Dutch banks customers unknowingly profit from palm oil companies "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Dutch banks ABN AMRO, ING and Rabobank are failing to inform their customers that investment funds they offer include shares in palm oil companies damaging the environment in Indonesia, according to a new report by Milieudefensie (Friends of the Earth Netherlands). Some of these funds have been labeled as sustainable, despite having shares in companies with a track record of misconduct, according to the report, titled Investment Funds: The untold story about the link between Dutch banks and industrial palm oil companies. The report examines the links between the three Dutch banks and a selection of mostly Indonesian palm oil companies and conglomerates. Although not all of the 81 selected palm oil companies have similar social and environmentally abusive practices, the researchers write, the industrial palm oil industry as a whole remains rife with controversy and human rights violations in the production chain. These problems, such as deforestation, environmental degradation, pollution and the exploitation of workers, were described in another report published recently by Friends of the Earth Netherlands, titled Draw The Line: A black book about the shady investments of Dutch Banks into palm oil. Palm oil can be found in an endless array of supermarket products, including shampoo, soap, peanut butter, chocolate spread, milk powder, pizza and chips. Pungkat in Sumatra is an example of a village that suffers from the effects of the palm oil industry, activists say. Before, the villagers could drink water and eat fish from the river, says Devi Indriani, an advocacy and campaign

Federal Judge Strikes Down Obamacare, 2479 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This is a paid sponsorship by: - Trade Genius Academy. It pays for itself. See their Black Friday Specials at: https://www.TradeGeniusAcademy.com Good evening, Im still reporting on: Federal Judge Strikes Down Obamacare, 2479 Synopsis: Good evening. A federal judge in Texas has ruled that ObamaCare aka the Affordable Care Act is unconstitutional just one day before the deadline to sign up for coverage for the coming year. The judge ruled that the individual mandate is what is unconstitutional forcing people to buy an insurance product, even if they dont want to bet against their health in any way. This argument was offered as a reason not to pass the bill in the first place, but Obama steam-roller tended to ignore such niceities as the U.S. Constitution back in them there days. Writing in his opinion, Judge Reed OConnor, an appointee of President George W. Bush, observed that the U.S. Constitution does not allow the mandate to stand. Back in 2012, the Supremes upheld the mandate claiming that it was part of Congresss power to tax. But, last year, Congress removed the fine for failing to comply with that tax, and without the mandate, the program could not pay for itself. Judge OConnor ruled that since the mandate is an essential part of the ACA, the entire law is unconstitutional SUPPORT OUR SPONSORS: - Noble Gold - Better grab some rolls of these beautiful Morgan Silver Dollars before they are gone.

The IDF announced Saturday it had demolished the family home of a Palestinian man charged with killing Israeli soldier Staff Sgt. Ronen Lubarsky earlier this year.

The IDF detonated explosives in the four-story building inhabited by the family of Islam Yousef Abu Hamid in the al-Amari refugee camp close to Ramallah.

In a statement, the IDF said clashes broke out when Israeli forces entered the camp to carry out the order, with dozens of Palestinians throwing rocks at the troops and troops responding with crowd dispersal methods. No injuries were reported.

Mahmoud Al-Aloul, deputy chairman of the Fatah party, expressed support for Hamids family and said the Palestinian Authority would pay for the home to be rebuilt, the Walla news site reported.

The camp is densely populated, and the military reportedly had to cordon off a large area for the demolition to take place.

Version of PM Mays deal can get through parliament: Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt says "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If not, the country will face serious trouble.

Foreign Secretary Jeremy Hunt said on Saturday that the British parliament could back Prime Minister Theresa Mays deal if lawmakers received assurances from the European Union, but warned that a no deal Brexit was still on the table.

Hunt said the EU was likely to make concessions to avoid Britain leaving without any deal. (File/AFP)

.
May pulled a vote on her deal this week after acknowledging it would be heavily defeated over concerns about the divorce agreements backstop, an insurance policy designed to avoid any hard land border for Ireland but which critics say could bind Britain to EU rules indefinitely.

.

.
Following a summit in Brussels on Friday, May said it was possible that the EU could give further guarantees that the backstop would be temporary although the blocs other 27 leaders told her they would not renegotiate the treaty.

.
Hunt said the EU was likely to make concessions to avoid Britain leaving without any deal, a scenario that both sides say would be highly damaging for business and their economies.

.
The EU cannot be sure that if they choose not to be helpful and flexible that we would not end up with no deal, Hunt said. We cannot in these negotiations take no deal off the table. I dont think the EU could be remotely sure that if we dont find a way through this we wouldnt end up with no deal.

.
The Times newspaper reported on Saturday that most of Mays senior ministerial team thought her deal was dead and were discussing a range of options including a second referendum.

.
Brexit is in danger of getting stuck and that is something that should worry us all, pensions minister Amber Rudd wrote in the Daily Mail newspaper.

.
If MPs (lawmakers) dig in against the Prime Ministers deal and then hunker down in their different corners, none with a majority, the country will face serious trouble.

Former Hamas chief calls for guerrilla warfare to liberate West Bank and all Palestine "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Khaled Mashaal says resistance is pinnacle of life and defines Palestinians: I resist, therefore I am

Khaled Mashaal speaks in Doha, Qatar, August 28, 2014. (AP/Osama Faisal)

The former leader of the Hamas terror group has called on West Bank Palestinians to prepare for guerrilla warfare in the West Bank and ongoing resistance to force Israel to retreat from the territory.

Khaled Mashaal said this would be a step on the way to its retreat from all of Palestine.

Speaking on the Al-Jazeera TV network on December 2, Mashaal, in a play on Ren Descartes famous philosophical proposition, said: The Palestinians say I resist, therefore I am.

In comments translated by the Middle East Media Research Institute, Mashaal said that according to the Quran, Jihad, resistance, and self-defense [are] the essence of life.

The abandonment of Jihad leads to humiliation and death. Hence, resistance is the pinnacle of life. A person who lives under occupation, and who does not resist, is in fact dead.

Mashaal, who headed Hamass political bureau between 1996 and 2017, claimed there was no alternative way to liberate the Palestinian nation.

When did Israel withdraw from southern Lebanon? It wasnt a result of negotiations not in Madrid and not in Washington. It retreated as a result of resistance. When did it retreat from Gaza? After the (Second) Intifada in 2000 and the heroic resistance. Today we are being called and preparing to force Israel to retreat from Jerusalem and from the West Bank. Allah willing, this is on the way to its retreat from all of Palestine, he said.

PARIS (AP) A strong police presence deployed in Paris on Saturday for planned demonstrations by the yellow vest protesters, with authorities repeating calls for calm after protests in previous weekends turned violent.

Security forces in riot gear were positioned around central train stations and along the famed Champs-Elysees boulevard, where shops were closed and their windows boarded up in anticipation of the protests. Authorities have said about 8,000 police and 14 armored vehicles were being deployed in the French capital.

Last weekend, groups of demonstrators smashed and looted stores, clashing with police and setting up burning barricades in the streets.

The yellow vest movement, which takes its name from the fluorescent safety vests French motorists must all have in their vehicles, emerged in mid-November as a protest against fuel tax increases. It soon morphed into an expression of rage about the high cost of living in France and a sense that President Emanuel Macrons government is detached from the everyday struggles of workers.

There was a strong police presence Saturday outside the central Saint Lazare train station, where police in riot gear checked bags. More than 20 police vans and a water cannon truck idled nearby.

Seven civilians, 4 combatants killed in Kashmir fighting "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

At least seven civilians were killed and nearly two dozens injured when government forces fired at anti-India protesters in disputed Kashmir following a gunbattle that left three rebels and a soldier dead on Saturday, police and residents said.

Indian troops surrounded a village in the southern Pulwama area on a tip that militants were hiding there, police said. As the soldiers began a search operation, militants jumped out of a civilian home and took position in an apple orchard while firing at soldiers and counterinsurgency police, said Muneer Ahmed Khan, a top police officer.

Three rebels and a soldier were killed in the exchange of gunfire while one soldier was also wounded, Khan said.

The gunbattle sparked protests, with hundreds of people chanting pro-militant slogans and calling for an end to Indian rule over the Himalayan region. The protesters threw stones at troops to help the militants escape while government forces fired bullets, shotgun pellets and tear gas to stop them, killing seven and injuring at least 22 others.

Why PARSE is Another Fraud



Source: Paul Stramer | By Anna Von Reitz

I could explain it in mathematical terms, but most people are not mathematicians and it would be as useful as speaking Greek to my Labrador Retriever. Everyone would cock their heads, look polite and concerned, then go chase more rabbits. So, let's discuss this in terms everyone can understand.

All languages on Earth --- Swahili, English, Ancient Hebrew --- all our various languages ancient and modern use just three (3) operations to produce the infinite possibilities of grammar.

This underlying simplicity makes it possible to test the grammatical construction of all languages in exactly the same way.

It also means that if PARSE is true for English, it must be true for all other languages worldwide. It must be as applicable to Chinese and Ancient Hittite as modern English, so that forms the means to check our work. We "do the problem" in English and then we do it in Chinese. All results should tally.

All grammar and all variations of grammar are the product of three (3) operations:

1. We add words: "You say so." becomes "Did you say so?"

2. We change the form of words: "I eat beef on Sundays." becomes "I ate beef on Sundays."

3. We change the order of words: "This is sweet!" becomes "Is this sweet?"

In addition to the three operations, there is punctuation, which is not really grammar but notation. Similar to notation in mathematics, punctuation tells us how to order and group and value words.

Slavic Saturday "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I used to collect books by Karl May. What, you might ask, has a German writer have to do with Slavic Saturday? Well, I used to only collect editions that were illustrated by Zdenk Burian. I would collect them still, only I rarely have a chance to visit an antiquarian bookshop nowadays.

Cover of a set of photoreproductions. Pravk means prehistory. Click for full size.

Outside of our little land, he is probably most known for his paleoart, which to my mind simply has no equal in past or present. It might not be the most accurate paleoart by todays standards as science progresses, but those pictures are so alive that they still have value and still are inspiring. One of my most prized possessions is a set of loose sheets of photographic reproductions of his works this was also one of the first of his works I have got my hands on. The mammoths on the cover are simply amazing and that is an understatement. I would very much love to see the original paintings some day, everyone who had the honor tells me their impact is much greater than of the reproductions.

The back side of one of the sheets. Click for full size.

Each sheet in the book represents some specific geological era and it contains one A4 color reproduction of an oil painting on the front, and some black & white inks and some text on the back. Shame it was not published in other languages, and is not even published now in CZ, because I think many aspiring artists, paleontologists and paleoartists would benefit greatly from being exposed to this work more. I never cease to be impressed by what he was capable of achieving with just black ink and a pen.

His paleoart has been a great inspiration to me. I wanted to be a painter and to achieve such great things, but alas I lack the talent. Burians genius has in fact demonstrated itself early on, when at the age of mere 14 years he was accepted into study at Academy of Fine Arts in Prague, which he left just two years later. And he went straight into the most difficult branch of the painting and drawing business...

Yandex and TV Giants Make Peace Over Pirate Search Results "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In many developed countries, rightsholders are in dispute with search engines over the appearance of pirated content in search results and other indexes.

Back in August, TV companies under the Gazprom-Media umbrella filed complaints at the Moscow City Court, demanding that Yandex remove links to infringing content. Yandex initially refused to comply but under threat of ISP blocking, eventually took preventative action.

In September, the TV channels filed another four lawsuits against Yandex. The companies asked the Court to order the search provider to stop creating technical conditions that ensure the placement of [infringing] works on the Yandex.ru website.

At the time, it was reported that the underlying aim of Gazprom Media was to reach a settlement agreement with Yandex, which would see the search company take action against infringing content. That aim, it seems, is well on the way to being achieved.

The press service of Gazprom reports that settlement agreements have been reached in four lawsuits, two featuring TV3 and Super TV and another two featuring TNT and 22.

The settlements are directly linked to the landmark Memorandum of Cooperation signed by Russias most powerful tech companies and several major media companies early November.

The agreement will see the formation of a central database of infringing sites which will provide information on what content tech companies should remove from their indexes. The database will be queried every few minutes, with search platforms removing infringing links visible in Russia within six hours.

Commenting on the settlements, Gazprom Media said that the cooperation agreement signed last month represents another important step towards the development of civilized content consumption.

Reports circulating mid-November indicated that Yandex had already started to comply with the memorandums terms by deleting links to infringing content.

British taxpayers money for smearing Labour, Bahrain dictatorship, Myanmar genocide "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This 9 December 2018 video from Britain says about itself:

Labour figures have attacked a government-funded organisation for sharing articles that were critical of Jeremy Corbyns views on Russia. The Integrity Initiative came under fire from Labours general secretary following a story in our Scottish sister paper, the Sunday Mail.

The Initiative has received more than 2.2million from the Foreign Office in two years to in ministers words defend democracy against disinformation. On its website, it describes its key activity as tackling disinformation in Europe, and particularly addressing the activities of the Russian state. However, the Sunday Mail reported that the Initatives Twitter account also shared some material that was critical of Jeremy Corbyn.

Labour MSP Neil Findlay told the Sunday Mail: Such clear political attacks and propaganda shouldnt be coming from any charity. We need to know why the Foreign Office have been funding it.

David Miller, a professor of political sociology in the School for Policy Studies at the University of Bristol, added: People have a right to know how the Government are spending their money, and the views being promoted in their name.

The Initiative is led, according to its website, by the Institute for Statecraft, an organisation [of ex-military officers and intelligence people] operating from an old Victorian mill in Fife. The Sunday Mail reported it aims to counter Russian online propaganda by forming clusters of friendly journalists and key influencers throughout Europe who use social media to hit back against disinformation.

Paris and other French cities braced again as 'yellow vests' set for more Saturday protests

.
.

In reckoning with the 2016 British referendum that gave the world Brexit and then the U.S. election that gave the world Donald Trump, one truth hasnt quite come into focus. So regularly were voters told that the winner couldnt win, many likely thought they were casting a safe protest vote.

Brexit now appears to have been a gross miscalculation all the way around. Both the Tory and Labour parties were wrong-footed. There was no credible leadership faction ready with a plan for how the United Kingdom could make its exit from the European Union, restructure its economy, and survive and prosper.

But equally blundering have been the miscalculations in Brussels, Paris and Berlin. EU leaders leapt, and continue to leap, to the conclusion that torturing Britain on the way out is the key to making a troubled European Union sustainable, supposedly because it deters other from exiting.

This seems little short of insane. The troubles of the EU arise overwhelmingly from its unaffordable welfare states and its single currency, the euro, which Britain never joined. It benefits Britain very little to extricate itself from the common market, unified Europes one useful cre...

Wanda to build a US$1.74 billion theme park in the cradle of the Chinese Communist revolution to cash in on red tourism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The investment is the second major push by Wang Jianlins company to hew to the governments preferred agenda

South China Morning Post

Wanda Group, the property and theme park conglomerate built by former Peoples Liberation Army officer Wang Jianlin, will spend 12 billion yuan (US$1.74 billion) to build a theme park in the Communist Partys revolutionary birthplace Yanan to cash in on the growing trend of so-called red tourism.

Yanan Shaanxi meeting hall, an example of Red Tourism

The theme park, in the loess plateau of Shaanxi province near Gansu and Shanxi, will feature shopping malls, indoor parks, theatres and hotels built in the style of the 1930s when the prefectural city was used as the headquarters of the Communist Party. The project, measuring 1.26 square kilometres in size, will begin construction in the first quarter of 2019 for completion by the first half of 2021 in time for the ruling partys centenary celebration, Wanda said.

Wanda is committed to the Yanan spirit and will turn the Yanan Wanda City into a new brand for red tourism, Wang said in a statement.

Duckduckgo on Filter Bubbles "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Measuring the "Filter Bubble": How Google is influencing what you click

Over the years, there has been considerable discussion of Google's "filter bubble" problem. Put simply, it's the manipulation of your search results based on your personal data. In practice this means links are moved up or down or added to your Google search results, necessitating the filtering of other search results altogether. These editorialized results are informed by the personal information Google has on you (like your search, browsing, and purchase history), and puts you in a bubble based on what Google's algorithms think you're most likely to click on.

The filter bubble is particularly pernicious when searching for political topics. That's because undecided and inquisitive voters turn to search engines to conduct basic research on candidates and issues in the critical time when they are forming their opinions on them. If theyre getting information that is swayed to one side because of their personal filter bubbles, then this can have a significant effect on political outcomes in aggregate.

This is a moderately long read, as web pages go. IMO, it's well worth the time.

Herr Flick of the EU "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Normal business will resume again next week...

...but, having been out last night and having had ever-so-slightly far too much to drink, I'm hoping I didn't do anything like this over the course of the evening:


Maybe it's because I'm hungover, but I'm seriously expecting BBC comedians to go into mockery overdrive over this, and for BBC reporters to endlessly sneer at Herr Juncker, and for Newsnight to do a #MeToo special over him behaviour, and for Women's Hour to spend weeks discussing this kind of patriarchal, misogynistic hair-flipping. (Not really, of course).

And just imagine if Donald J. had done it! (Of course, he's teetotal, so it's a bit different). Katty, Anthony, Jon, Nick, Tara, James, Hugh, the other Nick, Emily, Jane, and myriad dozen others, would have gone into hyperdrive about it. And it would surely have been on the main BBC One news bulletins faster than you can say 'backstop'.

I've not checked any of the BBC One bulletins or Newsnight but I'll place a bet that they didn't report this, even in passing, and there's no video of it on the BBC News website yet.

Guest Post "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By special request, Im posting this image to illustrate the comment below (Sisyphus10 December 2018 at 10:00)  Out of Office' Open thread.


I was away for the weekend & accidentally deprived myself of wi-fi, so thanks, Peter for the up-date on the social media response to the Alistair Campbell/Jenni Russell squabble on Newsnight.
What I did not miss, though, was what was going on opposite Worcester Cathedral at about 4.15 on Saturday: having eaten a well-lubricated lunch, my wife & I returned to our hotel for a quick snooze. We had barely zizzed our first zeds when a commotion began outside: a quick peek through the curtains revealed a large yellow bus, bearing the legend:"Bollocks to Brexit," and a group of 15-20 people standing alongside it chanting the slogan. If the BBC reported this, it probably said a crowd of 100,000, so I repeat: THERE WERE 15-20 PEOPLE.
Two questions come to mind: who is funding this? and at whom is it targeted? I just had a look on-line & the organisers claim to be 'crowd-funded.' So, which crowd? Is there an EU slush-fund or is it Soros or Bilderberg types? The BBC is very keen on investigating the funding of referendum campaigners so no doubt we can expect a special edition of Panorama soon!
The target age-group appeared to be about 15 or 16 - have they been tipped off that there is to be a second referendum & a lower age-limit of 16?

Alfredo M. Bonanno: The Logic of #Insurrection "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Essay by Alfredo M. Bonnano.

When we hear the word insurrection we think of some precise moment of upheaval in the past, or imagine a similar clash in the future. Spontaneous insurrection occurs when people are pushed beyond their limits of endurance at their points of exploitation. Certain events take place: street clashes, attacks against the police, destruction of the symbols of capitalism (banks, jewelers, supermarkets, etc). Such moments of popular violence catch anarchists unprepared, amazed that yesterdays apathy is transformed into todays rage.

Originally published by Insurrection #1 in 1984. Insurrection is an anarchist magazine of the 1980s which was edited by Jean Weir of Elephant Editions, UK. Written by Alfredo M. Bonnano.

Note: Enough is Enough is not organizing any of these events, we are publishing this text for people across the US and Europe to be able to see what is going on and for documentation only.

Look at Brixton a couple of years ago: anarchists were not, could not have been, protagonists in the riot. Events took them by surprise. People rose up for reasons apparently simple, but which were hatching beneath the surface for a long time. Anarchists participation was simply that of adapting to the situation, the guests of an insurrection but not acting with an insurrectional logic. To throw a brick is not the best way for a conscious revolutionary to participate in an insurrection.

When we talk of applying a logic of insurrection we mean going about things the other way round. We do not limit ourselves to identifying areas of social tension and joining in when it explodes, we try to stimulate rebellion and even more, propose and participate in the formation of an organization of revolt.

Lets try to be as clear as possible.

The kind of organization we mean should be of an associative, social or mass charactera committee, support group, league against repression, association for housing rights, anti-nuclear groups, abstentionist league against the elections, etcnot a specific anarchist group. Why should people have to belong to an anarchist group to take part in a social struggle?

USA - City Council To Discuss Fluoride At Next Meeting "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Sheridan City Council will discuss putting a measure concerning fluoride on the 2020 ballot during the upcoming Dec. 17 city council session.

The measure will determine whether the city will continue using Hydrofluosilicic acid, commonly known as fluoride, in the citys water.

City Attorney Brendon Kerns addressed the agenda item at the councils last study session and described what the ballot measure would look like.

Its very simple, Kerns said. It mentions, of course, the fluoride, and its a simple yes or no request for voters.

Kerns said that, if the resolution to include the ballot measure passes, city staff would submit the ballot measure to the county clerk at least 60 days before the general election. Kerns said that he does not suggest submitting a ballot measure much before that 60-day mark.

I just get a little bit nervous about, honestly, doing that, Kerns said. Things get lost in the shuffle sometimes. I would feel much more comfortable if our staff has a hold of that.

Mayor Roger Miller asked who the ballot measure would apply to. Kerns said that, unless additional steps are taken, only city residents would vote on the measure.

If the county wanted to get on board, you could do it county-wide, Kerns said. Otherwise, this would be just for the city.

Chinas South China Sea Grab "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Over the last five years, China has turned its contrived historical claims to the South China Sea into reality and gained strategic depth far from its shores. Chinas leaders did not leave that outcome to chance.

MANILA It has been just five years since China initiated its major land reclamation in the South China Sea, and the country has already shifted the territorial status quo in its favor without facing any international pushback. The anniversary of the start of its island building underscores the transformed geopolitics in a corridor central to the international maritime order.

Dec 14, 2018 

In December 2013, the Chinese government pressed the massive Tianjing dredger into service at Johnson South Reef in the Spratly archipelago, far from the Chinese mainland. The Spratlys are to the south of the Paracel Islands, which China seized in 1974, capitalizing on American forces departure from South Vietnam. In 1988, the reef was the scene of a Chinese attack that killed 72 Vietnamese sailors and sunk two of their ships.

Is There Anything Kushner Isn't Implicated In? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It often seems like if there is an allegation against Donald Trump that Jared Kushner will somehow be intimately involved. The list is long and growing, but most famously includes the infamous Trump Tower meeting and post-election/pre-inauguration meetings with prominent Russians with ties to the Kremlin. One thing I thought Kushner was probably free of was dealings with David Pecker and the National Enquirer. I was wrong.

Shortly after the 2016 presidential election, Donald Trumps son-in-law Jared Kushner was handed a task considered critical to the presidents operations. In addition to serving as a senior adviser in the White House, he would also be playing the role of the main conduit between Trump and his friend David Pecker, the National Enquirer publisher and chief executive of AMI, who prosecutors said on Wednesday admitted to making a $150,000 hush-money payment in concert with the Trump campaign.

During the early months of the Trump era, Kushner performed the task admirably, discussing with Pecker various issues over the phone, including everything from international relations to media gossip, according to four sources familiar with the situation. Pecker, for his part, bragged to people that he was speaking to the presidents son-in-law and, more generally, about the level of access he had to the upper echelons of the West Wing, two sources with knowledge of the relationship recounted.

Nonetheless, Kushner is on the short list to be the presidents next chief of staff, and its beginning to look like that list might be down to two people. Former New Jersey Governor Chris Christie took himself out of contention for the position on Friday which, according to...

The Coming Parade of Witnesses Against Trump "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It was only eight days ago that I wrote Trump Will Be Brought Down By His Own People. In that piece, I made the point that witnesses like Rick Gates and Michael Flynn will be providing the most compelling evidence against President Trump. I noted that the Office of Special Counsel has interviewed virtually everyone in the Trumps inner circle, and that most of them probably told the truth while others were compelled to sign cooperation agreements. Susan Glasser provides another example of what I am talking about in a new piece in The New Yorker:

Largely overlooked in the daily flood of Trump-era news, a week ago, his former Secretary of State, Rex Tillerson, said in an interview that Trump had repeatedly pressed him to violate the law The coverage of Tillersons interview with the journalist Bob Schieffer focussed more on Trumps outraged response than on the underlying revelation But Tillersons allegation was more than just another bout of Trump-era name-calling between a former Secretary of State who once called his boss a fucking moron and the President who fired him by tweet. Imagine Tillerson before Congress come January, testifying under oath and live on television, about which laws Trump told him to break.

This morning, Michael Cohen appeared on ABC News with George Stephanopolous and made two important points. First, he reiterated that he did nothing unless directed to do it by Donald Trump, and that Trump was fully aware that he was requesting that Cohen commit crimes. Second, when asked whether Trump has been telling the truth about his collusion with the Russians, Cohen responded, No.

So, to make my original point again, what you should anticipate is a parade of witnesses against Trump. But those witnesses wont be tell-all mistresses or victims of sexual harassment or victims of fraud and aggrieved contractors or pissed off members of the intelligence community. They will be people from Trumps inner circle who are often testifying reluctantly and under duress. In some cases, like with Rex Tillerson, the testimony may not be all that reluctant, but it will still come from members of the campaign or administration who were firsthand witnesses to a conspiracy or crimes or grossly unethical behavior. Im thinking of people like Reince Priebus and Don McGahn.

Why Not Kushner as Chief of Staff? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If its true that Jared Kushner met with his father-in-law on Wednesday to discuss taking the job of White House chief of staff, then were nearing the endgame for this administration.  This would be an insult too big to ignore and signal a final hunkering down. For starters, Kushner is every bit as much of a target of federal and state investigators as the president. Then theres the whole security clearance issue, because presumably a presidents chief of staff has the highest clearance you can get. And, finally, just today the Senate condemned Saudi Arabian Crown Prince Mohammed bin Salman, who happens to be BFFs with Jared Kushner, by voting to end support for the war in Yemen.

Kushner and his wife Ivanka known derisively by White House critics as Javanka face considerable opposition from both inside and outside the West Wing because of concerns about nepotism as well as worries about Kushners judgment. He has had to repeatedly file addendums to his financial disclosure forms since joining the White House. More recently, he has become a strong advocate for the crown prince of Saudi Arabia, Mohammed bin Salman who U.S. intelligence agencies believe ordered the murder of U.S. resident and journalist Jamal Khashoggi after luring him to the Saudi consulate in Istanbul in October.

Tone-deaf wouldnt begin to adequately describe a decision to make Kushner chief of staff. If it happens, it can only be out of sheer desperation and the fact that the Trump family has run out of people they feel they can trust. In The Godfather terms, it would be like Vito Corleones adopted son Tom Hagan taking over as consigliere after Genco Abbandando died of cancer or like Michael Corleone making Hagan acting boss after surviving an attempt on his life.  Except, Jared is more like Fredo than Tom Hagan.

With Kushner as chief of staff, Trump would have a true partner in crime at the helm, and thats probably the upside for him.  He wouldnt have to explain or hide things from his chief of staff anymore, and he'd be comforted to know that if he goes down, his lieutenant will go down with him.  With that knowledge, at least he could count on a robust defense.

The Tiny Low-Wattage Bulb in Trump's Head "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NBC News is reporting that a tiny low-wattage light bulb has flickered on inside President Trumps brain.

Despite President Donald Trumps public declaration that he isnt concerned about impeachment, he has told people close to him in recent days that he is alarmed by the prospect, according to multiple sources.

Trumps fear about the possibility has escalated as the consequences of federal investigations involving his associates and Democratic control of the House sink in, the sources said, and his allies believe maintaining the support of establishment Republicans he bucked to win election is now critical to saving his presidency.

The next obvious step would be to devise some kind of strategy for keeping establishment Republicans happy. Hes particularly going to need to satisfy members of his caucus in the Senate, because they will ultimately decide whether he survives the next year.

Republican Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida rattled the White House with similarly cautious remarks Sunday when asked about Trumps possible involvement in the violation of campaign finance laws: If someone has violated the law, the application of the law should be applied to them like it would to any other citizen in this country, and obviously if youre in a position of great authority like the presidency that would be the case.

Rubio said his decision on how Congress should respond to federal investigators final findings on the payments will not be a political decision, itll be the fact that we are a nation of laws and no one in this country no matter who you are is above it.

Senator Rubio is sounding pretty unforgiving about some of the least serious of the allegations against the president. If hes saying the president should be held accountable for covering up his extramarital affairs, what will he say about suborning perjury, obstructing justice, money laundering, or coordination with WikiLeaks and Russian military intelligence?

Remember, also, that Rubio publicly claimed in March 2017 that his own campaign had been targeted by Russian hackers in 2016. There are also personal and professional reasons why Rubio is unlikely to stick with the president for very long. Ther...

An Indigenous camp was ordered Friday to remove a gate thats blocking a bridge in northwestern B.C. and holding up a multi-billion-dollar gas pipeline project.

Judge Marguerite Church of the B.C. Supreme Court sided with Coastal GasLink, a subsidiary of TransCanada Corp., which filed an injunction to get construction going on the $40-billion LNG Canada build.

People were crying but I feel emboldened because we are getting so much support, said Warner Naziel of the Indigenous Unistoten Camp a land-based healing centre on Wetsuweten traditional territory south of Houston, B.C.

The locked gate on the Morice River Bridge must come down within 72 hours, the judge ruled.

She described it as an interim injunction giving the company access while defendants Naziel, and his partner Freda Huson, mount a fuller defence to the injunction and additional civil suit.

Church said she will hear more arguments on Jan. 31.

That gate is a safety issue for us, said Naziel.

We see the land there for healing not for profit and monetary gain. Its obvious the courts agree with that; they dont understand what were doing.

Coastal Gaslink told court it cant re-route the pipeline.

Could Blairs analysis of Brexit offer a realistic way through the mess? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ive never been a Blair fan boy nor one of his haters. He left enough mess behind in NI to know not everything hes done was perfect, but I do think its worth listening to his interview on the Today programme yesterday.

In it he outlines a course of action that may not have seemed practical a few days ago (although its not a million miles from my own suggestion on Nolan earlier in the week).

My scenario was predicated on a change of government. But Blair is pitching the idea of stopping the clock to May (in the first place) as a way through rather than just a less costly way out.

As things stand in law, without an alternative the U.K. is on a ticking clock. But through two bills from Hillary Benn and Dominic Grieve Parliament now has significant powers to reshape that outcome.

Rightly or wrongly, the backstop has become toxic in Westminster from the very left to the very right. Even if Labour MPs like Jess Phillips vote for Mays numbers in her own party are on the floor.

But Blairs senior point is that the big countries of the EU themselves are straining under many of the issues that pushed the UK to vote for an exit. Renegotiating terms, not just for the UK but for wider EU reform is the key Blair difference.

Well have to see if there is anyone actually listening. Theres going to be a few more bends in the road before this is over

Reflex Trainer Puts Athletes To The Test "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Being a top athlete in this modern age is a full-time job. No longer do athletes simply practice at their nominated sport of choice. They undergo strength training, full nutritional programs, cardio, and even reflex training.

Reflex training involves a series of nodes that an athlete must identify when lit up, and touch them to switch them off. By triggering them in a fast sequence, the athlete must work hard to both identify the lit node and then move to switch it off. TrainerLights is just such a system, built around the NodeMCU platform.

The system consists of a minimum of four lights one acting as a server, the others as nodes. The lights each contain a nodeMCU board which communicates over WiFi, while the server has an additional board acting as a WiFi hotspot that controls the system.

With the lights switched on, the coach connects to the server with a smartphone, and configures the lighting sequence and timings depending on the desired excercise regime. The server then communicates with the lighting nodes, which light their LEDs  at specified intervals. The athlete must clear the lights by swiping at the nodes, which detect the athletes hand via an ultrasonic proximity sensor. The sensitivity is configurable, to allow the system to trigger from a distant wave or a direct touch from the athlete. This allows a variety of training uses, from tennis to taekwondo.

With a 3D printed case and parts readily available from any good maker supplier, its a project you could tackle in a weekend to add to your own training regime.

We see plenty of athletic hacks in these parts like this line-following robot for training sprinters. Video after the break.

From Senecas last letter to Nero

The excavation of more than 600 billion tons of toxic carbon and hydrocarbon geological remains of previous biospheres and their transfer to the atmosphere as carbon gases constitutes nothing less than insanity leading to global suicide. With estimated profitable carbon reserves in excess of 20,000 GtC (Assessing Dangerous Climate Change, including oil shale, tar sand, coal seam gas, further emissions would take the atmosphere, oceans and biosphere back to early Eocene (~55-40 million years ago) and Mesozoic-like (pre-65 million years ago) greenhouse atmosphere and acid oceans conditions, during which large parts of the continents were inundated by the oceans. Most likely to survive the extreme transition over a few centuries would be grasses, some insects and perhaps some birds, descendants of the fated dinosaurs. A new evolutionary cycle would commence. Survivors of Homo sapiens may endure in the Arctic.

Figure 1. Global warming by January 2018 relative to 1951-1980

Since about 542 million years ago, acting as the lungs of the biosphere, the Earths atmosphere developed an oxygen-rich composition over hundreds of millions of years, allowing emergence of breathing animals.

A critical parameter in Drakes Equation, which seeks to estimate the number of planets that host civilizations in the Milky Way galaxy, is L the longevity of technological civilizations. Estimates of L range between a minimum of 70 years and 10,000 years, but even for the more optimistic scenarios, only a tiny fraction of such planets would exist in the galaxy at the present time. It is another question whether an intelligent species exists in this, or any other galaxy, which has brought about a mass extinction of species on the scale initiated by Homo sapiens since the mid-18th century and in particular since 1945..

The history of Earth includes six major mass extinctions defining the end of several periods, including the End-Ediacaran, Ordovician, Devonian, Permian, Jurassic and Cretaceous periods. Each of these events has been triggered either by extra-terrestrial impacts (End-Ediacaran and K-T), massive volcanic eruptions, or methane release and related greenhouse events. Yet,....

#Anarchism at the End of the World "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

An Introduction to the Instinct that Wont Go Away. 

Originally published by Expressive Egg. Written by Darren Allen.

And now well pull down every single notice, and every single leaf of grass shall be allowed to grow as it likes to. 
Snufkin.

Anarchism is the only way of life that has ever worked or ever can. It is the only actual alternative to the pseudo-alternatives of the left and right, of optimism and pessimism, and even of theism and atheism. That being so you would expect it to be widely ignored, ridiculed and misunderstood, even by nominal anarchists.

What is Anarchism?

Anarchism is the rejection of domination. In an anarchist societywhich means of course in the anarchist herselfnobody is dominated by anyone or anything else. This does not mean, as we shall see, that there is no authority.1 What anarchism rejects is authority with the power to control or coerce the individual against her will.

There are two crucial exceptions. The first is that, in refusing domination, the anarchist necessarily has to restrain those who dominateforce and controlother people. Rapists, murderers, bullies and, less directly, thieves seek to dominate others, and so they must be prevented from doing so.

The second exception is that the anarchist is justified in restraining those who do not have control over themselves. There is no coercion in preventing very young children, sleepwalkers, trippers and drunkards, for example, from walking over a cliff. If someone has control over themselves and insists on throwing themselves from a cliff, then an anarchist society would let them do it.

These two exceptions partially answer two of the most common objections to anarchism. The first is, who or what, exactly, is going to stop thieves, rapists and murderers from harming me? and the second is, who or what is going to stop the mad, the sad and the stupid from harming themselves? To which the anarchist ordinarily replies people. Not the state, not professional experts; us. This answer, of course, is incomplete and leads to further objections. To respond to these we need to recognise those elements of the world which control individuals against th...

Four injured, one critically, in explosion at MarkWest processing plant in Washington County, PA

From an Article by Pittsburgh Post Gazette, December 14, 2018

Four people remain hospitalized, one in critical condition, after an explosion at a Washington County gas processing plant Thursday night.

The explosion involved two storage tanks at the MarkWest Energy facility at 800 Western Ave., in Houston, Pa. It was reported at 6:03 p.m. and the fire brought under control within an hour, according to county emergency officials.

All of the injured workers suffered burns. Two were flown to UPMC Mercy, including one person who was in critical condition Friday morning, officials said. The other two injured were flown to West Penn Hospital.

Nine fire departments and three EMS crews responded, as did the countys hazmat unit. No homes were evacuated.

A MarkWest official said in a statement that the explosion occurred near two temporary tanks that were on-site for routine maintenance, resulting in a fire.

Although the processing plant was not involved in the incident, it was shut down as a precaution and at this time there are no off-site impacts, the statement read. Agency notifications have been made and an investigation into the cause of this event is underway. Our prayers are with our injured colleagues and their families.

Huge 'Pterosaur' Observed at the Vermilion River in Danville, Illinois

I recently received a telephone call from an eyewitness ('DF') who was referred to me by an associate.

In the spring of 2013, DF was on his property at the end of Ave. F near the Vermilion River in Danville, Illinois. It was around 4pm on a warm sunny afternoon. The property extended back to the edge of the river. DF was busy clearing brush and trees on the bluff overlooking the river. Many times he would ride his ATV to the location, then sit and watch a variety of wildlife along a game trail. 
 
There was also a dock on the property.

On this particular day, DF was taking a break from his work. After a while, he noticed that the regular sound of birds had suddenly stopped and it became usually quiet. DF said that he has always been very quick to pick-up on movement, since he has ridden a motorcycle everywhere he went, and needed to be aware of his surroundings.

Theres new evidence giving cash to the poor is more transformative than we thought "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"







The sole difference between the 'MAN' and a slave has always been a handful of cash.  Claiming otherwise is utter rubbish whatever racist meme you buy into.


Let me show you ECONOMICS 101.  This is not taught at the best schools.  Approximately one fifth of society is not sufficiently monetized.  They are called poor.  Yet the per capita income is less than that of the next fifth and up.  Paying direct attention just to that fifth to ensure monetization and internal success will flush cash up into the top four fifths.

My central point is that making sure that the so called poor are doing fine will cause the rest to do just dandy.

Now simply handing over cash is not that efficient but considering that intelligent decision making is generally impossible at the level of so called government  it may be the only way in most countries.

Everyone now becomes the MAN and invests in himself which rapidly expands the economy.

When it comes to poverty alleviation in the developing world, cash transfer schemes have been at the center of a difficult debate. For years, donor agencies and governments were urged to integrate the poor into their economies by providing them with a basic amount of cash. Yet those programs have been dogged by controversies, with critics arguing they encourage dependency, negatively impact labor, and pit community members against each other.

Burial sites from 5th and 6th centuries yield unexpected treasures "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Some of the artefacts discovered during excavations at a burial site in Lincolnshire

  
What this shows is that the appetite for exotic goods continued after the Roman exit.  Earlier eras tended toward more closed communities possibly even hostile to traders and perhaps much less traffic.  Yet the real issue was the use of copper and the use of copper alloys which was used for most manufactures along with wood.

The metal served a dual purpose of currency as well.  Thus it was constantly recycled.  This economy extended to some degree to iron but there abundance and rust created much more wastage.

Most of the mined copper remained in circulation to this day.  We still generally avoid wasting it.

Risk Assessment on Mariner East 2 Pipeline Appears Inadequate "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mariner East 2 Pipeline to transport NGL to Delaware River for export

Delaware County (Pennsylvania) sets public hearing on pipeline risk study

Article from the Delaware County Daily Times, Upper Darby Township, PA, December 14, 2018

MEDIA COURTHOUSE Delaware County Council will hold a public presentation of the Pipeline Risk Assessment on December 17 at 6 p.m. in the County Council Public Meeting Room, located on the first floor of the Government Center, 201 W. Front St., Media.

Council contracted with G2 Integrated Solutions, based in Texas to conduct an independent study of the risks associated with the operation of the Mariner East 2 pipeline and the converted Adelphia pipeline. Analysts from G2 will present the findings of the study to Council and to the public on December 17, 2018.

In response to public discussions, this risk assessment was undertaken to estimate the level of individual risk to Delaware County residents from either the Mariner East 2 pipeline or the converted Adelphia pipeline and then compare to other common sources of risk experienced by the general population. The Mariner East 2 pipeline and Adelphia pipeline quantitative risk assessments were executed in a systematic process in which potential accident events were identified, the associated consequence and likelihood of such events were determined, and the risk measures estimated.

The full results of the risk assessment study can be found here.

Some pipeline opponents have criticized the findings of the study, which downplayed the danger of a serious incident or risk of injury from the pipeline as being about the same as being involved in a car accident, house fire or fall down the steps.

Mariner East 2 foes have said that actually the study points to just the opposite, that the blast zone created by a serious problem with the pipeline actually is greater than thought, about 1.3 miles, and that while the chance of an incident are smaller, any problem likely would be catastrophic.

Ive decided to start sharing food posts and recipes. It wont be often, but it will give some life to this blog for now. I do have ideas for other major blog posts, like the trilogy I did on ableism. I still want to do one about the US police and patriarchal white supremacy. But those kinds of posts take a lot of time, which I dont have much of. I do also want to reignite my Great Guitar Solos series, but Ive been listening to podcasts rather than music for a long time, now. I need to get back into listening to music again, so I can find more awesome guitar solos to highlight

Ive also been thinking about writing out my own political platform. No, I dont plan on running for any political office. Itd be an excuse for me to really study and learn about politics in a more in-depth way both domestic and foreign. I have so many thoughts and positions, but I also know that my views are at least somewhat shallow, and I could always stand to learn more. Such a platform would be long several posts worth. But I think it could be fun. The first thing Id need to learn, however, is how to actually write an in-depth political platform. I dont actually know how to do that

So in the meantime, Ill do stuff like this. Food posts, recipes, etc. No, there wont be fancy recipe cards or professional pictures. This isnt a food blog. Its just a blog that Ill sometimes share fooding posts on. And Ive done this before. I know Ive shared several recipes here; and yes, I know the vast majority had pictures (a couple even had videos!). So this isnt new. Its just going to be a tiny bit more frequent, now

So let me start with a confession Im addicted to soda. I absolutely adore carbonation, and I love the sweetness (I dont care what anybody says high fructose corn syrup is my bae).

I really dont like seltzer, however. Dont get me wrong I love water (I literally have a 64-ounce water bottle that I fill once, sometimes twice, a day), but I like my water flat, I guess. Adding carbonation to it actually does change the flavor, and I dont like it.

And dont get me started on flavored seltzer. Like what a cheap imitation of soda. Fucking unsweetened soda? Fuck you. Shits gross. Give me real soda or get out of here.

So anyways

Point is, I really like soda. But I also know that, despite my love for it, HFCS can be bad for you if you overdo it (which to be fair is true of everything, so). I also have a love f...

Cosmic coincidence: NASA's Voyager 2 went interstellar the same day a Solar Probe touched the Sun "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Call it a cosmic coincidence: Two probes launched four decades apart, traveled in opposite directions - and used similar instruments to gather milestone data within hours of each other. That scientific poetry took place on Nov. 5. Without orchestrated calculations or trajectory maneuvers, the grizzled Voyager 2 probe crossed into interstellar space the same day that the freshly launched Parker Solar Probe made its first close approach to our sun. Both spacecraft were equipped with unique Faraday cup instruments, which they used to gather milestone data about nearby highly charged plasma particles streaming off the sun. "To be crossing into new territory on both edges of the heliosphere at the same time to within a day - you couldn't plan that if you wanted to," Justin Kasper, an astrophysicist at the University of Michigan and principal investigator for the Solar Wind Electrons Alphas and Protons, or SWEAP, instrument on the Parker Solar Probe, told Space.com here during the annual...

When Will Electric Airliners Make Sense? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ArsTechnica:

[...] Assuming these electric aircraft could be built, would they actually lower emissions? At present, no. Given the average emissions involved with powering the US grid, the emissions involved with powering an electric aircraft (including losses during transmission) would be about 20 percent higher than those generated by a modern, efficient jet engine. That doesn't mean they'd be entirely useless from a climate perspective, though. Once the additional warming effects of aircraft are taken into consideration, the electric aircraft comes out ahead by about 30 percent.

Future considerations complicate things pretty quickly, though. The price of renewable energy is expected to keep dropping, which will make renewables a larger part of the grid, lowering the emissions. The authors estimate that the vast majority of charging will take place during daylight hoursthe peak of solar productionas well. Assuming future solar production leads to a discount on electric use during the day, it could help the economics of electric aircraft; currently, they only make sense economically with fuel at about $100/barrel.

How all of this would affect air travel is very sensitive to the capacity of future batteries. The authors estimate that an effective range of about 1,100 kilometers would allow electric aircraft to cover 15 percent of the total air miles (and corresponding fuel use) and nearly half the total flights. That would raise the total electricity demand by about one percent globally, although most of that would affect industrialized nations. Upping the range to 2,200 kilometers would allow 80 percent of the global flight total to be handled by electric aircraft.

Zeppelins still don't seem to figure into the answer.

Federal Judge Rules Obamacare Invalid "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WASHINGTON A conservative federal judge in Texas has ruled the Affordable Care Act invalid on the eve of the sign-up deadline for next year. But with appeals certain, even the Trump White House said the law will remain in place for now.

In a 55-page opinion, U.S. District Judge Reed OConnor ruled Friday that last years tax cut bill knocked the constitutional foundation from under Obamacare by eliminating a penalty for not having coverage. The rest of the law cannot be separated from that provision and is therefore invalid, he wrote.

Supporters of the law immediately said they would appeal. Todays misguided ruling will not deter us: our coalition will continue to fight in court for the health and wellbeing of all Americans, said California Attorney General Xavier Becerra, who is leading a coalition of states defending the ACA.

The White House applauded OConnors ruling, but said the law remains in place while appeals proceed. President Donald Trump tweeted that Congress should pass a new law.

As I predicted all along, Obamacare has been struck down as an UNCONSTITUTIONAL disaster! Trump tweeted. Now Congress must pass a STRONG law that provides GREAT healthcare and protects pre-existing conditions.

However, Congress is unlikely to act while the case remains in the courts. Numerous high-ranking Republican lawmakers have said they did not intend to also strike down popular provisions such as protection for people with pre-existing medical conditions when they repealed the ACAs fines for people who can afford coverage but remain uninsured.

Still, Democratic Rep. Nancy Pelosi, who is expected to become House speaker in January, vowed to fight what she called an absurd ruling. She said the House will move swiftly to formally intervene in the appeals process to uphold the life-saving protections for people with pre-existing conditions and reject Republicans effort to destroy the Affordable Care Act.

White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders said: We expect this ruling will be appealed to the Supreme Court. Pending the appeal process, the law remains in place.

Legal expert Timothy Jost, a supporter of the health law, said OConnors ruling would have repercussions for nearly all Americans if it stands. If the entire health law is invalidated, popular provisions that benefit Medicare beneficiaries and people with employer coverage would also be scrapped. That could include the section that allows parents to keep young adult children on their coverage until age 26.

About 20 million people have gained health insurance coverage since the ACA passed in 2010 without a single Republican vote. Currently, about 10 million have subsidized private insurance through the health laws insurance markets, while an estimated....

Exit From The Matrix: The greatest day of your life "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Jon Rappoport

December 15, 2018

Oh yes, there was such a day.

Maybe you were 10 years old, and it was summer, and you were running across a field and the sky suddenly opened up and you saw a huge future, as yet undefined. But it was there, and it was yours.

Unlimited possibility. Unlimited energy.

No one had yet told you imagination was just a toy. No one had said it was all fantasy and you should throw it away.

You were unbounded.

You were in the center of your own power, the only power that matters: your endless capacity to create and invent.

This is what I had in mind when I assembled my collection, Exit From The Matrix. This is exactly what I had in mind when I included an extensive set of imagination exercises a person can practice daily

Because the expansion of imagination is the fountainhead from which New Life is launched.

It can happen at any time.

At any moment.

Problems and past history begin to dissolve in the light of what you can invent, in accordance with your deepest desires.

This is what freedom is for.

But you can make the shift. You can take your creative power into your own hands and invent the reality you desire, and you can make it into fact in the world.

Scandal-Hit CBS to Give $20M to 18 Womens Rights Groups "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NEW YORK CBS on Friday pledged to give $20 million to 18 organizations dedicated to eliminating sexual harassment in the workplace as the network tries to recover from a scandal that led to the ouster of its top executive, Les Moonves.

The announcement comes as the networks crisis deepens, with details emerging from an ongoing investigation into Moonves conduct and news surfacing of other instances of sexual misconduct at CBS.

In the latest revelation, CBS acknowledged that it reached a $9.5 million confidential settlement last year with actress Eliza Dushku, who said she was written off the show Bull in March 2017 after complaining about on-set sexual comments from its star, Michael Weatherly. Some womens rights activists called on CBS to fire Weatherly.

The funds for the grants to the 18 organizations are being deducted from severance owed to Moonves under his contract, and the company had previously said the former CEO would have a say in which groups would receive the money.

But whether Moonves, who was one of the television industrys most powerful executives, receives the remaining $120 million of his severance hinges on the investigation, which is being conducted by two outside law firms. The company has said Moonves would not be entitled to the severance if its board of directors determines he was fired for cause.

CBS said its donation to the 18 groups will go toward helping expand their work and ties into the companys ongoing commitment to strengthening its own workplace culture.

Among the recipients are Catalyst, a 56-year-old organization dedicated to empowering women in the workplace, and several groups that have emerged as prominent voices since the downfall last year of Hollywood producer Harvey Weinstein, which triggered an avalanche of sexual misconduct allegations against powerful men across several industries.

The 18 organizations issued a joint statement praising the donations as a first step while calling on CBS to disclose the results of the Moonves investigation and the companys efforts to rectify practices that may have enabled misconduct.

We thank CBS for these donations. We also recognize these funds are not a panacea, nor do they erase or absolve decades of bad behavior, the groups said.

Moonves was ousted in September after the New Yorker published allegations from 12 women who said he subjected them to mistreatment that included forced oral sex, groping and retaliation if they resisted. Moonves has denied having any non-consensual sexual relationships.

Two other major figures at CBS have lost their jobs in the past year over misconduct allegations: 60 Minutes top executive Jeff Fager, and news anchor Charlie Rose.

The Dalai Lama Explains How to Embrace Your Anger And Transform It For True Spiritual Growth "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Anger is something that none of us can avoid. Just as we sometimes feel happy, we must also feel sadness, and anger, because they help us on our paths to Nirvana.

When it comes to anger, the way we face it and really resolve it speaks volumes. Some people are good at dealing with their negative emotions but others are not. If youre the kind of person that overreacts and allows the small stuff to bring you down then youre most likely someone that isnt good at coping with anger.

The Dalai Lama has spoken about anger on more than one occasion and his wise words are some that we should all take the time to learn from. For those who might not be aware, the Dalai Lama is the spiritual leader of the Tibetan people/Tibetan Buddhists. There have been several Dalai Lamas throughout the years, but we are currently in the presence of the 14th Dalai Lama.

In Buddhism, people are taught that there are three poisons or root kleshas. Those consisting of hatred, ignorant confusion, and greed. From one comes another and so forth. While anger is a feeling more often misunderstood than not, it is quite interesting in itself. In the world of Buddhism anger is not something to be ignored, it is something that should be transformed. We must work from the inside out to overcome it.

Throughout the years, the Dalai Lama has been quite outspoken regarding his wisdom on anger. He has even stated the following on his Twitter account:

Anger and fear undermine our immune system, while warm-heartedness brings peace of mind. Therefore, just as we teach children to comply with physical hygiene for the good of their health, we should also counsel them in a kind of hygiene of the emotions.

Anger may seem to be a source of energy, but its blind. It causes us to lose our restraint. It may stir courage, but that too is blind.

Anger destroys our peace of mind and causes trouble. It also hampers our ability to function properly.

Anger and aggression sometimes seem to be protective because they bring energy to bear on a particular situation, but that energy is blind. It takes a calm mind to be able to consider things from different angles and points of view.

Forgiveness is how we put a stop to anger, ill-will and a desire for revenge.

And each of these will guide us towards one ultimate truth: anger has to be processed. It cannot simply be locked away. Calming your mind and turning that anger into something else is the very....

Soon we would have the right kind of a world. Do I appreciate my unique opportunity to be of service?

Meditation for the Day

Today can be lived in the consciousness of Gods contact, upholding you in all good thoughts, words, and deeds. If sometimes there seems to be a shadow on your life and you feel out of sorts, remember that this is not the withdrawal of Gods presence, but only your own temporary unwillingness to realize it. The quiet gray days are the days for doing what you must do, but know that the consciousness of Gods nearness will return and be with you again, when the gray days are past.

What the Upcoming Winter Solstice Has In Store For Each Sign of the Zodiac "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

As we move into Capricorn season on December 21st, we are also going to begin the celebration of the winter solstice.  This is a time in which we can and should all be working as best we can to reap the energetic benefits.

The Winter or December solstice itself is a celebration of sorts. During this time, many people work to acknowledge the presence of spirits and work towards more proper manifestations. This solstice is one that marks the true beginning of winter, and thus the time when the days are darkest and the nights are longest. During this time nature is resting, and we can all benefit from the seeds being sown.

During the solstice, we reflect and work to nourish our minds and bodies from the inside out. Whether you are nervous about all of this or patiently waiting for it does not matter, it will hit you just the same. To learn how the energies of this solstice might affect you take a peek below at what your sign has headed towards it.

Aries

As this solstice occurs, you will be finding yourself in a much happier place. A lot of things you would normally ignore will be at the forefront of your mind. The universe is going to make known where you need to be focusing so do not ignore the signs before you.

While you might not see things as they are just yet, it will all make sense later on. If something catches your attention dont waste any time trying to avoid it, address it and move forth. Now is the time to listen to your inner being.

Taurus

As this solstice occurs, you will be given lots of opportunities. An ego boost is in order and it might finally put you where you need to be in regards to your self-esteem. Youre about to have a lot of success coming your way and you definitely deserve all of it.

Gemini

During the solstice, Gemini is going to be working through some serious issues. While things could play out just fine in the end, you dont want to have to see where this is going. Just do your best and prepare for the worst. Whatever happens, will happen.

Cancer

As this solstice occurs, you are going to be feeling quite nervous. You need to work on being patient and holding yourself down. You cannot keep pushing people in the ways that you tend to.

This solstice is going to have you feeling quite thankful for the small sense of stability that you do have and working to find more. A light will be shed on some hard to swallow events and you might not know how to react. Just take things one step at a time.

Leo

This solstice is going to be forcing yo...

Bolton: No Trump-Putin Meeting While Russia Holds Ukrainian Ships, Sailors "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

U.S. national-security adviser John Bolton says there will be no meeting between President Donald Trump and Russian President Vladimir Putin while Moscow still holds the Ukrainian ships and sailors it seized near Crimea.

I dont see circumstances in the foreseeable future where such a meeting could take place until the ships and the crews are released, Bolton told reporters on December 13.

A Ukrainian serviceman stands on board a Coast Guard ship in the Sea of Azov. (file photo)

Russia seized three Ukrainian Navy ships on November 25 and arrested 24 sailors in the Kerch Strait that links the Black Sea with the Sea of Azov.

Moscow alleged that the vessels had illegally entered Russian territorial waters near the Crimea region, which Russia occupied and annexed from Ukraine in 2014.

Ukraine and most UN member states do not recognize the annexation.

NATO has pledged support for Ukraines navy, with Secretary-General Jens Stoltenberg saying on December 13 that Russia must immediately release the sailors and ships they seized and allow freedom of navigation including free access to Ukrainian ports in the Sea of Azov.

This is part of Russias pattern of destabilizing behavior, Stoltenberg added. We strongly condemn Russias illegal annexation of Crimea.

Putin and Trump briefly discussed the matter on the sidelines of the Group of 20 summit in Argentina on December 1, the Kremlin said.

On the eve of the summit, Trump announced he would not hold a formal one-on-one meeting with Putin, citing the Kerch Strait incident.

The organization of an independent Ukrainian Orthodox Church comes amid a simmering war between Ukraine and Russia, which annexed Crimea in 2014. Russian Orthodox priests in Ukraine, who have reported to Moscow for centuries, have downplayed Putins role in the fighting.

Its not clear who Ukrainians might elect to take over for the incumbent leader, but sidelining him would end a relationship that has empowered Russian leaders in Ukraine since the 17th Century.

The late Patriarch Alexy II, was reportedly identified in Soviet archives as a KGB asset. His successor, the incumbent Russian Orthodox Patriarch Kirill, also is widely suspected of being a KGB agent, KGB-connected, one Baltic diplomat told the Washington Examiner.

This is the understanding [based on] the way the Russian Orthodox Church tries to support Russias aggression, the diplomat said on condition of anonymity.

Its not clear who Ukrainians might elect to take over for Kirill, but sidelining the Moscow patriarch would end a relationship that has empowered Russian leaders in Ukraine since the 17th Century. Patriarch Kirills predecessor, Alexy II, was reportedly identified in Soviet archives as a KGB asset.

A shift in the leadership of the Orthodox Church could make it much harder for Putin to execute the hybrid war tactics that allowed Russia to seize valuable swaths of Ukraine without launching a conventional military invasion. Those tactics involved cyberattacks and the deployment of Russian special forces who fought in unmarked uniforms, which allowed Russia to portray the clash as an example of Ukrainian persecution against ethnic Russians.

The Russian government has been using and will continue to use the Russian Orthodox Church as a geopolitical tool, a senior State Department official told the Washington Examinerin a recent interview. The Ukrainian people have a right to self-determination in religious affairs.

Theres no doubt that the Russian Orthodox Church was one of the main tools in the toolbox of Kremlin, the Baltic diplomat said.

9 Strange Things That Affect Spiritually Gifted People "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

While we all have things that make us special, there are some of us with gifts that go far beyond those of most. These gifts are often quite easily spotted in others but when it comes to looking for them in ourselves, we fall short.

If youre wondering whether you have a gift, chances are asking those around you is the best place to start. They should be able to point you in the right direction to begin looking. That being said, if you are not comfortable doing that you could look for the following signs.

Spiritual gifts could be anything from the ability to comfort others to actually being able to talk to the dead or anything in-between. They come in all shapes and sizes and each one is given for a specific reason. The universe always sets us up in the ways we need to be, if youre gifted in this way eventually you will realize it.

9 Things That Usually Affect Spiritually Gifted People:

1. They are strongly affected by the energies of their surroundings.

Gifted people are not able to avoid the energies before them. While other people are able to ignore them gifted people cannot for the most part help but take them all in. The energy of a room can have drastic effects on a gifted person.

2. They can usually sense changes in nature.

Gifted people usually can tell when the weather is about to change. It could be clear out and this person would still know somehow that it was about to start raining. They are able to predict the weather much more accurately than most others and tend to do so far sooner than the weatherman does. If they say something is about to happen, you should listen to their intuition it is much stronger than yours.

3. Their nightmares and dreams are so real they feel more like memories.

Gifted people tend to have quite vivid nightmares and dreams because they are much more than just nightmares and dreams. You see, when we are sleeping the veil is thin and things from the other side can make communication through our minds eye. Those who are no more tend to speak to gifted people during their sleep more often than you might think.

4. They are often always surrounded by strangers.

Gifted people are often always surrounded by other people. Those who need to be fixed or saved are drawn to the gifted individual. While the gifted person needs to know when to cut ties, often it is something that they struggle with. People are always wanting to get something from this kind of person and it can be quite draining.

Oceans of garbage prompt war on plastics "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Faced with images of turtles smothered by plastic bags, beaches carpeted with garbage and islands of trash floating in the oceans, environmentalists say the world is waking up to the need to tackle plastic pollution at the source.

Stories on social media of giant seas of floating waste or a beached whale found in Indonesia with six kilos (13 pounds) of plastic in its stomach are bringing plastic pollution into the spotlight.

There is no question plastic is having a moment, said George Leonard, chief scientist at Ocean Conservancy.

Eight million tonnes of plastic is dumped into the oceans each year, according to a study in the Science journal.

CC0 Creative Commons

We are in a moment in time where we are starting to stare the problem in the face, and were quite optimistic and hopeful that we can solve it.

Leonard and other environmental experts are optimistic the exposure will make the problem of plastics hard to ignore and focus attention on how best to deal with such waste.

Eight million tonnes of plastic is dumped into the oceans each year, according to a study in the Science journal.

But that is only what comes from the land, said Francois Galgani, researcher with the French institute Ifremer, estimating another two million tonnes could come from ships especially fishing vessels.

As a consequence more than 700 species are impacted, including turtles who confuse plastic bags with the jellyfish they eat, Galgani said.

More than 5 billion plastic bags are used every year, and a ban step by step, country by country is underway, the first phase towards a possible general ban. Bags could be followed by bans on plastic straws and cotton swabs.

The European Union wants to ban certain single-use plastics by the end of 2021. For Galgani, that would be good news, as it would represent around 30 to 40 percent of the plastic that ends up in the oceans.

Everyone is working for the good cause, even industries, he said.

Cleaning up?

But according to a study in Science Advances review, from the 8.3 billion tonnes of plastic produced between 1950 and 2015, 6.3 billion tonnes became garbage that was not very biodegradable material and only 9 percent was recycled.

For Greenpeaces Mirjam Kopp, though, recycling is not enough.

We cannot continue this business as us...

The Bigelow Foundation and Angela Thompson Smith "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Reality Denied

I was recently re-reading John B Alexander's book "Reality Denied." (2017. Anomalist Books, San Antonio, Texas.) In chapter one he relates his experiences working for Robert Bigelow's National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS.) On page four, Alexander writes of Bigelow "...NIDS was not his first foray into supporting PSI research. For a time, Angela Thompson had done work at the Bigelow Foundation..." I wondered just who Angela Thompson was, so conducted some research.

Angela Thompson Smith

Dr Thompson Smith is listed as a member of the advisory board of the Exopolitics Institute.  Here, I found:

"Dr Angela Thompson Smith's primary qualifications were in nursing and social work in the U.K. She gained her BSc in Psychology at the University of Wales, in Cardiff; her M.S. at the Facility of medicine of Manchester University, England and later, her PhD. in Psychology with Saybrook University, San Fransisco, CA. Dr Smith continued her education with united Way of Southern Nevada/UNLV where she completed the certificate in Non-profit management.

Dr Smith has a wide experience of research and management having worked as a research analyst at the University of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey (UMDNJ) and, later as a staff member with the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research (PEAR) Laboratory, at Princeton University, New jersey. In the southwest, Dr Smith became Research Coordinator with the Bigelow Foundation and taught professional; development courses through the University of Nevada, Adult Continuing Education program.

Following five years as a staff member of PEAR (1987-1992) Dr Smith was employed as Research Coordinator with the Bigelow Foundation (1992-1994.) Prior to The Bigelow Chair in Consciousness Studies at The University of Nevada Las Vegas (UNLV), before the Consciousness Research laboratory at UNLV, and before the National Institute for Discovery Science (NIDS) in Las Vegas, there was the Bigelow Foundation. Incidentally, according to the Secretary of Nevada business name search,  NIDS is still listed as an active business name as of 2018.

Build Your Own Anechoic Chamber "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For professional-level sound recording, youll need professional-level equipment. Microphones and mixing gear are the obvious necessities, as well as a good computer with the right software on it. But once you have those things covered, youll also need a place to record. Without a good acoustic space, youll have all kinds of reflections and artefacts in your sound recordings, and if you cant rent a studio you can always build your anechoic chamber.

While it is possible to carpet the walls of a room or randomly glue egg crate foam to your walls, [Tech Ingredients] tests some homemade panels of various shapes, sizes, and materials against commercially available solutions. To do this he uses a special enclosed speaker pointed at the material, and a microphone to measure the sound reflections. The tests show promising results for the homemade acoustic-absorbing panels, at a fraction of the cost of ready-made panels.

From there, we are shown how to make and assemble these panels in order to get the best performance from them. When dealing with acoustics, even the glue used to hold everything together can change the properties of the materials. We also see a few other cost saving methods in construction that can help when building the panels themselves as well. And, while this build focuses on acoustic anechoic chambers, dont forget that there are anechoic chambers for electromagnetic radiation that use the same principles as well.

How Osinbajo Settles Rift Within Delta APC "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

LAGOS DECEMBER 15TH (URHOBOTODAY)-For most All Progressives Party, APC, faithful in Delta State, the recent intervention of the Vice President, Prof Yemi Osinbajo, in the crisis that rocked the party for more than a year was nothing short of a life booster.
Indeed, some party men had almost lost hope and nervy that they would go into the governorship elections, less than three months away, in an incoherent manner, especially as the sharp contentions remained even after the mediation of the National Chairman, Comrade Adams Oshiomhole, some few months back.
However, Osinbajo, who came with a masterstroke incubated with President Muhammadu Buhari, pulled the party from threatening catastrophe, and as it stands, APC, outside some common pockets of disagreements, is bubbling with a newfound unity.
A clear indication of the new order was the pronouncement, few days ago, by the leader of one of the two main factions, actually the founder of the party in the state...

The Incident in the Strait of Kerch: a Middle-Eastern Perspective "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

5c0ebd04183561

The Strait of Kerch, a location that is not often mentioned in the Middle Eastern media or social media has become rather more familiar in that region since Ukrainian ships recently entered Russian territorial waters in the Black Sea.

In the Arab world a number of journalists have discussed the incident: they have tended to treat the two sides as equals and have focused on the military aspects rather than on the background and the reasons for what has happened.

Others have looked at the incident in a wider and more objective context, and considered the possible consequences. Thus the Al Mayadeen television channel, based in Lebanon, takes the position that the steps leading to the crisis were deliberately engineered. It points to the fact that the incident occurred while preparations were under way for a meeting between the Russian and US Presidents on the sidelines of the G-20 summit in Argentina. That meeting did not take place Donald Trump was pressurised by the powerful military-industrial lobby into calling off the planned one-to-one talk with Vladimir Putin.

Petro Poroshenko, the Ukrainian President, has declared a state of combat readiness and has styled himself as the head of the war party, in the hope that this will increase his ratings ahead of next years elections and he will be able to stay in power. Nevertheless, his popularity is currently at an all-time low. His actions are supported by a group of powerful American organisations, who are involved in preparing and taking decisions that are, in effect, equivalent to issuing a challenge to Moscow.

For a number of Ukrainian commentators, their countrys president is a provocateur who makes political attacks against Russia, with the support of the West, particularly the US, which uses the situation as a way of putting pressure on the Kremlin. The West is stepping up its campaigns against Moscow: approving and spreading false accusations of spying and undermining Western values and political systems, making accusations about the use of poisonous substances etc. This conduct amounts to a continuous policy of resisting Moscows influence, just as happened in the Cold...

Und noch ein Lesetipp: Zu Besuch in Xinjiang, der Provinz mit den Uiguren, die vor ein paar Jahren in Unruhen den Aufstand wagten und seit dem ist da Lockdown. Also nicht im Sinne von "Panzer rollen durch die Stadt", nein nein, im Sinne von: berwachungs- und Polizeistaat. Es geht damit los, dass er da Freunde trifft, und die warnen ihn eindringlich, nicht am Telefon ber Politik zu reden.

Spter, in einer Bar, nach mehreren Bieren, fragen sie die Locals, ob es stimmt, dass man innerhalb von maximal 30 Minuten von den Bullen abgeholt wird, wenn man am Telefon ber Politik redet. Ihre Antwort:

I got weird looks after that, but the consensus seemed to be: Nah, never heard of anything like it. Why would you do that anyway?
Da luft es mir klter den Rcken runter als wenn sie von gewaltttiger Unterdrckung geredet htten.

In der ganzen Stadt gibt es unfassbar viel Polizei und Propagandaposter, beim Betreten von Einkaufszentren und Lden muss man den Pass zeigen und/oder es gibt Gesichtserkennung und wenn der Cop schlechte Laune hat, dann gibt es einmal Abtasten.

Weiter unten geht es um Religion:

A big white wall was painted with scenes of ethnic harmony. One scene said in very clear terms: No Illegal Religious Activities Allowed. No religious activities at all allowed in public places. Do not interfere with marriage, family planning, or education in the name of religion. Speaking of religion, we saw a few mosques, but many looked abandoned, or taken over by local committees, or Communist Party branches. No call to prayer. Certainly nobody praying. Islam has been extirpated from the public space. Its hardly visible at all.

Lesenswertes Essay ber "Shame Storms", von einer ... "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Lesenswertes Essay ber "Shame Storms", von einer konservativen Frau, die schon mal einen erlebt hat, als das noch ein neues Phnomen war. Aber es geht auch um andere. Ich finde Shame Storm ja zu sanft. Das sind Online-Lynchmobs. Wie Hynen.

Ich verlinke das vor allem, weil sie einige Abstze in die Ausreden und Rechtfertigungen der Teilnehmer und Auslser solcher Online-Lynchmobs investiert. Hier ist z.B. ein schnes Beispiel:

Most victims of public shaming arent nationally famous editors like Ian Buruma. They are ordinary folks like ID Adam, who lost his job at a box assembly company in Winston-Salem after reports that he racially profiled a black woman at a community pool. It turned out that he, as the pool chair on duty, had asked to see her ID, because, when signing in, she had given an address on a street in the neighborhood where no houses had yet been built. It took him days to get his side of the story into the papers, and it didnt make him any less fired.
Schon im alten Rom wusste man: Audiatur et altera pars. Immer auch die andere Seite zu Wort kommen lassen.

Das muss man sich mal auf der Zunge zergehen lassen. Je weiter sich unsere Technik entwickelt, desto mehr fllt unsere Zivilisation zurck. Das alte Rom haben wir schon ... unterholt.

Aber im Gegensatz zu mir hat sie noch Hoffnung und hat sich mit ihrem Ex-Freund getroffen, der ihren Online-Lynchmob damals ausgelst hatte, und sucht mit ihm nach Lsungen.

Todds advice for our fellow-shamed was no better than mine. When a tsunami is heading for your house, at a certain point you have to say, Im just gonna stand here and hold this piece of plywood and see whats left standing when its all over. Arguing back is no use. If youre tweeting, youre losing. Even in the immediate aftermath of the C-SPAN2 incident, when Todd, on his blog, attempted to make his case at length against my evil beliefs, he saw his arguments get lost in the maelstromequally ignored by both supporters and detractors. If we had a breakthrough in our conversation, that was it: There is no content to a shame storm. It is mindless by its very nature. It is indifferent to truth, even in cases where the truth could possibly be determined. Therefore, like the Ring, it cannot be used for good.

The solution, then, is not to try to make shame storms well targeted, but to make it so they happen as infrequently as possible.

A social credit system for scientists? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Researchers in China who commit scientific misconduct could soon be prevented from getting a bank loan, running a company or applying for a public-service job. The government has announced an extensive punishment system that could have significant consequences for offenders far beyond their academic careers.

Under the new policy, dozens of government agencies will have the power to hand out penalties to those caught committing major scientific misconduct, a role previously performed by the science ministry or universities. Errant researchers could also face punishments that have nothing to do with research, such as restrictions on jobs outside academia, as well as existing misconduct penalties, such as losing grants and awards.

Almost all aspects of daily life for the guilty scientists could be affected, says Chen Bikun, who studies scientific evaluation systems at Nanjing University of Science and Technology.

The policy, announced last month, is an extension of the countrys controversial social credit system, where failure to comply with the rules of one government agency can mean facing restrictions or penalties from other agencies.

The punishment overhaul is the governments latest measure to crack down on misconduct. But the nature and extent of the policy has surprised many researchers. I have never seen such a comprehensive list of penalties for research misconduct elsewhere in the world, says Chien Chou, a scientific integrity education researcher at Chiao Tung University in Taiwan.

The Yellow Vest Insurgency: Whats Next? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Paris, France, April 2017: Macron Unveils Assault on Workers Rights.

Paris, France, December 2018: A potential worldwide insurgency of the working class starts in France as Yellow Vests occupy the streets.

Some 75% of the French back the gilets jaunes. And this support has held up despite the violence.1

The French Yellow Vests Insurgency may or may not grow into a major threat to the established order; nobody knows for sure how it will play out.

Nevertheless, the undertone has been obvious for some years. Once the world publicly recognized a division between the 1% and everybody else, the stage was set for flare-ups, like the Yellow Vest Insurgency movement, as tens of thousands of people dressed in bright yellow vests hit the streets.

Why would tens of thousands of people wearing bright yellow vests, similar to roadside workers, hit the streets? Answer: Theyre pissed off!

And, where do tens of thousands of the yellow vests come from? In 2008 France passed a law requiring all motorists to have high-visibility vests in vehicles as a safety measure should the driver need to exit a vehicle on a roadside. Therefore, everybody with a vehicle in France has a yellow vest.

It goes without saying that, over the past three decades, neoliberal globalization set the table for dissolution of the middle class as wages around the world collapsed into a SE Asian vortex of slave labor. This is the heart of the matter behind the Yellow Vest movement, albeit sparked by the Macron governments new fuel taxes. This is also the biggest reason why a worldwide revolution of the working classes may actually happen, inclusive of pretty much everybody below the top 1% plus the upper-upper-middle-class.

So far, repercussions have been potent on a worldwide basis. For example, retail stores in Cairo have been ordered by the police not to sell yellow vests. Egypts abusive dictator General Abdel Fattah al Sisi is looking over his shoulder at France where Yellow Vests have established a foothold thats spreading like a house afire.

Without doubt, governments are panicked over the prospect of radicalization of the international working class. In France, working class demands include social equality, wage increases, a halt of militarism, reinstituting the wealth tax, and the overthrow of unpopular governments, making Macron look an awful lot like a modern-day clone of Louis XVI (beheaded in 1793).

How a National Security Investigation of Huawei Set Off an International Incident "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It was a message that federal authorities had grown accustomed to hearing: The global bank HSBC belatedly realized it had been processing financial transactions that might have run afoul of American law.

HSBC had repeatedly been penalized for helping clients launder money. Now, though, there was a different problem. From 2009 to 2014, HSBC helped the Chinese telecommunications giant Huawei move money in Iran, in breach of United States sanctions. This time, the bank said, it had a good excuse: Huawei, and one of its top executives, tricked HSBC into handling the business.

This month, the matter exploded into an international incident that shook global financial markets and threatened to deepen tensions between the American and Chinese governments. Meng Wanzhou, Huaweis chief financial officer and a daughter of the companys founder, was arrested in Vancouver by Canadian authorities who were acting at the behest of American prosecutors.

The details of the criminal charges against Ms. Meng, filed under seal, remain murky. But court filings in Canada and interviews with people familiar with the Huawei investigation show that the events leading to her arrest were set in motion years ago.

Footnote in Muellers Filing About a Mysterious FBI Interview With Peter Strzok Raises Questions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed his memo responding to Flynn at the Friday afternoon deadline and it confirmed General Flynn was set up.

Mueller did not release the original 302 report on Flynn which was taken by Special Agent Joe Pientka and Peter Strzok in January of 2017.

Instead, Mueller cited a 302 interview with Peter Strzok taken on July 19, 2017 about the ambush interview he had with General Flynn earlier that year.

Mueller redacted the name of the other FBI agent who was with Strzok interviewing Flynn but we know its Joe Pientka.

The missing original 302 report on Flynn immediately raised red flags but an interesting footnote in Muellers filing is raising even more questions.

According to a footnote (screenshot below), Peter Strzok was also interviewed on July 19th, 2017 (4 days after his paramour Lisa Page was removed from Muellers investigation) in relation to other matters, not as part of the investigation of [Flynn] or any investigation of Strzoks conduct.

How an App Can Help Fight Loneliness in Old People at Christmas "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Phys.org:

[...] only 17% of their [elderly] clients currently access the internet. As Jack explains: "Family and friends often use technology to find out things for me when I am stuck. However, most of my friends do not have internet access. They did not use technology in their working lives, as they were either farmers or manual workers. They still just ring people up or ask their children or grandchildren to use technology for them."

Technology can help, as long as it focuses on helping older people with overcoming the concerns that hold them back from meeting people outside the house. Using the insights from the research, we developed an app that draws on open data about events and volunteering opportunities nearby.

Older people can create user profiles to set their preferences for events according to cost and location. They can then review the transport options and routes to the event on an age-friendly map which includes the location of bus stops and car parks as well as nearby toilets and benches. If they select an event they want to attend, it's recorded in a calendar. The app can also be accessed by family, friends or carers who can search and plan on their behalf. This allows for the app to also be beneficial to older adults that do not have internet access.

But, even with this support, it's striking how few listings of events and transport options were available for older people over the festive period. Without more efforts to remedy the crisis of loneliness and isolation in the elderly, the festive season may still be anything but a season of cheer for many.

If kids and grandkids can't go to grandma's house, an app can help grandma come to them?

The Nigerian military on Friday lifted a ban on UNICEF operations in the countrys northeast, after accusing the aid agency of training spies supporting Boko Haram jihadists.

The ban was revoked after a meeting between the military and the aid agency late Friday, where there was an intervention by well-meaning and concerned Nigerians, army spokesman Onyema Nwachukwu said.

During the meeting, the Theatre Command admonished the representatives of the organization to desist from activities inimical to Nigerias national security and capable of undermining the ongoing fight against terrorism and insurgency, he said in a statement.

Global Warming Has Nothing to Do with the Sun? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Those who have come forward and presented evidence the sun is the leading cause of global warming have been typically silenced because that results produces no pot of endless government grants to justify taxes. It is interesting that while they claim use sunscreen because you can get skin cancer from the sun when it comes to global warming, the sun has nothing to do with it.

10 YEARS AGO TODAY on December 13th, Al Gore Predicted North Pole Would Be COMPLETELY ICE-FREE in Five Years! The problem we face is that when there is an endless pot of money available, people will say whatever it takes to get their hands on it.

Every spending bill in Congress needs an economic study to make some bogus claim. I was told to be a good boy. Pump out studies to support legislation and would earn millions per year. I declined the offer. I said I actually enjoy the research following the breadcrumbs to see where they lead. I guess when you can trade and make money it eliminates those types of temptations.

7-Year-old Indigenous Girl Dies at US Border While in Federal Custody "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published December 15, 2018 

Jakelin Caal Maquin died while in custody of U.S. Customs and Boder Protection

LORDSBURG, N.M.   A seven-year-old girl from Guatemala died of dehydration and shock at the U.S. southern border near Lordsburg, New Mexico while in custody of U.S. Customs and Border Protection (CBP) on December 7, 2018.

According to CBP records, the girl, Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquina, and her father were part of a group of 163 people who turned themselves in about 10 p.m. on December 6, 2018. About eight and half hours later, Jakelin began having seizures at 6:25 a.m.  Emergency responders, who arrived soon after, measured her body temperature at 105.7 degrees. She reportedly had not eaten or drank water for several days. She was flown to a hospital in El Paso, Texas.  She died later that day.

It is now known why she was not given wateror what transpiredduring the eight hours prior to her seizures.

Her family were from the region of Alta Verapaz and their first language was Quechua, which is an indigenous language of Indian tribes of Central America and South America.

Jakelin death came three days after her seventh birthday.

Her death brought the ire of Congresswoman Norma Torres (D-Calif.), who was born in Guatemala, immigrated to the U.S. as a child, and is currently the only member of Congress of Central American descent.

Torres released this statement:

I am appalled by the Trump administrations response to the death of Jakelin Amei Rosmery Caal Maquina, a 7-year-old Guatemalan girl in Department of Homeland Security (DHS) custody.

Lets be clear: when a U.S. government agency has a 7-year-old girl in its custody, that girls health and safety is the responsibility of that agency. But DHS has issued an official statement that tries to wash its hands of all culpability. Thats unacceptable: they must come clean with the facts.

I am even more disgusted that Secretary Kristjen Nielsen is already blaming this death on Jakelin and her father. She should know better than to blame the victim. Making the decision to migrate is not easy, and migrants know that the journey is risky. They are coming here because they have no other choice: their governments have failed to protect them from gangs or allo.........

Special Needs Cat Gets The Most Magical Cat Tree "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Wolfie was rescued after living behind a building with his siblings on Skid Row in Downtown Los Angeles. From the moment he arrived in his new home, there was always something different about Wolfie. He was a very sickly kitten, and his mom eventually discovered that he was born with a severely kinked esophagus. Once he started eating an all-liquid diet, he became much healthier, and has now transformed into the funniest, sweetest cat. 

Oh my gosh, he's hilarious, Jacqueline Santiago, Wolfies mom, told The Dodo. He's spunky and makes the silliest faces. He's a total mamas boy. He loves all cats and wants to play with everyone.

Despite his special needs, Wolfie doesnt seem to have any idea hes any different, and loves playing with all his cat siblings whenever he gets the chance. Between Santiago and her roommate, there are five cats living in their house. They all get along great and love to hang out together, and so the two friends decided they wanted to get them something they could all enjoy together a gigantic cat tree

My roommate and I had been researching cat trees because we found our other trees were a bit too small for her cat plus our four other kitties, Santiago said. We wanted something that could accommodate everyone's needs.

Credit: Jacqueline Santiago

They decided to order a custom cat tree from Hollywood Kitty Company, and began working with the designer to come up with something that would work for each one of their furry family members. 

The decaying tree stump on the right was made for my cat Piper who needed her own private space, Santiago said. The larger platforms accommodate our bigger cats like Leonidas and Noelle. Our kitty Khaleesi loves all the branches and there is a bed right in the middle just for her. Wolfie is a huge fan of being on top, as is Leo, so we made sure there was several tall platforms so there would be no fighting over the top spot. As we disc...

4 Common Causes of Joint Pains That You Should Know "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Published December 15, 2018

So, you have been having a lot of pain in your shoulders and you think it is because of the sleeping posture that has caused this pain. Well, think again. Sleeping postures do not lead to chronic pain. This might be an indication that you have some health issues that is causing the joint pain. It is not just the shoulders that we are talking about. Joint pains can happen to any part of the body, and if the pain becomes unbearable, then there can be several reasons behind it. Here are some of the most common causes of joint pains that are often diagnosed by orthopedic doctors:

1. Arthritis probably, the first cause that will automatically come to your mind when you have joint pains is arthritis. In fact, most of the cases where people have joint pains result in this medical condition. So, you never know if you have it unless you get properly diagnosed. Your doctor will be able to tell you what type of arthritis it is. Generally, people are diagnosed with osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis. Treatments like physiotherapy, acupuncture, taking joint pain supplements like Artroser, and numerous others can help to deal with arthritis.

2. Chronic fatigue syndrome have you ever noticed that your entire body starts to ache when you work for long hours or for days at a stretch? This is known as chronic fatigue syndrome which is a certain disorder that takes place when your body is too tired. More often than not, it is the joints that reflect the pain. Sometimes, the pain is so much that you cant even get up from the bed. So, check with a doctor when such a thing happens. Massages and a few physiotherapy sessions can deal with such joint pains.

3. Bursitis this is a condition when there are fluid-filled sacs in your bone joints. Bursitis can turn out to be very painful if it is not detected timely. When there is an inflammation of the bursae in your body, it tends to secrete a fluid that gets filled in sacs. These will slowly move towards the joints in the body and soon there will be a certain discomfort. This discomfort will quickly turn out to be painful. It will be wise to visit a doctor because bursitis often does not get detected unless tested.

4. Gout another terrible condition that needs immediate cure is gout. It is caused when the content of uric acid in the body increases to a great extent. The first signs

Cancers Effect on the Native American "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Photo courtesy of the Seneca Nation of Indians Official Newsletter.

Publisehed December 15, 2018

Anyone who has had cancer affect either themselves or a loved one, knows how much of a toll it can take on a family unit. This impact is compounded when you entire community seems to be disproportionately affected as well. Cancer is certainly an illness that affects  many different types of people, but Native Americans are historically  disproportionately affected by this group of diseases. Many factors contribute to this groups many diagnoses, from genetics to outside forces like hazardous material dumping. Despite these terrible circumstances, Native Americans are working to educate their communities about the dangers of cancer and the importance of self-care and proper screenings.

The Facts

According to the National American Indian Cancer Foundation, cancer in Native Americans is the number one cause of death in women and the number two cause of death for men. Native American women are most commonly diagnosed with breast, lung and colorectal cancers respectively, and men of this population are most commonly diagnosed with prostate, lung, and colorectal cancers.

Native Americans have the lowest survival rates for nearly all types of cancer of any subpopulation. This is mainly due to delayed detection, resulting in diagnosis and treatment in later stages of the illness, which reduces a patients life expectancy. Also, life choices and genetic family history of cancer play a role.

Lack of Resources

While lifestyle health issues like smoking, diet, and even genes can lead to a persons cancer diagnosis, there are other contributing factors that cant be as easily mitigated. Native Americans who live on reservations often live in rural areas without access to oncology services. The primary health care on reservations is provided by either a tribally operated program or the Indian Health Service. These resources are usually underfunded, which means that the services tend to be subpar, leaving the Native American people with limited availability of preventative programs, cancer screenings,...

When Republicans Don't Like What The Voters Decide... "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"




I was shocked when the Florida Republican Party seemed so calm when Amendment 4 passed in November. It's going to probably mean a million new voters, many of then not especially GOP-friendly. Florida was one of only 4 states, the others being Kentucky, Iowa and Virginia, where convicted felons do not regain the right to vote after serving out their sentences. Amendment 4 was designed to automatically restore the right to vote for people with prior felony convictions-- other than convicted murderers or those who committed felony sexual offenses-- on completion of their sentences, including prison, parole, and probation. The victory for Amendment 4 was massive-- 64.55% to 35.45%. Compare that to Rick Scott's win in the Senate race (50.1-49.9%) or Ron DeSantis' win for governor (49.6-49.2%). 5,148,926 people voted to allow felons to regain their right to vote, over a million more people than those who voted for Scott and DeSantis (who both opposed the amendment). The potential to change politics in Florida is enormous. It seems like Republican politicians woke up to that after the vote sand are now moving against what they call "implementation," although the amendment seems clear enough that no actual implementation is needed.


Mitch Perry's essay for the Florida Phoenix, Key lawmakers now saying they may need to interpret what voters meant in approving Amendment 4 to restore felon voting rights is another demonstration of the Republican Party's assault on democracy. He wrote that there is growing growing concern that the Republican-dominated state legislature is finding ways to "slow-walk" the process, although I don't exactly understand why there even is "a process," since the amendment should just kick in automatically next month; end of story.

Anti-cancer virus fits tumor receptor like a key in a lock "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Seneca Valley virus sounds like the last bug youd want to catch, but it could be the next breakthrough cancer therapy. Now, scientists at the Okinawa Institute of Science and Technology (OIST) and the University of Otago have described exactly how the virus interacts with tumorsand why it leaves healthy tissues alone.

The study, published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences on October 29, 2018, provides the first detailed images of how the complex Seneca Valley forms with its preferred receptor. The researchers used cryo-electron microscopy to capture images of over 7000 particles and rendered the structure in high resolution. They predict their results will help scientists develop the virus, and other viral drug candidates, for clinical use.

Raccoon Looking For A Snack Gets His Head Stuck In A Can "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This raccoon found a great snack but then, everything went downhill.

Last month in North Fort Myers, Florida, a curious raccoon thought he hit the jackpot when he stumbled upon a metal can with some soup remnants still left inside. Eager to slurp up the leftovers, the raccoon put his head in and then it got stuck.

Credit: CROW

Luckily, locals found the wayward snacker and took him to Clinic for the Rehabilitation of Wildlife (CROW) for help.

Its a good thing Dr. Robin Bast had a can opener on hand because she was going to need it.

Credit: CROW

The veterinarian and her team carefully opened the bottom end of the can to allow the raccoon to breathe better, and then administered sedation to fully remove the remaining metal can.

As the raccoon relaxed, the team was able to quickly pull the can from around the animals head and they were glad to see that the can hadnt cut into his neck or chin.

800-Pound Pig Found On Streets Just Wants Someone To Love Him "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Langley Animal Protection Society typically takes in cats, dogs and other similarly sized animals but when they got a call about an 800-pound animal who needed their help, they knew that no matter how big, they couldnt turn him away. 

Theodore the pig was found running through the streets of Langley, British Columbia, all alone, and no one has any idea where he came from. He was initially spotted on a very busy road, and so his rescuers knew it was important to get him to safety as quickly as possible so he wasnt injured by a passing car. It wasnt an easy feat getting an 800-pound pig to corporate, but his rescuers refused to give up, and Theodore became an official resident of the Langley Animal Protection Society.

His rescue was reasonably straightforward although he was very reluctant to get onto the horse trailer, Jayne Nelson, executive director of the Langley Animal Protection Society, told The Dodo. It took about two hours and a chocolate chip granola bar to convince him to jump in the trailer.

Once he was safe, Theodore's rescuers searched for his family, but unfortunately came up empty and so once he was neutered, they began the tricky task of trying to find a family who would be willing to take on such an enormous new family member.

The American Revolution: #1/10 The Conflict Ignites "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From Amazon

This epic production tells the stories of the men and events that shaped the birth of our nation. From the masterful diplomacy of Ben Franklin to the inglorious fate of Benedict Arnold, THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION is the definitive look at the struggle to create a new form of government for a New World. Examine the great changes and subtle forces that gave rise to the first democratic nation in the modern world. Revisit the twenty-year struggle for American independence through dramatic re- enactments of great battles, period art and artifacts, rare archival material, and contemporary commentary by leading historians. And hear the words of the founding fathers and the men who fought for freedom read by leading actors such as Kelsey Grammer and Michael Learned.

This six-tape set provides a clear and complete narrative of the events surrounding the birth of America. Unfortunately, it is a bit dry, as the repetitive music is distracting and certain images are shown far too frequently. However, the varied materials used to tell this tale will please history buffs. The producers employed a blend of battle reenactments, location filming, paintings, engravings, and the narratives of actual letters and documents from the 1770s. Events are covered in detailthese are not just the highlights remembered from school. However, due to the density of the material, you have to be a fan of the genre. The narrators include such well-polished actors as Charles Durning, Michael Learned, Rick Schroder, and Cliff Robertson

New Jersey Is First State To Ban All Animal Circuses "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In a landmark win for the animals, New Jersey has become the first U.S. state to ban the use of wild animals in circuses.

Signed into law today by Governor Phil Murphy, this historic measure recognizes both the animal welfare concerns and public safety concerns of circuses and other traveling shows that force wild animals to perform.

Credit: Facebook/Circus World

The new law protects many endangered and threatened species like elephants, tigers, lions, bears and primates from being made to perform for entertainment.

The news has been long-awaited by animal advocates across the country, who diligently stood behind lawmakers in their efforts to pass the so-called Noseys Law, which was named after a now-famous circus elephant from Alabama.

After decades of living in chains and being forced to give rides to her owners customers, Nosey was awarded a new home in 2017 at The Elephant Sanctuary in Tennessee.

Her former owner, Hugo Liebel, faces animal cruelty charges for the years of neglect.

The five parts of this Coley series that Gumshoe has published so far were strictly about Coley. And today, too, I will include another case study from the book-size article by his daughter Helen Coley Nauts.

But first to something new under the sun.

At least Dr Robert Gallo says its new. The Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences in the US describes a breakthrough (maybe) in cancer treatment based on realization that bacteria play a role in cancer.

This is 2018. But forty years ago, in 1978, Alan Cantwell, MD, published his first study of bacteria in cancer. He did not come to the idea theoretically, although later in cahoots with Virginia Li...

Andrew Marrs History of the World: #4 Into The Light "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

About the Series

Andrew Marrs History of the World is a 2012 BBC documentary television series presented by Andrew Marr that covers 70,000 years of world history from the beginning of human civilisation, as African nomadic peoples spread out around the world and settled down to become the first farmers, up to the twentieth century.

The series is noted for its elaborate, Hollywood-like recreations of many of the people and events on which Marr frames his story. Great care was taken in accurate costumes and the use of the original language of those portrayed. To this are added elaborate digital effects, such as a recreation of the Palace of Knossos or the diversionary channels dug to control flooding of the Yellow River.

FRENCH GENERALS ACCUSE MACRON OF TREASON OVER UN MIGRATION PACT
Open letter says French citizens have another reason to revolt

A group of French military generals have written an open letter to Emmanuel Macron accusing the French President of committing treason by signing the UN migration pact.

The pact, which was signed by 164 nations on Monday, including France, is not legally binding but greases the skids for unlimited migration to be treated as a human right and criticism of mass migration to be treated as hate speech.

A letter written by General Antoine Martinez and signed by ten other generals, an admiral and a colonel, as well as former French Minister of Defense Charles Millon, warns Macron that the move strips France of more sovereignty and provides an additional reason for an already battered people to revolt.

The letter accuses Macron of being guilty of a denial of democracy or treason against the nation for signing the pact without putting it to the people.
The French state is late in coming to realize the impossibility of integrating too many people, in addition to totally different cultures, who have regrouped in the last forty years in areas that no longer submit to the laws of the Republic, states the letter, adding that mass immigration is erasing Frances civilizational landmarks.

According to British MEP Janice Atkinson, the UN pact would lead to Europe being flooded with 59 million new migrants within the next 6 years.
Warning that the plan would lead to European countries having their culture and identity crushed, Atkinson also pointed out that the pact could lead to hate speech laws that make it illegal to use the term illegal migrants, replacing it instead with irregular migrants.

It will be illegal not to use their prescribed language, warned Atkinson, adding that European citizens could say goodbye to your democracy and your way of life if the pact is implemented.

President Macrons approval rating has sunk to 18% amidst a wave of protests riots against a number of issues, including fuel taxes and mass immigration.
Read the full letter from the French generals below (translated).

Mister President,

You are about to sign the Global Compact on Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration on 10 and 11 December, which establishes a genuine right to migration. It may impose itself on our national legislation through pre-existing treaties or the principle of common responsibility set out in this pact.

Bad News for the Empire "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It is increasingly clear that global economy is slowing down.  And a few months ago the epicenter for that slowdown was Turkey.

The Turkish Lira melted down as fears over its massive pile of corporate debt, most of it denominated in dollars, began selling off.  And that had contagion effects into Europe since yield-starved banks went looking for some thanks to the ECBs negative interest rate policy.

So, at the time everyone was losing their minds.  The very public tiff between Presidents Trump and Erdogan over geopolitical issues became acute. Days later Turkeys currency is under extreme pressure.

At the time I called this a political hit to try and remove Erdogan from power.  I was right about that. I was also right that Turkey would be helped from all sides to survive this attack.

Turkeys real allies Russia, China, Iran and Qatar came to its defense.  Qatar pledged some forex support,China upped its trade.  Bilateral swap arrangements were signed, trade deals cut, etc.

All This began shifting the Turkish economy away from the U.S. dollar and reorient itself with its biggest trading partners, which also includes the European Union.

So, imagine my shock this morning when Turkeys latest debt numbers and how theyve changed since the Lira crisis ended suddenly with the return of Pastor Andrew Brunson and laffair Kashoggi.

The sectors long-term debts reached $213 billion as of October, down $9.1 billion from the end of last year, the Turkish Central Bank said in a statement.
The bank also said the sectors short-term loans  debt that must be paid in the next 12 months fell $2.7 billion to $15.9 billion during the same period.

Those are the important numbers.  They arent good, but they are significantly better.  And exactly the kind of thing that needs to occur if Turkey is going to extricate itself from the mess it is currently in.

Raising interest rates sharply induced a mass of domestic savings, up a whopping 20% year-over-year. Turkey is now in a position to issue short-term foreign currency debt to mobilize some of that savings and convert more dollar and euro corporate debt into lira debt.

Its a shell game for sure, but its born of necessity while Turkey narrows its trade deficit.  Savings is re-denominated to assist th...

I Aint Got No Quarrel With Them Russians "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The entire anti-Russia brouhaha has reminded me of what Mohammad Ali stated after receiving notice from his local draft board that he was being forced to serve in the U.S. military during the Vietnam War. Ali declared. I aint got no quarrel with them Vietcong.

Ali had a point. After all, what had the Vietcong done to him or any other American? No Vietcong had ever come to the United States and attacked civilians, soldiers, or CIA or NSA agents. No Viet Cong had ever expressed any interest in invading and conquering the United States and taking over the federal government and the nations public-school systems. All that they were doing was trying to win a civil war that would put the entire country under the rule of Ho Chi Minh, a declared communist.

What did that have to do with Mohamad Ali or any other American? Oh, sure, the Viet Cong were killing U.S. soldiers but those soldiers were over there. Operating on orders of the Pentagon, they had invaded a foreign land thousands of miles away from the United States. They had embroiled themselves in another nations civil war. They were killing people over there. If they hadnt invaded, no Vietcong would have come to get us despite the Pentagons and CIAs Cold War claim of a worldwide communist conspiracy that was supposedly based in Moscow, Russia, whose aim was supposedly to start knocking down countries like dominoes until they finally got the Big Domino,which was the United States.

Moreover, the U.S. government never enacted any law making the Viet Cong an official enemy of the United States. And the U.S. Congress never declared war on the Viet Cong or North Vietnam, which the Constitution requires as a prerequisite for sending troops into war.

I look at the anti-Russia brouhaha in much the same way. What have them Russians done to me? What have they done to any American? In fact, what have they done to the Pentagon, the CIA, and the NSA except to deprive them of an official enemy?

Sure, I hear that them Russians bought some Facebook ads to influence my vote in the presidential election. I dont think I ever saw the ads but apparently they were designed to induce people to vote for President Trump over Hillary Clinton.

Whatever, they didnt work on me. I voted for Gary Johnson, the Libertarian Party candidate. What about those voters who were induced to vote for Trump because of those pro-Trump Facebook ads purchased by them Russians? Well, maybe we ought to reconsider the value of public (i.e.,government) schooling if peoples minds can be so easily swayed to vote for someone who they dont really want to vote for.

But heres the odd thing about the supposed Russian meddling in the 2016 presidential election. The Russians were supporting Trump because Trump was saying that he intended to establish friendly relations with....

Sleepwalkers Awoke! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Andrew Sullivan called it the Great Awokening in a shrewd New York Magazine column this week. He refers, off course, to earlier episodes of American religious hysteria, namely the Great Awakening of the 1730s that featured the Rev. Jonathan Edwards raining sulfur and brimstone down on guilt-wracked New Englanders, and then the Second Awakening of the the early 1800s that spun off innumerable Protestant sects, cults, and utopian experiments. I like the term Wokesterism because the ism part acknowledges that the current hysteria makes a religion out of politics.

Sullivans theory is that Wokesterism is an improvised replacement for sclerotic American Christianity, to fill the vacuum of entropic meaninglessness that pervades life in the republic these days. He says:

And so were mistaken if we believe that the collapse of Christianity in America has led to a decline in religion. It has merely led to religious impulses being expressed by political cults. Like almost all new cultish impulses, they see no boundary between politics and their religion.

Wokesterism eerily mirrors many of the harsher practices of the most severe American Protestantism. It offers its own original sin, white privilege, from which there is neither redemption nor hope of redemption like the old Presbyterian hell for babies who have come into this world drenched in sin. No amount of abject apology will avail for heretics to Wokesterism. The principal aims of Wokesterism are coercion of others, persecution, and punishment of the guilty (the un-Woke). Most importantly, it requires the suspension of individual conscience in order to promote unthinking, robotic obedience and mob justice. That helps explain the disgraceful blindness of the Wokester Left, especially the educated elites who work in the news media, the computer tech sector, and other creative class vocations.

One thing that Sullivan leaves out is the necessity for the Devil. That role is filled by Mr. Trump. His sinister cargo of belief, countering the Wokefullness of unicorns and rainbows, is the dark theology of MAGA, and Mr. Trumps followers are the imps, demons, incubi and succubi of deplorable fly-over land. Wokesters will spare no effort to vanquish all this wickedness, and even lying and cheating in the service of that end is considered fair play. Hence the arrant and epic dishonesty of The New York Times.

Interesting case in point: Yesterdays developments in the General Flynn court case are not even present in this mornings Times. I speak of the action on the bench of Federal Judge Emmet Sullivan. Its been brought to his attention that the scurrilous entrapment of Gen. Fly...

Scholarship Opportunity "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I have been a professor of economics at Loyola since 2001. During that time, I have had numerous excellent students, who were interested in my research projects: Austrian economics and libertarian theory. I have been lucky that many of these students, while still in high school, read my publications and listened to my speeches, some in person for example at the Mises University, and others on the web. As a result, they enrolled at Loyola in order to study with me, and my half dozen fellow free enterprise professors. This might not sound like all that much, given that we have some 200 professors, but, believe me, Loyola New Orleans is a beacon of light as far as Rothbardianism and Misesianism are concerned. At next door Tulane University, with a faculty at least triple our size, there are only two professors who fit this bill. And at LSU in Baton Rouge, quadruple our size, there is not a single solitary professor who espouses such a political economic philosophy. Yes, we have numerous social justice warriors, Marxists, feminists, professors, as do virtually all universities. But, at least at Loyola, a student will be introduced to both sides of debatable issues, unlike at most universities. As well, with so many professors who appreciate economic freedom, there are many students who also do. According to research I have seen, one of the best predictors of student satisfaction is finding friends among the student body.  You will, here at Loyola.

So, if you are a student at a junior or two year university, which has no libertarian professors, and no students of this persuasion either, think of transferring to Loyola. If you are a high school student, getting ready to apply to university, consider us. If you are a parent or grandparent of a college age person, do consider suggesting that they apply for admission to Loyola, in order to study with me and my free enterprise fellow colleagues.

Just recently, a former student of mine has set up a Walter E. Block scholarship. It is worth $25,000, for the next four years, for a total of $100,000. I am now able to disburse these funds to Loyola students who demonstrate an interest in private property, free markets and limited government. Make no mistake about this, Loyolas tuition is very high. However, my school does give generous scholarships, based on financial need, and also for other reasons. My scholarship money will be in addition to those funds, not a replacement for them. So, apply to Loyola, even if you thought our price tag was too high. With this scholarship money at my disposal, we can be financially competitive even with public universities.

The Boogeyman Is Coming for You "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The anti-terrorism unit suited up.

This was an international affair a deal between the USA and New Zealand, two members of the Five Eyes intelligence alliance.

Helicopters, tactical suits, high caliber firearmsthe whole shebang. They busted in the doors and successfully raided the multi-million-dollar compound.

What was this capturing the next in line after Bin Laden? Busting an international human trafficking ring?

Actually, elite New Zealand law enforcement was acting at the request of the United States to arrest a guy named Kim Dotcom.

Kim Dotcom is a large, jovial man of German-Swedish origins. He founded Megaupload, an online platform that allowed us to basically watch movies online for free.

Unfortunately for Kim, a lot of that content included American movies, with American copyrights.

US artists didnt get their money, which meant the US government didnt get its tax dollars.

But Kim Dotcom was a German citizen hanging out in New Zealand. So tough luck for the USA, right?

Wrong. US jurisdiction extends globally and the government is getting its pound of flesh.

Violate US copyright laws, and get your door kicked in by a SWAT team, even half a world away.

Then there was the Australian, living in London who shared leaked, classified and sensitive documents with the public.

Im talking about the founder of WikiLeaks, Julian Assange.

He walked into the Ecuadorian embassy in London six years ago, asking for asylum.

There was a Swedish warrant out for his arrest, alleging rape charges. He faced extradition to Sweden, and feared he would then be turned over to US authorities who wanted Assange taken down for exposing the extent of the spying the US government was carrying out on its own citizens.

For years it was suspected that there was a sealed US indictment against Assange. Last month, the proof emerged when the US accidentally revealed the filing, but not the specific charges.

So, weve got an Aussie journalist who might get arrested in the UK (which has an extradition agreement with the US) for a crime allegedly committed in Sweden all because the US government has a hard on for this guy.

But this journalist made the mistake of providing the world with the valuable insight that the authoritarian US government was surveilling its own citizens.

And, again, the US wants its pound of flesh.

Just recently, the US has once again flexed its glob...

A Successful Disruption "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In a devastating critique of Robert Muellers investigation of Trumps alleged Russian collusion, Peter Van Buren explains:

We last looked at what Mueller had publicly and what he didnt have some 10 months ago, and I remained skeptical that the Trump campaign had in any way colluded with Russia. Its worth another look now, but first lets give away the ending (spoiler alert!): there is still no real evidence of, well, much of anything significant about Russiagate. One thing that is clear is that the investigation seems to be ending. Muellers office has reportedlyeven told various defense lawyers that it is tying up loose ends. The moment to wrap things up is politically right as well: the Democrats will soon take control of the House; time to hand this all off to them.

Van Buren underlines the obvious when he tells us that Muellers expensive, eighteen-month long investigation turned up no evidence of the collusion in question. He also brings up all the embarrassing misadventures of Mueller as a past investigator, such as his botched examination of the anthrax cases. Van Buren might have also mentioned Muellers disastrous use of criminal Whitey Bulger as a means of going after the Mafia in Massachusetts; and the inappropriate nature of his taking the job to investigate Trump right after Trump had turned down Muellers request to become FBI Director.

Although I fully concede Van Burens points, that the investigation has proceeded too long and that it has turned up no real evidence of collusion, the more important question for me is whether it has been a productive fishing expedition. Certainly in the aid conferred on Donald Trumps enemies, Robert Mueller has performed miracles. Despite remarkably low unemployment rates, hovering around 3.7 %, robust economic growth, and the avoidance of war, Trump and his party were trounced in the elections this November. They lost the independent vote by 12%and the gender gap may have been as high as 20%.

Freegold Will Kill "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We are now in the very final stages of the most remarkable era of alchemy in the history of finance. This cycle started in 1913 with the creation of the Fed and had its death knell in 1971 when Nixon took away the gold backing of the dollar. It has been a long and slow 50 year death of the world economy and the patient has only been kept alive due to the creation of fake money, fake assets, fake (paper) gold, fake wealth, fake valuations, fake balance sheets, fake bankers, fake politicians all built on a colossal mountain of fake debt.

What will be the trigger for the coming biggest financial crisis in history? There are so many time bombs around the globe that it really doesnt matter where and how it starts. Because when it starts, there will be a chain reaction that will lead to the most spectacular economic fireworks in history.

FAKE GROWTH BASED ON FAKE MONEY

Central banks around the world have already set the coming fall in motion. What has kept the world going for so long, in spite of being bankrupt, is the massive liquidity that all central banks have added to the system. The world economy can only grow, albeit artificially, by a constant injection of liquidity. Without that the patient would die quickly. This has created an illusion of growth but all that has grown is debt. In real terms the world economy is hardly growing and how could it just based on fake money.

But central banks are now creating the perfect situation for the coming collapse. They are taking away the punch bowl that has fed all the asset and debt bubbles in recent years. It is not just the US where liquidity growth has reversed abruptly by the quantitative tapering. Also in the Eurozone, Japan, and China liquidity growth is slowing down significantly. This is all that is needed to create the perfect setup for the coming collapse. The bubbles will implode if they are not constantly expanding.

MONEY PRINTING WILL RETURN BUT TO NO AVAIL

Yes, there will be a point when stock and bond markets collapse and central banks will start wild money printing again. But since they are always behind the curve, it will all be too late and what the world economy will experience is a hyperinflationary depression that eventually leads to a...

Trump Is Innocent "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

We do not have the whole story yet about Trumps payments to several women through his lawyer Michael Cohen. As Judge Napolitano points out, there may be other evidence (records, tapes, witnesses, memos, e-mails) that will come out. We have Trumps rebuttal as presented in this news article.

However this plays out, it doesnt affect Trumps guilt or innocence. Hes innocent under the First Amendment. Trump could pay a hundred women off during an election season and still not be guilty of any crime. The crime is in campaign finance laws that are unconstitutional. They are fake laws, counterfeits, forgeries, shams. They are part of that vast superstructure of laws and regulations by which Congress has overridden the Constitution. It matters little whether this lengthy process was intended by the Framers, was a result of weaknesses in the document, or occurred as each new generation lost the meaning of the Revolution and adopted new sentiments. The effect is the same. We operate our politics in an Alice in Wonderland environment.

The First Amendment states Congress shall make no lawabridging the freedom of speech This prohibition is libertarian in nature because speech is not physically aggressive. Exceptions are carved out by libertarian theory under the heading of lies that amount to fraud or such; but these do not alter the main thrust of the First Amendment, which is to prohibit the curtailing, restriction and censorship of free speech. Naturally, property-holders can determine speech on their property, but that too doesnt alter the meaning of the First Amendment language.

The free speech right directly follows from and thus accompanies ones right to ones body, ones life, ones liberty and ones pursuit of property and happiness. The First Amendment codifies that right.

This right includes using ones resources to communicate. If Congress restricts use of ones property to create speech, thats a backdoor or indirect way of abridging speech. That kind of restriction is also ruled out by the First Amendment, by any reasonable understanding. A law whose effect is to abridge the freedom of speech without making an explicit restriction is still abridging the freedom of speech.

The Supreme Court has upheld the First Amendment on many occasions. The...

Things Look Very Bullish "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ince gold topped out in 2011, the precious metals mining sector has been where investor capital goes to die.

Mining stocks have performed miserably over the past seven years, missing out completely on the central bank-created liquidity-fest that has raised nearly every other equity sector to record highs.

But the long winter of abuse is over, claims highly-respected mining analyst John Hathaway, co-manager of the Toqueville Gold Fund. To Johns veteran eye, the conditions in this beleaguered industry have improved substantially. Mining supply is tightening while demand is rising, and the surviving companies have achieved positive cash flows at todays depressed prices.

Claiming that we are now past peak gold, Hathaway expects gold prices to move higher vigorously, propelling the shares of mining companies multiples higher from where they are today:

The industry hasnt been able to issue equity to any substantial degree for five or six years. And, so theyve gone more and more to streaming royalties, that sort of thing. But the industry is capital constrained and they always seem to be able to get capital, but what we see is a shrinking industry, shrinking gold production on a global basis and a wave of mergers and acquisitions. Weve seen quite a few recently, the combination of Barrick and Randgold would be the first. We recently saw Pan American Silver take over Tahoe, and that wasnt as big a deal, but certainly it was significant. And then there have a been a lot of little private deals you dont hear about.

The industry is running out of reserves. The reserve to production ratio is the lowest it has been in 30 years. Weve seen peak gold. And we expect that the supply of newly-mined gold will continue to decline for several more years. If you were to say to me, Gold is going to trade tomorrow at $2,000, I wouldnt change that forecast, because it takes so many years to build a gold mine. Its a lot different than shale oil, where you get small increments from a lot of different producers. Not to mention host countries even Mexico recently, which used to be thought of as a good mining province, good mining country are becoming tougher and tougher on the capital they want to enter their countries and build mines. So, the hurdle rate, the investment return is going higher and higher.

So, to try to tie that together, you have a very bullish supply and demand outlook. Declining production, declining supply, and steadily rising demand   simply coming from a rising middle class in parts of the world that most of us dont even go to. Im not talking about the kinds of things that happen in the thought process of western capital markets. Were....

Staying Warm "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Staying warm during the bitter cold takes some planning. There are plenty of people that survived with very basic means in very cold places. Luckily we have some more convenient options.  This winter is starting to look like it will be a cold one in my area, so I have been thinking about how to stay warm, especially during an emergency situation. All too often bitter cold comes with snow and ice storms too. Bitter cold is easier to handle as long as you have electricity.

A lot of gas or propane heaters do not work at all or at least work less efficiently when the power is out. Oil heaters may not function either. My Dad has one of the older Monitor heaters, and it requires power to use even though it is oil.

Blankets

One of the preps I have started putting back recently is a few inexpensive fleece blankets. You can get a dozen for $50 or so on Amazon, or you may find that you can get good ones a few at a time at your local grocery store. Of course, you may want some nicer blankets to stay cozy too. The post I link to below has a lot of options in a wide price range.

Best Wool Blankets For Survival and Emergencies

Classic Mylar Emergency Blankets

These are so inexpensive and useful that every prepper should have a dozen or two. Emergency blankets can be used for signaling or as reflectors for lights too.

Hand warmers

There are many types of hand warmers. The disposable kind is nice but they only last for 8 hours. You can get Zippo hand warmers that take lighter fluid so you can keep them going for as long as you have fuel.

Consolidate into fewer rooms

A smaller space is easier to keep warm. While you naturally dont want pipes and plumbing to freeze, you can keep some rooms quite cold and heat a few rooms nicely if needed. Sealing off rooms to a large degree can be helpful.

Draft guards

Placing anything under your door to block drafts is a good idea. Any drafts around window seals and other areas of your house may be able to be sealed with spray foam insulation. Of course, you need to be careful not to seal a house up so well that oxygen is an issue. Some heaters can deplete oxygen levels too.

American Music "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Why do Southerners continue to fall into that trap where we only talk about the years1861-1865?  There are almost 400 years of Southern culture to talk about, yet we keep limiting ourselves to just four of them.  And it doesnt matter how much of an expert someone becomes about Fredericksburg, Yankees will always have that same ace-in-the-hole comeback, You lost. But music is different.  Music is a decisive cultural venue where Yankees simply dont stand a chance.

It would be notable enough if the South contributed maybe four or five significant genres of American music but we contributed almost ALL of them!  American music has a Southern accent, because practically all of American music is Southern in both origin and identity.  Any identifiable American musical sound thats known around the world is actually a Southern sound, and whenever people talk about American music, theyre actually talking about Southern music.

Creating a list of genres of American music that comes from the South is basically the same thing as creating a list of American music.  Blues, ragtime, boogie-woogie, Dixieland,jazz, swing, country, honky-tonk, outlaw, rhythm & blues, rockabilly, rockn roll, bluegrass, western swing, coal mining, Appalachian, sacred harp, spiritual,gospel, barbershop, soul, funk, Gullah, Carolina shag, swamp rock, southern rock, Chicano rock, death metal, dirty south, parrot head, Tejano, creole,Cajun, zydeco, etc.  All of those genres are unique to the South, and were created using authentic Southern ingredients.  They didnt pass throughDixie.  They were all born in Dixie.  Additionally, those genres literally couldnt have come from anyplace else.

Southern music is like a big bowl of gumbo. Dixieland is a mixture of creole and Southern African-American music.  Rock n roll is a mixture of country and rhythm & blues.  Soul is a mixture of rock n roll and gospel. Western swing is a mixture of country and jazz.  So, not only are the genres uniquely Southern, the very ingredients from which they are compiled are also uniquely Southern.

A Progressive might scan the list of Southern musical genres and object to its accuracy because examples of so-called black music and white music were included together.  However, instead of seeing it only as a black vs white thing, Southerners recognize it as Southern,and not black or white.  The same problem arises when a non-Southerners sees a plate of black-eyed peas and cornbread,and calls it, soul food.  Southerners know that a plate of food like that is correctly called Southern food, notsoul food.  Therefore, in the South,the historically and culturally correct label for the music is Southern music,and not black or white music.

Southern music may very well be the undiscovered mother lode that weve all been seeking to help explain Southern culture to the non-Southe...

Canada Must Set Meng Completely Free, and This is Why
By Ai Jun
Global Times
2018/12/13 17:07:21

China and the US are on the cusp of a political war, a conflict without smoke. This is what Washington is telling the world. China cannot dodge it and Canada has to make its choice carefully.

When US State Department spokesperson told reporters Tuesday that the case of Meng Wanzhou, CFO of China's tech giant Huawei, "is based solely on the facts and the law," he had not assumed he would be slapped in the face very soon by his President Donald Trump and Secretary of State Mike Pompeo.

Trump said Tuesday he would intervene in Meng's arrest with the US Justice Department, if it would help promote a trade deal with China. He was echoed by Pompeo the next day, who said, "It's totally appropriate to do so. The president's mission is very clear. It's America First, right?"

What they conveyed is simple - Washington doesn't really have an independent judicial system and controversial cases with political implications can be swayed by the US president.

Trump may believe he showed goodwill to China, but he is actually feeding the belief that Meng's episode is nothing more than a political case.

From whichever perspective one looks, Meng's case seems to be related to a political war against China's rise. Washington's policy of treating China as a strategic opponent has led to a large-scale political campaign against Beijing at various levels of US government departments the judiciary, executive, and education.

After the US media hyped up that hackers working on behalf of China are believed to be responsible for the recent Marriott hotel chain data breach, US Justice Department is preparing to announce new indictments against Chinese hackers. Almost at the same time, the US Senate approved the Reciprocal Access to Tibet Act Tuesday, as a move to pile pressure on China's internal affairs.

Trump and Pompeo have made it quite clear that US national interest is above all. The current aim of US strategy is to launch an all-out offensive against China, one that has been forged at all levels.

Meng's case is obviously political, rather than a so-called crim...

China Readies Its Counterattack Against Canada

Ottawa panicked by Beijings pressure to release Meng

Waves of strong condemnation and possible counterattacks from China on Canada's detaining of Huawei executive Meng Wanzhou has sparked deep anxieties from the Canadian government and society. 

Chinese Ambassador to Canada Lu Shaye called Meng's detention "a premeditated political action in which the US wields its regime power to witch-hunt a Chinese high-tech company out of political consideration" in an article he wrote for the Globe and Mail on Thursday.

In the article, titled "After Huawei arrest, has Canada lost its sense of justice,"Lu said that the Canadian side detained Meng in an unreasonable way given that she has not been charged according to Canadian laws, and her arrest is clearly not judicial independence but a miscarriage of justice.

Meng was released on C$10 million ($7.5 million) bail on Tuesday, after being detained by Canadian authorities on December 1 on an extradition request from the US.

Chinese analysts said that the incident deeply and profoundly hurt Chinese people's long-establishing friendly feelings to Canada, who may react intensely if the Canadian side fails to correct its mistakes.

Moreover, Canada has clearly tied itself with the US' interests and lost its independence over sovereignty, which damaged its international image as people from other countries may have second thoughts about visiting Canada over concerns of unwarranted detention, Li Haidong, a professor at the Beijing-based China Foreign Affairs University, told the Global Times on Friday.

Extinction is Not an Option: The $1bn Push to Save Orcas in Washington "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

by Levi Pulkkinen / The Guardian

Governor proposes destroying dams, repairing habitats and limiting whale-watching in bid to save struggling creatures.

Five months after twin tragedies cast a spotlight on the states ailing orcas, Washington plans to spend more than $1bn to stave off extinction.

If enacted, a proposal from the governor, Jay Inslee, would knock down two dams, repair habitat and place a three-year ban on orca watching. Crucially, Inslee hopes to shore up salmon runs that feed the orca while cleaning and quieting the waters in which they live.

The deaths of two young orca this summer transfixed the nation and inspired a desperate push to save the black-and-white creatures, also called killer whales, who are treasured regional symbols. A shortage of Chinook salmon, pollution, and marine noise caused by boats which blinds their echolocation has led to diminishing numbers of orcas. Three years have passed since an orca calf born in the region has survived.

Worries of imminent extinction prompted demands for action from state leaders. Inslees answer came earlier this week as the governor, a Democrat thought to hold presidential ambitions, outlined the billion-dollar, two-year proposal.

When we save the orcas from toxins, when we save t...

GENEVA. The UN human rights chief on Friday called on the government of Democratic Republic of Congo to halt violence and inflammatory speech ahead of the countrys long-delayed December 23 presidential election.

Michelle Bachelets comments came a day after a fire at a warehouse in the capital Kinshasa destroyed thousands of voting machines and ballot boxes meant for a vote that could mark Congos first peaceful transfer of power.

Candidates for President Joseph Kabilas ruling coalition and the opposition blamed each other for the incident. Violence has flared on the campaign trail this week, with security forces killing at least two people at opposition gatherings.

In an already tense electoral environment, I urge the government to send a clear signal that threats and violence against political opponents will not be tolerated, Bachelet said in a statement

I am deeply worried about the reports of excessive use of force, including live ammunition, by security forces against opposition rallies.

Congos forensic police are investigating Thursdays blaze and the national electoral commission said the vote would go ahead as scheduled.

Security Important to Deepening Regional Integration, Says Kagame
 14 DEC, 2018 - 22:12

KIGALI. Security of the people and goods is important to deepening regional integration, Rwandan President Paul Kagame said Thursday on the annual national dialogue in the capital city Kigali.

When we talk about regional integration, we should ensure that peace and security prevails in our countries, said Kagame at the opening of the 16th National Dialogue, locally known as Umushyikirano.

Economic integration can succeed only if peace and security are established throughout the region, he said.

Rwanda has worked towards good relations in the region and integration, but the problem comes from how we work with each other, said the president.

Some countries in Rwandas neighborhood want regional integration to benefit them only but not others, according to him.

Regional integration cannot just be for you to take and you dont give anything, he said.

President Kagame who is also the chairperson of the African Union (AU), said during his tenure as the continental bodys chair, Africa has seen tangible benefits on continental integration efforts, for example, the establishment of AU Peace Fund, African Continental Free Trade Area, Protocol on Free Movement of Persons, Right of Residence and Right of Establishment.

The two-day meeting brings together members of the cabinet and parliament, representatives of the Rwandan community abroad, local government, civil society organization and diplomatic mission.

The meeting that runs through Friday mainly focuses on the transformation of the welfare of Rwandan citizens.

South Africa Joins African Tripartite Free Trade Area
 13 DEC, 2018 - 14:12
 
JOHANNESNURG. South Africa has deposited the instrument of ratification of an agreement establishing the Tripartite Free Trade Area (TFTA), the Department of Trade and Industry (DTI) said on Thursday.

The TFTA comprises three regional economic blocks the Common Market for Eastern and Southern Africa (COMESA), the East African Community (EAC), and the Southern African Development Community (SADC).

South Africa did this on the margins of a meeting of African Union (AU) trader ministers in Cairo, Egypt, on December 12-13. The deposit of the instrument means that South Africa has formally and legally committed to the TFTA.

It was the tripartite initiative that led to the work of broadening the integration beyond our existing regional communities and working toward establishment of large free trade areas across our continent, said South Africas Trade and Industry Minister Rob Davies.

Chileshe Kapwepwe, chair of the Tripartite Task Force and the secretary general of COMESA, congratulated South Africa for the action.

She said six other countries are in the process of depositing their instruments.

The TFTA was launched in June 2015 in Sharm El Sheikh, Egypt. It intends to integrate the continent and create a big market of 626 million people with a combined gross domestic product of US$1.2 trillion.

Twenty-two of 26 member states have signed the agreement. South Africa signed the agreement in July 2017 and its parliament ratified the agreement in October this year.

South Africa is the fourth country to deposit the instrument of ratification. The other three countries are Egypt, Uganda and Kenya. The agreement will enter into full force once it has been ratified by 14 countries.

South Africas trade with TFTA countries represents about 16 percent of its trade with the world, the DTI said.

Mining Firms in Zambia Mull Scaling Down Operations
13 DEC, 2018 - 16:12

LUSAKA. Mining firms in Zambia are reviewing their operations and considering scaling back substantially following the decision by the government to introduce a new mine tax regime, an industry body said.

The Zambia Chamber of Mines said the move could see a reduction in capital expenditure by over half a billion US dollars over the next three years and consequently a reduction of over 7,000 direct jobs and more than double the number of indirect jobs.

Goodwell Mateyo, the new president of the mining body said in a press release: While feedback on our representations to the Ministry of Finance is awaited, the membership remains hopeful of averting such an outcome and are strongly committed to robust engagement above and beyond the process outlined by the minister in which the reconstitution of the Tax Policy Review Committee was announced.

In the 2019 budget, the Zambian government announced a new tax regime, which comes into effect on January 1. The government intends to increase mineral royalty rates by 1.5 percentage points at all levels of the sliding scale as well as introduce a fourth tier rate at 10 percent on the sliding mineral royalty regime which would apply when copper prices rise beyond 7,500 dollars per tonne.

PRESIDENT Mnangagwa yesterday urged Zanu-PF not to be complacent after resoundingly winning the July 30 harmonised elections, saying cadres must continue working for the revolutionary party. He said Zanu-PFs victory was based on a promise to improve the lives of Zimbabweans and there was need to ensure the pledges were fulfilled.

President Mnangagwa was addressing over 6 000 delegates to the Zanu-PF Annual National Peoples Conference here yesterday afternoon.

He said Zanu-PF must realise it would be judged by its performance over the next five years in Government when elections come in 2023.

We should be warned from complacency due to our impressive showing at this years elections.

The voting patterns and subsequent results, along with the general needs of the people across the country, compel us to work harder in building the party starting from the cells/villages, upwards, said the partys First Secretary.

We must implement sustainable development programmes and fulfil the promises we made to the electorate in our manifesto.

As we work with 2023 in mind, I challenge us all, to individually and collectively introspect and pledge ourselves to be faithful and loyal to the ideals, values and principles of the party, he said.

We must be totally committed to the party and its leadership.

He said the conference was important as it was the first since the election victory.

Delegates Hail Vision 2030, Devolution
 15 DEC, 2018 - 00:12 
Cde Muchinguri-Kashiri
Zimbabwe Herald

The 17th Annual Zanu-PF Annual National Peoples Conference underway here will focus on setting the foundation for the creation of an upper middle-income society by 2030 in fulfilment of the partys promises during the July 30 harmonised election, a senior party official has said.

Addressing delegates to the conference yesterday, party national chairperson Cde Oppah Muchinguri-Kashiri said President Mnangagwa had refocused the party towards initiating accelerated economic development.

You may recall that last year the party held a special Extraordinary Congress in Harare which saw a leadership renewal, vital to the alignment of our party ethos to the revolutionary principles of the liberation struggle.

This ushered in a new era, which became a point of reference for the new dispensation.

From the party congress, Zanu-PF evolved into a united front with a clear manifesto promising our people unity, development, fighting corruption, re-engagement to reopen Zimbabwe for business with the rest of the world and employment creation; and this was in line with His Excellencys vision.

After the resounding victory during the just ended 2018 harmonised elections, we witnessed the birth of the Second Republic under the astute leadership of our partys First Secretary, His Excellency the President, Cde Emmerson Mnangagwa.

Together with the support of his able Vice Presidents he hit the ground running by forming a lean Cabinet and in the same vein spelling out his vision of opening up Zimbabwe for business aimed at also creating an upper middle income society by 2030.

These events have led us to converge here in Esigodini as we gather in unity to introspect, reflect, deliberate, plan and resolve on how best to successfully fulfil our promises made to Zimbabwean during the elections.

In his welcome remarks, Zanu-PF Matabeleland South provincial chairperson Cde Rabelani Choeni said his province welcomed President Mnangagwas pledge to immediately implement devolution of power and authority.

US$1,5bn Stabilization Deal for Zimbabwe

Sydney Kawadza in Cairo, Egypt
Zimbabwe Herald

The African Export-Import Bank (Afreximbank) has made available a US$1,5 billion stabilisation facility to Zimbabwe to mitigate the perceived risk associated with investing in the country. The facility, known as the Zimbabwe Open Facility (ZOF), was signed yesterday by Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe (RBZ) Governor Dr John Mangudya and Afreximbank president Professor Benedict Okay Oramah on the sidelines of the ongoing Intra African Trade Fair here.

Industry and Commerce Minister Nqobizita Mangaliso Ndlovu, senior Government officials, banking executives from Zimbabwe and Afreximbank witnessed the signing ceremony at the Egypt International Exhibition Centre.

The facility consists of a US$500 million nostro stabilisation facility and a US$1 billion investment guarantee.

In his remarks, Dr Mangudya said Zimbabwe was open for business and investors.

The facility guarantees investors of the safety of their investment in Zimbabwe.

It guarantees that Zimbabwe is now risk-free. It is a guarantee for investors and it will also stabilise the foreign currency situation in Zimbabwe, said Dr Mangudya.

This also means that investors can come into Zimbabwe and will be happy to put their money into the country and also that they will be able to take their money outside the country, he said.

He said investing in Zimbabwe required confidence and the US$1,5 billion deal was such a confidence-building facility and a market stabiliser.

Dr Mangudya hailed the relationship between Zimbabwe and the Afreximbank.

He said the facility was discussed in March when President Mnangagwa met Professor Oramah.

So what is now left for us is to make sure that the documentation is implemented and that the facility is put to action, he said.

Professor Oramah said the Zimbabwe Open Facility was intended to de-risk investments that come into the country.

He said ZOF was directed at foreign investors and those who wanted to deposit money in Zimbabwe.

Abstract:  Myrtus communis is an important plant in the treatment of many different diseases. The aim of this review was to determine the importance of M. communis essential oil in the treatment of hemorrhoids. For preparing this manuscript, the information was extracted from different resources. The results of clinical studies showed that M. communis essential oil (lotion or ointment) can significantly improve bleeding, permanent pain, pain during defecation, anal irritation, anal itching and anal heaviness in patients with hemorrhoids types I and II. M. communis was also effective in treating patients who did not respond to current chemical treatments (anti-hemorrhoids ointment). Further clinical studies should look into designing a suppository form of M. communis essential oil and compare its effect with the lotion and ointment forms.

Invited guests,
Members of the Media,
Ladies and Gentlemen,
Comrades and Friends

It is my singular honour and pleasure to address this 17th National Peoples Conference which is running under the theme Zimbabwe is Open for Business: In Unity and Peace Towards Vision 2030. This conference is momentous and historic as it is the first being held following the advent of the Second Republic which was ushered in after our partys thunderous victory in the July 30th harmonised general elections.

On behalf of our party, I greet and welcome you all to this yearly gathering which bridges the periods between our partys five-yearly congresses. I also welcome, in a very special way, our esteemed invited guests from sister liberation movements and other political parties who are with us today.

We commend and value the solidarity and fraternal relations which continue to exist between our respective parties. Allow me to specifically express our gratitude to the Communist Party of China (CPC), who continue to support us in our political and socio-economic development.

Distinguished Delegates, Comrades and Friends;

This conference comes on the backdrop of a very eventful year which witnessed the holding of our watershed general harmonised elections on July 30th 2018. It was indeed a crucial election held under a more open, transparent, peaceful and democratic political environment. As a party, we called for unity, peace, love and harmony during the campaign period. I commend all the structures and wings of the party for heeding this call during and after the election period. I appeal to us to entrench this non-violent culture going forward.

Reader: A Thinking Person's Desert "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Thinking Person's Desert

Submitted to Operation Disclosure | By Brent Johnson


Recently, I had occasion to view a segment of NBCs The Tonight Show in which host Jay Leno walks around New York City asking ordinary people a series of simple and basic questions. I was stunned by the general lack of education of the respondents.

From people not knowing who was the first President of the United States or how many stars are on the American flag, to a black woman who had never seen a picture of former Secretary of State Colin Powell and who when asked if she knew the last name of this man whose first name is Colin, answered, Cleanser; it was astonishing to see and hear the level of ignorance to which the average American has sunk.

The United States has become a country with one of the most poorly educated populations in the developed world. Ordinary people do not know about the founding documents of our Republic - The Declaration of Independence and Constitution for the United States. They do not understand our laws, our rights, or the limitations imposed on our governments by state and federal constitutions.

The American heritage is one of rugged individualism, adventuresome spirits, creativity and innovation, and recognition of fundamental rights that come from God, not government. However, the general population of the United States has forgotten, or even worse, never learned what makes us truly unique and special among the people of the world.

Before the Republic of the united States of America (sic) was born, all nations on earth functioned as two-class societies; with the aristocracy or nobility comprising the upper classes, and the commoners making up the lower classes. Only the nobility could own property, participate in making laws, or operate businesses. Commoners were doomed to be servants of the upper class, with no chance of ever bettering their lives. Their stations in life were determined by birth, and not by their achievements or accomplishments.

Then along came a group of highly intelligent, learned men, who stated for all to hear, that our rights come not by grant of any king, but because we are children of the Creator of All Things. This was a truly radical concept for the times, and despite the many obstacles in their path, these men won all Americans the right to live free from govern...

Ottawa: Report Back on December 8 Antifascist Mobilization "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Ottawa: Report Back on December 8 Antifascist Mobilization appeared first on It's Going Down.

Report back and analysis on a recent antifascist mobilization in so-called Ottawa.

On Saturday, December 8, around two hundred right-wing sympathizers gathered on Parliament Hill in Ottawa to protest the Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration, which was in the process of being approved by acclamation at a United Nations conference in Morocco.

After over a month of planning, the demonstration itself barely filled the space in front of Parliament and was in no way a triumph by the far right. That being said, the rally was at least superficially successful in uniting a host of far-right groups of differing ideologies to announce their xenophobic opposition to the UN compact and propagate their Islamophobic and racist views. Antifascists from Qubec and Ontario, despite their clearly enunciated skepticism regarding the compact, organized to oppose the far rights attempt to claim public space.

Further investigation into the far-right groups present, before, after, and during the rally reveals major rifts and extensive disorganisation on their part that belies the superficial unity the alliance cobbled together for this demonstration. The rallys attendance also reveals that conservative student groups do not have a problem cooperating with far-right groups, and that populist right-wing groups are  willing to simultaneously work with militias and invite a Qubec MP to address the rally.

Reports from major news outlets  paid little attention to the views presented on either side of the rally, essentially framing it as a disagreement among citizens about the Compact. Beyond that, the coverage obfuscated the open police protection of racists and, at its worst, characterized antifascists as violent extremists, while allowing members of far-right groups to portray themselves as nothing more than concerned citizens.

As comrades in Ottawa Against Fascism explained in their call-out for a counter mobilization:

Various anti-immigration groups are converging to Ottawa to protest against the adoption of the United Nations Organizations so-called Global Compact for Safe, Orderly and Regular Migration. This proposed international agreement is set to be adopted by a majority of countr...

Reader: Sugar, and Our Health "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

OOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

Sugar, and our Health

Picture is of a page from the book African Holistic Health by Llaila Afrika

As you read, sugar is one of the worst substances humans can consume.

Here is one hint/tip of vital information for us all that most Western Medical Doctors do not tell us...

When one goes to their Western Medical Doctor and asks for a cancer test, a specimen will be taken and most likely sprinkled with sugar, left for 24 hours and then observed to see if anything grew. If there is a large amount of growth, it's due to cancer. You see, cancers grow with/in sugar. Every human has a certain amount of cancer cells, but, it's when one consumes a lot of sugar and acidic foods as well that those cancer cells multiply and get out of hand. So maybe this information will help you choose foods that will aid in avoiding cancers. I hope so.

EMFs cause cancer in both humans and animals, interfere with human reproduction and triggers a syndrome of electro hypersensitivity in some individuals, characterized by headache, fatigue and cognitive dysfunction.

The laundry list of medical issues in every single category is simply, unbelievable when looking at the 5G scenario.

New Allegations of Corruption in Trumpworld "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Yesterday Adam posted on how the Wall Street Journal reported on Trumps Inaugeration Committee being under investigation

Today there is an additional report alleging that some very murky transactions took place, though as yet unproven

See this report as well from Propublica.

The report makes some significant allegations, e.g.:-

When it came out this year that President Donald Trumps inaugural committee raised and spent unprecedented amounts, people wondered where all that money went.

It turns out one beneficiary was Trump himself.

The inauguration paid the Trump Organization for rooms, meals and event space at the companys Washington hotel, according to interviews as well as internal emails and receipts reviewed by WNYC and ProPublica.

During the planning, Ivanka Trump, the president-elects eldest daughter and a senior executive with the Trump Organization, was involved in negotiating the price the hotel charged the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for venue rentals. A top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to express my concern that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen when this is audited. See the article for full and copious detail

Slate carries some commentary here, including this:

The eleven-billionth Trump corruption story of the last 48 hours involves the Trump inaugural committee (which was a freestanding non-profit entity that raised money from corporations and rich folks) getting fleeced by the Trump Organizations D.C. hotel See link for more

A Lecture By A Fun Guy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Many people hear fungus and think of mushrooms. This is akin to hearing trees and thinking of apples. Fungus makes up 2% of earths total biomass or 10% of the non-plant biomass, and ranges from the deadly to the delicious. This lecture by [Justin Atkin] of [The Thought Emporium] is slightly shorter than a college class period but is like a whole semesters worth of tidbits, and the lab section is about growing something (potentially) edible rather than a mere demonstration. The video can also be found below the break.

Lets start with the lab where we learn to grow fungus in a mason jar on purpose for a change. The ingredient list is simple.

  • 2 parts vermiculite
  • 1 part brown rice flour
  • 1 part water
  • Spore syringe

Combine, sterilize, cool, inoculate, and wait. We get distracted when cool things are happening so shopping around for these items was definitely hampered by listening to the lecture portion of the video.

We made a huge list of notes from the video, and they are the refined tidbits from years of research. Here is the top of our list, so this is the double-distilled list. Mushrooms are only the fruiting portion of a fungus. A fungus is the largest single organism on the planet at three-and-a-half kilometers across. Fungi are analogous to natures digestive system and were the first things to digest wood, which went untouched for fifty-million years. If there is something a fungus cannot eat, it will focus its nuclei there, and if it figures out a solution, the genetic information is passed to the rest of the organism. Certain strains hunt, for example Cordyceps turn insects into zombies, drive them like a Huffy to someplace tall before sprouting from the head of the creature to distribute spores. That somewhat grizzly example is also highly prized for its medicinal value.

If you are already growing mushrooms on a small scale, we can help you increase your yield.

Helpful Microbes Inhale Carbon Dioxide via Porous Cylindrical Electrodes and Exude Useful Chemicals "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

KAUST:

Microbes could become key allies in global efforts to curb carbon emissions and avoid dangerous climate change. A group of microbes called chemolithoautotrophs consume CO2 through their natural metabolism, spitting out small organic molecules as a byproduct. These microbes could be enlisted to convert industrial CO2 emissions into valuable chemicals, thanks to a new concept developed by Pascal Saikaly and his team at KAUST.

[...] To harness chemolithoautotroph capabilities for recycling CO2 emissions into useful chemicals, researchers supply electrons to the microbes in a process called microbial electrosynthesis (MES). Typically, MES reactors have grown chemolithoautotrophs on a submerged flat-sheet cathode and bubbled CO2 gas into the solution, but this setup has two key limitations, explains Manal Alqahtani, also a Ph.D student in the team. Flat-sheet cathodes are difficult to scale up and CO2 gas has poor solubility.

The team developed an alternative MES reactor using cathodes made from stackable, cylindrical porous nickel fibers that Saikaly's group had previously applied to recover water and energy from wastewater. CO2 is pumped through each cylinder, and electrons flow along it. "Using this architecture, we directly deliver CO2 gas to chemolithoautotrophs through the pores in the hollow fibers," Alqahtani says. "We provided electrons and CO2 simultaneously to chemolithoautotrophs on the cathode surface."

Will the microbes demand minimum wage for remediating our excess carbon dioxide?

Long running anti-prison radio show and podcast Kite Line returns with another episode.

Listen and Download HERE

This week, we speak more with Leon Benson, who calls us from inside the Pendleton Correctional Facility here in Indiana. Benson shared his story with us in the past several Kite Line episodes, and now he talks to us about the conditions inside the prison.

Benson demonstrates the importance of prisoners being ableto form bonds with people on the outside, and how it supports their mental health, their transition to the outside when released- and also protects them from violence and abuse by prison staff. He explains how guards are less likely to inflict violence on prisoners who regularly receive mail and communication from the outside.

He also talks to us about the high turnover rates for correctional officers, the rampant drug use that is affecting prisoners, and the benefits of education while on the inside. Leons decades inside give him the insights he shares with us regarding the changes he has seen in the conditions within prisons. He starts out with an example of a prisoner being abused by guards at Pendleton Correctional Facility.

Rescue Bear Skips Hibernating So He Can Play With This Log "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When a bear named Riku first arrived at a sanctuary last year, he had to adjust to an entirely different kind of life.

Riku had been kept chained up in a tiny shack next to a man's house in Albania. Most likely he had been kept captive since he was a small cub. By the time he was 2 years old, he was too big for his owner to handle. Day and night he was chained up, unable to feel sunlight or step on fresh grass. 

Credit: Four Paws International

People from Four Paws International arrived in May 2017 to save Riku and bring him to Dancing Bears Park Belitsa in Bulgaria, a sanctuary for bears saved from abuse. 

Credit: Four Paws International

For the first time since he was a tiny cub, Riku was able to roam freely, smell fresh air and meet other bears like him. 

It takes some time for bears who are saved from being kept in cages to adjust back to a more natural kind of life. 

One of the hardest things for rescued bears to do after being kept captive is hibernate. Not given the opportunity to build a den when in captivity means that newly rescued bears sometimes skip whole winters when they should be hibernating.

Virgin Galactics Historic Space Trip Heralds a Coming Age of New US Human Spaceflight Leaps "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Virgin Galactic just brought human spaceflight back to American soil after a seven-year hiatus, and other private companies are poised to make some giant leaps of their own.

Virgins VSS Unity suborbital spaceliner soared to a maximum altitude of 51.4 miles (82.7 kilometers) during a rocket-powered test flight over Californias Mojave Desert yesterday (Dec. 13).

The milestone marked the first U.S.-based crewed trip to the final frontier since NASA grounded its space shuttle fleet in July 2011. And it was the first spaceflight ever by a private vehicle designed to carry commercial passengers. (By one measure, anyway: Though many people place the boundary of outer space 62 miles, or 100 km, up at the Karman Line, the U.S. Air Force awards astronaut wings to personnel who reach an altitude of 50 miles, or 80 km.)

BREAKING: Federal Judge in Texas Rules Obamacare Unconstitutional "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

OBAMACARE IS DEAD!

U.S. District Judge Reed OConnor in Fort Worth, Texas declared that Obamacare is unconstitutional in a Friday ruling.

Last year, Congress invalidated the tax penalty for not purchasing insurance which opened up doors for the constitutionality of Obamacare to be challenged.

Bloomberg reported:

Obamacare was struck down by a Texas federal judge in a ruling that casts uncertainty on insurance coverage for millions of U.S. residents.

The decision Friday finding the Affordable Care Act unconstitutional comes just before the end of a six-week open enrollment period for the program in 2019 and underscores a divide between Republicans who have long sought to invalidate the law and Democrats who fought to keep it in place.

U.S. District Judge Reed OConnor in Fort Worth agreed with a coalition of Republican states led by Texas that he had to eviscerate the Affordable Care Act, the signature health-care overhaul by President Barack Obama, after Congress last year zeroed out a key provision the tax penalty for not complying with the requirement to buy insurance. The decision is almost certain to be appealed all the way to the Supreme Court.

Texas and an alliance of 19 states argued to the judge that theyve been harmed by an increase in the number of people on state-supported insurance rolls. They claimed that when Congress repealed the tax penalty last year, it eliminated the U.S. Supreme Courts rationale for finding the ACA constitutional in 2012.

The Texas judge agreed.

The remainder of the ACA is non-severable from the individual mandate, meaning that the Act must be invalidated in whole, OConnor wrote.

This is a huge blow to Obamacare and as it dies a slow death.

The decision, issued by U.S. District Judge Reed O'Connor in the Northern District of Texas -- a George W. Bush appointee, is likely to face an appeal. The suit in the case, Texas v. Azar, was brought by 20 Republican state officials, who have asked that all of Obamacare be thrown out as a consequence of the new tax law, which zeroed out a penalty on the uninsured, known as the "individual mandate." The officials argued that the penalty was central to making the rest of the law work, and that without it, the rest should crumble.

British Royal Family Implicated Again In A New Court Case About Pedophilia & Sex Slavery "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Never before has pedophilia and ritualistic child abuse been on the radar of so many people. Having been at Collective Evolution for nearly ten years, its truly amazing to see just how much the world has woken up to the fact that ritualistic child abuse is actually a real possibility.

The people who have been implicated in this type of activity over the years are powerful, from high ranking military people, all the way down to the several politicians around the world, and more.

One example would be the NBC news report that implicated Hillary Clinton in covering up a massive pedophile ring in the heart of the State Department, possibly why we see crimes against children in this document from the FBI. This activity could even have permeated the three letter agencies, so to have them look into it is also worrisome.

Autonomy, Resilience, Freedom: #J20 Call to Action "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The post Autonomy, Resilience, Freedom: #J20 Call to Action appeared first on It's Going Down.

Last year, Its Going Down along with CrimethInc. and many others called for a week of action in solidarity with #J20 defendants and moreover, for the revolutionary autonomous movement to discuss the path ahead. The response to the call was phenomenal, with people organizing everything from conferences, to block parties, to film showings, and benefit events.

This year we are pushing for a week of events around the idea of expanding, supporting, and deepening mutual aid, resilience, and autonomous infrastructure projects. Echoing our comrades at Mutual Aid Disaster Relief who are also endorsing this call, this is not a call for charity but mutual aid. And, beyond simply pushing for the sharing of resources, to imagine new survival and infrastructure projects as a direct intervention against the crisis of capitalist civilization. This is also not a call to stop fighting and instead build; our ability to resist is made possible by our degree of autonomy and infrastructure, and vice versa. We ask what would it mean to attack the legitimacy of the State and capital by meeting our own needs, directly, and on our own terms.

Across our territories and the wide variety of organizations, spaces, crews, affinities, networks, and unions that comprise our movement many of us are already doing this work: from autonomous disaster relief, to community food distros, warm winter survival programs, health-care and reproductive resilience, self-defense and firearms training classes, and also mobilizing supplies to send to the border and anti-pipeline and land defense struggles. #J20 is a call to expand, support, and defend these spaces, projects, and infrastructures. In doing so, we hope to become not only stronger, but also deepen our connection with those around us who are attempting to find a life within the daily struggle of survival under industrial racialized capitalism.

An Indigenous camp was ordered Friday to remove a gate thats blocking a bridge in northwestern B.C. and holding up a multi-billion-dollar gas pipeline project.

Judge Marguerite Church of the B.C. Supreme Court sided with Coastal GasLink, a subsidiary of TransCanada Corp., which filed an injunction to get construction going on the $40-billion LNG Canada build.

MN Rep. Ilhan Omar Mocks Mike Pences Christian Faith But She Gets to Keep Her Twitter Account "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The liberal media cheered Ilhan Omars DFL primary victory in 2016 in Minneapolis.

Ilhan Omar won a historic victory over 44-year incumbent DFL Rep. Phyllis Kahn.

Ilhan Omar built a vast coalition of East African voters to defeat the incumbent in Minneapolis.

The liberal media forgot to mention Ilhan was married to her brother.

In 2017, several months after Omars marriage history briefly created a national news item, Omar quietly petitioned family court for a default divorce, claiming she could not locate Elmi.

Democrat Ilhan Omar ran against the BDS anti-Israel -movement.
But now that she won her election she is open about her support for BDS.

On Friday Ilhan Omar mocked Mike Pences Christian faith.
This is allowed on Twitter.

Twitter banned Laura Loomer for pointing out Ilhans support for female genital mutilation.

Police Dog Can't Quite Figure Out His New Winter Booties "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Jary has a very demanding job in law enforcement for a dog.
 
The 5-year-old Belgian Malinois joined the Rapid City (South Dakota) Police Department in 2016, and has gone everywhere with his dad and handler, Senior Officer Hower, ever since.
 
The K9 always finds a way to lighten the mood at the station and brighten his fellow officers' day.
 
His personality is that of a puppy. He loves to play and meet new people, Hower told The Dodo. He loves going to work and hanging out with the other officers at the station.

Credit: Facebook/Rapid City Police Department

Jarys natural talent for entertainment came into play last week, when his dad bought the pup some protective footwear to battle the winter chill. Jary has to be prepared for anything, so a little snow and ice cant get in his way when it comes to fighting crime.
 
But when Hower put the new booties on Jary, he didnt expect the dogs hilarious reaction. Luckily, a fellow K9 handler had his phone handy.

Shoes can throw off a dogs balance and friction, and its clear Jary is struggling with both. This was his first time wearing these particular brand of boots, Hower said. We had a good laugh while watching his response to the boots, but encouraged him at the same time.

Hower was just going to share the clip with his family and friends, but since it was posted to the police departments official Facebook page, Jary has become a star. To the surprise of his handler, Jarys video has been viewed nearly 6 million times in under a week.

Between 340,000 and 690,000 Americans died from radioactive fallout from 1951 to 1973. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the 1950s, the U.S. government downplayed the danger of radioactive fallout, asserting that all radioactivity was confined to the Nevada test site. Despite this, a national estimate attributed 49,000 cancer deaths to nuclear testing in the area.

But the results of new research suggest that this number is woefully inaccurate. Using a novel method, and todays improved understanding of radioactive fallout, Keith Meyers from the University of Arizona discovered that U.S. nuclear testing was responsible for the deaths of at least as many and likely more as those killed by the nuclear bombs in Hiroshima and Nagasaki.

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

Beautiful emission nebula NGC 6164 was created by a rare, hot, luminous O-type star, some 40 times as massive as the Sun. Seen at the center of the cosmic cloud, the star is a mere 3 to 4 million years old. In another three to four million years the massive star will end its life in a supernova explosion. 
Click image for larger size.
Spanning around 4 light-years, the nebula itself has a bipolar symmetry. That makes it similar in appearance to more familiar planetary nebulae - the gaseous shrouds surrounding dying sun-like stars. Also like many planetary nebulae, NGC 6164 has been found to have an extensive, faint halo, revealed in this deep telescopic image of the region. Expanding into the surrounding interstellar medium, the material in the halo is likely from an earlier active phase of the O star. The gorgeous skyscape is a composite of narrow-band image data highlighting the glowing gas, and broad-band data of the surrounding starfield. NGC 6164 is 4,200 light-years away in the southern constellation of Norma.

 "Getting There"

"You take a final step and, look, suddenly
You're there. You've arrived
At the one place all your drudgery was aimed for:
This common ground
Where you stretch out, pressing your cheek to sandstone.

What did you want to be? 
You'll remember soon.
 You feel like tinder under a burning glass,
A luminous point of change.
 The sky is pulsing against the cracked horizon,
Holding it firm till the arrival of stars
In time with your heartbeats.
Like wind etching rock, you've made a lasting impression
On the self you were,
By having come all this way through all this welter
Under your own power,
Though your traces on a map would make an unpromising
Meandering lifeline.

What have you learned so far? You'll find out later,
Telling it haltingly like a dream,
 That lost traveler's dream under the last hill
Where through the night you'll take your time out of mind
To unburden yourself
Of elements along elementary paths
By the break of morning.

You've earned this worn-down, hard, incredible sight
Called Here and Now.
Now, what you make of it means everything,
Means starting over:
The life in your hands is neither here nor there
But getting there,
So you're standing again and breathing, beginning another
Journey without regret
Forever, being your own unpeaceable ki...

Its Time to Face Up to Our Nuclear Reality

The made-for-TV movie The Day After had an enormous impact on Americas national conversation about nuclear weapons in 1983. Resuming that conversation today is essential, and the movie holds some lessons about what that would take. The Nation, By Dawn Stover  14 Dec 18 This article originally appeared as part of a special section on The Day After at the Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists .The television movie The Day After depicted a full-scale nuclear war and its impacts on people living in and around Kansas City. It became something of a community project in picturesque Lawrence, 40 miles west of Kansas City, where much of the movie was filmed. Thousands of local residentsincluding students and faculty from the University of Kansaswere recruited as extras for the movie; about 65 of the 80 speaking parts were cast locally. The use of locals was intentional, because the moviemakers wanted to show the grim consequences of a nuclear war for real Middle Americans, living in the real middle of the country. By the time the movie ends, almost all of the main characters are dead or dying.

"How the Country Goes Broke"
By Bill Bonner

DELRAY BEACH, FLORIDA "Were down in Florida to meet a new grandchild. Its a different world down here different from Ireland, Maryland, France, Argentina our usual haunts.

Florida is flat. And barely above sea level. If the North Pole keeps warming, much of South Florida will be underwater soon. The people here are different, too. They are either young, tanned, and taut muscled and contoured. Or they are old, broken-down retirees. There dont seem to be many in the middle ordinary people, that is.

And they all seem to have a shorter outlook, as if they were aware that they will soon be swept away by the waves. People here are more eager to go out to show off and to spend money. Cars, for example, are newer and cleaner than those you see on the streets of Baltimore. And they are bigger and flashier than those you see on the country roads of Ireland. Houses, too, at least along the coast here, are bigger and fancier. 

There are also many more shops and restaurants here. Drive down almost any road and youll find strip malls, outlets, chain stores, and franchises everywhere with dozens hundreds thousands of places to spend money. With so much retail capacity to support, it is amazing that people have any money left. And what will happen when the hurricane c...

Taylor Swift Concert Used Facial Recognition Tech to Identify Stalkers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Taylor Swift concert used facial recognition tech to identify stalkers

You're probably used to the presence of facial recognition cameras at airports and other transport hubs, but what about at concerts? That's the step Taylor Swift's team took at her May 18th show at the Rose Bowl, in a bid to identify her stalkers. According to Rolling Stone, the camera was hidden inside a display kiosk at the event, and sent images of anyone who stopped to look at the display to a "command post" in Nashville, where they were cross-referenced with other photos of the star's known stalkers.

As the target of numerous death and rape threats, Swift arguably has a valid motivation for leveraging such technology. However, it's unclear who has ownership of the photos of her concertgoers, or how long they will remain on file. Her representatives have also not yet responded to queries as to whether fans knew about the cameras.

In early May Senator Grassley demanded the FBI and DOJ produce the transcript of Flynns intercepted calls with Russian Ambassador Kislyak and the 302s by May 25th.

The DOJ and FBI ignored him.

Grassley then concluded his letter by reiterating his request to schedule an interview with the second special agent who was present at Flynns interrogation, Joe Pientka, after push back from the DOJ.

On Friday the Mueller Special Counsel redacted Joe Pientkas name in the 302 reports.

According to investigative journalist Sara Carter Pientka is willing to defend General Flynn in his testimony.

But Deep State does not want you to know this!  They even redacted his name today!

This is the Closest Picture We Have Ever Captured On the Surface of the Sun "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

NASA launched a solar probe back in August of this year and it has since been working to orbit close to the sun using Venus gravity. This solar probe is called the Parker Solar Probe and it recently did something quite amazing.

Well, to begin with, just last month this solar probe became the fastest-ever human-made object relative to the Sun. It surpassed 53,454 miles per hour (ca. 246,960 km/h)r and is still going strong. From here it was able to take an image that was and is the closest we have ever gotten of the Sun itself.

This recent approach was actually even traveling quite faster than the speed noted above at 213,200 miles per hour. It brought the probe about 15 million miles of the Sun itself which is quite astonishing. Images like the one we obtained in this instance are a big step towards so much more in the world of space.

Nicola Fox director of the Heliophysics Division at NASA actually said as follows in a statement on the topic as well as the mission itself:

Heliophysicists have been waiting more than 60 years for a mission like this to be possible.

The solar mysteries we want to solve are waiting in the corona.

This is the first NASA mission to be named for a living individual.

Gene Parkers revolutionary paper predicted the heating and expansion of the corona and solar winds. Now, with Parker Solar Probe we are able to truly understand what drives that constant flow out to the edge of the heliosphere.

Grand Gulf Nuclear Station Apparently Falling Apart: Another Scram Follows Five Unplanned Downpower Events In Less Than One Year "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Construction of Grand Gulf Nuclear Power Station begin over forty-four years ago in May of 1974, and it was commissioned in 1985 or over thirty-three years ago. Would you feel safe driving on the highway in a vehicle of this age? And, this is a nuclear power station. The ionizing radiation speeds up material degradation. Windscale, Chernobyl, and Fukushima have taught that the impacts of nuclear disasters are not limited to the immediate area. The impacts depend upon wind direction, which is variable.

On November 5th: The NRCs review of Grand Gulf Nuclear Station identified that the Unplanned Power Changes Per 7,000 Critical Hours performance indicator has crossed the Green-to-White threshold. The performance issues included in this performance indicator were associated with five unplanned downpower events that occurred from the fourth quarter of 2017 through the third quarter of 2018. These events included a degrading reactor recirculation pump seal, a loss of an electrical power transformer and subsequent reactor recirculation system vibrations, a steam leak in the condenser bay, an inadvertent downshift of reactor recirculation pumps from fast to slow speed, and an inadvertent isolation of a feedwater heater. https://www.nrc.gov/reactors/operating/oversight/letters/gg_2018q3.pdf

The event time, below, is listed as midnight on December 12th, and yet the manual scram was not undertaken until almost 2 pm? Is this a typo or they took this long to react? It wasnt reported until 5.29 pm, so its not the reporting time. MANUAL REACTOR SCRAM DUE TO FAILED OPEN TURBINE BYPASS VALVE
At 1351 CST, the reactor was manually shutdown due to A Turbine Bypass Valve opening. The Main Steam Line Isolation Valves were manually closed to facilitate reactor pressure control. Reactor level is being maintained through the use of Reactor Core Isolation Cooling System, Control Rod Drive System, and High Pressure Core Spray System. High Pressure Core Spray System was manually started to initially support reactor water level control. Reactor Pressure is being controlled through the use of the Safety Relief Valves and the Reactor Core Isolation Cooling System. The plant is stable in MODE 3. The cause of the A Turbine Bypass Valve opening is under investigation at this time. The NRC Resident Inspector has been notified. https://www.nrc.gov/reading-rm/doc-collections/event-status/event/2018/20181213en.html

Call your congress critters on SESTA/FOSTA "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Remember when Tumblr decided to ban adult content? Well one thing I learned from all of that, is that its traceable to a specific set of laws, passed earlier this year, and which will begin to be enforced in January. Im referring to SESTA & FOSTA.

I dont really need to explain it, since Vox has already done a good job, and theres a website dedicated to stopping SESTA & FOSTA. Here I give the short version.

SESTA & FOSTA are a pair of laws intended to fight sex trafficking. Under previous law, websites with user-created content could not be held liable for the civil wrongs of its users (however they are liable for federal crimes and intellectual property laws). SESTA & FOSTA add an exception, making websites liable for sex trafficking and sex workers who advertise services. Lumping together sex trafficking and sex work does not make sense.  And arguably this does not stop trafficking or sex work, but rather makes things less safe for sex workers and trafficking victims.

In any case, the proof is in the pudding that SESTA & FOSTA are too broad and vaguely written. Many tech companies, including very large ones that can certainly afford liability insurance, now think its too risky to host content that has even the vaguest resemblance to sex work. I mean, Tumblr banned illustrated porn. Facebooks new content guidelines are so vague that they could include solicitations for dating, or even private banter between couples.

The upshot is that this passed congress without any significant opposition. The Senate voted 97 to 2, and the House voted 388 to 25. Clearly most of congress didnt understand the implications of what they voted on. Call your representatives and let them know.

The 2008 financial crisis spread distrust in banks and sped up the acceptance of new kinds of money. Cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin now promise to provide transparent, democratic alternatives. Startups in the Philippines are disrupting old structures. More than 50 million Filipinos are unbanked. FinTech startups are now giving them access to money. With little access to formal banking services, millions in the Philippines cant save money, take out loans or perform other simple financial transactions. Now FinTech startups are raising levels of financial inclusion. Founders here believe the country is ripe for change, and that cryptocurrencies will provide the momentum. Blockchain ambassador Lina Seiche, the founder of Blockchats, is working for change through bitcoin and decentralized networks. SCI founder Miguel Cuneta is helping that change along by offering services like bill payment, e-commerce, cashless transactions, and of course, cryptocurrency wallets. Hes enabling people in the unbanked market like waste-pickers by helping them participate in the world of digital commerce.

And we know that coal is a major contributor of greenhouse gas emissions, so our campaign has been for a just transition towards a low carbon development.

Were demanding a greater investment in renewable energy technologies, particularly that we can have a decentralized electricity system where solar and wind would play a major role.

The technology, we need a lot of investment in that so that we can be able to eradicate energy poverty. Local people can have their own socially-owned and community-owned renewable energy projects and co-operatives so that they can have access to electricity.

For us to be able to do that, a just transition for us would mean phasing out coal electricity generation and having no nuclear at all as part of the energy mix, and having wind and solar being increased as part of our energy mix.

Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker Signs Sweeping Lame-Duck GOP Bills "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

MADISON, Wis. Wisconsin Gov. Scott Walker signed a sweeping package of Republican legislation Friday that restricts early voting and weakens the incoming Democratic governor and attorney general, brushing aside complaints that he is enabling a brazen power grab and ignoring the will of voters.

Signing the bills just 24 days before he leaves office, the Republican governor and one-time presidential candidate downplayed bipartisan criticism that they amount to a power grab that will stain his legacy.

Just two hours later, a group run by former Democratic U.S. Attorney General Eric Holder announced it planned legal action to block the limitation on early voting.

Walkers action Friday came as Michigans Rick Snyder, another Midwestern GOP governor soon to be replaced by a Democrat, signed legislation in a lame-duck session that significantly scales back minimum wage and paid sick leave laws that began as citizen initiatives. Michigans Republican legislators also are weighing legislation resembling Wisconsins that would strip or dilute the authority of incoming elected Democrats.

The push in both states mirrors tactics employed by North Carolina Republicans in 2016.

Speaking for 20 minutes and using charts to make his points, Walker detailed all of the governors powers, including a strong veto authority, that will not change while defending the measures he signed as improving transparency, stability and accountability.

Theres a lot of hype and hysteria, particularly in the national media, implying this is a power shift. Its not, Walker said before signing the measures during an event at a state office building in Green Bay, about 130 miles (209 kilometers) from his Capitol office that has frequently been a target for protesters.

Walker was urged by Democrats and Republicans, including Democratic Gov.-elect Tony Evers and former Republican Gov. Scott McCallum, to reject the legislation. Walker, who was defeated by Evers for a third term, had earlier said he was considering partial vetoes, but he ultimately did not strike anything.

Evers accused Walker of ignoring and overriding the will of the people by signing the bills into law. He held a five-minute news conference in Madison shortly after the signing to accuse Walker of ignoring the will of the voters.

People will remember he took a stand that was not reflective of this last election, Evers said. I will be reviewing our options and do everything we can to make sure the people of this state are not ignored or overlooked.

Evers didnt elaborate and left without taking questions.

Walker, speaking after he signed the bills, brushed aside what he called high-pitched hysteria from critics of the legislation. He said his legacy wil...

Treating Lyme Disease Successfully with Ozone Therapy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Another Lyme Disease Miracle

Facebook post by Dr. Robert J. Rowen

I have an interesting clinical case for you today. Another Lyme case.

Lyme is the disease Australian authorities do not believe exists, and will persecute doctors for treating it.

Meanwhile our CDC says its a horrific epidemic, warns against new ticks, and says at least 300,000 Americans are coming down with the disease every year.

This is scientific medicine! One country doesnt want to pay for it and denies its existence. The other does recognize its presence.

I lived this lunacy. In Alaska, the local medical societies VOTED that chelation for metals was fraudulent and mercury amalgam removal from teeth was fraud. Imagine if their efforts to purge me was successful and just 15 years later they were PROVEN wrong in the medical literature (which was already available at the time, if they were not so dogmatically wedded to Pharma).

In our country Lyme is a major problem. MAJOR. It is difficult to treat. It is difficult to diagnose. A negative lab test means nothing. Most treatments are antibiotics. These carry a very significant risk of temporarily or permanently messing you up. And, from the cases Ive seen, most will relapse.

Here is another case of a women essentially disabled from Lyme. The patient is a mother of minor children and registered nurse.

Her whole family is Lyme affected. Her mother spent over $120,000 at a Lyme literate clinic just the past year. The treatments broke her parents. And the treatments mom got are even insurance reimbursable as they were conventional antibiotic therapy.

I am told after seeing the change in her daughter in less than one week, the mother is ready to come to us for ozone therapy.

I also use targeted nutritional supplements which are different from patient to patient. I use kinesiology to help me in the choices.

No, we are not getting everyone with Lyme better, but this case is relatively typical for us, not atypical. Her illness was so severe that she lost 10 years of watching her kids grow, and could not keep her nursing job.

Lyme disease, a bane of conventional medicine, is now our favorite problem to treat as patients go from d...

What You Need To Let Go Of Right Now, According To Your Zodiac Sign "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

While you may not be able to see it, you are holding onto things that you need to let go of. In this world, we tend to hold onto things for far too long and that has a negative effect on our own well-being.

Aries

You need to let go of your expectations. Things are not going to work out exactly as you want them to and there is nothing wrong with that. While it might not be ideal, it will still benefit you in the long-run. Stop trying to control everything and just let things happen.

Taurus

You need to let go of your ego. While you might not realize how strong yours is, it is really holding you back. Right now no one wants to get close to you because they cannot see past your ego. You need to get off that high horse and come back down to reality.

Life is too short to spend it in the clouds. The people before you care about you and want to be there for you but if you continue on as you are you will just scare them off. They are not going to wait around forever.

Gemini

You need to let go of all the worry youve been carrying with you. You cannot change the things that are bothering you the most so you should not be giving them power. In giving them power you are only bringing yourself down. Build your inner strength up and release all the pent-up nervousness youve been holding within.

Cancer

You need to let go of your attitude. Everyone around you is getting sick of it. Its like youre stuck in a funk and not willing to make any changes. While your closest friends and family have dealt with it for a few weeks they are close to their wits end. Get yourself together and remind yourself to be humble.

Leo

You need to let go of that judgmental mindset youve had lately. You are not better than anyone else and there are people out there just as amazing as you. Sure, youre unique but if you keep your head stuck up your ass no one is going to want to be around you. Be a kinder person and see where things end up.

Virgo

You need to let go of your need for control. You are not always going to be able to get things done in the ways you want to. Sometimes life hits hard and there is nothing we can do to change it.

You are a very vulnerable person and you need to start using that to your advantage. Open the doors before you but dont take center stage just yet. T...

The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog and Other Stories From a Child Psychiatrists Notebook: What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing

A book by Bruce D. Perry, M.D., Ph.D., and Maia Szalavitz

Mom is lying. Mom is hurting me. Please call the police.

Few things are more heartbreaking than when the trust of a child has been broken. Its a betrayal of the unspoken compact between a defenseless creature and its caretaker: Im trusting you with my life. As someone with two small young ones of my own, reading through the truly horrific stories of neglect, abuse and violence inflicted on children and infants in The Boy Who Was Raised as a Dog and Other Stories From a Child Psychiatrists Notebook: What Traumatized Children Can Teach Us About Loss, Love, and Healing, by Dr. Bruce D. Perry and Maia Szalavitz, was an absolutely brutal endeavor. Passages sickened me enough that at times, I had to put the book down. The vivid depictions of trauma and their damaging effects made this a truly difficult read. The scenarios that Perry and Szalavitz impart are filled not just with parental mistakes made out of ignorance or circumstances beyond control, but deliberate acts against the helpless committed by the very people who should be protecting them.

Perry and Szalavitzs book, first released in 2006 and since revised and updated, has become a textbook for therapists and psychologists, but also for anyone who works with or comes in contact with populations who may have suffered trauma. (I also highly recommend it for parents and caregivers who can make it through the tougher parts, because it informs ones understanding of children beyond the usual how-to-parent fare.) Trauma-aware or trauma-informed care is a now part of the common vernacular across education, mental health, juvenile justice and child welfare, thanks in large p...

The Power of Color Psychology: How The Colors You Wear Can Alter Your Mood "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The study of color psychology has long been used by businesses and marketing agencies to drive advertising decisions, using the impact of various colors to encourage you to spend your hard-earned dollars. However, have you ever stopped to consider the way the clothes you wear could impact your overall mood?

Colors have been used in various capacities throughout our society. Take, for example, the fact that most fast-food restaurants include red in their logo. This is due to the fact that the color red has been found to trigger hunger, therefore just looking at their logo will make you hungry. Good marketing move? This same approach is often used to make doctors office waiting rooms more peaceful, while schools are considering the color use in their classrooms in an effort to improve productivity and focus.

However, what we often fail to consider is that the use of color psychology doesnt require the use of a professional. In fact, by taking the time to understand the way that the science works, you can actually put it to work in your daily life. Consider, for a moment, the decisions you make as you wake up every morning. Are you going to wear the red shirt or the blue shirt? Rather than deciding based solely on what you believe compliments your eyes, why not considering which color might bring you feelings of peace and comfort?

Discover how the colors you wear can alter your mood:

Red

One of the colors most closely associated with love, romance, and sensuality, experts say that wearing the color red can make you more attractive to those around you. For this reason, it is a favored color to wear when going on dates, or even in work-related interviews. The extra attention is sure to boost your confidence, giving you the power to take charge of your own life. If youre looking to take control, dont underestimate this power color.

Orange

Associated with creativity and excitement, those who wear the color orange are looking to tap into the emotions and express themselves in a unique and meaningful way. This isnt an overly common color when youre looking at clothing, attracting those who are interested in thinking outside the box. If you are looking to make a statement, embracing your one-of-a-kind personality, orange is your color.

Their Numbers Growing, Latinos Gain Clout in the New Congress "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WASHINGTON A record 43 Latinos elected to Congress are set to take the oath of office in January, including the youngest woman ever elected, two Latinas from Texas, the first Latino to represent Ohio and a woman born in Ecuador.

A few are ascending to leadership roles, demonstrating the growing clout of the 57 million Latinos who live in the United States. New Mexico Rep. Ben Ray Lujan will move into the fourth-highest position in Democratic leadership, becoming the highest-ranking Latino in the history of the House. In the Senate, Nevada Sen. Catherine Cortez Masto will become the first Latina ever in charge of the Democratic Partys campaign arm for Senate races.

Francisco Pedraza, a political scientist at University of California, Riverside, attributed the largest Latino representation ever to a larger turnout propelled by rhetoric from President Donald Trump about immigrants, but he said much more needs to be done to bring out the Latino vote. Latinos are the nations largest minority and constitute 18 percent of the total population, yet their political impact is diluted due to their low electoral turnout.

Just being annoyed is not enough, Pedraza said.

One of the power centers for Latinos in Congress is the Congressional Hispanic Caucus, where Democratic Rep. Joaquin Castro of Texas is set to serve as chairman. Castro said the caucus will pursue a long list of priorities next year, including comprehensive immigration reform, reconstruction in parts of Puerto Rico affected by Hurricane Maria, raising minimum wages, lowering the cost of health care and dealing with climate change.

Ten of the Latinos coming to Congress are incoming freshmen. As such, they will be relegated to the lower rungs of committees, yet faced with the challenge of keeping their promises to voters back home. The task will be made even tougher by divided government, with Democrats set to control the House but Republicans holding power in the Senate and White House.

Among the newcomers is California Democratic Rep. Gil Cisneros, a former naval officer and 2010 Mega Millions lottery winner whose great-grandmother was born in Los Angeles when it was still part of Mexico. He expressed optimism that Congress can come up with the first immigration reform in 30 years to define the status of 11 million immigrants, mostly from Latin America, who are living in the country illegally.

Rep. Mike Levin, another newly elected California Democrat, also thinks there are some on the Republican side of the aisle who want to see common-sense immigration reform.

Lessons Learned From A 1-Day RTL-SDR Enclosure Project "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

[ByTechLab] needed an enclosure for his R820T2 based RTL-SDR, which sports an SMA connector. Resolving to design and 3D print one in less than a day, he learned a few things about practical design for 3D printing and shared them online along with his CAD files.

The RTL-SDR is a family of economical software defined radio receivers, and [ByTechLab]s enclosure (CAD files available on GrabCAD and STL on Thingiverse) is specific to his model. However, the lessons he learned are applicable to enclosure design in general, and a few of them specifically apply to 3D printing.

He started by making a basic model of the PCB and being sure to include all large components. With that, he could model the right voids inside the enclosure to ensure a minimum of wasted space. The PCB lacks any sort of mounting holes, so the model was also useful to choose where to place some tabs to h...

Classic Silent Film: Nurse Marjorie (1920) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Wikipedia

Nurse Marjorie is a 1920 American silent film drama produced and distributed by Realart Pictures, directed by William Desmond Taylor, and starring Mary Miles Minter. It is based on a 1906 play, Nurse Marjorie, by Israel Zangwill. The scenario is by Julia Crawford Ivers whose son James Van Trees was the cinematographer. On the Broadway stage Minters part was played by Eleanor Robson. This is one of Minters later films that survive at the Library of Congress.

As described in a film magazine, Lady Marjorie Killonan (Minter), who has devoted her time to nursing the poor, startles her parents by announcing that she is to enter a hospital that caters to the well-to-do. At the hospital she insists that her identity be shielded. Her first two patients are John Danbury, M.P. (Fillmore), and Dick Allen (Lee), a little boy with a broken leg. John has had surgery on his eyes and believes his nurse to be middle aged and very homely. There is nothing wrong with Dicks eyes, however, and he falls in love with Marjorie immediately. When John recovers his sight he falls in love with his nurse and becomes very jealous of her other patient, whom he pictures as a man of his own age. Marjorie has fallen in love with John, but torments him for some time. Marjorie poses as the daughter of poor fisherfolk, and Johns parents attempt to buy her off. John insists on marrying her, but when he learns of her deception, he leaves in a rage. Later he is wounded and Marjorie becomes his nurse again. This time her parents interpose objections, but these are overcome and the two are united.

US debt set to hit $22 TRILLION mark as indicators point to 'another financial crisis' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The rapidly exploding U.S. national debt is about to cross another critical threshold. According to the U.S. Treasury, the debt of the federal government is currently sitting at $21,854,296,172,540.94, and at our current pace we will likely hit the $22 trillion mark next month. This is a horrifying national crisis, and yet nothing is being done about it. When Barack Obama entered the White House in January 2008, the U.S. was $10.6 trillion in debt, and so that means that we have added 11.2 trillion dollars of new debt to that total in less than 11 years. Needless to say, it doesn't take a math genius to figure out that we have been adding an average of more than a trillion dollars a year to the national debt for more than a decade. But instead of getting our insatiable appetite for debt under control, Congress is actually accelerating our spending. At this point, there is no possible scenario in which this story ends well.

Hobby-grade drones above can monitor marine animals beneath the surface "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Using drones for wildlife surveys isnt new to marine wildlife research, but its been focused mainly on detecting the large mammals and sea turtles that break the oceans surface to breathe. Researchers in The Bahamas wanted to test whether they could also locate the many sharks, rays, and other species that spend time just below the oceans surface using small, commercially available drones. They published their findings and testing methods last month. We found that drones can be used to count and make species-level identifications of marine species, particularly in shallow marine environments, lead author Enie Hensel, a Ph.D. candidate at North Carolina State University, said in a statement. Sharks, rays, and sea turtles are both disproportionately threatened by human activity and difficult to monitor. The aerial viewpoint offered by drone-borne cameras allows the pilot to detect these large animals beneath the surface. So the researchers set out to test if they could reliably identify animals in video footage taken from drones at different locations. Study lead author Enie Hensel flies a small commercial drone over the shallow waters of The Bahamas to test its utility in surveying and monitoring large marine animals. The researchers conducted aerial surveys and analyzed drone video footage to record the numbers and species of animals spotted. Image by Duncan Brake. They used small commercial-grade quadcopter drones that are relatively affordable, easy to use, and able to carry fairly high-definition video cameras to mimic the equipment that might be available to a wide range of

Amazon Besieged: Q&A with Mongabay contributor Sue Branford about new book "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From 2016 to 2017, Mongabay contributors Sue Branford and Maurcio Torres traveled to the Tapajs River Basin, in the heart of the Brazilian Amazon, to report on the controversial plan to turn the region into a major commodities export corridor. Along the way, they visited many of the indigenous villages and other local communities whose very survival is threatened by the more than 40 large hydroelectric dams that are to be built in the region in addition to a railway and numerous roads, canals, and port complexes, all so that soy and other agricultural products can be exported to global markets and fuel Brazils economic growth. Branford and Torres wrote a 15-part investigative series (published in partnership with The Intercept Brazil) based on what theyd found during their travels for Mongabay in the Tapajs Basin, one of the most biodiverse and culturally rich places on Earth. Now, the reporters have turned those pieces into a book, Amazon Besieged, which was published by Practical Action Publishing this month. Cover of Amazon Besieged. Courtesy of Practical Action Publishing. Amazon Besieged tells the story of two writers long investigative trip along the basin in 2016 and 2017, according to Practical Action Publishing.

Madagascar auctioning a large swath of virgin waters for oil exploration "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

At an oil industry event in Houston in September, representatives of Madagascars government went into auctioneer mode. Their message: Let the bidding commence! They had traveled to Texas to announce that Madagascar was opening up a large area of marine territory to oil exploration. None of the 44 concessions on offer, which cover 63,296 square kilometers (24,440 square miles) in the Mozambique Channel off the countrys west coast, has ever been tendered or explored before. Members of the hydrocarbon industry expressed excitement about the news, but civil society groups oppose the sale, arguing that the potential projects environmental and social impacts have not been evaluated. The coastal waters have a high level of biodiversity, a fragile coral reef network, and a number of marine areas that local fishers manage themselves, all of which could be threatened by oil exploration or drilling. [T]he offshore exploration and production of oil and gas on this scale goes directly against the objectives of protecting fisheries resources and preserving the marine ecosystems on which the livelihoods and food security of a large part of the Malagasy population depend, wrote four civil society groups, led by the Antananarivo-based Research and Support Center for Development AlternativesIndian Ocean (CRAAD-OI), in a statement late last month. International groups have also voiced opposition to the sell-off. The opening of this bidding round is clearly worrying for Madagascars unique marine ecosystems and biodiversity, Franois Chartier, an oceans campaigner for Greenpeace France, told Mongabay by email. Oil drilling could threaten vulnerable species, coral reefs

The FBI Secretly Collected Data on Aaron Swartz Earlier Than We Thoughtin a Case Involving Al Qaeda "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Gizmodo:

Nearly two years before the U.S. government's first known inquiry into the activities of Reddit co-founder and famed digital activist Aaron Swartz, the FBI swept up his email data in a counterterrorism investigation that also ensnared students at an American university, according to a once-secret document first published by Gizmodo.

The email data belonging to Swartz, who was likely not the target of the counterterrorism investigation, was cataloged by the FBI and accessed more than a year later as it weighed potential charges against him for something wholly unrelated. The legal practice of storing data on Americans who are not suspected of crimes, so that it may be used against them later on, has long been denounced by civil liberties experts, who've called on courts and lawmakers to curtail the FBI's "radically" expansive search procedures.

The government does store information indefinitely that can be used against you later at a more convenient time.

President Trump Names Mick Mulvaney as New White House Chief of Staff "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Donald Trump named Mick Mulvaney, the current Director of the Office of Management and Budget, as his acting White House Chief of Staff.

Mick Mulvaney led the Office of Management and Budget (OMB) and was acting Director of the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau (CFPB) from November 2017 to December 2018.

Mulvaney is also famous for shutting down unruly reporters at the White House press briefings.

During a January 2018 presser on the Schumer Shutdown CNNs Jim Acosta tried to get smart with White House Director of the Office of Management and Budget Mick Mulvaney.

Trump Picks Mick Mulvaney as Next Chief of Staff "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WASHINGTON President Donald Trump on Friday picked budget director Mick Mulvaney to be his acting chief of staff, ending a chaotic search in which several top contenders took themselves out of contention for the job.

Mick has done an outstanding job while in the Administration, Trump tweeted. I look forward to working with him in this new capacity as we continue to MAKE AMERICA GREAT AGAIN!

Trump added that his current chief of staff, John Kelly, will be staying until the end of the year. He is a GREAT PATRIOT and I want to personally thank him for his service!

One senior White House official said there was no time limit on the appointment and that Mulvaney would fill the role of chief of staff indefinitely, regardless of the acting title.

Key to his selection: Mulvaney and the president get along and Trump has appreciated how the budget director briefs him, according to the official. Additionally, Trump prized the former congressmans knowledge of Capitol Hill and political instincts as the White House prepares for both a Democratic-controlled House and the presidents upcoming re-election campaign.

Unlike with Kellys appointment, Mulvaney received the news before the president tweeted his announcement. Trump and Mulvaney met face to face Friday afternoon and spoke by phone in the evening, according to a second White House official. Both officials spoke on condition of anonymity because they were not authorized to discuss the personnel matter on the record.

Mulvaney, who will be Trumps third chief of staff, will now take on his third job in the administration. He is head of the Office of Management and Budget, and for a time had simultaneously led the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. Russell Vought, Mulvaneys deputy, is to take over at OMB.

The first senior official disputed reports that Mulvaney wasnt interested in the chief of staff job and said the president didnt need to change Mulvaneys mind, though the budget director had previously signaled disinterest. A person close to him had told reporters that Mulvaney had made clear in recent months that he would be more interested in taking over at the Treasury or Commerce Department.

It was unclear why Mulvaneys appointment was announced as temporary but that decision was made by the president, the first official said. The source added that Kelly was happy with the choice of Mulvaney and plans to stay on through the end of the year to assist with the transition.

A former Tea Party congressman, Mulvaney was among a faction on the hard right that pushed GOP leaders into a 2013 government shutdown confrontation by insisting on lacing a must-pass spending bill with provisions designed to cripple President Barack Obamas signature health care law.

Something Is Wrong Here: U.S. Stocks Plunge Again And Are Having Their Worst Quarter In 7 Years "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Dow Jones Industrial Average plummeted another 496 points on Friday as panicked investors continue to pull billions of dollars out of the stock market.  With less than two weeks to go until Christmas, the markets are not supposed to be experiencing this kind of turmoil, but it is happening and there is no end in sight.  During the fourth quarter of 2018, we have already seen the S&P 500 fall 11 percent.  Even if it doesnt go down any further, that will be the worst quarter in 7 years.  And of course the S&P 500 is not alone at this point all of the major indexes are officially in correction territory.  Things are certainly getting quite frightening on Wall Street, and many believe that the worst is yet to come.

Despite widespread assurances from the mainstream media that the wise thing to do is to keep your money in the market, investors are pulling money out of equities at a near record pace

Jittery investors yanked a record $39 billion from global equities in the latest week, according to a Bank of America Merrill Lynch report released Friday. That included $28 billion that exited US stocks, the second-highest on record. And a record $8.4 billion was pulled from investment grade bonds.

The race for the exits that we have been witnessing really is turning into a bit of a stampede, and once panic starts to spread it can be very difficult to stop it.

So why is all of this happening?

7 Signs You Arent An Empath, You Are An Emotional Wreck "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In recent times, the term empath has become quite popular, with many people wearing the title like a badge of honor. However, many of these people couldnt be farther from an empath.

And out of these people that are falsely calling themselves empaths, the vast majority are actually just emotional wrecks. If youre feeling as if youre being used and ran through the gutter day in and day out, all the while unable to get over the things going on in the lives of those closest to you, changes need to be made. You wont ever be comfortable if you put yourself in uncomfortable situations time and time again.

If the following signs apply to you, youre an emotional mess and you have a lot to work on. While you care for others,  you are forgetting to care for yourself. Allowing this to go on for too long can have damaging effects.

7 Signs Youre Not An Empath:

1. You are unable to remove yourself from certain situations.

If youre not able to remove yourself from the situations before you, then youre not an empath. Empaths know when and how they need to step away. They do this because they know how important it is to protect their own well-being. When they need a minute to breathe and think, they take one.

2. Youre easily irritated.

If youre easily irritated youre not an empath. Empaths are often the most patient individuals because of the things theyve grown up facing. They are not quick to anger and do not overreact. Most things do not catch them off guard.

3. You feel more annoyed than concerned when people ask you for favors.

If you feel annoyed when people ask you to do things instead of feeling concerned for them then youre not an empath. Empaths love doing things for other people. Sure, they get annoyed from time to time but overall they will do just about anything without much of a fight.

You have pulled yourself apart in this way and dont often take the way others feel into consideration. Youre quick to say no and empaths are often those who struggle to say no. In many ways, you are the opposite of an empath in this way whether you realize it or not.

4. You get upset over meaningless things.

If you were an empath you would not get upset over the things without meaning. Empaths are much more in tune with their emotions and so not as volatile as others. If you spend a lot of time blowing up and freaking out then youre probably just under more stress than you can handle.

5. You feel very detached.

If you feel de...

The Spiritual Significance of the Cold Full Moon On December 22, 2018 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There is going to be a full cold moon very soon and with that, a major energetic shift is taking place. The full cold moon this year is going to be in cancer and because of that tells us that we should all expect change.

This December moon is going to really bring forth a sense of honor that we have not felt in quite some time. Those touched by this moon will be feeling much more ready to nurture the relationships and connections that mean the most in their lives. During this time, most of us will be working towards finding abundance despite all of the confusion going on within.

This moon is referred to as the full cold moon because it is the full moon of December and so coincides with the winter solstice most of the time. It is associated with the time in which days grow colder and nights become much longer. Uranus will be influencing this particular cold moon and because of that, we will not be feeling as angry as we have been in the past few weeks while the energies of this moon are present.

Because full moons are usually times in which we are highlighting opposing forces within our lives we usually learn a lot from them. You are going to be much more focused during the time these energies are before you but how you use them is up to you. Your personal life will be moving forth to the spotlight and a lot of exciting things might be coming forth.

Astrology King wrote as follows in regards to this full cold moon:

This is a good full moon to find original ways of doing things because of your inquisitive and inventive nature. You might receive flashes of insight to solve lingering problems in an instant. Chance encounters can also provide valuable information. You are more likely to stumble upon some critical piece of information while surfing the net. Chance encounters may lead to instant attraction and new friendships.

Your mood may become changeable and somewhat odd. However, you should feel comfortable expressing a more unique side of your personality. The lowering of your inhibitions is what facilitates the change and excitement. Importantly, this also makes it easier to share your feelings with loved ones, especially after the anger and hostility or recent weeks. This is also a good full moon to break old habits and replace them with something new.

This full moon could make or break some things that are going on before you but if you do your best with what comes forth you should come out on top. Hopefully, as time passes everything will die down and you can move...

25+ Hilarious Illustrations That Prove Our World Is Only Changing In the Worst Way "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If there is one thing we are guaranteed in this life, its the element of change. From the invention of new, exciting technology to shifts in our lifestyle or overall way of life. Unfortunately, not all of these changes are positive

Take a look back at where your life was at just 10 years ago. What did your cell phone look like? What sites captivated your attention on the internet? Taking it a step further, where was the United States at in terms of a political climate and the way that we were seen around the globe? Its incredible just how much the world can change in a single decade.

A great example can be seen by looking at the popular movie Back to the Future: Part II. Released in 1989, the movie includes a well-known seen in which Marty McFly travels 30 years into the future, arriving on October 21st, 2015. While there were some accurate predictions, sure, its incredible to see just how far McFlys experience is from the true 2015, 3 years ago. Take a moment to rewatch the scene, and youll discover a world of flying cars and hoverboards. Sure, we werent there yet BUT technology like flat-screen televisions, video communication like Skype and card readers were all considered just as wild at the time, and today they are part of our daily lives.

Today we live in a world that is highly dependent on technology, with more people than ever logging onto social media and relying upon search engines like Google. Furthermore, cell phones are no longer seen as a luxury item, they are a necessity in our daily lives.

These incredible changes and more are portrayed in the following humorous yet shockingly real illustrations, revealing the many ways the world has changed (for the worse):

The strategy outlines Washington's desire to maintain dominance in defining, shaping and policing cyberspace, as well as to achieve "peace through strength," countering "malicious actors" like Russia and China. The main goal of Moscow, according to the proposed legislation, is to significantly decrease dependence of the Russian internet sector on foreign infrastructure.

Via David Pescovitz, I came across something called the morph cut, a video editing technique that can be used to eliminate pauses, stutters, and filler words and provide for smoother-sounding interviews, unlike with a jump cut where you can see the abrupt transition. But the catch is that if not done carefully, it can produce unexpected results, like in this clip where a child suddenly materializes behind the speaker.

The technique can also be used to deliberately distort, as with these famous clips of Richard Nixon.

Cow Takes Wrong Step And Falls Into Huge Sinkhole "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

One morning last week, the Lincoln County Fire Department got a call about a cow whod gotten stuck in a sinkhole, and was completely unable to pull herself out on her own. The hole was about 20 feet deep, and while the man who found her tried everything he could think of to help her out, he eventually decided to call for help

Credit: Dustin Whited

Around noon, the man contacted the fire department in hopes that they could help. The department sent some firefighters out to the scene, but they quickly realized that the rescue was going to be a tricky one, and wasnt something they would be able to do on their own. 

In order to make sure everything went as smoothly as possible, the Lincoln County Fire Department decided to call in the Jessamine County Fire Department and the Lexington County Fire Department as well, to provide extra crew members and equipment, so that the poor cow would have the absolute best chance of getting out of that sinkhole as quickly as possible.

Once on scene the fire department realized the rescue was beyond their scope, Captain Dustin Whited, who works with both the Lexington County Fire Department and the Lincoln County Fire Department, told The Dodo. Most of them know that I am on the technical rescue team in Lexington. I got a call about the cow and they inquired if we would respond to assist them. 

Once the entire rescue crew was assembled, they all assessed the situation together and formulated the best plan to get the cow out of the hole safe and sound. Throughout the entire process, the cow seemed scared and confused and yet remained calm, as if she knew that a whole team of people were working together to get her out.

"Whos in Charge of Wall Street?" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"Whos in Charge of Wall Street?"
by Brian Maher

"Anarchy is amok on Wall Street, a scene of riot. Neither the bulls nor the bears are in charge, cries Michael Kramer of Mott Capital Management. Thus we find bull and bear, bovine and ursine, pitted in savage brawling, each battling for control of the nations capital. One day the bulls wrest command and the Dow Jones leaps 500 points.  The next day bears pull off a countercoup and retake the 500 points the bulls won the day before. 

The rascals may claim an additional hundred or two before the bulls come back at them the following day.
Investors are glued to the desperate back-and-forth, like breathless spectators at a tennis match with everything on the line. Which side wins ultimately bull or bear? Today we assess opposing forces and hazard an ultimate victor.  

The bears put the bulls to rout again today. The Dow Jones plunged 497 panic-stricken points. The S&P sank 51, while the Nasdaq lost another 160. MarketWatch reports on todays combats: "U.S. stocks fell sharply... as investors focused on a batch of weaker-than-expected economic data out of China and Europe, sparking fresh worries about the state of the worlds second-biggest economy and prospects for global growth. Freshly released data ou...

Saturdays smiles "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A shepherd was relaxing after a long day, sitting on the grass, chewing on a straw, watching his sheep grazing quietly under the last rays of the setting sun.

A jeep roared up, leaving behind clouds of dust and stopped before him. A man clad in an expensive suit and shiny leather shoes with a camera on his hands got out.

The man started snapping pictures of the surrounding area and, once hed finished, looked at the shepherd and asked, Is this your land?

Aye responded the shepherd.

A look of glee formed in the mans eyes as he asked, And are those your sheep?

Aye says the shepherd.

Would you sell some of your land? the man asked.

The shepherd looked up, studying the man with a cautious look, before searching and asked And why would I do that?

So you can make some money, and buy more sheep, explained the man with a smirk.

And why would I buy more sheep? asked the shepherd.

So you can sell their wool, and make more money.

And why would I do that? asked the shepherd.

So you can buy even more sheep, and sell even more wool.

And why would I do that? asked the shepherd.

So, at some point, you can build a factory and fill it with looms.

And why would I do that? asked the shepherd.

So you can make your wool into clothes, instead of selling it, and make even more money.

The shepherd looked at his sheep for a second, spitting out the chewed straw, and asked, And why would I do that?

So you can buy more and more sheep, sell more and more clothes, and make more and more money, said the man, rubbing his hands.

And why would I do that? asked the shepherd.

So you can be rich!

And why would I want that? asked the shepherd.

So you can build yourself a mansion. Right here! said the man, tapping the ground with his foot.

And why would I do that? asked the shepherd.

So you can have a big bedroom. On the top floor! With big windows! And a big balcony!

And why would I do that? asked the shepherd.

So you can sit back, look over your sheep, enjoy the sunset Enjoy life! said the man, practically jumping up and down with excitement.

Aye And what do you think I was doing before you arrived?

"What Would Doug Engelbart Do?" Ask Organizers of a Silicon Valley Event "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Inspired by the man who showed the way to modern computing, tech-minded experts shared ideas for how to tackle climate change, nuclear proliferation, and broken political systems

Fifty years ago this month Doug Engelbart demonstrated what weve come to know as computingthe mouse, hypertext, and windows. His goal wasnt to revolutionize computing per se, it was to give people better tools for collaboration, which he hoped would lead to better ways to fix the real problems of society. (Moving a cursor around a display, while sometimes challenging before the mouse, was not a real societal problem.)

He thought the single greatest existential challenge of our time was to raise the curve on our ability to collectively solve problems, said Christina Engelbart, Doug Engelbarts daughter, who spoke at the Computer History Museum in Mountain View, Calif., this week, along with a group of tech execs, futurists, and other people interested in tackling todays big problems.

How are we doing in terms of meeting that challenge? According to Christina, her father, who died in 2013, would say, Great effort guys, but there is one problem. That problem involves technology evolving on a much faster path than the organizations that have to manage it. The explosion of digital technology unchecked is a threat multiplier, and that gap is a cause for concern, she said.

Christina remains hopeful that organizations can catch up, and finally realize her fathers vision of using technology to find answers to critical problems.

To get there, said futurist Paul Saffo, We need more Engelbarts, more people who are long distance thinkers, long distance doers, tackling the greatest challenges that lay ahead.

Saffo then brought three people on stage who hope to tackle big issuesclimate change, political dysfunction, and nuclear proliferationwith a long term perspective. Heres what those would-be Engelbarts are doing:

Democrat Rep. Adam Schiff Plans to Probe Trumps Personal Finances, Obtain Deutsche Bank Records "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Incoming House Intel Chairman, Rep. Adam Schiff (D-CA) cant wait to abuse his subpoena power and plans to investigate Trumps personal finances by obtaining the Presidents Deutsche Bank records.

Schiff believes President Trumps so-called financial interests in Russia are guiding his foreign policy and the answers he is looking for are in Trumps bank records.

This is the modern day Democrat party unleash the power of government on political adversaries to launch fishing expeditions in search of a crime.

We saw this before under Joseph Stalin.

Joseph Stalins henchman Lavrently Beria once famously said, Show me the man and Ill show you the crime.
This is todays Democrat party.
Give them the Republican and theyll show you the crime.

They are nothing more than Stalinist thugs.

Via The New Yorker:

As the ranking member of the Intelligence Committee, Schiff has directed a staff of eleven. As the chairman, he will direct twenty-five, some of whom will be devoted to the Russia investigation. Weve been deluged with rsums, Schiff said. It is now clear that during the campaign, when Trump was advocating the removal of sanctions on Russia, he was privately trying to make money in Moscow in a deal that may have required Putins help. Schiff wants to know: Is that why Trump is so pro-Russian? Is his financial interest guiding his foreign policy? Schiff thinks the answer to those questions may be found in the records of Deutsche Bank, which has been fined hundreds of millions of dollars for laundering money for Russia, and was reportedly the only bank willing to do business with Trump in the nineteen-nineties, when major Wall Street firms declined to loan him money after a series of failed business ventures. We are going to be looking at the issue of possible money laundering by the Trump Organization, and Deutsche Bank is one obvious place to start, Schiff added.

President Trump previously threatened House Democrats by stating he will push the Republican-led Senate to launch counter-investigations if Dems abuse their subpoena power.

Citing Bundesbank statistics Schepp said that "net direct investments of German companies in 2017 amounted to more than 1.6 billion, and in the first three quarters of this year exceeded 2 billion." German firms were interested in opening production in Russia due to the weak ruble exchange rate, according to Schepp.

Indirect function calls calls to a function whose address is stored in a pointer variable have never been blindingly fast, but the Spectre hardware vulnerabilities have made things far worse. The indirect branch predictor used to speed up indirect calls in the CPU can no longer be used, and performance has suffered accordingly. The "retpoline" mechanism was a brilliant hack that proved faster than the hardware-based solutions that were tried at the beginning. While retpolines took a lot of the pain out of Spectre mitigation, experience over the last year has made it clear that they still hurt. It is thus not surprising that developers have been looking for alternatives to retpolines; several of them have shown up on the kernel lists recently.

The EFF Gift Guide: Whats Creeping Us Out "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

EFF doesnt endorse products. But as Internet-connected products proliferate, ads for them bombard holiday shoppers with promises of a more streamlined life. And they do so without always divulging that theyre tracking you more than a jolly fat man who sees when youre sleeping and knows when youre awake.

So, we are taking a different approach to the holiday gift guide: highlighting products that raise red flags for us, as privacy-conscious digital advocates. Here are some gifts being pushed this year that, from a privacy or security standpoint, are on our naughty list.

Facebooks Portal

Youve probably seen the ads for Facebooks in-home camera, Portal, which its advertising as a way to keep in touch via video call with friends and loved ones wherever they are. If you cant be there, feel there, is the maudlin tagline for the camerawhich can follow you around the room during video-conferences.

Facebook has made some nods to privacy with this product, namely including a camera cover and a promise that its not using the companys facial recognition technology to identify you. And Portal itself doesnt serve you ads.

Still, Facebook has already had to change its tune about the extent to which it uses Portal data for advertising, first saying that no data would be used to serve Facebook users ads, and then being forced to clarify.

Data from Portal does, in fact, inform ads. This includes the fact that you logged into your account or how often you use a feature or app. What does that mean? Facebook offers the example that if you make a lot of video calls, you may see ads related to video calling.

Its also collecting everything that Messenger collects, including usage data such as length of calls, frequency of calls, along with aggregate usage of ads, which could also inform your advertising profile.

Facebook has a history of changing the terms of how it uses your data, which is worth keeping in mind as you consider giving it a place in your home. The companys practices have drawn its fair share of trust issues this year, to say the least, and have shown a certain disregard for notifying people of how its using their data.......

A B.C. judge has reserved her decision on whether to grant an injunction against members of a Wetsuweten clan so the $40-billion LNG Canada project can proceed.

Justice Marguerite Church put the matter over to Friday afternoon, said Warner Naziel of the Unistoten Camp south of Houston, B.C.

So now we're talking about the inaugural:

... President Donald Trumps inaugural committee ... paid the Trump Organization for rooms, meals and event space at the companys Washington hotel, according to interviews as well as internal emails and receipts reviewed by WNYC and ProPublica.

During the planning, Ivanka Trump, the president-elects eldest daughter and a senior executive with the Trump Organization, was involved in negotiating the price the hotel charged the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for venue rentals. A top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to express my concern that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen when this is audited.

If the Trump hotel charged more than the going rate for the venues, it could violate tax law....

The fact that the inaugural committee did business with the Trump Organization raises huge ethical questions about the potential for undue enrichment, said Marcus Owens, the former head of the division of the Internal Revenue Service that oversees nonprofits.
Also:
The criminal probe by the Manhattan U.S. attorneys office ... is examining whether some of the committees top donors gave money in exchange for access to the incoming Trump administration, policy concessions or to influence official administration positions....

Giving money in exchange for political favors could run afoul of federal corruption laws. Diverting funds from the organization, which was registered as a nonprofit, could also violate federal law.
And:
Federal prosecutors are examining whether foreigners illegally funneled donations to President Trumps inaugural committee and a pro-Trump super PAC in hopes of buying influence over American policy, according to people familiar with the inquiry.

The inquiry focuses on whether people from Middle Eastern nations including Qatar, Saudi Arabia and the United Arab Emirates used straw donors to disguise their donations to the two funds. Federal law prohibits foreign contributions to federal campaigns, political action committees and inaugural funds.

Signal says it can't allow government access to users' chats

Last week, the Australian government passed the country's controversial Access and Assistance Bill 2018 into law, legislation that allows government agencies to demand access to encrypted communications. Companies that don't comply with the new law could face fines of up to AU$10 million ($7.3 million). A number of companies that stand to be affected have spoken out about the legislation, and Signal has now joined in, explaining that it won't be able to fulfill such requests if asked.

"By design, Signal does not have a record of your contacts, social graph, conversation list, location, user avatar, user profile name, group memberships, group titles or group avatars," Signal's Joshua Lund wrote in a blog post. "The end-to-end encrypted contents of every message and voice/video call are protected by keys that are entirely inaccessible to us." Lund added that Signal is open source, meaning anyone can "verify or examine the code for each release." "People often use Signal to share secrets with their friends, but we can't hide secrets in our software," he wrote. "We can't include a backdoor in Signal."

What is still left out is the necessity of reducing the size of the Military Industrial Complex and termination of its imperial agenda. AOCs proposal also needs to be expanded, including an immediate halt to any new fossil fuel infrastructure, a focus on public ownership and democratic control of the energy systems, and paying for it by enacting a cut of 50% or more in the military budget.

Argentina creates two new marine parks to protect penguins, sea lions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Argentina has officially created two large marine protected areas: the Yaganes Marine National Park, lying off of the countrys southern tip, and the Namuncur-Burdwood Bank II Marine National Park in the South Atlantic. Together, the two parks cover a total area of about 98,000 square kilometers (37,000 square miles). By designating these two marine parks, Argentina has increased the total area of its protected ocean to about 8 percent. This puts the country closer to achieving its commitment of protecting 10 percent of its national waters by 2020 under the biodiversity targets of the United Nations Convention on Biological Diversity (CBD). Yaganes Marine National Park lies off the southern tip of Argentina, while Namuncur-Burdwood Bank II Marine National Park is located in the South Atlantic. Image courtesy of the Wildlife Conservation Society. Recent explorations of the areas now designated as marine parks have shown that the waters and surrounding land are home to a rich diversity of marine creatures including the South American sea lion (Otaria flavescens); king (Aptenodytes patagonicus), rockhopper (Eudyptes spp.) and Magellanic penguins (Spheniscus magellanicus); South American fur seal (Arctocephalus australis); several species of sharks and rays; and rare cold-water corals. Many marine species in these parks are not found anywhere else on Earth.

Palm oil giant Wilmar promises to take harder line with errant suppliers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The worlds biggest palm oil trader has updated its sustainability policy, as its self-imposed deadline to stop buying palm oil linked to a variety of environmental and social ills draws closer. Beginning in January 2019, Wilmar International will freeze purchases from suppliers found to be in violation of its sustainability policy, which bars plantation companies from clearing rainforests and peatlands, grabbing land from rural communities and mistreating workers. Previously, Wimar would continue to buy palm oil from these firms while it engaged with them. The Singapore-listed conglomerate also said it would require some suppliers that violate its policy to submit recovery plans. The Recovery Plans may include options to protect and restore forest, bare land and/or peat swamps and to assist local communities to secure social forestry rights, Wilmar said in a statement announcing the changes. It may be a while before any recovery plans are put into effect. The specifics have yet to be defined, a process Wilmar says will begin in January. The firm is giving suppliers until the end of 2019 to submit the plans. Those that fail to do so will enter the Grievance Procedure, an indefinite process that can take any amount of time, a spokesperson acknowledged. Engagement is essential to bring these suppliers up to compliance with our NDPE policy rather than drive them towards a growing leakage market of unsustainable palm oil, the spokesperson said in an email. However, we will suspend suppliers who refuse to comply or do not show any progress in moving

It started after Shell, among the top 10 fossil fuel companies in terms of greenhouse gas emissions, presented its future scenario on climate change, called SKY, during a side event at the climate talks on Dec. 11. Shells chief climate change adviser, David Hone, and its projects and technology director, Harry Brekelmans, said solutions ranging from carbon capture technology to hydrogen fuel and market-based mechanisms would be essential to limiting global warming to 1.5 degrees Celsius (2.7 degrees Fahrenheit), as targeted by the Paris Climate Agreement. Brekelmans responded to charges that Shell had willfully withheld since 1988 knowledge that its fossil fuels were contributing to climate change, saying that no one company was responsible for the current climate situation. So we are all responsible for this, he said. We cant be pointing fingers at each other to say that you are unilaterally causing [climate change]. Because we are all enjoying the energy in this room with electricity powered by fossil fuel.

This is It What Youve Been Looking For "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Youll Never Read a More Important Email From Me Than Todays

Dear Reader,

The most important thing Ive ever learned was at a Tony Robbins event last week in Palm Beach, Florida, and I wanted to share it with you now.

Its very personal, but I cant not share this because I believe its something that can help everyone.

It was at a Date with Destiny event hosted by Tony Robbins. I have listened to and read his work for years now, but this was my first time actually going to one of his live seminars.

First off, I just want to say anyone reading this should try one, especially if you are married. I say this as a person who is fully aware of many of the teachings Robbins speaks of. I read Think and Grow Rich by Napoleon Hill at age 15, as well as the Laws of Success. But Robbins is on another level; after 41 years of helping people optimize their brains, Im guessing I saw him at his peak performance.

***If you can, please take a moment to read the rest of this letter. Its simple, and on the surface I always knew this, as you probably do as well, but if youll just take a few minutes, or even an hour to reflect on this in your own life, I have no doubt it will help you.

Steve Jobs, the founder of Apple, once said at a speech at Stanford University, you can never connect the dots going forward, you can only connect the dots looking backwards.

Could sentient robots ever become a threat humanity. With the rising tide of Robot autonomy and self-awareness, are humans an endangered species? Stephen Hawkings believed that was the case and he spoke of it, often. There has been an incident in a factory in China involving a robot and a human that all of us need to be paying attention to.

Are we the last generation? Are carbon based life-forms going to disappear from the face fo the earth? Maybe, maybe not. But increasingly in the UK and the US, AI are making decisions on who lives and dies in medical facilities.

 

Nobody is listening to the dangers even when scientists present the data.

Jon Kyl

(free from Flckr)

Sen. Jon Kyl (R-Ariz) announced Friday he will resign from his post at the end of year.

Kyl was appointed to fill the seat of the late Sen. John McCain after his death in August. In his resignation letter to Arizona Gov. Doug Ducey, Kyl said hed committed to finishing out McCains term in the 115th Congress, but it was time for a new senator to join the 116th in January.

In 2013, Kyl retired after serving 18 years in the Senate and eight years in the House. Following his retirement, he became senior of counsel at Covington and Burlington, a major law and lobbying firm in Washington.

Before his congressional career, he was a lobbyist and lawyer for the Arizona firm Jennings, Strouss & Salmon up until his election to the House in 1986. In 1994, he was elected to represent Arizona in the Senate. He was selected to be the Republican Whip in 2008.

As a lobbyist for Covington and Burlington, Kyl mainly represented the industries of electronic manufacturing and equipment and pharmaceutical and health products. Clients from electronic manufacturing and equipment spent $5 million on his services, while his pharmaceutical clients spent $3.5 million.

Some of his clients included the American Council on Education, Georgetown University, Coalition for American Retirement and Qualcomm Inc.

Throughout his career as a representative and senator, Kyl received money from a number of industries...

Farm Bills corporate farm subsidies remain intact after extensive lobbying "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Passed overwhelmingly by Congress this week and expected to be signed by President Donald Trump, the new $867 billion Farm Bill has lobbyists fingerprints all over it, as is tradition.

More than 500 groups and companies hired lobbyists in 2017 and 2018 to advocate for them during Farm Bill negotiations as of the most recent lobbying disclosure deadline on Sept. 30, making it the fourth-most lobbied bill in the 115th Congress.

Sen. Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) was one of 13 Republican Senators to vote against the bill. The senior Senator was irate on the Senate floor Tuesday, criticizing the dark rooms of conference committee meetings that removed his Senate-approved amendment to lower the cap on subsidies to high-income farms. Another provision to remove a loophole that allows agri-businesses to designate family members as farm managers that can receive up to $125,000 in subsidies, even if they dont work on the farm, was also removed.

So far, the bill has not won much praise outside of Washington lobby groups, whose members will receive more taxpayer subsidies from a few select changes, Grassley said, arguing the bill will allow corporate farms to continue to manipulate the system and make life harder for new and small farmers.

Grassley noted the same thing happened in 2014 when a similar amendment of his passed the House and Senate but was removed in conference committees. Grassley is a member of the Agriculture Committee but was not selected to join the conference committee.

What lobbyists were able to accomplish in the so-called dark rooms will never be entirely clear, even when fourth-quarter lobbying disclosures are released. But critics from bot...

Tipster Gets $10,000 Reward for Reporting Software Piracy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Over the past two decades, the Software Alliance (BSA) has represented major software companies including Adobe, Apple, Microsoft and Oracle, in their fight against under-licensed businesses.

This has resulted in audits at thousands of companies worldwide, whose computers are carefully inspected to see if the business owner has failed to pay his or her dues.

Some of these audits have been controversial and the evidence collection process has raised eyebrows as well. Especially BSAs explicit attempts to convince people to report companies in exchange for hard cash.

In recent years, the industry group has actively solicited such tips from the public. Legitimate leads are then followed up with a thorough investigation or audit, something many companies are contractually obliged to agree to.

If unlicensed software is found during an audit, BSA tries to negotiate a settlement. This is what happened with an unnamed Australian manufacturing company, CRN reports.

Its not clear what type of software was used improperly. What we do know is that the tip came from an anonymous informant who presumably works or worked at the company in question.

We work in a competitive industry and while were all trying to get ahead, it didnt feel right using infringing copies of software to give the business an unfair competitive advantage, the informant reportedly told BSA.

The decision to report the business ultimately came down to my personal morals and ethics. I dont believe its right to use software without paying for it.

Its unclear whether the informant also raised the issue internally, but that doesnt matter anymore. The BSA followed up the lead which eventually led to a significant AU$160,000 settlement.

The whistleblower, tipster, or rat, depending on which side youre on, fared well too.

BSA says that the information it receives from informants is invaluable. It plays a critical role in identifying misbehaving companies and holding them accountable, so its worth a reward.

BSA is grateful to the informant for doing the right thing, and have provided the informant with a reward of AU$10,000 for his assistance in this mat...

People Can't Believe Who They Find Outside In Freezing Cold Tent "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When one border collie escaped the makeshift outdoor enclosure where she and 15 others were being kept, she started running, doing what she was trained to do.

These border collies had been bred to be working dogs who herd cattle. But when this dog tried to do that to a group of cows nearby, tragedy struck.

"Apparently she escaped from his makeshift enclosure and ran onto the neighbors cattle farm," Debbie Lazaro, president of East Coast Herding Dog Organization (ECHO) Rescue, told The Dodo. "The farmer shot her in order to protect his livestock ... [the cows] did sustain some unfortunate injuries."

Such a loss never would have happened if the 16 dogs had not been left in a backyard shed in Kansas after a backyard breeder decided to shut down his operation.

Ivankas Involvement in Trumps Inauguration May Be Her Undoing "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Find Trump, Inc. wherever you get your podcasts.

When it came out this year that President Donald Trumps inaugural committee raised and spent unprecedented amounts, people wondered where all that money went.

It turns out one beneficiary was Trump himself.

The inauguration paid the Trump Organization for rooms, meals and event space at the companys Washington hotel, according to interviews as well as internal emails and receipts reviewed by WNYC and ProPublica.

During the planning, Ivanka Trump, the president-elects eldest daughter and a senior executive with the Trump Organization, was involved in negotiating the price the hotel charged the 58th Presidential Inaugural Committee for venue rentals. A top inaugural planner emailed Ivanka and others at the company to express my concern that the hotel was overcharging for its event spaces, worrying of what would happen when this is audited.

If the Trump hotel charged more than the going rate for the venues, it could violate tax law. The inaugural committees payments to the Trump Organization and Ivanka Trumps role have not been previously reported or disclosed in public filings.

The fact that the inaugural committee did business with the Trump Organization raises huge ethical questions about the potential for undue enrichment, said Marcus Owens, the former head of the division of the Internal Revenue Service that oversees nonprofits.

Inaugural workers had other misgivings. Rick Gates, then the deputy to the chairman of the inaugural, asked some vendors to take payments directly from donors, rather than through the committee, according to two people with direct knowledge. The vendors felt the request was unusual and concerning, according to these people, who spoke on condition of anonymity because they signed confidentiality agreements. It is not clear whether any vendors took him up on his request.

The revelations about the inaugurations finances show how Trump blurred the lines between his political and business lives, as the real estate mogul ascended to the presidency.

On Thursday, The Wall Street Journal reported that federal prosecutors in New York have opened a criminal investigation into whether the inaugural committee misspent money and whether donors gave in return for political favors, citing people familiar with the matter. In addition, The New York Times reported that...

Now the liberal media is trying to blame the Border Patrol for her death.

Her parents did.

In what universe would this be the fault of the US government?

A seven-year-old girl who US officials say tried to cross the Mexico-US border illegally with her family has died hours after being taken into custody.

The Guatemalan girl, who authorities there have named as Jackeline Caal, died of dehydration and shock, the Washington Post reports.

AP news agency quotes border officials as saying she had not had food or water for several days.

Thousands of migrants have travelled from Central America to the US border.

US litters Kosovo streets with its flag as the region votes to create vassal army, Serbs respond with flying Serbian flag "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

American flags were flown over the Albanian-majority south side of Mitrovica in Kosovo as the region voted to create its own army. In response, buildings on the north side were draped in Serbian flags, hanging out of windows. Peacekeepers from the NATO force KFOR rolled onto the bridge connecting the two halves of the divided city of Mitrovica in Kosovo on Thursday, as the breakaway region's MPs prepared to approve the creation of its own army. The streets behind the peacekeepers' armed vehicles, on the Albanian-majority southern side of the city, were adorned with strings of overhanging American flags - the US being about the only major international player that backed the idea of a Kosovan army.

TRUMP CHOSEN

The world is reeling back and forth like a drunkard as genocide is being committed before our eyes and most refuse to see it.  From the toxic chemicals placed in our foods grown from GMO seeds, to the polluted and scarce waters we are given and told are safe to drink.  From deadly vaccines to the cloud seeded sky that create extreme, monstrous weather and space based weapons that move tectonic plates causing the earth to quake and death star beams that scorch the earth with precision accuracy, leaving behind an eerie trail where fire melts steel but touches not the leaves on the trees.  They tell us it is a wild fire and most believe it. Entire communities are snuffed to the ground flattened with little debris, as though it was done with a sophisticated precision laser beam.  But, move along people there is nothing here to see except the aftermath of a wild fire. One that skips and hops around destroying randomly at its own will and we have nothing that will put it out.

Documents Reveal Reddit Co-Founder Aaron Swartz Was Caught Up in Warrantless FBI Data Collection That Would Later Be Used Against Him "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Shocking new documents obtained by Property of the People reveal that Reddit co-founder and famed digital activist Aaron Swartz was caught up in warrantless FBI email data collection which would later be used against him in an unrelated case.

Swartz is widely recognized as the face of everything wrong with the Computer Fraud and Abuse Act.

In 2013, Swartz killed himself after being aggressively prosecuted for downloading academic articles from a subscription-based research website JSTOR at MIT, his university with the intention of making them available to the public. He was facing 35 years in prison for his efforts to open access to scientific publications to wider audiences.

Information is power. But like all power, there are those who want to keep it for themselves, Swartz wrote in his Guerrilla Open Access Manifesto. Forcing academics to pay money to read the work of their colleagues? Scanning entire libraries but only allowing the folks at Google to read them? Providing scientific articles to those at elite universities in the First World, but not to children in the Global South? Its outrageous and unacceptable.

The newly released documents reveal that in 2008, roughly five years prior to the case that would ultimately lead to him taking his own life, his emails were caught up in an investigation into al Qaeda.

Later that year, Swartz came under investigation by the FBI who were seeking to determine if he had violated any laws by downloading millions of court documents from PACER. The government ultimately did not press charges in that case because the documents were public.

However, according to the new report by Dell Cameron at Gizmodo, while the FBI was trying to build a case against the popular activist, they began quietly building a profile of the oft-described technology wunderkind, noting, for example, his involvement in the creation of the formatting language Markdown and RSS 1.0, and jotting down the various code frameworks that Swartz had helped to create and organizations that he had helped to found. Eventually, with all open source avenues exhausted, an FBI employee sat down at a computer terminal that, to most people, would appear plucked straight from the 1980s. The employee ran a search using the bureaus automated case support system, a portal to the motherlode of FBI investigative files.

Vintage Plotter Turned Fruit Spectrometer "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Fruit can be a tricky thing: if you buy it ripe youll be racing against time to eat the pieces before they turn into a mushy mess, but if you buy the ones which are a bit before their prime its not always easy to tell when theyre ready to eat. Do you smell it? Squeeze it? Toss it on the counter to see if it bounces? In the end you forget about them and they go bad anyway. Thats why here at Hackaday we sustain ourselves with only collected rainwater and thermo-stabilized military rations.

But thankfully Cornell students [Christina Chang], [Michelle Feng], and [Russell Silva] have come up with a delightfully high-tech solution to this decidedly low-tech problem. Rather than rely on human senses to determine when a counter full of fruit has ripened, they propose an automated system which uses a motorized spectrometer to scan an arrangement of fruit.

Why Do Fundamentalist Christians Support Israel Right Or Wrong? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

479

It appears that many fundamentalist Christians support the hard-line policies of the Israeli Government (currently consisting of the parties Likud, United Torah Judaism, Shas, Kulanu and the Jewish Home) more blindly and fanatically than most Jews do. Christian and Jewish Zionist organizations in the US have combined their lobbying efforts, their targets being governors and state legislatures.

Approximately 26 states more than half have enacted laws or executive orders to prohibit their state governments from awarding contracts to companies that support the BDS program, the Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions against Israeli program. This BDS movement uses boycott-related tactics against Israel or the Israeli-Occupied Territories in an attempt to get Israel to stop oppressing the Palestinians.

This is where American politicians interact with international issues and lobby groups. For instance, Kentucky Republican Gov. Matt Bevin, a Christian fundamentalist, issued an executive order on November 16, 2018 that states that the Commonwealth of Kentucky unequivocally rejects the BDS practices and stands firmly with Israel, noting that these BDS practices threaten the sovereignty and security of a US ally and friend of the Commonwealth.

Israeli Ambassador Ron Dermer and Consul General of Israel to the Southeast United States, Judith Varnai Shorer, and Dave Wicker, Congressional Liaison for Christians United for Israeli (CUFI) joined Governor Bevin at the signing ceremony of this order in the State Capitol building. The event was presented as if they, the people of Kentucky, and the United States, were collectively making a moral stand in support of the State of Israel.

Politicians such as Governor Bevin have called the BDS movement anti-Semitic and repugnant. He referenced passages from the Book of Ezekiel about being a watchman, saying Kentucky was watching and sounding the alarm.

In reality, however, the BDS movement is a nonviolent way to support the Palestinian cause in light of illegal Israeli settlements, the seizure of Palestinian land and the blatant refusal to abide by many UN resolutions over the years.....

The New Year Is Going to Start Off With a Bang Due to a Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse! "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Throughout 2018 we dealt with a roller-coaster year when it comes to our astrological experiences, hitting its peak as 7 planets moved into retrograde simultaneously. While 2019 is predicted to be a little easier on us, dont hold your breath its starting out with a bang!

The New Year is just around the corner, a time for fresh starts and new beginnings. If you havent already considered your plans for the coming year in terms of what you hope to accomplish this year, nows your time! The world is in the palm of your hand, yours for the choosing. Close your eyes for a moment where do you picture yourself at this time next year? Dont sell yourself short.

On January 20/21 we will be treated to an incredible sigh, a Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse. The term blood moon refers to an astrological phenomenon when the moon, usually a whitish color in the night sky, appears a ruddy-brown or red color. This is a side effect of a full eclipse, in which a small amount of light from the sunrises and sunsets here on Earth falls upon the moon, these specific light waves reflecting back to us in this reddish tint.

As it requires such specific circumstances with the presence of a total eclipse, these events dont happen often. Even more impressive is that this specific blood moon will be visible throughout all of North and South America, as well as some parts of Europe, Africa, and Asia, assuming there are no unforeseen issues with the weather. Its going to be an incredible sight and one that you dont want to miss!

However, this astrological event isnt just going to be visually impressive. The Super Blood Moon Total Lunar Eclipse also carries an incredible energy, one that is going to have a significant impact on our lives.

Much like the planets in our solar system, the moon also rules over a specific area of our lives our emotions. As we move through the moons phases, our emotional state will ebb and flow. The full moon is the highest point, the point where our emotions are at its most intense. Feelings like annoyance or happiness quickly become anger and joy, strong feelings that are impossible to avoid. These feelings are further intensified with the super-moon, a time in which the moon is seen as bigger and brighter than ever.

Combine this with the energy of the total lunar eclipse, and there is no better time to make some major life moves. Astrologists recognize a lunar eclipse as the closing of a chapter, time to pu...

The United States has denounced the "predatory" practices of Russia and China in Africa as it unveiled a refocus of its strategy that will include an end to "indiscriminate assistance across the entire continent." National-security adviser John Bolton said on December 13 that the new strategy would look to counter the efforts of Moscow and Beijing, which he accused of "deliberately and aggressively targeting their investments in the region to gain a competitive advantage." Bolton said Russia is "seeking to increase its influence in the region through corrupt economic dealings." He accused Moscow of selling arms and energy in exchange for votes at the UN "that keep strongmen in power, undermine peace and security, and run counter to the best interests of the African people."

Prosecutors now probing Trump inauguration spending "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Federal prosecutors in Manhattan are looking into whether President Trump's inaugural committee misspent funds or accepted donations in exchange for access to the administration, The Wall Street Journal reported Thursday. The Journal reported that many of the president's biggest campaign supporters were contributors to his inaugural fund. Donating in exchange for political favors or using funds for purposes other than the inauguration could violate federal laws. The news outlet, citing people familiar with the matter, reported that the investigation is in its early stages, and stemmed from materials obtained during an FBI raid earlier this year of longtime Trump attorney Michael Cohen. Investigators in those raids reportedly obtained a recorded conversation between Cohen and Stephanie Winston Wolkoff, a former adviser to first lady Melania Trump who worked on the inauguration. Wolkoff is heard expressing concern about how the committee was spending money, the Journal reported, but...

High temperature superconductivity record "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

When current flows in materials, it generates heat because of the resistance it encounters. This causes the materials to get hot and this has to be accounted for when designing electrical systems in order to avoid fires or meltdowns. This heat is also a major source of energy dissipation and loss. Superconductors are materials that do not have any resistance to the flow of current and thus can cut down energy consumption tremendously.

Superconductivity was first discovered more than a century ago in 1911 but the catch was that those materials only became superconductors at extremely low temperatures close to absolute zero (at below 4K which is around -269C) that could only be reached using liquid helium. This made it impractical for everyday use and the search was on to see if materials could be found that would work at higher temperatures, with the ultimate goal being room temperature superconductivity. If that is achieved, it would enable a whole host of revolutionary new technology.

The superconducting temperatures crept higher but seemed to plateau at about 30K (243C). A big breakthrough came in 1986 with the discovery of certain ceramic materials that were superconducting at 138 K (135C), which could be reached much more cheaply using liquid nitrogen. Temperatures started creeping higher again but slowly but now a scientific group has claimed that they have reached a new record temperature of 250K (-23C), which is a big jump from the previous record of 203K (-70C). This is a temperature that is achieved in winter in areas near the poles. The material also has to be at an extremely high pressure of 170 GPa which is about 1,677,769 times atmospheric pressure.

Actually three conditions usually have to be met before a material is declared to be a true superconductor.

There are three tests, reports MIT Technology Review, that are considered the gold standard for superconductivity, and the team has only achieved two: the drop in resistance below a critical temperature threshold, and replacing elements in the material with heavier isotopes to observe a corresponding drop in superconductivity temperature.

The third is the Meissner effect, which is the name given to one of the signatures of superconductivity. As the material passes below the critical temperature and transitions into superconductivity, it ejects its magnetic field.

The team has yet to observe this phenomenon because their sample is so small well below the detection capabilities of their magnetometer. However, the transition into superconductivity has an effect on the external magnetic field, too. Its not a direct detection, but the team was a...

Verizon Signals That its Yahoo! and AOL Divisions Are Almost Worthless "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In news that nobody could have foreseen and will be a shock to everyone:

Verizon signals its Yahoo and AOL divisions are almost worthless

The on-paper assessment represents a realization that Verizon's online ad strategy, called Oath, is a bust.

Only a year and a half after it built Oath from the assets of the communications giants Yahoo and AOL, Verizon now says they're virtually worthless. In a filing Tuesday with the Securities and Exchange Commission, or SEC, Verizon Communications Inc. said it was taking a $4.6 billion charge on the goodwill balance of Oath, the division it created in June 2017 after it spent billions of dollars to buy Yahoo Inc. and AOL Inc.

[...] Oath was supposed to be Verizon's big push into web-driven advertising, a bid to compete with behemoths like Google LLC and Facebook Inc. in the U.S. online ad market, which the Internet Advertising Bureau projects could top $100 billion this year. But rather than eat into Google's and Facebook's market shares, Oath's ad revenue fell by 7 percent in the third quarter, which ended Sept. 30, to just $1.8 billion.

Google's parent company, Alphabet Inc., by comparison, hoovered up $29 billion in ad revenue in the same three months, a rise of more than 10 percent over the previous quarter. [...] Meanwhile, the growth of another player, Amazon Advertising which outpaced Oath with $2.5 billion in ad sales in the third quarter has pushed Oath even lower down the food chain.

[...] Writing off 96 percent of its value is like "ripping off the Oath band-aid," Fritzsche wrote. [...] Verizon bought AOL for $4.4 billion in 2015, and it bought Yahoo for $4.5 billion in 2017. It then merged them into a new venture called Oath.

Who could possibly have imagined that with big names like AOL and Yahoo! this venture wouldn't compete well against the mere likes of Google, Facebook, and Amazon.

Further revelations may be forthcoming soon following an order entered late yesterday by presiding judge Emmet Sullivan, directing the special counsel's office to file with the court any 302s or memorandum relevant to Flynn's interview. Flynn, who served briefly as President Donald Trump's national security advisor, pleaded guilty more than a year ago to making false statements to federal investigators during a January 24, 2017 interview. During that interview, Strzok and (presumably) Pientka questioned Flynn about a telephone conversation the Trump advisor had with Russian...

China to suspend added tariff on US autos "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

China has said it will temporarily halt its additional 25 percent tariff on vehicles made in the United States. The relief will last for three months staring from January 1, as part of an agreed truce between Beijing and Washington. The Chinese finance ministry said on its website that China will suspend 25 percent tariffs on 144 vehicles and auto parts originating from the U.S. and 5 percent tariffs on an additional 67 auto items. U.S. President Donald Trump and President Xi Jinping agreed to lessen the impact of trade tariffs for the first 90 days of 2019, following a dinner in Argentina on December 1. The U.S. has slapped a 25 percent tariff on finished vehicles built in China and 10 percent on most auto parts. China's 40 percent tariff on U.S. car imports will now reduce to 15 percent for 90 days. That brings the auto tariffs in China back down to the same level as before the point that the two countries began imposing tit-for-tat levies.

Erdogan: 'Cleanse them'; remove Kurdish militias or Turkey will send troops "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The US must have Kurdish militias withdraw from the Syrian town of Manbij, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said Friday, otherwise he will order his troops to take the key settlement. The threat, delivered during a speech in Istanbul, ramps up Erdogan's rhetoric targeting the YPG militias. Earlier on Wednesday, he publicly complained that the US, which support the Kurds in northeastern Syria, is failing to deliver on its promise to clear Manbij of Kurdish fighters. Ankara considers Syrian Kurdish paramilitaries as an extension of the Turkey-based anti-government guerrillas and brands the YPG as terrorists. "Manbij is a place where Arabs live, but they have surrendered the area to the terror organization," the Turkish president told a judiciary conference. "Now we are saying that you should cleanse, remove them, or else we will enter Manbij. I am speaking very clearly."

Truce agreement achieved for Yemen's lifeline port city of Hudaydah "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Warring sides in Yemen's conflict have agreed to a cease-fire for the key port city of Hudaydah. The delegations from the Yemeni government and the Shi'ite Huthi rebels reached agreement on December 13 at the end of UN-brokered talks in Sweden aimed at ending nearly four years of civil war. The Red Sea port city of Hudaydah is the main lifeline for two-thirds of the country, and UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres said the cease-fire was crucial to getting aid to millions of Yemenis. The agreement will see "a mutual redeployment of forces from the port and the city and the establishment of a governorate-wide cease-fire," Guterres said. "The UN will play a leading role in the port and this will facilitate the humanitarian access and the flow of goods to the civilian population. And it will improve the living conditions for millions of Yemenis. The agreement could "be a starting point for peace and for ending [the] humanitarian crisis in Yemen."

SOTT FOCUS: SOTT Earth Changes Summary - November 2018: Extreme Weather, Planetary Upheaval, Meteor Fireballs "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This last month of November the town of Paradise in California turned into a living hell. Apocalyptic wildfires ravaged the state triggering mass evacuations, causing 85 deaths and record losses. 1,890,438 acres were turned to ashes. But that's not all, floods and snow have been added to the deadly mix causing more destruction. Seismic activity and other geological phenomena increased in November. A 6.3 degree earthquake in Iran and a 7.0 in Anchorage, Alaska, to mention the most significant. Meanwhile, volcanoes in Guatemala, Russia, Mexico, and Italy all sprung into action and India and Saudi Arabia were affected by huge earth cracks that are becoming more common around the world. The earth appears to be 'opening up'. Heavy rain, floods and big hail have become the new normal - even in some countries' dry season - causing hundreds of deaths this month, failed crops and infrastructure damage.

BREAKING: Mueller Filing Confirms General Flynn Was Set Up FBI Agents DID NOT Believe Flynn Was Lying "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

WHERE IS THE ORIGINAL 302 REPORT ON FLYNN??

Special Counsel Robert Mueller filed his memo responding to Flynn at the Friday afternoon deadline and it confirmed General Flynn was set up.

Judge Sullivan, who is assigned to General Flynns case demanded to see the FBI summary 302 report about the ambush Flynn interview according to a new court filing. A 302 interview with Peter Strzok about Flynns ambush interview was released Friday Was Flynns original 302 filed with the judge under seal?

The Special Counsel responded to Flynns memo on Friday by defending the circumstances behind the Flynn ambush interview, claiming Flynn tried to minimize what he did this is a flat out lie.

The Special Counsel cited a 302 interview with Peter Strzok about the Flynn ambush interview dated July 19th, 2017 this 302 report was taken SIX MONTHS after the ambush interview.

Peter Strzoks July 19th 302 interview, the entire reason for the General Flynn charge was conducted 4 days after Lisa Page was removed from the Special Counsel and just a few days before Strzok was fired by Robert Mueller.

If there is no original 302 on Flynn, it is a violation of FBI policy which is to have a contemporaneous record when interviewing a subject Sara Carter noted that FBI reports must be placed in the system in a 1-A file within five days of the interview, said Jeff Danik, former FBI SAC.

POLL: Should Trump Pardon General Flynn?

Where is the ORIGINAL Flynn 302? Was the 302 altered, edited, re-written or never even prepared in a timely manner? General Flynn and the American people deserve answers.

This photo by Frans Frenken shows a Cretaceous fossil sharks tooth from the Dutch Maastricht ENCI quarry.

Translated from Dutch ANP news agency today:

Old shark teeth in Limburg ENCI quarry

Five teeth of an extinct mackerel shark were found in the ENCI quarry in Maastricht. According to conservation organisation Natuurmonumenten the animal was about 4 to 5 meters long. It lived about 66 to 68 million years ago.

Just before the Cretaceous-Tertiary extinction event which killed the dinosaurs and many other animals.

South Limburg was then a shallow subtropical inland sea.

Mackerel shark

The triangular teeth are about 2.5 centimeters. The mackerel shark used to eat sea turtles, fish and other animals. The first tooth was accidentally found during a guided tour of Natuurmonumenten volunteers on 17 November. On December 1 someone else found four more shark teeth.

The ENCI quarry has been used since 1926 to extract limestone. That stopped this year. The area is now being transformed into a nature and recreation area, to be opened in 2020. In the limestone layers in the quarry are many remains of prehistoric animals, such as sea urchins, corals, cephalopods and seashells.

Amid the George HW Bush imperial death-orgy, the endless saga of Midtown Mussolini's daily news cycle, the seemingly unprecedented political upsurge in France, and countless other show-stopping news stories, you likely missed three very sad, yet revealing, incidents out of the Sahel region of West-Central Africa. First, on November 18th, a massive offensive against a Nigerian military base by a faction of the Boko Haram terror group known as the Islamic State West Africa (ISWAP) killed upwards of 100 soldiers. The surprise attack came at a time when Nigerian President Muhammadu Buhari, who famously (and repeatedly) has declared victory against Boko Haram and terrorism, has faced a crisis of legitimacy, falling approval ratings, and an impending election in early 2019.

AIs Strive to Juggle Signals and Thwart Jammers in DARPAs Spectrum Challenge "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Six teams won US $750,000 each by showing that their AIs could responsibly manage spectrum

Its not clear which is more challenging: constructing AIs that can collaboratively learn to manage radio spectrum more effectively than humans can, or presenting the results in a way that isnt snooze-inducing. Yet both were accomplished during Phase 2 of the U.S. Defense Advanced Research Projects Agencys (DARPA) Spectrum Collaboration Challenge (SC2), held on 12 December at the Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics Lab.

For three hours, presenters cracked jokes and gave a play-by-play rundown of test results, complete with hand-drawn circles and arrows, that would have made any sportscaster proud. While watching replays of the most high-stakes tests, the audience gasped and cheered and shouted encouragement at the AI programs.

AI-managed spectrum allocation might not seem important enough to celebrate with such zeal. But bandwidth is a finite resource, and engineers are searching for ways to squeeze as many bits as possible out of every hertz. One way to avoid a spectrum crunch is to teach machines to be better at managing bandwidth than humans could ever hope to be. That idea is important enough that DARPA has dedicated a Grand Challenge to it, which completed its Phase 1 competition in December 2017.

Rather than regulators chopping spectrum into defined, rigidly-allocated bands, the hope is that devices can learn to autonomously manage their own spectrum use. That means training devices to listen for gaps in transmissions on viable frequencies, broadcast which frequencies they intend to use ahead of time, and perhaps most importantly, negotiate with nearby devices that also need to send and receive signals.

DARPA tested those skills in a series of matches representing scenarios that such an AI might encounter in the real world, like managing transmissions from squads of soldiers deployed in an urban environment, or from Wi-Fi routers trying to deliver service despite a nearby radio jammer.

Each AI scored points based on the number of connections it was able to deliver using the available spectrumspectrum it was sharing with two, three, or four other AIs at a time. The kicker is that all the participating AIs in each match only earned as many points as the lowest-scoring AI in the group, to ensure the AIs were sharing resources fairly rather than battling for spectrum supremacy.

DARPA tallied the points each AI earned across the more than 400 ma...

Egyptian Journalist Detained in Public Bathroom, Beaten by Police at Airport "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

At 4pm on Thursday 14 December Egyptian journalist AbdulRahman Ezz was prevented from boarding his flight to France from Edinburgh Airport where he intended to cover the yellow vest demonstrations in Paris.

Waiting for him at the door of the plane was a policeman wearing civilian uniform who asked for a brief word before he continued to board. Have I done something wrong? he asked. Ezz had been through a similar ordeal last year when he was detained on a flight from Istanbul for six hours. His camera, phone and computer were confiscated and not returned to him for a week.

Its no problem, replied the policeman, leading him aside and gesturing towards another woman. Myself and my colleague just have some questions, come to this room. He went on to inform Ezz that the interview would be held under the Schedule 7 of the Terrorism Act Law 2000, which has been described by advocacy group Liberty as a broad and intrusive power to stop individuals at airports without even suspecting the person has been involved in terrorism.

Powers like this are ripe for overuse and abuse, they state on their website. They are invariably used in discriminatory fashion, with stops based on stereotype rather than genuine suspicion.

Once inside the room it became clear that Ezz would not be arriving in Paris in two hours. I will miss my flight, he told the policeman. He asked if he could call his wife, who was expecting a phone call from him when he landed, and his colleague at Al Jazeera Arabic who would receive him at Charles de Gaulle. All of his requests were turned down.

Ezz says he was asked by the policeman to remain silent, but he wanted answers: Why couldnt he contact his family? Why had he been detained? Was it because of his beard, the colour of his skin, or his religion? He was told again to remain quiet and when he did not was taken out of the room and forced aggressively into a public, disabled toilet in the corridor. The officer holding him shut the door, held his arms behind his back and informed Ezz that this was procedure.

Does the law allow you to keep me in here? he asked the officer, who in response began to punch him in the stomach. The policemen standing outside came inside the toilet and asked him to be quiet, told him he was breaching the peace and scaring the women and children outside. You are violating my human rights, replied Ezz and asked agai...

6-Year-Old Separated From His Father Tells Judge He Wants to Go Home "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Nearly an hour into Judge Anibal Martinezs afternoon immigration docket, the bailiff called out Wilder Maldonados name. The 6-year-old hadnt made a fuss about the wait, quietly coloring pictures of animals. Now, he set aside his blue crayon, tiptoed up to the defendants table and took a long, deep breath.

Wilder Hilario Maldonado Cabrera, chubby-cheeked with a toothless grin, has done a lot of waiting. He and his father left grinding poverty El Salvador for the United States in June, but they were caught by Border Patrol agents after they illegally entered the country. The agents then separated the pair along with nearly 3,000 others as part of the administrations zero-tolerance policy. Faced with sweeping condemnations, the administration retreated from the policy and, led by immigrant advocates and lawyers, began putting the families back together. Wilders case is one of the last that remains unresolved.

Since their separation, Wilder has been living in a temporary foster home in San Antonio while his father is held in an immigration detention facility less than an hours drive away. Wilder has spent the last six months one-twelfth of his life in limbo, waiting for his fathers plea for asylum to work its way through the system and determine whether the two of them could start a new life in the United States, or be sent back to the one they left.

Part of Wilders waiting involved coming to Martinezs court. Wilder was last here a few weeks ago, right before Thanksgiving. That day, he was striking, wearing a hat stitched with two googly eyes and a red yarn mohawk. This time, he dressed without flourish, in a dark denim jacket with gray sleeves. Last time, he appeared alone, without a lawyer. This time, his fathers lawyer, Thelma O. Garcia, appeared on both the father and sons behalf.

Garcia said that Wilders father had been denied asylum and had decided not to appeal any further. Hed grown desperate sitting in detention, while his wife and three other children remained back
