemption for vaccines, including exemptions for both religious and philosophical reasons, thereby improving the states vaccination rate.

PMID:  Phytomedicine. 2018 Nov 15 ;50:19-24. Epub 2018 Sep 18. PMID: 30466978 Abstract Title:  Indicaxanthin from Opuntia Ficus Indica (L. Mill) impairs melanoma cell proliferation, invasiveness, and tumor progression. Abstract:  BACKGROUND: A strong, reciprocal crosstalk between inflammation and melanoma has rigorously been demonstrated in recent years, showing how crucial is a pro-inflammatory microenvironment to drive therapy resistance and metastasis.PURPOSE: We investigated on the effects of Indicaxanthin, a novel, anti-inflammatory and bioavailable phytochemical from Opuntia Ficus Indica fruits, against human melanoma both in vitro and in vivo.STUDY DESIGN AND METHODS: The effects of indicaxanthin were evaluated against the proliferation of A375 human melanoma cell line and in a mice model of cutaneous melanoma. Cell proliferation was assessed by MTT assay, apoptosis by Annexin V-Fluorescein Isothiocyanate/Propidium Iodide staining, protein expression by western blotting, melanoma lesions were subcutaneously injected in mice with B16/F10 cells, chemokine release was quantified by ELISA.RESULTS: Data herein presented demonstrate that indicaxanthin effectively inhibits the proliferation of the highly metastatic and invasive A375 cells as shown by growth inhibition, apoptosis induction and cell invasiveness reduction. More interestingly, in vitro data were paralleled by those in vivo showing that indicaxanthin significantly reduced tumor development when orally administered to mice. The results of our study also clarify the molecular mechanisms underlying the antiproliferative effect of indicaxanthin, individuating the inhibition of NF-B pathway as predominant.CONCLUSION: In conclusion, we demonstrated that indicaxanthin represents a novel phytochemical able to significantly inhibit human melanoma cell proliferation in vitro and to impair tumor progression in vivo. When considering the resistance of melanoma to the...

Opinion: Just Because Im Not Going to Your Show Doesnt Mean I Dont Want an Invite "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

I woke up today and saw pictures from last night of your shitty band playing at a shitty venue in front of a small, shitty crowd. It looked like the absolute worst possible place to be and I feel deeply sympathetic for any of the poor souls who had the misfortune of attending. All of that was crystal clear from the photos alone. However, I am left with just one question: Where the fuck was my invite?

How hard is it to send a text or even just click invite all on your annoying Facebook event page?? You used to invite me to all your dumb shit! Your shitty band, your shitty comedy, your shitty wedding, your shitty kids shitty funeral- everything! What happened? I thought we were friends.

Is it due to technology? Is social media destroying our ability to make face to face connections? Im not asking for much. Just a little something that shows you care about me and want me to attend your special event. Ill even respond back with a resounding, no you dumb fuck Id rather die than see your improv troupe or whatever shitty thing youre practically begging me to come to.

Did I do something wrong? Did I post something too political and you unfollowed me? Did I make a joke at your expense last week at the bar? Whatever it was, Im really sorry and Ill do anything to repair our friendship, which I clearly value. Ill do anything- just please invite me to your next abortion of an event. Even if its an actual abortion!

I expect to receive an invite the next time your band plays. And in return you can expect me to see the notification, roll my eyes and laugh at the thought of lowering myself to attend, and ignore it forever. Sound good?

Hey, at least Im not the asshole commenting sorry cant make it, have fun! on your event. But I will be if I dont get my goddamn invite!!

How Many Animals Were Harmed in the Making of This Camera Film? "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

While scanning through my Facebook feed, I saw that my friend Ruby had shared some pictures of a party, all taken on Kodak Ultramax. One of her friends, however, pointed out something that I had never thought of

Ruby is a vegan, and film is not a vegan product. Film is made of gelatin, which, as you may know, is a product of animal bones.

Ruby admitted being ignorant of this sin and confessed on the spot. But she replied that while there was no vegan alternative in film at the moment, there was research into finding a vegan replacement. This triggered my cynicism alarm film had been manufactured the same way for almost a century and with film sales at one of the lowest points in history, I didnt see Kodak or Fuji pouring money into expensive R&D to make a few vegans happy.

I Googled film with no gelatin.

The first result was a PETA article (which Im assuming is the post that she found) that states:

Unfortunately, we do not know of any film that is made without gelatin. Over the years, PETA has pressured film manufacturers to find a gelatin substitute, and while Kodak and Fuji have researched non-animal alternatives, they still claim that they cannot replace animal gelatin in film

With a bit more Internet sleuthing, I came across an article by Mirko Bddecker of the German film company ADOX that seems to have been written in response to the PETA one. Its difficult for me to take just one quote from the piece because its so succinct and directly answers every question I had to ask. To paraphrase:

Film is not vegan, it never will be, and alternatives to gelatin have already been investigated in the 50s and 60s and did not work. However, gelatin is probably also the best....

Trading Platform Paxful Completes Construction for Second School in Rwanda "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Paxful Rwanda School

Children in the Rwandan village of Kasebigege are being given a greater chance to pursue a sound education as construction on a new school, developed by bitcoin marketplace Paxful, has been completed.

Located in the Bugesera District, the school is a primary institution designed for children between the ages of 6 and 15. It's Paxful's second Philanthropic endeavor in the village, and construction was finished roughly one year after the company built a nursery education center in December 2017.

In an interview with Bitcoin Magazine, Ray Youssef CEO and co-founder of Paxful says it has always been one of his dreams to build schools for underprivileged children.

You will see more of this, especially schools where theyre most needed like in Africa and in rural villages where people dont have access to education or clean water, he explains. We want to build 100 schools in Africa fully funded by cryptocurrency. This is just the beginning and weve only built two out of the 100.

The school is in the heart of the village where Rwandas infamous genocide began roughly 20 years ago. Youssef says that the area glows with an aura of healing and forgiveness and thus seemed like the natural place to begin rebuilding the country.

We believe that education is key to sustaining a community, but thats not the way you start, he comments. When you go to a place with absolutely no infrastructure, you must start with the very basics. There should be clean and potable drinking water. In both schools, we have installed water filters, so theres clean water plus a nursery school plus a primary school. Weve even installed solar panels. Its everything you need to build up a community. #BuiltWithBitcoin is our way of giving back to the communities that we serve in a way that is sustainable and brings a huge smile to our faces.

Youssef says that it took about three to four months to build the school and get it up and running.

The president and founder of Zam Zam Water, Yusuf Nessary, presented a plan for this second school, and it made sense, he states. Building a primary school next to our nursery gives the children access to continuous education.

Construction on the establishment originally began in July of 2018. The goal was to raise approximately $100,000 worth of crypto funds with Paxful matching every donation....

PMID:  J Med Food. 2018 Oct ;21(10):971-978. Epub 2018 Jul 25. PMID: 30044674 Abstract Title:  Ethanolic Extract of Opuntia ficus-indica var. saboten Ameliorates Cognitive Dysfunction Induced by Cholinergic Blockade in Mice. Abstract:  The stem of Opuntia ficus-indica var. saboten is edible and has been used as a medicinal herb on Jeju Island in Korea. We previously reported that the butanolic extract of O. ficus-indica var. saboten exerts the enhancement of long-term memory in mice. However, the antiamnesic effects of O. ficus-indica var. saboten and its mode of action has not been clearly elucidated. In the present study, we explored the effects of the ethanolic extract of stems of O. ficus-indica var. saboten (EOFS) on cognitive performance in mouse and attempted to delineate its mechanism of action. We used the passive avoidance, Y-maze, and novel object recognition tests to assess its effects on cognitive functions in scopolamine-induced memory-impaired mice. We observed that EOFS (100, 200, and 400mg/kg) ameliorated scopolamine-induced cognitive dysfunction. We also explored its mechanism of action by conducting an acetylcholinesterase (AChE) activity assay using the mouse whole brain and Western blot using the mouse hippocampal tissue. Western blot analysis and the ex vivo study revealedthat EOFS increased the levels of phosphorylated extracellular signal-regulated kinase and cAMP response element-binding protein (CREB) and the levels of brain-derived neurotrophic factor (BDNF) expression in the hippocampus. It also inhibited AChE activity in the brain. Our findings suggest that EOFS would be useful for the treatment of cholinergic blockade-induced cognitive dysfunction.

My Favorite Washable White Bedding!! "IndyWatch Feed Allcommunity"

Guys!! I just updated my bedding and want to tell you alllll about it! Because its the holidays and chances are that you have to pull off some semblance of a bedroom for the visitors in your life. Also you might want to go ahead and add this whole shebang to your Christmas shopping list, because everyone loves gorgeous bedding.

If you remember, we dont actually have a master bedroom in the Merc. Were crashing in Brems room until we get Phase 2 done. While the Merc is FAR from being decorated, the lastest sleeping situation makes me a little itchy. I would love to build a headboard and do it all up right, but I obviously should wait until were actually in our real life room right!? (insert nods of validation here)

So I slowly add things to make it feel like an actual bedroom and not a basement room with a bed that gets all of the crummy leftovers.

I LOVE white bedding. Its like the best form of basic. This is why its such a great gift! Everything looks amazing with it, its the equivalent of a giant fluffy cloud from heaven, and you can always tell if its clean. Do you know where my favorite place to get white bedding is? HOME DEPOT. I know youre shocked. Pick your jaw up off the floor and lets talk about it.

Actually first, lets have a vague flashback from my childhood. Fun fact, I love to read while I eat. Boxes, junk mail, the newspaper, anything. At some point during my childhood, I very distinctly remember my mom receiving The Company Store catalog. I loved looking at all of the bedding and all of the happy sleepers inside. I read that thing cover to cover on every available occasion. Their advertising totally paid off because from the age of 9 I hav had imprinted in my subconscious that The Company Store bedding is the best bedding in all the land. Jim from Marketing is probably retired, but if not, he deserves a raise!

Ok now that Ive established that, lets talk about Home Depot.
