Farmers Market Wayville "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Adelaide families now have the opportunity buy fresh food directly from producers from all over SA at the Adelaide Showground Farmers Market. The 20,000 strong crowd that turned up for the farmers market which formed the centrepiece of the 'Go Organic Festival' in September in 2005 encouraged the Royal Agricultural and Horticultural Society (RAHS) to back the foundation of a permanent farmers market by a not-for-profit community organisation. The market opened on October 1st 2006 with a massive crowd of 10,000 shoppers and runs each Sunday (apart from the weeks of the Royal Show) from 9am-1pm.

In the tradition of farmers markets, it is a food market at which both food producers and consumers can get a fair price for food produced in SA and support regional and sustainable land use. The market guarantees that you buy direct from the producer and is known for its strict adherence to the ethics of farmers markets which now number in their thousands worldwide as families seek to avoid overstored food from major retailers who pass on meagre prices to farmers. In Australia, the farmers market movement is represented by the Australian Farmers Market Association and SA's peak body, the SA Farmers Market Association, will soon be launched.

The Adelaide Showground location is superb, with a major bike trail, the Glenelg tram line, a major rail line, numerous bus routes all converging to make it one of the most accessible sites in Adelaide. Parking is also easy and cheap.

120 producers offer their extraordinarily diverse products (everything from oysters to almonds and bread to boysenberries!). It is accessed from the car parks at the Leader Street (southern) end of the Showgrounds.  

Becoming a member brings with it 10% discount on all purchases as well as a right to vote in the management of the market. Details and memberships are available at www.adelaidefarmersmarket.com.au.

The Food Forest is a foundation stallholder at the market and presents a wide range of foods, always including its signature specialty - organically certified pistachio nuts. We are there on alternate weeks (we run short courses on the other weekends).

The presidents wedding: micro-politics of mass mobilisation in Egypts 2018 election "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The micro-level responses, and the individual and local acts of agency still reaffirm Egypts longstanding tradition of subversive political humour.

Supporters of Egyptian President Abdel Fattah al-Sisi celebrate at Tahrir square after the presidential election results were announced, in Cairo, Egypt on April 2, 2018. Picture by Fayed El-Geziry/NurPhoto/Sipa USA/PA Images. All rights reserved.Egypts recent presidential election saw unprecedented levels of hashd (mass mobilisation) in support of President Abd el Fattah el Sisis re-election. Ethnographic snapshots of micro-level responses, however, show not only the complex rivalries at play beneath the grand narratives of the state but also individual and local acts of agency reaffirming Egypts longstanding tradition of subversive political humour.

For anyone arriving in Cairo airport in the run up to Egypts March 2018 Presidential election, the first overwhelming impression would have been the sheer exhilaration of the huge illuminated billboards that had gone up along the route into the city. Alongside large portraits of the benign, gently smiling candidate they proclaimed messages such as You are the Hope, The Story of Egypt and We began together, and together we march on.

I remarked to my cab driver that the flavour of the electoral campaign of President Abdel Fattah el Sisis nomination for his second term in office was clearly distinctive. He replied with a laugh:

You havent seen anything yet! The entire city is festooned with Sisi billboards and banners. One of my mates tried to keep count of the banners in support of his lone opponent he found a total of just six. And you wont see them anywhere prominent, theyre all tucked away in quiet corners such as by the Pyramids.

Days into my visit, as the final countdown rapidly approached for the three days (26th 28th March) scheduled for polling, I saw banners being hung from wooden poles, or hung from frontages, along the streets all bearing the same scripted messages of support as the larger of...

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

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

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

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 Allworld"

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 Allworld"

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

Hungary Passes Stop Soros Law, 2290 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Ray Mikelonis, an independent representative of plant-based products which have been scientifically proven to naturally increase the number of adult stem cells in your body. CLICK HERE: BillStill.StemCellintern.com Good evening, Im still reporting on: Hungary Passes Stop Soros Law, 2290 Synopsis: Unlike in the U.S. today, where American communists are able to flood the MSM zone with pro-illegal and anti-Trump propaganda, today, the Hungarian Parliament passed a package of bills throwing significantly tighter controls on illegal immigration. Called the Stop-Soros laws, the legislation made it illegal for Soros-funded non-governmental organizations (NGOs) to help illegals enter the country and find loopholes in existing law to remain without proper documentation. Prime Minister Viktor Orban has led eastern European opposition to EU quotas designed to cover for the open immigration mistakes made by Germanys Angela Merkel. Orban has accused Soros of encouraging mass immigration to undermine Europe. The Hungarian people rightfully expect the government to use all means necessary to combat illegal immigration and the activities that aid it, Interior Minister Sandor Pinter wrote in a justification attached to the draft legislation. In addition, today, Parliament also passed a new constitutional amendment making any European Union attempt to force illegal alien resettlement programs on Hungary unconstitutional. This week, President Trump noted that tough stances on immigration were becoming increasingly popular with European voters, recently bringing recent election victories to populists in Italy and Austria, and denying Angela Merkel an outright victory in Germany. Now, with Merkels popularity dropping sharply, Hungarys constitutional amendment blocking any EU-mandate to absorb the illegals flooding Germany may be the final nail in Frau Merkels coffin.

Theresa May Seeking Budget Cuts From Defence Secretary, MoD, British Military? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Shockwaves at MoD as PM challenges defence secretary to justify spending plans

George Parker and David Bond in London 


Theresa May has asked Gavin Williamson, the defence secretary, to justify Britains role as a tier one military power, throwing Ministry of Defence plans to modernise the armed forces into disarray just weeks before a crucial Nato summit.

At a tense meeting this week, the prime minister said Mr Williamson needed to rethink the capabilities needed to be a modern military force and focus more on Britains cyber warfare capability to meet new threats, including Russia.

Senior officials said Mrs Mays intervention created shockwaves at the MoD, with some claiming she appeared to be questioning Britains role as a global military player. People have their head in their hands, said one official.

Downing Street acknowledged that Mr Williamsons plans had been challenged by Mrs May in Tuesdays meeting but dismissed suggestions that she was arguing for a reduction in Britains military status.

It is categorically untrue to suggest that the UKs current position as a leading defence nation is somehow in question, a spokesman said. The prime minister is strongly committed to the United Kingdoms armed forces and to maintaining their strength and their ability to deter and where necessary defeat the threats we face.

MoD officials are urgently working on a paper that will set out what it means to be a top-tier power alongside the US, Russia, China and France.

Although there is no formal definition of what constitutes a tier one power, the MoD has interpreted it as having a full spectrum of military capabilities, including an independent nuclear deterrent and a navy, army and air force capable of being deployed anywhere in the world.

Mr Williamson has fought a high-profile campaign in Whitehall for more cash for the armed forces as the MoD faces a funding shortfall of....

White House will propose merging Education, Labor departments "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Donald Trump wants to merge the federal departments of Labor and Education in what would be the biggest bureaucratic shake-up in recent history, published reports said Wednesday.

Budget director Mick Mulvaney has been working on the proposed consolidation which would need congressional approval for more than a year, sources told Politico.

The combined agency would be called the Department of Education and the Workforce, Education Week reported.

This proposal would face an uphill political battle. Republicans have been seeking to eliminate the Department of Education for years without much success.

The last major cabinet-level agency shuffle happened nearly 40 years ago when the Department of Health, Education and Welfare (HEW) was broken up into the Department of Education and Department of Health and Human Services (HHS).

Hillary Was NEVER Under FBI Investigation?!!, 2289 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Virtual Shield VPN - the easiest way to create a home VPN. Go to: https://www.virtualshield.com/billstill Good evening, Im still reporting on: Hillary Was NEVER Under FBI Investigation?!!, 2289 Synopsis: According to ace investigator, Paul Sperry, the entire Horowitz Report, which appears to be a rather desperate cover-up for the worst of the seditious activity right at the top of the FBI that report is coming apart at the seams. First, here is a selection of Sperrys tweets on Friday: Sperry 1 IG Horowitz testifies material implicating Lynch in possible obstruction of Hillary email case is contained in classified section of his report and that he will work with Congress to declassify it. Here is the possible smoking gun: Sp 2 IG Horowitz confirms his staff did not recover all of Strzok's or Page's text messages from the December 15, 2016 - May 17, 2017 "gap" period when FBI suffered mysterious archiving "glitch" ... As Ive proven in these reports time after time, large organizations, and all agencies of the government, can never lose emails or text messages. They are required by law to preserve them and as a result, there are backups of backups on servers, then there are old-fashioned tape backups that are picked up weekly by the armored vehicles of big preserving firms such as Iron Mountain. Therefore, there was no mysterious glitch. This is an outright lie. Now turning to the last 24 hours: Sperry 3 IG Horowitz revealed in Senate testimony FBI never named a target or even subject in Clinton probe. Not Mills, Abedin, Combetta or Clinton herself. "Nobody was listed as a subject of this investigation at any point in time," adding this was "surprising" for a crim probe Thats correct, there was never an actual investigation of Clintons mishandling of thousands of highly classified emails. Let me say this again; THERE WAS NO INVESTIGATION only a fake announcement or exoneration trying to justify why she got away Scot free.

FBI Tried to Entrap Trump, 2288 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Trade Genius Academy: Learn the safe, sure way to trade. https://www.TradeGeniusAcademy.com Good morning, Im still reporting on: FBI Tried to Entrap Trump, 2288 Synopsis: Another case of nefarious deeds against the Trump campaign by the FBI came to light yesterday. However, this was not a spy. Stunningly, this was an attempted entrapment sprung by a man who it turns out, was an FBI informant. The FBI entrapper was a man by the name of Henry Greenberg who had worked for the FBI for 17 years. In May of 2016, he contacted Trump friend, Roger Stone, and offered to sell him dirt on Hillary Clinton that he claimed was being offered from the Russian government for $5 million. Stone, in a text, quickly dismissed the attempted entrapment by texting Greenberg that Trump never pays for political dirt. Tucker picks up the story from last night interviewing former Asst.

Syria: Massive battle for Southwest could trigger US-Israeli intervention "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The long awaited battle for Daraa has begun despite repeated warnings issued to the Syrian government from the US not to extend its military campaign to the country's south, where the conflict first began with fierce anti-Assad protests in 2011 and then quickly spiraled into violence. Fighting began Tuesday night as the army's elite Tiger forces assaulted an air base in northeast Daraa which had been under jihadist control - namely the US-backed FSA "Southern Front" group and allied Hayat Tahrir Al-Sham (formerly Nusrah, al-Qaeda). After liberating the base government forces are now pounding opposition controlled towns with artillery fire which have for years been a hotbed of the al-Qaeda and ISIS terror insurgency. The army and allied forces, including reportedly including Hezbollah special forces units, have penetrated deep into Al-Quneitra and Daraa governorates where a massive campaign is expected to begin at any moment for the final push to take control of the entire southwest. President Bashar al-Assad has vowed in recent interviews to liberate "every inch" of sovereign Syrian territory.

How primates got fingernails, new research "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This 2016 video says about itself:

Nails evolved from claws roughly 50 million years ago. Why did this happen and what purpose do nails serve?

Oldest evidence of nails in modern primates: From hot pink to traditional French and Lady Gagas sophisticated designs, manicured nails have become the grammar of fashion. Scientists have now recovered and analyzed the oldest fossil evidence of fingernails in modern primates, confirming the idea nails developed with small body size and disproving previous theories nails evolved with an increase in primate body size. Read more here.

Which came first, the nail or the claw? The answer is unclear, but researchers have discovered a clue: an early primate that had a toe bone with features of both a grooming claw and a nail. A fossil of the 47-million-year-old primate, Notharctus tenebrosus, had a lemur-like grooming claw on its second digit, but it was flattened, a bit like a nail, according to a new study in the journal PLoS One. Read more here.

Evidence for a Grooming Claw in a North American Adapiform Primate: Implications for Anthropoid Origins: Among fossil primates, the Eocene adapiforms have been suggested as the closest relatives of living anthropoids (monkeys, apes, and humans). Central to this argument is the form of the second pedal digit. Extant strepsirrhines and tarsiers possess a grooming claw on this digit, while most anthropoids have a nail. While controversial, the possible presence of a nail in certain European adapiforms has been considered evidence for anthropoid affinities. Read more...

People behaving badly is so commonplace today that Jerry Springer quits his show "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Somehow it doesnt seem right for Jerry Springer to exit quietly.

There should be one last thrown chair or a bleep-filled tirade, at the very least. Instead, it was announced with no fanfare this week that he will stop making new episodes of his memorably raucous talk show, and neither Springer nor his bosses will talk about it.

Image result for Jerry Springer show fights, photos

The Jerry Springer Show wont fully disappear; NBC Universal said this week that the CW and other networks that have bought the show in syndication will air reruns of the slugfest. Producers said there is a possibility that more original episodes could be ordered sometime in the future but, since they wouldnt answer questions, its not known how serious that possibility is.

At its heyday in the 1990s, Springers show challenged Oprah Winfrey for daytime television supremacy with TV studios filled with seething spurned lovers, gender fluid guests before that was a term and pretty much anyone who was spoiling for a fight. It even provoked serious end-of-civilization-as-we-know-it talk.

Image result for Jerry Springer show fights, photos

Springer, a former Cincinnati mayor who realized he had to do something to distinguish himself in a competitive market, was the low-key ringmaster who didnt take himself too seriously and let you know he was in on the joke.

During an interview with The Associated Press at his shows 25th anniversary three years ago, Springer said that anyone could do his job if they learned three phrases: You did what? Come on out! and Well be right back. He presided over 4,000 episodes.

Some of his shows last month illustrated that the formula hadnt changed much: Stripper Sex Turned Me Straight, Stop Pimpin My Twin Sister, My Bestie is Stalkin You, Hooking Up With My Therapist and Babes with Baguettes.

The Best New Amiga Title of 2018? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Just because a system becomes obsolete for most of us doesnt mean that everyone stops working with them. Take a look at this brand new game for the Amiga 500 called Worthy, which is sure to make most of us regret ever upgrading our home computers, despite the improvements made since 1987.

The group who developed the game is known as Pixelglass and they have done a lot of work on this platform, releasing several games over the past few years. Their latest is Worthy, an action-adventure game that looks similar to the top-down perspective Zelda games from the SNES. Its an impressive piece of work for a system that few of us own anymore, but if you have one (or even if you have a good emulator) you might want to give it a whirl.

If developing games for retro systems is your style, this isnt limited to personal computers like the Amiga. Weve seen development platforms for the Super Nintendo that will let you run your own code, and even other methods for working with the Sega Saturn if youre feeling really adventurous.

Google Influence Gets Credit for Killing New Yorks Revenge-Porn Bill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New Yorks revenge-porn bill died early Thursday morning after the Senate adjourned for the year and took no action in the wake of an 11th-hour campaign by Google against the legislation.

The proposal which has languished in Albany since its introduction in 2013 and was recently taken up again after a Post expos  would have made nonconsensual dissemination of sexually explicit images a misdemeanor punishable by up to a year in jail.

Google is opposed to any government oversight over how it regulates content.

It would have also helped victims sue Web hosts to remove the offending images.

But Google mounted a late effort against the bill, with the Internet behemoth opposed to any government oversight over how it regulates content.

Attorney Carrie Goldberg, whod been leading lobbying efforts for the bill, was livid that senators went home without even taking a vote, effectively killing the legislation until next year.

The only long-shot chance for the bill is if lawmakers decide to come back for a special session, though theres been no talk of that.

Its deeply disturbing that Google and tech lobbyists were quiet as a church mouse for the five years this bill has been percolating in Albany and then literally the morning its up for vote, they bulldoze in with coercive demands on our lawmakers to change the language, Goldberg said.

Its a disgrace how weak our lawmakers look for bowing down to these tech corporate overlords.

The Internet Association an influential lobbying group working on behalf of Google and a host of other Web sites used to disseminate revenge porn fought the bill, which has passed the Assembly but needed Senate approval.

Gov. Cuomo had pledged to sign the bill, had the proposal made it to his desk.

The legislations sponsor, state Sen. Phil Boyle (R-Bay Shore) said he p...

South China Sea: Latest Books "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

.

Two recent books offer a helpful guide to Southeast Asias most complex maritime dispute.Asian Waters: The Struggle Over the South China Sea & the Strategy of Chinese Expansionby Humphrey HawksleyOverlook Press, 2018, 304 pp., $29.95

Great Powers, Grand Strategies: The New Great Game in the South China Sea

edited by Anders Corr

Naval Institute Press, 2018, 336 pp., $34.95

Asian Waters, the new book by veteran Asia journalist Humphrey Hawksley, recently became my ideal travel companion on a long flight to Australia, en route to the South China Sea. For any other reader hoping to navigate those troubled waters, or seeking a broad overview of the geopolitical fault lines in Asia, Hawksleys book provides an excellent guide.

The books journey can admittedly be a digressive one, at times wading way beyond Asian waters and far onto shore. Hawksleys book touches on North Koreas illicit nuclear program and much else besides. One chapter describes Indias stunted development, recounting in gruesome detail the slavery-like conditions in its brick kilns. Another chapter on Vietnam finds Hawksley meandering into an argument as to why, in the late 1970s, Vietnam was unnecessarily constrained by Cold War logic from taming the bloody Khmer Rouge in neighboring Cambodia. Such stories are certainly intriguing, flowing from Hawksleys decades of first-hand reporting from the region.

Hawksley notes how the announcement of the U.S. pivot to Asia led to a rapid expansion of Chinese activity in the South China Sea, from the deft takeover of Scarborough Shoal close to the Philippines to the rapid move of a Chinese state-controlled oil rig into disputed areas with Vietnam. In t...

Pacific Nations teams push for more home Tests "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Players from Pacific Island nations have called for end of season Test matches to be played in their home countries as part of the code's plans for international expansion ahead of the 2021 Rugby League World Cup.

The success of last year's tournament across Australia, Papua New Guinea and New Zealand has opened the door for international games to be showcased in a similar way to the NRL taking clashes to regional areas in Australia throughout 2018.

The annual mid-season Pacific Tests, which have been played since 2013, have been based in Sydney's west for the last five years an agreement that will continue next season.

But with the mid-year Denver Test match featuring New Zealand and England kicking off on Sunday, the clash could kick off a new era for international scheduling and locations.

All four Pacific nations teams attended a Pacific Test gala day in Campbelltown on Wednesday and backed the possible expansion of the game involving playing hosts.

Tongan forward Jason Taumalolo told NRL.com it was only a matter of time before the powerhouse second-tier nation hosted an international fixture.

The World Cup squad travelled back to Tonga following the tournament and were overwhelmed by the support.

"That's one of many things we're trying to achieve is to get a game over there," Taumalolo said.

"There are a lot of Tongan fans in Australia and New Zealand so playing a game back there would only grow the game.

"There wouldn't be a spare seat in the house if it were to happen."

Samoa is in a similar boat to their Tongan rivals but were able to last hosted a game in Apia during the Four Nations tournament in 2016, which coincided with their 30th rugby league anniversary celebrations.

"It was unreal," Samoan prop Sam Kasiano said, after being part of the side that loss to Fiji 20-18.

"I think I scored a try that game. It was just awesome to be able to play in front of our people who live in our country. I think it's time to do it again, we love it wherever we play but being at home is something special."

The Fijian side hosted Australia in a warm-up last year leading into the World Cup, while Papua New Guinea play host to the Prime Ministers XIII annually and co-hosted last year's tournament in spectacular fashion.

Philippines Seeks Fishing Agreement With China, Vietnam "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Lets share, Philippines tells Vietnam, China
A fisherman repairs his boat in the disputed Scarborough Shoal in the South China Sea in a file photo by Reuters.

U.N. tribunal rules Scarborough Shoal a traditional fishing ground for three countries.

The Philippines wants Vietnam and China to sign a fishing agreement at Scarborough Shoal after a U.N. tribunal ruled the region was a traditional fishing ground for Filipino, Chinese and Vietnamese fishermen.

In July 2016, a U.N. tribunal had not been able to reach a conclusion on the territorial issue, which decides the ownership of the shoal. However, it was able to decide on the maritime issue of fishing.

The Philippiness Acting Chief Justice, Antonio Carpio, told The Philippine Star that China had refused to acknowledge that decision.

In an interview with CNN Philippines, Carpio said: We should maintain our position, because otherwise China will later on say, You have been fishing there and you have accepted that youre fishing there because we have allowed you out of the goodness of our heart.'

The judge also added that if the fishing agreement is signed, it will be regulated to protect the areas marine life.

Philippines could also sign a boundary agreement with Vietnam on the Spratly Islands. Prime Minister Nguyen Xuan Phuc had suggested the idea to Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte.

Duterte could possibly sign that median line boundary agreement between the two countries, Carpio said.

China claims most of the South China Sea, through which about $3-trillion worth of goods passes every year. It has made substantial progress in fortifying its manmade islands in the past few years, which it says it has the right to defend. Vietnam calls the waterway the East Sea and has repeatedly stressed its sovereignty rights over the Paracel and Spraty Islands.

At the end of May 2018, the Philippines expressed serious concern over the presence of Chinas strategic bombers in the disputed waters, but its response to the installation of missile systems was muted.

KARACHI: Moodys Investors Service has downgraded Pakistans rating to negative from stable. A statement released by the credit rating agency in the evening on Wednesday stated that the decision to change the outlook to negative was driven by heightened external vulnerability risk as ongoing balance of payment pressures erode foreign exchange buffers.

The rating agency expects the governments tax amnesty scheme due to expire on June 30 to have a modest impact of around $2-3 billion in foreign exchange inflows.

Moodys said that the foreign exchange reserves have fallen to low levels and in the absence of significant capital inflows would will not be replenished over the next 12-18 months.

Rating of B3 reaffirmed for local and foreign currency debt

Low reserves adequacy threatens continued access to external financing at moderate costs, in turn potentially raising government liquidity risks.

India expected to become a $5 trillion economy in 6 years "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Factors beyond Indias control have been roiling its financial markets in recent months, as a spike in global crude oil price and the resultant rise in inflation and winding up of loose money policies by central banks have hurt market outlook.

But Sunil Singhania, one of Dalal Streets most outstanding money managers, wants to look at the brighter side of things.

The size of Indias economy will double from $2.5 trillion today to $5 trillion by 2025; that is, in six years from now. Thats the opportunity to capture, says he.

We look at India reaching the size of maybe $5 trillion over the next six-seven years and maybe $8 to $9 trillion in next eight-nine years, Singhania said.

The next 10-12 years would be very promising for the Indian economy, which should be growing at a world-beating pace of 7-8 per cent annually, says he.

Singhania, who quit Reliance Mutual Fund, Indias largest fund house by asset size in his times and now third largest, says a wide range of sectors and themes including financial services and consumption will create huge wealth for investors in this transition of the economy.

Known for his bottom-up style of investing, Singhania has since founded his own asset management firm Abakkus Asset Managers LLP.

In the near term, general election 2019 would be a big unknown for the markets. That, along with rising crude oil prices, would continue to roil the equity market through this year and early days of next year, he says.

There has been a huge selloff by foreign portfolio investors in the domestic market over the past few months, amid unwinding of soft interest regime in the US, rising bond yields, fear of trade war and soaring oil prices. FIIs have offloaded Rs 4,095 crore worth of Indian shares so far this calendar.

Domestic mutual funds, on the other hand, have poured over Rs 56,000 crore into domestic equities so far in 2018. This has been helped by a steady flow of household savings into mutual fund schemes. The benchmark BSE Sensex is up over 4 per cent so far this year.

Singhania says he is looking at new trends and smaller companies that can turn out to be alpha generator. He is bullish on the financial services sector and believes the shift from savings from physical assets to financial assets is a very powerful move and that would alter the financial landscape quickly.

Indonesia slams UN Human Rights office over planned Papua visit "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Indonesia has criticised the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, saying that his regional office in Bangkok should first coordinate with the government before sending a mission to Papua, instead of demanding immediate access.

"It is deeply regrettable that the staff members of his regional office in Bangkok, instead of coordinating the planned visit with Indonesian authorities, have unilaterally set the dates and areas to visit in Papua and West Papua, while demanding immediate access, Hasan Kleib, Indonesia's permanent representative to the United Nations in Geneva, said in a statement on Tuesday.

The statement, delivered during a general debate session at the United Nations in Geneva, came in response to a remark by UN human rights chief Zeid Ra'ad al-Hussein, who said the government's invitation to his office to visit Indonesia's easternmost provinces had not yet materialised.

In Indonesia, I am concerned that despite positive engagement by the authorities in many respects, the government's invitation to my office to visit Papua which was made during my visit in February has still not been honoured, Zeid said during the 38th session of the Human Rights Council on Monday.
During his three-day visit to Indonesia in February, Zeid expressed concern over the excessive use of force by Indonesian security forces, harassment, arbitrary arrests and detentions in Papua. He was in the country at the time to meet with government officials, who invited his office to visit the country's poorest region.

According to Hasan, the UN human rights chief informed the Indonesian government that his regional office in Bangkok would represent him on the visit.

In a follow-up, Hasan said staff of the regional office misleadingly acted as if a mutually agreed schedule was already in place for the visit, but that the Indonesian government had yet to grant them access. He added that this conduct was deplorable.

Hasan said Indonesia is still committed to invite Zeid or his office to visit Papua but asserted that the regional office in Bangkok must respect the principles of consent by the host government in the future.

For years, political grievances and an active independence movement in Papua have generated headlines, in spite of the government's focus on economic development to improve the situation.

Midnight Meme Of The Day! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


by Noah

Laura Ingraham, a soulless, corporately supported FOX "News" host famous for her straight-armed salute to the delegate goons at the 2016 Republican Convention (also know as the Kleveland Kook Karnival) and famous for taunting Parkland High School shooting survivors, now has added a new atrocity to her personal greatest hits of sick behavior. On Monday, she referred to Herr Trump's Internment Camps as quote, "summer camps." This is Republicanism, folks. This is Trumpism. "Summer camps." "Summer camps" full of hostages, not campers.

As a young boy, I went to summer camps. My parents sent me, not an evil government led by bigoted, fascist scumbags and promoted by a national TV network and Russian bots.

I was a young boy the same age as many of the stolen children in Trump's Texas "summer camps." I'm not sure what kind of summer camps a lowlife like Ingraham might have gone to but, if she did go to summer camps, I feel bad for the fellow campers that had to put up with such a mental case. I can tell you that, at my summer camps, we were housed in nice, comfortable cabins or tents. We we not housed in cages. We were able to write to our parents and our parents were able to write to us. During the course of the summer, there were even a couple of visitation days. At one camp I went to, we got to leave the camp for few days and hike around the Catskill Mountains. At another, we even got to go on canoe trips down the Delaware River, miles from the camp. We happily returned each time. There were no cages waiting for us.

Qanon IG/Huber Mirror FBI/DoJ "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 
 I am sharing this item put up on the 18th. It maps out the machinery put in place to roll up the profound corruption been discovered daily in the FBI/DOJ. The IG commands 450 investigators and i am sure they are the source of those 5000 sealed indictments per month now adding up to 35,000.
The clean out of the FBI is happening in the public space for us to see. Today we hear Peter Strozk was escorted out of the building.  Our problem there is that we know so much we do not understand what took so long but this is all part of a much bigger operation whose scale is shocking.
 
Central to this is that the FBI and the DOJ must be completely cleansed along with the whole Judiciary before we start arresting all those sealed indictments.  We also had confirmation from Q that Huma and Podesta were both indicted on 3/11 and 6/11 of last year.  These also remain sealed.  There were rumbles at the time that suggested just that.
 
I do not know how much in the form of interviews have been conducted and the general silence and the volume of out put suggest little of that yet.  I suspect that the indictments are coming in from data collected electronically over the past several years even by Military Intel.  They would have opened the files and collected the raw supporting data including financial transfers and the like.
 
Understand we are now seeing the end of all forms of government internal secrecy and this literally ends the possibility of corruption as a significant factor.  Big brother really has no need to know about you and us but it certainly needs to know if its minions are really minions.

I wonder if a strong magnetic field will trigger lost memories as well?  That would save us a lot of aggravation.  We need to recover as many of these memories as possible simply because it is very common place and we need the data to properly understand what is happening around us.

What is also becoming clear recently is that full disclosure is close enough that they do not care to cover their tracks well..

Assad regime responsible for crimes against humanity in Ghouta: UN "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The method of warfare in Syria was barbaric  Assad regime deliberately starved civilians, used chemical weapons in eastern Ghouta, UN says.

Image may contain: one or more people, sky and outdoor

Forces loyal to the Assad regime committed what amounted to crimes against humanity, including deliberately starving civilians, during the siege of eastern Ghouta, U.N. investigators said Wednesday.

The five-year siege, on the outskirts of the Syrian capital, ended in April when the regime regained control of the opposition enclave.

Following the end of the longest running siege in modern history the U.N. Commission of Inquiry (for human rights in Syria) has condemned this method of warfare in Syria as barbaric, the U.N. investigators said in a statement.

The COI, tasked by the U.N. Human Rights Council in March to urgently investigate recent events in eastern Ghouta, released a 23-page report filled with horrific details of civilian suffering.

It is completely abhorrent that besieged civilians were indiscriminately attacked, and systematically denied food and medicine, commission head Paulo Pinheiro said in the statement.

As pro-regime forces dramatically escalated their campaign to recapture the besieged enclave between February and April this year, they used tactics that were largely unlawful in nature, the report said.

The tactics, it said, aimed at punishing the inhabitants of eastern Ghouta and forcing the population, collectively, to surrender or starve.

It described thousands of desperate people holed up for months in squalid basements with dwindling food rations and few if any sanitation facilities, as bombs and missiles rained down.

The investigators said chemical weapons were probably used in eastern Ghouta.

Referring to April 7, when regime air attacks hit the city of Douma, the inquiry said: The available evidence is largely consistent with the use of chlorine.

Some of the reported symptoms point to the additional use of a different gas, most likely a nerve agent, the investigative body said, without specifying the perpetrators.

The investigators have received reports about at least 49 deaths and up to 650 injuries during the air attacks on April 7.

Inspectors for the Organization for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) have also investigated the incident, but they have yet to issue a report.

New Technique Could Speed Up DNA Synthesis "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New technique could help scientists create a gene in just 1 day

Creating a new gene in a single day could soon be possible, thanks to a new technique that mimics the way the body copies its own DNA. Though the technology needs to clear a few more hurdles, it could one day let researchers speedily rewrite microbe genes, enabling them to synthesize new medicines and fuels on the fly.

[...] Church says the new approach is not quite ready to dethrone conventional DNA synthesis. So far, the group has made oligos only 10 bases long. And there are still a few writing problems, as the approach was only 98% accurate at writing DNA in the desired sequence, below the 99% accuracy of the traditional approach. "It's cool for a first demonstration," Palluk says. "But it's not quite there yet."

In order to write oligos up to 1000 bases long, the approach will likely need to be 99.9% accurate. If it gets there, Church says it could help revolutionize not just synthetic biology's efforts to write and test new genes, but also enable efforts to write massive libraries of data in DNA to create a compact archive the firehoses of information coming from giant science projects such as astronomy surveys, which could then be fished out and read out later.

10 Key Differences Between Genuine and Fake People "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Have you ever been around people who talk bad about everyone behind their backs? These people are nice to your face but are about as fake as it gets.

Sometimes we have a hard time figuring out who is real and who is fake. That is not something to be ashamed of considering how full of wolves this world of sheep is. Below you will find ten easy to spot differences when it comes to genuine people and fake people.

1. Hard To Impress Vs. Easy To Please

Genuine people wont usually go out of their way to impress others. They are normally comfortable how they are and are not seeking the approval of others. Fake people, however, are always doing things to make them seem more favorable and are often hard to impress.

2. Look Out For Everyone Vs. Look Down On Everyone

Genuine people look out for others and are always doing what they can to help depending on the situation. Fake people are constantly trying to come off as better than everyone else and look down on almost everyone.

3. Help For Sake of Helping Vs. Helping For Self Gain

Fake people will only help others when they can benefit from it while genuine people will help others simply because it is the right thing to do.

4. Honest Opinion Vs. What You Want To Hear

Genuine people will give you their honest opinion on something even if it is something that is hard to tell you. Fake people will either lie to you to make you feel bad or tell you what you want to hear.

5. Actions Vs. Words

Genuine people will actually do their best and holds true to their promises. Fake people will be all talk and no action. They may say they are going to do something but they never really will.

6. To The Face Vs. Behind Your Back

Genuine people will tell you how it is to your face and fake people will wait until you arent around to say it. They will be your best friend when youre there and your enemy when you arent.

7. Humility Vs. Boasting

Fake people will show off everything that they can while the genuine person will not brag.

8. Good Enough As They Are Vs. Needs Recognition

Genuine people do not need recognition for the things that they do. Knowing they did something is good enough for them but fake people will want people to know their accomplishments and never let those around them forget them.

9. Cleaning Up Other Peoples Messes Vs. Making More Of A Mess

Genuine people (unless someone has gone too far) will...

Republican Senator Jeff Flake blocking votes on all of President Donald Trumps appeals court nominees "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Outgoing GOP Sen. Jeff Flake of Arizona is blocking votes on all of President Donald Trumps appeals court nominees to secure concessions from Republican leaders on tariffs and Cuban travel restrictions.

Flake, a Trump antagonist who is not seeking reelection amid floundering popularity with Arizona Republicans, has not openly addressed the matter, though his seat on a closely divided Senate Judiciary Committee gives him significant leverage over judgeships.

Roll Call first reported that Flake halted a committee vote on Georgia Supreme Court Justice Britt Grants nomination to the 11th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, the federal appeals court based in Atlanta. CNN confirmed late Wednesday that the senator will block all appeals court nominees to prompt discussions on relations with Cuba and the presidents escalating trade war with much of the industrial world.

Flake is one of 11 Republicans on the Senate Judiciary Committee, which issues recommendations on judicial nominees before a final confirmation vote. The GOP has a one-vote majority on the panel, making Flakes cooperation essential if Republicans wish to process candidates.

Image result for jeff flake, photos

As of this writing, there are 10 appeals court nominees pending before the committee, including a candidate for the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals, a regular target of conservative scorn and has jurisdiction over Flakes home state. (RELATED: Interest Groups Key Up For Next Supreme Court Fight)

The senator has not spoken publicly about his tactics, nor has he been clear as to the specific policy accomplishments he hopes to extract in exchange for continued cooperation on judges.

Judicial nominations are a priority for the embattled Republican Senate caucus, which risks losing its tenuous majority in the November elections. A steady clip of confirmations also provides Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell meaningful victories as legislating slows ahead of the midterm campaign season.

McConnell cancelled the Senates August recess on June 5, in part to make progress on a backlog of judicial nominees.

Prime Minister ONeill, Mrs Lynda Babao-ONeill, senior Government Ministers and Members of Parliament, together with a delegation of senior business representatives, now begin a series of engagements that includes bilateral meetings with the Premier and President of China, and current and potential Chinese investors.

Papua New Guinea must reach out and engage with our foreign partners so we can increase trade, stimulate business and create new jobs, the Prime Minister said.

China is now the second largest economy in the world and has enormous market potential for our exports.

This includes exports of oil and gas, but now that we are broadening our own economic base in areas such as agriculture and tourism, we can attract future business from China.

This is important for current economic growth, and even more important, the economy opportunities we are creating for our children and future generations.

BBC portrayal of US decision to leave UNHRC part one "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When the US Secretary of State and the US Ambassador to the UN announced on June 19th that their country would be leaving the UN Human Rights Council, the reason for that decision was made perfectly clear by Ambassador Haley:

One year ago, I traveled to the United Nations Human Rights Council in Geneva. On that occasion, I outlined the U.S. priorities for advancing human rights and I declared our intent to remain a part of the Human Rights Council if essential reforms were achieved. These reforms were needed in order to make the council a serious advocate for human rights. For too long, the Human Rights Council has been a protector of human rights abusers and a cesspool of political bias.

Regrettably, it is now clear that our call for reform was not heeded. Human rights abusers continue to serve on and be elected to the council. The worlds most inhumane regimes continue to escape scrutiny, and the council continues politicizing and scapegoating of countries with positive human rights records in an attempt to distract from the abusers in their ranks.

Therefore, as we said we would do a year ago if we did not see any progress, the United States is officially withdrawing from the UN Human Rights Council. In doing so, I want to make it crystal clear that this step is not a retreat from human rights commitments; on the contrary, we take this step because our commitment does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights....

Incredible satellite images reveal hundreds of lakes in the world's largest sand desert after Cyclone Mekunu "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One of the driest places on earth is looking a bit wet these days. Tropical Cyclone Mekunu rolled over the country of Oman back in May, bringing huge downpours of rain - about 11 inches - to the capital city of Salalah. The nearby desert of Rub' al-Khali, the world's largest sand desert, also received significant precipitation. So much so that NASA's Operational Land Imager captured images of hundreds of tiny lakes that formed in the ripples of the sand dunes, in an area known as the Empty Quarter. The satellite took the images three days after the storm. A cyclone like Mekunu usually happens about once every two years, but it's rare for the country of Oman to bear a huge brunt of rain and wind like it did in May. This type of phenomenon has not occurred in the region for 20 years, according to Al Arabiya.

Building a malware distribution network is too easy with Kardon Loader "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Researchers at Netscout Arbor have discovered a malware downloader advertised on underground forums as a paid open beta product, its name is Kardon Loader.

Researchers from Netscout Arbor have discovered a downloader advertised on underground forums dubbed Kardon Loader, it allows customers to build a malware distribution network or a botshop.

Advs for Kardon Loader were first discovered on April 21, 2018, the author who goes online with the moniker Yattaze asks $50 for the application program and offers it as a standalone build, charging users for each additional rebuild.

Kardon Loader is a malware downloader advertised on underground forums as a paid open beta product. reads a blog post published by Netscout Arbor.

The actor offers the sale of the malware as a standalone build with charges for each additional rebuild, or the ability to set up a botshop in which case any customer can establish their own operation and further sell access to a new customer base.

Downloader malware and botshops are essential components for the creation of botnets that could be used to distribute a broad range of malware such as ransomware, banking Trojans, and cryptocurrency miners.

Crooks use to offer the access to distribution networks as a service in cybercrime underground markets.

Experts believe the Kardon Loader represents a rebrand of the ZeroCool botnet that was built by the same actor.

The advertisement for the Kardon Loader appears very professional, the actor created its own logo and provides a disclaimer claiming that the software should not be used for malicious purposes. He also published a YouTube video that shows the admin panel of the platform.

Below the bot functionalities advertised by the actor:

While skeptical of China, Mahathir embraces Jack Ma "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Malaysian PM regularly blasts Chinese projects for neglecting his people, but he approves of Alibaba's initiatives in his country


Since his surprise electoral win on May 9, Malaysian Prime Minister Mahathir Mohamad has taken hard aim at several China-backed investment projects initiated by his predecessor, ex-premier Najib Razak.

With reviews of infrastructure deals and multilateral trade and security pacts now underway, many have wondered whether recent initiatives by Alibaba Group Holding Ltd, one of the worlds largest e-commerce companies, could face similar tough scrutiny.

But Mahathirs meeting this week with Chinese business magnate Jack Ma, Alibabas co-founder and executive chairman, signaled the Chinese e-commerce giants grand plans for Malaysia will likely continue unperturbed.

Alibaba is in the midst of a massive investment push into Southeast Asia, including the establishment of a so-called Digital Free Trade Zone (DFTZ) based in Malaysia. Launched last November and heavily promoted by former premier Najib, the DFTZ aims to position Malaysia as a regional e-commerce and logistics hub designed to promote small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) exports.

Chronicle launches VirusTotal Monitor to reduce false positives "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Alphabet owned cybersecurity firm Chronicle announced the launch of a new VirusTotal service that promises to reduce false positives. 

VirusTotal Monitor service allows developers to upload their application files to a private cloud store where they are scanned every day using anti-malware solutions from antivirus vendors in VirusTotal.

Every time the service flags the file as malicious, VirusTotal notifies it to antivirus vendor and to the developer.

Of course, files analyzed by the VirusTotal Monitor service will remain private and are not shared by the company with third-parties.

The service implements a Google-drive like interface to allow developers to upload their files and a dashboard to display the scan results. Both developers and AV companies could access the dashboard, the service also provided APIs to integrate Monitor with their tools implemented by developers and antivirus vendors.

Enter VirusTotal Monitor. VirusTotal already runs a multi-antivirus service that aggregates the verdicts of over 70 antivirus engines to give users a second opinion about the maliciousness of the files that they check. reads the announcement published by VirusTotal.

For antivirus vendors this is a big win, as they can now have context about a file: who is the company behind it? when was it released? in which software suites is it found? What are the main file names with which it is distributed? For software developers it is an equally big win, as they can upload their creations to Monitor at pre-publish stage, to ensure a release without issues.

VirusTotal Monitor

VirusTotal pointed out that Monitor service is not a free pass to get any file whitelisted.

Sometimes vendors will indeed decide to keep detections for certain software, ho...

A warning to Leo from his base on his drift towards Mary Lou and Sinn Fein "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I didnt get to share this piece from Sarah Carey in The Times, Ireland edition yesterday. Its a stern warning to Leo Varadkar over his political flirtation with Mary Lou McDonald from a columnist from a committed FG family

The omens indicated something so preposterous and outlandish that I ignored them for too long, but no longer. Mary Lou McDonald, the Sinn Fin leader, says that she wants to form a coalition government with Fianna Fil or Fine Gael. Not on my watch.

Dil reporters persistently observe Leo Varadkar making nice to Sinn Fin in the house. Just think about it, taoiseach, and I am gone, baby; gone. To a parliamentary party meeting he whispers plausibly deniable sweet nothings about a united Ireland. Is he completely off his rocker?

They tell me that anyone under 30 doesnt care about the small matter of Sinn Fin being the political wing of the IRA for decades. Its all history. Perhaps that generation should learn some history then.

My fathers people come from south Armagh, which bore a considerable brunt of IRA terrorism. One of the worst murders was that of Tom Oliver, an entirely innocent father of seven.

The Louth farmer was kidnapped, hideously tortured and murdered. The priest who attended his post-mortem examination said that it looked like they had dropped concrete blocks on every part of his body.

This wasnt at the time of the first Bloody Sunday, in Croke Park in 1920, or even the second one, in Derry in 1972. This was in 1991.

In 2015, Miriam OCallaghan was brave enough to put it to Gerry Adams on RTs Prime Time that he was the court of appeal who sanctioned the Oliver murder. He angrily denied it. Last year Adams said that jailing his murderers would be counterproductive.

Counterproductive for whom? Olivers family say nothing about it in public because they are understood to be fearful of the consequences if they do. Fear of the IRA today is not history. [Emphasis added]

This last objection is likely to resonate with some of the partys key vote in the northern frontier counties of the Republic. But she continues to press home a sharp political difference between north and south:

There is peace now, but it came at a price. One of my fathers cousins predicted that peace would come when Sinn Fin has destroyed the SDLP and the DUP has destroyed the UUP; then theyll sit down and carve up power between them.

His prophecy was fulfilled, proving that it was always only about one thing: power. The centre fell. On each side the wor...

Marine Air is Surging In "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After a period of substantially above normal temperatures, the Northwest's air conditioning is now set to high, as cool, marine air pushes into western Washington tonight.

Meteorologists carefully study the pressure difference between the coast (e.g. at Hoquiam) and Seattle to appraise the situation.  When that difference gets to about 3 hPa, a good push is pretty much guaranteed.  Here are the latest numbers:


Hoquiam minus Seattle is now 3.6 hPa.... a guaranteed marine push.

The latest (10 PM) surface observations show that cool air has pushed into the Strait of Juan de Fuca and has already moved inland south of the Olympics.   Only central Puget Sound is in the 70s....and that will change quickly during the next few hours.


The visible satellite image at 7 PM clearly showed low clouds moving inland from the coast, while thunderstorms were evident over the Cascades (see below).


The cause of this marine push?   The movement of the high pressure ridge inland and the approach of an upper level trough (see upper level-- 500 hPa- map at 5 PM today).

Trump Finally Went Too Far Even for His Own Party "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Well, lo and behold, President Trump was finally shamed into backing himself out of a corner rather than tripling down.

President Donald Trump said he plans to sign an executive action on Wednesday that would end the administrations policy of separating migrant families crossing the U.S.-Mexico border, abandoning the presidents previous stance that only Congress can fix the problem.

The Republicans want security and insist on security for our country. And we will have that, Trump said during a meeting at the White House with lawmakers and officials. At the same time we have compassion and want to keep families together. Its very important. Ill be signing something in a little while thats going to do that.

He added that he hopes his action will matched by legislation.

How bad was this fiasco?

This freaking bad:

Michael Cohen, President Trumps longtime confidant and former personal attorney, has resigned from his post as deputy finance chair of the Republican National Committees Finance Committee, sources close to the RNC told ABC News.

In his resignation letter to Ronna McDaniel, the RNC chair, Cohen cited the ongoing special counsel investigation as one reason for his departure. ABC News has reviewed the email.

This important role requires the full time attention and dedication of each member. Given the ongoing Mueller and SDNY investigations, that simply is impossible for me to do, he wrote.

Cohen also criticized the administrations policy of separating migrant children from their parents at the southern border, the first time hes distanced himself from the president.

As the son of a Polish holocaust survivor, the images and sounds of this family separation policy is heart wrenching, Cohen wrote. While I strongly support measures that will secure our porous borders, children should never be used as bargaining chips.

Im not sure of the timing, but Trumps decision will at least improve his odds of keeping Cohen from flipping purely out of moral outrage at his former bosss cruelty towards children. And thats not nothing, given the stakes for the president.

Of course, while its a good thing that the government will stop making the problem worse, they...

Beyond the Pale of any Acceptable Human Conduct "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Everyone knows that the Trump administrations child separation policy is the kind of catastrophically immoral practice that even Josef Goebbels would officially disavow and call fake news. But that doesnt mean that the people in charge of implementing it are going to stop.

Acting director of U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement Thomas Homan knows the policy is indefensible, but he hasnt tendered his resignation.

In a short but revealing interview, head of ICE Thomas Homan on Tuesday appeared to express discomfort with President Donald Trumps policy of separating immigrant children from their parents.

When CNNs Wolf Blitzer repeatedly pressed him on whether the policy is humane, Homan responded with a long pause and broke eye contact with the host. Even then, he refused to answer the question which is really all the answer any viewer should need.

Mr. Homans boss, Secretary of Homeland Security Kirstjen Nielsen, knows why she was chased out of a Washington D.C. Mexican restaurant (of all places) by protesting members of Democratic Socialists of America. She must know that that was only the beginning of the well-deserved harassment shell receive if this continues on. But she has not resigned.

Vice-President Mike Pence traveled to Philly last night and he knows why it did not go well.

Outside the event, hundreds of protesters descended on Center City during the Stop Separating Families rally to oppose President Donald Trumps immigration policy. Several laid out childrens shoes in solidarity with the families being torn apart at the border.

The crowd chanted City of brotherly love says no, and Say it loud, say it clear, immigrants are welcome here during the protest. One woman also walked through the crowd for at least an hour with a speaker playing the sounds of a baby crying.

Why Won't John Kelly Resign? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

How is this for a profile in political leadership from John Kelly, the White House chief of staff?

Kellys status in the White House has changed in recent months, and he and the president are now seen as barely tolerating one another. According to four people close to Kelly, the former Marine general has largely yielded his role as the enforcer in the West Wing as his relationship with Trump has soured. While Kelly himself once believed he stood between Trump and chaos, he has told at least one person close to him that he may as well let the president do what he wants, even if it leads to impeachment at least this chapter of American history would come to a close.

What kind of person continues on in his or her job beyond the point at which theyve given up on being effective or preventing an historic disaster? Who doesnt seek to exfiltrate themselves for a situation in which high crimes and misdemeanors are being committed in their field of responsibility? How do we view a chief of staff who gives up on leading either his boss or his staff and then just sits there occupying space, making apologies out of one side of his mouth and leaking excuses out of the other?

And this is too generous to Kelly, because hes been a hardliner on immigration and discouraged the president from making any kind of deal with Congress.  If the administration is now committing a crime against humanity at the border, Kelly owns every part of that policy, and all the more every day that he remains in his position.  He just sits there like a bump on a log while the president praises the character of Kim Jong-Un, says Russia properly owns Crimea, and lobbies to have sanctions lifted against Russia and the country returned to the G7.

Now he sounds like hes eager for his whole administration to be frogmarched out of the West Wing because it will end the nightmare were all living through. Does he think hell escape the Tuff-tie hand restraints?

I dont know how to define this behavior because cowardice doesnt seem to quite cover it.

De-Dollarization Escalates: Russia Sells Off Record Amount Of US Treasury Bonds "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The US Treasury Department report for April published on June 15 revealed that Russia sold $47.4 billion out of the $96.1 it had held in Treasury bonds (T-bonds).

In March, Moscow cut its Treasury holdings by $1.6 billion. In February, Russia reduced its bond portfolio by $9.3 billion. Other holders did it too. Japan sold off about $12 billion, China liquidated roughly $7 billion. Ireland ditched over $17 billion.

The tariff wars unleashed by Washington stirred fears that financial markets may be in for a rough ride with American treasuries dumped by some partners, including such major holders as China and Japan, each holding over $1 trillion in bonds.

Russia has cut its holdings in American securities following numerous rounds of sanctions imposed by Washington against Moscow and amid the ongoing trade wars between the US and its allies and partners.

Apple Fined $6.8M in Australia After Error 53 Problems "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The time has come for Apple to pay for the infamous Error 53 that bricked iPhones and iPads taken to a third party for repairs.

The Federal Court of Australia announced Monday its order for Apple to pay AU$9 million (around US $6.8 million converted) for telling customers who encountered the error they weren't entitled to a refund.

The error was first reported in 2016. If you fixed a cracked screen or a failing Touch ID-enabled home button through a third party not licensed by Apple, "security checks" would render your iPhone or iPad unusable, showing only the message "Error 53".

Apple explained the message as a security measure to protect the iPhone's fingerprint sensor from exploitation. It released an iOS 9.2.1 update later that February to restore bricked devices, but reports showed it did not re-enable Touch ID and customers complained they still lost photos, documents and apps.

In April 2017, the Australian Competition and Consumer Commission (ACCC) commenced a legal battle with Apple in the Federal Court of Australia. It said Apple violated customers' rights under Australian Consumer Law to repairs for devices bricked by Error 53.

Then, in June 2017, the ACCC conducted an undercover operation involving 13 calls with Apple retailers in Australia, in which Apple representatives allegedly said Apple did not have responsibility to remedy faulty iPhones repaired by an unauthorised third party.

Apple has since admitted that from February 2015 to February 2016, its US website and Apple staff in Australian stores and on customer service phone calls said to 275 Australian customers affected by Error 53 it wasn't responsible for a remedy.

But according to Australian Consumer Law, that's not on.

South Sudan Kiir, Machar Meet in Addis Ababa
Ethiopa's PM Abiy Ahmed (R) President Salva Kiir ((C) and SPLM-IO leader (Photo Ethiopia Govt)

June 20, 23018 (ADDIS ABABA) - South Sudan President Salva Kiir and SPLM-IO leader Riek Machar Wednesday have finally met on Wednesday in a meeting attended by the Ethiopian Prime Minister Abiy Ahmed.

The meeting was announced in a twit released by the Director of Ethiopian Prime Ministers Office Fitsum Arega without details about the outcome of the encounter.

"HE PM Abiy Ahmed hosted a private dinner to President Salva Kiir and Dr Rieck Machar together. The two met for the first time in two years," said Arega.

"Faced with the continued suffering in South Sudan, Ethiopia simply cant stand by. With more work, a peaceful future is possible in S. Sudan," he further said.

Different sources reached in Addis Ababa said the face-to-face meeting only gathered the two rival leaders and the Ethiopian premier.

The first meeting between Kiir and Machar since July 2016, was supposed to discuss only the outstanding issues in the power-sharing chapter of the peace agreement.

South Sudanese officials under the cover of anonymity told Sudan Tribune that the meeting was not successful and the two leaders didnt agree on anything.

"If the meeting was positive, at least, Abiy would be happy to issue a statement about its outcome, but this was not the case," an official said.

Machar, in a meeting with the civil society and opposition groups, pledged to defend their points of view in the meeting.

The IGAD Council of Ministers will discuss the outcome of the intensive consultations and then will submit its conclusions for considerations to the summit of IGAD head of states and government in the evening.

President Kiir is scheduled to return to Juba on Friday but it is not clear if another meeting will take place between him and Machar.

Upon his arrival to Addis Ababa, Kiir held a separate meeting with Abiy. President Kiir was accompanied by Minister of....

I have been to a lot of street actions over the years but have not taken the streets in the Burgh since the G20 protests of 2009. I wondered if Pittsburgh would turn out with the numbers and intensity that I know we are capable of or was I showing up to yet another planned action that did not materialize.

This community had come together and fearlessly took the streets, they organized and rallied around one another in a way I have not seen since the days duckin tear gas during the g20.  It was beautiful, and it seems the momentum is only growing.

The issue shouldnt be controversial. A child was shot in the back multiple times running from police. There should not be another side to the situation other than a child running from the police is never a justification to kill him. But this is 2018 America and you get the usual bullshit we dont know all the facts or he should not have been running, he should have listened to the police. You see the video, he runs from the car and is shot in the back. Murdered. So now for me the question was are we going to turn out and demand justice or not?

I approached the police station at 6pm in my usual protest attire, black from head to toe. When I rounded the bend, there was already a crowd gathered and a strong black woman was emotionally pleading into the megaphone for justice.  I got the familiar butterflies that accompany such a scene. I got them in Chicago in 2012 at the No NATO protests, I got them in New York City during Occupy, and I got them again today.

Riek Machar, Salva Kiir Meet in Addis Ababa After 2 Years
THURSDAY JUNE 21 2018
Kenya Daily Nation

South Sudan's President Salva Kiir walks towards an airplane at Juba International Airport in Juba, South Sudan, on June 20, 2018 before travelling to Ethiopia's capital Addis Ababa for meeting with the South Sudan's rebel leader Riek Machar for the first time in almost two years on efforts to end a five-year civil war.

The official scope of the talks is broad to build bridges between the two but analysts say the outcome remains unclear given their notoriously volatile relationship and entrenched positions.

Once comrades-in arms in the fight for independence, Kiir and Machar experienced a bitter falling out, a development that played a key part in the civil war that blights the future of the world's youngest state.

Tens of thousands of people have been killed and nearly a third of the 12 million population have been driven out of their homes, and many to the brink of starvation.

The two figures at the centre of the civil war that has ravaged South Sudan met for the first time in nearly two years on Wednesday evening in the Ethiopian capital.

South Sudan's president Salva Kiir and rebel leader Riek Machar, who fled South Sudan in July 2016, went into a closed door meeting at the Ethiopian prime minister's office.

SCOPE

Machar, who was greeted ahead of the meeting by Ethiopia's foreign minister, Worken Gebeyehu, arrived in Addis Ababa Wednesday morning.

Kiir followed in the afternoon and was met by prime minister Abiy Ahmed.

Desktop Radio Telescope Images The WiFi Universe "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its been a project filled with fits and starts, and it very nearly ended up as a Fail of the Week feature, but were happy to report that the [Thought Emporium]s desktop WiFi radio telescope finally works. And its pretty darn cool.

If youve been following along with the build like we have, youll know that this stems from a previous, much larger radio telescope that [Justin] used to visualize the constellation of geosynchronous digital TV satellites. This time, he set his sights closer to home and built a system to visualize the 2.4-GHz WiFi band. A simple helical antenna rides on the stepper-driven azimuth-elevation scanner. A HackRF SDR and GNU Radio form the receiver, which just captures the received signal strength indicator (RSSI) value for each point as the antenna scans. The data is then massaged into colors representing the intensity of WiFi signals received and laid over an optical image of the scanned area. The first image clearly showed a couple of hotspots, including a previously unknown router. An outdoor scan revealed routers galore, although that took a little more wizardry to pull off.

The videos below recount the whole tale in detail; skip to part three for the payoff if you must, but at the cost of missing some valuable lessons and a few cool tips, like using flattened pieces of Schedule 40 pipe as a construction material. We hope to see more from the project soon, and wonder if this FPV racing drone tracker might offer some helpful hints for expansion.

The Immigration Distraction

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By Patrick J. McShay




"The Obama Administration prosecuted 500,000 illegal immigrants between 2010 and 2016. They referred a fifth of those for prosecution, which often resulted in family separations."
*The Daily Caller

"Trumps zero-tolerance policy is concerning but isn't a huge departure from what we saw under Obama, as 52% of all federal criminal prosecutions were for immigration-related crimes when he left office."

* Matthew Kolken- Immigration Attorney

Just last month The American Civil Liberties Union announced that after pouring over thousands of documents they discovered a mountain of evidence of "pervasive abuse of unaccompanied immigrant children detained by the US Customs and Border Protection," from 2009 to 2016 during Barack Obama's presidency.

Mitra Ebadolahi, a Border Litigation staff attorney for the ACLU, scolding the Obama administration for their cruel policies said, "All human beings deserve to be treated with dignity and respect regardless of their immigration status, and children, in particular, deserve special protection." Where was the mainstream media outrage during Obama's disastrous presidency?

*I don't remember Rachel Maddow breaking down and crying on her show about immigration abuses under her hero Obama. This phony outrage is political!

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

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.

Ebola Outbreak in Congo is 'Largely Contained': World Health Organization
Democratic Republic of Congo's Ebola outbreak has been "largely contained" and no new cases of the disease have been confirmed since the last known sufferer died on June 9.

The World Health Organization said it viewed the situation with "cautious optimism," despite the difficulty of tracking down people who may have been exposed to the deadly virus.

Democratic Republic of Congo's Ebola outbreak has been "largely contained" and no new cases of the disease have been confirmed since the last known sufferer died on June 9, the World Health Organization said on Wednesday.

The U.N. health body said it viewed the situation with "cautious optimism," despite the difficulty of tracking down people who may have been exposed to the deadly virus in remote forests close to the Congo River.

The outbreak has killed 28 people since early April.

"Slightly over a month into the response, further spread of EVD (Ebola virus disease) has largely been contained," the organization said in a report.

The outbreak triggered particular concern because it occurred in a remote northwestern area that was hard to reach but close to the Congo River, causing fears it could take root in a neighboring city or spread to the capital Kinshasa, a city of more than 10 million people.

There were also fears that river transport could help the virus spread to neighboring Central African Republic and the Republic of Congo.

This outbreak is Congo's ninth, but the first to be countered with a "ring vaccination" strategy, where all contacts of known patients are vaccinated to try and stop the spread.

"The number of contacts requiring follow-up is progressively decreasing, with a total 1,417 completing the mandatory 21-day follow-up period. As of 17 June 2018...

New Shingles Vaccine is Highly Effective, Long-lasting and in Short Supply
By Lena H. Sun
Washington Post
June 20 at 10:20 AM

A national shortage of a new and more effective vaccine to protect adults older than 50 from the painful rash known as shingles is prompting retailers to create waiting lists and the manufacturer to delay additional promotion.

Shingrix, licensed in the fall by the Food and Drug Administration, is the preferred vaccine recommended by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention for protection from a disease that affects 1 in 3 adults in their lifetime. By recommending that healthy adults start receiving the vaccine at age 50 a decade earlier than the previous recommendation federal health officials are hoping that millions more people will be protected from shingles, which is caused by the reactivation of the same virus that causes chickenpox.

One of the most common complications of shingles in those 50 and older is nerve pain that can last for months or even years after a shingles rash goes away and can be so debilitating that the touch of clothing on skin can cause searing pain. It has no treatment or cure.

The new two-dose vaccine provides greater protection more than 90 percent and lasts longer than the older single-shot vaccine that has been in use since 2006. The CDC recommends that people should get the new vaccine if they have had shingles, have previously received the old vaccine or have had or are unsure if they have had chickenpox. There are an estimated 1 million cases of shingles in the United States each year; the risk of the disease increases as people age.

Since the new vaccine became broadly available in the United States earlier this year, demand has soared. Supply has not kept pace. Manufacturer GlaxoSmithKline implemented order limits and providers have experienced shipping delays, according to a note posted on the CDCs vaccine shortage list earlier this month. Even though GSK is working to increase supply, those order limits and shipping delays will continue through 2018, the note said. The CDC began reporting shortages in early May.

The scarce supply of Shingrix is likely to be mentioned at a regularly scheduled meeting Wednesday of the federal panel that advises the CDC on imm...

Exopolitics: Trumps Plan for US Space Force Challenges Deep State Secrecy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Trumps Plan for US Space Force challenges Deep State Secrecy

WRITTEN BY DR MICHAEL SALLA ON JUNE 20, 2018.

On June 18, President Donald Trump gave a speech where he called for the development of a United States Space Force that takes over current space functions of the U.S. Air Force. The proposed Space Force would become the sixth branch of the U.S. military, and would have equal authority to the USAF.

At the National Space Council meeting held at the White House, Trump said:

We must have American dominance in space Im hereby directing the Department of Defense and Pentagon to immediately begin the process necessary to establish a space force as the sixth branch of the armed forces. We are going to have the Air Force, and we are going to have the space force. Separate, but equal. It is going to be something so important.

Trump then commanded General Joseph Dunford, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, to carry that assignment out.

Trumps stance is at odds with previous statements by the U.S. Air Force Secretary, Air Force Chief of Staff, and James Mattis, Secretary of Defense, who all came out in opposition to a Congressional initiative in 2017 to establish a Space Corps. Mattis wrote in a letter:

I oppose the creation of a new military service and additional organizational layers at a time when we are focused on reducing overhead and integrating joint warfighting efforts.

Trumps initiative thereby stands out since he has gone against the recommendations of his most senior military advisors.

As pointed out by one military analyst, Trump does not have the authority...

England open their World Cup campaign against Tunisia at Volgograd Arena on Monday night. Ahead of the kick-off, many supporters took the time to visit the Mamayev Kurgan memorial, which pays testament to the city's tragic past. Formerly named Stalingrad, the city saw more than 1 million people killed, wounded or captured between 1942 to 1943 in the battle between Red Army forces and the Nazis. The Soviet victory was seen as a key turning point in the war, and the tremendous losses suffered means the Battle of Stalingrad has been etched into the Russian psyche ever since.

12 Clinton Whistleblowers Found Hanging From Doorknobs

Date: June 18, 2018

A CIA agent claims the recent spate of celebrity suicides all bear the hallmarks of a professional hit job, designed to silence others from going public with damaging political information.

Following the death of CNN reporter Anthony Boudain last week, former agent Robert David Steele pointed out that a growing number of whistleblowers have all been found inexplicably hanging from doorknobs.

Bourdains suicide followed the death of fashion designer Kate Spade only a few days prior. Like Mr. Bourdain, Spade was also found hanging from a doorknob.

Spade and Bourdain both had knowledge of child sex trafficking operation linked to the Clintons.

According to agent Steele, the circumstances of the death has a significant symbolic meaning that intelligence agencies immediately recognize:

If only there were evil people somewhere insidiously committing evil deeds, and it were necessary only to separate them from the rest of us and destroy them. But the line dividing good and evil cuts through the heart of every human being. And who is willing to destroy a piece of his own heart? During the life of any heart this line keeps changing place; sometimes it is squeezed one way by exuberant evil and sometimes it shifts to allow enough space for good to flourish. One and the same human being is, at various ages, under various circumstances, a totally different human being. At times he is close to being a devil, at times to sainthood. But his name doesn't change, and to that name we ascribe the whole lot, good and evil. Socrates taught us: 'Know thyself!' 

"To do evil a human being must first of all believe that what hes doing is good, or else that its a well-considered act in conformity with natural law. Fortunately, it is in the nature of the human being to seek justification for his actions. Macbeths self-justifications were feeble and his conscience devoured him. Yes, even Iago was a little lamb too. The imagination and the spiritual strength of Shakespeares evildoers stopped short at a dozen corpses. Because they had no ideology.

On The GoldFish Report No. 237, Louisa and co-host Steve meet for another short coffee break to discuss a Q ANON post and what it might be trying to reveal to humanity. Louisa presents the circumstantial evidence that supports the Hypothesis that Q is trying to tell people that a huge Planetary body in our solar system is causing the water to disappear as the world turns and wobbles, thus causing the waters to recede and unprecedented volcanic eruptions and earthquakes. This is being covered up by chem-trails and a sun simulator to camouflage the eclipses that occur when these bodies pass in front of our sun. Steve plays devils advocate with providing critical analysis and scrutiny of the evidence, and many good points are made as we try to solve the Q ANON riddles. Q Anon posts that pertain to "Watch The Water" and "AS THE WORLD TURNS" and SKY EVENT" are among some of the posts this report focuses on.

It seems that Hawaii and the ongoing volcanic activity and earthquakes there are central to a larger piece of the big picture than we may realize.

Some people seem to know this, and share their findings and information. I submit that they are on the right track, at the very least, and while its difficult to say how much they know, they are providing dots for us to connect.

Im going to share some of the information available that hints at the bigger picture and offers dots for those who feel guided to examine them, because to say all the seismic and volcanic activity on our planet now is natural is a stretch for me, as Ive said. To suggest that this is all just Gaia going through birthing pains as she transcends 3D is not supported by what Im seeing, but maybe Im just too suspicious.

Is any of this activity affected by celestial alignments and cosmic forces? This is all new to us so we dont know.

Many messengers who are in the know about various aspects of the situation on our planet keep some of their intel to themselves; for their safety and that of their informants (if they have any), and so as not to frighten the masses.

We have been cautioned that 80 per cent or more of information on the Internet is mis/disinfo. Much of it is fear porn, and we understand that much of what we see is to guide us away from the truth.

Occupy ICE PDX Calls on People to Establish Their Own Occupations and Abolish ICE "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Occupy ICE PDX Calls on People to Establish Their Own Occupations and Abolish ICE appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following is a call from Occupy ICE PDX organizers for more occupations to form in order to push for the abolition of ICE.

Beginning on Sunday, June 17th, community members from all walks of life, working together with the Direct Action Alliance, Portland Assembly, and the Portland Democratic Socialists of America, organized a protest in the area around an ICE facility in southwest Portland with legal support provided by the National Lawyers Guild, to protest the Trump administrations monstrous and inhumane policy of separating children from their families at the border. The protest, located at 4310 SW Macadam, has quickly developed into an occupation, with tents, supplies, facilities, and even a tiny library. On Tuesday night the occupiers committed to staying there until concrete and meaningful action is taken to reunite these families, and since Wednesday the facility has been rendered inoperative. Though there have been confrontations with police and DHS, police repression has remained minimal.

Now a few days into the occupation, what started as dozens of protesters has grown to as many as a few hundred spread across multiple encampments outside the building. We are calling on activists across the country to establish their own occupations to abolish ICE. Wherever ICE agents dare to show their faces, they must be challenged and shamed for carrying out this fascist policy. Since instituting the zero-tolerance policy, over 2,000 children have been separated from their parents, and many may never be reunited with their parents, as there is no system in place to bring them back together. There are over 11,000 immigrant children currently housed in government shelters, many of whom are here because they are fleeing violence in countries destabilized by this countrys own imperial apparatus.

Many of these migrants are seeking asylum, and separating their children displays the rank cruelty of this policy and exposes the evil intent behind it. This is not about protecting citizens or securing the border, it is about punishing those who come with dreams of peace and a better future. These children are being held in cages, forbidden to speak to their parents, denied human touch and compassion the trauma will last a lifetime.

Make no mistake, ICE is a white supremacist organization following the orders of a white supremacist administration, and the intent of these policies is to discourage all nonwhite immigration, legal and illegal, and to preserve the power of the rapidly....

The Awans and Wasserman Schultz Threaten To Destroy the Deep State (Part 2)



There are multiple freight trains headed the way of the Deep State. I know it is hard to believe that Hillary will ever spend a day behind bars. However, after reading this 3 part series, it is hard to believe that she will not. If it one thing to dodge one bullet. It is another to dodge a volley of bullets fired at point blank range and that is what key members of the Deep State are facing, especially Hillary.

The Clinton email investigation by Comey and the IG report provided Federal authorities with enough to prosecute Hillary Clinton, John Podesta, Debbie Wasserman Schultz, Comey, McCabe, Paige, Strzok, Paige et al.

Keep in mind, the FBI never looked at the content on the DNC server. Many feel that would have implicated Podesta in th murder of Seth Rich. The IG report stopped just short of implicating Obama in the fake Dossier which should be sending Loretta Lynch to prison along with Rosenstein.

In Part One, I detailed how McCain, Clinton and Obama are implicated in the formation and providing material support for terrorists including ISIS. Previously, I exposed Clinton and Obama for Benghazi and the attempted cover up that they sanctioned, with regard to gun running, drug dealing and child-sex-trafficking. Benghazi, as I previously revealed was conducted to cover up these crimes, just 7 weeks before the 2012 election.

Huma Abedin and Anthony Weiner have tapes on virtually all of these events according to a deep cover FBI source. I have written about this a number of times, maybe now, people are ready to connect the same dots I did back in 2016.

New Flu Vaccine Works a Little Better than Traditional Shot
Wednesday, 20 June 2018 02:30 PM

A newer kind of flu vaccine only worked a little bit better in seniors this past winter than traditional shots, the government reported Wednesday.

Overall, flu vaccines barely worked at all in keeping people 65 and older out of the hospital, with roughly 24 percent effectiveness.

The best performance was by a new shot called Flucelvax; it was about 26.5 percent effective in that age group. The difference wasn't as large as some had hoped.

"The big problem is still the same we need better vaccines. But these incremental improvements are very important," said Brendan Flannery, a flu expert at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.

The findings of the Food and Drug Administration study were presented in Atlanta Wednesday to a panel that advises the government on vaccine recommendations.

The vast majority of flu shots in the U.S. are made in chicken eggs. Seqirus' Flucelvax is made by growing viruses in animal cells instead.

The U.S. just went through one of the most severe flu seasons in more than a decade, driven by a nasty flu bug that tends to cause more hospitalizations and deaths, particularly among the elderly. Researchers are finding vaccines made in eggs don't work well against that kind of flu bug. Growing vaccines in cells is thought to provide a better match.

In a statement, Seqirus said it was encouraged by the results and is doing additional analysis.

The FDA study included more than 13 million Medicare beneficiaries. It looked at what kind of flu shots they got and whether they came down with a flu that put them in the hospital. Flu diagnoses were not based on lab confirmations, though, so the results could have underestimated the vaccines' effectiveness if other bugs had made them sick, experts noted.

The study also showed that a higher-dose, egg-based vaccine intended for seniors worked slightly better than the traditional dose.

For Americans of all ages, the CDC estimates that flu shots were 40 percent effective against all strains this past season. They were far less effective against the kind that made most people sick.

End routine strip searching of women Australia told at UN "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Australian governments should end the routine strip searching of women in prison the Human Rights Law Centre has told the UN Human Rights Council in a statement delivered in Geneva overnight.

The statement responds to a major report on the situation in Australia, delivered by the UN expert on violence against women. Her report raises a number of concerns about womens imprisonment, including "excessive incarceration, prison overcrowding, strip-searching, solitary confinement [and] lack of alternatives to custodial sentences".

The report finds that "imprisoned women have commonly experienced domestic violence and sexual assault" and concludes that "the continued practice of strip-searching women within prisons exacerbates this trauma".

Australian governments are imprisoning women, and in particular Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander women, at record rates. Vickie Roach, an Indigenous advocate and former prisoner, said that governments need to respect womens dignity, not take it away

"We should be helping women to heal, not harming them further. What earthly purpose do strip searches serve other than to degrade and humiliate and assert control over our bodies, our naked bodies?" said Ms Roach.

Ruth Barson, Director of Legal Advocacy at the Human Rights Law Centre, said that routine strip searches are an archaic and humiliating, yet everyday practice for thousands of women behind bars in Australia.

"Being forced to remove every last item of clothing in front of two prison guards again and again, strips women of dignity and hope. Australian Governments can and should end this degrading practice today."

Across Australia, strip searches are conducted on a regular and routine basis, including upon entry to the prison, when family or friends visit, when leaving the prison to see a doctor, or to attend court.

"When a mother wants to hug her visiting child; when a pregnant woman has a check-up with her doctor; when a woman has to attend court she is subjected to a damaging strip search. There are far less intrusive scanning technologies that governments could choose to use right now to spare women this harm," said Ms Barson.

The UK and the ACT have both changed their prison policies and adopted less invasive methods, such as pat-downs, scanners and x-rays.

This is the Australian Governments second session as a newly elected member of the Human Rights Council. The Government was elected to the Council last year on a promise to uphold womens and Indigenous peoples rights.

In its incoming pledge to the Council, the Australian Government promise...

Will the European Union ruin the internet? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A committee of MEPs has voted to accept major changes to European copyright law, which experts say could change the nature of the internet.

They voted to approve the controversial Article 13, which critics warn could put an end to memes, remixes and other user-generated content.

Article 11, requiring online platforms to pay publishers a fee if they link to their news content, was also approved.

One organisation opposed to the changes called it a dark day.

The European Parliaments Committee on Legal Affairs voted by 15 votes to 10 to adopt Article 13 and by 13 votes to 12 to adopt Article 11.

It will now go to the wider European Parliament to vote on in July.

Article 11 has been called the link tax by opponents.

How Israel and the West brainwashes its people against the people of Gaza "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It's frightening. Unprincipled psychologists, in the service of a malignant regime, use sophisticated techniques in order to control the mind of a person from afar. The term "brainwashing" was born in 1950. It is a Chinese word ("xinao", literally wash brain). Originally it served to describe a technique used - so it was claimed - by Chinese masterminds to manipulate the minds of American prisoners in the Korean War. They changed their unconscious mental processes and turned them into agents of sinister forces. Many books and movies purported to show how this works. For example, the classic film "The Manchurian Candidate" shows how the communists take an American prisoner-of-war in the Korean war, an officer, manipulate his mind and give him an order to kill the US presidential candidate. The American officer does not know that he has been turned unconsciously into a communist agent. He does not remember the order given him under hypnosis and does not know that he acts accordingly.

US Pulls Out of Human Rights Council as Israel Prepares Major Offensive on Gazan, Lebanese Civilian Targets "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW YORK In a move that the UNs human rights chief, Zeid Raad al-Hussein, called disappointing, if not really surprising, news, the United States announced on Tuesday that it would be withdrawing from the international bodys Human Rights Council in protest of what it called the hypocritical and self-serving organizations unending hostility towards Israel. Nikki Haley, the U.S. ambassador to the United Nations, further asserted that the council makes a mockery of human rights and is a cesspool of political bias, particularly when it comes to Israel. Israel has long rejected the Human Rights Council and was the first nation to boycott the councils review of its human rights record since the bodys creation in 2006.

The U.S. decision comes after several embarrassing defeats for the U.S. at the UN over the past year relating to the policies of its ally Israel, which has come under fire in recent months for its ongoing offensive against the Gaza Strip and its slaughter of hundreds of unarmed Palestinian protesters since late March. The most recent of those defeats took place last Wednesday when the UN General Assembly overwhelmingly condemned Israels use of excessive, disproportionate and indiscriminate force against Palestinian civilians, with 120 nations voting in favor of the resolution and only eight including the U.S. and Israel voting against.

A week prior to that defeat, Ambassador Haley had been filmed begging members of the UN Security Council to vote in favor of her resolution condemning Palestinians for the violence in Gaza even though no Israeli citizens have been killed. Haleys pleas were resoundingly rejected, forcing her to be the only person on the Security Council to vote in favor of the resolution. That failure was widely regarded as a...

Trumps Executive Order "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published June 21, 2018

WASHINGTON   The executive order the president signed on Wednesday is titled Affording Congress an Opportunity to Address Family Separation.

Read full executive order:

By the authority vested in me as President by the Constitution and the laws of the United States of America, including the Immigration and Nationality Act (INA), 8 U.S.C. 1101 et seq., it is hereby ordered as follows:

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...

Comey Let Hillary Walk When He Knew Foreign Agents Hacked Secret Emails "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


There is no question now after the Inspector Generals Report that Comey was off the charts. The FBI even knew that foreign actors had access to Hillary Clinton emails including at least one classified message 7 weeks BEFORE Comey let her off the hook. The most disturbing thing was he never took notes during her interview to clearly protect her.

House memo found the FBI knew at least one Clinton email marked secret had been hacked by foreign agents before Comey announced no charges against her. The memo raises serious questions about Comey and the games he has played.

This is seriously shaping up to be a bureaucratic attempt at a coup and Mueller is still trying to go after anyone to testify against Trump.

Sherlock Holmes watches the world's most libertarian sport [updated] "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Well, not Sherlock Holmes himself, but his author, Arthur Conan Doyle, who wrote the following about the world's most libertarian sport, Australian football, after watching the 1920 VFL Grand Final between Carlton & Richmond:

I know something about football, for I played Rugby for the Edinburgh University and soccer with the Hampshire team. I have also seen the best American football. I consider the Australian game is magnificent, and from the spectacular point of view it is probably the best of them all.
    The man-handling element in the British game, when the play is fast and the scrums break up, make it an extraordinarily fine game, but in the Australian game there is such constant movement that it stands by itself. They have developed several points which are quite new to me. One of them is accurate passing by low drop kicking. I think that could be introduced into the English game with very great advantage, for it seems to be faster than any pass by hand. Another point that struck me was the extraordinary accuracy of the screw kickingthat is to say when a man running past the goal kicks a goal at right angles to his own line. I have never seen anything to touch the accuracy of both the punting and drop kicking.
    I should think that it is the most gruelling of any game I have seen, and yet the players appeared to be as fresh in the last quarter as they were in the first, and they were playing with just as much vigour.
UPDATE:

World's most libertarian sport?
Football is not a game of rules, it is a collection of understandings. It must be so because a game that is played across a vast open field with an odd shaped ball by 36 players who are permitted to tackle and bump and maintain physical contact cannot be subject to rules. Its like suggesting that a war be subject to the off-side law.
   So, it is a collection of understandings that governs the behaviour of the players. They will not act dangerously and push an opponent in the back, they will not trip each other, they will not strike each other with intent, they will not throw the ball, they will not tackle each other above the shoulders. These notions are what we might call footballs truths. The umpire is only there to adjudicate when a player goes beyond these boundaries. True, there are rules around certain aspects of the game, like the scoring, but the essence of the game is not found in government.

Switzerland Reject Real Money Proposal to Eliminate Banks from Creating Electronic Money by Lending "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In Switzerland, we get to see how people who are really clueless about how the economy works still manage to get outrageous referendums on the ballot. A radical plan to transform Switzerlands financial landscape was rejected, thank God, which would have barred commercial banks from electronically creating money when they lend. These people have no idea what such a proposal would have done. Their homes would have collapsed in value for there would be no mortgages. If banks could lend only the money on deposit and you withdrew your account, then does that mean a bank would have to shut down a mortgage and throw you out of your house?

All 26 of the countrys self-governing cantons also voted against it. The supporters needed a majority from all of Switzerlands cantons as well as a simple majority of voters to succeed in such a proposal. The very idea of introducing a vollgeld or real money system convinced voters to reject the proposals. The outcome would have created such an economic disaster Switzerland would have committed suicide and entered a complete Dark Age unto itself.

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

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.

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.

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.

Can the FBI Be Independent? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When President Donald Trump appointed Atlanta lawyer Christopher Wray to succeed James Comey as the director of the FBI, my initial reaction was not positive. Wray is a veteran of the Department of Justice and is part of that good-old-boy DOJ network that knows how to protect its own. Indeed, when then-New Jersey Gov. Chris Christie, a former U.S. attorney, needed a good criminal defense lawyer whose millions in fees were paid by New Jersey taxpayers he hired Wray.

Christie was never indicted in the Bridgegate scandal, but defense counsel for those who were sought Christies cellphone to demonstrate to jurors the governors involvement in the plot to shut down lanes near the George Washington Bridge for political retaliation. Christie claimed that he gave his phone to federal prosecutors, but they told the court that they did not have the phone. Where was it? In a safe of the Atlanta law firm that employed Wray.

The FBI director-to-be, sitting in his office in Atlanta, failed to provide evidence he had that he knew a federal court in Newark was seeking. This sordid episode was not dwelled upon during Wrays confirmation hearings, at the end of which he was confirmed to a 10-year term running the FBI. So Trumps search for an outsider who would change the Comey-led culture of political justice and run the nations premier law enforcement agency according to the rule of law turned up the ultimate insider.

Earlier this week, Wray testified before the Senate Judiciary Committee on the behavior of FBI agents including the former director and former deputy director during the criminal investigation of former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton. Wray had to thread a small needle.

On the one hand, the FBI is an investigative entity only. It does not decide whom or what to charge; it merely reports its findings to federal prosecutors in conjunction with their presentation of evidence to grand juries. As such, the FBI is subject to the DOJ prosecutors for whom it works, and the DOJ, of course, works for the president.

On the other hand, because both the DOJ and the FBI are guided by the ethical rules that govern lawyers and by the values of the rule of law implicit in American culture and recognized by the courts, the DOJ enjoys some independence from the president, and the FBI enjoys some independence from the DOJ. Principles such as equal protection under the law and due process of law protect life, liberty and property and trump instructions of the president to the DOJ and instructions of the DOJ to the FBI. Stated differently, the FBI must go where the evidence of crime leads it, and the DOJ must prosecute when the evidence is lawfully sufficient, no matter the subject.

This obviously becomes complex and treacherous when the president is the subject of the FBIs investigation, because one of the rule...

Postliterate America "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I was just interviewed by two Temple journalism students, Amelia Burns and Erin Moran, and though they appeared very bright and enterprising, with Erin already landing a job that pays all her bills, I feel for these young ladies, for this is a horrible time to make and sell words, of any kind, and the situation will only get worse. Were well into postliteracy.

With widespread screen addiction, hardly anyone buys books or newspapers anymore. My local newspaper, the Philadelphia Inquirer (Inky), no longer has a book review section. Its retired editor, Frank Wilson, was never replaced. Frank had three of my books reviewed, Night, AgainFake House and Blood and Soap, but the last was in 2004.

Frank lives near me, so I see him around. A lifelong Philadelphian, he takes pride in knowing the city well. Speaking of Steve Lopez, an Inky reporter who made his name with a novel about North Philly, Badlands, Frank sneered that Lopez didnt actually try heroin, so he didnt really know what he was talking about. Frank did.

If you mess with Frank, the bearded, snarling Irishman will maul you with his cane. Franks not just ancient, but old school.

After moving to Philly in 1982, Id read Clark DeLeons daily column in the Inky. Covering the city with knowledge, heart and humor, DeLeon helped me to feel grounded, and challenged me to explore my new home. After 23 years at the same sloppy-topped gun-metal gray desk, DeLeon was fired, however, a casualty of postliteracy.

Clark, For 16 years I wrote six columns a week for the papers metro section. In later years I was cut back to five columns a week. In the final year, I was down to 1 column a week in the feature section.

No longer a professional journalist, Clark earns his keep by working as a costumed tour guide outside Independence Hall. Done with work, hed often down a few at Dirty Franks. A tall, square-jawed and rugby playing dude, Clark would sit there in his black tricorne hat, brown waistcoat and white shirt with billowing sleeves, like a hulking Paul Revere, here to announce the worst of possible news. The death of the word, and thus thinking, is coming!

One recent evening, there was karaoke at Franks, so Clark got up to sing Springsteens My Hometown. With his strong, sonorous voice, Clark handled its lyrics expertly, but then he unexpectedly choked up, and had to stop. Its understandable, because the songs depiction of economic collapse describes the country and city he loves, as well as his own plight:

Girding for Confrontation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On May 30th, Secretary of Defense James Mattis announced a momentous shift in American global strategic policy. From now on, he decreed, the U.S. Pacific Command (PACOM), which oversees all U.S. military forces in Asia, will be called the Indo-Pacific Command (INDOPACOM). The name change, Mattis explained, reflects the increasing connectivity between the Indian and Pacific Oceans, as well as Washingtons determination to remain the dominant power in both.

What? You didnt hear about this anywhere?  And even now, youre not exactly blown away, right? Well, such a name change may not sound like much, but someday you may look back and realize that it couldnt have been more consequential or ominous.  Think of it as a signal that the U.S. military is already setting the stage for an eventual confrontation with China.

If, until now, you hadnt read about Mattiss decision anywhere, Im not surprised since the media gave it virtually no attention less certainly than would have been accorded the least significant tweet Donald Trump ever dispatched.  What coverage it did receive treated the name change as no more than a passing symbolic gesture, a Pentagon ploy to encourage India to join Japan, Australia, and other U.S. allies in Americas Pacific alliance system. In Symbolic Nod to India, U.S. Pacific Command Changes Name was the headline of a Reuters story on the subject and, to the extent that any attention was paid, it was typical.

That the medias military analysts failed to notice anything more than symbolism in the deep-sixing of PACOM shouldnt be surprising, given all the attention being paid to other major international developments the pyrotechnics of the Korean summit in Singapore, the insults traded at and after the G7 meeting in Canada, or the ominous gathering storm over Iran.  Add to this the poor grasp so many journalists have of the nature of the U.S. militarys strategic thinking.  Still, Mattis himself has not been shy about the geopolitical significance of linking the Indian and Pacific Oceans in such planning.  In fact, it represents a fundamental shift in U.S. military thinking with potentially far-reaching consequences.

Consider the backdrop to the name change: in recent months, the U.S. has stepped up its naval patrols in waters adjacent to Chinese-occupied islands in the South China Sea (as has China), raising the prospect of future clashes between the warships of the two countries. Such moves have been accompanied by ever more threatening language from....

This Could Rock the World Economy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Humans are by nature somewhat myopic. We tend to focus primarily on what is right in front of us and filter out things further removed. As a result, we can sometimes overlook important factors.

As Americans, we generally devote most of our attention on American policy. We follow political maneuverings in Washington D.C., study the Feds most recent pronouncements and track the US stock markets. But we also need to remember there is a whole wide world out there that can have a major impact on the larger economy and our investment portfolio.

One factor that could potentially rock the world economy that a lot of American may not be aware of is the mess in the European banking system.

In a recent podcast, Peter Schiff talked about the impact the European Central Bank could have on the economy. Mario Draghis comments indicating he plans to hold interest rates at zero for another year roiled the markets. But thats not the only issue facing the eurozone. As economist Dr. Thorsten Polleit noted in a recent article published by the Mises Wire, many euro banks are in lousy shape.

So what? you might ask. Well, the European banking system is huge. It accounts for 268% of gross domestic product (GDP) in the euro area. If the sector collapses, thats bad news for the broader world economy.

One of the biggest problem children in European banking is Deutsche Bank. As of March 2018, the German giant had a balance sheet of close to 1.5 trillion euro, accounting for about 45% of German GDP. Polliet described this as an enormous, frightening dimension.

Beware of big banks  this is what we could learn from the latest financial and economic crises 2008/2009. Big banks have the potential to take an entire economy hostage: When they get into trouble, they can drag everything down with them, especially the innocent bystanders taxpayers and, if and when the central banks decide to bail them out, those holding fiat money and fixed income securities denominated in fiat money.

Polleit identifies two primary banking risks   l...

This very well made film is very interesting because it shows how the Russians started a major industrial manufacturing project from scratch, and built it up over several years, much of it in great secrecy because it involved creating a domestic limousine for Russias leaders.

Revealing insight into contemporary Russian manufacturing conditions. Full transcript of the 30 minute film follows below.

Here is Putin showing off his new ride to Abu Dhabis crown prince:

Transcript:

The president of Russia will be using a locally made limo of the new Kortezh series. They promised to create a new, domestically produced limo.

The only real leak was made last winter in Sweden. The project was given the code name Kortezh. Project Kortezh.

The rumors, speculations and wild guesses that have come from pseudo car experts in the last 5 years are too many to even count, Same goes for the designs and photos that had been spread on the internet with the title, The Biggest Secret Of Russian Car Industry Revealed.

It was meant to attract such close attention, especially considering the level of secrecy that surrounded its development and testing. Especially considering that Project Kortezh still means to many only the presidential state car, even though its not true. And especially considering all the things implemented in our country for the first time.

Russias first luxury car that competes with Rolls Royce, Bentley and executive models of Mercedes. How is this even possible, considering the short time that it took to bring this ambitious and bold project to life

Aurus is a new Russian car brand. Like a golden alloy. Aurum means gold in Latin. The Rus part is clear without translation. For now, its available in three body styles limo, sedan, and minivan. The biggest premiere is, of course, the executive limo for the highest state officials. A long-awaited premiere.

Its strong, its invincible, but at the same time its kind.

Its very easy to drive. Its responsive to acceleration and braking.

Could you say that its the safest car available today?

I think so.

So it could be stamped with Cleared by Federal Protective Service?

Yes, it could.

Franciss Misguided War "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It seems that Pope Francis has learned little since his 2015 papal encyclical calling on the world to fight climate change by limiting the use of modern technologies and fossil fuels. At a recent Vatican meeting he called many of the worlds leading oil company executives to the carpet. Francis told the executives they should shift from fossil fuels to renewable energy sources to fight global warming.

Pope Francis has myriad misguided beliefs about climate science, almost all of which he holds based on faith alone, as if they were holy writ. Even worse, his belief that society can transition from fossil fuels while reducing hunger and poverty is downright dangerous.

Despite the false claims of climate alarmists, fossil fuels have been a boon to the world. They supply affordable and abundant power for lighting, transportation, refrigeration, clean water, modern agriculture (including food delivery, storage, and protection from early decay and pests), indoor air-conditioning and heating, cooking, and the multitude of other technologies upon which modern societies are based. In attacking fossil fuels, Pope Francis is undermining the very resources and technologies most responsible for raising literally billions of people out of poverty. Coal, natural gas, and oil remain vital to increasing lifespans, decreasing infant mortality, and helping humans generally flourish.

In his brilliant book The Moral Case for Fossil Fuels, Alex Epstein wrote, Climate is no longer a major cause of death, thanks in large part to fossil fuels Not only are we ignoring the big picture by making the fight against climate danger the fixation of our culture, we are fighting climate change by opposing the weapon that has made it dozens of times less dangerous. The popular climate discussion looks at man as a destructive force for climate livability, one who makes the climate dangerous because we use fossil fuels. In fact, the truth is we dont take a safe climate and make it dangerous; we take a dangerous climate and make it safe.

Pope Francis and many other world leaders ignore this important fact, putting the lives of the worlds most impoverished people at risk.

When espousing his energy doctrine, Pope Francis would do well to adopt the humility and intellectual honesty of William Alsup, the presiding judge of the U.S. District Court for the Northern District of California. In a case in which oil companies are being sued by Oakland and San Francisco for causing climate harm, Alsup indicated if he is to consider the potential climate harms caused by the use of oil and gas, he must also examine the huge benefits their use has delivered. Alsup succinctl...

Hungary Passes Stop Soros Law "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hungarys parliament has passed a law that could see anyone helping illegal immigrants claim asylum in the country imprisoned. The Stop Soros law is named after Hungarian-born billionaire and open-borders advocate, George Soros.

The law was voted on in the Hungarian parliament on Wednesday, where Viktor Orbans right-wing Fidesz party holds a two-thirds majority. Under the law, individuals who aid migrants, informing them about the asylum procedure or providing financial or property benefit will be liable for a 12-month prison sentence. NGOs working with migrants will need to seek licenses and will see the scope of their work severely restricted.

The law was criticized by Human Rights Watch, who called it the latest salvo in the Hungarian governments war on refugees and those who help them.

Under its terms, aid workers suspected of enabling illegal immigration could be barred from border areas at the authorities discretion. Activists fear that this could be used against watchdog groups and journalists keeping an eye on Hungarian authorities.

The law also grants the authorities permission to deny asylum claims to migrants who arrive from a country other than their own.

We want to use the bills to stop Hungary from becoming a country of immigrants, said Interior Minister Sandor Pinter.

The bill is named after Hungarian-born billionaire and liberal financier George Soros. Soros has been a vocal critic of Orbans government and at the height of the refugee crisis, stated that the EU has to accept at least a million asylum-seekers annually for the foreseeable future. And, to do that, it must share the burden fairly.

Orban has accused Soros of attempting to use mass migration to undermine Europes stability. Soros has antagonized not only us but also England, President Trump and Israel too, Orban said in February. Everywhere he wants to get migration accepted. It wont work. We are not alone and we will fight together and we will succeed.

So far, Orban appears to be winning. Soros Open Society Foundations ended its operations in Hungary this April, citing an increasingly repressive political and legal environment in Hungary.The Hungarian government had previously hinted that Soros NGO could be punished under the new law.

If Soros is found to have engaged in such activity, meaning he organizes illegal immigration, then the rules will apply to him,government spokesman Zoltan Kovacs said in February.

In addition to the Stop Soros law, the parliament also passed a constitutional amendment on Wednesday stating that an alien population cannot be settled in Hungary, a rebuke of the EUs plan to impose reset...

Julian Assange "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

During World War II Cardinal Jozsef Mindszenty was a huge critic of fascism and wound up in prison. In Oct. 1945 he became head of the Church in Hungary and spoke out just as strongly against Communist oppression. He wound up back in prison for eight more years, including long periods of solitary confinement and endured other forms of torture. In 1949 he was sentenced to life in a show trial that generated worldwide condemnation.

Two weeks after the trial began in early 1949, Pope Pius XII (having failed to speak out forcefully against the Third Reich) did summon the courage to condemn what was happening to Mindszenty. Pius excommunicated everyone involved in the Mindszenty trial. Then, addressing a huge crowd on St. Peters Square, he asked, Do you want a Church that remains silent when she should speak a Church that does not condemn the suppression of conscience and does not stand up for the just liberty of the people  a Church that locks herself up within the four walls of her temple in unseemly sycophancy ?

When the Hungarian revolution broke out in 1956, Mindszenty was freed, but only for four days.  When Soviet tanks rolled back into Budapest, he fled to the U.S. embassy and was given immediate asylum by President Eisenhower.

There the Cardinal stayed cooped up for the next 15 years.  Mindszentys mother was permitted to visit him four times a year, and the communist authorities stationed secret police outside the embassy ready to arrest him should he try to leave.  Sound familiar?

Where is the voice of conscience to condemn what is happening to Julian Assange, whose only crime is publishing documents exposing the criminal activities and corruption of governments and other Establishment elites? Decades ago, the U.S. and civilized world had nothing but high praise for the courageous Mindszenty. He became a candidate for sainthood.

And Assange?  He has been confined in the Ecuadorian embassy in London for six years from June 19, 2012the victim of a scurrilous slander campaign and British threats to arrest him, should he ever step outside. The U.S. government has been putting extraordinary pressure on Ecuador to end his asylum and top U.S. officials have made it clear that, as soon as they get their hands on him, they will manufacture a reason to put him on trial and put him in prison. All for spreading unwelcome truth around.

A Suppression of Conscience

One might ask, is unseemly sycophancy at work among the media? The silence of what used to be the noble profession of journalism is deafening. John Pilger one of the few journalists to speak out on Julian Assanges behalf, labels journalists who fail to stand in solidarity with Assange in....

Get Your Blood Moving "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Proper blood circulation is equally as important as gas in a car. When the car has gas, it can circulate throughout the car to ensure it works properly. When the body has adequate blood circulation, this ensures the body functions properly.

There are many reasons for poor circulation such as narrow and stiff arteries, a weak heart, older age, and autoimmune diseases, to name a few.

The good news is that blood circulation can be improved naturally so that your body can function better. But before we explain how to boost circulation, here are some signs to look out for that suggest you have poor blood circulation.

  • Decreased cognitive ability
  • Poor digestive system
  • Weak immune system

If you experience these symptoms, it could be a sign that you have poor blood circulation. You may also notice your hands and feet are often cold as a result. So, the below tips will help you boost your circulation.

Natural Ways to Boost Your Circulation

Iron-rich foods: Iron is necessary for the production of red blood cells, and if you dont have enough iron, then your red blood cell count will be low too. The more red blood cells you have, the more oxygenated blood can travel around your body. Dark leafy greens and red meat are a good source of iron.

Exercise: Exercise improves your hearts function to allow it to properly pump oxygenated blood around your body.

Get a massage: A massage can help boost circulation and stimulate the lymph vessels.

Dont cross your legs: Crossing your legs while sitting prevents proper blood flow.

Eat circulation-boosting foods: Cayenne pepper, ginger, fatty cold-water fish, and dark chocolate are foods that contain the necessary nutrients and antioxidants for proper blood circulation to occur, along with keeping you healthy.

By incorporating these tips into your daily life, you can experience the benefits of improved blood circulation.

Government Eyes Are Watching You "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Were run by the Pentagon, were run by Madison Avenue, were run by television, and as long as we accept those things and dont revolt well have to go along with the stream to the eventual avalanche. As long as we go out and buy stuff, were at their mercy We all live in a little Village. Your Village may be different from other peoples Villages, but we are all prisoners. Patrick McGoohan

First broadcast in America 50 years ago, The Prisonera dystopian television series described as James Bond meets George Orwell filtered through Franz Kafkaconfronted societal themes that are still relevant today: the rise of a police state, the freedom of the individual, round-the-clock surveillance, the corruption of government, totalitarianism, weaponization, group think, mass marketing, and the tendency of humankind to meekly accept their lot in life as a prisoner in a prison of their own making.

Perhaps the best visual debate ever on individuality and freedom, The Prisoner (17 episodes in all) centers around a British secret agent who abruptly resigns only to find himself imprisoned and interrogated in a mysterious, self-contained, cosmopolitan, seemingly tranquil retirement community known only as the Village. The Village is an idyllic setting with parks and green fields, recreational activities and even a butler.

While luxurious and resort-like, the Village is a virtual prison disguised as a seaside paradise: its inhabitants have no true freedom, they cannot leave the Village, they are under constant surveillance, their movements are tracked by surveillance drones, and they are stripped of their individuality and identified only by numbers.

The series protagonist, played by Patrick McGoohan, is Number Six.

Number Two, the Village administrator, acts as an agent for the unseen and all-powerful Number One, whose identity is not revealed until the final episode.

I am not a number. I am a free man, was the mantra chanted on each episode of The Prisoner, which was largely written and directed by McGoohan.

In the opening episode (The Arrival), Number Six meets Number Two, who explains to him that he is in The Village because information stored inside his head has made him too valuable to be allowed to roam free outside.

Throughout the series, Number Six is subjected to interrogation tactics, torture, hallucinogenic drugs, identity theft, mind control, dream manipulation, and various forms of social indoctrination and physical coercion in order to persuade him to comply, give up, give in and subjugate himself to the wi...

A Bad Day for a Bad Guy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Anti-gunners love to pretend that law-abiding gun owners are a threat to humanity. They dismiss any claims of self-defense as cowboy daydreams or wannabe Ramboism. Its not something they see as a real thing.

Meanwhile, a law-abiding gun owner put down a shooter at a Wal-Mart in Washington state.

An armed civilian took down a shooter after at least two people were shot Sunday night at a Washington state Walmart, police said.

Tumwater police said the civilian, described by officers as a good Samaritan, shot and killed the suspect at the scene.

On Monday night, KIRO 7 confirmed the civilian is a pastor and works with the Oakville Fire Department, where he is a lieutenant and an emergency medical technician.

The shooting happened just after 5:30 p.m. at the Walmart Supercenter in Tumwater, about 65 miles south of Seattle.

I heard two bangs. It sounded like gunshots to me, witness Robert Berwick said. I looked down the aisle and saw a person running.

Thats when Berwick ran, too. There was chaos in the parking lot, and he said the shooting suspect tried to carjack another man. Thats when the suspect was shot.

In other words, the good guy put the bad guy down. But if he hadnt, it appears there were plenty of others willing to step in.

Another witness to the shooting, Megan Chadwick, said her husband saw the civilian take down the shooter.

He said he watched him (the shooter) take his last breath, Chadwick said. There were three civilians going after him (the shooter) to shoot him and two of them had their guns up and then the third guy shot him through the window of the car.

So, tell me again how an armed citizenry is a bad thing?

The Best, Affordable Emergency Radios "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A good emergency radio that can be run on a variety of power sources is something you should consider adding to your preps, so you can stay informed and entertained.

In this post, I have attempted to throw a few ideas out there for affordable, best emergency radios to add to your preps.

Criteria For A Good Emergency Radio

Power Consumption

An emergency radio needs to have little demands in terms of power consumption. It is best if there is some way to have an energy source like a hand crank or a solar panel built in. If you have a battery-powered radio then go for one that takes AA or AAA batteries since they are the most common battery sizes and easier to find. It is also easy to store some rechargeables and keep them topped off with a solar battery charger for use in multiple devices.

Bands

Some radios have a NOAA weather band, AM/FM, shortwave, and a public alert band while others may have only one or two of these features. Make sure to read the fine print so you know what bands you are getting for your money. Personally, I dont care about AM frequencies but the other bands may all be quite nice to have in a major emergency or when hacking it out in the bush.

Cost

Like any electronic device you can pay a little or a lot and while there is something to be said for the saying You get what you pay for, sometimes this is not the case. Just look at the cost of cell phones. My $30 Smartphone from Virgin Mobile laid out in the vineyard and went through rain and animals grazing for a month and it still works. Try that with a $600 iPhone and see how that turns out! When it comes to the best emergency radios, you really dont need to spend more than $30-$80 to get a multi-purpose unit.

Size

A speaker can only do so much and the same goes for an antenna.  You may also want to be able to put your radio in a smaller pocket on a pack or you may simply be pressed for space because you are prepping while renting or have to travel a lot. Some radios are not much bigger than what will fit in your hand and they have a lot of function but the speaker is going to be small.

If you think radio might be part of your SHTF entertainment or are going to be sharing with the family then either have a compatible speaker or get a slightly larger radio. Remember that the more powerful the speaker, the more power it is going to consume. For units with solar panels or cranks at least you have a few options for keeping it going.

The Economy is Doing so well -- The Masses are Being Ripped off "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Caring about truth


By pushing fake money onto the financial class, the feds have increased the share of national income made by the One Percent to three times what it was in the 1970s.

The bottom share had to go down. There are 2.3 million people, for example, who earn more than $1 million per year and the top 0.1% earn more than $6 million per year.



But the bottom half of the population has an average income of only $16,000 per year. Seven out of 10 Americans, says USA Today, have less than $1,000 in savings. How is it possible that an economy can be doing so well, when most people in it are worse off?

What are the rich doing to deserve twice the total income share? Are they producing twice as much? Of course not. It is because the system is rigged, against the lower and the middle class. The bottom 90% got 35% of national income as recently as 1980. Now, they only get 25%.

In America, the low unemployment rate is almost a miracle. At 3.5% nationally, it is at a 17-year low. In California and in Hawaii, apparently, not a single person could be found in a recent survey who admitted to being jobless. These cup-half-full figures dont take into account the 102 million American adults of working age who really dont have jobs.

It is said that Inflation remains below 2%, but that is only if you follow the official bogus numbers and dont take into account the rampant inflation in the asset and housing markets. The stock market, too, requires a special caveat emptor. It is no longer a place where you can discover how much companies are worth. It is apparently part of a grand wealth redistribution system, due to the fake money that is dumped into the markets. Assets go up and the people who own them find themselves with a greater share of the nations wealth.

Rebirth of Manchuria plotted as Europe faces summer of discontent

By Benjamin Fulford, White Dragon Society
2018-06-18



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

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

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/European_migrant_crisis

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

Trump Is So Uninformed And Stupid, He Should Just Keep His Mouth Shut "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Ever smuggle phamaceuticals into the U.S. from Canada? They cost much less up there so it's a pretty common practice. Seor Trumpanzee, presumably with the help of the White House's top in-house Nazi, Stephen Miller, insists Canadian are smuggling scuffed up shoes from the U.S. into Canada. Seor T, wrote Daniel Dale for the Toronto Star, "has called Canada 'brutal,' accused Canadas prime minister of being 'weak,' and taken aim at Canadas supply management system for dairy. Now he is calling Canadians shoe smugglers."
In the latest salvo in the presidents multi-front attack on Canadian trade practices, Trump told a story Tuesday about Canadians who cross the U.S. border to buy shoes. The tale left trade experts and apparel industry officials scratching their heads.

Trump launched into it while delivering a rambling speech, focused on illegal immigration, to the National Federation of Independent Businesses.

There was a story two days ago in a major newspaper talking about people living in Canada coming to the United States and smuggling things back into Canada because the tariffs are so massive. The tariffs to get common items back into Canada are so high that they have to smuggle em in, Trump said, apparently referring to an essay in the New York Post by Canadian journalist Isabel Vincent. They buy shoes, then they wear them. They scuff em up. They make them sound old or look old. No, were treated horribly.

There was a grain of truth to the story. Crossing the border to shop in the U.S. and then sneaking an item or two past customs on the way ba...

Autonomous Action Against ICE in Tampa Bay, Florida "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Autonomous Action Against ICE in Tampa Bay, Florida appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following communique was anonymously sent to Its Going Down which we reprint below.

As spontaneous rallies, protests, and even occupations have erupted across the U.S. in response to the Trump Administrations zero tolerance policy, comrades in Tampa Bay, FL organized a series of direct action demonstrations on the evening of June 20, 2018. Impromptu, multi-pronged, and autonomous, these actions can serve as an inspiration in these times of mass paralysis to combat feelings of powerlessness, show our solidarity with undocumented migrants and other marginalized communities, and serve as a rallying cry against fascism wherever it might appear.

Tonights actions included a noise-demo in a temporary autonomous zone where the sound clip of migrant children calling out for their mothers was played for all to hear. ICEs office in historic Ybor City was vandalized with blood to represent the lives of those gunned down at the border. A banner drop happened in downtown Ybors shopping district. Meanwhile, wheat-pasted pro-immigrant and anti-ICE posters appeared across the city, sporting slogans like Stop the American Gestapo and Abolish ICE.

All of these actions occurred fluidly, via limited digital organizing and word-of-mouth. One participant said, Today we knocked on CBPs door. Next time we knock a little longer. After that we kick the doors down. Open the prisons. Smash the bord...

HI ALL

I HAVE LEARNED THAT THOUSANDS OF IMMIGRANT FAMILIES ARE BEING SEPARATED. MOTHERS AND CHILDREN ARE BEING SPLIT. WHAT THE HELL? THAT IS A HUMANITARIAN ASPECT THAT DOES CONCERN US AS IT IS A CRIME IN OUR EYES TO SPLIT FAMILIES UP. ESPECIALLY BABIES BEING WEANED BY MOTHERS THAT ARE TAKEN AWAY TO AN UNKNOWN FOSTER HOME.

THE BANKERS ARE GUILTY OF INDIRECTLY KILLING PEOPLE. WHAT ELSE IS NEW.

LETS TAKE A LOOK AT THIS CLOSER. THE FUNDS COME FROM A TRUST IN EUROPE. THE FUNDS WERE SENT TO THE USA TO BEGIN DISTRIBUTIONS TO THE VARIOUS PROJECT FUNDING DISTRIBUTION POINTS, AND WE ARE ONE OF THEM.

THE GAME THE BANK PLAYS IS TO ASK LEGAL QUESTIONS ON THE CORE COMPLIANCE THAT HAD TO BE DONE IN EUROPE BEFORE THE MONEY COULD BE SENT OVER. NOW YOU WOULD THINK THAT SINCE THAT COMPLIANCE WAS DONE, IT WOULD BE EASY TO GET THE FUNDS OUT ON THIS SIDE, RIGHT? NOT SO. THE BANK DIGS INTO THE ALREADY COMPLETED CORE COMPLIANCE BINDER AND PULLS OUT ONE ISSUE AFTER ANOTHER AND ASKS QUESTIONS ON THE LEGALITY OF THIS OR THAT, AND HOW IT FITS WITH CURRENT REGULATIONS. THESE ARE LEGAL QUESTIONS THAT HAVE TO BE ANSWERED BEFORE THE FUNDS ARE WIRED OUT.

After having triplets and feeling the need to provide her kids with a safer environment, Jacque finally gathered enough courage to walk away. She wanted to be as far away from Clay as possible. And at first, it seemed okay. She had left home, had her kids with her, and had started to rebuild her life. In fact, she eventually met a man whom she felt was the right one for her.

Cryptography is the Bombe: Britain's Enigma-Cracker on Display in New Home "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for BoyceMagooglyMonkey

The UK National Museum of Computing will open its new Bombe gallery this weekend at Bletchley Park in Milton Keynes after a successful crowdfunding campaign to put the WWII code-breaking machines on display.

"We even hope to have a Colossus operator veteran present so that they can exchange notes something they could never do during the war!" said the museum in a statement.

The Bombe was developed as part of Britain's efforts to break Nazi Germany's military ciphers and intercept war plans. Cryptologists used the electro-mechanical machines to speed up their deciphering of Germany's Enigma messages.

"Visitors will be able to see the world-famous Bombe reconstruction in action and learn how it broke Enigma messages and compare it to the acclaimed working Colossus reconstruction and discover how it was the key to breaking Lorenz messages," the museum added.

[...] Saturday, 23 June, the day that the Bombe gallery opens to the public, is also Alan Turing's 106th birthday. Wartime re-enactors "will bring the history alive and give a sense of the wartime atmosphere" on the day, while families are encouraged to enjoy a cream tea and some retro computer games.

Pay Claims and Strikes: Nurses misinformation or truth "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Editors Comment: It was Adams intent to post this earlier, but that did not happen. However, that means a more complete post as readers will see

In every news bulletin, or so it seems, is one or more items about the nurses and their pay claim.

RNZ in both Checkpoint with John Campbell and Morning Report have filed several segments.

Adam is not against wage rises for nurses, nor for other public servants, but some questions and issues do not seem to be addressed, other than perhaps peripherally.

Hamish Rutherford addressed part of the matter with this article where he wrote:-

The timing of strike threats from a growing number of corners of the public sector must be galling for the new Government.

After years of small increases under National, Labour arrives in the Beehive, makes an offer then doubles it and the nurses announce plans to walk off the job for the first time in a generation.

So why now? Why didnt the nurses strike at any point during the last nine years?

In answer to the question,  there was no point neither Key nor English were likely to give in unlike this lot of patsies. In addition, the Coalition has demonstrated it is a profligate bunch of economic illiterates and soft touch. By throwing money at students, raising the minimum wage and then money for Shane Jones slush fund and more money for Winston to buy respect in the Pacific, this bunch of wannabes have signalled they are a bunch of pushovers. Couple that with their leftist rhetoric in opposition we should not be surprised.

The first audio is from Checkpoint a few days ago:-

Enlightenment Now is no different; at one point, Steven Pinker brings forward an argument that 19th century sweatshops were empowering for women.

The benets of industrial employment can go beyond material living standards. For the women who get these jobs, it can be a liberation. In her article The Feminist Side of Sweatshops, Chelsea Follett (the managing editor of HumanProgress) recounts that factory work in the 19th century offered women an escape from the traditional gender roles of farm and village life, and so was held by some men at the time sufficient to damn to infamy the most worthy and virtuous girl. The girls themselves did not always see it that way. A textile mill worker in Lowell, Massachusetts, wrote in 1840:

We are collected to get money, as much of It and as fast as we can. Strange would it be, If in money-loving New England, one of the most lucrative female employments should be rejected because it is toilsome, or because some people are prejudiced against it. Yankee girls have too much independence for that.

Enlightenment Now, pg 98.

This only makes sense if you completely ignore history. Back in the day, most women who worked in these sweatshops were actually girls from poor immigrant families. The paycheque wasnt to empower themselves, it was used to keep the rest of their family alive. The moment they were old enough to marry, theyd be yanked out of the factory and spend the rest of their lives as devoted housewives. If their husbands landed on hard times, they didnt return to the factory but instead did odd female-compatible jobs from home. This churn gave employers no incentive to retain employees, so wages quickly hit rock-bottom. Compounding this, women were usually paid less than men for the same-ish work.

Girls typically began to...

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

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.

When Amanda Harris, the marketing manager for the Atlanta Humane Society, saw the naked little dog for the first time, s...

What Did We Learn From This Week in American Collapse? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Four Lessons From the Battle Between Democracy and Authoritarianism

It can happen here. Id bet that just days ago, you didnt really, truly think that it could happen here. Maybe you entertained the possibility in the darker corners of your mind, now and then. But mostly, once sanity prevailed, you operated under the assumption that things likeconcentration camps for infantswere some kind of gruesome dystopian fantasy. Wrong. Think again. What the last week in American collapse has proven to us beyond a shadow of a doubt is that it can happen here.

But lets be precise. By it, what do we mean? We mean real atrocity. The beginnings, at least, of true crimes against humanity, by the textbook definition. The darkest acts that a society can commit. We mean organized attempts to really genuinely hurt and harm others, in this case helpless little kids, in contravention of international law, domestic law, norms of decency, and civilized values. We mean all the words that we would rather not say. Uniformed men coming for little ones weeping, like monsters in the night.

It can happen here. It did happen here. What does that tell us? We are not above the laws of history. There is nothing remotely different about us from, say Nazi Germany, Soviet Russia, or Maoist China. While its true to say that we stopped short of the bottom of the abysswe came to it in just days, and did so by mere inches, if we know even that much, yet. And we stand right at the precipice still. It wont take more than a nudge to push us over again.

Faster than you think. The second thing we learned is that it happened here much, much faster than anyoneexcept people like me, whove lived through it and studied it before, I supposeexpected. In the blink of an eye. Just like that. Snap. One day, we were worried about the usual business of declineshrinking incomes, rising suicide rates, a general sense of despair. But the next daybang!to our horror, little kids, we learned, were being put into camps.

But that wasnt all. Then we learned that camps were being built for infants. Then we learned that kids were being medically sedated. Then we learned that kids were effectively being harmed, tortured, traumatized, not allowed to hug one another, to be touched, soothed, calmed. Then we learned that kids were being separated from siblings, whom they were only allowed to see once a weekand even then, not touch. You see? Even writing that, I myself have got the order backwards. That is how fast it happenedso fast that it defied comprehension. That it left us stunned, bewildered, and shocked deep down in our....

Urgent! China's Sesame Credit is Controlling Citizens Based on How Obedient & Conformist They Are "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

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.

by Makia Freeman, Guest author,

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.

Composing Your Thoughts - Issue 61: Coordinates "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


1. Unshaven and one bit short

To death and taxes, Benjamin Franklins binary list of lifes certainties, add the expectation that this six-note sequence: 

Will continue with this:

Although we ponder ways to avoid or evade Franklins list of unavoidable events, we generally accept this more benign certainty as immutable. To demonstrate, consider this:

The penultimate note of the tune generates such strong and specific anticipation that you are likely finding it difficult to continue reading without resolving the sequence. That anxious pause is key to composition and musics power. It creates a sense of prophetic certainty that allows musicians to play against expectations by thwarting the expected. The controlled manipulation of certainty and likelihood lurks behind those magical moments in which music has caused a shiver or a tear to fall. By infusing uncertainty or surprise into the mix, musicians literally play on our emotions. As a composer myself, I often lead listeners down musical paths that avoid expected arrivals.

The ubiquitous Shave and a Haircut and its aborted variant provide ideal stimuli to study how the brain responds to violated expectations. Understanding the mechanisms of violated expectations in music elucidates some of the basic functions

The Spacetime of Fine Art - Issue 61: Coordinates "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


This article is part of Nautilus month-long exploration of the science and art of time. Read the introduction here.

I recently came across this diagram of time and space:

It puts the observer at the intersection of two converging cones of light, one representing the past and the other the future. Physicists use the diagram to think about relativity and spacetime, and to decide whether two events or objects can ever have interacted (they cant if theyre not in each others cone).

The diagram also reminds me of the experience of making a painting. I stand at a point in front of the easel. The past meets the present on the tip of my brush, and I glimpse a visual world that seems to be arriving from a future that is just out of sight. Im not unique in this mindset: Painters have been expressing their unique perspectives on the subject of time for as long as handmade pictures have existed.

Florida of the day: Florida woman shoots husband in testicles after he tried to take her air conditioner "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Given the heat and humidity here, a good lawyer might be able to successfully argue that her actions were justified.

Kimberly Dunn of Lake City, Florida put an air conditioner up for sale on Facebook last year. Her husband, whom she was divorcing, and his brother came home to pick it up, and a scuffle ensued. The police report says that she first sat on the unit in order to keep her her and his brother from taking it away, and when her husband tried to remove her from the unit, she attempted to shock him with a pink stun gun.

When the stun gun failed, she took a handgun and shot her now ex-husband in the testicles.

The police say that the brother shouted You shot my brother! and choked Dunn until she blacked out. The ex-husband took the gun and brought it with him as he checked into a nearby hospital, after which Dunn was arrested.

Dunn said that she only meant to scare her husband and that the nut-shot was an accident. She had a court date on June 14th that she missed, and she now faces an additional charge: contempt of court.

In case you were wondering, Lake City is just southeast of the Okefenokee National Wildlife Refuge yes, its a real place! in that part of Florida where the phrase Paddle faster; I hear banjos is a survival strategy.

A Guide to Bill C-75: Understanding the Liberals Crime Bill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post A Guide to Bill C-75: Understanding the Liberals Crime Bill appeared first on It's Going Down.

This analysis of the new C-75 bill in Canada was originally published on North-Shore.Info.

Its the Colton Boushie bill and the #MeToo bill. Its the bill that wants to speed trials up and change how people are impacted by bail while waiting. Its a bill that frees the states hand to treat minor crimes more seriously or to use serious crimes more lightly. Its a bill that talks about having fewer youth in the system but makes it easier to charge them as adults. Its the bill that lets cops avoid cross-examination, sends you to court by video, and formally decriminalizes anal sex. Its a 300 page omnibus bill from the party that spent years promising to never use omnibus bills.

Bill C-75 is currently in committee federally and it aims to make major changes to the justice system across Canada. For a bill of such sweeping scope though, it hasnt been much discussed outside of political and legal spheres. However, the legal system, and the cops and prisons that come with it, are the backdrop of so many choices we make every day, structuring what we think possible in both big ways and small. It affects all of us. And if youre like me and you sometimes find yourself getting dragged through the courts and maybe ending up in jail, theres tons of stuff in here that is immediately and materially relevant to you.

This bill is too vast to properly discuss in a text short enough for people to actually read. I hope this text will be a starting point for more critical conversation about this bill, getting beyond the cherry-picked provisions held up by the Liberals to appeal to certain groups. The cynical garbage from the government (It has more protections for victims of domestic violence! Its a feminist bill!) shouldnt be where our analysis stops. And full disclosure, Im an anarchist and dont consider the justice system legitimate, no matter what laws they pass, and I think a judge is a disgraceful thing to be. But I also think a broad critique like that doesnt exempt us from actually understanding changes like those in Bill C-75, forming an opinion on them, and preparing ourselves to resist them or to endure them.

Broadly, there are three categories of Bill C-75s measures that I want to discuss. Ill get into more detail on each below, trying to highlight distinct ideas with bold type so you can just skip to parts you care about if you want. Im dividing the categories by what motivates these measures rather than by their content, since its interesting what government thinks its job is...

Protests Erupt in Pittsburgh Over Black 17-Year-Old Shot Dead by Police Officer (VIDEOS) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Protests erupted in East Pittsburgh Wednesday after a police officer shot a 17-year-old black male dead late Tuesday night.

The police officer, who is in his 20s was reportedly sworn in just hours before the shooting.

Fox News reported:

Protests erupted outside of the East Pittsburgh Police station over a 17-year-old boy shot and killed by a police officer late Tuesday as he ran from a traffic stop related to a separate shooting.

The gathering for Antwon Rose, which spread across social media with photos and video, saw demonstrators praying, chanting, marching and calling for an end to violence and police brutality, KDKA reported.

From all accounts, he was a generous, hard-working and highly promising student. Affirmations of his generosity of spirit and genuine good heartedness have begun pouring in from all corners of the East Pittsburgh community where he lives, his familys attorney, D. Lee Merritt, said in a statement.

The Allegheny County medical examiners office said Rose, who worked for the wife of a candidate for lieutenant governor, died at the hospital. The brief report released Wednesday did not list a cause of death or say how many times or where the teenager was shot.

Investigators said Wednesday that the car stopped in East Pittsburgh matched the description of a vehicle being sought in a nonfatal shooting in a town a few miles away. An East Pittsburgh officer, who has not been identified, was taking the driver into custody when the two passengers, including 17-year-old Antwon Rose, ran off.

Investigators have said Rose was shot three times. They also said nobody fired a weapon at the officer during the stop and the teen did not have a weapon on him.

CBS Pittsburgh reported police found two weapons inside of the vehicle, but none on Antwon Roses person.

The Problem on the Mexican Border is Mexico "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

June 20, 2018 22:30 ET

President Trump has failed to address the single problem which is creating the Mexican border crisis and the false narrative about the children allegedly being abandoned by their coyotes and parents at the U.S. border:

Mexico.

President Trump has tried to play this the nice way. He has tried to work with the RINOs in the Congress, attempted to treat the situation with kid gloves, hell, he even talked to that phony in Ottawa about security.

However for over 30 years now one nation has obstructed guarantees for American security and to have the gall to call them an ally is a joke.

It is time to start treating Mexico and their citizens the same way they abuse our nation and our system, just as Pancho Villa did over 100 years ago with the indirect blessings of that corrupt Mexican government of that era.

How can President Trump end this imbalance and start reversing the disaster known as American border policy without Congressional approval?

  1. Declare a 90 day notice of intent to withdraw from the Mexican portion of the NAFTA treaty. Advise the Canadian government that the same notification will occur if negotiations do not move forward within the same 90 days, however penalize Mexico for its actions.

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

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.

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.

How High Vibrational People Are More Likely to Be Attacked By Lower Vibrational Energies "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you are someone with a high vibration, you know all too well how frequent attacks from lower level energies can be. They specifically target high vibrational people and even if you cannot understand it, you can feel it.

While we do attract vibrations that are on our level, we are also faced with a lot of conflict that goes unnoticed. The stronger your aura is the more frequently lower leveled people and energies, in general, will want to drain you. They see you and all you have and want it as well whether they know what they are doing or not they are putting a target on your back and doing their best to feed off of you.

These lower level energies work to sabotage all that you have worked for and are not going to think twice about doing so. They are operating from a point of jealousy and fear. They feel like the things you have and the energies radiating from within you are not something they can attain on their own. Again, they could be doing this consciously or not, some are more aware of the things they are doing than others.

You cannot simply ignore these things and expect them to go away. Being aware of them and dealing with them is the only way to move forward and prevent yourself from being drained. You need to be able to transmute the negativity that is being pushed onto you whether you are helping those with lower energies or not.

These attacks you are being faced with are means of training when you really break them down. They are working you through and pushing you to more. Do not think of this as an attempt to break you but more-so as a cry for help from someone who does not know how to go about asking. While you do not have to help all lower level energies it is important to determine which ones are draining you on purpose and which ones are really in need.

While some of this is a bit confusing hopefully it gave you a little more insight.  You can get through this and you can protect your own energies. Meditate and work within, everything will be as it should be in the end.

The System of Cash Bail is a Weapon of Class War "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post The System of Cash Bail is a Weapon of Class War appeared first on It's Going Down.

The following editorial argues that the system of cash bail is aimed at fleecing the poor of massive amounts of money in a system that rarely penalizes the wealthy.

In Humboldt county, located in Northern California, people are calling for a boycott on Sizzler and Subway in Eureka because the business owner bailed out her son accused of sexual child abuse twice in a short period of time. In Humboldt, people are waking up to the fact that wealth-based justice is not justice at all. Cash bail has to be gotten rid of if we want to have a system that even resembles justice. Protest against this scumbag and the unjust system that lets the connected walk and leaves the rest of us to rot and maybe die awaiting trial.

Andrew Cunningham has been brought up on charges of molestation of minor spanning a decade, and possession of child pornography is out on bail again. These crimes are horrendous and should not and will not be ignored by the public. Worse still, the fact is people with means seem to get off light, no matter what is reflected in everyday life and news. Harvey Weinstein who was also charged with decades of sexual abuse walked free quickly after being brought in.

This man walks free while many others have suffered and even died in jail without bail despite not being found guilty of any crime, besides the crime of being poor. Just read a sample of preventable deaths in the Humboldt County jail.

On August 9, 2007, Eureka police officers Justin Winkle, Adam Laird, Gary Whitmer, and 5 others beat an unarmed Martin Cotton II to death. they brought Martin to jail, never giving him medical treatment. Medical care could have saved his life. Martin died in the jail cell of blunt force head trauma. June 23rd, 2017 Colleen Marie Branch, 36, was found dead in Humboldt County jail, she was awaiting trial. Daren Ethan Borges, 42 died in the drunk-tank. The jail is not a safe place to be, and only those who can afford bail get to walk free.

Cash bail hurts poor people as a type of high-interest loan for freedom while the upper class can pay out of pocket or afford 10% fee to walk free despite the nature of the offense. It is a two-tier system. The level of bail and the right to get bail is more correlated to the class and social standing of the accused than whether they pose a threat to the public. In Humboldt, people are waking up to the fact that Wealth-based justice is not justice at all.

Abuses by business owners and their families are not focused on. This is some of the privileges defended by the law and...

IEEE Releases the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for takyon

IEEE, the world's largest technical professional organization dedicated to advancing technology for humanity, today announced the release of the 2017 edition of the International Roadmap for Devices and Systems (IRDS), building upon 15 years of projecting technology needs for evolving the semiconductor and computer industries. The IRDS is an IEEE Standards Association (IEEE-SA) Industry Connections (IC) Program sponsored by the IEEE Rebooting Computing (IEEE RC) Initiative, which has taken a lead in building a comprehensive view of the devices, components, systems, architecture, and software that comprise the global computing ecosystem.

According to Paolo A. Gargini, IEEE and Japan Society of Applied Physics (JSAP) Fellow, and Chairman of IRDS, "Over the past decade the structure and requirements of the electronics industry have evolved well beyond the semiconductor's industry requirements. In line with the changes in the new electronics ecosystem, the 2017 IRDS has integrated system requirements with device requirements and identified some new powerful solutions that will support and revolutionize the electronics industry for the next 15 years."

According to William Tonti, IEEE Fellow and IEEE Future Directions Sr. Director, "The IRDS presents an end-to-end continuum of computing as requirements evolve into multiple platforms."

How Intimidating You Are to Others, According to Your Zodiac Sign "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Have you ever noticed how intimidating you were to others? Maybe youre borderline unapproachable?

When other people try to act like they know something they dont or come on too strong you let them know they are messing up. You are who you are and you will not hide anything about yourself. Are you someone who expresses their emotions regardless of whether they are good or bad?

As you may have noticed everyone is intimidating on some level. Some people are more intimidating than others and no one is intimidating in the same way. Luckily you can find out how you are intimidating the most based off of your zodiac sign.

Aries

You are intimidating because you speak your mind. No one knows what to expect when it comes to your words. You can handle anything that comes your way.

Taurus

Your attitude is intimidating. If anyone is ever around when you are angry their whole opinion about you may change. You are not going to stop no matter how bad things get and you will get your point across.

Gemini

You intimidate those who are shy. You are outgoing and good with words. People who cannot find the words to speak in most cases find you completely unapproachable.

Cancer

You read people and it can be scary depending on whether or not the person know you well. To strangers, your intuitiveness can come off as terrifying.

Leo

You almost never make mistakes and it has those around you walking on eggshells. You are perfect in their eyes and it makes them very intimidated almost all of the time, no matter how nice you are.

Virgo

You are a know-it-all and you pull it off well. You have everyone around you feeling stupid and they are intimidated by your all-knowing-ness.

Libra

You always fight for what you believe in and that can overwhelm others. You will get fierce when you need to be and explode with negative emotions if you hold them in for too long. No one wants to be around when that happens.

Scorpio

You intimidate people because you are intense. You react far too strongly to most things.

Sagittarius

You are unapproachable because of how sporadic you are. You never stay in one place and no one ever gets to know you.

Capricorn

You know your self-worth and most people do not. That is why you are intimidating. You arent full of yourself but sometimes you can come off as s...

Jeff Sessions and St. Pauls Clear and Wise Commands "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Attorney General Jeff Sessions

Attorney General Jeff Sessions is urging obedience to the law requiring the separation of families of undocumented immigrants, separating 11,000 children from their parents so far, 2000 in the last month, by citing scripture. Christian scripture, specifically. He cites a passage from St. Pauls Epistle to the Romans in the New Testament, written probably in Corinth between 52 and 55 CE and addressed to all that be in Rome, beloved of God, called to be saints. Lets look at that text in context, just for fun.

Paul writes of wanting to visit the imperial capital, and to eventually proceed to Spain to preach the gospel there. (There were Jewish synagogues in Spain, and Paul always initially preached in these establishments, where Gentiles were often welcomed and who could be won over to the Christian gospel as Paul understood it. This just shows how ambitious Paul was as a world-traveler, and how important his role was in spreading the emerging cult of Jesus centered in Judea throughout the eastern Mediterranean, establishing a world religion.)

Part of his message, as any serious Christian knows, is that the old law (the Laws of Moses in the Old Testament, including the many dietary laws) no longer applies, even to Jews; the Christian redeemed by Christs sacrifice need only have faith to be united with God in Heaven. In that sense the Christian enjoys freedom from the law (Romans 7:1-6).

On the other hand, the nascent Christian movement was under attack by civil authorities as Paul wrote. (Paul himself may have perished in Neros persecution in 64.) Some members of the community were inviting unwanted attention by law-breaking or provoking authorities. Paul was writing to believers in the city where Roman law was authored, where the Senate met; the city that (not that he could anticipate it)....

The Limits of Neuroplasticity in the Brain "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New research shows that the brains neuroplasticity isnt as flexible as previously thought.

One of the brains mysteries is how exactly it reorganizes new #information as you learn new tasks. The standard to date was to test how neurons learned new behavior one #neuron at a time.

Carnegie Mellon University and the University of Pittsburgh decided to try a different approach. They looked at the population of neurons to see how they worked together while #learning a new behavior. Studying the intracortical population activity in the primary motor cortex of rhesus macaques during short-term learning in a braincomputer interface (BCI) task, they were able to study the reorganization of population during learning.

Their new research indicates that when the brain learns a new activity that it is less flexible than previously thought. The researchers were able to draw strong hypothesis about neural reorganization during learning by using BCI. Through the use of BCI the mapping between #neural activity and learning is completely known

In this experimental paradigm, were able to track all of the neurons that can lead to behavioral improvements and look at how they all change simultaneously, says Steve Chase, an associate professor of biomedical engineering at Carnegie Mellon and the Center for the Neural Basis of Cognition.

When we do that, what we see is a really constrained set of changes that happen, and it leads to this suboptimal improvement of performance. And so, that implies that there are limits that constrain how flexible your brain is, at least on these short time scales.

It is often challenging to learn new tasks quickly that require a high level of proficiency. Neural plasticity is even more constrained than previously thought as results of this research indicate.

None of us predicted this outcome, says Matthew Golub, a postdoctoral researcher in electrical and computer engineering at Carnegie Mellon. Learning is far more limited on the scale of a few hours than any of us were expecting when we started this. We were all surprised that the brain wasnt able to choose the best strategy possible.

The research was done in collaboration with the Center for Neural Basis of Cognition, a cro...

Learn Something About Phase Locked Loops "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The phase locked loop, or PLL, is a real workhorse of circuit design. It is a classic feedback loop where the phase of an oscillator is locked to the phase of a reference signal using an error signal in the same basic way that perhaps a controller would hold a temperature or flow rate in a physical system. That is, a big error will induce a big change and little errors induce little changes until the output is just right. [The Offset Volt] has a few videos on PLLs that will help you understand their basic operation, how they can multiply frequencies (paradoxically, by dividing), and even demodulate FM radio signals. You can see the videos below.

The clever part of a PLL can be found in how it looks at the phase of two signals. For signals to be totally in phase, they must be at the same frequency and also must ebb and peak at the same point. It should be clear that if the frequency isnt the same the ebbs and peaks cant line up for any length of time. By detecting how much the signals dont line up, an error voltage can be generated. That error voltage is used to adjust the output oscillator so that it matches the reference oscillator.

Of course, it wouldnt be very interesting if the output frequency had to be the same as the reference frequency. The clever trick comes by dividing the output frequency. For example, a 100 MHz crystal oscillator is difficult to design. But taking a voltage-controlled oscillator at 100 MHz (nominal) and dividing its output by 100 will give you a signal you can lock to a 1 MHz crystal oscillator which is, of course, trivial to build.

The real detail lies in the phase comparison and the loop filtering, something that will make more sense once you have watched the videos.

Based on video views, [The Offset Volt] may be the best YouTube channel people arent watching much. The videos are clear an easy to understand! Hes even worked in a reference to a self-sealing stem bolt, so we cant help but be impressed with that.

Our resident video star [Bil Herd] did a talk on PLLs a good while back. If youd rather read and want to see how a PLL works in software, weve talked about that, too.

WILL THEY WONDER WHY? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"




Newly confirmed US Sec State, Mike Pompeo has acted after a one year notice to reform or we are gone, from the totally corrupt anti Semitic and utterly biased UN Human Rights Council.

A bunch of ideologues who have managed to lambaste the one single functioning democracy in the Middle East, Israel, 78 times, more than all other states investigated when  totaled since the sinecure was established in 2004

The Charade of 47 countries that include currently such pillars of freedom and universal rights for all their citizens; Saudi Arabia, Cuba, Venezuela, Somalia, China, South Africa amidst a plethora of states who are basically nonentities or have a serious deficit in their notions around the rights for humans of any status within their jurisdiction, were given the farewell salute from  US UN Ambassador Nikki Haley.

What a shame, nay eternal shame, no other nation member of the increasingly self destructing monument to inertia, has the cojones to even say about time.

There were warnings aplenty so it was not a moment of chagrin over the interference in US Domestic Immigration affairs, this was a well signalled statement that the affront to decency and fairness was ended as regards participation for The US.

I will say well past about time.
However the locusts feeding at the food stores of do goodism will not see why it occurred this way as they travel merrily on the path to ignorance paved with arrogance and smugness, fiddling while Rome burns.

But our measuring instruments - the strongest of which is NASA's Hubble Space Telescope - aren't powerful enough to detect light from furthest points of the universe.

The late Shah's son wants a democratic revolution in Iran "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From exile, Reza Pahlavi supports a movement to retake his homeland. But he says he doesn't want a throne. In another era, Reza Pahlavi, the son of the last shah of Iran, would be an ideal candidate to lead an Iranian government in exile. After all, the CIA helped his father retain power in the 1953 coup against the elected prime minister, Mohammed Mossadegh. Now, as Iran is reeling, why wouldn't the U.S. get the old band back together? There are two reasons. President Donald Trump himself says his goal is not to change Iran's regime, but to change its behavior. The other more important reason is that Pahlavi himself is not interested in the gig. "My father was king, and I was the crown prince," he told me in an interview this month. "I have always said to my compatriots: It's not the form that matters, it's the content; I believe Iran must be a secular, parliamentary democracy. The final form has to be decided by the people." In the 1980s, Pahlavi as a young man had a relationship with the CIA, according to reporting at the time from the Washington Post's Bob Woodward. But even then, the Reagan administration was not trying to change the new regime in Iran; it was trying to negotiate with it. As the Iran-Contra affair showed, Reagan's advisers were selling the mullahs Israeli weapons to free hostages in Lebanon.

CHEST-THUMPING TRUMP IS MOTIVATING HIS BASE "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

These are the most depressing poll results I've seen in a while, even though the Democrats seem to be doing reasonably well in the poll:

A Pew Research Center survey released Wednesday shows far greater engagement in this years elections among both Democrats and Republicans than in the 2014 midterms. The Democratic wave is building: Voters who say they intend to support the Democratic candidate in their congressional district are far more enthusiastic than in the two midterm elections under President Barack Obama theyre even more enthusiastic than at this point in the Democratic landslide year of 2006.

But this year's Democratic wave may be crashing against a well-fortified GOP wall. Enthusiasm among Republicans about voting is higher now than before almost every midterm election going back to 1994 the only exception was June 2010, just before a GOP wave netted the party 63 seats and control of the House of Representatives.

... Democrats are slightly more enthusiastic than Republicans: 55 percent of voters who say they intend to vote for the Democratic candidate in their district say they are more enthusiastic than usual, compared with 50 percent of Republican voters.

But the gap between supporters of each party is smaller than in recent elections. In June 2006, 47 percent of Democratic voters expressed enthusiasm, compared with 30 percent of Republican voters. In June 2010, voters backing Republicans were 13 percentage points higher on this question than those supporting Democrats.

... Despite the focus on Trump and his low approval ratings just 40 percent among Americans in the new Pew survey the poll suggests he may not be the drag on his party that Obama was in 2010, or George W. Bush was in 2006.

More than one-quarter of voters, 26 percent, say they think of their vote for Congress as a vote for Trump greater than for any president since Bush in the 2002 midterms....
This is just one poll, and it was conducted before family separation became the biggest story in America -- but it's a poll from Pew, a firm that does a good, thorough job. If it's accurate, it means that Donald Trump's vengefulness, chest-thumping, trash-talking, and gleeful hostility toward decency and norms are all working electorally, even if they're not working in any other way. Robert Mueller isn't going away, the stock market is reacting to Trump's trade war with anxiety, and the public was appalled by family separation. But if all Trump really cares about is winning the midterms, it may not matter whether he's winning on any other front -- he's successfully rallying the b...

California judge rules Twitter CAN be sued for falsely advertising free speech "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A California judge has ruled that Twitter's policy of banning users "at any time, for any reason or for no reason" may constitute an "unconscionable contract", and that a lawsuit against the company brought by self-described "white advocate" Jared Taylor may proceed on that basis. The judge rejected Twitter's motion to dismiss the lawsuit from Taylor, who was banned by the platform in December last year. In particular, Twitter's argument that it has a first amendment right to ban whoever it likes from its platform, for whatever reason was rejected. The judge ruled that Twitter's belief that it had a right to ban users "at any time, for any reason, or no reason" could be a legally unconscionable policy on the company's part. The judge also ruled that Twitter could be sued on the basis of misleading its users, due to the platform's promise - frequently expressed, frequently violated - not to ban accounts on the basis of viewpoint or political affiliation. "This ruling has massive implications for the platform going forward," said Noah Peters, Jared Taylor's lawyer. "this is the first time that a social media company's argument that it can censor user speech has been rejected by a court."

"A Look to the Heavens" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Bright spiral galaxy NGC 3169 appears to be unraveling in this cosmic scene, played out some 70 million light-years away just below bright star Regulus toward the faint constellation Sextans. Its beautiful spiral arms are distorted into sweeping tidal tails as NGC 3169 (left) and neighboring NGC 3166 interact gravitationally, a common fate even for bright galaxies in the local universe. In fact, drawn out stellar arcs and plumes, indications of gravitational interactions, seem rampant in the deep and colorful galaxy group photo.

The picture spans 20 arc minutes, or about 400,000 light-years at the group's estimated distance, and includes smaller, dimmer NGC 3165 at the right. NGC 3169 is also known to shine across the spectrum from radio to X-rays, harboring an active galactic nucleus that is likely the site of a supermassive black hole.

Two record-breaking shearers are working their way into land ownership in Hawkes Bay. Kate Taylor reports.

What does a champion shearer do on his days off? His own shearing.

Rowland (Rowly) and Ingrid Smith bought their 28ha block at Maraekakaho in Hawkes Bay four and a half years ago. Hes still shearing full time but is starting a seasonal contracting business and the couple hope to buy more land in the future.

Their first few years as landowners saw all their spare cash put back into development including fencing and a new shearing shed.

Trump backs down on separating families "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

US First Lady Melania Trump attends a meeting with US President Donald J. Trump. EPA/Chris Kleponis / POOL.

WASHINGTON, RAW

US President Donald Trump has backed down and abandoned his policy of separating immigrant children from their parents on the US-Mexico border, after images of youngsters in cages sparked outrage at home and abroad.

Trump signed an executive order requiring that immigrant families be detained together when they are caught entering the country illegally for as long as their criminal proceedings take.

While the change may end a policy that drew a rebuke from Pope Francis and everyone else from human rights advocates to business leaders, it may also mean immigrant children remain in custody indefinitely.

The Trump administration still faces legal challenges because of a court order that caps how long immigration authorities may detain minors, and trigger fresh criticism of Trumps hardline immigration policies, which were central to his 2016 election campaign and now his presidency.

A Justice Department official was unable to clarify whether family separations would end immediately or when and how families now separated would be reunited.

The Trump order, an unusual reversal by him, moves parents with children to the front of the line for immigration proceedings but it does not end a 10-week-old zero tolerance policy that calls for prosecution of immigrants crossing the border illegally under the countrys criminal entry statute.

Its about keeping families together while at the same time making sure that we have a very powerful, very strong border, Trump said as he signed the order in a hastily arranged Oval Office gathering.

Video footage of children sitting in cages and an audiotape of wailing children had sparked anger as the images were broadcast worldwide.

Governments from Central America and Mexico welcomed Trumps decision on Wednesday, but said they would remain vigilant to ensure the rights of their citizens were respected.

THE US HAS BEEN IN A TRADE WAR ALMOST MY WHOLE LIFE. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



F D Roosevelt took the US into WW2 after the Japanese attacked Pearl Harbour and by the end of that conflict the US had the worlds leading economy by any measure.

Presiding over a world almost totally destroyed economically, The Marshall Plan named after the Chief of  Defence staff under Roosevelt who went on to become the post war US  Secretary of State,  was instituted to restore the free economies of the wartorn nations as a bulwark against communism under the leadership of Stalin the USSR dictator as the "Iron Curtain" descended.

From then on the US was every country's Benevolent Grandad funding states of all colours and ending up on the wrong side of any balance of payments.
Trump for all his faults wants that fact of history redressed, while the Chicoms and a resurgent Putin of Russia are happy to see an ever more economically vulnerable US "White Anted".
The list of nations and political groupings who seem content to watch with considerable disinterest as the economic wars continue. Canada, Europe Japan the UK, and even India need to take a deep breath as waiting for the wolf to eat others hoping to be spared until last wont work, they will still be eaten eventually.
They need to show some solidarity with what Trump is attempting before it is too late.

It is bloody scary as history records many instances of trade wars ending badly, particularly for democracies where the people fail to grasp what is really happening while totalitarian or historical monarchies with unrestrained power continue to take advantage. Yes Trump is in a high stakes game but any delaying in taking a stand is only going to get harder.
China, under its still dominant one party state system wont bat an eyelid as its people's standards of living plunge,  as it will merely be regarded as collateral damage  while the democratic foundations of the US will come under serious political pressure in just over two years time.
The North Korean state is a glaring example of what a dictatorship can inflict on its people, the jury is still out as to whether Trump convinced Kim jong-un  there is a better way if he will only see.
 If Rocket man can be convinced, the people of the north might well regard him with genuine affection for making North Korea great, without the need for a massive Military to enforce such adulation.

You see for decades I never thought I would live to see Mr Gorbachev tear down that wall.
Trump's wall is a direct opposite to Honecker's effort that was built to keep his oppressed people from escaping, Trump's is to prevent the US being overwhelmed.

Haters will hate I guess.

"Eternal Enemies..." "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"Liberty and democracy are eternal enemies, and every one knows it who has ever given any sober reflection to the matter. A democratic state may profess to venerate the name, and even pass laws making it officially sacred, but it simply cannot tolerate the thing. In order to keep any coherence in the governmental process, to prevent the wildest anarchy in thought and act, the government must put limits upon the free play of opinion. In part, it can reach that end by mere propaganda, by the bald force of its authority - that is, by making certain doctrines officially infamous. But in part it must resort to force, i.e., to law. One of the main purposes of laws in a democratic society is to put burdens upon intelligence and reduce it to impotence. Ostensibly, their aim is to penalize anti-social acts; actually their aim is to penalize heretical opinions.
At least ninety-five Americans out of every 100 believe that this process is honest and even laudable; it is practically impossible to convince them that there is anything evil in it. In other words, they cannot grasp the concept of liberty. Always they condition it with the doctrine that the state, i.e., the majority, has a sort of right of eminent domain in acts, and even in ideas - that it is perfectly free, whenever it is so disposed, to forbid a man to say what he honestly believes. Whenever his notions show signs of becoming "dangerous," ie, of being heard and attended to, it exercises that prerogative. And the overwhelming majority of citizens believe in supporting it in the outrage. Including especially the Liberals, who pretend - and often quite honestly believe - that they are hot for liberty. They never really are. Deep down in their hearts they know, as good democrats, that liberty would be fatal to democracy - that a government based upon shifting and irrational opinion must keep it within bounds or run a constant risk of disaster.

THREE principal landowner groups of the Wafi-Golpu project in Morobe Province have clarified their position over the controversy surrounding a new association claiming to represent the interest of the project landowners.

The leaders of Hengambu Landowners Association, Yanta Development Association, and Babuaf Landowners Association met last week to address the issue.

Court coal mine decision reveals failure on climate change "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Stock images of coal in the Hunter Valley region, Tuesday, July. 15, 2014. AAP Image/Nikki Short.

A Court decision has exposed serious flaws in NSW planning laws. The Courts finding is that the States planning laws do not require decision makers to consider the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework and Australias status as a signatory to the Paris Agreement when considering the approval of coal mining projects in NSW.

The Land and Environment Court has upheld the NSW Planning Assessment Commission (PAC) decision to approve the extension to Wilpinjong open-cut coal mine near Wollar in the Hunter Valley, despite a challenge on climate change grounds from the Wollar Progress Association, represented by the Environmental Defenders Office (EDONSW).

EDO NSW argued in a February 2018 hearing that the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework and the Commonwealth Governments commitment to the Paris Agreement were relevant policies that the PAC was required but failed to have regard to when considering the downstream greenhouse gas emissions from the burning of coal from Wilpinjong, a substantial proportion of which will be burnt at Bayswater Power Station in NSW.

In light of the finding, EDO NSW CEO David Morris emphasised the need for reform:

This is certainly not the judgement that we, or our clients, wanted. But perhaps its the judgement we needed. We now know that aspirational policy statements, like those contained in the NSW Climate Change Policy Framework, fail to have any meaningful application to NSW mine approvals. Its these approvals and the coal which is consequently mined and burned that represent NSWs greatest contribution to global climate change. The Government can no longer claim, or proceed under the illusion, that their policies on climate change have an on-ground effect. They dont the Courts judgement shows they are merely words that do not translate to action.

This decision adds weight to the need for law reform to make climate change a critical factor in determinations about projects which will contribute to it. This...

12 Ways to Make Him Miss You "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you have ever wanted to leave a lasting impression on someone, then you are not alone. We all get like this from time to time.

While making someone miss you might sound hard it is not necessarily a struggle at all if you know what you are doing. Regardless of how long youve been with someone, if you do the things listed below you will be on his mind more than ever. Sometimes even the smallest things make the biggest difference.

12 Ways to Make Him Miss You:

1. Dont be afraid to give him space.

We all need space and sometimes it is more than enough to show us what we really care about. Giving him space when he needs it is important. You shouldnt be locking him away or forcing him to do things he doesnt want to do.

2. Dont be afraid to take things slow.

Sometimes taking things slow is a good thing. No, you shouldnt be going at snail speed but you also shouldnt be telling him your whole life story on the first date. There needs to be a good middle ground.

3. Wear or do something unique.

Doing unique things with him will help him be able to remember you more vividly. While I dont mean for you to go crazy I do mean for you to step out of your comfort zone. Really take the time to put yourself out there.

4. Dont reply to every single text immediately.

Make him wait sometimes. Dont reply quickly to every single text. Sometimes making him wait a few minutes can make all the difference.

5. Do something with him that he would really enjoy.

Figure out what he likes and make an effort to do something he enjoys with him. This will make him feel great and you will get to see him in his truest form. It is an all-around win-win situation.

6. Find a scent that will remind him of you.

Find a good smelling perfume that most people dont use and use it. Make him associate that smell with you. Then, whenever he smells it he will think of you.

7. Dont open up too quickly.

Dont be one to let him in right off the bat. Make him work for it, if he wants to get to know you he will be willing to wait. This is something that adds a lot of mystery to the situation.

8. Be happy when you are happy.

If you arent happy, dont pretend to be. Only be happy when you are happy. If you really like spending time with him it will show and he will notice.

9. Spend time with your friends.......

15 Genius Methods Proven to Reduce Hunger "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One of the worst things about dieting is the constant hunger pangs and cravings. Its as if as soon as your body knows that something is off-limits, temptation kicks in and before you know it youre back to square one again.

But when those unhealthy (but filling) carbs are off limits, what can you do to stay full and keep on track with your weight loss goals? Thats where these healthy appetite suppressants come in. Incorporating some satisfying, healthy snacks along with learning to utilize a few simple hunger crushing tricks can make reaching your target weight much more manageable even at 4 pm when that home baked cheesecake is calling your name.

Healthy appetite suppressants dont just have to be foods theres a host of clever tips that can trick your mind (and stomach) into thinking its full. From the importance of exercise to how often you should really eat per day, find out how to stay on track with your weight loss goals. Weve even got a supplement that can help you burn fat more easily keeping trim has never been simpler.

Theres no need to feel deprived and hungry when watching your weight. With the help of these healthy appetite suppressants, you can watch your waistline without feeling unsatisfied.

Stop your tummy rumbling while still losing weight with these 15 healthy ways to suppress your appetite:

Dont shun good fats.

Nuts like almonds along with olive oil, good quality peanut butter, and avocado are packed with unsaturated, good fat which helps to regulate appetite by sending full signals to the brain. Go easy on them though, an oatcake with a little peanut butter or a handful of nuts at 11 am is just enough to keep that diet on track.

Exercise!

We all know that exercise boosts our metabolism so we carry on burning calories long after that gym session, but new studies suggest it also helps control how much we eat. The body apparently releases a hormone during aerobic exercise which stops our brain craving food for up to two hours afterward.

Add a little spice.

Dont fall victim to fad A-list diets like only eating maple syrup! But adding a little spice to your dinner is scientifically proven to help with over-eating. Sprinkle on....

Prepare Yourselves, Mars (the Planet of Action) Is About to Go Into Retrograde "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mars will be going retrograde very soon and for those of us who are already aware, we know how interesting this is going to be. Mars retrograde begins on the 26th of this month and will end on August 27th so yes, Mars will be retrograding for quite awhile.

This retrograde will be in Aquarius partnering the power of this planet with the power of independence and so much more. Because Venus will be opposite Mars, we may notice an increase in sexual tension as well. This could bring forth relationship issues if your significant other already has wandering eyes or something of the sort. That being said, we should not obsess over it, we cannot change what will come from this retrograde.

This retrograde will be quite challenging for most of us but will benefit us all. During this time it is important to take the time to check on yourself and those around you. Make sure you keep things in order and go the extra mile as needed.

You may feel much more impatient as this retrograde commences. Do not be afraid to sit back and relax when you feel you need to. While these energies will be intense they should not be overwhelming you. If possible avoid initiating new projects and rework where you want the energies before you to go.

Mars represents passion and progress as it is moving in this manner or appearing to move in this manner you are given a chance to catch up and make changes to your life that will push you further. You might feel like seeking more information or you might become quite angry, this depends on where you are within.

While there will be no urgency during this retrograde, things will feel a little disconnected. As most retrogrades do, this one also invites us to reflect and reconsider our paths in life. Change will be abundant but it wont be unnoticed. If you have been struggling with being direct now is your time to sort things out and find a sense of strength.

There is a lot we can expect from this retrograde and to be honest we should all be excited. Chances are you are feeling the energies surrounding it building even now.

The most exciting archaeology I've done in the past three or four years has finally made it through all the layers of National Park Service review and analysis and so on and been released to the public: a burial pit and limb pit on the Bull Run/Manassas battlefield. The pit contained two nearly complete skeletons, both probably Union soldiers, and seven amputated legs.

This tickled me:
Scientists have uncovered a pit of human bones at a Civil War battlefield in Virginia. The remains are the amputated limbs of wounded Union soldiers.
Yes! I'm a real scientist now! NPR says so! Because it wasn't anyone mentioned in these news stories who actually found this pit and figured out what was going on, it was my crew. Along with a couple of people from the Park Service who also remain unmentioned in these stories.

If you read between the lines of the news, you can see that the Park Service is still being extremely cautious about this story. They had to say something, because they have handed the skeletons over to the Army for burial at Arlington, but they have said as little as possible. So I guess I shouldn't say very much, and all my wonderful photographs of the dig are still embargoed. So for now, only images that I pulled from news sites. One day maybe I'll be able to post the good stuff.

California Names New Elementary School After Illegal Alien Activist "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Illegal alien and immigrants rights activist Jose Antonio Vargas is getting a new elementary school named after him in California (of course). Vargas has recently made headlines after propagating a fake picture depicting an immigrant child in a cage, except the picture isnt from the one of the immigrant child centers, it was from a protest, where protesters were facetiously acting out what it is like for a kid to be in a cage. The move was so low even the very fake CNN set the record straight.

But back to the new school. SF Gate reports:

In a historic decision, a new public elementary school in Mountain View will be named after an undocumented immigrant Jose Antonio Vargas, an award-winning journalist, documentary filmmaker and activist.

The Mountain View Whisman School District board voted to name the new school after Vargas at its meeting Thursday following recent immigration enforcement decisions made by the Trump administration.

In just the past few weeks, thousands of immigrant children have been separated from their families in domestic raids and at the border, and this week U.S. Attorney General Jeff Sessions announced that asylum protections will no longer be offered to victims of domestic violence and gang violence.

IBM Reduces Neural Network Energy Consumption Using Analog Memory and Non-Von Neumann Architecture "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

IBM researchers use analog memory to train deep neural networks faster and more efficiently

Deep neural networks normally require fast, powerful graphical processing unit (GPU) hardware accelerators to support the needed high speed and computational accuracy such as the GPU devices used in the just-announced Summit supercomputer. But GPUs are highly energy-intensive, making their use expensive and limiting their future growth, the researchers explain in a recent paper published in Nature.

Instead, the IBM researchers used large arrays of non-volatile analog memory devices (which use continuously variable signals rather than binary 0s and 1s) to perform computations. Those arrays allowed the researchers to create, in hardware, the same scale and precision of AI calculations that are achieved by more energy-intensive systems in software, but running hundreds of times faster and at hundreds of times lower power without sacrificing the ability to create deep learning systems.

The trick was to replace conventional von Neumann architecture, which is "constrained by the time and energy spent moving data back and forth between the memory and the processor (the 'von Neumann bottleneck')," the researchers explain in the paper. "By contrast, in a non-von Neumann scheme, computing is done at the location of the data [in memory], with the strengths of the synaptic connections (the 'weights') stored and adjusted directly in memory.

President Trump traveled to Duluth, Minnesota Wednesday to hold a rally.
The crowd was so massive they had to move to AMSOIL Arena to accommodate more people. The rally was previously planned for the DECC Arena, reported Fox News.

President Trump is expected to endorse House candidate Peter Stauber for the states 8th district.

President Trump taunted a protester as he was forcibly removed from the rally.

So we have a single protester. Goodbye darling, Trump said as the crowd booed.

Hes going home to his mom. Say hello to mommy, President Trump said as the crowd erupted into cheers.

The President then predicted the fake news will report tomorrow that there was a massive protest at the Trump rally even though it was a single protester.

VIDEO:

President Trump continued to taunt the protester.

Get him outta here! Out! demanded Trump.

The protester had long hair so the President said, Was that a man or a woman? Because he needs a haircut more than I do

Watch the unhinged protester get tossed out of the rally:

TPP-11 could harm software licensing, says Open Source Industry Australia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

June 21, 2018: Open Source Industry Australia (OSIA) has warned in a Techdirt article that the TPP-11 chapter on e-commerce may damage or destroy the free software licensing sector. OSIA is worried about Article 14.17 of the TPP-11 agreement, which provides that No Party shall require the transfer of, or access to, source code of software owned by a person of another Party, as a condition for the import, distribution, sale or use of such software, or of products containing such software, in its territory.

In its submission to the Senate Standing Committee on Foreign Affairs, Defence and Trade, OSIA wrote:

Article 14.17 of CPTPP [TPP-11] prohibits requirements for transfer or access to the source code of computer software. Whilst it does contain some exceptions, those are very narrow and appear rather carelessly worded in places. The exception that has OSIA up in arms covers "the inclusion of terms and conditions related to the provision of source code in commercially negotiated contracts". If Australia ratifies CPTPP, much will turn on whether the Courts interpret the term "commercially negotiated contracts" as including FOSS licences all the time, some of the time or none of the time.

If the Australian courts rule that open source licenses are not "commercially negotiated contracts", those licences will no longer be enforceable in Australia, and free software as we know it will probably no longer exist there. Even if the courts rule that free software licenses are indeed "commercially negotiated contracts", there is another problem, OSIA said:

The wording of Art. 14.17 makes it unclear whether authors could still seek injunctions to enforce compliance with licence terms requiring transfer of source code in cases where their copyright has been infringed.

Without the ability to enforce compliance through the use of injunctions, open source licenses would once again be pointless. Although OSIA is concerned about free software in Australia, the same logic would apply to any TPP-11 country. It would also impact other nations if they joined the TPP-11 later. In other words, the impact of this section on open source globally could be significant.

OSIA says that the problematic clauses grew out of concerns that nations like ...

Sir Mekere slams O'Neill's China junket "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Member for Moresby Northwest Sir Mekere Morauta has criticised Prime Minister Peter ONeill and delegation who traveled to China yesterday.

Look at the members of the delegation. Is the Prime Minister going to China to sell off our petroleum, gas, fisheries and forestry resources, Ok Tedi, and Bank South Pacific?

It has been reported that the trip will cost almost K7 million at a time when hospitals and health centres are short of medicine; schools, even in Port Moresby, are closing; small businesses are waiting to be paid their bills by the government and retired public servants are waiting for their superannuation entitlements, some dying before their entitlements have been paid.

The trip also comes at a time when the Prime Ministers own province and Hela are in turmoil.

For the first time in the nations history an aeroplane has been hijacked and burned, and civil unrest continues, he said.

Sir Mekere said Mr ONeill should take personal responsibility for the chaos in the Southern Highlands, which stems from the chaos of last years national election.

Put the ongoing landowner issues stemming from his government not paying monies due from the LNG project, the governments refusal to deal with the proliferation of weapons throughout the country, and the recent earthquake on top of the election issues and you have a situation packed with dynamite.

Instead of facing the problems in his own backyard and dealing with the causes of the problems, the Prime Minister runs to China on the biggest begging trip ever 93 people in the delegation, including 50 Chinese, according to the official list.

What on earth are they all going for? To negotiate our becoming a colony of China? Is PM leading a delegation of Papua New Guineans or a delegation of Chinese?, he said.

Subversive in Suburbia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I have been so very slack in checking in and reading others' blogs I feel I owe you an apology.
So let's talk about poo.
Not my poo, or your poo (although we can discuss your poo if you really feel you need to share) but my furbabies poo.
My life is boring.
It consists of rolling out of bed (and I do literally roll off my lonely and virtuous chaise lounge IF my back allows it) to do.....sweet Fanny Adams.
The first job of the day is to throw enough medication down my gullet to drown out the anxiety, chronic back pain et el, then do Pooper Scooper duty.
Or, as I call it, "Landmine Duty".
Collect the furbabies contributions to the environment.
Someone, somewhere must have told Treacle that it was a game of hide & seek, to which she promised,
"Challenge accepted."
She deposits her little treats in 3 blobs; 2 together and 1 apart so I have to carefully bend down (pyjama-ed arse in the air, such a vision of loveliness for the neighbours!) and scan in a radius for the lone poo, hoping like hell I'm not standing on it.
Pip, on the other hand, produces a lovely art installation all in one pile.
Leo aka Fluff Bum the cat is another matter.
He insists that the bathroom is his bedroom and Goddess forbid that any damn human has a shower when he wishes to do the dirty.
Cos he hates an audience.
Damn Diva.
I never thought I could describe a cat "angrily" pooping but yesterday, while I so thoughtlessly had a shower, he was nagging at me to hurry up (shades of Bill Steamshovel from Mr Squiggle for us oldies) before he began shooting poo pellets like bullets with a 100 mile Care Bear Stare of Doom on his face.
You think Grumpy Cat looks grumpy?
Nup, Leo could give Julie Bishop a run for her money AND make her cry.
And then, after all this jocularity, I park my arse on the couch in front of the idiot box and crochet for remote Indigenous communities.
There are only so much rubbish TV and crochet projects that can keep me from being besieged by ennui.
I need to get out of my own head and start giving back.
So, I have started a Sharing Table in my driveway, along the lines of the Food Is Free project.
Currently we are missing the actual table (small detail, hubby's working on one we saved from Hard Rubbish) but there are baskets filled with our home grown mandarins, tangelos and limes out the front with signs for peeps to help themselves, even supplied with those horrid single use shopping bags for them to put the fruit in.
I was going to include a Street Library but once the table is up I'll pro...

The Cancer Symptoms Most Women Are Likely to Ignore "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Cancer is something extremely common in this day and age and yet aside from random lumps, most people dont know the signs or symptoms associated with it. I cannot think of a single person who has not been impacted by cancer in one way or another and to be honest, it is shocking.

According to Cancer.Gov, at least 1,735,350 new cases will be diagnosed this year and at least 600,000 people will lose their lives to the disease. While the most common cancers are breast, lung, and prostate we can basically get cancer anywhere.

Knowing the signs and symptoms associated with cancer and spotting it as soon as possible will make a huge difference for you and those who care for you. Below I am going to go over some of the things you should be paying attention to. Even some of the most insignificant thing can turn out to be a huge red flag.

Commonly Ignored Cancer Signs and Symptoms:

1. Unexplained Weight Loss

Weight loss and cancer seem to go hand in hand. If you randomly lose ten pounds for no reason you might want to have it looked into. This happens most often with pancreatic or stomach cancers.

2. Bowel Habit Changes

This could come in the form of any change diarrhea, constipation, or even just a change in the size of your stool. Colon cancer is a lot more common than you think and that minor issue youre having with your bowel movements could be something major. It never hurts to be on the safe side and get checked.

3. Indigestion

Indigestion or trouble swallowing could be a sign that you have esophageal cancer or something along those lines. While we all go through our heartburn moments if it wont go away you should get it checked out. Give it a couple of days and if you dont notice change see a doctor.

4. Persistent Bloating

Sure, sometimes we get bloated but if youve been bloated and stayed bloated for awhile you should see your doctor. There has to be a driving force behind it and that driving force is better identified sooner than later. We dont often think anything of being bloated but it can be caused by some very serious issues.

5. Hoarseness

This too could have something to do with esophageal cancer. If you are struggling with hoarseness you should see someone about it. While you might think it will go away in a few days those few days can turn into a few weeks quickly.......

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

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.

Pope Punishes Cardinal in Sexual Abuse Case "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW YORK Cardinal Theodore McCarrick, the retired Roman Catholic archbishop of Washington, D.C., has been removed from public ministry and faces further punishment over credible allegations that he sexually abused a teenager while a priest in New York more than 40 years ago, the church announced Wednesday.

Pope Francis ordered the 87-year-old cardinals removal pending further action that could end in his expulsion from the priesthood. A church panel determined that a former altar boys allegations that McCarrick fondled him during preparations for Christmas Mass at St. Patricks Cathedral in 1971 and 1972 were credible and substantiated.

McCarrick, the Washington archbishop from 2000 to 2006, is one of the highest-ranking U.S. church officials accused in a sexual abuse scandal that has seen thousands of priests implicated. The church also acknowledged that it had made previously undisclosed legal settlements with adults who accused McCarrick of sexual misconduct decades ago.

McCarrick said he was shocked by the former altar boys allegation and denied it in a statement distributed through the church. He said he cooperated in the investigation and accepted the popes decision out of obedience to the church.

While I have absolutely no recollection of this reported abuse, and believe in my innocence, I am sorry for the pain the person who brought the charges has gone through, as well as for the scandal such charges cause our people, McCarrick said.

The former altar boy, a New York-area businessman in his early 60s, went to a church compensation program in January with allegations that McCarrick fondled him when he was 16 and 17, his lawyer said, and met in April with the church panel verifying his claims. Lawyer Patrick Noaker said it was his only option because criminal and civil statutes of limitations had long kicked in.

According to the lawyer, the former altar boy said McCarrick unzipped his pants, reached inside and fondled him while taking measurements for a cassock he was to wear during the Mass. He remembers McCarrick saying to him, Lets not tell anybody about this.

A year later, Noaker said, McCarrick cornered the boy in a bathroom, grabbed him and shoved his hand into his pants. The boy pushed McCarrick away and ran out, Noaker said.

The encounters shook the teenager, who had aspired to become a priest, to his foundation, Noaker said.

Also Wednesday, the Newark, New Jersey archdiocese, where McCarrick was a bishop and archbishop, said it was aware of three decades-old allegations against him involving sexual misconduct with adults no cases there involving minors and that two of them resulted in legal settlements.

The Newark Archdiocese declined to provide additional details, citing con...

November: Democrats Are Counting On A Wave, While Republicans Count On Gerrymandered Districts "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Monday morning, the right-wing Washington Examiner tried painting a picture that the Blue Wave is no sure thing. I guess they hoped no one would dig down into their article-- which pretty much shows-- as far as anything 4 months away can do-- that it really is. They cite polling numbers that go up and down but end by admitting the Democrats are ahead in generic polling now by between 7.3 and 7.7%. And they don't talk much about independent votes who have turned against the GOP and who aren't affected by a gerrymandered map.

They then quote a former conservative Democratic hack who spends his time on Fox News, Pat Caddell, as though he were an actual Democrat. Caddell, a blowhard is always available to be the "Democrat" who proves whatever the GOP wants him to prove but even he couldn't say there was no wave coming. "I think the blue wave has receded somewhat," said Pat Caddell, a longtime Democratic pollster and consultant who is now a Fox News contributor. "I still think that as long as this election remains unclear about how its focused, there is an instinct in off years for anybody who disapproves of anything about the incumbent to vote no" on the presidential party.
Karl Rove dismisses the idea of a blue wave even in the House. Instead, 2018 will be a brutal district-by-district battle, he wrote in the Wall Street Journal. Each outcome will be determined as much by the quality of candidates and their campaigns as by the national climate.

That doesnt mean all is well for the GOP, however. Republican strategists conceded to the Washington Examiner that there is still an intensity gap that favors the Democrats. Voters are motivated by three things: greed, anger and fear, said Brian O. Walsh, president of the pro-Trump outside group America First Action and a former NRCC pol...

HPR2579: Ubuntu 18.04 Mate "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ubuntu Mate 18.04 Good day to all you HPR Listers. Sorry that its been a while since I recorded a show, but as they say life has got in the way over the last few months, and I've spent quite a bit of it away from the home front. As it happens on one of those trips away my laptop running Mint Mate 18.3 LTS, based on Ubuntu 16.04LTS decided that it wouldn't boot as it didn't recognise my account, and as I had not created a Root account I could not sign in and fix the issue, which was a corrupted configuration file in the users folder. As luck would have it I had just downloaded the latest Ubuntu Mate 18.04 .iso to try it as a live disc, so I had a boot disc that I could use to boot the laptop and access the data to rescue all my important information which was mainly all my emails and my browser settings and bookmarks, as this is one of my travelling laptops not much of importance is permanently stored on it, so it didn't take long and I was ready to reinstall the OS to the PC. Just in case I had missed some important data on the current SSD, as I had a spare SSD with me in the bag, yes I'm geeky enough to carry a spare SSD or 2 in the bag. So I dug it out and installed it into the PC, which by the way is a Dell Latitude E6540 with an i5 dual core mobile chip with hyper-threading. It's currently running 4Gig DDR3 RAM but can run up to 16Gig in the 2 slots it has. So I booted the laptop with the USB boot disc I had created and as with all recent Ubuntu releases you get a screen asking if you want to try or install the OS, as I needed a working PC I went straight to the install option. For those not familiar with Linux or Ubuntu, the installer is a joy to use and very friendly to new users. As this was a first install to this SSD the only option I had was a full install which I chose, then was asked if I wanted to do the default install which partitions the drive and installs the bootloader automatically without any further need for intervention or did I want to do a custom partition arrangement. As the default is adequate for my needs I chose this and clicked continue. During this process you also get the option of a minimal or full installation, the minimal installation gets you a running PC with the basic utilities and leaves you to chose what to install later, but as I use the software that would be omitted I chose the full install. You get asked a final time if you are sure you want to install, with a warning that all current data on the disc will be wiped, as I was happy I clicked proceed. At this point the install starts and you are taken through setting up your PC configuration for language, keyboard, and user account. By the time I had completed this, the install was half completed and the whole process took less than 15 minutes. After the install is complete you get the message to reboot the PC and eject the boot media to reboot into the new install, on first boot you will either be presented with the login screen or go straight t...

Destiny and Daring: South Korean President Moon Jae-Ins Impossible Journey Towards Peace "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

South Korean President Moon Jae-In

The South Korean president, Moon Jae-In, has been a discreet if powerful mover in the recent dtente and peace-building process between North and South Korea and the US.  If the momentum of the Panmunjom Declaration and the successful summit between the DPRK and the US are continued, then promising outcomes are possible: peace and denuclearization of the peninsula, economic reintegration, diplomatic normalization, possible future confederation, and fundamental geopolitical shift.  What bodes well is that the people of South Korea have extraordinary confidence in President Moon Jae and his policies.  This much loved and respected individual is someone who has spent a lifetime achieving extraordinary outcomes while struggling against impossible, unbelievable odds.

The following passages in block quotes are some vignettes (in his own words, lightly annotated or edited for clarity) extracted from his modest, understated autobiography, Destiny, written in 2011, that give us some insights into this extraordinary leader and human being.

Rich Tigers and Starving Dogs:

In 1972, the South Korean military dictator Park Chung Heea former Japanese colonial collaboratordirected his secret police to rewrite South Koreas authoritarian constitution.  The result, known as the Yushin [revitalizing reform] constitution, was a totalitarian document cribbed in title, content, and spirit from the Imperial Meiji Constitution of the Japanese Empire.  This constitution granted Park the South Korean presidency for life, along with powers comparable to the Japanese Showa Emperor.

Sodaemun Prison was an infamous prison constructed by the Japanese 1907 to imprison and torture Korean independence activists during their long colonization of Korea.  After the Japanese left, the South Korean military dictatorshipcreated from whole cloth from former Japanese collaborators by a cold war US caretaker governmentused it to imprison many South Korean activists fighting for democratic reformin continuity with the habits of their former colonial masters.  When popular protests broke out against this 1972 constitutional coup, Park Chung Hee imprisoned and tortured its key leaders.  Moon Jae-In was one of the student activist leaders imprisoned in Sodaemun Prison for protesting the Yushin reforms.  Here he describ...

The Horrifying, Racist, Greed-Corrupted Profiteers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Now THIS is what Ive been looking for.

Yahoo News just released a story detailing some of the companies who are actually profiting off Trumps zero-tolerance policy. Without alleging that individuals at these corporations feel subjective malice towards others based on race, we can unequivocally say that they are participating in a harmful, horrifying, racist policy. The fact that theyre doing it for the money instead of true belief in Racial Holy War will be their defense. Let it also be the sum total of their sources of comfort.

Comprehensive Health Services Inc. (CHSI), a Florida-based company that touts its experience with immigrant shelter services received the bulk of the contracts.

Dynamic Service Solutions, a Maryland firm, was awarded a contract worth up to $8.7 million from HHS through the shelter care for unaccompanied children vehicle in September 2017.

Southwest Key Programs was awarded two contracts through the vehicle in September 2017 worth up to $1.8 million each for emergency shelter operations.

Dynamic Educational Systems, a subsidiary of the Arizona firm Exodyne, was awarded a pair of HHS contracts worth up to approximately $5.6 million for emergency shelter operations.

The fifth business with contracts through the HHS vehicle for shelter care for unaccompanied children is Virginia-based MVM. According to GovTribe, the company was awarded two contracts worth up to $9.5 million in September 2017 for shelter operations and for unspecified emergency and other relief services.

The Southwest Key link goes to a temporary page the increase in traffic after they were identified as profiting from the ICEolation policy apparently broke their old server. Otherwise, all links go directly to corporate contact/comment pages.

Please do your part and respectfully (though firmly, if you wish) let these companies know that their participation in this ongoing violation of international and domestic law has been noticed and will affect their respective corporate images. It appears that most, if not all, of these get most, if not all, of their money from direct or indirect government contracts. We cant threaten to stop buying their widgets, but we can let them know that their bad behavior has been immortalized and will follow them.

Weapons of mass deception and mass construction "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

THIS weeks pledge by Foreign Minister Julie Bishop to counter-balance Chinas power push in the Pacific with a greater Australian presence on the ground offers a slither of hope in an otherwise grim international outlook. There has been much wringing of foreign-policy hands recently over threats to the rules-based international order. The sources of that threat can be distilled to three. Russia is unabashedly using an arsenal of weapons of mass deception. China is expanding its program of weapons of mass construction. And, meanwhile, the United States has slowly and unilaterally disarmed itself of great portions of its diplomatic power.

These are the three unexpected trends stemming from the end of Soviet communism and the fall of the Berlin Wall. At the time, we thought the peace dividend would fall in to our lap and there would be a virtual end to nation-to-nation military rivalry and conflict. Democracy and market capitalism had won, or so it seemed. But 30 years later, democracy, market capitalism, the rules-based international order, and a collective and multi-lateral approach to world trouble spots and trade are under threats unimagined when Soviet communism was defeated.

Russia has no shame. Even when caught out meddling in elections in democracies, it just denies it and carries on. It is using technology not in the imagination of the military mind a decade ago.

China uses construction power to widen its sphere of power and influence. It has built islands from reefs in the South China Sea and made territorial claims based on them, flouting international law and the rulings of international courts. It has offered easy loans to small nations, particularly on its Belt and Road Initiative, to enable Chinese trains, trucks and ships to go from one friendly access point to another across the Eurasian landmass.

Failure to repay, however, threatens the sovereignty of the small nations who are then compelled to cede leases over and equity in the access points in lieu of debt repayment.

The US appears powerless to do much about either China or Russia, perhaps in the case of latter because Russia has a hold over the President. The USs heart might be in the right place to promote peace and stability but its responses to R...

Clinton Through Obama Era 'Family Separation' Policy Ended By Trump Executive Order "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Today US President Donald Trump ended a Bill Clinton era policy seperating children from their adult family members when those adults are determined to have been entering the United States without legal authorization (archived). Since a 1997 settlement entered into by the Clinton administration disallowed holding children in "immigration jails" for more than 20 days, children have been separated from their families and moved to seperate facilities run by the US Department of "Health and Human Services". Those facilities for detaining children while jail-like are simply not called "immigration jails" to comply with terms of the settlement.

In the past weeks this 21 year old policy decision undone today by President Trump's executive order has becoming an increasingly loud propaganda point for pansuitist social engineers that painted the Bill Clinton family separation policy as a Trump policy.

As a result of Trump's executive order children will still be detained, but with their families. In facilities that thanks to the 1997 settlement are still likely to be referred to as something other as "immigration jails".

Woman Changes Everything For A Squirrel In Desperate Need Of Help "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jannet Talbott lives on a ranch in rural Alberta, Canada, miles from the nearest town, but she's far from all alone. A host of animals, both domestic and wild, live on her property and she knows that being a good neighbor means looking out for them, too.

Recently, Talbott went above and beyond to do just that.

Credit: Jannet Talbott

A few weeks ago, Talbott was on her deck enjoying the sight of a squirrel having a snack in one of her open bird feeders. Several local squirrels frequent the spot, and Talbott is happy to have them but then she noticed there was something unusual about this particular visitor.

"I could see there was something on the side of his face," Talbott told The Dodo. "I got closer and thought, Oh my gosh, thats a massive tooth growing out of his mouth."

Credit: Jannet Talbott

Squirrels' teeth never stop growing, but they are normally kept in check from use.

Somehow, this squirrel's tooth had grown long enough to reach his eye and it was putting his life at risk. Talbott decided she had to try to help him.

Talbott named this squirrel Bucky, and began to ponder how she might catch him. Over the weeks that followed, the problem kept her up at night. But then she had a lucky break.

"One day, I saw him in the feeder. It was like divine intervention. I just had to reach in and grab him," Talbott said. "Once I had him in my hand, I just kept telling him, Im going to help you, Bucky. Youre going to be OK."

It was then...

NASA to Measure Plant Water Use Using ECOSTRESS Instrument on the ISS "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New NASA Mission to Detect Plant Water Use from Space

Doctors learn a lot about their patients' health by taking their temperature. An elevated temperature, or fever, can be a sign of illness. The same goes for plants, but their temperatures on a global scale are harder to measure than the temperatures of individual people.

That's about to change, thanks to a new NASA instrument that soon will be installed on the International Space Station called ECOSTRESS, or ECOsystem Spaceborne Thermal Radiometer Experiment on Space Station. ECOSTRESS will measure the temperature of plants from space. This will enable researchers to determine plant water use and to study how drought conditions affect plant health.

[...] ECOSTRESS will hitch a ride to the space station on a NASA-contracted, SpaceX cargo resupply mission scheduled to launch from Cape Canaveral Air Force Station in Florida on June 29. Once it arrives, it will be robotically installed on the exterior of the station's Japanese Experiment Module Exposed Facility Unit.

How to Date An Introvert: 5 Things You Need to Know "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

While it might not seem like a big deal, whether or not you are introverted can strongly affect your relationships. If someone doesnt mesh with you then conflicts are bound to arise.

Being with an introvert when you arent one is sometimes very hard. Introverts are a lot more unique than we tend to give them credit for and most of the time need more space than most other people would. When it comes to being with an introvert you need to know the following things.

If you can understand and accept these things, your relationship will go a lot better. These are things most people never take the time to truly let sink in. You cant change the introvert but you can work to understand him or her.

5 Things You Need to Know:

1. Just because they are not very affectionate doesnt mean they arent into you.

Knowing this will benefit you greatly. While some introverts are affectionate, not all are. Since we are people, we tend to crave affection. However, when it comes to dating an introvert you need to understand that just because he or she is not all over you constantly doesnt mean that they dont want you around or like you in that way. They just do things differently.

2. Without communication things will never work, you have to speak up.

Communication is important in all relationships, but when youre dating an introvert it is even more important. You have to voice your concerns and needs. He or she is not going to know you want more attention if you never speak up, they are introverts, not mind readers. Chances are they will be happy to oblige if you make them aware.

3. Sometimes they withdraw and its not your fault.

Sometimes introverts withdraw, this is not usually because of you or anyone for that matter. They just need some space. While sometimes they will need a little more space than usual you shouldnt obsess over it. It is perfectly normal.

4. They dont like small talk.

Introverts are typically not fans of small talk. This makes social gatherings, especially those with your friends and family hard for them. While they might seem out of place, it is not because they arent trying it is because they are uncomfortable. They want to go meet your family and make you happy but they also struggle with these kinds of things.

5. You cannot change them.

The introvert is not going to magically become an extrovert overnight. You cannot change him or her and that is something you have to accept. We are who we are and if you cannot accept these things about your partner your relationship will be doomed.

Market Talk- June 20, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Good to see a healthy rebound in todays Asian markets with strong performances across the board. It still appears however, that the market is not that confident that the US and China have settled for the moment as the Shanghai bounced just +0.3% and Hang Seng +0.75%. It was a different storey for countries with floating exchange rates, as we watched both Australia and Japan rebound over 1%. Obviously, currencies continued to suffer with the A$ and Yen both off 0.5% over the past couple of days. They tried desperately to halt the INRs decline, only ti close mid range at 68.10 today. Having seen 68.185 at its weakest, many comment that trading with a 68 handle is already a cause for concern. On a brighter note however, core Asian indices all closed at or near their highs, providing confidence ahead of the OPEC uncertainty.

The same could not be said for Europe, as many indices closed near the days lows. Having run-up on the back of a strong Asian session, many had expected Europe to continue especially as DOW futures had triple digit gains. However, as the Euro and GBP traded weaker confidence started to wane especially when US data released less than impressive. Sterling found a little interest late in the day after UK PM Theresa May won a parliamentary decision which should strengthen her hand in BREXIT negotiations. However, the rally only took it up to test 1.32 handle but was rejected by the close.

In the US it was the Russell and NASDAQ again that took the honours. Both core indices closed up around +0.75% on the day and setting a new record for the NASDAQ. The large caps DOW found it difficult to get into its stride today, playing between positive and negative it finally closed a touch lower in the indecision. The NASDAQ and S+P both hits their days high mid afternoon, but could hold-on into the close. Still lots to play for this week, but next will be interesting as we close the week, month, quarter and half year next Friday.

Japan +0.04%, US 2s closed 2.56% (+1bp), 10s closed 2.94% (+5bp), 30s 3.07% (+4bp), Bund 0.37% (u/c), France 0.71% (+1bp), Italy 2.54% (-1bp), Greece 4.30% (-1bp), Portugal 1.73% (+1bp), Spain 1.23% (u/c), Turkey 16.18% (+5bp) and Gilts 1.29% (+1bp).

Trackball Gets Bolt-On Button Upgrade "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The question of whether to use a mouse versus a trackball is something of a Holy War on the level of Vi versus Emacs. We at Hackaday want no part of such things, use whatever you want, and leave us out of it. But we will go as far as to say that Team Trackball seems to take things mighty seriously. Weve never met a casual trackball user: if theyve got a trackball on their desk then get ready to hear all about it.

With that in mind, the lengths [LayeredDesigns] went to just to add a couple extra buttons to his CST trackball make a bit more sense. Obviously enamored with this particular piece of pointing technology, he designed a 3D printed sidecar that you can mount to the left side of the stock trackball. Matching the shape of the original case pretty closely, this add-on module currently hosts a pair of MX mechanical keys, but the plans dont stop there.

U.S. quits UN Human Rights Council "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Trump administration withdrew from the United Nations Human Rights Council on Tuesday, making good on a pledge to leave a body it accused of hypocrisy and bias against Israel.

For too long, the Human Rights Council has been a protector of human rights abusers, and a cesspool of political bias, Nikki Haley, the American ambassador to the UN, said Tuesday at the State Department in Washington. She said the decision was an affirmation of U.S. respect for human rights, a commitment that does not allow us to remain a part of a hypocritical and self-serving organization that makes a mockery of human rights.

The 47-member council, created in 2006 and based in Geneva, began its latest session on Monday with a broadside against President Donald Trumps immigration policy by the UNs high commissioner for human rights, Zeid Raad al-Hussein. He called the policy of separating children from parents illegally crossing the southern border of the U....

Lovesick Cat Won't Stop Staring At Photo Of Her Favorite Person "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Up until a year ago, this sweet-natured black cat named Yuuki was just another lonely shelter cat hoping to find a forever home.

But then she fell in love.

Erin Nimrichter's 19-year-old son, Max, is currently in his first year of service in the U.S. Navy. About six months before leaving their home in Ohio to go to boot camp, Max adopted Yuuki from the Cleveland Animal Protective League.

He thought having a kitty around would make his absence more tolerable for his mother. But Yuuki quickly decided that Max was the one she loved the most. And the feeling was mutual.

"Max has always felt connections to any animals he was around," Nimrichter told The Dodo. "Hes a sweetheart."

But Max and Yuuki's routine of daily snuggles eventually came to an end when it came time for him to ship out.

Max was now serving his country out of state, so it was understandable that he couldn't return home to visit very often.

Yuuki didn't get the memo.

In time, Yuuki seemed to accept that Max wasn't going to come strolling through the door at any moment. But she never stopped loving him. Instead, she found another way to keep his memory alive in h...

Theres a Glaring Double Standard When It Comes to the News and Nobodys Talking About It "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Today ABC News informed their viewership that Paul Manafort, a former Trump aide, was convicted of a crime no one even knew he had been charged with. No one knew because it wasnt true. But if you watched ABCs special coverage of Trumps announcement that he would be reversing the zero tolerance border policy, you may have been led to believe otherwise.

During the special coverage, the following words were displayed quite clearly beneath the live feed of Donald Trump:

Manafort pleads guilty to 5 charges of manslaughter.

While the former chairman of Trumps presidential campaign does face an array of charges including tax fraud and obstruction of justice, Manafort hasnt killed anybody. At least that were aware of.

We regret and apologize for the false lower third graphic that aired during our special report. We are investigating how incorrect information was in our system and how and why it was allowed to air, ABC News said in a statement. We apologize to our viewers and to Mr. Manafort. There simply is no excuse for this sort of mistake.

Well that sounds good, right? They apologized. No harm, no foul.

Cyclists See Animal Perched Atop Cactus And Cant Believe Who She Is "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Its common to see owls perched atop cactuses in the Arizona deserts but last weekend, that spot was taken up by someone much larger.

Friends Philip Houck and Doug Carter were riding their bikes through a hiking trail in Buckeye when they noticed an animal standing on top of a very, very tall saguaro cactus.

It was only when the men got closer that they really turned their heads. It was a bobcat, with all four paws gripped onto the tip of the spiky plant.

They stopped their bikes and snapped a few photos as the nimble cat continued to sit there.

Credit: Facebook/Tucson News Now

Just when the men thought the big cat might be stranded, she leapt down and ran away.

They were rightfully perplexed by the sight but it actually happens more often than one would think.

Every so often, photos of bobcats like this make the rounds in the media, Susan Bass, communications manager for Big Cat Rescue, told The Dodo. Bobcats are incredibly resourceful animals. He probably climbed up the cactus to escape a predator.

Credit: Facebook/Tucson News Now

A few years ago, another bobcat went viral for that very reason. In hopes of getting a mountain lion off his trail, he took refuge atop one of the prickly plants and it worked.

A photographer happened to be nearby when it happened, which resulted in some stunning photos of the cat huddled up on top of the huge cactus.

While its easy to feel concerned when big cats appear to be stuck, Bass assured people that the animals know exactly what theyre doing.

And despite ending up a little spiky,...

Beluga whales hearing, new research "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This 2017 video is called Things You Should Know About Beluga Whales.

From Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution in the USA:

Beluga whales have sensitive hearing, little age-related loss

June 20, 2018

Scientists published the first hearing tests on a wild population of healthy marine mammals. The tests on beluga whales in Bristol Bay, Alaska, revealed that the whales have sensitive hearing abilities and the number of animals that experienced extensive hearing losses was far less than what scientists had anticipated.

The latter findings contrasted with expectations from previous studies of humans and bottlenose dolphins, which showed more hearing loss as they aged, says Aran Mooney, a biologist at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) and lead author of two new studies on beluga whales. But unlike the wild beluga population, the dolphins that were studied lived in a very noisy environment, as most humans do.

At a time when noise in the ocean is increasing from human activities, such as oil and gas exploration and ship traffic, understanding the natural hearing abilities of whales and other endangered marine mammals is crucial to assessing potential noise impacts on animals and to management efforts to mitigate sound-induced hearing loss.

In the two related studies, WHOI researchers and their colleagues measured the hearing sensitivity of 26 wild belugas and then compared the audiograms to acoustic measurements made within their summer habitat in Bristol Bay to study how natural soundscapes-all sounds within their environment-may influence hearing sensitivity. The soundscape also reveals sound clues that the belugas may use to navigate. The first study was published May 8, 2018, in the Journal of Experimental Biology. Results from the soundscape study were published June 20, 2018,...

Foreign Buyers Ban some additional points "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Adam had first commented on this item back before Christmas 2017. He was not impressed then. Then Adam noted an RNZ report on the report back from the select committee

Eric Crampton on the foreign buyers ban

He makes some excellent points.

Labours foreign buyer ban is back from select committee

Recall that I had a few issues with the prior draft

Amongst them were:

  • Permanent residents who split time overseas, or who have to spend some time abroad, can be hit by it.

  • It would mess up financing of projects like apartment towers where funding can come from foreigners who buy off-the-plans and then rent to locals.

  • It will mess up building larger developments where the developer is considered foreign-owned because more than 25% of their shareholding is foreign

He identified a number of others

And, on top of all that, its hard even to show that theres any kind of problem. The proportion of transactions involving foreign-affiliated buyers is low, and highly variable across the country.

Winstons dowry "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Taxpayers Union has launched a policy cost-tracker Winstons Dowry:

With Winston Peters now the Prime Minister, the New Zealand Taxpayers Union is launching a new policy cost tracking project to calculate the cost of Mr Peters and his Party in forming the coalition Government.

Marriage can be expensive, but normally the guests arent given a bill at the end of the ceremony, says Jordan Williams, Executive Director of the Taxpayers Union.

In a political marriage, the cost of attendance can be significant. Winstons Dowry calculates the total cost to taxpayers from the demands of two-time coalition divorce, Winston Peters.

Our economic staff will be updating the Dowry regularly as new vanity projects, and pork-laden policies are announced.

So far, Winstons Dowry includes the Provincial Growth Fund, significant increases in spending for the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Trade, and the Ministry of Defence, a vanity project re-branding of the Ministry for Children, and a tax credit for hot horses, among other initiatives.

As it stands, Winstons Dowry is already $5.1 billion or $2960 per New Zealand household.  With Mr Peters now the Prime Minister the figure could grow significantly in coming weeks. Taxpayers had better hold on tight.

Details of Winstons Dowry are available at www.winstonsdowry.nz.

20 Signs Youre An Alpha Female That Stands Out Above the Rest "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When you think alpha woman what comes to mind? A strong, beautiful, powerful woman? Well, not all alpha women are that noticeable in the beginning.

Are you an alpha woman? Look for the signs below.

20 Ways Alpha Females Stand Out From Everyone Else

1. She is well balanced.

She is not one of those women who struggle to maintain a balance between their work and personal lives. She knows how important this is and does not lose sight of it. She is very well put together.

2. She can read people and situations.

She knows when something is going to benefit her and can also identify when someone has harmful intentions. She knows to walk away from something that is about to take a turn for the worse and saves herself a whole lot of stress.

3. She does not try to compete with other women.

She knows who she is and is not easily made insecure by others. She knows what other people expect of her and does not allow herself to get swept up in it all. She is comfortable in her own skin and does not look to other women for verification of this.

4. She takes constructive criticism well.

She is not afraid to hear the truth, no matter how hard it is to hear. No matter how much she achieves she knows there will always be room for improvement and will continue to improve. She has no problem accepting criticism and solves the issue directly from the source.

5. She tells it like it is.

People are drawn to her because they know she will always tell the truth. She doesnt waste time telling others what she thinks they want to hear. She does not sugarcoat anything no matter the situation.

6. Her actions seem to be effortless.

She makes hard work look easy. She appears to have everything all put together and inspires others to do so as well. She remains on point whether those around her are falling apart or not.

7. She has a natural confidence.

This is something most women lack. She has a well-earned confidence that follows her no matter where she goes. She knows she has the ability to get things done properly and attracts positivity wherever she steps. She is able to remain confident without becoming cocky.

8. She carries herself well.

You can tell by the way she steps that she is important and knows her self-worth. She knows exactly what to say and when to say it; it is almost like she is a mind reader. You cannot help but let her read your mind, she is just someone you feel like you ca...

Public servants paid too well? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Homepaddock

The Taxpayers Union has some facts to dampen public sector wage claims:

Over the last 25 years, public sector incomes have grown much faster than the private sector, while public sector employees also enjoy a higher rate of sick leave costing taxpayers $173 million, according to Public Sector Wage Gap: The taxpayer-funded premium for working for the government, a new report weve released today.

If you work for the Government, you earn a third more on average, with taxpayers footing the bill.

This report seriously undermines the public sector unions claim for 9-15 percent pay hikes for their members. It blows to bits claims the last Government did not pay bureaucrats enough.

The public sector pay gap nearly doubled since the 1990s. If anything, a wage freeze, not hikes, would be fairer.

Left wing activists and unions would have the public believe that the public sector has undergone nine years

Real resource constraints and fiscal policy design "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There is an interesting dilemma currently emerging in Australia, which provides an excellent case study on how governments can use fiscal policy effectively and the problems that are likely to arise in that application. At present, the Australian states are engaging in an infrastructure building boom with several large (mostly public sector) projects underway involving improvements to road, ports, water supply, railways, airports and more. I travel a lot and in each of the major cities you see major areas sectioned off as tunnels are being dug and buildings erected. Not all of the projects are desirable (for example, the West Connex freeway project in Sydney has trampled on peoples rights) and several prioritise the motor car over public transport. But many of the projects will deliver much better public transport options in the future. On a national accounts level, these projects have helped GDP growth continue as household consumption has moderated and private investment has been consistently weak to negative. But, and this is the point, there have been sporadic reports recounting how Australia is running out of cement, hard rock and concrete and other building materials, which is pushing up costs. This is the real resource constraint that Modern Monetary Theory (MMT) emphasises as the limits to government spending, rather than any concocted financial constraints. If there are indeed shortages of real resources that are essential to infrastructure development then that places a limit on how fast governments can build these public goods. The other point is that as these shortages are emerging, there is still over 15 per cent of our available labour resources that are being unused in one way or another 714,600 are unemployed, 1,123.9 thousand are underemployed, and participation rates are down so hidden unemployment has risen. So that indicates there is a need for higher deficits while the infrastructure bottlenecks suggest spending constraints are emerging. That is the challenge. Come in policies like the Job Guarantee.

Infrastructure boom yet idle labour

Australia is currently enjoying a major infrastructure spending boom via several large-scale projects in the States and Territories, but also at the Federal level (for example, the National Broadband Network construction).

There is no doubt that one of the major reasons Australias GDP growth has been relatively robust in recent years is due to this large public spending commitment.

Protect Immigrants Rights: End The Crises That Drive Migration "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Immigrant rights are human rights (Susan Melkisethian from flickr)

The ugliness of US immigration policy is once again evident. There is national outrage that separating children, often infants, from their parents is wrong. There is also national consensus (nine out of ten people in the US) that people brought here by their parents, the Dreamers, should not be forced out of the country as adults. The highly restrictive, dysfunctional immigration system in the United States serves the interests of  big business and US Empire. Investors can cross borders to find workers who will accept slave-labor wages and dangerous environments, but workers cannot cross borders to find better wages and safety.

US-pushed corporate trade agreements serve the interests of transnational corporations, allowing them to legally take advantage of cheap labor and to steal natural resources, but workers cannot cross borders when their economy is destroyed or their communities are poisoned.

US militarism and regime change cross borders to replace governments that are working to improve the lives and autonomy of their people and install authoritarian governments, but people who are facing the terrorism of US-supported security states cannot cross the border to find refuge.

The violence of the drug trade that serves US consumers creates mafia and gang violence in other countries, but people who live with the violence of drug gangsterism cannot cross borders to escape.

Scott Pruitt Has Spent a Total of $4.6 Million on Security, New Disclosures Show Including $1,500 on Tactical Pants "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Scandal-plagued Environmental Protection Agency Administrator Scott Pruitt has now spent more than $4.6 million from public coffers on security, according to documents obtained by The Intercept and Documented under the Freedom of Information Act. The amount represents a $1.1 million increase from Pruitts total security costs as released in another disclosure just a month ago.

Pruitts high spending on security has become the subject of mounting criticism and a host of official investigations: Several EPA inspector general investigations have been opened, as well as an ongoing investigation by the Republican-controlled House Oversight Committee.

Records released under the Freedom of Information Act list expenditures totaling $288,610 on a range of security-related items. The EPA, according to three expense line items for April, spent a total of $2,749.62 on tactical pants and tactical polos.

Since last year, shortly after his Senate confirmation, Pruitts office began purchasing security-related items, including multiple vehicle leases, over $80,000 worth of radios, $700 in shoulder holsters for the radios, and a kit to break down doors, among other purchases.

An EPA spokesperson did not respond to a request for comment.

The expenses eclipsed spending by Pruitts predecessors. Former EPA Administrator Lisa Jackson, who served during President Barack Obamas first term, averaged less than a third of the travel and security costs accrued by Pruitt in his first fiscal year, according to records.

In May, CNBC and other outlets reported that the mounting cost of Pruitts security detail had reached $3.5 million, but that didnt include any of the cost of equipment or the most recent salary and travel expenditures.

Despite the mounting criticism of Pruitts high spending, his se...

Count The Bracelet Lines on Your Wrist! How Many do You Have? Heres What it Means! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hand reading is considered to be an ancient art, and has been traced all the way back to India thousands of years ago. Also known as Palmistry this is something everyone can benefit from.

While most are quick to dismiss the validity of hand readings they have always proven to be accurate for me. Each line and pattern on our hands and wrists mean something different. The bracelet lines I was referring to are also called rascette lines and can be seen in the image below.

The first line is the most important than the rest and if clear and unbroken means that you will have good health. The more lines a person has the longer they are expected to live. Most people have two or three lines, however, some people have four. If you happen to be one of those lucky people with four you are likely to live to your eighties or longer.

This sort of thing is a bit hard to understand at first as it is a lot to take in, but if you want to learn more please take the time to watch the video below. It will tell you all you need to know about basic hand readings and how to figure out what yours are telling you. Enjoy!

Federal Judge to Consider Independent Monitor for Illinois Child Welfare Agency "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The American Civil Liberties Union of Illinois asked a federal judge on Wednesday to take the rare step of appointing a special master to resolve disputes and data requests related to statewide child welfare reforms, including providing more appropriate services for children languishing in psychiatric hospitals.

The ACLU, which has monitored the Illinois Department of Children and Family Services for decades as part of a federal court consent decree, appeared in front of U.S. District Judge Jorge Alonso after writing in court documents that DCFS had repeatedly failed to honor promises made during negotiations.

The most recent dispute centers on how the oft-criticized department is carrying out a reform plan. That plan calls for a total overhaul of the agency, as well as the turnover of relevant data to the ACLU and independent experts named in 2015 to aid and oversee the departments progress.

A special master, typically a magistrate judge or a professional with a legal background, would resolve fundamental disagreements between the ACLU, the court-appointed experts and DCFS over how the agency provides services for children who need them most, including children stuck in psychiatric hospitals after theyve been cleared for release, according to Heidi Dalenberg, general counsel for the ACLU.

We recognize that its a difficult problem to solve but its a problem that the department owns and they have to figure out a solution to it, Dalenberg said after the hearing. We do not think that after three years under this implementation plan we should still be hearing, This is really hard.

A ProPublica Illinois investigation this month found that hundreds of children were trapped at psychiatric hospitals between 2015 and 2017 after doctors had cleared them for release known as beyond medical necessity because DCFS had failed to find them places to go. Many of those children, some as young as 4, were confined to the hospitals for weeks or months on end as they waited for DCFS to move them to more appropriate settings, such as residential treatment centers, specialized foster homes or a relatives home.

The department spent nearly $7 million during that time on the unnecessary hospitalizations.

DCFS officials, who acknowledge the problem, resisted the appointment of a special master in court Wednesday. Instead, they asked Alonso to appoint someone with child welfare experience to monitor the situation, saying the agency has been responsive to information requests from the ACLU and court-appointed experts and has collaborated w...

HITLERS' MODERN JOSEPH GOEBBELS IN O''NEILL'S SONJA BARRY RAMOI "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by BEN NEGINTS
Joseph Goebbels was a contemporary of Adolf Hitler and a very smart media personality Hitler used during the Nazi's Reign of Terror.  He was the Minister for Communications and Propaganda and his job was to brainwash the ignorant German population on anti-Semitic views, the superiority of the White and the Nazi race  and many other lies.

Through his persistent lies and propaganda, the Jews were nearly exterminated from the face of the earth. Through his persistent lies and propaganda millions of soldiers lost their lives during the WW1. Only God knows the damages done to human lives and properties  as a result of one cunning persistent liar spreading false  news and propaganda.

Behind this backdrop of history,  I am saddened to see  a Joseph Goebbels look alike in  Sonja Barry Ramoi who without any shame persistently spreading O'Neill's lies and propaganda  through both Social and Main Stream medias on a daily basis.

To be honest,  every time I see a Press Release from Sonja Barry Ramoi I feel like throwing up. Her propaganda and false information are so nauseating and bitterly distasteful.

I am definitely sure Sonja Barry Ramoi  would be reading this post and I would like to appeal to you to stop making a  mockery of Journalism,  human intelligence,  human reasoning and human empathy.

Joseph Goebbels easily  connived his way around with the ignorant mass in those early days. Today we are living in a day and age of enlightenment.  PNGeans are no more "gullible and ignorant" idiots for  you and O'Neill to continue spreading your false  propaganda and lies.

I challenge Sonja Barry Ramoi and O'Neill and his well cushioned cronies and MPs on the Government side  to come down on the ground and see for yourselves the daily struggles every PNGean is facing. Here are a few list for you to get yourselves acquainted with:

1. Sky rocketed cost of living. Go into a shop with a K100 and you will check out at the counter with a small plastic bag  hardly containing enough to take care of a daily meal for an average PNG household...

Turnbull tax cuts and the ressurection of neoliberalism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Contributed by Adam Carlton

Thanks mainly to the about face by formally Xenophon Senators, now known as the Centre Alliance, the governments intended $143 billion tax cut is set to get through.

The whole thing is a major con, designed to create the illusion that the government was handing out money to the average Australian, but really using this as a smokescreen to take much more.

By having initially joined the opposition to these cuts, the Centre Alliance showed that it knows this. The said so. Especially when they are given to the those enjoying being in the top 20 percent of incomes. This is why they objected to the Third Stage, which hands them  a windfall. But after backroom talks they come out agreeing to stifle debate and not pursue their own objections. This sets up the Alliance to being accused of being corrupted.

Pauline Hanson has achieved an even more spectacular back flip, from vocal opposition to an enthusiastic supporter.

Turnbull and his ministers have rehashed the old trickle down argument, by arguing that this will lead to a rise in income for all.

Unions disagree. They are saying that the evidence of advanced economies over 10 years, shows  tax cuts have not generally led to growth in wages. A paper released by the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU), reveals that OECD data  spanning 2003 to 2016, reveals a disconnection at best and an opposite relationship at worst, between tax cuts and wages growth.

Research by the Australia Institute shows that the top 20 percent of incomes will get 95 percent of the benefit in money terms. In addition, almost wiping out what is left of the progressive nature of the Australian income tax system, will send even more of the benefit upwards. A progressive tax system, is one where those on higher incomes pay a higher proportion, and through this, a portion of national income is redistributed downwards.

Greater inequality is  inevitable. Not only because the less well off have a smaller share, but also, because falling tax revenues must translate into further cuts in government services that benefit the less well off.

Worse still, is that getting the package through, will set the stage to cut company tax and Turnbull has promised to bring this in at the earliest opportunity.

Saving the corporate world from having to pay is not the primary objective. This government knows that those with the biggest obligations under the current rate pay very l...

This Incredibly Accurate Psychology Test Will Reveal Your Deepest Darkest Self "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Designed by Hungarian psychologist Leopold Szondi in the 20th century, this psychology test reveals your deepest, darkest inner self.

Szondi is best known for developing the psychological tool that bears his name, the Szondi test. Having been born in present-day Slovakia, Szondi and his Jewish family were deported to the Bergen-Belsen Concentration Camp on the Kastner train. His family were among a number of prominent intellectuals who were released to Switzerland in December 1944, where Szondi lived out the rest of his life.

The theory behind the study is that we will be bothered most by those characteristics that we possess ourselves and chose to repress at a young age.

The original test created by Szondi included 6 sets with 8 portraits in each set. Each of these portraits represented a different characteristic that is often repressed by those who possess it. These characteristics include: homosexual, a sadist, an epileptic an hysteric, a katatonic, a schizophrenic, a depressive and a maniac.

Instructions:

Look at the eight portraits below, and select the one person that you would never want to meet at night in a dark alleyway. This should be based on which persons appearance creates feelings of disgust or fear. Once you have selected one, read the interpretation listed with the corresponding number below.

 PLEASE NOTE: Please do not misunderstand the results of the test, which dont imply that you have a kind of mental disorder, since the test was designed to make an assumption about the possible repressed impulses of each type of personality in accordance with the psychoanalysis theory.

Definition of Free Trade = Govt is Free to Change the Definition to Freely Get Revenue "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

COMMENT: I live in Alberta, Canada and for years as a sign maker I had to order materials from the United States. I can assure you that the problems you mention are no different than the problems we encounter when buying American products: tariffs; customs duties etc. and as well paying in $US which really hikes our prices. We also sold promotional items, many which we ordered from the States. What a nightmare!  I am now retired and I could go to the States to buy shoes, but why would I? We have shoes here, as a matter of fact, a lot of our friends are now only buying  Canadian products, especially since President Trump has made so many negative remarks about us. I actually thought he was doing great things for the USA, but these digs against Canada are not helping anything.

DC

REPLY: Trumps comment about scuffing up shoe is really ridiculous. The currency exchange defeats and benefit. This whole thing about blurring the distinction between tariffs and customs duties is a global problem. I was flying from Australia to Tokyo and I had to stop in Hawaii. I argued with the customs officer that I was going to Tokyo and then to New York so I should pay the customs duty one time on final entry. He was nasty and said either I paid there or they confiscated my bags. With no choice, I paid. Of course, when I landed in New York and told them I paid the duty in Hawaii, he could care less. They then made me pay it a second time.

This entire issue of trade is a total mess. Trump, in my opinion, does not understand trade and what really is going on. It is becoming outright extortion. If you eliminate the tariffs, they will still demand customs fees. We really need a complete reset. He should simply state that tariffs should end across the board except on defense and food.

Venus Thick Atmosphere Speeds Up the Planet's Spin "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for BoyceMagooglyMonkey

Time is out of joint on Venus. The planet's thick air, which spins much faster than the solid globe, may push against the flanks of mountains and change Venus' rotation rate.

Computer simulations show that the thick Venusian atmosphere, whipping around the planet at 100 meters per second, exerts enough push against a mountain on one side and suction on the other side to speed the planet's rotation rate by about two minutes each Venus day, according to a study in Nature Geoscience June 18.

That's not much, considering that the planet rotates just once every 243 Earth days. By comparison, Venus' atmosphere rotates about once every four Earth days. Precise measurements of the planet's rotation rate have varied by about seven minutes, however. The push and pull of the air over the mountains could help explain the mismatch, with some other force possibly the gravitational influence of the sun slowing the planet's spin back down.

THERE WAS NO SPECIAL CIRCUMSTANCE FOR SHP GOVERNOR SEAT - SEPERATION OF POWERS BREACHED "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by RODERICK KANAMA

Those of you who condemned the actions of the people of Southern Highlands in Mendi should have been more scared about the judiciary being compromised

The demarcation in authority and separation of powers between the three (3) arms of Government the Judiciary, Legislature and the Executive is there to protect against apprehension of bias which may emanate from just the Government acting alone.

Unfortunately, this separation of powers has been breached. Breached in that for the first time in the history of democracy as we know it, ordinary citizens can deduce quite correctly that there is an apprehension of bias in the ruling by the Court.

This is quite evident with the recent burning of the Air Niugini aircraft and the Court House in Mendi, Southern Highlands Province.

In any democracy, a vibrant, exceptionally strong and independent judiciary and legal system, free of any influences, corruptible or otherwise, sworn to uphold the rule of law is a fundamental and essential part of the governance system.

 It becomes very dangerous when the judiciary and the legal system become subverted with external influences. Worse still is if their conduct, direct or inferred, renders their integrity questionable. This is because it will create and nurture an environment for dissent. This has been the case in many African Countries, Middle Eastern and South American Countries where coups, civil unrest and violence have been perpetrated by the general populace against Governments. This has become apparent in PNG.

Special Circumstances? What Special Circumstances? Were those boxes destroyed in a fire or a natural phenomenon that rendered the boxes and their contents unavailable to be counted thus ruling it to be special circumstance?

 Did the contents of the boxes mysteriously disappear without any physical evidence of tampering of the ballot boxes making it impossible to count? If it is neither of these circumstances, it cannot be deemed special circumstance in which case it must be by law.

But what law? Ir could it be that because Gamato may have declared the election of William Powi relying on special circumstance, the Court merely upheld that decision. But this is a case against the decision by Gamato so we go back to the...

New research suggests risk of California earthquake higher than previously thought "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

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. It has long been thought that the central section of the fault line, which stretches 90 miles from San Juan Bautista southward to Parkfield, was creeping steadily in such a way that provided for the safe release of energy. That "creeping" movement, scientists believed, lessened the chances of a huge quake rupturing the entire fault line - but new research casts doubt over old assumptions.

Devastating floods strike Accra, Ghana "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Devastating floods have hit areas around Accra, the capital city of Ghana, after heavy rainfall from 18 June, 2018. The Minister for the Interior, Mr Ambrose Dery, toured of some flood areas in the Accra Metropolis, including Odawna, Dome, Kissieman, Kwabenya, Madina, and communities in Tema.

Separating children from their families is nothing new to the US - it has been doing it for decades "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Outrage over the Trump administration's "zero tolerance" immigration policy appears to have little to do with genuine concerns over human-rights abuses committed by the US government on a routine basis. The Trump administration's Stephen Miller-inspired immigration policy of coercively tearing children from their parents is rightly receiving a hefty load of criticism, even from some of the more traditional Republicans. Some 2,000 children have already been separated from their parents and placed in makeshift government shelters in less than a month and a half, with estimates that this number will continue to rise (and has probably already risen). The outrage over this policy - while blame is still being deflected elsewhere by Donald Trump himself - is understandable and far-reaching indeed, right across the political spectrum.

EPIC! President Trump Trolls Hillary, Schumer and Dems After Signing Executive Order to Keep Families Together at Border (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Trump trolled Obama, Hillary, Schumer and Democrats after signing an Executive Order to keep families together at the border.

President Trump tweeted a video compilation of Obama admitting the immigration system is broken, Schumer clearly stating illegal immigration is wrong and a flashback of Hillary Clinton saying, just because you child gets across the border doesnt mean your child gets to stay.

President Trump brilliantly exposed the Democrats for being the lying, obstructionist hypocrites they are with this video.

The President trolled the Dems by captioning his tweet, Dont worry, the Republicans, and your President, will fix it!

VIDEO:

Democrats on Tuesday rejected a bill that would keep illegal immigrant families together on the border.

Senate Democratic Leader Charles Schumer (N.Y.) on Tuesday dismissed a legislative proposal backed by Republican leaders to keep immigrant families together.

Homeland Security officials say there have been 148 cases where someone fraudulently posed as a family member of children at the U.S. border from October to April.

On Wednesday, at 3PM ET President Trump signed an Executive Order to keep families together at the border, confirms zero-tolerance prosecution policy will stay in place.

Scientists find evidence of 27 new viruses in bees "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

An international team of researchers has discovered evidence of 27 previously unknown viruses in bees. The finding could help scientists design strategies to prevent the spread of viral pathogens among these important pollinators.

Populations of bees around the world are declining, and viruses are known to contribute to these declines, said David Galbraith, research scientist at Bristol Myers Squibb and a recent Penn State graduate. Despite the importance of bees as pollinators of flowering plants in agricultural and natural landscapes and the importance of viruses to bee health, our understanding of bee viruses is surprisingly limited.

To investigate viruses in bees, the team collected samples of DNA and RNA, which is responsible for the synthesis of proteins, from 12 bee species in nine countries across the world. Next, they developed a novel high-throughput sequencing technique that efficiently detected both previously identified and 27 never-seen-before viruses belonging to at least six new families in a single experiment. The results appear in the June 11, 2018, issue of Scientific Reports.

Just Listen To Wonkette, Will You: Fuck his fucking executive order "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I (and probably will) write up an analysis of the Flores v Reno consent decree and how Trump has been using it to justify child ICE-olation and how the current executive order conflicts with the requirements of that settlement, but I dont have the time to do the job I want to do this afternoon. So for now just listen to Wonkette:

So basically, the Trump administration wants to thumb its nose at Flores and indefinitely detain mommies and daddies seeking asylum and babies over a FUCKING MISDEMEANOR. Indeed the order literally instructs the attorney general to beg the courts to say violating Flores is OK and babies can stay in jail with mommy and daddy for A LOT LONGER, because thats what the Trump administration is stomping its feet and clapping its hands for. Hey, maybe they can live in concentration camps, like one big happy family, at least until Trump can figure out a way to Finally Solve the whole problem!

Josh Marshall from Talking Points Memo and Wonkette agree that litigation is inevitable, and Trump is going to lose at trial on a bunch of key issues. Probably on appeal, too. But for Trump, thats a feature. His executive order puts the lie to the idea that child ICEolation was mandated by laws passed by Democrats, but if he can lose quickly enough in court, hell be able to rapidly pivot to blaming unaccountable, unelected judges.

Nothing says, I love America like hating on the US Constitutions Article I, Article III, Article VI clause 2, and Eighth Amendment.

Trumps Cowardly War on Immigrant Children "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Editors note: After this article was filed, President Trump signed an executive order Wednesday ending the practice of separating children from families detained crossing the U.S. border illegally. Author Scott Ritter comments: Trumps executive order is an empty shell. The language is loose and kids will still be separated and imprisoned apart from their parents.

Like clockwork, every Sunday night I talk to my parents (by way of explanation, I live in New York, they reside in Rancho Mirage, Californiaa distance that makes in-person discussions somewhat difficult to manage). After catching up on family news, inevitably our conversation devolves into politics. I had (infamously, in my moms view) predicted Donald Trumps victory in the 2016 presidential election shortly after the Democratic National Convention in July of that year, citing Hillary Clintons shortcomings as a candidate more than Trumps positives. My mom, a Clinton supporter, was aghast that I could side with such a fundamentally flawed character as Trump. In the time Trump has held office, Mom has unfailingly sought to remind me of the presidents obvious (in her mind) failings as a leader and a human being. Our last conversation was pretty much along the same lineswishing my dad a happy Fathers Day, talking about my nieces graduation from high school and her future college prospects, the U.S. Open, andinevitablyTrump.

Normally, I laugh my way through this part of the conversation. This time, however, we were discussing the ongoing policy of separating children from the parents of immigrants who illegally cross into U.S. territory. While I am far more liberal on immigration policy than President Trump, I respect the fact that he was elected as the chief executive and as such is responsible for setting policy. I was perturbed at Congress for failing to jump at the presidents offer to clear the way for more than a million immigrants to legalize their status in exchange for providing him with the funds needed to build a border wall, which was the centerpiece of his presidential campaign. However, like my mom, I was (and am) aghast at what is happening along the U.S.-Mexico border todaybetween mid-April and the end of May of this year, 1,995 children have been physically separated from their parents at the border. Hundreds more have been taken away since then.

Domestic politics is not my comfort zoneIll take weapons of mass destruction and arms control issues over health care and tax policy any day of the week. After I articulated my disdain for the current policy, however, my mom challenged me. You write about all these other issues, she said. Why dont you write about this one? I threw....

[VIDEO] Child Knocks Over Statue; Parents May Be Forced To Pay $132K "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A child who was caught on video knocking down a statue may have just cost his parents $132,000. The statue was an art piece at a community center.

The incident took place while the family was at a wedding reception.  According to Inside Edition, in the video of the unfortunate event, two children play around with the sculpture before one of the kids hugs the sculpture and it falls to the floor.  It looks a little more like the child attempted to climb the statue at the time it fell almost on top of him.

The childrens parents were reportedly in another room at the Tomahawk Ridge Community Center in Overland Park, Kansas attending the wedding reception when the incident happened on May 18.

We are not billing the family. Its our insurance company reaching out to their insurance company, Sean Reilly, a spokesperson for the community center, told Inside Edition.

The statue was being loaned to the community center and the $132,000 fee is to pay for the total cost of the piece. The childs mom, Sarah Goodman, told ABC15 she received a letter from the centers insurance company saying they owed the money because they were negligent for not monitoring their children.

My children are well supervised but all people get distracted, Goodman said. On the other hand, Reilly told Inside Edition that the two boys in the video were running around for quite some time.  Goodman also pointed out that there was nothing to protect the statue while Reilly said the statue was secure. Its not designed to be climbed upon, Reilly said.

Goodman told ABC15 she ha...

Public servants paid too well? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Taxpayers Union has some facts to dampen public sector wage claims:

Over the last 25 years, public sector incomes have grown much faster than the private sector, while public sector employees also enjoy a higher rate of sick leave costing taxpayers $173 million, according to Public Sector Wage Gap: The taxpayer-funded premium for working for the government, a new report weve released today.

If you work for the Government, you earn a third more on average, with taxpayers footing the bill.

This report seriously undermines the public sector unions claim for 9-15 percent pay hikes for their members. It blows to bits claims the last Government did not pay bureaucrats enough.

The public sector pay gap nearly doubled since the 1990s. If anything, a wage freeze, not hikes, would be fairer.

Left wing activists and unions would have the public believe that the public sector has undergone nine years of neoliberal hell. But this shows that to be a lie.

Public servants generally have better job security than those in the private sector.

They are also supposed to have a commitment to public service.

Both these factors ought to be reflected in lower pay rates than in the private sector.

Key findings of the report:

  • The gap in weekly earnings between the public and private sectors has grown since 1990, from 18.9% of private sector earnings to 34.6% in 2017. The gap peaked in 2010 at 38.4%. The premium is even higher for hourly earnings (as public sector employees, on average, work fewer hours).
  • If the Government had retained a public sector earnings premium of 20%, taxpayers would save $2.5 billion per year, or $1,445 per household in lower taxes or reduced Government debt.
  • The public sector took an average of 8.6 and 8.4 days of sick leave in 2016 and 2017, compared to the private sector average of 4.7 days per year.
  • If the public sector reduced its rates of sick leave to private sector levels, the taxpayers would save $173 million per year, or approximately $100 per household per year in lower taxes, or reduced Government debt.

Is there something in the public sector that causes more sickness, are public servants less healthy than those in the pr...

Declassified Paranormal FBI Files

 Adamski, George  [286 Pages, 193.5MB] George Adamski (17 April 1891 23 April 1965) was a Polish American citizen who became widely known in ufology circles, and to some degree in popular culture, after he claimed to have photographed spaceships from other planets, met with friendly Nordic alien Space Brothers, and to have taken flights with them to the Moon and other planets. He was the first, and most famous, of the so-called contactees of the 1950s. Adamski called himself a philosopher, teacher, student and saucer researcher, although most investigators concluded his claims were an elaborate hoax, and that Adamski himself was a con artist. Adamski authored three books describing his meetings with Nordic aliens and his travels with them aboard their spaceships: Flying Saucers Have Landed (co-written with Desmond Leslie) in 1953, Inside the Space Ships in 1955, and Flying Saucers Farewell in 1961. The first two books were both bestsellers; by 1960 they had sold a combined 200,000 copies.

Suppressed Study: The EPA Underestimated Dangers of Widespread Chemicals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A major environmental health study that had been suppressed by the Trump administration because of the public relations nightmare it might cause the Pentagon and other polluters has been quietly released online.

The U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention published the controversial 852-page review of health dangers from a family of chemicals known as perfluoroalkyl substances, or PFAS manmade chemicals used in everything from carpets and frying pan coatings to military firefighting foams on its website this morning, and will publish a notice in the Federal Register tomorrow.

The study upends federally accepted notions for how much of these chemicals are safe for people recommending an exposure limit for one of the compounds that is 10 times lower than what the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency has maintained is the safe threshold, and seven times lower for another compound. The stricter exposure thresholds are similar to those established by state health agencies in New Jersey and Michigan. All told, the report offers the most comprehensive gathering of information on the effects of these chemicals today, and suggests theyre far more dangerous than previously thought.

PFAS compounds are proving to be pervasive in public water systems and around military bases across the country. The report describes health effects associated with exposure, including cancer, liver damage, decreased fertility, increased risk of asthma and thyroid disease in humans. Notably, it describes how daily consumption of extremely low doses of the chemicals appeared to have an effect on rats and mice tested in labs including delayed eye opening in newborns and lower body weight, as well as changes to brain activity and skeletal composition. The CDC assumes that humans are more sensitive to the effects of substances than animals in setting limits. The report also expanded the focus of research from the two most well-known PFAS chemicals to include 12 others.

China can seriously hurt America in the escalating trade war "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The threat of a full-scale trade war between the US and China has dominated the news in recent weeks. The countries have exchanged import tariffs on each other's goods, and are threatening further protective steps. After numerous threats to tax Chinese imports, US President Donald Trump fired the first shot by approving $50 billion in tariffs that will come into force on July 6. Beijing immediately responded by imposing a 25-percent tariff on American imports worth $34 billion, which will come into effect on the same day. Trump issued a threat to impose additional 10-percent levies on $200 billion of Chinese goods coming to the US. This prompted a pledge from China's Commerce Ministry to "forcefully fight back" with "qualitative" and "quantitative" measures. The mutual exchange came two months after the White House slapped China and several other nations, including Russia and India, with an import tax of 25 percent on steel and 10 percent on aluminum. In late May, the measure was extended to the EU, Canada and Mexico. Now that everyone's cards are on the table, the question is what else China can do to protect itself and minimize damages in this fierce fight between the world's two largest economies. Let's explore the possibilities.

Trump Trudeau Trade & Tariffs "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Many countries charge you for goods you buy overseas not just Canada. One of our girls in Germany was called down to pay tax on clothes her mother bought and sent her for Christmas. One Canadian friend visited and left his coat. I mailed it back to him and they demand an import duty. Trumps comments about scuffing up shoes is perhaps a dramatization. Americans will get the same treatment coming back from Europe. They always look at my watch and ask if I purchased it overseas. I have had it for years and show them the scratches. They then leave me alone.

What I do agree with is that so many countries are using duties as if they are tariffs. Even when we shipped some supplies back from a Vancouver conference, the US made me pay import taxes to get back the same stuff that was produced in the USA. So we were taxed by Canada to ship it in, then taxed by American when we shipped it back. It was not tens of thousands of dollars to warrant lawyers. A few hundred and you just pay because the red tape is worse and time-consuming.

This is becoming standard for all countries. It makes it very difficult for us when we hold conferences outside the USA. This is all part of the hunt for money.

As far as Trump and his trade war posture, he is following the standard nonsense about trade that dominates everything since World War II. This is still the mercantilist-economic model. This dominate so many political minds it is absurd. This is allocating trade simply where the last assembly is conducted. If we allocate trade according to the flag the company flies, then the USA has the largest trade SURPLUS in the world $1.4 trillion. It is just that American companies have offshore offices conducting business around the world like Apple, Microsoft, and even ourselves. So how we even measure trade is debatable.

I personally am against trade war but for none of the reasons publicly stated. There are few industries that should be protected and that is arms-manufacturer and agriculture. Why? Because we need to defend ourselves and we ne...

Corruption at the Assembly Committee Gutted California's Net Neutrality "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the morning before S.B. 822 was to get its first hearing in front of a California Assembly committee before the cameras were on to catch it, the Chair of the Assembly Committee on Communications and Conveyance introduced and got a vote on amendments that substantially weakened the net neutrality provisions of S.B. 822. EFF received word that was his intent and we were disappointed he would carry out such a bait and switch on behalf of AT&T and Comcast.

Chair Miguel Santiago, along with seven other Assembly members both Republican and Democratic, voted for those amendments. Amendments proposed at 10 pm the night before the hearing. Amendments voted on before the bill was heard and before the bills author, State Sen. Scott Wiener, could argue against them. Amendments voted on before the witnesses and Wiener could argue for the bill as written.

This comes after the committee chair refused a move to join S.B. 822 and S.B. 460 so that there was a single net neutrality package rather than two bills. That proposal was rejected in favor of new amendments that stripped net neutrality protections right out including provisions that banned discriminatory zero rating that hurt low income Internet users.

Assemblymembers Quirk-Silva, Kamlager-Dove, Holden, Bonta, and Low abstained or were absent while the remaining Democratic and Republican Assembly members joined together to vote in hostile amendments that gutted a whole array of consumer protections of the bill.

Here are just some of the things they green-lighted with their amendment:

  • AT&T can continue to violate net neutrality under its zero rating program and will have even more power to discriminate over the internet with its ownership of Time Warner.
  • Comcast can create arbitrary charges on all websites and services simply for the "privilege" of allowing its customers to connect to those websites and services, which has been banned under federal law for years.
  • Comcast will be free to engage in past abuses over the interconnection market that resulted in consumer access to video services being slowed down arbitrarily in exchange for extortion fees.

Did Scientists Just Find a Missing Piece of the Universe? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It would be silly to think we completely understand our universe, given how small the Earth is compared to the vastness of the cosmos. But from here on our tiny planet, it appears that much of the universe is missing. And Im not just talking about dark matter. Regular stuff seems to be missing, too.

Astronomy fans probably know that as far as humans can tell, the universe is composed mostly of some mysterious, unexplained energy called dark energy that pushes it apart. The remaining piece, about a quarter, is dark matter, another unexplained thing that seems to build the universes skeleton. Just 4 percent is the regular matter that we can see: stars, planets, and interstellar and intergalactic gas. But the observed amount of this regular matter still falls perhaps a third short of the amount of stuff that physicists think should exist based on their models of the universe.

Ever feel like there's something sinister lurking behind the crunchy granola, yoga-loving, avocado-eating facade of your fellow Californians? Now there's research to back you up. California is among the two U.S. states with the highest concentration of psychopaths, according to a working study from Southern Methodist University released on the Social Science Research network this week. The study looks at trends in personality traits across areas (the study hasn't yet gone through the full peer review process, so take the findings with a grain of salt). The only places with more psychopaths? Connecticut (thanks, hedge funds!) and, shocker, the District of Columbia. Other highly psychopathic states include New Jersey, New York and Wyoming, while West Virginia, Vermont and Tennessee are among the least psychopathic states. 'The presence of psychopaths in District of Columbia is consistent with the conjecture found in Murphy (2016) that psychopaths are likely to be effective in the political sphere," the author writes.

ON KELVIN DAVIS "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If I were a generous cove I'd cut Kelvin Davis some slack on the basis that he's still finding his feet as a Minister of the Crown ... but I'm not so I won't.

Many would have it that he got appointed as the Deputy Leader of the Labour Party as a sop to Maori.   One thing for certain ... he certainly didn't get it on ability because his performance in the House characterised by his inability to answer questions and a tendancy to take refuge in pigeon Maori when under pressure has been sufficient for him to be ordered into the witless protection program while his failure as Minister of Corrections to get to grips with his portfolio has become an embarrassment to his colleagues.

Judith Collins introduced double bunking in prisons and week after week Labour, led by Davis, railed against that as inhuman.   One might reasonably be forgiven for assuming that double bunking was a no no for that Party.    Then last week came the grand announcement by Davis of a rebuild for Waikeria Prison as an alternative to the proposed new 'super-max' facility favoured by National.    But hold on, under questioning Davis was forced to reveal that double bunking was a feature of the rebuild ... now, some commentators, less kind than I, have suggested a certain hypocrisy by Davis given his track record of opposition to double bunking ... but far be it for me to comment on that.

It  got worse however ... under further questioning Davis was forced to admit there existed contingency plans for prisoners to sleep on the floor in prison gymnasia should the muster fail to drop after proposed changes to the bail and sentencing laws come into effect.

Mr Davis is presiding over a clusterf**k all of his own making.    He may have been a moderately successful principal of a small intermediate school in Kaitaia but as a Minister with significant portfolio responsibilities he is clearly out of his depth.    Chances are he won't be improving with age much like a cask of cheap wine ... take the analogy further ... how long before his colleagues go sour on him?

Crooked Hillary Begs For Money to Fight Trumps Cruel Immigration Policy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On Wednesday, Crooked Hillary continued to beg for donations to combat Trumps cruel immigration policy.

Never let a [fake] crisis go to waste, right?

Hillary Clinton, one of the most corrupt, criminal liars to ever hold public office in this country had the nerve to cite a Bible verse and beg for money this week from her Twitter account to fight against current immigration laws that separate illegal alien children from parents at the border.

This exact law was in place during the Obama years, but now since Trump is president, it is suddenly a humanitarian crisis and Republicans are evil for allowing it to happen.

We have no definitive proof the children are even related to the adults they show up with at the border which only encourages child trafficking.

In fact, Saagar Enjeti from The Daily Caller reports, single males with children are increasingly arriving. Neither the child nor the adult can answer basic questions about each other, authorities suspect rampant fraud.

Hillary celebrated raising over $500,000 off of the medias manufactured border crisis.

Sault Ste. Marie Chairpersons Statement on Policy of Separating Children at Border "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published June 20, 2018

SAULT STE. MARIE, Mich.  Aaron Payment, chairperson of the Sault Ste. Marie Tribe of Chippewa Indians, issued the following statement on the Trump administrations zero-tolerance immigration policy:

Unfortunately, American Indians know all too well the trauma induced by federal policy that separated our children from their families and tribal nations. The pedagogy for Indian boarding schools in the late 1800s was,

Kill the Indian to save the man.

There are so many parallels to the current crisis of internment of innocent immigrant children with Indian boarding schools and forced reservation policy. Indian boarding schools even had their own cemeteries.

Aaron Payment, vice president of National Congress of American Indians

You would think that in this century we would be far removed from such practices at the hands of the federal government. The President of the United States just announced his intent to withdraw from the United Nations Human Rights Council. Warning signs were evident in the 1930s with German nationalism just before the Holocaust. What further signs do we need to see before the collective consciousness of Americans awakes to understand what is happening?

Tribes are non-partisan.

The welfare of our most vulnerable in our territories should not be partisan.

It is incumbent upon each and every one of us, Christians, traditionals, the indigenous people and the rest (ironically descendants of immigrants) to adopt a more humane policy with respect to immigrant children.

Seattle Activists Regroup After Amazon, Other Corporations Defeat Tax To Fund Affordable Housing "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Seattle City Council Member Kshama Sawant and activist organizations are regrouping after a head tax on Amazon and other large corporations was repealed in May.

All nine Seattle City Council members voted unanimously in favor of enacting a head tax of $275 on all full-time employees from the citys highest grossing corporations. The tax would have funded an average of $47 million annually for affordable housing and homeless services.

Shortly after it passed the city council, Amazon, Starbucks, and other Seattle corporations heavily funded a No Tax on Jobs campaign to repeal the tax, which included hiring canvassers to collect signatures for a ballot referendum in November. Amazon and Starbucks donated $25,000 to the campaign.

The campaign by corporations led the Seattle City Council to swiftly repeal the tax in a 7-2 vote on June 12.

Theres no sugar-coating it. We lost, said Katie Wilson, general secretary of the Seattle Transit Riders Union. There is simply no acceptable solution but for big businesses and the wealthy to start chipping in. They cant avoid this social responsibility forever, and well keep working to make sure that day of reckoning comes sooner rather than later.

Amazon has a history of paying petition canvassers to gather signatures in favor of policies that benefit their business.

In 2011, the Los Angeles Times reported Amazon paid petition workers to collect signatures in front of retail store competitors to overturn a law that stipulated Amazon must charge state sales taxes on its products. Amazon ultimately settled with California legislators to delay collecting sales tax for a year.

Despite Amazons opposition to paying taxes, it has immensely benefited from taxpayer subsidies.

A study published by the Economic Policy Institute in February 2018 found by the end of 2016, Amazon had likely received over $1 billion in state and local subsidies for its facilities. Contrary to the perceived economic benefits of Amazons fulfillment centers, the study also found the opening of new fulfillment centers did not improve local employment rates or wages.

This Is America #11: Portland Occupation Evicts ICE, #Juneteenth "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Welcome to This Is America, June 20th, 2018.

#OccupyICEPDX

On todays show, we were lucky enough to catch up to someone with the Portland General Defense Committee (GDC) who was on the scene of the growing occupation at the Portland ICE facility.

On Sunday, as people in McAllen, Texas were in the thousands converging on the immigrant detention center were families were being separated, another group of people were mobilizing for a vigil in Portland, Oregon. As the evening wore on, people opted to camp outside of the building, and an occupation quickly evolved to include people camping around the various entrances and exits of the building. The occupation also stopped the ability of ICE agents to leave the facility. At one point, one person came out of the building to plead for those still inside saying ironically, They just want to go home to their families.

The occupation then continued on into Tuesday, which is when we were able to interview the Portland GDC member. Right before our interview took place, a swarm of DHS agents armed with semi-automatic weapons and riot gear converged on the space, in order to help evacuate the remaining ICE agents; many of which covered their faces as they left, and many officers had to leave the cars in the parking lot.

This is What Canon's Largest CMOS Sensor Looks Like Next to a DSLR "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for takyon

Think medium format CMOS sensors are big? Check out[*] what Canon's largest sensor looks like when placed next to a DSLR camera (an EOS Rebel T3i/600D).

[...] Canon first unveiled its humongous, ultra-sensitive, ultra-resolution CMOS sensor back in August 2010, saying that it would open new doors in various academic and industrial fields.

"A certain level of light is required when shooting with a digital camera or camcorder, and without it, images cannot be captured due to insufficient sensitivity," Canon writes. "In the pursuit of further improving the sensitivity of imaging elements, Canon has embraced the challenge of achieving higher levels of sensitivity and larger element sizes while maintaining high-speed readout performance, and has succeeded in developing the world's largest class of CMOS image sensor measuring approximately 20 cm square."

U.S. Marine to Be Imprisoned Over Involvement With Hate Groups "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Vasillios Pistolis, a United States Marine Corps lance corporal who ProPublica and Frontline identified as a neo-Nazi and assailant during last Augusts bloody white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, has been convicted at a court martial on charges of disobeying orders and making false statements.

Pistolis, 19, will be imprisoned for a month, docked pay and reduced in rank to private first class, and then likely forced from the Corps, according to a USMC spokesman.

Pistolis, a water support technician, was treated as low-level offender by military authorities, who tried him at what is known as a summary court martial, which is akin to a misdemeanor trial. 

The Marine Corps  and every other branch of service has regulations barring members from participating in racial extremist groups, but military officials offered no specific details about what prompted the court martial. Pistolis is assigned to the 2nd Marine Logistics group, which operates out of Camp Lejeune, a large installation on the North Carolina coast. Public affairs officers with the logistics group issued a brief press release about the court martial, but did not respond to repeated requests for comment from ProPublica and Frontline. 

Pistolis had been slated to serve with the Marines through 2020, but Maj. Brian Block, a Marine Corps spokesman at the Pentagon, said Pistolis was being processed for separation from the Corps.

Efforts to contact Pistolis were not successful. It was unclear if he entered any plea or made any statements during his court martial. During earlier interviews with ProPublica and Frontline, Pistolis acknowledged that he had alt-right or white supremacist beliefs, but denied that he was in Charlottesville and said he was no longer involved with any white power group.

Last month, ProPublica and Frontline revealed Pistolis involvement with the Atomwaffen Division and Traditionalist Worker Party, two of the most militant groups in the neo-Fascist movement. In the past 13 months, Atomwaffen Division members and associates have been charged in five murders and a bomb plot

Pistolis involvement in both groups was extensively documented in online chat logs and his own social media presence. In...

From the University of Leicester in England:

Strange sponge-like fossil creature from half a billion years ago

June 19, 2018

Summary: A discovery of a new species of sponge-like fossil from the Cambrian Period sheds light on early animal evolution.

Scientists have discovered the fossil of an unusual large-bodied sponge-like sea-creature from half a billion years ago.

The creature belongs to an obscure and mysterious group of animals known as the chancelloriids, and scientists are unclear about where they fit in the tree of life.

They represent a lineage of spiny tube-shaped animals that arose during the Cambrian evolutionary explosion but went extinct soon afterwards. In some ways they resemble sponges, a group of simple filter-feeding animals, but many scientists have dismissed the similarities as superficial.

The new discovery by a team of scientists from the University of Leicester, the University of Oxford and Yunnan University, China, adds new evidence that could help solve the mystery.

The researchers have published their findings in the Royal Society journal Proceedings of the Royal Society B. The Leicester authors are Tom Harvey, Mark Williams, David Siveter & Sarah Gabbott.

The new species, named Allonnia nuda, was discovered in the Chengjiang deposits of Yunnan Province, China. It was surprisingly large in life (perhaps up to 50 cm or more) but had only a few very tiny spines. Its unusual naked appearance suggests that further specimens may be hiding in plain sight in fossil collections, and shows that this group was more diverse than previously thought.

Furthermore, the new species holds clues ab...

Trump signs order to stop separating families at border "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Government officials familiar with early drafts say the executive order would allow families to be held in immigration detention together.

President Donald Trump, under pressure from angry members of his own party, signed on Wednesday an executive order that is meant to keep families together at the border, halting a policy he instituted earlier this year.

Its about keeping families together while ensuring we have a powerful border, Trump said of the order.

Trump said the order will solve that problem of children being separated from their parents, but that it wouldnt end his administrations zero tolerance policy of charging everyone who attempts to cross the U.S.-Mexico border illegally, a decision that led to the current crisis.

I didnt like sight of families being separated, Trump said.

Earlier in the day, Trump had said hed be doing something thats somewhat pre-emptive and ultimately will be matched by legislation Im sure, after he was asked if he wanted to try to keep to families together at the U.S. border.

Trump did not disclose exactly what he would be signing, but an administration official confirmed to NBC News that an executive order had been drafted by the departments of Justice and Homeland Security to temporarily stop separating children from the parents of people detained at the border.

Government officials familiar with early drafts of the executive order also told NBC News it would allow families to be detained together but would not stop the zero tolerance policy of charging people with a misdemeanor for entering illegally.

Several administration officials say the executive order would allow families to be held in immigration detention together. That will run up against a longstanding federal court decree that prohibits the government from holding children in detention for long periods generally around 20 days.

The order will also move up hearings for families in detention, putting them at the head of the line, to speed up that processing, officials said.

A CNC Plasma Cutter Table, From The Shop Floor Up "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Some projects are simple, some focus on precision and craftsmanship, and some are more of the quick-and-dirty variety. This home-built CNC plasma cutter table seems to follow a go big or go home philosophy, and we have to say were mighty impressed by the finished product.

For those who follow [Bob]s Making Stuff YouTube channel, this build has been a long time coming. The playlist below has eight videos that cover the entire process from cutting the first tubes of the welded frame to the initial test cuts with the finished machine. [Bob] took great pains to make the frame as square and flat as possible, to the extent of shimming a cross member to correct a 0.030 misalignment before welding. He used good-quality linear rails for each axis, and hefty NEMA 23 steppers. There were a few false starts, like the water pan that was going to be welded out of five separate pieces of steel until the metal shop guys saved the day with their press brake. In the end, the machine turned out great; with a build cost of $2000 including the plasma cutter its not exactly cheap, but its quite a bargain compared to similar sized commercial machines.

We think the video series is a great guide for anyone looking to make a CNC plasma table. Weve seen builds like this before, including [This Old Tony]s CNC router. Watching these builds gives us the itch to get into the shop and start cutting metal.

When The Parties Undermine Their Own Candidates "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Tony Crdenas had no problem winning his heavily Democratic San Fernado Valley reelection bid, despite credible accusations that he he sexually assaulted a 16-year-old girl and threatened to fire her father if she squealed. Last month an L.A. Superior Court judge ruled that there is "a reasonable and meritorious basis" for the suit to go forward but Pelosi quashed it in Congress. He's definitely not getting the Al Franken treatment.

Crdenas' district gave Trump a mere 16.8% of its vote in 2016 and the unassailable PVI is D+29. In the primary about 2 weeks ago, despite being a child molestor, Crdenas scored 67% against Republican Benito Bernal (18%) and Democrat Joseph Shammas (8%). There wasn't a peep out of Pelosi or her DCCC. Funny, because when the decode to destroy a candidate, they certainly know how to do it. And not just Laura Moser.

In Orange County, the DCCC released all kinds of sex allegations against their own recruit, Hans Keirstead, who seems to have won the CA-48 race, leaving the DCCC in a really awkward position. And despite Archie Parnell handily winning his South Carolina primary, the DCCC is poisoning the atmosphere against him for allegations by his then-wife made in a 1973 divorce filing.

The DCCC communications director, Meredith Kelly, who also led the charge against other Democrats the DCCC has trying to destroy told the media that "What Archie Parnell did is inexcusable and deeply disturbing, and he should drop out of this race immediately."

SWP: using incentives to lift recruiter performance "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Seasonal Worker Programme (SWP) continues to grow. Figures for this financial year to the end of April 2018 show 6,573 SWP visas have been approved. This compares with 6,166 visas approved in total for the full 2016-17 financial year. Moreover, most workers do very well under the scheme. When the World Bank asked 400 Pacific workers how satisfied they were with the SWP, the average score was 8.6, on a scale of one to ten. Similar smaller surveys of Timorese workers found that 96% were satisfied, with 68% very satisfied. In Vanuatu, a survey of 100 returned workers showed that all of the women and 91% of men were satisfied.

That said, this is no time for complacency. It is not clear that arrangements that support a few thousand workers will support the much larger number that could enter Australia both under the Seasonal Worker Programme and the much larger Pacific Labour Scheme. Moreover, while some countries are doing very well under the SWP (Vanuatu, Tonga, Timor-Leste), others are missing out (PNG, Solomon Islands).

The SWP also continues to be subjected to both generalised and specific claims of exploitation in the media. There are also complaints about recruiters in sending countries scamming potential workers. These incidents undermine the development benefits of the scheme, as well as wider community acceptance of the value of the SWP in Australia and in sending countries.

In responding to these problems, so far the focus has been on compliance across the horticultural industry, which is appropriate given the higher number of backpackers working on farms, and their greater risk of exploitation. Victoria, Queensland and South Australia are all introducing labour hire licensing.

There are also SWP-specific responses. One recently-announced reform is the piloting of a 24/7 information line for seasonal workers. It success will depend on how well the information the hotline receives is processed and acted on.

These are all positive moves, but what more could be done? A recent book Merchants of Labor: Recruiters and International Labor Migration by Professor Philip Martin reviews the global experience of the approximately ten million workers who cross international borders...

4 Urban Lessons from a Cross-Country Music Tour "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Pierce Turcotte is a Strong Towns podcast listener who just wrapped up a 29 city tour with his band, The Greeting Committee. Today he's sharing some lessons he learned along the way.


On April 9th, I left my home near Kansas City with the rest of my bandmates and embarked on a month-and-a-half long tour across the United States. With six people stuffed into a fifteen-passenger van, hauling a trailer full of music gear to twenty-nine different cities, spirits were high.

Our band is called The Greeting Committee, and we fall into the up-and-coming category. We first met in high school and, after picking up momentum with our local alternative radio station, started to play more and more shows, mostly opening up for other bands. Almost four years into playing as a band, were starting to get longer and more frequent tours. 

Our most recent tour, opening up for Jukebox the Ghost, earned us our longest tour yet. Over the course of the tour, I got to experience 29 different cities across America. Granted, my time in each individual city is fairly transient and consists mostly of the day of the show, but I still cram those days with as much exploring as I can. This has allowed me to see some really diverse and beautiful places, and to get a glimpse of what each one
