Wiederaufbau in Syrien "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(Eigener Bericht) - Deutsche Unternehmen suchen sich fr den knftigen Wiederaufbau in Syrien in Stellung zu bringen. Man beobachte die Entwicklung in dem Land "sehr genau" und registriere bereits "eine Reihe von ersten vorsichtigen Anfragen", berichtet der fr Nahost zustndige Referatsleiter beim Deutschen Industrie- und Handelskammertag (DIHK). Anlass fr die uerung ist die gestern zu Ende gegangene Damascus International Fair, eine der traditionsreichsten Messen der Region, die in diesem Jahr zum ersten Mal seit Beginn des Krieges wieder stattfinden konnte. Gute Aussichten, beim syrischen Wiederaufbau zum Zuge zu kommen, werden vor allem Unternehmen aus Russland, Iran und China eingerumt. Die Bundesregierung hat sich seit 2012 zwar um Schritte zur Nothilfe und zum Wiederaufbau bemht, dies jedoch auf die von Aufstndischen kontrollierten Regionen beschrnkt. Davon profitiert haben auch Gebiete wie die Provinz Idlib, die heute vom Al Qaida-Ableger Al Nusra (umbenannt in Tahrir al Sham) beherrscht wird.

Leading ivory trade investigator slain in Tanzania "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

DAR ES SALAAM, Tanzania One of Africas top ivory trade investigators has been shot dead by gunmen in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Wayne Lotter was the co-founder and President of PAMS Foundation, which set up and supported the elite unit behind more than 2,000 arrests since November 2014. He was killed late on Wednesday, while traveling in a taxi from the airport to the quiet suburb of Masaki. He had previously received death threats. On Thursday, the famous conservationist Dr. Jane Goodall said he had been a hero of mine, and a hero to many, who was prepared to carry on no matter what. She added: If this cowardly shooting was an attempt to bring the work of the PAMS Foundation to an end, it will fail. Wayne Lotter, one of Africas top ivory trade investigators, has been shot dead by gunmen in Dar es Salaam, Tanzania. Photo by Krissie Clark/PAMS Foundation. Tanzania lost more than 60 percent of its elephants between 2009 and 2014, according to latest elephant census data. Poaching is fueled by the demand for ivory, primarily from Asian countries, including China. PAMS Foundation estimated that if that trend had continued, there would now be just 15,000 elephants left in the country. Wayne Lotter has been credited with helping to turn the tide on poaching in Tanzania, restoring elephant numbers to an estimated 40,000 by introducing an intelligence-led approach to policing ivory trafficking networks.

Turnbull calls in energy bosses again "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Malcolm Turnbull has ordered energy bosses to a second meeting after an audit revealed more than a million households are still paying the highest rates for electricity.

The prime minister says the number paying more than they need could be even higher because they are not on a suitable plan or their discounted offer has expired and they havent been told.

What we are securing is (the companies) commitment to make sure their customers know whether they are on the right plan, Mr Turnbull told FOX FM on Monday.

I want to make sure that as far as we can manage it no Australian is paying more than they need to for electricity.

Mr Turnbull says retailers have already committed to telling customers when their plans are coming to an end.

That will be reaffirmed at a meeting in Sydney on Wednesday, the second in three weeks.

Mr Turnbull says he is already aware of reports of people being offered 25 to 27 per cent discounts.

The postal vote for gay marriage will take place in mid-September. file pic)

Conservatives who support same-sex marriage have launched a campaign to convince their voters to say yes in the coming postal survey.

The campaign features messages from Liberal and Nationals party elders including federal cabinet ministers Christopher Pyne and Kelly ODwyer, Tasmanian premier Will Hodgman, and former Victorian premier Jeff Kennett as well as voters and party members.

There is a very strong case for same sex marriage within the liberal and conservative traditions embodied by the Liberal Party, spokesman Luke Barnes said.

He says this is reflected in support among Liberal Party members and politicians as well as growing support within the Nationals.Meanwhile, polling commissioned by marriage equality advocates finds two-thirds of Catholic Australians say theyll vote yes in the coming ballot broadly in line with repeated polling for the entire community.

The proportions were similar for Australians from other religions, the Newgate Research poll found.

The upper management of the (Catholic) Church isnt listening to the flock who have made up their minds on marriage equality because its about their friends, family members and neighbours, Equality Campaign executive director Tiernan Brady said.

This is about civil marriage, not religious marriage. Allowing lesbian and gay couples to have access to civil marriage will not interfere in any way with any religious sacrament and nor should it.

A record proportion of Australians have enrolled to vote after a push from both sides of the marriage campaign to encourage people to take part.

The Australian Bureau of Statistics will run the voluntary postal survey with ballots set to start arriving in letter boxes in mid-September, pending the outcome of a High Court challenge.

Renewable energy projects are booming "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Renewables generated enough energy in July to cover the power needs of almost three in four Australian households.

While renewables accounted for about 18.8 per cent of overall electricity generated, this was enough to power 8.2 million households across both the east and west coast grids, a new monthly renewable energy index finds.

The new Australian Renewable Energy Index, launched on Monday by market analysts Green Energy Markets and advocacy group GetUp, will track each month the amount of renewable energy Australia relies on, the jobs it creates and the environmental benefits.

The July 2017 report finds there are 53 large-scale renewable energy projects being built (seven more than in June), creating about 9900 full-time construction jobs.

As well, more than 14,400 rooftop solar systems were installed in the month, with the industry estimated to support 4660 jobs.

Back in 2008, generation from solar was little more than a rounding error, Green Energy Market analysis and advisory director Tristan Edis said.

Systems installed in just the past year, however, will produce energy equivalent to the needs of over 226,000 homes (and) save consumers $1.5 billion off their electricity bills over the next 10 years.

He said the boom in renewable projects both large and small was underpinned by the renewable energy target, which runs out in 2020.

However, Mr Edis estimated if the current rate of construction kept up, Australia would be on track to meet the target of producing 23.5 per cent of energy from renewables by the end of 2018.

Rep Gomer VA Dems Colluded to Create Violence, 1768 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Water Smacker - Makes your water less acidic by ionization. https://www.watersmacker.com Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Rep Gomer VA Dems Colluded to Create Violence, 1768 Synopsis: According to Rep. Louie Gohmert (R-TX), the Dept. of Justice should mount a formal investigation into Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and Charlottesville Mayor Michael Signer for deliberately creating the conditions that led to violence in Charlottesville, VA on Aug. 12th,, then refusing to let the police stop it. Gohmert also called for a full investigation into the role of Jason Kessler, the white supremacist organizer of Unite the Right rally for his ties to both the Obama administration the Hillary Clinton campaign and Occupy Wall Street group. He has also written for CNN. In Nov. 2016 the month President Trump won his upset victory over Hillary Clinton, Kessler suddenly shifted from far left to announcing himself to be the leader of a new far right group, Unite the Right. UTR was the right-wing group who got the permit from Charlottesville to stage a right-wing rally. Kessler is now suspected of being a plant who purposely helped set up the violent clash to damage the reputation of President Trump, and the political right in general. According to Gohmert: You dont just go all of a sudden from having multiracial roommates to all of a sudden being a white supremacist that wants to join the Republican party.

If You Havent Heard About The Growing AFL Racism Scandal, You Soon Will "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Try as they might, the AFL hasnt quite been able to make the Hritier Lumumba racism scandal go away. Chris Graham explains what it is, and why.

You can put a new coat of paint on a busted old car, but its still just a busted old car with a new coat of paint. Equally, the Australian Football League can spruik its anti-racism credentials from the hilltops all it likes, but it still has a past pock-marked with vicious, deliberate racism and a present that, frankly, doesnt really look much different.

You might not have heard much yet but over the past few weeks, a few key events have happened.

Last week, the AFLs new diversity executive, Aboriginal woman Tanya Hosch, called bullshit on a private Adelaide Crows function she attended, headlined by ageing curiosity Greg Ritchie, a former Australian cricketer more famous for his character Mahatma Coat (an overtly racist depiction of a Pakistani cricket official) than anything he ever did on the field.

In case youve forgotten, heres Ritchie plying his trade on Channel 9s rugby league Footy Show in 1995, more than two decades ago.

It was racist back then, but by 2017 standards its staggering. But not quite as staggering as the fact that Crows Chairman Andrew Fagan and Port Adelaide Chairman David Koch (yes, Kochy, of Sunrise fame) were present at the recent event, and reportedly saw nothing wrong with Ritchies performance.

Caroline Wilson from The Age broke the story, noting: A comedy performer in his post-cricket career whose Punjabi Sikh character Mahatma Cote was a regular on Channel Nines NRL Footy Show, Ritchie was effectively banned by Cricket Australia from appearing at its functions over the 2012-13 season. This was after another performance at the Adelaide Oval during the first Test that resulted in allegations of racism from the South African cricket team.

So the Australian cricket team famous around the world for sledging and racist abuse bans the guy from performing because hes even too racist for them. Half a decade later, senior officials within the AFL a code which likes to claim its the national leader in addressing racism in sport sees nothing objectionable in a white man adopting a fake eastern accent, and throwing in a bit of misogyny for...

Anatomy Of A Trump Supporter "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


Who are these fellow Americans of ours who still support Trump? Are they really all addicted to prescription drugs? Are they all racists? Are they all just terminally stupid? I don't know many personally-- I admit it-- and the ones I do know are indeed incredibly stupid and willfully ignorant, racist and addicted to prescription drugs. But I was interested enough in knowing there are other Trump supporters out there who aren't that I read a piece by David Smith in The Guardian based on interviews with 9 Trumpists last week at the noisy little Nazi rally in Phoenix. (Yeah, I know-- Seor Trumpanzee claimed there were 15,000, but that was the Bernie rally in the same building a year ago; Trump's pathetic little rally, according to the Phoenix Fire Department, drew less than 4,200, many of whom left after Trump started boring them with his pointless and endless attacks on CNN.)

The first person they interviewed was a crackpot Arizona state senator, Sylvia Allen, a Mormon from Snowflake (really) who advocates making church attendance in the U.S. mandatory (really). She told The Guardian "Trump is a breath of fresh air. Hes totally not a political person. Hes a businessman: hes anti-left, hes anti-PC, hes anti-stupid. He just wants to go in and make the best deal for Americans that he can." I don't know what drugs she takes or how seriously addicted she is but...
Of course hes not racist. Thats a label people want to put on someone when they dont agree how to solve a problem. You dont see the issue, so you attack. Thats the way the left has operated in our country very effectively.

Herd Immunity vs. Viral Shedding: Whos Infecting Whom? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Herd Immunity vs. Viral Shedding: Whos Infecting Whom? | herd-immunity-vs-viral-shedding | General Health Medical & Health Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests Vaccines

Big Pharma and the Medical Establishment use the idea of herd immunity to induce fear and sell vaccines, yet viral shedding puts the notion on its head.

Herd immunity, or community immunity as it is also known, is one of the main arguments that pro-vaxxers (those advocating vaccination) advance to persuade people to take vaccines. Herd immunity, so it is claimed, provides indirect protection to the unvaccinated. How? Heres how the reasoning goes: if enough people get vaccinated, when a contagious disease hits a community, it spreads less quickly than if the majority were not vaccinated, since they are now protected. Thus, those unvaccinated few living among the vaccinated many can now enjoy some protection because the disease is finding it harder to spread and infect new individuals. This argument has many assumptions and flaws, as we shall see.

Interestingly enough, in recent times a concept that is essentially the opposite of herd immunity i.e. viral shedding has been in the news. You see, people using the argument of herd immunity generally claim that the unvaccinated help speed the spread of a disease, even encompassing those who got vaccinated. In other words, the unvaccinated can infect the vaccinated. The phenomenon of viral shedding, on the other hand, is showing that those who get vaccines get the virus in their body even if its weak or attenuated and the virus then sheds, can become contagious and can start spreading. In other words, the vaccinated can infect the unvaccinated. So which is the more true concept: herd immunity or viral shedding? Whos infecting whom?

Vaccine-Induced Herd Immunity is Full of Assumptions

To get to the bottom of this question, you need to take a close look at this notion of herd immunity. It contains the following assumptions:

The importance of community-based conservation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

International Institute for Environment and Development

The illegal wildlife trade particularly the poaching of high value, iconic species such as elephants, rhinos and tigers  tops the international conservation agenda. From Barack Obama to Prince William and a long list of high-profile celebrities, many influential people across the world are calling for action to stop this destructive trade.

The rise in international attention is reflected in the scale of investment committed to tackling this problem over US$1.3 billion since 2010. So far, much of this money has been allocated to conservation efforts that reduce demand for illegal products such as rhino horn or tiger bone, and strengthen law enforcement in the fight against this illegal trade.

But protecting wildlife is not just a concern for conservationists; the economic and social value of endangered species makes their survival crucial to the local communities living alongside them. It is vital that more is done to involve local people in protecting this wildlife.

Untapped local intelligence

Because of their proximity and knowledge of wildlife, local people are well placed to participate in efforts to combat poaching and the illegal trade. 

Yet only 15 per cent of the $1.3 billion invested since 2010 has been allocated to initiatives...

Russia installs Crimea bridge railway arch in unique operation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Russian engineers have begun a 72-hour moving operation to position a 227-meter-long railway arch for the Crimea Bridge on the piers located in the Kerch Strait in what is regarded as a "unique operation" in global bridge building. The arch, which stands 227 meters long and 45 meters high, was assembled onshore at the Kerch Peninsula. On Sunday, the construction teams started transporting the whole construction, which weighs more than 6,000 tonnes into place in the Kerch Strait, where it will be installed on special 35 meter-high piers and thus form one of the fairway arches of the Crimea Bridge. "The maritime operation [envisaged] in the Crimea Bridge construction project is without exaggeration unique for the world's bridge building," the deputy CEO on infrastructure projects of the Stroygazmontazh company, which is responsible for the operation, said, as cited by RIA news agency.

Finally, the Eclipse Shadow Caught, 1766 b "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

- Life Change Tea: Rid Your Body From Toxins! https://www.GetTheTea.com Good afternoon, Im still reporting on: Finally, the Eclipse Shadow Caught, 1766 b Synopsis: My first total eclipse of the sun was on March 7, 1970. The moons shadow barely skimmed the east coast of the United States. I drove down to Elizabeth City, NC to view it. The 1970 eclipse brought 3 mins 28 sec., of totality a full 60 seconds more than last Mondays eclipse. That made the 1970 eclipse a much darker shadow then the recent one. Why? Because the suns diameter is exactly 400 times that of the moons. Therefore, the closer the moon is to the earth, the bigger its shadow. Thats why you heard people say, I thought it would be darker than it was. Well, the good news is that the next total solar eclipse to hit the US will be on April 8, 2024 6-and-one-half years from now. Instead of 2 mins 28 seconds of totality, it will feature 4 mins 28 sec. of totality. That will be a really dark eclipse. For this last eclipse, the main thing I wanted to try to capture was the speed at which the moons shadow moves. For the 1970 eclipse, I was up high enough to see it coming across the flatlands. For this eclipse, thats why I tried to get up on a mountain to get that far view. So when we had to abandon that location due to a massive cloud, I was really disappointed. What I didnt realize was that I accidentally captured it with my GoPro camera and didnt realize it until last night. So this sequence, is sped up 4 times. It runs from 2 minutes before totality, until 1 minute after. Ive sped it up 4 times, so the entire sequence only lasts 82 seconds. Now, look at the distant clouds low on the horizon. Notice that in about 5 seconds from here they suddenly turn from white to dark. Thats the shadow racing our way at 1400 miles per hour. In a few more seconds it hits the low cloud deck directly overhead. In the first seconds of totality, you can see the suns corona peeking through a hole in the clouds. 35 seconds later, you see the shadow retreating across the cloud deck and just before it hits, you see the suns corona peeking through a final hole in the clouds.

C is for Chickasaw by Wiley Barnes (Chickasaw) and Aaron Long (Choctaw), published in 2014 by White Dog Press (Chickasaw Press), is definitely an alphabet book that every library in the country should get!

Here's the cover:



And here's the description:
C is for Chickasaw walks children through the letters of the alphabet, sharing elements of Chickasaw history, language, and culture along the way. Writing with multiple age groups in mind, Wiley Barnes has skillfully crafted rhyming verse that will capture and engage a younger child s imagination, while also including in-depth explanations of each object or concept that will resonate with older children. The colorful illustrations by Aaron Long reflect elements of Southeastern Native American art and serve to familiarize children with aspects of this distinctive artistic style. A supplementary section with questions and activities provides a springboard for further discussion and learning.

The figures on the cover are on the C page, but so are these (below) ... which just makes me want to jump up off my couch and do a fist pump!

Sculpting the future of mining
Nicholas Mangan is the son of a miner who explores mining, the environment and even the global political economy in his sculptures and videos. Nicholas's series about the Pacific island of Nauru's phosphate mining industry is owned by Te Papa, but it's currently on loan to the Dowse Art Gallery in Lower Hutt for as part of an exhibition called Limits to Growth. Lynn Freeman talks to Nicholas about the exhibition, which also compares a new form of mining - mining for bitcoins - with the ancient Rai stone money of the Micronesian island of Yap.

British artist John Stezaker and the art of collage
He's a great example of an artist hanging in there, waiting for their big break. For British artist John Stezaker the break came in 2011 when he held a retrospective of work he's been producing since the 1970s. John cuts out images from the past - actor head-shots, film stills and vintage postcards - then creates collages that are often disturbing and genre-bending. His first exhibition in New Zealand, Lost World, is showing at the City Gallery Wellington, before traveling to the Govett Brewster in New Plymouth and the Christchurch Art Gallery. He tells Lynn Freeman that even after all these year of cutting up photographs, it still sometimes feels like he's cutting through flesh:

Amateur Inventor Denies Murder And Mutilation Of Young Freelance Journalist "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The torso of a corpse was discovered last week by a cyclist off the coast of Denmark. Further investigation revealed the body belonged to 30-year-old Swedish freelance journalist, Kim Wall. Wall disappeared August 10th after boarding the homemade submarine of amateur inventor, Peter Madsen, 46.

The suspect denies homicide and desecration of a human body, Copenhagen police said in a statement regarding Madsen. Police continue to search for the arms, legs and head. They reported the torso had originally been attached to a metal object, presumably to weigh the body down and prevent its discovery.

In an original interview with Madsen, the suspect said he had dropped Wall off safely at a port in Copenhagen on the 10th. He later changed his statement, saying Wall died in an accident onboard and he buried her at sea. Traces of Walls blood were found on the sunken 40-tonne 18-meter (60 ft.) submarine. Police suspect Madsen intentionally drowned the marine craft following Walls death.

Village Grannies is a true 21st-century smoke shop. With a polished interior and chill vibe, the Grannies have created a space far from the usual dimly lit, crowded smoke shops that vie for sales of imported glass and tobacco.

The Village Grannies are 56-year-old Vered Behr and 60-year-old Zviah Eldar. Village Grannies just opened November last year in the East Village neighborhood of New York City and the shop is already creating a buzz. Voted Best Upscale Headshop for 2017 by New York Magazine, the Grannies are capitalizing on the newly expanded market for marijuana accessories.

Behr told VICE reporter Elyssa Goodman that, nowadays, smoking marijuana is Like having a drink at the bar across the street. Its something people do.

REAGAN BATTALION UNMASKED: Leaders Of Anonymous Anti-Trump Activist Group EXPOSED! [VIDEO] "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Reagan Battalion an anonymous that pretends to be operating with the conservative interest in mind has had a busy year. You may remember that back in February they launched a vicious smear campaign against Pro-Trump activist, Milo Yiannopoulos. Their campaign against him involved an edited video that managed to lose him his book deal, speaking engagement at CPAC, ultimately caused him to resign from Breitbart sooner than expected.

Since then, The Reagan Battalion has been previously tied to far left liberal PACs, Soros-funded activist groups, while enjoying a very cozy relationship with #NeverTrumper Ben Shapiro. Reagan Battalion has gone out of their way to attack President Trump and other Pro-Trump conservatives at every turn, in a since deleted tweet, they proclaimed The choice is abundantly clear!

Gonna have to just start killing if I dont get laid: White Supremacist Plots Mass Shooting Due to Sexual Frustration "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If white fragility wasnt harmful enough, pair it with male fragility and sexual frustration, and you have a potentially lethal combination.

Michael James Holt, a white supremacist from New South Australia, has admitted to stockpiling wepons and planning a mass shooting out of sexual frustration.

As reported by Raw Story:

Michael James Holt appeared Friday in an Australian court for a sentencing hearing after pleading guilty to a variety of firearms charges after police found his cache of homemade guns two years ago at his home, his grandfathers home and a hotel, reported The Sydney Morning Herald.

The 26-year-old later pleaded guilty to possessing and sharing child pornography after police found those images while investigating the shooting plot.

Prosecutors said the New South Australia man admitted to planning a mass shooting at a mall and also wanted to shoot teachers and students at a nearby school.

Holt admitted to an infatuation with neo-Nazi ideology and told a counselor that he believed Adolf Hitler was the greatest person to live, prosecutors told the sentencing judge.

Prosecutors presented more than 40 pages of text messages from Holt revealing his plan to shoot tourists and police, the newspaper reported and he blamed his violent urges on his inability to find a willing sexual partner.

WV-DEP May Have Messed Over 401 Certification for MVP "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Support: Appalachian Mountain Advocates

WV DEP ignored water quality in MVP permit, court filing argues

From an Article by Ken Ward, Jr., Charleston Gazette, August 16, 2017

WV Department of Environmental Protection Secretary Austin Caperton and his staff ignored serious threats to water quality when they approved a West Virginia permit for the Mountain Valley Pipeline, lawyers for environmental groups and citizen organizations say in a new legal brief filed this week.

WV-DEP officials approved a water quality certification for the MVP project despite not having fully reviewed its potential to degrade streams, failing to consider the water pollution effects from construction in areas upland from streams and not responding to an avalanche of public comments questioning the pipeline, the groups say.

Notwithstanding the clear and present threat to water quality from construction of the pipeline in the steep mountains of West Virginia, [the] WVDEP failed to adequately consider that threat, wrote Derek Teaney, one of the Appalachian Mountain Advocates lawyers representing the Sierra Club, the West Virginia Rivers Coalition and other groups.

Tuesday evening, citizen group lawyers filed an 82-page brief arguing to outline their legal challenge of a Clean Water Act certification that Caperton issued to approve the MVP, a natural gas pipeline proposed to run more than 300 miles from the Marcellus Shale fields of Wetzel County, West Virginia, to Pittsylvania County, Virginia.

In West Virginia, the pipeline corridor is nearly 200 miles long and would require nearly 150 miles of access roads. Construction would require 631 stream crossings and 424 wetlands crossings. Construction involves a 125-foot-wide right of way. Operation requires a permanent 50-foot right of way. The pipeline would disturb about 4,189 acres of soils that are classified as having the potential for severe water erosion, the lawyers note. More than 150 miles of the pipelines route through West Virginia is considered to have a high incidence of and high susceptibility to landslides.

Caperton, a former coal executive and energy consultant, approved the pipeline permit, issuing a news release that pointed reporters to the developers website for information about the potential economic be...

America's Color Revolution & How to Beat It "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Colour revolutions usually occur only in the countries blessed with a US diplomatic presence. You need an American embassy to find the prospective ruler to be uplifted by a human swell and placed on the throne; you need an American embassy to bring in enough cash to cover expenses of the organised mayhem; you need an American diplomat to protect the revolutionaries and to order the present dictator to desist. Could it be that there is now an American Embassy in America? The Great American Colour Revolution marches on. The script is very similar to the ones they have used overseas. Usually it includes toppled monuments. The pro-American forces toppled monuments to Saddam Hussein in Baghdad, to Felix Dzerzhinsky in Moscow, to Vladimir Lenin in Kiev, to the Russian soldier-liberator in Tallinn and Warsaw. And now the trend came back home to America like a boomerang, with toppling Confederate statues. This is not meaningless vandalism, but a symbolic declaration of victory. The victorious side topples the monuments of the defeated. And the defeated spitefully grumble, but can't do anything. However, watch their hands: everywhere and every time, the colour revolutionaries choose some dated memorials of little importance to the majority. This is a difference with real revolutions, where actual symbols of power go down.

Houston declares flash flood emergency, unprecedented 1.2m rainfall "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A flash flood emergency has been declared in the Houston area of Texas by the National Weather Service after water reached the second floors of houses south of the city. The heavy rains were brought about by hurricane Harvey, now downgraded to a tropical storm. Reports of water reaching the second storeys of houses and apartment complexes came not only from southern Houston, but also from Dickinson in nearby Galveston County. Some rivers in the Houston area were at around eight to ten feet (2.4-3 meters) over their banks, WBTV reported. Over a thousand people have been rescued from the affected area since early Saturday. "I know for a fact this is the worst flood Houston has ever experienced," Patrick Blood, National Weather Service meteorologist, told the Houston Chronicle. Blood warned that the "catastrophic flooding in the Houston metropolitan area is expected to worsen." The National Weather Service has warned that rainfall from Hurricane Harvey could reach 50 inches (1.27 meters) in some places, which would be the highest-ever level registered in Texas.

U.S. Ambassador to Vietnam: Who Is Dan Kritenbrink? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Daniel J. Kritenbrink, a career member of the Foreign Service and expert on Asia, was nominated July 26, 2017, to be the U.S. ambassador to Vietnam. If hes confirmed, it will be his first such assignment.

 

Kritenbrink grew up on a farm outside Ashland, Nebraska, the son of Joyce and Donald Kritenbrink. He attended Ashland High School, where he played basketball. Kritenbrink then went to the University of Nebraska-Kearney, where he earned a B.A. in political science in 1991 and gained an interest in foreign affairs during a class trip to the Soviet Union. He then went to the University of Virginia and received his M.A. in 1993. Kritenbrink began work on a Ph.D., but gave up his studies when he was accepted into the Foreign Service in 1994.

 

Kritenbrinks first overseas assignment was in Tokyo, moving in 1995 to Sapporo, Japan. Beginning in 1997, Kritenbrink served at the embassy in Kuwait before returning to Washington in 1999 to become staff assistant to the assistant secretary for Near Eastern affairs.

 

The following year, Kritenbrink was back at the embassy in Tokyo, where he served until 2004. He then took two years to learn Mandarin. In 2006, he got a chance to use his new skills as a political internal unit chief at the embassy in Beijing. He returned to the United States to serve as director of the Office of Chinese and Mongolian Affairs, and as acting deputy assistant secretary of state for East Asian and Pacific affairs. He was back in Beijing in 2011, first as chief of the political section internal unit and, beginning in 2013, as deputy chief of mission and charg daffaires.

 

Kritenbrink returned to Washington and in June 2015 was put in a key role, serving as Asia policy adviser to the National Security Council. In the waning days of the Obama administration, Kritenbrink addressed such issues as North Koreas nuclear program, the lifting of the U.S. arms embargo on Vietnam and Chinas construction of islands in the South China Sea. His last assignment before his nomination to be ambassador was senior adviser for North Korean policy.

 

Kritenbrink and his wife, Nami, whom he met while on his first assignment to Tokyo and married in 1996, have two children. He speaks Mandarin and Japanese.

Community members urge government to back safe injection facility "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The following report is the result of a collaborative effort, involving participants at the rally for an injecting room in Richmond, which took place on Saturday 27 August.

Hundreds of mainly residents and small business owners rallied in Richmond, in inner Melbourne, to call on the state Andrews government to support the setting up of a safe injection centre in the municipality.

The area around the Victoria Street restaurant strip has become Melbournes premier illicit drug distribution point and last year alone, there were 34 local drug use related deaths.

Local shopkeepers and residents have for a long time been calling on the government to do something about the problem. Trade in illicit drugs brings about a rise in local crime, committed by people desperate to raise the money for their addiction. The extent begging and hustling people at the doorways of local businesses is keeping customers away. Although only involving a tiny proportion, the rise in assaults in the street has been enough to cause alarm and diminish  the sense of safety. The large number of discarded syringes is another major issue.

At the same time, there is a growing realisation that the problem of addiction is essentially a health issue, which heavy handed policing is not going to solve and that the best option is to have a safe injecting centre that will provide needed services to users and give them the best chance to manage their situation.

A safe injecting centre is also seen as the best option for removing the presence of the drug trade from Victoria Street and around neighbouring residences.

The Yarra council supports the concept. But the Victorian governments current policy is to oppose it. Nevertheless, a current parliamentary inquiry will soon come down with a report and many of the submission that have been made to it, make it clear that the prevailing opinion of practitioners and others who work in the field that a changer in this policy would lead to a much better outcome. There is an expectation that the report will accept the expert input.

People came to the rally to point out that lack of action has caused preventable deaths. They heard heart-wrenching accounts of families who had lost loved ones to drug addiction.

Laura Turner spoke of the death of her sister Skye, who died from a heroin overdose in March 2017. She lay dead in the back of a van on Elizabeth Street in the CBD, that beautiful face, that incredible mind, had slipped away, she said.

Her sister could have been saved if medical assistance had been available when she took that final, fatal hit of heroin, she said, imploring the Victorian government to trial a supervised injecting facility and urging the community to adopt a mor...

And blue pill makes you liberal
Down in your mothers basement
Youre certainly in thrall
To the orange guy who wants to build a wall

If you chase white supremacist rabbits
Then you know youre going to fall
Down white supremacist wormholes
Where Breitbart makes the rules
Its fascist disguised as cool

When the men with the torches
Get up and tell you where to go
Bear in mind the President will blame you
When the two sides come to blows

Its a free country, so anything goes
When logic and proportion
Have fallen sloppy dead
And the white knights are marching onwards
If you dont join them, youre a dirty red
Remember what the President said:
Both sides are bad! Both sides are bad! Both sides are bad!

Violent "Color Revolution" in America? Attempted overthrow of Trump threatens to shred fabric of American society "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Manufactured Civil War, Guided Anarchy What is now unfolding in America is a process of engineered dissent which is controlled by the corporate elites. This process precludes the formation of a real mass movement against racism, social injustice and US led wars. This article by Larry Chin analyzes how the elite opponents of Donald Trump are manipulating public opinion with the support of the mainstream corporate media. Through staged protest events funded by corporate foundations, the unspoken objective is to create profound divisions within American society. These divisions preclude the formation of a meaningful and united protest movement. The objective of these staged protest movements against Trump is not to support democracy. Quite the opposite. It is to ensure complete control over the US State apparatus by a competing faction of the corporate establishment. Where is the US antiwar movement? Rarely are these engineered protests against US led wars. A grassroots and united movement against the Trump presidency and the Neocons, against war and social injustice is what has to be achieved. But this will not occur when several of the organizations which are leading the protest against Trump are supported and funded by Wall Street. Michel Chossudovsky, Global Research 2017

Serious Question "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Who amongst us doesn't deserve a presidential pardon for committing crimes like these?

The rules of the tent city were strict, arbitrary and brutally enforced. There are no newspapers allowed; Arpaio hated newspapers. The only food allowed for those of us in the work furlough program was the food in the vending machines, which was grossly overpriced.

During the sweltering summer, the temperature could reach 115 or 120 degrees. I was in the tents when we hit 120. It was impossible to stay cool in the oppressive heat. Everyone would strip down to their underwear. There was no cold water, only water from vending machines; and eventually, the machines would run out. People would faint; some had heatstroke. That summer, ambulances came about three times. One man died in his bed.

But the winter was even worse. During the winter, there were no heaters. Most jackets and heavily insulated pants werent allowed; they dont want you to be comfortable.

When the temperatures dropped, we were forced to come up with makeshift ways to keep ourselves warm. The showers were kept scalding hot during both summer and winter. We hated to shower, but we would fill our empty water bottles up with the nearly boiling water and put the bottles between our blankets when it was freezing outside. We also would save the plastic bags we found when we cleaned up the jail yard and wrap our feet with them, tucking hot water bottles inside to keep our feet warm while we slept.

We Must Define "Offenses Against the United States" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Between when Trump verbally committed to pardoning former Sheriff Joe Arpaio and when he actually did so last night, law professor Martin H. Redish of Northwestern University wrote a piece for the New York Times about the parameters of the presidential pardon power. What are the limits, and what can be done if the power is clearly abused?

Many legal scholars argue that the only possible redress is impeachment itself a politicized, drawn-out process. But there may be another route. If the pardon is challenged in court, we may discover that there are, in fact, limits to the presidents pardon power after all.

The only effective means courts have to prevent or stop governmental violations of constitutional rights is through injunctions. But injunctions have teeth only when they have the potential of a contempt conviction behind them. In other words, in issuing an injunction, a court is saying, stop doing that or else. The or else is a criminal conviction for contempt, leading to a fine, imprisonment or both. Absent the or else, the injunction is all but meaningless.

But if the president signals to government agents that there exists the likelihood of a pardon when they violate a judicial injunction that blocks his policies, he can all too easily circumvent the only effective means of enforcing constitutional restrictions on his behavior. Indeed, the president could even secretly promise a pardon to agents if they undertake illegal activity he desires.

In one sense, the pardon power pertains to any offense against the United States, and therefore would seem to cover anything that might happen in a federal court that brings punishment. Show up late to court and get slapped with contempt? Tell the judge to screw herself in the ear? Deliberately urinate on the floor? All of it can be construed as an offense against the United States federal government. But, as Prof. Redish notes, these arent things that bring people into court in the first place. They can be done as easily by the lawyers or the plaintiff as they can be done by the defendants. The court has the power to impose order and rules on its courtroom and on the procedure with which the trial will proceed. They can demand that jurors dont talk to each other or that lawyers dont talk to the press. They can demand that defendants not engage in certain behaviors or that police not enforce certain crimes while the issues at hand are adjudicated. These are more process issues than matters of guil...

The Democrats are Taking Napoleons Maxim Too Far "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I dont know if Napoleon Bonaparte actually said it or, if he did, what the proper translation might be, but its become a maxim that its unwise to interfere with your enemy when theyre in the process of making a mistake. In a lot of ways, I think this wisdom explains why we dont hear more from Democratic Party leaders. I saw that Nancy Pelosi chirped up yesterday and made a comment:

But that didnt really amount to anything more than an observation that the Republicans are making mistakes.

In fairness, the GOP is such a non-stop mess that it doesnt seem like there is ever a good time for the Democrats to step in and demand that people pay attention to them. Interjecting themselves in this Shit Show just invites people to hold them responsible for it in some small measure, either as obstructionists or as simply unhelpful. As long as theyre not suffering legislative defeats, their base doesnt have a whole lot to complain about, and as long as they get out of the way, independents will focus on the Republican personalities who are flailing about and sticking knives in each other.

Theres a cost to be being so invisible, though. For one thing, they seem irrelevant even if theyre not. For another, even when they present ideas, they dont follow up on them enough to have much impact. You cant rebrand if no one is paying attention to you.

I keep seeing quotes about the fact that no Republicans have reached out to the Democrats over the August recess to discuss the agenda for September. Thats kind of amazing considering that the Republican leadership and the White House will need Democratic votes to raise the debt ceiling. But maybe the Dems are playing a little too pat with their winning hands. If nothing else, theyre letting a delusional mindset persist among Republican leadership and the rank-and-file. Getting the GOP to understand their true position is probably going to be a process that requires them to walk slowly through the stages of denial.

The job of doing this is going to fall mainly on Mitch McConnell and Paul Ryan. When John Boehner walked through this minefield, it cost him his job. Still, the Democrats might at least articulate a...

Passengers will have their faces scanned when they first check in and at subsequent stages, theoretically allowing them to go through the whole boarding process quickly without encountering another human.

Australia announced in July an investment of Aus$22.5 million ($17.5 million) to introduce face recognition technology at all the country's international airports, while Dubai Airport is also trialling it.

[...] Robots are appearing at some major hubs, including at Seoul's Incheon airport, where they carry out tasks including cleaning and carrying luggage, while Changi's new terminal will have robotic cleaners complete with butlers' uniforms.

The article is a widely reprinted AFP story, but Business Traveller also has it's own walk through of the new terminal, which focuses on the overall experience of the traveller rather than the technology, but also includes some additional details on the system:

[...] the machine measures key facial features and structure rather than details such as haircuts and facial hair, so barring reconstructive surgery passengers can rest assured that the scanning will work even if they look slightly different to their passport photo. The scanning works by filming a short video and selecting the optimal frame that best meets the necessary criteria, making absolute stillness while the photo is being taken not necessary. Glasses do need to be removed during this process, however.

Philipsburgh, PA "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Philipsburg is 3hr by car north of Gettysburg, the high water mark of the south.

This house is on Rt 53, in a place where everyone drives through. I guess its pride, not prejudice or something. Im sure that anyone whos black feels thatd be a place they could stop and ask for help if their car broke down, right?

Occasionally I think about stopping and asking, but usually when Ive talked to my neighbors that fly confederate flags, it doesnt go well. They just spout the usual bullshit and then try to dismiss me as a ${label} ${label} which is pretty funny since, by flying a flag that says redneck on it, this household is labeling themselves.

Ministers directive an act of intimidation says leading clinician "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

SCOTT WAIDE | EMTV Dr John Yockopua

PORT MORESBY - A ministerial circular gagging health professionals and hospital managements around Papua New Guinea from making public statements has drawn the ire of the national secretary of the Doctors Association.

Dr Sam Yockopua (pictured) has described the circular as a dictatorial attempt to intimidate and suppress health workers.

This is political propaganda meant to mislead and shut people who are speaking out about a bureaucracy that is not working, he said.

The circular - issued by health minister Sir Puka Temu on 15 August - said that recent information relating to health functions had been distorted and disseminated and that this created fear and confusion in the community.

The health minister also issued broad ranging orders stopping health professionals at all levels from talking to the media.

I now instruct and direct that no individual health worker or chief executive officer or management and boards at all levels shall provide any information on any subject of health.to any means of media. This should only be made the office of the minister.

The health system has been the subject of controversy in recent weeks. Earlier this month, a notice issued by the Port Moresby General Hospital stating the price of snake anti-venom at K15,000 brought widespread public condemnation.

The notice was also posted on social media by doctors and medical professionals who raised their concerns about the price.

It later forced the hospital to reverse its decision and make a separate statement on the matter.

Dr Yockopua, who is chief of emergency medicine at Port Moresby General Hospital, has also gone to the media on various occasions.

In February, he put out an SOS message on Facebook calling on members of the public to donate supplies which included face masks, gloves, alcohol swabs and urine bags.

My duty as a clinician is to provide health care. I will do what I need as a doctor to do my job, he said.

If the bureaucracy is not working, we have to find an alternative system to make things work.

When I put out that SOS, within 20 to 30 minutes, the public came with medicines and consumables. We cannot be bullied by ministers.

The Stoddart Avenue Community Garden has kept us freakishly busy this year, but probably for all of the right reasons.  Until last week, weve had lots or rain and were about to enter the driest period of the year.   The rain has even kept down most of the bugs.  Weve only been above 90 degrees two or three times this summer, so weve been able to spend more time at the Garden without fainting or literally wilting away.  The temperatures finally stayed above 80 for a couple of weeks this month, which caused almost all of our tomatoes to ripen simultaneously.  My last three pantry/shelter donations have been above 50 pounds and two of them were almost 70 pounds (between the corn and tomatoes).  Yesterday, we were again the lucky beneficiaries of The Ohio State Universitys Pay-It-Forward Program which sent us 30 hardworking and dedicated college students who helped us move the needle forward on our 2017 capital improvement project, clean up our weedy alley, water our food pantry plots and a few flower beds, tidy the Block Watch lot across the street and find a new bee hive, weed the tomato bed next door at Kimball Farms and pick up almost 20 bags of litter in a four block area around the Garden.  This all went relatively smoothly because I had  LOTS of help from Sabrina, Ke...

"Stress and the Brain" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"Stress and the Brain"
by Deepak Chopra

"The human body responds to stress with a powerful fight-or-flight reaction. Hormone surge through the body, causing the heart to pump faster and sending extra supplies of energy into the bloodstream. For much of human history, this emergency response system was useful: It enabled people to survive immediate physical threats, like an attack from a wild animal. But today, the stress in most people's lives comes from the more psychological and seemingly endless pressures of modern life. Daily challenges like a long commute or a difficult boss can turn on the stress hormones - and because these conditions don't go away, the hormones don't shut off.  Instead of helping you survive, this kind of stress response can actually make you sick.

Chronic stress can harm the body in several ways. The stress hormone cortisol, for instance, has been linked to an increase in fat around organs, known as visceral fat. The accumulation of visceral fat is dangerous, since these fat cells actively secrete hormones that can disrupt the functioning of the liver, pancreas and brain, causing problems such as insulin resistance, inflammation and metabolic syndrome. Chronic exposure to other stress hormones can also weaken the immune system and even change the structure of chromosomes.

How Stress Affects the Brain: Recent research suggests that chronic stress takes a toll on the brain, too. Studies on mice show that stress-related hormones alter physical structures in the brain in ways that could affect memory, learning and mood. Some of these changes involve dendrites - tiny branch-like structures on nerve cells that send and receive signals. Several studies have shown that stress hormones can shrink dendrites and, as a result, information doesn't get relayed across nerve cells. When the cell damage occurs in a part of the brain called the hippocampus, it can impact memory and learning.

'Auto-anti-Semitism!' Naftali Bennett declares war on Jewish self-hatred "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett could be said to have made a genius triple breakthrough in the fields of psychology, psychiatry and sociology, coining a new term: "auto-anti-Semitism." "Auto-anti-Semitism is a social-psychological phenomenon in which a Jew develops obsessive contempt and hostility towards Jewish tradition, customs, and observant Jews." He wrote that on Friday, as cited by the religious-nationalist settler-outlet Israel National News, in response to criticism from leftwing organizations that "Jewish content is permeating more and more into the education system". Actually, Bennett is simply calling secular Jews "self-haters." But he found a new term to cloak this notion with. What a novel term. Such invention can only come from the Jewish-home-grown genius of such 'Jewish Home' party politicians as Bennett. His party comrade, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked is not too bad either, with her genocide advocacies, with the "little snakes" metaphor for Palestinian children. But you have to hand it to Bennnett - whether it's comparing Palestinians to "shrapnel in the butt" or saying he "killed lots of Arabs and there's no problem with that", he really drives his point through. And now he's really developing his terminology, it's becoming refined: "auto-anti-Semitism."

The Structure of Power in American Society "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Notes On The Junta, An Unnecessary Land-Corridor And A Regular Russian Maneuver 

According to a 1950s political theory The Structure of Power in American Society is mainly build on three elite groups, the high military, the corporation executives and the political directorate. (The "political directorate" can best be described as the bureaucracy, the CIA and their proxies within Congress.)
On election day I noted that only the military had supported The Not-Hillary President. The corporate and executive corners of the triangle had pushed for Hillary Clinton and continued to do so even after Trump had won. (Only recently did the "collusion with Russia" nonsense suddenly die down.) I wrote:
The military will demand its due beyond the three generals now in Trump's cabinet.
That turned out to be right. A military junta is now ruling the United States:
Inside the White House, meanwhile, generals manage Trumps hour-by-hour interactions and whisper in his ear and those whispers, as with the decision this week to expand U.S. military operations in Afghanistan, often become policy.At the core of Trumps circle is a seasoned trio of generals with experience as battlefield commanders: White House Chief of Staff John F. Kelly, Defense Secretary Jim Mattis and national security adviser H.R. McMaster. The three men have carefully cultivated personal relationships with the president and gained his trust.

Adulting and the disappearance of the American grown-up "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The term 'arrested development' comes to mind when pondering the all too often ludicrous behavior of modern adults. It is used to describe people who are stuck in a childlike level of psychological development, unable to grow beyond the behaviors, attitudes and dependencies that mark the pre-adulthood stage of life. Something is holding them back, or something is preventing them from moving forward. The esteemed author and scholar of mythology, Joseph Campbell, reminds us that in cultures from around the world, the journey from adolescence to adulthood is a big deal, historically marked with ceremony and rites of passage. In this, a young person must confront their greatest fears, overcome them, then integrate themselves into the world as a newly established co-creator, abandoning the roles of dependent and victim. "The boys are brought up to be in fear of the masks that the men wear in their rituals. These are the gods. These are re the personification of the power and the structure of society. The boy, when he gets to be more than his mother can handle, the men come in with their masks, and they grab the kid, and he thinks he's been taken by the Gods. The mask represents the power that is shaping the society and that has shaped our world, and now you are a representative of that power." - Joseph Campbell

September In Your Patch "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


September is a fantastic time to be alive for us gardeners! The chill is almost gone from the mornings, and the afternoons are getting longer. Blossoms are bursting and you can smell spring in the air wherever you go. If you have been hibernating through winter now is the time to get out and into it. Read on for some fabulous September gardening advice for your area.

Improve Your Soil
Prepare your Yummy Yard for spring planting by improving your soil. Lightly dig over the soil popping in plenty of organic matter including top-notch compost and well rotted manure. Dont forget to mulch the beds with a straw mulch. This bed will be awesome come planting time and you will have the greatest Yummy Yard in the street!

Try some colour
Why not try some lovely colour in your patch as well like nasturtium, snapdragons, phlox, petunias, marigolds (French) and celosia. They are great at attracting pollinators and beneficial insects to your patch, and they look fantastic as well. Now is the time to plant some sunflower seeds. Find a sunny spot where you would like to see some happy sunflowers later in the year and plant the seeds to double the depth of the seed. Cover lightly with dirt and wait theyll be popping their heads up in no time!

Citrus Gall Wasp
Check your citrus trees for gall wasp and remove affected sections by pruning well below the gall. Dont compost this or put it in the green waste bin.  Its a good idea to cut through the gall to expose the larvae to air which they hate before putting it in a bag and popping in the rubbish bin.  Or you could soak the galls in water for a week or two or burn them (if your local Council permits).

Other things you can do are to hang sticky yellow traps on the tree in mid-August as they attract and trap the emerging adults, but make sure you take the traps down by November as they also kill beneficial insects.

Do not use a fertiliser that is high in nitrogen, as this promotes soft growth which provides ideal conditions for the wasp.  Use a balanced fertiliser or compost.

A biological form of control introducing wasps that prey on citrus gall wasp is used in orchards and home gardens. Megastigmus brevivalvus and Megastigmus trisulcus are natural enemies of citrus gall wasp. They lay their eggs inside the eggs of the citrus gall wasp and when their eggs hatch they destroy the host.

Megastigus brevivalvus is sold to home gardeners in some states, but it is only available for a two-week window around October/November. If you are able to g...

Sources on the ground claimed to the SOHR that the US-led operation was backed from artillery fire by the Syrian Democratic Forces.

Is Yellen's time at Fed up after her recent pro-regulation speech? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Was Fed Chairwoman Janet Yellen's Friday speech in Jackson Hole her swan song? Some Fed watchers think that might turn out to be the case. Yellen used her high-profile podium to give a robust defense of the regulations put in place under the Obama administration in the aftermath of the financial crisis. She disagreed with the position of President Donald Trump and Congressional Republicans that the regulatory burden is strangling lending and has hamstrung the economy. "Yellen's decision to defend core regulations will strengthen the hands of those within the administration who do not favor her reappointment and likely reduces her chances of gaining a second term as chair," said Krishna Guha, a former senior Fed staffer and now vice-chairman of Evercore ISI.

"I made my decision based on what I thought was right from a political and humanitarian standpoint,"she said and described the 2015 refugee crisis as one of "extraordinary situations" that just "happen every once in a while in a country's history." Comment: Refugee crises involving millions of people don't just 'happen every once in a while' as Merkel is claiming, with this one being the direct result of proxy warfare by NATO, of which Germany is a member, in the middle east.

NYT "bestseller" pulled from list over dubious sales data "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A novel called "Handbook for Mortals" had a very brief reign at the top of a New York Times best-seller list. The paper confirmed Friday that it had pulled Lani Sarem's book from its young adult hardcover list for Sept. 3 because of "inconsistencies" in the reporting of sales. The announcement came after online complaints that "Handbook for Mortals" had benefitted from so-called "bulk sales," when hundreds or thousands of copies are ordered by a single buyer. On Twitter, young adult author Phil Stamper and others had questioned how a book they knew little about could reach No. 1 on the Times list. "After investigating the inconsistencies in the most recent reporting cycle, we decided that the sales for 'Handbook for Mortals' did not meet our criteria for inclusion," the Times said in a statement issued through communications director Jordan Cohen. "We've issued an updated 'Young Adult Hardcover' list for September 3, 2017, which does not include that title."

Turkey 'searching for ways to reconcile with Assad' amid Idlib situation "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Lately, Turkey has been actively engaged in contacts with regional states and allies, discussing the situation in Syria. Leading political observer Zeynep Grcanl, from the Szc newspaper told Sputnik Turkey that the attempt to alter foreign policy strategy and seeking a thaw with Damascus could be behind Ankara's recent diplomatic efforts. "Currently, perhaps the most significant steps have been made in the country's [Turkey's] foreign policy in terms of departing from the traditional 16-year political strategy of the ruling the Justice and Development Party (AKP). The AKP leadership constantly said that 'without the knowledge of Turkey, even a bird should not fly in the region'. Proceeding from such rhetoric, Ankara has been building its own line of conduct toward Syria and Iraq for a long period of time. Steps were taken to create a situation in the region that was in the interests of Ankara. However, now we are witnessing that Turkey is gradually giving up this strategy, the Turkish authorities are making certain concessions," Zeynep Grcanl told Sputnik Turkey.

Saudi Arabia plans for new foreign policy: Quit Yemen, help Syria, go after Iran, blame outgoing King Salman "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Saudi Arabia continues with its preparations for King Salmane's abdication and for his replacement by his son, Prince Mohammed. First: Saudi Arabia is getting ready to withdraw from Yemen. Although Prince Mohammed is at the origin of the conflict, he has now understood that that he just cannot win this battle, and could let the responsibility of this disastrous adventure flow back to his father, King Salmane. This approach is confirmed by emails exchanged between the US ambassador Martin Indyk and the United Arab Emirates ambassador. These e mails were published by Middle East Eye [1]. Second: Saudi Arabia would stop championing the Sunnis against the Shiites and would start, once again, championing the Arabs against the Persians. This would enable Riyadh to find a way out of the civil war which is currently taking place across the region of Qatif, where the Saudi Shiite populations have risen up [2]. Yet again, it is prince Mohamed with his proposal to execute the Opposition's leader, Sheikh El-Nimr, who raised this revolt. But a change of king would excuse the errors of the past [3]. This thinking seems confirmed by the official receptions for the Iraqi Shiite leader Moqtada Sadr in Riyadh [4] and the Saudi the charg d'affaires, Walid Boukhari, in Lebanon, by the Vice President of the Shiite Superior Council, Sheikh Abdel Amir Kabalan. Following through with this logic, Saudi Arabia has just reopened the border posts of Arar and Jumaima with Iraq, posts which have been closed for more than thirty years.

How Will Human-Forced Climate Change Affect the Pacific Northwest? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It is an issue of extreme interest to almost everyone:  how will human-forced climate change affect our region?  

This blog will review what I believe is the state-of-the-science, one that will avoid hype or politicization of the issue.  One based on peer-reviewed publications and the best models we have available.  And an analysis that will be honest about what we don't know and the uncertainties.

What Climate Changes Have Occurred During the Past Decades in the Pacific Northwest?

Mankind has already changed the surface climate in our region in profound ways. We have massively irrigated parts of eastern Washington, reducing summer temperatures there (2-5F).   A high resolution satellite image illustrates the vast irrigated areas in the Columbia Basin.


We have cut down the trees in western Washington, replacing them with concrete and buildings, substantially warming the surface (as much as 5-10F, see satellite based temperatures below). Thus, there are urban heat islands in our built up area, with enhanced local temperatures.


We have created large farms in eastern WA, tearing off the protective surface vegetation, resulting in dust storms.  And our mismanagement of eastern Washington forests have resulted in increasing large fires and major smoke outbreaks.

There is more, but the message is clear: human activities have profoundly changed our surface climate in limited areas, without even talking about greenhouse gases in the atmosphere.

What do surface weather observations show, regarding changes in temperature and precipitation over our region during the past decades?  Is there a trend?

Here are plots of NOAA/NWS average temperatures over Washington State for January through June for the past 50 years from their climate division data set (I chose a half year so 2017 could be available). For temperature, there was a big...

Is The Republican Party Committing Suicide? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Brent Bozell For Breitbart

The Grand Old Party is about to commit suicide.

All this talk about Trump this, and Trump that, masks a far bigger political controversy. The Republican Party leadership in Washington, D.C., has fundamentally betrayed its constituents and they are about to learn that theyve been double-crossed for years.

Every Republican candidates stock speech sounds the same, the thunderous roar about a government out of control, federal spending out of control (insert charts and graphs and why, if you stack hundred dollar bills, they will reach the edge of the universe), federal taxes out of control (insert comparisons to socialist countries), the federal bureaucracy out of control (insert metaphors about chains, yokes, and the like), the family shattered with federal funding of abortion a crime against humanity (watch for it there! The heart-wrenching sob), and our military is emasculated.

Two more items were added to the menu, courtesy of Obama. Obamacare Will Be Repealed! and Illegal Immigration Will Not Stand!

In 2009, the Democrats controlled everything, partly due to the Republicans cowardice on Capitol Hill, and in part because of some of the most inept candidates and campaigns America has seen in years. The Obama folks could have played it safe but went for socialist gold, using the power of the legislative and the executive branches (and later the judiciary, thank you Justice Roberts) to advance their agenda.

That included federal spending on a level unmatched in human history resulting ultimately in a $19 trillion in debt we simply cannot pay, and with so many tens of trillions of dollars in unfunded liabilities that infinity is not far behind. One seventh of the economy was confiscated by the federal government with the passage of Obamacare. Our national borders were declared open and discussions over our national sovereignty closed. And to top it off, the Democrats all but declared themselves above the law.

The GOP harrumphed that this would not stand, by God! If only if only America would vote them into the majority.

In 2009, the Tea Party was born. The Grand Old Party was rejuvenated. Happy days were here again.

Just one year later, the Republicans captured the House, and with that, the power of the purse. They now had the authority to stop the insane spending on so many obnoxious and wholly unnecessary ventures. They could end Obamacare simply by not funding it.

Instead, under the leadership of John Boehner, it did absolutely nothing. Why, if only we had the Senate! Then we could take on the President!

Toxic Metal: The Health Dangers of Tin "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Toxic Metal: The Health Dangers of Tin | tin-can | General Health Special Interests Toxins

When most people think about tin, they imagine tin cans, tin foil, and maybe even Rin Tin Tin. Tin is a naturally occurring metal of a familiar silver color. Tin is resistant to corrosion and often used as a coating for other metals such as steel. The most common example is the use of tin to line the insides of beverage cans and food containers.Tin has other metallurgic application- when it is alloyed with copper, bronze is the result. If youve ever seen pewter figurines or collectibles, know that they can contain up to 90% tin. Tin is a component of solder- a regular tool for plumbing applications and electrical circuits. If you check your toothpaste label you are likely to notice the ingredient stannous fluoride which is a tin compound. Despite, or in light of, this frequency of exposure, concerns have been raised about the safety of tin and research has shown that tin can negatively impact human health.

Exposure to Tin

Food containers that contain tin usually have a very fine layer of lacquer applied to prevent the tin from leeching into your food or drink. Unfortunately, acidic foods may compromise that protective film. If you eat seafood, be mindful of its origin as tin has been found in seafood caught off certain costal waters. Household products like toothpaste and soap may have tin compounds added.

Manufacturing and industrial facilities are often guilty of releasing toxic metals like tin into the environment. This not only affects workers, but people who live in the vicinity too (and really, all of us). High concentrations of tin are usually found in air and soil samples in and around areas where hazardous waste is present. This can present groundwater contamination concerns.

Exposure to tin is often a byproduct of modern society. Taiwan, for example, has been changing from an agricultural society to an industrial society over the past 40 years. Due to this industrial progression, incidence of occupational...

*Love, Africa* "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The author is Jeffrey Gettleman, the subtitle is A Memoir of Romance, War, and Survival, and this travel romance of East Africa has taken a beating on Twitter and elsewhere, for its apparently neo-colonial approach.  I bought the book, wondering if I might find a contrarian take to offer.  Ive only browsed it, but here was one random passage I ran across, noting the scene will culminate in the two making out (and perhaps intercourse?):

As my eye traveled across the faces, I kept coming back to the same one.  It belonged to a girl with high cheekbones, wide-set eyes, heavy eyelids and dark hair; her features looked Eurasian, maybe even Eskimo.  She was wearing a red dress that showed off her back; she was lithe and freckly.  As she danced, the blacks of her eyes shone.  There was something in them that I had seen before.  She seemed deeply, freely happy, like those kids on Lake Malawi.  I could tell she really dug dancing.

Now, I am not here to offer him a deserved bad writing award, nor to shame him, but still I consider this data and I am puzzling over what this data means.  In a mere minute of browsing, I found several similar passages, and with a few more minutes they seemed to multiply endlessly.  Nor was it easy to stumble across pages with lots of information about Africa on them.  And yet he is a Pulitzer winner and a foreign correspondent for The New York Times, East Africa Bureau Chief for a decade.

But exactly which views do I need to revise?  The NYT writers and journalists I have met are uniformly impressive.  It is not easy to win a Pulitzer Prize.

Here is a review from Laura Seay, she is harsh but it seems to me probably fair.  Is Derek Parfit right about the self after all?  At the very least, my opinion of the political correctness scolds went up a bit today.  And I once again ask myself whether I should spend more or less time writing negative reviews of books (mostly I dont, though this weeks reading was pretty meh).

Please advise.

Congress Quietly Passed A Bill Allowing Warrantless Searches Of HomesOnly 1% Opposed It "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Rachel Blevins via The Free Thought Project

A major red flag was buried in the text of a bill with a seemingly harmless title.

A bill that will allow homes to be searched without a warrant was passed with overwhelming support by the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Trumpand it happened with no media coverage and very little fanfare.

On the surface, House Joint Resolution 76 looks harmless. The title of the bill claims that its purpose is Granting the consent and approval of Congress for the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia to enter into a compact relating to the establishment of the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission.

Whereas the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, an interstate compact agency of the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the State of Maryland, provides transportation services to millions of people each year, the safety of whom is paramount; Whereas an effective and safe Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority system is essential to the commerce and prosperity of the National Capital region; Whereas the Tri-State Oversight Committee, created by a memorandum of understanding amongst these 3 jurisdictions, has provided safety oversight of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

The proposal for a safety commission to act as a wing of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority may sound logical, when its power includes thing such as the ability to Adopt, revise, and distribute a written State Safety Oversight Program and to Review, approve, oversee, and enforce the adoption and implementation of WMATAs Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan.

However, there is one major red flag buried within the text of the bill that stems from the list of powers given to the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission, and it violates one of the basic t...

The two men were then dragged out of the vehicle and lynched. The driver of the vehicle escaped," said senior West Bengal police official Anuj Sharma. It was too early to say whether the murders were motivated by religion or suspicions the men were mistreating the cows, police added.

Mueller probe subpoenas grand jury testimony from PR execs who worked with Manafort "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Special Counsel Robert Mueller issued grand jury subpoenas in recent days seeking testimony from public relations executives who worked on an international campaign organized by Paul Manafort, people directly familiar with the matter told NBC News. This is the first public indication that Mueller's investigation is beginning to compel witness testimony before the grand jury - a significant milestone in an inquiry that is examining the conduct of President Donald Trump and his son-in-law and senior adviser, Jared Kushner, among others. It is also further indication that Manafort, Trump's onetime campaign chairman, could be in serious legal jeopardy. According to one executive whose firm received a subpoena, Mueller's team is closely examining the lobbying campaign, which ran between 2012 and 2014. Some of the firms involved in the campaign received subpoenas for documents weeks ago, the executive said, and now the Mueller team is seeking testimony. "We think they are trying to figure out, was this a legitimate project?" the executive said. "From our perspective it was - we did a lot of work. We took it seriously."

Hurricane Harvey Will Render Some Parts Of Texas Uninhabitable For An Extended Period Of Time "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Do you remember what Hurricane Katrina did to New Orleans?  Well, now we are watching the same thing happen to southeast Texas.  On Friday, Hurricane Harvey made landfall as a category 4 hurricane.  It is the first hurricane to make landfall in the United States in 12 years, and it is the most powerful storm to hit the state of Texas in at least 50 years.  One meteorologist is saying that what we are witnessing is worse than the worst-case scenario for Houston, and another stated that this storm could easily be one of the worst flooding disasters in U.S. history.

It would be difficult to overstate the devastation in the Houston area at this moment.  Hurricane Harvey has ripped roofs off of homes, turned vehicles over and snapped thousands of trees.  Thousands have been rescued from their homes and vehicles, and it is being reported that so far five people have died.  In fact, one womans dead body was actually spotted floating down the street.

According to the National Weather Service, over 24 inches of rain fell in Houston in just a 24 hour period.  More rain continues to fall in southeast Texas, and meteorologists are running out of adjectives to describe the nightmare that is currently unfolding

As A Percentage Of Income, You Pay More Taxes Than The Ultra-Rich, And Its Getting Worse: Heres Proof "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It should be old news to almost everyone at this point. The rich are getting richer and the poor are getting, well shafted. Thats not an argument from an envious standpoint, although Ill admit, the value of my car does rise and fall on the volume of gas in the tank. It has to do with the fact that not only has the myth of equal access to opportunity been debunked a thousand times over, but that the one area in which we could level the playing field taxation is indisputably tilted in favor of the already-wealthy.

Even in countries with higher established taxation, such as the United Kingdom, we see it playing out. Taxes are high there ostensibly to pay for the general welfare of the country (think universal healthcare), but the poors share of that contribution has been steadily growing under more and more conservative leadership.

In the United States, the picture is even bleaker. Some have recognized it. Bernie Sanders said the words millionaires and billionaires during his campaign for President more times than any one person in history has in so short a span. He was attacking just what we examine here: Income inequality and the worsening of it through taxation.

According to a new paper by John Hatgioannides of the Cass business school, Marika Karanassou of Queen Mary University and Hector Sala of the Universitat Autnoma de Barcelona and IZA in Bonn, the past 40 years that is to say, in the era immediately preceding and since the inception of Reaganomics have been very kind to those at the very top of the income spectrum. This is the top one-tenth of one percent that Sanders so frequently referenced. This class has seen their incomes increase, as well as their share of total wealth, far faster than any other economic circle.

The history gap: Who will remember PNGs saints and sinners? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sil Bolkin at Croc PrizePHIL FITZPATRICK

TUMBY BAY - Five years ago I worked closely with Kela Kapkora Sil Bolkin when he was finalising the chapters of his landmark book about one of the tribal diaspora in Simbu, The Flight of Galkope.

Sil (pictured) had trekked throughout his ancestral lands speaking to all sorts of people, especially those in the mens houses, about their history and writing it down.

He then contrasted and correlated those recorded oral histories with the short and incomplete written histories of the modern era to produce a marvellous book.

It contained what Dr Bill Standish called stories that link Galkope clans to those from Gembogl to Gumine and Kup to Koge and show Chimbu mens thinking from ancestral times to troubled life in the 21st century.

What Sil was doing during his arduous treks was recording what is known in the trade as oral history.

In most cases an oral history is not a stand-alone record. It is typically a useful supplementary method of filling in historical gaps in written history, especially if a particular aspect requires elucidating and other data is not available.

It is also a useful method of recording the points of view of groups that otherwise might be ignored in conventional histories.

Unfortunately in Papua New Guinea there is a real dearth of written history, particularly since independence.

In most cases the only available history is in an oral form.

This means, of course, that history is a fragile resource. As people die, much of history is lost.

What replaces it is a mishmash of vaguely remembered detail (usually second or third hand), misinterpreted or dubious data, biased opinion, fabrication and, in some cases, outright lies motivated by vested interests.

Examples of manipulated oral histories occur in landowner negotiations with resource companies.

Ive been involved in indigenous heritage work since 1975. It is a loosely defined discipline that combines anthropology, archaeology and history among other things. Its most familiar form in Papua New Guinea is social mapping.

In that time I have developed a deep distrust of oral history. This i...

The ACLU documented the incident two weeks ago, and the man has now been arrested in connection with it.

A man attending the white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Virginia, earlier this month fired his gun in the direction of a black counterprotester who was holding a torch, and police in their vicinity did not seem to respond.

As seen in the footage below, a man in a blue sleeveless shirt, a green vest and a bandana on his head pulls out a gun and aims it at a counterprotester, who is off camera and appears to be holding a makeshift lit torch. The first man appears to yell a racial slur at the black man, then fires the gun toward the ground in the direction of the counterprotesters.

The shooter then leaves the scene by joining a line of white supremacist protesters and walking past law enforcement officers, who were standing behind metal barricades about 10 feet away.

From Charlottesville to Boston, America is Falling Apart at the Seams | divide-and-conquer | Sleuth Journal Society Special Interests US News

By: Brandon Turbeville, Activist Post

As America once again picks up the rubble from one of its regularly scheduled race riots, the hatred and anger felt by the participants is spreading throughout the country. Black/White Left/Right division is now at one of the highest levels in recent years, again drawing Presidential commentary and endless coverage in the mainstream corporate press.

Social media is on fire with every inflammatory opinion one can imagine. All social ills are being placed on the shoulders of whites, blacks, Democrats, Republicans, and people long dead. Today, lines are being drawn between racial groups, political identities, and genders; and the average person doesnt have a say in the matter, those lines are being drawn for them. At times, they are drawn by the media, other times by radical fanatics in the street hurling insults, fists, and feces at anyone who dares disagree or even dares not to agree with them. They are also drawn by the average American themselves, glued to their television screens and subjected to the other dealing verbal abuse and violence on the us.

Everyone is either denouncing white supremacy, white racism, and Nazis; or they are bashing Commies, blacks, and anyone on the left. Everyone is joining their team and preparing for battle, as if some racial or ideological coup will result in the betterment of their situation. Keyboard commandos are typing away that if the us can rid ourselves of the other we will somehow reach a new utopia. Fanatical ideologues from both the left and the right are in the streets preaching the same message.

Donald Trump has a role to play in this but its not what you think. Trump, whatever he may be, has been linked with white supremacy, white nationalism, and general racism when nothing in his campaign or his presidency has ever suggested that this is the case (except, perhaps, for the nomination of Jeff Sessions who is now going after Nazis when he himself was once considered too racist for 80s Kansas Republicans). The left in America immediately linked Trump with the Unite the Right Activists and demanded that he condemn only the righ...

What is Internal Conflict?

Internal conflict is the experience of having opposing psychological beliefs, desires, impulses or feelings. In the field of psychology, internal conflict is often referred to as cognitive dissonance, which is a term that refers to holding conflicting and inconsistent thoughts, beliefs, and attitudes. This mental struggle can occur at any point in life over any topic such as relationships, work commitments, religious beliefs, moral standpoints, and social ideologies.

EU deadline passes for Poland to comply on court reforms "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP/File | Protestors criticized a controversial reform of the Supreme Court Polish lawmakers adopted in July despite the threat of unprecedented EU sanctions
BRUSSELS (AFP)  Poland has missed an EU deadline to respond to concerns over controversial court reforms by the rightwing government, which Brussels fears will erode judicial independence, a Brussels spokesman said Sunday.On July 26, the European Commission gave Warsaw a month to end what it considers a systemic threat to the rule of law and inform the EU executive branch of measures taken to modify the reforms.

As far as I am aware, we have still not received a response, a commission spokesman told AFP.

The EU executive will meet Monday to consider the issue, he added.

The Polish foreign ministry, for its part, told AFP that as the deadline falls on a holiday, we consider that it ends on the first working day after that.

The ministry later added that it would send its response on Monday.

Tensions between Warsaw and the EU have been growing over what Brussels sees as a growing threat, not just to democratic standards in Poland but across the 28-nation bloc.

It could eventually lead to a case against Poland before the blocs highest court, the European Court of Justice, and possibly a fine.

The commission has said the threat to judicial independence comes from the Polish justice minister getting discretionary power to prolong the mandate of judges who have reached retirement age as well as to dismiss and appoint court presidents.

Other concerns, it said, include discrimination on the basis of gender by setting the retirement age at 60 for female judges and at 65 for their male counterparts.

The legal overhauls have triggered mass street protests in Poland and raised fears about the rule of law in one of the EUs leading former communist states in the east.

Nuclear option

Brussels and Warsaw have been at loggerheads ever since Polands governing PiS party announced reforms to the countrys constitutional court after coming to power in late 2015.

European Commission First Vice President Frans Timmermans has warned that the commission is ready to immediately trigger the EUs never-used Article 7 procedure a so-called nuclear option that can freeze a countrys right to vote in meetings of EU ministers if Supreme Court justices....

Amid warnings of a new financial crash, Fed Chairwoman promotes illusions at Jackson Hole conference "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Nick Beams
26 August 2017

Yesterdays speech by Federal Reserve chairwoman Janet Yellen to the conclave of central bankers at Jackson Hole, Wyoming recalled events at the gathering 12 years ago. At that meeting, the growing signs of the devastating financial crisis that was to strike in 2008 were completely ignored. That was likewise the situation at this years meeting, held under conditions where the surge in stock markets is bringing warnings of a major collapse.

The 2005 meeting was organised as a celebration of the achievements of the Maestro, Fed chief Alan Greenspan, whose policies, it was claimed, had brought a new era of prosperity to the global economy. Only one discordant note was sounded in remarks by the then-International Monetary Fund economist Raghuram Rajan, who warned that easy money might be creating the conditions for a financial crisis. But he was firmly put in his place.

This years address by Yellen is widely expected to be her last as Fed chairwoman, as her current term expires in February next year and President Trump, who decides on the position, has denounced her in the past.

The circumstances of this years conclave are, of course, very different from those of 12 years ago, coming as they do after the eruption of the most serious financial crisis since the Great Depression of the 1930s. Nonetheless, there are similarities betwee...

A Dog Is Re-Elected Mayor for a Third Term, Proving Politicians Are Useless "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Source: The Anti Media

As millions of Americans struggle to decide whether to elect a volatile narcissist or a calculated warmongering criminal as their next leader, one Minnesota town is doing politics right they just re-elected a dog to his third term as mayor.

Duke, a nine-year-old Great Pyrenees, was first elected mayor of Cormorant, Minnesota in 2014. The first time he won, it was by accident. The small town of just over 1,000 people held an election in which residents could pay $1 to vote. Duke won the race with twelve write-in votes and was treated to an official inauguration.

The towns voters were evidently happy with the 2014 fluke. Duke has been re-elected twice, most recently at the end of August.

His main role has been to promote a sense of community in the township. He was recently featured in a series of billboards promoting Cormorant.

I dont know who would run against him, because hes done such great things for the community, Karen Nelson, a resident of Cormorant told local ABC affiliate WDAY, before the election.

Everybody voted for Duke, except for one vote for his girlfriend, Lassie, Dukes owner David Rick said after Duke won.

Though Dukes re-election is particularly comical in an election year rife with unpopular candidates and marred by animosity, derision, and deceit, the towns decision to elect and keep a dog in office has profound implications.

"Those of you whove read me for many years will have undoubtedly noticed a major transformation in the tone and content of my writing over the course of 2017.

Lebanese Army Defeats ISIS, Bodies Likely Belonging to Kidnapped Soldiers Found "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Lebanese Army declared a cease-fire with the Islamic State earlier this morning at 7AM and stated that the truce had been intended to allow negotiations for the recovery of its captive troops. Later on, the Lebanese Army & General Security declared that eight bodies likely belonging to the soldiers abducted by ISIS in 2014 were found and that theyre waiting for DNA tests for the final confirmation.

General Security stated that This file has been closed with a dark chapter and we have had unconfirmed information on the fate of the captive troops since mid-February 2015, when addressing the families of the soldiers. He said hes almost certain the bodies belong to the captive troops.

Its a tragic end for the families and all of us yet I believe they deserve how their soldiers were kidnapped and under which circumstances, and why the authorities took that long to intervene and try to rescue them. I was listening to General Chamel Roukoz the other day and he was saying they were only 5Km away from the soldiers location yet no action was taken.

Why didnt we negotiate with ISIS over the soldiers this time? Were they aware the soldiers had been killed two years ago? Why not inform the families then? Why delay the battle against Daesh till then?

Were all happy that our brave army destroys Daesh but its hard to enjoy this triumph knowing our captive troops were found killed.

GORKA: Trumps MAGA Agenda Being Systematically Undermined Within the White House (AUDIO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sebastian Gorka resigned as Deputy Assistant to President Trump on Friday.

Conservative radio host Steve Malzberg spoke with Sebastian Gorka on Saturday and Dr. Gorka told him that Trump is surrounded by people who are undermining his MAGA agenda.

Steve Malzberg opened the segment by asking Dr. Gorka why he decided to leave the White House.

We came in on a message that was encapsulated in making American great again. I supported the President from July of 2015 and the people that made that victory possible around the President have been systematically undermined, many of them on the National Security Council have been fired or shut out and the agenda is losing steam within the building, Dr. Gorka said.

Dr. Gorka said that President Trump is still committed to the MAGA agenda, but for people like him and Steve Bannon, they can be more effective on the outside.

Dr. Gorka also expressed his disappointment about President Trumps speech on Afghanistan.

I saw the text for the speech the President gave on Afghanistan and thats when I realized that the anti-MAGA clique is winning. No mention of radical Islamic terrorism, no mention of even radical Islam, so I decided its time to do the best I can for the President as a private citizen outside of the building and that is what Im going to do, Dr. Gorka explained.

Many people were disappointed that President Trump didnt mention Islamic terrorism during his speech about his strategy in Afghanistan.

The Chronovisor A Secret Device Used by the Vatican to Look into the Future and Past "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ancient Code| The Chronovisor A Secret Device Used by the Vatican to Look into the Future and Past

According to numerous reports and stories that have been published through the years, among the many alleged secrets the Vatican has, there is a device called the Chronovisor. The device enables its user to observe future as well as past events.  Many believe this device is one of the greatest guarded secrets humanity has ever had.

Some even believe it is a crucial tool which has allowed the Vatican to preserve its influence and power through the years.

Ever since H. G. Wells composed his novel The Time Machine many people have been left fascinated by the idea of time travel. Even Theoretical Physics dreams of the possibility of making it work one day. Everything related to time travel today is related to science fiction, or so it seems at least. Interestingly, on May 2, 1972, an Italian newspaper shocked the world when they published an article with a provoking headline: A machine that photographs the past has finally been invented.

The news article indicated that dozens of scientists created an artifact that allowed them to photograph the past, and even witness important historical accounts directly connected with Jesus Christ.

The alleged device which according to many is nothing more than science fiction was built in the 1950s by a team of scientists led by Father Pellegrino Maria Ernetti, an Italian physicist who eventually became a priest.

It is believed that the team received important help from Nobel laureate Enrico Fermi and famous rocket scientist Wernher von Braun.

WATCH: Cops Do Nothing as White Supremacist Fires Gun at Black People, Walks Away "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 

Source: The Free Thought Project By: Matt Agorist

Charlottesville, VA As conspiracy theories about the deadly protests in Charlottesville earlier this month abound, a new video released by the ACLU adds some serious credence to some of these claims. In the video, we see a man wearing a bullet proof vest pull out a pistol in front of dozens of police officers, fire off a round and not a single cop budged.

Hey, nigger! the crazed racist says right before he fires his gun. Whether he was firing at a specific person or simply trying to terrorize the crowd was unclear. He appeared to be firing in the direction of Corey Long who was in an altercation with another group of people and had made a makeshift flame thrower with an aerosol can. However, what was entirely clear was the reaction from policethere wasnt one.

We all heard it and ran I know damn well they heard it, said Rosia Parker, a community activist in Charlottesville when speaking about the police. They never moved.

The man who fired the shot was never arrested that day. In fact, not until two weeks later did police act. On Saturday, Richard W. Preston, 52, was arrested and charged with discharging a firearm within 1,000 feet of a school during the so-called Unite The Right rally on Aug. 12. He is in custody in Towson, Maryland.

Now, many people are wondering why police never acted when the shooting originally happened.

As the NY Times reports, residents are still demanding to know why officers did not act in real time as heavily armed people fought and a car sped toward a crowd, killing a woman. So stark was the police failure to intervene, many participants in the protest and counterprotests believe it was by design.

Auto-anti-Semitism! Naftali Bennett declares war on Jewish self-hatred in Israel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Israeli Education Minister Naftali Bennett could be said to have made a genius triple breakthrough in the fields of psychology, psychiatry and sociology, coining a new term: auto-anti-Semitism.  

Auto-anti-Semitism is a social-psychological phenomenon in which a Jew develops obsessive contempt and hostility towards Jewish tradition, customs, and observant Jews.

He wrote that on Friday, as cited by the religious-nationalist settler-outlet Israel National News, in response to criticism from leftwing organizations that Jewish content is permeating more and more into the education system.

Actually, Bennett is simply calling secular Jews self-haters. But he found a new term to cloak this notion with.

What a novel term. Such invention can only come from the Jewish-home-grown genius of such Jewish Home party politicians as Bennett. His party comrade, Justice Minister Ayelet Shaked is not too bad either, with her genocide advocacies, with the little snakes metaphor for Palestinian children. But you have to hand it to Bennnett whether its comparing Palestinians to shrapnel in the butt or saying he killed lots of Arabs and theres no problem with that, he really drives his point through.

And now hes really developing his terminology, its becoming refined: auto-anti-Semitism.

The background is fears among secular parents in Israel that religious messages are being insidiously inserted into the school content. Haaretz has been following this development in the past years, and last month, Allison Kaplan-Sommer wrote a piece titled. How Israeli Parents Are Fighting Jewish Missionizing in Secular Schools.

Kaplan-Sommer noted that the cities of Tel Aviv and Givatayim have announced measures aimed at raising their level of vigilance against religious influences in the mainstream Jewish school system.

In a widely discussed television report last month, secular schools held end-of-year ceremonies in which children sang of building the Third Temple in Jerusalem, laying spray-painted golden bricks to do so part of an Education Ministry directive to emphasize Jerusalem as the theme of such celebrations. Shocked parents circulated the videos on social media.

FLASHBACK: Obama Refused to Declare Texas Wildfires a Disaster for 3 Mos.- Then Joked About It "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Surely, you all remember this?

More than 1.2 million acres burnt up in the state of Texas in April 2011.

Governor Rick Perry and Republican senators called on President Obama to declare the region a disaster area.

It took Obama until July to finally recognize the fires a major disaster area. This allowed federal aid to supplement State and local recovery efforts in the area struck by wildfires during the period of April 6 to May 3, 2011.

And then shortly after he finally declared the region a disaster area Barack Obama joked about it at a Democrat fundraiser.

Barack Obama mocked Governor Rick Perry and Texas in September in a fundraiser speech to Democrats.

Obama joked about the Texas disaster in front of a group of liberal hacks.
The LA Times reported:

People in the Philippines Ask Nagging Questions on China "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By   @inquirerdotnet

 / 05:16 AM August 26, 2017

Question: What is the similarity between China and the Caloocan police?

Answer: China claimed that it had stopped reclamation work on the disputed islands in the South China Sea since 2015 (Foreign Secretary Alan Peter Cayetano supported the claim); the Caloocan police claimed that Kian delos Santos was shot and killed because he shot at them first. Both claims were belied by pictures: In Chinas case, satellite images showed its reclamation activities in late 2016; in the Caloocan case, CCTV footage showed the policemen dragging Kian off

In short, both are bare-faced liars, caught red-handed by modern-day technology.

Q: How far do Filipinos trust China vs. America?

A: The Social Weather Stations survey in September 2016 showed that Filipinos trusted America the most (+66) and China the least (-33), among the countries surveyed. The SWS also reported that since 1994, when the question was first asked, America has always showed positive ratings, its lowest being +18 and its highest +82; China has showed positive trust ratings only 7 times out of 40, and its highest trust rating was +17 (lower than Americas lowest), while its lowest was -46.

In short, Filipinos dont trust China any further than they can throw it (and China, a giant, cant be thrown very far).

Q: So why does President Duterte trust China so much and distrust America?

A: No hard evidence on which to base an answer. Communications Secretary Martin Andanar told me in an interview (you can catch it on Monday) that the President listens. Well, yes, he listened to the outraged cry against Kians murder, but he obviously hasnt listened to the Filipino distrust of China (Filipinos have dealt with Chinese since pre-Hispanic times).

All these make up background for the current issue relating to Chinas bare-faced lies or its treachery vis--vis the Philippines, which are well-documented in Supreme Court Senior Associate Justice Antonio Carpios....

Catholic Church Says Paedophiles Innocent Because Children Consented "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Source: NP

The Catholic Church and local authorities in the United Kingdom have found a way to avoid paying out settlements to victims of paedophilia and sex abuse, by claiming that the children consented.

A government agency was denying compensation to some children because it said they had consented to the abuse, even if they were of an age where they could not do so legally.

The Telegraph reports:

Lawyers who represent some of the victims have told the Sunday Telegraph that the defence is more frequently being used by private schools, religious groups and local authorities when trying to defend compensation claims.

The revelation comes after news that the Criminal Injuries Compensation Scheme, a Government agency, was denying some children compensation because it said they had consented to abuse even if they were of an age where they could not do so legally.

Siobhn Crawford, of London-based firm Bolt Burdon Kemp, one of the largest firms in the field, said the defence is normally used where a child turns 16 during the abuse.

She said the firm had dealt with ten such cases, and there had been an increase in the past two years as authorities became aware that it was an option.

For adults in a position of authority, it is illegal to have sex with a child under their care, even if the child is 16 or 17 at the time.

Anne Longfield, the Childrens Commissioner for England, said: No child ever gives their consent to being abused, and the increased use of this line of defence, although still quite rare, is worrying.

I am mesmerised with your beauty
You shine brightly like the midnight sun
Your reflection is like the moon shadows  

Your figure sparkles like the eastern star
You walk elegantly like a pacific princess
Your hair is curly like the ocean waves

Around your neck,

Daughter of the ocean
My goddess Aphrodite
And the choice of my parents
I worship you with my eyes.

Darkwood Creators Share Game on The Pirate Bay, For Those Who Can't Pay "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Submitted via IRC for TheMightyBuzzard

Acid Wizard Studio, the creators of the popular Darkwood game, have shared a copy on The Pirate Bay. The developers want to help out people who don't have the financial means to buy a legal copy of the game and also prevent them from going to unauthorized key sharing sites.

Online piracy is an issue that affects many industries, and indie game development is certainly no exception.

While some developers see piracy as an evil that needs to be rooted out as soon as possible, others are more open to the motivations behind it.

The average game fan may not have the financial means to try out all the new titles that come out every month, for example. While these people are not by any means entitled to a free copy, sometimes the human element resonates with developers.

Acid Wizard Studio, the three college friends from Poland behind the horror game Darkwood, started thinking about this when they recently received an email from a desperate young fan.

They recount how a fan, who loved the game, asked for a refund because he was worried about his parent's reaction to the cost. They realized this was not an isolated occurrence and decided to do something very unusual in the videogame industry: make a free copy available on a torrent! The story concludes:

Is fake news network CNN faking its TV ratings too? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

CNN has reacted very badly to the political rise of President Trump, promulgating fake news and presenting an echo chamber of negative commentary. Now, the struggling news channel appears to be trying to manipulate the ratings. Even if it's not the originator of the Fake News model that now largely defines the MSM, CNN has certainly perfected it. This past week, the situation seemed to rise to a shocking new level with the CNN programs that followed President Trump's prime time address to the nation on Afghanistan on Monday and his 80 minute speech Tuesday night to a campaign-style rally in Phoenix. On Tuesday, for example, CNN host Don Lemon followed Trump's speech with a live appearance by the channel's new contributor James Clapper, former director of National Intelligence in the Obama Administration. Putting it rather politely in an article on Wednesday, CNN said that Clapper:

"Supervolcano Alert!" "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

"Supervolcano Alert!"
by Robert Gore

"Thar she blows! Once every 600,000 years or so Yellowstones supervolcano erupts, making Mt. St. Helens, Pinatubo, and Krakatoa look like firecrackers. It blankets thousands of miles around it in lava and ash, casting a pall over the earth that lowers temperatures and hinders plant life for decades. Compared to Mother Nature we anthropogenic climate changers (if we are that) are pikers. Interestingly enough, that supervolcano is due for another eruption. Interestingly enough, so too is another supervolcano, one constructed entirely by humans. As to which erupts first, bet on the latter.

Newtons Third Law: For every action, there is an equal and opposite reaction. Coercion and violence generate a reaction, a countervailing pressure. They are historical constants, so like Yellowstones volcano, the pressure has been building for centuries, although not 6,000 of them. Like Yellowstones geysers, pressure-reducing steam has occasionally been released; coercion has abated and freedom briefly flowered. We know those periods as the times when progress mostly happened: the Renaissance, the Enlightenment, the Industrial Revolution. However, the twentieth century marked a resurgence of pressure.

Their intellectual degradation complete, the coercive class meets any manifestation of countervailing pressure with still more coercion. The most pathetic case is the US government. Left at a zenith of power at the end of World War II, it has squandered its moral, military, and financial capital....

Israel destroys Palestinian childrens school "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

August 22 was to be the first day in a new school for Palestinian children who had previously had to walk a long distance to their old school, itself an overcrowded one in a converted car garage. But the night before opening day, as part of its ongoing US-supported efforts to make life hell for the Palestinians it rules over in its apartheid state, Israeli forces destroyed the childrens school so that when the children turned up, there was nothing there.

Israeli military jeeps came barreling down towards Jubbet al-Dhibs first and only primary school late Tuesday night, terrifying locals who had been finishing preparations for the schools grand opening set for the next morning. Soldiers shot tear gas and rubber-coated steel bullets as they cleared the way for bulldozers and flatbed trucks brought in to take the school.

The school, located between four Palestinian villages on the outskirts of Bethlehem, was built with caravans on a concrete foundation by local authorities and international NGOs partnered with the European Union, hoping to mitigate the myriad of challenges facing students in the area.

Israeli soldiers quickly cleared the area with crowd control weapons, and within an hour of the soldiers arrival the caravans had been loaded up and taken away along with the tables, desks, construction equipment and everything else other than the concrete foundation, bathrooms and tiny chairs brought for the seven-to-nine-year-olds that were expected to attend their first day of school the next morning.

The sheer cruelty of the Israeli policies is appalling. Watch this video of what happened.

In my work-in-progress, The Underground, here is what I wrote about Google: "They're clever, I'll give them that. They're saying you can search them for any information in the world, but they're really searching you." Google has decided it's not doing enough to lead us into a better world. So now it's going to enter the field of psychiatry. Engadget.com: Google is "offering a medically validated, anonymous screening questionnaire for clinical depression if you search for information on the condition. This won't definitively indicate that you're clinically depressed, to be clear, but it will give you useful information you can take to a doctor." "Google and others are determined to fight fake news, and they know that the consequences of false or incomplete medical information could be serious. If you need help, they want to be sure you get the appropriate support." Let's see if I can help Google fight false or incomplete medical information. For example, be aware that there is no defining lab test for clinical depression. No blood test, no urine test, no saliva test, no brain scan, no genetic assay.

Cinema Day runs every year on the August bank holiday Monday. FilmHubNI puts on a feast of free or greatly reduced events to tempt you in to celebrate the rich local heritage of film-making, venues and subjects. Cinema Day 2017 screenings are spread far beyond Belfast, so check the programme for something local to you.

Two controversial TV documentaries are being shown in the Black Box Green Room on Monday evening at 7.30pm.

Real Lives: At the Edge of the Union was a BBC documentary for the Real Lives strand that offered a window into the lives of two politicians: Martin McGuinness and Gregory Campbell.

Given Prime Minister Margaret Thatchers declaration only a month before that the IRA should be starved of the oxygen of publicity, Home Secretary Leon Brittan said that broadcasting the programme would be against the national interest and wrote to the BBC Chairman asking for the programme to be cancelled.

On top of attempted political censorship by the government, the BBC Governors called an emergency meeting, decided to view the programme and then ruled that it could not go out. The dominoes started to fall. BBC staff striked. The Assistant Director-General said the Governors were to the BBC what the iceberg was to the Titanic and the programme was later broadcast.

Sunday Sermonette (a commentary) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Taking a cruise on the Thames on bank 
holiday - because that's what you do when
you're a on vacation. Or so it was explained.
A Better Mousetrap

I passed by Lambeth Palace while driving around downtown London on Sunday bank holiday today. I would have gone in, but they charge you if you want to go into the church. I must say that's more efficient than the way that the parsonage does it in Texas.

It's something like ten quid to walk inside...my-my-my.  The Archbishop is said to be a pillar of piety and occasionally hands out pennies to the poor when the cameras are rolling. It made me wonder if the archbishop and his apparatchiks ever actually read of the life of Christ in the Bible. I'm not taking a shot at Anglicans, but it did strike me as strange.

Sports

There is a certain logic to British-favored sports. Rugby was designed to be played in a mud-wallow and even though it hasn't rained on me since I've been in Old Blighty, it does rain (just not on me). I'm surprised that basketball isn't more popular here. Basketball was designed to be played by tall Africans -- indoors. The Brits have a LOT of Africans and a lot of indoors.

The US Jewish debate over white Jewish privilege in Israel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Earlier this week this website suggested that, in the wake of Charlottesville and its aftermath, the Forwards publication of Jewish Voice for Peaces Naomi Danns piece equating Zionism with racism albeit with a ringing denunciation two days later by Editor Jane Eisner was revolutionary a sign that the monolith of Jewish opinion on Israel was breaking up, finally permitting a true and open debate in the American Jewish tent about whether, in privileging Jews over Palestinians, Israel has become an ethnocracy inconsistent with human dignity and democratic and Jewish values.

This debate, as necessary as it is, has the capacity to tear apart the American Jewish community, as the debate over civil rights and the Vietnam War tore apart the American national fabric two generations ago.  That is a divide from which the United States has yet to recover, so this discussion, and how we handle it, is critical.  But there is no escaping it, because an increasing percentage of American Jews, and particularly the young, find intolerable what they perceive, in the wake of the fear and trauma engendered by the Holocaust, and of the success of the Zionist enterprise and the first modern Jewish state, to be Israels abuse of power privileged Jewish power over Palestinian Arabs who also have deep roots in the land on which the Jewish state sits.

Dann is one of those young people.  Her argument is that the Zionist project and the Jewish state is built on white Jewish privilege, which deprives Palestinian residents of Israel, and occupied Palestinians in the West Bank, of their equal rights and human dignity.  She is careful to say that American white nationalist leader Richard Spencers comparison of white supremacy to Israel is not literally true, because his racist views are abhorrent to the majority of Israeli and American Jews, and the worlds abandonment of Jews to the Nazis was an historic rationale for a Jewish state, which distinguishes us fundamentally from white nationalists in the U.S. who are not facing any kind of discrimination whatsoever.

But there is, she says, a kernel of truth to the observation that there is some resemblance between Spencers white Zionism and the Jewish Zionist project, not just from the right-wing violence against Palestinians and left-wing Jews, but because as that project has come to be practiced today, the Jewish state is premised on Jewish privilege, attempts to erase and displace Palestinians from Israel and the West Bank, an obsession with demographics and the maintenance of a Jewish majority, the seizure of privately owned Palestinian homes and lands, and the demolition of tens of thousands of Palestinian homes.

And, she suggests, white privilege often piggybacks o...

As a result of the Russian governments personnel cap imposed on the US Mission, all nonimmigrant visa (NIV) operations across Russia will be suspended beginning August 23, 2017.

Visa operations will resume on a greatly reduced scale. Beginning September 1, nonimmigrant visa interviews will be conducted only at the US Embassy in Moscow.

NIV interviews at the US Consulates in St. Petersburg, Yekaterinburg, and Vladivostok are suspended until further notice.

In response, Sergey Lavrov said (t)he first impression is the US authors of these decisions have plotted another attempt at stirring up resentment among Russian citizens regarding decisions by the Russian authorities.

As for our countermovesIve already said that it is necessary to study in detail the decisions announced by the Americans today.

PARIS French President Emmanuel Macron spoke on Sunday with Turkish counterpart Tayyip Erdogan about efforts to free a French journalist detained in the country, and the two leaders also discussed the Syrian crisis.

A statement from Macrons office on Sunday said Macron had demanded the release and return to France of journalist Loup Bureau, who was seized by Turkish border guards on the frontier with Iraq in early August.

The two presidents agreed to make further contact, and at the ministerial level as well, in order to arrive at a positive outcome, the statement from the Elysee Palace said of the journalists plight.

They also discussed the situation in Syria, Iraq and the Gulf region as well as the battle against terrorism, with France working to create a specialist contact group to discuss Syria on the sidelines of the United Nations general assembly.

AFP | Libyas unity government chief Fayez al-Sarraj at a joint press conference in the Sudanese capital on August 27, 2017

KHARTOUM (AFP)  President Omar al-Bashir of Sudan said on Sunday that the crisis in neighbouring Libya has impacted Sudan, with human traffickers using the East African countrys territories to commit cross-border crimes.Speaking at a joint press conference with visiting UN-backed Libyan premier Fayez al-Sarraj, Bashir also said security issues in Libya had made Khartoums fight against human trafficking more expensive.

We are affected directly by the insecurity in Libya, which has made it expensive for us to fight human trafficking, illegal immigration and cross-border crimes, Bashir said.

 Image result for Sudan, Libya, map

Those who are committing these crimes are using the instability in Libya, and using Sudanese territories to commit their crimes.

Every year tens of thousands of illegal immigrants from the Horn of Africa cross Sudan and enter Libya for their onward journey to Europe across the Mediterranean.

In recent years European and African authorities have put pressure on Khartoum to boost efforts to curb illegal immigration and human trafficking.

Khartoum recognises the Tripoli-based Government of National Accord of Sarraj, a rival of Libyan military strongman Khalifa Haftar, who is accused by Sudan of enlisting rebels from the countrys Darfur region to fight alongside his forces.

Bashir reiterated that accusation on Sunday.

We have some Sudanese members of rebel groups active in Libya as mercenaries, he said, without elaborating.

Sarraj said the two leaders discussed the security situation in Libya.

Sudan is of strategic importance to Libya, and we discussed how to secure the border, he said.

The two leaders did not talk about last months closure of a Sudanese consulate and the expulsion of 12 diplomats by the Haftar-backed authorities in eastern Libya.

A pro-Haftar news agency had reported that the Sudanese mission in Kufra, an oasis in southern Libya, was closed on the grounds that it damaged Libyan national security.

Green Manure "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you have a bit of space in your garden, growing green manures or cover crops is a great way to improve soil fertility and add organic matter to your soil. They can also be used as weed suppressants, and assist in the control of pest and diseases. So what are they, and where and when can you use them?

What is green manure?

Green manures or cover crops describe a range of temporary, fast growing leafy plants which are sown from seed generally in autumn or spring, grown through the next few weeks or months (depending on the season), and then, just before they begin to flower and set seed, they are slashed and turned in to the soil, or used as mulch for whatevers to be planted next.

Why is it grown?

You might consider growing a green manure crop in a new garden area to supress weeds, improve drainage, reduce compaction, stabilise the area to limit erosion, and improve the soil before you put in permanent plantings. Green manure crops are often used in vegetable gardens, in beds, or parts of beds which are given a break from vegetable production for a season to improve the soil and set the bed up for the next crop.

Vegetable gardeners might have some space to spare after the summer harvest, and if you have a crop rotation system, you could think of incorporating a green manure crop into the rotation check out our guide to crop rotation incorporating green manure crops here.

When to plant

There are different green manure crops that will thrive in different climates and different seasons.
If you want to plant a cool/cold season crop and you live in
an area with cool/cold winters (Tasmania, Victoria and southern New South Wales, southern South Australia and southern Western Australia), the best sowing time is early autumn. If its been very dry, wait for a bit of autumn rain before sowing. You can also sow cool/cold season crops in these areas in early spring;
a warmer area (northern New South Wales and southern Queensland, warmer parts of South Australia and Western Australia) plant cool/cold season crops a little later in April or May;
in a frost free area, cool/cold season crops can be planted from autumn until the end of winter.

If you want to plant a warm season crop, and you live in a colder area, plant in spring, once theres no risk of frost. In warmer areas, plant in summer whenever you can rely on rainfall, or are able to irrigate. If you live in a tropical area, you can plant warm season crops throughout the yea...

Washington (FAIR Donald Trump is finally presidential again, pundits insist, now that he is ratcheting up another US war.

In a speech on August 21, the far-right US president did an about-face, announcing a surge in the 16th year of the war in Afghanistan, which he had previously harshly condemned. Trump did not reveal many specifics, but reports suggest his administration will deploy 4,000 more soldiers to the country (Fox News8/21/17), in addition to the roughly 8,400 US troops and 5,000 other NATO forces already there.

Like clockwork, pundits responded to the news by rushing to praise Trump for his presidential decision. There is nothing quite as presidential as expanding an unending war that has left many thousands of Muslim civilians dead.

3D Printing T-Shirt Designs "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Usually, t-shirt designs are screen printed, but thats so old school. You have to make the silkscreen and then rub paint all over its clearly a technique meant for the past. Well, fear not, as [RCLifeOn] is here to bring us to the future with 3D Printed T-Shirt Designs.

[RCLifeOn] affixes t-shirts to his print build platform and boom: youve got 3D printed graphics. He started by using PLA which, while it looked great, wasnt up to a tussle with a washing machine. However, he quickly moved on to NinjaFlex which fended much better in a wash cycle. While the NinjaFlex washed better, [RCLifeOn] did have some issues getting the NinjaFlex to adhere to the t-shirt. With a little persistence and some settings tweaking, he was able to come out ahead with a durable and aesthetically pleasing result.

Now, 3D printing isnt going to replace screen printing, but its also not going to replace injection molding. What 3D printing lacks in speed and efficiency, it makes up in setup time & cost. In other words, if you need 50 t-shirts of the same design, screen printing is the way to go. But, if you need 50 shirts, each with a different design, you just might want to follow in [RCLifeOns] footsteps.

Anyways, we dont have much on 3D printing t-shirts, but we do have other useful information on 3D printing slinkys and 3D printing project enclosures. And, if youd rather do it the old-school way, we can show you how to silkscreen all the things.

Trumpanzee Plays Electoral Politics In Alabama And Nevada-- As Democrats Quietly Watch A GOP Civil War Break Out "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


After the Alabama primary, Seor Trumpanzee made one flaccid attempt to paint his rejection by Alabama Republican voters as a plus. He tweeted that his defeated candidate, inchmbent Luther Strange-- upon whom McConnell and a Trump-directed SuperPAC spent millions of dollars-- "picked up a lot of additional support since my endorsement." The final count in the Republican primary was 164,524 (38.87%) for crackpot Roy Moore and 138,971 (32.83%) for Trump and McConnell-backed establishment incumbent Luther Strange. [Another crackpot, Rep. Mo Brooks took 83,287 votes (19.68%) and a scattering of 7 vanity candidates split another 30-some-odd thousand votes between them.] Moore and Strange will face off in a runoff on September 26, the winner of which will then face Democrat Doug Jones, former U.S. Attorney for the Northern District of Alabama, who won his 8-person primary with 109,105 votes (66.12%) on December 12.

Moore is more of a Trump candidate than Strange-- but its likely no one told that to Trump. So he backed the wrong horse. Thursday, Sarah Palin endorsed Moore. "Glad hes running and am honored to endorse Judge Roy Moore for the US Senate," reads her statement. "Judge Moore has shown he has what it takes to stand up to the out-of-touch political establishment. The Judge has proven hes not afraid of a fight for what is right, and hes ready to take on DCs swamp monsters and help make America great again. We need more bold leaders like Judge Moore who will fight for all of us in the US Senate." Kind of makes Seor Trumpanzee seem like a weenie.

Polling has been consistent since the run-off, showing Moore ahead of Strange. JMC found Moore crushing Strange 51-32% and the more mainstream Decision Desk HQ found nearly identical results last week-- Moore 50.3% to Strange 32.2%....

McCains Mad World and The Cancer of Conflict "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

21st Century Wire says

Some devastating news befell John Sidney McCain III recently, as his staff announced that the US Senator had been diagnosed with a brain tumor called glioblastoma discovered during recent testing at the Mayo Clinic in Phoenix, Arizona. We wish the Senator well

On Episode #195 Chickenhawk Nation of the SUNDAY WIRE with co-hosts Patrick Henningsen and Mike Robinson, we break down all the reasons why we think its time for McCain to retire.

The list is endless. Well start with a real cancer of conflict the senseless truck bombing of Al-Kindi cancer treatment hospital in Aleppo, Syria. The attack carried out by the same freedom fighters that McCain was seen cavorting with during his secret trip to the Aleppo area in May 2013. The very same rebels he was supplying weapons to the Free Syrian Army (under the command of Jabbat al Nusra aka al Qaeda in Syria) would later order the bombing on this cancer treatment hospital.

The United State of Israel and Palestine "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Israel-Palestine conflict needs to be resolved. A solution of two nations united within a single state, along the lines of the UK/Scotland/England relationship, would enable the two peoples to share the land while retaining their national life and identities.

The Oslo process, intended to produce a two-state solution to the Israel-Palestine conflict, has failed. Many people are saying that Israel, by its on-going occupation and colonization in the West Bank and Jerusalem, has already created a one-state reality, and that the two-state solution is dead.

What these people ignore (or deny) is the legal reality that Israel and Palestine both exist as states recognized by other states, and are both part of the United Nations. Palestine was created in 1988 by declaration and recognition, the same process that created Israel in 1948.

It is inconceivable that either Israel or Palestine would declare itself out of existence.

In this essay I argue that a one-state solution is highly desirable in the long-term, and suggest what it might look like, but also argue that a two-state agreement is a necessary first step towards its achievement.

The Two Nations

There is a human reality to take into account: that residing within Israel-Palestine there are two distinct peoples: Israeli Jews, and Palestinian Arabs, with different histories, cultures, languages and religions. These are distinct national identities[1], they are important to the people concerned, and they will not give them up.

Whether all the Jews of the world are part of the Israeli-Jewish nation, as the Zionists claim, is for the Jews of the world to say. Zionists today often claim that Palestinian Arabs are an invented people. The truth is that there has been a place on the map called Palestine for around 2,500 years, and a distinct Palestinian national identity for around a thousand years. The existence of a Palestinian-Arab nation was acknowledged by the World Zionist Organization in its ...

Hans Olde "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Hans Olde (1855-1917) was a German painter and lithographer of no particular fame, but I like some of his work. (Sunrise) He had a son, another painter also named Hans Olde, but the younger Olde's work looks nothing like his father's, so there is no confusing them.

Olde came from a farming family in Germany's far north and had to rebel against parental authority to become an artist. He had a rapid rise in the art world, studying in Munich and then at the Acadmie Julian in Paris, where he exhibited at the Salon and discovered impressionism. (The Reaper, 1892)

Olde paid the rent by doing magazine illustrations, and these days those are some of his most famous works. This is the poet Detlev von Liliencron.

'If I see a drone, I remove my SIM card': Afghan villagers live in constant fear of US airstrikes "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Afghanistan's Nangarhar province has been one of the hardest hit by US airstrikes, which target Islamist militants but also hit civilians. In a video by RT's Ruptly agency, locals shared what it was like to live under the constant risk of being bombed. As a stronghold of both the Taliban and the emerging presence of the Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) terrorist group, Nangarhar province saw 358 airstrikes by US forces in July alone - half of all the airstrikes in Afghanistan over the month. On August 11, the Afghan government said that at least 16 civilians, including women and children, had been killed in one bombing in the Haska Meena district, which the US military claimed was targeting militants. In a new Ruptly video, villagers describe being in a state of constant anxiety because of the air raids. "US jets fly over and patrol anytime, therefore civilians are living in fear and turn off their mobiles and remove their SIM cards. They break their SIM cards and buy another one," a man from the village of Basakhel said. "Now people are trying to not use their phones." "Sometimes, if I see a drone flying over us, I become fearful and want to remove my SIM card from my mobile and put it far away from myself," said another.

Civil war is imminent in England "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Ten years after the crash, theres barely suppressed civil war in Britain

All history now, isnt it? The credit crisis that began in August 2007, the ensuing banking crash and global recession. One bumper episode from the long-ago past, when the iPhone was a newborn and Amy Winehouse still made records. Now done, dusted, reformed and resolved. Or so one assumes, from the official self-congratulation.

The European commission marks the 10th anniversary of the credit crisis by trumpeting: Back to recovery thanks to decisive EU action. Yes, the same clapped-out European establishment that has spent the last decade kicking a can down the road. The head of the derivatives industry body, ISDA, admits: We sometimes forget to articulate the social value of what we do. Indeed so: before the crash, bankers emailed each other about how the derivatives that they were paid so much to flog were crap and vomit.

Everyone knows history is written by the victors, but this is something else: bullshit recounted by the bullshitters.

The science behind why onions make us cry "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

If you plan on making a salad, some kind of soup or a savory stir-fry, onions will most likely be part of the equation. You might also slice them into rings to place on sandwiches, or saut them gently in coconut oil or grass fed butter until they're soft, translucent and absolutely delicious. But something else may be likely as well: When you're cutting or chopping them, before you get very far into the first onion, you're very likely to find your nose twitching and tears making your eyes smart. Medical News Today suggests onions make your eyes spring a leak when you cut into them (or, to a lesser degree, other potent-smelling members of the allium family, such as garlic, chives, scallions and leeks) to discourage greedy predators from eating them. Whatever the reason, you can blame - or thank - specific volatile chemicals for giving onions their characteristic bold flavor and fragrance. A perennial vegetable, onions form a bulb the first year, which happens to be quite flavorful and functions as the plant's energy store. The next year, they produce flowers and seeds, which keep the fragrance and cause the onion itself to keep reproducing. Researchers have recently determined how it actually works. The eye-irritating factor released by chopping onions was once thought to be "cut loose," so to speak, by the enzyme alliinase, which breaks down into flavor molecules, and in the process, some are converted to lachrymatory factor (LF) by LF synthase.1 The journal Nature published the study, in which the researchers explained: "Here we show that this factor is not formed as a by-product of this reaction, but that it is specifically synthesized by a previously undiscovered enzyme, lachrymatory-factor synthase. It may be possible to develop a non-lachrymatory onion that still retains its characteristic flavour and high nutritional value by downregulating the activity of this synthase enzyme."2

Sunday Facepalm. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The immaturity of so many conservative, christian white males is, at times, unbelievable. Like so many toddlers who never saw a reason to mature emotionally or intellectually, too many of them are in seats of power, or close to them, and happily enable swathes of equally immature assholes to continue in asshole behaviour and rhetoric. One leading the pack in the immaturity stakes is the ever noisy Wayne Allyn Root. Once again, hes spitting and frothing about women, but specifically, liberal women. And liberal men, just the worst yknow.

On his Wednesday radio program, right-wing commentator, conspiracy theorist and Donald Trumpobsessed sycophant Wayne Allyn Root gushed about President Trumps rally in Arizona the night before, rejoicing that Trump is a real man to whom liberals just dont know how to respond.

Root said that he, like Trump, is also a real guys guy and was treated the same way by all the liberal, spoiled brat, lucky sperm club pussycat wussies he encountered while attending Columbia University.

Mr. Root never stays quiet over just how much hes a real man, a real mans man, and a real guys guy. Honestly, if he got himself a neon suit advertising his base insecurity, it would be more subtle. He makes sure to tell people, frequently, how efficiently he can beat people up, because thats one of those markers of a real man. He makes sure to mention, often, that locker room talk and vulgarity towards women is real man stuff, too. Now, those one the liberal and humanitarian side of life are assigned to people who cant cope with a real man. Ive said before, and Ill say again, most of us know exactly how to deal with such types. They are commonly known as assholes.

Liberal, spoiled brat, lucky sperm club pussycat wussies. :Laughs: Sometimes, I really do think its a pity such men cant genuinely hear themselves. This is almost painfully pitiful, and an old, old song.

Root said that liberal men dont know how to fight and they dont know how to argue and only pretend to care about issues because youre a guy and there are women in the room and you want to have sex.

Lots of people want to have sex, its fun. Now, Im privileged to know a whole lot of liberal people, many men among them, and they are excellent at argument, but I expect that wouldnt meet Roots definition, whatever it might be. Arguing is not compulsory in a relat....

The Science of Composting "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Many well-intentioned composters keep adding kitchen scraps to the compost bin and then wonder why they are left with a smelly rotting mess.

The science of composting is all about getting the carbon/nitrogen ratio of the contents correct. Follow the correct principles and you will create superb compost suitable for enriching soil.

What is the Carbon/Nitrogen Ratio?

Good compost is a balance of different ingredients, but essentially it comes down to the all important, but often misunderstood, carbon/nitrogen ratio. So, whats it all about? Well, lets call carbon Brown, and nitrogen Green. We need a good balance of brown to green, generally 30 brown to 1 green. Sounds complicated I know but its not.

Brown materials include things like paper (the shredded Sunday paper minus the super glossy magazine bit is perfect), sawdust (from untreated timber only), dried leaves and oaten hay.  Green materials are things high in nitrogen, including lawn clippings, fresh manures (cow, sheep and chook only!), vegetable scraps and (shudder) urine.

The best way to get this right is to add one bucket of Browns for every bucket of Greens. So, when adding a bucket of silverbeet add in a bucket of shredded newspaper.  Because of the different make up of these products, it gets the C/N ratio just right!

If there is too much Brown the nitrogen in Greens will be locked up by microorganisms and be unavailable for subsequent plant growth.

Potassium is also an important constituent of compost.  Although it is much more available to plants than either the carbon or nitrogen, its content can be reduced if the compost heap is open and subject to a lot of rain.  This problem can be overcome by covering the heap as it approaches maturity.

What ingredients go into good compost?

All compost bins, or heaps need a balance of materials that:

  • are high in nitrogen, such as blood & bone or chook manure,
  • contain carbon, such as dried leaves or shredded newspapers, and
  • contain both carbon & nitrogen, such as kitchen scraps, pea straw and green garden prunings.

What else helps the composting process?

In addition, the compost heap/bin needs:

  • water, but only enough so that the contents are moist but not wet
  • oxygen, from air, added by regularly turning over the conten...

Phoenix Newspaper Breaks The Internet In Brutal Tweetstorm On Former Sheriff Joe Arpaio "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A Phoenix publication took to its Twitter account to explain the kind of person former Sheriff Joe Arpaio is following Donald Trumps decision to pardon him. The former reality show star pardoned the racist former Sheriff of Maricopa County while a hurricane was barreling down on Texas.

Replace The Business Cycle With Permanent Poverty "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Replace The Business Cycle With Permanent Poverty | dollar-currency-money-economy | Economy & Business Special Interests

The lethargic performance of the U.S. economy going back decades and plunging into an embedded depression, since the financial meltdown of 2007, has caused permanent damage. The business community and the financial press have yet to acknowledge that prospects are not going to improve. It does not take a commercial genius or an academic professor to look around at the shrinking middle class and conclude that the lessons of the preverbal business cycle no longer apply. In order for any economy to prosper, the fruits of commerce must improve the financial conditions of the producing contributors.

Ever since the globalist plutocrats have taken over the international economy, a prime objective has been to contract if not eliminate a viable domestic commerce sector. In a previous era the notion, whether real or imaginary, was that down turns will eventually be reversed and prosperity will return. Not so anymore.

A key consequence of systematically marginalizing the merchant economy results in the wholesale elimination of good paying jobs. The small business entrepreneur has a bullseye on their back as the government deploys legions of snipers taking target practice.

When a public sector job becomes the preferred if not the only gainful employment, the producing workers who create the real wealth are retired into oblivion. Under such circumstances, how can it be possible for a business cycle rebound?

The net result is that the purchasing power of the average family will continue to sink. Wages do not have the prospects to rise, because the consumer economy has run out of disposable money to buy n...

Chip implants make humans more efficient "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

My new Op-Ed for The San Francisco Chronicle: http://www.sfchronicle.com/opinion/openforum/article/Chip-im003194.php #transhumanism


Wisconsin company Three Square Market recently announced it will become the first U.S. company to offer its employees chip implants that can be scanned at security entrances, carry medical information and even purchase candy in some vending machines. A company in Europe already did this last year.

For many people, it sounds crazy to electively have a piece of technology embedded in their body simply for conveniences sake. But a growing number of Americans are doing it, including me.

I got my RFID implant two years ago, and now I use it to send text messages, bypass security codes on my computer, and open my front door. Soon Ill get the software to start my car, and then my life will be totally keyless.

The type of chip implants in humans varies depending on the manufacturer or purpose of the device. A few hundred thousand people around the world have cochlear implants, which allow deaf people to hear. Others have implants to help with Alzheimers, Parkinsons or even depression. A growing number of transhumanists people who want to use radical technology in their bodies have the $60 implant I have. Its tiny, about the size of a grain of rice, and is injected into the body by a syringe. The injection process usually in the hand near the thumb is often bloodless and takes seconds to complete.

Eclipse-like crop circle appears just days before the solar eclipse "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It's just days before an eclipse of a lifetime and as the world readies for the sight and some for the energetic shifts, a new crop circle has appeared in a field at Sutton Hall near London Southend Airport. The circle was discovered on August 17, 2017 but it's meaning, if any, is not yet fully understood. A crop circle with meaning you might ask? Yes, evidence has shown time and time again that many of these circles have incredible scientific anomalies and thus people believe the formations come from somewhere or something else. On the scientific side, the electromagnetic field over the area where a circle appears is usually electrostatically charged. There is also a rare form of electromagnetic energy called an "ionized plasma vortex," also known as ball lighting, involved with these formations. Let's have a closer look at this and imagine for a moment. In this particular formation, it appears the overall appearance resembles a "radio broadcast tower" with a "satellite dish" near the top. In this case, its "satellite dish" resembles the usual symbols for a "solar eclipse." Interesting considering we will have the Great American Eclipse in just a couple days on August 21, 2017.

Type 2 diabetes mellitus (T2DM), also known as non-insulin dependent diabetes mellitus, is reported to be one of the oldest diseases known to mankind, first documented three thousand years ago in an Egyptian manuscript (1). One of the sequelae of metabolic syndrome, type 2 diabetes is characterized by hyperglycemia and insulin resistance, which manifests as relative insulin deficiency (2). Insulin, generated by the pancreas, is the hormonal signal produced with sugar or carbohydrate consumption, that enables influx of glucose into the cells to fuel energy-demanding processes. Thus, the insulin resistance which is the cardinal attribute of type 2 diabetes leads to impaired glucose transport to muscle, liver, and adipose cells (2).
In comparison, type 1 diabetes, which is delineated insulin-dependent diabetes mellitus, arises secondary to insulin deficiency as a result of autoimmune-mediated destruction of the insulin-producing beta cells of the pancreas (3). Compared to type 2 diabetes, type 1 diabetes may necessitate immediate need for exogenous insulin replacement (4). However, with type 2 diabetes, insulin insensitivity leads to declining insulin production and ultimately pancreatic beta-cell failure (2).
The constellation of risk factors that denote metabolic syndrome, including visceral adiposity, hypertension, and hyperlipidemia, are well-elucidated to augment risk for type 2 diabetes (5). Obesity, for example, a hallmark of metabolic syndrome, contributes to just over half of cases of type 2 diabetes (2). Ectopic fat deposition, or the accumulation of triglycerides in liver, muscle, and pancreatic cells, is also implicated in th...

Left-wing website labels Charles Barkley a 'White Supremacist' for saying blacks should stop being angry over statues "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

According to left-wing website The Root, Charles Barkley is a "white supremacist" because he says black people should stop getting angry over old statues and instead concentrate on not killing each other and getting an education. "Why won't Charles Barkley shut the fuck up?" asks a clearly triggered Michael Harriot, whose story is filed under the category "Stupid Negroes". "Is there anyone who thinks that Barkley's statements about race reveal anything other than his repeated willingness to throw black people under the bus for our stupid unwillingness to assimilate into whiteness?" he rants. Barkley's thought crime was to encourage black people to concentrate less on getting angry over historical monuments and more on getting an education, working hard and being successful. He also said black people "need to stop killing each other."

Im all for removing that statue, too "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

There is a monument to Christopher Columbus at the Minnesota capitol in St Paul? I had no idea. He was an evil old monster, Im all for removing anything like that and there is a petition to remove it and replace it with two statues, one of Prince and another of someone chosen by the Indian community. I like that idea.

But then, I think we should regularly change art anyway. The Columbus statue isnt exactly equivalent to Michelangelos David. It was bought and paid for by an association of Italian-Americans about a century ago, and so what it really represents is a wave of self-promotion by an ethnic community that had been discriminated against (which is a fine thing to do; its just too bad they picked such a terrible hero), and isnt necessarily high art. Of course, Michelangelos David was also commissioned as propaganda by Florentines to cock a snook at Rome, so motives dont necessarily mar great art, but does anyone believe this particular statue will stand the test of time? Does anyone think the Confederate statues that dot the landscape are actually significant works of art? Many of them were mass-produced!

I have no problem with old, pedestrian art being taken down and replaced with new stuff thats the kind of change that also brings more money to artists, too. And then, a century from now, Minnesotans can look at the statue of Prince and think about whether to swap it out with something new, too.*

We often revise and modify memorial art. That statue of Columbus originally described him as discovering America; that did not go over well in a state with a substantial native population and an even larger Scandinavian population (and, I fear, the sensibilities of the Lake Wobegone set were more influential than the Indians) and it was replaced with a plaque that credited him with initiated the merging of the cultures between the old and new worlds (warning: autoplay video at link!), which is the niftiest euphemism for rape, looting, and genocide Ive ever seen.

Theres also a Spanish-American War memorial there that had the most revealing change:

The original memorial honored Minnesota soldiers who battled to free the oppressed peoples of the Philippine Islands, who suffered under the despotic rule of Spain.

The corrected language reads: The United States entered that war to defeat Spain, not to free the Filipinos. Most of the battles listed above were fought against Filipinos.

Yeah, thats a kinda different interpretation all right.

According to British intelligence, Afghanistan could fall to the Taliban if the US pulled out. Prime Minister Theresa May intends to give the green light to a surge of covert operations targeting Taliban, Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Al-Qaeda militants in Afghanistan, the Sunday Times reported citing senior sources in the government. Special Air Service (SAS) and Special Boat Service (SBS) operatives are expected to play a vital role in a "scoping exercise" allowing military leaders to figure out what kind of troops are more suitable for a new Afghan deployment.

Manila Hosted Discussions of the Southeast Asian Problems "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

No ammount of preparations is enough when the leading players meet.

No ammount of preparations is enough when the leading players meet.

At the beginning of August, Manila, the capital of the Philippines, hosted a number of international forums that opened their door for foreign ministers of a number of states. These events played an important role in the preparations for a number of summits (planned for the first half of November of this year) that are going to be held for the countries that are directly or indirectly involved in the political, economic, military-strategic affairs of the Asia-Pacific region (APR) in general and the subregion of Southeast Asia in particular.

Although the dangerous situation on the Korean Peninsula has been touched upon during these events, but a lions share of attention was paid to the South China Sea and the matters that are related to the situation in that strategic area.

By the nature of the assessments of the problems observed in Southeast Asia and South Korea, as well as approaches to the resolution of this crisis, the participants in the Manila summits could be divided into three groups.

The first group consists of ten ASEAN member countries, all of which together form the political and geographical category of Southeast Asia. Preparation for the celebration of the 50th anniversary of the creation of ASEAN was among the most important topics in Manila.

Secondly, this is China, whose leaders are also considering it to be a part of this subregion. Finally, the were ministers from a number of countries that took part in the Manila events, that are being referred to by Beijing and a number of other players as extra-regional forces.

That is an extremely remarkable geopolitical meme. On the one hand, it refers to countries that are not geographically related to Southeast Asia and that allegedly have nothing to do with the political problems that exist within the region in question But at the same the use of the word forces means that the countries described by this term are trying to project their influence over the regions that are lying far away from their national territories.

Such countries in Beijings understanding are...

SOTT FOCUS: Behind the Headlines: Afghanistan: Where Empires Go To Die "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Four more years in Afghanistan. Maybe eight more? Or how about another sixteen? If the deep state has its way, it may never end, even if it ends up costing trillions. This last week, Trump caved to the war-mongers, against his better instincts, opting for more endless war. The Soviets at the very least were smart enough to leave in the 80s, but the Americans seem to enjoy losing bigly. Meanwhile, the Russians are showing what a real military strategy looks like. The Syrian war is pretty much over. De-escalation zones are up and running. ISIS is on the run and its territory dwindling by the day. And the rebels have all joined together for one last hurrallahu akbar, finally effecting that "un-mingling" of moderates and terrorists. This is what happens when you have clearly defined goals, and an actual military strategy. Maybe America could learn a thing or two from the Russians.

Recently pardoned Sheriff Joe Arpaio failed to act on over 400 reported child sex crimes while in office "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

President Trump issued his first official pardon on Friday, sparing former Arizona Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was found guilty of criminal contempt after he violated a court order in a racial profiling case by continuing to target illegal immigrants. While both Trump and many of his supporters have applauded Arpaio, who refers to himself as "America's toughest sheriff," there is one thing he is not always tough on-pedophiles. In fact, according to a report from the Associated Press in December 2011, Airpaio's office failed to investigate "more than 400 sex-crimes" that were reported in Maricopa County from 2005 to 2007, "including dozens of alleged child molestations-that were inadequately investigated and in some instances were not worked at all." The report cited current and former police officers familiar with the cases who claimed that victims of the horrific crimes were as young as 2 years old. In El Mirage, the city where Arpaio's office was providing contract police services, officials reportedly discovered at least 32 reported child molestations, and even though suspects were known in all but six cases, Arpaio "failed to follow through."

New App Translates Human Speech Into Elephant Language To Save The Species "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Have you ever wanted to communicate with animals, specifically elephants? Its now possible, thanks to the Hello in Elephant smartphone app that translates texts, expressions and phrases into basic elephant language counterparts.  If you wanted to say I love you, for instance, the app would translate the intention into a sound clip of an elephant expressing exactly that.

CampaignBrief reports that the tool was developed by the David Sheldrick Wildlife Trust, which is based in Kenya, Africa. The goal is to boost awareness about elephant conservation and raise money in the process.  Its a noble effort, considering the African elephant is predicted to go extinct within 10 years due to poaching and habitat loss.

Reportedly, the organization hopes that by bridging the language barrier between the great mammals and humans, users will be more likely to donate to their survival. After decades of research into the ways elephants communicate and behave, were beginning to understand their language, said a Sheldrick spokesperson. The HelloinElephant Campaign has been created to provide people with the ability to translate simple human words and emotions into elephant calls that signal similar emotions or intentions.

Elephants are one of the most intelligent and empathetic creatures on the planet, which is why their plight is so newsworthy. Sadly, their numbers are dwindling. In the early 20th century, th...

Suspected Columbian druglord accuses the Feds of destroying evidence proving he was their informant "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A highly prized Colombian defendant has accused U.S. law enforcement agencies of destroying Blackberry messages and withholding emails that he claims would show he was working for them as a confidential informant in the federal government's battles against South America's underworld. Henry De Jesus Lopez Londoo, who was extradited to Miami on a cocaine-trafficking conspiracy charge last year, says the missing text messages and emails would reveal that federal agents authorized him to infiltrate dangerous criminal organizations with specific assignments - and that he wasn't committing crimes on his own. His lawyers claim he was an "undercover asset" for three federal investigative agencies from the fall of 2008 until the end of 2011, before his arrest the following year in Argentina. Prosecutors counter that the agents' text messages to and from the informant were lost because their Blackberry phones were replaced and cannot be found. They also say there were no emails exchanged between the agents and informant. Among the smorgasbord of illicit groups that the defendant says he was asked to penetrate: a drug cartel headed by one-time Mexican fugitive Joaquin "El Chapo" Guzman, members of the al-Qaida terrorist network in Colombia and the Russian mob's ties to the Venezuelan military.

Here Are The Top 25 Career Choices For An Empath "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

Do you find yourself inspired to give back to the world but overwhelmed by a stressful work environment and/or negative people? Chances are, youre an empath who is in the wrong profession.

An empath is someone who feels more deeply than the average human, as they have heightened awareness. As a result, certain career choices are optimal and others not so much. For instance, an empath thrives in smaller companies with fewer people and a reduced amount of stress.

An energy-sensitive individual may also enjoy working from home, or at least for themselves. This is because the comfortable environment allows them to schedule regular breaks and manage their own time.

Some of the worst professions for an empath include working in a corporate setting, where noise, gossip and energy vampires abound. A job in sales, as well, isnt ideal for a sensitive individual as they feel guilty misleading people to buy objects they may or may not need, and lack the aggressiveness required to do well in this field.

Fortunately, the following 25 career choices are ideal for an empath, as they dont challenge the persons sensitive nature:

  1. Being self-employed:

Empaths are at their best when they have the freedom to make their own schedules. Because emotional freedom is of crucial importance for their creative potential, the following self-employed professions are ideal for an empath:

Writers

Editors

Medical professional

Artists

Website and graphic designers

Virtual assistants

Accountants

Lawyers

Electricians

Plumbers

Tim Kelly Interviews E. Michael Jones: Meyer Lansky & The Cincinatti Ballet "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I like Tim Kelly @ Our Interesting Times! (always linked in the sidebar here at the blog)
He does a great job interviewing all sorts of people. 

 Mr Kelley recently interviewed E. Michael Jones. This is not the first interview these two have undertaken, but, this is the first one I've ever posted here.  Why, you ask?
Because for some reason I just found it so very interesting. So much so that I listened twice & may give it yet another listen!
 E Michael Jones is often labelled/name called as an "antisemite" I don't care. I've been labelled that before myself, and worse. Labels aka name calling are often employed so a consumer of media/information does not even bother to consider  information being presented. Information that might spark a flame. Turn on a light. Open a door.  Labels/name calling such as that have no power unless you ascribe a specific power to it. Don't do it!
 I don't choose to taken in by the name calling game.  Rather, my preference is to listen to the information presented and see if it jibes with what I already understand. In the case of this interview and it's topic of societal degradation. This is apparent. Jones addressing this from a more historical perspective aids in filling in the picture.
What is the role of the Talmudic tribe in this societal degradation? It seems oversized for the numbers of that tribe. Why are we tolerating their leadership in issues affecting us non Talmuds aka the goyim? E Michael Jones speaks of when Talmudic judaism over took, I guess what must have been actual or historical Judaism?  He makes the point that Talmudic judaism came after Christianity?  Opposite of common presentation. Quite thought provoking and I wonder what others think about that?

 Can't help but notice after  the Charlottesville incident, the ADL is one of the main mouthpieces to the media presenting the narrative we're supposed to believe. Southern Poverty Law Centre being another one. Why should we believe these narratives? The presenter and what is presented? Why is the ADL telling us what to think?  Who does the ADL really serve?  I'm going to save the historical creation of the ADL for another post! (It's a doozy) Knowing what I do know about the ADL, it has to be asked why should we accept any narrative that organization presents as worthy? What do they have to gain from pushing the anti christian black vs white narrative? More cultural degradation? More divisive identity politics?


It gets me thinking about what is going on in the...

This Montage Of Animals Revolting From Captivity Will Give You Chills [Video] "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Amanda Froelich Truth Theory

No animal wants to live in a cage. Though this may be common knowledge, we humans continue to capture and raise animals in captivity primarily for the sake of entertainment. Yes, some efforts are purely for conservation purposes and are essential to ensure endangered species dont go extinct. However, keeping monkeys, orcas and other exotic animals many people find cute in enclosures is less than humane.

If you disagree, just watch a montage created by The Dodo that shows various species of animals revolting from captivity. The footage isnt only frightening at times, its downright gut-wrenching.

It is now well-established that animals kept in captivity tend to have shorter life spans than those that live in the wild and experience emotional suffering due to being separated from their kin. Animals kept in zoos, marine parks and circuses also tend to display symptoms of stress from living in artificial conditions and regularly show symptoms of boredom.

At the end of the day, every creature desires to live a happy life on their own terms. Hopefully, the montage inspires more people to consider this in the future.

U.S. Defense Secretary Jim Mattis, right, and Israeli Defense Minister Avigdor Lieberman attend a joint press conference at the Defense Ministry in Tel Aviv, Israel, April 21, 2017. (Jonathan Ernst/AP)

 

WASHINGTON The U.S., long known for its meddling in the affairs of other nations, also has a long and sordid history of supporting military juntas abroad, many of which it forced into power through bloody coups or behind-the-scenes power grabs. From Greece in the 1960s to Argentina in the 1980s to the current al-Sisi-led junta in Egypt, Washington has actively and repeatedly supported such undemocratic regimes despite casting itself as the worlds greatest promoter of democracy.

Finally in 2017, karma appears to have come back to roost, as the current presidential administration has now effectively morphed into what is, by definition, a military junta. Though the military-industrial complex has long directed U.S. foreign policy, in the administration of President Donald Trump a group of military officers has gathered unprecedented power and, for all intents and purposes, rules the country.

Chinas army getting ready for something big to go down in Korea "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Chinas military has been increasing the strength and number of its forces along its 880-mile border with North Korea as Pyongyangs military provocations cause the US and its allies to think long and hard about military action against the rogue regime.

report from The Wall Street Journal says that China has established a new border-defense brigade, implemented 24-hour video surveillance of the border, and constructed bunkers to protect from possible nuclear or chemical attacks.

China conducted a live-fire drill in June and July with helicopter gunships and armored infantry units, including a simulated battle with artillery, tanks, and helicopters, according to The Journal. The nature of these military exercises goes beyond securing a border, and they mimic fighting a nuclear-armed adversary.

While China and North Korea exist on paper as allies, Sim Tack, an expert on North Korea at Stratfor, a geopolitical-analysis firm, previously told Business Insider that China would not likely defend Pyongyang from a US-led attack and instead try to prevent or dissuade the US from taking such a step.

Still, a US-led attack on North Korea remains unlikely. South Koreas new liberal government has sought to pursue engagement with its neighbor, and the US would ultimately need its support for such a campaign. From a purely military point of view, North Koreas artillery and nuclear arms hold too many civilians in Seoul at risk.

In June, Secretary of Defense Jim Mattis described possible conflict with North Korea as a serious, a catastrophic war, especially for innocent people in some of our allied countries, to include Japan most likely.

Even short of war, China now has reason to view North Korea as a liability.

In response to North Koreas missile tests and military provocations, the US based its powerful Thaad missile-defense battery in South Korea, frightening Chinese military analysts who think the Thaads powerful radar could one day...

Ben Hubbard of NYT: from parroting Saudi regime propaganda to Israeli occupation propaganda "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

What an ill-informed article about Hizbullah by Hubbard.  His methods of documentation are as solid as those of the notorious Nichols Blanford.  Here are examples:
1) Here he typically absolves Israel of responsibility: "But as the Middle East has changed, with conflicts often having nothing to do with Israel flaring up around the region".  Name me one conflict in the region where Israel is not involved.  It is involved heavily in Syria and in Yemen on the side of the Saudi regime and in Egypt of the side of Mubarak and later Sisi. It is solidly invested in the Kurdish tribal dictatorship.  Have nothing to do with Israel? Oh, he almost said: poor Israel who minds its own business. Notice in the long boring article he says not one word about Israeli occupation of Lebanese territory and of daily Israeli violations of Lebanese sovereignty. 
2) Look here: "Hezbollah has evolved into a virtual arm of Irans Islamic Revolutionary Guards Corps".  Anyone who says this does not know anything about Hizullah and its relations with Iran.  Hubbard, being ill-informed of Lebanese affairs, just parrots the propaganda of the Saudi camp in Lebanon.  The notion that Hasan Nasrallah takes marching orders from commanders of the Revolutionary Guards is ridiculous.  I will even say this based on knowledge and not speculation: Hasan Nasrallah not only does not take orders from Iran (he surely coordinates) but Iran consults with him on every aspect of its policies in the Middle East region.  This is not Subhi Tufayli who as secretary-general of Hizbullah in the 1980s was a mere tool of Iranian intelligence service.
3) And now documentation by Hubbard: "analysts from nine countries". Nine countries? Let me count them: Lebanon (March 14 side for sure), US, Israel, UAE, Saudi Arabia, UK, Bahrain, Yemen (the Saudi camp), and France.  Wow.  Impressive.

10 World's Oldest Artifacts From Armenia "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

1. Leather Shoe - 5,500 years old A perfectly preserved shoe, 1,000 years older than the Great Pyramid of Giza in Egypt and 400 years older than Stonehenge in the UK, has been found in a cave in Armenia. The 5,500 year old shoe, the oldest leather shoe in the world, is made from a single piece of cowhide, cut into two layers, tanned and laced. It contained grass, although the archaeologists were uncertain as to whether this was to keep the foot warm or to maintain the shape of the shoe. "It is not known whether the shoe belonged to a man or woman," said lead author of the research "We thought initially that the shoe and other objects were about 600-700 years old because they were in such good condition," said Dr Pinhasi. "It was only when the material was dated by the two radiocarbon laboratories in Oxford, UK, and in California, US that we realised that the shoe was older by a few hundred years than the shoes worn by tzi, the Iceman." Three samples were taken in order to determine the absolute age of the shoe and all three tests produced the same results. Interestingly enough the shoe very much resembles a traditional Armenian shoe known as "charokh" a type of moccasin, still in popular use in Armenia.

Tor relay of a Brazilian University was banned after harvesting .onions "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The Tor relay of a Brazilian University was banned by the Tor administrators because it was spotted collecting the .onion addresses of visitors.

A team of researchers from a Brazilian University of Campinas in So Paulo, Brazil, has had its Tor relay node banned because it was spotted collecting the .onion addresses of visitors.

Marcus Rodrigues, a junior researcher with the Brazilian University, explained he and his colleagues were working to develop a tool that could identify malicious hidden services.

According to the Tor administrators, the activity conducted by the researchers is a violation of the Tor Projects ethical guidelines and triggered the banning of the node.

Below the description published by the researchers in a Tor mailing list post:

My relay was harvesting .onion addresses and I apologize if that breaks any rule or ethical guideline.

We were conducting some research on malicious Hidden Services to study their behavior and how we could design a tool that could tell malicious and benign Hidden Services apart.

Because we focus mainly on web pages, we use a crawler to get almost all of the data we need. However, there are some statistics (such as the size of the Tor network, how many HSs run HTTP(s) protocol, how many run other protocols and which protocols do they run, etc) which cannot be obtained through a crawler. Thats why we were harvesting .onion addresses.

We would run a simple portscan and download the index page, in case it was running a web server, on a few random addresses we collected. We would also try and determine the average longevity of those few HSs. However, after collecting the data we needed for statistical purposes, the .onion addresses we collected would be deleted and under no circumstances we would disclose the information we collected on a specific .onion address we harvested. In addition, we would never target specific harvested HS, but only a random sample.

Middle East Christians and US foreign policy "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From Alfred: "This stupid article by Newsweek is trying to suggest that Middle East Christians support "America" meaning American foreign policy (run by the American Israeli lobby) and they like Trump more than former American presidents. The article mentions that in Iraq before the American invasion in 2003 there were more than 1 million Christians and now there are less than a quarter a million Christians. Many Iraqi Shiites did celebrate the overthrow of Saddam Hussein when the US invaded and destroyed Iraq, but NOT Iraqi Christians.  Who do you think they blame for this other than US foreign policy? Most of the Christians who have fled Iraq did not come to America. They immigrated to neighboring Arab countries like Jordan, Lebanon, Syria, or to Europe like Sweden, and Switzerland...states that have least supported US foreign policy.  Trump has not done ANYTHING to help Iraqi Christians! In Syria, there used to be a large number of Christians who criticized president Assad (including some of my relatives), but now they almost all support Assad. Syrian Christians blame the destruction of Syria and their community not only on pro-Israeli states like the US and Britain, but also Gulf Arab States. Trump is hated more than Obama by Syrian Christians  for bombing Syria. In Lebanon, right wing Christians have traditionally supported US foreign policy. But, since 2005, for the first time in Lebanon's history you have the largest Christian party Aoun's FPM, not only allied with Hezbollah who the US calls "terrorist", but is allied with the Syrian and Iranian regimes. Also, since 2005, the "M14" Christians have supported the US (except for US support of Israel), but have been MORE critical of Trump because of his relations with Russia. Russia has supported Assad and Iran, who "M14" Christians oppose. In Egypt, the situation of Egyptian Christians started to go bad when Egypt became an ally of the US after Nasser's death and Sadat became president who he helped strengthen the Ikhwan. The only thing Trump has done since he became president was cut American aid to Egypt, which indirectly hurts the Egyptian people, Muslims AND Christians. In Palestine, Palestinian Christians have been ethnically cleansed and colonized no differently than Palestinian Muslims. Trump is surrounded by more extremist Zionist Americans...who want to even more persecute Palestinians...Muslims and CHRISTIANS."  Of course, we can't generalize on all communities but there are some valid points: I know from the Assyrian community in Central Valley in California that what Alfred is saying is true--whether you like it or not--that many of them in fact supported Saddam and many now support Asad in Syria out of fear of the alternatives.

France has faced worst wine grape harvest since 1945 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Wine production could fall  after spring frosts ravage vines, but hot summer could deliver top vintages.

France is expecting its poorest wine grape harvest since 1945 after an unusually mild March and a frosty April, experts have said, although the hot summer promises to deliver excellent quality.

At harvests everywhere, in places where we thought there would be a little less, theres a lot less, Jrme Despey, head of a governmental wine advisory board, said on Friday. This years harvest will be the smallest since 1945, he told a news conference.

The French agriculture ministry said output was expected to total 37.2m hectolitres 18% less than 2016 and 17% below the average over the past five years. The 2016 harvest had been one of the poorest in 30 years.

Despey said the ministry figures were based on assessments made in early August, before the start of the harvests, which have now begun in the south-east about two weeks earlier than usual.

The 6 Best Weight Loss Tips "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The 6 Best Weight Loss Tips | diet | General Health Special Interests

There are many benefits to having a healthy body weight, but the path to there can be a real struggle. Many people are puzzled as to why they gain weight, and evidence shows its hard to get started and even harder to maintain that success. There are so many different factors involved that what works for one person might not work for another. [1] But, with the right strategy, healthy weight loss can be successfully accomplished.

6 Weight Loss Tips You Need

Many weight loss products and procedures on the market dont work and cant even be called a quick fix. Here are some natural approaches to weight loss that are far more likely to provide sustaining results.

1. Get Motivated

A recent study looked at how motivation could be one of the biggest things when sticking with weight loss programs. Somewhere between the start of a program and the four-week mark, most people see a spike in motivation, and those feelings can continue for up to 16 weeks if there is at least a 5% weight loss. [2] So, whatever it takes, get motivated and stay that way!

2. Keep a Food Diary

One way to keep that motivation going is to keep a food diary; one study even suggests that it can double your weight loss results. [...

Table Talk No. 7 Keeping the Long View and Being our own Best Hope: "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

An Unrelenting Remembrance

by Kevin D. Annett

 Image result for kevin annett smiling

No one can prevent you from living in accordance with your own nature; therefore what is sacred lies within your own mind and its capacity to direct your life according to justice and integrity. Marcus Aurelius, Meditations

Someone asked me the other day whether I mind all the smears and slagging Ive taken in the Canadian media. Why should I? came my reply. I was first attacked as a public enemy by the Vancouver press when I was only seventeen.

Forty five years later, I cherish how early in my life I learned of the power of the Establishment to fabricate hysteria, lies and mud slinging and of my own capacity to overcome all of it. That knowledge is part of my inner ballast whenever the panic and madness of those around me threatens to overwhelm my little ship.

None of what we endure today is new. Any genuine radical who understands their own experience over a lifetime can recognize how completely vulnerable are the Powers That Be Not to the simplest act of defiance by any of us. I first learned that up close as a teenager when I made the headlines and earned the hatred of many simply by trying to democratize the public school system against every vested interest in sight.

I relate some of this voyage of discovery in my autobiography Unrelenting: Between Sodom and Zion. (Amazon, 2016) I re-read it last night and recalled like a warm wave in my guts the shining truth that I have always been my own rock and foundation, and thereby have remained unfailing and endured. As much as I love creations mystery and what some call God, I have always felt that divinity is as close to me as the pulse of my own compassion and the reach of my integrity. Otherwise, how can it be real?

Such soulful self-reliance is a difficult idea for many of todays prospective freedom fighters who lack the courage that comes from knowi...

LG Electronics is Opening a Factory in Michigan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Fox News is reporting that LG will be opening a new plant in Detroit:

LG Electronics said Tuesday it will spend $25 million to open a U.S. plant for manufacturing electric vehicle components.

The 250,000-square-foot building is located in Hazel Park, Michigan, a suburb of Detroit. When it opens next year, the plant will create at least 292 jobs in Hazel Park and an expanded research and development center in nearby Troy.

The Michigan government is providing a four-year, $2.9 million capital grant for the project.

[...] LG said vehicle components are the company's fastest-growing business. Auto-related revenue jumped 43% year-over-year to $1.5 billion during the first half of 2017, driven by LG's supplier agreement with General Motors (GM) for the new Chevrolet Bolt electric vehicle.

[...] In addition to the Michigan facility, LG expects to begin construction soon on a $250 million factory for washing machines in Clarksville, Tennessee. The production plant will create 600 new jobs by 2019, according to LG. The company is also building a new North American headquarters down the road from its current offices in Englewood Cliffs, N.J. The project will cost $300 million.

In countries that were under French colonial rule, such as Lebanon and Tunisia, laws like Article 308 are a direct hangover."

Loving the Bollard: Turnbulls Anti-Terror Tool Kit "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

It has been a week of bollards.  And defence barriers.  And hedges and vegetation. No, not the radio garden hour, or the herbaceous borders special featured on prime time television, delivered by a bearded man with a facial forest so vast it could regenerate several lost species.

This is the anti-terrorist flick of the week, and given that Australias Turnbull government is nearing its next blow, awaiting another stroke in the aftermath of the citizenship crisis, a suitably urgent package filled with alarmist goodies to distract the public was in the offing.

The Prime Minister was grave in his August 20 statement introducing the toolkit to reduce terrorist threats, part of an investigation solicited last year after the carnage witnessed in Nice along the Promenade des Anglais.  As we have seen from tragic events in Paris, London, Berlin and Barcelona, terrorists continue to target crowded places.

With each murderous adventure, often culminating in the shooting death of the perpetrator, the security doyens are asked what can be done.  The behind-closed doors approach varies between overexertion and inactivity. An entirely secure strategy would entail abolishing freedom of movement and basic civil liberties.  What matters for the public is the reassurance, the placebo effect.

The public face of such an approach must seem splendidly busy, putting more personnel on the streets, increasing awareness among members of the population, and getting various defences at the ready.

In Sydney, Turnbull made a special point of appearing in a manner that only gave the impression he was over-egging the pudding. (Is Australia waiting for its own variant of the Intifada?)  Alongside him were the New South Wales Minister for Police Troy Grant, the NSW Minister for Counter-Terrorism David Elliott, the Federal Police Commissioner Andrew Colvin, the NSW Police Commissioner Mick Fuller, and the Commonwealth Counter-Terrorism Coordinator Tony Sheehan.

The strategy, released last Sunday (always good to get people on their day of rest), emphasised the threat posed to areas frequented by the humble civilian: sports stadia; pedestrian malls; shopping centres.  Offenders with guns or knives or bombs or chemical devices are also a threat, its a full range of threats.  But what Nice demonstrated was the lethality of somebody using a truck in a crowded place.

A response fashioned on various structural and resilience measures was considered vital, including those traditional intrusions such as closed-circuit television.  (Surveillance always goes down well as a seller when attempting to foil the next attack.)  Importantly, Turnbull insists on casting the language differe...

SGA wants to turn its independent database of 1000+ chemical garden products into an App which shows their safety for all Australians and their environment including beneficial insects, birds, aquatic life, pets and other non-target organisms.  The database has been developed by volunteer chemists, biochemists and toxicologists.  NO FUNDS HAVE BEEN ASKED FOR OR ACCEPTED FROM PRODUCT MANUFACTURERS!

The world is awash with over 80,000 chemicals that humans manufactured!

In Australia many of the sprays and other products to control garden pests, weeds and diseases are potentially harmful some e.g. glyphosate the popular weed-killer, have been linked with diseases including cancer.

Chemical pollution is believed to play a significant role in the increase of species extinction rates.  Pyrethrum, a popular insecticide, harms many beneficial insects and widely sold neonicotinoid insecticides are believed to be responsible for declining honey bee populations.

Even many fertilisers are harmful through pollution of waterways and failure to improve soil structure.

The average gardener does not know how safe or risky these garden products are!

Limited information on product labels is hard to interpret and doesnt allow easy comparison with other products and we dont know how many chemicals have been rigorously tested and received detailed assessment.  Even worse, we know little about effects of accumulation of small amounts of a large number of chemicals.

At SGA we are going to make that information readily available so everyone can see which products are safe and which are risky.

Newsletter: As US Empire Fails, Trump Expands A Quagmire "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

By Kevin Zeese and Margaret Flowers for Popular Resistance. Many ask why are we still at war in Afghanistan: Osama bid Laden is dead, other alleged 9-11 attack attackers are caught or killed. This shows that calling Afghanistan the longest running Fake War in US history is right -- fake because it was never about terrorism but about business. If terrorism were the issue, Saudi Arabia would be the prime US enemy, but Saudi Arabia is also about business. We share the conclusion of human rights activist and Green vice presidential candidate in 2016 Ajamu Baraka who wrote for the Black Alliance for Peace that: "In an obscene testament to U.S. vanity and the psychopathological commitment to global white supremacy, billions have already been wasted, almost three thousand U.S. lives lost and over 100,000 dead. It is time to admit defeat in Afghanistan and bring the war to an end. Justice and common sense demand that the bloodletting stop."

The Scramble "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

She now refers to it as The Scramble
Five long, hard years stuck and lodged
between Grief and Depression
(They even taste differently)
Each passing day another dragging whiplash,
in slow motion, against the back
of your broken, shipwrecked soul.
There is no 999 call available for that emergency,
no rescue team a-coming,
its down to you and you alone in the end,
to get yourself up and on out of there.
But, thats easier said than done,
when youre having trouble
even crawling to the bathroom.
A slight shift occurred unexpectedly one day,
a break in the monotony of suffering.
The Sun peeked momentarily around
the DARK CLOUD she was nailed under.
Wearing fingers to the bone,
frothing at the mouth
and fighting every millimetre of the way,

Between the rivers "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Some rivers
wind through sand
some through stone
where stacks of books
slowly bear
the casual
fingering,
when students look
from valleys
still
to shelves high
from worn carpets
clutching papers
frayed.
Some rivers
are in the mind
they flow
from youth
to nights alone
where wind
wears down
the casual
lingering
in lines
that wait
for mornings
light.

The harrowing tale of the Demon of Spreyton "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In November 1682, Francis Fey was a 20-year-old servant in the service of Philip Furze, a landowner who lived in the little English village of Spreyton. One day, while in a field near his employer's house, Francis was puzzled to see Philip's father outside. The elder Furze was walking with his staff, and like the many moles he'd once whacked, had long been dead. Fortunately, Old Furze's ghost had no intention of whacking Francis. Instead, Furze had returned from the dead to sort out some problems with his will. He explained that two beneficiaries were each owed ten shillings, and a sister in the near-by town of Totnes was owed twenty. So long as all three beneficiaries got their money, Furze promised not to haunt Francis. Francis ran to the first two beneficiaries without any problems. Furze's sister in Totnes was a bit more difficult; she refused to take her share, suspecting it'd been sent by the Devil. That night, Furze appeared to Francis again, telling him to buy a ring worth twenty shillings. Furze's sister had no qualms with the ring, so Francis figured he was free and headed back home.

The great outer space LAND GRAB of the near future: Conflicts over space rock mining rights "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(Natural News) Space has become a veritable goldmine of natural resources for many companies, yet can anyone lay claim to them? Thats the question legal experts claim will become relevant in the future as firm turn to the stars for precious metals and minerals, and its one that also needs to be answered as soon as possible to avoid hostility between competing firms and countries.

Barry Kellman, law professor of space governance at DePaul University in Chicago, explained: There is a huge debate on whether companies can simply travel to space and extract its resources. There is no way to answer the question until someone does it.

According to one international treaty, this need not even be an issue. The Outer Space Treaty of 1967, formally known as the Treaty on Principles Governing the Activities of States in the Exploration and Use of Outer Space, Including the Moon and Other Celestial Bodies, has served as the main standard for sharing space. As per the 1967 treaty, no single country can claim national appropriation of celestial bodies by occupation or by other means. (Related: MINING just one large asteroid could COLLAPSE the world economy due to surge of new supply for valuable metals.)

Going Home "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I dont hear it so much anymore,
not until Carols iPod, set at random,
returns to it, never often enough, too often.

Years gone, I used to let it dream me
back to an afternoons visit to Spillville,
peaceful Iowa town that could be
anywhere peaceful and verdant,
where I like to imagine Dvorak first writing,
tentatively remembering and tapping
the lovely old tune at his piano keys
until the notes had become most of him,

and they both became parts of the New World,
and the new world that never was
until we need to visit it again through tears
and guiding painLike the tears we tried
to see through when that quietest part
of the symphony was played,
too often and never often enough after
our black September morn.

I think, hearing a young woman
just learning to play piano,
letting the tune lure her to a second of home
in a moment of new world,
his song might be our own new anthem,
the new quiet anthem from,
not for, our blood soaked old worlds
myriad worlds of careless conquest,
horse and warrior bleeding the plains
of their grains of dancing children,
nature we bear in the rigid bone

Some music we all need now
that no one can march to.

Drop It Like Its Hot (Topics) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Here is my climate,
changing by the moment,
swirling around a red center,
ready for release

Little slivers
of Lucys diamonds
started spilling
all over the floor
into puddles
stained with blood.

Shipped across the sea
seven days a week
to fleece the fools
on every front.

You can have all the jewels back
to bathe in blood,
along with (most of) your greed.

I just want a million or two (for now).

This is
the most sacred moment,
resting between
the beats of your heart
after the lungs
have already expired.

Let me see you smile
(this is me begging)
one last time
(and pleading)
so I can remember you
(and praying)
three years later
(and screaming)
as the same man
(and howling)
that I knew all that time before
(at the sun/as your son).

The future has come
whether youre ready or not,
firing at will,
regardless of Gods wishes.

Humanity,
in all its infinite wisdom,
freely decided long ago
to burn
this building down.

Thats why were here,
carrying a pail of water,
as the new age cycles
with a promise of peace on earth
(for those who truly seek it).

Seventy Years Of Freedom "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mother, seventy
years of freedom
have shackled the
house that you made
with the British furniture
I steadfastly tie them
with a nations manacles
Even as the yellow house
grew, the nation shrunk
into cavernous hollows
of windswept children
sunken eyes
stained teeth
cadavers
a nation brought primordial
urge of death
now I swallow all symbols
of oppression, forget them
to be caught in the cross fire
of a nations freedom.
Seventy years is a long time
I passed only sixty in this nation
whirling into torrid seas
of seas bludgeoned with
blood, and grime
of people who do not understand
these seventy hears of slow, slow time.

First Do No Harm: An Uncle Cut from the Cloth Salving Apollo "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

hands, cloistered for healing
perfection of stitch and scalpel
touching skin, homing in on disease
healers come as shaman, midwife,
child protector, word toucher,
poet, or physician ee cummings:

A wind has blown the rain away
and blown the sky away and all the leaves away
and the trees stand
I think, I too,
have known autumn too long

birth in 1925, burials for pandemics
healers as barbers, leeches-blood letting
boy John tethered to catechism, phlegmatic
priests condemning woman to birth
cash cow of religion, boy learned
mind is temple, holy logic
critical thinking like angelic rays

the folly of 60-year-old nephew,
now, sending uncle to great
thermal dynamics of entropy,
regeneration, heart of John
I learned this burl of age
now passing conversations
man with four children
wife a healer, too

uncanny life held to patients
members of web, patience, community
East Coast, New Jersey
both man and woman daily
sharing diagnosticians help
pushing individual fear
through old time medicine

my Uncle John, no longer
cooper of his given name
he burned candle both ends
still found laughter with children
fondness: boy and three girls, tumbling
into life, my uncle, at forty, wizened
my small life always cleaved by respect
elders my kin, even political antithesis, kinship
uncle brought specialized language
to my life undertow
of learning another mans passion

post-World War One, a beckoning in America
boy turned teenager, his first love
faithfully broaching ideas, conceptualizations
flipped into precision, words two millennial
behind, now, corrupted medicine, my uncle
predicted storms, swept seas, upheaval
he stayed true:

I swear by Apollo the physician
and Asclepius, and Hygieia and Panacea
and all the gods and goddesses as my witnesses
that, according to my ability and judgement
I will keep this Oath and this contract

Hippocrates empathy, books, learning
floating through massive devolutions
country turned to shekels and oil
country doctor no dishonor
Uncle John touched lives, healers love

our memory floating in between

A Youthful Void "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I yelled like the city,
heavy burdened with weight
like the shoulders of Atlas.

I tried to severe the strings,
the threads that entangled identity.
I lived in each moment
a passive bystander,
active in lacking courage
to voice myself.
I fell victim to the taunting
tongues of teens,
measuring my worth
with their words.
I sauntered with open palms
begging for friendship
cringing inward
at the sight of rejection.

I yelled like the city,
heavy burdened with weight
like the shoulders of Atlas.

The wolves came,
they outnumbered me,
so I put on my wolf flesh,
cleaving to the breath
of belonging.
I settled for silence,
becoming a shell,
a seed without soil searching
for a place to grow,
but all I found was a barren land
of crowded streets.

I yelled like the city,
heavy burdened with weight
like the shoulders of Atlas.

Unsettled in my cloak,
I sought to rid myself
of the facade,

shedding self-pity
I yelled like the city,
descending into the den
to ascend like a god.

That fawn
would be
like love
only leveling some field
with hope on my breath
old bones
around the root of the body
gone wrong
and my teeter god dazed
yes, heaven is a vanity event
the feathers cut more than skin
collect memories
in nondescript jars
angry fathers smashed when we were young
and yet I want to lay at your mercy
hand upon me
let it pool up beneath strewn Polaroids
this gift of not being I wager the fawn is more than metaphor
motel light, carbon footprints
in snow
I copy your dark into my hope
but the dust that I earned
pulled from my pockets
like earth
my knees, my heart, my muscles filled up with scars
signals over the hill
when I cant sleep
I pray into my window
more flawed than Gaia
I dont speak words
I stutter
and I lean hard

Chaffetz Drops Bomb on Democrats and Wasserman Schultz: Imran Awan Was Not a Lone Operator (VIDEO) "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

IT specialist Imran Awan worked for Debbie Wasserman Schultz for thirteen years since she was first elected to national office in 2004 as a Florida representative.

She only fired him after he was arrested and would have kept paying her IT expert even after he fled to Pakistan.

The Awan brothers IT ring had access to emails and computer data from an estimated 800 lawmakers and staffers.

Three Pakistani brothers who managed the IT affairs for several Democratic government officials were relieved of their duties in February on suspicion that they accessed specific computer networks without permission, also known as hacking.

Imran Awan, who started working for Wasserman Schultz in 2005, received $164,600 in 2016, with close to $20,000 of that coming from Wasserman Schultz.

His brother Jamal, who started working as a staffer in 2014, was paid $157,350.12 in 2016. Abid, who started working in 2005, was paid $160,943 in 2016.

Imrans wife, Hina Alvi, who was employed as a staffer since February 2007, was paid 168,300 in 2016. Rao Abbas was paid $85,049 in 2016.

Abid, Imran, and Jamal Awan were barred from computer networks at the House of Representatives in February.

Most of the House Members fired the Awans subsequently.
Only Debbie Wasserman Schultz kept Imran Awan on the pay roll up to the day he got arrest for Bank Fraud after trying to flee the country.

The rest of the family fled since months to Pakistan along with hundreds of thousands of tax-payer money they mysteriously were able to wire.

Democrats were willing or unwillingly compromised by the Awans and Sensitive Information leaked to foreign Enemies!  (Muslim Brotherhood Yemen Raid with dead soldier for example?) Many of them have Seats on Committees that handle highly sensitive information.

According to Redditt Imran Awan is now released with an GPS ankle monitor until his preliminary hearing on Aug. 21....

MANILA, Philippines President Rodrigo Duterte on Sunday called on Filipinos to uphold the rule of law as his crackdown on illegal drugs faces sharp criticism over the death of Kian delos Santos, the 17-year-old boy whom witnesses claimed was executed by policemen.

In his message for National Heroes Day, Duterte said Filipinos can honor those who fought for the countrys independence by upholding the rule of law and emulating their virtues.

We are forever grateful for their noble deeds and sacrifice. Let us honor them by upholding the rule of law, protecting our nation and fostering goodwill among ourselves, the president said.

We will harness the same virtues as we continue to fight against lawlessness, criminality and poverty that hinder us from achieving our full potential, he added.

Thousands of Water Rescues Underway as Catastrophic Flooding Hits Houston "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(ANTIMEDIA)  After evolving into a Category 4 storm from a tropical depression in only 56 hours, Hurricane Harvey made landfall Friday night near Rockford, Texas, where it stalled for hours, unleashing sustained winds of over 140 mph, along with torrential rain. As the storm inched onto land, it slowly reduced in intensity, but with the decrease in wind speed came an increase in rainfall.

Overnight Saturday into Sunday morning, the worst case scenario rainfall projections suddenly appeared to be coming true. Houston and the surrounding areas were taking on water at a rate of six inches an hour. Catastrophic rainfall amounts are estimated to end up as high as 50 inches in some areas.

Live feed from Houston:

 

As night fell, Houstons roadways began rapidly taking on water, stranding drivers in their cars and residents in their homes. Around midnight, the National Weather Service and local Houston authorities urged residents to stay in their homes and avoid all travel, referring to the flooding potential as both epic and catastrophic.

Rescue teams were overwhelmed with too many emergency calls to respond to each one and had to prioritize life-and-death situations.

Its catastrophic, unprecedented, epic whatever adjective you want to use, a National Weather Service meteorologist, told the Houston Chronicle. Its pretty horrible right now....

Why are refugee/resettlement Jihadis guarding some of Americas most sensitive infrastructure? We are about ready to find out.

I was among the very first to report the real truth about the events related to Benghazi and the quality of my sources put me months ahead of the vast majority of the Independent Media. I am not bragging, I am emphasizing that these same sources of intelligence information are telling me, in unison, that the United States is facing a TET Offensive style of terrorist attacks inside of our country.

The TET Offensive

Readers may recall that in 1968, after the LBJ administration was repeatedly telling the American people that we were winning the Vietnam War, until the Viet Cong attacked every single capital, in every single South Vietnamese province. Even the US embassy in Saigon was momentarily captured. This was the turning point of the Vietnam War. My sources have compared whats coming to the TET offensive. According to these deep-cover sources, as well as on-the-record sources, gun-free zones will be targeted (e.g. athletic events, concerts, schools, malls and university campuses. DHS knows it and the FBI knows it, and now you know it.

Of course this will lead to the imposition of martial law practices without a formal declaration of martial law. These policies will include gun confiscation, the execution of gun owners who do not surrender their guns following an executive decree. I do not anticipate that Trump will be the one giving that order. The policies also call for the enforcement of sanctions against people who are on various lists. No, not the No-Fly lists, but for people who are on the Red and the Blue Lists. These are the very same lists that Steve Quayle has been warning...

50 U.S. spies say ISIS intelligence was cooked for political purposes "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

'A cancer within' More than 50 intelligence analysts working out of the U.S. military's Central Command have formally complained that their reports on ISIS and al Qaeda's branch in Syria were being inappropriately altered by senior officials, The Daily Beast has learned. The complaints spurred the Pentagon's inspector general to open an investigation into the alleged manipulation of intelligence. The fact that so many people complained suggests there are deep-rooted, systemic problems in how the U.S. military command charged with the war against the self-proclaimed Islamic State assesses intelligence. "The cancer was within the senior level of the intelligence command," one defense official said. Two senior analysts at CENTCOM signed a written complaint sent to the Defense Department inspector general in July alleging that the reports, some of which were briefed to President Obama, portrayed the terror groups as weaker than the analysts believe they are. The reports were changed by CENTCOM higher-ups to adhere to the administration's public line that the U.S. is winning the battle against ISIS and al Nusra, al Qaeda's branch in Syria, the analysts claim. That complaint was supported by 50 other analysts, some of whom have complained about politicizing of intelligence reports for months.

Profits: What do bombs, Bibi, Bezos and business have in common? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

From somewhere in deep space keen alien observers poke elbows and giggle over the state of humanity on Earth. One tiny nation's hidden leadership pulling powerful titanium stings to cause ongoing crisis for billions of people, the idiocy of rule by the 0.1% must befuddle even big brained beings from Andromeda. ISIL, Putin the archvillain, Trump, a man nicknamed Bibi, George Soros and other evil oligarchs, will humankind ever break free? I read this morning the headline from the Jerusalem Post "Netanyahu to Warn Putin Not to Cross Red Lines" and rolled my eyes. As a southern boy from America's South, I could not help asking myself the question; "How is it this tiny piss ant nation emerged to direct on the world stage?" Looking at Israel from a rational point of view, is all the western world's money, media, investment, and propaganda really that powerful? Clearly it is, for the rivers of blood and the blinding chaos coming out of the Middle East never seem to either stain or darken Zion. At the behest of the Israeli lobby, Russia gets rolled into a trio of "enemies" the US Congress and our president rubber stamped. Washington insiders tell me the AIPAC lobby twisted every arm on Capital Hill to sanction Russia, Iran, and North Korea in one fell swoop. But I ponder the inability of my fellow humans to spot the blatantly obvious. These wars and crises around the world serve only two purposes. First and foremost, profit buys the perpetrators political and economic leverage. Secondly, Israel (and a few other nations) strengthen their own validity and security, while undermining that of neighbors and adversaries.

CNN's dirty deeds: Fake news network has no defense for labeling 63 million Americans 'white supremacists by default' "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

CNN has made no attempt to retract or modify a Wednesday report that calls all supporters of President Donald Trump "white supremacists by default." The report stakes its weighty claims about the moral character of Trump supporters on the word of "activists, historians and victims of extremism," who argue that "ordinary people" have empowered white supremacists. (RELATED:CNN: Everyone Who Voted For Trump Is A 'White Supremacist By Default') "It's easy to focus on the angry white men in paramilitary gear who looked like they were mobilizing for a race war in the Virginia college town," the report reads. "But it's the ordinary people - the voters who elected a reality TV star with a record of making racially insensitive comments, the people who move out of the neighborhood when people of color move in, the family members who ignore a relative's anti-Semitism - who give these type of men room to operate." The Daily Caller News Foundation received no response after contacting multiple CNN public relations employees, politics editors and the writer who authored the report, to inquire as to whether the network stands by the story.

Since the beginning of the Libyan uprising and especially with the military intervention that led to the fall of Muammar Gaddafi, Libya has become a ghost haunting any discussion of internationalism in Syria, and as primary evidence of western conspiracies for regime change. While much is discussed about Syria, very little has been heard from Libyans and Libya outside of the simplified dichotomy that we see in mainstream media. While indeed part of the story of Syria is located in Libya, the latters story is crucial to be told for its own sake.  

NAWA seeks to provide a deeper look into Libya by inviting Libyan writers, and readers to submit their thoughts, articles and pitches but also their reading recommendations to us. Though many foreigners have studied and written on Libya, we aim to bolster the voice and experience of Libyans for this series.

Our focus will be on the call for and the aftermath of intervention. How has the Libyan uprising altered internationalism and what is happening in Libya in the aftermath of the intervention?

You get out of bed and your coordination is whacky, perhaps you walk into the wall, or trip over. Then you spill your morning coffee or smoothie, lose the car keys and forget that important work document.

Who actually benefits from American-led wars across the globe? The aftermath of American-led conflicts shows it is not the common people, though the military and politicians vow they are liberating and protecting them. The Sunday Mail, Zimbabwe's "leading family newspaper," has published accounts of a number of Libyans who expressed regret over Muammar Gaddafi's overthrow in 2011, despite the fact some of them even took up arms against him. As one said: "'I joined the revolution in the first days and fought against Gaddafi,' former revolutionary fighter Mohammed, 31, said from the southern city of Murzuq. 'Before 2011, I hated Gaddafi more than anyone. But now, life is much, much harder, and I have become his biggest fan.'"

US Dismisses UN Plea: Wont Stop Bombing Civilians in Syria "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(ANTIWAR.COM)  The soaring civilian death toll from US airstrikes against the ISIS capital city of Raqqa has gotten so bad that yesterday, it actually fueled a statement from the United Nations requesting the US pause their airstrikes to allow more civilians to flee the city.

US officials are rejecting this call, however, with Special Envoy Brett McGurk insisting that the war against ISIS is going very well, and that the number one thing that we have to do to to help civilians in Raqqa is continue the war and defeat ISIS outright.

McGurk went on to say that President Trump is focused like a laser destroying ISIS, and that the war is going well, but that they will take the United Nations call to pause the strikes under advisement. Its clear, however, they arent taking the call seriously.

Thats unsurprising, as the Pentagon has gone out of their way to downplay the huge civilian toll of their ISIS air war, and appears to be confident that they can continue to mislead everyone about the number of people actually being killed in their strikes long enough to defeat ISIS outright.

Atomic blondes have more fury "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

My wife and I went on a date last night and saw Atomic Blonde. She enjoyed it it was the late showing, and she has a tendency to nod off in the theater if theres any slack in the pacing, but she was bolt upright and wide awake the whole time and I liked the twisty spy novel plot and shady characters with underhanded schemes. But two major questions were unresolved.

  1. If Lorraine Broughton and John Wick got in a fight, how high would the body count be? Note that Im not asking who would win, because we all know they would both emerge bloody and battered but victorious, but how much havoc would be wreaked upon assorted minions, passers-by, and crime/spy chiefs? I give the edge to John right now, but only because hes had two movies and more practice. Lorraine needs a sequel to even it up.

  2. How much did German rent-a-thugs get paid? It cant have been more than the equivalent of $50K/year, right? Maybe bump it up a bit if they get some kind of hazard bonus, and maybe theyre better off than that with fantastic free healthcare (they need it), but whatever it was, it couldnt account for the knock-down-drag-out fights they were getting into. Fierce woman charges into a guy, punches him so hard he flies up against a wall; he draws a knife and launches himself into her, she disarms him, stabs him hard in the back, stabs him a few more times in the chest, and he staggers back; he lurches forward again, wham-bam-wham, she pounds him in the face; he reaches for a gun, she throws him down the stairs. Whats his motivation? I mean, if it were me, at the first punch Id be thinking to myself Im going to be laid up for a week, its going to take more than a couple of ibuprofens to get over this, Im not getting paid enough for this crap, I think Ill just take a little nap right here. Heck, just the look on Charlize Therons determined angry face would have me backing up and saying Lady, you win. But they kept coming!

Its a very angry movie, and I needed that. Its also stylish and has a great soundtrack, if you like 80s music. For some reason, Theron reminded me of Iris I recommend that no one or no thing pick a fight with her.

Mystery Codes Appear in Pirate Mayweather v McGregor Streams "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

For many hardcore boxing fans, it was the fight that should never have taken place. But last night, undefeated legend Floyd Mayweather stepped into the ring against UFC lightweight champion and supposed boxing novice, Conor McGregor.

A known slow starter, Mayweather came out true to form, arguably losing the first three rounds to the brash Irishman who had previously promised to bounce the 40-year-olds head off the canvas in round one. But by round 10 it was all over, with McGregor running out of gas and with no answer to Mayweathers increasingly vicious punches. TKO Mayweather.

While viewing figures wont be in for some time, the event is likely to have been a massive PPV success all over the world, with millions tuning in for what turned out to be a value-for-money event. But despite widespread availability, its likely that hundreds of thousands maybe even millions tuned into the fight from unofficial sources. Interestingly, some of those had a little extra something thrown in for free.

During the fight, TF received an unsubstantiated report that an unusual watermark was being embedded into streams originally broadcast by Sky Box Office in the UK. The message we received simply told us there were codes on the screen, but we were unable to get any further information from the source who had already gone offline.

Quick inquiries with two other sources watching pirate streams confirmed that codes had appeared on their screens too. One managed to take a series of photographs which are included below. (Note: portions of the code are redacted to protect the source)

The mystery sequence of numbers

The letter and number combinations briefly appeared in 20 to 23 sets of pairs, which according to the images seen by TF stayed the same throughout the broadcast. It is possible there was some variation but nothing weve seen suggests that. The big question, of course, is why they were put there and by whom.

According to our sources, these codes didnt appear when the main action was taking place but when the camera turned to people in each corner. Since no digits appeared over the top of the fight itself, it might suggest that they were put there by a broadcaster, in this instance Sky Box Office, who were licensed to show the fight in the UK.

If that was indeed the case, its certainly possible that the sequence of nu...

Slate:

Trumps Pardon of Joe Arpaio Is an Impeachable Offense

....Trumps defenders will ask how a president can be impeached merely for exercising a power he undeniably possesses. But this question turns the constitutional function of impeachment on its head.

The founders included in the Constitution a congressional power to impeach presidents primarily to respond to misuse by the president of express or implied powers given him elsewhere in the document.

....to the founders, the main point of impeachment was that there must be a remedy when a president perverts the powers of his office, either for personal or political self-aggrandizement or, regardless of motive, when the presidents acts threaten the proper distribution of authority among the coordinate branches or otherwise offend either law or fundamental governing norms.

Some things worth adding:
  • The term "high crimes and misdemeanors" in the Constitution is broader than doing something technically illegal, it refers to a gross abuse of office. It doesn't matter how unlimited the pardon power is, it is still limited by the impeachment power to remedy and prevent further abuse of office.
  • Pardons normally occur despite the petitioner's crime, done in light of the other good works and redeeming features of the pardoned person. Trump didn't pardon Arpaio despite Arpaio's illegal activities, he pardoned Arpaio because of Trump's support for Arpaio's illegal defiance of court orders directing him to stop racially profiling people. While the official statement glosses over this, Trump himself is very clear, indicating this week that he planned to pardon Arpaio because Trump viewed the illegal activities as Arpaio "doing his job."

BJP Bhagao, Desh Bachao Rally: Is the Oppositions Show of Unity Too Little Too Late? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

New Delhi: The BJP Bhagao, Desh Bachao rally, called by the Lalu Prasad Yadav-led Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) in Patna on Sunday, had assumed great significance, especially after the Mahagathbandhan government in Bihar, comprising the RJD and Janata Dal (United), collapsed last month. Projected to showcase opposition strength in the face of that debacle, it was the first such gathering of various political parties and their supporters. The grand call to oust the BJP and save the country at a time when the saffron party is in power in all the north Indian states, except Himachal Pradesh, Delhi and Punjab, was not only viewed as gutsy but also one of the the first serious attempts to launch a full-scale spirited attack on the National Democratic Alliance (NDA), which has been profiting from a disarrayed opposition.

Labour wants to keep UK in single market in Brexit transition "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP | Labours Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer says his party wants a transitional deal letting Britain stay in the EU customs union after Brexit

LONDON (AFP)  In a major policy shift, Britains main opposition Labour party now backs staying in the European single market for a transitional period as the country leaves the EU.

Labour would seek a transitional deal that maintains the same basic terms that we currently enjoy with the EU, Keir Starmer, the partys Brexit spokesman, wrote in The Observer newspaper on Sunday.

That means we would seek to remain in a customs union with the EU and within the single market during this period. It means we would abide by the common rules of both, he said, meaning unimpeded immigration from the EU could continue.

The comments represent a major policy shift for Labour, which had previously been ambiguous on whether it would seek to retain single market and customs union membership, arguing only that it wanted a jobs-first Brexit.

Labour are in a powerful position after making strong gains in Junes general election, stripping Prime Minister Theresa Mays Conservatives of their majority in parliament and forcing them to make a deal with Northern Irelands Democratic Unionist Party to govern.

As Starmer unveiled Labours new approach, a government source said the European Union should not drag its feet in negotiating Brexit.

Both sides must be flexible and willing to compromise when it comes to solving areas where we disagree, the source said.

As the EU itself has said, the clock is ticking so neither side should drag its feet, the source added, just days ahead of a fresh round of UK-EU divorce talks in Brussels.

In a statement, the governments Brexit ministry also called for the European Commission to be more flexible, as British negotiators push for talks on future trade ties.

Last month, it announced that Britain would try to keep as many aspects of its EU membership in place as possible during a transition period of up to three years.

Many things will look similar and goods will continue to flow between Britain and the EU in much the same way as they do now, even after the scheduled departure date of March 2019, Philip Hammond, Britains finance minister, said at the time.

But he also said that EU nationals would have to register with the authorities....

How ExxonMobil Corporation misled the public about climate science "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

ExxonMobil is under threat of litigation by the attorneys general of several states that they violated, variously, racketeering, consumer protection, or investor protection statutes through their communications regarding anthropogenic global warming (AGW), as stated by Geoffrey Supran and Naomi Oreskes in their paper Assessing ExxonMobils climate change communications (19772014) that appeared in the August 23, 2017 issue of Environmental Research Letters (vol. 12 (2017) 084019). Supran and Oreskes show that the internal ExxonMobil documents and research supported and done by ExxonMobil largely supported the scientific consensus on human-caused climate change while their public stance was largely at odds with it.

In the abstract of the paper they describe how the research done by ExxonMobil differed from what they publicly said.

In all four cases, we find that as documents become more publicly accessible, they increasingly communicate doubt. This discrepancy is most pronounced between advertorials and all other documents. For example, accounting for expressions of reasonable doubt, 83% of peer-reviewed papers and 80% of internal documents acknowledge that climate change is real and human-caused, yet only 12% of advertorials do so, with 81% instead expressing doubt. We conclude that ExxonMobil contributed to advancing climate scienceby way of its scientists academic publicationsbut promoted doubt about it in advertorials. Given this discrepancy, we conclude that ExxonMobil misled the public.

In the discussion section of the paper, they explain clearly what ExxonMobil is guilty of concerning anthropogenic global warming.

The question we have addressed in this study is not whether ExxonMobil suppressed climate change research, withheld it, or sought to hide it, which is how ExxonMobil has glossed the allegations against it. This is also how the allegations have occasionally been presented in the press. Our assessment of ExxonMobils peer-reviewed publications and the role of its scientists supports the conclusion that the company did not suppress climate scienceindeed, it contributed to it.

However, on the question of whether ExxonMobil misled non-scientific audiences about climate science, our analysis supports the conclusion that it did. This conclusion is based on three factors: discrepancies in AGW communications between document categories; imbalance in impact of different document categories; and factual mispresentations in some advertorials.

Katherine Hayhoe, professor and director of the Climate Science Center at Texas Tech University, was at one time funded by ExxonMobil and......

Confederate Statues and Public Gentility "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Despite all the media anger over Confederate monuments and the parade of Republicans calling for their removal, the people are not all on board. The latest polling:
  • A strong majority (62 percent) of Americans favor leaving the Confederate statues standing as historical markers
  • Overwhelming numbers of Republicans (86 percent) favor this, as do 61 percent of Independents
  • The only group with a majority favoring removal (57 percent) are Strong Democrats as opposed to Soft Democrats, who slightly favor keeping them (52 percent)
  • Unsurprisingly, the Northeast is the region of the country most in favor of removing the statues but even there, a majority (53 percent) backs leaving the statues standing
  • Heres a stunner: 44 percent of African-Americans polled believe in keeping the statues standing. Of Latinos, 65 percent believe the statues should remain
  • Comfortable majorities no less than 60 percent in each age cohort support the statues

Now maybe you think that 62 percent of Americans are racists, including 44 percent of black Americans, but I don't. Nor do I think this has much to do with memorializing the Confederacy I doubt 62 percent of Americans could tell you the first thing about the Civil War or states' rights or anything else that smacks of politics.

Brain Wave Warping Effect Of Mobile Phones, Study Reveals (VIDEO) | nerve-cell-neurons-brain-cells | General Health Multimedia Science & Technology Sleuth Journal Special Interests

Your mobile phone is not only a carcinogenic, radiation emitting device, but may alter the structure and function of the brain, including brain wave activity that is intimately connected to cognition, mood and behavior.  

A concerning new clinical study published in PLoS One titled, EEG Changes Due to Experimentally Induced 3G Mobile Phone Radiation, has revealed that so-called 3rd generation (3G) cell phone technology has widespread brain wave disrupting activity in subjects exposed to real-world like conditions, i.e. 15-minute talk time exposure to the ear area.

The study abstract describes the experimental design and results:

The aim of this study was to investigate whether a 15-minute placement of a 3G dialing mobile phone causes direct changes in EEG activity compared to the placement of a sham phone. Furthermore, it was investigated whether placement of the mobile phone on the ear or the heart would result in different outcomes. Thirty-one healthy females participated. All subjects were measured twice: on one of the two days the mobile phone was attached to the ear, the other day to the chest. In this single-blind, cross-over design, assessments in the sham phone condition were conducted directly preceding and following the mobile phone exposure. During each assessment, EEG activity and radiofrequency radiation were recorded jointly. Delta, theta, alpha, slow beta, fast beta, and gamma activity was computed. The association between radiation exposure and the EEG was tested using multilevel random regression analyses with radiation as predictor of m...

3D Printer Tool Changer Gives You Access to Lots of Extruders "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The benefits of having a 3D printer with multiple extruders are numerous: you can print soluble support material for easy removal, print a combination of flexible and rigid filament, or simply print in different colors. Unfortunately, traditional multi-extruder setups have some serious drawbacks, even aside from the cost.

Usually, the extruders are all mounted next to each other on a single carriage. This increases the mass, which can cause print quality issues like shadowing. It also reduces the printable area, as each extruder needs to be able to reach the entire area. All of this means that the design becomes more and more impractical with each extruder you add, and thats why its uncommon to see more than two extruders on a printer.

Over on Hackaday.io, [rolmie] has come up with a very practical (and affordable) solution to this problem. He has designed a tool changer that gives the printer the ability to switch out hot ends on the fly. The system is very similar to the tool changers we see on CNC machining centers: tools (the hotends) are stored on a rack, and a tool change in the G-code sends the carriage over to the rack to drop off the old hotend and pick up a new one.

The benefit of the design is that both the mass and volume of the carriage are kept to a minimum, while allowing you to use many different hot ends. Each hotends settings can be configured individually, and you can even use different models of hotend altogether (maybe one model works better for PLA, while another is better for ABS). The design is still in the prototyping stage and needs some refinement, but its a very promising proof of concept that seems like it could be implemented fairly easily into most 3D printer models.

In recent months, the issue of homelessness has become inescapable, with residents encountering more homelessness in their neighborhoods, according to the councilman, who represents the northwest San Fernando Valley. "There's not a conversation I have - whether it's fixing a street, trimming a tree, walking to school or going to a grocery store - where we don't talk about homelessness," he said.

Trumps Arpaio Comments Stoke Fear "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(HRW)  The impact of President Donald Trumps suggestion that he was going to pardon Joe Arpaio is palpable in Alamance County, North Carolina. As in Maricopa County, Arizona, where Arpaio was sheriff, the USDepartment of Justice investigated and eventually sued Alamance County Sheriff Terry Johnson in 2012, alleging racial profiling of Latinos. US Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) subsequently revoked its 287(g) agreement with the county, which deputized the sheriffs agents to assist ICE in enforcing federal immigration law. In 2015, a federal judge dismissed the lawsuit, but local residents continue to fear racial profiling and draconian immigration enforcement.

During my recent trip to Burlington, North Carolina, residents told me immigrants are doing everything they can to minimize their exposure to law enforcement. People are waiting until the last minute to see the doctor, said Blanca Nienhaus, a community advocate. Others reported that some undocumented immigrants, like others around the country, are reluctant to provide information when applying for Medicaid for their US citizen children or for prenatal benefits for which they are eligible.

People only drive out of necessity, another resident said to me. We need to feed our children.

During ICE arrests in January and February, community advocates said, some students stayed home from school. Martha Krall, a community advocate, noticed a lower rate of kindergarten registration among Latino families in a school known for its larger Latino population.

Antony Sutton, Skull&Bones, Hitler, the Bush family "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Antony Sutton, Skull&Bones, Hitler, the Bush family

by Jon Rappoport

August 27, 2017

The prodigious author and researcher, Antony Sutton (1925-2002), wrote about hidden men behind momentous events.

I recently came across a 1999 interview with Sutton, conducted by Kris Millegan, researcher and head of TrineDay publishers.

Millegan wrote about Antony Sutton in 1999: Antony C. Sutton, 74, has been persecuted but never prosecuted for his research and subsequent publishing of his findings. His mainstream career was shattered by his devotion towards uncovering the truth. In 1968, his Western Technology and Soviet Economic Development was published by The Hoover Institute at Stanford University. Sutton showed how the Soviet states technological and manufacturing base, which was then engaged in supplying the North Vietnamese the armaments and supplies to kill and wound American soldiers, was built by US firms and mostly paid for by the US taxpayers. From their largest steel and iron plant, to automobile manufacturing equipment, to precision ball-bearings and computers, basically the majority of the Soviets large industrial enterprises had been built with the United States help or technical assistance.

Then, someone sent Antony a membership list of Skull and Bones and a picture jumped out. And what a picture! A multigenerational foreign-based secret society with fingers in all kinds of pies and roots going back to Illuminati influences in 1830s Germany.

Here are excerpts from the 1999 interview:

Millegan Can you tell the story of how you learned of Skull & Bones? And how you felt?

Sutton I knew nothing of S&B until I received a letter in the early 80s asking if I would like to look at a genuine membership list. For no real reason I said yes. It was agreed to send the package by Federal Express and I could keep it for 24 hours, it had to be returned to the safe. It was a black bag job by a family member disgusted with their activities.

For the benefit of any S&B members who may read and doubt the statement; the membership list is in two volumes, black leather bound. Living members and deceased members in separate volumes. Very...

How do you say 'whoops' in Russian? Podesta Group admits lobbying for pro-Russian thinktank "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Podesta Group retroactively files more DOJ disclosures for pro-Putin work The Podesta Group belatedly filed several new disclosures with the Justice Department on Aug. 17 related to work the firm completed between 2012 and 2014 on behalf of a pro-Russia Ukrainian think tank. Back in April, the powerful Washington lobbying firm run by Clinton ally Tony Podesta filed a document admitting its work for the pro-Russia European Centre for a Modern Ukraine may have principally benefited a foreign government. New disclosures revealed dozens of previously unreported interactions the firm made with influential government offices, including Hillary Clinton's State Department and the office of former Vice President Joe Biden, while lobbying on behalf of the center. Embattled ex-Trump campaign manager Paul Manafort failed to disclose his extensive lobbying efforts on behalf of the center at the time as well. Anyone lobbying or doing public relations on behalf of foreign governments is required to register as a foreign agent in compliance with the Foreign Agents Registration Act. The Aug. 17 filings include short-form registration statements for six Podesta Group employees and an amendment to the firm's registration statement that includes a list of political contributions made by relevant employees throughout 2013.

One Simple Activity You Can Do To Feel Happier This Week "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

happiness

Happiness is fleeting for most, especially when we wake up to see the headlines in the news and scenarios playing out on the global stage.  But now, experts say there is one simple thing you can do to feel happier this week.

You can reduce the daily, mentally exhaustive grind by adding this one, simple, and brief task to your daily to-do list. According to Psychology Today, talking to old friends satisfies our deepest emotional needs for connectedness. Its not only that we feel more comfortable with them (which we do) but that they know how to make us feel good. At another level, old friends can also validate your sense of self. They accept you for who you are, flaws and all, and reinforce your own identity as a person who matters.

So simply, pick up your smartphone, and instead of using it to get into arguments on social media, or talk to people youll never actually meet, use it to call an old buddy and catch up without the digital screen as a distraction. Simply talking to another person, specifically, an old friend can boost your happiness for the entire week.

A strikingly low percentage (34%) of people actually use their smartphone for its original intent: making a phone call.  More than likely, many of us believe we are connecting with old friends because we are connected via social media. We also believe we are making new friends because we can see them and interact on social media platforms.  But often, there are no shared life experiences. Reading posts and seeing updates hardly ever satisfies a humans need for connectedness. Moreover, using texts or instant messages that lack tone and sincerity only exasperate the disconnection. Instead, we need the emotional connection that only comes through real interaction with them.

So here is the challenge: This coming week, spend a mere 15 minutes each day to reach out to at least one old friend by phone. It could really boost your happiness, according to psychologists.  The trick though is to actually use the phone function and call them.

Do not send a text message. Do not send a Facebook message. Do not send a Snap. Do not use any ot...

Conspiracy Theory: Governments deceive their peoples "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In the United States "conspiracy theory" is the name given to explanations that differ from those that serve the ruling oligarchy, the establishment or whatever we want to call those who set and control the agendas and the explanations that support the agendas. The explanations imposed on us by the ruling class are themselves conspiracy theories. Moreover, they are conspiracy theories designed to hide the real conspiracy that our rulers are operating. For example, the official explanation of 9/11 is a conspiracy theory. Some Muslims, mainly Saudi Arabians, delivered the greatest humiliation to a superpower since David slew Goliath. They outsmarted all 17 US intelligence agencies and those of NATO and Israel, the National Security Council, the Transportation Safety Administration, Air Traffic Control, and Dick Cheney, hijacked four US airliners on one morning, brought down three World Trade Center skyscrapers, destroyed that part of the Pentagon where research was underway into the missing $2.3 trillion, and caused the morons in Washington to blame Afghanistan instead of Saudi Arabia. Clearly, the Saudi Arabians who humiliated America were involved in a conspiracy to do so. Is it a believable conspiracy?

The Amsterdam police closed down part of Amstelstraat, near the Rembrandtplein, on Thursday morning after an item believed to be an explosive was found. An Explosive Ordnance Disposal team is investigating, NU.nl reports.

According to local broadcaster AT5, the explosive may be a hand grenade. It was found near the ABE nightclub.

At this stage the police believe it unnecessary to evacuate the area. How long the street will be closed is not yet clear.

The street closure is causing some problems with tram traffic. Lines 9 and 14 currently have to take a different route.

Amsterdam is going to take steps to better protect busy and internationally-important parts of the city from a terrorist attack in the wake of Barcelona and Turku, the citys mayor Eberhard van der Laan has told the city council. The entrances to the Kalverstraat, the busy pedestrian shopping street in the heart of the old city, is a prime example of a location where security measures would be taken, the mayor said, in a reversal of the citys position last week.

Schaueble, who will turn 75 on Sept. 18, has been finance minister since 2009 and a member of parliament since 1972.

Chancellor Angela Merkels conservative Christian Democrats are leading the centre-left Social Democrats (SPD) by about 15 percentage points in opinion polls and are the heavy favourites to retain power after the election.

Im not going to talk about whats going to happen after the election, Schaeuble said. He said he hoped to win his seat in parliament in the Offenburg district of Baden-Wuerttemberg state for a 13th straight time. He won 56 percent in 2013.

Well have to wait and see what the voters decide in four weeks, he added. And then well talk about who will take which position.

Schaeuble has nevertheless been talking at length in recent months about budget plans after the election. In July, he said in a radio interview there could be room to cut taxes by more than the 15 billion euros already announced.

South Africa poachers turning to elephants as rhinos wiped out in parts of Kruger "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Citizen

SANParks says with almost no rhinos left in the area, poachers are coming for the ivory.

The first sign of the crime scene was the tip of an elephants trunk lying in the grass; the second was the gag-inducing, sickly sweet smell of death; and the third was the buzzing of thousands of bluebottle flies taking off as South African National Parks (SANParks) environmental crime scene investigators approached.

Among them was Colonel Leonard Malatji, the former detective branch commander of Phalaborwa police station. When he retired, he started working for SANParks and yesterday in the Kruger National Park Vlakteplaats section, he was the lead investigator in a three-week old elephant poaching case.

About 50km north of the Tropic of Capricorn, deep inside a sealedoff section of Vlakteplaats lay the carcass. It was not much more than a bag of skin and bones with its face hacked off for its prized ivory tusks.

One field ranger, who may not be named to protect his identity, estimated the dead bull was between 30 and 40 years old. He would have had sizeable tusks. Malatji and his team prepared to do an autopsy on what was left of the pachyderm.

Ongoing Myanmar Clashes Leave 96 Dead "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

BANGKOK Myanmars government and advocates for the countrys Muslim Rohingya ethnic minority traded charges Sunday of killing civilians, burning down buildings and planting land mines, as clashes that began last week when insurgents launched attacks against police posts continued.

An announcement posted online by the office of the countrys leader, State Counsellor Aung San Suu Kyi, said the death toll from the violence that started Thursday night had reached 96, mostly alleged Rohingya attackers but also 12 security personnel. The announcement was the first by the government to list civilians among the dead six people identified as Hindu said to have been killed by the insurgents.

Myanmar is overwhelmingly Buddhist, but about 1 million Muslim Rohingya live in the northern part of Rakhine state, where the violence is taking place.

Advocates for the Rohingya suggest many more civilians have died in army attacks on villages, but they have not given a total. They also say the attacks have caused villagers to flee to the mountains for shelter or to try to cross the border into Bangladesh.

WHY Cant Trump Cut a DEAL with DPRK? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

The United States and South Korea are currently engaged in large-scale, joint-military war games that simulate an invasion of the North, the destruction of the DPRKs nuclear weapons sites, and a decapitation operation to take out the supreme leader, Kim Jong-un. The objective of the operation is to intensify tensions between North and South thereby justifying the continued US occupation of the peninsula and the permanent division of the country. Imagine if North Korea decided to conduct massive live fire military drills, accompanied by a Chinese naval flotilla, just three miles off the coast of California. And, lets say, they decided to send formations of strategic high-altitude aircraft loaded with nuclear bombs to fly along the Canada and Mexico borders while tens of thousands of combat troops accompanied by hundreds of tanks and armored vehicles rehearsed a shock and awe type blitz onto US territory where they would immediately crush the defending army, level cities and critical civilian infrastructure, and topple the regime in Washington.

By Pepe Escobar for Counterpunch. A China-North Korea mutual defense treaty has been in effect since 1961. Under this framework, Beijings response to Trumps fire and fury was a thing of beauty. If Pyongyang attacks, China is neutral. But if the US launches a McMaster-style pre-emptive attack, China intervenes militarily on behalf of Pyongyang. As a clincher, Beijing even made it clear that its preference is for the current status quo to remain. Checkmate. Evidence may have been provided by a very important meeting last week between the chairmen of the US and Chinese Joint Chiefs of Staff, General Joseph Dunford and General Fang Fenghui.

Botswana Khama and the elite hold over tourism copanies "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Mmegi Online

By Lawrence Seretse

The ruling elite with President Ian Khama at the centre and a few foreigners has created a web of business interests around Botswanas most valuable tourist areas, from the Okavango to the Kalahari Central Game Reserve.

 The web welds family and friends together in one impenetrable group. Mmegis investigations tracing the business interests of Directorate of Intelligence and Security boss, Isaac Kgosi have inadvertently led to Wilderness Safaris, a company with connections to almost every member of the ruling elite, family and their friends.

The Khama that emerges is more than a conservationist but rather a keen investor in tourism, with an ever-widening web of business interests in the sector. For example, the President shares business interests with a well-known wildlife filmmaker, Dereck Joubert, to whom he gave a Presidential Award for his wildlife filmmaking.  Khama was a business partner of Derecks older brother, Keith Eric Joubert who died last January.

Khama presented Joubert and his wife with a Presidential Order of Meritorious last September for, both their conservation work and the outstanding impact that their films and books and appearances have brought to Botswana. Filmmakers Dereck and Beverly Joubert own the Selinda Camp...

UN chief calls for reopening of Yemen port, airport "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP | UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres (C) arrives for a visit to Kuwaits national assembly in Kuwait City on August 27, 2017
KUWAIT CITY (AFP)  UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on Sunday urged warring parties in Yemen to allow humanitarian aid into the country amid a political stalemate that has seen violence spill into Sanaa.

We are doing are best to create the conditions for the present stalemate to be overcome, Guterres said after talks in Kuwait, which is leading mediation efforts in crises across the region.

His comments come after tension between Yemeni ex-president Ali Abdullah Saleh and his ally Abdul Malik al-Huthi, who control the capital Sanaa, escalated into armed clashes that left two rebels and a pro-Saleh colonel dead late Saturday.

Since 2014, the Saleh-Huthi alliance has fought the UN-recognised government of Abedrabbo Mansour Hadi for control of the impoverished country.

Witnesses in the capital said the ex-presidents forces had spread in southern parts of the city near the presidential offices, which Saleh still holds despite resigning in 2012.

A Saudi-led coalition supporting the Hadi government imposed an air and sea blockade on all rebel-held territory in March 2015 and tightened it in August last year saying it was the only way to stop weapons smuggling.

Guterres said the UN was trying to facilitate the re-opening of the countrys main international airport in Sanaa as well as the Hodeida port, a key entry point for aid also in rebel-held territory.

We will be working very closely with the (parties) to see when and how a new strong initiative will be possible, he told a news conference.

More than 8,400 civilians have been killed and 47,800 wounded since the Arab coalition joined the war in 2015, according to the World Health Organization.

Presidential Pardon of Joe Arpaio During Hurricane Harvey Widely Condemned "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

(COMMONDREAMS)  Rights groups, immigration activists, legal experts, politicians, and others swiftly denounced President Donald Trumps decision to pardon the notorious former sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was awaiting sentencing after being convicted of criminal contempt for violating a court order that mandated he and his deputies stop racially profiling Latinos in Maricopa County, Arizona.

Trumps pardon of Arpaio is an official endorsement on racial profiling and the abuse of immigrants and people of color, said United We Dream executive director Cristina Jimenez. It is also a slap in the face of the people in Maricopa County who voted a racist, anti-immigrant sheriff out of his job.

Instead of a dog whistle, President Trump picked up a bullhorn, said Vanita Gupta, president and CEO of the Leadership Conference on Civil and Human Rights. This pardon sends a dangerous message that a law enforcement officer who abused his position of power and defied a court order can simply be excused by a president who himself clearly does not respect the law.

Once again, the president has acted in support of illegal, failed immigration enforcement practices that target people of color and that have been struck down by the courts, American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) deputy legal director Cecillia Wang, who sought the court injunction against Arpaio, told Reuters.

Many expressed concerns about the long-term legal implications of Trumps decision.

Hmm Something Smells Fishy Podestas Provide Files to US Gov Days Before Mueller Investigation Subpoenas Podestas "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Guest post by Joe Hoft


The Podesta brothers John and Tony

The crazy liberal Democrat mainstream media (MSM) created the unfounded and unprecedented hoax that the Trump campaign was working with Russia during the 2016 election.  Although no information to date has substantiated this claim, the MSM is reporting non-stop about this since the election loss of their candidate Hillary Clinton.

The Democrats and their Really Fake MSM tried recounts which didnt work and then they gave their all to the fake news Russia-gate story.  At the same time the MSM never mentioned the connections that the Clinton team, including John Podesta, her campaign manager, and the Clinton Foundation had with the Russians.

The Clintons and their cronies took millions from Russia in exchange for US uranium and other future gifts, yet to be disclosed.

We know the Clintons and anyone connected to them is corrupt.  We learned this from the years of Clinton corruption and from  John Podestas emails released shortly before the election by WikiLeaks.  We also know that the Mueller investigation is phony because he is the textbook definition of a dirty cop.  This is due to the fact that Mueller has connections to the key witnesses in the investigation (e.g. James Comey who leaked information to the press hoping to ignite the special counsel) and yet Mueller has not recused himself. He also has a history of not bringing any prosecutions to the high level cases that involved the former President Obama Administration and the Clintons.  Also, all the people hired by Mueller are former Clinton and Obama cronies.

Now last week we uncover that the Podesta Group, run by John Podestas brother Tony, retroactively filed DOJ disclosures for pro-Putin lobbying.  The Washington Examiner reported:

Congress & Trump Quietly Passed A Bill Allowing Warrantless Searches of Homes Only 1% Opposed It "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This article by Rachel Blevins was originally published by Free Thought Project

A bill that will allow homes to be searched without a warrant was passed with overwhelming support by the United States Congress, and signed into law by President Trumpand it happened with no media coverage and very little fanfare.

On the surface, House Joint Resolution 76 looks harmless. The title of the bill claims that its purpose is Granting the consent and approval of Congress for the Commonwealth of Virginia, the State of Maryland, and the District of Columbia to enter into a compact relating to the establishment of the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission.

Whereas the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority, an interstate compact agency of the District of Columbia, the Commonwealth of Virginia, and the State of Maryland, provides transportation services to millions of people each year, the safety of whom is paramount; Whereas an effective and safe Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority system is essential to the commerce and prosperity of the National Capital region; Whereas the Tri-State Oversight Committee, created by a memorandum of understanding amongst these 3 jurisdictions, has provided safety oversight of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority.

The proposal for a safety commission to act as a wing of the Washington Metropolitan Area Transit Authority may sound logical, when its power includes thing such as the ability to Adopt, revise, and distribute a written State Safety Oversight Program and to Review, approve, oversee, and enforce the adoption and implementation of WMATAs Public Transportation Agency Safety Plan.

However, there is one major red flag buried within the text of the bill that stems from the list of powers given to the Washington Metrorail Safety Commission, and it violates one of the basic tenets of the U.S. Constitution.

In performing its duties, the Commission, through its Board or designated employees or agents, may:Enter upon the WMATA Rail System and, upon reasonable notice...

A Hong Kong-Beijing-Taiwan mechanical engineering team led by Dr Huang Mingxin from the University of Hong Kong (HKU) has recently developed a Super Steel (also called D&P Steel as it adopted a new deformed and partitioned (D&P) strategy) which addressed the strength-ductility trade-off. Its material cost is just one-fifth of that of the steel used in the current aerospace and defence applications. This research breakthrough is recently published in the prestigious academic journal Science.

[...] In addition to the substantial improvement of tensile properties, this breakthrough steel has achieved the unprecedented yield strength of 2.2 GPa and uniform elongation of 16%. Additionally, this breakthrough steel has two advantages:

(1). Low raw-materials cost.

The raw materials cost of the D&P steel is only 20% of the maraging steel used in aerospace and defence applications. The chemical composition of this breakthrough steel belongs to the system of medium manganese (Mn) steel, containing 10% manganese, 0.47% carbon, 2% aluminium, 0.7% vanadium (mass percent), and the balance is iron. No expensive alloying elements have been used exhaustively but just some common alloying compositions that can be widely seen in the commercialized steels. Figure 1[1] compares the raw materials cost between the present D&P steel with other high-strength steels.

(2). Simple industrial processing

The second advantage is that this breakthrough steel can be developed using conventional industrial processing routes, including warm rolling, cold rolling and annealing. This is different from the development of other metallic materials where the fabrication processes involve complex routes and special equipment, which are difficult to scale-up. Therefore, it is expected that the present breakthrough steel has a great potential for industrial mass production.

Patna: In a display of opposition unity against the Bharatiya Janata Party, political heavyweights, including West Bengal chief minister Mamata Banerjee and Samajwadi Party president Akhilesh Yadav, shared a platform at Lalu Prasads mega rally in Patna today.

Rashtriya Janata Dal (RJD) chief Lalu Prasad has already said the BJP bhagao desh bachao rally would herald the decline of the BJP-led NDA in the 2019 Lok Sabha election.

Rebel Janata Dal (United) leader Sharad Yadav, who is staring at an expulsion from the party for defying orders of not to attend the rally, was greeted warmly by Prasad who embraced him on the dais.

Yadav was accompanied by suspended JD(U) Rajya Sabha MP Ali Anwar.

Bruce Poliquin, Hiding In The Shadows From Maine Voters "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"


On Thursday morning at 6AM (ET) Jared Golden announced he is running for Maine's second district congressional seat, the one currently occupied by sleazy Republican Bruce Poliquin. On Thursday morning at 6AM (PT) Blue America endorsed Golden. We had been working on an endorsement for him-- based on a combination of his record in the state legislature and his exemplary character and ability to accomplish his goals-- even before he had decided to run. We saw him as the perfect candidate to take the district-- which went 51.4% to 41.1% for Trump-- from red to blue... and then to do a great job in Congress.

One of the Beltway election prognosticators rated the likelihood of a red to blue flip for every district in the country. Based on a fatally-flawed, reactive and backward looking model-- which pays lip-service to best practices but then ignores them entirely-- their predictions are worthless and even silly. They make all kinds of claims about considering the qualities of candidates, among other factors, but appear to base their forecasts almost entirely on how Clinton did in the district. In the case of ME-02, which has 4 Democrats battling in a primary for their party's nomination, the claim is that the race "leans Republican" and they rate the chance of a Democratic win at 36.0%. If the Democratic Party were to re-run the same tired, uninspiring hackish candidate they ran for the open seat in 2014 and against Poliquin in 2016-- Emily Cain-- then 36% would be a reasonable probability. But Jared Golden is not Emily Cain. In fact the difference between them is two things:

Former Australian PM Abbott admits he was passed out drunk during crucial financial crisis vote "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

After years of lies and deflections, Australia's former prime minister Tony Abbott has admitted on a local television program that he missed a crucial 2009 vote on a $42 billion stimulus package intended to shore up the country's banking system during the financial crisis because he was passed out drunk. Abbott, then a member of the Liberal party's front bench, said he fell asleep on the couch in his office after consuming "quite a few bottles of wine" with two of his peers in the MP's dining room "and could not be roused." The next thing he knew, it was morning, and he had missed the vote, according to the Herald Sun. The admission comes years after a public row erupted between Abbott and former Labor Treasurer Wayne Swan when, back in 2013, Swan accused Abbott of missing the crucial vote because he drank too much. At the time, Abbott demanded that Swan stop "telling lies" about him, and members of Abbott's party asked that Swan withdraw his comments from the parliamentary record.

Ruby Ridge, 1992: 25th anniversary of the American popular resistance "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A firefight between six US marshals and two boys and their dog began a movement founded on anti-government ideology. The internet age has spread its message wider Twenty-five years ago this week, in a remote corner of northern Idaho, the modern militia movement was born in a firefight. On the streets of Charlottesville, Virginia, two weeks ago, observers could see from the presence of well-armed men in fatigues that that movement was still with us. Comment: There were just 6 militia members at Charlottesville - and they distanced themselves from the neo-fascists before things kicked off. But back in 1992, they hadn't yet formed. A firefight between six US marshals and two boys and a dog, changed all that.

Twins eye-tracking study offers insight into autism "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Research suggests that genetics underlie how children seek out formative social experiences like making eye contact or observing facial expressions How we look at other people's faces is strongly influenced by our genes, scientists have found in new research that may be especially important for understanding autism because it suggests that people are born with neurological differences that affect how they develop socially. The study, published in the journal Nature, adds new pieces to the nature-versus-nurture puzzle, suggesting that genetics underlie how children seek out formative social experiences like making eye contact or observing facial expressions. Experts said the study may also provide a road map for scientists searching for genes linked to autism. "These are very convincing findings, novel findings," said Charles A. Nelson III, a professor of paediatrics and neuroscience at Harvard Medical School and Boston Children's Hospital, who was not involved in the research. "They seem to suggest that there's a genetic underpinning that leads to different patterns of brain development, that leads some kids to develop autism."

Among the exhibits shown at the Army-2017 international military expo in Russia are trophies from Syria - weapons captured from terrorist groups by the Syrian government army. The pieces range from home-made mortars to military-grade firearms and explosives. The weapons on display were mostly captured in Aleppo, Homs and Hama governorates in ambush operations against forces of terrorist groups Islamic State (IS, formerly ISIS/ISIL) and Jabhat Fateh al-Sham (formerly Jabhat al-Nusra). Most of the exhibits were made in terrorist workshops from whatever materials they had at their disposal. The hardware includes mortars made from water pipes, several improvised multiple rocket launchers, a two-barrel 305mm caliber weapon and a so-called 'hell cannon' - a howitzer firing shells made from propane canisters.

Ms de 3 millones de personas de ms de los que estn realmente vivos figuran registradas para votar en EEUU. "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

La injerencia en las elecciones de EEUU podra venir de EEUU

(Sputnik) Segn un estudio del censo de Estados Unidos, el pas tiene ms votantes registrados que votantes vivos.

Los datos del estudio, que forman parte del proyecto estadounidense Election Integrity Project, analizan la informacin electoral de la que se dispone desde 2011 hasta 2015, y ha sido el conocido analista estadounidense Deroy Murdock quien ha cotejado esos datos en National Review.

Unos tres millones y medio de personas de ms de los que estn realmente vivos figuran registradas para votar en EEUU. Esta alarmante diferencia se lo pone muy fcil al fraude electoral, dice Murdock.

El analista advierte de que el total de votantes con derecho a voto en 462 condados estadounidenses es superior al 100% de la poblacin, lo que se traduce en 3.552 millones de votantes fantasma a nivel de todo el pas.

Segn los datos, 11 condados de California tienen fantasmas entre sus votantes. En el condado de Los ngeles, el ms grande de EEUU, la cosa no pinta mejor: 707.475 votantes pueden votar pero no estn vivos; el 12% de los votantes registrados.

El condado californiano de San Diego gana por goleada y el pucherazo es maysculo: 810.966 votos que nadie sabe de dnde salen. En Colorado, 159.373 votos sobran y en Michigan, 225.235.

Twenty-plus years on, SMTP callbacks are still pointless and need to die "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

A rarely used legacy misfeature of the main Internet email protocol creeps back from irrelevance as a minor annoyance. You should ask your mail and antispam provider about their approach to 'SMTP callbacks'. Be wary of any assertion that is not backed by evindence.

Even if you are an IT professional and run an email system, you could be forgiven for not being immediately aware that there is such a thing as SMTP callbacks, also referred to as callback verification. As you will see from the Wikipedia article, the feature was never widely adopted, and for all too understandable reasons.

If you do run a mail system, you have probably heard about that feature's predecessor, the still-required but rarely used SMTP VRFY and EXPN commands. Those commands offer a way to verify whether an address is valid and to show the component addresses that a mailing list resolves to, respectively.

Back when all things inter-networking were considered experimental and it was generally thought that information should flow freely in and between those experimental networks, it was quite common for mail servers to offer VRFY and EXPN service to all comers.

I'm old enough to remember using VRFY by hand, telnet-ing to port 25 on a mail server and running VRFY $user@$domain.$tld commands to check whether an email address was indeed valid. I've forgotten which domains and persons were involved, but I imagine the reason why was that I wanted to contact somebody who had said something interesting in a post to a USENET news group.

But networkers trying to make contact with each other were not the only ones who discovered the VRFY and EXPN commands.  Soon spammers were using those commands to actively harvest actually! valid! deliverable! addresses, and by 1999 the RFC2505 best practices document recommended disabling the features altogether. After all, there would usually be some other way available to find somebody's email address (there was even a FAQ, a longish Frequent...

Alison Miller helped set me up in Alaska

Numerous people expressed concern at my traveling to the USA, fearing I would be bumped off. Well, they did try. This was one of three attempts on my life in the USA.

I think one year is sufficient time for a health board to finalise an investigation. Ive lost patience; so, here is the complaint Ive sat on for 11 months.

To the Alaskan Board of Social Work Examiners,

I am writing to lodge a formal complaint regarding Kimber Olson, a board certified licensed clinical social worker. Ms Olsons work address is 2600 Denali, Suite 606, Anchorage, 907-903-7880.
On 9th October, 2016, I was attending a Seattle conference as an international guest presenter. A social worker who works for Tacoma police, Beth Cook Adams, approached my associate Nicky Davis and asked to speak privately with me. Ms Cook spoke with Nicky and I, and told me she was impressed with my conference presentation.
Beth told Nicky and I that she was due to travel to Anchorage, Alaska the following weekend to assist with a two-week intensive intervention with an alleged DID client named Sarah, which had been organised by Kimber Olson. Beth indicated that there was a severe shortage of volunteers to assist with baby-sitting the client of a night time at her accommodation in hotels and a remote cottage in Eagle River Valley. Beth also indicated that she was nervous about assisting with a DID client.
Nicky and I offered to travel to Anchorage at our own expense and volunteer, if the organisers were interested.
Beth said that Kimber was desperate for volunteers as there were gaps in the roster.
I made it clear that Nicky and I were not licensed health professionals.
Beth made a call to Kimber who immediately agreed to our assisting.
Nicky and I flew to Alaska on Monday 10th October.
We were collected from the airport by Kimber Olson who had the client in the car. We drove to Kimbers office. Kimber then loaned us her car while she had a lengthy therapy session with the client. After this, Kimber drove Nicky, the client and I to a shopping centre where Nicky and I purchased groceries that the client requested. Kimber then drove us to the remote cottage in Eagle River Valley.
Nicky and I were not briefed prior to being left at the cottage with the client. We were never given a chance to sp...

Never Trump Gang Calls for Shadow Government to Undermine Trump "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

 

Writing in the New York Times, of course, Wehner declares whats required now is a comprehensive, consistent case by Republican leaders at the state and national levels that signals their opposition to the moral ugliness and intellectual incoherence of Mr. Trump.

Rather than standing by the president, they should consider themselves liberated and offer a constructive, humane and appealing alternative to him, Wehner writes in his Sunday Review column. They need to think in terms of a shadow government during the Trump era, with the elevation of alternative leaders on a range of matters.

He says this approach involves risk and may not work and predicts it will provoke an angry response from the Breitbart-alt-right-talk-radio part of the party.

So be it, Wehner continues, adding that Republicans who dont share Mr. Trumps approach have to hope that his imploding presidency has created an opening to offer a profoundly different vision of America, one that is based on opportunity, openness, mobility and inclusion.

He calls for a new intellectual infrastructure to address what may prove to be one of the largest economic disruptions in history and implores people in positions of influence to appeal to moral idealism.

The government of Cambodia has exposed and expelled a US network attempting to interfere in the nations political processes. The US National Democratic Institute (NDI) was reportedly ordered to end its activities in the country and remove all of its foreign staff.

In a statement, the foreign ministry accused the National Democratic Institute (NDI) of operating in Cambodia without registering, and said its foreign staff had seven days to leave. Reuters in an article titled, Cambodia orders U.S.-funded group to halt operations, remove staff, would claim:


Authorities were geared up to take the same measures against other foreign NGOs which fail to comply with the law, the ministry added.

The article also noted that:

Prime Minister Hun Sen, who has ruled Cambodia for more than three decades, on Tuesday ordered the English-language The Cambodia Daily newspaper to pay taxes accrued over the past decade or face closure. The paper was founded by an American. 

He also lashed out at the United States and non-governmental organizations (NGOs) and accused them of funding groups attempting to overthrow his government.

The American-owned Cambodia Daily newspaper in its own article titled, NDI Ordered to Halt Operations, Foreign Staff Face Expulsion, would note that:

The announcement comes less than a week after documents leaked on Facebook and circulated on government-affiliated media appeared to show political cooperation between NDI and the opposition party, amid increased tension in recent weeks between the government and U.S.-backed NGOs and media outlets.

In an interview in todays Sunday Business Post the writer Roddy Doyle discusses the homeless situation in Dublin:

It is the thing I feel ashamed of, more than anything, as a citizen. Somehow or other in the 1950s and 1960s, in this awful priest ridden country that we used to live in, they still managed to build good houses for working people, and there wasnt a penny in the country. Now it seems beyond the means. We cannot supply housing to people who need it. Its appalling.

The story goes on to say:

Around 7,000 people are homeless in Ireland. Close to 30% of those are children. Almost one in five homeless people are in employment.

Ceasefire halts Syria-Lebanon border fight against Islamic State "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Reuters

By Ellen Francis

BEIRUT (Reuters) A ceasefire took effect on Sunday in an Islamic State enclave straddling the Syria-Lebanon border, where the militants have been fighting the Lebanese army on one front and Hezbollah with Syrian troops on the other.

The Lebanese army announced that a ceasefire in its own offensive took effect at 7:00 a.m (12 a.m. ET) but did not mention Syrias side of the frontier.

Hezbollah and the Syrian army declared a ceasefire in their attack against Islamic State in Syrias western Qalamoun region, Hezbollahs al-Manar TV said.

The battle began a week ago when the Lebanese army, and Hezbollah together with Syrian government forces, launched separate but simultaneous assaults.

Both offensives have advanced toward the border from opposite sides. Lebanon and Shiite Hezbollah each said they have made gains against the militants, driving them back into a smaller zone in the arid hills on the border.

The Islamic State enclave in the barren mountains marks the last militant foothold along the Syria-Lebanon frontier.

Northeast Lebanon saw one of the worst spillovers of Syrias war into Lebanon in 2014, when Islamic State and other militants briefly overran the border town of Arsal. The fate of nine soldiers that Islamic State took captive then remains unknown.

The Lebanese army said the ceasefire would pave the way for negotiations over the fate of the soldiers.

SYRIA: The Raqqa Moonscape as US Coalition Bombs Civilians and Reduces City to Dust "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Stephen Lendman
Global Research

America raped and destroyed Mosul on the phony pretext of combating ISIS and liberating the city. Thousands of civilians were killed. Indiscriminate terror-bombing, including use of banned weapons, massacred them.

Raqqa is being raped and destroyed the same way, civilians killed daily. Satellite images reveal a virtual moonscape, large parts of the city turned to rubble, maybe thousands of corpses buried beneath it largely civilian men, women and children, victims of us imperial viciousness.

Terror-bombing continues targeting residential areas. Vital infrastructure was destroyed. Western media ignore the carnage and devastation merciless terror-bombing of civilians on the phony pretext of combating ISIS Washington supports.

Thousands remain trapped in the city. Humanitarian conditions are dire, civilians with virtually no access to essentials to life.

The UN expressed deep concerns over whats happening, failing to denounce US Nuremberg-level high crimes of war and against humanity.

UN humanitarian official Jan Egeland said heavy bombing, shelling and fighting makes escape from the city almost impossible.

I cannot think of a worse place on earth now than five Raqqa neighborhoods where 20,000 people struggle to survive, he said, numbers among them dying daily, others enduring horrendous suffering. Russia, Iran and Hezbollah support the countrys sovereign independence and territorial integrity.

The struggle for Syrias soul continues no end of conflict in sight as long as Washington wants war, not restoration of peace and stability.

More Left lunacy: Memphis theater to stop annual summer screenings of Gone With the Wind due to the film's 'insensitive' content "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Breaking from a 34-year-old tradition, the historic Orpheum Theatre in downtown Memphis, Tennessee, announced Friday that it will not show Gone With the Wind in its future summer movie series because of the film's "insensitive" racial content. The decision comes in the wake of backlash over Orpheum's screening on August 11, the same night that the white nationalist Unite the Right rally took place in Charlottesville, Virginia. Community members took to the venue's Facebook page to denounce Gone With the Wind as "racist" and to call out its "tributes to white supremacy." The 1939 classic film has long been criticized for its romanticized depiction of slavery and the American South of the 19th century. Comment: More BS.

Fighting For My Free Speech "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Techrights uptime
But its actually up and running, something in the network prevents access to it

WHILE Mr. Trump fights for his safe space by blocking me (and many other critics of his), I myself never block anyone. I never preached for anything other than free speech, including speech or messages that I strongly disagree with. I never deleted any comments that offended me, either. I approved everything. Even insults against me; even libel!

Not everyone views the world like I do. A lot of people believe in outright gagging of particular views. In fact, many think that its acceptable to block my entire site, as the EPO has done for nearly 3 years. The EPO went even further than blocking my site and on numerous occasions threatened to sue me (SLAPP). Others did so too.

Over the past 4 months my Web sites have not been accessible from particular locations. My webhost and I are not sure why. Recently, things got a lot worse. More and more locations in the world find themselves unable to access my writings. There seems to be something in the network (not the server or the users end but the routing) standing in the way. We are still investigating this as censorship of this kind continues to exacerbate (I track the severity of it using an uptime notifications service called Montastic a service I have been using for over a decade).

At the moment, my most important work revolves around articles about the EPO. In the past, the EPO attempted article takedowns using threats of litigation. It tried several times. These articles contained leaks, which we published almost daily. Would any other sites out there be willing to create a mirror for it all? Its almost 2,000 articles (the site as a whole has about 22,500 articles, aside from the Wiki and front page which was implemented in Drupal), which include PDF attachments etc. The CMS is WordPress for the most part (for all the articles). Articles indexes have already been set up; someone scraped these and put some copies on Github, but a complete mirror would help discourage future muzzling attempts.

The state of censorship on the Internet is now verging the creepy. Were told its necessary because Nazis (the perfect pretext/excuse other then pure cri...

Deadly clashes in Yemen rebel ranks spark fears of more treason and back-stabbing "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP / by Jamil Nasser | Yemens former president Ali Abdullah Saleh remains the head of his General Peoples Congress party, whose 35th anniversary was marked with a mass rally in Sanaa on August 24
SANAA (AFP)  A Yemeni colonel loyal to former president Ali Abdullah Saleh and two rebels have been killed in Sanaa, in an unprecedented escalation of violence between the allies that Salehs party warns threatens to push the capital into all-out war.An anti-government alliance between Saleh and rebel leader Abdul Malik al-Huthi has crumbled over the past week, with the two accusing each other of treason and back-stabbing.

Witnesses in the capital, which Saleh and Huthi jointly control, said the ex-presidents forces had spread in southern parts of the city near the presidential offices, which Saleh still holds despite resigning in 2012.

They said the forces had deployed in Sabaeen Square and the district of Hadda.

Salehs General Peoples Congress party said in a statement on Sunday that remaining silent on the incident would open the door to strife that would be difficult to contain.

Colonel Khaled al-Rida, the deputy head of foreign relations in the GPC, was killed in the clashes between supporters of Saleh and Abdul Malik al-Huthi late Saturday, the statement said.

A source within the GPC said the clashes erupted at a Huthi rebel checkpoint in Hadda after a dispute between fighters manning the checkpoint and armed supporters of Saleh who were driving by.

The rebel-run Saba news agency said two members of the Popular Committees, a tribal alliance largely dominated by the Huthis, were also killed.

Saleh and Huthi joined ranks in 2014 in a shock alliance that drove the internationally recognised government out of Sanaa and into the southern province of Aden.

From its inception, analysts have viewed the alliance as a tactical move by both sides, with rebels exploiting Salehs political power and the former president benefitting from the Huthis guns on the ground.

War of words

But in the past week, a war of words between Saleh and Huthi has escalated, with Saleh hinting that his allies were merely a militia and the rebels warning the former president was a back-stabber and traitor who would bear the consequences of the insult.

The most recent clashes have added fuel to the fire, with the GPC statement accusing a grou...

Brexit: Labour Supports Soft Bexit Making Life Tougher for Theresa May "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

LONDON, (Reuters) The opposition Labour Party says it would keep Britain in the European single market and customs union for a transitional period after Brexit, offering a clear alternative to the policies of Prime Minister Theresa May.

The center-left party would seek to maintain the same basic terms with the European Union, including the free movement of people, beyond March 2019 when Britain is set to leave the bloc, Labours Brexit spokesman Keir Starmer said on Sunday.

Labour wanted to avoid a damaging cliff edge for the economy from an abrupt separation in less than two years.

It would also aim to keep a form of customs union with the EU, and would possibly agree a new relationship with the single market, subject to negotiations, Starmer added in the Observer newspaper.

Senior ministers in Mays Conservative government have ruled out remaining in the single market and customs union during any transitional phase following Brexit.

Starmer said following EU rules for a period would allow goods and services to continue to flow between the EU and Britain without tariffs, customs checks or additional red tape.

Starmers comments follow months of uncertainty and division on Labours position, and are aimed at providing a springboard for party leader Jeremy Corbyn to potentially defeat the Conservatives in any new election.

Mays grip on power has been weakened following a botched early general election in June in which she lost her parliamentary majority, making it harder for her government to maintain a united stance on Brexit.

NO TIME LIMITS

Labour recognized that a transitional deal would not provide long-term certainty, Starmer said, and it would not res...

Hit App Sarahah Quietly Uploads Your Address Book "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Sarahah, a new app that lets people sign up to receive anonymized, candid messages, has been surging in popularity; somewhere north of 18 million people are estimated to have downloaded it from Apple and Googles online stores, making it the number three most downloaded free software title for iPhones and iPads.

Sarahah bills itself as a way to receive honest feedback from friends and employees. But the app is collecting more than feedback messages. When launched for the first time, it immediately harvests and uploads all phone numbers and email addresses in your address book. Although Sarahah does in some cases ask for permission to access contacts, it does not disclose that it uploads such data, nor does it seem to make any functional use of the information. Sarahah did not respond to requests for comment.

Zachary Julian, a senior security analyst at Bishop Fox, discovered Sarahahs uploading of private information when he installed the app on his Android phone, a Galaxy S5 running Android 5.1.1. The phone was outfitted with monitoring software known as BURP Suite, which intercepts internet traffic entering and leaving the device, allowing the owner to see what data is sent to remote servers. When Julian launched Sarahah on the device, BURP Suite caught the app in the act of uploading his private data.

As soon as you log into the application, it transmits all of your email and phone contacts stored on the Android operating system, he said. He later verified the same occurs on Apples iOS, albeit after a prompt to access contacts, which also appears in newer versions of Android. Julian also noticed that if you havent used the application in a while, itll share all of your contacts again. He did some testing on the app on a Friday night, and when he booted the app on a Sunday morning, it pushed all of his contacts again. (You can see some of his testing in this video.)

Drew Porter, founder of security firm Red Mesa, said that this type of behavior is more common than most users would expect, especially when an app is free like Sarahah. He said that even if users are willing to trust a piece of software with their address book data, there are reasons to avoid trusting the internet servers associated with the app. Its no longer that you have to worry about the data on your phone, its that you have to worry about the data on your phone thats somewhere else that you have no control over being compromised, he said. Its not just, Oh, this company can see my information and Im okay with that. You now have to think abo...

RTE, Europes Largest Electricity Operator, Sabotaged, Again "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

from Indymedia Grenoble

from Earth First! Journal

With nearly 105,000 km of lines, RTEs grid is the biggest in Europe including 60 cross-border connections with the neighbouring countries composed of 1,231 transformers, 2,710 RTE substations and 3,504 delivery points

The construction site for very high voltage lines in the Haute Durance valley did not proceed unhindered. RTE [Rseau de Transport dlectricit = Electricity Transmission Network] counts around fifty machines put out of harms way. It appears that after the sugar in the tanks, the cut cables, and the punctured tires, a new method has appeared:

On February 9, a prefabricated RTE near Embrun was starting to smoke.

During the night of Wednesday to Thursday, August, 24th, a car belonging to RTE went up in flames in Chorges

Not to mention the numerous attempts made on machines or bases of pylons

Despite the progress of the work, certain e.s [??] do not resign and continue to put matches in the RTE wheels. These fires warm our hearts and give us courage. Even if we do not all have the same methods, we say we are in solidarity and we will fight with them if there is any prosecution. In any case, everything was attempted to stop this project: the remedies did not give anything, the manifestations and the blockages ignored. So we were really left with no choice! (There would be much to criticize on the usefulness of the democratic approaches and on the fact that it is the power that leaves no choices for its enemies ) NdAtt.

In other areas, they used wire mesh to keep fish away, mimicking the effects of overfishing. They wanted to know if these sources of stress disrupt the relationship between the corals and the trillions of microbes that live with them-and whether these disruptions lead to the corals' demise.

How Much Longer Can Guy Ryder and Claude Rouiller Ignore Abuses and Cement Injustice at the EPO? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Looking the other way to secure their own job

Guy Ryder
Guy Ryder, Director-General of ILO

Summary: ILO does not deal with cases of injustice at the EPO and barely even looks into appeals, instead issuing very short dismissals and moving on as though its a rubber-stamping operation

EARLIER this summer we wrote about ILOs passive approach towards (if not utter disregard for) justice at the EPO. We complained about apathy/indifference and then mentioned the upcoming decisions from the ILO Administrative Tribunal (ILOAT) decisions which were likely going to be more of the same [1, 2]. We havent until now had a chance to revisit this subject.

The above serves to reaffirm the view that ILO does not provide recourse/access to justice and Dutch authorities should therefore deal with the matter accordingly, removing the immunity of the Office.The latest set of ILOAT judgments came out on the 28th of June. As can be seen here, many of the judgments (at least 7 we can see) were, as usual, about EPO. Mr. Rouiller himself was involved in his capacity as a judge (not just Tribunal chief) in some of the judgments, for example this latest one (complaint summarily dismissed). Only one out of 7 he was not involved in, namely this one (dismissed also). The remaining 5 are:

In early 2016 the hillside town of Madaya, just northwest of Damascus, was the focus of sudden Western and Gulf media campaigns featuring harrowing photos of emaciated elderly and children splashed widely across print, online and social media. Throughout 2016, these stories continued in Madaya, as well as in al-Waer, Homs, and in eastern-Aleppo areas.

The Syrian government was accused of not allowing in food and medical aid, of deliberately starving its people; the terrorists presence was largely unmentioned. On Madaya, The Telegraph ran a headline, Starving Syrians in besieged town of Madaya are reduced to eating cats and dogs, and subheadline, The people of Madaya outside Damascus besieged by regime forces and Hezbollah since July are surviving on boiled leaves and street animals, with no mention of al-Qaeda or Ahrar al-Sham.

The Independent accused the Assad regime of deliberately starving 40,000 civilians and, while citing the Red Cross in the ar...

UNICEF warns of continued threat facing women and children "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

March 21, 2006: UNICEF's Deputy Executive Director, Ms. Rima Salah, has warned of a continued threat facing Afghan women and children from high rates of child and maternal mortality, low levels of school enrolment and neglect of children's fundamental rights. Speaking at the start of a week-long visit to Afghanistan, Ms. Salah expressed concern at the health, education and protection status of children and women; an estimated 600 children under the age of five die every day in Afghanistan, mostly due to preventable illnesses, some 50 women die every day due to obstetric complications, less than half of primary school age girls attend classes, while a quarter of primary school age children undertake some form of work, and an estimated one-third of women are married before the age of 18.

Christian convert faces death penalty in Afghanistan "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

March 20, 2006: A man could be sentenced to death after being charged with converting from Islam to Christianity, a crime under Afghanistan's shariah laws, a judge said yesterday. The trial is thought to be the first of its kind in Afghanistan and highlights a struggle between religious conservatives and reformists over what shape Islam will take four years after the fall of the Taliban. Abdul Rahman, 41, was arrested last month after his family accused him of becoming a Christian, Judge Ansarullah Mawlavezada told Associated Press. The accused was charged with rejecting Islam.

Over the past few months, anti-government groups in the southern provinces have stepped up their attacks on Afghan army units and police as well as international military forces. Most officials and commentators, including President Hamid Karzai, have said the source of the violence is training camps and bases in Pakistan. However, a series of arms seizures in the north indicates that logistical support for the Taleban may be coming from an unlikely source: their former foes in the so-called Northern Alliance.

Merkel Has No Regrets Over Refugee Policy Despite Political Cost "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

BERLIN German Chancellor Angela Merkel said she has no regrets about her 2015 decision to open the countrys borders to hundreds of thousands of refugees and added she will not be deterred from campaigning by angry hecklers.

In an interview with the Welt am Sonntag newspaper on Sunday, Merkel denied she had made any mistakes with her open-door policy even though the arrival of a million refugees over the last two years from Syria and Iraq opened deep rifts in her conservative party and depressed its support.

German Chancellor Angela Merkel

Four weeks before the Sept. 24 election, an Emnid opinion poll on Sunday showed Merkels conservatives would win 38 percent, or 15 points ahead of the center-left Social Democrats (SPD). That is up from 32 percent in February but well below the 41.5 percent her party won in the last election in 2013.

Id make all the important decisions of 2015 the same way again, Merkel said. It was an extraordinary situation and I made my decision based on what I thought was right from a political and humanitarian standpoint.

Those kinds of extraordinary situations happen every once in a while in a countrys history, she added. The head of government has to act and I did.

Her decision to open the borders contributed to a surge in support for the far-right Alternative for Germany (AfD) party, which pollsters say could win up to 10 percent in the September election.

Merkel, seeing a fourth term, has had to contend with loud and sustained heckling from demonstrators strongly opposed to her refugee policies so far on the campaign trail.

UKs Labour Backs Staying in EUs Single Market After Brexit "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

LONDON Britains main opposition party has announced that it backs the U.K. staying in the European Union single market and customs union during a transition period after Brexit.

The Labour Party says the ruling Conservative Partys Brexit position taking Britain out of the EU single market immediately after March 2019, when Britain is to leave the bloc would be unnecessary and highly risky.

Labour Brexit secretary Keir Starmer said Sunday that his party wants Britain to continue to abide by the terms of its current EU membership during an unspecified transition period, before a final shift to a new Britain-EU relationship.

Starmer added that Labour would leave open the option of Britain remaining a member of the EU customs union and single market for good.

National Security Adviser General H.R. McMaster is moving aggressivelyand successfullyto maximize his power in the Trump Administration. President Trump is standing by his side as anti-Islamist writers and think-tanks like the Center for Security Policy call for his termination or reassignment.

McMasters ascent is a sudden change in the balance of power in the White House. President Trump was widely reported to be so disappointed with McMaster that Trump met with former U.N. ambassador John Bolton to discuss replacing him. Trump and Bolton concluded it was not the right move.

Then, Secretary of Homeland Security General John Kelly became the new chief of staff. He told McMaster that he wanted him to stay. McMasters chief rivals, Chief Strategist Steve Bannon and Deputy Assistant Dr. Sebastian Gorka, were then pressured into resigning.

The criticisms of McMaster are well-warranted and are not the fruits of overactive imaginations among bigoted alt-right smear-merchants, like Senator McCain characterizes them.

Here are 25 reasons that President Trump should fire National Security Adviser McMaster or, if hes willing to, reassign him to a military position where he can excel on the battlefield as he did before.

Is Labours dramatic shift on Brexit at the top of a slippery slope to remaining within the EU? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Stand by for a round of attacks by the Tories on Labour for their dramatic shift to a clearer Brexit policy of remaining within the single market and the customs union for a time as short as possible, but as long as is necessary.  But behind the sound and fury, look carefully too for signs of a split or   nuances within Conservative ranks.

More than ever, Brexit will either become the clear differentiator between the two main parties or create a smash in British politics with unpredictable results. The British political system is plunged deeper into its greatest turmoil since the Peoples Budget and Home Rule crises from  1910, aggravated today by the fact that both party leaders are seen as transitional figures.

Labours shift announced today by shadow Brexit secretary Keith Starmer in the Observer has its own risk of underplaying the immigration factor said to feature strongly in some Labour heartlands.

But as short as possible but as long as necessary contains  its own constructive ambiguity. How long is that? And then there the slippery slope argument which Remainers will seize on.

Responding to Sir Keirs announcement, Labour peer and former minister Lord Adonis said on Twitter: Chances of staying in the EU just rose to nearly 50%. Rejoice, rejoice!

Starmer argues:

There is now near consensus that a transitional period is an economic and political necessity. So I want to be absolutely clear about the type of transitional deal Labour would seek to negotiate. No constructive ambiguity. No mixed messages. A credible solution to one of the most important issues facing Britains exit from the EU.

Labour would seek a transitional deal that maintains the same basic terms that we currently enjoy with the EU. That means we would seek to remain in a customs union with the EU and within the single market during this period. It means we would abide by the common rules of both.

There are a number of other significant advantages to this approach. First, it is a grown-up acknowledgement that bespoke transitional arrangements are highly unlikely to be negotiated, agreed and established in the next 18 months. Second, it provides maximum certainty for businesses and allays concerns that there will be delays or disruptions to trade when we leave the EU in March 2019. It would also ensure there will be a one-step transition to a new final relationship.

Third, it provides more time to resolve the complex question of the Northern Ireland border. Labour is clear that this extremely serious issue must no...

Defense Minister Avigdor Liberman stated on Sunday that Israel will not repeat the mistake of freeing Palestinian prisoners in exchange for the bodies of missing IDF soldiers Lt. Hadar Goldin and Sgt. Oron Shaul as well as other Israeli citizens held in the Hamas-run Gaza Strip.

Addressing the resignation of Col. (res.) Lior Lotan, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahus former coordinator on the issue of prisoners of war and soldiers missing in action, Liberman referred to the 2011 deal which released over 1,000 Palestinian security prisoners in exchange for the release of former IDF soldier Gilad Schalit, who was held captive by Hamas for 5 years.

Lotan, who was working without remuneration, resigned on Thursday after three years in the position. He was appointed in 2014, replacing David Meidan who played a key role in formulating the prisoner exchange deal which led to the release of Gilad Schalit in 2011.

The Defense Minister stated that Israel will not repeat the mistake of the Schalit deal, which freed 1,027 terrorists, including murderers and their agents, including Mahmoud Qawasmeh, who was released to the Gaza Strip and financed the abduction of...

Israel to press UN chief on blindness on Hezbollah "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

AFP

AFP | The UN Security Council is debating whether to renew the mandate of its peacekeeping mission in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, with a vote expected on August 30
JERUSALEM (AFP)  Israel will press UN Secretary General Antonio Guterres on what it says is Hezbollahs arms buildup in Lebanon during his first visit to the Jewish state since taking office, the deputy foreign minister said Sunday.Guterres was due to arrive in the evening for meetings with Israeli and Palestinian leaders and officials, with the visit scheduled to continue through Wednesday.

The trip comes as the UN Security Council debates renewing for a year the mandate of its peacekeeping mission in Lebanon, known as UNIFIL, with a vote expected on August 30.

The US ambassador to the United Nations, Nikki Haley, has blasted the commander of the UNIFIL peacekeepers, accusing him of turning a blind eye to Hezbollah weapons smuggling.

United Nations spokesman Stephane Dujarric has however said: We have full confidence in (the commanders) work.

Israeli deputy foreign minister Tzipi Hotovely told public radio on Sunday: Haley was right.

We shall not allow this blindness to continue.

She said that Hezbollahs deployment along Lebanons border with Israel would be a very central issue in the discussions with Guterres.

He will meet the head of military intelligence and receive a briefing, and also meet the prime minister, and I am sure that he will not leave here with the feeling that the mandate given to the UN is being implemented on the ground, Hotovely said.

Beyond meeting Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, he is also expected to hold talks with Palestinian premier Rami Hamdallah in Ramallah in the occupied West Bank on Tuesday.

Guterres has told the Security Council that he intends to look at ways in which UNIFIL could beef up its efforts regarding the illegal presence of armed personnel, weapons or infrastructure inside its area of operations.

As US President-elect, Donald Trump dismissed the United Nations as just a club for people to get together and have a good time and warned that things would be different after his inauguration.

Since taking office in January he has proposed a dramatic cut of 60 percent of US funding for peacekeeping missions.

Casting Metal Directly Into 3D Printed Molds "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Casting metal and 3D printing go together like nuts and gum, and there are no shortage techniques that use the two together. Lost PLA casting is common, and sculptors are getting turned on to creating their works in plastic first before sending it off to the foundry. Now the folks at FormLabs have turned the whole casting metal and 3D printer thing on its head: theyre printing sacrificial molds to cast pewter.

There are two techniques demonstrated in this tutorial, but the real winner here is printing a complete sacrificial mold for pewter miniatures. While this technique requires a little bit of work including washing, curing, and a bit of post-processing, you would have to do that anyway with anything coming out of a resin printer.

The material of choice for these molds is a high temp resin with a heat deflection temperature of 289 C. Using a pewter alloy that melts at 260 C, casting a metal miniature is as simple as pouring molten metal into a mold. Demolding might be a little finicky, but with a small screwdriver used as a chisel, its possible to get the cast newly parts out.

Weve seen pewter casting with PLA, but the quality available from the Form resin printers is truly amazing and produces some great looking miniatures.

Arpaio Pardon Is Trumps Latest Attempt to Obstruct Justice "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

On its surface, President Donald Trumps pardon of Joe Arpaio is many things: a slap in the face of Hispanics and an affront to the rule of law as well as a nod to Trumps alt-right base and, of course, a gift to a man who was supposed to enforce the law who instead decided to openly break it.

In reality, however, it is about much more than that. The main beneficiary here is not the man who got pardoned. After all, it was not likely that Arpaio would have ever gone to jail over his contempt of court charge.

No, as with so many things Trump does, this pardon primarily helps himself.

As special counsel Robert Mueller is trying to get to the bottom of the presidents ties to Russia, one of the most important tools at his disposal is the ability to build cases against lesser members of Trumps campaign to get them to spill the beans on his inner circle.

As Martin Sheil, a retired branch chief of IRS Criminal Investigation division, has pointed out for WhoWhatWhy, retired general and Trumps first National Security Adviser Michael Flynn is likely already in deep trouble over non-disclosure of payments from foreign governments.

The same is probably true for Paul Manafort, who managed the campaign for a few months and whose house was raided by the FBI three weeks ago.

Ordinarily, both of them would be great candidates to give up all they know about potential wrongdoing by Trump and his campaign in exchange for immunity or leniency for their own crimes. However, this sticks and carrots approach only works if the stick actually stings.

With the Arpaio pardon, however, Trump is clearly trying to remove the stick from the equation. The president has not only shown that he will reward his allies for their loyalty no matter how bad it makes him look but he didnt even wait until the process has played out (Arpaio had not been sentenced yet).

In addition, Trump showed a complete disregard for the regular pardoning process, i.e., an FBI background investigation for cases in which a pardon is being considered. While White House press secretary Sarah Huckabee Sanders had assured reporters on Thursday that any Arpaio pardon would go through the thorough and standard process, Trump proved her wrong a day later by forging ahead.

And that, too, sends a message. The president is willing to buck previous conventions and do as he pleases as long as it helps him.

So whats to stop Trump from issuing some sort of blanket pardon for Flynn and Manafort for any potential financial crimes they co...

1991 fear of panic if IRA had threatened to detonate a nuclear or anthrax device #20YearRule "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

I am sure you can envisage the panic which would follow an announcement by PIRA that a small(!) nuclear, device had been placed in Belfast City Centre and would be detonated at a certain time if demands were not met.

Likewise, if a terrorist group said they would release anthrax germs in some part of the Province.

Those quotes from January 1991 are from a letter memo written by C Richardson to colleagues in the NIO Emergency Planning Branch (EPB). They are contained in an inch thick orange of correspondence about Northern Irelands contingency plans for a nuclear, biological or chemical attack, gathered by William Gallagher from the EPB. His file marked NIO/28/1/12A [selective scan] has been released under the 30/20 Year Rule and is now available to read in the Public Records Office.

Back in 1991 emergency planning officials considered the possibility that the IRA could threaten to detonate a small nuclear or biological device. They had moved on from the fear that a Russian satellite would drop out of orbit and spray its nuclear core over the landscape.

C Richardson was responding to a briefing from Ms Jane Harrison (though shes referred to as Mr Harrison in some of the papers) who worked in the Home Offices Emergency Planning Division.

Her paper was neatly summarised by the NIO as addressing peace-time emergency where terrorists threatened the use of nuclear, chemical or biological means, by improvised devices, to achieve their political objectives. A scribble in the margin mentions operations codenamed SCARAB and ABSOLUTION.

This was the only discussion of paramilitary nuclear, biological or chemical attacks I found in the file.

Strange? But there is method in this madness. It may soon come before Israels highest court.

The present leaders of the party, Binyamin Netanyahu and his fellows, are afraid that the people who are now seeking to register as Likud members are really settlers in the occupied territories, who want to take over the Likud, while in practice remaining loyal to their own parties, which are even more extremist.

One of the present Likud members of the Knesset has submitted a bill that may well be unique in the world.

It arises from the fear that these new Likud members wil...

In 21st century Britain, law obedient citizens are subject to police raids and state terror for expressing their thoughts about the Israeli regime and its forceful lobby.

Yesterday I posted the following humorous meme on my Facebook page:

Within minutes reports and testimonies of British victims of police raids popped up on my page. I am sharing a few of them here. As you can see, none of those police actions led to criminal charges. We have a good reason to suspect that we are dealing here with an orchestrated Orwellian campaign that is designed to interfere with our ability to think freely and express those thoughts.

US Faces Erosion of Its Military Might "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Defense Secretary Jim Mattis declared in June that he was shocked upon his return to the Pentagon by the poor state of the US military's readiness for combat. It was widely believed that the statement was just another attempt to convince lawmakers that the military needed more money. Perhaps, it was one of the reasons, but a series of accidents followed to confirm the fact that something is wrong in the state of Denmark. These are not the best days for the US military beset by problems. Some experts believe the United States is facing erosion of its military might.

Downsizing cost trap awaits retirees five reasons to be wary "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Add up all the neglected costs of downsizing and retirees have good reason to be wary of making the move. Its time to debunk the myth of zero housing costs in retirement if we want to understand why retirees resist downsizing. Retirees have at least five reasons to be wary of the costs of downsizing. [Article first published at https://theconversation.com/downsizing-cost-trap-awaits-retirees-five-reasons-to-be-wary-80895 on 31 July 2017.]

Retirees living in middle-ring suburbs face frequent calls to downsize into apartments to free up larger allotments in these suburbs for redevelopment. Retirees who fail to downsize into smaller units and apartments are viewed as being a greedy, baby-boomer elite, stealing financial security from younger generations.

It also makes sense to policymakers for retirees to move into less spacious accommodation and make way for high-density housing. Housing think-tank AHURI fosters this view. Yet seniors remain resistant to moving, in part because of the ongoing costs they would face.

The concept of zero housing costs in retirement is based on a 1940s view of a well-maintained, single dwelling on a single allotment of land where the mortgage has been paid off. This concept is incompatible with medium- and high-density housing and refusing to acknowledge ongoing housing costs may cause significant poverty for retirees.

Reason 1 upfront moving costs are high

When a house is sold the owner receives the sale funds minus the real estate and legal fees. When the same person then buys a different property to live in, they pay legal fees plus stamp duty.

For cities such as Melbourne and Sydney, these costs are likely to exceed A$70,000.

These high transfer costs may mean it is not cost-effective for the person to move.

PNG Civil Aviation Minister Alfred Manase aims to lower cost of Air travel "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Papua New Guinea  Civil Aviation Minister, says he wants to see the high price of the aviation industry lowered during his term in office.
Alfred Manase says, the high cost of air travel is an hindrance to businesses and minimizes people's choices to travel both domestically and internationally.

Minister Manase said this when outlining his plans for the Aviation Industry during his handover-takeover ceremony with former minister, Davis Steven.
"Sometimes we all are in a rush to make money to repay loans, and we increase costs, and the passengers we want to carry do not travel.
"So it is better get the costs down to carry more passengers and in that way I think it makes more business sense.

"That is an area I will be looking at in the course of the next five years. To minimize costs so that we get more Papua New Guineans traveling, like what the out-going minister had said, to get the unflown, flying.
"Therefore the NAC and the transport sector have to get more people flying in (to Port Moresby) to be able to use the benefits of this terminal (infrastructure) and travel more.
"And that can only happen if the cost is minimized."

Could Astronauts Make Tools From Pee During Long Space Trips? "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Arthur T Knackerbracket has found the following story:

You may've heard that astronauts on the International Space Station recycle their own pee into drinking water, but space travelers could also one day upcycle their own urine into tools and other useful items.

Researchers from Clemson University are exploring ways that strains of yeast can be used to convert nitrogen from urine and carbon dioxide from astronauts' breath (or perhaps the atmosphere of Mars) into useful substances like nutrients or polymers. One strain of engineered yeast creates polyester polymers that could be used in 3D printers to create needed tools or parts for a long space mission.

The researchers presented their work Tuesday at the 254th National Meeting & Exposition of the American Chemical Society (ACS) in Washington.

[...] Having "a biological system that astronauts can awaken from a dormant state" and start using to produce what they need, when they need it, is the project's motivation, Blenner said.

PNG Economic Plan launched "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Papua New Guinea Deputy Prime Minister and Treasury Minister Charles Abel, has launched the government's 100 Day Plan to kick start the implementation of the Alotau Accord 2.
Mr Abel launched the plan on Friday, saying the 25-Point 100-Days Economic Stimulus Plan is expected to resurrect and turn the economy from its downward plan and put it back on the path to recovery and growth.

He said, whilst the medium term outlook is positive, the government is determined to undertake some immediate interventions after consultation with government agencies, development partners and the business community to take these steps.
Mr Abel says the government has placed the plan into five categories which will see them maintaining fiscal discipline and boost foreign exchange, grow the country's revenue, strengthen the economic base, improve it's governance record and acting strategically to turn back the economy.
The country's Treasurer also says under this plan, the government will not be imposing any more taxes on anyone but overhaul and simplify it, to make it fairer and easier to collect what is due, move to self reliance by generating energy from the oil, gas and hydro, grow our own rice or find a locally sourced alternative, because these are some of the highest government's expenditures.

PNG Foreign Mininster Pato commits to fight Human Traficking through APEC process "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Foreign Minister, Rimbink Pato, has committed to Papua New Guinea advancing measures to stop human trafficking and modern-day slavery in the APEC Region.
Accompanied by Minister for Immigration and Border Security, Hon. Petrus Thomas MP, Foreign Minister Pato was speaking at the Bali Process Government and Business Forum in Perth, Australia, last week where he said action that will save lives must be stepped up.
Human trafficking is a scourge, a blight on humanity, and an anathema to the free world, Foreign Minister Pato said to the audience of Ministers and business leaders from 45 countries.
From the poorest to the most developed countries, right now, people are being trafficked and their rights denied.

We all have a role to play, regardless of the size or power of our country or Government.
In Papua New Guinea, we have uncovered people smuggling crimes, and working with our partners including Australia, we have interrupted these activities and made arrests.
We are continuing to step-up border control protection measures that will detect further illegal activities. Be it modern-day slavery in the fisheries sector, or the exploration of people in the sex trade, and other instances of forced labour, Papua New Guinea takes this issue very seriously.
Foreign Minister Pato said Government cannot tackle the problem of human trafficking on its own, but must work with the private sector, and the upcoming APEC Transport Ministerial Meeting in Port Moresby will advance this agenda.
We have to work with the transportation industry to interrupt supply chains and networks in this awful trade in human misery.
In October this year, Papua New Guinea will host the 10th APEC Transportation Ministerial Meeting.

APEC has been proactive in encouraging collaboration, through the APEC Anti-Corruption and Transparency Working Group, to combat the problem of human trafficking in the Asia-Pacific region.
Considering transportation networks are exploited by traffickers, I expect our engagement through APEC will make an important contribution to dealing with this problem.
I will convey the outcomes of this Bali Process forum to Papua New Guineas Transport Minister, to be presented at the 10th APEC Transportation Ministerial Meeting in Port Moresby.

There is no place for human trafficking and smuggling in the modern world, and Papua New Guinea will take the strongest stand to detect, apprehend and prosecute...

The Great Salt-Sodium Hoax: Eating More Salt Might Actually Save Your Life "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

Our body is 70% water. Salt is NEEDED as a conductor to create an electrical current through the body.

It helps to stimulate muscles and nerves amongst other things.

Health Impact News writes:

Despite the growing evidence that low sodium causes more harm than high sodium, and using unprocessed salt has more benefits than commercial processed table salt, the mostly unsubstantiated belief that salt needs to be demonized persists. The revelations of good science are continually crushed by the pressures of public health policy.

Or as Dr. Kendrick states,

the salt hypothesis is rather like a monster from a 1950s B movie. Every time you attack it with evidence it simply shrugs it off and grows even stronger.

To this day, the American Heart Association (AHA) considers consuming more than 2,300 milligrams (mg) of sodium a day, which is the FDA and other government guidelines limit, too much, while recommending an ideal limit of no more than 1,500 mg per day (around a half teaspoon) for most adults. (Source)

But in order to be at the 2,300 mg sodium limit, one needs to consume over 5,000 mg of salt as sodium chloride (NaCl). So are there really any concerns to most peoples salt consumption today in terms of eating too much?

Enter Dr. DiNicolantonio to Continue the Attacks on the Salt Hypothesis Monster

Just recently in 2017, another highly credentialed medical expert has come out with the same message and more. Dr. James DiNicolantonio, Pharm. D., is the author of recently (2017) published book, The Salt Fix: Why the Experts Got It All Wrongand How Eating More Might Save Your Life.

San Francisco, USA extreme right rally flops "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

This video from the USA says about itself:

Minefield For Nazis Planned By Dog Owners

25 August 2017

Dog owners in San Francisco want to prepare a smelly surprise for a right wing rally in their city. Brett Erlich, Grace Baldridge, and Amberia Allen, the hosts of The Young Turks, tell you how theyre planning on fighting back.

When a group of far-right activists come to San Francisco to hold a rally this Saturday, they will be met by peace activists offering them flowers to wear in their hair.

Also, dog shit. Lots and lots of dog shit.

Hundreds of San Franciscans plan to prepare Crissy Field, the picturesque beach in the shadow of the Golden Gate Bridge where rightwing protest group Patriot Prayer will gather, with a generous carpeting of excrement.

I just had this image of alt-right people stomping around in the poop, Tuffy Tuffington said of the epiphany he had while walking Bob and Chuck, his two Patterdale terriers, and trying to think of the best way to respond to rightwing extremists in the wake of Charlottesville. It seemed like a little bit of civil disobedience where we didnt have to engage with them face to face.

Tuffington, a 45-year-old artist and designer, created a Facebook event page based on the concept, and the dog owners of San Francisco responded in droves. Many have declared their intention to stockpile their shitpiles for days in advance, then deliver them in bags for the site. (The group is also planning to reconvene on Sunday to clean up the mess and hug each other.)

AGC for gr-satellites "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

In a previous post I discussed my BER simulations with the LilacSat-1 receiver in gr-satellites. I found out that the "Feed Forward AGC" block was not performing well and causing a considerable loss in performance. David Rowe remarked that an AGC should not be necessary in a PSK modem, since PSK is not sensitive to amplitude. While this is true, several of the GNU Radio blocks that I'm using in my BPSK receiver are indeed sensitive to amplitude, so an AGC must be used with them. Here I look at these blocks and I explain the new AGC that I'm now using in gr-satellites.

The basic BPSK receiver that I'm using in GNU Radio is show below. An FLL Band-Edge block is used first for coarse frequency correction, a low pass filter takes out some of the noise off the sides of the signal, the Polyphase Clock Sync performs clock recovery and RRC filtering, and the Costas loop acts as a PLL to lock to the phase of the carrier.

Coherent BPSK receiver

It turns out that all the three blocks in this chain (besides the low pass filter) have feedback loops with discriminators that assume a signal of amplitude 1. Let us analyse this in detail, starting by the Costas loop, which is probably the best known and simplest algorithm amongst the three used here.

Recall that a Costas loop works by using a phase detector to measure the phase of the signal and then using this measure as an error input in a feedback loop to try to drive the phase to zero. The phase detector of a BPSK Costas loop should be insensitive to phase changes of 180, meaning that it should output zero both for a phase of 0 and a phase of 180. Otherwise we just get a regular PLL, which is sensitive to phase changes. Mathematically, the optimal phase detector for a BPSK Costas loop is \arctan(I/Q) ...

Saudi Coalition: Technical Mistake in Deadly Yemen Strike "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"

RIYADH, Saudi Arabia The Saudi-led coalition battling rebels in Yemen says an airstrike that killed at least 14 civilians, including eight members of a single family, was the result of a technical mistake.

Coalition spokesman Col. Turki al-Maliki said in a statement that Fridays bombing in the capital, Sanaa, was accidental and unintentional.

He expressed sincere sympathy in his statement Sunday, and said the planned target of the airstrike was a legitimate military objective belonging to the Houthi rebels, who control the capital.

The bombing in the neighborhood of Fag Attan struck a three-story building occupied by at least three families. It came just days after at least 41 people died when aircraft bombed a small hotel in the town of Arhab, north of Sanaa.

New Delhi: While Hindu-right organisations, under the patronage of the Narendra Modi government, are claiming spaces within the spectrum of associations with instrumental roles to play in the Indias nationalist movement, the Indian Council of Historical Research (ICHR) the primary government-sponsored institution for funding historical research and publications has found itself in the dock for allegedly trying to bury historical work that looks into the counter-productive role played by the Sangh parivar during the freedom struggle.

Renowned Indian historian Arjun Dev has alleged that the ICHR, probably under the influence of the Modi government, has been sitting on a manuscript that he submitted two years ago on August 1, 2015. The manuscript is part of the ICHRs Towards Freedom series, which was conceived as a project to compile records and documents from the last ten years of the freedom struggle (1938-1947).

GCR/RV SITREP: "Enslavement" -- August 27, 2017 "IndyWatch Feed Allworld"



Source: Dinar Chronicles

People ask me why currency is still being sold online if it's so valuable?

To put more money on the streets? Yes. But no.

To discharge all bad debt as to covert it into new digital credits to hydrate the new system? Also yes, but also no.

The reason is to teach the life mastery lesson of enslavement.

The Elders are releasing yet trapping as many white males as possible with the blessing of infinite wealth, and at the same time burdening them all with the unknown bondage of controlling the world's wealth.

Yosef, you done lost your mind. Best to check yourself before you wreck yourself.

Still I propose they are teaching the entire western world (Anglo-Saxons) a life mastery lesson about the illusion of monetary blessings with the burden of managing Christ's wealth (aka spiritual enslavement).

Just as they were once asked to endure the same burden when accepting protection responsibilities for the global collateral accounts over 400 years ago.
